The cry that Earnest and Noble women Are daily becoming More rare that the places of the Brave hear Ted and gentle Are usurped by the frivolous and dissipated is one that is by no Means new. Two Hundred years ago the wits of England indulged in the same cant and said the same smart things in regard to the same matter and Long before that time the Prophet had asked the people of hrs Day Why they said that a the former Days were better than these a and rebuked them roundly by telling them that they a did not consider wisely concerning this we have heard Many a reverend grannies a both with and without petticoats dwelling at length upon the degeneracy of the men and women of the present Day a no Days like the old Days no such Wise men now As those that Laid Sage hands upon their Young Heads no such mothers As their mothers and inferentially no such Young men and women now As they were in their prime.
