The above quotation is All for Buncomb and nothing Shorter or rather for the dimes. Well there is no Uso in us butting our Heads against the tide of Public opinion this is a circus going Community and All we can say is a let Mem we wonder if there were As Many people attended the circuses and Monkey shows As were at the Barbecue last week that is somewhere Between 400 and 10.000 the doings of a a a Man about1 town a of the journal or inner properly speaking the City item Quot leaves Terra Firma entirely and ascends into the Vaspory Region of a a imagination and fancy on the Back of n a grunted he certainly bos same sow by the ears whether it is the right or wrong one this deponent Snith not hear it squeal. A a yesterday thursday n trial on an indictment for an assault nil Battery came off in the circuit court which was the twelfth or thirteenth that have Ori Giusti a from n pet pig. A trial or two of the right of properly opened the drama four Orfio slander suits followed in Quick succession words grew to blows and actions of trespass and indictments succeeded. Thousands of dollars have been spent a neighbourhood embroiled friendships broken in the cause of a rented pig weighing some eighty pounds which had been pelted Ami marked and dogged Uway by half the township 1 unfortunate pig i alike battered and wandered from farm to farm unconsciously Breeding Law suits beguiling mischief which were Long to survive it which would rankle and canker when there was not even a grease spot left to toll Turnt once it lived. In life it was a Bone of Contention and in death it fell into the remorseless jaws of Law Brenk tag suitors. A heaven Only knows the burning wrongs the bitter curses the vows of vengeance the lost time the anxiety the agony which came ill the world with that pig and clothed it us with n garment. And thus it is with Many a lulling Apple May Lead a Newton to unravel the riddles of the skies n gambling Goose May save a Rome from ruin and change the fuse of the human race a cuff upon the cars of a Byrun May make him pout to All eternity in his Hubli st poems and Breed n race of misanthrope a wherever a congenial spirit is found n Fork stuck in die Eye of a Prescott during n College spree May Donmore to write his in Norial histories Tymn nil his previous studies a smile meant Only for one heart n try thiong it irradiate n thousand and finally a i Lukiine Tho world.

The following letter was written by a gentleman of this City to his Friend and not intended for publication. As it contains wholesome advice to the Young which if read and thought upon As it deserves to be will doubtless tend to do Good with this View we have prevailed on him to allow us to insert it in the locomotive. Ludi Anapolis oct. 6, 1848. My deah sin a without preliminary remark 1 would suy organize organize seems to be the political watchword of the Day and i realty feel As parents we should go it stronger still revolutionize not for example our glorious Republic but to speak distinctively Tho habits of our sons and the youth comm titled to our charge and guidance. To effect much we must go heart and hand stand together shoulder to shoulder. For one 1 have looked on the scene of Folly and Idle cuss until 1 have almost despaired of effecting any change alone and for that reason 1 have thought proper to address you on this subject. Owing to the similarity of our situations and my Long acquaintance with you and your struggles in life i have Felt More than Ordinary sympathy for you in this matter. Why is it i would inquire that some of the youths of our City Are so far in Advance of others of like advantages Here will be found the True secret. The reason is obvious to every observer who looks to cause and effect. Those who achieve the most for themselves their families and society around them arc such is improve their time to the Best Advin. Inge love their Homes honouring and obeying their parents. While other youths less worthy spend much of their precious time loitering about the haunts of the Idle the dissipated in eating and drinking and it May be ill gambling exhibiting their caught up circus wit and Low grimaces both of which ought to be confined to their legitimate origin the Genius of the Sable performers and those of like calibre. For myself i have no desire to witness such scenes but on Tho contrary 1 detest them As pregnant with the germs of that which tend to obscenity vulgarity and viciousness. The sooner therefore the Council prohibits such performances the better for the dear youth of our City tt3 they have not firmness and principle sufficient of themselves to keep aloof from such places. I was pleased to notice some time since an article in the locomotive which assumes the tru ground in reference to such matters. The editors will doubtless add much to the strength and t ii Cliency of their paper by Tho Freedom with which they in pc spoken of the actors in their nightly carousels near these places of in Briety and gluttony. In these Days of Temperance and Reform even barbecues with the cider Ace Rupani Klit. When our youth form a part of the mass that r it it hither present n scene pleasant enough p re i a to those who look along to the and regardless if the Means employed to secure it irrespective re consequences but to the faithful Parent who looking wisely at causes can int be d i ived in . A it r effects. It is True that much very aim h Mil d Dot leads on the individual or individuals who i and in matters of this kind. But to Ieav this Brunch of the subject with the Hart we reduce to it a. My my old and much esteemed Friend can we do bettor than we Are doing As parents to elevate thought and enlarge the volume of mind in each and every one of our youth they Are not like the Man who never had a dozen of thoughts in All his life or reason Little above Tho of but they have Powers and should improve them. How mortifying it is to see this neglected and indulgence in eating drinking and participation in Folly sought after As though it was Tho Only aim in life. Deep mortification is experienced when we witness this rather than pressing Onward endeavouring by every Menns in their Power to qualify themselves for usefulness and the High regard of the Wise and the Good where Ever their fortunes May be cast. It is often said that the present is a Reading and thinking age. If this remark be True it is doubtless one of great improvement and development. In every age since the first settlement of our country very Many men have risen to great distinction mid the most embarrassing circumstances. The faithful and determined youth will find it profitable to him to read understanding the biographies of such men As William Penn Jorge Washington Benjamin Franklin and John Quincy Adams.
