associations. If its operations were to be direct cd for the benefit of any one class, equivalent favors must, in justice be extended to the rest ; and the attempt to bestow such favors with an equal hand, or even to stlect those who should most deserve them, woulinever be successful. All communities arejapt'to'look to Govern. ment for too much. Even in our own country where its powers and duties are so strictly lim ited, we are p'rone to do so, especiallyat peri ods of sudden embarrassment aud distress. But this ought not to be. The framers of our ex ccllcnt Constitution, and the people who appro ved it with calm and sagacious deliberation, acted at the time on a sounder principle. They wiselyjudged that the lcss Government intcr feres with private pursuits, the better for the general prosperity.

One eve alight shone round herbed, And there she saw him stand Her infant, in his little shroud, A taper in his hand. "Dear moiher, bco, xay shroud is dry, And I can sleep once more!" And beautiful th...
