ILtterattture altl ettitce. RIDING THE STANG. [WE copy the following article, which is some wvhat apropos at present, from Chambers' Edin 'burgh Journal, for September last. Our readers will recollect that we alluded some time since to the practice, formerly prevalent in Scotland, and still not entirely forgotten, of doing public justice on offenders against public decency, of either sex. The practice we allude 'to was popularly denomi nated Riding the Stang, and consisted in ele vating the husband who was ill to his wife, or the wife who was ill to her husband, either in person or in efligy, on a ladder or pole and parad ing him through the village ; giving him the benefit of a sound ducking in the largest horse-pond which the place afforded. Now supposing such a practice to be introduced into this colony, and the whole Artillery Corps to be mounted at once, we verily believe the procession would reachto. Para matta.
