Sharp Practice Full fledged lawyers should never become editors. They get bo addicted to " sharp practice" that they learn to ignore- consistency and—something else; for instance: " He [Pollock] was so exceedingly anxious to let the people of Sullivan County know his opinion about the Nebraska bill, that he wrote a letter to a committee of free-soilers in that connly, wbich is certainly a curiosity in Its way. The Whig papers have refined to publish it, and so have even tbe rabid abolition journals."—Wayne Co. Herald.

Knmplarderi., ; : L Forthree days prthe present week, we have had to record four foul murders, done under the influence of rum. We use the term runt lo cover the whole list of inioiicalingirinki , whereby men are made brutes and savages, and society is h ourly afflicted by a worse than pestilence, famine, or war. Of these murders, one was committed on Tuesday, at Syracuse; one in this city on Monday, and «nother in this city yesterday, at the St. Nicholas Hotel—being tjje second stabbing case at that house within a month—and the fourth at Brooklyn, yesterday — perhaps a double murder. To these we might add a rum-murder of an Englishman, named Ashton, in Virginia, lust week, and we doubt not the files or the Mirror, would show almost a daily case for months past. Is not this a frig htful condition of things, and whatever the plea for individual liberty, the right of private judgment, &c, urged against ihe passage of the Maine law, can there be any longer a doubt that soci...
