.. p mmmtmmmm ".. I . ffiB&2BB!Ul Tuesday June 9 1840. Experience has already or should Jiave taught ns that too much euro too much deliberation cannot be exer used in making choice of thoso who bhould represent us in the Congress of the nation ; and it is indeed matter of regret that heretofore the acts of our legislature have not been characterized by that wisdom and honesty which we should confidently expect from tho rep rescntatives of a free people. But tho reason of the disappointment is obvious nnd the remedy is in our own hands. If men are made legislators who are incapable of an honest and disinterest. cd discharge of the duties of private life how can we expect that in a public elation their acts will be uncorrnpted. No man ol sense would expect that nn oak by any care or cultivation would bviT apples ; and it is equally vain to presume that a man no malterhow tal- ented and experienced in the ways of tiie world whose intercourse with his -j.vlln.. .... ?o rt onvornnrl...
