THE LAW OF LIBEL LIBELLOUS. The actual law of libel is one of the most univholesome of all the laws by which society is tormented. The law of libel regards, solely, the interests of the individual;' \mtirely ignoring regard for the interests of the common weal. Everyone is forbidden to blame anvone— however justly, .even though it should be for the good of all. While every , one is permitted to praise anyone—however unjustly— even ' although it should be for the evil of all. ? October 30, 1859. Colonel II. Clinton.
