Marks of a Gentleman. No man is a
gentleman, who, without provocation, would
treat with incivility the humblest of
his species. It is vulgarity for which no
accomplishment of dress or address can
ever atone. Show me the man who desires
to make every one round him happy, and
wnose greatest solicitude is never to give
cause of offence to any one, and I will show
you a gentleman' by nature and practice,

Rocky Point Meeting. The meeting
at Rocky Point yesterday resulted very fa
vorably for Mr. Eagles. Larkins was so
badly beaten by his opponent in discussion
hat he retired "very sick." Leading
conservative gentlemen congratulated Mr.
Eagles on his manly conduct, and the re
marks of the conservative orator, Colonel
Frazicr, were so terribly scathing toward the
renegade Larkins that poor Miller burst into
ears and was carried from the meeting on
a shovel ! t

'For the Post
Ma. EDrron : In a recent decUloribf the
Supreae Court deliyered by Ilcade, Justice,
there is appended a note, having reference
to, the subject matter of the opinion, in
which Jt is tiated that the ' prootot ; Uie

therefore held responsible for ' depriving
these gentry of their " divine right " to hold '
all the small offices in the land. It is an
insult to the virtuo and intelligence which
is all to be found in the ranks of the De
