voice The Pkoti.k Ark uiunriEK
There is a get of dirty, tlackmard newsna-
per scribblers, edi&rs and contributors, who
Mtisfced nnless they are maligning
some one, or 'pouring out their bilge-water
upon bodies of men, and whose only protection
from puiifshment is their profound insignificance.
We have noticed in some of our cotemporaries
of late the most abusive scurrillous, libellous
attacks upon the present Legislature, a venting
of dirty spleen and . venomous malice which,
while it can neither vy v.nr dishonor its object,
deserves the sev rv:tl: tepre (tension. An Sicn
orfcfrfe .enemy we'ver "ir.snlis the vanquished, ?.!
a fallen foe but diahonoi -s ?.. d-gfder: i.iMwell"
by aspersing and abusing in& eou itior. We
contend that the liberty of the p reus Is made
an unwarrantable license, its dignity ""degraded.
its integrity violated and it honcr outraged
when, through the column of a 'newspaper, the
members of the Legislature are Styled an ass
beaded et of political irtxsters" having 'no
more idea of legislation than a swine has of
revelation." Yet we find just such a piece ot
abominable scurrility i.ot only permitted to le
published but endorsed aud enjoyed by an edi
tor, shame upon 'film. That members of the
Leg iala tare have their fault a other men We
are uot'prtTred to deny; neither do we claim
for every member the capacity of a Blaekstoue
arid the intellect of a Webster: but we do
c-afru that the people have sent competent meu
there to take charge of their interests aud rep
resent their wishes, aud we further claim that
their position, if nothing else, entitles them to
common rospect aud ordinary courtesy at least.
It really seems that in this day and genera
tion partizau vindictiveness has no limits and
party malice no bounds. Meu are dissatisfied
with the privilege of abusing an adversary when
engaged in -'the furious fight." They follow
lnwi to the privacy of his own hearthstone; they
malign his ancestors aud defame his owu pri
vate character; they heap infamy upon his sup
porters aud asperse his personal friends; they
follow him to tfiHs halls of Legislation, or the
threshold of his 'official station, aud shower
"curses loud and deep" upon his head. Some,
happily, but a few, descend to low vulgarity
aud employ the slang of the tap-room and the
profanity of he rowdy&club against political
opponents', Vno are too far above them in gen
tility to be 'reached by their missiles, and too
robust in their virtue aud integrity to feel the
venonl b'f their fangs.
That the Legislature of North Carolina caii
suffer in any manner whatsoever from the ma
lignity aud scurrility of newspaper scribblers is
absurd: but that the members of that body are
entitled to respect, and their position tb that
republican deference implied in tHe authority
with which the people have vested them is un
questionable. For the honor of the press; for the sake of
its character and its integrity, as well as the
gentility of its conductors, put a stop to this
pitiful, vulgar, dishonorable, bootless warfare

On a bcautifnl sunny morning ia January, when the
frost-work still lay like a veil .of wlvery gossamer
upo- thi ground, a lovely luaideij was tripping blithe
ly along when she mot a handsome youth with whom
shj was acquainted. "Where are you going, in, such
haste?" asked she in a voice as sweet as a spring-birds
song. ' I am going.'" said he gaily, down fo MAR"
SH L.I . JE!SUI"S Saloon to get a morning
plate of his iirst rate Oysters, and to pat or u V olu
account as all honorable young-men ough to ds&
"V11," said she; "and as alt honest oi.o-MKx' ouht to
do also"' and she tripped, merrily away,Vhile 'the
young man, with a smile on his face and his pocket
nook 111 his hand, hastened on to Jessup:8 How many
beautiful .stories like this might be written, if' every
body would follow that nice young man's example?
