"An act to reatore the credit of the

art, and certain oPter Itailrnad Presidents
to do tba verv iliiiiss wbicb 1 urn asked
to prevent biro frofD doing. Of course,
then, this act must put out of tlie y,
before the plaintiff can get liia order.
Let aa then examine ibe Act. Cer
tainly rliere can be so objectioii to the ti
tle. 1 wo very (audible purposes an
pressed in it, and In th of tin m within the
cope of legislative power to wit : "To
restore tbe credit ol' lite State, and to fa
cilitate tbe construction of our unfinished
Railroads" The aTl reels on coneti
lutional obligation :the other is a matter
ol policy, addieseei to t he discretion.

To this requirement, I presume, there
can be no ebjectiot as accountability is
incident to all trusts aad ag--ucies.
The other requirement i "to return

everybody as being extraordinary. In
the first place, how is it that Qeneral But

Mr. Whittemore escaped the full penalty

1 he utility of tears to animals in gen-
ose who are

wiiu live midst the winds, is easy to un
derstand : for the eye would soon be
dh lien and blocked up like an onelean

and tvfresh it. A very little fluid is nec
essary to keep tbe eye clear and clean ;
bur here again we mast admire tbe won

when, through accident or hurt, the eye
bail bas ueed of more water thau usual
to cleanse it, nature .at ouce turns ud a
more abundant supply of tears. Thus,

insect creeps into tbe eve. tha eyelids fill
and run over at once with tears, and these

W ii If regard now to other tears those
we mean which proceed from m ral in

to Ire given of then is a prosy and mate-
