manner with ease, and r.quiS'S oaiy two levers

whose low instincts will not allow of their
conducting themselves in a decent and
respectable manner while attending places
of worship, is to stay at home, and never
obtrude their presence on respectable)
people. It is not a matk of independ
ence, good seuse, or good breediog, to at
tend any place of worship for the purpose
cf mocking its ceremonies, and behaving
io a manner that would disgrace a Dig
