it is usual to look back lllton the past

States, whose government is their
Creature, subject to their behests: who

Mr. Seward was a great man. He

Peace to his memory.
Several bills have been introduced
in the Legislature intended to sii
prcss gambling and prevent its recur
rence in tlie State. Gambling is ac
knowledged to lie an evil of the gravest
diameter, and too much care cannot
lie shown by our law-makers in kt
fecting a bill or bills for it suppres
sion and interdiction. Tlie livllnlin in
alluding to tills subject says that "at
almost every session of every Legisla-
tore throughout the Union, acts of j
, , t .
this character (anti-gambling bills) are
passed, and hi nearly every Instance
some fatal delect is afterwards discov
ered which renders tliem inoperative
or void." And the IMIettn argue
from this the Importance of perfecting of the Emperor at Berlin is now re
one good bill on this subject, rather j garded as intended to quiet the unrest
than to consume time on a half dozen
others. This point should have weight
with our Legislators.
Or Nome Service.
Ill one thing, at least, has Horace
Greeley lieen of service to the coun
try. He has giver, to the jieople a
practical illustration of how a man
look, acts, and seaks, when entirely
diseased with the Presldental fever.
He htisadvocated both shies of various
questions in Ills time, and in his recent

The bill appropriating $100,000 tor

We suppose this measure will meet

as good as could lie selected, and no
one who rightly appreciates the needs
of the State in this direction, can
charge the Legislature with extrava

There are good reasons fta- believing
