of driving Burnsidc from Eapt Tennessee

We havu probably all nl" us met with in
stances in which n word heedlessly spoken
against the reputation ol u female has lie
come (lurk enough to overshadow her
whole existence. T- those who art! accus
tomed lint necessarily from had motives,
but from thoughtlessness to speak lightly
of females, we recommend these hints iw
worthy of consideration: "Never use u
lady's name in no improper place, nt an
improper linn, or in mixed company.
Never make uterinum about her that you
think uie untrue, or allusions that 'you feel
she herself would blush to hear. When
you meet with men who du not scruple to
make ihc of a woman's ninne in n reckless
and unprincipled maimer, slum them, for
they arc tho veiy worst members of the
community men Iimi in every sene 'of
honor every feeling of humanity. Many
a good und worthy woman's character has
been forever ruin- d. ami her heart brokm
by ti lie, inuiiitliiftiircd by some villain, and
repeattil where it should not have been.
anil in presence of thine whine little judg
ment could not deter them from c renin
ting the felt I ami brajging report. A
slander is soon propagated, ami the small
est tiling derogatory to a woman's charac
tor will fly on the wings of the wind, und
magnify as it circulates, until its mnustroiii
weight crushes its poor. iiiicoucious victim,
llcspccl the name of wi'inin ; for your
mothers mill sisters are women ; ns you
would have their fair name untarnished and
their lives utiimbitlered by the slanderer's
bitter tongue, heed the ill that your own
words may tiring upon llw mother, the
sister or tlic wife of hoiii" fellow creature.
