D omestic F aults .—-Homes are more
often darkened by the countinual recur*»
rence of small faults than by the actual pre«
ence of any decided vice. These evils are
apparently of very dissimilar magnitude;
yet it is easier to grapple with |he one
than the other. The eastern traveller
can combine his forc3 and hunt down the
higer that prowls upon his path; but he
can scarcely escape the mosquitoes that
infest tbe air he breaths, of the fleas tbaft
swarm the earth be treads. The drunkard
has been ktiown to renounce ?his darling
vice; t e slave to dress and extravagance, -
her besetting sin ; but the waspish temper/ :
the iritaring tone, rude, dogmatic manners, ♦ *
and the hundred nameless negligence
that spoil the beauty of association,

found,” said Addison, “that the men, who
are really the most fond of woman, and
who cherish for them the' highest respect- >
arc seldom the most'popular with the sex.
Men of great assurance, whose tongues are
lightly hung, who make words supply the'
places of ideas, and place compliment in
the room of sentiment, are their favorites.
A due respect for woman leads to reppet-
ful action towards them, a|d respect
is taken by them for neglect or want of
love.”
