The Wireath.


Among the various addresses which have been received, we find no one written in a style more ea. sy and familiar, than that of the

Evening Poft. It is not so highly seasoned with salt and pepper as the Connecticut “ Sketches ;" but it has, never. theless, many excellent turns. As we cannot, con. sistently with our plan, publish the whole, we se. lect the following passages :

In days of yore, e'er type of lead,
Had shewn its alphabetic head ;
When no Gazette had yet unfuriid
Its wings, to fly around the world,
Or Post was known of Eve or Morn,
Save Post who blew the signal horn;
Or Herald, but the common crier,
Or Citizen, a public liar ;
Or Mercury, but from above,
Who bore the mighty mail of Jove ;
And only one Aurora seen,
Of purple Mory, thou blushing Queen!
Unlike that Drab, devoid of shame,
Who, borrowing, blasts thy spotless name.
Ah, then the times were dull indeed,
None went to coffee house to read,
Or spectacled his nose, to pore
The news and advertisements o'er ;
No List Marine was then display'd,
To greet the eyes of men of trade ;
Nor ever did in print appear,
The notice of the Auctioneer.
Of Foreign News, 'twas all in vain,
To wish one article to gain,
And town and country were in pother,
To learn the doings of each other.
But since the Press has lent its aid,
To Science, Politics and Trade,
Intelligence of every kind,
Flies o'er the world as swift as wind.
Whate'cr the incident may be,
Or whether on the land or sea,
Abroad, at home, good news or bad,
Whether it merry be or sad,
No matter what, if choice or rare,
The l'aper shall it all declare.

Next to the Chief of Mammoth fame! Yet when themselves in office are,

The question is--At Clinton's name,

“ Next Jefferson must Clinton stand, As only fit for monarchy,

“ To keep our President from straying, And Secret service money curse

" Who's fond a double game of playing : As being corrupt, or something worse ;

" A trimmer prone to every notion, Vote MILLIONS secret service money,

For views of personal promotion," Nor feel of conscience scruples any.

on the occasion, they certainly left the court perfect-

able barrier against the encroachments of jacobin-
ism.- For our part, we now, more than ever before,
feel persuaded of the importance, of the absolute ne-
cessity, of maintaining the independence and digni-
ty of our high judicial institutions. When Mr.
Freer was first arraigned to shew cause why an at-
tachment should not issue against him for contempt,
we freely expressed our feelings on the subject. --
We felt confident that Mr. Freer could not, intention-
ally, so far depart from the character of a federalist,
as to infringe the rights and privileges of our courts.
We now find that we were not mistaken : For,
though an attachment did issue against Mr. Freer,
(in consequence, it appears, of his not having ar-
peared personally to shew cause) yet the court being
fully satisfied that he had no mischievous intent,
discharged him, on his paying the trifling fine of
ten dollars!

While we cordially approve of the lenity, the candor, the uprightness of the court, in its treatment of this affair ; we cannot restrain the expression of our regret, that a printer, as honest and independent as our country affords, should by the per. secuting spirit of an “ infuriated" Attorney-Gen. eral, be subjected to the expence, vexation and trouble of at:ending courts, term after term, on a pretext, which the Judges, by their sentence, have pronounced frivolous.
