A Dutch ftcainer, bound on an ex

These sre but a few of the mere

The yonng should be warned against

The everlasting plea of petiy fraud or
open dishonesty, is, its necessity or
It is neither necessary nor profitable.
The hope is a deception and the ex
cuse a lie. The severity of eompeti
tion affords no reason for dishonesty
in word or deed. Competition is fair,
but not all methods of competition.
A mechanic may compete with a
mechnnic, by rising earlier, by great

punctuality, greater thoroughness, by
employing letter materia ; by a more
scrupulous fideli'y to promises, i.nd
by facility in accommodation. A mer

by a better selecth n of goods, by more
obliging manners, by more rigid hon

kindness, taste, genius and skill, are
the only materials oi ail riguuui com

a defeat of his virtue ? What pofpe
rity can compensate the plundering of
a man's heart? "A good name is
rather to be chosen than great riches :
sooner or later evtry man will find it so.
With what dismay would Esau have
sorrowed for a lost birthright, had he
lost also the pitiful mess of pottage
for whieh he sold it ? With what
double despair would Judas have

which were to buy bis infamy ? And
