A NOVEL TEST.

" tvery man," saye Burke; '« his hie price."
There is a great deal Wore intolved in this than is
generally supposed ; and hundreds who indiikint-
ry reject it as a libel on human more, show, al
mo=t daily, that they have their price. The senti
ment just quoted is most commonly understood to
mean, that there is a certain monepeonsidergion, •
by which every man may be tempted into a viola
tion of hnnut and honesty. Butt this is only its
most palpable and grossest signification j and, thus
interpreted, it well not bear a universal application,

his price. Another, whose love of reputation, or
desire to have the credit of being a truly ilboesi
man, in order to forward his interests, leads him to
strict rectitude before the world, will withold a 'six
pence or shilling of the full amount really due to
a porter, coal-beaver, wood-sawyer, or other poor
persons from whom he has received a service, and
experience a‘feeling of satisfaction at teeing saved
the paltry sum. Is there a question of the fact;
that such men have their price! None. Hun
