To begin to build at the foundation is te, begin
at the right place, so to begin at the foundaticm
on which a man has reared his political' struc
ture—built his political faith r -may enable us
to form more correct notions 'of the princirles
by which Ito is govented. Inthisway too, we
may form a, correct conclusion in; reference to
the man, his sympathies, his notions of right
and wrong, his prejudicies, his_ passions - rind
his preferences. We may see him as ho has
been and is, judge of the metives that actuate
and sway his mind and judgment, and general-
l judge correctly as to his strength of intellect,
consistency and firmness of character. Search
out the causes that control the man and you
have the man in all his strength and greatness.
If only the most powerfurand convincing rea
sons can Asko his faith,.influencehis nrind,
and-ontrol his judgment, hiS character cannot,
be questioned for furriness and strength: But
on the contrary when : light and trivial causes
move him about at random, when every excite
ment that springs into being to live its brief
,hour and Vanish, weeps him from the rock of
his purpose mid sends him'adrift on the frothy
waves of those popular current's that ebb and
flow at thetapriee of unthinking merr,hovvever
dazzling may be the C ' SterlOt; we may rest as
sured that there is weakness in the man. We
aro aware that it is a pleasant duty kir some
to perform, to load others with fulsome and
sycophantic adulation' We say duty, be
. cause some seem to consider it a duty to act
thus towards their fellows, whom; circumstan-
ces and fortune may have favored at the ex
pense of merit. Such persons only wait the
smile of soft words, of titled dignity to lose
sight of their principles, contradict theirloudest
professions, and pliant as a lover at the_ shrine
of beauty; they'll bend the supple knee, and
yield up their ovvii'martlm' ess.' Simple hearted

name in connection with that office, long be

him in nomination, was sufficient to bring up
on him vile and loathsome abuse unmeasured.

his triumphant nomination the =ncispecies of
