BY JOSEPH LANCASTER.

" All nations, indeed, of which we have any account, in be.
coming rich, have become profligate; a torrent of depraved morality has,
in every opulent state, borne down with irresistible violence those mounds
and fences, by which the wisdom of legislators attempted to protect chastity,
sobriety, and virtue. If any check can be given to the corruption of a state
increasing in riches and declining in morals, it must be given, not by laws
enacted to alter the inveterate habits of men, but by education adapted
to form the hearts of children to a proper sense of moral and religious
excellence.”-Bishop of Landaff's Charge, 1788.
