inanities — The great bellwether, the daily press, leads the column, and the whole flock follow, to the imminent danger of a man's brains who may lift up his hands and try to turn them back.--Let somebody, who has no more taste for or appreciation of poetry than a man born blind has for colors, but publish a silly laudation of any batch of rhymes in a newspaper, and the author of the rhymes is supposed henceforth to have received a passport to immortality as authentic as these granted by Col. Griswold to persons wishing to leave the city. The daily press, in fact, has constituted itself Provost-Marshal of Parnassus, and rules the promises as though they were under martial law. Slavery of opinion is a deplorable thing. But it seems to us inseparable from the condition of man. There are very few persons who think for themselves, and there never will be a greater number. The vast majority of mankind abhor the trouble it costs, and greatly prefer taking their opinions ready made.
