a FRIDAY FEBRUARY 1852 NO 52 What is as grow Older BT KS Time most of us when Christmas Day all our ed world like a for us to miss or ring left nothing bound together all our home enjoyments hopes and grouped everything nnd every one the fire and made the little picture shining in our bright young eyes complete Time all so when our thoughts overleaped the boundary when there some one very dear we thought then verv ful nnd absolutely perfect wanting to the fulness of our when we were wanting too or we thought so which did as M the hearth by that some one sat and when we inlet twined with every and garland of our life that some one's name That uns the time fot the which have bright long arisen fiom us to shew 1 after mer rain in the pa list edges of the That was the time for the fied enjoyment of the things that were to be and never were and yet the things that were so leal in our resolute hope that it would be hatd to say now what realities achieved since have been Did that Christmas never re- ally come hen we und priceless who was our young choice were received after the happiest im- possible marriages by united ilies at on our When and sisters in law had always been rather cool to us before our relationship was dute us and when fathers and mothers overwhelmed us with Was that din- net never really alter which arose and and eloquently present in thu honored our 1 ite company and there exchanging friendship and forgiveness and founding an attachment riot to be surpassed in Greek or story which subsisted until Has that same lone ceased to care for pearl and monied that same for money and be- come Above all do we leally know now that we should probably have been if we won and worn the pearl and that we are without That Chi istmas u hen we had recently achieved so much fame when we had bean cat lied in triumph for doing something great arid good when we had won on honored and ennobled and arrived and were received at borne in a shower of leais of jov is ii possible that that Christmas has not come yet? And is our here at the best so constituted that pausing as we advance at such a noticeable in the tiack as this great birthday we look back things that never were as ly and full us gravely as on the things that have buen and aie gone or have been and still If it be so and so it seems to be must we come to the sion that lile is little tier than a and little the loves and that we crowd into Far be such miscalled phy fiorn us dear on Nearer and to our hearts be Christmas spirit which is the it of usefulness faithful dis- charge of duty kindness and It is in the last virtues that we air or should be strengthened by the unaccomplished visions of GUI youth for who shall sjy that they are teachers to deni gently even with the impalpable nothings of The as we grow older let us be thankful that the circle of our Christ quiet and contented litlle face we see home fairly written Shining from the word as from a star we see how when our graves are old other hopes than ours are other hearts lhan ours arc moved how other ways aie Low other happiness blooms ripens nnd no not for other homes and other bands of children not yet in being nor for ages yet to be arise and bloom and ripen to the end of Welcome everything Welcome a-i like what has been and what never was and we may hope lo be to shelter underneath the holly lo youi ces round the fire where what is sits In yonder shadow do we see furtively upon the blaze an enemy's By Christmas day we do forgive If the injury he has done us may admit of such com- let him cotne here and take his place li otherwise unhappily let him go hence assured we will never injure nor accuse him On this day we will shut out savs a low voice On Day we will shut out from our fireside Nothing Not the shadow of a vast city where the withered haves are Tying voice the shadow ihal darkens the whole Not the ow of the City of the Not even thai Of all in we will turn our faces toward that City upon Christmas and from its hosts those we loved among City Dead in the wherein we are together at this time and in the Presence that is here among us according lo the promise we will receive and not dismiss thy who are to Yes We can look upon these chil dren angels that alight so solemnly so beautifully among the children by the fire arid can bear to think how they from us angels unawares ns the Patriarchs did the playful are unconscious of their guests j but we can see see a radiant arm around one favorite neck as if there a templing of that child away Among the celestial figures there is one a poor boy on of a glorious beauly now of whom his ing mother it grieved her much to leave him heie alone for so many years as it was likely would elapse bifore he came lo such a little But he went and was upon her and in her hand she leads him There a boy who fell far away upon n burning beneath n buining sun and said Tell at home with my last love how much I could have wished to kiss them once but that 1 died contented and had done my Or was another over whom they read the words Therefore we con- sign his body to the and so con- him to the lonely ocean and on Or there was another who lay down to his rest in the daik shadows of great forests and on earth awoke no O shall they not from sand and sea and strivings associations and expands of lessons that Let us welcome one of them ond summon them to take their places by the hearth Welcome old aspirations glittering creatures of an ardent fancy to your We know loves among ces underneath the you and have not outlived you Welcome old projects and old however fleeting to your nooks the steadier lights that burn around us Welcome all that was ever real to our heaits and for the earnestness that made you real thanks to heaven Do we build no castles in the clouds Lot our thoughts fluttering like butterflies among these flowers of dien bear witness Before this bovj theie stretches out a future brighter than we ever looked on in our old romantic time but blight with honor and with truth Around this little head on which the sunny curls ed the graces sport as prettily as airily as when there was no scythe within the reach of time to shear away the curls of our first love Upon another girl's face near but smiling In town and village there are doors ard windows closed against the weather there are flaming logs heaped high there are joyous faces there is healthy music of voices Be all ungentleness at d harm excluded from the temples of the household gods but be these admitted with tender encourage They are of the time and all its and peaceful reassurances of the history that reunited even on earth the living and the dead ond of the broad beneficence and goodness that too many men have tried to tear to rc w shreds America Since the day that Columbus set foot on a new world America has been the land of and hope to atl who Europe a house of bondage e the of politics of religion of commerce and of fortune have fled for ttn generations preferring a clear field to a barren struggle Whenever the heart s c kened at the though of tyranny or it hap always occurred that beyond the western wave there lay a vast with many a hardy settler and many a rising City that offered a last re- for the expatriated virtues and fiat if need be might ona day turn the with overwhelming odds against t ic old hills of the and the s of ancient oppression old age of the world was on one side but its youth was on the other and a new of civilization had still to Hossom and bear upon a free soil How far those anticipations have been it is needless to say to a nation which beholds itself well nigh bered by fits across the tic Whatever has been denied us in this part of the world that extension of territory that predominance in European tint influence eur politics or i which might appear due to our industry and power has been given us n hundredfold in America Checkered our fortunes are in all parts of the vorld and not the least in the newest ve may yet see there the reward of many oils and the consultations of many re- at no time for the last three and has America worn youthful and promising an aspect to his country as at this moment j never ias it appeared so much in the light of a i in need a land of reffuge and our partner in many labors and many Could we suppose these islands ly planted in the midst of the Atlantic or opposite shores suddenly drawn nearer by some thousand miles or could we imagine some yet stronger caprice of fortune restoring the United States to the dependence they renounced of a century since that would hardly ex- press so great an approximation and so great a convergence of interests as what now see brought about by more nary methods This is the splendid theme of Mr Walker's address at chester It has often been the plea of the ambition of statesmen to urge the ration of different States for the purpose of defense or aggression for the tion of their and their altars or for A Lesson of Winter The grasshopper who having sung all Summer and being short of food nnd in the Autumn was advised by the ant to dance all Winter reads a lesson to many more than yet heed it Especially to all those unwise nnd improvident ents who spend hundreds if not thousands on the education of their children yet fail to qualify them for any independent un- failing mode of earning a livelihood this apologue addresses itself with great force To qualify a youth for the profession of a lawyer clergyman or doctor may be very well but no man is thus qualified until he has been taught how to earn his livelihood outside of such vocation He is not fitted for unbending an invincible integrity in a profession who has not been armed with the consciousness that be can earn a decent living outside of that pro for which he will not stand in- to any man's opinion Can't you give me to is now the anxious inquiry of thousands in our City winter is us business is on all hands hundreds who have for months found employment elsewhere are weekly flocking into the City while thousands who have been at work here but are thrown out by con- tractions of Trade and industry unite with them in the mournful give us something to Unfortunate we can give you no employment nor can we give you hope of obtaining it here For one or two something might be found or done but you are thousands and every day adds to your number The labor you know how to perform is now in demand any where there is no demand for vice of any kind here is glutted and cannot Our labor market be otherwise until Spring If false education and false pride had no every one wanting vork were capable of doing good work and precisely that most distress here every kind of it which is would still be much Winter from lack of

educated for professions some skillful and ready workers if work were to be had but all destitute ployed desperate and threatened with starvation eagerly pressing the inquiry you find me something lo be that system of Education which trains our young men fur dence instead of them for Teachers Doctors yers Clergymen them for Farmers or Mechanics so that they could live by hands if denied opportunity to live by their brains We know more of the the agonies thence resulting than most others but City Do we recollect her worn out whispering what could not be heuid and falling into that last sleep for O look upon her now O look upon her beauty her serenity hor changeless youth her The daughter of Jarius was recalled lo life to Hie but she more blest has braid the same voice saying unto her Arise for We had a friend who was our friend days with whom we often pictured the changes that were to comf upon our lives and merrily imagined how we would speak and walk and think and talk when we came to be old His destined habitation in the forest be brought home at such a the conquest of the world and There nas a dear a ly there have never been wanting reasons to be made a why any two nations should love one mourning in a house of joy another but there never was shown so and went her trackless way to silent sound a cause for amity and mutual sistance for community of interests and unity of action as it has been Mr er's good fortune to proclaim It is his fortune because he is the immediate author of the measure which constitutes the principal advance on the American side towards this happy reunion and be- cause he is able to discern the signs of the coming times Beyond the operation of cial disputes Mr Walker cast a prophetic eye at the great conflict between military and constitutional government which every day assumes a more serious which every day draws nearer to this Island and which will one Jay di- vivide the whole It is not for nothing that we possess a position given us between the New Old World a stepping stone from the Old to the New and of the new in the oid It is not for nothing that a gigantic State is fast growing up in the new world iting from us the principles of al freedom somewhat modified in Us culiar circumstances There are no two states in the whole world and never have been so bound lo one another so ally beneficial and so able n work gether aa the British Empire and the United States it impossible but that the whole of the continent of Europe should fill into the hands of military despots it seems equally impossible that toe with our American bretheren should lose our institutions or our enthusiasm for liberty Here then are he two parties in the great cause that threatens to divide and convulse the whole What will be

in the quiet of the trees that gird the remembrances arc cut in stone in common flowers growing in grass entwined with lowly brambles many a mound of earth A Common Falsehood We can scarcely take op a especial ly a religious seeing in it an to honesty and industry and following it up by saying that every individual who is honest and willing to work can in this country a good ling We have no doubt of the honesty of editors who make this statement They may see and know nothing of the misery and woe that is around them for they are loo apt to think that it is an easy thing for anybody to get as salray as comfortable a tire and as easy a chair as themselves They little heed the cold wind's fierce howl for there are no ciev ices through which it may enter their dwellings and the well fulled or arc a against their sufferings and they fancy it easy fot ethers to be like them They cannot comprehend what it is to work and the little necessaries of life that comes in as its scanty reward to him who toils the most But notwithstanding this constant cry that all honest industry cnn find its re- wad it is H falsehood and a false hope It is also a upon honest poor who find it impossible to obtain employ ment even if their honesty be vouched for by all who know them I been said a wise man of old and now I am old yet I have never seen the righteous forsaken nor his seed begging bread We fear that if he had lived at this ho would hardly have ventured lo utter thai saying unless he could excuse himself on the ground of the universal short comings of the lace and plead saying that there is none no not one It is only on this ground at the day that the first saying could be verified for as really righteous men and as truly righteous women as can be found are moat truly forsaken and their seed begging bread every day Our cities are full of paupers who are fed by the public bounty A day cannot be passed without meeting almost naked children begging bread or a few pennies to get it And will it do to brand all these as idle and Most ly may have been brought to their tute by means of drunkenness but the patient and mother and starving children are nevertheless realty forsaken But there are others We are almost daily in receipt of ters asking if work cannot be fond at something and some price They do not ask for alms they only ask the privilege of toiling at any thing that will bring a mere pittance It is but a day or two since a family was found in this city almost in a starving and freezing tion where husband was willing and anxious to work but day after day he had begged for the privilege in Yes instead of bread and work enough for honest industry goes begging for labor in our streets Honesty and try is a drug in the market How long shall the falsehood be rung in oar ears any one who does hear must know not enough refuse to to see and that honest industry will always find make him lts It is contradicted every shudder The rudest laborer in our City Every man and woman who is is in circumstances than many of employment dishonest It is not the dishonest who are too to No to brand them as dishonest is the canting hypocrisy of the well-fed and What shall be Where shall we find a remedy for these monster Who will furnish the work and pay for of college-bred men who daily pace our streets in anxious desperate beg and who starve rather than do it quest of
