They are the foundation of nearly all the improvements and comforts of life, and fur- ther wemay say of the glory and of the world. By them the farmer ploughs the land and by them the mariner ploughs the ocean, the monarch is adorned with ms crown, and tbe peasant is dad in comfortable gar- ments; by them the triumphal arch js raised to the hero, and the temple ascends to the Dei ty br them the table is spread, tbe bed is decked, and the parlor is furnished. To them the poet owes the perpetuation of his fame. Homer rings in all ages. Through them we are instructed by the wisdom of Plato and charmed by the eloquence of Throng them we admire the justice of Ansti- des and the heroism of Leonidas. And mnch of this is owing to the single arts of printing and the manufacture of pa- per. By tbe former, learning has been rescued rrom the gloom of the dark ages: but, without tbe latter, tbe benefis of printing would be cw- enmscribed to very narrow bounds. It is by of tbe press, chiefly, that so much of J Christendom owes its escape from the thraldom of superstition. But in speaking of the dignity of the me- chanic arts, we would not confine them to the mere hand that executes, without thinking of the bead that plans, for, without the latter, but little more credit would be due to the person who exercises these arts, than to an automaton.

Whether our poet conceived this to be the fact, or used his observation to excite interest, I know not: but this I do know, such supposition has no founda- tion in truth. We might as well say the dog sheds tears from his tongue, because perspira- tion issues from that organ. I mistake or misrepresentation of Shaksoeare arose from most of the deer kind having a kind of slit under each eye, from which at tunes a kind of liquid flows which might easily be con- ceived to be tears. I have dissected a deer s head and found those cavities run np jaw-bone. Whether, as the deer breathes through the mouth, these vents give greater cility to respiration or the smell, is a matter of doubt.
