BT C1IAKI KS D1CKKS3. Time wns, wiih most of us, when Christmas Day, enciichng- all our limit- ed world like a for us to miss or ring, left nothing bound together all our home enjoyments, hopes, and af- fections grouped everything nnd every one aiound the Clinstmas fire; and made the little picture shining in our bright young eyes, complete. Time c.uiie, pcihaps, all so soon! when our thoughts overleaped the nairow boundary; when there some one (very dear we thought then, verv beauti- ful, nnd absolutely perfect) wanting to the fulness of our happiness: when we were wanting too (or we thought so, which did jusr as ,M the Cbuslinas hearth by ivhich that some one sat; and when we inlet twined with every vvreath and garland of our life that some one's name. That uns the time fot the ionary Chnslrmissts which have bright vis- long arisen fiom us to shew 1 lititly, after sum- mer rain, in the pa list edges of the iam- That was the time for the beauti- 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 strong- ei! What! Did that Christmas never re- ally come hen we und ihe priceless peail who was our young choice were received, after the happiest oftotallv im- possible marriages, by thetwo united fam- ilies previous'y at daggers-drawn on our account'? When brotheis and sisters in law -vho had always been rather cool to us before our relationship was effecttd, perftctlj dute or> us, and when fathers and mothers overwhelmed us with unlim- ited incomes? Was that Chiistrnas din- net never really eattn, alter which vve arose, and genelously and eloquently livn present in thu honored our 1 ite company) thi-n and there exchanging friendship and forgiveness, and founding an attachment, riot to be surpassed in Greek or Roirun story, which subsisted until death1? Has that same IIVM! lone ceased to care for pearl, and monied that same pnceltss for money, and be- come usuiioua? Above all, do we leally know, now, that we should probably have been mistiablo if we won and worn the pearl, and that we are btlter without That Chi istmas u hen we had recently achieved so much fame when we had bean cat lied in triumph Pomiswheie, 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 lifn here, at the best, so constituted that, pausing as we advance at such a noticeable mile-stotie in the tiack as this great birthday we look back to-the things that never were, as natural- ly and full us gravely as on the things that have buen and aie gone, or have been and still aic? If it be so, and so it seems to be, must we come to the conclu- sion that lile is little bo 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 iend in need, a land of reffuge, and our Jestined partner in many labors and many riumphs. Could we suppose these islands sudden- ly planted in the midst of the Atlantic, or ihe 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 three-quarteis of a century since, that would hardly ex- press so great an approximation and so great a convergence of interests, as what vve now see brought about by more ordi- nary methods. This is the splendid theme of Mr. Walker's address at Man- chester. It has often been the plea of the ambition of statesmen to urge the co-ope- ration of different States, for the purpose of defense or aggression, for the protec- tion of their heasls and their altars, or for A Lesson of "Winter. The grasshopper, who, having sung all Summer, and being short of food nnd bhelter 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 par- 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 fession, for which he will not stand in- debted to any man's opinion "Can't you give me something1 to is now the anxious inquiry of thousands in our City, winter is upou us business is contracting1 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 swelling- the mournful give us something to Unfortunate felovv-beings! 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.

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 ADVERTISEMENTS Inserted at the tollomttg from there Will be no deviation: One square, ttirefe insertions, Ohe square, one year, One-Fourth of a Column, One-Half Column, Full Column, O" Yearlyadvertiserearc allowed the privi- lege of changing their advertisement! six months. iCT Legal advertisements published at Statute Prices. employment. Europe pours her surplus millions in armies upon our shores j and their first cry is for Work! Work! Our own country meets this host by another as needy and as willing; for every one who can't get a satisfactory living else- where, feels sure that fortune awaits him in the City. So here are not less than fifty thousand human beings, many of them expensively educated for professions; some skillful and ready workers if work were to be had but all destitute, unem- ployed, desperate and threatened with starvation eagerly pressing the inquiry, Cart't you find me something lo Abhored be that system of Education which trains our young men fur depen- dence instead of independence! whic ed- ucates them for Teachers, Doctors, Law- yers, Clergymen, bifoie rducaling them for Farmers, or Mechanics, so that they could live by iheir hands if denied opportunity to live by their brains.

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 tarifTand finan- cial disputes Mr. Walker cast a prophetic eye at the great conflict between military absolulism and constitutional government, which every day assumes a more serious asppft, which every day draws nearer to this Island, and which will one Jay di- vivide the whole woild. It is not for nothing that we possess a position given us between the New and-the Old World, a stepping stone from the Old to the New, and outsteps of the new in the oid. It is not for nothing that a gigantic State is fast growing up in the new world, inher- iting from us the principles of constitution- al freedom, somewhat modified in Us pe- culiar circumstances. There are no two states in the whole world and never have been, so bound lo one another, so mutu- ally beneficial, and so able n work to- gether, aa the British Empire and the United States. Al'present it seerns 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 woild. What will be required pf Tillies. of the pnrnp.

A Common Falsehood. We can scarcely take op a especial ly a religious seeing in it an exortation to honesty and industry, and following it up by saying that every individual who is honest and willing to work, can, in this country, obt-iin 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 largeja 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 conl-bina or wood-houses arc a guarentee 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 slander upon ihe 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 day} 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 ihe saying that "there is none righteout, no, not one." It is only on this ground, at the piesent 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 lazy? Most undoubted- ly may have been brought to their desti- tute coudition by means of drunkenness, but the patient and endurig mother and starving children are nevertheless realty forsaken. But there are others. We are almost daily in receipt of let- 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 condi- tion, where ihe husband was willing and anxious to work, but day after day he had begged for the privilege in vain! Yes, instead of bread and work enough, for honest industry goes begging for labor in our streets. Honesty and indus- 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.
