The weekly Sabbath a although we have admitted for the Sake of the argument that the labor of the Community if suspended one Day in seven is for that reason one seventh part less productive we Are far from thinking that such is in fact the Case. We believe on the contrary that this is one of the instances in which two and two do not make four. Whether we consider labor As intended to produce the immediate result wealth or the More Remote one Well Bertig physical and moral we have no hesitation in saying that we believe it becom s More instead of less productive by an occasional suspension. We All know that our faculties cannot be kept forever on the stretch. A without the nightly intervention of that blessed thing sleep As Coleridge Calls it to sus Pend our toils and labors soothe our cares and recruit our strength we should All in a very Short time go mad and die. But the preservation of a sound healthy and cheerful condition of our nature requires in addition to this an occasional suspension of our labour for longer periods and it was doubtless in the kind View of accommodating his commands to the Constitution which he had Given us that the creator prescribed the Observance of a weekly Day of rest. The Man who constantly pursues his worldly objects without allowing himself a moment s Leisure gradually acquire by a sort of moral gravitation an accelerated and feverish intensity of action which if not checked in one Way or another ends in extravagance bankruptcy and ruin. By wholly diverting his thoughts one Day in seven from business and turning them upon the High and glorious sub of it of his intellectual and moral to god his fellow men and the universe he cools the fever of his mind and when he takes up his affairs again on m in Day morning he is surprised to find with How Muc h clearer a Liidi uni it he Vii his agent or consignee. A a a a a a a i a a Iti Tufe. The intellectual Anco moral principles the god within the mind that loftier and nobler portion of our being by which the Affinity with tiie Sublime spirit that created and informs the universe this too has its claims and they Are of a More urgent and momentous character than those of the other. But How can we do them Justice if our thoughts Are forever absorbed without the interruption of a Day an hour a moment in the routine of business our intellectual and moral nature is refined and exalted by study solitary musing or instructive conversation i on elevated subjects by the interchange of kind and charitable feelings by the contemplation of he goodness of the creator As shown Forth in the majesty Harmony and Beauty of his works. If we mean to Rise in the scale of being above the tools we work with or the brute Ani Mals that we employ we must allow ourselves time for these ennobling and delightful pursuits. The merchant must not Nail himself forever to his counter like a bad shilling and the lawyer should remember that there is one supreme court in which his precedents will lose their authority and his special pleas their importance and there is one cause and that his own which he must finally argue upon its merits. Let it be enough thai the business of the world is pursued with a remitted activity and perseverance from monday morning to saturday night. When sunday comes let the weary be at rest let the labourer of every kind cease from his toil and go up to the House of god not to ruminate upon the affairs of the week or to Lay new plans for the com ing one but to yield up his whole soul to the current of lofty contemplations which the scene and the service Are suited to inspired to feel the ravishing influence of sacred�6ong�?to indulge the devout aspirations that lift the Humble spirit in holy trances to the Footstool of the almighty. Nor let him think it too hard if in the mean Lime his letters remain unread in the Post office. They will not grow Fhle before to Morrow. His com inuit Ion with a Lod is of much More con Seq once 4han his correspondence Whai considers the plans and purposes Tif which he took leave on saturday. He now perceives errors the before escaped his attention reject imprudent projects that before presented hem selves in tempting colors to his heated fancy and if i gains at the end of the week be one seventh less they will probably at the end of the year be seventy fold More. Instead of being a miserable bankrupt he will be a thriving Happy healthy Man. We have no hesitation in say Fig that the fault we have Here indicated of a too or ver if Mere Mau of business May think of it this is after All a matter of High importance. Unless the deepest thinkers have erred in heir con delusions from the most mature experience and reflection unless the strongest fee Iii a within us Are All delusion unless the word of revelation be a lies it is certain that our mysterious nature is Only one of the Transi Tor forms of a permanent existence that our lot hereafter will he deter mined forever by the use that we make of our faculties Here. As the gent Pursuit of worldly gain is a com j falleth so it must lie if we to Mon trait in the character of our Cotin a Unitarily a Grade our Mitis in this try men and that a More exclusive de world to the level of the brutes if Votion of the s Abbath to repose and Quot Quot a sible to tar we can St it in the religious contemplation would he a most wholesome corrective of the evil. We Strain every nerve to the utmost ennui of every cent of cup ital that we own or can borrow and not Content with obtaining an honorable Sussis tence for ourselves inh our families by the regular practice tour Are per Tiv race of eternity with so much advantage As others who have done their Kest to Streng Hen exalt and purify it the intellectual and moral principle that survives the body. These Are Ai once glorious and fearful they Are truths which the Greate rtt suites and lawgiver of every age try a closes to non and from numb to callings grasp with an agonize Effort at any project that holds out he Franklin have kept in View in their least Prospect of extraordinary gain. Political creations. No of ire of an what follow i a few persons am iss c e to or modern times Ever obtained immense fortunes the posse Ion of real stability of which the govern which has no very favourable Eft it a quote to in one Way or Ano on their own characters or those of her on the steadfast and immovable their children. The rest at the first i Rock of religion. Under our free and Little convulsion in the world of Busi Happy forms of political Constitution Ness Are swept like dead leaves be a the Only Way in which this Sattary fore a november blast into the Gulf principle can produce its beneficial of of bankruptcy. It would be vain tojf�ct9, is by its influence on Public of deny that the general habits of our a Pinion and however much we May Tive men of every class correspond in Long course of years. The apparent diameter of the Sun will be 311 minutes of a degree that of the Moon 31 of course the eclipse will be annular that is in All places where the Sun i i be centrally eclipsed at the moment of the greatest obscuration it will exhibit the appearance of a Beautiful Luminous ring around the Moon eclipses of this kind Are of less frequent occurrence than those which Are total. The Centre of the eclipse will first touch the Earth s disk in the great Pacific Ocean on the morning of february 12th, in lat. 31 Deg. 55 minutes n.

In crossing the Earth s disk and a bout one hour from its entrant ice to a he Ime fits leaving the United of itty. A line drawn through the above Points on the map of North America will pass through All those places where he eclipse is Central. Two other lines on each Side of the first Ai the distance of 50 a tiles will include All places in the United states where it will be Simular. Lis Penumbra will precede and follow the Centro at the mean interval of one hour and thirty misites making on the Central track fhe beginning and end of the eclipse. Lines drawn on the map of the United slaves parallel to the Central Iraq k at intervals fun the South Side of 200, 185 and 174 tiles and on the no Quot Rah i intervals of 225. 250, and 300 mils will exhibit be Irethe r s Active Points where the Sun will he 11, 10.

This eclipse will be visible Over every part of the North american continent and the West indies and will be seen As Fai South As the City of Quito in South America. The main with this description and it in ill our opinion equally certain that a real and Bona Jide suspension of worldly cares one Day in seven would greatly improve were it Only by its negative and sedative effects the state of mind which leads to these extravagant efforts and their disastrous results. It is in Short Clear to us Quot that the labor of the Community by being suspended one Day in seven becomes not less but on the contrary a great Deal More productive of Mere wealth than it otherwise would be. But this View of the subject however important is by no Means the most so of those which May be taken 4 of it. The object of All this toil an trouble these convulsive trainings and desperate Enterprise so is after All the acquisition of the Means of subsistence a meat clothes and fire nothing More. But this Thoi a a be i Giti mate object of Pursuit in life is far from being the Only Jone. It belong entirely to our lower and animal a regret to differ from the very respect Able come Tittle whose report we have been examining and the writers who concur with them we have no hesitation in expressing our conviction that the people of the United states have nothing belter in regard to their poli tical concerns to Hope or wish than that All their agents should he in Tii ended in the of by religious belief. This would not bring about without apparently attaching any very distinct meaning to the terms a Union of Church and stale but it would procure us the Blessing of Providence a Wise Liberal efficient and above All honest administration of the government in ail its branches a condition of general and constantly progressive Prosperity and to sum up All in one word peace. Shop just across the Way from where he had been. The owner All of a sudden discovered an extensive Light in his shop As though the whole building was in one general flame. He ran with the greatest Precipitin by and on flinging open the door discovered a Man standing in the midst of a widely extended Silver coloured Blaze bearing As he described it exactly the appearance of the Wick of a burning Candle in the midst of its own flame. He seized him by the shoulder and jerked him to the door upon which the flame was Iii stantly extinguished. There was no fire in the shop neither was there any possibility of fire having been communicated to him from any external source. It was purely a Case of spontaneous ignition. A general sloughing came on and his flesh was consumed or removed in the dressing in the Bones and a few of the larger blood vessels standing. The blood nevertheless rallied round the heart and maintained the vital spark until the Whir tenth Day when he died Noi Only the most noisome ill featured and dreadful picture that was Ever presented to human View but his shrieks his cries and lamentations were or Tough to rend a heart of Ada Mani. He complained of no pain of body his was gone. He said he was Suff ring the torments of hell that he was just upon its thresh old and should soon enter its dismal Ca Verns and in this Frame of he gave up the ghost. Of the death of a i Tunkard Well May it be said it it it gear All description. I have seen other drunkards die but never in a manner so awful acid affecting.

Indeed scarcely allow ours Lve a to doubt that the re will be a demand for All fhe bag sing of this kind that our manufacturers can Supply. The cuff on Cotton bagging we Are pleased to learn is coming More and More into use and when experience has sufficiently tested its Excel Nee it will probably in a great Mea sure supersede the other bag itself manufactured from Cotton is never lost in various ways it May he and is work a up and More Savin Gly so we believe to Cotton Pur chasers than either hemp or Tow wrappers can be.

It is Well authenticated says the doctor that Many habitual Dir bikers of ardent spirits Are brought to their end by what is called spontaneous combustion by spontaneous combustion i mean when a person takes fire Ashy an electric Shock and Burns up without any external application. Trotter mentions several such Islan Ces. One a Quot happened under my own observation. It was the cae of a Young Man about 25 years old. He had been a habitual Drinker for Many years. 1 saw him about nine o clock in the evening on which it happened. He was then As usual not drunk but full of liquor. About eleven on the same evening i was called to see him. I found him literally roasted from the on cords Furtini or. Schley ?.

We Are glad to find our if Izeris turnip g their attention m Ore and Lii Ore to Domestic manufactures while they Persever ogly pursue this course they May leave their politicians to declaim against Domestic Industry and in sup port of nullifying diet citrines according to their own fancies they will find their advantage so connected with their Industry that Fine spun the ories will be relinquished for practical truths and much Leso encouragement will be Given to the manufacture of speeches than to the fabrication of articles More essentially and directly lending to individual Prosperity and National Independence. Warded Eiklor and of Public printing As glanced constant in it Ezore our dazzled sight end us to Huzzah to a the greatest and Best of men As Secretary Branch Calls him and we became a Jackson Man a dyed in the Wool our majority thought there could be no danger in being a decided Jackson Man but alas mutation is stamped on All sub Lunary things. Compare the parly at the time we joined it with what it is now and still mis like a but of How different then it was the very Emblem of invincible strength now it is like the Albany begin chi swaying about with every breath and ready to Fumble at the next kick. We the Star were then All Hope now All despair the very elements have conspired against us the working men it is said Are for clays the Tariff nil a Are foe Clay the internal improvement men Are for clays the old Adams party very nearly equal in number to the Jackson party Are for clays fhe anti masons Are for clays the friends of National Faith and inviolate treaties and Quot the irid ians Are for Cla it a the enemies of proscription and punishment for Freedom in voting Are for Clay it the friends of the Union and All opposed to Southern disunion Are Lor club a the friends of National Economy Are for clan and for aught we see by a.

Men Are prone to recount the differ ent symptoms and stages of the disease even when there is no Hope left for the patient. So let us lot k for a Lew minutes at the cause of the Early death of Jacksonia ism. One of the Indica Lions of health Whilt h at first denoted Long life was the general s coming out for the Tariff. This he certainly Ijes done though rather in a Vara Buren Way and not it is True wit i the bluntness and sincerity of Harry Clay. But Here vre were Ratiu r in a other for the Wise men who control tiie Post ice Quot of King s county having drawn their notions of political econ Niy from those and pure foun tins the Kex York courier and enquirer and evening Post Hari All Previ Nunly professed to be anti Tariff.

However our leaders ruminated and smoked and at last we agreed to lot k Wise upon the subject and when speak Rig of it to say Liat Quot poit fhe whole h judicious Tariff was desirable and that the hero of two wars views it just in this Light All things went very Well but now ror>ife8 the Story of our hero s Blunder not like Angels visits few and far Between bul he grape shot from a thirty two Pound Battery or like Wise amp witty sayings from brother Birche a paper.

It is a fact Well known to All our readers that we fell into the Jackson ranks As soon As we decently could after the defeat of the Quot corrupt coalition Quot and that we have Laboured hard in the cause of Jackson and Reform although we came in at the eleventh hour. True we had some most excruciating twinges of conscience in abandoning the honest men and Princi pies with which we had been before associated but then such glorious i Tii ods of government patronage of re jacks has Rev added them wherever Bey could be found from brother Birch Down to Duff Green and major Noah.
