Beside him walked closely and silently the faithful twelve and on before him went a multitude shouting Lio Salinas and with eager hands strewing their garments thickly in the Way. The unbroken foal beneath him gently stepped tame As patient dam and As the song of Quot Welcome to the son of David Quot burst Forth from a Thoi Iland children and the leaves of the waving branches touched Silken ears it turned wild Eye for a moment Back and then subdued by an invisible hand meekly trod Onward with his slender feet. The Dew s last sparkle from the grass gone As he Rode up mount Olive. The Woods threw their Cool shadows directly to the West and the Light foal with Quick and toiling step. And head Bent Low kept up the uns lacked Way till soft mane was lifted by the wind sent o or the mount from Jordan. As he reached the Summit s Breezy pitch the Savior raised his Calm Blue Eye there stood Jerusalem eagerly he Bent Forward and beneath his Mande s passive folds a bolder line than the wont lightness of his perfect limbs betrayed the swelling fullness of his heart there stood Jerusalem How fair she looked. Tjie Silver Sun on All her palaces and her fair daughters mid the Golden Spires tending their Terrace Flowers amp Kedron s Stream icing the Meadows with Silver band work with a clean shirt and decent Vest. Quot very Good perhaps he May in some sorts of business. Let every Man be As neat As Bis work will allow but a Collier will have a Black face and lie is a poor Carpenter who makes no chips. But i am thinking of More than Mere dress. Too Many of our working men Are ashamed of that which is their Honor namely their Trade. When they appear in Broadway they Wear gloves and ape the coxcomb who never do any father father said Sammy i am a fraid you would have mechanics reduced to an inferior caste who must never Rise but forever look up to the Richer folks As the lords of creation. Quot there you mistake me greatly Sammy. I am an old Mechanic Sammy. I am an old mechanics Many along j ear have i wrought at a laborious employment a i am for giving every Man a Chance to Rise i Honor an industrious working Man. I think nothing More honorable than honest Labory and became i think so i Don t like to see a Man ashamed of it. Let me Tell you a Story. About a year ago i was return Nir in the stage name of god sir Why should any one study to prevent the Good sense and kindly feelings of this moral and Noble people to infuse into their minds a sullen envy towards one another instead of that generous emulation which every thing in their situation is fitted to inspire to breathe into them the spirit of Cain muttering deep curses and meditating desperate revenge against his brother because the smoke of his sacrifice ascended to Heavey before his own and do not they who treat our industrious classes As if they they were in the same debased and wretched condition As the poor of Europe insult them by such an odious comparison Why sir do you not know what poverty is a we have no poor in this country in the same sense which that word is used abroad. Every labourer even the most Humble in the United slates soon becomes a capitalist and even if he chooses a proprietor of land for the West with All boundless Fertility is open to him. How can any one dare to compare the mechanics of this land whose inferiority in any substantial coach from Philadelphia where i been to see i particularly in intelligence in virtue in wealth your undo Isaac. Jnell to me sat a Young Man j to the other classes of our country i have yet to who did not recognize me but whom i at once knew to be a Shoemaker in second Street. He took his seat with an air and looked the thing was Fine kid gloves spectacles watch in a Little pocket almost under his Arm Undt clothes with a perpendicular aperture White a Ole straps Gold headed switch i perceived that his plan was to sink tie shop poor fellow i wished to teach him a lesson because i known his father so i gave him line for awhile and sat mum while he talked largely of what the philadelphian consider the properly of each and every citizens fair mount a a Laurel of a Llu Gir Artl colleges the new Gas lights the big ship. Not a word about Trade but much of councils election politics or. Ingersoll and the theatre. As the company was very complaisant he grew More easy and at length usurped most of the Conversa tion. At a Good pause i ventured to put in my oar and asked can you Tell me sir How Span ish hides have been Selling he looked at me hard and said not exactly. Sir and ha.= to talk of something else. Pray said i do you know whether this business of importing Paris shoes turned out Well for the s in Walnut Street a he coloured a Little pulled up the angles of his Collar Antl said not Beins in livid breathing Mist Mantle on the sky Wim the morn s . There she stood Jerusalem the City of his love. Chosen from All the Earth Jerusalem that knew him not and rejected him Jerusalem for whom he came to die the shouts redoubled from a thousand lips at the fair sight the children leaped and Sang louder Hosanna the Clear air was filled with odor from the trampled Olive leaves but Quot Jesus wept Quot the loved disciple saw his master s tear and closer to his Side he came with yearning looks and on his neck the Savior leaned a Ith heavenly tenderness and mourned Quot How Oft Jerusalem would i have gathered you Saga thereto a Hen her Brood beneath her Wing but be would he thought not of the death that he should die he thought not of the thorns he knew must Pierce his lore head of the Buffet on his Cheeky the Scourge the mocking image the foul scorn go hse Niane stood out beneath his Eye Clear in the morning Sun and there he knew while they who could not watch with him one hour were sleeping he she uld sweat great drops of blood. Fraying the cup might pass and Golgotha stood Bare and desert by the City Wall and in midst in his prophetic Eye Rose the rough Cross and keen agonies were numbered ally the nails were in his feet the insulting sponge was pressing on his lips the blood and water gushed from his Side the dizzy faintness swimming of in his brain and while his own disciples fled in fear a world s Lealh agonies All mixed in his a a he forgot All this. He Only saw Jerusalem the chosen the loved the last to Only Felt that former Sake his life. Was vainly Given and in his pitying love. The sufferings that would clothe the heavens in Black were quite forgotten. Was there Ever love in Earth or heaven equal to this from the Newark Sentinel. The Jie chanic Aliuk his uus inf is. Quot i have often heard Quot said Uncle Benjamin Quot that Pussin gloves catches no and this been very much in my mind lately when i have observed How great is the ambition of our Young Sparks to be thought gentlemen. Surely father said Sammy you have no objection to a Man s dressing himself decently. Quot not at All Sammy a Man May be As decent tidy and even elegant As you please but All in proper place. 1 often hear people asking Why Sunderland which is one of our oldest villages thrives so Lite and i always answer the master workmen Are never in their shirt you May see them at to Weir shop doors in sunday trim before they have got their third then father you would have a Man always in his apron Quot not at All sat my i say again. When i was a lad we male ourselves smart every evening on saturday nights we took a Little foretaste of sunday and when sunday came every Man was rigged out in his Best and a very pretty sight it was i As sure be to see an old time Beau a Lis hair in powder prettily clubbed plate of Stock buckle ditto for Knees and shoes Small clothes and White stockings and Posey in the bosom. But then we earned it fairly by hard knocks. In working hours there was no play and no Man was ashamed of labor. But now a Days there is a great rage for being Over genteel i often spy a Rich Waistcoat and Gold Chain under a Butcher s frock and see Young me Chanico twiddling their Saltans in the Street when they ought to have their Coats but you will allow that a Man May do a Good stroke of that line. Sir you must ext use me for not knowing he was uneasy but not quite convinced that he was found out and went on talking quite largely about the shipping business. I thought i could come a Little nearer Home by another inquiry so i said gaily allow me to ask you whether Good old or. Stack Sticks to the last i remember the Duy when he could finish his pair of boots with any Man in Jersey a this was Wormwood for he knew in his heart that or. Smack was his own father yet As he was not even yet quite sure that i was apprised of the connexion he replied with some Confidence though with a red face or snack a yes the old Man he not been in Active business for several years i should perhaps have been Content with going thus far not Young or. Smack launched out in a Strain More affected than Ever of very absurd discourse about playhouse matters. As it was inasmuch As i never was ashamed of being a Mechanic myself i knew no reason Why he should be so at the earliest rest in the conversation i said or. Smack i am pleased to see that you keep up the old business a very pretty stand that of yours in second Street and if you please customers As Well As your Good old father did i can engage for your Success this speech settled my Man. He Turnell several colors the passengers exchanged looks and smiled and at the next watering place or. Smack went outside and made the rest of the journey on the Box Quot i can t help thinking said Sammy that this was a Little ill aired in you father. The thing is this. We live in a land of Liberty and Equality. We Are looked Down upon As labourers and twisted As mechanics snobs and so on. It is very natural therefore that a Man should try to escape these sneers and put the Best foot Foremost. Quot Bui hold Sammy i agree it is natural and right to escape from contempt but take the right Way to effect it. What is Ihn right Way certainly not by being above one s business or trying to sink the shop for this is saying that you Are yourself ashamed of your calling whereas you ought to be proud of it. Why conceal a thing unless you think it a disgrace. Can you expect other men to respect that which you despise yourself there is no surer Way of bringing honest Inglus try into contempt than by using Low shifts to a void the appearance of labor. If you wish the Public to respect your vocation show that you respect it such was the advice of this Veteran Mechanic to his son and i verily believe there is sound Wisdom a in it. It is very common to final the very sati persons complaining that they Are looked Down upon who o a courage the contempt by seeming ashamed of that which is their Honor. After some years of careful observation i have never seen a Mechanic Ai Ove his business Whf it did not meet with Morli filiation where he so tight respect and i have never seen a working Man however Humble his sphere who lost any consideration in society by frankly appearing in his real character and laying own hand to the whenever it became needful. The working men of America constitute a powerful and increasing class and should do nothing to betray a doubt As to their own respectability Charles Quill. Learn with that race of outcasts of which terrible a picture is presented by recent the poor of Europe a race among the inconsiderable portion of whom famine and pestilence May be said to dwell constantly Many of whom Are without morals without education without a country without a god and May be said to know society Only by the terrors of penal code and to live in perpetual War with it. Poor Bondmen mocked with the name of Liberty that they May be sometimes tempted to break their chains in order that after a few Days of starvation in idleness or dissipation they May be driven Back to their prison House to take them up again heavier and might re galling than before severed As it been touchingly expressed from nature from the common air and Light of the Sun know ing Only by hear say that the Fields Are Green that the Birds sing and that there is a perfume in and is it with a race whom the perverse institutions of Europe have thus degraded beneath the condition of humanity that the advocates the patrons the protectors of working men presume to compare them sir it is to treat them with a scorn at which their spirits would revolt and does revolt just before i left Charleston there was a meeting called for some purpose which was regard etl by the people of that City As urd Avor ble to Public order there was something i suppose in the proceedings which looked to the invidious distinct lion of which i have been speaking for it led i have heard to an expression of sentiment from one of Bur Mechanic pm which struck me As Noble beyond Praise. He said he wondered what could be meant by addressing to the classes particularly All inflammatory appeals against the institutions of this country As if they were not a part of Community As much interested in order and peace As any other As if they no ties of sympathy or connection with their fellow citizens above All As if they not intelligence and knowledge enough to take care of their own interests but were reduced to a state of perpetual Pupillage and infancy and needed the officious Protection of self constituted guardians sir that was a sentiment worthy of a Freeman and which May be recorded with Honor among the sayings of heroes. During the revolutionary War none contributed their Means More largely or More freely. And who let me ask occupied a prouder position during the late War when the credit of the government was at lowest ebb who furnished the Means to carry on the War the merchants. When the government wanted Money and could not command it on own responsibility who stepped in to assistance and provided credit on which it could be raised the merchants. Yes sir when your troops were fam Ishing for want of supplies and disheartened for want of pay when you could not raise a Dollar on your own credit it was the merchants through these much Traduce and vilified Banks that took your depreciated paper which no currency with the people and gave their own in exch an a quote in which the country Confidence sir i am tired of these incessant efforts to excite one portion of the Community against the other. There is no class to whose patriotism Yon May not Appeal when the country requires their services. The agricultural from the very nature of their employment will always stand pre eminent. But it is to the merchants More than any other class that you Are to look for the ready Means to Aid you in time of War. Sir they have always responded to your Call. They were never found wanting in the most perilous periods of your history. Whatever of glory or of Honor or of in Sperly this nation enjoys it is indebted in no Small degree to the patriotism of the merchants. J hey have contributed their full share towards establish Reg your National character at Home Anil abroad. They will continue to sustain it until their broken and subdued spirits shall think it no longer Worth ii ail he two follies is afloat. Among tie ii onerous hails of Lale and we have a Laii is Orr none gives us More gratification than the information contained in the following letter from our Friend major Down ing. The release of the Quot two follies Quot front her Long and perilous position is in our opinion a Mere prelude to the escape of hundreds from the Rutland iii in which Thoy have been pm tinged a the moral is a Plain one we Hope it will not be lost. We commend the proposition touch King rejoicing to the committee of 76. It is Well to Bear in mint that we Are Calliel on not to imitate bad a Amples but to set Good ones. We believe this is the major s notion and the major is knowing in All these matters. Well now about the election. What in Nallur hits got into folks what become of Quot a the party Quot do Tell now i want to know i have Hearn Tell of Quot Knockin folks into the Middle of next week Quot a but if the news i got is ony half True you wont find some folks for a Good Many weeks to come Quot a pc i a git in up stares Quot a As an Avenue from the far East to the Quot great Falheier of it seems As if nothing could be Don i of so much importance to the Quot West Quot As the construction of Safe and commodious harbours on our Western lakes. Of Lake Michigan Wigt shall be permitted to speak freely. We have Over three Hundred Miles of Lake navigation and not a acc fun Oil it la Hhd a Uit it a it \ \ of they Sav Down in Georgia a i never Hearn Afore one Safe or commodious Harbor on in Lake. Ii o /. A is True that Liberal appropriations have been Why it seems to me them play whigs have Hoed out Tother party completely and not left enuf for seed i hear Tell you Are going to have a Jollif cation on this matter on the 22d inst i must git the two follies up to town by that time if it is possible and take a hand in it but i Hope it will be one of that kind that will do More Good than evil. Now i la Tell you what my notion is about it and what i for one mean to do i mean to make a Kaka lation of what it would Cost to illuminate the biggest House if i one in the City then i Touhl instead of spent Lin the Money in this Way list Lay it by till the Winter comes and either take it myself or give it to a Ward committee to buy Wood or Coal for such families As by misfortune Are suffering and destitute i would make no distinction of party but wherever there were found suffering women and children there i would go in and make an ill Minalio in their made for t1ie construction of the Harbor at Chicago. Yet such is the difficulty of construction that thousands and if we Are credibly informed hundreds of thousands nday still be expended be for it will afford that Protection to the shipping att Commerce of the Lake so desirable during the unsettled seasons of the year. We would not be understood a complaining of the expenses made at Chicago but on the contrary have been decidedly favourably to All appr<�prvation8 that have been made Anil Are still desirous that others May he made for the completion of that we do say however that there Are places on Lake Michigan that would have afforded ample Security to our shipping in the severest storms the same or two thirds of the amount been expended in improving them that there been expended upon the Chicago Harbor a in % Strot Northern or Westerly Gale it is almost or fire places this is the kind of illumine to make port at Chicago what then should to lion i Hope every Good whig will go for. And take done to protect the Commerce of the Lake secure my word for it it will bring blessings on the cause Ami the party. This course will be rank Pristin to the Scadin dim Gogue of the Loco Foco party they Are the chaps that Tell the ignorant but honest poor that the whigs Are their very worst enemies and some believe it when it is Well known and none know it belter than these Loco Foco leaders especially the Buffalo tribe that it is a rank lie. There Are no people in the wide would More charitable than the american people. I j know it and who dares deny it let any Man go Abr Datl and then come Home and what he says about it. Well then if this is so Grant As to the citizen his property and Rescue from the watery element hundreds of victims every year we say emphatically let Liberal appropriations be made by Contr cars for the speedy construction of one secure and commodious Harbour on Laka Michigan we care not if it be at Michigan City Chicago Milwaukee or St. Jose Jihu if we Only out int what we have so Long asked for and what we so much need one secure Harbor.

Two out of five of that immortal committee were mechanics and such men in the the merchant the following extract from a speech of senator Tallmadge contains a merited tribute to the merchants of our country. From or Tallmadge s speech in the us Senate sept. 22, sir i am aware of the prejudices which honestly exist i h a portion of the Community against any thing like Quot associated 1 am aware How easily those prejudices May be wrought on by Dona rogues and designing . But those who Are sent Here to legislate for the great interests of the country should be extremely careful How they minister to such prejudices. Whilst it is Adini Tlell that the Batik Itig system evils Superior benefits nevertheless recommend it to the candid consideration of every statesman and Patriot. It should be his object to Correct the evils and retain the benefits. Quot preserve and regulate but do not destroy Quot Stoulil be his motto. It existed and been recognised from the earliest Fouin lation of tie government Down to the present time. It been identified with the interests of the institutions in some shape or other have been employed by the government during that whole period. It is through their a Juicy and instrumentality that these much abused Ami despised merchants have been enabled to pay into our coffers the vast amount of Revenue which sur Ilain de you in peace and in War. , very merchants who have been represented As not to be relied on in times of peril whose Patriot in is in their Ledger and whose Field of glory their Yunling Roo no men who Are the Mist Forward in their Pursuit of gain when All is pact and quiet but who sink from responsibility when danger . Sir i have for a Long time looked with horror upon the ruthless warfare that been carried on against the Iner Carliie . I have set iii with alarm the attempts which have been made to set up other of the Community against them. I have heard them branded As swindlers for collecting their honest blues at Home and As traitors for paying their honest due.? abroad. Sir the interests of All classes in country Are reciprocal neither the Farmer the Matt facture the Mechanic nor the merchant can get on Adlanta but it is to the merchant Mote especially that the government must look for the immediate Means of support. It is the merchant that stands Between Tho government and the consumer. It is the merchant that shoulders the respond Ibi Lily and pays into the to Masury the enormous ainu no of Revenue which keeps the whole machinery of government in motion. It is the merchant that maintains the Rockaway l. I. . In 1837 to the editors of the n v. Daily express. Gentlemen a i thai it a you for sendin me the papers regularly a but i Saint time to write to you for some time i believe my Las letter Tell d you about the condition of Uncle Sam and his buttons but i am not Sartin. I have now the satisfaction to Tell you a and you May Tell it to All creation a that the a a two follies is afloat and this is nigh upon the Way it come about. Some time ago i got a letter from Uncle Jishua tellin me to keep a Sharp look out on the tides along about the beginning of o o november a that they a play High one Down there in Maine and shortly before that there was a considerable Rise in Rhode Island and it would Sar Tinly be the same All along Shore and according to his Kaka lation there would be a real rouser along by York state somewhere Froin the first to the Middle of this month and that if i Ever expected to git the Quot two follies Quot off this was the Lime to keep a Sharp look out for Congress done nothing to help at the last session and might not at the next. And sure enuf on the 6th, jest at Sunrise it began to Rise and every following tide kept going a Beetle beyond the last one and by Sun Down of the 8th a Quot the glorious 8th november it the two follies begun to lift out of the Sand Antl Roll and to rights up she come on an even keel and swung off to her Anker which been fun out into deep water. The nex Mornin the folks begun to gather a Long Shore and every Livin Critter who could git off All come on boart a and such a time As we there for a spell i Kaka late Saint been seen for Many a Day on Board a vessel sound As Ever in her Hull but wantin spars sails and Riggin. My old Friend Zekel Bigelow was among the visitors and nothing would do but he must deliver an address to the folks and he is you know a Complete hand at that and so up he got on the Windlass and did pore it out there for about half an hour awful. He stood like a Tea pot one Arm a Kimbo and Tother spouting and such a Stream there was no Gitty by it. He thanked every body Aud every thing that Hall any hand in Gittin the two Pollice off Shore he said the same causes would lift More folks out of the mud than we and any notion on for that the two follies was not the Only object that Hall been run on Shore by the wicket lne a and the ignorance and selfishness of some folks and when he co be to speak to some folks and Tell and Why All this trouble and Btian b ought on the country entirely Wilfulness he jest took up his swill tub and emptied the Huil scrape on t right Over pm i never in my born Days Hearn the like. Arter this was Over to All gave thru. Times three Good Hearty cheers and Tho two ?, she rolled from Side to Side like a Good nature to Laugher first one scupper in and then Tother just As though she Takimi part in the fun and which she a Righi to do. The two it follies As i suite Afore is sound in her Hull and All her ground tackle is As Rood As Ever but she wants Reid latin Atid As yet i am a Letio Puzo Clcil to know which port to carry her to for an outfit. Some think she ought to be rigged on a new plan uni that a convention of riggers is to meet in new a Fork on the 27i i of this month to fix Tipon asian for Riggin vessels generally. This being the Case 1 ton t know but it is to take the i to follies to new York Anil let them All take a look at her and then decide. I must say i Saint got much Confidence in any new Rig Quot especially if it any thing like m about it All i know about who it gives liberally of the fruits of his indu.s-1 upon the vast Waters of lakes Huron try the who h is Somolain or the Man who Gan without a Beacon Light to warn of danger or nothing and yet we hear of some of these one Safe Retreat from the sudden and Deso lating Dimig Ogues who Are too Idle to work for an Hon ravages of the storms that 50 frequently visit est Livin Talkin round among the ignorant and j those lakes. A the wicked and tellin pm to join in the cry of we Hope that something May to done Down with the Rich and trying in fact to make it j next Mee ing of Congress to protect our Lake a Pear a sin in any Man to have More with his Commerce. Surely our representatives cannot Industry and virtue than they have with their know of the immense amount of property that la i Slont like to Trust my idleness and wickedness self in writing More on this matter As my Dander always begins to lift when i think on t. But about this Jollif cation talked on i Don t see that better could be done than the plan i propose and i Hope something As nigh like it As possible will be adopted a however i dont know but we must have some thin by Vay of Markin election and instead of an illumination let a big gun Tell the Story from every Hill top 76 times slam bang from the sea Shore to the lakes and Back agin and i Callon my Friend Prentiss of the Louisville journal away Over in old Kentucky to charter that big Thunder Cloud he promised a spell destroyed and the great number of human beings. That Are sacrificed upon these Waters every year if they did we should no longer be asking in vain for what we almost said we have a right to demand one secure Harbor. Spanish tribute to the Virtues of the Quaker Tinioso de Ambos kudos Quot of saturday in an article entitle Quot poverty is not a natural evili."ha8 the following exc Llu it remarks upon the charac ter traits of the quakers which Are As striking for their originality As truth Quot it never been proved until of Lale that poverty is not a natural or., i t 1 necessary evil a remarkable example of is a ago to let off a real rouser and i Hope every state will take own time in join in with this quakers or the Community of Friend Victory till it comes round through old Virginne go blushed in England and America with some and it the last Roar of the guns be heard on a cities of very litle importance in dress and the Day when Congress together jest to Tell numerous body of individuals act a upon uniform principle of stifling the Passioni. They subdue the ignoble impulse of oui nature amp the folks there that the wind shifted and High time to tack ship. And As regards returning thanks for blessings received the governor already appointed a Day for a general thanksgiving All Over the state and if any Man will read that pro Calamai Ion Quot nov lie will see that the Govert or must Hall ? notion that in addition to Good crops and Good health Good sound constitutional principles would be established and now if All these aint Worth being thankful for then Are we most ungrateful. As a Day then is appointed by the governor let us All As our Good old fathers and grandfathers did before us go to Church and have a Good Sermon and Jine in the services of Praise and thanksgiving and then come Home and git the family together and invite As Many As there is room for and who Saint got no Fani ily and if there be any Punk in creation i Hope they wont be neglected Antl i Hope no Man of the Rale grit will on that Day fail to top of a thanksgivi in dinner with a genuine Punkin pie and do All ill this lies the basis of Noral truth. The Quaker practice habitually what All other sects Admire Only As consequence of this Dominion Over their thoughts and action is that Ai. Though there Are i Navy thousands of quakers in England and the United Stales of America in neither country do we Ever see a mendicant or intoxicated Quaker in the streets and Seldom or never do we find Ariy of them t item before the Crim Nal courts. Yet As All classes the quakers Are engaged in the common affairs of life As Merchante mechanics artists amp a. And indeed they Are employed in every kind of Trade Anil occupation. They arc subjected so the same Tiem Pattii fris a.n4 the same moral perversity As All others aril Yei through the exercise of a singular kind of Pru Dence and Deci Pline they shun them All. Here Hen is a dear demonstration that without the Attl of civil Power and through the influence of moral Force alone there is a class of men in the in int in his Power to see the his poorest neighbor who escape a Overly and Are in one too. I somehow feel sure things go right when Punkin pics Are our pious and patriotic fathers patronized them and no two things in my mind seem to hinge together so snug and have Hung together so Long As patriotism and Tunkins.
