Human society is divided into two great classes the Rich and the poor the of veers of Rauch and the owners of Little or nothing. This division Al ways has existed and always May sex for it is founded in the endless i of human character. And yet this division founded in this very diversity of character is a violation of tru great Laws devised by supreme Wisdom for the moral government of Iii. It is founded in nature., and yet unnatural Here is a Paradox Here is blowing hot and cold with the same breath exclaims the Bat Stop and hear us out Good Reader and then do your own thinking upon Arhat to Tell you. This diversity of character is a part of Man s nature As he Lias made it by his own follies and not x part of the nature which god gave him and intended that he should maintain and carry out. Let us sex p a n. We will suppose two men with Wojt the same cerebral organization with wives exhibiting the same similar if these people were Mere a j nes without free Agency or Power i Choice they would move in the same a action with the same velocity and i Ach the same Point at the seme time. Iii Bertg free agents oae pair of them Choyia to cultivate certain faculties and u others and thus greatly in Irga then capacities for at cry step of their journey through i a their cerebral organization in and they reach its end much lie Tai n they were at its . One great Universal Law of rap duet Ion being the transmission of Vanlies from Parent to offspring the i n Dren of these parents have a better cerebral organization than that of their and thus Start on life s journey net Only with greater Capaci us for happiness but with greater Security for going right. Each child of to is second generation uniting in mar Riga with a cerebral organization equal tons own this third paid will transmit a nature still More improved and thus be perfectibility of human nature will proceed continually approximating to the other pair of the Adjis Eves having tha same Powers and Stirling from the same Point with the first choose a different direction cultivate the faculties which the other restrain those which they cultivated. The results already foreseen by the Reader Are precisely the reverse of those happening to the Ouier pair for their Means of Happi Vesg continually diminish they trans Mit these Means to their children and to the third generation in a i non need and diminishing ratio and this race proceeds continually de in continually diminishing its i for going right and augment probabilities of going wrong. After a lapse of several generations find two races of human beings senti ally different in greatly Superior to the other and Jet Ooth descended from parents of capacities and propensities. True of each race is natural in it being founded in organi Constitution the Anatomy and or Structure and operation material tools with which the mind works while connected the body. Yet the character of e Lafferior race is unnatural while differs from that of its progenitors each has made that nature what it is and a accountable for us work to the author of the Laws which it has obeyed or violated. What ii our conclusion it is that god gave to All men equal capacities for happiness and a code of Laws physical and moral thro which that happiness May be preserved augmented and secured that if these Laws be observed these capacities will improve and All will enjoy an Equality continually increasing happiness and will exhibit an Equality of approach to perfection that if these Laws be Ted these capacities will and in proportion to the diminish it. Degree of violation All will have an inequality of continually diminishing happiness and will exhibit an inequality of de parture from perfection. If then human beings continually did right All would be alike for All would be Angels and thus completely answer the end of almighty Wisdom and but As they continually do exhibit continual diversities All being lower than Angels and Miny As Low As devils and the whole combining to de feat the end of almighty Wisdom and Benevolence the happiness of rational creatures. Is our Paradox explained Are diversities of human character the natural result of deviation from natural Laws and therefore both natural and unnatural.? is evil the attribute of the nature which Man has made for himself by perverting the nature which god gave him and is Good the attribute of the nature which Man has himself by conforming to and improving the nature which god gave him answer for yourself can did Reader. But what concern has All this with the distinction Between Rich and poor we will answer the question. This distinction insults from the Cliverst to of human capacities Phi Sical and moral and this diversify results As we have already proved from the violation of natural Laws. If these Laws were Al ways observed Alt would be Rich in one sense. All would have All that nature improved nature required and human society would exhibit neither masters nor slaves nabobs nor paupers event so deep rooted so difficult of re formation in mis governed not yet exist among us. But this classification has begun its causes exist and Are rapidly producing their effects and these causes Are institutions which Are the work of both Rich and poor of from both each seeking the personal interest of the hour with out stopping to consider Remote yet inevitable consequences. A certain portion of the Peor would Check ail these causes by the wild impracticable suicidal theory of Agrari Anim or equal distribution they for getting that the endless diversity of human character would restore the Ine Quality even More rapidly than such violent measures could remove it. A certain portion of the Rich imputing this doctrine to the whole body of the poor would save themselves by perpetuating and augmenting the abuses which have produced the inequality and which continually tend to increase the number and destitution of the poor and diminish the number and augment o february whole no. 131. We constructed a Beautiful a u j Chine and set it in motion and v Auu Dilill ill the wealth of the Rich they forgetting that when the physical Force of the poor far outstrips that of the Rich and privation has rendered them desperate they will not Only do Justice to them selves but punish their oppressors far beyond the measure of desert. The history the French revolution should never be forgotten. Privileged orders owning the whole soil of the nation and occupying or closing All other ave Nues to wealth drove to madness a populace or people without privileges and suffered that righteous retribution which always follows the violation of fundamental Laws physical or mor Al. The same mischief was growing in England when a people far less de based than the French of the revolution turned upon their oppressors and taught them that violence will finally while we kept it Clear of dead weights did any political machine operate so Well. We soon began to Load it with rubbish and its movements Are already impaired. Established a National Bank. Having act Rood it in a Leih interval which however did not last Long enough to enable us to guard against the evil consequences of the sudden destruction we established an of insanity. In a Litcy interval that was merely a prelude to another and More violent fit of mad Ness we destroyed this other without guarding against the greater mischief which eve Ordinary sagacity might have foreseen As the of the destruction. We established a protective h Stem in the very midst of a banking system which rendered it in operative excepting to impose burdens upon these least Able to Bear them. We hive multiplied state Banks from three Young were seated in a richly apartment. They were the Amanda and Emma Ellis and their Cousin Delilah 1 he latter was engaged in the occupation of sewing the two former m discussing entity a All three ha4 been present the preceding evening. G is natural 8uperior race faulting from a violation of those great is which the creator of both races for their moral he sent them an their journey together and that of the Superior re lung from Observance of the god gave to both the same a e the Means of preserving and in frag it the Liberty of impairing or it reason and revelation and apply these then As the nature of each race nor poor houses but through the diversity of capacities caused by deviation from these great Laws Benefit of the Idle and ignorant. The second do not Stop at the just Point of preserving Possession inviolate however unequal it be or however inevitable and manifestly resulting from bad institutions deviations from the great aws of the Universal moral govern ment they insist upon maintaining hese very deviations these very institutions that continually operate As Caus of Ereat and increasing inequality. The Rich complain of the poor for endeavouring to draw a line of Demar shall keep Cor Plain of the Rich for endeavouring to maintain and multiply abuses which produce inequality of property and subject the Many to the dictation of the both Are wrong in these Eom for neither As a class seeks any such consummation and fortunately this classification of society so to mischief been England growing a second time and unless aristocracy yields its ill gotten privileges with a Good grape chartism will work then out in blood. May heaven in to Mankind interested in the dissemination of i Ruth by reason and not by three 10 eight Hundred and have thus imposed upon ourselves a Burden that almost defies All our recuperative ener Gies. A have multiplied life Insu ranges Trust companies and All sorts of association to enable the few to con Rol the a silly. We have plunged the states in of debt for trifles Long since consumed and have thus armed d few fort eign banners and Slock dealers with the Power of commanding All our poli tical Ali or and we have already be gun to tall about transferring this Load from the states to the nation and thus rendering the latter an article of Mer Chandise upon the London Stock exp change. And while the states Are mortgaged to foreign Bankers the Landeck property of our citizens is overlaid with mortgages to Trust companies and life insurance companies themselves Mort-1 Tim Eif d from All the change. And from Tese charter Force open the eyes and soften the hearts of aristocracy in time to save human rights from another bloody baptism. The heart sickens to thing that he Road to Liberty must Ever be dyed n blood and strewed with carnage. Shall these lessons be lost upon us.? shall we proceed in our downward i reer maintaining and multiplying Abu ses till the Rich and the poor Are Cert Vertex into two hostile armies panting for Mutual distr nation but our 3ublican institutions present an impassible Barrier to Yueh terrible consume indeed if our Republican institutions could operate fairly such apprehensions would be groundless. 3ut when they Are already loaded with jut Dens which obstruct their operation my when these burdens Are cont Ual y increasing in number and weight is t Wise to say that changes for the worse Are impossible comes our republicanism from England imported at a period when England was almost As Republican in theory and Pra Tice As we Are now. And what has the Fate of this very Republican so in England after Short Triumph first Over regal and ecclesiastical and then Over military desposit ism it fell under the Dominion of aristocracy which it has Ever since maintained a continual and unequal struggle. The vaunted revolution of 1683, which sex jelled tyranny in a Monarch established it in an oligarchy and the fruits Are Corn Laws prohibitory duties Eceles tical monopolies Banks chartered privileges and Means in endless variety or concentrating property in the few my imposing burdens upon the Many. Rotten boroughs and go ver mental Cor caption have been the instruments and pauperism and crime results. Though republicanism in England will through off these loads and hat already begun the righteous work yet history shows gradual imposition and with our eyes if we will use them May we now see their frightful magnitude number Ana weight. And shall the lessons taught by the he Parent of our own be lost upon us shall we Bandage our eyes with the conceit of our own invulnerability and thus exclude a vew of both the past and tha future if we will not profit by the experience of us at least be taught by our own for to have already proceeded downhill for enough monopolies have sprmg1 legions of private associations speculating in land n flour in beef in All the necessaries or conveniences of life and in a thou Sand ways enriching the few at the sex sense of the such is our own history. And if we continue on this downhill soon we reach the Corn Laws thru primogeniture the entails the privileged orders the pauperism the crime of England Fisher Ames was hardly mad in saying that our Republican morals would rot faster than White Birch stakes. And Jet Wilh the history of England before us and having already accomplished so much for my with our eyes upon the wide Dis fance Between our Point of departure my our present position we consider our republicanism in no danger but he elements Are at work and directly end to classify us into Rich and arrayed against each other in fatal strife the classification it not yet but it has begun a few of the Rich Are striving to hasten it by contending for he which produce it and the principle on which it is founded and a few of the poor Are accelerating 5ts Progress in alarming the timid and considerate by their violent projects of prevention. Agr arianism and Mono july Are thus operating together first aiding the last by insane attempts of destroy it. The remedy is in the hands of the Treme but the just medium and their course is not Only to Stop in their pro Gress but to go Back slowly. Do you like said a to her up country Lover.
