Tioga Eagle (Newspaper) - September 1, 1841, Wellsboro, PennsylvaniaGood one that the wheel of Fortune is constantly turning any More than be doubts that the Earth in her revolutions does the same daily. Any Man Slih thirty years experience Over his Lead can recollect specific times when by turns professions speculations and arts Sci ence merely and the Mechanic trades each had their Day and were looked upon As the sure precursors and bring ers in of Fortune frequently and competency always. Among All these per haps there is none with a surer Harbin Ger of Success that accompanying an gel which we All look for than the Trade of the Mechanic him of the rough skin and the hard Sun burned features and the Active Arm and the brow full of dust and sweat. Such a Man not Only comes nearer to the fulfilment of god s by the of the brow should Man earn his bread but he is nearer to the Actu Al wants of which men Are destined to feel and Are prone to satisfy. In no country can the Baker and the Shoemaker and the House builder and he who makes raiment men must have food and clothing and Homes to live in and under Del Circum stances such things instil exist and flourish sometimes we receive that like combing and froth capped wave of the Ocean luxury and indulgence ride High and for a moment sweep their providers on to sudden riches but that wave has to come Down the froth disappears or lies a thing of frailty upon the Beach while those who launched upon it too late or trusted it too Long frequently find themselves ashore too. But As in All oceans and amid All watery elevations which ebb and flow is an under which must always be provided will As trusted to the Mecha Nic trades when lost to View for a sea son resume their importance and their those would otherwise be wrecks upon the Sand and Landing others whom the false Beacon lights of speculations had entirely car ried out to sea.

The pulpit in this country generally speaking never has been a Means of nor has it been adapted for the purpose of Mere Money making. The motives which Lead this Man and the other to devote themselves to the salvation of souls Are too sacred to bespoke of in connection with our subject. We aim mainly to show and to make mechanics believe that at the present Day the dignity of labor is acknowledged As the most useful dignity assumed by Mankind. Its Superior to the Ermine of the Robe of the lawyer the surplice of la Crafty priest or the purple of the states Man. No Man now whatever to situation dares despise the Haid work ing Mechanic. Mechanics at present bring mind and intellects and High aspirations Bear upon their commonest work.
