The Dignity of Labor
Gov. Harris, in his recent address at the
opening of the Tennessee State Agricultural
Fair, very truly characterizes as one ' of the
grave errors of the time, "a want of proper
appreciation of agriculture and the mechanic
arts as vocations of life." In which cornice
tion be further remarks : "It may be set
down as an axiom throughout the world, that
man never excels, if, indeed, he succeeds, in
any vocation where he does not feel that his
pursuit in life is in every way worthy of his
respect, interest, energies and highest efforts."
These truths, says the Nashville Union, arc
worthy of more than a passing notice. They
deserve to be seriously pondered by the thou
sands of intelligent minds in the country, to
whom they have a direct application ; for,
strange as it may seem, such is the force of
habit and prejudice, that errors so evident
and absurd ;to admit of no defence, often fas
ten themselves upon the most intelligent
The laWs.'of justice emphatically declare
that labor is the source of wealth ; that in
dustry is the parent of riches ; that it is,
therefore, honorable to be industrious and
useful, and dishonorable to be idle and use
less ; , that those who build our houses, con
struct our highways, improve and cultivate
the country, furnishing all the necessaries,
comforts and even luxuries of life, are the
most useful, and consequently the most re
spectable classes in society.
These are self-evident truths, and yet, in our
present artificial state, this natural order of
things is almost entirely reversed. The idle
class is most respected—those who do nothing
but live, are often recognised as the most gen
teel. And yet no one is so deserving of pity
as he that does nothing and has nothing to do.
The idler is guilty of"a permanent fraud upon
society ; he is not only absolutely good for
nothing, but he is more than useless. His
existence is a positive evil, inasmuch as he
diminishes the wealth of the country, by di
minishing the number of producers, and the
industrious are compelled to support him by
their toil and fatigue into the bargain. An
eminent writer upon Political Economy has
- taken the high ground that those who do not
• work themselves have absolutely nothing in
common with labor, the laws that govern it,
• nor with the interests that direct it. Wheth
er the position be strictly true or not, society
would be greatly benefited if it could, in a
great degree, be acted upon, to the breaking
down of unthrift and the building up of the
.rights and interests of Labor.
'1 It is a. singular contradiction that while all
persons frankly admit the high
respectability of Labor theoretically, the very
:same parties will deny it practically. We
often speak of the laborer as nature's noble
man, receiving liis patent from the Deity him
self; and refer to the proudest names in an
cient councils as belonging to the tillers of
',,the ground. And yet in practice we deny
- all this, preferring the ease and attractiveness
~ of idle gentility and splendid laziness. And
Darid Cla rhwon—l n-
True Bill. Nut yet
thus it is that two-thirds of our young men
of passable education had rather be fourth
rate lawyers without practibe, than success
ful mechanics—or recognized quacks in the
profession of medicine, or gambling bankers
without capital, or adventurers in a thousand
other ways, in preference to becoming farmers,
or any of the simple but honest pursuits
of labor. It is a melancholly infatuation, as
pernicious as it is false and unfounded. It
is a species of madness and folly, which, if
not checked, will sooner or later cover our
land with desolation. Without a wholesome
reform in public opinion in this respect, the
hardy virtues, which alone can preserve our
hallowed institutions from decay and corrup
tion, will have passed away forever.
The remedy suggested by Gov. Harris is
the true one, to establish in agriculture and
the mechanic arts a high standard of excel
lence, and then inculcate the axiom, recog
nized by thinking men throughout the world,
" that man never excels, if, indeed, he suc
ceeds in any vocation, where he does hot
feel that his pursuit in life is in every way
worthy of his respect, interest, energies and
highest efforts." And that, "hence, the ag
riculturist or mechanic who feels that his
position in society is compromised by his
calling, can never enter upon its duties with
that singleness of purpose and fixed resolve
absolutely necessary to eminent success in
every department of business life; and that
the effort which made by this character, of
hesitating or reluctant hand, must result in
the failure of the enterprise, and the degra
dation of a position which the individual is
unworthy to fill."
Let them truths be taught by our fathers; let
these be taught in our schools and by our mor
alists; and let farmers and mechanics now upon
the theatre ofaction,give apractical application
and begin the work of illustrating their moral
force and beauty to the world, and the real
philanthropist and patriot will soon have oc
casion to rejoice over the workings of a re
form more important in its results and lasting
in its consequences than any which has yet
improved or ameliorated society in the entire
history of our country.
How the Price of Bread is Managed in
Every bag of wheat, flour or meal, that
comes to the city, must be brought to the
Halle au 131 e, or Grain Hall. This is an
immense area, enclosed with a circular wall,
and covered by a huge dome, so that it pre
sents a vast, unbroken hall, 'of grand and
beautiful proportions, lighted from the top.
Various stalls, with desks, form the offices of
the clerks and employees. On the floor of
this ball are piled up, cob-house fashion, in
huge piles, ten to twenty-five feet high, the
bags of grain, presenting to the visitor, a
striking panorama of solid plenty.
The city of Paris is surrounded by a wall,
nut fur defence, as it is comparatively slight,
hut simply for police, revenue, and other
municipal purposes, one of which, is the
reulation of the bread market. Barriers . ,
that is gates, with police attendants and
revenue officers, form the only entrances to
the city, except the river Seine, which has
also its guards. Every bushel of wheat or
other grain brought to the city for sale, must
be registered and stored at the grain hall,
under heavy penalties. This regulation is
rigidly enforced, which it is easy to do, at
the barriers, with so bulky an article ; espe
cially as the bags must be of uniform size.
_From this register of the daily supply, the
government of the city know at any hour
just how many pounds or peeks of grain of
a y kind there are in Paris. From the
accurate statistics required to be furnished,
they know how much flour or meal is baked
daily at each bakery, and how much bread
of all kinds is consumed. They are, there
fore, able to fix the weight and price of
loaves, each size and shape of which has its
appropriate name, according to the ratio be
tween supply and demand, allowing a fair
and just profit to producers, traders, and
bakers, no more, no less. This price, thus
fairly graduated, at short intervals, is fully
proclaimed to the public, the dealers, the
bakers, and the police.
The police are authorized to drop in, at
any time, into any bakery, or breadshop,
wherever bread is exposed for sale, and
weigh the loaves. There is also a special in
specting officer appointed for this express
purpose. Ills visits are not stated, that they
may not have things got ready for exhibition
instead of inspection, according to the English
and American fashion of doine , such things.
If the inspector finds the weight deficient, or
price of a particular kind of loaf too high for
the grade, all the bread in the shop is swept
oil at once, and distributed to the hospitals
and other eleemosonary establishments of
the city. Thus are the public protected
against private cupidity speculating in the
means of existence.
A correspondent of the St. Louis Republi
can, speaking for the Mormons, demands an
investigation, and the editor of that paper
calls upon the President to appoint a com
mittee for that purpose—a committee of gen
tlemen, high minded and unprejudiced. "Let
the lion be bearded in his desert-den, and dig
from the biddeu caves of Utah the dark evi
dences of their treasons and seditions. The
Mormons have demanded, and now the peo
ple of the United States demand, investiga
tion. It, may he that the nation has, after
all, been hood-winked by speculators, who
have filched the treasure of the nation at
home, and now are reaping in Utah the gol
den harvest of their misrepresentations and
slanders. Merchant sutlers and princely
freighters may have been playing a deep
game fur the public funds, and there, and
there only, may have been the nest where
the treason of Utah was hatched." An in
vestigation would certainly do no harm, and
as the parties who affirm that they have been
slandered, desire one, let them have it in
common justice. It is due as well to the
Mormon leaders, as to the rank a.:O
many of whom have no doubt been sadly de
A NARROW EgAPE FROM A FORTUNE.-A
gentleman of Baltimore, Md., formerly con
nected. with the turf, recently made a visit to
England, and while there attended a number
of the races, betting pretty freely in a small
way, and generally coming out winner. Fi
nally, just before leaving, he went to the
Cesarewitch races, with.".a balance in his fa
vor up to that date, of some 514,000 on his
operations, and finding the odds ten to one
against Ten Broeck's Prioress, he concluded
to risk his pile on her. She came out about
six inches behind. had she won, he would
have pocketed $140,000. To come within six
inches of making that amount of money, we
should call running a pretty narrow chance.
Arrival of a Company of Mormon El
ders from Utah.
A company of Mormon Elders has arrived
in Missouri from Utah. A letter from one of
the Mormons there says :—" The company
with which I traveled consisted of twenty
nine persons, nine vehicles and twenty-four
animals. At the time of our leaving Salt
Lake City, on the 16th of September last, all
was peace and quiet in Utah. The wheat
crops had been harvested, and peaches and
other fruit were in abundance. The mer
chant trains bad principally all arrived;
goods very high and money plenty. I was
informed by the mail-driver who passed us
that ex-Chief Justice Ecklcs had left the
scene of his great exploits, and was return
ing to his home in the States, having received
a gentlo hint that his services as Chief Jus
tice of Utah, could very well be dispensed
with by the citizens of that Territory. Quite
a number of the citizens of Utah have been ,
employed by the officers of the army at
Camps Scott and Floyd, in the erection of
barracks and other. preparations for their
The health of Ex-Gofernor Young was
good. He attends to his business as usual,
and enjoys the full confidence of the resi
dents of that Territory. Governor Cumming
is highly respected as the Chief Magistrate,
and has proved himself thus far to be an
honorable and high-minded man. Judge St.
Clair and Indian Agent Dodge, had arrived
a few days previous to our leaving. We met
Colonel Morris' company of infantry on the
'Big Mountains,' en route for Camp Floyd,
in Cedar Valley. We met also a Danish
company of Mormons at. the head of Echo
Canon, that had emigrated from Denmark
this season ; also Judge Appleby's company,
on the 24th of September, at the Three Cros
sings of Sweet Water, all well. We met
thirteen hundred wagons, belonging to differ
ent individuals, freighted with provisions and
clothing for the army, each wagon drawn by
eight yoke of cattle, averaging sixty hundred
weight to the wagon.
We passed many camps of Sioux and Chey
enne Indians, all of whom were friendly.
They had burnt the prairies for several hun
dred miles, which rendered feed scarce in
some places ; our animals, however, did well,
and we performed the journey in thirty-three
traveling days, which, at this season of the
year, is considered a quick trip."
A Costly Road.
Bayard Taylor in one of his letters from
gives an interesting account
of the railroad between that city and Mos
cow, in which several enterprising Americans
are deeply interested. He states that it is
as straigh tas a sunbeam, and that the Emperor
Nicholas had it built upon the shortest possible
distance between the two cities, by carrying it
for hundreds of versts through swamps, where
an artificial foundation of piles was necessary.
Mr. Taylor considers it the finest railway
in the world, and adds :
There are thirty-three stations between
Moscow and St. Petersburg. At the most of
these the station houses are palaces, all built
exactly alike, and on a scale of magnifi
cence which scorns expense. A great deal
of needless luxury has been wasted upon
them. The bridges also are, models of solid
ity and durability. Every thing is on the
grandest scale, and the punctuality and ex
actness of the running arrangements are wor
thy of all praise. But at what a cost has all
this been accomplished? This road 400
miles in length over a level country, with
very few cuts, embankments, and bridges, ex
cept between Moscow and Tver, about one
fourth of the distance, has been built at an
expense of 120,000,000 of rubles, ($90,000,000)
or $225,000 per mile. When one takes in
consideration the cheapness of labor in Rus
sia, the sum becomes still more enormous.

vanish when reflection points to the fact, that the salve
is a combination of ingredients, each and every ono apply

BALLET'S MAGICAL PAIN EXTRACTOR
in its effects is magical, because the time is so short be
