Is it for sect and creed to fight, To call our zeal the rule of right, When what we wish is, at the host To see our church excel the rest? _ Is it to wear the Christian dress, And love to all mankind profess, To treat with scorn the humble poor, And bar against them every door? Oh, no I ieligion means not this, Its fruit more sweet and fairer is ; Its precepts this—to others do As you would have them do to you It grieves to hear an ill report, And scorns with human woes to sport ; Of others' deeds it speaks no ill, But tells of good or else keeps still. And does religion this impart? Then may its influence fill my heart! Oh ! haste the blissful, joyful day, When all the world may own its sway FEMALE CLERKS.—The editor of the Albany Knickerbocker is in Europe, and sends the following account of the gen eral employment of females: The women, by the way, do nearly all the trading hi Ireland. At our ho tel a woman shows you to your room ; you pay your bill to a woman, and you are politely bowed out of the house by the housekeeper. It is rare to find a retail store in Cork where a female is not seen behind the counter. We are told that the same thing prevails throughout all the British provinces. Tho reason given for employing them is that their follies are not only less numerous, but much lower priced. Fe males may sport fifty dollar mantles, but they never go on fifty dollar 'busts.' Females never spend a whole week's wages on billiard tables. Girls never 'put-the party through,' kick 'hp a row and got dragged to the station house. Fast horses they avoid, and roulette tables and game cocks. Who ever saw a female hanging round a gambling ta ble, or betting her last five dollars that she can tell where the 'little joker' is? Who ever saw a female clerk, after the store was shut, rambling up Broadway, 'raising thunder,' and breaking things? Who ever saw a respectable girl knock ing over dry goods boxes and standine. 'M. P.'s' on their heads? No one ; and yet respectable young men do these things nightly. When was a female clerk ever arrested for having a 'sus picious character' locked up in the store with her after midnight? In view of all these facts, is it any won der that the merchants on this side run to female clerks ONE HUNDRED THOUSAND DEATHS CAUSED By STAIWATION.—A letter from Paris, dated January 5, says : "The poorer classes are now undergoing tre mendous sufferings, not only iu France, but in Algeria. In that colony, ac cording to the Archbishop of Algiers, the Arab population are dragging out an existence of misery—feeding, liko animals, on the foliage of trees, wan dering almost naked (writes Monseig neur, along the roads, awaiting, in the neighborhood of cities and villages, for the emptying of household refuse, to quarrel over the filthy remains. To these starving, nay, dying tribes, noth ing that can be devoured is repulsive. So desperate is their condition (1 trans late the Archbishop's words) that 'they actually dig up the carcasses of animals that have died of disease. A heap of ten and twelve bodies of dead Arabs lying by the roadside is no un common spectacle.' When these poor men feel the approach of death—the slow and horrible death of famine— they do not complain ; they stretch themselves near some roadside, cover themselves as well as they can with the wretched rags they may possess, and covering their faces, await their last hour, murmuring the name of 'AI. lab !' it is thus they died of cholera all last summer ; it is thus they now die of hunger, literally mown down by this plague. Calculations which aro not exaggerated bring the number of the victims within the last six months to above ono hundred thousand." THE BIRTIIPLACB OP GENIUS. -It is one of the mysteries of life that genius, that noblest gift of God to man,is nour ished by poverty. Its greatest works have been achieved by the sorrowing ones of the world in tears'and despair. Not in tho brilliant saloon, furnished with every comfort and elegance—not in the library well fitted, softly carpet ed, and looking out upon a smooth green lawn or a broad expanse of seen ery—not in ease and competence is genius born and nurtured, but more frequently in adversity and destitution, amidst the harassing cares of a strait ened household, in bare and fireless garrets, with the noise of squalid chil dren, in the midst of the turbulence of domestic contentions, and in thy deep gloom of uneheered despair, is genius born and reared. This is its birth place, and in scones like these, unpro pitious, repulsive, wretched, have men labored,studied,and trained themselves u tit they have at last emanated out or the glooin of that. obscurity, the hhin ing lights of their times—become the companions of kings, the guides and teachers of their kind, and exercised an influence upon the thought of the world amounting to a species of intel lectual legislation. -PERSEVERE.- The Latest Wonder. A Steam Man---An Extraordinary Invon- Lion [From Ow Nowa11: (N. J.) Advertiser,] Mr. Zaddock Deddrick, a Newark machinibt, has invented a man ; ono that, moved by steam, will perform some of the most important functions of humanity ; ttiat will, standing up right, walk or run, as he is bid, in any direction and at almost any rate or speed, drawing after him a load whose weight would tax the strength of throb stout draught. horses. 'rho his tory of this curious invention is as fol lows : Six years ago, Mr. Deddriek, the in ventor, who is at present but 22 years of age, conceived the novel idea of constructing a man that should re ceive its vitality from a perpetual mo tion machine. The idea was based on the well-known. mechanical principle that if a heavy weight be placed at the top of an upright slightly inclined from a vertical, gravitation will tend to pro duce a horizontal as well as vortical motion. The project was not success ful. However, observing carefully the cause of the failure, preserving and perfecting the man form, and by sub stituting steam in place of the perpetu al motion machine, the present suc cess was attained. The man stands seven feet and nine inches high, the other dimensions of the body being correctly proportioned, making him a second Daniel Lambert, by which name ho is facctitiously spo ken of among the workmen. Ile weighs five hundred pounds. Steam is gene rated in the body or trunk which is nothing but a three horse power en gine. The legs which support it are complicated and wonderful. The steps aro taken very naturally and quite easily. As the body is thrown for ward upon the advanced foot the oth er is lifted from the ground by a spring and thrown thrward by the steam.— Each step or pace advances the body two feet., and every revolution of the engine product.," c 0.,. prkee.fr A 9 rho on gine is capable of making more than a thousand revolutions a minute, it would get over the ground, at this calcula tion, at the rate of a little more than a mile a minute. As this would be work ing the legs faster than would be safe on uneven ground or on Broad street cobble stones, it is proposed to run the er!ine at the rate of five hundred re volutions per minute, whioh would walk tho man at the modest speed of half a mile per minute. The fellow is attached to a common Rockaway carriage, the shafts of which serve to support hint in a vertical posi tion. These shafts aro two bars of iron, fastened in tho usual manner to the front of the carriage,and aro curved so as to be joined to a circular sustaining bar, which passes around the waist like a girth, and in which the man moves so as to face in any direction. Besides these motions, machinery has been arranged by which the figure can be thrown backward or forward from a vertical nearly forty-five degrees.— This is done in order to enable it to ascend or descend all grades. To the soles of the feet spikes or corks aro fixed, which effectually prevent slip ping. The whole affair is so firmly sustained by the shafts, and has so ex cellent a foothold, that two men are un able to push it over, or in any way throw it down. In order to enable it to stop quickly, it is provided with two appliances, one of which will, as before stated, throw it backward from the vertical, while the other bends tho knees in the direction opposite to the natural position. An upright post, which is arranged in front of the dash board, and within easy reach of the front seats, sustains two miniature pilot wheels, by the turning of which those various motions and evolutions are directed. It is ex pected that a sufficiently largo amount of coal can be stowed away uider th,g back seat of the carriage to work the engine for a day, and enough of water in a tank tinder the front seat to last half a day. In order to prevent the "giant" from frightening horses by its wonderful appearance, Mr. Deddrick intends to clothe it and it as nearly as possible a likeness to the rest of humanity. The boiler, and such parts as are nccossar ly heated, will be 'encased in felt or woolen undergarments. Pantaloons, coat, and vest, of the latest styles, aro provided. Whenever the fire needs coaling, which is every two or three hours, the driver stops the machine, descends from his seat, unbuttons "Daniel's" vest, opens a door, shovels in the fuel, buttons up the vest and drives on. On the back between the shoulders the steam cocks and gauges are placed. As these would cause the coat to set awkwardly, a knapsack has been provided that completely cov ers them. A blanket neatly rolled up and placed on top of the knap-sack perfects the delusion. The face is moul ded into a cheerful countenance of white enamel, which -contrasts well with the dark hair and moustache. A sheet iron hat with a gauge top acts as a smo':o stack. The cost of this "first-man" is $2,000 though the makers, Messrs. Deddriek & Grass, expect to manufacture suc ceeding ones, warranted to run a year without repair, for $3OO. The same parties expect to contract, on the same principle, horses which will do the dit ty of ten or twelve ordinary aninods of the same species. These,'it is con fidently believed, can be used alike be fbre carriages, street cars and ploughs.

SPIRIT OF THE PRESS, Congress and the Supreme Court. From the Now York Time; (Republican.) The extremists aro reckless, if not desperate. For twelve months past they have been engaged in tying the hands of the President, and stripping him of authority conferred by the Con. stitution; and now they aro about to attempt the same operation upon the Supremo Court,. with the view of pro• ventin g an adverse decision 'upon the Reconstruction acts. Cu the part of those who share the views of Mr. Stevens, tlie talked-of measure will be consktent. Whatever else may ho charged against them, they at least have. not resorted to false pre tenses to justify the Congressional pol icy. No constitutional scruple has been allowed to stand in their way. They have boldly confessed that policy un constitutional, and have rested its de fense upon the plea of revolutionary necessity. The Constitution, accord ing to their theory, is for the time subject to the higher law of the con- quoror as interpreted by a partisan majority. If essential to their plans, they would disregard every constitu tional right of the Executive, and make the Supreme Court in all things sub ; servient to their will. In pursuance of the latter determi nation, it is understood that the louse Judiciary Committee have in propara ration a bill making imperative the concurrence of two-thirds of the Su premo Court in any decision involving the issue of constitutionality. The movement has its origin in an appre hension that a majority of the court will sooner or later pronounce the Re construction law uneonstitutional; and the considerations which have hereto fore prevailed in Congress may possi bly again assert their sway. For, by passing the measure proposed, an ad yorso decision will be rendered impos sible—so far as Congress can contrib ute to that result; since three of the judges aro town adherents to as If this projecqrovail, the higher at tributes of the Lourt will be destroyed. The principle will be in effect affirmed that partisan exigencies, real or sup posed, constitute the supreme law; that the Court, created by the Constitution in part to judge of the validity of Con gressional action, shall henceforward be powerless, whatever the character of that action may be. To-day the proposition is that, instead of a major ity oldie judges, twolhirdsof the whole shall concur; to-morrow, if necessary, the concurrence of all may be required. There is no limit to the interference if it be commenced—no restriction save that which a majority of the dominant party may for the moment impose up, on themselves. They proclaim that they may enact what they please, and may obviate objection on the ground of unconstitutionality by usurping power to mould the decisions of the Court in any shape which to themselves shall seem. best. If it be unmanageable after exacting a two-thirds judgment, or a unanimous judgment, 'the number of judges may be increased ; and thus, by ono device or another, the independent jurisdiction of the Court may he de stroyed. NO more significant commentary on the reconstruction legislation—no more startling illustration of the unscrupu lousness which actuates the Radical leaders— can he connived, than that whii2h this affair affords. The coward ice as well as the bravado of guilt is stamped upon its face. It shows an utter absence of confidence in the con stitutional efficacy of measures which are applicable to the South, and an ut ter want of moral courage to uphold the principles that are involved. A consciousness of right usually inspires calmness and strength, and the party which realizes it seldom shrinks from the coutingemaes incidental to political warfare. These extreme radicals, however, seem to shit( their oyes when they rush ahead. They aro afraid of the ground they tread upon, and of phantoms at every turn. Now it is of the President, anon of the District Commanders, and yet again of the Su premo Court. We suspect that they also 'begin to fear the people in whose name they act, and whose instinctive sense of justice revolts against the abuse of their delegated'power. The idea seems to prevail in the Reconstruc tion and Judiciary Committees that there is no time to lose. The thing called reconstruction must be pushed through, even though it be necessary to muzzle the Supremo Court Judges. How the Court will treat the attack upon its independence remains to be seen. It is not likely to respect or to obey a law which interferes with its constitutional functions, notoriously for the accomplishment of an uncon stitutional purpose. What thou ? Sup pose the Court, by a majority of its members, declares the IZeconstruction acts constitutionally invalid, and refuSe to recognize as constitutional and law defining the conditions of a judgment ? Will Congress, having failed to legis late the Court into compliance, under take to legislate it out of 'existence? Will a party majority make the Gen eral-in-Chief the judge of the Judges, as well as the superior of the President? Will they at Met avow their contempt for the Constitution add their resolve to proceed regardless of its provisions? To this position their steps unquestion ably tend, and the only influence that can restrain them will he fear for their own saii3ty. Of what possible value, then, will he thj policy of Congress when pushed to emrctuitios? 'A party whose leaders trample on the eowititu dun because it, impedes their opera tions, cannot long retain the confidence of th 3 country, and when their Over throw comes—as come it must—what will be the fato of their policy ? what TERMS, $2,00 a - year in advance. lating and usurping ? These aro in quiries which concern more than them selves, for they indicate the reopenhig of the Southern question and the re constructing of reconstruction, as con sequences of the recklessness which marks the radical programme. TEIE SUPREME COURT BILL. A Radical Protest Against It Among the few Radical journals that oppose the late action and evident in tentions of the Radicals in Congress is the N. Y. Evening Post, edited by the venerable Wm. Cullen Bryant. In that paper of Thursday last we find a lead ing editorial which inveighs - eloquently against the policy of Congress, and especially against the hill to subvert the Supreme Court. It says: Nothing is more sacred in popular estimation than the character of the Supreme Court. It is tho tribunal of final appeal, which determines the va lidity and application of laws, and more than any other body in the land needs to he kept free from political complica tions and party biases. Its judges were made to hold their offices for lifo, with the allowance of a liberal salary, in order to render them independent of the motives of ambition or gain which ordinarily influence men. Set apart to administer the highest of trusts, it was the design of the Consti tution to raise them above the region of politics into the clearer atmosphere of justice and reason. "Justice," as Burke says, "is the supreme policy of nations," and they whose duty it is to determine justice exercise the suprom est function. Accordingly in all civil iq,d ages the judge has worn the er mine, which is the emblem of that spotless integrity that oombines purity of motive with clearness and impar tiality of judgment. It is this instinctive perception of the true character of the Judiciary that has always made -i-Ilitibm — jtiiiges so oaisi - s to the mind of.the people. Next in offensiveness to those who take per sonal bribes are those who allow polit• ical prejudices to warp their decisions. Jeffreys and Scroggs aro no more in famous for their violence and brutality than they are for their servility to the royal power which made them; and in our country, up to a recent period, the judge who should have carried his pol itics to the bench would have been pla ced on a level of degradation with those disgraceful beacons of English juris pruiince. Nor can wo mien yet, with all the degeneracy of public morals, look without some feeling of aversion and dread at the example of judicial of ficers who allow their names to be used as candidates for political preferment. When the Congress, therefore, en deavors to subject the Supreme Court to its control, by regulating the rule of its decision, and for no other cud appa rently than the secret purpose of meet ing a particular party issuo, we are startled by .1.11,9 strangeness of the event. It seems little short of a sacri legious audacity. But when the change they seek to introduce •is one of the gravest nature, affecting essentially the character of future decisions, and likely to lead to gross injustice in many conceivable cases, we aro bound to cry out, in our loudest voice, Halt. In the times of the elder Adams a change was made with a greater color of law, but with a similar,party object, in putting an additional number of jados—"midnight judgeS", they were called—upon the bench; but the indig nant republicanism of that day speedi ly swept away the innovation. With greater color of law, wo say, because Congress has the undoubted right to multiply judges when the pressure of business requires it; but Congress has no right to impose a rule of judicial de cision—least of all for party ends. To insist upon a two-third vote,when the judgment is unfavorable to a con gressional act, while a majority is au thorized to approve a congressional act, is to resolve in so many words that a party who profits by that act may come befOre the court on bettor grounds than the party who questions it, or trios to set it aside as unconstitutional. Suitors aro no limger equals in the presence of justice; the majority of judges is no longer the court, but a su perior number; and the same right which enables Congress to dictate a de cision by two-thirds would enable it to dictate unanimity—which, in practice, would amount to a complete nullifica tion of the constitutional ability of the tribunal.

In one of the darkest hours of the great struggle for natipnal existence against rebellious foes the Government called you from the Senate, and from, the comparatively safe and easy duties; of civil life, to place you in front, of the, enemy, and in a position of persona; toil and danger perhaps, more hazard- . sans than was encountered by any oth-, er citizen or military officer of the Uni ted States. With patriotic promptness you assumed the'post, and maintained, it under circumstances of unparalleled trials, until recent events have brought safety and deliverance to your State, and to the integrity of that Oonstitg: tional Union for which you so long and so gallantly perillod all that is dear to man on earth. That you may be . spared to enjoy the new honors, and perform the high duties to which you:, have been called by the people of the United States, is the .sincere wish of one who, in every official and personal relation, has found you worthy of the confidence of the Government and the honor and esteem of your fellow eiti• zens.

From the reported proceedings of the House of Representatiyes, risburg, on Friday, we take the fol lowing : Mr. Josephs (Dam.), of Philadelphia, offered the following : Resolved, That the Clerk be -author ized to furnish one copy of "Pardon's,' D,igest," with the last appendix bound in one volume, and one copy of "Zieg ler's Legislative Manual" to each mern c , ber and clerk. Mr. Deise (Dem.), of Clinton, moved, to amend by including only new mem bers. Disagreed to. Mr. Herr (Rep ), a Dauphin, said there could be no more valid reason for the purpose of "Ilurdon'et Digest'.' ten dollars a copy, than that th'e ,%ate, should purchase coats, boots, and shoee for the.members. Mr. Bull (Dom.), offered the follow-, ing proviso "Provided, That the said 'Pardon's Digest' shall remain as the property of the State; and at the expiration of this session shall be retained for the use of the subsequent House." Disagreed to. Mr. Nicholson (Rep.), reminded the, member that this resolution, if passed, would cost the State "only" $1600. Gentlemen might think the sum small and tho treasury groat. This remind ed him of the boy who web s tolirthat t his mother was to be "tapped" for the dropsy. The boy replied that ho never knew anything about their house that was tapped to last. (Laughter). The resolution was agreed to. Yeas, 53—Nays, 25. A similar resolution had previously passed the Senate. Now with such a start, the question is, what vgill be the ending of this business? In any it is a very bad beginning, a huge job' ground, out on the shortest notice.--, We hope it is not too late to undo" it., The Republican majority owe it to: themselves. to set their faces against this sort of thing. We hope the ayes and nays an every proposition of the kind, down to the last hour of the ses sion, will be pereistently called, so that the tax-ridden people can see who, are for and who are against piling up' expenses already great beyond all rea son. It is well'to understand that in both Houses this job was engineered by Democrats, probably the very ones most distinguished for crying out against the Republicans for increasing taxation.—Pittsburih , Commercial. timal. young lady possessing more vaulty than personal charms, remark=ed, in a jesting tone, but with an card: est glance, "she travelled on her good looks."
