acquaintonco of strangers of all classes,
approached a clearing not far . from the
present decayed villugo of Dorchester'.
Tho houso was but of ono story, built o(
thick-hewn timber, and surrounded by
.Iscanty fields in which tho slumps of the
original forest trees were jet visiuic. nui

comfortable kitchen, with ils nicely scour

rayed in bright rows tho pewter plates.
His footsteps had scarcely sounded on the
floor before a light figure sprang to meet
nm, and the next instant was locked in
his arm.

It is by this means that
they bocomo great. Who would think of
having fruitful crops without labor 7 The
soil must be cultivated or it will not pro
duce. So great men are not a spontane
ous production of nature, but they are
formed by the severest toil, tho strictest
self-denial and the most active energy.
Mechanics, laborers ond farmers aro often
snarled at because their hands nre horny
nnd their clothes soiled ; but do these men
reflect that it is those very mechanics, la
borers and farmers who mainly contribute
to sustain tho Government ? It is upon
them that our safe ty or honor rr6ts ; they
arc the slrong arm of tho State, and the
fortifications of the Republic. Tho man
who sneers nt them because of their cal
ling in life, nnd derides manual labor and
toil, is no honor lo tho raco of humanity

tho latter conclusion.
Labor is one of tho first commands of
God I Idleness is deprecated in Holy Writ
the ono is honorable, ond tho other dis
honorable. Labor strengthens tho physi
cal constitution ; it gives power to "the
mind, it ennobles tho feeling, nnd makes
great men nnd good citizens. Idleness on
iho contrary, impairs tho body, cnervatos
iho mind, destroys natural integrity, pro
moles dissipation, nnd is a source of incal
culable evil. It will, on examination, be
found to be the root of intemperance and
debauchery, and irl' many instances of
crime. It wrecks the physical system,
debases tho mental faculties, fills our pris
ons and poor-houses, and cumbers the earth
with a raco of beings who livo upon tho
sweat of others' brows, and pass off the '
stage of life without benefiting others or
developing themselves. Is not labor then
more genteel than idleness?
The Kassas Seal. Robert Lovctt, or
