All hail ! Unfurl the stripes and stars !
Tke banner of the free !
Ten times ten thousand patriots greet
The shrine of Liberty !
Come, with one heart, one hope. one aim,
Au undivided band,
To elevate, with solemn rites,
The ruler of our land !
Not to invest a potentate
With robes of majesty :
Not to confer a kingly crown,
Nor bend a subject knee ;
We bow beneath no sceptre)! sway,
I They no royal nod ;
Columbia's sons, erect and free,
Kneel only to their God !
Our ruler boasts no kingly rank ;
No ancient, princely lino ;
No legal right to sovereignty,
Ancestral and divine ;
A patriot, at his country's call,
Responding to her voice ;
One of the people—he becomes
A sovereign by our choice !
And now, before the mighty pile
'\Ve've reared to Liberty,
Ile swears to cherish and defend
The charter of the free !
God of our country ! seal his oath
With thy supreme assent,
God save the Union of the States !

About forty years agomy mother needed
a new carpet forthe parlor. According to
time-honored custom, she invited her lady
friends of the village to a carpet rag sew
ing. Ohl coats, pants, jackets, vests, pet
ticoats, et cetera, had been carefully saved
for a year or more to meet such au enter
gency. On the day belbre the sewing,
mother mat le ample preparations, by baking
and cooking, to treat herlady friends with
an abundance of good things. At the ap
pointed hour they came, and a glorious
time they had durin:f the afternoon. The
huge quantity and great variety of old
clothes was soon converted into cut and
sewed carpet rags, ready for the weaver,
and in a few weeks more the family re
joiced over a beautiful new carpet, with
rich stripes of red, green and yellow, giv
in!, our parlor a splendid appearance. The
furniture consisted of the said new carpet,
a dining tattle, settee. half a dozen chairs,
a house clock with a seven feet high case,
a ten-plate wood stove dated 17Sl, fbur or
five eight by ton inch pictures--likenesses
of Washingb in, Jefferson, Adams and
Ilamilton—a bureau, and a four feet Ion! ,
wood-chest behind the stow. The spin
niter-wheel, when not in use, was also
recognized as au article properly belonging
to the parlor.
Forty years ago our sisters were taught
by their mothers to perform regular house
hold duties. They were required to bake
bread, make beds, knit stockings, spin
wool, flax and hemp, wash dishes, milk
cows, gather eggs, churn butter, feed pigs,
peel potatoes, plant corn, cook sour-kraut,
make hay, hoe corn, scrub and sweep
rooms, shake carpets, wash clothes, boil
soap, go to market and rock the baby.
Young ladies now-a-days learn to dress in
the most extravagant and ridiculous style,
read novels, study fashions, attend balls,
spend the old man's earnings, enjoy the
luxury of seeing mother do the work of the
household, and faint at the sight of awash
tub, a scrubbing brush, a piece of country
soav or a crying baby.
orty years ago, boys at the a;gc of four
teen or fifteen were bound out among;
strangers to learn trades, and serve terms
of years as apprentices--generally until
they attained the age of twenty-one vials,
when the young man received, according;
to contract, either an extra suit of clothes,
a set of tools, or in lieu thereof, from thirty
to forty dollars in cash as a •• freedom gift. "
During apprenticeship he was required to
rise very early in the morning, and work
front eleven to thirteen hours a day. Sum ,
apprentices had their daily tasks befbre
them, and received regular pay fin. doing
"over work," which en:doled them to earn
from fifty cents to one thdlar a week, and
lay up money which in .some cases enabled
them to stl) into business at t %veiny-out%
Boys frequently reserved the right during
apprenticeship to spend a few weeks in the
country, every year, to work at haymaking
and in the harvest fields. and earn for
themselves from sixty-two and a-half to
eighty-seven and a-half cents a day.
Young men of to-day are treated much
more tenderly, if not with more \Visdoin.
Instead of directit: their al tenthat to use
ful trades or occupations, they generally
go for situations in 'Hotels, Itestatirants
and ()likes. Ilundrols 0101 thousands
commence the study of Law, Medicine or
Theology without the least re!rard to their
naturallitnesstitrsuch professions. Trades,
requiting actual labia., and calculated to
develop manhood and lead to honor and

'Fills startling truthmust very soon engage
he serious attention of all g4)041 and right
minded people. to the end that the fearful
tide 4)f dissipation may 1w reversed and
the sat'ety of the rising general )littssured.
Forty years ago, spirituous liquor was
considered an article of refreshment, and
those only were licensed to retail it who
were amply provided with house room and
accommodations tbr strangers ;11141 t ra yel
lers. In other words, btverns Only, afford
ing accommodations, such ;Is meals, lod.o•-
in;rs, horse feed and stabling, could receive
license to sell strong drinks. To Permit
tippling and loafing about bar-rooms, forty
years ago, was an indictable olfense, and
punished as such to the Intl extent of the
law. No yours! , man under twenty-one
years of age would think of steppinr up to
a bar and calling tbr a drink, lir if he did,
ill most cases he was promptly ejectel fro II
the premises.
To-day we find our towns and villages
full of mere drinking shops and drunkard
making ilistitutions. The hotel-keepers
who furiUsli the necessary aeconntiodat ions
Il)r strangers and travellers, and who. to
carry on a legitimate, necessary and re
spect;tble public bnsiness, find that they
can no longer depend upon the profits of
the bar to assure success in business, and
to sustain themselves they must increase
their profits on meals, lodging and other
hotel accommodations. The drinking
branch of the hotel busine;:s is rapidly
passing into the hands of mere drinking,
saloon keepers. These are provided with
condOrtable arm-chairs, private rooms for
card-players, and other contrivances cal
culated to attract and entrap the young,
who, night after night, waste their time
and means, and hasten with all possible
speed to their inevitable doom. Strong
drink is no longer I(tokeduponas an article
of refreshment, and to be sold only as such
to strangers and travellers, but it is now
within the molt of all, from youth to old
age, only to demoralize and destroy. The
fearful increase of intemperance isnot the
work of the hotels, but principally of the
thousands of imported drinking shops in
our cities and villages throughout the laud.
The use of eoculus, indigus, strychnine and
other deadly poisons, in making lager beer
and intensifying whiskey, in addition to
the natural tendency of alcohol, is now
