Libor-7M Claims, and its &wards.
The following extracts of an Address delivered be the
Rev. HANOI' COLLAR, of Massachusetts, before the Ag
ricultural Society of Worcester, in that state, will be
found interesting to our readers, and especially to our ag
ricultural friend.. The subject of the address is 'Labor,'
more panicutarly Agricultural labor. as exerted in Mas
sachusetts. but the great portion of his remarks have a
general application, sod are full of instruction.
There is an earnestness, a straight-forward course, a
l.,va of, and familiarity with, the subject of which hr
treata,4 thorough:ac.ipsintintee with the principles which
regulate and reward labor, that places the author among
the that who labor in the cause of agriculture.

the labor of individuals. applied iii its most
minute forms, and.at successive. times. When
De Witt Clinton first struck a spade, little big
ger than a man's two hands, into the ground
and, 'This shall bring the mighty waters of
Lake Superior into the ocean. and the vast, and
as yet unimagined treasures of the great %Vest
shall float upon their descending current,' few
minds could believe that this was any other
than such stuff as dreams are of. But the
prediction was accomplished, and in his day.—
The thundering cannon never sent lot th a more
electrifying peal, than :when its suceeasive accla
mations along the whole bright line antiommed,
that the nuptial union between the vast lakes of
the north and the beautiful Atlantic was con
summated. Never was a gladder note poured
into the patriot's ear since the Declaration of
1776, than the assurance which then fell upor,
it, that these internal communications, these
glittering silver bands, were to form the strong
bonds of friendly union and sympathy with
those distant tel now brought into s uc h
near conjuction ; territories behire scarcely
known to each other', by name, new shaking
hands with each other as next-door neighbors."
The speaker thus truly sets forth the claims
of labor upon the consideration of the public.
and in a few words unfolds some of the first and
great principles of political economy :
• Agricultural labor is the basis and instru
ment of wealth. The laboring man is the origin
al producer of all the wealth in the cinniounity,
and in the world. The almost creative power
with which God has endowed man, by which
he cast's 'the seed into the ground and by his
lostering cam matures the harvest, is among the
most wounderful attributes of his nature. Let
the children of luxury and faaion disdain, if en
they choose, the humble laborers of agriculture;
Mr all they enjoy and possess they are tirst3tof
all indebted to the agricultural laborer ; and the
very money in which they think they com
pensate him for his toil, and u hich he in his
simplicity is so easly satisfied, until the modern
invention of fictitious capital Ad of the anticipa
tions of future tesults in the form of bills of
credit, was only the representative of the ac
cumulations of his own previous labor. All
the burdens of society aresustained. all its taxes
are paid, a't its improvemen t re effected by ag
ricultural and mechanical labor. The mann
fatters, who prepar the products of the groth
fo he use and convenience of manor construct
ion implements & machines by Which man's
is abridged, or his capacities of production ex
tended, must be considered in the light of pro
ducers. The learned professions seem to be
made neccessary only by the follies or impru
dences, or wickedness of mankind. The pro
fessors of the fine arts, the artists, are the mere
embellishments of the social edifice• beautiful
and charming when in their proper place. The
intellectual teachers of the community, when
they perform their high duties faithfully &
sophieally, exalt the condition of man and
multiply his capacities for labor and enjoyments.
Agriculture and the mechanic arts are most
largely indebted to science for their productive.
ness and utility. But none of these are produ-
ceas in the proper sense of that tom. MI the
burdens all the support of the community fall
upon labor. Nor do the accumulations o f the
labor of other years in the form of money ; nor
the bestowment of permanent funds for public
uses ; nor the discovery of a gold or silver mine;
nor pecuniary endowments fur any benevolent
or moral purposes in the form of vested funds.
an any respect abridge or alleviate labor.—
Capital itself in any form, if brought into active
use, is only anew demand upon labor. Capi
tal itself, let its accumulations be ever so great.
of itself will produce nothing. It is labor only
that can render it productive, and that in truth
pays all the income which is supposed to be de
rived from it. When by a liberal endowment
provision is made in the form of permanentfends
for the support of some public institution, it is
often said that nothing farther will be needed
but the intelligent observer will perceive that
these. funds will produce nothing of themselves,
farther than to stimulate production ; and that.
not by any intrinsic efficacy but by a more
political and conventional agency : but all pro
&mann must come from labor ; and this too
front labor applied to the earth. Not unfre
quently we hear the passengers in a stage coach
complain of the slowness and refractoriness of
the overloaded, jaded, and half-fed horses, and
of their own fatigues and sufferings even on a
j 'tint of pleasure. In some cases, if it were
practicable. it would be only just that such per
sons should be put into the traces, and the hor
ses into the carriage. But. .•have they not a
right to complain if they will ! Do they not
feed the horses !" Yes, and whip them ton.—
But will they not remember. that the very feed
by ayflielithese horsey are 4ustained, is the pro
slue; of fields which these same horses plough
ed. The whipping is a pure gratuity: and into
he received, doubtless, with all due gratitude.—
Labor. physical labor is the great instrument of
all subsistence, of all wealth, and of many of
our pleasures. Think of this, ye children of
!sultry and fashion! When you repose on .
your beds of down; when you traverse your
weigniticent halls with their soft 'carpets, their
festooned tapestry. their gilded cornices,lampe ;
when you set down to your overloaded boards,

when you challenge the pissers by to admire

side are brought into the account, is as gond .a

al or manufacturing stock in the country, in' the

After most clearly enforcing the duty of each
individual to do something-for himself and the
public ; after pointing out some of the reforms

that equal and exact justice may ne rendered to

of the country is owing ; ho
goese n to speak of
the protection which honest labor Mudd receive
front the- hands of the community, and the
necessity of preventing the man who labors,
from being either directly or indirectly defraud
ed of his just earnings.
" There is another prote'ction that honest
labor asks at the hands of the community; and
that is,that it should not he rubbed of its earnings
by any fraudulent form in which these wages
are paid. The laboring classes are none t'tan
any other class in the -community iterested in
the condition of the currency. It rep:mm.4
the it earnings: forms rly it represented only the
actual accumulations of labor ; now by an in
vention of modem times in the form of bills of
credit, it anticipates contingent. The credit
system has been to the country the source of
great advantages and improvements ; but all the .
abuses which it has suffered, and all the !meet),
which thosti abuse have occasioned, have fallen
directly and: entirely upon labor.
Bails, in their legitimate design, were in
tended for the safe use of the accumulations of
previous labor, in the form of capital, in order
to stimulate and assist honest industry and en
terprise; and in a young country where the
means of wealth are so abundant, to create a
capil,tl.for immediate use by a reasonable re-
ranee on 'inure returns
more just and uselul, and no scheme better de
vised under a safe and honest direction. No
one could question the safety and propriety of
such an operation, where the loan of this quick
capital was secured by an undisputed hen upon
real property of equal and certain value. The
only difficulty lies. in 'the creation of a purely
fictitious capital and the extension of credit up
on contingencies. It is obvious that these
operations could only he safe when after tho
rough consideration of proliabilities and chan
ces, such loans correspond '" l with the power of
the borrower to meet his demands fully and
certainty, when the time of these loans should
expire. This could only be determinea by the
occupation of the debtor, his habits, skill, en
terprise, and character ; and it was the clearest
dictate of prudence and justice, as well for the
creditor as the debtor, to keep always far with-
in the limits of safety. Had this always been
done, all would have been well. But when
banks are instituted without any substantial
capital honestly paid in, and in the true spirit of
the law •• to remain there as part of the capital

all safe and reasonable limits ; when capital" is
loaned not for the aid of honest industry and
private and public improvements, hut for the
purpose of enhancing the nominal value of pro
perty on which no labor is expended. and no
Improvements are made or even designed to
tie made; when a flood of irresponsible paper
is thrown upon the community for purposes
not of honest trade, but of gambling and specu-
!anon. then come the terrible and disastrous
explosions of the last year. Then labor is
everywhere tickled and lulled by soft and mag
nificent promises. while her pockets are picked
by the grossest villainy and frauds. It is clear
ly the duty of the government to protect the
laboring portion of the community against such
wholesale treachery. It is hoped that the coon.
try has learnt a lesson of wisdom which it.will
not soon forget. The flood of unsubstantial,
fictitious capital, which was poured out'npon
the country three years since, could it be fol
lowed out in all its ramified and various conse
quences, led beyond a question to frauds, and
crimes, and licentiousness, and losses, and
miseries, which the most brilliant successes of
honest teade, even for a quarter of century,
hardly atone for. Next to a hank that cannot
pay because it never had any thing to pay with,
is a bank that puts it out of its own power to
meet its promises, and maintain its honor, by
its own improvident and extravagant issues and
loans. It is a novel measure of right when the
law of obligations among individuals may be
violated by corporations with impunity ; and
there is some little ground to doubt the sound
ness of the discretion,. when justice not Only

A WORD TO MOTHERS!
Health is one of the best gifts of parents to their chil
dren, and without it, all the advantages of fortune are
but evils in disguise. Nature always admonishes the
parent when aid is required. If a young child cries
much, it must be ill, for it is not capable of being *free
ted by any ideas, but those of bodily pain or pleasure.—
At such times mothers are apt to give their infants roe.
containing intoxicating or stupifying properties,
and though this may answer their immediate purpose,
what bathe result! The children either die in canal&
a ions, or live miserable and unhealthy, pine in their
growth,,with debilitated stomachs, and palsied nerves.—
The food designed by natum for children is so clearly
pointed out, that it is marvellous bow any person can
be mistaken, the breast of the mother, or bread and milk
for infanta, is so clearly adapted to the delicate date 'of
their stomachs, that nothing can be substituted equally
nutritious and wholesome.' It is at the critical period
4" feet/sing," or when the infant is withdrawn from
Mother's 'breast, in order to substitute a Stronger diet,
that those fatal diseases arise which sweep off so many
