Honor to our Workmen.
BY BLUE DESILD
Whom shall we call our heroes,
To whom our praises sing?
The pampered child of fortune,
The titled Lord or King ?
They live by others labor,
Take all„ and nothing give—
The noblest types of manhood
Are those who work to lire.
Then bettor to our workmen,
Our hardy sons of toil—
The heroes of the workshop,
And monarchs of the soil !
Who spans the earth with iron,
And rears the palace dome
Who acauts for the rich man
The comforts of his honie?
It is the patient toiler—
All honor to him, then !
The true wealth of a nation
Is in her workingmen.
For many barren ages
Earth hid her treasures deep.
And all her giant forces
Seemed bound as in a sleep ;
Then labor's " Anvil Chorus"
Broke on the startled air,
And lo ! the earth in rapture
Laid all her riches bare !
Tis toil that over nature .
Gives man his proud control,
And purities and hallows
The temple of his soul,
It startles foul diseases,
With all their ghastly train—
Puts iron in the muscle,
And crystal in the brain !
The Grand Almighty Builder !
Who fashioned out the earth,
Bath stamped His sail of honor
On labor from her birth.
In every angel dower
That blossoms from the sod,
Behold the master touched--
The handiwork of God !
Then honor to our workmen,
Our hardy sons of
The heroes of the workshop,
And monarchs of the soil!
A LcwN►n from the Stars.
Annie, walking in the meadow,
Asked me in her childish way,
What the silver stars were doing,
All the live-tong day.
Thoughtfully I made her answer—
Little "mak., maiden mMe,
Starlight■ know no m.t from duty,
Day and night they shine.
'Tis not thein+ to mark the sunlight,
Sweeping gaily through the skies
Steadily, in depths of azure,
Burn their restless eyes.
Come and learn a 'mum, Annie,
Still to keep your course the same
In the path that God bath given,
Heeding praise nor blame.
Conscious that one eye is watching
Seek from man no swill reward ;
Sutisfied with acting nobly,
Leave the rest to God.
The Great Pennsylvania Naturalist
What'er in earth, or sea, or sky,
Or shuns or meets the wand'ring thought,
Escapes or strikes the searching eye,

In the interior of Pennsylvania, amid
one of those picturesque mountain scene-
ries rendering the landscape delightful in
the highest degree, you mar see the home
stead of a distinguished Naturalist. It
has been not only claimed that our good
old State may regard it a great honor
that he is one of her native sons, but the
entire United States islhonored in his be
ing one of her citizens.
He was born April 20, 1782, and conse
quently is now a little minus of being 88
years old. He enjoys health, all his men
tal faculties, chops wood, walks to a vil
lage some distance, and back. The fath
er of our Naturalist published the first
Natural History of the Coleoptra of Penn
sylvania, as well as a number of other
works against Infidelity, &c.
The worthy son, in whom is literally
fulfilled the promise of a long life of those
who honor their parents, took up the sto
i ry of Nature, so faithfully pursued by his
venerable father, and to-day thefiappy re
suit is, the indefatigable sou stands high
on Parnassus, having a world-wide fame.
In 1102 oh the Pennsylvania Entomo
logical Society being formed, he was cho
sen their first President.
It was announced iu one of the celebra
ted reports of the Smithsonian Institute,
that his collections in some departments
of Entomology were among the best in
the United States. Some time ago these
collections were purchased by Prot Uhler
for Agazzis ' and have been removelito

He had more or less connection with
the Society of Arts and Sciences, and the
Philosphical Society -of PhiladelphiP, as
well us similar distinguished — KothetWs in
America and Europe. In 1853 the Smith
sonian Institute, of Washington;:pablish
ed his great work on the COleoptra of the
United States, which has been selected for
the library of Kings and Emperors. Let
ters of thanks have been tendered him
from the Imperial Library of France, &c.
It is written in English, French and La

kind in America.

the pleasure of forming, for the first time,
a most delightful acquaintance with our

Boston with his young wife, to attend the
opera. The lady was so fascinated that
