Another Steamboat Outrage!
The steamboat Telegraph fired into by a
body of armed men at Brockville.—We
fear that a crisis is approaching which Will
throw our frontier into the whirlpool of
strife, for it is impossible that outrages so
glaring as are continually being perpetra•
'ied on the lakes, lean long be tamely borne
by either nation. The destruction of the

that another outrage has been perpetrated
by i n discreet—if nut wilfully, uniliciuus
The facts of this last act, as we gather
them from the captain of the Telegraph,
are substantially as follows:
The Telegraph left Oswego at 8 o'clock
on Saturday evening—touched at Prescot
as usual—and reached Brockville about 9.
here she landed at the lower dock—look
on board and left a number of passengers
--received the• visits and insults of an en
armed mob, who ransacked the cabins ,and
otherwise evinced a turbulent disposition—
arid was moving past the upper warf, when
she was hailed and Commanded to "come
to," The captain supposing there were
paiaengers in wailing, stopped the engine
sod dropped down to within 1 .?0 feet of the
Ock, but, apprehensive that all was not
right, be told the passengers to crime un
board in the small boat. , But this would

within a few feet of the warf, about twenty
muskets were fired, and FOUR OF,THE

of the chambermaid, and two str very

The Carlisle Republican inf the 31st ult.,
a zealous Muhlenberg paper in the contest
of 1835, and; undecided in relation to the
candidates now before the peoph3 of Penn
sylvania for the office of Goveor, comes
out in the following unequiv ocal manner
against David IL Porter.
That we shall not support ',David R.
Porter we _think extremely probable. ''But
why shall we not? Because, in the first
place, he having held ogee either from
the people or by Executive apJointment,
for fifteen or twenty years; to support him
would evince, on our part, a nmst shame
less disregard of the dearocratiti dootrimr
of RcrrsTtort ili Ornea, a doc(rine foun
ded in wisdom and safe - policy, and never
sacrificed to_ mere questions of e*pediency,
by the pure fathers and founders of the
In the second place, because we do not
deem him either mentally or morally qua
lified. His talents (with all the, opportu
reties he has had) are' below'mediocrity;
and his moral character is not so unques
tionable that a free and enlightened people
could make him the depcisitory of their
rights, moral, civil, political, and religious.
A man of loose moral principlsa., as we
believe David R. Porter to be, W:ho is not
gifted with a godlike intellect to counter-
balance and sway his moral infirmities,
is not fit to be the ruler of a free people.
In the third place, because, like every
other male member of his family, he is a
trimming politician, in whose integrity no
confidence can he placed; and fuither, - be
cause his whole family connexion have
been fed and pampered, for a period of
forty years and upwards, upon the "11pOils
of office"--Lin other worth, upon oney
wrung froth the hard hands of la borious
industry, in the shape of taxatibn. His
father and each of his brothers were, in
their day, the recipients of public favor;
and fed without stint upon theirlmaster's
Io the fourth place, because, ift elected,
we are led to believe he will stain the
pernicious measures of Martin Van Bu
ren's administration, by which 'the ener
gies of the country have been prostrated,
its treasures squandered upon Worthless
parasites, or expended in barbaious and
disgraceful wars tippn- unoffending Indian
tribes, who have been wronged, cheated,
and persecuted by white speculators sent
among them as Government agents.
In the fifth place, because he blithe can
&date, not of the people, but of the broken
down ex-office holders, who expdct thro'
him to come again into power, and support
themselves in a course of profligacy and
licentiousness at the public expenee.
Finally, we shall not support him, be.
cause we have no confidence in the man,
or in the party by whom 'he is abstained;
knowing, of our own . experience ; that all
their professions of democracy and love of
the people are hyperitical, and all their
designs low, sinister and selfish.
But who shall we support? We do not
like to keep our friend of the VolUnteer in
the dirk on this subject, but we *mot let
him no further into the secret now, than
to say, that when, in our estunat,ien, the
proper time shall have arrived, w/ will do
whai our conscience tells us IS right, and
strike fearlessly and zealously for what
we believe to be the best interests of the
state, and the prosperity and happiness of
the people. ,

The animal organs are - precisely

But min has to adjust his powers to an infinite
varietal of exertioser ; ten thousand delicate man-.
'utations and feats of dexterity are required of
him; his eye is to be trained to precision, and his
mind to taste ; new instruments, too are eon
steady to be invented to overcome the eifficalties
in his way. This, then, is the theatre of energy
and patience; yes, and I add ri f 2 inocel - wisdom
and sell-restraint. The anim I may gorge him

or exposure. If be gives himself up to sensual
excess, his powers at once begin to fail him.—
His eyes loses its clearness, his finger its nicety
of Wash ; and he becomes a lame, deficient
and dishonored workman.
Nor is this all. How many natural ties are
there between even the humblest scene of lobo:Mr,
and the noblest affections of humanity ! In this
view the employment of mere muscular strength
is ennobled. There is a central point in every
man's life, around which all his toils and cares
revolve. It is that spot which is cpnieerated by
names of wife, and children, and ,home. A se:
cret, an almost imperceptible influence from that,
spot, which is like other on earth, steals into
the breed of the virtuous laboring man, and
tersegthens every weary atop of his toil.. Every
blow that is struck in the workshorkand the
finds in echo in that holy shrine of his affections.
If he who fights to protect his home, iises to the
point of heroic virtue; no less may he who labors,
his life long, to provide for that home.—
Peace be within those domestic walls, and pros.
parity beneath those humble roofs But should
it aver be otherwise ;.should the time ever came
when the invader's step approatbes to touch those
sacred jthresholds, Isee in the labourers that are
taken for them too ; I see in every honest work
man around me, a hero.
So material do I deem this point—the true
nobility of labor, 1 mean—that 1 would dwell
upon it a moment longer, and in a larger view.—
Why,then, in the_ great Peale of things is labor
ordained for us T Easily, had it so pleased the
great Ordainer, might it have been dispensed
with. The world itself might have been a mighty
machinery for the production of all that man
wants. The motion . of the globe upon its axis
might have been the power, to move that world
of machinery. Tea thousand wheels within
vrlteett might have been at work ; ten thousand
•processes, more curious and complicated than
man can devise, might have been going forward
without man's aid ; houses might have risen like
an exhaltation, •
with the sound
Of dulcet symphonies and voices sweet,
Built like a temple ;
gorgeous furniture might have been placed in
them, and sett conches and luxurious banquets
spread, by hands Sinner ; and man, clothed with
fabrics of nature's weaving, richer . than imperial
purple, might have been sent to disport himself in
these Elysian palaces. "Fair scene ! "
ins you are as , “fortunate for us, had it been
the scene ordained for human life :" But where
thcn r tell me, bad been batman energy, perseVere
anee, patience, virtue,. heroism ? Cut off with
one 010 v fr o m the world; and mankind had sunk
to a crowd, nay. &r beneath a crowd of Aramaic
voluptuaries. No, it had been fortunate.—Better
that the earth "c given to a man is a dark mass,
whereon to labour. -Better that rude and unsight
ly materials be provided in the ore bed and The
forest, for him to fashipn into splendor and beau
ty: Better. I my, notbccause of that splendour
entibmady, but because the act creating them is
better then the things themselves ; because exer
tion is nobler than enjoyment; because the labor
er is greater and more worthy of honor than the
idler. I call upon those whom I address, to.tand
up for the nobility of labor.—lt is heaven's great
ordinance for human improvement. Let not
that great ordinance be broken down. What do
I say It is broken down ; and it has ileen
broken'down for ages. Let it then be- built up
again ; here, it any where, on these shores of a
new world, of a new civi lization. But how it
may be asked, is it brokeh down ? Do not men
toil, it may be said. They do indeed toil, hot
they too generally do it because they must. Sub.
m it t o it as, in some sort, a degrading necessity ;
and they desire nothing so.much on earth, as to
escape from it. They fulfil the treat law of la.
hour in the letter,-bat break it in the spirit; ram
it with the muscle, but break it in the mind.
To some field of labor, mental or manual, every
idler should fasten, as a chosen and coveted
theatre of improvement.—But yim he is not im
pelled to do, under the teachings of our imper
fect civilization. On the contrary, he sits down s
folds his hands, and blesses himself in idleness:
This way of thinking is the heritage of the ab
sorb and unjust modal system ; under which
serfs labored, and gentlemen spent their lives in
fighting and feasting. It is time that this
opprobrium of toil were done away. Ashamed
to toil, art thou ? Ashamed of the dingy work
shop and dusty - labor-field; of thy soiled and
I weather-stained- garmenti, on which mother na
tare has embroidered, midst son and rain, midst
fire and steam, her own 'heraldic honors ?
shamed of these tokens& tttles and envionsof the
flaunting robes of imbecile idleness and vanity?
It is a treason to nature ; it is impiety to heaven;
it is breaking heaven's great ordinance. Toil, I
repeat—Toil either of the ' brain, of the heart, or
of the hadd, is the only true manhood, is theonly
true nobility. .
