RELIOION.—Wo believe in-religion, but
have little respect for those whp merely
profess it, and prate about it. A long face
we always look upon as a mask, and gen
erally fear the character it conceals or dis
petual"hymn ofpraisc"—and we hare gen
erally found that men who possess honest
hearts never boast of their honesty. niul
those who really reverence God seldom
take his name upon their lips. Those
Who !trite their fellow meti, spend their time
and means in quietly and privately doing
them good, and not in making long pray
ers fur the heathen. We have no faith in
the piety of landlords, who eject poor ten
ants that cannot_payon rent -day, and send
poor devils to kid fOT debt. Religion is
deep reverence for God, and respect for all
his creatures ; it never oppresses the poor
wit-never envies the rich ; it can worship
the Creator as devoutly in the green fields,
as in the temples made with hands. It
looks upon the gloriousstars of night with
a holier devotion than upon the eves of
painual saints; and regards the whole uni
verse as but the transparent veil of God.—
The true religious man lives in a state of
unconscious prayer—when troubled and
sad he prays for rest, and when happy ho
asks'lpr gratitude and humility.

The Vermont Patriot, under the head
of "Rising in the 'World," - has the sohjoin
ed remarks which contain some..ttsiii.hig
truths, which we commend to the attentive
perusal of our readers: •
"We saw it stated the other day, thit a
member of Congress, from Tennessee, was
formerly a Tailor, and the lnference to be
drawn from the statement was, that he had
risen from a, Tailor to a member of Con
gress!. - strikeis us that all such talk is
excessively deleteritnic to our republican
society. The result of it is to teach me
chanics that they areainferior to those who
get their living by their and-that 'hr
order to rise in the world they must aban
dOn their business and seek their bread in
some of the fashionable professions. The
4ruth of it is, however, that although the
learned professions are necessary, yet the
prdifuter; thdlneChhtiie, the great laboring
class must of necessity stand first and fore
most in the order of Worldly things. Now
pray, show . us a worthier man than your
Tailor, or your Shoemaker, or your Black-
smith, who labors honestly through the day
in his vocation, doing like a man, what he
finds to do—what, in the matter of making
clothes, patching boots or shoeing horses,
'it is necessary should he done. Can this
man rise from his business to any other
that he may follow,rui 3411erC means of get

medical profession, your divinity , proles-

of a living, to make bread and money out
of, what better are they; what higher are
they than your profession of Coat-mending, '
your profession of !torsi-shoeing, or your
profession of Shoe-making? Talk about
a thrifty, honorable mechanic riming to a
half-Starved pettifogger, whom society calls
a lawyer, or to a spiritual blind guide of a
divine, or to a maker of rotten-wood pills,
called a physician—bah ! rising!
We are no preacher of agrarianism.—
The learned professions are all right, prop
er and useful and necessary ; but whatgood
is to be, nay, whiit evil is not, accomplished

of the learned professions! Is it not bet

are also necessary, and don it is the man

l'he true aristocrats of the country are
the producers. It would be better, per
haps, if There were not so many who live
upon other people's productions. But a
class of this kind we must have, and so
long as the producers.feed them it is well
to allow the matter to pass without making
much trouble about it. There is a portion
of our population who understand their po
sition. They perform their requisite labor,
in their business, arc contented, happy and

and branch, of this most miserable class.
'ahoy are not fit to live. There is no such
thing as rising; except in honor and worth.
A man may commence life-filing saws.—
He files his saws faithfully. He is.a tem
perate, honest and worthy man, so much
so as it is possible forhim to be. By-ind

things than saws ; and farther on; bypend
itirWith files he learns to make with tiles,

and his friends, to show their respect for
him,send him to the Legislature, to Con

rising from a saw-filer to a member of Con-:
gress! Simply, his sphere of usefulness
was extended, and by just as much as he
lis leSs proud, more humble, more honest
and faithful, is he exalted, has he risen, and
no more. If people knew more of what
they call rising, they would give it another
name. Honnuany a man who has risen
to what the world calls the highest stations,
looks hack froM the topmost round, and
sees, that, so far as all the essentials oh
manhood are concerned, every step up has .
has been two steps down, and who would
not give all his high honors, if it were pus
sible for hint to rise to his old station of
saw filer.
It were better for us all to understand
this matter of profession and stations; to
know and believe that the man dignifies
the station, and not the station the man;

Shame on you—if ye now refuse
The sympathy he needs!
On the third day after his departure from
Vienna, a ,horse-deader alighted at an inn
situated at- the entranee of a little town,
which, to alt appearance, was respectable
and quiet. Ile recommended his liorse to
the care of the landlord, dried his clothes at
the fire; - and, - aw - Hooves supper - was
ready, sat down to the table with the heat
and his family, who appeared to be decent
people. •
During supper the traveller was asked
where he came froM, and on his answering
from V iCtlall,•they were all anxious to hear
some news from the capital. The horse
dealer told them all he knew. The land
lord askpd him what business had taken
him to Vienna, to which' he toplied That he
had been there to sell some of the very fi
nest horses that had ever appeared in the
market there.
At these words the landlord rooked 'very
significantly at the young man who sat op
posite hint, and who appeared to be his
son. His expreseiveglance did not escape
the observation of the traveller, who,,how
ever, took no notice Oil ;
_yet ho very soon
afterward had cause to regret his want of
caution. Being in want of repose, he beg
ged the landlord aft soon as the supper was
finished, to show him to his room. The
landlord took a lamp and conducted the
traveller across a yard, into a detached buil
ding, which, cciutained two tolerably neat
rooms.. A tied was prepared at the farther'
end of the second.
As soon as the landlord had retired, the
traveller undressed himself, unbuckled a
a money-belt containing a considerable sum
of gold, and took out his.pocket-book i which
was full of Austrian hank notes, .
Having convinced himself that his mon
ey was right, he placed untles,hispik
low extinguished the light, and soon .fell it-,
sleep, thanking God, and all the saints, fpir
the success of his journey. lie had slept,
but, an hour or two when he was suddenly
awitketted by the opening of .the, wiodow
and intinediatily,fell the night air blow up
on him. • ' ,
Startled at this unforpaien circumstance,
the traveller raised himself up in bed,. and
perceived the head and shoulders of it man,
who was struggling to get into thir ittoin ;
at the same time he heard - the voitea
several persons who were stinking under
the window. • • i"
A dreadful terror seized our traveller,
who gave himself up for .lost; and sea - tee;
ly knowing What he did, crept. under the
bed as quickly as possible. A moment MI;
terwands a man sprang heavily into the
room, and staggered up to the bed, suPpor
dog himself against the Wa11. , • -
Confounded as the horair-ilealet, was, he .
nevertheless peri;eived that the intruder was
inebriatedohia circumstance however gave
lain little •hope; for he had probably got in
toxicated in order to summon up courage
for the contemplated crime; besides this the
traveller had heard the voices of persons
outside, so that the murderer, in case of re
sistance, could count upon the assistance of
his comrades.
But how great was his astonishment
when lie saw the unknown person throw
his coat upon the floor, and stretch himself
upon the bed which he had juat quitted !
A few montents afterwards he heard the in
truder snore and hi's term' began gradual

Everythl mg now quiet, the trasel

Thferwas neither from repentance nor

him speak. There was some Trouble in

were thenhound, and led to the out-houie,
where the hOrrible deed had ban commit
tedrontions to see how the enigma would
be solved.
The prisoners appeared tolerably col

,on entering the room, they perceived the
body which lay on the bed, the son fell
senseless to the earth, and the fither, thieve

Nor do we need to add, that thiontir

and that the horse-doater,Athough saved
