The cold charily of the World.—The
following narati re of sufferings expeiien
ced by a little toy is but one out or the
thousands that might be recorded. The
chatity of a family was appealed to, for
something to eat, by a boy about 13 years
old. who tohl his story as fullow:4
He formerly resided in New B !Hord
iwithhis mother, his falter hiving died
soma years ago; about three moothi since
death also deprivcd him of this his last
may, and he was thrown upon a cold and
heartless world to get his living, as he best
could. Fur slime time he supported him -
self by begging a•td obni.ied a tem'
Wary shelter in a hotel where he did a
lit e° of every kind of work. At length he
-concluded-to go to his sister, the only rel.
ativeleft to him in the world; she resides
in Newburypirt, and he accordingly star-
ted off on foot. During Thursday night
he walked from New Bedford to Taunton,
there some humane individual permitted
him to ride as far as Bt idgewater, from
which place he again resumed walking
MOB he reached this city.
Re also stated that he went to a ferry in
this city, but that the ferryman refused to
take him on board because he could not
pay the ferryage, four cents !
..*)Llarge 'plate profusely filed with eats•
hies, was accordingly set before him; these
hedergured with an avidity which plain
ly proved. that the story of his being bun
' gry . was not fegried. Hiving satitfied
himself, he' stated that he had called at
aims other houses and was turned away
from every one;some threatening him with
personal chastisement, and others with
threats to have him arrested for begging!
This is the charity of the world ! Pen

they are demanded publicly so to do, but

Candidates for office.
The rapacity of the whig and anti•mas
sonic expectants of office is truly aston.
ishing. Some of them appear to spend
their whole time in the rotunda of the
Court House, and perhaps sleep as well
eat there, for the purpose of shaking hands
with men, who, under other circumstances
and at other times they would pass by in
silence. Among the most prominent of
these men, is one narneo Woods, who is
workitig hard for the Pt othonotary's office,
I am told he playa quite a cunning game,
prolesling to be a whig when among Whigs,
and vice versa when among anti•masons
telling the former that he attended as a
delegwe at the late antimasonic conven•
tion with a view of preventing any organ•
iz ttion of that party, while on the other
hand he soaps the anti-masons with the
story of his going there to cut clear of
Clay whit gerry,—at one one time pledg
ing himself and his influence to the whig
candidate fur aheriff and at another to the
antimasonic, and finally and at last prop°
sing, in cAse.all these schemes should fail
him to go &dyers wit h nne of his opponents
in the profits of the office, telling hint at
the same time that he (his opponent) had
hurt himself prodigiously by publishing.
some years ago a book of secrets of odd
fellowship ! !
Now, if after all this trouble and pains,
this man should be disappointed, it will be
a great pity indeed, and the community
will certainly not be treating him well, es
pecially when he manifests so great a des
sire to serve thern,he may indeed say•" Re.

At a man meeting of the Workingmen held at
the Court House in the city of Pittsburgh, May 3d
1843, for the purpose of receiving a report prepa

Birmingham, and Thomas O'Brien of the city of
Pittsburgh, act as Vice Presidents.

first ward of Allegheny city, and Matthew Mein.

On motion, Resolved, That the report of the
Committee be read, which was dune by John Fur
ral i.i an audible and emphatic mantle'.
Your committee, appointed at the public meeting
hull on the Bth of March, in the New Collet House
fur the increase and dissemination of useful know
ledge among the Workingmen of Allegheny co..
and to adopt means which will secure them an ef•
scent representation and support of their interests
in State and National legislation, request your at
tention to the result of then deliberations.
Your committee believe that the objects by you
submitted to their attention, arc of the greatest
importance to society, because the vast interests of
the useful classes, or workingmen. will be promo
ted by their adoption. The param runt evil aim
cicty as coal-organised, conaiets in the giving to
capital an interest hastile to labor. Capital, the
creature of useful labor, by the unjust usages of
society is made to be the unnatural and deadly en•
emy of its creator; as it increases in amount, its
pluedering depredations on the laborieg classes
are increased, and will. and must increiteri in ra
pacity, while capital ma abstracted from its real
owner, the toiling weelth producer, and held by a
non-producing class termed capitalists. To ac
compli,h with facility and safety, the spoilatien of
the working or useful classes, many fraudulent
schemes have been contrived and executed most
audaciously; even the legislature has been made
and is accessory to swindling in the most attro
cious manner, that deep laid cunning can devise.
Banks, with privilege to emit a currency of paper
protniaca, or bills of credit, have been unconstitu
t ovally chartered by state legislation, with ex
emption from personal liabil ty for the debts by
them contracted, while at the same time their bu•
sines? operations tempt them to excessive trading,
because their gain by usury is increased in pro.
portion as they become indebted. This nefarious
practice of legal exemption from the payment of
debts contracted by chartered business corpora
tion., ',creed a the system of legislative grants of
special privileges for business purposes, while the
i p irt'ce thereto impudently affirm, their intention
in granting and receiving such power, is solely,
to benefit the WORICIXO people;"measures should be
taken to have all laws vepesied that• grant special
immunities or priviteges ;as all such laws are (min
ded on injustice, they stimulate to wrong doing
and are destructive of equality .
Your committee would earnestly recommend a
sharp-sighted and sleepless attention to the alrea
i dy dangerous and rapidly increasing inequality of
social condit oil that is fast demoralising our coun.
i try; the peolific source ;•1 which to special legisla

all times i immoral and unjust prectioe of usury.—
To secure to the human family the unalienable
rights of life and liberty, society sliodtd be a uni
ted body, each ot its members having an atoll
interest therein seal equal duties to fulfil; as it is
constructed, ell the non•producing classes prey
upon the producing class, and duns° on, discord
and fraud reign paramount. This rion-producers

I themselves of the surplus wealth produced by the
toiling million., whose se ,nly wages doled out in
return for their exeirealve drudgery is rated merely
for subsistence; while their mrcumstaners compel
them to ask leave to toil that others may enjoy tee
fruits of their hard labor. Thus while baying la
bor cheap to sell it dear wrests from the woi king
m•n the wealth produced by his intiustry. the pro
cess of sceotruletion renders torpid these best
feelings of humanity. generosity, benevulence and
; . .
pewee, and builds up the money-grab clam, whose
eels ence wars unceasingly upon equity and is in
deadly hostility to liberty and equality. The
gross injustice as yet always presented by the es
tablished administration of property in this corm•
try, as in every other. while it treads honor, Ml
-1 esty and intellect in the dust, its deadly effects pro
claim. the necessity of its being amended or else
abolished, because it produces sordid care and con
demo the useful classes to abject drudgery. Op
pression, injustice and servility, these are the im.
mediate growth of excessive Individual and asso
ciated wealth, while insolence and envy, hatred
and revenge, spring forth and are incorporated
therewith. A rational and just system of seciety,
would carefully secure to all its members the best
education attainable physically and intellectually,
and all times. Opportunity and right to labor
would be amply provided. Thus would mind be
delivered from her perpetual anxiety about corpo
real support, and left free to expatiate in the field
of thought. while the narrow principle of ignorant
selfishness would vanish. At present, the best
portion of the human family have their minds be
numbed with unremitted drudgery, and are but
little moreexcited to any regular eeert'ons of cu.
thous thoughts, than the brutes themselves.
Your committee are of opinion that well organ.
izrd associations with libraries seleeted for mental
I improvements, are necessary to the ultimate suc
cent of the project contempleted in the resolutions
1 adopted at your last meeting. Weekly meetings
of the associations shOuld be held in our public
[ School houses or such places as may he most con
venient for the members to attend, These meet
ings, if properly sustained, will add materially in
the acquirement and dissemination ofuseful knowl•
edge, the lack of which is daily becoming more
1 apparent to the toiling millions themselves. The
system of unceasing toil from sunrise to sunset,
cannot be tun much deprecated and abhorred, be
eauic of the monstrous obstructions by it placed in
the way of all subjected to its baleful influences
while striving to push onward in the acquisition
of useful knowledge. This debasing and degrad
ing system of labor must be cha iged; time ample
and sufficient for improvement, both mental and
moral, should be the paramount object dell the
friends of human praying; and ere the working
mon can duly appreciate his melees to the com
mon good, and elevate himself to his proper stand
ing as a useful me-ober of the human family, he
must reduce the hours of his daily toil, to accom•
plish which, nothing that human good demands
should be left untried.

not only the duty and necessity to labor at wealth

name of wages any thing less than a WI equiva

of human labor while ad - exists, therefore justice
demands from each individual of sound mind and

Your Committee therefore suggest that speed Iy
as possible the associations should commence a
regular series of weekly instruction, comprising
select readings, lecture., and discussions on the
rights and duties of man and political science; par
ticipation in debate tree to all without distinction
of class, sect or party. A well conducted news
paper devoted to the advocacy and defence of Wor
kingmen's interests, would be of incalculable
benefit as an expositor triplet opinions, an r' as an
organ of corarsunieation fur concerted or simulta
neous action of the assucia.ted workingmen, and
also as a medium flit discussing new views,
having for their object human happiness. Month!) ,
meetings for admission of members and exami
nation of projects for future action. should be set
apart, and each Rockily or association should elect
delegates to meet in convention to devise ilia
most effective and harmonious ways and me•sns,
while pushing onward the cause of reform and ais.
quiring useful knowledge; without which oo peo
ple can be free, and with which none can be
slaves. Reforms, national, State and individual,
begin with the Farmers, Mechanics and Work
ingmen themselves. At their fire sides and in
their primary meetings they must operate to car.
ry cut th I principle of progress. The just inter.
eats of the female portion of the useful classes
must be embraced in every true plan of a meioras
lion or removal of put.lic evils, nor should the
most strenuous efforts for union and progress be
abandoned until equality of labor will secure
equality of enjoyment. Any thing short of this
leaves the "Declaration of Independence" put
forth in '76 unworked out. Up to this hour the
self evident truths embodied therein presents but
a beautiful theory, a theory which must be made
a fact by the useful classes when they fully un
derstand and truly appreciate those truths which
cannot be gainsayed, "That all men arc created
cqual,that they are endowed by their Creator with
certain unalienable tights; that among these are
life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. That
to secure their rights, governmects aro instituted
among men, deriving their just powers from the
consent of the governed; that whenever any form
of government becomes destructive of these ends,
it it the right of the people to alter or to abolish
it, and to metituto a new government, laying its
foundation on such principles, and organizing its
powers in such form as to them shall seem most
likely to effect their safety and happiness.
The great nacre, of separation from Britain's
unjust system and art of g ,verninent, defined the
basis of just government and enumerated the cau
ses which coerced the colonies into resistance and
forcible repudiation. In it the natural equality of
all men stands prominent'y forward and of a truth
thus proclaimed in the outset of the movement, to
carry it out in practice mu•t have been the mitten..
lion of its author, the immortal Jefferson. Ota
form of government has been changed in confer
mity with the letter ..f tic Declaration of Inde
pendence, but Britain's old system of society, by
which the many are h••li in serfdom by the few,
even her very tars, a:tooted for kingly and feudal
purpoees, are to this lime laws of Pennsylvania,
and her matured system for spoilatios labor, has
been aggravated by privileged legislation here, to
an extent that would imperil the fie early mine
inter of governmeat in England by impeachment.
To your committee it appears the time is rapid
ly approaching when the present puncture of so
ciety must be investigated, sod whatever is found
therein either wrong in principle or unjust in Frac.
tics carefully remo• ed: political and social equal
ity of condition must be secured, ere life, liberty,
and the pursuit possession of happiness, are
provided for. At this hour, the useful classes, the
toiling millions in elem.( every country c .lled civ
&Led, are moving in the great work of progress
and uplieaeing, gradually hut surely, the rotten
fabrics of their governments. The present con
dition °COW po,mlntion, the istm-producers,
and the producers poor, is the most powerful libel
on our system of government called fre ; either
we have never kricwn our duty as men and citi
tens, or never attempted it, hecau-e here if . wrong

is in our town ham da. %%e should at least look
cur own circuits minces in the face, and take our
own business in han-is, firmly resolved to do no

digest every scheme presented by cat•italtsts for
our acceptance, their interest is not ours; and we
cannot be too cautious or circumspect in permit
ting their experiments to be tried. WSen we fn'.
ly understand that whatever makes the ri,;t) richer,
must necessarily make the toor poorsr, ate will
then understand that OW only safety and security
corusists in the united action of the working class
les. By increased intelligence only can you hope
to consummate the great object of your m eting
this day, therefore you can submit fur your con
sideration, the following:
Resolved, That as workingmen we will take a
deeper interest in our own affairs than we have
heretofore done, and do all in our power to have
our interests represented by men on whom we
can rely.
Resolved, That we have no confidence in either
of the pdlitical parties which now exist, and we
would recommend to all our fellow laborers, if
*they midi to be well served, to serve themselves.'
Resolved, That we have ample talent among
the farming and producing classes to fill any office
in a tree government, and to them we will look
fur a choice of candidates.
Resolved, That the practice of giving the pub
lic officers enormous salaries for the purpose of
adding to the magnificence of the government, is
a relict of Feudalism, and directly hostile to dens'.
(meatier principles.
Resolved, That the public officers should be the
people's servant., and as the servant is not above
his master, tlierefore their daily compensation
should not e.ceed the highest price paid for a
day's labor. and the pay of th • public servants
should be uniform, and the payment shell be ir.
proportion to their utility.
Resolved, That man by nature is a rational and
social being, and that state of things which com
pels him to toil so incessantly as to altogether
preclude m iral improvement and social inter•
course, is subversive of the design of his creator I
and destructive to human happiness.
Resolved,That a day's labor eh uld never ex
ceed ten hours, and any employer requiring per•
sons in his employ to work for a longer period
per day, is an enemy to his race and unworthy
the Confidence or respect of his felloa —men.
Resolved, That banking as it now exi-ts, is a
most iniquitous system, and exceedingly oppres
sive to the prodUcing classes, therefore, as soon as
possible it should be abolished.
Resolved, That the granting of chartered privi
!igen tend to the subversion of equal rights, there—
fore, such grants should never be given.
Resolved, That granting special iminun'ties to
individuals or classes is utterly wrong, hence all
good citizens should hive a tight to practice law,
physic, &c.
Resolved, That duties upon imported golds
should be levied to an extent sufficient to meet the
expenses of the general government, and to pros
test our own industry from suffering by competis
tion with the temper labor of Europe.
Resolved, That the governmental expenses of
the States should be met by a system of direct
progressive taxation upon surplus wealth, and
commencing to be levied upon individuals pos
