PITTSBURGH, FRIDAY. AUGUST
Assoctmlnii—A writer in the Nov York Sun,
spealag of the Owen and Fourier systems of _Associa
tion, any that they should not be confounded, for they
are as wide apart as two YIorCIM3 can be, and it is not
in accordance with a spirit of justice and impartiality
to cbuirge upon one Set of views or one plan of reform
the errors or mishaps of another. In the system of
Fourier; individual property is nitintainoi, and the
means Of acquiring it emended ton. 11; equal opportuni
ties ofiditeation are guaranteed to all children, and the
rightfrof lebor. or constant employment, together with
witha. free choice of occupation and the profits of in
dostrf, is secured to every individual. The sacred
aka:it - cif Religion, and the family union or tie are sa
credly,eospe4ed, and individual liberty and indepen
denco filly preserved.
Titereat objection to the Owen system, and the
only objection; that will always prevent it front suc
ceeding—is the principle of a community of goods, and
the disregard evinced for the principles of nal gion
So km as adifferenceinthe capacities of individual ett
ist, be impossible to pro serve harmony in an as
sociation where the industrious and skillful receive nn
greater reward than the indolent and incompetent; and
withset the humwizing. influence of religion, neither in
dividuals or communities can prosper. This 'has been
illustrated in the many abortive attempts to establish
Associations on the Owen syste.ny, on the other hand,
the perfect practicability of associated labor, when free
froni the objections above stated has been proven by
the Clccess of the Ais I,;iatiun.i that rejected the level
ingp riuciples of Mr. °well's plan.

comply with the repeated requests made by the mili

The activity ofbusiness has not yet occasioned any in

The celebrated JOHN SCHAFFER, the subduer of Jones Jacob C
the savage denizens of the forest, will appear in a most
magnificent series of scenes entitled "The dreadful
doom of the Sultan's slave." Among a variety of thril
ling situations, the following will be exhibited:—The
outcast slave banished to the forest of Faihri, expiring
from hunger and fatigue; when a fierce Brazilian Tiger
darts like lightning upon him from an upper cavern. .
The Eastern despot's most awful sentence ! ! For
feited life spared on condition of training a wild lion to
harness, which is accomplished, and the slave rides
across the road in an ancient car.
Also, a variety of other beautiful and striking situa
tions will be presented during the progress of the piec e,
to conclude with the most bold, grand and darinr , ' hu
man display presented among a whole caravan of wild
animals let loose at the same time, upon the Indian
Slave, who will gradually subdue, and playfully exhibit
his remarkable skill in elegantly grouping the match
less zoological exhibition.
