Subject—THE LAW OF SUCCESS.
(coNota - uno.)
Look around where :our race are now jost
ling each other in the stern conflict of life.
This one most buoyant_ with hope and most
confident of success, stumbles and falls,
while those around him heedless of his dis
comfiture, trample over and. upon him, and
confidence and hope and life go out together.
That one, with doubts and fears, but with
a trusting forecast, plods and delves on with
tireless and never flinching energy, resolved
that though failure should overwhelm him,
even then the purpose is riot abandoned, the
will does - not alter until in the last struggle
for victory he sinks in the battle of life.—
But does he sinkl—A. moment he may be hid
den from sight, yet he rises again and min
gles in the strife, that iron will unchanged he
has willed success and he cannot fail to se
cure it, if the mortal man does not fail ere
the triumph is complete. The wonderful
Corsican said "God was with the heavy bat
talionS." This was his opinion as •to what
law matured success in the fierce encounter
of arms ; and the law which rules that issue
is the same in everything. The use of the
means is the only law of success.
The use of-the means is the law of suo
cess, is-an expression which at first thought
might be said to be tautalogical. Yet a mo
ment's reflection will make apparent my
meaning. Hercules answered the carter's
prayer for help by telling him, that "to whip
his horse and put his shoulder to the wheel
was the only way to secure assistance."
Mark and remember well the force of this
lesson. It is the use of the means which "se
cures assistance." There is no allegation
that those.means alone would move the over
loaded cart from the mud. It is rather a dee
- laration, that he who would secure tlae help
of other's must exhibit a determination to
use all the means within his power, and that ,
thus not only help but is Secured.
The Teacher has la destiny to fulfil, and
that destiny may be useful, even glorious-, or
it may be common place, heedless, and ray
less, bearing no trace of light or truth in his
,pathway, . ,
'The successful School Teacher, leaves on
earth as the lasting memorials of his labors a
thousand pilgrim spirits who have been led
by . him thrOugh_the slough of despond which
everywhere dishearten the humble student
in his progress to that pleasant land the Bu

The Present Attitude of the Denlocra-
There has never been a period in the his
tory of the democratic party when it has
presented a more gratifying spectacle to the
country than at this moment. In no quarter
has it coalesced with any of the isms of the
day. In the free States it' nobly contends
against the twin-organizations of abolition
ists and know-nothings. In the South it as
nobly resists the combinations of whigs and
know nothings. In Virginia its champions
are active and constant in their exertions,
scorning all compromises with proscription.
In New Hampshire the war agaieist the uni
ted fanaticisms is resolute and irresistible.—
We gather material for profitable reflection
from such a review. if is something' o see a
party that can afford to stand out against a
prevalent popular majority, to encounter all
the dangers of defeat, and to prefer years of
minority to a single hour of craven submis
sion to an unjust and dominant prejudice.- 7
But there are other lessons taught by this ex.:
hibition or fortitude and firmness in support
of high principles. One is, that eho best.
way to oppo , e a fanaticism is to do it boldly
and perseveringly. The slightest concession
to the bank oligarchy, during the adminis
tration•oi Jackson, by the man:who then held
the reins of federal power, would have de-
Stroyed the whole moral of the democratic
party during that memorable struggle. Had
that party yielded for a moment _to the clam
or of the opposition in 1840, its defeat would
have been more -disastrous, inasmuch as it
then must have lost its honor. There never
was a more plausible and dangerous move
merit' than the protective movement. 'and
yet it was only by boldly resisting with the
weapons of free trade that it lost its prestige.
Not less deceptive was the combination
a.gaints the independent treasury; and yet the
democracy blanched not . in the face of the
tempest, but adhere to the right until they
rescued that great safe-guard of trade, and
re-establish it on firmer ground than ever.—
And where, at this moment, is there any I ar
ty, or any body of men, in the free States, to
repel and to expose the designs of abolition
ism but the democratic party ? This is, in
deed, a-severe to the constitutioaal citi- -
zens of the North, arid chiefly because, while
they are struggling against the enemies of
the rights of the South, there is a body of
southern men so forgetful of the ordinary in
stincts of gratitude for gallant and disinter
ested friendship as to unite with the very
foes whom the democracy resist for the sake
of the South 1 - But this circumstance, dis
graceful-as it is to whigs in the southern
States, does not weaken the energies or less
en the efforts of the northern democratic par
ty in defence of the rights of the States.
And so ir, regard to the' neer idea that has
crept into our politics—the idea of secret pro
scription and public disfianchisement. The
manly, above-board, and unequivocal opposi
tion which the democratic party has made,
and is now making, upon this rampant con
spiracy, will be the greenest arid the most
enduring laurel in the garland that commem
orates its - victorious progress. Men will
pause in a career of mere passion: when they
- see the democracy unawed by majorities and
unsubdued by disaster. They Will ion beer
- the record of the democratic party, and will
find that whenever it has done this, it has
been inspired by that prophetic courage which
meets present combinations only the more
completely to deserve future honor and ad
vancement. The - democracy does not war
luded - into these dens of darkness. The broad
truths which it : opposes to the - mere phan
tasrris of worn-out hackS- are internled not
alone to animateeits . :oWn rank and file, but
to Coniert, to recall, and to protect, all , men
who may be iq the, new crusade, - or . may - be
disposed to embrace it. Ti all democrats so
situated, and to all liberal whigs, this attitude
of the democratic organization iso full of ad
monition and of dignity. -• :
The, entire mass of the rsecret party is ani
mated with the soul of the worst. type r of fed
erelism. The serpent has cast his skin, but
still remains the same serpent. If eit this mr:=
ment, the adrninistration * were to adopt and
act upon the entire code of Whig
this would not conciliate . the leaders of the
-. know nothings; They would go to the Pens
and vote.aganist it to a man. Without neu
tralizing a single enemy, they would alienate
all their friends, and, in graspitig at a shad
ow, Joae the . substance fdrever., It is our du
ty, therefore, to give it to them hip and thigh;
to hold them at aims-length, and: 'shake the
dry bones of this poi tentous skeleton till they
rattle_ like dice 7 boxes. Half measures are
,always bad, and, wiir§t of all, ' such a cri
sis as the present. The tree democracy of.
the good old school must fight it out.. They
should descend to no compromises, no trea
ties, no bargains, noeebnceSsibris, - - If they
are beaten, itwill be.only like the Americans
in .the revolution, to attack the enemy int,
mediately after; and if they. conquer, they
may then magnanimously concede to' the,
know-nothings, as a favor, 'what theS-':now
demand as a, right. The democracy -have no
other ground un which to fig,.l4 their battles

To lire Editor of Huntiztsdorz. Globe.
ant,—Agreeably with a resolution adopted
at a meeting of the Board of Manegers at
the American 'and Foreigh Emigrant Protec
tive and Employment Society, held onNlon
day the sth inst., Peter Ccioper, Esq.i Presi
dent of the Society, in the chair, the under
signed respectfully request that, through the
medium of your columns, --you will - recom

desire to secu:e the services of the , worthy
portion of 'the unemployed poor of the city
of New York the convening at as early a
period as possible, a public meeting for the
purpose of ascertaining specifically the wants
of the neighborhoodas to labor, and the ap
pointment of a Corresponding Agent who
shall send to the Society orders, accompanied
by accurate descriptions of the persons wan
ted, the name and residence of the employer,
the nature of the situation, the duties to be
performed, the 'qualifications required, 'the
Compensation offered and mode and cost of
conveyance, and who shall (generally act as
a, medium of communication between the
community , he represents and the Society.
The Board of Managers, aware of the dif
ficulties attending the effort to transfer the
surplus,labor of our city to those parts of
the country where it is needed, and thus 'se
cure a mutual benefit, have given the subject
their serious 'attention, and as the result of
their deliberations, propose the following
The Employment Committee, for the time
being, send emigrants and others desirous of
procuring employment, to those who may
apply for their services under one of the fol
Ist. Upon a satisfactory guaranty being
given by the employer that he will -refund to
the Society, or its authorized Agent, the
amount.advanced to defray _ the expense of
transit of the person or persons sent, togeth
er with his annual subscription, two dollars,
immediately on the arrival of the latter at his
• 2d. Upon the required amount being de
posited in the hands • of a responsible third
party, with the understanding that said
amount shall be paid over to the Society or
its Agent, upon file arrival of the person or
3d Upon a written agreement being enter
ed into with the employer, that his employer
shall be allowed to -deduct one-half of his
wages until the .whole of the passage money
shall' have been refunded, and .to pay the
same over to the Society, or its authorized
Agent. A similar agreement shall be enter
ed into for the benefit of the employer, if re
quired, when the emigrant .is forwarded in
accordance with the first or second arrange
ment above named.
In submitting the above plan the Board
desire that it should be : remembered that the
Society is strictly, a benevolent one compo
sed of individuals whose • sole objects is to
accomplish a' ivork that shall-be for the mu
tual good of thd employer and employeoythat,
mainly depending for their ability to carry
out their good intentions upon the contribu
tions of the benevolent, they. are compelled
as much" 'as possible to husband their resour
ces, while, at the same time, they feel not
only the importance but the necessity of pro
tecting the employer, while they labor to
vance the interests of the employee.
On the subject of an early application to

submit the-following remarks found in a re
'cent number of the New York Tribune. .
'•lt is. all-important that those who will
want skilled and unskilled labor throughout
the next season shotild engage - it now - or'very
soon. Early in March, if the ' season he'an
average one, the gardens of Ney Jersey' and
Long Island will begin • their spring work.
and then the'efo*de of robrist men and wo
men who now besiege the Emigrant Office
will rapidly dwindle and - speedily.disappear.
The• farmers from- further inland will come
or send here for laborers, only to find the best
engaged and the - residue asking prices
that-employers" will- consider- exorbitant.
:The.advantage'will then be on their side; it
is now on .yours. It is, not, one day too
for the farmer who means to drive his work
and not be'driven by it,' to hire al-1 the'labor
he will want through the ensuing season.—
We tell him just where it: is to be:Sound:in
great abundance, of varied capacities,, and at
moderate prices. Many who, postpOne
