Strive on—the ocean ne'er wan crossed,
Repining on the shore;
A Nation's Freedom ne'er was won
When Sloth the banner bore.
Strive on—'tin cowardly to shrink
AA hen dangers rise around;
'Ti. 'tweeter far, though linked with pain,
To gain the vantage ground.
Bright names ere on the roll of Fame,
Like stars they shine on high;
They may he hid with brighter ram
But never, never Mel
And these were lighted 'mid the gloom
Of low obscurity;
Struggling through years of pain and toil,
And joyles, poverty.
But strive—this world's not all a waste,
A wilderness of care;
Green spots are on the field of life,
And flowerets blooming fair.
Then strive— but oh ! let Virtue he
The guardian of your aim!
Let pure, unclouded love illume
The path that leads to Fame!
A young Rose in summer time
Is beautiful to me,
And glorious the many stars
That glimmer on the see.
But gentle words and loving hearts
And hands to clasp my own,
Are better than the brightest flowers
Or stars that ever shone.
The run may warm the Grass to life,
The Dew, the drooping flower,
And eyes grow bright and watch the light
Of Autumn's opening hour—
But words !bat breathe of tenderness,
And smiles we know are true,
Are warmer than the summer time,
And brighter than the dew.
It is not much the world con give,
With all it. subtle art,
And Gold or Gems are not the things
To satisfy the Heart:
But oh ! if those who cluster round
The altar and the hearth,
Have gentle words and loving smiles,
How beautilut is earth!
These two evils have sp
solation among the human family, than
all other causes combined. They have
been pregnant with ruin to thousands
upon thousands of our fellow creatures;
and fortunate is he who escapes their
contaminating influences. It is impos
sible to estimate the amount of moral
degradation produced by such destruc
tive and prevailing agencies. The cas
tle of the prince, and the humble house
of the dny laborer have alike been the
scene of their ruinous operations.
Fashionable society has much to an
swer for in the creation of these vices.
The evil examples set by those who are
regarded for their wealth, not worth, has
exercised a pernicious influence upon
the poorer portion of the community,
who are too much disposed to ape the
follies of the great. This is not as it
should be. Because the possessor of
wealth, or of power, sees proper to devi
ate from the strict ine of truth and so
briety, it is, certainly, no valid reason
for the man without money or distinc-1
tion to do so. Vice, though " clothed in
purple," must, at the final day of reck
oning, be held strictly accountable for
all its misdeeds ; and a wicked example
will not be among the least.
Spirited and laudable efforts have
been made for the suppression of intem
perance; and it is a gratifying fact that
this alarming evil is on the decrease.—
But GAMBLING, its t*in brother in deeds
of darkness, has not received that atten
tion from society generally, which its
importance, as an agent of evil, demands.
I Intemperance is frequently the cause of
gambling, but invariably when it is not
the cause, it is the consequence. That
' is, a man may become a drunkard, and
afterwards, probably, a gambler ; but
when the vice of gambling prevails first,
that of drunkenness is sure to follow.
I have seen much of this world, and
have drained the cup of sin to its very
dregs. I have reflected much upon the
ocigin and support of crime as it exists
amongst us; and an experience of 12
years in vicious practices assures me
that I am not mistaken when I charge
the higher classes of society with being
the supporter, if not the originator, of
three-fourths of the moral evils that af
flict the civilized world. This may, to
some, seem a bold charge, but I firmly
believe it to be a true one. Who are
they that countenance and frequent re
sorts of public amusement, the predom
inating features of which are licentious
ness 1 Who are they that suffer to ex
ist among them houses in which mil
lions of their fellow-beings are destroy
ed, both body and soul 1 Who are they
that can remove these foul excrescences
from the fair face of God's earth 1 Who
are they that can work this mighty
change, producing as its blessed result,
the happiness and salvation of myriads'!
To these interrogatories I answer, the
higher or better portions of society.—
What a fearful responsibility rests upon
Many persons are indifferent to the
preValenite of vice, provided it does not
stain their own skirts. They shrug their
shoulders, and care for none but them
selves. They thank their God that they
are not as other men. Their feeling of
brotherhood embraces only their own fa
mily circle and connexions. If they,
their children, and relations, are only
safe from the temptation of sin, their
mission is accomplished—their work is
done; and they quietly fold their arms,
regardless of the tears, the groans, the
agonies of an innumerable number of
their distressed brethren, suffering—aw
fully suffering—from the sting of sin.
They forget that the whole human fami
ly ought to be united together by ties of
parental feeling; that no selfish distinc
tion of self, or kindred, should induce
them to appreciate their own happiness
by the wretchedness of others. Often
does God rebuke them for thus narrow
ing down their sympathies.
As illustrative of the fact, that no
man's offspring can be considered safe
from the allurements of vice, so long as
vice exists, I will relate an incident that
came under my personal knowledge.
In 1837 I was in the company of a
gambler who resided at B—. v e took
passage at W—, in a stage-coach for
that place. There were several other
passengers. My comrade and myself
endeavored to make ourselves as enter
taining as possible to the rest of the
company; by this we designed finding
out the strong features of their charac
ters, and if any proved to be fit victims
for the wiles of the gambler, we would,
when opportunity offered, pounce upon
them. One passenger was so much un
der the influence of liquor that we gave
ap all idea of making any headway with
him. He did not seem to know that he
was drunk : denounced the use of liquor
except for medicinal purposes: said that
he took it solely for the benefit of his
health. It was very evident to the rest
of us that he did not take it in Homeo
pathic doses. With the other passen
gers we were quite unsuccessful in our
attempts to engage them in conversation.
We then conversed together upon vari
ous subjects; but little attention was
paid us, except that the drunken man
would frequently contradict our asser
tions, or affirm the truth of them, just
as his humor pleased. One of the pas
sengers was a venerable looking man.
He appeared to have a great aversion to
card laying, or gambling or intempe
rance. We discovered his distaste for
these horrible vices by a few remarks
made by him. He disapproved of card
playing even for amusement.
I said that "young people must have
amusement, and that none are safe from
vice—all are in danger."
The old gentleman denied the correct
ness of my assertion. He said that "if
children be properly educated, there is
no danger of them becoming gamblers
or drunkards."
I replied that "he was right, if he
meant a religious education, and that
but few had received such—that the
rich and fashionable part of the commu
nity generally, have neither a religious
nor a moral education—that wealth su
percedes the use of morality in the rich
man—that his gold covers a thousand
offences, which, if committed by a poor
man, would procure him the censure of
the world, and the loss of his liberty."
Our conversation ended. IVe reach
ed B-, where I left my companion.
In 184 , 0, I visited 13- again. I went
to a fashionable gambling house in C
street, kept by the gambler of whom I
have spoken. A large game of faro was
being played. The gamblers were very
successful, and consequently in good
spirits. Among the visiters there, I
observed a young man of splendid ap•
peurance, apparently in his twentieth
year. He was accompanied by several
others. He desired the gambler who
kept the establishment, to furnish him
with a basket of Champagne. This was
done. They retired to a private room
to drink it. In the course of an hour,
they got very noisy, so much so, that it
was necessary to get rid of them. The
game was closed, and they passed
through the gambling room, hallooing
at the tops of their voices.
As they left, my gambling friend ask
ed me, "if I knew the young man at
the head of them." I said that "I did
"Do you not recollect," said he, "the
old gentleman who got so offended at you
when you and I were coming over the
mountains in 18371"
I do."
"Do you recollect his argument, that
a rural education is a sure preventive
against vice; that he had but one child
—a son—that the principles of morality
were so instilled into him, that it would
be impossible for him to err ;—that he
apprehended no danger of his becoming
a gambler or drunkard I"
"I do."
"The leader of that band of young
bacchanalians, is the hopeful boy so
highly extolled by his father—and that
father is the person with whom you had
the controversy in the stage."
"Are you not mistaken 2" said I.
"No, I am not," replied he.
I was much surprised at his informa•
tion, and said " how easy it is for a per
son to be mistaken. I thought the old
man was a minister of the gospel."
" So he was," said he.
I then inquired, "if his father knew
he dissipated in this way 1"
"His father has been dead a year, and
his mother about three months. He is
the only child—is quite wealthy, and
withal, a very clever fellow."
"Does lie gamble 1" said I.
" No, not yet ; he only visits the gam.
bling room to take his wine sprees ; but
you know, as well as myself, what will
follow in a short time."
I left B- some few days afterwards,
without seeing or hearing from these
promising youths. In the latter part of
1841, I had occasion to visit B--
again. I met my gambling friend. He
invited me to his apartment for the pur
pose of showing me some changes he
had been making in it. The entrance
to the room was a dark stairway. %% e
went in, but as it was dark, he desired
me to wait at the door until he had open
ed the window shutters. The light was
admitted, when, to my surprise, I found
that I was standing within a few feet of
a man, who appeared to be asleep in an
arm chair.
" Whom have we here 1" said I
" The gambler looked, and with a de
moniac sneer, said "a loafer who in
trudes himself upon the waiters during
my absence. They have looked him up,
rather than drag him down stairs ; but
I intend giving him a lesson that lie will
He then approached the sleeper, whose
clothing, though torn in several places,
plainly showed that he had seen better
" Get up, you vagabond," was the first
intelligence the young man had of our
presence. He awoke, and seeing who
it was that had disturbed him, prepared
to go to sleep again.
" Don't you hear me, my lark 1" bawl
ed the gambler, at the same time uncer•
emonionsly raising the young man to
his feet. " I wish to know what you
are doing in this room 1"
The young man, in a hollow tremulous
voice, said, "oh, is it you,—" calling
the wretch by name. " I suppose the
boys locked me up, as I was on a spree
last night."
" What! you on a spree, you loafing
vagabond. Have you been off one for
the last two years 1"
The young man gave him a look, that
none but a gambler or rumseller's vic
tim could have given. It was a humil
iating, a pitiful, a forsaken look. He
replied in broken accents, "oh! do not
apply to me such horrid epithets." The
big tears rolled down his cheeks ; and
his looks spoke more plainly to the gam
bler than a thousand tongues. " I am
a ruined man !—you are accursed by
God and man, for your evil deeds! You
ruin one man that you may be better
able to ruin another !"
" What do you want to say? you vil
lain !" said the gambler.
"I want to acknowledge," said the
poor wretch., " that I am"—his voice fal
tered—" a loafer. But I was made a
loafer in this cursed room. It was here
I drank my first glass of wine—it was
here I played my first game of cards—
it was here I was stripped of a fortune
of thirty thousand dollars, left me by
my parents. Cold-hearted villains have
it. May God protect the community
from its possessors,—is the prayer offer
ed by a degraded, ruined man." He
then turned to leave the room.
The gambler, with all the force of a
powerful arm, thrust him headlong into
the street. His head struck the curb
stone, and he lay senseless. I ran down,
raised him from the gutter, and discos"
ered the blood flowing freely from a
wound in the forehead. He soon revi
ved, and placed his hand upon his head
as if in pain. I gave him my bandker•
chief, which he refused to take, until I
pressed it upon his bleeding wound.—
He then staggereJ off down the street.
The gambler observed, "that is the
last you will see of your handkerchief—
he will pawn it for liquor before an

•of a barbarian. I replied, " you are a
cruel man."
He laughed, and said when you see
as much of the gambler's life as I have,
you will not think so."
I felt sick at heart at witnessing the
bloody act, and we parted. The next
morning the stiffened corpse of that
same young man was laid upon P—
street wharf. The coroner was holding
an inquest over it. He held my hand
kerchief in his death grasp. The clot
ted blood, mixed with mud, was still
upon his brow. The jury's verdict was
" death produced by intemperance."—l
do not say that the fall, given him by
the gambler, occasioned his premature
death. I leave the reader to judge for
This victim was the son of the fond,
confident parent, who saw no danger in
the dark vista of the future to his only
child—though vice in all its diversified
forms prevailed extensively in the land.
f A beautiful and thrilling speech
was made by Hon. S. S. Prentiss, at a
meeting in New Orleans for the relief
of suffering Ireland, We have room but
for a single paragraph :
"If benevolence be not a sufficient in
centive to action, we should be generous
from common decency; for out of this
famine we arc adding millions to our for
tunes. Every article of food, of which
we have a superabundance, has been
doubled in value, by the very distress
we are now called upon to alleviate.—
We cannot do less, in common honesty,
than to divide among the starving poor
of Ireland a portion of the gains we are
making out of their misfortune. Give,
then, generously and freely. Recollect
that in so doing you are exercising one
of the most
ge od-lik q ualities of your
nature, and at the same time enjoying
one of the greatest luxuries of life. We
ought to thank our Maker that he has
permitted us to exercise equally with
himself that noblest of even the Divine
attributes, benevolence. Go home and
look at your family, smiling in rosy
health, and thenithink of the Dale. fam
ine-pinched cheeks of the poor children
of Ireland; and I know you will give
according to your store, even as a boun
tiful Providence has given to you—not
grudgingly, but with an open hand ; for
for the quality of benevolence, like that
of mercy, . . .
Is not strained,
It drappeth like the gentle rain from heaven.

It blesses him that gives, and him that takes."
The Expenses of the yar.
Though certain it is that the money
which it requires to furnish the sinews

and Philanthropy the smallest item in
its bill of costs, still when Millions upon
Millions of the public Revenues follow
each other down its insatiate maw, and
the cry of the sanguinary monster eon
, tinues to be that of the daughter of the
horse-leech ever "Give Give !" those
who take the practical view of the sub
ject may well become startled at the
rapid expenditure which bloodshed,glory
and conquest involve. The Army Bill
which passed the House last week con
tained appropriations to the amount of
Thirty-four and a Half Millions of Dol
lars, to pay and support our forces in
the field against Mexico—the largest
amount of appropriation ever made in
any bill passed by Congress. Thus this
War with feeble and imbecile Mexico is
drawing more heavily upon our purse
than that which we waged with England
for the Freedom of the Seas and Sailors'
Rights. It is estimated that the expen
ditures authorized by Congress at its
present session will not fall below SlX

A Warm Wish
A poor widow woman was relating to
a neighbor, how fond her husband was
of having a good fire; how busy he
would make himself in fixing it so that
it would burn, &c., " Ab, poor dear
man," said she, " I hope he's gone where
they keep good fires.'
