'T was jest about six weeks ago,
I walked to Snakesville through the snOvr
What took me there I'd like to know?:
'Twas Sunday arternoon—it froze,
The wind blew giles.—l blew my nose s
A hundred times as I suppose!
At length I reached Squire Gubbins' door
I knocked; my heart and feet were sore
"Come in!" I soon was on the floor.
I warmed my face, I warmed my nose;
I warmed my feet, I warmed my toes. '
• 'T was curious that they wasn't froze!
'Bout ten o'clock the fire shone bright;
SAL hid the candles outer sight; !
The Squire, he bid us both '•Good Night."
We sot and both looked at the fire; !
I thought about her dad, the Squire, , i •
And drew my cheer a little nigher.
My heart heat kinder fast I swow I .
Then thinks says I, the time is nott,!:
I'll pop the question anyhow!
I never did the thing before;
' And though the walk bad made them sore,
I piled my knee-jints on the floor.
I spoke and says, stil.,t I: "bear SAL,
You always was ii handsome gal; ! •
Will you be mine? Now sa3,- you shell!'"
She blushed and then looked down at me
And then she gave a low "tee bee."
"Now don't! now do get up," says she:
I did. The logs kept burning bright—
I can't tell how we spent the night,.
But never mind—the thing's all right.

The Forces of Free Labor.
And herein is the overwhelming argu
ment againit the barbarous logic which is
now tilling the press of half our Union and
the Legislative halls of the Republic with'
the assertion that labor belongs to capi
tal, and the slave industry of the Past is
a greater success than the free labor, of
the present. No doubt statistics are
against this theory, but when was a nation
ever ciPhered out of. barbarism ? Loons
advocates pile up their bales of cotien,
their tons of sugar, their rice and; heinp
/ loathsome . tobacco, to the
and exu:tingly cry : This is ours ! But
what has become of the Creative Power of
man meanwhile? Where is your growth
of thai creative energy which lift:tilt. peo
ple ever higher in the scale of humanity ?
Where are ilia inventions, the labor-saving
machinery, the advanced modes of labor;
the improvement of ands; all that bears
witness to the growth of intelligence and
power over. nature ? Your 4,000,tw0 of
laborers are a smaller creative tome in the
world's industry' than many a Nel'Eng
land village. Not even able to use what
the rest of the'world - has invented, -they
plod on, a great black mass of 'brutal toil,
tagging behind the peasantry Of: &rive.
Where has , fled the creative - force Of your
nobler reek? What 'element is the white
laboring class in slave regions, in the in.

cated in the school of a Christian Indus-;

And the'satue logic will scatter to the
winds the affectation of superiority, which
in a free State like ours,. plumes itself - on
the distinction of lazinet 7 s, and thinks gem..
tility only the periogative of the drone.
Could toe young man that saunters the
streets to.forget . the lagging 'hours, and
the maiden that - scorns the severe toil of
body and wind, 'but know *hat they are
doing and becoming thereby, they would
awaken from this dream of folly. For;
tell rue, ia'not true g'entility also true
nobility of character? Is there any genu
ine superiority other than spiritual power
and Worth T. and when you. despise labor
of the hands and mind, 'do you , not re
nounce that chief glory of man, his crea

realm of nature, or think nothing of the
realm of ideas; or mould , no. character -or
shape no social result in there - Am of Hu-
wanity—what are you but
. an . underling,

the back , track towards brutalty and im
potence? Is yOur laziness fraught with
tows to compensate for the abdication of
Our throue of breatiin dominion.? -Are
you Satisfied togravitate towards the ir
rational anituala . for the sake of their pleas
ant sensations and exemption from care ?
Do you shrink from thattrouhle, toil and
anxiety which are the inevitable accom
paniments of all huMan achievements ?
Learn that the utmost of these is only a
penny toll paid; at the gates which open
into new regions of grandeur and loveli
ness; and that he who really underbtands
hituself, quite forgets these in the inspira
tion that burns higher, as he mounts the
steep Ways of Power. Aim to be the best,
if you Will, but show 'us your title in crea
tive toil, superior to any other, before you
expect of us a reception of your claim..
Since Free Labor is valuab.e, chiefly
for its spiritual results on wan, it, will only
be found in its genuine form where man
applies the highest faculties of his nature
to the occupations of his every-day exer
cise. ' Where every citizen puts his whole
soul into his work, and .makes it the ex
pression of-hiri finest conception of manli
ness or womanhood ; where a people writes
out its grandest ideas of truth, and jus-
tice .and grace in the colossal dialect of an
intense and varied industry, then shall we
know what Free Labor can do. Thus we
have only to look' at the productions- of
any country to understa'id how far a lib
eral and elevated idea of work has advanc
ed. ; Anybody could read the whole phi
los.iphy of Chinese art'and life out of the
manufactures of China. In the evidences
of Minute and patient drudgery, the gaw
ky &fins and richness of inatvial display
ed iu their manufactures, we discover the
mart of an
,unprogressive nation, 'where
life r is so cheap that a man's whole exist
ence eau easily be spared to the elabora•
tior(of orie corner of a shawl, or the carv
ing ;on the leg of a table, where with the
richest material and the utmost patience
to Mould them, the same stereotpye fig
tires and , shapes proclaim that generation
after generation is inclosed in a wall of
I self-conceit and slavish routine.. Compare
with this spectacle the industry of the
British islands: and beheld in its ever-eal
parading variety, its constant improvement
in all thy appliances of machinery, its

dence that here man is gradually approach 7

udes.of indtistry., , •
- .The first grand want of our present
system of labor is intelligence. Ignorance
is slairery 'by the inevitable laws of God;
and whoever flatters ignorance anywhere
does it for the purpose of.de .potis.n. Our
labor is not truly free New York, be
cause it is not' sufficiently cultivated.
hile.thousands of farinms are prevented
by . they want' .of.inforination and preju
dice from adopting the myriad , improve
ments ofmodern scientific agriculture, and
other' thousands of our - mechanics and'
operatives know just enough to be tied to
one kind 'of secondary Work all their lives,
and our youtigMen - enter into mercantile
life so ill prepared ;that, seventy 'per cent.-
fail, how' can there be anything but a
practical enslavement of whole regions of
society ? Men and women thus qualified
are always at the mercy of the better in
structed. Beyond a limited circle of plod
ding toil, they are lost, and must word.- as
they are forced bithe few clever people
who organNe the great machinery of labor
and appoint then, their place therein,
They are exposed to' distress in every' ,
great panic and are not able to avail them
selves of times of prosperity.
It is vain for such laboring classes to
'protest against the injustice they suffer.
Nobody disputes that they are practically
shut. up in a narrow place; but how came
they there ? Chiefly because they liave
preferied ignorance to iutelligence. The
State wakes provision for the instruction
of all, and the Means of practical iinprov
ment are open to whomsoever desires
them. But if two hundred thousand
children are kept out of school by the
wickedness 'of their parents, and other,
Hundreds of thousands Of young men and
women prefer the luxury of ignorance,
they are welcome to it ; but they will learn
that it is the most - expensive luxury in
which they can indulge.: No manor wo
man is, too old to learn, no,girl or boy is
too young to be taught, that love for im
provement 'which is the great.emancipa
tor of the laboring wan.
Especially let our youth of both "sexes
resolve to' be generally cultivated, and
whatever they undertake, learn to do in
the best way. • The young laborer in the,
household, in the Shop or ou the land,
who'is informed concerning his' profess
ion as a science, - knows - its central princi
ples, its ,capacities .for improvement, all
its labor-saving machinery and its Fele,'

a power. that will always defend tinr

ing that they have been 'obliged to fight
to gain their money, have so little sense
Of public obligation in its use; and classes
are set, airainst each other , each fully
aware of its ;own sins. -
Of course this dishonesty vitiates all
other profe'sSions ; and the sons and daugh
ters of people that cheat io labor.will give
us a shale instruction in school, a corrupt
legislation in the senate, a literature that

life' are honestly performed,

Thousands of the servant girls and dav
workers who 'this winter will shiver, and
starve have done all they . oceld to brine
on this panic by unfaithful and'dishonest
labor, by extortion and extravagant ex
penditure in prosperous firnes.' There is
untruth-enough in our New: York, labor
yet to , produce a general financial- explo
sion every quarter of a century. - All pro
fessionsure involved-in it; and as a con-,
sequence Free Labor does not exist.
• In proportien.as industry is untrue to]
the:eternal laws of rectitude does it de-'
steed to the enslavement-of Le less eleV:l
er by the more 'clever. ' When we can
'honor each other so much that we regard
every attempt at sham or knavery asp°
unpardonable insult to human nature, we
shall begin to realize that "glorious liber
ty" which'only rectitude confers. AnY
man, whether a sweeper of streets or a
president' of a railroad; - any woman,
whether apook or an artist; who slights
work or wrongs a customer in any. way, is'
to that extent-laboring to enslave the hu
man race; and whoever In the humblest
walk of industry is faithful, is doing his
utmost to emancipate society through the
whole world. /-
A radical referm in - such. particulars
could not fail to be accompanied with an
advance in beauty. Our industry would
take a•more graceful shape; our life _of
toil would be less angular, coarse and un
congenial, and an increased; appreciation
of elegance appropriate to every produe
tion would every where make itself known.
And through - the State a more cheerful
atmosphere and unostentatious loveliness
would mark the groivth of that industrial
freedom which:outss off at once the stolid;
sullen . gloom of the slaVe, and the 'griiff
coarseness of the boor, and Clothes itself
in the natural and graceful deportment ofl
the freeman.. ' -
And this system of, intelligent; honest,
graceful Free Labor would place our peon
pie on a higher spiritual plane of exist
ence ; and it would then be understood,
that, the end of man is not "bread alone,"
but:manhood in its greatest sense. Then,
the folly'that toil is degrading would be
silenCedby the comprehension of the true
purpose of effort. It i Would be under- ,
stood that the end of all professions is to
itcguire power and opportunity to eslti
'rate. the _highest qualities of ,our natu re; that a ; day-laborer may obtain this privi
lege, and a legislator can -do no ;morn;
and that men are not to be honored ac
cording to the`work they do, but accord.
ing to the use they. Make. of the power
which' that work has obtained. All in,
dnstry -of hand- or mind, is; mean if done

Wisdom in Love-Making.
I know that men natarally stunk from
the attempt to obtain couipanions who are
their superiors; but they will find that
really intelligent woinen, who possess the
most desirable qualities, are_ uniformly
modest, and hold .their charms in modest
estimation. What such women .most ad - -
mire in men is 'gallantry ; not, the gallan.
try of courts and fops,; bat daring, courage,
devotion; decision, and tefined civility. .A
man's bearing w ins, tea superior women
where:his boots and brains. win one. If
a man- stand before.a- woman- with respect .
for himself and fearlassness of her, his
suit is ,half won.. The' rest may, safely be
left to the parties most interested. - There.
' tore, never be afraid of a woman. Women
are the most harmless 'and agreeable area.
