THE UPPER AND LOWEis.!.. ::CLASSZS or SOCIETY.—
Upon what - does this diitinction depend? Na
ture is saidio be harmonious in all of her.iaws of
production;,--The sa me parent treealways produces
the same kind of fruit. The same class of quad
rupeds alivays keep their dentity l in their tiffspring,
and the [Annan family bylniture seem to follow the
same rule, unless a voluntary change is effected by
acts of the parentage. But in countries that stand
prominent in the world, and give customs, habits
and social laws to civilization, we behold monstro
sities developing themselves. In the same family
we see the oldest made a noble, a lord, a king,
while the younger drop down to an inferior grade,
and are known only as the lower classes; in the so
cial scale. This, we know, depends upon human
law, upon conventional agreement. Our ancestors,
when they fled from oppression hosed upon such
monstrosities, undertook to disenthral themselves,
and began at once in the free woodsof wild Amer.
ica, to talk about equality, equal rights to all men.
And when nor government was instituted, we see
the same spirit standing out in bold relief, in the
bold declaration that no rank of nobility shall be
allowed in a country where all men are born free
and equal. In those days, men and women claimed
to be, and felt that they were brothers and sisters
in the great human family, and were ready to fra
ternize, and live together as such under the spread.
log branches of the tree of liberty that they plant•
ed for their protection.
But we degenerate eons and daughters of that no.
ble.initidcd ancestry, have spurned their rich legs.
cy, and feel most proud in displaying our own
choice in borrowed characters of apes. America
now has no nationality of character or manners,
but is aping the habits and customs and manners
and sentiments of others, whom our f.ithers and
mothers in the infancy of this Republic, despised
and abhorred as (teapots and tyrants. We now be.
gin to divide society, and upon what grounds?
Upon the same as they do in the countries we are
aping—upon external circumstances, such as birth
and wealth ! A young moan by chance gets wealth—
gets married, and commences housekeeping with a
wife who must sustain the dignity of their station ;
his brother is a plain laboring man, and when the
table is spread with the dainties and luxuries of
aristocracy, the brother "must wait until the second
table, as workmen ought not to sit at the same ta
ble with people of true refinement !"
ft is a most shameful and despisable fact, that
people in our country arc making fools of them
selves, simply because others have done so, and
made the masses of society bow down and say that
they are gods, and we will worship them on ac.
count of their gold ! There are as many in Amer.
lea to bow down and worship golden calves, as
there were among the old larnenies, in the days of
their folly and degeneracy- We have no objection
to gold or wealth, but have an objection to its being
made the test of distinction among men, or a des.
pontiff) to crush down and trample over human nu
' lure with all the tender sensibilities and refined
sympathies that live and burn in the soul and heart
of many a person in the ranks of the poor!
We most sincerely believe in an aristocracy of
society—but we want a rational, humane, elevated
one—one that is based upon good deeds, instead of
money—where persons shall be exulted for their
works, mental, moral, and physical ! The working
classes, the honest, intellectual, moral, and humane,
are the true nobility in the sight of common sense
of Heaven.—" Let him that would be greatest,"
said the great Regenerator of the human family,
"serreat meat." Let him do something that is
generous, good, great, sublime in its character, and

GA 311ILINO.—.The arduous and perilous work of
opening the eyes of the community to the horrible
mysteries of Gambling was commenced some years
since by J. 11. Green. who in boyhood and destitute
orphanage had been forced by seeming necessity
into a.soriation with gamblers, had been initiated
into and ultimately become nn adept in their nefa.
rions arts, and had thus aided in bringing many to
ruin. At length disgusted, penitent, and self oh.
horring, he forsook the guilty craft, made restitu.
tion of his plunder. PO Ihr as he was able, united
with a Christian Church, and commenced the work
of opening the eyes of the nnintinted to the swind
ling nature of the games, ostensibly of chance, by
which gamblers despoil their Victims.--Having
been some time engaged in the manufacture and
sale of Playing Cards, lie knows and can prove that
they arc almost or quite never honestly made—
that the manufacturer is nearly always an necom.
plice of the gamblers, and that all his cards are pri.
vately marked so that he who has paid for the
marking and procured them to be put in the market
at low rates in order to force their sale and general
use, can at all time. distinguish, by n glance at the
backs, either the whole or all those most important
in the genie he professes to play. Then, boxes
from which cards arc dealt in the game styled Fare
(a very common game ott which thousands after
thousands are daily staked and quickly lost) are
full of fraudulent devices, whereby the banker or
dealer is enabled to give himself the winning cards
whenever he thinks fit to do so. Add to this the
immense advantages which an eye and a memory
trained to incredible feats, whereby the thorough
gambler knows from a glance the relative position
of each card; a sense of touoli so exquisite tint he
can soon distinguish each card by the edge alone;
and a slight of hand so amazing that be can deal
with apparent fairness to each player around the
board precisely such u hand as he chooses. Thus,
as between the practised gambler and the novice
or honest player there is no fragment of chance hut
a simple game of plunderer and plundered. Ho
who plays with a gambler has no more chance of
winning in the long.run than in an attempt to dig
gold from the drifting sand, or distil it from the
waters of the ocean.
Mr. Green has steadily pursued for years the
work of exposing Gambling throughout those sec.
lions, where the vice is most prevalent; and hip
representations have induced the Legislatures of
several States to pass stringent and effective laws
for its suppression. Ho has just planted himself on
our City, fur a determined campaign.—N. Trib.
