then put on her mouse-colored silk bonnet

tour of investigation."
" I'll fiud out something about Miss Tel

the indefatigable widow.
Miss Grace Toiler was at home, helping
Mary Elton in an elaborate piece of fine
embroidery. The room where the two
girls sat was very p'ain. carpeted with the
finest ingrain, and curtained with very or
dinary pink and white chintz, yet it looked
snug and cherry, for the fat black-bird was
chirping noisily in the . window, and a
stand of mignionetle and yener
pansies gave a delightful tint to this pretty
picture of everyday life.

It has been assumed bv an eminent
author, and I believe not satisfactorily
controverted by any. that labor is the unit
or measure of all commodities, or in other '
words till acquired values. The natural
resultant of this important truth or asser
tion is, that labor is the basis of all civili
zation. Hence the nation containing Ihe
great est number of laborers and the great
est proportional amount of exchangeables
taken in the aggregate must be the most
wealthy, considered financially, and ought
to be the most powerful and influential.
Instead of the latter being the case, we
find that unnatural relations of labor and
capital have frequently reduced the stan
dard of greatness and excellence to the
lowest level. Where laborers are intelli
gent, skillful, and protected in all their
natural rights, the nation iu proportion to
numbers possesses both moral and phys
ical force, and the respect and admiration
of every other people. It is also apparent
that whatever debases the laborer degrades
the nation, and permanent and increasing
prosperity implies augmentation of the
skill, intelligence, number and importance
of the laboring mass. If the records of the
past and the present position of the differ
ent nationalities do not disprove these as
sumptions, what ought to be the course of
all classes of true Americans when each is
a portion of the sovereignty, seems to me
both plain and evident. Ikmce the ques
tion that has latterly produced some ex
citement and discussion wiih reference to
Chinese seems to me to merit something
more than a passing notice. Has the
American laborer nothing to fear from the
inundation of our shores with tens of thou
sands upon tens of thousands of the very
dregs of the Mongolian race, issuing from
that dense hive of population where for
centuries the extreme avarice of the gov
erning lew has reduced hundreds ot mil
lions to the lowest worst possible condi
tion? In no other country is the discrep
ancy between labor and its just reward so
great, and it is the universal verdict of all
travelers that in none other are they in
such a state of total depravity and wretch
edness. A late author that has traveled
more than any other living American,
states that the filth, wretchedness, and
crimes of the worst sinks of pollution of
London and Paris, iu comparison .with
those of Hong Kong and Canton, are de
cency, plenty, innocence, and virtue. Of
this stream of iniquity turned towards us
through the aravico and cupidity of Chi
nese officials and others, we as yet begin
to feel but the slightest effects. Without
detriment to, but Avith absolute benefit to
them, they might disgorge at once upon
us, of this class of slaves of moral corrup
tion and putrescence, a number equal to
the total population of the United States.
Yf hat portion of our country is not to them
sufficiently inviting, or where might not
capitalists, if permitted, employ them with
immense pecuniary profit ? Is it not potent
to the most obtuse intellect that for Amer
ican laborers to enter into competition
with these Chinese hordes employed by
and directed by -capitalists, either Chinese
or others, means the same e renin SI condi
tion for them ? If there is not applied
some remedy, what must be the inevitable
result? Do we not see ourselves by the
mere logic of passing events incapacitated
for the support of ourselves and our fami
lies and that which rightfully belongs to
us denied us by the niggardly and perni
cious policy of monopolists and slavocrats?
And what must be the mental vision of
the hitter blinded by the jingle, the near

Tue Spartaxs' Idea of Death. The
Spartans, after having removed the danger,
arising from the effluvia of putrefaction of
corpses, caused the dormitotjes of the
dead to be built as near as possible those
of the living ; hence it was that there was
scarcely a public edifice of any kind in
Sparta, whether theater or church, which
had not tombs built abouP it. the object
being to familiarize the common people;
women and children, with the idea of
death, in order that they should norbe
frightened at the sight of a corpse, but
that the frequent sight of funeral obse
quies, monuments, graves, and bones,
should keep them constantly in mind of
their frail condition. It was with a simi-
lar view that the anciewt k?T.gyti:vn visaed,
to bring a dried skeleton of a man into
their banqueting halls, and place it where
their guests could not fail to see it. While
on other occasions they used to wait until
the feast was over, then present the Qra-
pany w ith an image of death, the person
who carried it about crying outQ" Byink
and lie merry, for such shalt ihou be when
thou art dead."
