tho inoMt abicct slavery on ono liaud : and
the most oppress! vo tyrrany on tho othor,
have existed togclhcr.t Tho ancient Luc
idcmonians may nerve as ono example. No
people over mora utterly despised labor ; it
wa.i consigned to the bands of thoir Helots,
who were, in consequence, tho most abject
and degraded slaves. Persons who thus dc
spise labor, und contemn tho laborer, may
not know, or may not earn, what miseries
they inflictmion society, by thus striving to
overturn Uio basis or republican liberty und
xocial prosperity; but neither their igno.
ronco, nor wilfufness, can palliate tho guilt
of such efforts. Tho direct tendency of
their example, is to degrade t lie majority of
mankind, and to render labor less honorable
than their own ,rmastcrly inactivity." And
suppose, for a moment, that it should prcvuil
so laraito make the mechanic ashamed of
his tools ; lead him to r.-puiliute his trade and
forsake his shops; how are men's wants to
lie supplied ? Evidently by compulsory la.
bor: the poor, driven by necessity, must be
come slaves to the rich, thus widening tho
invidious distance between them, until the
reward of tho laborer's toil shull be u bcanty
subsistence at tho discretion of tho master.
This is one effect ;'and it is easy to see what
otheniliust follow. Perhaps one of the most
cuttins robukeH ever uivcii to this unirit of
aristocratic arrogance, was administered by
hat great man, Cliiel Justice -JMnrshall. A
gentlemen recently settled in Richmond as a
merchant, went to market carrying his own
basket. He observed, however, othor gen
tleman attended by servants, making purcha
ses, and felt a littlo ashamed of his Ksition.
Turning to an old mun, whom ho saw rather
rustily dressed, und lugging a well-filled has.
hot, he asked him to tuko his also. "Cortain
ly, sir," said the old man ; and taking tho
merchant's basket, curried it to his residence.
Tho gentlemun offered him a quartor for his
trouble, which wus refused. This created
some sprpriso, and led tho merchant to notice
where tho old man went. Passing on, tho
old man stopped at a house which had been
pointed out to him as tho residenco of Judgo
Marshall. "Ah," said he, "that accounts
for his refusal of tho money, ho is Judae Mar
.shall' servant." In a littlo whilo, tho irter.
oliuut received a polite note, requesting tho
ploaauro of his company to dinner at Judgo
Marshall's, un arriving at tho door, tho
vorv same old man answered his summons.

his animated and delightful conversations.

"because lie must try to please every body.
In tho negligence of a moment, perhaps, a
small paragraph pops upon him ; he hastily
throws it to the compositor, it k-ineorted and
ho is ruined to till intents and purposes."
" l oo much tho case, 1 rim, said my uncle,
with a deep sigh ; "too much the ense."
"And pleasn your honors," continued Trim,
elevating his voice and striking into an im

"Tho printer, sometimes," pursued tho "cor
poral, "hits upon a pieco that pleases him
mightily ; and ho thinks it cannot but go
down with his subscribers. But, alas! Sir,
who can calculate the human mind ? He in
serts it, and it is all over with him. They
forgive others, but they cannot forgive a prin

on his nose, and reads it over in search of a

specs off, folds them and sticks thorn in his
itocket, declaring tho paper good for nothing
but to burn. So it goes. Every ono thinks
it ought to bo printed expressly for himself,

plaining would you bcliovo it, air," saya the
Corporal, clasping his hands beseechingly,

who has enjoyed an immersion in Malmsey.
Punch has tried it with the very best Sherry.

"What ! a five franc piece for a tub full of

"Gently gently. At least Jiffy others
bathed in the same wine afitr Punch. The
keeper of the bagne had a preference for
Punch, and gave him the first dip. After
him came fifty others making in all jMs
five frano pieces. A good price for the tub."

"Not at all. Not so, by any means."

"Drink ! Who would drink such stuff?"
"Why tho English do-the Yankees do!
The .latter import it in largo quantities. It
is a great favorite in Yankee-land." k
Now, dear wine-drinking friends, anti
temporanco friends, when you next smack
your lips over a glass of champagne or bur.

possibly have bathed in it, and see if the re
