TltE I3TFIUKXCE OP CONFUCIUS.
Few men have exerted a wider
Influence than Confucius. He vrasl
s before Christ, and
rary with the proph-
Zcchariah. At the

Confucius was a lad playing in
northeastern China, in what is now
the province of Shangtung. Soc
rates and Cincinnatus were not
born till one hundred years later.
His wisdom was not borrowed from
Greece or Rome, whose sages all
came after him. His simplicity was
equal to that of Socrates, his polit
ical - system more enduring than
that of Solon. His father, who was
prime minister ortlie province ot j
Loo, died while Confucius was a '
... n . . . e. 1
child, and the son was educated by
:the grandfather. He was married
at nineteen, but after a vear of
-wedded life was divorced. When
only, twenty-one years of age he
was appointed to a high position
as superintendent of a department
of internal revenue. These were
the days of form and ceremony.
Officials thought more of their dig
" mty, comfort and case than of their
stntina A flairs worfi vei'V much
wound round with red tape. He
cut through old customs, introdu-
. ced reforms, turned out lossuizea
and venal officials, and reorganized
the department. The revenue that
had been pocketed oy ine oma-is
found its way into the treasury -Having
won the approbation ot Jus
sovereign, lie- was appointed to a
higher position, as superintendent
ofrain. Men who4ire turned out
of office always have a grudge a
gainst those w'ho displace them.
Corrupt office-holders cannot toler
ate an honest colleague, and suc
cess begets envy. The favor of the
sovereign and the applause of the
people were ollVet in the case of
l&nfucius by the enmity of the
mandarins, who were able to drive
Hum from office. 0
lie traveled in his own country
and studied the habits and customs
of tin? people of the different pro
vinces. Finding vice and immoral
ity prevalent everywhere, he took
the side of virtue, rallied good and
true men around him, was eventu
ally called to court and made prime
minister, with almost0 absolute au
thority. There was an overhaul
ing of public affairs, correction of j
abuses, abandonment of old cus
toms and a clearing out of dishon
est officials. They made every ef
fort possible to get rid of the new
minister, but he was nearest the
throne, and had a strong hand.
The state coach with its new dri
ver, crushed all who threw them
selves in its way. Some manda
rins lost their heads : others were
China at that time was composed
.of nine provinces, instead of eigh
teen as at. present, each governed
;by a prince. The wise adminis
tration of affairs in the province of
.Loo, of which Confucius was the
prime minister, soon gave it a su-
-periomy mat provoKeu me enmuy
of surrounding States.
The prince of Loo, not unlike
other princes of so-called royal
iblood, who have lived since his
time, thought less of virtue than
of the voluptuous damsels which
vere sent to his court by a neigh
boring ruler, who understood the
weak side of the royal brother.
Through woman's charms Sam
son lost his eves and hair, David
Iiis uprightness, Solomon his exal
tea wisaom, iuaric Antony an em
pire, Confucius his place at court.

Let not this be construed as a
calumny against the better half of
the human race. Antony was far
weaker than Cleopatra, and the
prince who sent Confucius into ex
ale more foolish than the damsels
who captivated him with their
At the age of fifty-six Confucius
laid aside0tle robes of office, left
the province', traveling westward,
melancholy and depressed, hunted
by his enemies, who, having driv
en him from power, determined to
take his life. He was harrassed
from town to town, from the plains
t the mountains, from the public
road to out-of-the-way places, and
forced to conceal himself in lonelv
retreats, where he bemoaned his
lot m verse as tluis translated :
"Through the valley howls the blast,
Drizzling rain falls thick and fast ;
Homeward goe3 the youthful bride
O'er the wild crowds by her side.
JIow is it, O azure Heaven,

cepts, and principles of political
economy. In one respect they are
in marked contrast to the Jewish
Scriptures, the religious element
being almost wholly wanting.

The virtues taught by him were
benevolence, righteousness, propri
ety, knowledge and faith. This
moral precept inculcated by him,
"What you do not want done to
yourself, do not do to others," is
the negative side of the teachings
of the Savior, in the Sermon on the
Mount, delivered nearly 450 years
All questions relating to morals
and government are referred to the
writings of Confucius, and those
of the ancients revised by him, as
the ultimate authority.
The civilization of the present
time habits, customs, social life,
society in all its relations is con
trolled by a literature coeval with
that of ancient Greece. The old
civilization has not been changed
by the succession of dynasties,
Tartar conquest, or Buddhism.
Like a river flowing from the high
mountains to the sea, through two
thousand years it bas pursued its
almost unvarving course.
These are important considera
tions for us to keep in view while
wandering through the great cities
and observing the manners and
customs of the people. Our .N ew
Way Bound the World.
Bird, and Fish-Earth, Air,
If to the six substantives named
in our titles Ave add three verbs, to
walk, to flu, to sxebn. we seem to
include all that can be said of the
animals with which we are most
familiar. For to the question,
" What is it?" the answer is JJeast,
or Jird or Fish. To the question,
" How does it act ?" the answer is,
It icalks, itjlies, or it sicims; and
to the question, " Where does it
live?" the answer is, On the earth,
in the air, or in the icater.
And if the inquirer has been
more devout than scientific, and if
he' has accepted the groupings of
the literal Mosaic record of the
creation; or if he has been strictly
brought up and duly impressed
with the wickedness of asking in
convenient questions, he may rest
satisfied with the above answers,
and base his further investigations
into Natural History upon the
creed that Beasts are animals that
walk upon the earth; Birds are an
imals that fly in the air; and Fish
are animals that swim in the sea.
But if he be at the same time dis
posed to respect the opinions of
Cuvier and Agassiz, and if, still
better, he be encouraged to use his
own brains concerning the living
things about him, it
him that there are
will occur to
a crood manv
aiKcrs on tne eann wnicn are
not beasts, some Flyers in the air
which certainly are not birds, and
a few Swimmers in the sea which
he would much scruple to consider
as fish. He has heard of the bit
ter dispute between Linnaeus and
one of his former pupils, Klein, as
to whether the whale should be
called a fish; the former, like near
ly every one at that day, thought
it was a fish; while the latter, who
had an opportunity to examine one,
discovered that it was warm
blooded, had lungs and other or
gans, like those of a seal, and could
not, therefore, be a fish; and though
the controversy once appeared to
our student very trivial, yctjhe now
begins to appreciate the whale's
situation; for he may swim himself
occasionally, but he would by no
means, on that account, see his
nearest relations among the finny
He goes shooting at dusk and
brings down what he thinks to be
a bird; but it has very sharp teeth,
as he learns to his cost; it is cov
ered with fur, which no stretch of
imagination can convert into feath
ers; and its wing, bird-like as it
seemed at first, is really four very
long fingers with a thin skin be
tween them; and altogether, but
for those fingers, the creature more
nearly resembles a mole or a mouse
than a bird; it is in fact, a bat,
which is a true mammal, bringing
forth its young alive, and suckling
them with milk like the cow and
other beasts, and so differing wide
ly from the birds, which lay eggs
and have nn milL-
have no milk
To still further impair his faith
in the ancient subdivisions of ani
mals, he remembers that many in-
dubitable birds spend most of their
time upon the water, that even the
hens are unable to remain long m
the air; that the ostrich flaps its
broad wings with no greater effect
than to hasten its pace upon the
earth; and that in New Zealand
are found remains of a gigantic
feathered biped whose egg would
fill a man's hat, which had two
lonr hind-legs, and a bill, and eve
ry thing else like a bird, but was
utterly0 destitute of wings, and
could no more fly than the ponder
ous mammal for which it is named.
But, he exclaims, almost m des
pair, even if there are beasts which
fly and birds which do not, even if
there are both beasts and birds that
swim, yet the fish at least are or
derly and regular in their habits.
" As wet as a fish" surely implies
that they are always in the water;
and "As uneasy as a fish out of
water" is proverbial testimony to
the necessities of their organiza
tion. Fish, then, do swim in the
But ston. Have we not read of
flying-fish, which, to escape their
enemies, leap into the air and
skim over the waves for a distance
of seventy or eighty yards ? And,
worse yet for the believer in piscine
proprieties, for seventy-five years
there has been on record the de
scription aud history of a fish that
climbed a tree in Tranquebar; while
at varioiis times since then ac
counts more or less reliable have
reached us concerning the killing
of fish in a tree by shot aimed at
Whether the effect of this series
of disappointments will be to dis
gust the inquirer with the whole
science of zoology, which seems to
contradict not only the Bible but
all ancient and honorable tradition,
and even at times itself, or to stim
ulate him to broader and more
careful views of the habits and
groupings of animals, will depend
upon his general character. But
let us at any rate follow out the lat
ter course as far as our present
space will admit, and learn whether
Beast, Bird, and Fish really mean
Jinv Thincr in n. sfipntitif- nnuit. rt
view; whether Walking and Fly
and Swimming are the onlv
three kinds of locomotion ; and
whether Earth, Air, and Water are
the only medic in which animals
may live and move. Burt. G.
Wilder, in Harper's Magazine for
A young lady, being rebuked by
her mother for kissing her intend
ed, justified the act by quoting the
passage: "Whatsoever you would
that men should do unto you, do
you even so to them."
