Some molcrn writer of tlic npin
ion that f.ols were scut into the world
to afford amusement and relaxation to
the vfhe men, whr would, it is feared,
lead a very dull port of life without
them; but it strike? us that wire men
were sent on the earth only to hv
laughed at by foe's. In numbers, then?
cao be no doubt that fools have the ad
vantage, and therefore, whenever ridi
cule is made the te.st of truth, it in no
wonder that foily is victorious over wis
dom ; in fact, if numbers and noise
carried the day in mundane affairs, as
they Eornctin.es pcciij likely to do, tin
would be a fools' paradise indeed, and
the sooner wise men got out of it the
But a sharp scrutiny into history
will shov us that it is not in virtue of
their much folly, but their little; wis
dom, that fools are so powerful upon
earth. " To (;et the fools and knaves
of a country well r; verued, that is the
problem fcr States to solve," says Car
lisle. True ; and aa yet no State has
arrived at a thoroughly satis factory
solution. Every little helps. Kven a
few honest words about lools may uot
be utterly useless.
" As one star dificrcth from another
etar in glory' fo does one fool difier
from another fool in folly. There is
the vain fool, the proud fool, the
learned fool and the ignorant fool, the
talkative, fool and the silent fool, the
clever fool and the stupid fool. All
theso require examination. Pre-eminent
io foolishness is the vain fcol; but
lie is for the most part eaore harmlfs
than the rest; besides he is fair game
for those who laugh at the absurd i tier,
of their fellows. The most comfortable
thing in this uncomfortable world is
the vain fool. Confidence in other
people's good opinion of him wraps him
arousd liko a garment, cr rather it en
closes him like a coat of mail, and is
proof against every tliag and arrow
that Ecnne or satire may aim at him.
Great is the vain fool's faith in the
eentiment he inspires ; " childlike and
Hand," he has no misgiving?, but be
lieves, without a moment's hesitation,
ll that he wishes to believe. If a man
behaves with kindness and civility to
hiut, the vain fool ets httn down as an
admirer. If a woman smiles at him
good naturedly, he takes it for granted
she is distractedly in lovo with him,
and makes a greater fool than ever in
consequence. And yet, after all, the
vain fool is the last of the species one
would wish to see die out.
The proud fool is almost as happy in
his opinion of himself as the vain fiwl
in his. belief in the opinion of others
concerning him. 15ut the proud fool's
happiness is not of a lively, expmsive,
social kind, like that of the other. No!
A proud fuol is solemn, slow, senten
tious and reserved. He is often suspi
cious, too You nny lauh without fear
at a vain fool it would never enter his
head that you were laughing at him;
but be wan how you indulge your
mirth in the presence of a proud fool.
If he- did n;tt know exactly what you
were laughing at, he would fake it for
graitted that you laughed at him, and
would be venomous agaitit you in the
future, lie is not without a nervous
fear that he is underrated, and his life
is a continuous effort to keq up his
own dignity. He acts the part of a
gnat man to himself ; he looks on at
Siis own performance and applauds
The proud fool is the most unpopular
of the whole' genus, because the little
miud that he has is always occupied
with himself. If he would send it
abroad to give it an tiring, he might
perhaps eeae to bo a fool; for he is
not without the genus ot goo 1 sjose,
and only pride floods all, aud will not
stiller them to grow.
The learned fool is tedious and ridi
culous, without having any .suspicion of
the fact, lie lives in the pleasing de
lusion that the reading of books is
svnonymous with th'e acquisition of
knowledge.- Few people read so much
and apprehend so liitle of the irtj.nini:
of wh it they revl. H prides himself
upon being a tuau of vast reading, and
will talk away in a sort of bodii-h un
sale, so that you would say he had
picked up a great ejuantity of valuable
matter, in hi studies. The only thing
he is thoroughly mit'er of is the ue of
oi words. He imposes upon women
attd simple minded jn-ons by his ter
rible settii forth of unheard ot epi
thets. " He draweth the thread o
Ids verbo-ity finer thin the Ftaplo.of
his aruum jnf ;" and as to his (junta
tioioirom dead and living tongue-, you
would swear he had been at a t:reaf
fe-j-t of tangUTes and h:d stolen the
erars. Th-re is no hrm in the learned
fool; bui. he is likely to talk you dead
The talkative foot ioy not he the
worst of fools, but he is deeid 'djy one
of the mo-t tin plea int. The clipper of
a bell, the continual flowing of water,
trives but a faint conception of the wishv
washy flow of his everlasting talk.
Windy, frothy, in-ane, vapid, sense
less, and semi-articulate, he will go ot
for ever, without breathing pauses or
full Hops. If is useless to wait for
something to come out at la-t nothing
The stupid fool is the armc and
crown, the ne hx ultra of foolishness.
This is that sublimity of denseness,
that pure, opaque stupidity, airaiosl
which, as Sehnler says, "the Jods
fight in vain." Hut, after ll, what
would we do without the fools? A
genial Lamb says, " Let us chciish the
fools, lest in the improvement of the
race, like the Dodo, they become

Mutual Helps. Walter Scott
wrote : The race of mankind would
pcrisdi did we cease to help each other.
From the time that the mother binds
the child's head to the moment some
kind asistant wipes the dew of death
from the brow of the dying, v?e cannot
exist without mutual help. All, there
fore, that need, have a right to ask it
of their fellow mortals, and no one who
has it in his power to grant, can refuse
without incurring guilt."

We have always contended that
there was in the Democratic party a
strong clement in favor of supporting
our Government upon the basis of true
Republican principles; that when these
principles were clearly set forth, aud
the danger of following in the lead of
dogmas taught by the Democracy was
thoroughly understood, that hundreds
and thousands of those who were
biiudly following the lead of base and
designing men, who were toling them
to political ruin, would see the danger
of their way, and turu from their errors
iuto th true iight. All can see in the
recent elections that such was the case.
The triumphs of the people over those
base villains connected with the Tarn
many r'ngsshow conclusively that when
the people see dinger, they will pre
pare to avert it. The point endeavored
to be made by some of our Democratic
cotcuiporaries, that it was not a Repub
lican victory, from the fact that it was
achieved by a union of Republicans and
law-loving Democrats does not detract
from the glory of the achievement
It is veiy patent to every ob-erving
mind that it was not accomplished un
der the leadership of Democrats. Ihere
being but two parties in the field, it is
also evident that if not accomplished
by on, it must have been done by the
other. It was not our purpose, how
ever, in this article, to crow over victo
rie?, or to harrow t!;o minds of the con
qnered by memories of defeat, but to
hear testimony, and proudly loo, to the
f.ict that no great part of the American
people are so wedded to party as to go
in direct antagonism to their own and
the true interests of the country, in
order merely to gratify personal p;tc ;
that whenever vice and fraud run
rampant in high places that the people
rise in their might and suppress it, be
it Democratic, or lx it Republican
This is the policy which should actuate
all classes of citir.us in cafir,"j their
vote for public officer. In forming
political parties, layiug d own political
platforms aud principle?, it should ever
b the aim to support the right and
upjircs the wrong ; and whenever, in
th" esiiunii m of am party, there is no
wroutr H the ot-ritiun to longer fi-hf.
it is meet and proper that they shooid
follow the C"ure being advocated by
the Democracy tit present pursue a

Death on the Mcaraer AJax.
The San Francisco Chronicle of the
9th inst. contains the following part oVt-
lars of a death on th Ajax :
"The friends of Leon Gosset, the
man who died last Wednesday on board
the Aihx, wh.le the vessel was coming
into bort, alleire that his death was
cause by iil treatment. The fobtwing!
parttcuirs were giveu : Deceased was
named Leon .liosset, aged City three
years, a native ot Conueilles (Kure),
Franee, a butcher by trade. The
morning that she Ajax passed over the
Columbia River bar, a Belgian, who
occupied a unk with (io.et in the
steerage, coul tind to the mate that
Gosset had a large butcher knife in
the bunk, ani he was afraid that he
might use it.j While Gosset was on
deck on Suudjy morning the mite con
fi-cated the ktife. lly this time it was
whispered about the stceratic that Go
set was crazy, and to satisfy the other
passengers a watch was placed over
him during the afternoon, while he
was lying in) his bunk. Soon after,
Go-set spraufVoin his bunk and made
a rush at a ps-t nger who was not far
distant, and fith whom hv had had no
difficulty. Toe mate was ent for, and
he, with theaid of home of the crew,
was dragged on deck, hi boots having
first been foced on his feet, and with
iut a linen coat on his back he was
pushed iota the donkey-engine rom,
which is a fuill house on deck -containing
the in u$d donkey-engine and
a quantity of rubbish. Although Goset
was perspiring profusely from his
struggles, aid the weather was cold, he
was thrown into this cheerlcs, comfort
less pUce without a blanket, without
sufdcient clothing, and unable to keep
warm liium-lf by reason of his having
been put in irons. In this donkey en
e room Gct remained two night
aud a day, during which time the
weather was intensely cold. When the
vcMel was r sight of the hod on
Wednesday, it was discovered during
the second dor watch that Goet was
dead..- His remains were received by
order of the M?emd ofiicer, who refused
to aihiv any uf the passenger to. look
at the ly. On arriving at thi port
the ret. in were budded over to Coro

challenge. The month allowed was the
lunar m . nth of twenty eight diys. so
that, for the completion of the under
tiking, tn average of 30,000 strikes per
diem wa required. This at CO per
minute, or 3,000 per hour and neither
the huiQtn inttdlect. nor the human
hand cn bcexpeeted to do more would
call for ten hours' labor iu every twenty
four. With a proper repect for the
Sabbath, the gentleman determined io
abstain from his work on Sundays, pud
by this determination diminished' by
four days the period allowed him; at
the same time, by so doing, he in
creased the daily average of his ptroMes
to upward of 41.000. On the first day
he executed 50,000 ; on the second day
nearly as many. Rut at length, after
many dnys, his hand became veiy stiff
