And did he succeed? Could he wiu for him-

ti'.i he sought, for himself and family.
We have frequently conversed with him, iu
later years, of his early trials, and the fate of
the poorer boys of the towu in which we lived.
vtwo of thsm were brothers of his) aud were
startled at the euergy with which Le would de
scribe their hardships, and the actunl horror of
their condition. If labor had been respected,
probably every one cf tbem would have learned
a trade, and been god citizens. But slavery
made that a ladge of dishonor, bj1 Mampecj
then with a social degradation, aud lliey fell.
if the w'Jtiiy had spoken their word of kind-ii-ss
to them, or had understood the injury tliey
mere iguorantly doing as bravo-spiriied youth
as ever litod, they might have prospered. They
saw, heard, felt uothing but harihness and
wrong. They knew no youth, aud had no
home. Within doors they enjoyed no happi
ness; without, no hope; aud, it was only the
renl hero, whose courage ranged as far above
battle-fielU daring, and all ill-be-praised nctiou,
as heaven does above earth, who could defy these
mouulain social evils, aud soar above them,
and make a ma of himself despite them all!
To think that of taese poorer youth of our
age aud ton u, whose history we can trace, only
oue survies, and that twelve of them certainly
were crushed because their parents were vronh-le-w,
and they poor aad iguorant! It is a sad,
al recollection. And why, we may be asked,
do we relate it? That you, questioner, and you,
reader, and all of us may learn to be kind to
every human bing.uiiy resolve, not ouly to co
no social wrong, but to see that every oue
within our sphere enjoys his social rigbt. to la
bor for the poor and humble; and by cheering
them on, and lifting them up, to make society
what it should be a means of unfolding what
ever moral or mental worth the Creator hai be
stowed on each, a glorious and progressive re
ality, and not a curse to the many who toil for
it, and a mad mockery of our common origin,
and the Common Father of all in Heaven!

Lord Brougham applied his remarks directly
to the F. n g I nth election election jtit held
and which show that the people there are be
ginning to thiuk for themselves, said he:
"The approaching contents had an aspect
somewhat new, because there never ws an oc
