War War! what miseries nre henped to
gether in the sound! What an accumulation
of curses is breathed in that one word. To
us, happy in our insular position, wo have,
within existing memory, known chiefly of
war by its pomp and circumstance alone; the
gay parade, the glancing arms, the bright
colors, the inspiring music these arc what
wo see of war in its outset; glry, and
praise, and badges of honor, these are what
appear to us as its result. The favorite son,
tho beloved brother, he who, perhaps, is
dearer still, returns to the home of his youth
or of his heart, having sown danger and
reaped renown. Thus wo do look on war.
But ask the inhabitant of a country ?7m7t
ha been the scat of tear, what is fus opinion
of it. He will tell you that he has seen his
country ravaged, his homo violated, his fam
ily . But no! the tongue recoils from
speaking tho horrors and atrocities of war
thus brought into the bosom of a peaceful
home. All the amenities and charities of
domestic life arc outraged, arc annihilated.
All that is dearest to man; all that tends to
refine, to soften him to make him a noble
and a better being all these arc trampled
under foot by a brutal soldiery all these arc
torn from his heart forever! Ho will tell
you that he detests war so much that he al
most despises its glories; and that he detests
it because he has known its evils, and felt
how poorly and miserably they are compen
sated by the fame which is given to the
slaughterer and destroyer, because he is
He that can apprehend and consider vice
with all her baits and seeming pleasures,
and yet abstain, and yet distinguish, and yet
prefer that which is truly better, ho is tho
true wayfaring Christian. I cannot praise a
furtive and cloistered virtue unexercised and
unbreathed, that never sallies out and sees
her adversary, but slinks out of tho race
where that immortal garland is to be run for,
not without dust and heat. Milton.
A gentlemen was one day composing the
music of a rondeau lor a ladv to whom he
Paid his addresses. " Pray Miss 1) (said
he) what time do you prefer? " O ! (she
replied carelessly,) any time will do, but the
quicker the better. " The company smiled
at the rejoinder, and the gentleman took her
at her word.
TITY AND CHARITY INCULCATED.
BY THE REV. ORVILLE DEWEY.
The very pirate, that dyes the ocean
wave with the blood of his fellow beings;
that meets with his defenceless victimin
some lonely sea where no cry for help can
be heard, and plunges his dagger to the
heart that is pleading for life, which is call
ing upon him by all tho names of kindred, of
children, and home, to spare yes, the very
pirate is such a man, as you or I might have
been. Orphanage in childhood; an unfriend
ed youth; an evil companion; a resort to
sinful pleasure; familiarity with vice; a scorn
ed and blighted name; scared and crushed
affections; desperate fortunes; these are
steps which might have led any nun among
us, to unfurl upon tho high seas the bloody
flag of universal defiance; to have waged
war with our kind; to have put on the terrific
attributes, to have done the dreadful deeds,
and to have died the awful death of tlr
ocean robber. How many affecting rela
tionships of humanitv plead with us to pity
him? That head that is doomed to pay tho
price of blood, once rested upon a mother's
bosom. The hand that did that accursed
work, and shall soon be stretched, mid and
nerveless, in tho felon's grave, was once
taken and cherished by a father's hand, and
led in the ways of sportive childhood and in
nocent pleasure. The dreaded monster of
crime, has once been the object of sisterly
love, and all domestic endearment. Pity
him, then. Pity his blighted hope and his
crushed heart. It is a wholesome sensibili
ty. It is reasonable; it is meet for frail and
sinning creatures like us to cherish. It fore
goes no moral discrimination. It feels no
crime; but feels it as a weak, tempted and
rescued creaturo should. It imitates the
great Master; and looks with indignation
upon the offender, and yet is grieved for him.
Dr. Johnson, at a lato period of his life,
observed to Sir Joshua Reynolds " If a
man do not make new acquaintances as he
passes through life, he will soon find himself
alone. A man, sir, should keep his friend
ship in constant repair. "
