WIUQUS IS THE FAULT r .
It is a common subject of com
plaint iliiil the using generation arc
wanting in the principle.- of res
pect to parents,. andv their sen
iors in age. We do not know
enough of psychic forces, yet, to
say whether an actual change has
been made in the internal structure
of mankind, to produce this result ;
but we do know that the change has
taken place- and it is a serious mat
ter, not only for the consideration of
paicnls and the elder portion of
our community, but also for the
consideration of these young people
in whom the change is apparent.
Head in what direction you like,
fiction, biography, history, all point
out the change that has taken place
in the behavior of the young. Gta
dually that respect, and veneration
for age, and parentage, seems to be
dying out. And what is wortc,
with' it are coins the respect for
Bocial observances, for the sacred-
ncss of a man's word, for that
nobility of character which the truly
Every day you hear the quotation
' dollars and cents." "What is that
man's religion? "only a question
of dollars and cents," what is a
bond? "onlv a question of
dolhus and cents." And so on
with every relation to which the
human being is subject, all aro
summed ill) in the words " dollars
and ccul-." We havu lost truth,
honesty, diligence, love of duty,
right living, conscience, and all the
other moral virtues, and in their
place we have this universal motive
" dollars and cents."
We blame newspapers a good deal
for this, especially the comic papers,
as they have produced a habit of
treating serious and sacred things
with incwivnce, and 'of making fun
of tlie.ni, s that our boys and girls
are habituated to think of these
things iiglitly. What then can bJ
expected, wien, even from infancy,
tbo young arc trained, -o to speak,
in a disregard for all those things
which make life ically uorllt living
to the true man.
We propose a remedy for this
state of affairs. Let there be more
con.i h-ration fur the feelings of
other-. Let, as in the good old days,
a man's word be as sacred as his
bond. (Nnw-a-ilays a man thinks
that, if he can even gel out ol that,
lie will be regarded as smart man, a
person to be imitated.) Let the
young ii! trained to think that an
employer has as much right to con
uideratiou as themselves; that a
man has no right to have his
work without uotico and his em
ployer in the lurch ; that old age,
although not always venerable, still
carries with it an amount of experi
ence, which the young are bound to
respect. And, while wo preach thus
to the young ones, let us take good
heed ourselves, that we more readily
acknowledge that a man can be
actuated by motives of truth, honor,
probity, conscience, adherence to
his word, &c, that all men are not
actuated by motives of personal ad
vantage; and tin) shall soon
hear little of the complaint that
younger member ot the community
do not respect the older and that
they are too fond if having their
employers without notice and so on.

"King Kalakaua, of the Sandwich
Islands, has lately had his palace
thoroughly cleaned and knlsomincd,
and is about to put entirely new fur
niture into the front parlor and the
second story front bedroom the one
in which His. Majesty usually sleeps.
Ho has sent to Boston for his furni
ture, and among the other articles
are two thrones. " It is to
be hoped that our inventive Boston
furniture manufacturers will be able
to show King Kalakaua something
new in thrones. Here is a splendid
opportunity for American inventive
genius. A throne that can at a mo
ment's notice be converted into a
card table, a side-board, or a billiard
table ; that can be used as a travel
ling trunk, a bathing house, or a gas
tank, and that can hold a gross of
champagne bottles and one hundred
pounds of ice, would do honor to
the manufacturer and would leave
the King nothing to desire." JF.Y.

of the stem ; thence to the forecastle,
where there were ten of the crew in
different attitudes, some sitting and
some standing. All alike were ren
