Restlessness is one of the ehurao
teristius of the human mind. No
one, but an idiot, can have a mind
at rest. It is well enough to say,
sometimes, that a person is thought
less, but this never conveys the idea
of absolute mental inactivity. What
ever the constitution of the mind is,
it cannot exist, in a healthy btatc,
without being occupied. With no
other matter to engage it. it turns
in upon itself and becomes a wreck.
The unfortunate victim of nothing to
think about is apt to go mad ; and
so is the not less unfortunate victim
of circumstances, who has too much
to think about. The happy medium
is when a person can engage his
- . thoughts to the full without getting
' beyond his own capacity to think.
Activity of mind produces action.
If there is no action, there is no
evidence that the mind is exerting
itseft otherwise than in a very weak
ly manner. And the more activity
there is in the realm of mind, the
more results appear in the prosecu
tion of the various enterprises of
human life. People who are inces
santly thinking, planning and dis
cussing are generally the same peo-
pie who arc executing. Such people
are never satisfied. The success of
one project only whets their appetite
for still further achievement. Their
only hopes of being satisfied with
their present condition lie wholly in
their determination to getaway from
it. If they are pleased, they are
certain to devise some scheme which
they they think will yield them an
increased measure of satisfaction.
If they are defeated ; like the North
American Indian "they won't stay
thrashed." Defeat must be retrieved.
Success must go on to greater suc
cess. There is no land flowing with
milk and honey so plentifully as to
repress the suggestion that some
other region yields nature's wealth
in yet greater abundance. The dis
covery of some great truth in science
becomes a new lever for overturning
the elements of nature to uproot
additional revelations. Fresh tri
uniphs won by art are but evidences
of the unlimited possibilities within
her reach. The engineer who bridges
a chasm in the mountains cannot
sleep until he has demonstrated the
practicability of stretching a highway
across the continent. The nation
that secures a good political consti
tution, after perhaps a bloody strug
gle, is forthwith in a hotbed of agita
tion until it is amended, improved,
re-amended and amended again.
Such is the nature of the human
mind, never at rest, never satisfied,
but ever btriving after something
greater, and something better. And
it is among those races of mankind
the most clearly distinguished by
theso features of never-ceasing rest
lessness that civilization had its
origin, and became an aggressive,
irresistible, and expansive force in
the world. In those regions, wiierc
both sacred and profane history re
cord the most vigorous developments
of mental activity, there the rising
star of empire appeared in the hori
zon and thenceforth moved lcsist
lessly forward on its western way.
Tho Aryan migration of prehistoric
times formed tho nucleus of the
great empires of Greece and Koine.
The mental activity of tho Greek
and the Roman has come rippling
down the iigea in clear Jiuopitl streams
of inimllnlilc homily ami richness.
Though with thorn,
" Rol(-nlMfinont pnxetl llir wny
Tor villain bond- and dwpnl nwaj ."
yd, from them omnnntcil the fiery
mental nclivily that, to thin day,
makes the eloquent air of every col
lege hall in the world " breathe,
burn with Cicero."
The infusion of a new life into the
cogitntions of the lenders of the pub
lic mind of Kurope in the sixteenth
century brought about those up
heavals Hint culminated in tho wreck
of thrones and the crash of falling
empires. Mind came in coutact
with mind, finding n ready medium
of communication in the then recent
discovery of the ml of printing.
Hoary headed theories in politics and
religion vanished like chaff before
the whirlwind. Statesmen thought
out new systems of political organ
isation. Tho people thought out
new principles of individual respon
sibility aud social reform. Mind
acquired momentum. It be came a
vital force to be fell whether recog
nized or not. The puritan fathers
thought out tho specifatious for the
erection of a temple of liberty, and
being denied a site for the building
on English soil, carried their plans
to Plymouth rock. "Well pleased
were their descendants after two
hundred years' building to sec the
bcaliful proportions of the edifice.
Hut they were not satisfied. Koposc
in the shade of the great structure
they were rearing, they could not.
They had heard of a noble race in
the islands of the far Pacific to whom
the golden sceptre of truth had not
yet been held out. To think of that
race perishing for lack of knowledge
in their inler-occan home, was to
devise, and to execute measures for
their instruction and elevation. The
results o'f their action arc seen
and felt to-day. The mind
of the irrepressible Aryan race
has diffused itself over the Ameri
can continent, and been engraft
ed on tho manners and institu
tions of Ilawaii-nei. Life and pro
perty and public morals arc under
tho protection of tiie laws. The
evidences of enterprise and industry
appear in every direction. "With all
these favorable surroundings, every
subject of his majesty, whether
native or foreign, has good reason
to be well pleased. Bui to acknow
ledge themselves perfectly satisfied,
the people of this Kingdom, in the
face of the facts cited above, would
acknowledge themselves destitute of
mind. If the political constitution
is good better than it was fifty
years ago there is just so much tho
more reason to believe that a belter
constitution can be attained. Tho
moral results of past efforts furnish
us with more and better material for
raising the moral tone "of the com
munity to a higher and purer stand
ard. What has been accomplished
in education proves the practicability
of establishing a system of popular
education on a broader and freer
basis. Jicquiescut in puce is written
only over the dead ; but Excelsior
is the motto of development, pro
gress and reform in the affairs of the
