THE DAILY EVENING TELEGRAPH PHILADELPHIA FRIDAY, JUNE 30, 1871.
LOVE OF CHILDREN.
From the- London Saturday Review.
Of all tbe qualities for which a human
being can be admired, perhaps there is none
that strikes ns as more thoroughly amiable
than a love of children. If it were possible
to construct a moral saeetaarometer for noea
STirLng the degree of inherent sweetness in a
man's nature, we should probably discover
that it varied alniot.t directly as the sympathy
which be felt for very young infants. Human
beings have fortunately or unfortunately, as
the case may be developed no peculiarity
more decisively as civilization advances than
power of concealing their feelings. Bitter
eiperiencehas taught them to be scrupulously
reticent in the matter of infants.
Were it not for that ciroumstance,
we might obtain a very fair estimate
of the amiable propensities existing
in various persons by presenting to them a
baby under six months old, and observing
bow they were affected by it. The most sen
sitive would have their benevolent affections
raised to boiling-point, whilst the more stolid
would Bink far below zero. And yet, admit
ting this as a fact of experience, we may
perhaps ask without offense whether there is
ny justification for the sentiment on grounds
of pure reason. Why should we be called
upon to love a small lump of fat and gristle
with an infinitesimal infusion of soul rather
than a fully developed human being ? Some
people might answer that a child is more
innocent than a grown-up man. In
one sense of the word this is undoubtedly
true, but it is the sense in which innocence
ceases to be a recommendation. We do not
admire an idiot because be has not maintained
any theories destructive of all genuine reli
gion, or even a rich man because he has not
shown any marked propensity to steal. Inno
cence is good in so far as it implies a resolute
resistance to temptation; but if the innocent
person is altogether beyond the reach of a ay
temptation, he so far ceases to be inte
resting. A baby has not shown a marked
propensity for spirituous liquors; but then
it has been reduced to a llobson's choice
in regard to its consumption of
food; it has not displayed homicidal tenden
cies, but it has abstained from committing
murder for the best of all possible reasons.
To love any one for a pure negative, for not
being malevolent when he or she is equally
free from benevolence, seems to imply a pal
pably erroneous inference. And therefore,
so far as the sentiment is to be estimated by
its accordance with reason, the baby-hater
would seem to have just as good a justifica
tion as the baby-lover, and the only sensible
frame of mind would appear to be a complete
indifference to these rough draughts of hu
manity. We should wait till the features
become more pronounced, and till we ban tell
whether the soft mass of breathing and mov
ing flesh and blood is more likely to develop
into a Nero or a St. Paul.
Another form of the argument is, that we
ought to be more aff ected by the sight of
infant suffering. That we are in fact more
easily moved is undeniable; the sight of a
starving child, or even of a child afliioted by
some purely trilling sorrow, is undoubtedly
more affecting than that of a grown-up man
Buffering far more serious calamity. And
yet again we must ask whether this sentiment
can be justified in cold blood ? A child, it is
said, has done nothing to deserve the ago
nies of hunger under which it
is suffering. But who can say whether
a grown-up man deserves the pain a bit more
fully? Take an unlucky pauper, gradually
sinking under ill-treatment till he becomes
the subject of a sensation paragraph in the
newspapers. Why should we care for him
less than for one of the wretched infants who
are gradually put out of the way in a biby
f arming establishment? lie deserves it, it
may be said; but how? Was he ever brought
up to understand the duty he owes to man
kind? Was he ever brought up to be indus
trious, or prudent, or independent? So far
as we can tell, he is the victim of external
circumstance just as much as the
helpless infant which perishes , before
it has bad the opportunities of learning which
have never come to its elders. Why should
we be less moved when the tragedy has been
protracted over sixty years, instead of being
acted within a tenth part of the same num
ber of months ? If anything, our sympathies
should be due rather to the victim of defective
social arrangements who has Buffered long
est and been most fully conscious of his
misery. Yet, as a fact, most people would
feel far more deeply moved, and we should
generally admit that they ought to
be more deeply moved, by the story
of tortures inflicted upon helpless in
fants than by that of much greater tortures
inflicted upon adults who in all but name
are equally helpless for all practical pur
poses. If it is amiable to feel more strongly
in proportion to the degree in whioh a suf
ferer is incapable of sharing our thoughts
and responsibilities, why should we draw the
line at infants ? The range which we give to
our sympathies seems tobe strangely capri
cious. Sensible people are fond of a child as
soon es it begins to talk intelligibly, but do
not care much for children who are below or
much above that limit. A boy of ten or
eleven is a noxious being in the eyes of many
who are profoundly affected by the sight of a
child just able to totter about on uncertain
limbs. More amiable people go a little fur
ther, and are fond even of an infant in arms;
bnt then, for the most part, they draw a hard
and fast line between children and monkeys.
Why, if we are profoundly touched by the
attempts of a child to imitate grown-up
people, by the
Fragments of his dream of human life,
Soaped by himself with newly-learned art,
should we be simply disgusted when our poor
relations try to do tbe same thing? A monkey,
with a grotesque appearance of being little
lower than a negro, nils many benevolent
people with intense repugnance: the infant,
who has yet developed scarcely any faculties
that it does not possess in common witn tue
lewer animals, affects them to tears by similar
indications of nascent intellect. Sympathy
does not seem to increase in any intelligible
ratio to the resemblance of its object to
ourselves. We are delighted with a baby be
cause it is like ns; we are disgusted with a
monkey because it is like us in a slightly in
ferior degree; and we are pleased again with
dog because it shows some traces of an in
tellect such as our own, though at a still more
remote distance. How are we to discover a
formula which will acoouut for these vagaries
of feeling, and bhow why the successive terms
of a continuous series produce alternately
loathing and delight?
We might possibly, if it were worth while,
suggest some reasons for tbe phenomenon;
but there is at least one which will scarcely
bear inspection. We are not biassed by the
intrinsic merits of tbe animal. Lord Palmer
tton produced much scandal and a good deal
of amusement by promulgating the herMcl
tLtory that all people are boru good. With
out tliwciifbing th ttieological bearings of lhin
doctrine, we may at W-t say that it will
burdly bear inspection from a scientific point
of view. Rudimentary vices are as con
spicuous in little children as rudimentary
irtues. Let anybody observe -candidly a
child of two or three years old. There is
scarcely any defect which it would not be
possible for an unprejudiced person to dis
cover. Such a child may be benoveleat,
courageous, and conscientious acoording to
its little lights. But certainly it is also very
apt to be sensual, selfish, and spiteful, and to
show these qualities with a frankness which
generally disappears in later life. It is
greedy without blushing; it will appropriate
the belongings of its little brothers and sis
ters with the utmost coolness; and it will
tell lies as soon as it begins to discover what
is the use of language. Painters generally
please themselves by portraying infant saints
and martyrs; but if they were anxious to in
dulge in realistic representations they would
have no trouble in finding models for infant
Judases, Cains, or Sapphiras. We generally
excuse the misdeeds on the ground that our
infant darlings know no better; but,
if we insisted on strict impartiality,
the same argument would take
all the merit out of their virtues. Children,
indeed, sometimes develop the failings ot an
advanced civilization with a precocity which
is rather amusing. Thackeray, than whom
nobody was a greater lover of children, some
where relates an instructive anecdote. Half-a-dozen
children are playing with a puppy,
and manufacturing mud-pies. To them enters
a companion, and exclaiais, "Mary Jane,
your sister has found a penny." Straightway
tbe puppy is put down as if it were so much
dress, the mud-pies are abandoned, and the
little band of courtiers gathers round the in
fant millionaire and accompanies her to the
apple-stall. Were not these infants in course
of preparation if only the Fates were pro
pitious to appear in some future Book of
SMALL-POX IN NEW JEIiSEY.
An Alarming Stnte of Affair In Orange A
ScumUou In Newark,
In the pretty town of Orange, five miles dis
tant from Newark, the absorbing topic of con
versation just now is small-pox and its alarming
spread In the place. As in Newark, there is a
law requiring all persons stricken down with the
dieeaee to be reported by the physician to the
health authorities, bat as in Newark, they do as
they please, and they don't please to report.
Tho cases that are reported are entered in a
book, and this is kept under lock and key from
tbe lynx-eyed newspaper reporters, lest they
might publish the facts and do what the board
does not do give people proper warning as to
the locality of tbe disease, and how to avoid
coming in contact with it. As it is people are
in an indescribable state of dread, Imagining
that matters are ten times worse than is really
The town authorities of West Orange are
taking great pains to keep the disease from
spreading in their limits. A hospital has been
provided, and vaccination provided lor and
ordered in every proper case.
.Newark, too, is 6till agitated about the epi
demic. Yesterday one Patrick Murphy turned
up in tbe office of the Overseer of the Poor in
quest of alms. At a glance it was discovered
thai he was covered with small-pox 6ores. He
stated that he had come from Belleville in a
horse-car crowded with people, and that he was
in search of a doctor. lie further stated that a
week ago he emigrated to New Jersey from
New York. He was promptly removed to the
Small-pox Hospital and his companions marched
back to the metropolis. The greatest anxiety
is felt in Newark and Belleville to know which
car it was they rode in N. Y. Ilerald, to-day.

The proceeds of all sales of lands are required to

bonded debt before it falls due.
Holders of U. S. Five-twenties, who wish to con
