From the Norwich Aurora.
No class of men in thi. country toil as
hard and receive as little lor;their labor as
'editors and publishers of newspapers.
Au outlay at the cotmmenrement, iii some
cases, of thousands of dollars for material
wherewith to'establish their publicatiunst
in addition to heavy advances for paper,
help and other expenses, makes together
a sotn, which it invested in almost any
other business, would with comparatively
little lubor. yoi-i at prolir suffici -t for a
t. ing, and fornish netcitnng (or the sup
port and comforts of old age. The pu'i
lish:r of a new.-paper, in the various du
ties n hich lie has to perform as editor,
&c., rise early, and takes rest late-lie is
always on the lookout for somethiz:g to in
struct or amuse-he lives out as other
nen--he has no time for relaxation, and
yet he seldom gets rich, or has rouey
enough at all times fur a comfortable pros
ectouni of his business. Why is it so?
The seller of that which only adorns the
body, grows rich;-the manufacturer of
gew gaws, and persona engaged in the
various other trades and professions, grow
rich-the dealer in alcoholic drinks, who
furnishes that which is destructive of peace
here and hereafter, grows rich, while the
editor toils and toils for the good of his
fellow men. until old age creeps upon him
unawares, and he drops into die tomb,
without, in many cases, leaving sufficient
to defray the expenses of a decent burial.
We ask again. n by is it so! How is
it that lie who labors for thousands, who
duos so much to please, instruct and bene
fit mankiud -the daily or weekly exhibi
tion of whose efforts are looked after and
devoured with greedy appetites by- the
multitude, should thus he made to stug.
gle under the weight of pecuniary diffi
culties when others sho-e occupations are
divested of all that is noble, yea whose
buiness is a curse to the community, are
prosperou.' The aner is plain and
simple. It is in consequence of the dis
honesty of newspaper subscribers
We hate known a man to neglect to
pay his bill for a newspaper which has
teen a nelcomne visitor to his dwelling fur
years-the companion of his lo:iely nife
the instructor of his children-when du-.
ring the same time lie ha drank ten and
perhaps twenty tines the amount in in
toxicating drinka! Yes, virtually refuse
to pay for that which has afforded lusttuc
tion and entertainnent, and appropriate
the amount to the payment of alcoholic
liquor-thus robbing the editor and en
riching the ruin seller! Others will pay
every other debt before they will pay for
their papers-while others never intend to
pay, if they can possibly avoid doing so.
Every expedient is resorted to for the putt
pose of procrastinating the settlement of
their bills. the most cuttmon excuse te
ing "I have hot had the paper regularly."
It matters not that a carrier. in defiance
of storms, has never failed to appear at
the door of the subscriber, amd fui hfully
depo.iced within the paper, or that the 1t
bor of parking anti nailing is punctu:ally
performed by the elitur himself; if per
chance, the paper by any tneans escapes
the person for whom it i-s intended. in a
single instance, itis deemed by many ant
excuse sutficient to refuse the payment of
six months suhscriltion. or perhaps the
repudiation of the a5 hole bill. We might
fill a column of our paper nith' a descrip
tion of the petty tricks of dishonest suh
scribers to avoid the payment of their
honest dues. and give nites of individu
alt who have thus disgraced themselves,
but for the present we foirbear. Theire is
oue trick, however whii-h we cannot
help, noticinig; and th~is is, the practice of
receiving a newspap~er b~y tnail or othier
wise, unitil a debt is incurred of six,
twelve, or twenity four months subscrip

Legitimate Steam Engines and Steam

one interested in the progress of events in
this city, to go to pier No 4 .North river.
Thev ,will there see time knocked into a
cocked bat, at least so far as loading ships
is concerned. The large ship Rissell
Glover is. at that pier, and Captain How
es began the operation of Idading her one
day last week. While his stevedores
were engaged in the slow process of
stowing away the cargo, alive Yankee,
scanning five feet eight inches in his
bouots, stepped dp to Captain Howes and

tinme to load a ship, with thet are men,

"Why, yes," replied the captain; "it
takes sowe time, but we cannot do it any
'-You don't say so," said the Yankee.
"W ell, I will tell you what it is, I can
load this ship in a day, and no mistake."
"You can!" exclaimed Captain Howes,
giving the Yankee a look, and putting on
one his most comical smiles.
"Yea," continued the Yankee. "I
have got a -critter that will throw them
goods into your ship in less than no time;
and I guess I'll try, if you have no objec
"None in the least," said the. Captain,
looking rattier dubiously on the Yankee.
"If you wish to bead the ship you can."
Early next mbrning, much to the aston
ishment of Captain Howes, who. though
he should never see the Yankee agian, a
curious looking machine, somewhat like
a locomotive in appearance, came down
to the.pier, with the live Yankee oa top
getting up steam. He run it close up to
the ship, arranged the tackle and corn:
menced hoisting in the cargo with a puff

stevedores, had time to collect together
their scattered senses. And there the lit
tle steam engine, attended by the Yankee,
is-vow at work,, pulling as saucily as a
locomotive, tipping bales and boxes into
the hold of the Russell Glover, almost a
ton weight at each puff, w'th nore case,
with greater facility, and three times Us

do before the live Yankee made the ac

In connection with this machine, in
the annihilation of time and labor, there is
one for the construction of rail roads that
far exceeds it in power and utility: This
is called the "Excavator;" and we saw it

Power of Music on Nightingalea-In
t.he gardeus of Dilgusha. at Shiraz, in
Persia, nightingales are said to abound.
which not only sing during the night, hut
whose plainttve melody is not by day
suspended in the East, as in our colder
region; and it is said that several of those
birds have expired while contending with
musicians in . the loudness or variety of
their notes. It has, indeed, been known,
according to Pliny. that in vocal trials
among nightingales, the vanquished bird
terminated its song only with its life.
An intelligent Persian, who repented
this story amain. iiiid Peiniilted iris to
write it down from his lips, declared that
he had more than odco been presetu
when a celebrated lutanist, Ilirza Mo
hammnted. surnamed lialtab, was playing
to a large company in a grove near Shi
raz. where he distinctly saw the nightin.
gales trying to yie with the musician;
sometimes warbling on tlie trees, front
branch to branch. as if they wished to
approach the instrument whence the -nel
ody p:oceeded; and at length, dropping
on the grodtd in a kind of eesta1Cy frot
which ho assured me they were ston rai
sed by a change in the mode. And in
one of Strada's Academical Prolusions
we find at beautiful poem which tends to
cotlirt the Persian, reports fdr it suppo
sea the spirit of cumulation so powterful'in
the nightingale, that, having strained her
little throat, vainly endeavoring to excel
the musician, she breathes oat her life in
one last effort. and drops upon the instru
ment thich had contributed to her defeat.

from the Greenock Advertieer the follosr
ing paragraph relating to an expedition to
the Southern-sens in search of riches in
the hape of manure for the soil:
"For some tiie past " kind of secret
expedition has been fitting out at this port,
and the vessels that have alleady ailed
are under scaled oriler-s, hhich are no, to
be ope-ned until the ships have, reached a -
given latitude and tilgitude across the
line. In spite of the ecrecy that has
been observed, It is dow becoming well
known that the the expedition has sailed
for an island said to be somewhere to the
east of the.Cape of dood Hope; and the.
speculation is likely to bt not mdoly a l:u-;
crative one of those engaged in it, but
will be of immense benefit to the agricul

is said that the island in question contains.
Guano of a richer description tho any -
hitherto known here. Several 4esls

inpleteuts, of every desaciption, and mo

carrying the cargo from the shore to the

pickaxes, &c. A number of other ships,
all of large burthen, are about to fellow.
In London and Liverpool, vessels are- -
fitting out for the same destination, butt.
the Clyde shippers have had the siarr,

If. then. that lo"er demand why Stingo
rose against ard-nt spirit+, this is my ad
swer; not that I loved ardent spirits less,
but that I loved heitlah and a sound consti
tu:ion more. Had you rather the ardent
spirts were ruling and die all rum burnt
knaves, ian that ardent spirits were edd.
demned, to live stoit, hardy, yeoiden?
As ardent spirits we're pleasant, I ranted
them ; as they tere exhilarating, I sipped
them ; asthaey recruied my spirits. I drank
therm ; bin as they were ruin ous, I speded
them. There are tastes for their pleasat
ness, sips, for their exhilaration, drams
for their tecuitiog power, out banishment
and detestation for their ruinous tenden
cy. Who ii here so brutal as woutld be A*

If any, let fever speak his burning rage

of their banishment Is recorded on the pri.

for which they were biatrished.
