Idleness. jg .
There is too much idleness in this
country, lt is breeding vice und rru
ruoralit}'. It is filling our jails with
criminals. Crime bas been on the
gradual increase for six months.
This comes of idleness; and idleness
comes in a great measure of that
abominable idea that a white man
cannot be a gentleman and work.
He must get money, for that is indis?
pensable. But haw? That's it Young
men have not the disposition to work,
.nd by patient economy secure a
basia "for business operations. They
must have it now. This suggests ex?
pedients. These lead to temptation ;
and temptation leads to crime. Hence,
we have murders, horse thefts and
breaches of trust.
Why should a young mau consider
it degrading or even undignified to
work? President Johnson purchased
his present residence in East Ten?
nessee with the proceeds of his labor
as a tailor. One of the wealthiest
bankers in New York commenced the
-world as a gardener, selling to the
huckster the products of his own
labor. Gen. Pat. Cleburn, at ono
time the head of the Arkansas bur,
subsequently the ruling spirit in a
powerful army, began life as a day
laborer. Judge Reagan, Postmaster
General of the late Confederate
States, was once a wood-chopper on
the banks of the Mississippi. The
world is full of such examples. But
where can we point to a successful
man who spent his early youth in
hunting business which he considered
to be more genteel than manual labor?
Who has ever heard of a man suc?
ceeding who spent his early manhood
"waiting for something to turn up?"
Young man, if you would succeed,
go to work. If you cannot obtaiu a
clerkship, take something else. You
had better be rolling barrels, or plow?
ing, or building fence, or chopping
cord-wood, or carrying the hod, than
doiug nothing. Quit depending upon
your friends. Strike out for yourself.
Learn at onco the greatest of all les?
sons, that of self-reliance. Have a
head, a will, a purpose of your own.
Go to work and watch your opportu?
nity. The soil upon which you have
been reared never refuses a compe
tence to those who are willing to dig.
Then, if ycu can do no better, dig. Il
will pay to dig. Nor is there any?
thing undignified or vulgar in it. Il
is honorable, if you Aoose to make
it so. Thou dig aud watch your op
portunity. But don't stand idle, an?
"wait for something to turn np."
Condensation, says a contempc ry
is the new order of the day in new*
paper literature. The history wind
the world is making speaks to us b}
the hour in brief and pithy sentence;
aloug thc telegraph wire, whethei
through the air or nuder the almost
fathomless waters, and no old-fash
ioned modes of conducting news
papers can resist such a renovatioi

Thcoppononts of tho Philadelphia
Convention continue to harp on the
exclusion of Messrs. Yallandigham
and Wood, as evidence that the South
ought net to have participated iu the
proceedings <>f that body. The fol?
lowing extract of a letter published
in the New York News, from John
Forsyth, delegate at large from Ala?
bama, throws sonic light on thc sub?
"I take the occasion to deny, with j
emphasis, the statement iu this '
morning's Herald, that Mr. Yallan?
digham was notified by the Southern j
delegations that if he did not quietly j
withdraw they would vole him out.
lt is impossible to conceive a more
odious and damaging imputation
upon Southern delegations than thia.
What! turn upon a man who had !
suffered imprisonment, persecution !
and exile, for sympathizing with our ?
sufferings and trials! If there was
one wretch so hearties', from the
South, I am happy to say I did not
and ueycr wish to know him. My
own views and sense of duty were
very eleni1, ami 1 believe they were
those, of every Southern gentleman !
in the Convention. It was, that wc j
could not, in personal honor or con- t
science, and with a due regard to the j
honor and conscience of our consti
tuents, vote to unseat a gentleman
whose right to ;i seat was patented to
him In the gallant Democracy of
Ohio, was as good as our own. and
whose only disability was that he was '
our friend iu trouble. Under thc
call for the Convention he had a clear I
right, for its theory was amnesty for |
the past and fidelity to a common
patriotic object in the future. Jt, was
upon this theory that we of thc
South were there, and it was foreign
to thc objects and fatal to the effects j
expected to be produced, to begin
thc work of peace and harmony by j
persecuting und punishing for past
political differences. I would not,
and could not, have remained an in
ahmt in that Convention if any
Northern delegate like Messrs. Yal?
landigham or Wood, properly ac
credited, had been unseated by vote. ;
lt was not the banquet to which we :
were invited, and we should have
gone home with the reflection that
the North is not yet ready for peace
and restoration. lint happily and
nobly, on their part, these gentle?
men saw thc rock and removed it out
of the path of harmonious action.
Thu Convention became a great suc?
cess, and Northern gentlemen tell inc :
it is doing groat good and working
well for the cause of re-union. 1
trust so for the common weal, for this :
has become a Northern ?us well as
Southern question. There is danger
that the disunion malady may become
chronic, aye and infections, and it
would be a singular spectacle to be?
hold thc North lay down its thousands
of millions cd' treasure and pour out
its blood in rivers to prevent tin
seceding South from breaking up the
empire of States, und then, being
victorious, to turn round and detuve
and perpetuate thc event they took
up arms to avoid. In truth, in thc
late war. both belligerents have so
far failed of their objects. The
South struck tor independence and
failed to attain it. The North armed
I and invoked her nationality to save
the Union, and, up to this time
fifteen months after every Confede?
rate arm has been grounded-she has
! failed in its attainment. The oppo
! nen ts of the Union in the South arti
beaten, sincerely accept the armed
; political solution and arc ready and
anxious to gather around the old
hearth, and. when permitted, to
. 'rally around the dag.' Al! we ask is
! fair play, fidelity to the principles
I upon which thc North appealed to
j arms h. the fact? of the world, and
I upon which we laid our - down, ?ind
I that when we d > conic in, wc enter
, by the broad stairway rind the front
! door to the temple of the Union,
\ with heads erect, in the consciousness
! Hutt wc have done nothing in all our
struggle, on land or water, to bring a
[ blush to thc cheek of American inan
! lc ?od. This done, and Von will

Since thc publication of the origi?
nal cull for thc Soldiers' Convention,
at Cleveland, a large number of
i names of soldiers, ol' all ranks, during

stant he responded, showing why ho
could not accept, and speaking of thc
national finances as follows:

people have cause for congratulation
that our finances are in so healthy a
Condition as thev are.

ever produced in the United States.
Nothing can look more luxuriant than
the fields of growing corn that cover
thousands of acre? in the vallie? of
tho Ohio and Missouri Rivers, where
one-half of the entire crop in thc
United States is produced. A writer
in ono of the Western papers calcu?
lates that, as a bushel of corn cou
tains sixty solid }>ounds of grain, the
crop of the current year, even if it
should not exceed 80,000 bushels, will
amount to 4,800,000,000 pounds of
grain, besides an equal weight in fod?
der. The value to the country of
such an aggregate of agricultural
wealth, springing from a single crop,
is not easily conceived. Though

Act of Congress and an acquiescence
of lialf a century. Wo shuuld hurt
the reputation of oin- country, and
ir--, are accused already of (he Repub
, Hean tendency of reducing all Execu?
tive j>ower tutu the legislative^ and
making Congress- a national Conven?
tion. These were the words of wis?
dom thirty years ago. Are they less
wise to-day, and in the face of the
open, undisguised efforts of the ra?
dical majority at Washington during
tho last session, to ruin tho reputation
of our country by making Congress
st! absolute and despotic "national
Convention?" There is not the
slightest roason for regarding the
President's control of his Executive
subordinates as a matter open to
question, and the audacious attempt
of a petty official at Philadelphia to
defy the Chief Magistrate should be
settled at once by a squad of police?
men. Any person pretending to ex?
ercise the fnnctions of an Executive
officer in defiance of tho orders of
the Exeeutive-in-Chief, is simply an
intruder upon thc office which he oc?
cupies, and to be thrust out of doors
as summarily as he would be from
the cashier's desk of a hunk which
he should usurp, or from tho box of
a stage-coach w hich he should under?
take to drive, after being ordered
down by the lawful proprietors.
[Keir York World

1 am instructed by the delegation

the simple possibility, we take great
pleasure in presenting tho nome of

add, that it is endorsed by every mem?
ber of the delegation from illinois,
with one or two exceptioas.
