CULTIVATE THE MIND.
A HOME TRUTH—ORIGINAL.
The cnrticitics of the human miiul nro so
great, so vast ia tlio ninount of liJiowlede
it lr.nr require, that we pause in wonder ntul
tisk, "Why is it that wo Ct.d the mrtsa tf
iniuiltiriil so ij!iori!it ur.d besotted, grovel
lip.j; in tlio dust fcs it were, eenrte caring to
lot tlieir cyos look over the vast fields of
light and knowU'ge, in which they might be
reaper?, sc;v.e knowing a thottyht, cave
that which rc'atos to what they may cat,
drink ami wear?" For them no stars gleam
in tlio intellectual sky; for them no peans of
triumphant music are borne upon the breeze.
They seem to know bat liltle of inner life,
of the hidden genu of giralnoss which lies
within them, nnd to care less. They h';r
not, they e:u'0 net, f;r the fit ill small voice
wil'iin. wl.ieh is urging them to hoher and
better tilings. Hear not, did I Ray? Ah,
yes! there is a time in every human bein;;'s
life when the higher nature will ptin the
ascendency; but alas! it is often like the flit
ting gleam of the sun-benms upon the water
u ripple upon the oeeau o moment, and
they are gone.
How beautiful, how cheering the thought
that we arc not all of earth, that tho mind
(a. gem so delicate in its texture, ro brilliant
in its emanations,) will live forever! Glad
ly the immortal spirit grasps at tlus tho't;
hopefully it presses forward for a touch cf
inspiration from a higher world gives
strength to its wings, and on tho soul-propelling
breeze voices are borne: "bister,
brother, be of good cheer, press forward
with indomnitablc. courage, thou art not
working r.lcno for earth, but for heaven."
We are oft-times conscious of a something
existing within us which will not be bound
ed by earth, whien at all times threatens to
penetrate tho vail above us, find search in
to hidden misleries.
How .far our powers r-.nd capacities may
extend, it may not be ours to know, so mech
depends upon cultivation. Tho mind, which
will at first resemble the humble acorn, may
in time grow and expand like the majestic
oak, budding nnd branching, still yielding
f.uil for time and eternity. If it bo true
that tho mind is to live forever, and that
the body is to pass awpy, crumble to dust
in its mother earth, why csaU tho wants cf
tho body over those of the mind, and con
sider thorn of tho Prst importance? Ttue,
tho vpDts of the tor.y mint be attended to,
yet wc create for ouriselv03 many artificial
wants, to the detriment of both cur minds
and bod:es. This is net veil; we are thus
prostituting our higher natures to our lower.
Wo havo much to encourage us. The
past has sho-vr u.s what mind can do; the
present Las many discovctics and inven
tions; but the future; the gloriovs fnturo.
(that pine unsullied page, on which wc
should strive to impress our mark) may, if
wc ici'l it, unfold thoughts which are strug
gling for a ray of light amidst darkness and
obscurity thoughts soon giving placo to
deeds which will tell forever.
In the mansions of the human mind there
are many chambers; here and there, the
windows ore open, admitting tho sun light;
but many more are in the darkness, and al
most hidden by piles of rubbish which have
been accumulating for years. . Open! ch,
open! du.sk y hall.s, and 'let in tho sunbeams!
No sound, no light all is darkness, and the
weary owner lifts his carLh-c!ouded t-yes,
and murmurs: "The kev will not turn in the
lock; it matters little, there is nothing there
in." But tho f pub; 'toning angel replies:
"Not no, it is only the unskiilftdncss of the
hand which uses it. Arouse thee from thy
slothful ignorance, and reward will repay
thy exertions." But alas! many hearts make
no response, so the lute-low tones of the
spiril-voice are Lushed, and he p..srcs on
to another door, perhaps to meet with the
It is wisely ordered that wo must till the
soil of our minds ourselves; assistance we
may receive from others, but without our
own exertions nothing will be accomplished.
We must work with our own heads, hearts,
and hands, if we expect to got through tho
world honorably and nobly if wc expert
to writo our r.arncs in proud characters on
the scroll of tho future. Yes, wc must till
the ground, plant the seed, and wait patient
ly no, I mean work patiently, for results.
"Ah, we have not time to cultivate the
mind," t.ay many. What an assertion! Take
time; steal a few moments from your other
occupations; if you havo not time, it is be
cause you have wasted so much of it in yom
Yes, the mind must have eomething to
feed upon. If tho beautiful flowers, whose
seed God hath planted, are not cultivated,
rank weeds will i-pring up, and the waters
of bitterness will overflow the soul. No
. time! brother? Yet you can find time to
spend in useless games, in quarreling over
polities and worldly ulThirs, and too often
(to your shame be it said) in abusing the
other sex, to vhom you owe a debt of grat
itude, and wlioso errors you aro v many
wnya helping to perpetuate, by not encour
aging those who aro under your immediate
iufliienco and protection to lead a purer and
more intellectual life.
Woman, as she nov is, reeds a great deal
of encouragement. Thousands for the want
of it, have sunk far below what they might
have been. The mars need more ambition
properly directed. Cultivate your rcasoj
faculties, sister; 6tudy cause and effect,
and you will avoid many rocks on which
you aro now in danger of being stranded.
Woman ia too often tanght -that she is an
inferior being; that is, in mental capacity;
and we all know what effect oducat.on has
upon the human mind. Once impress per
sons with tlieir inferiority, teach them they
are inferior beings, and you destroy their
ambition, make thorn rowe, tools to work

alas! to often, here at this important period
in her intellectual struggle, a straive pys

taught to cor.si Jer Let-self woman, before

she thinks of other things. If the daughter
does not think of marriage, father and moth
er will be pretty sure to think cf it for her;
a chntiee presents itself "better talic it!"
(so reasons Lu'.f the wurkl,) "you may never
got another, nnd perhaps live and die an oi l
maid, and oh! Unit would be horrible!"
Ah, fund j events, could your daughter's
future life pass iu panoramic view before
your eyes, you would think there wet e some
conditions even worse than that of being an
old maid! Tho fretful, peevish wife, with
overtasked energies and ha',;"-porformod du
t'es, is very often the result of these early
m.rri:ig',s. liven if her homo education has
not been neglected, there are many duties
of which she knows nothing. Tho beauti
ful blossoms of early promise are clicked up
with the weeds of vexation and discontent,
and in time such ruiudn aro very apt not to

As we m irk the evr.nescr.r.t rays of such
aspiring ge nius, we lortn some idea of whet
rich legacies of thought such women would
have bequeathed to the world, what bright
stars they might have gleamed in the intel

minds were better matured before they took

This subject is universally acknowledged
to bo otic of the greatest importance, nlfeet

the present, but coming generations. In
reading the lives cf great men, we find that
in most cases, if not all, they have possess

Then lot us cultivate our minds. Tine,
wo have many barriers to oppose, nnoy ob

Senator Carlile on the Habeas
Hon. .Teh:t Carl ile, Senator from Virginia,
under the pew f-.laie government, gives bin
opinion on tho legality of the President's
action in suspending the writ of hapeaa
c.crpup, in following words;
"I believe the. President acted not only
within tho strict line of constitutional duty,
in icfusii g to acknowledge the command cf
the judiciary in the writs of habeas corpus
directed to the military who had in chargo
lb" bodies of those accused of treasonable
conduct, but if he had not done so.be would
have been untrue to tho Constitution and
his oath of office, lie is sworn to protect
defend the Constitution, aud to see that the
laws are faithfuly executed. If a conspiracy
exists tn destroy tho Constitution and ob
struct the due cxeeiitic n of the law?, it would
be very strange indeed if ho had not tha
right to priest and detain the conspirators,
but Lad the right to a.-semble armies, and
upon tho hold of battle to shoot not only tha
com pirat- is themselves but thousands of
others, tho dupes and victims of the origina
tors ol rebellion. It would be a libel upon
the illustrious authors of the Constitution,
to suppose thev wouid require of the Presi
dent muier the solemnities of an oath, tho
pel I'onnence of a duty and notto clothe him
with full and ample powers to keep his oath,
ihe maxim mt. rannu tilcnt leges, is as old
a.s the law itself, and was an well known to
the founders of our government, as it is to
