. These Hands Were Never Made to
M U KB II It,
This it no fancy sketch, but a lamentable truth.
Tha consequence is that the. dignity of human
labor baa been palled down, and used as a foot-
bell ; hence, we everywhere find young men shutt
ing the mechanic ; arts, tbe manufactory and the
plough, as they would avoid a pest-bouse Oiled
with small-pox. And hence, too, we jwetjwitb
idleness walking abroad at noon day without any
laudable excuse or fixed purpose, and exclaiming,
Ob I wrethed man that I am, who shall deliver me,
fbr "these bands wers never made to workl''1' Tbil
influence bas been transmitted from' generation to
generation1, until ' It has become as it Were, an in
herent principle. a part of our yery nature. , y
. It bas crowded'. tht narrow paths leadlnf to the
'"learned-(tho' much abused) professions with a
dense . mas of ' adventurers, pressing: on with
alacrity, but ' like all crowds, ' compdsed ' of
all girades- of.-. Intellect some- wUh. .. the
highest -order of . talent, . polished, by . education,
others with little education,' or Wholly Illiterate. .
That ktf should' arrive' at tha seati 'of learning Is
not wonderful ; but that to many should be re
turned with tha
blessing of their preceptors, bid
ding them God-speed among the' peoble, Is truly
astonuhing.. ;, i"'- -.j.
The entity profession of law, medicine, 'divini
ty, Ac are cloaks more easily pA on than that of
any other pursuit ia life. It hides from public gnze
the moral and intellectual defects of its professor,
while it. carries him.through tbe .crowd as though
he were a Solomon oe a Solon. The novice in
theology pours (itrth torrents of fire and brimstone
upon the heads of bis devoted congregation, up
holding h'm assumed, 'prerogative derivations from
the Greek an unknown language to tbe multi
tude. uTom,uonaiono." - Others talk of Escula
pius, of Hunter, of Rush . and, ' it may ,. be, of
Schmittcau. Of Blackstone, Bacon, Kent and
Chltty.'and' the masses areastbunded and bV
wildered at their transcendeaC learning and open
to them the gate which secures an undisputed
passport through all tbe avenue of polite social
HW. '80 wags' the-' world. We do not 'expect to
reform It but to amuse ourself by shooting at folly
as it flies,,.. On the. .other band it require a large
share of native' talent,' ind 'J'ears of mental and
bodily labor to become proficient in the mechanic
arts. No cloak can cover hi botch wore. It 1
like onto a city set upon an bill, which cannot be
hid, seen. aud known of all men, and cannot be re
moved until it decay.
It is a strange anomaly in our .nature or educa
tion that we behold (h 'stately 'and magnificent
ship coming into port, walking the waters like a
thing of life, ' and while every ; beholder is filled
with pride and an extacy of delight at the impos
ing spectacle, yet, tne men who brought it into ex
istence' are unVcown to fame; because, "their
hands rr made to work. '. The splendid mansion
with it gorgeous, furniture, i tbe pride and boast
of it rich and lordly possessor, yet tbe men wbote
genius planned, and Whose strength and Industry
reared it,' arc expected by the occupant to make
servile obeisance to his mora fortunate and dlgni
tied position.' ' And why 7 Because their hands
rer made towork. ' ''' '
Yet we are' proud to know, that there are those
mho da eotjrthrn4 tills matter in it tru lighi
men w-Jio exercise their roasoning faculties, prompt
ed by common sense know that it is not tha pro
fession or avocation that shed a balo around the
man. but that moral worth and talent sheds a bril
liant Juslcr on the occupaiion, , If it ba-: a. laudable
one. Talent U dispensed by tbe Creator to the
creature, according to bis will and pleasure, and
without respect to. persons. It 1 to be found on
the ihoenioker's bench and In tbe Court of King's
bench. In the poorman' lowly cabin and in tbe
palatial mansion of the rich, or it may be wanting
in eiibcr or all of them. It it Is the fret gift from
to Cod, whoniHoever beplcaseth to bestow it, and
who dure denv it. or even irainsav if.

main truck. It La been asserted that .Clarkiviltc
can- not become populous and thriving city until
manufacturing U established and Successfully
maintained. ' This 1 certainly the true is!tion.U
( endorse every won) it, , While it ia also true, that
w need "profuesionol" men, mbrdiSnta, tc, ke.
to constitute a grand whole, '' The latter, from the
nature of thing?, nc-KJ no fostering they 'will al
ways liike care of thtmselve and preserve, in tact,
their maximum number, ot that which I adequate
to tht wa'iu or necessities of tbe community..
have been advocating Southern manufactures theo
retically and prncticafly, for more than a quarter of
a century past ; but, at this day, fiud that we arc
fur in tbe rear of adverse public opinion that
niigbtyiengiue whhb Xrci.s lunrenio oOhtrol
which prostrates and crosSe but everything that
dare oppose it, and to avoid such catastrophe, we
are forced to step aside, . heboid and wonder, fully
ojnvlnced, by Tcason already adduced, and from
exisitlng circumstances, that homo manufacturing,
as il should be, in Clarksville and in the entire
South, is an utter Impracticability, and its ad
vocacy iy a few individuals without conceatrali.a.
of purpose, !s futile. ' But admit that manufacto

Tas UrA Tnxx Tbe story that tba Una tror
or the island ot Juva exhale a poisonous aroma.
the breathing ot which causes instant death, is
now known to be talae.. The tree itself secretes a
iulct wbkji is deadly poison, but it aroma or odor
is harmless. Strychnine is made from the seed of
the Upas tree. The story that there 1 a poisoned
valley in Japan where this tree grows is false. Such
is tbe name of a district, the atmosphere of which
produces death. The effect, however, is not occas
ioned by the Upas tree, but by an extinct volcand
near Uatar, called Uueva Upas. From the old era
ter 'ud adjoining valley is exhaled carbonic gas,
such a often -extinguishes life in this country, in
old wells and foul place. 1 This deadly atmosphere
kills every created thing which come within its
range bird', beast, and men. - By a confusion of
name, tbe poisonous effect of thi deadly valley
have been ascribed to the Upas tree. '
