'Democracy Is a senliracntnot to bo appalled,
corrupted or compromised. It knows no Baseness,
cowers to no danger, oppresses no weakness. Fear
less, generous and humane, It rcl)ukes the arrogant,
cherishes honor, and sympathises with the humble.
It aks nothing hut what It concedes; it concedes
nothing but what it demands. Destructive only of
despotism, it is the sole conservative of liberty, la-
oor and property . It Is the sentiment of freedom,
of equal obligations. It is the law of nature per
vading tba law of the land. The stupid, the scl
flfh, the base in spirit may denounce It as a vulgar
thing; hut in the history of our race the Demo
' cratlc principled developed and Illustrated the
highest moral and intellectual attributes of our
nature. Yes, this Is a noble, magnanimous, a sub
lime sentiment, which expands our affection?, en
larges the circle of our sympathies and elevates the
oul of man until, claiming an equality with the
best, ho -rejects as unworthy of his dignity any po
litical Immunities over the humblest of his fellows
1 Yes, His an ennobling principle; and may that
spirit which animated our fathers In the Revolution-

Its preservation." WILLIAM ALLEN.
OPEN TO THE MARKETS OF THE
The people of the Mississipi valley re
ceived tho announcement of the completion
of Capt. Ead's great undertaking at the
mouth of the Mississippi, with an indiffer
ence that is actually unaccountable. An
achievement that should have been cele
brated in tho roar of cannon and the loud
rejoicings of the multitude, is calmly recog
nized as a sort of matter ot course; the
newspapers called attention to it, and then
In referring to this strange indifference
the Scientific American says that it
is, relatively speaking, 60 long
since the American people became convinced
of the ultimate success of the splendid en
gineering enterprise just brought to saccess
ful conclusion at the mouth of the Mississip
. pi, that there isdangcr that tho immediate
credit due to Captain Eads may be popu
larly underestimated. Men are too apt to
forget that when he began the work he did
bo at his own risk, and in the face of strong
and persistent opposition from engineers in
high authority. They foritet that all along
ho has had to conquer not only tho com
merclal barriers at the mouth of our great
river, buf to do it hampered by severe re
sfrictions, even the payments for work done
being contingent on the approval of engin-
' eers whose greatest joy would be in his en
There is danger, ton, of forgetting tho
magnitude of the work, and the enormous
commercial possibilities tho scheme in
volves, as well as tho great power of tho
opposing local interests whoso prosperity
was endangered by every stroke done tow
ark opening the mouth of the Mississippi
to the free and easy passago of commerce.
Tho moral and financial victory won by
umt. Eads is accoriliniriy greater even
than his victory over material obstacles;
ind the later wero great enough to justify
our clawing the work among tho most dif
ficult, costly and courageous achievements
or nyorauuc engineering. In commenting
on the work, tho Tribune reminds us that
when the jotty compauy began
iu operations at South Pass, tho
commercial entrance to tho Mississippi was
t Southwest fuss, but only light draught
tcsseil were sure or getting in. A ship
drawing over sixteen feet was liable to cut
tuX on tho bar and remain there until she
' unloaded her cargo upon lighters. The
cost of unloading uud reloading and of the
long delay more than absorbed tho profits
of tho voyage. Besides the obstruction of
tliobar, which constant work by Govern
ment steam dredges for more than twenty
years had tailed to remove, there were the
curious mud-lumps which, heaving up from
fhe bottom outsidotho river's mouth, often
caught ships in their sticky embrace.
Southwest Tass was, however, tho main
channel, and tho only practical entrance for
cralt larger than fishing smacks, South
Fass had only six feet of water
on its bar, and Tuss a L'Outro and the old
Belize had long been closed. Tho govern
ment would not allow Captain Eads to
work upon Southwest pass, which, having
by far the greatest volume of water, was
most easily improvable. It was feared he
would ruin the poor channel existing there,
and so choke up tho river completely, lie
had to take South Tass, and was compelled
in order to get enough water in it, to throw
suuken mattresses across the heads of the
other passes. Then he had to conquer a
shoal at the head of South Pass, and stop
up an outlet through which a portion of
tho current escaped into the gulf. All this
was preliminary and additional to the real
jetty work, which consisted in building
two walls from the river's mouth straight
out into the gulf for a distance of nearly
three miles, to tho outer verge of tho bar
a wall that would resist the force of tho
current and the bufferings of the sea.
The river is now permanently open, and
its currents are so controlled that the
mighty stream will henceforty bo the chief
factor in keeping its channol clear of the
barriers it naturally tended to build up
against the commerce of tho world. When
the Mississippi valley harbors, as it soon
will, a more numerous population than the
whole country can boast of now ; when its
farms and factories are doing, as they soon
will, half tho productive work of the
world then it will be possible to form an
adequate idea of the industrial and com
mercial benefits to flow from the unbarring
of the outlet of what cannot fail to be the
artery of our national and international
trade. It is a great victory, and Capt,
Eads may be suro that popular apprecia
tion of its grandeur will grow with tho
growth of commerce which it makes possi
TAKE A TOUR REST YOURSELF,
Because we, individually, arc tied down
to the tread-mill of duty, with no expecta
tion ot a season of relaxation, we arc not of
those who hold that we should do nothing
but "make hay while tho sun shines."
While the thermometer ranges as now,
above tho 90's, the man who has enough
hay to answer ordinay needs, should lay
aside his scythe and pitch fork, and recre
ate until the sun shines less fiercely.
An individual of a philosophic turn, as
sumes that man must have rest and amuse
ment. His manhood degenerates into a
condition of selfish boorishness without
them. To confine the mind and body un
ceasingly to the business groove, is to blunt
the intellect and impair the vigor and tone
of tho body. Rest for both is essential,
and to argue yourself into tho notion that
the sleeping hours give that rest, is to con
vince yourself of a lie. A week or month's
rest and recreation in mid-summer, when
the mind has become sluggish and the phys
ical energies impaired, is, in tho economy
of nature, time saved. In discoursing upon
this subject, Royal Purcell states
a well known fact when he says that after
a season of recreation the mind resumes its
accustomed channels of thought, with in
creased vigor with a strength and tone
that divests tho burdens of life of half their
weight; that smoothes tho rough places,
and straightens out paths that were former
ly most perplcxingly crooked. Besides
rest, the mind needs amusement. Rest
gives mental vigor and sharpens tho powers
of penetration. "Tho hour spent in social
talk with friends is not thrown away, it not
only makes one agreeable to his associates,
but it also benefits him individually. It is
a rest that all should take, and the physical
and mental constitution of man demands it,
Frequently you meet a man who is like tin
ico-berg floating around among Ills fellow
companions. lie is not agreeable ; ho never
speaks a friendly word, his mind
is upon his business alone,
and ho devotes no time to enter
taininghisfriends. How different, how much
better is his neighbor who gives a portion
of his time to pleasant intercourse with
those around him. The circlo of friend
ship that surrounds us is mado largo or
small by our own individual conduct. If
that happy faculty which wo all possess,
of making ourselves agreeable, has been
properly educated, tho fact will crop out,
and wo will bo known for our kind treat
ment, far and near. Tho hospitality that
characterizes many, goes further than to
merely command respect and friendship,
it gives a stimulus to tho body and mind
that makes labor easy and pleasant, ami
charms tho hour in which it is done. With
what pleasure somo people do their work,
lie it hard or easy. Would you know why?
Tho reason it plain. They never fall to en
Joy themselves, an 3 in doing so they make
everything around them pleasant; forget
not that if work would bo performed well;
