Charles Bracket & Ludlow Weston were ap
prentices to a carpenter ly the name of Jonas
White. They were nearly of the same age
about nineteen, and they were both of them of
remarkably good disposition, and withnl, very
punctual at their work. Mr. White was a kind,
Indulgent man, and his workmen had no occa
aion to complain of his requirements.
Charley,' said Ludlow Weston, one evening
after they had closed their labors upon a house
that Mr. White was erecting, 'let us have a ride
No,' returned Charles Brackctt, a he re
moved his apron. The answer was short, but
yet it was kindly spoken.
Come, do,' urged Ludlow. 'It will be a
beautiful evening, and we can have a first-rate
time. Won't you go ?'
'I cannot, Lud.'
But whv ?'
Because I am otherwise engaged, and besides
I have'nt the money to spare.'
'Never mind the engagement, but come a
!ong and I will pay the expenses.'
'If T ever join with a companion in any pas
time that involves pecuniary expense, 1 shall
always pay my share ; but this evening, Lud, I
Lave an engagement with nysclf.
'And what can it be, Charley ?'
I borrowed a book of Mr. White, a few days
- ainoe, and I promised to return it as soon as I
finished it. I desire to do so as soon as possible,
I must devote this evening to reading.'
'And what is the subject, pray ? asked Lud
low. The History of Architecture,' returned
O, bah ! Such dry stuff as that !'
'It's not dry, I assure you Lud.'
'It may not be to you, but it is to me. What,
poring over architecture all night, after work
ing hard at it all day?'
'Yes,' returned Charles ; 'because I am thus
enabled to learn more of the different branches
of our business.'
Well,' said Ludlow, with a slight 'toss of
the head, 'for my part I learn full as much about
the carpenter's trade at my work as I shall ev
er find use for. I don't see the use, after a
poor fellow has been tied unto mortices, grooves,
ills, rafters, sleepers, and such matters, all day
long, to pass away the night in studying the stulF
all over again.'
Ah, Lud,' replied Charles Bracket, 'you
don't take the right view of the matter. Every
man makes himself honorable in a peculiar bus
iness, just so far as he understands that business
thoroughly, and applies himself to its perfection.
It b mdthe calling or trade that makes the man
but iiWfce honest enterprise with which that
calling is followed. In looking about for a
business that should give me a support through
life, I hit upon and chose the one in which we
are now both engaged, and when I did so, I re
solved that I would make myself useful in it.
We have something besides mere physical
atrentrth to employ and cultivate ', we have a
mind that must labor, and that mind will labor,
at fomethintr. Now, physical labor alone is te
dious and unthankful ; but when we combine the
mental and physical, and make them assist each
other, then we find labor a source of comfort.'
Really, Charley, you are quite a philosopher,
and I suppose what you say is true; but then I
aheuld likcioknow if it don't require some men
lal labor to keep up with the instructions of our
bass now ? 1 declare it keeps me ininKing
at may be,' said Charles ; 'but after all, the
hnlv mental labor vou perform is memory. You
only remember Mr. White's instructions and
: than follow them, and in so doing, vou learn
nothing but the mere method of doing the work
. you are engaged on. For instance, you know
how long to make the rafters of the house we
are row building, and you know how to let them
in their places, but do you know the philosoph
ical reason for all this f Do you know why you
are required to perform your work after given
. rules , t
'' I know that I am to do it, and that when I
am of age, I shall be paid for doing it, and I
know how to do it. That is enough,' answered
Ludlow, with much emphasis.
'It is not enough for me,' said Charley.
'Every piece of mechanism has a science in its
composition, and 1 would be able to comprehend
that science so as to apply it, perhaps to other
Uses. In short, Lud, I would be master of my

'Such an one as you have been taught to build,

Then vmi won't go to ride this evening r" said
Ludlow, at they teached their boardinghouse.
Here the conversation ended. Tht evoning
went to ride ; while Charley Bracket betook him
self to his room, and was soon deeply interested
in his History of Architecture, some parts he
would read over several limes so as to thoroughly
comprehend them, and occasionally he would
take notes, and copy some of the drawings.
Before he retired to Ins rest, he had finished the
book; and when he arose the next morning, the
subject of Ins study was fresh and vivid in his
mind, and he felt happy and satisfied with him
Weston, with a heavy yawn, as
the two apprentices met before breakfast,
'So did 1, returned Charles
'At your dry books, eh ?'
'Well, I don't envy you. Egad, Charley, the
recollection of last night's ride and supper will
give me enjoyment for a month.'
'And the recollection of my last night s study
may benefit me for a lifetime.
'Hah V said Ludlow. Hut the very manner
in which he uttered it showed that he did not
exactly mean it.
A month had passed away, and it was halur

you must take Mary and go with us.'
I am sorry that i must disappoint you, liiiu t
but the old professor at the academy, ns he lias
no school this afternoon, has promised to give
me some assistance in my studies in mensura
tion, nnd it would be a disappointment both to
him and myself to miss the opportunity.
'U, bother your mensuration I Come along,
Mary Waters will think you are really mean,
for Sophy Cross will be sure to tell her what a
fine time she had with me.'
'No M iry won't,' returned Charles. "After
I have finished my lesswn, I am going to take a
horse and chaise, and carry her out to visit her
sick aunt, where we shall spend the Sabbath.
However, I hope you will have a good time, and
I believe you will, too.'
Mary Waters and Sophia Cross were both of
them good girls, and they really loved the youths,
whose attentions they were respectively re
ceiving. Charles and Ludlow had already talked
ot manage, and they looked forward to that im
portant event with much promise of joy, and all
who knew them had reason to believe that they
would both make good husbands.
Thus time glided away. Both of the young
men iaiu up some money, uuu ilicy VvCiC. LotH
teady at their work, but Charles pursued his
tudii'a with unremitting diligence, while Lud-
ow could never see any use in a mere carpenter
bothering his bruins with geometrical properties,
areas of figures, volumes of solids, mathematical
roots and powers, trigonometry, and a thousand
other things that his companion spent so much
Two years were soon swallowed up in the
vortex of time, and Charles and Ludlow were
free. They both were hired by their old mas-
er, and for several months they worked on in
he town where Mr. White resided. Ludlow
Weston was married to Sophia Cross, and they
boarded with the bride's mother.
'Ain't you ever going to get married ?' asked
Ludlow, as he and Charles went at work together.
As soon as I can get a House to put a wife
nlo, quietly returned Charles.
'Why you can hire one at any time.' '
'I know that, but I wish to own one.'
'Then poor Mary Waters will have to wait a
ong tune for a husband, 1 am thinking.
'1 erhaps so, Charles said, with a smile.
Then Ludlow whistled a tune as he continued
Boys,' said Mr. VVhite, as he came into his
shop one morning, where Charles and Ludlow
were at work, 'we are soon likely to have a job
in . the new btate House is going up
as soon as the committee can procure a suitable
plan, and 1 shall have an opportunity to contract
lor a irnnd share of the carpenter's work.
'Good ! W e shall have a change of air, said
Ludlow, in a merry mood.
That evening Charles took his paper from
the post office, and in it he found an advertise-!
ment calling for an architectural plan for the
new State House. He went home, locked him
self up in his room, and devoted hulf the night
to intense thought and study. The next day he
procured a large sheet of hue drawing paper,
and after supper he again betook himself to his
room, where he drew out his table, spread his
paper, and then taking his case of mathematical
instruments he set himself about his task. For
a whole week ho worked every night till twelve
or one o'clock, and lit the end of that time his
job was finished. He rolled his sheet of paper

But, we especially intended, at the commence
ment of this article, to refer to the sale of liquor
on the Sabbath day. On Sunday last, from ear
ly morn to the dawn' of the following day, our
streets and coffee-houses were filled with drunk
en debauchery and midnight orgies of the most
deplorably, nature. . intermixed with the b hoys,
ragamuffins, loafers and brothel bullies, could be
seen the laboring mechanic, the usually prompt
and sober business man, the merchant, and the
professional man all splendidly drunk, and, for
the time, "hale fellows, well met." Such
sights are shocking, yet are but too true.
There ore ordinances for the prevention of
the sale of liquor on Sunday, that need but the
hearty co-operation of the municipal authorities,
to be at once put in force) and to carry them out
to the fullest letter.
Yesterday, the Mayor Instructed the police
to enforce the ordinance, and to complain of all
selling liquor within their respective beats. It
now remains te be seen whether this is prompt

redemption of the city from crime, or the pro
tection ot our citizens, unless a public meeting
is called, and the matter canvassed by the peo

'text.' Where the dividing, line is between
moderate drinking and drunkenness, we cannot
say. It's somewhere between one glass and
death. " Be your own judges in this matter, al
ways partaking discreetly of God's bounties.
"Moderate drinkers drunkards in embryo 1
go ahead. Hurra for our side."
Now this is a plain statement of the cairj.
Moderate drinking Is the grnnd school of drunk
chness; the ruimaeller is the teacher, and the
dram shop is the school-room. Every good cit
izen owes it to the cause of virtue and humani
ty, by any and every honest means, to put an
end to this school of vicet Every man should
ask himself what he is doing to remove this
scourge from the land. And if conscience does
not return a favorable answer, he should re
pent, and bring forth work meet for repentance.

These consequences are squandered estates,

that the rumseller does not know which glass

kAILBOAS BOOTES TO THE PACIFIC.
Beyond the Colorado this route will be found
less formidable, perhaps, and its access to the
coast attended with no peculiar difficulty.
Where the Humboldt branch of the Northern
rnute can best cross the Sierra, a complete sur
vey car. only decidet The obstructions must be
absolutely impassible to man, to prevent the ac
complishment of so great a desideratum. If it
can be done, the energies of our people will do
it. I dd not doubt its practicability, or that it
will be done. New routes are every day dis
covered, better than the older roads. During
the first season, many wagons entered in the
direction of Shasta, by a route described as fur
nishing very easy travel. But as this is a point
which can only be finally settled by a complete
survey, it is unnecessary to say more about it.
The snow which will accumulate oa the north
ern route has been urged as an unanswerable
argument against it. During some severe win
ters this will be found an inconvenience, but
nothing more not greater than on the New
England route. Fremont) in his winter trav
els from the Columbia along the eastern bate ef
the mountains, found no great difficulty from
this oause. The snow did not stop his animals
from travel, nor prevent their finding subsist
ence. The stock of the Indians and the Mor
mon (ettlers, and the game find a support
less difficulty tha.t they probably would in New
Lnorland. were it in the same wuu suite, a uo
South Pass will compare in facility with Walk
er's ia this and other respects. The Sierra
Nevada, by a northern crossing, may be more
difficult on account of snow than the Sierra Ma-
dre, but Fremont's difficulties on the latter', from
this cause, under Williams, an old and experi
enced guide, must net be forgotton. On either
mountain, especially during severe winters,
there will be great accumulations of snow in the
ravines, but on neither will this cause present
difficulties insuperable by modern improvement,
Having now made a brief comparison of the
two routes, to far ns the nature of the territory
and charaoter of the country they will traverse
is concerned, let us glance at their respective
influence upon commercial intercourse and tran
sit between the East and the West. Py Qwin's
chart, the mouth of the Columbia is laid down
about 46 deg. N.; San Francisco bay 38 deg. N.
The main track between the Northern Branch
and the Colorado 35 deg. and New York City
(which may be fairly taken as a medium for all
the Northern Trade) 41 deg. By this route,
then, all commerce and travel to and from the
Eastern, Middle, and North-western States,'
(taking New York city as a medium, as said
above,) to and from the mouth ef the Colum
bia, must diverge 6 deg. south, and then run II
deg. north to roh thir destination, making 17
deg, instead of 5 deg. the difference between the
latitude of New Yoric and the mouth of the Co
lumbia. Between New York and San Francis
co bay by G win's route, their difference is 9 deg.
instead of 3 deg., their true difference of luti
tude. When the enormous cost in money and
time, of transportation and travel with which
this additional distance must tax the intercom
munication of th Northern States in gross is
considered, it must be evident at once that
neither they nor the people of Oregon and
Northern California will be satisfied with
G win's route alone, if a better one can be at any
expense made practicable. On the contrary
all the South-Eastern States would be nearly as
well accommodated in their trade with North
ern Califoraia and Oregon by the Northern as
Southern route. ' - j
The construction of the southern line of road,
alone, provided it had a terminus at Sam Diego
would have the effect to make that the most im
portant part on our Western coast; It is as ac
cessible to all the trade of the Pacifio as San
Francisco, and the freights to it would be no
greater by sea, and being, by railroad, to much
nearer to tli whole Atlantic country, it would
become the avenue of all the trade the railroad
would create between our country and the for
eign inhabitants ef the Pacific shores. This re
sult would aatisfy neither Northern California
nor Oregon. The cost tf the road on G win's
plan from Puget's Sound to its angle in the
south of California, and the cost of the North
em branches to Missouri and Iowa would build;
the Northern road, on either the Oregon or
the Humboldt raute, from the Missouri lint) to
'o the northern route, and the Interests of all
artics will be satisfied. As before stuled, con
nections between the two lines may be effected
hereafter. St Louis can connect wtlli the
ioutherrt lirle by the South-East branch of the
Pacific California and Oregon can build their
north arid south valley road if they aee proper,
and in Cither caic, if tho wants of the country
demand these comparatively local roads, the
General Government will doubtless lend her
powerful aid. But let our energies be first ap
plied to such a coni.eclion with the Pacifio coast
as will satisfy both the North and South, such
as will develop arid control, if iwetsr'y, the
interior territories now so remote and so diffi
cult of access; such as will hold in awe the
savage tribes within our borders, and will sup
ply them with the food which in a few years
