It it- imp'• «ible that an intelligent community our imnterotis and extensive factories are worked almost wholly by children—little creatures, who by the charter of nature, are entitled to an exemp tion fron» labour and care,, and whose proper place would be their native hills, as free and joyous the wiuda which plaj around them. Thousands thousands of thebe little slaves, are driven, by rise, with pale and saddened faces, and feeble and reluctant limbs, to their toil, from which, with a slight interval at noon, night alone releases them. Day succeeds day. with the same heavy i sk—and the same heavy heart to perform it. Wearied, heart-sick, spiritless ; without a joy to enliven ihe present, or a hope to brighten the fu lure; destitute, friendless, forsaken; sinking be ueath the unequal burthen of toil, poverty and oppression—they realize all the ills of age without the firmness by which age is enabled to endure them. The children of freemen, they are made slaves at an age when the children of slaves free! a: are Benbath the sufferings of a factory life hood itself will often faint. But the heart sickens to think that little innocents, fresh and tender from the bosom of maternal affection, who live but in a joyous freedom from restraint, and whom, under the simple institutions of our fathers, no fate could depress, no poverty sadden,should be cooped up by thousands in a diseased atmosphere to toil and to tremble beneath the whip of the overseei until blighted by oppression and sink into the grave. An intelligent writer, speaking of children, very justly remarks, that "the due framing of the man, is a requisite that the child should grow up in a certain careleBsnes of spirit. The natural mobil ity of a child requires, for the full development of the mental as well as physical powers, to have complete play. To train his infant limbs constant action is requisite. Watch a child, and unceasing is the motion requisite to keep him i a state o! comfort ; confine him for a moment, and he is uncomfortable and unhappy. In the early days of his infancy, unable to move himself suffi ciently, the nurse keeps him in a constant motion; having acquired strength, he swings about his arms kicks with his little legs, crawls, and throws him self into every possible contortion. The boy runs, leaps, and keeps himself in one incessant turmoil. It is not requisite to explain, or to attempt to ex plain these facts ; to state why this motion is need ed ; suffice it that it is needed. But the action of the child is never spontaneously a continuous action of one sort. Put him to turn a wheel, and you would luin his health and stop his growth." Is there a bosom so indurated by avarice us to con template the horrors of confinement, monotony and toil, to such a nature, without pity and indig. nation. For the honour of humanity we hope there is not. In defence of a system, worse in all its features Ilian the slave trade, it is alleged that the pover ty of the children makes this labour a relief ; or, in other words, that when misfortune falls upon the weak and innocent, the way for a Christian and a philanthropist to relieve them, is to seize and to enslave them, drive then» to toil which, combined with the other hardships of their situa tion, murders them by hundreds—and for this, [generous benefactors !J they give them clothes to cover their nakedness, and food to preserve their lives and to protract their misery. The argument man ffeiiog, they may convince them, but dors not satisfy us ; there must be something wrong, w liera there rs sueh suffering and oppression in a free anti civilized country. Society oires to these hapless innocent!» protection and subsistence j and, boastful or its »flluence, is us well prepared to discharge the debt. If, therefore, charity, which in these days is too prone to wander to foreign and ideal ob jects, should be deaf to ihe groans of the sufferer, and dead to the call of humanity, 'duty, the ordi nal y duty which all civilized communities knowledge to the wretched, should compel them to rescue the innocent victim from the .whip of his task master. It is, however a humiliating, but undoubted fact that to produce a public benefit, society must be »uvinced, not that it is its duty, but its in ter«Ht to effect a change. It is the interest of Hhe north that swells the tariff to oppression—it tsv the interest of the south that urges nullification ro Were the voice of duty listened to by either, the patriot would not weep over the approaching dissolution of the union. In the same spirit we should, perhaps, con vince the community, that the benefits which ac crue to society by enslaving and oppressing thou sands of her children, are more than counterbal anced by its disadvantages. The task is not a difficult one. The extension of ignorance, servil ity and crime, is too great not vitally to affect the common weal. Our factories are now the schools in which the tender and pliant nature of youth ;oes through a probation which prepares both îeart and hjind Tor the blackest and boldest deeds of crime and infamy. Turned into a promiscu ous assemblage of girls aud boys, with n&l care to watch aud restrain, to teach the lovli ness of virtue and the loathsomeness of vice, to direct their ignorance and sustain their feeble ness— who can doubt the result? They fall as human nature, ungarded, ever will fall, into every vice which unbridled passions, evil habits, and dangerous associations, can prompt. Every temp, tation to evil surrounds them, without a voice to warn or a hand to restrain ; and it can be a mat ter of no astonishment that they become, at an age when their bosoms should he unshadowed by asingle fault, as old in vice as they are young in years. Falsehood, dishonesty, incontinence, blas phemy, aud a total disregard for the decencies of virtue, are engrafted upon their youthful natures, —until humanity shudders at their early depravi* ty, and trembles for the community which con tains them. At a more advanced age, the factory rejects them, and they are thrown into the bosom ot soriety, fitted, both sexes, for any thing whioti passion, interest or iniquity, should suggest. Ig norant to the lowest degree ; besotted in habits of vice J servile from long slavery—they are unpre .rege, of . c.ffe^ '^if. their boldness and iniquity, they naturally turn to crime, and sink into habits which fill our aim houses and penitentiaries. Such are the schools in which America is anxious to form her children ! • Whether we consult the dictates of humanity, the interests of society, the character of pie, or the preservation of are admonished to prostrate this union of the poor and the prison house; where infancy and inno cence arc punished ; w here thousands of those who will hereafter constitute the freemen of the land, while they are enslaved, are tortured, while they are oppressed, - corrupted. The Cluse of Summer. —A period of time is just drawing to a close that will be long remem bered in our country. A summer of fear, disas ter and death, has passed during which the very atmosphere was inhaled with distrust, and the richest fruits rejected, and inproach of friends dreaded. But it is d, probably, with it much of the anxiety and distress and imminent danger of the season will We shall again hear the din and wit ness the bustle of business in our crowded streets. The great danger will be that the darkness and sorrow shall be so far forgotten, that each saluta ry influence which may have been created by the presence of a fearful chastisement IV of the Lord will be dissipated, and a more terrible have just been suffering—are now suffering—the slightest of the three scourges of God—War, Famine and Pesti lence. We suffer that which was chosen by Da vid as the least of the three evils—anil the thought that there are yet heavier bolts in the iiamf of the Almighty, justice should stir us up to see that the present chastisement has its due effect upon hearts—JV. T. Messenger. ac to treason. pater peo institutions, we us—a summer the a —an pass away. the hand evil will befal us. It should be recollected that wc our The Stream of Life —The following beautiful passage is from a sermon preached by Bishop Heber to his parishioners a short time before his departure for India, " Life bears us on like the current of a mighty river. Our boat at first glides down the narrow channel, through the play ful »nur mu rings of the little brook, and the windings of its grassy border. The trees shed their blossoms over our young heads; the flowers on the brink seem to offer themselves to our young hands; we are happy i n hope, and we grasp eagerly at the beaoties around us ; but the stream hurries on, and still our hands are empty. "Our course in manhood is along a wider and deeper flood, and ainid objects more striking and magnificent. We are animated by the moving E icture ol enjoyment and industry which passes efore uss we are excited bv some short-lived success, or depressed and made miserable by equally short-lived disappointment. But our e nergy and our dependence are both in vain. The stream bears us on, and our joys and our griefs arc alike left behind us; we may be shipwrecked, but cannot be delated ; whether rough or smooth, the river hastens towards its home, till ihe roaring of the ocean is in our ears, and the tossing of bit waves is beneath our keel, and the lands lessen from our eyes, and the Hoods are lilted up around us, and the earth loses sight of us, and we take 1813.
