GEN. TAYLOR'S POSITION.
The Louisiana Delegation to the Whig Na
tional Convention, submitted to that body a
paper prepared by them in reference to Gener
al Taylor's position. The paper was read by
Mr. Saunders, of La., and ran thus :
"The position occupied bv Gen. Taylor, in
relation to the Presidency, does not 6eem to be
correctly understood by many persons, and for
.!.. a . t it
inai reason, u is aeemea proper dv me delega
tion of Louisiana to make such explanations
and statements in relation to that position, as
may euectuaiiy remove all doubt, and the ef
fect of misrepresantation on that point.
Gen. Tailor has taken no part in bringing
u: .. ; l-
uis llama uriure me American people in con
nection with the Presidency, nor does he pre
sent bis name to this convention as a candi
date. His friends throughout the country, ra
ther discouraged than encouraged bv him. havi
placed him prominently before the nation, as
worthy of tilling the place once occupied by
the Father of hu Country, and Gen. Taylor
from a sense of duty, has assented to tue nomi
nation.
'He considered himself in the hands of his
friends who have honored him with their choice
He has publicly and repeatedly stated that they
might withdraw him - whenever they thought
the interests of the country, in their opinion
required it. He does not consider that under
the circumstances in which his nam has been
brought forward, that it would be proper in
him to withdraw himself. Such has been his
position since he assented to the use of his
name, subsequent to the capture of Monterey,
and sucti is Ai position now.
'Oa behalf of the delegation of Louisiana, I
will further state that Gen. Taylor desires it to
be understood, that, in his opinion, his friends
who come into this convention are bound to
abide by its decision, and to sustain the noroi
nee "heart and soul" that General Taylor
recognises in his friends in this convention
those who have the right to withdraw his name
and will cheerfully acquiesce in such with
drawal.
General Taylor, we are also authorized to

himself, being persuaded that the welfare of our

the office of marshal of the State of Ohio.

Music of the 4Iammes. But, after all,
wore we to seek out only one sound in the
world, as a representative or expression of
Jife, business, health, vigor and improvement
we should certainly name the sound of the
hammer. What on earth is there that is
more cheeringf It is iho very note of prep
aration for business, and gives a thrill that is
peculiar to itself, and to all that he men
around it.
What brines the morning so fresh and vi
vid to the mind of the sluggish as the ham
mer which sounds from the neighboring roofs.
It is the veriest reproach an indolent man can
nave, ana speaics siraigui iu me nein, iu
those quiet, manly tones, which only the sin-
cerest friendship employs. And then, how
much ia in that sound besides! What a
. . . m . t ft . a
range can fancy take when such a sound
comes forth! Theie is the workmen on the
roof of a new building, or in the shop of a
mechanic, or the store of a merchant. It is
the carpenter, the blacksmith, the tinman,
the jeweler, or the worker in marble; all
industrious, all busy. The "sound of the
hammer" is the not that forewarns the
woild of the whereabouts of the hard work-
in 2 man. About it there is no concealment.
The man he owes, hears it, and waits conten
ted, feeling thai' he is safef There is a spi
rit in the sound ol a hammer which affects
more or less nearly the whole .wotld. Som
people go through life without noticing one
sound from another in the multitude of noi
ses around them; but we will answer for the
sound of the hammer, that not one ever heard
it without beinff conscious of an expression
either positively pleasant or certainly painful.
Mechanics should stick to their hammers for
they are sentinels of industry and bestowers
of praise. .
Ihe hammer is an instrument oi power
and greatness. By it are forced the sword
of contention and ihe ploughshare of peace
By it are forged the press of the free, and
(he shackles of the shve." Let our mech in
ics in the emblem of the hammer, always be
hold an instrument to unfetter the darkness
of ihe mind and to drive truth and knowledge
home t the hearts and consciences ot those
who look snecringly upon labor as the Sniiil
forges the nail or the spike which unites to
gether the timbers of our leviathiins of the
deep, or the timbers of ihe frabfic that can
opy, the proud, the fair, and gay.
The French Sewing Maciiixe. The
inventor of this machine is an humble artisan
who is a great mechanical genius, and who
has been engaged for thirty years in the per
fection of his invention, lie received a pat
ent for it in France a few years ago, and it
is said lhat for more than twenty-five years
he sought in vain to make it work, and thai
the thought flashed all at once upon his
mind regarding its true and perfect principle.
The machine was introduced into London
some lime last year and has attracted much
attentiou in that city- It is very cheap
Some are sold for twenty dollars and the
price varies from that to thirty. They are
sold by a Mr. Schmidt, ro. 23 Sutton-streel
Loudon. The machine is fixed on a table,
and is a very small box. It is worked by a
treadle, and every movement of the foot pro
duces a corresponding action in the needle
so that 300 stitches can easily oe made in a
minute, lhe hands are merely used lo
guide the material being sewn, and by turn
ing a screw the size of the stitch is instauily
vaned. i he machine will sew, stitch, and
form cords and plaits. The stitch is the
tamboui or crotchet stitch. The whole val
ue of the invention consists in making ma
chinery do what was hitherto done by the fin
gers, and thus resolving a problem supposed
nnpiaciicable.
The beauty of this machine is that it can
woik button holes and embroider. M. Mag
nin who exhibited it in London wore an en
tire suit worked by it, consisting of coat, vest
pants and all tlieirappurtenances. To France
belongs the credit of this invention. M.Thi
monuier is lhe name the invent r, and his
fame willgodjwn to posterity with that of

Wants or the Working Classk.
Two things are required on the part of the
working classes to adjust themselves to the
state of society as one altering and improv
ing: skill or practical knowledge, so tha
when one branch of . productive labor fails
from improvement or fluctuation, thev miy
resort to another, and economy, that tbey
may provide against a "rainy day,M and in
stead of seeking relief in comb nation and
oil! cage, have the means of support until the
airival of more favorable times. These qual
ities will appear only where there has been
some iraiuing of the head and heart. Lei
then the mind be taught to think and lhe
judgement be fined for conect decision, and
'ha difference will be manifest as it is now in
cases occasionally witnessed; iho intelligent
will not be dupes of demigngues or incendi
aries, and lhe thrift j will discover a higher
tone of feeling than their improvident neigh

A Good Move among "Workmen.
The Pittsburg Post states that a large num
ber of workmen in the different rolling mills
in and about Pittsburg Jiave it in contempla
tion to erect a new iron establishment fur
nish their own capital, conduct their own bu
siness and share the profits equally. It is pro
posed that two hundred persons, practical
. . . . V, . i;ii
workmen, should cornoine tneir capuai, skiu
and energy, and form a company, to be got
erncd by rules and regulations of their own
adoption. Each member shall furnish 500
dollars to be put into a capital of 100,000
dollars, with which to commence business.
Each member of the association will have a
particular branch assigned to him all will
be actively employed and there will be no
drones or idlers. In addition to the manu
facture of iron of all kinds, the? are thinking
of establishing in connection therewith a
sheet tin manufactory. We believe there
is not an establishment of this kind in the
United Slate; and persons who worked at
the business, in EngUnd know that the facil
ities for manufactuiing in this country are as
good as anywhere, else. The Hock tin,

some suppose.
This is a scheme that heartily commends
tself to our views on such subjects. Theie
is no other way in the world for workmen to
elevate themselves thin by such schemes as
this. Why should they not, and why can
they not, enjoy both the fruits of capital and
labor.
"A Beatttoti. Poex. Th i attention of the reader
is directed to another column for an original poem
on Light. It is very beautiful really a gem. The
author is D. Bates of ihia city, whose exquisite line?,
entitled "Speak Geniry," have been circulated far
and wide throughout the old world aa well as the
new. Mr. Bates is a true poet and as modest as he
is meritorious. He is a broker of Philadelphia is
engaged in an extensive business, and is deservedly
esteemed by all who enjoy the pleasure of his ac
quaint ance. We hope for other favors from thesajne
graceful aixd giited pen." Yhil, 6at. Gltjntr.

Thou Sun ! from whose broad disc ethereal rays
Are poured prof usely over land and sea.
Uutii all nature kindles in the blaze
I wonder not the Perblin3 worship thee;
l'or I have stood and watched thy morning beams
" Empearl the landscape, bathed in crystal dew;
Or dance at evening on the crimsoned streams;
Or fringe the clouds thut veiled thee from my view,
Until 1 felt that I could almost worship too.
Thou source of life and light ! whose magic power
Sustains the changes oi the rolling year;
Paints the young verdure, and the opening flower,
And permeates the earth and atmosphere.
Atoms and worlds alike bask in the light
That streams unceasing from thy central fire; .
Which being quenched cne momeit, ancient Night
Her throne would take, and Natnre would expire
O! Earth, thcmoiher thou oflife, thou Sun, the Sire!
Creation slefctt as sleeps an unborn thought,
Until the drakness from its couch was driven,
And then awoke, and shouted as it ought
The rays from thy refulgent orb in heaven. .
And for ix thousand years thy steady light
llaih blessed the nations of the teeming earth.
Giving successive seasons, day and night.
And all that's beautiful and lovely birth-
Man knows this much, and owns at least thy power
and worth.
But all thy natural splendors were in.vain
The moral darkness brooding o'er mankind
Called for another sun upon the plane.
To kindlein the firmament of mind. ,
Judea's hills first caught its morning rays.
And ongcls stooped fiom their abodes of bliss
To hail the harbinger of better days.
The Sun of Righteousness, the Prince of Teace:
Tis not idolatry for man to worship This.
Though you resplendant orb may set in gloom;' -
And shuddering Nature on her couch recline.
While darkness like a p .11 enwraps her tomb;
Still shall this Light ia glorious triumph shine.
Already has it broke the mental night
That hung upoa the world ita withering ban;
And nations now are rising in their might
Both king and subject hold whate'er they can
Each one alike surprises to find himself a man.
Ita march is onward, like a rushing tide
That ebbs not though the stream may rise and fall,
Sweeping oppression, tyranny, aside;
Thrones, sceptres.titlfs verbal nothings all-
Shall vanish as the mists at morning's dawn:
Its foes must yield, or, overwhelmed, be hurled
From their high seats: from clime to clime, still on,
Its banner shall be over all unfurled.
Until its splendor, like a glory, wraps the world.
