The ma, the moon, the stare, the sees,
the hills, and the plains
Are not these, O Soul, the Vision of him
who reigns ?
Is not the Liston He? though He be not
that which He seem,?
Dreams ae tree while they last, sad do
wesot livrd*emems?
Earth, these solid stars, this weight of
body and limb,
Are they not sign sad symbol of thy
division from him?
Dark is the world to thee: thyself art the
reason why;
For is he not all but thou, that hast power
to feel "I am I !`
Glory about thee, without thee: and thou
fulfllest thy doom,
Making Him broken gleams and a stiled
splendor and gloom.
Speak to Him thou, for He hears, and
Spirit with Spirit can meet
Closer is He than breathing and nearer
than hands and feet.
God is law, say the wise, O Soul, and let
us rejoice,
For if He thunder by law the thunder is
yet His voice.
Law is God, say some: no God at all, says
the fool;
For all we have power to see is a straight
staff bent in a pool;
And the ear of man cannot hear and the
eye of man cannot bee;
B t, it ee could see and hear, this Vision
were it not He?
There are not two things in
Nature tI&:t ought to work together
more h:.rmoniously than capital
ind 1. K'. In fact, they are as
nece-ssar\ to each ohcr as the brain
red ou.ei in man. Even this
ligur'e 4es not come up to the full
truth of their relation to each other.
For it ihplies that capital does all
t he thinking, and labor only all the
rough work. Now this-does not do
labor justice. For there is no man
ufacture that does not require labor
full of thought, scientific perception,
and inventive genius-a sleight of
mind, as well as of hand. In fact,
there is not a joint stock company
in America for manufacturing pur
poses to which this thought capital
-this s ience, skill, and genius of
labor-are not worth as much to it
as the money capital subscribed by
the stockholders. There are labor
ing men in most of these establish
ments who do not own and perhaps
cannot buy a single share in them,
but who have transferred to them
an amount of inventive genius and
brain capital worth more to the
company than all the money paid in
by the largeot stockhokler.
I think, therefore, that r othing is
Iclearer than the fact that it does not
do justice to labor, especially Amer
ican labor, to say that it is only the
muscle, while capital is the brain, of
any joint stock company. This
muscle thinks, and thinks deep,
hard, and long, to make its laborj
tell more effectively to the profit of1
capital. It is the thinking power
the science and genius of labor, and
not of capital-that han invented
nearly all the labor-saving machines
that joint stock manufactories use
and without which they never could
have been'forumed or have made any
profit on their productions.
I think we ought to allow this
mind as well an muscle to labor
when we consider ite relation to
capital, and the terms on whidc it
should work for or with eapital.
We have considered not osly the
growing aliinaatiou that lhas sgeung
lip between them, but the oggniused
antagonism which is .howing.tagl
1in this country sad threughiat
'Christendom. So farm as imsa -
tional organization iu eomemraed,
nothing in the history of the world
ever approached in systematic
power the 'vombinationa of working
men to protect their righta, as they
call them, against capital. Theme
Sconibinations threaten to psect
governmentsa and change the consti
Lution of states. We are told they
were at the bottom of thjq terrible
inxarrcction in Paris, sad that the
Workingmen's Unions in Engla.
Gepasany, sad Italy sympathized
with them. This, thee, is Oke poiat
welmave reached. Thes;,se nearly
a million of workingmen enraps
and America organised into these
combinations, which are being con
federated and represented in great
international congress, that legis
late on the rights of labor, and peas
laws that the political legislation
of their resp""va 0 m00 e t
Now, then, is there any possible
remedy for this state of things? Is
there any measure that would ar
rest this civil war between labor
and capital; that would unite them
harmoniously, and make not only
their interests, but their feelings,
indentical ? We know that in a
few cases in America, and in far
more in England, the w-peratiwv
system has been tried; and it works
well. One or two hundred work
ing-men form a joint stock com
pany, each investing his labor, and
perhaps a pound sterling, or five
dollars, in money, in it. This sys
tem puts them all on a new fooling,
and animates them with a new
spirit of ambition, of ownership, of
independent enterprise. In the first
place, they have all the capital of
mechanical science, genius, and
skill which manufacturing capitalists
can command. Of course, they
have all the muscle labor needed.
Then they have a little money cap
ital; and with this money, muscle,
and skill they increase their pro
duction and working power as a
corporation. There are many of
these companies in England; and I
be:ieve they generally work har
moniously and well.
But I am persuaded this co-oper
ative system can never supply the
remedy that is needed. It does not
meet the difficulty. It is the seces
sion of labor from capital, net a
union with it. It is labor setting
itself up as an independent power,
which must increase the antagonism
to capital, and make a civil war
perpetual between the two great
forces upon whose union every
country mast rely for its material
prosperity. We must look for
.something better than this co-oper
ative system as a remedy for the
evil. We must look for it in a
differrent principle. I think we
can find that principle working
beautifully on a small scale in a
system now in practice in connec
tion with one great American enter
prise. And, if the principle works
well on a small scale, it may work
equally well on a large one. "If to
equals you add equals the sums
will be equals."

The time consumed in obtaining
a panel of jurors for the trial of
Foster, the indicted murderer of
Putnam, and the tests applied to
secure a jury without the bias of
any antecedent opinion, simply il
Iustrate the unutterable folly alike
of the process and the rule which
requires it. In the effort to procure
*an impartial jury in capital cases
courts of justice under the present
ruling are more likely to fill the

sated by their opponemts, sad may
gain some politicaladvantages from
them. Such has been the eamn with
a few of the "mleser sort" of Demo
crate in this country, and of Tories
in England, in regard to the treaty I
of Washington. The Pdrioi, of thile
city, having no higher aim than to
shake public coqfidence in the ad
ministration of President Gaurr,
and to bring the real Democracy
again into power, has es4posed the
treaty with all the malignity and
seal the men who control it can in- I
fuse into its columns. Of the treaty
our Washington demagogue gives
the following opinion:
"The Treaty of Washington
proves to be an unconditional ear
render of the dearest right claimed
by this Republic from the earliest
days of its infancy. It is useless to
narrate how our American commis
sioners were wheedled, cowed, de
ceived, and betrayed; their stupid
ity, villany, and ignorance deprived
us of everything, and disgraced us
in the eight of England and the
Almost the very day this emanatded
from the mind of the man who inform
ed the rebels of Charleston of the pur
pose of our Government to relieve
Fort Sumter, the London &durtty
Review, Tory, and of course against
the administration of Gausnrofx, ap
peared with the following equally vig.
orous denunciation of the treaty as a
disgraceful surrender on the part of
" The treaty proves to be an alamo
lute mrrenderofevery point forwhich
successive English governments have
contended. It commences with the i,
humble apology which was demanded
in vain by Mr. Sumner cud Mr. Fish;
and the English Commission, as if for
the express purpose of humiliating this
country, have committed the blunder
of declaring that the law which they
recognize for the purpose of compen
sation was not in force when the sup
posed liability ws incurred."
By changing the names of the two
countries from one article to the other,
they will be so nearly in the same lan
guage as to be scarcely distinguishable.
Either the Tory editor of the Review,
or the editor of the Patriot, might have
written both. The allegations of the
former that England had surrendered
everything, and of thelatter that Am
erica has lost all by the treaty, is a
very remarkable instance of the truth
of the proposition with which we
started, and of the downright knavery
of both editors. And no higher comp
liments could be paid to the wisdom
and justice of the treaty than that it is
condemned by the bad men of both
Several of the teachers in North
Carolina, supported by the Pea

ing notices to suspend their opera
aliens in that State, or prepare to
take the consequences. There is no
doubt as to the source of these no
tices. They have the well-known
stamp of Ku-gluxism upon them.
Mr. Peabody, in his generous chari
ty, provided that his fund should
be applied to the eduaetion of clili
dren at the South without any dis
crimination as to color. This com
mon use of the fund for the benefit
