Who would in pleasure all their hours employ;
The precepts here of a divine old man
could recite. Tho” old, he still retain’d
His mauly sense, and encrgy of mind :
Viuous and wise he was, but not severe " ‘

‘He pitied man: and much he pitied those
Whom fulsely siiling fute has curs’d with means

For. not to name the pains that pleasure biings
:']'n connterpoise itself, relentless fute I
Forbids that we thro® gay voluptuons wilds
Should ever roam; and were the fites more kind,
‘Our narrow luxuries would soon be stale, |
'\Vere these exhaustless, nature would grow sick, ‘
iAu«l, cloy’d with pleasure, squeamishly complain
,That all was vanity, and life a dream,
‘l‘t:t nature rest: be busy for yourself,
'And for your friend; be busy ev’n in vain,

EAnd virtue, thro’ this labyrinth we tread.

On this foundation, which the secret shock |

l It is an awful commentary on the doc
‘trine of infidelity, that its most strenuous
Impportcrs have cither miserably falsified
'their sentiments in the moment of trial,
lor terminated their existence in obscuri
'lty and wretchedness, The gifted au
‘thor of the “Age of Reason,” passed the
ast years of his life in a manner which
’.‘thc meanest slave that ever trembled be
l!nouth the lash of a taskmaster, could hu\'ol
’nn cause to envy. Rosseau might in
‘deed be pointed out, as in some degrees
lan exception—but it is well known, tlmtt
the enthusiastic philosopher was a mise
“yable and disappointed man. He met
)Nvuth, it is true, with something like
calmness. But he had no pure and
flu-uutiful hope beyond the porishingl‘
things of the natural world.—He loved
"‘tlnc works of God for their exceeding
‘heauty—not for their manifestation of an
‘overruling intelligence. Life had be
| come a burthen to him, but his spirit re-
;cuilcd at the dampness and silence of the
sepulchre—the cold, unbroken sleep,and
(the slow wasting away of mortality. He
‘perished, a worshipper of that beauty
Hwhic:h but faintly shadows forth the un
;imnginul)lc glory of its Creator. At the
)'clnsing hour of day—when the broad
‘West was glowing like the gates of par
"ndiw, and the vine-hung hills of his
Jbouutihl land were bathed in the rich
light of sunset, the philosopher departed.
L"l'he last glavce of his glazing eye, WMI
to him an everlasting farewell to exis
tence—the last homage of a god-like in
tellect to holiness and beauty, The
blackness of darkness was before him;
the valley of the shadow of dcath was to
him unescapable and cterhal—the better
land beyond it was shrouded from his vis
ion, [ Whittier,
I Spring has opened upon us, with all
its vernal charms, Nature has spread
her green carpet over the fields, and
is beautifying the forest with her
vich and fragrant verdure, The hus
“bundmun is again casting his sced, con
fidently relying upon the promise of a
rich harvest, as the reward of his toils ;
the mechanic plies his trade in patience,
'content with small profits on his labor as
'a means of increasing his stock ; and the
‘merchant is waiting with anxious expec
tancy of spreading before his admiring
customers, the rich abundance of other

‘country ; arL planning to be more rich,

embrace, and still entices to the pursuit,

‘termine. Such is emphatically the life

‘which he toils to accomplish, and gen
‘lcrully lives to see disappointed. New
hopes succeed to the wreck of those
.which have preceded ; and new schemes
jinspire fresh confidence. Expectation

‘in differing parts of the city. Creeping
from door to door,—their features hag

To Purvie J. Scuvyrer, Esq.
“Portsmouth R. I. March, 3, 1828,
- “Dear Sir,—Agreeably to your re
‘quest, I send you a few particulars, de
tailing a very few among the many re
sults, arising from the discontinuing the
juse of spirituous liquors among the
workmen. It perhaps would not be inter
‘esting to you, nor is it convenient for me,
I‘to give you a very minute account of
‘what 1 have experienced in this way.—
If I understand you correctly, you wish
‘to know what has been the effect produc
ed here, by excluding grog from the
l‘works, and also from the workman’s hous
ics——und also, to inform you as to the
‘manncr in which this was brought about,
and apparently to the satisfaction of all
gpanies. Previously to entering into the
Idetuils of what has been done here, per
‘mit me to inform you, that this work of re
forming workmen from dram-drinking
{und habitual drunkenness, is not new
to me, I have been about eighteen
|ycars actively engaged in breaking %p
l‘old customs, stemming the common prej
iudices and habits of workmen, and when
'speaking of a work collectively, I have
!six different times proved victories ; and
il)y the blessing of lim who aids his own
|cause, I have triwmphed over many an
lOld and stubborn profligate, as individual
causes Ihave inmy family journal ma-
Iny memorandums of time, place, and
!numo, of such particular instances,
“ ‘Fromthe beginning of the year 1810,
jto this day, I have been the open and
undisguised enemy to giving workmen
liquor under any cireumstances; and the
;morc I am concerned with workmen, the
firmer I am established in my opinion.
(At the first colliery I 'was appointed =u
perintendent, there were about eighty
‘mcn and boys employed. The owner:,
lMcssrs. Morris and Kinnersly, were
).cuch of my opinion, and supported me in
‘;ull my plans. In about two years, we
‘had but few men or boys who would ¢i
ther drink, or permit drink to be taken at
;thcir pits or houses. Adjoining our
\works, was the largest colliery in that
!.scctiun of the country, called Kideron
fCollicry, belonging to the Gilbert family,
‘and carried on by John Gilhert, Fsq.
‘:who, unhappily for his workmen, belicv
ed and cncouraged the idea, that the
{more extravagant and ignorant a work
:‘mun was, he was the better servant, and
always a dependant on his employers.—
iiln 1812 he (Mr. Gilbert) died. Morris
“und Kinnersly dissolved partnership ;
cand Mr. Kinnersly purchased” the Kip
;crcn Colliery, and combined the two
works in our concern, and appointed me
fto the chief superintendency. At this
Kideren work, we found upwards of
three hundred men and boys, in the
;nmsl miserable & unhappy condition, and
‘ull the effects of dram-drinking and ha
‘bitual drunkenness. St, Paul’s lariguage,
fllunmns, chap. iii, from tenth to ninc
teenth verse, describes their stituation
‘much better than [ ean. Their Sundays,
“and other time not employed at the coli
ery, were devoted to cock-fighting, bull
‘baiting, gambling in all its forms suitcd
to their station, and to every vice at
tached to a life of dissipation. What [
saw achieved at this colliery in the way
‘of reformation, in the short space of threo
i years, has so confirmed me in my princi
ples, that I have never once since doubt
«d of effecting a change, nor have I
cever failed; and since that time, I have
Atriumphed over four other works, but lit
‘tle better than Kideren ; and if I am
spared a little longer at these mines, [
Iconfidently expect the same satisfactory
results, In 1813-14, the first year we
I_hnd the Kidg¢ren works, our accidents
"and killed were much less than previous
