THE ANTI-SLAVERY 1IUGLE.
Miscellaneous. THE ANNIVERSARY OF THOUGHT. The soul satisfies itsoir to-day, by a promise (or to-ntorrvw. "1 may not hart been just to-dny, but I will be." "I have now failed in judgment, bnt nzt time I shall not." Such confessions would be bitter did not hone also breathe its bet ter assurance. Yet the futuro finds the soul im perfect, and from its own deficiency it looks to the Ideal man. The IJoal man of the IW, was nil wise and all good, He communed with angels, He was tho Son of God. Rut that which is attainable for ono, is a sometime possibility fur all, and since every as piration of the human soul, must, somewhere, nc- cording to the perfect plan of tho I'niverso, find n adequate realization, it follows that every such aspiration must be a prophecy, whoso fulfillment is in no way uncertain. Every effort at improve ment, and every advance, is a herald of that which eometh in a future ago, and that again, of what will succeed it. The Ideal man of the Futuro then, is not a crea ture of tho imagination. He shall be clothed in flesh and blood, but he shall so comprehend and have dominion in nature, that he shall free his physical being from the accidents and diseases which flow from ignorance In man and want of culture in tho material world. He shall be so cle.ir of vision as to enter into the secrets of Crea tion in all its variety and hidJcn essence, and to trace, unerringly, all causa and effect. lie shall move in all socinl relations without discord. Ho shall be most glorious in his worship of Deity. Ho shall praise Him because of tho understand ing he has, of His wonderful works. Ho shrill, liko those of the Golden age, walk wiih angels, he eh all be no less than ono of the Sons of God. These things are attainable now, in degree, uot in fulness. Beforo these hopes can become actual ities, the human soul must every whero be eman cipated from every chi!n. This is the first boon overy whore striven for. Many armed contests aro the means of tyranny nud servile subjection. But when the oppressod strike their chuius will fire and battle axe, the echo tells of love for free dom even though it may not conquer it. One proof of this universal offering which humanity makes at tho altar of Liberty is seen in tho long continued observance of certain anniversaries. The thought which has at some tiiuo burst forth in daring deed, or which has been embodied by the individuality of a soul, whose proportions have excelled the mass, is cherished in tho heart of gen erntious, after, and foi the tbought8.sko these con spicuous expressions of it are reverenced. Yet every observance tends to mcro form and thoso who regard tho' form most punctiliously, are not always those whose hearts glow most fervently with the truth which long ago had its heroes and martyrs. And the ngos will be marked by new heroes and new forms. This outgrowth of tho bid is an incessantly workiug cause of revolution which by a steadily increasing force becomes final y the outward revolution of history. In all time an assertion of inherent right has been the leaven which has been working to purify and preserve the nations from imbecility and uni versal slavery. The more of such assertion which any tribe or nation has made, the more lofty and reverenced is their niche in the temple of the rust. When it is crushed and seemingly quenched, it rises with injuries burning, and degradation calling for vengeance. If the Serf has too little manhood, or if he be too utterly enslaved, he and bis brethren may all die out and pass to oblivion. But if the spirit of the Gods has dtscended upon thorn, they will throw off the oppressor's rule where it presses most sorely, and when in time. other restrictions are felt, the tide of combat shall reach yet highor and sweep the hated filing into the ocean of tho Past. When personal freedom is gained, there aro tho thousand tyrannies thought, law and custom, from which the motto Progress, bids reyolt. Such recurring anniversa ries of freedom have ever marked the world's his tory, and will continue to do so, until every person is truly a sovereign in the realm of his own indi viduality. It seems to bo an arrangement of Divine Provi dence, that when one race or nation, has by mode of existence, presented some fact or idea the world, it passes, like tho individual, to the gtave and its place is occupied by another, young er, and more vigorous race, who in their life and government, become a better index to the same truth, and also demonstrate new phases of civiliza tion. A nation's only security rests upon a due incor poration of all facts which portain to the well be- in of tho individual, into its institutions and gov ernment. Many of these may be learned by in lerence trom History, hut an unerring teacher found in the constitution of humanity. There here no clause of disputable construction as to legality of enslavement. That government which places any restriction r.pon the free, full, harmoni ous development of (he human soul, contains within itself the certain seeds of destruction; it the maker of its own ruin. It is from such decay and from such resurrection as follows, that the home of the Ideal man of tho future shall proceed and his time shall come; we have oi it, a sure prophecy. With these thoughts before us wo must tremble for the fate of our own nation. Can we boast our future when the Eagle of the Union, with huge talons, strikes the lifo of Liberty from millions, and with vulture like beak, threatens any one who may dure bid him defiance T May it not be that we shall shout Liberty, till as a notion, the tomb receives ns, and only the echo, not the fact, of that glorious word will mock our existence. who may nay that the foundation of our overthrow is laid deep in the frame work of our national edifice, aud that by cruelty and oppression we are planting, uud watering the seed in hearts full uprising, divine energy, which will in a coming day, overshadow us with its thick branches f We can only hope to escape such destruction entering the paths of Justice, Will our rulers lead us thither ? A, K. L. II. ANGOLA, April, 1856. THE CHEMISTRY OF FOOD. Liobig has been lecturing recently at Munich, the capital ot Havana, upon the chemistry oi lood A correspondent of the New Y'ork Tribune fur- lushes the following nbstraet of the views of great chemist in regard to the particular merits beer : Beer is worthless for the formation of bloou; is of valuo only to support respiration and to sup- til warmth, the nitrogenouf portion ot the bar ley becomes Sjluble in brewing, passes off in m eet beer, and is separated partly by boiling partly by fcrmontation, as lees. A little of tirz remain; the brewer makes it as littlo as po- ible, or else the beer sours easily. A chemist Munich eleven years ago, asserted that our brown tieer contained gum, two grains to the quart. 'i linking out of accoitut tie nitrogen which pears In beer in the form f ammonical salts, and estimating only that which it presents as gum, a man who drinks eleven pints of beer per day would get no more gum in a whole vcar than a five pound loaf of bread furnishes, llecr serves to mako people ft who are thin in flesh; it has the same of feet as starch in bread. It has its value in sup plying warmth, but not in tho formation of blood, it has its use also as a means of enjoyment and as a stimulant to the nerves, but that does not come into the account of chemistry, chemically the use of meat mnv be recommended with brend instead of beer. Liebig intimated, in conclusion, that tho best proportions of food for use were one of nitro gen to three of carbon the proportions in wo man's milk. ON THE KENTUCKY LIQUOR LAW.

BEHAVIOR IN RAIL-CARS. of of its to is is is of not not of by the of it the and the of Tho following article might be advantageously printed, wo think, by the Society for tho Diffusiou of L'usual Knowledge, and distributed gratuit ously along the different Railroad liues of the country. "Since Providence scorns to have ordained that Americans shall go by steam, and on wheels, to an extent unknown among any other people, it be comes us all to learn the art of riding. When we reflect how many miles every year an active citizen in this Republic is liable to be wheeled over the land, does not the art of using this time for the best purposes of enjoyment and improvement be comes quite important? Life is short enough, best fearfully short in our last-living day; and we grudge the precious time spent in the half ani mal existence that life in the sars is to the mass traveling people. Sinoo we must be boxed up fortnight or a month every year in this way, for the love of humanity let us learn to be rational creatures in our yeregrinations. "We wonder if railroad directors will ever cet rich enough to attend to a few items in the comfort ot the armies that ride in thoir vehicles; such lit tle facts, for example, as whether a hundred pio-! pie shall bo shut up a day or night in winter, in an oblong oveu reeking with vile cxhultations, alter nately heated to the pitch of frenzy and chilled the level of consumption ? or step from the same box in summer.cncrusted in every geological strata of a thousand mile region all for the want of little Yankee ingenuity employed in ventilation? Whether crowds of men, women and children shall be crowded, squeezed, bent double, mashed and lounced into jellr, as they are over all our great routes, for want of a little more sitting room? Whether the American citizen is to be lorced into a stato of chronic indigestion by the continuance of the internal messes, sardonically called 'break fast,' 'dinner,' 'supper,' and 're-freshments,' railroad stations ? But Americans have yet a great deal to learn the art of travelling. Perhaps we have no right expect that men, women and children, will be trans formed in the cars to what they are not at home breeding and character, but it sometimes appears to us that half the worl i reserves its cast-off hab its of manners and conduct, to wear in journeying. We wonder if it ever occurred to that well-dressed man at our right, that it is a greater insult to squirt tobacco juice on tlio floor of a room where a hundred people must sit, breathe and smell a day, than on a drawing-room carpet, where peoplo are to sit an hour? That genteel lady hind us would not. ask us to sit by an open window in her own house on a January morning, if made her a fashionable call; yet she opens a window, and gives us a draft across the neck, like a sharp sword, during a six hour's ride. Should we make a wedding call on that sentiinencl-looking young couple yonder, would they not be as polite in giving us the best seat as they are boorish now in driving up some good-natured farmer to roam in vain through crowded aisles for a resting place, whils they smuggle in his nest snoring imbecility? Would that dignified Voter and Mater 'am alias en- tertaiu a pai ty at their country house by gorging themselves and their little ones on their presence, Hour oy ny hour, witn ail thines aigestable and indigestable? Yet they are probably now in presence of better company than they evor enter tained. Who would rush to a supper in hie own house, or into the drawing-room of a friend, Americans on tho cars storm a public dinner-table or jam the passages of an express train? Alasl our countrymen, you have some things yet tolearn; for a birth in this great democracy does not neces sarily make a man a gentleman, or a woman a lady unless culture at home and 'on the road,' steps and helps out nature. "A little reflection on the ways and means making one's self comfortable, agreeable, and during a journey, would save people from presenting the uninspiring spectacle of yawning listlessnei8 or sleepy stupidity, varied by ravenous gluttony and barbarous etiquette, which they now so often do. Why cannot a man, about to travel a thousand or a hundred miles in winter, take along garments enough to ensure his bodily com fort during the journey, that he may not be frozen into a surly bear every time the stove cools below red heat, and can bleep an hour without dangor waking as hoarse as a crow ? Why can he not 10 uie cars in season, instead oi jumping on train at the nine and ninetieth hour, and prowling through a crowded carriage, stirrring everybody into bad humor by his efforts after a seat ? can he not restrain his appetite till dinner time, and not pare apples and munch parched corn, and craunch lozongers in everybody' face, nauseam. "We are old-fashioned enough to think a great deal can be learned by riding a day in a room fill ed with the representatives of every state of soci ety, and almost every nationality, through grand and beautiful rcenery of our chief railroad routts. It is not necessary to ask every man name and business, or stare in evory woman's face, to learn much by what you are compelled to hear and see during that contact with Jour traveling neighbors. "And n well-bred person will find so ninny occa sions for pleasant and instructive converse, lor the amcnitus o( life, for benevolence, tlmt his day will , betooshr.it.

INDIAN WAR IN OREGON. Gov. t'uny, of Oregon, is prosecuting, nt an enormous expense, a war of extermination a,'ninsi the Indians of that Territory. Ho has issued his prochimntion for two regiments of mounted volun teers, nnd issued scrip for the purchase of horses, fornge and payment of men to the amount, rumor says, of 4.000,000. Helms niado no requisition on Gen. Wool, military commander on tho Pacific,' for assistance, nor has tl.ero been ny rcquisioti made on him tor volunteers by tho l.'nited Slates officers, except in ono instance All the rest ot his operations have been commenced nnd carried on without any encouragement from or understand inirwith the 1'nitcd States military officers, who ought to have directed in such matters. On tho other hand, tho United States officers all sny that this proceeding is unnocessiry; that the Indians, ns a body, nro Incndly nnd (.esirons oi peace. Joel rainier, Uuperintcndati t ot Indian Affairs in Oregon, in Xovembor last, wrote to Gen V ool as follows: "I am satisfied that the Caynsea, ns a tribe, are desirous of maintaining peace, nnd that there must boon tho part of tho whites a departuro from the principles of justice, nnd a violation i f rights tc curcd this trido by the treaty, before they will be come a hostile party in this war. Such a step will be, in their approlicusion,a desperate last resort lor preservation. 1 Ins is also true ol the .expcrees. jneir uni form good conduct and friendship for our citizens render all intention on their part to mako .ar on us quite improbnblc. "J ho reported combination ol all those trinos with intent to wnce a war of extermination nsrainst the whites is.

In December 21st be writes at follows : "Believing us I do, llint the cause of the present difficulty in Southern Oregon is wholly to be ut-'. tributed to the acts of our own venule, I cannot but feel that it is our duly to adopt such measures, as will ton! to secure tho lives of those Indians,' and muint..in guarantees sccuifd to them by tre ity stipulations. The future will provo thnt this irar has been Juivil vjmn those Indians ayatnxl tlmr Kill, and iliat too, by a set of reckless vagabonds, for pecuniary and political ohjocts, nnd sanctioned by n numerous population, who regard the trea.-iirij of the l.'nited Stales a legitimate o'ljccl of plunder. the Indians in that district have been driven to desperation by acts of cruelty against their peo-l pie; treaties hare been violated, and acts of bur-1 parity committed by those claiming to be citizens that would disgrace the innst barbarous nations! of the earth; and if none but those who pcryetra- ted such nets were to be affected by this war, might look upon it with indifference, but unhappily: this is not the cas.o." a to a at in to in On December 5th.

In this section of conn- try no dancer existed which required cither tho services of the volunteers or extravagant prices which have been paid in scrip for the horses nnd forage, as well as everything else required for the volunteers. If volunteers were required at all, was in tho Reguo lliver county nnd nlong Pugctj Sound, but not to defend the inhabitants of either Oregon or Washington Territories against tho In-j dians whe made or threatened them with war, re- siding east of the Cascade Mountains." T in i i ii January 10th, he adds "In Oregon, as well as m the Xorthern part Calitomia, many whites are for exterminating Indians. This feeling is engendered by two news papers that go lor extermination, aid is more less possessed by tho volunteers as well as others not enrolled under the banners of Governor Curry. As long as individual war is permitted and paid by tlio United states, and which is expected by the citizens of Oregon, we shall have no peace.and the war may bo prolonged indefinitely, especially as it is generally asserted that the present war is godsend to the peoplo." It is very possible that individual Indians have been thievish nnd quarrelsome, but it would appear from the above that their acts havo been seized ns n iustific.ition for nn exterminating war. and good grasp into tho United Statos Treasury.

WecMy Edition bet wren 80,000 and 90,900. In issuing their Prospectus for IWfi, the propri etors of (he Post tako it for granted, that the pah-" he aro already tolerably w?U acquainted with tk character of a paper that has grown strong during' tho storms nnd sunshine of THIKTY-FOUK YEABS. Their object nlwnys has been, ns it re mains to be to publish a weekly pnper for the fimi ly circle, which shall not only amuse, but also in struct nnd improve, those who may read it. To accomplish this object, the best nrticlcs are selected or condensed from foreign and domestic periodicals, and original articles of an instructive character procured, when possible. Letters from Foreign Lands; the most interest ing portiuiis of lho M eekly News of the world; ."sketches ol I.ilc, Adventure nnd l hnracter; selec ted and Original Articles upon Agriculture; Ac count of tlio Produce nnd Stock Markets; and a Bank Xoto List nre included among the solid infor mation to be constantly found in the Post. But the mind requires a wider rnnge it has fa culties which delight in tlio humorous and lively, the imaginative and poetical. These faculties also must have their appropriate food, else they become enfeebled, nnd ns a consequence, tho intellect bo comes narrow nnd one-sided, nnd is not able to take aii'orilargcd and generous view of human nature and its destiny. To satisfy those heaveii-implnn-tod cravings of our mental brin, we devote a fair proportion of tho Post to FICTIOX, POETRY and 11UMOR. Among our contributors in Ihe first two of the above Departments, aro several of tho most gifted writers in tho land. Wo also draw freely for Fic tion and Poetry upon the best periodicals in this country nnd Great Britain. We design commen cing a Xcw Story by Mrs. Sot TiiwoHTH, nutltnr of "The Deserted Wife," 'Miriam," &c, in our first paper of January next. EXGRAYIXGS, illustrative of important pla ces and actions, of Agricultural and other new in ventions, with others of a Humorous, though re fined character, are also ficcly given. NOTICES OF THE PRESS. This is ono of flic few large papers filled with life and thought, instead oT lumbering trash. Its management is marked by liberality, courtesy, ability and tact. It employs the best "literary tal ent, and spares no pains or expense. As a family pnper, one of literary and general intelligence, we cordially recommend it. Cayuga Chief, Auburn, X. II Our readers may rely upon it, that Deacon and Peterson will be as good as their word. So far as we canjudge by years of observation, those publish ers do rather more than they promise; nnd their paper is edited with marked ability. It is singular ly free from silly scntiinenmlism and bluster, but is of healthy tone on nil subjects, always moderate in iiingunge, mi always miiujy advocating the right. We find it ono of the most generally at tractive papers in ourexchange. Saturduy Visitor l'ittsbug l'a. the , It is the best literary nnd family paper in Union. Hock Islander, Hock Island, III. It is emphatically one of the very best literary newspapers in the whole country, and deserves the unparallcd success with which it has met under its pres-cut enlightened nnd liberal proprietorship. The greater its circulation in this State, the less, probably, is sur gain pecuniarily ; yet we must pronounce it a nust excellent journal, and worthy the patronage of everybody. The contributors to tho Post nro nmong the finest writers in America, and the editor's articles are always characterized by truth aud tussle. Jersey Blue, Camden, X. J. We hnve heretofore spoken in hich terms of the merits of tho Post.ns ono of the best papers on our exchange list, nnd we regnrd it as ono of the best literary papers to be found anywhere. Its edito rials aro written with ability, nnd tako a liberal, independent and comprehensive view of men nnd things. Star and Advertiser, Wriyhtsville, Pa.
