Personal IxDF.rtNPENCE. By : personal
independence, wu mean that self-reliant spirit
which leads one to reg.lnto his conduct by
the dictates of his own judgment that sterl
ing quality which distinguishes the man
from the mere automaton. Founded on
conscious integrity, and a strong, determined
will, it may bo regarded one of tho Biircst
evidence of true manliness. Let a man be
clothed iu the garb of his own individuality-
let him net always in accordance with nn
educated sense of duty let hiifl hold uud
fuel himself diroctly responsible for his nets
and he must deserve, as well ns win, the ad.
miration and respect of his follows. Man, it
is true, is a social being, und can find hap.
pines only by communion with his kind;
but mentally, each should bo for himself
ouch should think for himself so that the
modified results of action mid reaction may
bo realized. There is, indeed, in personal
independence, a dignity uud loftiness which
make It an adoring characteristic of manhood
.and youth, Wu cannot concclvo of a grand.
er spectacle than that afforded by him who,
amid danger and temptation and scorn, calm
ly pursues the path uf duty, rough though it
be, uud hedged in by numerous perils.

THE AMERICAN SENTIMENT.
From the N. . Mirror.
Beneath the foam and twrsensc which
have quite obscured to the superficial gnzo
the vital truth that lies at the heart of the
American movement, tho student of the past
easily detects that independent sentiment of
nalitmality which animated our fathers, in
their resistance to foreign despotic rule, and
iu their heroic struggle to sever the tie that
bound them to the mother country. It was
a sentiment bred on the soil, nurtured by the
hardships of the wilderness, nnd emboldened
by the success that hud attended their efforts
to found an empire in a new world, against
obstacles nnd dangers before which n less
hurdy raco would hnvo fallen.' And throng-
out tho formative stages of tho American
Republic, Hint sentiment paramount in
every etep taken to consolidate the Union,
nnd thus to derive a substantial, common
benefit, from a Revolution 'sustuincd against
such fearful odds, nnd a nationality so hardly
won.
The spirit which actuated our fathers, is
identical with that which has ever since im
pelled the American people to guard their
rights and their liberties from foreign inter
fcrcncc. This spirit has increased with the
growth of the country with the extension
of the boundaries of the Republic, until the
Atlantic joins hands with the Pacific, nnd
tho American Eagle exteuds its protecting
aegis over a people more prosperous und
weullhy.in all the elements of national greaU
uess, than any upon which the sun ever
shone. It is not, therefore, a fanaticism of
modern times, which hus led to that more
vigorous manifestation of the American Hen
timent w Inch hus of lute grown into n move
ment of gigantic force ; but n well considered
conviction of the people that tho welfare of n
continent, subdued by their indomitable tner.
gy and toil, should bo entrusted, not to the
ignorant domination of a foreign rabble, but
to the patriotism nnd intelligence of those
born on the soil, und cherishing lively recol
lections of the sacrifices by which their liber
ties weio secured.
It is not religious bigotry it is not n fa.
nntical prejudice against the refugees from
Ireland, from Germany, or any other country
it is not the ism of that secret organization
rejoicing in the knieknnmo of Know Noth
ings which runs through this sentiment of
.Miliunulily of Americanism. It is u far
nobler, higher, and more pervading uspira
lion, which dates back to the foundation of
tho Republic, nnd anterior to that, coursed
through tho veins of tho Pilgrim Fathers
when they crossed tho blue waves to escape
religions persecution, and sought the New
World ns n home for themselves and their
posterity. Religious bigotry has afflicted all
ages nnd countries. It is inseparable from
the superstition which is inherent in tho uu
enlightened' mind. It is a perpetual attend
unt of all religions, and is rather antagonistic

bears no-affinity to religious intolerance.
Such a relationship would rob it of its very
being, and make the fabric of national great
ness it has rented, to crumble into the dust.
Tho sentiment of which wo speak is part of
our national hie, and throbs in every pulsu.
tion of the American heart. Washington
commemorated it in his Farewell Address
when he warned us against "untangling al
liances" with foreign powers, and urged the
importance oi educating tno musses, as a
qualification for freedom. Who eould not
see in the burning words of that last mani
festo of the father of his country, a patriotic
warning not only against tho evil influence
of foreign Governments, but tho ignorant
multitudes who would flock to our shores,
and claim the prerogatives of citizens of the
model Republic, without identifying them.

Fortunately tho exigenciea of our position,
nnd tho necessity lor subduing a new conti

inventive genius of the country; and in the
useful arts we have for outstripped the trans

follow our lead in this high department of
art, and havo learned to respect the genius of
our inventors, und the skill of our mechanics
and nrtizans. It will soon be our privilege
to lead the world in enterprise and commer

unfortuiiate cte.itifriTVr,6rte rHy pleasure
consists iu admiration, und whose life-lonir
motive is variety. The affection of youthful
costume, the childish lisp and inane ogle, the
artifices of the toilet, the eagerness for notice,
und an insatiable nppetits for compliment,
are, morally speaking, iu hideous contrast to
gray hairs, crows' feet, and the full-grown
evidences of maternal responsibility. To see
theso traditional charmers on the iiii lite for
beans among younger and fairer aspirants, to
watch the sickly smile, tho fitful glance of
triumph or envy, the faded yet uneasy look
and dubious complacency, und to associate
theso with ono who has gone through the
deepest human experience, und yet remains
frivolous and vain, is far more provocative of
sorrow than of mirth; it is old ago without
tho love and honor which should attend it

Now dren, let it bo understood, it is not
npon a man's religion, or his forms of relig.
inn that the American party wars, but upon
American Pupal Allegiance, nnd Pap.il Gov.
eminent in America. Protestantism is, in
Catholic countrii-, "a crime," we know, and
punished ns "a crime" iu Italy and S;tain; but
CalholicUm is no rriuie here, disqualifies no
one for olliee, nnd deprives no one ol" citizen
ship.. Nuy, absolute Papal allegiance is no
crime here; every man that pleases enn be as
much of a Papist as he pleases. All tlie
blessings nnd privileges uf our country. ml
of our Government, -are recognized ris tirs,
even in tho American party. KrYe only that
with this man tnus owing' Papul aiisunee,

It Is n sad thing to be peevish, fretful and
discontented. There nre limes and seasons
w hen il is almost impossible to rally a re

rnpparctilly little or no cause for despondeuey.
l.ut these, with the great im.jori'y of the hu

hetisions; and even if prosperous for the
present, they predict some sad calamity In the
future, and thus prove themselves morbidly
infirm, nnd in fact, insensible to the blessings
of Providence. The cflect is not only to dis.
Iress themselves, but to nnnoy and disquiet
others. They are in the moral world, what
a passing cloud is iu tho physical. They cast
a gloom over everything tor the moment, and
serve to drive away the sunny sinfliiences
which nro soadmirublycnlculated to brighten
the pathway of life. In what happy contrast
is thu cheerful Sjiintlho individual whose
heart is full of kindness nnd generosity, w ho
is ever ready to say u good word, or to do a
benevolent net, and whose duily life may be
likened to u constant beam of sunshine! He
may lie disturbed nnd depressed for the mo
ment, but it will only be for a moment. A
shadow may pass over his brow, and silence
may seal his lips, but his natural buuyuticy
will soon acquire the ascendant und his joyous
laugh aud cheerful smile will soon bo heard
and seen again. If he cannot say anything
complimentary, he has the good sense uud
manly feeling to keep his peace. If he can
not praise hu will nut blame. Scandal has no
charms for him, and malignity is utterly for
eign to his disposition. Ileconstantly tries lo
gladden and encourage, to cheer the despond
iug and uufuituuute, to assist and relievo to
the extent of his ability. The head of a house
hold, or the masterspirit of uu establishment,
possesses, to. a considerable extent, the means
of making or muring the comfort and happi.
ness of nil who look up to, depend upon, or
feel the exercise of Ins influence! Imagine u
peevish, fretful and dissatisfied individual un.
der theso circumstances! His very appearance
creates a shudder, tor ho is certain to Bay
something harsh, cold ur uncivil, and, thus to
irritatu Icelmgs, trample upon sensibilities, or
stimulate prejudices nnd passion. Hu is mis
erable himself and, according to tho old adage,
inlserry loves company. He moves about
like a troubled spirit, and instead of a smile,
a cheering word aud nn encouraging look, a
frown, a rebuke or a grumble are certain to
characterize his progress. HuW UlUcli belter

' THE FATE OF TURKEY. :
: The Lynchburg Virginian says: ...
In tho course of the recent debrile in tho
Ilrilish House of Lords, on the Turkish Loan
bill. Eurl Grey made the extraordinary decla
ration, that no man In his senses could believe
that the Turkish. Government would be iu
existence forty years hence. No matter w hat
may bo the issue of the . w arbetweu Russia
und tlie Western powers, Earl Grey holds,
that the fato of the Ottoman cmpiro issealed.
The plain inference from his prediction is
that if France nnd England triumph over tlie
Czar iu the present struggle, they will nboU
Ish tho Sultan's Empire, and appropriate his
dominions to themselves, whilst the Russian .
monarch .will do thu same thing in case h
should bu successful. We imagine that the
sentiment of Earl Grey will not be particu. '
larly relished by the Sultan. This feeble po-.
teiitale is styled by the Queen ol England,'
on nil public occasions, her "faithful ally;
nnd ho bus been taught to believe that the
Eastern war was undertaken fur tlie sole
purpose or defending the integrity of his em
me. Uefore the war commenced, it was
proclaimed again nnd again by llrlilsli states- .
men of nil parties '.hat Ihe continued rxis.
tenco of the Ottoman empire was iibsolutcly
essential to tho maintenance of the balance
of power iu Europe and that the Sultiui's
throne should bo propped lip at all hazards
and at whatever rost. Rut uow one of tho
most distinouished statesmen of Enohnol de
clares, with the most perfect coolness and
nonchalance that Turhvy cannot possibly
exist, as an independent "potter, forty year
longer, aud that no man in his senses expects
that she will. This is but u reiteration of
the sentiment of the Czar, that the Turk is
"a sick man," and lliat measures Bhould bo
Inken relative to the disposition of his. prop,
crty after his deecaso.
A Small Potato Husband Lost. Mrs.
Smith has lost her husband. She suspects
that he ran sway with another man's wife,
wliich, of course, Smith oui'lit not to have
done without her consent. These Smiths
particularly the masculine Smiths arc, as is
notorious, a rather scaly set. Several of them
have been tr ins-ported to Botany Hay, and
iiutte n number havo lieeti hung nut enou"h,
it would seem How a smait.proper woman,
like the InJy whoso advertisement wo copy,
ever allotted herself to bo wheedled into
marrying a Smith, is"not clear. It is pleasant,
however, to know that she bei.rs up against
her atlnctions like a true woman. All she
asks Is to gi't her touguo at Ihe rascally ab
sconding Smith for half nn hour, and she will
be satisfied j' Perhaps, after all, it was a con
siderable amount of experimental knowledge
of tho power of Mrs. Smith's tongue that
caused Mr. Smith to decamp. If so, it
is is not likely that 2 wilt tempt him. to
return.
But we are anticipating the advertisement,
