Mr. Meagher will probably arrive about the middle of the month, since he was to have left New York on the 20th of December. As he intends to give a course of public lectures in this city, the following extracts from some nf his speeches will bo of interest, and give some itle» nf bi« oloqucneo. His oratory is of the Irish style, and more similar to the French than to the American or English. He has al ways commanded very large audiences in the East; but his lectures have far more interest to the hearer than to the reader, and would not give him the reputation as a writer which he has as an orator. “ Italy! at whose tombs the poets of the Christian world have knelt and received their inspiration—ltaly ! amid the ruins of whose forum the orators of the world have learned to sway the souls of men, and guide them, like the coursers of the sun, through all climes and seasons, changing darkness into light, and giving heat to the coldest clay—ltaly ! from whose radiant skies the sculptor draws down the fire that quickens the marble into life, and bids it take those wondrous forms which shall perish only when the stars change into drops of blood and fall to earth—ltaly! where religion, claiming the noblest genius as her handmaid, has reared the loftiest temples to the-Divinity, and, with a pomp which in the temple of the Caesars never shone, attracts the proudest children of the earth to the cere monies of her immortal faith—ltaly! the brilliant, and the gifted—ltaly! Italy is in arms! ****** Spurn me! I have been jealous of my freedom, and, in the pursuit of liberty, have scorned to work in shackles. Spurn me! I have fought my own way through the storm of politics, and have played, 1 think, no cow ard’s part upon the way. Spurn me! I loathe the gold of England, and deem them slaves who would accept it. Spurn me! I will not beg a bribe for any of you—l will strike no pedlar’s bargain between the minis ter and the people. Spurn me! I have rais ed my voice against the tricks and vices of Irish politics, and havQ.jweachcd the attain ment of noble poble means. Spurn me! I have claimo£jbr my country the po sition and, the. jlow#a Vhich none amongst yfu. save the tame and venal, will refuse to claim, and, in doing ( this. I have acted as be came a free, unpensioned citizen. ***** Peace, loyalty, and debasement, forsooth! A stagnant society, breeding in its bosom sli my, sluggish things, which to the surface make their way by stealth, and there for a season creep, cringe, and glitter in the glare of a provincial royalty! Peace, loyalty, and debasement! A mass of pauperism—shovel- led off the land, stocked in fever sheds and poorhouscs, shipped to Canadian swamps— rags, and pestilence, and vermin! Behold the rule of England, and in that rule behold humanity dethroned, and Providence blas phemed ! To keep up this abomination, they enact their laws of felony. To sweep away the abomination, wc must break through their laws. Should the laws fail, they will hedge in the abomination with their bayonets and their gibbets. These, too, shall give way before the torrent of fire which gathers in the soul of the people. The question so long debated —debated years ago on Helds of blood—de bated latterly in a venal senate, amid the jeers and yells of faction—the question, as to who shall be the owners of this island, must be this year determined. The end is at hand, and so unite and arm!” When anger rushes, unrestrained, to action, like a hot steed, it stumbles on its way. The man of thought strikes deepest and strikes safely. - [Savage. TO AN ABSENT FRIEND. Selected for the Telegraph, by C . The Eloquence of T. P, Meagher. GRASS VALLEY, CALIFORNIA, THURSDAY, JANUARY 19, 1854. COMPLIMENTARY SUPPER TO Mr. A. A. SARGENT. Grass Valley, Jan. 7, 185-1. A. A. Sargent, Esq. Bear Sir .—Understanding that you have disposed of your interest in the Nevada Jour nal, with a view of closing your Editorial career in our county, w 7 e take this occasion of testifying our admiration of your general course in conducting that able Journal, and in an apprcciation.of your ervices, your in dependent and energetic character, we re spectfully solicit your attendance at a social dinner, at Grass Valley, upon any day nest Week, which will best suit your convenience. Respectfully, yours, A. Dalano, ueo. W. Woodworth, Cakt. John Day, C. R. Edwards, James Delavan, Z. H. Denman, Geo. Wood, AV. Loctzenheiser, C. D. Cleveland, E. A. Tompkins, Geo. D. Dorkin, C. Allen, Wm. E. Jones, S. L. Bosworth, Jos. S. Conn, Ricu’d. Tidbals, J. M. Fouse, Geo. N. Crandall, J. W. Oliver, Chas. B. Haskell, A. M. Davis, W. Lilly. Nevada, January Bth, 185-1. Gentlemen ' —Your favor of the 7th, is bs fore mo. It is a source of deep gratification I to me that at the close of a nearly three years labor in the editorship of the Journal, during a period when exciting questions have oesu pied attention, I am able to retire with die good wishes of so many sincere friends ■ throughout the country. At Grass A 7 alley, I have always received warm encouragement and sympathy, and go where I may, I shell always retain lively recollections of my ma ny friends there. With the same frankness with which it is extended, I accept your prof fered hospitality, and will do myself the hon or to visit you on Tuesday, the 10th iusf. Respectfully yours, A. A. SARGEXT. To Messrs. Delano, Dean, Day, Sykes, and others. The Supper.—This was an excellent one J served np in a very superior style, and alto gether in good keeping with the enviable reputation which the “Epicurean” has alrea dy attained. After doing full justice to the supper, the cloth was removed, when Mr. Delano, the Chairman, arose, and after briefly alluding to the cause of their assembling, the indepen dent and manly way in which the Nevada Journal had been conducted under supervis ion of Mr. Sargent, by whom it had acquired an enviable reputation among the Journals of our State, adding that this was no partizan meeting, and he was glad to sec men of both political parties present, who desired to sus tain a free and unshackled Press, the Bulwork of our Nation.—He offered the following sen timent : Our Guest. May his future course be as prosperous as his past has been energetic and honorable, and with the good opinion of his friends, may he win golden ones sufficient to make the downhill of life comfortable and happy. My Friends : It is with a grateful heart that I acknowl edge your kindness this evening. Your par tiality has selected me as an object of honor by this demonstration, and while I must de clare my own sense of unworthiness, I most sensibly feel the value of the courtesies you extend, as an endorsement of that line of con duct I have felt it my duty to pursue in my editorial capacity, I see around me men. as sembled without distinction of party—forget ting the battles in which we have fought side by side, or as warmly in opposition, but now met in cordiality and good fellowship. Al low me to say, I feel the present the proudest moment of my life. I should indeed be in sensible were I untouched by the friendly de monstrations ol this occasion. In them, I learn a lesson that independence and pcrsc verence, though for a time they may enmity, in the end must command the respect of the community. In the conduct of a‘pa per in this county, I have laid down certain principles for my guidance, and I believe no one, not even my enemies, if such I have, will charge mo with departing from these. First. | to fully establish in my own mind convic- ( tionsu P° n exciting questions, or questions i «| at enlist attention. Second, to receive ad j v * ce fr° m all, dictation from none. Third I to hold myself independent of cliques and I factions. Fourth, after determining upon a course of action, to pursue it in contempt of threats or personal considerations. I believe in no other principles can a press be useful’ in maintaining its dignity. The duty 0 f the editor is not to feel after public opinion—to take his cue from his cotemporaries, and fear to form or express bis own convictions it i s to lead the column of public sentiment-to throw himself into the van, and to secure for his convictions their prevalence in the com munity. By a hesitating and timid course he betrays his incapacity for his position’ while the public cease to rely on his Journal as a source of information or direction. By the free and enlightened press of the world mankind has been lifted upward to a nobler destiny. Science has been encouraged; litera ture has grown from the amusement of the few to the instruction of the many, while urged by the progressive spirit of the press; education is becoming diffused to all classes. To such an extent has the influence of the press vindicated itself, that in this country, no more infallible test of the political, social and moral condition of a people can be found, than is supplied by the conditions under which its press acts, and the time it assumes. Wherever the press has uncontrolled action, then, governments of limited powers will be found, —a people that is prosperous, intelli gent, and happy, and who keep a vigilant guard on their rights. But wherever despot ism lifts its head, and spreads its deleterious influences, the first enemy it assaults is the in dependent press ; nor is it secure till that pros.-'h blotted Qiu/W transformed into the servile instrument of power. Thus is it on the abroad continent of Europe, where the press is but tbe tongue of the powers that be. But thank God, gentlemen, we. may well lx>- lievc the power of despotism is broken—that it now lingers like the shades of night in the path of coming dawn. The present era of the world combines elements of interest that no past one has equalled. The seeds of free dom and constitutional government have been blown across the ocean, and from Eng land, and taking accidental but firm root in the continent, are now springing to life and beauty. Every glimpse from the old world reveals the contention of the rival forces of tyranny and liberty, sometimes avowed and open, by means of bloody wars, sometimes dark and noiseless, but still active and reso lute. For one. I look upon the present as pect of European affairs as one of the most important and interesting that has ever been presented, not excepting the memorable Hun garian revolution. It is an era marked with the progress of events that will telljvith weighty effect on the destinies of the globe. A gigantic power, whose car has been anoth er juggernaut, rolling on over the necks and hearts of people, which for two centuries have pursued a course of outward aggres sion and inward aggrandisement, till its name has become synonymous with encroachment, and its wars have become incessant, is now aiming to crush out another and independent power, to give more scope and verge to its own powers of aggression. To effect this end, it has launched ponderous armies upon its selected adversary,«c’z?ng its provinces and its revenues, and now raises an embattled | front on the Danube, preparatory to the last fell swoop by which it intends to annihiliate its victim. On the other hand, we sec a peo ple that had passed for barbarians, reenpera tives from the excesses of the past, assuming a tone worthy of an enlightened nation, granting universal tolerance, and winning the respect and sympathy of the world for their cause. We see them awaking from a lethargy of half a century, and springing to the field with the ardor of yore, to battle, not now for the creed and by the sword of Mahomet, but for principles that a Christian nation might be proud to maintain. And how stands the spectacle. The Turk is as powerful when inspired by a feeling of noble aims, as when he battled only for dominat ion. We have seen him break with an inferior force the serried files of Russia, and send the Bear back to his quarters after much rougher handling than suits his majesty. In this gathering tempest, the nations of Europe, and especially the masses, look on with vital in terest. In the raging elements, there is safe ty, The wars of Europe of the past one hundred years, have hastened the bringing in of liberty, though for the time, they bore with crushing force on the people. Through the war path alone lies the track of liberty. Better that blood flow over the throne than under it! By the contention of Princes and Kings, their power is diminished, the victor alike with the vanquished. The debts of Eu rope, incurred in these wars, though they bind capitalists to the existing order of things, arc nevertheless guarantees and pledges for free dom. Only by Avar, open or covert, can tbe governments of Europe be maintained; but such wars require expensive establishments, and as year rolls on year, and nations exceed their income, the time must come when they will pass the limit of endurance and fall. A general European war in this year of 1854, would leave many of the governments of Europe without means of quelling their own subjects to continued subjection. The most interesting aspect of this Turkish question is, that it must involve the governments of Eu rope in its progress, and thus open a door for the freedom of the peonlo of Europe. No one can doubt that, were Russia humbled, Austria alone cannot keep in subjection its rebellious province of Hungary. It was on ly by Russian pressure that Hungary was prevented by achieving freedom in its late struggle. Hungary free, Italy and Germany would unite with it, and the powers of Aus tria and Prussia would jade in their aim. The aspirations of the people of Europe are lifted continually for an opportunity for free dom, and providence is opening the war. But, gentlemen, we need not visit the con tinent of Europe to* Cud objects worthy of our attention. The Speaker then adverted to the improve ments that had taken place In California within the remembrance of many of those present. We had seen the State spring from confusion to order, from a limited population to be a great people. In this county particu larly, a hardy race of men had been at work. He remembered Grass Valley, when it had but five houses. Now it had handsome hous es and hotels, ponderous mills, school-houses, aud churches; its telegraph that flashed in telligence from city to city, and its Telegraph that brought it to the domestic hearth. He saw around him men, who had help work these changes, and like Byron, could say— “ All of which I saw, aud part I was. ' ’ In conclusion, he expressed his thanks for thcijdjid doiacrfisau-alioii of the evunii'g, aud. gave the following sentiment r The Grass rdlley Telegraph , —May sha people always give it a Roland for an Oliver. For continuation of exercises, see Editorial page. OF THOUGHT. Professor Thomas Rainey, in a recent lec ture, delivered before the United States Me iu its aptitudes, Odds aud Eads,” thus beau tifully expresses important truths, which are well worthy the thought of all young men : “The idea of the age is not what do you believe, but what do you know, aud what can yon do ? This query appeals with peculiar force to every young man, •as he enters his trade or profession, and especially when he seeks employment from others who seldom give their money but for a consideration. A young man wdio deceives himself by assum ing responsibilities that he cannot discharge, finds that the failure wounds him for life, and influences every subsequent action. Most young men possess a tendency toward the in dulgence of the wildest imagination. They fondly dream of bliss or power, without mak ing one step toward the attainment of cither. They cut themselves fully loose from all the shores of real life, and with full sail, without a pilot, no unerring compass of experience, skim away into the unknown seas of specu lation and fancy, reckless alike of all the breakers that lie along the coast of youth, or the fearful maelstrom which ere long swal lows all their reckless hopes. • “Y r oung gentlemen, it becomes you to la bor. Idleness is apt to picture to you that “good time coming,” when, free fftm toil and care, you can learn all things as by intui tion. Bo not deceived—that day will never come. You must gather the gems of knowl edge as they are turned up day by day by the ploughshare of experience and toil. Ambi tion, too, becomes you. It is your privilege, in our beloved country, to do whatever man has done or man may do. It is right that you should realize your privilege to tread in any path that leads to greatness or renown. “I know that the young mechanic frequent ly feels disheartened. He enters life without a flourish of the “family” trumpet. He bears no flaming letters of introduction all relative to what his father, his uncle, or some one of the same name, was, or did. He is to be the architect of his own fortune or fame. He is a stranger, and frequently feels like a pilgrim, too. He is a foreigner, for he comes up from the unknown walks of life ; and thank God for these and such. He is not compelled to fritter and waste his genius, im molate his life iu family pomp, parade and importance, in the genealogy of a defunct family, and bond his mind to science rather than to the mysterious genealogy of a “ coat of arms.” A noble spirit moves him—his soul is nerved by truth and thought. But so ciety discourages his approaches, although it tolerates him in the abstract. Its language to him is— “ Honor and wealth from no exertion lino, Clicat all you can, and tell aa many lies.” Society, instead of surrounding him with its real sympathies, taking him to its honors, and familiarizing him with elevating and en nobling associations, keeps him at a distance, until by act upon act, and triumph upon tri umph, he has struggled up and fought his way into usefulness and renown. And it is truly painful to sec how many young men of glowing souls, thus discarded from the society of the virtuous and good, turn almost by in stinctive necessity, to the downward path of ruin, and end the lives of usefulness and hon or w’hich they have proposed to society, but which it has rejected, in loose abandonment and shame. But be not dismayed, young man, when society leaves you alone. It thus rejected every one of the bright names that glow on the history of greatness. AVhile the rejection has abandoned or ruined thousands, it only nerved the ambition of the earnest few, and the more certainly hurried them on to greatness. Nothing is stable but labor. The follies of two, or at most three genera tions of those yomenvy, will, with unerring certainty, bring them to the lower side of the wheel again; until their sons and grandsons coming again from the unknown walks, with out family prestige , fame or power, shall turn to honest toil to gain a name.” Mrs. Partington says her minister preached about the parody of the probable « • son. ’ NOBLES PASS. —Dr. Wozencraft. The Marysville Herald says :—A private letter from Dr. Wozencraft, whose intention to explore Noble’s Pass, during this winter, was noticed in this paper a short time since, has been placed in our possession, from which we are permitted to make the following ex tracts. We much regret the difficulties and disappointments he has met, and sincerely hope that lie may bo enabled to execute his purpose agreeable to his original intention. Fort Reading, } January Ist, 185 L | Friend Sir: —After .much delay, aqd ma ny disappointments, I am about to start out on the exploring through the SierraJ^evada. The eogi'acer will not accompany me at the present time,—want of the diffi culty of making sc survey in the inclement season, are assigned as the reason, and at the same time, I am urged to make the winter exploration, and in the event of forcing my way through the snows, and thus proving the practicability of the route, the instrumental survey will, or can be made in the Spring. It is thought to be all sufficient for the pres ent, to make the examination without instru ments-; indeed, all will depend on the results of the present trip. I expect to start in the morning with eight good men, most of them employed by me for ' the purpose, and may be.back in two weeks. I am sorry to say that I have had no infor mation from any of the parties who had prof fered to assist me, by raising funds; and should they fail to do so, I shall be saddled with debts that will be difficult for me to pay. The people of Shasta having determined to make a survey in the Spring, were unwil ling to aid me, and yet, all will depend on the results of the present trip—for it is well known, that the Pass presents no obstacle to the .construction of a railroad, in the summer months, and it should be known, thht in the event of failing to forward a favorable report on to the Atlantic States by the Ist of March, that the location of the road here, will be lost, through default of such report. The good people of Red Bluffs, were more prompt, and aided me materially in getting my supplies and provisions. I may meet with more formidable obstacles than have been heretofore anticipated, but I am yet, as sanguine of success, as at any for mer period. Yours, truly, (in haste,) 0. M. WOZENCRAFT. Woman's Love.— How few women have ever been in love. How few ever marry from election! They marry because they are ask ed, and because the marriage is suitable. It is their vocation to be married, parents ap prove and they have no other attachment. Any observant person living in society, where there is a continual marrying and giving in marriage, must be struck with this fact. Cu pid’s quiver must be exhausted, or his arrow blunt, as he pierces few hearts now. I in cline to think that a girl really in love, one who has the evident symptoms of the mala dy, would be thought very improper ; yet 1 have often fancied that there must be a man born in the world for every woman; one whom to see would be to love, to reverence, to .adore; one with whom her sympathies would entirely blond, that she would recog nize him at once as her true lord. Now and then these pairs come together, and wo to her that meets this other self too late ! Women would be more merciful if they did not, through ignorance and thoughtlessness, mea sure the temptation of others by their own experience. —Adventures of Beauty, by Mrs. Crewe. ffTF It is strange how hearts beat in sym pathy, yet arc strangers to communion and fellowship! Iu life there is not too much of beauty, yet we exclude from the heart the very holiest of all beauty by shutting up within the soul our own thrilling thoughts of life and its unsyllablcd emotions. Society has drawn the barrier, and who dares violate its false and unnatural etiquette! Not the woman of genius and truth, for she is observ ed of all, and she dare not say to the heart that beats with the same inspiration as her own, “ closely to mo, and let us commune to gether,"—not to the man of high and holy thought, for he is singled out as a pattern of propriety, and communion with strangers would but touch the tongue of gossip with slander, and render his life bitterness.—So ciety has bound the world of emotion and truth with false barriers, and the heart that longs for friendship and communion, above the hollow profession of etiquette, must com mune alone with itself, and go on thro’ life, with its longings uasated. except, perhaps, as it revels in the beauty of the world of Poe try.—Pacific. Premium on Babies.—We find in the papers the following: “At the late Georgia State Fair a premium was offered for the best look ing native baby, and it was taken by a “pro mising” daughter -of Robert Glover. Next year the premium for the same article will bo SSO. The competition will lie brisk, and we may soon expect an improved stock."—[Bos ton Transcript. No.‘ 18.
