Tell me, ye gentle winds, that round my pathway play, Is there no place on earth where printers get their pay ? The whispering breeze went by, with accent filled with wo, A roice, borat on the sorrowing air, in sadness ans'd, No! Tell me, ye flowing streams, that smoothly glide along, Is there one cherished place where printers meet no wrong ? The gentle brook replied in murmurs soft and low, •And winding on its verdant way, it meekly answered No! Tell me, ye-murky clouds, now rising In the West, Is there upon the globe one spot by printers blest ? The Hashing aloud outspoke with an indignant glow— A voice that tilled the earth with awe, in thunders an swered, No! Tell rac, hard hearted man, withholding day by day, Is there no honor in thy breast, the printer's bill to pay ? Unanswered turns be round—how plain the actions show ; An uttered oath-capped sound is heard—his actions answer, No! Tell me, ye gentle nymph, who bless our life-hours thro’ Is there one sacred shrine where printers gain their due? A mantling blush diffused did tenfold grace impart— A soft, responsive sigh replied, 'tis found in woman's heart. Tell me, angelic host, thon messengers of love, Shall suffering printers here below have no redress above ? The angel-bands replied, to us is knowledge given— Delinquents on the printer’s book can never enter Heaven 1 Origin of Normonlim. The origin of Mormonism may be known already to many of our readers from the pub lished accounts in newspapers, but the follow ing from the speech of Hon. John Thompson, of New York, delivered in the U. S. House of Representatives, gives a more succinct and graphic description than we have yet seen : 44 Mormonism as a religious system had its origin in a romance, written about the year 1810, by Solomon Spalding, a native of Con necticut, who had been educated for the min istry, but followed a mercantile employment, removed to Cherry Valley, New York, where ho amused his leisure hours by weaving into a book entitled by him the 44 MSS. Found,” the notion entertained or suggested by some writ ers that the American Indians are the descend ants of the lost ten tribes of Israel. Hence, he starts them from Palestine, invents for them various fortunes by flood and field, wars, quar rels, turmoils, strifes, separations, until they people this continent, and leave behind them the vestiges of mounds, tumuli, fortifications, sculpture, and cities dilapidated, which are discovered in Northern and Central America. It is written somewhat in Scripture style, and uses the machinery of the Jewish economy throughout. He reft his manuscript to vari ous persons who yet remember it, but was not successful in procuring its publication. Some where about the year 1823, this manuscript fell into the hands of Jo Smith, a native of Windsor county, Vermont. Smith was about twenty years of age, and already exhibited that singular compound of genius and folly, of cunning and absurdity, of indolence and ener gy, of craft and earnestness, which distin guished him to the end of his career. “Under the new-light preachers of that day Smith became imbued with all the wild and extravagant notions of seeing sights; hearing voices; receiving revelations, and meeting and fighting the devil in bodily form; which indi cate a diseased imagination, and want of all solid instruction and fixed principles on religi ous subjects. Enthusiasm ran mad through the whole region where he dwelt, and Smith was one of its most brilliant exemplifications; ultimately having a revelation that all existing systems were wrong, and that he should be made the prophet of a new faith. For more than five years ho vibrated between his cau tion and enthusiasm; giving out, occasionally, dark hints about certain mysterious plates to be dug up by him, containing a new revelation. Part of his time was spent in lying, swindling and debauchery, and the remainder in visions and repentance ; the vulgar habits of the brute (Contending with the higher functions of the prophet. At length he pretended to dig out the plates from the side of a hill, in Palmyra, Wayne county, New York; placed himself be hind a curtain, permitting no one to enter, from which sanctum he translated from the plates the book of Mormon to an amanuensis, reading it all from Spalding’s manuscript in his posses-, illaripostt Democrat. HORNITOS, MARIPOSA COUNTY, CALIFORNIA, THURSDAY MORNING, APRIL 1, 1858. sion, one hundred and eighteen pages of it! having been stolen by Martin Harris. With i this new Koran our modern Mohammed started upon his career. “On the sth of May, 1829, John the Baptist came back to earth to baptize Smith; and on the flth of April, 1880, the first church of Latter-Day Saints was organized at Manches ter, New York, consisting of four Smiths and two converts out of the family—Pratt, Kigdon, Kimball and Young joining afterwards. This Bible, unlike that of the Christian or Mussel man, purports to be chiefly historical, and does not enunciate or enforce a system of moral and religious truth in a philosophic or didactic form; all its incidental lessons upon life or manners being derived from current doctrines of this day. It is consequently incapable of comparison with any other extant form of re ligious faith. One might as well compare the Christian religion with Pension's Telcmachus, or one of James' novels. “ The materials of the Mormon book, though mostly derived from the same source, are so crazily jumbled together, so inartiticially con structed, that if a whirlwind had scattered the leaves of the sacred record, and combined them again with the feats of Baron Munchau sen by machinery, it could not have surpassed this production of inanity and folly.” The Light of the Moon.—As the moon’s axis is nearly perpendicular to the plane of the ecliptic, she can scarcely have any change of seasons. But, what is still more remarka ble, one half of the moon has no darkness at all, while the other half has two weeks of light and tw’O of darkness alternately; the inhabit ants, if any, of the first half bask constantly in earthshine, without seeing the sun, whilst those of the second never see the earth at all. For the earth reflects the light of the sun to themoon in the same manner as the moon docs to the earth; therefore at the time of conjunction, or new moon, her further side must be enlightened by the sun, and her nearer half by the earth; and at the opposition or full moon, one half of her will be enlightened by the sun, but the other half will be in total darkness. To the lunaries the earth seems the largest orb in the universe; for it appears to them more than three times the size of the sun, and thirteen times greater than the moon does to us—exhibiting similar phases to her self, but in a reverse order; for when the moon is full, the earth is invisible to them, and when the moon is new, they will see the earth full. The face of the moon appears to us per manent, but to them the earth presents very different appearances, the Pacific and Atlantic oceans, in the course of each twenty four hours, successively rivet their attention. The moon being the fiftieth part of the bulk of our globe, and within 2-18,000 miles of us, may be brought by a proper telescope which magni fies 1000 times, to appear as she would to the naked eye were she only 260 utiles off. Tub Holy Gate. —There is one gate to the Kremlin, in Moscow, called the Spass Verola, or the Gate of the Redeemer. On going through this gate, if the thermometer were thirty degrees below zero, the Emperor would he compelled to take off his hat, and keep it off all the way. No one is allowed to go through covered, and dogs are not permitted to pass at all. It is sacred on account of a picture of the Saviour which hangs above it, and which is said to have worked miracles to save the gate. Many times, when the Tartars attacked the city, miraculous clouds obscured the entrance from them, while the believers were safe within. In 1812, the French tried to mount up to the picture to obtain the gold from it, but the ladder broke in the middle. Enraged at the failure, they attempted to hat ter it down with a cannon; hut the cannon would nut go off; so they built a fire over the vent, but lo! the cannon burst into ten pieces, and the French were killed right and left. If one attempts to pass this gate covered, he hears the sentry cry, 44 The hall the hat, father 1” and should he persist, the interior of a Russian guard-house would be the first interior his eyes would rest upon. Ladies 44 Raising the Wind.” — A novel parade recently came oil' at Pittson, Pennsyl vania, on the occasion of the 44 donation visit” for the benefit of the Rev. Mr. Stocking. Two barrels of flour, a bushel of potatoes, and half a one of onions, were presented to the pastor by some of the citizens, provided the ladies would haul the same from the Pennsylvania Coal Company’s office to the residence of the pastor, a distance of about a quarter of a mile. The challenge was accepted by the ladies, who assembled on the following morning lo the number of about one hundred, and, headed by the Pittson Rruss Hand, marched off in fine order with the provisions. The turn out col lected together quite a concourse of citizens, who followed the procession to the place of their destination, which, when they reached, the ladies turned on them and collected, by way of toll, some ten or fifteen dollars. A. C. Rhind, of the Navy, has posted Com mander Boutwell as a liar and a coward, for having insulted and then refused to fight him. Col. Wade Hampton, of South Carolina, the largest slave-holder in the South, died at Nat chez, Miss., on the 10th February. "THE UNION AND ITS GOVERNMENT." Advh-e to Vouug Men. A great many young men, who start out in ' life with fair prospects, run well for a season, then they waver, and finally are irretrievably engulphed in ruin. This comes, in the , ity of instances, not from a want of the faculty of doing right, but from the want of some standard rules by which to regulate their con* duct The following sound advice to young men is worthy of all attention: Keep good company or none. Never be idle. If your hands can’t be use fully employed, attend to the cultivation of your mind. Always speak the truth. Make very few promises. Live up to your engagements. When you speak to a person, look him 1 straight in the face. Good company and good conversation arc the very sinews of virtue. I Good character is above all things else. | Your character cannot be essentially injured, except by your own acts. If any one speaks evil of you, let your life be so that no one will believe him. Drink no kind of intoxicating liquors. Ever live (misfortune excepted) within your income. When you retire to bod, think over what you have been doing during the day. Make no haste to be rich if you would pros per. Small and steady gains give competency, with tranquility of mind. Never play at any game of chance. | Avoid temptation, as though you fear you may not withstand it. Earn money before you spend it I Never run into debt unless you see a way to get out of it i Never borrow if you can possibly avoid it [ Do not marry until you are able to support a wife. Never speak evil of any one. He just before you are generous. Keep yourself innocent, if you would be happy. Save when you are young that you may spend when you arc old. Be sure and read over the above maxima at least once a week. About Snebzino.— St. Aubin tell* us that the ancients wore wont to go to bed again if they sneezed while they put on their shoes. Aristotle has a problem, “ Why sneezing from noon to midnight was good, but from night to noon unlucky V” Eustatius on Humor says, that sneezing to the left was unlucky, but pros perous to the right; Hippocrates, that sneez ing cures the hick up, and is profitable to vari ous diseases. Pliny, Apuleius, Petrionius, and a dozen others, have all something to say about it; and Buxtorf tells us that “ sneezing was a mortal sign, even from the first man, until it was taken off by the special supplication of Jacob. From whence, as a thankful acknowledgment, this salutation first began, and was after con tinued by the expression of tebinckaum or vita bona , by slanders by, on all occasions of sneezing.” When his majesty the king of Minomotapa sneezes, those who are near him salute him in so loud a tone that the persons in the ante chamber hearing it, join in the acclamation. In the adjoining apartments they do the same, till the noise reaches the street, and becomes propagated through the city ; so that at each royal sneeze a most horrid cry results from the salutations of his many thousand vassals. A somewhat different custom prevails in Senarr, where, when his majesty sneezes, his courtiers immediately turn their backs on him (for that lime only) and give themselves a loud flap on their right thigh. The Married Man.— How is it, says Black wood, that the girls can always tell a married man from a single one ? The fact is indisput able. The philosophy of it is beyond our ken. The simple fact of matrimony or bachelorship is written so legibly in a man's appearance that no ingenuity can conceal it. Everywhere there is some inexplicable instinct that tells us wheth er an individual (whose name, fortune, and circumstances are totally unknown) be, or bo not a married man. Whether it is a certain subdued look, such as that which characterises the lions in a menagerie, and distinguishes them from the lords of the desert, we cannot tell; but that the truth is so we positively affirm.” You're wrong, Blackwood, and don’t know any such thing. We know a man who came suddenly into a community whore the young ladies all tried to look “ killin’” at him, think ing him unmarried, and never found out their mistake till he brought his wife among them. There was a decided “ coldness ” thereafter, though. Monstrous. — The Albany Times states that Mrs. Hayse, of Saratoga county, New York, died recently, after having lived nineteen months without food or drink. She remained insensible for fifteen months of the period, and up to a few days of her death when she spoke occasionally. After her death a snake five feet long and half an inch thick was taken from the stomach, it was alive when removed, but died soon after. Col. Johnson, of the Utah expedition, has been made a Brigadier General. STOCKTON ADVERTISEMENTS, W. W. WKItMTKK. .1. M. WAITS. WEBSTER & WAITE, Importers ami Dealera in HARDWARE. CROCKERY.
