THE PHISITKR’S CONSOLATION.
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
A roice, borat on the sorrowing air, in sadness ans'd,
Tell me, ye flowing streams, that smoothly glide along,
Is there one cherished place where printers meet no
The gentle brook replied in murmurs soft and low,
•And winding on its verdant way, it meekly answered
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
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
An uttered oath-capped sound is heard—his actions
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
Tell me, angelic host, thon messengers of love,
Shall suffering printers here below have no redress
The angel-bands replied, to us is knowledge given—

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-,

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 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

of doing right, but from the want of some
standard rules by which to regulate their con*

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
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
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
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,
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.
