Then there were five dollars to pay for truck

eight dollars, leaving a balance in his favor
of one hundred and thirty-two dollars.
"Well, Samuel you've'made a pretty good
speculation," said Mr. Merrill, after the re
sult had been arrived at.
"And—a—how much am I to receive
asked the youth, tremulously.
"Why, licre it is, in black and white. I
offered you two hundred and twenty dollars
to do tho job, and you've done it. You've
made a hundred and thirty-two dollars—
about two dollars and five-sisths per day.
But you are not the only one who has done
this. Jones has had several jobs of the
kind, and Gurney has had three. The idea
,j is simply here In mechanics, as in the more
intellectual professions, the labor of a ca
pable mind is worth more than the mere la
bor of the physical organs, for one mind
may find work for a hundred hands, while
witlnut that mind they would be idle. Now
perhapsyou do not estimate your»wn abil
ities high enough. Th&e are ten men in my
employ who have had all the advantages that
you have had, but somehow they never had
a faculty of learning anything but the mere
mechanical part. There arc men here who
have been faithful and industrious, and yet
they could not have made the vault door.—
With some one else to draw the plans, and
give them the dimensions of each particular
part, they could have preformed the mere
work. So you see that in this job you have
only recoived a fair pny for vour services
for you have done the work of one good ar
tisan besides doing all the headwork. Hen
ry Willis might have done the same had he
remained here, for hopossessdd an excellent
mechanical judgement and taste."
"I cannot express all my gratitude, sir,"
uttered Samuel, with a brilliant eye.
"0 1" returned the employer with a smile,
"I am as much benefited as you are, and
whatever may be my desire for your good,
I at tho same time have a selfish inducement
for these things, for this very abilitv on the
part of my workmen is of incalculable ben

an opportunity to" make something by such
jobs, tncy are far more anxious to qualify

'So do I,' returned Samuel and here the
conversation ended.
Several times during the week, young
Willis approached his companion on the sub
ject, trying to get hiin to go and work for
tho new firm, but without effect.

versation, "You are getting a spice of ex-

change. You'll be like Tom Packard—one
of tho best fellows living, but see how he
manages. He loves change—change has
become necessary to him. Let him have
the best business in the world, nnd he'd
leave it for the first new thing that might
turn up. Lost year he was making money
in the express business, lis owned four
good horses clear, and was doing well. But
soon as llasom went up to him and opened
his plan for that new bowling-alley, Tom
went right into it. He wanted something
new and he had it after losing all ho had
of money, he'g gone to peddling. Next he'll
be driving coach, and he always contrives
to leave a good business as soon as some
thing else is offered."
However the week came round, and Hen
ry Willis left his old employer and went at
work for Crafts, Cumfrey ft Co,, and Mr.
Merrill put a new band in his place, advanc
ing one of the older apprentices, and taking
a new one. Samuel Peterson worked on
with renewed energy. He had determined
to merit the confidence of his employer, and
prove himself worthy of the advancement ho
aimed at. He often met llenry and he nev
er failed to congratulate himself on the ex
cellent place he hod obtained. Samuel was
glad to near it.
Some time in August—near the first of
the month—Mr. Merrill called Peterson into
his room.
"Samuel," said he, "I have received an
offer to put an iron vault, with double doors,
into the Merchants' Bank—the inner door
to be triple plated, with the middle plate of
cast steel. Ilere is a minute draft of what
they want, so far as form and style is con

iner'a Bank, spoke with me yesterdaj, and
wished me to let the same man, who built
the new vault for the Merchant's Bank build
one for him. Perhaps 1 might not deem it
iust to let you have another job so soon
but 1 shall give it to you and Gurney, and let
you share the profits."
From that time Samuel Peterson was one
of the best asen in the shop. Bat he had
only his dollar per day dunng the remain
der of the year.
One afternoon after winter had come, and
the wind blew cold and cheerless, 'ilenry
Willis entered Mr. Merrill's counting-room,
with a sad, downcast look, lie wished to
know if Mr. Merrill could give him employ
ment.
"Have you left Crafts A Co.?" asked the
old machinest.
"They have burst up, sir," the young man
replied. "Mr. Cumfrey gave us notice that
the company could do no more work."
"But you have not lost any of your wages,
Henrv.
"N'ot much, sir," the youth answeacd,
gaxing down* upon the tloor. "Cumfrey
settled up with us last night. 11c was ow
ing me twenty-two dollars. He offered me
twelve to settle, or 1 might wait und get my
day with the outside creditors »a 1 took
the twelve dollars and gave him a receipt."
"I am sorry you have lost your place, but
I have no room for another workman now.
My shop is full. Only let me advise you to
secure a good place as soon as possible and
when you once find it hang on to it as long
as vou can."
'the first of January came, and Henry had
obtained a situation in a blacksmith's shop,
at one dollar per day but the fond hopes
he had cherished could not be realized.—
Samuel Peterson on that day became a hap
py husband. He had explained the whole
plan to his employer, and on hearing it, Mr.
Merrill advised him to follow it out.
In the spring Henry Willis had an offerto
go into a new place, and he took up with it.
Near the same time Samuel Peterson had his
wages raised to one dollar and fifty cents
per day, and the extra pay was the more
grateful, because Mr. Merrill assureif him
that he was truly worth the price.
Now does not the reader call to mind just
such cases?. They are plenty in our coun
try, and many of the hnman wrecks which
we meet along the rough shore of business,
have become stranded upon this very shoal.

it. Beware of allowing the spirit of dis-

that are given with every cup of coffee—
three for the cup and two extra ones, which
are either put into the water or carried away
by Frenchmen, in tho pocket. On conclud
ing her gossip the fair female journal takes
these two lumps: they are her perquisities.
Jeanne (or Jenny) is tho name of this living
journal the students call her Jeannae aux
Canards.
Wo are sorry to say that Jenny Humbug
is the nearest translation we can give of the
name, though it must be admitted that, ns
Dolly Fudge says of French abuse, in Moore's
pjjem, it is not so bad in the original.—
However this may be, whenever Jennv Hum
bug enters a cafe there is a demand for her.
Everybody wants Jenny she is pulled from
table to table, there is a general uproar at
her extraordinary 'local items,' 'editorials,'
and 'telegraphs,' to say uothing of tho 'ad
vent.'
Jenny never leaves a cafe, after a short
visit, without bearing with her one of two
pounds of sugar, collected lump by lump.—
Jenny lives by sugar. The Cafe de 'lOden
buvs it all of her, and she is growing rich.
Of course there is a story connected with
her: Jenny Lind, with all her talent, had
to have a story they all have a rigmorole
yarn now-a-dnys, and of course Jenny Hum
bug, with such a name must have one. She
is a virtuous and spotless scion of some
thing or other, and is collecting a dower
wherewith to marry a lover to whom she
is passionately attached, a young Salesman
in Paris, and who is to wed her when she
shall have collected five thousand pounds—
not sterling—but of sugar.
It is fortunate for the editorial craft that
such newspapers are not started on a grand
scale in this country. We should soon have
to shut up shop if they were. The Press, as
the Bunkumville Flag*Stuff once remarked,
'is a mighty Indian—it corrects vice, vindi
cates the Constitution, and inserts adver
tisements'—bnt it could never resist such
opposition as pretty women turning them
selves into promenading newspapers, fling
ing forth paragraphs from rosy lips, dating
editorials from sparkling eyes, and doing up
'notices' in a style of amiable coquettish
preference. Long may it be before paper

EXTRACT* FROM A MKOBUB IT FBEST.
HIIEt C. KIMBALL,
Boteery, Sunday Morning, Aug. 30,1857.
REPORTED BY J. •. LONG.
You all acknowledge Br. Brighnm at the
President of the Church of Jesus Christ of
Latter Day Saints, then you acknowledge
him as our Leader, Prophet, Seer and Reve
Itttor, and then you acknowledge him in
every capacity that pertains to his calling
both in Church and State, do you not?—
[Voices: tee.']
Well, he is our Goveoor. What is a
Governor? One who presides, or governs.
Well, now, we have declared in a legislative
capacity, that we will not have poor, rot
ten-hearted curses come and rule over us,
such as same they have been accustomed to
send. We drafted a memorial and the
Council and the House of Representatives
signed it, and we sent to them the names of
men of oar choice, as many as from fire to
eight men for each office, men from our
midst, out of whom to appoint officers for
this Territory.
We sent that number for the President of
the United States to make a selection from,
and asked him to give us men of our own
choice, in accordance with the rights Con
stitutionally guaranteed to all American
citizens.
We just told them right up and down,
that if they sent any more such miserable
curses as some they had sent here, we would
send them home, and that is one reason why
an army, or rather a mob is on the way
here, as reported. You did not know the
reason before, did you?
Well, we did that in a Legislative capaci
ty we did it as members of the Legislature,
ns your representatives, and now you have
got to back us up. You sent us, just as we
sent Br. Bernhisel, to seek for our rights
and to stand in our defence at Washington.
Well, here is Br. Brigham, he is the man
of our own choice, he is onr Governor in the
capacity of a Territory and also as Saints
of the Most High.
Well, it is reported that they have anoth
er Governor on the way now, three Judges,
a District Attorney, a Marshall, a Postmas
ter and Secretary, and that they are com
ing here with twenty-five hundred men.
And since that time several years have
passed awav. Samuel Peterson is still with
Sir. Merrilf, receiving twenty-two cents per
hour for his usual labor, and having many
jobs on whiA he often cleared his five dollars
per day. He owns a snug little cottage, and that 1 am cross, but 1 am laughing at their
he calculates to lay up three huudred dollars
a year. He has a wife who helps him well
in all his laudable undertakings.
In the meantime, Henry Willis has been
tossing about the country—now with work,
and now without—always continuing to
earn money enough to pay his rent and keep
his family in food and clothing. And this
propensity for change has become a habit
which must cling toliim through life. Af
ter he had worked a month in one place, he
becomes uneasy nnd restless, and the first
man who comes along and proposes some
thing new is sure to be listened to.
The United States design to force those
oflEc TS upon us by the point of the bayonet.
Is not that a funny thing? You may think
calamity, and 1 will mock when their fear
cometh?
Now, gentlemen nnd ladies, you look at
these things, and then right in this book, the
Bible, it says, our nobles shall be of our
selves that is, our Lords, our Judges, our
Governors, our Marshalls, and our every
thing shall be of ourselves. Won't you
read the 30th chap, of Jeremiah?
If this people should consent to dispos
sess Br. Brignam Young as our Governor,
they are just as sore to go to hell as they
live, and I know it, for God would forsake
them nnd leave them to themselves, and
they would be in worse bondage than the
children of Israel ever were.
Supposing this thing all blows over and
they don't come up here, but they begin to
flatter us and be friendly, what will be the
result? They may flatter as long as the
earth stands, but 1 will never be subject to
one of their damned pusillanimous curses
contentment to find its way into your bo
soms. It is a very homely saying, but yet They may courtand flatter as much as they
one of useful application, and may be heed- please, but I never will be subject to them
ed with profit by those who are commencing again, no never. Do you hear it? [Voices:
business life: "Let irctl enough alone" 'Yes.'] Do you think we will submit to
them? No, never. They have cut the
thread themselves.
r,,. ., i. I You are the people who have the privil-
t0 #ckn0 Br Br! h(lni oar
of old-giving birth to some extraordinary Governor, and continue him in office, and
you also have the privilege, through your
ajjcncy, to reject him, if you please, but it
will be to your condemnation if you do, be
cause he has got the keys of the kingdom,
and the very moment you reject him, you
cut yourselves off from the right of the priest
hood.
I will now bring up a comparison. I live
in the city of Great Salt Lake. 1 am a
e
reject their heirship to the head or limb to
which they are lawfully connected. Is not
that so?
Suppose you acknowledge tho man re
ported to be coming, what do you do? You
reject your head, and if so, where is the
body and what will become of it?
1 will compare it to my body. Suppos
ing the head is cast away, the body will die,
won't it? Yes, and you will just as quick
as that, if you reject Br. Brigham your
head.
We are the people of Deseret she shall
be
Dcscret, she shall be more Utah we will
have our own name. Do you hear it?
Brethren and sisters, these ideas
are com
forting to all of you, they are most glori
ously comforting to me. 1 tell you tbe
feelings within me are glorious.
We tire the people of Deseret and it is for
us to say whether we will have Br. Brigham
for our Governor, or those poor, miserable
devils they are reported to be trying to bring
here. You must know they are miserable
devils to have to come here under arms, but
they shall not rule over us nor come into
this Territory.
What do you say about it? Arc you will
ing as a people, that they should come in
here? You that say they shall not, raise
your right hands. (AH hands raised.)
Mr. Gentile, won't you tell of this to
your co-workers for the devils kingdom?
The reason that I talk as I do, is because
I don't hold any office in the United States
but this people, some time ago, appointed
me Chief Justice of the State of Deseret,
and Br. John Taylor and Bishop N. K.
Whitney my associates. You also appoint
ed me Lieutenant Governor I always told
you I was going to be Lieutenant Governor.
This is a stump speech!
We are going to have our own Governor
henceforth. Brigham Young was then our
Governor, IleberC. Kimball was Chief Jus
tice ahd Lieutenant Governor. 1 was a big
man then 1 felt as big as Br. Morley does
in the Legislature. The fact is, he does not
understand their gabble, if he does, he un
derstands more than 1 do.
It is for us to say, according to our rights
under the Constitution, whether we will have
those cursed gentiles to rule over us or not.
I want you to publish this, Mr. Editor.
I am giving yon a little of my feelings, for
I want you to ltnow that you are under no
more obligation to receive those men, than
Br. Brigham's family is to receive another
man, and to reject him as their husband,
their father, their friend and benefactor.
I know that what I have said has informed
many of your minds, and I choose to present
my ideas hy comparison.
I have a right to say the Gentiles shall
never rule over me, although this people
mav admit of their coming here. 1 nave a
right to say also, that we shall never be ruled
over by them from this day forth, while
grass grows or water rans never, no never.
[Voices, 'Amen.']
Well, we have got to sustain these Amens
and we have got to sustain vows. You, la
dies, too, will ccrtainlv have to do your port

anything that comes alonjr If it is good,
we are ready for that, and if it is evil, we
are ready to stand against it.
Go to work and lay up your grain and do
not lav it oat for ine clothes nor any other
kind fine thing, bat make homespuwtrow
ser* and petticoats.
What would please me more than for my
family, instead of wanting me to go to the
store for petticoats and short gowns, to see
them go to work and make some good home
spun? What would be prettier than some
of the English striped linsey and a bonnet
made of our own straw? Those arc the wo
men I would choose for wives.
If you wnnt virtue, go into thp farming
country, for there is the homespun. Farm
ing districts contain the essence and the vir
tue of old England.
1 do not know as you know what home
spun is, but it is that which is spun at home,
and it is for your welfare, both men, women
and children "to make your own clothing.—
It is also for your salvation to equip your
selves uccordiDg to law.
Now 1 will tell you, I have about a hun
dred shots on hand all the time three or
four fifteen shooters and three or -four re*
volvers right in the room where 1 sleep, and
the devil docs not like to sleep there, for he
is afraid they will go off half cocked.
If you will lay abowie knife or loaded re
volver under your pillow every night, you
will not have many unpleasant dreams, nor
be troubled with tne nightmare, for there is
nothing that the devil is so much afraid of
as a weapon of death.
You may take this as tome of Heber's
wild visions, if you please. 1 have acknowl
edged myself as one of the people, and now
I say we will take our own name, and
not be false named any more. We arc the
kingdom of God, we are
STATE
OF DES-
EKET, and we will have you, Br. Brigham,
as our Governor just so long as you live.—
We will not have any other Governor.
1 mean just what I say, and this people
say they will not have any other Governor,
and especially any one that has to come here
under arms, for we consider that any man
is n poor damned curse that has to come
here under arines to rule over us. These
are my feelings and if anybody votes against
it, they are not of us, and they are apostates
and will go overboard. There is not a
child but what goes with us in these things.
When we reject Br. lirigham Young^ce
reject the head, but we will not do it, *or
the body shall dwell together, and we arc
members of that body, and he shall be our
Governor just as long as God Almighty will
have him to be. Those who are in favor of
it, raise your right hands.
[The vote was unanimous.]
Vou ma* try it just as long as you like
and it will be so every time except those
four or five and thev will never vote. Can
1 point them out? "tes I can. I have had
my eye on them ever since they came into
the congregation.
Let us do our,dutv, be humble, prayerful,
honest, virtuous and punctual in all our en
gagements let us have no lying, no decep
tion, but let us be honest, and let the labor
ing men that labor on the public works bo
honest, and let them bo punctual to their
work.
Why do I speak to the public hands? Be
cause they are on the most important work
there is in the world. And now would a
man feel to go into that house, (pointing to
the endowment house) that had stolen the
nails out of the carpenter's shop, or out of
the machine shop or the boards out of the
lumber yard?
Let us be faithful and the Lord will be on
our side, and I doubt whether we shall bo
under the necessity of shedding much blood
ourselves, but let us be ready, guns cocked,
none of your half cocked.
If we have to go into the mountains we
shall cut off the trees and the roots will be
there still: but we shall not go into the moun
tains.
We were told that we were going into the

JOKES FOR HARD TIMES.
"These times" lead every body to preach
economy one writer says funerals might be
conducted much cheaper than they are.—
Another calculates that if all persons in the
United States wonld wear their clothes an
extra six months for one year, $250,000,000
might be saved—or if each family wonld
omit the use of meat one day in every week
for a year, $125,1.100,000 more might be
saved—but thc«e calculations must stop, or
we shall be too rich—in rags, empty stom
achs and shabby hearses.
At the Girarik House, Philadelphia, on
Friday last, the rush for accomodations was
so great, that Chadwick—well known for
the facility and urbanity of which he is pos
sessed "in crowding the mourners" in easo
of necessity—piled them in many instances,
as manv as eight in a room. At midnight,
when the coast was clear, one of the servants
announced to Chadwick that a gentleman in
105(there being eight in that room)wished
to be called at six o'clock.
Chadwick—Which gent docs?
Servant—Be Jubcrs, the one next to the

The following passage on Shakespeare is
from a lecture on the philosophy of life by
Wm. Winter, Esq., of Cambridge:
"For the grandest human intellects there
is no exemption from the common doom. 1
have sometimes thought how sad, vet how
sublime, must have been the emotions of that
man, whose privilege it was to stand by the
coffin of Shakespeare, and gaze on that no
ble face, when death had called out all the
strange beauty, which never lives till then
It was worth a lifetime to have laid your
hand on that dead brow, and started at the
cold chill, and so pausing to have called up
in memory all tho magnificent creations of
his genius, and worshipped him there in tbe
silence and the gloom.
"Hut he i* dead and gono,
At his bend a graft* crctn toff,
At liis heels a itouc."
So they all go. Man dies but nature is
eternal. 'The seasons keep their appt/inted
time. Day returns with his golden splendor,
and night with its eloquent mystery. The
same stars which lit the ghastly bjittlc field
of Troy—rough with the dead bodies of an
cient heroes which shone on the marble
streets of imperial Home, aud on the sad eyes
of Virgil, sleepless in the glow of inspiration
—the watch-fire
of the angels,which throtigfa
centuries of devastation and change, hare
still burned on unceasingly—speak to us as
they did to Dante. Shakespeare and Milton,
of the glory, of tne beauty, and the omnip
otence of God."
