COURTESIES .OF LIFE.-
Man was originally designed by his
Creator, to live in a state of perfect peace
and amity with his fellows, but in conse
quence of the Introduction of moral evil
into this part of the Divine kingdom, the
vices of envy, jealousy and evil passions
Lave no con Acted with the original inten
tion, that like a garment repaired and re
repaired, the original can with difficulty
be detected. Yet what an easy matter it
would be for society, even upon the hy
pothesis that it cannot associate upon
terms of equality, to live iU least in harmo
ny ; this may be done by attending to the
simple couricsies of life. . By these we
do not wish 4o be understood to mean the
pomp of form dictated by wealth ; that
outward display of friendship, which
scarcely hides the secret contempt lurk
ing in the heart of the hypocritical preten
der; but an affable manner, without servil
ity on the one hand, or haughtiness on the'
other which will invariablyunless the re
cipient is degraded almost to the level of
the brute produce a sensation of pleasure
and cause him who is the object of it,
to have a feejing of kindness toward his
fellows which othenvise would not exist
In the circle of monarchy, or its con
comitants, a heriditary nobility, the cour
tesies of life are extended.principally to the
classes with which the associations are
made, but as to a nobleman extending
kind attention to a class considered infe
rior to bim, no matter how superior in
point of intelligence and moral worth
it may be, it would be considered a degra
dation. If any one having more than
usual of the feelings and principles of
common humanity existing within his
breast, should bend from his lordly digni
ty to acknowledge the rights of his fellow
men to be his equata, at least in some of
the attributes of humanity, his comiades
would scoff at him 5 and suspicion would
at once be excited that common blood
had become mingled in his veins, and
common clay had conglomeiated in his
noble porcelain. The consequence is that
a line of demarkation exists which a ways
produces hatred and an antagonistic war
fare, that docs not always end to the ben
efit of the higher parlies. The world is
too far advanced in knowledge and the
gcuciat uiuubiuu ui intelligence tor such
- things to last.
In a republican government, such as
oars, thero ought not to be any disti no
tion except such as is justly due to a high
order of talent and jin upright course of
moral ton duct ; and therefore the ameni
tics of life are by right an institution,
and all are perfectly justifiable in demand
, ing them. The aristocrats of wealth are
inclined to demand the Servility of the
poor without returning politeness for ser
vice. Such conduct should be frowned

picture, and notice the. opposite class,
who pass along with apparently ns little
idea of their real human dignity as though
they were not conscious of nny social po
sition in society. Their parents should
shudder to think of their manhood : how
great is Iheir responsibility 1
The mind and manners of the child arc
like plaster in the hand of the modeler,
make an impression however slight, and
it never can be entirely effaced. Every
word and action of the parent is imprint
ed indelibly upon the mind of the child,
and no after -Vicisitudes of life will ever
erase the effect. The child cannot be
taught all at once, it takes years to mould
the mind and manners of children, but
the happiness of parents in their own
home circle, and the future welfare of
iheir children, should cause no labor to
deter them until politeness becomes a ha
bit. Be polite and courteous to all and
everything else being equal success in
life is" certain.
C7 Among other provisions of the
much talked of Constitution of Kansas,
the Baltimore Sun learns one ;s, that the
Governor of the proposed State shall
have been a citizen of the U. S. 21 years,
and of the Statu 5 years. That's a Know
Nothing feature literally as well as polit
ically. Union.
The Constitution of the United States
declares that no person "shall bo eligi
ble to the office of President of the United
States, who is not a native born citizen."
That goes a 1'Ule further into Know Nj-
thingism than the reported provision of
the Kansas Constitution. What simple
tons the framers of that instrument must
have been ! ! !
On the 4th of March, 1801 Mr. Jefftr
son took the oath of office as President
of the United Slates. In May following
he writes to Nathaniel Macon, member
of Congress from North Carolina, as fol
lows : "A very oarly recommendation
has been given to the Post Master Gen
eral, to employ no foreigner or revolu
tionary lory, in any of his offices."
Thomas Jefferson must have had the
pleasure of a very intimate acquaintance
with " Sam," at that early day.
A Striking- Change.
The States the new Democratic organ
at Washington, shows upihe inconsisten
cy of the Union, tho President's special
organ, on the question of the Kansas
Constitution, in a most striking light.
Tho States says :
In July last the Union, which some
lime ago proclaimed itself the "central
oigan of the Democratic party," had the
lollowing on the vital topics perlaiuiii"
lo Kansas ;
"When there i.s 110 serious dispute
upon the constitution, either in the Con
vention or among the people, the power
of the delegates alone may put it in oper
ation. But such U not the case in
Kansas. The most violent struggle this
country ever saw, upon the most impor
tant issue which the .Constitution is to
determine, has been going on there for
several years between parlies so evenly
balanced that both claim the m;jorinf , and
so hostile to one another that numerous
lives hive been lost in the contest. Un
der these circumstances there can be no
such thing as asceitaining clearly and
without doubt the will of the people in
any way except by their own direct ex
pression at the polls. A Constitution
not tubjected to that test, no matter what
it contains, will never be acknowledged
by its opponents to be anything but a
traua. A plausible color might be giv
en to this assertion by the argument that
the members of ihe convention could have
no motive for refusing to submit their
worK lo theiv constitutents, except a con
sciousuess that the majority would con
demn it. W e confess that we should hjid
some difficulty in answering this. What
other motive could then have 1 We do
most devoutly believe that, unless the
Constitution of Kansas be submitted to a
direct vote of the people, the unhappy
controversy which has heretofore raged
in mat territory will be prolonged for an
indehnne time to come.
This language is very decided. Unfor
tunatcly however, within the week, we
find other doctrines of an exactly opposite
character in the Union. No matter what
the constitution contains, said the Union
in July, it must be submitted to the polls:
it will be a fraud otherwise. On last
Tuesday, Nov. 24th, the Union changes
its tune tnus :
" The idea as to .the failure of the
convention to submit the entire constitu
lion to the people for ratification or re
jection, on which somo of our Democrat
ic cotemporaries have cone off. will be
found, on examination, not to present the'
true issue now involved.
We think the reasons in the present
case fully justified the convention in a
partial but unimportant departure from
the principle.
In July the Union proclaimed that 'tin
less the constitution of Kansas be submit
ted to a direct vole of the people,' the
controversy would be indefinite. It thinks
otherwise now.
" To submit the whole constitution was
to endanger the fate of the whole, and to
piolongthe agitation. Union lilh Nov

The Harmonious (?) Democracy.
The Democratic papers of the , North
and South ire divided in sentiment con
cerning the Kansas Constitution. It is
denouncedby the Chicago Times (Doug
las's organ) the Detroit Free Press,(Gen.
Cass's organ,) Providence Post, Albany

are mum until they find out by smelling
or otherwise, what course- will bo taken
by the party, in power at Washington.
On the other hand the month-piece of
President Buchanan the Washington
Un'on and all other ''South side" Loco
foco papers, unqualifiedly commend the
obnoxious document as tho harbinger of
r
poliiical peace and harmony.
There is one tact which strikes us with
some force, viz : nearly all the northern
democratic papers which were the loud
est in their denunciations against the
Kansas bill and afterwards sacrificed
llieir principles for the sake of position
in the party, are now the most cautious
in the expression of an opinion upon the
question which is agitating the party.
Is this because they are given over lo
political and moral blindness, as the pen
alty of their treachery lo the cause of
humanity ? Or is it because they are
afraid they may unfortunately again be
found on the side of principle j and con
tending against party ? We have a few
cases of this kind not a hundred miles
from Stevbenville. The Presidents mes
sage will in all probability decide the
question for them.
Death of James G. Bimey.
The New Yoik Post of Wednesday
afternoon informs u that James G. But-
kitv ilrad fit lrrlfiuunnd iifl.ir Pprfli Am.
boy, N. J., on Tuesday evening and !
gives ihe following interesting sketch of;
his life :
lie was born in 1793, at Danville,
Kentucky, II is father a native of Ireland,
was a man whose enterprise had accu
mulated wealth, which, employed with
generosity, "conferred upon him popularity
and social position. His mother was a
beautiful and accomplished American
lady of the r.nme of Keed.
. At the age of nineteen, two yenis after
a dis'inguished graduation at Nassau
Hall, New Jersev, Mr. Birney became-a
student 111 the office of Mr. Dallas at Phil
adelphia.
Returning lo his native Slate in 1314,
he commenced ihe practice of law, and
at the age of twemy-two was chosen a
member of the Legislature. At this time
he contracted a marriage . with a lady of
great personal attractions anil distinguish
ed family. Three years after he had be
come a planter in Alabama, and the own
er of thirty-live slaves. Subsequently
resuming the practice of his profession at
Ilunisvillo, he gathered an extensive and
profitablcbusiness. Jusl before his return
to Kentucky he served with distinction
in the Legislature or Alabama.
Mr. Birney 's career attracts peculiar
inlorest from tho beginning of his connec
tion with the anti-slavery movement.
Early in life the wrongs iuIicted by the
whiles on the Indians touched his heart,
and called out his indignant eloquence of
both tongue and pen. Sympathy for one
ass of human beings naturally led to
ympalhy for another; and accordingly
lie was soon greatly interested in the wel
fare of tho negro. The plan of emanci
pation which at first seemed to him the
most feasible was that of the coloniza
lionists, and to advocate their views he
abandoned a lucrative and honosable pro-
ession.
In 1834 he caused a deed of emanci
pation for the six slaves he had brought
with him from Alabama, to be entered at
the office of the Couniy Court for the
county where he resided, and announced
his intention of starting an anti-slavery
newspaper in. the State of Kentucky.
When no printer could be persuaded to
undertake the mechanical part of the en
terprise there, he commenced the pub-
icution in Uliio,but rol without exciting
dangerous hostility. The recital of the
perils lo which he and his friends were
exposed is almost incredible, and shows
the change of sentiment which has since
taken place to make Ohio one of the Ireest
in sentiment of the Western States. .
Just before the death of his father, Mr.
Birney caused such a disposition lo be
made of the paternal estate, that all the
slaves, twenty-one 111 number, should fall
to him; and on the occurence of that
event, he set them at liberty, making
suitable provisions for their comfort.
About this time his wife died, the mother
of eleven children, of whom, we believe,
five are still living.
In 1840, Mr. Birney visited England.
and took a pronynent part in the anti.
slavery movements which then agitated
that country. In 1841 he married the
sister-in-law of Hon. Gerrit Smith, a lady
of the family of Fitzhugh, who survives
lo cherish his memory.
In 1844, Mr. Birney s eminent ability,
high character, and the distinction con
feired upon him by his anti-slavery course,
conspired to indicate him as the most
suitable candidate for tho "Liberty Party"
for President. Convinced that the cause
of freedom would gain nothing by the
election of Mr. Clay over Mr. Polk, he
resisted all overtures mide by the whig
parly to induce him to withdraw in favor
of Mr, Clay; and chiefly to Mr. BirneyVt
conscientions persistency, the friends of
that statesman are in the habit of ascri
bing his disastrous defeat.
Since then Mr. Birney's name has been
rarely before the public. During the last
twelve years he has suffered from several
attacks of paralysis, against which in the
opinion of his physicians, a brain less
powerful than his could not have sustain
ed itself so long. More recently his
symptoms have been aggravated by heart
disease, and other ailments which followed
in its train, After a slow, though not
painless decay of years, he expired peace
fully on the 24th of November, almost
to the last' rntfmeiit jn ihe posession of
his faculties. ' ' 1 1 ;; ' '- '! ;.'
' A few years. since he removed from
Michigan to New Jersey, in order that
he might end his days among the friends
of the reform to which he had devoted
his prime, and that bis youngest son might
anjoy the advantage of Mr. Weld s school
al Laglewood. Although his health did
not permit him to lake an active part in
politics after the struggle of 1844, ho was
no-uninteresteu spectator of events. JJu
rimr the : last , Presidential canvass he
warmly supported the Republican cause;
voting iur r remont, and preparing several
political nrticles of more than ephemeral
value, liy lus death the cause of univor
sal philanihtbny has lost a trustworthy
and self-sacrificing supporter, and a wide
circle of acquaintances a valued friend;
his name will occupy a conspicuous place

Fivk Accidents on the Pittsburgh,
Fort Wayne, and Chicago Railroad.
No fewer than five accidents, involving
injury to passengers and considerable des
truction of property, occurred on Friday
morning, within a few hours,' on the
Pennsylvania and Ohio Railroad, between
Pittsburgh and Crestline. The Express
train coming west, al a high rale of speed,
between Palestine and New Waterford, at
day break, encountered a broken rail.
The engine, tender, and baggage car,
jumped the hreak in safety, but the pass
enger cars, two In number, were thrown
from the pack and dragged with fearful
violence oyer the sleepeis, for some two
hundred yards, when the forward truck
of the hindmost car, became disconnected,
and the shock, as the body of the car
plowed itself among the sleepers, bore
scats, stove and every t other moveable
from their fastenings, which, together
with the passengers, some twenty in
number, suddenly awakened from their
slumbers, were piled in fearful confusion
together. In an instant lhe car was fitt
ed with smoke, and a moment after broke
out into a blaze, but before any serious
damage was done, the passengers from
the fust car, who were uninjured quickly
cleared the wreck and extinguished the
flames, when it was found that excepting
a few ugly burns.cuts, bruises and sprain?,
the occupants men, women, and chil
dren had miraculously escaped. ' 7 he
passengers being huddled together in the
baggage car, the train proceeded but a
few miles when it was stopped in a deep
cut, eight miles east of Alliance, by a
freight train also wrecked by a broken
rail, and presenting an- appearance more
chaotic than ehaos itself. Wo did not

the other accidents, we have no reliable
information, but believe no loss of life

A Well-bestowed Charity.
, A noble-hearted widow lady was walk
ing out one morning 111 the streets of
Cincinnati, when a poor lad with tattered
garments, solicited her chanty. His
voice was very sad, and his hunger-
pinched face and thin, half-frozen hands.
attracted irresistibly, the lady's attention.
"Where is. your mother, my poor child?
"feme is dead ma am, he replied.
"And your father?"
'Dead, loo," said the little fellow ; and
the blue lips twitched, as he shivered in
the keen wintry air.
Have you nobody 10 take care of you,
and give you food and clothes ?"
"No ma'am : nobody cares anything
about me now," sobbed the child ; the
voice of woman's sympathy unsealing
the fountains of his lonely, desolate heart.
" 1 hen come uith me, and 1 will give
you some food ; and she took the poor
boy by tho hand and led him into her
pleasant home, where his immediate
wants were quickly supplied. She then
gave him over to the care of a waiter, who
brought him back after an hour or two,
which had been spent in bathing, brush
ing out his tangled hair, and dressing him
in a plain, clean suit of child's clothes.
He looked quite another boy when lie
entered the cheerful sitting room again,
and the lady's heart warmed towards
him, as she drew him to her side.
Could she send him back into the cold
and evil world again ? Could she see the
door closed after that thin, frail little fig
ure, and feel no self reproach T No ! he
should not leave bet. She had an abun
dance of this world's store, and he should
be trained up under her roof, and who
could tell whether he might not prove a
uselul man in society and blessing to her
declining years.
The boy was sent to school, and soon
made rapid progress showing that he
possessed talents far above the ordinary
level. He entered college early ; and
while there, it was with the deepest joy
and thanksgiving to God, that his adopt
pd mother learned in a letter overflowing
with love for her, that he had become a
subject of renewing grace, and that he de
signed entering on a course of theological
studies as soon as his collegiate course
was completed
Her highest anticipations were now
fully realized, and with an overflowing
heart she blessed Ihe Lord for His in fin
ite mercy. She saw him graduate with
the second honor of the class, and felt
a mother's pride as she pressed his hand
afier the Commencement exercises were
over. His eye was bright with hope and
excitement as be bent it lovingly on her,
and gave her his arm 'as they left the
crowded hall; hers were dim with tears
of pleasure.
The same success which had attended
him through college was also achieved in
the seminary, and he entered on Ins la
bors as a patHor with a zeal and whole
heariedness which was richly crowned
by the Divine blessing.
He now ranks among the first Doctors
ot Divinity in our country, and has been
eminently useful in the vineyard of his
Master. Many who now rejoice in the
hope of salvation through Jesus, trace
their first conviction of sin to his earnest
