HrxAN Rights. We have . boen favored
wall copy of an otalien unit wan receuilv
delivered before the Literary Society of the
University ot .Vermont, by J. 1. Ukadley.
Ita title is the 'One Prcgiessive Principle,'
ana It II one oi.l?omosl ihriililigiy' iloqueut
production! that ever came under our no
lite. We annex a stirring passage:
. "I have tbua endeavored to make history
illustrate my r reposition, by watching the ap
pearance of this principle at different periods,
and studying its characters, and gauging its
strength. ' But, the present, no less than the
past, throw in its testimony; and even now
this strange, unconquerable principle is mov
ing on, dragging the life and energy of the
world after it. Oh, it is fiarful to behold its
strength and the upheaving it has occasion
ed! . Ever since the time of Christ, man has
striven more or less resolutely to get an ac
knowledgment of his rights, eithwr in reli
gious or political matters, or in both. Des
pots have made use of old reverence super
stitious fears, trickery, falsehood, the dun
geon, the bayonet and the scaffold, to silonce
his claims ai d overcome his arguments.)
Force hns done much, fur though
"Truth rraihtS to earth will rie galp,
it often requires 'the eternal yea.-;, 0f God,'
ana men nave succeeded in Varying it fath
oms deep. But the one which I have been
speaking, has b.sd ,wo mild resurrections-
one in fcrighnd, when Cromwell nhouted
over its grave,' and one In France when the
infuriated populace call it in shrieks forth
from its burial of ages. Oh! how man has
struggled to he free free to cat the brend
his own hands has sown, free to breathe his
tho'is ever the lyre, or utter them through
the pages of his country's literature,' free to
lay the taxes he himself pay, free to worship
God according to the dictates of his own con
science. See England convulsed, her House
ef Commons in tears, and the torch of civil
war blazing over the land, and all for d prin
ciple the principle of personal freedom.
Behold this country pouring out its blood
like water, see it clothed in mourning her
children marching barefoot over the frozen
ground, leaving their bloody testimonials on,
every foot of it they i traversed nay, march
ing by hundred naked into battle, and all for
this 0MaWctp7. --
.-,. See France rent asunder,' her streets
flowing with blood, and the loud beat of the
alarm drum, aud the steady peal of tha toc
sin, and the heavy pools of the tumbrels, go
ing, to and from the scaffold the only mu
sic of Paris for year . and millions' of men
sacrificed; and yet this' principle;' in' some
form or other, lying at the bottom of it all.
Deosivsd-as the fierce actors of this tragedy
may have, been, and diverted though the
thought, fur a while, might have been to per

nitre than the unrolling of banners and the
pomp and majesty of arms.' Great deeds
are wrought and glory is the guilding star to
thousands, yet that loag and fearful struggle,
notwithstanding the various pretences set
forth, was, with all its bloody aecompaui
monts, and waste of treasure, and less of life
and suffering, simply an effort to stop the
progress of this one principle. Here all the
diplomacy and hypocrisy of Europe are re
duced to single element the world in
arms against human rights. France "threw
dew the head of a king as the gage of bat-
lie,' and the conflict was set, Cromwell's
army shouting through the fight, and French
patriots storming over entrenchments with
Republican songs in their mouths, may have
been fanatical or deluded men, and cheated
at last by ambitious chieftains, but the thing

per "is a well-sprintf of pleasure, a messencor
of peace and love, a resting place of inno
cence on earth, a link between angels and
men.''. .J
Mr. Tupper, we opine, is a "bachelor gen
tleman," and therefore is entitled to romance
upon ball's as much as he chooses. But Mr.
Martin Tupper, Esq., can't hope to come it
over us about the pleasure of "a baby in a
house." We've seen all along lhar, as Capt.
Simon Sougs would say. 'Taint no great
enjoyment, according to our ideas, to have a
cup of hot tea pulled over into your lap, at
least once a day. We could never appreci
ate the fun of having a baby's half digested
breakfast or milk csst into your bosom. Mr.
Tupper's idea of a "well-spring of pleasure"
may be very satisfactory te his own imagine-
lien. We b ave drunk at that "well-spring"
we have! Being waked up a half a dozen
limes through the night by the squealing ef
the "angel," and when yen attempt to cany
into execution the eft-repeated threat to
"slap the brat," to find Mrs. Caudle's finger
nails resenting the attempt, by a counter at
tack upon your faee, ain't the most agreeable
thing in the world. Getting up of a cold
night for "the drops," and upsetting the

of pap, ia the exploration for the box of
matches doeu'ut give one the clearest Idea of
a "connecting link between angels and men.'.'

from tnat period he cult vated the science of

garden seeds was enabled to supply farmers

by which our markets are now so abundant

sale of seeds in the establishment in Fulton
street amounted to $25,000 for the last year.

This tYobld. The man who lives in this
wo.ld and does aot try to u fur in it, in al
most every respect, must be an awful blue
dish of skimmed milk.
Tot there is one point of view in which
this world is a most excellent one. It is in
fast so coed that we really do not feel wor
thy to live in it. It is a glorious world to
act your vart veil iu. There could not be
a better. We mean by acting youi part well
only dting ihs bsstyau can. We are sorry
we ever despaired ef doing that or by any
ther feeling failed to do it.
This world, as a place to train spirits in, is
no failure. It goes perfectly well. . It goes
infinitely well. Whosoever dees not reap
the benefit of its well going, will have to
blame himself. Whether be be in tbe palace
or in tbe diteh, il is all one. The law every
where is. samp or drawn. The man wbo
surrounded with peteiiy and poison, keeps
an honest, upright, hopeful, helpful heart,
has attained glory. He wbo, clothed with
silk, fur and bank checks, has sold himself to
profligacy, falsehood and selfishness, is rnis
arable.
Don't wail, friends, till this world besemes
better before yeu try lo be so. J he most
glorious chance is now. God Almighty, had
as tbe world ls.kae net another in Ins bound
less deraiaieNs where you would be happier
than vou can be here, this minute. He
would have to destroy you and saake you
over to make veil any happier than you can
make yourself now. Pshaw! if he should,
it wouldn't be you but another man in your
dace. Do veu want to be annihilated! If
not, go to aork is your place and be happy.
No matter if your business is dressing sores
in the hospital; digging graver, or spiuning
cotton. If it is only an honect business, do
Do it well. Cherish the life that is in
you for the sake of doing It. Happiness is
a fountain that is inside of you. .
You may look outside eternally and you will
net find it. Forgive cur being so prosy.
