What might be done if men were wise What glorious deeds, my suffering brother, Would they unite, In love and right. And cease their scorn of one another! Oppression's heart might be imbued With kindling drops of loving-kindness, And knowledge pour, From shore to shore, Light in the eyes of mental blin Iness. All slavery, Warfare, Lies and Wrong, AH Vice and Crime might die to-gether; And wine and corn To each man born Be free as warmth in Summer weather. The meanest wretch that ever trod, The deepest sunk in guilt and sorrow, Might stand erect . In self respect And share the teeming world to-morrow, What might be done! Tiiit might be done, And more than this, my sutfuring brother More than the tongue E'er said or sung, If men were wise and loved each other. CELEBRATION OF THE SONS OF .p TEMPERANCE. Huntsville, Mo., Oct., 4ih. 1818. Gentlemen : The undersigned were ap pointed a committee, by the Huntsville Division of the Sons of Temperance, to have Iho enclosed addresses delivered in this place on Thursday, the 28th Sept., the first celebration of the order in this place, published and believing as we do, that your paper is ulways open to any and eve ry subject that may prove benficial to the cause of humanity, we have thought fit to impose upon your generous feeling?, so far as to ask permission for the patriotic and noble sentiments inculcated in those ad dresses, a place in your columns, and to re quest other journals, favorable to the ex tension and advancement of thtf glorious causo of Temperance, to copy the same. These speeches were delivered by Miss Mary M. Lewis, on behalf of the ladies of Huntsville and vicinity, in presenting o beautiful banner which was made for the order, and by John O. Oxley, on behalf of the Division. We would remark also, that on that occasion, a Dible was presented, and an excellent address read from Mrs, M. M. Watts, and responded to by Mr. E B. Cone, on behalf of the Division, which we will also send you in the course of a few days for publication. Our celebration was every thing to be desired. Besides the eloquent and mas terly efforts by those who delivered the Flag and Bible, and those who received them on behalf of the Division, the Bev. Mr. Simpson, from Glasgow, George. II. Btirckhartt and Dr. McLane, of Huntsville Division of the Sons of Temperance, de livered most able and interesting addresses. The cause is prospering finely Irere, and we hope will continue to prosper, until the Demon, Intemperance, is banished from tour land of liberty. Hespcctfully, Your ob't serv'u W. U. SAMUEL. W. M. DAM EBON. F. M. McLEAN. ADDRESS OF MISS LEWIS. , We deem words inadequate, to express h feelings of interest and estimation, with which the Sons of Temperance are regar- ded by the philanthropist, the patriot, and moralist; and we hopo soon to see thous ands of every class, unite heart and hand with this order, in endeavoring to eradicate the monster intemperance, from our free and happy country. It ii also incumben on each individual, who bean tho honora bio appellation of a Son of Temperance to " ERROIi CEASES TO use every means in his power, to obliterate this stain from our moral character as a nation: and whero is iho friend of humani ty that docs not exult, when ho reflects upon the powerful moral force now abroad, and in active operation, for the suppres sion of intemperance? In former times, the ignominy attendant on the vice, was thought a sufficient re straint. Our high-minded forefathers would have brcn indignant at the bare idea, that their discretion was not a sufficient curb for them. But the tyranny of habit, has thrown such a potent spell over their de scendants, that the most solemn obligation can scarcely sustain them, "Tell it not in Gath, publish it not in Ash- kelon;' that in almost every town and vil lage, throughout this favored land, on which a beneficicnt Creator has bestowed so ma ny blessings, temples are seen erected to Bacchus, on whose altars, thousands are self -immolated. The sight of the disconso late widow and orphan, of these deluded victims we should think, enough to stay the hand of the most slavish devotee. But alas I self-gratification, the tomb of every virtuous resolve, resumes its sway, and he, who was assigned by heaven, the support and protection of his family, frequently becomes the most brutal tyrant. We hope and believe, the humane Sons of Temper ance, will assist these unfortunate sufferers when necessary. The thousands, some of them would have squandered had they ne ver joined this Order, besides the personal benefit received, will no doubt stimulate them to the most magnanimous acts of charity and benevolence. The ladies, prompted both by interest and compassion, advocate this cause, and being fully aware of the influenco they possess over their chivalrous countrymen, beseech them; "to touch not, taste not, for there is poison in the cup." What can prevent the Sons of Tem perance from being immortalized on the pages of history and future generations, celebrating the anniversary of the day on which their beautiful flag was first unfurl ed to tlio breeze, an insignia of self-conquest which is the greatest that can be gained? This Division being emulous of distinc tion, and wishing to bo placed in the first ranks of the Order, considering it advanta geous, have erected their flag under the auspices of the ladies, and confered upon me the inestimable privilege of presenting it to you, as their representative; whom I congratulate, as one of the most zealous supporters of this glorious cause, and as success greatly depends on perseverance, we have no doubt of its ultimate success in this enlightened community. Reply of Mr. John C. Oxley, to the Ad dress of Miss Lewis, on receiving trie van' ner. Wiih feelings of the most sincere grati fication, I receive tin's token of the inter est thus manifested by yourself and the Ladies with you, for the success and pros perity of our Order. This indication of the good will and Philanthropic zeal with which you always engage in every enter prize, which has for its object the allevia tion of any of tho countless evils that af flict and oppress our race. I have heard with delight the elegant manner in which you have alluded to, and commended our principles and our objects. The able argu ments by which you have urged and en forced the necessity of resorting to gome thing more permanent than the flexible and ever vascillating will of single individuals to eradicate an evil that has embittered the disposition and the very existence of so many aimiable and virtuous men that has blighted to gloomy despair, the flattering prospects of so many an innocent family. We shall accept most cordially kind la dy, the assisiance you have offered on the part of the ladies, in curbing the growing, ho formidable power of Bacchus, who has oo long tyranized over the will and the disposition of individuals and of the com unity; who has too long ruled with a high hand in everv ace in every clime, 11 is high lime that his victims were set free Long! long! havo weeping widows and wailing orphans proclaimed against his sway 1 Long have heart-broken wives and disconsolate children implored a helping hand to save from ruin, him they loved- in whom all their hopes were centered; and long, too, has the miserable victim of in temperance himself, implored the aid ol wme benign and potent influence to sus ain his weak unstable will against the des potism of a habit that was urging him on m ruin and to wo that cast a gloom on the prospects of all that were dear. Thei prayers have been heard, their supplications have been answered, and now the Sons of Temperance "unfurl their bonner to tht breeze," and call on all the victims of lhi Sjreat scourge; on all those, who landing or BE DANGEROUS, WHEN REASON UliASUOW, MISSOURI, THURSDAY, OCTOIIER Id, lSlf. the brink of ruin, would retrace their steps while yet they can, to fly to tho arms of brothers who will willingly take them to their bosoms. We call oh each disconsolate wife, whose heart has been rent with an guish, whose fond hopes have been blasted, the flower of whose youth has been wast ed away in sorrow and misery, who has beheld with grief, the rapid decay of fur tune and the loss of friends: to urge the cause of all her Woes, to adopt jhe ample assistance of brothers who are anxious to save. We call on each fond mother who has with trepidation, watched the wayward habits of a beloved son, who has noticed a disposition to indulge in the convivial amusement of the bowl, to urge him by all the force of eloquence and maternal influ ence to forsake "tho pleasures that leave a sting behind," to forsake the Alcohol; for though its exhilerating effects so excite the mind, that thought chases thought in giddy, mad delight, with the facility that the light hing glides from cloud to cloud, yet how keen the rettlorsC; how dull, languid, how sleepy the stupor that is sure to follow. You have honored us with this beautiful present; in no common cause. It is one that occupied the genius and the manly feelings of a Howard end an Oldham, in long years of toil and hardships. It is one, the object of which is to elevate our fellow beings, and snatch them fiortl the iron gripe of a monstrous tyrant to rescue from the thraldom of ages from the tyranny of Bacchus, the mind of man, that nobler, more elevated principle by the exertion of which he has chained the buoyant vapour which in its agonized efforts for expan sion and for freedom, drives the agile bark swiftly onward through the parting wave by which he has usurped the prerogative of Jupiter drawn the lightning from heaven given it a tongue to speak and sent his ideas on its wings to distant regions in the twinkling of an eye: by which he has chas ed each world through the impurity of space and marked out its course in which it must pass for unnumbered ages to come Which ambitiously spurns the duller senses of life, the oft trodden paths of science, and soars into space unknown, there to search amid the endless perpetuity of cre ation, for something that no other has found, no other seen, and reveal more, still more, of the immense, the exhauslless mine of the wealth, the goodness the greatness of Him who rules on high. It is in a cause to secure from abuse and degradation, this constituent of man which alone raises him above the lower animals this elevated im mortal constituent which forms his privity with angels, and entitles him to a scat with them in celestial regions of bliss, that you have honored us with this elegant banner, and I hope that no Son of Temperance will hesitate in joining me in a promise to you, and all those ladies who take an inter est in our success, that the luster of a star shall not be dimmed, nor shall this silk, spotless as purity itseir, or wnicn it is an emblem, be soiled by spot or disgrace or blemish of dishonor, but it shall be nobly, triumphantly borne. ECONOMY. It is not econemy to keep a cold house Modern ways of economizing tuel are so many and cheap, and it costs so little more to make a house tight than it does to leave it open, that cold feet, colds, inflamation of the lungs and twenty other diseases to say nothing of the discomfort endured are paid for too high, when their price is a little neglect and want of enterprise in fit ting up an abode to prevent them. It is not econemy to half feed sheep, cat tie, swine, or horses in winter. Tho food they consume is the fire that warms them If they do not have plenty, its place must be supplied by the fat they have laid up on iheir bodies, in which case they will be come poor; and if they have no fat laid up, they must suffer terribly, if not perish. It is not econemy to keep animals shelter less. They consumo a sixth more feed freeze their feet, ears, and noses, sutler greatly, and are less likely to come out healthy in the spring. AJ1 kinds of tools are injured by expo sure to the weather. Wagons, wheel-bar rows, spades, hoes, ploughs, and every thing else of the kind, should be housed before winter seta in. Three Faults op Niuses. 1. To lisp in a baby's style, when tho same words in an endearing lone would please as well The reverse should be the practice; the voice clearly emphatic, and each syllabic distinctly articulated for imitation. 2. To tell of witches, ghosts, and goblins. 3. To direct a child to act a man; whereas it is not often becoming for a little boy to ape the man, but only to conform his demeonor to his age. Every age lms its peculiar daco-rousness. JS LEFT FREE TO COMBAT IT." HOWARD HIGH SCHOOL. Messrs. Editors: While spending a few lays in Fayette, on my way to my new home at this place, I look the opportunity of visiting once more the several depart ments of Howard High School. Having been long connected with this Institution, you may well suppose that I still feci a deep ntercsl in its future prosperity. As my connection with the school is now entirely dissolved, I can speak with propriety of its character and standing, and hope I may be permitted to do so, without incurring he imputation of speaking from interested motives. Mr. Lucky, as heretofore, superintends the Institution, and is principal of the fe male department. In the talent, ability, and qualification of Mr. Lucky as a teach er, I have, as I always have had, the most unlimited confidence. I say this under standing, having had as good an oppor- iunity of ascertaining his qualifications as any man living. Mr. Davis occupies my former situation as principal of the male department. Of Mr. Davis, as a teacher, any commenda tion from me, especially in that communi ty where he is so well known, both as a gentleman and scholar, Would be entirely useless. From what I observed during the short call I made in his department, I was confirmed in the opinion which I had be fore expressed privately, and which I will now express publicly, " that the male de partment would loose nothing, but rather profit by its exchange of teachers." The assistant teachers, under the super vision of tho principals, are all well quali fied for the departments they fill. The teacher of music and ornamental branches, whom they have lately procured for that department, judging from the tes timonials she brings with her from the East, is a lady equal in every respect to her pre decessor. To say this of her, you know, is commendation enough. The whole school and each several de partment, is under a strict and healthy dis cipline. This, I conceive to be one of the essentials to its prosperity, and hence, I hope the teachers will guard well this point, and as they value the Institution, they will continuo to preserve and maintain over it it, a strict, steady, impartial government. In conclusion I would state, that having for the last few months, made myself ac quainted with tho condition of the princi- al schools within the range of my travels, I know of none in the State, of higher claims to merit than Howard High School. Hitherto, the unfinished state of the building!), and the want of other facilities, have been disadvantages wiih which the Institution has had to struggle, but through the liberality and energetic action of the trustees, these disadvantages have been partially overcome. Be this spoken to their praise. Let them continue their gen erous efforts, until they shall have com pie ted the buildings and provided a suitable apparatus, library, cabinet, &c.; then they will have an Institution, which, by its su periority in every possible advantage, will command respect and patronage over eve ry other in the State.

Commercial Advertiser says; In the vicinity of London there ate numerous hotels or houses wiih ornamental grounds, called Tea Gardens. - 1 lieso are the resort of "the million," On a Sunday evening Ihey are frequently very crowded, but there is no vulgarity; all is appa- tently respectable, under the surveillance ol the police. 1 A whole lam.ly, including uia old granuiam-r, and grandmother and the infant grand child, walk in and after selecting a convenient arbor, summon the waiter and call for a pot of siout, and a pot of sixpenny and pipes for the men. These are brought wiih several lunioiers. the lady whose husband pays ihe score assumes tha duties of hostess. She pours into each tumbler a portion of the ale and stout which makes it "half and half." Now and then you will hear an older for a pint of stout "with the chill la ken off." The waiter brings the mug of portor and a small measure of gin. which, mixed to gather, "lakes the chill off." On thesa occasions I have seen no drunken ness; they converse harmlessly together, at first, about their family affair! and subsequently upon politics and make a tolerably free use of the lerms "my lord John" and "Bobby Peel." The baby crows or cries, just as it happens, and moth er aavs. "blessed little angel, does it want a lit tle drop,'1 and applies "the taps" of the glass to die child's lips. Now and then a rascal or two gets Into the caiden. One of the maids is called to another party, uelore she receives payment irom a pievi ... . . ! ous one and while in the act of drawing a coik from a very effervescent bottle of ginger beer, aha espies them endeavoring to effect their es cape, and cries out to a waiter, "run Thomas, there s two pints ol stout and a orandy ana wa ler, getting over the fence without settling." "Business before pleasure." aa the deacon said when he put off going tu church to Aug his wile. Jefferson. EYTRA PAY TO VOLUNTEERS. Mnj.

It is not always to be supposed, when you arc refused admittance to a lady's door, that she is pre-oecupicd with an uninterrupted Ute-a-ti:tc. It is enough that she has the migraine, or an " attack of neuralgia," (whatever that is,) or greatest and most im pregnable of reasons, that her toilette is not yet made. Tho prettiest women on the globe, (be lieve you this?) do not like to be taken by surprise! They forgive any thing sooner than an invasion of their presence during the mysteries of that complex exercise of arts and sciences by which their beauty is daily heightened. The most confidential male friend, the most precious lover, tho husband of years, aro alike secretly un welcome, till Madame has completed at least tho unconfesscd cmbracements of her loveliness. And considering what pains even pret ty women feel obliged to take judge what must bo done by those to whom nature has refused beauty, and who, to supply the de ficiency, have inevitable recourse to the inventions of modern chemistry their dressing-rooms being museums of curious aids and remedies, cosmetics, dyes, essen ces, powders, pomatums and plurhplitudini zcrs. One of the most charming women of Paris not long since happened to receive one of these untimely calls, when her con fidential maid, by some chance, was out upon an errand. Never suspecting at her door to bo a gentleman whose attentions had of late somewhat pleased her, she her self answered the bell. But Madame Was one of those many who never show them selves to the world till Heaven's original work upon them is entirely redone rC painted, re-perfumed, re-rounded and dla bastcred. " Ma--damc!" stamtriered tho unexpect ed comer, as the door opened and the ap parition of the face, au naturcl, was re vealed to his half-recognizing vision. " Madame is not in!" said she with the greatest coolness, suddenly shutting tiic door upon farther parley, and leaving tho intruder to retire upon his suspicions; The difference was so great between the lady done and undone, however, that he departed speculating on the gradual resem blance which even an old dressing maid may acquire to her young mistress, and convinced that Madame was not in a sim ple fact which the lady herself assured h'm of, that same evening, wiih infinite regret that it should have to happened 1 Hume Journal.

"Does your arm pain yod much sir?" asked a young lady of a gen tleman who had seated himself near her in a mixed assembly, and thrown bit arm across the back of her chair and tightly touched her neck. "No, mist, it does not: but why do you ask?" u I noticed it was considerably out of place, sir," replied ihe, that's all." Th i arm was removed.
