INTEIXIG^NrrFVR7
A friend sends us the following extract from
he address of the Rev. Samuel J. Wilson, late
y delivered before the Literary Societies of
Washington College, (Pa.) Mr. Wilson is well
known to many of the citizens of Wheeling
but aside from this, the rare beauty and finished
literary elegance of the extract we present, will
well pay for the space which we devote to it
The result of decision of character was next
treated in a masterly manner, showing that it
tion nnh" h?E UeS?. of P?rPOse?concentra
turn of thought and effort. Said he, the Roman
ships basked in a pleasant sunshine; but when
by means of his mirror, miles off, Archimedes
gathered up their harmless rays and threw them
in a focus upon the ships, they burned them up.
\v e are not to trouble ourselves about the truth
s,lory. % to carefully inquire whether
Archimedes really burnt the Roman fleet or
not. No one, I believe, denies that it is theo
retically possible, at all events. So it is with
the intellectual powers. Scattered over ahuri^
tired objects, and they are imbecile. Concen
trate them on one, and they are almost omnipo
tent. lhe rays of the sun at Syracuse were
not hotter than elsewhere. It was not owing to
anything peculiar in the individual rays, but to
their concentration. Genius is not the excel
lence of any one quality of the mind, but a
concentration of all.
We are compelled to forego the pleasure of
following the eloquent speaker, in his apposite
quotations, vivid illustrations and multiplied
proofs in confirmation of the views lie so con
fidently maintained. He said, "I pause here to
pull up by the roots another error that is apt to
infect the minds of students. They read of the
inspiration of poets and orators, and conclude
that they must sit still as Omphalos, until the
expected afflatus comes?indu.ge in reverie, in
dolence and tobacco, hoping that in this way
they shall all onre feel the mightv impulse, and
find the dull, languid eye lighted up, and
"In fine phrenzy rolling."
A sillier mistake was never committed. There
is such an inspiration, but it comes not oy
yawning and castle-building. It is the birth of
painful thought Israel's Poet King found it
so. "Where 1 mused the fire burned." Even
the Psalmist's inspiration caine hot by chance,
nor was it thrust upon him. God gave it him
in accordance with the laws of human nature
and the human inind. Attentive thought and
concentration produce inspiration. The ma
chinery must work before it glows. Ilere again
all are on a level.
Providence has fixed labor as the price of
success in any thing. He has, also, mercifully
made it not only consistent with our happiness,
but conducive of it. The curse becomes a
blessing.
Sir William Hamilton defines pleasure to be
the reflex of unimpeded energy. Beginning
with Plato, who was tho first to at'emptto give
a definition of pain and pleasure, ho coines
down through the long succession of philoso
phers to the present, and, by a masterly gen
eralization, shows that all their apparently
diverse views resolve themselves at last, by a
little analysis, into this definition. Nor is this
alone the view of metaphysicians. I find the
Prince of American preachers, John M. Mason,
saying, in his eulogy on Washington, that "the
Omnipotent allots great enjoyment as the meed
of great exertion." Identically tho same idea.
Poets give us the same thought, diesscd in its
best attire. Shelly, in his exquisite ode to tho
skylark, says:
"With thy clear, been joyance,
Languor cannot be."
Coleridge speaks of the perennial fire-proofjoys
of constant employment. Kent says if one can
find pleasure in the continual enjoyment of de
lights, these soon pall upon us, in fact, the sooner
the more intense was their enjoyment There
is no permanent pleasure to be reaped except in
labor alone. Those who assert that thero is no
excellence without great labor, might have
added?there is no real happiness without great
labor. "Let us hear tho conclusion of the
whole matter." Bach of you, if you will, can
do a great, a good, a lasting work; and the ears
nest, untiring effort necessary to the accom
plishment of this work, is the very essence of
human happiness. These are the conditions of
life?Could you desire better ? Upon these con
ditions are you ready to go into the great battle
of life? Unions! Wimhingtoniant! what say
you? We are mortal, but our work, whether
good or bad, is immortal. When earth's monu
ments of brass have crumbled away?when
earth's eternal hills have melted?our work will
remain through endless times and eternities.
Will any of you skulk and hide behind the
wretched pretext of inability to do any thing?
To the earnest heart and unwavering" will, all
things are possible. There is no purely English
word?no single word from an Anglo Saxon
root?which conveys the idea of impossibility.
We have the word from the Latin, and we don't
thank the Romans for it Napoleon used to say,
it wos bad French?we can say it is not Anglo
Snxnn at all Chatham stamped upon impossi
bilities. To throw him into a towering passion,
it was only necessary for some of his colleagues
to suggest that his plans were impracticable.
Amidst the gathering responsibilities and
crowding issues of such an age as ours, dare any
man consult his ease or let his laziness com
pound with his duty?
Be not tho moping owl, content with his
crevice.in his tree and his shady neck of wood
?but be the eagle, strong in tho sun light?
dauntless in the storm. Burst the chrysalis
that confines your powers, and let them soar
over extensive and varied fields of usefulness.
Remember
"Life's more than breath and the quick rount: of blooil.
It la a fir-eat aplrit and a busy, heart.
The coward and the aiuatl In soul, scarce do lire;
One gen ?rous reeling?one greatthought? one deed of good,
ere night, would make lire longer seem,
Than If each year might number a thousand days;
We live in deeda, not year*?In thought", not breaths;
In feelings, not In figures on the dial; wo should count time
by heart throbs?he most lives
Who thinks most, reels the noblest, acts the best."
Let your hearts expand to-night to the inspi
ration of grand purposes?lofty views and noble
ends.
You can make your lives sublime. Away
with churlish fears! Down with r-'sing misgiv
ings! Toss irresolution to the winds! Bo done
coquetting with soft indolence and ease! Up to
the loud call of duty! Arouse ! the reveille of
the world is beating! On with the armor of
a steady purpose and a brave heart! Forward I
with the spirit and the courage of the light
brigade?the noble six hundred, as they dashed
down the valley of Balaklava. The issues of
life are before you?go, meet them like men.
