THERE'S ROOM ENOUGH FOR ALL.
What need of all this fust and strife, Kaeh warring with his brother? Why should we, in the crowd of life, Keep trampling down each other? la there no goal that can be won, , Without a squeeze to gain it? No other way of getting on. But scrambling to obtain it? Oh. fellow-men, hear wisdom, then, In friendly warning call— Your claims decide, the world is wide,— There's room enough for all. What if the swarthy peasant find No field for honest labor, He need not idly stop behind, To thrust aside his neighbor. There is aland with sunny skies Which gold for toil is giving. Where every hrawny hand that tries, flan grasp an honest living. Oh! fellow-men—remember thru — Whatever chance befall, The world is wide—where those nhidc, There's room enough for all. I From poisoned air ye breathe in courts, And typhus tainted alley’s, Oo forth and dwell where health resorts, In fertile hills and valleys ; Where every man that clears a bough, 1 Finds plenty in attendance. Up, leave your loathsome cities now. And toil for independence. Oh, hasten, then, from fevered den, And lodging cramp and small: The world is wide—in land beside, There’s room enough for all. In this fair region far away, Will labor find employment— A fair day’s work, a fair day’s play, And toil will earn enjoyment. What need then of this daily strife, Where each wars with his brother? Why need we, through the crowd of life Keep trampling down each other; From rags ami crime—that distant clime Will free the paupers thrall; Take fortunes tide—the world so wide, Has room enough for all. i TELL HE! “Tell me, angelic host, * Ye messengers of love, Khali swindled printers here below Have no redress above?” The shining angel band replied— •‘To us is knowledge given : Delinquents on the printers’ books Cun never enter heaven!” -1 mm • ——— Southern “Aristocrats.” Soon after the fall of the Confederacy, •we sometimes heard ignorant and envi ous men say that the war had done at least one good—it had broken down and destroyed the “aristocracy” of the South. Such expressions were quite common among low fellows who dodged conscrip tion—more common than among .the peo tple of the North. (Using the word in its more odious sense, the "aristocracy” of the South has been badly broken down by the destruction of [property. If the word “aristocrats” is (understood as meaning merely those raised .above the necessity of labor or care by wealth, then it cannot be denied that (when their property was destroyed such ■aristocrats became as little, or less, than itheir working neighbors. We know well enough that there were in all parts of our States very many persons who had little >to pride themselves upon aside from their property, who lacked education, refinement and all the adjuncts of high civilization, yet who boasted of their wealth and exacted the deference of the less favored. Many ofthem were of the loud-mouthed school of citizens, who did and said much to bring about the hostile feeding which eventually (caused war, and who did very little towards .carrying on the war which they had aided in inaugurating. Hut these men and their families were not the Southern “aristocracy” in any just sense of the term. They arc not of the “best and highest” ■ of our Southern citizens. If it is thought proper to class as aristocracy those who were recognized as best and noblest, the (leaders in soeietv. the fmide in mihlic affairs, the patrons of taste, the heirs of ancestral respectability, the supporters of noble characters, the founders of schools the builders of churches, the exemplers of female excellence and the upholders of honor—if such were our aristocrats, then we deny that the war has destroyed our aristocracy. Their numbers are thinned, for many scions of stock, made noble by virtue and excellence, have been cut off. The wealth which was to them a means of beneficence, it. is true, has been destroyed. War has swept over their homes. The happy dwellings where hospitality was dis pensed are, many of them, in ruins. Plantations are covered with weeds; a tangled, rank undergrowth has usurped garden walks and invaded flower beds; cold ashes of burnt houses cover many cold hearthstones, and idle weeds are creeping over the gray ash-heaps. The “fire storm of ruin” has been everywhere, and very much of what man had done to beautify and enrich our Southern land, has, by the hand of man been undone* But the storm that swept away the wealth of good and worthy people has left un scared and unstained that better and higher wealth which adorned prosperity and now clothes adversity with honor. We some times think that the war, which developed so often the latent seeds of unknown qualities, has produced a higher and healthier pride of character, a higher esti mate of moral worth aud mental excellence a higher worship of honor, a deeper regard for female worth, a more reverent filial love, a more earnest affection among sur viving kindred, heartier love among the friends who are left. Before the war, as now, the pride and boasts of the South were her true women and her trusty men. Ilcr greatest wealth now lies in the noble character of her best citizens. These make up an aristocracy such as was never based on wealth, and such as misfortune and loss can never de stroy.—[New Orleans Crescent. -1 i S&T’ Question lor logicians.
