A pal ry knave A clog uj on the w heels of time. With work to do. and afore of health, 'the man’s unworthy to be fiee, U ho will not give. That he may live, His daily toil for daily fee. No ! let us work ’ We only ask Reward proportion’d to our task; We hate no quarrel with the great— No eud with rank— With mill oi bank— No envy of a lord's estate. If we can earn sufficient store lo satisfy uui dailv need, And can letaiu For age and pain, A fraction: wo are rich indeed. \ No dread of toil have w§ or ours. \\ e know our worth, and weigh our powers The more wo work, the mote »e win . t- access lo trade ; Success to spade' And to the corn that’s coming iu I Aiej joy to him who o'er his task K members toil is nature's plan; Who. wording, thinks, And never -mss His independence as a man. Who only asks for humblest wealth. Vnough f..r competence and health; And leisiue when his woik is done To read his book By chimney nook, fir stroll at setting of the sun; Who toils as ever) man should toil.

B. Loafers in a Printing Office.— The composing room of a printing office is not the place to tell long stories or ar gue p i tv in metaphysics,— Head you lounge, s and be advised. \ printing office is like a school ; it can have no interlopers, hangers-on, or twaddlers, without a sciious inconveni ence to say nothing of loss of time wl i h is just as good as gold to the printer—as though it metal icly glistened in his hand. What should be thought of a man who would enter a school and twaddle first with the teacher and then with the scholars interrupting the dis cipline of one and the studies of the oth er r And yet this is the precise effect of the loafers with the course ofbusimss —distracts the great attention which is necessary to the good pi inter.—No gen tleman will ever enter it and presume t> act the loafer, lie will feel above it, for no real man ever sacrifices the inter ests of or interfere with the duties of others The loafer does both. Let him think, if ho never has, that the last place he should ever iusinuate his woith less and unwdeomed presence is in the printing office. AperioßMilliig tte^orth. It longer news to cal] us a fast people, Jb logger a Compliment to tell us we are progrcaaive We see and feel that we are both. Wetcan see it in the settlement of territory after territory, in life admission of State after State, in the long lines of emigrant wagons continually wending their way to the land where the east and the west meet, and where the “ star of empire,” aaving fulfilled its mission, has gone down forever in the ' deep bosom of the Pacific ; we can hear it in the scream of the steam whistle as it dies away uncchoed on the broad pam pas of the West, in the click of the tel egraph in every State and almost every town of the Union, in the hum of the printing-press and the din of falling hammers from oqsan to ocean. This is a fast age ; all the world is moving with twice the rapidity qf fifty years ago ; yet We are fifty years in ad vance of the refcfcbf the world in restless strength, daring vigor and reckless ad venture. Place us side by side, and see how we will diajpmce the best of them! The Frazer . iver excitement fairly dem onstrates our superiority It is claimed that the cxLteoee of gold on Frazer and Thompson been known to tße Hudson Bay Company for years—that the soil of Vapiteter is rich a£d the cli mate delightfufllsihat the Puget Sound country is a northern the regions north of the parallel of forty nine possess all,the requisites foY the suppejt of a large population ; and yet it might have remained unprospected and uatilied (or years, with no embryo cities to give a harvest to speculation, BO printing press to herald its glories,, had/it nof been touch a*’ with the magic of American enterprise What peophjtswye tbefYan kees couluhave done-in so short a times what has already,beca acfiomplishgd there ? • 'l* i ty th bf?a. |ftfrhnfl : ‘po ViT i uTf> cliaftj been laid out,Steamboats - naye been I placed upon its livers, trails have been’ cut through the passes of the mountains, the mines have been prospected found wt\thless in comparison with those 1 of California, and two newspapers, one of them a daily, hive been started, and are still published there ! Is all this not wonderful! And it has been done, too, solely in response to a vague report that i gold was to be found on Frazer river ! Hut the newspapers—let us speak of them. There is something new and grand in the idea of the press leading the van of settlement and civilization, instead of following in the path of the pioneer, as has heretofore been the case. There is something American in that, something worth thinking of; it is one feature, at least, in Yankee go-ahead ism, in which we may with reason feel a pride. What must our fogy brethren in she North have thought at seeing, first a load of passengers and then a printirg press ! 1 hey asked us for men, not newspapers, and we gave them both. The tiles of a daily paper from Van couver’s Island look strange to us. Five years ago the city of Liverpool had not a single daily paper. Less than ten years ago the island of Vancouver was ceded to the Hudson Bay Company, with the stipulation that a fort and set tlement be made there within five years. What was known of the British posses sions north of Washington Territory and west of Lake Superior one year since ? Little enough, except that it was under the control of the Hudson Bay Company, who ruled the white inhabitants of the country with despotic power, who gained a princely revenue by trading with the Indians and dealing in furs, and whose transactions were a mystery to the gov ernment under which they hold their charter, as well as to the rest of the world. Now a daily newspaper is pub lished at Victoria— a newspaper, through whose columns the heart and soul of a community may be seen. In the Gazette we see the account of a school examination, with the awarding of prizes and the reading of an address. Unknown to the world, the school may have passed many such examinations, enlivened by music and encouraged by the presence of the Governor, but it is the first time Jessie M’Kenzie, William Thompson and Christiana Yeitch have ever figured in print as the recipients of “ rewards of merit.” The little ones will at least bless the Yankees for print ing a newspaper among them. The pro cee lings of the “ House of Assembly ” are also reported The members of that body, whose words had probably never before passed beyond the walls of the building, must have felt a thrill of some kind upon picking up the morning paper of the Yankees and seeing, for the first time, every line they had uttered the night before in print. John Bull will yet learn the secret of American pro gress Golden Era. The Little Gatherer.—A short time ago, we saw a little child, gatheiing flowers ; it was a bright, rosy-cheeked boy, just able to run about and clamber j up the small knolls whereon nature had spread her frail and tender blossoms; and his tiny hands being filled with flow ers, he hastened, with laughing eyes and shouts of unrestrained happiness, to pour thejp into the lap of his mother, who sat stifling with love and joy upon the scene exemplification of infantile innocence and purity and affection; sweet dream of childhood, not yet expanding into the future, with nothing of regret or painful remembrance in the past; an ever present vision of sunshine, with but momentary obscuration of clouds to dar ken its day of happiness; elysium oflife, when thought is in the bud, and care and grief, except for the'instant, are un known. And* whAt ip to be the future of the lijttle bein£‘ whose earliest aspira fjoMjQ-e so evidently for the beautiful, blank page of whose tender mi u ibnatyejgprintg her sweetest* ima- out beiore us like a viting landscape, 'with but a small'strip of intervening desert, which, once Enter ed, we find we are never do leave : the joyous scenery ever before us, but never reached, till ago, disappointment and care exhaust our energies and dim our vision, and we see it no longer. But it is cruel to anticipate. Go 00, dear little child, whoever thou art; cull the buds and blossoms around thee: anon, chase the many hued and gilded butterfly: more advanced, strain thy knowledge of numbers in trying to count the stars, or lie upon the grass, engaged in speculations upon the age and char acteristics of the “ man in the moon \ ‘sufficient for the day is the evil thereof," | ami may thine glide on in happiness and end in peace! — Sierra Citizen. John Poe and Richard Roe.— The distinguished gentlemen, above mentioned, are as we understand it, the regular Democratic nominees for Con gress at the ensuing election. In submitting their names to the pub lic as the representatives of our party, at this important crisis, we cannot ab stain from a brief reference to their past lives, conduct, and services. Un like oue of their notorious competitors, neither Mr. Doe or Mr. Roe, have ever been “dragged from a coyote hole and transferred to the Senate of the State, &e.’’ On the contrary, at the same time that they have been valuable and important members of society, their mo desty has been their principle virtue Of old English stock, (therefore not ob noxious to the charge of Know-Nothing ism,) they have been known to the '•’■common law ’’ of the land, before the adoption of the Topeka Constitution, or the organization of the Cocos Island Treasure scheme. We solicit for them the support of every honest Democrat, who detests the treachery of the amia ble Joe, the imbecility of the redoubt able Dudley.or the Ethiopian proclivities of the virtuous and erudite Tracy.— San Francisco National. The wind blew, the snow flow, and raised particular thunder—with skirt and hoops and chicken coops—and all such kinds of plunder. Keeper tublllly. There is no certain terra in common use so much abused, misused and mis understood as the term “respectable.” We hear of respectable society; a res pectable company; a respectable citi zen ; a respectable neighborhood : res pectable newspapers, and a thousand other respectable things, without re ceiving the slightest idea of what is meant by the term respectable. The fact is, it is a term without any limit to his definition. It means one thing in one circle, and a very different thing in another circle. In a low tippling cellar in Orange street where the inmates aro stepped in vice and bad rum, a great er insult cannot be given than for one party to say, sneeringly to another, “You are not a respectable person.” And to say, “You are no gentleman,” involves a pair of black eyes, and a bloody nose. The laboring man who supports his family and, is attentive to all the duties which devolve up n him, striving to the utmost of his humble means to maintain an honorable position in society by ed ucating bis children, and clothing them neatly, is called a respectable man They who are peciunarily above him in the social S3ale patronizingly call him respectable—that is, he is respectable so long as he keeps himself in Ids hum ble sphere and is contented tolive and strive through as an humble member of society. For our own part we regard such a man as one of the most honorable , men in the community. But there are those who, honest and honorable as he is, will not associate with him, and con sider themselves above him, not because they are better educated or more refined, b«4t ajnfyv because are able to buy chairs and_a Brussels *' V n ■Bopr than, struggling with poverty,ljna beUring up bravely against liie, lose a sooner a dishonorable action, who makes the truth bis guiding star, and virtue and personal honor his constant companions, is not a “respectable” man because his means will not allow him to throw aside a seedy coat or to mix in well-dressed society. On the other hand, the man who can wear a coat of the latest fashion , can decorate’ his person with jewels, and who always has a well filled purse (no matter how he obtained it whether by fraud, dishonor or tricks, of the most odious kind) is respectable, because he has all outward signs of respectability, and is received with the warmest wel come into respectable society. He may bo reeking with the consequence of un restricted licentuosness, and his habits in this respect may be well known, yet respectable doors are opened to him, fond mothers introduce their daughters to him, and young ladies themselves seek his company, and will excuse or palliate his offences by saying, “he was a young man of spirit, and when he is married and settled down in life will outgrow all these little peccadilloes.” More “Bjg Trees.” —The editor o the Mariposa Gazette has discovered a grove of trees, in the neighborhood of the sources of the San Joaquin and Fresno rivers “which in number and size surpass any before discovered.” There are probably 1,000 of them, some measuring as much as 125 feet in cir cumference. Doggctt, the actor, was a man of great humanity, as will appear by this anecdote. His landlady,s maid, having an opportunity to go into his chamber one afternoon, cut her throat with one of his razors. Hoggett, when told of it behind the scenes, cried out with great emotion, “Zounds, I hope it was not with my best razor !’’ Gustavus Adolphus knew how to put down duelling. Two officers asked leave to fight a duel. Leave was given and he was a spectator. With him came the Provost Marshal. ‘ Now gen tlemen,” said Gustavus to his combat ants, “fight till one of you is killed ; the Provost Marshal will hang the survivor.” i The officers shook hands.
