THE HYDRAULIC PRESS.
Love of Money, not for its own sake only, but, for the good it can purchase, is not the despicable trait your sour-grape philosophers would have us believe. The prosperity of the American people is largely due to their com mendable desire and industrious strug gles for pecuniary independence, as any one acquainted with our history will readily admit. The very free dom of our political institutions, is ow ing, in a great degree, to our materi al abundance—to the independent temper of our land-owning colonial progenitors. Tho poverty of the masses in foreign countries is the real secret of their present subjugation to tyrany. Here wo have a population of fium twenty four to thirty millions, whose annual nett earnings per head have been estimated to be about one hun dred dollars, whilst, in Europe the annual nett earnings per head do not exceed one fiftieth of that amount. — Can poverty like this maintain free dom ?—Unfortunately, however, love of money can not bo confined to its legitimate bounds. The unholy spir it of gain will possess some men and some communities exclusively; and the useful metal, instead of remaining the mere convenienco for which it was originally designed, becomes to vast numbers 'of people a positive tyranny, blighting the affections and sympathies of our nature, narrowing the mind,contaminating the best things and leading to falsehood, to robbery, to prostitution of tho noblest gifts. It is a source of deep regret, to all amongst us who are not bound hand and soul to the service of mammon that, as a nation, we afford so much ground for the reproach—so common in the mouths of foreigners—that we are slaves to “the Almighty dollar.” This is not to be regretted because it is said of us, but becauss it is in it self reproachful. It is undoubtedly true that money is obstrusively the ruling motive in most enterprises, however excellent otherwise. Though, for our part, wo see no reason to believe our country at all peculiar in this respect, and we only apeak so strongly of our own share of the sin, because it is our conviction that wo should afford tho world an example of such liberality as ought to spring from our free institutions. In Europe,tho masses, whatever their desire may be, are mostly debarred, by the circumstances of their birth and education, and by the fixed sur roundings which confine them, from joining in tho struggle for wealth that is going on above them. England may boast, as we do, that the road to wealth and position is open to all her citizens; it is a fact, that comparative ly few of them ever enter upon it: the middle classes frequently do, but the lower seldom. The immense wealth of the country is confined to a small number. There is no free land to stimulate free labor—no public land to be purchased at any price. The most that England can do in the way of materially assisting her people, is, to give them six ponce a day for figh ting her battles. In the United States, on the contrary, every man, except the indolent, and the unfortu* nate poor of our large cities, is a busy fortune seeker. Honesty and ability are a sure competence to their posses sor, no matter what his origin, and every man may become an independ ent land-owner at a small cost—and even for that he is allowed to be the creditor of the General Government for a reasonable period. These cir cumstances combine to form the spec tacle of a whole people apparently absorbed in money-making; and the charge of sordidness, true though it unfortunately may be, proceeds quite often from an unacknowledged envy, we verily believe. Still, we deserve the reproach. Money is undoubtedly a God among us, —a filthy God, who pollutes with his presence the temples of Christianity and the very sanctua ry of home. Addition to oub Population.— Under this heading our exchanges are all recording the expected advent amongst us of some 300 Shakers. Well, let them come, —but how a col ony of people who strictly practice celibacy, and who believe the only way to remove sin from the world is to depopulate it, —we say, how such dry moralists can benefit California we do not see. Perhaps though, the climate may proselyte them to the world’s opinions. Origin or (he Stocking Frame. Not long since we told how sewing machines came to bo invented —the death of some young girls by con sumption, contracted over the needle, inspiring the beneficent idea in the sympathetic brain of a neighbor me chanic ; and now wo give, condensed from the Scientific American , the origin of the stocking frame. These two narratives illustrate the remark that the annals of invention have their romantic incidents no less than those of love. So long ago as 1559, a cer tain Reverend, by name William Lee, A. M., of St. John’s College, Cam bridge, fell in love with a young wo* man, as men have done before and will do again. The maiden either was very industrious, or very mali cious, for whenever the Rev. lover called upon her she w T as invariably knitting a stocking, and paid but little attention to his honied remarks. “His desire for a wife soon changed into a malevolent determination to spoil her knitting forever, by inventing a ma chine that would supersede stocking making by hand. He visited the lady as seduously as ever,” but not to make love ; “ his purpose was to learn the mystery of knitting, that he might contrive to do similar work with iron fingers.” For several years he studied hard over his novel machine, and at last it was completed. Meanwhile, however, Leo’s love for his lady was supplanted by the attractions of his invention ; and although the lady her self, subdued either by his indifference or by pity, sought to regain his affec tions, he continued obdurately insen sible. “Ho abandoned his curacy, shut his heart against affections, and wove stockings in his head from morn ing till night. The result was that though he succeeded to the utmost in his invention, he died in Paris, in concealment, grief, and poverty.” Every great and commanding mo ment in the annals of the world is the triumph of some enthusiasm. The victories of the Arabs after Mahomet, who, in a few years, from a small be ginning, established a larger empire than that of Rome, is an example.— They did they knew not what. The naked Derar, horsed on an idea, was found an over-match for a troop of Roman Cavalry. The women fought like men, and conquered the Romen men. They were Temperance troops. There was neither brandy nor flesh needed to feed them. They conquer ed Asia, and Africa, and Spain, on barley. The Caliph Omar’s walking stick struck more terror into those who saw it, than another man’s sword. His diet was barley bread; his sauce was salt; and oftentimes by way of abstinence he ate his bread without salt. His drink was water. His palace was built of mud; and when he left Medina to go to the conquest of Jerusalem, he road on a red cam el with a wooden platter hanging at his saddle, with a bottle of water and two sacks, one holding barley and the other dried fruit.— Emerson. There is nothing unsightly or tire some on the earth; sorrow, horror, weariness and disgust are not in these thousand creatures that animate the world. They are in the heart of man, who diffuses them over certain days, over nature, as, on other days, with out more reason, he pleases to em bellish them with his transitory joy. Let us not be in haste to condemn certain beings to reprobation; let us regard them sooner with respect, as created by God, who knows better than we the secret of universal life; and, when religion, morality, and phi losophy exhort us to revere in the most humble creature a wonder which confounds our presumptuous knowl edge, let us admire and love every thing that has life, and not kill it— for it is necessary that every one should live its life. —Some Journal. A Michigan Joke. —The Detroit Board of Education, who must be a little waggishly inclined, have adopted as a device for the seal of that body a handsome young mistress with a thriving younkcr across her lap. The loft hand is uplifted, having a stout leather strap in the act of descending upon the younker aforesaid, whose mouth is wide open, from which issues the motto of zeal, — “Strike, but hear me.”— [Exchange. In reply to this, the Philadelphia Ledger remarks that children are not benefitted much by instruction, when the teacher begins to operate at the wrong end. As the mind is in the brain, common sense teaches that the direct application of means of instruction should be to the head.— The plan opposite to this is adopted only by quacks in the business of in struction, whose physical is greater than their intellectual development. | Governments are not made but grown; not fashioned like this build ing, but developed like the pines on! yonder hillsides. Everything in a republic is afloat—there is nothing settled. Neither Congress nor Cabi net decide policies or make laws. — Tell me the talk of the street—what the Herald and the Tribune say, in reflection of public opinion, and I can tell you what the statute is to be.— * * * * A republic has no natural conservative elements—its only emblem is the ocean, only pure, because always in motion. * * * The world is necessarily divided into two classes,the conservatives who look wistfully over their shoulders at the past, and as Douglas Jerrold says, regret to see the new moon, so great is their respect for the old, —and the progressives, who fancy every change an improvement, and are like the Spanish Prince who said he could have planned the planetary system better if he had only been consulted. Both are useful, are not to be gotten rid of, are indispensable; the only question is their respective functions. * ♦ ♦ ♦ **** "Where is there independence in party or politician ? An eminent statesman says he has not spoken his own mind for 20 years. Politics are like snakes—the tail moves the head. The leaders hang out their banners but they never march forward till they see the people behind. A boy on the steamboat mistook the beam playing upon the deck for the engine —he did not know that there was a fanatic down in the hold that supplied the power and did the work. Wendell Phillips. Forgiveness. —The brave only know how to forgive; it is the most refined and generous pitch of virtue human nature can arrive at. Cowards have done good and kind actions— cowards have even fought, nay, some* times conquered; but a coward never forgave; it is not in his nature; the power of doing it flows only from a strength and greatness of soul con scious of its own force and security, and above all the little temptations of resenting every fruitless attempt to interrupt its happiness. The Mule Population.— Although the mule, since his race began, has been named as the most stupid and obstinate of brutes, we entertain a respect for him. The mule population of these mountains possess traits of character which render them useful, res pectable and worthy of admiration. The mule seems to be a creature intended for ser vice on the narrow trails of this uneven up per country. His stout back and careful feet are the best of mountain traveling facilities. Mount and start on the winding path before you; soon you reach precipitous and rocky hills, up which it would be painfully toilsome to go on foot. But your mule walks steadily to the summit and cautiously and safely car ries you along the rough declivity, his small and beautifully formed feet touching nothing that might endanger himself or rider. Bo not pull upon the rein, let him select footstep places, and though the time be blackest night he will not leave the trail or stumble, or fall. You will be borne around the steep hills where the horse would tremble with fear, and where you would not be pleased to walk. Down thousands of feet the precipice extends below the little mark of a road, and you hear the ceaseless voice of chasing waters, which you cannot see. Before and behind you, and on cither side, stand the great earth-towers setting forth their shadows, and under the solemn influence of wonderful and diversified locality you pass from hight to hight think ing that the whole race of mules has been ungenerously and vituperatively misrepre sented. — Sierra Citizen. Iron In England. The following extract is from an article in a late number of the London Art Journal : “ England may, in a peculiarly appropri ate manner—when considering the position which she holds among the nations—desig nate this as her Iron Age. In all parts of the country the earth is pierced in search of iron ore; and the blaze of iron furnaces il lumines the midnight sky wherever the prox imity of coal admits of its being smelted. The island is traversed in all directions by iron roads —iron buildings receive us at the ends of all the railways—iron enters more or less into the structure of nearly all our large edifices. The Temple of the Italian muse has sprung, like Aladdin’s palace, into sudden existence by the aid of iron; and the Crystal Palace stands on its hill at Sydenham, a tri umph which might be dedicated to Vulcan, as the work of the Cyclopes. On the river, and on the ocean, iron exerts its power; and from the canal boat to the Leviathan, iron boiler plate has taken the place of wood. Iron ap pears to be destined to aid largely in the progress of civilization, for “ homogeneous metal,” —a kind of semi-steel —is employed in the construction of the small steamer in which Livingston is to lay open the tre isures of Central Africa to the world. Iron, too, has invaded the domains of fashion ; the fact that one house in Sheffield had a few weeks since orders for sixty-five tons of steel for la dies’ petticoats will prove how successful the invasion has been. To achieve these triumphs the iron-making powers of the country have been taxed to the utmost, * • * * More than three millions and a half tons of pig iron—equal in value to upwards of twelve million sterling (sixty millions of dollars) — are produced each year in these small islands. This, it must be remembered, is the value of this metal, ere any cost beyond that of smelt ing is incurred upon it. When this is con verted into bars and rails only, the value is more than doubled; and when we have this important element, by the aid of skilled la bor, manufactured into all the numerous ar ticles for use and for ornament to which it is applied, its value is increased more than a hundred fold.” A max ceases to be a “good fellow” the mo ment he refuses to do precisely what other people wish him to do.
