f. ' 1 M 1 ' : 'i i U: V i PLMT6MOUTH WEBKLY HERALD; TITORSDAV, AUGY8T 11, 1837. fl i ;. ii i I n i ! '1 : J) Tho Late John Taylor. It litis come down to us from ancient times that we should speak no evil of Di'i dead. It h u j.jood maxim, too; lut win n the liappiiifs of thousands is involved, the truth niu.ut lo told, even down to the (sepulchre. John Taylor, lata 1'resideiit and acknowledged prophet and neer of the Mormon church, has cased to live When he succeeded to the place held hy liriham Youni, under the theory of the creeil to which he belonged, he was, to his followers, the direct vicegerent on i-arth of the infinite iot. By that same theory, if he lacked wisdom before. th ordinaton and promotion to the Chief Priesthood placed him wln-re it would not be he that spoke, but the Creator speaking through him. When any sin stained man assumes, before trusting thousands, to fill suc h a role, it is but justice that his acts should be fail ly re viewed, for the grave even can give no sanctity to public .vrongs. John Taylor, in his youth, was given a liberal educa tion; being foreign born he was able, to compare the government of this country with that of other countries, and to un derstand that no other land compared with this in the mercies extended to its people. Yet, while the protection of this country was over him like u benediction for half a century, no word that fell from his lips in all that time revealed the slightest affection for this government. On the other hand, there are abundant evidences of the hate which he steadily felt for it. The best energies of his life were devoted to the establishment of a hostile kingdom in the midst of a free Republic, a kingdom in which the tyran ny of the ancient Asiatic world was to be reproduced, and where the many were to e but the unquestioning slaves of the few. In the face of the law he married many women, and though he saw the ef fects of polygamy in the family of the founder of the creed in Xauvoo, and the effects of it in his own family in this city, he clung to it, and when there was at last a law framed that struck a direct blow at the crime, with a kind of fury he drove his people into the commission of that crime; offered rewards to such as would commit it; treated with liU displeasure those who refused, and withdrew his con fidencc and approval from such as hav ing committed it, in good faith tried to make amends before the outraged laws. He not only exerted his influence as a man, but urged his commands upon a confiding people in God's own sovereign name. Hence, above his grave, it js but fair to record what he did, and to add the manifest fact that his life-work was grievous failure, lie left his people harassed and troubled and tossed about, even as a dismasted ship is tossed when left to the buffetings of pittiless storms and confused seas. We are saying noth ing of the sincerity of his convictions, except that, assuming him to be entirely sincere and devout, his teachings were all sinister and his life work was a dreary failure. We say this through no ill will who could hold ill will above an open grave? but as a duty, because it is the manifest duty of. the men who now have the control of the Mormon church, not to imitate or repeat his errors. The founda tion of all real religion is laid in mercy and in justice. This creed, as it has so far been carried on. lacks these two es sential elements. It is merciless and un just to women; it is unjust and merciless to men. It perverts the steadiest brain; It freezes the noblest attributes of the hu man heart; it places a clamp upon human f intellect and benumbs it; it is a direct and perpetual menace to free government and to the sacred American home. If, over the grave of John Taylor, to the hearts of those who are to succeed his rule, the light would come, to cause them to make their creed conform to the de mands of mercy, of justice and of civili zation, the result would be a transfigur ation of Utah equal to that w hich comes through that upheaval known as a geo logical period. Salt Lake Tribune. Persian Jewelers. The goldsmiths' and jewelers' shops in Persia present little attraction to the eye. Perhaps there is a small glass case con taining a few of the less costly objects; but the owners are not wealthy men, and keep little or no stock, merely working to order. Tiie artificer, with hisoue or two grimy journeymen, and perhaps a couple of apprentices, may be seen hard at work in the open air from morning till night. There they sit in the little brick archway, with the furnace of live charcoal, at which the youugest apprentice is seen blowing with a primitive bellows made of a goat skin. The tools are few and rough, but their work is invariably orig inal. With the silversmith it is another affair. So common is the use of silver that it is hardly looked upon as a precious metal. Electro-plating is not unknown; but it finds no favor in Persian eyes, coming under thi head of badel or sham. The silversmiths' bazaar in all the great Persian cities is a sight to see. In the East every trade has its own special quar ter. There is the shoemakers' bazaar, the coppersmiths' and the silversmiths'. There the rival artisans work side by side, and the result is a sort of perpetual competi tive exhibition. Pipe heads in endless variety, coffee pots, trays, bowls, banins, ewers and bottles here stand in glittering array and bewildering variety. There is no middleman; the maker is tho Tender, and stands or falls by his own work, Woe be to tho wretched silversmith who adulterates or alloys. There is no need of hull marks when the Pnrogah, or po lice-master, is ever on the alert to apply the bastinado to the feet of the swindler. The Persians are particular clever in both incised and chased work, and In re nousso work of the highest class. The incised work resembles the best of the Scinde work with w hich the recent Indian exhibition has mado most all familiar. As for chased work, tho Persian is inim itable. Every artisan it, prepared to pro duce scroll work and tracery strikingly original. Many a rngged workman can turn out representations of men and ani mals in motion, wonderful little groups, hattlo scenes, limiting fcenes and repre sentations of birds, fruits, foliage and ilowers. Engraving upon metal, in fact, is carried in Persia to its highest perfec tion. Pipe heads, water bottles, basins, ewers, and even spittoons, are often made of silver, and sometimes of gold; horse furniture and stirrups, trays, dishes, sword hilt and scabbards, dagger and knife handles, boxes and mirror frames, drink ing cups and goblets, as well as tea urns and services, are ordinarily made of the precious metals. Erery villager has his silver-mounted pistol; tho stock of his gun is often ornamented with silver plates. No lady, however por, would think of wearing aught but rnamcnts of the purest gold. Silver ornaments are only worn by the poor, the women of the wandering tribes, and by the negresses. Coral, too, being out of fashion, is rele gated to slaves. Ex. Death Rites In India. From Casscll's Illustrated History of India. It is but a few years ago that certain officials in Calcutta erected a laro oven, in which the bodies of the Hindoos might be rapidly cremated; but this wholesome mode of consuming was rejected as het erodox; yet still, on dark nights, and at the stated places on the holy river, from Calcutta up to Benares, may be seen the solemn flames that reduce the dead to ashes, and may be heard, on the still air of the Indian sky, the wailings that tell of sorrow and seperation. Tho Moham medan in India, as elsewhere, buries his dead; but the Hindoo commits their ashes to Father Gunga, amid the waters of which they are supposed to be restored to participate in happier scenesjthan earth can present a portion of mythology too vast to be entered on here. To be with out a son to close one's eyes is to insure another period oi probation and per haps a degrading one in this world; hence the law of adoption, to which we have had so often to refer. To die in Be nare3 is to secure immortality; and to die on the banks of the Ganges the highway to heaven is essential to everlasting joy. Hence, on the Burning Ghaut at Calcutta may be seen at times six or seven bodies, each on its pile of wood often of the most costly description, if the people be wealthy surrounded by officiating Brah- mans and mourning friends. The Par- seer dispose otherwise of their dead. On a hill in the Island of Bombay (called by the Europeans Malabar nill) stand, all within a short distance of each ether, the church-yard of the Christians, the ceme tery of the Mussulman, the place where the Hindoos cremate their dead, and the Tower of Silence, where the Parsees leave their uneofiined, to be devoured by the birds of the air. It is a lofty square in closure, without roof or covering of any kind. Huge bloated vultures and kites, gorged with human flesh, throng lazily the summit of the lofty wall surrounding the stone pavement, which is divided int three compartments, wherein the corpses of men, of women, and of children are laid apart, and all nude as they came in to the world. Some relative or friend anxiously watches, at a short distance, to ascertain which eye is first plucked out by the birds; and from thence it is in ferred whether the soul of the departed is happy or miserable. The Parsees re gard with horror the Hindoo method f disposing of the dead, by throwing the bodies or ashes into rivers; yet their own custom is even more repugnant to the feelings of Europeans in India. A Famous Chinese Fisherman. From the Youth's Companion. In China the hook-and-line fisherman is an object of general consideration, and is regarded, from the very fact that ho is an angler, as a person of unusual discrim ination, as a philosopher and wise man. Many Chinamen become professors, lit erary men, diplomatists, even, after a pre liminary period spent in nothing but ang ling. Moreover, whereas in this part of the world public men, after a career hon orably spent in the service of the state, often choose to retire to the country and become farmers, the great Chinese man darins who have made their reputation and fortune take up their hook and line and go' angling for the rest of their lives. The most famous fisherman of China was the illustrious Yen-Tsen-Ling. He loved his fishing-rod so detrly that he declined all the honors that the Emperor Kwang-Yoo sought to heap upon him. 1 Tne Emperor, in order to tempt him from his fishing-grounds, on the River-Foo Thoon, where he had attained a great re putation for wisdom, continued to offer him greater and greater offices and richer and richer prizes. But Yen-Tsen-Linj stuck to his fishing rod. He was drested in a simple sheep skin garment, lived upon the fish he him self caught, frying them over a firo of dry bamboo sticks, and eating them with little rice, served on the green leaves of the nenuphar tree. After his death a magnificent temple was reared to hini on tho bank of tho Foo-Thoon. His portrait, life-size, and framed in a beautiful ode to him, which is one of the most brilliant of the Chinese classics, in still preserved in this temple, A Long Tramway. The longest tramway in the world will be that which is to connect a number of towns near Buenos Ayres, S. A, and which will have a total length or 200 miles. Tho road will also be exceptional in that sleeping cars will bo run upon it for the accomodation of passengers. Hor ses will be employed as a motive power instead of steam becausehorses are cheap, fuel is dear,and the people are slow. The price of two tons of coal will buy a horse with its harness. Tho sleeping cars and cars and all other equipments of tho line are being supplied by a Philadelphia company, anil these cars are stated to be curiosities. They are four in number, 18 feet in length, and are furnished with four berths each, which are made to roll up when not in use. The cars are fur nished with lavatories, water coolers, lin en presses, and other conveniences, and are finished throughout with mahogany. The other rolling stock comprises four double decked open cars, twenty plat form cars, twenty gondola cars, six re frigerator cars, four poultry cars, fur nished with coops, eight cattle cars, tw o flerrick cars for lifting heavy material, and 200 box cars. Industrial Gazette. A lawyer driving along a country road asked a woman who was walking in the same direction which way he had to turn to reach B . The woman gave him directions and then added that she was going in that direction and would point out the way. "All right, good woman," said the lawyer, "jump up; bet ter bad company than none." After jog ging some miles further tho woman de scended and thanked him for tho drive. "Have I much further to go ero I reach the B road?" asked the limb of the law. "Oh, you passed it some two or three miles back," was the answer, "but as I thought bad company better than none I brought you on." Unidentified. Brace Up.
