The Old Philosopher's Advice to
a Young One,
Wlio va afraid to speak his mind on, a
ST CIIAat.ES MACKAT.
Shame upon thee, craven spirit I
Is it manly, just, or brave,
If a truth has shown within thee,
To conceal the light it gave?
Captive of tha world's opinion
Free to speakhut yet alave ?
All conviction should be valiant
Tell thy truth it truth It bs
Never seek to stem Us current
Thoughts, like rivers, find tha act
It will fit the widening circle
Of Eternal Verity.
Speak thy thought If thou believ'it it,
Let it jostle whom it may,
Even though tha foolish acorn It, , '
Or the obstinate gainsay j '
Every aeed that grows to-morrow,
Lies beneath a clod to-day.
If our aires, the noble-hearted
Pione-rs of things to come,
Had, like thee, been weak and timid,
Traitors to themselves, and dumb '
Where would be our present knowledge,
Where tha hoped Millennium ?
Where would be triumphant Science,
Searching with her fearless eyes,
Through the Infinite creation
In the aoul that underlies
Soul of Beauty, aoul of Greatness,
, Wisdom of the earth and aklea?
Where would ba all great Inventiona,
Each from by-gona fancies born,
Issued first in doubt and darkneas,
Launched 'mid apathy or acorn?
How could noontime ever light us,
But for dawning of the morn?
Where would be our free opinion,
Where the right to speak at all,
If our sires, like thee, mistrustful,
Had been deaf to duty's call,
And concealed tha thoughts within them
Lying down for fear to fall ?
Should an honest thought, unspoken,
Lead thee unto chains or death
What is life, compared with Virtue?
Shalt thou not survive thy breath ?
Hark I the future ag invites thee I
Listen, trembler, what it aaith I
It demands thy thought in Juatice,
Debt, not tribute of tha free )
Have not ages, long departed,
Groaned, and toiled, and bled for thee?
If the past have lent thee wiadom,
Pay it to Futurity.
The Iron Harp.
BT A. BOOANNE.
Let him who will rehearse the song
Of gentle love and bright romance !
Let him who will with tippling tongus,
Lead gleaming thoughts to Fancy's dance
Bu let mb strike mine Iron Harp,
As Northern Harps were struck of old 1
And let its music, clear and sharp,
Arouse the free and bold 1
My hands that Iron Harp shall eweep,
Till from each stroke new strains recoil j
And forth the sounding echoes leap,
To join the arousing Song of Toil
Till men of mind their thoughts outspeak,
And thoughts awake in kindred mind,
And stirring words shall nervs tha weak,
And fetters ceass to bind I
And crashing soon o'er soul and sense,
That glorious harp whose iron strings
Are Lasos's mighty instruments,
Shall shake the thrones of mortal kings,
And ring of axe, and anvil note,
And rush of Plough through yielding soil,
And laboring angines's vocal throat,
Shall swell the Sono e-r Tou !
Americans at Rome.
"Burleigh," tho Boston Journal's Now
York correspondent, rolates the following
hiciJent: , , , ,
In tho great hall of iho Propaganda at
Home may be seen in one corner two
flngs of tho United States. They stand
alono. It excites great surprise that our
standard should be in this place of Papal
power and no others and on inquiry the
American will be told that in the lata re
bullion, when tho Italians aro?e against
the government, the leuder of the land
planted his cannon against tho hall of the
Propaganda, and resolved to luvol that
ancient btructure to tho grouud. The
Pupal authorities railed on Mr. Cass and
urged to suvo the building by he power
of the American flng. They tola him
that neither the flag of England, France,
nor Austria would be repuciud ', but that
the American flag would. After much
herniation Air. Cass removed his consu
late from the position he then occupied to
Propaganda gave pub'ic notice of the
removal and raised the flag of our Un
ion over its roof. The chief of the insur
gents remonstrated swore ho would fire
on the flag made his cannon ready, and
moved away. The Propaganda was ear
edand the flags have thia honor for tho
good they did in the time of peril.
On this acccunt the Americans have
distinguished favors conferred on them
through Mr. Cass .among others tho
unusual mark of having religions worship
in the hoi'so of the Consul. The Kngliah
have no such favors. They can only oc
cupy a amall chapel outside of the walls
of Koine, and John Bull is quite iore and
mad on the subject. He does not relish
tho idea of worshipping God outside the
walls, while the Americans pay their de
votions in the palace. The opening of his
bouse to Protestant worship, without ' sec
tarianism, has made Mr. Cass tiuite pop
ular. The service is Catholic i t the best
sense." To it all sects rfpajr. ' In the
morning the form of worship is on the
Presbyterian or Congregational model.
In the afternoon it is Kpiscopal. And
this ii the only place in Rome where Prot
estant worship is held in the English lan
guage. And this open to all. While Mr.
Cass is our Consul, this free public wor
ship will ' remain undisturbed. But it
makes trouble. The other nations de
mand of Home what is conceded to Amer
icans. To grant this demand is to proclaim
toleration to all sects iu the capital of the
Romish church and under the hand of the
Pope. And now one of two things must
be done: either the American Chapel
must be closed, or all others must be op
ened. It cannot be closed while Mr. Cass
remains. His eminent services forbid
this as well as the approbation of the Pope.
It can be done by the removal of Mr.Cass
and the appointment of a Roman Catholic
in bis placr That is now flemnnaea, ana
the friends of civil and religious liberty
are bestiriug thenielves to have Mr. Cass
retained. Mr. McMasters, the editor f
the Freeman's Journal, is spoken of as
likely to succeed Mr. Cass.
She Wouldn't Marry a Mechanic.
A young man commenced visiting a
voune woman, and appeared to be well
pleased. One evening he called when it'
wa quite late, which led the young girl
to inquire where it was he had been.
" I had to work to-night.M
What ! D you work for a living V
she nquired in astonishment.
"Certainly," replied the young' man,
'I'm a mechanic
and she turned up hr pretty nose.
That was the last time the young me
chanic visited the young woman. lie is
now a wealthy man, and he has one of
the best women in the country Jar a wife.
The lady who disliked the name of me
chanic is now the wife of a miserable fool
a regular vagrant about grogshops;
and she, soft, verdant, silly, miserable
girl is obliged to take in ashing in order
to support hersf If and children.
You dislike the name of mechanic, eh!
You, whose brothers are but well dressed
loafers ? We pity any girl who has so
little brains, who is so verdent, so soft, as
to think less of a young man for being a
mechanic one of God's noblemen the
most dignified and hpnarabla personage
of heaven's creatures. Beware younjj la
dy how you treat young men who work
for a living, for you may one day be a me
nial to one of them yourself.

Thousands have bitterly regretted their
f illy, who have turned their backs to hoa
esty. A few years have taught thera a
The lied nlvcr of Life.
Physically, the human organism is an
aggregation of solids and liquids which
are continually changing into each other,
tho solid melting into the liquid, the liquid
congealing into the solid whilst both
stand so related to the air, which is the
breath of life, that they are continually
vaporising into gases, and gasos are con
tinually liquefying and soldifying into them.
When Hamlet exclaimed
" Oh I that this too.too solid flesh would melt,
Thaw, and resolva Its e IX Into a dew,"
he was pi ef erring a request, which was
granted before it was preferred, and
which is every moment receiving fulfill
ment in each of us. Blood is liquefied
muscle, sinew, nerve, brain, and bone.
Bone, brain, nerve, sinew, and muscle,
are soldifiud blood ; and at every moment
flesh is becoming blood, and blood flash.
The current in our veins is at one a riv
er of the water of Life, feeding and sus
taining all that grows along its shores,
and a river of the water of Lethe, quench
ing in oblivion everything that it touchss.
Like the Nilo, or the other great rivers of
the world, it is at the same lime wearing
down hills and building up continents; but
with this difference, that whereas tht
Nile is only destructive among the moun
tains of Abyssinia, and only constructive
in the plains of Egypt, the blood at every
point in its course is simultaneously add
ing and abstracting. Those wondrous
crimson barques, or blood-cells, which
navigate the arteries, are keen traders,
and follow the rue of the African rivers,
where sales are effected only by barter;
but they add to this rule one peculiar to
themselves, which neither civilised nor
savage man cares to follow, namely, that
they give away new goods in exchange
for old. Here the trafiukers on the red
river deposit fresh brain particles, to re-
Clace those which the immaterial spirit
as sacrificed to the expression of ita
thought; for Jeremy Taylor taught a
f treat physical truth, when he declared
ong ago, that " whilst we think ft thought
we die." The eloquent preacher saw
death near as at every moment, and near
er at each than at' the moment before
but death is in us at every moment, and
it is not merely whilst, but btcaust we
think a thought, we dio. Alas! that we
cannot be content with such innocent self
slaughter,' which the river of life in our
veins forgives into resurrection in every
case, as fast as it ripples along. It can
nut help us, if we overthink ourselves,
and die before our time, but during life
its mariners.deal in all vital wares. As
fast as the b'acksmith wastes his muscles
by each blow, they barter, against the
spent cordage of his arm, new flesh-par
tides to make it strong as before ; they
restcre it to its integrity the exhausted
auditory nerve of the musician, give the
painter a new retina, and the singer a
new tongue. Wherever, in a word, the
million lamps of life, which keep up its
flame at every point of the body, have
burned to the socket, they are replaced
by freshly trimmed ones ; nor is it here
as with the barter of Aladdin's lamp.
The new lamp is, in this case, the magic
one; the Genie has departed from tho
old. Edinburgh Essays.
"ffhere They Learn It.
" I don't see where my children learn
such tilings," is one of the most common
