One thing at least the people of the

of;, the Territory. ' We think Morton is
rissonally. qualified to discharge the du

nature,' being not beyond those of an or

' Pioneers of Thought.
In every age of the world, we have
had adventurers in the far off regions of
thought. ' Such hare always discovered
the new shoros of truth, penetrated far in
to the" interbr, and unfolded its beauty
When truth is thus divested of error, and
held up in an attractive form, oihsr are
eager to embrace it; soon they are in
power or reir-propagation. its power,
however, is mighty, when touched by the
ever of intelligence. Like precious
gold-sands, it has to bo searched after;
sometimes patiently and with much toil.
I has to bo separated and cleansed from
the rubbish of error, moulded, polished,
and sent ( forth for use. While g 'ing
forth; on its' tniasion, it exerts an' untold
influence upon countless millions of those
who embrace it. While then the gold of
truth has no self-demonstrating power, its
Jevelopment is attributable to tho-e""7io-
neers who are ever ready to act, and w ill
ing to wait.
Thre is a striking similarity between
the mines of California, and those of
uth. Only a few have the courage or
the pat;ence to sacrifice home with its
friends and brook the tide of prejudice
and persecution, and emfark as pioneers
into regions unknown, in ordtr to benefit
the race. The truth is, so many have
been tacrificed upon the universal alter of
superstitious prejudice and bigotry, that
timid souls quail before it. It requires a
fortitude worthy a lover ef truth, to thun
der ar athamas against such maniclcs of
The pioneers of new countries receive
the gratitude of no one their hardships
and, privutious are scarcely noticed by
those that afterwards receive the fruits of
their toil. So with the pioneer of thought.
The poor bigoted laggards, who mke the
term humbug, the scape goat for their
own ignorance, sneers at ihem and pro
nounce them mad-men and fools. Thou
sands had seen the apple fall long before
Newton, but it was left for this pioneer,
to discover the great truth, that gravita
tion was the mighty baud of the universe.
This idea was far in advance of his co
temporaries, hence it drew down upon
him their contempt, and he win denouhced
as a visionary enthusiast. So of Frank
lin and Fulton. They delved into regions
unknown to those about them, and thared
the same fate. Beecher, rarker and a
;iost of others, of our own day, who are
far in advance of others, in scientific liu
manitarian and theologic truth, are de
nounced by mental pigmies, who glory in
their own ignorance, as skeptics, infidels,
and heretics. Such terms are usually the
watchwords of bigots. Men of the fu
lure, who are living in the present, may
not now be appreciated ; but ofter gener
ations will rise up to call them blessed.
It is impossible to point out any new de
velopment of truth that did not emanate

From the nature of the case they could
not be ! otherwise. A man who never
sees, investigates, or practices truth, but
is all enveloped in the mures of error, is
a. verv week, tiaiid, sneakish sort of a
man. - His eyes are never in the eyes of
others, but continually looking downward,
while the blush often covers his sheepish
looking face. When a man has perme

walks forth in the majesty of his conscious

there were no men, because they hited

there were upon this planet, no thinking

soon be smothered, and the dark arcs
