THOUGHTS ON SOCIETY.
From Moral Vinos, of 'Commerce, Society, and Politics;
' by Rev. Oreille Dewey.
"There is a certain distinction then; there
is a charmed circle, within which the social exclusiou-
ist entrenches himself, and that circle is surrounded rs
with an electric chain, which sends quick aud thrilling
sensibility through ercry part. But (ouch an individ-
ual in that society but mention his name, and the man
or the woman we are speaking of feels it instantly; at-
tetitIortis"on the alert; the ear is .open to every
word; there Is tbe utmost desire to know, or to
seem to know, the individual in quesl'un; there is
.iUMiUt'nTi , iyf 'mIU nlmnt him, n- lively-inltrrP " nil
that concerns him. I3 he sick, or is he well is
he in this place, or is he in that place? The most ordi
nary circumstances rise to great importance, Iho mo-
ment they arc connected with hiin. B it now, do you
speak of a person out of that circle be it of fashion,
or birth, or wealth, or talent, or be it a circle compos-
ed of some of all of these; and suddenly the social ox-
clusionist has passed t'irough a total metamorphosis.
He says not a tconJ, perhaps: he settles the matter
'more briefly, and at less expense. His manner sjieaks."
Thercis an absolute, an unspeakable indifference. He
knows nothing about persons of that class, who, alas,
have nothing In this world to make them interesting,
but their mind and Heart. And if you speik of such an
one, heopens his eyes upn you, as if he scarcely com-
prehended what part of the creation you are talking
about. And when he is made, at length, to recognize a
thing so unimportant, as the concerns of a fellow being
held to be inferior, you find thai he is included with a-
multitude of others, under the summary phrase of
those people,' or ' that sort' of people;' and with such,
you would find that Ije'scarcely more ucknowlelged the
tib-ofa common nature, than with the actual inferior
beings of the animal creation.
"This feeling-of selfish and pro'id exclusion is con-
fined to no one class. I wish we 'could say, tnat it is
limited to anv one grade of character. I wish we cojld
say, lhat'itdid nut infect the mind3 of many persons,
otherwise, of great merit and worth. I wish we could
say, th'at-any one is exempt from it. Living, growing
up,-as we all have been, in a selfish world, educated,
more or less, by worldly maxims, we have none of us,
perhaps, felt as we ought," the sacred claim of human na-
ture let our minds thrill' to its touch, as to an electric
chain felt ourselves bound, with the binds of holy hu-
man sympathy felt that all human thought, desire,
want, weakness, hope, joy and grief, were our own
ours to commune with and to" partake- of. Few have
felt this; for it is always the attribute of the holiest phi-
lanthropy, or of the loftiest genim. Of the Joftie3t ge-
nius, I repeat; for I venture to say, lhatall such geni-u2ras'-ever
been distinguished for its earnest sympathy
andhjacredmterest in all human feeling. And why
uouia we not teel it. The very dog, thai goes and lies
down a:id dies upon the grave of his mister, will almost
draw a tear Irom us, so near doss he approach to human
affection. And when the war-horse that his carried
his rider through many battles, bows his neck, and
thrills through his whole frame, at the approach and
touch of that master's hand, we feel something more
than respect towards the noble animal. Oh! sacred
humanity ! how art thou dishonored by thy children,
when the merest appendage of thy condition, the mere
jrtite conjparjiortof thy fortunes, is more regarded than
" What a picture does humansociety present to us I
If I were to represent the world in vision, I should say
that I see it, not as that interchange of hill and dale
which now spreads around me, but as one vast moun-
tain.; and al the. multitude that cover it, are struggling
to rise; and those who, in myrision, seem to lie above,
instead of holding friendly intercourse with those who
are below, are endeavoring, all the while, to look over
them, or building barriers and fences to keep them
down; and every lower grade is using the same treat-
ment towards those who are beneath them, that they
bitterly and scornfully complain of, in those ivho arc
above; all but the topmost circle,, imitators as well as
competitors, injuring as well as injured; and the top-
most circle with n'i more to gain, revelling or sleeping
upon its perilous heights, or dizzy with its elevation
soon falls from its pinnaele of prids,.giving place to others,-ivho

The Farmer. Happiness seems to have fixed her
seat in rural scenes. The spacious hall, the solendid

the mind of man in any degree like the verdant plain,

birds, tho sports of beasts, the azure sky, and the starry
Il is undoubtedly a fact, that in proportion to our po-
pulation, too many leave the occupation .f agriculture
for other employment. If this arises from its being con-
sidered that the employments nf the fanner is not re-

able v, Inch is useful and virtuous. This is an employ-

this I was d oined to hear anl see.

of thum, which I placed close to the wheel. I git up-
on it,'and was enabled to seize and cover with kisses,
one of his hands, which hung down mjistenei with a
cold sweat.' 4
'Spare me! spare.me!' said he with a tremulous roie:
'thy presence adds to my sufferings. I call for death,
and thou art come to retard it. Gertrule! Gertrude!

of the rivulet and thcclapping uf the mill. I fell on my
knees and prayed under the wheel, and c.horted my un-
hiypy husband in resignation.. At last j-ining togeth-
er some pieces of wood, I made a sort of scaffolding, by
which means I could raise myself tip to him, and, lean-
ing over him, free his face from the hairs which the
wind blew over it. I entreat thee! O, I entreat thee!'
repeated he, 'to be gone and leave me If they should
find you here when the day breaks, you know not whu

You cannct tell what additional safferings you may
bring upon me.'
'I will die with thee, ami it is lor this purpose that I
am come! I threw myself on him with extended arm,
and begged of God both his doath and my own. The
day appeared I saw hum in figures moving al a dis-
tance. I was obliged to descend and take away the
p:eces of wood which had enabled me to get upon the
wheel. The guard which had fled nt the sight of rap,
agaiu made his appearence. No doubt this man had
mentioned at Winterthur what he had been; for as sftw
as il was day, there was a great mob of men, women,
and children coining from nil quarters. I recognized
the gaoler wh jm Landenburgh h id persuaded the evi n-
ing before to let him free. Ho did not appear sarpiis-

shaking hi.s he id, and said, "It wis not for ibis purp se

Saturday NiortT. It is good when the week is end-
ed to look back iijviii its business and its toils, and mark
wherein we have failed of our duties or come short of
what we should have done. The close ofrthe week
should be to each one of us as the close of our lives. Ev-
ery thing should be adjusted, with the world and with
our God, as if we were about to leave the one to appear
before the other. The week is, :ndeed,one of theregu-
lor divisions uf life, and when il closes it should not be
wthoutits moral. From the end of ope week to the
end of another, the mind can easily stretch onward,
to the cbse of existence. It can sweep down the stream
of time to the distant period when it will be entirely
beyond human power to regulate human nflairs. Sat-
urday is the time for mural reflection. When for the
mercies of the week we arc thankful, and when our post
months and years come up in succession before us
we see the vanity ot our youthful days, and vexatious
of manhood, and tremble at the approaching winter ol
sgc. t is then we should withdraw from the business
