788. OUR MER/THANTS AND ship-MASTERs

G. R. RUSSELL.

The commerce of our own country is coextensive with the globe. We are thoroughly a mercantile people. We have vexed questions of tariff and free trade; but, whatever are our opinions on them, there can be no one opposed to the just maintenance and protection of what involves the interests of manufacturer and mer. chant, and gives the farmer an inducement to labor beyond necessity, by offering him means to dispose of his surplus. All classes, with us, are connected with commerce, and are, in some way, interested in its welfare. There is gloom over society when the ship stops too long at the wharf, and the prices current manifest depression. Anxiety is not confined to faces on “'change.” There are haggard looks among laboring men wanting work, and the stillness in the shop of the mechanic, denotes the state of trade. The mill wheel groans at half speed; the mule works lazily; the crowded warehouse will not admit another yard, and the stockholder consoles himself for no dividends, by abusing government. But the ship has hauled into the stream, and the sailor heaves cheerily at the anchor. The merchant moves briskly, and looks as though chancery had always been a mythical conception. The hard featured bank smiles grimly, as it loosens its stringent gripe, and the original phrase of “tightness in the money market” is dropped for a season. There is stir and bustle in the street; the sound of the saw and hammer is heard again; manufacturing stock looks up at the brokers' board, and the government is not so very bad, after all. The American merchant is a type of this restless, adventurous, onward going race and people. He sends his merchandise all over the earth; stocks every market; makes wants that he may supply them ; covers the New Zealander with Southern cotton woven in Northern looms; builds blocks of stores in the Sandwich Islands; swaps with the Feejee cannibal; sends the whale ship among the icebergs of the poles, or to wander in solitary seas, till the log-book tells the tedious sameness of years, and boys become men; gives the ice of a northern winter to the torrid zone, piles up Fresh Pond on the banks of the Hoogly, so the sunny savannahs of the dreamy š. makes life tolerable in the bungalow of an Indian jungle. The lakes of New England awake to life by the rivers of the sultry East, and the antipodes of the earth come in contact at this “meeting of the waters.” The white canvas of the American ship glances in every nook of every ocean. Scarcely has the slightest intimation come of some obscure, unknown corner of a remote sea, when the captain is consulting his charts, in full career for the “terra incognita.” The American ship-master is an able coadjutor of the merchant. He is as intelligent in trade as in navigation, and combines all the requisites of seaman and commercial agent, He serves his rough apprenticeship in the forecastle, and enters the cabin door through many a heole. and weary night watch,

His anxieties commence with his pron:ction. Responsibility is upon him. Life, and charac. ter, and fortune, depend on his skill and vigilance. He mingles with men of all nations, gathers information in all climes, maintains the maritime reputation of his country, and shows his modelof naval architecture wherever there is sunshine and salt sea. He has books. and he reads them. He hears strange lan. ages, and he learns them. His hours of eisure are given to cultivation, and prepare him for well-earned ease and respectability in those halcyon days to come, so earnestly looked for, when he shall hear the roaring wind and pelting rain about his rural home, and shall not feel called upon to watch the storm. 789. WHAT commRRCE HAs DoNE.—G. R. Russell. WHAT has Commerce done for the world. that its history should be explored, its philoso. phy illustrated, its claim advanced among the influences which impel civilization. It has enabled man to avail himself of the peculiarities of climate or position, to make that division of labor which tends to equalize society, to distribute the productions of earth, and to teach the benefit of kindly dependence. It unites distant branches of the human family, cultivates the relation between them, encour. ages an interest in each other, and promotes that brotherly feeling, which is the strongest guaranty of permanent friendship. People differing in creed, in language, in dress, in customs, are brought in contact, to find how much there is universal to them all; and to improve their condition, by supplying the wants of one from the abundance of the other. The friendly intercourse, created by commerce, is slowly, but surely, revolutionizing the earth. There was a time when men met only on the field of battle, and there was but one name for stranger and enemy. Now, wherever a ship can float, the various emblems of sovereignty intermingle in harmony, and the sons of commerce, the wide world through, in consulting their own interests, advance the cause of humanity and peace. In looking for the mighty influences that control the progress of the human race, the vision of man ranges within the scope of his own ephemeral existence, and he censures the justice which is steadfastly pursuing its course through the countless ages. We turn away bewildered by the calamities, which extinguish nationality in blood, and give, to the iron hand, fetters forged for the patriot. Let him who desponds for humanity, and mourns for faith misplaced, for hopes betrayed, for expectations unrealized, look back. Has revolution and change done nothing 2 Is there no advance from kingly prerogative, and priestly intolerance; no improvement on feudal tenure ? The end is not yet. Let the downcast be cheered, for the Eternal Right watches over all, and it moves onward, to overcome in its good time. Among the great agencies, by which the wisdom of God works out the problem of human destiny, the importance of Commerce will be acknowledged, whenever its philosophical history shall be written.
