llihich should lead that movement, if not New Eng- land? WVho should lead the leaders, but the Young American? The people, and the World, are now suffering from the want of religion and honor in its public mind. 1n America, out-of-doors all seems a market; in-doors an air-tight stove of con- ventionalism. Every body who comes into our houses savors of these habits; the men, of the mar- ket ; the women, of the custom. I find no expres- sion in our state papers or legislative debate, in our lyceums or churches, especially in our newspapers, of a high national feeling, no lofty counsels that rightfully stir the blood. I speak of those organs which can be presumed to speak a popular sense. They recommend conventional virtues, whatever will earn and preserve property; always the capi- talist; the college, the church, the hospital, the theatre, the hotel, the road, the ship of the capital- ist, -— whatever goes to secure, adorn, enlarge these is good; what jeopardizes any of these is damna- ble. The opposition papers, so called, are on the same side. They attack the great capitalist, but with the aim to make a capitalist of the poor man. The opposition is against those who have money, from those who wish to have money. But who an- nounces to us in journal, or in pulpit, or in the street, the secret of heroism ?

Man alone Can perform. the impossible.”
