And now, kind reader, il you choose This family to know, A F armer ’ s here I'll introduce— A “ HUNDRED YEARS AGO.” From the New-Orleans Evening Times . T H E INVISIBLE GENTLEMAN. Unseen:.he sitteth at your fire side—r Pursues you closely in your djfiy walks; And, wilh a nice ear, keen eye and acute mind, Observes and solves your every word and act _ From time io time he roughly scribbles these, For Ins memento, and for your comment. The Printer; and thegeneral characteristics of his craft, will he the subject of the present number of these sketches. The Primer—there he stands at his case—his eyes are fixed on liis copy, while his lingers, obe­ dient to his will, collect the letters from their va­ rious boxes, and place them together so as to form words, sentences-i-coinplete articles of news, po­ litics or literature. The musician at Urn piano can hardly compete wilh (he primer in th-a rapidity and precision of liis digilul tnoijon—like the pian­ ist who plays with liis music book and iiv-tnnuent he fore him, the printer sees and comprehends at a glance, lhe ever varying result liis fingers must produce; and does not hesitate a moment to per­ form the necessary action, with the rapidity of lightning. Like notes from the instrument, eveiy letter, every pause, every stop, is called forth, in its proper place, till a complete ensemble is form­ ed which tiie memory can treasure up, and which the mind can conceive and digest. But how dif­ ferent are the final effects produced in these two instances. The musician creates a series of me­ lodious and harmonious sounds, which please the ear for a moment and die away;—the feelings, gay or sad, desponding or enthusiastic, mild or vi­ olent, or excited lur a moment ; but, the charm soon ceases, and naught hut the recollection ol p’.wt pleasure or pain lemuins upon llie mind. But the pi inter’s labor hears au everlasting liuit—lie spte.ads hefere mankind the arcana of knowledge, and woiks M'ith the sages the laboratory of reason —he sends, messengers to every one ofthe hunisn family, lie-invokes all men to behold the beauties of truth, and seeks <o make the mass of mankind oonscious.of those immutable rights wilh which man is iw.'ested,at his birth, by nature anti by na­ ture's Grid. The printer lias been since the fi(- teemli century, tire faithful and most active auxil- iaiy of learning. The day the printer first struck off a sheet front a rough btock of types—from that day we may dale the universal spread of know­ ledge, and :he gradual disfranchisement of mail kind (rom Ihe bonds of ignorance, superstition, and oppression. From thal day has man gradual­ ly advanced to the vcner.il enjoyment office, en­ lightened, and republican institutions,—from that day, royally and its concomitants began lo decay and fair liberty grow in iheir place. I might coniinue to show, in detail, lhe correct­ ness of llie general outline 1 lia\e drawn ; but llie immense benefits which tin; art of priming lias conferred upon mankind have, been described by abler and more eloquent pens than mine. Let me pressnt a single hypothesis : Suppose llr.it the gi eat protectress, and teacher of all arts and sciences— suppose lliat the art of printing had never been discover odf-at what a stage of progiess would v/e now find natural philosophy, astronomy, median ics, navigation, and many ails wliich conduce so effectually lo lhe comfort and preservation ol man­ kind—where would now be (hose liberties we bold so dear ? Yet in the womb of fultiry. The discov­ eries of a Newton would have been the trcasiue of an exclusive few. Watt and Fulton would, perhaps, have never learned the fust principle of mechanics—and Franklin might have never read a hook, nor published a single principle tending to ilie independence ofhis country. The ancients of Greece and Rome certainly numheicd some great and wise men ; but beyond the circle in which these learned men moved, how few received a glimpse of science ? how few evei learned to read? and how difficult il waslo obtain instruction or books? Now, through llie agency of piloting, our means of acquiring knowledge i* unlimited, and its dissemination is universal. The consequence is, that a grerter number labor to un­ ravel and make useful the secrets of natuie ; and the progress .of mankind towards perfection is a thousand limes more rapid. The pi inter, as an individual,comes directly un­ der tli.e constant influence of the instructive and libci.d art lie professes. The printer leads mor-* and possesses more varied and general informa­ tion, tJiaw die theologian, lawyer, or avowed phi­ losopher. ll is the printer’s trade to read con­ stantly day alter day—during' liis whole life—lie earns his daily bread by reading; aye, and by reading slowly and carefully, for he must follow and pul die woiks we read into type letter by let­ ter— he must dwell awhile upon every sentence. Does die meichant know die prices of cotton and other goods in .distant commies ?—the intelligence is perused hy a pijuter bel'ote a inert haul loucln s ii. Does the politician discuss die affairs of na­ tions ?—he owes liis knowledge io die pr inter who is always .ahead ol him in point of information.— Does the physician study the weik of soma pro­ found Esi ulapius ?—let him look at the title page, and he will see that he owes the work to a prrntei who has tend it over and over lo see that i.ot a It lier is wanting ; not a comma out ol place. 'I he same limy b« said of the lawyer, die minister, and lhe sc it nlific mechanic, 'lhe pi itiler stands ni the door ol all their learning and holds llio kejs widen open it. The printer is a great traveller. T here are few printers in the United States who have not visited every state in the Union. They are sure of finding a printing office in every village, and consequently do not hesitate to travel where ever iheir fancy may lead them, sure of finding in their brother typographers, friends ready lo assist th^m, give them work, or obtain a situation for them. The printer is consequently throughly acquainted w ith liis country in general and in detail; none can know it better or speak of it more correctly. Sometimes he crosses the Atlantic, and while he prints, geographies and books o f travel, r.-» 4 i t s Occasion to view with liis own eyev p fp , 01 vhe oid and new world. ,Yt*r L The 1nj •, Pr,nter is always a good grammarian nmdn.-T- 0<1U6ntly linPPcns thal turn who. productions :, , n _i . a r e e s t e e m e d by t h e p u l , lie.

N o trade, class or profession, excep t tin of law and physic, has furnished n greater p r o ­ portion of learned and distinguished persons than the printer’s craft. From the day of' Franklin to the present time, our legislative halls, our places of honor have been ornamenfe by the talented printers. The Bar is oi’ten indebted to the printing office for some of its ablest members—in this city we have living and prominent examples ofthe fact. The printers wherever they can unite a sufficient force, generally form themselves i n ­ to a society for the mutual protection, and I »*.- the purpose ol assisting each other in c a .-a .- of need. These societies fix the rates of wa­ ges, the hour of work, and provide for the sii*!. and unfortunate. They hind themselves by- the strictest and most honorable rules lo nre serve the dignity, of their art, and io defend each other against the injustice of grasjut ' employers. If a printer should dishonor Lit trade, or work under wages, he is imnu’di.i*o- ly stigmatized and disowned. It is v.-rv r am that a printer can be induced to dfeho.j.jr tb-.. pledges he lias given to his fellow vm-kmm. The printer is essentially a den, u r.-.t — is to say, opposed to the arvstoeraey of rife.. ■ and though so tar above llie gen- r oil y oi ; - tizansin knowledge and talent, yctlm is pme i of being called mechanic —*and lie frcque-r:, v boa*ts t h a t his s u b s is t e n c e i s e a rned by the ciceat of his brow. ye proud nabobs v, ho ro.J : i your carriages, and who would disdain {.. touch the hard hand of a mechanic, learn there are mechanics who are, hy far, vor.i superiors in every tiling which elevates m a n ­ kind above the brute. I know many' gradu­ ates of colleges who might be made to hlu^l for their ignorance by the mechanics th w seem to despise. But {lie boast o f these pruuu aristocrats must gradually fall m-neatu whs power of the press; and it is probable that, when the laboring classes of Europe and A- merica vvill claim their true rank in society, and will call for the enjoyment of more equal rights, their spokernan will be a Printer. LA B O R I N G CLASS IN EUROPE. The following interesting article from the North American Review for October, gives ;> glowing description of the condition ot the la­ boring classes in Europp in regard to the rate of wages, the burden of taxation, the mean,; of subsistence, the faciliti ?s of cilucalion, cm! the share, i f any', which fh'.j’* <•!> <*t, havi* m the government. Jt ought lo inspire every citizen of this free ami Jmppy R e p u b l i c to guard with c onstant vigilance against any e n ­ croachments on the inst.tutiouH whir*h guar­ antee to us the blessing.! wliich cur brethren beyond the seas are destitute of. In Noricay the ordinary food of Ihe peasant­ ry is bread\ and gruel, both prepared of oat meal, with an occasional mixture of dried fi.-h. Meat is a luxury' which they' raroh, enjoy. In Sweden the . ••* •:' o f the pear.amrv is pre scribed by law. Ti. \ r food consists m’ hard bread, dried fish, and gnu ! without meat. In Dtnmnrk the peasantry are hliil !.. lit n, bondage, and arc Imnght and sold toget.h'.; with the land on wliich tl ey labor. Iti Russia the bomi.ug _.* ol the p'Mstnt) y even more complete than it is in iVrwnstrk.— The nobles own all the land m the empire, and the peasantry who reside uj'on it uro transferred with the estate. A great majority have only cottages, on*, portion of winch is occupied hy tho ll’iuily, while the other is appropriated to donm.-.iH. animals. Few, if any, have beds—Imt deep upon bare boards, or upon parts of the im­ mense stoves by vvliich their house is warm V. Their food consists o f Ll.ick bread, c-a!.t,itgc-, and other vegetables, without the addition ui any butter. in Poland the nobles are the proprietor- of the land and the peasants are slaves. A ree./m traveller say.*;, ‘ 1 have travelled in every di­ rection and never saw a vvheaten loaf tfi the eastward ofth e Rhine, in any part of _\’<u*th- ■em Germany', I ’oland or D e n m a r k . The c o m ­ m o n food of the peasantry of Roland, Mho working men,’ is cabbage and potatoes, smiie- times, but not generally, peak, black bread and soup, or rather gruel, without the addi tion of butter nr meat. Iu Austria the nobles are the proprietors nt the land, and tlm peasants are compelled t>. g every day ex- Tito cultivators of the soil a n in a state of bondage. In Hungary their state is, if possible, still worse. The nobles own the land, Go rmt, work, and pay no taxes. 'I he laboring classes are obliged to repair all the highways and bridges, are liable at any time to have soldier.-) quartered upon them, and are compelled lo pay' one lentil of the produce of their labor lu the Ciiurch, and one ninth to the lord whoso land they occupy. Of the people of France, seven and a hall millions do not eat wheat or vvheaten breath They live upon barley, rye, buckwheat, dies- nuts, and a few potatoes. Tlte common wages of a hired laborer in France, Jjp37 51) for a man, aud ft 18 75 for a woman annually. The taxes upon them arc equal to one-fifth of its nett products. In 1671, there were 7tH),(J(K) houses in Ire­ land. O f these, 113,000 were occupied by paupers—and more than r>OU, 0 U 0 had no hearth. The average wages of a laborer L lrotn nine and a half to eleven cents a day. Among tlm laboring classes of lhe industri­ ous Scotch, meat, except on Sundays, is rare­ ly used. In England the price of labor varies; the Nottingham stock weavers, as slated hy thorn in a public address, after working from four­ teen to sixteen hours a day, only earned 1 rum four lo five shillings a week, and were oblig­ ed to subsist on bread and water, or potatoes and salt. w o r k fo r t l m i r m a s t e r s d u r i n i c e p t S u n d a y . John Holmes is always f'uil of ivitticims. A. petition of a female for a divorce from her hus­ band, was offered in the Maine legislature a short time since. A motion was made to r e ­ fer it to the judiciary committee. John Holmes thought, as tho foul t r e a t ment of the petition­ er arose from intemperance on the part of llm husband, that it ought to he referred to the committee on internal improvements. As tin judiciary committee, however, was compm-ed mostly of y o u n g men, he had no objeclions lo the petition going to that committee—presum­ ing their gallantry would lead them lo do ‘ tm-j handsome t h i n g ’ by the lair petitioner. It is said that the daughter of Aristotle, orj being asked what was Die iiio.it beautilul cu • lour, answered: — 1 That ol modesty. Love, like the cold bath, is never negative, it seldom leaves us where it finds us: if one i we plunge into it, it will either heighfer e*“ < virtues, or inflame our vices.
