Tlie devil has a wonderful penchant for re
buking sin. Eyes which are full of beams haf e
an unaccountable clearness of vision in detecting
motes in others' eyes. Some people are brought
into the world to accomplish a marvellous mis
Vion, and that mission is to ferret out oliliquittes
fn others. Of course it is not expected that
these apostles haveany busiiiPE5 with them
selves; their mission is otherwise and does not
admit of time to scrutinize their own positioji.
What profit is it thai they should stop to con
sider peccadillccE, when the enormities of their
neighbors loom up like mountains? - i
So goes it the world over. Everybody minds
'everybody's business, but everybody neglects
his own. What sort of a world would0 this; be
if we were without each other to feed upon?
Men have eyes and ears for some purpose, ail'ji
what else could they find fo them to do, if nolt
to sec and hear each dthefs failings! dcreiijj

have tongues which must stand Uselessly idle, i"
not employed in giving to siiell delinquencies.
So it is with man. I'he obliquities of in

versational interest. Human error is the current
coin of intercourse, and too often the coin comes
from the mint of the miner's brain. I

this gentleman since the utter defeat of IVIr

tiie annihilation of all his prospects and

sell the principles df his party for the support
of abolitionists. , i'

vt.Iue of the exports from 1852-3. The Amer
icin crisis of 1854 caused a reaction, which the

iiave removed. The stocks in the States are
known to be small, bvt ndtwithstanding this
fact, the orders have been on a scale much bc-
This state of things has
ruled in Staffordshire as well as jn these coun-
lies, and the important question of a reduction
in prices will force itself upon theattibn of iron
masters at i the ensuing quarterly Meetings;
While bar iron coutiniles at J30 per ton the
iron makers iu the United States became for
midable competitors with the English manu
facturer; and if the price of the of iron were
reduced td JdS per ton which will, i all proba
bility be the case at the next meeting the
American demand would to a great extejit be
regained. Indeed we have heard it. contended
that the price should be reduced to 1 per ton.
It is impossible for iron masters at the present
price of labor and materia! to make irou remu
neratively at less than 9 per" ton: It follows,
therefore, that whatever the amount of the re
duction in price, a corresponding decline will
be made iu the wages of the men a step very
undesirable during the present high prices of
The Southern Convention.
The great drawback to any- possible useful
ness in Southern Cbnventious arises from the
fact that the delegates are theorists. Many of
them know very well what the South really
needs to promote her prosperity, but instead, of
setting to work with a will to provide a means
of counter-acting these deficieuces, they waste
their time iu wordy elbqu'eucc, and resolve and
re-solve, and finally adjonrn.
In the time it takes the South to discuss the
benefits which would accrue from a line of ocean
steamers, the North woul.d build half a dozen
vessels, and before the South had finished talk
ing of a Railway to the Pacific, the Yankees
would be running cars across the Rocky moun
tains. Baltimore lUd.' Pacriot.
This is the truth in a nutshell cracked by a
Southern Journalist. This Southern Conven
tiotuvas verbose, pretentious and slightly arro
gant; but it lacked that practicability without
which capital is barren and enterprise hopeless.
We should like to see aline of Southern
steamers, a Tehuautepec in ait routed and a
Southern railroad to tbe Pacific; but such will
never be accomplished by talkative Conventions
and strings of resolutions. Nothing but jirivate
enterprise based on individual profit, wilY tle
