Sin i ALisM. W e need hardly remind the Star s reader* that many of its column* have been devoted to the work of exposing the fallacy of the reasoning of pseado Northern philosophy, which holds thai the existence of African sla very in a community necessarily depresses white labor in its midst. On the contrary, we hav? contended that the effect of its presence is to better the condition of the white man en gaged in callings requiring the labor of his hands. We hold that the laborer and mechanic at the fontb is far more independent in truth, than at the North. That bis wages are better and bis employment surer; and that such a thing as absolute physical suffering on hia part, from want, through sickness, or an impossibility of finding employment, to the extent of driving him upon public charity for relief, is utterly unknown, if he be honest, sober, and indus trious, while at the North, we are sorry to say. such occurrences are by no means untrequent. Wo hold further, that the laboring white man at tho South is, emphatically, his own master in all his relations in life; as independent in hia spirit, character and position in society, as the owner of a hundred slaves. There, he is not the slave, as at the NoTth. of associated capital, to whose behests he muat bow implicitly, whether they direct him to conform his manner*, his re ligion, bis habit*, or hia politics to tho views of propriety entertained by the owners of u the mill in which be labors. He works fewer hours at the South, receives more pay per hour, aud. if he be prudent, lives more cctnfortablv for less money tban at the North In fact, he is not only a sovereign in the eyes of the law, but an independent free-man in all his relations to society?as he is not at the North. Our friend, George Fitjhugh. Esq . of Vir ginia, who looks philosophically into all such questions, has in more than one work powerful ly exposed the tendency of society at the North?of what they term '? progress" there to the concentration of all political and social power and influence in the hands of associated capital, at the expense of labor; showing at the earne time that the true interests of the latter (labor) are more scrupulously conserred in the bosom of slaveholding communities. His pub lications to that end contend that in non-slave holding communities the tendency of the times La to increase the slavery of labor to capital. That, instead of bettering the actual condition of labor in its midst, the so-called 44 progress " ol the age haa increased its dependence and steeled the hearts of its lords against its neces sities and right*. Being to some extent a be liever in the souiidne.se of his conclusions, we are glad to have an opportunity of aiding him in bringing his views before the public; and and therefore spread before the Star's readers to-day the following letter from hita, and the eloquent letter from the pen of Horace Greeley upon which it treats : w j.

Br the iaw of society all but the possessors of title-deedi exist here only by the purchased permission of the land owning cla*s. and were Intruders and trespas ers on the soil of their nativity withoat thaTpermiseion. By law. the landless have no inherent right to stand on a single square foot of the State of New ^ ork except in the highways. The only solid ground on which this surrender of the original property of the whole to a minor Krtlon can Tie justified Is that of pvblic good? e good, not of a part, but of a whole The peo ple of a past generation, through their rulers claimed and exercised the right of divesting, not themselves merely, but the majority of all future generations, of their original and inherent right to possess and cultivate any unimproved portion of the soil of our State for their own sustenance and benefit. To render this assumption of power valid to the fearful extent to widen it was etfr cised, it is essential that it 1* demonstrated that the good of the whole was promoted by such ex ercise. Is this rationally demonstrable now? Can the widow, whose children pine and shiver in some bleak, miserable garret, on the fifteen or twenty cents, which Is all she can earn by unremitted toil.be made to realize that she and her babes I are benefitted by or in consequence of the grant : inff to ? Parl the exclusive right to use the earth and enjoy its fruits ? Can the poor man, who, day after day. paces the streets of a city in search of any employment at any mice, (as thousands are now doing here.) be made to realize it on his part ? Are there not thousands on thousands?natives of i our State who uever willfully violated her laws j who are to-day far worse off than they would | have been if Nature's rule of allowing no man to appropriate to himself any more of the earth than I he can cultivate aud improve had been recog : mzed and respected by society ? These quest ions admit of but one answer And one inevitable ? consequence of the prevailing system is that as j population increases and arts are perfected,'the j income of the wealthy owner of land increases while the recompense of the hired or leasehold cultivator is steadily diminishing. The labor of | tireat Britain is twice as effective now as it was a century ago, but the laborer is worse paid. fed. and lodged than he then was. while the iivomes of the landlord class have been enormously in creased. The same fundamental causes exist here, and tend to the same results. They have been modified, thus far, by the existence, within or near our State, of large tracts of unimproved land, which the owners were anxious to improve or dispose of on almost any terms. These are growing scarcer and more remote ; thev form no part of the system we are considering, but some thing which exists in opposition to it, which modifies it. but is absolutely sure to be ultimately absorl>ed and conquered by it. The notorious fact that they do serve to mitigate the exactions to which the'landless mass, even in our long and densely-settled towns and cities, are subject, I serves to show that the condition of the great mass must inevitably be far worse than at pres ent when the natural consummation of land-sell ing is reached, and all the soil of the Union has ; become the property of a minor part of the peo ple of the Union. The past can not be recalled. What has been . rightfully (however mistakenly) done by the au ! thorized agents of the State or Nation, can only be retracted upon urgent public neressity, and [ upon due satisfastion to all whose private'rights I are therebv invaded. But those who have been divested of an important, a vital uatural right, are also entitled to compensation. The right to labor, secured to them in the creation of the earth, taken away in the granting of the soil to a minor portion of them, must be restored. Labor, essential to all, is the inexorable condition of the honest, independent subsistence of the poor. It must be fully guaranteed to all, so that each may know that he can n?*ver starve nor he forced to beg while able and willing to work. Onr public provision for pauperism is but a halting and wretched substirute for this Society exercises no paternal guardian?hip over the poor man until he has surrendered to despair, lie may spend a whole year and his little all in vainly seeking employment, and all this time society does no thing, cares nothing for him ; but when his last dollar is exhausted, and his capacities very prob ably prostrated by the intoxicating draughts to which he is driven to escape the horrors of reflec tion. thtn he becomes a subject of public cha-ity, and is often maintained In idleness for the rest of his days at a cost of thousands, when a few dol lars' worth of foresight and timely aid might have preserved him from this fate, and in a posi tion of independent usefulness for his whole af ter-life. But the right to labor?that is, to constant em ployment with a just and full reconijwnsx?can not be guaranteed to all without a radical change in our social economy. I, for one. am very will ing. nay. most anxious, to do my full share to ward securing to every man. woman and child, full employment and a just recompense for all time to come. I feel sure this can be accom plished But I can not. as the world goes, give employment at any time to all who ask it of me, nor the huadruth part of them. '? Work, wo k : give us something to do!?any thing that will secure us honest broad," is at this moment the prayer of not less than thirty thousand human oeiiigs within sound of our City Hall bell. Thev wou!d gladly I* producers of wealth, vet remain from week to week mere consumers of bread which somebody has to earn. Here is an enor mous waste and loss. We must devise a remedy. It is the duty, and not less the puipable interest of the wealthy, the thrifty, the tax-paying, to do so. The remedy, I propose to show, is found in Association. II. (j. Thk Comet toStbiksthk Kabth !vixt Jim, A writer on this subject in the St. Louis Republi caw says: 1. There are astronomical calculations of theor bit of the coming comet that warrant the predic tion that it wilLlnuch the earth. 2. Science can calculate the orbit of this eccen tric comet, no matter how long its period, and I predict, unhesitatingly, that the comet now ap proaching will come in contact with the earth on the morning of the 16th of June, about 2U minutes after 10 o'clock, and the point of contact will be in the vicinity of a place called Vide I'oche or Carondelet. 3. The nucleus of this comet is very large, and composed of the blsulphuretted carbonate of the protoxide of manganese. The tail is chlorine, and although you cannot see stars through It, they will probably W seen by many individuals at the time of the collision. So says the St. Louis man We prefer the speculations of the Immortal 44 Doesticks,'' set fo. th In the New Orleans Picayune. He concurs in the belief of a collision, and suggests that it be turned to good account, by sending a deputation to the comet, and etfecting a compromise on be half of the useful portion of the earth, and induce the visitor to confine his attention to certain spe cified parts of it. For instance, any little arrange ment by which the State of New Jersey could l>e knocked completely out of the Universe, would a blessing aud a b>on. A kindness of this sort would be appreciated by all mankind, and, al though the Jers?*ymen themselves would undoubt edly ?>bjeet to this, as they do to all other meaa ure* for the public welfare, the comet would, of course, fulfill his contract and de his duty nobly, without heeding their illiberal opposition. The vacant space could be filled in and [>eop|rd anew, or flooded with water and used for a quarantine ground. | Chief Justice Shawano Reyes Choatb.? The Boston Herald tells the following anec- ] dotes : Mr. Choate was arguing a case before a full bench of the Supreme Court of Massachn setts, when he. wishing to compliment Judge Shaw, , exclaimed? "When I look upon the venerable Chief Jus tice, | am like the Hindoo liefore his idol?/ know that he is wg/y, hut 1 fttl that he is very rr#?r.'? . That created a slight laugh, but the next one ' J*** more telling. >fr. choate, before he row to his present eminent position, wa? in the habit pf getting snubbed when he flew too high, and It galled his Impatient spirit. On one of these oc casions, after Judge Shaw had interrupted him with much severity and decision, Mr. Choate turned suddenly to a b other member of the bar, who was sitting near him; and said : i *? Our venerable Chief is certainly a very amia ble man. and a very handsome man, but he does not know lair That did not cause Judge Stiaw to quake near as much as when he was told that Woroesler w is aliottt to publish a dictionary containing ten thou sand more words than any other Dictionary In the 1 English language * " Heavens !?' cried Jnd;e Shaw, with visible I alarm. ?'pray don't let Choate get hold of it ?^-During a gale at Toledo, Ohio, last week, Thursday, the wind blew ti?e channel of the i Maunee river dry at that point. The water was [ nine feet deep.
