Man Is naturally slothful. W are it not that be is compound to wage a constant battle to ward off hncger and cold, be would soon re. lapse into ignorance aad barbarism. Tbe more pressing bis necessities, the fiercer his conflict with tbe opposing forces of nature; a fight in which bis body is strengthened and his intellect tbarffned. Thus, in the tropics, where nature is ibe ally ol tbe human race, and man can *11 h?lst without exertion, and needs bat littie clothing, ne is coon stripped of all physical energy and mental activity. In tbe temperate zone, be must work for a living, or depeud upon others. Labor is hH normal conoil ion Two classes only would seem to be exempt?tho^e who are rich enough to hare others work for them, and those who are pbTMcally unable 10 labor. But tbe rich man is really tot an exception to the gen. eral rule. His exertions to keep what be has, aiid increase his store, keep him often more actively aud anxiously employed than the poor mau, who is compelled to toil daily for food lor bimtelf and tamlly. As to those who are able but unwilling to labor, they should not be allowed to prey upon tbeir indu> nou> neighbors, or evade tbe Divine command, which Is Imperative, and makes work a moral duty. -Six days sbalt thou labor.'' God commands us to labor six days in tbe week just a- much as He comtnaad* us to cease laboring on tbe seventh. Those who discourse on Sabbath bn akicg, often overlook tbe other clause of tbe commandment, bot both go together; and he only can properly appreciate tbe Sabbath rest who has devoted the preceding six days to labor. Tfcee* remarks ba%e been soggestsd by the tate of affairs developed in this country, as Tecorded In tbe dally papers. Thas, while a cry comes frem tbe city press, particularly in the North and Kast, that tbe labor market is overcrowded, and men and women are almost perishing far want of food, our Western and Southern exchanges teem with appeals for emigrants to settle in tbeir respective sections, aad complain of a scarcity of laborers. Forests are to be cleared, farms to be cultivated, mines to be worked, and factories established. Men now a arving in the cities May, in a few years, by close application, by unremitting industry. soon attain in the country respectable and independent positions. These facts should be widely circulated, as a matter in which the wboie country is vitally interested. Young men particalarly should be appealed to, to seek new fields of employment. Many of them now falling into evil habits in our over-crowded cit es, wbich will lead them to the jail or poor.house, might, before middle attaia wealth and distinction in some new community, where competition is not soactivt and unrelenting. All they want?many of them?Is a chance to succeed, and this chance denied them at borne, they will find in the new settlements In the West, now being opened up to trade and commerce, and in tbe South, where immense natural re'oaree- are only awaiting the application of skilled and intelligent labor to make tbe Soothers States the rivals of their prosperous neighbors in the North and West. A New Test Oath. Editor Star: It Is generally fell among lsyal mea that there should be some evidence equired of those who participated ia tbe rebel, len, that tbelr hearts art weir loyal to tbe Union, as a qualification to vote and bold office, even under Sta-e authority. If a man still desires the establishment of the "Sombera Goafederacy" be caaaot claim to be a good citisen of tbe United Stares, aor, If be is fraak and bouest, can be complain that he is disiraachissd. Oa tbe other hand, if hie heart is aow right; if be repudiates tba heresies of sesession aad rebelWon, and desires tbe perpetuation and supremacy of tbe Union, there Is no reason of State why he sbonld bo ezelsded from the polls. It is eery desirable to aafte all good and true mea of tbe South in support of the Gorernmeat. The "Iron Clad" test oath, it is well understood, would exclnde nearly everybody; aad tbe substitutes that bare been suggested by the authors of tbe Norcb Carolina aud Loaisiana bills that have been read or adopted la the House of .Representatives, would exelade three-fourths of ths white popalatioa, at least, area in tboee Stater: while la other States those oaths would bar out from ninetenths to mnsteen-twentieths of tbe whites. Tbi? is certaiaJy aot desirsbls. They would at ih* same time exelade thonsaads of the most intelligent negroes, who, we are assured, prrtemdr.d to tool great enthusiasm ia tbe rebel cause. Tbeir sympathy with a caase which bad for la object tbe perpetuation of their slarery, was doabtless, in the majority of cases, affected, bat, aadsr tbs Louisiana bill W,H be called ap?a to prove by competent loyal wuaessee, that they were lying duriaft tbe whole foar years that they were throwing up their caps, with tbssr shovels of earth, for tbe CoaCederacy. la lien of such oaths, tbe following his been Ef**ted, which seems to cortr ibe whole ground, and to gire all tbe safeguards to the Gevsrament that caa be dsrired from test oaths: . lilA ? ' d? ?'?mn?y swesr(or affirm) that I earnestly desire the restoratioa of all the southern States te tbelr proper relations ae members of tbe United States; that 1 am ia faror of a Ualoa of all the States unfler tbe Constitution as n aow extern: aad that I am aot ia favor of a southern confederacy, aad would opposs its establishment, even It it coald bs effected peacefully and without cost I farther J pport tbe Gonstitntioa of the Ubiied States aad tbe laws made ta par. aaacs thereof, as tbs saprsms law af the land, aaytbiag in tbe csastitaUoa or laws of J?y Surs to tbs contrary notwithstanding. Bo If It is urged that this sath will bs falsely take*, tbs ssms may bs ssid ofaay tern c*tb< evsa tbs iroa-olad.*' Bad noen will take any oath, and other bad men will stand at their rompargators; but even bad men. if thfcy bare occupied prominent positions before tbe public, caaaot afford to b* branded as perjurers by tbeir neighbors?aad this le the class which it is desirable to aeacb. It is of little consequence that a be gars mod rote, though their hearts may aot bs right, as it regards tbs I'aloe, provided tbeir leadership excluded rem oflce. A great merit ol this tsst oath -u, that its V caaaot be disrated by ib*se whom it wia axel ads from the polls, aad from office.

Tbe Republicaa members of tbe Senate beld a caucus at tea o'clock tbia morning to conaider the course to be pursued in regard to tbe reconstruction bills now before them, and after some discussion appointed a committee ot even to ascertain if the provisions of the military government bill and the Louisiana provisional government hill can be embodied in a bill applicable to all the Southern States. It Is understood that if the committee are able to report such bill an effort will be made to pass it to-night. Sbonld the committee not report a bill of the nature deocribed. the Republican side propose to force action to-nigh1 upon the Stevens' bill now before them, and in all probability the secaion of to-day will be continued through the night. suit again?t the secretary of the treasury.
