DAILY PRESS. PORTLAN1) - Friday Morning' December 28. 1866. Thr l.a>l of Ihr Hourboua. The Bourbons belong to history. Proverb ially obstinate, narrow and superstitious, they have shrunk away before the advancing light of civilization like ghosts before the glimmet ing light of day. The last of the race now rules in Spain, and many signs betoken a speedy and abrupt termination of her reign.— Queen Isabella is a woman of very limited capacity, gross in her propensities, caprieious, insincere, and a bigot. Her most trusted ad viser was a few years ago, and perhaps now, a nun, Sister Patrociu io by name, a devout per son whose under garments were reputed to possess miraculous healing qualities. A gar ment which she had worn had more virtue than a dozen apothecary's shops; and the Queen, having experienced the benefit to lie derived from the clothing, naturally regarded the wearer as a very suitable person to con sult respecting affairs of state. Sister Patrocinio of course tendered just such advice as the clergy suggested, and the Church profited greatly by her influence.— The Catholic Church is in Spain what it is in Mexico, or in Paraguay, seeking first of all its own interest, its own supremacy, and upholding witlt both hands the civil despotism by which it is in turn supported. The divine right of kings it cheerfully maintaius^o long as the kings maintain the divine right of the Church, and not a moment longer. The ele vation of the people is not one of its objects. Modem civilization is repugnant to its in stincts. In 1861 Spain had but a single rail road connecting Madrid and the ocean. There was no railway communication between Spaiu and Portugal and the road from Madrid to the Pyrenees, connecting Spain with France and the rest of Europe had not been opened. The railway system of the country has been somewhat extended |since that time, but is still very imperfectly developed, The people who inhabit a peninsula thus shut out from the rest of the world have no knowledge of the comfort and refinements which modern civilization brings within reach of all classes. Glass windows arc found only in towns. The peasant still lives in a hut of mud or stone, lighted and aired by the door and by plank w iudows. The floor is of hardened earth, and a bed is an unheard-of luxury; the family sleep upon the floor wrapped in sheepskins.— Tlte agricultural implements, the carts, all things connected with their daily life and labor, are unchanged for centuries. Yet heavy taxes have been wrung from these poor people, to support a magnificent church and an extrava gant court. up tliis stagnation, to introduce modern ideas and give Spain apposition among modem na tions. They declare, like the Mexican Liber als, in favor of religious toleration, the sale of the Church property, a general system of pub lic instruction and a free press. They wrung a constitution from the throne as long ago as 1812,{and.have been struggling ever since to make it operative. The last great revolu tion, in 1854, promised well tor Spain. A Lib era) ministry, headed by Espartero, came in to power and inaugurated such measures as would have restored the country to its former rank. That ministry lasted just two years.— The government became moderately Liber al under O’Donnell, the Absolutists and the Church gaining steadily, uutil unmitigated despotism returned under Narvaez. The whole work ol education has recently been turned over to the priests; all Liberal news papers have been suppressed, and all others are subject to censorship; all local govern ments have been brokeu up by the appoint ment of successors designated at Madrid; all Spain is declared in a stale of siege; arbitrary arrests and banishments continually occur .— Such is the present condition of the country. When the expected revolution comes, as. come it must, it is believed that the Liberals will no longer hope to secure any permanent advantage under the Bourbon trule, but will iusist that Queen Isabella shall make way for a less dangerously stupid successor. I moIIm'ran >11 l.inc. Isothermal lines are imaginary ones that pass through those points, on the surface of the earth, at which the mean annual tempera ture is the same. To most people it is a sub ject of wonder, and to some here in New Eng land is almost a matter of complaint against dame Nature, that these lines deviate, espe cially in our case, so widely from the lines of latitude which encircle the earth. Consider ing that the forces of the sun’s rays are equal on all latitudinal lines, because they fail with the same perpendicularity and obliquity on all like distances from the equator, it has been, and yet is, an unsolved mystery, why the win ter should be longer and the summer shorter in New England, and, indeed, in most parts of the Atlantic States, on the same parallel of lat itude. than they are in Europe and on the Pa cific coast of onr own continent. ,We in Maine, for instance, are in the latitude of the soulh of France, where the tig, and the olive abound, and where what we should call winter is never known; whereas we have a climate that is rigid as that of northern Europe, even ot Nor way and Sweden. England is as far north as Labrador, andjyet grass is green all winter, and cattle need much less shelter or stall feed ing than they require in our northern States. Why is this? Why are toe the unfavored of the earth in regard to the warming rays of an equal sun? These questions cannot find their solution in astronomical causes—that science which is the earliest, most demonstrable, and the foundation of all civilization. Every pound of air in our world, whether it be at the bottom or the top of the atmospheric ocean, contains the same amount of heat, so-called, and the rays of the sun which animate the whole face of nature are of as much power in New England in lat. 43 deg. as in lat. 43 deg. in France or Italy. The mystery, theu, must be explained by other causes. What are they? Hero we enter the regious of conjecture. We must view facts from a different standpoint, if obliged to abandon the field of astronomical laws, in the field of observation alone, we meet with so many conflicting facts, and so many exceptions to every general rule, that our conclusions arc not very reliable. The great amount of frozen seas and lakes in our northern regions are supposed to be the cause of our long and cold winters; but what, pray, makes those northern waters in America freeze so much more than water freezes in the same latitude on the European continent? Is it not the cold weather that causes the ice of those seas and lakes, rather than the ice there which makes the cold weather? Then again, it is said that the mountains of the United States cauSe these differences in climate, as high elevations are always cold (which is not true) and the air which rushes down from them chills that of the valleys be low. But they have as high mountains in the neighborhood ot France and Italy—the Alps, the Pyrenees, &c., and why should not those mountains produce the same effects upon the European climate that results from the ele vated lands of America? These are interesting questions. Who can solve them? The Professor of the Smithsonian Institution at Washington is quite certain that the differ ence between the Isothermal curves, on thu lines of latitude between Europe and Ameri ca, is to be explained by the influence of the Gnlf stream which, passine by England and Norway, is felt even in Siberia, and which modifies the climate wherpver it goes. But it this be so, we should like to bo informed, why this warm tide, which passes still more un cooled by distance, eo near the coasts of Maine aud Nova Scotia, as to be almost within reach of the mainland, does not have the same modi fying effect upon our climate as it is said to have upon that of England, Sweden and Nor way after it reaches those northern latitudes in Europe? One would think that tee should be specially favored by that warm current.— While these isothermal lines are so strongly erratic as between the continents of America | and Euiope, it is a consolation for us to know, that they play, sometimes, equally strange freaks in our own country. It you will iollow our Maine lines of latitude till you reach the valley of the Mississippi, you will find a win ter there, the mean temperature of which is as low as that at l'riuce Edward’s Island in the Gulf of St. Lawrence—some 10 degrees colder than the average of Maine. We may content ourselves, too, that the summers of New England always average as much warmth, say in lat. 42 deg. on the Atlantic, as they do in lat. 32 deg. on the Pacific coast. It is a re markable fact, also, that the mean tempera ture of summer amongst the Rocky Moun tains, in 44 deg. north—the latitude ot Kenne bec—is the same as that ot Florida and the West Indies in latitude 24 deg. Nature has her own laws, which, however inexplicable they may be to us, and however little we could alter them if understood, are no doubt all har monious and right in the great system of things. Honorable Employment, What kind of employment is the most hon orable? Is it to carry a green bag, and talk flippantly on krotty points of law in court? Is it to amplify a yardstick with dexterity ? Is it to wear a cockado as the sign ot successlul of fice-seeking? Is it to sit at a shattered table in tho garret, with a goosequill behind the ear and a fore-finger between the eyebrows, sup porting an author’s fainting head over a blank Sheet of paper? All these employments may be honorable, so far as they are useful to socie ty, and no farther. Do you agree to this? Then you will agree also to this plain rule: that what ever is most useful is the most honorable em ployment. Apply this rule to the skilful, indus trious and honest cultivator of the soil. Who could live but for him? Who produces so much of what is absolutely indispensable to the wants or his fellow men, as he? Is. not his employ ment then, honorable in proportion as his la bors are of service to the world? Let him there fore, be respected accordingly. Next to him is the scientific mechanic who builds our houses and ships and makes our household goods. lie too should be honored. Lawyers who prevent rather than encourage litigation; preachers who labor in word and doctrine to produce “peace on earth and good will towards men,” rather than to excite the sectarian antipathies of their hearers; doctors who seek to prevent diseasei rather than to tamper with it for a fee; traders who sell at fair prices, deceive not their cus tomers and keep true accounts:—these, and in deed all other classes are useful and necessary in society, and should be encouraged and hon ored accordingly; but it is time the notion was done away that farming and handicraft are not respectable. They are, on the whole, more use ful, and therefoi^should be regarded as more honorable. The men who own the soil they till; who can live independently by their own productions, and then supply other classes of citizens with the means of sustenance, arc the true nobility of a Republic. They are the “bones and muscles” which keep the body poli tic together. We respect them. We honor them. Would there were more such, and few er idle, lazy drones, who scorn honest labor, and strut in gay attire, living upon the productive industry of men far better than themselves. Brazil.—Preparations for continuing the war against Lopez and liis Paraguayans arc actively continued in Brazil, though active op erations will not be likely to be resumed before February. The Marquis de Caxias, who is to command the Brazilian forces, has a fine repu tation as a commander, though it is feared that he may have passed the ago for directing oper ations in the field. Meanwhile the Emperor of Brazil has just set free all the negro slaves be longing to his household, and it is hoped that his august example will lead to emancipation throughout the Empire. American sympathy ought not to hesitate between a Brazilian emancipator and a Paraguayan despot. Mr. Greeley’s Opinions.—Mr. Greeley has just sent a letter to the Chicago Republican, in which he denies that he ever proposed “that the rebel States shall be restored to all their former rights, including representation in Con gress, yet allowed to withhold the right of suf frage from their black citizens.” He has been very generally misunderstood then. His letter on “the bases of reconstruction,” written just before bis departure for the West, certainly conveyed that impression to its readers. Mr. Greeley for once failed to say what he meant. The Reaction against tub Robin.—The robin has been for many years a favorite with sentimental people in this country, who have stood between him and gunshot wounds, and encouraged his increase in our orchards, until of late a reaction has begun against him. Cul tivators of the vine denounce him as a greedy robber; orchardists complain that he has alto gether too fine a taste for pears, and a chorus of farmers declare him a monstrous humbug, who spoils half a bushel of cherries for every curculio he swallows. Finally, that eminent philosopher, Josh Billings, speaks of him in these inj urious terms: The red brestid robbing is a burd muchly doted onto by Seminary girls and poits. Gentlemen farmers also encurridge the rob bing becos he swallereth insex when he can’t get sno or anything else to eat. But praetickle farnjersand fruitgrowists be gin to don’t see it. I was onct a gentleman farmist. I am not so gentle as I was. I go in lor real farming, making my pile- of nianoor and raisin things to eat. I usted to listen for the robbing’s lav and his evening carol, but l found out that he singed only to seduce femail robbings, and that where he et five insex lie et quarts of cherries, straw beries, currents, rastberries, and cetrer, and then pitch into the meilerest bartlett pairs. 1 found that my fruit crop agreed too well with Mr. robbingses crop. His wobbling to his femail friends at evening didn’t pay for his gobbling choice fruit all day. And so, my friends, when the swete red brest gets fat on the eggspensive producks of northern gardings and nocks southward to fill unsentimental pot pies, I bid him adoo without [From the New York Weekly Review.] Chambermaids—Against all chambermaids, of whatsoever age or nationality, I launch the curse ol Bachelordom! Because: They always put the pillows at the opposite end ol the bed from the gas burner, so that while you read and smoke before sleeping (as is the ancient and honored custom of bachelors) you have to hold your book aloft, in an uncom fortable position, to keep the light from dazzling your eyes. When they find your pillows removed to the other end of the bed in the morning, they re ceive not the suggestion in a friendly spirit but glorying in their absolute sovereignty, and unpitying your helplessness, they make the bed j ust as it was originally, and gloat in secret over the pang their tyranny will cause you. If they cannot get the light in an inconven ient position any other way, they move the bed. If you put your trunk out six inches from the wall, so that the lid will stay up when you open it, they always shove that trunk back again.— They do it on purpose. If you want the spittoon in a certain spot, where it will be handy, they don’t. And so they move it. They always put your other boots into inac cessible p a.'es. They chiefly enjoy de positing them as far under the bed as the wall will permit. It is because this compels you to get down in an undignified attitude and make wild sweeps for them in the dark with the bootjack, and swear. They always put the match box in some other Slace. They hunt up a new place for it every ay, and put a bottle or other perishable glass thing, where the box stood before. This is to cause you to break that glass thing, groping in the dark, and get yourself into trouble. They are forever and ever moving the furni ture. When you come in, in the night, you calculate on finding the bureau where the ward robe was in the morning. And when you go out in the morning, if you leave the slop-bucket by the door and the rocking chair by the window, when you come in at midnight, or thereabouts, you will fall over that rocking-chair, and you will proceed toward the window and sit down in that slop-tub. This will disgust you. Thev like that. No matter where you put anything, they are not going to let it stay there. They will take it and move it the first chance they get. It is their nature. And besides, it gives them pleas ure to be mean and contrary this way. They would die if they couldn’t be villains. They always save up all the old scraps of printed rubbish you throw on the floor, and stack thorn up carefully on the table and then start the fire with your valuat le manuscripts. If there is any one particular old scrap that you are more down on than any other, and you are gradually wearing your life out trying to get rid of, you may take all the pains you possi ly can in that direction; but it won’t be of any use, because they will always fetch that old scrap back and put it in the same old place again every time. It does them good. And they use up more hair-oil than any six men. If charged with purloining the same, they lie about it. What do they care about a hereafter? Absolutely nothing. Chambermaids are dead to every human in stinct. I have cursed them in behalf of outraged bachelordom. They deserve it. If I can get a bill through the Legislature abolishing cham bermaids, I mean to do it. Mark Twain. San Francisco, Nov. 17,1866. SPECIAL. NOTICES. I E W BOOKS FOR THE HOLIDAYS !
