WOOLEN MANUFACTURES. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Chronicle — 1 July 1847

WOOLEN MANUFACTURES. Haifa century ago, not a pound of fine wool Onto raised in Britain or America, and il is only eighty-three years ago since the Elector of Saxony received the first flock of fine sheep into his dominions—a present from the king of Spain. For a long time it was a life penally of slavery in Spain to export a single sheep, but in 1781 a few were smuggled over to England wiih great expectation of profit, which however proved chimerical. In 1S0!», wheal he crown flocks of Portugal were sold for debt, Mr. Jurvis, our consul at Lisbon, took the opportunity of purchasing fourteen hundred and sending them home—from these, it may be said, have sprung the thousands of flocks which now roam luxuriantly over our fertile plains and boundless prairies.

SILENT LABOR. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Chronicle — 1 July 1847

SILENT LABOR. Silent, patient, continuous labor, docs more than noisy talk or vain boasting. Silent labor accomplishes nnd makes visible something that is enduring, while idle talk, like the babbling of a shallow brook, evinces more noise limn strength. This is good, encouraging, for well-directed labor will triumph ovei difficulties and obstacles, and result in the consummation of something useful. Thomas Carley says —speaking of work, " My friends, all speech and rumor is short lived and foolish untrue. Centime work alone, what thou workcth faithfully, that is eternal. Stand thou by that and let fame and the vtorldgo parting.** Another writer adds, courage, then—raise ihe ; arm—strike home, and that right lustily: the citadel of Hope must yield lo noble desire, thus seconded efforts, Woik, work with riijlil endeavor, \V«II« of nrOM resist not A ih.ble uitili'i lakint; —nur can vice Raise any bulwark to make good a place Where Virtue seeks to enter.
