Ix is _istkebstinq to watch the operations of the human mind as they are sometimes displayed in the proceedings of statesmen and parties. It has Been well said that men are often captivated and cowed by a great name; but there is another truism not less familiar and much more unsound—we allude to the terror produced by cant phrases like « the cowardice of concession," « the rascality of compromise," and " the weakness of conservatism." We have seen before, and we see nowj almost every day, bow just such catchwords as these intimidate public men in council, and paralyze the movements of public organizations. Let _ns look at the exact value ef these words. la not all human life hut one concession to natural and artificial difficulties ? Is not our constant struggle with human affairs a constantly-recurring compromise with circumstances ? Are we not all the creatures of circumstances? And, as to conservatism, who can prosper in business or attain the good-will of Ms fellow-men that...

a t3 "5 > . _,1 1 1 Serious fears for the aafety ot the Capitol are still entertained. There seems no doubt that a scheme for its capture) before the fourth ot March, has been under consideration among s ome of the more ardent and determined Secessionists. But the probabilities are that it will be entirely abandoned, In view of tbe preparations which have been made to resist it by tbe Administration, by Gen. Scott, by the authorities of Washington city and tbe masses of its people, who have a deep personal and pecuniary interest in preventing the destruction of the Union. It is one thing to seize upon an unprotected fort, located in the midst of a population who are favorable to the Secession movement, and quite another to attack the seat of Government when it is defended by a considerable body of troops, and when an immense number of strong* armed and stout-hearted men are ready to volunteer, at a moment's warning, to assist them in upholding the Constitution, and enforcin...

The Great Rarey Show. It is not too much to designate Mr. Babey, the horse-tamer, as one of the most remarkable men of his time. The lesson wMch he practically exercises upon the brute creation is applicable, also, to the human race. The Law of Kindness ought to be universal, for, ¦whether with man or brute, it is invariably successful. Our present purpose, however/is not to pMlosopMze upon Mr. Eajlkt's rare doings, but to give a hint wMch may be useful to him. Great dissatisfaction was manifested at Mr. Rabbit' s first performances at Niblo's Theatre, New York. Crowds rushed thitherto see Mr. _Barit'b feats, and found, on entering the house, that all the good seats, in parquette and dress-circle, were already occupied by ladies and gentlemen for whom they had been " reserved/' and who had been quietly admitted, by a private entrance, in advance of the unreserved public at large.
