evening star. TUESDAY, MAY 10, 1853. =TCbob RISING TOO HIGH* We answer, No; emphatically, No! La bor, like everything else, is regulated by the great law of Demand and Supply. In proportion to the quantity of the demand will be the price of the supply. It was reasonably U> be expected by all thinking men, that the sudden emigration of laborers from the Atlantic to the Pacific slope of our country, would produce a scar city of labor in the former. This scarcity of course increases the market. This in creased demand involves a consequent advance of wages. For, other things being equal, the scarcer an article becomes the greater is the enhancement of its relative value. This reasoning is as true of the labor market as it is of any other. Industrious labor, in proportion as it becomes scarce, advances in value. And it is right that il should be so. The inexorable law of trade is applied by the agriculturist, the mer chant, the manufacturer, and the shipowner. "Why should it not be ap...

EVENING ST AH. Weekly Calendar. Days lenyth 14 hours and 00 minutes. LOCAL AIT AIRS. Revresentatives.?The people of some sec tions of this great country must be of the most worthless sort, if they are fairly represented. We can see them here as tbey really are, druuken, gambling; the shves and pimps of prostitutes whose in lluence over them is more extensive and weighty than the wishes of their con stituents. What would be thought of a president who would regard the wishes of a prostitute iu the appointment of an office ? The community would be up is arm against him. And yet we have good reason to be lieve that the influence of a member or ex membcr is about to be exerted in favor of an incompetent seeker, on the recommenda tion of a woman of this sort. It is time for our citizens to cry out :tgainst the conduct of these men?these representatives of free people, intelligent people, decent people!

DAILY EVENING STAR. HOBODY'S child. by *R8. jiariax*e dexisox. The daylight plays in the old alley as well as it can for the dust-heaps and tali black houses. Here and there through the tan of wind, sun, and layers of dirt, gleams a white spot like the leaf of a lily, telling that beauty is not wholly banished, eveu from here. A child has fallen over your broken door-step. It sleeps, but not unwatched, for the homely mother leaves her suds to Bteal now and then a quiet look, and wish he may sleep till her toil is over. From lit tle tongues the roll of the blasphemer sum mons kindred spirits, and begrimed imps play toss-penny and root the dirt deeper into their sallow cheeks. Nought disturbs this old alley save pover ty and crime. Intemperance swaggers and drunkenness staggers, throwing its lean hand against the rattling window-panes, and crushing in the old hat-crowns that line broken apertures. Here comes a group worth studying. A boy with ^unny locks, leading his sister from the p...

EVENING STAR. WEDNESDAY, MAY 11, 1853. "WHAT WILL BE DONE ABOUT IT!" This is the question that is being asked at the corner of almost every street, and by almost every fire side in the land, with reference to the most recent atrocious rail road massacre. Alas! it is a question much easier asked than answered. These fright ful public murders have been committed so long with impunity, that they are almost ex pected now as matters of course. Our rail road, and rivers, and lakes, and ocean shores, have become so familiar to the sight of human blood and the sound of human groans, that it would seem as if they could hardly be expected to see and know any thing else. But if we were asked " what ought to be done about it ?" we should answer in a way that our readers would be likely to re member. Perhaps the time has not yet come for bringing public sentiment up to the standard where it would sustain such a law as these cases ?f human slaughter re quire. We are living in a time of profound p...

< DAILY EVENING STAR. is religion beautiful* Always ? In the child, the maiden, the wife, the mother, religion shines with a ho ly. benignant beauty of its own, which no thing of earth can mar. Never yet was the female character perfect without the steady faith of piety. Beauty, intellect, wealth! they are like pit falls, dark in the brightest day, unless the divine light, unless religion throw her soft beams around them, to puri fy and exalt, making twice glorious that which seemed all loveliness before. Religion is very beautiful?in health or sickness, in wealth or poverty. We never enter the sick chamber of the good, but soft music seems to float on the air, and the burden of their song is, " Lo! peace is here.'' Could we look into thousands of families to-day, where discontent sits fighting sullen ly with life, we should find the chief cause of unhappiness, want of religion in woman. And in felons' cell?in places of crime, misery, destitution, ignorance?we should behold in al...

EVENING STAR. THURSDAY, MAY 12, 1853* THAT EABTHQTJAKE. Judging by the way some of our ex changes speak of the matter, ono would be inclined to suppose that there had not really been an earthquake in this good city of Washington, after all. Now we beg to assure all and singular of our readers that to continue to suppose this would be a great mistake. There has been an earthquake in Washington,?a real, bona fide shaking of old terra firma,?and the witnesses to the fact stand ready at any moment to testify. And a most singular fact connected with it is, that it occurred at the period of just one year from the previous earthquake?one year to a day. On the anniversary of the same day, and almost at the same hour in the day, the same symptoms of earth trembling and vibration were observed by several persons in Washington, particularly at the \V est end of the city. A gentleman who has his office perma nently iu the North front of the Executive Mansion informs us that he noticed the shock...

his old playmate only yesterday. And even Mr. Selby himself remarked one day, what a sweet, lady-like girl Ellen Moore was and that you always used to be a pet of his." As I spoke, Ellen's face, which before had been somewhat pensive, broke into smiles. Ellen was pretty girl, with a slight, flex ible figure, gentle, sensitive expression, and massy braids of glossy black hair. Al though she looked pleased, she did not, however, continued the subject, and said, after some minutes' silence; "I have been wishing for a long time we had a new organ and choir in the church ; these scraping fiddles, and that poor old John Morris;s screeching, are dreadful." 44 It would be indeed delightful," I an swered?for my ears had suffered martyr dom for some years from causes to which Ellen had alluded?"but I fear there is little hope for us. An organ would be beyond our means, and who would play it il we had one?" "Why, you and I, dear Miss Madeline; and perhaps Kitty Selby; she used to plaj nicely o...

DAILY EVENING STAR. A Good Digestion. We find in the "Gazette des Tribuneaux," a Parisian journal, a very singular scene which recently took place at an eating house in the French Capital: A person named Rupins on entering a ca/e, said, "gentlemen, I'm a physiognomist, and can, from an examination of the face, describe the character and future lot of each of you." A tradesman, M. B , requested him to examine his face, which he did with great appearent attention. "I see," said he, "from the protuberances on your fore head, that you have great aptitude for works of imagination. You are naturally good, but do not like to be offended. A person in whom you feel interest is now writing to you, and you will soon receive a considerable sum on which you did not cal culate." He next made an examination of other people's faces, and talked in the same vague way. He afterwards presented his cap, and collected the gratuities of the company. "Waiter!" he then cried. "What shall I serve you, sir?" ...

in a pool newly formed by the advancing wave of the flowing tide. The fall horror of his situation now broke upon him. Clasping his half-dead daughter in his arms, he staggered with her in the direction of the zig-zag path; but it was a spring tide, and the ^dashing waves were hurrying forward so rapidly that he could not have reached it in time to save himself, even had he been alone. He might perhaps, had he been unencumbered, have made a desperate effort to climb up the high, frowning cliffs; but with Ellen this was out of the question. All he could do was to drag her upon a rock, and wait there in the forlorn hope that ere the tide reached them, some one might descry them from above the heights?a road, however, which was little frequented. A bitterness greater than that of death now took possession of the soul of Mr. Moore. The raging waves, the insurmount able cliff?his daughter, his adored Ellen, so soon to be lying beneath those bright, pit iless waters! Then came almost madd...

DAILY EVENING STAR. A Hint to Rifling Statesmen. " One reason," says a writer in the Bos ton Transcript, " why the South has taken almost all the Presidential nominations, has been, that her politicians are better cultiva ted, socially, than ours, and are making capital with the leaders at Washington, in the drawing room and at the dinner table ; ?while our Northern politicians are spending all their force in making long and eloquent speeches. There is great influence in speeches and orations, undoubtedly ; but there are times and seasons when smiles and oyster sauce make a greater impression." Elsewhere the writer observes: " The true secret of Mr. Clay's undying populari ty was, that his manner was so genial and engaging, that those who had once ap proached him never forsook him. So, too, Mr. Calhoun's magical influence in South Carolina may be traced mainly to the same cause. All who were honored with his ac quaintance always loved him. One of our citizens who happened at one tim...
