THE GRANDLOTTERY.-The great real
estate lottery, to be drawnat Jacksonville,
Florida, which numbers ainong its prizes
Banks's large and splendid Arcade and
Bishop's Hotel, occasions no little talk and
speculation among all classes; and many
of those who are in the habit of "countina
chickens hefore they're hatched," seem at
a loss what to do with their prizes :chen
they get them. We were miuch amused
at a conversation between a couple of dar
kies a few evenings since, held ot ihe.steps
of the Atchafalava Bank. Each of them
had concluded to purchase a ticket; each
appeared to think that one of the 6rincipal
prizes was his, to a certainty. The only
difficulty appeared to be what distribution
to make of the property. *'I say, Sam
Jonsing, wat you 'speck to do wid let Ar

"Wat I "speck to do wid him? Wy. in

right ting, and if you says so I'll ctm and
board wid you. don't spose you'll charge

a week." "No, not if you pays for your

affairs satisfactorily, Sam and Peter ad
journed each to his own kitche.-N. 0.
Good rules.-The way to get credit is to
he punctual'-the way to preserve it, is
not to use it much-settle often-have short
Trust no man's apppearances-they are
deceptive-perhaps assumed for the pur
poseofohtainingcredit. Beware of agau
dy exterior. Rogues usually dress well.
The rich are plain men. Trust him, if
any one, who carries het little on his back.
Never trust hin wio flies in a passion on
being dunned-make him pay quickly if
there be any virtue in the law.
Beware of him who is an office seeker
-men do not usually want office when
they have any thing to do. A man's af
fairs are rather low when ho seeks office
for support. Agree beforehand wit h every
man about to do a job; and if large, put it
into writing-if any decline this, quit, or
expect to be cheated. Though you want
ajobeverso much, make all sure at the
onset; and in a case at all doubtful, make
sure of a guarantee. Be not afraid to ask
it; it is the best test of responsibility, for if
offience be taken, you have escaped a loss.
