FIVE PAGES A DAY.
To all whom it may concern. Be
ware of undertaking lob much. There
cannot be a greater fault in the business
of life. Knowledge is--pguired-wealth
gained-(il that .knowildge is worth
having, or that wealth to be reckoned
upon witlr safety,)'by little -and little.
High prizes 'nevor .oide a man rich.
Vast and sudden* acquisitions by the
memory never made a man wise. Be
palieni, hopeful, persevering. Be satis
fied with very little at first. Be not
discouraged, even though, for long years,
you may not be sensible of gteat pro
gress in iour pursuit. Be fiithful to
yourself, and your reward is certain.
Five pages a day read- carefully, apid
thought over, will do more towards
stre.gthening the upper faculties of MAN,
than three hundred pages a day, read as
three hundred pages must be read,
though one were to do nothing else.
At the end of five years, he who has
read five octavo pages a day, regularly,
every day, ,and nEither more nor less,
under anygjemptation, has read 9,125
pages-equal to tirty volumes octavo
of 300 pages each.
Now, thirty volumes octavo, of well
chosen, well.understood, and well-di
gested science, would be worth more
than a collegia(e education, to ninety,
nine persotis out of a hundred.
Is there any mnn,or any boy, so busy,
that lie cannot find time to read five
octavo pages ? One volume of 300
pages in two months? Or six volumes
in a year'
Many are they, amnng women and
git Is, and men, more foolish than eitler,
who average a volume a day, year after

the end of a long life, what are they
good for? Wh'tt do they know? What
are they able tocommnticate to others?
To their companions for life ? To their
children? To their fidlow-nien I What
do they leave behind them to be . re
Suppose they had been satisfied with
reading ive pages a day-and only ive
pages a day-suppose the average read
ing life to be fifty years-and that all
began to read with advantage at five.
Instead of thoustands or tens of thous
ands of books hurried through and for
gotten, leaving no more impression upon
the understanding than the di ifting clouds
leave upon the suniner sea-in no way
exercising, cleat ing up, or stretigtiheting
the judgment--they would have read, or
studied, thought over and remembered,
but so as to be always ready to apply
their knowledge to the every day con
cerns of hunian life, only two hundred
and seventy-three volumes, octavo.
But if these two hundred and seventy
three volumes were properly chosen.

Sutppose a young man about bourning
a trade. Hie is already acquainted with
reading, writing, and arithmuetic. He
has had a common school education, and
nothing more. Hie has been brought up
to believe that learning is a sort of lux

trio leatned professors, as they are called
are the anointed rulers of the multitude.
At any rate, he sees thtat such is the
fact, understand it as lie may.
it never enters his head, poor fellow !
that lie can educate himself without the
help of mortal man-wvithout his living
help, that is. Hie wants to take a high
place among the sons of God-but feels
discourageed and ashamed. He is poor
-and his bread must bo earned by a
life of hardship, drudgerv and self de

throtigh his miind that Books are Teach

lie may find in any one of a thousand
libaries, open to all the wvorld. Still
less, that if lie can save time to read five
pages a day, lie mtay make himself any
thinig he pleases in time.
Is lie a printer, a ship-builder, a black

make himself thoroughly master not
only ofrtll that concerns his own particu
lar busiuness-immediately or remotely
--its history, progress, rind changes
but of almost every collateral branch of
human science, before ho gets through
with a regular apprenticeship. In seven
years he would have mastered-not
mnrly re.a but mastered--about fifty

And he would have acquired habits that

branch of study.
But why confine the spirit 'or inqniry

twfuty, fifty or.a iundred? - -
Simply becauseve pages a day, every
day, will do more towards enriching and
.strengthening his mind, than a hundred
pages a day, ivith intervals. Let him
say to himself, thus much I will do every
day of my life-rain or shine-before I
sleep; and then let him, if he will, read
the newspapets and niagazines, the nov
els and poetry of the age; for all these,
if read as they ought to be read, with in

Beware of undertaking too much.
Begin with five pages a day, as a regu,

you are absolutely sure of Ecing able to

--For about a week past. some few or

shooting sniakes, in the back water near
our town. They seem to seek refuge in

to hask in the sun. They have succeeded

MA-ratczro.-On the 28th tilt, a man
named Newkirk, living ahout fifteen miles
from Louisville, shut his own mother,
nearly a hunidred years old. After the
prepetrationt of the deetd he reloaded. his
gun, and. with fierce threats, ordered a
little negro boy about twelve years old
to shoot him. The hoy fired the gun, but
purposely missed him. Newkirk whipp
ed the boy terribly and then sent for a
neighbor to wvhom he remarked-"1 have
shot my mother-do --w think they wil
hang me'?" He s00 -.erwvards disap
peared and, at the last accounts, all the
efforts of thbe oflicers of justice to find him
had been unsuccessful. His neighbors
generallythink that he is insane.

' STORY OF THE HiGiiWAY.-Not

scorR of honest labor was immensely un,

po~erty had driven himt to an extremity,
anttiok to the highway, determined to
rob ihe first man he could conveniently
qieeV.vlho was likely to have a heavy
ojlly old farmer came jogging
alofig and Pat put hime down instantly
as a'party who possessed those requisites
he.stood so much in need of himself.
Presenting the pistol, he orderied the
agrlmilturist to '%land and deliver !'
The poor old fellow forked over some
filtyldollars; but finding Pat something
of aigreen horn, begged a five to take
him-fomre-a distance of about half a
mile, by the way. The request was
complied with, accompanied with a pa,
troning air. Old Acres and Rods was
a knowing one. Eveing the pistol, he
asked Pat if he would sell it.
"s.it sell my pistol ; sowl an' its that
samo.thing I'll be after doing. What
will je be afther giving for it I
'll.iive you this five dollar bill for it.'
'hlone ! and done and done's enough
between two gentlemen. Down wid the
dnstgAnd het e's the tool for yer.'
Thtibargain was made by immediate
transer. The moment th fdrmer got
the petronel, lie ordered Pat to shell
out; and pointing the pistol, threatened
to blow his brains out if I-o refused.
Pat 16eked at him with a comical leer,
and bottoning his breeches pockets, sung
'10-w away ould boy! d- I take
the bit.of powdher's in it.'
WeLbelieve the old man never told
the hst part of the story, only once, and
that ias by the purest- accident. Pat

away," has since been his motto.

in the Senate, for informaitinnrelative to
the alleged practice, by the Yucatan au

into slavery into Cuba, abd the means
taken to suppress the evil.
Arranguiz, the new Secretary of the
Treasury, had given notice to the Alex

and New York, that all vessels clearing
for the ports of Yucatan must conform
to the regulations of the general tariff of
October 4, 1835, otherwise the captains
and vessels will be subjected to the pains
and penalies therein preseibed. He
states that the particular regulations
made by Yucatan do not overrule the
