, THE TWO RULES. ,
. : FROM MERRV'B MCSKOM. , ,s
Here are two rules for you, Fred."
said Giles Warner, looking up from the
paper he was reading, and, addressing' a
younkef brother, who was sitting by the
stove, playing with a favorite dog. J '
Well, what are theyi let's nave inem.
said Fred, suspending his sport with ' the
dog. " ;' ' ' '
"The first is: never set vexed with any
thing you can help. The second: never
get vexed with anything you can't help."
"Are not these rules as applicable to
you as to mo7" 'inquired .Fred," afclily."
Mo doubt oi that," replied biles,
good humored y, "but then it if bo much
easier to hand over a piece of gcW advise.
to another than to keep it for one a own
personal use.'. It is a kind of" generosity
that don't requite any self-denial." .
s red laughed. f
"But what say you," continued Giles,
to these rules? How would it work if
we should adopt them?"
"I think they1 take a pretty wide and
clean sweeps said Fred. Y'They' don't
leave a fellow any chance at all to get
vexed." ' - '
"That might be an Objection to them,"
said Giles, . "if any one was wiser, better,
or hsnpier for netting ' vexed. I think
they are sensible rules. It is foolish: to
vex ourselves about any thing that can be
helped, and it is useless to vex ourselves
about what can t be helped, hei us as
siet each other to remember , and obey
these two simple rules. What say you;
"I'll agree to it,. said Fred, ,. who was
usually ready to. do anything his -brother

"No, we shan't," said Giles. "We
shall only have to. walk a little faster.
Besides if you will keep cool, yon will find
the string,, and put it in much sooner than
if you become vexed and worried.
"That's true," said Fred, as he started
for the string, quite restored to good hu-

adopted rules. The last was this: . , . i

you must not get vexed about it."
' ' "li might have been . helped," said
Giles, "but I can do better than to fret
about it I can learn a lesson of care for
the future, which may some day' save , a
knife mora valuable than this. These
rules work well. Let's try , them to-mor

' Dcnth ol fVasbliitton Irvine
Our Telegraph report announces the
death of this genial and universally beloved
American .author, . Mr,,. Irving' fame
dates back to a period beyond the memory
of most of the, present, generation. : His
publio efforts were a series of letters to (he
"Moi ning Chronicle," of which his brother
was editor, under the signature of ."Oliver
Oldstyle,' in 1802. ; He wa3 then nine
teen, bad received a common education,
and had been three years at the study, of
law.... These essays attracted much atten
tion, and were afterwards collected and
published in a book. His health haying
failed, he visited Europe lor two years, and
in 1806 returned and resumed the study
of law,' He was admitted to the bar, but
hal hot the gift for law. . ,..-; :
He took chief part in the "Salmagundi"
magazine in 1807, and in 1808 published
his Knickerbockers history of New York.
His last Work was the life of Washington
He has been uniformly successful as an
author, and has acquired more fame on
the other side of the Atlantis than any
other American writer. , It is but a short
time since Mr. Willis, in the "Home. Jour
nal," described his visit to Mr. Irving at
Sun'nyside. To him he seemed in excel
lent preservation, and with a promise of
sis ' . aT
yenrsoi lite and neaitn. Mr. irving im
pressed his personal acquaintances with
the charms of benevolence,' genial humor,
and warm hearted ness that are so distin

'' If we die to-day the sun will shine as

he dead? will be the solemn inquiry of the
few a they pass' to their work. : But no
pne will miss us except our immediate con
nections, and in a short time they will for

sat beside them." Thus shall we all, now
active in life, pass away. Our children
crowd close behind us, and they will soon
be gone; In a few years not a living being
can say,' "I remember him." We lived
