the suggestions directed to thtmt .
We love to lee dote, active end unwearied
performanoo of duties, Intoriperted with gale
tlet, and amuimenti of a refining and elevating
character. Let young men have debiting socle
ties, librarict, toclal halls, engage in fiihtng,
hunting and gymnaitlo exercises. Let the wine
cup, race i, playing esrd and billiard tablet be
forsaken. , Money spent for clgtrt, wine, to
baooo and luuh useless Indulgonoiet oould be
bettor devoted to the purchase of thtlli, miner.
alt, coins, antiques, indeed any curiosities of na
ture, or art, ongraviaga, statues, puintinga, Sic.
The coarse and Ignorant delight only in the
pleasures of sense, We da not advocate quiet
and sedentary amusements altogether. Exerols
es of muscular strength, such as calisthenics
and gymnaatios, are beneficial when well con
dueled. What you do, do with nil your soul.
None of us admire a listless, selfiah, caro.for
nothing person, while one of clear, vigorous,
mind and energy, exerts an Influence wherever
he goes. The enthusiatm one person can cre
ate by bold and earneit action is eatoni.hlng.

Lot the young ladies of a town meet one af
temoon every week, tr.d spend it in reading

anything they meet, connected with the subject
discussed, or that under consideration, be im

be surprised to find how much they have learn

their needles, either on work of their own, or
for some benevolont purpose, In their reading
let tlit in bo unprejudiced, and coolly, cnrefully
