The great Dr. Johnson was once
asked, who was tlie moBt miserable
man, the reply of the sage was:
/'That man who can not read on a
rainy day." What a volume of truth
in u single sentence ! Indeed it is a
solid truth (hat the man wiio has re
sources within himself for happiness,
is happier and more contented than
the one who seeks his happiness from
sources without. Hence the gieat
Hohei t Hall speaks the truth : "The
man who can read, and possesses a
taste for reading, can lind Bufllcient
entertainment at home ; the man who
can uot, is tempted to repair to the
nubile bouse for entertainment/' It

Mb, Editob:?In the expression,
"Thore is an evil genius that shapes
our ends rough, hew thorn as we
may," how should "rough" be parsed?
If it read, "There is a divinity that
shapes our ends niaely," the word at
tiic close would refer to tho verb
''shapes," but you could not say
that 'ro*gh" was on adverb, could
jou? Yet it evidently modifies the
meaning of tho verb instead of the
noun preceeding it. Is not this the
meaning, "which shapes our ends so
that they are rough," the ends ami
not the manner of shaping, being
According to your way of quoting
the expression with a comma after
?'rough," the word "lough" would
? evidently he parsed as an adverb.
Webster jays "rough" is an adverb,
and Sir Walter Scott uses the word
with that meaning in the following
seuteuce; "Sleeping rough in the
trenches, and dying stubbornly in
iheir boats." But according to our
way of thinking our fair "Inquirer"
has misquoted the passage. Shakes
peare has it thus : "There is a divin
ity that shapes our ends rough?hew
thuiu how we will." We will be very
glad to bear from "Inquirer" again
ami if we cant't give satisfactory an*
ewes, we will insert in tho column
und call loudly for help.
Mr. Eorroa :?In answer to the
question in the list issue of the Dm
ocrat, in regard to the parsing of
"worth" io the sentence, "That knife
is worth a dollar," 1 would call
"worth" an adjective, modifying
"knife," as il expresses a quality
which can be alleged of a noun, and
modi lied by an adverb. There is a
similar sentence in Smith's Gram
mar?"That knife is richly worth a
dollar," c*c. I wil be glad to hear
