One day, early in my fifteenth year, I found myself in the High street ofSillerton, with a very ragged coat to my back, and possessed of a capital of twopence. 1 did not know a soul in the town. Half a cen tury has passed over my head since that I day. I have now a professional bnsi ! ness worth three thousand a year. My ! estate of Goldsworth Hall now yields me ' fifteen hundred a year: and I have one or two other little investments not altogether to he despised. I was chief magistrate of Sillerlon, a town which has upward ot fifty 1 thousand inhabitants. I am, say, a pro fessional man, and my success, such as it I is, has not been achieved by lucky specu lation, like that of many who succeed in , trade. I have run uo risks. 1 have • worked my way slowly up the hill, step by step; and my own success has as much astonished me, as their own want of it has, I see, astonished many of those who began life iu advance of me. As 1 have always observed that to disclose the secret machin ery of success acts somehow as an anodyne to* the sting of failure, 1 now purpose to afford this compensation to those to whom 1 can see that my better fortune has been the cause of some jealousy and heart-burn ing | J lie causes ot tame, one nl your literary I men says, are obvious, while those of for ! tune are hidden. Hidden, 1 suppose they j are, from foolish, unpractical men ; hut : really, they are not very difficult todiscover ! by a maif of plain common sense, who is , not blinded by self-conceit. When seventeen, I was promoted from | messenger to be clerk in the office of one ! of the leading attorneys in Sillerton. My i salary for three years was thirty pounds, j and i lived on live and twenty. I am not, j however, going to take up time with an ac : count of how I fought with poverty, or of I how I made myself a sound lawyer by i studying while others were smoking or j sleeping. I have known many men who i were as diligent as 1 was, hut who stuck j in the mud, nevertheless. You will hardly make your way in business without being i industrious, and without knowing your I business—and these qualifications, so tar as 1 have seen, are ordinarily quite suffi cient to keep a business which has been made for von, hutnot to make one. 1 saw this very etfrly in life; yet I was not what is called a clever fellow, I never thought i was. My fellew clerk, Sam. I could write a business letter in a quarter of the time it tookmO. Then, Sam's letter was neat, sharp and to the point, while mine was hardly respectable grammar. Conceive, then the astonishment of Sam, of myself, and of the whole office, when the situation of correspnudiug clerk—the most dignified and best paid in the office— was given to me. 1 could not understand it at that time, hut subsequently tin1 roys ! tcry was made plain to me. 1 Two of those above me had a mark against them for immoral conduct, while the temperament of my friend Sam was not a business one. He had an irresistible tendency, both iu speech and correspond* tleiiee, to let men see what he thought ot them. My own letters, 1 can see on look mg back, never ion into tins error, ana so never got our masters into hot water. So long as we gained our point, and did what was fair ourselves, whore was the use of letting one man see that you thought him j >illy, and another that you thought him dishonest? 1 took precious good care to see as far as other people; but 1 took, if possible greater eare that nobody should see how much I saw. My cue was always to make a man, if possible, well pleased with himself, and, at the same time, to make him feel that he could not get the better of me. Then l was always good-humored. 1 was not going to let a man out me be cause he had done me an injury—nor, on the other hand, was 1 going to cut him be cause I saw he suspected that I had done him one. While I strove, ami I believe with success, to be good-humored and pleasant to every one, I avoided excessive j intimacy with any one—having observed that this i> almost always the prelude to a quarrel—first conics hot weather, then a thunder storm, and then cold. I never was "confidential," as it is called, with any one. Wes anybody ever so without repenting of it ? 1 had a hard light, too, and 1 was on the other side of thirty, before I saw my way to being anything more than a clerk. I saw a good many men get a step or two in advance id' me, through luck, but 1 never consumed my energy in jealous fretting on this account. Nature gave me a good digestion, and 1 took the alfairs of life coolly and with good temper. My chance would conic—and even if it did not, though I desil’cd fortune, 1 was fru gal and could enjoy life without it. An uncle of Sam’s, I remember, who had much in his power, passed him over in a I good appointment. The cause was plain. The young man to whom he gave it was the son of a man from whom the uncle expected something. Could anything have been more reasonable and natural ? Vet what did the silly Sam do? lie wrote au angrv letter to ids uncle, full ot bosh about "conduct to his own brother’s son—the brother who had helped him so I generously when tie was pool me. .xow Row can lin n expect the world to reward | them if they won't adapt themselves to it? ! Do they think it is going out of its daily | path to meet their notions,of justice and generosity? No good, it was plain tome, 1 could ever come of being out of humor with any one, and 1 hardly ever felt the ; inclination. If a man tried to cheat tue, 1 | did'nt allow him, hut 1 felt no anger with him. Men pursued their own interests: : 1 pursued mine, i endeavored by good humor, knowledge of business, and atten I tion, and by scrupulous conformity to the | usages of society, to merit the reward i which society has to give; and by patience I got it. 1 soon saw that of all things to he avoid ed by those who have their position to make, is the affectation of conventional non conformity. Who hut an ass, Sam used to say, would mind your wearing a ; cap instead of a hat, if you find a cap more comfortable; and then Sam would glance with contempt at my well brushed beaver, and at my neat, black kid gloves, which I always wore when I had got as far up in the world as to justify the expense. But, Iia, ha! Sam, my boy, I used to think, let those laugh who win. I never troubled my head much with what the world ought to think; I was not clever enough to put it right, and what it did think always seemed to me much the more impotrant point. Nature, I admit, has given me some outward advantages for getting on. Of these 1 have carefully made the most. I am tall and broad-chested, with gray hair standing erect upon an ample and "com manding looking forehead. My “pres ence,-’ 1 have often observed, in the bank of which I am manager, is sufficient to bring guilt and confusion into the face of the man who brings me a doubtful bill for discount, while the heartiness of my laugh —the style of one’s laughter is a point to be carefully attended to—and the cordial way in widen I can shake hands when I choose, has brought many a strong man’s account to tho bank. 1 have always been most at tentive to dress—and my costume has been nearly the same for twenty years. I wear a black frock-coat, waistcoat of the same material, with dark-grav trousers. Since 1 was made manager of the bank I have carried a gold-headed cane, with which I walk to and from the office. On the same occasion 1 bought a gold repeater | watch, which 1 wear with gold seals, in ; the good old fashion. 1 must say that X laid aside my old silver turnip with regret; i it had kept me true to many ;i business i engagement in the davs of youthful strug , gle. 1 know ot no tiling which argues more against a man being possessed of a pru dent business-like spirit, and is, therefore, more calculated to tell against his business prospects, than marrying on an insufficient or precarious income: but, on the other hand, when he has reached a becoming period of life, there can be no doubt that a pus lent and sensible marriage adds to his weight and respectability. As for myself, 1 felt the gravity of mar riage to lie so great that I had been in a position to marry for some years before I could fairly make up mV mind to it; but when 1 got the bank 1 began to see dis tinctly that the inferior social status of a single man was altogether inappropriate and unbecoming to nty position. In choosing a wife I was guided just by the shine principles which have guided me in the other affairs of life, and which have led me, not altogether discreditably, I venture to hone. If I did not marry for love, as it is called, at least I did not tire of nty wife at the end of three months. If 1 did not tell her before we were married that she was an angel, I was never uncivil to her afterwards. 1 chose my wife, because, having known her for sc. end years, she appeared to be prudent, sensible and economical, and likely to manage my house creditably; and, on the whole, tny expectations were reasonably well fulfilled. I may add that she was good-looking, which I frankly confess that I regard as an advantage in a womau. We were not blessed with any family ; and when she was called away from "me last year I did feel very queer and lonely. Hilt when two agree to jour liev through life together, it is plain that one must die tirst. 1 ileilicatea such an amount of time to grief as the world has seen tit to require and sanction; but I did | not allow myself to sink into a morbid ! and sentimental condition. The period of legitimate grief having expired, I resume 1 iny attention to business, ami I am not I ashamed to say that I was able to resume J my interest in it. j There are, 1 think, few common habits : more fatal to business reputation than a habit of chattering. When I heara young man starting in life ready to deliver his opinion at a moment's notice on the ques tion of the day, I'mark him as one whom I shall certainly not be the first to send business to. No man should presume to engage the attention of the company by talk, unless his age and position are mark edly superior. No unmade man should ever talk to the company. 1 feel that I cannot give too great weight to this im portant trnth. By talking, you not only allow others to take note of your vanities ; and weakness—and we all have our share. | only some are cleverer in hiding them I than others—hut, by the mere fact of taifc Mug, you affront men of age and position, j and thus make them indisposed to help you. They think, and think rightly, that it is for age to talk, and youth to listen. | But even among those of your own stand ! ing, voting man, with your way to make, ! be advised. Nature lias given von two | ears: keep both fully employed. You j have but one tongue: let it enjoy plenty I of leisure. ' If conformity in details be desirable for i those w lio wish to dwell in the World, it is -urii tlv indispensable in matters intrinsi eallv important. For any one to talk ir I revert ntly of. or conduct himself with lei in toward any institution of church or j state, is wliat l have never been able to tolerate: and it is a style of couduet which 1 am glad to say, society is certain to visit ! with its severest displeasure. Busy as we list'll to be in tlie othee all the week, wneii 1 was a young man, 1 rejoice to say that I never was once wilfully absent from church, either forenoon or atteroon ; anil higher*con#ideralions apart, 1 may say tluit l know of no better way for a young | man to show that he possesses a steady 1 and tractable spirit, deserving advance ment nuil encouragement, than by regular i attendance at church. Nor do I know ! anything which tells more, or tells moro 1 justly, against a young man’s prospect* in I business! than neglect of the ordinances of religion. 1 have said that I cultivated silence in i cot many, yet 1 took care not to he morose lv taciturn! I listened with deference and interest to the conversation of mV'elders ! :lnd social superiors, anil was always ready to laugh at a joke, provided it was properaiul harmless. Anu when my ago and position becomes such as to call on me to lend the conversation, 1 could amuse 1 the young fellows, too, with harmless tale and anecdote. What 1 have always avoid
