de, «*>“."■' nmi opinions, i never, to % recollection, said a word to the prejudice of any one, or ever sa.d a word which could hurt the feelmgs or pngud.ces ofanv respectable member of society. Mv aim was always to impress those whom I met with a feeling that I was a sound, cautious, good-tempered man of business j and of business aims. If I have a ta«te for anything besides business, it is what I believe no man ever suspected. I am fond ol horses: and what is more, I am a good judge of a horae. But no one ever heard me talk ol horses. Even since my success in business became decided, I have not indulged myself in keeping a horse. The young man w ho wants U> succeed, will do well to follow mv example. If he allows himself even to'talk ala)ut anv amusement for winch lie may have a taste, it is astonishing how soon he may have a reputation fixed upon him for lasing knowing in it. He will have plenty of rivals, eager to talk of linn as a good' shot, a good fisher, knowing in horses—being well aware that sueh a rep utation is certain to be most injurious, proliably fatal, to his business prospects. When a young man, 1 was a member ol a debating" society in our town. I never spoke except when the business of the so ciety was concerned. My reason for being a member was that a good many men of influence belonged to it, with whom I had thus an opportunity of becoming acquaint ed. My friend Sam was a distinguished member: and I recoil let going to lus lodg-! inora one ni>rht out of curiosity, when he ! had a meeting of his choicest menus. They were drinking toddy—a composition which I hate; indeed L hate all spirits; and as to smoking, it is a method of em ploying time which has always seemed to me'suitable only for those of weak intel lect. I was prevailed on, 1 remember, to try a pipe—faugh I It was the first time and the last. They tried to encourage me to “persevere,” by holding out the pros pect that by so doing i should become a smoker in iinte. Dare say 1 might have succeeded in making myself a slave to an expensive and idiotic habit had I chosen ; but that I should, by learning to smoke, bo putting down the smallest item to the credit of niv account with Fortune, was what i could not see; much less did I see that any balance was thereby likely to ac crue to Profit. 1 thought it as well to re serve my perseverance for somewhat dif ferent objects. So much. I suppose, for not l>eing clever, lint the talk was the wonderful thing. “What was love?”— “Did men aet from free will or from ne cessity?” and l fancy that they drank whiskey-and-water, smoked their vile to bacco, and muddled the small modicum of brains which God had given them, two or three nights a week in this way. If there is anything for which, from by boyhood, I have found it difficult to hide my con tempt, it is a man occupying himself with poetry, metaphysics, and such stuff, in stead of giving himself to the honest and obvious work of life, and pocketing the honest payment for it. I well remember how my clothes smelt of tobacco next morning, and what a (right I was in lest our master should notice this. I was, how ever, at the office as usual half-an-hour before regulation time, and I can remem ber that I got a job to do which would have fallen to Sam had he been there in lime. It put half a sovereign in my pocket—a sum not to be despised in those days. aow l uo noi mean 10 say, in giving yie above sketch of my own animus, that men have not arrived at fortune whose mental machinery would, if dissected, show a very different arrangement of wheels and piv ots. Sheer audacity will sometimes do wonders, especially in public life. Vet I think my own plan has been about as sure and as easy a one ns can be followed. If 1 were to name one advantage ot mind which I have had over other men, 1 should say it is this—1 was a sensible tellow as a Smart. By reason of pride, conch, or o over ambitious, you will often see a manbetween his twentieth and twenty fifth year commit an error which he never has a chance of retrieving. Opportunity gone is gone forever, He is thrown off the life—shunted—so to speak, and the rest of life is embittered, not only by the con sciousness of failure, but bv the conscious ness that he has only his own vanity to blame for the failure. Generally 1 have noticed that the causes of a man's failure are distinctly visible to every one but him self. 1 have known men with capital busi ness heads, and with all the inclination to work, the mystery of whose lives—inscru table to, amf undreampt of by, themselves —lay in their manner; shy, retiring fel lows, who never make acquaintances, but allow any man to cultivate them; hence their tendency is, inevitably, downwards in the social scale. A shy man, whose mental cuticle is so tender that the blood comes at every scratch, may perhaps suc ceed as a clergyman, or a doctor, or chance may put him in a safe business po sition, but to push his way through the rough and thorny brushwood which besets the outset of a business career, is what he need never try. “ Know your business, scrupulously re spect the world's conventionalities, face it boldly, receive its kicks and its cuffs—of whieh you will have a good allowance at starting—with invincible patience and good.ihumor, and it will come round to you in time, But it is a coy mistress, and one with many lovers.

MILL**, Waldoboro’, > Connly sAULi.lJ HoMi, Jefferson, tou.»,ui„ If.merit PoaaitTT, Bristol, ) Julv 11, IS7» THE DEMOCRATIC PLATFORM. The platform of the Democracy adopted at Bangor Is about as loosely jointed and poorlv shapeu a piece of workmanship as could well bo constructed. The arraign ment of the National Administration as a failure on the score of economy and faith-, fulness in national affairs, in the face of, the tact that it has reduced the public debt since President Grant was inaugurated, .* 156,188.784, while at the same time greatly reducing taxation, is a piece of hardihood that even Democrats might shrink from Wing responsible for. If this is a failure, how about Andrew Johnson's, which was extolled and supported by the Democratic party, although it increased the national debt thirty millions and kept up a reign of terror in the South of which the bloody riots at New Orleans and in ■ Georgia were the direct growth ? IVc think they must have forgotten their own record when they talk about this matter. Mr. Johnson, with taxation at the highest point, created a larger debt by the sum we have named, while President Grant, with taxation reduced more than two hundred millions annually, lessened the debt as above, and will soon throw off eighty mil lions more of taxes. According to Demo-: cratic ideas, however, Johnson with his, w hiskey rings and “bread and butter" j party was economical, while the present Administration, with its honest and suc cessful endeavors in managing the affairs of the government and reducing the bur dens of the people, is a failure. Their no tions of economy are about as sensible as their ideas of patriotism during the war; they see things inverted. But the strangest part of the whole plat form is that in which the State government is attacked. Is not Governor Chamberlain at the head of the State government, and have the Democrats not been praising his administration of State affairs with all the laudatory adjectives in the English lan guage? Yea, verily, have they not been so much in love with hint and his conduct of things relating to the State government that they desired to make him their candi date for Governor? Was it noton account of this that they had the late family “un pleasantness” at Portland and adjourned to Bangor? Why then this assault upon J the Slate government ? Why this sudden change of front ? Where were the “Young Democracy” when this joke was perpetra ted upon them, to make them the laughing stock of the cunning old hunkers and dis interested spectators? We should like to knowhow they can reconcile their late j fawning upon Governor Chamberlain with j these attacks upon his administration, j Will Mr. Roberts or some of his friends j please explain. That Democrats should I assail our common schools and endeavor j to abolish universal education is quite con- j sistent with their course, and what might be expected, but we don't see why they | should have so much admiration for the j head of our State government and so little j for tiie administration itself. That is what . puzzles us. In regard to free trade, protection, ship-; building, and the interests of our State. , we should be glad to have more light, for \ the resolves are not remarkable clear. ! Shall we have free trade with the Cana-1 das, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia by giving them access to our markets so that they can control the trade in lumber and farm produce against our own citizens ? Shall we discard the protection which shipowners have had in the laws that pro tect our coasting trade against being en gaged in by foreign vessels, and that which our ship-builders have by the regu lations that keep foreign vessels from competing with them in our markets ? We should like to know if free trade for the ! benefit of Canadian farmers and lumber j ers and New Brunswick and Nova Scotia shipbuilders is the kind of policy the 1 Democrats desire, because when plainly stated to the people o! Maine that doctrine would soon kill itself. Admitted that ship building is not prosperous, it does not fol ! low that the liberty to bring British-built 1 vessels into competition with our builders 1 will help the case. If a man is nearly dead with starvation, would a little more ot the same medicine restore him ? If the Demo crats think they can thrive upon such a policy as this we have no objection to their making the attempt. Lastly it appears the Democrats have become temperance men. Thanks for. this, they needed conversion ; now let them stick. POLITICAL. The nomination of Maroellus Emery by the democrats of the Fourth Congres sional District, as a candidate for Con gress, should have been accompanied by the reading of a copy of his paper issued after the attack on Fort Sumpter by tbe rebels. The young democracy of Maine are out generaled by the old hunkers, who still hold, own and control the organization ol the party. The nomination of Roberts is a sop to keep them under a couple of years more. The Maehias Republican urges the sup poit of Hon. Lot M. Morrill for United States .Senator. A correspondent of the Portland Press who favors Mr. Washburn for Senator says: Neither he, nor his friends, have orga nized “a party within a parly” to secure liis nomination, nor adopted any “new plan" for that purpose. He is not the fa \ orite of the Democratic politicians; and they probably would not unite with a mi nority of the Republicans to elect him. Nor would be engage in any “Senator tight,” in this city, or elsewhere, within i or without the Republican party, even if he eoidd raise an army of camp followers by to doing. He may not be chosen to till the chair once honored by Senator Fessen den. Rut if be is not, 1 think it will not be for any want of confidence iu him,— nor tor any desire to please the democrats I by follow ing their advice,—but for tbe reason that the present incumbent. Sena tor Morrill, evil! still be retained in his place. The new plan may divide and weaken us, and help the democrats in some localities ; hut that the great body of Republicans in this State are ready to turn aside and follow the men who are attempt ing to lead them into a new party, is not very probable. Such a ‘•plan" is indeed “new and the policy that dictates it is necessarily hostile to the party “within" which it professes to act. Whittemore retiies as a candidate tor Congress in South Carolina. He says he has no doubt of being elected should he consent to be a candidate, but for the sake of harmony perfers to withdraw. The Democrats of Missouri have re solved to make no State nominations this year, but if they can promote a Republi can “bolt” they will support the bolting ticket. Since the final action of the Legislature on the subject of prolongation, both par ties in Georgia accept the issues, and pri vate advices from there sav they are now going actively to aoik to secure a lair election in the tall. Vice President Colfax takes a lively in terest in the approaching political cam paign. and is actively engaged in strength ening the Republican cause by aiding those who are to take the stump this season with facts and figures relative to the suc cess of tile administration of the Govern ment under President Grant. GENEkAh HEW a. Sir Samuel Baker, the explorer, is stated to have been at Tenfikut on the 12th of June. In the Thames regatta, Sadler won the champion scull race. There is some speculation as to who will succeed Admiral Farragut as Admiral. The only officer in the first grade below Admiral is Vice Admiral l’orter. The Kansas Pacific Railroad is completed as far as Denver. Captain-General De llodas estimates his losses of Spanish troops in Cuba during the month of September at 3,0(X', and intimates that for the next three months they will be heavier. A number of National banks, organized under the new currency law are authorized to begin business. Seven are in Illinois, three each in Iowa, Michigan and Missouri, one in Wisconsin and two in Kentucky. The Spanish colonial minister telegraphs to De llodas that if the insurrection is not suppressed by the first of September he will I send 15.000 more troops to Cuba. Mr. Ramsey, the contractor for the ercc- | tion of the new Congregational Church edi fice in Washington, has sued Gen. O. O. Howard and the other trustees for damages in j the sum of 63000, alleged to have been sus tained by the plaintifl because he was not al lowed to finish his contract in accordance with instructions from the Secretary of the Interior A warrant was issued by Judge Gray of the Polit e Court for the arrest of Congressman li. R. Butler immediately upon bis aarival in Washington to answer the tdiarge of forgery. A detective was sent to Tennessee a few days ago to apprehend Butler, but he telegraphed hack to the Department that the bird had flown, and his friends said he had started for Washington. There are fears, however, that instead of coming to Washington he has left for parts nnknown. The recent instructions from the Internal Revenue Office, suspending the collection of taxes on ship builders' sales at Norwich, Ct.. are intended to apply to all ship building dis tricts. The question of liability of shipbuild ers to taxation is-now under consideration, though claims for the refunding of taxes al ready paid on shipbuilders' sales, founded on the non liability of ship builders to taxation will not for the present be entertained. A Havana correspondent writes that a ru mor was in circulation there last week that an expedition from the United States, com manded by the Venezuelan Arizmendi and Francisco Diez, formerly a broker of Havana, had landed west of Nuevitas. The cholera, which has been devastating the Spanish ranks, haa passed over into the insurgent camp. Among its recent victims was Don Mariano Jimimes, Lieutenant Governor of the Trinidad district. GHAUTE OF MAISE. Dix Island, Me., August K>, le70. To the Editor of the Journal. It is doubtless the fact that but few people of Maine are aware of the large amount of revenue that our State derives from the work ing of its granite quarries. In a recent num ber of your paper I noticed a description of the amount of granite \rprk being done by Messrs. Bodwell & Wilson at Hallowell, which has induced me to briefly describe that class of work now being carried on exten sively upon the islands of Penobscot Bay. Upon Fox Island (so called), embracing the incorporated town of Vinalhaven, are located several extensive quarries, which have been worked to some extent for the last twenty years, but for a few years past very exten sively indeed. The granite is of a superior quality and fine color, easily quarried and cheaply dressed, thus finding a ready mar ket, and will doubtless c ntinue to do so for many years, as the supply seems to be almost inexhaustible. Part of the granite required for the New York Post Office, the Masonic Temple at Philadelphia, and the massive bridge across the Mississippi at St. Louis, tie sides stone fronts, monuments, etc., has tor the last fall and winter furnished and is at present furnishing employment for upwards of three hundred men. There is also another quarry recently open ed by Gen. Davis Tilson & Co., on an island adjacent to Fox Island, known as Hurricane. The stock is said to be of a fine quality, and through the energy displayed by the proprie tors in preparing for operations, it can safely be predicted that very extensive work will soon be carried on there. About seven miles below the city of Hock land are located the Spruce Head quarries, the proprietors of which are Messrs. Cobb, Wight & Case. The granite there is also of gooil quality, and in great demand. A force of about one hundred men arc there constant ly employ ed upon works in various parts of the country. Upon Dix Island, containing but from forty to fifty acres, the most extensive operations are now progressing. It is owned and worked by tin* Dix Island Granite Company, of which the late Horace Heals, Ksq., was a member, and for many years its energetic Superinten dent. It Was from this quarry that the gran ite was furnished for the new extension to the U. S. Treasury Department, which is pro nounced by the best judges to be the most perfect and beautiful granite in America. A force of two hundred and fifty nu n arc now employed upon the work of quarrying stone for the New York City Host Office and Court House. Tin v have also recently commenced to furnish and dress stone for the new State Capitol at Albany. N. Y., row in process of erection, which when completed will be the most magnificent structure in the country. The granite worked upon all of the above islands to a great extent is dressed titer*' and boxed and shipp* *1 to its destination, thus giving constant employment ami good wages to first cla-s stone cutters. Ml of the quar ries are easy of ace* ss for the larg* st v* ssols. a ad the facilities for loading are such that the transportation ot Mono of ary dimensions re quired can be done easily Perhaps but few risitoti from Maine to the National Capital have thought as they gaged upon and admired that noble grarite structure the Treasury b at b « ***** ' f columns, pil asters. buttress**, caps or* . which support and adorn the edifice, were transported from the S ate ot Maine But when an called upon in this State to transport granite from the Penobscot to New Orleans and thence up the Mississippi river seventeen hundred miles to St. I.ouis, we can but conclude that our granite is in good demand, and that the future business prospects of our State in that respect can but be bright and promising. F. THE EllIfiATE ERAXP VWIXE. To the Editor of the Journal: Acgcsta, Acg. 17, 1870. 1 see in your issue of the 17th inst., a com munication from “C'hanning" dated in Wash ington, in which he states that on a recent visit to Norfolk he saw the l'. S. frigate Bran dywine, which once conveyed Lafayette to America, lying at the Navy Yard. As the waters of Norfolk Navy Yard have through treason and otherwise proved the grave of many a gallant ship of the olden time, he might have seen the ghost of the departed frigate, but the veritable old “ Brandywine,’ ^ of solid oak and iron he did not see. The ' frigate Brandywine for a long period during the war was moored off '• Fortress Monroe,’ and used as a Naval Storcship and for the headquarters of the paymaster to the “ Mus- , quito Fleet,” as the numerous small gunboats and tugs of the service were generally termed. During the winter of 18ti3 and '(14 she was towed to Norfolk and moored off the Navy Yard and used for the same purpose, besides acting as Rect iving Ship. She was an old hulk dismantled and housed over, but of great capacity for storage of material. In Septem ber, 18114, she was by accident totally destroy ed by fire, with a vast amount of naval and paymaster's stores on board, and that was the finale of the once gallant Frigate Brandy wine.

A council was held at Farmington Aug. Sth, to consider whether the pastoral relation of Rev. R. B. Howard with the Congregational church at that place, ought to be dissolved. It appeared that the church were very de sirous that Mr. Howard should remain, but that Mr. U. having received a call to become the pastor of a church in Princeton, III., thought he could be more useful to accept it. The council advised the dissolution of the pastorate, and commended Rev. Mr. Howard to the churches in the AA'est, as a faithful, earnest and able preacher of the gospel.

Prompt surgical aid was obtained, and he will proba bly recover without permanent injury. We read of a party of twenty-one from Weld, that visited Mt.
