Succesw In (.lie. A shrewd, intelligent man of the world—and one, too, who had been entirely successful; for from a small beginning, be had risen to the highest place in the department to which he had been attached, and made the fortune of his whole family, brothers, sons, ami nephews, us well as his own, once said to me, “The longer I live the more I am convinced that over-sen sitiveness is a great mistake in a public man.” l~ .— i.i ..ii ....... -i,- Jo.:..,. succeed in life. Now, I wish tube understood that what is here expressed by the word over sensitiveness, does not signify over-scrupu lousness. Be as scrupulous as you will, but do not be over-sensitive on the scon- of pride, or vanity, or dominant egotism. Every suc cessful man, you may be sure, has hail much to mortify him in the course of his career. He has borne many rebuffs; he has sustained many failures. What if men do not under stand you, are not inclined to encourage, ami exercise the privilege of age, or superior posi tion—bear with it all. Juvenis, your time will come; you may take your cliancc out of the world when you are a little older. Bah! how does it hurt you ? “Hard words break no bones,” saith the proverb. Aud they break no spirit that is not the feeblest. The world may laugh at your failures—what then? Try again, and perlia|» they will not laugh. Try once more, and perhaps it will be your turn to laugh, “lie who wins may laugh,” saith another proverb. If you have the right stuff in you you will not be put down. If we have the right stuff in us, these failures ai the out set are graud materials of success. To the feeble they are, of course, stumbling blocks. Tile wretched weakling (joes no further; he lags behind, and subsides into a life of failure. And so by this great winnowing process, the number of athletes in the great Olympic of life is restricted to a few, and there is clear space in the arena. There is scarcely an old man amongst us—an old and successful man—who will not willingly admit that he was made by his failures, and that what he once thought his hard fate was, in reality, his good fortune.— And thou, my bright-witted child, who think est that thou canst carry Parnassus by storm, learn to possess tity soul in patience. If suc cess were to crown thy efforts now, where would be thy great success hereafter? “It is the brave resolution to "do better next time,” that lays the substrata of real greatness.— Many a promising reputation has been de stroyed by early success. The good sap runs out from the trunk into feeble offshoots of suckers. The hard discipline of the knife is wanted. I repeat that it is not pleasant: but when thou feelest the sharpness of the edge, think that all who have come before thee have been lacerated in like manner. John Knox and nis Conjugal Rela tions.—John Knox wdto fancied himself a very independent personage, and of whom it is traditionally reported that he never trem bled before the face of man, made, somewhat late in life, the discovery that the face of wo man,Jaffer she has been put in full possession ol conjugal rights, is something more than terri ble. The austere reformer who fulminated his anathema against the “Monstrous Regiment of Women,” and who showed himself, to use the mildest possible term, the reverse of polite in his demeanor toward his annointed queen,was tempted in his old age to wiki a young damsel, and conducted her to his home in the Canon gate of Edinburgh with such grim rejoicings as w'ere then deemed admissible, and not sav oriug of idolatry on t he occasion of a Caledo nian marriage. But John soon discovered that, in departing from the precepts of Saint lu.nl u-lin hnil tilth- likinc for in.-itriinnnv- I,a had made a serious blunder. She of the house of Ochiltree could not forget that the renown ed preacher was originally a vassal of tlie Hepburns; and, being a lady of extraordinary energy and no small amount of self-will, she fairly succeeded in establishing within that queer little mansion, the bay-window whereof is stHl regarded as a curiosity, that very same monstrous female rule against which her spouse had, in earlier years, most vehemently protested. Yet, on the whole, though somewhat addict ed to gew-guws and fal-lals, we doubt not she made an excellent wife to the veteran lie former, and perhaps improved the tone of his manners ami conversation by teaching him the practical lesson that somew here or other, there always does exist a power to which the most wilful and iui|icrious must submit. Therefore, all these instances considered, we heartily join in the cry of “P/arn aut Jhtmr* /” It is not a men; empty courtesy that allows them to take the precedence. They go before their hus bands because they are the natural leaders: and when domestic strife arises, it is usually the male and not the female who is the party chargablc with rebellion. • * • Upoll (he whole, let us admire and assent to that exquisite provision of nature, which, without unduly favoring either sex, gives the predominance to the stronger intel lect and w ill; and let those who are conscious of being henpecked lay this flattering unction to their souls, that they are no worse off than Marlborongh and Marshal Ney, and reconcile themselves to their fate accordingly.—| Black wood. Novei. Law-suit.—in June last two law yers of Kingston, Mr. G. and Mr. P., agreed to come to Toronto in order to attend the din ner then given to Chief Justice Sir J. B. llole inson. In accordance with this mutual under standing Mr. G. took the steamer at Kingston the day before the dinner, expecting to find ids friend on board. But Mr. P. was not there nor was he in Toronto when the other arrived. Mr. G. felt angered ami aggrieved at Mr. I*, for disappointing him, and rushed to the tele graph office in this city and sent the following message to the absentee:—“You are a humbug, a delusion and a snare. Never believe you any more. Pay for this telegram, and lje thankful it is no worse.” Mr. P. paid for the message, but entered an action in the division court to recover the amount of it. The de fendant was called as a witness and admitted that he sent the message unpaid. lie submit ted* however, that the allegations contained in it were true, that he was justified in making them, and that if in so doing the plaintiff did any act which he w'as not obliged to do, such as paying for the telegram, he could not be held responsible. The judge thought the de fence set up was no justification aud gave judgment for the plaintiff for 50 cents, the doleful countenance of the defendant indica ting that he considered himself an ill-used in dividual.

No lire wood will be conveyed bet ween October 1st. 1862. and May 1st, 1863. An advance in the rates of fire wood will take place next summer, but in consequence of changes in the arrangement for conducting the wood business, which are about to be made, the Company will not be able to take tire wood from certain place* on the line, so that should any parties make contracts for tire wood to be carried on the railway during the next season, they must understand that they wilido so at their own risk, aud that the Company will not feel themselves bound to carry it. Due notice will be given of the rate* of freight, and from what stations tire wood can be carried next t summer. C. J. RRYDfiES, Managing Director. Montreal, Angust 1. 1862. a6dtf PLEASURE PARTIES.
