Virirtni LAWS.— We would call the peeial attention of Poet Hart err an-J subscribers to the Isqctasa to the following synopsis of the Sews p&per laws : 1. A PoitmMter is required to give notice by •etter , (returning a paper doe. l * not answer the law) when a subscriber aoee not take bis paper out of the ofica, and state the reasons tor its not being taken; and a neglect to do so makes tbe Postmas ter rep#*aibU to the publishers for tbe payment. 2* Anv person who take? a paper from the Post office, whether directed to his name or another, or whether be has eubecribed or not is responsible for the paj. 3. !f a person orders his paper discontinued, he must pay all arrearage*, or the publisher uaay continue to send it until payment is made, and oliect the whole amount, whether it be taken from the office or not. There can he no legal discontin ueace until the payment is made. 4. If tbe subscriber orders his paper to be stopped at a certain time, and tbe publisher con t u>ues to send, the subscriber is bound to pay for it. if he take* it out of the I*"*t Ojfice. The law prv>e*ed upon the ground that a man must pay for ehat.he u^ea. i. The courts have decided that refusing to tka newspapers and periodicals trjm tbe Post office, or removing and having them uncalled for, is prima facia evidence of iLtentiunal fraud. ATTORNEYS AT LAW.

What first I want is daily bread And canvass-backs —and wine— And all tbe realms of nature spread Before roe, when I dine. Four courses scarcely can provide My appetite to quell) With four choice cooks from Fruute beside, To dress my dinner well. What next I want—at princely cost — Is elegant attire!

Home's not merely four square walls, Though hung with pictures nicely gilded; Home is where affection calls, Filled with shrines the heart hath builded. Home go watch the faithful dove. Sailing 'neath the heavens above us; Home is wbere there's one to love, Home is where there's one to love us. Home's not merely root and room: Home needs something to endear it; Home is where tbe heart can bloom — Where there s some kind heart to cheer it ! What is home with none to meet? None to welcome, none to greet us? Home is sweet, and onlt sweet, When there's one ice lore to meet us. pbcellmuims. ■TSTEBIE' OA l ilt: NEWSPAPER PRESS. The Tribne and Hour it is Made —lts j Manager and his Assistants. Here we are at the door of the editoiial; room. Step within this little entry, and i snap a small fpring fitted into the side of the door casing. Before the distant tinkle of the feeil dies away little Jonny Wein heinier. the office boy, opens the door, and j throws a auspicious glace at us from his black eyes. We are in the City Editor's room. The walls are covered with maps. A perpendicular viaduct, for communica tion between the counting, editorial and composing rooms, with speaking pipes, copy boxes, aud bells, runs from the low cealing through the centre of the room, like the succulent branch of a banyan tree. A . small library of books relating to city affairs leans against the viaduct. A water pail and a tin jar of ice water occupies one cor ner of the room, i'asie puts and inkstands are scattered over the desks in lazy eonfu aion. Bits of blotting paper and scores of rusty looking steel pens are strewn about the tables. A dozen reporters are seated at a dozen small green desks. Some are wri ting, a few are reading, and two are smok ing brierwood pipes. The most conspicu ous reporter in the room is Col. James B. Mix, a man of magnificent physique, and a genuine Broadway lounger. He is dressed in exquisite ta-te, wears eye glasses, black side whiskers, and a moustache, and has a countenance that would create a sensation at a Sorosis dinner. A small but stout built man. with a rosy face and intelligent gray eyes, ia >lr. Barclay Gallagher, the Assistant City Editor. He has ri-en to his present position from the composing room. Zebulon White, with the pale face of a col lege student, is writing up a real estate re port Robert W. McAlpine, formerly an editor on the Philadelphia /Vets and the : Washington Chronicle—a .-mouth faced man, who might easily be taken for an interpret : er for the Chinese Embassy —is busily dash ing off a New York Ittter for a prominent Western journal. George W. Ptarce, the i police reporter, a rosy compleiiuned, blue eyed little gentleman, who seems as spry as a circus rider, is hurriedly dashing off an "Immense Robbery in Wall street," stop ping suddenly to perpetrate a joke, and then growling at the late hours assigned hitn at police headquarters. Quinian, a thin, ebon eyed, black moustached reporter, is accusing Meeker, to active, smooth laced boy, fresh 1 from the prairies of Illinois, of borrowing his paste pot, and Ralph, in a nasal twang, | is retoitine by a counter accusation, iovolv ! ing the loss of a pair of scissors. Thatcher, the weather man, the successor of the sage | of Brooklyn Heights, enters the door, and i in response to numerous questions, decides I that it will rain within forty hours. The Professor is an old man of about fifty-five, ' dressed in a seedy, snuff colored suit,' wear ing a rnsty high hat, and a heavy soled pair of shoes. For twenty five years he has run the telescope business during the dead hours of the night in front of St. Panl'a Church. *'Eh? Mr. Young ? Yes, sir; he's here, BEDFORD, PA., FRIDAY. DEC. 4- 1868. D'ye want to see in? ' replied Jonny Wt inheimer, iu answer to our inquiry. "Certainly, if he U disengaged. "I'll tell you iu a second.' Jonny peeps thrpugh a small hole in the ground glass of the door to Young a room, then darts back to a match, safe hanging at out side, and pulls therefrom two square , slips of'letier paper. "Please write your naute on this paper or, if you ve got your cards with you, they 11 do jis as well. I'll take eta in to Mr. Young." ... , Our cards go in, and :n ten seconds we are ushered into the presence of the Manag ing Editor of the Trilntne. \ou glance at John Bassel Young, and then gaze back at Jonny, as if you thought he was perpetra ting a joke at our expense. What! this : blue eyed boy the Managing editor of tbe most influential journal in America! You ; can hardly believe it. In personal appear ance Mr. Young is the most insignificant person about the office. He is light cotn plexioncd. has a large, sloping head, thatch ; ed with brown hair, a clear forehead, and a pr ininent nose, and is as quick of motion as as| anowhawk. He is of medium height, say five feet eight. His words flow from his lips in rapid succession, as if each one was struggling to get out of his mouth ahead of ; the other. And this man has fli.-hed upon the journalists of New \ ork iike a literary comet. Twelve years ago he was a printer s devil: when South Carolina sprouted into secession he was a reporter in Philadelphia; I one year more found him a dramatic critic on the Washington Chronicle, six years ago he was the Managing Editor of the Phila delphia I'resr, two years after this he was with Gen. Banks during the Bed river ex pedition; next we find him an agent of Jay Cooke's in 7.30 times. While at this busi ness, in his leisure hours, he wrote editori ! als for the Tribune. They were unusually spicy and argumentative, attracieu the at ;.ention of Mr. Greely and Sidnev Howard Gay, and now that printer's devil is a news paper autocrat —the peer of Statesmen and a potent power in the land. At first sight he appearscommonplace, but when you talk with him, and partly fathom the depth of that wonderful blue eye, and the decisive cut of the nose aod mouth, you recognize an impress of a peculiar intellectual vitality, a fertility of resource, a quickness of compre hension, and a nervous energy, that stamp him as a steam engine among newspaper men. His attire is neat, but not foppish. He wears one of those little round topped hats, with a small, circular rim, and this in creases his boyish appearance. His room is lined with books of reference. Bionze stat ues and lively colored chromos occupy va rious positions in tbe room. Young writes by spasms. He pays strict attention to the business details of the office. Every letter, every bill, every rejected communication is filed. He is able to furnish, at a moment s notice, a filed voucher for every cent of ex penditure during his administration. Such strict attention to bu.-iness requires a vast \ amount of time. But when a great nation a! emergency ari.-es, especially during the absence of 11. G., he throws himself into the , broach with a characteristic energy, and tbe columns of the Tribune are red hot with his short, sharp, ringing sentences, until the storm has passed. His were the stinging editorials on the Philadelphia Convention, his were the columns of invective poured over the Impeachment renegades, his were the fierce attacks upon the far-born move ment to nominate Grant before the General had defined his position, and his are the showers of sarcasm launched upon John T. Hoffman. The phrase "Impeachment is Peace," is Young's; so are the words Let us have Peace." He it was who called Grant "a sashed and girded sphynx." He it wu who wrote the brilliant book reviews i on Buchanan's '"Defence of his Adminis- j tration," Greeley's "American Conflict," and Richardson s "Life of Grant." There j are no lazy hairs in his head; each one seems j to be inspired with electric energy. As Butler was the author of the "Contraband,'' applied to the slaves of rebels, so is Young i the author of tbe word "Copperhead," as! applied to the members of the Democratic ; party. While we are conversing the boy brings in a dozen cards. First we have General But- | ler. Out he goes, and i?ig. Blitz appcarg; then follows John Allen, "The Wickedest Man," with Oliver Dyer at his side; next comes the Rev. O. B. Frothingham. and after him Robert Dale Owen, both editorial scribblers of the Tribune', Billy Edwards, the pugilist, is bowed out, and Max Maret- | Zrk appears; Gov. Ward, of New Jersey, pays his respects, and Kate Field follows suit —ail having business with this boy. And a lively cirne they make of it for this \ blue-eyed boy. lie may thank his lucky stars that he has a cottage at Spuyten Duy- | vel, to which he can retreat when overbur- ; deoed with the cares of office. Young is a strict disciplinarian. He runs 1 the editorial department like a machine.— Every cog strikes its groove with punctual regularity. When h i* absent his duties . fall cu Mr. John R. G. Hassard. If Has sard is missing. Mr. Amos G. Cum ruing? takes the manager's chair, and so perfect j does everything jibe, that if all the editors; were absent the oldest reporter, like the senior sergeant of a company destitute of j commissioned officers, would take charge. An editorial council is held in the Man aging Editor's room every day. between the hours of 1 and 2P. M. Mr. Young pre sides. Mr. I). C'. McEwcn, his private sec retary, a stenographer, and one of the witnesses in the impeachment trial, sits at his side. The editors are seated about the table. Mr. Hassard, a tall, straight gentle man, with a light complexiou, blue eyes, i regular features, sandy moustache, and side whiskers, and legs like those of President Lincoln, occupies a chair at Mr. Young's ' left. Mr. llas.-ard writes English as smooth as the music of a rippling brook, ami fre | quently dashes off an editorial article steep ed in an original solution of humor and sar casm. In addition to bis other duties, Mr. Hassard does the musical criticisms of the paper. Opposite him is Mr. Denslow, j formerly Managing Fditorof the Chicago liepuliiean. He ha.- a dark eye, a Napo leonic nose, and a black moustache. He is the only black-eyed editor in the office. His opinions are firm-set, and, though his edi torials occasionally conflict with the views of Mr. Greeley, they are marked with deep thought, and are carefully prepared. At , the right of Mr. Hassard is Prof. A. J. Schem, the foreign editor. He is a large* smootb-faocd German, with c-yesof imperial blue, and a bead broad and well balanced, i somewhat resembling portraits of Bismarck Tbe absence of a good growth of hair gives it the appearance of a polished egg plant, dead ripe. His eyes are full of ianguage. He has a happy faculty of catching an un conscious nap daring the composition of his editorials. Mr. Cummings, the City and and Political Editor, sits at the foot of the table opposite Mr. Young. He is a pale, thin, blue-eyed man of a nervous-sanguine temperament, and eternally at work. Dur ing the editorial councils he listens with deep interest, and fills in the interstices of time by drawing strange characters on the paper before him. Originally a Douglas Democrat, he now believes in God and Horace Greclev. On his right is Mr. N. C. Meeker, the successor of Solon Bobin-on io tbe agricultural department. Mr. Meeker is a thin, spare man, of an olive complexion with light blue eyes, and a farmer's face, hauds, and dress. His desk is usually covered with patent rat traps, pumpkin seeds, corn shellers, fancy potatoes, wash ing machines, crab apples, cucumber bug killers, and similar vegetables aud contrivan ces Next to Mr. Meeker we find Clarence Cook, the terror of artists and engravers. So trenchant are his criticisms that artists bave been known to run from him on the street as they would at the sight of a mad dog. Last of all at the table we find Mr. Whitelaw Beid, of Cinciunati, the latest ad dition to the force. He looks like Theodore Tiltm, with his l angular points rubbed off. And this is the "Staff" of tbe Tribune. When ail are seated Mr. Y'oung nervously dances around his desk for forty seconds, and then dumps on the table a basket piled with manuscripts, memorandums and news paper clippings. Each editor is then asked for his report of the previous day's labor, after which suggestions from every one present are in order. The meeting is then dismissed, with the vo. 's; "The 'Crib, would lo" very well to-da were it not for the poor quality ot the paper tad the infiar .al press work. I believe the ink is stiff. We must bave book ink. Mr. Greeley will write the leader to morrow morning, gentlemen. If he dont, I will, That's all." The editors pass out the door, through the city apartment into the main editorial room, and drift to their desks. In ten min utes a half dozen pens are vigorously scratch ing out ideas for the next day's issue. The child is in embryo, and will be born in the morning. Everything will move with the regularity of clock work. Ihe editorial room resembles a lurking place for owls; tbe ceil ing is low, tbe floor is dirty: a dozen rickety cane-bottomed arm-chairs, with high backs, three cases, filled with books of reference, ten old desks, sputtered with ink, two cab inets, a chain, d copy of the Tribune Al manac, complete, and a dozen old pictures, gives an idea of a rushing business, with an oceaisonal dash at the fine arts. Let us look at the cabinet adjoining Cuni miogs's desk. In the bottom drawer of this cabinet we find a series of carefully written obituaries of distinguished live men, all arranged alphabetically, and in charge of Dr. Wood. Tbey are curiosities in their way. Here is a bulky one, as thick and as long as your arm. It is "Peter Cooper. " Here is a second—a Liliputian roll, small enough to go into a needle ea.-e. YY e find this labelled "The Life of Waiter. White man." These obituaries are found valua ble when the news of a celebrated person's death is received at an early hour in the morniog. One word right here about editoriai life in New York; A New York journalists never calls on distinguished politicians or littera teurs at their hotels. They do this in Phila delphia, Boston, Cincinnati, Chicago, St. Louis, and New Orleans, but they don't do it here. Mahomet must come to the mountain, for the mountain will not go to Mahomet. This is entrenous. Some people think and say that Greeley is the Tribune and that the Tribune is Greeley, There may be 9ome truth in the expression. But one thing is certain, the stockholders of the Tribune are aware of Mr. Greeley's value. They have had his life insured for from $50,000 to SI<K),IXK) many years. Mr. Greeley is paid s<,ooo a year for his services. This with his divi dend of the profits of the establishment, makes quite a snug sum. lie also writes for a dozes magazines and weekly net sapers, bes.de uecasionallv throwing off t book and tnak >g strain politico' speeches and lectures. One day you will hear of him speaking at a Grant meeting at Somerviile, N. J.; the next day he will arraign the De mocracy at Ilouesdale, Penn.. next you will hear of him at a temperance meeting iD New York city; on the day following he wilj speak before some tariff association: theo before some agricultural society and will top off the week with an address before the Grant and Colfax Club at Chabbaqua, his residence. And ad the time he keeps end up on the editorial page. Greeley, with out doubt, is to day the hardest working newspaper man in New \orkcity. FIFTEEN FOLLIES. First—To think that the more a man eats the fatter and stronger he will become. Second—To believe that the more hours children study at school the faster they learn. Third—To conclude that if exercise is good for the health, the more violent and exhausting it is the more good is done. Fourth—To imagine that every hour taken from sleep is an hour gained. Fifth—To act on the presumption that the smallest room in the house is large enough to sleep in. Sixth—To argue that whatever remedy causes one to feel immediately better is "good for" the system, without regard to more ulterior efftcts. The "soothing syr up," for example, does not stop the cough of children, and does arrest diarrhea, only to cause, a little later, alarming convulsions, or the more fatal inflamation of the brain, or water on the brain, at least, always portraits the disease. Seventh —To commit an act which is felt in itself to be prejudicial, hoping that somehow or other it may be done in your case with impunity. Eighth—To advise another to take a remedy which you have not tried on your self, or without making special inquiry whether all the conditions are alike. Ninth—To eat without an appetite, or continue to eat after it has been satisfied, merely to gratify the taste. Tenth—To eat a hearty supper for the pleasure experienced during the brief time it is passing down the throat, at the expense of a whole night of disturbed sleep, and a weary waking in the raoroing. Eleventh—To remove a portion of the clothing immediately after exercise, when the most stupid drayman in New York knows that if he does not put cover on his horse the moment he ceases work in winter, he will lose him in a few days by pneumo nia. Twelfth—To contend that because the dirtiest children in the street, or in tbe high way, are hearty aud healthy therefore it is healthy to be dirty; forgetting that contin uous exposure to the pure outdoor air in joyous, uhre-trained activities, is such a powerful agency for health, that those who live thus arc well, in spite of rags and filth. Thirteenth —To presume to repeat later in life, without injury, the indiscretions, exposures, and intemperances which iu the flush of youth were practiced with impunity. fourteenth—To believe that warm air is necessarily impure, or that pure, cold air is necessarily more healthy than the confined air of close and crowded vehicles; the latter, at the most, can on'y cause fainting and ! nausea, while entering a conveyance after | walking bri.-kly, lowering a window, thus, ! while still, being exposed to a draft will give a cold infallibly, or an attack of pleurisy or pneumonia which will cause weeks and months of suffering, if not actual death within four days. Fifteenth—To "remember the Sabbath day" by working harder and later on Saturday than on any other day in the week, with a view to sleep late the next morning, and staying at home all day to rest, conscience being quieted by the plea of not feeling very well.— Hall's Journal of I Health. Horace Greeley. Bichard Grant YY'hite has an article in the December number of The Galaxy upon Mr. Greeley's Autobiography, in which he says: Horace Greeley has grown wonderfully, even since we who are his juniors, and who yet are mature men, have known him through his writings; aud the mass of his readers have grown with him. Like some schoolmasters, be has kept only a lesson ahead of bis scholars, learning to-day what he taught to-morrow. But do not all teach ers so? The difference between any of them and him is that he has printed his daily exercise, and called it "The New Y'ork Tribune." Hence what are called the vagaries and the vacillations of that paper. They are merely the visible self recorded efforts of a man who tries now this, now that mode of attaining oce end; and who says on one day, I have found the way, come walk with me in it. and on another, No, this is the road, follow; and who is followed. Mr. Greeley tells a story of himself that is full of significance. One day at Cha rnounix bis wife undertook with her child ren to reaeh the Glacier des Boissons, which he says seemed hardly a mile from the hotel. She lost her way, and was obliged to hire a peasant woman to pilot her back to the hotel, and carry one of the fagged out children. 3lr. Greeley laughed at her, and volunteered to lead the party the next morniDg straight up to the glacier ''so that they might put their hands oa it. * "But. j he says , "on trying it, I failed miserably. ' i This is not the only dazzling point that has j seemed to him hardly a mile off. and to which he has offered to lead people—wo men and children —so that they might put their hands on it to morrow, and on trying it has failed miserably. In which he is but like all the rest of us; the wise, like you, reader, and the foolish, like—one who shall be nameless. But we do not make our ef forts, as well as our promises in print, on ' paper, which, before the ink is well dried, is under the eyes of fifty thousand readers. ! florace Greeley, however he may have failed to do all that he sought to do, has come nearer to the attainment of his pur pose than most reformers do during their lives. The country owes him much; and one of its debts it will ere long acknowl edge—does in some sort now acknowledge. For if it be to him in a great measure that we owe the agitation which produced the . late rebellion, and if in the course of that great commotion he offered, once or twice, to lead us whither we and he wished to go, and failed miserably, yet to him we owe, in at least ss great a measure, the develop ment cf that spirit which resisted secession as well as slavery, and in the end, nndcr more practical guidance than his, left us i citizens of a great, free, and united country. Twenty-five years ago the popular strength and spirit which carried the Government -afely through our tremendous political | convulsion was as lacking as the moral i firmness that withstood the spread of ■ slavery; and the growth of the former, no less than that of the latter, among the far j tners and the artisans of the Free States, is I largely due to the teachiog and the in fluence of Horace Greeley. ANECDOTE OF WHITE FIELD. When Mr. Whitefield was preaching on one occasion at Plymouth, he lodged with Mr. Kinsman, a minister of the town. Af-. ter breakfast on Monday, he said to his ! friend, "Come, let us visit some of your poor people. It is not enough that we la- j bor in the pulpit; we must endeavor to be j useful out of it." On entering the dwell-; ings of the afflicted poor, he administered to ! their temporal as spiritual wants. Mr. Kinsman, knowing the low state of his Seances, was surprised at his liberality, and suggested that he thought he had been too bountiful. Mr. Whitefield, with some de gree of smartness, replied; ''it is not enough young man, to pray, and put on a serious face. True religion, and undefiled, is this to visit the widow and the fatherless in | their affliction, and to supply their wants. My stock, it is true, is nearly exhausted: but God, whom I serve, and whose saints we have assisted, will, 1 doubt not, soon give me a supply." flis hopes were not disap pointed. A stranger called on him in the evening, who addressed him thus ; With great pleasure I have heard you preach; you are on a journey, as well as myself, and traveling is expensive. Do me the honor to ; accept this," at the same time presenting j him with five guineas. Returning to the family, Mr. Whitefield, smiling, held out the money in his hand, saying. "There, ! young man, God has speedily repaid what I bestowed. Let this in future, teach you Dot to withhold what it is in the power of yonr hand to give. The gentleman to whom I was called is a perfect stranger to me; his only business was to give me the sum you ! see." VOL. 41: NO. 46 ODD LAND. There is genuine wit in the following des cription of Holland, taken from "Hans Brinker, or the Silver Skates." It is a lit tie piece of characterization worthy of Irving or any of our best writers: Holland is one ot the queerest countries under the sun. It should be called Odd land, or Contrary land, for iu nearly every j thing it is d.fierent from other parts of the world. In the first place a large portion of the country is lower than the level of the sea. Great dykes, or bulwarks, have been erec ted at a heavy cost of money and labor to keep the ocean where it belongs. On cer tain parts of the coast it sometimes leans with all its wetght against the laud, and it is as much as the poor country ean do to staud the pressure Sometimes the dykes give way, or spring a leak, and the most disastrous results ensue. Tbey are high and wide, and the tops of some of them are covered with buildings and trees, They have even fine public roads upon them, from 1 which horses may look down upon wayside j cottages. Often the keels of floating ships are higher than the roofs of the dwellings. ; The stork, clattering to her young on the 1 bousepeak, may feel that her nest is lifted far out of danger, but tbe croaking frog in j neighboring bulrushes is nearer the stars ! than she. Wayrbagß dart backward and : forward over the heads of the chimney i swallows; and willow trees seem dropping with shame because they cannot reach as j high as tie reeds near by. Ditches, canals, ' ponds, rivers and lakes are every where to ! be 3een. High, but not dry, they sbinc in j the sunlight, catching nearly all the bustle . and the business, quite scorning the tame j fields stretching, damp, beside them. One is j tembted to ask "Which is Holland—the shores or the water ?" The very verdure j that should be confined to tbe laud has j made a mistake and settled upon tbe fish j pouds. In fact, tbe entire country is a kind j of saturated sponge, or, as the poet (.Butinrj ! called it, — "A land that rides at anchor and is moor'd, la which they do not live, but go aboard." l'ersons are born, to live and die. and even have their gardens on canal boats. Farm houses. with roofs like great slouched hats pulled over their eyes, stand on wooden legs : with a tucked up sort of air, as if to say, "We intend to keep dry if we can." Even the horses wear a wide stool on each hoof to i lift them out of the mire. In short, the j landscape everywhere suggests a paradise ; for ducks. It is a glorious country iu sum mer for bare-footed girls and boys. Such wadings! Such mimic ship sailing! Sucb ! rowing, fishing and swimming I Only ' think of a chain of puddles where one can launch chip boats all day long, and never : make a return trip ! But enough. A full recital would set all Young America rush ing in a body toward the Zuyder Zee. I WISH 1 HAD CAPITAL. So we heard a great strapping young man exclaim the other day in an office. We did j want to give him a peiceof our mind so bad; and we'll just write to him. You want cap ital do you ? And suppose you bad what you call capital what would you do with it ? You want capital? Haven't you hands and brains, and don't you call them capital? i What more capital did Gok give any body? j "Oh, but they are not monev," you say. But they are more than inoney," and no body can take them from you. Don't you know how to use them? If you don't it's time you were learning. Take hold of the first plow, or hoe, or jack plane, or broad axe that you can find, and goto work. Your ; capital will soon yield a large interest. Ay, i but there's the rub! You don't want to j work; you want credit, that you may play I gentleman and speculate and end by play i ing vagabond. Or you want a plantation with plenty of hirelings upon it to do the work, while you run over the country and dissipate; or want some rich girl who may be foolish enough j to take you for your good looks, that she \ may support you. Shame on you man! Go to work with the capital you have, and you'll soon make interest enough upon it to give you as much money as you want and make you feel like a man. If you want to make money or can't make money on what capital you have, you could not tuake it if you Lad a million of dollars in money. If yen dor, t know how to use bone and muscle and brains you would not know bow to use gold. If you let the capital you have lie idle, and waste and rmt out, it would be the same with you if you had gold; youwould only know how to waste it. Then don't stand about idle, a great help less child waiting for somebody to come in and feed you, but go to work. Take the first work you can find no matter what it is, so that you may do it well. Yes, whatever you undertake do it well; always do your best. If you manage'thc capital you already have, you will soon have plenty more to manage; but if you can't or won't manage the capital God has given you, you will never have any other to manage. Do you hear that young taan ? GO TO SLEEP EARLY. Many children, instead of being plump and fresh as a peach, are as withered and wrinkled as last year's apples, because they dn not sleep enough. Some physicians think that the bones grew only during sleep This I cannot say, certainly; but I do knot* that those litt'e folks who sit up late at nights are usually nervous, weak, small, and sickly. The reason you need more sleep than your parents is because you bave to grow, and they do not. They can use up the food they eat in thinsing, talking, and working, while you should save some of yours for growing. You ought to sleep a great deal; if you do not, you williu activity consume all you eat, and have none, or not enough to grow with. \ ery few smart children excel, or even equal, other people . when they grow up. Why is this? Because i their heads, if not their bodies, are kept too j busy; so that they cannot sleep, rest, and j grow strong in body and brain. N'ow, when ; your mother says, Susie or Georgia, or whatever your name may be, it is time to go to bed do not worry her by begging to sit up "just a little longer." But hurry off to I your chamber, remembering that you have a great deal of sleeping and growing to do to make you a healthy, happy, useful man ! or woman.

In this case you bring this cumbrous body, which is worth nothing, and which you would not wish to retain loDg; you lay it down, and receive for it, from the eternal treasury, liberty, victory, knowledge, rap ture. — Foster. A Tbimtt QCACU having STOP pod at a tavern to get a pot of beer, and observing that the measure was defioiant, asked the landlord how many casks he drew in a month. "Ten," was the reply. "And would'st thou not like to draw eleven, my friend?" "Yes. "Then I'll tell the how: fill thy measure*. A GENTLEMAN asked a clergyman the use of his pulpit for a young divine. "I really do not know," said the clergyman, "how to refuse you; but if the young man can preach better than I can. my oongrea tiou would be dissatified with me afterwards, and if he should preach worse, I don't think he's fit to preach at all."
