But honest worth, though coldly passed, Survives each devious fate ; An hour of triumph comes at last, 'Tis ever thus the struggling mind Musi gather In its store, 'Tis ever thus the noble find Their precious gems ol lore. For through experience must be cast The light divijHily great c. . r ' iAti hoiir of triumph come "at fast, ' ' 1 ' ' To those who work and wait.4, Tlitin, Father, God, to Thee I bend Ami hrcathe a silent prnyer, While ihy majestic emblems blend, Around me everywhere.

Self-command is enioined bv mo- iraliy, sanctioned by al( thel a'utboritv of ICHristiariity, and indispensably necessa ry to the Happiness of lite. It is a quali ty of (ner8i. apivistioi!j't enables us 'to exercise all our faculties and pow ers, both of body and mind, in a manner calculated to accomplish the best ends of life. j The province of self-command compre hends manners as well as morals; for, if we do not lay a proper restraint upon bur own will.

When the calm of retire ment succeeds to the bustle of company, bis solitary moments are embittered by very modifying reflections; for it has been well remarked, "that anger begins with follv and ends with reoeutauce."

A little altercation took place, which tempted one of them, a girl of an affec tionate but hasty temper, to call, her friend ty Ab'pIrxaQOk nMtieaAlA quarrel Was the ooiiseueuce,. liy h interposi tion, of fijuiid ft seeming" reconciliation was effeteod, The one ;who had been insultetlshook hands with the culprit, and forgave her as far as profession went. , But memory, too faithful to its ........ . language she heard. The other liad Spoken such dafreers as fixed an incura bio wound in the bosom of her alienated associate. 1 he one was rash, the other unrelenting; and friendrihip laments the extinction of its flame in bosom which once glowed with its purest and most ardent heat. From these anecdote., we learn to estimate the importance of self- commanri, witn respect to conversation, by remarking the fatal effects that may attend its absence.

This unfortunate servant had lived with the lady for many years, and was es teemed, among her other qualities, for er great careminess. A friend who was present, instantly anticipating what the lady's feelings of concern must be. ut tered some expressions of surprine at the accident, but not a single word of anger escaped the lips of the sen-ant's mistress. She bore her loss like a phi losopher, and one must be as great an Admirer of old china as she was. to be a judge of the sacrifice she made of her feelings to those of her domestic. We here see a distinguished instance of self command; and it would be as well if masters and mistresses always discrimi nated between accident and design in the conduct of servants. Self-command exercises its Tioblest of- fiee when it enables us to maintain the dignity of our nature as intelligent be ings, by establishing the empire of rea son over the passions. It renders a per son the master of himself under all the Various circumstances of life. In pros- f erity, cheerful, without insolence; and iradversity. resigned and calm, without Rejection, lit gives an effectual check to all the vicious propensities of envy, malice, anger; and, in the same propo'v tion as it restrains them, it encourages a growtu oifthe virtues, prevents them from running into extremes, and fixes heir due bfjunds.

A Reminiscence with a Moral. nqtieiching" a newspaper is, we sup pose, a rather exhilerating pastime. But it has its risks. iot many years ago, a newspaper mane iim u very aisagreeable to the (then) most powerful man in New York. It called out "Watch!" and "Stop thief!" and the like. It dealt in the plainest and most brutal Saxon., It took a drugged and snoring community by the shoulders and shook and pummeled ii into waKciuine. The most powerful man in New York resented this conduct very ' highly as was natural. It was given out that the offending newspaper would be "squelch ed" He had complete control of the city government. lie owned he Mavor, the Common Council, the army of minor officials, even a Judge or two. lie was the acknowledged head and autocrat of a great political organization. All the depraved and dangerous elements in so ciety recognized in him their natiiral leader. lie had immense power, im mense wealth, and immense personal fol lowing. Even among the respectable Classes, even among the bankers and im porters and merchant princes, there were found not a few to discredit the newspaper's charge; not a few to cen sure it as going too far, and indulging in unnecessary violence of language; not a few to charitablv insist that, after all the powerful man had done a good deal for the city; not a few to argue that he was a great deal too powerful to be unseated, and that it was very useless and ill-advised in a newsoaner to mk such a fuss. A drugged city, a lethar gic public sentiment,peevishfy mumbled a desire to be let alone. The prospect for a successful issue to the "annlr.li ing" experiment seemed excellent. Most of the other newspapers of the citv stood afar off, gleefully rubbing their nitiius m anticipation ot what was com ing, bome of them was in the powerful man s pay: others had not even that shameful excuse, but were governed simply by a mean and petty hatred of a business rival. . ., Notwithstanding all which. th New- York Times is stid published regularly at the old stand, and to all appearance. is enjoying very fair newspaper health ; wnue tne aaaress oi tne powerful man, at latest accounts, was "Penitentiary, Blackwell's Island." The verb "to squelch,y you see, has a passive voice a little circumstance which amateur con- Jugators are apt to forget, but which it is rumer important to remember. Of Growing Old. When are we irrowinir old? A sound judgment and strict honesty are neces sary to answer the question fairly to one's self. Here is what the "Countrv Parson" says of it: 'Jy growing old I understand reach ing a point midway between 40 and 60, not without a tendency to get nearer the latter age, onoe hardly imaginable as a personal reality.' . And when one has iu tins grave sense grown old. is there anv fact which is more pressed upon one than tbis: that there is suoh a long look back now? i The prospect stretches far. Memory is still keen and retentive, the distant prospect has not faded into mist ness; and as you ,: go on, and, now and then . turn to look back, , there is just so much added to your view Once it was wonderful to hear a man talk of what he had done twenty years ago; still more, . what . had happened thirty years ago; it seems a vast stretch of time, possible Indeed in the experi ence of others, but inoouceivable to one's own. . tor every human being is like Sidney's shepherdboy in this, that , he fails to take in that he will ever grow old. It seems yesterday - since the wri ter reading of the bar how,, much Eng lish law lost in him! diligently frequen ted Westminister Hall and the Guild hall and seeing vigorous barristers roar ing away to, common . juries,, or'gqing With a cross-examination in .which ;ey ery question began with the' sharp and minacious Now, sir! listen with wonder to the assurance that the vigorous bar rister has worn a wig and gown for five and twenty years or five and thirty years. , Surely he ought to be dead long ago. That was the reflection, then. It is different n,QW! , It has been discover ed that time passes away to the amount of twenty years or more; but . that is really a very short while;- and it leaves the human being not so much changed; and with the old likingn, hopes, and wishes; still with the old weaknesses and faults; still the same man. :. Fur thermore, as years" accumulate behind one, so does work. You have done such a deal. It mounts up to something aw ful to think of. And this though very much of the work done leaves. 7IQ per manent trace, hut just suffices to do what iti required by the day, and to keap the machinery going. You have writ ten fourteen letters this morning; you have visited fourteen sick folks this afternoon.

The conduct which an honest heart inspires flows naturally from it! And Inns, wha my murvk things, in order to convince others of uieir sincerity, give some reason to doubt of their being perfectly convinced of it themselves. Their conduct is per nicious to the peace and pleasure of so ciety, and may also be led to very fatal consequences. They do what they can i mgnien every one irom what is right. If sincerity then discovers such a heart, disguise must appear desirable. Few consider sufficiently how much the cause of virtue must suffer, whenever a good quality is made to appear in an unamiable light. . ' ' Sincerity is indeed the ground work of all that is good and valuable. "" How ever beau tiful in appearance the struct ure may be, if it stand not on this foun dation it cannot last. Bnt sincerity can hardly be called a virtue in itself, though a deviation from it is a fault. A man may be sincere in his vices, as well as in his virtues. Now, he- can throw off all remorse or shame, and even makes a boast of his vices, oan claim no merit from the sincerity he expresses in so doing. If he who ia sincere cannot ippear amiable, his heart is wrong, and h sincerity, faf from being a virtue, seema , only io add to the, rest of his faults, that of being willing to give pain to others, and able so throw aside the shame which ' wonld attend on every fault, whether great or small, and which is sometimes a restraint to such as are in capable of being influenced by nobler motives. A Great Flower Garden. , You have heard, of old bachelors' whims. There are lots of them on rec ord, but Henry Shaw, of St. Louis, haa given practical execution to the most remarkable bachelor's crotchet of the age. He is a Scotchman, a. millionaire, and some aeveuty-five years old. He has constructed the finest flower garden in the world.'' It has three hundred and fifty acres in it, and ie a gorgeous mar vel of a garden. It has all the flowers in it, obtainable in the world; that will live in St. Louis climate. It is a bewil dering paradise of floral beauty. The flowers number by i the millions. Its cost no . one. can telL . Shaw - himself don't know.. It is threaded by walks, and adorned with conservatories and hot-houses full of the rarest exotica.. , A force of one hundred gardeners is need ed to keep the place in order. ,. Shaw, it is said, spends his entire income from, his. millions, in keeping it up. He .be gan the thing after the war, aud for several years he has opened it to the public. Hundreds of thousands of vis itors resort to it. It ia the chief attrac tion and curiosity lor the stranger in St. Louis to visit. And : strange to say, no police guard it, and no Bowers are pUtered, This la the public's reverence tor the man's generous enterprise. I We visited the elegant house at . the head of the gardeu, where au elegant picture of Shaw represents him standing aiuoug his flowers, and two elegant por traits of beautiful ladies in the garb of a past day, representing some of bus fe male progenitors, A huge book is kept there for visitors to record thsir names iu. A curious feature of the garden is beds, devoted to one flower. For in stance, there is a large bed, with every variety of cactus: another with" hun dreds of yeibeitaA and so on. it is a curious nouon Uua, that prompts a rich man to devote a great income in' ' one pet caprice, aud that principally for the benefit of others. : But in this caprice, so unusual and so expensive, is wrapped up in nis own personal aspiration, i lie thus makes his celebrity. ' - ' j Shaw is uear his grave, i He has, in pursuance of his . ambition, willed his gardens to the itv, on condition . . that the city binda itsolf to, . keep them up.
