A presentable dish 5
Bet here are »w«*#,a/«m*r see,

My leek of late has been eo bad,
That I, who caught so mnny,
Now think myself supremely blew,
That I have netted any." * '
“|Ti» even «bf” replied the nymph,
. •• book ntthy broken tackle;
No fish hut tprati and Jloundert, boy,
Will find thy not n shackle :
Tbv atm has lost its wonted strength,
Net* needest thou be told,
Thy net is much too slight for use,
Unless its links were gold.”
The sod look’d grave“ come now,” cri’d she,
“Til weave thy net afresh,
And sea if any living thinij,
Resists my golden mnskr-7
Depend upon it, fish will bile.
In spite of wind or weather,
If thou will only throw in nets
Which I have wove together."
And so-it prov’d—Love fish’d away,
At ebb and flow of tide.
And user drew a plenteous store,
When Fortune’s nets were ply’d;
Rut if by chance, through vanity,
He chose his own light red,
The fish would nibble, break away,
And disappoint the god.
Genius rushes like a whirlwind—Talent
Marches like a cavalcade of heavy men and
heavy horse*—Cleverness skims like a
swallow in a summer evening, with a sharp
note and a sudden turning. The man of
goaius dwells with nature; the man of ta
lent in h>» study; but the clever man
dances here and there, and every where,
like a butterfly in a hurricane, striking eve
tty thing and enjoying nothing, but too
fight to be dashed to pieces. The man oi
talent will attack theories—the clever to an
will assail the individual and slander pri
vate character. But the man of genius
despiseth both, he heeds none, hollars
none, and walks forth an example1, that
" eagles fly alone,—they are but sheep
that herd together.” It is true, that
should a poisonous worm crose'liis path,
he may tread it under his foot; should a
cur snarl at him he may chastise it; but he
will not, cannot attack the privacy of an
other. Clever men write verses, men of
talent write prose, but men of genius write
poetry.— Wilson’s Lectures on Poetry.
Fetch the Doctor.—The late lamented
Dr. Baillie was allowed to be the most at
tentive man to his patients in the profes
sion ; but nothing annoyed him so much
as to be sent for to attend to trifles or fan
cied illness. He was called one evening
*to attend Lady H-: he immediately
repaired to the house and found the Lady
in apparent good health. The doctor,
however, prescribed a gentle opiate, evi
dently endeavoring to conceal his chagrin,
and then made his rotreat; but he had
scarcely reached the bottom of the stairs
when Miss H—— called from above,
" Dr. Baillio, pray may mamma eat oys
ters for supper l” “ O dear, yes, Miss,”
was the reply, “ shells and all, if she pleas
es.” —
The First Oath*— My lads, said a cap*
thin, when reading his orders to the crew
' on the quarter deck, to take the command
' of a ship, there is one law 1 am deter*
$£■ mined to make and I shall insist upoti its
being kept j indeed it is a favor which I
f nsk of you, and which, as a British officer,
I expect will be granted by a crew of Brit
ish seamen. What say you, my lads, are
you willing to grant your new captain one
favor 1 Aye, aye, cried all hands, let’s
know what it is, sir. Well, my lads, said
the captain, it is this; that you must allow
me to swear the first oath in this ship.—
No man on board must swear an oath be
foro I do} I am determined to have the
privilege of swearing the first oath on
board. What say you my lads, will you
grant me this favor 1 The men stared,
and stood for a moment quite at a loss
what to say. They were taken, says one,
' all a-hsck.' They were brought up, says
another * all standing.' The captain reit
erated : Now, my fine fellows what do you
say s am I to have the privilege of swear
the captain so kind and prepossessiog, that
a general burst from the ship’s company
announced, Aye, aye, sir, with their ac
customed three cheers. The effect was
good—swearing was wholly abolished in
the ship.—English pa.

The follotoing are from among* the numerous
testimonials in favor of the work which have al
I ready appeared:
We consider Dr. Webster ns eminently qualified to
prepare a work of this kind. His extensive acquain
tance with the early history of nations, mid especially
our own—the result of fifty years of investigation—is
the best pledge for the accuracy of his statements;
while the personal knowledge of the events of our re
volution mid the establishment of our government,
Riyes a freshness and interest tu his narrative, which
are rarely if ever to be found in the pages of a mere
compiler. We therefore cordially recommend this
work, ns udapted to general use in families & schools.

Messrs. Durrie & Peck—I have taken some pains
to acquaint myself with the character of Dr. Webster's
" History of the United States.” It is, in my opinion,
a work of great merit, and admirably adapted to the
purposes nliko of our public and private sehnsls. It
will nut injure the reputation of its illustrious author.
1 shall immediately recommend it to the Visiting Com
mittee lor adoption into the higher classes of tlitf'Lnn
caslcrian School. Yonrs respectfully,
Principal of the Lancastrian school.
The Committee nf the School Society in New-IIa
ven have concluded to introduce Webster’s History of
tho United Slntesinto the Lancasierian school, and to
recommend its use in the other schools in the New
Ilnven School Society, ns a useful and concise com
pend of history, well adapted for juvenile histrnclion.
The volume contains ninny facta not contained its
any other History, and as y school Imok lias the advan
tage of combining at onre, with the exercises of the
schools, a knowledge of our country and its institu
tion*.—Co/m. Herald.
Tho work will not fail to meet with n welcome re
ception whenever it is seen.—N. Haven Palladium.
From the Rev. T. Marsh, Into Rector of 8t. Michael’s
Church, Litchfield.
This certifies, that I have perused “ A History nf
the United States,” written by Noah Webster, LL. D.
It is well calculated to benefit the rising generation.
It gives an intuitive and correct view ol the most im
portant events unending the discovery and history uf
North Amerien. It is adapted to the wants, capacity
and taste of youth. 1 hope it may find a place ia eve
nt library, and especially in our High and Common
Schools. The purity of ns.style, and the correctness
of its facts, must plouse every patron of science, and
every friend of virlne and humanity. DocL Webster
was the first man who succeeded ia uiieatptiog to an
alyse or parse the English language. Ha has dona
more to explain its true principles, to investigate its
peculiar idioms, to trace iM etymology, and banish its
corruptions, than any othsr|tPrson that ever livetL—
His name ought to be revered, and his philological
writings ought to be studied, by every classical scho
lar, and more especially by every American, who ia
disposed 10 pnirunixe learning, or encourage religion.

I hnve examined to some extent Dr. WehMer'a
History of the United Suites, and nm highly pteasgrt
both with the pkm and execution. While Tl is tnU
nently calculated lor the improvement of the youthful
mind in Common Schools, there is also much rafunble
information, both of historical fncls and philosophical
