Then laugh away, let others say Whate'er they will of mirth ; Who laughs the most, may truly boast He's got the wealth of earth. There's beauty in a merry heart, A moral beauty too; It shows the heart is an honest heart, That's paid each man his due, And lent a share of what's to spare, " Despite of wisdom's fears, And make the cheek less sorrow speak, The eye weep fewer tears. The sun may shroud itself in cloud, The tempest wrath begin,-' . It finds a spark to cheer the dark, , Its sunlight Is within 1 Then laugh away, let others say ' Whate'er they will of mirth ; Who laughs the most, may truly boast He's got the wealth of earth."

Milton's Fiery Lake, and the exquisite pleasures of Paradise are products of the imagination. By this faculty we view the coming future, and silently revel in bright visions painted by it. Before we engage in any laudable pursuit we look out into the future and picture out the road we intend to travel and the object we desire to occomplish. How silly is the person who starts out in this world to accomplish some great achievement, without first making a survey of what he is about to enter up on, or building air castles, as it is called. To him who has not erected one ot those magnificent buildings, but is carelessly passing through life, I would say, let him pause for a moment, consider where he is going, and mark well the paths he would tread through life. When the laborer has toiled faithful ly until night has closed the door, it is very pleasant for him to withdraw his mind from the burdens by which he is fatigued, and contemplate grander scenes. When the student has wearied and pondered over bis books nntil all is hushed by the silence of night, it is then sweet to cast them aside, let the thoughts of imagination take their sway, and the hoarded treasures of the mind burst forth in visions more sublime. As we draw nearer the close of life, we lose sight of the things of earth in visions ; our minds grapple and revel on the unknown beauties of eternity. By imagination we can wander back to the source of time and converse with succesive generations of men. By the pinions of imagination we can soar aloft where the eye has never penetrated ; where other stars glitter on the mantle of night, and the morning dawns by the rays of a brighter sun. Disctptjxo. "-' DIVISION OF LABOR. All vocations are respectable, and a man should be honored for the proficien cy he acquires in the position he fills. Therefore no station in society should be despised. The time has been when the ancestors of those who are at pres ent masters of the arts . and sciences, lived as do the savages of the present day. If this be true, much honor is due those who have raied man to his resent exalted station. Let us then consider who is entitled to the credit of this great work. Is it the farmer, the mechanic, the teacher, the . doctor, ' the statesman or the minister 1 or can the credit be given to any one profession, or have they all contributed to the accom plishment of this work 1 To answer this question we must look upon man, when, in his primitive state, he depend ed for subsistence upon the fruits of the chase, and mark how he has continual ly advanced to the present time. In the days of primal man, but little difference in the situation of man could be seen, yet some must have shown greater skill in fishing, hunting, etc., and that prac tice improved tbeir rude arts, and that a division of labor- was - advantageous. This must have been the reason why every man began to apply himself to some particular occupation. Hence arose the different professions in which men were eneaged, but one was not more honorable than another for one could not prosper w ithont the others. Thus each contnbu ted to the welfare of man kind, and as' time advanced, man was continually discovering new wants, as the division of labor was continually making men more skillful. Thus it is that man has acqu'red his present situa tion; not tnrougn any one profession or trade alone, for every department of la bor contributes its part for the benefit of others. Then since the farmer, ' the mechanic,- the doctor, the statesman, and the minister are all necessary for the welfare, of. man, .they are all entitled to credit. Therefore, let eveiy young man choose that field of labor for which he is best qualified, and persevere, for every man can occupy some respectable place in society if he is so disposed. Uni rtroKUM.
