For de cision of character is by no means a necessary attendant upon genius.—On the contrary, there is frequently allied with it, a lender and even morbid sen sibility which is very apt to generate indecision, and to plunge its victim in to melancholy, despondency, and leth argy. Von will meet with frequent in stances in which this hold and hardy quality will giro to an interior mind the command over the superior. Na}', you will see :t among hoys, and even among girls at school. Tue leader ol their a inuscmeiits and ol all their little enter prizes—the individual, to whom all the rest instinctively look to give the word ol command, is frequently the inferior in point of genius to many of those who willingly obey that word. Tins phenomenon results entirely from su perior decision of character. And you may gather from tiie fact the useful les son, that if you wish, hereafter,*to have influence among your neighbours, you must acquire, now, this commanding decision of character to which weaker spirits willingly bow, and find even a relief in bowing to it, and obeying it. Gentlemen, this same quality will be one ol the best guardians ol youi vir tues. YVhy is it tiiat young men aro so often drawn oil from their studies and tempted to dissipation which their consciences condemn ? Jt proceeds Irom indecision of character. Thev have not the firmness to say “ No” to an improper proposal. They yield to the tempter and they call it good na ture and good Jclloieship. And they soon acquire such a habit of yielding, that temptation has only to shew her self in any form, to be followed, though she beckon them over a precipice.— What is the remedy for this ruinous fa cility of temper ? Decision of charac ter : that bracing and vigorous deci. sion, which, having once taken the correct course, is deaf to the siren voice of the tempter, and blind to her beauties. Thus, both in public and in private life; in the learned and the unlearned professions; in scenes of business, or in the domestic circle, the master qua lity of man is decision ol character. But you will not confound this deci sion, ol which 1 speak, either with ob stinacy, or with rudeness of manners. JNot will) obstinacy, because it is the character of obstinacy to persist in con scious error ; whereas it is the charac ter of decision to renounce an error the moment it become0 ~*'*nifest, and to re nounce it with equal promptitude and firmness. But it is not often that a de cided character is put to this humilita ting change. Because the first step has not been rashly hut wisely and de liberately taken ; because having been thus taken, it is not the mere difficulty of the execution that will induce a change , for all difficulties yield to a decided character; and, because it is only ihe development of alter ciicum stances which could not he taken into the first calculation, lhat demonstrates the error, and demands the change.— Indecision is the mere creature of ca price, ** a leather for every wind that blows, and is seen continually toss ing, in different and opposite currents Obstinacy resolves ignorantly, or rash ly* a,,d (to borrow a word from Doct. Johnson^ persists doggedly in error, a gainst the light of its own underst tnd iug. Decisio.i holds the middle course, and is the best earthly ally of wisdom and virtue. It is, indeed, the chief i’iXecutive officer of their high decrees. Nor will you confound decision, with rudeness of manners. There is not the slightest connection between them. Decision is calm and steady as the po lar star. She must he cool and dispas sionate, lor any perturbation would dis turb her course. Satisfied with the correctness of that course, she is no less serene than site is intense, and can smile at suggestions that would rullle into rudeness a character less firm.— We are apt to consider rough, - abrupt and urrogaut manners as the natural indications of firm and decided charac ter. Nothing is more fallacious.— i These manners are frequently the mere | cover for pusillanimity. Gentlemen, he assured, that there is nothing graceful, or courteous, or fascinating in address, that is not perfectly compatible with l the most manly firmness, ami even the best evidence of its existence. Nay you find this frequently, in its highest perfection in the softer sex. It is this that carries them through their arduous and, frequently, painful duties, with such undeviatiug steadiness, ami ena ble them to persist in the lofty course ol vntue wiili a constancy and dignity which put us often to the blush. Yet this quality does not make them rude. On the contrary, you find it in compa ny with meekness, patience, gentleness, and frequently with all that innocent gaiety ol heart, and spirited graceful ness of manner which diffuse enchant ment around them, wherever they go. With such bright and attractive exam ples before us, let it never he said that rudeness i* ihe’necessary concomitant of decision ol character.— Wirt. HUSBANDRY. Food for Cattle.—Every traveller who passes Alslelt, a little town be tween Frank fort and We me.r, remarks the beauty of the oxen employed in a giicultore in that nciglmrltood, and yet they arc only led on straw and roots, straw being the only (odder raised m , that |);i!t ol the country. It is j• r.q»;ii-1 ed as follows : The straw is cut very small by tin?! chafl’ cutter : it is then put him a cauldron, mixed with potatoes and carrots, and boiled '.ill it forms a km i of jelly. This mixed with a sufficient quantify of water, is served in due por tion to the beasts. The ammaD so fed require no water, and so well d<> they thrive on this tries--, tl^Athey are, notwithstanding the summt^Tabor, re i dy lor the butcher at the end of the year. Profitable Corns.— Dr. Samuel II. Woodward of Wethersfield, took the first premium recently at the Hartford exhibition of Cattle, for having produ ced two cows-, yielding, in butter, i tnilk, &c. the. following result, from the Doctor’s statement : In May, 110 llis.2 oz ; June |(>s llis. ll <>z.; July, 73 lbs ; August, sq lbs.

Oil the first of September, another cow was added, which including vvliat was made last week in April, to wit, 21 lhs. would make 597 lbs. 9 oz. tn six months. Besides all this, milk and cream, have been sold to the amount of $3, and a family of 10 persons ‘urnished with tnilk and cream worth at least $1 a week, at 4 cents a quart and pork fed to the amount of at least $1. Nut a pound of butter was sold for less than one shilling per pound. ^ Butter $100 M'lk, &,c. sold, 3 Milk used in the tamily 20 Pork, 15 $144 The cows were fed on grass only af ter the middle of May, before which lime they had rowen hay two quarts of meal a day. One cow is six years old, the other five years—one is half blood Devonshire, the other common stock. The calves from these cows sold in the spring for $15 75 144 00 Whole product, $159 75 Sugar Cane in Maryland. — A tine stalk of sugar cane, 4 ir.chesiu circum ference, and moic than four teet high, was brought to our office, Irom Prince George’s county, who planted one or two hundred canes !>v way of experi ment, in May last. The cane wb-ch we saw, appeared to he well rip'r - ed, the juice abundant and sweet, air to all appearance as fine, we under stood, as it it bad been the product of Louisiana. Its maturity is not alone evidence of the extreme mildness <d our present autumn, but shews also we think, that the plant i« susceptible of being acclimated in latitudes much higher than th'»: e t » which its culture has been hitherto confined.— National fnfrl. ErJranrdi n ary Cabbage.—.1 a bez II. Hammond, has a cabbage in his possession, and ready to be shown, that j has 2\ good hard heads, that grew to 1 one stump, and sprung from one seed. He thinks that this heats the Cow Cabbage.

Grating Xutnjros.—'Y^c centre of a nutmeg is composed chiefly of a mass of fibre# united and held together at the stem end. If grated first at the end, they are cut off at the point of union and thus liberated so that they come out and make the nutmeg hollow ; hut ii grated at the otherend, they continue to he held firmly in their place and the nutmeg consequently remains sound.— ^ T'Otirlon IForticulturnl Society.— There were exhibited at a late meet ing of this Society, one hundred sorts of apples from Mr. Hugh Ronalds.— A bundle of asparagus consisting of l~-» heads, weighing twenty-eight pounds, from Mr. Win.
