"To "keep jolly" undor all provocation it, perhaps, a task which only Dickons' Mark Taplojr could perforin. We never have met Mark Tapley in oar experience of human nature, but we have seen him closely approximated, and jt would bo well if poo^ pie in general could approach moro nearly 'lift tinimitable character. ? phases, emergencies and ocoupaifons of human life, good temper is a commodity for which there is a great demand, but In those which bring an individual into daily eon* tact with others, it is porhaps in greatest demand and roost limited supply. To foremen in shops, and superins tendontB of large manufacturing establishments, good temper is a most valuable qualification. Indeed, this aftiolo was suggested by a notablo want of good temper, in the treatment of subordinates, by a foreman in an A A* vauiuiiBunteiiii rooonuy visuea Dy us. It was evident that this establishment was pervaded by a spirit of revolt, begotten by the brow-beating, insolont language and manner of the foroman?the men, who wore sulky and obstinate, being undoubtedly rendered unmanageable and restless by the total disregard of amenity In tho man placed over them. The best way is always to keep a cheerful heart. Take tho world as it goes, and the good- and the evil as they sovorally come along, without repining, if fortune frowns, with that philosophical ejaculation of Jaeob Faithful, "Better luok noxt time." It has boon rcmarkod that if a man wants to known his faults ho noma run tor an office; if he would discover bi? virtue.* ho hus only to die. 1 A Vf IFK OH TBB "OJTUATKHf."?

Not ot tho men alone, but of tlie women, tuo, many dresses, too many parties, too many clubs of the men, and too many cigars and too much wiue also. On both sidoa too much is expended to keep up appearauoes. Meu who wouiu like to marry and bo more in ladies' society are kept out of it.

A man iq tbe hands ot himself is a lull grown gnarled oak, set, grown, finished, especially in those habits known as extravagant, yet so Jamil- 1 iar to him he calls them "actual necessities." The old man is an im- 1 mense old humbug. He habitually pulls the wool over the good wife's eyes. He is a book-keeper who is not asked by his partner to make out a balance sheet with itimized statements. If she would reouire such n * document every throe months, there would be leet said about the "extravagant habits of our wouion." Such a document, if trutthtuiiy written, would be rioh reading.

Professor Duncan, among the ablest of European astronomers, has lately declared that thoro is strong evidence that tho earth is a solid body now cooling, becauso tho deeper the penetrations into mines, or of bor iuga into the earth, the hotter is the temperature ; aud if the temperature continues to increase at depths to which mat) can not reach, in the same ratio that it doGS at depths to which ho can reach, a temperature of 3,680 degrees would bo found at a depth of forty live miles.

Professor Duncan says it is well known that surface changed aro going on ; that aomc largo areas of land aro in conreo of slow rising, while others aro slowly sinking, and that at one geolopioal period there wea a great upheaval of (he larger portion of the continent of Worth America. lie concludes, therefore, that the globe is cooling unequally ; It !!_? . i - ' no i utiuu ion, ioo, irum soino pariB is greater that) at othors, and in th is thoro ie consequently a further source of disturbance.

Who would ran the risk oi all these evils tor the sake of having a chicken for supper, or a bit of beet, or pork ? All theso and better things can ho obtained by labor. And when a man is hard run and can't find work every day, ho will do better to b? g a morsel, than to steal and bo lodged in jail to tho injury ot his pocket, his charactor, his family and his country.
