Ah! Taming O'er tho Classic Pag*.
Ab I turning o'er tbe classic page,
Th? unbidden tear will start,
Sinee, musing o'er the heroic age,
We loee the h er o? o heart!
That heart which ever beat with glory's tide,
go fisarlees, fond sed fr??;
That knew no prouder hope, no dearer pride,
Than when, triumphing as it died,
It proved its generous truth and matchless
The.Boul at glory's ?all which sprung,
The lova whose generous youth,
On beauty's slightest accents bung,
And yielded truth for truth.
Ohl for such soul in these degenerate days,
Fer valor such pnre flame; *
While battling to the last, in beauty's gase,
Implored no blessing belter than her praise,
And deem'd her smile the very light of fama
And it ia fame! Hearts cherish iong.
Wherever feeling weeps the brave:
And valor lives in beauty's song,
And constant faith survivss^? grave.
Still' o'er the page that tells of hero deeds,
The fond heart lingers yat;
Glows with its triumph, in its anguish bleeds,
And, though it weeps the while, weeps on, and
And never, weeping ever, oas. forget!

Oar distinctions do not lie'in the placet
? aa ?
which we occupy, but in tho grace and
dignity with which we fill them. It ? to
the few alone that place accords d?stine
tien. Position, in tbe world's eye, is a
pillory, rather than a throne, to Che thou?
sands who scramble for its attainment; and
there is a native baseness in the ambition
which seeks beyond its desert, that never
allows moro conspicuously than when, no
matter how, it temporarily ^jains its object.
The snake may reach the eminence as cer?
tainly aa the eagle, but he reaches it by
crawling, and bc still remains a snake.
To feel oppressed by obligation, is ouly
to provo that we are incapable of a proper
sentiment of gratitude. To receive favors
from tbe unworthy, is simply to admii that
our selfishness is superior to our pride, i
Most men remember obligations, but not
?often to be grateful for them. The proud
?re made sour by the remembrance, and
the vain silent.
XXI TACT. . 1
Tact, ia one of the first of mental virtues,
the absence of which is frequently fatal to
the best of talents. Without denying that
it is a talent of itself, it will aofiice if wc
admit that it supplies the plaee of many
talents. It is chiefly discoverable in
society, bj the facility with which it at
certained ?o which of your toes the gout
Bas taken lodgment and in the felicity with
which it avoids trespassing upon*?e suffer
in" member. We cannot withhold our
affection from one who not only forbears
our failing, but never suffers us to suppose
"that he suspects their existences.
It is a bird flight of the roul; when the
heart declares itself in song. The affections
that clothe themselves with wings, are pas?
sions, that have been subdued to virtues.
The .highest glory of manhood is when
I it stands in the attitude of the benefactor,
j It is in this attitude that it most resembles
the Deity, in whose image, we are told, that
man was orignally made. It i- in tbi*
attitude that it most strikingly exhibits its
own sense of gratitude to God for his

He is most secures of live who lives for
his fellow. One lives through all periods',
who bas in all periods lived for his race.
We must see humanity through onr ambi
tion always, if we would make and per?
petuate that life Which consists in an
There is, no doubt, such a thing nf
char.ce, but I see no reason why Provi
neuce should not make ?ec of it.
xxvii. PURPOSELESS THOUGHT.
TO think without a purpose, is to baffle
ftie will, which is equally thc soul of purpose
anti performance. The intellect is imbecile
in execution, whose, efforts are objectless.
That if tho ablest, mi ?id, which bas acquir?
ed the habit of thinking during action.

Thc amiable is a duty most certainly,
but must not bc exercised at "the expense
aj? any of the virtues. He who seeks to
do tha amiable always, can only be success?
ful at the frequent expense of his manhood.
The most tolerant nature in the world
should always discriminate in its indulgence,
if it would not countenance insolence, or
affoid a sanction to the offender. Virtue
requires that we should chasten, quite as
often as humanity entreats us to forbear; and
authority must frequently use tho scourge,
j where affection would be only too happy
XXIX. GOOD SERVANTS.
If reu would avoid being angry with
your servant, wait as much ae possible
Cur virtues aro but too frequently exer
cijcd st the expensa of our charities. They
should never be allowed to lift us so far
above our neigh bora, as to c ake uu lese
