Iitnl week, upon " Tho Early Coins of Amer
en," we mnko the following extracts :
In 1748, Sir Alex. Gumming presented
inemorial to Parliament, in which ho pre
posed, that in order to preserve tlio deper
dcney of the British plantations in Aineric
on Great Britain, the current specie of Grca
Britain should be raado the curreut lawfi
money of the said plantations, and tlu
?200,000 sterling be coined in the Tower fc
that purpose, which sum was to be made th
foundation of a provincial bank for th
British plantations in America, in order t
abolish the paper currency of Now Englan
and Carolina. The proposition was nc
A coin which it is believed was never i
circulation, and of which copies in whit
meini are occasionally tunnel, was issued 1
1770. Description : An inch anil a half i
diameter. Obverse : a rising nun, shiniti
on a dial, and the motto, " Mind your busi
ne?s" beneath. In a ring near tho edge?
Continental Currency, 1770?and in anotl
?r ring within this, the word "Kngio." lit
verse :-thirteen small rings, with the name
of tho Slates; on a ring within thcs<
"American Congress," and in tho cenlrt
" We arc one."
During the Confederation, from 1778 t
1787, the law intrusted tlie right ofcoinin
money to the individual States as to th
General Government. The right was exei
cisod to a considerable exti:nl by the
and a variety of coins was the result. Ne\
York, New Jersy, Connecticut, Vermoii
and Massachusetts issued coins. Most c
them were of the cent denomination. 1
Doubloon (gold) was coined in New Yorl
in 1787, which is of great rarity?only on
copy, I think, in existence, and that in th
United States Mint. I have impressions c
this coin in wax and plaster, kindly give
ine by the late George Newton. The coin
of Massachusetts and Vermont bore a variet
of devices. TIib " Vnvn nnnclallpitn" r\f 1
stars, and another piece with the same num
bcr of rings, were coined in Massachusetts
Frobably many of the cents bearing th
bust of Washington and the date of 178J
as well as those of the same device, but wit!
out a date, were put forth at the tiino
Another coinage was made during thi
period. It consisted of the shilling, sixpcnc
and threepence of "J. Chalmers, Annapolis,
1783. They are now rare.
The Coustitution of 1787 put an end t
all these State issuer, and the authorities sc
about to devise a national coinage, W|i!l
they were deliberating, Mr. John Harper, c

These dies are said to have been execute
by a Gorman, except the lettering, whic
Mr. II. probably performed himself. Judg
DeSausstire, of South Carolina, is claime
to have suggested the head of Washingto
as a device. I have seen an extract of a lc
ter from L. Vanuxen to Dr. Lswis C. Becl
dated Sept. 28, 1846, in which he says"Judge
DeSaussure, of S. C., told me ho ws
Ihe first director of the mint, and had th
' head of Washington put upon the first cent
that were coined." From these dies all th
Washington cents were struck; and wer
manufactured in the cellar of Mr. Ilurper
bouse, in Chestnut-street Fbiladelpbia.Those
of 1702 were struck on a press in a
old coach house in the same street.
The following is a description of th
cent:?Obverse?A bust of Washingloi

Stars are substituted for the motto?a scro
and the year, which, in tho lirst specrmei
is placed below tha bust, is transferred t
the opposite side.
The Cent of 1792 is distinguished by ii
increased diauieter. The bust is enlarge
and under it 1792. The inscription is, (
Washington, President I. The eagle o
the reverse is much larger but of a simih
model. The words " One Cent" do not aj
pear on this specimen. A few of tbes
were struck in silver and are known as tli
Washington Half Dollar. More than t\v

Docs One's Style of \\ritlkin(/ Indicate his
Character ??Fowler says that those whose
motions aro awkward yet easy posse-s
, much efficiency and positiveness of charac,
ter, yet lack polish; and just in proportion as
tlicy become refined in mind will their
Q mode of carriage correspondingly improve.
? A short and cinick step indicates a brisk '
3 ami active, out lather contracted in: J.
e '
whereas those who take long steps, generally
have long heads; yet if their steps be
v slow, they will make comparatively little
progress, while those whose step is long
r and ijtiick, will accomplish proportionately
^ much, and pass most of tlicir compettors
l_ on the highway of life. Their heads and j
plans, too, will partake of tiie same far
reaching character evinced in their carriage
^ Those who sluf or draw their heels, drag |
(i and drawl in everything; while those who j
walk with a springing, bounding frtcp,
abound in a mental snap and spring. Those
. whose walk is minemjr, effected and
3 .
artificial, rarely, if ever, accomplish much;
whereas those who walk carelessly, that is,
naturally, arc juBt what they appear to bc?
t and put on nothing for outside show.
Those who in walking, roll from sido to
side, lack directness of character, and side
every way, according to circumstances;
whereas those who take a bee lino?that is,
? whose body moves neither to the right nor
left, but strait forward?have a corresponding
directness of purpose, and oneness of
^ ch;?n?cter, those also who teeter up and
down when they walk, rising an inch or
" two every step, will have many corresponding
ups and downs in life, because of the
' ilw.:.. : r . . ....
j men nrvguiariiy 01 cnaractcr and teelmg.
^ Those, too, who make a great ado in walking,
will make much needless parade in
^ everything else, and hence spend a great
amount of usclcssncss steam in all they
undertake, yet accomplish little; whereas
those who walk easily, or expend little
' strength walking, will accomplish great
results with a little strength, both mentally
and physically, in short, every individual has
his own peculiar mode of moving, which
exactly accords witli his mental character;
so that, so far as you can see such modes*
, you can decipher such outline of character"
- Integrity of Character.?Who ever
u possessed it that did not derive untold advantage
from it? It is better than the gold
l8 of Ophir; it in of more value than diamonds
r, and all nrecious storms. Anrl
I i "" * /vv
n man may possess it. Tbe poorest may have
?e it, and no power can wrest it from them.?
iO To young men, we say with earnestness and
]| emphasis, look at integrity of character
n with the blessings it confers, and imbibe
i) such principles, and pursue such a course,
that its benefits may be yours. It i6 a prize
j, so rich that it repays every sacrifice and
_ every toil necessary to secure it. Suppose
a mercantile community could be found
d whoso every individual was known and ac 9
knowledged to possess strict and uncompro
y mising integrity; the representation of each
other were in strict accordance with truth ;
t "his word as good as a bond!" Such a
e community would have a monopoly of the
I trade, so far as they had the means of supII
plying tho demand. "The tricks of the
i trade," whatever may be their apparent
o advantages, impair confidence, and in the
end injure those who practice them far more
Lr than they benefit them. It is a sliortsighted,
asTwell as a guilty policy, to swerve
under any^eircumstances, from those great
principles which are of universal and everlasting
obligation. Let a man maintain
his integrity at all times, and he will bo satisfied
there is a blessing in it, and a blessing
all around it.?Philadelphia Bulletin.

A late English periodical says that in

ca nt Tortworth, in Gloucestershire, seems
> rival, if not to surpass, any existing oak
r yew tree in Great Britnin. This is tlic
ee under which King John held a parlialent,
and it has been deemed tho largest
ad oldest tree in tho country. As it was
eferred to as a boundary mark of tho manor
i the reign of Stephen, and was famous in
Ling John's time for its magnitude, it was
robably a tree in tho time of Egbert, and il
nay be much older than even a thousand
ears. The circumference of its trunk is uol
2ss than fifty feet at five feet from tlx
;round. This magnitude, however, is great
y surpassed by that of the famous trco or
lount Etna, 'The Castngno de Cento Ca

ree in the world, and the trunk of which i:

mmense flood of pompous words, as was
