of theTaaldn ,Rifez-"ijTNaith TJarolina; Damcl Boonei the illustrious hunterv- had heard Finley, n trader, so memorable as the pioneer describe a tract of-land west of Virginia Z3 the richestin North America or in the world.-,'.' In. May, 1769, Tearing his wife and offspring, having . Emily as his pilot, and four others as his companions, the young ina'n of about three and twenty wandered forth throuorbf the wilderness of America, "in quest of the country of Ken- tucky," known to the savages as "the Dark and Bloody Ground," the "Middle Ground" between the subjects of the Five .Nations and the Cherokees. , Alter a long and . fa tiguing journey through-mountain ranges, the party found themselves in June on the Red River, a tributary to the Kentucky, and from the top of an eminence surveyed with delight the beautiful plain that stretch ed to the north-west. Here they built shel ter and began tor reconnoitre and to hunt. All the kinds of wild beasts that were nat ural to America the stately elk, the timid deer, the ahtlered stag, the wildcat, the bear, the panther and the wolf couched among the canes, or roamed over the rich grasses which, even beneath the thickest thades, sprang luxuriantly out of the gen erous soil. The buifaloes cropped fearless ly the herbage or browsed on the leaves of the reed, and were more frequent than cattle in the settlements of Carolina herds men. Sometimes there were hundreds in a drove, and round the salt-licks their num fcer was amazing. The summer in which for the first time a party of while men enjoyed the brilliancy of nature near and in the valley oF the .blk horn, passed away in the occupations of ex ploring parties and the chase. But one by one, Boon s companions dropped off, till he was left alone with John Stewart. They jointly found unceasing delight in the won ders of the forest, till one evening, near Kentucky river, they were taken prisoners by a band of Indians, wanderers like them selves. They escaped and were joined by Boone's brother ; so that when Stewart was soon after killed by savages, the first vie tim among the hecatomb of whitemen slain by them in their desperate battling for the lovely hunting ground. Boone still had his brother to share with him the dangers and attractions of the wilderness, the building and occupying the first cottage in Kentucky. In the spring of 1770, that brother re turned to the settlements for horses and supplies of ammunition, leaving the re nowned hunter "by himself without bread, or salt, or sugar, or even a horse or dog. "The idea of a beloved wife," anxious for his safety, tinged his thoughts with a sad ness ; but otherwise the cheerful, medita tive man, careless of wealth, knowing the use of the rifle, not the plough, of a strong robust frame, in the vigorous health of "ear ly manhood, ignorant of books, but versed in the forest and forest life, ever fond of tracking the deer on foot, away from men, yet in his disposition, humane, generous and gentle, was happy in the uninterrup ted succession "of sylvan pleasure." One calm summer's evening, as he climb ed a commanding ridge, and looked out up on the remote "venerable mountains," and the nearer ample plains, and caught a glimpse in the distance of the Ohio, which bounded the land of his affections with majestic grandeur, his heart exulted in the region he had discovered. "All things were still." Not a breeze so much as shook a leaf. He kindled a fire near a fountain of sweet water, and feasted on the loin of a buck. He was no more alone than a bee among flowers, but communed familiarly with the whole universe of life. Nature was his intimate and as the roving woodsman leaned confidingly on her bo som, she responded to his intelligence. For him the rocks and the fountains, the leaf and the blades of grass had life ; the cooling air, laden with the wild perfume, came to him as a friend ; the dewy morn- ing wrapped him in its embrace ; the trees stood up gloriously round about him as so many myriads-ef companions. All forms wore the character of design or peril. But liow could he be afraid 1 Triumphing over danger, he knew no fear. The perpetual howling of the wolves by night round his cottage or hisbiviouac in the brake, was his diversion y and by day he had joy in sur reying the various species of animals that surrounded him. He loved the solitude bet ter than the towered city or the hum of business. Near the end of July, 1770, his faithful brother came back to meet him at the old camp. Shortly after he proceeded to Cum berland river, giving names to the different! waters ; and he then returned to his wife and children, fixed in his purpose at the risk of life and fortune to bring them as soon as possible to live in Kentucky, which he esteemed a second paradise. The Influences of Home. There are few words in the English lan guage which sound sweeter than that of Home. It brings up before the "mind's eye the joyous days of childhood, awakens the happy associations of our youth and in nocence, and warms the soul m the fire of happy memories. Indeed, it is a word which - is blessed and. sacred; ih every bosom. There is not a memory which is not stored with pleasant recollections of the home of their early years; and there is no heart . -which ever forgets the influences which there moulded and formed its affections and its impulses. From the wild forests of the "West, from the icy regions of the North, from the sunny plains of the South, from every quarter ot the globe, the thoughts of millions and millions of human beings go back with tearful pleasure of the quiet hap piness and the-, contented enjoyment of then childhoods. home. Those homes may sow be desertedr the fires which burned upon their hearths maybe dim, the . eyes which loved to watch our coming may have long since ceased to smile a welcome, the voice which gladdened us mav have long since been silenqed in death ; but for all that, and the absence of years, and the - thousand cares of life, and the bustle and strife of business, there are times ' when we go:back upon the chain of memory and " .1 f puce more live over again me me ot our Childhood. All over fife's weary desert are travellers Vho'hever forget' "the; 5 early im pressions made upon their 'hearts ''in the bosom of home, -and : whose v thoughts go back over the , waste xf years i to the--old homestead, and to .- the kind, lessons Tof a mother and the friendly counsels of k W- "From a good home it is not far to Heav en," is the thought of.-'a. noble-hearte.d Swedish woman; and the sentiments is full of great and beautiful truth.' A good home; a home,in which: the father and the moth er performed their duty to their- children, is roe Desi scnooi upon eann-: j.ne yosm- lul mind is ever. opeii to - instruction; ; .aid can easily be moulded to the will ot 1 superior intelliffence The youthful be is susceptible to impressions, and lessons of truth and goodness imparted in the early years of childhood, never; tail to produce p. Lasting benefit. . , The fireside'is an institu tion far more important than the College or the eminary. The lessons there learn ed are life s lessons. They are never for gotten. The influences of home and early education direct the whole destiny. : They are the blessings "or the curse of mankind. The children of to-day "are he -men and women of to-morrow. It should " never be forgotten, that-t 1 "The child is father of the man;" and that upon the influences which, direct the childhood depend the character and des tiny of after life. The habits then formed are the habits which give form and color to the. whole texture . of existence. .Lessons of truth and virtue, then learned," are nev- er forgotten. They may seem to be erased from roe tablets of memory, and , may ap pear to exert no influence upon the charac ter and the life, but it is never so. They are as deep and lasting as the mind - and the soul. They defy the rust of years,and outlive all other lessons oi maturer age. How important, then, that the . influen ces of home should be salutary influences. xiow lmDortant that the impressions made upon the youthful mind, should be goodim pressions. How important that the char acter then formed, should be based upon the principles of truth and virtue. With such a character, the path of prosperity honor and renown lies open to all. A good character, the basis of which has been laid in childhood, is the first great requisite to success in life. A young man who is en terinar upon life with a fair reputation, feels that he possesses a treasure which is be yond all price. Character has . been well compared to capital; -the more a person possesses of it, the greater are his facilities for adding to it ; or it is like an accumula ting fund, constantly increasing in .value, and daily acquiring to itself fresh accessions of stability and worth. Augusta Home Gazette. Take care of your Health. To a young man who asked Horace Mann to give his counsel towards success . in the profession, that extraordinary Mann replied tersely, prompt, and definitely. He opens with the following very common-sense anl important suggestion touching the necessi ty of Health. "First, you need health. Hope cheats him with the belief that, if he can study now without cessation he can always. Because he does not see the end of his strength, he foolishly concludes there is no end. A per son who is a spendthrift of health is one of the most reprehensible of spendthrifts. - I am certain I could have performed full twice the labor, both better and with great er ease to myself, had I known as much of the laws of health and life, at twenty-one, as I do now. In college, I was taught every thing about the motions of the planets.Jwith as much care as though the world would be in danger of getting off the track if I had not known how to trace their orbits; but about my own organization, and the conditions in dispensable to the healhful functions of my own body, I was left in profound ignorance. Nothing could be more preposterous than to take such a coursed I ought to have begun at home, and taken the stars when.it should have come their turn. The consequence of it was, I broke down at the beginning of my second college year, and have never had a well day since. Whatever labor I have ev er since been able to do, I have it all upon credit, instead of capital a most ruinious way, either in regard to health or money. For the last twenty-five years, so far as it re gards health I have been put, from day to day on my good behavior; and during the whole of this period, as a Hibernian would say, it l had. lived as other loiks ao lor out a month, I should have died in a fortnight. "Health has a great deal to do with what the world calls talent. Take a lawyer's life through, and high health is at least equal to fifty per cent more of brain. - Endurance, cheerfulness, wit, eloquence, attain a force and splendor with health which they never can without it? It often happens that the credit awarded to the intellect belongs to the digestion. Though-I do not believe erenius andeupepsy are convertible terms, yet the lurmcr can never nse to lis lomest heights unaided by the latter. "Again, a wise man, with a great enter prise before him, first looks round for suita ble instruments wherewith to execute itj'and he thinks it all-important to command these instruments before he commences his labor. Health is an indispensable instrument for the best qualities and the highest finish of every work. Think of the immense advan tage it would give you in a suit at court, if, after a week's or a fortnights investigation of facts,, you would come irffor roe closing argument, on the last day, fresh and elastic, which only so much more of momentum and fervor for the velocity and glow which you had acquired, while your wilted opponent had but little more vitality 4han a bag of n A tf'ITrtrrr Inn or nJlf -n-t (tai1iara ot1 ners oY-youth suffer boxers and racers to be wiser mN their generations than them- f selves.?" - .
