From the St, Louis Herald. Who will be the Democratic Candi date for the Presidency? '-" mm The State Conventions already held, the arrangements in progress for holding others, and general pablic sentiment as re fleeted by the press of the country, furnish sufficient data to base a respectable calcu lation upon as.to what will be the charac ter of the first ballotting, at least, at the Charleston Convention on the 23rd of Ap-ril: The editor of the Rockford News who, though occupying an independent position in respect to political matters, 1s nevertheless, a close observer of eurrent events, has been figuring in this connec tion, and arrives a coaclusions so nearly in harmony with oar own notions that we substantially represent them.

In the first place, make up your mind to accomplish whatever you undertake, deeide upon some particular f mployment. and persevere in it. 'AH difficulties are overcome by dilligence and assiduity. Be not afraid to work with your hands, and dilligently too 'A cat in gloves catches no mice.' 'He who remains in the mill grinds, not he who goes and comes.' Attend to your own business, and never trust it to another, 'A pot that belongs to many isf stirred and worse boiled.' Be frugal. 'That which will not make a pot, will make a pot-lid.' 'Save the pence, and the pounds will take care of themselves.' Rise early. 'The sleeping fox catch es no poultry,' 'Plow deep while slug gards Bleep, and you will have corn to Bell and keep.' Treat every one with respect and civil ity, 'Everything Is gained and nothing lost by courtesy.' 'Good manners ensure success.' Never anticipate wealth from any oth er source than labor: especially never place dependence npon becoming the pos sessor of an inheritance. 'He who waits for dead men's shoes may have 'to go a lone time barefoot.' 'He who runs after a shadow has a wearisome race.' Above all things never despair. 'God is where he was.' 'Heaven helps those who help themselves.' Follow implicitly these precepts, and nothing can hinder you from accumulat ing. Can this be Trne? The small-pox having spread fearfully amongst the monkeys of South America, Dr. Pinkard, Secretary to the Blooms bury-street Vaccination Society, .was struck by the idea of arresting its further progress, Vaccination was, of course, to be the means of staying the plague,, and his scheme for its introduction was singu larly, ingenious. He bound two or three boys hand and foot, and then vaccinated them in the presence of an old monkey, who was Observed to be closely attentive to his proceedings. He then left him alone with a young monkey, with some of the matter . on the table, and beside it lancet, guarded, th'at it might not cnt too deep, by a projesting piece of steal, on the same principle as ivory cucumber slices are made, and on the principle also adopted in what is called 'hunting razors.' The doctor witnessed the result from neighboring room; the old monkey threw the vouncr one down, bound him without delav. and vaccinated him with all the skill of a professor. 'The usual effects, says Mr. Rose, 'followed. Other steady monkeys were thus instructed in the art, after having been themselves previously inoculated; and several are, it is said, now being sent out to South America, provided with all necessary means for beneficial in fection.' May the attempt sueceed, and men and monkeys, throughout that exten sive continent have cause to bless the name of England.' n anti-tobacco lecturer spoke so powerful against the use of tobacco that several of his audience went home and burnt their cigars, holding one end in their mouths by way of punishment! tgPIt is exceedingly bad husbandry to harrow up the feelings of your wife.

Subscribers who do not give express no tice to the contrary, are considered as wishing to continue their subscription. 2. If subscribers order the discontinuance of their newspapers, the publisher may continue to send them until all arrearages are paid. 3. If subscribers neglect or refuse to take ihei' papers from the offices to which they are directed, they are held responsible till they have settled the bill, and ordered them discon tinued. 4. If subscribers remove to other places without informing the publishers, and the pa pers are sent to the former direction, they are held responsible. 6. The courts have decided that refusing to take periodicals from the office, or removing and leaving them uncalled for, is prima facie evidence of intentional fraud. Business Ca rds. SAMUEL GRIMSHAW.
