Wiliiim Catleo Bryant once gave the following teniiibie advice to young mao who had offered him ao article for the Evening Port: Mv young friend, I observe that you have used several French expressions in your letter. I think, if you will study the English language, that you will find it capable of expressing all the ideas that you may have. I have always found it so, and in all that I have written I do not reoall an instance where I was tempted to use a foreign' word, but that, on eearohiog, I have found a bettor one in my own language. Be simple, unaffected ; be honest in your speaking and writing. Never use j a long word when a short one will do as well. Call a spade by i names not a well known oblong instrument of manual labor ; lot a home be a home and not a residence ; a place not a locality, and eo on of the rest. When a short word will do, you always lose by a long one. You lose in clearness ; you loso in lion est expression of meaning; and in the es timation of all men who are capable of judging, you loso in reputation lor a bility, The only true way to shine, even in this false world, is to be modest and unasaumiug. Falsehood may be a thick crust, but in the course of time truth will find a place to break through, iiloganoo of language may not be in the the power of us all, butsimplioity and straightforwardness are. Writo much as you would spoak, and as you think. If with your inferior apeak no coarser than usual : if with your superior, speak no finer. Be whit you saj and within the rules of prudence. No one ever was a gainer by singularity of words or in pronun ciation. Tho truly wise man will so speak that do one will observe how he speaks. A mimy show preat know lodge of oheinistry by carrying blad ders of strange gases to breathe ; but one will enjoy better health, and find more time for business, who lives on common air, Sidney Smith ooee remarked : 'After you have written an- article take your pen and strike out half the words, and you will be surprised to see how much ritrongcr it is." lVhnt Nhe irtcnnt. Tlieyounii man was evidently honest in his intentions but three years of ctnistnnt courting failed to overcome his bashfulneu. They were sitting iu I'liairs at a respectable distance apart Sail tho young man, having rpent five minuted in search of a subject . "Hjw doyou get' aloug with your cooking?" "Nicely," replied the young miss; I "m improving wonderfully. I can make tp'cndid cak now." "Can yon?" said the young man, in a pleased manner; "what kind do you like host ?" "I liko one made of floor and cugar nnd citron and raisins and currants. tots nf those thingi. and beautiful front inir nn titp," responded the young miss "Why. that's a wedding cake," ex claimed the young, nan nervously. ' f meant wedding," said the young rui.-, rhyly. They are published. A young; lady ha written a book etlloi "My Loveri." It begins ot cour-v at Chap. 1. "II tnueh wat tba butter, did you j ?
