This meets our eye daily in the column of "Wants," and it L; true as the Pentateuch. Wanted? Of course they arc always wanted. Tne market can never be overstocked ; they will alwaja be called for, and never be quoted "dull,'' or " no tale." Wanted for thinkers wanted for workeis in the mart, on the main, in the field and tiie forest. Tools are lying idle for the want of a young man ; a pen is wanting to be nibbled ; a tree to be felled ; a plow to be gui ded ; a village to be founded; a school to be in structed. . . They talk about staples and great staples. Honest, industrious, able young men are the great staple in this world of ours. Young man ! you are wanted, but not for a Doctor. No, nor a Lawyer. There are enough of them for this generation, and one or two to spare. Don't study a profession," unless it be the profes sion of brick laying or farming, or gome other of the manual professions. Don't measure tape if you can help it. It's honorable and hon est, and all that, but then vou can do better. Of all things, don't rob the women. It's their prerogative to handle silks and laces, tape and thread. Tut on your hat, theu, like a man, don an apron, and go out doors. Get a good glow 1 1 -1 - c . -I on your cases, rue jeweiry oi ion upon your brow, and a good set of well developed mus cles. We would go, if we could, but then we were young, longer ago than we like to think, and you know when one's "old, he can't." Besides, if you become a Doctor, you'll have to wait '-because you haven't experience," says an old practitioner; " because you are too youug," say all the women. If you are a Law yer, and likely to rise, they'll put a weight upon your head, a la Swiss, to keep you under, or, if you make a good argument; some old opponent, as gray as a rat, will kick it all over by some taunt or oilier, because you were not born in the year one. And so it will go, until you grow tired and soured, and wish you had been a tinker, perhaps an immortal" one, or any ihing but just what you are. Be a farmer, and your troubles are over, or ra ther they don't begin. You own what you stand on, " from ;he centre ofthe earth," as they used to aajr, " up to the sky ;" you are indepen dent all day, and tired, not weary at night. The more neighbors you have, and the better farm ers they are, the more and the better for you. There's one thing more, young man. You are wanted. A young woman wauls you. Don't forget her. No matter if you are poor. Don't wait to be rich. If you do, ten to one if you are Jit to be married at all, to anybody that's fit to be married. Marry white you are ycung, and struggle up together, lest in the years to come somebody shall advertise M Young men wanted," and none7to be found. New York Tribune. Celebrated Women. It wras iu the assem blies of celebrated women that, in the reign of Louis XV., were nourished the principles of free discussion and destructive philosophy that exercised so fatal an influence over the destinies of France. In the bureaux u'esprit of Madame de la Popeliniere and Madame de Tuedrt, the growing tastes for artistic and intellectual ex" ci lenient were gratified. Madame de la Pope liniere was the daughter of an actress, and was herself educated for the stage- but having form ed a connection with a wealthy fermur-general, which the aristocratic notions oi the day did not allow to be continued, he was compelled by the minister Fluery to marry her, and she quickly assumed a high position in society. Her career was, however, a short one, Her hus band discovered a communication between the chimney of her boudoir and the next house- which was tenanted by the Duke, afterwards Marshal de Richelbu. He repudiated her, and she died at an early age. Madame de Tuecin waaa mn in the convent of the Auaustine of Montfieuri, where a gay and jovial life seems to have been led, but as it was too narrow a world for the lady ; she gained her freedom. Among her numerous admirers were Bohngbroke and ontenelle. The result of her imprudence was a son This child, to save the ciedit of her brother, with whom she resided, she abandoned, and exposed on the steps of a church. It was picked, up by a poor woman, and eventually attained the high estemineuce by the name ot DAlemDeft, tne riend of Yollaira: As Madame de Tuecin grew old she assumed an air of respectability and gained considerable indirect political influence P . . .. Marmoutel, Pontenelle, Marivaux, and the young Helvetius were her friends, aud Pope Benedict XIV., was among her correspondents. She died in 1749, and was succeeded ia social reputation by Madame Geoffrin. Miss Kavanagh Tr,vriin Made Easy.

Of all amusement for the mind, From logic down to fishing. There isn't one that you can find So very cheap as "wishing !" A very choice diversion, too, If we but rightly use it, And not, as we are apt to do, Pervert it and abuse it. I wish a common wish, indeed My purse was something fatter, That I might cheer the child of need, And not nTy pride to flatter ; That I might make oppression reel, As only gold can make it, And break the tyrant's rod o( steel, As only gold can break it ! I wish that sympathy and Love, And every human passion That hath its origin above, Would come, aud keep in fashion; That scorn, and jealousy, and hate, And every bae emotion. Were buried fifty fathoms dejp Beneath the waves of ocean ! I wish that friends were always true, And motives always pure; I wish the god were t so few, I wish the bad were fewer ; I wish that parson? ne'er forgot To heed their pious teaching ; I wish that practising was not So different from peaching! I wish that modest worth might "03 Appraised with truth and candor ; I wish that innocence were free From treachery and slander ; I wish tha.t men their vows would mind; That women ne'er were rovers; 1 wish that wives were always kind, And husbands always lovers I I wish in fine that joy and mirth, Aud every good ideal, May come, erewhile, throughout the earth, To be the glorious real ! Till God shall every creature bless, Willi his supremest blessing, And hope be lost in happiness, And wishing be possessing ! The Sufferings of Genius. The world's his tory is lull of the persecution of great men. who stepped forward in advance of their age warning us to look kindly on honest purposes and to judge with charity what we do not com prehend. Let us not ridicule or despise new things because they conflict with our observation or seem to be impracticable. There is hardly a discovvery or invention in act that has not had its day of trial aud discouragement. Many a man has gone heart-broken to the giave in whom the fire of genius has burned, unseen and unappreciated, when adverse circumstance?, or shrinking timidity, or cold neglect, or want of a kind word, have come like a mountain up on him and kept his secret buried forever. Pri son bars have been pressed by throbbing brows which wou'dhave redeemed the world. The re cords of the world are full of the neglect of mer it, and yet nothing has been told. Perhaps there is scarcely a man livingjwho has not during some portion of his life, known some one who has pined unheeded, wanting the genial air and m--hi- u!,i,l, npv-or,,. Mrn tt misnlaccd ""7 f 4 and do not meet the magnet to draw out the metal within them. Mediocrity writes verses when it should be holding the plow, and the true poet does the drudgery of life, not dreaming why the fire torments him. The flint and steel are cold and cheerless unless struck together., and they may never come in contact. Spiritual Facts. That whiskey is the key by which many gain an entrance into our pris ons and almshouses. That brandy brands the noses of all those who cannot govern their appetes. That wyje causes many to take a winding way home. That punch is the cause of many unfriendly punches. That ale causes many ailings, while beer brings many to ihe bier. That champagne is the source of many real pains. That gin slings have "slewed moie than the slings of old. That the reputation of being fond of cocktails is not a feather in any man's cap. That money spent for port that is supped by portly gents, would support many a por fami- That porter is a weak supporter for those that are poor in body Love Letter from a Tailor to a Mantca- Maker.

The Tomh of Ittilton. Two minutes scarcely elapsed after I rang the HJxton's bell at St. Giles church, Cripplegate, be fore that personage 'ubhered mc urbanely into the ai3lc. The roof of tlie bidding is modern, but the dnrk carvings on pulpit and choir indicate an ge of two centuries. stood at the alter where Cromwell and Ben Johnson were married ; marked the pavement beneath which Fox, the author of "The Book of Martyrs," is buried ; and read the inscription 0:1 the Lucy vault a fami ly satined in the character of Shallow, and which incarnates for everlasting ridiculous the sapient justice who would have proved Shaks a deci-oiealcr. I examined the quaint old tomb of the historian SpccJe; and, from a window, looke 1 up n a fragment of the Roman wall the greatest antiquity of Loudon, hard by the vener able Cripplegate. Over aodinst a pew, a familiar bust marks the spot benettb which are the mortal remains of Milton, and his epitaph is grand in its simp'.ic ty "The author of Paradise Lost." He and hiav father before him were intendants of this church Hewr-t ',ioie-io the imagii.ati :i is this othjjfr wise not remarkable temple, wliere that Ix-auti-ful hoiA bowed in prayer! I re a He d his image as it lay in youthful beauty, one summer after n en, on the green sward, under the classic trees of the college lawn, when a fair lady hung en trancd abore the sleeper, and teft a scroll in his nerveless hand. I saw him in his prime, converging with Gali leo, and looking forth, with all a poet's rapture, upon Val d' Arno from the wooded summit of Fiesole. I beheld him when time had silvered his flowing hair, with sightless orbs uplifted, a? his fingers ran over the orgm-key9, and the calm of devotion softened the lines cf care and grief in that majestic countenance. Th picture he bequeathed of Eden, fragrant and dewy as creation's morning, tho forlorn glo ry of Satan, and the solemn cadence of the verse that embalmed, in perpetual music, the story of man's flratjdisobedience,' came i vidly back upon my heart beside his sepulchre. Stern Cromwell's rugged visage grew mild as his man iae response woke again from the silence of years; and blithe ly sounded the footsteps of rare old Ben, as he walked again, with his beloved, in my vision, up lhat solitary nave. What a changed aspect bears the world since Roger Williams talked with Milton of the prospects of religious liberty in America, and the lalter pleaded foe the freedom of the press ; and yet, with all the triumphs of science, the revelations of the laid have lost not a ray of their spiritual beauty ; his "high argu ment'' remains in all its orignal signifc nee ; T ii migtity song wakes the soul te-.lay as when first its eternal symphony burst forth ; his intact ca reer, unwavering faith, and sustained elevation reproach the sordid aud win the biave forever. Tuckerman. " Money Easy," by Smoker. "Money ea sy," is the frequent quotation of daily papers. - East," " easier," " easiest," flow 6 glibly from ;-u 0 a starving r-'i rter, who knows not wih're to get ad initio bu a glass of beer. Our friend Snooks, who is alVays hard up, inees his friend Brooks, who is bankrupt. Both ask, in the same breath, "what's the news?" "Money is easy." Pinch, ageut for Screw, waits upon the p'oor widow w ho occupies rented property. and salutes the trembler with "Money easier, landlord A kinch "Yes so 1 see," is the response froir thinned lips; but somehow or other tlit woman cannot meet fur rent, and the cannot afford to wait, so he distrains a 1 .1 1 A. 1 1 kzo nfriiiiu 1 lie s irec r , inouim " m 1 believe, from long and painful cxperirnce, that that this trequent quotation is a fiction a solemn farce .Never have 1 known m ney easy.

As for the ladies, them, ot course, 1 put out ot tne question ; tney are fresh, no doubt; they never fall iu love until mamma tells them Mr. So-and-so is an amiable fyouug man, and in ecery way eligible ; tliey nev er lliri with iapiuiu annul ai a Dan ; ana sign as they lie home iu bed, and think what a charming dashing fellow he is; they never hear the young curate read his sermon so sweetly, and hink how pale and interesting tie looks, and how lonely he must feel in his curat house, and what a noble work it would be to share the sol- tudeand soothe the pains, aud listen to the de iiihtlul doctrine of so excellent a man ; and nev er think of attaching tliemselves to any mortal, except their brother, until ne urings noine a young friend Jrom college, aim savs, - mary, 10m Atkinson admires you iiugwiy, im is ueir 10 u thousand a year !" lhey never i gm the attack as 1 have heard ; but their young hearts wait like so many fortresses, to be attacked ond carried after a proper period of tiege by blockade, or by bribery, or by capituiauon, or uy iiery escaiaue.

Thus, it is evident, that as the la dies will not, the men must take offensive. I, for mv part, have made in the course of my life, at least a 6core of chivalrous attacks upon sev eral strongly fortified hearts.
