My son, I shall soon be srone, and you will have the management of the concern. Never expect to sustain your paper upon any other foundation than its merits. - lie prudent, temperate, and upright Work hard. Be civil to every body, and particu larly to your customers. . If they call themsaves your patrons, I wouldn't mind it, Billy ; let them call themselves nabobs, it they please, so long as they pay for the paper ; never exhibit that aristoc racy which is a part of the original sin that is in us all, in any such way, for it will do you no good, my son. Above all things, never put it in the power of any man to say, "that is our paper," we subscribed twenty dollars to keep it up ; " for sure as you live, Billy, sooner or later, something will be printed that somebody won't like; and then somebody will drop nia suoscnpuon to get your paper down. - Une man will withdraw, or become a, little water-rrruellv to wards you, because you are too severe upon sin and another because you are not half severe enough. Another will give you that, half-way support that is more injurious than no support at all ; and if your paper is heartily praised by some old fashioned, honest lieartcd man, he will reply in prudent and well balanced phraseology, that he does not know but it is so, and he does not know as it is so it is so. Every morning read the fable of the Old Man Jack ass, and Little Boy. Never omit it, Billy, as long as you live. You will have many things to en counter that are not very am-eeable. Anonymous letters of an impudent character burn at once ; never mention them to any body, not even to your wife. Where a customer drops the paper do not betray your displeasure, by an extraordinary ap pearance when yoa meet again. Never run about to pith up crumbs of comfort, nor ask any man what he thinks of this, that or the other article in your paper, which you wrote yourself, Billy. Be cautious in putting in your advertisements. 1 lost a good advertising customer by placing another man's advertisment of melasses before bis own. With your good common sense you will do well enough. The public respect you for your inde pendence; but you must remember that there is the same difference between real and affected in dependence, as between real nutmegs and the arti- ble manufactured at home. In a word, fear God, and shame the DeviL - -OS- Predictions fob the present Year. A Ger man newspaper has recently published a prophecy by a Benedictine monk, who died in 1846, the pur port ot ot which is that the present year, 1850, will be one of unusual prospepity. The different sects of cbristianty will this year accord. The Sul tan will be poisoned, (Aboul Medjil had best take care) and his empire will become christian. Rus sia will suffer much from a warlike nation of the cast. A German Prince will found an eastern em pire.

Mirror. Indian Council. V The Syracuse Journal says that a series of Indi an councils have been held daily at the Onondaga Castle for the past fortnight. The writer says, "on Friday last was celebrated the important rite of sacrificing the White Dog ! The customary victim was immolated on a flaming altar, with all the for mality and circumstance of ancient usage among the Iroquois, in presence of a pagan portion of the nation, and numerous white persons,- spectators. On Tuesday last, this crowning festival of the Indi an year, after a continuance of nine days, was clos ed with the exciting and wonderful ceremony of the War Dance. These observances are continued in the midst of a christian community with' all the reverence, solemnity and zeal of ancient times with a punctuality and devotion which shows the regard these people have for the institutions of their fa thers, and with what tenacity they still cling to their ancient customs.' TOE FKElillAN. FREMONT, SANDUSKY COUNTY, FEBRUARY 9, 1850. Follow Him Home. A simple minded old country-woman who was one day congratulated on the apparent good qual ities and disposition of her husband, replied in the vernacular of her native district, "Ah l ye should foller'n whoam. Follow him home ! The phrase, though unpre tending, admits of an explanation both wide and significant What a different social state should we have had the world been always accustomed to follow men, things and ideas home. How much that is vague and mysterious, would now be clear and explicable ; how much that is contemned would rise into honor. And we may perhaps, without be ing over-ventursome, affirm, that the moral and physical world would not have been just as it is, had following home been an immemorial practice. The proposition may be supported by discuss ing a few salient facts in history. Had the priests of ancient Egypt been followed home, the pyra mids might never have been built Could Mahom et's disciples have followed him home, one hundred millions of people would not. now be votaries cf the cresent Had Ceesar followed home the spare and abstemious Brutus, on the advent of the Martian Ides, he might not have died tinder traitorous dag gers in the capital. Had the monk Schttaftt been followed home by a cardinal's hat or bishop's mitre, would he have invented giinpotvder! Had the Romish churchmen followed Luther home; and searched the secret of his 'heresy,' what Wars, persecutions and miseries Would ha-e been spared to humanity. Could papal nuncios have been fol lowed home, people would not have been silly enough to endure the horrors of an interdict Had the Danes followed home the minstrel, whose harp-strings charmed their camp, England might have waited a little longer for hundreds, tythings, and trial by jury. Had Columbus riot followed home the Castilian sovereigns again and arain, would he have discovered America ? The queen of Scots might have saved her Jiesid had Elizabeth but once followed her home to her private cham ber at Fotheringay. If instead of shutting tip Sol omon de Caus as a lunatic, sortie kind patron had followed him home, James Watt might have found much of his work already done to his hand. Had Charles the I followed Hamden home on his first refusal to pay ship-money Whitehall might never have witnessed a royal execution. Had the Bed ford magistrates followed Bunyan home, instead of incarcerating his body.whero would be the pilgrim's progress ? Could one or two of prince Charlie's chieftains have followed the London Bank Direc tors home on that memorable "black Friday" in 1 745, there might have been farewell to George I, and the Hanoverian dynasty. Could Napoleon's soldiers have followed him home, how brief would have been the catalogue of his victories. Had Robespierre followed Collot d' Herbois home on the eve of the ninth Thermidor, the Curmagnole miget never have been danced and sung round his headless trunk. Had Fox followed Pitt horae.there would have been an end to their rivalry. Had Walpole followed Chatterton home, instead of de ceiving him with vain promises, a poet the more wuuiu nave leu immortal tnoughts tor posterity. When the hostile Philadelphia printer followed Franklin home, and saw the remains of a loaf on which the unconoious hero had dined, his hope of crushing his sturdy compeittor vanished. Were slaves followed home manumission, would not be long delayed ; arid if impatient turbulence could fol low legislators home, it would nut less faith in ma levolence. Endless would be our catalogue if pur- sueu ; ana cnequrea wun tne lights and shades of hope and fear, success and disannointrrtent iov anrt sorrow. Were we keen in the investigation of ex amples, we should find them resolvable into two great classes; those who da and those who do not follow home their thought The latter comprise what Wordsworth calls "the dreary waste of man's life," among the former appear the world's heroes whether stood or bad. Homers and Neros, Rieh zis and Shakspeares, Machiavellis and Newtons. Beneficent or Malignant is not now the question ;' was their thought followed home ? Glance for a moment at the world of politics; what changes have been wrought by following a subject home. A A C A At- . -x , , . . J ai iirsi, me pursuit 01 it is laugned at. as an awk ward mistake ; by-and-by statesmen discover that there is something in it, and "get up" its elementa ry principle. At last a voice gives utterance to the ripened and multitudinous thought of a people and the matter is settled, whether it be food- emancipation, or forest abolition. If followed home, how much pass'od off as leina would be detected as nothing more than seemina : ostensible reality would stand confessed a mockery 1 I T a .a - anq a snam. now much that has been regarded with awe, would prove to be "pillared rotteness." We should get at the tru materials for writing insiory. A-any secrets would come to light; and the reason why, for many a struggle, be laid bare. All the world is kin ; and we should not unfreo ueni- ly find that had the victor followed the vanquish ed home, he would have seen cause to lament his victory. Links of union wonld present themselves; where nothing was looked for but points of repul sion. How much of modest worth would be brought to the day, and made exemplary, if follow ed home, which is now obscured beneath incxper ience, or grinding necessity. Shyness and awk wardness in public would, when" followed home, be found manifested in heroic endurance, or effus ive tenderness. Pretence and plausibility, whether clad in rass or attended by laced footmen, would hardly survive the following home. Track yon whining, coatless, and shoeless beggar to his laii ; the shiver and whine have given place to a bold tone and rude bearing, as equipped with coat and shoes, he sits down to a recherche supper. Softness of speech, and suavity of demeanor would no longer be a cloak for nefariousness ; nor sanctimoniousness for sincereity. Take that man at the dinner party; he is the life and soul of the company. His observa tions are received with respect, and his witticisms with applause. Over wine and walnuts he has descanted on all that js noblest in public virtues. He has demonstrated what a public man had ought to be, aad sketched a character whose per- r ; i.i -i ii i - . . , icuuuiia ivuuua reuuncne an accordances; but tol low him home! As his knock sounds at the door, his little children1 shrink away and hide themselves in corners; his servant obeys tfie summons doubt ingly, and his wife trembles ; for too well she knows that the public moralist is a private tyrant Po litical theorizing brings no domesic amenities; so easy is self-deception when not followed home. Man is said to be a social animal ; but perhaps for social we ought td write gregarious. There is a going in a common direction ; a union for warmth, protection, and procuring of food, as with the quad ruped herda But where is the ministering spirit, the genuine, active sympathy that promts to follow home. How much crime, generated by ignorance and error, might be mitigated and prevented if fol lowed home ; how much virtue, trembling in the balance, be preserved intact Who has not at some time or other, been followed home by a strange dog? How beseechingly the animal looks up when you reach your door; confiding in his in stinct, yet doubting his reception. What has led him to single out you among all others ? Friend less, be seeks a friend to be to him instead of his lost master. The poor may not follow the rich to his house, yet how many heart-stricken mourners come forth every day into the streets of our towns and cities impelled by a desperate hope that some touch of sympathy would reach them at last For years that faint and flickering gleam of hope is all that has kept them alive. Brightest and most fair in the morning it wanes at noon, and at night when they retrace their weary steps home wards is spent dead; only to be resuscitated by the blessed un conciousness of sleep, or by a following home. And it is consolitory to reflect that misery is oftimes followed home ; that oil is poured into smarting wounds, and whispers of hope into folorn and dreary minds; Btit the sisters of charity are comparative ly few ; and the sympathies of the time are for a following home that shall ameliorate rather than alleviate. . On the whole we may conclude that the prac tice of following home would, in many ways, be productive of good. The philosopher who wished for a window in every breast might have found this ho unworthy substitute. But here, theory and practice are hardly to be reconciled. It is not likely that communities would submit to the social espoinage involved in a general system of following home. The possibility of such a system, however, might not unprofitably be kept in mind ; and each one, on arriving at his own door might ask himself tne question how should I act if followed home ? Eliza Cook's Journal. Fro-n the London Standard of Freedom. Tii r key. Kossuth's Doost-The last mail from Constan tinople brought us the news that the question re garding the Hungarian refugees was finally settled between Russia and Turkey. The Times exulting ly assured us that the terms proposed by the Porte had been accepted by the Czar; and the Ambas sador of England and France having expressed their satisfaction with these terms the question was settled. What are these terms? We thought that the point in question was the inviolability of the hospitality of Turkey ; the refusal to allow the Emporer of Russia to interfere with the Turkish reception of fugitives that were no subjects of his. That to assert this right the Sultan defied the threats of Russia, and that England and France avowed to defend Turkey in its honorable resolve. For this Franoe and England advance their fleets to the Dardanelles; there is a big and blustering air assumed by the Three Powers; there is a great offence manifested by Russia, immense dudgeon by its Ambassador, a prodigous running to and from ofEffendis and Envoys, and so eventually the thing is arranged. But how arranged ? Arranged, says the Ttme quite to the satisfaction of all par ties. Dembinsky and the rest of the Poles are to be expelled from Turkey Kossuth and his fellows are to be imprisoned for life in some fortified town in Central Asia ! Is that the arrangement so satisfactory to all par ties ? To Turkey, to England and to France ? Was it for that that there was" so much mouthinfr and frowning, so much blustering and menacing of war : vv ny, wnat would Jttussia or Austria desire more, except the actual delievery of the refugees to the tender mercies of their gibbets? So far aS the honor of Turkey, France and England are con cerned, the question is fairly conceded to the insol ent and overbearing Czar. After all the pretence of defiance, the .three Powers have cowed and given up thre affair. So far as the honor of Turkey was concerned, it fay in preseving tbe inviolability of hospitality given to the refugees. But is ex pulsion from .the kingdom, at the dictum of haughty Kussian; such mviolabity ? The sentence pronounced 6ri ftie' Poles; however li bearable. They can r'encfove" themselves froiri the .fero cious demands, of the Russian, and ihe feeble swagger of Turkey; but for Kossuth and hiscom-p'ahions-what doom, short of that of the scaffold or the gallows,coufd Russia desire more. They are not to be allowed to remove themselves to a more secure arid hospitable region: They are to be kept safe safe from proceeding to England, where the very presence of Kossuth would stamp sentiments of disgust and contempt for Russian barbarian's brutal lorce, already so unequivocally pronounced. The Sultan has, in fact, after all his bravado, consented to become the jailor of Nicholas, and has' converted the boasted hospitality of the Mus sulman into the creeping treachery of a terrified bully. . And England, we are told, has" consented to tnisrris pertectiy satisfied with the arrangement What! was it for this that enthusiastic public. meet ings were held all over the country the audacious demands of Russia denounced the spirit of Tur key applaused and our Government called upon to protest, most decidedly against everv concession to a demand so insolent and so disgraceful ? If that were all, we are altogether mistaken in the views and feelings of the people of England. It never could be the intention of the public to oe contented with the imprisonment of the Hun garian refugees for life, by way of Turkish hosoita lity. It never could be for any such end that our iiovernment, acting under the impulse of public feeling, ordered the british fleet to the Dardanelles, and announced support to Turkey. Support in its becoming turnkey to the Czar ? Support in the perpetual imprisonment of Hungarian chiefs at the demand of Russia ? Tbe British public regarded Kossuth and his companions as men who had been heroically and rightfully defending their Constitu tion and their country.- They regarded the inter ference of Russia, in the attempt to put down the liberties of Independent Hungary, with undisguis ed and unmitigated resentment They still regard Kossuth and his companion's as no subject of Rus siaas ameriabfe to' rid demands from it as the guests, and not the prisoners of of the Porte ; arid, consequently, as at liberty to depart arid take up their abode where they will. But, says the Times, the conduct of Kossuth, and his companions is now most ungrateful. England and r ranee have NUMBER 48. saved them from the clutches of Bussia and the gallows, and now they are most indignant at the idea of being held as perpetual prisoners 1 It is plain that Kossuth and his comrades re garded the assurances of Turkey, and the Droiects of England and France, precisely as the people -of mis country regarded tne bona Jiae expression of resistance to all demands of Russia concerning the fate and the liberties of the refugees. We shall be greatly mistaken if the English public rest satisfied in the present extraordinary arrangement We cannot believe that it can have meant nothing more than a hectoring defiance to Russia, and then a quiet submission to its will. We are aware that a courier has reached this country in all speed from Kossuth, and we trust that the public will not suffer Lord Palmers ton to want its aid and countenance in demanding from Turkey an actual and not a sham resistance to the Russian assump tion. The Times says, with a chuckle Cobden boasted that he would crumple up the Russian pow er ime a pit oi paper, ana mat xtussia immediately laid Hungary at its feet that Cobden denounced tbe Austrian loan, and it was immediately raised. That paper pursues its steady course, maligning the defeated Hungarians and Italians, in every possible manner blackening the character of the most distinguished of the ladies and it may now add to its demoniac triumphs the taunt that the English people protested against the audacity of Russia. Ana mat audacity was immediately crowned by tbe quailing of the Turk, and the ig nominous acquiescence of England's own Embas sador in the infamous submission. We wait for further indications of the public mind on this sin gular subject j , ax Indian Jngglers.'; : j One of the men, taking a large earthern vessel, with a capacious mouth, tilled it with water, and turned it upside down, when all the water flowed out: but the moment it was placed, with the mouth upwards it became full. ' He than emptied it al lowing any one to inspect it who chose. This being done, he desired that one of the party would fill it ; his request was obeyed ; still, when he reversed the jar, not a drop of water flowed and upon turning it, to our astonishment, it was empty. I ex amined tne jar caremiiy when empty, but detected nothing which could lead to a discovery of the mystery. I was allowed to retain and fill it my self; still, upon taking it up, all was void within, yet the ground around it was perfectly dry, so that how the water had disappeared, and where it had been conveyed, were problems which none of us were able to expound. Ihe vessel employed by the jugglers on this oecassion was the common earthenware of the country, very roughly made ; auu, luuiucr tu uuiituiue iw mat it naa not oecn especially constructed for the purpose of aiding bis clever deceptions, he permitted it to be broken in our presence ; the fragements were then handed round for the inspection of his highness and the party present with him. The next thing that en gaged our attention, was a feat of dexterity alto gether astonishing. A woman, the upper part of whose body was entirely uncovered, presented her self to our notice, and taking a bamboo, twenty feet nign, piacea h uprignt on a nat stone, and then, without any support, climbed to1 the top of it with' surprising activity. Having done this she stood upon one leg on tbe point of the bamboo, balancing -it on nie wuue. iwunu ner waist sne naa a girdle, to which was fixed an iron socket: springing from her upright position on the bamboo; she threw her self horizontally forward with such exact precision that the top of the pole entered the socket of the iron zone, and in this position she spun - herself round with a velocity that made me giddy to look at tne bamboo an the white appearing as u it were supported by some Supernatural agency. She turned her legs backwards, till the heels touch ed the shoulders, and grasping the ankles in her hands, continued her rotations so rapidly, that the outline of her body was entirely lost to the eye, and she looked like a revolving ball. Having per formed several other feats equally extraordinary, she slid down the elastic shaft, and raising it in the air, balanced it upon her chin, then upon her nose. and finally projected it a distance from her, -with; out tne application oi ner hands, She was an elderly woman, and by no' means pTposessing in her person; which; I conclude; was the reason that the rajah, though he applauded her dexterity, did not. give ner a prooi oi nis iioeranty. we, how ever, threw her a few rupees, with which she ap peared perfectly satisfied. The Oriental Annual. The Working Men of Paris. The condition of the working mani in Paris, who has occupation, is by no means such as to make him fretful with his lot, if he has not the misfor tune to be weak enough to listen to' the language of exitement" The ldwest Cages' paid to working man 2t 50c per day. This is the mere laboring man, the Komme de peine. The mason the carpen ter, the smith, &c, earns from from 3f to Si per day. Let us, howerer, take the very lowest rate of wages, and see how the laboring man who' nt single can live. - His room will cost him, if he has not furniture of his own, at the rate of 5 sous per day. He will require two pounds of the best bread, (in Paris the workmen w ill' not eat bread of the second quality ; this will cost six sous. For his" breakfast he can have at the milk shops which supply work men, a large basin of cafe an lait, sweetened, for four sous, or a basin of soup, with a ' good sized piece of boiled beef for six sous. At dinner in the eatirig houses', where workmen congregate, he can have a good plate of ragout, in which of course the vegetables prevail, or even a rosbif aux legumes for four sous, and a cinquieme (a large ruriimcr full) of wine for two sous. At each of these meals he finds his own bread, and in the evening he has enough left, with another cinquieme of wine for two sous, to make a good supper. Thus be will expend for food and lodging either seventeen of nineteen sous, say the latter and thirty -one sous will remain for clothing washing, fec. If the workman has a wife and family, the case ?s, of c'cnirse different; but tbe wife may be able to earn something, and the children, if sufficiently old,- can add to' tire earn ings of the father. A boy ten or twelve; if he be intelligent arid honest, can earn from seven t&' ten francs a week, as an en-arid boy: I fyive spoken here only of the (east well paid of Working cfasses.
