The young lady who is editress of this De

We design making the Young People’s De
partment of the Journal a feature ol our en
terprise. The editress will prepare and com
pile her matter, assisted by young friends in
the city and state. Meantime, while the
young people are preparing to act, we have
the privilege of influence through their col
There is a power that young people are
slow to comprehend: the power within them
selves. They are often heard to exclaim, “I
wish I had this or that;” “1 would like to be
situated in some other way;” or “perhaps I
could better if I had more money to spend”—
little realizing that it is often the lack of
money that brings out our most capable ex
ertions. We can never understand our gift
of character and ability until the way is opened
for their trial.
The possession of money is a strong influ
ence against performance. It bids you rest at
ease. My bright little ladies, you are hardly
aware of the infinite tact you possess. You
are hardly aware of the force of thought you
can bring to bear upon plans and methods, if
you will oidy put forth your little powers.
That tact could arrange circumstances, cover
embarrassments, and with a little wise fore
thought present yourself, and others at your
very beet. If you wish to learn, read an hour
every day; copy at least a page from some
correct writer—lrving, for instance. Be sure
and study one language, at least: you can do
so from books, with some help, later, when
you can find a teacher. If you wish to make
a bonnet, try your best, or ask some one who
knows how. But ah, do not sit down and
say “1 have not money, I can do nothing.”
Mother wit and a level are worth infinitely
more than all.

Extract from address of Wm. Curran, Esq.,
at Medical College Commencement, Little
“ ‘Educate the people’was the dying leg
acy the father of his country left to his chil
dren. ‘Educate the people’ was the unceas
ing exhortation of Jefferson, who enjoined
upon his relatives and friends, after lie was
gathered to his fathers, not to erect any com
memoration of him in marble or bronze,
stating that he wished the ‘four pillars’ of
his life to carry his name in honor to posteri
ty. The last and proudest of these was the
university of his state.”
