Not one man in five hundred
will , make a fortune. Uut a compe
' tence and an independent position is
within the reach of most men. This
; is obtained most surely by patient in
' dustry and economy. . If a man has
. ordinary talents and ability in any
profession, or business, or trade, he
can, by pursuing an. economical, per
severing course, be pretty sure of final
ly obtaining an independent position
.in life. Let his expense fall below
Lis income. Let him live cheap, very
cheap, if necessary, but let him be
sure and make his income more than
cover his expense. It can be done in
almost all cases, notwithstanding
the positive denial of ever so many
housekeepers. A man may not have
more than two or three hundred dol
lars a year, and may have a family a.y
large as that of John Uodgers, and he
can find a way to live comfortably,
and lay up something besides. There
is much, nay all, in knowing how the
thing is done. ' And that is the very
thing people who are going to make
money have got to learn. It is won
derful how few real wants we have,
and how little it takes to give us gen
uine happiness. If we could get rid
of our artificial, senseless, and expen
sive way of living, we should find our
selves better oil' in purse, in prospect
and in heart. Let any one who has
any ambition to go ahead in life, try
the experiment this year, and see how
mucti virtue there is in economy.
Make your expense less than your in
come, and sec how much you will
have gained, not only in money but
in the feeling that you arc in the con-
. dition which the Yankee denominated
"forehanded." Try it this year.
Sad Hours. Welcome, sad hours!
Welcome ye hours of deep and sol
emn thought! Welcome to those hours
when the mind turns inward to the
recess of the heart, and leads us to
cummune ith our own being. Wel
come, thrice welcome, ye moments of
sacred sorrow. Without the storm
clouds which hover over the heart
with dark threntcnings of devastation
and woe,, or the cold, frigid blasts
which come in contact with the worm
impulses of our nature, we should
travel on through life ignorant of the
most solemn realities of our earthly
existence, and unmoved by the most
powerful sensibilities of the soul with
in. It is not all to look at the bright
panoramic scenes of outward life, all
painted in bright colors, and illumined
by the gilded emblems of Hope and
Love. It is beautiful indeed. So is
the bright flower of early spring, woo
,ed by the gentle breeze, and invigora
ted by the genial influence ofthe warm
sun. But that flower is not all of the
vegetable world. It is but a single
deelopemcnt of unnumbered speci
mens that God has created. Thus it
is with the human heart. Now it is
;nsa picture, tinted with bright colors
now it is all blinded with clouds and
darkness. Happy hours arc gladsome
visitors, and we should ever bid them
welcome. But we welcome them not
alone. Come, ye sad hours, to min
gle with them, say we? Ye may tell
us of sorrow against which our hearts
have struggled, but in vain. Ye may
fo up before us the angry and surg
ing billows of earth's combats and
earth's trials. Ye may speak to us of
the grave of loved ones gone before
.Vs-of blighted hopes of severed ties.
Ye may remind us of our frailty, and
of our mortality. Ye may picture to
us all that is dark and dreary in life,
.and hold us as in chains by thy magic
spell. And for all this, we bid ye
welcome! Come to us, sad hours, and

Foiti ne. -Men complain of fortune
when they ought to complain of them
selves. The germ of happiness is
planted in every human mind. If it

' ' . , HAND. ;
I am not a bashful man, generally
speaking; I am fully as confident and
forward as most of my sex. I dress
well, dance well, sing tolerable, I don't
tread on ladies dresses when I make
my bow, and 1 have no trick of color
ing to the roots of my hair when I am
spoken to. Yet, their was one period
of my lifo, when all my merits seem
ed to my own eyes magnificent, and I
felt very modest, not to say bashful.
It was when I Was in love. Then, I
sometimes did not know where to put.

that in tho said hands and feet con

weighing my idol's perfects. I fell in,

"Mr. Ilaynes, Miss Arnold," snys a
mutual friend, and lo! 1 was desper
ately in love. She was a little fair
figure, with long brown curls floating
over a snowy neck and shoulders, and
falling down on her waist of an en
chanting sky-blue dress. Her large,
dark blue eyes were full of saucy
light, yet, oh! how tender und loving
they could look. (This I found out
Of all the provoking, tantalizing lit
tle coquettes that ever teased the
heart out of a poor man, Susy Ar
nold was tho most bewitching. I
would pass an evening with her,
and go home, certain, that one more
interview would make me the hnppi
est of men; hut the next time 1 met
her, a cool nod, and indiiferent glance
threw down all my castles. She was
very cautious. Not a word did she
drop to make me believe that she lov
ed; and yet her hand would linger in
mine, her color rise if I looked my feel
ing, and her eyes droop, to be raised
again in an instant, full of laughing
defiance. She declared her intention
to be an old maid emphatically, and
in the next sentence declared "1 never
did love, but if 1 should take a fancy
to anybody, I should love him like
like a house a fire. Though,' she
would say carelessly, 'I never saw
anybody yet worth setting my thoughts
I tried a thousand ways to make
her betray some interest in myself.
Propose outright I could not. She had
a way when ever I tried if, of looking
in my face with an air of grave at
tention, of profound interest, that was
equivalent in its effect to knocking
me down, it took all the breath out of
One evening, while there, I was
seized with a violent headache. 1
told her I was subject to such attacks,
and the gipsy putting on a grave face,
gave me a lecture on the subject of
health, winding up with,
"The best thing you can do is to get
a wife to take care of you, and to
keep you from over study. I advise
you to do it, if you can get anybody
to have you."
'Indeed,' I said, rather piqued, 'there
arc only too many. I refrain from a
selection for fear of breaking others
hearts. How fond all the ladies are
of me!' I added conceitedly: 'though
1 can't sec that I am particularly fas
cinating. 'Neither can 1,' said Susy, with an
air of perfect simplicity.
'Can't you?' said I, 'I hoped hoped
,' Oh! that dreadful attentive
face of hers. 'That is, Miss Susy, I
thought, perhaps oh! my head! my
head! and I buried my head in the cush
ion. 'Docs it acho very badly?' she ask
ed tender ly, and she put her cool lit
tle hand in among my curls. 1 felt
the thrill her fingers gave me, all the
way to the toes of my boots. My
head being really very painful, I was
obliged to leave; but, all the way home
tho soft, cool touch, of those little lin
gers lingered upon my brow.
Soon after this it became necessary
for mo to leave the city on business.
An oiler of a lucrative partnership in
the South in the office of a lawyer
friend of mine, mado me decide to ex
tend my trip, and see how the 'land
laid. One thing was certain, I could
not leave homo for months, perhaps
years, without some answer from Su
sy. Dressed in my most faultless cos
tume, and full of hope, I went to Mr.
Arnold's. Susy was in the parlor, at
the piano, alone. She nodded gayly,
as I came in, hut continued her song.
It was, 'I've something sweet to tell
"At those words, I love you! I adore
you!' she gave me such a glance. I
was ready to prostrate myself, but,
sweeping back the curls with laughing
defiance, she warbled, 'But I'm talking
in my sleep."
Then,' 1 cried, 'von love me when
yon sleep? May I think so?'
Ob! yes, if you choose; for 'Rory
O'More says that dreams go by con
traries, you know.' ' -'
I sat down besido her. ' 'Ah!' I said,
sighing, 'Rory's idol dreamed slid ha
ted him.'.
'Yes,' said Susy, "that was the dif
ference between his case and yours."
Wo chatted away for a time. At
last I began.
"Miss Susy, I came up this evening
to tell you that II .'
How she was listening! A bright
thought struck mo ; I would tell her
of my journey, and in tho emotion she
was certain to betray, it would be easy
to declare my love.

She swept her hands across the
keys ofthe piano into a stormy polka.
I tried to see her (ace, but her curs fell
over it. I was prepared to catch her,
if she fainted, or comfort her, if she
wept. I listened for the sobs I fancied
the music was intended to conceal;
but throwing bnck the curls with a
sudden toss, she struck the last chord
of the polka, and said gaily,
'Going away!'
'Yes, for some months.'
'Dear me, how distressing! Just
stop at Levy's as you go home, and
order me some extra pocket handker
chiefs for this melancholy occasion,
will you?'
'You do not seem to require them,' I
said, rather piqued. 'I shall stay some

if you get married, or die, or anything,
let us know.'
'1 have an-ofierto be a partner in a
lawollice in Kentucky,' I said, determ
ined to try her, and if I accept it, as 1
have some thoughts of doing, Ishal
never return.'
Her face did not change. The old
saucy look was there, as I spoke; but 1
noticed that one little hand closed con
vulsively over her watch chain, and
that tin; oilier fell upon the keys, ma
king for tho first lime, a discord.
'Going away forever?' she said, with
a sad tone' that made my heart throb.
'Miss Susy, 1 hope you, at least,
would miss me, and sorrow in my ab
sence.'. She opened hrr eyes with an expres
sion of amazement.
'Yes it might change all my plans,
if my absence would grieve you.'
'Change all your plans?
'Yes, I hope though '
Oh! that earnest, grave luce. My
cheeks burned, my hands and feet
seemed to swell, and I felt cold chills
all over me! I could not go on. 1
broke down lor the third time.
There was an awkward silence. 1
glanced at Susy, lfer eyes were rest
ing on my hand, which lay on the arm
ot the sola, the contrast between the
black horse hair and the flesh seemed
to strike her.
'What a pretty little hand?' she said.
A brilliant idea passed through my

offering it.
She took it between he own, and
she with the fingers said,

eyes tried to talk, mine did then. Her
color rose, the white lids fell over the
glorious eyes; and the tiny hand strug
gled to free itself. Was 1 fool enough
to release it?
What I said, I know not, but I dare
say my wife can tell you. Five min
utes httcr, rny arm encircled the brown
dress, the brown curls fell upon my
breast, and my lips were in contact
with another pair.
Susy and I were married.
A Sedi crr Shot. A young man was
shot at Huntsville, III., a few days
ago, by a young lady whom ho had
dishonored under promises to marry
her. She called upon him, armed
with a pistol, and demanded that he
should either marry her or pay her
eight hundred dollars. He refused,
and she drew the pistol and shot him,
the ball entering the left side and
glancing so that but little injury was
done. She was about to fire the sec
ond time, when she was seized by a
bystander, and prevented from further
attempts. On trial she was cleared.
To be "born with a silver spoon in
the mouth" is a positive misfortune.
In a great commercial country we
find princes to-day beggars to-morrow!
This is no fable, 'tis an every'
day occurrence. Remove that "silver
spoon," 0 man! and replace it with a
useful trade. This will he giving thy
ion a real fortune the substance
instead of the shadow.
Labor is honorable. I Itt "Silver-
spoon" says it is no such thing nor
will ho be convinced of the fact, until
a deep'btroke of poverty and misfor
tune overtakes him, and with crowbar
lever forces open his eyelids. Give

Tub Coolies in Ci.ua. A Virginia
gentleman of intelligence, who re
cently visited Cubn, gives a sad pic
ture of the toils and sufferings to which
the coolio slaves are subjected. They
have nothing like the capacity of tho
negro for labor and endurance, and
yet the same tasks tire imposed upon
them. When not engaged on the field
they herd indiscriminately, men, wo
men, and children, in huts, willi no
semblance to the family tie or obliga
tions, Suicide is common among
them, sometimes ten or a dozen hang
ing themselves at a lime, No provis
ion is made for their return to their
native land, from which they have
been beguiled, and their masters hav
ing no interest in them except to. get
the greatest amount of work possible
out of them during their period of ap
prenticeship, heap upon them an
amount of labor that soon breaks
them down, and often hurries them to
the grave.

When winter winds lire wailing,
And the Monti is howling loud,
And tho lain is coldly falling
From tho darkly low'iing cloud,
How pleasant 'lis Id ncslle

When nil without is dreary,

When the tempest moans "sau weaiy'1

To the pleasant words that come
From the warm hearts in the curnur

Wnen the wanderer's feet are weary
And tho spirit yearns to go

That sweet rest will he given

Returning homo atcloso of day,
Who gently chides my long delay,
And by my side delights to stay?
Who sets for tno the easy chair,
Sets out the room with neatest care,
And lays my slippers ready there?
Who regulates the cheerful fire,
And piles the blazing fuel higher,
A ml bids mo draw my chair still uiglicr?
When sickness racks my feeble frame,
And grief distracts my fevered bruin?
Who sympalhiezs with my pain?
Returning homo at dead of night,
Who urges on a family fight,

We occasionally see. some wealthy,
well-dressed young man looking coldly
and sneeringly down upon a poor but
honest and industrious worker; and at

acquirements would fetch in the labor

To mourn our vain departed hours.
