A PRACTICAL, SlKJUlisnOX. In any public scheme or project, it is advisable that tho proposer or pro jector should not at first present him self to the public as the sole mover in the affair. His neighbors will not like his egotism, if it be at all ambitious, nor will they willingly co-operate in anything that may place an equal a single step above their own heads. Dr. Franklin was the first projector of many useful institutions iu the in fant state of America. lie attained his object, and avoided envy, for he. himself, in forms us that bis secret was to propose tho measure first, not as originating in himself alone, but as a joint recommendation of a lew friends. The doctor was no stranger to the workings of the human heart; for if his measures bad failed, their failure would not bo attributed to him alone, and if they succeeded, some one (dsn woultl bo forward enough to claim the merit of being the lirst planner of i them. Cut whenever this happens, j the original projector will be sure to j gain from the envy of mankind that j justice which ho must not expect from their gratitude; for all the rest of the members will not patiently see anoth er run away with the merit of that plan which originated in the first pro jector alone, who will, therefore, be sure to reap his full due of praise iu tho end, and with that interest which mankind will always cheerfully pay, not so much for the justice of reward ing the diffident, as for the pleasure of lowering the vain. THE ART OF PLEASING. A modest and virtuous young man 0:1 lirst going into society, is apt to be sorely perplexed upon the question, how to make himself agreeable wilh the ladies. He need not be ashamed of his perplexity. Washington Ir ving, in one ofhis early sketches, con- Jesses that a well-dressed lady was an ouiec peue a.u. .u uIO r. , . i.. r. .1' .imagination. c were onceacquain ted with a gentleman of distinction in public life, the father of several ac complished daughters, who could not, oven to his fiftieth year, enter a drawing-room, when ladies were present, .without-painful embarrassment. It is certainly a good sign in h young man to stand in some awe of the beautiful sex. A perron of course and vulgar mind, who thinks more of himself than his best friends think of him, and who knows littlo of the worth of a good woman's heart, rushes fear lessly in where an Irving or an Addi son would fear to tread. IIow well we remember a little in cident of our early days, w hich helped iis to overcome our bashful dread of 4he society of ladies ! Seated by the side of a beautiful girl of seventeen, and overwhelmed with a conscious ness of our inability to say anything to her which she would care to hear, we chanced to observe that she, too, was trembling with embarrassment. What a comforting discovery ! We felt as a coward feels when he finds that his enemy is more terror-stricken than himself. Addressing ourselfu to the task of diverting our fair ac quaintance, we soon forgot our own fears in sympathy wilh Le rs. Hear this in mind, young gentlemen, who blush ahd stammer in the company of ladies : The girls are as much afraid of you as you are of them I You are awkward in your manners, yon think. If you think so, it islikely that your fair friends think otherwise; for the really ill-bred fellows that we have known have never suspected their ill-breeding. AnJ, after nil, what is good-breeding lut habitual goodnature? Tho simples fact that you wish to please is a proof that you possess, or will noon acquire, tho pow er to do so. Tho good heurt and well informed mind will soon give grace to the demeanor, or will so abundantly atone for it, that its absence will nev er be noticed. Besides, the girls that is, the most of them like a man who is simplo in his manners, provided they gee that there is substance and'worth in him. Graceful manners and ready wit nre good so far. Hut be sure of tlji, (.), bashful, blushing youth, that you will pa.ss in the long run for what you are worthno more no less. The Art of Pleasing, therefore, is nothing more than tin; art of becoming an honest, kind, intelligent, ami high minded man.

Take earnest bold of life, and never regard yourself in tiny oilier liht than that of being des tined to ti high and noble purpose. Si udy closely tho bent of your own j mind for labor or a profession. What ever you resolve upon, do it early; follow it steadily and untiringly; never look backward to what you have en countered, but ;il ways forward to what is within your j,rasp.

CMtittaoog(t Advertiser. Number 10. Attention, --Whenever persons vis it n printing oflico they ought to keep tlreir handfi off everytlilng In it. . Tho other day some ono came up Into our oflico, and instoad of looking without interfering, commenced fooling with the press, on which was a form of typo, and ruined' a pairof points, besides a considerable amount of type. The loss is all to us, and ought to learn such pestiferous persons to let alone things about which they know nothing., The following is too good to be lost, oven if it is a hit at principles some greatly revere : Know-Notiiinuism. The editor of & Georgia puper overheard tho follow ing conversation on the the re-opening of tho slave trade : "Clem, I'se tell you, if dey gwine to 'deavors to fetch dem 'imported nig gers oberdis way, which 1 hoar dey be, dare'll be a fuss in do family sure. Spect dey want us to 'asociato wid dem niggers on 'quality, Neberdoit sure." "Sam, dus you raly think dy'llfotch dem niggers here" "For sartin, Clem I heard massa say dare was five thousand 'ported Soul', in Candida, and half of dem now ready in dis State. I tell you, Clem, if one of deni forin, nat'ulied niggers calu'lates to 'sociato wid dis chic, he is hoiu ilc wrong patch. Somethin will bit him like tv mule kicked him for sartin, and it wont't be dal unimule filer!" Too Mi on and too LriTi.fi. Not withstanding the experience of ages and generations, all going to prove that the great fault of man in his uni versal tendency to either under-do or over-tb), tho hardest Ihing in the world is, still moderation. It does seem as il we could not learn that 'enough' was 'as good as a feast,' and that ev ery excess must be compensated by a re;iction. There has long been a great cry that sedentary habits were ruinously unwholesome as no doubt they are, where a man sits tit bis desk ten hours per diem, year in and year out, and rides to and from business. IJut tho French physiologists who, by tho way, are tho greatest statisticians in the world tell us, that the shortest lived class is that which perforins manual labor, and those professions or trades that rnpiiro the least bodily exertion have many more veterans than others. There nre few persons who are compelled to be sedentary in habit more than editors, yet they av erage, ns a class, a very IV' r lease of life while hod-carriers, builders, etc., only exist about thirty yeais. The gymnasium is a source of infi nite mischief to our youth. Properly used, it is of immense value; but as too frequently is tho case, it docs in calculable harm. The performance of dillicult and laborious muscular feats should not be attempted twice or thrice a week by young men who have little exercise generally, for it is inevitably straining to tho glandular system, and too exciting to the nerves. We have seen pale, studious boys go from a college class-room to their dumb-bells aud vaulting-horses, and after an hour of exercise, return still paler, trembling in every limb, and .. ,,., 1.,wt.,,,i i, .! nndnn - - v i - -v i violence of I heir exertions. Such ex ercise can do no good; and, on the con trary, must do no harm. If the training gone through with iu sucli places were very gradual; and continued for a short time only every day, under teachers who understood anatomy and physiology practically it would be all that vvc could desire. As it is, however, it is very apt to bo the "too much," that is quite as bad as and often worse than the "too little," that it is intended to counterbalance ! The body and tho man are so intimate ly and curiously connected with each other that too great care cannot be taken in developing either, lest the oth"r should stiller. Fluency op SrEr.cu The common fluency of epeech in men and womoti is owing (says Swill) to a scarcity of words; for whoever is master of lan guage, and hath a mind lull of ideas will be apt in speaking lo hesitate up, on the choice of both; whereas com mon speakers have only one set of ideas, will he apt in speaking to hcsi. tiite upon tho choice of both; where ;aJ conUnon speakers have only one of jJetta ad one set of words to I , . , , , , K'olhc ,1,e"1 antl thesc aro -wa . ready; so people come faster out of church when it is nearly empty than when a crowd is at the door. Mormons Aposlacizing. It is repor ted that Mr. Kimball, eldest son of lleber C. aud Jos.
