" Sc I had plenty of work to d®, and an abundant lack of indulgence to enjoy. It was, consequently, a great treat for me to get the enormous sum of one or two pennies into my possession, by any sort of good fortuue—a circumstance of such rare occur- rence that, at the age of eleven, I had learned to regard money as a blessing bestowed by Providence only on a favorite few.

One evening lately at Baden, iu a con- versation relating to the feeling of fear and repugnance, still entertained by a few superior persons, (Rossini amongst ihem,) at the bare idea of a journey by railroad, some one was te.ling the story of a young Venetian, Count Florezan G. Elegant, witiy and brave, tlie Count bad proved his courage on various occasions; but the coolness aud strength of mind that he exhibited on every poiut, vanished en- tirely at the sight of a railroad station.

<L n m The Soundings fbr the Atlantic Telegraph. The following account, addressed to the editor of the Illustrated London News, will be read with interest: "Not a single rock has been met with, not a particle of gravel or sand has been brought up, but it appears as if nature had provided a bed,' soft as a snow bank,'to use Maury's own words, for the express purpose of receiving a telegraph cable. "Lieut.: Berrymán says that he is sat isfied that the lead, with the sound- ing apparatus, has frequently buriedjt self ten or fifteen feet deep in this soft material, and he doubts not that the cable will likewise sink and imbed it- self in a similar manner. The great- est depth attained has been two thou- sand and seventy fathoms, (about two and a third miles ;) but perhaps the most remarkable and at the same time the most satisfactory result is the per- fect confirmation which these sound- ings give of the opinions expresed by Lieut. Maury as tp the existence of a great flat or level ...

w §mm Never Give Up. Never give up, it is wiser and better Always to hope than once to despair: Fling off the bond of doubt's cankering fetter, And break the dai k cbaiu of tyrannical care- Never give up, or the burden may sink you, Providence kindly has mingled the cup, And in all trials, or i roubles, oethink you The watch-word ol life must be, never give up. Never give up, there are chances and changes, Helping the hope fui a hundred to one. And thro' the chaos High Wisdom arranges Ever success, if you only hope on. Never give up, for the wisest is boldest, Knowing that Providence mingles the cup, And of all maxims the best arid the oldest, Is the true watchword of never give up.
