¦ WENLEIA PHILLIPS. Jlr. Phillips came. from the patrician class of Massachusetts—that is to say from the narrowest and most exclusive aristocracy, next to the South Carolina planters, that ever offended high heaven by their mimicries of English social heathenism in America. His father was the first mayor of Boston, a man of wealth and assure social position, and for thirteen or fourteen successive years the president of the Senate of Massachusetts.! His family came over in the "Arabella," the ship.that followed the "Mayflower." The father of Wendell Phillips was a man of courtly andpopular'manners. He was chosen mayor of Boston, through a union of all the parties, by 2,600 out of the 2,800 votes thrown. These was nothing in the early life, any more than in ths early. surroundings of Wendell Phillips that gave promise of his coming career. At college he was a daily fencer and boxer, and acquired some skill in both of these departmentspf the "manly art." He was never in the oppos...

He lives in a self-governing country—that is. a country where the people govern hemselves, and he is content to let others govern him. I wish you could see some of them. He says he don't like the candidates. " Well, then vote on the other side." " But I like them still less. ¦ ' Then take the best you can get. If you ate stuck in the mud, yon don't wait for dry gioimd. You take the best way out, even if it be a muddy one." " But I don't like the way. things are managed." " Well, then, take hold and help manage them better." He shrugs his shoulders. I'll tell you the reason he does so—it is too much trouble for him to attend to his dlAy. I htwe met this man before.

What it Costs to jieep a Hotel.— The New York correspondent of the Cincinnati Gazette writes : "Speaking of hotels, do you know how extensively the accounts of a first-class establishment foot up in the course of a year? The bills of a first-class hotel for supplies are enough to support a good many small families, especially if they practice economy, and don't keep dogs and horses and Saratoga trunks. For example, I will give you some items from the balance sheet of the Astor House, the oldest first-class hotel in the city. The Astor House pays seventy-five thousand dollars a year for groceries, including $9,000 for flour and $22,000 for butter. [Who would suppose that its butter would cost nearly three times as much as its fltur t but so they tell me.] The marketing bill-is about $150,000—they pay one man from forty-five to sixty thousand dollars for beef alone, and the balance of the $150,000 goes for mutton, veal, pork, poultry, vegetables, fish, &c. The milk and cream...

A Model Husband.—He walks out with his wife on a week day, and is not aft aid of a Milliner's shop. He even has "change" when asked for it, and never alludes to it afterward. He is not above carrying a large bundle or a cotton umbrella, or even holding the baby in his lap in an omnibus. He runs on first to knock at the door when it is raining. He goes outside if the cab is full. He goes to bed first in cold weather. He gets up in the night to rock the cradle or answer the door-hell. He believes in hysterics, and is melted instantly by a tear. He patches up ii quarrel with a velvet gown, and drives away the sulks with a trip to the Central Park. He never flies out about his buttons, or brings home friends to supper. His clothes never smell of tobacco. He respects the curtains, and never smokes in tho house. He never invades the kitchen, aud would no more think of "blowing up" any of the servants than of ordering the dinner. He is innocent of a latch key. He lets the family go out...

What we owe to Decokum.—"I will do just as I please !" says many a headstrong young man, "for whose business is it if I choose to take the consequences ? Not so fast, good sir. If you knew more of human aature you would-be aware that you cannot outrage even the smallest conventionalties of llfe,.which are known under the common name of decorum, without injuring your reputation, estranging' your friends, and preventing strangers, who might be useful to you, from making your aeouaintance. But this is not all. You have no right to disregard decorum, for the consequences reach others than yourself. Your example is doing harm when it should he doing good. Your conduct affects ,'he standing of your family and associates, as well as yourself. ^ Going through life is like treading a lp.barynth of spring guns. If you follow the beaten track, yyu are yourself. But if you diverge to the right or left, your indiscretion is sure to injure yourself, and may harm others also. A wise man never ...

Geowth of Gueat Mex.—Great minds mature slowly. It is not unusual to find that the leading men of our day, were very unpromising boys. Daniel Webster, the acknowledged statesmen of America, was notoriously dull when a boy, a poor scholar in college, and giaduaied without honor. Henry Ward Beecher, was a fourth-rate scholar when young, and completed his studies without distinction, except on the play-ground. Robert Rantoul stood near the foot of his class in college. Sir Walter Scott was called a dullard when a hoy. Patrick Henry, whose oratory stirred the" hearts of the F. F. V's, was too stupid a boy to keep on the shady side of the tree under which he would lie, like an unthinking brute, the live-long day. How often are we startled to find that the dolt whom we pitied, if we did not deride, in our school days, is now the astute lawyer, the skilled physician, the profound writer, or the princely merchant; leaving us, once his superiors, wondering.

It was old Izaak Walton who said. "Every misery that I miss is a new mercy;" a saying worthy of the pr.foundest philosopher. It is only too true that misfortunes come to us on wings, but retire with a limping pace; and yet one-half the world are ready to meet calamities half way, and indirectly to welcome them. There isscarcely an .evil in life that we cannot double by pondering upon it; a scratch will thus become a serious wound and a slight illness even be made to end in death, by the brooding apprehension of the sick; while, on the other hand, a mind accustomed to look on the bright side of all things, will repel the mildew and"dampness of care by its genial sunshine. A cheerful heart paints the world as it sees it like a sunny landscape ; the morbid 'mind depicts it like a sterile wilderness.

Nothing annoys a man more than to be eagerly questioned when he conies home iired. Give him a neatly served dinner, or a pair of easy slippers and a cup nf tea and let him eat aud drink in peace, and in time he will tell you of his ow,i p.oper notion all you wish to know. But if you he ^ in at the tack too soon, the chances aie -hat you will be rewarded by curtly snpkeu monosyllables. Put down that piece of wisdom in your note book girls; it will serve you well some dav. When the clergymen makes man and woman one, the dispute generally arises as to which is ths one. The question is sometimes difficult to settle. "Toby, what did th« Israelites do when they crossed the Red Sea?" "I dunno, but-I gueth they dried themselves."
