MiJifillaiiffii . . . . ... . , ,. SUCCESS. _^ , - Mr. Smiles, the biographer of George Stephenson, has written a book called Self-Help:, in which he has collected' a wonderful number of stories showing how men get on in the world. The literary merit of the work is very great, and few authors have so successfully surmounted the difficulty of weaving into a connected and pleasant narrative a long string of anecdotes. But as the volume must be read to have justice done to it , and as we could scarcely notice its contents in detail without extracting pages of quotation, we wish to pass over the book itself md%£ lightly than it deserves, and merely refer generally to the great subject of which it treats. If the golden calf was interesting, as we may suppose it to have been, to the Israelites, success must be interesting to Englishmen. How some men do what thousands of others long to do, is a problem worth solving. Mr. Smiles solves it with tolerable fulness and accuracy. Men succe...

For *ne American Presbyterian. ; STAUD UPJFOR JESUS. The following lines were written by a Sabbath Schoo scholar, shortly after the death of the Rev. Dudley A lyng. They were suggested by the last words of thai lamented clergyman. Stand up for Jesus—send the word To earth's remotest bound, 'Till all the nations of the world Are joyful in the sound. tl fie saw _tis ruined in the fall, And left his starry crown; " To save this world from sin and wo, On wings of love came down. Then stand up—stand up for Jesus, Who dwells above the sky | Who, gave His life, that you might live, And not forever die. Stand up—stand up for Jesus, As all the righteous do; _" And then before His Father—God-He will stand up for you. > Stand up for _Jeaua, ye who tread The heavenly paths of peace; Stand up for Jesus, and your lights, Let not their burning cease. Be watchmen in the way of life, To guide the wanderer home; Show htm his Saviour on the cross, And sweetly bid him come. Stand up for Jesus,...

THEBAINYDAY. The bright blue sky was obscured by clouds of a dark, gloomy, leaden hue. The northeast wind blew chill and disagreeable, and the rain was falling in torrents. Every place looked desolate and cheerless; with a melancholy voice the cattle were lowing, and the sheep bleating upon the hill-sides, and the birds were driven to seek: shelter from the rain. Little Sophie Lester was standing by the window with her face pressed close against the glass, and gazing out upon the muddy road, she was vainly trying to see some object that would interest her. At last she turned around to her elder sister, who was sitting near, and said;—"Sister Alice, don't.you hate the rain?'7 " Hate the rain! 0 no, my darling 1? said Alice, looking up from her sewing. . "Well I do, Alice, I can't tell how much !" exclaiuied Sophie, stampitig her footto give emphasis to her words. - !J • : , . " But that is very wrong, Sophie; you know that God sends the rain, and therefore it is right; and besides ...

A CAPITAL TEICK THAT ENDED WELL Here is a good story which we have just heard, A young man (a brother to "Sly Boots" perhaps, for like her he enjoyed a good joke,) was studying in College. One afternoon he walked out with one of his instructors, 'arid they chanced to see an old pair of shoes lying by the side of the path, which appeared to belong to a poor man at wbrk close by. " Let us have a little amusement at his expense," said the student; " Suppose we hide these shoes, and conceal ourselves in the bushes to watch his perplexity when he cannot find them." "I can think of a better trick than that," said* the instructor. "You are rich, and suppose you put a silver dollar in the toe ef each shoe and then we will hide." The young man did so. The poor man finished his work-soon, and went to put on his shoes. Ifou can imagine his surprise, when he stooped down to take out a pebble, as he supposed, from the toe, and found it-to be a hard dollar, and then his absolute perplexity ...

HOW T0 .GBW PEACHES EVERY YEAE_, The following, by a _correspondent of tKe Ohio Cultivator , is worth a trial by all. lovers of delicious fruit: "Procure your trees grafted upon the wild plum stock. The tree partakes of the nature of the plum, being hardy, and will never winter-kill , and, putting out late in the spring, will never be injured by the frost, and it is a' certain preventive against the workings of the peach grub, while the natural lifetime of a tree is beyond that of our own; so you may depend upon peaches every year, and for a long period of time, without the destructive and discouraging influences attending the growth of the common peach. They, ean.be obtained from fifty to seventy-five cents per tree, and you had better pay five times the amount than _cbtvtb obtain them, and be cerfcain._of peaches every year. Try it, and our word for it, you will _*be satisfied with the result." _,

"." _t -- w _mm <w. ' ' _IVogB.—An enterprising citizen of Few Jersey has prepared ponds for the purpose of raising frogs , for the table. There these amphibious vocalists are advanced from the tadpole degree to the maturity of froghood", when they are subjected to a rap on the head, which effectually retards, their growth and impairs their musical powers. The posterior limbs are then divested of, their natural covering and sent to market, where they readily command the price of one dollar per hundred at wholesale.

TENDERNESS OF CONSCIENCE A growing tenderness of conscience with regard to the strictness of the Divine Law and the exceeding evil of sin, is one of the most decisive marks 'of ' an advancing Christian experience. The nearer the soul lives to God, the more will it abhor sin and avoid the least appearance of evil. The purer it is from sin the quicker will it detect in itself the least taint of transgression, just as a dark object grows darker as the ground on which it Iks grows lighter. The pure white snow will be stained by that which would be scarcely; perceptible on the earth y soil; so a Christian soul will painfully feel the touch of a thought of transgression Which persons of less tender susceptibility commit without scruple. We love to «think of the apostle John as writing his epistles in a good old age, far advanced in piety and knowledge, and in them he shows a deep tenderness of conscience with regard to all sin. .His words are, All unrighteousness is sin; i. e. Tibt'...

JPor the American Presbyterian. _INFLUENCE OF MIM& IN HISTORY. History is divided into epochal points and periods, bu^; the continuous line of connection running from creation binds together these periods, and reveals the/ mutual influence of mind. Thus the sparks of liberty struck in Switzerland and other countries, are dormant for a season, but at last the latent fire breaks out in an American revolution. The mind of Plato conceived the immortality of spirit. This belief lay in the human mind for centuries, a mere idea ; but that idea found development and proof in -e divine Revelation. That idea was once a theory or a speculation, and not capable of proof. Seeds may lie dormant in the swathes and wrappers of a Pharioric mummy for1 three thousand years, and yet ripen in modern sojl. So a mysterious principle may lie sleeping in the chambers of the human mind, and centuries after awake for action. Thus we see the influence of mind upon mind in our lives and actions. H...

HOW THEY LIVE IS TVB_.KEY. A pasha dreams away life very pleasantly in his white marble paTaee, and shady gardens, and gently gliding caique. These are better than dinner parties and balls, which some people call " civilization.""" It is the means of getting these things—the worse than brigand way of going about it—which is so frightful here ; indeed it is difficult to express the painful impression made on the mind in this beautiful ¦ country, on seeing its wretched sfate, and the open infamy of its rulers. It is notorious that most of the provincial judges live on the banks of the Bosphorus, expending in every luxury their monthly _salaries of so many piasters. They sell or Jet their places to the Highest bidder y often, to some ignorant clerk or assistant in their own office, who may have saved a little money, and who extorts a living by extra imposts, or taxes on the unhappy people, over whom he places himself as a tyrant, not to be dislodged until he can return heavily la...
