THE VICTIM. She was just eighteen, the only child of a retired merchant. Never was there a more indulgent father, never a more doting mother. That father had spent thirty long years bending over his desk. How sedulously had he made every entry! How late in the night of _^ every day was it that he found himself running over his "blotter" to see if he had forgotten an item! How to the latest verge of conscience had he gone every Saturday night over the balance-sheets How through wind and rain and storm and snow he had regularly "gone on" to purchase goods twice a year! How many heart-aches he had endured in that "age" of business, in the failure of customers to "pay up;" in their questioning the correctness of some of the entries ; in _listening _£o interminable excuses for want of promptness_^ How often did it happen, When after having done all that he could possibly do_* to ff meet his own notes," the announcement was made just before the clock struck' •**three," that he_^ mus...

LIGHT. Our ladies need also to be taught the value of light, independently of air. "When a gardener," says Johnson , "wishes to etiolate, that is, to blanch, soften, and render juicy a vegetable, as lettuce, celery, etc., he biods the leaves together, so that the li ght may have as little access as possible to their surfaces." In the same manner, the ladies , _instep of opening their petals to the sun, as do the plants naturally and instinctively, cover their faces with veils and parasols to shut out its impertinent rays, and. in ofder that' they may etiolate _themseives as completely as possible. Take some pains _to[( convince your patrons, and especially to cdnvlice mothers of the value of light j assure themy however/that to compensate for the loss of the lilyy where the sun has cast his shadow; he seldom omits to plant the rose. There is a _natural connection between dress arid exercise, although I suspect it ,has never occurred to you to consider dress in this light. Ladi...

SUCCESSFUL MEN. Who are they ? . They are thoso who, when boys, were compelled to work, either to help them, selves or their parents; and who, when a little older, were under the stern necessity of doing more than their legitimate share of labor; who as young men had their wits sharpened by having to devise ways and means of making their time more available than it would have been under ordinary circumstances. Hence, in reading the lives of men who have greatly distinguished themselves; we find their whole youth passed in self-denials, of food, and rest, and sleep, and recreation. They sat up late, and rose early to the performance of imperative duties; doing by day-light the work of one man, and by night the work of another. Said a gentleman, the other day, now a private banker of high integrity, and whom we know had started in life without a dollar: " For years together I was in my place of business at sunrise, and often did not leave it for fifteen and eighteen hours."

EXERCISE. How important _toyman is'bodily exercise ! JSot only does it keep alljour physical organs in vigor and health, but it conduces also to cheerfulness of mind, enabling us to think and, _reason with greater soundness aid facility, than is possible during long periods of idleness and sluggish repose. Walking, equestrianism, manual labor, and gymnastic games are'all desirable, for converting debility into strength, and supplanting the sickly pallor of disease by the ruddy glow of salubrious p leasure. Walking is always available, and a walk in a cheerful frame of mind, with the eyes open for beauty and the air attuned to natural melody, is no despicable exercise. But, as President Hall truly remarked:—" It is rare to find an American man or woman who enjoys taking a walk. Our excessive heat in summer and excessive cold in winter gives us a ready excuse for neglecting this exercise. -But if we would know what the true _enjoypaent of life is, we must learn to walk.

_EERSSVEEAWCE. He who allows Ms app lication to falter, or shirks his work on frivolous pretexts, is on the sure road to ultimate failure. _Let any task be undertaken as a thing not possible to be evaded, and it will soon come to be performed with alacrity and" cheerfulness. The habit of strenuous continued labor will become comparatively easy in time, like every other habit. Thus even men with the commonest brains and the most slender powers, will accomplish much, if they will bat apply themselves wholly and indefatigably to one thing at a time. Sir Chades Napier, when in India, encountered an army of 35,0Q0 Belopehes with 2,000 men, of whom only 400 were. Europeans., He charged them in the centre up a high bank, and for three hours the battle was undecided. At length they turned and led. ' . "/' -- . ..

THE BED BINDING. When I was a little girl, I attended a Sabbath school in which it was the custom to reward good lessons by a little blue ticket bearing a verse of Scripture. Five blue tickets entitled the scholar to a red one, and a certain number of red ones might be exchanged for a book. Once when the time for g iving out the rewards had arrived, my teacher brought to our class a pile of new volumes , bidding us to choose for ourselves. My fancy) as I _^ remember, was attracted by a gaily-bound book, with gilt edges, and profusely illustrated. I resblVed to take that book, and looked most disdainfully on a plainer one, habited in sober black , which was pressed upon ray notice. Reaching my home, I sat down in a favorite corner, to make the acquaintance of my prize. Little friend, imagine my chagrin when I discovered that my treasure was suited only to the most infantile comprehension, and had no charms for me I Tbad been cheated by a fanciful biuding, and for days and weeks...
