Improvement of those advantages. Wc have a word to say to our readers especially the younger portion of lliein on the importance of improving their leisure time, particularly these long winter evenings, in acquiring knowledge. Mankind ore the most prodigal of time nf any thing else, and yet nothing can atone for the loss til it. When once past no cfl'ort can recall it. Our only course then, is wisely to improve the passing hour, and never suffer procrastination to steal away any fragment of tunc, but improve each moment to the best possible dvantago. Minutes make hours, hours make days and days weeks, months, &c, and if wc arc care less of minutes wc shall squander longer portions of time, until wc may be called complete spendthrifts of that by which wc can acquire every tiling else.
