ECONOMY I1T A TAKILY,
There is nothing which goes so far to
wards placing young people beyond ths
reach of poverty as economy in the man
agement of their domestic affdrs. It mut
ters not whether a man furnish little or
much for his family, if there he a leaking
in his kitchen, much more in the parlor, il
rui s away he knows not how, and thu
demon wasle, cries, more, lik the horse-
leach's daughter, until he that provide
has no more to give. It is the husband's
duty to brinrr info the )w...-, J i .. irc-
duty to see that nothing goes wrongfully
out of it. Not the least article, however
unimportant in itself -to cstnblish a pre.
cedent, not under any pretence; for itojens
the door for ruin to !alk in, and he sel
doni leaves an opportunity unimproved.
,. A man gels a wife to ionic otter his af
fairs and assist him in his journey through
hfe, tnl not to dissipate his propriety.
The husband's wife's care, and the grest
est ambition should carry her no farther
than his welfare or happiness 'together
with that of her children. This should
be her sole aim. and the theater of her
exploits in the bosom of her family, --her
she may do as much towards making
fortune cs he in a workshop or counting
room. It is not the money that makes the
man wealthy it is what he saves of his
earnings. A good and prudent husband
makes a deposite of the fruits of his labor'
with his best friend, and if the friend ba
not true to him what has he to hope? If
he dare not place confidence in the com
panion of tus bosom, where is ho
place it? A wife ads not for herself
only, but she is the agent for many sh8
ores, and she is bound to act for geod
and for her own satisfaction. Her hus
band's good to which she should aim his
approbation her reward. Self-gratifica-tiun
in dress, indulgence in appetite, or
more oompany than his purse can entertain,
are eaiully pernicious the first adds vr.
iety to extravagance; the second fastens A
doctor's bill to a butcher's long account . ,
and the latter brings irdetapYuoce, th
worst of evils in its- train. ' - .. i

Look at this peasant his feced bronzed
with mid-day toil. From sunrise to sr.ft.
set, with cheerful looks and uncomp!tin '
ing words, he turns the primal curse to'
dignify, and manfully earns Ids bread by
ihe sweat of his brow.
And here is a white-haired shepherd. As
a boy, a child playful as the Iambs, he has '
tended, lie labored. He has dreamed
uway his life uon hillsides, on downs, on
solitury heaths; the humble, simple, patient
watcher for fellow-mun. Solitude has
been his companion; he has grown old and
wrinkled, bent in the eye of the burning
sun. His highest wisdom is a guess at
ihe coming weather; he may have heard
oT diamonds, but he knows the evening-'
U;r. He is, to our mind, a most reverend
knight of the fleece. Dovglcs Jerrold,
