prove a thorn to thein. Whispering in
the presence of strangers, without npolo

Tur. DintHtNct. The Springfield
Republican, in commenting upon the two
great events which occupy the attention
of the people and the press, well observes;
"The whole civilized world is thrown into
anguish by the loss of two hundred and
fifty lives, by an accident at sea. Vet it
receives wilh mote of rejoicing than si l
ness, the intelligence that thirty thousand
men have perished in fighting on the
shores of the Mack Sea. Such ere the
incongruities of civilization, and ot en
lightened education, iu this age."
IKFOTtTANT TO T9TJS0 Krih
The history of many of the world's
best men, who have rltsn from poverly tn
positions of honjr and affluence, reveals
the interesting fact, that it was the pos
sesion of a small rash capital in the out
set, which enabled them to sart in the
pith of success, which ever after ntt'ti'!.vl
their fords' cps. The histories of thcu
nand'i of men, unknown to fame, n ho have

parative comfort, atlcit ll.e stimo.ii.ipor

Wilh su.-Ii spin iuiis notio-is, cnnslilul

Ihey soon fall into spetrltliriM habi's ;
they neglect to economise llieir small means
ihey waste their time; they have no f red
purpuse; thy live from hand to mouth;
their reputation for reliability is not good,
and when a luvoruMe opportuni'y occur,
where, by the judicious employment of a
small c; pits'. J iy one hundred dollars
they could commence a profitable business,
such iinuviditals are caught without a cent
in their pockets or an acpiainlaneo who
darn to trust them.
Again, there is a large class of young
men who cherish the belief that the timos
are less favorable now for the successful
development ol small enterprises, than by
Tiiis in a very gre-it mistake. The op
portunities for nijiiey-m..kiiig, especially
frutn small beginnings, are a hundred-fold
more numerous now thin they were twen-
ly-five years ogo.
There is riotelling what may he the pre
ducts now-a-days from even a hundred

ness we have known ninny instances where
individuals, by having on hand rendy-cash.
even to a muallcr amount than thai named,
have been enabled (o obtain full or partial
intercuts in valual.de patents, fr"i which
they soon redized large fortunes. V.
