Ice, a feat performed by exercising
my pedal extremities, I soon reach

about a month. Your readers being

its location, I deem it unnecessary

dependent of all this, Mr. Shatswell
would rather have a half section of
good laud in Nebraska than a whole
county here to-live upon. By the
appearance of rock piles and siu'mps
on the surface of his fallplowing, I
verily believe he istrjing to make
a prairie farm, of this. All that
keeps him here is to maze an effort
to raise some stock for his Nebras

sured she would not object to re
cross the Missouri, and even their

At the age of 29, Mr. Jefferson
was an influential member of the
L'gi-latbre of Virginia. At 30 he
was a member of the Virginia Con
vention ; at 32 a member of the Con
tinental Congress, and at 33 he wrote
the Declaration of Independence.
Alexander Hamilton was only 29
j ears ot age when he was appointed
a L eutt-nant Colonel iu the army ot
the Involution and Aid-de-Cump to
Washington. At 25 he wa-t a mem
ber of the Continental Congress; at
30 he was one of the ablest members
of the convention which framed the
constitution of the United States;
at 32 he was Secretary of the Treas
ury, and organiied that branch of
the Government upon so complete
aud comprehensive a plan that, no
great change or improvement has
since beeu made upon it.
Johu Jay, at 29 years old, was a
member of fhe Continental Con
gress, and wrote an address to the
people of Great Britain, which was
justly regarded as one of the raoBt
eloquent productions of 'the times.
At 32 be prepared the constitution
of the State of New York, and In
the same year wbb appointed Chief
Justice of the State.
Washington was 27 years of ago
when he covered the retreat cf the
British troops at Braddock's defeat,
and the same year was honored by
an ppoinlmcnt as Commander-in-Cbiel
ot the V'fginia foicep.
Joseph Warren wa-s 29 ypiri ot
tge when he delivered the mam 'ta
ble address on the 5th of March
which aroused the spirit of patriot-
ism and liberty in that section of
the country, and at 34 he gloriously
fell in the cause of freedom on Bun
Fisher Ames, at the age of 27, had
excited public attention by the abil
ity he displayed in the discussion of
questions of public interest. At the
age of 30 bis masterly speeches In
defense of the constitution of the
United States had exerted great in
fluence, so that the youthful orator
of 31 was elected to Congiess from
the Suffolk district over the Kevolu
tionary hero, Samuel Adams.
Joseph Story entered public life
at the age of 26; he was elected to
' - SINCERITY.
Among the mauy instances of the
corruption aud degeneracy of this
age, the great aud general want of
.sincerity iu conversation is not the
least. The world is so full of dis
simulation and compliment that
men''' words are hardly any signi
fication ot their thoughts. The old
plainness mid sincerity ; that gener
ous intefriv of nature and honesty
of disposition which argues true
greatness of mind, and is usually
accompanied with undannted cour
age and resolution, is in a great
measure lost. The dialect of con
versation is' nowadays so swelled
with vanity and compliment, and so
surfeited (if you allow the expres
sion) with kindness, that if a man
who lived a century or two ago
should return to the world, be would
need a dictionary to help him to
understand bis own language and to
know the true intrinsic value of the
phrases in fashion. It should pro
voke our contempt to hear the sol
emn expressions or respect and
kindness which pas3 between men
for which there is no occasion. How
great honor and esteem they declare
for one whom they never saw before !
And bow entirely they are devoted
to his set vice, for no reason! Aud
how extremely they are.jcoucerned
(or him yes. and afflicted, too for
I Jctt'fw ! N mill, in j ix'iflcatiiiti
i lii In-How kind ot conversaixii,
that there is no harm done no real
deceit iu compliment. The matter
is well enough so long as we under
stand one another; words are like
money, and when the current value
of them is generally understood, no
man is cheated. However this may
be, it is certain that sincerity and
plainness are out of fashoin, and
that our lauguage,ia running into a
lie. Men have preverted the use of
speech and made it to signify noth
iug. The greater part of the r.on-
vereation of mankind is little else
but driving a trade of dissimulation,
insomuch that it makes a mau sick
of the world to sec the little sincer
ity that is practiced nmoug men.
If tho show of anything bo good
for aught, I am sure sincerity is
better. Why does a man seem to be
what he is not, but because he thinks
it irood to hav such qualities as he
piv ends t ? To counterfeit is to
put -n the appeiraneo ot some real
xjcilencv. Now lh be-Jt way to
teem to Hp anything is to really be
what jou decire to appear. Beside,
it is as much work many times to
make pretense of a good quality as
to have it; and, if a mau has it not,
some one will know it, then all his
trouble to soem to have it is lo6t.
Whenever convenience you may
think to be iu false-hood is soon
v..-; but the Inconvenience of it is
peiif- nil. because it brings a man

Washington had moved to the attic

eyes the tomb that held her dead.
There was no place for stove or

The carpet which was appropriate
to the large rooms and elegant fur
nishings of a mansion, would cer
tainly be an incongruity in the
cottage. As carpets are so essen
tially decorative in nature, there
should be great care given to their
selection. No flowers or birds'
nests, or anything it would be inap
propriate to walk upon ; but rather
some simple design as graceful
scrolls, in quiet colors, which should
be brighter ordarkor than the walls ;
following the artist'6 method which
makes the foreground or background
run iuto the figure' though our own
preference, both on the score of
beauty and ot health, is for polished
hard wood floors,with oriental rugs.
Walls and ceilings should have a
good amount of color on them, not
so much, however, as to be glaring;
and where there are hangings, let
them differ enough to avoid mon
'otony. Throw in a bit of effective
contrast in a chair or rug, then a
spot of vivid color, asbrightl) paiu

produce a charming effect, f - .
Many young people think that an
idle life must be a pleasant one; but
there are none who enjoy so little,
and are such burdens to themselves,
as those who have nothing to do.
Those who are obliged to work
hard all day enjoy their shott per
iods of rest and recreation so much
that they are apt to think if their
whole lives were peut in rest aud
recreation, it wouldbe the most
pleasant of all. But this is a and I
mistake, as they would soon find
out if they mado a trial of lite
they think so agreeable. One who
is never busy can never enjoy rest :
for it implies a relief trom previous
labor; and if our whole time were
spent in amusing ourselves, we i
should find it more wearisome than
the hardest day's work. Recreation
is only valuable as it unbends us;
the idle can know nothing of it.
Many people leave off business and
settle down to a life of enjoyment ;
but they generally find that they are
uot uearly so happy as they were
before and they arc often glad to
return to their old occupation to es
cape the miseries of indolence.
