A job slighted, because it isapparcntly unim portant, leads to habitual neglect, so that men degenerate, insensible, into bad workmen. "That is a good rough job," said a foreman in our hearing, and ho meant that it was apiece of work, notelogant in itself, but strongly made, and well put together. Training the hand and eye to do work well, leads individuals to form correct habits in other respects, and a good workman is, in most cases, a good citizen. No onu need hope to rise above bis present situation, who suf fers small things to pass by unimprov ed, or who neglects metaphorically speaking, to pick up a cent because it is not a dollar. Some of tho wisest law makers, the best statesmen, the most gifted artists the most merciful judges, the most in genius mechanics rose from the great mass. A rival to a cctain lawyer sought to humiliate him publicly, by saying, "You blacked my father's boots once." "Yes," replied the lawyer unabashed "and I did it well." And by his habit of doing even mean things well, he rose to greater. Take heart, all who toil I all youths in humble situations, all in adverse circumstances. If it bo but to drive the plow, strive to do it well; if only to cut bolts, make good ones; or to blow tho bellow, keep the iron hot. It is attention to business that lifts the feet high up on the ladder. Says tho good book "seest thou a man diligent in Ids business? he shall stand before kings ; ho shall not stand before mean men." riliMNKSS IN THE It lit!

Judge Agnow has just delivered nu opinion which settres 11 vexed qUi tion, and, in our judgment, kikes tho right ground on a 'subject involving nothing more than a social right. Tho npcal before the Court was mado as to tho right of colored people to use the street and railroad ours of the Commonwealth, on which Judge Ag new reversed the decision of tho loiver court on the subject of tho rights of colored passengers. Ilo says that if a railroad company provide scots equal in convenience, comfort and saltty lbr the colored pursongers, there ia no law which will enable them to refuse llto-e seats and demand others. This is Re publican doctrine enunciated by a Re publican .Tud;o m il sustained by a Republican colleague. It involves a principal which nlii'cls the It led ric l ls of all men, and we can favor this right without necessarily insisting that tho black man in entitled to equal so cial right;-.

On tho same principle, railroad companies have a right to set apart cars for ladies.

I have great respect for those rigid laws of the counting room which regulate dealings between man and man, and which make the coun ting room as exact in all matters of time and exchange ns a banking house which ignore friendship, affection, and all personal considerations what soever which place neighbors anil brothers on tho same platform with enemies and aliens, and which make an autocrat of an accountant, who is, at the same time, strictly an obedient subject of his own laws. 1 say it is hard for a man to enter as a perfectly harmonious element into this grand system of business, and sub mit himself to its rigid rules, ami to maintain his position with perfect integrity, and, at the same time, bo a very bad man. To a certain extent, he bows to ami obeys a high standard of life. lie mar not always recognize the moral clement which it embodies. He may take a selfish view of the whole matter, but ho cannot be entire ly insensible to the principle of per sonal honor which it involves, or fail to be influenced by the personal habits which it enforces. Some of the best business men I have ever known. Men who have acquired wealth by rigid adherence to business integrity, who havesnmetimes been deemed harsh, and hard by those with whom they have had business re lations, have shown a liberality and generosity towards objects of charity which have placed them among the world's benefactors. Men who have exacted the Lust fraction of a cent with one hand, in the way of business, have disbursed thousands of dollars with the other in tho way of charity. Dr. Hol land.

It was formerly the custom in Kn laiid to appoint certain persons to ex amine the liodies of tho dead, in order to ascertain and report the cause of 1.11.1 . 1 death, otien persons were termed "bodv-searehors." In the time of "the great plague," in lfiGo, which swept oil' upwards of one hundred and thirty thousand people this important and dangerous olliec was performed by the "ehirurgeons, or surgeons, who were allowed for each service twelve pence, to bo paid out of the estate of the de ceased person, or by the parish in case ho loft no property It is said that 0110 of these "searchers," w no rvjoiccd in the name of Snacks, found his busi ness' increase so much that he could not attend to it "alone. Ho agreed to share the profits equally with any one who would take an equal tharc in the laborand the danger. Those who join ed hi in were said to "go with Snacks," or, more briefly, "to go Snacks;" and hence the phrase came to mean, "to di vide the spoils in equal proportion," or "to go shares, in which sor.se it has become proverbial. Jox says that if a man feels much like getting married, yet imagines he ought not to, the best remedy he knows is to help one of his neighbors to move a house full of furniture borrow about nitic of his children and hear them or)'. If that fails, build up a fire of damp wood, when the smoke in tho room is thickest, hire a woman to scold him about four hours. If ho can stand all these, ho had better get mar ried the next day give L13 wife the pants and be the "silent partner" in the great firm of matrimony. The reme dy is severe, but as every man is lia ble to these things after he yokes him self, it would do no harm to try it be fore. Thkre is dignity about that going away alone, wc call dying that wrap ping the mantle of immortality nlxjut us ; that putting aside with a pale hand azure curtains that are drawn around this cradle of a world ; that venturing awav from home for the first time in our lives, for we arc not dead there is nothing dead to speak of, and we only go off seeking foreign countries not laid down on the map we know about.
