As the busy season is now approaching,
and by a glance at our advertising columns
it will be perceived that our merchants
are preparing for a heavy Spring trade, we
believe we will be conferring a benefit on
the public generally by publishing an ar

Business. The following article was writ

whose name has become a household word,
throughout the country, for his strict in
tegrity and open-handed liberality.
The rules he has laid down for our in
struction have been bis guide and study
through life, and the proud position he
now occupies has fully proved their truth.
Every parent who would consult the

John Grigg, of Philadelphia, the foun
der of the well-known publishing house
of Grigg &-Elliott, and G. E. & Co., of
which JdpsSrs. Lippincott, Grambo & Co.
are the worthy successors, has favored us
with some points, which his experience hits
taught him it is important for men com
mencing business to observe. His life, it
may be remarked, is another encouraging
ciample of what integrity, united to tal
eht, energy, and good fortune, may hope
to accomplish under our free institutions.
Beginning the world an orphan farmer
boy, he has accumulated, as public opin
ion says, a fortune, and though rich, he
has shown that he understands what few
rich men ever have understood—-that is,
the art of using money wisely, as well as
getting it. In a conversation with him the
Othfer day; he expressed the opinion that
endorsing is a cause of one-half the fail
ures in business, and stated the remarka
ble fact that he never had asked a man
to endorse'a note fdr him in his life. One
great reason of his success, I have been
informed, , among many others, Was his
■power of inspiring confidence—confidence
in his honesty and ability. Many of his
customers dealt with him for years with
out once inquiring the price'of an article.
He says of the complete business man, as
Gen Butler said in his eulogy of Oalh >un
of the statesman, “he should have ini an
eminent degree Hie self-sustaining power
of intellect. He must .posseSs energy and
enterprise, with perseverance and great
mental determination. To inspire confix
dence, which after dll is the highest oj
earthly’•qualities, is a mystical something
whicliis felthutcannot be described.”
But to his opinion in his own language.
1. Be industrious and economical*—
Waste neither time nor money in small
and useless pleasures pud indulgences If
the young ‘can ‘he induced to begin to
save, the moment they enter, on the paths
of life, the way will ever become easier to
them, and they will not fail to attain a
Competency, ahd) that without Jenying
themselves any, of the real necessaries and
comforts of life. Odr people are certain
ly among the most improvident and extra
vagant oh the face of the earth. It is
enough to make the Merchant of the old
school who looks hack and thinks what
Economy, Prudence and Discretion he hod
to brings to bear on his own business, (and;
which are in fact the basis of all success
ful enterprise,) start back in astonishment
to look $t the ruthless yaste and extrava
ganpe of the ago and people. The high
est test of xespeotrfality with me is honest
Vet turned 1 not for tears or outstretched arms,
Not for the anguish of my only child; ,
The Heavenly City, with its untold Charms,
Beyond the river smiled.
Tho gatea of pearl! 1 saw their light B&r— \
Some “ gone before’' awaited me within;
No restless yearnings their sweet rest to maiyfe.
No sickness, sorrow, sin.
But the life angel beckoned me away—
With slaw, weak etepal followed where he led;
Not'yet, be sold, thy rat awhile delay,
There’s work for thoo instead.

2. To industry and economy, add self
reliance. Bo not take toa\ muck advice.
The business man miart the helm

one should Uiink|for himself.

has only to ran to his principal, and- then
implicitly obey the directions ,he may re
ceive, he will never; acquire that aptitude
of perception, and that promptness of de
cision, and that firmness of purpose which
are absolutely necessary to those who hold
important stations. A certain degree of
independent feeling is essential to Ibe full
development of the intellectual character.
B. Kemembep that punctuality is the
mother of confidence. It is not enough
that the Merchant fulfils his engagements,
he must do what he undertakes precisely
at the time, as well as in the way he agreed
to. The mutual dependence of merchants
is so great, that their engagements like a
chain, which, according to the law of Phy
sics ,is never stranger than its weakest
link, are oftoner broken through the weak
ness of others than their oWn. But a
prompt fulfilment of engagements is not
only of the utmost importance,' but it ena
bles, others to meet their own engagements
promptly. It is also the best evidence
that the Merchant has his affairs well or
dered—-his means at command.,' bis forces
marshalled, and “ everything ready for ac
tion”—in short that he knoip bis own
strength. This it is which inspires confi
dence, as much perhaps as the meeting of
4. Attend to the, minute of the busi
ness, small things as well as. great. See
that the store is opened early, goods clean
ed up, twine and -mails picked pp,:and all
ready for action. A young man should
consider capital, if Jie have it, or as he
may acquire it, merely as tools with which
he is to work, not as a substitute for the
necessity of labor. It is often the case
that diligence in employments of less con
sequence is the most successful introduc
tion to greater enterprises. Those make
the best officers who" have served in the
ranks. We may say of Labor, as Cole
ridge said of Poetry, it is its own sweet
est reward. It is the best of Physic.
5. Let the young Merchant:! remember
that selfishness is the meanest of vices,
and it is the parent of a thousand more.
It not only interferes both with the means
and with the end of acquisition.--—not only
makes money more difficult to get, and not
worth having when it is got, bfit it is nar
rowing to the mind and to the heart. Sel
fishness keeps a shilling so close to the
eye that it cannot see a dollar beyond.”—
Never be narrow and contracted in your
views. Life abounds in instances of the
brilliant results of a generous policy.
Be frank. Say what you mean. Do what
you say. So your friends shall know and
take it for granted that you mean to do
what is just and right.
6. Accustom yourself to think vigor
ously. Mental capital, like pecuniary, to
be worth anything, must be well invested
—must bo Tightly adjudged and applied,
and to this end, careful, deep and intense
thought is necessary if great results are
looked for. :!■
7. Marry early. The man of business
should marry as soon as possible, alter
he is twenty-two or three years of age. A
woman of mind will conform toi ; the. neces
sities of the day of small beginnings; and
in choosing a wife, a Uriah should ilook to,

has any bearing upon success must be ia :

should ,bo continually ou the watch for in
