" Go ahead, never mind," is the motto of the American everywhere. With it he pla ces rails upon trembling prairies, where the foot of man dare not tread, and across which the locomotive lends wings to the cars, which would sink with the least detention : he breasts the current of the Mississippi with enormous tows ; he creates a rail road cutting through a forest nailing the rails to the trees as he fells them. Does he meet a lake on goes the road ; he takes piles and makes a bee line across it instead of going around its edges. A roll ing valley a mile or two wide separates two mountains; he builds a trestle work and the locomotive runs along its trembling top, its rattling heard at a great distance. Some times these wooden bridges tome down ; but what's the odds? Never mind, we'll make another—go ahead. Don't let us cry for spilt milk ; time is money. OUR ITOrS.E.S.--11 r e always look upon our houses as mere temporary lodgings. We are always hoping to get larger and finer ones, or are forced some 7. - ay or other to live where we donot choose, and in continual exportation of chanting our place of abode. _ln the pres ent state of society this is in a great measure unavoidable, but let us remember it is an evil, and that so far as it is avoidable, it becomes our duty to cheek the impulse. It is surely a subject for serious thought, whether it might not be better for many of us, if, in attaining a certain position in life, we determined, with God's permision, to choose a house in which we would live and die—a home not to be in creased by adding stone to stone and field to field but which being enough for all our wishes at one period, we should be resolved to be satisfied with forever. Consider this, and also, whether we ought not to be more in the habit of seeking honor for our descendants than our ancestors: thinking it better to be nobly remembered than nobly born; and striving to live that our son's sons for ages to come might still lead their children reveren- - tially to the doors out of which we have been carried to the grave, saying, "Look, this was his house ; this was his chamber." Editor and Proprietor. Go Ahead, Never Mind. 13 From an old and valued exchange we clip the following. The importance of the subject is so great, the fact is so real and the teachings so truthful, that we cleerfully give it a place in our columns, and commend it to the attention of our readers: "'We know of nothing that is more irn: portant as an element of character, thari unntenturr—and this in small Matteis as well as great—in the trifles of life r is well as in its more serious concerns: There is scarcely an individual who pays the least at tention to human nature and its develop; merit, who looks observingly upon the prog ress of society, who watches the chance and. changes that take place in the fortunes of his friends and neighbors, who will not be come impressed with his truth. The relia= ble man, whether young or old, is a moral jewel; while the unreliable—who never can be depended upon, who is erer at fault, and always behind time, soon becomes a com parative non-entity, and is not only disre; garded and distrusted, but is absolutely avoided. This policy, moreover, is essential to self-defence. 'We allude as well to relia bility of speeFin as reliability of conduct.—; Who, for example, cannot point out some mistaken, misguided, unfortunate or vicious member of society, - who rarely speaks the truth. Ile has contracted a habit of exag; Berating or falsifying, and thus, either in jest, or from a vicious propensity, he seems to delight in misleading, misrepresenting, and often calumniating. The result is, that he soon becomes known, and his statements, even when correct, are treated with indiffer ence or contempt. lie cannot be trusted, for he is not reliable. Ile is void of that in- . valuable principle—veracity. This in the . ordinary affairs of the day, and in the movements of the social circle. But, how, much more serious is such a defect, in the graver matters of 'business, and when trans actions of the utmost importance are involv ed It often happens that the little things of life indicate the reliable and the unreliaZ ble, and become, in fact, infallible tests of character. A short time since a young man made application to a merchant in a neigh boring city, for a situation that was then va- - cant, and lie referred to two individnals; his . teacher, when a boy, and his first employer immediately after he had finished his educa:. tion. Both agreed upon one fact, viz :—that in all things the youth was RELIJIBLE ; that he might be depended upon, both-in word and in deed—that this was his great merit; and with him, it was not only a habit, but a; principle and a matter of conscience. The merchant had upt before thought very deeply upon the particular quality of reliability, but he at once became impressed with its import ance, and the applicant was not only accept-i . ed, but he soon won for himself the esteem and the confidence of his employer. But we could cite numerous illustrations. Reliabili ty is not only a - virtue and a grace, but it is' one of the essentials of reputation and suc cess. A man may be gifted, accomplished; energetic and able in many points of view; and yet if not reliable, he is; comparatively speaking, of little or no value, and in me- - merits of emergency, he never will be sought for, or "depended upon. In fact, he . is noth ing more'than an unstable trifler, who sports* not only with his own character, but with, the time, the feelings and the fortunes of others." NO. 48. A little Swedish girl, who -had shared tho' heavenward impulse of a late revival of gion in her native land, was walking with her father on a starry night, absorbed in con templation of the skies,—on being questioned as to the occupation of her thoughts; she replied by expressing the following conception; which is certainly very domestic and still more poeti: cal, and most of all truthful, " I -Was think ing," she said, " If the wrong side of heaven is so glorious what vast the other side be."

For 72 years I have been an, invalid, unable to stir, except when moved by a lever ; but a year ago last Wednesday; I heard of your Indian Syrup.

S.--A little of your Filigostotum Salve applied to a wooden leg, reduced a corn= pound fracture in twelve minutes; and covering the limb with a fresh cuticle of white gum pine bark. BEAUTIFUL SENTIME sr.—Shortly before the' departure of the lamented Heber for India; he preached a sermon which contained thi6 beautiful illustration: " Life bears us on like the stream of ii mighty river. Our boat at first glides down the narrow channel—through the playful murmuring of the little brook and the wind: ing of its grassy borders. The trees shed their blossoms over our young heads, the flow: ers on the brink seem to offer themselves to our young hands ; we are happy in hope, and we grasp eagerly at the beauties around us—but the stream hurries on, and still our hands are empty. Our course in youth and manhood is along a wilder and deeper flood, amid ob; j eets more striking and magnificent. We are' animated at the moving pictures of enjoyment and industry passinc , us ; we are excited by . short-lived disappointments. The stream bears' us on, and our joys and sorrows are alike' left behind us. We may be shipwreekedove can: not be delayed ; whether rough or smooth; the river hastens to its home, till the roar of the ocean is in our ears, and the floods are lifted up around us, and we take onr leave of earth and. its inhabitants, and to our further voyage there is no witness save the infinite and the eternal." Ora nomEs.—Gen ius bath its triumph, fame its glories, wealth its splendor, success its bright rewards, but the heart only bath its home. Home only! IVhat more needeth the heart? What more can it gain? A true home is more than the world—more than hon or, and pride, and fortune—more than all earth can give—the light, the noonday sun may not yield, and yet the tiny flames of pure beam of love enkindleth, and sympathy makes to burn forever. Ilomel how more beautiful thou art! how like an untaught religion! a golden link be tween the soul and heaven! when the pres ence of a pure heart makes thee radiant, and the music of its affection floats like the cha• rals of unseen chernbims around thy trap. quil hearth. In China, if a young man is not mar ried by the time he is twenty, he is drummed out of town. No place for bachelors•among the firm films, The Wrong Side of Heaven.
