Beauty of Ambition.
It seeks the chambsr Dribs gifted boy, ,
And lifts his humble window and comes in;
Telt narrow walls rxpand and open away
Into a knightly palace, and this roof
Lifts to the sky, and unseen fingers work
The coiling with rich his zonry, and writs
His name in burning letters over all."
Nature is an admirer of excellence,
strength and sublimity. Her moun
tains tower lofty, over the , puny ; un
assuming bills; the mountain torrent,
when it has amassed its power, forces
its way through the natural impedi
ment in its path—leaps with concen•
trated strength down the yawning
abyss, again swelling with giant might
it rises once the surface, and
glides swiftly to the great ocean, its
destined goal, leaving far behind the
feeble rivulet,'that creeps along like
some wounded, spiritless reptile, which
is interrupted with impunity by every
little pebble, stick and stone that tries
to defend its resting place, until at last
it drops noiselessly and unknowingly
into the absorbing path of the torrent.
The blushing rose of the valley, in
beauty, grace and fragrance outrivals
its sweet sisters ; the industrious tribe
of bees, with all the etiquette of social
manners and learning, and with the
docility. of inferiors, .how their tiny
heads in humble submission, until oth
er rivals have evinced their supremor
eXeellence. Thus it seems that all at . i •
mated creation is governed by superi
or minds; and-superiority can only be
attained - by patient and concentrated
toil, stim listed by some inward feeling
or outward object. Nature wisely
created her pillars of strength for the

the brilliant star of progress, on thy
bosom the lovely form of science is
nourished, thy hands bear aloft the
glorious instruments of art. 0! what.
would the earth do without thee, thou,
bright shadow of futurity. The past,
with its thrilling memories, its heroic
examples, its beautiful pageantry. its

The Brakemen.
A very humble doss of railroad men
-a, class that get poorer pay in pro
portion to the work they do and the
dangers they run than any other upon
the road are the brakemen. `!'hough per
haps loss responsibility rests upon them
'they are placed in the most dangerous
position on the train; they aro expect
ed to be at their post at all times, and
to flinch from no contingency that may
arise. Tho managers of the railroad
expect and demand the brakemen to
be ne prompt in answering the signals
of the engineer as the throttle:valve is
obedient to hie touch.
Reader, were you lever on a train of
cars moving with the wings of the Wind,
skimming over the ground as rapidly
as a bird flies, •darting' by tree and
house, through cuttings and over em
bankments And did you over feel a
sudden jar that almost jerked you
,from your seat? .At the same time,
did you hear the sharp, sudden blast
of the whistle, ringing out asif the
hand that pulled it was nerved by; the
presence of danger, braced by. a4erri ,
blo anxiety to avoid destruction? It
frightened you, did it not?' But : did
you notiee the brakertion then ; Lle
rushed madly out of the ';ears, ! ati if he
thought the train was going to destrue
tion surely, and wished, before the
crash carne,•to be oat of it. No, that
was not his object.. Re caught hold
of the brakes, and with all ,the force
and energy ho was capable of exerting,
applied thorn 'to the swift revolving
wheels, and when you felt the gradual
reduction of* brakes you began to
fool easier.' 'But what , thought the
brakeman all the time'? ,Did bethink
that, if the danger ahead was 'any ono
of -a-thousand which might happen?
if another train was coming toward
them, and they should strike it? if a
disabled engine was on the track, and
a fool, to whord . the task was entrusted,
bad neglected to give your train the
signal ? if the driving rain had raised
sonic little stream, or if a spark of fire
had lodged in a bridge, and the bridge
was gone? if some loosened rock bad
rolled down upon the track; 'or if the
track had slid ; or, if .some wretch,
wearing a human form over a hellish
%Id, had lifted a rail, plaCed a tie on
the track, to hurl engine and car 'there
from ? if' any of .these things were
ahead, and the speed of your train be
too great- to atop, and go plunging into
it, did be realize that he was the first
man to he caught; that those two ears
between which ho stood, ;straining
every nerve to do his share to avert
the catastrophe, would come together
and crush him,. as he would crush
worm beneath his tread?. If he did,
ho was doing his duty in that danger
ous place, risking his life at a' pretty
cheap rate— , -a dollar a day—wasn't ho?

was going over the road "extra," that:
is, I was not running the engine; but
riding in the, car.. I hoard a sharp
whistle, but thought it was not of much
consequence, fur I knew the engineer's
long avowed intention to never call the
brakemen to their posts when the dan
ger could be avoided ; ho said he would
give them a little chance, not call them
when they had none. The brakemen
all sprang to their posts; the 'One in

shock that shook everythingloose•and

pieces of the roof all into a mass in the

together, and I was pitched into the

in my lap—we did not try to, move

hours I sat and talked to those men,

do? What had I better follow ? What
business shall I pursue, and where
shall I locate f Most of mankind are
dissatisfied with their own business,
and with the course , they have pur
sued, and think they would have dono
better at something else; and therefore
will seldoln Tecomruend the young to
follow the same business they have..
Or, it may be, they experienced the
difficulties, and see the hardships and
obstacles to be overcome in the track
they have pursued, and are unable to •
see them in a course of life which they
have never, followed or known. ,
It is quite certain that there are dif
fioulties in every business and in every
walk of life which the young and inex*.
penance can not aee, and arc never
known until, experienced. Some have
far greater difficulties in the same class
of business than others. Sonic have a
peculiar adaptedness to their,business,
and their success is natural; while
others, by reason of their , health, con
stitution, and training; are•not at all
adapted to their 'business'-and ,the
sooner that'idass chaoge.their busioess
the better, Ibt theta. Some have nut
tbo 'faculty nor energy to anceeed at
any , thing; and are usually contented
that they don't—because a man, With
out energy is usually contented as be
is. But a large class of young. men are
men of energy and ability; casting
about, and always on the alert, anx
ious to know what, will torn up for
them. It is this class of young men to
whom advice is the most acceptable
and valuable.. '
It is an erroneous idea that some
kinds of business are very easy, while
others are very laborious. It is goner.
nlly.thdught-that if,a man can only be
a professional man of some kind-L
doctor; lawyer, or minister—his labor
will be light, and his life, a happy ono.
Young people often say to themselves:
"Oh, if I could only'be a merchant or
a business man, how soon would I get
rich." They little know the mental
care, anxiety, and bodily, labor they
have to endure. Theyoung men who
flatters himself with an essay life as a
professional man, Ualess,he his peeitli
'ar fitting qualifications, or an influence
by reason of birth and position in life,
at this day, will find himself badly de,
ceived when lie cornea to contend with
the world, and 'earn his. livelihood.
The young man , who thinks that
studying his profession and receiving
his diploma aro all that is required' to
nr.ake him a lawyer, doctor, or minis
ter, .and secure ;for hint a living prac
tice, is sadly deceived. The young
man who exrocts to reap the golden
fruits of his literary acquirements, as
soon as he 'passes through college is
sadly deceived.
The world commences to mode with
a man when he enters the active are•
na. and hustle' of business life. VI
then the'youth takes no note of time.
It comes and goes without • a perpliai
ty, or, a thought. But when thrown
into the great. maelstrom of human
excitement caused by business; when
every hoar and minute is counted, aud
each brings duties and anxieties,; when
one care'passes but to make: place for
another; when obstacles tower before
you like mountains, and' ditilculties
sweep over you like waves, - , then can a
man realize what it igt ih'e for•bim
self. . - ,

if they . ., could 'but chdose a city Big,
