His Serene Highness determined up=
on acceptin the Boston invitashen.—
His °oriel rece pshen in North Karli•l
nygive him a sort uv. appetite for
popler applause, and •he determinea
upon tryin it in the North agin. At
the Cabinet meetin, held to discuss
the question, Seward expressed a de
sire to go. elles fellered Seward,
but Randall, who, Bence the decease
of Sir Isik Newton, is considered the,
'strongest man connected with the
Administrashen, -and. therefore as
sooms diktatorial airs,
" But," sed Johnson, in reply `to
Randall's opposition, "I feel - ez tho
I must make one more effort to save
our errin Southern brethren."
- .
" Mr. President," retortid Randall,
" I recently went to raise a corner
stun to the mem'ry nv J. Johnson,
yoor-lamentid father, who deceast in
1812. onto that corner-stun *az en
graved these words : -
" Jacob Johnson ;i died froM Me of

effort to save his friends from drown

" Now of yoo keep on yoor present
loonatic course I shel 4)e compelled
to withdraw from yoor Rapport, and,
after a time, from my .quiet home in
Wisconsin, where an appreciative
constiooency will permit me to for
ever stay, I will be called upon to
write an epitaff for your politikle

" l'oszntP-The friends wuzn't worth
the savin ' but they lived.
"Nora BENE —The man who saved
em wuznt quite ez good ez the friends;
but he died.
" But upon sekond thot I've no ob

no damage ef the reporters is prop

such speeches ez we'determine upon
before hand. You go thro Delawar,

wich `cussidness grafted onto therll

There'll be a immense crowd present

Not unlike our o western .prai

vast illumitable plain, . its nionetoi

undulating like . An ocean whose
waves' hive suddenly been arrested.
For thousands land thousands of
miles these gentle, undulations suc

ervading the landecape, that at last,
though the travelet , knoWs -that his
horses are galloping, on _ aid he sees
the wheels of his car tnni rouiad, yet
he seems fastened to the 'ltame spot,
unable to make any prov . :is; Not
even a bush is to be seen , e level
ground, not a rivulet is to be heard,
but here and there in the ho'low are
tall green reeds and scattered will-
Owe, where sullen rivers Bow slow

far do these desolate tracts extend
that ithas been declared that a calf

China might eat its way along till it

the steppe posesses a peculiar charm
of its own. - The greed is then coin,

"you cannot see the 'grass' f r *m

exhilarating, the sky is cle r .and
blueoind the grass rings wi h the

districts the steppe retains for a

Shade is utterly unknown ; thel heart
is everywhere the same. At morn
and ev_e the sun rises and sets like a
globe of fire, whilein the noontide it
wears a hazy appearance, due to the
dust which prevades the atmosphere
like smoke. The , herds
. grow• lean
and haggard, and the inhabitanti
appear wrinkled and melancholy and
darkened •by the .constant dust to i an
almost African hue. in the autumn
the heat lessens, the drat-colored sky

. DEi.—lt is - the fundamental mistake
of most boys to - suppose that they
can, get rich faster on money earned
by others than that earned -respec
tively by themselves. If every youth
of 18 to 25 years today were offered
$10 ; 000 for ten years at Seven per
cent. interest.' two-thirds of_ -them
would eagerly accept it ; when the
probable consequence is that three
fourths• of • them would die bankrupts
arid paupers. Boys do -not need mo
ney half. so much aa they need to
knOw how to earn and save it. iThe
boy, who, at the close of his firstyear
of independence,. has earned and
saved one. hundred, dollars, and in
vested or loaned it where it will pay
him six or seven per cent. will cer
tainly'become rich- if he lives ; while
he who 'closes his -first ,year of re
sponsibility in debt, will probably
live and die in debt. There is no
greater mistake by our American
youth than ,that of paying interest
rather, than receive. Interest di
yours us while we sleep ; it absorbs
our profits and aggravates our loss
es. Let wyoung man at twenty-five
have $l,OOO loaned on bond and,
mortgage, or .invested is public , se
curities, and he will rarely want
money thereafter
. ; in fact, that $lOOO
invested at seven per cent., will of
itself make him rich before he ie six
ty. There is no rule more important
or wholegothe for our boys than that
which teaches them to go through
life receiving, interest rather than
paying it. Of the torments which
-afflict this mortal sphere, the first
rank is held by Critrie, the second by
