A Serial for the Young of, both 13exes.
Well, lay dear fellow; I - will begin
right where I left off, so that there
won't be any gap in your education;
for'it would lie a pity to ha've occa
skin' to use first- that very etiquette
which you would be thus deprived of:
I care not what may be the opinions
of other writers, I think it no slight
affair, no easy task, to be , a perfect
gentleman. Perfection consists in "a
notltiplicitly of accomplishments.—
Drinkdeep of the wells' of literature.
To be critically conversant with, Ned
Buntline and Midshipman' Easy,' to
'have the• whole vocabulary of slang
phrases on- yoUrtongne's end, to eat
and• smoke tobacco genteelly, to have
concise and at the frame time" corn-
prehensive views of matrimony, 'I say
to do and to be all this, even, is scarce-
to be accomplished inthis part of
the nineteenth centtrry. We know a
great deal, therefore flinch is required
of its Just take a retrospective glance
foie moment into the log cabins of
our grandsires. Bea,in what igno
rant simplicity they sat in darkness,
taking their :whisky " straight: and
manufacturing tobacc o - quids out of
the raw material. Now we salt in
the unfathomable mysteries a the
chemist, the scientific dram-mixer, to
take the measure of human endu
ranee, and prepare with India cockle
and arsenic aceordingly, and if our
good grandparents were to come
among ns, they would hardly know
whether they. were eating • tobacco,
dried herring, or lobelia.
It is well. I only mention it to
prove it, not to condemn. Men like
to die young' now-a-days: I don't
know but they are better prepared
than they used 'to be..'They endea
vor to hasten the happy day wheit
they can lie down to pleasant dreams
in thelarms of delirium tremens. It
will'be a happy death. I know of a
good many who are preparing to try
it on.
The, world is one vast news-room
and book-bindery. 'What excuse have
you for being ignorant ?
- And yet it requires some little taste
to select properly. If you are at
- school; you ought to be regular in
your habits. The forenoon might , to
be devoted to leavy breakfast ' and
light reading, such as "Red Knife,
the Revenger," or some such criet
ing, and - at the same time instructive
matter; -the fternoon to epistolary
Correspondence with' -your female
friends, and the •evening to French.
The reason why. I would recommend
French is not it is of any
more practical- value than Kickapoo;
but from this, that at the rate of pres
ent female education,• in two more
generations you can'tfind a young
dy. that can speak English. Ifni* you
ever thoug,lll of that r ixty dear friend?

For jhe liesty-abut the best
Thursday, Dee.% was the tenth au.
niversaiy of the execution of Old
John .Brown, and the • Philadelphia
Bulletin uteri to 'it in a very sensible
article, which we reproduce:
it is over ten years since old John
Brown of Ossawataraie, with a follow
ing of twenty-one men, whites and
blacks, made his mad attempt to ex
'cite insurrection in the United States
and creates go% errauent for the abo
lition of slavery. On the night of
October 16, 1859, be seized Harper's
Ferry. On the following night, a
force of one-hundred 'United States
marines, with two pievis of artillery,
commanded by CoL Robert E. Lee--
afterward General-in-chief of the
rebel army—compelled him to sur- 1
reader, all, bleeding and hacked with
bayonets. On the 81st of October,
1859, Brown was convicted of treat,
on, conspiracy, and murder' and on
the 2d of,December following he was
hanged at Charlestown, Va., amid a
pompous show of Virginia militia
called out by the redoubtable Gov.
Henry £ Wise. Thursday last was
the tenth anniversary of the death
of the brave, misguided old martyr : .
Nothing was gained by Virginia
or the South, or the cause 'of human
slavery by the hedging of John
Brown. It was one of the many
mistakes that the Southern politic;
ions made, in their efforts to resist.
the march of civilization. Brown
might. have been punished by impris
onment, or he might have been mag
nanammudy pardoned, and, in either
case, public opinion would have been
influenced favorably towards the
South. But Virginia and the whole .
South were thrown into such a panic
by 'the crazy undertaking of Brown
and his little party, that nothing
would satisfy them but his blood.
The petty affair, which could have
been put down by a squad of experi
enced policemen, was magnified and
even glorified by the consternation it
created, and by the tragic termina
tion that was given it by the melo
dramatic politicians of Virginia. The
little tragi-comedy of Harper's Ferry
and Charleston was made the prelude
or prologue of the tremendnowi_ po
litical and military. tragedy of the
Southern Rebellion.. The conor..m
name, Joha Brown, became exalted
as if it were the name of a saint as
well as of a hero. Through' four
long years of civil strife it was. a
watch-word and a. •
rallying cry for
the t ()idlers of the American illepub
lie. In public meetings, in parades,
in - bivouacs, and in advances toy
bloody battler, the idea tharflie soul
of John Brown was " marching on,' 1
while hia body was " mouldering in I
the ground," was a real source of
imipirszon, especially • with the com- i
men soldiers. The history of that
strange chant of the• Union troops
ought to be ; written,-' if there is any
one that knows it.: The quaint Old
negro melody, with its refrain; of.
"Glory Hallehijahrie familiar enough.
But bow, or when, or by whoui it
was applied to the- fate bf I ! Yohn
Brown, and made into a hymn - that
was the real battle hymn of the Re
public, in its years of terrible trial, is
not known, and probably never will
be known. Still, everyone feels that
in some providential though inde
scribable way, John: Brown, who
was'hung in - Virginia in 1859, was
an actor in all Ore scenes of civil
strife, between 1860 and 1865, and
that his soul was marching on and
guiding the nation to the triumph it
achieved over the rebellion and slav
ery. Robert E. Lee, who captured
him, and Henry A. Wise, who hung
him,-must have had visions of the old
man in many of the scenes through
Which they partied in the four years
of bloody rebellion. - -
As I typical, representative abol
itionist, john Brous of Ossawatamie
was very much in advance of most of
those Who avowed themselves aboli
tionists when such avowal was con
sidered either fanatical or =treason
able' He was willing to risk Iris' life
for the cause; and.when that life-was
dinuwided, lie gaveit up' With a mangy
ly dignity that was worthy a nartyr
in the holiest causer :lithe hadilie f el
and been liberatedi`thei abolition of
slavery would' probabV - not ' have
been accomplished as soon as it Was.
The first act of rebellion': 'reknit the
authorityof the Union took place a
little more than a year after his death.
The chain of .events from Harper's
Ferry and Charlestown to Appomat
tox is a well-connected' one, and all
future hilitorywill inelude the name
of john Brown in its accounts of the.
great revolution by. which African
slavery in America - Was abolished.

agent." That - it may become, after

- even to the health, is saying of it only
what• ma : lie said of opium, of strych
aline, and of arsenic, all of which are
[ employed for the very sank: purpose
that tobacco is, !,viz to produce ex
citement.' But the need is secondary,
artificial, and acquired. No man in
health carealto use tobacco because
lie [ needs it.. The habit begins in
puerile imitation. It is an apish
trick. Boys revolt against boyhood,
and think they are meu when old
enough to copy the faiths of .an im
perfect manhood. They are very apt
to, crawl into manhood through the
dirty door-of vice.
It may be said that, though there
is no natural craving for any particu
lar drug, like tobacco, yet in a highly
artificial state of society men crave
stimulants, and that tobacco, alcohol,
&c., if used with rigid moderation,
adapt themselves as artificial supplies
to an artificial want. .
That wen living raider the highly
exeitin , * n conditions of modern society
[need certain stimulants, we are not
disposed to deny„, But in Selecting
- One should avoid those [which are pe
culiarly liable to abuse, and employ
those which experience has shown to
be safe. • Tea , and coffee are useful
etimifiants. They - are not degenera
ting. Whatever, use tobacco and
"wine are . alleged to' have in repairing
nervous wastes, tea and coffee will
serve in like manner, without the
'temptations to excess which go with
these more violent drugs.
' '2. The habit of using tobacco leads
men to vulgarity., I do ;not by any
means say that every user of tobacco
is vulgar, or that every one who be
takes himself to it will, of necessity,
become vulgar. But, as a matter of
fact; users of tobacco grow indifferent
to the feelings of others, and habitu-
ally keep before the eyes of their
companions disgustful things; which
true refinement would hide, or sup
press. Even brute animals, moved by '
mere instinct, learn' to hide the excre
tions of the body. The much abused
pig prefers cleanliness. Give hiin
pure water a clean bed, and he will
keep * himself clean...
Brit, whatever rare and polite ex
beptions there maybe, it is undeniable ,
that the users of tobacco become in
different to others' feelings, and shock
the tastes of men with scarcely the
consciousness of., offending, The
chewer squirts his.saliva as if he were
a liquid artillery man. The smoker
carries in his hair, his raiment, and
in his breath the fetid odor of tobacco.
To some the fresh sineke of good tit.
bacco is not' disagreeable. But the
residual smell which lingers in the
pipe, on the clothes, or on the person,
is disgustful to every one. " If one
will use tobacco, he should, at least
thereafter carefully parp and purify
himself. But I have observed - that
' persons who in all other-things have
gentlemanly instincts, in the use of
tobacco seem to lose delicacy and
generosity. I,see a great degree of
selfishness, and of indifference to
others' comfort and 'feelings,. in the
use of this article. Ido not say that
tobacco brutifies men's feelings. But
I have noticed that users of tobacco.,
are, as a class, less careful of offend-' I
ing the tastes of others than are their
fellows Of the same rank in life who
do not. use it. ,

tutions, amost deleterious effect, even
when used. moderately. No one can
beforehand tell whether he w . be its

victim. That it acts upon Y as
an insidious nerve , poison, le. • to
dyspepsia, to headaches, to +.arious
derangements of the nervous system,
:seems beyond a doubt. Thousands
of persons, after long suffering * " have I
found themselves, restored to health 1
by simply discoutinninethe use of
tobacco. That, in such- cases, there
is an-Ufflnity - between drinking and
smoking, can hardly be doubted:—
