produced—which dxdludo'thcm from general no*

: Jonatlian Wild had every qualification neces
sary to form a great man, As his most pow
orful and predominant passion Was l ambition,
hp jiaturo had, with consummate, propriety,
adapted all his faculties to the attaining those
glorious ends to' which this passion directed
him. He was extremely ingenious in invent
ing'designs, artfel in contriving the means to
accomplish liis, pufpbtos,'itnd resolute in exe
cuting th'eto; for asthe moSt'eXqulsite cunning
and post nndannted bpldiiess*qualifled him for
any undertaking, so was/lid'not restrained by
any of those weaknesses which , disappoint the
views qf mean and vulgar souls, undivided are
comprehended in one general term of honesty,
which. Is,a corruption of X/moi/y, a word' de
rived from what the Greeks , call an nss„ He
was , entirely ftee from those low vices of
modesty and good-natuye, which, as he said,
implied , u total negation of, humpn greatness,
and’ were the only qualities which absolutely
rendered a man. incapable-of making a consi
derable figure in the’.wdrld. ’ His lust,was infe
rior only'to' his ambition;.,but as for what
simple people call love; bo knew not what it
was. His avarice was imihense/but it was of
tho rapacious not of the tenacious kind; his
rapaciousness was indeed so violent, that no
thing ever contented him but the whole:' for,*
however considerable tho share was which his
coadjutors allowed him pf a booty, he was rest
less in' inventing means to iiiake liimsclf master
of fee smallest pittance reserved by them. He
said laws were made for the use.of 'prigs only,
and to secure their property; they were never,
therefore, more perverted, than when their
edge was turned against these; bat that this
generally happened through their want of suf
ficient dexterity. The character which he
most valued himself upon; and which ho prin
cipally honored in others, was hypocrisy. His
opiniomvas/tbat no one couia carry priggism
■ very/far Without if; for which refison; he said;
; there'was little greqtqess to bo,expected in a
man who ackn'owlpdged.his vices, but. always
much to bo hoped from him who professed
great virtues: wherefore,, though, he would
always shun' the person , whom he "discovered
guilty of'a good action; yet,he* was never de
terred by a good character, which was more
! commonly the effect of profession than of
aqtion; foi which reaaqn, ho himself was,always
very liberal,Of honest prpfe'ssionß; and tad as
much' virtllo and goodness'in his month as a
. saint; never-in the least scrupling to swear by
hia honor; even to those who know Mm the
'best; nay, though he held,.good-nature and
(modesty in the highest contempt, he conatant
ly practised tho effeefation of both, and 'recom
mended this to others, whoso welfare, oh his
;own account, he wished well,to. He*laid down
i several maxims as the certain method of attain
ing greatness; to which in his o,wn'pursuit of
jit, he constantly adhered. ‘As4- !
I 1. Hover to'do more mischief-to: another
(than was necessary to'thb affecting his purpose;
■for th'aVmiBchief whs tod precious athing to bo
;tlirown away. • . ,
! 2. To know mo distinction of men from affec
tion; but to,safcfiflce all with equal readiness
Ito his iritefest., '
1 3. Never to communicate more of an affair
.tlum w«m necessary to tho person who. was* to
execute it."■
4. Not to trust him who has deceived you,
nor who knows he hath,been deceived by you.
6. To forgive no enemy; but to bo cautious,
and often dilatory, in revenge. *
6. To'shun poverty and distress, ahd to ally
ihimself as close as possible to power and
riches.', . ,
! 7. To maintain a constant gravity in his
IcouUtchancd and behaviour, ahd to affect wis
dom on all occasions.
i 8, To foment eternal jealousies in his gang
one of Another.
) 9. Never to reward any. ono equal to his
merit; but always to insinuate that the re
gard was above. It. "
! ,10. That all men were knaves or fools, and
niich the greater number a composition of
>otb. . ■
11; That a'good name, like money, must be
lariedwith, or at least greatly risked; in order
d bring tho owner any advantage.
1.2, Tbo virtues, like jMecfdus 'stones, were
iasily counterfeited;'but the counterfeits in
lothcaaes.adorned, the equally, and
hat’very few had knowledge or discernment

! He had many more of the samo kind, all
(jqiially gqod with.these, and which were after

excellent and celebrated rules were In that of
King, Charles I.; for *he’ never promulgated
them in his lifetime; not having them constant
ly in his mouth, as some gravo persons have
the rules of virtue and 'morality, without pay
ing the least regard to them in their actions;
Whereas our hero, by a constant and steady
adherenoe to bis ruloß in , ponforming every
thing ho did to them, acquired at length a
settled habit of walking by them, till at last
l)o was in no dangor of inadvertently going
out pf the, way,; and by these means he arrived
*»t that degree of greatness which few have
equalled; nohe, we may say,’ have' exceeded:
fpr, thpugh it must,bq allowed that there have
been some few, heroes ,who have done greater
mischiefs to mankind, such as those who have
hotfayed the liberty of,their country td'.others,
or who have undermined and overpowered it
themselves; or conquerors,' who have impover
ished, pillaged, sacked, burnt, and destroyed
the countries and, cities of their fellow crea

) A strong temptation to do brnvoty ill
yet,when we see our, hero; without the least
assistance or pretence, setting himself at the
head of a gang which, he, had hot any, shadow
of right to govern;', if, we view him maintain
ing absolute power and exercising tyranny oyer
at lawless,crew, contrary to all law but that ol'
his own will;’ if we consider him setting up an
open trade publicly, in defiance not only of
the laws of, his couhtry. but of tho common*
sense of his countrymen; if we’seehim first
contriving the' robbery of others, and again
the defrauding tlie,very ropbers ,of, that ; booty
whichtboy had ventured their hecks to acquire,
and which, without .any hazard, they might
have retained; here surely ho must appear
admirable, and wo may challenge not only the
truth of history, but almost the latitude qffle
tioh, to equal Ids'glory. ; '
. !Nor had he any of those Haws iu his charac
ter which, though they have been commended
by weak writers, have by the judicious readers
been censured and despised. Such was the
clemency of Alexander and Caisar, which na
ture had so grossly erred in giving them, as a
piintcr would who should dress a peasant in
rdbes of state, or give (bp nose or [ any other
feature of a Yenus to a satyr. What had the
destroyers of mankind, that glorious pair, one
!of whom come into the world to usurp tlie
dominion and abolish tho constitution of his,
own country; the other to conquer, enslave,'
atld rule over tho world, at least as much as'
was well known to him, and the shortness of
bis life would give him leave to visit; what
juid, I say, such as theso to do with clemency ?
Polygamy.—From time 'to time evidence
comes to us that polygamy is regarded as on 1 abuse
by the women who are its victims. One of the pub
lished sermons of Gov. Young rbt'Uke? the dissatis
faction of his wlvos, and offors toi-m the alternate
of; submission or banishment from Utah. The
system is one that must be unpopular from the ine
quality and hardship of its operation. The pro*
, portion of .the sexes »b so nearly equal; that if ono
mdn has two wives another must g 6 without aiiy.
Ti\en, where there arognore wives than ono in a
family, one will commonly bo the favorite, and tho
others neglected drodgoß—unwilling workers for an
estrangoiT husband. Only “ tho labor that de
iighteth' physios pain.” The work that women
do for an unfaithful lord,-is the oonstrained labor
of a slave. The disaffeijtlon now suppressed by
fear, will find speddy expression when it isoortain
of the relief that it ihVokes, and is no longer in
danger of incurring punishment for complaining of
'oppression. In this way, tho notion of the goneral
government in' dispatohing troops lo Utah may be
"xbeoted to undermine polyganiy; and to set in
motion onuses that ,will ultimately offeot ita ex
tinction. Thus the protection given to the people
ifutah, will enable them;te, a corruption
■of'morals which had its ,origin In ecclesiastical
fraud, ihtrigueand oppression. The exercise of
popular, sovereignty wfll - extirpate an abuse of

A forthconlingTo'oal ’work, which promises
to:bo of considerable interest, (and part of
which we have perused,) is “ Philadelphia and
its Manufactures in 1867.” Its purpose will be
to exhibit the development, variety, and statis
tics of tho manufacturing establishments of
the city, with sketches of remarkable manu
factories, and a list of all articles now made
here. The ruling idea is to show, (competent
persons reporting upon, and describing the
leading branchos of our manufactures, and
pointing out articles which may advantageously
ho produced here,) how well qualified, particu
larly by locality, Philadelphia is for becoming
a great manufacturing centre—she already
being a great manufacturing city. JYo strongly

of it which is bofore us. Its plan and purpose
are gobd; and odr manufacturers should take
an interest in a hook intended largely to benefit
them. It will be edited by Mr. Edwin T.

Keep A Good Cow, or None.—Amos Kinsley,
of Jamestown, Chautauquo county, N. Y.,< gives
the following account of tho product of a good but
ter-making cow for ono month, between April 25
and May 25, 1857. He says :
“ Said cow is of our common breed; medlumsixe:
seven years old; was wintered qn corn fodder, the
product of one and a half acres, together with one
quart of corn meal night and morning, wot with
the slops of tho. house, .when I had/apy, and.when
not, with water, being stabled constantly except
when she could bq ns comfortable out doors. The
buttor was manufactured by a youug woman who
lived with us, (my wife being sick nt the time,)
who professed no particular skill in butter-making;
yet the result was forty-eight pounds and ton
ouuoea of butter of first quality. And now permit
mo to remark that ismy opinion that if dairymen in
goheral would keep ono-half as many cows as they
now keep, and select their best and keep them in
primoordur and fatten tho rest, they wculdroalixe a
third if not double tho profit they do from the wholo
number. Farmers ofton milk whatever falls into
their hands that looks like a cow, not realising per
haps, that it costs just as much .to, keep on© that
makes half a pound of buttor a day, as it does to
keep ono that will give tv pound and & half a day.
My cow does not givo what would bo called o largo
mess of milk—averaging only about Beven pounds
to tho milking in tho host of the season; yet she
averages over ono and a half pounds of bilttor n
day. In my opinion, a cow that will not average
a pound a day for hall tho year should be discarded
from the hora dovoted to buttcr-mnking.
The midge is, we havo reason to fear, destroying
tho wheat crop of this region. We‘bear of its
ravages in almost every direction. In Borne locali

overlive to ton busholsisoxpeotcd. Froma bunch
of wheat heads, now on our table, wp havo, exam
ined sovcral kornals, and found on the berry and
insido of the husk of eaoh, from ton to fifteen larveo
deposited by tho midge—a more numerous product
than we ever beforo observed. From this evidence,
and tho testimony of creditable farmers, we are
constrained to believe that, in this seotion at least,
the wheat crop of 1857 will prove a failure.— Rural
New Yorker,
The Harvest at the West. —The Cleve
land (0.) Plaindealer of the llth'hltimo, says:—
Wheat cutting Is now going on throughout the con
tra! line of tho States, including Southern Ohio,
Indiana and Illinois, it having been completed in
all the Southern States, and up as far North ns
Maryland and Virginia! So far as gathered, tho
crop exceeds in breadth and quality that of any
former year. Very littlo damage seems doing by
the weevil, and no rust ns yet has hppeared. Ohio
will raise the greatest crop of grass, grain and fruit
this year sho has over ,produced. Tho farmers are
now mowing in of tho State—the fro
quent rains having pdshed forward the griws to a
very rank growth - .Corn is backward, say all our

Attempt to Burn tin* Western Penitentiary.
On Thursday morning, about ono o’clock, Mrs.
Bcckhun, wife of Major Beekhan, tho Warden'
of tho Western Penitentiary, was aroused from'
sleep by a crackling noise in g room’adjoining
tbojr cnambor, upon the first poor. On rising,
Major Bockhan saw smoko issuing from the room,
and upon entering itdiscovoredaquantity of hay
burning upon tho floor. The prompt application of
a bucket of water extinguished tho fire. It was
found that the incendiary had gained access to tho
yard by ollmbing the Weebster street gate, and had
reaohed tho window by placing a piece of timber be
tween the iron bars, and ascending it. Tho sash be
ing open, the hay was thrown in and lighted. - Foot
prints were discovorod near the gate, m somo day
or plaster, used in repairing the building. The
foot was so small as to lead to the conclusion that
tho attompt'to burn the institution was made by a
iboy, most probably under of some
’ pbrson outsfdo. No damage was\lone to the build
ing, although tho fire had communicated to tho
washboard, and its timoly discovery was most fgr
tundto. Prior to the-late firoj Major Beckham
