Mr. Phillips came from the patrician
class of Massachusetts—that is to say from
the narrowest and most exclusive aris
tocracy, next to the Smith Carolina plant
ers, that ever offended high heaven by their
mimicries of English social heathenism in
America. His father was the first mayor
of Boston, a man of wealth and assu re
social position, and for thirteen or fourteen
successive years the president of the Senate
His family came over in the "Arabella,"
the ship • that lollowed the "Mayflower."
The father of Wendell* Phillips was a man
of courtly and populaiManners. He was
chosen mayor of Boston, through a union
of all the parties, by 2,500 out of the 2,800
These was nothing in the early life, any
more than in tha early . surroundings of
Wendell Phillips that : gave promise of his
coining career. At college he was a daily
fencer and boxer; and acquired some skill
in bcith of these departments of the "manly
art." was never in the opposition,
never got into any trouble on account of
his dissent • from the • opinimis of others,
and was so far from inclining to radicalism
ither politics. or social life, that he was
president of an "exclusive". society, known
as the "Gentlemen's Club." He had so
little interest in reform that he succeeded
in defeating—or, the infamy," as he
phrases it, of having defeated the fiist pro
position to establish a temperance society

that he had joined the anti-slavery move.
went. Probably im one could have been
suggested to thewwhom they would have
looked on as less likely to become a leader
of the Rafflelds. He never read speeches ;
although next to ipassion for mechanics,
the debating club vas always his hobby.
To his love of fendng and boxing succeed
ed a fancy for limses ; which was only
nipped in the hub by his sudden and un
expected absorption in the anti-slavery
movement. The Ihiglish say: "When the
nursery door opengthe stable door closes ;"
but the same etlect was produced in the
life of our great • orator by the sight of
Garrison with the halter around his body.
Even to this day, however, Mr. Phillips has
never killed this eaily passion, although he
has completely mastered it: Though a
thorough hater of races, one of his favorite
journals yet is Wilkes's Spirit of the Times.
Rarey was quite an idolator of Philips;
and the orator regarded the horse-tamer
"as much of a philosopher as is going in
Yet young Philips was not an idle stu
dent. He had not the terrible power of
toiling which distinguished Sumner, his
college-mate, then and still; but he was
a rapid learner, and stood high in his class.
His favorite study was history, including a
lively interest in genealogy and even in
heraldly. "But," says Mr. Phillips, one
day, in speaking of his college-life, "If I
had followed my own bent, I should have
given my time to mechanics or chemistry ;
and my mother used to Saylhat when I
became a lawyer, a good carpenter was
spoiled." One of his favorite volumes
day is Smiles's .11!s:,ory of laventors.
We remember his own accoun:: of his
introduction to iadicalism." We noted the
words at :he time, and kept :,hem for fu
ture use. "The first dine," he remarked,

WITAT IT COSTS TO ISEEP A HOTEL.
The New York correspondent of the Cin
cinnati Gazette writes :
"Speaking of hotels, do you know how
extensively the accounts of a first-class es
tablishnient foot up in the course of a
year ? The bills of a first-class hotel for
supplies are enough to support a good many
small families, especially if they practice
economy, and don't keep dogs and horses
and Saratoga trunks. For example, I will
give you some items from the balance sheet
of the Astor House, the oldest first-class
hotel in the city. The Astor House pays
seventy-five thousand dollars a year for
groceries, including $9,000 for flour and
$22,000 for butter. [Who would suppose
that its butter would cost nearly three times
as much as its flour ? but so they tell me.]
The marketing about slso,ooo—they
pay one man from forty-iive to sixty thou
sand dollars for beef alone, and the balance
of the $150,000 goes for mutton, veal, pork,
poultry, vegetables, fish, &c. The milk and
cream for. the Astor House cost $14,000,
about two-thirds of it being for milk and
one-third for cream. Eggs cost $12,000,
the average use being 100 dozen per day,
or 35,000 annually. The gas bill is $14,000
and the coal bill pretty much the same ;
friction matches cost $1.50 per day, or about
$5OO a year ; a good many of these are
not used in the house, but find their way
into the pockets of the patrons. Who
would think of paying for wooden tooth
picks when any body can whittle one with
little trouble ? A million a year are used
in the Astor house, at an expense of some
thing less than a $lOO. Brown tissue
paper, cut to about . the size of common
tissue paper, costs about $1,200 and some
times a great deal more, according to the
patronage the house has received. The
bill for liquors for the bar-room is a heavy
one, but, fortunately for the proprietors,
the amount received from patrons is a great
deal more. With all these figures staring
him in the face a mau who can keep a
hotel is entitled to all the praise of his fel
low citizens, and can be set down in the
list of philanthropists, and practical bene
factors of his race.

Towards night, as very hard fighting

best horseman in the army, and his skill
did him good service. Before running the
hot gauntlet, he had adopted the posture
of Camanche Indians in similar peril,
lying against the side of his horse, with one
foot thrown over the saddle, and his hand
catched in the mane. Being•on the oppo

GROWTH OF GREAT 31EN.—Great minds
mature slowly. It is not unusual to find
that the leading men of our day, were very
unpromising 'boys. Daniel Webster, the
acknowledged statesmen of America, was
notoriously dull when a boy, a poor scho
lar in college, and gi actuated without honor.
Henry Ward Beecher, was a fourth-rate
scholar when young, and completed his
studies without distinction, except on the
play-ground. 'Robert Rantoul stood near
the foot of his class in college. Sir Walter
.Scott was called a dullard when a boy.
Patrick Henry, whose oratory stirred the
hearts of th 6 F. F. V's, was too stupid a
boy to keep on the shady side of the tree
under which he would lie, like an unthink
ing brute, the live4ong day. How. often
are we startled to find that the dolt whom
we pitied, if we did not deride, in our
school days, is now the astute lawyer, the
skilled physician, the profound writer, or
the princely merchant ; leaving us, once his
It was old Izaak Walton who said,
"Every misery that I miss is a new mer
cy;" a saying worthy of the profoundest
philosopher. It is only too true that mis
fortunes come to us on wings, but retire
with a limping pace; and yet one-half the
world are ready to meet calamities half
way, and indirectly to welcome them.
There is'scarcely an ,evil in life that we
cannot double by pondering upon it; a
scratch will thus become a serious wound
and a slight illness even be made to end
in death, by the brooding apprehension of
the sick; while, on the other hand, a mind
accustomed to look on the bright side of
all things, will repel the mildew arid damp
ness of care by its genial sunshine. A
cheerful heart paints the world as it sees it,.
like a sunny landscape ; the morbid 'mind
depicts it like a sterile wilderness.
