BCLWER says that poverty fa only an idea
in nine eases out of ten. Some men with
ten thousand dollars a yc t. suffer more
for want of means than others with three
hUndred. The reason is, the richer man
has artificial wants. Ilia income is ten
thou-and. and by habit he spends twelve
or fifteen thousand. and he suffers enough
from being dunned for unpaid debts to
kill a sensitive man. A mon who earns
a dollar a - day, and does not run in debt;
is the happiest of the two. Very few peo
ple who have never been rich will believe
this; but it is as true •at God's Word.
There are people, of course, who are weal
thy,_ and who enjoy their wealth ; but
there are thousands upon thousands, with
princely - income's, who never know a mo
ment's peace, because they live above
their means. There is really more happi

day asked Seward-his opinion of Greeley.
"HOrace Greeley," said iSaward. "is a grnt

power that if he lad a paiticleofcommon
sense we should have to hang him. But
he is 'a d•—:.d foo'; and therefore harm
less." Afti.r coming to New .York. the
journalist, dining with the editor- of tho
Tribune, inquired his - p.pinion of Seward.
"Seward has brains envgh." wa4 the re
