FRANKLIN AND GOV, BITRNET,
Franklin had just a•eturned from assisting
poor Collins to bed, when the captain of the
vessel which had brought him to, New York,
rtepped up and in.a very respectful manner
put a note into his hand. Franklin, opened.
its not without considerable agitation, and
read as follows :
"G. Burnet's compliments await young Mr.
Franklin, and' should be glad of lidlf an
hours chat with him. 7
"G. Burnet," said Ben.,
"Why, 't is the Governor," replied the cap
tain smiling: 4 .1 }taro just been to'seeArim,
with' some letters L - hronght- , for him front
Boston. And when I told ldin What *a world
of books you have, he expressed curiosity to
dee you, and begged I would return with you
to his palace."
Ben instantly set off with the captain, but
not without a sigh as he cast a look at the
door of poor Collins' bed-room, to think what
an honor that wretched 'Young man had lost
for the sake of . two or three drinks of filthy
The Governor's looks at the approael of
Ben, plainly showed a disappointment. He
had, it seems, expected, considerable enter
tainment from Ben's conversation. But his
fresh and ruddy contenande showed him so
mush younger than he had expected, that he
--gave-up-all- his-promisettrentertainment- as-a
lost hope. He received Ben however with
great politeness, and took him into an adjoin
ing rown'lvhich was his library, consisting
of a large and well chosen collection.
Seeing the pleasure which sparkled in
Ben's eyes, as he surveyed so many elegant
authors, and th,ought of the - rich stores of
knowledge which they contained, the gover
nor with a smile of complacency, as on a
yining pupil of science, said to him:—
. "We 11,16. Frankliii, I am told by the cap

"A trunk full, sir!" replied the governor,

"I can boast," said I3en, "of having read

should be sorry if I could not get -atrunk full

• At this, the governor; regaMing him with
a lobk of surprise, said—
" You must then, though so young, be a
scholar; perhaps a teacher •of the langua

"What, not Latin nor Greek
"No, sir, not a word of either.''.'•+
"Why, don't you think them necessary ?"
"1 . don't set myself up as n- judge—but

Here 'the governor pauSed a . moment,
though without' a little red on his cheeks,
•.. for hating put Ben - and' chapter X. of.'Nehe
'` miah eloso together; : However' catching
a new idea, 116 took another start. • "
"Nell but my 'dearsir, you-certAinly differ
from the learned r.world,;which is, you
, in ftivor orthe languages.". •
"I would not wish wantonly•to differ froM
the learned world," • said Ben, "especially,
when they mantain opinions that seem to
me founded in truth. But when this is not
the case, to differ from them I have ever
_thought it my duty; and especially. since I

"you studied Locke?" •

"You amaze me, sir..' iron study Locke on

. "Yes, sir, I did."
"Nell, and pray at what college did you

Collego'brold England,. whore I got my ed
ucation, they never allowed the senior class
to look at_ Locke till eighteen.."
"I\ll,c', rir, it ,was my )iiisfortune never to
be at a college, or even a !irammar school,
except nine months when I was a child."
Here the governor sprang from his sent,
and staring at Ben cried out:
`Never at a college I Well, and wheit..—
where did you get your education, pray 7"
"At home, sir e in a tallow-chandler's shop."
"Ina tall \ ow-chandler's shop I" screamed
"Yes, sir, my Father was a poor old tab
low-chandlerwith sixteen children, and I the
youngest of all ; at 8 years of age•he put me
to school, but finding he could not spare the
ttnoney from the rest of the children to keep
me there, he took me home ;to the shop,
where I assisted -hiM by twisting the candle
wicks and filling the moulds all day, and at
night I read by myself.
-• Here the governor spatted his hands to
gether, and gave a loud whistle, while his
eye-balls, wild with surprise, rolled about in
their sockets as if in a mind to hop out.
"It4ossible s young manl" he exclaimed,
"impossible; you are only sounding my ered
uality. I can never believe the one half of
this." • Then turning to the Captain he said:
"Captain, can this young man here be aim
ing at anything but to quiz me ?"
"No, indeed, please your excellency," re
plied the captain, "315. Franklin is not quiz
zing you ; he is saying what is
. really true,
for I am acquainted with his father and fami
The governor then turning to Ben, said
more moderately: "Well, my dear wonderful
boy, I ask your pardon for doubtiug, your
word , and new Tray tell me, for I feel a
stronger desire than ever to,hear your objec

Taking them one with another, men do not
live above forty years. Plutarch, indeed,
only puts it at thirty-three. But say fbrty.—
Well, of this, full ten years are lost in child
hood, before any boy thinks of a Latin gram
mar. This brings the forty down to thirty.
Now, of such a moment as this to spend five
or Six years in learning the dead, languages;
especially, when all the best books in thoSe
languages are translated into ours—and, be
sides, we already have more books on every
subject than such. short lived creatures can
ever acquire—seems very preposterous."
"Well, what are you to do with their great
POets, Virgil and Homer, for example ; I
suppose you would not think of translating
Homer out of his rich native Greek into our
poor i homespun - English, would you?'
" Why not, sir ?" -

" Well,. sir, a skilful gardener, with his hot

"J agree he has too much revenge in his

"Why this, though an uncommon view of

Mr. Franklin; but, surely, .'tis over-strain

in your charges against Homer."

Here the. governor came to a pause. But
perceiving Ben cast his eye on a splendid
copy of Pope, he suddenly seized that as a
fine opportunity to turn the conversation.--
So stepping up, he placed his hand on his
shoulder, and in a very familiar manner,
"Well, Mr. 'Franklin, there's an author
that I am sure you will not quarrel with ; an

"Why, sir," replied Ben, "I entertain a
most exalted opinion of Pope ; but still,'sir,
I think he is nut without his faults."
"It would puzzle you, I suspect, Mr
Franklin, as keen a critic as you are, to poin

the place, " what do you think of this fa

"Well, sir, if I might presume to alter a

DENILY CLAY'S D0.111.E AND GRAVE.
We made a promise some days ago, says
the Cincinnati Gazette of September 25th,
to give an account of our visit to Ashland,
which for so many years was the home of
Henry Clay, a name dear to the Americtin
people, and to which memory clings like ivy
to the oak.
Ashland has •often been described by abler
pens than Ours, and its name has gone forth
to the ends of the earth. Those who have
preceded us, however, saw Ashland when in
its full glory, as a , quiet, modest, unpretend
ing dwelling, and when the occupant was in
his pride of place, first in the race of men.
Those days have passed away, never to re
turn. Not only has the jewel vanished from
our sight, but the casket has been broken
which contained it. Henry Clay is dead 40
Ashland is a ruin:
It was Pear the close of a warm and pleas
ant day, that we rode in a carriage from the
hoteldoor in Lexington to Ashland. We
were not prepared to find the dwelling total
ly demolished, but all that remained of it
was..part of a brick_ which _ had once
served to divide. the parlor &Om the library,
and upon this some half tlozen men were at
work—with- crowbar andjielcaxei — levellirug
it to the ground. All, therefore, that remains
of the old homestead of 'the Statesman, is a
pile of bricks and rubbish. We were told
that the pre'S'e"nt proprietor of the estate—a
son of Henry abaut.to erect on the
situ. of the old dwelling a new edifice, of its
exact fortrf- -and character. This will make
some amendi for...the work of demolition he
has .completed, but it Will hardly pardon it.
The old house, might have been repaired, it
should net have been deAtroyed. It was one
of those consecrated spots, those shrines of
liberty, to which the pilgrim would eft retire
to revive hope. and strengthen his love of
Aside from the interest affixed to the spot
because of him who so many years found

to our mind the grave of Sir Walter Scott,

A RAT STORY.—The following rat story
was related ,to us by a neighbor, and did it
not come from a source which entitles it to
the utmost credit, we should feel somewhat
dubious about the truth of the matter ; but
as it is, we believe every word of it.
Our neighbor says that he was very much
barrassed by these animals, and bad devised
various , plans for their destruction. Among
the expedients emplOyed was a barrel placed
upright, which 'lie had prepared by sawing a
hole in the upper head about six inches
square. Bait was put into this barrel near
tbe'battoin, just above a few inches of water,
hoping that the rats might be induced 'to
jump in and be drowned.
Fromtime to time the delicious moresl was
taken away and no rats entrapped. Feeling
anxious to know by what means this was ac
complished, he placed himgelf in a to forable
position to watch progresL The secret was
soon out. Several rats soon collected, one
larger: than the rest taking the lead. This
one let himself down into the barrel by cling
ing to the edge of the opening. Near this
was a small auger hole, in which he inserted
one of his fore paws, while with' the other he
clung to the edge, of the larger hole, there
by -securing a firm
,grip. Then another
would descend until he could embrace the
first one round the hips, and so on till a per
chain was formed tails downward, reach
ing the bait. Then a rat, which had 111 d
himself in reserve, ran down The chain and
bore away the prize! But the most curious
part of the storNr to come.- • Our inform
ant says that when the bait was brought out
ilot a rat ventured to touch it until the chain
was unlinked, and all were :present to share
in its disposal.—Westfield Transcript.
