We can easily believe that in ancient, times, it was necessary that barbarous na. titian should be conquered, and civilized li that the arts, and sciences should be bro't to light, fostered and improved and that the knowledge possessed should be transmitted in volumes to us. NlVre virtue, then. without the impelling principle of 'which I speak, is too inactive to effect this imd ; but the love of fame, like the beasts of a noonday sun upon a torpid animal, gives vigor to great endowments, and oft engages men, contrary to their so-called natural, inclinations in a course of honorable, urn ful conduct. But Fame being a high pin nacle of the Temple of Honor few rirhte suety attain its summit, and yet the, passion of its aspirants is untiring and universal.

A secret tumult is raised In the breast and an ultimatum sought for which in real ity is too empty to satisfy them. Differ• eat objects may allay other desires, but an increasing love of fame, produces only in pleasure which excites new projects in the mind, and urges the weary body to attempt their occomplishment.
