speak, is too inactive to effect this imd ;
but the love of fame, like the beasts of a

vigor to great endowments, and oft engages
men, contrary to their so-called natural,
inclinations in a course of honorable, urn

of its aspirants is untiring and universal.

and an ultimatum sought for which in real

increasing love of fame, produces only in
pleasure which excites new projects in the
mind, and urges the weary body to attempt
their occomplishment. But, ns Ambition

PRESIDENTIAL HAIR.-111 the Patent Of
fice at Washington, there are many objects
of interest connected with the government,
and those who administered its affairs in
times gone by. While examining some of
these objects at curiosity, when in Wash

Here is, in fact a part and parcel of what
once constituted the living bodies of those
illustrious individuals, whose names are
as familiar as household words, but who
now live only in history and the remem

ington is of n pure white, fine and suiNih
in its appearance. That of John Adams
is naarly the same color, though a tittle
coarser• The hair of Jefferson is of a dif

was remarkable fur its bright color, The
hair of Madison is coarse, and of a mixed
whir• and dark. 'The hair of Monroe is a
handsoine dark auburn, smooth and free
;coin any admixture whatever. De is the
only President except Pierce, whose hair
had undergone no change in color. Thp
hair ofJohn Quincy Adams is some what
peculiar, being course, and of yellowish
gray color. The hair of 'etieral Jackson
is almost a perfect white but coarse in
its character, as might ho supposed by
those who have examined the portraits of
the old hero. Tha hair of Van Iluren is
white in oppearanc t. The hair of Gene' ,
Jackson is a fino whit:, with a slight ad•
