asr One -night General , of
Sherman's army, was out on the line,
and observed .a light on.-the mountain
opposite. Thinking it was a aiinal
light of the enemy, he remarked to hut
artillery officer that a hole could ef.sily
be put through it. Whereupon the
officer, turning to the corporal in charge
of the'gun, said : "Corporal, do yon see
that light ?" "Yes, Sir." "Put a Lole

The corporal sighted tha gun, and when
all was ready, he looked up 'and
"Captain, -that's the moon." "D. ii't

It has been said that we are indebted
for the important invention in the steam
engine' termed hand gear, by
. which its
valves or cocks are worked by the ma
chine itself, to an idle boy of the name
of fluinphrby Pottei,'Whobeing employ
to stop and open a valve, saw that he
could save himself the trouble of atteAd

upon a part of, the machine which came
to the place at the proper times, in con
sequence .of the general movement. If
this anecdote he true, what., does it
prove? : That Butophrey .Pater might
be very idle, but that he was, at the

contrivance, not the result of mere acci•

The father of Eli Whitney on his re.

It is related of Ohantry, the celebra
ted sculptor, 'that when a boy he was
observed by a gentleman at, Sheffield,
very attentively engaged in cutting a
stick with a penknife. He t6ked the
lad what he was doing. "I am cutting
old Fox's head." Fox was the school
master of, the village. On this, the gen
tleman asked to see what he had, done,
pronounced it excellent, and presented
the youth with a sixpence. How maey
would have at once characterized the
occupation of the boy as it mischievous

Yes, Compositions we are to have

hard task; yet it is a duty imposed upon
us for our good. It teaches us to give
expression to our thoughts on paper for
the benefit of the whole school instead
of uttering them tcrone or two, which
