ADVICE TO Worm Max :—ln his val
edictory address the , ex-Lord Rector of
Glasgow Univerility, Sir E. Bawer Lyt-
In, lately offered the following excel
lent maxims to the stets
"Never affect, (hosed to be other
than you are, either richer or wiser.
Never be ashamed to say, whether ap
plied to time or money, 'I cannot afford
to waste an hoer in the idleness to which
you have invited me. I cannot afford
the guinea you ask me to throw away.'
"Once establish yourself and your
mode of life at what they really are, and
your feet are on solid ground, whether
for the gradual step onward, or for the
sudden spring over the , precipice."
From these maxims let me deduce
another :—Learn to say "noNiiith deci
sion ; "yes" with midden. - '4No" with
decision whenever it meets. &temptation;
"yes" with caution whenever if implies
a promise. A. prciMise givenls a tund
inviolable. A man is already of conse
quence in the world when it is known
that we can implicitly rely on him. I
have frequently seen such a man prefer-'
red to a long list of applicants for some
important charge ; he has been lifted
at once into station and fortune merely
because he has the reputation that when
he says he knows a . thing, he knows it;
and when he says he Wip-do a thing, he
will du it."
Ifit How to get rid of your come.—
Rub them over with toasted cheese, and
let your feet hang out of bed for a night

If the mice do their duty the remedy
will be sufficient.

hriogs •relation to the author.*
In 1452 Faust carried a number of
bibles to Paris, and disposed of them as
manuscripts, ( the invention of printing
having been thus ter kept a profonnd
secret..). At firafhe sold them at 'the
high price of six hundred ' crowns, the
sum usually obtained by the 'scribes.
Faust afterward lowered his price to
sixty crowns, which created universal
astonishment; but when he produced
them according to the demand, and even
reduced the price to thirty, all Paris
became agitated.. Information was
given against him as a magician ; his
lodgings were searched, S great number
of bibles were found and seized ; the red
ink with which they were embellished,
was said to lie his blood, and it was ad
judged that he was in league with the
devil. lie was cast into prison, ; and
would probably have been put to death,
had he not divulged the discovery of the
art. This circumstange gave rise to the
tradition of "The Devil and Di. Faust

The Discoverers of the Art of Print
To Guttemberg, Feist, and Schcef
fer, it is 'generally acknowledged, the
World is princiPally indebtdd'for the die
covery of the art of priding. This in
vention is also claimed for Laurentibi
Koster, of Heerlen', but the preponder:
ance' of evidence is against hie 'claini.
We will briefly ,mention the few inci
dents which have come down to us in
the lives of these men to whom' their
posterity is so much indebted.
John Guttemberg, or, Geinsfleich, the
reputed inventor, of printing,'„,was born
at Mentz, in Germany, of noble and
wealthy parents, about the year 1400.
In 1424 he took up hie residOnce at
Strasburgh, as a merchant ; I but from a
deed of accommodation between himself
and the noblEis and burghers of Mentz,
in 1430, it is 'evident that he returned
to his native 'place. Sahcepflielteserts
that-he was a wealthcran in that city,
in 1434. Scriverius informs us that he
resided at Stiesbnigh, from 1436 to
1444, during which period he made sev
eral ineffectual attempts to gain a per
fect knowledge of the art of printing ;
not succeeding, he quitted Strasburgh
and returned to Mentz, where he open
ed'his mind fully to John Faust; atoldt
smith, and prevailed on him to advance
large sums, in , order to make more com
plete trials of the art. Between 1450
and 1455, the celebrated bible of six
hundred and thirty-seven leaves, the
first important specimen of printing, was
executed between Guttemberg and
Faust. There is a copy of it upon vel
lum, in the royal library in Berlin ; five
copies are also known upon paper. It
is a singular circumstance, and one that
has justly excited the surprise of biblio
graphers, that no work has , been discov
ered with Guttemberg's name upon it.
In 1465 be was honored by Archbishop
Adolphus with a mark of distinction to
which his genius and his labor entitled
him. Be was admitted among 'the no
bility of his court, allowed to wear the
dress peculiar to that order, and had a
pension,•together with several privileg
es end exemptions conferred upon him,
Guttemberg died .1E" February, 1468, and
was interred in the church of Recol
lets, at Mentz.' The statue of Guttem
berg, by Thorwaldsden, was erected at
Mentz, in 1837. fit
The partnership before alludO t to of
Gnttemberg'and Faust; was disioLid in
1455, and Faust continued the, nese
alone. The types on which the rint
ing had been thus Lr executed, had
been each separately engraved on wood
or metal, a tedions.and costly method.
But Peter Schceffer, of Gernshein,
journeyman in the employ of Fa
discovered the method of cutting
characters in a matrix or mould, whicb
admitted the more rapid and easy pro
cess of basting the letters. He private
ly cut matrices for the whole alphabet;
and when he showed Faust the letters
cast In them ; his employer was so pleas
ed with theinvention, that ho gave him
his daughter Christiana in marriage, and
made him a partner in his business.
The types at first cast by SchtnEfer pro
ved too soft to support the force of the
impression ; but he soon found ,a meth
od of remedying this defect, by mixing
the n3etal with a substance which hard
ened it. This improvement of Schcef
fer Was the consummation of the intim
tion of the art of printing ; and
date tbe commencement of this Unpin.-
taut era from,this period.

It is Thanksgiving when weintroduce
to our , readers Mr. and Mrs. Leslie.
They are in deep distress for today
their little daughter Miry was 'either
lost or stolen; she had been allowed to
go into the front yard to leek for some
friends that were , expected to, dinner.;
she bad ,been dressed very. nicety for
the expected guests, when Jane, that is

some playthings, Mary went With her
and after passing through some of the
principal streets they went into a little
side street and after a little while they
entered an old house ; after' going up
two or three flights of stairs, they came
to a door openiag on the right, which
the woman ( whose name was Mrs.:Bud

little Mary very much -and she cried
very hard to be taken back to ; -her
mother. After Mrs. Hudson , had ; . got

for an old torn; rag that could hardly bp

her how to sell matches and little nick

matters stood for about three months
when Mrs. Hudson took her to one of
the busiest streets to sell her nick-nacks,
Mary was very much changed from a
healthy girl of seven •ta a pale 'sickly
looking child of ten.. Years thus lolled
on. • As Mr. Leslie was •walking. along
the streets on Thanksgiving day about
three years from when.'we first intro

accosted by a little girl apparently
about ten years old, asking him to buy
something; he had 'often met her before
and thought that she bore some resem
