A Kantucket correspondent gives an entertaining illnstralion of (lie "gradual progress ol'opinion" in this anecdote about a shipmate who accompanied him oil one of his early whaling voyages,: Stiles was asimple-hearted, transpa-.cut young fellow: and, when.hc'sailed, and been "paying attention" tor some time to 'a voting htdy, tvlio, he had' reason lo •think," did not inlly recipvocate his ardent feelings. At all events, thu parting, on her side, was not so affectionate as.hc'could wish, and lie was impressed with tbo belief that she only kept htm as a stand-by, in default of a bet er oiler.  "1 i'o.A believe, 1 ' Stiles would say, with a despoiident'shake of his head, 'l.doivt believe Anna Jones'll have me, anyhow."  When we had been out a. few months, and had met wills iair;;tii:ccss, Stiles' lone \yns modified. The burden ol his monoto-ue .changed to, '■Well, I cion'no but what" Anna Jones'll have me, after all." .  ;   Wiib a thousand barrels of oil under tba'ilr's, he became still more hopeful.' "Chance is pretty good lor Anna Jones," he V.ouid s::y : -pretty g' iod now.'"'  At lii'iecn hundred barrels he bad ¡ts.iumed a Kelf-fatisfirsl in.autier, and soliloquized ; "1 guess there's no danger but what Anna. Jones'll have me now." At two liionsa :il barrels: Anna Jones'll be glad euough-to get m ■ now, 1 know."  When we cut tho last whale thai was to till (he vessel's hold, ami squared away for home, Siiles ihrew his hat in tho air with a wild Indian of triumph; "I'll bchaiiged if I'll e Anua Jones, anyhow!"  work, The inner, or stone fortification was commenced. Accordingly to the best authenticated acconijls, about 1.S00 years before (he advent of our era. and with conrpletion the temporary outwork of brick were probably abandoned, as it« line is-through a country , incapable of producing enough to support the wants of a g:tr-rison such as would be required for. its defence. And the economy of the ancient Chinese government required' that the military organization should be self-supporting - , the soldiers ofi'dn-ty engaged in the cultivation of the soil, or .such mechanical employments as were adopted to the wants of the army. ■ . ..  Tlic existence of these'two walls has led to the dcfirepanoy in the relations oftravelers, (hose who have visited it from the north and west contending that, it is a structure of b iclr, in a ruinous condition; and those through the empire, from the south, that it is built of stone, supreme v grand in its architectural design, and in a wonderful state of preservation eousideriiig'that it has- withstood' the assaults of lime, and themaehinations of man to accomplish ils distraction, lor at least 2,500 years since the last stone was raised.

I have noticed that the prayer of every selfish man is "forgive lis pur debts/'that he makes everybody' pay who owes lum, to the utmost farth-ing.

Death summons the debtor,-and he lays down his dust iii the currency of mortality.  1 have noticed that, he who thinks every man a rogue is very certain to see one when he shaves himself, and he ought, in, morcy to li)S neigbor, to surrender the rascal to justice.  ' I have noticed that money i? the fool's wisdom, the knave's reputation, the wise man's jewels, tho rich man's trouble, the poor man's desire, tho covetous man's ambition, and the idol of nil.  I have noticed that whatever • is, is right, with few exceptions—the left eye, the left leg, and the left side of a p"lum|pnddi»g'.  I have npticed that merit is always measured iiv the world by its success.  I liavc noticed that in order to be a •reasonable creature it is necessary at times to be downright mad. ■■  I have always noticed that as wo , are always wishing instead of work-i ing ior lor!tines.

We,are not able to reach, them, tliev say, and the very laws by which honest men and women are governed,defend them from those who would free the -earth from their existence, as they would a pestilence.  When anti-whiskey laws are passed, violated, and then repealed, because they cannot, be enforced, so long will si.ieii . fiendish vultures swoop down upon, and .bear away loved ones from our very.midst. .Dare we, as Good Templars, raise out: arms and voices in resislancu to such legislation 'i lict-ter had a law never been passed., than lo be enacted, and then viplated'with  impunify. . . ....... .  J)o wo censure that darling child for being carried away and deslroved by the mountain eagle? I\'o more do I blame the poor victim of intemperance, (he common drunkard,,for his degradation : . for we all know bombard it is "sometimes to withstand temptation, and the circumstances -'under which he was pla ed may have been different from ours, and his powers of lTwistenee may not, have been so •rreat as ours. I\'o, rather rid our land of a rapacious monster, than to censure those who may wittingly fall iuto'his power.  Then, again, I would ask, ','What is a Good Templar?" .  He is ono who will help to destroy tho cause of the giant sin Iuteinper-enee. With his- trusty weapon upon his shoulder, loaded, not with harmless shot, whose sting tends rather 'to madden than destroy,-but, with a min-nie ball that, shall speed and borc its: way into the very heart lie will go forth, with his ami strengthened and his sight, intensified by a purpoge and a determination, and every action and word.and thought will be a shot, sure aud deadly in its aim, at this mpnster enemy of humanity, happiness arid hope. Ho will go out in the strength of.Him who sent him, and who is able, in the end, to crown his labors with glorious victory.—Exchange* .  No one department of business lias received more close -'study and investigation tlmu life insurance, and the almost unerring certainty of the actuary's calculations shows tli'o study not to have been in vain. Jiothing which has a tendency to shorlen life and, consequently increase the hazard, is over-looked by :lie medical examiner. After (lie long list of questions in regard to liera.dct.ary diseases, personal health and that at 1  relatives, the ques-Jion which we have used as a headline as propounded, "Vo yOiV USO >0-baeco or liquor?" Can any deny that the business of lifo insiminoe is based ou sound principal's, and that something like perfection has been reached in practically applying these principles ? We do not pretend to say that the mail who uses liquor or tobacco would be ejected as an unfit subject for insurance, but there, is no doubt. that these habits are taken into ac-cotint when the application is being considered. A combination of other objections which would not be sufficient lo induce, the rejeciitM! of the risk, wiii oueii considered snfileieiil when coupled with either or both Of these habits.- There is something, in this precaution by life"insurance companies that shotiil open the • eyes of (he thousands who. use tobacco and liquor. When men's pecuniary in-lei ; ests point in any particular diree-lio ', yoit'inay feel perfectly certain as to how they will act. The managers, of life, companies. have immenso amounts at slake in the lives of their policyholders; they liityc invcsliga-tetl the pros and cons of prospective 'ifc in a manner that has not.-been equaled by any other persons, and they consider these among the leading causes which shorten life. When men are not particularly interested they may laugh at the idea of tobacco being an injury, but when.it comes into the c.ilculations'of a business transaction, the verdict of health will always go to the abstainer.If the'use of these articles is not a- seriou§ .inju vy, why do these., men wlo ;hcv'e tlic results" of years of, experieneb itud study to guide them, pay any,attention to the iiiaUer? Tjiey never want to know if au applicant drinks \vatev or tea, or eats roast, beef.-'Wo leave the. suggestions, questions ntul facls with the.liquor dviuksvs aud. tobacco users. ' ■ ' ;   THE MAN.
