It has be Ronic a trite subject and one which when harped on Only Nwa Kons a smile or utmost a Pas a ing remark Nind is forgot ten. Who re elects a Hon the nights of la Hor and the hours of anguish which he passes who thinks of his mortified Pride and the rude inns that sweep Over and almost Helm his honest ambition who believes that to experiences the Simc desire to maintain a reputation for punctuality and Honor in his dealings that must be observed in other pursuits.

Who imagines that to struggles with his Best energies to sustain his credit and uses As much unfurl to Compass that end of Marks the mercantile Community or any other interest in sooth but few. Ilia earnings Are trifling compared to Tho vast amounts which swell the fortunes of those who venture upon the a Ioa of Trade. The Reward of his incessant toil is but Small and is expected to 1� drawn from myriad a so laces each one of which that fails Only tends to diminish his Stock and expose More plainly How needless has been All his labor. He is Little blessed ill the punctuality of his patrons. For the few who do Honor to his drafts when presented by How Many Are they protested to is either worthy or he is not. Lie is led on Nion tii after month and year after year in the vain Hope that the bread he has cast upon the Waters will return. It is too Aften like the i it a while canvass is seen for the last time and whose proud prow seeks Tho Friendly Bench no Nitro. Tew can Tell the heart aches and the anguish Tim tare his constant companions and the cheerless gloom that surrounds him. Lie stands Nione in Tho Community unless like the creeping Ivy to insinuates i inset around the wealthy aspirant who can ukr him and will pay for the vile Vassalage to which he subjects him. There is no calling More honorable and opening More avenues to a audible ambition than the management of an inde end enl press it is a gymnasium fur Tho iii no when it is constantly exercised do when its alien energies Are de Blu cd. It demands us much intellect a As much untiring Industry As much research and As much judgement a Tho bar the pulpit or the forum. It requires As much Cloae and acute discrimination As the Moat abstruse science and most perplexing Art. Then Why is it so Little appreciated and if appreciated Why to i liberally and niggardly Reward it professes to give a quid pro quo and does give but alas for Shafi it seems As if men did not reflect that Tite Printer has wants and that they must to supplied that to devotes his whole time his labor and his Means for their instruction fur their Benefit and for their entertainment that the resources of his mind Are fathomed and his memory and impression and convictions and imagination Are All made subject to the despotism of their demands. If he loiter and play the laggard How is he censured How is he upbraided for his neglect i hit paper fail but for one it Lay in reaching its destination How is he condemned for want of punctuality i if he find nothing that is new that serves not to amuse that does not a tar tie with its originality How a he abused for the barrel oct of his Shtaml Tilv Bitout All abstract Ion it is truth. It has Tima and trial. His inde pen Deom is Down for presumption and his to menu of is kind Ebay As arrant affection. He is kept Curll Down by a Power which he in vain endeavours to throw of.

Weekly wages to sustain them and their Amilte. He is compelled to have paper or his publication must Stop and the result is bankruptcy and ruin he must pay his rent else will his landlord refuse the tenement in which his operations Are carried on. To must have Cash for be is not indulged with Long credits. His necessities Are known and Practised upon. He is ground Down by an Iron Rule which if he were to adopt his patronage would soon waste away. Men think because of Van Fri dues Are in trifling sums that it is of trivial importance whether or not they Are paid that it will make Little difference if one fail to meet a demand when presented. Yet if it be the general impression and each one appropriates to himself the right of withholding the m Micum How is tae 7>rin/fr to exist. He is not Quot in the a Mun Unity who More than. Toolbar it a moves to be re Paidl kin labor it is the Printer him h not an easy and to Neure task As is i of of Tim gained. As Mutoli promptness is expect de from Bun a if he were Niet with punctuality by All Hill in and a Audi Gamt patrons. Those in his employ Namu Tara a working Nien who look to their Chameleon to live on air. He has the same prese a tons the same appetites the same necessities As other men. When one engages in the printing business it generally requires his whole Cap Tui to Purchase the materials and fixtures necessary to fit up his establishment and to make a commencement. He looks for his a Reward in the constant increase of his patronage and the punctuality of his patrons. He expects to Render an equivalent for his demands amp he expects to be paid. He trusts to his daily income to meet his current demands. He ventures his credit with the anticipated Assurance that he will not be forgotten by his subscribers for whom he daily caters. His terms Are made payable in Advance Thot he May receive his Reward during the Progress of his Labo r a be enabled to make a proper estimate of his chances of profit or of loss. He can i hereby ascertain How far his must be curtailed and what foreign Aid is necessary to meet them. Unless payment be made to him in Advance he is Labouring upon an uncertainty a and when methinks Good easy Man full surely Ilis Triune is a ripening Quot there May come Quot a killing Frost Quot to blast and Wither every Hope. He May have ventured Quot far beyond his depth Quot and Ere to is aware be whelmed in irretrievable ruin. The subscriptions of a Printer Are his Stock in Trade. They Are the proceeds of his outlay of capital. They form an annuity which he has purchased and when they fail to produce when he is bankrupt there he awakens to find his capital gone and bankruptcy in every thing. To be rendered available then the sub a options should be promptly paid. If it be asked Why the necessity of Advance payments Tho answer is this these subscriptions Are scattered Over a vast territory. Small amounts Are to be gathered from most Remote sources. In the aggregate they would swell to a considerable sum. Embarking in business the Hope of collecting these scattered trifles into an important aggregate is indulged. Expenses commensurate with their number Are incurred and must be met. Time wears on. This Mon from whom punctuality was expected after taking the paper for some months becomes dissatisfied and orders it to to discontinued. The sum due is too Small to be remitted or to pay Tho expense of collection it is a dead loss to the Printer who has already incurred it i the expense but meets no equivalent. Or Tho subscriber May fail or die or Movel Way to parts unknown alas the Printer is Seldom remembered. Poor Fel Low he Heark his old Patron say Quot pshaw it is but a trifle he will never miss it a and some Day or other if it is convenient i will pay, such Tho course of reasoning if the Printer s dues Ever Cross his memory. For every Printer who has defrauded his Patron there have been a thousand printers defrauded by Thern. Another reason for Advance payments is that at the time of subscribing provided it be done in Good Faith there is an intention to pay. If it be inconvenient at the time the first Opportunity should be sei7�d Quot to make conveyance sure Quot for As the year tolls by or is numbered with the past the feeling of the necessity or obligation of making payment fades away till too frequently it is Altof ther obliterated there is nothing which the same amount can Purchase so valuable As a newspaper. It is a Little world within itself. It is fraught with intelligence and instructions furnishes a fund of entertainment a affords a Birdseye View of Tho out Era lion of the every Day world. It a Hso Ples Solitude with a thousand companions. It brings Novelty where was but satiety. To be without it were to return to barbarism a to Dragona lonely life Quot unknowing de to elevate the press to Render it Independent to give it the tone and character which should distinguish it to raise it above the grovelling spirit which in jews to wealth or Power to enable it to Lead the understandings of men and not follow like a Blind and supple Vassal ready to cringe at a frown or show fight at its masters by Quot pay Tho this homily extended far beyond our original design has not been read for an individual purpose it Aims to Benefit the Craft and explain some of the Dilt cuties under which they labor and Point out the remedy. Yet if any of our readers can appropriate aught of it to themselves they Are heartily Welcome and we Trust at no Long Date to find it appreciated. The Story of John Wood. By the following article com the Maysville Bagle it appears that the Pat Hatie tale of the sulter Ings and privations of this individual we Ipoh we publish Etc week before last turns ouf to a a hoax and he proved to be an impostor.

John Wood who is stated to have been it the the War of 1812, a a Yonng and industrious Farmer of Bracken county Kent duty on thursday after that tale of Captivity so Well calculated to enlist the Public sympathy was put in the hands of the compositor no less a personage than John Wood the veritable captive himself appeared in oar City and attracted crowds to see him and to hear from his own , a detail of his wrongs and sufferings in British prison ships and on Board British men of heard Hie narrative without suspicion of imposture other a More in credulous believed that his language was too Chase and his deportment too refined for a Brigith Sailor and occasionally insinuated a Doug As to the truth of his statements. Of Friday the impression became general tha be was an impostor and to me of the citizens who had questioned him pretty closely he finally acknowledged Tho fact and immediately expressed a wish to see the resident minister of the methodist episcopal Church. Upon arriving at the residence of that gentleman he unexpectedly met and was soon recognized by a venerable Clergyman of he same denomination late of Ohio. As soon As Wood beheld this venerable minister of the Cross he burst into tears and declared that he had come to acknowledge that he was an impostor. 7 he history of Wood As far As known together with his disclosures Are in substance As follows he is a native of Vermont Between 60 and 55 years of age about the Ordinary size of rather pleasant countenance and agreeable manners. A Kut 10 or 12 years since he came to Moscow Vermont county Ohio in feeble health and repeated substantially the same tale which he has recently told at Massillon and other places with this difference in the version that he had leh a Mother and two Sisters in Vermont instead of a wife and two children in Kentucky and that his capture took place at a gift Orient time and under other circumstances from that now related. His tale was readily credited and he obtained employment As Wood chopper for the Glass works then in operation at Moscow. He Sci gained in that situation for 2 years and by his Industry and morality gained the respect and Confidence of the neighbourhood. To subsequently became a member of the methodist episcopal Curchy and shortly after was licensed to preach the gospel. He was imn mediately assigned by the presiding elder to the St. Mary s Mission and after discharging his duties for Tome time to All human a it Arances with the utmost Fidelity he was so unfortunate when absent from Hom As to become intoxicated and feeling himself disgraced he abandoned his station and no Trace was afterwards disco vied of him. His subsequent history is related by himself. He states that after leaving his charge he first wandered to new Orleans thence lie found Bis Way to Alaba Nui where he United with the Baptist Church and recommenced preach iii the gospel. Shortly Amer forming this Eon Nec iii the Chriatian advocate reached Alabam a containing a detail of his proper conduct with a description of his person. Fearing detection and exit sure to immediately abandoned Alabama and went to the Creek nation of indians. Dissatisfied with his condition among the indians he returned to Tho states and Sou Glit an Asylum in one of the alms houses in Maryland where he remained one year. A Edwards he went to i Enny Ylva Uia and remained five years in an alms House. Nothing further is known of him until he appeared at Massillon As the returning captive Many persons who visit him believe that he is suffering under some menial alienation. This opinion appears to be the most charitable one As he has manifested no disposition to make very heavy draws upon the sympathies excited by his Laleff woes. Prom whatever cause however whether it be avarice or a rental aeration a we feel it our duty to guard the Community against his impost Tion. He left on Friday Amer soon evidently under some apprehension of perk Onai injury although nothing was said calculated to excite fears. Apply Chon. Or.

This much is Cesio that when old Jackson caught him tangled in the mysteries of nil fiction he dealt with him in Alofa a aortas to leave him no alternative but to renounce his old principles of free construction and Federal iii Roma by. But when we hear Biro pleading fir Buren who betrayed him and us we cannot help my it letting that he has not forgotten his first love.

We have received from our Friend. Fab list some further paraphrases of i sop. As a sort of into Duc Tion to the whole he re it tests us to give the first place to the following fable. We May add by the Way that they Are from one of the most Distin fished pens in Virginia thrown off in his Quot Idle for the Lions of the Day. Tax Ipoh and the gnat. A lion springing one Day from his Den Tore the ground with his paws lashed himself with his Tail and roared Defiance to the Forest. At this moment a gnat stung him on the nose.
