If i Only had is strange animal and is composed of bundle of inconsistencies. From the moment when he begins to act for himself and is capable of weighing the advantages of life he a plays such fantastic tricks before High head co a would make the real philosopher laugh at his follies and foibles or pity the strange aberrations of a most strangely organized mind. It is impossible to account a with All the metaphysical Light that a incs upon human motives for the mysteries of his nature or to solve the grand problem of bus temporal Chis tence. I is resolutions arc like rope of Sand to they Are made in the Best of Faith and they perish Jike the epic Mera of a Day before any thing has been accomplished towards that degree of perfection which had been enthusiastically marked out. He determines upon a course of action the objection a of which is to give him an elevated standing intellectually and morally a Mong the beings of creation which swarm around but like the evanescence of the Rainbow it partakes of All its varied tints and perishes while he May still be contemplating the splendid Prospect before him. Every one has discovered that it is easier to make resolutions than preserve them it is much less difficult to say what ought to he done and what shall be dope than it is to carry out the Many scheme which enter into the mind for the accomplishment of proposed ends. No Man lives and probably never has lived on this Earth who docs not Fri quintly either in the quiet a ostentatious movements of his own heart or in the pompous vanity of egotistical boasting Promise soon to consummate a certain amount of Good and change the whole character of his ways. Tout alas his praiseworthy intentions Are easily dissipated by the lightest breath of sensuality he knows not How to forego the habits of life which Jive become to him a second nature and to abandon which seems like quitting All the delicious pleasures of the world and going into a moral exile the More difficult to endure because he knows not what it is to practice any self denial. While this is entirely True with most men and the exceptions to it Only establish the general rules you never meet with one who is not Able to furnish you with what he considers a very plausible and sound apology for the miscarriage of his purposes. He confesses he has not done what he once intended to do but then the truth is he had not time to do it. There was always something else that had the first right to his Leisure Ami when that was done then he intended to commence the work of reformation. Poor old time has been forced to Bear a great Load of this Orlds Short comings. Hore is a Little Urchin now chattering around us in Al the sprightly tones of childhood. We will just ask him a Lew questions to test our opinion.

The probability is when he goes to school he will rec Eye a punishment for neglecting his Book which he can justify himself for doing by pleading a want of time. In this respect he is like the grown up members of the human family. Precious moments Are wasted and a ready excuse is found possessing about As much Force a that of Charles he has to make a Kite there no want of ambition in Man. To soon As he Hei the pageantry achy Ming and am laying Plana. But All in a a a a of a or us a. Fortunately he never Haa to a to com. Menee his plans.

But he never begins his work he Ives on the same Man of resolutions until the Hoar Frost of age settles upon his temples and then he contents himself with the excuse that he has not time any to Gether this the great land Sale that was to take face this fall in the territory of vis from the new York courier and enquirer.

Worlds honors. App have known some men who had not even time to get themselves a wife and attend to the thousand Little endearments of love. They religiously designed at no very Distant Day to give to the gentler sex some share of their time and affections but at present they either had not a sown their wild Oats a As dissipation is modestly called or else they were so much engrossed with the moment us nothings of life that for the souls of them they could not find sufficient time for such a purpose. A procrastination is the thief of time a says the proverb and yet there is no Man that will not furnish you with the excuse for delay that he had not sufficient time. Life is thus corroded and rusted away by this lamentable Scarcity of time and Many a Bright intellect endowed with great natural advantages has dreamed away its vigor and shrunk almost to idiocy merely because time could never be found to give it employment. In this manner Man lives. Instead postponement was required still More important consideration that the postponement will be attended with Good results fit is not until quite lately that the surveys have been completed and time must necessarily intervene Between the surveys and the notice of Public Sale. It is required by Law that three months notice of the Sale be Given Forward to a season which would fender Access to the Point where it will take place for those who would wish to attend from a distanced after the close of Lake navigation visit to the Western Shore Flake Michigan would not be among the most pleasant trips that could be named.

We extract a single paragraph a Boston traveller. A it is the custom of our times to erect Beautiful structures for the purpose of the present life for legislation for literature for the arts. But As important As these interests Are they Are not the noblest. Many a highest relations Are not political earthly human.
