Many Jears have a sed since then my neither party has Yeeu any cause to regret the abrupt proposal and acceptance. Of the business style we can cite a Case related to us which we know for a True one. A Young Man who had succeeded to the ill Keurt and badly though re no Jar valuable farm of a Doceu Sej Uncle saw at glance that two things were by necessary to enable him to succeed the first being a wife to take charge of the woman s department and the second a few thousand dollars to Stock it Vilh. He co d not help thinking to himself that possibly these two great adds to Bis happiness and Prosperity might be found together and yet without attempting to put his matrimonial and financial ideas into practice he Al Lowed them to haunt him constantly. With this upon his mind our Farmer started open a horseback journey to a Dis Tant part of the country and upon his re turn upon the Road 1n the person of an old gentleman who was jogging the same Way. The companions together at a Imi Anu Fra Terni act plea sanity daring watch tic Young Man opened Bis Lhart to the elder him All Hie Pinna and aspirations when the old gentleman addressed the younger i rather like Yon my Friend and Jour i honest telling put Story.

However we will be Good and must sometimes run Over this ended the conference and they parted. The Man mounted his horse to i4. J i May be the very one you Are Teo Kift if so i will do my 1-est toward making the and Roje Down toward the Road but jus us he was about opening the Gate stooping from his Saddle the faced Kate h o sprang through the shrubbery to save Bun the trouble. Can t you accept my father s terms 1 by George i will if you say so was the instantaneous response then come Over to Morrow morning be fore ten o clock and Tell him and the girl vanished like a fairy among the leaves the Young Man Rode slowly Home in he was on hand next morning according to and married the fair Kate in two pro nth after. .a8 a specimen of the absurd we canno do better than cite a Case that Witbak our own jurisdiction in a Village of Massachusetts. There was a cer Tain Zachariah Peebles a Stout industrious sober and bashful farm hand a resident o that lock Lily. Zack was celebrated not for what he did say but for what he did not his silence matter of Marvel thro All that chattering neighbourhood. With All his tact Zrnity was1 not proof against the shafts of love and one Day was smitten with the wholesome charms of the Only child of the widow Brown a Brigit eyed Good looking girl possessing the same trait of silence As Zack though not in so eminent a degree. The first time Zack showed Hia Admira Tion for Sally was by seizing no a Large Basket of cow feed she was about to carry into the und hurrying thither in a frightened Way much As though he was taking it from a burning House. After that Zacc seen fed to be perpetually on the watch for opportunities to save the Faisal by from heavier work. Delicate attentions could not fail to attract the Atten Tion of the widow Brown who reply Tif spec Tingche invited him int. Among the oddities of the mystery the one Over which we personally won dered much occurred in Philadelphia with in our own knowledge. A lady and gentleman who bad been acquainted but one week and who move in the very first circles were walking upon the Street the lady showing the Lions of the City to the gentleman who was Astran Ger in Philadelphia. In the course of their ramble they were stopped by a wedding party who were alighting from their carriages at a Church door. The lady pro. Posed to go in and see the affair through the gentleman consented and together they stood till the ceremony was Over. At the instant the gentleman taking the lady s hand in Bis led her unresisting by to the altar without a single word spoken and presented her to the astonished minister with the request that they should be made one. In ten minutes the knot was tied and we have no reason to believe that either have in the ten Yeara they have been joined seen cause to regret the of the idea. Be that our Good Days Are More in number than our evil Days our Day a of Prosperity such i mean As Are suitable to on condition and circumstances than oar Days of adversity. This is most certain though most of us Are Apt to cast no our accounts otherwise. How Many Days of fat least competent health we inv enjoyed for one Day of Gri Evona sickness i for one danger that hath Star Coin was born to top inheritance of hard work As truly As the poorest labourer s that digs in our Fields. At seven years of age he was set to work axe in band to Clear Pula farm in a Western Forest. Until be was seventeen Bis life was simply that of a simple farm labourer with Only such intervals of school instruction of his whole life would not amount to More than one Yeier. At Nineteen he. Made a trip to new Orleans hired baud on a and on his return he split the mils for a log Cabin and built it and enclosed ten acres of fond with a rail Fence of Bis own Handiwork. The next year hot hired him self for twelve dollars a month to build a Flat boat and to take her to new Orleans and any one who knows what the life of a Mississippi Boatman was in those Days must know that it involved every kind of la Bor. I in 1832, in the Black Hawk Indian War the Hardy Boatman volunteered to fight for Bis country and was unanimously elected s Captain and served Frith abhor for sea son in Frontier military life after this while serving As a or sed us How Many scores of dangers have we escaped and some of Tham very narrow. By but alas we write our memories in the dust but our affliction we engrave in mar Law studies borrowing the books he was too poor to boy and studying by the Light of Bis evening fire. He acquired a name in the country about a a Man of shrewd Ness and resources be was one tuft Treopie looked to for Council in and to whom they were ready to Depute almost any Enterprise skill and Energy. The Surveyor of Sangamon county being driven with work came to him to take the Survey of a tract on his True he bad never studied what of he accepted the pro cured a Chain and Ditte wort. Do we not see in this a parable of the Wilder wilderness which in later years be has under taken to Survey and fit for human habitation without Chart or Surveyor s Chain f Little did the convention that Nomina Ted Abraham Lincoln for president know what they were doing. Little did the Hon est fatherly patriotic Man who stood in Bis simplicity on the platform at Spring Field asking the prayers of his townsmen and receiving their pledges to remember him foresee How awfully was to need those prayers the prayers of All this nation and the prayers of All the working suffer my common people Thibou ghost the world. God s band was upon him with b visible Protection saving first from the danger of at Baltimore and bringing him safely to oar National capital. Then the Lincoln is a Strong is of a Peculiar kind it is net much As and among passive Jii rugs it is like the strength not so much of buttress As of a wire it swaying to every influence on. Thib.
