J believe thnt, sooner or later, there come to every man dreams of ambition, i They may be covered with the sloth ofj 1 abit, or with a pretence of humility; they may come only in dim, shadowy I visions, that feed the eye, like the glo ries of an ocean sunrise: but you may be sure that they will come ; even before one is aware, the 1 old. adventurous gd-1 dt\'s, whose name is ambition, and whose dower is Fame, will be toying with a bold hand : she make3 timidity strong, I and weakness valiant. '! he way of a man's heart will be fore shadowed by what goodness is in him? coming from above and from around : I but a way foreshadowed, is not a made way. And the making of a man's way I comes only from that quicktmng of re I solve, which we call ambition. It is the spur that makes man struggled withl destiny; it is Heaven's own incentive,! to make purpo-e great, and achievement J greater. It would be strange if you, in lhatj cloister-life ol a college, did not some-1 times feel a dawning of new resoive>. I Thiy grapple you. indeed, oftener than! you dare to speak of. Here, you dream I lirst of that very sweet, but very shad-1 owy success, called reputation. You think of the delight and astoais j- I ment it would give your mother and I lather, and most of all little Nelly, if you I were winninir such honors as n >w es-1 cape you. Y ou measure your capacities-1 by these abou'. you, and waicn then I habit o! study : A'ou gaz-; tor a halt hoi it I t- gether upon some '?uccessful man who! i has won hi.-? prizes ; aud wonder by what! | secret action he has done it. And v. I;?rn. I in tiaie, you come to be a competitor I ! yourself, your anxiety is immense. j } ou spend hours up n hours at youi I theme; you write and re-write; andl when it is at length complete, and out cfj your hands, you are harassed by a thou-1 sand doubts. At limes, a< you rccal I yiur hours of toil, you question if sol much hat been spent upon any other;! you feel almost certain of success Youl repeat to yourself some parages of st>e I cial eloquence at night. You fancy the J admiration of the professors at meeting I with such wonderful performance. You I have a light lear that its superior good-1 ness uity awaken ihe suspicion thn.l hoin;. one ou! of the college?some supe-l rior man may have written it. Uui this! fea1' dies sway. I The evcntlul day is a great one in your I cMend -.r; vou hardly skep the night | pevious. Vou tremble as the rhapji-j bell is rung ; you profess to be very indif-1 terent as the reading and the prayer! close; you even stoop to take up your I hat?as if you had entirely overlookedI the fact that the old president *asin thel desk f jr the express purpose of declaring I the successful names. You listeu dream-1 ily to his tremulous }*et fearfully distinct! enunciation, lour head swims strangely. I They ah pas-, out with a harsh mui-l mur, along the aisles, and through the! door ways. It would be weil if therel were no disappointments in life more ter-1 rihie titan this, it is consoling to ex-1 press very deprecating opinion^ of th.-j Faculty in general; and very contemp-1 tuous ones of that particular oflicer whol decided upon the merit of the prize I themes. An evening or two at Dal ton'?.I room go still further toward healing the! disappointment; and, ii ii must be said,! toward moderating the heat of your am-1 hi: ion. You grow up, however, unfortunately,] as the college years fly by, into a very I exaggerated S(.me of you own capacities. I Even the good, old, white-haired squire,! | for whom you had once entertained soI much respect, .seems to )Our crazy, clas-1 sic fancy, a very humdrum sort of per-1 sonage. Frank, although as noble a fel- I low as ever sat a h rse, is yet?you can-1 not help thinking?very igp.oiant of Eu-| ripides ; even the English master at Dr. Bidlow s a.chool, you leel sure, would balk at a dozen problems you could give him. You get an exalted idea of that uncer tain quality which turns the heads of a vast many ot your fellows, called?ge ! nius. An odd notion seems to be inher-1 ; ent in the atmosphere of those collegel I chambers, that there is a certain faculty I of mind?first developed ?s would seein I | in colleges?which accomplishes what i ever it chooses without any special pains-1 taking. For a time, your fall yourself { into this very unfortunate balluom*tion ; I J you cultivate it after the usual college ' fashion, by drinking a \asi deal of strong ? coffee and whisky toddy?by writing a t little poor verse, in the Byronic temper, I and by studying very late at night, with j closed blinds. It costs you, however, more anxieiyl and hypocrisy than you could possibly! have believed. You will learn, Clarence, when'the j Autumn has rounded your hopeful Sum mer, if not before, that there is no Genius i in life, like the Genius of energy and in dustry. You will learn that all the tra ditions so current among very young wen, that certain great characters have wrought their greatness by an inspi ration, as it were, gTOw out of a sad mis take. And you will further find, when you come to measure yourself with men that there is no rivals so formidable as those earnest, determined minds, which reckon the value of every hour, and which achieve eminence by persistent applica tion. Literary ambition may inflame you at certain periods; and a thought of some great names will flash like a spark into the mind of your purposes; you dream till midnight over books; you set up shadows and chase them down?other shadows, and they fly. Dreaming will never1 catch them. Nothing makes the scent ; like well, in the huut after distinction, but labor. And it is ft glorious thing, when once you are weary of the dissipation, and the ennui of your own aimless thought, to take up some glowing pig." of an earnest thinkt-r, and rend ?deep and long, until you fill the im tal of his thought tinkling: on your brain, and striking out from your flinty lethargy flashes of ideas that give the mind light and heal. And away you go. in the chase of what the soul within is creating on the in?tant, and you wonder at the fecundity of what seemed so barren, and at tho ripeness of what seems sa crude, i be glow of toil wakes you to the consciousness of your real capacities: you feel sure that they have taken a new step toward final de velopment. In such tnood it is that one feels grateful to the musty tomes, which .it other hour? ?t^nd like curiosity-mak ing -niimraies, . ith no warmth an<l no vitality. Now they grow into the affec t:.ons like ne?r found friends, a id gain a hold upon the heart and light a tire in t..e brain that years ai d the mould can not cover nor quench.
