Let us make an excursion down the street, and pee what we can learn. Yonder is the wreck of a rich man '* son H? was permitted to grow np without employment, went and rame a- he pleased, and spent his time in the ?ratifination of spontaneous passions' desires, and inclination?, with no one to check hint, when his course wad evil, or encourage him in the way.* of wisdom. His father was rich and for that reason the son thought he had nothing to do, no nart in honest labor to perform. WeH. tne father died, and the son inherited a portion of his abundant wealth, and having never earned monoy by honest toil, he knew not the value of it, and having no knowledge of business. he knew not how huw to use it, so lie gave lou>e reins to his appetites and pas sions: and ran at a rapid pace down the broad Toad of dissipation. ?*ow behold hitn?a broken down man, bowed with infirmity, a mere wreck of what he was. both physically and mentally His money is gone, aud he live"# ?>n the charity of those whose hearts are open with pity. Mich is the fate of hundred* aud thousands that are born to fortune. And there, on the opp<i*ite side, in that com fortable mansion, lives the son of a poor cob bler. Fifteeu yean? ago he left the humble roof of hi? parents, and went forth into the broad world alone to seek his fortune. All hi? treasures consisted of his chest of tools, a good knowledge of hi* trade, honest principles, in dustrious habits, ami twenty-lve copper*.? Sow he is the owner of that elegant mansion, la doing a thriving business, possesses an un broken constitution, and bids fair to live to a jpM?d old age Such is the lot of hundreds and thoasands. who never boasted of wealthy pa rentage - <io into the city, and you will almost inva riably find that the most enterprising men are of poor parentage?men who have had to row against wind and tide?while on the other hand a majority of the descendants of the me di?<crity in talents, live a short time like drones, on the labor of others, and then go down to untimely graves. What a lesson should this be to those who are by all means, either fair or foul, accumu lating treasures for their children. If tha rich would train up their children to regular habits of industry, very many of them would be saved from intemperance, misery, and an untimely end. A Can* or the Old Block.?Among the Kinney expeditionary party ia a y ?uth ouly hi teen years of age. a grandson, we believe, of Daniel Webster, and named after him. How he behaved during the shipwreck is thus told iu a letter from one of the party: The only one who seamed to have no care at all on his mind was little Daniel Webster, who whistled and sang as if he was in his clement, to the great horror of one of the more sober minded. who recommended him toconfino hiui .??elf to saying his prayers and othor exercises appropriate to so solemn an occasion. This conduct, however, wad entirely consistent with his behavior throughout the voyage, for Dau had acquired from hi> boating excursions iu Marsh field harbor, the exneitwetM and freedom from fear from an old salt. Even in the af ternoon previous, a* we were running direct upon St Philip's Keys, he was sitting high upon the cross trees, coolly surveying the dan fess. when., had we struck the rock, he might ave been pitched fifty feet into the water. A woman will cling to the chosen ob ject of her heart like a possum to a gum tree, and you oau t separate her without snapping strings that no art can inend; and leavings portion of her soul upon the upper leather of your affection" 8he will sometimes see some thing to love where other? will see nothing to admire; and when her foodnees is ouce fas tened on a fellow, it sticks like glue and mo lasses in a bushy head of hair.
