1.1 ?., EVENING STAR. Milto* i* ms ow* A.5D iji om Agb?There a*e mysteries in h? history. The apparent is not alwaya a true indication of the real state of thinj;*. Tho contradiction and inconsisten cies to be found in the annals of men nnd na tions, hare very appropriately >?ocn compared to the eddies and windings that are seen in the current of a great stream as it fiowii on to its ocelli homo. The aaino objcct* looked At frcm a new po'nt of observation, has an alto gether different appearance. So it often i? with those whose genius and acts havo made thein historical. In the light of new facta, their character* are changed in our eyes. Wo then -eek to correct our judgment, and praise or censure as justice demands. In his own time, Milton whs considered a writer _of sedi tion ; in-ours, his name stands pre-eminent as one of the noblest champions of Freedom; and, Coleridge has finely tiaid, " strodo so far in advance of his age as to dwarf himself in the distuiice," now ^hincs with full-orbed bright ness as a star of the first magnitude among the patriots a: d chief* who mingled in the fierce conflict of Old England's hard fought battles for liberty. ilpw to drive a Nail.?In driving a out nail into hard wood, its entrance will be much facilitated by dif ping it into oil, or what will answer nearly as well, wet it with water or saliva. Experienced carpenters are in tho habit of putting a ne.il into the mouth to wet it, before attempting to drive it into hard wood. When a nail is to remain permanently, salt water or saliva is preferable to oil, as the former will rust tho nail and cause it to take a firmer hold- In all cases it is better to in sert a nail so that its widest diameter shall ftand parallel with the grain of the wood. This is generally done in thin boards where tfc? rc is uangcr <>f splitting, but it should al ways be done, even if nailing into a solid piece of timber; for where a rupture does not take place Ly setting the wide pnrt of the nail aof -s the gr".in, yet a slight opening is pro duced near the i.ail. which admits air and n. 'istan Mi hast ins decay around it.?Dot ton Foit. Tan Bor cr the Times.?We like an ac tive boy?one who has the impulse of the age ?of the steamboat in him. A lazy. pioddiDg. snail paced chap, might have got along in tho world fifty years ago, but he don't do for those times. We live in an as-9 of quick ideas; men think quick; oat, sleep, court, marry, and die quick; slow coaches are not tolerated. " Go ahead, if you bum your boiler !" is the motto of every age; :uid h>. euojoed* the best in every line of busies s vfL'j has the most to ,4 do or die'' in ? Strive boy3 to catch the spirit- of tho times; be up and dressed always, not gaping, and -/ut~-irg your eyes, as if you were half asleep, but w'.de awake for whatever may turn up, and y*.u will be somebody before you: time conies to die. Sidr.ej Smith's description of himself in <jt 'kteen hundred and f?rty-four: ?* 1 am seventy-four years of a^e, and being Caron of St. Paul's in Loudon, and a rector cf a parish in the country, my time is dividod equally between towu and country. I am living axong tao best society in the metropo lis and r.t ? a>j in lny circumstances ; in tol erable health. a mild whig, a tolerating church man. a-i 1 much given to talking, laughing atd noise. I dine with the rich in Loudon, and physic tho poor in the country?pacing i'n.-m the .-auces cf Dives to the sores of Lnza rus. I am. upon the whole, a happy man; h ive found the world aa entertaining world, and am thankful to Providence for the pa:t allotted to me in it." Rrsstax Laxgtage ?The Russian language is said to be one of the richest and most beau tifal in the world; it is toft and agreable in found, en I fca- not the defect of being too ef feminate; it contains many words that express the ."aula idea-. If ever a Sclavonic Milton or Saakgpeare ariso, he will find an ineshaus tab e treasure in Lis native tongue wherewith to cxi rets bis thoughts; but at present there is fva?c ly any national literature, owing to the deadening influence of the government. The principal Rus-ian authors aro l'oushkin the poet, Carnmrin. the historian, and Krilwff the writer of fables.?Preslytcrian. CtTThe Pittsburg Gazette states that a few days since a young married lady living in that city accidentally swallowed a cent. It lodged in the throat, and was afterwards forced down into the stor aoh by a physican. The ]Tvccss of pn?ia, it down so inflamed her throat that she was unable to cat anything lor a couple of days. Dr. Williams, with the aid of an instrument of i-eculiar construction, extracted the cent from tier stomach. It was very much discolored. illRlTALS AT PRIM LI PAL HOTELS. Wilier.:*' Hetel?k.a.
