There was no cair'age* road in the island, and nobody off-red (in consequence, as I suppose, of the im perfectly-civilised .state of the country) j to bring me in a sedan-chair, which is naturally what 1 should have liked best. A Shetland pony was produced instead. I remembered my Natural History, f re called popular report, and 1 got on the little beast s back, as any other man would have done in my position, placing implicit confidence in smenesr of his feet. And how did he repay that confi dence? Brother Frandis. carry vour mind on from morning till noon. Pic ture a how ling wilderness of grass and bog bounded by low stony hills.

Ask me to take any thing you like except an*interest in the Doncaster raefts. Ask I me to look at anything you likft except ? an assemblage of people all anintated by feelings ofa friendly and admiring nature towards the horse. You are a remarka bly well-informed man. Jbaxe anff yo-jf will sensibly add to the many obli gations which Thomas Idle is proud to owe to Francis Goodchtld. t WEIGHT OF CHARACTER. [ In asalyzing the human powers and faculties and examining the springs of action by which influence is easily exer cised by others in a word, to define what Constitutes character, we often find it a difficult matter to explain. Integrity, industry, skill and many other talents of the first order may be occasionally pos sessed. and yet the Unhappy person may have little influence and consequently but imperfect in most of his undertakings. Th 6 truth pi I apprehend, that he has some prominent delect in his character, which prevents him from having what would otherwise be his proportional in fluence! tn society. The mot important point isto acquire selfocommand. it we ever expect to have any influence over others. We must not ' lose our balance, whenever we meet with any unpleasant circumstance. We are never to expeet :o have every thing go exactly right in world. At best we can only make a distant approxima- 11c men Is in a character, tor influence. is ependeoce aud firmness ; and (mihaps o two qualities are more cunnn >niy mis taken and misunderstood. Independence , consists in a man's thinking for himself; fiimness in acting for himself, according to the dictates pf his fhhscience. There is, a wrong as well as a right way of ex hibiting both of these qualities. They ought rarely, it ever, to b< called into operation upon matters of inditfer f ence or mere expediency: and when they aid* required they usually have much more iolurtce when exercised in a smooth than in t and forbidding manner. It is a great error to imagine that a mao cannot be independent un less be thinks differently from the great mass of mankind upon plain and com mon sense topics, so that he must a!a j be di-puting and taking the opposite side. - He also makes ihe same mistakes es tb ‘ firmness, by oUtroalHy edherimr to mat- j ters of little importance.

Freedom appears to a young man as the brightest star in the firmament of his existence, and is never lost eight of until the goal for which he ! .has been so long traveling, is at length ! reached. When the mind and Ihc spirit | are young, the season of manhood is re- j iected with a biightnera from the future , which nothing can dim hut its cold re- ’ ality. The busy world is stretched out i before our boyhood like the exhibition ut mechanical automata; w behold the merchant accunutating wealth, the scholar planting his foot on the summit of the temple of fame, the warrier twin ing bis biow with tha laurel wreath, and we yearn to struggle wnb them for the supremacy. In the distance we see no thing but the most prominent part of the picture—ihe anguish of disappointment is hidden from our view; we see not the pale check of neglected merit, or the broken spirit of unfortunate genius, or (he sufferings of real worth. But we gaze not long, for tha season of youth passes away like a moonbeam from the will water, or like a dew-drop f,<vn a rose in June, or an hour in the circle of friendship. Youth passes away, and we find ourselves in the midst of that great theatre upon which we have*o long gazed with interest. The paternal hoods which in funding have upheld as a* broken, and we sup into the crod with no guide but our conscience In carry os through the intricate wind age of" the path of human Klk^ Beauties of the perspective fyafe ran asbed; the merchant’s- wealth has fur* rovrfd his cheek, the acquirement* of the scholar were purchased at the pace of his health; and the garland *d the ? conqueror is fastened upon his brow wit# £ a thorn, the rankling cm which shall give i him no rest this side the grave.

The , :encua shown that, in 1855, two men married, in this state, at 85, while thir teen gills took to nuptial obiigationsfal, Jh e precocious period of thiiteen year# Jifage, seventy at fourteen, two hundred and forty-nine ai fifteen, and nearly tav •|*n hundred ai sixteen. Four boys mar ked at fifteen—one being picked up by a female infant of a year leas, one by n mature woman of his own age, one by a-- maiden of twenty-two, and the other by " a spinster who had lived a twelvemonth longer. Early marriages, therefore, am hot such novelties, here, as some Im agine. They are all the better tar the male part of population, particularly, as it avoids Ihe necessity of,, their saying, in later years, as Hottngbroke dnai JR li Swift: ‘The love that I was wont to scatter with some profusion on an en tire s-x is how devoted to a single ob ject.” But Bplingbroke was disingenu ous, unfortunately. IwpoßTAvt Legal Decision.—ln the case of the Commonwealth vs. McAllis ter and Hess, recently carried to tbe Su preme Court of P. nnsyhsnia on a writ , of error to the Common Pleas of Lancas ter. count}*, it was decided that “when . an admiuirtrator or trustee depositee funds in his own name in a bank or sav ings institution which fails, tbeloaesbaV fall upon, him and not upon the cestui. que trust.” Tbe court held that *'lbe liability of an administrator or tnietee for funds lost by Ike faikre of tbe bank or institution in which they have been , deposited does not depend upon the good . faith, or prudence, or judgment with which he may have acted, nor upon the fact that he has deposited his funds in the same place.
