The best way'of sending one's name
To posterity, Cliarle*, is to marry.
Ami here I am willing to own,
(Alter soberly thinking upon it,)
l*,| very much rather be known
Through a beautiful sou, than a sonnet.
Don’t be frightened at querulous storiew,
Bv gossiping grumblers related,
Who urgue that marriage a bore is
Because they’ve known people inis-niilod-
Such fellowa, ifthey Ind their pleasure.
Because some “bad b irgaiua * are made,
Because some “bad Inrgama
Would propose, as a sensible nu
To lay an embargo on trade!
Then, Charles, bid your donbts good bye,
And dismiss all fantastic alarms;
That you ought to have had in your arms,
Some beautiful maiden, God bless her !
Unencumbered with pride or with pelf,
Ofeve.ry true charm the possessor,
And giveu to no fault but yourself!
To Procrastination be deaf—
(A caution which eame from above.)
The scoundrel’s not only “the Thief
Of Time,” hut of Beauty and Love!
Then delay not a moment to win
A prise that is truly worth winning,
Celibacy, Charles, ia a sin
And sadly prolific of sinning.
1 coufd give you a bushel of reasons
For choosing the “double estate ;”
It agrees with all climates nnd seusous,
Though it may be adopted too late.
To one’s parent’s, 'tie (gratefully) due;
Just think wlist a terrible thing
’Twould have been, sir, for me and for you,
If onr$ had neglected the ring!

Then, Charles, be persukded to wed;
For a sensible fellow like you,
It is high time to think of a bed.
And a board and “fix ina” for two.

‘Aye, aye, sir,’ replied tlie second mete.
The yard* were squared in, and tile goud ship
Cyrcus, of Nnuluckel, began to move a little faster
through tbo water. The mate hinted to the cap
tain that probably tlui ship might run over the whale
und asked him if the fore.uii should not be hauled
•Them she blows !’ shouted half a do/.cn voices
at ii, ce. /
‘There ho is, Mr. Fisher about a mile off, wo
will laydown and lower nwny.’
The boats were immediately lowered from the
dnvits into the water, and every man was soon in
his respective place.
•Ifce your pnddlea instead of oars ; do you hear
the other boats ?’ exclaimed the captain at the top
of his vuice.
•Aye, aye, sir,’ was the reply.
I belonged to this boat and nnd tlie honor of steer
ing. it was soon peieepiilile that our boat was
nearest to the whale, tbo other boats consequently
ceased paddling so as not to frighten the whale
which wo were approaching so tapidly.
‘Dick,’ said the captain lo me,‘don’t miss him,
fur lie is nn eighty barrel whale.’
‘Never fear, sir. I replied, taking the head iron
(the harpoon) in my hand, and eyeing the huge
whale us he slowly proceeded through the water
scarcely burying his hump.
We note ulmosl within dart when the captain
whispered In tint men, sc.ize the oars and pull. In
tin instant we were along side.
•Give it to him, Dick,’ roared the captain. Bang
went one iron ; bung went the other.
•Starn all—slam all—stern, you scamps slam !*
cried our elated captain, after having seen the iron
buried to the hitches io the back of the whale.
•Come after mo my boys.’
•Aye, aye, sir;’ 1 replied, going aft, seizing the
line which was around the logger-bead in the stern
of the boat.
Tlie Cnptain went forward preparing to use the
deadly lance ns the two other boatscame up with
the intention of also fastening. The whale which
a few minutes before was so quiet, now appeared
more like nn enraged bullock ; his flukes (i. e. tail)
was often high in the air, every joint was cracking,
m iking u sound similar to the snapping of h hum
dred whips ; nnd then his head would appear sever
al feel out of the water, which, together with his
formidable jaws and frightful teeth, plainly showed
his strength and what it was in his power to do.
The second mate’s boat approaching the whale, and
a young man by the name ol Hale was standing up
ready lo dart the irons, but the whale caught sight
of the boat and instantly inode for it with his mouth
open. Yet Hale was nothing daunted, but he dart
ed the irons, one after another, and then jumped
overboard. It was all that saved him, for the jaws
of the whale came down on the very spot where he
Mad stood, and with so much power that the head of
the boat was billeu off. He swam to our boat evi
dently grnteful fur having escaped. Air. Fisher
now pulled up.
•Be careful how you go on that whale, exclaimed
the Captain, much chagrined at the catastrophe
which lie had just witnessed.
The mate, however was not allowed lo approach
htswliuluship, for he politeiy gave the blow with his
flukes, which knocked tlie bottom in, and the crew
some rods from the boat in company with some
whaling geur, such us hurpuons, lancets, wail pole,
•By George !’ roared the Captain, Hussey, ‘two
boats sloven and tlie wltalo not liuving received a
‘Haul line, haul line, I wii! now see what we can
do. Bow the line Hale, and sit down upon the
thwart,’said lie to (he young man who hud been
tuken into our boat,and was standing up by his side.
But he disregarded llio Captain’s Older, and still re
mained standing. The Cuptain was in the act of
darting a lance when the whale turned upon us.
‘Slain—slum—starn—stamalli latte the har
poon oar Hale, and starn !’ lie exclaimed.
As Hale was about obeying this order the whale
rolled under the how of the boat, and striking it at
the same time with his jaw, so that by the collision
he lost his balance and fell overboard directly into
the whole's jaw*! The whale lifted his head out
of the water, showing the young man firmly in lus
mouth, as if in mockery of all our attempts to cup
lure him, and then disappeared with his victim.
How long the wlmle was out of sight [ cannot
tell, ina few seconds, however, Hale’s hat came
and floated upon the surface, and about a minute af
tor. Hale himself nppoared !
‘Pull me iu for Heaven’s sake,’ he exclaimed, ‘1
have been in tho whale’s jaws!’
We soon had him ill the boat ; his scalp was
hanging by u portion of the skin, ut the buck of his
head ; lie could not speak ; hut uftcr a time lie in
formed ns that he was not injured elsewhere.
•Where’s the whule,’ oxclnimed the captain.
‘Bl.v t the whale,* I almost exclaimed.
‘There he is, sir,’ answered one of tlie men
pointing it out.
‘Well, haul line, we will haul up close io him and
then cut, for Hale must bo injured more seriously
than perhaps we are awurc of.
We were accordingly hauled up, when the whule
turned flukes and disappeared.
‘Cut lino, it is folly to hold on any longer,' said
The line was cut and we were soon along side
of the ship. Httle was hoisted up in the bout and
carried into the cabin, where lie was examined by
the Capluin and rnyself. Oil moving a portion of
his clothes several frightful wounds were discover
ed, one of which in the lower extremity of his ho
dy, ivae so large that a portion of tlie intestines
were hanging out. There were others also upon
his thighs. These were nil sewed up. and after
being properly bandaged, ho was placed in one ol
the berths. The sloven boats were picked up j
others immediately rigged and put in order, while
men were sent to the inast heads (with whnt hearts
i will not pretend to say,) to keep a look out for the
whale that had cos: us so much trouble.
•I’retty, how-do.yon do,' said the Captain lo the
mule, who till now hud been Very busy in making
the changes in tlie bonts. ‘Two bouts knocked in

ANECDOTE OF CHIEF JUSTICE MAR

nobody doubts their validity ; and with that impres.
son wc proceed to givo a few of the seemingly un.
important regulations to which wo nllude :—
Have tho courage lo discharge a debt whfie you
have got the money in your pocket.
Have thccourago to do without that which you
do not need, however much you may udmire it.
Have tiie eournge to speak your mind when it is
necessary that you should do so, und lo hold your
longue when it is better that you should be silent.
■ Have thecourage to spenk to a poor friend inn
seedy coat, even in tho street, and when a rich ono

Have the courage to set down every penny you
spend, <i«d add it up weekly.
Have the courage lo pass your host’s lackey at
the door, witirout giving him a shilling when you
know you cannot afford it—und, what is more, that
the mail lias not earned it.
Have the courage to own that you arc poor, and
you disarm poverty of her sharpest sting.
Have the courage to laugh at your personal de
fects, and the world will be deprived of that pleas
ure, by being reminded of their own.
Have (he courage to admit that you have been in
the wrong, and you will remove the fact from
the mind of others, putting a desirable impression
in the luce of nn unfavorable one.
[lave tho courage to udhere to a first resolution
when you cannot change it for a belter ; and to
abandon it at the eleventh hour, upon conviction.
Have tlie courage to make a will, and wliut is !
more a just one.
Have the courage to face a difficulty, lest it kick
you harder than you bargain for. Difficulties, like
thieves, often disappear at a glance.
Have the courage to leave n convivial party at a
proper hour for so doing, however great the sacri
fice; and stay away from one, upon the slightest
grounds for objection, however greul the temptation
Have die courage tn plnce n poor man at your
table, although a rich one he present, and to show
equal courtesy to both; and to deny vour house to
those whose qualities you condemn, whatever be
their character and station.
IIuvo the courage to dunce with ugly people—if
you dance at all; nnd to decline dancing if you
dislike the performance, or cannot accomplish it
to your satisfaction.
Huve tiie courage «t avoid accommodation bills,
however badly you want money; and to decline
pecuniary assistance from your dearest friend.
Have the courage tn shut your eyes al the pros,
pect of large profits, and to be content with small
Have the courage to tell a man why you will
not lend him your money ; he will respect you more
than if you tell him you can’t.
Have the courage in cut the most agreeable ac
quaintance you possess, when he convinces you
that he lacks principle. “ A friend should hear
itlt a friend’s infirmities’—not his vices.
Have thecourage to show your preference for
honesty, in whatever guise it appears; and your
contempt for vice, surrounded by attractions.
Have the coutnge lo wear yam* old garments
till you can pay for new ones.
Have the courage to thrust your legs down be-
liveen the sheets in cold weather ; and lu shave
every day before breakfast.
Have tlie courage lo puss the bottfi: without filling
vour own glass, when you huve reasons for so doing;
and to laugh at those wlm urge you to the contrary.
Have courage to wear thick limits in winter, and
to insist upon your n ife and daughters doing the
Have courage to review your own conduct—to
condemn it where you detect faults—to amend it
to the best of your ability—to make good resolves
for your future guidance, and lo keep them.
Have the courage to decline playing at cards
for money. « hen “money is an object,” or to ceuso
playing when your losses amount to as much as
you can afibrd to loose.
Have the courage to acknowledge ignorance of
uny kind ; every body will immediately doubt you,
an I give you mure credit titan any false pretensions
Have (lie courage to prefer propriety to fashion
—one is but the abuse of the other.
Have the courage to liston to your wife when you
should do so. and not to listen to her when you
should not. (This applies to husbands.)
Have the courage to provide a frugal dinner for
u friend, whom you “delight to honor,” and when
yon cannot nflbrtl them wine to offer them porter.
Have the courage lo demand your lawyer’s bill
—the sooner the better; to pay it by all musns;
and not to omploy him again if you can help it.
