Successful Men. Amos Lawrence said
when asked for advice : "Young meu,basc
all your actions upon a principle of right,
preserve your integrity of character, and in
doing this never reckon the cost," A. T
Stewart, the merchant prince of New York,
says: "No abilities, however splendid, can
command success without intense labor and
persevering application." Rothchilds as
cribed success to the following rules: "Be
an off-handed man ; make a bargain at once.
Never have anything to do with an unlucky
man or plan, Be cautious and bold." Ed.
ward Everett said : "The world estimate
men by their success. in life, and success is,
by general consent; evidence of superiority."

Chaiema ilAB80x.-Wamust compii
ment our friend, G.L.S Mabson, for the abili
ty shown in presiding at the meeting on
Tuesday night, at the City Hall. The unu
sually stormy elements of two contending
factions were kept well In hand by the
tact and skill of Mr. Mabson. His speech
was forcible, to the point and evinced that
earnestness each true Republican. rrust feel
at the present crisis in the political affairs
of the State. The logic and clearness of
Mr. Hanson's statements compared with the
vulgar personality of Price, Miller and other
whitewashed Democrats, was noticed by all.
The remarks of Chairman Mabson on taking
his seat, elicited much applause, and did
much to secure the victory we have noticed
elsewhere. The treatment of deserting office-holders,
like Mr. Miller arid the other
men who defy the powers that be, met
with high compliments from men Long ex
perienced in managing popular assemblies.
NooNDAY.p-Noon, these summer days, is
almost turned into night; at least upon cots
and hammocks, and divans everywhere can
be found the sleeper, snoring away -as quietly
as if old Sol was casting his sickening rays
upon the shaved headed mandariaus of the
Celestial empire, and this section of the
vineyard waB yet clothed in the murky man
tle of old Nox. It is a good idea, some
people eay those who indulge in the habit.
The early morning is hot and oppressive
and unfit for that relaxation of the system
required by sleep. Better to get up early,
and nap before dinner. And we take this
viewr as correct, as we remember some
rhymer, (and poets, like newspapers, are al
always correct), somewhere says :
" The weary plowman's lazy length
DieB in the shadow narrow,
1 That clings about ,the haystack foot
' Careless as a guarded sparrow.
Ob, peaceiul hour of summer Noon !
Lite lias its midnight slumber ;
Shall it have no noon-day rest for us
When cares shall cease to cumber?"
There was quite a sensation created on
Front street, yesterday, by a very distingua
and beautiful young lady, who, with the ut
most moncbalance and indifference to sur
roundings, walked along, holding in the
dainty fingers of her left hand a rare speci
men of peach, that had doubtless been left
hanging upon its parent stem,
Until ruby and amber had met
On the cheek that lay next to the sun.
With a delicately chased silver fruit knife,
she dexterously removed the peeling iu one
long, curling piece ; then stopping sudden
ly, she actuated, doubtless, by some super
stition, which had been imbibed in the nur
sery, and expecting to see the initials of her
lover gracefully tossed it over her head,
and turning, ran to see the result. To her
amazement, and to the wonder of the gap
ing multitude, the peeling had formed the
following letters aud figures upou the side
walk : "N. C. R. & P. E. A.," which, after
some difficulty, was interpreted to mean,

the War," by Gen. Henry Lee, . thoroughly
revised and correted by Gen. R. E. Lee who
has added, also, an entirely new biography
of his father, prepared by him from private
and personal materials never before used.
It will be a large and handsome octavo
volume, illustrated by new steel portraits of
Gen, Henry Lee and Gen. Nathaniel Greene,
bcaiitiful steel engravings of "Marion cross-
Jng thePeedef,': and the "Surrender of
Cornwallis';" and five original maps and
plans. Our readers need not be told that
this is a wjak of great interest and value.
It is the standard history of military opera
tions at the South during the revolutionary
war, and as such is a book which every
reading: man sliould possess ; but its inter

Gen. Robert E. Lee's thorough revision and

We are accustomed to hear the Mexican

ausiry ana enugntenment ; but the Mexican
girl, of whom we find an account in a Guad

our own young women and young men of
more mature age. That paper says ;
"The Senorita Carlotta Ferro, who is only
sixteen years of age, performs in Quintupan
the following employments with the great

of them having been highly eulogized by
the political chief of the Ninth Canton when
he made an official visit to that point:
She is preceptress of the school of that
town, and is remarkably successful in the
education of young ladies.
She is clerk of the court aud secretary of
the council, and is remarkable for the admi
rable order in which she keeps the archives,
in the collection of laws, andot all the other
business in her charge.

In the Tribune's London correspondence
we find the following :
m The London papers are considerably ob
liged to Mr. Goldwin Smith for supplying
them with some sort of answer to the just
accusation that no one of them has printed
the speech of Mr. Sumner, which all of
them joined in misrepresenting. Mr.
Smith's answer was better ' than none. Still
it was telt to "be very weaW, so one of them
has now produced a second. The speech, it
says, was printed here a pamphlet ferm,
; and "widely circulated'' It is true a pam
phlet edition was printed in London, but it
was issued by an American, not by an En
glish house. Upon seeing the, statement
that it had been "widely circulated," I had
the curiosity to askrMr. Stevens how many
copies he had disposed ot It was publish
ed at a shilling about 35 cents currency.
Mr; Stevens writes me that it certainly was
"widely circulated" in oncfcscnse, inasmuch
as he sent a copy to nearly every town in
threat Britain and Ireland where a paper is
published. The country press had 165 cop
ies, the London papers 20, and 310 were
sold. In all, there have been circulated
just five less than 5Q0 copies. Of leading
articles which put into Mv. Sumner's mouth
what he never dreamed -of saying, there
have been who 1 knows how many millions
of copies distributed ?
The Pensacola Observcr says; 44 Several
families of old residents and natives of this
city who left here prior to the war and made
