our hero, Will Sutton, had to the coon
try. He waa young, and withal an
honest and ingenious youth, of a mild
and gentle temper, and but little skill
cd in the intrigue and deception so cur
rent in the world, and which his hasty
transit from the shackles of appren
ticeship to the post ri publisher and
an editor, had allowed him no time to
shake hands.. Flattered by the blaze
of what looked like the openiog of a
splendid prospect, he, soon after he en
tered on his new duties, relieved the
original proprietors of their burden,
and assumed the responsibility cf the
concern himself. - .
To become popular, in other words
to please every one, is, perhaps, the
first aim and the freshest hope of eve
ry inexperienced and virtuous mind.
It was so beautiful in theory, and the
read appears at first so plain and easy,
that he never dreams of difficulty in
succeeding in the practice. -Will de

This was the first move that honest
Will saw through, which staggered his
faith and weakened ma credulity.
He rubbed his eyea and looked at it
a moment, then concluded sagely, if I

are broad and palpable, and who can
not deceive others, I may still accom

would at least eventually please ma
jority of the people if he could not sue

Even in this, however, be was unfor
tunately disappointed f, election timet
Came 00 1 there were two candidates
for governor, and Sutton was put com
nletety at his wits end. He knew nei
ther f the candidates to the matter
of their politics, as they were both
represented to be plain, honest, ster
ling patriots, he could not conjure up
an objection, and umh parties deman
ded his exclusive assistance. What
was to be doner lie stood neutral
little while, until he found himself ra
pidly going out of favor with both par
ties. The crisis demanded a change
of policy. He accordingly made a
bold push, and sided with the strongest
party, consequently he broke with all
the others, made a few warm friends,
and very many bitter enemies. Will
saw now the blighting ef all his pros
pects 1 he did nrt change his resolution
however, but confined his hopes to the
pleasing of the party whose cause he
espoused. Surely, he thought, as he
sighed over thete vicissitudes, I shall
keep these for whom 1 have made this
great sacrifice, in my interests, and en
sure thrir good will.
But the time now drew nigh, when,
to please his creditors, it was necessa
ry to collect all the money due from
his customers. He owed for paper,
and ink, and rent, and types, and press j
and these must be paid for. 1 he eel
lector was rigged off, snd sent on th

with about ten per cent on his accounts
and with the news that Messrs. A. IS

( Alas' said Will, as he sat down
in his office door, in utter desponden

mortification. In striving to please al
I have offended all." Ilut honest Wil

Being one of those entiabte young
men who have "every qualification for

eagerly seized on as a proper victim of the

ry few houses indeed are opened to a ret
ular ball, or even to an early dance,' in
which there is not a daughter or a niece
to be disposed of. The money lavished
on gaudy decorations, snups. wild fowls,
ices and Champaign, is therefore merely
put out at usance to be returned in a good
settlement; insomuch, that. the more ap
parently wanton the profusion, the closer
may be deemed the calculation ; seeming
