of my age, To speak in public on the stage. One of his schoolfellows has a vivid remembrance of Horace's reciting this piece before the whole school in Londonderry, before he was old enough to utter t some boys when they had gained the right to get above him, declined the honor, because it hurt Horace's feelings so. He was the pet of the school. Those whom he used to excel most signally liked hr day, this informant remembers, the clergyman of Londonderry, who had heard glowing accounts of Horace's feats at school, took him on his lap in the field, questioned him a long time, tried to puzzlewas of service to Horace in various ways, and he is remembered by the family with gratitude. To Horace's brother he once gave a sheep and a load of hay to keep it on during the winter, thus adapting and not till they have done their stint are they at liberty to play.

The way to thrive in New Hampshire was to work very hard, keep the store-bill small, stick to the farm, and be no man's security. Of these four things, Horace's father did only one—he worked hard. He was good workman, methodical, skillful, and persevering. But he speculated in lumber, and lost money by it. He was bound, as they say in the country, for another man, and had to pay the money which that thers assert, that the article carried off by the indignant boy was not dresses, but a gallon of rum. But whatever the boy did, or left undone, the reader may imagine that it was to all the family a day of confusion, anguish, and horror. Both of Horace's parents were persons of incorruptible honesty; they had striven hard to place such a calamity as this far from their house; they had never experienced themselves, nor witnessed at their earlier homes, a similar scene; the blow was unexpected; a

The instrument of flagellation was placed in Horace's hand, and he drew off, as though he was going to deal a candle was a luxury now, too expensive to be indulged in. Horace's home was a favorite evening resort for the children of tof the story is, that the stranger looked as if he thought Horace's defender half mad himself; and, to tell the truth, said Suns that warm, illumine, and quicken! The incidents in Horace's life at Westhaven were few, and of the few that did occuere as a wonderful performance, only exceeded, in fact, by Horace's second return to Londonderry a year or two after, when hthe younger of the drowning pair managed, by climbing over Horace, and sousing him completely under the log, to get out. Hoch the busy inhabitants of cities can form little idea. Horace's last year in Westhaven (1825) wore slowly away. He —had

Towards the close of the third day, the oldest apprentices took one of the large black balls with which printers used to dab the ink upon the type, and remarking that in his opinion Horace's hair was of too light a hue for so black an art as that which he had undertaken to learn, applied the ball, well inked, to Horace's head, making four distinct dabs.

ent, and brought upon his friend a variety of satirical observations. Nothing daunted, however, on the arrival of the foreman he stated the case, and endeavored to interest him enough in Horace to give him a trial. It happened that the work for which a man was wanted in the office was the composition of a Polyglot Testament; a kind of work which is extremely difficult and tedious. Several men had tried their hand at it, and, in a few days or a few hours, given it up. The foreman looked at Horace, and Horace looked at the foreman. Horace saw a handsome man (now known to the sporting public as Colonel Porter, editor of the Spirit of the Times.) The foreman beheld a youth who could have gone on the stage, that minute, as Ezekiel Homespun without the alteration of a thread or a hair, and brought down the house by his getting up alone. He no more believed that Ezekiel could set up a page of a Polyglot Testament than that he could construct a chronometer. However, partly to oblige Hora
