Au ancient and distinguished indi vidual writes: "I owe my wealth and elevation to the. neglect with whicb I used to be treated by the proud. It was a real benefit, though not so intended. It awakened a zeal which did its duty, and was crowned with success. I detennined, if this neglect was owing to my want of learnrng, I would be studiOus and acquire it. I detennined, if i was owing to my poverty, I wonld aceumnlate property; if extreme vigilance industry, pruileuce and self denia) wonld do it (which will not always). 1 determined, if it was owing to my manners, I wouJd bo more circnmspect. I was anxious, also, to show those who had so treated me that I was undeserving sueh coldness. I was also wanned by a desire that the proud should see me on a levei with, orelevated above, themselves. And I was resolved, above all things, never to lose the consolation of being conscious of not deserving the hauteur wbich they displayed to me." - New York Ledger.
