The life of man is far from being luirg in dura- tion. A few fleeting years slide away, and the pe- riod of human existence terminates. It tacretorc bticoiues necessary for us to employ ourselves in the most useful, virtuous and agreeable manner.— I know it is true that numbers exclaim, time is short; and in the absence of an opportunity to per- form much, sink into despondency and accomplish nothing. Those who act under \the conviction of this scutuneut, should pau.-cand leliet-:. Let them , lemember that the most magnificent and stupen- dous performances of art owe their origin to the application and perseveiunce of industry; that the mightiest enterprises are carried (inward by the j assistance of individuals, feeble when separated, but powerful in union. No one should wait , until he is capable qf achieving some, gifat exploit. i Perhaps the sleep of death may close his eyes be- fore a seasonable time is presented. Although many languish under a sense of their own insufli- oiency, yet a far greater number consider the pass- ing moments as tedious and would hail with grate- fulness its swifter progress. The lover, who sighs his impatience to the breeze, would willingly suf- fer a blank in existence to have his hopes realized. The hero who seeks for glory amid the ensanguin- ed scenes of the conflict, would joyfully.f.irego the loss of years to be decked with the laurel of tho victor. Enrol_the name of the politician high in the record of Fame, and he would barter half the period of his life away as a compensation. , These imaginations and desires introduce unhappiness in- to the world. The application of a safe and easy corrective may not be improper. To those who rind time tedious in its course, I would ofFerthe few following suggestions. By exercising yourselves in the performance of virtuous actions, you will insure quietness to the conscience. To be busied in instructing the orphan and relieving the distres- sed ; to soften the wild traits of nature and cherish the animating spirit of philanthropy, are actions dignified in themselves, and not unbecoming the greatest of men. A frequent intercourse with Heaven will impart a substance to hope, and awa- ken the finest emotions of the soul; it will more- over affect your destiny in a world beyond mortal- ity. When you retire from the turmoils of busi- ness to the domestic circle, or seek a retreat amid the inviting shades of solitude from the restraint and oppressions which fashionable life imposes, nothing can be more gratifying, attended _ygith more utility or in stricter consonance with th'e obli- gations of moral duty, than to improve and culti- vate the faculties of the intellect. When igno- rance is permitted to overspread the soul and hold its fastnesses there, it presents a dreary and deso- late region : some sweet flowers may grow up and flourish for a short while, but they will soon with- er and die amid the pestilential ruin. If the men- tal endowments \are exercised and improved, and the seeds of useful knowledge,scattered in proper season, they will spring up and blossom, and the harvest will yield to its possessor a liberal reward. If an impulse is communicated ro genius, \and the fires of'science kindled within the bosom, it will appear like the illumination of an embellished gal- lery or the ' polished marble of the quarry,' lumin- ous and attracting. Education guides the imagin- ation, directs the judgment, and administers food to the intellectual craving. As it is not in the na- ture of the mind to endure a continued state of exercise without experiencing fatigue, the intro- duction of innocent amusements become highly profitable. Those which are commendable have a tendency to engender agreeable'associations, in- vigorate the virtuous affections, and cherish the fi- ... - . ,. , , i,„, „r.i „ * ., .,.,. r ., . . ,. „„• , I.. | by the proport on which such number ot days s ner sensibilities of the heart—ought surely to hold h ^ nr (n ' th ( rtv „ J the first' place in our estimation. To neglect op- portunities for improvement, and suffer life to glide away without even leflecting upon the object of our existence, or the duties which devolve upon us as rational and civilized beings, is certainly crim- inal and unbecoming the dignity of our nature. To the generous youth, literature oflFeis induce- ments and allurements sufficient to engage him with ardor in its pursuits. Well he knows, that, if tlieblasts of detraction rage, or the clouds of misfortune thicken around htm, he can retire to the company of those illustrious dead.who have left their genius, their counsels and their virtues upon earth as splendid memorials of their former greatnes, and theie receive instruction and con- solation. But some run into an opposite extreme, and imagine that every moment not employed in literary researches is idly spent. Their pleasure consists in analyzing deep propositions, and de- ducing truth from syllogistical reasonings. By these means, although life may roll innocently and uninterruptedly forward, yet such an application of their intellectual poweis can tend but very re- motely towards the melioration of mankind or the increase of their happiness in this state of being. These philosophers find no time to spare for the improvement of social intercourse, or the allevia- tion of those multiplied suiferings which so fre- quently overcloud domestic enjoyments. Their exertions may preserve the arts and sciences in their vigor, and cause them to flourish ; but a little reflection bestowed upon this subject, will soon show their inutility when unsupported by the har- monizing and conciliating influences of refined society. 1 would advise each one to pursue such a course through tbe chequered scenery of his being, as will yield him real happiness here, and insure it here- after. Literary attainments associated with a vir- tuous life and engaging manners, never fail to shed a halo round the evening of existence. This sub- ject is one of deep interest—one upon which yonth ought to bestow some meditation. In what man- ner we intend to occupy our time, is an important inquiry. Th e line of future conduct should be marked out while there is a rising warmth and en- ergy kindling among the faculties of-the soul. I earnestly press the subject upon the attention of my\ readers. It possesses a claim, reaspnable in itself, and well worthy of their consideration. Should it be carelessly passed, over, the Visiter is not to blame ; he has laid tho matter before them, and now leaves it to their election. He would, how- ever, before dropping his pen, just add in support of pre-, ious remarks, the following verse from a beautiful pdet— '• Since beauty then to time must bow, And age deform tJie fairest brow, Let brighter charms be yours; The rirluous mind embalmed in (ruth, Shall bloom in evedegting youth, While time himself endures.\ N. iv: th From the Ontario Messenger. THE REVISED STATUTES—No. VI. The second chapter of the second part, treats of the title to real property -by descent. The rules of descent, which now do not go beyond nephews, are extended to the descendants of brothers and sisters of the father of the intestate, and-\of his mo- ther. If the inte.8ta.te leave a mother and a bro- ther or sister, or descendants of them, the inherit- ance goes to the mother during life, and the re- version to the brother or sister, or their descend- ants. If there be a mother and no brother or sis- ter, or descendants of tbem, the inheritance goes to the mother in fee. Iu case of the intestate be.- ing illegitimate and having no descendants, the in- heritance passes to his mother, if she be4iviug; if dead, to her relatives. Illegjtim'att children £nd relatives, can in no case inherit Fersnns capa- ble of inheriting are not to be •precluded -by the alienism of their ancestors. The law of advance- ment, is extended to personal as well as real prop- erty, and the wliole is to bo reckoned as real es- tate, a-hd is to bo estimated in ascertaining the por- J j 60 *'/ ™ P™f er to / eraa ' tion of real property to which a child is to be euti-' \ AtU \\\* ' tied. The third chapter of. the second part relates to the proof and recording of conveyances, and can- celling mortgages. The term Conveyances in- cludes mortgages, nnd every other species of in- struments by which the title to real property can be affected, except wills, leases for a term not ex- ceeding three years and executory contracts. The same rules, with respect to the effect of recording, will therefore hereafter apply to mortgages as t ) deeds. Subscribing witnesses are to state Mci> places of residence, which is to be inserted in the certificate of proof. Witnesses to deeds may be compelled to appear before certain officers, to prove them, and are to be committed until they answer. CVtificates of proof or acknowledge- ments are not to be conclusive, but may be rebut- t'(' cud if >ho 'vit-.e^s wa« intere<o.1 or iuco m .,e- 1. Tho certificates names of the wil- ot residence and the substance of llieir t(*tiui.uiy. H illwiit these re- .nuisites the rirtijieate inndd bi mid. Certificates that a moitgage is sati<tied. are to be acknowledg- ed or proved in the Kime manner as deeds ; and are to be recorded at lull length : and in the record of the mortgage a minute is to lie made referring to tin- record of the discharge. If all the witness- es to a conveyance be dead, it may be proved, us at law, before certain officers, and if deposited withthe county clerk, become-, constructive notice to subsequent puichasers. Power of attorney to convey land, and executory contracts for the sale of laud, may be recorded, on being proved and ac- knowledged, with the like effect as deeds, hut their recording is not required. And a letter of attorney that has been recorded, can not be revo- without recording the instrument of revoca- The recording an assignment of a mortgage is not notice, so as to invalidate payments made to the mortgagee. In Albany, Ulster, Sullivan, Her- kimer. Dutchess, Columbia, Delaware and Sche- nectady counties, leases for life or lives, or for years, need not be recorded. The fourth chapter treats of the title to personal property in certain cases. The first title, relating to limited partnerships, contains no new provis- ions of importance. The second title relates to promissory notes and bills of exchange. Notes payable to the order of the maker or of a fictitious name, if negotiated by the maker, have the same validity as notes paya- ble to hearer. Persons within this state can not be chawed for, acceptances of bills, unless the accept- ance is in writing ; and if made on any other pa- per than the bill itself, it is not binding, except in favor of a person who has seen it, and on the faith of it has received the bill for a valuable considera- tion : but a previous unconditional promise- in writing to accept a bill, is to be deemed an ac- ceptance in favor of a person receiving upon the faith of such promise, a written acceptance on request, is to be deemed a refusal to accept. A person to whom a bill is presented for acceptance, who shall destroy it, or refuse to return it within twenty-four hours, ac- cepted or non-accepted, is to be deemed to have accepted. The rate of damages to lie paid on pro test for non-payment of bills of exchange drawn npoii any person at any place in Europe, is to be ten Allars upon \the hundred, on the amount of the bill; which is to be paid in lieu of interest and all charges incurred previous to giving notice of non- payment, bat interest is to be recovered on the principal and damages, from the time of demand of payment. If the bill is payable in dollars and cents, tbe amount due is to be ascertained without reference to any rate of exchange, but if payable in a foreign currency, the amount due is to be de- termined by the rate of exchange, or the value of such .foreign currency at the time of demand of payment. The same rate of damages is to be al- lowed on the protest of a bill for non-acceptance, and interest is to be recovered on the total amount of the principal sum and the damages from the time of giving notice of non-acceptance. The damages allowed by this title shall be recovered only by the holder of a bill who has paid a \ alua- ble consideration for it The third title relates to the interest of money. Promissory notes or bills of exchange in the hands of a bolder receiving the •same for a valuable con- sideration, without notice that such bill or note had been given upon a usurious contract, are not to be affected by the usury. A borrower is entitled to file lus bill in equity for the discovery of a usurious contract, without paying or depositing the princi- pal sum, as a condition of obtaining relief. \ Tor the purpose of calculating interest, a month shall be considered the twelfth part of a year and as consisting of thirty days, and interest for any num- ber of days less than a month shall be estimated • ' :..._..:_:.!..._:.... ' \\ hail bear to thirty. The fourth title treats of the accumulation of personal property and of expectant estates in such property. The absolute ownership of personal property can not be suspended for a longer period than until the termination of not more than two lives in being. Limitations on future interests in pergonal property, are in all other respects to be subject to the same rules as are prescribed in rela- tion to future estates in land*. Accumulations of the interest of money, or other profits of personal property, must terminate at the expiration of the minority of the infants for whose benefit they are directed. The nuiftovs accumulated may be taken under the order of the Chancellor, for tho support or education of the infant. All other directions for accumulations, than such as are allowed by this title, are void. Chapter five of the second part relates to title to property real and personal, transmitted or ac- quired by special provisions of law : and the first title is concerning the assignment of estates of non- resident, absconding, insolvent, orimprisoned debt- ors, and consists of eight articles, in which the va- rious and complicated laws on these subjects are collected, simplified and arranged in their natural order ; with numerous alterations in the details, of which those only will be noticed which involve some prinriple. Provision is made for trying a claim to property attached, by the sheriff and a jury, and the cases specified in which he is to detain it notwithstand- ing a verdict for the claimant. In case of the seiz- ure of a vessel, or of any share in her, proceed- ings may be had to obtain her release, promptly, of for her sale, in case of no claim being interpo- sed. Notices in cases of non-resident debtors, are to be for nine months instead of a year. After ap- plication for an attachment, any other creditor may file a specification of his demand, with the judge, and shall therefore be entitled to all the rights of an attaching creditor. If a second or other attach- ment be issued by any other judge, return is to he made to the judge who issued the first, and all tho papers are to be transmitted to him : the proceed- ings are to be the same as if such attachment had been issued by the officer who issued the first war- rant, and the creditors are to have the same rights. Assignees of the person proceeded against, and persons who may have received payments from him, may contest the fact of his being absconding, concealed, or non-resident; whenever contested either by them or the debtor, the question may be tried by a jury. If the proceedings be discharged by tbe debtor's giving a bond, a suit must be brought on it by the creditors within six months. Tr-ustees of the debtor are to be appointed within three .months after the expiration of the time lim- ited for his appearance, and if not appointed with- in that time, the attachment is thereby cancelled. The appointment oftrustees is to be recorded. If the debtor die or become insane before the time lim- ited forJjiB appearance, the proceedings are to be stayed, and the propejfty given to his representa- tives ; if he diet after that time, the proceedings are to continue. Sheriffs may be compelled by attachment to -return attachments. The proceed- ings maybe removed at any time into the Supreme Court, by certiorari,-who are.to proceed thereon, or may remit the matter to the same or any other officer having jurisdiction. The sureties in bonds .offered by the debtor, may be required to justify in, the same manner as bail in actions. A warrant under this article supersedes an attachment issued underthe poor laws. ,„ The-second article relates to attachments against debtors confined by crimes, and authorizes similar .proceedings, as those prescribed in the first article, .against debtors imprisoned in the States Prison for any term less than life, and against debtors impris- oned in a county jail for any term more than one year. After paying the debts, tbe Trustees may apply the surplus to the support of therfiimilv of the debtor or the education of his children, until his discharge, when the property in their hands is to be delivered to him. Connected with this sub- that by Title 7 of Chap. I, of the 4th part, every person injured by the commission of a felony, for which the offender shall be imprisoned in the State Prison, is to be deemed a creditor under the provisions nf this ar- ticle, and the amount of bis damages are to be as- certained by a suit brought by him against the trus- tees of the offender's'estate. The third article relates to voluntary assignments made by an insolvent in conjunction with credit- ors to two thirds the amount of his debts. Cred- itors may re-piire a hearing before a jury, in all cases. If it appears that -since swearing to his pe- tition, the insolvent hns collected any debts, or transferred any property, before he can receive a dischnrge, he is to pay the amount thereof, except such as were necessarily expended for the support of htnjs<'!i\'>r family. If it shall appear, that after this h'rtich has taken effect as a law, the debtor, knowing his insolvency, or i.i contemplation nf it, or of his petiti\ning 1,'as mu-'> any transfer of :-.'} pioperty, or confessed a judnrrr.,, security, vyith a view to give a n»' ' antecedent debt to any creditor,^ t-tled to a discharge.
