Excerpt from Western Wanderings, or a Pleasure Tour in the Canadas, Vol. 2 of 2So would an Oxonian to be told that Woodstock, which stands on undulating ground, on a gravelly soil, and is a completely rural, straggling place, like a large village with a number of gentlemen's houses in it, - is the county town of the county of Oxford. It contains six churches, a gaol, a court-house, a grammar-school, a mechanics' institute, some mills, and boasts of a newspaper edited by one of the Vansittart family. A number of gentle men's families are settled in and about Woodstock, which makes the society particularly pleasant. Few have, however, made the same progress towards the attainment of wealth as their less educated fellow countrymen, and many have, unhappily, by their want of knowledge and perseverance, rather decreased than added to their possessions, while. Some have been totally ruined. Very few young men of education accustomed to the world can endure a real backwoods life. Many romantic youths picture to themselves a life in the forest, away from the busy world, as the na plus ultra of enjoy ment, peace, and happiness, but, alas! Many, without even going very far from the haunts of men, find them selves so solitary and sad, that they are tempted to purchase present satisfaction at the expense of their future happiness and prosperity by intoxication, often in the society of those infinitely their inferiors in station and knowledge. Too many are the instances of men starting in life with fair prospects being thus ruined. About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
