Two boys, of nearly the same age, we m

They Jmd chosen one bf the squares of the
playground, thinking, by this means, Jtt
avoid doing mischief. To the consteriia
tiqu of the thrower, a missile, instead -oi
resting, bn the shoulders of him at whom
it was aimed, entered the library window
of one of the lordly mansions fbrmuij
the quadrangle. I
“ Why don’t you take to your heeh
you blockhead ; you will have the pollc
after you, whilst you are standing stariuj
there," was the exclamation of hie ram
panion, and he caught him by the anpii
order to drag him from the spot.. Th
author of the mischief still retained; his
thoughtful position. !
“If your father is obliged to pay for
this, you will stand a chance of having a
good thrashing, Jack,'- the other {hoy
urged.. )
“Never mind, Tom; leave me to my-
was the reply ; and the young de
linquent moved, with unfaltering step, to
wards the door of, the mansion, the knock
er., of which ho unhesitatingly raised.—
The summons was answered by a footman. 1
“Is the master of the hottse at home ?”
he with, some diffidence .enquired.- /
ft Ko u/’
i( I wish to see him, if you please.”
“ That jo*. can’t do, my man; but I’ll
deliver any message for. you. 7 '
“ No, .that,lidll not do.S I must, indeed
X must see the gentleman himself.”
, The earnestness and perseverance of the
boy at length induced -him Jo comply
iftth his request, and opening the door of
the Hbrai7,\e ; apologised for asking his
master to see a shabby little fellow; ad
ding that he could neither learn his busi
ness nor get rid of him.
“Bring him in,” said the gentleman
addressed,; having witnessed the
transaction, arid overheard the conversa
rion, was curious to know the object of
the boy’s visit. The poor child, whose
ideas had never soared above his father’s
second floor,stood for some. moments in
stupefied amazement when ushered into
an elegant apartment; but remembering
the painful direumstance which had bro't
him into of enchantment, he in
some measure regained his self-possession.
“ I am Very sorry, sir,” he began, ip a
faltering voice, “but I have broken your
window. My father is out 'of work just
npw, and _ cahupt pay for it; but if you
will be kind enough to take the money, a
little at a time, as I can get it, I will be
sure to make it up and as he spoke, he
drew.a few hsjlipence from his pocket and
laid them on the table.
“ That’s ah, honest speech, my lad; but
how am I to* be sore that you will fulfil
your. engagement ?" Mr. Cavendish re
plied, u Do you* know that I could have
sent you to the station house till the mo
ney is made up
“Oh 1 don’t send me there, sir; it
would break my dear mother’s neart. I
will pay you bjl>; indeed I will, sir j” and
the poor boy burst into a flood of tears,
“ I ®m glad you have so much consider
ation for your mother’s feelings ; and for
her sake, I will trust to your honesty.”
“Oh! thank you, sir; thank you.”'
“ But when ido you expect to make
me another payment ?” 'This is a very
small sum towards the price of a large
square of plate glass ;” and as he spoke,
he glanced at the four halfpence which
the boy had spread out.
“ This day .week, sir, if you- pleas?.”
“ Very wellj let it be so; at this'hour J
shall be at home to see you.”
Poor Jack made his very best bow and
* * * ♦ .♦ , *
< Tfne to his« appointment, our high prin
cipled boy appeared at the door of Mr.
Cavendish’s mansion. As the footman
had, previously received igrders -to admit
him; ne was Immediately shown into the
room. i
“ J have a ‘ shilling for you to-day, sir;
hesaid exultihgly, and his countenance
was radiant w|th smiles.
“Indeed! That is a large sum for a
boy like you to obtain in so short a time.
I %)pe yon came by it honestly.”
A flush of crimson mounted to the
cheek of poor jack j but it was not the
flush of shame.
• “ I earned Avery penny of it, sir, ex
cepting one my mother gave me to make
it np,” he erieigbtifeally replied; and he
proceeded to say that he had been on the
Ipok-but for jobs all week ; that he held
the porse for one gentleman, and he had
run bn an errand,fpr another; in this way
accounting for. Pleven pence, i
“ Your industry and perseverance do
you'credit, my Jadj!” Mr. Cavendish ex
[i [ claimed, his benevolent countenance light
ing up with a smile. “ And npw I should
like to know your nam? and place of resi
dence/’ --h:l ■' . | '
r. I will write it, sir, if you please. In
deed, X brought a piece of paper for the
purpose of putting down the'money. I
hope I shall be able to make it up io a
few weeks, for 1 am trying to .get a situa
tion .as an errand boy.”
“You can write, then ? pj you go to
school ?” :
Oh, yes, .sir. Igoto a ft

A'TW will do, my good
, when do you jthiak you wi
iO' come and bring me some mi
g u I will come again this tin
i- if I'm alive aud well, sir.”
» “ That was wisely addedJ my lad, for
1 our lives are not in our own
This, I see, you have been taught.
' ♦ * * * ' ; ■ ’ *
. Another week passed, apd again Jack
appeared, but His countenance wore ah as?
pect of sadness. • |
«I am very sory, sir,” ho said,“l have
been, unfortunate, and have only a small
sum to give you:” And as he spoke, he
laid three pennyworth of halfpence before
Mr. Cavendish. “ X assure you, sir,” he
earnestly added, “ I have offered my ser
vices to every gentleman on horseback
that 1 could see.”
“ I believe you, my boy
with your honest intentions
} I am pleased
Perhaps you
[independent in everything.]
will meet with better success, another time.
Let me see; you i have now paid one shil
ling andfivepencje; that is not amiss for
the time;” and, withahencouraging smile,
Mr. Cavendish suffered'him to depart.
**: * * *
Though Mr. Cavendish from the
first, concealed his intentions, his hear;
was planning a work of benevolence, which
was nothing less than to befriend the poor
boy, whose noble conduct had won his ad
miration. For this end, he, a few days
subsequently, paid the parents a visit
when he knew that the son would be at
school. He related the incident which
had brofught him under his notice, and
proceeded to ask whether his conduct to
ward themselves was equally praiseworthy.
“Oyes, sir!” exclaimed the mother,
her eyes filling with tears. “He has ev
er been a dutiful child to us, and always
acts in this honest, straight-forward man
' “He has, indeed, a noble spirit, sir,”
the father rejoined; and lam as proud of
him as if we were a prince.”
“ Would you part with him ?” Mr. Cav
endish asked. “ I have something in view
for his future benefit.”
“ Undoubtedly we would for his bene
fit,” was the reply of both.
“- Well, then, purchase him a new suit
of apparel with these two guineat, and
bring him to my residence this day week.
I will acquaint you with my views for him
for the future.”
Language cannot describe the heartfelt
gratitude which beamed in the heart of the
parents, nor could they find words to give
it utterance.

Eloquent Extract.
Ah, is what bur hearts, all
want, quiet, quiet! And this is what the
world cannot give us, Are'not its gifts
finite, and are not our souls infinite f Oh,
poor, tired, human soul, buffetting with
the winds and waves of this stormy life,
be still! look upward ! Askjnot of Time
what is not in its treasury—jFfiat it never
fave, what it never can givei id hny man;
tit ask it of Hod, and in answer shall
come the peace “ He glveth His beloved."
“ If I was only Understood, land appre
ciated, and I wauttqihe loved,
then I could he perfectly happy,” is the
ciy of so many hearts. Ndl'nd! Hu
man. love cfinndi make one “perfectly,
happy,” and if it could, Il6w small, and
narrow, and pitiable piust fie : the soul
whom the love pf another; frail; human
soul could fill. ?
God did not place us heire as beings
simply receptive of enjoyment, but to
create and endure; to find our own hap
piness in living for others! Try this,
reader, letting all therestgp;and see if
you do not, in the end, find yoqy own
nappiness. ■ I . "■ . '
Ah I how mistaken, how hKis we qre,
searching for the soul’s “ hidden treasure”,
among the things of earth thirsting for
the cooling draughts, hungering aftdr die
golden fruits that gladden no valleys) and
grow in no gardens of this world; but that
fill the sire of Heaven with their sweet
sounds and soft fragrance I s
Quiet! quiet! and how cspi a man py
woman’s heart know this until ail fear of
death be taken awiry? Whatsoever be
your faith or creed, reader, do we not join
hands in this belief? Who> going upon
a journey, does not ponder tfie end of if ?
and is not life a journey, and death its
close-for ail of us ? And until we'can feel
that whether it come slow or sudden we
can place our hands quietly jn its cold
ones, and say, “ I am ready to go,” we
cannot be “quiet,” we have;not learned
to live.

Oh, reader, for us all, the "tents will

possession of Mr. Howells, tailor, Gains

not look unlike the leg of a stool —out of
which it is said that Bunyan, while In
prison, manufactured it. When the turn

tered hi's cell to ascertain, if possible, the
cause of the harmony, the flute was repla
