In gooil King Charles' golden days,
When loyalty no harm meant,
A r.ealous hlgh-clmrchmnti was I,
And so I got preferment ;
To tcadi my flock I novcr missed,
Kings are by God appointed,
And damti'd are those who do ri slst,
Or touch tho Lord's nnolntcd.
And this Is lnw I will maintain
Until my dying liny, sir,
That whatsoever king shall reign,
I'll be tho Vicar of Bray, sir.
Whon royal James obtained tho crown,
And Popery enmo lu fashion,
Then penal laws I hooted dowu,
And rend tho declaration i
Tho Church of Homo I lonnd wonld fit
Full well my constitution ;
And had become a Jesuit
But for tho ltovolntlou.
And this Is law I will maintain, Ac.
When William was our king declined,
To soo tho nation's arlcvanco,
With this nowwlnd about I steeled
And sworq to him nlleglauco ;
Old principles I did revoke,
Set conscience at n distance ;
Passivo obedlenco was n Joke,
A Jest was nou-rcslstnuce.
And this Is law I will mnlntnln, Ac.
When gracious Ann became our (iueen
Tho Church of England's glory,
Another face of things was been,
And 1 hocumo n tory ;
Occasional conformists base,
I damn'd their moderation.
And thought tlio Church lu danger was
lly such a provocation.
And this Isluw I will mnlntnln, Ac.
When Georgo in pudding llnio came o'er,
And moderate men looked big, sir,
I turn'd n caMu-pan once more,
And then bccanio n whig, sir.
And thus preferment I procur'd
From our new faith's defender!
And nlmoit every day abjured
Tkc Popi and the Pretender.
Ami this Is law 1 will maintain, AO.
Tho Illustrious House of Hanocr,
And Protestant succession
To tlieso I do olUglanco swear
While they can keep possession ;
For In my faith nnd loyally
I novcr more will f ilter,
And George my lawful klnj shall be
Until tho times do niter.
And this is law I will maintain
Until ivy dying day, sir.
That whatsoever king shall iclgn,
I'll bo tho Vlc.ir of llrny, klr.

ONE cvcnlntr four German students
ut tlio university wcro enjoyins them
selves iu on upper room of a little hotel.
Thcv hntl four Instruments nntl were
einployinp; themselves in makinp; mu
sie, after tho haril labors of tho day.
Thero was n pauso in their music; but
no sooner had they ceased playlnp;,tlinii
they heard an old mnn playing a violin
beneath their window, in tho street.
They went to their window and looked
out, watching him until lio ceased play
inc. One of them threw out a liitle
pieco of money, and said to him laugh
"Here, poor Peter, that is nil wo have
for you now; como again some other
"Yes," said another, "como again in a
year from now."
Then wo will give you a little house
for a prcscnt," said tlio third.
"Yes, in tho middle of it garden,"
said the fourth.
Tho old man was struck with wonder
nt such it promise. His long while
linlr shono brightly in tho light of tho
lanterns which hung out at tho neigh
boring restaurant. Ho looked up to
tho window, nnd said, after a moment's
"Young people, aro you in earnest
what you say to me ? I hope you are
not making light of an old man."
"Indeed, wo aro in earnest," replied
Ernest, with oxcited voico: nnd his
tlireo companions called upon God to
witness their seriousness.
"Farewell, then," replied tlio old
mini. "I take inv leavo of you. Ono
year from to-day, at this sumo hour, e.v
pect mo to como and play a tuno be
neath this window, l'arewcll, may the
Almighty Ono whoso naino you have
called upon, bless you in your kind
Tlio old man went oil', after invoking
lliis blessing upon thorn. Tho studenls
closed tlio window, took their instru
ments again in their hands, nntl, .after
having played three or four lively tunes
.seemed to forget all that had occurred,
Ernest f-aid to them, however, after the
spacoof about halfaii hour, "You seem
to bo very ciuieti I cannot be, fur I havo
nuulo a promise that I would give some
thing which I linvo not got."
"What promiso?" asked one of his
"Tlio promise of u houso and garden."
A loud laugh was thorespoiii-otlmtho
met with; nnd tho students soparated.
They met again on tho following even
ing, nnd, during thu interview, Ernest
called to mind tho promise of tho
night before. They madollghtoriilm,
and told hi nt that ho was foolish to pay
any nioro attention to it. Then, said
lie, "I don't see where your consciences
are, if you can mko n promise nnd
break your word."
"How can you ftilllll any promise of
Unit kindV" said Christopher. "Our
parents nro nil poor, and havo moro
than they cuii do to send us to tlio uni
versity. How then can they holp us to
buy u houso nnd garden for a foolish
old man? Good night, comrades, I
wish you as pleasant a sleep as I shall
Hut this kind of argument did not
affect KrnoU much, lor he could not
help thinking that ho was compelled to
keep his bargain. Ho wtw tho poorest
ono of tlio group, for his mother was
plain widow, nnd she made her living
by washing. Tho promUo that ho had
mado deeply affected him, mid hu left
the university fur it week, so that ho
might go homo und tell hU mother tho
pledgo Unit lie had made to tlio old mu
sician. After ho had told her, sho re
plied : "Keep it my boh ; keop it, if it
costs your II fo I"
"That Is hat I will try to do, moth,
or; und I hopo I shall havo your
Ernest roturned to the university, und
told Ills fiiwids that they mint think so
rlously of buying the old man n houso
nud garden. He went to u neighboring
vlliagu ouo day, uud found that ho could
get it n cut llttlo homo mid garden for
two thousand guldens. That wn9 a
largo sum for thoso poor students to
think of paying; but through thoinflu
enco of Ernest, tlio other thrco gradual
ly becamo convinced that it wns their
duty to keep their promise. Tlio foui
vesol ved that In ono ycnr from tho tlmo
tho pledgo was mado tho old mnn should
havo hid house and garden, If it was In
their-power to got It for lilm.
Thoy mint leavo the-university asad
proceeding for them. Thoy camo to tho
conclusion to go through tho country
nnd give llttlo concerts; for really this
appeared to them to bo tho only way
possiblo' to gain ntiy money. i.ven by
pursuing thi3 course, thero appeared to
bo u poor prospect of- gottlng a large
sum. fcjtlll liiey resoiveu to uo inoir
best. They closed their books, put their
instruments in their llttlo bugs, and bet
out on foot, to glvo concerts lu tho vil
lages through which thoy might pass;
Ernest, before, lenving, exacted a. prom
ise of the mini who owned tho house
nud lot which ho looked at, that he
would not sell It under six mouths to
any one; and, that it no wouiti promiso
to tnke it at tlio end of that tlmo lie
might have It, though the money need
not by paid under n year, week nfter
week passed by, and tho students slow
ly proceeded on their way. Their ox
peiiseSjWcro jiot heavy, but their in
como wits certainly very small. Nino
months nnd n half passed by nnd .still
they had but iiliio hundred guldens. It
wns a great oueitlon with them how
the remaining thirteen hundred could
bo raised. They were spending one day
at n country town," und u nobleman liv
ing iu n largo eastlo ti few miles distant,
nas' seeking musicians to'ntteiul the
wedding of his daughter, who was to
bo married lu three or four days. For
innately enough for tho students, tlio
nobleman employed them for the occv
slon. The marriage ceremonies took
place, and by-and-by It wns tlmo for
the music to begin. The students had
trained themselves very carefully for
that evening and their selections wcro
of it very high order. During the
course of tho festivities, It was noticed
that the nobleman becamo very iad.
Ills face wore n melancholy appearance
and Ums-oAvho stootl nearest to him saw
ill in weeping. What could have caused
him to be melancholy at such a time as
Hint ? One of tho pieces that thoo mu
sicians" had played was his mother's fa
vorite melody. She lrid often sung it
to hint, many years ago, and he had
not heard it since, until tho students
ployed it. It was enough to' make him
sorrowful, and it drew thoso students
to his heart In such n way that lie could
not express his feelings. Thoy had re
called' til his memory n pieco of'music
which ho hod never been able to find In
any music store, and which it wns now
worth it forttino for him to hear.
I mint now ninko my story short.
Tho nobleman kept the four students in
ills castlu two weeks, bcc.imo acquaint
ed with them fully, and learned their
object In leaving tlio university to give
concerts. Ho supplied them with three
thousand guidons and told them Unit
ho would pay their expensesat tho uni
versity for four yours, and that they
might havo tho privilege of making
drafts on him nt any time.
Their fortune wns better than they
had any reason to expect. Ernest hud
ulready written to tho owner of the
houso nntl garden "that ho might expect
them to take it, su Unit it was now en-gaged.
The students returned to tho univer
sity, and reached thero )usl before the
end of the year, when tho homo must
bo ready for the owner. On tho even
ing of tho day when tho old man prom
ised to appear, ho stood below tho win
dow iu the bright winter moonlight,
playing on his old violin. Ho was true
to lii-j word, and expected tho promise
to bo kept, Tho young men went down
to invito him up, and told him all thoy
hud d one. They show ed him the deed
for his place, anil gave it to him. On
tho following day he formally took pos
session of it, and they supplied It with
furniture and groceries for Iiousektcp-
l'Diirteeii years uner thai time, (lie
place enme into their possession; fur
tho old man had died uud bcMUcnlhcd
it to tlieni in Ids will. That part of the
town rose suddenly in value. Many
things contributed to its increased val
ue, which 1 will not now enumerate.
It Is enough to say that seventeen
year from tho time that our btudeuts
guvo tho deed of that houso and garden
to tho old musician, tho 111110. property
which had cost two thousand guldens
was worth eighty thousand. Tho stu
dents, liiroforc, were not merely re
paid lu heart but nlso lu money. They
hnd kept their word ; and tlio memory
of being faithful to the word even to tlio
poor old man whohatl no power to com
pel them to bo true to it, was a pleasant
memory as long us they lived.

The i'litsT Shot. A London paper
relates tho following under the appar
ent impression of it being n fact ! "Tho
xsortiieners carry their revolvers at
