Tho Misfortunes and Consolations
of Fcregrino Twcezlo.
My friend Twcezlo Inw, through lire,
been tho most unfortunate, nnd yol tlio
most fortuunto, of men. Every species
of calamity litis befallen lilin,antl yet lio
lins never oneo been unlinjipy. Misfor
tune nnd ho lmvo over been nt war; slio
(lartii(r Iter missiles nt liiin, and ho
throwing them back nt her, or raising
p bastions, behind which ho has en
sconced himself, nnd laughed tho mali
cious Jiulo to scorn. Lucky has It been
for lilui that ho has been made of hucIi
impenetrable stuff:" lucky for him
that ho lias had n, thick head and a tough
liido ; and that, like tiio tortoise, which
oiicnsetl in its hard shell, lets tho pon
derous wagon wheel pass over It with
out llincliintr, ho also has been ublo to
lot tho heavy car of falo drive right
over hla back, without having a alnglo
bono broken by tho pressure. Some
men, when under tho lash of misfortune,
suddenly imagine that thoy ought to bo
religiou3,and talie. to praying most vehe
mently whilo thu danger lasts ; others
nro again opIimUts, iiutl when tho shoe
pinches them, console themselves by
quoting tho hacknoyod lino of tho poet,
whatever is, is right;" while others-
poor weak minded creatures I Hy lo
tho bottle for holaco, nut) mill; o beasts of
themselves, because fatohas proved un
wind. Twei.'.lo, however condemns ull
these methods, nnd consoles himself In
ti manner peculiarly his own. When
ever any facowllng, ill favored llend, of
Iho many that follow in thu train of
misfortune, stares him in thu face, my
friend Tweeziesits himself calmly down
nnd looks nt him. Ho quietly takes tho
iiiciifcuru of liis deformity, and if tho
iicud should have by chance any good
parts about him, ho treasures them hi
Ids remembrance. Then lie sliute his
eyes mid gives loose rein to ills imagina
tion ; which, nulling itwlf nt liberty to
dixpurt, speedily depicts tho monster as
ten thoui.nid limes more hideous than
hori'idly K At tills creation of his fancy.
rweezlo shudders, his hair Htands on
nil and ho thinks himself Indeed an
unfortunate man, to bo in thu prcnenco
of a misfortuiio so great nnd so menac
ing. This, however, only lasts for a
moment and Twcezlo opens ills oyes
again. Thu monster Is still there. 'Ha!
ha I' says Twtczle, pretending to bo
agreeably surprised, "is that you? Lord
love you, I thought you wore a great
deal uglier ; really you are not half so
bad ns you might hnvo been. Your faco
is really pleasant and your behavior ac
tually courteous, in comparison with
tho ono I took for you. What a lucky
fellow I am, that Eato has sont 1110, in
your person, a misfortuiio that I can
put up with, Ha.niy gontl fellow I there
is comfort yet In storo I" And Twcezlo
rhapsodizing in this strain, actually re.
Jo lees that a little misfortune has come
upon him, becatHoa greater might,wlth
as much Justice, lmvo bofiilli'ii him.
Twcezlo nun x wero school reiiowp,
uml ono trait of his early character will
exemplify his peculiarphilosophy.I'cro
giiup, being so easy and good uatured,
shared tho fato of nil easy folks, and was
always put upon, and became lu fact,
tho scapegoat of the whole school. If
any riotous urchin hud committed a
fault, broken it window, knocked down
n pio woman, or drawn a ciuicaturo of
our pedagogue upon thu wall, Pero
griucwas, pointed out ns tho delinquent.
Straightway the awful ferul was put
Into requisition; und Twcezlo and its
thongs became moro Intimately nc
quaintfd than was nt nil agreeable to
the former. Tweezlu was nt this tiiuo
but seven years old; hut his ruling mux
im hail even then penetrated Into his
brain, mid become thu guido of his con
duct and his consolation in distress. Our
pedagogue Mr, Tliuiiip'emwell had a
wife, who had u very inordliiatu notion
of her own excellence, both menial and
corporeal, unil a very supreme contempt
for her husband In holh respects.
Thiimp'eiiiwell if rumor xpoku truly,
now and then experienced from tills
nlU'Ctlonalo partner it low proofs of tho
superiority, which who niauilested hy
imprinting upon his laco tho marks of
her delicato lingers, and by letting fall
upon his oyes the weight of her dainty
fist. Ono unlucky morning, some sa
tirical rogue III imturcd us satirists al
ways are drew with chalk upon tint
wall u very tolerable iTpicscntHtlon of
one of tho striking, scenes above ullu
detl to, which had on tho previous oven
ing ngrutiibly relieved tho dull monot
ony of thu school-master's life. When
TliuiiipViiiwi'llcuiuoilown In the morn
ing, ids eyes rit,tod immediately upon
lids sketch of connubial felicity. Ho
gazetl upon It in tiwliil silence, and then
his faco grew so red, und tho veins of
Ills forehead mj swollen that wo
thought ho woultl hnvu sutrocated.
Clenching his hand, and striking it
against thu desk, uisetliug at Ihe sumo
time an Inkstand nil ovei hi muiktt'ii
nether garments, he, with it still small
voice, oidcri'tl us all to stand up, Thu
dieatl summons was obeyed, and wo
stood In u lino across tho room. Tliuiiip'
emwell was nlwnys In a tremendous
fury whenever hospoko low nnd bland
ly, nnd wo accordingly prepared our
selves for nn explosion.
"Now my dear childrensaid Thump'
cinwell, ' you know I lovo you sincoro

hold of his ferula us ho spoko, 'nnd I
should die with grief, If one of you over

"Now,1 continued ho after n short
pausu 'I was telling you that I loved
you dearly i and, as I lovo you, I must

he, still In tho same bland volco 'that
my affection compels mo to punish tho
offender. Tlieroforo I ask you who did
"Tell me, or I will flog every soul of
you from tho biggest to the least. Who
was tho ntroclous reptilo that had tho

Still there was no reply; and Thump'

Again the question was risked, nnd nil
eyes wero directed towards poorTweezle,
who, though guiltless ns the babe un
born, stood trembling nt tho bottom of
tho file. His countenanco was pale, his
oyes wero downcast, and his knees
knocked together. As tho flcrco look
of tho pedngoguo was turned towards
him, my poor friond thought that ho
might as well have been guilty slnco ha
was suro to bear the punishment.
"It was you, was it ; you incorrigible
rascal?" said Thump'emwcll, seizing
the unlucky Peregrine by tho napo of
the neck. 'Now go sir, und rub it dir."
Twcezlo did ns lie was desired.
"Now mydcar little boy,"said Thum'p
emwcll, "come hero I"
Twcezlo kuew it would bo of no uu
to resist, nnd so hu went.
In a minuto afterwards, tho Instru
ment of torture ascended and descended
in rapid succession, and tho screams of
the unhappy sufferer resounded through
"I'll teach you, you iinp,to mnko sport
of your superiors,' said Thump'emwcll,
lifter hu had Hogged him till Ills arm
was tired. 'And now;" added lie,"conio

Twcezlo, still bellowing, as If ho had
tho lungs of ten urchins, was dragged
by Tliuiiip'emwell lo n llttlo dark, dus
ty room, used ns tho prison for Juvenile
delinquentsand there locked up. Wo
nil of us 1 lean I him roaring for about
llvo minutes, when thunoiso gradually
subsided, and ho wits us quiet as if lie
had dropped asleep. Feeling acutely
for ids sufferings, and indignant that he
should l.avu umlerguiiu such scvero pun
ishment fur uu offence of which ho was
guiltless, I seized an opportunity to
steal nway to condole with him upon
ids wrongs. Tapping gently at the door
of his prison I announced myself, and
straightway began to consolo liiin un
der tho pressure uf his evil fortune.
"Oil, I iftn quite comfortable!" said
Twcezie,8topping mo short in tho midst
of my lamentations.
"What!1 said I, surprised, 'after such
a beating as that Infernal Thump'em
wcll gave you?"
"Yes," said Twcezlo.
"And threo whole days lo ho locked
up hero and condemned to bread and
water. Comfortable did you say?"
" es,quitocuuifortablc,"said Twcezlo
'one tiling only troubles me."
"And what is that?'
"That I was not guilty. However, I
llitond to become so us soon as I get out
and there's comfort in that."
'Well done, Twcezlo I 1 admire you
for that! But Is It nol cruel neverthe
less that you should bo confined hero
for three days? Is It not disgraceful ?"
"It Is rather,' replied Twoezlc; "but I
don't mind it. Three days will sooner

Anil wjtli this small grain of comfort
that his punishment might havo
been more severe, Twcezlo passed tho
term of big Imprisonment in cheerful

This was ono of the trouble of his

The iS'im under this hoad, tells, ii
thrilling story, to show that tho ngo of
heroic deeds Is not past-lhu hero In
tills case being n poor employeo of ii
railroad company, and within n few
miles of Now York, Wo quote:
Albert G. Drecker Is tho brldgo-tentl-cr
at thu Passaic river drawbridge, on
tho Newark und Now York railroad.
On Friday afternoon, Just previous to
tho tlmu for a passenger train to roach
the brldgo, the draw was open. Mr.
Docker know that tho train was coming.
Ho begun to turn the bridge, so as to
close the draw before Its arrival.
At this moment lie saw his littlu son,
who was only ten years old, nnd who
was Hot far from him, fall from tho
brldgo into tho river below. Tho agon
ized father looked down tho track. Ho
saw tho train coming swiftly towartl
tho bridgo, nnd know that to do ids ut
most thero was barely tlmo to close the
draw. In tho water below him ills boy
was struggling for life. A leap into tho
stream nt this moment, and he could
savo his child. But the train camo
thundering down, and he know that If
ho left his post for even a single instant
a hundred lives might be sacrificed. Ho
stayed. Siowiy tho brldgo was swung
into position, and tho train passed safe
ly over, and none of tho passengers
know what their safety had cost tho
poor workman, who sprang Into the
river only to taka thence tho lifeless
body of his boy.
Is tliero any story of heroism to sur
pass this? Think, If you cau, of tho ter
rible alternatives of duty which wero
preseuted to this man. Tlioro was no
tlmo to dellbeiate. His son was dying.
Ho could easily rescue lilm by leaping
into tho river beneath. But that leap
must havo cost many other precious
lives perhaps hundreds and had ho a
right to imperil theso? Tho agony of a
lifetimo of suffering must havo been
compressed into that moment of doubt.
With subllmo nnd heroic fortitude, this
uoblo father resolved to do Ills highest
duty; aud to that duty his son was sac
rificed. How many of us would lmvo
douo tho same.
Touching. Wab. Incident. Rev.
Henry "Ward Bcecher, at his Friday
evening praycrmeeting, related the fol
lowing: "Not long since I found myself at
Cincinnati, with a llttlo sparo tlme.iiud
I thought 1 would improve it by visit
ing somo of tho southern battlo-llclds
and burial places. I first proceeded to
Nashville, On going out to tho bol
dlers' Cemetery, lobaerved a man plant
ing a flower over a grave I approach
ed him and nsked if his son was buried
there? 'No,' was tho response. 'A son-in-law?'
'No,' 'A relatlvo?' 'No.'
'Whose memory ,thpn, do you cherish?'
I ventured to nsk. After delaying a
moment, and putting down u small
board which ho had in ids hand: 'Well,
