Though friends do surround its,
In earth's pleasure path,
And riches shower o'er us
The good things of earth,—
Though the sun does shine brightly,
And flowers always bloom,
No power that is earthly
Can light up the tomb.
Fame may weave for our brow
A wreath of fair flowers;
The laurels of distinction
Be given as ours ;
Yet all that is earthly,
This void cannot
For if God be not with us
The heart's lonely still.
a Wcittf fi)q.
A friend related to me a simple story, not
long since, which I think is worth telling over.
The parties of whom he spoke were near by,
and it was the presence of the hero that called
the circumstance to mind.
Abel Morton was a youth of about seven
teen. His mother was a widow, and he an
only child. They lived in part of a small
hut in the outskirts of the village, and were
very poor. During the long, cold winter the
widow had been quite sick, so that Abel had
been obliged to spend most of his time with
her. The youth had never learned any trade,
as various circumstances had combined to
prevent his leaving home. He worked when
ever he could get work to do, and thus far
managed to find food enough to keep himself
and his mother alive, though they suffered
much with cold.
As the spring opened, Abel tried to find
work, but was not successful. He picked up
a few jobs, now and then, but the proceeds
were barely sufficient to purchSse the coarsest
and. cheapest food. Clothing they could not
buy, and poor Abel began to fear that he must
beg a suit of clothes, or, what was worse,
leave his mother. But this latter he could
not do.
One afternoon he went into the village, and
spent several hours in hunting for work, but
found nothing to do. Some seemed to turn
him away blea.use, he looked so ragged, while
others said they never employed any one out
side of their own households. Faint and sick
at heart, Abel bent his steps homeward. He
had left the village, and was turning into the
narrow lane which led to his humble home,
when he detected something peculiar upon
the roadside. He picked it up, and found it
to be a small knit purse. It was quite heavy,
and the jingle of the contents was top sharp
and clear for copper.
The poor youth did not stop to open it
then, for it was already dusk, and he knew
that his mother would be anxious. So with
a strangely beating heart he hurried home
ward. Ile entered the little room where his
mother was sitting, and sank down into a

" Alas! no work," the widow murmured,
as she saw the cloud upon the boy's face.
" No," he replied, " .1 tried all around, but
it was no use."
"Never mind, Abel ; God is good. We
shall not suffer as those do who have no trust
in Him."
" But how does he help us, mother ?" asked
Abel, in a faltering voice.
"In many ways, my son. lle has pre
served us through many trials and has given
us hope and courage. Ire has preserved to
me a true and virtuous child, and has held us
clear from many sufferings which afflict our
fellows. Look at Mrs. Tyndal ; see her with
all her wealth suffering tortures that I would
not suffer for worlds. See her only son, a
poor, miserable inebriate, and in prison for a
drunken crime. For what would we ex
change our noble consciousness of right and
honor ?"
Abel made no reply. There bad been
something bearing down heavily upon his
soul—something which lay in his pocket . and
sent forth a serpent song of plenty. But the
load was removed. He drew the purse from
his pocket, and laid it on the table by his
" What is that ?" said the widow, as she
heard the sharp clink of the coin.
" A purse—l found it on the road."
" Found it? Oh, did you find it?"
" Yes, my mother. In the road, just at
the turn of our lane. It lay in the foot-path."
A candle was lighted, and the purse emp
tied. It contained twenty silver half dol
" Ten dollars," whispered Abel. " Per
haps we can find who lost it."
"Isn't there some name on the purse ?"
asked his mother.
She took it as she spoke, and upon the in
side of the clasp, which was lined with red
morocco, she read, "John Thompson."
John Thompson was one of the wealthiest
men in the place. lle owned a very large
farm ; and besides supplying a large amount
of milk to customers, he raised large quanti
ties of garden sauce and fine fruit, which he
sent to a neighboring city.
" Oh ! how easy he could spare it," whis
pered Abel. It would be no loss to him."
" That is so, in a measure, my son," said
the widow, solemnly. " llis would not be the
loss ; but we should lose—oh, how much l"
" We, mother 7"
" Aye, my boy. Should you keep this—
should we keep it—where would our honor
be? The next time you met Mr. Thompson
you'd fear to look him in the face. You could
not look at him with the happy conscious
ness of your own innocence.. There would
be a taint upon your character—a sting in
your soul. Oh, would you keep it, Abel ?"
" No, my mother, I would not. No, tw—
ill carry it back this veryulight."
" You might wait until morning, for you
must get me some wood now."
The purse was laid away in a place of safe-
ty, and on the following morning Abel started
off bright and early, and walked with a light
and buoyant step, for he was satisfied with
the work he was doing.
Mr. Thompson lived in a fine, largo man
sion, on the top of a gentle eminence, at a
short distance from the road, and was sur
rounded by a park of noble trees. Abel took
his way up the neatly graveled - walk, and
met the owner upon the broad piazza.
"Do you wish to see me, sir?" asked the
host. He was a kind, generous-looking man;
stout and corpulent, with a face full of health
and good nature.
" Yes, sir," answered Abel promptly, at
the same time ascending the piazza. " I
found a purse last evening, and on opening it 1
we found your-name upon it."
" And who is we ?"
" My mother and me, sir."
" Then you did not think you needed the
money ?"
" Sir ?" returned the youth, with an enqui
ring. gaz e.
" Seeing that you bring the money to me I
suppose you had no use for it."
"Use for it, sir?" repeated Abel, at a loss
how to understand the man. "Oh I God
knows we had use for it, but not so much as
we have for our honor and truth."
"Were you afraid . to keep it?" pursued
Mr. Thompson in the same peculiar tone.
"Afraid ! what do you mean? Do I love
my mother because I'm afraid to hate her ?
I brought your money back because it's
your's, and not mine." Thus speaking, Abel
handed the gentleman the purse and turned
away. Mr. Thompson did not say a word,
and the youth kept on, feeling glad that he
had done right; yet at the same time almost
ready to cry at the reception he had met
'When he reached home he sank into a
chair, and leaned his head upon his hand.
"Why, what's the matter Abel 2" asked
his mother, in alarm.
But before he could answer, they were
both startled by hearing a horse trot up to
the door. It was Mr. Thompson. He en
tered without ceremony lie bade the widow
a cheerful good morning, and. then took a
•`l've come on business, and I may as well
proceed at once." Then turning to Abel, he
"Are you engaged at present?"
"No sir," replied the youth eagerly, for
the man spoke very kindly.
"Wouldn't you like something to do ?"
"Oh, yes sir. I spent all the day yester
day in looking after work. My mother is
not well, and I must earn something."
"Can you write ?"
"Yes sir."
"Pretty well?"
"Yes, sir. My mother has taught me
more than I should have learned at school."
"You can cypher then ?"
"Yes sir. I have been pretty thoroughly
as far as cube root."
"Can you drive two horses ?"
"Yes, sir. I drove the stage from here to
Grantborough a good runny times, last win
"Then I think you are just the man I
want. In a few days, I shall have some
sauce to send to the city, and as yet I have
engaged no one to take charge of that de
partment. For the past two years I have
lost considerable by dishonest men. The
man who carries my produce to market has
considerable money to collect; sometimes it
will average a hundred dollars a day for a
week at a time. When I buy up fruit and
berries to send to the city, the receipts are
considerable. How should you like the
place ?"
"I could be with my mother at nights,
sir ?"
"Then I should like it very much—very
much, sir. And if I serve you, I shall serve
you faithfully."
"I have no fears on that account," said
Mr. Thompson, with a, peculiar look. "I am
fully satisfied of your honesty. I saw you
pick up my purse.
There was a slight shudder startin t' thro'
the youth's soul, for he could not help think
ing - what would have been the result had he
kept the money.
"You are not the first one I have tried,"
resumed the gentleman. "First I looked
upon Samuel Stephens. lle 18 poor, and I
thought him capable. I dropped my purse,
with my name plainly upon it, where he
should find it. lle did find it, and he kept
it. Next I tried Lot Pole and he did the
same. Some might say I had no business to
place temptation in a poor youth's way; but
I would give employment to those who most
need it, and as there is ample temptation in
the work I must have done, I thought I had
a right to try them. But youhave proved
yourself trustworthy, and I am glad of it.—
And now, if upon trial, you suit me, I will
pay you forty dollars a month, and board
you. What say you to that ?"
But poor Abel knew not what to say.—
The sum named was enormous to him. He
had wondered if he should get as much as
"Forty?" he whispered, fearful that he
had misunderstood him.
"Yes. Forty dollars a month. Will not
that answer ?"
"Oh—yes, sir. It is more than I had ex
pected—much more."
"Then you will be better saitsfied. I like
to have those who work for me satisfied, and
then if they do wrong I am not to blame.—
So, suppose you come up and look around;
we will commence the first month to day."
The poor widow felt it her duty to say
something before the kind man left, so she
turned towards him and opened her month,
and then—began to cry. Mr. Thompson un
derstood it. lie took her by the hand, and
bade her good cheer, and- then hastened
Until the 'sound of his horse's tramp had
died away in the distance both mother and
child sat in perfect silence. At length the
widow arose and sank upon her son's bosom.
`•Oh? Abel—God has blessed us wondrous

"Suppose I had kept the money," whis
pered the youth.
"Not that—not that, my son. 0? it was
not the money ; though the money, like a
miror, reflected yourself. It was the stern
integrity of your soul. You couldn't have
kept it. The simple carrying back of Len
dollars was little to be Compared with thb
principles involved.—lle saw your honor—
your truth—and for what you are has hired
Abel went up to ihe great house, and soon
found something to do. When he returned
home at night, Mrs. Thompson sent a covered
basket for his mother, and Mr. Thompson
gave him an order on ie tailor for a new suit
of clothes.
Thu busy season came on and Mr. T. was
not long in discovering that he bad won a
treasure in his new hand. Abel sold more
produce than had ever been sold before from
the place, and he got better prices ; or at least
he returned to his employer far better. And
that was not all. The buisness was kept
square—even. to the fraction of a penny—ev
ery day ; so that any moment Mr: Thompson
could tell just how he stood.
But there was but one difficulty. The pro:
ducer often wished for the assistance of his
produce agent in the evening, especially
wheh he had any accounts to make out. So
he talked with his wife, and it was soon
arranged that the Widow Morton should come
and find a home beneath their roof. She
had grown stronger, and the flush of health
was again on her cheek, since her son bad af
forded her the many comforts she needed,
and she accepted the new offer with pleasure.
Abel could now spend all his time in his em
ployer's interests, and the happiness of all
concerned was greatly enhanced thereby.
I saw a wealthy man walk to his house and
as he stood and gazed around upon his broad
acres half a dozen children broke away from
an old lady, who had been playing with
them, and bounded to his side ; and I could
hear their happy cries of "Papal Papa !"
It was Abel Morton : and the old lady was
his mother. He was an honored, happy man,
for strict Honor and Truth had• been his
guide through life.
M.A.Taixtozyr.—One of the most remarka
ble features connected with this interesting
institution, is the successive changes it un
dergoes in the course of its history. For the
first six months it is all "ducky" and "sugar."
As we enter our second olympiad however, a
change comes over not only our affections,
but our apparel; we no longer talk preserz•rs,
while our ruffled shirts have much broader
plaits that they could once boast of. When
the young husband and wife first enter upon
their new relation,- how little do they see
what is before them in the shape of troubles,
gridirons, cradles,• rocking-chairs, cholera in
fantum, bakers' bills, small shoes, paregoric
and hobby horses. As they for the first
time take possession of their new house, and
enjoy its cheering aspect, its regularity and
quiet, and its expreseion of domestic peace
and joy, how little do they anticipate the tri
als and vicissitudes, the deep yet unseen
fountains of joy and sorrow which lie in
thier way!
In a few years how changed! One after
another has been added, in various ways to
the company which began only with two, un
til at length they find themselves presiding
over a numerous circle of children, and rela
tives, and domestics—the father and mother
both involved in responsibilites, from which
they would have shrunk, had they anticipa
ted them at the outset. In a few years this
happy circle must be broke in upon and scat
tered. Death comes and takes away Abram ;
a young lady, with pink boddice and black
eyes comes in and carries off Alexander; a
third, determined to die a sailor's death,
ships before the mast on a canal; a fourth
growing covetous, starts for California; while
a fifth in all probability, gets his intestines
kicked out by the sorrel bull. At last the
father and mother are left alone; and after
fifty years' of trouble, love, and vexation,
they find themselves worse off than when
they started.- They are not only alone again
but they are alone without the hope of any
more company.
Correct Speaking
We advise all young people to acquire in
early life the habit of using good language,
both in speaking and writing, and to aban
don as early as possible any use of slang
words and phrases. The longer they live the
more difficult the acquisition of such lan
guage will be; and if the golden age of
youth, the proper season for the acquisition -
of language be past in its abuse, the unfortu
nate victim of neglected education is very
probably doomed to talk slang for life.—
Money is not necessary to procure this edu
cation. Every man has it in his pOwer. He
has merely to use the langua g e which - he
reads instead of the slang which he hears ;:to
form his taste from the best speakers, and
poets of the country ; to treasure up choice
phrases in his memory, and habituate him
self to their use—avoiding a ie same time
that pedantic precision andmbast, which
show rather the weakness of a vain ambition
than the polish of an educated mind.
COURTESY.-- , Courtesy is a distinguished fea
ture of civilized and intelligent society. It
is the'most beautiful illustration- of the reftn.
ing power which a higher development al
ways exerts upon our race. By courtesy,
we mean that behavior of man towards man
which one will ask for himself. It is but
part of the mode of carrying out of the Chris
tian precept, which lies at the base of harmo
ny and order among men: "Do unto others as
you would that others should do unto you."
That this precept is divine, as is all moral
truth, is proved by our common appreciation
of its fitness and beauty. Do what we may
in life, the wheels of society can never run
smoothly and well, where the spirit of cour
tesy does not actuate the deeds and thoughts
of man in his intercourse with nom. Neces
sary as it is in civilized society, courtesy has
its power among the lowest and most savage.
That which leads us to do as we would be
done by, especially in the more . refined and
refining intercourse of our lives, is the con
ciliating angel which,- whatever ratty be our
dondition, or whoever we may be, will pow
erfully help to guard us against every enmity
or assault.—Erchangc.
