GI :On STUART, ESq.,PreSident of the Philadelphia Young
Men's Christian Association, was present at the John street
Methodist church, and addressed the congregation; during
the course of his remarks he read a religious poem entitled,
"What's the News?" the special interest connected with
which he said "arose from the fact, that the author was a
young man, now dead, who was insane on almost every
subject except that of religion, on which ho continued to
the last thoroughly sane and intelligent."
The following are the lines, which were published at the
request of the meeting :
Whenc'er we meet you always, say,
What's the news? What's the news?
Pray what's the order or the day ?
What's the news? What's the news?
Oh, I have got good news to tell!
My Savior has done all things well,
And triumphed over death and hell—
That's the news! That's the newsl
The lamb was slain on Calvary—
That's the news t That's the news!
To set a 'world of sinners free—
That's the news ! That's the news!
'Twits there his precious blood was shed,
'Twits there ho bowed his sacred head,
But now he's risen from the dead—
That's the news ! That's the news I
To heaven above the conqueror's gone—
That's the news ! That's the news !
lie passed triumphant to the throne—
That's the news! That's the news!
And on that throne Ire will remain
Until as judge lie comes again,
Attended by a dazzling train—
That's the news! That's the news!
Ills work's reviving all rronnd—
That's tho news! That's the ours!
And many have redemption found—
That's the news! That's the news!
And there souls have caught the flame,
They shout hosaunah to Ills name,
And all around they spread his fame—
That's the news! That's the news!
And Christ the Lord can save me now—
That's the news! That's the news !
Your sinful hearts he can renew--
That's the news! That's the news!
This moment, if for sins you grieve,
This moment, if you do believe,
A full acquittal you'll receive—.
That's the news! That's the news!
And then if any one should say—
That's the news! That's the news!
Oh, tell them you've begun to pray--
That's tho news! That's tho news!
That you have joined the congnerirxg band
And now with joy at God's command,
You're marching to the better Land—
That's the news! That's the news!

" Is she dead, then ?"
" Yes, madam," replied a. little gentleman
in a brown coat and short breeches.
" And her will ?"
"Is going to be opened here immediately
by her solicitor."
" It must be supposed so ; we have claims."
"Who is that miserably dressed personage,
who intrudes herself here ?"
" Oh, she," said the little man, sneering—
she won't have much in the will ; she is sis
ter to the deceased."
"What, that Anne, who wedded in 1812 a
man of nothing—an officer."
Precisely so."
" She must have no small amount of im
pudence to present herself here, before a re
spectable family."
" The more so as sister Egerie, of noble
birth, had never forgiven her for that masa
liance." -
Anne moved, at this time, across the room
in which the family of the deceased were as
sembled. She was pale ; her line eyes were
filled with tears, and her fitee was furrowed
by care with precocious wrinkles.
"!What do you come for ?" said, with great
laughtiness, Madame de Villeboys, the lady
who a moment before had been interrogating
the little man who inherited with her.
" Aladaxae," the poor lady replied, with hu
mility, " I do not come. here to claim a part
of what does not belong to me ; I come sole
to see M. Dubois, my, poor sister's solicitor,
to inquire if she spoke to me at her last
" What ! do you think people busy them
selves about you ?" arrogantly observed Ma
dame de Villeboys ; " the disgrace of a great
house—you, who wedded a man of nothing,
a soldier of Bonaparte !"
" Madam, my husband, although a child of
the people, was a brave soldier ; and what is
better, an honest man," observed Anne.
At this moment a venerable personage, the
notary, Dubois, made his appearance.
" Cease," he said, " to reproach Anne with
a union which her sister has forgiven her.—
Anne loved a generous, brave, and good man,
who had no other crime to reproach himself
with than his poverty and obscurity of his
name. Nevertheless, had he lived—if his
family had known him as I know him, I his
only friend—Anne would be at this time hap
py and respected."
But why is this woman here ?"
" Because it is her place to be here," said
the notary gravely ; " I myself requested her
to attend here."
M. Dubois then proceeded to open the will.
" I being sound in my mind and heart,
Egerie de Do mfreming, retired as a boarder
in the convent of the Sisters of the Sacred
Heart of Jesus, dictate the following wishes
as the expression of my formal desire and
principal clause of my testament :
" Utter my decease there will be found two
hundred thousand francs, in money, at my
notary's, besides jewelry, cloths, and furni
ture, as also a chatteau worth two hundred
thousand francs.
" In the convent where I have been resid
ing, there will be found my book, 'ileums
de la Vierge,' holy volume, which remains
as it was when I took it with me at the time
of the emigration. I desire that these three
objects he divided into three lots.
" The first lot, the two hundred thousand
franks in money.
" The second lot, the chateau, furniture and
"The third lot, my book, lleures do la,
"I have pardoned my sister Anne the grief
which she has caused us, and would have com
forted her in her sorrows if I had known soon
er of her return to France. I compromise
her in my will.
" Madame de Villeboys, my much beloved
cousin, shall have the first choice.
" M. Vatry, my brother-in-law, shall have
the second choice.
" Anne will take the remaining lot."
"Ah ! ah !" said vatry, " Sister Egerie
was a good one ; that is clever on her part !"
"Anne will only have the prayer book !"
exclaimed Madame de Villebeys, laughing
aloud. The notary interupted her jocularity.
" Madam," he said, " which lot do you
" The two hundred thousand franks in mo
" Have you made up your mind ?"
" Perfectly so."
The , man of law addressing himself then
to the good feelings of the lady, said "Madame
you are rich and Anne has nothing. Could
you not leave her this and take the book of
prayers, which the eccentricity of the de
ceased has placed on a par with the other
lots ?"
"You must be joking, M. Dubois ?" ex
claimed Madame de Villeboys ; " you must
really be very dull not to see the intention of
Sister Egerie in all this. Our honored cousin
foreaw full well that her book of prayers
would fall to the lot of Anne, who had the
last choice."
" And what do you conclude from that ?"
inquired the notary.
" I conclude that she meant to intimate to
her sister that repentance and prayer were
the only hope she had to expect in this world."
As she finished these words, Madame de
Yilleboys made a definite selection of thc mo
ney for her share. Monsieur Vatry, as may
easily be imagined, selected the chateau, fur
niture and jewels as his lot.
"Monsieur Vatry," said M. Dubois to that
gentleman, " even suppose it had been the
intention of the deceased to punish her sister
would it not be noble on your part, million
aire as you are, to give up at least a portion
of your share Lo Anne, who wants it so much."
" Thanks for your kind advice, dear sir,"
replied - Izrtry ;- " the mansion is situated on
the very confines of the woods, and suits me
admirably, all the more so that it is ready
furnished. As to the jewels•of Sister Egerie,
they are reminiscences which one ought nev
er to part with."
. .-
" Since It is so," said the notary, " my poor
Madame Anne, here is the prayer book which
remains to you."
Anne, attended by her son, a handsoMe
boy with blue eyes, took her sister's old pray
er book, and making her son kiss it after her,
she said:
"Hector, kiss this book which belonged to
your poor Aunt, who is dead, but who would
have loved you well had she known you.—
When you have learned to read you will pray
to Heaven to make you wise and good as your
father was, and happier than your unfortu
nate mother,"
The eyes of those who were present were
filled with tears, notwithstanding their ef
forts to preserve an appearance of indiffer
The boy embraced the old book with boy
ish fervor, and opened it afterwards—
"Oh, mamma!" he said, " -what pretty pic
tures !"
" Indeed !" said the mother, happy in the
gladness of her boy.
"Yes. The good Virgin in a red dress,
holding the infant Jesus in her arms. But
why, mamma, has silk paper been put upon
the pictures 1"
" So that they might not be injured, my
But, mamma, why are there ten silk pa
pers to each ?"
The mother looked, and uttering a sudden
shriek, she fell into the arms of M. Dubois,
the notary, who, addressing those present,
said :
" Leave her alone ; it won't be much, peo
ple don't die of these shocks. As for you,
little one," addressing hector, " give me that
prayer book ; you will tear the engravings."
The inheritants wititdrew, making various
conjectures as to the cause of Anne's sudden
illness, and the interest which the notary
took in her. A month afterwards they met
Annie and her son, excedingly well, yet not
extravagantly dressed, taking an airing in a
two horse chariot. This led them to make
inquiries, and they ascertained that Mad
ame Annie had recently purchased. a hotel
for one hundred and eighty thousand frances,
and that she was giving a good education to
her son. The news came like a thunderbolt
upon them. Madame de Villeboys and M.
de Vatry hastened to call upon the notary to
ask for explanations. The good Debois was
working at his desk.
"Perhaps we are disturbing you" said the
arrogant old lady.
"No matter, I was in the act of settling a
purchase in the state funds of Madame Anne"
" What !" exclaimed Vatry, " after pur
chasing house and equipages, she has still
money to invest ?"
"Undoubtedly so."
"But where did the money come from ?"
"What did you not see ?"
"When ?"
" When she shrieked upon seeing what the
prayer book contained as her inheritage ?"
"We observed notheng."
"Oh I thought you saw it," said the sar
castic notary. "That prayer book contained
sixty engravings, and each engraving was
covered by ten notes of a thousand francs
"Good heavens !" exclaimed Vatry, thun
"If Iliad only known it !" shouted Ma-
dame de Villeboys.
" You had the choice," said the notary,
"and I myself urged you to take the prayer
book, but you refused."

The two baffled old egotists withdrew, their

" And for who else 1" inquired the child.
" For your father, your dear father who
perished without knowing you, without being
able to love you."
"Must I pray to the saint, my patron ?"
"Yes, little friend, but do not forget the
saint who watches us from heaven, and who
smiles upon us from above the cloods."
" What is the name of that saint, mamma,
dear ?"
The mother, then watering the fair child's
head with tears, answered :
"11cr name is—Sister Egerie."
Jlany years ago, when a boy of seven or
eight years there was one thing which I
longed for more than anything else, and
which I imagined would make me supreme
ly happy. it was a jack knife. Then I
would not be obliged to borrow father's ev
ery time I wished to cut a string or a stick,
but could whittle whenever I chose, and
whenever I pleased. Dreams of kites, bows,
and arrows, hoots, Sic., all manufactured
with the aid of that shining blade, haunted
me by day and night.
It was a beautiful morning in June, that
my father called me, and gave me leave, if
wished to go with him to the store. I was
delighted, and taking his hand, we started.
The birds sang sweetly on every bush, and
everything looked so gay and beautiful, that
ray heart fairly leaped for j by. After our
arrival at the village, and while my father
occupied. in purchasing sonic articles in a re
mote part of the store, my attention was
drawn to a man who was asking the price
of various jack-knives which lay on the coun
ter. As this was a very interesting subject
to me, I approached, intending only to look
at them. I picked one up, opened it, exam
ined it, tried the springs, felt the edge of the

Oh ! if it were only mine, thought I, how
happy I should be ! Just at this moment
happening to look up, I saw that the mer
chant had gone to change a bill for his cus
tomer, and no one was observing me. For
fear that I might be tempted to do wrong, I
started to replace the knife on the counter,
but an evil spirit whispered, ''Put it in your
pocket; quick !" Without stopping to think
of the crime or its consequence„ I hurriedly
slipped it into my pocket, and as I did so,
felt a blush of shame burning on my check;
but the store was rather dark, and no one
noticed it, nor did the merchant miss the
We soon started for home, my father giv
ing me a parcel to carry. As we walked
along, my thoughts continually rested on the
knife, and I kept my hand in my pocket all
the time from a sort of guilty fear that it
would be seen. This, together with carry
ing the bundle in my other hand, made it
difficult for me to keep pace with my father.
Ile noticed it, and gave me a lecture about
walking with my hands in my pocket.
Ah I how different were my thoughts then,
from what they were when passing the same
scenes a few hours before. The song of the
birds seemed joyous no longer, but sad and
sorrowful, as if chiding me for my wicked
act. I could not look my father in the face,
for I had been heedless of his precepts, bro
ken one of God's commandments, and be
came a thief. As these thoughts passed
through my mind, I could hardly help cry
ing, but concealed my feelings, and tried to
think of the good times I would have with
my knife. I could hardly say anything on
my way home, and my father thinking 1 was
either tired or sick., kindly took my burden,
and spoke soothingly to me, his guilty son.
No sooner did we reach home, than I retreat
ed to a safe place, behind the house, to try
the stolen knife. I had picked up a stick,
and was whittling it, perfectly delighted with
the sharp blade, which glided through the
wood almost of itself when suddenly I heard
the deep, subdued voice of my father, call
ing me by name, and on looking up, saw
him at the window directly over my head,
gazing down very sorrowfully at me. The
stick dropped from my hand, and with the
knife clasped in the other, I proceeded in the
house. I saw by his looks that my father
h a d divined all. I found him sitting in his
arm chair, looking very pale. I walked di
rectly to his side, and in a low, calm voice,
he asked me where I got the knife. Isis gen
tle manner and kind tone went to my heart,
and I burst into tears. As soon as my voice
would allow me I made a full confession.—
He did not flog me, as some father's would
have done, but reprimanded me in such a
manner, that, while I felt truly penitent for
the deed I loved him more than ever, and
promised never, never to do the like again.—
In my father,s company, I then returned to
the store, and on my knees begged the mer
chant's pardon, and promised never again to
take what was not my own.
My father is long since dead ; and never do
I think of my first theft, without blessing the
memory of him whose kind teaching and
gentle corrections have made it, thus far in
my life, and forever, my last.—ffoore's Ru

" Mornin' Squire," said a down-easter, giv
ing a nod and a wink to Lyman & Towle, as
those gentlemen stood in their store one morn
ing, " up and dressed" for business.
" How are you, sir ?" said the merchant.—
"Pooty well, considering the state of things
in general. I say, ycou sell skins here, don't
yeou ?"
" We do, occasionally, was the response.
" Wal, so I calculated ; but fox skins tew,

Ain't it ?"
" Seen liner ones," said Towle.
" Praps you have, and praps yeou paint ;
but I dew think it's a rale bewty, slick and
shiny as a bran new hat."
" When did you get this skin?" said the
"When did I get it?" Why, when I killed
the darned critter, of course.'
" Yes, we know, but was it in the fall or
summer, or when ?"
" 01 yes ; well I reckon 'twarnt far from
the Fourth of July, any way, for I'd just
cleaned up my old shootin'

on the glorious anniversary, and along comes
the old critter, and I just gave him a rip in
the gizzard that settled his hash mighty sud
den, I tell yeou."
" Fox skins," said the mercliint, "are not
very good when taken in hot weather ; the
fur and skin is very thin, and not fit for much
in summer."
" Wal, neow, I reckon since I come to think
it over, 'twarnt hot weaAber when I shot the

Towle. "Fat skins, sir, are not , so good as

An Indian Wedding.
The Nebraska City News of the 3d inst.
contains a long account of a marriage of a
Pawnee Chief to a blood royal squaw of the
Otoc tribe. The bridegroom was named
Whitewater, and the bride Wah-mush-pe
shinga. We extract the following ;.
The Chieftain's daughter Was elegantly
dressed in a red flannel shirt with deep blue
calico border, a checked apron, a summer
killed buffalo robe and a white felt hat.—
Her jewels were magnificent. From either
auricular depended bright ornaments of brass
tin and copper.
We must not omit to mention that Miss
Wah-mush-pe-shinga also wore a "red petti
coat," embroidered according to a design of
her own, with porcupine quills, represnting
a desperate dog fight. Her entire wadrobe
and jewelry could not have cost less than
six thousand dollars Fontenelle money.—
The bridgegroom was attired in all the mag
nificence which his rank and wealth e
manded. He wore a standing shirt collar, a
medic of President Pierce, a blue straight
collared soldier coat with brass buttons, and
an elegant pair of Spanish spurs, while his
stalwart loins were admirably clothed in an
ancient coffee sack. Altogether the appear
ance of both the bride and the groom was ap
propriate to their high sphere in life.
The most sumptuous feast awaited the
guestes at the residence of the bride's father.
It was spread in a, camp kettle and suspen
ded over the fire that burned in the centre of
that princely lodge. It consisted of young
dog meat very tender, blue corn, and old dog
meat, beaver tails, and mule steak, fresh fish,
and sugar, making altogether one of the most
palatable and nourishing compounds that ev
er graced a royal camp kettle. The horn
spoons of accidental luxury seldom conveyed
to the educated palate viands more tempt
ing and delicious. As for drinks, corn whis
key made of red peper, tobacco plugs and
rain_water, together with molasses, sweet- •
ened coffee, made up the list.
Among the distinguished persons present,
we did not fail to notice the six. Mesdames
