"Any objections to the country

you don't look 'real stout, yet I think
I can make you very useful about the

at her little "help," that "she didn't

Meanwhile the preparations for Miss

fifteen, and he's been out in the world
ever since ?"
"Is •he •a very old gentleman, Miss
Towers ?"„ innocently questioned Re
becca, as she rubbed away at the claw
foot of the antique pier table.
"Old !" eehoed Miss Towers, uplift.
ing both hands in amazement. "Wh - y,
he's ever se much younger than I am."
"Is he,?" asked Becky. "Why, I've
been fancying him, all along, an old
gentleman in a wig and cane."
Miss Towers burst into a fit of hear
"Well, if that don't beat all ?" she
cried, wiping the tears from under her
spectacle glasses. "But after all, to a
stranger that don't know the family

Rebecca—was sitting in the twilight
on the deer stone that evening, one
cheek resting on her baud, and her
eyes dreamily fixed on the far off .wall
of woods,.growing purple in the com

carry a basket of her ripest Wilson
strawberries to a sick neighbor, and
Becky was all alone, thinking over her
past, and pondering vaguely on her fu
" How strange it seems that I should
be here," she thought, "when it is
scarcely a year since I was the gayest
little butterfly in every city ball room !
The echoes of those old waltzes and
grlops come back to MO sometimes,
when I am just failing asleep with the
moonlight on my face, and the maple
leaves rustling softly at my open case

That is, I Should be, if I could only for

Oh, dear," and Becky's blue eyes swam
With tearsas she redieinbered the hand

Miss Towers. • i`‘Why,; Rebecca, you

"No--yes . —l . don't know. Let me

from the village poet.office, "I've got

with them, her cheeks dyed scarlet,

"Rebecca !" slowly enunciated Miss
in an accent betokening a sort
of mild displeasure.
But her tall companion, a man of
about thirty-five, with dark grey eyes,
hair black as raven's wing, and a face
which, if not handsome, bore the ex
quisite outlines of refinement, had has
tily passed her, and entered the room.
"Becky! my darling Becky !"
"Colonel Falconer!" was all the girl
could gasp, so totally bewildered was
she. "Bless my soul!" ejaculated
Miss Towers, rubbing her spectacles
as if she would wear a hole in the
crystal lenses; "how ever did Rebecca
get acquainted with my brother ?"
"I was engaged to be married to
him once, Miss Towers," said Becky,
coloring and smiling, for there was
something in Colonel Falconer's eyes
that told her all the past was in a fair
way to be forgiven.
"And she will be again, Eunice, un

An Example for Boys.
A notice of a death in last week's
Mercury brings again to mind a cir
cumstancelhat happened over twenty
years ago.• I was on an electioneer
ing excursion in Jo Davies county, 111.,
night overtaking me and being afraid
of getting into a mineral hole, I stop
ped at the first place offering, which
proved to bo the log house of a charcoal
burner. The good wife busied herself
in getting my supper whilst I took care
of my horse. In the morning after
breakfast (the man having gone to the
coal pit) I asked for my bill, but the
landlady refused to receive anything;
she sent her boy to the shed with me
to get my horse, and I concluded, as
she would take no pay, to give the
boy the dollar. The boy was less
than half grown, and wore a pair of
tow pants, notched about two inches
deep by wear around the bottom, a
Rhirt, of the same material sewed to
his pants, barefoot, a hat through the
crown of which his hair protruded,
and everything, including face, bands
and feet, tho color a charcoal burn
er's son would be, if not freshly wash
ed. The following day this lad, with
out any change of dress, and carrying
an earthen jug, minus a handle, by a
string tied around its neck came into
my office, the dollar in.band, saying he
wished me to buy him something with
it, as if it was known be had it would
be taken from hint to fill the jug next
I looked at him, thinking he would
want a hat or shoes, and asked him
what I should get with it. Ile an
swered that be wanted a slate, pencil
and an arithmetic, but did not know
whether his money would buy all. I
went out, got what he wished, and
rolling up.some paper and pens with
them gave them to him.
Many times after I noticed him
come into my office when a trial was
progressing, slip his jug under the
seat, cross his legs in front to keep it
out of sight, and listen for hours to
the lawyers. I lost Sight of him for
a season, until my son coming home
from Mount Morris Seminary, inform
ed me ho was there going to school.—
When next I heard from him was af
ter I came to California; he was a
partner of a lawyer I knew in Galena.
The next I noticed was in an Illinois
paper that he was a Douglass Elector ;
then after that he had gone South in
the' army. '
I afterwards saw a dispatch from
him that we had taken Vicksburg,
signed by him as Adjutant General,
he being then on Grant's staff. I now
see by your last week's paper that
the Secretary of War is dead. And
this Secretary, of War was the boy
with the tow cloth' breeches. Who
could fail to lot() a country whose
workings will allow the most obscure
to attain the highest positions? So
young too ! What might ho not have
reached, had his life been prolonged
to a ripe old age ? One object in not
ing this, was for the encouragement
of the young. Boys, if this boy with
opportunities certainly less than most
of you, could accomplish so much, why
not you ? T.
THE CLOSE OF THE WEER.-A week.
It is but a short' time indeed, but Re ,
events are a host. To•wbom has the
week just closed brought joy 1 to whom
sorrow ? to whom riches? to whom
poverty? to whom friends? to whom
health? to whom happiness?
What; all these changes in one week?
Yes, and a host more numerous than
the sands of the sea. Many who see
the dawn of the present week.will be
in another world ere it 'closes; many
whom fortune smiled upon a week ago,
are groaning beneath the 'withering
frowns of poverty; many who were
floating gently on the bark,of ,life o'er
the Unruffled sea of happiness, a week
ago are now wrecks of ruin on the
shores of affliction ; many upon whom
the sun of last Sabbath shone propiti
ously, have ere this met with ill for
tune and been turned upon the world
children of poverty, and many whose
hopes and expectations were beaming
forth bright and prosperous, are at its
close the miserable beings of cruel dis.
Arad such is the life of man ! It is
subject to changes in a week, a 'day;
nay; oven ao hour. The world is' still in
commotion revolution succeeding
revolution—time spreading its pro
gress, leaving behind traces of destruc
tion.; and even in a small community
many ,thrilling and exciting ,circum
stances might be summed up and re
,corded at the doge of each week:
