"-khan Ben Adhein (may his tribe increase)
Awoke one night from a deep dream of pence,
And saw within the moonlight in his room,
Making it rich and-like a till}
An angel writing inn hook of gold;
Exceeding peace had mode Ik n Adhetn hold,
And to the. presence in the fount, ho said,
'Mat writcst thou': The vision raked its head,
And with a look made or all sweet accord,
Answered, 'The manes of those who love the Lord'
'And is mine one' said Abon, Nay, not so,'
Replied the angel. Almon spnke more low,
But cheerty still, anti said, ^f pray thee, then,

"Visitors!" exclaimed Kate Bennett, im
patiently, as she laid aside the book she bad
been reading, awl in which she had been
deeply interested, and tonic the cards,
"Dear me, how provoking! Just as I
am in the most exciting part of the story—
and that pert, disagreeable Emily Archer,
too," she added, reading ono of the cards;
"who else I wonder?"
IVas there magic in that simple bit of
pasteboard, inscribed only with tho two
words "Richard Warren?" It would al
most seem so, so instantaneously did her
countenance change. The frown 'that bad
Ilisfigurod her , -beautiful brow disappeared,
her -eyes fparkled, without apotisreiliotiklit

exceptionable, and left the room.
As she entered the drawing-room, and
greeted her guests with all that grace and
elegance of manner for which she was dis
tinguished, Emily Archer surveyed ber with
one rapid, critical glance; but dress, as well
as manner, was faultless.
"It must be confessed that Kate 'Rowlett
enters a room like a queen," she thought,
With a pang of envy and jealousy, as in
Riehard Warren's thee she read undisguised
admiration of the lovely girl before them.
What casual observer, who had marked
the meeting of these young ladies, would
have dreamed that, under all their outward
friendliness, each hated the other with her
whole heart?
Yet so it was. sate and Emily were ri
val belles, and their claims to admiration
were so equally ballaneed that it required uo
little exertion ou either side to gain the as
cendency v,nd be acknowledged the victor.
If Kate, with her classical features, queen
ly dignity, elegant figure, awl exquisite
taste, at first sight threw her rival into the
shade, Emily's piquant style, sparkling, an
imated countenance, and sprightly conver
sation, were by many preferred to Kate's
statuesque beauty. It was impossible to
decide which was the loveliest; each had
her adherents and admirers, but as they
were equally numerous, it seemed probable
that the season would draw to a close with
out the all important decision of the ques
tion, which had been par excellence, the
Just at this time, Richard Warren return
ed from Europe. The arrival of so unde
niably elegant, handsome, and wealthy a
gentleman, was an event—all the fashiona-
ble world was in a flutter, and the rivals saw
at once that the important epoch had ar
rived. She whose claim he advocated,
whom he favored with his admiration,wouhl
at once stand upon the precarious pinnacle
of belleship. Each left nothing undone to
win him to her side, though their: tactics
were entirely different.
Emily brought to boar upon him the bat
teries of her sprightly wit, while Kate adroit
hy laid the mine of apparent queenly indif
ference. As yet, though it was evident
that Richard admired both, his preferencO
was not known—perhaps he hardly knew
himself which he , thought the most charm
But during this exposition of the claims
of the rivals, a lively conversation had been
discussed, as well as some of their mutual
friends, and in the midst of some wickedly
witty remarks of Emily on a -would-be-fash
ionable lady, a loud voice was heard in the
hall. It came nearer the door, and the
words could tfi. distinctly understood:
"You no-brained, impudent jackanapes,
I'll teach you manners, I'll make you laugh
on eother side of your mouth!"
Tho door was flung open, and in walked
a tall, athletic and sunburnt young man,
whose really fine form was disguised in an
ill-fitting suit of evidently domestic manu
facture, and who stood off for a moment
awkwardly looking around him, then, hastily
approaching Kate, ho flung his arms around
her, and gave her a loud smack on the

had foreseen, to ridicule the scene they had

Much vulgar relationt," continued Emily,
well-knowing that tho fastidious Richard
Warren would consider this a. serious objec
tion in the woman of his choice.
"Notwithstanding all Kate Bennett's el
egance there is a certain something about
the family that betrays low blood,"
"Yes," returned Warren, hardly knowing
what lie sahl; and feeling that she hail gain
ed one point, Emily- talked on, in the best
possible spirits, internally triumphing over
the discomfiture of her rival.
That evening at the opera, who should be
at Kate's side but cousin Ben, dressed in
excellent taste, and evidently nine)/ interest
ed in the performance, while Miss Bennett
listened with polite attention to his frank
and sensible criticisms. At parties, too, he
was rather attendant; and this open ac
knowledgement of her relation quite blunted
the point of Emily's satires. Mr. Bennett
assisted the youth to a sitaation, and very
speedily his rusticity wote off. lie had
both good looks and good sinse, and under
his cousin's judicious trilning ho very
soon did her no discredit, ven among the
crowd of fine gentlemen I vint surrounded.
Emily Archer saw all,l and hit her lip
with vexation. She could of but acknowl
edge the superiority of Kit s strategy, and
that she.bad triumphed in the event which
she had hoped would humiliate her.
From that time Ilichardrarren was her
constant attendant and ere! one he had cc
knowledged his preference by offering her
his heart and hand.
".3fy dear Kate," he sall, shortly after
their betrothal, "I shall neier cease to thank
cousin Ben for giving me lily bride. I ad
mired yon as a belle, butiltis coining and
your reception of hint, proved that you were
something better than mosi young ladies."
Kate smiled one of her Most bewitching
smiles.. (

said, "whatever I ashy do its future."

A very laughable circumstance is said to /
have occurred in Albany, daring a session ;
of the Legislature at the Capitol, several(

of duelling by statute in that State.

"friend," as such a messenger is called in

The challenge was at once accepted.
Pleased with bis promptness, the second
said: "When can we expect your friend?"
"Don't want any friend," said the chal

"This is magnanimous but it is not accord

"Day after to-morrow at 32 o'clock at

"At what place?"

Hoary Ward Beecher, in u recent lecture,
"I may here, as well as anywhere, impart
the secret of what is. called good luck and
Lad luck, There are men who supposing
Providence to have an implacable spite
against them, bemoan in poverty to a
wretched old age the misfortune of their
lives. Luck forever ran against them and
fur others.
"Oae with a good profession, lost his luck
in the river, where he idled away his time

which provoked all his employees to leave

lost his luck by amazing diligence alt every
thing but his business. Another. Avho

anal constant at his work, erred by perpet

Hundreds lose their luck by endorsing; by
sanguine speculations; by trusting fraudu
lent men,—and Ly dishoneq gain.. A man
never has good luck who has a bad wife. I
never knew an early-rising, hard-working,
prudent man, careful of his earnings, and
strictly honest, who complained of bad luck.
A good character, good habits and iron in
dustry, are impregnable to the assaults of
nit the ill luck that fouls ever dreamed of.—
but when I see a tatterdemalion creeping
out of at grocery late in the forenoon, with
his hands stuck into his pockets, the rim of

There is no greater mistake that a busi

business—always taking the half cent for
the dollars he has made and is making.—
Such a policy is like the farmer who sows
three pecks of seed when he 'ought to have
sown five, and as a recompense for his
meanness of soul, only gets ten 'when he
ought to have got fifteen bushels of grain.—
, FAery body has heard the proverb of "penny

There are people in the world who are
short-sighted enough to believe that their
interests can be best promoted by grasping,
and clinging to all they can get, and never
let it cent slip through their fingers. A s a
general thing it will be found, other things
being equal, that he who is most liberal is
most successful in business. Of course we
do not mean it to be inferred that a man
should be prodigal in his expenditures, but
that be should show to his customers, if he
is a trader, or to those whom ho may be do

Faith is the starting point of obedieriCin
but what I want is, that you start impact'',
ately—that you wait not fot: more light to
spiritualize your obedience, but that you
work for more tight, by yielding a present
obedience up to the present light which you
profess—that you stir up all the gift which
is now in you; and this is the way to have
' the gift enlarged, that whatever your right
baud fiudeth to do in the way of service to
God, you now do it with all your might.—
And the very fruit of doing - of his authority,
is that you trill at length do it because of
your own renovated taste. As you perse
vere in the labors of His service, you will
grow in the likeness of Ills character. The
graces of holiness will both brighten and
multiply upon you. These will be your
treasures, and treasures fur heayspi,too—thc
delights of which mainly consist in theaffoc
tions and feelings, and congenial employ
ments of the new creature.—Dr. C7m/nter.t.
The Christian does net serve God for hap
piness, but God by a sublime necessity has
attached happiness to his service. Along
the ranks of his army goes the command to
rejoice; above it floats the banner of love.—
Felieity is the light which rests over it all.
From the helmets of the seraphim that light
is flashed back in full unclouded blaze; on
us of the human race, who, as Isaac Taylor
says beautifully, "seem to stand almost on
the estreme confines of happiness," its first
rays arc even now descending. happiness
is the spheral music in which a God, whose
name is Love, has ordained thaf holiness
must voice itself; his light, as it sweeps over
the zEolian harp of immensity, kindling
every dead world into beauty, breaks forth
in the Memnonian anthem ofjoy.
In a late article in Prazier's Magazine
this brief but beautiful passage occurs:
"Education does not commence with the
alphabet. It begins with a mother's look—
with a father's smile of approbation, or a
sign of reproof—with a sister's gentle pres
sure% of the hand, or brother's noble act df
forbearance--with hands full of flowers in
green and daisy meadows—with bird's nests
admired but not touched—with creeping
ants and almost imperceptible emmets..--
with humming bees and glass beehives—
with pleasant walks in sandy lanes, with
thoughts directed in sweet and kindly tone.,
and words to mature to acts of benevolence,
to deeds of virtue, and to the source of all
good, to God himself,"
The great thing to be attended to in
prayer, that which is the very essence of it,
is reality! Every sentence must be the ve
hicle of truth. All falsehood is wicked:
never is it so wicked as in prayer. The
terance of lies, direct in the face of God and
truth, is the very climax ofiniquity. As the
Searcher of hearts, he "desires truth in the

of truth, by whom actionsare weighed," and"
