The Clock at Tangle's.

brethren of the List, prohibit the, Chistian and the
Jew from entering ajmnsque or other plz.ces con

death, or embracing the faith of Islam. A droll

The clock at .the "Daman Jleeber," - tho g; ea
mosque at Tangier, being mac oat of order, need
ed some skilful craftsman to repair it. None how
ever, of "faithful" were competent to the task, nor
could they even discover what part of the machi
viery.vras deranged; though many put forth their
opinions with great pomp and authority; among.
the rest one gravely declared that a Jin, or evil
'genius had in all probability taken up its abode
xyithin the clock. Various exorcisms were accord
ingly essayed sufficient, as every true believer sup
posed, to have expelled a legion of devils—yet,
all in vain; the clock continued dump.
A Christian clotk-maker, " a cursed Nazarine,"
was now the sole resource; and such a one for
tunately was sojourning in Tangier—" the city pro-
tected of the Lord!' lie was from Genoa, and of
course a most pious Christian : bow, then, were
they, the faithful followers of the prophet, to mati
nee to employ him 1 The clock was fixed in the
wall of the tower, and it was of course, a thing
impossible to allow the Vatter.. To defile God's
House of prayer by his sacrilegious steps.
The time-keeper, Moakkeed, reported the diffi
culty to the kady ; and so perplexed the-grey-bear
ded dealer in law and justice by the infticacy of
the case, after hours of deep thought, the judge
.confessed he could not come to a decision, and
proposed to report upon the subject to the kaid,
advising that a meeting of the iocal authorities
should be called. " For, in truth," said the kady,
'I perceive that the urgency of this matter is great.
Yes! I myself will expound our dilemma to the
The kaki entered feelingly into all the difficulty
of the case, and forthwith summoned the other
authorities to his porch, where carious propositions
were put forward by the learned members of the
One proposed to abandon the clock altogether:
another would lay down boards over scilich the
infidel might pass without touching the. sacred
floor; but this was held not to be a sufficient safe
guard; and it was.finally decided to pull up that
pert ofthe pavement on which the Kailer toxl, and
whitewash the walls near which he passed.
The Christian was now sent for, and told what
was required LA him ; and he Was expressly corn
mantled to take oil his shoes and stockings on en
tering the Jaman. " That I won't," said the stout
Lute watch-maker; "I never took them off when
l:entered the chapel ol the most Holy Virgin, - and
here he crossed himself devoutly, " and I won t
take them off in the house of your prophet.
They mimed in their hearts the watch-maker and
all his race, and were in a state of vast perplexity.
The wise Oolama had met early in the morning
it was already noon, and yet, so far from having
got over their difficulty, they were in fact exactly
where they had been before breakfast; when a
grey-bearded :Sluedilin, vrlo'',hatl„littlierto been si
lent, craved permission to speak. The kaiJ and
the kady noddedltheir assent.
" the venerable priest, "the mosque
be out of repair, and lime and'bricks have to be
conveyed into the interior for the use of the ma
sons, do not asses carry those loads, and do they
not enter with their shoes on !..

A lad was toiling rip a hill, near the city, antler
the weight of a heavy basket ; on the afternoon of a
sultry day in August. Ile had been sent home with
some goods to a customer, who lived a short dis
tancc in the country. The boy was lightly built,
and his burthen almost beyond his strength. Ma
ny times he sat down to rest himself on his way up
the hill. But it seemed as Uho would never reach
the summit. Each time he lifted the basket it
seemed still heavier.
The boy was about half-way up the bill, with
his basket, when a gentleman overtook and passed
him. He had no' gone on many paces, when he
stopped, and turning rtnind to the lad, looked at
him for a moment or two, and -said kindly—
" That's a heavy load you have, my boy ; come
let me help you.", . •
And the gentleman look the basket, and carried
it to the top of the hill
"Pliere—do you think you can get along now ?"
said he with a smile, as he set the basket down.—
" Or shall f carry it a little further?"
' "Oh no, thank you sir," returned the boy with
a glow of gratitude on his tine young face. "lean
carry it now— very much otitiged to you."
"You are right welcome, my little man," said
the gentleman, and passed on.
Twenty years from that 'time, a careworn man,
well advanced in life, sat motionless in an old arm
chair, with his eyes fixed intently upon the glow.
mg grate. lie was alone, and appeared to be in a
state of deep abstraction. In a little while, howev
er, the door of the room opened, and the light form
of a young and lovely girl glided in.
Papa," said a low sweet voice, and a hand was
laid on the old man's arm.
6 it you, my dear I" he returned, with a low
" Yes, papa," and the young girl leaned against
him, and parted with her delicate fingers, the thin
grey locks that lay in disorder Shout his forehead.
‘•t would like to be alone for this evening, Flo
rence," slid the old man. " I have a good deal to
think about, and expect a person on business."
- Ant! he kissed her tenderly ; yet , sighed as he
pressed his lips to hers.
The girl passed from the room as noiselessly as
she had entered. The old man had been calm be
fore; her coming in, but the moment she retired, he
became agitated, and arose and walked the floor
uneasily. He continued to pace to and tro for near
ly half an hour, when he stopped suddenly and
listened. The street door-bell had rung. In al:t
ile while a man entered the room.

" Mr. Page," lett:trued the old man, with a fee
ble, quick-fialie.g smile. "Good morning," and he
offered his hand.
The visitor grasped the hand and shook it warm
ly—but no pre• re in return.
'•Sit down, ltr. Pag,e,' and the man took a
chair, and Mr. 11 awn sat near him. 1:1..
" You promised me an answer to-night to my
proposal, - said the former, after a pause.
" 1 did," returned the old• man; " but am as little
prepared to givd it as I was yesterday. .in fact, I
have not fond an opportunity to say anything to
Florence on the subject to which you allude.
The countenance of the visitor tell, and some
thing like a frown darkened his brow.
There was an embarrassing silence of some mill-
Ines, after which Mr. Pate said—
." Mr. Mason, I have made an honorable propo
sal for your daughter's band. For weeksyou have
evaded, and do still evade an answer. This seems
se much like tritljeg, that I begin to feel as if just

Mason, with something deprecating his tone.--
" But, you must remember ; Mr. I'age, that you

" A child never loved a parent more tenderly,

" Give her, then m an undisguised history of your

bat one hope of relief and safety left. The day she

that had been said:

with 'some impatience in his tone.
Mason aroused himself as from a dream, and
answered with firmness and kliznity.
'• Mr. Eve, the struggle in my mind is over. 1
am prepared for the worst. I have no idea that
Florence will favor your suit, and I will not use a
single argument to influence her. In that mater
she must be perfectly free. Approach heras a man,
and win her if.yon have the power to' do so. It is
your only . hope."
*As if stung by a serpent, Page started from his

Mr. Mason ventured no reply, bat merely bow

after his angry visitor hart retired, did Mr. Mason
cross and re-cross the floor with measured

When Florence came she was surprised to see
that her father was 'strongly agitated.
" Sit down, dear," he said in a trembling voice,
"I have something to say to you that muse be no
longer concealed.."
Florence looked won.!eringly into her father's
face, and her heart began to sink:
Just then a servant opened the door and ushered
in a stranger. He was a tall, finely formed man
just in the prime of lite. Florence tinieltly retired
but not before the visiter had filed his eyes upon
her face, and marked its sweet expression. •
" Pardon this intrusion sir," he said, as soon as
the young girl had left the room, " but facts that I
have learned this evening have prompted me to
call upon you withoni a moment's delay. My
name is Greer, from the firm of Greer, Millet &
Mr. Mason bowed and said : " I know your
house very well ; and now - retnembiri to have met
you more than once in business transactions."
" Yes, you have &ought one or two bills of gooils
from us," replied the visitor. Then, after a mo
ment's pause he said, in a changed voice—
" Mr. Mason, I learned to-night, from 'a sourre
which leaves me no room to doubt the truth of the
statement, that your atlairs have become seriously
embarrassed; that you are, in fact, on the eve of
bankruptcy. Tell me, frankly, whether this is in
deed so. I ask fror no idle curiosity, nor from a
Concealed and sinister motive, but to the end that!
may t tirevent the threatened disaster, if it is iu my
power to do so.",
Mr. Mason was dumb with surprise at so unex
pected a declaration. He made two or three ef
forts to speak, but his lips uttered no sound.
" Confide in me, sir," urged his visitor. " Trust
me as you would trust your own brother, and lean
upon me if your strength be failing. Tell me, theu

" It is," was all the merchant could utter.

"Then let your anxiety subside; Mr. Mason.—
That sum you shall have. To-mormw uriorning 1

was gone before his hew ilderea auditor had suffi
ciently recovered 14 to know what to dank
or say.
In the morning, true to his promise, Mr. Greer
called upon Mr. Masou, anti tendered a check for
ten thousand dollars, with his note of hand for thir
ty days for the ten thousand more, which was al
most the same as money.
While the check and note lay before him on the
desk, and ere he bud offered to touch them, Mr.
Mason looked earnestly at the man who had so
suddenly taken the character of a self-sacrificing
friend, and said—
"My dear sir, I cannot understand this. Are
you not laboring tint,ler some error!" •
"Oh no. Yon one did me a service that I am
now only seeking to repay. It is my first opportu

" Did you a service ! When V
'Twenty years ago,'' replied the man. I was a
poor boy, and you were a - man of wealth. Oue hot
day, I was sent a long distance with a heavy bas
ket. While toiling op a hill, with the hot sun upon
me, and almost overcome with heat and fatigue,
you came along and not only spoke to me kindly,
but took my baskeyand carried it to the top of the
hill. Ah. sir ! you did not know how deeply that
act of kindness sunk - into my heart, and I longed
for the opportunity to show you by some act how
g,ratelul 1 felt. But none came. Often atierwards,
did I-meet you in the street, and look in your face
with pleasure, but you did not remember me. Ec-
er since, I have regarded you wits different feel
ings from those I entertained for otheis; and there
has been no time that I would not have put myself
out to serve you. The rest you know.
Mr. Mason was astonished at so Amnge a decla

Greer. " I was a weak boy. just sinking under a
burden that was too heavy, when you put birth

it. And now let me return the favor, at the first
opportunity, by carrying your burden fin you, which

Mr. Mason was deeply moved. Words failed
him in his eflorts to express his true feeling*. The

many days, and be gagered it with wonder and

How earth's foundation first began,
Of The Great Author of the plan,
That worlds majestic 'round us move.
Of all we see that's here on earth,
The mighty power that gave them birth,
Thtt spate the word and all came forth
Sure this was God, and God is love.
Ite hold the sun with rays so bright
The lunar moon that rules The night,
And stars that glow with twinkling light,

Bee man a noble being made
In Gods own image thus array'd,
And though from virtue far bath stray'd
Vet his Creator God is love.
That God is love his works declare,
Above, around, and everywhere.
His word and works, most perfect are,
Consummate wisdom from above.
Still greater love G 641 did proclaim
When Jesus ChristAo mortals came,
From sin and mis'ry to reclaim,
Behold what mercy, God is love.
'Tis oft I hear with solemn tone
That God is true, and there is one
ho deals out vengance from his, throne,
Eternal in the worlds above.
Though angry priests of vengeance sing
And thus blaspheme their heavenly King,
A nobler tribute man should bring,
And vindicate that God is love.
This earth is but man's shore abode.
And here should learn to praise his God
But sip will make him feel the rod,
Tis.justice sent down from'abore.

That we may learn, our ways to mend,
And nerer more on sin depend,
For God is just, and God is love.
Bin is to man his greatest foe
And bath its wages here below
It makes this world a world of woe,
And robs us of our peace above.
But virtue hath ten thousand charms
It brings us peace without alarms,
And ev'ry evil it disarms,
And thus proclaims that God is love.
Sin makes as groan and frar to die
And is the only reason why
We do not see a God on high.
To call as op to Heaven above.
Since all the resurrection share,
Made as the Holy Angels are,

For our Creator God is lore.
When death shall send his $0111113011.3 forth.
And separate us from this earth
0 then our souls shall take their birth,
In glorious mansions far above.
There shall me see our Saviour's face,
And praise him for redeeming grace
And the great whole Adamic race
Shalt shout aloud that God_ is love.
This earthly hon.e if once dissolv'd
In sin no mire to be involv'd
A better house we have resolv'd

All ..ouls alike God's love shall share
Be free from pain and mis'ry there
And awed where Holy AnZeis are,
And join the song that God is love. •
The lame shall walk, the blind shall see,
The-captive there have liberty,
From sin and death shall ail be free,
In harmony each soul shall move.
All tears shall there be wip'd away
Nor shall a soul from God e'er stray
Bat onward dwell eternal day
In rearms of bliss where God is love.

In 1835 the perfect of Canton, on occasion of-la

chart, issues this inviting summons. /Since for_ a
long time there has been no rain, and the prospects

after the rain has fallen, I will liberally reward him

as a ,4 rain -maker," and the prefect erected an al
tar for him before his own offire, upon which the
man ; armed with a cymbal and Wand, for three
days vainly repeated his incantations from mor

The unsuccessful efforts of the priest did o r ot ren

necessities led the peel le to resort to every espe

ties forbade the slaughter of animals— or, in other
words, a fast was proclaimed. To keep the hot
winds out of the city the S.outhem gate was shut,
and all Classes flocked to the temples. It was *es

celebrated shrine of the godess of Mercy, among
whom were the governor and prefect and their
suites, who all left the sedans and walked with
the multitude: The governor, as a last expedient

of liberaiog all prisoners not charged with capital
offences. As soon as the rain fell, the people pre

his attendants to pat a rope around "his neck and
haul his godship out of doors, that he mutt see and

this treatment considered to be fully proved by the
copious showers which soon after fell.
