EIGTASOLED tiiiip.--Not long ago, a friend
antl'myself were walking through an orchard.
when our attention was attracted by the loud and
incessant chirpinge of ,a pair of house sparrows.
which kept fluttering over the top of an old ivy.
covered tree. So peculiar were their notes, that
we at once conjectured that they were in dstress,
and watche.l them for some. time with much inter

there continued Ballerina for sometime Our. cu
!Kathy being elicited, we reburied and climbed up
the tree. vilien we found in the blanch of ivy before
rewired to, a young bird hanging -over the nest,
rt suspended by its leg. Its loot had been entangled
in the hair and other materials of the nest, and there
the little prisoner was chained. From the fact of
its being full-grown and feathered, we presume
that-it must have been a captive fur marry days and
- nights, and that the old birds mdet have watched
and fed it with care. Tn its simples to
cape. the entangled leg had be c ome much lacera

great pain: Its .cornpanion nestlings had flown,
and left the little captive to endure a painful fate.—
But the solicitude. May not humanity leant some
thing from the crimple of the two house sparrows!
It gave us much,pleasttre to eel the little prisoner

" I hope we shall manage to put Edward to a

glirvely ; though, as to the tuition of the girls, I
think you must still be contented to act the part of
a mother towanls them. And permit me to say,
that I trust your desire of going to London is as
vtgionary as your expectation of a legacy. Your
happiness does not depend on either event, I should
imagine ; certainly not near so much as on the cul
tivation of a cheerful and contented sprit, such as
you have always hitherto exhibited."
No mme was said on the subject, and Mr lien
dencir trusted that, as the lust excitement of this
intelligence subsided, his wife's inclination to dis
c..ntent would like Wise die away, and that she
would gradually resume the use of her reason and
her habits of active usefulness.

The inheritor or this unexpected legacy, mean
time, did not view•the affair in the bright miens
that dazzled 61st. Henderson. On the contrary, he
had marry and serious thoughts, on the subject. He
was at the fine moment, it is true, much pleased
with this sudden accession of property, but when
he came tO consider the matter, he experienced a
great revulsion of feeling ; and be began to doubt
whether he was so lucky a man as his acquaint-
times iinivecially denominated him. It was, after
all. so Small a sum--tinly six thousand pound's—it
would to his income Cr increase his
credit. Why had. it not been ten ihonsandl He
would. he thought. have been quite satisfied With
that ; that would have been a handsome legacy, a
:-omething worth talking about, a gilt to be grate
ful for Perha,rs, hail it been ten thousand, he
might have risen a step in the world, and from se
nior clerk of the exienz.ive firm to which he be-
longed, ne might have been admitted as partner; a
change which he ardently desired. Why could
not his cousin have made the legacy larger ? How
pro;►oking that, eithir from •% ant of in erect in his
wedare, or from any other cause, he had stopped
*-noit of .a som which would certainly have procur
ed him, as he imagined, perfect happiness.

Mr. Andrews and Mr. Henderson were eterksin
the tame aancem p bat the former, both in t wain' to
and _income, was considerably the seniorom&Mrs.
Henderson had long been accustomed to eye with
something approaching to envy the superior cOm
torts and even elegancies which Mrs. Andrews en-
joyed. Not that there was anything approaching
to cenentatmo in their manner of living; and in
truth most of the indulgenciee which Mrs. Hender
son commented len orcoveted were purchased from
the comfurtable portion which Mrs. Andrews had
inherited from her lather. It was this which ena
bled them to send their eldest son to a superior
school, and it from this fund that the. excellent go
verness was paid, who shared with the mother the
task of educating a numerous sad increasing lami
ly. That people already possessed
. 01 so much
should inherit more, seemed an unnecessary addi
tion, and almost an unfair division of worldly goods
to the jealous apprehension of Mrs. Henderson.—
But had she known the truth, her envy most have
subsided into pity. From the possession of that
fatal legacy was the wife forced to date a melan
choly and most distressing alteration in her bus•
band: his whole nature seemed changed, and ev
ery honorable, generous, and even affectionate
feeling appeared smothered in a passion lot gain.
Quickly to accumulate the (leaned capital was his
.thought by day, his dream by night; and to accel
erate this object, he tried in every possible way to
curtail all expenses not strictly unavoidable. Grad
ually, but surely, Mrs. Andrews found herself de
prived of numerous trifles which her delicate health
seemed to require: their household was diminish
ed, subscriptions to charities withdrawn, their
pleasant and commodious •house exchanged for a
cheaper abode in a less healthy situation; and
when it appeared that it was of too much contract
ed dimensions to receive them all, she was told
that she must therefore give up the governess. By
degrees the whole expenses of the household were
reduced to the sum which was in truth her own,
and her husband was not tb be prevailed on to ex-
tend its limits or idiow her to touch his salary.—
Had honor, honesty, or prudent:a dictated this pro-
ceeding, Mrs. Andrews would have submitted
without a remonstrance; her zeal in economy
would 'liken have exceeded his; but to feel herself
and her children deprived of those advantages to
which they had been accustomed from birth, only
to/gratify a fatally increasing disease of her hue
band's mind, was bitter. Bnt bitterer far was the
loss of his affection and confidence—the painful
coldness which had insensibly grown up between
them. It was after a few years of such •a system
that a new prospect was suddenly opened, in an
offer of a partnership from another and a rival
house. The prospect was altar:lig in every re
spect, the concern was supposed to be peculiarly
flourishing, and the terms in which it was made
were as flattering as they were advantageous.—

creditors, he looked around for employment to

Mr. Walker's house and here he began the world
again as at the first.

his earthly happiness continues vivid in his re

him hail the hour which sees his purpose SEEM
plished, at d his face tamed towards home; it com
munes with him as he jmnneys, and he heats the
promise Which causes him to hope—" Thou shalt
know also that thy tabernacle shall be in peace, and
not sin." Oh the joyful reunion of a divided fain'.

the man of trade—what reconciles him to the toil
of business!—what enables him to endure the fast
idiousness and impertinence of customers f—what
rewards him for so many hours of *lona confine

When the Mormons settled in Missouri in 1833,
an enthusiastic young man named Mills was their
most popular and admired preacher. Indeed so
great was his fame that whenever he held meek..
dugs a crowd of the saints were sure to be present.
A strong and violent body of lynchers was about
this time organized to put down the Mormons, under
the command of Colonel Turke—on. of the most
dangerous men that Missouri, or in truth, any other
country, ever produced.. Some of the Mormons
were tarred and feathered, some were' scourged
with long knotty hickories, till they - fainted from the
excess of torture and the loss of blood. l -others were
forcibly deprived of their property, and reduced in
a day to thicondition of began—while others atill
shared a doom of moreinerey and were shot down
on the praire like so many wolves. At last Turke
resolved to take some of the conceit out of the
young preacher Mills, and he gave notice to his
men accordingly.
It was a dreadful cold night„in mid-winter, 11133,
and although the sky was cleaning, and the f9l
moon shone out in all her-splendor,. the, ea;th lay
in that Freely radiance, chill and dreary ass frozen '
tomb; for a thick sheet of snow crusted itsfurface,
and the north wind howled over its dismal dirge.
ft was a night to drive oven thieves and outlaws
into barns and stables for shelter, and to keep-hon
est people by tholgazeof their !mu tossing health..
And p 1 sump saYvis i large log-cabin,

then fret" from shore to shore, at least one him
dred'peo* had assembled tohold a religious mee
ting. They were Mormons, youi may be sure.—
No Genetics of old faith would ha le turned out on
each a night ; they most be besfizealots, with some
new idea, bat at its birth in their hearts, and Rant
ing like a meteor in their imaginations, or they
never conbilavetentured to face such an icy blast
as that: Thecongregation irtcluded men and wo
men in about equal numbers, and many of the for
Trier carried 'rifles, which they grasped with one
hand; Sven when kneeling down in prayer; such,
was the imminence of peril, either real or Win
bury, as they deemed pending over them.
The preacher-4e enthusiast, liills..had ad
vanced to a thrilling head of his eloquent discourse,
and was paintingin horrible fire-laniptage the bitter
persecution which has ever followed the footsteps
of all great reformers since the beginning of time.

On rushed the pursuer—on, still on, like , en . av
alanche. The noise of his iron skates could be
heard abate ti e " roar atthe northern blast, end his
dark fano twined irr the glittering moonbeams,
large in stature as a ,giant. As he drew nearer,
the young preacher smiled venomously. He rec

river like the wild scoff of some demon, when he
saw the other noshes/tit his gleaming knife. Mills
then immediately pilled his ;own from its scabb•

and the wrathful wind howled on, while theirman
counts and nights somehow carried thrint farther
down the river, where the crusted ice was thinner,
and cracked fearfully beneath their tread.
Finally, the Mormon took the &Smote - resolve
