JOHN WALTON'S REVENGE
"Be off from here you little beg.
gars !" said Oscar Ronalds, imperi.
The speaker was a well-dressed boy
of fourteen, and the words were ad
dressed to a boy about' his own age
and his sister of eight. The contrast
between their outward appearance
was striking. Oscar was of a light
complexion, and looked like a petted
child of the aristocracy. He held a
dab in his hand, which it might be
judged from his scowling face, he wo'd
not be unwilling to use.
John Walton, who confronted him
without fear, was a stouter boy than
Oscar. His complexion was. dark,his
hair, black as a raven's wing, hung
over his forehcail . His clothing was
coarse and well worn ; his pants were
tucked up nearly to his knees, and
shoes and stockings were luxuries
which he dispensed with. His little
sister, terrified by Oscar's rade man
ner, clung to her brother in affright.
" Don't be scared of him, Lizzie,"
said John, "he won't dare to touch
" Won't I though ?" said Oscar
clutching his stick tighter.
" Not if you know what is beSt for
yourself," said John, looking fixedly
"Yon have no business here, you
beggars," said Oscar, furiously.
" I'm no beggar," said the bare
footed boy; proudly.
"This is my father's land, can you
deny that ?" demanded Oscar,
"I know it is, and I suppose it will
be yours some day."
" Then why have you intruded
" I did not suppose it would do any
berm to pick a few berries, which
otherwise decay on the vines."
" Then you know it now. I don't
care:for the berries, but I don't want
any beggar's brats on my father's
" Stop there, young master," said
John, firmly. " Yon called me a beg-
gar, and I did not care pinch .; but if
you call my mother by that name you
will be serry.7
"I ?" said Oscar very contsmiitit-
" What will you do ?"
" I will beat you with that stick
you hold in your hand."

for a living, remember that one hour

At no after period, perhaps in their
life, do young men need the inspira
tion of virtuous love, and the sympa
thy of a companion in their self-deny
ing toil, as when they :first enter the
battle for their own support. Early
marriages are permanent moralities,'
and deferred marriages are tempta
tions to wickedness. And yet every
year becomes more and more difficult,
concurrently with the reigning ideas
of society,. for young men to enter up
on that matrimonial state which is
the proper guard of their virtue, as
well as the source of their courage and
enterprise. The battle of life is al !
most always at the beginning. There
it is that a man needs wedlock. But
a wicked and ridiculous public senti
ment putsa man who is in society, or
out of society for that matter, largely
on the ground of condition, and not
of disposition and character. The
man that has means wherewith he
can visibly live amply / is in good so- ,
ciety a's a general rule. The man that
has virtue and sterling-manliness, but
has nothing withal external to show,
is not usually considered in good so
ciety. Ambitions young men will not,
therefore, .marry until they can meet
their expenses ; but that is deferring
for years and years the indispensible
virtue. Society is bad where two can
not live cheaperthan one ! and young
men are under bad influences who,
when in the very morning of life, and
better fitted than at any later
to grow together with one who is their
equal and mate, are debarred from
marrying, through scores of years, for
mere prudential considerations ; and
the heart and life sacrificed to ' the
pocket. they are tempted to substi-,
tide ambition for love, when at last,
over the ashes and expiring embers of
their early romance they select their
wife. It is said that men who wait
till they are forty and forty-five years
of age, select prudently. Alas for the
wife who was not first a sweetheart I
Prudence is good, but is prudence

but what is prndence ? It is the dry
calculation of the head with the pock

spiration of a generous love ? Is there
no prudence in the faith by which,
banded, two young persons go down
into the struggle of life, saying, "Come
weal, come woe, come calm—love is a
match for circumstances, and we will
be all to each other ?' Woeibe to
that society in which the custoras and
manners of the times wear off, beyond
the perkid of romance and affiliation,

it out of Eden into the wilderness !
The girl, next infected-(and even wo

often waits to be wooed by-those who
can xplace her again, in the very • be
girnung of her wedded life, where she
was when she was broken off as a
branch from the parental tree.. But
a graft should always be willing to be
a graft, and wait till it can make its
own 13p by legitimate growing. And
woe is the day when every girl.Bll.Ts,.

A VISIT TO PEEEN.
A correspondent of the. New York
Herald writes from PERIN
" The vicinity Of Pekin does not in
dicate the approach to a capital of
four hundred millions of people ; the
miserableiroads, the mud hovels, and
the sqinlid inhabitants, clad in rags
and the remnants of sheepskins, do
not impress one favorably with Chi
nese civilization, It is better to read
books written two or three hundred
years ago. The walls are 50 to 60
feet' high, with pagoda towers over
the gates of four or five stories each,
reaching nearly tire same height, cov
ered with the peculiar enameled tiles
of China, reflecting the bright rays of
an Asiatic sun as freshly as if they
were only made yesterday.
. Pekin is a quaint old ,city. The
walls, as before remarked, are 60 feet
high—they are 40 to 50 feet wide at
the top, and afford a promenade a-\
round the city of some twenty-five
miles in extent. There ore only four
gates—North, East, South rind West,
and these are opened and closed with
the sun. The walls are not defended
by artillery, and appear to be entire
ly useless at the present time.

broken here and there by a , ghastly

his rounds beating a gong to warn
thieves of impending detection. The
streets are not passable by a vehicle

exists in Pekin or the North of China;
in wet weather they area slough of '
mud, in dry weather beds of dust.--
The lakes, which ornamented the city
in Marco - Palo's `time, are covered
with a green scum, which detracts
somewhat from their beauty.
The Emperor is now,thirteen years
of age, and will not probably ascend ,
the throne for five or six years to
come, and then it may be a matter of
some conjection as to what view 'he
will take of foreign intercourse. His i
recollections of foreign intercourse are
about the time that Pekin .was cap
tured by the allied British land French
armies in 1860, amid the conflagra!ion
of the summer palace and the flight
of his father into Tartary, and his
death in exile. Nis infant person was
then dozed by his undo, the Prince
of Eie, and .a strife ensued among the
Tartar Chiefs for the government of
the dynasty, in' which the prince of
Eie mysteriously departed for the
Mansions of hisnucesters, and anoth-
02 per Artmun in. Advance :
the Prince of Hang, swami
ed to the giuudhuiship of the imper
ial successor, and became the leaffing
spirit of the Manchu dynasty.
the Prince of Hung, the publicly
recogniieil Lead of the Governuient,
is rather a kandsime man, alatut for
ty years of age, lithe, active figure,
olive complexion, and very pleasant
manners. This Prince came promi
nently forward in 1860. when the al
lied armies entered' Pekin. - He was
aointed ItUperlid Cummissioner to

promptly,. a to - the terms. w'ch

lease of existence for the:Manchu dy r
nasty. In consequence of his success
in this negptiation„ l and subsequent
pxperience in foreign affairs, he was
placed at the head of the Foreign Of
five, and may be considered the Pre-
inter of the empire.
