Tea Baer Idaszatt.—One of the speakers
at a late public meeting in Boston, revived
the following pleasant story:
In the good old days when General Jack
son was President, be was making a tour to
visit the-northern portion of his dominion,
and was received at every city and every
village by a ceremonious welcome. Coin
miueee were appointed, and every man hid
a little speech of his own to make. It hap
pened that in the city of New York, the ar
rangement was to have the committee of the
city to go to Amboy, and meet the General
on board the steamboat, and there welcome
him to the hospitality of New York,. and es

mittee was an alderman, distinguished for
more soundness in the Democratic faith than
for shining talents is an orator, one of the
very few .persons in our country who ate
wholly unaccustomed to public speaking
When the committee reached Amboy, the
General came as boaid the boat, and they
stepped forward and were presented. The
Alderman, making a most profound bow, and
having prepared himself most ,elaborately,
'begat): "May it plows you excellency"—
and then suddenly seemed struck ilth.t:on

help, but nothing was. suggested, and again

It was early in the spring, and the- old
bunter had just returned horn Columbia,
where had been to carry the produce of his
winter's labor, which consisted mostly of fore.
He had received 'quite a sum of money. and
bad brought it borne with him.. The old
man had for several. ears been accumulating
money, for oiviliistion was rapidly approach
ing him, and he meant that his children
should start on fair terms with the world.
Que evening, just as the family was sitting
down to the frugal supper, they wereattraeted.
by the sudden howling of the dogs, and as
Slater went to the door to see what was the
matter, he saw thre&nten approaching.
He quickly quieted the dogs, and the
strangers approached the door. They asked
for something to eat and also for lodgings
for the night. John Slater was not a man
to refuse a request of that kind, and he asked
the strangers in. They 'set their rifles be
hind the door, unslung their packs androom
was made for them at the supper table.
They presented themselves as travellers bound
father West, intending to cross the Mississippi
' in search of a settlement.
The new comers were far from being
agreeable or prepossessing in their looks,
but Slater took no notice of the eirperostanT
ces, for he was pot ova to doubt say man.
The boys, however, did not like their appear
ance at all, and quick glances which they
gave each other told their feeling. The bun,
ter's wife was_not at the table, but she sat
in her great easy chair by the fire.
Slater entered into conversation with his
guests, but they were not very free, and after
a little while the talk dwindle to occasional
questions. Philip, the elder of the two, no
ticed that the men cast uneasy glances about
the room, and he watched. them narrowly.
His fears bad become excited, and he could
not rest. He knew that his father bad a large
sum of money in the house, and his first
thought was that these men were there for
the purpose of robbery.
After supper was over the boys quickly
cleared off the table, and then went out of
doors. It had become dark, or rather the

about their suspicions, they bad no chance,
for the strangers sat close by him all the
At length, however, the old man signified
his intention of reiiring, and arose to go out
of doors to see 'the state of affairs Without.
The three followed him, but they did not
takeitheir weapons. The old lady was asleep
in her chair.
"Now;" whispered Phillip, "let's take two

resumed their seats.
.The hunter's cabin was divided into two
apartments on the ground floor, one athletes,
in the end of the building, being the old
tmaws sleeping room, and the other room in
which the present company sat. Overhead

half way over the room below it, "and in the

open to the room below.

'of the kitcken for the three travellers, and
after everything bad been arranged for their
comfort, the boys went up to their bed; and
the old man retired to his little toom.

did it was only to avoid it. Half so bout

cry out, but a sudden pressure from the hand
of his brother kept him silent.

A. Tale of Western Life.
When Kentucky was an infant State, and
before the foot of civilization had trodden her
-giant forest., there lived upon a branch of
the Green river, an old hunter by the name
of Slater. Ilia but was upon the southern
bank of.the stream, and save a *smell patch
of some dozen sores that bad been - cleared
by his own axe, be was shut up_by dense old
forests. Slater bad two children at twine

formerfourteen and the latter twelve. years
of age.
We elder children bad gone South. -Dia

years an almost helpless cripple from- the ef

"But we can watch them."
"Yea, we will watch them, but dun's let
min know it."
The boys then held some further coosulta-
be in his hands! The thought was a .tower
of auength in itself.
Phillip opened the window without mov
tog from his bed, and it swung on its hinges
without noise.- Then he threw off the sheet
and tied the corner of it to the staple by
which the window was 'hooked. The sheet
was then lowered on the outside, and care: .
fully 'the brave boy let himself out upon_ it.
Ile enjidned his brother not to move, and
then slid noiselessly down. The hounds had
foetid the meat, but they drew back at their
young master's beck, and Phillip gathered
the flesh all up. ,Ile easily quieted the faith
ful brutes, and then quickly tied the meat in
the sheet. There - was a little ladder standing
near' the dog-house, and vetting this up
against the building, Philip made his way
back to his little loft, and when once safely
there he pulled the sheet in after him.
The strangers bad not been aroused, and
with beating' heart the boy thanked God.
lie bad performed an act, simple as it may
appear, at which many a stout heart would
have quailed. The dogs growled as they_
went, back idto their'kennel, and if' the
'dangers hearfl ,them„ they thought the poor
aniquils-we're growling over the repast they
had found.
I At length the hounds ceased their noise,
and all was quiet. ',An hour passed' away,
and so did another. It mast have been sear

the lad Phillip saw _the rays of a candle Bashi

stood his bed. He would have moved to the
crack where he could peep doWn, but at that
moment he beard a man upon the ladder.
He uttered a quick whisper to his brother,
and . they lay perfectly still. 'The fellow seem
