was an invalid, IIo sat with his head
resting upon his hands, and his whole
frame would over and andu tremble as
though with some powerful emotion.
As tho youth sat thus, his door was
oponed,,afl,d an elderly gentleman entered.
"Ah, doctor, you are moving early this
morning," said Ballcrton, as ho leisurely
roso from his scat and extended his hand.
"Ohl not early for mo, George," re
turned Allyne, with a bright smile. " 1
am an early bird,"
"Well, you've caught a worm this time,"
" I hopo 'twill provo a valuable one."
"1 don't know," sighed tho youth. " I
fear a thousand worms will inherit this
poor Uc-dy ere Jong."
"Nonsonso! Ycu nro worth half a
rfseotury yet," cried tho doctor, giving him
a gentle slap .on the shoulder. " But just
tell mo, George, how it is with Jlowland I"
" Just as I told you. All is gone."
" I don't understand it, George."
" Neither Ao I," said ,tbo young man,
sorrowfully "That Charles Jlowland could
have dono that thing, I would not, could
not havo believed. Why, had an angel
appeared to mo two weeks t0, and told
me that Rowland was shaky, I would not
have paid a .moment's attention to it.
Hut only think : when my father died he
selected tor my guardian Ui.s .best friend,
and such I even now believe Charles How
land was, and in his hands he placed all
his wealth, for him to keep until I should
become of ago. And when I did arrive at
that period of life, 1 left my money where
it was. I had no use for it. Several
limes within three or four years has llow
land asked me to take my money and in
ve.'t it, but 1 would uot. I bade him keep
it, and use it if he wished. I only asked
him that, when I wanted money, ho would
honor my .demand. I felt more safe, in
faot,-tbjiu I should have felt had my money
been in a bank on deposit."

"Ah ! you have mo on tho,hip .there."
"Aud yet you must do something,
George. Heaven knows I would kcop
you'if 1 could. I shall claim the privilego
of paying your debts, howovcr."
" No, no, doctor nono of that."
" But I tell you I ehall. I shall pay
your debts; but beyond that I can only
assist you to (help yqrself. What do you
say to going to sea."
A faint smilo swept over tho youth's palo,
features at this remark.
" I should make a smart hand at fioa

"Ntjpsonsc, George. I.say, go to sea,
You couldn't go into a shop, and you
wouldn't if you aould. You do not wish
to .remain here amid the scenes of your
happier days. Think pf it. At sea you
would bo free from all sneers nf the heart

you loatho. Think of it."
George Ballcrton started to his feet and
paced tho floor for somo minutes. Wbon
he stopped, a new lifo seemed already at

" But why wait! Have I not enough!"

''CKeorgo,!' said tho doctor, after tho
Voung man had given a full account of his
dventurcs, !!I should think you would
almost forgive poor Kowland for having
made off with your fortune !"
" Jjorgtvc him! ' returned George; "oh,

" Well, George," resumed tho doctor,

Tho door was opened, and Mr. Rowland

these resolves clearly defined in his mind,
ho already felt better.
At first our supercargo was too weak to
do much. He was very soa sick, .and it
lasted nearly two weeks ; but when that
passed off, and he could pace tho vibrating
deck with a stout stomach, his appetite
grow sharp, aud his muscles began to grow
strong. At first his appetite craved some
of tho many delicacies he had been to long
u3cd to; but.thoy were not to bo had, nnd
he soon learned to do without them. Tho
.result was, his appctito becaruo natural in
its wants; and his systom "began to find

Through storm and sunshine, through

Many years ago I was conversing with
my father on tho wondorful skill ,9 the
Kcntuckians, when he related tho following
"J was out in tho wild of Kentucky,
6omo years before tho war, on a surveying
expedition and had an opportunity of stu
dying the character of thq early settlers for
a considerable longth of timo. It beoamo
necessary for me to stop a few days at a
log tavern, and to whila away tho, time 1
trjirk my rifle and explored tho woods for
game, of which thcro was an abundance.
Tho landlord had a .little son, about ten
years of oge, who accompanied mo with
his rifle, and always had extremely good
luck. j9n ono occasion tho fates seemed
averso to him, fur perceiving a squirrel on
a very high branch of a treo, ho up with
his rifle .and blazed away, and down came
tho squirrel. Tho lpok of dismay with
which ho viewed tho gamo, I shall never
forget. Dropping the butt of his riflo on
the ground, ho burst into tears. In the
utmost surprise, I inquired what tho matter
was. He answered
"Daddy'll liek mo."
"Lick you 1 what for I"
"Because I didn't hit him in tho head."
I soothed him all I could, but tho day's
pleasure" was ovor. On returning to tho
tavern I interceded for him all in my power
to savo him from the hickory, but it was of
no use; tho application must bo made, If
only for example
"No, no, stranger ; if I let him off I
break a standing rule of our State. I was
never lot off, and what is good for mo is
good for him. lln must shoot right or
put up with what ho gets."
Tho hickory was applied, but no bones
were broken. Such training as that, which
was universal in thoso parts, tells the secret
of Kentucky rifle shooting
dor any circumstances. Ladies, do not
marry a miser ; (18 will deny you not only
tho comforts, but tho necessaries of lifo,
and mako you poor in the midst of plenty.

evils, but ho will stint and starvo you until

When I sco a man a lover of idleness
moro than of industry, sacrificing even his
interests to indolence, I guess tbaf man
will soon learn want. Ladies, do not
marry a lazy man ; for ho who i3 devoid of
energy must bo devoid of proper feelings,
and will not bo stimulated by affection to
discharge his duty to his family. Holy
Writ informs us that he who will not pro
vido for his own household is worso than
an infidel, and hath denied the faith.
WhepI sco a man a lover of whiskey
more than of water, wasting his health in
w-uwii ticjo, oaUUHUIIJir Ills nn.ait.II, ll'Ino
tation, and peaco of mind to a beastly
appetite, I guess tint man will soon drai n
tho cup of his misery to tho very dregs, and
that he is not long for this world. Ladles,
do not marry a drunkard; of all. characters
ho is tho most to bo dreaded and avoided,
for drunkenness is tho sch'ool of every other
vide, nnd tho high road to ruin.
When I1 sco a man a lovcr of self moro
than of society, engrossing, whilo in com
pany, the wholo conversation to himself
sacrificing every principlo of politeness to
a dictatorial dispositionr-l guess that that
man, few as ho admiro will find still few,er
to admire him, and none to placo as high
an estimation upon him a3 ho puts upon
himself. Ladies, do not marry a "proud,
conceited, taltting spark," ho Js too much
in lovo with his noble self to leave any room
in his heart for any' ono clso ; and rest'
assured, whero affection 3 not mutual, lifo
cannot bo prosperous or happy. "Secst
thou a man wiso in his own conceit, there
is moro hope of a fool than of him."
When I see a man a lover of pleasure
more than of property, sacrificing principlo
to passion, and propo to prostrate his pros
pects befoto his propensities, I guess that
that man will reap pain instead of pleasure,
and tha,t pleasuro itself will pall on his
palato. Ladies, do not marry a lover of
plcasu.ro; ho cannot perpetually plcaso you,
nor can you pJcao him long.
Whon J sco a man prodigal with his
property, pouring it out profusely, without
regard to the precepts of prudence, I gucs3
that that man js precipitately pacing tho
path to poverty, and tua tlicrcroro ho will
not long own property. Ladies, do not
marry a prodigal, unless jnu chooso pov
erty. When 'I sco a man of vittjwus life, with1
a clear head and 'a warm heart, and indus
trious habits, laboring with zeal and energy
fur his own and general good, I guess that
man would make a fiuo citizen, a happy
husband, an affectionate father, an&' 'a
prosperous man. .Ladies, keep, a good looK
out and when you find such a character,
and can get an offer from him, do not
hesitate or pause to inquire whether ho' fs
rioh, or descended from a great family, but
jump at tho ohanccf and your days shall
pass sweetly and smoothly away.
