A Truo Tale.
Ono cold windy morning, the last Sun
day of December, 1810, a half naked man
knocked timidly at tlio basement door of
a fine substantial mansion in tho city of
Brooklyn. Though tho weather was bitter plied tho doctor, syrapathisingly. llo had

apparel and evident of fatigue, as ho leaned , lif.ing tho athletic stranger, who was soon
heavily upon tho railing of tho basement oarried to a room in tho chambers, whero
stairs, a critical observer could not fail to
ncticn a conscious air of dignity, and the
marked traces ot cultivation ana rclinemeut Tho young man soon becamo partly con
in his palo haggard countenance. j scious, but all conversation was forbado
Tho door was speedily opened, and dis- him, and ho sunk quietly to sleep,
cloicd a large, comfortably furnished room, j n u0 ;3 d0ig won . i0t him rest as long
with its glowing grate of anthracite j beforo , as ho can should ho awako in our absence,
which was a fashionablo attired young g;T0 !,;, b00f( taa auj loapt libitum,"
man, in a brocado dressing gown and vcl- - said tho doctor professionally, as ho left
vet slippers, was reclining in a sott Jauttil, ,
busilv readiurr tho mornum nanors. Tho
beautiful young wifo had lingered at tho
t iblc, giving to the servant in waiting, her
orders for tho household duties of tho day,
when tho timid rap at tho door attracted
her attention. Sho commanded it to bo
opened ; but the door was already opened,
and the sympathies of Mrs. Maywood en.
listed at once.
"Como in to tho Ore;" cried tho young
wife, impulsively, " boforo you perish 1"
Tho mendicant, without exhibiting any
surpriso at such unusual treatment of a
street beggar, slowly entered tho room,
manifesting a painful weakness at every
step. On his cotrar.ee, Mr. Maywood,
with a displeased air, gathered up his pa
pcrs and left tho apartment. The com
passionato lady unwisely placed tho half
frozen man near tlio fire, while sho prepared
a bowl of fragrant coffee which, with
abundant food, was placed bcOio lilm -But
noticing tho abrupt departuro of her
husband, Mrs. Maywood, with a clouded
countenance, left the room, whispering to
tho servant to remain until tho stranger
Slio then ran hastily up tho richly
mounted stair case and paused before the
entrance of a small laboratory and medical
library, and occupied solely by her husband
who WrtS n physician and practical chemist.
Shu opened the door nnd entered tho room.
Mr. Maywood was sitting at a small table,
with his head resting on his bauds, appa
rently in deep thought.
" Edword," said tho young wife, gonlly
touching his arm, " I fear I havo displeased
you; but tlio man ionised so wrctoncu, 1
could not bear to drivo him away," and
her sweet voico trembled as sho added
"You know 1 take the sacrament to day."
"Dear Mary,1' replied tho really fond
husband, "I appreciate your motives. I
know it is pure goodness of heart which
leads you to disoboy me, but still I must
insist upon my former commands that no
beggar shall ever bo permitted to enter tho
liouso, It is for your safety that I insist
upon it. How deeply you might bo im
posed upon in my frequent absences from
homo, I shudder lo think. The man that
is now below may bo but a burglar in
discuise, and already in your absence
taking impression in was of tho different
keyholes in tho room so as to enter somo
uight at his leisure. Your limited experi
ence of city lifo, makes it difficult for you
to credit bo much depravity. It is no
charity to givo to street beggars, it only
encourages vice, doare?t,"
"Itmiyboso," responded Mrs. May
wood, ''but it seems wicked not to relievo
suffering and want cvon if tho person has
behaved badly and wo know it, but I
will promiso you not to lot another beggar
into tho houso,"
At this moment tho servant rapped vio
lently at tho door, cryiog out that tho
beggar was dying.
"Como, Edward, your fkill can savo
him, I know," said his wifo hasteniug
from tho room,
Tho doctor did uot refuso this appeal to
..... j. . ,
vauity, for ho immediately
o'sflyiug footiteps as sho
his professional v
followed his wifo's flying footiteps
descended to tho basement. Thoy found ,
tho mendicant laying palo and unconscious
upon tho carpet whoro ho had slipped in j
his weakness from the chair whero Mrs. 1
Maywood had seated him. j
" He is a handsomo fellow," muttered
tho doctor as ho bent over him to ascertain
tho ttatc of his pulso.
And well ho might say so, The glossy
locks of raven hair had fallen away from
a broad, white forchoad; his clooed eyelids
wore bordered by long raveu lashes which
lay like a silken fringo upon Lis palo
bronzed checks, wbilo a delioato nquilino
nose, and a squire massive cliin displayed
a model of manly Leauly,
"Is Iio dead I" asked tlio young vilo
" OL, no I it is only a fainting lit induced
by tho sudden chango of tcmporaturo and
perhaps tho first stago of starvation," re
tho doctor administered with his own '
hands, strong doses of port wino 3angarco
In les3 than an hour afterwards, Dr,
Maywood and his lovely wifo entered tho
gorgeous church of " tho most llcly Trin
ity." Amid tho hundreds of fair dames that
entered its broad portals, dressed with all
tho tasto and magnificence that abundant
woaltlt could procuro, not ono rivalled, in
grace and beauty, tho orphan bride of the
rich physicUn. Her tall, graceful figure
was robed in a violet silk, that only height
tned by contrast her largo azuro eyes,
bright with tho lustro of youthful happiness;
yet thero was a touch of tender pity in
their drooping lids that won the confidence
of every beholder. Tho snowy tcrmine
mantilla, which protected her from the
piercing wind, rivalled, but could not sur
piss, tho delicate purity of her complexion.
M any admiring eyes followed tho faultless
fiuic of Jim. Maywood. fs sho moved
with unconscious grace up tho central aisle
of tho church, but none with more heartfelt
devotion than tho young, wayward, but
generous man who had recently wedded
her in spite of her poverty, and tho sneers
of his tiristocratio acquaintance,
The stately organ had pi. hi its last rich
notes, which wero still echoing in tho dis
tant arches, when a stranger of venerable
aspect, who had previously taken part in
tho services of tho altar, roso and announ
cod for his text, the oft quoted but seldom
applied words of tho Apostle. " He not
careful to entertain strangers, for thereby
some have entertained angels unawares.'
Dr. Maywood folt his forehead flush pain
fully; it appeared to him for tho moment
that tho preacher must havo known his
want of charity towards strangers, and
wished to givo him a public lesson ; but
he soon saw, from the tenor of his remarks,
that his own guilty conscienco had alone
mado the application in his particular case.
I havo not space, nor indeed the power to
givo any synopsis of the sermon ; but that
it combined with the incident of tho morn
ing, effected a happy revolution in tho mind
of at least one of its hearers. So much so
that on tho return of Dr. Maywood from
church, ho repaired at onco tn tho room of
the mendicant to offer such attentions as
ho might stand iu need of, But tho young
man seemed to be much refreshed by rest
and nutritious food, nnd commenced grate

had saved his lifo. " But I will recom

Tbo Gravo of Jamo3 Madison
Tho Richmond South gives an interesting
account of tho oponing of tho gravo of
Jaincs Madison, for tho purpeso cf laying
tho foundation of a monument to his mem
ory, Hero is a description of tho monu
ment: Tho monument is of James Ilivcr granite,
in form an obelisk, and as graceful and
appropriate as anything could be. It is
composed of seven pieces of stone, two of
which measure five feet by seven, and weigh
over nino thousand pounds; two others,
which measure four feet by two foot, wcih
irif over six thousand pounds; another,
two feet ten inches by two feet, weighs
thrco thousand pouudf ; and another, thir
teen feet long, twenty-Cvo inches at its
base, and thirteen inches at tho top, weighs
ton thousand pounds. 'J'ho gross wefgkt cf
tho entire monument i3 about 32,000 lbs.
It rises just twenty-four feet abovo the level
of tho burying ground. Tho height of tho
monument proper b just twenty-two feet
six inches, but the foundation on which it
rests being raised some eighteen inches
abovo tho surface, adds thai much to tho
apparent height of tho monument. About
nine feet from tho base is chiselled tho
following inscription :
BORN MAB.0II lOTIf, 1751.
Lied June 28t, 1830.
Tho appearance of the ooffin and eornso
is thus described :
In digiiinj for a suitable foundation, it
becamo necessary to go below tho coffin,
wuicu was consequently exposed to view.

Boneath this, and partly hidden by it,
wero a few of tho larger and harder bones.
Tho lower jaw had fallen away, the bones
of tho breast and the libs wero gone, aud
tno only parts ot tlio skeleton which re
mained wero the skull and portions of the
check bones, tho vertebras of tho neck, tho
spino and tho largo bones of tho arm. All
else of tho upper part of tho body had re
turned to tho dust from whence it was
taken, and in a few years moro every traco
of tho body will disappear, until tho trump
of tho resurrection shall re-unite tho scat
tered particles. Tlio body had been interred
just twenty ono years.
un reaching sumciently nrm ground, tho
foundation was commenced and built up as
two walh, one each side of tho coffin, until
it reached a sufficient height, when it was
arched over tho cottin, nnd then built up
solid to tlio surfuco, thus forming a vault,
in which rest tho remains of Madison,
precisely beneath tho centre of tho monu
ment. Tho foundation was mado of hard

knowledge of the world would rather hayo
