Jjy the youtiilul engineer, wlu becama so
violently enamored that hi, attention wu
distracted and turned from the object upon '
which his mind had been hitherto bent-
He saw that the accomplishment of tho
work he had undertaken would result in '
his marriage with the daughter ofthe luca, .
imd this, though accompanied by all the
liouor.) tlie sovereign could bestow, would '
depiivo him of that which ho valued more l
than life, and tie him to a bride whom ho
bad never seen, and had now ceased to
desire to know.
. i Owiug to this state of Hassan's mind,
neglect, languor and disorder reigned in
the encampment of the workmen, which at
first seemed to every ouu to ariso from a
conviction on the part of the ongiueer that
tho accomplishment of tho work was be
yond his power. Soino timo pasaed with
out any change, during which Hassan had
frequent opportunities of meeting tho young
attendant to whom ho had become attach
ed. This however, was by and by remark
ed by tho peoplo in fueh a manner as to
induce the young girl to retire, and return
119 more to the camp distracting still more
the mind of tho engineer, who was uuable
to' obtain any further information concern
'''Tho confusion into which everything was
,now thrown becamo known to tho Inea,
who soon learned also the real causo of
.tho engineer's default, and determined to
take his revenge by putting to death the
subject who had ho grossly and so openly
insulted his sovereign. Tho character,
'however, of the offeuce was Mich that Hub.

appeared, guarded, in the presence of tho J
Inea, who sat upon his throno, Mtrroulid-1

bo a uiau of moderate passiom, asked the ;
culprit, in tho presence of h'n nobles, i
whether ho had anything to say before his
execution in extenuation of the eiime ho
had committed by treating his sovereign I
To this tho young man replied, that ho
j had only to thank hi-j sovereign for all the
favors ho had received, and more especial
ly for that ho was about to receive, which
would place him beyond tho reach of such
Mitloring as ho had endured since ho had
became acquainted with tho innocent cause
of his lnKtortuno.
At tin iiiom.Mil that tho Inea was about
to commit him to the tender mercies of tho '
executioners, tile girl w. havo incntioird
suldcnly appeared among the crowd of
nobles, dressed as sha hid bjon in the
camp of the workmen, and, rushing into
the centre of the ball, exclaimed :
" iitay, Inea! Arrest the hand of ju.
tiee for a moment, while I put one que-tiou
to thu unfortunate culprit. It shall bo
such a. tho Iue.i will not disapprove.'' '
i'Vom tlu moment of this strange app tri
tion, until the demand of the giil, thore
was not .1 sound to be heard. The whole 1
of the nobles present remained motionless '
and i-ilent. lint, had no embarrassment
oorhelmod them, the provenue of ihcir

alone seemed unmoved, nodded assent to

To whhdi tlu youth after steadily re- '

victory it awaits its reward. From blood

is mighty again, for in tho hot blood of
rising generations it sends its own genius
and directs ita course.
Age is a holy thing ; it is tho sanctuary
of well spent lives ; it is the tcmplo at tho
top of tho ladder of existence, where totter

regret upon tho great world they are to

TI1E .1ACKSOX-DICKINSON DUEI,.
I'rom "lMttwi'a i.ifu nr Andr'w j.-ukxin."
Tlio famous duel between Jackson and
Dickinson h generally known, but I'.tr-
ton,s recent life of the former gives an ex-1
eclleut account of the affair, w.th some cir -
euiiistances that are new.
Dickinson's second won the choico of
pOMtion, and Jackson's the office of giving
tho word. Tlie astute Overton considered
the giving of thu word a matter of great
important, and he had already dctcrmin
ou now no would give it it tlie lot fell to
him. Tho eighty pieos were meaMired olV
and tho men placed ; both were perfectly
collected. All the politeness of such oc
casions was strictly and elegantly per
formed. Jackson was dressed in a looso
frock, buttoned carelessly over his chest,
and concealing in some degree the extreme
sleiiderness of his figure. Dickinson was
tlie younger and liand.-omer man ol the i
two. ISutVTackson's tall erect figure and !
tho still intensity of his demeanor, it is
sain, jgave mm a most sup.uior anil com
maudiiig air as he stood under tho tall
poplars in tlie brightjMay morning, silent
ly awaiting the moment of doom.
".Are you ready ?'' saidOvcrton,
" I am ready,'.'' said Dicki.ison.
" I am ready," said Jackson.
Tho words were no sooner pronounced
than Overton, with a .sudden shout, cried,
in ing his old country pionuuciation,
Dickinson raised his pislol quickly and
fired. Oveiton, who was looking wit'i
anxiety and dread at Jackson, saw a puff
of dust fly from the breast of his coat and
saw him raise his arm mid place it tightly
across his chest. "He is surely hit,'
thought Overton''and in a bad place, too
but he docs not fall." Erect and grim as
fate he stood, his teeth clenched, raising
his pistol. 0ertou glanced at Dickinson.
Amazed at thu unwonted failure of his aim
and appalled at thu awful figure and face
before him, Dickiuou had uucouciously
rocoiled a step or two.
"Groat God V ho faltered, "have I
missed him .'"
"Dick to thu mark, sir!" thundered
Overton, with his hand upon his pistol.
Dickinson recovered his coinpouro,
stepped forward to thu peg, and stood with
eyes averted from bis antagonist. All
this was but the work of a moiiiciit,though
it requires many words to tell it.
General Jackson took deliberate aim
and pulled the trigger. The pistol neither
snapped nor went off. llo looked at. the
trigger and discovered that it bad stopped
at. half-cock. He drew it back to its place
and took aim a second time. He tired,;
Dickin -oil's face blanched ; ho reeled ; hi.s
friends rushed forward, caught him in
their anus, and gently laid him ou the
grass, leaning against a bush. They strip

his principal, ho said : "He wont want

him from tho ground. They had gone a
hundred yards, Overton walking on one
side of Jackson, tho surgeon ou the other,
and neither speaking a, word, when thu
surgeon observed that one ot Jackson's
shots was full of blood.
"Oh ! I believe," replied Jackson, "that
he has pinked mu a little. Let's look at it
Rut say nothing about it there," pointing
to the house.

respecting tho condition of Dickinson, and'

His reason for this was, as ho once stated
to mo, that as Dickinson considered him-
self the best shot in the world, and was j
certain of killing him at the first lire, he'
did not want him to have tho gratification J
even of knowing that ho had touched him.'' i
SELLING OLD THINGS.
Sell that old table 1 No ; 1 11 not sell
it. It's only a pine table , that's true ; and
it co-t but eighteen shillings iio years ago ;
but your 810 bill is no temptation. And
I'll not swap it cither, for,, tho prettiest
mahogany or cherry table that you can
bring me. If it has four plain turned legs,
instead of a pillar in tho middle, with li
on's claws, and if the marble top is only
varnished naiicr, still I will not swan it.
It has been to niu a very profitable invest
ment. From tlie day it eamo homo it has
been increasing its own capital. My chil
dren made a play-house and drank tea in
their toy cup3 under it, for which I thank
the four legs ; and when thoy got tired of
that way, they turnad it upside down, and
made a four post bed with curtains ; or
pulled it round tho carpet for a sleb'h.
Then they climbed on it for an observato
ry ; and never counted the glorious romps
they had round it. And so along for i!.-;
years it has paid its dividends of happiness
to my family circle. These dividends nev
er could be separated from it; but they
have become added to it, until its value is
not to be told in money. It has had its
quiet use alo ; for nobody could tell it
from a round table with its salnion-bord-cred
Nothing lasts forever. Tho top of the
table was loosened by tho bard use it got,
so I took a punch, drove in tho eight penny
nails below tho surface, added a few screws,
puttied them over, and pasted marble pa
paper checkers over tlu top. Then it was
really a pret'y table. It has had hard
usage since, but bears all ; and the check
ers waul renewing, which will make it
worth more yet.
My watch is .'ill years old. It is one of
tho-c thick silver levers, which some poor
wits call "lurnips." It has been several
times suggested lo me that I might exchange
it for a thin modern j,old watch, that wears
easier in the liocket. Wlieu'l do, voumav
set mo down for a barbarian. Not tho lest
! gold and jeweled " hunter " m existence
would tempt me to swap. That watch
walked tho time when my children were
bom, and tho record u set down in the
Family Bible ; it has ticked in their ears
when thoy could only speak by laughing at
' it, and kicking up their little heels. It
' has marked tlie timo when tho doctor's
I medicines wcru to be given, and counted
, their little pulses when these were low at
i midnight, and when tho heart ached. It
has made many records that aro fast scaled
up to be opened only when another timo
Twenty-seven years have passed since

It is never a good fortune that sells such
old friends out of a family, and takes iu
uew ones that havo no history and no
tongue. Iu all tho changes that havo so
far taken placo, I havo kept these silver
bowls unbroken, and suroly no changes in
the future shall break them,
It is the lot of some novcr to bo positive
ly happy j their nearest approach to it is
resignation. They are resigndd, Imt nev
er glad. These are tho beings who think
profoundly, feel a cutely, whose discerning,
spiritual eye penetrates thu abyss of the
past and of tho future. Their mental and
moral faculties are broader and farther
reaching. Their sensibilities more sen
sitively strong, more keenly alive, and
thoso belonging to beings cat in a common
mould. They seem to hoar all things, see
all things, suffer all things ; and to this
soul, to whom is given tho power to seo,
and feel, and comprehend, dwelling as it
docs, in the bosom of uurcaled mystery,
often shrinks back, sad and battled, bear
ing upon its heart too great a burden of
profound thought to be ever lightly gay.
This soul encircles all things ; it turns in
sadness from the unsolved problem of tho
physical universe, to mue and marvel over
the phenomena of man ; upon tho pro-
spects and posibilties,upou the being and i
destiny of the imprisoned and alien soul,

There is a dreadful ambition abroad for
being "genteel." We keel, un anpearan-1

and, though we may not bu rich, yet wo
must seem to be so. Wo must bo "re-

sense in mere vulgar outward show. We
havo not tho courage to go patiently on-

ipleasedGod to call us; but must needs

ridiculously please to call ourselves, aud
all to gratify the vanity of that unsubstan

The mischievous results show themselves

stated in tho House of Commons though

tho tono of living iu England is altogether
too high. Middle classes of people aru

beyond them ; affeeting a degree of f-ty lo
which is most unhealthy in its effect upon
society at largo. There is an ambition to
bring boys up as gentlemen, or rather
"genteel" men ; though the result fre
quently is, only to make them gents, Thoy

DURITY OF CHARACTER.
Over tho beauty of tho plum and tho
aprioot there grows a bloomand beauty
moro cxqtiisito than the fruit itself a
soft, delicate flush that overspreads its
blushing cheek. Now if you'striko your
hand over that, and it is once gone, it is
gone forever ; for it never grows but once.
The flower that hangs, in the morning Jut
peailed with dew arrayed as no queenly
women ever was arrayed in jewels onco
shako it so that tho beads roll off, and ou
may sprinklo water over it as you please,
yet it can never bo made again what it
was when the dew fell silently upon it from
heaven 1 On a frosty morning you may
see the panes of glass covered with land
scapes mountains, lake, and trees, blend
ing in a beautiful, fantastic picture. Now
lay your hand upon the grass, and by tho
.-.cratch of your finger, or by tho warmth
of your palm, all tho delicate tracery will
be obliterated. So there is in youth a
beauty and purity of character, which
when once touched, and defiled, can never
bo restored a fringe more delicate than
frost work, and which, when torn and
broken, will never be re embroidered. A

A.nt trir-ATi.Nti Evir.. Enjoy the pres
ent, whatever it may bo, aud not be solici
tous for the future ; for if you take your
foot from the present standing, and thrust
it forward towaul to-morrows ko, cuts you
aro in a restless condition. It is liko re
fusing to quench your present thirst by
fearing you will want drink the next day.
If it bo well to-day, it is madness to make
the present misjrable by fearing that it
may be ill to-morrow. Ho therefore, is
wise who enjoys as much as possible ; and
if only that day's trouble leans upon hiui,it
is singular and finite. -"Sufucieut to the
day is the evil thereof;" sufficient, but not
intolerable. Rut if wo look abroad, and
bring into one days thoughts the evil of
many, certain and uncertain, what will be
and what will never be, our load will bo
as intolerable as it is unreasonable.
I'ltovEiins uonnt I'nESEiivJNG.- Has
ty people drink the wino of life scalding
hot. Death is the only master who takes
his servants without a character. Con
tent is the mother of good digestion.
When pride and poverty marry together,
their children aro want and crime. When
hard work kills ten, idleness kills a hund
red men. Folly and prido walk side by
side. He that borrows binds himself with
his neighbour's rope, Ho that is to good
for good advieo, is to good for his neigh
bor's company. Friends and photographs
novcr flatter. Wisdom is always at home
to those who call. Tho firmest friends
ask the fewest favors.

Ir you want truth to go around ti.
world you must hire au express train W
pull it; but if you want a lie to go rouu.i
tho world, it will fly: it is as light as u
feather, and a breath will carry it, It is
well said in tho old Froverb, "A lie will go
round tho world while truth is pulling on
its boots," Nevertheless, it does not in-
juro us; for if light as a feather, it trawlj
as last, its effect is juit about as tronien
dous as tho effect of down, when it is blown
against the walls of a castle; it pr 'rcos
no damage whatever, on account of its
lightness aud littleness. Fear not, Chris
tian. Let slander fly,' lot envy send forth
its forked tongue, let it hiss at you, your
bow shall abide in strength. Oh 1 shield
ed warrior, remain quiet, fear no ill ; but,
like the eagle in its lofty eyrie, look thou
down upon tho fowlers iu tho plaii tuin
thy bold eye upon them and say, "Shoot
yo may, but your shots will not reach half
way to the pinnacle whero I stand. Waste
your powder upon me if ye will; I am be
yond your reach." Then clip vour wings,
mount to heaven, and thsro laugh them tt

and shall hud u most sccuro abode.
What would her Majesty think of her

the chanco of it, if yo will bo so; but I
should not like to risk it. It is a solemn
threatening, "of him will I bo ashamed
when I come iu the glory of my father,
and all his holy angels with me." It
solemn thing, I say, when Christ sajs,
"Except a man take up his cross aud fol

linked together in tho atonement of Christ.
liut, mark, wo can never understand thj

as surely as God is God, ho will sooner
lose his Godhead than suffer one sin to go
unpunished, or one particle of rebellion un

men of Israel ; I will help thee." Cuuit
