"What is tho price of this tlreaing gown,
Mr ?" rtskctl a Mvcct faced young girl cn
tcring tlio elegant store of Hunter and
Warner in a city and street of a city which
shall bo nameless.
It was a cloudy day. The clerks loun
god over tho couuters, read papers and
yawned. The m iii to which Alieo Locke
addressed herself, was jaunty and middle
accd. Ho was head clerk of the extensive.
, , ,. . , Tr c ,
establishment ot Hunter iV Warner, and
extremely coiwquctiti.il in his manner.
"This dres-ing gown wo value it at six
dollars you shall have it for Cvo as trade
is dull to-day.
Five dollars? Alice looked at the
dressing gown longingly and tho clerk
looked at her. Ho saw that her clothes
though mado and worn gcutccly, were
common enough in texture, and that her
face was very much in tho common lino.
How it changed ! now shaded, now light
cd by the varied play of hor emotions.
The clerk could almost Iiavo sworn that
she had no more than that sum, five dol
lars, in her pttr-o or pocket.
Tho gown was a very good one for the
price, it W.13 ol common shade, a tolcra
"I think" ?ho hesitated a moment
"I think" I'll takc.it," she said ; then sco
ing in tho faco before her an expression
which fcho did not like, she blushed as she
handed out the hill tho clerk had mado up
his mind to tako.
"Jennis' criol Torrent tho head clerk
in quick pompous tone, ''pass up the bank
Up ran a tow headed boy with tho de
tector and up and down ran tho clerk's
eyes from column to column. Then ho
looked over with a sharp glance and ex
claimed 'That's a counterfeit bill, Mia?."
Oh how pale the sweet faco grew !
'Counterfeit 1 Oh nc it cannot be !
Tho man who sent it could not havo been
so careless ; you must bo mistaken, sir.'
"I'm not mistaken; I'm novcr mistaken
Miss. Tho bill is counterfeit. I must
presume, of course, that you did net know
it although so much bad money has been
offered us of late that wo intend to secure
such person as pass it. AY ho did you say
"Mr. 0 . sir, of Now York. Ho
could not send mo bad money," said tho
trembling, frightened girl.
"Humph," said tho clerk. "Well there'

again until you can bring good money, for
wo always suspect such persons as you,that
como dark days with a well mado story."
"You need make nocxplanations,Miss,"
said the man insultingly. "Tako your

dressing gown, don't intcud to pass coun

Alien xntirslit it from llin flnnr ..ml kn.
ricd into the street.
Such a shock tho girl had never received
in all her life Before. It was the first in-
'suit sho had ever known, and it baructl
her check and pained her heart.
I Straightway, indignant and grieved, sho
I hurried to a banking establishment, found
her way in, and presented tho note to a
tioblo hoking man with gray hair, falter
ing out, "is this bill a bad ono fir ?"
Tho cashier and his son happened to bo
the only persons present. Both noticed
her cxtrcmo youth, beauty and agitation.
Tho cashier looked at it closely and hand
cd it back as with a polite bow and boiuo
wh.it prolonged look he said j
"It's a good bill, young lady."
"I knew it was," cried Alice, with a
quivering ltp-''and ho dared "
She could go no fuithcr, but entirely
overcome, sho bent hor head, and the hot
tears had their way.
"I beg pardon, have you had trouble
with it?" asked tho cashier.
"Oh, sir you will please excuse mo for
giving way to my feelings hut you spoke
so kindly, and I felt so sure it was good '.
And 1 think sir that such men as ono of
tho clerks in Hunter & Warner's should
bo removed. And added something' that I
am glad my father did not hear. I knew
the publisher would not send me bad mon
ey." 'Who is your father young lady?1'
asked tho cashier becoming interested,
'Mr. Benjamin Locke, sir."
''Benjamin Ben Loeko was ho ever
a clerk in tho Navy Department, at Wash
"Yes, sir ; wo removed from there,"
replied Alice. "Since then" sho hesita
ted "he has not been well and wc are
somewhat reduced. Oh, why do I tell
you theso thing sir J"
"Bon Locke reduced !" murmured tho

That evening the inmates of a shabby
but genteel houso received tho cashier of
tho M Bank. Mr. Locke, a man
of grey hair, though numbering about fif
ty years roo from his arm chair, and
much affected greeted tho familiar face
The son of th') cashier accompanied him,
and while tho eldest talked together Alice
and tho young man grew quite chatty.
"Yes, sir, 1 havo been unfortuuate,''said
Mr. Loeko in alow tone. "I have but just
recovered, as you see from a rheumatic fe

not been for that sweet girl of mine, I
know not what I should havo done. Sho

by writing for periodicals, has kept mo so

"You shall never know want my old

Pen cannot doscribo the joy with which

On the following morning tho cashier
entered the handsome store of Hunter tt
Warner, and asked lor tho head clerk.
"Sir, said the cashier, sternly, ''is that a

"I I think not, sir," said tho clerk
Tho cashier went, to the door. Prom
his carriage stepped a young girl in com

"Bid you not tell this young lady, my

And furthermore did you not so far forget
your Bolf respect, aud tho interest of your

The man stood confounded ho dared
not deny ho could say nothing for him

SATURDAY, MAY 25, 186L
Military and Naval Inventions.
Tho inrcniitivo faculty of tho country,
roused to extraordinary activity by the in
tenso mental excitement pervading the
community, will now bo directed to an un
usual extent to improvements to implements
of war and in all mcfibamim connected
with naval nud mllHMry operations. Of
the thousand elements in thin broad field
of invention, tho iuot prominent at the
present time are rilled cannon and tho iron
plating of ship'. The groat military pow
ers, England and Prance, after expending
hundreds of thousands of dollars in ex
periments, havo adopted both of tho'o im
portant improvements j whilo our own
Government, which, notwithstanding its
peaceful policy, usually occupies tho front
rank in tho quality of its small army and
navy, is strangely behind in the movement.
The riflo cannon of tho Preneh army
are loaded at tho muzzlo, whilo British
Government has adopted tho breach-loading
gun invented by Armstrong ; though,
since tho recent astounding revelations in
regard to that famous weapon, it is prob
able that its use will bo abandoned, and
tho British Government also will adopt the
simpler pieces which aro loaded at the
muzzle. A great deal of attention has
been given by English inventors to tho
forms of tho rifle grooves ; whether they
should bo rcctangutar, triangular, or round
whether they should be broad or narrow)
few or many, &c; and many of these
points remain entirely unsettled.
The plating of ships, too, notwithstand
ing the fact th at both nations aro expend-

is regarded by the most intelligent English ,
engineers as still open for experiment and i
improvement. A great deal of discussion
lllg lllltllUllS Ul UUI1U1S UpUU tUUSU ClUUlUa,
has been expended upon plans for making
tho sides of the ships which wero to bear
these plates sloping ; it being ascertained
that a much thinner plate is required to
turn away a shot striking at an auglo, than
will resist a liornendicular imnact.
. . . , i
It is easy to conceive of numerous mod-
. ,. z. ... ., , '
plates will bo offered to tho reception of
tho shot. Ono plan invented iu England
is to have the plates fastened upon inde
pendent iloats, to bo cariiod by tho sides
of ship ; and tho intellect of tho nation 1
seems to bo teeming with an endless' variety
of ideas in connection with tho subject. j
But tho rifling of cannon and the palling
of ships aro only two of an innumerable '
multitude of detail connected with naval '
and military mechanism. Tho shot, tho
wad, nnd cartridgo, tho lock, tho gun car-'
riage, the cartridge-box, tho tent and tent
equipage, the cooking apparatus, preserved
meats and other provisions, and, in short,
overythiug relating to tho operations, tho
armament') and the supplies of navies and 1
armies will be examined with eager seruti-j
ny, by both comprehensive and acute in-'
tellects, in earnest efforts to make some j
improvements, cither iu their general plans I
or in thtir minute details, I
It is very important for the country to
havo tho military operations carried on
with tho greatest possible efficiency ; and
all of these inventions which aro realty
valuable ought to be promptly adopted.
It is impossible for tho rcfpon-iblo officers
of the Government to devote their timo to
examining tho various schemes offered ;
nnd wo would suggest to tho Administra
tion tho appointment of a competent com
mission for this purpose. There can bo
hardly a doubt that such a commission, if
tho members wero properly selected, would
contribute immensely to tho cfiioiency of
our naval and our military operations aud
would savo its cxpenso to tho country a
thousand fold. HciciHiio .'hncricun.
AcL'TH fellow was onco nskod what In
ference ho could draw from tho text of Job
"And tho asses snuffed up tho cast wind."
"Well," ho replied, "tho only inference I
I can draw is this, that it would bo a long
time before they would get fat upon it."
Our devil saya if anybody had asked
him what iuferenco ho could draw from
the text of Job "And tho asses snuffed

Two young ladies wero promenading
along tho street recently, when ono of them
slipped and camo down on tho icy pave

"before another winter 1 11 havo a man to
hang on to ; sec if I don't."

I will givo you a little of my own expe
rience, by way of showing you how I found
peace with Christ. For five years I had
a desponding heart, and been in great
trouble. 1 thought at that time that I was
tho most miserable creature that ever lived,
and I hope and trust that none of you will
suffer what 1 then endured. At n.'ght I
dreaded to close my eyes in sleep', fearing
that I might never wake again in this world.
I thought that God was angry with mo,
and thatho would send forth his judgments
to consume mo off tho faco of tho earth.
At times I would weep alone for several
hours, and could not find
and I should havo been in that unhappy
state until tho present day had it not been
for tho sovereign graco of God. I well
remember going out on ono Sabbath day.
I had listened to all sorts of sermonsome
of them good sermons ; but nono of them
wero for inc. Ono man preached the gos
pel of Christ doctrinally, another man
practical sermons, and another preached
the law ; but I think I might havo gone
that dreary round until now, but that on
tho Sunday in question I happened to turn
up a lane in which was a little Primitive
Methodist chapel. I stepped into tho place,
but the minister had not come that day,
and so his pldco was taken by a local
preacher, (as I took him to be,) a poor old
man out of tho congregation. This old
man took as his text tho words from Isaiah
xiv. 22: "Look unto mo, and bo yo saved,
all the ends of tho earth.'' Now this poor
old preacher was not au educated man by
any means. I can assure ycu lio did not
ltiko any Cnc flourlsh from tho test ho

1 hard for you to do as this, owiDg to your

to God tho iather but you must look to
Christ first. Some of you arc looking to
tho Spirit, to sco where it is at work ; but
you aro not told to do that. "Look unto
me," says the text; asd you havo only to
look as it directs. I am dying; well, look
to tho Saviour he is sitting at God tho
Father's right hand "Look unto mo."
Thus this old Primitive Methodist preach
er went on until at last ho caught sight of
me where I was sitting under tho gallery.
"Young man," hu says, "you aro misera
ble.'' And I was miserable, as ho might
hivo learned from my lookB. "You will
always bo miserable," he continued, "until
you attend to the text, until you 'look unto
Christ.' Look !" ho shouted, as only a
Primitive Methodist can shout. Aud I
did look, there aud then ; aud I trust that
I found pcaco with God. The burden
with which 1 had so long been afflicted was
gone. I went homo happy, and so marked
was tho difference iu my appesrauco that
others could sco the change. That ono
look to Christ had taken away all my

A Fast Life. A "fast lifo" cannot be
lived with impunity. Iu this field of waste
and disorder, as in every other, God's vio
lated law, however it may bo forgotten,
novcr fails to assort and vindicate itself.
"Tho vicious die early." They fade liko
shadows, or tuuiblo liko wrecks aud ruins
into tho grave often when quito youug,
almost always before forty. ''Bloody
men," says tho Psalmist, "shall not live
out half their days;" and the remark is
equally truo of "fast" men, They live
unsteady, spend their twelvo hours in six,
turn night into day, or use for caromal or
dissipation time that should bo used for
rest ; and iu their rush in tho chaso of
ploasuro get out of sight and into dark
ness, whilo others aro in tho glow and
glory of life. Many a man and many a
woman too, dies thus long before their
time, They keep such a constant steam
that tho boiler is consumed or explodes.
Tho machinery is destroyed by reckless
speed, and its inevitablo wear and tear.

"0, how good you aro, James."
"Well, let us sec, my boy," said tho
magistrate, "the court is disposed to do all
it can for your sister. But you must givo

"About .1 fortnight ago," continued tho
boy, "my poor mother died of a bad cough

BnAUTirur, Idea. In the mountains of
Tyrol, it is tho custom of tho women and
children to como out when it U bed-timo
aud sing their national songs until they
hear their husbands, fathers aud brothers
answer them from tho hills ou their return
home. On tho shores cf tho Adriatio such
a custom prevails. There tho wives of tho
fishermen como about sunset and sing a
melody. After singing tho first stanra,
they listen awhile for an answering melody
from off tho water; and contiuuo to sing
aud listen till tho well-known voice comes
borno ou tho waters, telling that tho loved
oue is almost homo. How sweet to tho
weary fisherman, as tho shadows gather
around him, must bo tho songs of tho
loved onc3 at homo, that sing to cheer him;
and how they must strengthen and tighten
the links that bind together thoio bumblo
dwellers by the sea.
