and I resolved that 013 the next Sabbath ; {
as lie came from school, I would send for

however, that I wee oue' day •in a store, !
waiting for the transaction of sonic -hush:
nem, and having picked up au old paper I:
read and re-read, while delayed, -until at,
last my eye fell open an advertisement of , l
"A Lost 'Boy !--Information wanted of a
boy named Arthur —," (I will not give
his real name, for, perhaps he is still lir. ,
ing ;) atid.then followed a description' of
the boy—exactly eorresponding with -that
of the young .conviet—Arthur lamb 1.--
Then there was somebody 4 .w . ho.'eared for
the poor boy, if, indeed it. was him ;
haps s mother, his father, his brothers and
sisters, who were searching .for
The advertisement was nearly a ,year old:
—yet I doubted not—and soon as the con• i
victs were lucked no, I sent for 'Arthur
Lamb. Ile came, as a matter of cootie,
with the same pale • uncomplaining face
and hopeless gait—thinking, no doubt, that
something huitgone wrong, and been laid
to his charge.
I was examining the Convicts' Register
when ho came in ; cud when I looked , up,
there he stood a perfect image of de.
spair. I^ asked him his name. Ho re-
plied :
"Arthur what ?" said I sternly.
"Arthur Lamb,"" 'no answered
hesitatingly. •
"Have you a father or mother living?"
His eye brightened—his Noice quivered
as tie exclaimed :
"Oh'. have you hoard from.mether ?
is she alive ? .is she well 1" and tears,
which I had never seen him shed 'before,
ran like great rain-drops down his cheeks.
As he becotne calm from suspense,. I told
him I had not heard from his parents, but
that I had a paper.l wished him to read.:
lie took the advertisement which I had
out from • the paper, and as be read it ho
exclaimed : •

I told hint I Must write ; and that it
would be a .lighter blow to his. mother's
feelings, to know : where he was, than the
terrible uncertainty which must hanq hpr
mind day and night. So ho conscntod, - ;
and taking him to my room, I drew frOin
him, in subStatice, the following story r
Uis father was a respectable and.wealthy
mechanic in an interior town of iho State
of New York. At the holding of the
State -Agrieultufal pair, in his entire
own, he got acquainted with two stran
ger oys, older than himself, who porsua
