A Minn DEED. —Some months since.
It poor German reighhor of Gerrit Smith
was clisrged with murder. A singular
crimltination of unfavorable circumstances
induced a general belief that he was guilty,
and the publin excitement against him
was very strong. Mr. Smith visited the
suspected man in the jail, and became con
vinced that lie was innocent. In the face
of a hostile public sentiment, he volunteer.
ed his services as counsel for the poor
German, spent nearly a thousand dollars
Irom his own muse in collecting evidence.
and argued his case before the jury. Hy
his untiring exertions,lhe dark cloud of
unfavorable circumstances was cleared up.
and the innocence of his client made
manifest, not only to the court and jury,
but to the public. Mr. Smith, with char
acteristic beneficence, crowned Ida magni
rurally by giving the poor German a small
farm and V.OO in mime). Nobleness like
this is its own prairie and its own reward.
We wish it were less rare.

at any lime. we should lel them slip"
"Now, my brethren," said'Dow—whea
he had stated and enlarged upon his argn
ment---"let me take a case, and a very
likely one to happen. Nay, I'm not at all
sure that it hain't happened, awl not a
hundred miles off. Well, here la fvfajoi
Smith, who becomes converted. He joins
the church, and is safe as a codfish, pick
eted, packed, and in port. Of course •his
calling and election are sure. He can't
let 'cm slip. He can't fall from grace—
not he ! • Don't bo too certain of that, my'
brethren Don't be too sure of that, ma

Major Smith mind you. Ha is a very ,
fair sort oi 'a man, as' the world goes.- , -
Nevertheless, they du say \ that he was in
the habit of taking, now and then, a glass
or two more than was good for him. He
was food of a warm gin toddy, especially
on a cold day, for ho was subject to wind
on the stomach ; and then, is order to set
tle his toddy, he would take a glass of flip,
and then to settle his flip, he'd take a glass
of toddy agin. These he uaully took le
the afternoon and at Northrup's tavern.
"But, as I say, one day Major Smith wan
converted, and taken into the church,'and
so he must reform. He must give -op
toddy and flip, and Northrup's tavern.—
And he has gin them all up—for he is
perfectly sincere—mind you. Well, some
weeks later, on the afternoon of a cold
blustering day in December, he happous
to be passing by Northrup's tavern. Just
at that time, as the devil will have it—for the
devil is always looking for a chance—his
old friend and bottle companion, Nate
Seymour, comae to the door, and sees the
Major. Well, the littler rides up, and
they shake hands,,and talk over the news,
and fleetly Nate says, "Won't you come
in a minute, 3lajor ?"
"Now, as I tell you, it's a cold winter's
day, and the Major says he'll just git down
and Warm his fingers. He won't drink
anything of course. but he thinks it best
not to break all at once with his old friends.
for they may say' he's proud. Perhaps
he'll have a chance to say a word in sea
son to some one. So he goes in, and, as
it happons, Nate just then puts the red hot
poker into a mug of flip. How it bubbles
and simmers and foams IVhat a nice u.
dor it does scud forth into the room !
And jest then the landlord grates in a little
nutmeg. What a ploasunt snood is that to
poor, shivering human natur e on a cold

major. The major says to himself, "Ili
just put it to my lips, spas not to seem
frumptioos and unreasonable, but I won't
drink any." Si he takes it, and it feels
mighty warm and nice to his cold lingers.
He looks at it; Its fumes rise to his nostrils;
he remembers the joys of other dap ; he
puts it to his lips
"Well, and what then ? Oh nothing;
my brethren--only I tell you, that, elect
or no elect, that is a very slippery spot for
the major !"
The effect of this upon an' audience to
whom such language was adapted, especial.

who, after having been taken into the
church, had backslidden to his old habits,
may be easily appreciated. Who could ar
