A Word to Meddlera. 's-
:'.Tht is more contemptible , than a scandal
- monger I; What is more to be dreaded than
the spirit of mean, low. gossip that pervades
too many hearts? -',., ; i .';.- . "- -. : '..,--. .'", ...
- There is a class of meddlers in the world
who mind everybody's business' but their own.
.Instead of endeavoring to discover, the; gool
trails in a person's character, they seek with
the utmost diligence for the evil. . When
neighbor or acquaintance falls into an error,
they do not administer a reproof in that Chris
tian like manner.. recommended, in the Bible
On the contrary, these gossips constitute them
selves 'reporters-iilhief of . all misdemeanors
which come nnder their watchful eyes. Every
word, look and deedhowever trivial, is mag
nified by the brazen tongue of rumor, till it is
a difficult task to ascertain tlie truth. .
..'-ne can have .no confidence , in tbose who
would rehearse us long stories about the faults
..and follies of others, for we believe, and .with
-reason, too, that we bare no hope of escape.
The sitfeerest nature is, by their rnisreprcsen-
lauon, maae to- seem artful and designing
truth is distorted into falsehood, and reb'gion
into a mere pretence. They are always won
dering why people choose certain courses m
.life, and why they entertain views opposite to
their own. They are constantly on the alert
; that they may be duly apprised of the rnove-
; ments of those around them. -. ."
' :Does Mrs, Heine, the . rich lady across the

their opinion, that she can no longer waste, so
' much, in extravagance and hat some ominous
'reverses threatened, to., bring her down to' a
Jevel with them; ... -'" ;, . .
Does the poor school mistress leave her sit
uation on account of failing health, they come
.to the sage conclusion, that though she has
' the plea of illness for an excuse .they believe:
..the committee saw ihat she had been there
long enough. " ' ; : -..i.i--t ;

' sieigh-aidiiig with a: widow;' f s
; Snow had fallen,- the young of the village
got up - a grand sleighing party to a ' country
tavern at some distance, and the interesting
Widow Lambkin sat in the same sleigh in 'th'e
same seat, and under the same buffalo, as my
self. r " ' - ' "..'-'
'Oh! don't.P she exclaimed, as we came to
the first bridge, catching me by the arm, and
turning her veiled lace towards me, while her
little eyes twinkled through the moonlight.
. f'Don't what?' I asked.' j , ' '
, Oh! now don't she repeated supplicatingly
'. I'm not doing anything,' said I, rather con
fusedly; ' " ' :
'Well, but I thought you were going to take
toll, replied she.
'Toll!', replied I, 'what's that?' (wasn't I
green?) .-. ; ,-
' Mr. Meadows pretends he don't know what
toll is!' Exclaimed the widow, ber clear
laugh ringing out above the music of the bells.
'Indeed, I don't then,' I said laughing in
turn. - : - . . ..
Don't know that the gentlemen, when they
go on a sleighing party, claim a kiss as. toll
when they cross abridge?'
'Well, I never f ' . . ..
, Wlieu next we came to a bridge I. claimed
toll; the struggle of the widow to hold the veil
way not sufliciet to tear it, and, somehow, when
the veil was removed, ber face was turned di
rectly towards my own, and, in the glittering
of the moon-light,' the hprso trotted on him
self, toll was taken for the first time in his life
by Dr Meadows. ;
Soon we came to a long bridge, but the wid
ow said; it was no use to resist, "and she paid
up without a struggle. ; ;
; 'But you .won't take toll for every arch, will
you, Doctor?' r ; ; .

tbe question., '...,.,, . ' .. :. . ','

'' :';? '. . The Heroic Miner, " .. .
A poor but pious miner in Cornwall, was
down deep in the earth ; with another miner
sinking a shaft. The- were blasting rocks, and
their custom was,' after the rock was charged,
for one first' to ascend in the bxickt-t, and th?
other to wait until the bucket came down again, ,
then ignite the fuse; get into the bucket, give
the signal to the man above, and be drawn. to
the top before' the explosion; In the present
case, the train unexpectedly took fire. The
fuse wasTiissing, both men rushed to the buck
et, goHn.and gave the signal to nofst; Ifcut tHe;
man above epld not draw them both. They,
at once saw their danger; both; could nbt ' cs-
icape,-anti .dela3wft.s death. One of the mi
ners was pious. Looking foi a moment at his
companion and -stepping from the bucket, be
said, ,' Escape for thy life; in a few irioments I
shall be in hearen.' The bucket was drown up,
and the man was safe. ! ; ' r
, Jtager to know the late of ms magnanimous
companion, he bent over the ; mouth of the,
shaft- . Just then . the explosion, rumbled '. be-'
low, and a splinter struck him on the-brow.:
leaving a mark lie will carry to the grave .7-1
They soon commenced laboring among the
fallen rocks to extricate the corps. At last
they -heard . a- voice. .Their, friend was yet
alive. They readied him and found him with
out injury, or scratch. , All' thai be could tell
of the fearful scene was, that the moment his
friend was gone, he sat down and took up a
stone and held it before his face., When asked
what induced him to let .his companion escape,'
be. replied,. ieiCreJ niy soui ta be,,sqfei I u-ns

' . ' Irish Anecdote.
Some years ago, when the beautiful painting
Of Adam and Eve-was exhibited in Ireland, it
be'fiafne tbe chief topic" of conversation. Fi
nally, a poor, illiterate peasant went to' see it.'
The light was so" arranged ; as!. to reflect on the
picture,, and to leave the spectator in darknes.8.
;The poasaht, as he entered' the room to see
iis first parents, was struck with sq . ' much as
tonishment,- that 1 he remained sijeecbless-ifor
some moments.- .Tic stood likc a statue,' and
as though his feet we incorporated with the
oaken floor of. the rooin;'''; At ;)aji with an ef

soldier ot a saUorV.in'rs.': Mart?s dillieulty;' is
i-his mother. ' She clings to hi memory -and
aflection, in the midst of all the forgetfalness
and hardihood induced by a. roving life. The
last message be leaves is for her, his last whis
per breathes her name. -: The mother, as she
instils the lessons .of piety and filial obliga
tion into the iiieart of her infant son, should
alwaj's feel that her labor is not in vain. She
may drop into the grave.". But she-has lcft.be

Cntiors Ccstom. The causes for which a
Mahometan woman : may ak, a divorce are
clearly laid down in Koran y. and her evidence
is sufficient, because the Mohamctan law sup
poses that a woman must be violently agriev
ed before the' modesty of her sex will allow
her to appear "in public with such an applica
tion. So careful is the law to spare her feel
ings, that she is not required to recount hei
injuries, unless of her own free will ; all she
has to do is to place her. s-lippers reversed, that
is with the sole upward, before the Cadi and
the case is finished; the divorce is. granted
without further inquiry. - .
The Chantauque Democrat tells a pretty
good story concerning the Post Office in the
town of Westfield :
A letter was put iiito the box, the appear
ance of which denoted that the writer was un
used to thetuse of stamps,' and' had failed to
make one stick at all. lie had tried and vain
ly tried, but the inveterate portrait 'of, rairi
lin would curl up. At last, in despair be pin
ned'it to the'envelope, and wrote just under it
"PAin, if the d- d thing sticks
