The warm blood mantled to the cheek of
James under this reproof. It is often the
case that more shame is felt for a blunder
than a crime. In this instance the lad felt
a sort of mortification at having done what
Mr. Carman was pleased to call a silly thin?.
and he made up his mind that it' tbey should
even overpay him a thousand dollars at the
bank he should bring the amount to his em
ployer, and let him do as he pleased with
the money.
"Let people look after their own mis
takes," taid Mr. Carman.
, James Lewis pondered these things in his
own heart., The impression they made was
too strong ever to be forgotten. "It may be
right," he said, but be did not feel altogeth
er satisfied.
A month or. two after, the occurrence of
the bank mistake, as James counted over
his weekly wages, just received from Mr.
Carman, he discovered that he was paid a
half dollar too much.
The first impulse of his mind was tore
turned the half dollar to his employer, and
it was on his lips to say, "You have given
me halt a dollar too much, sir," when the
uuforgotteu words, "Let people look af;er
their own mistakes," flashing upon his
thoughts, made him hesitate. To hold a
parley with evil is to be overcome.
"I must think about this," aid James,
as he put the money into his pocket, "it
it is true in one case it is true in another.
Mr. Carman don't correct mistakes that
people make in his favor, and he can't com
plain when the rule works against himself."
But the boy was far from being in. a com
fortable state. He felt that tokeep a half dol
lar would be a dishonest act- Still he could
not make up his mind to return it, at least
not then.
James did not return the half dollar, but
spent it for his own gratification. After he
had done this it came suddenly into his
head that Mr. Carman had only bean trying
him, and he was fiiled wilh anxiety and
Not long after Carman repeated the mis
take. James kept the half dollar with less
"Let him correct his own mistakes," said
he resolutely ; "that's the doctrine he acts
on with other people, and he can't complain
if he gets paid back in the same coin he puts
in circulation. I just wanted half a dollar.
From this time the fine moral sense of
Jamea Lewis was blunted. He had taken
an evil counselor into his heart, stimulated
a spirit of covetousoess, latent in almost
every mind, which caused him to desire the
possession of things beyond his ability to
James had good business qualifications,
and so pleased Mr. Carman by his intelli
gence, industry, and tact with customers,
that he advanced him rapidly. and gave him,
before he was eighteen years of age, the
most reliable position in the store. But
James had learned something more from
his employer than how to do business well.
He had lear.ed to be dishonest. ' He had
never forgotten the first lesion he bad re
ceived in this bad science ; he had acted
not only in two instances, but in a hundred,
and always to the injury of Mr. Carman.
He had long since given up waiting for mis
takes to be made in his favor, but origina
ted them in the varied and complicated
transactions of a large business in which he
was trusted implicitly ; for it had never oc
curred to Mr. Carman that his failure to be
just to the letter might prove a snare to this
young man.
James grew sharp, cunning and skillful :
always on the alert, always bright and ready
to meet any approaches toward a discovery
of his wrong doing by his employer, who
bell him in the highest regard.
Thus it went on until James was in his
twentieth year when the merchant had his
suspicions aroused by a letter which spoke
of the young man as not keeping the roost
repectable company, and as spending mon
ey too freely for a clerk on a moderate
Before this time James had removed his
mother into a pleasant house, for which he
paid a rent of four hundred dollars; his
salary was eight hundred, but he deceived
his mother by telling her it was filteen hun
dred. Kvery comfort that she needed was
fully supplied, and t-he waa beginning to
think that after a l ing and painful struggle
with the world, her happiest days bad como.
James was at his desk when the letter was
received by Mr. Carman. He looked at bis
employer and saw him change countenance
suddenly. He read it over twice and James
saw that the contents produced disturbance.
Mr. Carman glanced toward the desk, their
eyes met ; it was only for a moment, but the
look that James received made his heart
stop beating.
There was something about the move
ments of Mr. larman for the rest of the
day that troubled the young man. It was
plain to him that suspicion had been arous
ed by that letter. ! O, how bitterly did he
repent, in dread of discovery and punish
ment, the evil ot which he had been guilty.
Expo-ure would disgrace and ruin him, and
bow the head of his widowed mother even
to the grave.
"You are not well this evening," said
Mrs. Lewis, as she looked at her son's chang
ed face across the table, and noticed that he
did not eat.
"My head aches."
"Per hap the tea will make you foel bet
ter." "I'll lie down on the sofa in the parlor
for a short time. "
Mrs. Lewis followed him into the parlor
in a little while, and sitting down on the so
fa on which he a as lying, placed her hand
udoo his head. Aa. it would take . more
than the loving pressure of a mother's hand
to ease the pain fro n which he was suffer
ing. The touch of that pure hand increas
ed the pain to agony.
"Do you feel better?" asked Mrs. Lewis.
She had remained some time with her hand
on his forehead.
"Not much." he replied, and risin? as he
spoke, he added, "I think a walk in the
open air will do me good."
"Don't go out, James," said Mrs. Lewjs,
a troubled feeling coming into her heart.
"I'll only walk a few squares." And
James went from the parlor and passed in
to the street.
"There is something more than headache
the matter with him," thought Mrs. Lewis.
For half an hour James walked without
any pur pise in his mind beyond the escape
from the presence of his mother. At last
his walk brought him near Mr. Carman's
store, and on . passi.ig he was surprised at
seeing a light within.
"What can this mean?" he esked hrtuself,
a new fear creeping, with its shuddering im
pulse, into his heart.
lie listened by the door and windows, but
he could hear do sound from within.
"There's something wrong," he said;
''what cau it be? If this is discovered, what
will be the eud of it? Ruin! ruin! My
poor mother I"
The wretched young man hastened on.
walked the street for two hours, when he
returned home. Ilia mother met him when
he entered, and, with unconcealed anxiety,
asked him if he were better. He said yes,
but in a manner that only increased the
trouble she felt, aqd passed up hastily to his
own room.
Io the morning the strangely altered face
of James, as he met his moiher at the break
fast table, struck alarm into her heart He
was silent aud evaded all her questions.
A'hile they sat at the table the door bell
rung loudly. The sound startled James,
aud he Urned his head to listen iu a ner
vous way.
"Who is it?" asked Mrs. Lewis.
"A gentleman who wishes to see Mr.
James," replied the girl.
James rose instantly and went out into
the hall, shutting the dining room door as
he did so. Mrs. Lewis sat waiting her son's
return. She heard him coming back in a
few momeats; but he did not enter the
dining room. Then he returned along the
hall to the street door, and she heard it
shut. All was -silent. Starting up she ran
into the passage, but James was not there.
He had gone away with the person that
Ah, that was a sad going away. Mr.
Carman bad spent half the night in exam
ining the accounts ot James, aud discovered
frauds of over six thousand dollars. Blind
ly indignant, he fent an officer to arrest him
early in the morning; and it was-with this
officer that he went away from his mother
never to return.
"The young villian shall lie in the bed he
has made for himself!" ex laimed Mr. Car
man, in his bitter indignation. Aud he
made the exposure com Ictely. On the tri
al he showed an eager desire to have him
convicted, and presented such an array of
evidence that the jijry could not give any
ot her verdict than guilty.
The poor mother was in court, and audi
ble iu the silence that followed came her
convulsed sobs upon the air. The presid
ing judge addressed the culprit, and asked it
he bad any thing to say why the sentence of
the law should nor be pronounced agaiust
him. AH eyes were .turned upon the pale,
agitated young man, who rose vith au ef
fort, and leaned against the railing by which
he stood, as if ueediug the support.
"Will it please your honors," he said "to
direct my persecutor to come a little nearer,
so tiiat 1 cau look at him aud your houorsat
the same time ?"
Mr. Carman was directed to come for
ward to where the boy stood. James look
ed at him steadily ior a few uiouieuts, aud
tlieu turned to the judges,
"What I have to say to your honors is
this," (he spoke calmiy and distinctly,) "aud
it may iu a degree extenuate, though I can
nut exeuse my crime. I weut into that
man's store au innocent boy, aud if he had
been au houest mau I would cot have stood
before you to-day as a criminal."
Mr. Carman appealed to the court for
protection agaiust au allegation of such an
outrageous character ; but he was peremto
riiy ordered to be silent. James went on
in a firm voice.
"Only a few weeks after I went into his
employment I examined a bill by his direc
tion, and discovered an error of twenty dol
lars. The face of Mr. Carman crimsoned.
"1'ou remember it 1 see," said James,
"and I shall have cause ' to remember it
while I live. The error was in favor of Mr.
Carman. I asked it I should correct the
figures, and he answered, "No, let them
corrert their own mistakes; we don't exam
ine bills for other people's benefit." It was
my first lesson in dishonesty. I saw the bill
settled, and Mr. Carman take twenty dol
lars that was not his own. I felt shocked
at first; it seemed such a wrong thing. But
soon after he called me a simpleton for
handing back a fifty dollar bill to the teller
of a bank, which he had overpaid mo on a
check, and then
"May I ask the protection of the court?"
sa d Mr. Carman.
"Is it true what the lad says?" asked the
Mr. Carman hesitated and looked con
fused ; all eyes were on his lace ; and judges
and jury, lawyers and spectators, felt cer
tain that he was guilty of leadio; the young
man astray.
"Not long afterward." resumed Lewis.
"in receiving my wages, I found that Mr.
Carman had paid me fifty cents too much.
I was about to give it back to him, when I
remembered his remark about letting peo
ple correct their own mistakes, and said to
myself "let him correct his own errors,"
and dishonestly kept the money. Again
the thing happened.and again I kept the
money that did not of right belong to me.
This was the beginning of evil, and here I
am. If he had shown any mercy, I might
have kept silent and made no defence."
The young man covered his face with his
hands and sat down overpowered with his
feelings. His mother who was Dear him
sobbed aloud, and beuding over, laid her
hands on his bead, saying :
"My poor boy ! my poor boy I"
There were few eyes in the court room
undimmed. In the silence that followed,
Mr. Carman spoke out :
"I my character to be thus blastod on
the word.- of a criminul, your honors? Is
"Your solium oath, that this charge in
untrue," said the judge, "will set you iu
the right." It was tiie uuhappy boy's on
ly opportunity, aud the court loll bound iu
humanity to hear him.
James Lewis stood up a sain instantly,
and turned his white iuceauddaik pieic
ing eyes u; on Mr. Carman.
"Let him take the oath if he dare!" he
Mi. Carman consulted wilh his counsel
and withdrew.
After a brief conference with his associ
ates, the presiding judge said, addressing
the criminal:
"In consideration of your youth, and the
temptation to which iu tender years you
were unhappily subject, the court gives you
the slightest sentence, one year's imprison
ment. But let mo- solemnly warn you
against any furthur steps in the direction
you have taken. Crime can have no valid
excuse. It is e-Ml iu the sight of God and
man, and leads only to suffering. When
you come forth again after your brief in
carceration, may it be wilh the resolution to
die rather than commit a crime."
And the curtain fell on the sad scene in
the boy's life. AY hen it was lifted again,
and he came forth from prison a year after
ward, his mother was dead.
. Ten years afterward a man wis reading a
newspaper io a far wuHtern town. He bad
a calm, serious face, and looked like one
who had known suffering and trial.
"Brought to justice at last I" he said to
himself,as the blood came to his face, "con
victed on the charge of open insolvency, and
sent to state prison. So much for the man
who gave me in tender years the first les
sons in ill doing. But, thank God, the ot h
er lessons have been remembered. "When
you come forth again," said the judge,
"may it be with the resolution to die lath
er than commit a crime,' and I h ve kept
this injunction in my heart when there
seemed no way of escaping except through
crime ; and God helping me, I will keep it
to the end.
Mr. Clay ard the Goat.
In one of our Southern exchanges, we find
the following capital story of an old he goat,
which almost everybody in Washinetnn city
remembers as having formerly inhabited
Naylor's livcry.Pennsylvania Avenue. This
animal was probably the most independ-mt
citizen of the metropolis. He belonged to
no party, though he frequently gave passen
gers most striking proofs of his adhesion to
the leveling principles, for whenever any
body stopped in his vicinity, "Billy" was
sure to drive at him horns and all. The
boys keenly relished the fun of imitating old
long heard, and frequently so annoyed him
that he would "charge Iwenet" at lamp
posts and trees, to their i ifitiite -merriment
and satisfaction.
It so happened that one day the grand
luminary of the west, Henry Clay, was pass
ing down the avenue, and seeing the boys
intent on worrying Billy into a l'ever.stoajied
and with his characteristic humanity expos
tulated with them on their cruelty.
The boys listened in silent awe to the ap
peal of the great statesman ; but it was all
Cherokee to Billy, who the ungrateful
scamp arose majestically on his hinder
legs, and made a desperate plunge at hi"
friend and advocate. Mr. Clay, although
he had not "slain a Mexican," proved too
much for his assailant ; he seized both horn"
of the dilemma, and then came the tug of
wai Greek had met Greek. The struggle
was long and doubtful.
"Ha!" exclaimed the statestnan,"I have
got you fast, you rascal ! I'll teach you let
ter manners. But, bovs," he continued he
turning to the laughing urchins, "what shall
I do now ?"
"Why. trip up his feet, Mr. Clay," said
Mr. Clav did as he was told, and after
many severe efforts, brought Billy down on
his side. Here he looked at the boy and
imploringly said : "I never was in such a fix
The combatants were nearly exhausted
but goaty had .the advantage, for he was
gaining breath all the while that the states
man was losing it.
"Boys," exclaimed he, puffing and blow
ing, "this is rather an awkward business,
"what am I to'do now?"
"Why, don't you know?" said a little
fellow making preparations to run, as he
spoke; "all you have got to do is to let go
and run like bbies."

A Talk With Young Men.
Under this heading the Auburn New in
dulges in a conversation with yourrs; rlen,
which that class of our readers,- we' know,
will thank us for giviug prominence in the
columns of the Journal. . '
Young man, a word with you'
You have been attending school or' sever
al years, snd if you have improved your
time have acquired a fair English education.
Your parents have been at ftiuefi expense in
rearing you to your present years and stature.
They naturally feel much anxiety to1 know
what is to' result from all their labor and
outlay in your behalf. Now, iha't you are
fifteen or sixteen years' bid, they naturally
think it is time they should know what you
are good for'.-
Young friend I show those g'iwd parents
of yours that you are good fof something.
"How is this to be done ?" you ask.
It you have ever had any rittttoTr that you
wuuld make your way ill life' without work,
get rid of the foolish idi-a immediately.
Resolve tlr t yon will matte yottrself master
of a good trade.
Don't look for a "situation.". He only
who is skillful in some trade, art, or business,
is "master of the siroatifm." Many a young
man has been rui;ed by waiting for a situa
tion or ati opening.
Think over the Itfrtg list of useful and
"profitable trades, and study to know which
is best suited to your tastes and abilities.
Talk with your father arfd mother on the
subject. Their longer experience in the
world, and their affection lor you will cause
their advice to be invaluable to you.
If ihey are wise parents they will not try
to make this, that, or the other out of you
to gratify parental pride, or foolish notions
of respectability.
Having carefully come to a conclusion as
to what trade is best for you. proceed to
learn it by going into wme shop or manu
factory where your chosen art is thoroughly
un lerstood, and successfully practiced.
Don't expect to make money at first. The
trade you acquire will be worth much more
than money. As soon as your services are
worth more than the trouble of teach ing you,
and the value of the material you spoil, you
may expect to make some money.
Apply yourself diligently and attentively
to your business, rnd in the course of no
long time you will find yourself master of a
trade worth more than money. A rich man
is richer by beimi master of a trade.. Pos
sessed of a trade, a poor man is independent
at the outset, and if industrious, economical
and prudent, will become rich in a lew years.
Our advice is not given to the poor young
man alone. If a boy has a fortune in pros
pect he should learn some branch of honest
in ustry, in which he may profitably and
usefully employ his capital when it comes to
him. In the mutations of human affairs
his fortune may fly from him, ard in such a
case the trada acq tired in youth would be a
gmtd thing to tall back upon.
Young Peter, of Russia, was heir to an
Empire with all its vast revenues, but he
wisely applied himself to the work of learn
ing the art of -bip building. He was a bet
ter, a wiser, and a happier king, because he
wa? a ship carpenter.
We have known the sons of wealthy pa
rents to serve a faithful and industrious ap
prenticeship to a trade. Early and late, day
by day, they have applied themselves to
their mechanical toil. Such young men show
themselves capable of building iscful and
enduring superstructures oh the foundations
of wealth and influence laid by their fathers.
Go thou and do likewise.
Shall we Meet Again ? A BeaUtiFul
Extract. The following waif,afloat on the
'"sea of reading," we clip from an eichange.
We do not know its paternity, but it contains
some wholesome truths. beautifully set forth :
"Men seldom think of the great event of
d. stli until the -ha 1 )s fall across their own
pnth, hidinir forever from their eyes the
traces of the loved ones whose living smiles

dark valley, although its passage n;av lead

is no appeal of relief from the great law
which dooms us to dust. Wc flourish and
we fade as the leaves of the forest, and the
flower that blooms and withers in a day has
no frailer hold upon life than the mightiest
monarch that ever shook the earth with his
footsteps. Generations of men appear and

In the beautiful drama of Ion, the instincts
cf immortality, so eloquently ottered by the
death devoted Greek, finds a deep response
in every thoughtful soul. When about to
vieid his young existence as a sacrifice to
fate, his beloved Clemanthe asks if they
shall not meet again, to which he replies :
"I asked that dr.adful question of the hills
that look eternal of the stars among whose
fields of axure mv raised spirit hath walked
upon thy living face. I feel that there is
something in the love that mantles through
its beauty that cannot wholly perish. We

You can judge of a man's religion very
well by hearing his talk, but you can't judge
of his piety by what he says any more than
you can judge of bis amount of linen by the
