THE REWARD OF MERIT.
Annie had arrived at the mature age of (do not
start, reader,) twenty-seven, and yet in a state of
single blessedness. Somehow or other she had
not even fallen in love yet. " Had she DO offer?" .
What a - simple question! you ever know
half a million of dollars to go - begging ? Offers?
Yes - , - scores of them! It May be accounted as
one of her oddities, perphape, but whenever the
subject happened to be touched upon by her' fa
ther, Annie would say that she wanted some one
who could love her for herself, and she mast have
ance biz., and how should she in her pres
rut position? Thus matters stood, when , Annie
was led tv form and execute what will appear a
very strange resolution—but she was a resolute
girl. We must ninv go back six years.
One dark, rainy morningin November, as our old
friend was looking composedly at the cheerful fire
in the grate in his counting-room, really indulging
in some serious reflections on the pastaud future,
the far future, too, a gentleman presented himself
and inqqired for Mr. Bretnen. The old man ut
tered ndt .a word, but merely - bowed. There
was that hi his looks which said "I am he." ,
The stranger might have been some thirtyyears
or so of age. He was dressed in black, a mourn
ing weed was, on his hat, and there was some
thing in his appearance which seemed to indi
cate that the fnend whose loss he - deplored had
recently departed. The letter of introduction
which ho presented to Mr. B. was quickly yet
carefully perused, and as it was somewhat unique,
we shall take the liberty of submitting it to the
inspection of the reader:
"Friend Paul:—This will introduceio thee,
friend Charles Copeland. He has come to thy
city in pursuit of business. I have known him
from a youth up. Thou mnyestdependupon him
for aught that he can do, and shall not lean as
upon a broken reed. If thou mast du anything
for him Wei - inlayed peradventure benefit thyself
and find cause to rejoice.
"Thy former and preseht friend.
"It is not every one that can, get old Micha
Loomis' endorsement , on his character," said
Paul Bremen, to himself, as he folded up the let
ter of the well-known associate of former days.
" Old Micha is good for a quarter of a million, or
fur anything else—it will do—l want him—get
ing old. badness inereasmg—must have some
more help—now as well as any thee"
The old gentleman looked at all this, as he
stood gazing m perfect silence on the man before
him. At length he opened his lips;
- "Mr. Copeland, you know all about books?"
"I have had some few years experience."
"Any objection to a place here? Pretty close
work—only one thousand a year."
"When can you begin ?"
A real smile shone on the old man'sTace. It
lingered there like the rays of the setting sun,
among the clouds bf evening, , lighting up those
seemingly hard, dirk features.
A stool was pushed to the new corner, books
were Opened, matters explained, directions given,-
the pen was dipped iu the ink, and in snort, be
fore an bout had passed uni•ay, you would have,
thought' that the old man -and young man had
known each other for years. -
In reference to our new friend, it will be RA
-eient to remark, that be had been litielally educa
ted, as the phrase goes, and though he bad enter-.
ssi early into business, he had not neglected the
cultivation of his mind and heart. -He bad found
time to cherish a general acquaintance with the
most noteworthy authors of the day, both literary
and religious, and with many of past times. After.
a few years of success in the pursuits to which he
bad devoted himself, misfortune came thick and
fast upon him. He found himself left with
scarcely :any property, and alone in the world,
save his two only daughters.
As year after year passed away, he grew stea
dily in the confidence of his employer, who felt,
though he said it'not, that in him he possessed a
tEC , l , 4lre. -
Very little indeed was said by either of them,
not connected with the routine of business, and
there had been no intercourse whatever between
them, save in the eounting•roour. Thus nix years
went by, towards the close of which period - old
Mr Bremen wa4 found looking with much fre
qUency and earnestness at the young woman be
tore hod ; something was • evidently brewing in
the old head. What could it he 7 And then, too,
he looked so curiously. The Irish servant was
puzzled. " Sure." said James, " something's
coming." Annie, too, was somewhat perplexed,
tor these looks dwelt much on her.
" What is it, father ?" she said to him onemorn•_
irig at the breakfast table, as he sat gazing stead
fastly in her face ; " do tell me."
" I wish you'd have him 7" burst forth like an
avalanche. " Known him for via years—true as
a ledger—a gentleman—real sensible man—don't
talk much—regular as clock work—prime for'
businesa—worth his weight in gold."
" Have who, father 7 What arc you talking

"My bead clerk, Copelan'd—you don't know

"Marry my father's clerk ! what would people

"Father, are you serious 1" -
"Serious, child!" • and he looked so, , .
Annie was a chiiaf the ,old block; a strong
minded, resolute girl. 'A new idea seemed to

"I see, I see, and one of those rare smiles il
luminated tiisvihole face. It actually got oetrieen
his lips, parted them asunder, glanced upon a set'
of teeth, but little the Worse _for wear, and was
reeling there, when he left thehouse for his noun
ting.room.- The twilight of that smile had not yet
gone, when be reached the well-knoWn Sot; and
bowed, and looked "good morning" to those Whist
employ, for old Paul was, after his fashion, a prt
lite man: On the morning of that dayvehatlooks'
were directed to our old friend Charles,
so peculiar,' so full of some th ing, that the head
clerk could not but notice them, and that too,
with some alarm. Whet was coming 7 At length
the volcano burst forth.
"Copeland, my good fellow, why-don't yon get
h wife 7"
Had a thunderbolt fallen at his feet he - could
not have been More astounded. Did Mr. Bre
men say that, and in the counting-room, too?
The very ledger seemed to blush at the Mtn:Aw l .
tion of such a subject. He, for the -Bret time,
made a blot on the fair page before him.
"Early—why don't you get a wife?—know,just
the thing for you—prime article—poor enough to
be itire--.what of that....a fortune in a wife, you
know—a sort of a relation of mine--don't want tr-k y
meddle with other' people's affairs, know your
own business best—can't help thinking yOu'll ire
happier—must see her."
Now the fact is, that Charlelbad for some time
past thought so himself; but how the old man
should have divined his feelings was quite a puzzle
to him. In the-course of the day,a note was put
into Mr. Bremen's hands by James, his Irish ser
vant, the contents of which produced another grim
smile. When the moment for his return home
arrived, Mr. B. handed a Sealed document of ra- -
ther imposing form to Charles; 'lisping: "Cope.

The clerk saw on the outside, Mrs. Richards,
No. 67, H— street. The door bell was rung.
The servant ushered Copeland Into a small; neat
parlor, where sat a lady apparent/T. to/may-five
or thirty years of age, plainly dressed, eau
in knitting a stocking. Our friend bowed, and
inquired for Mrs. Richards. - • •
"She is not in, but is expected preseritly; will
you be seated?" • There was an ease, and, quiet

the conversation grew. so interesting that Mrs.
Richards was nearly forgotten. Her absence was
strangely protracted, but at length she made her
appearance. The document was presented ;' a
glance at the outside.
"Mr. Copeland?" Charles bowed.
"Miss Peyton " The . _ young lady bowed, and
thus they were introduced. There was no par
ticular reason for remaining any, longer, and our
friend took his departure.
That night Annie said to Mr. 8., "I' like his
" Forward ; march!" said old Paul, and he
looked at his daughter with vast satisfaction.
"The ould man's -as swats to-night as a new
pertatee," said James to the cook.
The next day Charles Copeland came very near
writing several times, "Miss Peyton, Dr." as he
was making oat some bills of merchandise sold.
"Delivered the paper last evening?"
"Mrs. Richards is an old friend—bumble in cir
cumstances---the young lady, Peyton—worth her'
weight in gold any day—have, her myself if I
"How much you remind me of Mr. 8.," said
Charles one evening to Annie; "I think yon. said
you were a relation of his 7"
"I am a relative of his through my mother,"
was the grave reply.
Mrs. Richards turned away to conceal-a-amße.
- Somewhat later than usual on that dig Mink
reached her -father's house. There Was ho-mis
taking the expression of her countenance,. 'Hap
piness was written there. •
"I see, I see," said the old man; "the account
is closed, books balanced,havd it all through'
in short time. Yon are a sensible girl—no foolish
puss—just what I want—bless you, child, bless
The next day Paul came, for almost the first
time in his life, rather late to his counting room.
Casks and boxes seemed to be starting with won-'_
llth mo., 18—.
" Copeland you are a Ins fellow—heard from
Mrs. Richards—proposal to my relation,

something to say.
" How much interest he seems to taki in this
matter," said Charles. - " He's a kind old fellow
in his way ; a little rough, but g.liod at heart."
Yes Mr. Copeland, even kinder than you think'
for: . 4 - .
At eight o'clock precisely the door bell of Mr.
Bremen's mansion rung Mr. Charles Copeland
was ushered in by friend James. • Old Paul took
him kindly by the hand, add turninground abrupt
ly, introduced him to "My daughter, 'Miss Annie
Peyton Bremen," and immediately withdrew;
Charles will you forgive Me this ?" He was
too mach astonished to make any reply. "If you
only knew all my feelings and motives, I am sure
That the motives and feelings weie ex

as he entered the room, " no treeof a long engage

I have now finished my storY;reader.-.' , I. have
given you the facts. I cannot say, kowevei, that,
I approve of the deceptitui practiced upon our
friend Charles. As, however, our Lordcommen
ded the " unjust steward because he acted wise
ly," so I suppose the gorid sense shown by the
young lady an choosing a husband for the 'sake of
what he was, and not .for the sake of what he
might have possessed, merits our approbation.

A cumous care has transpired at Cleveland.
On Saturday, two youpg ladies applid for trans
portation to Washington, justifying their applica

excited the Cuipicion `of the ladies of the Sanitary

of investigations to the Provost Marshal , and the
