I had spent some years in the westin the prac
tice of my profession, and was on a visit to my
friends ill New England. Among those who
Caine first•on my list of friendship, was Fred. El
liott, and I arranged to visit him as soon as I
could. Fred. and I had grown up together as
buys; we had entered college together, and grad
uated together; and when I c"mmenced the prac
tice of law, he entered his uncle's store in the ca
pacity of book-keepercwith a good promise ahead.
And there was another between us—a near and
dear one to us, who where both orphanerand
who had few relatives living. Fred had married
my own cousin, sweet Hattie Keene. Ile had
married her since I went away, though the event
had been upon the docket a long time before.—
And thus I was to meet twoof my dearest friends
beneath the same roof.
- It was just before dusk when the carriage left
me at the house which had been pointed out as
the one occupied by my friend, and which lat
once recognized as the former house of old Tim
o'hy Elliott, the uncle of whom I hare spoken.
My summons -Was answered by a light, quick
step on the ball floor ; and when the door was
opened I recognized the fair, fond features of lily
dearly remembered cousin. She was five tears
older than when I saw her last, and grown tole
a little more womanly, aud a little nom,. sealii-.
In fact, she had put on the holiest of chin peters
—that of a mother. The beauty, the life, the an
miation, the r wiles ot (iiiief years had nut gone ;
hut they were elevated with. sof:tined by, and
blended into, that noble character. At first she
did not know me, but when I called her Hattie
as I used to in the olden times, she caught me by
the hand, and in a moment inure her soft. white
arms were around me neck., She was a sister tin
me in heart and Stud, and with a sister's love she
greeted me:
We went into tie parlor, -where auastral lump
_was already burning upon the centre table, and
where a fire was reflecting a genial warmth from
a polished grate—fog Mwas autumn and the e-v
-enings were quite cool. Upon a chair, may by_
the table, sat a little boy of some three years, -

these were Hattie's children—two as bright and
beautiful beings as et er made in an earthly
bonie. She told them that I was Uncle Emoih.
She had neither sister nor brother, BO lIN as forc

Within an hour after we adjourned to the par

But it would not do—l had seen too much. Hat

"Certainly." I said, "and of course the whole
property fell to you."
"Yes," he replied, "and it was given to me, and

ness. Upon the strength thereof, I have entered
society, and responsible offices have bean pat

"Well," said I, as my friend paused again,

moody reverie into tqich he had fallen. "-You
know that my father and Uncle Timothy once
had a serious falling nut."
" Yes." I told him. "1 Karr some recollection
of it; but that was a great many years ago. We
were boys then."
"Ay—it was near twenty years ago," said
Fred; but I remember it very well. for I recol
lect how badly it made mother feel. The es
trangement lasted for some years.; and during
that time the bitterness was very strong. My
uncle declared that he would have nothing more
to do with his brother; and under the influence of
this feeling he made a will conveying the great
bulk of his property to Staffer, the son of his HlS
ter's husband. ;You rernember that, don't your;

Timothy Elliott's sister, had not bren considered
much of a man, and it was not' generally sup

care of his wife's,relatives, gave any promise of a
valuable life.
" ' And," contiuued Fred, "you probably recol
lect when my father was very sick, Uncle Timo
thy came to him and the Quarrel was thrown
away, and from that time, wink, my father lived,
their brotherly love was warm and generous."
"Yes. I know all that."
"Well, at that time my uncle spoke of the will
he bad made,
and be would deitroy it, and
I believe he did. I know it as well as I know
anything which I did not see with nif own eyes.
Before my uncle died he told me that he should
make no will, for there was no need of it. He
said I was the only lawful heir, and that was
enough. My uncle died and I mine into posses
sion of the property; and I hare enjoyed it, and
have tried to do good with it; and I have added
something to the original fortune, for I have been
careful and prudent. In a dark hour, however,
a storm bus Inint upon me. It sbemed only a
cloud at first. but itproved ti fearful one. John
Staffer has returned. He - went away about ten
years ago—went away bedause my uncle would
not give him a home any longer—and has now

" Yea, I recollect it now."
" Well," continued Fred, " this old villain of a
lawyer came back here about six months ago, and
ere long he and Staffer had their heads together.
In a little while Staffer came and laid claim to my
uncle's property - ; and when asked what he meant,
he produced a paper which appesred to be the
last will and{ testament of Mr. Timothy Elliott.

In short, the case Moked dark enough, and I dared
not give my; found much hope. Yet I promised
to think of the matter, and be present with him at
the trial. ;
On the following morning I got away :as soon
as possible, for I could not bear to hear Hattie's
grief; but I promised to come back again, and,
as I held her hand pt the door, told her to keep
up a good heart -

him at the hotel, and passed a happy hour With
him; for 1 had been his pet ih boyhood, and it was
by his generous bounty that I went through col

could. Ile had been well acquainted with Timo

only will tt hieli Elliott had ever made had been
When the hour of trial arrived it was announc
i.d that I should assist in the case. I took my seat
with the c - Oansel already engaged. 'As the trial
went on. irleertairily did look dark enough for my
friend. Sfepheu Akers—u dark, browned, foxy
looking'inau, with a hair of a grizzled red, which
stood out like a-hedgehog's quills upon his small
'head—swore that this will was the will which he,
as Timothy Elliott's attorney, had made eighteen
years before, and that he had been iu posses
sion of it ever since, until he had lodged it in the
probate office. And he also swore to the receipt
of letters from Elliott, bidding him keep the will
safe. There was no getting around his teatime
ay-it was plain and direct, and we could not
break through it.
An old wan named Jackson, who had been one
of the witnesses of the old will, testified that he
believenhe instrument now before him was the
one to which he had put his band. lie could say
that this was his own signature. He was an hon•
est bid fellow, and admitted that he, had always
supposed the will had been destroyed. •
For our client we had nothing of clear, plain
facts to help us. We had any amount of impress
ions and opinions in our favor. It had been the
impression of all Timothy Elliott's intimate friends
that the will which he had made had' been des
troyed. lie had talked to them in' that way.
And yet not one 01 them could swear that they
had ever heard him say, directly, that such was
the %et. 1.0 short, though the beiief•in the des

As the case now stood. 'could haven° hnie. What

the jury upon the right and justice of .the thing,
there could have been but. one opinion, upon the
law and fact. My heart sank within me.
Where the counsel for appellant ready to
rest their case?
I held the will in my hand. I believed it to be
a forgery. I believed the only will which Timo
thy Elliott ever made had been destroyed. and
that Akers in consideretion •of a share in the
spoils, had, from the Old draft in his hands, for
ged this instrument, counterfeiting even Jackson's
signature so nicely that the simple old mnu could
not disown it. I was about to give the instrument
up. and my last hint hope with it, when a_ditu
murk in one corner of the sheet caught my eye.
It was a stamp—an impression on the paper—not
so large as the point of a tiuger's end, but I bent
my head fini a moment, to call to mind something
of the past.
"What hi it I" asked I'red, who had noticed
my emotion. . .

"Timothy': Elliott made it," he replied; "I
merely wrote it down for him as he dictated."

Fred, when he tried to apCak of what had passed;
at once broke down under the weight of joy and
gratitude that was upon him. He was safe, his
fortune was safe; and his wife and little ones
were still blessed.
Some asked me bow I happened to detect that
silent witness away up in the corner of that pa

dozen reams of,that paper when- he commenced
making it, and I had been using it ever since, so
that the stamp, was very familiar to me. The

Small, delicate boy patiently waited with the
crowd which ad gathered in theroom of the -

the first day I have. been out. I came to see if
you cannot do something for me.
The President looked kindly and tenderly at

that he had no home. "Where is your father ?"
said the Pteident. "He died in

swered the boy. "Where is your mother 1", "My
mother is dead also, I have no father, no mother,
no brother, sisters," and bursting into tears, the
boy said, "and no friends. Nobody cares for
me." The scene was very affecting. Mr Lill
coin's eyes filled with tears, he said to him: "Can't
you sell rurpapers. "No," said the boy, "I am

I must leave ; and. I have no money, and no
friends, and nu place to go to."
The scene was indescribable tender and affec

his drawer a card' on which he wrote his wishes,
that the officers should care (iu his own aiteetio 2

When the card was handed to the idrummerl
boy, a smile lit up his face, all wet with tears,

Three years ago, the gentleman I spoke of told
us a story of Mr Lincoln, which 1 have not thought
of since, until now. When Mr. Lincoln received
the news of his first election, he came home to
tell Mrs. Lincoln about it. She was up stairs in
the bedroom. and atter telling the news, in v,alk

glass. Immediately he threw himself down upon
the lounge, and - told Mrs.Lineoln he thought he

face in the glass which he'could not account for.
It was perfect, but very pale. "Oh," said Mrs.

ONE'S NATIVE LAND.—President -Johnson,
although not given much to poesy or blank verse,
has nevertheless some taste for the muses. In
reply the other day. to a delegation from North
Carolina, his Dative State, he said :
"The name of North Carolina, God bless her,
is dear to me. hiller bosom rest ite - renniins of
my honored father, lying in the. east of the city
of Raleigh. North Carolina is my Jmother, though
not my Alma Mater. Seine may have said that
North Carolina is a good State to emigrate from,

- A - MELAttcritotir Tatrrn.—When a rakish
youth goes astray, friends gather around him in
order to restore him to the path of virtue. Gen
tleness and kindness are lavished upon him to win
him back again to innocence - andpeace. No one
would suspect that-he had ever sinned. But when
a poor, 'confiding girl is betrayed, she receives the
brand of society, end is hencelhrth driven from
the ways of virtue. The betrayer is honored, res
pected, esteemed; but there is no peace for her
this side of the grave. Society has but few loving,
helping hands for her, no smile of peace,' no voice
of forgiveness. These are earthly ; mortalities un
known to heaven. There is a deep wrong irk them,
and fearful are tne* consequences.

the ceremony of knocking, saying:
"Will you. accept a tract of the Holy Land ?"
meaning the four pages of the letter-press he had
in his hand. The man of the house instantly re
"Yes, be jaberg; a whole section, if you give a
gond title; but I'd like to know if there be much
fever'n ague there to bother a poor LW?" The
colporteur retreated.

IN the days when Connecticut was largely en
gaged iu breeding mules for the Southern market,
