The man looked up with a smile. His
wife, sitting opposite, understood him, and
smiled also, then there was a silence for a
few minutes.
"Better than all our worldly pleasures of
the past," she murmured.
"Far, far better!"
Thus these two children of God, born of
the Spirit within a few short months, talked
of the kingdom and its righteousness.—
They sat in a richly furnished room. The
surroundings spoke of wealth, liberality
and good taste in their possessor. Mirrors
and pictures glittered in the ruddy lightof
a blazing fire. The two---.lohn Meredith
and his wife—were alone, reading the
Word of God. Their hopes as well as their
hearts new-born, and they rejoiced togeth
er in the Saviour of sinners. By-and-by
the Bible was laid upon the shelf; prayer
ascended heavenward, and then Mrs. Mere
dith took out her knitting,.
-John," she said, a few moments after.
The evening paper rustled in his hands
as the old man looked up.
"What kind of present were you think
ing of getting for the children r"
"Well, I haven't thought yet," was the
reply. "UPar little ones! they shall have
all their heart's desire. Harry's two girls
will want dolls and a few knick-knacks,
and Helen's Isi)s, sleds, skates, and some
thing usetul as well as pretty. What do
you sigh for, wile !"
I was thinking of Martha."
The paper fell from the old man's nerv
ous grasp lie snatched his spectacles
from his forehead and wiped them with
vehemence. His face took an expression
of agonizing sorrow, and finally, unable to
control his emotions, his head fell, he bow
ed himself upon his arms, and shook with
suppressed sobs.
'•Father, I didn't maw to make you feel
so badly," said the womith, looking at him,

rigid fingers—the batfry tears tailing un

thinking of her, just at this time, and then,
when you read of that peace—that perfect
peace--I thought, how could we feel the
full lime of that blessed verse, unless we
forgive poor Martha."
"Wife" lie raised his head, shook it as
if he would dash the waves of his anguish
back upon his heart again, and gasped,
rather than spoke the words, "Wife, wife,

-She won't etanit. said the man in a
smothered ioice.
-The woman crossed her hands -The
hall of yarn had fallen unheeded and rolled
to' the opposite side of the room, so had
the tears dried upon her cheeks, but the
shade of motherly sadness and tenderness
lingered upon her features. She spoke in
tremulous tones.
"I have been to-day where I have often
been since I gave my heart toGod. I could
not help it husband—l could not help it.
My mother's love has yearned over her,
and it has seemed, at times, as if my heart
would break. Don't look - so, John. I tell
you that poor sinful child has been on my
soul hour by hour, moment by moment,
until I have almost felt her head laying on
my breast Its I prayed, and I knew God
would give her back to us. Yes, I con

the place, but she was gone—gone-0 !

This I was told by a pallid creature, dying
of consumption, (Heaven help her and all
of them) sick, and sorry, and weary of life.
'She was never like one of utt,' said the wo
man, 'and it you see her again, tell her I
bless her tbr her kindness towards me.'—
Well, John, I haven't seen her yet ; I
can't see her till—till"—the lips quivered;
there was a moment of silent weeping ;
then the mother arose, quickly placed a
pen before him, and put the stand of ink
at his elbow.
"What are these for wife 1"
"Write to her, John, U write for her. I
know how you bare struggled to forget
her, but you can't : 0 no, you can't. She
MIA our first-born, my husband, the light
of our eyes, darling of our new home. I
know how she has brought the white hairs
on your temples too early ; how she has
planted shame in your path, and called up
blushes on the cheeks of the others, her
brothers and sisters ; but 0, how often her
dear head has lain in innocence over your
heart and mine; how we led her by the
hand into the very broad road to destruc
tion, and now, though we can't forget that
she has been our bane, as well as blessing;
can't expect that the world will take her
back and forget what she has been, Christ
will receive her as the dear lamb long lost,
and we may lead her to Hint, and rejoice
throughout eternity that she is saved by
our instrumentality."
-Wife, I would take her back ; but think
of the children."
State Street
"They are married, John. They have
homes of their own, and if they do not
choose to receive her there, this shall be
her shelter ; yes, these arms. But they,
too, are Christian disciples, and I have
heard them talk of poor sister Martha as
those who cared for her soul. She has
sought some other place than the house of
iniquity. I feel in my heart that she has
repented. For four Christmas days we
have tried to forget that she was ever born
unto us ; now let her come as the prodigal
son came to his father. How did he spend
his living—because she is a woman, is she
Tiler than he ? No, no, no ; we will meet
her half way. Write. John, it. will Cost you
some pride, but write ; we will send it to
morrow. Write, my husband."
A few tears fell upon the paper. What
wonder that the trembling hands essayed
almost in vain to form the words of wel
come! But the tears and the grief-touch
ed words to 4ifferent from his straight-for
ward manly writing, would not these tell
her that the heart, a.s well MI the hand,
said—Come ?"
"Peace on earth . good will to men."
Softly, reverently, John Meredith's voice
lingered over the word- I t was Christmas
day, bright, cold, but most beautiful. The
little grand children sat by their thought
ful parents. The presents were laid aside
at this hour of fansily devotion. In the
centre of the room stood a great Christmas
tree, covered with tapers, and from which.
hung still other gifts, enclosed for the even
ing's enjoyment. -
The lips of John Meredith were unsealed,
and words of wisdom flowed therefrom as
they never had before. :Never to the list
eners had the peace of God seemed so
worthy of possession ; never had the love
of Christ appeared go grand, so overwhel
ming, especially towards the poor, the mis
erable, and the lost. After prayer's Mrs.
Meredith beckoned her children, and they
followed her into the next room. There
was Mary, Ellen and George. Mary was
very young ; a sweet, blue-eyed creature.
George was manly, broad shouldered, broad
browed, like his father ; and Ellen, a mat
ronly woman and a mother.
It was evident that some unwonted agi
tation made Mrs. Meredith falter. She
was pale as she stood looking tenderly
upon them, while they, curious and mute,
waited for what she would say. She turn
ed first to George.
"My son, there was a woman of whom
we read that Jesus forgave with these
words, 'Go and sin no more.' •
The young man grew pale and half turn

Gloriously the night of Chri.ttniei set in.
It was keenly cold W?thin, there was
delicate tracery on windows reddened with
holiday fires; within, the Christma.s wreaths
hung over door„ a nd circled picture+, some
of them remembrances of lips that were
dust, and eye+ that were ashes, hut the
kindly look of the soul that animated them
now crowned with the beauty of h ea v e n.
still beamed upon the groups below. There
was the hearty voices of children, with
their exclamations of delight at the beauty
of the Christmas tree, and thanks to the
donors. The Ist m:+ t ree was all ablaze,
but strange to say, lame but the children
seemed to enjoy it after the great surprise.
The parents sat tin xions and restless. It
had been snowing once noon, and the
ground is covered, as with a garment
pure and white, so that they heard not the
approach of %heels. George had not been
home since he went sway in anger—and
altogether it was a +onihre Christnut+ night.
"Is this the house V' asked the driver.
as the handsome vehicle which had been
sent for a penitent, stopped at the door.

"0 blessed, blessed forgiveness !" she
murmured, still leaning there, the snow
whitening her garments. "But how can I

She sobbed low but passionately, never
minding the wind that blew little drifts
upon the edges of the stone steps, and
made her shiver unwittingly. With long
ing eyes she traced the yellow light reflect
ed from the windows upon the walk ; she
held her breath now and anon, to listen to
the sound of children's voice., and then
she sobbed again. She did not note the
approaching footsteps, nor any presence,

with evil for the mastery of his soul. There

pride. But that kneeling figure In the

forward and betiding, cried out in • husky
whisper. "Is it Martha?"
-0! George," saidLthe figure ; what a
voice it was. What a revelation they em
bodied—those two words of deepest re
morse and utter hopeless.
- Another pause, during which pride gave
some fierce throbs, and then his times lost
their manliness, as he said—
" Martha, come ; they all expect you."
"All! all! 0 take me up stairs ; take
me out of the way; they must hate me."
"God forbid !" said the young man, fer
vently and more tremulously ; "none of us
hate you, Martha ; come, my sister."
"Heaven blessi you for those words. 0!
you must be better, holier than others to
give such joy to a broken heart ; you do
pity me ; you do forgive me, only let me

man, solemnly, and, as he spoke, he was
conscious of a sweet rapture ‘ stealing into
his soul, filling him with, pure and Christ

her up the steps, "you will soon forget that
you were separated from us in the warm
-welcome that awaits you."
He rang the bell. A servant opened the
Tor—but other footsteps were heard.
•• Dear soul !" said the pitying domestic,
under her breath.
-Right in here!" whispered George.
They stood on the threshold, brother and
sister : she white as a lily, blinded by the
blazing light, reeling, stretching out her
hands; he holding the poor, frail frame
with one strong arm
•'t t, my child ! my Martha! my first
born !" cried:Mrs. Meredith, tottering to
ward her ; and the repentant woman lay
helpless as aft infant, sobbing on her moth

the wasted haistis ; he threw back the cling
ing veil, all wet with snow-drops, and pat
tA4l in his old, fatherly way, the still sunny
tresses that were braided beneath. As for
thosisters,they hung about her,weeping and
full of pity, full of love. As for the child
ren, they stood midway, transfixed, with
toys in their motionless hands, looking,
wondering, grieving, and understanding
nothing of it all. As for George, he stood
with head hidden, but the words—" God, I
thank thee for subduing this rebellious
heart." issuing from his parted lips.
And they made her a warm corner by
the fire, and rallied her, treating her as if

VOL. A remarkable story is told by lla
vana journal of the discovery in Lower
California of an immense Salt Lake, the
existence of which has hitherto been un
known to the civilised world. The lake
is said to be one hundred miles in length
and twenty-five in width, and besides itn
immense resources of salt, contains guano
islands, which will produce at least 200,0(t)
tons. The mouth of the river leading to
this inland lake is said to be a little North
of the 27th parallel of latitude. As to the
country round about, the writer says deer,
swine, goats and rabbits are abundant in
the country. The same birds are seen that
are found in upper California. But it is a
very sterile country, and totally unfit for
habitation; various cans have occurred of
Indians dying of hunger.
iir Gold in small quantities has been
found in Bucks county, Pa. It is oontainett
in a rein of laiid ore, near Doylestown.
