A few days before he wrote, he had buried his
eldest son, a fine, manly little fellow, d some
eight years of uge, who had never, he said ;
kuoarn a day's illitess, until that which finally
removed him hence to be here no more. His
death occurred under circumstances which were
peculiarly painful to his- parents. A younger
brother, a delicate, sickly child from its birth, the
next in age ,to hiro, had been down for nearly a.
fortnight with an epidemic fever. In conse
quence of the nature of the disease, every precau
tion had been adopted that , prudence suggested,-
to guard the other members cif the family against
it. Bui of this one, the father's eldest,- he said
he - had little to, fear, so
.rugged was he, and .so
generally healthy. ti,ll, however, he kept a
vigiient eye upon him, and especially forbade his
going into the pobls and docks near his school,
which it was his custom sometimes to visit; for
he was but 'a boy, and "boys ,will be boy - i," and
we ought more frequently to think that it is their
.to be. Of all unnatural things, a re

One evening this"-unhappy. father came home,
Wearied with a long day's hard labor and vexed
at Some little disappointment which. had,. soured
his naturally kind disposition, and 'rendered him
peculiarly susceptible to the smallest annoyance:
While he ivus sitting by the fire in thiS r unhap

and said :
"Henry has just come in, and be is a perfeet

was afraid to Come up here, when the girl teld
him you had come home."
"Tell Jane to tell him — to come here this in,

. Presently, the , po'or boy entered, half perished
with -affright and cold. - His - father glanced at
his sad plight,' reproached him bitterly with hie
disobedience, - spohe Of the punishment which 8:

his cap and jumped clear from • the - - wharf into

got Charles nut ; and they waded tip through the
mud to where'the wharf Was not so. wet and

generous nature ; which, forgetful of self, had

examinations, the subject for poetical composi

subject. When it came Milton's turn to hand
in his poem, from which not much was .expec

"The unconscious water saw its God, and blushed."
The judges looked at each other in astonish

the consequences. Truth is immutable and will
