PARSON SURELY'S EXPERIMENT
The small parish at Fallowdale had been for
time without a pastor. The members
nearly all farmers, and they had not
much money to bestow upon a clergyman; yet
they were willing to pay for anything that
could promise thein any duo return of good.
In course of time, It happened that the Rev.
Abraham Surely visited Fallowdale, and as a
Sabbath passed during his sojourn, he held a
meeting in the small church. The people were
pltased, and some of them proposed inviting
him to remain with them, and tako charge ; of .
their spiritual welfare.
Upon the merits of this proposition, there
was a long discussion. Parson Surely had
signified his willingness to take a permanent
residence at Fallowdale, but the members of
the parish could not so readily'agree to hire
• " I don't see the' use of hiring a parson,"
said Mr. Sharp, nn old farmer of the piece.—
"lie can do us no good. , If we've any money
to spare, we'd better lay it up for something
else. A parson can't earn me any thing." .v,
To this it was answered , that stated relieous
meetings would be of great benefit to the
youuger people, and also a source of real so
cial good to all.
" I don't know about that," said Sharp, after
ho had heard the arguments against him.—
Sharp was ono of the wealthiest men in the
parish, and consequently one of the most in
n',fluential: "1 have heard tell," he continued,
"of a parson that would pray 'for rain, and
have it come at any time. Now if we could
hit upon such a parson as that, I would go in
for biting him."
This opened a new idea to the unsophistica
ted minds of Pallowdole. The formers'often
Coffered from long droughts, and after arguing
awhile longer they agreed to hire Parson Sure
ly urn the condition that he would give them
rain whenever they wished for it, and, on the
other hand, that he would' also give them fair
weather when required. Deacons Smith and
Townsend were deputised to melte this ar
rangement known to the parson, and the people
remained in the church while their messengers
went upon their errand.
When the deacons returned, Mr. Surely ac—
companied them. De smiled, as he entered
the church, and with is graceful bow he saluted
the people therb assembled.
"Well my friends," said ho, as ho ascended
the platform in front of the desk. I have
heard your request to tne, and. strange ns it
may appear, I have come to no . ept your pro
posal; but I can do it only on one condition:
and that is that your request for n change of
wcathei. must be unanimous."
This appeared very reasonable, since every
pember of the parish hail been interested in
the farming business, and ere lonit was ar
ranged that Mr. Study should become the
pastor' of Fallowdalc, and that ho should give
the people rain whenever they asked for it.
When Mr. Surely returned to his lodgings,
his wife was utterly astonished upon learning
the nature of the contract her husband had
entered into, but the pastor only smiled, and
'bade her wait for the result.
" But you know you cannot make it rain,"
persisted Mrs. Surely; "and you know, too;
that the farmers hero will be wanting rnin . very
often when there is none for tkom.. You will
be disgraced. •
" I will learn them a, lesson," quietlT,Tc
tnined the pastor. •
"Ayi that yop cOunot bo 'as good as you
word ; and when you have learned it to 'thorn,.
they will turn you off!"
'ol'o shall.see," tuns Mr. Surely's reply, as
v ho ton up a.boolc and commenced reading.
This tvasaSignal,for the wifo to desist from
fArtiter conversation on the subject; and she
at 01100 obeyed.
Than flew on, and at length 'the'hot , daYs of
midsummer werii at hand. For three weeks
it had not rained, and the young corn my b -
ginning to curl up beneath thoefforts of thO.

With this the applicants were perfectly sat
isfied, and forthwith hammed to call the flock
" Now you'll see the hour of your diagram),"
said Mrs. Surely, after the visitors had gone.
"Oh, I am very sorry you undertook to deceive
" I did not deceive them."
" Yes, you surely did.
We shall see'," responded the Pastor. ~
.. So we shall see,' added the lady. - 4 --1 ,
The hour for•the meeting came around, and
parson Surely met his people at the church.—
They were all there; most of them anxious ,
and the remainder curious. s•
" Now, my friends," said the pastor, arising
upon the platform. " I have come to hear your
request. What is it Y,
want rain," bluntly - spoke Farmer
Sharp, "and you know you promised 'to' give
it. to us.?? ' -
" Aye; rain! rain !. repeated half a dozen
• "Very well. Now when will you have it?"
"This very night. Let it rain all night
long;" said Sharp, to which•several others im
" No, no, mb to night !" cried Deacon
Smith, " I h rho six or seven tons of well made
hay in the field, awl I would not have it wet
"So have I hay out," added Mr. Peck,—,
'We wont have it rain to Maid."
"Then let it be to-morrow."
" It will take me ell day to-morrow to get
my hay in," said Smith.
Thus the objections came up for the two
succeeding days, and rit length, by way of
compromise, Mr. Sharp proposed that they
should have rain in just four d.,ys. " Foy,"
said be, "by that time, all the hay which is
now out can bo, , got in, and we need not any—
" Step, stop!" uttered Mrs. Sharp pulling
her Worthy husband smartly by the sleeve,
"that is the day wo have set to go. to Snow
hill. It musn't rain then!"
"This was law for Mr. Sharp, so be propo
sed that the rain should come in ono week,
and then resumed his seat. But this would
not do ; many of the people would not have it
put off so long. "..If we can't have rain before
then, we had better not have it all," said they,
In short, the meeting resulted in just no
conclusion at all, for the good people found it
utterly impossible to agree upon a time when
it should rain.
'' 7 'Until you can make up your minds on this
. point," said the pastor, :fah° was about leav
ing the church, "we must 'all trust in the
Lord." And after this the people followed him
from the place.
Both Deacon Smith and Mr. Peck got their
hay safely in, but on the very day that Mr .
Sharp and his wife were to havo started for
Snewhill it began to Vain in right good earn
est. Sharp lost his visit, but met the disap
pointment with good grace, for hie crops smi
led at the rain.
lire another month had rolled by, another
meeting was called for n petition for rain, but
this time the result was the same as before.—
Many of the people had their muckle_dig„autL
rain would prevent them; some in one, some •
wanted it in two, some in three days, while
others wanted it put off longer. So Mr. Sure
ly had not yet occasion to call fdr rain.
()no year rolled by, and up to that time We
people of i , allowdale had never been able to
agree upon the exact kind of weather the'y
would have, and the result was, that they be . -
glen to open their eyes to the fact that this
world would be a strange place; if its inbabi.
tants could govern it. While they had bee'n
longing for a power they did not possess, they
ha I not seen its absurdity, but- nowahat they
had, in good faith, tried to apply that power
under the belief that it MS theirs, they saw
clearly that they .were getting boyond• their
' sphere. They saw flat Nature's laws wort
safer in the hands of Nature's Dad than in the
hands of Nature's children.
On the last Sabbath in the first year of Mr.
Sureley's settlement at Fallowdale, he offered
to break up his connection-with the parish_
but the people would not listen to it, They
had become attached 10 him, awl to the meet
ings, and they wished him to stay.

"Nor do we wish you to," returned Sharp.

A great many years ago, when pigs were
swine, and the Evil Genii held communication
with mortals on earth, there lived in the north
of Ireland a good•natured, industriOus farmer
by the name of Guinhss. Ilisfit'i.m; consisting
of a feW acres of land, was not in the best pos
sible cot.d.tion for tillage, one porti . on being
dry and barren, another wet find Marshy, while
the whole was almost entiroli destitute of an
enclosure. Still farmer Guine.7s entered upon
his agricultural life with commendable indus
try, -not doubting that with perseverance, be
would be able to bring his farm under'a toler
able-state of cultivation. . ".
Now the neighbors of farmer - Guiness, Whb
also owned a like quantity of land, chose rather
to idle away their time at the ale-house,' than
in the laudable endeavor 'of improvin their
estates. Yet, when they saw that their neigh
bor's farm produced crops fat : lmpeller to their
own, they began to feel envious, and made
complaint to the Chief of the Evil Genii, their
'master. The Chief was well aware thatfarmer
Guinees said, prayers regularly to nil the
Saints, and was a de ..ent.worsrtipper of his old
enemy, St. Patrick, in particular,—and he
knew that unless he could mak:: the crops of
the farmer decreCse to an equality with those
of his own servants, be might lose their alle
giance. So the Chief called together the evil
genius of the woods, the evil genius of the
swamps, and the evil genius of the mountains,
and desired that some plan might be devised
by which the crops of the farmer might be
greatly decreased. Then the evil genius of
the woods proposed a scheme ipr injuring tile
former, to which the others assented, and ivent
Now, at this time there were very few fences
in Ireland, and it was customary . for . eviiry
person to protect his cattle from wild beasts,
- by shutting them into a levered. enclosure nt
night, and allowing them to run at large du
ring the:clay. Such a state of things required
that those fields devoted to cultivation should
ho constantly watched, lest the cattle, pigs,
and donkeys should run over Ulu fields and
destroy The . crops. Acoordingly frirmer Guin
ess had made a neat pathway nvouud his fields,
iu which his children were daily to be scull
walking back and forth, for the, purpose of
watching the grounds and protecting them
from the cattle and other animals that ranged
Whcn the convoUntion ofgtoji i) %C had
up, and the ovil genius of tke ode had re
ceived his commands from the Chief, ho pre=
pared immediately to execute them. Having
plucked up a large quantity of black thorns
by the roots, he carried them from the forest,
and transplanted them in the path that aut. ! .
rounded the grounds of former Guineas. By
this means he hoped it would be impossible to
protect the cultivated fields from depredations,
inasmuch as it would be exceedingly diflioult
for any one, much less children, to walk in
On the same night on which this convocation
- of - ovil - genihlnal , betna-heb , 4 - the holy St. Pat=
rick was informed of the injury that was pro
jected tigaihst thefiirmer, and ho determined
to protect his faithful servant. So ho sent a
fairy to.,,,the farmer with a beautiful ring of
very curious workmanship. And the fairy put
the ring upon the little finger of the farmer,
and informed him of its virtues. "Whenever
an evil is meditated against your estate," said
the fairy, "you have only to ,press your finger
ou this ring, and that which was intended for
a curse will become a great blessing."
When,. therefore;-on the next moriiing ; ibe
former went forth to his daily labor, and saw
the thorns in the path; he guessed that it• was
the work of an evil genius, and he hethonght
himself of the ring : Pressing the talisman on
his finger, he commenced preying St..
Patrick, let it so happen that whenever a path
of theme shall he placed around a field, it May
prove a blessing inskad of daurse."
Scarcely had ho uttered these words when
St. Patrick himself appeared before him, hold
intin ono hand a son , glas!i ; and in the other
atering-pot. And as soon as the Saint con
centrated the rays of the sun upon the thorns,
and sprinkled water upon them, they took root
and began to grow; and they increased in size
so rapidly that in a few hours they were chang
ed into me beautiful hedge. 'Then the firmer
saw, that this hedge would be of great value to
him, and that it would of itself protect his
farm from the depredations of the cattle, whik
his children' could be otherwige. employed in
cultivating the. lands. 'So that at lho end of
the year, it wile found ihat the crops of the
farmer were increased instead or'being
Now, when the Chief saw that the evil that
hal been projected against' the farmer had
proved a blessing instead of a curse, lie caiied
togethCr the genius, in olden that another pla'n
might be devised for injuring his , crops. .At
this convocation I,lie evil genius of iheswtimp ,
promised ,to take the matter in band,•where-
upon the Chief and the,other genii went their
way. , .
Then tho evil genii of tho-swamp went to
ihegrouride of furnier Guines„l, lind • dug seve
ral long tronehea across lis fields, which
mediately:becumo'filled -with Water, and. into
these trenches he put frogs, liiards,' and other
reptiles. , Moreover ho made.f large piles of
stones near those, trenches, and conveyed ser 7
pouts tiltheiri, hoping bytheso 'means to, fro,
farmer'from utdiivatiug at least one,
half his estato. •
When fanner Guineas Arose in
and saw these trenches, era thesO piles of
stones across his Sehio, li"again conjectured
that, it we's the work of on enemy. And , hay.
ing bothoughthitasSlf of hia.ring, he pressed ,
I it, upon his linger' and said';-- ,, G,'Saint Poe- ,

into the depths of the eon, and they have never
ventured to shOW themselves in the Island to

of these reptiles, known as the "Sea Serpent,"
is occasionally seen to raise his head above
the waters of the Irish coast, entreating St.

Again tho Chief :aim that his project for in.

ieffective, and he called nnotherotinvoenthin
of the , evil genii. At 'this meeting the evil
genius of tho mountains agreed to execute a
plan that could not fail greatly to injure the
crops of the farmer. So after the convocation
was ended, the evil genius , of the mountains
went to the giants of the Island, Who were his
servants, and ordered them IV tarry n vast
number of rocks from the mountains, and
place them on the grounds of the farmer, and
thus.'entirely coover a largo part of his pox•
'But when, on the following morning, the
farmer saw what had been done to his land, he
again pressed his finger upon his ring, and
said :—'o,•St. Patrick, let it 'so happen that
whenever such rocks as those shall be placed
upon such fields, it may prove a blessing in
stead of a curse.' Now the rocks were n spe
cies of gypsum, and the land was dry and bar
ren, And St. Patrick heard the farmer's
prayer, and immediately appeared with a huge
sledge-hammer and broke up the rocks so that
they crumbled like salt. And when these
rocks were dissolved, and scattered over tha
land, the barren places became productive
insomuch that at the end of the third year the
crops of farmer Guiness were the largest of all
the farmers on the Wand.
And as for the giants, who thought to do so
much 'mischief to the farmer, the Saint order
edthem to quit the country forever. So the
giants took a vast quantity of rocks and crags
from the mountains and carried them th:ce
leagues into the2sen, pnd attempted to build
fey themselves a castle,—And they thoUght
outwit the Saint by leavitik an isthmus to con
nect with the Island; on j uch they might re
turn when his 'ire should ( bo'nssunged. But
St. - Patrick, knowing their design, destroyed
a portion of their Isthmus by n storm, and the
ruins are knoxvn as the' 'Giant's Causeway' to
the present time; and the Island, in 00M1711P111-
oration of the wrath of St. Patrick, is called .
Farmer Guiness prospered, and bealtno one
of the greatest farmers in the whole Island.—
And it has so happened that since the days of
farmer Guiness, that agriculturist°, not only
in Ireland but of the whole world, have found
the following phenomena to be verified, viz:—
"A hedje of • thorns around a farm—ditches
through wet and marshy lands—and a certain
kind pf dissolved rock scattered over a barren soil
—each do prove a great blessing instead of a curse
to all farmers."
CURIOSITIES . OP SLEEP
There are some callous incidents on record
of sleeping and waking. In Turkey, if a per
son happens to fill asleep in the neighborhood
of a poppy field, and the wind blows over to
wards him, ho becomes gradually narcotised,
end would die if the country people, who aro
well acquainted with the circumstance, itid not
bring: ILim to the next well or seream, and
amply pitcherrater pitcher on his face and
body. Dr. Oppenheim, during his reSideneii in
tiiikey, owed his life to this simple and eflica•
cions treatment. Dr. Graves, from whom this
anecdote is clamed, also reports the case of a
gentlenien, thirty years of age, who from long
continued sleepiness, was reduced to a living
skeleton, unable to stand on his legs. It was
poJrtly owing to disease, but chiefly to the abuse
of mercury and opium, until at last unable to
pursue his business, he sank into abjee,,t pov
erty and woo. Dr. Reid mentions a friond'of
his who, Whadever . • anything occurred to dis
tress 'him, soon became drowsy and fell asleep.
A fellow student also, at Edifiburg, upon hear
ing suddenly the unexpected death of a near
relative, threw himself on his bed, and almost
instantaneously, amidst the glare of noon-day,
sunk. into a profound slumber. Another pees'
ion, reading aloud to one of his dearest friend.;
stretched on his death bed, fell fast asleep,
- and, with the book still in his hand, went on
reading, utterly unconscious of what ho was
uttering. A woman at Henault slept seventeen
or eighteen hours a day for fiftten years.—
Another is recorded to have slept once-for forty
days. , A man twenty-five years •,ohnge, at
Timsbury, near Bath, once sleprfOr a month,
and in two years he slept again for seventeen
days. Dr, Macnish mentions a woman, who

The Dauphin, son of the unfortunate Louis

description, his ductile and confiding spirit,
drawn out to the last gasp, silently gave up •
the ghost on the Bth of June, 1795, in his 10th
year. The famous St. Dominic never reposed
except on the floor, or the bare boards which
served him for a bed. St. Bonaventura, one
of the first Franciscans, made use of a com
mon stone of some size, instead of a pillow ;
and St Peter Of, Alcantara slept but ono hour
and a half in the twenty four hours, far forty
years together, either knbeling or standing,
with his head leaning aside, on a little piece
of wood fastened for that purpose in the wall.

People may sleep sorts of postures.
Acco"nling to Mr. Wilkinson, the ancient Egyp
, tinny, who, as everybody knows, shaved their
scalps, slept with their heads resting on an
iron Prong, like that of a pitchfork, welted
with'Sasething soft. This they did for tho
sake of keeping their heads" cool, which they
supposed strengthened their wits. The pos
tilion will sleep on horseback, and the senti

have been known to sleep on the march. It
is about three or four o'clock in the morning
.that this propensity to sleep is the most over
powering—the time seized
_upon by troops for

DEATH OR A CdiSCIENTIOUS Misun.--An old
man, named Shumm, who has lived in a hovel
in Albany, N. Y., for many years, in apparent*
ly the most abject poverty, subsisting entirely
upon the charity of the citizens, died a few
days ago. ‘PreviOus to his death ho sent for a
gentleman, to whose surprise he bequeathed
various sums of money, amounting altogether
to $3,70,0, to children and granq children re
siding at Neivark and Albany; and confiden
tially informed him whero.,his.prbporty . was
deposited. He also stated that abut twenty
five years ago., be was porter teia mercantile
house in Homburg, and having been, long in
its employ, was frequently entrusted with con
siderable sums of money for conveyance to
other establishments. In an hour of evil in
fluence ho was induced to violate his trust,
and absconded to this country with a largo sutn
of money. Having arrived, he 'invested the
greater part of ft in the purehaso of two hou-
Ses; which were consumed by fire before they
were insured. Considering this it judgment of
heaven upon him ATMs dishonesty, lie deter.
mined fiLtlevote the remainder of his life to a
severe course of industry and parsimony, with
the single object in view of making restitution
to the persons whom ho had injtired, or to their
Ile commenced a retail tobnooo store, and in
five years raised suilloient money to. accom

ho had embezzled, with a certain rate of inter.
est. The latter, however, 'was generously re
turned to him by a son of One of the partners,
and this, together with some surplus money,

THE STRASBURG CLOCir.
TUE priest and military have retired, and I
one now sitting in a chair facing the gigantic
clock ; from the bottom to the top not less than
one hundevi feet, and many strangers waiting
'to see the working of this clock when it strikes
the hour of noon. Every eye is upon the
clock. It now wants five minutes to twelve.—
'The clock has struck, and the people are gone,
except a few whom the sexton, or head man,
with n'tvand or sword, is conducting around
the building. The:oloek is stluck in.thiawaY.
The dial is some twenty, feet.from the Doer, on
each Bide of whieb is a cherub or a little boy
with a mallet, and over the dial is a small boll.'
The cherub on the loft strikes the first quar
ter, and tho one on'the right the second quar
ter. Sonic fifty feet above the dial, in a large
niche is a rude figure of time,.ti bell in his
left, a scythe in his right hand.. In front is a
figure of a young man with a mallet, who stri-
Ices the third quarter on tho boll in the hand '
of Time, and than glides with a slow step .
round behind Time ; out comes an old man,
raises his mallet, and places himself in front ,
of him i J 'As the hour of twelve comes, the old
man oleos his mallet and deliberately strikes -''
twel. o times on the bell, that echoes through
the, uilding and is heard around the region
of the church. Then the old man glides
slowly behind Father Time, and the young
man comes round again ( . Soon as the old
man has' struck twelve and disappeared, an
other set of machinery is put in motion, some
twenty feet higher still. It is thus: there is
a high cross with an image of Christ on it.
The instant twelve bas'struok, ono of the
apostles walks out from behind, and comes
out in front, facing the cross, and than walks
round to his place again. As he does so, an
other comes out in front, turns, boWs, anti
passes in; so twelve apostles, figures as
largo as life, walk round, bow, and pass on.
As the last appears, an enormas cook, perched
on the pinnacle of 'lke clock, slowly flaps his
wings three times, so loud as to be heard out,
side the church to some distance, and so natu
rally as to be mistaken for the real cock.— -
Then all is silent as death. No wonder - tiria,_
clock IA the admiration - of Eilih - po. It was
made in 1500, and has performed those me
chanical wonders over since, except about fifty
years, when it was out of repair.
THE EFFECT or• FRAUD, &o.—Wo recollect
says the Now York Mirror, when whey , of .
casually overhearing a tailor tell his book-kee
per that ho "must make the good customers
pay for the losses by the bad ones." - The in
justice of such a system of doing business made
an impression on our ' young and tender con
science, which, instead of being effaced by
time, has only been deepened by experience.
It exposes at a single flash the evils of the
credit system. All trades must live--and there
must be a balance on the profit side of the ac
count. If Mr. Jones fails to pay for his coat,
Mr. Brown must pay double price for his, or
the poor tailor must starve. steal or bog. The
same sort of economy enters into all mercan
tile transactions, and the honest industry of
the better half of the - community has to re
double its efforts to make up for the frauds
and extravagances of the other. A large por
tion of every dollar earned by every man who
'Works for a living goes to support some lazy
scoundrel, some idle vagabond, who lives like
the spider, by preying on the substance of oth
ers. And we shall hardly overstate the evil,
in asserting that ono half of the oiiillfzed
world is working day and night to support the
other half in idleness and crime.
REMARKABLE INSTANCE OF ABSTINENCE FROM -
FOOD AND Dnruk.--H. Doesbnrg, Esq..; editor
of The Hollander, a paper published' in the
Dutch language, in the Holland Colony, in Wes
' tern , lllichigai3, communicates to the Tribune
an interesting item which he culled from one
of his Netherlandish exchanges, of one.Engoltio
Van der Vlies, a female of Pijnaokor, near
Rotterdam, aged 00 years, who has not eaten
in 35 nor drank in 31 years. She is now in
her last decline. -Professors r and doctors
and numerous iloiontifio -men from - all parts - of
the world go to see her. The Board of Health,
of the Hague, instituted inquiries into the
matter as far back as 1820. No medical man
has yet ascertained'lho true condition of that
wonderful lady: She lives in good humor,
and suffers with Christian love and faith, her
lot aid conditioy This is certainly a remark
able phenomena in the history of humanity,
and is an important news item' for the whole
world es there is no instance of such long ab
'stimuli° among mankind.
