How Goldsworthy Brothers Spent
their Christmas .Day.
It was 'Christmas Eve. The newly--
glited gas jets flung a ruddy gleam upon
the snow which carpeted the- streets of the
great city. The flakes wore falling still,
but little chance had they to whiten on the
flagstondi; - for the church towers had just
proclaimed that it was flvo o'clock. -and -itn
over-incrensing throng of IVOrliOrn wail pour
ing forth from the_dusty city oftices,.and
hurrying honieward, eager with the antici
pation of their coming holiday. Few seem
ed inclined to loiter; friendly greetings
were exchanged, but the way-farers passed
on without; lingering,to gossip, ono and all
wearing the same expression of cheery haste,
the expression which is, or should be, on
Cho face that is sot toward home. Not quite
all, however. From 'the - foot of a narrow
'staircase, in onoof the darkest_ end, gloom
iest of the city lanes, a man came forth, and
paced, with a listless trend,, towards tho
more open thoroughfare, where a handsome
carrifige was waiting him. Tho whole
equipage denoted wealth and position, and
the appearance of the owner was in strict
accordance with it. Grave, erect, dignified ;
clad in garments perhaps slightly behind
the time as to fashion, but of the finest and
most costly material ; with snow-white neck
cloth anti bhirt front, and od-fashioned up
right collar—Robert Goldsworthy looked
the very incarnation of commercial rosnec: I
tability. - Igor di.Lhis_appearaten_belie-him-;- 11
as the senior and only surviving partner
in the long-established firm of GoTdswortliy
Brothers, his credit was unimpeachable ;
and the - balance at his banker's was. almost
equal to tho whole Capital of many a flour
ishing concern. Of mature ago, but, with
still enough of youthful vigor to hold his
head erect, and to sign his name to a cheque
without ono wavering stroke in the large,
bold signature, which was good for so many
thousands - , surely Robert Goldsworthy was a
man to - bo - envied --- A - nd - yet - d — cl CFS(3* - 0 hSZT;. -
vorTstudying - tho - richmechant's face;-would-
have seen that a dark shadow rested there—
a shadow which did not yield even to the
cheering influence of Christmas associations;
nil - tlie:listless - way - in - whichT-as-ho - seatott
himself in his carriago to-night, ho said to
thO coachman home l' showed that to him
the word brought no joyhil anticipations.
Far different was Lhe * effect of the coming
holiday upon one occupant of the office which
Mr. Goldsworthy had just loft. Mr. Matthew
Kniblis,_the cashier-of the house-of Golds
worthy .13 , rothors, at presont bueily'employed
in locicingup-the books of the .11 , 9 n, by no

with a jovial determination to make it a
right down. merry one, was .reflected in
every feattfro: Even -the books, .the'eriered
books, .harited en tenderly by Mr. Knlbbs
the rest of the year, were slammed and
'bagged about to-night with a recklessness
to which they, were 'wholly Unaccustomed.
Knibbs was fn n huiry to bo hoine, and,ho
didn't care who know it: 'As soon ,as ti)
books were safely deposited in their iron .

with an effect which must have been.soon to

groat to-night. Elegant devices formed of

Hero Knibbs entered, and mada- various
purchases tending towards pudding, but in
small quantities rale° a goodly supply of
tea and sugar. Then stowing his various
parcels away \in hi's - capacious'pockets, .he
hurried on, merrily as ever; till he came to
a street corner, where an old crone, bent
nearly double with ago and infirmity, was
sweeping, or attempting to sweep, a vary
muddy crossing. The ancient dame looked
up, and her dull eye brightened as she rec
ognized Kbibbs, for ho was a steady and
constant patron.' To-night, however he
did not at once produce the accustomed cop
per, and pass on, but stopped to pnrley.
_'Well, Mrs. Brown, bow's-tra&T6:night,-
and how do we get on with the pudding to
morrow ?'
"Thank you kindly, sir,' the old woman
replied, can ' t complain ; I've takena good
ish many coppers,-and ono silver threepenny
to-day; but ai to pudding; it ain't mucli'Z'
that the, likes of us gets.'
now do youithinl you could make
A pudding if yi)u came across the materials?'
'Lot bless 'eo, sir,' the old woman replied,
don't know nothitent 'terials ; but I
reckon if I had a quarters o' flour, and a
trifle o' raisins and sugar, that me and thy
neighbor, Mrs. Duffy, 'ud make out a pud
ding somehow.'
'Well, then, at any rate you shall try.—
Hold up your -apron.' r' - •
SO . 'saying, Knibbs disencumb2red himself
of his parcels, on after another, and adding
brght florin, to buy a bit of meat and the
flour for the pudding, hurried on faster than
over, to escape the thank and blessings
which the-old -3vom . an—gratefully:-sholverod
upon him.
evwwhii — n — MTiridividual ib ho w h 6 iCl watched
the whole transsetion, tapped him on tho
shoulder. 'You go the right way to earn a
merry Christmas, Mat linibbs.'
Knibbs started, seeming as much ashamed
of his good act, as if ho had been detected
in the commission of a petty larceny. Re
covering himself however, he turned to look
at the person who addressed him, but the
familiarity of the greeting seemed to beto
ken that ho was an old acquaintance. Mat

of age: stronvlimbed, of the middle height
and with pleasant features, much tanned by
oxposura tcl_witisl and weather,-and---some--
what hidden by a profusion'of grayish beard.'
their expression was frank and open, with
a look of quiet - resolution and self-reliance
that seemed to bespeak one who had faced
the world, and was not afraid of it.
Knibbs face wore a puzzled expression, as
if seine - look or lone or the stranger touched
a chord in his memory, faintly that,
tho dim re;nembianco had—not strength to
ehapo itselfloto actual recollection. Tho
strE4ir rdsumed 'You don't ieraember

voice quiver. , •

-though ho was only a clerk in the office. Ho
was a bit of a favorite with your brother,
and he used to invite him to= his house MOM_
and then ; and perhaps that made the young

it. However, when Mr. Goldsworthy.want

lover; so Mr: Robert told her tci,_ Q uit his

John Goldsworthy's face had grown stern

how deeply ho was moved, and almost,

to be lost.
Dear Harper's Weekly.
I hasten to eve you a piece of important
Marino In telligende--in fact, from the bluish
look things have, we might call it - Ultra-
Marine. We had a heavy storm up hereon
Tuesday the 6th inst., which extended with •
groat violence throughout the•region of the
Lakes end Massachusetts, and resulted in
the total loss of the now Copper-fastened
craft My Policy. The storm had every dam- °
aging effect-on ail-the-Craft that wore caught---
out in it. Heavy blowing was obs - ervablo
from all points of the compass several days
before the, storm, and the clouds seemed to be
gathoring'on the horizon. Ontlea morning
of Tuesday the sun lose as bright as usual,
but befor,o noon it was evident up hero that
the bark Ny Policy, -Captain A. Johnson,
would hove to go under. The. pumps wore
worked. vigorously all day long, under the
supervfsion of First MatratandalL The bilge
was attempted to bo kept clear by Hoffman
and the other deck hands ; but, notwithstand-
ing their most vigorous efforts, the waves so
ovorwholoactl tlawra az to continually keep
them under water ; and before 6 o'clock that
night tlai craft went down, carrying nearly '
_the whole of her crow with her. _ There was.
no Wreck-Elretion of any thing like it by
the oldest Inhabitant.
Tho My Policy was 'very badly rigged, and
ranked 1 1, and Was copper fastened through
out. Sho was
.condemned as unseaworthy
by the Govern nien t inspector in the fore part
of last summer, and should have been laid '
up then ; but her Captain insisted upon run
