A llarnbig With Gamblers
DT RV. JORN_MCLINTOCK. D. D
In the earlie'r
° years Wf my rainiAry,
I formed a special felloWship with a
very intelligent and pious family. The
father . and mother were of the vigor
ous Scotch-Irish - stocky clear • headed
and sound hearted people. The chil
dren inherited strong health of mind
and body: and were all quick-witted
and liiely. I loved them all dearly,
and came at last to make their family
destinies, their joys - and> sorrows, my
One of the sons, Edward, was a
firm fellow of eighteen, exuberant an
life and strength, but full of - sweetness
and good humor. Young as he was,
he showed great talent for business,
and was already a trusted clerk in a
large_mercantile.house, with a liberal
sahry for those times. -
I was called out of bed one morning,
at about four o'clock, to see this., young
man. He was in great distreg, and
could hardly tell his story; but it came
out at last, and was bad enough when
it came. "I have been spending the
night at different faro tables, and have
lost about three hundred fifty dol
"Whose money was it 1„
"It belongs to my emplOyer. I must
go to the office this morning and ac
count for it. What shall I dol"
I found on questioning dim, that
he had been gambling for two'or throe
months. He had begun by learning
to play cards of a fellow clerk; play
hag at first merely for the pleasure of
it, but soon found that a "small stake
was necessary to give interest to the
game." In., short, he had gone the
road wfiffit . thousands have trod be
fore him. From "innocent card play
ing to betting at whist,, and from the
Whist-table to the faro-bank". Of-course
I was very angry with the boy. But I
was sorry, too, as I looked into that
fair . young face, now agonized with
fear and shame—sorry for him, and
still more sorry for the proud father
and, fond mother, who must soon know
of their dishonor.
But I had to brush away these emo
tions and answer the praCtical question,
"What shall I do?" It was „ plakrt
that the first thing to be done was tb
get the money back, if possible. , I
dressed rapidly, went to the house of
a legal friend, and woke him up. His
advice was soon given. "Don't try
law_with these people. Go to them
yourself, alone, and demand the mon

money from a minor?' I. decided- to

Moreover, it was not yet six o'clock in

my strange errand.

My grip of his arm was pretty firm.

Dickens's Christmas Carob
[Pri Ms Aaanlic Monthly for December,]
There is not, in all literature, a book
more 'thoroughly saturated with the
spirit. of .its subject than Dickens's
'Christmas Carol,' and,there is no book
about Christmas that jean be counted
its Beer. To follow old'Scrooge through
the ordeal of loving discipline whereby
the ghosts 'arouse his heart, is to be
_warmed in. every fibre of mind and body
with the gentle, bountiful, ardent, af
fectionate Christmas glow. - Read at.
any season of the year, this genial story
never fails to quicken the impulses of
'tender nad -- thoughtful - charity, Read
at the season of the Christmas festival,
its pure, ennobling influence is felt to
be stronger and sweeter than ever. As
you turn its Magical- pages; you hear
the midnight moaning of the' winter
wind, the soft rustle of the-falling_snow,
the rattle of the hail on naked branch
and window-pane, and the far-off tm
_mult of tempest-smitten seas; but also
there comes a vision of snug and - cosy
rooms, clue-curtained from night and
storm, wherein thelighte burn brightly,
and the sound of merry music mingles
with the sound of merrier laughter,
and all is . warmth and kindness and
happy content, and, looking on these_
. pictures, you feel the full reality of
cold and want and sorrow as contrast
ed with warmth and comfort, and re
cognize anew the sacred duty of striv
ing, by all public means, to give to
-every human being a cheerful home,
and_a,happy_ket_ j*. The sanctity of
that duty' is the na — i•Ta - af -- Oht*: as,
and of the 4' Christmas Carol.''' That
such a book should find an enduring
place in the 'affectionate admiration of
mankind is an inevitable result of the .
highest moral and-mental excellence.
Conceived in a mood of large huMan
sympathy, and expressed iu a delicate
ly fanciful yet admirably simple form
of art, it addresses alike the unlettered
and the cultivated, it touches. the hum
blest as -well as the highest-order of
mind, and satisfies. everY rational
standard of taste. So truly is this Wark
an inspiration, that the thought about
its art is always an afterthought. - So-
faithfully and entirely does it give
voice to the universal Christmas eeuti
ment, that it seems the perfect reflex
of -every reader's ideas and feelings
thereupon. There are a' few other
books of -this--kind:'in the world,—in
which Genius does, at once and forever;
what ambling Talent had always been
vainly trying to do,—and these make
up the small body of literature which

saw a small" animal standing in his
path. The doctor knew that it was a
skunk, but very imprudently hurled
the book at, him. The skunk, as Might
have been expected, opened his battery
with a rdturn of fire so well directed,
that the divine was glad to retreat.—
When he arrived. at home, his friends
could scarcely come,near him, and his
clothes were so infected . that he wp
compelled to bury them. •

It had been a sad Christmas with
the inmates of 'a: large family-house,
near the village - and of Shepperton
Range. For Christnias is not always
that festive time Which conventionality
and.advertiserdents insist upon - its be
ing; and the merriment of the season
cannot always 'be',itisured by the cele
brated "sample _hampers" or the in
digestion rising from over fe6ding.
In many ho Bea it is a sad: tear bring
anniversaiy; and :such it prem
idici-to"-be, in future, at the time - of
our story, now upwards of fifty year's
- ngo, for the domestic circle of the Wood
wards. The eldest daughter Flo - eiTe - e,-
A-beitutiful girl of twenty, was in the
last stage of confirmed consumption.
"The beauty," beyond comparison,
of every circle ,of society into which
she entered, Florence Woodward had
not- remained unconscious •of her
charms. Her disposition in early-girl- 1 .
hood was naturally reserved, and to
t ose casuallrintroduced—to-her;mold-
creased with her years, .fanned by the
constant breath - of flattery. She had
rejected several most eligible matches,
meeting the. offers
, r one or two elder
sone of,the best families in the neigh
borhood with the Coolest disdain, even
after having led each of her suitors, to
believe from the Witehery oT her man
ner, fascinating through all her pride,
that he was the favored one; and al
though at last they felt sure that their
offers would be-rejeeted, if not w.fth — a
'Meer, at least with a stare of surprise
stanch presumption, yet the number
of her * 'admirers. did not diminish; in
many instances it became a point of
vanity as well as love. The hope" of
being, at last, the Eivored one urged
them on; but always with the same re
sult. She looked upon their hearts as
toys—things to be amused with, then,
to be broken, and cared for no more:
A year or two before the periml_o.
our story she met Frank Sherborne
one evening ca a ball. The Sherbornes
had formerly lived at Halliford, within
a mile of the Woodwards, and the two
families were exceedingly intimate at
the time. 'They had now left the
neighborhood some years; and Elm
once was astonished to find the mere
boy, who used to call her by her
Christian name had grown to be a fine
young man in the interim. Whether
it was to pique some other admirer in
the room, or whether she really was
taken, for the few hours lof the ball,
with the lively intelligence and unaf
feciaconvereation of her old compan
ion, we know not, but Sherborne was
made supremely happy that evening
by finding himself dancing each time
with the belle of the room; and when
be was not dancing, sitting by her side
lost in conversation. He was &seine-
ted that night with the spells she wove
around him, and he returned - home

pulse' throbbing while the thought's'

that within were two figures, upon
whom a strange artd ghastly light ap- t )

Unwilling to disturb tho „members of • '

the nurse from the room, and asked
how long she had been dead.
"It is not a quarter of an hour, sir,"
