The sensitive artist would have thrown aside his pencil, if the subject had been presented to his view as we have described it, and his heart would have reeeived an impression wh'ich could not have been transferred to the canvas. " Tu morrow," observed Mr Sunderland, "is the anniversary of the melauehly death of our dear liens); to•morrow will be ten years ranee tile vessel iu which he sailed was lost, a nd all ou board perished—all, all !" " ,xclaiweit bas wife, 4.3 War, c. urs ed their wad doyen her elieels, "to m o rrow will be ; welauetioly day " Indeed it will; for to-worrow this house, which belonged to wy the furniture, which time has made, as it were, a part of our , selves, stud associated with Litany a pleasing event in our lives, is to be sold; torn from u by the mildewing hands of creditors; but, thank Providence, misfortune, not crime, has reduced us to thin stage of poverty " " Will q iey sell everything, pa; can we secure nothing?" 'asked the daughter " No' my child, unless with what little money a friend has generously loaned me, I can secure a few articles Ellen, my dear, take your pencil and put them down: first; the sideboard, two beds, sofa, chairs, and kitchen things. The side board, it is true, will be to us now a superfluous piece of furniture, but it belonged to my mother, and I cannot, will not part part with it !" " But my piano, pa! must go!" The wife sighed, the father east his eyes to ward the flickering fire, and the (laughter was silent. The fate of the piano was decided upon A melancholy pause in the conversation plainly teld how severe was the alternative; for the law never studies the feelings of its victims when exacting the penalty of a bond. Go, Mary," said Mr. Sunderland, eddies *tug the servant, "go and request the Sheriff's officer, who is watching the property, to walk into the parlor; he is only doing his duty. No donkt it is painful to him, as it is distressing- to us. Let him have a seat at our fire, and a glass of wine, for it is a severe night " " It is indeed a fearful night," observed Mrs Sunderland, "and we have behaved rude to ibis maw." " Mother, I made a fire in the room where he a, but"— " Speak out, child—it was with the las stick." "Father, it wan"— _ Mary returned with the officer, a polite, gentle manly man; for nigh should be the eharaetir o men who have to Perform part in the drama o life, not unlike that of the inquisitors of old, whose provinoe it was to torture by the rack, with this difference, however: theirs was& physi cal torture; ours a mental one, administered with all _ the nicety and precisioti of /Ertl justice! The Ater politely accepted the invitation, tast ed the wine, and endeavored to cheer bis victims by enumerating many cues of a similar tied, equally poignant and dietressieg. Thus the evening passed heavily and cheerlessly away. On the morn - itg- of the contemplated sale, there was to be seen a crowd of people biking to the house of Mr. Sunderland. Some out of sheer, heartless curiosity, friends of the (tinily, who came with mockery o 9 their lips—and empty purses Others with an intent to purchase; but no one in the crowd showed the least desire to aid, assist, or sympathise with the distress of the family This talkie world; we laugh at the imis fortunes of our fellow creatures, and even quo& their distresses, by witnessing in alien°e their sufferings. The auctioneer was now Making his arrangemente, by flourishing his hammer, roiling his eyes, and using his tongue. • The motley crowd gathered around him. The house put up first; it was accurately described; free from ell ineumbranose, and subject to but a very email ground rent. It was started as live thousand dollars. There were mesuril bidders, ill of whom seemed anzionelo purchase it. Eleven thousand fire hundred dollars wee the lag bid, arm which the auctioneer dwelt fur a moitina.

We have not seen the bill, but its grand effect is to make money a commodity—to be bought Anil sold like any othii commodity lo thia respect At is an emaneipaalun aet. It eman eipstes both lender and borrower from disabilities prejudicial to each It subjects money to the great laws of demand and supply. Itoubtles the bill contains some restri,tions which experience Las show to be wise, but in removing the severe interdictions which have operated upon capitalists, it will have broken down the monopoly of money letting and made extortion disgraceful.

Our reporter, who was iu Poughkeepsie at the time, succeeded iu learn. ing the follawing facts: The family consists of Mr. Voile, his niece, Mrs. Smith, the housekeiper, and her daughter, a girl of about sixteen years of ago. Mrs Smith's husband is in California, and some time Al Deo! he sent her two or three hundred dollars. This money was stolen from the house. of Mr. Velie, Ott Saturday last, the Niece was is Poughkeepsie, and purchased a quamity olgoods, which were labelled as if coming by express from Now York, but upon being asked where she got 11.111 etatet that her cousin had given her them.

There is a gray haired gentleman in Now York, a retired tuetehaut, whose bland sod hearty ouuuteuasee may he seem every fair day, in Broadway, through the window of his carriage, as be takes his airing. There is nothing cases• taboos about lus equipage--none of that labored display, unfortunately characteristic of too many in New York. He doss not ape the manners of a foreign aristocracy, by attiring his servants in liveries ; and his carriage, though evidently of costly manufacture, ie so barren of tinsel, and of so unpretending a construction, that the parser by, as his eye falls in the midst of the ambitious "turn outs," so numerous in Broadway, would ever suspect its occupier to be the possessor of unbounded wealth—capable 8f buying ., up, .body and soul, nine hundred and ninety( n ice of the bediuened and bewbiskered aspirants who dash by him, as be leisurely rumbles along, in their flashy, gingerbread vehicles. He is often aeoottpanied by his wife and daughter, the former preserving, in the wane of BA, traces of lovelies*, ; the latter in the damm ing of lustrous beauty. The dress of those ladies corresponds with the elegant simplioity--that test of true elevation and real gentility—wbieh we have remarked upon as distinguishing the husband sod father. The jewels they wear are few and tasteful; and, in their Olds and becom• lag attire, they do not. make their bodies low. motive milliner's signs, nor tell a tale by extrav agance of outlaws) of display, the conscious de ficiency io mental superiority that would make a parade of the covering alone, for the emptiness within it. This gentleman same to the city when a youtig man, a poor adventurer. Re left his father's humble _fireside in the country, with a blessing and a pack of clothes, and with a five dollar note in his pocket—all that be was worth in the world—he turned his steps toward New York ; ignorant of mankind, of the thousand seeking, like him ~ p ie eiripoot—ont TUU or ex71122a--m 21 -1,1- 11 fir f t woe illamnt several days travel, but he did not greatly dimin. ish his scanty fonds, for the farmer's door, at which be applied at nightfall, was ever open to reeeive him ; and a few boon of labor the sue- ceeding day requitted—for he would have scorn ed to have accepted of charity—the hospitality extended to hint. Re sought a mean, cheap longing house, when at Ihet he trod with eager foot the streets of the city ; and, aillhough won daring curiosity was awake, he lost no time, in idleness, but employed himself seeking occupa tion. Appearances are deceitful, and it is dan germs to pet faith in them, bikt, the -merchant listened co Jacob Flagg's story, and, taking the honesty ilepiisMd in his facie u an endoraemeat of its truth, made him his porter, and over bad reason to regret it. For four years he was a faithful servant, diili gent, industrious, honest, frugal. Closing his duties soon after nightfall, his evenings were his own ; and, by the light of his lamp, he devoted them to the improvement of his mind. At the end of four years, with what he had saved from his earnings, and some little assistance from his ewplbyer, be opened a small shop in an obscure street, wherein he vended a small sick of dry goods. From the beginning he succeeded ; and the majority may succeed in precisely the same way Whatsoever one's income may be, how ever trifling, let Aim lire within it, and he is even then prospering ; and, to prover in a great city, frugality never ands itself at fault. Sub sis!enee and a home may he procured, pillaging to any quality of means ; and he who casts pride out of doors, and indulges rather in that more 'ennobling satisfaction, the conscionsnese that be is wronging no fellow being by unjust self indul. genre, is laying a foundation ror prosperity, that nothing can shake; though the goods of earth may gather slowly, the soul will be heaping up treasures. Extravagance is a comparative term, out be who, with an ineoine of a few bunareds, exceeds its bounds in his expenditures, is more reprehensible than the possessor of millions, whose lavish nand scatters thousands upon thou% sands from his revenue. JsoohFlags had a tit tle something left of the first year's pin t and a yet larger sum at the close of the seoutid—teu. fold after the third. ' As his condition improved, he cautiously and advisedly improved his mode of living. He re moved to a more genteel boarding house—and then a better still—very careful, however, not to deceive himself, and run ahead of daty.
