August 121,
The golden rays of a.suinmer afternoon were
streaming through the wlndons of a quiet apart
ment where every thing was the picture of order
ly icpose. .Gentle and noiselessly it glides,
the glossy old chairs, polished by years of care;
fluttering with flickering gleam on the boob cases,
by the fire and the Antique China vases on the
mantel, and even eoqueting with sparkles of ibuci
ful gaiety aver the titre of the perpendicular sem
•bre old clock, which though at times apparently
coaxed almost to the verge of a smile, still continu
ed its inevitable tick as for a century before.
On the hearth rag lay outstretched a great lazy
looking Maltese cat evidently enjoying the golden
beam that fell upon his sober aides and sleepily
opening and Aiming his greet green eyes as if lost
in luxurious contemplation.
But the, most characteristic figure in the whole
picture, was that of an aged women, who sat qui
etly rocking to and fro, in g great chair by the
side of a large round table covered with books.—
There was a quiet beauty in that placid thee—that
silvery hair brushed neatly snider the snowy border
of the cap. Every line in that furrowed fime,,told
some tale of sorrow, long assuaged and passions
hushed to rest; as on the (Win ocean shore the
golden furrowed sends show traces of storms and
fluctuations long past.
Ou the round green covered , table besides her
lay the quiet companion of her age, the large bible
whose pages like the gates of the celestial city,
were not shut all day; a few old standard books,
and the pleasant rippling, knitting, whose dreamy
irresponsible monotony is the best music of age.
A tier girlish form was seated by the table—the
dress bonnet had fallen back ou her shoulders,. the
soft checks were suffused end earnest,_ the long
lashes and the veiled eyes were eloquent of subdued
feeling as she read aloud from the letter in her
band. It was front 'our harry'—a name to both
of them comprising all that was dear and valued on
earth, for he was 'the only son dills mother, and
she was a widow'—yet has he not been always an
only one; flower after flower on the tree of her life
had bloomed and died, and gradually as waters cut
off from many channels, the streams of love had
centered deeper in this last and only one. •
And in truth Barry Sergeant Was allthat a mo
ther might deSire or be proud of. Generous, high
winded, witty and talented, and with a strong and
noble phygical development, he seemed born to
command the love of women. The only 'trouble
with him sus in common parlance that he was too
clever a fellow—he was too social; too impressible
too versatile, too attractive, and too much in de
mand for his own good. Ile always drew compa
ny about him a's honey draws flies, and was indis-:
pensable every where, and to every body, and it
needs a steady head and flint nerves for such an
one to escape ruin. •
I Larry's course in college, tho' brilliant in schol
arship had been critical and perilous., I - Ia was a
decided favorite with the faculty and students, it
yet required a great deal of hard winking and adroit
management on the part of his instructors to bring
him through without any infringtuent of college
laws, and proprieties, not .that he ever meant the
least harm in his life, but that some extra gener
ous impulse, some Quixotic generosity was alWays
tumbling him neck and heels into somebody's
scraps, and making hint part and parcel in every
piece of mischief that was going'on.
With all this premised, there is' no need to say
that Hurry was a special favorite with the ladies ;
in truth, it was a confessed fact aunong his acquaint
tutees, that whereas dozens of creditable, respee
table, well to do young men, might besiege female
hearts wills every proper formality, waiting at the
gates, and watching at the posts of the doors in vain
yet before' hint all gates and passages' seemed to
fly open of their own accord; nevertheless, there
was in his native village one quiet maiden, who
only held in her hand the key that could unlock
Iris heart in return, and carried silently in her heart
the spell that could fetter that brilliant restless
spirit; tutd she it wasof the thoughtful brow and
down-east eyes whom we saw in our picture ben
ding over the letter with his mother.
That mother IlinTy loved to idolatry. Site was
to his mind an impersonation of till that was love
ly, in womanhood, hallowed and sainted by age,
by wisdom, by sorrow, and his love for her was a
beautiful union of protective tenderness, with Veil
' oration ' and to his Ellen it seemed the Lest and
most sacred evidence of the nobleness of his na
tore, and of the worth of the heart which he had
pledged to her.
Nevertheless, there was a danger overhanging
the heads of three; a little cloud, no bigger than
a man's hand rising in the horizon of their hopes,
yet destined to burst upon them dark and dreadful
in a future day.
In those scenes of college hilarity where Harry
had been so indispensable, the bright poetic wine
cup had freely circulated, and often amid the flush
of conversation and the genial excitement ofthe
hour, he had drank freer anddeeper than was best.
Ho said, it is true, that he cured nothing for It,
that it was nothing to him, that it never affected
him, and all those things that young men always
say, when the cup of Circe is beginning its work
with them. .Friends were annoyed, became anx
ious, remonstrated,' but he laughed at their fears,
• and insisted on knowinghimeelf best. At lastwith
• n sudden start and shiver of his moral nature, he
'was awoke to a dreadful perception of his danger,
and resolved on decided and determinate resistance.
During this period Ito came to Cincinnati to estab-
Halt himself in Mediums, and as at this time the
temperance veformation was in full tide of SUCCC.
there, he found everything to strengthen his reso
lution temperance meetings and speeclic, were
all the mode—young men of the first.
its patrons and supporters; wine was quite
vocative and seemed really in danger of being vo
ted out of society. In such a turn of affairs, to
seize a temperance pledge and keep it became an
easy thing.; temptation was scarce presented or
felt, he was offered the glass in no social circle, tact
its attraction nowhere, and flattered himself that he
had escaped so great a danger so easily and so
His usual fortune of social popularity followed
him and his visiting circle became full as large
and impertant as a young man with any thing else
to do need desire. He was diligent in his appli
cation to business, began to he mentionedwith np,-
probation I,y the magnates as a rising young man,
and had prospects daily nearing of competence and
home, and all that man desires; visions alas, nev
er to be realized.
For after a while, the tide that had risen' so high
began imperceptibly, to decline. Men that lied
made eloquent speeches on temperance had now
other things to look to; 'fastidious persons thought
that matters had been carried too far, and ladies
declared that it was old and threadbare, and getting
to be cant and stuff, and the ever ready wine cop
was gliding back into Many a circle, as if on sober
second thoughts, the community was convinced
that it was a friend:unjustly belied.
There is no point' in the history of reform, either
in communities or individuals so dangerous us that
where danger seems entirely past. As long as
man thinks his health failing, he watches, he diets,
and will undergo the most heroic self denial; but
let him once set himself down . as cured, and how
readily does lie fall hack 'to one soft indulgent loth-'
it after another, all tending torah' everything that
he has before done.
So in communities; let intemperance rage and
young men go to ruin by dozens, and the very evil
inspires the remedy; but when the trumpet has
been sounded and the battle set in array, and the
victory only said and sung in speeches and news
paper paragraphs, and temperance odes and pro
cessions, then conies the return wave ; people cry
enough, the community vastly satisfied, lay down
to sleep, on its laurels, and then collies the boupof,
But let not the man, who has once been swept
down the stream ofiotemperate excitement almost
to the verge of ruin, dream of any point of secu
rity forilim. Be is like one who has awakened in
the rapids of Niagara, and with straining oar aml
mild prayers to heaven, forced his boat upward into
smoother water, where the draft of the consent
seems to cease and the banks smile mid all looks
beautiful, and weary from rowing, lays by his oar
to rest and dream; he knows not that under that
smooth water still glides a current, that while he
dreams, is imperceptibly but surely hurrying bins
back whence there is no return.
Harry WaS just in this perilous point ;.he view
ed danger as long past, his self-confidence was ful
ly restored, and in his security, he began to neg
lect those lighter out-works of caution which he
must still guard who dues not mean, at last to sur
render the citadel.
PART 11.
'Now girls and boys,' said Mrs. G. to her Boris
and danghters, who were sitting round a centre ta
ble covered with notes of invitations, all the on
ihninarret dotalra of a party—'whut shall we have
on . Friday night—tea--colli,—lenamade—wine
of course not.'
'And why not wine, - mamma 7 said the young la
dies.--`the people are beginning to have
bud wine at Mrs. A's. and Mrs. (Ps.'
'Well your papa thinks it won't de..—the boys
are members of the temperance.society, and I don't

There are ninny good sort of people by the by .
who always few moral questions in this'Atyle of
phraseology—not what is right, but what will 'do.
The girls made an appropriate reply to this view
of the subject by showing that Mrs. A. and Mts.
B. had done the thing and nobody seemed to make
any talk.
'The boys,' who thus far in the conversation hail
been thoughtfully nipping their boots with their.
canes, now interposed and said that they Would
rather not hate wine if it wouldn't look shabby.
'But it will look shabby,' said Wes 'Fanny.
'Lemons you know are scarce to lie got for any
price, and as for lemonade made of Ow, it's pos
itively vulgar and detestable. It tastes just like
cream of tartar and spirits of turpentine.'
'For my part, said Emma, never did see the
harm of wine, even when people were making the
most fuss about it—to he sure rum and brandy and
all that are bad, but wine—'
'And so convenient to get,' said Fanny, and no
decent you 4 min ever gets drunk at parties, so
it can't do any harm ; besides one must have some
thing, and as I said it will look shabby not to have
Now there is no imputation that young men are
so much afraid of, especially, tYom the lips of la
dies, as that of shabbiness, and as it happened in
this case as most others that the young ladies were
the most efficient talkers, the question. was finally
carried on their side.

and Harry had loved and revered her with some
thing of the same sentiment that he cherished to
wards his mother.
It was the most brilliant party of the season.
Everything was got up in faultless taste, end
Mrs. G. was in the very spirit of it. The girls were
looking beautifully, the rooms were splendid, there
was enough and not too much of light,.and warmth,
and every hotly was' doing their best to please and
be cheerful.' Harry was more brilliant titan anal,
and in fact outdid himself; wit and mind wore the
spirit of the boor.
'Just taste this tokey,' said one of the sisters to
him, 'it has just been seat us from Europe, and
is said to be a genuine article.' •
'You know not in that line,' said Harry
laughing and rolbring.
'Why not ?' said another young lady, taking a
