The annexed stirring old poem. says
the Home Journal, has - the ring of true
metal, and is as applicable now as when
it was written—fur the philosophy is
sonnd, and, therefdre, universal:
Who shall judge a man from manners?
Who shall kitow him by his dress?
Paupers may be fit forpricces,
Princes fit for something less.
Crumpled shirt and dirty jacket
-May beclotho 'the golden'ore
Of the deepesAhoughts,and feelings—
Satin vests could do no more.
There are springs of crystal nectar
Byer swelling out of stone ;
There are purple buds and golden
Hidden, crushed and overgrown.
God -who counts by souls, not dresses,
Loves and prospers you and me,
While he values thrqnes the highest
But as pebbles in the sea.
Man, upraised above his fellows,
Oft forgets his fellows then;
Masters—rulers—lords ' remember
That your meanest hinds are men !,
Men by labor, men by feeling,
Men by thought and men by fame;
Claiming equal rights to sunshine
in a man's ennobling name.'
There are foam-embroidered oceans,
There are little weed-clad rifle,
There are feeble inch-high saplings,
Thera are cedars on the bills; '
God, who counts by souls, not stations,
Loves and prospers you and me;
For to him all vain distinctions
Are as pebbles on the sea. •
Toiling bands alone are builders
Of a nation's wealth and fame;
T.tled laziness is pensioned,
Fed and fattened on the same
By the sweat of others' foreheads,
Living only to rejoice,
While the poor man's outraged freedom
Vainly lifteth up his voice.
Truth ana justice are eternal,
Bon) with loveliness and light; .
Secret wrongs shall never prosper
While there' is a sunny night ;
God, whose world-heard voice is singing
Boundless love to you and me, .
Sink's oppresison with its titles,
As the pebbles on the sea.
It Dltitt lRtabiltff.
Living While You do Live.
"But we need a centre-table, Henry,
and I don't think we can get along with
out one," said Mrs. Greenway to her
husband, during one of those sweet lit tle,
confabs that lighten the path of the Ben
" A centre•table is a very pretty arti
cle of furniture, my dear," replied Hen
ry, with a smile which could not be inter
preted as a favorable omen.
" It is, and we can't gat along without
one any longer."
"Suppose we try Janet ?" continued.
Greenway, with that same ambiguous
" How provoking you are! Cif course
we can get along'without it."
• -" Then that is what we will do."
" We Could get along without a dinner
table, if you are coming to that."
"But we are not cowing to that; we
are only going to do without a centre-ta
ble, which is a much easier matter."
" If you choose to do without a bed,
such a: thing is possible.. The Indians
and the Hottentcts sleep on the ground."
" But, my dear, we are neither Indians
nor Hottentots," laughed the husband.
" Then do not let us live like them."
" I haven't the least idea of doing so."
" Well, I think yuu have. You seem
disposed to ignore the comforts and lux
uries of civilized life."
" Nor at all Janet."
"I have been waiting very patiently
two or three years for the time to conic
when you could afford to improve the ap
pearance of the house. I give it up now ;
I don't think the time will ever come."
" Perhapsit will, my dear; don't de
"Itisof no use. I see you don't mean
to gratify me, in this respect," pouted
" I do, Janet; bat I cannot afford- to
do so now."
"Yes, you can, Henry. You get a
thousand dollars a year, and we do not
spend over eight hundred Besides you
told we yesterday you had over , a thou
sand dollars out at interest."
"That-is all, true."
"Then of course you can afford to buy
a new centre-tabre: • -
" If a new centre-table were all, I could
get that; but it will be only a beginning.
Yon will want your parlor completely re
Mrs. Greenway could not deny this
plain and prophetic- statement, for She
knew very well that • the centre-table was
only the entering wedge, and that she re
ally wanted 'more elaborate furniturefor
her parlor. ' • . I . •
" I amiraibamed to invite anyone into
the parlor"," continued the lady. "If pit
knew how deeply I am' mortified when we
have -company,

" Do you call it nothing,at all to be be

" I do,"Janet. i don't cane what'my
friends and neighbors have got in- their
parlors. Thatis their busfuess,not mine.
They must get what their taste dictates
and .._their,mcans permit. :We, must do
the same, without regard tO them. This
rivalry is worse than folly."
" I don't want to be behind everybody
"Never mind everybody else. Now
look into our parlor. There is a good :
perfitie carpet on the floor, six hair-cloth
stuffed•seat chairs, a sofa, a rocking-chair,
a back-case, and other articles in keeping
with them: It is• comfortable, pleasant.,
in good taste, and as good as people in
our circumstances ought to have. We
cannot afford Wilton carpets; French
chairs, and rosewood tables."
"Look at David Bennington's parlor."
" I have looked at it."
" Compare it with outs." '
" That lam not disposed to do. I dis
like this spirit of rivalry. His parlor is
elegant, and bo doubt cost him a year's
salary to furnbili it; but that is his busi
ness, not mine... Now - ,, my dear, it pain's
me, to see you so much moved by the
splendor of your neighbors -houses.' Do
you know what that feeling is ?"
" It is something dreadful of course,"
pouted the wife : •
" Is is envy; and I am sorry to see you
cheriShing such a feeling. Just consider,
my dear, that Lar house is .very comfort
ably furnished ; that we have all the com
forts and many of the luxuries of life, turd
ought to be, very grateful for the bless
ings we enjoy."
" Another homily on contentment—
pray spare me," replied Mrs. Greenway
with an expression of disgust.
" I will spare you, if the subject is dis
agreeable to you. ' -
" I think you love money—that you
like to hoard it up. Do you know what
that feelinr , isgalled ?"
"Perhaps I do.'
" It is penuriousness; and people who
indulge the propensity are sometimes call
ed misers."
"I think your conclusion is rather
strained. We live very well. I hope
you have never suffered for the want of
good food, warm clothing, or any of the
comforts of life."
- "Of course, I have not."
"By-and•by the - time will come when
I shall want to go into business, and if I
spend all I earn, I Shall not be able to do
so for the want of capital. It is best to
think.of the future."
" There is someliody at the door. It
is David/Bennington mad Ruth. They
promised to come over and spend the sire-
Ding some, day this week,'•' said Mrs.
Greenway, rising and going to the door.
The visitors were warmly welcomed
and ushered-into the comfortable parlor
which the lady had persistently -decried.
Henry Greenway was a clerk, - and lived
in one of the suburban towns adjoining
the city of Boston. He was an intelli
gent, straight-forward young man of twen
ty-seven, who had been married four years,-
and hoped some time or other to make
his. fuitune by prudence, energy, and
;Binding his own business; but as he has
already Made his mark upon the reader,
we will not enlarge upon his antecedents.
His neighbor, David Bennington, was
a young .inan, in similar circumstances
though his salary was fifteen hundred dol
lars. He was rather magnificent - in his
ideas of domestic matters, and lived in
the style of a man who has- an income of
three thousand a year. His wife was fond
of show, and dressed herself, and furnished
her house to such an extent, that her hus
band's " bills payable" would have scared
a' Prudent - man out of his "senses.. But
David was not disturbed by . trifles. 'He
had nerve enough to affix his signature
toa note, apir , repeat the operatiOn as often
as his wants or his embarrassments re
quired. •
- Mrs: Bennington was condescending to
the lord and lady of the humble mansion,
and did not even sneer at the hair-cloth
upon she was invited to be seated. But
this was not because there was no .milice
in i ber composition; it was ouly bee.ause
she had out-rivalled her neighbor in
chairs and silk dresses, and was .-compla
cent in the victory. She soon. brought
out the subject nearest to her heart, and
intimated that she had just added an ele
gant:tau-chair to - the spletiders•of her
parlor; which was done to play, upon
-Mrs. - Greenway's- weak point.
'_By some accident . : the, gentlemen
dropped, politics, and the expense of liv
ing became the tOpic of conversation.

year to live," -ob Served. Mr. -Bennington;
and he seemed to be proad of the fact.

Mrs. Greenway, hoping to, move her

of some of the conversation which had
Passed before .the arrival of the visitors.
The Parties were very intimate between
them.- , •
"I mean to live while TAO live," said
Mr. Bennington, "For my part,'l don't
intend to go -ont of the world - withOUt
having enjoyed its good things."
"I think it is best to look out Air a
rainy day," added Oreenivay. "I don't
believe in spending all you get, especially
on fine clothes and fine furniture.'
"Live while you. do dive,. Henry."

"So do I; bitt I don't like ,to see a Man

_while . he ,
did live, and now, to their :own under

they had no means to make a show, or
even to purchase the necessaries' of

David bad become so deeply involved
in debt, and- his Creditors persecuted him
to such an extent, that he was obliged 'to
give up his house and board in the city.
His extravagant habits followed him, and
in order to meet the dethands upon his
purse, he had appropriated a sum of mon
ey belonging to the firm that employed
him—not, as he declared and his friends
believed, with the intention of stealing it,
but with the belief that he should soon
be able to, restore it, He was discovered,
and had fled to avoid the cohsaquences
of his error. • His wife was penniless,

A DorOtho Roma.NcE.-,-The papers
relate, the following story: One morn
ing last week, a scene occered !on the
train from Na Yerk South, Which for a
time oreated quitc - ao excitement! among
the passengers. Among thosejon the

age. She was good-looking and attract
