Up and through tho long shady lane,
Where the quails whistle -laud in the whCat-fielda
That are yellow withthe ripening gfain.
They find in-thwthick, waving grakes,
Where the scarlet-lipped strawbOrry grows,
They gather the

And the-lint crimson blood of the rose.
They toss the new hay in the tricaow,
They gather the Oder-broom uldte;
They find where the ducky grape !purple

They know where the apples han , ripest,
And.are' sweeter than Italy wine's;
They know where the fruit hangs the thickest;
On the long, thorny, blackberry vines.
They gather the delicate seawceds,
And build tiny castles in the sand;
They pick up, thebeautiful‘sea shells— • • ..<

They wave from the tall, rocking tree-tops
'Where the oriole's hammock nest swings,
At night limo aro folded in slumber
By a song that a fond mother sings.

The humble and poor beceme,great;

An' elderly man, shattbily attired, was
seen walkin ,, through one of the lash
iunable in a large city one cold
Deermber day. Ills coat was of coarse
grey, and had evidently seen hard ser
though still perfectly whole and
neat. The traveler walked slowly
along as I have said, examining care
fully as he passed the nanteson the door
plates. , 1-le finally paused before a
dwelling of Nhowy exterior, which, if
we may credit the .testimony of the
plate upon the door, was occupied by
Alexander Beaumont.

wo4l't get it if I can help it; but I sup

The lady descended, fully prepared
to give the visitor a frigid reception. •
' I'm not mistaken,' said the old man
with feeling, 'it's Alexander's wife.'
You are right, sir. I tun the wife of
Mr. Alexander Beaumont, and f sup

' His uncle Harry. Ah Inc ! I have

me good to return to my kindred.'
-The old man leaned upon' his staff,
and his features worked convulsively
as thoughts of the past came over his
mind. Mrs. Beaumont stood holding
the door as if waiting for him to, de
part. She did riot give him any inl
tation to enter.
' Is your husband well?' enquired the
visitor, looking as if he expected 'an in
vitation to enter and refresh himself
after his walk by an interval of rest.
' If you have any message for him
you may kayo it with ine, and f will
deliver it,' said Mrs. Beaumont, de
sirous of riding herself of the intru

We will tale the liberty of introduc

Mrs. Lowe and her three children were
even now sbatcd. A plain serviceable
carpet covered the floor, and the re
mainder of the, furniture, though of a
kind Which , would hardly seleCted

satisfied the desire of those who derived

of five, with a smiling face which could
not help looking roguish, was stroking
the cat the' 'Wrong. way, much to the

Emma immediately obeyed her moth

Henry' eaumOnt—for it' was he.
Yes, sir,' said Emma ; ' please walk
in, and you may see her.' •
She, ushered the old man into the

A few weeks since, In the course of
conversation with an eminent broker,,
who has been forty years acquainted
with the leading moneyed men of tha
country, we asked if he ever knew a
schemer, 'who acquired money or po
sition by fraud, to continue successful
through life, and leave a fortune at
death. We walked together about three
minutes in 'silence, when he replied
—"Not one 1 I have seen men," ha
said, "become rich as if by magic, and
afterwards reach a high position in
public estimation, not only for honor
and enterprise, but even forpiety, when
some small circumstances, of no appa
rent importance, had led to Investiga
tiohs, which resulted in disgrace and
rum." •
On Sunday we again converged with
him upon the same subject, and he
stated that since our last interview lie
had extended his inquiries-among
large circle of acquaintances, and with
one solitary,exceptiod, and that doubt
ful,ltheir experience was to the same
effect as his own. He gave a brief out
line' of several small and big schemers,
and their tools, their rise and fall. ISa
icide, murder, arson and perjury, fie
said,. were common crimes with many
of these who made "haste to be rich,"
regardless of the means ; and, he added,
there are not ft.lei'v men who may be
seen on 'Change every day, ignorantly
striving for their destruction. It isnot,
he said, so much the love of gold that'
leads many business men astray, EtEi the
desire to be thought sharp or successful.
He concluded that fortunes acquired
without honesty generally overwhelm

The apostle of old wrote a similar can
tioulto that above, taken from a secular
paper. "But they that will, be rich fall
mil) temptation and a snare, and into
many foolish and hurtful lusts which
drown men in perdition. 'For the love
of money is the root of all evil'; which,
while some coveted after, they have
erred from the faith, and pierced them

o man of lied, nee these things." And
the wise king has left on record the
proverb, corroborated by the experience
of every generation, "he that tuaketh

toundations in truth and righteousness,
and though they may seem to advance
slowly, they will avoid thereck of moral
character, and the overwhelming ruin
that so - often overtakes the hasty aspi
rant after riches. Let them remember
the admonition of the Psalmist, as ap
plicable to business transactions, as to
spiritual training, in this present life:—
" Wherewitmil shall a young man
cleanse his way'? by taking heed there
to, according to thy, word."—Christian,
FL - I'J* NA TnusT YE.—Two centuries
ago it was thought an insult in the
Highlands of Scotland to ask a net° from
a debtor. It was-considered the same
as Saying, " I doubt your honor." If
parties nad businessimattersrto transact,
they stepped in the air, fixed their eyes
upon the heavens and each repeated his
obligation, with no i3nortal witness. A
mark was then carved on some rock or
tree near by, as remembrance of the
compact. Such a thing as a breach of
contract was rarely met with, so highly
did the people regard their honor.
When the march of improvement
brought the new mode of doing busi
ness, they were often pained by these
innovations. Au anecdote is banded
down of a farmer!who had been to tho
Lowlands and learhed worldly wisdom.
On returning, to his native parish he
had need of a Slll.llof money, and made
bold to ask a loan of a gentleman of
means, named Stewart. This was
cheerfully granted, and Mr. S.' counted
out the gold. This done, the farmer
wrote a receipt, and offered it to the
- "What is this, man ?" said Mr. Stew
art, sternly eyeing the paper.
"It is a, receipt, sir, binding ine to
give back yer gold at the right time,"
replied Sandy.
Binding ye? Well, my man, if ye
canna trust yerself I'm sure I'll na
trust ye ! Ye canna ha' my gold !" And
gathering it' up, be put- it back in his
desk and turned the key on it.
" But, sir, I might die," replied the
canny Scotchman, bringing up an argu
ment in favor or his new wisdom, "and
my sons might refuse it ye. 'But/ this
bit of paper wad compel them."
" Compel them to sustain a dead fa
ther's honor'? cried the Scot. " They'll
need no compelling to do right. If this
is the road yer leading them I'll neither
trust ye nor them. ye can gang else
where for money ! But yell' lind, 'nano
in this parish that'll put kutire faith in
a bit o' paper than in a neighbor's word
o' honor and, his fear o' God !" ,
As cool a person, under the cii•eum
stances, as ever we heard of, •was a
young nobleman, who, - in a frightful

he is cut in two."Ah, is he?' said the
young'man with a dreary draivl, but
with some anxiety depicted on- his
countenance; •will you be good enough
to see in which half he has the key, of
