asked of then:tan extension. If this were nit I

He awaited the hour with neryous'ansiety.-11-
When it arrived, and the few creditors called!

Ito give him hope. The first who spLke oft
plainly was Elder.
"I gentlemen," he said, firmly, "am tit
posed to all extensions. If a mart cannot 1,
as heCgoes, I think he bad better wind up.' 1,1
"If all do not agree in this matter, it will
be no use to attempt extending Mr: Carlton'
time," remarked one of .the creditors, wht I
thought and felt as did Elder, but was not wil
ling to Come out so plainly.
That is verytrue," said a third. "e,
partial eftension will be of no' use." 0
The heart of poor Carlton almost, L
. ceased I
"Have you any objection to retiring for
few minutes 7" said_N.r. Highland to the debi
" withdraw, certainly," returned Mi.
Carltoneeltd - left the room.
" My own view, gentlemen," said Mr. High
land; " is, that we ought to grant all thatis
asked. Mr. Carlton's business is good; and lie
will get over his present difficulties easily,*
we only assist him a little. We should lie
just, as man towards man ; and this I do nit
think we shall be in this vase, unless we colt
sider Carlton as well as ourselves. Ile is in
honc4 man, and an houest man in 'difficulties
is always entitled to consideration."
" That is all very well. But when a min
gives his note payable at a certain day, lie
ought to be very sure that he will be able (o
!take it up. • Creditors arc entitled to-sonde
consideration as well. as debtors. The cry
poor debtor' is soon raised, but who, I wow
der,' thinks of the poor creditor ? I, for otti,
am not prepiired to extend."
This was said by-Elder.`
" for me," spoke up another, "I never
take but one view of 'matters, like this. JO
think I will do better by renewing, I am ready
!to do so ; if by winding up the party now I. On
do better, I go for winding up. • I have co:0-
fidenet in Carltoe's integrity. I believe he
means well. But can he get through? thatias
" i believe he can," said Mr. highland.
" And I doubt it," returned Elder. . 4
" Ought we not to- consider him as well is
'ourselves ?" .urged Mr. Highland. -He lt,es
'worked very hard for the last ten years, Os
hard as any one of us, and has been as anxioits
to secure a conneterice for his family as ir e
bare been. We should feel for him al well Ats
for, ourselves. It would be but a trifle fir ps
to lose ail our claims, in comparison to the'4-
teir ruin, to him that would follow out
ate . prosecution of them. We could bear ii.o l
lose ten thousand:dollars apiece, but could
bear the loss of all he has. I hope every ri4ii
here will suffer his better feelings to beeo*te
active in - this matter. Let us think of dus
family. If that will not influence us, lets
think of our own families, and imagine thn
threatened with the same evil that now threet
en the family of Mr. Carlton. It is no 'Hitt

It is no light tfdiag to extinguish the briiirt
hearth fire, and scatter those who have gather

In the eager pursuit of wealth men's heaths
become incrusted over, and they seem to Itise
lall regard for each other's personal conditifin.
It requires, something more than usual to brit&
up the inerustatioh. The word ! of Mr. H'
land had the effect to do this with more t n
one of Canton's creditors ; even Elder did Oot
reply to what be said, but this was more ftm
shame than any other feeling. •

A man like Mi. Elder is rarely permitted to
go throtigh life without a practicable conviction
that he is in the hand of We' who governs all
,events. It is rarely that such -a -one does not
become painfully consuiting in the end that hu
man prudence is as nothing.
The first thing that j occurred to check the'
confident spirit or' Mr. Elder, was the-loss of a
ship and cargo under circumstances that gave
the under-writers! a fad plea for not paying
the risk. He sued. and was east. The loss
was twenty-tive thousand,dollars.
A few weeks after, tiews-eame that a slitp
ment to 'the South American coast had result
ed in a loss. From that time every thing;
seemed to go wrong. His -adventures foued-al
glutted market, and his return cargoes a de
pression of prices. If lie held on to a thing-in
the hope of better rates, - prices would go down,
until, in a desperate mnod, tie would Bed ; then
they would go up steadily. The time was
when he confined himself strictly to legitimate
trade,, But a mania t 4 speculation now took
hold of hineand urged him ou to ruin. Ile
even ventured into the bewildering precincts of
the stock markets, lured by the hope 'of splen- .
did results. Here he stood upon ground that
soon erninbled beneath! -his feet.. A loss of
twenty or thirty thousand dollars cured him of
his folly?, and he turned with a sigh to his
counting room, to digest, with care and prudent
forethought, some sate operation in Lis regular

for all . bis - heaarayments. For some time he

After; a sleepless night the merchant started
one motining for his store, oppressed with the
sad conViction that before the day closed his
fair fame would be tarnished. As ho walked 1
along Broadway Mr. Carlton chine to his side
with a 4heerful salutation. Mr. C. was now a
large creditor instead of a debtor.. On that
very day, bills in his Ifavor had matured to the
amount of five thbutand dollars ; and these
Elder could not pay.; The recollection of this
made it almost impossible for him to reply•to
the pleasant observations of his companion.
Vividly., as is it had occurred yesterday, came
up before his mind the circumstance that had
transpired a few yea* pre i. usly. lie remem
bered how eagerly !Le had sought, from the
!merest selfish inotiveS, to break down Mr. Carl

Land. how near he was to aecomplis.hing the
merchant's total overthrow. Suet recollections
!drove from his xait:l the hope that for a mo
!meut had pre.sentediitself of enlisting Mr. Call
, ton's good feelings, and securing him as a
friend in the trial through which 'ho was about .
Several times during-the walk towards Pearl
street he was on the point of, breaking the mat
ter to-Mr. C. ; 'but either his heart failed him,
or his companion ,Made some remark to which
he was compelled 0 reply. At length they
separaied without any allusion by Mr. Elder
to the subject, on . lribich he was so desirous of
speaking. He had not the courage to utter a
But this was only postponing. for a very
brief period, the evil day. Several remittances
were anxiously looked for that morning. He
broke the sealin , letter after letter, with
tremb;ing anxiety Alas ! the mail brought
him no aid. • His list hope was gone. Noth

bravely to the threatening storm • and bear up

calmly resolve on What course to take.. Then!
it seemed to him best to give notice of his con-1

Various dates from six to twelve months, and
endorsed them payable to Carlton, who intim

lars and left the store.
A clerk was instantly despatched to ; the bank,
and then Mr. Elder sunk into a chair, halt Btu
pified. Re could hardly believe his senses un
til the cancelled notes were placed in his bands.
Rebuked and humble in spirit, the anxious
merchant retired from his counting room and
„cought his home. Ills heart felt lighter time

;His paymehts were lighter, but his means were,
for the first time exhausted. ' The best he
could do would be to borrow; but he already
Oved heavily for borrowed money, and was ru.t

thought of Mr. Garton: but, every, feeling of

cannot ask it," he murmured as hepursued his
way towards his stOre. The f i rst thing that
met his eye on entering his counting room, was
a pile of-ship letter. There had been an ar
rival from alparaiso. He broke, the seal of
the tirst one he took .up, with 'eagerness.—

and contained drafts for fifteen thousand dol

Elder had just finished re.adlng the letter,
when Mr.;Carkon came in. ISeizing the kind

It is a well known fact, that the human body,
will trout want ,of exercise, and an: excess of
comfort, fall into an iinheldthy and ill-condo
trolled state ; and it is just - the,same w.th some
minds, which if never won ied or vexed by any-,
thing either at home or abroad, become dis'•
contented and peeviih—and such was the case
with the mind of Fell Flinders' Having such'
a gentle, non-resistance principled s wife, a first
_rate income, a leautifully furnished house, and
nothing under the sun to annoy Lim, he becaine
disgusted with the even tenor of his existence.
If he could only have got Dolly to contradict
him once- a day right positivelyven that
would have been some comfort. If, when be:
spit tobacco juice upon the grate, she 'would
only have blown him up rightl well, like moss
other wives would have done, instead of Ant!
ing for the servant to come and wipe it off; or
if, when he came home hungry to his dinner,
and fiud i hig it 'not quite ready; eommenced
scolding about it, if, then she would 04 have
:said something in return, he would have felt
satisfied. But no w instead of standing to par
; ley..words, off she Would dart to the kitchen,
I anai" hurry up" the. dinner , in: a tanner truly
surprising; and . compel Felix, in spite of his
determined sour looks, i '.indually to, relax into
a snide of approval. And it ," just took her,
too, j' as the saying is, to get dinner ; or at least
to anperintend the getting of one,--for she com
prised in - herself the ben edition-of a cookery'
book ever yet published ; and -Box may say
'what ihe pleases about the cookery of Ruth
Pinch, and her miracles of beef-steak puddings,
i but had he ever eaten one of Dolly's make, we
think his opinion would be considerably oboe-
Iled• e ,1.
Felix had tried almost. every means he could
think of; just to provoke his little wife for once . ;
1 but be had never as yet succeeded. At last,.
what he thought was ivery exceedingly happi
idea, entered his miad, which idea was very
much strengthened by the fullowhig conversa
tion, that took place the same day. ,i
He was sitting in the little counting house,
back of the ware-room, towards the close, of: he
afternoon, meditating pleasantly upon . a good
sale lie had just completed when , through the
glass of the door he beheld the light at one.end
of along cigar, at the other. the features if the
