The `Runaway's Return
Well, here am I, after my night's walk
once more in the village where I was
born. The sun is up now, - and - shining
brightly. Things appear the same, and
yet different. 'How is it? There was a
big tree used to stand at the 'corner;
and where is-Craver's cottage I
Three days ago I landed at Ports
mouth. It was on my birthday. For
ten long years have I been sailing about
on the sea, and wandering about on the
land. How thing's come over me 1 lam
a man now; but : for all that could sit
down and cry like a child.
It seems but as yesterday since I ran
away from:home. It was the worst day's
work that,' ever did. I got up in the
morning at sunrise, while my'father and
mothei were asleep. Many 'and many a
time I had been unkind to my dear
mother, and undutiful to my father, and
the day before he had told -me how
wrong it was. He spoke kindly, and in
sorrow, but my pride would not - bear it.
I thought I would leave home. What
is it that makes me tremble to now
My father coughed as I crept along
by his door ;. and I thought I heard my
mother speak to him _ ; so I stood 'a mo
ment with my bundle in my hand, - hold
ing mf breath. He coughed again:' A
bove seemed to hear that cough in every
quarter of the world.-
When I had unlocked the door, my
heart failed me ; for my sister had kiss
ed me over night, and told me she had
something to tell me in the morning. I
knew what it was ; she had been- knit
ting me a pair of garters, to give me on
my birthday. I turned back, opened
the door of her little room, and looked
at her; but my -tears fell on the bed
clothes,and I was afraid it would wake
her. Half blinded, I groped downstairs.
Just as 'I had gently closed the door,
the casement rattled above my head. I
looked up and there was my -mother.
She spoke to me, and when I did not,
answer, die cried out loud to me. That
cry has rung in . my ears ever silica; ay,
in myivery dreams I
As I hurried away I felt, I suppose, as
Cain felt when he had murdered his
brother. My father, my motheiand my
sister had been kind to me ; but I had
been unkind to• them, and in leaving
them thus, I felt as if I were murdering
them all. .
Had I been a robber, could not
have felt more guilty. But what do I
say that for? I was robbing 'them of
their peace. I was stealing that from
them that the whole world could not
make.up to"them, hint on I went. Oh,
that I could bring back that hour !
The hills look as' purple as they did
when I used to climb them. The.crows
are cawing among the high elm trees by
the church. I wonder whether they are
the.same rocks 1 There's a shiver-comes
over me as I:get nearer home. Horne
I feel there is no home for me.
Here is the corner of the hedge, and
the old seat ; but father is not sitting
there. There is a patch of ground that
my sister called her garden, but .she is
not walking in it. And yonder is the
bedroom window, my mother is not look•
ing out of it now. "That cry ! that cry!
I see how it is. . There are none of
them here, or . things,would not . , look as
they do: Father would not let the
weeds grow in this fashion, nor the.thateh
fall io, and my mother and my. Meter
never stuffed that straw through , the
I'll rap at the door, anyhow. How
hollow it sounds I Nobody stirs. All
is as silent as the grave. I'll peep in •at
the window. It's an empty house, that's
clear. Ten long years I How could I
expect it to be otherwise ? I can bear
hard work, and hunger and thirst ! but I
can't bear this !
The elderberry is in blossom, as it
was when I ran, away, and the woodbine
is as fresh as ever, running up to the
window that my mother opened to-call
after me. I could call after her now,
loud enough to be beard a mile, if I
thought she would hear me.
It's no use st )pping here ! I will
cross the church yard, and see if, the
clerk lives where he did ; but he
not know nit. My cheek was like the
rose when I went away; but the sun,
has made it of.another color. -How-nar
row the path is between the grass ! it

er and mother used to point
. us to the

of the world. There is no refuge beside,

PATERNAL Dovv.—The father who
plunges into business so deeply that he
has no leisure for domestic duties and
pleasures, and whose intercourse with
his children consists in a brief word of
authority, or a surly lamentation over
their intolerable expensiveness, is equal
ly to be pitied and,to be blamed. W hat
right has he to devote
. to other pursuits
the time which God has allotted to his
children Nor is it any excuse to say
that he canna support his family in
their-present style of living, without this
effort. I ask by what right can his fam
ily demand to live in a manner which
requires him to neglect his most solemn
and important duties ? it an ex
c.-Ilse to say that he wishes to leave them
a competence. Is he under. obligation
to leave them that competence which he
desires ? Is it an advantage to them to
be relieved from the necessity of labor?
Besides, is money the only desirable be•
quest which tt father can leave to his
children.? Surely, well cultivated intel
lects ; hearts sensible to dornestic affec
tion ; the love of.parents, and brethren,
and sisters ; a taste for home pleasures ;
habits of order and regularity, and in
dustry ; hatred of vice and vicious men ;
and a lively sensibility to the excellence
of virtue—are as valuable a.legicy as an
inheritance of property—simple proper
ty purchased by the loss of every habit
which could render that property a
STRANGE BRIDAL Brorry-.—A strange
story as told of -two sisters at Berlin.
About three years ago one of these
yonng,ladies was engaged to be married,
but on the bridal morning became so ill
that she could not possibly go to the
church. The bridegroom was a desir-_
able one, and was a' fish who, it seems,
had not been easily hboked. There was,
therfore, great dfteger in' delay, so in
stead of postponing the marriage the
second , sister, covering_ herself with. a
long yap, personated the first, and:clnly

When a farmer s eon leaves home to
become a clerk in some Village or city
store, orto engage in some other busi
ness, in three cases in four he takes the
first step towards his pecuniary ruin.
Occasionally, a young man thus gets in

partner or owner, and makes mile ; but
such cases are rare.
Let ns sup4ose a case. A young man
hears`of the high salaries clerks get in
New York, fiftein hundred dollars a
year in some cases, and he gets the NeW
York fever, and taking fifty 'dollars in
hie pocket, he bide his parents farewell,
and leaves home in high spirits.
When - he gets to the city, he inquires
for a boarding house ; he applies to'''sev=
oral, and finds the price of board from
six to ten dollars a weeit—the cheapest
with fare he would not be satisfied with
at home, being about six dollars. "•He'
takes board at this rate, and begins to
look for wsituation—sees advertisements
in the papers for clerks, but 'a hundred

splendid hands=and, of course, - they get
In a few weeks his money is all gene,
and he writes home for more ; and the
result generally is, that after spending
from one hundaed to two hundred dol
lars, and "seeing the elephant, he
comes home disgusted with city life, and
is willing to stick to the farm, or awaits

Bush an aspirant for money-making
has his ardor somewhat cooled when he
learns of city merchants that they pay
green hands' only about enough to board
them ; say from three hundred to five
hundred dollars for smart, active clerks;
from eighteen to twenty-five years old.
The rule is to increase salaries - from fifty
to one, hundrad dollars aryear; : till clerks
become fully acquainted with the busi
ness, when some few—the most efficient
-perhaps one in a hundred—get a sal

If however, we should turn to the
histories of most young men who' leave
good homes to obtain Situations in cities
we should find that:ninety-nine in a
