It was New Year's Eve The snow had been falling, thick and fast all day, in large white flakes, and now the earth was wrapped in a pure white shroud, like a maiden robed for her burial. The old church bells were chiming merrily, and happy voices were ht^ard now and then, ringing out on thc clear, frosty air. Joy and happiness reigned by nniverbal consent. Yet there were s/)me who were not happy, on tiiis the last night of the old year. In a low wooden tenement, situated in a dismal alle^', sat a woman with her child; they have no light, but the silvery moonbeams .streaming through the window, niveal to you the f)\ct;".sailfI forms Qi"...lke.D,cc,upaiits...............  Tlio woman could not have been more tlmn thirty years of age, yet the cxpri'ssit^i of her face was sad and caiv-worii. She sat before the firc-pl.'xct! ill which the reiiinants (;f a iii'e were vi.siblo, while her chiid crouched down by her sids. Ho was a lovely chilli of five stiniuier.s, altliongh his foa-ture.s vvei-e pinched with cold and hunger. .  "Matnma I'm hungry," and the little boy crept closer-to his motlier.  With a low moan of anguish, she snatchcd the child ti> her bosom, and pressod kiss after kis,s upon his little blue lip.s, tluMv rocked iiini to and fro, as if to soothe him to sleep.  "Mamma, Why don't pap;i cfiine; he wlusi»(Ted agiiin. Even white he spoke a tiluulder ran through haiiframe, and heavy unsteaily steps sounded in the entry. The door was thrown rudely open, and a man staggered into the room.

The plaintive cry of his child, went to his heart; brute that he was, and ho was sober in an instant. Tenderly he lifted his wife in hi^ ¿trms, and more than once, as he chafed her cold hands and forehead, did he press his lips to hers. When she at last recovered, he placed her on a seat and sinking on his knees before her,begged her in heart-rending tones to forgive him:  "Oh ! Edith," he pleaded, "if you will only forgive me this once, you shall never again have the same cause of suffering."  She as.sured bim that he had only to ask God's forgiveness, for hers he had already^ ^  "Can we go back to the pretty house where we used to live, papa ?" asked little Harry, forgetting his hunger in We Mciteme^^ moment. Mr,  0raham clasped his little eon to his heart,  ^'God wiiiing, my lead a  different life;" then sinkiiig on his knees with bis Wife and son pressed close to his bosom, he breathed a solemn vo w that if God would mercifully grant him «treegth to resist, ho would never again drink a drop of any kind of intox-icAting liquor^ ^ i, ^  As they-arose froco the place, the clock struck twelve, and witJi tbc be  ginning of the New Year, William Graham licgan TdrtYërêM^lfê^ was a "Happy New Year" indeed, to  f|is little family. —  « « * » * - ♦ ^  '"It ' ifEve agaiin.^ Just ten years from the night on which William Graham pledged himselfto abstain from all intoxicating drinks; and bis vow has been most religiously kept. Pollowi mo up this stree^—hero we are at the door of as magnificent, and. substantial a mansion, as there is  with me through.thls_ window blind. Isj not that a laxurions apartment ? Everywhere your eye wanders, you see all ,the luxuries that wealth and taste combined could wish œ ask for; and there, what gentleman is4hat, seated in that large easy chair? Can it be, that is William Graham ? Yes 'tis he and there seated opposite, is Edith his wife. How happy and contented she looks, and what a fond smile wreathes her lips as she glances towards thé centre table where a bright youth of fifteen sits fetvding. He is her söti, yes that is the little Harry, who ten years ago so pitifully begged for bread. He^ä now a sprightly,intelligent youth the pride of his parents, the favorite with his teachers, and looked up to as a model by all his schoolfellows.  "Harry, my son, nvhat are you doing"? asked his father.  "I am looking over my list of names, to see how many I have induced to sigh the Temperance Pledge to day, father."  "And how many have you got, Hany? it ia to be hoped that you have good success, you arc untiring in your efforts."  "Oh ! do not say so, father, you know it is a pleasure, instead of a task t0v«ne."  "I kno\^t Harry, and I would not discourage you in your noble ^^iwork. But come here tny son, there/ sit on this »tool, and let me see your list."  "Just think, fatlier," said the boy as he complied with his father's re-qiicisF, ' Just^^ (lid' ^Nlrr'WilaWrlfäs signed, lie has l>(M:'n called a confirmed drunkard for niiuiy years, I have been watching him for some time, and to day I thoiiglit I woirld ask him, so that he might commence the New Year wiih a determination to live an upright life."  "God will snrely reward you my son, but (lid it. not require all your eloquence to indu'co Wilson to sign?"  "No sir, in that I was disappointed, I saw him go into the tavern, and I followed him. He was just raising a glass to his lips as I entered. I was by his side in an instant, and gently staying his hand I said, Mr, Wilson, Please do not drink tljat. He looked at mean instant, as if ho doubted my sanity-then flung the glass with its contents upon the floor; and sitting down covered his face with his hand, and wept like an infant. It needed but a little more, persuasion to incite him to action".  '"^mlïo^'nôBTôrbôy, indeed, my' son," replied his father stroking his curly head. He must have a heart of stone, who could have resisted your pleading."  "Bi*t the best part of the story is yet to come, father. The landlord, Howard I believe his name is, was so much affected, that he made a vow, lievei- to sell any more liquor, and he  every respect, only more mature, al;  though with some signs ot, timidity, as a sense of his new pbaitioti rushed upon him, ho commenced tho^ervlce,^ and vfepi^gJ]® jlo^  a moist eye in that assembiy. He had spoken to them in an earnest affectionate and impressive manner. When he had taken his seat, an old man whoso wlnte locks looked as if thesnows of at least ninety winters, had rested upon them, arose and asked permission to say a few words. "Be  gee Rob^  Wilson, wW ten yearsjigg^ firmed drunkard. It was this man, when a boy of fifteen^ who saved me. By God's help I have been enabled to resist the temptation for ten years, and if I livo ten years longer, God' helping me, I will not touch a drop of liquor " To do justice to>^ the new minister, there were many good resolutions made .that night. Mr. Graham and his wife, sought their home, thank* ing God for such a noble and talented son.  I... — I--- ,„,'- ^^ ' • ■ I . I .-.rn-.m  The Great tiro at Olean-  We give the following full and correct account of the great fire at Olean, which we take irom the Olean Times:  to^tiLO hall. It is .pMsomeii that Mk Phelps seeking egress from the build ing by the way he entered, foiitid it  was suffocated and fell there, or re-turjoing  there was no way of escape, savo by jomping froin the third story windows, there met a like terrible fate. We regard it as scarcely possible that Mr. PhelpB could have suffered materially the pain and agony of burning, as the dense smoke driving fiercely in at all of the windows, must have, suffocatcd and, rendered him ins^sible to«pain, iangJ?efoircuih(v4re-coald4ta'g^^ft^tM^ logytm'bgitding' f 1,500; la^  TEBRIBLE CONFLAGRATIOl^.  NEARLY THE ENTIRE BUSINESS PORTION OF OLEAN IN ASHES.  A ffigUy Eespeoted Citisran Perishes m the Flames.  Total Loss abont $200,000-  About one o'clock on Tuesday morning a fire was discovered issuing from the wooden building owned by Dr. Blake, and occupied by Geo. Johns as a shoe shop, situated nearl}'- opposite the town hall. The fire as it burst forth seemed to involve alike thc building described and that adjoining, occupied by Clias. Havens' saloon, so that it was somewhat difiicult to determine in which building the fire originated, and one theory has its advocates, that the fire was the work of an incendiary and was set in the space of little rpore Uiaji-Qna.fQatJ.ntcr-v^imi--bet.ween.4hc-two buildings descHbc-d. We think the more popular opinion however is^ that^he fire originated in the shoo shop from carelessnes.s, tliough there are others who think that it originated in Havens saloon.  Whether the work of an incendiary or the result of carelessness must be left at piv.sent to speculation. Certain it is that the fire demon could not have chosen a more auspicious time for his work of devastation and destruc^dny The vveatlier was intensely cold and the wind blowing a terrific gale from the south and south-east, as if purposely ordered to drive thc flames through thc entire street. The alarm being given our Firemen and-citizens were soon assembled. the engine and hose brought out and placed in position, and at this time no thought was entertained that the fire could extend northward beyond Eaton & Schuetz store. The splendid brick block of Martin Brothers it was believed would prove a barrier, being considered fire proof. But the machine it was found was frozen up and useless,and notnntil it could be thawed out could it be of any service.

His mother now came forward, and winding her arms about his neck, gave him an afftictionato kiss, saying; "If you eontiriue-on in -tha _samo .path_. in_ whichyou have started,you will grow up to be a wise âud useful man, Harry."  "Thank you mother, may God di rect my steps and guide me in my journey through life, so that I may be all that you could wish, dear mother."  "Let us ask God'a. blessing upon that," said Mr. Graham; and all three knelt in prayer, just as the New Year was ushered in.  * * * . * » * *  Ten years more roll round, ten years of joy and sorrow, of good and. evil. 'Tis New Year's Eve again. Again the bells are chiming, ahd all are hurrying to the old stone church, for the  time. They are all assembled at last, and the old church was crowded to its uttermost limits. The man of God etitors and walks UP the aisle. Every eye is turned toward him when he takes his seat in the pulpit. But who is it? He bears a strange resemblance to.Hjrry Graham, our old acquainl-alice. Yes 'tis he, there is thé same massive forehead, the same thick _cliiiitetiiLishii8tnut curls above it, the same dark hazel eyes, except that they are a;kiflc darker, the same ..in  crossed tlie vacant lot between Havens and Baton & Schuctz and enveloped the ^tore of the latter firm. From thence leaping another vacant lot the wood building occupied by Adams & Charles standing against Mart«»-block was soon on fire, and the brick walls and tin roof of Martins building resisted admirably,"but the flames driven by the violent gusts, and coaxed by the wooden awning in front swept past  him. This sad event far more than all the iertiblei destruction of property; plunges our village into indescribable gloom.  To resume the progresa of fire, the atnall wooden buildings next north of MartiVsblock were soon ill a blaze, Mrs. Pettit's Millinery first, Mandé-villa Ineuranco Office next, Chapho & Davis liquor store, the old Meat Market,"^ and" "here~fhF'írñgine was brought in to play. A desperate effort was made ^ here to save Genthner's store, which at one time gavo hope of success but the fates seemed against us, and when that was given over to the destroyitig eleraen^^ the eiitir^row noi-th to the corner, was doomed.  By vigorous effort the conflagration was stayed tft the corner of the street leading to the Presbyterian Church, though it turned upon that street westward, destroying the dwelling of Mrs. Townsend. Nearly all of the household goods were removed. Sonthward from the point at which the fire originated, it extended to incltvding the corner occupied by Murritt's Grocery and Provision store, ahd opposite Pobes House, and thence extended westward on State stfqet, taking Youngs' Grocery and Mr. Fostej's dwelling beyond. The fe^SideOTpf Rev. A. P, Ripley next beyond was with great difticulty saved. The distance burnt over on Union (the main] street,is about 50 rods, which with the exception of three sniall vacaht lots was eiitirely covered by business places, and ftom each end of this line extending southward may be added ten rods more makintf in all 10 rods entirely burnt over. Qf business places remaining, there are only two grocery stores, Comstock's and Steiner.s. All the Hotels remain, the Post OiHce and Titne's Oflice; Miss Charles* and Mrs. Thirds' Millineries, Lenhart's Cabinet IlQOina»_.ii.nd—Eobes'—and—Georges* Bakery. These comprise at present the business place» of Olean. But with commendable energy our business men are already preparing to, rebuild, let us hope in a more substantial and se. cure, as well as ornamental manrier.  This the latest, is the most severe blow that our village has ever received. But Olean possesses business advantages that fires cannor offset, and the town is to be rebuilt and resume its thrift; we1rí®wíthoutlc delay. She has proven herself a Phoenix before andi will do so again. Dr. Whitney, vire learn has gone imme-diatley to work preparing the necessary material for putting up a creditable structure on his . corner.: J. Di Genthner while his goqds 8a;Vcd were still lying in the street bought the property of H. W. Moore near Petroleum House, which he will immediately refit into a convenient and of course good looking" store. Many must necessarily erect temporary Shanties, for immediate use, but when the Spring opens we expect to scfe creditable structures erccted upon a large portion of the burned district.
