George, here is the money I bor- rowed of you some time ago, I take sbame on myself to have kept ton out of it ao long after tbe time I luid fixed for tho re- payment somehow or other my tarings would slip through my fingera.' 'I could have wished foryofp own sake you could have been more punctual; but apology is unnecessary, us the delay has occasioned me no inconvenience.' 1 You are very good naturcd.' 'I iun afraid not; for if I had wanted the money, I should not hare scrupled to ntik far it at the promised time.' This conversation between two clerks in a mercantile house; they were both of the same age, neither was there much difference in their capacity; but Ed- ward, having been in the counting house several yejira, was now in the vecuipt, of a salary of one thousand a year. George, as his junior in point of time, received only six hundred. After the last remark of George, Ed- wurd remained silent. It was now past the usual hour of clewing the counting bouse., and George wot preparing to go.

Mercury is the nearest ntauct to tlie Sun, hat has yet been discovered, although a space f no less than thirty-seven millions of miles ntcrvencj between it and tbe central lumina- y. It is the opinion of some astronomers, mt it is highly probnb'.e there may bo a plan- t between Mercury and the sun, which has ever been seen, in consequence of the intcn- ity of solar light. Owing to Mercury's prex- mity to tlie sun, it is seldom seen by a eom- non observer, and can only be seen by the inassislcd eye for a few nt the period of Is greatest elongation, or distance from the un. The length fll Iti year is only S3 and J3 j ils surface contains more than of wjuarc miles, and its solid contents re Its density is greater than any "of tbe other planets, being wice the density of tho times hat of about equal to that of cad. The rapidity of its motion ia astonish- ng. It ll'iei in its orbit every nrlc's every more ban miles during every beat of the pulse! swiuently, when a person would be read- ng this article, it would pasi over a space greater than that whieh lies lictwecn X York and Liverpool. It would require two lion of glolics, such as Mercury, lo make oncHslnrge nt the sun, and were ils centrifu- gal force suspended, it would fall to the sun in 15 days and 15 hmirj.
