Joe Bassett was a queer Genius a Uncle Joe everybody cd lulled him and though possessing but very few of the goods of this a world yet he was one of the most useful men in town. If anyone wanted an Odd Job done a he was the Man to do it. In Short he was a sort of Universal Man Friday and for a consideration to would perform any work which might to called for. To Waba Happy old fellow �1 of full of fun As an egg is full of meat and he would crack some very a Are jokes without hurting anybody. He owned a a Oyer Back of the Village to Bioh was attached a few acres of Good land and beside this lie Hod a cow and some other items of Stock. To lived quits comfortably and tho impression had gone abroad that to had Ronny Gerdto Lay up some Money. A opt. Danio a lob a who had to gently settled in the town owned a Fine piece of land. Adjoining Uncle Joe s lob and he was not Long in making himself very disagreeable to our Good Man. Friday. Iio was a proud selfish person and a Little moan withal. In Ole Joe had Somo geese and they ran upon Lebers land upon which the indignant Captain threatened to shoot them if he caught. Them there again. A Eye d make yer Fence tighter my geese git through meekly suggested poor Joe. My Fence is us tight As the Law requires a answered the Doughty Captain Ana with this he walked away. S so Uncle Joo had to go at work and tight in the Fonde and put larger yokes upon his i Lober s next move was against Joe s hens. He a wore that he would shoot them if they were not kept out of his lot. Joe built a Hen House and placed his feathered bipeds therein but it was a sore trial to him and people sympathized with him though they would not help him. One season opt. Lober slowed up his land some ten acres of it and sowed it with wheat. The Grain oame on finely and the owner used to take men out there to show them his Field. It was no knowledge to to the Best Piloo of wheat in to in. But the Captain was destined to a Piloo of ill Fortune which be had not thought of. This land was at some distance from his dwelling and when Busy at other Point a week of two might pass without his visiting it. Ono afternoon is Amo to Seo his wheat and when he reached tho Edga of the Field he stood aghast at the sight which met his gaze. The tall Stout Grain was trodden and trampled Down Over half of the lot presenting a Boone of in do a and destruction truly horrible to a and the a was at no Iosub to acc unt for tho desolation for near the Centro of tho lot to sow it was a Jaunt heavily built animal of a Dingy White color and though evidently Well stricken with years yet he of adored and frisked about with marvelous spirit now cropping a Fow of the Well filled what holds and anon trampling Way upon the devoted Grain As though to wore trending the wine i should no Dart Tito Hall the oaths which opt. Hob tar Theta Tod there poured Forth but they were terrible one and the White foam blood upon his lips Asho raved. As soon Asho would collect his thoughts to started for Uncle Joe s. Lie knew that Joe must have seen the horse in there for tho animal would not have Boon less than Throe or four Day sat tho work and perhaps tho de predator might belong to Joo. Just is tho Captain reached the Road he Mot Sam Warner. Sam was not a Temperance Man nor a did lie Boling to tho Church but to was a particular. Friend to Uncle Joe and did no to think much of Daniel Lober. A a or. Warner a cried the Captain trembling All Over with rage does Joe Bassett horse f a was believe he does Squire a returned Sam. A is it a White one v Quot. A a kind of 1 How old is it a a Wall a taint very old nor very Young but its kind o shaky around the Captain Lober posted off to Uncle Joe Scot and found the old follow at work about the premises. A or. Basset a a. Said with awful meaning a a do you lib rss a. Wall i rather Calk late As a own to. I Dew Squire a answered the old fellow. 1 and did you know that your horse had do troyed More than Talf of my wheat a a Jerew Salem you Doans to say so Squire 1�?T exclaimed Joe in terror.

You know that your horse bos been in my Field a i own re a at he Hadnot that a a a. 4 that a enough.? and with that the Captain went off. He wont to one of the assessors from whom to Learned that Joe owned some two or Throe Hundras dollars Worth of property and then he went to a lawyers and had Jos bassets used setting the damages at one Hundred dollars. The lawyer sent Joe a letter Bat the old fellow refused to take any notice of it and the ease was carried into court Captain Lober having sworn that to would push Uncle Joo to the last extremity. A. Tbs court was in session and the Day for tho trial arrived. The room was crowded for a whisper had go an abroad that Uncle. Joo Woi ild got the. Best of it. Finally the Case. Was called in and Lobert a counsel made a statement of the cause which had led to tho suit enlarging upon the damage which had Beon done to his client a a property Aud explaining How Little. Tho transgressor had seemed to Caro for it. A what is the defence a a nobody seemed to a is the defendant in court a. All eyes were turned upon Uncle Joe and to Rose. A Aro Yuu the defendant in this Case asked the a to a returned Joe with a vacant stare. A yes�?you.�?T. _ a he is your Honor a said Lobert a lawyer. A have you got counsel sir a the judge resumed. 1 _ _ a notes i knows on a replied Joo with a half foolish half wicked look. A you Are probably aware of the reason Why you have Beon called Here pursued the court be Midg to Many a i for some kind of complaint Captain Lobert a Beon a a exactly a said Lobor a counsel. A your horse has destroyed much property belonging to my a guess not a Squire returned Joe a Oase that son possible. My Hoss Quot would no to do no Sich thing.�?T. A what do you mean by that a Quot a Why i Hainet got no Hoss is is capable of doing so much mischief.�?T. A Well leave that for others to decide said the counsel with a very significant not of the you horse a a from tho Christian ail Vocolo and journal Lay sermons to the clergy by Buzz you my Bret Horn have Pum Melod tho class i represent All tho Days of our conscious lives. You have employed. Both Telescope and Micro Hope in tho discovery of our sins sins immediate and palpable and bin Remote and invisible. One Hundred and four times in the year besides week night lectures you Havo reviewed and scrutinized our Enn Dot motives thoughts and passions. You have peered into our Domestic relations discussed our business affairs scrutinized our social standing and in fact examined us through to bring to Light our hidden faults until to have not dared to look each other in the face As to sat in Ehu Roh nor keep company even with our leprous solves. Now of nil this no complaint it is your calling and you bravely execute your commission. Besides it must be confessed that our spiritual indolence needs stimulation our Solf deep tip exp Bure while our positive sins require rebuke. In fact to Ara poor sinners and deserve the severest gospel reproof. On the other he he you must admit that we Bear it All patiently and without murmuring. Better behaved than politicians to never get up during ser Vico and contradict any statement though our condemn your arguments we never expostulated and Are so considerate that you Are. Always permitted to feel that the Victory is yours indeed you Hove a glorious Field in which to do Battle Quot Minoa you have no foes least they never appear. It is True to can stand More from the veterans of the ministry than Froni the a a a beardless youth just from College perhaps whose artillery is drawn More from the classics than the gospel and who paints our follies with an air of superiority As though he had none of his . Now in consideration of our life Long patience and uniform meekness you will hear with us will you not if once in a lifetime we turn upon you and kindly preach you a few sermons. We will avoid harshness Content ourselves with suggestions in fact will Only whisper a few1 things in your oar with the Assurance that your understanding will be less Dull than ours your ear quicker to hear and your heart softer to be impressed. Lond sermons. Much of your pulpit efficiency Bret Bern is weakened by Long Sermon. One hour it is True is usually appropriated for this purpose in tho Bervie but generally against tho judgment of the people. A a Quarter of an hour taken from the discourse and divided into singing and Reading with perhaps responses by the congregation would tend to enliven the whole service and to a great improvement. Consider if you please 1. The hour of your discourse is the Only one in the whole week when your congregation Are required to sit actually still. Under any circumstances it is a severe task but when you consider the bad ventilation of the of Huron All Sexton Are tho Laws of health and Comfort and that to Are usually Why a we want Nono of your Why s i you own Thorso a a Quot. But i want to explain. Cap Home to me a Bilins Over with Wrath and axed me did i Boss and i told him yes. Then he biped Over More made lots of threats and went off in a Heap of passion Afore i would a but do you deny that your horse was in my client a a Field.?�?T a it a been thar unless somebody putitthar.�?T. A that a not the thing. Do you deny that your horse did this damage a a Sartin i do.�?T. A yours is a White horse _ a rather of a Yal Lorish cast a Squire. A and poor and old a a Beetle shaky i a then How do you know that it was not your horse that did this damage ?that a jest the pm int i wanted to a a Plain quire answered Uncle Joe very earnestly id with imperturbable Gravity. Of any body a axed me this Afore i Home up Here i should a told Mem All about it. The foot is Squire i never owned but one Hoss in the world and i Don t never expect to an that Ore is a saw Hoss a. The court smiled and hid its Foo behind a Book. T4e captains counsel looked very Blank while tho Captain Hir self turned very red and very Pale by turns in the mean time the spectators Amo nigh splitting with laughter. Somo attempt was made to reprimand Uncle Joe for this result but he was so simple and honest on the too asian that All blame fell where it righteously belonged upon the my who had brought tho was very easily proved that Joe never owned a live Hoss a and he was sent about his business. It was a Small affair perhaps but it made a great noise and so hot and heavy were the various remarks that oame showering Down upon Daniel Lobor that in loss than a month to was glad to sell out and move. After this nolo Joe a geese and hens wandered about without tho fear of being shot but his a old Hossy never went away save when it Rode upon its owners shoulder. �e7"on bearing the song entitled the Dearest spot on a a rth is Home a a married Man Romar Koil that to found his Homo so dear that a was going to break up housekeeping and go to boarding. Wedded Irr our Soarf Urlike culprits confined in shocks thou the unreasonableness of an hour of close attention to one part of tha service. More clearly appears. 2. Ministers like Layman Are Apt to choose the easiest Way in the discharge of hence it is we have so Many Long sermons it is a saving of brain work to preach them. It requires Moro study More intense thought and closer logic to deliver a discourse in forty five minutes than to spin it out an hour and a compound pressure to get it within thirty to forty minutes. Daniel Webster once apologized to the court for a lengthy argument on the ground that time had not been afforded him to be Short. Condensation does indeed require Timo whether in boiling substances to essences or in reducing sermons to is not always tho Quantity of a thing but tho Quality which Makos it desirable. A.3. When one is writing a Book it is immaterial How Large it is to Long As the matter is readable Reader fails to finish it i in one hour he May Lay it aside till another j is convenient Bat the object of preaching is to make 0 Lodgment of truth within a Given time and if the preacher fails to accomplish the object a within forty five minutes the defect is with himself and it. Is consequently unfair to the congregation to Blunder on fifteen minutes More with the Hope of final Suo Oess. A distinguished lawyer once remarked a a if i fail to make an impression upon the jury within thirty minutes my cause is hopeless All Effort alter that is but waste of words.�?�. 4. On Heather hand impressions made within three quarters of an hour Are often lost for want of sagacity to quit when the object is Tjai Neli. It is sheer nonsense to feel obliged to finish the Skeleton that Liss before you when by doing so you destroy the effect the part already delivered. When one has Laid out a. Fine argument or embellished his theme with a Beautiful figure it is hard very hard to Lay either aside but the a end which is to fasten truth upon Jho hearer justifies the a orifice. It surely is better for your hearers to go away with a few truths firmly fastened on their hearts than to multiply propositions to that the earlier ones become lost. And yet in very Many oases this is the precise reason Why so Little impression is made by really excellent discourses. The preacher foiled to discern the precise moment when the in Twiest on the part of the hearers culminated. 5. Other considerations May be added Why sermons should be Short it your preaching is Dull thirty minutes is As Long in All de Conoy As you should Oom Qaud the attention of the audience. If your voice is weak or indistinct so that Many of your hearers a re forced to lean toward the pulpit in order to oath the sentences a half hour is Long enough to keep them strained. If you screech and the screen hers Are numerous so that nervous Sisters no shocked it is unfair to require an hour of penance when half the time will destroy More ear Drums than All the a a von i Senbergs can restore. A 6. One hour May not to too Long when the 1. The Church shall be properly ventilated 2. The audience shall not be Jamed closer than a scat. 3. The speaker shall have a pleasant voice a fervent spirit and an interesting theme. 4. He shall feel conscious that he and his hearers Are in Harmony and that they Are moving along with him in unflagging interest to tho end of the hour. Thus Brethren to Havo ventured on the first Sermon. True to assurances in the outset you Seo to have been kind though candid. But if any feel aggrieved at these Plain utterances we will be Content in. Reflecting that following our own advice when tho object was gained we Oloyed the discourse. I passed the Winter of byrons death in Greece and in the latter part of february wont to miss Longhi to boo him. To was then suffering from tho effect of which of purred in the Middle of february. The first time i called at his residence i was not permitted to Seo him but in a Fow Days i received s polite note from him at the hand of a negro servant who was n native of America and whom Byron was kind to and proud of to tho last i found the Post in a weak and irritable state but he treated me with the utmost kindness. Ico said that at the time called upon him nil strangers and most of his friends were excluded from his room. A a but a said How a had i known an american was at the door,.you should not Havo been denied. I love your country air it is the Quot Only spot of gods Green Earth not yet desecrated by in our conversation i alluded to the sympathy at the time Felt in America for tho struggle in Greece. All to said at tho Timo in reply was. A a poor Greece 1 poor Greece 1 Onoe the richest on Earth. God knows i have tried to help a he Eil i who then referred terms to Boz Xaris then just falloff and showed me a letter from the chief. A in a few Days after i had left him i received another. Note from him requesting me to cull and bring with me Irving a sketch Book. I took it in my hand and went once More to the illustrious authors residence. He Rose from his Couoh Tyhon i entered and pressing my hand warmly said a a have you got this sketch Book a i handed it to him when seizing it with enthusiasm he turned to a a tho broken a a that a said to is Ono of the finest things Ever written on Earth and i want to Hoar an american read it. But stay do you know Irving a 1 replied that i had never seen him. A a god bless him 1�?� exclaimed Byron a a he is a Genius and to has something better than Genius a heart 1 i w�6h i could see him but i four i never shall. Well read a the broken heart yes a the broken heart a what a work in in closing the first paragraph i said a a shall i confess it ? i believe in broken a yes a exclaimed Byron a and so do i and so does every one but philosophers and fools.�?�. So i waited whenever he interrupted me until he requested me to go on yet i cared More for the commentary As it came fresh from byrons heart. While i was Reading one of. The most touching portions of the Mournful piece i observed that Byron wept. To turned his eyes Apon to and said a a you see me weep sir. Irving himself Nevor wrote that Story without weeping nor Oan i hear it without tears. I have not wept much in this world for trouble Nevor brings tears to my eyes but i always have tears for a the broken a when i read the last line of Moore a verses at the close of the piece Byron said a a what a being that Tom is and Irving avid Emmet and his Beautiful into 1 what. Moment of horror. If time is really Money a a not to longest a note the Best ? beings All 1 sir How Many each men As Washington Irving Are there in America a god done to Send Many such spirits into this world. I want to go to America for five reasons i want to see living i want to see your stupendous scenery a want see Washington a grave i want to see the classic form of living Freedom want to see your government recognize Greece As an Independent nation. Poor Greece 1�?� these were the last words of Byron. Duels among Public men. The other Day an incident occurred in the parliment of Belgium which recalls some of the. Most unpleasant events in English and american history. A member of the lower House by the name of de loot who represents tho Large wealthy and influential City of Antwerp and who is regarded As one of the Foremost politicians of the country accused tho ministry of provoking tho hostility of the United states by taking too Active a part in the process of Imperial izing Mexico merely bus also Maximilian Trio first happened to be the son in Law of the belgian in tho course of his remarks he asserted that the officers of the government Lead granted permits to emigrants for Mexico which were so worded that the holders would be shot As deserters unless they joined the army of Max Ini Ilan upon their arrival in the distracted country of their destination. Hereupon the minister of War Baron Chazan became exceedingly irate and declared that the Man who made such an Nous action would alone be capable of performing such an act of a a tho Deputy from Antwerp appealed to the chair asking to have the minister rebuked for what he doomed a violation of parliamentary Deo Enoy. Failing to obtain satisfaction in this Way the Deputy challenged the minister. The Ohallo nge was accepted. Baron Chazal was slightly wounded and then the combatants in a Lordanoe with the usual custom in such oases Dao Lared themselves satisfied Shook hands pronounced each other men of Honor and swore eternal Friendship. There is certainly a comical Sido of duelling. Two men indulging in such bitter feelings of enmity that each is willing to risk his own life fir tho Soke of endangering that of his adversary meet fire Onoe or twice at each other and then utter the warmest protestations of Mutual regard. The most Pinali Oihus animosity changed by a pistol shot into the most devoted Friendship 1 the Days when duels among Publio men were common in Anglo Saxon lands seem to have passed away. But they do not lie very far Back in the past. In England even during the present Century such statesmen re Canning of Connell tho two needs the Diniko of Wellington Castlereagh and do israeli have not been Odu Argeous enough to refrain from sanctioning by their example this assured us wicked pro time. In our country the list of Publio men who hive participated in duels is still larger. The Mournful incident of Hamilton s death at the hands of Burr is Well remembered. Five shots were exchanged Between de Witt Clinton and John Swar Tabut while Clinton also challenged another gentleman. Jackson killed one Man and fought several others. So did benton.4 olay Aud Randolph fought in -1620. Many men still comparatively Young will recollect the affair botwen two members of Congress cil Ley and Graves in 1838, in which tho former was killed. Even now soar oely a session of our National legislature passes without threats of a resort to this code of Honor. Happily of late years either on be count of tho unwillingness of our eminent legislators to deprive tho country of their services or because of a who Leomo fear of Publio opinion these threats have generally ended with their quilt when requested to take time by the a doubt a Hethe tho dlr fellow bail Ady hair left to take hold of. For Twenty three years old joke Willard has cultivated the soil in Baldwin county and drawn therefrom for himself and wife. He is childless. Not Long ago Jake left the House in search of a missing cow. His route led him through an old worn out Patch of Clay land of about six afros in extent in tho Centro of which was a Well Twenty five or thirty feet deep that at some time probably had furnished the inmates of a dilapidated House Noar by with water. In passing by this spot an ill wind drifted Jakes a tils from his head and maliciously wafted it to the Edge of the Woll and in it tumbled. Now Jake had always practice tho virtue of Economy and lie immediately set about recovering the lost hot. He ran to tho Woll and finding it was dry at tho Bottom to uncoiled to Ioco which he had brought for the purpose of capturing tho truant cow and after several attempts to oath the hat with a noose he concluded to Bave time the Well himself. To accomplish this he made fast tho one end of tho Ropo to a stump hard by and was soon on his Way Down tho Well. _. �?Ti�?T4 it is a fact of which Jake was no less oblivious than tho Reader Hereof that Ned Weals was in the dilapidated building aforesaid and that Anhild Blind horse with boil on his neck who had Beon turned out to die was lazily grazing within a Short distance of Lii Well. A. The Devil himself or some other wicked spirit put it into Ned a cranium to Havo a Little fun so he quietly slipped up to the horse unbuckled the strap and approached with blow and measured a a Ting a Ling to the Edge of tho Wall. A a Dang the old Blind horse 1�?� said Jake lies cumin this Way sure and ainu to got no More mors sense nor to fall in whoa Ball 1�?�. But tho continued approach of the title a Ling said just As plainly As words that old Ball a a besides Jake was at tho Bottom resting before trying to a a Shine it up the rope. A a great Jerusalem 1�?� said he a a the old cuss will to a top of to fore i can say Jack Robinson. Whoa 1 Dang Yogi whoa 1�?� just then Ned Drew up the Edge of the Well and with his foot kicked a Little dirt Intuit. A a of ? lord 1�?� exclaimed Jake falling on his Knees at the Bottom of tho Well a a a in a gone now 1�?whoa in now i Lay to Down to Sloop whoa 1 balls i pry the lord my Siil to whoa now of lord have mercy of Ine la \ Ned Quot could hold in no longer and fearful that Jake might suffer from his fright he revealed himself. _. Probably Ned did no to make tracks with his hotels toward that Well. May be Jake Wasny to up to the top in Short order. May be not i done to know but i do know that if Jake finds out who sout you this it will be the last squib you a got from me. Birls a Lela father. A a my hands Are so stiff i can hardly hold a pen a said Farmer Wilber Asho sat Down a a to figure out some accounts that were getting behind could i help Yon Fathor said Lucy laying Down her Bright Crotchet work. A a i should be glad to know if i Only knew what you wished a Well i should t wonder if you could Lucy a he said Refino Tivoli. A a pretty Good at figures Are you a a a it would to a Fino Story if i did not know something of them after going twice through the arithmetic a said Lucy laughing. A a Well i can a Bizow you in five minutes what i have to do and it la be a powerful help if you Oan do it for to. I Novor was a master hand at accounts in my Best Days and it does not grow any easier is i can see since i put on my very patiently did the helpful daughter plot through tho Long Dell line of figures leaving the Gay worsted work to lie Idle All evening though she was in such Hasto to finish her Scarf. It was Reward enough to see her tired Fathor who had been toiling All Day for herself and the other loved ones sitting costly in his easy chair enjoying his weekly paper As it can to enjoyed in a country Home where nows from the great world beyond comc3 Seldom and is eagerly sought for. The clock struck nine Befaro her task was Over but the Hearty a a thank you daughter a thousand times a took away All sense of weariness. A a a its rather looking up when a Man Oan Havo an amanuensis a said the Fathor. A it is not every Farmer that can Quot nor every Farmers daughter that is of liable of making Ono a said Mother with a ittle pardonable Pride. A a nor Overy one that would to willing if they were Able a said or. list was a sad truth. How Many daughters might Boot use to their fathers in this and Many other ways who Nevor think of lightening a Oare or Labur. If asked to perform some Little service it is Dono at Best with reluctant step and an unwilling air which robs it of nil Sunshine or claim to gratitude. A girl help your father give him a cheerful Home to rest in when evening comes and do not worry hib life away by fretting because to cannot afford you the luxuries you covet or consent to your desires when in his mature judgement they Are no Thor Wise nor pc deut and that of your own Best interests and that of your family. Such a Home atmosphere tends More than anything Olse to produce a Bard morose Ohar actor which must Over make old age unlovely and uncomfortable. Children exert is great an influence on their parents As parents do of their Hildron.
