But by a Hap y coincidence in his very first exit from the latter Ilace which shooting with his boisterous companions his Eye met the search King gaze of a Friend for whom he Lead entertained the greatest deference his voice immediately Slink to silence and he stole Home overcome with shame and conviction. The incident was useful leading him calmly to compare his course and prospects with those of other Days and a reformation ensued which continued More than a year. But where avarice or selfishness Are the motives to action no permanent Good can be effected. In proportion As his business revived fear of the cause which had injured it decreased until at length he began to smile contemptuously at the 7ii Mvi which had so Long barred him from his highest enjoyment he returned to his former course a but again reformed and thus Long continued alternately changing sometimes abstaining even for yers from intoxicating drink and then plunging in their vortex deeper after each successive Reform till in the struggle his business was ruined his credit and influence gone and himself the consummation of All wickedness a drunkard penniless Dis embed loathsome. All his natural Pride had not yet forsaken him though it proved a curse rather Titan a Blessing. He would not sign the pledge of abstinence because he considered himself As possessive of sufficient moral strength to dons Helra Frfd nor join a Temperance society because the Corn play would to til Iraq. Thus ruled by the giant impulse of an evil passion aided by a contemptible Pride he sunk As we have seen lower and lower in the grades of . It is a strange feature of human nature that a slight incident has often More elect to Rouse the mind by reviving old associations than a powerful train of present circumstances. Hence past life apr ears a dream of Sunshine whose waking is a Stormy scene that surrounds us and hence to Lough we May be surrounded by friends and admirers the transient remembrance of one being whom we formerly loved can throw a gloom Over society and make us lonely amid a crowd. Such an incident occurred in the family of which we Are speaking and what Honor and wealth and shame and the ties of affection had vainly demanded was effected by a seeming trifle. As is usual with the inebriated All that could be exchanged for Money had Long since disappeared from the House of William a. One Little article alone remained sacred. It was his own miniature and the circumstances connected with it were affecting. It had been Given to the now miserable wife sometime before marriage and when in con sequence of leaving the City on account of his health he had but faint expectation of again seeing her. The Bright Sunshine of that Lovely period still danced before him and Drunken and degraded As he was he had Long regarded that object As a Talisman too holy for his polluting touch. But rum he must have there was no Way of obtaining it but through the picture and though at first he was shocked with the sacred mount ans Munt Calvary. By the Rev. J. T. .

The strange and painful scene in the Garden had passed by and the shameful examination in the lighted chamber of the Gigli priest was Over. Insult and contempt had marked every step of the villainous proceedings till at length one wretch More impious than the rest advanced and struck Christ in the How the wlver1ne discovered the Lead a fact.

This too passed by and also the second mockery of a trial in Pilate s Hall and the uprise Sun was flashing Down on the towers and domes of Jerusalem and the vast a population was again abroad thronging every Street. But a few took any interest in the Fate of Jesus of Nazareth yet few were filled with the bitterest hate. The victim was now in their Power Given up to their will and they commenced the bloody scene they were to enact by ski Ittis in in his face and striking his unresisting Cheek with blow after blow.

In taking a ramble lately through tie lower part of our room and my Little companion screamed in terror at the scene he could scarcely understand. A painful silence ensued. Suddenly the door opened and to our utter dismay the husband and father entered. Ragged and miserable he was but a glance at his face convinced us Liat he had not been drinking and Hope for himself and his family Diss rated the first emotion of terror when near the Middle of the room he paused turned round and immediately recognized us and before we had time to Rise or even speak had seized our hand with frantic Energy and exclaimed a Quot sir.

It was the residence of an in Sions and although his will had acquiesced yet the reaction fortunate being whom All Effort to reclaim from the habit of intemperance had hitherto been unavailing. Formerly in extensive business he had occupied an influential position in society and even when rum had reduced him to poverty the Pride imbibed in his former condition of conscience aided by the last scene at Home almost maddened him. He reached the tavern door but the giant spell of a Power hitherto unfelt Drew him from the three times he vainly attempted to enter until at last with a desperate plunge he leaped upon the floor and from that Pence he regarded Temperance societies As assemblies of the to the bar where he demanded his usual morning draught. Low and vulgar portion of the Community and considered it insulting to be requested to join them and thus fortified by a contemptible Pride his evil habit resisted All the entreaties of friends the advantages of business or the tears of his Quot family.

A crack Steamboat anecdote. The propensity of Many people in the West and South West to bring into circulation words of recent local coinage a most of them of not the most Graceful texture is on the that was the gloomiest wave that Ever broke Over increase and ought to be checked. Words and expressions. The soul of the Saviour and he fell before it. Christ was dead and to All human appearance the world was an orphan. How heaven regarded this disaster and the universe Felt unmeaning and vulgar that would Blush to acknowledge their origin Are now very common in the intelligent circles n the Southy Fosty find Timeir Way frequently into the press the death of major Brown. Camargo mex Ico aug. 18, 1816. Editors of the Vic Yunc i do not recollect having seen and detailed account of the wounding of major Brown at the Bombini dment of the fort which now bears his name. I was very much interested the other evening while listening to a description of the sad scene Given by a gentleman who was an Eye witness and whose statement can be relied on As perfectly Correct. On the morning of the Goth of May the fourth Day of the bombardment about Day break the Gallant commander of the fort took advantage of a Short cessation of the enemy s fire to get a Little rest having been constantly on the watch the night before. He remained in his tent about an hour when he left it and visited the bastion commanded by capt. Miles. Here he found several Young officers collected who were conversing and Jock Early remarking on the Novelty of their position having never before heard an enemy s Cannon. The major joined in the conversation but in a Short time left them saying As he turned away Quot Young gentlemen i Hope you May live to fight Many Battles and As i Jinow you All i Hope Yon May have an Opportunity to do yourselves he left this bastion to visit capt. Lowd and gave that officer orders to fire a certain number of guns at certain intervals and to produce As great an effect As possible. This was done for a purpose then Only known to himself. A few hours afterwards As the major was again going around the fort accompanied by his adjutant Lieut. Page a Gallant and very efficient Young officer now adjutant of the 7th infantry he informed him that the guns which he had ordered capt. Lowd to fire was Tho signal agreed upon Between Gen. Taylor and himself to inform the general that he was closely besieged. He had scarcely finished the sentence when they heard the report of a Morter. At this instant they were passing Between the traverse which runs across the fort and the Magazine. They knew not from what direction the Shell was coming but both of them fell Down to avoid it. Maj. Brown reclined against the traverse and adjutant Page against the Magazine. They were within about eight feet of each other. As the major was in the act of lying Down his leg was for an instant brought in the same i position As if he had been sitting in a chair or Bent nearly to a right Angle the foot resting on the ground. Page was looking at him at that instant and saw the Shell strike him in its decent. It hit him on the knee and crushed the whole leg downward to the foot tearing his Boot to i pieces. The blow threw him partly Over and resting on his hands and one foot and turning Pale from the intensity of the pain he exclaimed god Quot which As far As i have heard was the Only exclamation of that nature which the Brave Man made from his fall until his death. The instant Young Pago saw that his commanding officer was wounded he sprang to his feet and looked for men to assist in taking him to the Hospital. Quartermaster sergeant Henry was close by and was at the adjutant Side in an instant and almost every Man in sight some ten or twelve in number rushed up immediately. The surgeon was immediately sent for and the major was instantly conveyed to the Hospital tent. As soon As Raisel from the ground he grasped his leg just above the knee with both hands and held it firmly compressed until the to Arnif Guettes were put on. By this time he was Verj faint. Numbers of his men were gathered around to learn the Fate of their beloved commander and seeing them he said Quot go to your work men i am but one among the officers and men under major Brown were warmly attached to him and they never alluded to his name without an expression of deep regret at his fall. In a conversation with adjutant Page last evening i referred to the death of his commander. He corroborated the foregoing statement and in conclusion made the following impressive remarks Quot i remained with him As Long As my duty would permit and left his Side with deep and heart Felt sorrow that the service of my country had lost in its defence a spirit so Noble a a Man who in his most intense agony thought Only of the proud Trust confided to him by his commanding when i asked after being informed that his life could not be saved if he had any request to make to his friends any arrangements to make before his death he very quietly answered Quot no my friends i have made my i should have stated that when Lieut. Page and the men sprang to the Side of maj. Brown the Shell that had hit him was lying in their midst. They never Stop to see whether it burst or not. Had it exploded it would have killed nearly All of them. Fortunately the fuse after burning awhile failed to ignite the contents of the Shell and the Noble Fellows were saved. No. 28 thought we perceived in its sudden Flash the Index of a min soon As you will have received the Money you will Exchange groaning for an Opportunity to soar from the accumulations it for liquor. But i can do you a much greater which were crushing it to that position for which it had been created. Her history with which we were partially acquainted. What is it Quot persuade you to join the sons of Temperance. I know that likeness. We started in life together we became caused us to gaze upon her with the deepest emotion n. The drunkards miserable outcasts together but i received an shameful conduct of the father had entailed shame and of invitation to join tie order i accepted and it has made me Fli Tiou upon his child and the one whom she had Long and Quot an ardently loved rejected her with the cruel reflection that she i they Are a secret was a drunkard s Daguer. That expression sunk at once i a a Quot if you were to build a House would you invite the into her soul and she withdrew from society to drag out robber to examine every door and lock and stairway and her existence in hopeless misery. Inlet until they became so familiar that he could find his the pause which ensued at our meeting did not Long con j Way through them in the darkest night Quot Tine. The Mother s mind seemed to be Labouring under an i i would not. But what has that to do with the sons amount of grief too great to be contained and amid Many of temp France interruptions she confided to me her tale of sorrow. It was Quot the order possesses just enough secrecy to guard it Ming Letl with the remorse of being in part its instruments from the spy and the impostor. It is a moral edifice pos for on the night which made her a Bride she filled the first Sessing a perfect right to conceal every item of its plan from Glass of wine offered to her husband. The robber who might otherwise enter Asho has in common Quot of sir Quot she exclaimed Quot the memory of this haunts societies and overturn or derange every thing fair and Lovely me by Day and by night.

With none to resist and none to be slain a change came Over the feelings of the multitude and they began one by one to return to the sudden darkness also that wrapped thrilling incident. The following singular incident so suited to awaken All the feelings of a Mother s heart is copied from a scottish paper a Mother having left her child an infant of two years of age to play about the door till she attended some household duties went when she was disengaged to look for her charge. The Urchin could hardly crawl and she expected to find him at the door Cheek. There however it was not and the Mother in considerable alarm called on several neighbors to inquire if they had seen her one had seen it and a considerable time had now elapsed in making inquiries the anxiety and fears of the poor woman became proportionally augmented. Parents can Only judge of her feelings when no Trace of her child could be neighbors kindly assisted in making strict inquisition in every Well Pigsty he Roost or out of the Way Corner for the wandered wean a he was however no where to be found and it was resolved that the Bell should be sent through the town. In the meantime the Mother in a state bordering on distraction went into her own House to rummage every Hole and Bunker Bead and cupboard. While thus employed one of her sympathising friends happened to cast her eyes on the Gable of a Heig Boring House Ane there with Surprise and horror discovered the lost child perched on a ladder within a few Steps of its top apparently delighted with its state of exaltation. A lady endeavoured to induce the ambitious mite to come Down but not it Shook its head and sat fast. She then tried to get up the lad,1er, but half Way up her head grew dizzy and she was obliged to descend without accomplishing her object. The Mother was informed by this time that the child was found but her feelings May be More easily Felt than described when she saw its danger. The ladder was Long enough to reach the eaves of the three Story House and within four Steps of the top of it was the child holding firmly by one of the bars and looking quite complacently on the faces below. With trembling Steps the Mother cautiously ascended the ladder but when within Arm s length of the infant As if to mock the agony of the Parent he clambered up the remaining Steps and straddling across the Topmost bar held out his Little hands and smiled As if proud of his daring feat. The Motl or at last folded the object of her fears and affections to her bosom and descended with her precious Burden in safety shedding tears of gratitude and breathing a heart Felt prayer to that Providence which had so preserved her child.

It cannot be said that lie was leading him for he had evidently been compelled to resort to coercive measures As his right hand firmly grasped the Collar of a Brown Linen sack coat covering the upper portion of his companion s person by which he was compelling him to Advance no Lens Miens. The lady for it is useless to conceal the fact that the companion of the old gentleman was a lady was a remarkably interesting youth. He was not built exactly on the Appollo principle for his Knees had a decided inward tendency his Nan keen pantaloons were a Little Short but his shirt Collar made up by its extreme size for any efficiency in the Nan keens his Sandy hair was Cut very close to his head that it seemed a matter of extreme doubt whether it would Ever attain any considerable length.

The recorder intimated that he was not familiar enough with the external appearance of Victualler to judge As he had never seen them except in their place of business when they generally had on White aprons and were in their shirt sleeves but he had from the remark of the complainant that the lad was Quot his re rectory apprentice Quot that he kept a restaurant.

Nobody would the speaker Here appeared to be much overpowered by his feelings and again produced the Brown silk handkerchief and wiped his eyes and while his hand was in extended it to his Large and flattened nasal Organ which he blew vigorously. Quot but the complaint Quot suggested the recorder perfectly unmoved.

Quot does he not treat you Well Quot inquired the recorder. Quot i should t say he did Quot returned the boy. Quot a boy can t live on hard filed Rice All the time or dry bread nuther.

It May do very Well in England but it Don t do this Side o the Fence no Quot sir Quot said the Stout gentleman getting very red in Tho face Quot my bosom sir Quot a and Here he thrust his right hand under his Waistcoat Quot has always been filled with the milk of human kindness but the conduct of that Ere boy is enough sir to stiffen it into a Complete Blue Monge.

He lives off the Werry fat of the Lamb Quot Quot yes when the Muton s tainted so you can t eat it Quot interrupted Tho apprentice. The recorder Here suggested that As there was a Mutual dislike Between the parties it would perhaps be better for both to cancel the indentures. The Stout gentleman after marching across the floor times with his double Chin buried behind the folds of his White Cravat one hand thrust into his bosom and the other placed behind his Back holding up tie skirts of his coat finally raised his head and a Aid that As the Quot Ichneumon of an apprentice was determined to become an incorrigible Vagabond he would adopt the suggestion of his both parties then left the court the boy in great glee , with an Infinity of jerks of the head Quot it Ain t no sort o use to try to come any furring games Over a Merican had concluded a bargain with the Captain for the passage of the party. Quot to that boat sir 1 to a cracked boat i am am astonished Quot and turning to the Driver that one act would be the origin of this misery would de now reclaimed Many of my acquaintances Are reformed drive him of All his honors All his happiness and that when and thousands and tens of thousands Are pressing on to join would implore him with bitter weeping to Reform it would this fraternity of love.

A cracked boat indeed Quot the heavens and the throb of the earthquake which made in a twinkling she was on her Way Home those three crosses reel to and fro like Cedars in a tempest. The husband and the others of Tho party were lost in As had sobered their feelings and All but the soldiery were glad Tonish ment. But it was of no use to dwell farther. The to be away from a scene that had ended with such supernal leading spirit of the party was retracing her journey and ural exhibitions. Gradually the noise and confusion around the others had no alternative but to follow her. The Hill top receded Down the slopes the shades of evening the Captain of the boat wished to know whether or not began to creep Over Tho landscape throwing into still More the lady was crazy but her husband who by this Lime had ghastly Relief those three White corpses stretched on High and caught a glimpse of the cause of his wife s dismay turned streaked with blood and All was Over. No not now for upon him with indignation the sepulchre was yet to open and the slain Christ was to Quot hark be Captain the lady is neither crazy nor cracked mount the heaven of heavens in his glorious ascension.

Quot How does your county go this year Quot asked a zealous politician of a Berks county Man. Quot veil i can t Tell much Quot replied the honest dutchman Quot de Man what tells As How to vote has not been . Y con. End. From the new York Sun of August 28. The California expedition. From inquiries which we hear on All sides there appears to be no Little anxiety among the people to understand the meaning of this expedition and the views of the government in reference to it. All that can be Learned about it is that Secretary March wrote a queer and somewhat mysterious letter to col. Stevenson that a regiment of men has been raised fed and clothed at the expense of the government that this regiment is quartered on governor s Island and that sundry fat jobs and Good speculations have been made by one or two favorite tailor Sand shopkeepers in equipping the same. Perhaps this is All Well enough As things go Ina Smuch As the Money is to come out of the Public . But the important question and the one which ought to be answered is what is the government going to do with this regiment ? for what purpose has it been raised and clothed the general understanding is that at some future Day it is to be shipped and sent by water around Cape torn to California. The next question is what is it going there for ? surely not to take any part in the War with Mexico for we Are told that we Are on the Point of having a peace with that country. And if this were not so if the War is to be fought out this regiment might be got into action much quicker than by taking a six months voyage around South America. They cannot expect to reach California before next Spring by which time the War will be finished beyond All question if the government does its duty. Would the Powers at Washington like to admit that they have any expectation of not bringing the War to a close before that time and that there is a Prospect of its dragging through another summer ? we do not believe that such an admission would be very patiently received by the people of this country or that the administration would be willing to make it. What then do they propose to do with this regiment ? Are they going to Send u Colony of settlers to California under pay in clothes bought by the government and in ships hired by the government ? in other words is this a grand speculation got up at the Public for private Benefit ? if such is the object it would seem to be very Little in accordance with the rigid principles of Economy and constitutional Law Laid Down in the veto of the River and Harbor Bill in reference to appropriations of the Public moneys. We make not the slightest imputation against any of the worthy men enlisted in this Enterprise but we deem it due to the people who Are to pay for it to give them some Light us to what it All Means. If the government is about to engage in hiring men and ships for the purpose of establishing colonies in Distant countries we should like to know in what article and Section of the Constitution the authority for entering into this new Branch of business is found. He who in trials knows How to Lely on Liin Iselt Quot a ill have a Friend who will never abandon him
