Mrs. Hobbs was an amiable and tractable j wife her ideas and expectations were modelled precisely after those of her husband and so the Energy of both parents were All directed to the same object Viz. To make a great Man of master Isaac Newton Hobbs. With this sub irme object in View toil became a plea privation a sacred duly. V mean Lime the Young gentle Itwari made his corporeal developments but slowly at the age of five was smaller by Many degrees than Chil Dren of Fiat age usually Are. This was a vilifying circumstance men of great remarked or. Hobbs Are invariably Small in a can did acquaintance observed that the child exhibited a very Dull aspect. Quite a philosophical exclaimed the fond daddy All your philosophers have a sleepy look the boy is As deep first of my astonishment horror dismay and mortification locked up the Tongue of the old Man for some minutes. At length he ejaculated in a sepulchral voice Isaac nay son have you no Ambi Tion i Hope replied Isaac i am ambitious to make a decent figure in any business i undertake. I should much rather be a skilful mender of shoes than an indifferent expounded of the then i am the greatest wretch in the universe exclaimed the old Man wildly clapping his hands on his tem Ples and exhibiting a countenance wrung by the most intense anguish. The son was struck with remorse and pity and remained silent. As a Well mind i Tell a in deed added mrs. Hobbs it would make your hair bristle sometimes to he in How he in his we have said that mrs. Hobbs adopted most Imph Italy All the plans opinions of he husband. Part of i scheme was to have but one child and mrs. Ii., appreciating his motives never bore him another. A to Killil Phreno Logist was called in to inspect the boy s head and made a most Lav 01 Able report for which he was liberally remunerated by the father. Michael been a Little sceptical in relation to the science but now lie became a bigoted advocate of its doct mrs. Little Isaac was sent to school was Well of by his teachers and at a suitable age was in moved to College where he continued for seme Al though his parents were sorely pinched to Supply the requisite funds. At the nge of Nineteen or. Isaac Newton Hobbs quit College and commenced the study of Law and after the usual term of probation was admitted to the once a Soliloquy sized the eur or. Hobbs and the gales of preferment Are open before him n thing else but persevere is a glorious prospects w done Obbs Well you Sha hear Prospect Well done old Mil done at last m one of the Lyle us or father _ distinguished celebrated or illustrious Isaac Newton Hobbs member of Congress and so Forth a Secretary of Sale knows but he May be Here the old fellow took the right do build Cas trim the Isaac a with to e intended chiefly for the be of old people who have for when people .5 l. A. Lles air it is Well to them As lofty As possible. It is just is a leap to imagine one s self a Sultan As a grand vizier. T for several years however after the a Junior Hobby had opened his office he Chap i. In one of the rectilinear streets of a City famous for the straight Forward habits ils population there lived manufacturer of carpet Hose name entertained the idea that the condition i r t i 1 a _ i i Michael Hobbs a person of much , and in most particulars a of a Young limb of the jaw is a Condi Tion of More Honor than profit. His Good subject to some weak we need the Merriu and the Nisi is which As we shall presently see there a considerable drawback on his worldly Prosperity. Or. Hobbs was ambitious to raise himself in the world had been the Money for hoarding apparel and rent was disbursed by the old Man with a most willing heart. That moment which should Hail him As the father or ruling motive of his life but at the an m. C., a Secretary of slate or a of forty five he began to despair resident would imply repay him for every sacrifice. At length the senior conceived tiie idea that the time had arrived when his son should begin to Fig ure in politics and accordingly advised him to commence the study of stump of in his own person and determined to effect his object by proxy. The plan he struck out was to ret married to have a son and one Only to make that son a Prodigy and to his own disappointments with oratory us. Was me guru Man s the advancement of his representative consternation when Isaac modestly in to the highest dignities in the nation. Timoted that he had no Talent for Public this scheme you will admit was speaking most excellent and the first part of it found quite practicable and Cove if our Young lawyer was insensible to the charms of glory As his poor la ther suspected he was not insensible to the charms of a certain miss Harriet Pele the daughter of a flourishing Baker who resided and kept his shop exactly opposite or. Hobbs office. When a Young Man is expat rating on such a dry subject As Law there is something particularly perilous in the proximity of a fascinating Young lady. It was a Good idea of Demosthenes to retire to a Cave on the Shore when he prosecuted his studies he knew the expediency of avoiding All of Inte rest Liat might draw of his attention. Or. Hobb.-, or. Was not willing to make a similar sacrifice. He would not have missed the satisfaction of gazing on Harriet Pele if by Means of such sell denial he could have mailed the reputation of Demosthenes. It is pro Bable however the athenian never met with As pretty a girl As Harriet or he might have been As Little celebrated As Isiac Newton Hobbs. By Means of a deep Laid scheme Viz. Crossing the Street three times a Day Purchase Ginger nuts at the Baker s had established a speaking acquaintance to miss Pele who attended to he Calls of in Slomers. The Conci Saviou which com Ronly passed Between the Young people May be imagined to be As Sweet and As spicy a the Arti Cle of confectionary served to introduce it and the that in a very Short tune acknowledge ments of Lovo and Vous of co Suncy were reciprocated. Or. Pele Haniel s father had observed the growing intimacy Between Hii daughter and his Legal neighbor but any occasional warmth he observed in the Maiden s deportment he attributed to an Excel Lent tact of hers for drawing custom. Had he suspected that a genuine love Alfair the tapis it is possible that his indignant feelings might have Over balanced the pleasure of Selling or. Hobbs nine Cenis Worth of Gingerbread per diem and in that , Isaac would have been forbidden the premises. Or. Pele had a surprising prejudice against Young of whom in the mass he spoke As Idle worthless and poverty stricken objects declaring often to poor Harriet s Goral discomfiture that he would unite his daughter to a Boot Black than to one of the tyros of jurisprudence. Or. R. Did not use those very some thing to the same purpose. Of. But what was the Good Man s Orient. Or. Hobbs got married he Chap. Ii. O this communication from the Young a hitherto been a Bachelor a suit lawyer was the first Damper on the a time his wife bore him a son. Thus ther s Hopes. Michael knew the value every thing went on smoothly and of eloquence and would not permit inured Well Jor the final Success of the himself to doubt that his son possessed had Fate so ordered it that that essential Quality. Persuading him fruits of his wedded love had Elf that too much diffidence a very proved a daughter the ardor of his sex. Favourable symptom originated the p Choos might have been somewhat startling declaration he had heard he but m the birth of a son a endeavoured to rally the youth and in or ring to his previous courage him to attempt speaking at up a presage of every thing Lucky Blic meetings promising him that on id a Lhatt trial he should find it than u or Nim to do was to Mould that son he expected cd Fig 1 Lac up Ter to the truth said fixed on in his own mind and Isaac i am fully convinced that a dark r Effort on the Ture never intended me for an orator a m w0uld do al1 the or any thing of the kind. I or. Mobbs was one of those per cannot utter half a dozen words in the ind Thal name of an court room without being laughed at for not Grcar and i feel that i shall never do any bet old Farl Hebrance the Ter. As a lawyer i must stand the Low the est among you made me we my Eliud with the imposing u a Weaver or a tailor i might have been Chap. Iii. Whilst these matters Vivere in pro Gress or. Michael Hobbs in assuming the responsibility of several considerable debts contracted by his son in the Purchase of books clothes 4-c., had involved Hil self in much pecuniary trouble and soon saw his household furniture looms and every thing else swept away by his creditors and landlord fax Thor claims coming against him he was committed to the debtors apart ment of the county prison. But All these afflictions and fortifications were trifles with old Michael he had not a sigh of regret a groan of anguish to bestow on any subject but the sad Dis appointment he had received in the prospects of his son. The same tem pest of misfortune which stripped the elder Hobbs of All his earthly posses and consigned him to a of Mcgeen took effect on Isaac himself. The lat Ter was ejected from Hii office in Conse Quence of arrearage of rent unpaid his personal properly was seized by the Legal cormorants and with a heavy heart and a Light pocket he crossed Over to or. Pele s to Purchase his final Irea of Ginger nuts and to by 63 he thought a last Adieu to the Erv Hanting Little Harriet. After much sorrowful Dii Cour a and Many promises and protestations har Riet with faltering Ted to Young Hobbs a piece of int calf gence which produced a wonderfully renovating effect on his spirits. There was one she said on which father had promised his consent to their Union but she could scarcely speak for modest condition was one which she could expect her dear Isaac to comply with. No she would not mention it to him it was asking 1oo Jerreat a sacrifice it would be cruel to propose Here Isaac volunteered something like an oath that be the condition what it might he would embrace it with As much rapture w Hile he paused for a smile the Glass door Between the shop and the Back parlor slowly opened and or. Peddle with an awful dignity of appeared before them. The fond pair stood with downcast looks and palpitating hearts before he disposer of their destinies. A dead silence prevailed for some minutes when venturing to raise their eyes to lie countenance of or. They recognised a most Rii Bline expression of Benevolence and compas Sion As he commenced speaking As Fol lows Youil Man i find my daughter likes you and you like her. That s very reasonable. Your father crime in Here the other evening and hopi Ruht some Small i be Lieve Harriet did you show or Isaac Hobbs those improved ones of my own invention there Isaac hastened to say that he had Al ready purchased some and exhibited a handful by Way of confirmation. Very resumed or. Pele will find Thorn capital. I studied the composition of them Day and night for More than a fortnight that s very it s my business. Well your father came in Here the o ther evening he an l i have some acquaint he seemed to he Down hearted and i recommended him few of them very Ginger nuts a they Are first rate for raising the spirits. So when he jihad tasted a few of them and Reco Vered the use of his speech he says son of mine or. Pele will bring my Gray hairs with sorrow to the grave and i wish says that he hid never been born it s very for you to say so says i considering that you Are his father but what has turned up turned he and seemed very angry Why he s turned up a fool that s All though his school ing Cost me More than eight Hundred dollars. He s no More ambition than my old boots Well i thought to my s reasonable ten to one but it turns out that the Young Mari has More sense than the old one that s reasonable. I thought this hut i said nothing. Now what i am going to say to you is that i you will give up the Law and Lake to the baking business i will give you my daughter in wed lock and teach you the Trade in the bargain. Will will exclaimed Isaac enthusiastically a indeed and thank Yon for the offer. Here s my Black he continued stripping off he garment the Only coat i have take it Burn it drown it Cut it up for carpet rags am done with Black Coats and Black Stone no soothingly remarked or. Pele the coat fits you Well Wear it Wear it out in the service of a better Trade than that you have been follow ing Wear it by All Means be a Triumph a trophy As the novel Hoofe Calls it of Victory it we regained new profession Over your old one. That very evening did or. Isaac Newton Hobbs who had been Discar ded for want of funds from his Board take up his new residence in the family of or. Pele. How much thought the youth to make bread As a Baker than to take it out of the Mouth of widows and orphans As a before the expiration of a week Isaac had Learned enough of his new vocation to be useful to his father in Law for the first time in his life he Felt that inexpressible satisfaction which must reside in the bosom of every Man of spirit when he can de Pend on his own exertions when he finds himself released from the humiliating and soul harrowing necessity of asking or excepting favors. Two months were to elapse before the arrival of that Day of perfect facility fixed on by or. Pele a a wedding of Isaac and Harriet. In the interim the thoughts of our Young gentleman dwelt on the situation of his unhappy Parent who still remained in prison and refused to be comforted. The Day after the business and matrimonial had been effected Between Isaac and or. Pele old Hebbs was silting in his cell in a state of gloomy when he observed through the grating in the door some person who when the face wis he took to be his son but when the individual turned his Back to speak to the jailor Michael was con founded by the appearance of his Cress. He was scarcely less perplexed when the door was unlocked and the visitor admitted. Can it i see he has gone crazy. Poor unfortunate boy where have you in the meal he Well no is enough to Madden a spin in win Chad a hit and better that on were both buried in one Isaac with s cheerful countenance communicate the intelligence that by the kind assistance of or. Pele had Bue i enabled to discharge All pecuniary obligations to obtain his father s liberation and even to redeem the household goo is implements of Trade old Hobbs heard him with Little appearance of satisfaction. And Why this said he glancing at Isaac s apparel. Appearances seemed indeed to re quire some explanation. Isaac s Black suit was powdered profusely with the dust of the bake House baking him an exact representation of the lawyer Deli Vered from the sack in the farce of no Ifo i am a lawyer no said the Young Man resolutely i have embarked in the baking business under tuition of or. the declaration was to horrible to he withstood by old Hobbs he sat with petrified aspect glaring Al his son for several i nips. Isaac proceeded to justify the decisive he had taken remarking that by his change of Voca Tion he had been enabled to Raie Ahe Necess Ary funds for the liberation of his father and the redemption of his goods. And do you not exclaimed the old Man that i would have rather have lain in this jail to inc of my never to look on the Light of Day or to breathe the pure air of than to hear you acknowledge yourself such a base minded i have done with you. Say no a word by heaven the sight of Youj is torment leave me leave me instant observing the old Man s excitement was very great the son thought it most prudent to retire and to wait for a Calm or moment when he hoped to convince his father that the Couise he had taken was All Foi the belter. Soon after Isaac s departure ills announced to old Hobbs that he was no Longor a i am As Well Here As any where said Michael doggedly. Am really very Soi observed the Man of keys that we Are not Able to accommodate you any longer. You Are aware that our rules makes the thing impossible otherwise la whole no. 155. Him for he had the smiles of har Riet and the encouraging exhortations of or. Puddle. The Good Baker often a sized on the Legal suit . The Black Coit and pantaloons which he had persuaded Isaac to convert into a common working and satisfaction. It seems to me said or. P., i when i look at that coat and see How it begins to change color for it was Black Oice and now it is almost White seems to me that Good principles Are getting the upper hand of bad ones. That b reasonable. White i have read it somewhere is the Emblem of inno Cence and Black presents All sorts of Vil any and Rasca Lity. That s very reasonable. It has struck me Ibal by the time that coat turns completely White which it will do when the flour Jisela incorporated with the Grain of it then All the lawyer will be worked out of you and you will be honest a fellow As one would wish to meet with. Don t spare cont on no consideration make it pay for tiie mischief it might have done. A a very thus encouraged by the amiable family in which he lived Isaac found the two months which were to precede his nuptials not very and when the specified Lime the wedding solemnities were performed with a Good Deal of taste and elegance there no Scarcity cake for or. Pele him self was expert in preparing confection and his Gingerbread enjoyed an unrivalled reputation throughout tie City. I from that period Fortune smiled All the worldly affairs of Isaac Newton Hobbs. The of his father and Mother sub sided and parental once More had the Ascendancy. Or. Pele took Isaac into and the firm of Pele 4. Hobbs did an astonishing business in less than five years Isaac was a Man of wealth and influence. He became celebrated for his Public spirit was uni for his integrity and generally Leio de for his Benevolence and urbanity. I consequence of ibis favourable on the Public mind he was nominated to Congress and elected by a Large majority. On going to pa5 his respects to his parents the morning after the election Isaac was received by the venerable pair with every Mark of contrition they Tackno w edged i her error in condemn ing Nis abandonment of the pro Fessio i and admitted a sad and he Mili uling admission for that their son had thought and acted More wisely than themselves. Impossible he continued in a tone of great Sua Vicy i should be Happy to entertain you for a whole life time and i assure you it will afford me infinite pleasure to receive again when i am authorized and empowered to do so saying the jailor who was a perfect Model of Courtesy handed or. Hobbs out of the apartment conducted him Ohio Una the various passages and finally dismissed him from the outer Gates of the Michael proceeded to Pace of residence where he found one sympathizing Friend in his wife and he ancient couple talked and wept Over he wreck of their Long cherished expectations. Chap. In. I wish most devotedly that half our Junior professors of Law could have contemplated the comforts and enjoyments of Isaac s present situation and contras Ted that situation with the one he Abon done if most of them with such an example before them would hesitate to apprentice themselves to useful trades then i must remark that most Young lawyers have Jess intelligence and. Sound judgement that is usually accredited to them. The Only drawback on Young Hobbs was the displeasure of his parents for both the old people continued irreconcilable.
