I be been a Good Deal worried to Day about a Bill that i had no idea would be half As Large As it is. It was sent in this 44 whose Bill is asked or. Lane with an apparent change of feeling. Or. Mercer s Bill for 411 did t know there was a Bill o yes. Don t you remember that you told me to get whatever the family wanted from 141 did t mean to run up a Bill though 1 44 it was so understood by me. But that makes Little difference. If the Money had been paid Down the Cash would not be on hand How much is the Bill 1" most afraid to 44 How much v one Hundred and thirty Why Anna bless my heart How Iii the world could you run up a Bill like that j 1 41 i be bought very Little for replied the rebuked wife in a subdued and choking voice. Nearly All has been used for you and Llie a Hundred and thirty dollars Ion dear dear ejaculated or. Lino throwing his Cigar into the grate and beginning to Rock him self violently. So much of my six Hundred Dol Lars profit scattered to the winds i wonder How Many More Bills you will have coming this was downright cruel und so mrs. Lane Felt it. She did not however punish him for the ungenerous remark with tear.--, for she was not a woman disposed on All occasions to give Way to this weakness. Her imply was none that the wants of the family Timve not required to be but i wished you to pay Cash Anna. You know that last january when we were almost smothered with Bills from All quarters we made a Resolution to pay Cash for everything during the coming year and i thought this had been i know very Well that such a thing was talked replied mrs. Lane and i be Lieve acted upon for a time. And i also know that you yourself told me to open an account at Mercer a in the Spring when t asked yer for Money to Purchase summer clothing for the 11 did t mean to go beyond said or. Lane modifying his tone. But what other Bills Are there v there is a Bill at Cheeseman s for groceries that can t be much for i have bought Al most everything in 41 no i Don t suppose it will amount to any thing of any Oiler no none except the bread i thought you paid Cash for bread 1" we never did that or. Lane. The Baker serves us daily marking of bib tally Slick the number of loaves and once in three or six months sends in his Bill when it is of How Long has his Bill been running .7" six months i and will be forty or fifty 4 not half of replied mrs. Lane. Well what else is nothing More i i Hope not. Here Are two Hundred dollars Cut off at a blow from the supposed profits of the year. Confound these Bills i wish there was no such thing As or. Lane was As a matter of course unhappy from that moment. Had these Bills not existed and the surplus of the year shown the pleasant aggregate of four Hundred dollars he wed wild have been quite As Happy As when he figured it he had an the i5s was in Pas sed gloomily enough. When or. Lane retired to bed he could not sleep for thinking of the dry goods grocery and bread Bills. While he up at six Hundred. But in imagination been better off by two Hundred dollars t truth now discovered him to be and Hel Felt As real. The remainder of the Eveni the next Billet was opened with a More Nerv Ous state of mind. As he broke the Seal and displaced the envelope another narrow piece of paper folded Over from the ends in three sections dropped upon the desk. It was the bread Bill for six months and called for forty six Dol Lars and ten cents. Is it possible too too bad too bad i had no idea of thus the unhappy Man expressed his feelings. While yet holding this Bill in his hand a lad entered the store and coming Back to the desk where he sat politely handed him an ominous piece of paper and retired. He opened it and read or. Archibald of sic. The particulars were an air tight stove at twelve dollars a cooking stove at thirty and various other mailers of Russia pipe fire boards etc., in All amounting to fifty five though the genial heat from the air tight stove had comforted or. Lane every evening since it come Home and he had enjoyed the improved cooking of the new addition to the Kitchen department he had entirely forgotten that the Bill for these increased advantages had never been settled. He exclaimed half aloud and striking the desk As he spoke. How came i to forget that Bill i meant to have paid it when the articles came Home and told Jenkins to Send it soon after this or. Lane s Young Man came in from the Post-office1 there were three letters each with the City Post Mark and each with a Bill enclosed. One the tailor s Bill called for forty eight dollars another was from a Hatter and demanded five and the third came from a jobbing Carpenter who had been called in at sundry times to mend and make and asked for the sum of Twenty three dollars ninety two cents. Or. Lane read them Over and then placed them under a paper weight on his desk uttering at the Sama time a Long drawn the morning paper was yet unread. It Lay i on the Deak beside or. Lane and from habit More than from any its contents he opened it and commenced finding. An occurrence of some interest had taken place in a neighbouring City and he was in the midst of a narrative of the event and much interested in it when he started and turned quickly at the sound of near him. A Man had entered and was standing at his Elbow. Good morning or. Said the Man. Good morning returned or. Lane. Can 1 do anything for you he added in a tone of affected cheerfulness. Not said the Isiler removing his hat Asha spoke and talking therefrom a Small package of papers which he commenced turn ing Over. You Havn t a Bill against me or. Lane what do you Call that replied the Man As he Drew a slip of paper from the package in his hand and presented it. One barrel of flour five hams a Bushel of Corn meal and a sack of Salt. Bless me1 did t i pay for these at the time the Man smiled and Shook his head Why it s nine months since i made the Purchase and i m certain i told you to Send in the Bill i never like Small matters of this kind to it s been overlooked. But the Money will be just was the pleasant answer. With As Good a Grace As it was possible for him to assume or. Lane turned to his desk and drawing Forth his pocket Book counted out thirteen dollars saying As he did so the next time 1 make to Bill at your store i wish you to Send it in before the first of i won t was Good hum redly re plied As the Man bowed and withdrew. The saw the familiar face of an old negro who had polished his boots for the last half dozen years. He knew his errand and Felt that this was like adding insult to injury. Peter came shuffling no toward the desk at. Which Lane remained seated with contracted brows revealing at each step More and More of his polished Ivory. Little Bill Massa said the negro producing As he spoke a Dingy piece of paper. This was too Cipuch. It was an ordeal what overtired patience could7 Bear. Clear you Black exclaimed the sufferer in a passionate voice. If you say Bill to me i la Cut your ears such on unexpected reception from Massa who had been looked upon by Peter As one of the most amiable men in the world completely astounded the poor negro and he beat a Hasty Retreat glancing Back every now and then to see if an in stand or paper weight were not advancing in the direction of his head with something like lightning Speed. To sudden storms there always follows o deep Calm. By the time Peter had vanished through the door retiring at a velocity which could not have been greatly increased had seven devils been at his heels or. Lane s mind was trem bling Back from its state of uncontrollable excitement. Laying his Fuce Down upon the desk he sighed heavily. Mortification took the place of irritation and anger against others was succeeded by anger against himself. 4 a was breathed Forth last and raising himself up he gathered the Bills that were spread out before him and Trust ing them in the desk turned the key with of firm hand making the lock Click As the Bolt sprang to its place. When or Lane went Home that evening his mind was Calm. He had passed through a Day if sad trial and disappointment but he knew worst and was prepared for it. When the milk Bill Milliner s and Mantua maker s Bills arid sundry other Little Bills were Laid before Liiri he exhibited no emotion. They were to Lis feelings like a gentle Breeze after a violent tempest. Bat on one thing he was resolved and that was to pay Cash in future for every thing. 14 there must be no january Bills next said he to his family after lie had looked at the sum to pay Long enough to be nolo to speak on he subject without visible emotion. Let Cash in paid fur everything in the time . If the if Ioney in t in hand when the want presents itself let the want thu was a Good Resolution. But did or. Lane and his family abide by it 1 next Janu Ary will lady s Book. Thus Lay awake memory assisted him to the pleasure was All on his Side and he could afford j in the world. It is time for i will soon in care and less Able to give Active Atten knowledge of two or three other Little matters of the same kind. There was an unsettled tailor s Bill that might take Twenty five or thirty dollars to balance and the Boot maker had something against him. Ten bushels of potatoes and three barrels of apples that he had ordered sent Home in october were yet to be paid for. At least fifty dollars More of his year s profit vanished. At last or Lane fell asleep and dreamed All night of Bills that came almost in a Shower around him. On new year morning he sat silent and Moody at the breakfast table eating but Little and looking no one in the face. All were oppressed by Bis state of mint though none but his wife knew its nature and the cause from which it was produced. It was Early when or. Lane went to his place of business on the morning of the first of january not so Early however but that one or two persons had preceded him and left behind them visible tokens of the fact. On his desk were a couple of sealed notes. He opened them with a vague presentiment of something disagreeable and he was not disappointed. The first contained a narrow slip of paper with a printed head and certain written characters and figures below which plainly enough expressed the fact that he was indebted to a certain dealer in groceries in the sum of seventy six dollars. Of dear was the mental examination of pain that followed the perusal of this that a Little Peice of paper three or Jour inches wide and six inches Long should have such Power Over the feelings of a Man to be in a Good humor. I Hope that s the paid or. Lane As he wound the string of his great pocket Book around and around its distended sides and then Laid it carefully Back in his desk. He was in error. Ere the Day passed his Boot maker sent in his Bill amounting to fifteen dollars and from a ladies shoe maker came a like Token footed up with a sum of Twenty dollars an upholsterer had been called upon to Mike a climber , and do sundry Little matter s about the House during the year and he called for eight dollars and thirty four cents. Then the jobbing Cabinet maker Hail his account to Settle with or. Lane for sundry applications of his Art to broken backed chairs rickety tables Loose veneering slc., for All of which he wanted sixteen dollars. Thus it went on hour after hour until toward evening. The Glazier called for two dollars and half the Tinner presented a Bill for five dollars and the Gas fitter for by this time human patience at least so far As or. Lane was concerned bad become Well nigh exhausted. He Felt like making a very application of his foot to any Man or Lay who i Ort again invade his premises with a he was sitting at his desk in this not very Ami Able mood with the Bills he had received since morning spread out before him and a slip-0 paper in his hand the whole of the sums they called for amounting to four Hundred Aud sixty nine dollars and eighty six cents had been added up when he heard the door open and shut. Turning with a nervous Start he the testimony of a deist to the Bible. We always recur with great Delight to the testimony of a deist. Who after publicly Labouring to disprove to bring scripture in contempt As a forgery was found instructing his child in the new testament. When taxed with the flagrant inconsistency his Only reply was that it was Only necessary to teach the child morality and nowhere was there to be found such morality As in the Bible we thank the deist for the confession. Whatever our scorn of the Man whole wild be guilty of so foul dishonesty seeking to Streep from the Earth a volume to which All the while he recurred for the principles of education we thank him for his testimony that the morality of scripture is a morality not elsewhere to be that if there were no Bible there would be comparatively no source of instruction in duties and Vir tues whose neglect and decline would dislocate the happiness of human society. If it be cer on the confession of its that a pure and is to be gathered Only from the pages of the Bible what an advantage is there in the Possession of the scrip lures even if death were the termination of human existence. Take away the Bible from the nation so that there should no longer be the exhibition and inculcation of its precepts and there would be a gradual Yea and a rapid introduction of false principles and spurious Theo Ries which would pave the Way for a total degeneracy of manners. We should quickly find that honesty and integrity were not held in their former repute but had Given place to fraud and extortion that there was an Universal setting up of the idol of selfishness before which All that is generous and disinterested and Phi Jan be formed to do homage. We should Loose from our institutions All that is glorious in Liberty and from our firesides nil that gives them their the deist was right. We May attempt to Dis prove the divine origin of scripture and nevertheless we must keep the volume As a Lext Book of morality if indeed we do not wish the banishment of All that is Lovely and sacred from Wiir Homes and the breaking up through the lawlessness of ungoverned the quiet and the Beauty which Are yet around our Farriw Henry Heuitte. Moralist. The conquerer and Printer. When Tamerlane had finished building Hii Pyramid of seventy thousand a kills wis seen standing at the Gate of Damascus glitter ing with steel with on his bhoul1 Der till he might Lead his fierce hosts to new victories and carnage that Pale Looker on might have fancied that nature was in her death throes havoc and despair had taken Possession of the Earth and the Sun of manhood seemed bet Ting a the seat of blood. Yet. It might be on that very gala Day of Tamerlane a Little toy was playing nine pins in the streets of Mentz whose history was More important to them than . The tartar Khan with his shaggy demons of the wilderness passed away like the whirlwind to be forgotten forever that German Artisan has wrought a Bene which is yet immeasurably expanding through All countries and All time. What Are the conquests and expeditions of the whole corporations of captains from Walter the penniless to Napoleon compared with the moveable types of Johannes Faust a Mother s Ivy Lam. A certain lady had a child which she never allowed to be fear of making Hii n sick. And even her has Wajid told her she would spoil the child but All wish n Avail. One Day she head him scream ing in the Garden she ran and ascertained tha cause to be that a servant had refused to give him something he Wanteta. 4i you impertinent said the Mother to the servant hot to give the child what he wanted. By my said the girl he May cry morning and hell not get enraged beyond Bounds by this reply the lady ran for her husband to chastise the saucy servant the husband who was As weak As his wife cried out to the girl you insolent creature do you have the. Impudence to disobey your it is True sir i did disobey her. The child has been crying for the Moon which he sees reflected in the foun Tain. I could not give it to him though commanded by the mistress. Perhaps she can do a general laugh ensued in which the lady i despite her anger joined. Twas a Good lesson Tor her. A pleasant Surprise. A Young Man of eighteen or Twenty a Stu Dent in a University took a walk one Day. With a professor who was commonly called the Stu dents Friend such was his kindness to the Young men whom it was his office to instruct r while they were now walking together and the professor was seeking to Lead the Conversa Tion to grave saw a pair of old shoes lying on the path which they supposed belonged to a poor Man who was at work in the Field close by and who had nearly finished his Day s work. The Young student turned to the professor saying let us play the Man a trick we will hide his shoes and conceal ourselves be had those Bushes and watch to see his perplexity when lie cannot find my dear answered the professor we must never amuse ourselves at the expense of the poor. But you Are Rich and you May give yourself a much greater pleasure by Means of this poor Man. Put a Dollar in each shoe and then we will hide the student did so and then placed himself with the professor behind the Bushes hard by through which they could easily watch the la Borer and see whatever wonder or Joy he might express. V the poor Man Coon finished his work and came across the Field to the j path where he had i left his coat and of climes. While he put on the coat he slipped one foot into one of the shoes but feeling something hard he stooped Down and found the Dollar. Astonishment and wonder were seen upon his countenance he gazed upon the Dollar turned it around Neil looked again and again then he looked around on All sides but could see no one. Now he put the Money in his pocket and proceeded to put on the other shoe but How great was his astonishment when he found the other Dollar his feelings Over came him upon his Knees looked up to heaven and uttered Nlou-1 a fervent thanksgiving in which he spoke of his wife sick and helpless and his children without bread whom this timely Bounty from some unknown hand would save from perishing. The Young Man stood there deeply affected and tears filled his eyes said the professor Are you not much better pleased than if you had played your intended trick 1" of Dearest answered the youth you Hare taught me a lesson now that i will never forget.
