helped me pay two debts hat have oppressed me very
much. 1 cannot tell you -what a sense of freedom l
feci. Yes, I paid Tenley last week the one hundred
dollars, and thi3 morning the thirty. I an? free from
him entirely. And then this morning, too, as I was
going down to Barker's shop to pay him the remain
ing twenty that 1 have owed him so long, sometning,
I hardly know what, prompted me to call at Merri-
neia s. lhe nrst words 1 heard spoken were,
shall give fifteen dollars at the barn, or seventeen
delivered at mv stable, in Exeter." I found it was
a man buying hay. I entered into conversation with
hira, and before I came home had bargained to sell
him on the mow, one hundred and five dollars worth
of hay. lie is to take it away immediately, and paid
me for it on the spot. I laid the twenty dollars with
the one hundred and live, and then hunted out a ten
which I had laid by for a coat, making one hundred
ana thirty-iive in all just the sum I owed John
Dayton. I turned about, and on my way home called
at hU office, and delivered it. So, since last Friday,
T have brought my indebtedness down from five hun
dred and fifty, to two hundred and eighty-five dollars."
"Why, husband," exclaimed Mrs. Washburn,
joyfully, that ought to encourage you ! You have,
ure, reason to he thankful," and she looked as if
she, at least, if nobody else, could say on that Thanks
giving day, Praise the Lord, O, my soul, for all his
benefits.' 4 But I do not understand, Wilton, how
I have helped you so much as you have given me
Why, Mary, darling, you helped me by your
firm, determinate resolution your contriving, your
making do this, and doing without that. You have
helped me by encouraging me, and luring me on to
trust in rroidencc, and to 'labor and to pray'
when I was half despairing nryself. It always helps
me to hear you say, ' Find what your duty is, and
Providence will do the rest.' It encourages me to
work, and also to spare, when I am feeling as if I
could not go any farther. Why, I can't tell you
exactly what the help is, always, but I wish every
hard-working man had as much to strengthen and
encourage hiin as I in your dear mother, Bessie"
and lie quickly turned upon the rosy pet at her
mother's side. What was it? Let us hear it 1
saw something in that smile what was it?"
Bessie raised her blue eyes to her mother's crim
soning face, and then smiling back at her father,
"I was thinking, papa, of mv morning text."
"Well, and what was it, birdie?"
"' Her children arise and call her blessed; her
husband, also, and lie pruiscth he.r'"
There was silence for a moment, and the clatter of
knives and forks almost ceased, as all eyes involun
tarily turned to the mother whose praise had been
00 sweetly spoken ; but she had eyes for none. She
evidently heard, but she was deep in the mysteries of
a- "wishbone" which lay on her plate, and for which
little Bessie seemed waiting. Mr. W. added, under
breath, and apparently wholly unconscious that
anyone heard him, "'The heart of her husband
doth safely trust in her.' "
Mrs. W. did not venture airything more relating to
her husband's aifairs, and she locked gratefully at
Jenny, who next broke silence with another subject.
"Papa, I wish you could have seen how happy
they are to-day at Mrs. Weaver's. They did not say
much, but I could see that their hearts were running
over with thankfulness. Sarah was just putting the
last dish on the table, and Nellie was jumping in and
out of a chair, all ready and waiting for dinner.
They both came and caught hold of my hands, and
kissed me without saying a word. Then Mrs. Weav
er called me into her good, motherly arms and,
mamma, she was at work upon some of that very
flannel that you sent her, so I know she needed it
very much, or she wouldn't have cut it out so soon.
Q, mamma ! I am so glad, so happy !"
" Why, Jenny, it seems as if you are just learning
how to be thankful. Did you know before what it
" No, mamma, nothing at all, but I know now,
and I shall always remember, I think. It seems as
if everything conspires, to-day, to make me thankful
"And I should think mamma was happy too, only
the tears come," said little Bessie. " Mamma, what
makes you almost cry?"
At night, when they were alone, and recapitulating
the day, and the week, and the year, Mrs. W. said to
her husband :
" Wilton, this has been our happiest Thanksgiving.
And yet the cause has been, seemingly, in little
things. The lifting of those two debts has given me
new life, new energy, and I know it has you. Then
our children have been made happy in the encourage
ment of their little, generous, loving impulses. We
are blessed in our children, and happy in each other,
and we have now new strength to begin another
year's labor with. How much to be thankful for !"
" It is true, Mary, what you have often quoted to
me: 'God helps those who help themselves,' and
1 believe we are finding it so. Jenny and Clare have
found, too, that it is ' more blessed to give than to
receive.' I have not heard Jenny once speak of her
own new things, while she is full of delight at having
been instrumental in ministering to Mrs. Weaver's
"Another year, Wilton, will ioy all our debts;
will it not?"
" Yes, if nothing happens that we cannot now see.
I have even been contriving .a way to-day, perhaps,
to pay another fifty. I believe I shall be able to pay
all before next year at this time; in six months, I
hope; and then, Mary darling, we'll have another
Reader, this is a sketch "without a moral," but
perhaps some good promptings may be gleaned from
it. If so. the actors will not have lived in vain.
!nt err in;; recoveries of Modern Astronomy.
Some of the more striking discoveries of modern as
tronomy, not generally found in school books on the
subject, briefly stated, will doubtless prove interesting
to our younger readers, and may induce others to
pursue the fasematiug study.
Comets. The great comet which appeared in 1843,
near the close of winter, which many of our readers
will remember by its immense tail projecting upwards
from the western horizon nearly half way to the
zenith, was found by astronomers to have a tail over
one hundred millions of miles in length, or more than
long enough to reach from here to the sun. When
first seen its length was only thirty-five millions of
miles, and it gradually and rapidly increased as it
approached the sun. It was remarkable, also for
having passed very near the sun's surface in its move
ment around that great luminary, being within one
tenth part of its diameter, and almost grazing it. So
jrreat was its velocity as it plunged towards the sun,
that it whirled around it in about two hours and a
half. Its orbit as it passed oil was so nearly in a
straight lint?, that Prof. Hubbard of the Washington
observatory thought its probable orbit an eclipse of
over oOO years. So we shall not see it again very
Frightened at Comets. Many have supposed that
there was great danger of a comet at some time or
other striking the earth, and destroying it, or pro
ducing "the end of the world." Such an accident
as striking a comet, however would not probably hurt
us any. Both the bodies and tails of comets are ex
ceedingly light and ethereal. Stars have been seen
directly through the heads of comets. The faintest,
fleecy cloud appears incomparably more dense. Com
ets have been thrown entirely out of their course by
the attraction of small planets, without producing the
slightest disturbance in the course of the latter. The
probability is, therefore, that if the earth should pass
directly through a comet, we should not know it.
A great comet expected soon. In the year 075, a
great comet appeared. In 12G4, or i8'J years after
wards, appeared one of the most splendid comets men
tioned in history. Its tail stretched from the eastern
horizon past the mid-heaven. Of course, all super
stitious Europe was terribly frightened at it. In
1556 or 292 years later, another splendid comet made
its appearance. Its head was nearly equal in size to
half a moon, its tail short and unsteady. These
three are supposed by many astronomers to be one
and the ame, and from the computation of its orbit,
i- Tr..iw ennnosed it would appear again in 292
vear or in 18 48. But before the time named for its
appearance, astronomers discovered by calculations
!pp. " c. ' . nnn,,,vnnr,fi had been expedited several
lea by LSZus of the planets, and it, real period
for ? turn was therefore greater than had been as-
signed it. They think, therefore, that it will again
be seen between the years 1858 and 1800; the early
observations from which these calculations were made,
having been much less accurate than they now are.
The Asteroids. It is a singular circumstance that
after the discovery of the four first and originally
known asteroids, forty years should elapse before
another should be found, although the heavens were
constantly raked during that period by the telescopes
of astronomers. But they were becoming more skill
ful, and their instruments better, and from 1845 to
1855, thirty-six more of the little planets were dis
covered, making forty in all. Only one, Vesta, is
visible to the naked eye. The diameter of none ex
ceeds two hundred miles. It would require four hun
dred as large as the largest to lorm a planet one
fourth the size of the earth. The mass of the smaller
ones is so small and the attraction which they have
consequently for bodies on their surface so weak, that
if a full grown and even pretty fleshy Yankee were
placed upon one of them, he could leap, with moder
ate exertion, to a height equal to one of our tallest
pine trees or steeples, and come down again as softly
as a bird on a feather bed. Some have feared that
among so many asteroids, some might strike each
other, but none of their orbits are found to intersect,
and there can be therefore no danger.
Distance of the Fixed Stars. Astronomers have
long since tried to discover the distance of the fixed
stars. That this remoteness was immense, was early
known. We will brielly describe their attempts. If
we should sec a very distant peak of a mountain, we
will suppose due west, and should find after traveling
ii mile to the north, that it appeared still due west,
we should know that its distance from us must be
very great. Nearer objects would alter their course
from us, and those only a mile to the west, would be
come exactly south-west. If the mountain were a
hundred miles from us, its position would be changed
a little, which by accurate measurement with a
proper instrument would be about two-thirds of one
degree. The more remote the object, the less its po
sition appears changed. The distance of the nearer
planets may be thus determined, with the assistance
oi powerful telescopes used at the same time on re
mote parts of the earth.
The orbit of the earth, is 24,000 times as great as
the diameter of the earth itself. The earth, when it
has passed the breadth of its orbit, is 190 millions
miles from its plane on the opposite side. None but
objects the size of worlds can be even seen so far.
One would therefore naturally suppose, that the fixed
stars seen from these two points, 190 million miles
asunder, would appears in quite different positions.
But no difference whatever can be perceived. Even
by means of the most powerful telescopes, the slight
est change in position ould not be determined, al
though they were capable of detecting a difference
only one three-thousandth part of a single degree.
Nothing satisfactory was determined until 1837, when
another way of measuring was adopted. Two stars,
apparently very near together, were selected. Their
apparent distance asunder was then measured by
means of a powerful telescope connected with a most
perfect micrometer. Six months afterwards, their
distance from each other was measured again. If one
star was really much beyond the other, this mode
would be likely to show a slight difference. With a
few stars, this was found actually to be the case.
Some were found to change their apparent position
on opposite sides of the earth's immense orbit, the
difference amounting to one six-thousandth part of a
degree with others, it was only one ten-thousandth,
or one twenty-thousandth part. Dy accurate calcula
tion, the distance was determined. The following are
some of the results:
The nearest fixed star determined, is a very bright
star (quite as bright as Sirius) in the Southern hem
isphere, known as Alpha Centauri, not seen here at
the north. Light, which flies 190 thousand miles per
second, would be more than three years coming from
it. Sirius (or the dog star) is about three times as
remote, or sixty millions of millions of miles, and its
light would be ten years reaching us. The North
star is ten times as far as the first named, and its
light is thirty years traveling to us; so that, if it were
destroyed to-day, it would continue to guide the wan
derer for thirty years to come.
A railway train, so swift as to travel from New
York to St. Louis in a day, would be 500 years tra
versing the breadth of the earth's orbit; and be six
millions of years reaching the nearest fixed star, and
sixty millions of years reaching the North star. Had
such a train left the earth in the days of Adam, and
been flying on ever since, it would now have passed
over just one ten-thousandth part of its journey to
the polar star.
Several of the fixed stars are found to have a real
progressive motion through the heavens, and the rate
at r.hich they are thus traveling onward through the
immense regions of space, can be nearly determined.
The one which appears Lo have the most rapid appa
rent motion, is a small star in the leg of the great
bear. Its real velocity is found to be so enormous
that it clears about a million miles every hour, or two
hundred and fifty miles a second. It is not uite so
distant from us as the polar star, yet such is its re
moteness, that with this astonishing velocity, it has
moved only one degree in five hundred years!
The Sun is Moving Onward. The discoveries of
astronomers of late years, have proved that the sun
with all the solar system, is traveling onward through
space, towards the constellation Hercules. Some sup
pose it to be sweeping around in an immense orbit,
and that Pleiades is the grand center. This' is not
certain ; but its progressive motion is demonstrated ;
for the stars on one side of the heavens are slowly
closing, and on the other side separating like an ope
ning vista; while intermediately, they are passing
towards the closing side. This motion is so slow ap
parently, as to be ascertained only by long observe
tion with the most powerful instruments. The veloc
ity of the sun is about twenty thousand miles an
hour, or four hundred times faster than the swiftest
The Size of the Sun. This is not a late discovery,
yet an estimate may assist the imagination. The moon
is two thousand miles in diameter, but is nevertheless
so far off as to appear no larger than a common-sized
cheese its distance being two hundred and forty
thousand miles. The whole breadth of its orbit
around the earth is but one-half the breadth of the
sun's face. A railway train would be six years in
traversing the sun. If the earth were represented by
a ball an inch in diameter, the sun on the samescale,
would be as large as a seven-story brick building. It
is nearly a million miles in diameter, aud yet not
withstanding its dazzling brilliancy if it was seen as
far off as the nearest fixed star, it would be but a
twinkling point, only to be seen in the darkness of
The Milky-Way. This faint cloud is resolved by
powerful telescopes into millions of stars. J. F. Her
shel, with his 20 feet reflector, calculated the number
seen with that, at about five millions, with many so
faint and numerous that he could not count them
while there appeared to be obscure clouds of stars be
yond, that the power of his telescope could not dis
tinguish. When Lord Rosse made his great telescope
(5G ft. long, C ft. diameter, and costing G0,000) he
still found myriads of stars not seen before, while in
the milky-way and in every part of the heavens, there
appeared to be no limit to their bounds.
All the conceptions afforded by these bewildering
f vets, are but of finite objects. Nothing infinite can
ever be comprehended by man. He has never ad
the capacity given him for it. What supreme folly,
therefore, for man to undertake censuring, in a single
instance, the wisdom of the Infinite Mind!
Kind but Simple. Two sailors, one Irish and the
other English, agreed reciprocally to take care of
each other, in case of either being wounded in an ac
tion about to commence. It was not long before the
Englishman's leg was shot off by a cannon ball; and,
on his calling to Paddy to carry him to the doctor.,
according to agreement, the other very readily com
plied; but he had scarcely got his wounded compan
ion on his back, when a second ball struck off the
poor fellow's k2ad. Paddy, who, through the noise
and disturbc nee common in a sea engagement, had
not perceived his friend's last misfortune, continued
to make the best of his way to the surgeon. An offi
cer, observing him with a headless trunk upon his
shoulder, asked where he was going. " To the doc
tor," says Paddy. " The doctor!" says the officer,
why, you blockhead, the man has lost his head."
On hearing this, he flung the body froni his shoulders,
and looking at it very attentively, " Be my sowl,"
says he, " he tould me it wag his leg."

"lTOTICE. Whereas it appears from an examination of
i the papers of Mr. Buxton, ex-captain of the Protectorate
schooner Rob Roy, deceased on board the Caroline Hort, dur
ing the passage of said vessel from Sydney to Tahiti, as well &a
from other particular sources:
1st, That said captain had taken, from the bark Julia Arn,
wrecked at the Scilly Islands, the sum of 310 sovereigns.
2d, That when the Rob Roy was wrecked on the Navigate
Islands, said ltuxton declared that he had not saved more thaii
4'2j sovereigns out 310 formerly taken, of which fact there is
great doubt, since a great uuniler of articles of smaller valufc
" were sarert. - - - -- - - - '
3d, That it is suspected that said Ruxton has embezzled, for
his own protit, a part of the sum saved from the Julia Ann
wrecked a second time with the Rob Roy ;
The " Commandant Particular," Commissioner of II. I. M,.
in the Society Islands, has ordered that an inquest be made by
the Justice of Peace, acting ad interim as Judge of Instruction,
upon the facts above stated.
From said inquest, during which Mr. Charlton, second inj
command of the Rob Roy, did not appear, by reason of absence
neither the crew, and whose testimony was very important, it
That said Ruxton made, at Sydney, excessive expenses, out
of proportion with his situation and with what he was known to
possess when he left Tahiti.
That, in answer to one of the witnesses inquiring from him
how he was able to spend so freely, be declared that h had ro
ceived money as assistance from a Scotch society named
That, after the demise of said Ruxton, GO sovereigns and four
dollars, as well as some poods and jewelry, were found in his
possession, the origin of which cannot be explained.
In consequence, the Commissioner of II. I. M. has decided
that the present abstract should be published in the official
newspaper, .;o that all interested parties may present their
claims ujii the succession of said Ruxton, delivered into tho
hands of the British Consul, who will preserve it duriqcue year
from this date.
