It may bear the giaucc of God.

priceless gifts which we pnr.o so little, arc
the minute charities of life. Scarcely they
attract otir notice, yet how barely would
the soul live without tliera I Not nlone by
great dwdi and greater sacrifices aro we
to accomplish good. Tho look that we
wear, tho words which we epeak, modify
tho feeling", the characters, tha eternal
destinies, of those wiih whom we associate.
Maik the power of gcntlo words upon a
J"clof merry may wear tie rough
gnrb of manhood, or she may look thro'
the tendei eyes of a womnn. It matters
not, os she brentes her gentle admonitions,
the hard heart moves with a faster throb,
the soul relents, and the eyes Suffuse with
tears. Those tones, those word?, remind

No one taught him of the Merciful one,
who is such kind father to os all. No voice
culled after him when he entered the road
or sin. lie stood niton the olatena of man
hood, without a friend. And is it not
hard to struggle on in life nutte ? Hard,
to gu?.e into the Toluiituous eyes of Plea
sure, to listen to the voice of the Tempter,
to feel the consuming fires of Passion, ond
then foirako nil for Virtue, when there is
not one to aid ns, not one to commend 1
U, if we remembered o'tencr than we do
the pnlliatitig circomstauces connected with
tho history or the erring, tiovr different
would be our manners ond feelings towards
them ! How gentle we should t-peak to
those who have forsaken their sins I Ilovy
many rclup.e again into evil habits, for tho
want or a tew words or eucourotrement.
Soch aro moibidly sensitive to reproach,
The shadows of their post lives rest upon J
their present, and d.trken their future,
Shall we, the pensioners of Inunite FitT,
refuse our little meed of charity to them,
wliosc past lives, though blacker in tho
eyes of the world, may not be, in (he sight
of the Almighty, than our own f
Let us be gcntlo in our homes, Uao
that bouse be called a home where the voice

ten the accusations and recriminations of

hearts of their children I How ofteu the
bud of truth is crashed forever, iu the heart
of a sensitive child, by the anger of a pas

nature of a proud souled boy, aroused to
bitter defiance by tho tyraunical rule of an
unsympathizing iatucr 1
Ye who wo uki have jour children honor
and lore you when you are old, unrture to

Speak gently to tho aged. YThatcTer
arc tho InGrmities, their circumstances alone
arc sufficient to command our sympathies'.
They stand before us tho lingering jrliea of
a buried generation. Their whitened locks,
their bowed frames, their tottering limbs,
all speak of the grave. Holding the flitter
ing lamp of memory in their bands they
walk mournfully along the shores or the
post; now bowing abovo the graves of
their lost ones, now weeping as tbo ghosts
of early errors, the phantom of early joys,
rise to greet them on every side. In their
breasts the fires of ambition are quenched.
In their souls are heard no longer the jubi
lants of hope. . : . -.
They feel like strangers amid the new
customs and new faces which surround
them. Even their children, now acting
their own part in the theatre of life, do
cot seem liko the littjo ones whom they
once nourished in their bosoms. Many of
the sged are entirely dependent npon ihcra
for every comfort of life which they possess.
The greatest kindness on tho part cf tho
child will uot render such perfectly happy.
Those who for so many years stood at the
head of a household canuot willingly eiuk
into a state of dependenco. They canuot
bear to feci that those whose lives once de
pended upon their care, no longer stand in
need of their services. How are these feel
ings aggravated when tbey are treated with
npirlffi. nnd indifference !
Rut. low. many aged parents foel like

How often are tho counsels of the " old

their ideas ere obsolete, that their plans of

Henry Cecil, 10th Earl of Exeter, with
landed estates to tho yearly value or XiOO,
000, and the palatini residence of Bnrzlcv.
with Us statutes, paintings, and articles of
vertu saw to be worth JCoOO.000, married a
Miss Vernon, from whom, owing to her
violation of the marriage vows, he was di
vorced in 1.91. Almotit heartbroken by
this disgrace and misfortune, ho resolved to
retire from high life, and immediately after
tho divorce, betook himself to a retired vil
lage in Shropshire, named Bolas, about 120
null s from his own beautiful Burgley. Of
that plucc, however, he was not lord then,
nor until the d. ailior his ancle, the 9iu
Earl, iu 1193. But he was heir presump
tive to the title and estates, and his pecu
niary allowance was on a very ample scale,
suited to his future position. At this time,
too, he was only pluin Mr. Ileury Cecil.
At Bolas, he actually became a farm ser
vant to rather a rough diamond, one Thomas
Hoggins, who, besides his firm, had a mill
iu pretty full employ. Cecil's chief work
was in this mill, and he labored like cny
other servant, fairly to earn his wages.-
Port of his business was to leave full bugs
of flour at various farm houses iu the parish,
and to tako back the empty oi.es. He had
frequently to call at tha house of the Rev.
Mr. Dickenson, the clergyman of Bolas,
where, according to the custom of tho time
and place, he wus always invited to rest in
the kitchen, and take " a rang of ale lie
seldom was tempted to euter into conversa
tion, but spoke so well, when he did con
verse, that Mr. Dickenson's household gave
him the name of " Gentleman Harry." It
was not long before this sobriquet, and its
cause, became known to Mr. Dickenson,
who put himself, in the way or meeting this
strange miller's man, aud became so much
iu him that, instead or being asked to rest
aim retresu in the kitchen, " Oentieman
Harry" was regularly invited into the study,
where tho good pastor used to join hlta in
a draught or home brewed sua a pipe of
the JMcotnian weed.
Ere long, Mr. Dickenson, who had freely
lent him various books.liinted his suspicion
that "Gentleman Hurry" bclouged to a
higher position than he tl;cu occupied. This
was confessed, w ith an assurance that there
was no disgrace connected with his incognito,
and a promise to reveal the particulars of
the secret at no distant day.
Thomas Hoggins, the millet', had ono
danghter named Sarah, known far and wide
as tho "Beauty of Bolas." About this
time she was scarcely twenty, and through
the intervention of s raoueyed aunt had re
ceived what wo hate heard described (in
tier-native Shropshire; as a " bettcrmost
educated." That i, sho read and wrote
correctly, had some slight acquaintance with
French, and played tolerably well npon tho
harpsichord. It came to pass that Miss
II. turned a favorably pair of bright blue
eyes upon " GeulK-mau Harry." Alas, for
the romance of the story, his premier jeunesx
was gone for be was in his thirty-eighth
year: It happened triso that he became in
terested in her, sa much so that he called
at the parsonage ono evening to consult
with Mr. Dickenson in a word, to entreat
him to marry them privately; and then,
making a clean breast of it, " Oentieman
Harry" confessed that he was Mr. Henry
Cecil, next heir to tho Earldom and estates
of Exeter. Ho brund over the clergyman
to secrecy, uot allowing him to disclose his
personal secret to Mr. Hoggins, nor even
to the fair Sarah. It was a difficult mat
ter far the clergyman to obtain the miller's
consent to the marriage, which was cele
brated on the 30th or October, 1791. The
happy couple lived upon a small farm during
tbo following two years until Mr. Cecil
casually learned from a Shrewsbury paper
that the death of bis ancle had placed a
coronet upou his brt.w and immenso wealth
at his disposal. - .
Still concealing the secret of his rank
from his wife, Cecil told her that ho had
determined upon a change of residence.
She prepared to accompany him, leaving
her native Bolas with regret, for she had
been happy there, as maid, wife aud mother.
She accompanied her husband, and they
came, at last, to Burgley, the beantj of

she gladly assented to his invitation to
alijrbt and see it. They entered the demesne,
alked op the broad avenue with its double
friDire of stately oaks, went througlt th
garden and conservatories, and anally made
tour of too mansion. At last, returning
down the grand staircase, iuto tho stately
hall, around which were ranged Dgures in
antiqno armor, and fiirnilv portraits, from
the days or Holbeiu ana vaudyite down to
Reynolds, her husband asked her tnw ue
