THE REWARD OF COURTESY.
A few years since, on a radiant spring after
Boon, two man, who from their conversation ap
pored to be foreigners, stopped before the gto of
on of the large wmkshops in Philadelphia fur ihe
manufacture of locomotive engines. Entering a
mall office, the elJer of the two mon inquired of
the superintendent in attendance if be would por-
niil them to inspeot the works.

Mr. Wulf, the elder of the two stranger.

It was not so much the matter as the manner of
Ihe reply, that was offensive to Mr. W. If and hid
companion. It was spoken with a certain official
assumption of superiority, mingled with contempt
for Ihe visitors, indicating a haughty and selfish
temper on the part of the speaker.
''I think we will not trouble you," said Mr.
Wolf, bowing ; and taking bis companion's arm,
they passed out.
"If there is anything I dislike, it is uncivility."

do not blame the man for not wishing to show us

nd interrupted by many heedless visitors, but he
might have dismissed us with courtesy. He
might have snt us awoy better content, with a
gracious refusal than wit.'i an ungracious con
sent." '.Perhaps," said the other stranger, "we shall
have bettor luck here," and they stopped before
another workshop of a similar kind. They were
received by a brisk little man, the head clerk ap
parently, who in reply to their request to be shown
over the establishment, answered, ' Oh, yes 1 come
with me, gentlemen. This way." So saying, he
hurried them along the area strewed with iron
brass, broken and rust heels of iron, fragments of
old boilers aud cylinders, into the main work
shop. Here, without stopping to cxpluio any one thing
he led tho strangers along, with the evident inten
tion of getting rid ol them as soon as possible.
When (bey passed w here the workmen were rivit
ing the external casing of a boiler, the clerk look
ed at bis watch, tapped his foot against an iron
tube, and showed other signs of impatience,
whereupon Mr. Wolf remarked, "We will not de

the surface, it does not come from tbo heart. We
moat look further."
. Tbe strangers walked on for nearly half a mile
in silence, when one of them pointed to an burn
able sign with tbe picture of a locomotive engine
with train of cars underneath. It overtopped a
mall, but more than ten feet in bight gate com
municating with a yard and workshop. ' hook,"

aged man, whose somewhat grimy aspoat and ap

labors between tbe workshop and the counting

DO objection," said Mr. Wulf.
, "It will give me great pleasure to show you all
tbat is to be seen," said the mechanic, with a
pleasing alacrity, ringing a bell, telling a boy who
entered to take obarge of the office.
He then led the way, acd explained to the
strangers the whole process of constructing a lo
comotive engine. He showed them how the va
rious parts of the machinery were manufactured,
and patiently answered all their question. He
told tbem ot an improved mode of tubing boilers,
by which the power of generating steam was in
creased, and showed with what cure he provided for
security from buisting.
Two hours passed rapidly awny. The stran
gers were delighted with tbe intelligence display

THE BATTLE OF BLENHEIM.
It was a tutnmer evening,
Old Kaspar' work was done,
And he before his cottage door
Was sitting in the sun,
And by liiin sportod on the green
His little grandchild Wilheimine.
She saw her brother Potorkin
Roll something large and round,
Which ho beile the rivulet
In ringing there had found;
He Cnmo to nek what he had found,
That was so large, and smooth, and round.
OKI Caspar took it from tbe boy,
Who stood expectant by J

And with a natural sigh,

For there's many hero about;
Ami often when I go to plough,
The ploughshare turns them out I
For many thousand men," e&id be,
"Were slain in that great victory."
"Now tell us what 'twas all about,"
Young Pe'erkin he cries;
While littlo Wilheimine looks np,
With wonder-waiting eyes
"Now tell us all about, the war.
And what :hey kill'd eaoh other for."
"It was the English," Kispar cried,
"Who put the French to rout
But what they kill'd each other for,
I could not well make out.
But every body said," quoth ho,
"Thatt'vtas a famous victory.

MAKING STEEL PENS.
A correspondent of the Tribune recently visited
Birmingham, England, and thus describes the
manufacture of Steel Pons :
Joseph Gillott is celebrated wherever school-
houses are known for bis steel pens, and bis man-
ufictory we next visited. Most American school
boys nro familiar witb that name, and America is
one of his greatest cuilnmeri. The steel comes
mainly from Sheffield, in thin strips of about three
inches width, and is first submitted to a rolling
process to reduce it to tho required thickness for
pens. This is d)ne by boys and men in a sort
of basement where dust and grease seem to be
abundant. The other rooms are eener&llv airv
n j j
ard spacious, and girls and young women the im-
ployecs, numbering about 500 in all. The suc
cessive steps in the manufacture are very interes
ting. One machine and they arc all light in
construction cuts tbe pen from the steel strin.
aDothcr stamps it with the manufacturer's name,
another bends it, another splits the point, and
scores of small, buzzing grindstones, from which,
by contact with the pen streams of sparks are
emitted, are grinding the pens at the point and
along the backs to give them tbe spring which is
necessary. This is considered tbe most important
operation, Ibe one on which the value of the pen
is most depondont. The tempering process comes
next. The pens are placed in small metallio bol
es, and submitted to an intense beat in a great
oven, a glimpse through whose open door reminds
one of the sweat to which Sbidrach and his com
rades were subjected. They come out as mallea
ble as putty. Another application of heat revers
es this state, and makes them too brittle for use,
while a third, applied in a different form, gives
them the temper which tbe buyer finds tbem to
possess. The process of varnishing is tbe onlv
to. which tbey are subjected after being
We were shown machines which combined esv-
eral of the operations I have uamed, but they
have not been found to do the work as well, and
hence they are used but little. Tbe wages of the
operators, of course, vary according to skill, ape
and experience, but averaged, we were told, be
tween eight and twelve shillings (English) per
week. Not a heavy income, when out of this the
expense of living has to be deducted.
Mr. Gillott has been engaged in tbe manufac
ture of pens about twenty years, and the differ
ence in Ihe price at which be first sold tbem and
which they are now afforded is a striking in
stance of the influonce of skill, experience and
machinery and possibly competition also :n
cheapening the necessaries of life. At first tbey
were sold at 4s per gross; now tbe same quan
tity is afforded ai 30 pence.
It is stated that Col. Fromont ba written a
letter, declaring that he is not and will not ba a
Presidential candidate in 1860. He is represen

PASSAGES FROM RECENT DISCOURSES
BY THE REV. HENRY WARD BEECHER.
A man's religious connections should ba a part

off from the horse and lay it aside for a while and
then put it on again when you wish to, but like a
man s lungs whioh you can't take out of tbe man
but bo dies.
True religion takes care not only of a man's
working life, but also of bis leisure and rest. Il
takes care not only of his solemn hours, but of bis
mlrthfulncse. It takes care of the whole man.

even to our amusements, without feeling that ws

There is nothing which hurts the moral tone of
the mind more than doing things which go against
our conscience, even in immaterial matters.
Don't take your Bible and say, "I don't want to
read it, but I suppose I must," nor your hymn
book and say, "I don't wont to sing, but I guess I
had better" don't say, "I don't want to pray,
but I will and keep praying till I do feel like it."
I am in tbe habit of likening the Savior in my
thoughts to some great and noble friend don't
you suppose, if you went to the door of such a
friend and said to him, 'I did not want to see you
a bit to-day, but I was afraid you would feel hurt
it I did not come, and would treat me according
ly,' tbat be would say, "If you don't want to tee
me, I am sure I den't want to see you ;" and do
you suppose that God is less delicate to friendship
than an earthly friend ?
I don't suppose a man would sin un pardonably
if he did not read tbe Bible any for a whole day.
I don't believe God Bite watching every man, and
saying "There I be has not read tbe Bible for
twenty-four hours I Put that down against him 1"
And we ought not read ihe Bitle for fear
of any such accounting. We carry in
the Bible God's sweetest messages of choer
to us. If there is anything noble and
delicate end tender anywhere, it is to be
found in the Bible. And ought we so to define
such messages as these by a perfunctory reading
of them T We sboull carry tbem as we carry let
ters from our dearest friends, and whenever the
mood calls for us to do so ; read them again and
i gain, and if we found that we had forgot a sen
tence or a word, go back and read it over again,
and so gel them by heart.

to tbo growth of Christian character.

Many years ago, when rice was dear in Eastern
Chioa, efforts were made to bring it from Luzon,
where it was abundaut. At Manilla there was.
however, passed a singular law, to the effect that
nn vessel for China should be allowed to load with
rice unless it brought to Manilla a certain num
ber of cages full of the little "butcher birds," well
known to ornithologists. The reason for this
most eccentric regulation simply was that tbe rice
in Luzon Buffered much from locusts, and these
locusts were destroyed in great numbers by
butcher birds. In our sublime and superior com
mon sense such a law appears trivial. Yet if we
could caculate the vast amount of money annually
lost to this country by insects, caused by the wan
ton and wicked destruction of birds, it might not
seem so very trifling after all. It might be even
found to be advantageous to import or raise large

RESCUE OF A BURIED MINER.

tbe fullowing exciting scene :
"One of those excitements incident to mininr

and tbey were answered. Then commenced the
work of rescue in good earnest. First, lumber was
procured to bold back tbt superincumbent earth
which was constantly dropping; then a long
iron tube with an augur bit attached at one end,
with which to penetrate, tbe fallen dirt and convey
air to him. Some thirty feet from tbe tunnel was
filled with loose sand and gravel, aud tbe tube
was too short to reach. It is a haiardotis work
to labor in a falling drift. The earth overhead
oftnn continues to peal off, sometime in large
masses, until an immense dome la arobej off sev

hensive that, if they commenoed to move the fall
ing drift, they might b interrupted by further
slides. To make sure, a set of hands commenced
a eidodrift, to run at right anglos through the sol
id earth. An exciting race began,, stimulated by
the double ambition of being first in, and first to

COALS OF FIRE ON THE HEAD.
It is easier to extol noble deeds than to perform
tbem, and excellent Christians find it difficult to
repay injuries with kindness.- But tbe law of
Christ is imperative, "If thine onemy hunger, feed
him ; if he thirst give bim drink ; for in so doing,
thou shall heaps coals of fire on his bead." Tbe
following anecdote, whioh we find in the Philadel
phia Press, relates to an exercise of Christian for

Philadelphia, a people noted in their early history
for their exemplary Christian virtues ;
