Our Oldest Man.
ON THE DBATH OF GEORGE GOODWIN,
Meek patriarch of our city, art thou dead?
The just, the saintly and the full of days,
The crown of ripen'd wisdom on thy head,
The poor man's blessing, and the good man's
Would that our son., who saw thee onward move
With step so vigorous and serenely sage,
Of thee might learn to practise, and to love
The hardy virtues of an earlier age.
For more than fourscore wintcr.g.had not chilled
The glow of healthful years, on lip, or cheek,
Nor in thy breast the warm pulsation still'd
That moved with upright zeal to act and speak.
Ne'er from the righteous cause withheld by fear,
Of honest toil ashamed, nor proud of wealth,
But trained in habits simple and sincere,
From whence republics draw their vital health.
To every kind affection gently true,
The husband and the father and the friend,
Thy children's children still delighted drew
Around the honor'd grandsire's chair to bend.
But now thy mansion hath its master lost,
Wrapp'd in its pleasant green, with trees o'er
spread, And we, a patriot sire, who knew the cost
Of blood-bought freedom, in the day of dread.
We mourn thee, father. On thy staff no more
Thy cheerful smile shall greet us, day by day,
Nor the far memories of thy treasur'd lore
Withhold the joyous list'ners from their play.
Where stood that ancient race we fear to stand,
In foremost watch on life's beleagur'd wall,
To bide the battle with a feebler hand,
Perchance to falter, and perchance to fall.
Oh God of Strength! who takest from our head,
Our white-haired patriarchs, firm in faith and
Grant us thy grace, to follow, where they led,
A pure example to observant youth,
That tho' the sea of time should fiercely roll,
We so its billows and its waves may stem,
As not to lose the sunshine of the soul,
Nor our eternal rest in Heaven, with them.

Money to Make Out;
OR, THE EVILS OF DEBT.
BY MRS. II. M. DODGE.
" Unfortunate, indeed! There is Col. B. and I
must meet him or cross over the street, which, by
the by, I can do with a very good grace, as there
is a table on the opposite wall?, covered with line
flour-pots, arranged for sale. Really, that's too
bad! He's crossing too, and I must meet him af
ter all ! I began to hope that I should reach home
this morning without tliu honor of another dun."
" Good morning, Mr. Hall, how are you?"
"Quite well myself, Colonel, hut but my child
is rather ill, so you will please excuse me, ns I
must be in haste."
" With all my heart, Mr. Hall; but when you
have a little leisure, we will look over our ac
counts, as 1 have a large sum of money to make
out within a week, and shall therefore be under
the necessity of calling in all my dues. Good
" Money to make out! This is the universal
cry. Now there is not, in the whole English lan
guage, another combination of words which can
fill my mind with such strange gloom and terror,
as that same " money to make out!" Should a
bold assassin enter my chamber at midnight, pre
sent a dagger to my bosom and bid be fight for my
life, it would not horrify me half so much as the
entrance of a kind friend, whom I owed and could
not pay, if I guessed he had "money to make out."
Were I in a frail vessel, in the midst of a furious
tempest, and should 1 hear the captain say, after
a long and desperate struggle of effort, that all was
over, and we were sinking into the dark bosom of
the deep, it would not unnerve me half so much
as that dreadful " money to make out." Nor if I
hung on the tallest spire of at. Peter's church at
Rome, and saw the whole vast building a mass of
red flame, beneath me, methinks I should not feel
one half the strange uneasiness that maddens my
brain when I am told, with a peculiar nod, there
is money to be made out. Yes, and what would
be, if possible, still worse, were I fastened to the
fatal table of the Inquisition, watching the slowly
descending swinging knife, as it came nearer
nearer, until it whizzed my very hair, I am sure a
colder horror would not then curdle my life-blood
than that which comes out of that most fearful of
all arrangement of letters, "money to make out."
Thus mused our genteel and richly dressed city
mechanic, as he rapidly passed up Broadway,
looking neither to the right hand nor the left, lest
he should meet some too familiar countenance.
Just as ho turned into the street which led to his
own house, he met a woman who was selling ear
ly strawberries. She asked him to buy. He tho't
he could not afford it, but the fruit looked delicious.
He fumbled his pockets aud finally succeeded in
bringing out a fifty cent piece. This would pur
chase enough for a fine desert; and, any way, it
was only fifty cents, it he was in debt; and certain
ly, such a trifle could not affect him; so he gave
the woman the only piece of coin he possessed,
and directed her where to leave the fruit. He had
walked on but a few rods when a ragged, half-
starved looking negro boy stepped into the path
before him, and very impertinently said his moth
er wanted the money he owed her for washing.
" Very well, my little man," said Mr. Hall, who
was sometimes rather complimentary when unex
pectedly dunned; " but 1 have no change to day,
though 1 shall have some this week."
" Mother says she must have it now," persever
ed the boy, in a louder tone of voice. " It's only
fifty cents, sir; she has some money to make out
to pay her rent, and if it ain't paid by to-night we
shall be kicked into the street in the morning."
" Money to make out again !" groaned Mr. Hall,
with strides which left the blackey far in the rear,
and soon brought him to the marble steps of his
dwelling. "Who could have believed that the
mouths of tho very negro boys in the street, would
open to pour upon me these words of shame and
He entered a large and handsome back parlor,
threw himself upon a sofa, and covered his face
with bis handkerchief; he charged the maid to ad
mit no person to that room, and to answer all en
quiries after himself with a ' not at home.'
We do not know exactly what passed in his
mind during the hour which he remained in that
petition; for he gave no other signs oflife than a
wild whisper of the word 'debt,' followed by a
convulsive shiver, when the door-bell was once
heard to ring; but we will take his own text, and
thus innocently fill up this pamtul blank ot time
by imagining what the sermon might have been;
and if our words are not precisely the same as
those by which he expressed his feelings in his
own mind, still wc doubt not but there may be a
very striking similarity between the ideas.
" Debt." Who is nursing a scorpion in his bo
som, until the poison will taint his whole blood,
and madness or death ensue? It is the man in
debt. Who is clinging to the top of the unshelter
ed, eternal rock, gazing with bursting eye on the
vast and wide expanse ot ocean arouuu nun, auu
exposed to the pittiless vengeance of the wild ele
ments, with no hope of escape? It is the man in
debt. Who is sailing on the calm waters, far a
bove Niagara, and delighting himself by gazing
into the clear depths beneath him, knows not his
position, until the changed motion and the stag
gering rapidity of his boat startles him with the
dreadful truth that he is in the rapids, and is Hear
ing with increased speed the frightful chasm? It
is the man in debt! Ah! and who is leaning over
.Etna's crater, while ho gazes far down into the
depths of boiling flame, feels his foot slip, his bal
lance lost, and finds himself sinking sinking? It
is tho man in debt !" . .
At length our man in debt sprang upon his feet,
with an energy so wild, and yet so determined,
that one might have well imagined that he believ
ed himself suspended over the warring fires of the
volcano, and fully designed to make his escape.
His eye gleamed with new fire, and his counte
nance glowed with a strange brightness. He
strided the room rapidly, and clei" - evinced by
his quick glances from one thn; ... -mother that.,
some new and important subjet-t. undergoing
a thorough investigation in his mind. Once he
paused, and carefully examined the quality of his
coat and pants, the high lustre of his satin vest,
the fineness of his linen, and the gold chain, which
was the safeguard of a hundred and fifty dollar
watch. Then he glanced at his wife's piano, but
quickly turned from it with a deep sigh to a long
and sorrowful gaze upon the flower-pots arranged
in tho back yard. The dinner bell at length broke
in upon his reveries, and an unusual expression
was seen on his countenance when he entered the
dininsr room. His wife tenderly inquired the
cause, but he renlicd only lV a strict scrutiny of
her cap, her dress, the furniture ot the room, and
lastly, of every thing upon the table. After the
meats were removed, a beaufiful glass dish, filled
with strawberries, covered with cream and loaf
sugar, was brought in and placed on the table. He
started at the sight as though an adder had bitten
him, and bis affectionate wife again inquired the
cause of hi? strange conduct.
" We are not able to afford such things, Lucy,"
said he quickly.
" Whv. mv dear." answered Mrs. Hall, "the
woman told Betty that you paid only fifty cents
" Only fifty cents!" reiterated the husband, ris
iiV2 from his chair; " the bill of our poor washer
woman is only fifty cents, and though she greatly
needs it to-day, I cannot pay it, in consequence of
purchasing this unnecessary fruit."
"Unnecessary," repeated Mrs. Hall with a
"But wife," added he with a severe determina
tion in his voice, " there must be a change in our
affairs. I cannot live longer us I have lived for a
vear or two past. I am dunned at the corner of
every street, and am always afraid to look about
me, lest I should meet the eve of some one whom
1 owe. I am utterly crashed with debts, and if
theie cannot be a change in our affairs we are
The pretty lip of the young wife pouted in si
lence. " I repeat it with the strong emphasis of a
drowning man, there must be a change in our af
fairs. We must abridge."
" Mridge.!" cried Mrs. Hall, reddening to
the very temples, " what can wo possibly a-bridgc?"
" Mv dear, continued Mr. Hall, with a soothing
tone, as he beheld the distress ot a wile whom lie
most tenderly loved, any sacrifice which you may
be obliged to make, will cost me a far more severe
trial than it can possibly cost you ; but I see no
other way we must abridge our expenditures."
A long pause succeeded. At length Mr. Hall
" My brother has a less lucrative trade than
mine, and yet with a tainny tnree times as niiinor-
baby, and you will soon find its little smiles and
love will more than repay all your efforts."
"Mrs. Green! my friends would shun me! Just
think of Mrs. Brown, and Mrs. Willet, and Mrs.
" Stop! stop! child what have you to do with
them? They will not pay your husband's or your
debts. Besides, if they are persons of good com
mon sense, they will not despise you for conduct
which it is both your duty and interest to perform,
and if not, why should you care for their friend
ship? It is not on them that you are dependent
for happiness, but, as the old fashioned poetry

And that dear hut our home."

Mrs. Hall turned pale. Had it come to this!
Must she be tied up to her own offspring, no long
er able to ride, walk, or visit at pleasure:
"And," continued he cautiously "it we had a
smaller house, we could do with less help in the
kitchen, and besides, we should need less furni
ture, and several expensive and nearly useless ar
ticles might be turned to the payment of my debts.
My gold watch and your piano"
1 he poor wite sunk back in her chair, and cov
ering her face, burst into a hysterical flood of
tears. Had she heard the conclusion ot the sen
tence, she might perhaps have felt more for her
husband than for herself for, pressing his hands
against his throbbing heart be declared that death,
not debt, was preferable "to asking her to make
this last sacrifice
ersed the apartment.
Mrs. Hall was tho spoiled child of indulgence;
still she was naturally kind and n--i Is, n-ml nt- j
tiling was wanting but the proper circumstances
and the right direction given to her, feelings, to
develope her true character, and make her a most
patient and self-denying wife. That afternoon, as
soon as her husband was gone, she ran over the
street to see old Mrs. Green a woman highly es
teemed by all for her good sense, us well as for
her kind and sympathetic heart and to her she
made known her troubles.
" Tush! tush! child," said the old lady with a
smilfijfci never mind that. Just come down pa
tiently to your altered circumstances, and, trust
me for it, you'll be a great deal better off some
day, than you ever were yet."
" But how shall I begin?" said the young wife,
wiping away her tears.
" Begin? Why begin by giving up all you can
do without, and be comfortable. Let the piano
"Don't name it, Mrs. Green. Oh! my dear
piano! what should I do without its music?'"
" Its music? Would not the music of your
happy husband's heart, relieved from the burden
of debt, be much sweeter in your ears? Give up
the pianno it is a childish toy compared with his
" And what next, Mrs. Green," inquired Mrs.
Hall, as a new light seemed to animate her coun
tenance. " Why, dear woman," replied the old lady,
tapping her under the chin; " after you have part
ed with all you can spare, have taken a low-rent
house, and dismissed all your help but one girl,
then begin one of the sweetest things a mother
ever had to do the taking care of your own dear
Let me assure you that nothing affords greater
contentment than independence even on a small
scale and this your poor husband is tully prepar
ed to enjoy. I "have been told for a long time that
he was deeply in debt, and that he was going to
keep up a style and appearance which he could
not maintain. Yes, Mrs. Brown and Mrs. Willet
both told me so; and they said, too, that he owed
their husbands money, which they had often ask
ed him for, but never expected to get."
" Is it so, then, replied Mrs. Hall, sobbing like
a grieved child. I am glad you told me that. It
will help to crush this pride, and nerve me up to
duty. My resolution is taken. Dear Mrs. Green
you have saved me."
" But let mo give you a little advice," said the
old lady, "before you commence your new course
of life. I have bee'ii over the same ground myself,
and lean assist and encourage you a great many
nines, bv telling you howl got along, and pcr-
inp ynu may profit a good deal by my experience
111 the first place, and I consider this very impor
tant too, never -appear depressed or discouraged
before your husband. Your cheerfulness will do
much to keep up his courage, and assist him in the
labor and self denial which he will have to en
counter. If you have any sad feelings, either sup
press them entirely, or give them vent when you
arc: alone; but above all things, never upbraid him.
1 his' would inflict a wound upon his very heart
strings, and I should greatly fear, would shake the
foundation of his alfection for you. You say your
husband was always kind and indulgent; be assur
ed then that he will do the best for you he can,
and even if, in his righteous determination to throw
off the burden of debt, and restore to every man
he owes his own property, he should sometimes
be obliged to deny you conveniences which you
may find it difficult to do without, don't repine
before him or make use of any short words; nay,
don't even let a shade pass over your countenance;
but let him see that you can cheerfully deny your
self for his sake. I can assure you he will not for
get such things, but will reward you when ho is
able. There is another rule which you must a-
dopt, and impress it daily on the mind ot your
husband; it you would get out ot debt, never buy
what you do not strictly need, nor even then, if
you cannot pay for the'ar:icle when you take it
do without it rather than make a debt, x his is
wdiat has crushed you."
Mrs. Hall went home with altered feelings. She
examined all her furniture and selected the plain
est and most useful articles to be retained. She
looked at her beloved piano, and the tears would
start, but she dashed them away, and said the sac
rifice must be made. It was tho gift of her dear
husband on the day of her marriage, and it should
be given up for his sake. Suddenly a new thought
crossed her mind. "She was a fine musician; every
one admired her at the piano. The instrument, if
sold, would not probably bring half its value;
would it not bo advantageous to keep it and be
come a music teacher? She screamed with joy at
the thought. Several young ladies of her acquaint
ance were about commencing music. In less than
three hours she had visited every one of them, and
had engaged Ion auln.lura nt 50 per ai:tllim. Four
of the young ladies were the daughters of mer
chants to whom Mr. Hall was indebted for a less
sum than the amount of music lessons.
" And now," said she, as she flew home with
the lightness of aliappy bird, "they will never dun
my dear husband again."
That night Mr. Hall walked Broadway with a
slow step and heavy heart. He had seen most of
his creditors, told them his plan, and arranged
with some of them to take his most valuable furni
ture and his watch. He had dismissed his fore
man, determined to fill that station himself, and
had rented a small but convenient two story house
at ii? 1 80 per annum. This was in reality the best
afternoon's work which he had done for more than
two years; still he was miserable. When he
went out he left his wife in a paroxysm of tears;
how could he meet her and tell her of his arrange
ments: lie passed his own door several tunes,
and walked up anil down the street with the feel
ings of an outcast. He was unable to ring the
bell, and sat down on the steps to meditate on his
wretched lot. At length, observing that the back
gate was open, ho passed into the kitchen, and
stole softly upstairs. The nursery door stood a
jar, and he heard his wife .singing Watt's cradle
hymn with a cheerful voice, and rocking her in
fant in her arms. He fell encouraged, and the
next moment he was embracing the two dearest
of his earthly love. The young wife tenderly
smoothed back the long, black locks which bad
fallen over his forehead, and assured him that she
never was so happy as at that moment. Then
she went on to tell him all her little plans, and
while he met the animated glances of her sweet
blue eyes, he pressed her still closer to his heart,
and felt that he, too, was happy.
Two years from that evening, Mr. Hall owed
no man a shilling. He still lived in the same
small house, still' labored early and late, and his
wife still taught music; but had you searched the
city over, you could scarcely have found so happy
a family. Every prospect of wealth began to
dawn upon them, and they looked back with grate
ful hearts on the vortex ot ruin from which they
hfrrt go narrowly escaped.

Alpacha. Probably few ladies who wear and
admire this beautiful fabric called Alpacha, are a
ware of the source of its production. The Alpa
cha is a wool bearing-animal, indigenous to South
America, and is one of four varieties, which bear
I general points of resemblance to each other. The
,Llata,,onfi of these varieties, has long been known,
and otten described; but it is only a tewyears that
the Alpacha has been considered of sufficient im
portance to merit particular notice.
Nine tenths of the wool of the Alpacha is black,
the remainder being partly white, red, and griz
zled. It is of a very long staple, often reaching
twelve inches, and resembles soft glossy hair
which character is not by dyeing. The Indians in
the South American mountains manufacture near
ly all their clothing from this wool, andare enabled
to appear in black dresses, without the aid ot a dy
Both the Llama and alpacha are, perhaps, even
more valuable to the natives as beasts ot burden
than wool-bearing animals, and the obstinacy of
them, when irritated, is well known. The impor
tance of the animals has been already considered
by the English, in their hat, woolen and stufftrade,
and an essay on the subject has been published by
Dr. Hamilton, of London, from which some of
these details are collected.
The wool is so remar kable, being a jet black,
glossy, silk-like hair, that it is fitted for the pro
duction oftexile fabrics differing from all others,
occupying a medium position petween wool anil
silk. It is now mingled with other materials in
such a singular manner, that while a particular dye
will affect those, it will leave the Alpacha wool
with its original black color, and thus give rise to
