"Wlion I was ut coJlogo I clinnccd to
bo returning to my room at it Into
hour one night, when I stumbled ovor
soruothing lying on the Hitlownlk. As
1 was just begiuuing my junior yenr,
nnl lmtl consequently given up
tho sonlioniono ulen tlmt swearing
wn8 n mark of superior manhood, with
out ho much ns ti blessing upon care
less watchmen I bout down, and after
a liltlo examination, found that I had
stumbled over ono of the oity news
boys. Ho was nhnost frozen; so
wrapping him up in my heavy clonk,
I carried him with somo difllculty up
tho long hill, and soon had him in
quarters something warmer than those
in which 1 had found mm.
It was a long time before tho boy
became conscious qf his whereabouts;
out vruou uis iioiirium was over, auti
he sat before my fire wrapped in my
'warm dressing-gown, I ascertained
... .... .... ... . . .. ,
how it happened that I found him
asleep on the sidewalk.
He told his story in a few words.
He was alono in tho world; his father
nl inntltur wnrn ileflj, mill ho was
shifting for himself. lie had been un
successful in the side of his panels
that day, was hungry und thinly !
dressed, and the wind blowing very'
cold, he had crouched down i nunnent
at the coi nor to shield himself from
' the cutting blast, had fallen asleep, 1
and m tlmt state 1 had found him.
I thought the lit tie sinner was lying
to nio when he began about his father
and mother, and I watched to see if he
didn't bring himself out some way bo
fore he iiniMicd. He was a brighL ',
little fellow; thin, to be sure, and very
pnlo, but ho did havo u keen, black
oyo, and no mistake. IJis story, nhort
as it was, was not ended boforo I, fool-1
ing sure he was not lying to mc, had I
decided what to do. I
Tho noxt morning, measuring tho
length, breadth and thickness of my
nowsboy, I went down street to my
tailor's, obtained a suit of clothes
which ho chanced to have on hand,
and which, with n few changes, proved
to bo just tho thing, purchased a pair
of shoes which exactly fitted tho meas
ure I had in mv Docket, and returned
to my room beforo tho lad was awake.

"Well, my man," said I, "how do you

j Ho was out of bed in a flash, and in
i a very short tiino was dressed in his

"Well, I kept tho boy with mo till
ho was well and strong, and ono morn-
ing called him to mo, nnd in a Bot
speech, a la junior exhibition, said:
"Mr. Nowsboy, it is high timo-lhnt
you should begin again tho voyage of
active life, and this morning I am go

don't niako a bad uso of it. Boforo
you go I want you lo promiso mo that
you will bohavo yoursoii, do an orna

things, will you ?"
Ho said yes, of eourso, a dozon
times, and aflor a hearty shako of tho
hand and a hasty "Goodby, Sam," ho
disappeared dowu tho college stairs.

discouraged, I started homo.
Misfortuno did not desert, nio hero.
On sooking my wallet, I found that it
had boon stolon, and that I had Hot a
dollar in my pocket. I havo a faint
recollection of not fooling pattictilarly
amiable just nt that time. Out West,
in thoso days, was something dilToront
from what it is now, whoro you roll
ovor tho ground at tho rate of forty
miles an hour, and out West, with
not a dollar, ami no means of com
munication but a lino of snail-paced
fitnge-eoaehos, was anything but de
lightful. Tho conch for tho Enst was just
starting, and having watched it out of
sight. I went back to tho tnvorn and
sat down to thiuk how. i should got
out of my difliculty. 1 had been sit
ting there for soino little time, when
u man who had been wanning himself
with his back to tho lire drow liib chair
near mine, and aflor n, littlq chat at
the weather, surprised mo by asking
if I wasn't Mr. , of Providence,
lUioclo Island. I told him I was, and
boforo I could return the compliment
of asking his name, he said:
"S)o you remember the boy whom,
when you were a student iu the uni
versity, you found almost frozen in
the streets of Providence ? Do vou re
member that I promised on for 1 am
hat boy), to be an honest, industri
ous man, to behave myself, and be
come an ornament to society? Yes,
sir, I am that boy, and I can say, with
out fear of denial, that I am an honest
and successful man, and that what
ever I am, morally, or socially, I am
indebted to you for it," and he shook
my baud ns only n grateful man can.
Then ho told mo what ho had been
about all thoso years; how by indus
try and persevoraneo he had won tho
confidence of his employer, had in
time been admitted by him as a jmrt
ner, had married his partner's daugh

My surprise at the appearance of
"my boy," his evident pleasuro in
in meeting me, his earnest inquiries,
after my welfare all these things at
the time I fully appreciated, and I did
not hesitate to tell him how I was sit
uated. He laughed at my misfor
tunes, hoped I "woukl't lie awake o'
nights grieving about them," and
taking my arm, lod me away. He
took me to his office, told me of his
extensive business, made ine shake
hands with his father-in-law, and I
don't know how many othors, and
soon after, leading ine up the stately
steps of as fine a dwelling a a reason
able man could wish to possess, he in
troduced ine to its lovely mistress, his
I passed a pleasant week under
that friendly roof, and more than once
I thought, as I journeyed homeward,
how many more such grateful hunests
might bo garnered if men would be
less miserly ot tho proper saud.
"We often look with wonder anil awe
upon tho many fine spc-eimena of this (
noble animal which are see"i in our
cities. What would man be und whai.
could ho do without a horse. Hi
pre..ei.ce and the st'i-i. o and the bene
lits which he bestows upon mau, seem
to ns alone a buflicieut proof of the!
existence of God and of the degree of
care and protection which he exercises
toward man. A hundred animals, j
quite ns usolul and as capable of being ,
domesticated for Hie service of man, ,
might easily have been oreated by tho i
saino power that mndo the horso.
This ono, howevor, wa3 sufficient, and
ns tho Creator only designs to furnish
us with what is nocossary for our uso '
and requisite for tho development of
our faculties, only this ono was givon.
Wo confess that wo have often la
mented tho fato of the horso, when wo
havo seen him, as ho froquoutly does.
evincing not only more of tho virtuos ;
of usofulnoss, amiability and effort, but j
oven a highor dogreo of intelligence j
than his owner or driver. Ono is
somolimos strongly tempted toboliovoj
if this animal could walk erect nnd j
possessed hands and the power of;
speech ho would bo tho superior of J
man, and to wondor if all his intelli-:
gence, docility and usefulness are never
to rccoivo any othor reward than his
monsuro of corn nud oats, until tho
lime comes for him to end his briof
but laborious and usoful oxistonce.
Wo cannot resist tho thought, some
times, that he is a higher intelligence
than wo supposo, porhaps a fallen j
spirit, degraded in its embodiment, .
and working out n life of probation
and penance, and wo novor look at a
fine, intelligent horso, without fueline
in soino degree an ineroaso of revoronce j
and thankfulness to tho Almighty
Tho Biblo sconis to docido tho point
that tho first domestication of tho
horso was iu Egypt and not in Arabia,
as somo has supposed. Whon tho
Israelites ennio iuto Canaan wo find
that tho Canaanitos wont out to light

Six hundred years after tho tiniojust
roforred to, Arabia had no horses.
Solomon imported silver, gold and
spices from Arabia, but all Iho horsos
for his own cavalry and chariots, ho
procured from 'Egypt. In this placo
it is montionod that a horso brought
from Egypt cost ono hundred and fifty
shekels of silvor, which nt two shillings
throo penco each, the accepted valuo
of n shokol of silvor, amount to about
17 storling, an enormous sum for
Though tho horso had long boon tho
companion and tho sorvaut of man,
yet his nalivo country cannot with
certainty bo traced. It sconis probu
blo that ho was first domesticated in
IoJl'ti but tho prcciso period is not
known. About two thousand years
boforo the birth of Christ, when Abr'a-
was drivon into Egypt by tho
famine which raged in Canaan, Pha-1

Dress in England.
A London correspondent of th
cipo lrwnt writes as follows :
"There has never been a time during
the present reign in England when so
much moaej' has been spent, ns nt tho
present period, upon dresses. Our
fair ones are running a !-aco in ext nv -
aganco. In mnnj families the . cost Per
person for dress averages JC1000 a year
tins, ot course, exclusive of jewelry.
For a single dress, prices varying from
JM.0 to J2150 arc frequently paid. It
is in the rarcnosa of mntorinl and its
amount that the excess usually con
sists, not in tho skill or art of tho do-
sign. Jjuntig tins week I nave been

of ndmission were ono guinea, and '
there I saw the prevalent wastefulness 1

Trains of satin, some yards long,
woro seen dragging ovor gravel walks I
and collecting nil foreign matter from

diminish at the rate they huvo followed
for tho Inst two or thrco seasons. They
have dwindled into something of the

and duchesses whom I saw on Tues
day at Kensington were exposed to a.
hundred mishaps. To walk with such !
trappings is n difliculty, but to walk,
nnd to stop, and to turn round, is n
dnngor. You may lake your hat oft'
to a lady, those days, but if you ad
vance to shako her liltlo hand, you
fluster hor, for you may tread upon
her dress. If she is alarmed, her ad
mirer is still moro so. Somo men
havo acquired tho greatest dexterity
in avoiding an unfortunato step, for
thoro aro men who can stand on any
thing, on Uio spiro of St. Paul's, but to
tho nvcrngo, tho modem garb of our
ladies is a sunro and a vexation."
The Captain's General or Cuba.
A Havana correspondent of tho Now
Orleans Cicsccnl gives an account of
tho festivities attending tho departure
of Dulco, tho late Governor General
of Cuba, aud adds:
"Probably no othor Governor Gen
eral was ovor so popular with the Cre
oles. The affair must havo cost somo
8,000 to 10,000 dollars, besides, ho
was presented on board with a box,
to be opened by him out nt sea, and
said to contain ovor $2C,000 in hard
cash". Tho office of Governor Genoral
is a very lucrative one. luo salary is
twice that of our Prcsidout, whilo tho
iusido pickings aro supposed to bo
much larger. Concha was.said to havo
carriod away $3,000,000. Sorrano
was almost bankrupt, and being a fa
vorito of tho Queen was, at his own in
stance, appoiutcd captain gonoral horp
with a viow of recuperating his for
tunes. Ho mado enough. I do not
know, but intelligent and lcnowing
pooplo say that Dulco must .have
made a million. Each now captain
goneral has a new stato enrriago and
four horses furnished free of oxpenso,
and ho hag thrco palaces. Only ono
of thoso buildings is callod a palucoj
but tho ono in the Cerro, callod Quiu
ta de los Molinos, is what wo in tho
Statos would term n palaco. It is a
largo aud exceedingly lovely spot,
with nil tho appliance and comforts
of advanced civilization. Tho other,
and summer residonco, at Mariauao'
(livo jnilos from the outer limits of
Havana) is albo a magnificent resi
donco. Tho Governor Gonoral of
Cuba is woll provided for. Having nn
almost royal sway, and ropresoutlng
in hisporsou mid powor3 his sovereign
with, iu somo respects, moro autlw
