A SKETCH FROM LIFE. gl
" You have just returned, friend Manson, im

Western Journey I" di

was a circumtstanuce attending it which will m
make it the most memorable event in my c<
whole life." o1
" Indeed, what is that, my friend ?" th
"Ah, it would take more time than either af
you or I could now spare," said Manson, o
" for me to relate, and you to listen to the in
particulars; but I will attempt a very brief si
sketch of the substance: pi
When I went to school in Connecticut, I
had a very dear friend and schoolmate, m
named John NeL-d. He was one of the in
brightest and most beloved pupils in the al
school. He grewv up, paid his addresses to pi
a beautiful anid excellent young lady, a mem- bi
ber of the church. At length be was mar. p<
ried to his M'tary: and they prepared imme- re
diately alter that event, in pursurance of a m'
previous plan, to emigrate to a Western m
State. The exening before the day we were to
to separate, perhaps forever, [ had a tender t(
interview 'ith by bosom friend atnd his love- I
ly wvife ; it was deeply aflieetiing to us all. te
Thu next morning they departed, with n:
the aafIeetionzate faewells of' nany old friends i
and neighhors in the ton~ n where they wver, ni
born and reared, with a hanidsome provisiona I
made by the parents of both, who were in ma

to give John anid Mary a enll. Arriving at il

"Better not, sir, he is a savage now, an<

" I must and will see John," I replied, and
tarted immediately for the store, according
o her dit ection. There was no time to lose
or I was to be at conference, whiiher I waa
ound, at a certain time appointed. I readi.
y foond the store and entered. The first
ight disclosed four men playing- cards at a
able. The next glance discovered a mar
tretclied out along a whisky hogshead. The
zndlord was sitting by, but instantly hopped
p and ran behitid the counter to wail upon
me, supposing I was a customer. Says I
is Jolhtn McL-d here."
They all looked at me on hearing the
nestion, as if I had been the old one or a
"What is that to you," he sullenly replied

was speaking I took another sweep of the
nom with my eye, and saw something like

If it is that unhappy man, you will find
some of my business," I replied. 8o I
rent to him, recognized.him, though in this
ntoeking, heastly plight, and began to wake
im. This was no easy job, and while I was
bout it, the rumseller and hisguests remon
rated, telling me to go away, threateniig
hastisement and showing violence. I had
an y hand a loaded whip, am riot inferior.
Ou know, in point of wiry, muscular pow.
r; and though a man of peace, I confess
tat in the twenty-sexen years I have been
i the ministry, I never felt so strong a dis.
nsition as at that moment, to give four or
ve men a thrashing. They were intimida.
d, and I succeeded at length in getting
hn upon his legs, and trotting him off
Dmeward. My presence and the exercise
,bered him, so that when he reached his
vel he was in his right mind.
I forgot to mention that when I first went
to the house, the child upon the ground
arted up affrighted, running to her mother,
-Ving, " Is he going to carry us to jail,
other, where lather was?" And that poor
other sobbed upon my hand, as if her heart
ould break. Well, I conversed with them
i hour, talked of old times in Connecticut,
e old village, and school days. He was
ftened; his heart was touched. Then I
-ged the pledge; his wife put in her pro.
undly earnest, almost frantic plea. She
It this, indeed, to be the hour of destiny.
" Do you think I can keep it ?" said, at
igth, the miserable man, once so pronising,
" It is," said I, with confidence and hope;
you can keep it. I know you can. In the
Lme of humanity and religion, try it, ( eat
in and God will help you." At last he
mnsented. We knelt down on the earth
re wa, no chair, no table in the house-I
ok out the pledge, which . always carry
my pocket, placed it on the stool where
nry had been sitting, and han-ded him my

ter them, and throw around John the seed
all good influeneoes, to prevent his suflfer
g a relapse. Whatever further charges he
old incur on their account, I promised to
aas soon as informed of them.
Another decade rolled by, during which
>tidings camne to me at the East from this
teresting couple. At length I was called
;in to visit those Western regions, and to
as near the residence of this unfortuntate
other. On reaching the town, my disap
intment was extreme to learn that he had
moved to a die ant country. I anticipated
isfortune ; but as the laice designated wvas
t far from my intenided route, I resolved

hat in mercy was I setit to seei A scene
ke that or worse, whieh ten years before
t such awful traces on the memory, never
be obliterated ? I could not tell. At a
dden turn in the road, I thought I discerti
another white house ini the distance among
e trees; yes, it is so, with green blinds;
rd as I went nearer, graveled wialks wet e
en, a handsome paling, and ornamental
es and shrubbery. Suir ly there is some
uistke in the directiot, ; this camn't be John's
nie! yet it is the seconid on the left.
Fastetting my heast to a book, I went to
e door and knocked. A girl, just on the
'rge of womanhoi.od, op~ened it.
-Dices Mr. M.L-d live here 1" 1

"lHe d.,es, sir ?"
Isl he or htis wife at home I"
"Meether is within, sir; hut father is in

My eye glanced throngh the open parlair
or. A finid carpet covered thte floor. Trhere
ser i handsome. chairs an~d tither fmn 'iture;
tt I saw no more. for~ Mrs. ML-d by
tis time w'..s informed of a genimletmn's
rrival and lost not time in miaking her apl.
earance. "Goond God !" was all I remem.
er to have heard from her, as she rushed
eward onl seeing mue, and clasped me by
e neck. She almost fainited anid shed a
.od of tears, and my own condition wats
ot nmnch nore- -comnused. Rtuv.,it,.. a
little, she informed me that her huasband was
at home, but out upon the farm. Too im.
patient to wait. I hurried away to see him.
He met me as he was coming home. As
soon as he knew who it was, he ran forward
and grasped mtre in his arms, saying as he
strained me to his bosom
-'Thank God! thank God! you are my
savior under heaven. This is all your work,"
looking around. 0 0, 1 am rejoiced to see
you are here to see it."
When we had returned to the house, the
ten year's history of struggle, repentance
anid reformation was recounted. Prosperity
was the consequence. The dwelling was
his, the farm and all. His wife was happy.
The beautiful young girl. almost a voung
lady now, was the dirty child that was
crawling on the ground on my first visit.
There were three more children now. To
crown the whole, he said:
" After I had persevered a year in absti.
nence according to that blessed pledge, taken
on that awful day. on the stool in the log
hut, which rises to me sometimes with spec.
tral horror-after keeiping it sacredly a Year,
I committed myself to the church, of which
ny wife, who has been an angel helping
me, was a member. Prosperity attended my
worldly businese; but thi4 was not a com
plete satisfaction. I wanted to be more;
and conmnenced study for the ministry. My
dear friend and brother, I am now a minister
of the everlasting gospel. How much, what
an inexpressible debt do I owe to you!"
We knelt down together on the rich car.
pet, instead of the cold earth, and prayed as
fervently as I prayed before in the log cabin ;
but in what a different strain! Instead of
the almost despairing supplication, and en
treaty of forlorn hearts, crushed to the
earth with sorrow-thanksgiving, praises
and gratitude now rose spontaneously from
our tongues and hearts-0, the heart of
( 'wsar never swelled with such triumphant
joy at any of his conquests, as mine does
for my agency in the salvation of this one
man, and the happiness of his family.
THE WORST OF CRIMES.
How much a w'ord or a passing sentence
sometimes reveals. One day last week, a I
lady, past middle age, came into the oiice
to buy a paper. As we handed it to her,
she spoke with trenulous earnestness--" , 1
it maskes my heart ache to see the rum-loles
springing up. It is worse than highway rob.
hery to sell a man rum-that only takes his
money, and leaves his reason." Aye-hit

VALE OF ONE LEAF.
There was once a car avan crossing I think,
the north of Inrdia, anid numbering in its
companyv a godly anid devout missionary.
As it passed along, a poor old man wvas
overcome by the heat and labors of the jour.
niey, and sinking dow~n, was left to perish on
the road. The mnissionary saw him, and
kneeling down at his side, wvhen the rest had
passed along, whispered into his ear, " Broth.

raised himself a little to repily, arnd with
great effort succeeded im answering, " he

ed at the answer ; and in the calm and peace
ful appearance of the marn, he felt assured
he had died in Christ. How or where, he
thought, could this man, seemingly a hea

of it he observed a peice of paper grasped
tightly in thre hand of the corpse, which he
succeeded in gfettingi out. What do you

As the system of mileage remains at present,

two hundred and tweny-four dollars for his two
years' services, while the other receives about
twenty thousand dollars. This is pretty good
pay for fifteen months' services, and there is no
man sent here who cannot certainly live hand
somely (if so disposed) on the amount provided
by this bill. There is some thought that the
President may v'eto the bill on the ground that
it is an ex post facto law, as it increases the pay

more so than the one whereby the members vo
