Sittino- ?tnt cristi? ??uing,
MinB unbent, and farley free,
Twilight Rilen oe broken only
By tho wind o'er roof and tree,
Obi thoo friend of mauy winters,
All my heart goes forth to the?.
I oan connt with steady fingers .
. livery year ein ce wo two met;
Some aro brightened by thy smiling, ,
These my heart munt aye regret;
Sotuo aro a?ii?enod by tivy frowning,
Thees my heart would fain forget.
But thy smiting or thy frowning
Ever sprang from act of mine;
What was I, that fault or folly
In my life ohnnld darken thine?
"What woro all my sickly virtues.
Matched with one, almost divine?
Kow, my friend so t vied and trusty,
I can see thee as thou art,
In my ovary thou/ht this evening
Keen repentance hath itu part,
And tho cry "too lute!" ie ringing
Through and through my stricken hoart.
All too late to piece tho fragments
Of a love chain, old aud raro,
And too late to tend a blossom,
Whoso first budding was so fair;
All too lato to prize affection.
When, my nanto has lost its share.
All too lato-ttie doopest sorrow
Will not bring tho bread I cast
From my lips, in wanton error,
On the waters of tho past;
Y?k. oh friend! I do not murmur,
For I love thy love at last.
Iicnoni from an Old Merchant.
That veteran and honorable mer?
chant, Jonathan Sturges, of New
York, at the dinner given in his
honor, on tho occasion of his retire?
ment from active business, gave the
following golden counsel to young
Now, gentlemen, since there is
nothing that I eau talk about that
Sou do not understand a great deal
otter than I do, I propose to say a
few words for the benefit of the
young men outside, and if you ap?
prove of what is said, let it be con?
sidered as said by this grand jury of
merchants now assembled.
One of the first lessons I received
was in 1813, when I was eleven years
of age. My grand-father bnd col?
lected a fine flock of merino sheep,
which were carefully cherished dur?
ing the war of 1812-'15. I was a
shepherd boy, and my business was
tb watch the sheep in the fields. A
boy, who was more fond of his books
than of sheep, was seut with me, but
left the work to me, while he lay in
the shade and read his books.
I finally complained of this to the
old gentleman. I shall nover forget
his benignant smile as he replied:
"Never you mind, if you watch the
sheep you will have the sheep." I
thought to myself, what does the old
gentleman mean? I don't expect to
have any sheep. My aspirations were
2ni te moderate in those days, and a
rat-rate merino buck was worth
$1,000. I could not make out exact?
ly what ho meant, but I bad great
confidence in biufc as he was a judge
and had been to Congress in Wash?
ington's time; so I concluded that it
was all right, whatever he meant, and
went out contentedly with the sheep.
After I got to the field I aould not
get that iden ont of my head. Fi?
nally I thought of my Sunday lesson:
"Thou hast been faithful over a few
things, I will make thee ruler over
many things." Then I understood
it. Never you mind who else ne?
glected his duty, be you faithful and
you will bave your reward 1 I do not
think it will take many lads as long
as it did me to understand this pro?
I received my second lesson soon
after I como to this city, as a clerk to
the late Luman Reed. A merchant
from Ohio, who knew me, came to
purchase goods of Mr. Reed. Ho
expressed his gratification at finding
me, there, and said to me, "You havo
got a good place. Make yourself so
useful that they cannot do without
you." I took his meauiug quicker
than I did tho proverb about the
sheep. Well, I worked upon these
tvro ideas until Mr. Reed offered me
an interest in his business.
Tho first morning after the copart?
nership was announced. Mr. James
Cioery, the old tea merchaut, coiled
to see me, and snid to me: "You are
all right now; I have one word of
advice to give you; be caroful who
you walk the streets with." That
was lesson number three.
In this connection I must repeat
an anecdote told of the late Robert
Lennox. A country merchant came
into the store of Mr. Morton, a high?
ly respectable Scotch merchant, to
purchase goods. He spoke about
credit, references, &o. Mr. Morton
said: "I will give you what credit
you wish." "Rut," said the mer?
chant, "I am an entire strunger to
you." Mr. Morton replied, "Did I
not see you at church with Robert
i ?r - , - .. vr ?
Lennox?" "Yes, I waa at chtir?h
.with bim." "Well. I wil! ?tt&kft
man ??cs Hebert TipfflnTf: w?i iake
to church with him.1'
I hope these threes lessons of watch?
fulness ' over the ' interests of their
employers, watchfulness over their
partners' interest? and their own,
after they- are joined,' followed by
intenso watchfulness that no black
sheep creep into their , folds, may bo
impressed by these anecdotes upon
tho minds of those for whom they j
One other lesson I feel it very
necessary to inculcate-that of pa?
With a little patience, most young
men will find a position as high as
they havo fitted themselves to fill.
In all the changes which have
taken pluce in my firm since 1822, no
partner has been brought in who has
not served as a clerk in tho establish?
ment. And now I leavo my house
well-organized, prosp?rons and free
from complications, still in thc hands
of those who have served in it as
clerks for a longer or shorter period.
I mention this as an encouragement
to young men to persevere iu the
faithful performance of their duties.
Loss OF A Bia HAT ON THE RAIL?
ROAD.-A gentleman from the neigh?
borhood of Middleton, in going to
Baltimore, recently, in the cars, had
the misfortune to lose his hat some?
where between Mt. Airy and Elli
cott's Mills, and fearing that ho could
uot get another one anywhere big
enough for his head, he got tho con?
ductor to telegraph baok to have tho
missing article forwarded. The an?
swer came as follows:
"Down expresa train met bat lying
on the track, two miles from Sykes
ville Station. Mistook it for the i
depot, and ran right in. Engineer
discovered the error and backed out.
Freight train despatched to remove
