To YOUNO MEN.-A gentleman writing
to the New York Timen tells the follow?
ing truthful story:
A friend of mine, who is at the head
of one of our Government others, has in
his employ a large number of clerks,
among whom was a strong, bright boy,
occupying a subordinate position, the
duties of whioh the boy filled creditably
and satisfactorily for a few years. At
the end of that time, a vacancy occur?
red. The boy (then just grown) applied
for the advancement. "No," Bald my
friend, "I cannot give you tho situa?
tion." "I think, sir, I am quite capable
of filling that place, and I would do my
best." "I cannot give it to you, and 1
what is more, I do not intend to let you 1
remain here in any position." "How,
sir, in what have I failed to givo you 1
satisfaction? I have always done my 1
duty." "YOB, and it is that I think well
of you that I wish yon to do botter; you \
can never be anything more here than a '
clerk. It is a miserable life for a young
man to begin upon. You will pass the !
best of your life here, and at fifty have
no maro salary and have done no more ?
than you now do at twenty. You have ,
an uncle who is a butoher; you are a 1
good accountant, write a good hand, are ]
honest and bright, and with those '
qualities your uncle will be glad to
take you with him.- Eighteen months 1
after this conversation, a nice little 1
wagon and horse drove up to the
office, a very well-dressed, fine-looking
young man got out. It was the ex-clerk
ooma to thank his former employer for
the advice he had given him. He said : '
"If it had not been for you, su*, I would '
bave gone droning on in ?bia Tontine of
olerkship all my lifo; whereas now my
ancle has taken me into partnership.
We have a large market shop and are 1
ioinga paying business." It seems to 1
me that this story might point a way ont 1
at difficulties of finding situations for |
unemployed clerks. I have told it ax- .
lotly as it occurred, forbearing to altor 1
the trade of butcher for one that would
mit a fastidious taste io? agreeable sur- 1
roundings. For myself, I would prefer '
having a large market shop to being all '
my life a shabby-genteel clerk. j
CHEAP, BUT HONEST.-Many years ago,
when Judge Robert M. Charlton, of '
Savannah, Ga., was quite a young man, !
he, in company with bis father, Hon. ?
D. P. Charlton, spent every summer in '
the delightful village of Clarksville,
One day Robert was passing along the '
street in Clarksville, and it happening to 1
be election day-members of Congress '
were then elected by what is called the
general ticket system-was met by a ver?
dant but honest voter of tho mountains,
who accosted him thus:
"Mr. Charlton, are yon the man that ]
is running for Congress?"
"No, sir, I am no candidato-my fa- '
thar is, however. But may I ask why '
this inquiry?" 1
"Nothing, only I havn't voted yet." '
"If it is consistent with your feelings,
theo, I would like it if you would vote
for my father."
"I would just as soon vote for him us 1
for anybody." I
Mr. Charlton thanked him, and think- !
?og, perhaps, his friend was seeking a ~
treat, invited him into a neighboring
"What will you take?"
"I never drink anything, but I see
they have ginger oakes. I'd as lief take
one of them with you as not."
"Very well. Give ns a cake."
"My brother is in town with me."
"AU right. Take him a cake with my
Another cake was purchased and paid
for, and the two then parted-"Greeny"
to find his brother ana Mr. Charlton to
?oin in the merry dance with his yonng
friends in the parlor hard by.
"The golden honrs on angels' wings"
passed rappidly away with Mr. Charlton.
His friend was soon forgotten. Late in
the evening there was a pause in the
danoo, and pur verdant friond, mnoh to
the surprise of every one, stalked into
the parlor, and inquired for Mr. Charl?
Of course all eyes wore directed to our
friend os he approached Mr. Charlton.
Drawing from his bosom a four-by-six
inoh cake, he said:
"Mr. Charlton, here's your cake. My
brother voted afore I seed him."
Mr. Wade, the British Minister, was
lately assaulted in Pekin by a paok of
young "Heathen Chinee." They called
him "foreign devil," and hit him on the
head. He "went for" them officially,
and the urohins explained that they had
"mistaken their man." *

A toaohing incident is reported from
Chattanooga. An utter stranger called
an a respectable farmer last week, and
laked him if bia house had not been
robbed during the war. The farmer re?
plied that it bad. "I," ?aid the stranger,
"waa one of the marauding party that
took it. I took a little silver locket. "
"That locket," said the farmer, bursting
into tears, "baa been worn by my dear,
Jead child." "Here it is," replied the
stranger, visibly affected; "I am rich; let
me make restitution ; here are $20 for
your little son." He gave the farmer a
?50 bill and reoeived $30 in change. He
then wrung the farmer's hand warmly
ind left. Tho farmer has since dried
his tears and loaded his shot-gun. The
550 bill was bad.
TELEOBAPHT ON A LARQE SCALE.
Some idea of the work of telegraphy

total special despatches and regular re?
ports transmitted over tho Western

Women in Australia perform the duties
