A Test of Christianity.

As they wera about to retire to their

an old and much worn bible, and inform

he skeptically assailed. He could not har

An Interesting Incident.
Franklin-, the Philosopher, when quite
& youug man, after an absence of some
time from home, thought he would try the
extent to which instinct in a parent would
discover the child. The result was, that
his mother was loth to give him shelter
over night, though a severe suow storm
was raging, and would only al'ow him the
use of an arm-chair to sloop in having
tho colored boy stay in the same room, af
ter the precaution of locking up all Ler
silver j her instinct was more than over
come by her prudence, and she, with bit
ter tears, to tho last of her life, regretted
vthathcr son had thus been treated in his
mother's hfiuse as a felon.
One of our townsmen, on a recent visit
to New Eugland, after thirteen years ab
sence, thought he would try Franklin's
cxperiuicnt. He rapped at his father's
door, mentioning that he was weary, and
asked if he could' have a lunch, as it was
some distauce to an inn. It was his fath
er who met him at the door, and atked hiui
in, telling him he would be supplied with
food. The mother was not in the room,
but as the father asked her to brinq the re
freshments, she came in.
With the feelings and emotions of a
child unknown under a parent's roof, our
hero had turned his back, that on opening
the door, his face might not tit first be seen
ho proceeded to partake of what they
hospitably set before him. Mentioning
that be came from Rochester, N. Y., our
friend was at once questioned if he knew
any one there whoso name was R
"0 yes, 1 knew him well," was the reply.
"He is a hatter in tho city, and made my
bat." showing it, with the maker's name
"Well," says the mother, "you must
give me the lining, at any rate, for it's a
long time since we have seen our son."
At thin, our friend could not further
lesitato to make himself known and what
followed, all can imagine. Rural New
Importance of a Word. A mother
sat at a fireside of home, and her darling
boy sat with her. Love and peace seamed
hovering over them. A word from that
mother's lips was treasured up iu the heait
of the boy. Years rolled on. Tho boy
.. had gone from the paternal roof, and bis
voice was heard in the halls of hiscountry.
But through him spoko tho holy iufluencc
of a mother, and a nation felt tho power
of that fireside word. Again it is night.
A fair-haired boy look impluringly in the
faoe of a worldly mtuded-mother, and in
quires of holy things, That mother utters
a word that crushes forever the germ of
eternal truth. A word fitly spoken is Ike
dew to a drooping flower. One badly spo
ken is like the worm that ucver dies, and a
word unuttered may effect the world for
. weal or wo. ' .
JKjJ-Tb Six degrees of crime are thus

only a defaulter. Who aleals a quarter of

dred thousand is a rogue. Who steals fif
ty thou sand is a knave. But he who steals

MOTHER TOLD XE HOI TO GO.
Allen was sent to the city when jui?e V
lad. The new scenes and new objects
which met' his eye, si unlike the quiet and
unchanging life of his native village, filled
him with iutcreat and excitement. He nev
er felt tired of looking an 1 walking about
in the time spared from bis employtneut.
Amongst other places, of which he had
heard much. wa the theatre. Some of
his associates went, and there was no end
to the wonderful stories they told of what
they saw and heard. Allen felt a rising
desire to go too. Ha manfully resisted it,
'Gome said one of his companions, 'go
with us to night.'
No,' answered Allen, 'not to night.'
So you always say, not to night come
decide at once to go.'
'No, not this time.'
'Hot to night, still replied Allen, walk
ing away. '
'Yen shall have a ticket if you will only

'no, no, keep it yourself. I canuot take
.'How obstinate,' rejoined the other, 'why,
what enn be the reason?'
Allen hesitated for a moment. 'My
mother told me not to go to tho theatre,
therefore I cannot go,' he at length fimily
replied. His compauion ceased to urge
him longer, be beheld in Alleu's face a set
tled purpose to obey, aud left without say
ing a word more. That was one of his
mother's last injunctions. 'My son, do
not go to tho theatre.' Under such circum
stances, some lads might have said; 'Why
I see no harm in the theatre; why should
I not go? I see uo rcssou why I cannot.
My mother, I fancy, did not know as much
as she thought alio did, she, away off
home, cannot tell what is what; besides,
other youug nieu of my age go.' I say
some lads might have reasoned thus, and
disobeyed and gone. Not so with Allen.
His mother bade him not to go that was
sufficient for him. He trusted in her
knowledge, and confided in her judgement;
and he meant to obey her, yea, and what
was better, be was not afraid to say so. It
was a wise decision; and if every youth
away from home, had moral courage enough
to decide doubtful questions in the same
way, there would be many better meu for
Allen is now an excellent clergyman.
IF YOU PLEASE, DON'T SWEAR
A little boy, not many years ago, when
about to die, culled to his bedsiue his young
companions, his friends, and his relations,
in oider that he might bid farewell and
give a parting word to each ouc.
To one he said, 'Good bye, dear Jamia,
love your father and mother, read your
Bible, be a good boy, and meet me in hca
vcu.' To another '.My sister, I am going
to die: Jesus, my Saviour and Redeemer,
wants to take me to his bosom. 0' lmw 1
love him! 0! how I long to Ic with him
and join that heavenly baud of angels that
surround his throne! .Sister meet me iu hea
ven.' To another he gave a kiss, and thus
parted with all except I113 father. He call
ed him to his bedside, threw his arms a
round his neck, and said Tapa, I Lave one
request to make of you.'
What is it my darling?' said the weep
ing father bending over bis beloved and
now dying boy.
Papa, dear pupa, if you please, don't
swear any more"
Little Willie's eyes soon ceased to spar
kle, his pulse to beat; asweet smile played
on his cherub face, and he was no more.
He was soon among the blest. His father
j complied with his request, and became a
useful and consistent Clirislain. If there
are any among you. dear liulc readers, as 1 1

Iu Spin and Sirdiuia the grrvernmeots
have decreed tho abolition monasteries, and
the sales of estate belonging to the Church.
They seem to consider jt impjlitic and un
just to permit a set of idle men, who con
tribute nothing to the productive industrj
of the country, to accumulate large estates
to be used for factious or corrupt purposes
and therefore those two Catholic govern
ments havo resolved to adopt a radical rem
edy for the evil, by applying such proper
ty to the necessities of the State, and to
Durnosos of public benefit. These acts have
excited the indignation of the Pope of
Rome, who has remonstrated against them
iu strong terms and would, were ho pos
sessed f the power of some of his prede
cessors, visit both Spain and Sardidia with
the scourge of an interdict, and thus des
troy the ties of civil society. But . he n
shorn of hie power by the onlightonment
of mankind, and can now scold where oth
ers brought offenders on thoir knees for
p-iTdon. Men of every country aro becom
ing too intelligent to bo longer humbug
ged by the pretentions of one man to uni
versal, spiritual and temporal authority
and, even in Rome, were not public senti
ment kept down by foreign bayonets, tho
temporal power of the Popo would be tram
pled under foot, and the example of Spain
and Sardinia would bo followed. And
indeed, we look for such results at no very
distant day. It is impossible that the hu
man mind can much longor remain in
darkness, whilst light is shiuiug all around.
The Italians will yet have their day ,whcn
despotism will be overthrown and freedom
But while the Pope of Romb is losing
his temporal power in Europe, and his
priesthood is being reduced within more
reasonable limits, he is seeking to augment
his authority elsewhere and in the Uni
ted States particularly. It was with this
view that ho -sent Bediui as a special agent
to our government but the antecedents
of the man were such that it was with dif
ficulty he could make his escape from some
of his outraged countrymen and his mis
sion failed. It is with this view that the
number of archbishops and bishoj s is mul
tiplied here; and that foreigners are ad
vanced to these stations in preference to
native Americans. It is with the same
object that these torcign bishops are in
structed to procure the tiiles to all chuich
property, aud to uuld it subject alone to the
authority of Rome and it was for this
purpose tbat a simulaneous effort was es
sayed iu various States to destroy our pub
lic schools. It was fancied that the order
had obtained a foothold sufficiently strong
to enable them to carry out their measures.
They thought they could break up our
c minion schools aud banish the Protestant
Bible aud thus by having the rising gen
eration debarred the means of publio edu
cation, prepare tbem for submission to the
emissaries of Rome, who are ever ready to
improve all such occasions to enslave and
debase the people. But they miscalcula
ted their strength, and erred iu their judg
ment of the American people. The b.ow
which they attempted to strike against pub
lic liberty, has recoiled upon themselves.
A free press could not be intimidated or
bribed, and spoke outj boldly and public
Bcntimcnt ra lied iu vindication of pur free
institutions and the public school system
aad now instead of having augmented the
power of Rome by their assaults, the priest
ly agents of that power find themselves
exposed to a "fire in the rear," which
thieatens to send them back bootless to
their employer. Jesuitism can uo longer
wouu itself into the confidence of the Amer-
icuu people, nior sap secretly the founda
tions of our government. The American
people are thoroughly aroused us to the de
in nf Rome : and henceforth those who
mrt, - -, t0 tha iW :U be
lookuJ upon Mcniieg und be universally
i distrusted. And that this course will be
justifiable cannot be denied, since it ap
pears, . that even in the couutries which
have heretofore been devoted to the inter
ests of Rome, it has been found necessary
for the publio safety, that the priestly or
der shall be snipped of all its ill gotten
wealth and power, and reduced to a harm
less condition. We may attain by pre
cautionary measures what force bus been
employed to obtain iu other countries.

. How to be Happy,
I will give you two or three good .rules
which may help you to become happier
than you would be' without knowing them ;
but as to being completely happy, that you
can never bo till you get to Heaven.0 This
first isj "try your best to make otuers hap
py." "I never was happy," said a' certain
king, "tilt I began to take pleasure in the
welfare of my people; but ever since then,
in tho darkest day, I have had sunshine in
my heart." My second rule is, "be con
tent with little." There aro many good
reasons for this rule. We deserve but lit
tle ; we require but little ; and "better is
a little, with the fear of Ood,' than great
treasures and trouble therein." Two men
determined to be rich, but they set about
it in different ways; for theono strove to
raise bis means to his desires, while tho
other did his best to bring down his desires
to his means. Tho result was, the one who
coveted much was always repining, while
he who desired but little was always con
tented. My third rule is "Look on the
sunny side of things."
Look np with hopeful eyes
If 1 bough all tbing seem loriorn ;
The sun that nets to night will nee '
Again to-morrow mom.
The skipping lamb, the singing lark,
and the leaping fish, tells us that happiness
is not confined to ono place. God in his
gooducss has spread it abroad on the earth,
iu the air and on the waters. Two aged
woman, lived in tho same cottage, one
was always fearing a storm, and the other
was always looking for sunshine. Hardly
need I say which it was wore a forbidding
frown, or which it was whose face was light
ed up with joy.
