r.vneatli the moonlight and the snow
Lies dead my latest years;
The winter wind are wailing low
Its dirges in niyear.
I grieve not with the moaning wind
As if a loss befell ;
lleforctne. even as behind,
Ood is, and all is well.
NVt mindless of the growing years
Of care and Jos and pain,
ilr eye are wet with thankful tears
r'or blessings which remain.
If dim the sold of life bas grown
I will not count it dross.
Norturn from treasures still my own
To sigh for lack and loss.
Love watches o'er my quiet ways
Kind voices speak my name,
And Upg that And it hard to praise
Are -low, at leat to hlame.
llw softly ebb the tides of will !
How Acids once lot or won,
Xm lie behind ine green and still
Ik-neath a level sun?
How h united the hiss of party bate.
The clamor of the throng!
How old, harh voices of debate
Flow into rhythmic song!
MethinLs the spirit's temper grows
Too soft in this still air,
Somewhat the restful heart foregoes
Of needed watch and prayer.
The bark by tempest vainly tossed
.May founder in the calm.
And he who braved the polar tvot
Faint by the i-!c of balm.
Uet for the weary hands is good.
And love for hearts that pine,
lint let the manly hahitude
Of upright oufs be mine.
Ue near in mine hours of need.
To ootbe, or cheer, or warm .
And down these slopes of sunset lead
A up the bill of morn!

Mr. Tabernacle's Daughter. I.
Old Levy Samuel Davis, of Clothiers
Alley, St. Bartholomew's, Smlthfleld,
Little Britain, was as 'downey a cove'
to me a slang that seems almost ob
solete, but was fashionable when Dick
ens wrote 'Oliver Twist' as you could
find in the three kingdoms. Tie rose
early, and lie went, to bed late; and he
lived in the timeis when money was to
lie did not eoiiflne himself to the
sale of 'garments, old or new, although
the nimble penny had an attraction for
him; but now and then Lev-S. Davis
old ' s. d.,' as they called him ven
tured into buying rare and curious old
silver: cruellies and altar plate he was
especially fond of; and, accompanied
by a sweating and pulling Anglo-Saxon
servant, carrying Heaven knows bow
many ounces of old plate in a canvas
bag, Levy would venture far into the
lands of the Philistines, and sell his
wares to the West Knd silversmiths.
'God bless me what fine work!' cried
Jlr. Borax, the eminent jeweler. 'IVhere
did you get it from, Mr. Samuels?'
'That's mi buziness, Sir; but I know
you'll buy it. God bless me! you know
a fine piece of work when you sees it,
Sir' I always sez, sez I, 'if there is a
man who has a line nose for a piece of
good work, Muster Borax is the mam.'
And, Sir, Davis ish mi'name.'
The end of it was that old C . d.'
sold that for 25s. an ounce that he had
given only us. for; while the crucifix,
upon which Mr. Davis gloated with pe
culiar pleasure, passed from Mr. Davis
to Mr. Borax, and from Mr. Borax to
some great nobleman's house; and Mr.
Davis grew rich. Where did he get
these works of art?"1 It was in the old
time, and ships from beyond seas es
jiecially from Spain and the Low Coun-
ries brought rare treasures, which
would now fetcli ten times the price
they then fetched.
As Mr. Davis grew old, he who had
assisted at the spoiling of many churches
bethought himself that he would enrich
Ins own; so he scraped more and more,
tnd tools larger interest, and saved even
candles' ends, till his neighbors won
dered at his parsimony. Even his fa
vorite son was mulcted of some part of
his education; and Mr. Samuel Davis
junior was taken from University Col
lege, London, and put into a lawyer's
office. As this lawyer was under Mr.
Davis' thumb he had foolishly been
joint security for a defaulting client
young 's. !.' had his articles presented
him gratis, upon paying for the stamps
only; and old ' s.d.' chuckled with
pride as he thought .that his son would
be 'a gentleman by act of Parliament.'
'S'help me Benjamin!' interjected
x. ef.,' who in his hot youth had a
wicked wit, 'It's the only way .we can
'O'd yer tongue o'd yer tongue,'
cried the old man. Vc can buy 'em

But tiiis was little consolation to him.
His money increased marvelouslybut
his trouble as well. Ins priest came
and read him the holy books and the
penitential psalms, and his heart was
'Sammy!' cried lie, one day.
'Wot's the row?' asked the young
limb of the law, who was practicingen
grossing on some blue-lined dratt-pa-
per, and irritating his -father's soul by
using it wastefully.
'Such a boy!' said Davis 'senior, pee
vishly. 'There ain't no row o'ny there
will be. I'm goiu' to die.
Time enough for that, father,' re
turned '. J.' junior, without looking
'Rob,' said the boy, piouslj-.
'I'll leave it all to shtrangcrs, and
build a taliernaele, if you ain't good.'
'Xo, you won't, returned 's.il.7 jun
He was quite right. He did not. But
lie did build one end of a meeting-house,
or synagogue, and he worried all his
brethren till he made them subscribe
toward it, for which he took all the
credit ; and henceforward he was called
This act of faith gave him a lease of
life; but in due time he slept with his
fathers, leaving 's. eZ.' a gay young fel
low, with a taste for opera, flowers,
Covcnt Garden, fish dinners, and dry
wines. He was an admitted attorney,
but did not practice tnucji, and hat, in
deed, little need for work. But he took
a house in a side, street running out of
Piccadilly, and on the door he placed
the name of
MR. DAVIS TABERNACLE.
He thought the name a good one. He
haled the name and trllie of Levy, and
abominated Samuels; but Davis, he
presumed, was Welsh.and the. surname,
be asserted, he Inherited from h'lB fa
ther, lie. was old Tarbcrnacle, and his
sun had been often In his lifetime called
Mr. Davis Tabernacle, it Is needless
to say, iinisjiered. He was not suspec
ted of belonging to the ancient people
of whom he was so unworthy as to be
ashamed; and, although -he had but
one clerk, he was full of business. He
moved in society of a DecuMar sort;
plenty of lords and ladies, honorables,
and so on, did he know alter a man
ner; and lie, as we have said, was ac
cepted as a Christian attorney, 'there
are two or three sorts of Jews: the
mealy Jew, the red or sanguine Jew,
and the blnc-black Israelite, who al
ways has a dark blue mark round his
shaven chin, and the ladles of whose
tribe have a tendency to wear mus
taches. Mr. Tabernacle was of the
mealy kind; had very red lips, a white
skin, flaxen hair, and silver eyebrows
and eyelashes. In those days every
body did not wear mustaches which,
had he worn, young Tabernacle would
undoubtedly have dyed ; and our soli
citor's early education at that great uni
versity, which was then profanely
called 'Stink-o'-malee,' prevented him
from tripping into Angle-Judaic ar
chaisms in his speech. A Welshman he
was, from' the 'Welsh Tebernacles, to all
people except his wife, his daughter,
and his own people.
What a thing is faith! The son of
old ' s. (".' was ashamed of his people;
but he yet married from among them,
and Mrs. Tabernacle, though by no
means indifferent to the charms of so
ciety, was devoted to the religion of her
people. So was her lamented father-
in-law, as we have seen ; who, although
only live feet one inch in height, had,
equally with a giant, a soul and one,
as he felt, to be saved. Hence he spoiled
the Egyptians with an incredible devo
tion ; but his unworthy son, though he
too spoiled the Egyptians, worked on
the Jewish Sabbath, and frequently
went to churches where he might meet
with his clients at their devotions. It
is with grief that we explain thftt Mr.
Tabernacle did not go there from relig
ious purposes. He even affected to
sleep during the sermon;, but he was
accompanied by his daughter Myra.
Myra was a beauty, and, better than
a beauty, a really good girl. Mr. Tab
ernacle had married early, and was a
well-preserved handsome in his own
eyes well-dressed, and prosperous
young gentleman (act of Parliament,
Geo. , cap. ) when his daughter,!
with the vigorous adolescence of her
race, was a full-grown woman of elgu-!
teen. The attorney was very fond of
her, dotingly fond of her, indeed ; and
Myra, who was a line brunette a true
mixture of mealy Mr. Tabernacle and
his ravan-haired, black-eyed wife ac
companied him every where, even to
hurch, where she sat under the Rev
erend Dr. Smller, the fashionable
preacher of the day. Some woman have
a penchant toward theology. Myra's
mother was a learned Jewess, and held
theologic discourses with her rabbis;
and had demolished Christianity "30 of
ten that Myra began to be excited about
it, and read and reread until she began
to believe. This curious change at
once so awful and so prinftil toher that
she hardly knew what to do she kept
quietly to herself, saying nothing to
her mother, and very little to her fa
ther. Are Chris tains good men, papa?' she
said, one day.
'Uncommonly good, my dear for
business !' lie said. 'I would rather deal
with them than with our own people!
Bah I' He snapped his fingers at them,
for hejiad lately been set at defiance by
one of them. 'I don't care how little I
see of them !'
Well, I'll tell the truth,' said Mr.
Tabernacle. 'They are good. They've
treated me well, anyhow; and I always
tell Myra Cavendisli the truth.'
He had given his daughter that fine
name because he loved her from the
first. Love of off-spring is very strong
with men and women of his race; and
somehow the baby had grown irp with
the second fine name always sticking to
her. She was called 'Miss Cavendish'
by the servants more frequently than
'And, mamma dear,' said Myra,'they
believe just what we do. There was Dr.
Smiler expounding Malachi the other
day, and he said just the same as you
'Some of their priests are learned,' re
turned Mrs. Tabernacles. 'It didn't mat
ter where you go, perhaps, as I have
thoreughly grounded you ; and as lor
Samuel, your father
'Tut, tut! I go upon business, my
dear. What does it matter what you
believe? It matters what you do.'
Myra turned away from the two, and
sought her own room. At church her
growing convictions came upon her
with redoubled force; and Dr. Smiler,
who -was by no means gifted with mis
sionary or apostolic zeal, had yet, with
out his knowing It, managed to convert
her.. Of what good may we not be the
unconscious instruments! Smiler, D.
D., was a spooney, soft; fellaw, who
preached touching sermons, very well
suited his audience; had little or no
learning, but borrowed a good deal;
and was a beautiful reader. He would
almost weep at his own tones when he
read; and, conscious of his strength as
well as his weakness, he took care to
pick out the Sundays of the finest les
sons, gospels, etc., and would then read
himself nearly the whole of the service,
to help his curate or, rather, assistant
who was, of course, a good roil to
him. It was whispered that he answered
an applicant for the post with, 'you're
exactly the man I want; but you have
a magnificent voice, and you read well
therefore you won't do for me.'
Knowing his weakness as well as his
strength, the doctor used to supplement
and back up his soft sermons with
learned discourses on the 'minor proph
ets;, and, as he drew from sources of
which his congregation knew nothing,
he seemed a prodigy of learning. Myra
drank in every word; and upon one
Sunday, when the doctor read the 'Ser
mon on the Mount' that most beauti
ful of all written lessons In a way that
no one could excel, Myra felt her soul
go, as It were, from her, and fell back
In her pew, a convert to those tender,
holy, and persuasive words.
Mr. Tabernacle sat peering through
his white eyelashes at one of his custo
mers, thinking upon cent, per cent. Dr.
Smiler thought of the appropriate ac
tion, and was kinkicd into enthusiasm
at the glory of the words as a merc
lesson; and there, crouching In the
corner of her pew, little Myra gave her
soul from the faith of her fathers, and
trembled with rapt adoration and holy
What Dr. Smiler had so happily be
gun, the same preacher finished; for;
having cribbed the Ideas of some learned
commentator on Isaiah, he made an ex
cursus, leaving the minor prophets to
take care of' themselves; and so ex
pounded Isaiah Hi. while Mr. Taber
nacle was snoring that the scales
seemed to fall from the eyes of Myra,
and she was forever converted.
Oh, If Dr. Smiler who was so well
pleased with himself that morning
could have seen and understood the
meaning of the low courtesy Myra gave

humble Myra to herself, with a pang of

his eyes fell upon his neat black silk
stockings, shapely legs, and patent-

daughter desired to see; for, in modern
life, even our prayer-goings are not
quite pure. This gentleman for the
person was male was Mr. Percy Gow-

of an intellectual race, and heir to a
Collaterally descended from the poet
Gower, the young fellow was of good
breed on, both s'ldes for some genera
tions;, but had the misfortune, in a
worldly point, of good families general
ly he did not value money xs the world
values It. He had a vast love for what
is beautiful.and a taste which was quite
unexceptionable, but very general, ne
not only loved fine horses and well
built carriages, but knew and appreci
ated a good, yacht, a fine, picture, and a
well-bound book. If he loved a good
cigar, he.also desired a sound and even
curiously fine bottle of wine. The un
fortunate young fellow who, like the
th'e' heroes of the uoble historian of
Panl Clifford,' was a worshiper of the
Beautiful fell also at the feet of the
True and the Good. If he bnllt a shooting-box,
It was a gem; If he purchased
a gun. It was admirable In its make; all
his volumes were bound by Bl vlere ; his
clothes were made by Hill; his cabinets
were, from Glllow; his diamonds from
Storr and Mortimer; and his wines
were not bought from Messrs. Gllby.
So, again, his pictures were by Land-
seer or Mlllais and he bought very few
of the other Academicians'; and his
horses were picked from the very best
studs, ne wanted but little here be
low, but he wanted that little good.
Unfortunately he inherited this taste
from a father who desired considerably
more than he did, and had left Percy
very little to pay for his wants.
The day on which Percy met with
Mr. Tabernacle he thought should be
markfd with a white stone. He had
never seen such a goodnaturcdsolicltor.
All solicitor so far as he knew,
were more or less money-lenders;
and Mr. Tabernacle was the most
reasonable and free of all.
Among Percy's expensive habits was
one very selfish indulgence, which cost
him a good deal. He was fond of the
beautiful atfil the True; and the most
beautiful and the truest was, he found,
a noble action. He had found some
poor, broken-down author, who bail
been trying all his life to preach to a
deaf world, who had not found the
world at all read- to fasten to him. In
his despair he tried to establish a news
paper written on aesthetic principles, so
as to criticise matters with some regard
to good nature and truth. Percy met
the poor man just as his love for the
True had lodged him In a
prison, paid, his debts, and absolutely
carried on the paper. It did not im
prove his estate; and Mr. Tabernacle
very wisely made him abandon the ven
ture, though he still aided the author.
Mr. Tabernacle liked the young man
for we all admire our opposltes; and
there was a free-handed liberality about
Percy Gower that made Mr. Tabernacle
tingle all over when he thought f it.
He aided him as much as he could ; but
he took care his I O U for every advance
with proper interest; and, by judicious
depreciation, he managed to buy up a
great many of Mr. Percy's little4 bills.
Hence he not unnaturally looked upon
Percy as his property; and hence his
frequent visits to the little chapel where
Dr. Smiler preached to a most select
audience,and where Myra had been con
'I wonder, I do,' said Mr. Tabernacle,
'what he comes here so often for. He's
quite a good young man, he is. When
his uncle dies, now' Then Taber

On the other hand, Fercy was pon
dering what that charming young lady
who never had a prayer-book, and
was always Indebted to a gray-headed
gentleman In the next pew for the use
of his could do in little Tabernacle's
pew. Young gentlemen who borrow
money do not care much for the domes
tic relationships of their bankers; and
there was a rumor among the set who
knew him that Mr. Tabernacle was a
gay bachelor, very familiar with the
-various theatres, and on very intimate
terms witli certain lady artistes whose
portraits appear in the shop windows.
Moreover, Mr. Percy had once met
this charming young lady who sat In
the pew gazing with such rapt admira
tion on the Reverend Smiler, and had
danced with her; nay, he had heard
her name from his hostess Miss Myra
'Old Tabby's a lucky fellow, he
thought. 'Where the dooce does he
get so lovely a companion and so good
a one!' he thought, as he burled his
race In his hat, and prepared to take
his seat for even at chapel he wor
shiped the Beautiful and the True. He
loved that which was lovely, and My
ra's face was indeed full of sweetness
'I'll ask him to-morrow,' said Percy,
as the Reverend Sniljer, in his persua
sive tones, rose and began with,

And a very fine elocutional exercise

of those who listened reverently, and
both iiercy and Mvrawere among them.
When the doctor read the Absolution,
Myra felt that she was reconciled to
the Great Spirit, and Percy forgot his
folllesnd seemed to be forgiven.
It was three or four days after that
In Mr. Tabernacle's little back-room
Mr. Percy was seated. This room
was 1tned not"only with deed-boxes,
with jewel-cases and plate-chests,whlch
liberal young men had asked him to
take care of; and Mr. Tabernacle, In
his shiny cane-bottomed chair, listened
with the points of his fingers tapping
against each other, to Mr. Tercy Go-
wer's little plea, ne wanted "to raise
some more money, but he wanted this
to pay some old scores.
'For, he thought it time to begin to
think Just to begin, you know of
marrying,' as he said.
'Umph! Umph!' said Mr. Tabernacle,
a dark cloud settling on his face.
Money-lenders do say 'Umph !' when
money is 'tight,' and it is always tight.
'Umph !' he said again.
His daughter Myra had insisted upon
coming to town with him, and upooj
spending a good deal of money for
mamma and herself. She was In the
front-room, waiting; and the green
baize door was not, though .Tabernacle
did not know It, quite shut.
Percy sat still. He had heard the
dreadful monosyllable before 'Umph!
,'Sh-stay a bit,' said Tabernacle, turn
ing pale, and for once relapsing Into a
pronunciation not rcognIzed by Uni
versity College. 'You said you thought
about settling, Mr. Percy. Have you
your eye ou anyone?'
The lover of the Beautiful and True
said he bad. He had, Indeed,. fixed his
eye rather tightly since youngmen of
his condition are particularly eager,
when they see the Beautiful, ets., to try
to pessess it.
'Well, ye-es,' returned Percy,wonder-
ing what It had to do with Tabernacle.
'Umph!' said the lawyer, speaking
harshly, and turning a dreadful nasty
color. 'You must think of another set
tlement, Mr. Percy.
'What do you mean, Sir?' said the
'What I say, Sir. Don'tdisturb your
self. Sit down a moment.'
Tabernacle spoke thick and quickly.
He was evidently in a rage. Percy
was quite calm. The lover of the Beau
tiful tapped his elegant boot made by
the best maker, of the best leather
with some assurance; and, looking
rather amused than angry, awaited his
solicitor's convenience. For being a
lover of the Beautiful, be seemed to
have had arithmetic left out of his com
position, and had some Idea that bebad
only to tap another vein of his fortune,
and he would again discover gold in
Tabernacle unlocked a tin box, richly
japanned in curious and Inartistic red
dabs, and took out a number of pa
pers. 'Look at that, Sir,' he said. The so
licitor exhibited a bill for 100 from
Mr. Babcock's the eminent jewcler,who
is always selling off in consequence of
Increasing his wonderful stock. 'That
is for a ring obtained some weeks ago.'
'Here it is,' said Percy, looking fond
ly at it. 'A very fine stone.'
And a very fine price.llr. Gower,SIr
said Tabernacle,with a triumphant grin.
'I bought that bill from Mr. Babcock
for a consideration. He did not like to
wait for your money.'
Mr. Percy half rose from his seat, and
'Who authorized you to tamper with
my tradesmen?' he asked, haughtily.
'Why, I'm your best friend,' snigger
ed Tabernacle. 'Go there to-morrow,
and they will trust you again. But
not after that.'
'What do you mean f '
'That you are not worth a penny,Mr.
Gower, Sir you are up to the hilts ;and
that when your uncle dies, which may
not be for long years yet
'I hope so,' said Fercy, piously.
'Well, that's about the cruelst thing
to your creditors you ever said and to
yourself too. Think of the Interest.
Percy was silent. He felt that what
Tabernacle said was true, and yet that
he dared not desire the death of his un
cle, whose continued lease of life was,
however, very unpleasant to him.
'Surely,' he said, after a pause 'you
can not be In earnest, Mr. Tabernacle?
I know you take a great deal of Interest
in my affairs.'
'As to that,' said the lawyer, feeling
the word, though Percy had not Intend
ed It, 'it's very little principal I get, Mr.
Gower. You were quite right when
you said you were about to settle, your
debts first, or marry a fortune, or be a
beggar. Who is she tell me'

But the question was put for a moment.
The soft, insinuating, mean tone of Mr.

tingle, and caused Myra who, in spite
of herself, could not but listen to be
suffused with blushes.
Percy drew himself up, and asked
'Upon what condition?'
The answer came in an eager whis
'That you marry my daughter!'
Myra heard It, and sank upon her
knees in shame.
Percy stared. He did not even know,
nor had cared to inquire, if his solici
tor had a daughter.

twenty thousand Into the bargain you
shall, so help me Heaven! She's as

Justice Scott was yesterday called
upon to adjudicate in a singular case,
the memory of which will remain with
him as long as he lives. The complain
ant is none other than Christine XTls-
son, the renowned songstress, and the
defendant one Charles Theodore Busch,
a German musician of three score
whose heart had been pierced with
Cupid's Bhafts until his aged head had
turned. Mile. Nllsson's complaint
against the senllel over was preferred in
low, sweet tones that thrilled the blush
ing justice, and filled the Essex Market
court-room with music.
"He annoys me much, .your honor,"
said the silver-voiced queen of song.
"He follows me everywhere. If I walk
In the street, he Is at my side; if I en
ter a door he is with me. He foolishly
believes that he loves me, and that I
am essential to his happiness. Please
tell him to give me peace."
While Mile. Xllsson was thus plead
ing, poor love-lorn Busch's eyes follow
ed every movement of her Hps, and his
ears drank In every sound of her mel
lifluous voice. Edging nearer and
nearer to his fair enslaver he seized the
corner of her fur cape, and bearing it
hurriedly to his lips, kissed it repeated
ly In the ecstacy of his adoration.
"He says, your honor," continued
the fair complainant, blushing, "that I
must marry him."
" You shall not be troubled with him
again, mademoiselle," said the Justice,
with a smile. "Mr. Busch, J shall re

Somebody who has suffered from an
excess of gratuitous puffing 'rises to ex
plain' after the following fashion :
'The local columns of a newspaper
are the most valuable to advertiser, be
cause they are the first read by every-
body,and no publisher can give them up
to pufilngthis man's patent mohogany
sausage stuffer or that one's new fan-
gled, double and twisted stump puller,
for nothing and board himself. Publish
ing a newspaper is a legitimate business
and the newspaper man should have
pay for his labor the same as the man
who carries the hod or wields the ham

money,tirae,and a vast deal ot patience
to conduct a newspaper, and no class of
men are expected to do as much for as
little pay as the publisher.
Much of this service.an exchange re
marks, whether valuable or worthless,
arises from thoughtlessness by those
who apply for It. They would not think
of asking a carpenter to work a day or
two for nothing, or expect a grocer to
give them a ham because they had
bought a bushel of potatoes; but In a
printing office it is only, In their estima
tion, a few minutes labor to write 'a
puff,' and it costs no more to put
that in type and publish it than the
same quantity ot matter in a news Item
for which there is no expectation of
special pay. Many, therefore; receive
the favor as a thing of course, and some
even grumble if a notice of them or
their wares is not coupled wtth a direct

else in the same hue of trade. If there

therefore the service should be paid for

disposition. In publlshinggratuitously

practice where it Is often hard to Jlraw
