When one whose humane impilses
are more generous thun his f6oiiues
is moved to compassion by some par
ticular instance of suffering poverty,
it 'ia not unusual for him to regret that
his means are inadequate for the aull
est practictal expression of his sym
pathy, and feel sure that if they were
the least bit largerhis charities would
be as frequent as his opportunity.
In some cases the feeling finally takes
the foitM of a definite resolution, that
if hJis ,peciaiory in 4 ev8er
shall be devoted yearly and systemati
cally to the needs of others. Thus do
the kindest natures temlporize, on oc
casions, with their noblest inclinations;
not realizing that the attempt to defer
the act of benificence until circum
stances iuay render it less sacrificial
of self will be likeiy to maintain itself
by as good argument through every
a sc,:n.ding degree of fortune, until it
"has become the pretext of all that is
miserly and pitiless. Some exceptional
characters, however, do seem to carry
into their prosperity the generous re
solves of earlier inability, and a story
like the following is as pleasant in its
illustration of such characteristics as
in its more general moral element.
Twenty-five years ago a young phy
sician named Wieting, of Syracuse,
New York, was just beginning to reap
commensurate reward for a previous
career of self-denying study, unpaid
industry, and needy endurance-har
ing developed an ability as a profes
sional lecturer by which both reputa
tion and profit were coming to him
rapidly. A part of the gratification
he experienced from this rise in life
was in the thought that it would en
able him, possibly, to help some "for
lorn and shipwrecked brother;" wher
ever he went his heart and hand were
ready for generous deeds, and in ad
dressing an audience he was quick to
discern iu it any apparently ~i)or stu
ldent to whose suplpositious case might
be addressed words of cheer and sym
l)itring a series of lectures oni physi
ology and the laws of health at Quin
cy, Massachusetts, in the winter of
184., he noticed amongst the regular
attendants a 1 le-faced, poorly-attired,
and sirrgul:hrly inltelectnui locking

Fromi Quincy the iectur:r went with
his course to .i'iymuntih, in the same
State, aw! when there, again the
strapnge youth alhpeared as one of his
aujditors. Ile determined to ascertain
who hle was, but betore he could take
the ordinary steps to such end the
faithful follower indertook his own in
After the lecture ne evening the
youthful stranger sought" the doctor
on the platform, and, giving his name
as W\. Z. Wright, asked the privilege
of a brief conversation. Hie was, he
said a poor Massachusetts boy, not yet
of age, without relatives or friends,
who felt in himself a possibility of
great things and an irresistible inspir
ation to find some one who had the
mind and means to assist. Accident
had led him to attend the first lecture
in Quincy, when, at first sight of the
lecturer's face, he had been impressed
with a sense of a peculiar natural sym
pathy between them. Aside fro.the
matter of the scientific discourse the
speaker's personality had exercised
over him. a magnetism not to be either
described or resisted, so that he had
been impelled to follow to Plymouth.
It was his final conviction that the
stranger so influencing him could be
no other than the great friend whom
his needs had instigated him to06ok
for, and in this belief he now wished
to submit a certain proposition. The
Califorhia gold fever had just broken
out; he felt absolutely sure that if he
could go out as miner it would be to
certain riches and his proposal was
that, in consideration of ieeiving half
of the results of the golden venture,
the lecturer should supply him with a
pecuniary outfit to the extent of $1,
000 f
" I shall surely succeed!" 'concluded
the youth, with singular earnestness
of manner. "Only lend me the -sum

than reason, Doetor Wietinig felt sure
that his generosity in so trusting a
stranger and a boy had not been fool
ishl-sure that he and Wright had
been predestined to a .Mutually bene
lcent ao tion, a4L ;that the sct
in two years he received from his ab
sent debtor frol varying addresses in
the California ntines noless than $5,000
in gold.
Writing at last to say that he was
already munificently overpaid for his
benefaction, and to release his grate
fiul correspondent from all possible fu
ture obligation, he was answered that
the contract for the half of all mining
gains still held good and should never
)e foregone.
" The obligation is as much with my
Maker as you," wrote the Californian,
" and I insist upon paying according
to my agreement."
So, at intervals of months, from year
to year, but no longer with places of
address given; the overwhelmed bene
factor was the recipiei t of golden
shipments, until 1862 the sums which
had been'thus sent amounted to near
ly $40,000 in coin.
Soon after these splendid figures
hadeen reached there ca:te another
surprise. The voluntary debtor for
life wrote that he was about entering
a business enterprise requiring $30,000(h
more capital than he had at command,
and begged his friend to lend him

THE creditors of Horace B. Claflin
& Co. met, bn Monday, 4nd founld the
.assets of the firm to be $22,509,000,
and their liabilities $15,584,000. This
favorable showing induced the credi
tors to give the firm four and ahalf
months' more time, after which pay
ments should be mntde menthly. This
enables the firm to go on with its bus
iness. The determination of the mer
chants to support Mr. Claiffl may be
due partially to their grateful remem
brance of the honorable course of his
house in 185P: At that time, Claflin,
Mellen & Co. were obliged to suspend,
but finally agreed to give their notes
for 70 per cent., running from thence
to six months, and after that to pay
the other 30 per cent., if possible.
The firm not onlypaid the 30 per cent.
with interestrbut Mr. Claflin hunted
up the original holders of the paper,
and reimbursed them for any sacrifice
to which they might have been sub
jected by its sale. He is4said to have
paid $240,000 in this waf more than
was required in law and honor.

Two boys were in a school-room alone
together, when some fireworks, con
trary to the master's express prohibi
tion, exploded. The one boy denied
it; the other, Bonnie Christie, would
neither admit nor deny it, and was se.
verely flogged for his obstinacy.
When the boys got alone again,
"Why didn't you deny it?" asked
the real delinquent.
"Because there were only we two,
and one of us mast have lied," said
"Then why not say 1did it ?"
"Because you said you didn't, an I
would spjre the liar."
The boy's heart melted--Bouiei's
moral gallantry subdued him. ,
When school resumed, the young.
rogue marched up to the master's desk
and said: " Please, sir, I can't bear
to be a liar-I let off the squibs," and
burst into tears.
The master's eye glistened on the
self-accuser, and the unmerited pun

Jefferson's final release from public
life, after a nearly continuous service
of f )rty-for year~ I now at hand.
During the last years M'isPrcsidency
jbe had lost, in some degree, the "run"
of his private aflairs, a fhet which any
one will understand who has ever been
absorbed for a longtime ih. concerns of
magnitude and difficulty; not personal.
Every one who has ever pit his whole
heart into wfjting & book, or conduct
ing a periodical, understands it. Gro
oeries elude the sweep -of vision that
takes in all the affairs and intefest of
kgrat mentrrYwEl" ubject;"
and ho man can easily subside from
the triumph of an important measure
or the rapture of a "good number," to
that exact consideration which month
ly accounts demand. Little by little
the mind floats away from all that de
tail; until, at last, a kind of real ina
bility to grasp it takes the place of
former vigilant attention, which is only
another way of saying that a Presi,
dent should be, if convenient, a mar
ried man. A few months before his
retirement, it occurred to him to look
into his own affairs and see how he
was coming out on the 4th of March,
1809. To his consternation and hor
ror, he found that there would he a
serious deficit. His plantation had
only yielded four or five thousand dol
lars a year, at the best, but the em
bargo, by prevenTng the exportation
of tobacco, had cut his private income
down two-thirds. "Nothing," he wrote
to his merchant in Richmond, "had
been more fixed than my determina
tion to keep my expenses here within
the limits of my salary, and I a ad
great confidence that I had done so.
Having, however, trusted to rough es
timates by my head, and not being
sufficiently apprised of the outstand
ing accounts, I find, on a review of my
affairs as they will stand on the 3d of
Mxearch, that I shall be three or fTur
months' salary behind-hand. In ordi
nary cases this degree of arrearage
w..uld not be se, ious, but on the. scale
of the establishment here, it amounts
to seven or eight thousand dollars,
which, being to come out of my private
funds, will be felt by them sensibly."
iHe requests his correspondent to ar
range a loan for him at a IRichmond
banik, and urges him to lose no time.
-.:1"Ine I have become sensible of this
fore must solicit as much urgency in
the negotiation as the case will admit.
My intervening nights will be almost
sleepless, as nothing could be more
distressing to me than to leave debts
here unpaid, if indeed I should be al
lowed to depart with tliem unpaid, of
which I amn by no means certain."
Such is the price, or rather a very
small part of the price, which citizens
of the United States have often had
to pay for the privilege of serving
their country. The privilege is worth,
the price; but it is not safe to put tire
price so high that only a very great or
a very little man can find his account
in paying it. Poverty and abuse-a
Tweed will undertakes city on those
terms. So will a Jefferson. But Jeffer
sons do not grow on every bush, and
Tweeds can be had on most wharves
of any extent. The loan was effected,
however, and Mr. Jefferson was thus
enabled to get home toMon icello with
out danger of being arrested for debt
upon the suit of a federalist with a taste
for sensation.-[Parton in Atlantic.

CoIN IS Cl uc LAr, TION.-Accurding
to the annual report of the Director of
the Mint, the whole amount of gold
coined in the country is estimated at
$135,000,000, and tihe amount of silver
coin at $5,000,000. This in circulation
principally in California, Oregon, Ne
vada, Idaho, Arizona and Texas. As
the report closes with the year ending
June 30th, no account could be takez%
of the increase of coin since that date.
Five miillions of silver is rather a small
sum for displacing forty millions of
fractional currency. It is possible that
there has been an increase of gold and
silver coin since the end of June, of
ten millions, bringing the specie re
sources up to $150,000,000. This is the
best showing that can be made in con
trast with the great volume of paper
IT may seem strange, but it is never
the less true, that alcohol, regularly
applied to a thrifty farmer's stomach,
will remove the boards from the fences,
let cattle into crops, kill ris fruit trees,
mortgage his farm, and sow his fields
with wild oats' arid thistles. It will
take ilie paint off his building, break
the glass out of the windows and fill
them with rags. It will take the gloss
from his clothes and the, polish from
his manners, subdue his reason arouse
his passions, bring sorrow and disgrace
upon his family, and topple him into a
drunkard's grave. It will do this to
the artisan and the capitalist, the mat
ron and the maiden, as well as the
farmer, for, in its deadly ertnit too the
human race, alcohol is no respecter of

The Icst IBar.Story of the Sensed;
The Roseburg. (Oregon) Plain Dealer
relates: A correspondent writing from
Canyonville sends us the following fitl
teresting incident, which occurred near
that place: About ten days sinoe
Henry Bland and his, wife, ot Can
yonville Ptecindlt, ienit into the moun
tains to look after their sheep. When
about three miles from home his 1.;d
dobgs got after a bear, anld after a as
vere ch ase su cc ed iu cowpelaQig the
%bear to el~bi a free. A .lut the tirqo
that Mr. Bland and his wife reached
the foot of the tree, another ferocious
bear pr+t in an appearance and say,
agely attacked the dogs in the imiii'.
diate presence of Mr. and Mrs. Bland.
The fight now became animated and
fiuious, dogs and bear rolling over
each other in the death of struggle
down a steer mountain into the can
yon below. Bland was armed with a
HIenry rifle, but dared not shoot for
fear of killing his dogs. Now came
the questlon how to rescue the dogs j
only t'.;o cartridges were in the rifle,
and these bad to be used to the best
advantage. Mrs. Bland urged her
hiusbandu to go to the dogs, while she,
alone and munarmed, undertook to keep
ihe ferocious mollister up the tree. He
:started down into the canyon to where
the c(nflict was raging, gtiided by th6
gro cI.s and yelps of the dogs and bear.
H.e arrived not a moment too soon, for
Biuin was evidently getting the best
of it, a Jd would only be pacified by
the last shot from the now empty rifle1
It was dark when Bland returned
to his wif, at the foot of the tree. The
situation was anything but flattering:
The empty rifle was of but little usT
and upon the determination of Mrs.
Bland to sit up with the bear, he
:t-ar'ted for home fir more ammunitioii.
The lady being reinforced by bleeding
dogs now f-l t that she was mistress of
the situation. With no fire, far frog
home, in. tLoe midst of craggy moun.
tains, this irutomitab!e lady dared to
hold at bfIy one of the most ferocious
monsters of the forest. The bear, r.p
liiin his iew home, determined to do
e, :'n! the tree, but our heroine, with a
stick and the barking of the dogs, comn
pelled Bruin to tqk } sqj rswan
'wer limb, with eyebvlls of fire hd
stared at. the scene below; but our
huntress was not dismayed by the
presence of her horrible companion,
but stood guiard until about 10 o'clock
when her husband and another mart
came to her assistance. She then
start(ed for home through the deep can
yous and gorges of the mountains en
tirely alone, and it was midnight when
she safely arrived at her own dwelling
The next morning, as soon as it was
sufficiently light, the bear was shot.

those known as the cinnamon variety7
We wondered i, our youthful day@
how some men could subsist with so
little sleep. We knew bakers who rose
every morning at 4 a. m:, notwith
standing they went tO bed at 4.1 p. my.
and had thus only five hours' sleep out
cf twenty-four. Later we noticed that
many men slept only sit hours, and
that this amount of sleep was fully
sufficient for plowmen or bricklayeisX
or other men who had no exhaustion
but that produced by manual abor,
and the sooner he took it after his ls
bor was over the better it was for hin;
But we found also that for men whose
labor is mental, the stress of work is
on the brain and nervous system, and,
for him who is tired in the eveninW
with a day of mental application,
neither early to bed or early to rise is
wholesome. He needs letting down tq
the level of repose. The longer the'
interval between the active use of the=
brain and his retirement to bed, the'
better his chance of sleep and re@fre
ment. To him- an hours' sleep after
midnight is probably as good as tw&
hours before it, and even then-his sleep
will not so completely and quickly
restore, him as it will his neighbor Whar
is physically tired. Hea must not ouly1
go to bed later, but lie loIbi . His
best sleep probably lies i. tIe 4eib'
morning hours, when all the IArVoti
excitement has passed away, -and he is
ii absolute rest. The factsis, that a
life becomes concentrated and its purt
silts more eager, short sleep and early
rising become impossible. We takw
more sleep than oua ancesors-we,
take more because we vant more- and
men whose occupation is maely.6na
work should be careftU to secure a su
icient time of rest,. huger in' propor
tion as their labor is more intenise,and'
also longer when they grow older, -as
