Keep Out cf Debt.' . , , t
Debt is the severest task-master, A per
son in debt is a doomed man. He is stun
ned and despised; -the very dogs bark at
him as be passes along; ; ' i-
A man in debt feels like an escaped oul-
law a villain of the first magnitude, and
what is worse, he feels that there is no help
for him. He does not dare to ask a favor,
or refuse to bow and smile at his indepen
dent neighbor. If yen are out of debt, keep
clear of its meshes.' - "! ": -1
You had better do anything, dig clams
or peddle books, stub boards or 'write eer-
mons, make perpetual motions or edit a
newspaper, do anything rather than fall in
debt.; Shun the monster as you, would
shun a constable, the devil, and a deputy
tax collector. Debt spreads the sky in

beanty and bloom to moulds and cobwebs,
drives health from the cheek, peace from
the heart, and makes the world a vast char
nel ha.use of wasting sinews, broken bones
and eyeless skulls, Who would not keep
out of debt? . If you have any self-respect,
hope for aa atom of peace or desire one mo

Did you ever see an engine try to start
a train of cars? How it puffed and groaned
and wheezed, just as if the iron horse had
hardly strength enough to move such a
ponderous load! But when he gets fairly
under way he goes on merrily for miles and
miles as if he loved to do it, giving now and
then a defiant snort, as much as to say,
"Who says I can't draw a heavy load?"
But if he once fairly stops then there is al
the old trouble to start again.
Did you ever take a bath on a cold morn-
ino? The water looks so clear and chilly
that you have a good mind to let it alone
just this once, and wash when the weather
is milder. The first touch stings like ice;
you shudder and start back as if you were
freezing. Bat you don't freeze, and as
soon as you begin to rub yourself with a
course towel vou are all in a clow. Your
cheeks are red, and your eyes are bright,
and vou are much warmer than when you
stood shivering, thinking, "I can't do it."
Does it seem very early sometimes when
the breakfast bell rings in the morning?

You are very warm and very sleepy, and
the bed seems a much more desirable place
than it did last night, when you were so
unwilling to go to it. Just now you are on
the most intimate term3 with the blankets,
and you can't bear the idea of parting.
You cannot see to dress, for your eyes are
closed, and it seems very hard to get them
open. But in a few minutes they are wide

so tempting now: you go by it without a

You see from these facts that beginnings
are often hard. The French say, "It is tho
first step that costs." They mean that it
is much harder to begin than to keep on,
harder to do a thing the first time than the
second time. But no good job was ever
done without beginning. Every happy day
begins with getting up, every clean boy
has a bath, every excursion train starts
with a strain and puff. Every hive of hon

somebody would have been glad to spend;
every noble man was once a brave boy who

easier and more pleasant to do wrong. Per

Testimonial to Capt. Hatthew F. Maury
On the evening of the 4th instant about
one hundred and thirty gentlemen assem
bled at Willis Rooms, London, on the oc
casion of a banquet arid testimonial to
Captain M. F. Maury, late of the Confeder
ate navy, the object of this tribute being to
make a suitable public recognition of the
brilliant services conferred by that officer
on the causa of maritime science. Sir John
Parkington, M. P., presided, and amon
those present were most of the representa
tives of foreign powers, and a great num
ber of distinguished British naval officers
and men of science. We take the following
account of the proceedings from the London
Dally JTetcs; -
After the usual toasts, followed by that
of "The Diplomatic Corps," the chairman
proceeded to present the testimonials. In
doing so, addressing the gallant Captain

then traced the history of his scientific ais- ;
coyeries, and referred to the practical ad-.;
vantages which the public were now deriv
ing from them. In the voyage of, a ship
from England to India or China, there was,
he observed, a saving of 256.--
What then must be the annual aggregate
saving on thevoyages of all the ships of
this country? It was when Captain Maury s
fame was at its heiarht that there broke out
the unfortunate civil war between the North
and South a war in .whicb, being a South;
erner by birth', he took the part worthy of
his character and career. TLoud cheers.J
He then adverted to the fact that after
the war had terminated tl ga'laut Captain
W23 invited by the Grand Duke Constantine
to take up his abode in Russia, and by
Prince Napoleon to accept a home in France.
The testimonial now to be presented com
menced, about a year ago. Holland sub
scribed about 1,000, Russia sent 1,000,
and a large amount was also collected, in
this country. And he now, in the name of
England of Europe and the civilized. world,
has to' request Captain-Maury to accept a
testimonial, considerably .. exceeding in
amount three thousand guineas, as a recog
nition of esteem, admiration and gratitude.
Great cheering. , . r, . ;
. He concluded by reading an address ex
pressive of the object of the presentation,
and having handed the money to the guest
of the evening. in a silver casket, he pro
posed s his health,; which . was drank with
three times three, amid great enthusiasm.
. Captain Maury commenced by repudi-.
ating the notion that he was deserving such
an acknowledgement. Forty years ago, he
said, it was his good fortune to enter on a
field of discovery in which the harvest was
ready at hand. . Very soon a fleet scattered
all over the world was engaged in observing
certain phenomena of the field and air; and
at a very email cost ships of all nations
were converted into temples ; of science. 0f fidelity.. IQ Pompeii as in other coun

Among the remaining toasts was ."Our

. . -Tne Bible. .... : ;,-.
The Bible ; is the only book which. God
has ever sent, the only one He will ever
send into thi3 world. All other books are
frail and transient as time, since they are
only the registers of time; but the Bible is
durable as eternity, for its pages are the
, l-L ?1 All -il 1
records of eternity. All other works are
weak and imperfect, like their author, man;
but the Bible is replete with infinite power
and perfection, like its usefulness and in
fluence; but the Bible came forth conquer
ing and to conquer.
The Bible only of all the myriads of
books the world has seen, is equally inter
esting and important to all mankind. Its
tidings, whether of peace or of woe, are the
same to the poor, the ignorant and the
weak, as to the rich, the vrise and the
powerful. Among the most remarkable of
iia auriouws is jusuce, iorn iuuwwuu
impartial eyes on kings and on slaves, on
the chief and the soldier, on philosopher
and on peasant, on the eloquent and the
dumb. From all, it exacts the same obe-
dience to its commandments, promising to
the good reward of their loyalty, but de-
nouneing to the evil the awful consequences
Of their rebellion.
Nor are the purity and the holiness, the
wisdom and the benevolence of the Scrip-
tures less conspicuous. In vain may we
look elsewhere for true models of character,
for the models cf the husband and the wife,
the parent and the child, the patriot and the
scholar, the philanthropist and the chris
tian, the private citizen and the ruler of the
nation. Whatever shall be their respective
lots, whether poverty or wealth, prosperity
or adversity, social influence or solitary sta
tion, the Bible is the only fountain of truth
their only source of virtue and greatness,
of honor and felicity
Here, then, let us repose our trust here
et us look for our beacon of safety, and,
whether sunshine or gloom, the storm or
the calm, the beauty and wealth of spring.

"I will now glance at the state of feeling
in the South. When we consider what they
suffered, who they were that suffered; when
I consider where they started from and
where they brought up, when I consider the
whole history of the state of public feeling.
South is far more peaceful than we could
expect. It is bad enough, but is far better
than we could expect. Letter writers and
travelers say a 'reconstructed South; a nice
condition the South is in to be reconstruct
ed. They are our bitter enemies; they
gnash their teeth,' etc.
"I wonder if you think that after you
soundly whip a man that he is going to

General Lee when he surrendered should
have thrown his hands around General
Grant's neck and thanked him for whipping
him and compelling him to surrender? or
that General Johnston 6hould have regarded
Sherman as his benefactor? And should
the South go upon its knees when it sees a
Yankee, and eay 'God bless you, Yankee,
for all you have done for me?' These men
that talk thus do not like the state of feel
ing at the South. The Yankees tell ua
that the South is not fit to beTeconstructed.
If you do not take the South in till she heals
of her wounds, you will not take her in for
a long time to come. Human nature does
not run this way. It is not a question of
abstract justice; it is a practical question,
and you must decide according to known
law and human nature.
I know the South will feel sore. They
believed in their cause; they were defeated,
and a greater disaster could not befall them.
They lost everything deep gloom over
hangs them, and profound sorrow oppres
ses them, and they are expected to gire
evidence of thankfulness and joy. They
must first have the hand of kindness stretch
ed to them. You must give them new
hopes. New business will lead them to for

old tears. Kindness and business, that is
what they want.
