BY JAMES G. PERCIVAL. A Pleasing Sketch.
A Peep at the Old and New Generation.
—An Off-Hand Sketch.
Vi'c often exclaim, as we take some
new step in st-iciitKio nr meclianieal pro- ;

astonished, not without cause. We feel
proud of our work, and would gladly in
vito our gray-hairod sires, evc;i from
their graves, to witness the creations of
our progressive genius.
It chanced once, that, without the per
formance of any miracle of ghost-raising, 1
I had the satisfaction of enjoying almost
Bueh a scene. I feel, indeed, some dilli
deneo in relating tho incident, for fear
of suiTcrintj under tho imputation of ir
reverence toward old age; but its rare
ness, together with its half philosophical
tendency, must excuse me.
It was Borne years ;igo I took passage
on tho steamer llhode Island, bound
from New York up the .Sound. Among
the passengers in the upper saloon, I
noticed a very nged man, infirm with
years; his hair, what little there was left.
was as white as wool; lus tall, bony j
framo was bent under tho loads of time, j
He was, as I learned, a soldier of tho '
l'evolntion, and he lacked but two or
three years of tho period from which he
could look back and count a century.
"All of which he saw, and part of which he
His hoina was somewhere near Provi
dence, It. I.; a desiro to secenec moro a
daughter, who had uldo reached and pass
ed the allotted yours of man's existence,
led him to make a tedious journey by
land to tho vicinity of New York; re
turning, ho had been induced by his
grandson, who accompanied him, to take
passage on one of thoso wondrous nov
elties, which ho had never before seen
a child of Fulton's genius.
Of course, everything astonished tho
old man. He was iu a new world. He
Rat upou one of tho easy seats, receiving
explanations of tho Tarious novelties
from his grandson, when ho suddenly in

"It is the engiiu!.' '
'Tlio engine. What is that?"
"It is the machinery which propels
"Well, I want to sec it," said tho old
man; and as he insisted, the grandson
Bupported his tottering frame to a posi
tion whero he could see thu mighty work
ing uf tho machinery. This seemed to
delight tuoro than to nwe him; so, pre
sently, ho began poking his crutch at the
heavy walking beams, us they made their
"Say, old friend," called out tho engi
neer, "you had better not touch that!-'
Tho old man was a little deaf; ho did
not huar. Tho engineer repeated his
''Oh', I'll bo careful," ho replied in a
kindly voi' - "I will not hurt your ma
chine." I f it had been a glass bubblo ho
was puuehing tit nnd promising not to
Lrcnk, ho could not have spoken with a
more lender assurance, to disarm tho
tears of the engineer, as to tho bafety of
tho luihty engine.
Satisfied, nflcr ft while, with viewin"!
this, the two returned to the saloon, nnd
the old man resumed his sent. The
son went on to i no end, ana lran k a eiass
oi water, nur, am nor tiunk to filler tiny
to the sire, who, instead of asking for a
glass, rose and tottered to the spot whero
tho water was placed. Directly behind
was a largo pier glass, which his dim
vision did not point nut to him. Ilut ns
the old man raised the tumbler to his
lips, his eye encountered another vener
able form, which seemed to bo bowing
be fire him. Instantly towering the
tumbler, he stretched out one withered
hand toward the figure, with a cordial
"How d'ye do," from his tongue. "It
seems," he added, in tho tremulous, pip
ing tones of age, "it seems, my friend,
as if I had seen you somewhere before."
And ho slill stretched out his hand till
it touched the mirror. He looked blank
enough a moment but he soon compre
hended the state of the case, and a pale
smile came over Ins countenance. J he
passenger could not resi.-t a 'uflaw,
though out of respect they would have
suppressed it, had they been able.
Tho venerable centenarian soon went
to his berth, not. without complaints that
such sleeping arrangements were as bad
as camp lircs. But he was soon asleep,
At Stonington thoy wero to tako the
cars; the old man was with great difficul
ty aroused when tho boat reached that
place ho insisting that it was not day.
But he was partly made to understand
that tho servants f steam did not wait
for the sun's rising, and was finally
got into the cars. There ho again fell
into a doze; but as tho grey streaks of
the morning grew brighter, ho awoke
enough to look out of the car window.
All the novelties he had seen confused
him; he dreamed that ho was still on the

must be pretty near shore now, I can see
Here was a new wonder; he had to
learn that for his benefit, the iron horse
had taken the place of the steam water
craft, and was whisking him with double
speed over the land.
"Lewis,'' exclaimed the old man again,
ns they reached the station, "I feel as if
a drop of gin would do me good; can
you find .some?"
Lewis ns.-.urcd him with such alacrity
that it would be done, that the gramlsire
suspected him, and impressively added:
"Lewis, it is a bad habit to drink gin;
an old soldier like mo may do it, as I
have for forty years, but you youngsters
(Lewis was at least forty) should not get,
into the habit, it is very bad for you I
hope you won't do it," he continued sol
emnly. I5ut wo fear the precept was lost upon
Lewis; he prepared to follow his grand
l'orluitou.-ly, my course in the stage
was the same as that of the old gentle
man; after a short ride, he was as-isted
to alight, and, bowing kindly to us all, he
left us. J'ut, :is he turned towards his
little cottage home
I thought I saw a
tear gather in his eye, and in tremulous
tones he exclaimed:
"Thank (led! I am home again; my
next journey will be to tho rrnvr!"

moisture in my own eyes, as tho coach

Dr. Frankliu was my only point of
resemblance to that illustrious man
when he worked at his early culling
in London, an aquatic tho term which
his comrades applied to designate him
as a water-drinker. 1 also drank water,
and nothing stronger, in the early part

As this allusion touches a point at
which a word might bo useful to other
young men desirous to advance them
selves in life, and to havo good health in
old age, I will go on to say that, at that
timo and in tho South, it was the custom
in every houso to offer something to
drink to all visitors evon boys; and that
excuses wero no defense for thoso who
would refuse. Pressure, importunity,
custom, broke down all excuses, and it
bceamo necessary to opposo will whero
reason was unavailing; bo I made u law
for myself that I would drink nothing
until I should bo in tho declino of life,
and might need it; and resolutely plead
ing that law, I uf'Lcrwards escaped im
portunity. It was tho first btand, "soli
tary and alone," that I ever made; but
not the last. I was young enough, and
silly enough, at that time, to suppose
that this declino would como upon mo
at thirty; and so fixed that ago as tho
limit for my law. When thirty came,
did not feel the decline, and extended
tho time; and eventually relaxed into
temperajieo, and have remained at that
point ever since. Thus, tho first half
of my life was abstinent tho second
half, temperate, and to these conditions

bodily vigor I may now have, find what

In ITT."), Washington, then n young
man twenty-two years of ago, was sta
tioned wi'h his regiment at Alexandria.
At this time an election for public olli
ccrs took place, nnd tho contest between
tho candidates became exciting nnd se
vere. A disnuto took place bi t ween Mr.
T'ayne and Washington, in which the
latter (an occurrence very uncommon
with him) became warm, nnd said some
thing which gave .Mr. I'ayno so much
ellense that he struck Washington, and
knocked him down. Instead of Hying in
to a passion,nnd vending him a challenge
to fight a duel, as was expected, Wash
ington, upon mature reflection, finding
he had been the nressor, resolved to
j nsk pardon of Mr. I'ayno ein tho mor
row. Accordingly ho met Mr. Payne
I the next day, and extended his hand iu
a friendly manner:
i "Mr. I'ayno," said lie, "to err is na
Iture; to rectify error is glory. I find I
j was wrong yesterday, but I wish to be
right to-day. You had some satisfaction
yesterday, anil if you think that was
sufficient, hero is my hand, let us bo
! friends." It is hardly necessary to state
that ever afterwards they wero so.'
Would persons who think it horn, roll
to fihf, bo likely to approve of (leneral
Washington's course, as given in the
Sorrow for the Dead.
Tho sorrow tor the dead is tho only
sorrow from which we refuse to bo di
vorced. Uvcry other wound we seek to
heal, every other afllietion to forget; but
this wound we consider a duty to keep
open; this afllietion wo cherish and
brood over in solitude. Whore is the
mother who would willingly forget, the
infant that perished like a blossom from
her arms, though every recollection is a
pang? Where is the child that would
forget the most tender of parents, though
to remember be to lament.
Who, even in the hour of ntrnny.
would forgot the friend over whom he
mourns? Who, even when the tomb is
closing upon the remains eif her he
most loved when lie feels his heart, ns
it were, crushed in the closing of its
portals would accept of consolation
that trust be bought by forgotl'iilness?
No, the love which survives the tomb
is otie of the noblest attributes of the
soul. If it has its woes it has also it
delights; and when the overwhelming
burst of grief is calmed into the gentle
tear of recollection, when the sudden
anguish and tho convulsive agony over
the present ruins of all that we most
loved is softened away into pensive med
itation on all that it wa.5 in the days of
its loveliness, who would root out such
a sorrow from the heart? Though it
may sometimes throw a passing cloud
over tho bright hours of g.iietv, or
spread a deeper sadness over the hour
of gloom, yet, who would exchange it,
even for the song of pleasure or the
burst of revelry?
No, there is a voice from the tomb
'sweeter than song. There N a remem
brance of the dead to which we turn
even from the charms of the living.
Oh! the grave! the grive! It buries
every error, covers every defect, exting
uishes every resentment! From its
peaceful bosom spring none but fond
regrets and tender recollections. Who
can look down even upon the grave of
an enemy, and not feel a compunctious
throb that ho should ever have warred
with the poor handful of earth that lies
Put the grave of those we loved
what a place tor meditation! There it
is that wo call up in long review the
whole history of virtue and gentleness,
and the thousand endearments lavished
upon us almost unheeded iu the daily
intercourse ot intimacy; there is it that
wo dwell upon tho tenderness, the sol
emn, awful tenderness of tho parting
scene, the bed of death, with all its sti
fled grief, its noiseless attendance, its
mute, watchful assiduities.
The last testimonial of expiring love!
the lecble, lluUering, thrilling on! how
thrilling! pressure of tho hand! The
faint, faltering accents, struggling in
death to givo ono moro assurance of
affection! Tho last fond look of the
glazing eyo turning upon us from the
threshold of cxisttueol Ay, go to tli
grave of buried love, and meditate!
There settle the account with thy con
science for every past benefit uni'Cijuite.d,
every past endearment unregarded, ot
that departed being, who can never
return to be soothed by ihy contrition
If thou art a child, and hast ever add
cd a Borrow to the soul, or a furrow to the
silver brow of an affectionate parent;
if thou art a husband, and hast ever
caused tho fond bosom that ventured its
whole happiness in thy arms, to doubt
for ono moment of thy kindness or thy
truth; if thou art a friend, and hast
ever wronired in thought, or word or
deed, the spirit that gonerously confided
in thee; it thou art a lover, ana Jin
ever given ono unmerited pang to that
true heart which now lies cold and still
beneath thy feet; then bo sure that ev
ery unkind look, every ungracious word,
every ungentle action, will come throng
ing back upon the memory, and knock
dolefully tit the soul; then be sure that
thou wilt lie down sorrowing and re
pentant in tho grave, and utter tho un
heard groan, and pour tho unavailing
tear, more deep, mora bitter, because
urihearl and unavailing.
Then weave tho chnplct of flowers,
and strew tho beauties of nature about
tho grare; consolo thy broken spirit, if
thou canst, with thoso tender Sot futil

As for a little more money nnd a little
more lime, why 'tis ten to ono if cither
one or the other would make you a whit
happier. If ynti had more time, it
would be sure to hang heavily. It is the
working man who is the happy man. -Man
was made to be active, and he is
never so hrippy ns when ho is so. It is
the idle man vtho is the miserable man.
And, as f'..r money, don't you remember
the old paying, "Fiiough is good as a
feast?" Money never made a man hap
py yet, n i . r will it. There is nothing in
its nature to produeo hpppinc.-'s. The
more a man has, the more lie wants, and
in stead of (1 Hi ng ft vacuum, it makes one.
If it satisfies one want, it, doubles and
trebles that want, another Way. Tint

There is .scarcely any lot so lev;, but
there is something in it to satisfy the
man whom it has befallen; Providence

some cordial drops, some good circum

sufficient for the purposo he wants them

The Worthlessness of Gold.
It is stilted by many of the survivors
of the Central America's passengers
that there is seldom so huge an
amount of money owned by passengers
as was the case of those who came by
the Central America. Many were per
sons of largo means, and jhfro were
very few whose immediate wealth did
not, amount to hundreds, while mjtnhors
reckoned their gold by thousands ef
dollars. The greatest portion of the
passengers were returned tuiners, some
coming hither to invest the capital they
had realized, in hopes to live a life of
greater ease as tho result of their indus
try, and others to fret their families an 1
once more go to the land of gold. Uut

them to their death. Full purses, con

lying untouched on sofas. (.rpet bags

essary to practice economy, and as a sam
