From Arthur's Home Maguzlne.
Br I B. ARTHUR,
"Motliet! Mother, I snyl"
Tlie lady who was tie wing upon a child's
garment, did not sfrm to lieitr the voice.
"Mother!" Tue lone had jriown im
paiic nt. "Mothet I Mothei ! Moihtsr!" -. .
- And Mow added to an- imperHiiv voice,
were n pair of cunaU ImHile jnrking at the
lady'st Hun. And no nueiiuoit wan con
tained. "What dii you want?" now exclaimed
the mother, hall anirily, as she let her
handtf tall uptn her lap, and looked with
knit biowg upon her li'ile amioyer.
"Can'i 1 go to Aunt Jane's to niortow."
"No,' you cannot. There, now, move
Hway, and don't trouble nieany more."
"Say, Mother! Can't I go to Aunt
Jhm'h lo-uiorrow? - I haven't been there
lor ever so long a time, and 1 want to go
so badly." 1
"Didn't I say nol"' The lady frowned
But the child slill lingered by her
mother, who, being too busy lo attend to
her any hinder, pushed her firmly aside,
and bent down again over her work. Not
three minuies parsed before the ciy,
"Mother!'' was ringing through the
apartment again. As before, there was
no i espouse.
Still no answer.
"I say, Mother, why don't you answer
when 1 fpeak?" ,
An angry .pot was burning upon the
child's f ice, and her tones were anything
"Anna," said the lady, looking up from
her work, and addiewnitf her child in rii
oUended voice, "Do you know to whom
you ate t-peaking?'' -
"Why don't you answer me then?"
"Huah this iimUm! You impudent
little gill; how dare you?"
And there was an upwart movement of
the lady's hand, as it she weie tempted to
infliui a blow. Somewhat frightened at
the threatened consequence, Anna re
treated from her mother, who aain bent
over the sewing in lie! hands. And what
was the work which bo abwbed her at
tention thif she had no ear for her cliild
that the word "moilier," found no (i nick
echo in hei heal I ? We answer, a piece of
elalraie embroidery, denigned for a gar
ment to adorn Hie body of this very child.
There ws lo be a liule one's party at a
neiglibois, and Anna having received an
invitation, her moiher, more in pride than
true auectioti, nu unuertaken to emOiol
i , r , , ,
uer for her a skniaud body to be worn on
i trie OOCstaioll.
The pattern was vsry rich,
and look more time for Us execution than
she had at brsl thought would be re
quired. Many home duties were neglecled for
ihe nuke of this piece of needle work; a
cied home duties, that can never be omit
ted without wrong. The baby, not So
well as usual, had b en permitted to lie
for hour- fretting in its cradle, when it
should have been nestling upon iis moth
er's bosom; and worse than that, the mind
of the chilJ, tor the adornment ol whose
body tit elegantly wrought gnrment was
intended, had received many disfiguring
maiks. them bad been inattention lo her
requests, neglect if her wants, and angry
repulsion when she had iuuudd those
wants loo impatiently. - As the garme t
grew in beau y under the mother's skill
lul hands. Jreiiuliiess, impatience,' anger,
and disobedience were doing their evil
work upon her soul,
; for nearly two whole days, everything
had beeu neglected for (his bit ot vaniiy;
and ihe gieiiieet' aofferera were the chtl-
'-qwirii uuuy ami a una. jet, so arjavniMni
molftor ill her work lliat U hud
"'e omiW m ier,W'U-,. that Slut ftuU
'only a dim pefeeptiuti of her error. Slie
J ot of ooursc, eeoape tbe jar of d-
oord that ran - in -disturbing pulsations
thiough her household, and so her own
spirit lost hourly a measure of self-posses
sion. Light causes disturbed her; little
annoyances fretted Iter beyond control;
even the smallest obstruction in the cur
rent of her thought sent the hot blood to
her cheeks., and temples. Her husband
felt, and was made unhappy by the change
in her temper. Her domestics were
chafed by her impatient way of speaking
to them; and we have already seen some
thing of the effects produced on one of her
children.,.,,.:.,, . , ,!!...
' Little Anna, after being repulsed and
threatened, retired to a distant part of the
room, and, crouching down in the corner
Daoy, alter Having iretteu us Hie cradle tor
hall an hour, lost itself in sleep. .And so
the mother worked on in pace, greatly lo
her snlistaction, the rich flowers growing
into torm and beauty under her skilllul
lingers, and spreading themselves over' lie
gntmenl she was decorating for her child.
And what of that child now? She had
driven her away angrily, a little while be
fore, and sinco that time she had neither
heard her voice, nor the Bound of her loot
step. All at once a thought of Anns came
so distinctly into her consciousness, that
he looked around quickly to see it sLe
were in the room. "' ' ' ' '
"Anna!" she called. But there was no
. "Anna!'' , The silence of the apart
ment gave her heart a strange feeling, and
laying down the garment upon which she
was at woik, sherirose.1
"Anna!" she called again, as her eyes
rested upon the torm of her little one ly
ing upon the floor. Passing over quick! v.
she stooped and caught the child in her
rms. repeating her name over aud over as
she di i so., put Anna was last asleep,
and did hot answer. So she laid her upon
the sola, aud bent over her with a lender,
yearning emotion, al her heart. Ami now
the unusual tednesa of Anna 8 checks at
tracted her attention, and she placed her
hand upon the soft flesh, nervously, li
was above the natural heal. She caught
up oife of the little' hands engeily. Is
burning ' touch sent a shudder of feat
through her bosom. ' '
'Anua. ,dearl Anna!" She laid her
lips close lo the child's ear, and called her
name I'endeily; but . the door of hearing
sleeb had barred against the entrance oi
evn a mother's Voice. And now she re-
menihered with painful dirttiiictiiess, how
she hnd. repulsed and ftpoken wigvily to
the li, tie one, and she saw agxin 1lte look
ot leur mat siiatloweu her lace, as she
tawed her hand threateningly. Tears
cam into her eyes, fillej them, and ran
down over her cheeks. Through this
blinding rain, she sought' lo read lite signs
on Anna's counten uce; but all she could
see there tended only to augment her fears.
I he little brow seemed contracted; theie
w.is a nervous unsteadiness about the lips
and eye-lushes; the breathing was heavy.
and-the chest labored.
"Anna, dear, speak to mother! Speak
to mother, darling!" '
But Anua only moaned and worked her
mouth in a strange, unuunl way.
"Oli, l wish Henry would come home!'1
sobbed the mother to hersell, giving way
mill lurtiier lo the excitement ol alarm.
Th e child is veiyil, lnm sure. Oh,
what can ail her!" .'. - i
There came now the sound of a closint;
door. Then a rnanly tread was heard in
the passage below.
"Father! Henry! Is that you? ' The
moiher called, breathlessly.
"Yes, Ediih. but wlmi is the matter?"
And the husband and father, startled by
her tones, came Imniedly up the s'airs.
"Oh, lleiiry, I'm .-o glad you've come
home," said his wil, as site giasped his
"What has happened?" - His voice was
unsteady, and his face grew sligl tly pale.
"I'm so frig hi Hied about Anna."
"Yes; she's lying in a heavy stupor,
and her skin is like tire; see!" and -lie
drew him lo the sofa upon which the little
girl was It ing. ,
Mr. Lewis stooped over his child, and
laid his hand against her cheek.
"She has a burning fever," saiJ his
wife, i;iiouly. .. '
Mr. Lewis did not reply, but took one
little wrist between his fingers, and
searched for the pulxe. He whs still and
silent for nearly a minute.
"How long has ebe been in this way?"
he inquired, with a betrayal of alarm in
his volte. , ,
"I found her asleep on the floor, just
now, and l. ied to waken her. ' Oh, deal
Henry! what can it be?"
The words scarlei fever were in hei
thought, but she dared not give them ut:
terauce. , : '.
"It may be nothing serious," replied
her husband, "but it will be safest lo call
in the doctor immediately. 1 will carry
her ever to our room. You had beiiei un
dress and place her in bed while I go for
As Mr. Lewis lifted the child, in his
arms, she moaned, and fumbled her hando
about her throat, a if there were a sense
of pain or const rlo. ion there. " ".
"Oh. Henry! go quii kly! ' I'm so dis
tressed!" urged the moiher, as soon 1
Anna was laid upon the bed. "Tell the
doctor, if you find him in, that he must
come immediately. 'Don't let him put
you off wiili a promise to come sovn.-r-Bring
him back with you." "
Mr. Lewis hurrieil away, and Mrs.
Lewis, after nndt'e sing Anna and laving
her in bed, went over to the sitting-room,
from whi-nre there now came the fretting
ciy if baby," who' had awakened from a
brief slumber. ' ' ' " ,; --' i

The physician cime, and Mrs. Lewis
watched eveijr chagiiig expression of his
lace, and huug aiutiously on his wrds.
His replies lb the mothei's questions were
brief, and evidently guarded, while in her
eyes his, coutiteiuice wore ait unusually
serious aspect, y; '
"1 will call hgin to-nyht," said he, on
going away.' :!.y '!:'
How the wot's smote upon her heart.
"Again to qglul" .Then theie was in
deed danger! . ,.
By this time Anna't fever had greatly
increased in violence, and she moaned and
tossed about' restlessly. 'The medicine
left by the tooior did oot seem to make
any impression. There, w as rather an ex
acerbation than an abatemeat of the worst
symptom ' ' '
Towards ten o'clock the doctor called
again,, lie came io with a seiioua, pro
lessional air, and at down by the bedside,
without speaking. After feeling the child's
pulse, lie bent over and examined hei skin.
"Is it scarlet fever DtKiior?" .
Tbe voice of Mrs Lewis was husky and
tremulous. ; .She held he. breath, waiting
for an answer to her question. ;
"It may be only a. mild case of scarlet
rash," replied the doctor. But there was
evasion in the (ones of Ids voice, and the
anxious moiher was not deceived. .,
"Cuniinue tbe medicine aa before.. 1
will see her early in. the morning."

Unhappy motherl All her soul was
tilled wiih terror. Naturally of a tender
and loving nature, her heari had become
bound up in Iter children, am! the thought
of losing litis one, her first-born, pien ed
hor wlih sharpest anguish.
Alas! it this had been nil. bu' never.
for a moment, could she thrust aside the
memory of her unkiiitlness and Deject
of the sharp, angry repulsion with which
she had driven her child away, when, suf
fering from the encroachments ol disease,
and in a state of consequent ir itation oi
mind and body, she had sought her care
And attention. How many limes, dtinni
the next five or six days of anguish and
suspense, did she steal away to some se
cluded place, and, bending tearfully in
prayer, ask thai her child might not be la-
ken from her.
"Oh! spare her. Heavenly Father -
spare her this lime! Do not lake my child
and leave my heart boiue down wiih a
double weight of sorrowdind self-reproval."
1 his was ihe burden of her oli-repeaied
prayer. 1 he nchly embrotdeied garment.
in winch her mind had become so much
interested as to cause her lo forget, for ihe
tine, the real wants of her children, was
hidden away. The sight of it rebuked bet
as wiih stern words.
Rapidly the disease ran its course, and
little Anna wa brought to the brink ot
the river ol'dea li. her white feet bared to
go down into the darkly flowing waters.
And still, Irom the mother s heart, went
up the almost wildly-uttered prayer, "Oh,
spare me my child! bpitre me my child!"
Al last the long suspense was over, the
struggle with disease ended, and the un
conscious 'one lay while and still before
ihe hushed weepers; not still in death, bui
in the calm ot exhaunled nature, tor lite
yet lingeied about the heart, and creLt
along the veins in leeble currents.
"The crisis is past; ihere is hope;"
It was the physician who spoke, bend
ing, as he did so, lo the mother's ear.
She did not start, nor answer, but stood mo
tionless for at. instant, . and then fell for
ward upon the bed, lost for a time to all
that whs pa-sing around her.'
B tck Irom the river ol death, down inlo
tile wnlers of which little Alma's feel were
about passing, came the beloved child to
her mother's eager arms; and as she lay,
in slow convalescence, day alter day, upon
her bosom, the promises of it wiser con
siders, ion of hei in ihe future were over
and over again renewed. And these
promises wm kept. If, at any lime, she
ws lempied id lorget them, memory had
only to lake her back lo these days .and

been, during the same period, a large in

The tendency ol Negro slavery, wher
ever it exists in its lull vigor and purity,
as it does among lite superlative Demo
crats of South Carolina, is to expel all
white popula: ion, except, a small portion
diivcily concerned in the ownership and
mansgement of slaves. This process of
expulsion has been going on in South Car
olina for half a centuty, and iis Democ
racy is proportionally intensified from year

Burou Torlue, about fifteen miles west ol
Vermilionville, where an encampment of
outlaws had been formed, the ringleaders
of which had challenged them to battle.
Accordingly the law and order men ol the
parish, who had 1 ng suffered fiom these
depredalore, wh' had robbed, plundered,
passed 'counterfeit money, jindjnurdei'ed
with impunity, quickly gathered, and

the village of Vermilionville, Marled for
the rendezvous of the outlaws. At 9
A. M., on Saturday, about five hun
dred well mounted men suddenly ap
peared before the entrenched camp of the
boastful defiers of the laws, where they
found them in full foice, with the Bayou
well guarded, and a house in the centci of
their position, loop holed, and otherwise
thoroughly prepared for enduring a siege
or resisiing a storming party.
The flag of their fraternity also floated
defiantly in the breeze, and until the Vig
ilsnts had formed their order of battle, and
unmasked their cannon, all looked as if
the defense would be obstinate and san
guinary. The sight ot the big gun, how
ever, eiruck terror inlo the hardened
hearts of these outlaws, and svuve qui pent
suddenly appeared to animate the warri

Mams Irom each company, io whom the
question was rubmiued whether the
prisoners, notorious evil-doers, should
stifler death or be paddled. By a majoriiy
of two it was decided lo inflict the paddle
punishment, and thirtv-six hundred blows
were equally aoministerea. une tellow

Wells is still alive, but his physician say

about eighteen years of age. I do not

present, who were pledged lo each other,
to lake Head ililo custody, as soon as he
was bioughl outside the prison walls, and

Their rope was prepared and the limb on

on the subject of Slavery and Democracy:
Our readers have had our views of' lhe , v
comparative merits of iheystemg of free ' -'
and slave labor in all their bearings Upon
the material prosperity, intelligence, niorW V
ale, &c, dtc, of the couutry. In no sin
gle respect can slavery have any -claims to .
the fa vui able consideration of enlightened
minds. Free institutions are therelore tie- .
sirable. The free laboring peop't of lhe V
land, botli. North und South, deirtii;! lhe ,:
predominance of fiee territory, and free la-' '
bor principles in our national government. T
They' are" not lor a moment willing'to sub
mil to the new and monstrous dogma, that '
there is no free soil out of lhe free Sti'es,
snd thai all our. migliiy territories are just
as much 6lave soil as South Carolina.
They have been educated by Jefiei son and
the Fathers of the Republic;, the good and
great men who made our Constitution, to
believe that slavery is a local in-titution;
that ii was the crea'ion of local laws, and,
that beyond the limits of the Stales where
it was recognized, it had no. existence.
They knew that Washington, and Jeffer
son, and all the Piesidentsdow" to Pierce,
have recognized the right of Congress,
not only to deolare lhat it did not exist,
but that it should never be tolerated in -the
tetriiories. They have supposed that
our vast possessions were for lhe inherit!
auce of freemen, where free labor could
find a hotne without encountering the dom.
ineerihg insolence of the slave owner, or
the depraving influence of slave labor.
But our modern Democracy has le versed
all this, and has set up a new standard.
Slavery with them is national. It extendi
everywhere, wiibin the limi'-s of tle fede;
rd Coi sti'ut on. Freedom has become
sectional. It exists only by virtue of lo
cal law. The influence of the general gov
ernment, as we have all eeen in Kansas,
has been constantly, and openly exerted to
plant slavery, and to drive out and exter
uiinaie free labor. No man of ordinary
intelligence is ignorant of this fact. The
leading men of tbe party have now two dar
ling belli ms, which tiiey are pressing upon .
the country: the eoao ment of a slave code
for the Te i ri lories, by the general govern
ment, and the repeal of laws against the
African slave trade.
Both of there propositions are the logictl
and inevitable icnulis of the position which .
i list party has assumed by sujiaiiiii.g the
dncirines of the Died Scott dechiun.
Theie is no escape from ihem.'" They are
as certain as fate, unless we can bring (he

One of the largest audiences that ever '

calls a Bioad Church. Laugh'er.

N.me months ago a slave-woman from
Virginia came to this congregation to plead
tor the purchase of her own freedom and
of her little children. Mr Beecher s'a'ed
the case, it rid ihreu bundled dollars were

dollars mote weie needed. What should

contributions of the congregation as they

the Church on Brooklyn Heights reached

and ihe church across the liver reached
