. French Burr Blocks, enclosed In a east Iron Case,, which
forms the back and hoop of the Stone w 1th a Cast I ron Ej e, or
Bush, than is ofgrealer external diameter at the bottom that
at the top, which Is secured to the back by,fourbolta,o that
every block is Jn the form of a dove tall, which sires greater
strength to a Stone than anyother method which Is required
In smalt mills, where the stone is run with great speed, and
becomes dansrorous If not strongly made. It also gives any
weight to a stone of small diameter that Is required without
having Itthlck or high, that makes it top heavy.
This mill Is a square frame made of wood or caHiron.ln
the form of a busS.wilh Bridge-tree, Spindle Balance, Hii.jr
Driver, and Rcgulatlns Screw, and grinds uuon the same
principle as a Iarte mill, differing only in the Runner ,vtoiie;
this being of great weight enables it to grind nearer the cen
ter a greater quautlty of grain with less power than any oiher
mill now in use. This mill isportable,andmay beatlached
to steam, water, horse or hand power.
.ALSO, all sizes of Erench BurrMill Stones, manufactured
on the same principle.

minute, attached to Gin, Steam, or Wator fower. By the
steady application of two horse power the Mill will grind six

as well i corn. The thirty Inch mill, if put to its fullest
speed, wll' griudfrom ten to fifteen busbelsper hour.

Little Mary's Temptation.
Br MRS. IT. A. DEXISOX.
"Shall I?" whispered little Mary to herself, stand
ing pn tiptoe with her chubby hands folded behind
On the polished table that her blue eyes just
peeped over, laid a bright round sixpence, a new
sixpence, that Mary longetl to sec transferred to her
little, red silk bag. Her mother had left the coin
there and forgotten it; forgotten it, Mary knew,
because she heard her say that there was not a bit
of small change in the house.
Long and eagerly Mary contemplated the trea
sure. "What a varioty of nice things took shape
and floated over that table, crowding round the new
six-pence, and giving it a sort of fairy value;"snrely,
it would buy an endless variety of pretty toys, anil
if she could get two sngar.bids for one penny, what
a countless lot could she buy with six whole pence.
She would have sugarplums, and sticks of twist
ed candy; she would have mint hearts, and a little
new doll no, she wouldn't buy a doll on second
thought, for she had two already. She would keep
some of her money to carry a school, or perhaps,
all of it, n,n.d show It lo her playmates, who seldom
liad so mneh,
"Shall I? shall I?" Oh! how that wicked tempter
urged tho fair-haired Hltlo girl! "What golden vi
sions ho placed in array before her! How he kept
whispering "mamma will never know it, never, nev
er; for she has forgotten all about it;" and how
stealthily, at last, that wicked tempter, that dwelt
iu Mary's dear little heart, caught her white liand,
and slowly carried it till the tips of her fingers touch
ed the very rim of the shining sixpence.
But, thank God. there is also an angel in every
human being, as long na ho strives to keep pure and
good; whose delight it Is to overthrow this wicked
tempter, that assailed, not only little-Mary, but men
She came slowly up, and murmured,' in, a quiet
still voice that would not have lriguteu a moue
"Oh! little Mary, little Mary, don't you kuow"
that is stealing? don't you know it's as wicked to
take tliat bit of mutiey, as for the great thief to
rob your father's money drawer, or steal your moth
er's gold ring."
"Uut father and mother would find it out then;
they would know that toniebody had taken thcir
treasuret. this little sixpencu I'm subk nobody re
members, and I want it badly:" almost insensibly
the fingers had closed over the money.
"But little Mary," said the good angel in a sol
emn voice that quite awed the child, 'there is a great
God, whose eye can see awuy into your heart: and
He knows tho thoughts you're thinking: lie has
found out the dark corners where these wicked
thoughts hide, not daring to come into the light.
Oh! little Mary, remember how often your darling
mother has talked to you about that sin : think that
though S1IK might not know it, Oouanil you would,

never be happy a-rain.' Xo, little Mary, though
yott are cter to sorry, you can never be happy
""Shall I! shall I?"
The wicked tempter had spoken for the last timer
little Alary took the sixpence, with a heightened
color, aud heavy beating heart, but she ran as fait
as she could run, never stopping to take breath till
she found her mother, and eagerly holding out the
money, she cried, "it was on the table in the chairi
ber, dear mother."
Her mother smiled, took the sixpence, and kis
sing Mary's forehead, she said
"What a dear, little daughter I have got. Some
little daughters would have kept the money, and
never toll! of it: how can I be thankful enough to
God, who has given me snch an honest little girl!"
Mary held down her head; the tears were gather
ing thickly in her eyes, but she looked tip bravely
aud said, almost sobbing,"oh, mamma, I don't know
as I Ait honest: am I honest if I wanted to take it
ever so much, and almost did tako it?"
"Bless you. my child," said the happy mother,
catching the treasure in her arms: "yon have safely
passed the ordeal, you have been tried and not been
found wanting: yes, dear, you are still my honest
daughter, and I have no fear, that after to-day, you
will take anything that does not belong to you,
thank God," And, in the excess of her joy, the
good mother could not keep from weeping.
"But what, then, arc you crying for?" said little
Mary, wiping away tho tears with her pretty fin
gers. "For pleasure that my Mary has resisted evil:
for pleasure that she did not wickedly take the six
pence when she knew her mother would never find
it out. And now, my darling, you shall keep it,
and I will add to it till you have enough to buy
poor Judy's little girl a nice warm frock for the
coming winter: and whenever you see that frock on
the little girl, you must pray to God that He will
always lead you out of temptation, and never, nev
er allow you even to wish for that which is not
Mary's eyes sparkled: she had for a long time
wanted to give something to the washerwoman's
pretty little girl, and now she was as happyit hap
py could be. She went singing and dancing about
the house; she felt by her father's warm kiss, and
'.'God bless you," that ho knew she hail done right.
l)o yon think, dear little reader, if Mary liad ta
ken the sixpence, anil bought all those nice things,
she would have had tliat pure enjoyment that comes
from doing right? On the contrary, it might have
led her at last to be a wicked, sinful woman, whom
nobody would ever have loved.

upon us all, aud the stranger took his departure.
Whence he came, and whither ha went, or who he

hymn, which though now common, may be interest
ing to your readers, as it was so deeptr so to ns,
from tho circumstances detailed:

Who sued so humbly for relict.

Whither be went, or whence he came;
Yet there-was something ia his eye
That woa my lovt, I knetmot why.
Oarc, when my scanty meal was spread,
He entered: not a word he spake;
Ju-t perishing fur want of bread,
I gave him all; he blessed it, brake,
And ate, but gave me part again. - ,
Mme was an angel's portion then;
And while I fed with eager ha-te. '
The crust was manna to my taste. '
I spied Mm where a fountain burst
Clear from the nxk;hU strength wa gone;
The heedless water mocked his thirst;
He heefil it, saw it hnrrvlng on.
I ran and raised the miffrrer np;
Thrirefrom the stream he draiued mv cup;
Dipped, and retnmed i: running o'er;
I drank, and never thirsted more.
Twa night: the flood were out; it blew
A wintry hurricane aloof ;
I heard hU voice abroad, aud flew
To bid him welrr.me to my roof.

Laid him on mine own couch to rest;
Then made the earth my bed, and seemed

The straucr started from disguise;
The tokens in his hands I knew:

The little boy had been taught by hw teacher that
it was wicked to be cruel to any of God's creahtres. !
He ran across the road, up to the naughty boy,

Returning- from the faaerat of a child hi the city
: , in 18.11. 1 met. at the house of a friend.
a widow lady of middle age, aud of more than or
dinary iutoHurenee. After a little jjenoral convex
sation, I alluded to tiie funeral I had been attend
ing, and Inquired whether she frit herself prepared
for tlntt great change which we mast all of ns soon
er or later cxperieuee.
- After a few moments" hesitation, she replied ta
my fjnMtion bv saying tlwt she was an Infidel, ami
did not receive the Bible a the Word of God. Af
ter conversing with her long enough to satisfy mv
self that she tad read the Holy Scripture?; and wit?
acquainted with the common arguments which Infi
debt have used against them, I inquirel whether
she believed in tho existence of an infhitely wise
and good God. She replied that she did a nd tho t
that the Bjbfc gave a trnthfhl account of, his per
fections. I then inquired, "Do you believi- that we
are all creaUxl by this God?" She repISd."Ccr
tainly I do; I believe we are all flic creatures of
his power." I then said to her. "Madam, as you
appear to have read the Bible, will you tell mo
whether ait unshaken belief in its Divine origin,
and a cordial reception of the religion which it In
culcates, would not be calculated to make men bet
ter and happier, even in this world, than such a be
lief aa you cherish?"
She answered. "It must be fo; tho Bible require
men to love their neighbors as thcvlovc themselves.
and to do nnto others as thev would have othera
do unto them; this would make good members of
society; and the belief that they were going to hea
ven when they died, woahl make them happy."
"Yon have answered truly. The moral code of
the Bible, if believed and obeyed, would regulate
in the most perfect manner, all our intercourse with
each other; while its rich and precious promises, if
received and relied on, as coming from God, would
elevate our afSvctions, raise us above the world, and
make us happy here. But if the Bible is not a rev
elation from God, as it professes to be, it Is one of
the mot impious oompilatioDS of falsehood that
I men have ever attempted to palm upon the world;
and yet, according to yor own admission, a holy,
wise, and good Being, has formed an entire race of
intelligent creatures with sueh minds, that a belief
iu this impious ami lying Book, will make them bet
ter and happier than to believe the truth." She re
mained silent for some time,and.then with consid
erable feeling, replied: "I have never before thought
of the subject in this right."
After entreating her to examine tlie snbject with
care, to see if she could get rid of the conclusion at
which we had arrived, I left her and returned home.
A short time after this conversation, I preached
an evening lecture in the neighborhood where thh
woman rcsidty. After the jwblic cxereisos, I gave
notice that if there were any who wished to cou
verse with me about their own spiritual condition,
they might remain after the congrearioniad widv

a cordial reception of, the Word of God, or sho
must renounce Iter infidelity. The two first she
could not do, and she had done the last; and had
come to inquire what she must do to be saved. She
felt that her infidelity had resulted from a depraved
heart, rather than an enlightened mind, and trem
bled forlierself as an undone sinner. Ipointed out
to her, as plainly as I could, the way of salvation.
