iare a treasure to any. land. .:'
We have before us one of his stories
"Suaan Lee's Birth-day Adventure, and
wbatcameof it." , It contains many boau
tiful sketches; much true poetry. It is
full. of that loving, trusting spirit which
seems to say, put truth in the way of the
child and it will love it, lead it up to God
and it will ever seek him. .. .
. An old man, Susan Lee's Grandfather,
Lad lost twelve sovereigns. ' This was a
large sum for him. . He had piled one
upon anothera small Trajan column,
lie had not quitted his room; all day he
had set cross-legged upon his tailor's
board hard at work; but the money was
gone.'; Who could haveenterod unseen,
unheard and taken ill. It was strange,
very Btrange. . - : ;
. ., The child (Susan) was never so unea
sy. The day was getting far advanced,
and it was neccessary that she should
think of returning home. ' She intimated
this to the old man: he acquiesced ' by a
hod of the head, but spoke not a word
did not raise his eyes from his 'work.
Heaven! did he think that she . She
could not bear the thought. She with
4iew into the little garden, and seating
fierseW gpon an old Hone bench, wept in
- The birds 4aVbUth1y, early in the SBa
on as it was. Susan sat and wept on the
old bench. ' She could not endure to lie
under such an imputation. But perhaps,
after all, her grandfather did not suspect
ho r. She would clear her mind of doubt.
So stRrting eagerly from her seat and
wiping her eyes, she returned to the
room. ' ' 1 1
M "Grandfather," said she, ''do you think
that 1 have .taken those sovereigns? Oh,
don't say you do pray don't. Say you
know me better than that." ,. She held
her clasped hands towards him, and in
breathless suspense awaited his roply.
t..: "No, Susy,'' he said, presently, I don't
think you have taken them, tor you could
never rob your grandfather you never
could.: -1 intended to give you six of
those sovereigns, to pay for schooling for
.your ''I fully intended to have done that.
Wo, Susy, you didn't take them at least,
I hope you didn't, .- . , ,
V For all the sun streamed into the room,
nnd shed garish light into the nooks and
recessesjthat were obscure at other times,
she saw nothing the ' room "contained, it
grew So dark.' She w as seized with yor
tigo," and fell unconscious to tho floor. ,;.
"Reader, you are honest of course you
are. I Were you ever charged with theft
openly,; or by inuendol Did the dis
grace ever burn into your soul the dis
grace "of being Suspected! Oh, pity poor
Susan Lee, who, hearing her grandfather
speak those terrible words, "1 hope you
didn't," fell to the ground in her inr.o-
cence, overtaken by syncope. To jump
from his shopboard to seize her, in his
arms, and carry her into the garden, that
the fresh air might visit her brow healing
ly wore the 'first proceedincs of Simon
Buckwheat. Old man, thou art terriheil
Be thy terror thy punishment, for' thou
hast grievously wronsrod a tuture angel
How tenderly he bugged her . in his
arms when herlifo returned again! with
wavering consciousness,, fur as yet she
only taiutly 'Understood her position
vCirandfalher," she said, kissing the
old man's check, 'l have had a terrible
dream I thought I had robbed you, I

She did tremble, and wept in renewed
agony as she. recollected all., ' ; . , -i
' "Grandfather, if you think that I took
those twelve pounds, how mistaken you
aref-" ';! '.' ':' ;'': ;.7V ( .";'
''."Voudid not take them, my darling"
"But, grandfather, tcho did take them,
then?" , ,: x . i , ' . .,
' It was a question to , which no reply
could be given. Without uny act of hu
man appropriation, they seemed to have
disappeared. Simon had never once,
even for an instant; quitted the room
'.Strange, most strange! ''
- Could it be thrtinkerI
? The affair of the purse ' came strongly
back on Susan s recollection. . , ' ,
.' "Ifhe'did take them." cried Simon, I
will never -". But ho loft the sen
neighbors that I have hitherto placed.
Oh, who, am I, that iii my desperate ig
norance I should daro for one moment to
insist on the universal depravity of my
fellow mortals God forgive me I have
libelled ell mankind."- As many a black
gowned preacher does, with less excuse
than thou, old man could'sl claim.
' "Let us have another search, ' grand
father," said Susan. J'ou may be mis
taken about the mantel-shelf."
- "No, he was sure of the mantel -shelf-"
but he aided in the renewed soarch, nev
ertheless. 'Nothing came of it, the mon
ey was not to be found. : It was impossi
ble to suspect any ' one but the tinker,
On the other hand and Simon knew it
well from' teri years' tried experience of
his honesty it was impossible to suspect
-the tinker. - i.-;. -.w .'-r' -
Simon Buckwheat, thnu did 'at not quit
the room for one instant during the grand
child's absence, when sho saw the tinker
a milo upon his road.: Thou did's't not.
But did'st thou sleep! ! Dids't thou enter
upon that mystery,; albeit Jthou art now
unconscious of it! Did the invisible
world disclose its secrets to thee, and
show thee a bright winged angel' with a
seroue and golden brow, whose features
while on earth hud been those of thy bed
ridden friend, deceased that morning '
livert so. . Discourse unto s,r Grand
father of little Susan, how It affected thee.
What! the heavens opened,' and. thou a
witness! Keveal, reveal,7 that we too
may adore.- '''" ;
He was clothed with eternal youth!
Yes; that garment awaits us all. Only
on earth angels- are born and die; age
sometimes lies between. ' ,
Not always. Witness that moiher fol
lowing the coffin of her infant child.
And thou sawest him---sawest him in
the Supernal a white-robed spirit,' with
Intelligence glancing through ' the Im-
sities.-'-Compared with him in his
transformation, Shakspeare and Newton
were oafs of the ploughed field. ' ' ':'
But thy money was stolen ' whilst thou
slept.' " .. ,''.;'. '' ; .' " ' '
1 An idiot boy; Archy Page, tho sport
and mock of the inconsiderjte, came into
Simon Buckwheat's shop, when he was
busti ed with work. 1 Archy had been out
in the fields.' "Been a-lobking for prim
roses; a-lnoking torthern under the hedg
es. 1 They knows me, the prim-roaes do."
"Did you find any, Archy," asked Simon.
"Iss, Simon,' and daisies, but tlie: butter
cups arid cowslips are asleep.' God
hasn't called them yet." He was told he
would soon. " 'Iss, he will soon; so moth
ertold me. But d'ye think Simon fori
have been out in the fields listening to
them d'ye think the birds sinjg like they
used to do,'' The idiot thought not, He
thought they used to sing "because old
John liked to hear them, but he s gone
to Heaven." Daddy Frisk had told him
that. "He says it is a fine place. " I shall
get my reason there, he says, and nobody
there will cry 'poor tool to Archy, when
Archy peep in at their doors." But Ar
chy has caught the world's affection
money loving.- This- makes him think
the birds sing loss ' sweetly, and doubt
whether the flowers will awake. It is
such a brave thing to have money,' He
will not be a fool if he has it; none, at least
will call him so. For thus does he rea-
''Stay," she said and rising and reach
ing her bonnot. will go with you."
Simon was relieved; Susan made hap
py; poor Archy pardoned,' nnd his moih
er quioted. A good man in the neigh
borhood, Acquainted with all the parties,
nnd their history, soon helped them oii.
Susan Lee was welt ! educated and, of
coarse, well married.1 -The idiot's moth
er had a snug competeiico ' secured to
both." Old Simon lived, a hearty Worker,
determined never to accuse the innocent,
nor tempt the ignorant, and may every
reader follow his example and escape the
infection' which led him into temporary
difficulties,' and made all '-connected

COMMENT ALBANY EVEXINO JOURXAI..
There is no originality in this Atlas
logic. The brilliant idea which it 'sels
forth, was more beautifully and striking
ly exhibited by an Irishman many years
since, rat was told that by the use of a
stove, a room could be warmed with one
half the wood that would be required in
a hre placo. I hen, says Pat, "In faith
I'll buy two stoves and save all the wood.'
Pat's domestic; and the Atlas's politic
al economy, are on a par. There is,
however, this essential difference in Pat's
favor;' " '''.' ;- " . ''
; His suggestion, though lacking sense,
was not deficient in wit. ' The Atlas's
answer to the Tribune, has little to boast
of in either respect. '.: '
In talk of getting "the clothing afore
said"' from England for nothing, is as
senseless arid unmeaning, ' as to talk of
an entire saving of fuel by the use of
two stoves. ' . " . ' ' ' i
. The case fairly staled stands thus: ;
A farmerresiding in Michigan, wishes
to purchase annually; cloth, hats, and
shoes, which will cost $100 in N. Y.; and
$25 niore if he buys them of the manu
facturers or mechanics, who reside in the
village one mile distant from his farm.
He takes his potatoes, buckwheat, poul
try, eggs, cheese, butter, &c. kc, to the
city, converts them into cash, sends it to
New York,, and gets in return' for his
mo.iey, five yards of cloth, five hais, and
five pairs of shoes; when sevoral neigh
bors exchange an equal quantity of sur
plus produce with the villago manufac
turers and mechanics, got but four yards
of cluth, four hats, four pair of shoes in
return. Quid est maximum bonum '
The free-trader boasts of his superior
sagacity and success. . His neighbors
having as keen a relish as himself tor a
good bargain, resolvp (o imitate his ex
ample,' Tho next year they all .'.convert
their surplus produce into money, and
send it to New York to make their pur
chases.: All ore, thus far, highly elated
at the success of their free-trado experi
ment. But on. the succeeding year,
vvhon tliey go to the villago to dispose of
their produce, they find, the number of
purchasers diminished, and the prices of
these articles reduced. Un inquiring tho
cause, they learn that tho weavers, the
halters, and the shoemakers, hayo closed
shops. It was useless for them to weave
clotn.'oi' make hats and shoos, which they
could not sell. Some of them wore out
of employ; they wanted butter, cheese,
ccc, to uo sure, out nau no money to pay
for them;' others had abandoned their
trades, on learning that the farmer would
no longer purohaso the products of their
labor: had becomo farmers themselves,
and were already in the market with their
butter, cheese, &c, thereby increasing a
supply at the time when there was a di
minished demand for these articles. The
consequence was a fall of 50 per cent,,
in the village for some of those articles,,
and others could not be sold for apy price.
What was to be done? Where was the
$100 to be got to send to New York?
The hist idea that suggested ltsolt was
to send this surplus produceto New York
atid'get the clothing wanted Jn lieu; r
but it was ascertained that the eggs, put:
lerf 'poultry, buckwhoat, potatoes,' and.
divers other things, which had aided to
make up the 8100; before the, village
market was destroyed would not Dear
the expense' of transportation to so dis-.
tant a market as New York;- and . what
tended to aggravate the case was, that
these, articles, the value of. which was
thus diminished or destroyed, were alto
gether the' most profitable, products of u
farm, if a convienient market was at hand
whore they could be disposed of. ,' , i ,
These Michigan farmers begin to reason
rationally on the subject, as all men will
reason when they have beon made to suf
fer for the adoption of a plausible, though
false theory. ;They come to tho conclu
sion that to determine wheather a thing
is cheap er otherwise, some other things,
bosidos Jlhe price it cost in dollars and
cents, must be taken into, consideration.
They iiiid that as they , want to, convert
thoir potatoes and buckwheat into cloth
ing, it is necessary for ihem to consider
what tho effect will bo on the price ot
these articles,, beforo they resolve to pur
sue a course which will either destroy or
greatly depreciate thoir value, so much,
indeed, that they -would have been great
ly tho gainers by the continuance of the
old system; by which they nominally paid
25"por cent, more, but in, reality 25 per
cent, less-tor their clothings than they
have to pay under the new systeiji. ; Let
us take the account:
Leaving a balance of 50 bushels of buck
wheat in favor of the old system.
The farmer never can increase the rel
ative value of his surplus produce by
starving our manufacturers and median-,
ics, and compelling them to become pro
ducers instead of consumer. , .Thus we
gee thatone hundred' .bushels of wheal.
100 bushels of oats, and , 100 bushela of
potatoes, will bring more yards of cloth,
a greater number of hals and shoes, if
exchanged with manufacturers and me
chanics who live near the spot where they
arc grown, than if sent 500 miles by in
land navigation to New, York, and 3,500
more across the ocean to England.
A farm within a mile of, a flourishing
manufacturing village! worth double the
amount of one 25 milos distant; and yet
the free-trader advises rne toititerpo.se
the 'space of 3,500 miles between my
farm and the ultimate market for the sale
of its surplus products.
I. used to lliink l'at wasjocking when
he recommended the entire saving of fuel
by (he use of two stoves; but verily,' he
was wiser than the generation of free
traders.. A Michigan Farmer. .
