The window of my little parlor coin mantled a view of the atrect In which afood the place of worship where the wedding nil being celebrated. Ai a alratixor, only utt arrived In thia towu I ronld noial first iiite itndertilatid why the utie'-t was ao full and m many of the tniddlooKed in'ople were taJkin with animation about the wcildinK. Ofcoutso llicte wa plcnly of gohsip amongst the-woim-n folk ati to Hi drcua of the bride and her maidens, and the look of the bridegroom and the age of each, which I wan not particularly interested in, and I ehotild toon have Mrned away and ahut down my witidow, but that my eye was attracted by two little girU among the bi'ideuiaid, about six years of bjjc, who wcie carrying choice buucbea of flowers and smiling so sweetly in their thildihh innocence, Unit I was Induced to lake more Intercut in the detail of the wed ding than a staid old pilgrim tiie shady niilo of fifty generally exhibit. The bride was a very fair young lady, in whose aweet palo face one could ace traces of beatilv that hhonc more bright ly than gems and gold. The bridegroom was a man in the early prime, of lifef aotnelhing more than thirty years of age, and with a marked expression of counte nance, as if hard working and hard thinking had come to his lot in an unu sual degree a firm, energetic, far-seeing tnnii. The Lord bless them both I aaid a wo man in the crowd, with a child in her arms, aa the tear ran down her cheeks, lie's a good man if ever thore was one. Look at him! he's quite the gentleman, and eight years ago I saw him with a tool ba-ket over bis shoulder, not a bit better otTlban I am, said a lazy looking man, with a tattered coat. Heaving a sigh ho added the old adage that Idle folks often quote, Luck's all. No belter offthan you, said an old gray haired man. Well, that's cool! you put yourself on an equality with Mr. Rich ards! You, indeed! Well ! he was just a journeyman car penter; neither more nor less; and that's what I am: we were equal eight years ago, though ho has got bis thousands now. Equals, said the old man, dryly; with this difference ho had braiua that he used, and never abused j he knew the value of time, and never wasted it. He thought about eternity; and whilo he worked hard, prayed hard. Intelligence, industry, and piety that was all that made the difference. . I was about to say from my opon win dow, A pretty considerable all, but a woman's voice interrupted me. And nobody begrudges his prosperity, I am sure; for he's worthy of it. To bo sure he is. Think what he's done for his parenU. Ah! hami'l ho been a blessing to themf said the woman with the child in her arms, as the kissed her little one. And the only one to live of all their family. Tho old folks had a deal of trouble once. The white haired old man said: I've known them for forty years; and like the reht of us they one whilo had a pretty bad life of it. Just then, the last carriage of the wed ding guests departed, and there wan a perfect torrent of good wishes poured af ter the cavalcade, as it left the ravrcd ed ifice. My readers will understand that I had heard cuongh in the various com ments (a few only of which I hava set down,) to rouse my curiosity; so I act out to learn something more, and deter mined on following the white haired vet eran, whose words to the ragged coated man had, to my mind, tiie ring of pure gold in them. I thought I had seen the old man before, kitting on a bench that oret looked the harbor; and I bent my steps to the place where I had noticed him fitting. I was right in my conject ure; he was thrre, looking out over the rippling f a, that gleamed and sparkled in the wintry tunahiue. Itatdittvn beside him on the bench and vrtituied to interrupt his meditation by the word : I should think, sir, that was a remarkable man who wm married this woming?

They are worthy people: but I tie bread of mar ie w and the at?rof artUctl'tu were tp triuted to them, i can lull yti, in the ea a lliat uif Kono. Old Mr. Richard waa carpenter by trade, a steady mau aud his wife was just the cheerful, pa tient, thrifty body that" makes a fireside pleasuut to a husband. Rut tho had great troubles In losing child after child .till her lender, feeling heart wan welt brok en. Mte' lost nil bntrow, this very Mr. Richard Who was married to-day. And besides these various siuknense aud deaths there wore all tin) up! and downs that happen is n working, niau's life. I!ut tJioy struggled on and pave their boy decent schooling; and they d'dn't spoil him through, of course, lie was to them as the light of their cyea. ' Ho went lo work with his father, and learned the trado of a carf enter wu, as We say, a worthy chip of the old blook. One thing I used to notice, in young Richards, he never xtt4 hi evening, , He was foud of Lis pencil, aud his .'favorite recreation was drawing. , There's few things niorc useful to a working mau than skill with the jiencil, ' Now, ten or fifteen years ago there Wu? not the encouragement tlvcre is now for working men ami youths to employ their evenings iu this way. One of the chief bent'llu deservablo from the industrial exhibition is, tbat they lead men to exercise their skill and Ingenuity, and proiluco some useful or ingenious in vention, in their leisure, lime, and uot muddle their brain with beer, o(- puff away their thoughts in smoke in tho pub lic house. ' Young Richards had not the privilege of partaking In theso ad vantages; ho however; made good use of hi time, devoting it to study and keep ing himself away from all ,bad, compan ions aud,di'inking , habits. But mutters didn't prosper very well wih his father trade was dull; and, young, Richards thought he must gob) a further field to try amJbtkUif luuisXlf. tlniilit.wjjc it was Urtt knowii how favuT le a tro ing, it was a bitter pang to bis parents to think of parting with him. Ho had an offer to go out, with several other me chanics, to tho east. Ho was engaged at the wages of six shillings a day, which was not much, considering that it was a very long voyage, and to a land where they would bo subject to disease and dangers of al! kinds ifcnliur trji t1i4 cli mate. Hut it was the best thing that of fered; and it came just at the right limo and iu his case, it came to tho right man. . . The poor mother, no doubt, thought she had reared her boy to little purpose, if nearly half tho world was to bo be tween them. -Tho ocean which divided her from her only son was as great a source of grief as tho graves of her other children. Cut, if nature put this feeling into her bcart, grace helped her to over come it. : The parents gave their boy their blessing, and sustained him by their prayers! ' Whut's that a poet says some where ubout : i . ii Waft a Uoitfjht from Iodiia to the I'ola., Why bless you, friend 1 ' Prayer wafts thoughts right up lo the Throne of God. '.'. I know It aaid I, softly, as the old man In his ardor, lifted his bat reverently, aud paused a moment before ho continued. Tho fitat year was a weary time a try. ing weary lime for the parents ; they had need of faith, for vain was tho help of mau in thuir anxiety. And the first year was a time of great trial to young Rich ards ; all was so slraugo, that uo doubt there were moments wheu bo pined for his iialive laud, and (bought ,. of the old fulk$ at hoiiio with a sore heart. Rut h was a man of action and the be-stcure for melangholy that I know of is work. So with a brave aud cheerful spirit, and showing in a heathen laod what a right nobis; fellow a Christian British work man is he got noticed and liked by everyone. Well, i.l so happened that the rich uative of a eertaiu great town, where a good deal of tea comes from I can't rightly get my tongue round those out landish places the rich native merchants at I said wanted fret 1 1 water brought Into their city ; and they bitd so far imitated English customs that they ottered a pii.c lor the Lest plan of water works. it was a very handsome prize, not less thau i'2,X) of our money. Young Rich. aids heard of it, as did hII the English residents, engineers, mechanics, and oth ers; it was open lOjgeneral competition!. It was now that yotuig Richard- felt the lwi...fi i a iur ftfitd ti, ittil tii ji .,rt j ploMlieut ol h:s kitme hoar in study- j daiiy labor to i form, and be never for ruomeut negl-ielod it .

At the stated time the plan went In, and there would no doubt have been great ditaatiafaciIoD among"! the competitor at the rxtrnnlon of time in hit behalf, had it nut be n for the fact that w hen hit p'au waa examined it waa ao much more excellent and practical in detail, tbat not only disiiibareaU'd peraoua admitted hi superiority, but hia (ellow competi tors universally acknowledged it. It waa a complete tui'cvas; and ao fuirly won that none could murmur at the award of the prize made to him. ' Now, when he had won the prlte, be thought it wa tho cud of the matter and a very joyful ending too. lie Lad a nice sum of money to teud home to England to help his father and mother. That, af ter thanking God, was fitat thought. Ibtt bless you, instead of tho end, it was the beginning of a new career. Those who offered the prize knew the carrying out of the plan might fail if not confided to competent hands, and who ao competent to see to its completion a the man de vised it? So they came with offers that he would take the management ot tho works, lis bad signed an agreement for a term at six shillings a day, and no idea of breaking his agreement was iu his miud. Rut a representation of tho case was mado ut proper quarters, and as the sort of work on which ho was engaged could be dono by an ordinary hand as a tribute to Richard's good conduct aud skill, he was released from this engage ment, aud he commenced Lis new career with a thousand ayear. Jt was no easy job, l'vo beard ay, and not dous without time as well as toil and skill. Rut you see, when once Mr. Rich ards was known It was soon found that he was worth knowing. There came ap plications to him for plans of all kinds' Ho wa obliged to tako au office and at tho samo time pupils, and young men whose education had coat hundreds aud probably thousands of pounds wore glad to work for him. Ho made an ample fortune iu less than eight years. It was enough to spoil bim, I exclaitn el. There's the best ol it. Ho U not ono bit spoiled by success, uot bo! I know he bad both bead aud heart to bear bis lot meekly, before God aud man, when I beard what he Lad dono for Li parents. Ho bellied a handsome Independence on them tho first thing. And then, only think of his coming back to the very place whero bo lived as a poor man among people who have known him from Infancy. 'W ell, Its a very lino region, said I. I do uot know a finer where a man could wish to settle. Yes, that's true but bo's a good, sen sible man ; uo foolish pride or upstart nonsense about bim. Ho is respected by both high and low, and is an honor to his native place. And his wife? I asked. 1 Oh, it was a love match. I don't know tho young lady; butt good man with a wiso bead on Lis shoulders, don't give bis love to a meic bit of swans-down. There's bis bouse yonder; if you come a little this way you cau seo it. I looked in tho distance, where on a rising ground among trees and gardens there were sev eral handsome mansions. ' I do not know that 1 distinguished the an pointed out, but I fervently joined him when ho said reverently; May the Lord bless them. Turning around to leave tho spot, there was tho imiu iu tho ragged coal, lounging against a post, to whom my old friend had ppoken in the morning. I was sor ry for tho dejection on bis face not the loss ao that 1 feared the poor man was his own enemy. Ah! its Cue talking, but things have gone against me, Le taid, as if wauling to renew the remarks of the morning. 1 don't envy no man, least of all Mr. Rich ards; he's one as all respects, but when I think that leas thau teu year ago he was glad to earn a sixpence mending my Aunt's window shutter, I cau't help thinking how strange it is tbat he should be rich and 1 should be poor. My good fellow, he was, a you say, glad to earn a sixpence, aud ready lo earn II, said my aged friend. And why don't you put a basket of tools on your shoulder and go into the village and oub ekirtt?

Discussing tho other day the question of man's and woman's promptness and punctuality, I was told the following sto ry illustrative of thu determination of tho feminine miud to keep an engage ment. It was last winter, I think, that Miss Anna K. Dickinson lectured at New burg, on a bitter cold night. 8hc was advertised lo lecture in New York, and learned lu tho morning thut the riv er at tho former placo was locked up frozen over, Indeed, but no one had the courago to venture across. The ice was uot strong enough to bear a liorso aud sleigh, and abovo and below the town was so thick thut to get a boat across was impossible. MiH Dickinson declared she would cross tho Hudson, and offered a handsome price to any muii w ho would assist her in accomplishing her object. Several stalwart fellows whom she had consulted assured her that it was worth one's life to attempt the passage ami flatly refused to aid her, until she expressed hor determination to go alone. This so shamed them that they finally consented to get a sleigh aud try to push her across to I'ishKill, whore tho could tako the down train for Now York and reach the Cooper Institute in time for her lecture Tho mercury was in tho vicinity of zero, and a biting wind, sufficient to freeze the marrow In one's bones was sweep ing down tho Hudson. Tho three men bundled tip tho little lady iu blankets and robes covering bur so completely thut she could neither see nor walk, aud placed her as if she hud been a buby iu the sleigh. Ono wont before and two behind and off they started with their precious bundlo of feminine resolution. Tho way was long; the air was bitter; the air was rough. Tho men worked like Trojans; bat they did not succeed iu reaching the opposite bank for nearly three hours, when, after muuy narrow escapes, they picked up their charge, frozen almost stiff, through all her wrappings, and con veyed her to tho railway sliition. They were too lalo for tho train. It was fully half an hour before the fair lecturer was sufficiently thawed to be ublu to stand on her feet, and even then she was so cold and in such pain that sho was com pelled lo pace tho room for more than four hours until tho next train urn veil. Her glorious energy and inflexible reso lution, however, carried her through. Sho reached the city about nine o'clock lie r lecture had been announced ut eight and drove at once to tho Institute, without a morsal ol food, ami still suffer ing intensely from cold. Sho delivered the lecture at any rate; but sho could scarcely stand tho while, and was so per turbed iu miud from what sho had suffer ed as scarcely lo bo ablu to collect her thought. Some one, speaking of this instance of heroism to Henry Ward Ucechcr not long after, asked hitnithc thought any man would do what Anna Dickinson had dono for tho sake of an engagement. No, replied Beecher, I don't think any man would; aud if he would, he'd bo a confounded fool ! .V. )'. C'or rtupoivlcwe Chicayo Tribune.. WOMKVS SIRS.

A NEW WAV IF si I I I.IMJ 1,11V SI l is,. There is something more tlmn even Irish humour iu the story of the settle, ment of a lawsuit which comes from Cionmel. At tho Tippciary Athi.o, which uro being held iu Urn I. town, a young farmer hud brought tin action against a lady of his own age for the pos session of part of a farm. When the young woman was under cross examina tion, tho plaintiff was ordered to eon front hor with rel'tin nco lo a part ot her evidence. As thu litigants stood together a happy thought struck tho Judge Why should not lliis good-looking couple be happy together? Ho whispered the idea to tho ury, who al onco accepted it. Ho then suggested it to tho couple themsel ves. If they imiriied they would both take tho farm; if they went on quarrell ing about 11 they would fritter It away. Tho young hnly being asked w hclher she was willing thus to end the slrile, intima ted that sho was. Tho barrister then ask ed tho young mau, Will you marry (hia young woman? Most undoubtedly whs his unhesitating response. The counsel suggested thut Iho wedding should take place at once; but that point was left to be settled hereafter. Tho suit ended In the entry of a verdict for tho plaintiff, uu condition of his promise lo marry the de fendant williln two months ; (ho vet diet not to be executed till tho marriage cere mony is performed. Wo regret to add that this most pleasant ending of a law suit was a little chequetcd. The counsel chaffed tho young ludy till sho left the court iu tears. Wo may at least hope that tho tears were not altogether tears of vexation; and thai, just as the lawsuit bus ended in a courtship, tho tears will soon turn to smiles. May w e also ex press a hope thut so good an example will not bo lost on litigants. J.uicluii JJiiily jS'm'H. KWPAI'K.It.
