You must prove yottfVtdf a good scholar by mustering the hard lessons set ymt to learn. It you were where everything suiiitl yon, you might glow tip without even knowing that yott had these tatil's tc ' overcome,." ' ' "I really 'believe.

"That's your way of putting it, ".aid Aunt Milly, "but that's about it. Lvery fault is an evil growth ; iinrt it we get them out roots and all, why that's the last of them. If voir get so that you can bear the little tiruls that you have now, with perfect patience and good nature, you can tiear larger ones when you grow older iu the same way."

Here," and lint letter was stretched out almost within Jenny's reach, to bo suddenly withdrawn just she thought she was going to take hold of It. "Let her have that, letter, Dick, if it's for her," said Mis. Fanning, coming in. "Of course, but that's the lu:i of it. isn't for her, it's your letter," and the boy threw il into his mother's lap. Jenny opened her inoiilh to speak, but she caught Aunt Milly's eye, and was silent. Dick danced round the room on one toot, managing to get entangled Jenny's worsted, and niter breaking finally reaching his mother's chair. "Il was from John," he said looking over her shoulder. "Yes, and he's coming homo in two W 't ks- "Hnlly for him, don't yon say so, sis? What, wouldn't answer its brother? Thought the letter was for you. Many a slip yoit know." "Dick let her alone," said Mrs. Fan ning, going out of the room aud leaving the letter with Aunt Milly. "Who' rf touching her?" was the reply emphasized by a dexterous tip of the chair Jenny was silting in, which result ed in flooring the occupant. Jenny sprang up with a very red face. "Don't go after him," said A iut Milly, "and don't cry." "What shall 1 do then ?" "Stay here and lanh and when vou are ready I'll read you John's letter." "J in all ready now, thonu'li 1 do think Dick ought to ho punished." "11 8 punishment enough to be so nauirhtv and unkind. See that vou do your part, and things will all come right." John s letter was like John himself, bright, and hearty, aud rollicking; full uve tor everybody, and full ot anticipa tions ot the good limes to come, lie inquired alter every member ot the fam ily, anil sent messages to all, ami closed y reminding them that in two weeks should be at home. Isn't it a good letter ?" said Mrs. ''annii.g, coming in as Aunt Milly read the last eentence. "I don't see why he honld care so much about coming," she went on to sav, beating away al a bowl of eggs that alio had brought from the kitchen, "there's nothing very pleasant r him to come to see. I iu always worked to death, and his falher's neer eady to sit down and hu sociablo. inieliuies lliiuk iwoulil bo better to try md enj'v things as we go along, a little; ml when 1 sav anything ot the kind Mr. Fanning, he n.ivs, 'Yes enjoy as you so along, and fetch up iu the poor-house, that's some folks' way of enjoyment, but tin'l mine.' If he's said that to me once, Milly, he's said it a thousand limes." "There am worse evils than the poor- house," said Milly. "Well, at any rate, your brothor ilou think so; but you aim much alike, that's i fiict. 1 don't see how you come to so dillereut. When John's home he tries lo gel his father to slack np a little ; but aw, you might s well try to slop a house afire wilh a cup of water. "And how long does John stay home," enquired Aunty. "lie II bo here about six weeks. 1 glad you're here, to help him pass the time, for I often worry about its being so dull for him. I'm afraid sometimes that he won't care so much about com ing, after awhile. From this time forward but little was thought of except John's coming. W hetherthe mother cooked or cleaned or washed, or made cheese, her heart was tull ot her tall, manly boy, so sooa to bo home, and her tired lace grew bright, and the angels softened, as, iuiuiagir.ulion she heard his fresh voice, md his - boyish laugh ringing through the old house. "We must have Dorcascome over and 1 u so mi! sewing," she said to Milly, day or two after John'd letter came." li.iven t got anything to put on my back ot an afternoon. 1 II try to get along with the work, and Jenny can bcW. She's better al that than housework. She made a dress for me this spring and did eVery siitch of it herself ; aud was done well too." 'Jenny likes to be praised so well. when she's done her best, that I can easi ly imagine her pleasure, when she yotl were ph ased with her work." "Well I didn't say anything about pledged; and I don't think I looked so either ; tor 1 was might y tired night tho dress was finished. I had been washing all day." "Mother talking about the dress made her?" said Jenny, coming in her mother went out." "Yes jibe's been telling mo bow you did it." . : Jennygave a little scornful shrug her shoulders, -'You ought to have been here night it was djne. I fried the cakes supper, and happened to burn one grid dle tull. Mother came ir. and smelt smoke, and came straight tip to me slapped iny face. She said she'd teach mi to burn griddle cakes.' "And what did you do?" "I lifted the griddle' and pushed cakes into tho stove, and went upstairs." "Wouldn't it have been better if had gone on Just the same, without ticing the blow ?" ; . "I think it would have beeu better mother hadn't struok me." "Who, when lie was reviled, reviled not again." said Aunt Milly, aottly. "Aunt Milly," said Jenny, after a while looking very serious, "I believe you really think we ought to be I Chr Christ," . !

I never saw much good com of it." "Iv'e seen a great deal of good come of trying to live like Christ ; aud 1 trust you will, yet. It's true there's a gr. al deal of talk where there's one Christ like act, but that's not our business ; our business is to follow our leader. It you should start with me to meet John at the depot, you wouldn't turn back be cause Dick wouldn't go, too?" "I should rather think not, Aunty." "Vou like to draw, and want to learn ti paint very much. If you had a chance to go lo a good teacher, the best in i he country, every day, you wouldn't stay away because your lather aud moiher don't like to draw?" "No indeed!" 'Then when you see that a thing is good, a id you are sure you want it. you take I he best means in your power to get it, whether other people agree wilh you or not." "I 's one everybody does that, Aunty." '"Then the trouble is that we are not sure that it's good for us lo be C'hrisl like ! is that it ?" "Let me see Amity il I understand you. What we realv want we trv hard - in get what we are sure we want. Now you mean it we really wan ed lobe like Christ, w should try just ns I would try to learn to draw, it I could." "That's it Jenny. Then what's the first thing to do?" " Make up our minis isn't it?" " 1 should say so." "Aud when 1 burned the cakes and mother struck me, alter I had been to work hard all day, you think I should it ive gone rirlil uu us if she had praised ,I.C? " I think you should have done that if you wanlod lobe like Christ; that ques tion you miiNt settle yoursell." Doreis Brown, the dressmaker, tailor ess, anil general ti:trr-iip ot the neighbor hood, appeared at the Fanning farm in due time, armed with her big shears, her scisstusof various sizes, her marvelous needle book, her sleel thimble, aud last, but not least, her tailor's goose. "I brought my goose along," sbo said, getting out of the farm wagon, and wad dling into the hoip-e, under the weight of her looN, for said I to myself: Like'e n.it miss Fanning 'II have something for ine to dicker up for Dick," and she laugh ed a not unmusical laugh al her attempt at punning. " I'm glad you did," said Mrs. Fanning .soberly; "D.ck's as ragged as a colt. It you can slay long enough, I want a jack et made for him and a vest for his tat her. Now set by and have some breakfast ; you must he hungry alter your ride." " N ot to sneak ot. My appetite isn t of the best this summer. . I i.ook a (lose of thorough wort this morning, for says I to myselt, Miss 1- annings vitlles are so much better than oilier foikses thai it pays to have a good appetite at her house. Thoroughwori's good to sort o' cleanse the stomach aud sharpen a body up." It didn't take long for Dorcas to get through breakfast, aud soon the little sitting room was transformed into a workshop. Jenny was sewing straight seams, Milly was ripping her sister-in-law's old alpaca, for Dorcas to make over, and the baby, delighted with the unusu al bustle, and variety, was iu his very best behavior. The day passed smoothly and rapidly, as did the days that suc ceeded ; thoughts of John's coming seem ed lo harmoiii.e the entire household even Dick's restless spirit was turned from the usual channel of mischief, and occupied in efforts to get together as many fish hooks as possible before John's arrival. The mother went about her work wilh a smile on her fane, aud sometimes a song on her lips ; Jenny had wonderful success in keeping her temper, mainly, I suspect, because there wasn't much temptation to lose it, and " the baby was a little blessing the whole te tote of the time so it was." It has long- been an established fact, that the longest day conies to au end; this is equaly true of the longest week, and the day of John's arrival dawned bright and beaut ilul. " He's starling about this time," said Mrs. Fanning, as she ban led the coffee to her husband. Who's starting," said Mr. I aiming, g' "ffly- . . " why John of course, who else siiottiu I mean?" " I s'pose there's other folks in the world besides John, now, isn't there?" was the reply ; but iu spite of the attempt to hide all interest, there was an unmis takable smilo ou the farmer's rough fact. John Fanning was proud of John J.tin.i every body knew that, though he Woilld have borne considerable torture ueiuie he would have admitted it. ' I'll have your dress done Miss Fan ning Inside of an hour, and the clutter cleared up," said Dorcas. " Oh there's no hurry. Don't think John will stay in the bouse long. He'll be all over tho farm before night." "That he will," replied the father; "and he wont rest till he knows eveiy thing th it's going on by everybody squirrel and woodchucks included." The breakfast things were cleared away, and Mrs. Fanning began to cook. The pantry must be full lor John. The house was alreay cleaned from top bottom, and when flaky pies, and doughnuts, and snowy bread should come out of the oven, nothing would lacking. Jenny was useful iu fetching aud carrying ; and sifting flour and beat ing eggs, aud the hours flew by. "Jenuy." said her mother towards noon, "vou can dress the baby now." "Come along pudg-mudg," said Jenny, lifting the fat little fellow from the cra dle, "come along and get ready brother John. He wont have the least idea who you are when he gets here, vou ..,....'

In goes his little " A scream from the' siitting room made Jenny wrap the baby in bin blanket, and run in to see what was the matter. She found her mother sitting on '.ho lounge, her hands pressed tightly over her faep, and Ai n Milly kneeling near her. The dressmaker stood by with a scrap of pa per in her hand.

Horace Greeley. j I a is iu A prr-nt lluhtof American jottrnnlisin. and perhaps the most renmrkable American of his period, has breathed hia last. It lias never neen our lot to record a death whose aurrmind inus and nr.leeedenl Impressed us with auclt i sense ol mournful nnd even irairio puthos. I'hst of President Lincoln had Indeed more of ne horror ol a certain kind of ilngs flVrt nt it fell sh rt or this in the arTerilng appeal it makes lo the deepest sympathies of our com mon linm-iii nature and lis power to toiieli those deep Well-sprint! of feeling which art. the fountain of iinuhVc'.ed tears. We write these sd lines w ith a tide of emotion poitrlnn into our swimming eyes; nnd although it hardly heroine a man, iniieh less a journalist in the discharge of hia public funciiona, lo let his fe lin.'-t gel c ntlr.'l of him, we cannot dls tciiilile tlie urief whh h t iket poeysion of ns at Hiis nflliciive termination f a great career. Poor Mr Greeley is gone; nnd no coveted appreciation can any louver soothe nor any C"iisur wound him Perhaps no kindly hu man heart ever so yearned fir sympathy or so eagerly r. ivi t-d or was so de-nltr irr.itetnl for just appreciation. 'o man who wus a great power in the politics of hi time naa ever so far removed from the character of siole. Any friend who was free from all suspicion of interested motives could easily rind the way into the inner citadel of his gentle heart, riiou j an unsparing eonirov- realist, be bore no in ilice ev.'ti in ihu heat of political con tention ; and no m in ever responded more warmly to th" personal esteem of pnrty an Bsioi's .

It was like thu interclian o! of courtesies between the officers of hosiil-j armies, wherein Hie tokens of per- mal esteem leave no sort of doubt that each will do lis utmost in the next day's battle. Such natural recognitions of military ability and personal worth imply no sort of infidelity to the cause for which eaeh partyfighls. Men of honor and stable convictions nre under no obligation to deny the virtue, or the abilities, of tlieir adversaries. The writer was never so deeply touched and moved as when, amid the stray leaves falling from the trees of Greeiir wood, w hile .Mrs. Greeley's coffin, with its cov ering of black cloth, (we remember that in our boyhood, iu Mr. Greeley's native Stele,, we never saw a coftla which was not black. was borue from the hears i to the opening of the family vault, through lines of reveieul, uncovered heads we say we can never forget the heart-breaking impression made upon us Mr. Greeley's fixed and most wistful look, directed upon us ou that mournful occasion,, as if craving the deep sympathy to which our long intimate relations entitled him, and which be could not doubt that, above all the other pallbearers, we were ready to give to the bereaved husband, the half-orphnned, stricken clnuL'hicrs, the pet lamlis of his fond, yearning, paternal hear . It was Hie last time mat ins eyes and ours ever met in a recog nizing look ; and we deplore our neglect to seek him out and pour our free sympathy into bis craving, responsive breast, alter that sail scene was over. The earnest, wistful look he theu fixed upon us, will never be effaced till our dying day. We bvg that readers will pardon us for this unseemly mastery widen our c-mo to is have got oyer an habitually cold pen. Something must lie pardoned lo the :nfirmity of our poor human nature. We have really nn heart for the duly which is laid npon us on this occasion. If our feel ings would permit us to lake tlie position of mere outside spectator", the fit thing for us to do would be io make a just, uncolored esti mate of Mr. Greeley's character and career. But the circumstances of his death strike us as so indescribably tragic and affecting that we have no command of our critical faculties, il is difficult to think of anything beyond the grief-iuspirine spectacle of 'such 'a death, fol lowing so swiftly upon the great eclipse and extinguishment "I the hopes which Mr. Gree ley had good reasons for enteriit'i ling during some stages of the recent crushing canvnss. "The stars in tlieir courses" seemed to fight against him. He relumed from that fatiguing tour in tlie West, in which Ids faculties sliono out in a surprising blaze of culminating splendor, to find Ids poor wife in the last stages ol her long decline ; nnd with a devo tion like that which he felt in the days of their early, youthful love, before time and disease bad impaired li'-r beauty, or domestic trials bad eff.tceil the bloom of their early nf fertion ; he was constantly at her bed-side, wilh the fidelity of a ministering angel, pass ing anxious days and sleepless nights w hich, und T less exigent circumstances, would have been due to repose after his recent exhaustless labors. The strain upon his physical endur ance and the more tremendous strain upou his quick emotional susceptibilities was too much lor him. The bow was not merely bent, but broken. The strength of a constitu tion, never weakened by any other excesses thau overwork, gave way; the chances of life which belonged to him by heriditary lon gevity, (bulb his lather and grandfather lived to be upwards of eighty,) were squandered ; and t'.ie vessel so rudely tossed in these recent tempests was thrown upon the beach an utler wreck. It is the saddest ending of a vigor ously useful life that we have ever known.
