THE HAND THAT SAVED US. Two painters were employed to fresco the walla of a cathedral. Both stood on a rude acaffulding constructed for the purpose, some fort feet from the floor. One of thain was so . intent upon his work that be became wholly absorbed, and in admiration, stood off from the picture, gazing at it with intense delight. - ., Forgetting where he wss, be moved back slowly, surveying critically tbe work of his pencil, until he neared the edge of tbe plank on which be stood. At this critical moment hia companion turned suddenly, and, almost paralyzed with horror, beheld hia imtnent peril; another in stant and the enthusiast would be precipita ted upon the pavement beneath. If be spoke to him it was certain death; if be held hia peace, death waa equally sure. Suddenly he regained his presence of mind and seizing a wet brush flung it sgainst the wall spattering the picture with unsightly ' blotches of coloring. ' The painter flew forward, and turned upon hia friend with fierce upbraiding; but atar - tied at bis ghastly face he listed to his reci tal of danger, looked shuddering at the dread ed space below, and with tears of gratitude be blessed the band that had saved him. -. Just so, we sometimes get absorbed on the pictures of tbe world, and, in contemplating them, step backwarJa unconscious of our peril, when the Almighty in mercy dashes out tbe beautiful images, and draws us at tbe time we are complaining of his dealings, into his outstretched arms of compassion and love.

" How beautiful!" And tbe . two men paused before the window of a print sel ler. The picture which had called forth from one of the men this admiring exclamatioo, was a showy bit of Landse'trpe, painted for effect and well calculated to deceive an unprac ticed eje'.- 'I meet inquire the price," said tbe speak er; whose name was Godwyn, and he drew fait companion into the store. 'What do you ask for that landscape,- h the window I" " "Fifty dollars," replied tbe picture seller , "and it's worth a brtntirerf. Pet the owfter wants money, and must sell,- even at so great a sennce." "Who ht the artist!" A Berne not familliar to ehticf of tbe men wat given. But, as tbey were ettif posted Hp la art news indifferently Well, and did not eare to make their ignorance known; no far ther questions were salted.

"We have a coYByarfiow piece by fbW SSire artist," said the pfcitfre seller', wboee ears, all on the alert, had overheard the fstt re mark Indeed ! Let mr tee tber two- togerffr- er." The paintings were placed aide' by tide. Charming! besutiful! exquisite !" were tbe exclamations with wbietr their exhibr , tion wss greeted. : J . j I will take one of them, said Godwyn and you the other." Looking towards his friend Martin. "I dont know about that," answered tbe the letter. "The pictures are certainly very tempting. But I am not just sure that I can spare fifty dollars to-dsy for an article ef simple luxury." "They're cheap ss dirt," said Godwyn. Better take one. You'll not have another chance like this soon." But Martin hesitated, debating the money question involved, and finally decided to let the companion piece remain where it waa for the present. Godwyn paid down fifty dollars, and ordered oue of the pictures sent home. . , Tbe two men left the picture dealer's and walked on, ttodwyn elated by hia purchase, and Martin well satisfied at having sucest- fully resisted tbe temptation to spend fifty dollars for a painting, when be had other use for his money. "You will regret not having bought that picture, said Godwyn. "It is a gem, and ia offered at half its value." ' "I love pictures," wss answered. They are to me s source of unalloyed pleasure. Set my inconeis yet too limited to permit an indulgence of this taste. Tbe common wants ol life and the charities which may not be disregarded, keep me without a sur plus to spend in the merely ornamental." "t ato no better off than you are," said Godwyn. "But a portion of my income must go in the direction of beauty and or nament. Bare walls are my abhorrence" At this moment a cry of warning reached the ears of the two men, and, looking for ward along tbe street, they saw a horse, at tached to an empty wagon, dashing towards them at frightful speed. A little in advance stood a cart, backed up to the pavement. Before the owner, an Irishman, had time to turn his horre, the runaway was upon him, and one of the shafts striking his poor beast on the head, killed him on the spot. "Poor fellow," said Martin in a tone of nitv. as he heard the Irishman bewail his loss. ' "Come," said Godwyn drawing upon the arui of his friend. "It's mercy tor tbe poor half starved beast." But Martin stood still, and began to ask tbe Irishman questions. His looks corrobo rating hts replies, satisfied him that the loss he had just met was tbe loss of the means for getting bread for bis children. The man was in deep distress. "I csn't wait here," Godwin1 spoke, with some Impatience. "Come or I shall bsve to leave you. That picture wil! be at home before I get there." "Go oa then, I must look a little farther into thia case," said Martin quite in ear neat. "Humph ! You wilt haftf your hands" full if you stop to look into every case of this kind." Godwyn spoke a little contemptu ously and then went forward." "Ah, Martin!" said be, as (he latter en tered his store about two hoars afterward. "How comes on ' your Irishman and dead horse I" There was an1 amused expression on bis fase. . "Badly eftougb at present," was afilwefedf. "Poor ieliowt The fteath ef his horse is to' him indeed a calamity; like tbe burning of a mechanic's ihop With all bis fcCula; or the sfn&irig of a merchants ship wftereiA wad all his fortune . But I think we can pot him all right with the world again, and at a very small cost to ourselves. 1 prtfpose that five individuate contribute ten dollars each, and buy him another horse. Here is the Rat I have put down my name, and Gregg has followed suit. You will make the third and I know who to calculate' oi for the fourth and fifth subscriptions'." Martrnr only partly unfolded his subscrip tion paper,' for a strong negative came in stantly into the fare ot Godwyn. "I'm too poor to make ten-dollar subscrip tions for tbe purchase of cart horses for beg garly Irishmen," he answered. . "If I once undertook that business, I would soon hsve my hands full. Take my advice, and keep money, your time, your pleasant feelings, and don't waste either in the thankless task of collecting money to pay for dead hor ses." But Martin though disappointed was not tnrned Irom bis good purpose. He succeed ed in getting thirty-five dollars aubscribed, and then adding fifteen from his own purse, be went to the bumble abode ol the poor Irishman, whom he found half stupid with despondency, amid his sorrowful wife and children. "Come, come, Jimmy Maguirel" he said cheerfully, "this will never do. Brighten up, man I" 'There's no brightening up for me, yer bonor,"replied Jimmy sadly. "Poor Barny is kilt dead," and he drew bis band across hia eyes. "The cart's of no use now, and if I was to die for it, I couldnt find money to buy another horse. Och! yer honor and what ia to become of us all" The picture that Martin looked npon in that humble abode lay all in a deep ahadow. There was not upon it a aingle gleam of sunshine. "What did Barny costt" . "I paid thirty-five dollars for him in hard earned money, and ha waa chaps at that, yer honor." , . ' .

As we grow older, we insensibly fall into the babit of looking upwards.

Oh! let us then give beauty and happiness to the future by sets of kindness by tender char i.ies by deeds of human love. These will group themselves into pictures, upon which, as years glide away, and the eyes look more and more inward, we will gaze with purest delight; for time cannot deface them, nei ther will familiarity rob them of a living in terest. . BOWISQWILD OATS- Br T- S. ARTHUK. Many a young man has" been lured from tha path of virtue, and enticed into the road J that leads by an easy descent into the ae cursed vslley of destruction, through tbe thoughtless speech of some thoughtless per son, talking flippantly about sowing wild oats, as a thing to be expected in youth. "I had one lesson on this subject from tbe lips of an sged counselor," said a valued friend to me, not long since, "which never has been forgotten. The timely warning saved me. 1 was nineteen years of age and had just entered college. Young men were there from nearly every State in the Union, and some of them were already sadly cor rupted. I was social, in high health and spirits, snd was in i in magi nation ever carry ing myself beyond the actual and tbe pres ent. Before I had time for reflection, and even before a conaiousness of wrong had reached me, 1 was afloat on a dangerous sea, my boat gliding swiftly forward and the sy ren's eong already in my ear. Oue night we had a wine party, in the town which ended io excesses, tbe thought ef which has called a burning blush to my cheeks a hundred times since'. I bad not been very well for some days previously, suf fering from a constant headache, and low febrile symptoms. The dissipation of a night turned the scale upon the wrong side, and I was so ill on the next day that it was thought best to call a physician. He Was an' old man, of the old school gentlemen, and wise, thoughtful and kind. He commenced at once, the business of finding out everything in regard to my habits, principles and modes of lliotfght, and t'rrere was something in' hi fit' (hat so inspired me with' confidence, that I concealed noth ing. He looked grave and uffered a remon strance: "CV'taid f.atm'ost ligu'tl, "yotfng' itteii must sow their wild oats.

Is a garden better prepared tot the reception' of good seed, for having first been permitted (o groW weeds? It is no mere comparison, thai of the fiifmen' soul to' a garden.

'3fy stranger friend.1 I have lived almost the completion of Kfe's esfihty eyeftr and have seen a sad number of young men lost, to tbe world, lost to themselves, and lost, I fear, to tbe company of God's blessed angels, in consequence of that single idea town into tbe earth of their minds. Oil, cast if tftft at once! Keep yourself pure. Let right prin ciples, chaste thoughts, noble purposes, man. ly aims grow in your garden not the ac cursed wild oats! Be prudeut, temperate, virtuous, obedient to superiors, honorable, and kind. Aim to be a man not a sensual ist. Govern yourself as a mau, instead of letting passion, appetite or say sensaal de sire rule you as a tyrant. Sow no more wild oats. You will find trouble enough in ) our after life with the seeds already scat tered in your fields." "Tbe scales," said my friend, "dropped at once from my eyes. 1 saw that the good old physician waa right, and that this cant about aowing wild oats involved one of the most dangerous fallacies into which the mind of a young man could fall. It waa my last folly of this kind." TURNING THE GRINDSTONE. "When I waa a little boy," aaid Or.

I To youth, evening is delightful, it accords with the flow of his light spirits, tbe fervor of his fancy, and softness of his heart. Even ing is also the delight of virtuous age; it seems an emblem to the tranquil close of busy life serene, placid, mild, the impress of his great Creator stamped upon it; it Spreads its quiet wings under the grave,' and seems to promise that all sli'a'Il be peace be yond it: Where fs Frasler's Hirer. The recent discoveries o'f gold on Frazier's River wilt lead many to examine their maps in vain for the purpose of finding the precise fotallity of this now important stream.'

Charles Maokay ia a Slave-Pan. The fallowing is from a recent letter of Charles Mackay to the London Illustrated News: On my first arrival at New Orleans, t lin gered for a few moments at the open door o'f s slave depot without daring to go in, lest I should be suspected of espinontge,' or mere curiosity, and expelled. But seeing among the company an eminent merchant of New York, whose friendship I had been fortunate enough to make,' and who'ni I knew to be no' slavedealer of sup porter of slavery, I walked in and joTaed his party, drawn thither like myselt by curiosity. On one side Of the room the male slaves with' clean' linen, a&l shining new boats,' were arranged; and on the other the females were disposed in their best attire, most o'f them' exceedingly neat, but some bedizened with1 ribbons, of colors more Caring and! tawdry than elegant or ap propriate. I was immediately beset With' entreaties" to purchase. "Boy me," aaid' a' young' negreas',' who spoke French' and no English; "I am agoo'd cook a good needlewoman. Buy me." "Buy me,'" said another, in the same lan guage; "1 am accustomed to' children,. and caii make myself useful in the nursery." I fell'a sensation somewhat similar to' that of the first qualm o'f sea'-s'icSness" to be so' ad dressed by my fellow creatures a' feeling of a'ausoa," as if I were ab'out to be ifl." t told the poor woman that I was a stranger,' who had not come to buy.. But they were in credulous; and when at last convinced; tbey returned to' their seats with a sigh and1 an ex pression 61 deep' di'sadpulntment on their dark and go'o'd-humored features. I enter tained such a hatred of slavery that, bad ft been in' my power to abolish it iu one instanV off the face, of the. earth by the mere ex pressToh' of my will, at that instant slavery would have ceased to exist.' I then walked to th'e'side of the slave mart Where f was 5'eset by similar entreaties, urg- j . r r. -5J eu in every variety oi iohv urn niauuer, aim by almost every variety of laborer and hand icraftsman'.

One man who to my experienced ete'e ae'trwed ss white ss myself, aftd whom I at once pot down in my own mind as an Irishman of the purest quality, of tho comity at Cork got up from his seat as f passed, and asked me to buy him. "1 ant a" good? gardo'cf, your honor,' aaid he, with an unmistakable brogue; "I am al so a bit of a carpenter, and can look after the horses, and do any sort of s job about the house." "But you are joking," aaid I "you are an Irishman?" "My father was an Irishman," be said. At thia moment tbe tlavedealet and own er of the depot eame up. "Is there not a mistake here?" I inquired. "This is a white man." "His mother was a nigger," ha replied. "We have sometimes much whiter men for aale than ha is. Look at his hair and lips. There ia no mistake about him." Again the sickness came over me and I , ftif I ,.'" ' "f.r-w ! W a" longed to get into the open air to breathe a purer atmosphere.
