Tfce following "business scene"from "Never too Late to Mend ' Is scarcely excelled by any thing from the pen of Dickens: Meadow* found Mr. Clinton at Peel's. ?? Mr. Clinton, I want a man of intelligence to be at my service for twenty four hours. I give y<m the 15rat offer, fir " Mr. Clinton replied that really he had ?u many irons in the fire, that twenty-?pur houra?~ Meadow! jat a fifty-pound note on the ta ble "Will all your Iron* Iron you out fifty pound* as quick aa that ?" " Why, hem?'* " No, nor five. Come, air, sharp U the word, Can you be my servant for twenty-four hour* for fifty pounds? yes or no!" " Why, this is dramatic?yes V " It is half past two. Between this and lour o'clock I must buy a few hundred acres in Australia a fair bargain.'' " llumph' Well, that can be done I know aa old fellow that has land in every part ef the globe." " Take me to him ." In ten minutes they were in one of those dingy narrow alleys in the city of London that look the abode of decent poverty, end they eould afford to bur Grosvenor Square for their stables; and Mr. Chilton introduoed his friend to a bleir eyed merchant in a large room pa pered with maps; tho windows were incrusted, mustard and ere* might have been grown fiom them Beauty in clean linen collar and wrist bands would have shone here with intolerable lu true; but the blear eyed merchant did not eome out bright by contrast; he had taken the local color. You could see him, and that was all, like a partridge in a furrow; a snuff colored coat; coa; rusty all but the collar, and that greasy; poor as its collar was, his linen had thought it worth emulating; blaek smith nails, cotton wipe, little bald place on head, but didn't shine for the same reason the windows didn't. Mr. Clinton approached his "dhirrty money," this rusty coin, in the spirit of fiunkeyism "Sir," said ho in alow reverential tone, "this party is dispose! to purohase a few hundred acres in the colonies." Mr. Rich looked up from his desk and point ed with a sweep of his pen to the walls There ure the maps . the red crosses are my land. They are numbered. Refer to the mar gin of map and you will find the aeres and the latitude and longitude calculated to a frac tion. When you have settled in what part of tho world you buy, come to me again ; time ii gold. And the blear-eyed merchant wrote, and sealod, and filed, and took no notice of his ouxtomers. They found red crossos in several of the United States, in Canada, in Borneo, in nearly all the colonic*, and as luck would have it, they found one small cross Within thirty miles of Bathurot, and the margin de scribed it as five hundred acres. Mr. Meadows stepped toward the desk. "1 have fjund a small property near Ba? thurat." "Bathurst? where is tint V* 44 In Australia." "Suit?" " If the price suits. What is the price, Sir*" 44 The books must toll us that." Mr. Rich stretched out his arm and seised a ledger and gave it Meadows. " I hare but once price for land, and that is five per oent profit on my outlay Book will tell you what it stands me in: add five per cent to that, and take the land away or leave it." With this curt explanation Mr Rich re sumed his work. " It 6oems you gave five shillings an acre, sir." said Mr. Clinton. ?' i'ive times five bun* drod shillings, one hundred and twenty five pounds. Interest at five per oent, six pounds five." ?' W hen did I buy it ?" asked Mr. Rich. ?4 Oh ' when did you buy it, sir ?" Mr. Rich snatched the book a little pettish ly and gave it to Meade ws. 44 You make the calculation," said he; 44 the figures are all there. Ccme to me when you have made it." The land had been bought twentv-seven years and some months ago. Mr. Meadows made the calculation in a turn of the hand, and announced it Rich rang a hand-bell. Another snuffy figure, with a stoop and a bald head and a pen came through a curtain. 4> Jones, verify that calculation." " Penny half-penny two pence, penny half penny two pence. Mum mum ' Half-penny wrong, air." 44 There is a half penny wrong," cried Mr. Rich to Meadow* with a most injured air. 44 There is, sir," said Meadows, 44 but it is on the right side for you. I thought I would make it even money against myself." "There are oalv two ways, wrong and right," was the reply. 44 Jones, make it right. There, that is the price for the next half hour; after business hours to day add a day's inter est; and, Jones, if be does not buy, write your calculation into the book with date?save time next customer c >me? for it ' 14 You need not trouble Mr. Jonas," said Meadows. 441 take the land. Here are two hundre-l and fifty pounds?that is rather more than half the purchase money." 41 Junes, count." ??When c*n 1 have the deeds, sir?" 4* Ten to morrow." ? 41 Receipt for two hundred and fifty pounds," sail Meadows, falling into the other's kev. "Jones; write receipt?two. five, naught " 41 Write me an agreement to sell," proposed Meadows 44 No, you write it; I'll sign it. Jonei, en ter transaction on the books Have you any thing to do, young gentleman ' ' 44 No. sir " Then draw this pen through the two crosses <ui the map and margin, liood morning, gen tlemen." And the money making machine rose and dismissed them as be had received them, with a short sharp business conge. Ye fair, who turn a shop head over heel*, maul sixty yards of ribbon and buy six, which being sent home, insatiably becomes your de sire to change it for other six which y? e had fairly, closely, and with all the powers of your mind, compared with it during the seventy minutes the purchase occupied, 'at me re spectfully inform you that the above l usiaess took just eight minutes, and that 44 when it was done,'twas done.''
