There was one clear shining star
that used to come out in the sky be

above the uraves. It was larger and

the others, and evnrv ni'dit tlw.v
watched for it, standing hand in hand

And so the time came, all too soon!

His sister's angel lingered near the
entrance of the star, and said to the
leader among those who had brought
the people hither.
'Is mv brother come V
And fie eaid 'No.'
She was turning hopefully away,
when the child stretched out his arms,
and cned, 'Oh, sister, I am here !

There was a hah)' tarn to
iirutiicr to the clttld : nml while he
was so little tout be never vet
pokeu a word, he stretched his tinv
lortn out on his bed and died.
Again the child dreamed of the
open star and of the company of an -
gcla, and the train of j-eoplc, and the
rows of angels, with their beaming
eyes turned upon those people's fa -
ct'V. ....
Said his sister's angel to the lead -
'Is my hrothcr come V
And ho unid, 'Not that

And tho child beheld his brother's
angel in her arms: he cried, 'Oh,
sister, I am here ! take me !' and she
turned and smiled ujkmi him, and the
star was shining
lie grew to he a young man, and
was busy to his books, when an old
servant came to him and said :
'Thy mother is no more. I bring
her blessing on her darling son.'
Again at night he saw the star,
and all that former company. Said
his sister's angel to the leader.
'Is my brother come ?'
And he said, 'Thy mother.
A mighty cry of joy went forth
through all the star,' because the
mother was rc-united to her two chil
dren. And he stretched out his arms
and cried, '0, mother, si-ter, and
hrothcr, I am here ! Take me !' and
they answered him, 'Not yet,' and the
star was shining.
He grew to be a man, wjiosc hair
was fuming grey and he was tilting
in his chair by the fireside, heavy
with grief, and his face bedewed with
tears, when the star opened once a
gain. Said In3 sister's angel to the lead
er, 'Is my brother come V
Ajid he said, 'Nay, but his maiden
And the man who had been the
child saw his daughter, newly lost to
him, a celestial creature among those
three, and ho said, 'my daughter's
head is on my sister's bosom, and her
arm is round my mother's neck, and
at her feet there is the baby of old
time, and I can bear tho parting from
her, Goil be praised !'
And the star was shining.
Thus the child came to lie an old
man, and his once smooth face was
wrinkled, and his steps were slow and
feeble, and his back was bent. And
one night as he lay upon his bed, bis
children standing round, he cried, as
he had cried so long ago :
'i sec the star.

There are many people who dislike
the name of Mechanic, ami who would
rather than put their children to an
honest trade, lug hard ut their bu-iness
nml live, sparingly fur the purpo.se of giv
ing Ihi'in a college education. They
think meanly of him who wears tbe
leathern apron and is not diessed up in
finnrv ami show. This we. believe is
the principal nason whv there are
manv ilettifie'ers nml other kind, of vau -
ahonds in the world. .Manv a Mm ha,
been rent to college, with the expecta
tion of hi, parents highly excitul; but
like the fable of the mountain, he pin

Anil we have no doubt there are manv
I !lt
mechanics who would have iood hi"h
the bar had ihey Ineu blessed with a
liberal education, lint if a child have
talents, they will not remain hid ; ami
no matter what his trade or pro'essinn
i, they will sooner or later hurst foilh.
There are many distinguished imliid-j
uaU in the literary ttoild who were
bred to meelninicul trade Mont- nf i
the editors of our bet conducted four-
nal, were mechanics, and do credit to
the station? they occupy. And our me
chanics, too, geneially 'peaking, are
the mo-it industrious and mo;t mom!
part of the c immunity. 'J'hey nte al
most always busily employed. Itul it is
apt to be otherwise with professional
men. They are often diliatory, la?y.
It is an elfoit for them lo bend their
minds to a dilficult pursuit. They are
well informed, because they spend
the much of their time in reading ; but
this i, an unprofitable biiiiie,uuless we
have some definite object in view.
We would not bn umleritrxnl to think
lightly offi professional men, for we,
do not. We wish to address our-elvcs
particularly to those parents who are
hesitating what occupations to give their
children. Are they ingenious, or fond
of mechanical pur-uits? (Jive them a
trade. Do they love study, and can
not they civil lliei.-ailcnlioii to anything

your children ehxis: themselves what
trade or profession they will follow ;
and what they select w illgencrally prove

The distressed needle women of Iin
don, have been made the olrject of n
Commission of Impiiry instituted by
the Morning Chronicle. Three gen
tlcmcn, well known in literature,
have examined the stale of this ut
fortunate class, and the result is, that
there lives in L indon a body of il-"),
(KH) women employed iu the business
of apparel making, of wlum liSiOU
are under twenty year of ago, and
a very large propoi lion of them are
subsisting, or attempting to subsist,
on their earnings, which are from two
and a half to four and a half pence u
The greater portion of these poor
creatures, living as they do, far be
yond the social state, resort to prosti
tution as a means of eking out their
miserable siihdstence , whenever tho
pressure threatens their extinction,
then they turn into the Rtreet, and
pauperism runs into inevitablu vice.
Since tho disclosures of the Morning
Chronicle, many humane persons havo
furwarded considerable sums of mo
ney to the ollice of that journal for
iii-.il mutton among the most necessi
tons; and Mr. Sidney Herbert hat
com'' forward to found u society for
promoting their emigration. Them
is something like Ii ill' a million of
women in excess of men in (ircat
Ilrtuiu ; tliero is a corresponding ex
cess of mules iu the J5nti,h Austrian
Colonics. The Society above men
tioned aims to bring these marriagea
hie panic- in contact ; and it is hop
ed, that when once it i, in operation,
Cioverninent will assist it with funds.
It costs some X l.'i to transport a pas

this will only relieve 'JO 00 of the suf
