And and tho Lord will bless von for it , then ho told me how his life had been And then he looked at mo with his wild bluo eyes in a way that would havo mado me do it if it hadn't boon I'd scon so much of those impostors. Tho war was just over, and every beg gar that came along said ho was a sol dier, traveling home, aud had been wounded and robbed. Ono that I had been fool enough to help, limped away out of sight, as he thought, and then, for I was at the 1 garret window, shouldored his crutch-1 cs and tramped it with tho strongest. . ... t - io doubt but your pocket s full of 4 . i money, i saui, 'ana you ouiy want a chanco to rob and murder mo.

Just then j sho camo to tho door and motioned ' with her mouth to me, 'do let him j sta3-, aunty,' and if I hadn't good senso ' I might, but I knew better than n cliif. i of sixteen. ' 'Go nway with von,' said I, louder tlmn before.

When I oponod tho door again ho camo quito in, and stood leaning on his cane, palo as n ghost, aud his oyes bigger than ever. "Well, of all impudenco,' said I. Ho looked at mo, and said ho, 'Madam, I havo a mothor at Green bank. I want to livo to seo her. I shall not if I go any further to-night.' They all want to seo their mothors,' said I; 'and just then it camo into my mind that 1 hoped my son Charlio, who had been a real soldior, an officer ho had como to bo, mind you, wanted to seo his mothor and would soon,' 'I havo been wouuded, as you see,' 'Don't go to showing mo your hurts,' j said I; thoy buy 'cm, so thoy told mo, to go a begging with now. I read tho I papers, I toll yo, and I'm principled, and so'a our clergyman, agin giving anything, unless it is through somo well organized society. Tramps aro my abomination. And as for keeping you all night, you can not expect that of decont folks Drusilla camo to tho door, and said, 'Let him stay, aunty,' with hor lips aL'ain. but I took no notice. So ho wont, and this timo did not como back, and I sat down by tho lire, I o.i iikIo.uwI in llin wind and sleet, and 1 felt tho warm firo, and smolt tho bale-1 ing cakes, and tho applos stowing, and 1 tho tea drawing on tho kitchen stovo; 1 and I ouuht to havo been very comfor table, but I wasn't. Somothing seomod tugging nwny at my heart all tho timo. I gavo tho firo n poko and lit anoth er candle, to choor myself up, and I wont to my work-basket to got tho sock I'd boon knitting for my Charlio; aud ns I wont to got it I saw somo thing lying on tho floor. I picked it up. It was nn old tobacco pouoh, ovor eo much liko tho one 1 gavo Charlio, with fringo around it, and written ou it with mk, 'Prom Q, V. to R. H.;' and insido was n bit of tobacco, and an old pipe, and a letter, and when I spread it out I saw nt tho top, 'my dear noil.' I know tho beggar must hnvo drop ped H, and then my heart gnvo ono big thump, as if it had been turndd into u hammer. l'crhaps tho story was true and ho had a mother. I "shivered all over, and Iho firo and candles and Iho nico comfortable smells might as well not been at all. I was cold and wretched. And over and ovor again I had to say to myself what I'd heard our pas tor say so often, 'Never give anything to chanco beggars, my fnonds; always bestow your nlm'B on worthy persons, through well organized societies,' be fore I could get a bit of comfort. And what a fool I was to cry, I thought, when I found my cheeks so wet. But I did not cry long; for, as I sal there dash and crash and jinglo camo a sleigh over tho road, and it stopped nt our gate, and I heard my Charlie's voice crying: 'Hallbn, moClicr!' ind I went out to tlio door, and had wnen ton was done, anu no tola us thing things about tho war I'd never heard in danger; how ho had been sot upon by rebels nnd badly wounded; and how at the risk of his own life, a fel low-soldier had saved.hiiii, and carried him away fighting his path back to camp. Td never havo scon you but for him,' says my Ohnrlio. 'And if there's a man on earth I love, it is Rob Hada way the dearest, best fellow.

Why didn't you bring him homo to seo your mother, Charlie i said I. 'Why I'd loved him too, and anything I could do for him, for the man who savo.1 my boy's life, couldn't bo enough. Send for him Charlie.' But Charlio shook his head, and covered his face with his hands. 'Mother,' said ho, 'I don't know whother Rob Hndawnv is alive or dead to-day. hilo 1 was still in tho ranks ho was taken prisoner. And tho rebol prisons aro poor places to livo in, mother. I'd give my right hand to bo ablo to do him any good; but I can find no traco of him. Aud ho has a mother, too, and sho is so fond of him. Sho lives at Greenbank poor old lady. 3' C!ir K00(li noblo Rob, tho prescrv- j or of my hto l j And I saw Charlie was nearly cry ing. Not to lot us seo the tears, ho got up and went to tho mantlo-piecc. I did not look m ound until I heard a cry: 'Grcnt hoavcus! what is this?' And I turned, and Charlio had tho tobacco pouch, tho man had dropped in his hand. 'Where did this como from ?' said ho. 'I feel as though I had soon a ghost. I gavo this to Rob Hadaway tho day ho savod inc. Wo soldiors havo not much to givo, you know, and ho vowed never to part with it whilo ho lived. How did it com0 hcr0' niotllcr ? Aud I fell back in my chair, white and -cold, and said 1, A wandering tramp loft it here. Noyor your Rob, my dear; nover your Rob. Ho must havo been an impostor, I wouldn't havo turned away u persou really in vf nut. 'Oh ! no, no; it's ituothor pouch, child; not that, or ho stolo it. A tall fellow with bluo eyes and yellow-brown hair; wounded ho said, aud going to his mothor at Greonbank. Not your Rob.' And Charlio stood staring at mo with clinched bauds; and said ho, 'it was my Rob, it was my dear old Rob, wounded aud starviiiK my dear old ob, who saved my life, and you havo dnvon him out in such a night as this, mother. My mother to use Rob so !' tjurso me, utuiriio, said 1, 'curso mo if you hko, I'm afraid God will, three times ho camo back. Three, times ho fished only for n crust and a placo to lio, nnd 1 drovo him away. I, I and ho'e lying on tho road now. Oh ! if I had but known.' And Charlio caught up his hat. 'I'll find him if ho is alive,' said ho. 'O Rob, my dear friend.' And then I nover snw tho gjrl in such a takingdowu went Drusilla on her knoos, ns if bIjq was saying her praycru, aud says, 'Thank God I dared to do it!' And snyKrc again to mo: '0 aunt! I'Vo been trembling with fright, uut knowing, what you'd say to mo. I took hiin in Iho kitchen way. I couldn't seo hirn go faint and hungry and wounded, nhdTput him in tho spnro chamber ovcritho parlor, and I'vo been frightened' nil tho while.' 'Lord bless you, Drusilla,' says Charlie, and 'Amen,' says I. And sho, golting"lb6Jdcr, went on, 'And I took him up'a hot short-cako and apple snuco autt tea,' says sho, 'and 1 took him a caudlo, and a hot brick for his foot, nndil told him to eat and go to bed in tho best chambor, aunt Fairfax, with thfi whito counler paino and all, and I locked him in and put tho koy in my poukot and told him ho should havo oneitright's rest, and that no ono should tm him out un less thoy walked ovor.my dead body.' And brusilla said it liko au actress in a tragedy, and w?clrt off into hyster ics Iho moment the words wero out of her mouth. She'd been expecting to bo half murdered for doing it,. you fknow, and tho girLvms 'Ifiit BtStceii, 1 and alwayB before had minded mo as ' if I was ho mother. Never wa3 an oil sinner so happy as I was that night, so thankful to tho g iod Lord; and it would havo done your heart good if you had gono t'o seo tho two meet in the morning Charlie and his friend Hob. And Charlie, who had got on so well, and had a mother that was not poor either, helped Rob into business. And ho got over his wounds at last and grow handsome as a picture, and to-day in a week is going to many Drusilla. 'I'd give you anything I have,' said I, 'and I won't refuse you oven Drusil la,' when ho asked mo, telling mo that he had loved her ever since sho was so kind to him on tho night I've told you of. And Charlio is to stand up with him, and I am to give Drusilla away, and Rob's sister from Greenbank, is to be bridesmaid,, and I havo a guess that somo day Charlio will bring her homo to me to tako Drusilla's place I don't drive beggars from tho door as I used to, and no doubt I'm often imposed upon; but this is what I say, 'Better be imposed upon always, than to be cruel to one who really needs your help' And I've read my Bible bettor of late, and I know who says, 'Even ns yo have dono it unto tho least of those yo havo dono it unto mo.' Demoirsl's Jfagazinc. From Gail Hamilton's Now liool;, entitled Wool Gathering. Farming in Minnesota. For our farming work: wo begin by breaking ground in tho spring just as 4 the -green grass starts." Th plowing will bo easier if we first burn off tlio dead grass. Wo can begin by tho middle of May, and keop at it till tho last of July. Then the field lies till tho next spring. Tho nativo sod is so tough that wo cannot do much with it tho first year. Tho next sp.-ing having come, as soon as tho frost gets out enough to let us cover tho grain well, we sow it. Tho earlier tho better. Tho crop is surer, and tho grain of a better quali-tj-. If frost comes afterwards, or oven snow, there is no harm done. The hardy little kernels have tho insido . track, and laugh at the feblo efforts of I an effete winter. Wo do not sow by I hand as they do in picture books, but with a broadcast sower. With two horses wo go over from ten to fifteen acres a day. An ingenious littlo ar rangement tolls how much grain wo put in tho aero, and how many acres wo go over, with as much accuracy as a time-clock tolls tho hours and min utes. If wo find wo are putting in too much or too little, wo can adjust the machino to a different quantity, as readily as n clock is regulated. Three bushels of oats or 0110 bushel and n half of wheat is tho ordinary allowanco to au acre. Tho machino sows and partially covers tho grain. When it is now ground, wo go over it two or three times with a harrow, and then wo givo it in chargo to Biinshino and rain nnd dew nnd nir till tho harvest-time. Wo have also what wo call sod corn and sod potatoes. Wo simply thrust au ax and a spado in between tho sods, drop the corn, nnd cover it with tho heel; but it does not yield tho best crop. For sod potatoes we plow ono furrow, and plant tho potatoes in it about oighleon inches apart, and close to tho land side, then plow another furrow which covors them. Tho po tatoes como up bctweon tho sods. Thon wo plow threo furrows and drop another row of potatoes. In this man ner wo got our best crop of potatoes. Thoy need no hoeing. Tho land is nocessarily freo from weeds, for thoro aro no soeds for tho woods to spring from. In breaking this ground, tho shallower wo plow tho bettor. Wo want our furrow only two and a half or thrco inchos dcop. Iu harvost-timo wo plow ns nt planting. That turns tho sod ovor and throws up tho pota toes. Wo havo threo or four men or boys to follow and gather tho potatoes which wo havo unearthed. Wo havo now not ouly an oxcollent crop of po tatoes, but wo havo tho land in a bet tor condition for next year's wheat crop than if wo had not plaulod tho potatoes. Now, then, my statistician, what is tho not gain on tho pota toes ? But whilo wo havo boon talking about the potatoes, May nnd Juno nnd July havo been busy in our liolds, and tho wheat is ripened. Wo know noithor sicklo nor cradlo hero, but wo bring up tho horses and the homier. Tlio header aims straight at tho heads of tho wheat, dosigning to got only au much straw as is necessary in order to secure nil tho heads. It leaves tho stubblo from ouo mid n hal( to two foot high. A man steers tho machine with n rvitTdcr, as you steer a boat. Tho rudder a castor whcol. Tho horses aro harnessed in behind tho heador, and movo it like a wheelbar row, and cannot go wrong. Thoy have simply to go wherever tlio heador is steered. A header has four horses abreast, two on each sido of tho tongue. It often cuts twenty-two acres a day. somcliines thirty; tho avcrngo is about eighteen. Tlio slightest rain slopa work. Tho inachino clons, and cram must not bo stacked while damp. Tho heador is accompanied by tho racks, and each rack has two horses and a driver. Tho header-rack is a floor or platform on wheels, with sides of can vas, to catch tho grain thrown from , the header. Wo begin our harvesting returning tho 200,000, ho withdrew , in July. Wo first find tho center of ( the wholo amount of tho securities. i our big lot, then steor our heador j And for tho accommodation tho bank , straight for that center, cutting a I charged tho minimum rato on J2200, j swath as wo go teu feet wide. Our j 000 for six mouths. Such, briefly told, j rack is on tho loft of tho header, aud ! was tho ccleliratcd transaction with when wo first enter, of courso we havo I Mr. Pcabodv in 1857. In America it to trample tho grain sadly. But why, i in saury, uut way, i was tuougiit, inaeea is stilt tnougut, item farmordq you 1 that the Bank of England drovo a beforehand to cutjluirtl bargain with Mr. Pc'nbody; that' i his own right arm, uho .200,000 should not havo been u extravagant western farmordqyou not send n man in down a swath with and so save all the traninlintr ? ! "Oh !" says my lord, "when wo aro working Avith fourteen men and ten horses, it won't do to bother about a handful of wheat." So thoy luugh to scorn our contracted Now England ideas of economy. Having gained tho center, tho header, and its devoted wife, tho rack, go round in as small a circle as possible, say two or three rods i in circumference, and then becrm to : j stack. Tho grain when cut by tho header is thrown by an endless apron, ' revolving like a belt, into tho header rack on its left. This apron is about thirty feet long, lt is mndo of stout canvas cloth, with strips of wood affixed crosswise to car- i ry up tho straw. The header rack i must keep close up under tho spout of tho heador. When ono rack is full, it deposits its load in the center of tho field, whilo another track drives up I immediately and takes its place on the left of tho header. Ono man stands on Iho rack to load, jumping from rack ' to rack as each fresh one comes up. There is one man to stack, aud anoth er to trim up tho stacks. Tho stacks j aro mado twenty-five or thirty fcot long, and nino or ten feet wide, and symmetrically curved and shaped.

There is no doubting that tho as sistance rendered to Mr. Pcabody by tho Bank of England in 1857 has been tho cause of misunderstanding in banking and commercial circles, and of serious and ungenerous prejudice to tho Bank of England; for, over sinco the assistance rendered to Mr. Peabody, everybody hns felt warrant ed in applying to tho Bank of England for holp, when help was needed; and being ignorant of tho terms exacted from Mr. Peabody, the Bank of Eng land has been denounced, when insist ing on adhesion'to its rulo of lending on securities which it approved, al though tho philanthropic American scrupulously complied with tho rule. With tho view of protecting tho Bank of Englaud from unjust aspersion in this matter, and showing tho terms on which it leuds its money in n timo of pressure, wo shall traco the outline of that chapter in tho bank's history, with this word of preface, that our in formation baa been derived directly 11 om ono oi tho principals in tho trans action.

Mr. Pcabody demurred took tho JC200.000, with tho option of tho other JCC00.000 nnd in a fortnight, nftcr was thought, indeed is still thought, forced unon him: that tho additional LC500,000 in securities should not have been received; and that interest for six months should nob havo been charged for tho monoy which was on ly hchl a fortnight. On tho other hand, among ourselves it has been thought, and to somo extent is still thought, that the bank of Englaud having helped America, it is morally bound to carry through Jiinalisnmen: and that it is monstrous for English men to bo refused nftcr what has been dono for Mr. Pcabody.
