Ac. fe •*) THE DAILY DISPAT TUB HOLD SOTBBKION. Tbe afory of the gold sovereign, related to me by Judge N., a gentleman of wealth and influence in Western New Vork, is well worth repeating; not for artificial interest, which it does not contain, but for the admirable lesson it conveys to young persons commencing life. I regret that I ain unable to reproduce the spirit and humor with which the inimtable Judge graced his simple story; but I will do my best to remember bis own words, i " Wh - ' Wttß * years old," said Judge N., "my father and mv mother being poor, with half a dozen children better than myself to take care of, 1 was given to a far mer in the town of F., who designed making a ploughboy of me, and keeping me in his service until I was of age. not a B a 7 t' me » n Deacon Webb s service; for although be was an honest deacon, and a tolerably kind man in his family, he believed in making boys work, and understood how to avoid spoiling them by in dulgence. "So I had plenty of work to do ; and an abun dant lack of indulgences to enjoy. It was consequently a great treat for me to get the enormous sum of one or two pennies into my possession by any sort of good fortune—a cir cumstance of such rare occurrence, thatatthe age of eleven, I had learned to regard money as a blessing bestowed by Providence only on a favored few. 3 "Well, I hnd lived with Deacon Webb three years before I knew the color of any coin ex cept Tile copper. By an accident I learned the color of gold. 1 hat is the story I am going to tell >ou. & "One Saturday night, Mr. Webb sent me to the village store on some errand; and, on returning home, just about dusk, my attention was attracted by a little brown package, lying on the road side. ' I picked it up to examine its content*, without the least suspicion of the treasure withiu. Indeed, it was so light, and the vol. of brown paper appeared so large, that I un doubtedly suspected that I was the victim of an April fool, although it was the month of June. I tore open the fold# of the paper, how ever; and. discerning nothing, I was on the point of throwing it into the ditch, when some thing dropped out of it, and fell with a ring ing sound upon a stone. "I looked at it in astonishment. It was yellow, round, glittering, too bright and too small for a penny, I felt of it, I squeezed it in my fingers, I spelled out the inscriptions; then something whispered me that it was a gold coin of incalculable value, and that, if I did not wish to lose it, I had better pocket it as soon as possible. "Trembling with excitement, I put the coin in my pocket. But it would not stay there.— Every two minutes I bad to take it out and look at it. But, whenever I met somebody, I careful to put it out of sight. Some how, I felt a guilty dread of finding an owner to the coin. Provided I found none, I thought it was honestly mine, by right of discovery, and 1 comforted mya»lf with the sophistry that it was not my business to go about the streets, crying, 'Who's lost?' "I went home with the gold in my pocket.— Fwould not have had the deacon's folks know what 1 had found, for the world. I was sorely troubled with the fear of losing my vast and incalculable treasure. This was not all. It seemed to me that my face betrayed my secret. I could not look at anybody with an honest eye. "These troubles kept me awake half the night, and projects for securing my treasure by a safe investment, of the other half. On the following morning, I was feverish and nervous. When Deacon Webb, at the break fast table, said. "'William!' "'I started and trembled, thinking the next wordrf would be— •"Where is that piece ofgolJ you have found and wickedly concealed, to keep it from the rightful owner?' "But he only said, "I want you to go to Mr. Baldwin's this morning, and ask him if he can come and work for ine to-duy and to-morrow.' "I felt immensely relieved. I left the house, and got out of sight as soon as possible — Then ouce more I took the coin out of my pocket, and feasted on its beauty. Yet I was unhappy. Consciousness of.wrong troubled me, and I almost wished I had not found the sovereign. Would I not be called a thief, if discovered ? I asked myself. Was it not as wrong to conceal what 1 had found, as to take the same amount originally from the owner's pocket ? Was not be defrauded the same ? "But then I said to myeelf.— "Why, if I don't know who the loser is, how can I give him his money ? It is only because I am afraid Deacon Webb will take it awny from me, that I conceal it j that's all. 1 would not steal gold; and if the loser should ask me for it, I woud grve it to him. I apologized thus to invself all the way to Mi. Baldwin's hoi-se; but after all, it wouldn't do. The gold was, like a heavy stone, bound to my heart. It was a sort of unhappy .cbarin. which gave an evil spirit power to torment me. And I could not help thinking that I was not half so well pleased with my immense riches as I had been with a rusty copper, which f had found before. Nobodv claimed the penny, although I kept mv good torlune no secret; and 1 hud been as "happy as a King—or as a King is commonly suppos ed to be. "Mr. Baldwin was not at home; and I ro turned to the deacon's house. I saw Mr. Wunlly's horse standing at the gate, and I was terribly frightened. Mr. Wardly was a consta ble; and 1 knew he hud come to take me to jail. So 1 li d in the gardeu until he went away. By that time reason began to prevail over cowardice, and 1 made my appearance at the house. The deacon looke'd angrily at me, "Now, thought I, feeling faint, he's going to accuse me of finding the gold. "But he only scolded me for being so long about mV errand. I never received a repri mand so willingly. His severe words sounded sweet, 1 had expected something eo much more rreriible. ',1 worked all day with the gold in my pock et. I wonder Deacon Webb did not suspect somthing, I stopped eo o.'ten to see if the gold was really there, for, much as the possession of it troubled me, the fear of losing it troubled tne scarcely less. I was miserable. J wished a huudiedtiwes I had not found the gold. I felt that it would be a relief to lay it down on the road-eid*; again I wrapped it in brown paper, just as 1 h.td found it. I wondered if ill-got wealth made everybody so miserable. "At night I wassent again to Mr. Baldwin's and, haviug found him, obtained his promise to work at Deacon Webb'* ou the following day. "It was dark whenj went home, and I was afraid of robbers. I never felt so eoirardly in my life. It seemed to me that anybody could rob me with a clear conscience, because my treasure was not mine. 1 got home, and went tretnhline to bed. "Mr. liald win came early to breakfast with us. I should tell you something about him. lie was a honest, pour man, who supported a large family by hard work. Everybody liked hiai; he was so industrious and faithful; and, besides good wages for bia labor, be "I 1 " * of P« rk . «° 'hat be wight eat and ET.ES? rzr "'Your misfortune?, "•Yes.' 14 'Why, what haa happened to you f asked the deacon. "'I thought everybody had heart of it,' replied Baldwin. You see, the other Bight, when tar. Woodly paid me, he gave roe a gold piece.' "I started, and felt the blood forsake my cheeks. All eyes were fixed npon Baldwin, however, so my trouble was not observed. •"A sovereign,'said Baldwin—'the first one I ever had in my life; and it seemed to me that if 1 shonld put it in my pocket, like a cent or a half dollar, I should lose it. So, like a goose, I wrapped it in a piece of paper, and stowed it in my coat pocket, where I thought it was safe. I never did a more foolish thing. I must have lost the coin in taking out my handkerchief; and the paper would prevent its making any noise as it fell. 1 discovered my loss when i got home, and went back to look for it; but some body must have picked it op.' "1 felt like sinking through the floor. "'I e'en't know,' replied the poor man, shak ing his head sadly. 'He's welcome to it, who ever he is; and I hope his conscience wont trouble him more than the money is worth; though Heaven knows I want my honest earn io»s.' "This was too much for me. The allusion to my conscience brought the gold out of my pocket. I resolved to make a clean breast of it, and be honest, in spite of poverty and shame. So I held the gold in my trembling hand, and said, "'ls thi» yours, Mr. Baldwin V "My voice was so faint that he did not hear me. So I repeated my question in a more courageous tone. All eyes were turned upon roe in astonishment; and the deacon demanded where and when I had found the gold. "I burst into tears, and confessed every thine. I expected the deacon would whip me to death. But he patted my head, and said, mote kindly than was his wont; "'Don't cry about it, William. You are an honest boy, if you did come near falling into temptation. Always be honest, my son; and, ifyou do not grow rich, you will be happy with a clear conscience.' "But 1 cried still—for joy. I laughed, too, the deacon had so touched uiy heart. Of what a load was I relieved! I felt then that honesty was the best policy. "As for Baldwin, he declared that I should have half the money, for finding it; but I wish ed to keep clear of the troublesome stuff for a time, and I did. I would not touch his offer; and I never regretted it, boy as I was. "Well, I was the deacon's favorite after this. He was very kind to me, and trusted me in every thing. 1 was carefully not to deceive him; 1 preserved the strictest candor and good faith; and that has made me what I am.— When lie died, he willed me five hundred dol lars with which I came here and bought new lauds, which are now worth a great many sovereigns. But this has nothing to do with tny story. That is told; and all 1 have to add is,_ 1 have never regretted clearing my con science of poor Job Baldwin's sovereign." MAIL ARRANGEMENT.
