Oh I nerer speak with angry tone To one within this erring world ; Let no vindictive look be shown, Nor be thy lip with passion curled ; For man at best is frail as dust, And God alone is truly just. Speak kindly to the little child. Lest from his heart you drive away The light of love whose visions mild Are opening like the dawn of day ; Force not one cloud across the heaven, A God of loTe to him hath given. Speak kindly to each fallen one, Nor harshiy judge his sinful deed ; There lives no soul beneath the sun Tha!uoes not of compassion need; Our race is erring at the best, And judgment is not thy behest. lie kind to all, and thus fulfil The first great duty here below ; Let wonts or love our heans distil, To mitigate thy brother's woe ; For though in pride and guilt he swells, His heart its own deep anguish tells. torn for CilDrcn. THE OLD SOLDIER. "Kan here, girls, juiek ! Just look at this awful old wan, with his wooden leg and white beard," said Mary Norton, as she stood on the cross-bar of the feuce enclosing the tcboul Louse grounds. ''Come quick, for Le stumps along pretty fast. It is Mathu?alah come back agaiu, I reckon," added the witty but irrevercut girl. ''Let us go out aud have some fun with the old man." A general rush followed this announce ment ; but at the siijht of the aged vet eran, there was not the shout of merri ment that .Mary had expected Some laughed a little, at first; but with most ef them, curiosity gave place to a fjuiet awe ; aud on one sweet face, there was an expression of affectionate reverence, which couid nut be mistaken. One word from Nellie Mati.-field at that momeDt, would have called forth from many of those young hearts an expression of the feelings which e&histed iu her own. "Why don't you laugh ?" said Mary. "1 do not see anything to make fun of," said Nellie. "I cannot laugh at white hairs. They remind u:e of dear grand papa." As she brushed away a tear that gathered in Ler dark eyes, the gir!s invol untarily drew nearer to her, and shrunk away from their more boisterous compan ion, j 15y this time, the old soldier for sueh he proved to bo had advanced aloug the retired road that skirted t'ie play-ground, and was directly opposite the gates. The girls a'l flocked out iuto the road, and stood silently gazing at him. He stopped aud leaned ajainst a tree wearily. "Well, children, you have come out to see an old man ; and lie is a queer looking object, isn't he ?" His voice was kiudly in its tone, and even Mary Norton forgot that she bad intended to make sport of his iufiniKilics. "You seem (o be very tired, Sir," said Nellie Mansfield. "There are some bench es in the grounds. Will you come in and rest yourself ?'' ''Thank you, my child ; you arc very thoughtful. I am tired, for 1 have walk ed a long distance." As he approached the gate, the children instinctively drew back. "Don't be afraid," be said, "I love children too well to harm them, but age and infirmity are not pleasant to the eye. I remember well when I felt as you. do now."(r "We aro not afraid," said one or two, drawing near to him, and regretting that they had wounded him. "No, sir, we are not at all afraid," said Nellie, "and here is a seat for you." As he sat down he drew a long breath,, and said cheerfully, ''You sec, my dear, that I have not only niy wooden leg, but the weight of almost eighjy years to carry. It is a heavy burden but God wills it and it is a long time to be in this world." "Yes. sir," said Nellie, "and the day is very warm." "But the warm sun comes gratefully to the aged," he replied. "Thank God, we can see that, and feel it too. His sun shine3 for dl. Blessed be bis name !" He lifted his bat reverently, and his eye involuntarily glanced upward. The act drew Nellie at once to his side. "Tba is tfce way- dear grandpapa. tlwajWiEod bless you, children !" Bent them peaks of r," eho thought;'1" $ Wpi-t fiw-fbrfcavios terun to d 1 wonder why younger people do not love Him so?" She sat down oa the bench beside him. "Can we do anything for you, sir V "A glass of water, if you please, my child." Half a dozen at once ran to bring it; and Nellie, from her lunch lasket, took a piece of cake which he gratefully receiv ed. "So you are not af'rjid of . such an ugly old fellow, after all," he said, smil ing, and looking rouud upon the group. "Oh, no, sir," came from many voices. "Well, the leg went in a good cause, children. So I will not complain; and its loss saved the life of a comrade." . "Please tell us about it, sir," aud the children drew closer around him. "I lost it in the war of 1S12. I sup pose you have read about that in history. But war to the readers, and war to the actors in it, are two very different thiugs, X we Bcarina, kl m y4iy cuiurt f.lcw, when I lost my leg on the deck of 'the f.i-ate Constitution,' but I've n.t been od for much since. I was removing a wouuded friend from an exposed positidwlt when the ball came. I was glad that I saved him, for he had a wife and children, and I had none then. 1 had a right to a pension, but I never applied for it." "Why not. sir '!" said several of the girls at once, with sympathy in their tones. "Well, I lived far b-ek in the country, and had no friends in Washington. So, as long as I could labor, 1 managed to support myself and to lay by enough fur my few remaining years. I have one comfort in my old age. God has given me a daughter. Blessed be His name." Seated ia the shadow of the school house, the old soldier seemed comfortable and happy, and his young auditors listened to him with attention and revereucc. After pat taking of the refreshments of fered hiui, ho said, "Well, children, you are all young now, but if you live lung enough, aire with its infirmities will come, and then you will know how gratifying it is to receive such kindness, as you have shown me to day. Ouee in a while I go Dut to enjoy the air and sunshine; and they have enticed uie farther than I have walked Jur a year before. I am now awhile from home, and when I reached this r,ate, I was wishing that seats by the road.-ide had been provided for travelers. But I am keepiug you too long from your pl.iy, or your studies," aud he made an at te:i pt to rise. Half a dozeu voices exclaimed at once, "Oh, no, sir, sit still, our recess lasts a whole hour, and we do not care to play now." "You aro good children," he said, "and very different from those who mocked the prophet Elisha. You have read that storp in the Bible 1" Some of theai remembered it, others did not. "Let mo tell you then. Elisha, the jrophct, the servant of God, was on his way to Bethel, when children came out of the city and mocked him, saying, 'Go up, thou bald head ! Go itp, thou bald head." Then the prophet turned back, and cursed them ia the name of the Lord. And God, in order to punish them, sent two bears out of the'wood, and they tore in pek.es forty and two of them. So He matiifestea His anger against them. But He will bless you all, I am sure, for your kindness to the aged." As she listened to his cotnmendation, Mary Norton shrank back into the crowd, mortified and self condemned for having ridiculed his infirmities. He left them, refreshed and gratified. Thai nightNellie Mansfield lay down upon her pillow, hap pier 1'ar than Mury Norton, at the retro spect of thetday ; but Mary was ansious to atoae for the rust, aud she did not rest till she had discovered the home of the veteran. She was among the first who visited Lim there, aud front time to time the school girls cheered his declining days by carryiag to him flowers from the woods, or some little delicacy procured for him from their homes. But Nellie Mansfield went farther than all. She told the story to her father, who applied to the I'ensioa Agent at Washington, and the sum which was found due to the old soldier ot 1812 was sufficient to make a little fortune fui his declining years, and to enable him amply to provide for the devoted daughter he was to leave behind As every visit, the glad welcome, aud jtlfos good deeds, which at the last, will ; Secu. xor mem me vcru.cv : , ,AeIl done, good and faithful ; enter .i .i ye mo tne joy ot your .Lord."

One of his first measures was to open a school io a remote part of the pari.h, and get the room licensed for a week-day preaching. But all the drunkard rose against such unheard of proceedings They wquld run after him, cursing, hoot ing, and discharging volleys of sods aed o:her misales. Fiuding remonstrance in vain, be adopted another course on the Wednesday evening in the'week bcfjre I heard the story. Making a stand in the middle of the road at the entrance to the lumict, jut as the stcrm arose aud look ing the savages in the face, he addressed tbeni thus, iu a firm, quiet voice, which commanded their affcntion : "My good fellows, I have borne this bcntJjr 1W some llas, tJUC DOW T l.inst put a stop to it: and I'll do it in jour own way. Choose your host man aud we'll fight it out. If I teat you'll give ulV' '1 hey looked at him unbelievingly ; but throwing his coat aside, he-added : "I am in earnest send your man." The ruffians put their heads together and then a burly giant s'epped forth and made a furious dash at his reverend chal lenger, who quietly parried the unskillful blows, and played with them for a few seconds. But then a fist was planted in the peasant's chest, and he lay, at full length on the ground. Quietly gathering himself up, however, he skulked away and joined his companions. "Now s?ud your next best, and I'll go through the lot of you." Again their heads, drew together, and an other drew down his jacket, going to work however with a more cautious euerjry. But at once a stomacker stretched him on the road. "Your next !" Once more a conglomerate of dense pates was formed. "Bill, thee teck him." Bill eyed the hero askance and shook his head. "Thee, Jim." A shake of the head from Jim also. "Dick, the'll take the parson ?" A shake more decided and stiff. "Nay, nay, I see thee hung fust." And now the Erst one who wai van quished stood forward, and, like a brfve man, called out ; "I say, parson, yo'r a rare young un, you are. l'se tell thee what, we'er going to hear you preach." And they all followed him along the little street, said the writer, and heard the word quietly, adding, it remains to be seen what will become of the fiirht. What did come of it? I heard a long time nfterward that fiom that day the men doffed their hats, women courtsied, and children looked awe stricken when they met or passed him, that the beer houses were nearly all shut up, and that a great moral aud religious reformation was in progress. That gentlcutoa had previously been the instrument of like changes in equally demoralized, parishes. . I may add that a few years back he was deemed the fittest clergyman in the church to go out as a bishop to a scene of great personal danger in a heathen country. Manchester Examiner.

A party of six yuuug people who were atu-uding sieging cboul near Chain Lake Marion county, Miuucssota, on the night of the loth inst., started fur home, a dis tance of a utile aud a half with au ox team. After remaining out two nights aud a day the team got home, driven by one of the boys, the only one able to w alk, having on the sled thiee girls luck ed together iu the cold embrace of death, auuther girl badly frozen, and the boy nut quite so bad. The boy that was froz en the least says he supposed the cattle would go home, but instead went in an other ditection.. and stopped, in a lare marsh about a mile from the school-house, where they remained two nights and a day. When it cleared so that they could see, they started for home, and arrivod io' the condition above stated. The names of those frozen to death were Mary and Louisa Landaker, and Amanda l'resler. Melancholy Case A Troy paper states that a few weeks since a well knewu gentleman living in Mechauiesville lost an only daughter a beautiful, educated and accomplished, young lady. She was the pride and glory of the father's heart. His auguish was of that character which refused all comfort and consolation. Bu riLg the coldest nights he would often leave his home, go to her grave and lie down upon the lrczen clods that covered her remains, uttering the wildest and most heart-reuding lamentations over the tomb of his darling. In this way he spent many nights, when not forced or kindly entreated home by the other members of the household. The father's grief was too intense for human endurance. Grad ually the strong frame began to show signs of decay the mind to give evidence of growiug weakness. Three or four days since, this disconsolate mourner died literally died of a broken heart.
