Why does she walk alone, mother, Asif she had no friend? Why.does she sigh so oft, mother? . • Is She so near her end? Why does she breathe so quick, mother ; And irtart as if it shocked her To hear the quiet rap, mother, Of Smith, the village doctor? Why does he come so oft, mother? Can he prohmgjrer days By leaving pill’s and gifts, mother, And singing love-sick lays? ’Twas bat the other night, mother, When Kate lay near my heart, She urged me to be good, mother, And said we soon must part. She said she was to go, mother, Away from home and me, And leave papa and you, mother, To dwell near by the sea. Is it on Jordan’s stormy banks, mother, Where she is to be carried ?” “Shut up, shut up, you little brat— She’s going to he married !” La.w—though framed for the protection of society, for the individual benefit of its mem bers—often admits of a construction adverse to the designs of its legislators ; and its ap plication, frequently defeats the object that it was intended to sustain. We have, howev er, numerous instances, wherein honest ju ries have given their verdict, conformably to the promptings of justice; and, happily, when such decisions have not been too wide ly different from* expressed rule, they have escaped from the appeal. We take pleasure in relating an incident, which greatly enlisted our sympathies, held us spell bound by its interest, and finally made our heart leap with joy, at its happy termination. In the spring of 181 —, we chanced to be spending a tow days in a beautiful inland country town [Harrisburg] in Pennsylvania. It was court week, and to relieve us from the somewhat monotonous incideni of village life, we stepped into the room where the court had convened. Among the-prisoners in the box, we saw a lad about ten years of age, whose sad and pensive countenance, his young and innocent appearance, caused him to look sadly out of place among the hardened criminals by whom he was surrounded. Close by the box, and manifesting the greatest interest in the pro ceedings, sat a tearful woman, whose anxious glance from the judge to the boy, left us no room to doubt that if was his mother.—We turned with sadness from the scene, to inquire of the offence of the prisoner, and learned he was accused of stealing money. The rase was soon commenced, and by the interest manifested by that large crowd, we » o ' found that our heart was not the only one in which sympathy for the lad existed. How we p’tied him ! The bright star of youth had vanished from his lace, and now it more ex pressed the cares of the aged. His young sis ter—a bright eyed girl—had gained admis sion to his side, and cheered him with the whisperings of hope. But that sweet voice, which before had caused his heart to bound with happiness, added only to the grief his shame had brought upon him. The progress of the case acquainted us with the circumstances of the loss, the extent of which was but a dime—no more ! The lad ! s employer, a wealthy, miserly and unprincipled manufacturer, had made use of it. for the purpose of what he called “testing the boy's honesty.” It was placed where from its very position the lad would oftencst see it, and least suspect the trap. A day passed, and the master to his mortification, not pleasure, found the coin untouched.— Another day passed, and yet his object was not gained. He was, however, determined that the boy should take it. and so let it re main. This continued temptation was too much for the lad’s resistehce. The dime was taken. A single present for that little sister was pur chased by it. But while returning home to gladden her heart, his own was made heavy by being arrested for theft! —the nature of which he little knew. These circumstances were substantiated by several of his employ er’s workmen, who were also parties to the plot. An attorney urged upon the jury the necessity of making this “little rogue” an example to others, by punishment. His ad dress had great effect upon all that heard it. Before I could see many tears of sympathy lor the lad, his widowed mother and faithful sister. But their eyes were all dry now, and none looked as it they cared for, or expected ought else but a conviction. The accuser sat in a conspicuous place, smiling, as in fiend-’iked exultation, over the misery be bad brought upon that poor, but once happy trio. We felt that there was but little hope for the boy ; and the youthful appearance of the attorney, who bad volunteered his defence, gave no cnCouragt mcht— as wc leofncd that The Reason Why. From Arthur’s Home Gazette. “Lead ns not Into Temptation.” GRASS VALLEY, CALIFORNIA, THURSDAY, MAY 11. 1854, it was the young man’s maiden plea —his first address. He appeared greatly confused and reached to a desk near him, from which he took the Bible, which had been used to sol emnize the testimony. This movement was received with general laughter, and taunting remarks—among which we heard a harsh fel low close by us, cry out—. “He forgets where he is. Thinking to take hold of some ponderous law book, he has made a mistake, and got the Bible.” The remark made the young attorney flush with anger, and turning his flashing eye upon the audi.ea<?^ n he> convinces* them it ro mistake, saying: “Justice wants no other book.” His confusion was gone, and instantly he was as calm as the sober Judge upon the bench. The Bible Avas opened, and every eye wflfi upon him as he quietly and leisurely turned over the leaves. Amidst a breathless silence, he read to the jury this sentence : “Lead us not into temptation .” A minute of unbroken silence followed, and again he read : “Lead us not into temptation .” "We felt our heart throb at the sound of those words. The audience looked at each other without speakmg—and the jurymen mutely exchanged glances*as the appropriate quotation carried its moral to their hearts. — Then followed an address, which, v for its pa thetic eloquence, we have never heard excel led. Its influence was like magic. We saw the guilty accuser leave the room in the fear of personal violence. The prisoner looked hopeful—the mother smiled again, and, be fore its conclusion, there was not, an eye in court that was not moist. The speech affect ing to that degree which causes tears —it held its hearers spell-bound. The little time that was necessary to trans pire before the verdict of the jury could be learned, was a period of great anxiety and suspense-' But when their whispering consul tation ceased, and these happy words, “Not Guilty,” came from the foreman, they passed like a thrill of electricity from lip to lip— the austere dignity of the court was forgot ten, and not a voice was there, that did not join the acclamations that hailed the lad’s re lease ! The lawyer’s first plea was a successful one. He'was soon a favorite, and now' rep resents his district in the councils of the na tion. The lad has never ceased his graceful remembrances —and we, by the affecting scene herein attempted to be described, have often been led to think ho\v manifold greater is the crimes of the tempter than that of the tempt ed. S . Employment.— God pity the man who has nothing to do. Idleness is mother of more misery and crime than all other causes ever thought or dreamed of by the profouudest thinker or the wildest theorist. The idea that, labor —manual labor—is de grading. is not only foolish, but wicked! Too proud to work ! Strange pride ; better do anything than nothing. Labor is the basis of wealth, of science, of art, of everything which gives comfort to the physical, and dig nity to the spiritual life of man. Too proud to work! The devil is always busy with those who are most idle. If they don’t work, he will. A mind uncultivated will run to waste, as sure as a neglected garden will be full of weeds and croples. The physical organiza tion requires action, work, or it will be effe minate and powerless. He who can lift up twenty pounds to day, by practice and a tem perate use of the physical organs, may by and by astonish the world with his Herculean performances. Look at the young man who has no steady employment of any kind. See the bad hab its that are by degrees growing upon him. Watch his progress in dissipation and his end in crime. And should he have courage and strength sufficient left, after years of indo lence, to break away from the degrading hab it, how ranch will he long to live over the wasted hours and years—so that he might better improve them. A Major of Militia in Pennsylvania, who had recently been elected, and who was not overburdened with brains, took it into his head on the morning of parade to go out and exercise a little by himself. The field select ed for the purpose was his own. Placing him self in a military attitude, with his sword drawn, be exclaimed—“ Attention the whole! Rear rank, three paces, march!" and he tum bled down the cellar. His wife, hearing the noise occasioned by the falling came mailing out. and asked— “My dear have you killed yourself!” “Go in the bouse, woman!” said the Ma jor; “what do you know about war J” Three gentlemen of Paris propose to estab lish a hotel on the American plan, huge in dimensions, and complete in all its accommo dations, with an eye to the Great Exhibition of 1855.

Bethought it was better not to produce the correspon dence, as hopes were entertained that there would be great improvements in the legisla tion of the States he had mentioned. The Marquis of Claricade failed to elicit from the Government its intentions with re spect to neutral flags in the coming war. His endeavors to gain precise information were attended with no better success than other enquiries on the same subject.

Paris, Sunday, March 19.— The news of the rejection by the Czar of the ultimatum of the Western powers, brought as it has been by telegraph dispatch from Vienna, has taken the public by surprise, as it was thought that the Czar would postpone giving his an swer till the expiration of the six days. The result was however expected, and so com pletely was the Paris public prepared for it, that the funds remained at the Petit Bourse to-day nearly at the closing prices of yester day. Paris, Tuesday eve, March 21st.—All se curities have again fallen to-day, in conse quence of the decline in the English funds.

No arrests have been made up it* this time. GLEANINGS. Jeems says, the quickest way to reach the “seat of war,” is to sit down on a hornet’s neat. Kissing a pretty girl “down south,” a young gentleman asked her “what made her so sweet?” “O,” she replied, in utter inno cence, “my IWier sugar^lanter.” Since the Washington monument has been commenced, it has been ascertained that it stands exactly in the centre of the District of Columbia. A country paper, descanting upon the mer its of a band of music, states that it is “par excellence.'' It costs half a million dollars a year to keep St. Peter’s Church, at Rome, in repair. A nephew of Robert Burns isa Free Church minister in New Zealand. “A reverend gentleman “down south,” says a northern paper, being invited to take a private drink, agreed to dispose of a lemon ade. By some mistake, he drank his friend’s whisky punch, who informed him that he had taken the wrong horn. The minister smiled affably, and remarked, “Ah, my young friend, the horn of the ungodly shall be put down.” Psalms Ixsv. 10. Impressions at First Sight. —This subject being brought up at the supper table, was getting “talked over,” when the lady who presided “o’er the cups and tea” said “she always formed an idea of a person at first sight; and that idea she found was generally a correct one.” “Mamma,” said her youngest son, in a shrill voice, th.it attracted the attention of all present. “Well, my dear,” said the fond mother, wbat do you want ?” “I want to know,” said Young America, “what you thought when you first saw me?” There was no answer to this query; but we learn a general titter prevailed, and that “Charlie” was taken into the kitchen imme diately by the servant. No sagacious man will long retain his sa gacity, if ho live exclusively among reform ers and progressive people, without periodi cally returning into the settled system of things to correct himself by new observations from the old stand point. — Hawthorne. Whatever may be the utility and conve nience of the penny receipt system, it is cer tain that its introduction opens a wide field for extortion, as the act strictly enjoins a tradesman never to settle an account without sticking it on. — Diogenes. “Six feet in his boots!” exclaimed Mrs. Partington. “What will the importance of this world come to, I wonder? Why, they might just as treasonably tell me that the man had six heads in his hat!” A man’s own conscience is his sole tribu nal, and he should care no more for that phan tom “opinion,” than he should fear meeting a ghost if he crossed the church-yard at dark. Three Things Modern Young Men Culti vate. —The acquaintance of a young lady with plenty of money—shirt collars as high as a garden wall—and a moustache. A Fertility well-grounded. —Periodicals are the dead leaves that fertilize the soil of Literature. The clergyman who dwelt upon a point, must have bad rather stiuted accommoda tions. The larger the school fund,' the less the prison allowance. NO. 34.
