PRACTICE WHAT YOU
Advice is cheap, the market's full,
O'er ready some to teach,
While o'er the eyes the wool they pull,
Nor practice what they preach.
The monstrous "beam" is never seen.
The "mote" provokes their screech,
The while seductive vice they screen,
Nor practice what they preach.
Sweet charity take by the hand,
Fair justice's height to reach,
Where others slip, you firmly stand,
And practice what you preach.
Precept is good, example's best,
Be chary then of speech,
So live that very life attest
You practice what you preach.

BY JUDGE CLARK.
'Mr. Meade would like to see
ou at once, if you can come, sir,'
as the message delivered to Or.
n Carson, a yot.ng lawyer, but
ae leading one, in the flourishing
ttle country .town which had
een christened Dellvale by some
ody not having the fear of tan
Alogy before his eyes.
Mr. Meade, let us explain, was
n invalid who bad come, it may
ave been a year before, accompa
ied by his daughter Elspeth, to
aek from the salubrious air of
ellvale that health for which he
ad elsewhere sought in vain
rd that was about all anybody
new of him save that the style
1 which he lived betokened
Elspeth Meade was a beauty ;
nd had she been of manners less
atiring, or at all disposed to use
er power, she would, no doubt,
ave made enemies of the whole
evy of Delivale belles, for she
auld easily have had all their
veetheart.s at her fe3et.
Mr. Carson followed Mr. Meade's
essenger, and was immediately
shered into the sick man's cham-.
er, where he found the physician
i attendance looking deeply con
erned, for his patient's symptoms
ad suddenly become alarming.
'I wish to speak with Mr. Oar
>n alone,' said Mr. Meade, with a
>ok at the doctor, who took the
it and withdrew.
Mr. Carson took the chair to
rhich he was invited near the
ed, and awaited whatever comn
inication was coming.
'I feel that the struggle is near
7 over,' Mr. Meade began, speak
ig feebly. 'The old enemy is
bout to triumph, as he always
oes in the end.'
~~e speech with which the
uug lawyer would have cheered
Le invalid's spirits was cut short
-not rudely, but with a pensive
mile which evinced how comn
letely all hope had been aban
'I appreciate the kindness of
our motives,' said Mr. Meade, 'but
othing can alter my conviction~
bat the end is nea.r, and that
omething I desire to say to you,
,nder the seal of professional con
dence, must be spoken now or
'Speak freely,' returned the oth
r ; 'what ever you may say shall
~e held sacred.'
There was a pause, during
vhich a momentary flush over
pread the wan and wasted fea
ures of the fast sinking man.
,was the elder of two sons,' he
'esumed, at lengthb, 'my younger
rther, George, being the fruit o;
ny father's second marriage. H

Lnd he survived her but a brie:

'After my father's death I be

my mother, and of which it was
not in my father's power to de

'On a homeward bound voyage,
chance found me in the same ship
with my brother's child and his
nurse. I discovered their identity
by accident. The child, I learned
had been chriMtened Allyn, after
his mother's maiden name. My
relationship to him I was careful
not to disclose, either to the nurse
or any of the passengers.
'My small fortune was nearly
exhausted, and it may have been
that that put it into my head
anyhow the thought came, that
but for that child I would now be
the possessor of the wealth of
which I had been supplanted.
This 'thought was followed by
another, that if my infant nephew
died, as his next of kin of the
blood from which the estate came,
I would be his heir.
:One night, when all the passen
gers were abed, the ship struck
upon a rock either not laid down
in the charts, or one for which a
sufficient watch had not been
'The vessel held her course, and,
at first, it was thought she had
suffered no material damage. But
soon the dread -alarm was given
that the ship was sinking.
:No time was to be lost. The
passengers and crew, with what.
ever provisions were at hand,
were hustled into the long-boat,
which was pushed clear of the
'I protest and declare that it
was not till we had lost sight of
the ship, that I discovered that
the nurse and the child were not
amongst us! Had I noted the fact
in time to turn back to their res
cue, I trust-I believe-I should
have called attention to it. As it
was, to search for the ship in the
darkness, if she had not already
gone down, seemed hopeless, and
1 held my peace. Then quickly
came the thought-I could not
help it --'the fortune now is mine !'
But when, at length, another
uttered the cry, 'The woman and
the child!I' and amid wild excla
mations from those bound to the
lost by no ties of blood, the boat
was put about, and hours spent in
anxious though fruitless search,
I felt that my previous apathy
and silence had branded me as a
'I had no difficulty in establish
ing my claim to the fortune I had
coveted so long. On the death of
my brother and his child, the law
made it clearly mine. But though
none suspected that I knew my
relationship to the poor babe, the
night it was forgptten on the
wreck, my conscience was far
from quiet. Oh ! why had I left
it to the mouths of strangers first
to raise the startling cry, 'The
woman and the child !'
'I removed to a distant part of
the country and married. In a
newspaper, one day, I saw an ad
vertisement which seemed to have
been many times repeated, in
quiring for the relatives of a male
infant, picked up at sea in a ship's
jolly boat about the time of the
wreck whbich I have just descri bed.
The child's clothing was marked
with the initials 'A. MN.,' and about
its neck was suspended a gold
locket containing a lady's likeness
of which full description was giv
'A. M. ?'-Allyn Meade was the
name of my brothers son ! The
description of the miniature tallied
exactly with the features of my
brother's wife, whom I had known
before her marriage. The truth
flased upon me. I was not the
lawful possessor of the fortune in
my har.is. The faithful nurse,

'The name of the gnetleman ?
asked the lawyer eagerly.
With a trembling hand the man
drew a locket from his bosom and
touched the spring displaying the
likeness of a beautiful woman be.

'It is her face!-my brother's
wife 1' cried the latter in a terror
'And Orrin Carson was the gen
erous benefactor who gave me his
name and brought me up to his
profession!' exclaimed the other,
not less excited. 'I was picked
up at sea just as you have de
scribed, and that locket was found

'Thank God!' was the devout
response. 'I could not die peace
fully with the crime upon my
conscience of keeping another out
of his right. It was to ask your
aid in discovering my nephew,
and restoring to him his own,
that I sent for you to come.'
Then with a sigh ;'Poor Elspeth !'
he added, 'I have loved her sinee
the first day I saw her,' said
Allyn, 'and have reason to believe
my affection is returned. But
give your sanction to our union,
and let her remain in ignorance

Elspeth was summoned and
her band placed by her dying
father in that of the man whom
her heart had chosen.
A BOY'S FORTUNE.
Hal, a boy of twelve, after a
season of discontent, concluded
that he was not going to stay at
home, and work "for nothing."
So he told his little sister that
some dark night, when the wind
blew a gale, the thunder roared
and the lightning flashed, he was
going to "light out," to seek his
fortune, and was not coming back
either until he brought oceans of
mony ; then he would be con
sidered of some account, and not
told to do this, that and the other
for nothing. The little girl be
came so nervous and unhappy,
whenever a storm was brewing,
the mother noticed it, and ques
tioned her for the cause, and so
found out the true story. Thbere
was a family, consultation, and
Hal was told by his father that, if
e was not satisfied with his home,
e need not wait for an inclement
night but could go in broad day
light, right out of the front door'
with his clothes in a new valise
instead of tying them up in a bun
de; some money in his pocket, ac
companied by the best wishes of
his friends, and, if not successful
in his endeavors to earn "oceans
of wealth," could return and be
warmly welcomed home. Hal
ung his head, but said he had
better be earning something. Fa
ther said, "Yes, it's manly to wish
to work." And that he knew of
a man in the neighborhood who
was then hunting some one to do
a man's work for boy's wages.
When told who the man was Hal
looked disconcerted, hut said he
supposed he need not be too par
ticular, as it was wages and not
the man he was after. "All right,
I'll try it," was the decision ; so
Hal was off with the birds next
morning-and this was his expe
When Hal arrived at Mr. Van
Nest's he was received with these
words: "So you are on hand ;
your father spoke to me about
you yesterday, and engaged a
day's work for you. It's a bar
gain, is it 1".
Hal said ; "Yes, sir," but was
too much abashed to say a word
Iabout the wages.
"Had your breakfast ?"
And when Hal shook his head,
said, "That's bad, but come in, I
s'pose you'll have to eat some
So Hal went into the small un

Correspondent of the News and Courier
WASHINGTON, D. C., Feb. 18.-It
is with no purpose of asking you to
become a free advertising medium,
but simply pro bono publico, that I
respectfully ask you to publish the
following. Members of Congress are
in daily receipt of letters asking about
the Census arrangements, and al
though I have not read the law since
last spring, I know the following ideas
are therein contained, and if you will
publish them, and other papers
throughout the State will "follow
suit." you will deserve the thanks of
the "M. C.'s." and confer a favor up
on the public
The State of South Carolina is -di
vided into three-census districts. In
the first are the Counties of Abbeville,
Anderson, Chester, Edgefield, Green
ville, Fairfield, Laurens, Newberry,.
Oconee, Pickens, Spartanburg, Union
In the second are Aiken, Barnwell,
Beaufort, Charleston, Colleton, Hamp
ton, Lexington, Orangeburg and Rieh
In the th' . are Chesterfield, Claren
don, Darlington, Georgetown, Horry,
Kershaw, Lancaster, Marion, -Marl
boro', Sumter and Williamsburg.
For each of these districts the Pres
ident appoints a supervisor. The Con.
gressional delegation selected Mr. J. K.
Vance of Greenville, Mr. Harry Ham
mond of Barnwell, and Judge Town
send of -Marlboro', and submitted their
names to the President as suitable
persons for supervisors. He returned
the names of Mr. C. H. Pride' of
Chester, a Mr. Breeden -of Darlington,
and Mr. Hammond to the Senate, and
subsequently withdrew the name. o
Mr. Hammond, and to this writing has
not, that I am aware, sent-in a sub
stitute. The result is that up to date
the Senate has 'confirmed no super.
visor for South Carolina. When once
confirmed (and their confirmation 'will
be know in- Charleston as soon as it
will be here) .each will be imine
diately put to work upon a stated sali'
ary of five hundred dollars ($500.)
One of their first duties. will be to
divide up their respective districts- in
to areas containing not'-more than
4,000 inhabitants each. Each super
visor will -'then select an enumerator
for each such sub-divison of his dis
trict, and submit the names of the ap
pointees for the approval of the gen
eral superintendent of census at Wash
ington. As soon as approved each
enumerator will be advised and sup
plied alwth suitable blanks and in
structions as to his duties. On the
1st day of June next he is to begin
work, and will be required to wind up
the job by the 30:h of tbe same
The pay of each enumerator is two
cents for each inhabitant and some
thing for each farm, but his salary
cannot exceed one hundred and
twenty-five dollars ($125) for the
So far as "taking the census" con
erns any of the thousand and one
letter writers, who are inquiring about
the duties &c., with a view to secure
an appointment, the above are all~the
points that are necessary for the in
formation of the public.
Apart from these, however, the
superintendent of census has already
placed in the field, (whether by the
approval of the President, or the con
firmation of the Senate, I am unable
to say) what he calls "expert agents"
to report upon such subjects as the
following: Fisheries ; mining indus
tries; power and machinery used in
manufactures; defective, delinquent
and dependent classes ; social statistics
of cities ; statistics of special branches
of agriculture, and mortuary statistics.
To collect the agricultural statistics
Prof. Hilgard of the University of

was once a professor in Oxford, Miss.,
and is a first-class man ; but why the
government should have crossed the
Rocky Mountains to hunt up a man to
give us special information upon a
subject about which he must be com
paratively ignorant, is an enigma to
me. No art or science has been more
variedly developed than the culture of
eotton since Prof. Hilgard went toi
California, and there are scores of men i
in the cotton belt who could give the
particular information asked for in
half the time and at less cost than

tidy kitchen, sat down at a table
against the wall to a breakfast
very different, and served up
very differently, from the morn
ing meal at home. Hal's appetite,
which the brisk morning walk had
sharpened, had suddenly abated
with Mr.Van Nest's salutation,and
wholly departed at his wife's cold
look at the "new boy." The first
order was to bitch the horb.. to
the plough, then an old tin bucket
was banded Hal and they started
for the field. Mr. Van Nest said,
"Stick to your business to-day,
boy ; look sharp, for 1 want you
to pick up angle worms, as I turn
the furrow, and fill that gallon
bucket, if you're smart and know
what's good for yourself.
"Are you going fishing ?" Hal
asked with sudden interest."
"Never you mind where I'm
going-only follow me and stick
Hal did not mind stooping over
so many times in a minute, at
first, though the birds sang their
love songs in the trees around
him, and the breezes whispered
in his ear, as they fanned his
cheek, to "Come, come o'er the
hills and &way, fishing." He re
sisted the impulse to fly, and did
stick to business most assiduously.
After a while he ventured to ask
"What are you going to do with
all these worms, sell them to the
And he was told again : "Never
you mind what I'm going to do
with them; you just stick to your

went to dinner, poor Hal had be.
came so disgusted with his work,
that eating was a farce. Before
starting for the field again, he
made a protest, but was, "See
here, boy, you and I made a bar.
gain for a day's work, you do
what I tell you, or I'll make you.1
Hal was subdued, and marched
off, and went to work. He was
dizzy, faint, tired, hungry, sick,
but he. dragged hi-mnself after that
e.erlasting plough. And so the
long afternoon wore away, for all
things have an ending, and so did
this wretched -day. They went
to the barrn, unhit~ebed, and the
man took up the bucket, shook
his head, said "not half enough,'
and putting a penny in Hal's ex
tended hand, said "Now, clicket
for home, youngster, before dark.'
Hal threw the money at thbe
man's head, and started on a run.
How he got over the ground, he
said he never knew, but he burst
in upon his astonished family
looking delapidated enough and
very considerably demoralized.
He sobbingly told the story of his
wrongs, and as he sat in the large
rocking-chair, looking into the
glowing embers of a Spring fire,
wich burned low upon the hearth,
he soliloquized thus :
"I don't belheve as long as I
live, I shall ever care a cent for
angle worms again, and you'll
never catch me complainin gagain,
