CREEPINO DP TUK STAIK.
In the aoftly fulling twilight
Of the weary, weary day.
With a quiet step I entered
Where the children were at play;
I brooding o'er some trouble
That had met me unaware.
When a little reice came sluicing,
"M ia creepia up the ataira."
Ah t It touched the tender heart string
With a breath and force divine,
Aud auf h melodies awakened
Aa no words can e'er detine.
Then I turn to Bee our darling.
All forgetful of ray cares.
And I saw the little creature
Slowly creeping up the staira.
Step by step she bravely clambered
On her little hands and knees,
Keeping up a constant chattering, .
Like the magpies of the trees.
Till at last she reached the topmost,
When o'er her world's affairs
She delighted stood a victor.
After creeping up the stairs.
Fainting heart, behold aa image
Of man's brief and struggling life,
Whose best prize must be captured
With an earnest, noble strife!
Ownard. upward, reaching ever.
Bending to the weight of cares,
Hoping, fearing, still expecting,
We go creeping up the staira.
On the steps may be no carpet,
By their side may be no rail.
Hands and kneea may often pain us,
And the heart may almost fail ;
Still above there is the glory
Which no sinfulness Impairs,
With Its rest and joy forever.
After creeping up the stairs.
A BASHFUL MAN.
My father vu a farmer of no email
proverty, with no other learning than what
he had acquired at a charity school, but my
mother being dead, and I an only child h
determined to give me that advantage
which he fancied would have made hint
happy a learned education. I waa there
lore sent to a grammar school at 0 ,and
from thence to Cambridge, with a vie w of
qualifying me for holy orders. . Here, hav
ing but a small allowance from my father
and being naturally of a timid and bashful
disposition, I had no opportunity of rubbiDg
off that native awkwardness which was
destined to cause me so much misery.
In my person I am tall and thin, with a
fair complexion and light flx3n hair, but of
such extreme susceptibility to shame that on
the slightest subject of confusion, my blood
all rushes into my cheeks and 1 appear a
perfect "full blown rose."
The consciousness of this failing mad j me
avoid society, and I became enamored of a
College life. I had determined on living at
the University and taking pupils, when two
unexpected events greatly altered the p st
ure of my affairs, namely, my father's death
and the arrival of an uncle from the Eas-t
This uncle I had seldom heard my father
mention; and it was generally believed that
he was long since dead, when he arrived in
England only a week too late to close his
brother's eyes. I confess (what I believe ba
been often experienced by those who-ea edu
cation has teen better than that of their
parents) that my father's ignorance and vul
gar manners had often ' made me blush to
think I was his son; and at his death I was
net iicczi salable for the Iocs ofthat which 1
was not unfrequi n'ly ashamed to own. My
uncle, too, was tut little affected, for he had
been separated frjm his brother for more
than thirty years, and in that time he had
acquired a fortune of 30,000; and upon this
he built his hopes of never-ending happi
ness. But while he was planing schemes of
greatness and delight, whether the change
of the climate affected him, or what other
cause I know not, he was snatched from all
his dreams of joy by a short illness, of which
he died, leaving me heir to all his property.
Thus was It at the age of twenty-five, pos
sessed of an ample fortune, and well stocked
with Latin, Greek and mathematics. But
these advantages were more than counter
balanced by my awkward habits and by my
total ignorance of the u&ages of refined so
ciety. I now purchased a fine estate in a fashion
able district, and my company was much
courted by those of my neighbors who pos
sessed marriageable daughters.
From these gentlemen I received familiar
calls and the most pressing invitations, and,
though I wished to except their proffered
friendship, I repeatedly excused myself
under pretense of not being quite settled;
for the truth is that, when I have sallied out,
either on horseback or on foot, with full In
tention of returning their several visits, my
heart failed me as 1 approached their gates,
and I have frequently returned homeward,
resolved to try it again to-morrow.
However, I at length determined to con
quer my timidity, and accept an invitation
to dine on a certain day with one whose
open, easy manner le't me room to doubt a
cordial welcome. Sir Thomas Burton, who
resides about two miles distant, is a Baronet,

and living with their mother and a maiden
sister of bir Thomas', at Bur ion Hal), de
pendent on their father.
Conscious of my unpolished gait, I had
been for some time past taking private les
sons from a Professor who teaches ''grown
fentlemen to dance;" and, although I at
rst found wondrous difficulty in the art
he taught, my knowledge of mathematics
was of prodigious use in teaching me the
equilibrium of my body, and the due adjust
ment of the center of gravity to the five po
sitions. Having now acquired the art of walking
without tottering, and learned to make a
bow, I boldly ventured to accept the Baro
net's kind invitation to a family dinner, not
doubting that my new acquirements would
enable me to see the ladies with tolerable
As I approached the hous, the dinner
bell alarmed my fears lest I hud spoiled the
dinner by want of punctuality. Impressed
-with this idea, I blushed the deepest crim
son, as my name was repeatedly announced
by the servants who ushered me into the
library, scarcely knowing what or whom I
saw. At my entrance I summoned all my
fortitude, and made my new learned bow to
Lady Burton, but uofortunately bringing
back my left foot to the third position I trod
upon tha gouty toe of poor Sir Thomas, who
had followod closely to my heels to be the
nomenclator of the family. The confusion
this occasioned to me is hardly to be con
ceived, since none but bashful men can
judge of my distress; and of that descript
ion, the number, I believe, is very small, in.
The Baronet's politeness by degree sdissi-
pated my concern; and the cheerfulness of
her ladyship, joined to the familiar chat of
the young ladies and their brothers, insensi
blyledmeto throw off my reserve and
aheeDiihness. till at length I ventured to
join in the conversation and even to (tart
The library in which we were seated being
richly furnished with books in elegant bind

man dovoted to literature, and ventured to
give my opinion respecting the several edi
tions of the Greek classics, in which Sir
Thomas' ideas entirely coincided with my
own. - While talking on the subject my at
tention was directed te an edition of Xeno
phon, in sixteen volumes, which, as I had
never heard of such a thing, greatly excited
my curiouaity, and I rose up to see what it
The baronet saw that I was . about, and,
as I supposed willing to save me trouble,
rose to take down the volumes, which made
me more eager to prevent him, and hastily
laying my hand on the first volume, I pull

a board, which by the book-binder's art had
been made to look like sixteen volumes,
came tumblin down, and unlucky pitched
upoa an inkstand on the table under it. In

In walking through the hall and suite of
apartments to the dining-room, I had time
partially to collect my scattered senses, and
was desired to take my seat between Lady
Burton and her eldest daughter at the ta

phon, my lace had been continually burn

Having set my plate of soup too near the
edge of the table, in bowing to Miss Dinah,
who politely complimented me on the pat

wipe the surface of my clothes, my trousers

painful effects of thia sudden fomentation,

At last, when the pain began to abate,

my lower ex rem'ties parboiled, amid the
stifled giggling of the servants.
I will not inflict upon my reader a rela

hasten the eecond course, when fresh disast

I had a piece of rich, sweet pudding on
my for?c, when Miss Louise Burton begged
to trouble me for a pigeon that stood near
me. In my haste, I whipped the hot pud
ding into my mouth. It was impossible to
conceal my agony; my eyes were startling
from their sjckits. At last, in spite of
shame and resolution, I was compelled to
drop the cause of torment on my plate.
Sir Thomas, his sons and the ladies all
compassionated ray misfortune, and each ad
vised a different application.
One recommended oil, another water, but

From an Autotroph Letter to J. Tuey, Published
in the Ohio State Journal. 1
Philadelphia, June G, 1753.
Sir I received your kind letter of the 2d
inst, and am glad to hear you increase in
strength. I hope you will continue mend
ing till you recover your former health and
firmness. Let me know whether you still use
the cold bath and what effect it has.
As to the kindness you mention, I wish it
could have been of more service to you. But
if it had, the only thanks I should desire is
that you would always be equally ready to
serve any other person that may need your
assistance, and so let good offices go round,
for mankind are all of a family.
For ray own part, when I am employed
in serving others, I do not look upon myself
as conferring favors, but an paying debts.
In my travels and since my settlement, I
have received much kindness from men to
whom I shall never have an opportunity of
making the least direct return and num
berless mercies from God. who is infinitely
above being benefited by our services.
These kindnesses from men I can only re
turn as their fallow man. and I can only
show my gratitude for these mercies from
God by my readiness to help his other
children and. my brethren. For I do not
think that thanks and compliments, though
repeated weekly, can discharge our real ob
ligations to each other, much less those to

deserve such rewards. He, that for giving a
draught of water to a thirsty person should
expect to be paid with a good plantation,
would be modest in his demand compared
with those who think they deserve Heaven
by the good they do on earth. Even the
mixed, imtterfect pleasures we enjoy tre
rather from God's goodness than our merit.
How much more so then the happiness o"
Hetven. For my own part, I have not the
vanity to think I deserve it, the folly to ex
pect it, nor the ambition to desire it, but
content myself in submitting my future
destiny to the will and disposal of Him who
made, who has hitherto preserved me and
blessed me, and in -whose fatherly care a d
goodness I may well confide; that He will
never make me miserable, and that even the
afflictions I may at any time suffer shall
turn to my benefit.
The faith you mention has doubtless its
uses in the world. I do not desire to see it
diminished, nor would I endeavor to lessen it
in any man, but I wish it was more produc
tive of good works works of kindness,
charity, mercy, public spirit, not holiday
keeping, performing chu ch ceremonies, or
making long prayers, filled with flatteries
and compliments, despised even by wise
men, and much less capable of pleasing the
Piety. The worship of God is a duty. The
hearing and reading of sermons may be use
ful. But if a man rests in hearing or pray

value itself on being watered, and putting
forth leave', though it never produce any

than many of Iiis modern disciples. He
E referred the doers of the Word to the mere
earers the son that seemingly reused to
obey his father, and yet performed his com
mands, to him that professed his readiness
and yet neglected his work. The charitable

when those who cry Lord, Lord, who value
themselves on their faith, though great
enough to perform miracles, but have
neglected good works, shall be rejected.
He professed that He came not to call the
righteous, but sinners to repentance, which
implied His modest opinion that there were
some in His time so good that they needed
not fear even Him. Put in these days we
have scarce a little parson who does not
think it the duty of every man within his
reach to sit under his petty ministrations,
and whosoever omits them offends God. I
wish to such more humility, and to you, sir,
more health and happiness.

"Yes, 1 was with his command occasion

but very little as a scout or guide, but hunt
ed for him at various times. 1 was at the
Rosebud Agency at the time he was massa
cred." "He was a good Indian fighter, was he
"That depends on what you mean by a
good Indian fighter. He was a very brave
man, but a rashly brave man. I do not
think the Indian was ever born whom Cus
ter was afraid of. He arjpeared to take per
fect delight in exposing himself to danger,
and oftentimes when there was no use or
sense in his so doing, lie used to halt his
command at sight of Indians and himself
ride forward to reconnoiter. He would ride
up so near them that they would fire on
him, and then he would turn in his saddle,
swing his hat for the troops to come on, and
without waiting for them to come up with
him, put spurs to hi horse and dash down
upon the Indians with the bullets fairly
raining around him.
"Now, such fighting as that wins for an ol
ficer the name of being very brave, but I
call it fool hardiness. When he made such
a charge as that he knew absolutely nothing
of what danger menaced him. There might
be fifty Indians in ambush in front of him,
or there might be 500, and for aught he knew
he might be leading his command to certain
destruction. It is all very well for a man to
go out and make a target of himself for
Indians to shoot at, but it is sheer reckless
ness. Anybody who thinks the ludians are
not good marksmen are mistaken. They are
continually practicing, and they have the
best of arms, most of them having repeating
rifles. Custer seemed to think he bore i
charmed life. I have heard that he said tha;
the Indian didn't live who could hit him.
"Now, my idea of a brave man and gool
Indian lighter is one who first ascertains tie
strength of the enemy, and then, if he thinls
he can win, makes the attack with coolnes
and judgment. Then let him show hu
bravery by fighting like mad. In my opin
ion it is poor generalship for a command! nr
officer to needlessly put himself ina positioi
to be shot at the very outset of an engage
ment, and thus take a chance of leaving hit
command without its leader. If to be afraid
of nothing, is to be brave, Custer was ths
bravest of tle brave. Harney was the beg;

to mm tnat they were .Mormons, oil he went

Brigham Young twenty-four hours to sur

done, Latter-Day Saints would be mighty
scarce around there. Before we reached
Salt Lake a messenger overtook us with or
ders from the War Department for Harney
to return to camp, that the civil authorities
would attend to the massacre business.

back to Yuma a young girl, about seventeen
or eighteen years old, came out to the camp
and applied to Brady, the Trainmaster, to
help her escape. Her parents were English,
who had joined the Mormons not long be
fore, and one of the Aiders wanted to marry
her. Her parents were trying to force her
to this polygamous marriage, and she could
only avoid it by running away. She had an
uncle and aunt in San r rancisco, and to
them she wanted to go.

wrong with the train, and back came a mes
senger to fee what was the matter.
As soon as Harney was informed of what
had occurred he ordered the train to halt
and stay there until he got back, and away
he and all the troops went for the Mormons.

reached the city first. Do you suppose Har

went at a gallop, and when he jumted from

guard on duty there with a musket and

to a charge, Harney gave it a kick: that
turned the guard half round, and the next
instant he was disarmed. Harney strode
into the office with a half dozen soldiers at

Brigham to tell them to go back to the city

And That The Best,
Dear Sirs: We have used and sold
your work for the past three years and
have found it first-class. Our custom
ers are all well pleased. "We have sold
to several livery stables, and your bug
gies have stood the severe usage to
which they are subjected equal to the
highest priced buggies. Yours truly,
Dunn & Wilson.
Gentlemen: I have bought of you
several of your side-bar buggies. They
are the best vehicles for the money, I
ever saw. I have subjected them to
the severest tests in my livery, and
they wear tetter than auy other work
I have ever had. Yours truly,
F. D. Park.
Dear Sirs: From au experience of
fifteen years in the livery business we
are fully convinced that the durability,
style, and finish of the carriages and
buggies of your manufacture far excels
any others in the United States for the
money. Bray & Henn.

Gentlemen: We have leen using
your Brewster work for two years, du
ring which time we have been convin
ced they are the best buggies on the
road, and for neatness, durability and
general appearance, they cannot be
surpasred. Yours truly,
II. Weeks & Kimble,
Gentlemen: Have lx?en selling your
buggies and pha;tons the last two years
and as yet there is the first complaint
to be made. I think them the best
buggies for the money in the market.
They give good satisfaction to l)oth
dealer and customer. Yours,
R. A. McCormick.
Gentlemen I have been using and
selling your manufacture of buggies for
two years past with great satisfaction
to . both my customers and myself.
Those to whom I sold, without excep
tion, speak in the most exalted terms of
your work. I could furnish you testi
monials from each party to whom I
have sold your work. For myself, I
think they are the best buggies manu
factured for the trade. Wherever I go,
I find those who have a knowledge of
your buggies all speak of them in the
most flattering terms.
Yours respectfully. '
John W. Chrisman.
Gentlemen: You made two 3-quar-ter
seated open buggies for us last sum
mer. We are very much pleased with
them. They are the best value for their
ost we have ever seen.
