CCTT2TSH3? OF THE EILBa ADAMS.
Some ten years since, 1 f pent a colle
giate vacation in the town ol Weymouth,
Norfolk comity Mass. While there 1 at
tended church on Sunday morning, at
which was called the 0!d Weymouth
kneeling house, and heard a sermon from
the venerable pastor, Rev. Jacob Norton.
About the same time, I made Mr. Norton
a visit, and became much interested in
-the old genilenian. I mentioned my a
greeable visit to an old lady of the parish,
Vhose acquaintance I had made. She in
formed me that Mr. Norton was ordained
their pastor when lie was about twenty
one yearn of age, and that he had been
with them nearly forty year?. She ob
served that most of his present parshion
ers could remember no other pastor; but
that she could well remember his prede
cessor, the Rev. Mr, Smith, and that he
and Mr. Norton had filled the same pul
pit for the better pait of the last eighty
years.
' Mr Smith,' said she, was an excel
lent man. and a very fine pTeacher, but
he had high notions of himself and fami
ly in other words, he was something of
an aristocrat."
One day, she told the following anec
dote of old parson Smith, and several oth
er persons of distinction ;
Mr. Smith h;id two charming daugh
ters. Mary was the name of the o'dest,
the other' name I have forgotten. They
were admired by the beaux, and envied
by the belles of the country arottud.
survive or perish, I give my heart and
hand to thia measure. But though the
measures were different, the spirit was
the same. Besides, he had already car
ried the main point of attack the heart
of the young lady and he knew the sur
render of the citidel must soon follow.
After the unusual hesitation ond delay
that attended such an unpleasant affair.
Mr. Smith, seeing that resisiance was
fruitless, yielded the contested point with
as much grace as possible, as many a piu
dent father has done before and since that
time. Mr. Adams was united to the lov
ely Miss S. After tho marriage was o
ver, and all things were settled in quiet,
Mrs. Adams remarked to her father;
You preached sister Mary one on the
occasion of her marriage. Wou't you
preach me one likewise V
'Yes, my dear girl !' said Mr. Smith,
'choose your text, and you shall have
your sermon.'
Well said the daughter, 'I have cho
sen the thirty-third verse of the seven
teenth chapter of Luke 'For John came
neither eating bread nor drinking winei
and ye say he hath a devil.'
The old lady, my informant, looked
me very archly in the face, when she re
peated this passage, and observed :
If Mary was the most dutiful daugh
ter, I guess the other had the most wit.'
I could not ascertain whether the last
sermon was ever preached.
It may not be inappropriate to remark
how well these young ladies justified the
preference of the distinguished individu
als who had sought them in maraiage.
Of them it will hardly be extravagant to
say they were respectively an honor to
But while the careful guardians of the par
ton's family were holding consultation on
the subject, it was rumored that two young

England, is acquainted with whatever oc

man of promise, and altogether worthy

young man with great respectability.

THE GRAVE OF LITTLE JULIUS.
BY REV. Jell LEHMAN.
After a Ion? series of severe trials and
distresses, I set out with my three small
children, a son and two daughters, to jour
ney I knew not whither. 'When we had
traveled a considerable distance, the son
fell sick, and we were obliged to stop.
This disease soon became alarming and
proved fatal, notwithstanding our effort
and desire that he might live. He died,
and in much, grief of mind I sat down
weeping and bemoaning him, and said,
0 that it were not so ! How heavily
ed mantle and would leave him no longer.
While thus engaged in reflections, I
looked round upon the cedars that euclose
this ancient burial-ground on every side,
and said, Ye watchmen of this sacred
place, ye are witnesses of this meditata-
tive hour ! And thou, my son, though
no other kindred should come to shed a
tear here, and few know that thou hast
been, and though the hand that is divine
may remove me, thy father, far away
again, yet think.not but that I will seek
another opportunity to return, and yet
another, and cover thee with flowers, till
at last I faithfully j hope, through Jesus
who is 'the resurrection and the life,' to
come to thee in that far-off land of hap
piness, where, clasping thee by thy hand,
clothed in pure white robes, we shall
quickly enter into sweet conversation
concerning your redeeming Lord, as we
walk along the river of life, and over the
hills of fiankincense, and on the mountains
of myrrh ; and where our love to each
other, to Christ our Head, and to all the
hosts of heaven, will continually increase
with our onward and npward march amid
scenes ever widening and brightening in a
boundless eternity.
By this time the light of the rising sun
had chased the shadows from .the sepul
chres, so I reached up my hand and cut
off a small twig from the nea'rest cedar
whose branches extended over my little
one's tomb, and came away sad, yet glad
for what I saw and felt.

One morning, having driven the now from

said to him, 'Friend T , I have driv

was not asked to partake of the hospital
ities of the table, and it -is reported that,
his horse was doomed to share with his
master the neglect and mortification to
which he was subject, for he was fre
quently secyshivering in the cold, and
gnawing the post at the pastor's door, o?
long winter evenings. In short, it was
reported that the parson had intimated to
him t'lat his visits were unacceptable am!
that he would confer a favor by discon
tinuing them. lie told his daughter that
Jo'm Adams was unworthy of her that j
his father was an honest man and trades
man, who had tried to initiate John in tho
art of husbandry and shocmaking. but
without success ; and that he sent him to
college as a last resort. He begged his
daughter not to think of making an alli
a ice with one so much beneath her.
Miss Smith was among the most duti
ful of?daugh:ers, but she saw Mr. Adams
through a medium very different from
that in which' her father viewed him.
She would not fur the world offend or
disobey her father, but John saw some
thing in her eye and manner, which seem
ed to say, 'persevere 1' and on that hint
he acted.
Mr. Smith, like a good parson and af
fctinnain father, had told his daughters,
that if they married with his approbation,
he would preach each of them a sermon
on the Sabbath after the joyful occasion ;
and they should have the privilege of
choosing the text.
The espousal of lhe oldest daughlei,
Mary, anived, and she was united to Mr.
Crunch in the holy bonds, with the ap
proval, the blessings, and tho benedic
tions of parents and htr friends. Mr.
Smith then said, 'My dutiful child, I am
now ready to prepare your sermon for
next. Sunday. What do you select for

' 'My dear father,' said Mary, 'I have
selected the latter part of the forty-second
verse "of the tcnt'li chapter of LuRe
'Mary hath chosen the good part, which
,Bhall never be taken from her.'
Very good, my daughter,' said he, and
so a sermon was preached.

I Assisted bv a few friends, wo buried
him among strangers in a strange land,
and continued to journey, in different di
rections, till we reached the westerrr
banks of the fa '.her of rivers in the great
West; havinn completed a tour
thousand mile?, and partly through a for
eign country. There, in one of its delias,
while engaged in my Master's service, 1
was aoiin subjected to sore afllictions,
through the pernicious influence of that
unclean Spirit, whose blasphemies and in
iquitous works are known to many.
These things made me long to see once
more the land and the spot where we
laid the mortal remains of my lovely lit
tle boy. God, whose mercies are very
great, gave me abillily to return : and
having arrived at the village near where
he lies, late in the evening and much fati
gued, I soon lay down and slept, but rose
early the next morning and went out to
lhe cemetry of the dead. Here, pensive
and alone, I passed to his grave. One
year had now just elapsed since I stood
here before, under the most melancholy
circumstances. The grass was spreading
thinly over his mound, and a small white
stone marked the place of his head, with
this inscription. The Grave of Little
Julius, the work of an unknown person.
My soul was deeply moved, and kneeling
down by his side, I exclaimed, 0 Julius,
my son, my son Julius, would that I
were with thee this day ! Oj had I the
wings of a seraph, quickly would I fly
away to thy blissful home !
I arose and stood by, and walked softly
around his lonth, weeping and wiping the
tears Irom my eyes, and calling to mind
many interesting facts connected with his
brief and innocent life. I thought of the
many dangers he escaped, and the danger
of being destroyed before he was born.
I thought of his strong attachment to me,
and to his sisters, Flora and Cornelia, and
his benevolence to all; and how he strove
to lease us by his graceful ways, sweet
words, and all his little store of sense. I
thought of his reverence for God, his
house and Sabbaths ; his attention, inqui
ries and grave remark, when, taking dim
by the hand I wou d point to the heavens
and speak of the works of God. I thought
of the gladness with which he could ac
com;nny me in my labors of jove, the
f r;i tide he displayed in his last sickness,
the thrilling words he spoke, and the love
and fidelity with which he clung to me
