A BEAUTIFUL STORY. I wa9 standing in the broad, crowded streets of a large city. Il was a cpld winter's day. There had been nin ; Bnd although the sun had been shining bright ly, jet the long icicles hung from the caves'of the house, and the wheels rum bled loudly ns they passed over the ground. There was a clear, bright look, and a cold bracing feeling in the air, and a keen, north-west wind, which quickened every step. Just then a liitlo child came run ning along a poor ill clad child; her clothes were scant and thread bare ; she had no cloak and no shawl, and her lit tin bare feet looked red and suffering. She ennied a bundle in her hand. Poor little shivering child. Even I, who could tlo nothing else, pitied her. As she pas sed nie her foot slipped, and she fell with a cry of pain ; but she held the bundle tightly in her hand, and jumping up, al though she limped sadly, endeavored to run on as before. 'Stop, little girl,' said a sweet voice ; and a beautiful woman, wrapped in a huge rhawl and with firs around her, came out of a jeweler's store, close by. 'Poor lit tle child,' she said, are you hurt? Sit down on this step and tell me.' How I loved Iter, and how beautiful she looked ! 'Oh, I cannot,' said the child, 'I can not wait I am in such a hurry. 1 have been to the shoemaker's, and mother must finish them to-night, or she will never get any more shoes to bind.' To-night?' said the beautiful woman, 'to-night .'' Yes,' said the child for the strangers kind manner had made her bold 'yes; fur the great ball to-night, and these satin slippers must be spangled ; and ' The beautiful woman took the bundle, from the child's hand and unrolled it. You do not know why her face flushed and then turned ale, bull, yes I, looked in the bundle, and on the inside of a slip per I saw a name a lady's name written, but I shall not tell it. 'And where docs your mother live, lit tle girl?' So the little girl told her where, and then she told her that her father was dead; and that her little brother was sick, and that her mother bound shoes that they might have bread; but that sometimes they were very cold, and thai her mother sometimes cried because she had no mon ey to buy milk for her little brother. And theu I saw that the lady's eyes were full of tears ; and she rolled up the bun dle quickly and gave it back to the little girl ; but she gave her nothing else no, not even a sixpence, and, turning away, went back into the store from which she had just come out. As she went away, I saw the glitter of a diamonJpin. Pres- j cntly she came back, an 1 stepping into a handsome carriage rolled off. The little girl looked after her a moment, and then with her little bare feet, colder than they were before, ran quickly away. I went with the little ijirl, and I saw j her go ton narrow dam;; s'.ieet, into a small daik room ; I saw lirr mother her j sad, faded mother, but vh!i a face so pa- j tient hushing and soothing a sick b by j And the baby slept and the nii.thcr laid! it on her lap; and the bundles were tin - rolled, and a dim candle helped her with her work: for though it was not night, et her room was very dark. Then, af-i ter a while, site kissed the link' girl, and had her wai in hot poor frozen feet over the scanty fire in the grate, and gave her a little piece of bread, for she had no more; and then she heard her say her! evening prayer, and folding her tenderly 1 to her bosom, blessed her, and told heri that the ange's would take care of her. And the liale cii'ld slept and dreamed Oh! such pleasant dreams of warm Hockings and new shoes, but the mother J sewed alone, and as the bright spangles glittered on the satin slippers, came there no repining into the heart? When she thought oj'hcr child's bare, cold feet, nnd of the scant morsel of bread which had not satisfied her hunger, came there no visions of a bright room and gorgeous clothing, aud a table loaded with all that was good and nice, a little portion of which spaied to her would send warmth and comfort to her humble dwelling ? If such thoughts came, and others of a pleasant cottage, and of one who had dear ly loved her, aud whose strong arm had kept want and trouble from her and her babes, but who could never come back if these thoughts did not come rcpiningly, there also came another ; and the widow's hands were clasped and her head bowed low, in deep contrition as 1 heard her say, ''Father, forgive me, for thou iloest all things well, and I will trust to thee." Jiut then the door opeued softly, and someone entered. Was it an angel ? Her hands were of spotless white, and she moved with a noiseless step. She went to the bed wheit the sleeping child lay, and covered it with warm blankets. -Then presently afire sparkled and blazed here, such as the little grate had never known before. Then a huge loaf was placed upon the (able, nnd fresh milk for the sick babe. Then she passed gently before the molhei, and (hawing the unfin ished slipper from her hand, placed there a purse of gold, and said in a voice like music: "Bless thy God, who is the God of the fatherless and the widow"-and she was gone, only as she went out I heard her say, ''better than diamonds better than diamonds." What could she mean ? I looked at the mother. With clasped hands and streaming eyes, she blessed her God, who had sent an angel to. comfort her. So I went too ; and I went to a bright room, where there was music and dancing, and sweet floweis; and I saw yonng happy faces, and beautifully dres sed, andparkling jewels; but none that I knew, until one passed me whose dress was of simple white with only a rose-bud on her bosom, and whose voice was like the sweet sound of a silver flute. No spangled slipper was on her foot; but she moved as one that treadeth upon the air, and the divine beauty of holiness had so glorified her face, that I felt as I gazed upon her that she was indeed an angel of God. The Seller Sold. An incident recently occurred in a town on the Connecticut River, which illustrates the danger of practical joking, and served, at the time, its purpose of fun and raillery. A certain barber, happening in at a store, a clerk, who wished to play the barber a trick, offered him a bottle of bear's oil. The latter did not want it, but being over urged, took it and paid for it. On his opening it, in his shop, the oil was found to be lamp oil, with a very rank smell. Nothing was said of, the shave which the clerk had practised, and the barber shaved along as usual, until the matter had time to be forgotten. A few evenings since, the clerk went into the barber's shop, to be shaved pre paratory to a ball, After the harvest of the thick, bearded chin was reaped, the clerk straightened himself up, and cxelaim-ed- Now slap on the oil.' A good handful wss poured out, 'slap ped on and rubbed in. A second follow ed, but, before it could be rubbed in, the clerk 'smelt stilliin'," and leaped from the chair as if he had been shot, at the same lime giving utterance to sundry ex pletives, coming under the cognizance of the statue against profane swea'.injr. The barber assured the enraged custo mer that he had put bear's oil on his head, and from the very bottle he had sold him. If it was poor oil it was the clerk's fault. There was no resisting this, and the mailer was settled by refunding the mon ey paid for the oil, and a champooning at the clerk's expense. The clerk went to the ball, but the rank lamp oil stuck to his hair, and the snuffs of them who came near him, showed that the barber was wicked when he champooned him. Moiial. Honesty is the best policy, and lamp oil is by no means the best thing to make the course of pleasure "run smooth." Badly Cornt.d. A traveler fatigued with the monotony of a long ride through a sparsely settled section of the country rode up to a small lad who was engaged in trimming and dressing out a sickly looking field of corn and relieved the op- pression of his spirits, thus 'My young friend it seems to me your corn is rather small.' 'Yes daddy planted the small kind.' Ah but it appears to look rather yellow loo. 1 Ye?, fir, Daddy plained the yellow kind.' 'From appearances, my lad, you won't get more than half a crop.' Jusi half stranger-daddy planted il on halves. The horseman proceeded on his way, and had not been known to speak to a boy since. He considerd them bores. A Good Excuse. Sheridan being on a visit at a friend's in the country, an el derly maiden set her heart or) being his companion in a walk, lie excused him self at first on account of bad weather. Soon afterward however, the lady surpris ed him in' an attempt to escape without her. Well,' said sho, it has cleared up, I see.' 'Why, ye,s,' he answered, 'it has cleared up enough for one but not for two. A Bbautiful Thought. When I gaze into the stars, they look down upon me with pity from their serene and silent spaces, like eyes glistening with tears over the little lot of man. Thousands of generations, all as noisy as our own, have been swallowed by time, and there re mains no record of them any more; yet A returns, Orion, Sirius and the Pleiades, are still shining in ihcir courses, clear and young ns when the Shepherd first no ted them from the plain of Shinar ! "What shadows wc arc, and what shad ows we pursue." A friend of Ouvier's once took the horns and hoofs riff of an ox, and approached the bedside of the great naturalist, and awakening him from a sound sleep, an nounce d himself as the devil, who had come to eat him up. Cuvier rubbed his eyes, and glauced at the nondescript from horns to hoof, when he lay down, and quietly remarked; Horns, hoofs gram- niverous eat grass can't come it, go way.' C7A young buck of the soap lock order, who wore an unshaved face, be cause as he said, it 'looked foreign,' late ly accosted a Yankee as follows ; ! say, fellow, some individuals think I am a Frenchman, and some take me for an Etalyean, now what do you think I am?' ''think you are a darrCd fool,' replied Jonathan. ' C'Mothei, said Mrs. Partington's Ike, 'here's a word in this ere paper I can't make out.' 'Spell it child.' , S-a-g N-i-c-h-t-s., 'Saee Nits, sonny, what docs it say about 'em !' It saya-thcy started in old Kentucky, and are spreading all over.' Dear on us,' said .the old lady, "the world must be coinin' to an end '.-Chintz bugs, and cut worms and locusts was bad enough, but here comes the filthy things, the sagnits. No sassengers for this year, Isaac," and Mrs. Partington sighed. An Irishman and a Frenchman were to be hanged together- Monsieur v as considerably troubled about it, while Paddy took the matter quite coolly, ling his companion to 'be aisy, tor sine il is nothing to be- hanged at all, at all.' To which poor Francaise replied. 'Ah, be gar ! de grande deefference is, dat you Irishmans are used to it." Not Traveled by Pedlars. A ped lar, calling on an old lady to dispose of some goods, inquired of her if she could tell him of any road that no pedlar had ever traveled. 'Yes,' said she, 'I know of one, and only one, which no pedlar has ever traveled, (the pedlar's counte nance brightened,) and that's the road to heaven.' Georgia. The members of the Amer ican Party in the Georgia Legislature, have called a Stale Convention, to be held at Millegeville, on the 2d Thursday of December. The Convention is called under good auspices, and will be very fully attended. The organization is an open one. Proof of the fact that girls arc useful articles, and that the world could not very well do without them, a late writer slates it as a fact that if all the girls were driven out of the world, in one geneaation, the boys would all go out after them. Two deaf mutes, named George M. Barker nnd Amanda M. Bugbee, were married a few days since at Albany, N. Y.
