A silent tear found its way down the daughter's cheek but she served on, bravely striving against her erief and in dignation. If Jane prided herself upon any thing, it was her bouse keeping ; and Mr. Cleet knew it., If she had a virtue il .was disintrestednesB, and Mr., Cleet knew that also : he 'felt that he had gone a step too far, and resolved upon making aruenus, ana now, . in nis turn, orote tue , ' What's that you are sewing so busi lyj Jarie ?'

A stalwart man with a commanding presence eagle ejes, and a frown like night ? , No ; small and supple with pale yellow hair, yellow complexion, little, restless eyes, a testless undignified manner, crooked hands, and sharp, small voice this was Mr. Cleet. K.Jane had her mother s darker eomplec- tion and firmer charecter You could see .traces of spirit in her patient face, but it was patient still ; you could see evidence of scant means in her dress, but it was neat and tasteful nevertheless. They sat awhile in silence ; but the coming oi tea set Mr. (Jleet s tongue oose again. Jane wondered it it ever occurred to her father to ask mentally whether he was an enjoyable person whether a young warm heart like hers could be satisfied by such companionship whether daily, weekly, yearly enorts in his behalf, were worthily repaid by such incessant growling as ho ofi'ered in return. ' Do you call that tea ? ' Hr rb-drink, currant leaves 1 should think it had been boiled an hout! I'll be bound the old leaves , were not emptied from the pot!"

' If he's On that track again, it won't do to remind him thet last night he com plained that the buiscuits were tough, mused Jane." : , 1 She did not even venture .to offer the cake which she made that July morning with her. own hands, after spending three hours nt, the ironing table, polishing her lathers shuts. - . It wss Mr. Cleets favorite cake, and he found it oUi with no assistance, and ate so freely, that Jane took heart again. i "Mo you like the cake papa.i" " Cake am I eating cake?

But pray don't scowl, it makes you look so old ; and if you'll excuse the remark, the higher notes of your voice are not pleas ant." .-:. v "A breakfast without coflise is not pleasant, if you'll excuse the remark, Mrs. Lleet, and when Jano was here, we. never had a breakfast without coffee, if you'll excuse the remark, Mrs. Cleet !" upsetting nis chair in the march, our bfidgroom went to ffis store. .

Bui alas for human hopes ! Nb peni tent Mrs,- Cleet sat awaiting him. The fire had gone out in the dining-roorq; no table was set, lio preparations for dinn er of any kind, were visible. , , . Down into the kitchen thundered Mr. Cleet. ' :"IIere ! Sarah, Briget, all of you ! what are you dmng i" v. ; . vvasiiing, sir. naven t got our clothes out vet. ' Monfitrnns w.ish. sir ! ilrs.'

V- --.,-. :-'. .' i V' .. V- -r FRIENDS IN HEAVEN. He must be an unhappy man indeed who has not a single friend. There must be a ' sad admixture of churlishness or malice in his composition something crooked or crabbed in his very make. On the other hand, he is a rich man who is rich in honest friends. They make up a great estate. He who can rill his house, or fill his heart, with those who shall be to him as David was 10 Janathan, or as Newton was to his brother poet, Cowper he is the social Croesus. The beauti ful and sympathetic intercourse of large, refined, loving, godly minds, is one of the truest types of heaven. It is an antepast of joys to come. It is the commence ment of a friendship that shall be perfect ed beside the crystal waters and under the shadows of the twelve fruit bearing trees. In the " many mansions" what intimacies shall spring up ! What com munings of sou I ! What conversations ! What re-unions of Christ's veterans from earth's spiritual battle fields ! What nar ratives they will relate to each other ! It is a stirring sight 10 see two Revo lutionary pensioners telling over the cam paTgns ihey fought through from Concord llndge to Yorktown; to hear them recall their common conflicts and their common triumphs ; how ihey leaped together into the deadly breach ; how they bore on to gether against the enemy's iron Bteel and hail of musket balls; how they came down like death upon the foe, how they huzzaed together from the ramparts when ine victory was won. I here will be -in heaven an . pbundauc of thrilling narra lives, from soul 10 soul, of what God has wrought through them and for them. Friends here who are in Chritt will, no doubt, be friends in heaven." The genial intimacies begun below will be perfected there. W he separations at the grave s mouth will be followed by the rapturous reunions before the throne of the Lamb. Apostles who parted al the stake of mar ly rduui will meet to congratulate each other on the martyr's crown. God's ho rdes, who shouted farewell in the amphi theatre of the lions, or amid the smother ing flames, will tell over their great "fight of afflictions,". all passed away for ever. Saints of different ages and centuries will meet Paul with Abraham the disciple who leaned bir Jesus' breast with that " man afteGod's own heart !" rr Luther will hold high converse with Augustine ; the Wilberforces of modern reform with the Josiahs, Ezra.", and oil er purifiers of ancient days. " When I get to heavers, said, the dying Emmons, "I shall hope to see Isaiah and David, and talk with them about a thousand things , but among them all, 1 am most anxious to seo and tain with the Apostle raul. " that was a most natural wish from the expiring man of God.- Who does not long and hope for that ' very interview when .we shall reach the better world ? What a pres sure there will be around that chiefest of God's apostles once the very chief of sinners ! How will we love to embalm with thankfulness his priceless services to us ana to tne whole , cliurcu 01 me Re ' 11. l .1 Tt deemer ! "' . , ' . ? The meetings in heaven will be end' less amazing affording ever now sur prises, and . ever' .fresh delights. Long sundered households will come together The husband will stand beside the wife in the white bridal array of the saints in light, and the wedlock of earth will be- come the everlasting union of Paradise the praying mother will embrace the child of ber early . vows and baptismal consecrations. Faithful pastors will walk amid their flocks, as the shepherd fsalm Ists did amid his father's fleecy charge on the bills of, Bethlehem. sThe teacher will re-assemble the grougs of his Sab bath school : and -in -the train of such glo rifled souls as Robert Raikes and Isabella Graham we may look to see great troops of rejoicing- children. ; i Those friendships awakened in heaven from a common fellowship , with Christ will know no end. . HerS friendships are proverbially fra'd and brittle. They break too often like the pipe-clay. - But no al ienation shall ever separate ' those who dwell in the same.palaoe ,of the Great King. V : No enmities will disturb the uni versal and unending harmony. All wll be as one," for all will follow' the Lamb whithersoever lie goeth, and he will lead them to living fountains ot waters. A Gain--. A merchant was the other day reproving the' keeper of a ;low grogery for his disreputable mode ot getting Uving,;V.;-:V'V:.'

"Ah, I have of ten heard of the board of health but I never saw it before.' Reputation is not Character. --, -"Strive to be worthy,".' said an old clergyman to a young man :" it is better to bane character than reputation." Rarely are great truths so pithily put. If reputation was less frequently confounded ; wiih character the aims of the young would be nobler, men more virtuous, so ciety altogether better. For reputition is often false, which character can never be, , The one is but a sham, tire other a iving fact. Reputation is what men think of us ; character is what we really are ". ' . - Yet, too many prefer. the shadow, to the substance. To enjoy the good report of men, even when undeserved, is sufficient to satisfy the majority. ' Ilencev instead of striving to be really worthy, thousands ;...:.. i .. . n .1.- . iiiiiguc uiujr yj Hpocur bo. 1 ucy nuiue ill tinsel when they ought to wear real gold. They try every art to be thought rich, fashionable, or cultivated, neglect ing, very often, the means which mighl make them what they wish, r They wear out their lives in persuit of a delusien. I bey practice keeping up appearances till ihey confound the sham with the reali ty, the shadow .with the substance, for getting mat the world soon pierces through their mask discovers what thev are, and despises them for false coin. 1 ake the case of a youtig lawvor, who, instead of mastering his profession, trusts to a l&tal facility ot woids, and thinks to soar -to -eminence and fortune without assiduity or other real merit., He gets, perhaps a sort of reputation by practicing pettifogging ci8C8, but he never rises above iliis; and at the end of twenty years be is no further on the road to fa.ne than be was at first. Take the mere trading politician, who instead of seeking to establish a name for statesmanship, prefers what he thinks the easier paths of cunning and corruption, and who, though he may secure Borne petty office, never becomes truly trreat: though he may juggle himselfinlo a fleeting reputa tion, never leaves behind the fames of a Webster or a Clay. Take the plausible, but inoompelent merchant, who though he may lor a while obtain credit, finally colapsed, recording to all the world what a bubble he has been.- We might go tlHoughJife in the same way ; we might celect examples from every class and pro fession, and the result would always be tlAe same, sooner or later the charlatan is found out, be his stage-tricks what they may. - Reputation cannot stand in the long run, aginst character. Honesty is the best policy even in re gard to one's good name. To be, not to seem, is wiser, even for .the "cm dren of this world," than to seem and hot to be. If a man has really no elevated aims, if ia care not to be worthy for the sake of virtue itself, 11 will yet pay him better, permanently 10 bo true and good than merely to put on the semblance of it. Huntington, the forger, appeared, for a awhile, to thrive on evil. Dishonesty, in his case was ostensibly lucrative. But where is he now ? Where are all the forgers, embezzlers and other false dia monds df the financial world ? 'The hon est, who have plodded along; and who are spending their bid age in comfort and nonor, even wuen not in luxury, tiave prospered more than themselves. ' But the lure of mere worldly success is but a base motive at the best. : 'f rue manhood seeks nobleness for its. own sake; : aspires to be, not to seem ,is prouder of character, even when unap preciated, than of reputation, if undeser ved.'

An affray occurred at Niagaia Falls on the 5ih inst., causing .considerable excite ment there. 1 The particulars are thus set forth by the Rochester Union, of (lie 6th inst. A gentleman from ? the south Ken tucky or Missiouri with bis wife and daughter, were stopping at the Internation al Hotel. On Tuesday ihey were on the Canada side, and took a ferry skiff to re turn. After the ladies had taken seals in the skiff, an impudent colored man took a seat between them. The gentleman who accompanied these ladies, the husband of one and faiher of the other, reques ted the negro politely to leave the seat, that he might occupy it. . The fellow re fused to change his seat, and gave abusive language ra return for politeness. The white man ejected the black man by force from the seat, and Choked him some. Yesterday morning the man and his wife came to the breakfast table of the- Inter National later than usual, and alter nearly aH the guests bad leftthe dining joom. Aftoraking his seat at the table beside his wife, the negio with whom he. had the altercation in the skiff on the previ bus day - came up to him and said, "You re the man ' who choked me yesterday." The reply was, ' Yes and I ought, to have thrown you into the river." . At this point the black fellow struck the man on the bead with a heavy tumb ler, felling him senseless to the floor. lhe wife of the gentleman thus assaulted rose, and with commendable heroism dealt lhe feuow a blow which restrained him. Without an instant of delay she ran up stairs to the room she occupied am. finding the door locked, her husband having the key, she iirst the door open seized a revolver, and ran to the dining room. By this time the black waiters had passed their companion out of the house and out of immediate danger. Tolerable quiet was restored by the inter ference of the proprietors of the house and their friends. - , . f, The negro who had caused the disturb ance ran to the liver bank, intending to cscape-U) Canada, but did not succeed. He was arrested by a constable, and while on his way to answer to .the magistrate, in passing a hotel, a shot was fifed from the second story window. , The ball did no mischief, but passing near the con stable .and ' his prisoner. Who fired the shot no one has yet ascertained, or at least it is not publicly known. It is charged upon both parties. , . The negro was before a magistrate, examined and found guilty of the assault, The magistrate decided to sentence the fellow to pay a fine of $15 and to jail for three months. The Southerner who was assaulted came -forward and requested that the fellow be not sent to jail. The magistrate (hen changed the sentence to a fine off 25, which was paid. Disclosures of a Liquor Dealgr. Mr. Delavan, President oi the New York Stale Temperance Society, in his recent address at the Capitol in. Albany, dwelt mainly on the now prevalent adulteration of liquors i ; .;: , " Within a few weeks,", he said, ' it has come to my knowledge, that a person whose conscience revolted at his employ ment, in a largo liquor establishment, left it for a more innocent and creditable business. He stated that it now only took ten, some say four gallons of puie whiskey to make a barrel of the whiskey of commerce. To these are added rain water, camphene.an'd arsenic ; the latter to restore the bead destroyed by the water. He stated also that brandy made to imi tate the real French brandy, and of. the most poisonous character, was sold at 94 a gallon, : costing 23 cents. That all kinds of wine were imitated so closely, that the best judges ' could not discrimi nate, costing but a trifle, nnd Bold at pri ces to suit customers. The higher the standing of the customer, and' the more particular as to his wines, the higher thB price to satisfy him as to quality. .' The most celebrated brands .were made use of, and the names of the' most celebrated European dealers given as the sources of supply ; and the Jbiuropean' dealers, be it known, are not much behind tne Amen can traders in their adulteration. r ; i True Eno c oh. Clark B, CocLtanc Esq., delivered a Fourth of July oration at'.Troyj N.Y.j in' the course of which he made this sharp pertinent and just re- ' "It is the distinguished glory of -the Fourth of July, 1778, that, the cardinal truth in theAwbole logic of human rights, without circumlocution or useless orna ments, first found national expression and embodiment in the Declaration of Inde pendence, lie who at that day ventured publicly to denounce that insururnent, as mere 'glittering generalities,1 .would ibave found, but one place of safety a rotreot, behind the British lines.' , ' ' .. i V,-n G L:E C 0 P I E S : ;t t .
