Iu th library of a largo' mansion on

all that wchHIv and taste could desire.

no. : ; " .
'Perfectly snid the enthusiastic girl.
As for me,' said Susie, I ask only for
lovo, and a happy homo of my own;' and
as she spoke, a rosy, blush suffused her
. . '..'Wellilono, Susie,' was the general cry,
mid a burst of laughter, 'you are sure to
have your wish, if Fred Wharton has his
way; we should be fortunate, if there was
t ns good a prospect of our success.' . ,
After a little more of good-natifred rail-
lory, they called upon Ellen, a quiet, pleas-ant-looking
;; , ,'X would like,' saidslio, 'to do my duty
to my fellow creatures; to teach the gospel
w'the poor heathen.',.
'Weil; I have no aueh whimsical ideas

silence was broken in n few minutes by an

her wish, ana feeling an interest in you
all, I remained silent. I hope you will
forgive me, Bad grant my wihii,'

from lo-!ii"ht we will meet here nain.'
If our lives are spared,' said the old
gentleman. 'My dear girls' he continu
ed, 'I hope your wishes will all he grant
ed, if they will add to your happiness.'
Allice'3 i am sure will,' and ho imprinted
a kiss upon the forehead of the lovely girl,
;iud it we nil thought woieot heaven than
we do,' he continued, we should bo far
happier. 'But come, Susie,' he resumed,
changing his tone, 'if we do not go down
soon, I am afraid your wish will not be
granted. I dare say Fred hns been pacing
baek and forth this long timo anxiously
waiting your arrival. I fear I kave incur
red his displeasured, for he told mc, as I
left the room, to bo as expeditious as pos
sible; for ho had not seen you for three
days.' And with a merry laugh at poor
Susio's expen"e, the party descended to
the drawing room.
A year later, as, they had promised, the
same group were again assembled in tho
library. Let us look in on them.
Time has wrought some change in their
personal appearance, but a greater change
in their hearts. They are not as light
hearted; their laugh rings less joyously;
but there is slill much happiness in tht-ir
countenances. After dialling awhile,
their grandpa said.
'Well, girls, vou all know whet we come
here for; pray proceed, for I am impatient
to hear you. Begin, Julia.
'My wish has been granted,' said she.'
'This liiild hook, and she laid her hand
upon a small Volume of poems wlii.di lay

said grandpa. 'Have vou never sijrlied for
something higher and nobler than the np
plau.'e of the multitude?'
'It has never, said Julia, 'brought me
one hour's happiness. It has gratified my
ambition, indeed. But there u a void in
my heart which their praises do not fill.
'Come, Susie,' said she, nnd with a light
lniiffh she endeavored to throw olf tho
rrloom which had settled upon her brow,
'let us have your experience, inougli we all
know your wish has been granted,'
'It has, indeed,' said Susie, who hai
bore the name of Wharton for a number of
months.' This has been a hnppy year to
me. and' I have learned muuh. It has
taught me that 1 must not livo for myself
alone; there is another whose happiness
depends on . me; and if I would keep the
love 1 have won, I must conform to his
wishes nnd habits, nnd endeavor to make
hi3 home pleasant. " Wo hnve been very
haDDV thus far, and it shall not be my
fault if we do not contiune so. God grant
we may.'
'That is right, my child, that is right
said the grandsire, 'too many marriages

There should bo mutual concession. " You

'I have not attained my wish said she

Allice, who was also present, had chang
ed much daring the past year. Her whole
appearance betokened the swift approach
of death. Her eyes gleamed with an un
natural lustre, and her skin which was of
dazzling whiteness, was heightened by tho
hectic spot, which burned on cither check;
A few short weeks, days, or even hours,
and her place would be vacant.
A pang shot through the hearts of tho
group, as they gazed upon her, and the
tears coursed down their checks in silence.
'Why should you weep . f.ir me, dear
cousins?' said Alice. '1 am going homo
to my heavenly Father, no more to suffer
or to sin. My wish has been granted me,
and 1 can now, with sincerity say, Thv
will, not mine be done.' But it has. caus
ed me many a heart-struggle, to reconcile
myself. Aftor I realized that my days
were numbered, I endeavored to turn my
thoughts and desires away from earth and
hx them on holier things, lhe worst of
all is to feel that I must leave my dear par
ents alone. May God comfort them! We
shall probably never meet again on earth
she continued, 'but, oh, I entreat you, ob
tain that peace of mind w hich passeth all
understanding. It will make vou hartv
through life, and comfort you on your dying
betl. ,
She ceased, and the group, sadly and in
silence, left tho room.
A few short days, and Alice was laid in
the silent tomb.

Intcrcstiiig and fitartlins.
An Eastern paper records, in the sim
ple but graphic language of an eye-wit
ness a brakemnn on the cars, from - which
tho editor receidjit the annexed ac
count of'oiieofjflie most tliriflingTncidents
inagiunblc. It is a true one, the engineer
should be given:
It was about half past nine o'clock in the
morning, the deuse fog through which we
ad been running for the last four or five
lours, had rendered tho track so slippery
that we had lost considerable time in climb
ing the up grades; but we were running
own a moderate grade, and as the fog
was gradually clearing away, we had ven
tured to increase our speed; and our en
gineer, ever attentive to his business, was
constantly watching the track uhead, which
was occasionally enveloped in. thick clouds
t watery vapor. A we were running a-
long, 1 observed the engineer raise Lis
land to the cord attached to the whistle.
He held it for a moment and then gave the
nal to 'brake. lurnmgmv eyes in the
direction that we were moving,! wasbarely
able to discern some smull object on the
track a considerable distance ahead, but
could not make out what it wn. A mo
ment later tho engineer repeated tho sig
nal to 'brake in that peculiarly startling
manner which was instantly recognized by
the experienced brakesman as indicating
imminent danger. The engine was revers-
d as if by liingie, and as tho steam was
applied, the driving wheels whirled round
in the opposite direction to that which the
train was moving. 1 now discovered that
tho object before us was a littlo child, ap
parently, unaware of its dange-r. I he al
most constant screaming of the whistle
with which the engineer sought to fright
en it from the track seemed only to amuse
it. i. he wheels of onr engine grated and
hissed upon the iron track, unable to stop
the train, which, owing to the slippery
condition of the rails, it was certain would
send us far bevond Tvhero the child was
standing before we could stop. Thus we
rushed with the. almost certainty that in
the next minute that innocent, unsuspect
ing child, too young to know its danger,
would be a mangled corpse. Turning my
eyes to seo if there was no one near to save
it, 1 saw a lady who seemed to bo almost
flying toward the child, but one glance
showed me that the engine would reach it
beforo her. The engineer had left his post
nnd was now running rapidly along the
frame to the front of the engine. In cn in
stant he was crouching upon the 'cow
catcher with one foot upon tho lower bar,
nnd . ins leu nana homing to tiio irame
work, nnd his right extended toward the
child which, at the very moment it would
have boeh crushed he caught it by its little
arm, raised it from the track, and bore it
along in safety. One moro minute, and
tho child, uninjured, was restored to its
mother s arms. Brakemak.

religious views: -.-1
have for fhirly years earnestly hoped

to the time when and the means whereby
this is to be attained I have no immovable
conviction though my views have general
ly accorded nearly with those held by tho
Unitarian RestorationistS. In other words,
I believe that tho moral character formed
in this life will be that in which we shall
awake in the life to come, and that many
die so deeply stained and taintrd by lives
of transgression and depravity that a tedi-'
ous and painful discipline must precede and
prepare for their admission to the realms of
eternal purity and bliss.
