"Well," said I, ono tine morning lust week, "I have the prospect of a leisure afternoon a some what unusual thing with me ami, all being well, 1 will do a littlo needful shopping ; call and pass an hour with my old friend Mrs. Ashburton, whom, on account of tho distance, I huvc neg lected of late ; and then drop in to take a friend ly up of lea with my niece, Clara Whitford." Having completed my household arrangements, I accordingly set out, after nn early dinner, and, the shopping done, made the first cull Mrs. Ash burton's warm welcome, pleasant talk, and cheer ful fireside, would have proved strong temptations to induco me to accept hi r invitation to remain for the evening, had 1 not lelt anxious to sea my niece, whose residence was much nearer my own. . Ou arriving at Clara's door, I was a little sur prised to see a light in the Iront part of tho house. " I am afraid they are from home," thought 1, with a regretful mental glance backward at tho pretty home picture I had just left. But I was mistaken. A servant came, in answer to my ring at the door-bell, and, ushering me into tho dining room, lighted tho pas, and wont to summon her mistress. 1 had ampljime to look about mo be fore Clara made her appearance, and could not help admiring tho perfect order and good taste which prevailed in both the apartment and its fur niture. I was the more pleased to note this, us my niece, when unmarried, did not promise to be come very notable as a housewife. . 1 was beginning to tiro of waiting as, my bri.-k walk over, I felt chilly in the Tireless room when -Clara ontercd, fastening a little article of dress, evidently just assumed. Her greeting was most coidial ; yet there was a shade of regivt in her tone, when, our first salutations was over, she eaid " Why, my dear aunt, did you not let me know you w.-re c lining, and 1 should have been .better prepared to receive you ?" "Surely, Clara," 1 replied,- no preparation is needed before you can bestow a cup ol tea on ho near a relative as 1 am. Tray do not make my friendly call into a ceremonious visit ; or I shall be tempted to run away again, iu place of waiting fos tea, and begging Mr, Whitford's escort home." ' Pray, dour aunt, do not think ot such a thing. 1 will light this fire in a moment, and the room will be warm and comfortable." So saying, Clara was ubout to apply a light between the bi'rs of tho grate, when 1 stopped her. ."You must have a fira somewhere, my dear," I aaid ; "and where you were sitting when I ar rived, will, I am sure, suit me the best. If I am to disturb any of your arrangements, I will leave you forthwith. " then, if so, aunt, you will have to excuse my lakina vou into the nursery." "Anywhere to u warm fireside, Clara ; but is Mr. Whitford from home T" "No, aunt, he is here," replied my niece, her color rising as she spoke. . I laughingly congratulated her ou her husband's liking tor the company oi ner nrsc-oorn ; cut, perceiving no eviueuce ot pleasure on ner coun tenance, 1 asked if the baby wns well. Oh yes, quite so, thank you, aunt. To say ihe truth, it is my doing that we are in tho nurse- xy. to-night, and rodericK is too well please.. bout it ; but it saves so much trouble, und the other room have just been cleaned and put in or der. But do not say a word," she added, us she opened the nursery door. My nephew advanced, shock mo warmly by the .hand, and then, turning to Clara, he said : "1 tope, my dear, you do not intend to make youi aunt a uursery guest, li you do, l snail not woti der if her visits become, still more rare.'' : I hastened to assure him that I had bi en brought there at my own request, and begged no difference might bo made; but quietly ringing ike bell, he desired the servant to ligh the dining room Ere, und bring wor 1 when it was well burnt. Clara bit her lip, and looked red and uncomforta ble, while I, feeling still more so, occupied myself in admiring the baby. 1 could, however, distin guish easily enough two or three; little articles which convinced mo that a tea equipage hud just boon removed ; and certainly this was not what 'I should have expected to see in Clara's home, knowing tho comfortable und even ufllieut income .of her husband. I felt sorry my unceremonious visit should have produced such au alteration iu the arrangements ; fori could tell, from the pro duction et sundry keys, &o., &e., that many arti cles not in common use were to be brought out, and the evening meal deferred ou my account Besides this, I felt grieved at Mr. Whitford's Ill concealed vexation, uot displayed towards mo, but bis wife. . At length wa were summoned to the dining room ; end truly a wonderful ci.inge had been effected there. A bright fire illuminated every comer ; an elegant tea equips was on iha ta ble; in short, cveitbing looked as I hud hoped at first to fiii I it in uccordunce with the posi tion of the owners. Moreover, the pleasant as pect of affairs binis'ie.l the cloud from Mr Whitford's face, and s i agneably did the time pass, that I quite regretted when obliged to ui.i ray niece good night. VGood night, dear aunt," said Clara, sff o tiouttely kissing me : ' do come ssain very toon, but do let me know when to expect you." ..'And then," added Mr. Whitford, lifter the door wss closed, "the dining-room fire will be lighted before your arrival. Dar sunt, what do' you think of Clara's new notions respecting domestic economy 1 When we were first mar lied, she was rather ignorant of household nut ters ; now we are so exceedingly orderly an. I can-fiil, lhat every thin is too g o I to usu. The drawing room tindetwvnt a ihorouuli leno vation ; and the nursery, resorted to for tempo rary convenience during the repairs, has become our regular abode, the others being used on state occasions. Probably our next remove will bo in the kitchen. I go into other houses nnd find that their masters can introduce a friend at any time, with the certainty of causing no embar rassment. In my homj, on the contrary, tho call of a relative even produces quite a do mestic revolution ; for plate, china iu fact, everything presentable, is i aid up in lavender, like the rooms. I wish you would say some thing to Clara on tho subject, and I know you nossoss creat influence in that ouirter." "Have you named the miller, Frederick ?'' I', ailed. "I will try, at anv rate," said I, as I took leave of my nephew in law. Having thought over the matter, I arranged inv plan of operation. I decided it would be better to try the effect of an opposite picture on Clara's mind, before giving i.Meruiiee to any remonstrance, tor 1 well knew that oung house wives do not generally relish the pointed inter ference of their el lers. I th' refore called for Clara -having previously given her due notice of inv intention to accompany me iu a loi: ramble; an I 1 contrived to be near Mrs. Ah burtous just as tea time was appioaching, and we were thoroughly tired. ' Clara," said 1, " what i there to prevent our obtaining rest and refreshment? lean assure you a el come to both, and. beside, you are not quite a stranger to Mrs. Ashburton." "Oh, dcur, aunt, 1 could not think of such a thing; we should be sure to cause incon venience." "You shall judge for yourself, Clara," I an swered ; "and if you think so half an hour hence, we will journey homeward.' The moment we were admitted I frankly told my friend that I had come expressly to claim her oft-tendered hospitality for my niece and self as we were, but still had a long walk before 113. "How glad I am that my house lay in your loute !'' replied s'.e. "Tea is just coining in, and my husband will be here, directly." Iu a few moments he arrived, und we were all seated, prepared to loin in luu social meal. 1 noticed Clara's glance at the perfect order which surrounded ns, and the elegant but simple prepa ra ions for tin repast, Besides these, it whs i mi - possible not to let I the thorough comfort diffused uround us. "My mere,'' said I to Mrs. Ashburton, " was afraid of causing you inconvenience by coining! upwards, am! taking two places ut your tea-table t,y storm." A cheery laugh from Ashburton and a bright smile fioni his wife, followed inv words. "Airs. Whitford," said the gentleman, " 1 am the most foit'.iuute fellow in the world, for nothing even causes my wi:e inconvenience. ou understand me, I dare say 1 mean none of those domestic invasions which are usually expected to cause a bustle. She hisa p'culi.ir theory of her own, which she most thoroughly reduces to practice, consequently we are always able to welcome n friend, however unexpected th ! guest in ly be." Clara blushed, and stammered a lew words iu repU ; and. perceiving her confusion, I change I the conversation. On our wiy home, after spending a delightful e veil ill niece was unusually silent ; but nt lengili sh" asked il I could tell li 'i what theory Mr A-hlmrlou alluded to when he said Here she li' si ute I. " 1 undersoil ! you, Clara," I answered, "and I can explain it to you in a few words. Mrs. Ashburton siys that, being sure of the daily presence of our i;ust at her table, whom she wishes t honor above all cvli-rs, she always prepares for that one, and is of course ready foi any visitor, uud at uny lime." " But I say no guests besides ourselves.'' " Did you not? And yet th person 1 uliu led to was tiieie." "Where? whom do you mean? You are j 'Stiii r." 'Indeed, my dear Clara, I am not. Th : one whom Mrs. Ashburton considers worthy of all honor, is her husband. She says, and I think justly, that she should think her marriage vow but ill performed did she bestow puius to make her home, attractive to- the eye of a stranger, and fjrudgo doing so for him whom she has promised to love, honor and obey her husbau.l, and the father of her children." Clara did not speak iu reply ; but when wj parted, the moistened cheek that touched mine convinced me that the lesson was taken home; and I have little doubt that when I next visit my niece, 1 shall find her opinion is changed as regards the guest more deserving or honor. Grand Triumph of Religious Toleration Grand Triumph of Religious Toleration--A Jew in Parliament. The I tig i foieign niv,.l brings the account of the admission id 15-iron Rothschild to Parlia ment, he having heretofore been refused a Seut because he would noi take the prescribed oat h , " upon the. faith of a Christian."

The clerk, after conferring for a moment wiih Biron Rothschild, informed thu Speaker that the hon. member desired to be sworn on the Old Testament, as being more binding on his con science. The Speaker Lit the hon member be sworn. The clerk then read over tho words of the oaths, which the hon. gentleman repeated after him, omitting the words "On the true faith of a Christian.' The form of the abjuration used by the hon. member was "so help me Jehovah,'1 vhile uttering tha words he, according to the Jewish custom, cover 'd his head. The moment the c reinouy was eouvileted, and the hon. mem ber hud signed his name to the Parliamentary roll, he wis aeuiu rwiled with loud cheers.

He was brought out on ii balcony, and received w i til loud cheers. Upon being introduced to the gathering in the street, he spoke as follows : Fellow Citizens : You take me entirely by surprise. It is impossible lor me to express the feelings which agitaie my bosom hen received in s kiml a manner as I have been to-day, by the citizens of Boston. I came to your city a few days ago upon a visit to my own native "Commonwealth," of New Hampshire, but you have made, me feel, by your kindness, ns if 1 were not a stranger, but a brother. My ances. ters were among those who shared the early tri als of this Commonwealth, and 1 trust I carry with me the It ;h of the lathers of New Kng laud in those rent principles of civil and relig ious liberty which have distinguished your Com monwealth in its glorious progress. I have be come a citizen of a State which was then a VVYsierii Stale, but has now, in the progress of population, und the wonderful expansion of our glorious Republic, become not a Western State, hardly a Central Suit ', but almost an Eastern State (win sifter of Mussm husetts, and still the Empire State ol the Valley of the Mississip pi.

I was riding along the banks ol i he Ohio, with mat illustrious citiz'ii of Massachusetts win se remains now repose up on the shore ot Maishlield, and he said to me. contrasting the appturance of oueshore with the other, the great progiess ol Ohio with the slow progress ol Ivcniucky : "My young friend, do you know what has made all this diliercuee? It is the Ordinance." That lns done it the Ordinance which, iu its own glorious language, impressed upon the soul ol Ohio an incapacity to bear up any other than free men. It was that Ordinance which did it. And whence came that Ordinance? Why, fellow citizens, it came from Massachusetts. That Ordinance came from a Beverly man; it wus the work of Naih nn Dine. It was, therefore, Massachusetts wis dom and Massachusetts patriotism, which, God be thanked, reaching lorward into the future, impressed upon ihe soil of Ohio, lhat glorious incapacity. And now, fellow citizens, what have we to do? Our country expects us, the world expects of ns, that we shall never prove faithless to those glo rious principles which came to us iu the May flower, which were rcittratcd in the Ordinance, uud wnic!i are now scattering their manifold blessings over the great West, and have already brought California into the Union, as the tluc"ii Slate of the Pacific, clothed ail over in the glo rious panoply of Ireeduin In order to adminis ter the Constitution us understood by our fath ers, und in order to obtain those glorious results at which t'ley aimed, we must see. to U that our principles of freedom ure made to animate eve ry function of the Government and every oflieer concerned in its administration. And to do that, what is our duty? Why, simply that we disregard herulter those petty differences which we hive sullere l to divide us; not to inquire wlr iher the man was yesterday or the day before u Whig, American or JJemecrat : but whether he is penetrated by the great Whig principles ol "7ti, the great American principle which setdis to place the American nation in the front rank of nations, in power and action, us she already is til freedom, and whether ho is animated by that glorious principle of Democracy which be lieves iu the. humanity ol every man, ana de nies to ull legislatures nnd to nil associations of individuals Mie power to take away any man's rieh;s which (jo 1 has given htm asking only whether he is animated by these great principles, forgetting all the pa.-t, and pressing on to achieve the. ei'eut results tor which our lathers prepared the way.

And you will further find, when you come to measure yourself with men, thai there are no ri vals so formidable us those earnest, determined minds, which reckon the vuhie of every hour, and which achieve eminence by perMstent application. Literary ambition may ii.ll ime you ut certain periods ; und a thought of some great name will Hash like a spark into the mine ot your purpose ; you dream until midtdght over books ; you set up shadows, and chase i hem down other shadows, and they fly.

BY B. F. TAYLOR The world is finished, its spinal cord is lal 1, and now it begins to think. A lixlng nervo has been unwound from the Anglo-Saxon heart, and tied in it true love knot be tween the Old World and the New; Time turns loiteier on its westward way, und Sua, the narrow selvedge of the globe. When tho Crystal Palace was opened in London like a gftut eye, its rutin painted with all forms of art and science and industrial skill everywhere; from the marble that only waited Divinity s smile, to kindle into life, sing it Meiiiuoiiian. and bid hu manity make room for it in heart and household, to the tall corn, that had waved its green sabres uml saluted a prairie morning; from the India lace, " the woven air" of Dacca, thnt ono night's Jew could hide, to tho American canvas that stands uiireut, like a sea-birds wing, in the pipings of Cape Horn: when that Rival eye of tho laboring Ago was thus tilied Willi Us shapes ol beauty, there came to it iu a sealed case, a imniuti. ok rxowKR. plucked from the bosom of the New, nnd sent all fresh and fragrant as they Were, a token to the Old. We remembered wlnt long years of experimen tal toil, alternately darkened bv defeat and bright ened by glimmers of success, that little gift had cost; what earnest workers, what horizon makers, had died without the sight; what mines had been wrought, wliui forges glowed, what chemists stud ied, what Knltons triumphed; anil of all these, those western tlowciv weie token, The leaves must fade, they said, but can we narrow space nnd lend captive time, and lay them blooming yet within tliut English heart bewnd the sea? H seemed to us then thai nosegay liko a fresh thought, borne over the waters even as Ihe olivo brunch of old, ami like that branch, a token of love and peace. It was a bringing near of the ends of tho earth; it was a flower that had grown beside a kindred Saxon's door; we were neighbors; we were friends. It seems to us now this Oceanic Telegraph a kindred triumph, though a closer bond. There has been a wedding in the English household, uud this morning the Old World woke like Adam, with a bride, and found tho New World sleeping by his side. To-day, we hope, but if not to-day, if no! ul ready, then some oicr day, there shall come from tiie court of St. James, to the President ol this Republic, the pleasant voice of woman: it shall hid him and it, " Good morning and good mor row!'' a wish for now uud a hope for then; il shall be thu voicj of England's royal lady; and then, face to luce in that sweet presence, ui curli est as a prayer, the Pie.tident shall answer for him self and for u, "God save the Uu"en!" And beyond the golden nmuilo of our western uoon, those words, the greeting and response shall go down into the deep, dry-shod, as went the Pil grims guided by ihe God or the defied Sea; and they shall conio up, here and there, from the sublime baptism, with all the freshness and ftoedoiu of u spoken answer. And this is no achievement to make mere woe. der; within the sea, set like a precious writing in a mighty enietnld, is one line more of the earthly Gospel of sweet pence. No bilter thoughts can crow inveterate now; no time for weaving dink Suspicion's web; no space to make the warm word cold. I ho azure curtain hung so low betwacn two Cou:iociits, that its folds were trailing ou the deep, a ludiant bund has put aside, mid in the blue eni brazure, like two friends, they stand und whisper round tliewnrld. And when wc think of tho.-o weary tossiujrs on the winter sea, mouth after mouth; wIihii wo re member how like the " Ancient. Mariner, they hung for breathless weeks amid ihe summer calms, that lay upon the waters like the Savior's " peace I ' on stormy Galilee, " Pay afUr day, day nftnr day.

The old Northron caught the Morning by its wings, and wrested from it the time und secret of its flight; a Gallic hand stayed il us il flashed from a human face en route for heaven ugain, nnd lo, upon tho metalic plate, " tho couutoil'eit present ment," an Enjflishm in locked it up, us he. express ed it, in a cell of iron, and thu locomotive darted like a shuttle through tho iron loom; an American kindled a glowing soul within the ribs of oak, uud sent the hteamship panting round the world. Greater than ull these is that American Prome theus who brought down tiro from heaven, ami lived to tell the story. What shall wo say of Itiui then, who played schoolmaster to those loud-voice tongues of flame, and taught them the language wherein one bhukespcure wrote, one Milton sang; who baptised them iu tho Atlantic, by un Anglo- baxon iiume, that they may go speuluiig forever such words as hearth and heart, us homa, hope and heaven.

The skin of his body was clear and soft, the only hair that m l the eye was a line thin lino which lau down fioni the neck towards the navel.
