MISCELLANEOUS.
THE FAMILY.
BY T. S. ARTHUR.
"I'll not live this way!" exclaimed M ri. 1 1
i Lyon psssionatsly. "Such disorders, wrsng T
r ling, and irregularity, rc I) me of peace and
makes the buUM a bedlam, instead of u
quiet home. Tom!" she spoke sharply to i
a bright little fellow who wal pounding i
away with a wooden hammer on a chair
and making a most intolerable din, "atop
that MUM this instant!" And you lam, not
a word from your lips. Ii you can't live
in peace with your sister, I'll separate you.
D'ye hear hush! this instant. "4
"Then make Jnle give me my pin cush
ion. She's got it in her pocket."
"It is no tucli thing, 1 hate not," re
torted Ju'.ia.
'You huve, I uy."
"I tell you I bevn'ti
"Will you hush!" The face ol Mrs.
Lyon was fiery red; aim ahc stamped upon
the floor as she spoke. .
"I want my pin-cushion. Make Julc
give me my pin-cushion."
Irriated beyond control. Mrs. Lyon caughl
Julia by the arm, and thrusting her hand
In her pocket, drew out a thimble, a piece
Of lace and a pen knife.
"I told you it wasn't there. Couldn't
you believe me!"
This impertinenco wis more than the
tnolher could endure, and acting upon lier
indignant impulses, she boxed the ears of
Julia soundly, con-sinus ut the same time,
that Emily was chiefly to blame for t',
this trouble, by a wrong Sacculation of her
aister, sho turned upon her, also, administ
ering an equal punishment. Frightened by
all this, the younger children whose in
cessant noise, for tlie last hour, had con
tributed to the overth row of llieir mother's
temper, became suddenly quiet, and skulk
ed away into corners, and the baby, that
was aeated on ti e floor, between two pil
lows, curved her quivering lips, and glanc
ed fearfully up to the distorted face in
which sho hud been used to see the love
light that made her heaven.
A deep quiet followed this burst of pas
sion like the hush that succeeds the storm.
Alas, lor the svll traces that were left be
hind. Alas, fur the repulsive image ol
that mother daguerrcotypd in (an instant,
on the memory of her children, and never
10 be cfTiiccd. HOW tunny, innny t!mc,ln
after yen, will not n sigh bssVS their
bosom la (hat painful reflection looks out
upon them from amid the detircr remem
braneea of childhood.
A woman with good Impulses, but with
scarcely, any control, was Mrs f.yon. She
loved her children, ami desired their .good j
Thit they showed Eo little hirhesrance.onc
with the other, manifested so littlo fratern
al sflecllon, grieved her deeply.
"My whole life is mnde unhappy by it!"
she would often say, "What is to be done!
It is dreadful to think of a lomily growing,
up in discord and disunion. Sister at vari
ance with ailtert and brother lilting his
hand IgalDst bro'her."
As was iimal alter an ebullition of pas-'
sion Mrs. Lyon, deeply depressed in spirits
as well as discouraged, retired frrm her
family to grieve and weep, til'titg the
frightened baby from the floor she drew its
head tenderly against her bosom, and leav
ing the nursery sought the quiet of hor
own room. There in humiliation, she re-,
called the stormy scone thro' which she
had just passed, and blamed (irrr.elf for
yielding blindly to passion instead of meet
ing the trouble among her children with 11
quit t discrimination.
To Weeping calmness succeeded. Stiil,
she wal perplexed in mind, us well as
grieved at her own wunt of sell-control
What was to be doiio with her children.'
How wero they to br; governed arlgliti
Painfully did sho feel her own unfitness
l"r the i.-k. By this time the baby was
sleep, mid the mother felt something of
ihat tranquil peace that every true mother
knows, when a young babe is numbering
in her bosom. A hook lay on n shell near
there she was sittug, and Mrs. Lyon,.
ICsrcely conscious of the act reached out
her hand lor the volume. She opened it
without feeling any interest in its contents
hut she had only read a few sentences
when tins remark arrested her attention:
"All right government of children begins
with self-g ivernmont " 1
The words seemed written for her, and,
the truth expressed was elevated instantly
Into perception. She saw it in the clearest
light, and closed the book and bowed her
;iead in sad acknowledgment of her own
lirors, Thus lor some time, she had been
iniHg, when the murmur oi voices from
below grew more snd more distinct, and I
he was s ion aroused to the painful foot,
that, as usual) when left alone, the child
ren were wrangling among themselves.
Various noises, as ol pounding on, and
throwing about chairs, and other pieces ol
furniture were heard, and at length a loud
scream, mingled with angry Vociferations
mote upon her ear.
Indignation swelled instantly in the heart
if Mrs. Lyon, and hurnediy placing the
lleeping ha'e in its crib, she started for
the Fcene ef disorder, moved by on impulse
to punish severely the young reOels u
laiiist her authority, ami was hall way
joWB sleirs when her feet were cheeked
ly remembrance of the sentiment:
"All right government of children begins
with self-government."
"Will anger subdue it tiger 1 When storm
inee's storm is the tempest stilled!" These
were questions asked of herself, ulinost in
voluntarily. "This is no spirit iii which to I
meet my children. It never has, never will
enforce order snd obedience," she added, as
lie stood upon the stairs, struggling with
herself, and striving for the victory. From
Ihe nursery came louder sounds of disorder.
How weak the mother felt I Vet in this
very weakness was strength,
"I must not stand iuly here," she said,
la a shaiper rry of anguish smote hor ears
and so she moved on quickly, and opening
tho nursery dour, stood revealed to her
children. Julia had just raised her hand to
strike Emily who stood confronting her
with a fiery face, 1 0th were n little start
led ut their mother's suddenjjappesrauoend
bath, expecting li e storm which usually
came at such itucs, began to assume the j
iefisnt, stubborn uir with which ber intern
perute reproofs wero aways met.
A few men'onte did Mis. Lyon standi
looking al her children grief, not anger,
upon her pule countenance. How still, si!
became, What a look of wonder came
gradually into the children's faces, as they
glanced one st the other. Something el !
ilinnio was next visible. An I no.e, the!
mother wiis conscious of s new power over!
tlie young rebels ul her household.
"Emily," Mlid she, speskmg luililty snd I
yet with a (ouch uf sorrow In her voice:
she could not subdue, "I wisli you would
go up into my room and sit with Mary
while she sleeps."
Without a sign ol opposition, or even of
reluct nice, Emily went quietly from the
nurstry, in obedience to her mother's de
Sires. "This room is very much in disorder,,
Julia.
Many times Mrs. Lyon said, tin ler 1 ic
circumstances, "why don't you iput things
to rights! Or 1 never saw sueh girls.' l!
all in the room was top y turvey, and .the
llft'T un inch thick With dirt, you'd never
turn over t band to inn things to order,"
or, "Ou anil g t the broom, this minute,
and sweep up the room. You're the Ja
Ziest g.n that ever uved." Mu'iy, iinny
times as we liavi si.id, had such lunguige
been sddrossed by Mrs. Lyon uudei hie !
eirvumstsnces to Julia ami her sisters,
without producing snthing better than
u grumblicgi partial execution ol her wish
es. Hut now the mild intimation that tho
room was in disorder, produced all the ef
fects desired. Julia went quietly about the
work of restoring things to their right pla
ces, and in a few minutes, order was ap
parent where confusion reigned before.
Little Tommy, whose love of hammering
was an incessant annoyance to his mother,
ceased his din mi her sudden appearance,
and for a few moments in expectation of
a boxed ear; for a time he was puzzled to
understand the new aspect of affairs.
Finding that ho was not under the ban, a
usual, lie commenced slipping a stick ou r
the top of nn old table, mailing it mot
Srpiecing ROisl Instantly Jul, a said Ins
low voice t him
"Don't Tommy, don't do that. You
know it Irakis mother's1 h"ad BOflo."
"Doe it make your heHil ache Brother!"
asked the child, curiously, nnd With a pity
ing tone in his voice, as he cane creeping
up to his mother's side, nnd looked at her
as if in doubt whether ho would be repul
sed or not.
"Sometimes it does, tny son," repii- d
Mrs. Lyon, kindly, ' and it is always
unpleasant. Won't you try to tplay with
out making so niuel: noise."
"Yes, mother, I'll try," answered the lit
tie fellow; cheerfully. "But I'll forget
sometimes."
He looked al his mother, ae if something j
more wus in his thoughts.
"WeI dear, What else!" said she en-j
souragingly,
"When i forget, you'll tell me, won't I
yor!"
"Yes, love."
"And then I'll stop. But don't scold!
me, mother! 'or then 1 oan'l stop."
.Mrs. Lyon's heart was touched. She
Caught her breath, and bent her lace down,
to conceal Its expression, u,,li it rested
on the silken Itair of the child.
'Be 11 good boy, Tommy, and 'mother
will never scold you any more," she mur
mured gently 111 his ear.
His arms stole upwards, nnd as they .
were twined closely about her neck, press
ed his hps tightly Igtinst her cheek, thus
sealing his part of tlie contract with 11
kiss.
How sweet to the mother's tastC were'
those first iruits of selfrcontrol. In the
ctt'ort to govern herself, what a power she I
acquired. Instilling the tempest of passion
in her bosom, she had poured t lie oil of
peace ovei the stortn-lretted heurt9 of her
children.
July the first sruits wete there. In all
her alter days did thut mother strive with j
herself, ere she entered into a contest!
With the inherited evils of her children,
and just eo for she was able to overcome
evil in them. o.V-ii, vorr gfton, did sue
Fall back into old slates and often, very
Ol'ton, was self-resistance o.ily a slight 'el-j
fort, but the feeble influence for good that
flowid from h-r words ..r actions whenever
this was so, warned her ol her error, ai:d
pramped u more vigorous self-control.
Need if he slid, that she had an abundant (
reward!
"THE OLD FOLKS."
"I luppOSO I must go down and rre tHll
old folks pretty soon, it is dull job, said a
fashionably Uaf seduyrfung wmi to ,mo one 1
evening! "The cuuutry is so dull, after
living in the city, thut I dread to go there;
there is nothing to look nt, and no where
to go; but mother is getting pretty leeble
and 1 ought to go."
I perceived that the 'old fo!!:s" he so dis
respeefully spoke of, were no other than
his own tatiier snd mother.
"I could get along with one day 7o!l
enough," he said, "but tha old folks are
never satisfied unless I stay a Week, or.
three or lour di.ys, and I get heart-sick of I
it, it is so dull. 1 used to go and see them ;
oHce or twice 11 year, but now it is netween
two and three years since I have been
there I should go ofteuer, but it Is ' S) I
tedious; and then they make so much of
me, and cry when they see me, thut it
makes mo feel bad, because I do not go ns
much as I ought; so sometimes 1 think 1
Will not go at all."
How little had this cr.reles.s son thought
of his aged parents, and how daily, how
hourly had those aged parents tluuglit of
him, and how nnny fervent prayers had as
conded to God for hint Irom that quiet fire!
sole. He knew not how many evils thos'.
prayers had averted from his ungrateful

young friend of mine who has resiled rix

parents, and goes oton, or when iver it is

in lenlly saw a Istter he addressed to his
sis'er a short timo since, which shows that
11 young man can b" Iniinersod in extensive
Imslm snd yal find time to lova and
venerate bis mother.
"I received a short note from mother,"
he writes, a'ter hearing that she had been

votion that 1 should, 1 always felt that she
was supplicating for me. How much she
has cared for 11-! What a sacred treasure,
even to the end ot our lives, will bj the
memories of our mother."
"I see her now, as sho looked to me
when she stood by the bedside of our dying
brother vt)heerlng him in his sufl'ei ings; sod
I heard her ay, tho same clock that told

How ennobling, how to'.ichiii are this;

Wiss Delia Webster's Experience in
Kentucky.
1
Sftsi 1! lis A. Webster1 a teacher from;
Vermont, who, it will bo remembered, WSSl
sentenced to the Kentucky Penitentiary for'
two years from Lexington, a few y-ars since
on tho charge of aiding slaves to escape,
and was pardoned out by the Governor at
the end of six weeks writes a long letter,,
which is published in the If. Y. Independent.
it purports to give her experiences in Ken
tucky since she returned to the State t ie
second lime, S few months alter receiving
the Gubernatorial pardon. -She states that
she bought a large farm in Trimble county
on the river, opposite Madison, and settl d
down upon it; but, tha', from being sin-:
pected of still enticing staves to escape, j
she Was ordere I to leave the State, ami
When she refused to do so, was arrested,;
put In jiil. and treated with great cruelty.1
Subsequently, tha' esoaped to Indians, bull
was pursued there. We copy her own
Version ol the remainder of the story:
My pursuers had among them a man who,
from certain reasons of his own, was my'
personal en -my. By his ngency, immedi-j
utely alter this, through his intrigues three
old indictments, which the Commonwealth
Attorney had stricken from the docket ten
years ago, by order of the Court, were re
docket -J, and warrants issued under them!
for my arrest. Knowing that this might,
appear an Incredible thing In our country,!
I hold in my huttds perfect documentary j
evidence of the foot, which I sin aU ut j
uny tunc to exhibit. The Governor of Ken
tucky! n the strength of these indictments I
sent to the Governor of Indiana, damatid
ing me ns n Intuitive Irom ji,tiie. With
out uny inquiry us to the merits of the
case, the Governor delivered me up.
The Indlanians, Indignant nt such an
outrage upon s peaceable citizen, hid 111" 1
from my pursuers. Sometimes 'hey secret I
ed mo in the city and sometimes in the
country In n liay-ntow, in the woods, under
brush heaps, in the rye fields, In clefts ofj
rocks sometimes in one place nnd some
times in another, until I was too feeble to I
be longer moved about.
W.niie I lay prostrate with sickness, after
a ome twelve days senrab, tho officers got
truck of me, took me ell' from the bed, put
mo iu an op.'ti buggy nnd drove ma some
fifteen miles under a scorching July sun,
and alter dark mnde it daring Attempt to
smuggle mo across the river. Here again
they were defetttpd, and took me secretly j
to Madison, where they confined me In jail
to IWait the arrival of the Kentucky ufll
cers, Tho vigilant ndianians determined 1
should have the benefit ol a 'h ibess ourpus,'
and a large troop of Volunteer, stationed
themselves around the jail to prevent my
being kidnapped by the Kentuckhtns, nnd
there I lay 111 cldse jail twenty days bo
loro I was aide to be taken out for triil.
Tbfl evening prior to tho trial, too, naot'it-'
requisition arrived demanding mo upon an
other ten year old Indlctm nt.
On the evening of the 81st of July, tfij-ij
both warrants having bean tried, i was dis
charged front custody by lbs decision uf
Judge Wa;i;- r, of Madison, nd,

Under 'he guise of law my fioUtS is robBodl
of its entire contents, my farming utensils
are seized, tny grain, hay, etc., are taken
away, ccttle and other stock driven off, and I
I am dep ived of tny entiro personal pro-!
perty, even to my wardrobe. Nothing what-'
ever is left upon the place save tho grow-j
ing cr the property seised amounted to
9,000.
At the next Circuit Court tki.tr writ of

the duly of the nfflder to return the pro-j

Are they satisfied now! No. While on I

take advantage of my absence, steal and

The Benefits of Faith in the Doctor.
From Mackay's "Extraordinary Popular Delusions.
It was shout the !o-c of Ihe last con-
tury that Benjamin I). Perkins, American
surgeon practicing in London, announced jl
the sanative virtues of what hi called "Me'
la Ilia Tractors." They were a Couple Hi i
srnnll tapering pieces of metal one z'nr ' 1
and the other copper which t e practitioner : i
drew along ti re,-.ted pns-cs Rear theft
patient ufl'ccud with disease, giving out I
ihat lims the disease was somehow drawn 1 1
or magnetised away. For u tiuv persons 1 1
afflicted with gout, rheumatism, nnd other It
disorders, came in vast numbers to Mr.
Perkins to be healed. Ills tractors, for I
which lie had taken out a ptn. Wefe .
sold at rive guineas a pair. 'I'll" Society It
oi Friends, to which lie belonged, benevo-1 r
lently raised a hospital in which he mhrht 1 1
practice on the purr. At length Dr. Hay-' i
garth, of Bath, hit upon u method of ex- j i
posing the fallacy of the tractors. t
He suggested to Dr. Falconer that they
should make wooden tractors, paint them j c
to resemble the steel i ones, and see itlp
the very same off! Ctl would not be pro- ) r
duced. Five patients were- chosen
the hospital in Bath upon whom to oi,ra, '
Fo r of them safiosed from rheumatism in1
ihe ankle, k.iee. wrist, and hip, end the!
tilth had he n afflicted lor several montlSvU
with the ge.it. On the d y appointed roflr
tiie experiments Dr. Haygarth and his
iriends assembled at the hospital, and with
much solemnity brought forth th? fictitious
tractors. F or out of ihe five patients Said '
their pains wero Immediately relieved: and
three of them raid they were not only re
Ijeved, but very much benefited. One feltl:
his knee wanner, and said he could walk i '.
aer. ss the room. He tried ami succeeded j
although on tho previous day he h id not j '
bdeti able to i,tir. The gnffty man fe.t hlsT
pains diminish rapidly, uud was quite 0as,
lor nine hours, until lie went to bed when t J
tho twiething begin again. On the lot-1 :
lowing day the tractors were applied to ah j '
the patients, when they described thehrl.
symptoms in nearly the same terms.
"To make still more sitre, tho SXperi-l
ment was tried in the Bristol Infirmary, al:
few weeks afterwards, un a mMi who I: i t j
it rheumatic affection in the ahouider so
seven us to incapacitate him from lifting
his hand from his knee, fictitious tractors I '
were brought and applied to the afflicted I
part one of the physicians, to add solem- I.
nity to the scene, drawing u slop w atch j
from his pocket to calculate tho time ex- .
actly, whiie another, with u pen in bial.
band, sat down to write the change ofsym-L
ptoms from minute to minute as they ,
occurred. In less than lour minutes the
man toll so much relieved that he lifted
hia nnsd severs! inches without pain in j
the shouidor,"
There are cases iu which the medicine
