"EUlor Brown, what will bo your contribution this year to the ctiuso of Foreign Missions ? I know, of. courso that it will bo liberal, but I do hope that you will increase, rather than diminish your last year's munificence. 'You see tho harvest is truly a great ono, and is already npo for tho sicklo, but tho la borera aro fow. Our mission in the South Sea Islands needs almost every thing, and that field is so interesting that I think wo ought to mako a special effort in its behalf. Wo must bear in mind that ''ho that givcth to tho poor, londcth to tho Lord," and truly in giv ing tho Gospel to theso poor South Sea Islanders wo aro lending to tho Lord, and ho will repay us four fold, even in this life." So said tho Rev. Dr. Churchman to his rich and influential Elder, one day just at tho commencement of nnivcrsary week. Elder Brown was rich. Ho was tho principle banker in tho thriving town of C , and owned a mill, a largo dis tillery, and several thousand acres ol choice farming land. Elder Brown was noted for his christian charity, too. He had, with unfailing regularity for twen ty years, set asido ono tenth of his an nual income for religious purposes. His donations to tho mission causo wove almost princely. Ho had also, out of his own privato funds, erected a fine church in C , for tho denomination to which ho belonged ; and had built al most alone, tho neat comfortable par sonago in which his pastor resided. Iri reply to tho Reverend gentle man's oppcal, Elder Brown said : "I have already sot ns'ulo ono thou sand dollars for tho Foreign Mission cause, and fivo hundred cacii for the Homo Mission and Tract Society. 1 have nvidc about thirty thousand dollars this year, and shall spend thrco thou sand of it for tho causo of God." 'Truly, God blcsscth tho cheerful giver," responded Mr. Churchman. Tho two gentlemen now scparutod, tho ono to pay oil' his small army of em ployees, tho other to make a few choice poetical selections with which to embel lish his next Sabbath'ti discourse. "Boys, horo comes that old curmud geon, Brown. I reckon ho's going to pay off now. I wondor if he'll want to reduce our wages again this week ?" So said ono of Elder Browns best hands, as ho saw tho rich banker ap proaching tho mill. Boforo any ono of the hands had tirao to reply, tho Eldor was within ear Bhot, and no reply was mado, although from tho smiles of ap probation which grecteu it, no ono was dilioscd to tako up the cudgel in his alf. ho men crowded around the pay-ta- to receive their money. "John Smith," called the Eldor. "Hero, sir." "You wero absent two hours, Thurs- a da ; my child got badly scald- I and I iiad to go for tho doctor," y rcsf ondod tho man. "Humph! always somo oxcuso ; but it wont to with mo. I shall deducts half dor's wages." 'ERI:. sir. T Infr. nt. font n'Mnpk. nr.d lyfono two hours," said Smith, as poor and sadly needed tho mon- ell, sir, if you don't like my way Ing business, sock employment Ire. If I wero to listen to all Emplaints, I would soon bo a beg- nd 'ho' that provideth uot for his own Household, is worso than an infi def"' )no by J no, tho men wero called up and paid (If. Elder Brown always kept the odd cent in chango, and found fre quent occasions to "dock" his hands for somo real or pretended short coming. He did not mako any further reduction in their wnges this week, but addod half an hour to their hours of labor, re plying to their protests ogainst tho im position, that thoy wero nt liberty to seek employment elsewhere, well know ing that it was at a Bcason of tho year when work could not bo readily procured. On going to his luxurious homo that night, tho Elder was appealed to by a poor widow, whoso husband had met an accidental death, whilo in his employ tho winter before, for charity, lie pull ed out a tract on "Tho operation of the Divino Spirit," and gave it to her, with tho advico that "she had better bo work ing instead of soliciting charity, and to go homo and read that tract, and pray God to enlighten her as to its import." Tho following day was tho Sabbath, and Elder Brown was early at chutch, where ho was observed to shed tears, as tho eloquent )r. Churchman expatiated on tho blessedness of christian charity coupled with nn appeal in behalf of the poor heathens. His subscription that day was, as ho had promised, a check for one thousand dollars in behalf of tho Foreign Mission cause, with tho proviso that it should go to aid in extending tho Gospel among tho South Sea Islanders. At the close of tho mission collection Dr. Churchman read a request from somo of tho members that aid bo exten ded to a poor brother who had met with an accident recently, and whoso family wero suffering by his being, in conse quent, unablo to work. A contribu tion was taken up (or their benefit, nnd tho Elder g.iyo Jive centu, which, how ever, ho wus fortunate enough to get back tho next day, by giving short weight to tho poor man's vifn, when with tho proceeds of tho collection, .she came to buy fifty pounJ3 of coarso flour to mako bread for her helpless husband and family. Tlio next number of tho Missionary Herald, contained n long letter from Dr. Churchman, in which ho bcisted of the large remittance ho was able to 'send to tho society, and a splondid culogitim on tho charitableness and christian char acter of "dear brother Brown." Monday morning Eldor Brown was seated in tho cosy president's office of tho bank looking over tho morning pa per- when a Mr. Kossling was announc ed by tlio cashior, as desiring an inter view with tho President. Mr. Kcssling kept a largo saloon and gambling houso in C , and according to repot t was making tnonoy rapidly, out of his nefarious business. He had often purchased liquor at the Elder's listillcry, and kept his bunk account at tho bank of which ho was president, so that tho saloon keeper and Elder wero by no moans strangers. Mr. Kcssling, after mooting n very cordial reception from tho Elder, an nounced his desiro to negotiate a loan of thirty thousand dollars, with which to build an elegant saloon and gam bling houso on a centrally located lot ho then owned, and which ho thought was rcmurkably well located for his bu siness, llo ofl'orod a largo rato of inter est, and a mortgago on his present sa loon, and also a dcod of trust on tho lot on which ho proposed building, with tho improvements that might bo put upon it as socurity. Tho rato of interest, and excollenco of tho security, ovcrcamo ea sily any conscionscious scruples tho El dor might havo entertoincd, and tho loan was at once mado. In duo courso of tirao tho now saloon was complotod, with an elegant suit of gambling rooms in tho stories abovo. Ju3t on tho day of its first occupancy, howovcr, it took firo and burned down, Eldor Brown found out on tho day fol- owing, that it had not beon insurod. Mr. Kcssling had invested all of his own moans as well as tho borrowed thir ty thousand in his now establishment, and by tho firo was mado penniless. In conscquoncc, tho Elder's security for tho loaned money was worthless. Just at this timo tho Jinancial panic of 1857 began, nnd swept over tho coun try liko a besom of destruction ; tho finest fortunes wero swept away like cobwebs, and mon who boasted of their thousands ono dav. became beggars tho next. Tho withdrawal and loss of thir ty thousand dollars from the capital of tho Elder's bank, mado it in a bad con dition to withstand tho coming storm. Tho Elder saw tho danger, and immedi ately flew to his own infalliblo scriptur al text for refuge "Ho that provideth not for his own household is worso than an infidel." Many of his depositors were laboring men, poor women, and chari table associations, for tho Elder's rcpu tation for Christian character and charity had socurcd him their cujtom. Out of theso deposits tlio Elder, very prudently, withdrew a cum sufficient to purcha3o nn elegant rcsidonco which was deeded to his wife, and ono or two lino business blocks, which gavo a fine incomo from their rent, which wero deeded to his minor children, and after putting a few thousand into a strong box nt his own house, suspended. Tho failure of Elder Brown was a sad blow 011 many of tho working pcoplo of 0 , whoso little all had been deposited in his vaults. Tho Elder still continued to perform tho duties of his oflico in the church, and to his creditors ho distributed tructs on "Benevolence," "Repentance," nud ' Sabbath Keeping," while his prayers in tho weekly prayer circle, were, if pos sible, louder and longer than ever be fore. Tho creditors finally accepted a compromise, and were ghd to obtain twcnty-fivo cents on tho dollar for their accounts. The settlements onco mado tho Elder ogain'resunicd business, ant: to tho day of his death, remained a bright and shining light in tho church Was ho a christian '! Ho was often pointed to as an exam ple of christian cliaructor by the lead ers of hi3 denomination, und set up 11s an evidence of the hollowncss of Chris tianity by tho thoughtless men of tho wot Id ; but was ho a christian ?.

Salt Lako Vodotto. Artemus Ward says Americans havo a pnRsion for oratory political oratory chiefly. Our nolitical orators never loso a chunco to "express thoir viows." Thoy will do it. You cannot stop them. Thero was an execution in Ohio ono day, and tho Sheriff, boforo placing tho rono round the murderer's neck, asked him if ho had any remarks to mako. "If ho hasn't" said a well known local orator, pushing his way rapidly through tho denso crowd to the gallows "if our ill-starred feller citi zen don't feel incliuou to mauo a speech, and is in no hurry, I should liko to avail mysoli ot tho prcsont oc casion to mako a few rcmaiks on the necessity of a now protective tariff." Parable A certain tyrant sent for ono of hjs subjects and said to him : "What is your employment?" Ho said "I am a Blacksmith." "Go homo and mako a chain of such a length." He went homo ; it occupied him several months, and ho had no wages all tho timo ho was making It. Then ho brought it to tho monarch and he sSiA "Go and mako it twico as long." llo brought it to him again, and tho monarch said "Go and mako it longer still." And when ho brought it up at last, tho monarch said, "Take it, and bind him hand and foot with it, and cast him into a furnaco." Theso wero tho wages for making tho chain. Hero is a meditation for you to-night, yo servants of tho devil. Your master, the devil, is tellingyouto mako a chain. Somo have been fifty years welding tho links of tho chain ; and ho says : "Go and make it still longer !" Next Sabbath you will open that shop of yours, and put another link on ; next Sabbnth you will bo drunk nnd put an other link ; next Monday you will do a dishonest notion ; and so you keep on making fresh links in this chain ; and when you havo lived twenty years moro tho devil will say "More links on still." And then, at last it will bo"Tuko hitrj, bind him hand and foot, nud cast him into a furnace of fire," "for tho wagos of sin is death." Thero is n subject for your meditation. I do not think it will bo sweet ; but if God makes it profitable, it will do you good, lou must havo Etrong medicine sometimes when tho disease is bad. God applies it to your hearts. Spurgcon. now Lowr, O Lord ? From the number of ridiculous prop ositions received from advertising agents in New York and elsewhero, wo apprehend that thoso fellows tako tho publishers ot country papers to bo a set of ninnies ; and from the persistent continuity of this stream of trash, thero must bo somo truth in their assumption. Almost every mail wo receivo a pocket- lull of advertisements, with notes at tached saying "wo may insert tho fore- 'oing if wo will 6cnd them a certain amount of money and take ono of their patent doublo-gcurcd i.litng-'em-lJobs as our recompense of reward !" .Now bo it known to Gotham, and the rest of mankind, that when wo advertiso for dealers, the Loot is on the other leg wo expect them to pay us for it. In ninety-nine cases out of a hundred, tho publishers who accept theso one-sided contracts get not one red cent for their trouble, whilo tho agent makes immenso fortunes off tho country press every year. It is about timo country publish ers should put a veto upon this stupen dous gougo gumo. If we allow oviselvcs to bo mado tools of to support theso vagabonds in their idleness,"they will continuo tn uso us for that purposo eter nally. Let country publishers awako to u proper sor.so of their dignity, and tlii 3 st,jlo of lampooning will cease. Wo throw those things into tho stove by hats- lull, nnd it all other country publishers would do tho samo thine for six months, advertisers, and their agents, would dis cover the necessity of paying us a fair prico for our work, instead of asking U3 to pay them for being allowed to work for them. Memphis (Mo.)Rov- ci llo. A real valley of death exists in Ja va, it is named tho Valley ot i'oison, and is filled to n considerable height with carbonic acid gas, which is exhaled from crevices in tho ground. If a man, or any animal enter it, ho cannot ro turn : and ho i3 not sonsiblo of his dan ger until ho feels himself sinking under tho poisonous influcnco of tho ntmos pliero which surrounds him, tho carbon ic acid of which it chiefly consists ris ing to tho height of eighteen foet from tho bottom of tho valley. Birds which fly into this atmosphere drop down dead ; and a living fowl, thrown into t, dies boforo it reaches tho bottom, which is strewed with tho carcasses of vaiious animals that havo perished in tho deleterious gas. There aro twenty millions of pcoplo n tho N01 th. If each ono of these would lostroy a fivo cent currency nolo daily, t would amount to a million ot dollars in a day towards tho removal of tho na tional dobt. If this wero dono every ilay for a yoar, it would diminish tho debt by three hundred and sixty-fivo millions of dollars yearly an amount greater than tho wholo internal rovonuo produces. Wouldn't it bo a good plan or overy man to burn a fivo cent bill every day ? In this way nil who desiro can help pay off tho national debt !
