WALTER GRAY'S MEANS-; "Can't afford it Maria." "But you might if you would only think so, Walter." plead the young wife. "I can't do it," the husband returned, very emphatically. . "It would cost two or three dollars at the very lowest, to put up such a gate, and the old bars will answer every purpose." "No, they won't, Walter. The neigh bors' children very often leave the bars down, and then stray cattle come into the garden. We may lose more than the price of the gate in a half hour, if a cow should happen to come in wnen J. am away." . .' "I should like to know who leaves the bitrs down," replied Walter, very threat eningly. "The same children might leave a gate open." "Bui we can have a gate made to olose of its own accord, with a weight or a spring," suggested the wife. "John Nilea has had a gate put up in his yard." "But I ain't John Niles, my dear," Waltr wished his wife to remember. , "But his family is as large as, yours, and his weges are not so high." ' "Never mind about that; 1 tell you X can't afford it at any rale not at present." And with this, Walter started off for his work. Walter Gray was a young man, about thirty, an indusirious mechanic; had been married 6ome eight years, and had an in teresting family., tie meant to provide well for those who depended upon him, and in a measure he did so. But there were many little comforts of which he felt obliged to deprive them comforts which at times they really needed, and which, m the end, inight have proved a source of saving. And mure, loo; it mignt nave added to. his own happiness, bad he been able to grant these little requests. But he couldn't afford it ai least, so he thought; and whether he thought so with sound judgment, the sequel will show. ' ... The gate winch his witenad been so anx ious to have put up was needed at the en trance to the garden, at the back of the house, where there was only a short pair of bars. The children often came through there, and sometimes left the way open behind them. - In short, there were many ways in which those bars were apt to be left down, and Maria Gray bad very often to leave ber work to drive out the cattle that got in,,". It was only by extreme watchfulness on her part the garden was preserved. She had spoken several times to ber husband about it, but he felt that he could not afford it. She must keep her eyes upon the spot and see that the bars were kept shut. , , . , ' J Onlv a few davs after this. Mrs. Gray asked her husband if he was going to hire a pew in 'he church for the following year, and he told ber that he did not think he should. . . '. '.: .i. "But you can hire half of one. We can hive half of Mr. Nile's pew for five dollars." ; . "I can't afford it," was Walter's reply. "I should get no great good from meet ings, anyway." .. . "Don't sav so. husband. Suppose eve rybody should, feel like that. You cer tainly would not wish to live, and bring! up your.' children where there -vas no re- j ligious influence; ana it you reap tbe bene fit of good Christian institutions, you cer tainly ought to feel willing to support them." "So I would be willing, if I could af ford it, but I can't." Mrs. Gray looked . very serious, and seemed to hesitate, as though there was a subject on her mind which she felt delicate about broaching, but it occupied her thoughts so long she determined to let it Ottt.". . ,: , .. .... ... ,, . "Walter," sbe said, a little tremulously, but still resolutely, "you have ten dollars a week." ' ' ; - "Yes." -V---' "And how much of that does it take to feed -us.".: . . , "I don't know, I'm sure. I only know that it takes all to feed and clothe us, and pay up the interest on the house." "X havn t had a new dress since last fall; and was reckoning up yesterday how much we had spent for the children, and I found it to be only fifteen dollars for the last ten months. I have worked over some of cousin John's clothes for Charles, and Lu- J cinda jumps into Mary's dresses as the latter outgrows them." . ' , "That's all yert well." replied Walter, a little testily. "I understand my own 1 business, and I know just what I can sf-1 ford, and what I can't .While I hare the payments to make on my houe I must economise1- must tcutwmtie," h repeat ed, very decidedly' ' "And 1 would have you economize. returned the wife; '.'but do not forget that ..:,.; o H 15..,.. "I. S(! , i . all is not economy Which many call so. I think that to biro, half of John Nile's pew would be a source pf economy in comfort and lasting, good.' 1'It would be five dollars laid out to good advantage sure to return a heavy interest to its and our children.;. And I think it might be a sourqa of great saving, to put up a good gate at the back" "StODl" interrupted Walter, with a nervous motion. "You've said enough about this.' I know my means.".-,(; , ... "Let me say one word," urged Maria. There was an . earnestness ; in her, tone which caused her husband to stop and Iia- ten. ' "If yott will give me five, dollars a weerl will agree to furnish all the provis ions fcj?.thittOU81dR and children.. I will do this for one year. That "vill .leave you three hundred and sixty dollars with which to clothe your self and make your payment on the house. On the house you have only to pay a hun dred dollars with interest for two years, which will leave you a hundred and forty- eight dollars for your clothes and other expenses, Walter was upon the point of denying this result of the case, but he saw upon a moment's reflection, that, from his wife's statement, the deduction was correct. "Youoannbt furnish food,' and clothe yourself and children, for the sum you have named," he said. Thereupon Maria sat down and made known a few facta to him that had been hidden within the mysteries of her own house-keeping. She was notjong in prov ing to him that during the past year, the items of expenditure within said limits had not averaged five dollars per, week, Wal ter said. "Pooh!" and then he added; "Nonsense!" and then he left the house. "There must be some mistake," he said to himself, after he got away from the house; and he really believed there was a mistake. , ;. . ... "Have a glass of sods, Bill! Come Tom, have a glass?" "Don't care if I do," said Tom and Bin : " "Have some, Ned?" ' And Ned said yes. So the clerk pre pared four glasses of soda, for which Wal ter Grey paid twenty-five cents. "Let's have a game of 'seven up' for the oysters," said Bill, after the day's work was done. The game was played, and Walter lost, so he paid a dollar for four oyster sup pers suppers which none of them needed, and which did them more hurt tbaii good. "Have a cigar, Walter?" sail Tom.'-; Wither said you, ami ia rolurn paid fur four glasses of ale. One evening they met, and Ned pro posed to play for the chowder. "Come John, won't you come in?" he said addressing John Niles, who stood by. "No, guess not," was John's reply. "You'd better; it's only for the chow derfor five if you come in." . "i can t." "It's ho Use to ask him," spoke Walter in a rather sarcastic tone. "He don't spend his money in that way." "John's face flushed, and his lips trem bled, but he restrained the biting words which were struggling upon his tongue, and he turned and left the shop. He s a meaD tallow," said Tom, loud enough for Niles to hear. "Tight as the bark to a tree, added Walter, in a rone equally loud. John Niles heard the remarks, but he did not come back. v The four remaining men "tossed up," and the lot fell upon Walter, who paid four shillings for the chowder. Walter started for home about nine o'clock, and on his way he was overtaken by Niles.':.' ; :!; , i;(. "Walter," said the latter, in a kind but earnest tone, "I want to speak with you. lou haye wronged me this evening, and I wish you to understand me. For the opinions of Bill Smith and Ned Francis I care not, but I do not wish you to misap prehend me. We live too near together, and 1 would not lose your good opiuion." "Well, go ahead," returned Walter, who was one of the best and kindest neigh bors in the world. "You said I was mean." "No, no, 'twas not I who said that.'? . "Well, you said I was as 'tight as the bark of a tree.' " Walter could not deny this 80 John proceeded. Ml refused to join you in your little game, tor tbree reasons, either one of which should have been sufficient to deter me. First, 1 have resolved not to engage in any such games of hazard. ' Second, I did not want any chowder. And third, I could; not have afforded to pay for five ex tra suppers, if the lot had fallen upon me." "Couldn't have afforded it!" repeated Walter, with a light tingle of unbelief in his tone."' " 1 "' '' ' "No," returned the other, "I could not! I used to be on hand, always, for any such game, and I thought it would be mean to refuse, but I have learned better. Let me tell you how I first came to see the folly of being afraid to refuse spendidg my money for nothing; Shall I tell you?" "Certainly," returned Walter, who al ready began to see something. ; , , -; "Well,' pursued Niles, "one noon,!; I was leaving home, my wife asked me for a dollar. She wanted it to buy some cloth with.1 ' I asked her if she could get along without it.! ; I had only three dollars with me, and 1 hated to let one of them fo. bhe said she really needed the cloth, ut if I had uot 'got any money to Bpare, Bne couia get along, and l went away. xnai evening i went into the saloon, and we Dad a bne social time.

" 'Wait,' urged m wife, as the child sobbed in her' disappointment.- Papa hasn't got the money now) but he'll have someby-and-by, and you shall have a pretty dress., Poor papa has to work bard.'" '. . '-?:. -. .'The word smote mtf to thd" neart.'

There's an animal in your garden, Walter." They had reached the garden fence, and bv the dim starlight Walter could see a horned beast trampling among his sweet corn. The bars had either been left down or hooked down, and a stray cow had got in. They drove her out, and then Niles went home. Walter saw the beast had done considerable damage, but he was not angry, for he had something more to think of. He vent and set down beneath an apple tree and pondered. "Bless me, if he hasn't put the case down about square!" he said to himself at the end of some minutes of meditation. "Let me see,".- he pursued "there's sixty-seven cents for chowder ulty cents for ale fifty for soda. And that within the last three day. A dollar and sixty seven cental Is it possible? Over a hundred dollars a year! Aud yet I can't afford two dollars for a gate, nor five dol lars that my family may have religious in struction for a year. Walter Gray you had better turn over a new leaf!" And Walter Gray did turn over a new leaf. On the very next day he did two things, thereby astonishing two parties He had a new gate made for the entrance to the garden, and thereby astonished his wife; and he refused to "toss up" for the ale, and theieby astonished a crowd of ex pectant thirsty ones, tor a month he pursued this course, and by the expira tion of that time, he could fully appre ciate the new 'btesstiigs Xbt"arj dawn ing upon him. He discovered that he could afford everything which the comfort of bis lamily demanded; and arriving at ihis result he had only cut loose from things which he really could not afford. It was a wonder to him how he could have been so foolish. When, at the end of the year, he had paid his note, and had ninety-two dollars loft, befell at first as though there must be some mis take; but when his wife went over their household expenditures with him, and showed him thai all they needed had been bought and paid for, he saw just how it was. He saw that for years he bad been wasting his substance and depriving him self and loved ones of the comforts they needed not intentionally, but through the strange mistake that leads thousands in the same course. But be did so no more. Sometimes, even now, Walter Gray says "Can't afford it," and says it very emphatically, too. Bui it is not when his wife or children ak for comfort and joy, nor when the needy poor ask for help aud charity for he can well afford all that; but it is When the wild speculation,1 or the loose companion asks him to engage in some game of hazard which may rob him self and family of their substance. Then he says and he repeats it if need be "CAN'T AFFORD IT!" ' . ' Got the Best el Illm. : The elder Judge fiurnside presided in one of the courts of Pennsylvania when tbe memorable case of Parson vs. Parsons was on trial. James Petriken, Esq., was one of the counsel, assisted by James T. Hale, Esq. Hale was speaking, and having made a strong point, which the court chal lenged, he said he could sustain it by cita tion of cases from the books, but he , had left them at fais office close by. "Why did you not bring your books here?" asked the judge. - "Became I considered the points so plain as not to need the support of other cases, but I will Step over and get the books." ' As Mr. Hale left the house, the Judge, in a pet, said: f - "That man reminds me of a carpenter who came to work for me, and left all his tools at home. This court has forgotten more law than that young man knows." 1 "That," said Mr. Petriken, "is just what we complain of that your honor hat forgotten too mack.'" - , ... a - k. iThe Houstan (Texas) "Telegraph"' states that the stage drivers and passengers on the last trip from Velasco, picked up on the beach several cakes of beeswax, which are supposed to be portions of a cargo of beeswax that formed tbe loading ol a ves sel rvhich foundered in tbe Gulf of Mexico in 1833, and was designed for the use of the churohes. in Mexiao. .

As she bends over the empty cradle, and fancy brings her sweet infant before her, a ray of divine light is on the cherub faoe. It is her son still, but with the seal of immortality on his brow. She feels that heaven was the only atmosphere where her precious flower could unfold without spot or blemish, and she would not recall the lost. But the anniversary of his departure seems to bring his spir itual presence near her. She indulges in the tender grief which soothes, like an opiate in pain, all hard passages and care in life. The world to her is no longer filled with human love and hope in future, so glorious with heavenly love and joy; she has treasures of happiness which the worldly, unuhastened heart never con ceived. The bright, fresh flowers, with which she has decorated her room, the apartment where the infant died, are me mentoes of the far brighter hopes now dawning on her day-dream. She thinks of the glory and beauty of the New Jerusalem, where the little foot never finds a thorn among the flowers, to render a shoe neces sary. Nor will a pillow be wanted for the dear head reposing on the breast ot a kind Savior. And she knows that her infant is there in the world of eternal bliss. She has marked one passage in that book, to her emphatically the word of life, now lying closed on the toilet table, which she daily reads: "Suffer little children to come unto me, for of such is the kingdom of heaven." The Conjurer and the Yankee. Anderson, the wizzard, met with a Yan kee who stole a march on him one day, after the following pattern: Enter Yankee. "I say! are you Professor Anderson?" Yes ftir, at your service." "Well, you are a tarnation smart man, and I am somethin' at a trick too, kinder cute, don ye know." - "Ah, indeed, what tricks are you up to?" asked the rrolessor amused at tbe simple fellow. "Wa'al I can take a red cent aud change it into a ten dollar gold piece." "Ah, that is a mere slight of hand trick, I can do that too." "No you can't. I'd like to see you tn." "Well, hold out your hand with a cent m it." . , . . Yankee stretches out his paw with acent lying m it. "This is your cent is it, sure?" "It's nothiu' else." "Hold on to it tight Presto! change. Now open your haud.'' , Yankee opened his fist, and there was a gold eagle lying in his palm. r "Wa'al you did do it. I declare; much obliged to you," and Jonathan turned to go out. "Say," said the professor, "you may leave my ten dollars." "Yours? wasn't it my cent and didn't you turn it into this yaller thing, eh? good by!" . And as he left the room he was heard to say, "I guess there ain't anything green about this child!" Going to Hold Over.

A cleigyman, who en joys the substanli.tl benefits of a fine farm, was slightly taken down, a few days ago by bis Irish ploughman, who was bitting at his plow, in a tobacco field resting his horse. The reverend gentleman, being a great economist, said with a serious, look: , "Patrick, wouldn't it be as well for you to have a stub scythe here and be hub bingji few bushes along the fence while the horse is resting?" . Patrick, with quite as serious a coun tenance as hisclergical boss, replied: " "Faix an' yer jist about right, yer honor; an' sure wouldn't it be as well to have a tub ov praties in t.he pulpit, an' when they're singing, to peel 'era awhile to be ready for the pot, yer honor?" , ' ( The reverend gentleman was ' rather taken aback by this bright sally of Pat's, and left with a hearty laugh. ..-.. ; -i IffA. ship captain who has just ar rived at Hull from tlii Black Sea,' sys that between Sevastopol and Balaklava, the country presents a most devastated appearance, diversified only by the mound raised here and there over some iHiieu warrior.

WHOLK NUMBER 800 Old Virginia. . An Illinois Sucker took a great dislike to a foolish oung Virginian who was a fellow passenger with him on one of the Mississippi steamboats. , Tha Virginian "' was continually combing his hair, brush- . ing his clothes, or dustiug his boots to all of which movements the Sucker took exceptions, as being what hetermed "a leetle too darned nice, by half." He fi nally drew up his chair beside the. Virgin i m and began , . t "Whar might you bo from, stranger?" "I am from Virginia, sir," politely an swered the gent. "' ' ; ; "From old Yirgmny. I suppose?" says jh.Sucker,!,,r v,. ; ?i. -j. .J7CHfV.f14 Virginia," was the reply., v , "You are pooty high up in the pioturs, thar; I suppose?" "I don't know what you mean by that remark, sir.". . "Oh, nuthin," says the Sucker, "but that you are desp'rate rich, and have been brought up right nice." "If the information will gratify you, in any way," says the gent, patronizingly, smoothing down bis bair, "I belqng to one of ihe first families." "Oh, in course," answered the Sucker. "Well, stranger, bein' as you belong to the furst, I'll just give you two of the fattest shoat8 in all Illinois ef you'll only find me a feller that belongs to one of the second Virginia families." "You want to quarrel with me, sir," says the Virginian. - . "No, stranger, not an awra," answered the Sucker, "but I never seed one of the second family, and I'd gin suthin' to git a sight at one of 'em, I know you are one . of the furst, cause you look just like John Randolph." This modified tbe Virginian the hint of a resemblance to the statesman was flattering to bis feelings, and he accord- . ingly acknowledged relationship to the orator. "Ha, you know, descended from the Ingin gal, Pocahontas?', "You are right, sir," he answered. "Well, stranger," said tbe Sucker, "do you know thar is auuther queer thing al lays puzzles me, and it's this I never seed a Virginian that didn't claim to be either descended from an Ingin, John Randolph, or a nigger." , We need not add that the Sucker rolled off his chair suddenly! They were sepa rated until the Sucker got ofl at a landing near his home. As he stepped ashore, ho caught sight of the Virginian on the up per deck, and hailed him at once with: "1 say, old Virginny, remember two fat shoals for the first feller you find that belongs to the second Virginia family." Tub Opinion of America on a Vital Subject! Show an American any inven tion, from a political constitution to a pat- ent rat-trap, and his first impulse will be , to search for its defects; his next, to im prove upon it If, however, he finds it perfect capable of performing all that is claimed for it--invaluable, unimprovable he "acknowledges the corn," adopts the artiole, whatever it may be; and renders due honor to the inventor. This trait in our national character is signally illustra ted in the bouudless popularity of Pro fosssor Holloway's remedies in this coun try. When they were first advertised in the United States, half the world had al- ' ready approved them. The leading gov ernments of Europe, publio institutions, and eminent soientifio men had endorsed them.' But these credentials were not suf ficient for "Brother Jonathan," He must try them in the crucible of experiment. The results were in the highest degree sat isfactory. Dyspepsia, bilious complaints, affections of the bowels, all the painful and dangerous varieties of internal disease dis appeared, invariably, under the operation of the Pills ; while external disorders, and the effects of external injuries, were rapid ly and uniformly removed by the applica tion of the Ointment. This was demons tration. The national mind was convinced. Enthusiasm replaced doubt. We presume that the establishment in -New York of a central depot for the sale of his remedies in the United States, has beeu the means of adding very considerably to his princely fortune; but if it has been a pecuniary' benefit to him, it has been, a benefit which money cannot measure to thousands of our suffering fellow-citizens. The Ointment and Pills are now accessi ble to people of every class, in every part of the Union, and the amount of good they have accomplished may be estimated from the fact, that almost without exception, the newspapers and other periodicals have . published statements of cures effected by their operation, and back the statements by editorial declarations of their authentic ity. This is a mass of evidence not to bs . controverted or shaken. It is a rock of truth against which the waves of profes sional prejudice beat in vain. 2f, Y, Courier. First Dead-hkad.
