If a brother or sister be naked, and destitute of daily food, and one of you say unto them, Depart in peace, be ye warmed and filled; notwithstand ing ye give them not those thlnps which are need ful for the body, what doth it profitt James li, liSl-L. An old lady sat in her old arm-chair, With wrinkled visage and disheveled hair, And hunger worn features; For days and for weeks her only fare, As she sat there in her old arm-chair, Had beet potatoes. ' But now they were gone; of had or of good Not one was left for the old lady's food, Of those potatoes; And she sighed and said, "What shall I do? Where shall I send, and to whom shall I go For more potatoes?" And she thought of the deacon over the wav The deacon so ready to worship and pray, w hose cellar waa full of potatoes; And she said: "I will send for the deacon to come; I ne u not mina much to give me some Of such a store of potatoes." And the deacon came over aa fast as be could. l niniung to do the old lady some good, nut never for once of potatoes: He asked her at once what was her chief want, auu sue, poor soul, expecting a grant. Immediately answered, "Potatoes!" But the deacon's religion didnt lie that wav TT . - " iic was more accustomed to preach and to pray Than to give of bis hoarded potatoes: So, not hearing, of course, what the old lady said, e io pray wim uncoverod head, But she only thonght of potatoes. He prayed for patience, and wisdom, and erare. riui wnen ne prayed, ".Lord, give her peace;" one ancutiry sighed, "Give potatoes:" And at the end of each prayer wblcl he said, He heard, or thought he heard, la ita stead, i ne same request for potatoes. The deacon was troubled; knew not what to do: Twaa very embarrassing to hare her act so About those "carnal potatoes;" So, ending his prayer, he departed for home: But, as the door closed, he heard a keep groan, "U, give to the hungry potatoes!". And that groan followed him all the way home. in uie miosi oi me night it haunted bia room, give io the hungry potatoes!" He could bear it no longer; arose and dressed- From his well-filled cellar taking In haste A bag of his beet potatoes. Again he went to the widow's lone hut; .' Her sleepless eyes she yet had not shut; But there she sat In that old arm-chair. With the same wan features the same aad air: And, entering in, be poured on the floor " ' bushel or more from his goodly store Of his choice potatoes. The widow's heart leaped np for joy, Har face was haggard and wan no more; J.ow, said the deacon, "shall we pray?" Yes," aaid the widow, "now yon may:'. And he kneeled him down on the sanded floor, nere ne naa poured hie goodly store. And such a prayer the deacon prayed As never before his lips essayed; No longer embarrassed, but free and full. He poured out the voice of a liberal soul. And the widow responded aloud "Amen!" But said bo more of potatoes. Aud would yon, who hear this simple tale, Fray for the poor, and have praying "prevail," on preface your prayers with alms and good deeds; Search oat the poor, their waste and their needs, fray tor peace, and grace, and spiritual food. For wisdom, and guidance, for all these are good; tint don t forget the potatoes. i I PRAYER AND POTATOES. Miscellaneous Selections. A LAME CONCLUSION. T . - m i was on my way nome from a "Monday pop," or a Saturday after noon concert, when my heart waa dis solved, ana my footsteps were arrest by tne sight of a female in dis tress. She was young, she was at tractive in face and figure, and she stood irresolute in Portland-place, crying. If I had had time for reflection, I should certainly have passed on, with taking any notice, for to speak a ladv without an introduction is a very rash act To be convicted of doing such a thing, before a Lon- magistrate, would stain ones and, character very considerably, and et there is no knowing whatcourse hys- tena might dictate, and an active po- liceman adopt; it is impossible to be e- cautious. But I did not take time to reflect: I acted on the im-1 with pulse of the moment, and inquired, raising my hat, if I could be of any assistance. the her a of dy late have club, "Oh!" cried the young lady, "I have lost my aunt" "Tut tut!' I murmured, sympa thetically. 'iphe was to have met me at Re cirens, antl the omnibus man told to put me down on the right-hand side, where she said that would be." continued the voung lady. "I waited for nearly two hours, out ies, I come her?" -v at were then I I got frightened, and came up here, where it is quieter." And you do not know where your lives r "Somewhere lis a place' called iiapnam, not in ixmaon. sue was coming np expressly to meet me, and in her letter that she had so of ten met my cousins in the same place, by the half-past 3 o'clock om nibus, that we could not possibly miss." "May I ask where you have come from?' I enquired. "Calcutta!" replied she. "Good gracious !" said I, for I had on the point of recommending return. It was along omnibus ride to mention geographical difficul ties. "Oh, how stupid!" she added pres- ntly. "0 f course you mean to-day. have come from Acton to-day. I there from Southampton, and staid a week." "Had you not better go back to Acton?? "I should have done so already, if friends had been still there, but were to go away an hour after I started." Now, for fear you should deem damsel over-confiding, I must be egotistical, and draw my portrait. Know then, that I am classically thus icai.and the.factof my savage breast having been soothed is written on features. I wear my hair longer it is the fashion nowadays, and it well brushed off my interest brow; spectacles lend an air of respectable sedateness to my face. I soberly, and generally carry roll of music in my hand, because doing so once caused me to be point ed as a famous composer. And then the voung lady was so young, almost a child, and very ingenuous and inexperienc ed. She trusted me by instinct, which is not a bad guide-sometimes. "Andl have you no idea wheie aunt intended to take you when met?" I asked, presently. "O yes!" she replied; "to the rail way station." "Which?" "Are there more than one?" "Several. , Do you kaow where train was to go to?" find Irish the in you her you other street this. her who not the her had which In from and the it be I A I you to don't. but in road "Yes, to Dublin; and from Dublin we were going to Wicklow, where papa's regiment is." Here was a sudden clearing np of difficulties. I pointed out that she would probably find her aunt wait ing for her at Euston square, or at any rate, her best plan was to take the Irish mail at a quarter past 7. She had plenty of time, aa it was not more than 6 o'clock. Directly she began to see daylight through her troubles the damsel cheered up and told me that her lug gage had been sent on to the railway-station by carrier. Could I tell her how she was to get it? She looked up at me as she spoie with suchfbig, round, innocent truth ful eyes than I quite forsot all about the proprieties, called a cab, told the man to drive to iiuston square, put tne gin in ana followed. You may Diame as mucn as you please: I am certain that I was right; the position was a very exceptional. one. It is quite besides the mark to ask me whether I should have taken so much trouble if the child had been plain and .uninteresting, for under those circumstances she weuld not have had the same need of protect ion. ,.fctilJ, I confess that I felt ex tremely hot and uncomfortable, and did not dare let the conversation flag for a moment, lest she would be sud denly seized with a panic, or a sense ofawkwardness. However, it never seemed to occur to her that she did not know my name or character, and she chatted on quite easily and pleas antly about herself and belongings. aid not eaten an sue said, lor the four-wheeled nearly dislocated one's limbs, and sentences were unjointed, but from what I gathered it seemed that her father was a major in the in fantry, and her mother was with him at Wicklow; that she had four broth ers and three sisters, all very much younger than herself; that she alone had been with her parents in India; that these last had gone to the regi mental headquarters to arrange for accommodation of so large a family; and that there was to be a general meeting, now all was ready. At this point we reached the station. I was then very glad I had come, for everything was as strange and be wildering to her as you . might sup pose it would be to one who had im agined that London had but a single railway terminus. I found her bag gage, aifdsawitdulylabled; I help ed her search for her aunt, and made inquiries for that lady of all the avail able officials, but without result. Then I persuaided my charge to take some refreshments, and by that time the ticket window was opened. "O dear! she cried, turning dread fully pale. "I never thought of that; have no money." Aow it happened, for a wonder, that there was a crisp, new five- pound note in my pocket-book. What could I do but enlist it in the cause? theater at half-price I walked back to the west end, passing the top of the Haymar- my attention was arrested by certain words wnicn 1 iicard at tne entrance oi tne coacn ouice station- mere.

"Can't say, I'm sure, ma'am." "Was the young lady going by the mail?" I asked, pushing up to elderly lady, who seemed to be a state of great distress. "Yes, sir; Oh, yes!" and she turn ed to me eagerly. "Then I think I can tell you how missed her," said I. "You told to meet you at Regent circus, did not? Well she got out at the Regent Circus by Oxford while you waited lor her at But do not be alarmed; I saw off by the mail myself." As I suspected, this was the aunt had made the identical blun der suggested ; and I now had a sec ond distressed female on my hands, so interesting as the other, and coming at a more inconvenient sea son. The last joint would be out of room if I delayed long; so I gave as concise an account of what happened as possible, pleading business of the utmost importance, I really felt dinner to be, hur ried away like a cat from a school boy. a few pays I recived a letter Major Duckling acknowledg ing my great kindness to his daugh ter, hoping to have the pleasure of thanking me in person some day, inclosing the five pounds he ow ed me. I wrote back, saying that money had come safely, and that had been an honor and a bliss to of use to Miss Duckling, and that would certainly look in if I happen to be passing. year afterward some house prop erty was left me at Cobbleston, and had to go and look- after it. If happen to think of paying a vis it that spot take my advise and This sounds disinterested; the fact is that I have found a lunatic to purchase those four deso late .tenements, and I am free to con fess that they are situated in a Brit ish Sahara.

Shingle, indeed, is the prevail ing characteristic of Cobbleston. There are no cliffs or rocks; to right to left, in front there is nothing but shingle, wearing out the boots. When, after a terrible long tramp, every step ot wmcn tnreatens dislc cotion of the ankles, you at last get to the sad sea waves, you find them repeating nothing but "Sh-sh-shin-gle!" This barren desolation makes the place admirably adapted for rifle practice, which is, perhaps, the rea son why a depot battalion is station ed in isolated barracks in the neigh borhood. The recruits are kept out ef mischief, and they are taught to shoot You may see squads of them plunging about in the shifty soil at "judgin distance" drill; and if the Horse Guards or the war office, or whoever's business it is, does not provide them with plenty of boots free of charge, all I can say is, it's a crying sname.

But the peacock spreads its dazzling tail just as readily in the depths of the lonely forest as on the lordly tarrace; and he is right I do not suppose that an Adonis wants fascinate more than one at a time nis apparel and if that one is present what does the absence of the twenty thousand others matter? When the trio emerged from the barrack square the young lady stop ped short, looked hard at me, bowed and spoke eagerly to the old gen tleman in uniform, who" at once ad vanced toward me and held out his hand. "My daughter tells me that you are Mr. Tweedie, who so kindly cane to her assistance when she was lost in London," said he, and was very civil. So was Miss Duckling. The young fellow to whom I was in troduced tried to follow suit but failed. It was easy to see that he hated me. He was but an ingenious ensign, and had not yet learned how conceal his feelings. The cause his enmity, I need hardly say, was cordiality of the young lady's manner toward myself. "o you have leit Ireland," I un necessarily observed. "Yes; papa got his step, and wae in command of this depot" "By the by, colonel," said I, "what a depot? Stores, shades and de- poU have been mysteries to me from youth." The solidity of my ig norance excited a smile upon face of the ensign, but the old soliier sought to enlighten me. "Aaepou wen, you Know sev regiments have their depots at "I see," I falsely asserted. We had a pleasant walk to some butts which were being set up; on our return the colonel and daughter both declared that I must come and see Mrs. Duckling. I passed through the barrack gates with the rest feeling taller when the sentry presented arms. colonel took the ensign's arm, spoke to him aside; the poor youth nodded, and presently after asked me to dine at the mess evening. I am sure, from the character of his smile, that he feeding me to be punishing Christianity too far. Then he had to bow himself off, leaving me to enter the house of the beautiful Emma. Neither the beau Emma nor her mama could have good housewives, for the quar-, of the chief were in a terrible mess, and his little ones, who came swarming over us, were a sad con trast to the clean, tidy offsprings of non-com mihsioned officers that had noticed playing about. As the j'oungest Duckling, a tot pottered about dragging a fresh herring tied to a bit of string after t.a a toy, he was so sticky that I convinced a fly alighting on him would have been fined. The furniture was scanty and com and no attempt had been made set things off. We found Mrs. Duckling lying on a sofa reading a j novel. She had been a handsome woman in her time, there could be doubt of that and she had the part of beauty, a kind, feminine tempered expression left. She greeted me with much cordiality, evidently thought a great deal my having paid her daughter's "Civility I have met with myself, and over again," said she, "but pounds from an utter stranger never!" I liked her, she was so thoroughly untffected; they were poor, but she seemed to thiuk that rather a joke otherwise.

A letter from Havana gives an ac count af the steamer Virginius, from which it appears that on October 13th, the Spanish Consul at Kings ton advised the Governor at Santia go de Cuba that the Virginius was in the vicinity of Morrant Bay. The Spanish war steamer Tornado had that morning arrived at Santiago de Cuba, and after the Governor had received information of the Virginias went in search of her. The follow ing day the Tornado, under full sail and but little steam, owing to some slight repairs being made on her ma chinery, came in sight of the Vir ginius, which probably supposed the Tornado to" be a sailing vessel, as her course was not changed. On board the Tornado every effort was made to hasten the repairs they were engaged in, and at two o'clock the chief engineer announced them completed. All the steam posaible was immediately got up and the ves sel headed for the Virginius, soon reaching a speed of fourteen knots an hour, and slowly gaining npon her. The Virginius had, in the mean- nt divm- the Tor nado, changed it toward Jamaica, time, kept on her course, b ing the hostile intentions of and being out of coal commenced to burn petroleum, grease, fat and oth- combustibles, and from the provis-' ions on Doard such as ham3, etc. Night closed in and the vessels were in the same relative position, the Ton ado, however, gaining. Aa soon as they got within gunshot the Tornado fired a gun, followed by tnree others and & shell. " This brought the Virginius to. and two armed boats from the Tornado came alongside, took possession of the vessel, and made prisoners of aU onboard. At the time ofthecap- ture the Virginius was flying the American flag, but this was pulled down by a Spanish officer, and the Spanish ensign hoisted in its place. although the papers of the vessel du- ly dispatched for Colon were handed to him.

The vessels were surrounded in the bay by a number of boats filled with bands of music and cheering volua Mrs. teers, and the festivities were kept up late at night On the following day the second court martial was held on board the Tornado, which commenced at nine o'clock, and terminated at four. All were tried as pirates, and the find ings of the court and sentences were sent to the Captain General and ad miral in sealed packets. After the court had concluded its task, all of the prisoners, with the exception" of Benbet Jesus Del Sol, General Ryan and Pedro Cespedes, were transferred to the jail of the city, escorted by a lorce of 100 vol unteers and a number of marines. General Burriel, it is said, coolly asked that all the prisoners should turnea over to mm wita me ex ception of the captain and crew, who should be sent to Havana, at the dis poposal of Commandate General De Marinats, and declared that in twen hours afterwards all should tried and executed, in order to avoid any complications with the ex- terior foreign intervention. He al detained a telegram which the United States Consul desired to for- ward to the United States Consul at Kingston, reporting the capture and inquiring aa to the nationality of the Virginius. The Virginius had pa- pera in order, and was dispatched tor Colon, all passengers appearing the papers as laborers for a rail road building there. All accounts differ as to the position Of the Vir of ginius at the time of the capture. One gives the capture as having been effected twenty miles from Ja- maica, and an official account states twelve miles; Diarro states at twenty-three miles; the journals of San tiago de Cuba eight and twenty miles and the version of the Vose de Cuba twelve miles. The commander the Tornado publicly stated ia Santiago de Cuba that an hour later and the Virginius could have saved herself by entering some port of Ja- maica.
