Thlsaon had betm guilty Jtd" mar rying' a woman whoso parents belong ed to tho lower walk of society; and by ho doing had ineurrod tho extreme displeasure of his father. As time- pas nod on tho young man bogau to foel the keen bito of poverty; and, at length, applied to his father for assistance To ; all such applications tho indignant pa rent turned ft deaf car, determined to punMthini for his disobedience. The consequenco was that tho young man, not naturally vieious, becamo reckless and wild, associating with men of bad und depraved characters. h was tho very day proceeding tho evening on which our tury opens, that ho had again f.ppliod for aid, and had again been denied. Ilo was the subject of tho family conversation t.s they ni bosido tho grated flru-placo, in their pleasant parlor. Tho old gentlemen did nofcsco why hp couldn't go to work, und cam a living filo other honest men JIo had chosen his path and mustfol. low it. Littlo Laura, (for by this p t namoidio va very often do.signatcd,) iotcrtcded in his behalf, und hoped ho would yet do well. On tho other hai.d Emellcc, inflated beyond imagination with prido, condemned him without stint for bringing their family into tmch hopcles dicgraco. That night tho dwolliugj and nf.ro of Mr. Weatlak) were coQsumod by firo, aN bo two other hulldiig bolonging to him io tho vicinity of Union bquaro. Tu comploto thia id moot total wreck, it was jsccrtaincd that tho iron aat'o which stod In his counting room had been Opened before tho aturo warf burned, ' andia.ro than lill y thousand dol arn, which had but recently boon drawn iron. Iho bank, extracted therefrom. Suspicions at oncu pointed lo hi son, nnd vtfortH wero mudo by tho polico for his arrest, but without success. Ilo hud iiictitly laid his plana üeep ana car- cTYiapm out well. small cottago in fseirtrvTVuiated on a pice ot Jnnd thtl which hohadonco taken for debt; and, although tho deed, was consumed by firo. it had been proviously recorded so. of couiso, ho still retained possession. Hither he and his daughters repaired lo wait, In tho hopo that nornu duo might be obtained of tho whereabouts of Iiis son, and part of his money re.-tcrod. And now commenced a life which brought out tho peculiar characteristic diflVrcnccs ot tho dispositions ol the two joung ladies In moro distinct con traiety. On Laura devolved not only tho (aro, but tho discharge alsoot noar lyull tho household duties; for tho beg i;arod aristocrat could not now afford to koop a retinuo ot servants; and 1Z.no lino's prido still kept her ubovo such plebhin condueensioii. Mr. Wosthiko, hiinsolf, disheartcr.ed by his ill-fortune, had not tho courago to venturo out up. on tho busy stago of lifo and action aain, but iat liatlcssly about, hoping every day to bo ro-iustuted in his wealth, Ono day an old man way-worn and weary with tho .toil of many years, and returning, as ho alleged, from tho lUex ieuti wars, covered with scars, btopped at their door In tho solt twilight of an autum evening, and begged permission to remain with them tiil morning. Miss Emelino at once oljjctod, saying that there were others in tho neighbor hood I'Ctterablo to keep him than they were; but Laura joined him in i.'z en treaties, and won her father's consent that he might remain for thatono night. And well did tho old soldier repay for Ids entertainment, by many a story ol the field of battle, lie was in tho vig or of lif', ho said, when about three years before ho had set out for Mexico, itllhouLcl. then upwards of iilty; but a fvv years scrvieo had worn him out, and now ho had eomo back a homeless wanderer, to die, perhaps, unknown among tranger.

'Not one living that I know. I had a son, a darling boy; but ho left his home vcars uiro, to beck his fortune, us he said, and I havo never reen him since.

Miss JJinelino groaned at Ihc pronncct: but as it seemed tho dcereo of fato. she could not chango tho aspect of affairs a particle. - And now the idea of ndverti zing for Mr. CampbJl, tlie youngjrwu seriously roconmaerd, lor if it should turn out that ho possessed any fortune, t miirjit. relievo ihcm of an expense which they could not well nil'.rd under tlieir present circumstances. Accord ingly uii ndvcrtizemciit Foon appeared in ecvoral of tlio M. Y.

An unavoidable engagement j)reonted his immediate appoaranec, but i i two or threo days at furthest he would b.1 at their house Humph,' exclaimed Lmclino. 'anoth er pauper coining hero to tako up hi i-csmeiico; wo nuijiii us Well mako our houso a poor-house at on o. As for mo I am going to undo Abbingtou's until tho vagabond two gone, niid pray do not uiaiurumo until you uro rul ot them. Accordingly alio took her departure. and in a few days tlx) young Mr. Camp bell arrivod. .''f hero certainly wnsnoid. mg or tho pauper or vagabond about his appearance. A better dressed or moro nobler uppeuring young man was not among tiiuJiatot their acquaintance In his language a well n$ tlress and nn. pouranco hoahowed his superiority; nnd in a abort lime th,o fact was established beyond a doubt that tho old war-faring soldier was his falber. Still h'o could not loavo their, as tho old man wus too unwell to think of removal yet. In tho eouraoof conversation tho for. mcr circumstances of Mr. Wcstlakc woro mentioneil. and Mr. Campbell, lu nlor, then recollected aocing him before und nkcd it ho did not call to mind a certain tiny when ho called at a law-of-fico in N'ow York for ndvico on u partic ular point. Mr. Wcstlako rcmombered it well. And I, eir was tho man on whom you called., O ! then, you aro a Now York law ycr Yes, sir, and J can perhaps givo oa so tno information that will bo valuable to you. I think you said you thonght your son abstraclod tho money from tho safo at tho timo your sloro aud house wcro burned. , I had no doubt of It, sir And yet you wcro mistaken. The real robber has keen apprehended, and a considerable amount of tho money recovered.' Is it possible ?' frasnod the Joyful old man. and sinking down in his seat oyer- eomo with tho too wolcomo intelligence, gavo way to tears. 'Thcro was an insurance, too," Jir. Campbell continued, as soon as Mr. . a a. la. Wcstlako repressed a iittio n:s iconng; an insurance on tho property that was burned which ho could easily get; nnd if Mr. Wcstlako would permit him ho would conduct tho business profession- t 1 1 V . and would consider it as n part discharging tho debt of gmtiludo for tho kindness towards Iiis lather, una their indefatigable efforts as ho was pleased to term it, 'in nuvonismg tor him, and restoring to Lira his dear old father.' Mr. Westlalfo did not hesitato a mo mcnt but witn a childish confidence travo into his possession all tho netcessa- ry papers wnieu uo nau . i cacuwu .win tho flames, and all other necessary in- structions for tho recovery of his prop erty. It is roily to suppose mat two young persons of tho temperament and dispo sitions of tho younger Mr. Campbell and Miss Laura WestUko ahould spend anv length of limo under tho same roof joining in conversation us they often did, without forming an ugrecaoio opin ion of ono another, to. say tho least; and when it was announced that Mr. Camp bell wa about to return to Xew York, to commence legal proceedings for tho recovery of her father's pro erty, tho elder Mr. Campboll becoming now, in a measure convalescent, there wero many sorrowful as well tu joyful feelings that thrillod through tho bosom of Ltura. - Cut why such unhappy feelings? Was iio not fur ttbovo them, now. in station ? What folly thou to entertain any othor . . . . t ... ...i... ....... i i feeling tlian re poet tor nun, whj wwuiu never eondscond to notice her except in a passing conversation. I Jut such was not tho fact. Mr. Campbell had won enough of Mi'. WauiI,.! nn'.iL'ini n warmer foulil. r than that of mere cjdiomeral regard, and when ho again returned to their humble cottage io too hi father, and to report legal progross, this feeling was easily changed to something of a more dis-tiiiCtivo nature), öufiieo it to bay that ho felt sullicient eonüdenco in his knowledge of her character and tlispo sition, from what he had soon of her to warrant him in soliciting her hand iu marriage. ho reooivod tho o.Tor with evident i ' . . . i .. ..

JU'l "ajij in m niinr odgo of being loved by the ono, of nil other, whom her heart had chosen, I io vi 1 leit tin assent, and arrangements were n. r -cd upon for the coming event. Nor had Emelino lost anything by ab senting herself; for so strongly marked were tho peculiar unhappy dip isitions of her character, that they Would only have served to show her Mdter'a loveli ness in more brilliant contrast. Timo passed by und Mr. Wcstlakc wa onco again ro-instated in his bui. ness, though with only a portion of his former wealth; but himself, a much bet ler and wiser man. Ho had learned tho bitter lesson of experience, tho les son that poverty alono can teach, that gold should nut bo tho only end and aim of life that sonio moments of our brief existatvo should be devoted !o oth er pursuits. Ilo had learned to know the situation of his son, and to pardon him. even had ho iu tho midst of great temptations, taken nvy Iiis treasures and burned his houses; and when, one day, they wero speaking about this ab sentscn, his boy Albert, iho cider Canip b II (darted tit i lie namo, und asked if he had not a light complexion, a bear over tho left eye, (by au accident when a boy, as it afterward appeared) aud if ho wcro not ot a lively, almost reckless dis position. This wu a truo description of him. . 'Then I lenow him. Ilo was my comrade, and returned with mo to Hal limoro where ho hired to work for daily wages.' This conversation took placo before they had left tho cottage; bat now Mr. Wcstlako was in a stalely residency iu New York, and Mr. Campbell was liv ing with his son Harry in Brooklyn. A letter had been despatched to Albert, and when, two months later, Mr. Har ry Campbell, who was cverv day gain ing new laurula in his profession, was to marry Mis La'ira Wcstlako, tho prodi gal sou anil brother returned. Albert was accompanied by his wife, a nohlo looking woman, who hud sup ported herself by her needlo whilo her liusband was 'oil' to tho wars;' nr.d a happier f'.ttiiity (w'nh tho obtinato ex ception of Mi Encline) you would seldom eo In Now York wr any other city. It is ttill supposed that, tiJthough young Albert did not tako the old gen tie man' money, ho, novcrthcle, thro' spito, set tiro to his house; but as his father generously forgavo him from the very bottom of his heart, and never montlonod tho alTair, wo soo no reason why wo should not do tho sumo thing. Do wo ? ' H.MWaaMMBaaaaiaBBi tQr It is said that u bachelor grows old faster than a married man, but that tho latter's hair very often comos out soonest.

Dr. Franklin In his autobiography, tells a story of a man who went one duy to buy an ax, nnd having bought one, ho expressed a wish that it had boon bright instead of black; on which the smith, who mado the axo, replied: , , 'Oh, If you turn tho grindstone wo'll soon make it bright.' No sooner said than dono, and tboy went to work, but presently tho , purchaser felt tired, for tbo smith prosscJ o hoavily on tho stono, tho labor of turning mado him sweat, und ho wanted to l.uvo off. 'Koep on, keep on,' ropliod tho smith, 'it isn t bright yet, it'a only -speckled.' 'Well, never mind,' answered tlio buycr1 think I liko a spudded axo boat.' In this iucl lent wo Jiavo an example On Ü small scale, .lof which takes place all ovor tho world on a largo scale. And it struck mo ono day, as I wan thinking abqut it, that tho demand for speckled axes is ono that is always active; though pooplo could no moro grow tired of hav ing theso useful instruments than they can of eating broad. It was very curi ous, I thought that speckled should bo preferred to perfect brightness. Wh 1 I was cogl fating tin roupon, it camo Into my mind that perhaps, otne good might bo dono by setting down a few instancos of buyers having boon content to Ua the Inferior article, when, by proper caro and judgmcnt,thoy might havo tho best. And hero is thu list. When I oo a man striving from mere vanity to mako n name, and fancying that ho is mado of different material than his fellow creatures, and that he does thorn a favor by living among them, and who does not caro by what means ho rises, so that ho docs rise; thou, .. say ho likes a speckled axo best. Whenevor I see a mm in business in tent only on making money, as though thut wero tho only thing worth living for, and not carrying what wrong may bo carried on in ins establishment, nor how his customers may bo irlckod.so ho makes a profit, then, I say ho likes a speckled axo best. vVhcnovcr I see a young man in want of a wife, choosing a partner for lifo merely boeauso slio has u pretty face, (lances well, or sings n nico song, or plays nimbly upon the piano, and never I nul i in tt1irhIai tilitt Still, fkt . i ! aliitt .aa at." ft i I f i liwtuvi nuw vail siilHU t k wi roast a leg of mutton, or whether s!io is ono to mako a homo hapjy, thon I say ho likes u speckle 1 axo bo?!.

A QtTAiNT ADV't:unsKMr.Nr. The Mo thanie's Freo Pros, of November Sth. 1823. (a copy of which has been given to us by it friend) contain tho following advertisement, which It says it copied f.om a .ato Dayton (Ohio) papor. It spom that greater fitducemonto was hold out tobaehulor thirty y.oars ago, to en ter Into tho bonds of matrimony, than aro proscntod iu this pngroc3.uvo age: "Takk Novice!

S3T An old gentleman says that hols tho last man in tho world that would tyrannizo ovor ft daughter's affections. So long as she marries tho mun of his choice, he don't oare whom she loves The 'Dutch' Girl. Wo havo lately got into tho posses sion of some facts relativo to u most thrilling incident, which conclusively demonstrates that beauty and worth, unadorned, uro far moro valuablo than all the tinseled drapery of earth. ' Not over ten miles from Washington, on ono of thoso gently undulating farms that look so pleasant whon covered with tho verdure of Juno, is a pretty coun try ro.sidcneo, whore a retired trader aud his lady live, with thoir only son, in tho enjoyment of wealth and easo. As wo aro not permitted, of ccur90, to namo the parties, we will call tho gen tleman Mr. Landen. "Among tho 'helps' in tho houso was a German girl who possessed romarkublo beauty. There was an air of superiority in her man ner and address; but the Maudens were somewhat a proud people, and always treated her, like many folks otten do hired girls, with distant hauteur: One pleasant day last summer tho old lady and gentleman had gone to visit a frimid some miles distant, but Frahlc, being busy at nomething, did not accompany thorn. Soon after tho carriago was gone, Frank heard tho eound ot music, dotnowhat astonished, ho stolo into thu house, nnd poeped silently into tho sitting-room. Tharo sat Mary (as wo will call her) with tho guitar, which she playod with u skill almost artistic. Af ter executing a brilliant piece, sho gli ded iu to a sweet F.ench uir, and then, with a rich voice, full of pathos, sung ono of tho chunsonettCM of 13orangor. The youth was entranced, and when sho concluded, ho could not forbear uu exclamation of ßurpriso and admira tion. Tho girl turnod hastily, wheu sho saw tho young man nt tho door, whom she thought was out with his pa rents; she turned pale with dismay, tot tered a few steps, and fell fainting on the sofa. Frank ran to her aid, but was iu a condition not much more rational; ho had something of tho family prido, and was of u shy, retiring disposition. Imagine tho blushing, confused young man, supporting will his arm tha form of a lovely girl in a fainting fill frank had never before f.dt tho power ot'boau ty, but ho was now ovorwholtned, und, Dell.ro sprinkling somo drops of water . a ' a ... on ner taeo, lie tooic a nasty, trembling, heaitating kiss. That kiss was fatal. Mary recovered from tho swoon but Frank could not cseapo the effects of the kiss; stu ly, amuemont, everything was at a stand; he seemed to bo walking in n droam, and buried jn restless thought. Ilo would havo treated tho girl with somo attention, but not it vtrd not a look could ho' win from her; she pursued her oecuparions with her nsnal Idiligonco, and fu .J.i if tu f; f r .k..-v i .i. waüft.'i.s, tlopt i.a i t i i t Cloud Upon. . retiring, U bo-1 die told, iho' servant who conducted him 'to his room that l Vimted his boot blacked , ,Tho Servant told him tj set than ai silo tho door and the boot, black would tend to them..

As a mar. of generous heart from tho country was guiding, a few du' since, his load of hay to tho the market, wo saw following him, -and gathering the wisps of hay which foil from tho load, a poor woman and two lads, the latter of perhaps the ages soven and niro. Our attention wus especially drawn to them, by observing that tho man took pains to throw whole handfula of hay down tho side of tho load, In order, ns was quito apparent, to convey, in ' as quiet a manner as possible, sentiments of comfort to tho hearts of these suffer ing poor. , Ah our walk lay in tho di rection of the market, wo determined to witness tho conclusion of this exhi bition of sympathy nnd generosity. By and by, tho gleaning becamo so abundant thut tho poor, woman could not refrain from her expressions of grat itude no longer, and bursting Into tears she beckoned tho man to stop, and then, in a manner which indicated both intel ligence and ft dolicate scnio of her wretched condition, besought him to permit her a singlo word of thankful ness for his kindness. 'Madam,' said tho man, 'I, too, havo been in tho vulo of poverty, aud scon . the timo whon a lock of hay would have been consider ed ft treasure. A friend, by an act of kindness, of less value in itself than the ono I have dono to you. saved me from dispair, and tnado mo hopeful for better days. . . .
