Like an apple, ripe and mellow,
Not too young and not too old ;
Half inviting, half repulsive,
Now advancing and now shy ;
There is mischief in her dimple,
There is danger in her eye.
Shs lifts studied human nature ;
i She is schooled iu all her arts ;
She has taken her diploma.

Will her handsome face become ;

"Show me how n young man Fpenda j
! nit* money" said a wise good merchant/
"and I Wlii D'll You at once his future'
There is much truth in this; and un
{incident of real life is now preseut in my
memory which may help 4, puint the mor- j
al" therein contained.
Oliver Hudson and Albert Ryder were i
of the same age ; both were reared iu the ;
same town; they had equal advantage*
in all social and moral points; and the 1
1 most acute observer of huiuau nature i
could not have told which had the best
mind, They were as near alike us two
j youths could be; and even their parent* j
j occupied social and pecuniary positions
of the same d gree. They were good
i honest boys, and generally respected and;
At t he age of fifteen, these two boys came;
to the great city. Their parents had ob-i
tained good places for them, and blight j
hopes lighted up their paths. Oliver
iludsou was placed in the store ot a nier- j
' chant named Klisha Kushtou, aud Al
bert Ryder took a position exactly cor-!
responding in the stoie of Hugh Buxton.
Both the merchants were wealthy; both
honorable men ; and both engaged in the
same kind of business.
A year passed away, and at the end of
that time the boys had become pretty)
thoroughly acquainted with city life and 1
city manners ; and both had formed a hab
it of spending their ereuiugs either in the I
streets, or at some place ot amusement.
: Their companions did so, and they fol
lowed the example.
One evening they were both present
at a party given hy a friend, and they!
both partook rather freely ot wine. On
the following iuoruing, Oliver Hudson
awoke with a severe head ache, and with :
aw -begone feeling pervading his whole
frame. It was his first debauch. lie (
had frequently taken a glass of wine be
., fore, aud thought it no harm; though he
knew his mother would be very unhappy
were she to know it.
Ou the present occasion, Oliver felt
badlv. The idea that he had committed
: a heinous crime was not with him ; but
he knew that he had done wrong. It
was the first touch of the barbed point in
his soul. Innocent in intent, the result
'of his siu was heavy upon him, Could
i he have continued on iu the same course,;
i the next morning's sorrow would uot have)
been so deep—the next lighter still—un
til, by and by, familiarity with tho feel,
iug would have blunted it to the soul,
fittjid it could be laughed oil over a gla.<-;
- of "plain soda."
1 : But this was the first fall, ftud th
youth was startled. The events of the
previous night were dim and indistinct in
ids memory after ten o'clock. lie had
been intoxicated ! lie had beeu in so
cial companionship with those who were
not good men. lie bowed his head aud
1 ( thought of his mother.
' Angelic presence! God surely sent
' thee iu this all-important hour J
| There game a tap upon his door, and
' the servant ifi * It was
f; from his mother! H twenty
" dollars in bank-notes, wUH JttF pouncil
and love. She wrote him all fh*
and finally closed her }estCf fhqs :
'J "An'l now, BIT own dear koy, me to

night I nut upou mv asking God to bles? ;'
and guide you. When you her the clock j 1
strike nine iu the evening, you may feel that i
you can join your prayers with mine, for then
*m I praying for my first-born—uiy well be- I
io d sou. Remember your mother, and you '
cannot go astray. Oh ! you will not allow
another !o u-:urp tny pl.tct in your confidence. |
You will not forget the promise you gave me !
when you were pure and virtuous. That prom-)
! is - , well kept, must ever keep you as you were :
then. >

T kiwwyour pay is not sufficient to •upplv you !

manly character; and combine sound intul- 5
: leet with pleasure in your matter for reading, ji
1 know that in the daytime your business ,
j keeps your mind occupied. It is that your
! ewniwjt may be morally and profitably spent
| that your mother most earnestly prays."
The angel came at the right moment, j
Oliver read these two paragraphs over u
, second time, and then fell to weeping.—
He knew that he was to his mother as
| the apple of her eye —as the very joy- 1
| fount of her soul. Had he done as he j
' promised her he would do ? Had he ;
j done as his own good souse told him he I
; should have doue ? No. He knew that
; beyond the bound of right, the single step
jis wrong. IB folded the letter carefully
i up and put it away, and then pressvd his j
hands upon his brow. He stood so a few :
moments, and finally he turned his eyes
"MOTHER," he said, in a deep heart
sent tone, "I will betray thy confidence
wver ay aat ! "
Albert Ryder awoke on that same
morning with a head-ache too. But,
alas ! he had an evil adviser with him.
"One gl:i*g of brandy, Ah, and you'll
be all right! "
So A!b*''t took the glass of brandy, and
under its stimuhtiLig influence he felt
physically better.
On the next evening Albert came
around to llushton's store and asked Oli
ver to go to the theatre with him. But
Oliver *aid he had an engagement he
could not br^ak.
And so, evening after evening, Albert
came after his friend—Bow for the thea
tre —now for a stroll up Broadway- —now
for a whist party —or mayhap, fur a game
of billiards, —and always it was the same
answer. 4, 1 am engaged."
44 L00k ye, Oliver," cried Albert, as be
came oue evening for his friend to go and
see a new circus company, "what do you
inean ? Aiut there a female in the ques
tion r"
"Yes, Albert, —I must acknowledge
that there is." !
"Aha—l've found you, have I? A fe
male eh ? Oh. Oliver, i didn't think that
of you. But who is she? Come—out
with it: Who is she ?
",1/y Mother , Albert!
"Eh ? vour mother?" repeated the gid
dv vouth, with a sudden softness of tone.
1 didn't know she was iu the city."
"Nor is she, Al. But her uoble prayer
| ful love is with me; and my sacred prom
ise is with her 1"
"But you used to go with uu, 01.; you
were not thus a month ago."
'•Because 1 did not realize how surely
[ was falling away from my promise,"
replied Oliver, promptly. "You reiuem
i her the last evening we spent together,
'tin the next morning I had a headache."
"So did 1, 01.; but I soon got over it."
44 And so did I get over mine—and over
my heart-ache, too. I saw then, Albert,
that I was not safe while spending my
evenings abroad. I saw how I was de
parting from the precepts of one who lives
only for the good of her children. No,'
Albert —1 cannot go with you any more.
1 have looked at the matter in all its
bearings, aud 1 kuow there is no safety
fur us in spending our evenings abroad.
The influences are all bad. In this groat
city the good and pure influences of life
are confined to the home circle, and cer
tain social assemblies of good people. —
iTbey are not to be found iu the streets,;
'and much less are they found in those
saloons which we have sometimes visited.
. No. Let us break from them. Come to
'my room. My mother has sent me inou
ey, and 1 have bought some valuable
books. Come to my room, and we'll read'
them to each other. Come."
"No, no, Oliver —not now. Come you
with me. Come this once."
"Ah— dhis once' is a dangerous step,
Al. One step from the edge of a preci
, pice is death ! One step from the path of
Bight is Wrong'. No, —if you will come
with me, we will pass our evenings to
gether. Think, Albert, before you make
up vour mind. You know your mother
loves you as well as my mother loves me;

"You misunderstand me, Albert. I

"Pooh! That's the time when I want

"No—l crmnot "
"Well, then I must find somebody

"If I/Sntf I tuu wrong, 1 most certainly'

ion turned away.
The two youths Lad supposed that

this. They had stood by the door of the
counting room, and Mr. Rushton was;

Author ot the 44 Autobiography
of a Female Slave* 44
Mattie Griffiths is an lira that has
grown up and was not among those chil
dren of whom Mrs. Stowe says in Uncle
Tom's Cabin, 44 they have always their
names on gravestones,'' early gathered.
to the angels because they
astray. Mattie was born among slave
holders, and never till a year ago was
acquainted with any one who did not
defend slaveholding. She has a sister,
a person of exceeding beauty —indeed,
they look like two flowers —aud they!
have no fortune but negroes, who have j
been hired out, and upon whose wages'
they have always lived. Her mother
died before she can remember, and her
lather then married a Louisiana lady,
owner of a large plantation —and died
there. His little girls were left at their
grandfather's in Kentucky. lie was a
kind-hearted old gentleman, whose con
science, however, never told him that
he had no right to live oil the labor of
slaves. Mattie, like ull southern chil
dren, had a negro nurse whom she call
ed 44 mammy," and whom she loved as
Eva loved her nurse. One day when
she was but five years old, she was stand
ing on the banks of the Ohio, aud saw
coming up the river, mammy aud her
children, weeping aud wringing their
hands as if iu the extremity of anguish.
She ran to enquire the cause, and found
that mammy's husband, who belonged to
another plantatiou, had been sold to go
to New Orleans.. When she heard that
44 Uncle Dick" was sold, she did not re
alize all the horrible consequences so
much dreaded by the negroes, of being
sold "down South," but her quick
' heart realized that mammy and her chil
dren were in distress, and that 44 I nele
Dick" had no chances of ever seeing
them again. She saw now, that the
■ cruelty and injustice of it were perfect
ly elear to her then. She entered into
their sorrow with such interest that she
begau to shriek, too, wheu mammy
i took her in her arms aud tried to soothe
: her, aud give her a piece of candy, but
| thi* love for her and forgetfulness of
; self only made her cry more frantically
i and bitterly. i>he was carried home,
! and in the "midst of her pyreaming sor
row she protested it teas not right.—
Her Grandfather, aunts aud uucles tried
t to pacify her. and told her he uas only
a nigger, and even said Uncle Dick was
a bad man, but this only exasperated
| her grief and anger. At last they
sent for the doctor to calm her, fearing
she might seriously injure herself by
auch fantic grief. She cried herself to
sleep that, night—but ever after she was
the friend and companion of the slave.
The whole plantation knew htr and
how she felt. Happily, her grandfather
was, as I said, kind-hearted, and always
left unfulfilled his daily threatenings of
punishment, but the neighborhood wus
lull of attrocious occurrences of bodily
cruelty. At home the cruelty did new
break bones, but it broke hearts and
souls. Mattie did not realize this dis
tinction in her childhood, but the slaves
in the neighborhood knowing her sym
, pathy, would show her their marked aud
I mangled bodies, and she would secretly
carry them grease to ease their smarting
wounds. She would also go to their
owners and pour out her childish indig
nation, and for this impoliteness, was
punished at home hy Rer own relatives.
It wafi all in vaio, however; they could
not shut her mouth, and it never was
closed until she found it made the slaves
far worse. When for this reason, she
surpressed all expression of her misery,
her health began to fail, aud her friends
i seut her and her sister to a convent to
, he educated and out of the way of slaves.
They thought she would take a different
view of the matter when older. The
first volume of " Uncle Tom's Cabin,"
was put into her hands, and then she de
termined to write a book, for she felt as
if she knew far more of the subject than
| Mrs. Stowe. She belonged to the larg
j est slaveholding elan of Kentucky,
j stretching into Virginia and Maryland,
and after she left the convent, visited all
around to see for herself. Everywhere
; she found slavery intolerable, attrocious
| and wholly contrary to the light of divine
; love that shone in her soul. She wrote
her book in secret, without an erasure
I in her manuscript—hut what should she
do with it? By a strange accident, Mr.
• Sumner's Kansas-Nebraska speech fell
in her way. She wrote to him that she
was a young girl with six slaves, whom
she wished to emancipate, and that she
; had written a book. Could he tell her
what to do next ? He told her to go
I North and print the book, which she did,
and the publishing of it has, of course,
| made her an exile from her State and
) family. Iler sister's husband aband
oned her when there were no longer
i slaves to be sold for his pleasure,
land because she sympathised with her
-lister. But they are brave. Arrange
ments have been made by which she can
learn SI, OOO this year, and this has en
abled her to emancipate her slaves. —
I They have no fears of finding employ
; ment, but any aid in the sale of the book
will of course help them. And she un
■ dertakes to support, not only herself, but
her sister and three children. Can you
! not do something to spread the knowl
edge of her book and create a demand
for it ? If she could afford to spread it
abroad in newspaper? and magazines, it
would earn her a reputation which might
help to the object of supporting this little
family of which she feels all the respon
sibility. —Free Presbyterian.
