And I bear not the fall or footstep Around me save God's and my own ; And the hush of my heart la aa boly As hovers where Angels bare flown! Long ago I was weary of voices Whose music my heart could not win; Long ao, I was weary of noises That fretted my aoul with their din; I Long ago 1 was weary of places Where I met but the Human and Sin. : walked thro' the world with the worldly; I crave what the world never gave; And I said: "In the world, each Ideal, That shinea like a s.ir on life's wave, i la tossed on the shores of the Real And sleeps like a dream in a grave. ' ' Aud still did I pine for tiie Perfect, And sill found the False with the True; I aooght 'mid the Human for Heaven But I caught a mere glimpse of its Blue; And I wept when the clouds or the Mortal Veiled even that glimpse from my view (And I toiled on, heart-tired of the Human; And I moaned 'mid the mazes of men; Till I knelt long ago at the Altar And heard a Voice call me since then I walk down the Valley of Silence That lies far b-youd mortal ken. Do you ask what I found in the Valley? TU my Trysting-Piace with the Divine; And I fell at the feet of the Holy And above me a Voice said: "lie Mine;" And then rose from the depths of my spirit An echo "My heart shall be Thine."

' And I have son Thoughts in the Valley . Ah! me! now my spirit was stirred! And they wear holy veils on their faces ; Their footsteps can scarcely be heard; They pass through the Valley like Virgins, Too pure for the touch of a word. Do you ask roe the place of the Valley, Ye hearts that are harrowed by care? It lieth far away between mountains Aud God and His Angels are there; And one is the dark mount of Sorrow, Aud oue the bright mountain of Prayer. "VFI10 STOLE TUE M0.VLV." A STORY OF CIRCUMSTAXCIAL EVI DENCE. I have learned in the course of ray legal experience, that circumstancial evidence alone, is a dangerous theory upon which to base conviction in criminal causes. I have known seve ral cases in which .the innocent have bceu grossly wronged through this moans; a very plausible iuatauoa, I remember, being in substance as fol lows : A pale, scared boy, some fourteen years old, was brought into the Mu nicipal Court, in a neighboring city, one morning, evidently in great trib ulation, who was upon a charge of theft in his employer's store. "What's your name?" asked the Judc quietly. "Johnnv Biggs," said the boy hum bly. . "Where do you live?" "Down 't North End, sir." "Now, Mr. Clerk, what is this case?" said the Judge, with some in terest. "The old story, your Honor," re plied the Clerk, rather familiarly. "Thieving. He's stolen a pocket- book, and won't give any account of it." "Where are the witnesses?" "Here, your Honor. The loser of the moncv and the boy's late employ er." "Has he no counsel no friends in court ?" "I havn't seen any, your Honor; and he don't look as if he were over burdened in that way," replied the Clerk sarcastically. "Proceed with the evidence." The child's employer took the stand first, and stated the case. He was a well-dressed man, but had hard fea turesa worldly-minded, selfish ap pearing person aud thus testified: "A stranger came into my store, your Honor, to make a purchase. He paitl me thirty dollars, ordered his goods sent home, and went out; but returned in a short time for his pocket-book, which he missed directly, and was certain he had left it on the counter carelessly. This boy, Johnny yonder, had been with me but a few weeks, aud I noticed that he hurried away out of the shop immediately, and 1 did not sec him for three days afterward. There was nobody in the store at the time but Johnny and me. The money was gone, autl I didn't steal it. lie has been able to give no account of it, or rathor refused to do BO,aud there can be no doubt he is the thief. I took him out of the street and set him to work out of charity, aud this is the- return ho makes me. He was a poor vagrant, and has deceived me." "Is that all?" "Yes, your llooor." The owner of the lost money then stated that the merchant's testimony was correct, lie had lost sevctity dollers in the manner described that he saw no one in the store but this boy and his master, and tho lad had disappeared on his immediate return to tho store, upon discovering his loss. He was very positive he bad not taken his wallot with him, but re membered just where he had left it upon tho counter, near where this Johnny was engaged putting up tho goods. He had no shadow of doubt that ha had purloined it, aud got away with itduringhis brief absence; for he had not been seen about bis business for three days afterward by anybody, and he noticed that the boy seemed uneasy aud restless during his stay there.! lie could not afford to lose this money, mud thought that such young rogues should be made an example of. "Now, boy," said the Judge, "have you anything to say? You have heard the testimony of your former employer, and this person who has lost his money, and the case is very much against you. Do yon. wish to say anything, or explain eh?" The little fellow was so much alarmed at the apparent severity of his IT oner, though he was a just man and a good Judge, and tlid not intend to intimidate the culprit at all, as I knew from a long acquaintance with his grave but sterling character the boy was so confused that he said: "No, sir, I can't." i "It is a hard case," said his Honor, "that is getting lamentably common among us, and we mut do our duty, in the endeavor to check the growth of this evil. Mr. Clerk, I shallv com mit this boy to the House of Correc tion for one year." " . --. And the Judge arose to adjourn court. "May it please your Honor," I said respectfully, "will you allow me, be fore this sentence is officially record ed, to address the Court briefly?" "Certainly, Mr. S ," replied his Honor, pleasantly. "Do you know anything of this case?" "No, your Honor. I have never seen any of these parties until this hour. But this lad doesn't look.like a thief, to my Vision, aud he has no friend to say a word for him here. 1 have listened to the testimony, and, with the utmost deference to your Honor's judgment in the case. I re spectfully suggest that the evidence against the boy, though very plausi ble and connected, is but circumstan tial." "Very damagingly so!" suggested the Court civily. "I admit that, your Honor," I frankly siid. "And thongh it is hardly within the rule of Courts, at this late stage of the business, I pray the Court to allow me, on this trem bling, frightcued boy's behalf, to ask the last witness in this case, a few brief questions." "Certainly, there is no objection, sir." And I had the loser of the money upon the stand again directly. "Yon sav you missed your pock et-book after leaving the 6tore?" I in quired. "Yes sir with seventy dollars in it." "You are sure you didn't take it out, when you went?" "No, sir, I did not. "You might have done so?" "But I didn't, sir." "You couldu't have dropped it, then, in your hurry as you went?" "I didn't have it, I left it on the counter, near where this boy was en gaged in putting up goods. And I have no question that lie took it." "You came back how soon?" "WUlii- aW minutoi.." - "And the boy was gone?" -"Yes, sir, aud the pocket-book," added the witness, sharply. "That's all, 6ir," I remarked. And the gentleman sat down. I had not made much progress as yet, but I next asked the lad to stand up; I spoke to him kindly and said: "Johnny, why did you hurry out that night as soon as the gentleman left, as he said you did?" "Cause mother was dreadful sick," he said tearfully, "and me snd my little brother Neddy was all't she had to take care of her. And I went straight home nnd didn't know noth- iu' about no money of that man's, no wav." "You went home because your mother was sick. How long was she ill. "A good while, sir." "But why didn't you return to vour work? "Why were you absent three days jut then?" "Mother's dead sir," said the boy sadly. "When did she die?" "That night. And I staid away 'cause I had to go to her funeral with Neddy, and he is all alone now, sir." "And you know nothing of this lost pocket-book?" "1 never have seen it in all my life, sir; and I don't stenl nothing, never; for my poor mother allers said I must be honest, ef I starved; and God would know it ef nobody else found it out; and 'at wicked boys go to the bad place, sir. I never stole nothin' sir never!" And here the little boy burst into tears, and could say no more. "While I confess it I was wiping my own eyes briefly, I observed that his Honor was actually busily en gaged in the same occupation. But the court was close, and it was a warm day. Perhaps it was prcspira- tion. "Your Honor," I said after a mo ment's silence nud clearing of the throat, "tho prosecution have surely no case for conviction. I don't be lieve this boy knows any more of this lost money than you or I do. it has not been found in his possession; he has had no chance to spend it; nobody testifies that he ever had it, save on suspicion; autl I cannot tlniiK your Honor will imprison this child who has so touchingly though innocently explained himself upon what is, at the moot, circumstantial evidence. "He says he is pareutless, and I think vour Honor will not doubt this assertion. The dead mother whose form he has just seen laid under the sod, was plainly a good, true woman; and Johnny has not been taught at home to be a thief, evidently. I crave the leniency of the Court in this lad's behalf, and I ask that Johnny may be discharged since there is no direct evidence here against him." - "You can go, Johnny," said the Clerk, with unusual pleasantness for him, a moment afterwards, as the Judge said something briefly to his subordinate, and immediately ad journed the court, to tho evident sat isfaction of the noor boy's accuser. . 1 shook tho little fellow's hand, took him out of the court room with me, told him who I was, at his own roquaat, and saw him running down street as fast a fits little legs could carry bins, soon after this reversed decision of hit Honor. , The result of my voluntary effort in this little affair was very gratify ins Mukllwmm JANUARY lO, 1872. to me, for I felt assured the boy was innocent. But the most disagreeable part of this "case" was yet in reserve forme. About a month afterward, a poorly dressed lad entered mv law office one cold, raw morning, cap in band, whom I recognized as Johnny, who said: , "Good raoruin', Mr. S . You was Jiiud euough to help me out in the court t'other day, sir." "Yes," I said: "I remember you. Come to the fire, Johnuy.'l "Thank von, sir. It's pooty cool, sir." "Very. 'Where's your overcoat?" "A what, sir?" "Your coat outside jacket." "Bless you, sir, I ha'u't got none. But f dotrt-imrnd It. Pm used to it, sir. I onlv come to thank you. sir an' to say that it's all right about the pocket-book. The man's found it!" "Where? How?" I asked, with deep interest. "Well, I did it up, in my hurry to get off that night, in oue of his big bundles that ho bought. He didn't find it for a week, cos he didn't open the parcel at home 'at it worked into somehow. I don't know how. But he weut and told my old master about it who turned me off, you know, for stcaliu' it, when I didn't know noth in' about it and one o' the shop boys told me about it yesterday." I congratulated the lad, and then induced him to give me his history. He was now an orphan; was an in telligent but uneducated boy,onc who His goed mother's counsels aud teachings had had a salutary effect upon his mind, and an influence which was lasting, I conceived. Lie was out of wark, and wanted employment. I recommended him to a neighbor, aud secured him a good place subsequently. He was always very grateful to me for the service 1 had so accidentally rendered him in court, and he proved to be a thoroughly honest and good servant in the years that followed that little incident. This event is oue which confirms me iu my opinion that it is unsafe to convict upon circumstantial evidence only however strong that evidence raav be. EXCELLENT INTEREST RILES.

We were sitting with Horace one after noon in that little disreputable sanc tum of his adjoining the counting room of the Tribune The old gen tleman was in one of his chronic con ditions of grumble aud disconteut. lie had that meally appearance so common to him, that made him re semble a blonde miller, fresh from the dust of his flour mill, aud was expressing his private opinion iu a public and profane way, when a col ored gentleman was announced. "Let him come in!" roared the philoso pher, and an aged darkey, clad in broadcloth, gold-rimmcd spectacles, and a cane headed with the same precious metal, stalked iu. "Mr. Greeley I believe?" he inquir ed. "Yes, I'm Mister Greeley; what do you waul?" was the gruff rcponse. "Well, sab," said old Ebony Specs, seating himself as he deposited his hat and cane on the floor, "well, sah, I've been thinking dat our race don't pay enough attention to scien tific pursuits, sah." "We saw the cloud gather on the in tellectual brow of the great journal isiic Bohemian. It broke into thun der at that point. Iu a voice wherein was blended the shrill tones of a hys icrical woman ana me growl of a tiger, he exclaimed: "Scientific pursuits ! you damned old fool; yon want a hoo handle and a patch of New Jersey that's the scientific pursuit you want. Get out." It is scarcely ncccssarr to say that the devotee to science gathered up his ornaments and disappeared, walk ing out in a daze, not being able to comprehend that he had encountered Bohemia iu a rage. A Chicago lover went to visit hi girl oue evening recently, but for some reason, possibly that the fire had materially changed his condition in life, she received and treated him coolly. He remained standing in the parlor a few moments, but finally made a movement toward tho door, remarking that "he iruessed he'd go." "Oh!" said she, starting from a beau tiful condition of semi-unconscious ness, "Won't you take a chair?.' "Well, I don't eare if I do," was his reply; aud he took the chair, thank ing her kindly and, and carried it home. He says it is a good chair, made of walnut, with stuffing, and green cover just what ha wauted, But he is down-on that girl,, and do elares he wouldn't , narrv .her not u her rawer ownod a brewery. FOIL THE LIMES ABOUT ' DRESS. Consult suitability of occasion, and whare any doubt of the style of dress exists, avoid,ove'rdresing. A little ftolt on the other side is preferable totits, as a lady may be more sim ply costumed than those around her, and appear to greater advantage than if she is more showy, in her apparel and ornaments than her companions. Carefully select iu shoppipg the best material you can afford to purchase, rather than the most showy. A dress made of good fabric, if it is only fa domestic giugham, villsurely be more serviceable than any showy but worthless fabric made lor mere effect. ... J In dressing for a pic-uic, water party croquet meeting, or nny out door gathering, select an attire that will wash. It is well to be provided with a water-proof cloak and hood, easily carried, and even if a little troublesome while the sun shines, invaluable if a shower suddenly attacks the pleasure party. Avoid glaring contrast?, in color, material or va ue. A real la.-e shawl will look as badly over a cheap lawn dress as a rich silk will under a conrso linen wrap. Keep in scrupulous order your glove-, boot?, and fine linens or luces. There is no surer proof o( a slattern than to see holes in the gloves, soiled collars or cufls, or ill-fitting shabby boots. If your income will not allow kid gloves aud lace collars, wear cotton gloves and linen collars; but let them fit nicely, and be always in exquisitely nice order. Be sure a neat . linen colar will more surely mark the lady, than a torn or soiled one of expensive lace. Iu the selection of stockings exam ine the heels. These arc generally thin and poor when tho hosiery is of an inferior quality. German and English hosiery, especially the latter, will be found most economical iu the cud, though the first outlay is larger than that for American goods. If you discard the flannels in summer, always keep an intermediate suit to wear early iu the fall; aud early iu the spring, before assuming or re jecting your thicker ones. Iu a va riable climate it is not only comfort able, but positively dangerous to take off winter flannels at once, even on the warmest day. Gauze merino or Angola flannel is a good tempora ry substance. Heady made garments should be examined carefully in all the scams, and especially at the end of the stitching. In selecting boots, the foot will present a better appearuuee, and the boots will prcseut a better ap pearance, and the boot will wear much better, if full half an inch longer than the foot. Not only docs a boot that is exactly n fit in length wear out soon at the most conspicu ous place, but it ruins the shape of the foot. This should be especially remembered iu the purchase of chil dren's bonis, ui housua a. thcirA. boot- in childhood will surely make an uglv foot iu maturity. Over dressed children arc as attrac tive as an organ mau's monkeys. At no time of lile is simplicity of at tire so beautiful as in childhood or youth. To sec a little woman with an im mense breastpin, or a pair of enor mous carriiigs,Jis simply absurd. Jew els should be worn only when genu ine. Refinement in dress. A lady of delicacy will be found e vet delicately and modestly attired. Cheap silk has the meanest appcaraucc of any cheap goods. Silk is a luxury, and should be of good quality. One of the most beautiful and use ful of summer fabrics is a fine quali ty of linen lawn, and it has always the advantage of washing well. It is as great an affectation for a young person to assume the dress of middle age, as it is for an elderly person to wear dress becoming and appropriate for amiss of sixteen. A certain gaie ty and brightness of attire is as suita ble for youth as sober colors aud quiet styles arc for the more advanced in life. ROME READING. One of the most pleasant and noblest duties of the head of the family is to furnish its members with good reading. Iu times which are past it was considered enough to clothe and feed and shelter a family. This was the sum of parental duty. But lately it has been found out that wives and children have miuds, so that it becomes a necessity to edu cate the children and furnish reading for the whole household. It has beeu found out that tho mind wants food as well as the body, ami that it wants to be sheltered from the pitiless storms of error and vice by the guarding aud fricudly roof of intelli gence aud virtue. Au ignorant family in our day is an antiquated institution. It smells of the musty past. It is a dark spot which the light of a modern buu of intelligence has not reached. Let good reading go into a home, and the very atmosphere of that home gradually but surely changes. The boys begin to grow ambitious, to talk about men, places, principles, books, the past and the future. The girls begin to feel a new life opening before them in knowledge, duty and love. They see new fields of useful ness and pleasure. And .so the fam ily changes, and out from its number will go intelligent men and women, to fill honorable places and be useful members ef society. Let the torch of intelligence be lit in every house hold. Let the old and the yonug Tie with each other in iutroducieg new and Useful topics of Investigation.and in cheering a. love of reading, study and improvement. Parents are warned against allow ing their children to approach: too near the Grand Duke'a party. They may catch the Ueopenkoff and j Fo po ff. , KLVTS Mi $2 PER ANNUM. mi' uaiuuoOlair As a general rule, the best place for a young man to begin life Is right where he is. He need not go a hun dred or three hundred, or a thousand miles away from borne to try the world; that particular spot where be lives is a part of the world, aud Just as good a place to try as some other particular spot three huudred miles off. In the Easternstates where so ciety is settled, and things change but little, where the business is held in a fixed -channel, aud certain families are supposed to have a prescriptive right to do everything that is done there is not much inducement for a young man to remain at home, unless he possesses the-geuius and enter prise to break through the tradition hat hampers him; but no such condi tion of things exists out West; here everything is new, fresh and plastic, and a voung man may do his part in moulding things to his purposes. It is a very common mistake for young eters, who have not yet butted their tender heads against the hard angles of the world, to imagine that they possess superior talent, if they only had an opportunity to exhibit it. u ney live on a arm, mere n w lUc ,., ul gl.f.dverthinK power chance to show their gemus; if they., iU bu,inca.

If they really possess genius or special aptitudes, may first develop them, aud test the metal they are made of, in tho limit ed sphere of their uative place, and if the experiment proves satisfactory, afterwards transfer them to a wider sphere of action. Thousands of yeuug men who go to great cities to try the world, find such cities too much for them, ami learn too late that it would havo been better for tlieiu to have made their trial in nu humbler and safer sphere.

Oun MoTHEHa. Many a discour aged mother folds her tired hands at night, and feels as if she had.after all. i done nothing, although she has not spent an idle moment since eIic rose. It is nothing that your little helpless childrent havo had some one to come to with all their childish griefs and joys ( It is nothing that your hus band feels "safe" when he is away to his business, because your careful hands direct everything at home ? It is nothing when his business is over, that he has blessed refuge of home, which you have that day done your best to brighten and refine ? Oh ! weary and faithful mother, you little know your power when you say "I have done nothing." There is a book iu which a fairer record than this is written over agaiust your name. Sheridan's solicitor called one day and found his wife alone, and walk ing about iu a 6tate of violent excite ment, lie asked what was the mutter. Her only reply was "that her hus band was a villiau." "After sonic- time she added, with some hesitation, ne wanted them of a "subdued monse "Why, I have discovered "that all the color."

A female "piisscn of cullah" was asked a few days siuce why she never wore white, as black women gener ally were fond of deecking themselves in snowy apparel. "Kasc," said she, "I alius thinks a w hite dress makes a nigger look like a fly iu a pan of milk.".

Probably the moat striking Instant of adherence tu a few rigid rules Is afforded by the man who leads tho mercantile world of this continent. Meu envy his success who might bar stood even with him iu the race had they but iuC-xlbly held io similar rules. ' . First and foremost iu the stand which Mr. Stewart took was the ruin to permit no misrepresentation of goods. Purchasers wore not alow to find out that in this establishment there need be no fear of Imposition. Whether they were perfectly ac quainted with the nature of the goods which they wlshod to purchase, or were entirely Ignorant on the point. ihev were sure of having tho truth. told. Mr. Stewart bad it thoroughly understood by all his clerks that they must tell the truth, and bo bad the injunction so conspicuously placed that his employees were perpetually reminded of tho great rulo of the es tabllKhment.lf aclork was discovered iu au overstatement or a falsehood, ... a Wl ihf nil instantly limisscu. im I ... i .,A..,.o ..f tills rnuran uaiuini uuocniii.v availing uu-mi"o" - The rigid observance of the "ono riK. eva..m" was a rule necessarily '. with tiie first. Dealers i ..... , confess that it W exceedingly difficult to maintain this rule, and where a large proportion of business Is trans acted on credit It is well nigh im possible; but when the rule is "pay ou delivery," It can be malutatnod. Comfort is brought to th house hold of every customer when he feels confident that he can send a child or a servant to make a purchase, aud he will be sure of not only getting tho article be wants lint obtaining it on exactly the same terms as If ho wero to go "himself. It Is a great thing for ithe merchant io discover mat me money of tho poor mini is as good as the money of the rich the cash of the stranger as good a the cash of the ac quaintunce. In Mr. Stewart's vast establishment the clerks have no option whatever In the regiilution of prices ; this they know, can never be tnkoii out of tho hands of the employer. Nine-tenths of the terrors of shop ping take their flight iu view of these rules, and husbands can pluck up courage to go with their wives when they understand there is to Vo no badgering and jewiug. There is still another rule with Mr. lution never to enter it again. But here you may gazo upon millions eX dollars' worth of goods and no man will interrupt either your meditations or admiration. Among tho highest productions of the cunning skill of man you may make your choics with out fear of the least intermeddling importunity. Lipj'tttcolVt Maga zine.
