The Verc:enDos Verrnonter tells tho following !u'.liciou;i etory : A few days since a lady rckiJin" in the eastern part of the Stale, having just returned f rom an evening's enter tainment, bearing a noise on the back btoop, a long and very narrow one, she 'eteoped out to ascertain the ciuse. At the further cud she discovered tho in. truder iu the shape of a good sized bog. She at once assumed a belligerent atti. tude and commenced screaming ' Whco ! wheo ! ' The hog took the alarm aud made for tho door, and discovering tho largest space to be between tho lady's two feet, pitched for that, and sho iu Btantly assumeda horizontal position and movement for tho door.

The Thirty Yens' War wan ever, and Germany rested irom blood. Two years allcr the peace, George Neuinark, a young man was liviug in one of the nar rowest and filthiest lanes ol Hamburg. No ono visited him, aud all that the people of the house new of him wa, that for tho most part of every day he played nis violoncello wiih such skill and cxprcibion that they thronged round hia door to catch the music. Ilia cus. torn was to go about midday and dino in a low restaurant, lYcijuciitud by beggars ; lor tho icst he would go out in tho twi light with something under his shabby cloak, and it was always noted that he paid his bill the day alter such an expe dition. This had not escaped tho curi osity of Mistress Johannseu, his land, lady; and having (juie'ly followed him one evening, he stopped, to her dismay, at the shop of a well known pawnbroker, it was all plain now j and tho good natured woma:i determined to help him il she could. A few d.'.ys after, kIio tapped at his door, acd was filled with pity to find nothing in the room but her own Bcanty furniture. All the rest had been re moved, save the woll.known violoncello, which stood iu tho corner of tho window w hi Lt tho youog man sat iu theopposito window-corner, his bead buried in his Lauds. ' Mr. Neumark,' said the landlady, ' dou't take it ill that I make so free as to visit you, but as you have not left tho J house lor two days, and wo nave liad no music, 1 thought you might bo &ick. If I could do a&y thing ' ' Thank you, my good woman,' ho answered wearily aud with ead gratltudo in his tone ; ' I am not confined to bed, aud 1 Lave no fevor; but I am ill very ill.' ' Purely, then, you ought logo bed?' ' No,' ho replied very quickly, and blubhed deeply. ' Oh 1 but you must,' cried MiHtroen t7j"..iiUhi-jii VoUIt. ' Mow, Unur me. l ia an old woman, old etwngh to be your moihev, and I will j'ist see if yonr bed is right.' 4 l'ray don't trouble yourself,' ho re plied, and sprang up quickly before the bedroom door. It was too late, however, for the good woman had already seen that thero was nothing but a bag of straw and that tame bhabby mantle in which ho made tho evening journeys. Sho left the room, and in a few minutes returned laden with dinner. ' You must not tAo it ill,' she began, when dinner was over 5 ' but you ore surely not a nativo of our town. Do you know any ouo hero ?' ' No one ; I am a stranger : but you are the first person that lias spoken to me kir.dly. May God bless you ! ' Y.'cll, uow, if it would not be rudo, I would liko to ask you somo questions. Whoaieyoa? What is your liaino ? Where do you come from ?

' IJreathlcirS rather than exhausted, eho Mopped, and the young wan, fcinil'mir at hi j yoo.i.n;itu;ed eatechir.t, be;;r.s : ' My Oiitoe is Geoic'c Neumark. My varenta were poor townsfolk of Muhlhauscn, and aro bMih dead. I was born there nine and twenty years a;o, on tho ciitecnth of M.'reb, 1021. There have been hard times' ever since, and I have had to eat, and often first to seek my daily bread with U a'rs- Yet I must not be impa. licnt ttiiu murmur and sin against the Lord' my God. I know that ho iil help me at .'ho last.' JJut how iJid jou think to get your living ! ' interrued the landlady. ' I Mudied jurisprudence, but was unsuccessful. For tn years I Buffered huntrer and thirst enough tft the Latin school of Schlousingen, a little towu in tho neighborhood of my bir'hplacc, where I learned that the wisdocn o' this world will not give me bread. Ti';en, at two and twenty, I went to Kouigsberg to study law. It was far to journey, but I lied from the hideous strilo that wast, cd my fatherland. I avoided the hor rors of war, but ouly to fall into the equal horror of fire, cud I soon lost by the flame ull 1 hud, to the last farthing, and was a beggar.' ' Why, whal'had you to live on ? ' ' The gift oI'Gol. You mu.-ft know that I am a poet, and you may have heard that I have home readiness in playing the violuucello, and by thao 1 iound many friends and benefactor, who helped mo indeed sparingly enough.' ' Aud did you rcniaiu in Kouig-berg till you came here ? ' ' No,' ho answered, bighing heavily. 1 After Gvo years I went to Duuzig, in tlii; hope of earning bread there; and finding that a false hope went to Thorn, nu'l 0."?e "'iceeedod beyond my expec RID G WAY, PENNA., tation. God brought to mo many u dear soul, that took mo for friend and brother. Lut for nil that I cnuld find no ollioinl position, and so 1 determined at last to Beck in my native town what was denied mo elsewhere. Hamburg lay in my way, aii'i as i passed tnrougu it a voice Hcciued to Bay to mo : 4 Abide hero, and God will supply thee.' J5ut it must have been the voice of my own will ; for you know that things are not bright with me here.' 4 Lut tell me,' said tho landlady, 'what ofiico do you seek ? ' If it wcro God's will, I could earn lay bread at writing, at a clerkship of any sort.' ' Then you arc not a musician ? ' ' WTel!, I am, and I am not. I can play a little, but for ray pleasure, and to win bread. This violin ia my only friend in the world.' 4 Kut how do you live f ' ' My good woman,' he said with a faint smile, 4 1 could tell you much of tho wonderful goodncs and mercy of God to mo in all my misery. It is true I havo now nothing left but this dear old violin. But you know Mr. Seibert? He has a clerkship vacant, and he is to answer my application to-day. I be lieve it is time for me to be with him, so you must excuse me.' CHArTER n. Nathan Ilirsoh, the Jew pawnbroker, dwelt in a narrow, orooked lane that led down to tho harbor. Late one evening a young man in a shabby cloak, entered the musty shop. Good evening, Mr. Neumark,' said the Jew. ' What brings you so late. Havo yon no patience till tho morning? ' 4 No, Nathan ; if I had waited till tho morning, perhaps I had not come at all. What will you give me for this violoncello ? ' 4 Now, what am I to do with this great fiddle ? 'drawled the Jew. 4 That yo know perfoctly well, Na than, put it in theoorner thero behind the clothes, where no one will see it. Now, what will you give me for it J ' Nathan, took it up, examined it on every side, and said, aa ho laid it down, 4 What, will I give you ? Is it for two pence worth of wood and a oouplj with silver and mothor-of-pcarl ; but there is nothing here but lumber. ' ' Hear me,' said Neumark. ' full five years loug I hoarded, farthing by farthing, full five years I suffered hun ger and pain, before I had tho five pounds that bought this inMtrtment. Loud mo two on it. You shall havo three should I ever redeem it. ' The Jow flung up his hands. Two pounds ! Hear him I Two pounds for a penny worth of wood ! What am I to do with it if you won't redeem it ? 4 Nathan' and the young man Bpokc low and strong 4 You don,t know how my wnole soul is in this violin. It is my last earthly comfort, my only earthly friend. I tell theo, I might almost as well pawn my soul as it. Would st thou have my soul ? ' 4 Why not ? And if you did not ro deem it, it would be inioe. But what would a Jew do with your bouI ? ' riu.sh, jew. lot tho fault was my own. The Savior, whom thy people cruciucd, lias redeemed my bouI. aud I am his. I spoke in the lightness of despair. But I am his, and ho will never leave mo to want. It is hard when I must sacrifice tho last and dear est. But he will help me. Iwil! pay theo back. ' 4 Young man, you will not deceive me with these vain hopes. The last time, did yon not tell me that a rich merchant would help you ? , 4 Sicbert ? Yes. I went to him at his own hour, and he said I came too late ; tho place was given to auother. Am I to bear the penalty of the conduct of others ? 4 1 deal with you, aud not with others,' returned the Jew coldly. 4 Take yonr great fiddle away. ' 4 Nathan, you know I am a gtraugor hero. Iteracmber when you were a stranger, aud tho Christian helped the Jew. I know no one but you. Give mo but thirty ehillihgs.' 4 Thirty shillings ! Have I not said .ilready that no merchant can give thiyty sb illingi for a pennyworth of wood f ' 4 .Thou art a hard and cruel man ! ' Anu, with theso words, Neumark snatched up his beloved violoncell aud rushed out of the shop, 4 Stop, stop, young man,' cried the you Jew : trade is tiado I will one routi; ,i ' Thirty (..hillings, Nathan. To-mor. row I must pu.y one pound, and how an I to live i liuve mercy. 4 1 have sworn that I will not give thirty shillings ; biU out of old friend ship, I will give you five and twenty ; that is, (you will note,) with a penuy intermit on every florin for eight days, and for the next week two peuee, an 1 if you eauuotpay me then, it is mine. Now, what am to do with this great pioco of wood ? ' ' It is hard : but I must unl""' M" APRIL ith, 1867. God have mercy on mo f ' 4 Ho isa good and faithful God, the God of my fathers, and ho helped me much, or I could not afford to lose by such bargains as this. Twelve pence and four-and.twcnty pence make six-and. thirty. I may as well tako it off the five-and-twenty shiilings ! it will save you bringing it back here.' Nenma'-k made no answer. He was gazing at his violoncello, while the tears rolled silently down his cheek. 4 Nathan, I havo but one request. You don't know how hard it is to part from that 'violin. For ten years we have been together. If I havo nothing else I have it : at tho worst it spoke to me, and suug back all my courage and hopo. Ten times rather wonld I give my heart's blood than this beloved comforter. Of all the sad hearts that havo left your door thero has been nono so sad as miuc.' His voice crew thick, and he paused for a moment. ' Just this one favor you must do mo, Nathan ; to let me play once more upon my violin.' And ho hurried to it without waitiD" for au a-.iBwer. 4 Hold 1 ' cried tho Jew, in a passion ; 4 the shop should havo been closed an lour ago but for you and your fiddle, Come to-morrow, or, not at all.' 4 No to'day, now, returned Neu- mark. 4 1 must say farewell,' and seiz ing the instrument, and half embracing it, ho sat down on an old chest in the middle of tho shop, and began a tune so exquisitely soft that the Jew listened in spue of himself. A tew more stanns, and he sang to his own melody two stan- zas of the hymn "Lifo is weary, Saviour, talco mo." ' Enough, enough,' broke in the Jew. ' What is the uso of all this lamenta. tion ? You have fivo-and-twenty ehill ings in your pocket-' But the musician was deaf. Absor bed in his own thoughts, he played on. Suddenly the key changed. A lew bars, and the melody poured itself out anew ; but, like a river which runs into the sunshine out of the shade of sullen banks, he sang louder, and his face lighted up- with happy smiles : "TlitlrnP mm wmm " f" That's better. Stick by that,' shouted the Jew. And don't forget that you hava fivo-and-twenty shillings in your pocket. Now, theo, in a fort night tho thing is mine if you havo not redeemed it." And he turned aside, muttering mcchanioally, 44 but what am I to do with a great pioce of lumber work?" Neumark laid his violin gently back in the corner, and murmured, 4 Ut fiat divina voluntas As God will I am still ; " and without a word of adieu lelt tho shop. As he rushed out into the night, he stumbled against a man who seemed to havo becu listening to the musio at the door. 4 Pardon me, sir, but may I ask if it was you who played and sang so beauti fully just now ? ' 4 Yes,' said Neumark hurriedly, and pushed on. The stranuer seised hold of his oloak 4 Pardon me, I am but a poor man, but that hymn you sung has gone through my very soul. Could you tell ma, per haps, whore I might got a copjr ? am only a servant, but 1 would give a florin to get this hymn that was just written, I do believe, tor myself. 4 My good friend,' replied Neumark cently, 4 will willingly fulfil your wish without tho florin. May I ask who you aro?' 1 John Gutig, at your service, and in tho house of the Swedish Ambassador, Baron von Bosenkrant.' 4 Well, como early to-morrow morning. My name is George Neumark ; and you will fiud me at Mistress Johannscn's, in the Crooked lane. Good night.' OflAPTEH in. Ouo morning, about a week after this, Gutig paid a second visit to Mistress Jo hannsen's. Neumark rsccivod him kindly. 4 Perhaps, sir, you will think what I am going to say foolish, but I have prayed o?er it the whole night, and I hopo I may mako so bold.' 'What ? Is it a second copy of the hymn ; of course you may havo it with pleasure. ' 4 No, no, sir, it is not that. I have tho copy you gave mo in my Biblo, to keep it better ; though if it were lost, I think I havo it as well off as the Lord's Prayer and the Creed. But yesterday you won't take it ill ? ' 4 Never mind ; go on. ' 4 Well, sir, tho Ambassador had a seo. retary that wrote all his letter?. Yester day he suddenly left the house; why, no one knew ;but we believe that the mas ter found him in default aud let him easily off. Yesterday evening, as I saw my lord to bed, he said to me ; 4 Now that Mr. Secretary is gone, 1 know not where to look for as clever a one.

Neumark left tho hotel of the Am bas.sador that evening with a radiant face, and as he walked quickly through the streets, talked with himself, whilo smile stole across his lips : 4 Yes, see leave God to order all thy ways.' It was to Jew Nathan s that ho took his way. ' Give mo my violoncello, ' ho cried. 1 Here arc tho five-and-twenty shil lings, and a half crown more. You need not be bo amazed. I know you well. You took advantage of my poverty, and bad 1 been an hour beyond the tort- night you would have pocketed the five pounds. Still, 1 thank you for the fivo and-twenty shillings ; but for them must have lelt Hamburg a beggar, Nor cn I feel that you did anything yourself, but wore simply an instrument in tho hand of God. You know nothing of the joy that a Christian has in saving another, so I pay you in what coin you liko best, an extra half-orown. Here aro the one bound seven and sixpence in bard money. . Only remember this : " Who trusts in God's unchanging love Builds on the rock that naught can move. Seizing his violoncello in triumph, Neumark swept homeward with hasty steps, never pausing till he reached his room, sat down, and began to play with m.tnYt hna.Anl- " I J (than nHtui niflhan ia nrm him wirh storm of questions, all of which ho bore unheeding, and played and sang until his landlady scarce knew if ttho was in heaven or earth. 4 Are you there, good Mistress Jo hannsen ? be said, whon he had finished ' Well, perhaps you will do me the kindness to call in as many people as thero are in the house und in the street Bring them all in. I will sing you hymn that you nover heard before, for I am the happiest man in Hamburg, Go, dear, good woman ; ro bring mo congregation, aud I will preach them a sermon on my violoncello.' Ia a few minute the room was full- Then Neumark seized bis bow, played bar or two, opened his mouth and sang 44 Lcavo God to order all thy ways, And bope in him, whate'er betide; Thou'lt find him in the evil dnyi An all sulfioient strength to gnido. Who trusts iu God's unchanging Ioto, Bui'ds on the rock that naught can mere. 14 What can these anxious cares il, These nerer ceasing moans and sighs ? What can it help us to bewail ach painful moment as it flies T Our cross and trials do but press The heavier for our bitterness. " Only your restloss heart keep still, And wait ia cheerful hope, oonteat To lake whate'er his graciuus will, His all-discerning love hath sent ; Rat doubt onr inmost wants are known To him who chose us for his own." Here the singer stopped, for his voice trembled, aud the tears ran down bis cheeks. The littlo aulieuco stood fixed in silent sympathy ; but at last Mistress Johanusen could contain herself no longer. 4 Bear, dear sir,' sho began, drying her eyes with her apron, for there was not a dry oheek iu the crowd, ' that is all like aa if I Bit iu ohuroh, aud for. got all my care, and thought of God in heaven and Christ upon the cross. How haa it all come about ? You wcro so downcast this morning, and now you make my heart leap with joy. Has God Doen helping you f ' 1 Yes that he has, my dear, gracious. God and Father ! All my need is over, Unly think ; I am secretary to the Swedish Ambassador here in Hamburg ; have a hundred crowns a year. Aud to complete my happiness, ho gave mo five, aud. twenty crowns in hand, so that 1 have redeemed my poor violin. Is not the Lord our God a wonderful and gra cious God ? Yes, yes, my good people be suro of this : 4 Who trusts in God's unchanging love Builds ou tho rock l)it naught can move.'

" When he ceased for the second time. he was to much moved that he put away uiu vioionceno in me coi ner, and the little audience quitely dispersed. buch is tho story of ono of tho most beautiful of all the German hymns, ono of those which has preached tho truest sermon to troubled and fretted and das- pairing hearts. After two years, Baron vwi Itosenkranit procured bis- secretary tho post of Librarian of tho Archives at eimar, and there he peacefully died in hia sixty-first year. He wrote much,, verses indood almost innumerable. But tho legacy ho left to the Church was the hymn that the sirtlple-hearted man played when God gave him back hi beloved 4 viola di Gamba.'
