Such a uight as December usually brings amoiiij llio hills of New Hampshire. Willam's bed was hard, and the cold wind had found its way through many a crack aud erovico in his ruinous cottngo; but ho might have slept if his mind had been at ease. His wifo was a delicate ; ' woman; toil and oxposuuro had brought on a lingering illness, and sho lay all night moaning with pain, and shivering with cold. William arote, and having kindled a fire, went forth into the open air. The : . clouds were black and heavy, and the wind ; ' .' swept in gusts through tho open trees. Away in tho distance tho tops of the hills ' ." were already white with snow. Ho had engaged a day's work on a neighboring . farm; but it was useles to. go the farmer . would not work that day; so ho turned a way with a heavy step, and entered his dwelling. The children wcio soon stir . ring,' and the pale, suffering, mothor arose from her couch to prepare the morning -.'". -meal. - A few potatos were boiled for the father' and children, and a cup of gruel prep-wed for herself. . . .' , . . William Carter and his wife had seen , better days; but sickness and misfortune, 'the fraud of some, and cruelly of others, had driven them forth from their pleasant home, which he had spent the strength of his manhood to purchase, and torced them to. 'take shelter m their present miserable abode. ,. , 'Why can't you have some bread aud buttor?' said little James, a child six years old, pushing away tho potato which was offered him. 'We used to have bread and ries. and I don't want potatos all the time.' s 'An expression of agony passed over the father s face. Bitter teelinsrs were rusn irig through his heart murmurings against Providence repinings at his lot -unbelief i" - in God. . ' 1 i ' - , ' IT: ' , 'I would bear everything but thio, mur mured he.- 'I can bear toil, humiliation .' ' and want myself; but I cannot see my ch.il 1 dren pine for bread, and my wifo shiver- ' ji ' - ing in this miseroblc hovel. If there is a God, why docs he suffer the rich to op """"" press the poor, and the strong to crush tho weak? I sometimes foci like taking justiee.into my own hands, and with my . . - own arm avenging my cause.' . J . , But tho storm was soon over. Softened by the tender, hopeful words of his afflicted wife, his bitterness of spirit passed away. His poverty and his wrongs were all for- " gotten in the memory of his sinful anger ,,'Tl! and murmuring. The spirit of other days M ! returned the divino triumphed over the ' human; and they bowed down before God, with the lovinsr confidence of little children, " ,': ",ca8ting all their caren on his mighty arm, ' , tnd committing tho future to Jiis direo " " tion. ": :" , .i v , . A storm was evidently coming on out side. Already tho ow began to full; . but there was not wood enough at the doir to last two days, and William must go to his neighbor and get permission to cuts few trees, or at least to pick up the limbs that were lying about, lie buttoned up ins coat and went out. Already a thin white drapery lay over tho bosom of the earth, twisted into graceful knots and wreaths. He stepped on something which moved be neath his foot and looking down ho saw a largo pocket-book, half covered with snow. A sudden flash of joy dashed through his heart. ' ' Seizing it, he turned his face from tho wind to examino tho contents.' Thero was a roll of bank notes.whieh he unrolled aud counted. His first impulse was to se cure the money and throw tho pocket book away. . Was it not his own? lit! had found it; had not heaven sent it in.morcy a. a ..relief to his wants an answer .to his prayers? How much good this money would do!" Bread and shelter for his wife and little, ones, whose cheeks were grow ing pale , with want whose merry smiles wore changed to auxious looks of care. Thus ho reasoned but conscience whisper ed, Bewarel suffer not the love of gold to mako a plague spot on thy hurt! The money is not thine;and this may have been permitted as a trial of thy faith! : But, perhaps ho thought, 1 cannot find the owners then it will be mine, honest ly mine; and with the hope that it might contain no evidence ot uie ownership, nc commenced examining the pocket-book a- o-ain. Mortal, condemn mm noiioo severe ly sit not in hasty judgment on tho heart of thy erring brother. Thus tempted, per haps thine own would nave been no better. But the examination left no room for doubt. Thero was tho owner's came, fullv in scribed the name of a rich meruh.int.wilh whom, in days past, William had been ao (juainted. What a death-blow was this to his wild hopes! ' - The vision of comtorw, which had bles sed him for .i moineut, as if in mockery, was snatched away, and ho saw again the miserable hut, tho paly wife, and hungry children. uasniugiiio pocuei-oooK to tne ground, ho stood for a moment and gazed upon it. . 'Tempter! deceiver!' he exclaimed, 'why am I thus mocked and tantalized?' And then, as if a sudden thought had struck him, he picked it up and stopped into the thicket, which offered a partial shelter from the storm, and seated himself on a fallen tree. The elements were in eomino tion, but there was a fiercer conflict in his bosom. He sat thuiO for mora than an hour, tho rushinj wind and fallen snow all unheeded; hut when ho rose up tho conflict was passed, and the expression ol Ins lace, though sau, was pcaceiul and resigned. That night, nfier the children were bed, William produced tho pockot-book, unrolled tho bank notes beforo his aston ished wife, ami told her how he had found it half hidden beneath the snow. What shall you do with it?' sho said. What 1 do with n.' was the reply. Return it to tho owner. We can bear toil and poverty, but not tho reproauhes of a gui.ty conscience. - 'I knew it would be thus. When the d:trk temptation was on me, and the evil in my heart seemed ready to triumph, t hewn that you would not fail to see clearly and approve tho right. The storm is now over, mid to-morrow I must cany the money to air. Carlton. It is about lil'ieen miles; I will start early, and perhaps ho will give me enough to pay niy passage back in the stage." The next morning long beforo sunrise William was on his wny. It was hard walking through tho newly fallon snow; and the wind was cold and piercing; but he pressed resolutely on, and beforo noon ho roached tho house of Mr. Carlton. He ascended the marble steps and rang tho bell. A servant appeared, and, in answer to his inquiry if Mi Carlton was at home, informed him that the gentleman was out, and that ho would not bo back till dinner, which would", be at two. William cast a glance at his thread-bare coat and rusty carments. He did not wish to enter that house, where tho splendor and luxury would form a striking contrast to his own comfortless home, but ho was cold and woary,' and would be Had of a seat any where near the tire; so no saia to tne ser vant , ' v .- J The man eyed him from head to foot, and with a slight sneer on his face, which . , . - ' i .i William did not lau to marts, conducieu him to tho kitchen. Preparation for din ner had commenced. Thero was baking, broiling, roasting such a dinner as would have tempted the nppetito of tho epicure. However, the two hours passed away.-j Mr. Carlton at length came in; and Wil liam gave a bewildered and timid look a round the maerniticent apartment, and ho shrunk as he caught a full view of himself in tho mirror, winch extended almost from the ceiliiiT to tho floor. " ITT...... ....it nntr Kiicninca Tl'itll niA RJI'?' said Mr. Carlton, in an impatient tona. ' 'Yes, sir,' said William, producing tho pocket-book, and handing it to him. 'I found this yesterday; and as it bears your name, I have brought it to you.' 'Ah! thoa you found my pocketrbook. I am glad to seo it again, which I never expected to do.' ' Ho carefully examined it. All richt,' he said, 'and I am obliged to you for returning it, for it contains val uable papers;' then carefully placed it in his pocket. .. William had no more to say. He arose, and with uo further evidence of gratitudo or obligation, ho was suffered to depart. l am sorry you aid noi give . uio poor man something, father,' said a fair girl, as sho seated hcrsolf on an ottoman at his feet. 'Did you notieo how pale ho looked, and how ho almost staggared as he rose to Jjid" her jno, jl aid notnoucou. x would have given him something, if I had thought of it but he is gone now.' 'But, father, you might send it to him. You know him, do you not? I fear ho is very poor.' 'Yes, I had some dealings with him years ago. Now I do remember that I heard he had lost bia farm.' ...... 'How far did he come this cold morning to bring you that pocket-book?' - 'He lives in B; he must havo come fifteen xr twenty miles. 1 ought to have paid l.im well for it; and 1 will not fail to do so yet.' Here the dinner bell interrupted uie conversation; and the tuilitr aud daughter proceeded to tho dining-room. While the nc n man was enjoying ins pleasant repast, William Carter, with a sinking heart and a weary frame, turned his steps towards home.. He had not tast ed food since early dawn, aud now full fif teen miles lay before liim. Uo Iclt disap pointed, indignant, grieved at the cold and indifferent manner in which his services had been received. Resolutely putting down, however, the evil thoughts which all this occasioned, ho'raiscd a silent prayer for help nnd resignation, and pressed on his way. It was late when ho arrived, aud he had scarcely strength to cross the threshhold.nnd throw himself upon his bed. His overtaxed system had given way, and beforo morning ho was raving in the de lirium of a violent fever. Then did his wife foci, that the hand of the Lord was heavily upon her; but her faith failed not. As she watched day after day by tho suf ferer s couch, bathing his burning brow and soothing his wild frenzy with her lov ing voice, sho was able to say " 4 hough he slay me, yet will I trust in him." ' Oli, blessed sustaining power of faith and hopo- faith not in man, but in God hope not of earth, but of heaven! Cling to thy fault, poor woman make thy heart strong in confidence, for God will not forsake thee! even now he is nreDariii'' tho reward. 11 ... Tus pisTiNcrioN or Hacks.

Were there no re morseful thoughts when lie rememuonsu tho careless act of injustice of which ho had been guilty? It was the fifth day of William Carter s . . 1., , . i .i . i. . 6icl;neF8, ana uie pnysicinn sum ir.ai, ww. would be the crisis; if ho lived through it ho might recover. Ho had then fallen in to a lethargic sleep. His pale wife sat holding his hand, and gazing anxiously on his sunken features and half shut eyes. Tho children with sad faces and noiseless steps, crep around them. iiierowasa rap ut tho door; it was opencu, nnu a gen tleman entered. Mrs. Carter looked with inrnrisfl on tho unexnectcd visitor. Ills dress and bearing, so dillerent horn her humble neighbors, at another time might have awed her, but that was no place to feel tho paltry distinctions of.human socie ty. In the presence of that power before which the rich and poor, the mighty and tho weak alike bow, men feel that they are equals that they arc brothers. She arose and offered him a chair, llo did not seem to notieo her, hut advancing to tho bed, he gazod long and anxiously on the ashy fea tures of the sull'eier, while tears chased each other down his cheeks; then turning away ho threw himself into a chair and wept with uncontrolled emotion. This tho reader may have guessed was Mr. Carlton. He cmne into tho neighhor hood.and enquired for William Cartcr.aud had been told of his sickness nnd the prob able cause. The good woman where ho j stonped had a tongue; and litti suspeoiing who ncr hu- ditor was, she had given full scope to tier eloquence in denouncing tlio ungratelul man who suffered her poor neighbor to walk fifteen miles and to return without even a dinner. Mrs. Carter stood gazing in silent as tonishmenton her visitor, when he arose, and placing a heavy purse in her hand.said: Take this, and let no expense he spared for your husband's recovery. I will call again.' Beforo she had time to express her grat itude or surpriso ho was gone. The next morning William was bettor the crisis had passed the fever was gone; but ho lay weak and helpless as a babe.and but for the many comlortswuicn mat purse had produced, he might have died. Ho grow stronger day by day; and at tho end of tho week, ho was sitting supported by pillows in a large arm chair. Mrs. Carter approached the window, and exclaimed: Thero comes the strangor who gave you t.Vin Tnirse .' ' " A minute more nnd ho entered the room.' William he erasped his hand both white and negro hair were sometimes found lit tne same head, a singular case Wits mentioned in my hearing by Dr.. W. He stated that he onco attended a half breed Indian nnd negro, wha had straight Indian hair. He was ill and had his head shaved nnd blUtered. Oa his recovery, when his hairgrew out, it was negro hair, cri-py aud wiry. Thcso are very curious facts,and of much importance in the distinction of races." -perhaps from death. from Singular Cucplu. At Ilexuin.wo took lodging with an old man and old woman husband and wife who lived by them selves, without child or servant, subsisting on the lettering of their parlor and two bed-roocis. They were tall.'.Lin and erect though seventy years of age. When we knocked a', tlio door for admittance, they a:isw?rcJ it together; if we rang the bell, the husbaird and wifo invariably appeared side by side; all our requests aud demands were received by both, and executed with the utmost nicety and exactness. The first uight, arriving htteby the coach from Newcastle, and merely requiring a good tiro and our tea, we were puzzled to understand the reason ot tins double at teiid uice.and I remember my brother.rath er irreverentially wondering whether we were always to bo waited on by these Sia mese twins.' On ringiugthe bell to ruiire for tho night, both appeared as u-ual; the wife carrying the bad-room canilcstick, the huaband standing at the door.

"I have como to make you some atonement for tho injustice of which I was guilty;' and he placed a folded paporin his hand. 'There,' ha continued, 'when you nro nble, read that. ' Do not thank me it's no more than justice. The pocket-book was of great im portance to me; and it cost you dear.' When the sentleman was gone, William opened tho paper, and found it a deed to liimsr-lf of his old houso and farm. There i . .i... i.:i- was dancing anu snouting mnong mi dren; and iu the hearts of tho father and mother a deep and holy joy, mingled with thankfulness aud trust iu God. I need not tell of tho happy reinstating in their former happy homo, nor how in better days William Carter often gathered his grand-children around his knee, and told them of his ' bitter trials and tempta tions, and taught them that who put their trust iu God are uover forsaken.

But that was not the ease; though she rarely made use of tho fac ulty ot Kpeeeh. , I hey both attended mo to my bed-room; when tho old ladt', seeing ma look with some surprise toward her husband, said ' lliere s no oltencc meant, by my hus band coming with me into tho chamber he's stone blind.'

'U s no use, ma am your speaking to my old woman,' said tho. husband; 'she can't hear you, she's quito deaf.' I was astonished. Here was compensa tion! Could a pair bo better matched? man and wife woro indeod.ono flesh; for he saw with her eyes, and she heard with his ears. It was beautiful to mo ever after to watch tho old man and woman in their insepera- blencss. Their sympathy with each- other was as swift as electricity, and made their deprivation as naught. I havo often thought of that old man and woman, and cannot but hopo that, as in li(e they eac divided, but either be sp calamity of being alouo in tho world Chamber's Journal. YV,. It,..f M.

What does he do? Why, like an honorable and chivalrous young fellow as he is, lie sits down and writes the lady every particular of the unhappy turn which has taken place in his fortunes, as suring her that if the fact produced any change in her feelings towards bim, she is released from every promise she had made bim. . .
