J udge Buckley resided ia Berlin across the river from Montpelier.'Yt. One mem ber of the judge's family was a son named Frank, "who - was a half-witted fellow and queer in many ways, r In the summer of 1837 some friends from New York, came to visit the judge, and ' after a stop of a few days started on Saturday mormnar on their way home, intending to stop over. Sunday. with mends a few miles down the river. Frank heard their plans talked "over, and then said : You better- not start j there is going to be a big storm that will carry all the bridges away, and you will have to come back.". 4 ;.-."' The sky being cloudless the erentlemen laughed at Frank and drove off. In the afternoon the storm began, and all that Frank had predicted came true. One of tfce gentlemen's curiosity was so excited that he returned.oon after the storm to learn, from Frank," if possible, how he knew there was to be such a storm, v Af ter mucli coaxing, Frank promised if he would come out with him he would tell. Going out a few rods from the house so a view could be had, Frank, in his drawl ing way, said : '.'You see that balsam tree down in that swamp hole?" - ,' " J'Jie man said fie did. ' ; - " '' Well, said Frank, "when you see . that old yaller cow stand licking her tail round that balsam tree you may know there is goag to be a screamer of a storm."

Sta.ffcprdi Springs, Goim;, Aprili New York Star : A friend of mine pur chased a house a few days ago, on which he proposes to make some radical altera tions, adding a mansard . roof,, building a two-stbry extension, etc. Knowing that I was familiar with the details of a similar experience recently, he called upon me to get some idea of cost, etc. After listening patiently to all his plans I told him what he ought to do. "It was to get five people in- whose judgment and experience he had confidence, explain his plans to them, and get them to put "down the cpst. "Oh, yes," he remarked'after getting these five estimates you average them?'' "Oh, no," said I, "you add them all together,and then you will come somewhere near the-mark.

(From Harper's Young People.) OUR CONCERT. BY JIMMY BBOWK. 1 There is one good thing about Sue, if she is a girl : she is real charitable, and is all the time getting people to give money to missionaries and things. She collected mornahundred dollars from evei so many people last year, and sent it to a society, and her name was in all the papers as "Miss Susan Brown," the young lady that gave a hundred dollars to a noble' cause, and may others go and do likewise. About a month ago she began to get up a concert for a noble object. I forget what the object wasi for Sue didn't make up her mind about it until a day or two before the concert ; but whatever it was, it didn't get much money. i Sue was to sing in the concert, and Mr. Travers was to Bing, and father was to read something, and the 4 Sunday-school was to sing, and the brass band was to play lots of things. Mr. Travers was real good about it, and attended to engaging the brass band, and getting the tickets printed. We've got a first-rate band. You just ought to hear it once. . I'm going to join it some day, and play on the drum ; that is, if they don't find out about the mistake I made with the music. When Mr. Travers went to see the lead ers of the band to settle what music was to be played at the concert he let me go with him. The man was awfully polite, and he showed Mr. Travers great stacks of music for him to select from. After a while he proposed to go and see a man somewheres who played in the band, and they left me to wait until they came back. I had nothing to do, so I looked at the music. The notes were all made with a pen and ink, and pretty bad they were, I snould have been ashamed if I had made them. Just to prove that I could have done it better than the man who did do it, I took a pen and ink and tried it. I made beautiful notes, and as a great many of the pieces of music weren't half full of notes, I just filled in the places where there weren't any notes. I don't know how long Mr. Travers and the leader of the band were gone, but I was so busy that I did not miss them, and when I heard them coming I sat up as quiet as possible, and never said anything about what I had done, because we never should praise ourselves or seem to be proud of our own work. Now I solemnly say that I never meant to do any harm. All I meant to do was to improve the music that the man who wrote it had been too lazy to finish. Why, in some of those pieces of music there were places three or four inches long without a single note, and you can't tell me that was right. But I sometimes think there is no use in trying to help people as I tried to help our brass band. People are never grateful, and they always manage to blame a boy, no matter how good he is. I shall try, however, not to give way to these feel ings, but to keep on doing right no matter what happens. .The next night we had the concert, or at anv rate we tried to have it. The town. J hall Was full f people, and Sue said it did beeui Hart ui an fuuuu moiiy a xxre jkjo pie had paid to come to the concert should all have to go to charity when she really needed a new seal-skin ooat. The perform ance was to begin with a song by Sue, and the band was to play just like a piano while she was singing. The song was all about being so weary and longing so hard to die, and Sue was singing it like any thing, when all of a sudden the man with the big drum hit it a most awful bang, and nearly frightened everybody to death. People laughed out loud, and Sue could hardly go on with her song. But she took a fresh start, and got along pretty well till the big drum broke out again, and the man hammered away at it till the leader went and took his drum-sticks away from him. The people just howled and yelled, and Sue burst out crying and went right off the stage and longed to die in real earnest. When things got a little bit quiet, and the man who played the drum had made it up with the leader, the band began to play something on its own account. It be gan all right, but it didn't finish the way it was meant to finish. First one player and then another would blow a loud note in the wrong place, and the ' leader .would hammer on his music-stand, and the peo ple' would laugh themselves 'most sick. After a while the band came to a place where the trombones seemed to get crazy, and the leader just jumped up and knocked the trombone-player down with a big horn that he snatched from another man. Then somebody hit the leader with a cornet and knocked him into the big drum, and there was the awfulest fight you ever saw -till somebody turned out the gas. i There wasn't any more concert that night, and the people all got their money back, and now Mr. Travers and the leader of the band have offered a reward for "the person who maliciously altered the music" that's what the notice says. But I wasn't malicious, and I do hope nobody will find out I did it, though I mean to tell father about it . as soon as he gets over having his nose pretty near broke by trying to in terfere between the trombone-player and the man with the French horn. "Who are those two men ?" asked Dea con Gilpin of 'Squire McGill the other evening. "Oh, those are themen who come to work in Joralum's place. He has moved to Binghamton." "To work in Joralum's place ; why, he was the laziest man in Marathon 1" "I know it, and that's the reason there's two of them. . It takes both of them to be as lazy as he was."

Unlike most others, this martyrdom of Hale's had this distinguishing excel lence, that it was essentially a voluntary one. Mot ail to be sure, but most of the great sacrifices in the world's military an. nals were acts of military obedience glori ous as such, 1 grant but still acts of obe dience to a superior will that had power to compel obedience. The three hundred, for example, who fell at ThermoplysB fell, as their monuments still tell, "in obedience to the laws'laws that put to instant death the soldier who turned to flight in the face of an enemy. The six hundreds who rode into "the jaws of hell at iialaklava, rode under orders that it would have been dis honor and death to disobey, even when the orders were a blunder. All these,' and many others whom it were long to name, have made themselves immortal in all time by the glory of a heroic obedience. But observe, I pray you, that Hale's sacrifice had in it no element whatever of obedi ence ; for his undertaking was above all the ranges of law, civil or military. It was a peril on whioh no being might be sent by any human authority : for who goes upon such a peril goes upon a more than forlorn hope, and he who comes not back dies a death of unspeakable shame and ignominy. Abraham Lincoln has passed into history with an unparalleled glory of martyrdom. Far be it from me to dim its luster. But . let us not forget to discriminate. Lin coln's sacrifices occurred in a service which involved the highest rewards of human ambition, and, so far as could be foreseen. nothing whatever of human peril. . Hale, on the other hand, undertook a service which was full of foreseen peril from the beginning, which promised success only as a hope, but chains, attainder and the gib bet as a probability. Are there red crowns of martyrdom in the world's history for thi one, and f or the other nothing but a cheap and faded recollection in his native state ? Let me suggest another thought. This sacrifice of Hale's, though voluntary, as I have already said, was not an ungovemed, impulsive, or quixotic act of courage. Some darings of this sort have been great ly admired by the world, even when law less and insubordinate, sometimes when io rash, headstrong and useless as to be al most suicidal. , i Nathan Hale's enterprise was not of this sort not at all. It took none of the forms or glamours of ambitious soldiership, but was a reasoning, religious inspiration of duty. The American army had just been disastrously defeated at Long Island ; Brooklyn and New Yrfrk evacuated ; the enemy in possession ; our men ill clad., ill fed, ill armed, ill disciplined, discouraged by defeat, and thinned by desertion ; Washington driven back on Harlem Heights, resolute and unshaken, but anx ious and perplexed in the extreme ; well nigh surrounded by British armies and fleets : threatened in front, flank and rear. yet ignorant of the enemy's real purpose. Who now, in this supreme moment of peril, when the lives, liberties and fortunes of our fathers and of their posterities are t trembling in the scales who now will tak& v his life in his hand, venture within the en- - emy s lines, and discover his strength and design ? Is there none ? 'Tis. Washington who . asks and Knowlton who repeats the ques tion. Yes, great captain of our .liberties', dauntless soldier of God, one there is -only , do near is grandeur to our dust, ' So near ia God to man, When duty whispers low, thou must, The youth replies, I can. Though love repine and reason chafe, ; There comes a voice without reply, ' 'Tis man's perdition to be safe, When for the truth be ought to die. It was at such a time, in such a necessity, and upon such an invitation that Nathan Hale went upon his fatal errand, and went, no vulgar spy for hire, but a consecrated apostle of duty a duty, I repeat, which kept him within the sanctions of authority and law, while it rose above all the obliga tions of both. Was I not right then in saying that in this regard Hale's sacrifice has an excellent merit ? Then again, if you would get a just view of this man's martyrdom and sound it to its depths, there is one other thing whioh I must throw into the foreground. I have already hinted at it. It is the appalling desolation and the still more appalling ig nominy of his suffering. What is there in all the possibilities of human misfortune so bordering on utter wretchedness and de spair as to die at the hands of a common ' hangman in the midst of one's enemies, a victim to their utmost malice ? What oth er cup so mingled with gall and wormwood ? Those who fall in battle -at the edge of the sword, go not to death in this wise, but strengthened by multitudinous companion ships in peril, incited by soldierly rivalries and ambitions, by the epic grandeurs, of war, the rolling drum, the shouting of captains, the horses running to battle. These things lift brave men, base men of ten, Cowards sometimes, into great altitudes of courage. But this man mark the sharp ness of the contrast this man entered alone and unbefriended upon his mission of peril ; alone and unbefriended he trod the path and death, and he bore its cross as heroically as if some pitying angel had bent, down from the pitying heavens and strengthened him in his travail.
