From the Gulden Era.
GOING HOME.
Wo said tin t tho days wore evil,
Wo fot’ that they might be fore.
For low was our fortune's level.
And heavy the winter grow ;
Hut one who had no powessioo
Looked up to the azure Home,
And safal ir» his simple tnetiion,
“Hoar friends, we are going home. ’
Tho world fs the same dull market
That w varied its earliest sage ;
The times to Urn wise are dark yet,
And so hath been many an age;
And rich grow the toiling nations,
And red grow the battle spears,
And dreary with desolations
Roll onward the laden years.
What need of the changeless story
Which time hath so often told.
The spectre that follow's glory,
The canker that comes w ith gold
Thiil wisdom, and strength, and honor,
Must fade like the far sea-foam,
A ml death is the only winner!
Cut. friends, wo are going homo!
The homes we had imped to rest in
Were open to sin ami strife,
Tito dreams our youth was blest in
Were not for the wear of life ;
For care can darken the cottage.
As well as the palace hearth.
And birthrights are sold for pottage,
But never redeemed on earth.
The springs have gone by in sorrow,
The summers were grieved away,
And ever we feared to-morrow,
And ever we Mamed to-day.
In depths w hich the searcher sounded,
On hills which the high heart dumb,
Have troubles and toil abounded ;
Put, friends, we are going home!
Our faith was the bravest builder,
Put found not a stone of trust;
Our love was the fairest gilder,
Put lavished its wealth on dust.
And time has the fabric shaken,
And fortune the clay hath shone,
For much they have changed ami taken
Put nothing that w as our ow n.
The light which made us baser.
The paths which so many choose,
The gifts there was found no place for,
The riches we could not use;
The heart that when life was wintry,
Found summer in strain and tone,
With these to our kiu and country;
“ Dear friends, we are going home!”
Xew Way to Get a H csbasd. —A gentle
man of the bar, in u neighboring county, in
easy circumstances, and a pretty good prac
tice, had rendered himself somewhat renmrka
ble by his attempts in the way of matrimonial
s|ieculation. A maiden, rather advanced in '
years, residing some miles distant in the ncigh
l«)thood, hearing of this lawyer’s speculating
propensity, that his character was unexcep- \
uomvlde, and bis situation in life was tolera
bly good, resolved to make him her husband, j
fche hit upon the following expedient; She
pretended suddenly to bo taken very ill, and
sent for the man of the law to draw her will
- he attended for that purpose. Jly her will
she devised £IO,OOO in hank stock, to In* di
vided among her three cousins, some three
thousand bonds and notes to a niece—-and the
vast landed estate to a favorite nephew. This
will being fiuisbe. , she gave the lawyer a very
liberal fee and enjoined secresy upon him for
some pretended purpose— thus precluding
him from an enquiry into her real circumstan
ces. Need 1 meat'on the result? In a fort
night the lady thought proper to be restored I
to health. The lawyer called to eongratu- 1
late her on her restoration—begged jx-nnis- 1
sion to visit, which was politely given. After
a short courtship, the desired offer was made.
The bargai n was concluded, and ratified by
the priest. The lawyer’s whole estate by his '
wife, consists of au annuity of sixty■-five dol
lars.—jAcayol paper.

directly contrary. The larger the ca|Micity,

surer test of integrity and Judgment than a
well proportioned expenditure.

Taking Care of Humber One.
“ Every one for himself. ” This was one of
Lawrence Tilghman’s favorite expressions.—
it will do him no injustice to say that he
usually acted up to the sentiment in his busi
ness transuetions and social intercourse;
though guardedly, whenever a too manifest
exhibition of selfishness was likely to effect
him in the estimation of certain parlies with
whom he wished to stand particularly fair.—
In all his dealings this maxim was alone re
garded; and he was never satisfied unless, in
bargaining, he secured the greater advantage,
a thing that pretty generally occurred.
Then; resided in the same town with Tilgh
man—a western town—a certain young lady,
whose father owned a large amount of prop
erty. She was his only eliild, and would fall
heir to all his wealth. Of course this young
lady had attractions that were felt to be of a
most weighty character by certain young men
in the town, who made themselves as agreea
ble. Among these was Lawrence Tilgh
man.
“ Larry, ” said a friend to him one day—
they had been talking about the lady—" it’s
no use for you to play the agreeable to Helen
Walcot.”
" And why not, pray? ” returnedTilghman.
"They say she’s engaged.”
“ To whom? ”
“ To a young man in Columbus, Ohio,”
Who soys so?”
"Engaged, hal Well, I'll break that
engagement, if there’s any virtue in trying.”
" You will? ”
“Certainly. Helen will be worth a plum
when her father dies, and I’ve made np ray
mind to handle some of his thousands.”
“ Hut, certainly, Larry, you would not
attempt to interfere with the marriage coli
traet? ”
"I don’t believe any contract exists, ’’ re
plied the young man. “’Anyhow, while a
lady is single I regard her as in the market,
ami to be won by the boldest.”
“Still, we should have some respect for the
rights of others.”
“ Every one for himself in this world,” re
plied Tilghman. "That is my motto. If
you don’t take care of yourself you’ll 1h)
shored to the wall in double quick time.—
Long ago 1 resolved to put some forty or
fifty thousand dollars between myself and (>.<■
world by marriage, and you may be sure that
1 will not let this opportunity slip for any
consideration. Helen mnst lie mine.”
Additional evidence of the fact that the
young lady was under engagement of mar
riage soon came to the ears of Tilghman.—
The effect was to produce a closer attention
on his part to Helen, who, greatly to his un
easiness, did not seem to give him much en
couragement, although she always treated
him with politeness and attention whenever
he called to see her. Hut it was not true, as
Tilghman had heard, that Helen was engaged
to a young man in Columbus; though it was
true that she was in correspondence with n
gentleman named Walker, and that their ac
quaintance was intimate and fast approach
ing a lover like character.
Still she was not indifferent to the former,
nnd as he showed so strong a preference for
her, began, gradually, to feel an awakening
interest. Tilghman was quick to perceive
this, and it greatly elated him. In the exul
tation of his feelings he said to himself;
"I'll show this Columbus man that I’m
worth a dozen of him. The boldest wins the
fair. I wouldn’t give much for his engage
ment.”
Tilghman was a merchant, nnd visited the
East twice every year for the purjiose of buy
ing goods. In August he crossed the moun
tains us usual. Borne men when they leave
home and go among strangers, leave all the
good breeding they may happen to have had
behind them. Such a man was {Tilghman.—
The moment lie stepped into a steamboat,
stage or railroad ear, the every-one-for-him
self principle by which be was governed man
ifested itself in all its naked deformity, ami it
was at once concluded by all with whom he
came in contact, that, let him be whom he
would, he was no gentleman.
On going up the river, on the occasion re
ferred to, our gentleman went on the free
and-easy principle, as was usual with him
when in public conveyances ; consulting his
own inclinations and tastes alone, and running
his ellrows into any and everybody’s ribs that
happened to be in his way. lie was general
ly first at the table when the bell rang, and
as he had a good appetite, managed while
there to secure a full share of the delicacies
provided for the company.
" Every one for himself,” was the thought
in his mind on these occasions, and bis actions
fully agreed with his thoughts.
On crossing the mountains in stages (this
was before the railroad from Baltimore to
Washington was completed) as far as Cum
berland, his greedy, selfish, and sometimes
downright boorish profiensities, annoyed his
fellow passengers, and particularly a young
man of quiet, refined and gentlemanly deport
ment, who could not at times help showing
the disgust he felt. Because he paid his halt
dollar fer meals at the taverns on the way,
Tilghman seemed to feel himself license! to
gormandise at a beastly rate The moment
he sat down to the table he would seize eager
ly upon the most desirable dish near him, and
appropriate at least a half, if not two-thirds,
of what it contained.regardless utterly of his
fellow passengers; then he would call the next
most desirable dish if he could not reach it,
and lieip himself after a most liberal fashion.
In eating he seemed more like a hungry dog,
in his eagerness, than a man posses&ig a
grain of decency When the time came to
[mrl with him his fellow-travellers rejoiced at
being rid of one whose utter selfishness tilled
them with disgust
fn Fhdech'fpbia amt Now York, where
Tilghman felt that he was altogether unknown
he indulged his uncivilized propensities to
their full extent. At one of the hotels, just
before leaving New York to return to Balti
more, and there take the cars for the West
again, he met the young man referred to as a
travelling companion, nnd remarked the fact
that he recognized and frequently observed
him. Under this observation, as it seemed to
have something sinister in it, Tilghman felt at
times a little, uneasy, ami at the hotel table
rather curbed bis greediness when this indi
vidual was present.
Woolly, lie left New York, in the 12 o’-
clock bout intending to pass on to Baltimore
iu the night vrain from Philadelphia and ex
pcricnced it sense of relief in petting rid of
the presence of one who appeared to know
him and to hare taken a prejudice against
him. As the Itoat swept down the bay, Til
ghnmn amused himself first with a eipar on
the fonmrd deck and then with a promenade
on the upper deck. He had already secured
his dinner tieket. When the fumes of roast
turkey eame to his eager sense he felt “ sharp
set” enough to have devoured a whole gob
bler ! This indication of the approaching
meal caused him to dive down below where
the servnnts were busy in preparing a table.
Here he walked backward and forward for
about half an hour, in company with u dozen
others, who,like himself, meant to take care of
number one Then as the dishes of meat be
gan to une in he thought it time to secure
n go< ) re. So after taking careful obser
vation, he assumed a position, with folded
arms, opposite a desirable dish, and wailed
the completion of the arrangements. At
length all was ready, and a waiter struck the
bell. Instantly, Tilghman drew forth a chair
and had the glory of being first at the table.
He had lifted his plate and just cried, as he
turned partly around Here, waiter, bring
me some of that, roast turkey. A side bone
and a piece of the breast I’’ when a band
was laid on his shoulder, and the clerk of the
boat said, in a voice of authority :
“ Further down ! Further down ! We
want these seats for Indies.”
Tilghman hesitated.
“ Quick I quick !” urged the clerk.
There was n rustling behind him of ladies’
dresses, and our gentleman fell that he must
move. In his eagerness to secure another
place he stumbled over a chair and came near
falling prostrate. At length he brought up
at the lower end of the table.
“ Waiter !” be cried, as soon ns he found a
new jiosition, “ waiter, I want some of that
roast turkey I”
The waiter did not hear, or was too busv
with some one else to hear.
So loudly and earnestly was this uttered
that the observation of every one at that end
of the table was attracted towards the young
man. But he thought of nothing but secu
ring bis provender. At length he received
his turkey, when he ordered certain vegeta
hies, and then began eating greedily, while his
eyes were every moment glancing along the
table to see what else there was to tempt his
jmla*e.
“ A\ uiter? ” he called, ere the first mouth
ful was fnir'y swallowed.
The waiter came.
" Have you any oyster sauce? ” <
“ No, sir,”
“ Great cooks! Tcrkey without oyster
sauce. Bring me a slice of ham.”
“ Bottle of ale, waiter! ” soon issued from
his lips.
The ale was bronght, the cork drawn, and
the bottle set beside Tilghman, w ho, in his
haste, poured his tumbler two-thirds full ere
the contact of air had produced effervescence.
The consequence was that the liquor flowed
suddenly over the gloss, and sprciid its crea
my foam for the sjmee of four or five inches
around. Several jiersons sitting near by hail
taken more interest in our young gentleman
who was looking after number one than in the
dinner before them, and when this little inci
dent occurred, could not suppress a titter.
Hearing this, Tilghman became suddenly
conscious of the ludicrous figure he had made,
and glanced quickly from face to face.
The first countenance his eyes rested upon
was that of the yonug man who had been his
stage companion; near him was a lady who
had thrown back her veil, and whom ho in
stantly recognised as Helen Walcotl She it
was who stood behind him when the clerk
ejected him from his chair, and she had been
both an ear and eye witness of his sayings
ami doings since he dropped in his present
place at tin; table. So much had his con
duct affected her with a sense of the ridicu
lous, that she could not suppress the smile
that curled her lips; n smile that was felt by
Tilghman as the death blow to all his hojies
of winning her for his bride. With the sub
stance of these hopes went his appetite; and
with that he went also— that is, from thfc
table, without so much as waiting for the des
sert. On the forward deck he ensconced
himself until the boat reached South Amlioy,
N. J., and then took care not to push his
way into the ladies’ car, a species of self de
nial to which he was not accustomed.
Six months afterwards—he did not ven
ture to eall on Miss Wulcot—Tilghman read
the announcement of the yonug lady's mar
riage to a Mr. Walker, and not long after
wards met her in company with her husband.
He proved to be the traveling companion
who had l*een so disgusted with his boorish
conduct when on his last trip to the east.
Our young gentleman hits behaved himself
rather better since when from home; and wc
trust that some other young gentlemen who
are too much in the habit of “ number one”
when they are among strangers will be warn
ed by this mortification, and cease to expose
themselves to the ridicule of well Jired peo
ple.
■Modesty. —There is a resistless charm ia a
modest demeanor, which is worth more than
all the arts with which designing women seek
to captivate the opjKisite sex. Meretricious
attractions may chance to please to-day, but
native excellence, with the simple setting of
modesty will delight to-morrow and next day,
and so on, without interruption. Moreover,
the pleasure wtiich we derive from spurious or
shallow charms is almost certainly followed
by disgust when we come to see thav we have
been imjiosed u|>ou. It is not agreeable to
us to know and feel that we have been chea
ted. The old paradox about “ beauty una
dorned ” has much truth in it.
Goodness. —lf a man bo gracious ami
courteous to strangers, it shows he is a citizen
of the world, and that his heart is no island
cut off from other land, but a continent that
joins to them; if he l>ecompassionate towards
the affliction of others, it.shows that his heart
is like the noble tree, that is wounded itself
when it gives the balm; if he easily pardons
and remits offences, it shows that his mind is
planted above injuries, so that he cannot be
shot; if he be thankful for small benefits, it
shows that he weighs men’s minds, and not
their trash; but, above all, if wo Lav - St.
Paul’s jierfcctiou, that he would wish to bo
an anathema from Christ for the salvation of
his brethren, it shows much of a divine nature,
and a kind of conformity with Christ himself

A correspondent of the "Boston Transcript,”
writing from the city of Moscow, says;—
"There is one gate to the Kremlin, called
the Sjmiss Vorota, or the Gate of the He
deemer. On going through this gale, if the ,
thermometer were thirty degrees below Hero, I
the Euqieror would be compiled to take off
his hat, and keep it off all the way. X o oue i
is allowed to go through covered, and dogs :
are not allowed to pass at all. It is sacred j
on account of a picture of the Saviour which |
hangs above it, and which is said to have
-•worked miracles to save the gate. Many 1
times, when the Tartars attacked the city, I
miraculous clouds obscured the entrance from
tii n m, while the believers were safe within.
In 1812, the French tried to mount up to
the picture to obtain the gold from it, but the
ladder broke in the middle. Enraged at the
failure, they attempted to batter it down with
a cannon, but the cannon would not go off;
so they built a fire over the vent, but lo! the
cannon burst into ten thousand pieces, aud
the French were killed right and left. (You
may rely uj»on the truth of this, because the
dourkttptr told me soil If one attempts to
pass this gate covered, he hears the sentry
cry, ‘The hat! the bat, father!’ aud should he
jiersist, the interior of a Bussian guard-house
; would tie the first interior ids eyes would rest
j upon.”
Peg~ X Frenchman named Delpierre, mem
ber of a learned Society of Philobiblions, has
just published an essay, proving that the story
of Joan of Orleans is unfounded—that she
was not burned by the English, but lived and
had children. If this is true, it is no more
than lias been attempted for the apple-story
of William Tell, which seems t<> have been
the popular adaption to his ease, of a tradi
tion belonging to several other individuals—
that is, the shooting of an ajiple from the
head of his son, an incident wliich is to he
found in the old English ballad—Adam Bell,
Clitn of the Clough, and William of Cloud
eslee. These critical investigators are doing
for the romance of the middle ages what
Niebuhr did for that of early Rome. As re
gards Joan, it is hard to disbelieve wlmt has
been so generally recorded and believed—
her execution at the stake by the Duke of
Bedford.
Yankees Everywhere. A letter received
at the State Deportment, Washington, from
Shanghai, says:
‘•The American clipper ship Young Ameri
ca, left Shanghai privately about six weeks
ago, and went to Japan, with the view and
ex|>ectotion of a lucrative business in taking
the shipwrecked olficeip and men of the Rus
sian frigate Diana to I’etropauioviski or the
Russian coast, butan An er ■ choonerfrom
Sun Francisco happening to touch at Japan
liefore her arrival, made an r n cim ut with

there are but few families in our country but
what need to practice economy in their liv
ing; and they even who can afford extrav

f Hiking. How ctften you an* irresistibly :
drawn to a plain, unassuming woman, whose
soft, silvery tones render her positively at
tractive. Besides, we fancy we can judge of
the character by the voice. The bland, |
smooth fawning tone seems to us to
deceit and hypocrisy, as invariably ns the mu
sical, subdued voice indicates genuine refine
ment. In the social circle how pleasant it is
to hear the sex talk in that low key, which
always characterises the true lady. In the
sanctuary of home, how such a voice soothes
the fretful child and cheers the weary bus
band. How sweetly its cadence float*
through the sick chamber; and nrotfnd the
dying bed, with what solemn melody do they
breathe a prayer for the departing soul. Ah,
yes; a low sweet voice is "an excellent thing
in u woman.”
*ar"Wliat u mifttake,” says Rulwer, "to
onppooe tlmt the passions are strongest in
youth! The passions are not stronger, l*ut
the control over them is weaker. They ore
more easily excited, they arc more violent and
more apparent; hut they have less energy,
less durability, less intense and concentrated
power than in maturer life. In youth, pas
sion succeeds to passion, ami one breaks upon
the other as waves upon a rock, till the heart
frets itself to rejtose. In manhood, the great
deep flows on more calm, bat more profound;
its serenity the proof of the might and terror
of its course, were the wind to blow and the
storm to rise.”
