In the " cheerful dining-room of my bachelor friend Stevenson a select party wii8 assembled to celebrate his birthday. A very animated discussion had been carried on for some time as to whether the first deviation from integrity should be treated with severity or leniency Various were the opinions aud numerous the arguments brought forth to support them. The majority appeared to lean to the side of " crush all offenses in the bud," when a warm-hearted gentleman exclaimed : " Depend upon it, more young people are lost to society fron a first offense being, treated with injudicious severity than from the contrary extreme. Not that I would pass over even the slightest deviation from integrity either in word or deed that would certainly be mis taken kindness. But, ou the other hand, neither would I punish with se verity an offense committed, perhaps, under the influence of temptation, too, that we ourselves may have thoughtless ly placed in the way, in such a manner as to render it irresistible. For in- stance, a lady requires a servant : the girl has liitherto borne a good character, but it is her first place ; her honesty has never yet been put to the test. Her mistress, w ithout thinking of the temp tations to which she is exposing a fellow-creature, is in the habit of leaving small sums of money, generally in cop pers, lying about in her sitting-room. After a while she begins to think that these sums are not always found exactly cs she left them. Suspicion falls on the girl, whose duty it is to clean the room every morning. Her mistress, however, thinks she will be quite convinced be fore she brings forward her accu sation. She counts the money care fully at night, and the next morn ing some is missing. No oue has been in the room but the girl ; her guilt is evident. Well, what does her mistress do? Why, she turns the girl out cf the house at an hour's notice; cannot, in conscience, give her a charac ter; tells all her friends how dreadfully distressed she is; declares there is noth ing but ingratitude to meet with among servants; laments over the depravity of human nature, and never dreams of blaming herself for her wicked yes, it is wicked thoughtlessness In thus con stantly exposing to temptation a youDg, ignorant girl; one, most likely, whose mind, if not enveloped in total darkness, has only an imperfect twilight knowl edge, whereby to distinguish right from wrong. At whose door, I ask," contin ued he, growing warmer, " will the sin lie if that girl sink into the lowest depths of sin and miserj'? Why, at the door of her who, after placing temptation in her very path, turned her into the pitiless world, deprived of that which constitut ed her only means of obtaining her hon est hvelihood her character; and u ( without one effort to reclaim her; with out affording a single opportunity of re trieving the past, and regaining, by fu ture good conduct, the confidence of her employer." " There is, I fear, too much truth in what you say," remarked our benevolent host, who had hitherto taken no part in the conversation; " and it reminds me of a circumstance that occurred- in the earlier part of my life, which, as it may serve to illustrate the subject you have been discussing, I will relate." There was a general movement of at tention, for it was a well-known fact thai no manufacturer in the town was sur rounded with so many old and faithful servants as our friend Stevenson. " In the outset of my business career," said he, " I took into my employment a young man to fill the situation of under clerk; and, according to a rule which I had laid down, whenever a stranger en tered my service his duties were of nature to involve as little responsibilitv as possible, until a sufficient time hail elapsed to form a correct estimate of his character. This young man, whom I shall call Smith, was of a respectabh family. He had lost his father, and had a mother and sisters in some way de pendent upon him. After he had been a short time in my employment it hap pened that my confidential cleik, whos duty it was to receive the money froD the bank for the payment of wages, be ing prevented by an unforeseen circum stance from attending at the propei time, sent the sum required by Smith My confidence was so great in my head clerk, who had been long known to me. that I was not in the habit of recularlv counting the money when brought to me; but, as on -this occasion it had parsed through other hands, I thought it right to do so. Therefore, calling Smith back as he was leaving my cojant-ing-house, I desired him to wait a few minutes, and proceeded to ascertain whether it was quite correct. Great was my surprise and concern on finding that there was a considerable deficiency. '"From whom,' said I, 'did you re ceive this money ?' " He replied, ' From ?Ir. , nam ing my confidential clerk. " It is strange,' said I, looking stead ily at him. ' But this money is incorrect, Land it is the first time I have found it so.' He changed countenance, and his eye fell before mine : Imt he answered with tolerable composure, ' that it was as he had received it.' ".'It is vain,'. I replied, 'to attempt to impose upon me, or to endeavor to cast suspicion upon one whose character f r the strictest honestv and undeviating integrity is so well established. Now, I am perfectly convinced that you have taken this mony and at this moment it is in your possession ; aud I think the evidence against you would bs thought sufficient to justify me in dismissing you immediately from my service. But you ire a very young man ; your conduct has, I believe, been hitherto perfectly cor rect, and I am willing to afford you an opportunity of redeeming the past. All knowledge of this matter rests between ourselves. Candidly confess, therefore. the error of which you have been guilty; restore what you have so dishonestly taken ; endeavor by your future good conduct to deserve my confidence and respect, and this circumstance shall never transpire to injure you.' " The pojr fellow was deeply affected, i In a voice almost in uticu'ate with emo tion ho acknowledged his guilt, and said that, having frequently seen seen me receive the money without counting it, on being trusted with it himself the idea Lad flashed across his mind that he might easily abstract some without incurring susjpeion, or, at all eventa, without there being sufficient evidence to justify it ; that, being in distress, the temptation had proved stronger than the power of resistance, and he had yielded. " ' I cannot now,' ha continued, ' prove how deeply your forbearance has touched m : time alone "ui "how that it has not been misplaced.' "He left ni to resume his duties. "Days, weeks and months passed away, during wtucn 1 scrutinized ni conduct with the greatest anxiety, while . at the same time I carefully guarded against any appearance of suspicious watchfulness, and with delight I ob served that so far my experiment had succeeded. The greatest regularity and attention, the utmost devotion to my in terests, marked his business habits, and this without display, for his quiet and humble deportment was from that time remarkable. 'At length, finding his conduct invar iably marked by the utmost openness and plain dealing, my confidence in him was so far restored that, on a vacancy occurring in a situation of greater trust and emolument than the one he had hitherto filled, I placed him in it, and never had I the slightest reason to re lent of the part I had acted toward him. Not only had I the pleasure of reflecting that I had, in all probability, saved a fellow-creature from a continued course if vice, and consequent misery, and af forded him the opportunity of becoming respectable man and a useful member jf society, but I had gained for myself in indefatigable servant a faithful and constant friend. For years he served me with the greatest fidelity and devo tion. His character for rigid, nay, even scrupulous honesty, was so well known that ' as honest as Smith ' became a proverb among his acquaintances. One aoming I missed him from hi accus-" :omed place, and, upon inquiry, learned that he was detained at home by indis position. Several days elapsed, and itill he was absent ; aud, upon calling at Uis house to inquire after him, I found he family in great distress on his ac count. His complaint had proved ty phus fever of a malignant kind. From almost the commencement of his attaek tie had, as his wife (for he had been wme time married)informed me, lain in state of total unconsciousness, from srhiah he had roused only to the ravings of delirium, and that the physician gave little hope of his recovery For some days he continueu in the same state ; at length a message was brought me, say ing that Mr. Smith wished to see me, the messenger adding that Mrs. Smith hoped I would come as soon as possible, for she feared her husband was dying. I immediately obeyed the summons. "On entering his chamber I found the whole of his family assembled to take farewell of him they so tenderly loved. As soon as he perceived m? he motioned for me to approach near to him, and, taking my hand in both of his, he turned toward me his dying counte nance, full of gratitude and affection, and said, 'My dear master, my best earthly friend, I have sent for you that I may give you the thanks and blessing of a dying man for all your goodness to me. To your generosity and mercy I owe it that I have lived useful and re spected, that I die lamented and happy. To you 2 owe it that I leave my chil dren a name unsullied by crime, that in after years the blush of shame shall never tinge their cheeks at the memory of their father. Oh, God !' he continued, 'Thou who hast meted to others, do Thou mete unto him. Then, turning to his family, he said : '"My beloved wife and children, I intrust you to the care of that Heavenly Tnient who has said, "Leave the father less children unto Me, and I will pre serve them alive, and let thy widows trust in rhe," and you, my dear master, will, I know, be to them as you have been to me a guide, protector and friend.' " That' continued the kind old man,, looking on us with glistening eyes, "though mixed with sorrow, was one of the happiest moments of my life. As f s'tood by the bedside of the dying man and looked around upon- his children growing up virtuous, intelligent and up right, respecting and honoring, Ss much as they loved, their father : when I eraw his wife, though overcome with grief for the loss of a teTid-r and beloved hus band, yet sorrowing not as one without hope, but, even in the moment of agony, deriving comfort in the belief that she should meet him again in that world where "adieus and farewells are sounds unknown ;". when I listened to his fer vent expressions of gratitude and saw him calrnlv, awaiting ' the inevitable stroke, trusting in the mercy of God and at peace with his fellow-men ; and when I thought what the reverse of all this might have been crime, misery, a disgraceful and dishonored life, and, perhaps, a shameful and violent death, had I yielded to the first impulse of in dignation, I felt a happiness which no words can express. We are told that there is more joy among the angels of God over one sin ner that repenteth than over ninety and nine just persons that need no re pentance. With such a joy as we may imagine theirs did I rejoice over poor Smith, as I closed his eyes, and heard the attendant minister in fervent tones exclaim : ' Blessed are the dead that die in the Lord ; yea, saith the spirit, for they rest from their labors and their works do follow them.' " My friends, I am an old man. Dur ing a long and eventful career in busi ness, I have had intercourse with almost every variety of temper and disposition, ind with many degrees of talent, but have Dever found reason to swerve from the principle with which I set out in life, to temper 'justice with mercy.'" Such was the story of our friend. And I believe there was not one in that company but returned home more dis posed to judge leniently of the failings of his fellow-creatures, and, as far as lay in h's power, to extend to all who might fall into temptation that mercy which, under similar circumstances, ho would wish shown to himself, feeling " that it is more blessed to save than to destroy." THE TREATMENT OF WOMEN. It fell in the way of Malthua in his celebrated work on population to search in the accounts of travelers for those causes which operate, in different coun tries of the world, to check the progress and to limit the numbers of mankind. Foremost among these is vice, and fore most among the vices is that most un natural one, of the cruel treatment of women. " In every part of the world," sayB Mai thus, " one of the most general characteristics of the savage is to de spise and degrade the female sex. Among moat of the tribes in America their condition is bo peculiarly grievous that servitude is a name too mild to de scribe their wretched state. A wife is no better than a beast of burden. VVhile the man passes his days in idleness and amusement, the woman is condemned to incessant toil. Tasks are imposed upon her without mercy, and services are re ceived without complacence or grati tude. There are some districts in Amer ica where this state of degradation has been so severely felt that mothers have destroyed their female infants, to de Liver them at once from a life in which they were doomed to such a miserable slavery." It is impossible to find for this most vicious tendency any place among the unities of nature. There is nothing like it among the beasts. With them the equality of the sexes, as re gards a!lthe enjoyments as well as all the work of life, is the universal rule. And among those of them in which social instincts have been specially im planted, and whos9 systems of polity are like the most civilized polities of men, the females ot the race are treated with a strange mixture of love, of loyal ty, and of devotion. If, indeed, we con sider the necessary and inevitable re sults of the habit prevalent among sav age men to maltreat and degrade their women its ejects upon the constitu tion, and character, and endurance of children we cannot fail to see how grossly unnatural it is, how it must tend to the" greater and greater degradation of the race, and how recovery from this downward path must become more and more difficult or impossible. But, vi cious, destructive, unnatural as this habit is, it is not the only one o r the worst of similar character which prevail among savage men, A horrid catalogue comes to our remembrance when we think of them polyandry, infanticide, cannibalism, deliberate cruelty, syste matic slaughter connected with warlike passions or with religious customs. Nor are these vices, or the evils result ing from them, peculiar to the savage state. Some of them, indeed, more or less changed and modified in form, at tain a rank luxuriance in civilized com munities, corrupt the very btmes and marrow ef society, and have brought powerful nations to decay and death.
