' Of human hopes and fears,
Of human amtles and tear a."
Id all the tones that singers use
They tang through all the years.
" You sing brare songs. of war," she said;
"You sing the hopes of youth;
You sing the might of truth;
You sing of stars, of roses red.
And maids that love, in sooth.
" You sing me well of Joy," she said,
And better yet of pain
Of hearts that loved in vain.
Of lovers lost or cod or dead.
Of hopes like b'asted grain."
She said, u Yea, even of things divine
Full loftily you sing ;
And but one gracious thing
Have you forgot, Oh ! singers mine.
To tune on pipe or string."
" Of love that taught to woo or wed.
Of love that died for othora,
Or knitted friends like brothers,
You sing full well ; and jet,' she said,

THE FIIiT Ol I'ENSK.
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
" 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
" 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
" ' 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
'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
" 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
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.
