" WHAT IS TO BECOME OF SAM?" It was generally supposed that Sam was what is called 'deficient.' As to his own fnmily, they were sure of it ; at all events, they treated him as if ho were so. Not that they were unkind to him ; on the con trary, they were all very fond of 'poor old Sam ;' but it seemed to be taken for grunted that whatever he said wn not worth uoticiug, and that almost every tiling ho did was to be made fun of more or less. He was, in fact, the family butt, though the shafts were, as a rule, so tipped with good nnt tire as not to hurt his feelings. Of course, there were some patent reasons for all this. To begin with there was something manifestly pe culiar or backward iu his mental development. He never could learn like other boys, and ail masters had shaken their heads at him. Then there was a heavy comicality in his face and an awkwardness in his gait, together with a stunted growth, all of which betokened au abnormal condition of Nature, and furnished some excuse to his brothers and sisters for regarding him as an oddity in their midst. At the same time it was yet more excusable in Sam himself, and far more account able, that, being thus accustomed from his childhood (and he was now about nineteen) to be treated as if he were little better than a fool, he settled down more and more to being one. Hardly ever did ho at tempt to say or do anything in serious earnest, since almost every thing he did or said was treated as a sort of joke. There was one exception to thi. Mothers always know best how to deal with the weak in the flock, and Sam's mother never laughed at him, and never despaired of him. 'What is to become of Sam?' his father would eay, 'he'll never earn his own living;' aud his mother would qui etly answer. 'Wait a bit, my dear; there is more in him, perhaps, than wo think, but it wants to be drawn out, and I doubt if we are actiug wisely in laughing at him as we do.' She said 'we,' good soul, but that was only her discreet way of put ting it. Now, Sam had a sister, Mary, of whom he was especially fond. Per haps it was because she was the sister nearest to him in age, but It was more likely because she placed a little more confidence in him than the others did ; it wasn't much, but it was more than he got from any of the rest. He would do anything for Mary, and when a certain Mr. St. Logor in the noighborhood-(ook a fancy to her it was amusing to sec how Sam resented the engagement. This Mr. St. Leger had lately come into the neighborhood, no one knew where from; but he had plenty of money and very agreeable manners, and was a general favorite with the Frere family. Sam, however, never liked him from the first, aud when at length ho became Mary Frcre's accepted suitor, Sam's aversion to him became intense. It must be owned that Mr. St. Leger took no pains to win him over to a more friendly slate of mind. He had fallen at once into the habit of mak ing light of the poor fellow, which, as we havo seen, was the family custom, and, when he saw how Sam shrank from him, had certainly gone out of his way to poke fun at him. It was an amusement aud quite in accordance with the general practice. The day was fixed for the wed ding, and tho Sunday had arrived when, iu deference to Mary'B partic ular wish, though very much against Mr. St. Leger's inclination, the banns were to be published in church. The Freres were all in their place, a great square pew in front of the pulpit. The names were read out in due course. Mary was recovering from the elrctric shock of hearing them ; tho villagers wero interchang ing glances, some even cautiously rising a little to peep into the squaro pew, when a voice was heard all over the church, sayiug in tho most emphatic way, 'I forbid the banns.' Surprise wa9 on every face, but it quickly gave way to a sense of the ludicrous as Sam was seen standing up iu the middle of the pew, looking the clergyman steadily in the face, as much as to say, 'There now; get over that if you can !' The clergy man was so amused that he had to rush on with the service to prevent an unseemly display, while Sam's kindred in the square pew were in every attitudo of painfully restrain ed amusement. And there he stood unabashed and defiant, until his father plucked him by the arm and made him ait down. But none of them for ono moment thought it wa9 anything more than a very unaccountable freak of 'poor old Sam's.' No sooner was the service over than be was assailed on all sides for an explanation. Two only were serious about it his father and Mary. 'What is the meaning of this sir?' said his father, steruly: 'what could have possessed you to make yourself so ridiculous?' 'ne has got a wife already,' re plied Sam, doggedly. 'Who has?' was the geueral excla mation. 'St. Leger.' 'Who told you so?' 'Tom Tyler !' Tom Tyler was the village letter-carrier. There was a shout of laughter at this picco of information. 'When did Tom Tyler tell you this?' 'Yesterday. He brought a letter for Mrs. St. Leger.' Another shout of laughter greeted this ; but Mary looked very grave, while her father said that, of course, the latter was for St. Leger's mother, of whom he had more than once 9pokon. So Sam was sharply re buked for listening to Tom Tyler's idle tales, and ordered to hold his tonguo. 'You'll have St. Leger try his borse-whip across your shoul ders, if you don't mind,' cried his eldest brother, and they all laughed again ; but Sam was very unlike himself, and did not joiu iu the laugh, but maintained a grave com posure they had never noticed in him before. Nor was it a laughing matter somewhero else. The news of that morning's interruption flew apace, with various additions and amend ments. Thus improved upon, they reached the ears of Mr. St. Leger, who lived bnt a few miles ofl', and they created a profound sensation, so much so that instead of spending the afternoon with tho Freres, as expected, he took himself ofl', aud was never seen by them again. It was discovered that Tom Tyler's version had been correct after all. Good riddance for Mary Frere; but a heart trifled with and wronged can never quite recover itself. For a time Sam was almost rever ently treated at home. They felt the force of his simple explanation, why he had chosen such a singular way of uttering his suspicions, that it was 'because they would only have laughed at him if he had told them,' and were a little ashamed of them selves. Bnt tho old habit revived after awhile, as old habits, both family and personal, so easily do, and Sam's brains were held as cheap as ever, except by Mary, who was drawn to him more than ever, aud by his mother, who never ceased to ponder in her heart, as only mothers do, the meaning of that display of Arm intelligence and almost fierce affection. 'I'll tell you what it means,' said hor brother to Mrs. Frere one day, when she was talking to him about it he was a lawyer in London, old John Quicksolt, of Gray's Inn, who could see a thing as shrewdly as most people 'it means this, that Sam has got a heart aud a head, but his head is more out of the way than usual, and can only be got at thro' his heart, like au old-fashioned bed room that can only be reached by going through another. Look here, sister, I like amazingly that story of tho banns it's grand. Not that there was anything clever in what ho did, just the reverse, it might have been a most stupid mistake; but this is what takes my fancy so, the firmness of purpose, a far higher quality of mind than mere cleverness that could make the poor fellow face everything he did for the sake of the sister he loved. There must bo something in one who could run the gauntlet like that, when his heart was onco fairly unlocked ; and I think I have tho key.' 'I always thought so,' cried Mrs. Frere, greatly delighted. 'Well, let me try. I'll run away with Sam, aud mako a lawyer of him. What do you say?' Tho grinning was epidemic round the table after it was known that Sam was to bo a lawyer. His brothers aud sisters could hardly look at first without smiling; it did seem so droll, so absurdly contrary to every notion they entertained of him. Had he sat before them in full naval costume as Admiral of the Channel Fleet, it would hardly have struck them as beiug more unlooked-for and preposterous. Uncle John's presence saved Sam from collective bantering, though the old lawyer was too wise to make any fuss about the matter; but when Sam was alone with his brothers and sisters, he had a hard time of it, though all was, as usual, in perfect good humor. At first Sam had, of course, to go through the usual drudgery of a lawyer's office, in which, if it be possible for anyone to shiue, he cer tainly did not. His blunders were awful, and provoked the wrath or ridicule, a9 the case may be, of his fellow clerks, who were all well seasoned and somewhat ancient men. But his uncle never found fault with him. The most he said when some frantic bungle was bro't to his notice, was, 'Sam, do this over again; you know you can do it a great deal better than that.' And, sure enough, it was done better the second time. In short, his uncle began with and, in spile of every discouragement, persevered in the plan of trusting him. Aud by de grees he found that the more be trusted him the better he did, and tho more he treated him as if there were something in him the more ho got out of him. Had Sam nothing in him to begiu with, the plan could not have answered; but this was just what his uncle believed, namely that there was something in him, but that It had been systematically laughed down and sat upon from superficial cousiderations, aud that it could only be brought out by a total change of external influence and treatment. Aud now his pow ers began to show themselves and to expand, just as a shrub that has beon stunted and blackened from want of room and uncongenial soil begins to throw out vigorous shoots when transplanted to ground that suits it, and when it has space to grow. 'Sam,' said Mr. Quicksett, one day, 'wo shall all of ns be away the whole afternoon, and must leave you in charge of the office. If that fellow Choker should come, mind, you're not to let him see anything.' As the fates would have it, Choker did come. Perhaps Quicksett knew he was coming. Possibly Mr. Cho ker, who was a sharp and not very scrupulous professional opponent of his, had made himself aware of the unprotected state of the office in Gray's Inn, and he brought with him a man that looked every inch a prize fighter. 'Is Mr. Quicksett in No? Well, it's of no consequence. I merely called to see as a matter of form one or two documents in Smith v Jones.' 'Then I mu?t trouble vou to call again when Mr. Quicksett is in.' 'Quite right, young man, said Choker, approvingly; 'that's the right thing to 6ay iu ordinary casea; but, you see, this is not an ordinary case. 'We've got an order of tho court to inspect these documents.' Where is it?' said Sam, bluntly. 'You've got it with you, haven't you?' said Choker, carelessly, turn ing to his companion. The young athlete fumbled in his pockets and declared with great apparent vexa tion, that he must havo forgotten to bring it. 'I don't believe you've got it to bring,' said Sam. 'We'll have no nonsense, sir,' cried Choker, in a passion ; 'at your poril refuse to show uq what we want to see,' and the two men advanced on Sam in a threatening way. But, little as he was, he never budged an inch. 'I tell you what it is,' he said, with all the coolness imaginable, 'if you two don't leave the office this minute, I'll send for a constable.' There was no need to attempt that difficult operation. They were only trying it on, and with an affectation of injured innocence Mr. Choker and his satellite withdrew. On another occasion, after Sam had been some months in the office, his uncle came out of his room one day, and bade him sq down at once to Judge Chambers' and look after some cae that wa? to come on there. It is a thing that requires you to have your wits about you, to do that, for you come face to face with a shrewd Judge, who cannot toler ate a fool. The old clerks in Mr. Quicksett's office appeared paralyz ed with astonishmont at such an order; and one of them ventured, when partially recovered, to suggOBt a mistake on Mr. Quicksett's part. 'It's rather a difficult case, sir, if yon remember,' he urged. 'All right, Muslay,' was tho cheery reply; 'I know what I am about. The best way to learn to swim is to be pitched neck-and-heels into deop water.' The suspensowas great among the ancients while Sara was away; but he came back in duo time, and re ported that the case had come on before the Judge, and that his Lord ship had made an order in their client's favor. 'Did he ask you any questions?' inquired Mustay. "Ob, yes! aud I auswered them,' said Sam ; but he did not mention, for he did not know it, nor will it be men tioned in tho memoir of the learned Judge when it comes out, that, accustomed as his Lordship was to ready answers, it had actually cross ed his mind for a moment that the funny little lawyer's clerk would make a capital witness he was so ready and said neither more nor less than was wanted. Whether a good witness would always make a good lawyer we need not decide; but it is certain, that, in course of time, Sam made a very good one indeed, ne was one of those not uncommon cases where supposed 'deficiency' is superficial only, and where a far more grave deficiency is to be found in those who, by constantly laughing at it, run the risk of making it a real life long imbecility. Sam's relatives never laughed at him again after the first visit he paid thenr, though they often laughed with him, for bis drollery was inexhaustible. He never married, but his'sister Mary kept house for him, aud was perhaps a great deal happier than she would have been anywhere else. lot Whip. The following has been handed us for publication by one who is greatly interested in the proper trcatmeut ol children in regard to their govern ment: A parent who doesn't know how to govern a child without whipping it ought to surrender the care of that child to some wiser person. Sports men once thought it was necessary to lash their dogs in training them for the field. They know now that the whip should never be used. Horsemen once thought that it was necessary to whip colts to teach thorn to start aud stop at the word, and pull steadily. They know now that an apple is better than the lash, and a caress better than a blow. If dogs and horses can be thus educa ted without punishment, what is there in our children which makes it necessary to slap and pound them ? Have thoy less intelligence? have they cold hearts ? We have heard many people say, "If wo were to bring up another child, we would never whip it." They arc wise, but a little too late. Instead of God doing 90 little for children that thoy niUBt be whippod into goodness, he has done so much for them that even whipping can't ruin them that is, as a rule. But, alas, there are many exceptions to this rule. Many chil dren are of such quality that a blow makeB them cowardly, or reckless, or deceitful, or permanently ugly. Whipping breaks theirspirit. Whip ping makes them hate their parent?. Whipping makes home distasteful makes The boya runaways, makes the girls seek" happiness anywhere aud anyhow. Whippiug is barbar ous. Dou't whip. Golden Rule. True Economy ofL.IIV, The truo economy of human life looks at ends rather than incidents, aud adjusts expenditures to a moral 6calo of values. T)e Quincey pic tures a woman sailing over the water, awakening out of sleop to find her necklace untied aud one end hanging over the stream, while pearl after pearl drops from the string .beyond her reach; while she clutchos at the one just falling, ano ther drops beyond recovery. Out days drop one after another by our carelessness, like pearls from a string, a3 we sail tho sea of life. Prudence requires a wise husband ing of time to see that none of these golden coins are spent for nothing. The waste of time is a more serious loss than the extravagances against which there is such acclaim. Thcro are thousands who do noth ing but loungo and carouse from morning till midnight drones in the human hive, who consume and waste the honey that honest work ers wear themselves ont in making, and insult the day by their dissipa tion and debauch. There are tcu thousand idle, frivolous creatures who are doing nothing but consume and waste and wear what honest hands accumulate, and incite others to live as useless and worthless lives as thoy do. Wore every man and woman an honest toiler, all would have an abundance, and half of every day for recreation and culture. The expenditure of a fow dollars in mat ters of taste ia a small matter in comparison with the wasting of mouths and yoars by thousands who have every advantage society can offer, and exact as a right every privilege it affords. A paragraph is going the rounds of tle paper9 in reference to one of Whitficlds remarkB to his congrcga tion.1' It induces us to relate what we saw with our own eyes and heard with onrown ears. We were listening to an eccentric old clergy man in Ohio. He was speaking of the wickedness of his people, their danger, &c. "My friends," said he "if you do not repent, you will go to hell just as sure as I catch that fly," at tho same titno making a pass at a fly that had perched upon the open Bible. The old man slowly opened his hand, finger by finger, but no fly was found. He looked down and around upon his congregation for a minute, and then exclaimed, "Why, you poor devils, there Is some chance for you yet." C. V.(.N. Y) Gazette.
