DANIEL BRYAN'S OATH. ol Daniel liryan had lioon a lawyer nf etui-iiuncc, luit had I'allen, thrntiph intoxication, to bepjjary and a dyiti conilitinn. 15iyan had innmcd in his better days the fister ol' .Moses l'flton. At leiijith all luipi's were uiven ttp. Week al'ler week would the fallen man lio di link nn tho flour, and tint a day of teal .sobriety nuuked hisfuuic. Idoubt if Mich another ease was known. lie was ton low for cuuvivialty. for those with whom ho would have :isoeiated would not. think uilli liiui. All done in nflieo and ehiiuiber, lio r-tilj coiitiiitioil to drink, and even his veiy life seemed the nflVpi inir of tho jug. In eaily 801111'.', Mn'os hVlton had a rill tojjoto Ohio, lief'oie he M:t nut he visited hi itel. Ileofiei'od to take her with him, but she would not 1:0. "Hut whv May hero?" urtred tho brother. "You an; filling away ami disease is upon you. Why bhould you live with such a liiutc?" ' "Hush, Miws, speak not," rtnswornd tho wife, keepiiif: back lier tears. "I will not IciiM' him now, but ho will won leave 1110 heeannot live much lonirer." At that uiomciit. Daniel entered the apirt-ment. He lookeij like a wanderer from the tomb, lie had his hat on and bis jus in bis band. "Ah, Moses, how are yo?" ho t'.isjied, for he sould not speak plainly. 'I ho visitor looked at him for a few moments in silence. Then as his fbaturus assumed a cold, stern expression, ho said in a stiouitly emphasized tone : "Daniel liryan, L have been your best, friend but one. My sister is an anjrol, though matched with a demon. I luno lovcd you, Daniel, as I never loved man before; you are generous, noule, and kind ; hut I hate you now, lor you arc a pcrlect dovil lnoirnatc. Look at that woman. Sho is niv sister sho illicit now live wjth me in comfort, only she will not doit while you arc alive: when you die she will eome to 1110. Thus do 1 pray that uod will soon civo I10r.1n.vs to niv keeping. Now, Daniel, 1 do sincerely hope that tho lnst liitelliircnee that reaches mo IVuin my native place after I have readied my new home, may be that you aro lioatl. atop aUoscs, 1 can retorm yet. "Vou cannot. It is beyond your power. You havo had inducements cuouch to have reformed half tho sinners of creation, and you are lower now than ever before. (Jo and die, sir, as toon as you can, for the- mo ment that sees you thus, shall not find 1110 atnona the mourner?." Bryan's eyosfla.-hed and ho drew himself proudly up. (Jo, ho said in a tono of tho old sure-ami. "(3o to Ohio, and I'll send you news. (Jo, sir, and watch tho post. I will yet make you take back your words, "Never, D.miel Bryan, never." "You shall! 1. swear it!" With these words Daniel liryan hurled tho jug into the fire place, and while yet 11 thousand fragments were flying over the floor, ho strode from tho house. Mmy sank fainting 011 the floor. Moses bore her to a bed, and havm-; called in a neighbor, huiricd away, for tho stage was waiting. For u inonth Daniel hovered over tho Blink of tho grave, but ho did notdie. "Ono gill of brandy will savo yon," said the doctor, who saw that tho abrupt removal of stimulants from a system that for long venrs had almost subsisted on nothing else, was neatly sure to prove fatal. "You can surely taku a gill and not take any more." "Aye," gasped tho poor man, "tnkoagill ani break my oath f Moses 1'olton shall never hear that brandy and rum ever killed 1110 ! If tho want of it can kill mo, then let 111c die. But I won't die ; I'll live till Moes l-'elton shall eat his words." Ile did live. An iron will conquered tho the lnesM-nger death fcent Daniel liryan lived. Fur 0110 mouth ho could uut walk without help. Mary helped him. A year passed away, and Moses Feltnn ictMrncd to Vermont, lio entered tho com l house atBuijington, and Daniel Biyau was on the floor, pleading for a young man who had been indicted for perjury. Folton started with surprise. Never beforo had such torrents of clofucnco poured from his lips. Tho caso was (.dven to tho jury, and the youth was acquitted. Tho successful counsel turned from tho court room and met Moses Felton. They hhook hands, but did not speak. When they reached a spot where none others could hear thoin Bryan stopped. "Moses," ho said, "do you remember tho words you stioko to 1110 u year ago?" "I do, Daniel." Will you now tako tlietu back unsay thi'iu now and forever?" "Yes, with all my heart.' "Then I am in part repaid." "And what must bo tho rcmaiuder of tho payment?" asked Moses." "1 must din an honest, unperjured man ! Tho oath that has bound mo thus far was made for life." That evening Mary Bryan was among tho hnppieft nf thn family. A RICH STORY. In one of the small interior towns of Now England, licro the superstition of our ancestors still possess a hold 011 tho people, thu fiicts ocrimod n few years h'iiico of which the following hi a true narration : An honest farmer inid liH family preparing to celebrate Thanksgiving at his wife's father's, in an ndjucont town, were hutiied and confused ( xlienicly on tho day p recoil-ing tliat festival, by the multiplicity ol'things which must bo done before they could leave homo with safety. The houso was lo ho "banked up" and tho gleanings of tho harvest cabbage, turnips and so forth, put iutolho cellar, that tho external exlranco thereto might bo closed for thu season. Having cariied in the vegetable, thu boy were dispatched to the barn for straw to fill tho passago with, whilu tho good man himself was busied on tho opposite hide of tho houe. 1 An old ram, the honored patiiarch of a hirge Hock of sheep kept on tho farm, hav-iing got a tasto of tho scattered cabbage, (leaves unobserved entered tho cellar and 'silently continued his feast. Thoavenuu! ! (hrouith which ho had entered was imme diately closed up, and all the necessary work land arrangements being completed, tho j larger boys and gills sot out on foot in high 'gicu, 1110 uug running aim uari.ing ueioro. tiicm. .Soon after, tho parents and their little ones, having put out the fire and fastened, tho doors and windows to keep out thieves, btaitcd 011 tho same destination On thu afternoon of the day following the festival, tho family rcturned'hoinc, accompanied by some young cousins, "fjome of their youthful neighbors of both sexes, were invited in, and a meiiy Thanksgiving ia-rottsal was in full tidu of successful opcratiu, when ono of the boys, who had been sent into the cellar with a little two-wick candle, which gave ju-t enough light to make darkness visible, to draw cider, ran hack into tho room, with cycsglaiing wildly, uttering tho half sufl'oe iting exclamation : "Tho devil inn thocellar!" "I'ooh." said the father, "you havo only been frightened by your own shadow; give 1110 tho light." Saving this, bo seized tho candle leaving the candlestick fast in the bund of the boy and boldly lushed to ihu cellar stairs, but before ho had descended half the stops, the largo saucer eyes and enormous horns of the ram caused him to retreat as much terrified as his son, exclaiming : ".Sure enough, tho dovil is in the cellar!'' The good man seized tho great bible, and attempted to read, but the caudle sputtered, burned blue, and threw such a feeble light on the sacred pages, and lhabook ttenibled so much in tho hands of the reader, that ho e.iuld not di.stjnanish one word from another, 'flic little children cried and clung to their mother; the gills nestled elo-e to their favorite swains, ami thc whole house was shaken with thu agitation of its half demented in habitants. One bright thought, however, occurred and a tucssenirer was sent tor the minister to come and "lay tho devil." Tho parson, 11 man more celebrated for L'ond untitle, piety, and credulity, than for talent and lieioisin, slipped a small bililo into his pocket, put on his baud and surplice, that ho misht anneal- as formidable to his great antagonist as possible, and hastened to thetvliolol hisdistiesscil panslioneis. Oncoming lo thu house, the reverend man was hailed as a deliverer, and implored by at least a dozen voices at the sanio moment, to drive the devil away. But few moments weie lost in asking questions which no onn could answer, liofiiro thn narson pushed forwaiilasa leader, with tho mi mo penurious light, into tho cellar, thu most courageous of the company keeping close behind him. lie reached the foot ofiho stairs, tho eyes of fire, tho shadowy outline of tho enormous horns, magnified ten-fold at least, by tho terror of those that beheld them, removed all doubt if any had existed in his mind as to the infernal nature of the being with whom he had to contend. The divine instantly fell on his knees, and. with uplifted hands, began to pray in bis most fervent manner. Tho ram not understanding the pious man's motives, but sup- posing by tho motion of his hands that he was daring him to a butting contest, made a pass with all his might, at his suppo-cil adversary, hut deceived by his swelling dimensions of his drapery, missed the slender body of thopiie.st, and, drnwing hastily back to renew the assault, hooked 0110 of his horns into thu belt of thosurplico and pulled the priest with him into tho cellar. While thus in tho power of his victorious foe. ho lost hope as it regarded himself, and tho natural benevolence of his disposition bur.st forth in tho exclamation : "Brethren, tako caro of yourselves ; tho dovil has got 1110." This exhortation was better obeyed than any he had delivered from the pulpithis fiiends all fled and left him to his fate. Among the company was a shrewd young fanner, who had, from the first, supposed tho liend to. be somo domostiu animal, but being a lover of fun and, willing to see a comedy, kept his thoughts to himself and pretended to sympathize with others in their tears, llu thought it time to interfere, and, snatching a pitch pjno knot from tho blaz-ingfire, expressed hisdetcrinination to rescue tho preacher or perish in the attempt. "Don't, don't!" shouted several. "What does the devil caro for fire?" "Take along tho bible if you will go!" suggested another. But, unheeding tho suggestion and thu manifestations, of concern for his safety, ho pushed into the cellar, seized tho aniiiial by 0110 of his bonis and dragged tho struggling ram up stairs', calling to theastonisbod parson, "Follow mo !" Tnu honored devil was led in triumph, followed by tho Ecclesiastic, in the midst of thu company, A momentary silence and hanging down of heads ensued, but tho past scene was too ludicrious to admit of sober reflection, and loud peals of jaughtor burst forth from ev.cry side, during which tho ram was turned out at tho door, tho parson absented himself without ceremony, and thn sports of the evening wero resumed with better spirits than before. Night the Poor Man's Friend. Night luvels all artificial distinctions. Thu bugger on his pallet of straw snores as soundly as a king on his bed of down. Night kind, gentle, soothing, reficshing night the earthly paradise of tho slave, the sweet oblivion of tho worn soul, tho nurse of romance, of devotion; how tho great panting heart nf society yearns for tho return of night and rest. Sleep is God's special gift to (ho poor; for tho great there is no timo fixed for repose; quiet they havo none; and instead of quiet jy awaiting tho approach of events, thoy fret and lupine, and starve, sleep, and chidu the hours, as if to-morrow wero big with tho fa to of some great horcaftur. Thu torrent of events goes roaring past, keeping o igcr expectation tiptoe, and drives timid sluinbcraway. .Somo say that the quickest way to destroy "weeds," is to many a widow, Jt is a most delightful speoies of husbandry, - Night the Poor Man's Friend.

"Let them that 1'e.ir the Lord" that is, all ch'iistians "now say that His mercy en-dureth foievcr." Thus sang thu royal son ofJesse. He was as pious as he was poetic. Hear him aga "'lhy loving kindii'-.-s, O Lord, is beli tin: foru lninu eyes, as l look upon thy dealings with myself and with the wonderful kingdom over which I havo U? e.lllod to lule. Therefore, l!le-.s' r ho Lord, O, my soul and forget not all His benefits: who forgiveth all thine iniquities ; who hcaleth all thy diseases; who rcdeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with loving kindness and tender mercies." Such a crown, unlike those composed of cosily genis by human hands, can never cause pain to the head or heart of the wearer ; but it will give contentment that, "Walks the sunny gl.ule And Ipcls a bliss spring o'er the 5oul lleyond I ho wealth oi'Ki iii!? to purchase." For, true content is a crown that loyalty seldom wears. David knew this, and, hence, he adds ."Lot them exalt tho L'ird in thu congregation of thu people, and praiso Him iu thu assembly of thu Lldcis. It is better to trust iu the Lord than to put confidence in man, or in Princes." There is certainly something truly grand in such grateful, reflections. Indeed, it seems to mc the picture reaches the sublime, as iu fancy wo view these mightv men of God standing before the assembled thousands of Isiaultjieir breast swelling with the love, and their faces shining with the light of heaven reaching with ono hand into tho future, and with tho other into the past, and bringing together from each tho sensible evidences of God's loving favor to his people in rich memos enjoyed and iu Mill i ichor piomisus to be fulfilled. Such sight, I say, was enough to raio the soul of every considerate beholder into tho sublime of devotion and fill his heart with thankfulness ami his lips with praise. As for ourselves, horu convened, wo are not prophets. Wo.lay no claim to inspiration. We cannot divine the futuic we are not able oven to tell what a day may bring forth. Yet, as Christians, wu can reflect on and feel Ihu goodness of the Loul to us all in' the past, as wu unite and lift up our voices in thu old song that thus begins : "When all thy mercies, o my God, .My ilslnysoul i.urvc.s Transported with tho view, I'm lost In wonder, love uud praise." So that if thu ancient prophets had tjio.ad-vantage of us in that noucr of niedietion. wu havo the advantage of them in scono it to griiti v their tin- giving nain or alarm to they use it exclusively to the neglect of the oppo-ite andinoio common functions of re- flections, which related to what hud beat, as inuiiiii;. um iu .wiiiL ri,fis in-rjc uiu loriuer mis. .Tin.,.. .1..
