_fJltscfHanfows ' BIBLE CLERKS. We somewhere read of an incident that transpired some years ago in Boston, which beautifull y illustrates the importance of decision on the part of young men who would establish a character, and become useful members of society. We will present the substance of the incident. The narrator subsequently became a clergyman, as did other leading members of the party. At the time this incident occurred, he was a clerk in Boston, and roomed with two young men, also clerks.' The first Sunday morning, during the intervening hours, from getting up, to the hour for church service, he felt a desire to get his Bible, which his mother had given him on leaving home, from his trunk, and read it, as he had been accustomed to do _' on Sabbath mornings; but he feared the ridicule of his room mates. Such, however, was the a<»ony of his feelings, that he went to his trunk for the purpose, but his dread of ridicule overpowered him. After a few minutes he again...

ROVER AND HIS LITTLE MASTER. . " Come, Eoverl" said Harry, as he passed a fine old Newfoundland dog that lay on a mat at the door; " come, Eover! I am going down to the river to sail my boat, and I want you to go with me." Rover opened his large eyes, and looked lazily at his little master. " Come! Rover 1 Rover!" But the dog didn't care to move, and so Harry went off to the river-side alone. He had not been gone a great while before a thought of her boy came suddenly into the mother's mind. Remembering that he had a little vessel, and that the river was near, it occurred to her that he might have gone there. Instantly her heart began to throb with alarm. "Is Harry with you?" she called up to Harry's father, who was in his study. But Harry's father said he was not there. 1 '. "I'm afraid he's gone to the river with-.his boat," said the mother. . " To the river." And Mr. Lee dropped his pen, and came quickly down. Taking up his hat, he went hurriedly from the house. Rover was s...

nrGRATITUDl TO _PABENTS. There is a proverb that " a father can more easily maintain six children, than six children one father." Luther relates this story: There was once a father who gave up everything to his children—his house, his fields and goods----and expected that for this his children wbttld support him. But after he had been some time with his son, the latter grew tirecLof _hitOj and saidtid him, " Father, I have had a son born to me this night) and there, where your armchair-stands, the cradle must come j will you not perhaps go to my brother, who has a large room? " ' After he had been some time With the second son, he also grew tired of him, and said, " Father, you like a warm room, and that hurts my bead. Won't you go to my brother, the hater?" The father went, and after he had been some time with the third son, he also found him troublesome, 'and said to him, " Father, the people run in and out here all day, as if it were a pigeon-house, and you cannot have your...
