" Mamma," says Anna, " you said the other day when we were repeating the Commandments, that you would some time tell us a story to illustrate the fifth Commandment. Please tell it to us this afternoon." "O yesl" says Charley, "I wish you would; I have just finished my arithmetic lessonind would m_^ch rather _hesr you tell a story than to go but and pky." "So would I," says Arthur j " and I have got every word of my geography'lesson, too/* "And I have just finished the hem you gave me to do," says Anna, folding up her work neatly, and putting her thimble and scissors neatly in their place. " Now, if you please, I will rock the cradleand keep the baby quiet, so that you can sew if you wish to, while you are talking to us." " Thank you," says mamma; " but in the first place, tell me what the fifth Commandment says."

For the American Presbyterian "MOTHEjnS DEAD." _TtV V,. TL. A. Close the blinds—shut out the sun, Hang the crape upon the door! Mother's dead! her work is done, Shall I see her face no more? In the parlour still she lies, Cold her cheek and shut her eyes! Who will teach me now to pray, ¦Pity me when I am sad, Gently chide me in my play, Smile on me when I am glad ? Who will smooth my little bed? Mother' s dead! Mother' s dead ! Father says but little now, Folds us fondly to his breast,. Lays his thin hands-on my brow—Seems as one who cannot rest: All our joy and light are fled, Mother ' s dead! Mother ' s dead! Say ye that she is not dead! , That with angels in .the sky, Glory circlus ' "round her head, I shall see her by- and-by: O what joy the promise gives, Mother lives!

1EVING HO _SKEECH_^MAKEE.f Many charming writers have no power of thinking or speaking before audiences. .They are inighty with the p_%_jiy/^t/;p.D_^erii_^ _^ _%i ' tn ihe tongue. It is well known _tlhat _Goldsniith had no conversational gift, even in a little circle of friends, and the following story of Irving, ittild by Prof. Felton, shows his dread of dinner parties, where toasts and speeches were expected": Great and varied as was the genius of Mr. Irving, there_.was one thing he shrank with a comical terror from attempting, and that was a dinner speech. A great dinner, however, was to be given to Mr. Dickens, in New York, as one had ailready been given in Boston; and it was evident to all that no man but Washington Irving coiild be thought of to preside. With all his dread of making a speech, he was obliged,t;o obey the universal call, and to accept the painful pre-eminence. I saw him, daily during the in teryal of preparation, either at the lodgings of Dickens _^ or at...

He went along very well as long as the water, was shallow. But soon the water became deeper and deeper; at length he could not touch the.bottom with his pole. Poor little Grace and Katie were very much frightened, and began to cry, beting him to come back. But he would go across any way, he said—he could row with his pole; but in his effort to row, he pushed the boards of his frail craft apart, and went down. When he saw he was going, he caught hold of one of the boards for a moment, and screamed loudly for help. But, alas I there was no one near that could help him, and by the time the screams of his sisters and the efforts of the servant girl had brought some neighbors to the shore, he sank to rise no more. Poor wretched Edward, cut off m the very act of disobedience! ushered without a moment's warning into the presence of that God who has said, ' Honor thy father and thy mother, that thy days may be long in the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee.'

DECLINE OF FEMALE COlTv'EESATIOir. An English writer declares the fact—that the women of our day do not ' -." converse," and then attributes it to the multiplicity of studies, and the evening confinement to books and school companions. He says: • _^ "It should be as miieh a matter of duty and of conscience to insist on out-door exercise, and indoor social recreation, as upon any of the regular exercises of the school-room. School studies should be confined absolutely to school hours. To allow them to encroach upon the later hours of the day, and upon the graceful household duties, and recreations, which either are, or ought to be, provided for every girl at home; in other words, to subordinate the home training to school training, or to intermit the former in favor of the latter, is k most palpable and ruinous mistake. It is bad even in an intellectual point of view. " To say nothing of other disadvantages, it deprives girls of the best opportunities they can ever have of learni...

For the American Presbyterian THE GOLDEN RULE. \ Ours is a busy world. It is full of labors, toils, and cares. It must be so. Man's bread must be earned by the sweat of his brow. Each must bear, his part in feeding and clothing a world. He is an unworth y member of human society who refuses to do it. It is the demand of the divine law that every man "labor, working _s with; his hands the thing that is good." In some way he is to endeavor to better the condition of others. * A grand principle in Scripture economics is, thafe no man is entitled to be supported by others who is able to support himself. And another of equal plainness and importance is, that they are entitled to the aid of others who cannot aid themselves. Those in early, and those in advanced years, must be provided for by others. The feeble and;unfor tun ate have a just claim upon the robust in health and vigorous in mind. No man liyeth to himself. No man is to labor merely for self, but with the definite design th...

For the American Presbyterian. IKBIA. PROTECTION OF NATIVE CONVERTS. My Dear _Editor:—A few weeks ago, I sent; you extracts from, a letter of a Nat we convert in India, showing a gratifying change in the spirit and policy of the British Government towards Hindoo converts. The disposition of the Government to reorganize the civil rights of converts, was brought to view in the result of a petition, preferred by some three or- four hundred converts in the city of Ahmednugger, praying that they might be allowed to procure water from the public wells and fountains, like all other natives of the country. The Government promptly recognized this right of the converts, and they, of course, repaired to the public fountains , from which they had been so long excluded. : This was the signal for a general outcry on the part of the people that the Christians were polluting their water , and resolute efforts were made to prevent the act. All the markets were closed, and the British magistrat...
