How the Cridwta ilroiigltt Good Fortune. My friend Jacques went into a baker':* sliop one day to buy a little cake, which lie had fancied in passing. He had intended it for a child whose appetite was I gone, and who could be coaxed to eat on i ly by amusing him. He thought that i such a pretty loaf might tempt the sick. ' While he wa'ted for the change, a little jboy six or eight years old, in poor, but perfectly clean c'othes, entered the ba ker's shop. "Ma'am," said he to the baker's wife, " my mother sent me for a loaf of bread.'' The woman climbed • upon the counter (this happened in a j country town), took from the shelf of four pound loaves the best she could find, and j put it into the arms of tlwj little boy. My j fi iend Jacques then first observed the thin a thoughtful face of the little fellow.

" Thousands of them did so. In the time of trouble they all pretended to have repented of the many wrongs and injustice towards the colored race. They remind us of a circumstance, which may be termed a miracle, which, in our injant days, wo frequently hard re furred to by oui mother and several others, viz: The peop'e were very wicked, and on one occasion it was thought that the starry heavens were falling to the ground, and that the day of judgment was at hand.
