Tliu v'iIIiieo of C is situated on I lie sniitlnvt'Merii coikI of Etil.iiicl, in oiip ol tliusn e.qiii-.itcly liuiintil'ul v;ill', which serin si'chiik'd hv lltu lolly hills, which cm hnicc ovory siilo hut thai which is -.vfislieil liy tin; ocean, from tho woili! and nil its turmoil.

Somo of his visitors, charmed with tho loveliness of tho spot, were induced to follow his example. Ilouso nftci house was added, until C became a wator-injj-placu of somo nule, ospocially as a rosoil for those :i filleted with pulmonary diseases. Though slill possessing most of tho usual np pundsigfs of ball-iooms, nnd libraries, C was happy aliUo in what it had and had not. Tho small town remained nearly in statu rpio. This clear and rapid stronm which wound round llio base of tho lulls was loo shallow to bear a boat on its waters ; and tho road w hich ran by lis side, and which afforded tho only 1110:1ns of access for can i.ipes, wasnouo of tho most easy. In a word C posses sed, in addition to its other advantages, ihat of Irunrpiilily. Tho puiisli church was sit uated at a distance of four miles ; and tho in cumbent, a (run and faithful minister of his Lord, had associated .villi himself three cler- i.Vmen as curates, to assist him in tho caro of ,.. .,,,.1 ,, t,, .,r;c, n,,.. ,.r OXteUSIVO illlU populous p.triSll.

It was fioin tho gentle man who filled this office, I learned the fol lowing narrative. Towards tho closoofa fiuo niilmun day, a carriago was seen winding down tho road which led to C . It drove to tho door of ono of the prelly cottages nruce, which stud ded the valley towards ihe mouth of tho river. Two gontlomnn vvero seen to alight from it ; nnd neither of them such as wo pass without observation. The elder appeared lo border on fifty years ; tnll, not robust, yet apparent ly athletic in frame, wiih a countcnanco whoso lofty and intellectual expression left tho beautiful classic oulliuo of tho features ttnobscured, till more inlimato nnjiiaintancn gave time to examine them ; tho dark eye seemed to pcnclrato the very thoughts, yel tho benevolent smile won confidence. The other individual was a young man seemingly not more than two or threu anil twenty, slight and graceful in figure : resembling the elder in tho beautiful contour of filatures ; but with in iiiu uuuuiiiui i-uniuui 01 iiiaiures : 1 0llo 8y(..s, rich, luxuriant hair, fuirm tellocual loo in expression ; but w II nd florid and in- en- 11 II R L I N G T 0 N , 1 lliiisinstie, and almost femininely sweet in ex piessioi). As they descended from tin; car riage and tin ned to gni on llio beauties I around, it was evident that llm younger of the two was warm in bis admiration, nml would I fain have lingered lo gnz.n nn a sceno so lovn- ly, had not the other gonily foiced him to the ' house. I M. M....I.. .1... ! r...l I I .,.'iiii , 1111; i-ii'i t niiiii ui winiiiii spoken, uliku unwilling to bo ohlrusivo or necleclful, mado it a part of his duly to gain sufficient knowledge of tho circumstances nf thoso who visited C , lo enable him In ofl'er such aid ns might bo useful. No found the persons just anived were a father nnd son; tho former n man of Inch professional and political reputation, nnd lilerary renown. Tho latter, his only child, had recently dis tinguished himself creally at the university ; bill bad injured his health by too rloso appli caiion, and had come lo C for the purpose of relaxation nnd the benefit of a niildirair. IIu was tho idol of his father's heart tho ono point in which cenlred all his hopes, his afi'ections, his pridojtis ambilion. Deep and tranquil were his feelings Ininquil from their very depth he know not himself how slrong, until their course bncamo impeded. Mr. Manly railed, as was his wont, in a few days : "Not at home was ihe answer. In a day or (wo he repealed his visit ; 'The gfiiiljemen were nt dinner;' cards were left at his residence, lo called again, but was not admitted it was was evident bis visits were declined. In a common case he would probably have tested here, feeling ho had done his pail ; Iml some inlcllizenro he had received from a fiiend at Oxfoid had deeply excited his inteiest, From him he had learn ed that Sir William D , llio elder of tho two, was a man whose character for lal- enls, for literary fame, for high and honora ble (eelings, or inlelleclual power, was of the highest older, I5ul, alas ! the ono lliinc which could sanctify and direct all to the best cuds was waminr ; Sir William 1) was an infidel. Left early a widower, by tho death of an adored wife, who expired in Giving liiilli in his only son, Ins whnlo snul had centred in him. 'And he, though lis lalher knew it not, was already doomed to an early grave : hastened lliither, by the very efl'oils to fulfill his father's wishes", in his at tainments at the university. And he, too Ihe yotiiirj, tin; talented, 'the beloved of all beai is ho too, on llio very verse of the tomb had been Alucaled on infidel ; or, at any rale had never been instructed in religious principles, other than as a matter nfsperula tivo philosophy a syslem devised by man In Mile tho mnlliliide. Could it be a mar vel that my friend Manly set his whole mind ami thoughts on seeking to win him, me. ton late, to the fold of his Master the great Shepherd of souls ? Hut days and even weeks passed nway, and no openin-; came. lie was almost des ponding and ctieved lo the soul as he mark ed at intervals, inrreasint; appearance of dis ease, when I'roviilence brought Ins wish to pass, in a modo nnd time least expected. He had heeniiding some distance, nnd was reluming, towanls eveninc, when, in lurninu, a corner of the road, ho perceived the two objects ()f his solicitude before him. Tin; elder had apparently been thrown from his horse, and hint ; for ho was silling on a bank, bleediiio fiom a rut on the forehead, and seeininnly in much pain; his son silting by him nnd supporting him. Mr. Manly in stantly alighted to offer assistance. It was thankfully accepled, though not in tho way ho expected. Sir William, anxious lest his son should snfier from exposure lo night-ail, urged his immediate return ; and requested Mr. Alanly to remain with him lint his son might leave mm without scrnnlo : ho he- ought, nav commanded him, now assistance bad arrived, to Insten home. It was touch ing to view tho exceeding affection evident on both sides doubly so to one who knew all ll o circumstances. Mr. Manlv added his entreaties, promidng to do all that he could '. have done ; and, to easo his father s mind, he reluctantly obeyed. Sir William was not seriously hurt ; but was unable, from an iniurv to his leg, lo re mount bis hnrsn ! and llio servanl bail bpnn despatched for tho carriage. This event in sured Mr. M.mlv's introduction. It was somo time before Sir William was iblo to resume his rides, and young I) was glad to h ivo so intelligent a companion is Manly. They soon were accustomed lo ride together dailv ; geology, botany, scien tific pursuits of various kinds, drew Ilium to gether; as well as that enthusiastic love for naturo, under all her varied forms of beauty, which formed so slrong a bond ol union. Mr. Manly was too judicious to force religiw on his notice prematurely, although ever most at his heart; and Sir William was only lian- py lo seo his dear Henry amused and grati fied. As winter drow on, their rides were interrupted, but not their intercourse. Mr. Mania's library and his conversation were welcomo nccessories ; nnd when, after Christmas, Sir William was forced lo attend his parliamentary duties, and it was consid ered advisable for his son to pass tho spring mouths 111 the west of hngland, ho left I11111 h ippy in llio society and under llio caro of Ins new friend. Ami well it was for young I) that that friend was ono who uni ted to tho most earnest and exalted piety mind nf llio highest powers, and an intellect refined and acute. Tho colder weather soon produced pain ful increaso of disease to Henry D , although hu was himself unconscious of any dangerous londenry ; but cold upon cold 111a almost constant cough, rendered con finement to llio house, necessary. And need I say that every hour to bo spared from his other duties was devoted lo this uncon scious vtciim I and closely had his many ex cellences of natural character onlwined him round the alTuctions of poor Manly, whoso anxiety for him daily increased. Already ho had so ordered their courso of reading ns that religion had linen brought boforo him; whilst tho constant f innliarily wiih his friends, round of duties necessarily awnko different thoughts from thoso ho had imbibed.' Mr, Manly was u mtin of unduubled sincerity nnd probity ; moreover ho was a man of deep learning; with a mind stored with a variety of knnii ledge, n heart full nf nolnV mid generous feeling. Sunh a man could V E II M 0 N T, FRIDAY, 0 Ju.j;' i.'i'. "j-.i . .l u, w.iii ,. UJP..I pnmi'mr lj w not be 11 hypocrite ; such 11 mini could mil ho a slave to prejudice. Yet it was evident religion was tho life of his soul , it was truly 'his meal nnd drink lo do his Master's "ill ;' ho lived wholly for others. Slill Henry never made any observation thai could pro voke discussion ; and, but for what ho hlid heard from undoubted authority, Mr. Manly might havo construed his silence into tacit assent. It hapened ono day that Mr. Manly did not come as usual to dinner. Henry was ill, and oven depressed in spirits. Hu miss ed his friend never had ho disappointed him before ; hut hours passed awav and he came not. llenrv at length tlcsnahed of seeing him that night ; when about ten o'clock ho entered. He looked ill and liar rassed ; his usually cheerful countenance was mournful nnd sad ; his cheek paler than usu al. Ho threw himself into a chair, and in quired how Henry had heen,saing hu could not go to bed satisfied without seeing him, anil explaining llio cause of bis absence. Ho paused and lien added, ' I have been since noon unending a death-bed under pe culiuily painful circumstances. Uti! I am somewhat agitated, and will say no nioro to night ; it is your hed-tinie, and 1 am fatigued, so farewell lill to-morrow." Henry urged hi 11 to lake some refresh moot ; but hu refused, saying he needed to ho alone. ' Tell me only who is dead." ' Young Di'laval.' ' Dol.ival 1 'by hu was in ici feet health a few days since !' 1 lie was ; and now his mortal frame, lale ly so full of life and vigor, is innniniate clay ; his spilit has passed away into eternity. Hut I will say no more now; farewell." When Mr. Minly saw Henry the follow ing day, it was evident the event of the preceding nighl had been a cauM.- fur lefiec tinn ; he was thoughtful and seemed nlmost afraid nf touching on the subject. Hut the event had mused Manlv lo a detei initiation to let no 111010 precious lime p iss without bringing fnrwaid the ono great object of bis ilesire. lie related lo him llial young IJcla val had taken cold a short lime previously ; bill, engaged in the pursuits of pleasure, he neglected it ; went lo a paity fi 0111 whence be had walked home heated with dancing; rapid inllaination followed ; all medical aid was vain; and he died after a few days ol acute suffering. Ills mother nnd sister had been sent for when bis danger became ur gent, and arrived the night before. Mrs. Delaval bad sent for him tho following day ; and be remained till all was over. A har rowing scene it was to every feeling ol his pious and sympathizing mind, to witness the espau ing struggles ol a n mg sinner, vain- ly seeking for ihat which in his bonis (if health ho bad despised, to witness the anguish of the mother kneeling at the death- bed ofher first-born son, and dreading, too fearfully, tho paning was for ever. Hut of this Manlv said nothing ; ho held his oflico too sacred to reveal aught of private transac tions which became known to him through the privileges of his holy functions. He dwelt merely on the awfulness of the event, the suddenness of the bereavement, and the grief of the mother and sisler. After dinner that day, as they sat together sad and thoughtful, Manly suddenly rose, and nfter walking op and down tho 10001 for a few minutes, seated himself near his ftiends, and looking at him earnestly for a moment, said, 'Henry, I have something very serious and solemn in'lo speak to you about. Are gb for a lengthened conversation ?" was evidently agitated by somo nd undefined emotion, tint after a died. 'Yes. dear Manlv. I am nniln well enno Henry unusual run muse replied, 'Yes, dear Alanly, I am quito equal to listening to any thing" you bavu to say.' Al. ' I hen 1 will speak nnd relievo my! mind from a weight which presses on it very ' heavily. Our ainiiaintance is not of a very longdate; but our constant intercourse ha's given us a greater insight into each other's characters than years might have done under different circumstances. Hut it is not from ihis source a lorm that I fuel lo know you so well. .Soniu of your college- ftiends worn mailer; let mo nine uus evening lor relluc mine, and from them 1 have heard nincli of."01'. you; mucli of your proliciency in learning, your distinction in classical honors; more of your attaching and winning qualities of heasrl and mind, lint, with all I havo been told, alas, that in tho one thing needful, in the 'pom I of great price," you are wanting that, in a word, you aro nut a Christian.' Alanly paused in deep agitation, Thero was a long, a painful silence. At length Alan ly resumed : 'Henry, my fiiend, my very dear friend, is this trim! In feelings, in lastes, in pur suits, in sentiments, rarely have I met with one to whom I could feel my whole soul so closely united, as yourself. Dear, very dear you aro to mo; and in all things connected with this world only, most worthy of tho love I bear you. Is it indeed true that, in thnsu higher and nobler aims which bind u.i for eternity, I must hopo for no sympathy from on ? Henry, answer: can it hu that with a mind so imbued wiih a lovo for all excel lence, you aro not a Cluistian a follower of him who is the typo of excellence ?' Another pause. Then Henry replied in a low distinct tone: 'It is line I nm not; nay, until within tho last few weeks the sub ject has never presented itself to my mind as a thing nf sufficient importance lo merit tho consideration of a rational mind. Never, untH of Into, when your chararter has grad ually unfulded itself, and given lo me new and undreamed nf aspects, has the question ever presented itself to my mind in the form of a doubt.' M. 'And yet you havo lived for years in a Christian land. You havo, al tho univer sity at least attended Christian ordinances. Is it pnssiblo that these incongruities havo never awakened speculations In your mind T-you, so truo, so dear a lover of truth 1' IT. 'Fom my childhood I was led lo be liovo that these were mere conventional forms, for tho benefit of tho weak and igno rantfor tho mass, who needed somo out ward, tangible forms, somo motives of fear and hope, to dctor them from vice." M. 'And you could believe In such a mocking sophistry ; you could bollavo that a system which proYcsncd to make the good of C T 0 B E It 11, 1844. j'jajjji'UMjijLXU-ji'iii!ajijiLy-iiiiaiiiiij mankind its uiiu, nnd virtue tin; basis of thai lint, could make falsehood its own ground ol action ; (hat lo teach the multitude truth was essential (audtlhero could he no virtue with out it) it was necessary for the teachers themselves lo be living lies. How could your clear head nnd upright hunt t embrace or hold by such sophistry for a moment al'ici your judgment became matured r" . 'You must recoiled, my dear Manly, that I told you it was but recently that in thoughts had been drawn lo the subject, Nor, when you consider what are the' effects of early impressions, and still more what Un lives of many professing Christians are, can you bo surprised, if, absorbed in literary pursuits and youthful amusements, I heeded not wdiat I had been taught lo believe a ne cessary delusion. Ton aro the first practical coniinentarv of Clnislianily lis doctrines I havo ever been associated with and my mind has been 111 rested. Hut the subject, if onco seriously eutereil upon as a mailer of investigation, is fur too important for a hasty decision. If such a mind and such a charac ter as my dear father's is nveisu from your dortiines, it must bo a long nnd painful ex amination that could lead me lo adopt them.' M.

Hut ho was iiiii.blo to discern the mis chief that was lurking and spreading like a canker at llio root of that beautiful blossom ; and Henry had not tho heart to crush the hopo that ho clung lo.

Hut his manner towards Mr Manly showed no change, except increased cordiality ; he fully appreciated his afTeciiuii. ale attention towards his son ; he delighted in his conversation, h esteemed his worth: and Henry delighted to listen lo Ihem, as he lay on his couch in the twilight hour, and was sometimes won to forget fulness of the one great difJerencu between them as he heard the eloquent outpourings nf two surh minds, both so refined, so expanded, so full nf lofty nnd noble folding, that it seemed ns though there were no difference, except in the ono actuating motive.

Tho rising sun cast a gleam over tho couch where Henry lay; he perceived, as he approached, that Sir Wil liam, utterly overcome by fatigue, had fal len asleep, with his arm, on which his own head had drooped, encircling that of his son, and ono hand clasped in Ins.
