If half tho ability and ingenuity, often wanted 111 pfiorts lo set aside the condemning vord cl of conscience, after wrung has boon dene, were employed in necking out truth and pursuing the path of duly, li e mind, instead of having only tlio imperfect ca'm 11! a sufoi conscience, or tlio 'ropclinrou: , .. ,,l(i anco of 11 psricrtcd conscience, would lind thai peacu winch is like a river, and lint joy which i like tho overtlowiug stream. Here, as in nlher things, " tho way of transgressors is hard." They toil much more to sectire.from conscience a incru silenco while they continue elraiifj-etl from duly, than would bo needful lo obtain a pos. jtive nnd sweet approval by walking in the way of wisdom. And after all, the rilencc, if it is ever cfiec ted, is but temporary. Conscience cannot bo long Hilled, or cheated out of us prerogative. She may be flittered, or bribed, or deceived, per. haps, for the pret-cnl moment : but no mill cm bind her in a covoiient for tho future. Snu may Bleep to. day j but can give no guarauteo lint hhuwill ileep lo. morrow. Sho is tho servant of the Almighty, and is fully commissioned as his minister nf vengeance to inflict upon tho transgressor tho pangs of solf-reproioh and re morse. It is IriiP, no eloquence, no human now. or, can with absolute certainty call forih her ler. riblo utterances in the toul of man; but it is equally true, that no human power can hinder those utterances when Owl bids her condemn. How agonizing Iho infliction thus sometimex brought upon tho soul through conscience as the ofpunUhmenl ! After continued s elf justification, effected by self-deceit, or after pro traded slumbers, of conscience under tlio en grossing pleasures of fonse, or tho equally en grossing cares of business, the work of convic tion unexpectedly begins. Conscience, strip, ping the hoarl of its disguises, pours in the evi. iloncc of guilt as with a blazo of sunbc.iins, flishes condemnation as with darts of lightning, and lets loose all the terrors of rcmorsa liku tcuipe.t floods of desolation. What suffering, what punishment, can equal this I Who will hero speak of tlio acutcst p;iius uf disease ol bodily laceration or even of tlio agony cf grad. ml burning in the A lines Tiiuse are but faint emblems of tho rending?, the knawings of the wounded spirit.

Thu fust day she sold neaily all her ajlirles, and made twenty-five cents. Day after day her business incieased .o h il she was enabled lo keep on baud u larger assortment and a gieater quantity.

For ten veins had Sarah been attentive lo her litllo business, and no ono hut herself nnil mother knew bow well sho had succeed ed, and how much money shu had in her mother's chest. During this periud Mr. Co horn had niiriieda second wife, who was called an extravagant woman, and it was said that bn bad not piospered of lalo as in for mer years.

Jano and Sarah seldom met ; they bid scarcely exchanged a word for two yeais. II nl Jano, nccordin j to all appear unci's, hud not cluX-ud for the honor. She was still proud iiiid'h.iiigbly, and looked with contempt upon Sarah, and all those sho con sidered beneath her. As it was thought, Mr, Cohiirn was in a very poor way. About this time he failed in business, his cieditors having attached his slock and housn. This put a d.iniper upon Jano, who never dreampt of such a thing. She thought her father was on perfectly sifu footing.
