There’s not many of my mates can eay as much for themselves. Steadiness, sir —steadiness and keeping your eyes open. Is what docs It. When I say seven men and hoys, 1 mean my mates—stokers, pc'tors andwiorlli, I don’t count passengers.” * How did he become an engine-driver? . My father,” he said, “wasa wheelwright in a small way, and lived In a little cottage by the side of the railway which runs be twixt Leeds and Selby. It was the second railway mid down in the kingdom theses ond after the Liverpool and Manchester, where Mr. Huekuuon was killed, as you mae have heard on sir. When the trains rushed by, we young’uns used to run out to look at cm, and hooray. I noticed the driver tnraed handles, and making it co and I thought to myself H would be a fine Hung to bo an engine driver. and have the control of a won derful machine like that. Before the rail way, the driver of the mail coach was the biggest man I kuew. I thought I should Uke to hi; the dnverof a coach.

Iu my idea, the King couldu’t be a greater man than the driver of the mail coach. I had a!wavs a fancy to be a head man ot some kind. M him I went to Leeds occe, and saw -a man conducting a orchestra, I thought I should like to be the conductor of a orchcs pa. 1\ hca I went homo 1 made myself a baton, and went abont the fielda condoctin-’- 0 orchestra. It wasn’t there, of coeree, but 1 pretended it vas. At another time, a man with a whip aud a speaking trumpet, on the stage outside a show, took my fancy, and I thought I should like to be him. But when the train came, the engine-driver nat them all in the shade, and I was resolved to be a engine-driver. It wasn’t long before I had to do something to earn my own living though I was only a young ’un. Mv father died suddenly—he was killed by thunder and lightning while standing under a tree oat of the ram—and mother couldn’t keep us all.

If I couldn’t be a engine-driver. I was determined to have something to do about a engine: so. as I could get nothing else, I went on board a Xlumbcr steamer, and broke up coals for the stoker, i hat was how I began. From that. I became a stoker, first ou board a boil, and then on a locomotive. Then, after two rears’ service 1 became a driver rn the very line which our cottage. My mother and mi brothers and sisters came out to look at me, the lira! day I drove. I was watchla-' for them and they was watching fi»r me, arid they waved their hands anil fioura’d and I waved my hand to them.

No. we don’t call them carriages, wc call them * coaches.’ oscillation means danger. If you’re ever ra a coach that Oscillates much, tell of it at the first station, and get it coupled up closer. Couches when tho’re too loose arc apt to jump, or swing off the rails; and it’s quite as dangerous when they’re coupled up too close. ‘There ought to be just apace enough for the buffers to work easy. Plun gers arc lightened iu tunnels, but there’s less danger, now, In tunnels lhau anywhere else. \\ e never enter a tunnel unless it’s signalled clear. “A train can be stopped wonderful quick even when running express, it the guards act with the driver and clap on all the brakes promptly.

In their anxiety to pcriurm their duties, they put on the brakes too soon, so that sometimes we can scarcely drag tbe tram into the station; when they grow older at it they arc not so anxious, and don’t put them on soon enough. It’s no u»e to say. when an accident happens that they did not put on (he brakes In lime; they swear they did, and you can’t prove that they didn’t. * “Do I tliink that the tapping or the wheels with a hammer is a mere ceremony?

The value of the house had been teterred to what was popularly called “a compensation jury," and the house was called, in consequence. The Compensation Hinite. It had become the company’s pro j>crly ; but its tenant still remained in nos tceslon, pendioe the comracucemcnt or ac tive building operations. My attention was onylpaliy drawn to this house because It stood directly in front of a collection of hthre piecca oi timber which lay near this partof i l oe, and on which I somcUraes eat for half on hour at a time, when I waa tired by mv wanderings about Mogbv Junction. it was square, cold, gray-looklng. built of roueb-hcwii stone, and rooted with thin slabs of the same material. Its windows were few in number, and very small for the size of the buildins. In the great blank, gray broad aide there were only four windows. The en trance door was In the middle of the house there was a window on either side of i t , and there were two more in the single storv above. The blinds wore all closely drawn uud, when the door was shut, the dreary life or occupation. butlhedoorwas not always shut. Some limes it was opened from within, with a great jingling ofbolts and door-chains, and then a man would come forward and stand 1 upon the dopr-etep, snulilnjr.the air as one might do who was ordinarily’kept on rather a small allowance of that clement. He was stout, thickset, and perhaps arty or sixty years Old—a man whose hair was cut ex ccedingly close, who wore a large bushy Ilf**?’ “P? whose eye had a sociable twinkle in ,t which was prepossessing. He waa dressed, whenever I saw him. In a greenish, brown frock coat, made of some material which was not cloth, wore a waistcoat and trousers oflipht color, and had a frill to his smrt—an ornament, by the wav, which did not seem to po at all well with* the beard, which was continually in contact with it. It was the custom of this worthy person, after standing tor a short time on the threshold Inhaling the air, to come forward luto the I road, and, after glancing at one of the upper • windows in a half-nicchanlcal way, to cross 1 over to the lugs and, leaning over the fence which guarded the railway, to look up and d^. t . Le V DC ( ,l before the house) with the air of a man accomplishing a atlt imposed task of which nothing was expected to come. Tills done, he would cross the road again, and. turning on the threshold to take a final sniff of air, disappear once more with in the house, bolting and the d<*or as if there were no probability of its being reoycned for at least a week. Yet half an hour had not passed before he was out in the road again, sniffing the air and looking up and down the Line as before.

Ilia master it ap pealed, bad come down to this place, partly tor the sake of reducing bis establishment m*t, Mr. Jlasey was swift to Inform me. on economical principles, but because the poor gentleman, for particular reasons, wiahedto have few dependents about him,—partly in order that he might be near his old friend, Dr. Garden, who was established in the neighborhood, and whose society and «d --necessary to Mr. Strange's life. That life was, it appeared, held by ibis suffer log gentleman on a precarious tenure. It was ebbing away fast with each passing hour. The servant already spoke of hfi master in the past tense, describing him to * me as a young gentleman not more than five and thlrty years ol age, with a young •ace, as far as the features and build of It went, but with an expression which had nothing of youth aiiout it. This was the great peculiarity of the man. At a distance bo looked younger than he was by many years, and strangers, at tto time when ho had been used to get abont, always took him for a man of seven or eight and twenty, but they changed their minds on getting nearer to him.

Here'was a thing which, at any rate, I conld understand. I had with me my usual small stock of medi cine* and surgical instruments, and I did what was necessanr—first, to restore my nn nappy patient, and next to procure for him the rest he needed so ranch. He was very ill —at death’s door for some days—and I conld not leave him, though there was urgent need that 1 should be back in London. When he began to mend, I sent overto England for my servant—John Massy—whom I knew I conld trust. Acquainting him with the outlines of the case, I left him in charge of my patient, with orders that he should be brought over to this countrv as soon as he was fit to travel. That awful scene was always before me. I saw this devoted mao, day after day, with the eves of my Imagination, sometimes de stroying In his rage the harmless looking glass, which was the Immediate cause of his suffering, sometimes transfixed before the homd image that turned him to stone. I recollect coming upon bun once when we «cic stopping at a roadside inn, and seeing him stand so by broad daylight. His back was turned towards me, and I waited and watched him for half an hour, as he stood thire motionless and speechless and appearing not to breathe. lam not sure but that th& apparition soon so by davUgfat was more ghastly than that apparition seen in the mid dle of the night, with the thunder rumbling among the bills. “Back in London in bis own boose, where be could command In some sort the objects which should snrron*'d him, poor Strange was better thru he would have been else where.

Tbe foliowieg resolution was offered on ’Change tc-day. /itfolred. That this Board is decidedly of the opinion that a rapid contraction of the currency of the country would eo very detrimental. If not ruinous, to thcjbuMiieas Interests of the whole ccmmnnlty. That the Secretary of the Board be ..instructed to forward copies of this resolution to the Cuiied Staua Seiiator, and Representative from this district. Charles Randolph, Esq., moved to amend by maklrg It read, ** a more rapid contraction of the currency of the country than Is tow provided for by law.” Hr. Oliver Cealy offered as a substitute: iTsiO/ryrf. Hat we approve of the policy of the Secretary of tbe Treasury, for an early return to specie paymenhsas the onl? safeguard w» Na-fonal prosperity, having In view the funding M the short obligations of the United States Treasury it*to long bonds. Wotnutthreeyevstobeasai oclcst timo to enahlebnr Gorentmeut to resumo her Torxner dignity and equality among the com mercial nations of the earth, by paying her obli gations in com. On motion of Cononcl B. H. Bough, tbe snbstl tute was laid on the table by an overwhelming majority. The question wa* then called on Sir. Randolph's amendment,resulting in Its adoption by an almost unanimous vote. The rcfolctir nas amended was then put. and carried—therebviuv not more than f.fieea or tnenty dicbcnilog voices out of the fire hundred meiabira present. This action of the Board of Trade h a step In the right dircclloo, and a? far as it is worthy of til esioMnarat. Bnt It might have takes a atcp lailhrr. The resolution ought to bare pro leelcd agalcst acy contraction whatever, and taked Congress to reeded the law which bow pro ▼ides lor the cancellation of four minions per month. The currency I* at the present time, a secondary question and needs no tinkering what ever. Every business man possessing a fraction of ordirary common sense knows perieetly weu, that It la to bis advantage and

credit* to decrease that portion of hli Indebtedness which draws Interest, and leave the non-interest bearing pan to take care of tt policy of the Government Ought to ho unswervingly directed to the payment of the debt which carries Interest Every dollar of this debt cancelled Is a earing of six cents In gold per year to ihe people, while the con version of the carecn *T (or contraction) Into bonds only adds six cents per year, for each dollar ao converted, to the enor mous taxes already borne. The gradual caaccTa tionot the Five-Twenties, or other ImeresC-bcar. lag securities, proportionately strengthens oar >auona] credit, both at tone and abroad. Specie payments will be much sooner touched by the gradual paying off of the debt, and Improving oar [ credit, than by contracting the currency, which | la the end docs not relieve the people of one cent 1 of taxation, and adds nothing to oar National credit. A year aro Mr. McCulloch made a speech In Fort Wayne, In which he advocated at length the contraction ol the currency. Every merchant and capitalist throughout the country has a vivid re collection of the Injurious effect* caused by this speech. The country Is going through the same operation now, as the result of the “specie re sumption” and “contraction” policy enunciated In his late report to Congress. Wewanta defi nite and live policy on the part of the Govern mem—one the people can take slock In, and bo freed hereafter from these periodical distup. baaces which have hitherto sprung up at the will of the Secretary of the Treasury. The week closes up on a very tight Money mar ket, and there are no prospects of sny relief until after the appearance of the January statements. The banks are confining their lavors to those whom It would be Impolitic to refuse. In the open market good names are taken at I}*@l4 per cent per month, and less acceptable slgaaturea at 2 per cent. There was a more active demand for Exchange, and as the supply la exceedingly TighC the market ntlcd firmer. Sales were made between hanks at 3D©loc premium, and even at these flgurea mere was UiUe to be had. Most of the banks were obliged to ship currency. The counter rates are firm at par buying and I*lo premium selling. There waa more activity in the demand for For e»*n Exchange, and owing to the advance la Gold the currency rites were higher.
