Why, that's cheap; you can't have much room, though, at that price, in this city." 44 No, nor can I afford to pay for much room," replied James, "I go for economy myself. A penny saved is a penny earned, you know." 44 Yes, so I've heard you say a thou sand times," returned William, 44 but as for me, I will not scrimp myself down and live in an inconvenient tenement for the sake of saving seventy-five or a hun dred dollars a year. We are both young, and just married, and we had better take our comfort now, and thus make sure ot it, and not deprive ourselvec of happiness for the sake of laving by a few dollars to perhaps leave to others when we die This is what I tell my wile, and she agrees with me." 44 But," said James, 44 we need not de prive ourselves of happiness by living so far within our means as to lay by some thing for a day of need. There is such a thing as love in a cottage, you know, or even love in a small tenement in tht city. You and I do not receive very large salaries, and if we would lay b* anything, we must not pay for tha< which we can possibly dispense with; and hiring extra room that we can do without, involves not only a needless ex penditure of a certain amount of money but also an expense for extra furmturr to furnish your rooms with. If you pa 8200 for a tenement when a fcluO om would have answered your purpose jus* as well, why there is a 8100 gone at tht end of the jeafr, that might have beei saved ; and then you will need, perhaps 3150 worth of furniture to fit up the ex tra rooms with, whicl* you do not ieallj need; then at the end of the first yea? you are minus S100. which you might have saved, and also minus at least the interest of 8150, granting that the fu: niture has not decreased in value at th< end of the year, which is hardly proba b!e. Thus you see at the end of tht tirsi twelve months I shall have upwards of ?100 the start of you " "Well, well," replied William,growing impatient, 441 suppose there may bi something saved by those who will takt the trouble; but as for ow, 1 had rathei live like decent people." So saying, he turned and walked away. James Latham and William Brown were both firemen in a large car manu factory, each receiving a salary of S800 per year. They had both just married, and were nowcommencing house-keeping They were ambitious, and prided them selves upon being masters ef their par ticular branches of the business in which they were engaged, but weie widely dif ferent in some traits of character. James was for saving what he earned; William for spending his earnings, and as he teimed it, 44 taking the good ot them as he went along." James realized the v.ilue of money, and knew the im portance of a married man's having something laid by for a day of sickness or other emergency, while William set little value upon it except as a means o promoting present enjoyment. William's wife's views on this subject were the same as his own, while James's wifd was fru gal and inclined to save wherever an op portunity occurred. James hired a $100 tenement, bought just enough furniture to fit it up com fortably, and commenced housekeeping in a snug way, fully determined not to branch out and incur additional expense until well able to do so. William hired a $200 tenement, with neatly twice the room James had. To suit his wife it must be well furnishe.l, and the expense of his furniture amounted in the end to twice that of James1. This, with other expenses, left him at the close of the year considerably in debt. James, with very close economy, made the first year's expenses, including the cost of his furniture, oome within his income, so that he still held on to a small sum of money which he had laid by be fore marriage The second year of wedded life he laid by something handsome, as he had no expense for furniture ; while William, at the close of the second year, was more deeply in debt than ever. James continued on from year to year, and by frugality and his wife's good man agement contrived every twelve months to make a handsome addition to his little store of wealth; while William was daily encountering difficulties and per plexities without number, and tormented with tradesmen's hills, incurred through his own and his wife's extravagance which he could not settle. Eight years pasted away, when one morning William accosted James in the shop. 44 How is this," said he ; 441 heard this morning that you had become a partner in the establishment; I wouldn't have credited it, but I was told so by the head of the firm." 44 Well," replied James,441 suppose I must plead guilty to the charge." 44 How strange," continued William, musingly, 44 that they should take you as a partner when you had nothing to buy in with !" 44 Nothing to buy in with!" said James,14 who tcld you that I had nothing to buy in with?" 44 Why, no one; but I knew you had not, of course, for jou get only the same wages as myself, ana I cannot make mine pay my expense*, but come oat minus at the end of each year." "Weil, William," answered James, ,4I have made my income par my expenses, and have laid by something every yrar, i which being placed in the bank, hac, I principal and interest together, accumu THE WEEKLY STAR. It led to quite ft respectable little ami, and with this I have bought ft numberflf chares in this establishment. To* bawt often heard me repeat my motto, that Eony saved is a penny earned,' a?d I re repeatedly told you that wbsn ft man sares twenty-fire, fifty, or Fsrenty five cents a day, it is the same as so much earned extra. It is not what ft man earns that tells in his faror at thft close of the year, but what he sares." William drew a long breath and walked away without making any reply; but that night, while sitting at his fiiV* *ide, he pondered loug and deepjy upon ihe past, and the contrast between his present situation and that of James, re solving to pursue a different course in fu ture. but his resolutions hare never been carried out. James is now, twelve years after mar riage, a partner in a flourishing business, and worth ten thoussnd dollars, while William is still a foreman in the same establishment, at his old salary of eight hundred dollars a year. How Statubs abe Madi ?Dick Tinto. the Florence correspondent of the New York. Times, writes that the inducements for American sculptors to remain in Italy?Powers, Hart, Crawford and oth ers?are that they have constantly on hand more orders than they can execute, and employ numerous workmen at cheap * ages. We quote : These workmen, who actually perform the whole or nine-tenths of the chiseling, cutting in marble what their employer puts before them in plaster, receive Ital ian wages?a small daily pittance. If taken to New York, they would at once riple and quadruple their Italian earn ings. and would probably set up for them selves as carvers, in a small way, or ftft lecorators and ornameoters of churches and public buildings. The chisel is no longer the tool of the master sculptor ? lis instrument is an odd bit of stick, with which he scoops away at the figure m clay, or " at the mud," as be will tell you himself. When finished, as nearly as such a material can be, a mould is taken, and from that mould a cast in olaster. If necessary, this cast is still further finished and sand-papered, and it is then handed over to the cutter, whose lutv it is to make and exact fac nmiU in marble. The sculptor proper may never touch his marble, and when he is told it is lone, he is ready to deliver it to its iwner. The workmen in Mr. Powers' studio have executed not far from forty Prospering from the one plaster origi lally composed by the master, and the ireik slave has, in the same way, been eproduced three or four times. The best bust maker in Italy never touches che marble. He may suggest or order iair strokes here and there, but be does not handle the scraper himself. In ftll his the workman, though he may exe cute unassistedly the statute, the head, the group, is no more the author of bis work than is the clerk who copies the Prime Minister's rough draft, or the cal hgraphist who engrosses a set of resolu tions. You can see bow impossible it would be for sculptors, occupying and requiring in this way the work of many men, to transport their studios to Amer ica. Woman's Rights.?The afiairs in the Cast, as developed before the parliamen i ary committee of investigation furnish in argument for the advocates of woman's right to an equality of civil power. The men in command at the hospitals at Scu tari, as elsewhere, managed everything in the most miserable manner, without arrangement, or efficiency, or respon sibility. With plenty of stores, with plenty of funds, the sick and wounded were suffering because no one had the proper authority to distribute the meant that had been piovided for their relief, and no one had courage to break through the routine, which rested like an incubus upon the whole service. Miss Nightin gale alone dared to do it. Without au thority, for nobody had the authority, she took a few stout fellows, broke open the store bouses, and against all rule and all law, brought to the sufferers the com forts for need of which they were dying. A woman showed an energy, a common sense, and executive ability, to which not a man in the whole service rose. It will not do, after this, to call a man who displays irressolution in purpose, or in efficiency in conduct, an old woman; but ' when a woman shows her want of char acter let her be called an old man.? Providence Journal. A Classical Bcxl.?Some two years since, an ambitious journalist, ft long way down South, describing a steamboat catastrophe, deplored the *tate of the "hapless victims, who were plunged at once into eternity and the voter % of Vir gin bay." For this, he was hailed with inextinguishable laughter, from his breth ren of the press, who quoted his pftrft graph from Sacramento city to Passama quoddy bay, and for aught I know, he has been laughed at throughout Europe and the antipodes. Yet, if he had only known it, the man had right good classi cal authority, had he but pluck enough to throw it into the teeth of the laughers. Ovid, whom, of course, no one dare laugh at, has in the second book of his metamorphoses in describing the catas trophe of Phaeton, the following fins spec imen of profound batkos: Dextra libratum fulmen ab aure misit in aurigam, pariterque an imaque ro tisque expulit. Which, for the benefit of those who like the 44 Swan of Avon," have little Latin and Greek, maybe roughly and readily done in English thus: " Whereat the ruler of the sphere ffarU thunder* from taU toiler ear, Wita Wbiea i*? to?Jp*o? be kMtfa Ai ere- oat of ulsteuce ami km It seems that Ovid has it hollow, against the Isthmian editor.?
