"HE SAID HE WOULD"' "Please don't shut tho shuiUrs. mother? tho moon is ?o bright," said little Willie Angut'?adding. as he moved uneasily on the sola. " it's a uioc night for Lim to come."

But. uuf.rtum.tcly, a prusage leading t) many oth er houses it cl?i?e by the door of theirs, and ??ne by one the ? und of f?.ntsteps died u*ay, and none came to their door. Pour Willie had a long i.lness, whi?. h he had borne veiy iiaticuliy, and he was quite aware that there was no chance of his ever gott:ng be.t r. Ilis greatest pleasure wan in being read to; but. unhappily, his mother hnd never been w II taught, and though everything elso ihe did for him w 13 the best and pleasant^st. she was <juite awurc thfit he derived no pleas ure frciu her reading, and she was theretore always glal to get itoine one to read to him. A young lady, bis former Sunday school teacher, used to come two or three times a week, but she had now been ill herself for several week*, and till* Mr. Ellis, having called accidentally to speak to hiJ mother alr.ut some sewing, had been please I with the child, and hnd been in .several times to read t > lum. His voice was a very musical one, and W illie's quirk ear was fully alive to the beauty of his reading, though he ct-uld not, perhaps, have told why he en joyed it more than that of any one el*. This evening, as he lay listening, he held tightly in his hand a little book of poems with his linger in the place whero hi^favorite was? ??Charlie and his father '' tight o'clock struck. Willie turned away his head from the bright moon, and, as he shut his eyes, his wnt-hful mother saw a tear es cape ou the pillow. He had given up hope for this night?and more, and worse than that for his loving heart, he had learned that he must not tru t implicitly in what '? he said." For another week the little invalid watched every week between seven and eight for his friend, lie qaid nothing. He could not bear to reproach him, and it would have been far worse to hear him reproached by his mother. He kept the b??ok under his pillow, instead of his head, and each night, as eight o'clock Struck, he gave up the hope. Hut this constant restless expectation was bad for the child. His mother saw that ho became feverish towards evening, and did not sleep so well; so. having finished part of the work for Mr. Ellis, she determined to take it home herself, and see him if she could He came i.* sj>e?k to her, and inquired kindly alter the little boy. She would uot lose ouch a good opportunity, and said he was not so well, and that he had been much disappointed at not having #eon Mr. Ellis. '?Poor little follow ! I will come some day soon." he said. '?Some day soon." repeated Mrs. Angus to herself, a-: she w-ut home. '? When will that be. iwond.-r? Poor Willie !" Anxiously were the poor boys eyes fixed upon her as she came in, for he knew where she had been. '?Ho asked very kindly after you, dear,"' said his mother answering the look. " I?id he say he was c< ming ? '* Yes. he said he would coine some ?y soon." Willie's eyes brightened. He had not yet learned how easily promises are made, and heedlessly they aie broken. A week | a.-sod. another was nearly at its close?and the mother knew that her child's life was ebbing away fast. The medical man said that ho had n<jt many days *o live, and must be kept Hi* quiet and happy as he could. She could not quite understand the fascination which Mr Ellis appear?*d to have had over the b y. but -lie k'lew that ho was constantly in hi- thoughts, nmLshe was determined, if ?MKdtde. to bring him. Again she went, and found him as kind in manner as before. "Worse, is ho' Poor little lad! I must come soon." " I beg your pardon, sir," said Mr?. An?us; u but there is nothing but your coming that will do him any go<>d. He has been looking for you ever -ii.ee 1 ceme here last, when you said you W' uld come soon." ?'Did I ? I forgot. Poor child! I will go with y.'U.'' He put on his hat, and accompanied her home. She went in first to tell Willie who was coming. He did not say a word, but stretched out both his bunds, pressed his friend's hand to his hot lips, and then slipped his favorite book into it. The book opened at the usual plaee, and how Willie's ears and heart drank in the low music of the words. *' Father, when people die. Will they come Ixtck in May ?'* Tears were in Charlie's eve*? " W ill they, dear father?say ?" " No. they will never come; We go to them, inv boy? There, in our heavenly home, To meet in endless joy." When this w;is read. Willie did not, as usual, ask for another, but keeping Mr. Ellis' hand, he looked at his mother, and said, as if hardly conscious of his presence, "It. was long to me, but it was soon to him. He said he would, Mother," and in a few minutes his hand re laxed, and he slept more uuietly than he had done for many nights. What a world of grat ified trust in those few words ! How tho little loving heart had been wounded when it thought its friend trrr* forgotten, and how tweet the feeling that, after all, the intention had been fulfilled. The words sank deep in the listener's heart, and ho resolved that for the future he would be more watchful in keeping his promises Would all do mj, bow many a weary hour Of disapjiointmeut would bo saved by young and old! Not mauy days did Willie's gentle spirit linger here; but no day passed without a visit from Mr. Ellis, and the boy passed from life to dehth as he listened to the words : ,4 In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so I would have told you. 1 goto prepare a place for you.''

I was parsing down B<>wcry about four clock on the morning of the id inst., when I met a boy about four teen years of age trudging along uptown, hold ing in hi.- hands one eud of a long, heavy. rope, to which were attached, by small cord.-. Dine ?logs of e very grade of site, oolor, and age. Immediately behind, camu a younger lad, ap parently a brother of the first, holding under each arm a >mall puppy. They had probably been out all night collccting their b??oty, and were now on their war to the pound for the purpose of securing their prixe money, by which they were to celebrate the F'-urth. There were captured, on that day, within the city limits, 32a doge. Nothing yet has been heard of Col. Kinney, who sailod, it is supposed, for Nicaragua, to take part with the revolutionary party under Mnnox. New? has ju?t arrived of the landing of Walker's force, who sailed from San Fran cisco, and the capture by them of Ritas and San Juan del Sur. That the force ?Tgaiii*ed in this city by Kinney was intended to ae-i?t the revolutionists of that oountry. there can be no doubt. Most of them have* already gone, but there are yet over fifty men in this city who are ouly awaiting explicit orders from Col. Kinrny to leave for their destination; one of them, wno bears th? nominal title of lieu tenant, 1 have seen daily, until within a few days past, lie is one of those wko served in Cuba in the Lopes expedition, and only es caped by a sort of miracle. Suicides are becoming very frequent in this city, and f?>nn a weekly aggregate perfectly startling. This shows an intensity ot mental over bodily pain; for while wo hear of suicides occurring from grief, it is seldom that a person commits suicide on account of bodily affliction. I was witness to a desperate attempt at aelf destruction, a short tone since, which, although the man's reasons for doing so might have been immense, yet I could not retrain lit the time from a smile at the termination. I saw a crowd gathering on one of the E-vst River piers, and crossed over to learn the cause. A man had just plunged into the water, and was nowhere to be seen. Some philanthropic in li viduals were hastily unfastening a boat, iuto which they sprang and row^a <?m ? 'hort dis tance, anxiously watching lor Lis re-appear ance. Bat nothing w*.? to b<* seen: and, alter waitiug aud rowing around tb* npot for a fu?l quarter of an hour, they were about returning, when a faint cry arretted the attention of all. About thirty r??ds above, where he had been carried by "the tide. gra?ping with an tir of deisneration a rope hanging over the side of a vessel, wajs the poor fellow who had ? -uzht to " shuffle off thi- mortal coil " The boat won rear hod him. ?nd lie exclaimed : 4t I gues?you. may take me in." lie wn< thortly landed oil the pier, all drij-pirig with water, his d?;ire f.?r death somewhat abated. Should he ever attempt suicide. I dare fiay it will be by wuw oth^r meat..4 than drowning. Fx-President Van liurcn, and his son, CiT.

The old chap was miserly in the extreme, denying to himself the smallest luxury beyond the prison fare of bread and water and beef's head broth. At the tiniQ of his arrest for tbe alleged for gery. he was teudered counsel, who pledged themselves to clear him for a fee of $500. To this the old man replied, that. 4' if convioted. the sentence would only be for two years, and he didn't think he ould make his expenses and two hundred and fifty dollars a year out of the penitentiary, and it woald cort him nothing to live there, and be would save him that much any how."?Louisville Journal Drinking after Dinner?A man that can? not pass an evening without drink, merits the name of a sot. Why should there be drink for the purpose of carrying on conversation? Women stand in need of no drink to stimulate them to converse; and I have a thousand times admired their patience, in sitting quiet ly at their work while their husbands are en ga|fcd, in the same room, with bottles and glaases before them, thinkiig nothing of tha ex pense, and still less of tlie^shame, which the distinction reflects upon them. We have to thank the women for many things, and par ticularly for their strictly sober habits Men drive them from the table as if they said to them r " You have had enough ; food is ?ufi aisnt for you ; but we must remain to fill our* selves with drink, and to talk In laaxnage which your ear* ought not to endure ' Wb?n women are getting up to retire from tbe table, men rise in honor of them; but they take ?peoial eare not to follew in tbeir txcelletl Kavpte ?ijtbbm.
