AN INCIDENT IN SCHOOL LIFE. SEVER TWIT A BOV FOB WUAT HE OASXOT AVOID. [Trom the Buffalo Courier, August *^2.] Incidents trifling in themselves often have an important irfluciice in deter mining the character of a life. A word spoken in season, a cruel taunt, wounding the heart to its core, have been the turning points in destiny, and put a young mind on the hi^h road to fortune, i or sent it downward to ruin. Almost every person can recall soine occurrence in early life wt'ich gave tore and impulse to cflort, and imbued the mind with principles whose influ ence is even now controlling. We give place to the following true narrative, as hu illustra ! ti< n of this fact, and because it iiiculcatcs a truth which every man. woman and child may profitably bear in mind Year* ago, when I was a boy, it was cm j tninary. and probably is now U> some extent among district school* in the eountry. t) have spoiling schools during the winter term These gatherings were always anticipated with great ' interest by the scholars, as at those times was : to be decided who was tho best scholar. Oc i ca.-ionally one school woul l visit another for a I tesS of scholarship in this regard. Ah! how the litti'e hearts would throb, and big onus thump, in their anxiety to beat the whole. Once on a time, a neighboring school sept wi rd to ouis that on h certiin day, in the af terooon. they would meet in our school-bous? for one of these contests. As the time was short, most of the other -tudies were suspend ed. and at school and at home in the evenings all hands were studying to mast< r the mono syllables, dissylablea. polysyllables, abbrevia tions, Ac.. Ac . which the spell ing-bt?oki con tained . At length tiie day arrived, and as < ur vis it- s were considered rather our superiors, our to?;: - and anxieties wei< j r p rti"i.atcly great, n.e vholars were arranged in a tanding po sition, on opposite sides of the hou^j, an i the w > ds pronounced to ea^h side alternately.and the scholar that ''missed"' was to sit down. His game was up. It did not take long to thin the ranks on botii sided In a snort time ? ur school had but eight '?u the tb-or. and theirs but six. Af ter a few rounds, the contest turned in their favor, as they had four standing to our two. For a long time it seeme l ;us though these six had the book '? by heart." At length the number was reduced to one on each side Our visitors were represented by an accomplished young lady, whose parents had recently ar livcd in town, and ours by myself, a ragged little boy of ten summers, who sat up night after night. while my mother, with no other light than thvt produced by pine-knots, pro nounced my lessons to me. ihc interest of the spectators was excited t*> the highest pitch, as word alter word was .spelt by each At length the young lady misled and I stood alone, lier teacher sail she did not under stand the w?-rd .She declared she did: that the honor was mine, an 1 thati richly deserved it. That was a proud moment to m?. I had spelled down both -chools and was declared Victor. My cheeks burned, and my brain was dizzy with excitement. Soon as the school waa dismissed, my cotu pctitress came ami sat down by my side and congratulated me on my su-cess. inquired my Oiiiae and age, and flatteringly predicted iny future sueecss in life. Lnaucustomcd to such attentions. 1 doubt less acted as most liuie boy - would under such circumstances injudiciously. At this junc ture, Master U.. the s,n of the rich man of I our neighborhood, tauntingly said to me. in tlio presence of my fair friend and a number of boys from the other school?" Oh. you needn't feel so big?your folk.- are poor, and your father is a drunkard."' I w;id happy no more?i wa3 a drunkard's son?and hew could I look my new friends in the face * My heart seemed to rise in my th n at and almost suffocated me. The hot I tears scalded my ey> ??but I kept them back, and soon as possible quietly itiipped away l'mra my companions, pr<>cuied my diuner bas ket, and unobserved left the scene o;' my tri umph and disgraee. with a heavy heart, for my home, But what a homo! " My folks were poor?and my father w is a drunkard." liut why should I reproached for that' I could not prevent my father's drinking. a:.d. assisted and eucouiaged by my mother, I had done all I could to keep my piace in my class at school, and to assist her in h*.r wnr?o than widowhood. Hoy as I was i inwardly resolved never to to taste of liquar, and that I uould ?h ?w Mat ter <*.. if I was a drunkard's son, 1 would yet stand as high as bo did. But all my resolves could not allay the gnawim; grief ami vexi tion produced by his taunting words and haughty manner. lu thic lrame of mind? my head and heart aching, my eyes red and swollen?I reached home. My mother saw at ouee that I was in trouble, a?.d inquired the cause. 1 buried my lace in her lap, end bur.-t into tears. Mother, seeing my grief, waited uatil I was more composed when 1 told her what had happened, and added, passionately, " I wish father wouldn't be a druukard, ?.> we could be respected as other folks.' At tirst, mother seemed almost overwhelmed, but she quickly rallied, and said : ?? My sou, I feel veiy torry l'? r you. and re gret that your feelings have been so injured, li. has twitted you ab ut things you eai e t help. But never mind. my ?<>r. J3e always honest; never taste a drop of intoxicating liquor ; study and improve your mind, lit - [ten lon your own energies, truting in God, ai d you will, if your lit# is spared, make a useful and respected man. I wished your fa ther. when sober, could Lav# witnessed this ?ceue, and realized th? sorrow his course brings on us all liut keep a brave hi art. my Km R member ym are responsible only for four own faults, l'ray Uj >J to keep you, lon't grieve lor the thoughthse and unkind reproaches that may be cast os you <>n your father's account." Ihis lesson of my Lie scd mother, 1 trust, was not lost upon mo Nearly forty years .avd gone since that day. and 1 have passed nany tryiug scenes. but none ever made so strong an impression on my feelings as that icartless remark of G ?. It was so unjust lud so uncalled for. Now, -boys, remember ilways to treat your mates with kindness. Sever indulge iu taunting remarks towari my one, and remember that the son of a po>r nan. and even of a drunkard, may ha\e .-eli gibilities as keen as your own. 13ut there is another part to this story. The ?ther day a gentleman called at my place of >u-iness, and asked if I did not recognise lini. I told him I did not. " Do y?,u reuiem >er.*' said he, l,of being at a sp?lling-s;hojl it a certaiu time, and a rude, thoughtless boy witting you of poverty, and being a drunk mi's son ?" "I do most distinctly,"' said I. ' Well," continued the gentleman, '? I am hat boy. There has not, probably, a month if my life passed -ince then but I have thought ?f that remark w^th regret and shame, and as l am about leaving for California, perhaps to :nd my days there, 1 could not g ? without first ailing on you. and asking your forgiveness or that act."' Boys, I gave him my aand as i pledge of forgiveness. Did I d ? rijht ? You ill say yes. Well, then, let me close a-? I be jan. Boys, never twit auotner for what he :annot help.
