I heard a low knock at my back door, and upon going to open it. I f<>und a pedier. Now pedlers are a great vexation to me?they leave the gate? opon, never have any thing I want, and I don't like the face? which belong to most of them, especially those of the strong men, who go about with little packages of coarse goods, and I alwaysclosc the door upon tbem, saying to myself?laiy. This was a little boy. and bo was pale and wet, and looked so cold that I forgot that he was a pcdler, and asked him to come in by the fire. I thought he appeared as though he ex pected me to buy something, for he commerced opening his tin box, but I had no such inten tion. He looked up in my face very earn estly and sadly when I told him that I only wanted him to warm himself by the fire, and did not wish to purchase any thing. He rose slowly from his scat, and there was something in his air which reproached me, and I detained him to inquire why he was out in the rain. He replied. " I am out every day, and cau't stay in for a little rain ; besides most pedlers stay at home then, and I oan sell more on rainy days." "How much do you earn in a day?" "Sometime.* two shilling9, and sometimes one, ar.d once in a while I get nothing all day, and then, ma'am, I am very tired." Here he gave a quick, dry oough, which startled mc. " How long have you h*d that oough ?" "I don't know, ma'am." " Don't it hurt you ?" 44 Yes, ma'am. 4i Where does your mother live ?" "In heaven, ma'am," he said, unmoved. 44 Have you a father ?" 44 Yes, ma'am, he is with mother," he re plied in the same tone. " Have you auy brothers or sisters ?" " I had a little sister, but she went to mo ther about a month since." 44 What ailed her ?" 44 She wanted to see mother, and so do I, and I guess that's why I cough so." " Where do you live ?" 44 With Mrs. Brown, on N stree'." <k Do? s she give y^u any medicine for your cough " '? Not doctor's medicine, she is too poor, but she makes s> mething for mc to take. 44 Will you take something if 1 will give it to you?" " No, ma'am, thank you ! m- ther t:x k medi cine, and it didn't keep her, thcugU she wonted to stay, and I want to go, so it wouldn't stop my cough. Good day, ma'am." " Wait a moment, I paid, 441 want to see what you carry." He opened his box, and for once I found what i wanted. Indeed, I don t think it would have mattered what he had I should have wanted it. for the little pedier had changed in my eyes?he had a fatner and mother in heaven, and so had I. How strange that pedlers had never seemed like people? human, soul-filled beings, to me before ! Hot thankful he was, and how his great sunken blue eyes lookod into mi^e, when I paid him. 4- You don't ask me to take a cent less," said he, after hesitating a minute; "I think you must bf* rich." 41 Oh, no," I replied, 44 we are very far from that; and these things are worth more to me now, than I gave for them. Will you come again ?" 44 Yes, if I don't go to mother soon." 44 Are you huugry ?" 44 No, ma'am, I'm never hungry now; I sometimes think mother feed* me wben I am asleep; I only know that I don't wish to eat now. since sister died." 44 Did you feel sad then ?" 441 felt very big in my throat and thought I was choked, but I didn't cry a bit, though I felt very lonely at night for a while; but I am glad she's up there now." 44 Who told you that you were going to die?" 44Nobody, but I know I am. Perhaps I'll go before Christmas." I could not endure that he should go out In the storm that day, and tried to make him stay, but he said he would run and tell Mr*. Brown what good luck he had met with. Ho bid good day again cheerfully, and went into the cold rain, while I could only soy, 44 God be with thee, child." He never came again, though I looked for him every day, and at length, about New Year's, 1 went to the place he callcd home. Mrs. Brown was there, but the little pcdler bad gone before Christmas. Poor little pil grim ! his weary feet were at rest, and never more would his gentle knock be heard at the door of those who, like mjself, forgot that ne cessity and stern want often sent about these wanderers from house to house, and tnat their employment might be far more unendurable to tnem than annoying to us I have learned a lesson, and I never see a pedier bending with his load, but my heart softens to them, and I wonder if they, too, do not wish to lay aside their burden and be at rest. BEHAVIOR AT WATEBING PLACES. If a traveler were to visit an American wa tering place at the height of the season, we fear that he would conceive a poor idea of our politeness generally. He would find so many people putting on airs, so many rendering themselves absurd with pretensions, so many exhibiting a mere vulgar love of displav, that b'e would infallibly beooine disgusted, and averlooking the really well bred, would pro nounce us all a set of conceited puppies. Foremost in such places we would find thore would-be exclusive*, who fancy they are prov ing their gentility by violating a.l the ordi nary courtesies and customs of life. To be lingular some think, is to be aristocratic, and so Lhey 6tultify themselves by appearing in sun bonnets at church, coming down to dinner in l dishabille and attending a hop in a morning :ostume. Or he would see such persons af fected to be disgusted with everything they eat, and pronouncing excellent accommoda tions 44 absolutely wretched." Have people my business away from heme with such ridic ulous airs ? Watering places are essentially democratic, and have been so oonsidored ever since Beau Nash ruled at Bath. The genera :oinfort demands that all should bo affable, especially as an acquaintance formed at such resorts, is understood, among really well-bred persons, not to involve an intimacy in towns, unless by mutual consent. Next in prominence are the gossips and tale bearers. These are always busying them selves with other people's affairs, retailir^g -mall slander, winking inuendovs, manufac turing falsehoods. They pry among servants and <3iildren, po'sou the judgment of their listeners, and sedulously aim at setting evry body by the eats. Next eome the vulgar pre tenders, who, by dint of extravagance and show, hope to be regarded as people of consid eration. Then there are the latest mode, and ieride all who differ from them in dress, man ners, or style of acting. They will laugh to her face at an innoeent girl, who darces more elaborately than tb?y have been taught to. forgetting that, at the Court of St. James, the polkas and sehottisches would be considered insufferably low. It is the mark of a radi cally base and vulgar heart to And matter for ridicule in everything exoent vice or er.me. No class of persons is really leu well bred than those pretenders of fashion. But the Ladies are not the only offenders. It is a common thing in going to a watering ptaee to see men rush into the cart, monopolising tdl the best seats. Or they are seen snatcning the choicer viands, at a steamboat dinner, from under the very eyes of the ladies fer whom they wore intended- Or they drive recklessly past, nay, almoct over, nurses and shildren walking on the beajh. Or they keop invalid? awake at night and offend the rare of ladies, by the bacchanalian shoot* and F>oga. Or they pat off tbe!r eixar moke in the facet of women. Or they suffer an unprotected fe male almost to starve at table, by bribing the waiters to bring everything to them Or they gormandise like gluttons, to the infinite dis gust of all person? lees beast!y than them selves. | Pontile at watering places should remember that there is no public resort where their foi bles are m<-re easily detected, for every one has It;sore to observe his neighbor. To be natu ral. affable and courteous is therefore the only safe plan. Gene rail y, when people pot on j airs, they deceive n >body bot themselves, and ! instead of exhibiting their importance, they only betray their tilliaees and vulgarity.. A SUCCESSFUL THICK. A yoorg and skilful diaciploof Robert Hou den was some time ago traveling in the north ern provinces of Prance, giving exhibitions in natural magic, in eiinp:.ny with a young wag, now director of a printing establishment la Paris. In their wanderings tbfy arrived at the town of R . more renowned for its manu factures than for the natoral brilliancy ef its inhabitant/. Here the roceipts of the magi cian were absolutely nothing, and despair reigned in the hearts of oar two adventurers. What was to he done f "By iny faith," exclaimed the assistant magician, " it will never do to say that wo did not make our expenses ' I have it! Let me write a poster for ooe more entertain ment, and if the attraction don't answer, call me no assistant for a high priest of diablerie : 44 'At tbe urgent request of the large and in telligent audiences ot our former entertain ments, we have consented to perform the as tounding feat of making tbe cathedral bell ring any hoor indicated by any of the au dience. To take place this evening.' " There, how will that do?" " Bui how are yoo to fulfil the promise?" " Oh! never mind. Am I not a worthy pupil of a skilful master Leave that t-j me. ' Night c&ute, and with it a crowd of tbe cu rious. All went off well, and now came the feature of the evening. Any cne was asked to name a number. " Four!" came from the crowd. In fear and trembling the mirhty magician extended his hands towards the cathedral, when one! two! three! four! boomed slowly from the cupola. The eold perspiration started, to the exhibitor's brow, and the audience shouted with di light and surprise. u Kucore! encore!" resounded from all parts of the room. Again What was to be done? But a voice from behind the curtain said : "Go ahead, old boy?it's all right!" With a sigh of n.ief the exhibitor repeated the miracle again ami again, and the specta tors departed filled with enthusiasm. " What in tbe name of wonder have you been doing ?" exclaimed the puttied princi pal to his laughing assistant, as eoon as the doors were closed. " Why, I gave the bell-ringer five francs to stay in the be!Try and rin? as many time as I placed candles in the window, aud I think it aucoeeded pretty well, n'ut ee paj V replied the other, snaking the well-filled cash box. The next day, as they were starting in th# cars, one of the city cooncillors came to them, and begged that they would explain the mir acle. " It is magnetism, my friend." said the ma gician, with a grand flourish of his hand, and the magistrate departed, much edified ar* perfectly satisfied. A Sawdust Hoax.?Jane Hughes stole a box of tea from the front oT a store in Seoond street. Jane is an rid woman, and remarkably fond ef tea; Jane is also a poor woman, having but little money to expend for the purchase of her darling beverage, consequently she looked on this chance as a godsend, and concluded( to take a supply for winter. Therefore the had watched her opportunity, and in the evening, when none insiae were looking, Jane picked up the box and eontinued her travels; but a po licemen meeting her smelt a mice; and pat a few questions which Jane failed to answer sat isfactorily, so she was taken to the Station tion house. In the baaswood bunk, or cell, No. 77, Jane slept that night; but in her dream* she had dim visions of tin tea-kettles and smaller utenrila, boiling, and steaming, end hissing, and orerfi >wing with green tea; small eompanics of ancient dames of her aeauain tance were seated at her table, and all stir ring and sipping nt a con, yes, a dogen cops, of her delightful tea. Sne wouldn't need any other provisions all winter, and she'd have plonty of tea parties. Bot Jane's dreams were disturbed by being called into Court. The b-'X waa brooght in. and to show her how great was her crime and to ascertain the value of she tea, it was duly opened- Alas ! poor Jane! your box of tea was but a sawdust " dummy," which the deceitful dealer had placed in front of his store to throw dust in the eves of such poor, simple eouls as you. J ane s mortification was greater at having been fooled, than being arrested, and tears fi <wed freely as the tea-parties, one by one, disap peared. The owner of the dommy refused to prefer a charge against her, so J ane was per m tted to depart, which she did, saving that ?he bought the tea from a man in the s:reet, and that he was a swindler of honest women.
