I ''hall nc ,'pr forget a lesson which I received wi" n ?(in e ? young lad at an ncadcmv in B Aui?nr my scb??ol-fcllows whore Hartly and .on They were somewhat older than inv ' .1. and the latter I looked up to na sort of jP?der in matters of opinion and of sport. He w.is not at heart malicious, hut he ha l a foolish ambition of being thought witty and sarcastic and he made himself feared by a besetting hab it of turning things into ridicule, so that he seemed continually on the look-out for mutters < t derision. liartly wns a now scholar, and waa little knu^n among the boys. One morning, as wo Here on our way to school, he was seen driving a cow along tho road toward a neighboring field A group of boys, among whom was Jem *>n. met him as ho was parsing. Tho opportu nity was not to be lost by Jemson. 44 Halloa ho exclaimed; "what's the prlco of milk.' I s*J? Jonathan, what do you ivd'ler on' AVhat will you take for all the gold on her horns' vs. if you want to seethe latest Paris style l>*'k at those boots"' J ' Hartly waving his hand at us with a pleasant smile. and driving the cow to tho field, took d-wn the bars of a rail fence, saw her safolv in the enclosure. and thpn putting up tho bnrs rinio.ind pntored the school with the rest of ?? After school in the afternoon, he let out ?n*cow, nnd dr?>ve her off. none of Us knew ?here And every day, for two or three weeks, wont through tho smuio tnsk. The boys ol Academy were no irlvnll tii- sons of wealthy parents, and some of them, ?"*" '"g whom was Jemson, wore dunces enon^h m look down with a sort of di?dain upon?a r h *lar who had to drive a oow. The sneers and } ort of Jemson wore accordingly often renewed He once, on a plea that he did not like the odor of the barn, relused to sit next to Hartly. Oc casionally he would inquire after the cow's health, pr-.nouncing the word - ke-ow." after ?he manner of some of tho country people. ?? ith admirable good nature did Hartly bear nb these silly attempts to wound and "annoy luui 1 do not remember that he was even one'e ?"'rayed into a look or word of angry retalia tion ? I suppose, Hartly." said Jemson one day. *41 sunpi.se your lady means to make n milkman of yoU." - Why not," asked Hartly ? nothing; only don't leave much water in tho cans after you rinse them?that's all!" Tho boys laughed, and Hartlv. not in the mortified, replied. "Never fear; if ever I sh mid rise to be a milkman, I'll give good measure and g*H>diuiIk." The day after this conversation, there was H public exhibition, at which a number vt lailies and gentlemen from other cities were present. Prizes were awarded by tho Principal of our Academy, and both Hartlv anl Jemson received a creditable number; for, | in respect to scholarship, those two were about oqual. After the ceremony of distribution, tho 1 nncipal remarked that thoro was one prize, c n-isung of a medal which was rarely awarded, r. t so much on account of its great cost, as be . tu*e the instances wore rare which rondere 1 i> bestowal proper. It waa the prize for hero i-iu The last boy who received one was young Manners, who three years ago rescued tho blind gui from drowning Thw Principal then said that with the per mission of the company, he would relate a short f-t-ry Not long since. Home scholars were nring a kite in the street, just as a poor boy ? ?n horseback rode by on his way to the mill. 1 Alio horse took fright and threw the boy, injur ing him so badly that he was carried home, and t >nanod *>me wueks to his bed. Of the schol ars who had unintentionally caused the dis aster, none followed to learn tho fate of the wounded boy. There was one scholar who had witnessed the accident from a distance, but stayed to render services. J his scholar soon learned that the wounded boy was the grandson of a poor widow, whose ? lo support consisted in selling the milk of a line cow. of which she wag the owner. Alas! what could "he now do' She was old and lamcj and her grandson, on whom she depended to dr.ye the cow to pasture, was now on his back, helpless. ?? Never mind, good woman," said tho scholar, 4-1 can drive your cow'" "ith bles.-ings and thanks the old "woman ac cepted his otter, lint his kindness did not stop b-re Money was wanted to get articles from ?no apothecary. ?? I have money that niv in th.-r sent me to buy a pair of boots with; but I can do without them for a while." "Oh, no. said the old woman, "1 can't consent to that; but here is a pair of con-hide b?>ots that I taught for Henry, who can't wear tliem. It" v u woul l only buy these, giving us what thev - *t. we should get along finely.

H? r ever undertook to explain why he drove a p ?? for he was not inclined to mako a vaunt ? iiaritablo motives, an l. furthermore, in hi h? m t he had no sympathy with tho false pndo t/i it could l??ok with ridiculo on any useful em ployment It was by mere accident that his course of kindness and self denial was yester day discovered by his teacher.

The ladies st<N,d u|on beuches and waved their handkerchiefs; the .,ld men wiped the gathering moisture from the corners of their eyes and clapped their hands, 'lhoso cluui-'y b-a>ts on Hartlv's feet -?omod prouder ornaments than a crown would i.ave been on his head. The modal wao bestow ed on him amid general acclamation. I.et ino toll a gi>.?d thing of Jemson before I ? include. He was heartily ashamed of his ill i. it-ired raillery, and after we were dismissed, he went Willi tears in his eyes anl tendered h ? hind to Hartly, making a handsome ajsilogy ?'?r hispas. ill-manners. "Think n?> more of If old follow," sai I Hartly. with delighted cor diality, let us all go and havo a ramble in the wo.,J* before we break up f.,r vacation."

A picture. representing the nnle of a quantity of old furniture seized for rent, was exhibited some years bark in the window of a dealer in the Place de la Madeleine. Pari?, and attracted considerable attention. In the foreground was placed a poor woman holding in her arm? a child, and watching with a sorrowful eye the progress of the salo. The sweet face of the child stood out in strong contrast to the distressed countenance of the poor mother. Further back were tho personages connected with the sale, represented with groat vigor. The following is stated by a Lyons journal to be tho history of the scene depicted: A few years sinco tho painter of tho picture in question, an eminent artist at Lyons, while passing through the Rue des Terreaux. ap proached a number of persons, who were gath ered together witnessing the sale of the furni turo of a poor woman. A womnn was seated on the pavement, with a child in her arms. Tho painter spoke to her, and was told that the fur niture which was being sold belonged to her; that her husband had lately died, leaving her with the child she had in her arms; that sho had struggled bard to maintain herself by working day and night, submitting to every privation; but that her landlord had at length seized her furniture for some months' rent which was duo him. The artist was much affected by this simple recital, and inquired who was her landlord. " There ho is,'' replied the poor woman, point ing to a man who was watching the progress of the sale: and he was recognized by tiie painter as a person who was suspected of having made a considerable fortune by unury; so that to make any appeal to his feelings on behalf of the jxx>r widow would be useless. The artist was considering within himself what other plan he could adopt to benefit her, when tho crier an nounced a picture for sale. It was a miserable daub, which in the manner the poor woman had used to hide the hole in the wall through which tho pipe of tho stove passed during the winter It was put up at one franc. The artist at once conceived a plan for taking revenge on the landlord He went over, examining tho picture with great attention, and then called out, with a loud voiw, ?? One hundred francs !"' The landlord was astonished at the bid, but conceiving that a picture for which so eminent an artist could offer that sum was worth more than double, boldly offered 200f. "Five hundred!" said the painter, and the contest between the two bidders becam? so ani mated that tho prize wa3 at length knocked down to the landlord at 2200f.' Tho purchaser, then addrofsing the pninter. said : ?? In seeing an artist of your merit bid so eagerly f?>r the picture, I supposed that it must be valuable Now, tell me, sir, at what do yi u estimate its value ?" " About threo francs and a half," said tho painter ; " but I would not give that for it." *? You are surely jesting." said the landlord. '? for jou bid n< high as 2IO(?f. for it." ??That is true,' replied the artist, "and I will tell you why I did so. You are in posses sion of an income of 2>,0ftfjf. a year, have seized on the furniture of a poor woman for a debt of 2iM?f. I wished to give you a lesson, and you fell into my trap Instead of the jmjot woman being your debtor, sho is now your cred itor. and I Hitter myself you will not compel her to seize on your furniture for her debt." The artist then politely saluted the aston ished landlord, and liaving announced her good fortune to the poor woman, walked away. A Romantic Rk?.iov?The editor of tho Abingdon V ir^inian recently spent a few days in tho \\ hite Top Mountains, and other peaks in that range, and in " all the region round about." In giving his experience ho tays: Tho White Top is the highest peak in the whole Apalachian rang'", and from its summit the most extensive and magnificent view is ob tained. it hac ever been our fortune to witness. '1 he trees upon its summit are just beginning to bud. and the whole face of the mountains is c irpcted with wild flowers, rich in fragrance and gorgeous in colors. W hile we were upon tho summit, and looking out westward with a {jlafs, at Abingdon and the farms many miles >eyond it. a cloud caiue rolling up the moun tain, which soon swept across the top careering like a snow storm, the wind whistling mourn tully and winter-like through tho naked limbs, and the vapor hiding our company from each other. From Southeastern slope, portions of North Carolina, Tennessee and V irginia all fell within the scopc of nntural vision, and from the Northwestern dope the boldoutlinoof old Ken tucky marked the hoiison. 1 he most remarkable tiling we saw upon White Top i* its crowds of trees called La.sh horn. These trees are <f all heights, from mere shrub* up to 50 feet, and tho tops are almost invariably Hat. s> much so, and tiio branches closely interwoven, that persons can stand or walk ujHdi thein Our company, consisting of nine persons, had tho curiosity to ascend to I he top ot one of these trees, where wo all sat down together upou the level platform of foliage, s tine 2a feet in diameter, and two or three of company actually laid down and rolled across the top. This tree is a species of fir, ami is. we believe, peculiar to that peak The timber n?ar the summit is smill and gnarled, but at the base tho trees are giants We saw and measured one white oak l*i feet In circumfer ence, with 70 foot trunk without a limb The streams in tho neighborhood all abound with trout, ('he best table fish in the South west.) and their capture, though laborious, is full of sport The accommodations in Taylor's Valley, six miles from White T<?p, are as good and as comfortable as can bo found in any Country, and the (teople kind, hospitable and obliging. "Fiftt Ykakh IIkx-k."?Right Kov Bish op Clarke (says the Baltimore American) is sta ted to have delivered recently a lecture on tho above subject, in which occurs the following passage ; whether intended for prophecy or sa tire. however, we are not exactly able to deter mine : ?'Fifty years hence, the newly married pair will step into an emporium for tho salo of houses, look over thn book of patterns, select one to suit their taste and means, order it, and it will bo sent home in the morning, put to gether and o- upied at night "In traveling, as great changes will take place instead of the dusty road and crowded car, there will bo a splendid locomotive hote l, Hying over a road earpoted with turt and bordered with shade trees, and heralding its approach with sweet music, insead of the demoniac shriek of the steam whistle, nnd labeled through from Boston to San Francisco in four days. "Instead of the unsightly* telegraph poles, there will be, fifty yoirs hence, a net work under ground, and under the IxiSom of the deep, and it will click off thoughts instead of words. Then the electric battery will light all the street lamps at once, enablw all the clocks in tho city to keep exact time, and kindle the beacons on the dangerous rocks, where now men hazard their lives and wear out their lone ly days. "Then the author will not write by our slow PIvwmss. losing his rarest fancies, but ho will pit down to the newest invented chirographica! instruments, and putting his fingers on tho keys, write as fast as he can think. Tiie Powkr or Sympathy?'Jr. Ilodce?. one of the editor* ?>f the New \ ork Musical World, narrate* the following striking incident: " s'oine few yearn ?iiice, l>eing In a concert room, we do not exactly remember where, wc perceived Mr H.
