A PASTOR'S ELECT. BT VIRGINIA r. TOWKIBMD. "Now tell me about it, Weldon. I am so anxious to hear the whole story, and it'a such a oiee evening for it too. It is sooh a luxury to be all alone with 70a that the rain sounds really musical as it drops against the panes." She had pushed a low ottoman to his feet, >>nd throwing herself on this, lifted her sweet free, set in its frame-work of brown soft hair, brother's. " So you have at last caught me. and intend tnrning my confewar?do yon, little sis?" tmilingly responded the young clergyman, as te turned hit eyes from the anthracite blase, where th*y had been dreamily fastened for the ! last half hour, and a beautiful, almost dreamy tenderness seemed to drift into them as they rested on his sister. " Yes; to think you are really engaged Wei* don1 W hat would your parishioners say if they knew it, particularly tne younger portion ?f them? I am somewhat apprehensive their dsfly bequests of bouquets and fruits would b? sensibly diminished. But about the lady?ii she beautiful, Weldon?" 4A woman's first query!" and again that rich smile went like sunlight over the grave but handsome features of the young " I am not certain, Hattie, whether an artist would tbink tier 8*. iier features are not entirely regular, and her cheeks are less rosy than jour own; but the emotions of her deep, gentle, loving nature look oat of her deep blue eyes, and there is a sweet heart chirography in the smiles that sparkl* at times -ver her small and rather pensive month." ' You are drawing a charming Raphael piature, brother mine. She is young, of course ?" 4% Hardly twenty-one." " And?no, I need not ask if her mind is well cultivated, for I know your opinions respecting women too well to doubt this. But is she intellectual?in short, a hook mrm " Well, something of one. The formation of her head indicates a superior mental organition, but all the faculties are well balanced." j " AnI?le4 me see?is she wealthy?" 44 Onlj in the possession of those great jewels ^hich are above all price." 44 But her family?who are they k' I never saw but one member of it, and be was a beggar." 4-Weldon!" The little fingers that had been playfully braiding themselves with those of the young man's were suddenly withdrawn; the quick blood flashed into the questioner's cheeks, and a look of mingled ast?nishment and displeasure filled her brown eyes as she breathlessly ejaculated? " Weldon. yon are not in earnest?" " Yes, I am Hattie. You know I would not jest on such a subject." " Cut you took me so greatly by surprise. And?and"? The little red lips trembled a moment, and then the tears brimmed over the brown lashes, and journeyed slawly down the cheeks. ' And troubled you, too, Hattie??' interrogated the young man, as he leaned forward and caressingly smoothed down the bright hair of his sister. " Don't look so sorrowful, 4arluig, as though some great evil had chanced me. But listen to what I shall tell yoa, and then see if your own true and noble heart, unbiased by social distinctions and prejudices, does not commend my election. Will you do this Hattie, if not for my sake, for His who paid that the poor and the rich were alike in His sight'" Sweet Hattie Marshall! Her one great foible ' was her pride for her kaadaoaae, aoble-hearted brother: it was hardly a weakness ; for he was all that God had left to her of the household over whom the spring daisies had long spread their golden covering : and for a mement she "nail looked with the world'a ?v? uimn >15 K*. tnthal to the sister of a mendicant. But ber brother's words bad silenced the pride-whispers in ber heart, for Hattie Marshall had learned of Him who tu meek and humble in spirit. ' I will do as you ask. Weldon. Forgive me if I have done wrong," she whispered, drawing up closer to her brother, and laying ber head in its old resting plaee against his heart; for very tenderly did brother and sister love each other. Weldon Marshall drew hia arm around his sifter's waist, and then, when the rain moaned and the wind muttered around the windows, and the anthracite fire mingled its ruddy slow with the silver astral light, and Ailed the^parannage sitting-room with a dreamy crimson tight, he told a story of the past, and his eyes jjrew darker, and his low earnest tones full of pathetic eloquence as he told it. It is eight years next month, ilattie, and I k was in New York, engaged in my collegiate stadias. Yon see it was three years after our mother's death, and you were at that time with ancle Harvard, attending school. It was a cold, wild, disagreeable night?and I remember standing at the window of ray snag sanctum, and looking out ruefully into the darkness, for I had an engagement to meet several of my fellow-students that evening in a distant portion of the city. 41 Dear me, how the wind blows!" I soliloquized, with a very feminine shrug of the etHMildere. ae I drew the curtain closer. "I've half a mind to throw myself on the lonnvn wnich looks so proYokiagly comfortable ISii evening. and not attempt an encounter with the elements. It's absurd to think tbey'F expect me such a night as this. In short, I won't tempt an influenza by showing my face outside the doer," was the conclusion nt laj monologue. I remember that I wheeled up (he sofa in comfortable proximity to the fire, located the lamp so that its rajs fell softly upon the volume I intended to eommunicate w"h, and that I > had setttod myself for a long quiet winter's eveningBat it would not de. My eyes wandered listlessly along the passages; they eould not engage my attention. A strange in accountable feeling of restlessness and anxiety aeemed to possess me. At last I resolutely elosed the book, and a few minutes later I was in Broad i^ll^ 1 * ??- " - - wmj. neauii/ pauunog my iouj in yielding to a feeling I ovoid net reaiat. Ah me! looking back through the eight yeara that lie between that weary night and the preaent, how elearty can I discover the sreat Father'* love in it all! " What i* it yoa want here, little boy?"?I see him now jut as though I had eeen him this morning, and tha light from the tall window is falling on kirn jaat aa it fall then, revealing his ragged dreea and pal*, pinched feat area, and the eold rain is dr ppicg off hia thick brown curia, jnat aa it did then It ia a strange, mournful picture?the dark ground in the background, and the little ragged boy, and the brilliant light*, and the graat ?t?rj, with all aorti of rare confections, in front.

"Oh, fir!" he said, after moment's earneit t perusal of my faatarea " I was thinking if I only oonld carry o?e of thoM cake* home to Ellen; the U very sick, and?and (the little fellow' lipcqairerod) we haven't hnd anything to eat for two dart.

I'll get something that Nelly will like better." I procured a basket, which I saw well stocked with a variety of fruits and eonfeotions most likely to tempt the appetite of an invalid, and adding to these all the money I had with me, I returned to the child. " Go home to Nelly with these as fast as you can," I said, " and tell her that I will oome to see her to-morrow morning. Now, be a man, my little boy, and take good care of sister Ellen till then." " And all theae for her?" said the child, as his large wondering eye* roamed over the basket. '-And she has been moaning in her sleep after an orange the whole week. Oh, sir, we will pray God to bleee you for all this; and he will, for mother used to say he would hold those in everlasting remembrance who forget not the widow and the orphan;" and tears of mingled gratitude and delight were showering flnwn 11 t + la 1a?'o fa?* -- ? ?uw tvuvn o nave o? w? pai icu. The next morning, Hattie, I received that letter which summoned me to my father's djing bedside. I had, of course, no time to fulfil my engagement with the little orphans, in whom I had become so greatly interested; indeed, the mourful circumstances which drew me once more to the home of my chilhood banished them from my mind. If you will look down to that time, my little sister, you will remember that April was weaving her green carpet over the meadows before we parted, and I returned to the city to complete my studies, and then to enter that service in which, before my father's dying bed, 1 had solemnly pledged to spend all the life that God should grant me. I had forgotten the name of the boy's residence, but I know that I made several attempts to discover it after my return to the city, all of which proved ineffectual.

The historic page is filled with examples showing the effect of what men call accidents, in giving character and direction to human destiny. Daring the eighty years' war, which resulted in the triumphant establishment of the "United Netherlands," the oity of Antwerp was besieged by the Spaniards under the command of the colebrated Prince of Parma. The possession of that city waa the turning peint in the war as far as the southern provinces (now Belgium) weye concerned Parma bad nearly f;ained possession by constructing, at vast outay, a bridge across the river Scheldt. To blow up that bridge was the aim of tha Protestant forces within the beleaguered eitj Accordingly two fire-shipe? loaded with all manner of combustibles and terrible explosives?were floated down toward the bridge during the darkness of the night. As soon as the "hell-burners," as the Dutchmen styled them, blew the bridge to atoms, a rocket was to be sent up, and thaheavv-armed Dutch fleet lying below were to force their way through, and bring relief and triumph into Antwerp. Had that signal beet made the city wouid have been delivered?the Spaniaras driven out of the Low Countries? firty years of bloodv war would have been prevented? and probably all Belgium would have been to this day a part of Protestant Holland. The weary patriots on the wharves of Antwerp heard the tremendous explosion of the fireships. and anxiously watched for the rising of the appointed rocket. But alas! as Motley tella as in his brilliant narrative of the scene?" that rocket never rose!" And after the lapse of three centuries, it is difficult to restrain the bitter indignation which follows every mention of that stupid Dutch Admiral who failed to mako the simple signal at the critical moment. The history of the Crimean war furnishes a kindred instance of vast results all depending on a trivial incident The night before he battle of Iakerman, the Russians stealthily moved out of Sebutopol to take the allies by surprise. The gates were oun, and the Russians were in a most critical condition. Had tha allies discovered the movement in time, they might have easily driven back the a?mii. ants through the open gates and oaptured Sebastopol in a single nigbt. An English sentinel heard the rumble of the Rusaian cannon wheels as they moved slowly, bat mistook them for market wagons bringing provisions into tbe oity. Accordingly he save no alarm. Had that sentinel bnt opened his lipc, months of bloody war would have been averted, and thousands ef precious lives have been saved. So Providenoe binges mighty events on pivots exceedingly small. Had Columbus not seen the ligbt in a fisherman's boat on a certain night, his mutinous crew might have forced him back to Spain, and the great secret for which ha cam* ? ieer?t a till for age*.

A little more expedition on the part of our loyal troop* would have carried tnem to Manauu on Saturday inatead of Sunday. Johnston's reinforcements would have been too late. The oonfliet of Bull'!
