Tba visa people—tbota who manage their aelghbort’ aflain in theorj Bueb better tbaa tbe; do their own in prae> tice—shook their haadi In lulenn eon- clave when Mr. Hepworth married tbe eccond time; but an added abade ot venom was In tbeir eouaelli when tbe flllage paptr noticed, In n flowery para graph, tbe birth of a ion and heir at tbe great bonae. Poor Olarlee,' they laid, *hai no chance now. It wai bad enough whea Hepworth married a chit of a girl, who, of couie, cared for nothing but bit money; but now there la a ion, there is no hope for Clarice.’ A young, fair woman, herself In the very aprlng-time of life, jet having al ready taken tbe holy tlea of wife and mother Into her pure heart, knelt in one of the rooms of the great boase—knelt to bring her beautiful faca nearer to the pillow upon which rested tbe soft cheek of her baby boy. The child of wealthy parents, ehe had married the man she loved and who loved her, and bad gone from one borne of luxury to preside over another. She was very beautiful and many bad thought it a great sacrifice when ahe married a man as old as her own father, yet Id her sweet humility she only prsyed to be worthy of tba lore bestowed upon her, A low knock at tbe door aroused her, and rising to her feet fbc answered tbe lummoui. Upon the tbreibold stood a woman a few yean older than himself, who led by the band a handsome boy who bad leen two summers only. The woman was poorly dressed, la a ahabby mourning, but tba child wore dainty white garments. ■Did you wish to see me?* Mrs. Hepworth asked, smiling upon tbe child. May I come In ?' was tbe woman’s qnpstion in return. ‘Certainly. You look tired.' The stranger accepted the cbair an I looked sadly around the room. ‘Everything Is altered, ahe seid, In a mournful voice. ‘Perhaps I had better staved away. Mrs. Hepworth you have heard of Clarice Manderson?' ‘I have not,* was the reply. ‘I am almost a stranger here. We have been traveling ever since I was married, until a few months ago.* ‘And you never beard of me?’ said the stranger, tbe tears rising in her eyes ‘Then my errand here is indeed hope less. If, In bis new happiness as your husband, my father never even spoke uf my name, it is useless to hope be will forgive tne.* ‘Your father? Mr. Hepworth your father? He told mo be had lost bis ohiy daughter.’ ‘Not that I was dead, I was lost to him by my own disobedience. You love my father?' Just a imile, proud, happy and ten der aniwered her. ‘Then you will understand me,' said Clarice, ‘when I tell you I loved my husband better than father, home or duty. Father would not hear of our marriage, and sternly forbade me to speak to Luclen Manderaon, assuring me that be was a fortuce-huntcr, a gamh|er, and uoworthy uf my love. I would oot believe this. To ms he was the aoblest and best of men, and for him I left all to fly secretly from home and father. I have been bitterly pun ished. When tbe letter imploring for giveness was retarned to me by my lather, with a few brief words ositing me from his heart and love, my husband proved what I had so fondly hoped waa false, de bad marrried the only child and presumed heiress of Hepworth, tha milliooaire, and found himself burdened with a penniless wife. I epare you tha history of tbe four yeara of married misery that followed. Tben my has- baud and eldest child died of ceutagiuus fever, three months later, on the very day this boy was boro. I beard of my fathers marriage. I returned here, baping for pardon; bet tba bouse was shot up. When yon came, I deter mined to make one more effort for for giveness, hoping you would plead for me. Ob, by your love for your child, plead for me. - Think if he was aa out cast from bis fatber’i love, sorrowing and penitent, and begging of a stranger tbe gift of bit birth-right r ‘If my prayer will keep you here, Clarice, you shall not leave your father's bouse again. Mr. Hepworth is in tbe library, and I will ipeik to him at onoe.’ She waited a moment to hatha tha tracee ef tean from bar face, and came again, emliiog, to tbe aaiions group. ‘Cbeer up, Clarice,’ the aaid brave' ly. ‘AVhat is your little boy’s name?’ ^Stephen, it was tbe name of my brother who died. My flnt boy «u called after my father.' ‘Stephea,’ uid Hri. Hepworth, open ing her arms, ‘come here, darling, and kisa yoar grandmother.* The child ipraag at once to the lovely grandmother, klisiog her again and again. Putting him into hli Botber’i ams, the young wife lifted her own baby from its cradle and left the room. In the darkly furnished library, Mr. Hepworth was leining back in his arm- ehsir. A light step rolled him from hii rev erie, and bis wife stood before him. Over her mornln« dress of delicate rose color, that sotted well bir fresh young beauty, fell the long white robes of the infant ahe carried with all the pride of motherhood. Her husband opened hli arme te caress both, and laughed as she said t ‘Oh, theae mothers I Do you suppose, madame, that babies are admitted into tbe ssnctums of legal gentlemen ?' *I do,' said the mother, ‘if the (pgal gentlemen have tbe additional honor of eing tbeir papss.' 'Listen to this moat conceited of mothers, comparing legal honors with the ownership of little pink roly-poHei like that. Did you know, Harold,* lald Meta, her lip quivering ilightly, ai ihe felt tbe deep impart of her words, ‘that this Is my birthday, and yon have given me no gift?* ‘Yon are impatient, little wife,* he aa- swered, ibluking of the enstly bauble that waa to come without fail by none, ‘But I would lika to choose my own gift,* she persisted. ‘Whit caa I giva my rosebud that she has not already V ‘Does not your office include the power of pardon ?' aha asked, her sweet face pallid with earnestness. ‘In a limited degree it does,* be re plied. ‘But, dear one, I shouldn*t like to be known that I bad shown cle>nency to a criminal upeu your aolicitatioa. You would be constantly annoyed by the loving relatives of scampi and rogues trying to move me to pity through your intercession.* ‘But this is not a case of roguery, Harold—only a true penitent; one who erred in extreme youth, was led from a path of duty by a love as warm and trne as our own, but mistaken. Oh, dear husband, do you not know fur whom I would plead? Cannot you guess for whom I would beg your pity and for giveness ?’ ‘Clarice,* be asked, hoarsely, ‘who hai told you of her?* ‘She has come herself to seek your furgivei'esa.* ‘She is here?* ‘Yes. You will fprgWa her? For the sake of our own boy, Harold, let this bn a home for her and Stephen. ‘Stephen 1* be cried, starting. ‘Her son. Her husband is dead. She Is widowed, poor and lonely. Let her return tn your borne and your love, Harold I’ There was a moment of silooce, and the mother softly carried tbe strong, right hand of her husbaud in her own until it rested upon tbe bead of the babe in her arma. He looked down, and said: ‘I will grant your birthday wish, Meta. Take me to Clarice.’ With a tender, loving kiss upon the band that still rested upon her child’s head, Meta led the was back to ber pretty sitting-room, where Clarice waited tbs result of her errand. She waited, with faat throbbing heart and trembling lips, for the words that were to give her sorrowiug, lonely heart peace and rest, or tbe st^n mandate that would close the doors of home upon ber and ber loy forever. Her gratitude cnuld never fail,sha felt sure, fur tbe beautiful woman who bad so iuviogly u^rtaken tbe ofliee of med iator on ber t^alf, and tbe tears rolled down her cheeks as she thought of tbe unselGah tenderness of this stepmother. As she beard tbe steps coming across tbe wide hail toward tbe room where she was seated, ber agitation became teo great for patient waiting, and she stood up, bolding her child by the band, ber breath coming io quick, panting sobs, her eyes dilated with suspcase, and ber whole figure quiveriug with in tense emotion. It was this eager, flushed face, that met tbe father’s eye as be opened tbe door—tbe face of tbe child to whom be had given the entire strength of hii love for yesrs, He forgot her waywardness, ber dis- ebedisnce and the lix yean of ab sence. He remembered only that she was Ills only daughter, the child of bis dead Clarice, and be opened hii armi, with a smile that carried lova and forgiveness to tbe sore heart. There was a cry of— ‘Father, dear, dear father I* And they were folded fast in each other's arms, while Meta drew wonder* ing Stepen into an inner room and closed tbe door. Nut even for her ean, she felt, were thoie first words of reconcHlation. It was not long that Stephen was withheld from his grandfather’s kiss, for father and daughter 'alike tuhied to the gentle influence that had united them once more.

AFEWWORDtmUTMONEY. [From Ihnoba’ Faahloa Quarterly.] Of course you known wbat money Is. Yeu’va seen silver dollan, and paper dollara. led geld dellan,—eagles, double aaglei. and fraetloaal currency, and all the rest of It,—aod I only hope you may alwayi have plenty of them to look at, and feel a lerena leese of pro- prletonbip is you regard them. But you needn’t travel very far around tbe globe, to find that wbat yon call money, other nations don*t regard ai money at all. Take your money to England, and you will have trouble to spend 14. Eng. lisb people will demand Eoglish money for tbeir goods, and until you shall have sold your Americsn money for Eng lith money, you will find it pretty hard work to do your shopping. And should you carry your English money to France you will have to repeat Ihe process, snd buy a supply of French money before you can make any purchases. Almost every nation upon the earth uses a different kind of money, and some of these currency systems, both anciout and modern, are very curious Indeed. In some of tbe East Indiaa islands, certain small sea-sb«lla, called cowrie’, are used as a sort of fraetlonai currency. Theso ahells are gathered on the beach by men who make a business of seek ing them, and, ii they are sometimes thrown up in immense quantities by storms, enabling the gatherers to collect large amounts at irregular intervals, the money markets of those islands are liable to frequent perturbations. It i.i just as though, after every heavy gale, you were able to pick up nickel cents along tbe shore of the Atlantic Ocean by the bushel. Now shells of this same kind aro used as money on certain part* of the western coast of Africa; but as they are less plenty in Africa than in India, it has been found profitable to bring these useleu little shells, by hundreds of tons at a time, from the East lodian islands to England, and to reship them thence to the African coost, to be uied in buying palm ell aod other products. However, we needu*t laugh at -the poor ignorant islands and Al'ricans; for, icircely more than two hundred years ago, a Dutch governor of New York thought he had discovered a famous method of enriching bis province, and established a mint for coining oyster shells Into money. And evea before his time, tbe experiment bad heeu tried in Massacliusetts; but the acuta New Englanders of that dtiy (ictually counterfeited the oyster shell currency, and drove it out of circulation. There is another reason why we should avoid speaking contemptuously of African financial systems, v'hicb ia, that we determine the fineness of our own gold coin by an African system ol weights. Qold U said to be so many carats fine, meaning, that in every twenty four carats weight uf it, there arc so many of absolutely pure gold. The carat is a small Arrican bean, which varies so little in weight, that from time Immemorial it has been used in the marts of that continent as a unit of weight for gold and diamonds. The merchants of primitive time probably introduced this Alrican weight alone with the African gold they bad received for their merchandise; and the modern assayer, who determines a gold coin to bo a certain number of carats flue, really announces that It contains a quantity of fine gold, equal In weight to so many beans of a Central Al'ricao tree, which not one white man la a million has ever seen. Live stock has served tbe purpose of money at several periods of the world’s bistory. Ilonier estimates tha value of the armor ef several ef his heroes io oxen; and the Latin root, from which our word pecuniary is derived, really means an oz, showing pretty conclu sively that the early Homans used cattle as money. Salt has been coined in the highlands of Central Asio, and that, too, in a country where gold was very plenty. Leaden money la current in Burmab tu this day. Cakes of tea circulate io some puHs of India; dried codfish has been used io leeland and Newfound land ; aod musket balls were formerly current in Massaebusetts at a fathing each, and were legal tender io sums of less than one shilling. Coal, bone, lead, iron, tortoise shell, and coral, have all been money'in tbeir turn; and even human beings have served the same purpose. At tbe time ef the Norman conquest. English money wai of two kinds, living aid dead; the former coa- sisting of ilavei and cattle, and the latter of metals, Stanley, tbe Afrtean explorer, men- tioni ihe cost of a^ feast given to i dusky potentate as three balei of cloth, and one hundred and twenty pouodi of beads. He also, while encamped jit a certaio place, allowed each of h*s European followers four yards of cloth, or its equivalent in beads, daily, f^or pocket money. Aod, ai he approacbed the west eoasi, he remarked, with eoa- sidersble disgust, tbit the price of pro- visions gradually roie, until a lingle fowl cost four yardi of thick theeting, and be waa obliged, from motive! of economy^ to give op eating chicken.

A tavern-keeper could charge only six pounds of tobacco for a meal ,• a lawyer could collect a fee of only 150 pounds for a suit in any petty court, or 600 pounds for suit Io the goueral, or supreme court.

Paucy lugglnir Out SIX pounds of tobacco to pay for a dinner, or sending tbe servant to a tavern for a gallon of brindy, and piling 40 pounds of tobacco on his back to pay for it. Those old Virgialani must have been a very uncommercial people, for it was not until the early part of the seven teenth century that this system of pay. ing debts by actual delivery of tobacco money oeems to have caused any serious incoDvenicnep. In 1730, however, warehouse inspectors were Butheriied to issup, for tobacco stored with them receipts which should be legal tender Pur all debtj in tbe county where iisaed. This plan, however, worked altogether too well j for nobody cared to present a receipt for payment at a warehouse, unless be actually needed tbe tobacco lor export; and many of these receipt’, consequently, remained In circulation for years, the tobacco representing them slowly mouldering i« the warebouses all the while, until, wheo the unlucky last holder applied to have bis receipt re- deemed, he got only a lot of damaged tobacco In exchange.
