It has its parish church "overgrown with ivy on the south side ; the parsonage house is very much like other parsonages, and the squire's mansion on the hill, with its tall elms and rookery, is as like what I have seen in a half dozen other countries as one pea is like another. Again the church warden of Yewford is a man before hand with tho world, one who likes to keep up tho different grades in ciety. ! The lawyer is an incessant talker ; and the schoolmaster a tall thin man, with a pale face. The butcher, too, has a broad back and capacious front ; and the landlord of the Bull, a fae as red as a rose. - .Besides theso characters, Yewford has many others, male and female, old and young, gentle and simple, all of them well worthy of being introduced into thisr naro tive ; but as such a proccedins would mate rially interfere with our present subject, we must, IcaVe them to be severally described by those who have more talent and more leisure. One personage, however, wo must not forget especially as he happens to be the principal fie roof our history. , A.VM r, Douglass had taken a lodging at tbe widow Freeman , hut as tho village knew next to nothing of him and of his con. corns, so tbe good people were at a loss how to speak pf him one to another, lie was a civil well behaved mad, respectful to tbe rich and kind to the poor,- hot no one can live long any where, and least of all in a village, without making fncDds or foes sad-doubtless Mr. Douglass would havo re ceived an earlier intimation of the position which he occupied in the estimation of those around him, had it not been for a circum stance i which for a time prevented the wor thy inhabitants of Yewford from making up their minus about binx. The lawyer, though not profosscdly em ployed by Mr. Douglass, had discover ed a trial was pending, the issue bf which would put Mr. Douglass in possession of five hundred a year, or reduce him to the situation of a beggar ; who would expect then under such circumstances, that the villagers of Yewford, could come to any satislactory conclusion, aa to tho esUma lion in which Mr. Douslass ought to be held until the i issno of the trial should be known! Mr. Douglass, whatever good qualities bo might possess, was evidently not a rich man; and by degrees an opinion got abroad, that hcwagpoorrFor some monthsnc-faction was punctual in his payments as the church clock was to strike the; hour ; indeed more so, for it sometimes happened that the clock was sadly beyond time. ' ;t ly ' At. length,, symptonts appeared which most peopk, wlicthctliving iu towa.ocUe country, aro quick to understand. A few articles sent to Mr. Douglass by the village draper, were not paid for on delivery. The butcher Had a small account unsettled, and widow Freeman had wluspertd to Mr. Per- kins, tho publican's wife, that her lodger for the last month, had not paid her a single si x pence. . ; Tilings were in this critical state, and the reputation of Mr. Douglass hung trcmb. line in the balance, when a few of the villago worthies met together at the Bull, to settle- some thins connected . about the poor-ratesi:: The 1 important affairs of the parish be ing discussed, the lawyer took up the news paper which had just been brought in by the landlord, and -sown read iu a rapid manner the following announcement : -. " The long-pending cause, Douglass ver sus Itobie , is at length decided. The plain tiff proved successful.'' The, lawyer immediately threw down the paper on the table, ' Just as I expected,' said he, ' and just what I think Douglass deserves. If lie had applied to ' mo before he commenced his suit, I could have saved him hundreds of pouuds. .A man must be non compos mentis, to take such a cause into court But 1 saw how the case stood, ho has been led on by a swindling attorney who will now most likely arrest him for cost. So Mr. Douglass instead of having a rent-roll oi five hundred pounds per an num, must ha contynt Li live in Jocaia pan. uies. I never- thought that he w-ould help-to pay poor rates," said the church warden. " Poor rates,"- cried the butcher, " was it ever likely that he -would pay poor rates, when ho could'nt pay his butcher's bills ? It has run in my head for. some time past, that his noble would come to nincpencc, and I told my wife so. j " Had Mr. Douglass taken a lesson from those who were ablo to instruct him," said the schoolmaster, slowly delivering his opin ion, " had he correctly calculated his profit and loss, he might imvo been aware that the sum total of all Iks expectations would only amount to a cipher.' " There was always too much froth about him for Jiie," said the publican; " for tho' ho could talk fast enough when it answered his purpose, he was never the man to stop tokenrmUgrale, or a glassi)rtrandy and water, from one month's end to anoth er. However, he has run up no score at ih(T Bull, and 111 take pretty good care that he has not even a pipe of tobacco without pay ing for it" For somctimrr nothing interrupted the tide of unpopularity which had set in against tho unfortunate Mr. Douglass; each ex pressed bis opinion in his own way, but all agreed that too ihuch forbearance had al ready been exercised, and that it was high time to let Mr. Douglass understand, that an upstart having nothing but a trumpcay claim of five hundred pounds a year to support him, would no longer be counte nanced by the worthy inhabitants of Yew. ford. At length during a momentary pause, the. schoolmaster took up the newspaper, with the idle curiosity of one who has pleasure in reading with his own eyes what has al ready been read to him by another, when, to his great astonishment, and apparent eon fusion, he made the discovery that the par-; agraph had been incorrectly read by -.the lawyer, and that instead of Mr. Douglass, the plaintiff, having been unsuccessful in the suit, he was reported to have, been sue, ccssful. . I -This announcement having been made I bv the schoolmaster, accompanied with aa ' observation on the great advantage of cor. rect reading, a thing which he always tried " to impress upon the minds of his scholars, every countenance - underwent a sudden change. - Tbe lawyer looked as keenly at the newspaper as though be would cut out' the piece withhis eyes ; tho church warden, half opening his mouth and "raising his browi, sat like a statue ; the butcher stared at the publican, and the publican stared at the butcher. . A clap of thunder would scarcely have been mora instantaneous in producing an effect on tho whole group..',. I. The unbelieving lawyer was the first to take tho newspaper from tho hands of the, schoolmaster, and as soon as he Was con vinced of the error in which he had fallen. he burst into an aJIected giggle, a little fb sembling a laugh. You must, be said, " really forgive the hoax I have put upon you, but 1 wanted to soo whether it . was possible to persuade you to believe so im probable a thing as that Mr. Douglass losing his caiisc. I was convinced, a priori, that -a verdict must be given In his favour. ' The . defendant had no evidence to bring for. ward, and I quite expected that he ' would have allowed judgment to go by default. Never did a jury decide .more, uprightly, . and I shall have great pleasure in con g rat- , ulating Mr. Douglass on his well deserved J success. " r - . - I " Ah! ha! ah!' hers burst from.the open mouth of the church warden, who In his turn affected to1 VOiry merry. " I saw " plain enough," said he, "the trick' you were playing us, and was willing to keep up the joke as long as possible. From what had been told me by Mr. Douglass, I knew he had too much cood sense to brine an' that he could not sustain, and it wee but the other day I was saying to justice Villers, that before long, I hoped to see Mr. ' Douglass in the office of church warden, for that a more respectable man was not to bo found any where. Wcr must set the bells toringjM tfie orc may see that his neighbors are almost as much pleased at his good fortune as he is himself. . . ! r The schoolmaster though not bojd enough to assert that hd had at first been aware" of the incorrect reading of the lawyer, main taincd that, had tho verdict been as describ. aa, be should have been justified in the sen timents which escaped him , inasmuch as tho decision of a British jury would have prov ed, as plain as two and two make four, that the- calculations of Mr. Douglass had been worked in . error. JIo declared he bad much rather enumerate the good qualities ' of Mr. Douglass, whom be had always con sidered a man of education, than subtract from his merits J pronounced him worthy to bo classed among pent lemen, and con sidered it the undoubted interest of the in habitants of Yewford to cultivate good fcU , lowship with so respectable a character. -The publican confessed that he had been fairly taken in, but no wonder ; as he should as soon of thqught of drinking a pint of neat brandy, as differing in opinion from ins good leicnrtsTTliSwyeT warden, and the schoolmaster, who had so long frequented the Hull. Mr. Douglass, be had no doubt, was a good fellow at bot tom , and he should be glad to take from him an order for the best hogshead of ale he hud in his cellar. v ' Though the churchwarden stv through the'dceeit of "tfie law-vefi "and "the lawyer , iirWi,T.til ti trirltnry of the ghurchwar. den ;' though the publican laughed at the backing out of The scfiboTmostcr, and the " schoolmaster despised the selfishness of the publican ; yet every one tried to persuade himself that his hollow.hcartcdness was un known to his neighbor. When the party broke up, each indjviou- al determined in his own mind to pay some immediate tribute of respect to Mr. Doug- lass and secure his favor; thus affording; another instanco of the insincerity and meanness of those who. pay . homage to wealth rather than to worth i who wquldr honor the rich though deformed with every vice, and despise the poor though adorned with every-virtue. , . - " Every man is a friend to him that giv. eth' gifts.
