One day, as h wag watdilnghU flock

'llow far is it to the nearett village
'Six miles; sir replied the boj ;'bnt

easily tnissed - J
The hunter glanced at the crooked
tratkr and then said,
4My lad, I am hungry, tired, aud thirs
ty. 1 hare lost my companions, aud
missed my way. Leave your sheep, and
show me th road. I will pay yon well
I cannot leave my sheep, sir, rejoined
Geihardt. 'They would stray iuto I he
forest, and be eaten by wolves, or stolen
'Well, what of that?' queried the ban.
ter. 'They are not your sheep. The
loss of one or more wouldn't bo muck to
your master; aud I'll gire you more
money than you ever earned in a whole
'I cannot go, sir,' n joined Gtrhardt
very firmly. My master pays me for
my time, and be trusts me with hia sheep.
If I were to sell you my time, which
does not belong tcr me, aud the sheep
ahould get lost, it would be jut the same
as if I stole them.'
'Well,' said the hunter, will yoa trust
your sheet) with me wbilo yea go to the
village and get m some food and drink
aud a guide 1 I will take good care of
them tor yoa.
The boy shook bis bead. 'The sheep,'
said be, Mo not know your voice, and'
Gcrhardt stopped speaking.
'And what? Uau't you trust me? Do
1 look like a dishonest man?' asked the
'Sir,' said the boy slowly, 'you tried to
make me falsa to my trust, aud wanted
me to breafc my word to my master. How
do I know you would keep your word to
The hunter laughed ; for he felt that
the boy had fairly cornered him. He
said, 1 see, my lad, that you are a good,
fiithful toy. 1 will not forget you.
Show me the road, and Twill try to make
it out lor myself.'
-Geihardt now offered the humble con
tents of hia Pcrip to the huiigry man,
who, coarse as they were, ale them glad'
1)'. Presently hi- altendan's came up ;
and theu (ierhardt, te his surprise, found
that theiiuiitcr was llm grand duke, who
owued all the country round. The duke
was to pleased with the boy's honesty,
that he sent lor him shortly after, and had
him educated In after-years, (jrerhardt
became a very rkh -m.d powerful man ;
hiithe lemaii.cd honest aud true to his
lIoneiy, truth and fidelity, are preci

W hen they spring from piety, they are
pure diamonds, aud make their possessor
very beautiful, very happy, very honor

Then a greater than a duke will befriend

The following good and true story is
too good to be out of print :
Years ngo there lived in Warren coun
ty a good and pious Minister of the
Methodist Church, the Rev. Mr. Burge.
His young eight year old hopeful, Watty,
was mischievously addicted to the habit
of purloining from his mother's closet,
sugar from the dish ; remonstrance both
by the father and mother proved of no
avail, and though Watty protested his
innocence, the old lady raid she would
watch for him nud -chastise him. The
Uev. Dr. Clos., then Presiding Elder of
the Conference District, in passing
through the section halted at Mr. li'irgc'a
to spend the night. 'He was assigned to
a room adjoining the closet, the scene of
young Watty's depredations. At the
first dawn of day on the Mlowing morn
ing, the Reverend gentleman arose from
his couch and repaired to the closet, a
doorof which opened into bis room, to
attend to his morning devotions, and un
fortunately for him, knelt near the usual
position of the sugar dish. At this mo
ment Mrs. Burge had occasion to visit ihe
closet, and quietly open ng tl e door, dis
covered "Watty" in the very act as she
thought ; highly intended, she admiais
tered several severe raps upon the devot
ed bald head of the Presiding Elder be
fore she discovered her mistake, adding
at the same time, UI have caught you
stealing the sugar at last, bare I t"
It is unnecessary to add that '' Watty"
was the only person on the premises that
enjoyed "the scene that ensued." Ral.
Idle Girls. It is a pain'uj spectacle,
in families where the mother is drudge,
to sre the daughter elegantly dressed,
reclining at their ease, w itb their drawing,
their uiUHC, their fancy work, land their
readfng, beguiling themselves of tba lapse
of hours, days and weeks; and never
dreaming of their responsibility bnt, as a
necessary consequence of neglect of duty,
growing weary of their useless lives,
laying hold of very newly-inVentod stimu
lants to rouse their drooping energies, and
blaming their fite when they dare not
blame their God for having placed them
where they are. These individuals will
tell you, with an air of affected compas
sion, for who can believe it real, that poor.

Mr. Grwler, styled bU signing cf Mr.
Davia' bonduan Impertinent interference.
Allow me to giv yon the trne history of
that matter, aa recently learned it in
.fW Yor from K Cotlcmaa who knew
all bent !u Mrs. Davi went to N.York U
Counsel Chaa. O'Connor, Mr. Davia' conn
el, as to the beat manner of effecting hi
release frtmpriaon. Mr. O'Connor told her
that in bis opinion there waa but ene way
that it cwnld be done, and that was to get
representative nun ef the Republican
party to sign bU bond. Mrs, Divi in
quired who that man was. Mr. O'Con
nor replied that tt was Horace Greeley.
She then ask el hia if he wenld not see
Mr. G ret ley and;get kirn to do it. Ht
replied that be bad no influence with Mr.
Greeley, and that ihe was the proper
person to see him. She said she would
go and tee blm. TSbe went to bis office,
sent in her card and waa invited into his
prirate office. She said to him t "Mr.
Greeley, my hosband is confined in a
casemate at Fortress Monroe. He has
been there for many long, weary months.
He is a feeble old man, and he u gradu
ally sinking under bis rigorous imprison
ment. He will die if be remain there
much longer. 1 came here to consult
Mr. O'Connor as to the mean of getUug
him released. He bas told me that there
is but one way tcr do it, and that is to get
the representative man of the Republican
party to sign bis bond, and that you are
that man. He has advised me to apply
to you. He says -that yon have a kind
heart, and that you will do it, if yon b
liere it to be right. My husband is dy
ing. Mr. Greeley, may 1 hope that yon
ill favorably consider my application f
; Mr. Greeley arose, extended his band
t Mrs. Davis, and said;' "Madam, you
may, for I will ijgn his bond. Mr.
Greeley waa then a promiaent candidate
before the Legislature for the United
Suites Senate. Some of bis friends beard
that he had agreed to sign -Mr. Davis'
bond. They went to him and protested
against it. They Jold him that they had
made a com t, and that he would be elcc
cd by six majoiity, bat that if be signed
this b nd it would defeat him. He re
plied, "I know it will." They told bim
that he was one of the owners of the
Tribune, and if he signed this bond he
would Ipse thousands of subscribers. He
replied, "I know u." They said, "Mr.
Greeley, you have written a history of
the war, one volume you have out, and
have sold large numbers of it. Your
second volume is 'nearly out, and you
have large orders for that. If you sign
t'li bond, these orders will be counter
nJanded, and you will lose a Urge amount
of money." He replied. "Gentlemen,
I know it, bu; it is fight, aud I icilldoit."
He did do it, aud I am informed that he
lost a seat in the Ouilcd States Scuate
and over thirty thousand dollars.

New York, May 24 The National
Woikingmen's Convention to nomiuatc a
Piesideut and Vid? President of the U.
States met yesterday, in accordance with
a call from the Workiugmen's Central
Union of tho Mate of New York. The
Convention was caljed to order at twenty
minutes past two by Col. Scdmoud of N.
Jersey, who was elected temporary chair
man. The usual committees were appoint
ed. A call of the roll showed delegate
from thirty Stales, to the number of two
hundred. . A permanent organization was
effected by the election of Col. Gibbons,
who on taking the chair, eulogized Grant
recent action in regard to the eight hour
law. He reviewed hia policy, aud said
be was the only man who could be trust
ed by the working .classes. A scries of
resolutions were reported embodying the
following principles : Reduction of the
national debt : unconditional settlement
ot the Alabama claims ; enforcement of
the eight hour law a low rate of inter-eat-
as a common national law ; eneonr
agemeot of shipbuilding; giving the D.
c? . m ' l-L . :
o. maus exclusively to t luci tcsu uuut
sliips, and sympathizing with the various
nations struggling under oppression. K .
M. McGee, of NewYork, recommended
Graut for renominatioa ; the Miouri
delegation recommended Horace Greeley.
On taking a ballot Grant received 201
vote and Greeley five. The nomination
of Grant was then ' made unanisaoaa. -Senator
Henry Wilson was then nomina
ted for Vice President by the fallowing
ballot : Wilson, ICO Edwin D. Morgan,

then notified by telegraph of tbeir nomi
nation. A committee was appointed to
prepare an address tn the workinemen ef

ed to bold a ratification meeting at the
Cooper Institute this evening. The ses

California newspapers contain volora
inous dispatches relating to the earth
quake, the axis ef which was tn the
sooth-eastern part ef the Stte. A Yia
lia dispatch says that fully 1,000 diitinct
shocks were felt. AtTibbet's Ranch, 14
miles above lodepeadence, 40 acres ef
ground sank about seven feet below the
surface af the surronndiag conntry. Rig
Owen'f Lake ha risen four feet aioca the,
first shock. Owen's River runs cvexlUj
batik, depositing shoal of fish on shore;
afterward it receded. For a distance of
three or font mile through Lone Tine :
the earth is cracked. One side remained .
stationary, while the other sank seven
or eight feet, leaving a wall ef earth, exi
tending over three miles in leagth, where J
formerly was a level plain. - Innumerable .
cracks were made throughout the valley.
Kern and Oweu's rivers turned and ran
np stream for several minutes leaving
their bed dry ; finally they returned with ;
largely increased volume of wllcr )
Some of the shock were preceded by a j
deafening report, a though the mountains .
were being rent in two, while . others werej
accompauied by a Tow, continuous . ram
ble, as of a train of cars running tinder-'
ground. None of the sufferers ever ex

accounts the explosions and bearing
still continue, though not so violently.
