when he asked him whether he had seeri

in the negative, and expressing a wish t6

conducted him thither ; and after tadmirf

found it was the likeness of the Rev. John

gage to give you ten guineas for the first
ten minutes that you sit, and foe every
minute that exceeds that time yob shall
have a guinea. What, said Mr. Wesley,
do I understand you aright, that you will
give me ten guineas for having my pic
ture taken ! Well, I agree to it He then
stripped off his coat, and lay on thje sofa!,
and in eight minutes I had the most perr
fect bust I had ever taken. He then
washed his face, and I counted to fcim teh
guineas into his hand. . 4 Well said he!,
turning to his companion, I never till now
earned money so speedily ; but what shall
we do with it V They then wished me k
good morning, and proceeded over! West
minster bridge. The first object that pre
sented itself ta their view was 'ft poor
woman crying;bitterly, with three chil
dren hanging around her, each sobbing
though apparently too young to lunderi
stand that mother's grief. On inljuiriAg
the cause ot her distress, Mr. Wesley
learned that the creditors of her hbsband
were dragging him to prison, after jhavin
sold their effects, which were inadequate
to pay the debt by eighteen shillings,
which the creditors declared should be
paid. One guinea made her happy They
then proceeded on, followed by the bless
ings ot the now happy mother.
0n Mr. Wesley'y inauirinffof Mr. Bar
ton his friend, where their charity was
most needed, he replied he knew of no
place where his money jwould b more
acceptableban in Gillspur street! comp
ter. They accordingly repaired thither,
on asking the turnkey to point ut the
most miserable object under his rjare, he
answered if they were come ih search of
poverty they need not go far. The first
ward they entered they were struck with
the appearance iof a poor wretdh who
was greedily eajing some potato! skins.
On being questioned he informep them
that he had bceij in j)rat situation; sup
ported by casual; alms of companionate
strangers for several months without ani
hope of release, jand that he was confined
for the debt of half a guinea. On hearing
this, Mr. Wesley; gave him a guine, which
he received with the utmost gratitude,
and he had the! pleasure of seeing him
liberated with half a guinea in his pocket.
The poor man leaving his place -of con
finement, said, pentlemen, as you come
here in search iof poverty, prayfero up
stairs if it be not too late They instant
ly proceeded thither, and beheld ta sight
which called fofth all their compassion.
On a low stool with his back towards
them, sat a manj, or rather a skeleton, fob
he was literally pothing but skin arid bone!;
his hand supported his head, and His eyes
; seemed to be riyeted to the opposite corj
I ner of the chamber, where lay stretched
out on a pallet 6f straw a young Iwomah
in the last stage" of consumptions appal
rently lifeless, with an infant by her side5,
which was quite dead. Mr. Wesley irri
her situation then required. They were
driven to pawn their clothes,and thqirjre
iources failing, they found themselvesire
duced to absolute starvation. The pbor
infant had just expired from want, and
the hapless mother was about to follow it
to the grave when Mr. Wesley and -his
friend entered, and, as I before said, jhe
husband w'as so reduced from 'the saime
cause, that without the utmost-care, the
must have fallen too ; and as Mr. Wesjey
who was not for doing things by halves,
Jhad acquainted himself with this easel of
extreme misery, he went to the creditors
and informed them of it. They were be
yond measure astonished to learn what
he hab to name to them ; for so long? a
time had elapsed without hearing any
thing of the merchant, or hisfamilv. some
supposed him to be dead, and others thjat
he had acquitted the country. Among
the rest he called on the lawyer and pajn-
ted to him in the most glowing colors, the
wretchedness he hrd witnessed, and which
he the lawyer had, been instrumental
causing; but even this could not m olive
him to compassion. He declared the mer
chant should not leave the prison Without
paying every farthing. Mr. Wesley re
peated his visit to the other creditors, who,
considering the case of the sufferer, la
greed to raise a sUm nd release him.'
Some gave 100, others 200?and ano
ther 300. The affairs of the merchant
took a different turn. God seemed to pros
per him ; and in the 2d year he called
the creditors together, thanked them for
their kindness, and paid the sum so gen
erously obtained. Success continued to
attend him ; he was enabled to pay all
his debts, and afterwards realized consid
erable property. His afflictions made
such a deep impression on his mind, that
he determined to remove the possibility of
others suffering from the same cause ; and
for this purpose advanced a considerable
sum as a foundation fund for the relief
of small debtors ; and the very first per
son who partook of the same was the in
exorable lawyer ? i
This remarkable fact so entirely con
vinced Lord Shelborne of the mistaken
opinion he had formed of Mr. Wesley, thkt
he immediately ordered a dozen busts o

' Wc Rectify no Mistakes.1" AJr. Jes
surun, Treasurer of the Building Associa-'
tion in the city of New York, received
yesterday, from the Seaman's Saving
Bank, a one thousand dollar bill instead
of a one hundred. He did not discover
the mistake at the time, nor until an hour
or two afterwards, when he was within
an ace of passing away the bill for the
amount he supposed it to represent, but
caught a glimpse of the additional cipher
before he passed it out of his hands. Hur
rying back to the Bank he informed tho
paying teller that he had made a mistake.
" We rectify no mistakes after the par-'
ties have left the Bank, was the reply.;
" Yes, but you've paid mc too much
money." ' i
This wasquite 'another pair of sleeves
The officers of the Bank were instantly on
the qui vivc. Mr. Jessurun handed in the
one thousand and received a one hundred
in return, without even a "thank you V
