One -if the most saddening ami humiliating exhibitions which hu man nature ever makes of itself, is in its greedy credulity touching all reports of the misdemeanors of good men. If a man stand hbdi as a moral foree in the community; rf he stand asthe rehiiker and denouncer of social and political sin; if he he looked up to hy anv considerahle ntimber of people as an example of virtue; if t lie whole trend and pow er of his hie be in a hiirh and "pure direction;cif his personality and in fluence render ativ allegation against his character most improb able, then most readily does any such allegation lird eager believers. It matters not from what source the slander may come. Multitudes will be iiilluenced by a report against a good mairs character from one who would not be believ ed under oath in any matter involv ing the pecuniary interest of liliy cents. The slanderer may be noto riously base may be a panderer to the worst passions and the lowest vices may be a shameless sinner against social virtue may be a thief, a notorious liar, a drunkard, a libertine, or u harlot all this . matters nothing. The engine that i j. lotted iu the belief that, after all, men are alike that no one of them, however much he may profess, is better titan anothei. It is quite essential to his comfort that he cherish and fortify himself in this conviction. So, when any great scan ia! arises in quarters where I c " vwu t' ! condemned, he listens with reauy ! t ai s. and is u u i it 1st tikab! v triad. i i. . c i i. :......! .,...1 i.:., I We say this is nat ura!, however base I and maii'rnant it mav be: but when I 1'cople reputed good nay, people j pro fesMng to be Ciiristian shrug ( , u.lr ylj , ,!!.!,, .,,.,1 b-i . I their feeble head.--, while a foul ' scandal touches vitally the charac- terof otie of their own nutnber.atid i menaces the extiuguishinent ol an ! itilluence, higher or hmnbler, by j which the world is made better, we j hang our heads with shame, or raise ! them with indignation. If such a thing as this is natural, it proves 'just one thing, viz., that these men a re hypocrites. There is no man. j Christian or Pagan, who can rejoice I in the faintest degree over the j reputed fall of anv other man from rectitude,-without, being at heart :i scamp. .Ml this readiness to In-live evil of others, especially of those .who have been reputed to be emi nently good, is an evidence of con scious weakness under temptation, or of conscious proclivity to vice that finds comfort in eminent com panionship. There is no better test Of purity and true goodness than reluctance to think evil of one's neighbor, and absolute incapacity to believe an evil report about good men except upon the most trustworthy testi mony. Alas, that this large and lovely charity is so rare! Jh.it it is only with those who possissthis charity that men accused of sins against society have an equal chance with those accused, under tlie forms of law, of crime. Kverv man brought to trial lor crime k pros urncd to be innocent until he is proved to be guilty; but, with the world at hug", every mr.n slandered is presumed to be guilty until he proves himself to be innocent, and even then it takes the liberty of doubting the testimony. livery" jnati who rejoices in a scandal thereby advertises the fact of his own entrust woi thiness ; and cverv maii who is pained by it, and refuses to be impressed by it,uiiconscious icveals his own purity. He cannot believe a bad thing done by one he regards :i a good man, simplv be cause he knows he would not do it hinisvo". He gives "credit to others for the virtue that is consciously in his own possession, while the base men arouml him, whether Christian in name or not, withhold that credit because they cannot believe in the existence of a virtue of which tho are consciously empty. When the Master uttered the words, ' Let him that is without sin among you first cast a stone at her," he knew that none but conscious delinotlents would have the disposition to do? so; and when, under this rebuke, every fierce accuser retired over whelmed, He, t lie sink s, wrote the woman's crime in the sand for heavenly rains to efface'. If He "could do this in a case of guilt not disputed, it certainly becomes his followers to stand together around every cae ct their number whom o malice or revenge assails with slan ders to which his or her whole lite tiives the lie. In a world full of influences and tendences to evil,where every good force is needed, and needs; to be jealously cherished ami guarded, there is no choicer treasure and no more benelicieiit power ,lhan a sound character. This is not only the highest result of all the best forces of our civilization, bub-it is the builder of those forces in socie ty and the State. Society cannot afford to have it wasted or destroy ed ; and its instinct of self-preservation demands that it shall not be sullered. r There is nothing so sen sitive and nothing, so sacred as character; and every tender charityt and loyal fricndship,and chivalrous aiil'ction,cand manly sentiment and impulse, ought to entrench them selves around every true character in the community so thoroughly that a breath of calumny shall be as harmless as an idle wind. If they cannot do this, then no man is sale who refuses to mak terms with the devil, and he is at liberty to pick his victims where he will. J (1. 1 Tolland tSci't biter's for .faatari. Q- O- tVho Can Afford 1W If we take a sordid view of the matter, how many persons are there i who can ailord to drink? Not more than one in three score. Can ! the farmer, the merchant, the me J chatiie, the laboring man? Most ot t hem have a little more money than will supply their indi-pensa- hie physical, intellectual and moral wants. It is plain then that they cannot become eonsumer.s ol strong drinks, without curtailing their nec essary supplies of food, raimanl, in tellectual refreshments and other necessaries. Who then can aflord to" drink? Say you "the rich?"' So they can, so far as money is con cerned. JJut is money the only tiling expended by the drinker? Ah, no. lie alone ought to drink from the ruinous bowl who can afford to incur its moral and phys ical penalties can ailord to ruin his own character and soul to im poverish him celf, and make desolate and cheerless his fireside to give shame and sorrow to his father, his mother, his brothers and his chil dren and finally east himself into an untimely and unhouored grave. Who is rich enough, heaven 'earing enough to do and give all these in exchange for draughts at' the bar f ruiuscller.- lf anv, let them drink- let them stand as the body I guards of the runiseller before the j c .immunity, and as hideous specta- cles of that degradation which is conceived, born and nurtured in the grog shop's. Who can afford to drink? should be sounded through the land as with a trumpet! Can you, young man ? Can you, hus band and father? If' any are tempt ed to enter the temples of .Bacchus let, them '' inquire of the monitor within their own bosom "Who can a'iford to drink?"" - JOidtrt AVant Any. A few evenings ago, two young men dropped into St. Uose church, where the usual high mass of Christ mas Eve was being celebrated. One of them had never been in u Catholic church before, and was altogether unacquainted with the usages. As there was a very large attendance, they could scarcely get inside the door, but as thev stood on the t hrcshohl, the inexperienced one sp ike to the othc r : "Say, Ben, what do they all crowd around that bowl over there for?" "Why," was tho answer, "that's a bowl of champagne punch. All that come are welcome to a drink, it being Christinas Eve, and I'll warrant it's mighty good, too!'' "is that so? " Well, Em going to try some of it, if I do get squeezed to death." And off went verdancy toward the designated spot. Presently he ret timed, ""-'wit h a look of intense diogust on his face. His companion highly amused in quired : "Well, did vou try it?" "Xo," was the reply, "Just as I got there, and was looking for the cup, an old woman came in, and stuck her hand into c-it, and I wouldn't have drank it after that, if I knew it was made by an angel.!" A New York gentleman, upon being asked by a friend for the loan of a dollar, briskly replied : "With pleasure;" but added imme diately to his impecunious friend's disgust, "Dear me, how unfortun ate! Eve only but one lending dol lar, and it's out."

COURTESY OF BANCROFT LIBRARY, UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA, Listen. cDo you wish to do something towards making your home happy? Do you desire that your brothers and sisters should be "glad to have you with them, and that you should always be a welcome companion to your parents or your children? Do you want to have your society coveted everywhere, and too feel, the while, that vou ai e doing good I as well as giving pleasure? Would j you like to help people to think I well, and :to' have them save their best thoughts for you? Would it please you to get all the good you can out ot the people you know? If so, learn to listen. But first learn what listening is for it is not merely the exercise of tho sense of hearing. The stu- ! pidest of us all can keep ears open and mouth shut. lo listen piop erly means to make other people talk properly. That is a social defi nition, if it is not a Websterian one. The good listener is n cause of talking in others, -and by a proper exercise of this valuable and too scarce gift, makes the dif fident say what they think, and the verbose think what .they say. For the greatest talkers are careful when they iind they have a good listener. They know that they may not often be so fortunate, and they talk their best. The adept in listening may sometimes hear more prosing than he likes, but if he be skillful -this will not often happen. When it is impossible to get anything interesting or' use ful out of a man, he. need be listen ed to no longer. Every one of sense will agree to that. . But it is aston ishing how many good things some very unpromising persons will say if they bo properly ami conscien tiously listened to. To be sure it is very hard for some persons to listen. They have a gift for talking, and thov like to exercise it. But these are the very persons who should do a great deal of listening. They know what a luxury it is to talk, and they should give their families and friends a chance to learn the . art. "Besides, like farmers, they will often find much advantage in a rotation of crops. A season of listening is often a most excellent preparative, for a season of talk. It is olen supposed that ifa man has a good thing to. say, he will say it, but this is not necessarily the case. Very often he never says it, because no one will give him a chance. He don't want to waste his speech on fools, and the smart folks want him to content himself with ..hearing what they have to say. This happens not in con nection with very good things per haps, but with things that might lead to very good things every dav and every hour, in thousands of families all over the land to say nothing of society. There arc those who so seldom have a chance to speak to interest ed ears, that they gradually with draw themselves into themselves, where, not generally finding much, they intellectually pine away. Te be sure, we should not fail to become good talkers, if we can; but, do what we may, we can only make one talker of ourselves, where as, bv proper listening, we may make a dozen talkers of either peo ple.

The last frolic be fore he went back to his studies was a long tramp after hazel nuts. As they were hurrying along in high glee thev came upon a dicour-age-d 'looking man and a discour aged looking cart. y-' The Cart was standing before an orchard. The man was trying to pull it up the hill to his own house. The bovs did not wait to be invit ed, but" ran to h'-lp with a good will. "Push, pu-h," was the cry. The man brightened up; the cart trundled .along as fast as rheuma tism would do it, and in live minutes they all stood panting at tho top of tiie"hilh r, "Obliged to ye," said the man. "vou just wait a minute;"' and he hurried into the house, while t-wo or three pink-aproned children peeped eitit of the door. "Now, boys," said cousin Will, " this is a small thing; but I wish we could all take a motto out of it and keen it for life. "Push!" it is just the word for a grand clear morning like this. " If anybody is in trouble, and you set-it, don't stand back; push ! " Wherever there's a kind thing, a happy thing, a p'.ea-ant thing, a Christian thing, whether it is your own or.not, whether it is home or in town', at church or at school, just help with ail your might; push!" At that moment the farmer came out with a dish of his wife's best doughnuts, and a dish of his own best apples; and that was tho last of the little sermon. o o o and From the English Medical Tress. Considerable progress lias been made in the production of a sub stitute for paper that would be a boon to hospitals as well as private houses. The new wall decorations to supercede paper hangings, and paintjare thin sheets of metal painteel over by a patented pro cess. They are artistic in appear ance, like most French product and said to be durable, Tinfoil in sheets, thickness of ordinary writ ing paper, is the material on which this new style of mural decoration, including gilding,is executed. Tin foil is pliable and supple,sullieiently tough not to be easily torn, and oilers a smooth and uniform sur lace. It forms an excellent base for the work executed upon it. It also, possesses the advantage of being water proof, a property well known to architects and builders, who frequently use it to cover damp walls, on which, without, that covering, any decorative work would soon perish. Tho process of executing the painting on tin olfers no difficulty. The sheets are manufactured of a width and in lengths suitable to their application on the surfaces to be covered. At the manfactory in Paris, the ordinary widths made use of are from thirty to forty inches, and the length five metres, or rather meire.than five yards. The application of the painted metalie hangings to either wood, stone, plaster or iron surfaces olfers no dillicu'ty. The operation is somewhat similar to putting up pa per hangings, with this difference that with the latter the paper is pasted over at the back before being hung, and with the former the surface to be decorated is cov ered with a thin coat of aeihesive varnish, on which, after it has been left to dry partially, the painted tin is ailived with great ease. So little is the difliculty that any skilled paper-hanger can, after a few hours' p radio-, elo the work successfully. From the extreme flexibility of tinfoil, mouldings and cornices are covered with the metalie hangings in a most "perfect manner, and witlf a smoothness of surface and sharpness.-) of out line at the edge and mitres, which the painter's brush cannot rival. The varnish used forCfixing the material is of the nature of gold size, but more adhesive. Being of itself "hyelro fuge." it adds to the protection of paint against damp. o . q I"ov Cio&sio Increases. How gossip increases and grows till it gets into general scandal,"" and is entirely different from the original story, is told by a letter writer. lie says that he was told that if he ever took a house in a terrace a little way out of town to be careful that was the center one1. For one must, be very well aware that a story never loses by telling, and consequently, if lie liv ed in the middle of a row of houses it was very clears that the tales that might be circulateel to his prejudice, would only have the elis tance to travel on either side of him. and therefore, could only be half as bad'by the time they got down to the bottom of the terrace as the tales that inight be circulat ed of the wretched indivielual who had the misfortune to live at either end of it. As an illustration of this he was infornieel of a lamenta ble case that actually occurreel a short time since. The-servant of Xo. 1 told the servant of Xo. 2 that her master expected his old friends, the Bay lev's, to pay him a visit, shortly; and Xo. 2 told Xo. 3 that Xo.'l expected to have the Baylev's in the house every dav, and Xo. 3 told Xo. 4 that it was all up with 1, for they couldn't keep the bai lilfs out. Whsreupou Xo. 4 told Xo. 5 that the oflicers were after Xo. 1, and that it was as much as he could do to prevent himself being taken in execution, and that he was nearly killing his poor clear wife; and so it went on increasing until fit got to Xo. 32 who confi dentially assured the last house, Xo. 33, that the How street officer, had taken up the gentlemen who lived at Xo. 1 for killing his poor dear wife with arsenic, and -thai-it was hoped and expected that he would be executed. , Theyliurry Georgia' murderers into "kingdom come"in short order.
