Well, the brat night after we had got them, as we all sat by the warm fire talking over the matter, Utty called my attention to th I health, the stones of wh:ch were cracked The hearth was entirely out of keeping with the new andirons sl ? wightj* wen placed first as last. The next day a ma son was sent for to examine it. He cam. in my absence, and Wuen I returned I home, your aunt and cousins all beset roe ^1,?^ "L T ' n"rhle sl,b- ?"d they I pat their heads together." * I ' La me !" exclaimed my aunt, "there was no putting heads together about k II be hearth was a real worn out t'.ine I not lit for a pig pen." | *' 1 hey put their heads together. Peter las 1 way sajing, and continued till I RQ{ a marble hearth, which cost me twenty h'i r3if8, iWtrty doIlars at least 1 thought I was done with ex E2 WM Tr0Ug' 80011 1 hegan to hear sly hints thrown out aboutithe Mok work around the fire-place corree ponding with the hearth. I stood out a moment or two against your aunt and tie girls; but they at lenglh got the b tter of me, and I was forced to have marble instead of brick. And then the old wooden mantel-piece was so out of character that it was necessary to Lave a marble one. The cost of all this was was nearly one hundred. And now that tne spirit of improv?ment had pot a start, there was no stopping. The new marble mantel put to shame the old white-washed walls, and they must be painted, of course, and to prepare them for paint, sundry repairs were necessary. VV hen this was going on, your aunt and the girls appeared to be quite satisfied, and when it was done, they had no idea that the old parlor could be made to look so spruce. But this was only a short respite. The old rag carpet began to raise a dust, and I found there would be no peace"? 44 Now, my dear !" said the old lady with a pleasing smile, accompanied with a partial rotation of the head ? Now, father !" exclaimed the girls 44 Till I got a new carpet. That, again, shamed the old furniture, and it had to be turned out and replaced with new. Now, Peter, count my lad?twenty dol lars for the hearth, and one hundred and thirty for the mantel-piece and repairs. What does that make ?" 44 One hundred and fifty, uncle." 44 Well, fifty for papsr and paint?" - 44 Two hundred. Then fift^ for a cat pet, and one hun dred at least for furniture." !JrWe lhu cl<,ck> <00. tod the blind?fifty more" My aunt and cousins winked at each other. Now, contined my uncle,44 so much for this one room. No sooner was the room finished than the complaint came Irom all quarters about the dining-room and entry. Long before this I had sur rendered at discretion, and handed in my submission. The dining-room cost two hundred more. What does that count, Peter ?" 44 Eight hundred, uncle." 44 Then the chambers?at least four hundred to make them chime with the down stairs." 44 Twelve hundred." 44 The outside of the house had to be repaired and painted, of cuurse. And two hundred for that ?" 44 Fourteen hundred." Then there must be must be a piazza in front?that costs two hundred. "Sixteen hundred." llere aunt began to yawn, Letty t) poke the fire, and Jane to twirl over the leaves of a book. 44A new carriage came next, Peter that cost two hundred dollars." Eighteen hundred dollars." ? Then there was a lawn to be laid oat end neatly fenced, a servant to be hired, parties given occasionally, bonnets and v.reuses at double the former costs, and a hundred other little expense# in keeping THE WEEKLY 8TAR. w- Cut, ivTiUULT ? man **?

Yes, Pe ter. I was entirely within bounds when " said two thousand dollars." The opposition was silent. Mr aunt immediately rose and guessed it was bed time. I was left alone with my uncle, who was not inclined to drop the sub jact. He was a persevering man, and never gave up what he undertook, till he had done thoroughly. So he brought out his books and accounts, and set about making an exact estimate of the expenses. He kept me up till after midnight, before he got through. His conclusion was, that the pair of andirons cost him twen* ty-four hundred and fifty dollars. riBKBlDK 8T0HT ABOUT H0FK8TY One evening a poor man and his son, a little boy, sat by the way side, near the gate of an old town in Cs-'nany. The father took a loaf of bread, which he had bought in town, and broke it, and gavo the half to his boy. 44 Sot so, father," said the boy, 441 shall not eat till after you. You have been working all day at small wages to support me; and you must be very hungry ; I shall wait till you are done. 44 You speak kindly, my son," replied the pleased fath.-r; 44your love to me docs me more good than my food, and those eyes of yours remind me of your dear mother who has left us, and who told you to love me as she used to do; and, indeed, my boy. you have been a great strength and comfort to me; but now that I have eaten the first morsel to please you, it is your turn to eat." 44 Thank you, father; but break this piece in two, and take you a little more; for you see the loaf is not large, and you require more than I do." 441 shall di vide the loaf for you, my boy; but eat it I shall not; I have abundance; and let us thank God for his great goodness in giving us food, and in giving us what is better still, cheerful aud contented hearts, lie who gave us the living bread from heaven to nourish our immortal souls, how shal 1 He not give all other food which is necessary to support our mortal bo dies?" The father an i son thanked ?j od, and then began to cut the loaf in pieces, to begin together their frugal ui?al. But as they cut one portion of the loaf there fell out several pieces of gold, of great value. The little boy ^ave a shout of joy. and was springing forward io grasp the unexpected trea sure, when he was pulled back by his lather. 44 My son, my son;' he cried, 44 do net touch tha money; it is not ours." 44 But whoso is it father, it it is uot ours ?" 441 know not as yet Lo whom it belongs; but probably it is put there througn some mistake We must inquire." 44 But, fa her," interrup ed he boy, 44 you are poor aad netdy. anrf you bougnt the loaf, aud then the baser may uii a lie, and?1' 441 will not lisien to you, my boy ; I bougut tue loaf, t ut 1 did net buy the gold in it. if the baker soid it to me in ?ignorance. I shall not be so di*hjue<si as to take advantage ot him ; remember Him who told us to do to others as we would have others to do to us. Tbe baker may possibly cheat us, but that is no reason why we should try and cheat him. I am poer, indeed, but that is no sin. If we share the poverty of Jesus, God's own son, oh! let us share also the goodness and trust in God. We may never be rich, but we may always be honest. ^ e may die of starvation, but God * will be done should it be so ! Yes, my boy, trust God, and walk in his ways and you shall never be put to shame. Now run to the baker, and bring him here; and I shall watch the gold until he comes." So the boy ran for the baker. 44 Brother workman," said the old man, 44 you have made some mistake, and al most lo6t your money," and he showed the baker the gold, and told him how it had been fouad. 44 Is it thine?" asked the father, 44 if it is, take it awav." 44 My father, baker, is very poor, and ? 44 Silence, my child; put me not to shame by thy complaints. I am glad we have saved this man from losing his money." The baker had been gaxmg alternately upon the honest father and his eager boy, and upon the gold which lay glittering upon the green turf. 44 Thou art, indeed, an honest fellow," said the baker, 44 and mv neighbor David, the fiax dresser, spoke but the truth when he said thou wert the most honest man in our town. Now, I will tell thee about the gold. A stranger came to my shop three days ago, and gave me that loaf, and told me to seJl it cheaply, or give it away to the honestest poor man whom I knew in our city. 1 told David to send thee to me as a customer, th'S morning, and as thou wouldst not take the loaf for nothing 1 sold it to thee, as thou know est, for the last pence in thy purse, and the loaf, with all its treasures?and certes, it is not small?is thine, and God grant thee a blessing with it!" The poor father bent his head to the ground, while tears fell from his eyes. His boy rau and put his hands about his neck, and said,441 shall always be like you, my father?trust God, and do what is right, for I am sure it will never put us to shame." A Tail of Tsaaoa.?A friend has kindiy forwarded to us a most remarka ble tail?taken from rtal life?which we cannot conveniently display in columns, but which may be examined at our office by all curiously disposed persons The object referred to is the tail piece and dis tinctive appendage of that peculiarly American serpent?the Rattlesnake. It presents thirty-five rattles and the button; and we leave it to our young readers to consult Dr. Holbrotk, whose book, by the way, furnishes some lively pictures of these natives, and calculate the aee of the individual that furnished this trophy to the victorious baud of all extenninating man. l bs rattle-piece is in perfeet order, and this of itself shows that the conqueror executed his task witb address and quicknsss, C<n? rur, May 14,
