He had made his last vovage and rejoiced to have reached a haven of rest from the perils of the sea. l)u;ing his abscnce, I had grown from a child and baby of my mother's (for I was the youngest,) into a rough, careless and headsuong boy. Her gentle voice no longer restrained me ; a:id I was often wilful, and sometimes disobedient. 1 thought it indicated manly superiority to bo independent of a woman's inllu ence. My father's return was a fortu nate circumstance for mc. lie soon per ceived the spirit o! insubordination stirred in me. I saw by his manner that it displeased him, although fur a few days he said nothing to me about it. It was an afternoon in October, brirht and golden, that my father teld me to gtt my hat, and take a walk with him. We turned down a narrow lane into a tine open fi?;ld?a favorite play ground for the children in ihe neighborhood. After talking cheerfully on different top ics for a while, my father asked rr.e if I observed that huge shadow, thrown by a mass of rocks that stood in the midst of the fluid. I replied that I did. " My father ownei this land," said he ? it was my play ground when a boy. That rock stowd there then. To me it is a beacon, and whenever I look at it, 1 recall a dark spot in my life?and event so painful to dwell upon that il it was not as a warning, I should not speak o! it. Listen then, my dear boy, and learn wisdom from your father's errors. My father died when I was a mere child. I was the only son My mother was a gentle, loving woman, devoted to her children, and beloved bv every body. I remember her pale beautiful face?her sweet affectionate smile?her kind and tender voice I was never apart :rom : her, and she, fearing that I was becoming too much a baby, sent me to a high school :n the village. After associating ? for a time with rude boys, I lost, in a measure, my fondness fur my home, and my reverence for my mother ; and it be came more and more difficult lor her to restrain ny impetuous nature. I thought it indicated ?. want of manliness to yielu to her r.utbority, or to appoar penitent, 9.1 though I know thnt my conduct pained her. The epithet I most dreaded was girl-boy. I could not bear to hear it said by my companions that I was tied to my mother's apron strings. From a quiet, home-loving child, I ?oon became & wild, boisterous boy. My poor mother used every p rsuasion to induce me to I seek happiness ithin the precincts of ? home. She exerted herself to make her fireside attractive, and my sister, fol lowing her self-sacrificing example, sought to plan enticing games and diversions for my entertainment. I saw all this, but I did not heed it. It was an afternoon like this, as I was ' about leaving the dining-room, to spend my intcimission between the morning and evening school in the street, and, as usual, my moth-, r laid her hand up ,n my shoulder and suid, mildly and iirmly, ' "My son, I want you to come with me.*' I would have rebelled, bat there was something in her manner that awed me. She put off her bonnet, and said to me, 44 We will take a walk together." s j followed her in silence ; and as i wa - | passing out of the door, I observed one of my rude companions, skulking about | the house, and knew he was wailing for ! me. lie sneered as I went past him My pride was wounded to the quick. He ? was a very bad boy, but being several ! years older than myself, he exercised a mat influence over hun. I fallowed mv i to mother sulkily, till we reached the spot where we now stand, beneath the shade of this huge rock. O, my boy, could that i hour be blotted frcin my memory, whicn j has cast a durk shadow over my whole : life, gladly would I exch-nge all that the world can cfler me, for the quiet peace of mind I should enjoy. But no ! like this hugo, unsightly pile, 6tands the monu ment of my guilt forever ! My mother, being feeble in health, sat down and b ckoued me to sit down beside her. Her look, so full of tender sorrow, is present to me now. I would not sit, but continued standing sullenly beside her. 44 Alfred, my son," said he,44 have you lost all your love for your mother ?" I did not reply. 441 fear you have," she continued, 44 and may God help you to see your own heart, and me to do my duty." She then talked to me of my own mis deeds, of the dreadful consequences of the course I was pursuing. By tears, entreaties, and prayers, she tried to make an impression on mc. She placed before me the lives and examples of great and good men. She sought to stimulate my ambition. I was moved, but too proud to show it, and remained in dogged silerce beside her. 1 thought, 44 what will my companions say it, after all mj boasting, I yield, at last, and submit to be led by a woman. What agouy was visible on my mother's face, when she saw ihat all she had said and suffered had failed to move me. She rose to go home, and I followed at a dis tance. She spoke no more to me till we reached our own door. 44 It is school time now," said she. 44 Go, my son, and once more let me beseech you to think upon what I have said." 441 will not," said I, with a loud tone of defiance. 44 One of these two things you must do, Allrcd; either to go to school this moment, or I will lock you in your room, and keep you there till you are ready to promise implicit obedience to my wishes in future." 441 dare you to do it," said 1,44 you can't get me up stairs " *4 Alfred, choose now," said my moth er, who Laid h$r hand upou my aim. She trembled violently, and was deadly p-?!e. * If you t<rch mc III kick you," said I, in a terrible rage " Will you go, Alfred ?" 44 No." I replied, tut quailed beneath her (yes 44 Then follow me,' raid she, as she cra?ped my arm firmly. I raised ray foot-O. my son. bear me : - raised my foot and kicked her? my sainted mother f How my head reels as the torrent of memory rushes over me! She staggered back a few st*ns, and I saw her heart beat against her breast. 4 0, Heaven," she cried, "forgive mm, for he knows not what be does !" fiie gydener just then passed the <loor, and seeing my mother pale and almost unable to support hersilf, he slopped : she beckomd him iu. 4? Take this boy up srairs, and lock him in his room," said she. I.<x>king back, as she was entering hir i join, such a look?it will forever follow inc. It was the last unutterable pane from a heart that was broken. In a moment I louud my .-elf a prisoner .n my room. I thought for a moment I could dash my brains out, but felt afraid to die. I was not penitent At times my heart was subdued, but my stubboia pride rose in an instant, and b*de mo not to yieid. The paleface of my mother ii tUnted me. I flung myself on the bed, and fell alseep. I awoke at midmgh.. stiffened by the night air and terrified with fear ; but my door was fast. With the day light my fears were diss.pated, and i became bold in resisting ail im pulses The servant brought my meals, but I did not taste them. 1 thought tho iHy would never end. Just a twiligb. I heard a foot approach the door; it w a>? my sister, who called by my name. " What may I tell mother from vou?" she asked. 44 Noth?'ng." I replied. 44 O, Alfred, for my sake, for all our sakes, say that you are sorry. She lon-'s to forgive you. 441 won't be driven to school against my will," said I. 6 ?4 But you will go if she wishes it, dear Alfred, sa?d my sisttr, pleadingly. "No, I won't," said I, *'and you needn't say any more about it." /40h brother, you will kill her ! You will kill her, and then you will never have a happy moment !,J f road" no reply to this. My feelings were touched, but still i resisted their influence. My sister called me, but I would not answer. I heard her foot steps retreating, and again I flung my >e!t on the bed, to pasts another wretch ed nnd fearful night. O God. how wretched ! how fearlul I did not know. Another footstep, slower and feebler than my sister's disturbed me. A voice called me by name. It was my mother's. 443lfred. my son, shall I come ? Are you sorry lor what you have done ? ' she asked I cannot tnink what influence, oj#er ating at that moment, made me sp^ak advene to my feelings. The gentle vo ce oi my mother, that thrilled through me, melted the ice of that obdurat e tan, and I longed to throw myself on her neck, but did not. But the words gave the lie to my heart, when I said I was not sorry, i heard her withdraw; I heard her groan. J longtd to call her back, but yet 1 did not. i was awakered from &n uneasy slum ber by hearing m> name calied 'loodiy, and my sister by my bedside. 44G>:t up. Alfred. O, don t wait a mo ment. Get up aud come with me. Mother is dying!" I thought that I was dreanrng. but I got up, melancholy, and followed my aistcr. On the bed, pale and cold as marbie. lay my mother. She had not undressed. She had thrown herself on tlu* bed to rest; arising to go again to me, ?he was seized with the palpitation oi i!>e heart, and borne senseless to her loom. I cannot tell you my agony as I look ed upon her. My mnorse was teufold more bitter at the thought she would never know it. I belies d myself to be a murderer. I fell on the bed beside her. I could not weep. My heart burnt in my bosom; my brain was all on fire. Uj- sister threw her arms around me, and wept in silence. Suddenly we saw a slight motion of mother s hand?her eyes unclosed. She had recovered con sciousness, but not speech. She looked at me and moved her lips. I could not understand her words. 4'Mother, moth er, I shrieked, "say only that you for give me." She could not say it with her lips, but her hands pressed mine. She smiled upon me; and lifted her thin white hands and clasped my own within and cast her eyes upward. She moved her hps in ?prayer, and thus died. I remained still kneeling beside that dear form till my gentle sister removed me. She comfort ed me, for she knew the heavy load of sorrow at my heart?heavier than grief at the loss of a mother, for it was a load of sorrow for sin. The joy of youth had left me forever. My son, the sufferings such memories wake must continue as long as life. God is merciful; but remorse for past misdeeds is a canker worm in the heart that preys upon it forever." My father ceased speaking, and buried his face in his hands. He saw and felt the bearing his narrative had upon my character and conduct. I have never forgotten it. Boys who spurn a mother's control, who are ashamed to own that they are wrong, who think it manly to resist her authority and influence, be ware! Lay not up for youselvee bitter , memories for future years. ^ IT^There were ripe figs for sale in the Charleston (8. O.) market last week, and the Mercury says the (?rop promises to be abundant.
