Henry Welbv was the son of a pom
widow. His mother had early instilled
into bis mind judicious and valuable pre.
cepts v Front childhood he was laugh’
that a good name anti spotless character
were invaluable to an individual—more
precious than gold. A strict regard lor
truth, and a tender sympathy for the un
fortunate and stifl'ding, bad ever eliarac*
terized the buy. Mrs. Welby had the
satisfaction ol seeing her son practise up
on the instructions lie hail received front
his mother. No oath ever polluted his
lips—no falsehood marred his charter,
and no vice leproised his heart. Kind
and generous, faithful tint) industrious, lie
won the encomiums <>f his neighbors, and
when of suitable age was solicited by .Mr.
Haler, a wholesale grocer, to titter his
Charles Ingalls was the reverse of Hen
ry in almost every tiling. He wtts brought
up by indulgent parents, who were in ea
sy circumstances, and suffered him . too
often to follow the ben of bis own incli
nation without being cheeked,. His In .
titer (Ini not believe it to be his duty to
severely correct bis son, when guiltv ol’
any wrong act, and would often suffer
bim to pursue his own course without a
word of advice. The parents of Charles
were of that t la.-s who look more to the
appearance than to the heart. If a boy
conducts well in company, is particular in
bis dress, and is constantly aping the fool
ish fashions of the dav, w ith such all Is
well, the lad must make a sinert ami ac
tive man. Thus Charles was suffered to
grow up, follow tug the bent of his own
perverse nature, till he was ol a suitable
age to do something towards his ow it sup
poll. His lather was anxious to pot him
in a lawyer’s office, deeming the profes
sion oflhe law the height ol’ respectabili
ty No opportunity presenting, he fi
nally seemed a place lor his boy at the
store of Mr. Haler.
The w holesale merchant was a gentle
man of middle nge, who did an extensive
business, and was reputed in be rich.—
He had one or two elder dei ks in his em
ploy, when Henry and Charles entered
Ins store. These li.ds generally lived on
good terms w itli each other ; hut occa.
sionally a dispute would ari*e between
them on account of the overbearing dis
position o/'Charles. lie wtts determined
at times to have bis own way, no matter
how much it interferred with his compan
ions. Rot its Henry was Lind and yield
ing, and seldom manifested angry or re
vengeful feelings, the lads on the whole
lived on pleasant terms.
The\oninz men hail been in the em
ploy of Air. Haler several years w hen the
. conversation at the beginiug of our sto
rv took place. They had often conver
sed on the lui-iitess they would pursue m
after life, and while Harry insisted (hat
small gains and a safe business were to
he preferred', his companion declared that
nothing would sati.-fy him Imt large pro
fits and extensive trade. 7t was seldom
that Charles spent an evening at home
with his parents, or tit the house of his
master. In the summer season he would
walk die streets with his companions, eu
OUR COUNTRY'S GOOD IS OCRS.
■raged in idle conversation, while in win
ter he would resmt to suite shop, where
lie pas-etl bis lime in profitless amuse
ments, it nut vicious pursuits. On the
cmilr.my, Henry improved Ids leisure
limit's in reading and study. His even
ings were general’v pa-sed at home, read
ing some useful bunk or paper, nr in
drawing or writing. His companions
were chosen (mm those who were indus
trious, and thought mi.re of the improve
ment of the mind and heart, than the dec
oration of person, or the gratification of
7t was not nnfrequetitlv that Henry iu\
fjaired ol his companion, on returning at
night where lie past the evening,
‘Oh, / have had a line time,’ would
be his reply.
‘Why don’t j ou read more ?’ once said
4 / don’t love <o read; and besides, 7

—and 1 think it is good advice, find in

w hich lead to everything that is bad.’
4 No, Harry, you know nothing about
it. If) on could go with us ami enter in
to our sports, you would he happy.’
4 That is what I have no desire to do.’
All the pursuasions ol the virtuous
youth could not produce tlie desired ef
fect. Charles spent his lime in idleness
and fully, made a fine appearance m so
ciety, anti look pride in bisdre.-s and ex
A lew y ears passed, and the young
men had completed their clerkship.—
Welby, by the earnest solicitations ol tlie
merchant, was ptirstiaded to remain in
bis employ another year for a specified
salary, while Ingalls commenced business
for himself. The lather of Charles had
proposed, ami now put a capital in his
son’s bands to commence with. He en
gaged it large store, and had it filled with
groceries of the first quality, not forget
ting to parade his casks ol rum, brandy,
gin, &.c. He also erected a hnr in bis
store for the retail of spirits. So here
was the secret of his money making.—
Day by day the shop of Ingalls was crow
ded by purchasers and loafers—for the
latter crowd are ntresary result of a bar.
Pass by his store any hour oflhe day,
and you wtil hear the rattling of glasses
and decanters, and the impure conversa
tion attendant upon such business. If
you have taken a look within,.you would
have seen Charles or bis clerk behind the
counter dealing out to the miserable and
poor as well as the decent and well dres
sed, what lias not inappr<'pri<itely been
called 4 distilled damnation.* Eat I v anti
late was lite shop open to visitors. Pass
ing one day, Henry entered the store, in
quired of his friend what success he met
w itlt in Ids hii-iness.
4 1 do finely,’ said lie.
4 1 regret,’ said Henry, 4 that you have
erected that bar—becutt-e it will hate an

Charles, 4 f realize more profit from the

4 Rut only consider how much misery
you are instrumental of producing.—
Doubtless many a poor w ile and mother
is suffering; because, for a little gain, you
put the intoxicating glass to the lips of’
the husband and father.
‘lll did’ni sell to llient somebody else
would, itii<l I should I >ose the profit.’
4 That you don’t know, and if it were
so, that is no excuse for you.’
4 1 don’t care, I will sell spirits so lung
as 1 can get pit teasers.’
4 You will regret it at some future day
I havii im question.’
4 Rut 1 shall sell, and its no body’s

‘Don't get angry friend Ingalls, I
tint niily speaking lor your good.’
4 Well, | don’t thank you for it. There
is a set ol men about now-a-tinys, that do
nothing but interfere with other men’s
business. They are determined to com, .
pel us to give up selling spirits; hut their
efforts shall lie in vain. They talk about
prosecutions and I lie like, thinking that
we are fools eii nigh *o pay attention to
wltat they say and do. No, we have
more manliness about ns.’
4 R ut, friend, don’t you think it w ould
be for your interest not to retail rum ?
You know there are a great many people
in this eommnnity, who look upon your
business ns not respectable, and oil that
account will not enter your store to pur
chase tt single article. If you should re
linquish the sale, or even empty your
casks into the streets, I think it would he
greatly for your interest in the end—l am
certain it will be so.’
4 1 know heller than that. No induce
ment whatever would prevail upon me
now. Since so much has been said, I will
sell and risk the consequences.’
4 l know you will regret it,’ anil just
as he spoke, a hall’ dozen poor and mise
rable beings entered tin: shop anil called
lor spirits, and Henry left, grieving over
the conduct of bis liientl.
‘ In a year or two Ingalls had become
attached to his cups, and it was said that
occasionally he was seen intoxicated.—
However that may he, Ins business Grad
ually fell off, and it was with difficulty
that he sustained himself day bv day.—
He neglected his simp, and idled away his
time w ith unsteady companions, spending
money and contracting intemperate 4 liOm
-its. Titus inattentive to business, he
<P*VH failed amUd to give up. On set
tling- vtidt bis freeitors, Ingalls could pay
little more than twenty per cent; the re
mainder hatfi been sponged from him by
lys comfmmpns. ami squandered in vic
ious pursuits. Alter idling about lor five
or six months, lie started west in pot suit
Welby continued with Haler for one
year. He had been so faithful to his em
ployer while a clerk, and had behaved
with so much propriety, that his master
concluded in take him into t qual copart
nership. This was an honor entirely tut
expected to flwiry, and the prospects was
brig-ld before him. Mr Aalrr had
been doing an extensive business, and w as
now quite wealthy. The responsibility
of the concern was throw n upon Henrv,
and no man was better qualified to sus
tain it. Diligent and persevering, virtu
ous auk honest, lie had received the sip
probation and respect of all who knew
him. Asa citizen and neighbor Welby
was of great service. He was one of the
most active members of the Temperance
Society, and by his exertions a large a
m oiiit ofgßod Itatl been accomplished.—
He went among the poor iiu-lnutes, and
persuaded them to forsake their intempe
rate habits, while lie advised those wlm
dealt in spirits to rlinqnlslt the stile of it.
He was a friend to virtue, and a benefac
tor of the poor.
Welby had been in business hot a
few years, when he led to the hymeneal al
ter the beautiful anti accomplished daugh
ter of his partner, Mr. Haler. From
early youth lie Itatl been partial to Ellen.
Her sw eel disposition, Iter graceful matter?
ami her indn-irious habits, had won his
efiei tions. Unlike multitudes that sur
rounded her, she thought mote of Iter
heart than Iter face, (he improvement of
the mind, than the decoration ot Iter per
son ; atttl would rather spend Iter time at
work or in study, than at the theatre or
in pacing the streets. Two more con
genial spirits were seldom united. The
marriage day was a happy one to their
friends and neighbors, as weii as to them
selves. Every body loved Ellen Haler
and Henry Well)}’, ami now (bey receiv
ed the smiles and good wishes of all, and
many a prayer was offered, that the bright
morning of their days might not be duud
detl with Sturow.
Several years parsed and Welby con
tinued to prosper in business, while the
influence he exerted around hint was heal
thy and salutary. About once a tear he
would leave hi- native place ami jonrm y
to the South—partly oil business, and
partly (or pleasure. < One season lit- trav
elled as lar its New Orle-us w ith hi- wife.
One morniiijr as they were passing the
street, they uoiieetl a crowd gathered, ami
on imputing the cause or diflictilt v, 1 1 if- \
learned that a poor fellow had been
caught, who a kw nights In-fore hail bro
ken into a store, ami robbed it of a con
siderable amount. While moving alone,
the nfiieer ul justic e appealed with the
prisoner, and a # siitgle glance revealed to
Welby the route nance of Ills former coin
pttilion, Charles 7ngalls.
, ‘Can it be possihV, Elicit, lliat this i.

4 7 believe in my heart it is,’ said his
wife; nnothcr look convinced them.
His dress was very shabby—he bore
the imprint of vice and intemperance—
but lie was burned on, and they lost sight
Henry had concluded to leave New
Orleans on that day but the situation of
Itis olti friend induced him to remain, in
the hope dial lie should have an oppnrttu
nity of seeing him. After several inqui
ries, lie learned the next day lliat Charles
was in jail, and thither he bent his steps
—he w as permitted to see the prisoner—
on entering the cell he found dial he did
not mistake the man, worn and altered as
lie had become; but the thief did not re’
4 My friend,’ said Welby, 1 I am sor
ry to see you in tliis condition, and would
that I could be of some service to you.’
‘O, sir,’ said the prisoner, intempe
rance has brought me hear. For the last
live or six years 7 have hern miserable.
I have snfl’ered in body and mind inure
than I can express.’
4 Have you no friends ? ’
4 l Itatl ft tends once, blit | left them.—
/had parents, but 1 have not seen or
heard from them for several years*. 1/
I hud performed my duty—lived, nsjl
ought to live—l should not have come
4 Sir—T- nin a thief!* and the tears
gndted from Itis eyes. 4 I was in liquor
ami was persuaded to steal by those who
have left me to suffer. Oh, that I had
my life to live over again ! How differ
ent would be my course ! Then if a
friend advised me, l would hearken to
1 sympathize with yon, and if it were
in ttiy power, 1 would release you from
prison, that )ou might he abetter man.’
4 Sir, who nitty l call you. I have
found no one to sympathise in my sorrow,
and to speak a friendly word to me since
I left my native place. VY'ho may I call
4 My name is Henry Welby.’
4 G tod ben vens! my old friend and
companion—in truth it is lie. I knew
your voice—your looks,’ and the poor
fellow could say no more for very joy.
After a few minutes, Charles related
all that had befallen him since he left
Portland. In truth lie Itnd suffered by
land and by water. Olten he wa depriv
ed of all the necessaries of life, and yet he
roulinoed In drink, till he was over per
suaded’ by a £ng of villinns to steal.
YVhell Henry left the prison, lie prom
ised to exert himself to the utmost, to ob. •
tain the release of his intemperate, but, as
he now believed, penitent friend. After
remaining in New Orleans a week or
mitre, lie finally had the satisfaction of
taking Ingall by die nrnt and leading
him from the prison, lie was furnished
w ith suitable clothing, and sufficient limn
cv given hint to pay Itis passage home.—
When he arrived, he was taken as clerk
into the store of Hitler and Welby, where
for years he conducted himself with the
utmost propriety. A drop of spirits nev
er again entered Ids lips, lie became one
of the most efficient members of the Tem
perance Society, and is now using Itis
strongest endeavors to advance the glo
lions cause. He was lan ly united to a
a worthy woman. The debt be owes bis
friend Its often repeats lie cannot pay.
4 Ami but for you,* lie recently told itim,

vagabond and a curse.*
Such is the influences of kindness!—
How glorious the results ! Ye who have
