T h yM oaken bucket, the iron-boun^ bucket, r a e moss covered bucket which hung in the ireUi That moss covered vessel I hail as a treasure ; For often at noon, when returned from the field, . , I found it the source of an exquwite pleasure, ITie purest, the sweetest that nature can yield. How ardent I adzed it, with himds that were glowing ! And quick to the white pebbled bottom it fell; Tben soon, with the emblem of truth overflowing, A*d dripjping with coolness, it rose from the The did oaken backet, the iron bound bucket, Tbe moss covered bucket arose from the well.

ICI^PorseTeranee is tbe eecrpt of raccess. ‘ I’ll tell you something, if you’ll promise to say nothing about it,’ said a young man named Wheeler, to a fellow clerk named Wateon, ‘ I’m no hand at keeping secrets,’ returned Watson/ ‘ so you had better not tell jne.’ ‘ Ohj^ yes, I will. But you musn’t say any thing about it. You know I had a check for my quarter’s salary to day ?' ‘ Yes.’ • It was for three hundreS dollars. Now look here.’ And, as Wheeler spoke, he opened a drawer of the desk at which he was writing, took out a small parcel of bank bills, and commenced counting them over. The whole amount was eight hundred dollars. ‘ There is what 1 received for my check,’ wid he, in a tone and with a glance of exultation. ‘ Eight hundred dollars!’ remarked Watson, evin'cing iurprise. ‘ Yes.’ ‘ I thought your check called for^ only three hundred dollars.’ •’So did But it seems the teller thought differently.’ ' ‘ Then he overpaid your check five hundred dollars.’ . ‘ He did, and no mistake’ replied W heeler. ‘Ai n t l lucky? No errors corrected out aS bank, you know.’ ‘ But you don’t intend keeping the money 2’ ‘ Yes, 1 do. Suppose the check had been for eight hundred dollars, and the teller had paid me but three hundred ? Would he have rectified the error? No, indeed ! It’s a poor rule that won’t work both ways. ‘ How could he have made such a mistake ?’ • Easily enough. The counter was lined with a dozen ol persons, wailing with their checks, when 1 huuded up mine. You know how curiously Mr. Y------makes Lis figures ?’ k ’s no great wonder that there should be mistakes sonieiimes. Now what tigure do you call that ?’ The clerk pointed to a piece of paper that lay on his desk. ‘ Yet one might easily enough mistake it it for an eight, it in a hurry. ‘ 0 yes.’ ‘ Just such another figure was on my check.' ‘ Then the teller was not so much to blame.*^ ‘Oh, no. The mistake is by no means a surprising one.’ ‘ But do you mean to take advantage of the error ?’ ‘ I certainly do. If it had been on the other side, would he have corrected it ?’ ‘The loss will fall upon himself ?’ ‘ I don’t.care where it falls. I’ll get the advantage. A man doesn’t meet with such good luck every day.* ‘ Indeed, Wheeler, I think you’re wrong,’ said his fellow clerk earnestly. ‘ We should ne ver seek to secure good to ourselves through another’s loss. The teller will lose five hundred dollars, unless you go forward and correct his mistake, and that will be a serious matter for him. You know he has a large family.’ ‘ Let him take better care another time. But I don’t believe the bank will make him lose it.’ ‘ Even if they should not, the principle upon which you act is wrong.’ ‘That for the principle,’ snapping his thumb and finger. ‘ When a man gets five hundred dollars in his grasp, it takes a large amount of principle to get the money out again. My principle is to hold on to aU I can get.’ The conversation between the two young men was intermpted at this point, and they separated to attend to the various duties that were requii-ed of them. ‘ I hope you’ve thought better of it, and intend returning the five hundred dollars you drew out of the bank in mistake,’ said Watson, when he had an opportunity to speak again with Wheeler alone. ‘You’re very much mistaken,’ was the }rompt reply. ‘ I intend no such thing.— Vo errors corrected out of bank. This is the rule ; and it’s as good on one side as another. The banks made the rule; and let them abide by it. Didn’t this very teller make a mistake of fifty dollars last winter, and refuse to correct it ? 1 know a good many instances of the same kind.- Now r il turn the tables on him, and he’ understand how it feels.’ ‘ You’re wrong, depend upon it, you’re wrong,’ answered Watson. ‘ The teller refused to correct the mistakes, because he did not know them to be such. But you know that you have received five hundr»l dollars not your due, and that the loss will fall upon the individual who committed the error.’ ‘ You need not talk tome, Watson. I know what I am about. 1 just wanted five hundred dollars, and the money has come in the nick of time.* Wheeler wys in earnest,, as his conduct proved. He kept the money, notwithstanding sevpral persons, who came to know the fact, urged him to do what was right. But it proved of no benefit to him, for he lost it all, and three hundred dollars besides, in an adventure made in one of’his employer’s ships, before the year was out. About this time the firm in whose service he was, discovered that a system of peculation had been going on in their es-* tablishment; but were unable to trace the wrong to any particular clerk among the large number employed. Whole pieces of fine and <K)stly goods disappeared mysteriously, and on various occasions the cash proved to be unaccountably short. Under these circumstances a council of the firm was called, and the matter taken up seriously. . * I am afraid,’ said one, during the interview, that the young man in whom we have reposed so much confidence, is guilty in the matter.’ ‘ You don’t mean JWheeler?’ inquired a second member of the house, exhibiting marked surprise. * I do,’ was tbe answer. ‘ Impossible r ‘ So 1. would have said yesterday. But I heard something this morning that has altogether changed my opinion of him. What is it.?’ ‘You remember the adventure upon which he lost so heavily ?’ ‘ Yes.’ ‘ Where do you th in k a large part of ihe money with which he bought the goods sent out, came from?’ ‘ He saved it from his salary, 1 presume.’ ‘ 1 believed the same. But now I learn, that on one of the checks we gave him for a quarter’s salary, the teller overpaid him five hundred dollars.’ ‘ And he kept it ?’ ‘ ' * Then he is not honest.’ ‘ Of course he is not. The act was just as dishonest as stealing.’ . * h’ut are you certain of this ?’ ‘John Philips told me so this morning.’ Philips was a clerk in the establishment, and the real delinquent in the matter under investigation. He had becpme apprised of the act of Wheeler, _ and rightly judged that to give a hint of it to his wn-ployers, would be to turn their attention from him, and fix his guilt upon another, if his peculations were made the'subject of investigation, as he had every reason to believe, was about to be the .case.- ‘ Can we believe him ?’ ‘Hesays Andrew Watson knows it to W^ atson being questioned, fully confirmed the fact. Other evidence was added, establishing the matter beyond a doubt. ‘ I t won’t do to retain him in our employment,’ said one of the firm. ‘No. But who would have dreamed of suspecting him ? It is weU we have not yet carried out our intention of establishing a house in Cincinnati. With him at the head of it as was designed, we might have sustained a heavy loss.’ Not the slightest evidence appeared against Wheeler. Still there was the fact of his dishonesty in the matter of the check before the eyes of his employers, who were suffering loss from some one abont his establishment. Their determination, after long debating the matter, and viewing it on every side, was to inform him that they no longer had need of his services. Nothing could have more astounded the young man than did this announcement when it was made. His inquiry into the cause of bis dismissal was not answered truly. Something about the necessity of reducing expenses was alleged, and that was about all the satisfaction he received. Being a most excellent salesman, and in every way competent to take charge of business. W heeler received the offer of a situation at a thousand dollars a year. Its soon as it was known that he had left his old place. ILis offer he accepted, although the salary was two hundred dollars less than the one he had been receiving. In the house from which he was dismissed Wheeler had been employed for ten years. He entered it as a lad of fifteen, and had always acted so as to secure the confidence and respect of every membsrof the firm. His expectations in life as business matters were concerned,' did not go beyond this house. A branch in Cincinnati had been for some time under contemplation, and it was understood that he was to have aii interest in it, and it was to be under his chaise. His disappointment and mortification were, therefore, extreme. He knew that the cause^ assigned for his discharge was not the real one, for business had never been more active; and had he possessed a doubt on this subject, it would have been removed by the fact that a few weeks after he left his old place, another clerk was eng^ed. This re-actiuu upon the young man’s error, although he was ignorant of the fact that it was such le-action, sobered his feelings very much.—^We say ignorant of the fact, stiil a thought of what he had done, would occasionally cross his mind, and ^ ir a latent suspicion oF some connection be* regret for|baving kept the money, which became atMongth so distinct an impression as to^.trouUe him. The nsney never did me any good, that’s c e r^ aT This acknowledgment he murmurea'to himself one day, when thinking over tie matter, marked the progress of repeut^tt^.' About 9 year after Wheeler has left his old place,ItEe merchant in whose employment he ms, ssid to him one day, on coming in froGb^ the bank, where he had been>to attend to wme business, ‘ 1 am feorry to hear bad news about Gardiner, the first teller of our bank.’ ‘ A h ! What is it ?’ inquired Wheeler. ‘ He hai 4>een detected in several false entries.’ . ‘ It canit be potsible! 1 have always believed him to be a very honest man.’ , ‘So have I. In fact, the circumstances are s u c h ai to show the existence of very strong teniptation.’ ‘How much has he taken- from the bank ?’ : • Only 4ye hundred dollar? have been discoyered|>, and that, he says, is the full amount attracted from the funds of the institution? ; and . ,1 am disposed to believe him.’ . ‘ What ibuld have possessed him to db so ?’ ' f;. - ‘ Very ^ u l ia r , circumstances. He has^ large famiij^, and his expenses have been fully up to'hiis income. About tw’o years ago, he saj* that he overpaid to some one five hundred dollars, which the. Institution required him to make good. It was deducted from his salary, at the rate of one hundred ahd twenty-five dollars a quart.er. In the mean time, debt became the unavoidable ci;uisequence, and under its har-rassment, and goaded by the thought that the bank was unjust in laying the entire burden of ;the error upon him, when he was so littfe able to bear it, he yielded to the temptation, and made five false entries in the bool^ each for one hundred dollars. This is his account of the matter, and I believe and pity him.* ‘ What course will the bank pursue ?’ inquired W heeler, in so changed a voice that his employer looked at him curiously. ‘GardiiW has been removed from his place, and securities released. The Di-tlfe five hundred dollars obtained through the teller’s erroi, yet the thought of restitution came into" his mind. He felt that Gardiner’s misfortune lay at his door—that he had injured him beyond all hope of reparation. But his strong lovfe of 'money, and his ardent desire to accumulate a sufficient sum of 'money to justify him in com-ntbncing business for himself, arose ia. opposition to the honest and nnerous impulse. Then came a warm debate in his mind between selfishness and just principles, which went on for several days, during which time, he was much disturbed.— To testore the five hundred dollara, was to put off at least a year beyond the time when he expected to get into business, the period he so. anxiously wished ta arrive; and his heart sunk at the thought. Then came the question whether the money, if restored, should go to Gardiner or the bank. This was soon settled, however, on the side of the former, against whom the wrong had been done, and who had been so great a slitferer in consequence. ItVas nearly two weeks before the mind ol Wheeler came to a fiill and fair decision. It was in favor of justice. After deciding, he acted quickly. Five Hbitdred dollars worth of slock was sold, and the money sent to Gardinex in a letter, to which, of course, thfere was no signature. He thin left, more comfortable in mind ; especially as Gardiner immediately closed with the pending offer, and cauie into business that, whiie'>it gave him a comfortabjje living for the present, promised well for, the future. j A few months after this, his old employ-1 ers were waitedwiponby the merchant whom • he serving as a clerk. . | ‘ 1 wish,’ said the latter, * to ask you one i or twp^uestions about Wheeler. 1 have , thought lor some time of offering him an j interest iu my business. But, before do-; ing so, it seemed but right that I should : see you, and ask the reason why you did j not retain him in your employment. It | could not have been for want of ability or attention to business.’ No. Few young m^n have his capacity,’ was replied. ‘ Then you had a reason for dispensing with his services beyond this ?’ Di- 4, certainly VhiafidJl..*’ rectors, u iid ^ ’the cirettmstaneee,“VOted-^ ♦‘May ‘i ’tib ^pgnictit ^ toi^ntittire^hitt It let the loss fall upon the bank. O PUO|JU^Ull eUAA>9 -— « tween the overpaid check, and his loss ffa_v_o_r* 1i_n_ t_h_e_, _e_y_es< o^fm hni1so ovledrs .e mIpnleoyers effect of this was to awaken a feeling of But while they pitied the young man, they could not retain him in so responsible a situation as the one he had occupied.’ ‘ Oh dear!’ fell from the lips of Wheeler, in a tone of distress, that waa far more deeply grounded in his heart than the merchant dreamed. ‘ I don’t envy the feelings of hitn who received the temporary benefit from that poor clerk’s error, when he conies to hear of the sad consequence that has followed,’ said W heeler’s employer, as he turned from the young man. How the words stunned the ears tha t heard them! For days and weeks little else but the thoughts of Gardiner’s dismissal from the banl^ was in the mind of W heeler, Most sincerely did he repent of what he had done, and with repentance came the wish to make restitution. While in this state of mind Gardiner came into the store to see his employer, and lay before him an offer to go into business which he had received. In order to form the connection, he miist have a capital of five hundred dollars ; but he had not a cent, was out of employment, and his family dependent for their daily bread upon the bounty of a relative. ' ‘ The offer is a very good one,’ said the merchant. ‘ But can you furnish the capital?’ ‘ No,’was replied, ‘ that is the difficulty.’ : ‘ How do you think of obtaining it ?’ ‘ I know of no resource, unless those who do not really think me dishonest at heart, and who pity my misfortunes, help me.— Can I depend upon you for any aid ?’ • I’m afraid not,’ replied the. merchant.— ‘ 1 have need of every dollar it is possible for me to command.’ Gardiner went away, looking sad and hopeless. Wheeler did n o t hear what he had said, but he was painfully affected by the expression of his countenance. ‘ Poor fellow!’ said the merchant, after Gardiner had retired—‘ 1 pity him, but I can’t risk my money on one who has proved himself dishonest, even though it were u n d e r ptrong temptation. He has a capital offer to go into business, if he had only five hundred dollars to i n v e s t , but he wiU find it difficult to raise that sum ; at least, from people that know anyUiing of his short-comings while in the bank.' Wheeler heard this, but said notfimg.— He was naturally fond of money, and ar-dently desired to accumulate property. He made it a rule never to spend over half of. his salary, and, in consequence, always had money laid up in bank, invested in good stocks, or accumulating by means of such business operations, as he could enter into, without interfering with his regular duties as clerk. His ultimate intention was to commence business himself, as soon as he had saved about five thousand dollars, unless a good connection in some well established house offered before that time. Toward this object, he had already accumulated near two thouealSd ^ialiarK. AbHtogh he hap lost, in en unsuccessful adventure. ‘ Certainl)'. And under the circumstances, we can not withhold a c a n d i d answer. Y ou know that Gardiner, the paying teller in the-—- Bank, lost his place by abstracting five hundred dollars to make gMd his own loss in consequence of having over-paid that sum on a cheek ?’ Yes. And I have pitied hiih very much. It was rather a hard case. The scoundrel who took advantage of his mistake, if known, should meet with the execration of all honest men.’ ‘ We are sorry to say that Wheeler was the man who drew the check.’ ‘ Wheeler?’ ‘ Yes. On a check of three hundred dollars received for his quarter’s salary, Gardiner paid him by mistake eight hundred, and he kept the money/ ^ And for this you discharged him from your house ?’ ‘ Yes ; as soon as we were appriwd w the fact, which was nearly a year after it occurred.’ m ■ ‘ Did you tell him the reason ?’ ‘ No. We didn’t care to do that.’ ‘ He’s not an honest man,’ said the merchant, on learning this. * and of course, uof worthy of confidence. So far from connecting myself with him in business, shall hardly deem it prudent to retain him about me, even in his present capacity. And on this view he acted. From that time, Wheeler’s situation was rendered so unpleasant that, in the course of a few months, he gave it up, and sought another place. . - , . Again he had felt the re-action of his error, without comprehending from whence the effect proceeded. He did not know how much he had lost in seeking to gain five hundred dollars dishonestly. Tenderly attached had Wheeler b ^n for two or three years to a beautiful and affectionate young lady, whose connexions embraced many families of wealth and influence. Her name was Adeline Burton. As her uncle, with whom she resi«fed, was a man of some property, and she was living in a style of more eli^ance than Wheeler could support, he had delayed/urging a marriage, until he could get unto business. But he saw one young man after another, by far less capable and experienced thw himseli selected by men of capital as partners, or introduced into firms to which they hadfprmerly held a dbrk’s relation, while, he was passed by mo« unaccountably.. A feeling of discouragement came over him. He,saw no light :m the future. Anxious to-lead to'the altar'the one he loved, he yet hesitated; for he c o u l d not think of remq^ ving her from her pleasant honie ih to oM ^ all inferior in the elegancies with which 8 ^ was familiar. , , . . While hesitating whether to ask his trothed, f(^ such was therelati«w bore lo him, to name^ao: etrl^ dftf marriage, he observed a f a d ^ o&afige. in her manner towards him.

On the ds^ previous to his intended departure, white passing afohg the street, he came suddenly upon Adeline Burton. 'J'he lady started, paused sl^htlyrand then went hurriedly on. Her face was thin, and wore a'look of and resignation. She turned vety when she swv him.
