ONE AND INSEPARABLE' N O Y AND FOREVER.".
The Three Thleies.
There existed at Boussu.ini 18S (a re
spectable epoch), an honest sacristan
named Vincent Lefevre. He was old.
His good-nature and zesl had assured
him a sufficiency in his old age ; few
people died without leaving him some
thing in their wills. He was good and
simple, and yet cunning withal, and he
lived happy, untroubled by thieves, hav
ing only an old man for attendant, who
was colled Claude, and who treated the
sacristan as a relative.
As he grew feeble, and it became a
trouble to walk, while he still liked to at
tend the weekly market at Mons, where
he indulged freely in beer, Claude per
suaded him to purchase a steed ; so he
went forth one Saturday with a sum of
money, which he was resolved to invest
in a horse or mule.
There dwelt at this epoch three men
at Pomerccul, who had been beyond the
seas in the holy war, having accompanied
Count Thierry d Alsace on his fourth
raili&ry'pjjrimage to Jerusalem. They
had not'brougSt much that was edifying
from their piou"s -expedition. Returning
idle and dissipated, they found it mor;r
agreeable to Jive at the expense of others
than by the sweat of their brows, as many
do in the present day. They had cast
their eyes for some time past upon Vin
qent Lefevre, as he was known to be in
possession of ready racney a thing at
that time not very common; and as to
how they become aware of his intention
to buy a mule, we are told every thing is
known in small places. They went and
pasted themselves in his vray, each at
about a quarter of a mile from one anoth
er, and when he came by on his mule,
which he had purchased for six florins,
the first rogue said to him :
"Heaven protect you, Messire Vin
cent! Have you made a good bargain at
the market of Mons ?"
As you see," he replied, "I bought

indignantly. And shruggfng his shoal
derSt he conlinued way.
The second roue he came up to saiu
ted him after the same fashion, and ask-
ed him if there had been a good market
that dav at Mons.
'Yes, assuredly," replied tne sacristan.
w a .
'and 1 bought there the mule tnat you
It is not possible." replied the other,
'that you took it for a mule ; it is a don-
The old man protested against the sup
position that his mule was a donkey, but
still he went away in a dissatisfied mood;
end meeting the third rogue, who ad
dressed him in the same terms, he felt so
annoyed that he jumped off its back with
greater activity than would nave oeen
expected from his age, saying: "If it is
an ass. take it, and make what you can
of it." And he returned home on foot
When he came in and related what
had happened Claude laughed at him.
"Relative," he said, "they have piayea
you a trick, and for the future every one
at Ilarchis, at Pomerosul, and at Saint
Ghislain, will look upon you as a fool."
"Well, do not vex yourself,-' replied
the sacristanafter haviug ruminated a
few minutes ; "if they have played rr.e a
trick I will play them two.?' i
So the next day the old man went on
to Quaregnon, and he bought 'two white
goats from a peasant, which so resemoiea
one another that it was impossible to dis
tinguish them. The Saturday following.
being market-day at Mons, he bade
Claude have a good ' supper ready, and
leaving one of his goats in the garden,
he took the other with him to town.
The three ex-crusaders were there.
"What do you come to buy, Messire
Vincent ?" said they to ths sacristan.
"Provisions," he repued ; "and if you
will come and partake of them with me it
will afford tne much pleasure."
The companions accepted joyfully.
The sacristan, having selected fish and
poultry, placed the load on the back of
the goat, and said to it, as if it could un
derstand him ;
Go awav home, and tell them to cook
the thmsrs forthwith, alter the best tasn-
ion. Tell them also to have a pasty, and
do not loiter on the way. .
The three boon companions locked at
one another in astonishment, wondering
if the old man had lost his senses. The
goat, in the mean time being set free,
went its wav. and Heaven knows into
whose hands it fell. After having walk
ed for some time with h;s three guests,
and Dartaken of some of the old beer for
which Mons yvas tamou3, v mcent L.erevre.

hev arrived there the three ex-crusaders
I . . 'a
aw the white croai in the garden, and
took it for the one they nad seen at mar
ket. Thev were filled with surprise, and
their astonishment augumented when
thev heard the sacristan say to Claude
"Have you done what I sent you word
by the roat?"
"Yes," replied the other. And they
sat down to table, where were the fish
the' poultry, and the pasty.
a he rogues
looked at one another, and deeming that
it would not be easy to steal tha goat
they said to the old man:
F t '
Ay Ay .- Ay
"Messire Vincent, you must sell us
that white goat.,!
"I have no objections," said the sac
ristan, "if you are prepared to give me
forty golden florins for it."
. The goat seemed such a. wonder that
the three rogues counted out the. money
and took it away with them.
Next market-day they said to their
wives : ,
"Have ready for supper for us what we
shall send you.and do Rsyou will be told. "
Then they took their way from Pomer
ceul to the market at Mons with the goat,
loaded it with provisions, and told it what
it must say to their wives. But when
they got home, and they inquired what
had been done with the provisions sent
home on the goat, their wives could not
understand what they meant, for thegoat
had not come back, and, indeed, like its
predecessor, was never rr,ore heard of.
Some one has played you a trick,"they
said, "as you do to others daily when
you get the chance'.'! " ' ' '
The three robbers took up their dag
gers in a great passion, and swore that
they would have the sacristan's life.
But Vincent Lefevre was prepared for
them, and had warned Claude. He knew
that he must act solely on the defensive
with the ex-crusders, for they were pro
tected by the Count qf Hainault, Bald
win V.. the Courageous, who always sid
ed with his old soldiers. When he saw
them coming in so great a passion, he
said to then : '
"Friends, listen to nje. If a misfor
tune has happened to your goat, have
patience, it will come back again : and
what it has done must be the fault of my
relative, Claude, who has permitted it to
partake of some intoxicating herbs. So
I shall punish hirn, as you shall wit
ness." And so sayinsr he drew a long knife
from his girdle, and stabbing Claude with
it there came forth a torrent of blood
(from a bladder secreted in his clothes),
and the faithful attendant fell at the same
time as if dead.
'Oh! miserable wretch that I am!" ex
claimed the sarcristan. "What have I
done ? I have killed my relative :.and now
I must, resuscitate .'hiai. if I have only

he began to play a lively air. Claude

by this time passed away: they began,
ndeed.tohold the sacristan rather in
t a a
awe, and nnished by giving nim iorty
more florins for his ft'ute.
A few days afterward one of the rob
bers got into a great passion with his wite

corering himself afterward he regretted
the deed, and had recourse to the flute.
But it was in vain that he played upon it.
for more than an hour ; his wife did not
come to life again. hen he related
what had happened to the two others, one
of them said :
I suppose it is because yoa don't
know the air that the sacristan played.
Give it to me, and I will try it."
So. in order to make the experiment.
he forthwith stabbed his comrade, making
sure of reviving him and hi? wife after

They accordingly went away, sei?ed
upon the old man, tied him in a sack, and
carried him toward the river.
' As they were going along an incident
nppened to disarrange their plans for a
moment. ihe uount cr nainauu
pened to be passing by, on his way trom
Flanders, where he then reigned, in vir
tue of his marriage with Margaret of
Alsatia. The two comrades being oblig
ed, according to 'the custom of the day, to
salute the "count, "and to join his escort as
far as the next village, they deposited
the sack and its contents in a ditch by
the way-side, and joined the procesion ;
Baldwin being accompanied oy nis wue
and son, the brilliant young prince who
was one day to be lonperor of Constanti
nople." " . ,
In the mean time a snepnera, wno uaa
come to the road-side with hi3 flock to
see the count go' by, was taken aback by
hearing a voice coming irum iuc m..,
which said. "They wish me to wed her,
and I won't, for she is lame."
The shepherd hastened to unite the
sack, surprised at what he saw, asked
the sacristan how be.came mere.
I was cut here." replied sacristan,

do it, for she is lame."
The shepherd said, musingly, "Do yo
think, Messirev they would give her to
"me ? I should be willing to marry ter.
Most assuredly they would give her
to you," replied the sacristan, 'for the
is lame. But you must allow youiself to
be tied in this sack, and carried away
without saying a word."
The shepheard did as he was bade, and
Vincent Lefevre, having tied him, went
awav with his flock of sheep. A quar-
ter of an hour afterward the ex-crusaders
I came back, lifted up the sack, carried Ui
to the river-side, and then threw it into
th8 water, to the great discomfiture of
the poor shepherd. - Thinking then of
the glorious revenge they had had, they
took their way home to their village.
As they went journeying along they saw
a flock cf sheep close by, and resolved to
try and secure a lamb for their supper.
But approaching the flock what was their
astonishment at finding that they were
under the care of the very sacristan whom
they thought they had just drowned.
Rubbing their eyes, they asked him how
ha had managed to get out c the riv
er. Leave me alone " he said totbera;
"you are no better than asses. If you
had thrown me in ten paces farther I
should have come back with ten time3 as

more assured that they had to do with a

A good brother in a New Jersey
church had a call to preach. Being un
able to read, he employed a friend to
read the Scripture lessons. On one oc
casion, the chapter selected was Genesis
xxii, which contains these words :
VThese eight did Mi'cah bear to Na
hor, Abraham's brother."
The preacher discoursed from, the text
as follows ;
"Brethren and Sistern, let us consider

Curious Error and its Result.
A certain citizen of Montrose, it is
said, wrote to his agent in London to
purchase a ton of copper for him ; but
the letter being one of the very worst
specimens of penmanship, as well as per
haps not very .correct in point of ortho
graphy, the agent read the order a ton
of capers. Surprised at such an order,
but nevertheless anxious to oblige his
correspondent, he immediately set to
work and bought up the commodity in all
quarters till he had the requisitearaount.
This, as may be conceived, was attend
ed with the very natural effect of creat
ing a demand for capers (in the language
of trade, capers come to be inquired af
ter), and al30 of rendering them, scarce,
so that they in consequence rose very
much in price. The agent now wrote
his correspondent that he had had great
difficulty in fulfilling his order, but at last
had succeeded in propuricg for him a ton
of capers ; but that capers had since risen
very much in price, and if he chose to
sell he had now an opportunity of realiz-
ng a handsome frain on the transaction.
The Montrose citizen, as might be ex
pected, was very much astonished in hi.
turn by the communication, and the man
ner in which his order had been fulfilled,
but had the good sense to write immedi
ately to sell by all means ; and thus, it is
added, pocketed a considerable sum from
an unintentional speculation and unexpec
ted advantage. .
History or the Bible.
By R. C. Barrow.
The books of the New Testament were
written at different times and places, and
were brought together in their present
form in the year of bur Lord 32-5, at the
coucil of Nice, which was composed of
318 Bishops, Elders or Overseers.
They were then compiled into what is
now called the New Testament. Matthew
was written A. D. 33, Luke, Mark, Acts
cf Apostles and 1st Peter A. D. 64,
John's Gospel and 1st John in 63. The
Epistles vsie written at different periods
after the year 5, the date of the Roman
letter, and Revelations in 96.
All the inspired writings were origin
ally written in Greek and Hebrew, and
without chapters or verses. They were
first divided into chapters by an Italian
Cardinal, named Caro, sometime in the
12ih century, and afterwards into 31173
verses by one Stuart, ia 1546. The
benptures were nrst translated into
Latin ia the year 493, and in English in
1347. The first English translation was
made by Jchn WicklifFe, from the Latin
Vulgate. The second English translation
wa3 by Tyndule in 1530. The title page
bare this in?cription "The Newe Testa
meet dylygently corrected and compared
with the Greke, by vra. Tyndale, and
fyncsshed ia the yeare of our Lorde God

Nemaha City Neb.
American Bible Society,
With your permission, I proposa to lay
before your readers some thoughts with
regard to the benefits to be derived from
a thorough circulation of the Scriptures
in Nebraska. -.-
It is admitted by most of the Christian
work that the Bible shoulJ be taken as a
rule of faith and practice by every one.
Also, that the influence of the Scriptures
is calculated to correct the morals of so
ciety, elevating and producing a higher
state of civilization.
In order to satisfy ourselves of tbij
fact, we have but to look at the condition
of those countries where the Bible has
been an interdicted book, and draw a
contrast with the condition of those na
tions where it has been freely circula
ted. ' " '
In the first you find a low state of mor
als. Woman a slavs to man, without any
respect shown her. Uneducated, she
toils on, subservient to the will of her
master. Sel5shnes anJ corryrtfee rule?
Jo educational enterprise
cr meam t-
poor are trodden Jo.vntaihe earth vu;h-
out any visible means of elevating them
selves. In the second we look upon an eater
prising people, inielligt, with freedom
of press and speech. Woman, her rights
respected. She is man's equal. Col
leges and schools for the education of our
youth. Sabbath schools, churches, and
every facility for the mental and moral
development of the people. Also, in this .
land cf the Bible we have our noble Re
publican Government, the fundamental
principles of which are drawn from the
Scripture, that of justice and equally,
the right of life, liberty, and pursuit of
happiness, which has stood the shock of
civil war and still lives, thank God !
The American Bible Society propose
to place this Book that has been so great
a blessing to the Christian world, in the
hands of every family and a Testament
in the hands of every child that can read,
in this Territory, either by sale or gift!
Certainly, while we look to the past,
may we not expect to see great good done
by a re-supply of Nebraska with the Bi
ble, and tt is likewise necessary that this
supply should be kept up year after year
to meet the demand of those constantly
arriving in our Territory.
The remark is frequently made that
every one has got the Bible here at home.
Thirteen years experience laboring ta
circulate the Scriptures ha3 proved to ma
that those making ihe remark labor un
der a mistake.
In the city of Watertorrn, VI:cr.:3,
2,609 families were visited by i! ;. - .Tit
er, and out cf that number 071 v.-;; 3
found destTluteTbf the Bible.
The city of Aurora, Illinois z
very moral place was canvassed hn
spring, which revealed the fact - thit cut
of 2.04S families visited, 519 wertf :-i
I could furnish a large amount tf s -.-tistics
in my possessicnjshomng the des
titution of portions of cur country here
tofore, but will let this suffice fr t'-9
It is necessary or the fast increuirg
population in thi3 Territory thttL3 ps
fie should be kept supplied wit'u tha
Scriptures, that moral principle
may be established, and that e&cheie;
may learn to love and re?pact the r: ;b:i
of another, a3 well as to leara to be 1 j ii
to God and hi'3 country.
Ia my next, if it should not be ir.ur '
ing too much upon your patience, I 1
lay before your readers the systsr i
which we propose to not enly supply
people cf Nebraska with the 5crir:j:?a.
but to keep them supplied.
