Brown, I regret to say, was not remarkable lor
Jeebion of character. He stood gazing stupidly at the
paper on the table, while a person glided gently into
the room, laid a little white hand upon his shoulder,
and looked up anxiously into his face.
What's the matter, dear ?"
Brown collected his thoughts, and explained that
the dirty piece of paper was the title to the land
which his nncle had bought for him in the days of
yore, and now regretted his generosity.
Of course, you will not accept a repented benevo
What am I to do? It is a more puzzling affair
than you think. If my uncle cannot, and I will not,

then go to your man of business, and restore the gift,
by means of transfer."
44 That's the very thing ! I'll get Cramp to do it
for me ; he lives at the bottom of the hill." And
Crown seized the paper, and hastily quitted the
house. -Mrs. .Brown I have great pleasure in giving
her proper title went to the window, whence, by
straining her eyes, she could command a view of the
Meanwhile, Mr. Silas Brown, who had taken the
same direction, had slackened his pace considerably,
and she saw her husband overtake his uncle, and
address him once more. The old gentleman appeared
to listen, without any further attempt to escape, the
snuff-box being again put intorcqussition. At length
they reached the lawyer's house, and entered it to
The bright eyes at the window grew dim, as their
owner thought that, for her sake, Brown had quar
relled with his relations, and destroyed his future
prospects. So dim were they, that she did not at first
see that the two persons who, after a few moments,
quitted the lawyer's house, arm in arm, were her
husband and his uncle : yet so it was. Mr. bilas
Brown could not maintain his position against his
nephew's new mode of attack ; for if there was one
thing more calculated than another to please him, it
was that spirit of manly independence which Brown
The bright eyes looked brighter than ever when
Mr. Silas entered the house with his nephew, and
looking ut the intruder with great indignation.
Their stcry miv be told in u llw lines. The elder
lady, a widow, had supported herself fur several years
in a small : hop, while her daughter, who in early life
had been under the care of good masters, had accom
panied a family to Spain s governess. At length the
widow fell into bad health, and being unable to attend
to her little shop, 'was soon reduced to a condition of
utter poverty, on which the daughter at once quitted
her situation, and under the protection of a family of
tourists, returned to laiglaud. She could do little
ibr her mother's sunnort without airain leading her
a coui-se which both were most anxious to avoid ; and
thus it happened that hc had been attracted ly the
advevtisei.icnt in the Times, lent her by a neighbor.
Crown learned half of this story in a glance round
the room, and was encouraged to persevere. He in
troduced himself to the elder lady, and exerted him
self to the utmost to remove the unfavorable impression
he had produced. She received him with a politeness
which' at once put him at his ease, and gradually the
daughter was induced to join in the conversation.
What may have been said, I do not know, but the
interview lasted for at least half an hour, and from
that time Brown became a frequent visitor.
Somewhere under the shadow of the Wrckin in
Shropshire, there lives a Mr. Silas Crown, a retired
medical practitioner, a bachelor, and Brown's uncle.
When our Crown was a boy, his uncle Silas took a
fancy to, and even went so far as to buy a small piece
of ground in his name in an improving neighborhood.
Brown had always shown a proper sense of his uncle's
generosity, though hitherto he had not derived any
advantage from it ; for the old gentleman persisted in
retaining the property, and acting as trustee. He
La i worked his way up without help, and he was
determined that his nephew should do the same. It
was a fine thing for a young man. Besides, by keep
ing down the boy's income, he would be proven ted from
making some foolish marriage a term which Silas
Brown was used to apply to marriage under any cir
cumstances. About three months after the adventure of the
advertisement, the old gentleman was startled by a
letter from his nephew, in which the latter for the
first time alluded rather pointedly to those three
t crcs by the new church."
" You have always told me, dear uncle" so ran
the letter to consider this as my own. I have no
right to presume upon your kindness, but I should
be very glad if you would allow me to derive some
immediate advantage from it. The fact is, that I am
engaged upon a work scene laid in Spain from
which I hope great things, and I am compelled, in
consequence, to keep an amanuensis, "which is very
The elder Mr; Brown read this letter with a doubt
ful expression of face. Great work, indeed !" he
said to himself. " Chateau cn Kf-pw'nc! I'll go to
London and see what that boy's doing." And there
fore Mr. Crown wrote in reply to the letter, but he
presented himself, a few days afterwards, at V'J 11am
' Out of town !" ' Xonsense, my good girl," the
old gentleman said to Sarah, who vainly attemjitcd to
oppose his entrance. "This is the room, I think?"
and he walked in without further ceremony. His
face grew absolutely purple as he did so ; for there
was his nephew seated at a table, busily writing, and
opposite to him was a young lady, very simply
dressed but very good-looking.
" Well, sir !" ho exclaimed, in a tone by no means
Crown, as soon as he recovered from his surprise,
shook his uncle's unwilling hand, ami pressed him1
into a chair. As to the young lady, she blushed con
siderably, and seemed anxious to run away.
' Pray, sir, is this your your amanuensis ?"
Poor Brown hesitated, and at length said, " Yes,
"What!" tho old gentleman said, in a tone so
menacing, that Brown thought it best to lead the
young lady out ef the room, Avhispcring to her some
The old gentleman wiped his brow. "John, I
can't tell you how grieved I am at what I have seen
to-day. That you should be so lost, not only to prin
ciple, but even to ordinary propriety"
'My dear uncle, what do you mean ?"
Mean ? why, you won't persist in the story of
that young person being your amanuensis? What is
she doiug here, sir?"
"It's all over with the three acres," Brown
thought. " I must tell him."
" I admit, sir, that I have practised some little
deception upon you, and yet I told the truth."
" I mean that the lady is indeed my amanuensis,
but that she is also"
" Now it's all over," Brown said to himself. His
uncle was evidently taken by surprise. He threw
himself back in his chair, and, drawing out his snuff
box, helped himself to several pinches successively.
At last he spoke, in a much calmer tone, and said,
gravely, " I am very glad to hear it."
Brown would have been ill-fitted for his position as
a comic writer, if he had not possessed a profound
knowledge of human nature. Thought he, this is the
proper time to say nothing. In dealing with one's
relations, there is the great advantage of knowing
that their hearts are in the right place, whatever
may be the case with the rest of the world. Uncle
Silas is one of the family, and he'll come round by
Uncle Silas might or might not be coming round,
but in the mean time he sat in profound silence,
using his snuff-box at intervals. At last he spoke.
" John, I have been mistaken in you. Don't sup
pose that I object to marriage ; on the contrary, I
approve of it when undertaken prudently not other
wise. Yours has been most imprudent. Not only
that, sir, but you have been guilty of a deception
which is unmanly and disgraceful."
Crown felt the truth of this, and showed it in hia
" For that, sir, I have to beg your pardon."
" Humph !" said his uncle.
" But as regards the imprudence of my marriage,
sir, consider that I live by writing light articles for
" Pretty business it is to support a wife !"
" And consider the advantage one derives in such
work from the graceful fancy and admirable taste of
a woman. How many writers enjoy a reputation
which has been chiefly earned by their wives ? When
you hear of Mr. A., author of So-and-So, you may
not suspect how much Mi's. A. had to do with that
celebrated work ; how she pointed A.'s dialogue for
him, and managed his love-scenes, and helped him
with an idea when his plot got into inextricable con
fusion. And then, sir, my case"
I don't want to hear any more, John. Remem
ber, I am not in a passion ; I am not angry, mind ;
but I shall leave it to time to show whether you have
acted prudently or not. Don't attempt to argue. I
consider that, by deceiving me, you have forfeited
any claim you had upon me ;" and Mr. Brown took
up his hat, as if with the intention of leaving the
" If by claim you. mean money, sir, I can do with
out that ; but I am sorry, indeed, to have lost your
good opinion. Still"
You would do it again in the same way, I sup
pose." Brown hesitated. "After all," he thought, "I
have done no wrong ; why should I speak like a
" Well, perhaps I would ; but f assure you"
He stopped, for his uncle had dashed his hat on the
table, and scattered Brown's card-basket to the four
" Very well sir," the old gentleman said ; I see
how it is. You know how valuable the land now is,
and you know, too, that it was bought in your name
You are of age, sir, and may set your old uncle at
" You do me great injustice," Brown said, andrc
peatcd the same thing several times, while Mr. Silas
promenaded the hearth-rug, with one hand behind
him, and the other firmly grasping his snuff-box.
Presently, the snuff-box disappeared into one pocket,
and. out of another came a paper of a discolored legal
apearance,. which also descended violently upon the
card-basket. , ,r
" There i3 the title to the land, .lou will find it
all in form ; and go good-morning to you." And Mr.
took her by the hand gravely, but kindly. What
were his impressions of the bride may be conceived
from the following remarkable speech, which fell
from his lips as he kissed her forehead :
" If my nephew has acted without my permission,
I see here the best excuse he could offer."
Some days afterwards, when Brown, in the ex
uberance of his joy, related these circumstances to an
intimate friend the present writer, in point of fact
he made a tremendous bull, which, as some people
persist in thinking him clever, I shall put on
" It was a very good thing my uncle was one of
the family," he said, otherwise I don't think he
would ever have come round."

They have been used upon Dwelling Houses of the first class,
Ware nouses, Railroad Depots, and Manufactories, and have
been pronounced by Architects, Builders and others who have
a knowledge of their merits, to be of greater durability, and to
be possessed of fire and water resisting properties, to an extent
beyond that of any Roof now in use.
These Roofs require an inclination of only one inch to the foot.
They can be used for a promenade, and for drying purposes ;
and are made available in case of Jire to adjoining buildings.
The materials of which these Roofs are composed, are not
affected by chauges of temperature.
The cost is less than that of any other Fire Troof Roof now in
use, and even that of a shingled Roof. These Roofs are not
affected by the jar of machinery ; and in case of injury, no Roof
is so easily and quickly repaired.
The Corporation of the City of Montreal, Canada, have by a
special By-Law, made an exception in favor of Warren Roofs,
to the Law prohibiting the erection of buildings in the City.
Ami numerous other testimonials from Builders, Insurance Offi
cers, Railroad Corporations and others, which attest the supe
riority of this Roofing over all others for cheapness, efficiency,
ami durability combined, may be seen at the Counting Room of

MENT. Washington, D. C, March 5, 1S56.
NEWSPAPERS throughout the United States will
render a service, in our opinion, to persons having corres
pondents in the Pacific region, by giving conspicuous place to
the subjoined circular in their respective columns.

To persons mailing Letters for California and the Terri
tor its of Washington and Oregon .-Thousands of letters sent
to the Pacific coast become dead letters. To remedy this evil
the Post Office Department, under the authority of Congress, has
adopted as an auxiliary to its operations the following plan for
simultaneously publishing at each and every post office in the
Pacific region, in a list called 44 Pacific Mail List," the names of
persons to whom letters have been sent by mail to post offices in
California aud the Territories of Washington and Oregon. By
this system, a letter may be sent to any ist office in the Pacific
region for a person whose location is unknown, save the mere
fact that he is somewhere in California or the Territories of
Oregon and Washington ; if the letter be published in the Pacfic
Mail List, its ultimate reception by the person for whom it is
intended will be rendered highly probable. To enable those who
may desire to extend to their Pacific correspondents the advan
tages thus offered, the following illustration is given :
SuproBe it is wished to send to the Sacramento post office a
letter for George Wilson, who emigrated to California from Pike
county, Missouri, but it is feared that he may have changed his
location, and hence may not receive the letter. In this case,
direct the letter to George Wilson, (late of Pike county, Missouri(
Sacramento, California. Then, in order to publish the letter in
the Pacific Mail List, copy the address of the letter upon a
piece of paper or card, and enclose the card, together with a
three-cent postage stamp, in an envelope to the Pacific Mail
List, N. Y. Deposit the letter, as usual, in the mail for Cali
fornia, and at the same time drop the envelope, containing the
card to publish the letter, in the mail for New York. From
the address on the card thus received at the New York post office
the name, George Wilson, will be entered in its appropriate place
in the Pacifie Mail List, which is printed and sent by mail to
each and every postmaster in California and the Territories of
Oregon and Washington, and by them posted in a conspicuous
place in their respective offices. The list thus being distributed
over the entire Pacific region, George Wilson may at once learn
from it that a letter for him has been sent to the Sacramento
post office. No person of a similar name will receive the letter,
for the address on it points out that it is intended for Georga
Wilson, late of Pike county, Missouri. Thus maxv letters will
le received that would otherwise be transmitted to the dead
The envelopes containing the advertising cards sent to tho
Pacific Mail List, New York, pay postage like ordinary mail
matter, and must be pre-paid. The addresses of letters copied
on the pieces of paper or cards should be written in a plain and
distinct manner. The three-cent postage stamp enclosed in the
envelopes defray the expenses of publication, aud must not be
pasted to the cards, but simply enclosed with them. In the ab
sence of postage stamps, three-cent coins may be substituted.
It is believed that this circular has leen drawn up so.explicitly
as to require no explanations ; but should thte prove not to Ikj
the case, postmasters will take notice that all interrogatories
must le addressed to the Pacific Mail List, New York, and not
to the department.
The first of this series of lists will accompany the mail of May
5th, and will be forwarded by each succeeding mail.

Post Office Department.
March 5, 185G.
Mr. Woods has my authority to put his plan, as above, In
operation ; but no responsibility is assumed by the department ;
and all correspondence iu regard to this arrangement must 1e
addressed to the Pacific Mail List, New York. That the public
may avail itself of the advantages thus offered, postmasters are
requested to give the circular a conspicuous place in their res
pective offices. JAMES CAMPBELL,
