"She looks unhappy already. I met
her, the other hight, at Mrs. Warren's,
and I thought, more than once, that she
actually shuddered when her husband
drew near: and no wonder, for he looks
like a brute alongside of her. I believe
you were right in what you said, when we
last talked of Ellen."
"Her husband was carried home, with
in a week after their marriage, intoxica

had come up to the wedding, staid for a
dinner he gave to them at the hotel; and
such behavior, it is said, was never seen
in the village before. Poor Ellen!"
The forebodings of Mrs. Jones were
jeven more completely fulfilled within the
lapse of years. Young Newton wvent
from bad to worse, became a sot and a
o'ambder, outraged his wife in the tender
est point, and finally after dissipating his
entire fortune, perished miserably on the
highway, during a snow-stornm and was
ibund, the next day, dead in a drift, with
an empty jug at his side. But, before this,
happily for her, Ellen had broken her
heart. Her children, two in number,
would have had to go to the alms-house,
had not George Brown, now eminent in
his profession stepped forward and adopt
ed them: Forhe never married. Some
men recovereasily from disappointments
of the heart; but there are others who
never do. The idol, once shattered, no
fresh one can win worship. George
Brown belonged to this class. He and a
maiden sister lived together, and became,
after Ellen's death, parents to the orphan
It is not always, reader, that marrying
merely for fortune, ends in a tragedy so
deep. But is never leads to happinesss.
where it does not break the heart, it de

Like smnie dlivinely ha:unted p!re,
Where litry formsn had latel t., , d,
And left behind their olorous trace.--M.oo N.
It was as cozy a little room
As ever a bachelor saw,
And venture he could not ;nto it,
Without some feeling of awe;
So softly lifting my hat from my head,
I fdllowed after my candle with dread.
'Twas the sister's room I was given.
And show that night to sleep in:
Andob! 'twas a snuggery th't only
Mary and Kate shouli peep in;
Nothing betrayed that such a euest
Had ever In ftid the fairy nest.
I have stood beneath the cupola
Of cathedral old and vast,
When the stars were ttoking throngh the dome,
And moonl!ght from tall windows cast
Down on me such phantom-likegleamsof light,
I felt quite appalled and solemn all night
The same reverence and awe I caught
In that erand old minister pile,
Whileclanging echoes were following
31y steps down its gloomy aisle,
Came o'er me again, as I stood alone,
By that bed whose lovely sleepers were gone.
There hang their old monitor mirror,
Which never their charms mingraced,
Whose prompt decisions coald never err
In nttrs concerning taste;
list it nd to be taken quite by surprise,
sagurreotyping a whiskered phiz.
A goblet stood on the toilet stand.
fresh filled for the girlsto sip,
Which I gathered, and dissed from its brim
The dewr of a rosy lip;
And awarm sweet breath seem'd lingering yet,
From the last little mouth the glass had wet.
Aruad, in many a brilliant fold,
Hung robes that I knew full well;
Bia each to me had a history
Of by-gtne fun to tell.
Ah! many a flesh-filled garment expreses
Far les to me than those empty tresses.
I felt as I sood apun the spot
Whe.r the sisters knelt in prayer,
That erring and wild as my ways were then,
I was nearer heaven there;
While spirit-watchers appeared to hold
lnthteir eeping .mry cart.in fodh.
A delightful train of reveries
Awhile banished all repose.
And visions once dreamt and forgotten
Agin o'ertheir pillows arose,
Beaned lighting f1w me a world of dreams.
Dreams of wishlng chitbhood were therse,
How glroalody they beam
And gay blfe.drmss, as much like tife
As all lfe is like a dream;
And Love's wibt, earnest dreams, that shows too well
What the heart may think, but can never tel.
I slept as weedy that clear, still night.
In that white and downy bed,
As when a play-tired boy P're napp'd,
.Wit my at bteneath my head;
AndyearMaerefter will memery resume
The.ory of the sisters' itle room.

T;he officer who arrested Mr. Sapping
ton then gave his testimony. He stated
that about 12 o'clock on Sunday night he
saw Mr. Sappington walking dow.n one of'
the principal streets in a very irreular
manner. lie suddenly sheered off and
ran afoul ofa barber's pole. Mr. Sapping-.
ton then commenced abusing the pole, and
used threatening language towards the pole
for its unwarratable aassult on him while
peaceably going along the streets. The'
officer then volunteered to take Mr .Sap
pington's part, and told him that if he
l would accompany him he would leave the
assaulting party (the barber's po'e) in the
hands of an officer. -After some persua
tion Mr.S acquiesed, and the officer
brought him to the Stution.House, by
which time he was so drunk that he was'
unable to stand.
"What is your business, Mr. Sapping
I ton ?" asked the Judge.
"I come with a drove."
"What kind of a drove ? "
"Thar was a right smart chance of ox
en ani a slight sprinklin' of cows."
"Did you come with the drove from Illi
"Yes, Sir, I reckon I did; and I rode
shanks mare all the way, excert when I
rode one of the oxen by way of variety.
But the animals wasn't broke for ridin,"
so I did'nt make a heap by the change.
Judge, you didn't never footin' it twelve
hundred miles, did you?"
"No, I never did."
"Well, by the time you've been over
half the ground you'll allow that its rather
tryin' to a man's underpinnin."
"Mr. Sappington. where did you pur
chase your liquor? "
'"Thar's only one place that I know ot
to get it."

"You're too much for me thar, Judge.
Thar's about as many barrooms in York
as thar's customers."
"At how many places did you drink ?"
"I drunk at a heap of 'em-but before
that I drunk wunst or twise out of a bottle
that I brought with me from Ellenoy."
"Where did you purchase the liquorI
that you had in your bottle?" I
"In Jersey, Judge. When I squeezed,

"Cane-juice, Judge; I never drink any
other kind. 1 should'nt have drunk that,
but I was most powerful weak. I wa;
right smart sick for a day or two after Y
got here; I thought a little rum would g
warm my stomach. But whar's the use 8
of asking all these questions ?" c
"The reason is, that by law, a person h
found drunk is obliged to state where he s
procured his liquor, if he knows."
"Well, I don't know; I reckon yeu've

"Notquite, Sir. You are fined tea dol

Mr. Sappington here handed the clerk
"I s'pose that'll answer, won't it?"
"It is all right, sir. You are now free,
and I hope this experience will be a sale

,lreckn, Judge, the inducements for
the population in the West to emigrate to
York State isn't 'mucl."
"Possibly not, Mr. Sappington."
Mr. Sappington open the gate and pass

stopped and said : -
"Judge, if that is any law against

After visiting an intelligence ofilee for
two or three mirnings, a fine btliotm lass
of about twenty years was selected and in

"Bridget, did you first put the ground

"Indade I did mum."
"Did you then pour in the hot water ?"
"Sure I did."
"How long did you let it boil?!"
"Five minutes, mum."
"What did you do tlen!"
