Not many squares from Tom's store, on
street, there lives a widow lady,
who, until recently, has been one of his |
most particular friends." This lady had
met Tom somewhere, and admiring his
principles,and approving hiscironinstances,
had eo'^.c the resolution of making him
the husband of her daughter, a verv ni-H tv
o j g %;
and innoco.it girl of about fifteen. After
making r,fo.1 plutiun, Mrs. I. was not the
womi?.i to hesitate in its execution, She !
munoouvcreii to havoliiin attend her daughter
at all the balls and soirees of the season
to which she had access, and managed to
lake him to the theatre in their party 011
several occasions, and at church on Sunday
our friend was to be found occupying a
place iij her pew us regularly as "one of tlie
family." And more than this?she even
opened an account at his store, and two or
three times daily, in fine weather, Miss H.
was dispatched to huy mie indispensable
nothing, that nobody could select but herself!
Ifer plans worked admirably, for about
three months. Tom's attentions had been
generally remarked and the gossips of his
acquaintance had long settled it among
themselves that he was "in lor it," and the
good mother daily expected and was constantly
on the qui vine for a pronosal.?
This was the posture of affairs, when
Tom called ono morning aheut 11. lie
was shown into the parlor, and soon
joined by the young lady. After a few
moments' of small talk, ho reouested her
to bo so good an to send lie:* mother to j
him, as ho wished to have a few minutes'
conversation with her on business. We
acknowledge that there w;is a slight trembling
of the hands visible as M -s. I. smoothed
her hair to obey tho summons. "She
had been successful! notwithstanding the
sarcasms of the widow M., and tho inuendoes
of the Misses T., and the opposition
of the wholo street she had triumphed !"
These, and other thoughts of like pleasing
complexion caused her cheeks to assume an
unusual glow ond there was considerable
omuon id ner step as sue entered tne room
and affectionately greeted her future sonin-law.
Wc have intimated that Tom is honest
and Straightforward, and so Without the
least ciroum locution or embarrassment he
at orice approached the delicate matter.

A few weeks since, i'l e.uning down t'ne
North River 1 was geatel in tlio cabin of the :

vcrsation \vi;h some friends. It was liccom- i

ei\ reeking repose from llie cares ami (oils of |
tlic day made preparation to retire to their !
berths. Some pulling oil* their boots and '
coats lay themseUes down to rest; others in j
the attempt t ? make it seem as much as pos- ;
sil<!e like home, threw otl'more of their cloth j
ing?each one as his comfort or apprehension j
of danger dictated.
I had noticed on fleck a f.ne-looking little j
b"V oi'about six years old fdlowitij* around a !
man evidently his father, whose appearance
indicated Iiiin to l o a foreigner probably a
Herman?a man of medium height, and res- i

with an intelligent and afl'ectionnte, cx?>res- \

After walking aliout the eal>;n for a time

a handkerchief around his head to protect his j

The Baltimore If'/tuf)/imn gives tho following
as a few of the exploits of a hoy on- .
ly fifteen years of age, the son of a very ;
vespectablo citizen of that city :
" Not long ago, a young Newfoundland j
dog, the favorite of his father, was securely
tied by this young negro, who saturated
the body with eaniphene orcthcrial oil, and
set lire to the inflammable tluid, which had
tiie eUect ot roasting poor Towser until liio
became extinct, after the endurance of the
most intense, agonizing suffering which the
human mine can conceive.
" The young demon being well pleased
at the result of this grand experiment in
cruelty, next endeavored 'dso to roast alive
his little sister, a bright, intelligent child,
abont six years of age. Having playfully
bound her legs and anus with a clothes line
he placed her upon the cooking, stove in
the kitchen, heated to an intense degree,
in order to prepare dinner for the family.
Tito shrieks and yells of the agonized little
victim were fortunately heard by the mother,
who rushed down and removed the poor
child before she was fatally injured. Tolnf
? ?iv/>i vi i itv j uiu^ l iiiiiiii rj L I I I un I ( it 11 '
now censed to be a virtue, and tlio father
was engaged in preparations to effect his
removal to the House of Refuge, when the
hopeful youth suddenly disappeared at
night from his dwelling, and no tidings
have been heard of him since."
Tuk Passion 1'i.owkr.?The following
interpretation ot' this justly celebrated and
much admired l'o?vcrwill not be uninteresting,
especially to tho fair devotees of Flora.
The leaves resemble the spear that pierced
our ttavmr's sitloj tlio tendrils?the coals
that bound liis hands, or the whips that
scourged him ; the petals?the apostles,
J udas having betrayed, and Peter deserted;
the pillars in the centre?the cross or tree;
stamina?the hammer; the styles?the
nails; the inner circle around the centre
pillar?the crown of thorns; the radiance,
the glory; the white in the flower the emblem
of purity ; and the blue?the type of
heaven. On otic species the passiflora ultra,
even drops of blood are seen upon the
cross or tree. This flower continues three

that the old residents of Ward One were
not a little surprised, on Thursdny last, by
the advent in their midst of Mr. I'eter
Fudge after an abseueo of forty-six years.

twice after his departure, and some years

years have rolled over tho head of the returned
wanderer; and now, ns the eve
dims nnd the heart gets old and slow, the
lithe limbs stiffen nnd the sun-burnt locks

between (Jrcat Uritain and tho Uuited
States on tho subject of the right of search,
and concludes that both nations are in the
