MAUGIK'S A?TRNTIJEE WITtf
Maggie Clarke was a beautiful girl;
symmetrically proportioaed, with flaxen
hair failing down to her waist, full round
face, blushing cheeks, pore, bri ght blue
eyes, with two pooling, cherry lips, ths*
made one foel like pressing her to his
heart, and covering these with kisses.
She was now eighteen years old. Her
lather had settled on one of those rich |
bottoms of the Ohio, at the lower end of
whst is sometimes called "Seven Mile
Island.' At the time of which we write
there resided a family of McAfees, on
what is now called Montours, run, be
tween whom and the Clarke's the most
intimste friendship existed.
"Maggie," said Mr. Clarke, "I want
you to go over to Mr. McAfees and bor
row his rifle. The look of mino is bra
ten, and ss we want te kill our hogs to
morrow, I cannot hear the old fashioned
barbarous way of knocking them in the
head with an axe."
It was then three o'clock in tho after
noon ot a beaatifal November dev. The
trees were nil stripped of their leaves,
exoept here snd there a red oak that
still held en to its faded foilaga.
'Yon will have to hurry, Maggie,'
said Mr. Clarke, 'or it will be night on
yon before you get hack.'
'2 will make all the hasto possible,
she replied, 'but I an not afraid to bo
in the wood* sftsr light, especially with
such n braut iful moon over head.'
Taking the ?teop, hilly path, she ar
rived at neighbor McAfees just as the
last rsys of the suo were disappearing io
i he west.
Supper would be ready in half an hoar
Nothin?: would do hut that s*J* nrust
stay and take tea with them. By the
time it was over, it was dark. But the
full orbed moon, without sn interesting
cloud, was illuusining the eastern heri
xou aud in half an honr mere would bs
p urin;; bor beaut.ful light ever hill snd
There was a young Jenkins joat from
Fort Titt?as l'tttsburg was then sailed
?for supper, dressed in the latest style I
ot frontier, fashion, and having all the ?
equipments of a forester.
A A er Ms* gin had placed tho pouch
and hero on her person in regular hun
ter st)le, and taking the gun in her hand
was preparing to leave, M*. Jon kins pro
posed te accosnpsny her. She thanked
him for his kind offer; hot declined it.
He insisted. What could she do hot
Tbey had resehed tho ridge along
which the path wousd its Wwf toward
her home. The fascinating Mr. Jen
kins, excited hy the romance of youth
impressed with the beautiful moonlight
scene, and inspired hy tho presence of a
beautiful girl, had uttered a grant many 1
soft nothings. He was wed dressed,
good looking and Maggie was pleased
with his talk. Before they had reached
the top of tho hit, ho had almost takaa
the place in her heart of Wallace Stew
ard her acknowledged lover, 40 honied
had been his words.
No soouer had they reached the irreg
ular path leading along tho ridge to
Maggie's horns when they hoard tat?
how] of ?volvss in the distance.
'What is that Miss Clarke!' inquired
Jenkins, with e slight tremor of voiee.
"I think," she answered, "i? is the
howl of wolves. From the sound, I judge
they sre in considerable number, nod i
they seem to be coming this way."
"Had we not better retain until they
have passed?" he asked.
"No," she repbed, "you can return if1
you wish, but I sm going home.
Another vicious bowl from tho blood ^
thirsty animals' snd this time they seem
ed to be qeaito near at hand.
'Here,' Miss Clarke, Met ine asi'styoo
to olimb this beech. But before he had
time to complete the seutcooe, he saw in
in the distance by the clear light of the
full moon, now above the hills, a peek I
of ten or twelve waives coming at fall
speed along the ridge. Without fur
ther ceremony, he swung hiutsell into
the branches of the tree (saving Maggie
j to take csre of herself.
Thus deserted, she hastened along the
path lesding to her home ,uotel aha was
thoroughly exhausted and Compelled to
stop for breafV
She wss provoked^ angry, at the eow
ardlj spirit oi her eraven gallant.
? She selected a position,?resolving to
sell her life dearly as< possibly,?at the
root of a half fallen tree.
She dafefully examined the priming
?f her fr,un. While doing .this, htr
attention was arrestsd bj tho ooncerced
ery of tho whola pack of wolros,
Looking aver the course she had coiue
now illumined by the soft light of the
fall moon, she saw the whole gang af
waives halted at the old becoh in which
Mr Jenkins had taken refuge. They
-?ere scenting sround its base; some of
them wi.h forpaws, on the body of the
tree, nnd noses uplifted, were snuffing
ths air. She knew that governed by
instinct, they would not long remain
there, and that io a little while, the
whola, pack would be upon her. Nor
hsd aha to wait long. With fearful
howls they came bounding dow n tho ridgo.
The bright moon making it almost aslight
as daj, enabled her to see that bar pur
suers were in no inconsiderable number.
As tbay sdvanced and oame within
shooting distance, taking the bast aim
she eonld she fired into the pack. The
gua having been loaded with buck shot,
three of them were woundod and went
howling . round with pain, while the
whole gang, by the report, was brought
te a sudden bait.
While in the not of re-loading, she
was startled by the report of a rifle near

'Don't bo alarmed,* Maggie, he said,

At the .-?cond discharge two of the

Kr op M?nte.
In Brooklyn all demat people who
prefer Co have thor religion served up
with Cayenne pepper mixed with rose
leaves go to the Tnberuaote, of which
the Rev. Jfewitt Talraajjo is pastor.
Some time since tho ark of tho oovon
ant was destroyed by fire, and at present
there is in progross et tbe Brooklyn
Academy of Mnsie a ladies' fair pro
coeds of which it is understood, are to
he devoted toward the building of
another snd more gorgeous tabernacle
than before. By his admirers Mr. Tal
s?nge is believed to bo far superior as a
preacher to his protnype, Sporgeon,
who holds forth in the borough o!
Sonthwnrk, on tbe east side of the
Thames. Parson Tal mage is a sort of
more antique Presbyterian, aud his eon- !
gregatioa, an immense one numbers
OVOr twelve thousand persons. Ilalfo!
the pretty girls who were wont to-attend
Plymouth Charch have dosertod it, nnd
are now steady communicants at tho
shrine of the fiery snd poetical Parson
Tnlmage, who holds tbe same rank in
tho chnrch that Wnlt Whitman holds
among the Biases. Some idea rany then
bo formed of the excitesrent that was
caused in the breasts of 3,000 fair ladies
of TaJmage'a church, who are in nightly
attendance at the fair at the Brooklyn
Aoademy, when it wss announced that
n wedding would take plane Jant even
ing on the stage of thai histrionic build
ing. aud that Rev. Mr. Tulmsge would
officiate aad join two loving hearts in
tho holy bonds af wedlock. The mar
riage some people might suspoct to ho
aa advertising dodge to draw n crowd
to the fair at an extra admission, but all
doubts as to its probability. a* woll as
its intflcntiei'y, were ret at res' by the
appearance of the following ; ticket,
which waa sold at tho door of tho Acade
my to tho thousand* who sought adtnis

Weddynge and ye Fair.
At half past seven o'clock last even
ing the crowds of well dressed and
enthusiastic persons who had assembled
in the vicinity of tho Academy doors
waa really extraordinary. There was
a crush of satin; r.r-.J velvets, a marvel
ous combination of perfumes and torrent
of small talk.
"What will she weir, I wondw ?"
asked one young lady who evidently
believed that marrying nud giving iu
marriage was the chief business in life.
"What kind of a fellow is the bride
groom ; is ho soiid V remarked an ex
cited dry goods olerk.
"I luppose Mr. Talmage will give
them his blessing, aud send them home
iu a truck at the expenseof tho church,"
suggested an individual whose irrever
ence was only excelled by the Ldootuiug
glare ol red scarf.
And here let it be understood that tin
advertisement had been insertee for
s tue days, in whi^h i? wts >UrseNs>*Hat
auy respectable couple who wished to bo
married free of cost and iu costume of a
hundred years ago, on the ttuge of the
Brooklyn Aeadeiuy of Music, would be
provided with the necessary costumea
and nullit temporarily, by the tnanagers
of tho Tabernacle, free. To this adver
tise acnt there were fifty-two answers,
and it was necessary, natwithstauding
the desiro for notoriety alwaywto be j
found among a free and enlightened 1
Am ei ie.in public, to select one couple.

Orleans, were loaned hy a masked ball
co*tumcr, who was decidedly anxious to
hava his name in the fferakf, but who
must, for obvious reasons, remain for
ever iu obscurity. For one hour, the
happy couple were to be gilded with
the ofTulgcncc of borrowed plumes, aud
then they were to rel.ipae into their nor
mal and buowlk: Connecticut apparel.
The doors of the Academy, which has
a very handsome interior, swung open
and displa}ed the stage, decorated aa it

that were to f'<rllow. The crowds of
well-dress d men and woms t au J boys

scats. A burst ef ntusio, wild and
triumphant, broke from the brazen
instruments in the orchestra, and i doa I
tdlence followed for a moment, only to
be sueeecdoJ by the half whispered
gossip, so dear to all feminine hearts
Thon solemnly up t\xn tniin aisle

procession ol about thirty persms clad
in the costume of n hundred years gone

rounded by largo horn combs, such as
our great-grand mothers wore, and the
entire party wore a look of blissful and
eager expectation. Tho name of the
ladies and gentlemen attendant on the

Mrs. ('lark was most distinguished for

for gallant and knightly bearing although
his armor did not fit him well. Ah tho
happy party reached the base of the
stage, at the end of |hc p?rsage, tho
orchestra struck up Mendelssohn's mag

bridegroom snd bride followed by all
their attendants, mounted the Stage aud

who necessarily had hia back to the

The Farmers? Movement Against
Having for some years foreseen that
the next phase of popular und political
agitation would turn upon administra
tiv? and economic questions, we are net
unprepared to consider these intricate
subjects, nor does the Republican party
shrink from the assumption of the re
sponsibility to aid in their solution.
The agitation of the question of cheap
railway tolls, which has been carried on
in Illinois and the adjoining States, cul
minated in the holding of a regular
States convention at Springfield, 111. iu
which the fanners W;-rc represented by
upwards of three hundred regularly
chosen and accredited delegates; aud
thus the movement has assumed a tuag.
nitudu that chnllonges the attention of
the entire country,
We regret to observe tint it is a class
movement; for we would'have greatly
preferred if our citizens generally with
out distinction of occupation or political
profession, who are injuriou-ly a?fectsd
by the ex taovt ionate demands on tho put
of railwnys for toll and fare had united
to devise proper remedies.
There is always danger that a class
movuuii iu ?in uu set f-ioterastcd, partial
and prejudiced and (hat it will urouse
the jealousy of other interests. The
farmers are, moreover, likely to be temp
ted by political demagogues toincorpor
ate in their platform resolution? of a
purely political nature, so that a few of
**?.? ?>?'-y ? ? ?.-'i?l?..l into n.?.w reirtc
relations. Should they yield to these
insidious, suggestions the railroads will
not be slow to take advantage of this
mi t ike to divert the current of public
opinion by tho suli.-titu'iou of questions,
that nre but remotely oonnccted with the
mint of issue. Tims far the farmers |
!ii\c pursued a judicious course; and the j
resolutions joisting to the increase of
salaries aa l the tartfl* which were adop

A Considerate Pickpocket
We have received the following cor?

Sir: Please advise your renders al
ways to Icavo their names nnd addresses
in their pocket-books. It frequently
happens in our business that we come iu
possessio i of portemonuaies containing
privato papers and photographs which
we would be glad to #turn, but we have
no means of doing so. It is dangerous
to carry them about, so we are forced ta
destry them. I remember an iustanco
where I met with serious trouble because
I could not make up my mind to destroy
a picture of a baby which I had found
in the pocket-book of a gentleman
which camo into my hands in the way
of business on the Third nvcnuo road.
I had lost a baby myself, the year be
f ire, of the fsmc age as this oni, and I
would have given all I had for such a
picture. There was no name in the
portcmonnaie, and no way ef finding
out who was the owner, so like a fool I
advertised it and got shadowed for it by
the police. Tell your readers to giro
us a lair -how to be decent?and alwaya
leave their addresses iu their pocket*
books. We want to livo and let lire.

eisen photographer has succeeded in ob
taining a picture of a race horse going
at. itJ5 highest speed. A local paper
states that tho artist procured all tho
shouts to be had in the stablo, and with
these made a reflecting back ground,
Over this (jrrident was trained to trot,
ami everything was then in readiness
lor the trial. Tho great difficulty was
to transfix an im press tob wtaiiotne norao

feet to the second. The first experiment,
of opening and closing tho camera on
the first day left no result; the second
lay, with iucreased velocity jn opening
and closing, a shadow was caqght. On
thu third day, the artist I; ay tug studied
tiie matter thoroughly, contrived to
have two boards slip past each other by
touching a spring, aud in so doing to
leave au eighth of nu inch opening for
the five hundredth part of a second, as
the horse passed, and by an arrangement)
of djublc leusss, crossed secured a Q?g*?
