young men in the town. Your uncle
Jacob was then just what he is no1
kind, generous, loving, forbearing and
faithful to a fault. For the first six
months of our married life I did not allow
my bad temper to show . itself much ; but
at length my honeymoon waned, and my
old feelings began to manifest themselves.
I became, in short, just what I was before

and petulant because I had no will to be
otherwise. S metimes I had bad feelings,
and I had no will to ot. rcome them. The
slightest thing that crossed me found me
ao entirely devoid cf will that it swayed
me at -its pleasure. At the end of two
years there was more of misery than of
happiness in my home, ana l couia not
hide from myself the fact that I was the
cause of it all : and yet I tried to convince
myself that I was not to blame. When
my mother talked with me I declared that
I ooold not help it; and when my hus
band ventured to allude to the subject, I
flew into a passion, I could hot bear a
chiding from him. In fact, his very kind---nees
and goodness sometimes fretted me ;
and when he offered to point out to me my
errors, it seemea as tnougn ne were preach

One royal birthday the townspeople
raised money for- ca4ebrtis f the oc

salute was to be fired in the morning, at
noon, and at sundown, of which my- hus
band was to have charge.
"During the day I received an invita
tion to join some friends in a sail upon the
river; and as I could not very well go to
the landing alone, I asked Jacob to go
with me. He said it would Interfere witS
other duties and he could not go. I asked
him if he thought the firing of the salute
wss of more importance than the making
of happiness for his wifemd when he had
foiled me at that argument, I asked him
why he eoold not let some one else take
charge of the . cannon. He answered me
calmiy and candidly that he dared not
traat the gun in other hands. : He was the
only one who understood how to properly
handle It, and he felt obliged to attend to
it. He told me how many accidents had
happened through mistakes of inexperi

not feel right to neglect the duty he had

It will be remembered by a few ot our
citizens at least, that during the eclipse la
1809 the United Slates Government sent
an engineer from the department ' at
Washington to this citv, to get the lati
tude and longitude of this place and es
tablish a meridian for the purpose of
taking observations of the eclipse. The
engineer proceeded here as directed and
encamped in the rear of the new State
House, and was occupied nearly two
weeks in finding the desired points,
which, after obtaining, he marked with
large stones, with copper bolts therein, for
a center. .Nothing bad been thought
of them until recently, and daring
the building of the State House, the stores
were buried by rubbish, etc While the
grounds were being graded, a couple of
weeks since. Messrs. Knos and Clark, with
proper instruments, commenced search tor
them. One .stone giving the longituae
andJatitude and situated on the meridian
line, was found by them forty feet west of
the center or tne west siae oi tne owe
House. The other stone, which -has not
been found, is thought to be about twenty
feet south of Monroe street, on the same
meridian line, and it Is necessary that it
should be found, as it is impossible to es
tablish the meridian line without it nnless
another observation is taken. Search for
the missing stone will be commenced.
and it has been suggested that the State
should preserve what the Government es
tablished at its own expense, which could
not have been less than $2,000. Spring

Geoge Bell, oT Portland, Oregon, now
visiting friends in this city, possesses the
remarkable peculiarity of being ablo to
deliver a shock as perceptible and distinct
as that from a galvanic battery. On the
evening of the Fourth he attended the
ball given by the Master Mariners' Asso
ciation at 3'nai B'rilh Hall, and there
created considerable amusement for thosd
who knew, the secret of his powers by the
war in which he treated the ladies whom
be was introduced and with whom he min
gled in the dance. A Chronicle reporter
called upon him at the residence of his
brother-in-law. W. F. Peck, on Mission
street last evening, to request an explan v
tiori of the phenomenon. . .
"You can call it a phenomenon or any
thing else," said Mr. Bell, "but 1 can glye

in general our flocks are very healthy.
Indeed, the late Hon.H. 8. Randall, one of

expressed an opinion some years sgo that

of well-fed and really-managed grown

hurriedly jumping to the pavement, ran
up the steps and disappeared in the build

in charge of the carriage, drove the horse
around to the drinking fountain on Mar

ment later the General emerged, from .the
doors facing Pennsylvania street, with a
frown on his face and his mail in both
hands. Without stopping to look, he
sprang into what he supposed to be his
carriage, and, throwing a letter down into
the iap of the lady at his side, exclaimed,
as he fumbled about for the lines: "Here,
wife, is another ot those blankety-blankea
lottery circulars." A faint scream in his
ear and a cry from the fountain ot "Oh,

of the case, and as our informant moved
on, the General was extricating himself
