Procrastination.—"I Lost a Wife by it."
New Tear's Day I returned home trom a South'
en tnnr. and waa elttioE la BT room In the ere
dIbk, writiug to some of my friends, when a fe
male couslu of mine came in and laid a email
handle on my table. It waa a suce oi weaaiog
cake, done up rary neauy n "ug paper
"Ah," said I, "what bare we here?"
".WMln rake." aald 001- ' '
, "Weddirg cake," aaldli "ageneroue slice,
truly! ' Who of my frienda hare been ao foolish
as to commit matrimony T And when did this
meianoboly affair happen f
"Christmas Eve," returned coz . "The card
that eame with the cake will answer your first
question;" and, giving me an area emiieee tae
pointed to the oard, aha left the room.
Indeed, mv old chum laerrledl ' said I to
myself, as I took up the oard and read "Mr.
audlMre. George Adams." "Qa, ha, ha! who'd
bare thought George would bare committed
such an act! 1 Afr. (? Jtfrs. OtargeAdamil
Ha, ha! really I abould like to see the fellow,
lust to bore him a bit. - Bat who is this lady?
It can't be Mlae -,or Mies ; they were no
favorites of his. " Let me think," continued I,
taking out my peooil and pulling on a bit of
paper the names pt our lemaie acquaintances.
I went on with: "There's Ellen Rice can't
be bar; Jane Greennor her; Mary Willis
nor her;" until I had written down the names
of about twenty girls, without satisfying myself
as to tbe right one. "ao, men, Aaame is realty
married !" said I to myself, I felt truly rejoiced
that it waa so, and I could not help thinking how
comfortable it would be to drop in of an even
log with "my lady," for I had serious notions
then of getting married as you shall hear
by-and-by -end haying social times. I
planned out how we would spend our evenings
tocather in nleaeant Intercourse ' I determined
that his lady and my lady should be the best of
friends, ana Mrs. Aaame as a sieier to me, ana
mv wife as a sister to him. In fact, such a pic
ture of domestic happiness did I draw up so
bright and glowing with all that is delightful
did the future seem In a married state that I
threw my paper one way, my pen another, jumped
up, and prepared for a visit to Maria Bailey, to
whom I meant to offer myself that very night, and
get married as soon ae the law and the minister
would let us. Having put on a clean dickey-
it waa a cold night, and 1 was In a hurry i eai
lied forth to vleit my Intended. - Maria lived at
tbe north end of the town, with her mother, a
widow lady. While on the way to tbe bouse,
I will make the reader a little acquainted with
Maria, and tbe relation In whlcb 1 etood to ber.
I will not oraise her beauty although as beaut!
f ul a creature as eye ever rested onneither will
1 speak of her amiable disposition, her accom
plishments, CO., AO. J
Maria and myself from childhood had known
each other, and were pretty Intimate In our
friendship. When I waa twenty-two years of
age. I concluded to take a trip through the
Statoa; and aa I bad been indieposed for some
time back, with a loss ot appetite, no eleep, ete ,
I made thla my excuse "traveled for my
health." When I made this declaration, there
waa nothing like traveling for bealtb--overy-oodv
recommended It. 8o I started, with the
intention rf being absent a year or more.
Traveling, I must say, agreed with me com
pletely, for at the first stopping place I made
ae hearty a meal aa any of my fellow passen
gers; and when I stopped lor the night , I slept
as sound as a toacn. 10 ten me iruw, i isign
ed sickness only for an excuse to get away from
borne. The real motive ot my departure was,
my feelings toward Maria began to change; 1
always had a foolish longing to be Bear her,
aad a singular feeling of regret when she was
away from bone woen 1 caned to spend a
social evening; and tben tbere was a peculiar
sensation about my heart wnen 1 saw ner
engaged closely In conversation with, any
of my companions, or when she bestowed
upon them a smile. " la loot I began to
lee! ' something more than friendship to
ward ber. I d,d not let her ,know tbe state of
my mind, but laughed and frolioked with her
the same as ever. My affection for her in
creased daily. Not knowiu j, however, but that
my lore might prove omy momentary, and
wiahing to know if absence would wesr it off
for it bad always been my determination that
when I wedded, II should not only be a union of
hands, but a union of hearts. I determined,
without hinting the object of my journey to
Maria, or even fiivlDB her tbw slightest reason
to suspect the nature of my feelings toward ber
to take the journey, and if time did not alter
my heart when I returned, to offer myself to
ber. i I went on my journey visited all noted
places mingled In company as much as possi
bletrifled with the lrdies In tbe fashionable
way; still, though surrounded with boauty in
every engaging lorm though flattered and ca
ressedafter all, a thought of Maria caused a
throb which cone of the lovely ones around me
could create. Her Image kept fast bold on my
heart, and wouldn't leave it. Finding, after an
absence of six months, that the complaint which
caused me to leave borne Inreased rather than
diminished, I hastened my return, and arrived
borne on the aforesaid first of January.
When I reached Maria's place of abode and
began to ascend the steps in front of the house,
my bear! quailed a little. I began to grow
faint-hearted, and to think in wbicn, manner I
should "pop tbe question." I regretted.tbat I
had not studied my part before 1 left home. I
hesitated as I took, hold of the bell-rope my
breath grew shorter, and my nerve shook. I
was relinquishing my noia wan tne intention ot
Ukina a abort stroll round tut sauare to think
over what to say in faot, 1 got ball way down
tbe step. tbinkln Lwouid put off my declara
tion until another time when the thought of
George and his wife and tne pleasant even
Ings we should have together, fixed my waver
Ina heart. So, with reuewed determination, I
turned and ran op the steps, opened the door,
and proceeded to tne parlor. ,
As food luok would have It. there sat Maria
on the sofa, all alone, locking as bewitching aa
an aogel. one Diusned aa sne arose and jovially
extended her Band I gave It a hearty shake,
and squeezed It you know bow, reader, I dare
say. I was ftmost tempted to do violence by
kissing it, but thinking it would seem sweeter
after the trembling Yes had been said, I refrain
ed. A - .. . ' 1 ' I - - .... -. I '.
"Bow glad I am that you hare returned,"
aid she. "and how Improved you look!" ' 1
This was said is such a tone of affection that
I began to con over an anawer, whioh would
weaken tbe Ice, and .lve ber a bint of what was
"Yee." I railed. "I feel wonderfully im
proved; and It appear to me," I continued.
"there la also an Improvement In your appear
ance you .. , ; ,i i . i
"But how were yon pleased with your Jour
ney 1" Interrupting me, while a delicate flush
passed .over her cheeks i "did yon not meet with
some Boutnern oeauiy, wuo weaken your aearx

Here waa a fin ODeniae.
"No, Maria, home is home, and ever dear.
1 must aenfesrJ, bowever, mat a was greatly
pleased with the ladias of the South, yet, I saw
none who would compare with the girls o( my
own town. As for being weaned from home, my
heart Is too strongly bound to the scenes of my
birthplace, and to the friends of my childhood,
to fear that. These affections, my dear Maria,
that sling to (he heart, and will not forsake you,
be joe where yon may, or your situation what It
meyb ' 1
Her I stack for a moment'.'. Thinking (f I
neglected to strike now I should never gather
courage to speak again, I took hor willing hand,
and, as the. moments were preoious tor I felt
say courage ooslng away I commenced: " v
"I feel truly happy In findlBg you alone this
evening; I have something for your private ear.

. The door at tils moment opened, and my
friend Adams walked Into the room, I sprang
. l"nr-' '; V '"rr, i,";
up, and seising bis extended band, gave him a
cordial graep, although from my heart I wished
him anywhere else, at that moment, than whore
be was. Alter we were seated, we began to
talk on common topics. Bhortly after, I thank,
ed bim for remembering me in the distribution
ot me Dnaai cake. ,- ,
"Oh," said he, "that was wife's doings; you
must think her for that." y
. "Indeed, husband, I knew not of our friend's
return until you told me of it."
"Hueband! wife!". Gracious heavens! bad
a thunderbolt fell at my feet at the moment, I
should not have been more astonished than wben
I beard those words. I started from my seat
any brain reeled, and a sudden falntnees came
orer me. 1 should have fallen, bad I not been
eopported by Maria and George Mr. and Mrs

claimed both, ae I began to revive.
, "Nothing nothing at all,': I replied, "only

As I revived, I added, "with your leave, I will
They urged me strongly to stay wore fearful
that I might have a second atUok on the way
nome, elo out in rain, wnen 1 etood in the
entry, waiting to bid them good night. I trem
bled like an aspen, and it was with the greatest
difficulty 1 made out to utter, "Mrs. Adams
good evening." It nearly choked me.
When I cot home, and within my room, the
Aral thing I did was to threw Maria's wedding
cake Into the nre rroeting and all; and more
over, I drove a large ten penny nail through tbe
card into the bed-poet, and tben went to bed. I
was confined to my chamber seven days with a
fever, at the end of which time I got about
again. I am now quit reconciled to my late,
and can say "Mrs. Adams without bsrdly a

that gentleman's permission to take a vetbatim
aocount of the oration. The "Liberator" cot
only consented, but, In his oiliest manner, in
formed the assembled audience that "until that
gintleman was provided with all wrltln' conve
niences, he wouldn't spake a word," assuming
an extra brogue, whioh was altogether unneces
sary. Russell was delighted. The preparations
began, and were completed; Russell was ready,

"I'm certain, sir. Yes."

begin the speech till tbe London gintleman is
intirely ready." , . .
After waiting another moment or so. O'Con

Fox, thi Patbiot Gadi.i One of Fox's
duns was an Irish oabinet maker, with small
means and a large family. This man's name
waa Murphy, and he held Fox's note for what.
to an Industrious and not wealthy tradesman,
was a considerable Bum. , One day ha was ad
mitted, by some blunder of a new footman, into
Fox's presence. "You have come about that
money, I gnppoee? It is wholly out of my pow
er to pay now." ' '
. But Mr. Murnhv had read In tha mornlnT da-
per that;Fox had just bad a great run of luck
at tbe gaming-table In Brookes' Club. He
knew bis man, and carefully adapted hla reply.
"No, Mr. Fox, I do not expect my money, if
you have not got It. But, I have presented this
noto oi yours so ouen during tne last two years,
that, being only on naner. I am afraid It will
wear out. I just came round to ask you to renew
it, upon pitchmtnt, which will bear a good deal
of handling." Fox conld not help smiling,
and said, "There's your money, yon rascal
your wit has earned it."
