MY DIAMOND RING.
WLen my uncle AUton, wLo was
an old b-ciit'lor, .it(i, i.e icit lis
property pretty cqusliy tiividej l,o-
twttn tiis live iit pliev.a and hiecca.
My btqucfit, Lontvcr, ba liting the
eldest aud Lis goiVjn, was the most
coiiBidL'rhb.'e; it consisted of a small
freehold i state ia Kent, and a uia-
1 Uis iin, viU:cU was ot men value
that it bad been estimated for legacy
duty at fire hundred pounds, had a
little history attached to it. It was
piestiiiod to tuy uncle by an Indian
rrj ih adiose physician he hud been
for ua iy yearn, fur having, on one
occasion, brought the rajih's favorite
son.sueccBxfully through a prere at
tack of the soiall-pcx.
Oallie return of the latter to Eng
land, some years alter wards, he dis
continued wearing the ring, for the
size and biilliancv of the stone were
so remarkable as invaiiably to attract
attention ; which, being a quiet, re
served man, was distasteful to him.
Liisidcs which, he very soon discov
ered that having on his person, ha
bitually, an article f eucli value,
was, in Ihis countrv, not futige tl.tr
unattended null tiarger, tu aitciupt
having been made oa one occasion
to walay acd rob him during one ot
the solitary ivt ning walks he was iu
the h libit ot taking.
He tlitrofoie decided to run 110
more liaks ol this chai&cter, and tor
safe keti.ii. ir i lactd the ling iu the
box containing his securUies deposit
ed with his banker, where it remained
for several ) eai s prior to hi decease.
With the c xeeplion, in tact, of my
self tiiid the elder of my two sisters,
not one of the family now living had
ever seen the ring, ami cvea our tic
ollection cl it had become V: gue and
indistinct during the 3 cars which had
elapsed biuce the time when, as chil
dren, we Lad &zrj with mingled
swo and aihuiihiii 11 upoa ''uncle's

some tlegite of tuiiooity lint I ex
amined my j.retioua tequtst. It was

could sell it; and I admit that the

my mind more lhan once. Five hun
dred pounds, I argued, ut five per
cent. a rate ot' iuurest obtainable
from many of the safest iavestmeuU,
gives tweuty-five pounds per annum ;
small sum, it is (rue, but not alio
gethe: to be despised ; while to long
the money is locked np iu the ring
is absolutely unproductive. Wi.y,
thought, pursuing the Eutject, had
my uncle sold the stone when he hrst
returned to England, sixteen years
ago, tue sum Ue would nave ualized
from it would, at compound interest,
have more than doubled itself by this
Wilh lL:s ides, vet uppermost in
mind, I casually alluded, on one oc
casion, in lamuy conclave, to my in
tention of parting wilh the ring ; but
only to find that, by proposing to do
so, I had raiseel a hornet's nest about
my ear. Indignant protests met me
all bides My sister Mary, iu-
deed, grew quite angry, esyitig, that
"If poor, dear uncle had only ki.own
how little I, his favorite nephew,
(wilh a s&rcsstic emphasis on the
word favorite,) would have valued his
lagacy, he would have left it to some
member of the family who could have
better appreciated his kindness."

felt that I was beaten.
I rlsce I the ling in a strong, iron-

have no more trouble about it ; but I
was mistaken. In less than a week

therefore, a mere arbitrary division of
time, not corresponding with tbe mOr
tions ot the seasons, nor with the mo-
tions of the sun and earth. Numa
Pompilius, 713 years B. C, added
two months to the year, which was an
proacd to correctness. J ulius
Ciesar, 45 years B C, made the year
con.-i?t ot 365 days and G hours, and
ordained that every fourth year should
leap year. This arrangement,
which made the year a little too long. I
histe 1 until the lime of Pope Gregory
All., when the dirlerence between the
technical year and tbe solar or actual
year, amounted to 10 days. To cor-
rect this error, Gregory, A. D., 1582,
ordered that that the ten days be-
tween March 11th and 21st should be
omitted, so that in that vear, March
2Ut was tbe next day after March the
11th. To prevent lurther irregulari
ty. it was provided that the first year
a century should be made a leap
year, with the exception of the first
year of every fourth century. Thus
the years 1700 and 1800 were not
leap years, nor will the year 1900 be
such, but the year 2000 will be.

JEFFERSON'S EARLY HOME.
BY JAMES PARTON.
All the important circumstances
hia home comes to mind as we
brood over acattere I indications in
old and new Virginia books. We
see that giant ot a father, steadfast,
reserved, even austere, but not un
gentle, bnsy with official labors and
details of farm and barn during
the day. and in the tvening giving
his boy (his only son for many years)
lessons in book keeping and arilli
metic: two elder sisters, perhaps,
taking their turn at slate and pencil,
sitting with their mother, pljing
the needle; the lather, not unrre
quenlly, treating the group to a fa-
vorite paper trom the Si'SCTatob.
The morning scene, too, with the
mother and her servants, we can ia
fer with much probability from ties
cription of simular interiors preserv-
from that periods.
Deeply as Jefferson came to bate
slavery, clearly as he foretold the
rum enclosed in tne system, ne saw
only in its better aspects at his own
home. He saw bis father patently
drilling negroes, not long from their
native Africa, into carpenters, mill-
ere, wheelrights, shoemakers, and
farmers. He saw bis mother of a

for facilitating labor, seated with her

For a century, it is said, there were
but five tunes sung in the colonial
churches. By the fireside in the
winter eyei ng, and on the banks ot
the nver in the soft, summer twilight,
there were family singings, Jane Jef

choir; to which was added, aa the
years went on, tha accompaniment of
her brother's violin.

father, however, objected to., this
match with one of his clerks,' and
when the young lady received a
tempting proposal from a wealthy
anitor, the paternal influence soon
effected a marriage, despite the for
mer engagement. In less than three
months her husband was killed by a
kick from a horse. Tiobert was a
second time taca a suitor, but de
layed the important question, until
fifteen months bad elapsed, when to
his horror, she informed him that she
was engaged. In three ' months
thereafter she was married. -Two

husband's business was lound in such
a state that, to avoid immense losses,
she married the surviving partner.
Shortly after, she removed with her
third husband to Detroit, Michigan
c few years elapsed, when herself and

wrecked near Buffalo. The husband
perished, and the wife escaped solely
through the exertions' ot a friend

A DREADFUL FATE.
A terrible tale ot the fate of a Ger
man doctor, named Gunkell, a prac
tising physician in Lansing, Ia , comes
to us in the papers of that State
Finding he was sick, probably from,
smallpox, and away from home and
friends, be engaged a man to drive
him from McGregor to Elkader, where
he formerly bved. They had not pro
ceeded far before the doctor seemed
to think he waa being pursued. Seiz
ing tbe loose halters lying in tbe bug;
gy box, be lashed the dash board,
urging the driver to 'Iet the horses
go 'or God's sake; they are after
me-' Upening a large pocket knue.
he coolly informed the driver that his
life depended on fast driving and
silence. Tbe pool driver was forced
to the terrible conviction that he was
alone with a maniac at dead of night.
Obedience to the desperate man's
commands was the only alternative,
and with eyes straight ahead, he
drove for dear life to Harding's hotel
Bull's Head, six miles from Mo
Gregor. The driver here jumped
out, and asked the doctor to come in
and bave something to drink. En
raged at tha delay, the madman
threw out the robe, cushions, etc.,
and then got ort himself and tried to
awaken the .landlord. The driver;
intent on sav ing his life, hastily se
cured Lis robe and cushions, and put
ting whip to his horses, returned to
Mcuregor. Ihe doctor Jailed to
arouse the landlord, and starting out
alone, evidently tried to foot it to
Llkader. He was next seen at si a-
tional, ten miles from Elkader, crazy
and wild, but there were none hu
mane enough to relieve or bave him
cared for. Alone by the aide ot the
road he was seen the next day, some
nine miles lrom Elkader, by some of
its citizens, nearly all acquainted with
him. No one spoke to him or offered
to help biro, bnt all agree that he was
crazv. and that his face was very red. !
His friends were notified ot his cpndi
tion, but no effort was made to relieve
him- He was reported near Windsor
on Wednesday, farther west on Thurs
day, and r rid ay was found in a sink
hole, nearly naked, badly frozen, and
the snow red from the blood trom bis
lace that ha bad scratched and torn
his delirium. He was conveyed to
stable in Wagner township, Friday
evening. Saturday a physician from
Elkader was procured, who found
him dying from his exposure aud
smallpox. Daring the night he ex
pired, with none near bim, alone ia
the stable, away lrom mother, broth
ers, sisters and friends.
A LAWYER-LIKE ANSWER.
A prominent lawyer was hailed
hile passing a jewelery store, by
the proprietor, with: "General, come
in here a moment, we bave something

bis watch to be fixed, audit cost me
ten cents to do i and I keep it a
week, f ni charge him six dollars,
what per cent, do I make? We
have been figuring and make it 900
per i ent, and bave only got up to
one dollar. How much do you say it
would be at six dollars? 'replied tbe
general, "I do not wonder at your
perplexity, for it is well known, and
tie celebrated Babbage calculating
machine has demonstrated.thatat cer
tain points in progressive numbers
the law governing them changes. In
this case the law wonld change, and
long before it would reach the six
dollars it would run out of per cent,

lady, tha daughter ot tha owner oi
the house, was addressed by a man
who, though agreeable to her, was
disliked by her lather. Of course, he.,
would not consent to their union, and
she determined to elope. The night
was taxed, tbo hour came, he placed
tha ladder to the window, and in a
few minutes she was in his arms.
They mounted a double horse, and
were soon at some distance from the

silence by saying, ''Well, yon see
what a proof 1 have given yoa ot my
affection ; I hope yon will make me a
good husband.' He was a surly fel

may, and perhaps not.' She made no
reply, but after a silence of some
minutes she suddenly exclaimed, 'Oh,
what shall we do? 1 have left
my money behind me in my rocm.
Then,' said he, 'we must go back
and fetch it.' They were soon again
at the house, the ladder was a?ain
placed, the lady remounted, while the
ill-natured lover waited below. But
she delayed to come, and so he gent
