at; ami when they fail and po down,
there ar thousaml.s w ho wickedly rejoiev
in their fall. Jut in our days some men
nre institutions. They do not stand like
lYmipey'H I'illar or Cleopatra's Needle,
towering to tho flcy, dotntchod nnd alouoj
they are like mountains which carry for
ests far up their sides, and shelter and
nourish ten thousand living things in
their shadow. Sonic one says : ' Why
do you eare that their watcr-wheel is bro
ken ? A black, lumbering thing, half of
the time in the water and half of the time
out. Why do you not earj for the nicer
wheels and ppindles within the build-
I do eare, and therefore 1 am sorry for
the breaking of the great wheel. Its axis
passes within, and by drum and bands
its power is eommunic.ttcd to tho various
rooms, and every spindle is dependent
upon its revolutions. When an earth
quake comes, by as much as a houso is
elevated above the others, by so much is
its ruin greater than theirs the third
story crashing into the second, and the
second into the first. Now, men in exten
sive business arc mountains of shelter;
ponderous wheels that turn the mill;
lofty houses which cannot fall without
causing wide-spread disaster; and when
we hear of their failure, we must not
think of them alone, but also of the ten
thousand dependants who have allilated
with them. In a not irreverent sense it
may be said, they arc "set for tho fall
and rising of many in Israel."
A man living at a hotel is like a grape
vine in a llower-pot moveable, carried
around from place to place, docked at the
root and short at the top. Nowhere can a
man get ical root-room, and spread out his
branches till they toucli the morning and
the evening, but in his own house.
I am suspicious of that church whose
mcmber.4 arc ono in their beliefs and opin
ions. When a tree is dead, it will lie any
way; alive it will have its own growth.
When men's deadness is in the church,
and their life elsewhere, all will be alike.
They catr be cut and polished any way.
When they arc alive, they arc like a trop
ical forest some shooting up like the
mahogany tree, somo spreading, like the
vine; sonic darkling, like the shrub a
some lying, herblike, on the ground ; but
all obeying their own laws of growth-
common law of growth variously express
ed in each and so contributing to the
to the richness and beauty of tho wood.
It is a solemn thing to be married; to
have to preach to a congregation from
your own loins; to hare (Jod put tho

our own households. We thank ilim
that wc are not born a.i the pat ridge of
the wood, or the ostrich of tho desert, to

And he ogle? and touches his hat to the girls;

Would be moonlight's cold ray on a moss eov
And yet it most dearly delight him to flirt
With ancient Miss Prim, aud with niodcrn Miss

And discourse sublimely in rhymes to the moon.

("3 According to tho French mission
ary, the Uudhists have a remarkable mode
of facilitating devotional exercises. A
thick board is made, composed of innume
rable sheets of paper together, and upon
which are written in Thibctian characters
the most reputed prayers. This board is
placed in a barrel and turned on an axle.
Those devotees who have not the zeal or
taste to j) ray vocally, " have recourse: to
the simple and expeditious medium of the
prayer barrel," says the worthy Monsieur
Hue. "All they have to do is to set the
barrel in motion ; it then turns of itself:
for a long time, the devotees drinking,
eating or sleeping while the complacent
mechanism is turning prayers for them."
This praying by steam is certainly a novel

(Voiittniu (7 from fits! rrct.)
It was late in the afternoon, and twi-

"gui was gradually stealing over mo Ulllgy
court, when the case was called. The
special jury answered to their names, were
duly sworn, and then nearly the same pre
liminary speeches, and admissions were
made and put in as on the previous occas
ion. Thomas Headier, the first witness
I called in support of the pretended will,
underwent a vigorous cross examination;
but I was unable to extract anything impor
tant from him.
" And now," said the defendant's lead
ing counsel, " let me ask my learned
friend if he has sueovded in obtaining
the attendance of Klizabeth Wafl'ing''w'
1 was of course obliged to confess that
we had been unable to find her ; and the
judge remarked in that case he could re
ceive secondary evidences in proof
of her attestation of the will.
A whispered but manifestly eager con
ference here took place between the de-
fen dan t and his counsel, occasionally join
ed in by Edward Warciutr. There ap-
1 A . 1 ' 1 '"1 ... I
peareu to ue in uchmoii or Hesitation m

rose, and with some ostentation of manner
addressed the court as follows :
" In discharge of 1113' duty to the de
fendant in this action, my lord, upon
their fair fame much undscrved oblujuy
has been cast by the speeches of the
plaintiff's counsel speeches unsupported
by the shadows of evidence-1 have to state
that, anxious above ail things to vtand per
fectly justified before his neighbors and
society, he has, at great trouble and ex
sense, obtained the presence hero to-day
of the witness KlezabeJi Wnroing. She
she had gone to residein France with a re
spectable English family in the situation
of housekeeper. We shall now place her
in the witness-box, and having done so, I
trust we shall hear no more of the slander
ous imputations so freely lavished upon
my client. Call Elizabeth Waiving into
A movement of surprise and curiosity
agitated the entire auditory at this an
noueemcnt. Air. Silas Thorndyke's nat
urally cadaverous countonunco assumed
nnits,hy hue, in ?pitc of his efforts to appear
easy and jubilant; and for the first time
since the commencement of the proceed
ings I entertained tho hope of a success
Mrs. Wareing appeared in answer to
tin call, and was duly sworn to " tell the
truth, the wholo truth, and nothing but
tie truth." She was a good-looking wo
man, of perhaps forty years of age, and
bore a striking resemblance to her son.
She rapid'y, smoothly, and unhesitatingly
confirmed the evidence of Headley to a
title. She trembled, I observed, exces
sively ; and on the examining counsel in
timating that he had no nioro pu:s
tious to asked, turned hastily to leave the
" Stay stay, my good woman," I said
you nnd I must have some talk together
before we part."
She started and looked at me with
frightful earnestness; and then her nerv
ous glances stole toward 31 r. Silas Thorn
dyke. There was no comfort there ; in
his countenance she only saw the reflex
of his agitation and anxiety which mark
ed her own. Sleek Silas, 1 could see, repent
ed of the rash move lie had made and
would have given a great deal to get his
witness safely and quickly out of the
It was now nearly dark, and observing
that it was necessary that the court and
jury, should see as well as hear the witness
whilst under examination. I requested
that light should be brought in. This
was done. Two candles were placed in
front of the witness box, one on each side
of Mrs. Wareing : a few others were dis
posed about the bench and jury desks.
J'he effect of this partial lighting of the
of the gloomy old court was that the wit
ness stood out in strong and bright relief
from the surronding shadows rendering
the minutest change or plav of her features
distinctly visible. Mr. Silas Thorndyke
was fruin his position, thrown entirely
into the fchade, and any telegraphing be
tween him and the witness was thus ren
dering impossible. This preparation ns if
for some extraordinary and solemn pur
posrs, together with profound silence
which reigned in the court, told fearfully,
a I expected on the nerves of Elizabeth
Wareing. She already seemed as if about
to swoon with agitation and ill-defined
" Fray, madam," said T, " is your name
arcing or Tucker?"
She did not answer, and I repeated the
"Tucker," she at last replied in a
" l thought so. And pray, Mrs. Tuck
:r were you ever in trouble in hondun,
for robbing your lodiriics ?"
I thought she attempted to answer, but
no sound passed her lips. One of the
ushers of the court handed her a glass of
water at my suggestion, ami she seemed
to recover .somewhat. I pressed my qucs-
tion, and at last she replied in the same

events the prosecution was not present.
Is that not so ?"
" Yes no yes."
Very well ; either inswer will do. You
lived also, 1 believe, with Mr. Thorndyke
as his housekeeper, of course, when he
was in business as a concoeter and vender
of infallible drills and pills?"
"He was held to be skillful in the
preparation of drugs, was he not well
vcrsedjjiu thrir properties?"
"Yes I believe so I do Hot klloW.
Why I am asked such questions?"
You will know presently. And now
woman, answer the question I am about to
put to you, as you will be compelled to

What was the nature of the drug which
you or he mixed with the medicine pre
scribed for the late Mrs. Thorndyke?"
A spasmodic, shriek, cheeked by a des
perate eflort partially escaped her, and sho

Court as 1 iterated the question.

The witness looked wildly round the
court, as If in search of counsel or sympa
thy, but encountering none but frowning
and eager faces Thorndyke she could
not diseearn in the darkness she became
giddy and panic-stricken, and seem to lose
all presence ot mind.
"He he he," she last gasped "he
mixed it I do not know Jut
how," she added, pushing back her hair
and pressing her hands against her hot
temples, " can this this be? What can
it mean "
A movement amonirst the bvstanders
just at this moment attracted the notice of
the judge, and he immediately exclaimed.
" The defendent must not leave Court."
An officer placed himself beside the
wretched murderer, as well as forger, and
I resumed the cross-examination of the

Now, woman, answer. Was it your
son this young man who, you perceive
if guilty cannot escapee from justice was
it he who forged the names of tho deceased
Mrs. J horndvkc and of John Cuinuinsl

N0t he not he:" shrieked the
wretched woman. " It was Thorndyke
Thorndyke himself. And then with a
sudden revulsion of feeling, as the conse
quences of what she had uttered flashed
upon her, she exclaimed. " Oh Silas,
what have I said what have I done?"
"Hanged m that's all you accursed
devil!" replied Thorndyke with gloomy
ferocity. " lut I deserve it for trusting
in such an idiot, dolt and fool that I was
for doing it."
The woman sank down in strong con
vulsions and was by direction of the
judge, carried out of,the hall.
The anxiou silence which pervaded the
court during this scene in which the read
er will have observed I played a bold,
tenative and happily successful game, was
broken as the witness was borne off, by
a loud murmur of indignation, followed
by congratulatory exclamations on the
fortunate termination of the suit. The
defendant's counsel threw up their briefs
and a verdict was at once returned for the
All the inculpated parties were speedily
in custody; and the body of Mrs. Thorn
dyke having been disinterested, it was
discovered that she had been destroyed by
bi-chloridc of mercury, of which a consid
erable quanity was detected in the body.
I was not present at the trial of Thorndyke
and his accomplices he for murder ami
Headley for perjury but I saw by the
public prints that he was found guilty, and
executed; the woman was, if I remember
rightly, admitted evidence for tho crown.
Mary Woodloy was of course put into
immediate possession of her parental in
heritance ; and is now at least she was
about four months ago, when I dinned with
her and husband at Dale Farm a comely
prosperous matron; nnd ns happy as a
woman with a numerous progeny and an
,casy tempered partner can in this, accord
ing to romance writers, vale of grief and
tears, expect to be.

"527 A couple of Democratic editors
were taking a ride in a buggy a few days
ago, when the horse started nnd ran nway.
They fell out but received no serious in
jury. We do not know that the falling
out of such people indicates anything
more than that homt men are likely to
get their dues.
JpriyThc two sections of the Democ
racy seem at present to devote their whole
time to rtt(tnj. Their reading, how

range. They arc simply reading oatdi

during which time he has delivered tip

through his instrumentality. It it s;;id
that he never studies his sermons, or (aife
any notes, and frequently docs nut s;h e
his text uutil he rises uj in the pulpit to
preach, and yet, it is said, no two of bis
diseources are alike, either in point ol ':

eloquently, and us.vs the most clmsle and
beautiful language. Calls to preach nf

of a moonlight scene. ..
"After whirling sometime m the clas
sic mazes of a waltz, Cornelia and myself
stepped out unobserved on the balcony,
to enjoy a few of those moments .so prec
ious to lovers. It was a glorious night
the air was cool and refreshing. I
gazed on the beautiful bei ig at my side, I
thought I never saw her look so lovely.
The full moon cast its rays over her who!-
person, and imparting to her curls a still
more golden hue. One of her soft haml
rested in mine, and ever and anon slu
met my ardent gaze with one of her con
fiding looks. Suddenly a change came
over her soft featuresher full red lips
trembled with suppressed emotions, a tewr
drop rested on her long, drooping lashes,
the muscles around her faultKs mouth
convulsed, sho gasped for breath, and,
snatching her baud away from the warm
pressure of my own, hIio turned suddenly
away, and sneezed.
