" Mayn't I go with you p:t ? Measo say
Ihe words were uttered in a plaintive
and .sadly entreating tone, the bauds of the
speaker clasping the knees of the listener.
It was a boy of neven short years who
li."n.'d them : a beautiful boy with a fair
high brow, around which there clustered j
a glorious wealth of auburn curi.s ; with,
dark flashing eyes, cheek ro.y with health;
Up.4 liko the cherries of summer, and a
voiec like the birds that taste them.
There were learn in those eyes at this time
though, aud the dimpled mouth was quiv
ering. It was a man of pome five and thirty
years who listened to his plea ; a man
who had been of noble looks aud princely
bearing. Ay, hud ba n'J blighting truth,
was written over forehead and face.
His locks were- matted, his forehead
scowling, his eyes yed but not with
tears ; there were furrows on his check,
too, and brutish looks to tho expression of
his lips. Twice did the little b y address
hiui ere he answered. Then pushing tho
child rudely from him, ho said in a stein
voice, " No, no. It's no place for you.
Again those fair small haudi eucirclcd
" You go, pppn. Wliy can't I too? Do
let mc go."
For f momeDt the heart of the inebri
ate seemed to wake from its sleep. He
shuddered as he thought of the character
of the place his pure-soiilcd boy would
enter, lie took the child tendujy in his
arms and kissed him as of old, then puttiug
him down, he said kindly :

she went out. A wealthy mother
would have beeu seared to death, at tho
thought only ol leaving so young a boy at

Hut poor Mrs. M. knew well she could
trust Willie with his sister, and as for
burning up, there were not coals enough to
thaw his blue, stifTfingers. No, she did, nut
fuar to go and leave him, for he had thus
been left many a time and always earefully
And ho meant to now; lutpoor little
fellow! his thoughts would wander to that
brilliant corner store whether he knew his
father always weut at evening, ''and his
brain was busy with e.iger wanderings. He

there mur-t be something there he liked,
for hencver came agaiu till long after W illie

At length he whispered eagerly, as if
to encourage a hinging wish, 14 Papa used
to tell me, if 1 wanted to know ten bad,
to peroevcrc and I would find it out. Now
I do want to know what makes him hive
to go there so. I know there must b
pretty things behind those windows. I
shoufdu't wonder," aud his checks were
glowing, if it was like a fairy house. Why
can't I go ?
Ronr Willie! The, temptation to know
was too strong to bo reaistcd ; so he hunt
ed through the closet for a candle, for lu
was a tho'tful little fellow and would not
leave his little sister to the only danger that
could menace her. He found a bit of
tallow dip, and lighting it, drew tho staud
cloao to her, that the flames might scare
away the rats and mice should thry sally
out cp2 his return.

he. pressing a tender kiss on her sleeping
lips, and drawing the WanVet closo over
her fair arms. 14 No I'll oomo back soon,
but I doeo want to tako a peep."

At the supposed end of what has al

of Mammoth Cave, nino mile; from iu en

whilst bengal lights were thrown t own to

A c.uplo of weeks ago, however, a gen
tleman of Louisville, whoe nerves never
tremble at mortal danger, being at Mam
moth Cave with Professor Wright of our
city and others determined, no natter
what the damages and dirriculties might
ho, to cxploro the depths of the MaeMrom.
Mr. Piuctor, the enterprising proprie
tor of tlm eavr, sent to Nashville and
procured a hn lope of great strength ax
pressly for tho purpose. Tho ropo and
fcomo necessary timbers were borne by the
guides and others to the point of prop.ccd
exploration . Tho arrangements being
soou completed, the rope, with a fragment
of a rock nthxed to it, was lot down nnd
swung to and fro to dislodge any loose
rocks that would be likely to fall at tho
touch. Several were thus dblulcd, and
the long continued revcrbation, rising up
like distant thunder from below, proclaim-
ed the depth of tho horrid chasm. Thtn
the young hera ot the occasion, with sov-:
eral hats drawn over his head to pintcet
it aa far as possible against any ma.-.'cs
falling from above, and with a light iu his
hand ami tho ropo fastened around iW
body, took his pbco over the awful pit,
and directed the half dozcu men, who held
the end of tho rope, to let him dowu into
the Cimmerian g ootn.
Wc have heard from hia own lips an ac
count of his descent. Occasionally masses
of earth aud rock went whizzing past, but
none struck him. Thirty or forty feet
from the top, he saw a ledge from which,
a he judged by appearances, two or three
avenues ica ou iu aiuercut directions.

I timate terms with a female who figured ir
our courts a few months ngo as tho
pio.iccutiix cf two police officers of tho
Fourth Station, and this intimacy had
proceeded so far that he wna in possession
ot her daguerreotype ad things. A few
d.iy. ago one of the ypntlemaris children
while at play, found tho ph tine and sev
eral lctteia from the frail one, concealed
under the carpet, and by tin's rut ana they
were placed in posacssioj. of the injured
wife. Of coursa this ere ted quite a mat
rimonial breeze. The wife sought the fe
male who had broken her pcaco of mind
and in the course of their interview an
arrangement w is made, by tho terms of
which th letters which bid passed bc-
i twoen tho lovers were to bo exchanged.
Tho letters which, were addavsd to the
hu.il and were promptly h&uJtd over to the

or honorable purposo.

commenced an attack upon the tductr of
her husband's affections with the cowhide,
which she used with all the energy which
