THE DOUBLY HEN-PECKED.
A HINT TO AMATEURS l.N THE ART OF LOVE."
BY W. ii. KATUN.
,Ye ; who, fatigued with, the tiresome
monotony of single life, and weary of the
frivolities of courtship, c.tek tha myste
rious labyrinths of matrimony, give eyes
awhile, and atlentiveness, while the tale
is told of , Deacon Isebug, and his
charmer, Betsy Spoqlcow.
Abed Nosebug, defOijif the principal
meeting house in Parsnipville, lost hiare
iniiikuble wife Martha. , Martha is a He
brew name for bitterness, and a remark
ably bitier cud she proved for him to
chew, through seventeen years of bitter
tighta and fancies. It whs a wonder how
Nosebug ever chanced io choose her; for
Ulie deacon prided himself upon his knowl
edge of phynlognornyj and Martha's small.

her uneasy manners, shaip tones, quick

But the deacon was a man of strong
faith. He ran the risk, trusted. Io luck,
andjiiHriied; and found that fortune does
not always lavor the brave. - She died at
last, however; for at the end of his ordeal
of seventeen years, Martha, tired of har-
lllli nci wwii njii.uniDuuAimuicu. uuo
,d d cJ elv ou( ai,j
inir her own why, trave up and died, blie
the deacon now had a chance of some res
pite trora the bottle, to which he had des
perately resorted for oblivion of his do
mestic woes. 4
He improved the chance by slow de
grees, and having got rid of his two fatal
dailj companions his two evil spirits
his natural spirits improved and he be
came far more companionable. A natural
consequence was, that, like all other men
thus unbewitched, be paid more attention
to his personal appearance; and his more
spruce costume and apparent efforts to
please, excited the remark, among his
tellow church-members, particularly the
female portion, that he was on the look-out
for a Mrs. Nosebug No. 2.
As this. -suspicion gathered strength,
and the deacon's nose waxed paler at the
tip, a sensation on Ins account was created
among the marriageable .women of about
his age. He was tin fair standing in
church and, society, and had enough
property to keep a wife comfortable, and
none Uuew mis petter man jsiiss seisy
Spooliow, who had for forty ears been
wandering about the garden of life, with
out entering the bowers of matrimony.
She had long wiined for a ticket of ad
mission, but no man bad been gallant or
daring enough to give her one which
might or might.not have proceeded from
her three prominent traits indolence, art
fulness, and a termagant disposition..
"I am determined to try for the dea
con!" nhe resolved. "1 have heard that
he prides bimslf upon his knowledge of
women a sure sign that he is the more
liable to be mistaken; - He will soon be
gin to. feel lonesome without his custom
ary companion, and the more likely to
enter the holy state than if he had always
been a bachelor. I will join his church,
and get acquainted with him right off."
. Miss Spoolcow did so, and threw her
self in the deacon's way as often and as
adroitly as possible; while he, unconscious
man, little dreaming of the net which was
spead for him, an in no hurry to be mar
ried again, exulted in his long-sighed-for
liberty, and looked with an air of the most
lofty independence upon all female crea
tion. ' ' ' '! " .
"I am determine'd" to take my leisure
pick,'.' he i reflected, "at all events, , I
have bad experience .enough,goodness
knows, to enable me to make a wise choice
the second time, 'should the second time
ever come. ,1 haven't mourned seventeen
vests for nothing."
But the burnt child does not always
dread the fire. Hope and self-reliance
will keep singing: of better look next time,
and mortals often give heed tothem.' And
the deacon, after a few months, found his
liberty more lonesome than luxurious, just
as Betsy npooicow natt-anticipated

"You must accomplish a great deal in
the course of a-year, Mias Spoolcow," said
Deacon Nosebug, one morning, as he no
ticed, with staring eyes, an enormous lot
of linnen Which she was measuring, tearing
and sewing upon, as if her life depended
upon it, without allowing bis presence to
interrupt her. ; : w -.:. .-.i '
1 "Evttyloiy tells me so," she replied,
trying to look bashful; 'but it comes so
easy to me to be industrious, that I don't
seem to see it; though I 'am at it all the
time, pretty much." r

and so modest about it.M ' ' ' . 1 .. 1
" "I suppose," resumed Miss Spoolcow,1
seeing that she had made an impression,'
"that it's my contented minj that makes
work so easy for me. i Living singly noth
ing disturbs me. I often wonder that
women will get married, when they can
live so happy without.'' '
"Ahem! Don't want to get married!"
thought the deacon, more interested.
"She's one of a thousand." - But it's owing
to her sweet disposition, I suppose. But
perhaps," he said aloud, "as you are of
such an aotive turn of mind, the duties of
married life would make you still happier."
"It might be," she simpered, in a
faint voice: "but I have always thought
that 1 could do enough to please a hus
band, and if I should dissatisfy him in
anything'' if would break mV neartmy
leeluiffs are so mud and tender.'
What a contrast to Mrs. Nosebug!';' I
thought the deacon. ' If I was dissatis
fied with anything, she'd hrfve broken my
head, or scolded me out of doors. Some
husbands are more exacting than others"
he replied. "It isn't every man that is fit
to be a husband."
"Nor every woman who jsjit to be a
wife," she rejoined. "Though I never
mean to be married, yet if I were a wife,
I should regard my husband as my lord
and master; his wishes to be consulted be
fore mine, in nil thing's; indeed, I don't
see how I could have a wish which was
different from his. 1 have always looked
upon man as a superior , creature, Mr.
Nosebug; and the very thought of quar
reling with a husband, as some wives do,
always makes me feel faint. I hadn't the
pleasure of knowing your Wife, Mr. Nose
bug; but I have always had the idea that
she must have been something next to an
angel mild and heavenly as a wife should
be." ' :
'Ahem! We are all imperfect, Miss
Spoolcow,' and should'nt boast of what we
have had. All is for the best, J suppose,
and it wouldn't be exactly right forme to
wish her back."
"I appreciate your feelings, deacon:
You feel as if it would be hard to get an
other one like her."
"It would be extremely hard," thought
he, "if I' should. Yes, Miss Spoolcow,
when I think of her I feel as if I never
wanted to marry again." '
"A single life has its joys," replied she.
"As for me, I find great pleasure in con
stantly employing myself for good pur
poses. I have often been told that mar
riage ia apt to make most women idle and
frivolous and even dissipated. What a
horrid thing it must be to lose one's inno
cent domestio habits! '. As for me, 1 have
enough" add she fixed her eyes signifi
cantly upon the deacon "quite enough
to support myself and the estates which
have been left me by ahem! that is
whatever property I am worth,l feel that
I am such a yielding person, that a hus
band would easily get all I have from
me," . . ' i
"Her estates! Aha!" thought Nose
bug, "then she has got properly, some
where. That's the reason, perhaps, why
she's in no hurry to get married. Now
Martha hadn't a red when I married her.
Perhaps I've found a mare's nest, after all.
A true man,- Miss Spoolcow," he replied,
"regards a woman, not for what she has
got, but for what she is." ,
fTyend doubt," murmured the wily
spinster, mnocenily; "but T. could so easily
be deceived by a man. I am so unaccus
tomed to the arts . of the world, that I
tremble'all over,' sometimes. , A husband
could do anything, and I not know it.
And if I did, I should never bave spirit
enough to resent it." ' ' ' .'
' ' "Charminir.' confidintr. Industrious.

doubt. She don't know her own value;
and yet here she is, forty years of age I
suppose. Just the woman for me. Not
too old, for I'm forty-five; and not too
young, neither! 1 hope her diffidence
won't stand in the way. A regular prize!

wives are to you, Miss Spoolcow, you

The deacon consentedT forTieloowas
astonished at his own daring, and thought
a little time to cool would do no harm.
And they parted each with a connubial
future looming gloriously in view. :
"Am I dreaming?" exclaimed Miss
Spoolcow, giving the work a kick, as soon
as he had gone. i
"She called me dear deacon, ejacuiaten

grumbled the deacon. "Perhaps she 11
refuse me after all."
Some meddling woman will dissuade
him. If she does, Parsnipv.lle shall be
too hot to hold her?" i , '
Somebody will tell her how I used to
drink," groaned the deacon..' "How long
the time seems.'.' -
Restless were the days and sleepless
the nights which divided Abed from his
Betsy; and they actually grew thin in the
interval. Even the fire fled from Us won
ted place at the end of Nosebug's nose,
and liia appearance was much improved
thereby when, at the end ol the tedious
threes dayslie reappeared Deiore juis
So great was. their joy at meeting, mat
they ru6hed into each other a arms the
first thing; and to make up for lost time,
within half an hour they had settled the
preliminaries, and the happy, day was as-
sig:iu. . y . r
And the happy day camel .lt waa, in
deed, a happy day. It was a shiny" sum
mer Sunday morning; and the Dirds ot
Parsnipville sang with wiiisual sweetness
in the ears of the trustful couple, as .they
walked to the village church, and a sky
blue swallow-tail and a salmon-colored
silk were united in the holy bouds of wed
lock before the astonished village eyes.
Everybody was astonished, that a man
who had smarted ,under matrimonial tyr
anny for seventeen years, and who prided
himself, besides, on ins knowledge oi
womankind, should so soon seal, his fate
again, by wedding a woman whom every
body else in ibe village knew to oe the
quintessence of deceit, of indolence and
old-maidish spite. ;
And if they were so astonished at this
most unexpected union, what must Abed
Noseburg himself bave been within forty-
eight hours after?
.Mow Mrs. JNosebug, Jo. 2, siioweu
her true colors. Now he found that she
had no properly but his. Now he found
that if No. .1 had been a spit-fire, No. 2
wait a tigress. , Now, for the first time 'n
his life, he doubted not only his knowl
edge of woman, but his own senses; and
when he heard the awful Betsy's voice,
screaming after him about the house, or
saw her great bouncing body lying lazily
in a chair, doing nothing for hours, he re
tired to some corner, and, looking over
his reddening nose into the future, lifted
up liis hands, and said nothing.
He dared not! Abed Nosebug felt that

Cnrlnff Green Corn.
The following is the Indian biethod by
which they treat green com for making
succotash, &c, during the winter. When
the green corn is fit for use, a pit is dug
from two to three teet in diameter at top,
and gradually enlarging at bottom, say
rive teet down, from six to eight feet in
diameter. A large fire is then built near
by, on which stones are heated, and when
red hot, the stone9 and live coals are shov
eled into the bottom of the pit, and sprin
kled over with fine loose dirt. The corn
is then thrown in with husks on, just as it.
is pulled from: the stalk, until the pit is
full Then comes a thin layer of loose
dirt, then hot stone's, (enough to close the
pit,) and the whole covered with earth to
retain the heat. When the whole cools
off, (which takes several days, ) the pit is
opened and the corn b found to be most
delightfully cooked. When oool, the
busks are stripped otf and the corn dried
in the sun; when thoroughly dried, the
corn is shelled off easily, and is then
packed away in bags for use.
A writer in the Columbus (Georgia)
'Sun" gives the following as the best rec
ipe for making tomato catsup: To a half
bushel of skinned tomatoes add one quart
of good vinegar, one pound of salt, quai -
ter of a pound of black peppeer, two
ounces of African cayenne, quarter of a
pound ot allspice, one ounce of cloves,
three boxes of mustard, twenty cloves of
garlic, six good onions, two pounds of
brown sugar and one handful of peach
leaves." Boil this mass for three hours,
constantly stirring it to keep it from burn
ing. When cool strain it through a fine
sieve or a coarse cloth, and bottle it for
future use. It will improve by a;e, and
create and give zest to appetite almost un
der the nba of death.
Curing Green Bcnns for Winter
Pick good tender, sweet string beans,
cut them into pieces about three-quarters
of an inch in length, throw them into
boiling water, let them stand five minutes;
then, having the oven heated just hot
enough to avoid burning the beans, spread
on tin or earthen dishes, set them into the
oven and let them remain there till per
fectly dry, when they should be put up in
small bags, and hung in a cool dry place.
When you wish to cook a mcBs of corn
and beans, put them to soak over Dight
in warm water, and cook them as usual.

Why He Fell.
We often wonder that certain men and
women are left by God to the commission
of sins which shock ua. We wonder how,
under the temptation of a single hour, they
fell from the very hights of virtue and of
honor, into sin and shame. The fact is
that there are no such falls as these, or
there are next to none. These men and
women are those who have dallied with
temptation have exposed themselves to
the influence of it, and have been weakened
and corrupted by it. If we could fiet at
the secret histories of those who stand
suddenly discovered as vicious, we should
find that they had been through this most
polluting preparatory process that they
had been in the habit of going out and
meeting temptation in order that they
might enjoy its excitements that under
neath a blameless outward life they have
welcomed and entertained sin in their im
aginations, until their moral sense was
blunted, and they were ready for the deed
of which they thought they were incapa

ing that dropping the latch was a formality.
The venerable host and hostess, in theij'
own apartment, usually enjoy the sociely
of two sons, two daughters, sundry dogs
and niggers, and as mtny Iodgor3 as may
deem it prudent to risk the somewhat .
equivocal allotment of sleeping partners.
On the nrghlin question, our friend, after
a hearty supper of h im and eggs, and a
canvas of the Fiery Forkeis the old lady
having pointed out his bed---felt very
warm, and only looked for an opportunity
to "turn in," trough the mosquitoei were
trumpeting all sorts of wrath, and nothing
appeared to b.r them. The dogs flung
themselves along the floor, or again rose
rest'esslyv and sought the .doorstep ; , thy

-The candidate yawned, looked at his,,
bed, went to the door, looked at the daugh

sealed himself upon "the downey," and
pulled off his coat. Well, he pulled off
his coat; and then he called the old la-ly's
atteniion to the fact that it would never do
to sleep in his muddy trowsers; and then
he undid his ve t, and then he whistled
again, and then suddenly an idea of her
lodger's possible embarrassment seemed,
to flash upon the old, woman, and she cried:
"Gals, jist turn your backs around till
the stranger gits into bed." '
The backs were turned, and the stran-i
ger tlid get into bed in 'less than no lime,'
when the' hostess again spoke: .

By this time our friend's sleepy fit some
how, was over, and though he did "kiver
up," as desired, somehow or other the old
counterpane was equally kind in hiding
his blushes and favoring his sly glances.
The nymphs soon stowed away, for there
were neither bustles to unhitch, nor cor
sets to unlace, when their mamma, evi
dently anxious not to smother her guest,
considerably relieved him, by saying:
"You can unkiver, now, stranger I'm
married folks, and you ain't aleard of me,
The stranger happened to be "married
folks," himself; he unkivered and turned
his back with true connubial indifference
as far as the ancient lady was concerned;
but with regard to the "gals," he declared
that his half-raiaed curiosity inspired the
most, tormenting dreams of mermaids that
ever he experienced.

practice of gaming, are nightly persisted
