I-,!K 'ST BTLTAKDS C0BB.JR. ! ,i.
James Lanning. vas a mechanic a
v6ung, honest man,' whose highest ambi
lion' was to gain a comfortable home for
himself and wife, and to be thought well
of by,hi8 ne'Ji'lvboi'8. ,;tlle had built lum
sell a house, and there still remained tiDon
it a moi tg.ige of five hundred dollars; but
this sum he hoped to pay in a very few
years if he only had his health. He had
calculaietfexactly how lonir it would take
him to clear off this incumbrance, and he
went at work with his eyes open
One evening, James came home to his
supper more thoughtful than Usual. His
young wife noticed his manner, and she
inquired its cause. .
"What is it James?" she kindly asked
"Why, I never saw you look so sober be
fore." ' .:
"Well, I'll tell yon, Hannah," returned
the young, man, with a slight liesitmion in
manner. ."I have been thinking that 1
should buy a lottery ticket." , .
Haniixh Lnnning did notanswei imme
diately.1 She looked down and smonthed
i he silken, hair of her babe wlii'jh vine
chirping like u. little robin in -her amis,
and the sluidfa of her handsome features
Showed that, she whs taking time to i Link.
'""How much will it cost?" she at length
asked, looking hull-timidly up into' her
husband's face. .:''.' '
"Twenty dollars," returned James, try
ing to HHSiiuira confidence wliicli he did
"And have you made up your mind to
buy it." r
"Wtll, I think I shall. What do you
think about ii?" i ; . '
"If yon should ask my advice, James,
1 should say, do' nut buy it." ,
' Bui why so?" , 4,...
"For many reasons," returned the wife,
in a trembling tone. She would not of
fend her husband, and she shrank from
giving him advice which he might not
lolluw. "In the nrst place, 1 think the
whole scheme of lotteries is a bad one; and
then you have ho money to rise," ,
"Rut iust look at the prizes,'" said
James, drawing a "scheme' fiom- his
pocket. "Here is one prize of tventy
thousand dollars,' another of ten. thousand,
and so on, Something tells me that, if 1
buy a ticket' I shall diaw a large prize.
And then just think, hove easily I could
pay all up for my bouse, and perhaps have
a good handsome sum left." .- i
The young mnn poke with much ear
nestnesn and assurance, but he saw that
there was a cloud upon his wife's brow.
"It seems to me that the chance of
drawing a prize is very doubtful," said,
Hannah, as she took the scheme. ' "Here
are many thousand tickets to .be sold."
The babe tried, hard to snatch the paper,
and Hannah laid it aside.
"I think I shall pin the risk," resumed
James, glancing, once more over the pa
per, ana resting with rt nervous longing
upon the figures which represented the
higher prizes. " There's Barney; he drew
eight hundred dollars about a year ago."
"Yes, I know it," said Hannah, with
more warmth than she had before mani
fested, "and what has become of , the
money? You knpw be has squandered it
all away. Ah, James, money is of no use
to our happiness unless we come honestly
by it." ,,.v, !,.:
"Honestly?" repeated1 the young man.
"Surely, there is nothing dishonest in draw
ing a prize at a lottery."
"I think there i6,M kindly, but erpphat
ically, returned the wife,, '.'All games of
hazard, where money is at stake, are dis
honest. , -.Werei jou- to draw r a prize of
twenty thousand dollars, you would rob a
thousand men of twenty dollars cash; or,
at least, you would take froiw them money
for which you returned them no equivalent.
Is it not gambling in every sense' of the
word?" '; ; "
"0, no; you look upon the matter in: too
strong a ligbt." . : - ...' .,, , , y-
"Perhaps, I do; but so it look to me.
What you may draw some one else must
lose; and perhaps it may be some one who
can afford the loss no better than you can.
I wouldn't buy the ticket, James. ' Let us
live on the products of our honest gains,
and we shall be happier," t , " .
. ''James La.uning was uneasy, ,- He had
no answer for his wife's aiguments; at
least, no answer that could 6pring from
his moral, convictions, and he let the mat
ter drop. But the young roan could not
drive the syren from his he.trt. - All the
next day h'S Jiead was full of "prizes,"
and while he' was at, jbis Vori,,h kept
muttering over, to himself, Twenty thou
Mnd dollars": "Ten thousand dol'ars,"
"Fire itpusantj dpllara," (ind''Bp'oi'-' r"i '
When he went home (he next nijrht, he
was also unhappy, with the nervous anxi
ety into which he "had, thrown himself.
..r , 1 1' 'ii i c :i' '.,i
ine tempter nau graspea nim-uriiny, nn
whenever'he' tlioUffht of the lottery, he
eaw nbtlnog' but piles of gold and silver.
In snort, James iianning Jiaa maae up uis
mind that. h .woujd by .the .ticket., t He.
went to the little box wliere . he had
already a hundred and twenty dollars laid
up't6ward: paying TnT'the mortgage "ripdn
his house. - The lock dioked with a start
liriar soundL and 'When h threA,,backtttie
'coyer, , he nesitaieu, jiootteo; an . "
wile, ana hr:sawt4y!t,5.iie wi9 enti.
v'0rrnT sure I sliall i raw' a prize, " lie
snid, with a faint,' fading smile. ' R'
He took fou half-eagles from the box,
and put, them into his pocket. His wife
said nothing.., She played with her babe
to hide her Badness for she did not wish
to say more on the subject She had seen
that little pile of gold gradually accumu
lating, and both she and her husband; had
been happy iu anticipating the day when
the pretty cottage would be all their own.
But wheii she saw' those four pieces of
gold taken away from the store, she felt
a foreshadowing of evil,:; She might have
spoken again against the movement, but
she saw that her husband was sorely ten
der on the subject, and she left the affair
go to the hands of fate. A week elapsed
from the time that James bought his ticket
to the drawing of tl)e lottery, and during
that time the young man had not a mo
ment of real enjoyment.'- He was alterna
ting between hope and fear, and his mind
was constantly on the stretch.
At length the day arrived.- James went
to the office, and found that the drawing
had taken place, and that the list of prizes
had been,' made out. He seized the list
and turned a way,' so tliat those who stood
around should not See ! this ' fact. He
read the list through, but he searched for
his number in vain; ' It was not there.
He had drawn a blank! He left the office
an unhappy roan. Those twenty dollars
which he had lost had been the saving of
two months of hard labor, and he felt their
loss most keenly. :
When he returned home that night he
told his wife that he had lost, .She found
no fault with him. She only kissed him,
and told him that the lesson was a good
a one, even though it had been dearly
But James Lanning was not satisfied.
He brooded over bis loss with a bitter
spirit thai he might yei draw a prize! Ha
wished that he hud not bought the "first
ticket, and he thought that if he could
only g t back his twenty dollars he would
buy no more; but he iould not rest Under
his loss. He wis determined to make one
more trial, and he did 60. . This time, he
purchased the ticket without his .wife's
knowledge. ; The result was the same as
before., , He drew a blank!
"Forty dollars!" was a sentence that
dwelt fearfully upon theyoung mechanic's
lip. . "0, 1 must draw a prize, I must
make up wrist t have lost! . Let me ooce
do that, and I'll buy no more tickets.
Another twenty dollars was taken from
the little bank, another ticket was bought.
another blank was drawn! ' At the end of
ihree months the Utile bank was empty,
and James Lanning had the last ticket in
his pocket. Ah, how earnestly he prayed
that ftu ticket might draw the prize; He
had become pHle and care-worn, and his
wjfe, poor, confiding soul., thought he only
repined because he .had lost twenty dol
lars. When she would try to cheer him
he would laugh, and try to make the mat
"James," said his wife to him one day
it was the day before that on which the
lottery was to be drawn in which he held
the sixth ticket "Mr. Rowse has been
here to-day after his semi-annual interest.
I told him you would see him to-morrow."
"Yes, I will," said James, in a faint
tone. "Yes, to-morrow I shall pay blm.'!
Young Lanning thought of the lottery,
and of the prize. This was his sixth trial,
and he felt sure that he should draw.
The morrow came, and when James
Lanning returned to his home at night he
was penniless! - All his golden visions
had faded away, and be was left in dark
ness and misery. ., ,
. ; "James, have you paid Mr. Rrowse his
interest yet?", asked Hannah. V, S' ', ''J
The young mau leaned his head upon
his hands and groaned aloud.'; . , '
f 'For Heaven's sake, James, what has
happened?'' Cried the startled wife, spring
ing to the side of her husband, and twin
ing her arm about his neck.
The yonng man looked up with a wild,
haggard expression. ' His lips were blood
less, and his features weieall stricken with
a death-hue. ' ' ''-' 1 !"- 4 - '
"What is it? 0, what?" murmured
the wife. . ' ' '', ' ''' ' '' ' ' '
: ' "Go look in our box our little bank!"
groaned the poor man. "
i Hannah hastened away, and when she
returned she bore the empty box in her
hand. .- i-V-J . ' .. a ;
i , '.'Robbed!" ,- she gasped, as she sank
tremblingly down by her husband's side.
!i"Yes, Hannah,?, whispered, the hus
The stricken wife gazed upon her hus
band with a vacant look, for at first &he re
membered his behaviour for weeks back
she remembered how he had murmured
in his J sleep of lotteries . and tickets, of
blanks and prizes, and gradually the truth
broke in upon be'r. '. " '
"I have done it all'Hannah!" hoarsely
whispered the condemned roan, when he
saw that his wife had guessed the truth.
. "All, all has gone for lottery tickets;
The demon tempter lured me he held up
glittering gold, jn his hand, but he gave
me Doue of it. Q, do' not chide me! You
know not ' what I have suffered what
hours of agony I have passed and you
cannot know how cold is my heart now. 0,

wife, as she grew her band icros h'erbus

but bere might be many calamities worse
than that. Courage James; we will soon

tip 6a live next-day,t noon Hannah
Lanning gave her, husband a receipt for
fifteen dollars from Mr. Rowse. .
"Here," said she, "the interest is paid.
Now let us forget all that has passed, and
commence again." !' ; i'
"But bow what has paid this?" asked
James, gazing first upon the receipt, and
men upon nis wite. (
"Never mind.": '
"Ay, but I must mind. Tell me, Han
nab." . - -:.!. -I
"Well, I have sold my gold watch."
".Sold it!" . .
. "But I can buy it back again. The man
will not part with it, if I want it. But I
don't want it, James, till we at able.
Perhaps 1 shall never want it. You must
uot chide me, for never did I derive one
iota of the pleasure from its possession
that I now feel in the result of its dispo
sal.'" .:.. - .
"James Lanning clasped his wife to his
bosom, and he murmured a prayer, and
in that prayer there was a pledge.
. ' :
! Two' years passed away,' and during
that time James Lanning lost not a single
day from his work. He was as punctual
as the sun, and the result was sure. ,
It was late one Saturday evening when
he came home. ' After supper he drew a
paper from his pocket and laid it upon
the table. . !
"There, Hannah," ss id he, while, a
noble pride beamed in eveiy feature, 'tlit
is my mortgage. I've paid it every
cent. 1 ve bought it with dollars, every
one of which has been honestly earned by
the sweat of my brow. I am happy
uow. , , . -.lV,.-. .
Hannah Lanning saw that her husband
had opened his arms, and site sat down
upon his knee, and laid her bead upon his
shoulder.' '' ' ''-1 ' ' '' - :
j "O,. blessed moment!" she murmured
"Yes, it is a blessed ''moment," re
sponded the huMband. "Do you remem
ber. Hannah, the hour ot bitterness that
we saw two yars ago?'' ''
The wife shuddered, but she made no
reply. - ;-
"Ah," continued the young man, "I
have never forgotten that bitter lesson;
and even now I tremble when I tliink
how fatally I was deceived by the tempter
that1 has lured thousands to destruction.
"But its terror is Icwt in this happy
momen," said Hannah, looking up with a
"Its terror may be lost," resumed
James, "but its lesson mut never be tor
gotten. Ah, the luring lottery ticket has
a dark side a 6ide which few see until
they feel it."
"And are not all its sides dark?" softly
asked the wife. "If there is any bright
ness about it, it is only the glare of the
fatal ignus faiuuS) which can only lead
the wayward traveler.mto danger and uis
"You are right)" my dear " wife. You
were right at first. Ah, ' he continued,
as he drew the faithful being more closely
to his bosom, "if husbands would oftener
obey the tender dictates of the loving wife,
there would be far less of misery in the
world than there is now."
. Silent Influences.
Silent influences are continually about
us on every side, and they are quietly per
forming their mystic work Unnoted, in
secret the dilligeut task goes on, till the
gigantic result in all the bnished com
pleteness of a master hand that never errs
startles us into the belief . that a miracle
is wrought.. Noiselessly, with untiring
vigilance,, secret agents toil ; in nature s
vast laboratory, and their grand and
mighty' achievements awaken our admi
ration and awe. Stealthily, silently has
the mighty water changed its course, and
where first but a glimpse of the silvery
sheet could be caught, the foaming bil
lows now roll and dance in their wild
sports; and terra fiima has arisen on the
other side far beyond, where but a little
time ago, and the sheeny wave danced at
our very feet. . The workings of a power
unseen spreads from the tiny acorn to the
majestic oak. ' Atom by atom, grain by
gram, rook against ' rock, pile tlie lofty
mountains, , -Whose cloud-curtained, sum
mits, clouded in eternal 6nows, pierce far
heavenward, "where the eagle builds not
his, eyre, and the startled chamois fears
to climb.' Within us, around ns, on ei
ther hand silent influences toil on their
mystic mission, unveiling the destinies
of nations, solving the problems of worlds.
Separated .from childhood's hours and
friends, far out on the swelling tide, in
stern con Act with raging storms, that ever
assail: the mariner on "life's tempestuous
sea," the silent influences of a. gently
spoken precept in by-gone years comes to
us to soothe and calm tha troubled spirit,
and to incite higher and noblef aspira
tions. Welling up - perennial from the
record of departed years, a word, a look,
comes to us, when the ; lips that uttered,
the eye that gave, are closed and still, and
the freed spirit beyond r' v ' '
, o,V f "That stream whose narrow tide
The known and nnkoown worlds divided
is solving the hidden mysteries of eter
nity. ..Tbeir silent, silent influence'; like
the welcome beacon cheer the dark way,
dispel the darkening, shadows', and' cast

Women in the Gnrrten.
Much in these days is said about the
sphere of woman. On the vexed question
we have nothing to say. . The culture of
the soil, the body and the soul are our
themes. Rich soils, healthy bodies, pure,
cultivated souls, those are what we are
aiming at. And to thie end we recom
mend that every country woman have a
garden that she kp and dress with her
own hands, or that she supervise and
manage. The culture of strawberries,
raspberries, blackberries, , gooseberries,
currants and garden produce is as delight
ful and profitable as anything which a wo
man can engage iu. She may sprinkle
her garden well with flowers. All the
better for that. A snow-ball in this cor
ner a rose in that, a dahlia bed here, and a
moss border there will not be out of place.
Only let the substantial and useful consti
tute the chief part. , A 'touch of the orn
ate, like a ribbon on a good bonnet, is not
the least objectionable, , In all the schools
the giils study botany. In all families the
women ought to practice botany. It U
healthful, pleasing and useful. The prin
ciples of borticuliure are the principles of
botany put into practice.; Farmers study
agriculture, why should not their wives
and daughters study horticulture? If any
employ Hient is feminine, it would seem
that this is. . If any is healthy,, .this must
be. If any is pleasurable, none can be
more so than this. A rich bed of straw
berries, a bush of blackberries or currants,
a border of flowers produced by one's own
hand,- what can well afford a more rational
satisfaction? We say to all our country
sisters, have a garden, if only a email one,
and do your best with it. Plant it with
what you think best, with 8 good variety,
and see what you can do with it. What
woman cannot raise beets, tomatoes, mel
ons, onions, lettuce, and furnish her own
table with them? What woman eannot
plant a raspberry bush, or currant, or
gooseberry, 'and tend it well? Come,
good women,' study your health,' your
usefulness and happiness, and your ami
dren also. Valley Farmer; ' 1
Neatness lii Dress. '." ;'
' The neglect of the outward appearance
indicates either a little . mind, or a disre
gard to the opinion of our neighbors.
One sbould always; be neat and clean in
person and dress, because this is an evi
dence of respectability. No lady who hai
any regard for herself, or any respect for
the society' in which she moves, will be
slovenly in her appearance, or careless in
her attire. It is true, there-is danger
in being too particular, but every lady is
entitled to follow her own taste as to dress,
provided she dresses suitably that is, ac
cording to her age and circumstances.
; The young of either sex, but particu
larly the lemale, ought to regard their ex
ternal deportment and appearance as, to a
certain extent, essential, to character. -'
To dress simply, and without ostenta
tion, is a mark of modesty; but, in endeav
oring to avoid everything like display,
young ladies, especially", should be careful
not to fall into the opposite extreme that
of prudery., '. There is more sincerity, if
there be less, nicety, in the conduct of a
realy, virtuous woman, than there1 is in thAt
of a prude;' and some degree of freedom,
so far from being incompatible with the
strictest virtue, is one of its principal priv
ileges. "If a lady 'is obliged to receive
company en dishabille it is a 6ign of good
breeding if she appears perfectly at ease,
arid makes little or 'no apology 'for her
appearance, ' ':
, Some Husband Oo So.

Sad Scknk in a Brooklyn Coukt.-t-The
New York Evening "Post" of Thurs
A handsome and 'respectably dressed
woman was brought into Justice Coin
well' Court," Brooklyn, this morning, in
a slate of beastly iuloxiiatiou. While in
charge of the officers in the court she took
a fil of delirium tremens, and ihe scene
that ensued was heart-rending beyond de
scription. ' Her shrieks were bo terrible and
agonising that even the officers of the
Couit, used to such scenes, were visibly
moved. We learned, from one of the ofri
cers of tlie Court, that this woman' was
the wife ot an eminent physician, and but
a short lime since highly respected as an
exemplary wile and mother, and had every
thing around her to make her life happy,
but in an evil hour she yielded to the vice
of intemperance, and since then has gone
down, step by step, in her sad career.
Her husband .tried every means , in his
power to reclaim her, but without avail,
and, as a final resort, was obliged to have
her arrested and sent to the penitentiary
' Fioiit on a Hocsk-top Two masons
who were employed in building a chimney
on top of a new house in Congiess street
got into a quarrel yesterday, in conse
quence of too free indulgence in intoxica
ting liquors. Tliey maintained their pro
carious footing and carried on the dispute
by holding to the half finished chimney,
and striking at each other with trowels
over the top of it. This method of fight
ing being rather slow, one of them
snatched up a brick, and heedless of con
sequences, hurled it at the other's head.
The unfortunate individual who received
this salute toppled over and rolled off the
roof, while the victor coolly resumed his
trowel, and added a few more bricks to the
chimney. Healing no noise below, his
curiosity induced him to slide down 10 the
eaves and look over, wheu his gaze, was
greeted by the sight of his late antagonist
scrambling up a scaffold pole with ven
geance ui hiseye, and no signs of a broken
neck, whereupon he took to flight and slid

nominate a candidate who will unite these
S;atcs we shall elect him. Of all of them,
Pennsylvania and New Jersey are the only
ones th'il are regarded as doubtful; and
these are doubtful, not. as against
the AdminLsiraiion, but as in favor of the
c.-indiila.e who may be nominated on the
oilier side. If a man is nominated who
will occupy the same political position as
the Slut" cundidutes who have jat been elec-
ted in Peimsilvunia, the same position as
llie men who were elected in twenty-two
out of the iweiiiy-tive Congressional did- ,
tricts, the same position as the candidate
who received u majority of over 20.0UU
for Judge of the Supreme Court, we may
reasonably srpose that he will secure tho
electoral vote of that State, and with it of
New Jersey, which strongly sympathizes
with Pemisyltmnia in the peculiar politics
of that great Stale.

it will be remembered, was arrested here

found guilty. His honor, Judge Caldwell,
sentenced him to receive forty lashes on

Upon asking, the guide informed him '
that it was the skull of St. Patrick. Pass- ,
ing along still further in the same place,
he met with another skull, evidently that
of a full-grown man.' "Whose skull is
this?" he asked. "That is the skull of St. .
