If such It spot were really known,
Dame Peace might claim it as her own j

There, like a queen might reign nnd live
Where every ono would soon forgive
The little slights they might receive

The mischief makers that remove
Far from our hearts tlio warmth of love,

They seem to take one's part, but when
They've heard our case, unkindly then
They soon retail them all again, '

And then they have inch a cunning way
Of telling tales. They softly say,

Oh I that the mischief-making crew
Were all reduced to one or two,
And they were painted ml or blue,
That every one might know them;
Then would the village soon forget
To rage and quarrel, fume and fret,
And fall into an angry pet,
With things too much below them.
For it's a sad degrading part,
To make another's bosom smart,
And plant a dagger iu the heart,
Wc ought to love and cherish ; ;
Theu let us evermore be found
In qucitness with all around,
While friendship, pence, and joy abound,
And angry feelings perish,

A RUNAWAY MATCH.
A great many years since, when
bright-eyed and fair haired lasses
were not so plenty in New England
as they are now, there dwelt in the
town of I , a pretty village,
distant some live and twenty miles
trom "market town," a peculiar
comely and graceful maiden, who
had a peculiarly ugly and cross
grained but wealthy father.
Minnie was Danlbrth's only child
and report said truly that she would
be his sole legatee,. The old man
was sturdy larmer, and was esti

would have supposed for one mo

to look upon beauty and compara

Walker, or he was crenerallv called
Joe, and he was simply a farmer
employed by old Danforth, who had
entrusted doe with tne management
of his place for two or three years.
But a very excellent farmer, and
right good manager, was this plain
unassuming, but good looking Joe

twenty-three: and" lie actually fell

. Thinsrs went on mernlv fnr a time
but old Danforth discovered certain
glances and attentions between
them, which excited hia ansniVinns.
Very soon afterwards Joe learned

three months i longer, did Joo disap

me. This was unusual, and Dan
fiprth was determined to know the
ause of it.
Joo frankly confessed that he was
h love with a man's daughter who
lesidod less then tli ee miles distant;
!iilt the old man had utterly refused
o entertain his application for tho

"Well Joe, is she a buxom lass?"
4Yes, yes,' said Joe. 'That is for
other folks to say. I am not much
of a J udgo myself.'
'And you liko her?'
Then marry her,' said old Dan
forth.' ' 'But I cannot tho father objects.'
Tooh!' continued Danforth, 'let
him do so; what need you care? Run
away with her.'
'Yes. Off with her at once. If
the girl will join all right.. Marry
her. Bring her here; you shall have
the cottago at the foot of the lane:
I'll furnish it for you, your wages
shall be increased, and the man
may like it or not, as ho will.
'No buts, Joe. Do as I bid you.
Go about it at once, and '
'You'll stand by me?'
'Yes, to the last. I know you
J oe. You are a good fellow, a good
workman, and will make anybody
a goad son or husband.'
'The old iellow will be so mad,
'Who cares, I say? Go on quickly
'To-morrow night, then,' said Joe.
'Yes,' said Danforth.
'I will hire Glover's horse.'
'No you shan't.'
'I say no. Take my horse the

'Bah! he is an old fool whoever

'The old nian will be astonished.'
'Never mind, go on. We will
turn the laugh on him. I will take
care of you and your wife at anv
'I will do it,' said Joe.
'You shall,' said Danforth, and
they parted iu the very best of spir

leading the spunky auiinal himself
into the road, away went happy Joe
Walker in search of his bride.
A few rods from tho house he
found her, as per previous arrange
ments, and repairing to the next
village, the parson very quickly
made them one in holy wedlock.
Joe took his bride and soon dashed
back to the village of P , and
halted at old Danfortb's house, who
was already looking for him, and
who received him with open arms.
'Is it done?' cried the old man.
'Yes,' answered Joe.
'Bring her in, bring her in,' con
tinued the old lellow in high glee:
'never mind compliments, no mat
ter about the dark entry here, here,
Joe, to the right, in the best parlor;
we will have a time now, sure!' and
the anxious farmer rushed away for
lights, and returned almost immedi
ately 'Here is the certificate, sir,' said
'Yes, yes '
'And this is my wife, he continu
ed, as he passed up his beautiful
bride Minnie Danforthl '
'What!' roared the old file, 'what
did you say, you villian,you scamp,
audacious cheat; you you.'
'it is the truth, sir, we are lawful
ly married. You assisted me, you
planned the whole affair, you lent
me your horse, you thought me last

And the entreaties of a happy cou

old man's ire, and to persuade him
to acknowledge the union.

and he saw how useless it would

lie crave in reluctantly, and the
fair Minnie Danforth was overjoyed
to be duly acknowledged as Mrs.
The marriage proved a joyful one
and the original assertion of old
Danforth proved truthful in every
respect, tho cunning lover was a
good son and a faithlul husband,
and lived many years to enjoy the
happiness which followed upon his
runaway match; while the old man
never cared to hear about the de
tails of tho elopement, for he saw
how completely he overshot his

The clerk, supposing the man to

him to speak louder, so that ho

the name of the party for whom ho
wanted the letter.
"Louder 1" cried the man.
"What name?" yelled tho clerk.

ONE OF BUTLER'S LIES.
The editor of the. Atlanta (Ga.)
New Era, in noticing tho boast of
Beast Butler, that when in New
Orleans it was an cvery-day occur
rence fur women, splendidly dress
ed in silks and satins, to come into
his office, and ask favors on their
bended knees, 6ays:
"We arc tolerably well posted iri
the history of Benjamin during his
eventful sojourn in New Orleans,
and without the least feeling of an
ger or resentment, wc pronounce
his statements, in tho above ex
tract, a palpable fabrication. . ' '
"No woman in New Orleans, or
in any part of tho State of Louisi
ana, ever bent the suppliant knee'
to hini, or any of his, military . or
civil attaches. While acting th
part of Major-General in the Cres
cent City, Benjamin was not recog
nized as a gentleman, which caused
him to do and say a great , many
very naughty things. Parties could
however, at all times,obtain releas
es and othei favors without bowing
the knee, for it is a most notable
fact that nothing but the dubi' or
spoons was ever roquired as a, com
pensation for outside favors.'' . ;
