Or, how Jonas Jenks was Astonished.
BT IXCT LIXWO0D.
The hero of our sketch we will call Jonas Jenks.
A ratural feeling cf sympathy forbids our using
his real name : and as he is an extremely sensitive
oM gentleman, he might not care to be made a
subject of merriment for our re aders.
Jonas Jonks was what all the world would call
a clever fellow," but beyond that, his good
qualities were few. He was looked upon with the
same feeling that you would regard the s ump of
an old tree, that neither bore leaves to shade you
in the summer, nor fruit to paj for its keeping
through the w inter. He was styled nkher wise.
usef.il, nor agreeable. He was not agreeable be
cause he did not make himself entcriaining to the
ladies.- He was not useful, for he ntver leoked
beyond Ids immediate personal wants : and he
showed great lack of wisdom in living forty years
alone when he might have been blessed with
God's best gift to man" woman.. He did not
acquire wealth, because it needed two heads like
his to make money and take care of it. lie was

" "What makes you think anything ails rce ?"
gvufny replied the bachelor. .
- Because you are not lively and happy. You
are lonely and want society. No one can enjoy
life -without some friends. In short, you wan a
xeift ; and my advice to you is to get married.
' Ah, that is a very good advice, my friend :
but I have got along these forty years without a
wife, and I guess I shall have to finish out the
rest in the same way,"
" Because you have been a fool forty years is
no reason why you must be a greater cne for the
next forty, or as many as you may live, which, I
think, is quite as likely to be sixty."
: " Hem ! well : (jesting side) I do Idive if I
had taken a wife twenty ycare ago, I should have
been quite as well for it now ; but who would
think of marrying an old fashioned man with the
wrinkles on his cheeks of forty winters V
"0, that is nothing against you. Thereis
many a smart damsel who would jump at the
chance to sign herself Mrs. Jenks." ..
" I don't want an old maid any how ! If I
rer do got a wife, I will go out of the fiunily for
j her. If I ccwld cage seme sprightly loss of ctfth-
teen or twenty, I do not know bnt I might be
tempted. "But this courting business-1 know
nothing about, you see. I could not think of put
ting on a dickey every Sunday night and sitting
up straight till midnight. TNo, no. That would
be paying too dearlj' for a tiling in advance."
" AVcll, Jonas, I think on the whole that 'yew
are too lazy to live, if the truth was known."
said Otis, as he tumid on his heels to go.
' You do, eh ? Well, stop a moment. I am
up for a Iwirgain.' Come show me one of the.e
nice girls who you seem to think arc so plenty."
"Go and find them' for yourself, as other men
do. If you are pleased to visit my family, you
will have the opportrnity of seeing a great manv
j young-ladies. VTc have a great d al of company.
I will, introduce you to my sister, for one, and

; than he had ever Lad occasion for before in his j
j life, he was arnuel aud equipped at half past s-ev- I
j en o'clock, and on his way to his friend, Otis
Barker. . j
j rortunatcly fjrhis diiUdcncc and awkwardness j
in company, there were ne.nc but the members of j
i the family present, and he was intrceluced to i
! Mrs. and Miss Uarkcr, and enjoyed a very pleas j
'ant cliat wish ;Ltm during the tttnirg. Everv

She was jnst the model, just the stj le of beau

Jonas, as he bade them "good i:ight," at ten,

springing across the gutters with the acilitj- of a '
lark" but no one saw Jonas return to his lone-
some home. He was blessed with pleasant j
dreams for the two succeeding nights, and on the
third evening he cgiin feaind himself in the scci
e'j-of his admired. At the close ef his second
visit, he went horr.c even happier than from the
firt: for in aelditicn to his increasing admiin.1
tion of the lady Miss Barker he felt assured
I by her evident exertions to entertain him pleas
! an'Iy, that his feeling were reciprocated. Mrs.
i Barker was no less attentive, and he could not
but believe that his motives were antic.pateel
with pleasure to all concerned-
One unfortunate circumstance, -however, to
which panics were as 3-ct strangers must be
named before going farther with the courtship
Owing j artly to Mr. Barker's carelessness in in
troducing the ladies as his wife and sister, mere
I3-: and par:ly to the bachelor's confusion in
confronting two women at a time, he had most
unwittingly mistaken one for the other! As
there appeared to la but little difference in their
ages, and each seemed alike at home and familiar
with the husband and brother, it would have
been no easy matter for a strap ger, at first ac
quaint ance, to distinguish betw een them. They
had the habit, too, of addressing each other by
their Christian names, and the titles cf Mrs. and
Miss were not used for once in his presence.
Th truth was, Jonas had been deeply smitten
with Mrs. Barker, wW w-as rather the prettiest
of the two, and who. not susrr in? the bachc- j
lor's error, strove with unusual interest to make
matters agreeable in behalf of her sister in law.
"Week after week j asscd away, during which j
time Jonas performed penance for his past ncgli- j
gence by " dressing up" every Sunday night, and
endeavoring to make himself agreeable to the la-
dies : and whin two ir.ontns naa eiap.siu, nej uau :
formed a " never to be got over" attachment to
I: was a cruel deception, but no one to blame, j
for no one knew of it. Mrs. Barker noticed that
he of.en addressed her as Miss B., but know ing
him to be rather illiterate, and unskilled in the
rules of etiquette, she thought it might be a slip j
of the tongue merely, and considirtd it unlady- ;
like to correct him. , j
Jonas began to feel that suspense was unplea
sant, and set his wits at work to frame a propo
sal to his lady love. At every previous visit, it
had happened that the family were all present. :
and no opportunity had presented when he might j
" free his mind." !
This last time, however, he was more fortu
nate. Mrs. Barker was alcne, and informed him
that Otis and sister had gone out to make a call,
but would scon return. Jonas did express much
sorrow at their absence, but smiled pleasantly as
he seated himself very near Mis. Uarkcr, and re
marked that the had bo feult to find with his
: Now was his time, he thought, but how was
it to be elone ? At iirst, lie thought best to open
the subject abruptly, and have it over at. once :

leaned aga'nst the wall, 1 oking like a ntaninj )
and at his friend Jenes, who sat en'the edtteje f
his chair, hi s hands upon his knees and his nuf'h

" That jour wife !" screamed Jonas. ""Why!

" No one has de-eteiveel vou. If re;u have de

That is my wife-! 27i's is 1113- iser," pointing
to the lady who had just entered.
: Yes," said Mrs. B. " You have made a slight ;
mistake, that is all. But no matter now, it is ,
explained in season." ' j
Jonas was struck elumb! He rose, seized his
hat, inaele a low bow, and very shortly annihila ;
ed the space Ix-twccn the Barkers and his "bach- ;

It was not man3 moments bef rc he sat b' a I

Of what he thought, said or elid, afer tha' j
time, we can give no account : fjr he was the
same old bachelor as bef ire living alone, eating ;
alcne sleeping alone, and keeping all his score's ;
within his o n premisis : but as Mrs. Barker,
