- Tho proud and wealthy James Agmoor,
Bilk and velvet merchant of Uroadway,
New York, was just entering his superb

saluted him, and sinned to puss out

seated himself near him, facing him, and
having ibe office tables between them.
,vYou have considered tuy propsitions

'soft voice,, sleek and silky as .the preci
ous fabrics that were about thorn.
James Atrmoor buried his face in his
- hands for a moment, and then sweeping
back his sn6w White hair, said, huskily:
ryl;liave, Uirra ' Would, I have!" and
s, W hlce, 6 aiid rod ' by tains, again
sought the cover of bis trembling hands.
"I have told my daughter that you
demanded her for a wife, i She told me to!

blow was dealt in sell-del'onco that killed
Charles H.rper. And so it was, Hiram
Mould; you know it was."
Wore we in court, I th only witness
of the act, James Agmoor, 1 would swear
that it was premedita'.ed mur.lor.'' i
James 1 Amoor's ejes eloped ', with i
shudder, and again the trembling bands
hid his pallid face. ': : .! n , . i.
! UI would swear," resumed Hiram
Mould,' s his sharp, white teeth bristled
from his sneering lips, ' "and the jury
would believe every word, that one sum

"All false!'' cried tho merchant arous

Hiram Mould, hid the body where you can

that the finger of suspicion should not

While the tortued man was saying an
this, far more incoherently than we have
written it, tho iinmove.d conspirator hart
rapidly sketched a picture of a giboted

Hiram Mould placed tho insignificant
ekotcli before him. ' '

(Sumoer, on Everett's Chance.
Inhis Worcester spoech, Mr. Sumner
made the following humorous estimate of
Mr. Everett's chances for tho Presidency:
This party next turning to tbe Vice
Presidency) assumes thirdly that Mr. Ev
erett will be one of the two highest candi
dates for the Vice Presidency, and fourth
ly, that Mr. Jiverett will be electod by
theSonate Vice President, and then will
become President like John Tyler and
Millard Fillmore not through the doath
of a President, but through , (he double
failure by the people and by the House.
Such is. the calculation by which this
band of professed conservatives seek to
give repose to the country. Permit me
to say that it is only equaled by the ex
travagance of Mrs. foodies, in the farce,
whose passion was to purchase ancient ar
tioles of furniture at auction, under the
idea tbal they might 6orae day bo useful.
Once, to tho nmezcmsnt of her husband,
she brought home a bras, door-plate with
tha namo of Thompson spelled with a P.
"But what is this for?" he' demanded.
"Why," said Mrs. Toodlcs, with a logic
worthy of '.he Bell party, "though we
have been married many years without
children, it is possiblo my .dear that we
mav have a child: that child .may bo a
daughter aud may live to the ago of ma
turity and she mav marry a man of the
name of Thompson spelled with aT. Then
how bandly it will be to have this door
plate in the houso!" I doubt if any per

THE l'HMTE. .
Iwentv-seven years ago 1)0 ship I !
cummaoaau was on ft mission of mercy.
Laden by the generous contribution of a
New England oily, she was bound to the
tape do Verd with bread for the fauiiue
stricken and dy.ng.
It Was the fourteenth day out, in the
gray of the morning, tht tho mate roused
mo wiih the sturlling iotelligtnee that a'nroBBion in fnvor of Renubiican mincit.lea.
suspioious vesBol was in sight. With the I
first ray of light, the vigilant officer had
desoribed her. and she was so near . tn
be made out with a glass. ! I was on deck
in an instant. ' ' '
The first glance at tho stra.ig.-r almost; VVe have elected our stale tickot by at 1,10 cri(I delights which a rUial rcsi
dispelled the fear thai : the mate's alarm 'least Iwenlu thmmnd m-im-il. We have !dc?ce CR" k',v9 ,0 mlBd nhih eoOB'itu-
had occasioned. ' 1 '
"Why, Mr. Larkin," I said, laughing
as J. Spoke, "there's nothing suspicious in I
that lubberly-looking craft. She is a
tugaes brigantine; she oan't aif."
"Sho lookrf like that build," the mate
anwerejr "but look now at ihe-inea on
her deck." : ,
One glance of the telescope was enough
to satisfy me '.hat the mate was right.
"It's no honest craft, Mr. Larkin," I
said; "but she may not be a pirate, for all
that. One need not be surprised to tail
in with a slaver hereabouts."
"She's no slaver, captain.''
"Why do you think?'' '' '
"Because there arc guns on hor deck,
instead of wster-caHks." - 11 !
As if to put an end to Our speculations,
the suspioious vessel began to spread more
canvas, and as she gathered away tbe
freshening breeze, they ran up to her fore
mast flag wbich, when it reached the
truck, un shook its folds in the wind. On
the white field we saw the terrible insig
na of the freebooter, the death's head and
cross bones, painted io diabolical black.
We made all the sale we Ooulc, but es-
capo was impossible. : A gun from the pi
rate, and 1 ball whistled over us, upeedily
brought us to. - The pirate came quickly
along, like a panther which, sure of hje
prey, was in no great nurry to soize 11.
The moment he came within .peaking
distanco he hailed, buu oiderea
launch a boat and come on . board. W
got out the quarter boat, and I was about
to jump into liar, to pay my respects to
the villains, when Mr. Larkin asked leave
to go. ,; I ,.,-..
"If they want Ihe captain," , said he,
"let them ssnd for him, I'll seo if the
mate woo't answer as well."
Ho descended into tbe boat, which be
gan to pull back. Almost at tho same in-,
slant a launch was swung over the Tail,
into which twouty savago looking rascals,
armed to the teeth, sprang, and pulled to
ward us.; Ten minutes afterward they
were on board of my vessel, and began
clearing away the main hatch, '
The leader, a swarthy follow, whose
square, oompaot frame, - and whose eyes,
black and hazy, ana nan concealed uy tne
lids, expressed cruslty and cunning, ap
proached the cabin hatch, where bo stood
and and addressed me io very fair Eng
lish. "Are you the captain of this vessel?"
."Yes," I leplied. ,
"Whal's your cargo?"
"Capo de Verdo."
"Wbv. they're all starving there," he
said, oncnincr his eves and looking full at
"Yes, and the flour in my vessel was
freo'.y givon by good Christians to feed
these s'arving people."
Tho rascal continued bis deliberate gaze
a moment, then turned toward his mru,
who had by this lime broken into the main
haich, and, in a rough, commanding tone,
spoko a few words in Spanish, wliioh I
could not make out. The men looked up
in astonishment, and then w'uhdrow to
tho side, where they stood gazing cautious
ly towards their eitptaiu, lor such urns my
interrogator. Ho thrust hw hand behind
him, and walked to and fro quickly for
five minutes; thon lib said, sharply, turn
ing to mc:
"You Americans are all heretics! Why
should you send flour to feed Roman Cath
olics?" . '
"Because they nre our fellow men, and
their Saviour is our Saviour," I nnswerod,
astonished at the conduct of tho man.
"If you he to me," ho cried, with a
fierceness that siartled mo, "if you lie to
I'll nnil you to your deck! Is this
cargo the free gift of your countrymen to

Tho pirate lifted his cap and bent his
head devoullv when I mentioned the Trin
ity. He stood still, with his head bent
over while ono might have moderately
counted fifty. Whim ho raised himself up,
it seemed to mo there was less ferocity in
his countenance. His eyes were no lon
ger half cloned, but opon and clear in their
depths. I looked steadily at him.

sent his cut throats over the sido; but he
lingered bohind, and afier a momont's hes

felt my grasp, 'ar.d sond- you whero the

He was two years old. ' She had a small

Almost a Tragedy Attempt to Asaat.ii.
ate a Yonng Lady by a Rejected Suitor. -A
young lady living in Wythe 'avenue, '
Brooklyn, bad a narrow escape from be
ingtthot on Tuesday evening last, as she :
was sitting on tbs sofa in her father's
bouse. Her young brother was sitting'
beside her, with his arm thrown over her .'
shoulder, and no other person was in ths
room, lhey were sunaeniy sttrtiea oy
ths report of a pistol, ju.t outside ths -
house, and a ball came Clashing through ,
the window and whistling but a few in
ches over tho young lady'i head. Ths
brother ran to tho window, at which there
was a thin lace-curtain; but looking out
he could not preceive any person. It is
supposed that lha shot was fired at tba
young lady or her brother by a lover of
the lady. On Sunday evening last they
had a "lover's quarrel." and parted on
unfriendly terms. ' Tbe cause of tbe quar
rel was a letter that be bad seen ber read
ing, wbich he thought was written by a ,
young man in Connecticut, of whom he
professed to be jealous, but which, in re
ality, cams from her brother, who was at '
Princeton College. To torment her lover
she would not undeceive him, and hs
left that evening very sulkily, . under ths
impression that he had a favored rival.
It is supposed that he indistinctly saw
the young lady and her brother, and sup- ,
posed tt to be the Yankee rival, who was
expected here to take part in the Wids- ,'
Awake procession on Wednesday night,
that he became enraged thereat and fired,
scarcely thinking of the consequences.
But most fortunately the shot aimed too
high, and passed over the lady's head.
The young man, tbs lady's lover, was
made aware of the recurrence, and per
sists in stoutly denying having been guil- '
ty of any such oowardly attack. The uiat--ter,
however, may come up before the
police, but has not yet. and for obvious;
