'Why so sad, Earnest? said a young
wife to her husband, affectionately twin
ing her arm around his neck, and kissing
lie looked up with a smile and replied:
'I am almost out of heart, Mary. I think
of all pursuits, a physician's profession is
the worst. Here I .have been, week after
week, month after month, and I may soon
say year after year, waiting for practice,
yet without success. A lawyer may vol
unteer in a celabratod case, and so make
himself known; but a physician must sit
patiently in his offico, and, if unknown, see
men of half hO acquirements rolling in
wealth, while ha peihaps is starving. And
it will soon come to that,' added he bitter
ly, 'if I do not get employment.' "
An unbiddod tear stole into his wife's
eye, but she strove to smile as Bhe said:
'Po not despond, Earnest. I know you
have talents and learning to make your
way as soon as you get a start; and depend
upon it.' she said with a cheerful look,
'that will come when you least expect it.'
'So you have told me, often told me, but
the. lucky hour has never come,' said he
husband desporidingly. 'And how every
cent of our littje fortune has been expended
'and our credit will soon be gone, when it
is found we do not pay.."'. What then is to
become ofus?' .-:-.
' Earnest was in a mood that the sanguine
sometimes experience when disappoint
ment after disappointment has crushed the
spirit, and tho voice of hope is no longer
heard within. His wife would have given
way to tears if the had been alone; but she
felt the necessity of sustaining him and an
swered cheerfully ; v
' . 'And what if every cent is gone? Have
AO fear that we shall starve. God sent
ravens to Elijah, and he will yet interpose
for your aid. Trust in him, dear Earnest.'
The husband felt rebuked as she thus
spoke, and answered less despondingly:
'ut realy, Mary, this want ot success
would try the stoutest spirit. .' The me
chanic, the day laborer, the humblest far
' mer, is sure of his food and raiment; but I
hare spent years in study, have waisted
i years besides waiting for practice, and now,
.when all my fortune is gone, if I resort to
other means of livelihood, I lose all that I
' have spent," both time and money, and
must forever abandon my profession. It
is too hard! and ho arose and walked the
room with rapid strides."
His wife sighed and remaind silent.
.; But after a moment or two,' sue arose,

As if her words bad been prophetic, the
little girl, their only servant, . appeared
at this crisis and said that the doctor was
wanted in a trreat hurry. With an exult-
. ing smile, his wife ran for his hat, and then
sat down with a beating heart to await his
It was. almost tho first summons the
young physician had received, though- he
had resided in the village more than a year.
. The place, too, was large and populous.but
medical men of large practice resided there,
and all these combined to put down their
rival. More than once, heretofore, Earn
! est would have abandoned the .field in de-
;j spahy but his young wife cheered and en
. eouraged him though sometimes her own

Honr afterhonrshesat thwe awaiting
her husband, yet still he came not. At
length darkness set in. And she began to
feel uneasy. She was about to go to the
door, when she heard her husband's feet
on the step, and hurrying out. she met him
in the hall. '.,
'God bless you," Mary, an angel as you
are,' were his first words, .'If ,t had not
been for you, I should have given up long
ago, and now my fortune ia made.' - -
Breathless wfth anxiety to hear all, yet
not unmindful of his probable wearied con
dition, Mary hurried her husband into her
little sitting room, where the tea thinjrs were
laid, and began to pour ost the refreshing
beverage with a ' trembling hand, while
Earnest told the story of his day's absence.
'I found,' said he, '1 was sent tor by old
Gov. Houston the richest and most influ
ential man; you know, in the county and
when I got there, I learned.to my surprise,
that the Governor had been thrown from
his carriage and was thought to be dying.
All the physicians of the town had been
sent for, one after another, but none could
aid him. . In despair his wife, without or
ders, had sent for me. I 6aw his only
chance depended on a new and difficult
operation which none of the other physi
cians had ever performed. Luckily I had
assisted at one when a student. I stated
what I thought could be done. The old
Governor is a man of iron nerve and quick
resolutions; so, when he heard the others
say tboy could do nothing for him, he de
termined to commit himself to me. I suc
ceeded beyond my hope; even the other
physicians acknowledged my skill; and
there now nothing but care required to
make my patient as well as -ever. On
parting he put a roll of notes into my hand.'
Mary was in tears long before ber bus
band had finished his narrative; but her
heart went in thankfulness to God for hav
ing interposed just at the crisis when hope
seemed gone. . ...
if rom that day Earnest Lmwood was a
made man. The fame of his skillful ope
ration was in every man's mouth, .and by
the aid of his patient, who now became his
patron, he stepped at once into practice a
raong the best families of the place. Wealth
as well as reputation flowed in upon him;
but lie always attributed bis success to his
wife, whose affection, he said, had cheered
and sustained him when out of heart.
'There was nothinrr,' he would say, 'like
a faithful wife, under God, our weal or woe
for this life depends on her. . If she is de
sponding your sanguine spirit catches the
infection; but if she is full of hope and en
ergy, her smiles will cheer you in the
darkest hours, and enable you to achieve
what you tint thought to be impossibilities.
uur success in this world, as well as our
happiness, depends chiefly on our wives.
Let a man marry one, therefore, 'suited to
either fortune,' who can adorn his riches or
brighten his property; and who Wider all
circumstances will ha his .helpmate. ;
Important Burglary. We are in
formed by Wm. Flannigan that on last
night about 10 o'clock, three burglars
forced their way into the dwelling house of
John Abemathy, . near Adelphia in . this
county, and after gagging and binding him
hand and foot in his bed and securing the
silence of his wife and a young widow la
dy named Strauser, who lived with them,
by threats of instant death in case they
raised the alarm, tuey proceeded to give
the house a thorough search. :.. . r
Mr. Abemathy is a wealthy man and
has been in tho habit of keeping consider
able money about the house. The rob
bers got everything of value, but Mr, A
cannot even approximate the amount of his
loss.' Mrs. Struser lost one hundred dol
lars in money, and a certificate of deposite
in the Valley Bank fortwo hundred dollars,
which wo nope the thieves will present tor
payment. No clue to the perpetrators of
this high handed act has been obtained.
The family can give no description of them
that can be relied upon. ChiUicotheMetrop'

when it happens as is most commonly , tho

Biography o thi Anokl Gabriel.
In as muchasitis customary to give bi
ographies of "distinguished persons," the
New ' York Sunday Courier furnishes a
correct aocount of the life of the itinerant
strcet-preaoher, who has been "kicking up
a muss" in all the Atlantic cities. The ed
itor aays that he knows him wll that he is
a Scotchman by birth and is now forty-five
years of age. His trhe name is MeSwish,
although he goes by the appelationof Orr,
which was that of bis atep father. His
first appearance before the public was in a
troupe of equestrians,- and attracted atten
tion by hisgronnd and lofty tumbling.
Having quarreled with the manager, he
gave his parents the slip, and joined aom
panyof acrobats, with whom he visited
some of the principal towns of England,
and at lastat Liverpool, where he fell in love
with the daughter tif the proprietor of a
'wine and spirit vault,,' near the Prince's
Dock; He eloped with her and was mar
ried in Wales, where " be became a local
preacher of the Methodist' persuasion, in
the village of Llangffd.
Growing tired of his rural position, and
having brought on a fit of dyspepsia by eat
ing too heartily of Welsh rabbits, he disap
pcared one night, leaving a few debts be
hind him as tokens of his affections, anions-
his parishioners, and taking with him, by
way of remembrance the pewter tankard,
which had been employed in the church
He made his way for the nearest' sea
port; which was Bristol, where he shipped
as cook on board a vessel bound for Jamai
ca, and on his arrival in that island he a
gain assumed the functions of a preacher;
but finding that the Baptist persuasion was
more popular than the Methodist, be joined
that sect. " '
How long he remained in Jamaica is not
known, but probably nollong.for he taught
a dancing school in the town of McGraws
ville a few years ago, after which he be
came a convert to Mormanism; but when
Joe Smith went to Illinois, be turned his
face toward the Atlantic Slates, and, after
having been by turns check-taker at a cir
cus, and assistant in a menagerie, a tern
peranco lecturer, a tin peddler, and editor
of a Nativist paper in Philadelphia he
ibund himself in New York with just mon
ey enough in las pocket to purchase a
brass trumpet and with this for bis stock
in trade he commenced the Angel Gabriel
line of business, which has proved so high
ly profitable and made his name so fam
ous. . ;; ." . :

The Albany Journal, says that Nonin-
rop was at Sandy Hill, N. Y., in compa
ny with H. B. Northrop, ofWashington
through whose agency he was rescued
from slavery and as soon as oolomon
Northrop saw a man named Merrill, he
exclaimed "that is the man."
Merrill was arrested at his mother's at
Wood Hollow. Henry B. Northrop has
spent a great deal of time and money in
femttng out the scoundrel, and they have
no doubt got the man. Solomon identifies
him without a doubt. Merrill has long
been regarded as a desperate fallow. They
found him asleep, with a heavy bowie knife
and a brace of pistols on the floor by his
side. The arrest has caused great excite
ment ' , . . - '
An accomplice has also been arrested as
appears by the following: " 7 '
Albany, July 10. J. L. Russell, cap
tain of the canal-boat J. F. Croin, of the
Rochester City Line, was arrested here
this morning, charged with being an ac
complice of Merrill in kidnapping Solomon
Northrop. He admitted that he was at
the Inaugural in Washington in 1841.
He was ironed and taken to Balston Spa

Kansas. Mr. Abelard Guthrie, a Ben

ritory to a member of Congress, that Sen
ator Atchison is urging the slavery propa
gandists to hurry forward to take early
possession of the most desirable locations.
These appeals, he says have been circulated
secretly, and the pro-slavery men are swarm
ing over the country, before those who are
not in the confidence of the government
can know what is going; on there. He
charges the Indian Department at Wash

River and Harbor Appropriation Bill
Passed One House. The bill has passed
the House, but even should it get through
the Senate, we fear the veto of the weak
tool at the head of the Government The
temper of the Administration may be judg
ed from the following:
When the River and Harbor Appropri
ation bill was-up in tho House, Mr. Barks
dale, of Mississippi, took the floor, and de
clared it to be the unalterable purpose of
the Administration to set its face against
any such measure. Mr. Yates, of Illinois,
asked him whether he spoke for himself or
for the Admimstration.and be unequivocal
ly declared that he spoke for the latter and
for the party.. . subsequently. Mr. barks
dale moved an amendment to the bill, pro
viding that it shall not go into effect until it
has been approved by the Secretary of War!
This is supposed, to beanother 'vindication
of the great principle of popular sovereign
ty.' Not only theU'resident shall possess
the power to nullify the will of the people
as expressed through their representatives,
but a cabinet officer, appointed by the
Executive, chosen in no sense by the peo
ple, and not responsible ' to them, must
also say aye, and sign his approval ere ap-1
proprialions for needed improvements of
great harbors or rivers can he made!
This is a species of 'Democracy! which
will hardly be . appreciated upon the
lake shores, and the great rivers of the
West." . . .
"The Effects ot the Administration
in New Hampshire." The Concord He-
porter, the organ of the Burke faction of the
Democratic party, says:
"Never have we heard of such direct
and open interference on the part of the
National government, nor such gross and
palpable corruption, as has been manifest
ed in this city since the commencement of
the present session of the Legislature.
And what a state ot things is here exhibit
ed! The President and Cabinet at Wash
ington not only attempted to dictate to the
people of this State whom they shall elect
as Senators to represent them in Congress,
but it sends on its agents to influence the
result, and carry out its behests, charged,
it is believed, with the means of corrupting
the members of the Legislature. Govern

laid on a Sat table, and rubbed over With a

quantity of mercury is then poured over it,

Signification or Iowa and other Indian
Names. Mr Le Claire, of Davenport o

cation given by Senator Dodge, which is
"none such," as well as Washington Irving
or some romantic writer, who represents
an Indian on a high Illinois bluff, over
looking Iowa, Intu, biau'.iful, beautiful. ;
The idea conveyed by Mr. Le Claire, is that
of a place of retreat or happy refuge.

child was dead, and that there was no way
to burry it. - Again Mr. Willard respond

woman herself was ill, and upon visiting
the house it was found that the woman her
self was in a dying condition, with a child
clasped to her breast, and on her person

Toe CrNciNBAnM ail. Notwithstanding
the citizens of Lancaster . are -within Eve

three days from the time it is D-.aiiod." It
was generally believed tfcat the construc
tion of the C. Vf .it Z. Rail Road would
benefit all classes of citizens; but farther
than the transportation of goods nd pas
sengers are interested the route is perfectly
useless, and the people along this Lne here
just reasons to complain of the ill provision
of mail facilities. Instead of sendirg the
mails by the ears, whereby corre?por dents
may obtain their letters and pj.'re in o
few court, there is a one horse tri-wectij
mail trudging along at a snail's. pace and
very frequently leaving part of the mail f;r
teveral days at intermediate poinf. Tor
our part we are heartily sick of this mode of
doing business, and sooner than be imposed
apon, would prefer seeing the. whole mail
arrangement between this city and Cin
cinnati suspended or abolished.. In con
sequence of the facility and Ejeed of deliv
ery on railroad routes, Govenment ebould
be willing to pay a corresponding price for
its transportation, inasmuch as it is well
known that railroads double the amount of
business and correspondence. , V - .
