Several ladles and gentlemen received
an invitation, one forenoon, from a resident
of the place, to come to his house and de
cide upon the merits of a picture which
had just arrived from Europe, painted by
an American artist Mr. Livingston Am
ory. Leonora and Mr. bomerton were a
mong the invited. Standing with many
others before the picture, they gazea at it
in silence till Leonora turned ' away wih
tears streaming from " her ' eyes. ; It repre
sented Cleopatra parting from Anthony.-
Among all the admiring remarks made up
on the picture, there whs but one - tnai
would nave satisfied an artist, When
Somerton asked in a 'low tone, why tho
picture so-distressed hcr.'she replied; .
'I torgot it was a picture
Is Cleopatra so great a favorite with you;
that you weep over her sorrows? - .
'Cleopatra's grief is so expressed in that
painting that I cannot help feeling with her.
Why did I never pity her betorel'
On the- wav homo, Leonora and Mr.
Somerton wandered in the summer twi
light, quite out of the town, and iu a pleas
ant green lane, up yhich the glowing
evening star shone, thevows they exchang
ed were heard by no one- but them
selves. - v .' - . '
That evening after tea, the merits of the
picture were still further discussed ana
some remark made concerning the speedy
return of the artist to his native land.
Leonora had entirely forgotten the kiss she
promised this artist, though she still wore
as a seal tho stone he had given her. It
was in its original state, except' that the
large end it was polished sufficiently to re
ceive her initials in a pretty lozenge. A
band of gold . around it and ' three small
goW chains attaching lttoherwatoh-guara,
made it one of' the very, prettiest of those
little toys which ladies call their 'charms.'
About a week after the visit to tue pic
ture, a rumor was circulated through the
ball room, that Mr. Amory would arrive,
or had arrived in Newport, that very even
ing, ' While Leonora was leaning on the
arm of Mr. Somertorr. she expressed a
strong wish to - Bee the arttst who had

d her a note. "
Astonished at its arrival at such a time,
she drew bet lover to a window recess, near
which lights wereplaced, and entirely un
conscious of hi closely watchful eyes, she
proceeded to open and read . the following
note: " -..- .. " -i- ', " .

notwithstanding its beautiful setting, he
knew to be the one of so great importance
to him. As you doubtless remember the
bargain, and cannot wish to avoid paying
so just a debt, he will find some opportuni
ty this evening of receiving his dues.'.
Indignant amazement flushed Leonora s
brow and turning to Mr. Somerton, ehe
would hastily have handed the note to him,
bad she not been struck by the keenness of
his glance.. It looked like distrust, and she
dispised the feeling. Haughtily withdraw
ing her half extended hand Containing the
note; she requested, her lover to lead her
from the room, and left him at the foot of
the staircase without a word;.
- In ber own room she reflected upon her
present position. The promise was vivid
ly revealed to her . mind, and honesty de
manded just payment of the. debt she' had
incurred. " Kevertheless.it could not be
done, it was an 1 impossibility. - Besides,
should she overcome her .own, reluctance,
ought she not tell Mr. Somerton. all about
it, and would not this occasion a quarrel?
She determined to find some mode of elud
ing the penalty, and finally wrote the fol
lowing note, sending it to Mr. Amory with
the pelble by the waiter who had brought
nis to ner. : . . -
I return the stone,' which I find too
costly for ma to nurohase. : Tho nricavou
asked was a trifle at the time. Was it gen
erous to demand it now, when circumstan

In ten minutes'en answer was returned,
accompanied by the stone. " .
'Kcturn me whotwas mine, precisely as
it was when you received it or I claim the
payment of the debt, and should you re
fuse to see me this evening, one half hour
from now, in the arbor, I will remind yon
of your promiso, when perhaps its fulhll
ment would not be so agreeable as I should
now try to make it...,...,.. ;
'Despicable creature,' cried Leonora,
despairingly, then., with sudden resolve
throwing .around her a white crape shawl,
she hastened to the ball room, and found
her lover awaiting , her at the door. He
glanced uneasily at her pale face, and whis
pered . - ... . - .

Bonding that he might catch every
word, ho heard frem ' Leonora the whole
story, - and then promised . the blushing,
trembling girl that if she chose, he would
be present, yet not interfere with the ac
complishment of what her conscience rep
resented as a duty. -
She thanked lim gratefully, and they
proceeded at once to the arbor, as it want
ed but a few minutes . of the ' appointed
time. . Arrived there,' Leonora began to 1
have serious fears - for ier lover,, should
tho dreaded artist be in an angry mood.
'Only do one thing more for mo,' she
pleaded. Stand behind the grape vine.
Come if I call, but for my sake keep quiet
if I do not.' :
Somerton promised, and before . with
drawing her hold upon his arm; Leonora
leaned her bead against it, and pressed fer
vently that beloved protection, somerton
being concealed, . five minutes of themo6t
disagreeable suspense followed. Then steps
were heard . approaching, and a man mut
flod in a cloak, so that his face even was
concealed, stood before Leonora.
'She gazed fearfully at the tall appara
tion, and asked in an almost inaudible
voice , ..
Are you Mr. .Amory?
I am ready to redeem my deeply la

terror and distress, feeling herself fainting,
she gaRped Mr. Somorton's name, as her
eyes closed, and instantly felt herself fold

loved called her bv every endearing name,
and she felt that the hated fulfilment of her
promise was not demanded of her. , Slowly
recovering, sho looked anxiously around
for the artist. The cloak was enfolding

other celebrities.. It is as free with the
women as rouge or prepared chalk, and
talks to young girls with the greatest free
dom and consequence.' Tho missionary
field is its especial care; all the neighbors
are drummed up to come "forward" aid a
benevolent "obiick." Some of the neigh

in small amounts the large contributors

small ones are content with having done
their duty. The same hypocrisy we have
seen severely prayerful on Sunday and on

on 1st September, proximo, for the third

one asked him of' what materia they had
manutactured so many votes, to which he
very promptly replied, 'out o'raal good

o' the matter till it samed nicisnary." the
fellow had not been well drilled in the art
of keeping the secret, and I think from
the expression of - many of our citizens
who heard the vulgar and disgusting boast
by a foreigner, that the cause of Know

thereby. Where Is there a man for wo

boil over at the witnessing of such insult

raked up, leavirg a portion slicking in the
grass. Ia the spring this was the earliest
green spot and continued to be the sweet- i

titers to feed. By and by one of them died,
then another and another though appar- i
entlyfatand healthy. Then one waso-
pened to ascertain ue cause of death, and
afterward other for curiosity. In the
stomachs of those that had fed most upon
this hair-matrured spot, were found two or
three dozen hair balls; such as we used to
be told when ahoy were "witch balls."

of this city has invented i useful and very
lngeniwun printing press ior the printing
of four different colors simultaneously;
We went to bis room the other day and
examined a neatly constructed brass model
of this press, which is indeed a perfect
beauty to look at and a curiosity to see in
operation. The inking apparatus and the
general principles of the macbin) are so
arranged that four colors can be printed at
one impression, at ice rate of about 600
impressions in an hour. And not only
can different lines and letters be printed in
various hues, bnt so perfect ia the inven
tion that one letter, maybe printed in two,
three or four colors: or printed in one co
lor and shaded by another, all whh the
same impression. - "
Its construction is very simple, there be
ing less of complication about it than we
find ia other large printing pretses now in
use. , .
Mr. Brows is a practical printer, and has
spent considerable time and labor in the get
ling up of this new press. He intends to
make application for a patent immediately.
i Dai his laoorana ingenuity will be reward
ed as they deserve to be, we have no doubt.

to ashes, ashea are lixivated, lye is the re
sult. Lye is evaporated by boiling, black
salts are the residuum. The salts undergo
a purification by fire, and the potash of com
merce is obtained. By another process,
we change potash into pearlash. Now put
this into sacks and place them over a distil
lery wash-tub, where the fermentation
evolves carbonic acid gas, and the pearlash
absorbs and renders it solid, the product
being leavier, drier, and whiter than the
pearlash. It is now salaratus. How much
salts, lye and carbonic acid can a human
stomach bear and remain healthy, is a ques
tion for the salaratus eaters.-ifaif. Sxn.
