Romance of Real Life.
The Baltimore papers state that
the Governor cf Maryland had gran
ted a frse pardon to James L. Hawk
ins, whoa cashier of the "Franklin
li.mk of Baltimore, embezzled a large
r- I
years since. The annoum-emem of t
ibis pardon uromifti the Hultimore I
uoru-yponJeol of the li.-fton Atlas
to r'alate the foll.twiug. Ye know
not how it may affect oih'er,"but this
simple unadorned tiarralive of wor
man' integrity and love; and that
nice sense d honor wJiivh could hide
a stain only by the deep covering of
the grave hr.s touclied our feelings
core than the most .highly wrought
luniance:
His defalcations were large, and
run thruugh a long series ol years.
They were concealed by many inge
nious devices, and were only discov
ered by nccident. during a tempora
ry absence of Hawkins from ihe
Bank. On the discovery of the de
falcation, Hawkins immediately gave
up all iii property of every kind, and
his wile a noble woman, without so
licitation, and even against sojne re
monstrance on the part pf her rela
tive, ciecuted a deed renouncing her
rijiht of dower in a very valuable te
al estnle. They were thus, in -their
old age reduced to poverty, with
the attendant evils of ciime upon too
husband. Those of your readers
who remember the account I wrote
you, will recollect that aa soon as
Mr. Hawkins had executed the deed
renouncing her dower she weht to
her bed, and in a few days pined a
way, literally dying of a broken
heurt.
"Which kill more ti,-u are iitiiulrred in
the lista of fate."
Those wh were present at the sick
bed of this good lady, say that the
scene was the most impressive it is
possible to conceive of. There she
lay, visibly fading away befoie u'1
eyes the physicians stood confound
ed by the rapid progress of t'nti dis
ease, and the eyes of all bathed in
tears while hers were dry' with sor
row. She never even cast a look of
reproach upon her poor guilty hus
band, who stood by, all unmanned;
and when her eye rested upon the
face of her daughter a sweet girl,
then just bursting into womanhood
thejmother would manifest herself on
ly in a deep drawn sigh. Th emi
nent physicians who were culled to
heraid,cwned their weakness, and
shrunk almost nppalled at' the n-wful
manifestations death had made of his
work, upon the woman. They had
seen death in almst every shape.
They had seen it suddeuly striking
down the young and beautiful they
had see-n it wasting slowly, day by
day, the life of some beloved daugh
ter, until at length, after the ravages
of years the light was extinguished,
as a candle burnt to its socket, and
thee shedding forth its rays more bril
liantly than ever, go out in beauty
ihcy had snen tho strong, the aged,
the weak nnd the old die but never
i:r.d they seen a death like this.
The mind of the. dying woman was
nt peace with all the world, beyond
whose portals she had, seemingly,
pjtssed, before death had released her
soul from the body. Health was up
on r er cheeks her pulse lull and
egular, end her voice sweet and me
lodious. She was n woman who had
shone in society she had filled her
place at the head ot an opulent farm
Iv, with a grace which bad won ad
miration from all who knew her.
And there she lay, in form, in face, in
voice unaltered, save that the eye
vhich was indeed, in her, the glass be
fori the heart, showed that death was
tipm h?r. and had already dried up
the fountains of herlile.
But I linger too long upon this re
markable death her death which, un
derail circumstances, of its time and
place, and cause, proves that truth,
indeed, as the master of the human
heart has said, u strange, stranger
than fiction.
Shortly after the death of Mrs
Hawkins, a bill of indictment with
out movement on the part of those
who had lost money bv hira was
mend by our grand jury, and he, then
being out of the city fled the State
His daughter, who as I have said, was
then just bursting into womanhood,
hag now reached the age when
she can full v feel all that she has lost
in such a mother, and to find moving
her, some of that spirit which sent
her mother to the grave. For some
months her friends have observed
strange feeling working upon her.and
at length learned of her, that her young
oeart, which had been taught so ear
ly to dote upon her father, now
yearned to share his sorrows,' and to
desire to soothe his griefs.
Hawkins had been living away off
- in Louisiana, poor, broken in spirit,
and haggard' injappearance. It was
known to all here that he was there.
ftiUf within the reach of the arm of
the law of Maryland, but se deep
and widespread was the regard which
was felt for the wife, nnd so general
thegrieffor her melancholy death,
that no one thought of invoking aid
to approach hint and brjng him here
to punishment. The daughter da-
i termmed to go tit him. it . was in

the sorrows of her lather took posses

ards, and despite of every-danger and

nounces her determination to go to
him. nnd was preparing to do so. It

Under these circumstances, hrr
friends bethought then ol petitioning
the Governor for a pardon for the fa

purpose. Was spcedilv signed by men

shoit, could not foil to move the heart
ol a man and the pardon ioon came.
There is something so peculiar in
this case it has for us, here in C ilti-1
more, f-o strange an interest and -is
withal, so extraordinary; that f have
thought that your readers would like
to read it. 1 have therefore written
it, and would only add, that I do not
envy the feelings ef that man who
count snut n:s r.eart cgainst ttie rp-

be.h'ilfcf this por man.
Hawkins will return to this State,
but not 1. 1 this city. He has been
offered a home by a relative, on a
farm in a retired part of the Stale,
and there, in the sweet society of his
daughter he will pass the remainder
of his davs.
Siiockixis Accu'knt. The Mont
rose (IV) Democrat ttates that on
iWonday evening of last week, Dr. K
Ley man, ol Great Hand, was return
ing from Moutto&e in a .wagon with
his wife, wht-n about three quarters
ofa mile from home, the reins drop
ped upon the shafts; the doctor lean
ed over the dash-board toiecoer
them, when it broke and precipitated
him ngait.st the horse, which took
fright, uud ran for about half a mile.
During this time Mrs. I., remained
in the wagon unhurt, and supposing
that her husband was left behind nt
l!ie place where he had fallen. On a
neighber coming to her assistance,
she expressed fears that her husband
was hurt, when, to the astonislmient
of both, they beheld his mangled bod-
ti!l hanging Jrom the forward
spring in which his foot -was unfortu
niteiy cauuht, and by which menus
he had been drncsed and mansled
until life was extinct. Hisiaw was
perfectly torn off. and his head, shoul
ders, and arms dteadfully bruised
and lacerated. Dr. L. was a highly
respectable citizen, of temperate
habits, in the prime of life, in and suc
cesslul practice in his profession.
Hoosikr Arovmf.nt. "Gentlemen
of the jury,' said a hoosier lawyer,
I ar satisfied of your integrity and
sense of justice, and so ar my client,
and I respect your honesty so much
that if I war as rich as Jacob Astoria
1 scorns to influence you in any man
ner but, I beg to observe in the
most respectable manner possible
without no attention of wound in
your leelins, which ar no doubt as
tender rs a barkpd shin that if vour
yerd.ck is in favor of my client, it ar

the doggery for a drink twice round
(the judge and constable included)
but it yeu ar deal to the voice of law
and honor, jest as soon as the Court
is adjourned, we mean to lick vou
like thunder.
"kissing.
I would'nt give a sous to kiss a
uirl in company, and I always haled
Copenhagen, pawns, and other kiss
ing plays, as I hope I hate jhe devil
They had a shocking custom when 1
was young, that every body at the
wedding should kiss the bride just as
thev all drank, in the same free and
easy way. out of one big china punch
bowl; but the practice always hurt
my sensibilities, and 1 avoided wed
dings as I would a ghost, a bailiff, or
any other fright. No no get your
little charmer up into a coiner by
yourself, watch when everybody's
back is turned 'hen slip your arm
round her w aist, and kiss her with a
long sweet kiss, as it you were a bee
sucking honey from a flower.
Nor can one kiss every girl.. I'd

the bitters out of his mouth lorn

lips, that seem to challenge every
body so saucily, egad! when we kiss
such at our leisure, we think w e are
in the seventh heaven. I once lived t
on such a kiss forty-eight hours, for

BEAUTIFUL THOUGHT.
It cannot be that earth is man'son
lyubiding place, it cannot he ihatour
life ia a bubble, cast up by the ocean
ol eternity, to float a moment on thi
wave, and then sink intodarknessand
nothingness; else whv is it, that tin;
aspirations that leap like angels from
the temple of our hearts, are forever
wandering abroun unsatisfied: Why
is it that the rainbow and the chuuh
come over us with a tieauty that is
not of earth, then pass away and
leave us to muse upon their l.idctl
loveliness? Why is it that the stars
that hold festival around the midnight
throne, are placed so far above the
grasp of our limited lacultii-s, forever
mocking us with their unapproacha
ble glory? And finally, why h it.
thai bright forms of human beauty1
are presented to our vision, then taken
from us, leaving the thomand cur
rents of our affections to flow back
like cold and Alpine torrents upon
the heart? We ate born for a higher
destiny than that of canh. There is a
land where the rainbow never fades,
where the stars will be spread out
before us like islands that slumber up
on the ocean; and where the beauii-
ful beings that pass here like visions,
will stay in ourpresenco forerer.
