THE BACHELOR'S LAMENT.

But ah! 'tis the cost that I fear;

By hooping the fingers with gold.

A flw Fumo.--Many of our c'iti
zenls will dloub1tless recollect the
'late James WV. ~Johnston, a resi
dent of Castle Hayne, in Penider
county, N, C. lHe was quite aged
and decrepit, and his general ap
,pcar'ance indicated that he was
possessed of but fe w otf th is world's
goods. During a visit to this city
a few months since, he dlied very
suddently in the Scarborough
House, on North Walter steet. H is
family consisted of threoe dlaught
era and son, oneO of the former be
ing the widow of the late Thlomas
Williams, of Penderi county.. Sinle
the death of the old gentleman .a
muimber of vatlu alie bonds and secu-~
rities have b)en discovered among'
:fhis effects, and which were sold1 at
public auction a few days since
the total sale amounting :to about
$10,000.~ And now comes eviden~ce
~of how well thegold man took .care
of the .precious metals which came
into his .possession. Under the be
lief that be h&d~soinbutied treas
ure a sarnh was imntdt a (lnv
or Mrs qince, whick xerulf4 in the
discovery of about $22,000'in gold
and silver, which he had Securely
deposited in jars and buried undei
his house. The discovery of so
much of the valuable metals was
a most agreeble surprise to the
members of the family, who will
thus come into possession, in con
nection with the proceeds of the
bonds, of from $8,000 to $10,000
apiece. Our information is deriv
ed from a very reliable source, and
the main facts of the "big find"
can be relied upon as strictly true.
WivEs SPEAKING OF HUSBANDS.
Says the "Pall Mall Gazette:"
What ought a wife to call her hus
band in speaking to a third per
son? Should she say "my hus
band,'' or should she use the sur
name without any prefix (as Mrs.
Carlyle used to talk of "Carlyle,")
01 should she adopt another plal
of that lady's, and speak, as it
were, of "Mr. C?" Perhaps it is
a matter of indifference in Eng
land; but in France a woman's us
age in the matter is taken as a
test of breeding. In the provinces.,
it seems, wives speak of their Is
ha(nds as 'monsieur," as if their
particular "on'lsieu W,' were sipe
rior to all others. Or perihaps they
think this style ex)resses an in
ditIernee ind icaz tive of "hon ton,''
"my117 husband,"' they ilmiaine,
would be vulgar. With the polite
worldI of Paris, on Conltra ry, "Ily
Iushand" is nece)te(l as the )rol
er phrase, sulbject to two eXce)t
ions. A very affectionate wif'
may speak of her lsbaishnd by the
Chrisitian name, while after a cer-I
tain Ige any other style except the
sur mie With the prefix "mon
sieur" is held to be ridieilous, anl
a sign of " provincialism.'
