?A sister's love! I dwell upon the tlieune?
The only love on earth to which the cart h
lias iriven no taint of self regardful care
uas b^c" "" HENY WARE.
It is ahoul the middle of November?to
bright, soft day, when the genial spi.it ot
the year looks back with one of his farewell
smiles. His warm breath has spread a mI
ver haze over the rugged hill-Miles. The
mountain tops are shining?the dried leaves.
bitten off by the frost, turn round and round
and drop without a sound. A rather nar
row, brisk stream runs rapidly, descending
as it goes, till it reaches the rear of a neat,
one-story house, where, being set back b>
a dam below, it seems like a plate of bur
nished steel from which a soft vapor is ris
ing Around its edges is a thin co.iliug ol
ice, indicatiug the cold of the preceding
night. The house stands on the declivity
of a hill that slopes gradually from the
road, (a hundred yards from it,) with one
end to the river, the other to the road, autl
fronting South. Behind it is a litile yar
den-patch, which in its winter adversity
shows sigus of being cared for and loved ;
some plants being carefully tied up, and a
few covered with old boxes and barrels, j
There are some other signs of refinement, J
not too common about the humble dwell
ings of our conutry parls; vines trained
about the low door, and rose bushes so
nicely fitted around the old windows thai
they seem to have come and to stay there
of their own aecoid. Neatness, that good
angel of an humble home, keeping all right'
with her ever rustling wings, hovers round
this pretty dwelling. A small woodpile is
laid up as if by mathematical rule. No
liitcr of any kind is anywhere to be seen,
and one wonders what the splendid cock
with his pedestrian harem can find to make
them pick so busily arouud the sunny door
way.
It is but nine o'clock, and morning at1
that hour, on the fifteenth of November,
had hardly dawned on luxurious dwellers
- in great houses ; but here how much of
the daily work had been accomplished. A
pale, and in common parlance, "unfortunate
man," is sitting bolstered in an easy chair
near a cheerful fire, his right arm and leg
withered and useless. His wife, a woman
?with a mild, thoughtful face, sits near the
"window making a vest, and with the imple
ments of latloring about her. W iih every
stitch, and without hinderiug it, sbe turns
her eye on the lame man, and addressing
him as country wives use, she says, "Do
you find your paper interesting, father? is
it almost lime lor father's drops?" ami the
answer is k'Yes," or "No," as may be, but
always iu a cheerful tone, which, coming
from that poor, mutilated figure, is startling
like a light suddenly kindled in darkness.?
A trig little lass is putting the last touches
to the morning's house-work. She has
cleared away the breakfast, skimmed the
milk, "swept up," and "mopped up," and
is ready to sit down by her mother to finish
otr the work that always accumulatesfor
Saturday. Both father's and mother's eyes
often turn to her, and who would not luve
to look on a face so beaming with intelli
gence, so fresh and cheerful. Never were
there prettier or brighter lips, or more
beautiful teeth, or in palace or cottage a
more electrifying smile than little Ruth
Hathaway's. Perhaps it derived this qual
ity from a cast of sadness and care on her
brow ; it was a shadow on a rose. There
it fell when her father was brought home
from his new factory with the flesh torn
from his arm and leg, and there it remained
indelible. As to the rest, the face is pretiy
and pleasing, but not beautiful; her eyes are
rather small and greyish, and her complex
ion clear and pure, is uut brilliant. Her hair
not only does not curl, and is neither au
burn, chestnut, nor raven, but a very com
mon brown, and only remarkable for the
neatness with which she arranges it on her
very well-sbaped head. Ruth is said 10 be
the image of her father, and she rather
prides herself on this resemblance.
Ralph Hathaway is reckoned by common
observers, as we have said, an "unfortunate
man could any amount of ill-luck or ca
lamity make that epithet fitting him whose
temperament is so cheerful ihat his sun
w ill break through the heaviest clouds??
His heart is a never-intermitting fountain of
love to God, and peace and goodwill to
f an
"'Ruth, what are you lisloning for r
asked the father; "1 hear nothing but the
factory."
"Nor I,father; 1 wish we did not always
hear that,?it??
44 It puts you in mind of father s accident t
I know, Ruthy, and so it docs me, but then
it sets m? off thinking how my life was
spared, and how 1 should never have known
what a good woman mother is, but for that
'tis not every wife that would care for
such a poor rack as I am."
"O, father!" exclaimed both mofher and
child.
"Well, then, it is not every woman thai
would give up the thoughts of being the
wife of a rich agent for a company, move
out of a nice new house, and stitch, stitch
from morning to night to support her fami
ly. Who ha# a right to be cheerful, if 1
have not ? I can tell you there's times
when the factory makes my thoughts go
straight up." .
Our friend Hathaway's voice was rather
choked ; he cleared it, and added, "but
what were you listening to Ruihy, dear?'
"Why, father, I was listening for the rail
road whistle ; we always hear it, you know
when tho wind is west."
"Why, I heard it, Ruth, when you were
?etting up the dishes."
"Oh, did you, father ?" then Charlie's
letter is near the poet office by this time."
"Do n't be too sure, my child "
''I can't help being sure, mother. Char
lie never tails to write when he says he will,
and this letter is to tell us whether he can)
come home to Thanksgiving, and its onlv
twelve days to that, and I shall be hmI six
teen that day."
k \ es, yes, Ruthy," said the father,
. come what come may, thanksgiving da)
will always be thanksgiving to us."
"Oh, there's Colonel Miles !" exclaimed I
Ruth, and she lushed to the door, not, I
however, without giving her father a brush
'">1 a kiss as she passed. j
"Colonel Miles!" she shouted, "can't j
you please to slop at the post-ofiice, anil I
'jriug our letter from Chailic ?" The Col.
v as not going to the post-office, hut his
;nrniitg-ofl place was near it, and it was hut
die work of two minutes for Kuth to beg a
??eat in hi.s little wagon, to get her mother's
leave to go herself to the post-office, to I
rake the chance of the two miles' walk
home it she did not get a cast, and above I
ill to obtain leave to open the letter hersell,
as soon as received, to whichever member
of the family it might be addressed.
Three hour&passed away, when Anthouy,
?? colored man, living at Mr. Gardner's in
the village, brought Airs. Hathaway a letter
from 11 uih. It euclosed one from Charles.
On Ruth's lettei was written in large char
acters, "Read this first," and the mother
road as follows ; "Dear mot her, and father,
don't feel too bad. I shall be on my way
to New York when you get this. Mist
Emma Gardner Ims lent me ten dollars, and
what clothes I shall w ant. Father can't go;
and you can't leave father, mother; and j
?I can't stay. Father you will keep up
mother's spirits won't you ?" I kuow it
will all come right.
"P. S. Mr. Gardner has gone to Boston,
so Mis? Emma and 1 have had no one to
cousult with. 1 would not tell any body
else for the world." i
Mrs. Hathaway, pale and trembling, gave
this letter to her husband, while she read
that from her son Charles.
"Dear father arid mother, and Ruth,?I
have got into some trouble. 1 ask of you
all not to feel anxious or distressed. I ex
pect" (expect was erased and /tape substi
tuted) 'Mo get out well, but if I don't, I
shall still keep 'right ?ido up,' as father
would say. Now be calm, mother, dear.
Just before we locked up last night, I ob
served a stranger come into the shop ? the
doors were closed, and all the clerks called
into the middle ot the shop, away from the
counters. Otis Jackson w as standing close
to me at the time we were spoken to. 1
heard him mutter'd?n it,' but I had not
the least thought of what was coming. Mr.
Brown spoke : 'We have been missing,'!
nays he, 'fine goods for the last month ; a
shawl was taken last week ; two yards of
costly lace and one of the five-dollar pocket j
handkerchiefs are gone to-day. YVe have
a policeman here, and you must all be
searched. One of you must be guilty. I
am sorry for th? innocent, but no disgrace I
will rest upon them,?do your duty, Rush
ton.' The policemen began the search.
?Some of our young men laughed and joked;
I could not, 1 was afraid it would prove to
be Otis. He was the fourth searched, no
thing was found on him. My turn came
next; the things were found in my coat
pocket, cftopof my handkerchief and every
thing, as il they had just been put there ?
How the truth is to be found out, 1 don't
know, but 1 feel as if it would. All I ask
is that father will keep up mother's spirits,
and dear Ruth, only think how you would
all feel if 1 had taken the things. 1 shall
wiite daily, so don't be auxious.
"Ever your loving son and brother,
"Charles.
"P. S. Dire'ct to me 'care of Robert Hen
shaw; he is my Iriend among the clerks."
(To he continued.)
Important, jf true.?Just as our paper
was going 10 press, says the New Orleans Na
tional ot the 5th instant, we were iuformed by
a gentleman in whom we have every confi
dence, that a report from a respectable source
reached this city from the ciiy of Mexico, last
night, that a dysentery of a malignant charac
ter had broken out among our troops at Puehla,
and that it is believed the Mexican venders of
milk, pulque, liquors, &c., poisoned those ar
ticles with acertaiu poisonous vegetable, which
grows in (lie neighborhood. We he|jeve the
rumor entitled to credit, and hope Gen. .Scott
will hear of it in time to prevent an extension
of the diaholicnl plot.
" Fell mc ubvut Dr. Cbabnera," said I to a person

A Curiosty may be seen at this ofiico, na\n the
St. Louis Republican. It is a sheaf? if we may so
call it?of wheat, the product of a single graii',
when sown. It numbers seventy stalks, and con
tains, as near an r ut lie asceilatued, lour thousind
grains. It is live feet high. and lite wheat is of a
*pk-udid quality. Thin curiosity was giown on the
farm of John biappington, esq., of (iruvois, who, we
understand, in the cultivation of this grain, considers
a peck of seed sufficient for an acre of ground, in
stead of usiug a bushel or a bushel and a half, as
many farmers do. ,

tivo fills is a medicine which not only cures
but prevents disease, cnpablc of great results, and
equally calculated to be safely used lor apparently
?mall ones. We all know how dreadful and dan
gerous a seated bilious disorder is, aud we ore also
well aware of the seeming insignificance of i's first
warnings or incipiency. The individual suffering
fioin slight pains in his chest, back, or stomach, or
from occasional nau>ea, dull headache, cxlremo ner
vousness, sleeplessness, trifling prevarication of ap
petite, and other disagreeable visitations so e minon
ly and foolishly looked upon as unimportant, may
not know that these symptoms, treated so contemp
tuously, are tke conacqueuccs of a diseased stato of
the liver, which if not remedied, will lead cither to
S|>eudy death or a fcmg tiain of unbearable ills which
aie known by the following names: Hypochondria,
mania, dizziness, slow fevers, epilepsy, asthma,
dropsy, rheumatism, chlorasis, convulsions, nausea,
nervousness, crapms, gout, pleurisy, jaundice, irrita
bility, and violence, dyspepsia, hysteiics, scurvy,foul
stomach, dry coughs, glandular affections, colds, lin
gering sore throats, various disorganizations of the
great iutostinc, strictures and spasmodic complaints
internally, eruptions, shortness of breath, heartburn,
neuralgia, vital inflammation, flatulence, gastric fe

Sometime*, too, there ensues an irregular action
of tlie heart. Tako these pills and suffer no more.
