One of our oldest merchants, who is so soon to pass away, and who formerly carried on business in Beaver street, re sidin';; —as it wns the custom in old times —over his store, tells the following thrill ing narrative, which he occasionally re lates with wonderful effect: “A party had been collected at his house to give eclat tj one of those little family festivals which brighten the dark trace of life, and cheer the human heart in every dime. It was his daughters wedding day; erowdsof her young acquaintances circled around her, and as the father gazed proudly on the face of the young bride, he wished as bright a prospect might open for his other children who were gamboling merrily among a crowd. Passing through the passage connecting the lower rooms he met the servant maid, an ignorant country wench, who was carry ing a lighted tallow candle in her hand without a candlestick. He blamed her for this dirty conduct, and went into the kitchen to make some ar rangeuienls with his wife about the supper table ; the girl shortly returned with her arms full of ale bottles, but without the candle. The merchant immediately re collected that several barrels of gunpowder had been placed in his cellar duringthe day and that his loreman had opened one of the barrels to select a sample lor a cus tomer. “Where is your candle?" he in quired in the utmost agitation. “1 couldn't bring it up with me, for my hands were i n i ’ i ^ivn i uh. k i »» m-i v. j ''U » v w » s it ?•’ “Well, I M no candlestick, so I stuck it in to some black sand that's therein one of the tubs.'’ The merchant dashed down the cellar steps; the passage was long and dark, and, as he groped his way on, his knees threatened to give way under him; his breath was choked, and his flesh seemed suddenly to become dry and parched, as it he already felt the suffocating blast ot death. At the extremity of the passage, in the front cellar, under the very room where his children and friends we re re fil ing in felicity, he discerned the open pow der barrel, full almost to the top, the candle stuck lightly in the loose grains, with a long, red snuff of burnt-out wick topping the small and gloomy flame. This sight seemed to wither all his powers, and ! tile merry laugh of the young iters above ! struck upon his heart like the knell of death, lie stood for some moments, gazing upon i the light, unable to advance. The tiddler ■ commenced a lively jig, and tiie feet of dancers responded with increased vivacity; j the floor shook with their exertions, and ; the loose bottles in the cellar jingled with the motion, fie fancied the candle moved —was falling ! With desperate energy he dashed forward ; but how was he to re move it ? The slightest touch would cause the small live coal of wick to fall into the loose powder. With unequaled presence of mind he placed a hand each side of the candle, w ith the open palms upward, and the distended fingers pointed toward the [ object of his care, which, as his hands ; gradually met, was secured in the clasping or locking of his fingers, and safely re moved from the head of the barrel. When i he reached the head of the ,-tairs the excite ment was over; he smiled at the danger : he had conquered : but the reaction was too powerful, and he fell into fits of most violent and dreadful lau&hter. He was conveyed senseless to bed, and many weeks elapsed ere his nerves recovered sufficient tone to allow him to resume his habits of every day life.—X. T. Commercial Advertiser. GRAVY POMADE. A good religions college at Lansing, Michigan, was blessed with a wide circle of female friends among the denomina tion which it represented. One year tho ladies in a thriving town where the college was very popular thought it would be a j kind act to send the Senior class a box of 1 good things for Thanksgiving. They pre pared a lot of mince and pumpkin pies, | frosted cake, cold roast turkeys, and other dainties; and in order that the turkeys might go off smoothly, they put in the . box a bottle of rich, savory gravy. It was not labeled, and the bottle containing it was very much like those in which a I favorite kind of hair oil is exposed for sale on the tempting shelves of fancy goods stores. When the box was opened at the college and the joyful feast disclosed to view, the Senior class were highly delighted. That Thanksgiving.dinner was the happiest for many a year, with one little exception, and this was more comical than melancholy. Three or four of the Seniors, with hand | some curling hair, thong it, of course, I these benevolent ladies had them in view in sending a present of hair oil; and they j slyly carried off the bottle, and in their j own rooms made a faithful application of gravy to their heads! The stickiness of the supposed hair oil soon aroused wonder; | but it was some time before the Seniors i knew that they had made a wrong use of a table luxury. The joke soon spread through the college, and at last reached the ears of the donors of the box. A Christmas, therefore, the same generous hearted ladies made ready another box o4 good things, and forwarded it to the sumo college. Taking a hint from the previous blunder, and believing that perhaps it was necessary for the Seniors that their heads should be fashionably anointed, these kind ladies put in the second box a bottle of real hair oil. , The bottle, like its predecessor containing ■ gravy, bore no label, and some of the un lucky Seniors determined to make no mis take this time, poured the contents liberally over their plates at dinner, without stop ping to taste or smell. The odor of ber gamot or cinnamon did not once unde ceive them. They imagined the hair oil to be, perhaps, an elegant new French dressing for cold meats, and swallowed their food with a few qualms, but with the hearty appetites of youth. J. W. TOWABD, M. I)., !
