AMERICAN (J I FT BOOKS FOR 1861.?Agent* are
wanted to circulate the following uew ami beautiful
works, (retail price, $2 60 per vol.) A uew anil complete
with a descriptive account of thorn) countries ami their
inhabitants, from the earliest period of authentic history
to the present tluie. In which the editor has treated not
only of the historical events, but also of the manners,
customs, religion, literature, anil domestic habits of the
people of those immense empires.
The embellishments are about two hundred, and of the
first order, illustrating whatever is peculiar to the inhabi
tants, regarding their dress, domestic occupations, their
mode of agriculture, commercial pursuits, arts, Ac. They

are decidedly the best books that agents can possibly em
ploy their time in supplying to the people of the United
States. They are valuable for reference, and should be
possessed by every family in this great republic. There is
not a city or town in these United States, not even those
nf small importance, but contains many citizens to whom
these works are indispensable. They are adapted to the
literary wants of the Christian, the patriot, the statesman,
and the domestic circle, got up in a superior style of art
and workmanship; and are not only such books as will
sell, but are such as an agent of good principle will feel
free to recommend, and willing to Bee the purchaser again
after they have been bought.
0<m Plan.?The plan the publisher has so successfully
cairled out for several years, is the obtaining responsible
c:on as agonts,who are well known in their own counties,
owns, and villages, and have time and disposition to cir
culate good and instructive books among their neighbors
and friends. Any person wishing to embark in the enter
prise will risk little in sending $25 or $60, for which he
will receive an assortment as he may direct, at the whole
sale cash prices.

address, would do well to engage in the sale of the above
volumes; and all postmasters, clergymen, book pedlars,

l'ersous residing out of the city, by enclosing in a letter
the sum they wish forwarded, with the plainly written

otherwise, are avoided.
The Society keeps an office at No. 22 Spruce street, to
which Emigrants can apply to obtain situations for which
they are fitted.
Orders from employers in the country, stating the ser
vices required, the wages, and the cheapest modes of con

The President had further spoken,
If bell for dinner hadn't broken
His "thread"?which might have proved a long one;
But dinner-bell was quite a strong one,

And drowned all other pounds?e'en thoso
Which so approvingly arose:
Therefore, the President inclined
His noble head, and looked resigned.
Pell-moll, from "ladies' parlor" poured
The company to groaning board,
With "feelings" would not brook control,
More potent than the "flow of soul."
According to "Frodonia's Banner,"
"The Chairman spoke in happiest manner ;
His Excellency then replied
In stylo sublimely dignified."

That every Whig rejoiced to smother

That all the talk of Gardiner Claim
Was scarcely worthy him to name ;
In brief, did mortal never, never

Chapter VI.?The Result.
Presently a loud shout from the whole party
announced his safe arrival on the opposite bank,
and restored a degree of color to the cheek of
Annie Bell, who had not dared to look till now.
It was the wish of the party that he should not
attempt to return, and this they advised him of
by shouts and gestures; but the struggling
waters drowned their voices, and he did not ob
serve, or, if he did, would not heed, the signs.
Already he had commenced his return ; slowly
und cautiously, and steadily, he advanced; and
this time the water only came to bis ankle, save
once, when his horse stepped into a hole, and
immersed the rider to the knee. In a moment
more he had grasped the bands of his friends,
and heard his loved Annie exclaim, " Thank
God!" as bo resumed his place at lier side.
Now he explained to them how, the first time,
he had mistaken the right path across, and
struck it again accidentally; and insisted upon
remaining the very last one, in order to direct
the crossing of the rest.
First Ilarry Leo went over with very little
difficulty. Effio Bradley followed, with dread
ful apprehensions, but, nevertheless, arrived
safely, to Harry's great relief. All the com
pany on horseback had gone over, and the exact
course became so apparent that those last to go
felt surprising assurance of their safety. Even
Old John had crossed over, chuckling, and
beating the donkeys to his heart's content, ex
claiming, "Now, yer long-eared brutes, yer!
now I've got you! You dare'sent kick up here,
an' you knows it!" The buggies next passed,
amid a variety of " screechesand, at length,
Edwin Berry alone remained, who commenced
to button hia coat and settle himself firmly in
bis saddle. Anxiously the party observed him
start to cross, and every one thought, with a
vague presentiment, of the prediction of the
Witch of Golding Gorge. Gaily he rode; and,
when about half-way, he kissed his hand smil
ingly to Annie Bell, who gazed 011 him with
breathless interest. All the party turned to
rally Annie upon her gallant knight, when such
a shriek of the wildest anguish arose as appalled
every ear, and Annie fell senseless to the earth.
No one thought of her for the moment, for they
knew too well what t^at despairing cry im
ported. They turned instantaneously, and it
was too true ; \jis horse had stumbled, thrown
his rider, and the unhappy man was struggling
in the wildest rapids below, whither he had
been swept in a moment.
'Twas useless to attempt to save him. Only
once he reappeared, with his arms stretched out
vainly for succor, and then sunk suddenly and
entirely from view. A groan escaped from
many a manly breast, and tears streamed from
bright eyes, when this appalling result was seen.
I'oor Annie! poor Annie Bell! when they
raised her from the sod she was still insensible;
and more like a funeral procession it seemed
tnau the return of a pleasure party, when
Moorfield was reached at ten o'clock that night,
and Annie wa? confided to the care of her grief
stricken mother, and the skill of the village
surgeon. When the disastrous news was im
parted, there were tears and lamentations all
that night in Moorfield Hamlet.
As for Eddy?gallant Eddy ! noble Eddy!?
two days after the fatal occurrence bis body "w as
found in a neighboring pool of the South Poto
mac, standing erect, with, both arms extended, at if
in supplication." He lies in the village church
! yard, and on the side next his heart rests all
1 that remains of pretty Annie Bell. She died
1 of consumption, twelve months, to a day, from
the date of the prediction of the Witch of Gold
, ing Gorge. Her illness was induced by violent
I grief, and a morbul fear of the fulfilment of the
prophecy. .
' Since then, no peasant ever glances towards
! the hut that still holds together at the foot of
1 the rocky ledge, without a silent prayer to bo
shielded from The Witch or Golihnq Gohcik !
