'Tis midnight ! and save the heavy tread of the sentinel, as he paces his accustom ed round, all nature sleeps calmly and peacefully. The prisoner in yonder gloomy cell is on the morrow to be led forth to die! and for what ? Money to the amount of five hundred dollars has been found in his possession, and this money has been prov en to be the property of a man who had lately mysteriously disappeared, and who was last seen in company with Louis Mo ran. These circumstances, joined to , the facts that Moran's knife found was full of blood, and that he was very much confused when he was asked how and where he had spent the evening of the fifth of June, caused Moran to be suspected, arrested and committed to prison. From the time at which he was thrown into pris on, he had steadfastly declared his inno cence, and said he received the money which was found on him from a stranger, whom he called Lewis, whom he minutely described. But, to return to the point whence we started. As the old prison clock strikes one, a fairy form flits past the sentinel,, who cries out "Who goes there?" "It is I, Mary Moran f was the ready response. . "Pass on, Marv Moran; the Sheriff gives you permission to see your husband,' was the response of the sentinel, as she passed quickly on. The doors of the pris on swung heavily open, and the next mo ment Mary Moran was pressed to the bo som of her husband. "Louis, I will not forsake thee," said the weeping girl. "And is it for me you brave all these dangers ? for me, tke outcast, the aband oned for him who to-morrow must die ? And Moran bent alook of deep devotion on the fair girl who stood at his side. "You shall not, will not die, Louis, for I can and will save thee V said the affection- The .prisoner shook his head despond ingly. But after a short puuse he resum ed "Mary, this is no time for trifling ; tell me, can you indeed save me ? If you can, I swear by yon pale, moon by the wel fare of my soul in an endless eternity by the first years of our wedded love by all that is near and dear to me I swear to be a new man T "Listen to me, Louis, said his wife. in a clear, calm tone, "listen to me ! you recollect you said, on your trial, that you received the money which was found in your possession from a man, called Lewis, whom you described as tall and slender, fair complexioned, bright blue eyes, and dressed in an iron-gray frock coat, white pantaloons and blue silk neckcloth ; you are to dream that you will see this man, and I will do the rest. The jailor tapped at the window and said, "You were to stay with you husband but an hour it has passed you must re tire ;n and she passed quickly out. The gray dawn of the morning was just appearing, when the jailor walked softly in touched Moran and said, "Day has come ; prepare to die T "Oh, I had such a sweet dream f said Moran, seemingly awaking from a . deed sleep. "What was it F asked the jailor. "I dreamed that as I was going to the gallows I saw this man, Lewis, who gave me that accursed money and I told you of it, and that you hung him in my place, replied Moran. Meanwhile the procession was slowly moving to the gallows, when the jailor, who had taken a deep interest in Moran's dream, slightly touched him. 'There is a person answering your de scription of Lewis, said he, pointing to the crowd. "Yes, by heaven ! it is Lewis !n shout ed Moran. The - stranger instantly fled, but was pursued and overtaken, and confessed the crime. Moran instantly received a re prieve from the Governor and left the country. - " ' - , ' " ' The stranger, after lying a week in prison, applied for a dismissal, alleging that she was the wife of Louis Moran. It was indeed she, who had dressed herself in such a manner as to conform to her hus band's description of Lewis, and thus had saved her husband V life. - EST A 1112111 saa of a painter he knew, that "he painted a shingle so exactly; like marble, "that when it fell into . the river , it sank. A Snccessrol Trick. A young and skilful disciple of Robert Houdin, was some ago travelling in the northern provinces of France, giving ex hibitions in natural magic, in company with a young wag now director of a printing es tablishment in Paris. ' In their wander ing they halted at the town of R ' more renowned for its manufactures than for the natural brilliancy of its inhabitants. Here the receipts of the magician were absolutely nothing, and despair reigned in the hearts of our two adventurers. What was to be done? "By my faith, exclaimed the assistant magician, "it will never do to say we did not make our expenses ! I have it ! Let me write a poster for one more entertain ment ; and if the attraction dont answer, call me no assistant for a high priest of di- a"bleri: "At the urgent request of the large and intelligent audiences cf our former enter tainments, we have consented to perform the astounding feat of making the cathe dral bell ring any hour indicated by any of the audience. To take place this eve ning." "There how will that do? "Uut how, in heaven s name, are you to fulfil the promise ?' Oh ! never mind. Am I not a worthy pupil of a skilful master ? Leave that to me. Night came, and with it a crowd of the curious. All went off well, and now came the feature of the evening. Any one was asked to name a number. "Four ! came from the crowd. "In fear and trembling, the mighty ma gician extended his hand towards the ca thedral, when one ! two ! three ! four ! boomed slowly irom the cupola. The cold presperation started to the exhibitor's brow, and the audience shouted with delight and surprise. ' ' "Encore I encore ?" resounded from all parts of the room. Again! What was to be done ? But a voice from behind the curtain said : "Go ahead, old boy its all right P With a sigh of relief the exhibitor re peated the miracle, again and again, and the spectators departed filled with enthu siasm ! "What, in the name of wonder, have you been doing ?" exclaimed the puzzled principle to his laughing assistant, as soon as the doors were closed. , "Why, I gave the bell-ringer five francs to stay in the belfry and ring as many times as I placed candles in the window, and I think it succeeded pretty well n'est ce pas !' replied the other, shaking the well filled cash box. The next day, as they were starting in the cars, one of the city councellors came to them, and begged that they would ex plain the miracle. "It is magnetism, my friend," said the magician, with a flourish of his hand, and the magistrate departed, much edified, and perfectly satisfied. " The Corn Dodger.- A correspondent who signs himself "Omo," in the Southern Cultivator, has "an abiding faith" in corn dodgers. Hear him: - v A dodger what a rich boon it Is what a luxury, a glorious commonality. It is the foundation stone stone the very bone and sinew of all good living. Why don't people have more dodger and less ginger bread fixings? -They'd be the better for it. There is plenty of cira meal, water and salt everywhere, and that all you want. Don't fumbler it and chuck it about, and daub it up with grease, saleratus, eggs, pumpkins, and other outlandish flummiga tions that a int dodger. Just stir it up with clean water (and salt if you. choose) and bake it brown and crispy, as big as whole bricks, and bring it along smoking, steaming hot that's dodger. And there's nothing better. It's good with anything it's good without anything- r It's good when It's hot, and it's good when it's cold It's good for the young, and it's good for the old. A dodger O, it's a glorious inTention ! It's the most wholesome diet that ever went down the throat of man. It won't give you the dyspepsia nor the rheumatism.' It won't give you the "blocs, and you don't have to take pills and other "pizen stuff to work it off. Its the best vermi fuge ever invented for children. It fattens "litt'e niggers" make them grow makes them strong and healthy try it. There's nothing ahead of corn dodger. " ' ' ' z ; JC "They don't make as ; good mir rors as they used, to," remarked; an old maid, as she observed a pair of sunken eyes; wrinkled face and lived complexion' in a glass that she usually looked into; A French 2ueL The morning was cold and rainy, and seeing before him ; a chalet? through whose windows shone a glorious fire, and whose curious external stairway descended even to his feet,as if coquetishly inviting him to share mountain hospitality, : Dupont did not hesitate to mount to te door; he found the key in the lock, opened and ; entered. A man was seated at a dtLwith his back to the door at the noise of the opening he turned his head, and recognizing the intruder, cried:;1 ri ; T "Ah, is it you, Dupont? - We will take a turn immediately. r r . It was Fournier who thus spoke. "Faith, I am ready", said Dupont. Fournier took his sword from the corner of the room; they fell into position; they crossed weapons.' All this - passed in a moment to see, recognize and provoke, and attack each other was as natural and spontaneous as to breathe. It was only be tween the passes that they conversed. "I thought you were employed in the interior," said Fournier. "The minister gives me the fourth di vision. ' 1 "Indeed, how fortunate! I command the cavalry there. So you have just ar rived?" - ' " "This instant." "And thought of me the first thing how amiable you are!" "No really. I did not know you were here: seeing a fire through these windows, as I was about to pass, I stopped to warm myself.1 - : "This exercise will warm you suffi ciently." The first became fiercer Fournier ha zarded a pass, which Dupont taking ad vantage of, pushed him so vigorously that he was forced to give back step by step. Dupont advanced steadily within dis tance, crying: , T "Aha! You run! You ran!" . ' . " "Not at all. 1 only retreat. Do you think I am going to let you split me like a a sparrow?" "The room is small; I shall drive you to the walir V ' ; "We shall see!" "See then!" and as Dupont said this, he pressed Fournier literally into the , comer, arid his sword piercing the ' muscles of Fournier's neck, pinned him to the wood en wall like a family portrait badly hung. "The devil !" cried the spitted gen eral. "You did not expect this!" said Du pont ' - "'"t" "On the contrary, it is you who do' not expect what will happen?" "Indeed, what is about to happen, then?" 'Why, the moment you draiy out your sword, I shall thrust mine into your stom ach, and you will fall? ; ? v' 1 ' - "True," replied Dupont, pressing his sword with great force into the logs of the cottage walk " : "Well, what the devil are you piercing the wall for?" - ' -: '-" ? r ' ' "I am taking precaution against your lunge in my stomach." r 4 . "You cannot avoid it; the moment you withdraw, you die?" ' ' "I shall not withdraw till you throw down your sword. 1 r ? ; ' "It is impossible for you' to "keep your arm thus strained for ten minutes, it must drop, and receive my thrust "You are unreasonable,' your blood is flowing, in ten minutes your" eyes will close." i VIS i "We shall see. ; ' ' ' ' "Very well. I am not impatient.' "Nor L 1 Will abide the result!" This contest would .probably have been prolonged to a fatal termination, had not the noire of their dispute at length been heard by some officers in another part cf the house, who, coming hastily upon the scene, separated with much difficulty the obstinate combatants. , " - When parted they each claimed the victory, and finally demanded, with great gravity j to be replaced exactly aa they were when separated," Dupont promisiEg to refix his sword through Fournier's throat without increasing the wound. They were finally obliged to force the latter to bed, and the former out of the chalet. ,4 ... r Jr.- ' - v Axd a Goon RiDDAjrcE.Too.-A love sick young gentleman, who has taken very much of late to writing' sonnets, has just hung himself with one ct his own lines.

' Said I, "My head feels a little achish ; what do you think I had better do V9 "Why, friend S. says the Doctor, says he, "the best thing you can do is to go straight home soak your feet and take a sweat ; 'cause if you don't," says he, "as like as not you may have a fever." - Says I, "Doctor, I was just a thinkin a little sweat would do me good, and I guess I'll go home and try it, right away." Well, I did ; I went home and took a bowlfull of tansey tea, bitter as gall, and if I didn't sweat like a beaver 'taint no matter. The next morning my head was as clear as a bell, and I was as good as ever I was. Well, a day or two afterward I met the Doctor ; after a little talking, says the Doctor, says he : "Neighbor, S., I've got a little bill agin you." I rooked at him clui, and says I, "A bill, Doctor f "Yes," says he, "a bill for advice, you know, at Simian's store the other day. What do you think he had gone and done? He'd actually charged me two dollars for telling me to go home and take a sweat, which I was just going to do my self, without his telling. "Well, Doctor" says I, for I didn't want to appear mean you know "it's all right; I will bear it in mind. Well, a few days after the Doctor was passing by my door in his chaise, and somehow or other one of the wheels got a little loose, so says I : "Doctor, if you don't drive that linch-pin an inch or so that wheel will come off." "Thank you, says he, and he took a stun and driv in the pin. Well, I went into the house, and just made a charge of it, and when he came along the next time, I presented him the bill. "Hello!" says the Doctor, says he; "what on airth is this for V "Why, it's for advice," says I. "Advice!" says he. "What advice? I haint had none o you advice." " Why, for driving in your wheel-pin, and, I've only charged you two dollars and twenty-five cents, and if I hadn't given you the advice, it might have cost you ten times as much." "Well," says the Doctor, "the differ ence between your bill and mine is just twenty-five cents." . "That is all you owe me," says I. "Well, I'll bear it in mind," says he. And I expect he will. He's as tight as a cn tulle-mould, is the Doctor; and I guess he is able to bear it in mind. A Cool Proposition. A young man just married, in humble circumstances a wife's cousin comes in from the country to pay. them a short visit very glad to see each other, etc., etc. In the midst of the rejoicing, an ominous thought crosses the mind of the husband. "Well, Martha, we don't know how we are going to accommodate you. We've only one bed you know. Martha. "Oh that's nothing. I can sleep with your wife, and you can get lodg ings at a hotel for three or four weeks very easily." "Sehvawts Half Price. "Is the gi raffe to be seen here?" "Yes sir." "I want to see him." "Very well, sir." "Its fifty cents, isn't it?" "One dollar, sir. Fifty cents for ser vants." ' "Well, I'm a servant," -"You a servant," . "Yes sir." "Whose?" "Yours, sir; your humble servant." "Walk in and take a seat." The Joke was well worth the price of admission. No room to TtJRH. "Mother, I'm afraid a fever would go hard with me." "Why my son?"

' - "Most people might think so,from the choice I made of a husband, - she replied. Pretty Women and Politeness. A talented lady who "writes for the pa pers," speaks thus of city railway cars : "The seats of the car were all occupied crowded, yet the conductor waited for me. Not wishing to disturb those who were seated, I was intending to stand, but a gentleman up at the far end arose and insisted upon ray taking his seat. Being very tired, I thanked him and obeyed. Presently a lady, much younger, much prettier, and much better dressed than my self, entered the the car. No less than four gentlemen arose instantly, offering her a seat. She smiled sweetly and unaf fectedly, and thanking the gentleman who urged the nearest seat to her, she seated herself with a peculiar grace of manner, she had one those faces Raphael was always painting touchingly sweet and expressive. A little after this young beaty had taken her seat, a poor woman, looking very thin and pale, with that care worn hagard look that poverty and sorrow, and hard labor always give, came in. She might have been one of those poor seamstresses who work like slaves and starve for labor. She was thinly and mean ly clad, and seemed weak and exhausted. She had evidently no sixpence to throw away, and came into tho car not to stand, but to rest while she was helped on her journey. While she was meekly stand ing for the moment, none of the gentlemen offering to rise Raphael's angel, with sweet reproving eyes looked on those "who had so officiously offered her a seat, seeing none of them to move, and just as I myself was rising to give the poor old lady a seat, she arose and insisted upon the woman taking her seat. It was all the work of but a mo ment ; aud the took of grateful surprise the old woman gave her, and the evident con sternation of the broad-cloth individuals, who were manifestly put to shame all were to me irresislably interesting and in structive. One of the same broad -cloth wearers, apparently overcome with con fusion, got up and left the car, and Raph ael's angel took his vacant seat." Well done, Raphael's angel ! Advance Patmekt for Newspa pers. No subscriber worth retaining, will object to the payment in advance system. Those who wanted to hear Jenny Lind sing, had to pay in advance ; and what were her divinest strains compared with those which flow from editorial pens ? You can't take your seat in a .ricketty mail coach, or fly-from-the-track railroad car, without paying in advance for the risk of being killed. If you would hear a concert, or literary lecture, or see Tom Thumb or the Siamese Twins, you must plank down your twenty-five, or fifty, or one-hundred cents, before you can pass the thresh-hold. Nay, if any one has so little regard for his own character as to want to read Bar num's Autobiography, he must first pay for it. And yet men hesitate and cavil about paying in advance for a paper fur nished at a price on the very brink and utmost verge of prime cost. Cleveland Herald. To Preserve Smoked Meat.- How often are we disappointed in our hopes of having sweet hams during the summer ? After carefully curing and smoking, and when sewing them up in bags, and white washing them, we find that either the fly has commenced a family in our hams, or that the choice parts round the bone are tainted, and the whole spoiled. Now, this can be easiiy avoided by packing them in pulverized charcoal. No matter how hot the weather, now how thick the flies, hams will keep sweet for years. The preservative quality a of charcoal it self decays. Butter, too, set in a clean crock, and sur rounded by pulverised charcoal,' will never become rancid. Try it. Ex. ' - , Plizms. Take any quantity of good perfect plums, well cleamed from, stems and dust, pour into a boiler one. third full of hot water, let them stand over the fire from five to ten minutes, then pour water, plums and all into a jar, keg or barrel. When laid by, the water should cover the fruit and treated otherwise as pickles. When required for use they may be taken from the li quid, slowed and sweetened to taste. When so prepared, the fruit almost resembles dried cherries and is a most ex cellent and delicate dish.

In six hours time (no matter how bad the founder,) he will be fit for moderate ser vice.

TJeiIn the United States, physicians have estimated that 20,000 persons die every year from the use of tobacco. In Germany the physicians . have calculated that, of all the deaths which occur between the years of 18 and 26, one-half originate in the waste of the constitution by smok ing. They say thtt it exhausts and deran ges the nervous powers and produces & long train of nervous diseases, to which the stomach is liable, and especially those forms that go under the name oi dyspejv sia. It also exerts a disastrous influence, on the mind.
