-About a year apjo, a weU-kactva New
pu' !is,her, in tiu prime of life, married a
ay and .fascinating ycung lady iu the city
cf liikimore. -Ttie happy couple circula
tid freely smong the fashioiiaLlo rt-soits

the fall tool: up their aLode in the city o
Lo;ve!h During their perigrin iiions they
met tereral times a weahhy L'altisnore
rnerchaiit, somewhat ripened and liVtllnw
ed hy ug'e, who vas an o'i acquamtniice
of the Lride. They met Lira at Saratoga,
juci-.lenta'h' ; they met hitn, accidentally,
at New Yoih; they met him, accidentally,
it Washington ; aaJ. at last, he happened
accideiitaliy, cf course to visit Lowell.
Here the Baltimore merchant phiyed the
Rgrcentle to l is old friend the laJy, and
hi new friend, her husband. It happened
oae. tvei ing, a week or ten days ago, that
these three and a sister of the lady in ques
tion made n party together "at a f.ishiona
Ue saloon, where they partook cf supper
or ivfi eshmenta
fi eshmenta. Thtf huahnnd proposed
thdt all the party should accompany the
ounr? iaar to tier notne, wnien - was at
some, d
istance. : : lib wife, however; was
r j too much fatigued to walk so far. preferring
to rem'tin in the saloon, till htr husland
cksnU carry his eUier-in-lavr horu and
return to her. Of course the Baltimore
merchant remained to beguile the tedious
moments of the husband's absence, and
iih;s, before he returned a plan had been
farmed for the elopement of the yarties.
KnonjrJi of the conversation between the
lady and her Eaitimore friend was over
heard by a gentl-miian in an adjoining
shore to arouse his suspicions, and he ac
cordingiy sent an anonymous letter the
next day to the husband to put him on his
guard against the gay Lothario who was
about to deprive 'him of his better half.
The hu -baud rubbed the bro-.vs that wore
about to be cornuted, and kept his eye
peeled for breakers. In the meantime the
Baltimore 'renllemen had ccmo to this
On Wednesday morning he examined
his wife's portfolio, and found upon her
IL'.ter (why didn't she use sand ?) an im
pression of a telegraphic dispatch, in which
ihr iijfprr.a d her lover that she would meet
him in this city at 3 o'clock, P. 31. Here
was a ecn'irmuiioa of the anonymous epis
tle whose myMeriou3 sentences he could
h.rd!y fathom and scarcely believe, and
he i-j;jk measures at mar the plot against
hi honor ane peace of mind.
.Accordingly,' he informed his wife that
he was. going immediately Down East, but
started directly to Boston. When the hour
for the arrital cf the. three o'clock train
ppioached, he repaired to the Lowell de
pot. lie soon observed an elegant carriage
driven to the depot as if to receive some
body, but he looked in vain for the destroy
er uf his domestic felicity. When the
train arrived, hi wife made her appear
ance, and directly her lover darted from
an obscure corner, seized her hand and
placed her in the aforesaid carriuge. The
husband jumped into another carriage and
pursued the parties to the American House,
where he 5oon after had the satisfaction of
finding their names recorded on the books
as "P. CaroU and lady, New York, room
3'di. , '
Here were the flighty birds fairly caged
ami the injured, husband knew Li fate.
He uitmcdiuu-Iy made tracks for'a lawyer
to whom he had a letter . of introduction,
and laid the case before him. The lawyer
advised the immediate interference of the
police to prevent the guilty pair Irom con
summating their illicit purposes, but the
husband objected. '4 Wait till night," said
he, " aud arrest them in flagrante ddicfo ;
then 1 can gel a dirorcs from the perjured
creature." The " lawyer,' not ' wishing.-to
balk a divorce case, assented, end went to
hear Meagher's lecture, having previously
prepared a writ to commence an action for
dmnges in the sum of one Iiundred thou
e and dcilars. ' -'": "
- Toward midnight, the deputy sheriff, to
whom the writ had , been committed for
service, found the aforesaid lawyer, and
the twain looked up "their client. , It ap
pears that the injured man . had worked
himself up to a terrible pitch of excite
ment, and they found him with a revolver,
a. sword-cape and a horse-whip, and breath
ing out threatening and slaughter, lie
was disarmed and bis tools locked up in
the sheriflT's oSce, after which the party
proceeded to the American House; TS:e
clerk of the establishment conducted them
to the room where the guilty par were re
posing in each other's arms. The clerk
rapped at the door, " Who calls ?" cried
the Lclhario. ; The clerk please step
to the door." He did so, and opened it
slightly, being in disabille. " That's he,"
exclaimed the husband furiously, and he
straightway pullrd off his coat, jvhile Uhe
gentlemau inside was putting on his paut?.'
His impetuosity, however, was restrained
by Lis lawyer .and the sheriff, and he put
hii coat on ngaia. . ' -: '
The party entered the room ; and the
gentleman from Eakimare was madtj pris
oner. He wag a3 cool and imperturable as
if nothing !ad happened. The lovely sin
iier in the led buried her blus"king, prettj
face, in the bed covering. i' . r '
: The lawyer demanded to see her coun
tenance in Older that she might be identi
lii-d for leff.il rurro.-es. lier face was un
covered, but she .kept her eyes closed.
Open your ej-e?. It! ary ."said tiie hus
band. I can't, John," was her reply.
He brought her face in view of the lawyer
and sheriff, and .forced her pretty eyes
open. 5 : '
: The party tt.cn proceeded to the sher
iffs' oltice and a tiegotiation was set on
foot. The IkJtiinore gentleman koca be
g;m to be very anxious to seille .lh afiair
and agreed to pay down five thousand dol
lars. : The lawyer seems to have had some
conscience, for ho advised him to get legal
advice, end wait for. the next morning in
order to get a proper understanding of his
true position. He persisted, however, in
demanding an immediate settlement, and
the lawyer made his proposition known to
the husband. The gentleman declared, M
first, that not a cent less that S1G0.0C0
would appease him, and immediately af
terwards lowered his demand to S-25..0L0.
He soon relented still furtber, aud agreed
to sign n discharge in full for the turn of
$5,000 the Baltimore gentleman stipula
ting with great pjiticuliirity . that the wo
man should not be thrown upon him, as he
should feel it) honor bound to support her
if her husband should cast her., oif. The
husband assumed the responsibility of the
matter and the documents . were duly exe
cuted, and five thousand dollars paid down
iu cash and securities.
The injured man pocketed the salve for
his wounded honor, and went to the Amer
ican lloseu with his lawyer. That gen-
ileman thought best to reconcile the par
ties, and he obtained an interview with li:e
lady to give her some good advice. He
believed that she need training,aud as his
name is Trranor it must be supposed that
he was just the hian io train her. 'A for
some conversation with the lady, Mr. T.
called in the kuland who had been so
deeply injured and-so promptly Lcaled.
The scene was a rich erne.
The still indignant husband paced the
apartment. Aiary, said he, " will you
look me in the face?"
" I cannot, John," was her reply.
" Mary, look up to me !"
I cannot, John!" and she kept her
face covered with her hands.
The lawyer exhorted them to become
reconciled with tach other, and quoted the
the text which our Saviour wrote" upon the
ss-md "Let him that is without sin cast
the first stone." Said Mr. Tto the hus
band, " your wife boa been guilty of aa
slight indiscretion, hut she is young -and
beautiful, and you must forgive her." -.
' Bui she dnt ask me to forgive her !7
Yes, John, I acknowledge I Lave com
mitted a slight iudiscreliun."
' Slight indiscretion ? Slight ! Mary ?
Good Heaven, what do you call a great
indiscretion? ; 1 -
Well, John, you may call il as great
as you like I acknowledge it all, and Leg
you r. forgiveness." f. -' i ;
Are you sorry for wli3,t you hare done,
Marv ?" ","--' " '
; ".Yes, John."'' -& ;';;c ;
t ' .Are -you sorry from the bottom of your
Ler.rt?" (A long pause.) "I am, Johu."
. Then come to my arms, exclaimed
the husband, seizing her petite form and
lifting her up !.ke a child. - He then inti
mated to-his lawyer that he was at liberty
to go and occupy Lis room at the Broom
field house, as it tras past three o'clock,
A. M. IN'ot without you, sir," was the
reply, and the legaLgcmlamaa : tore Lis
client from the handsome wife, not, Low
ever, until they Lad made arrangements to
breakfast together. , .
; Thus Glided the romancej in real life,
which shows how fiaifty is sometimes al
lied .to beauty, and how far .J five thous
and" will go towards' healing 'a deadly

Without" going into the caus- or Jrsto

nothing more -than the; explosion of some
I damnable plot of ni few abolitionists and
vHlsinoua mulattoes Who wish" to satiate
their rever.gtf and hatrt d to the South, we;
would simply ask the editors of the Trib-'
and and Poit how their political doctrines
if carried out, would reiliedy' the' evils
which they 6a y the South suffer ? The
i'iack Republicans say they would confine
slavvry to its present limits it should not
be "extended that the powers of the gen
eral government should ' be exercised to
keep it within its 'present bounds and tt;at
such were the principles and policy of the
fathers of toe Republic, Washington, Jef
ferson and others. " - ' '
Kow, it so happens that, in George
Washington's time, slavery existed only in
Georgia, South and North Carclinaj Vir
ginia, Maryland and the' Northern 'Stales.
If he and Jefferson and ether fathers of
the Republic, had been opposed to its ex
tensian, they vvcu'd Lave' confined it to
those States and the 'four'" millions of
slaves now in the Union vroold all be Jfu
the five above named States. Were' such
the case to-day were Alabama, Florida,
Louisiana, Mississippi, Arkansas, Texas,
Missouri, Tennessee and Kentucky free

Washington and JefiVrson been suc'i men
as Fremont and Seward,) and the four mil
lions of negroes, now scattered over all
that vast territory penned up in the South

more than probable", the result of which
would be the annihilation of the black
The post says that it is strange the
South cannot see whence they are driving
and cease there efforts to extend thid dan
gerous institution into other territory.
V ery Strang., isn't it? Strange, indeed.
that they cau't see that to scatter these ne
groes would increase the danger of a re
volt, whilst to pen them up would prevent
discontent and insurrection? What would
the post think of the captain of a vessel
with a mutinous crew, who would 'refuse
to divide his tacn and put three or four on
board of half a'dozeu different vessels, on
the ground that they would endanger all
the ships, whilst keeping them together
would save all '
We are reasoning now on the Post's
supposition that a negro is a white man,
and would revolt without a white mans in
stigation and assistance- a thing as mor
ally impossible as for .the. woman of Kmv
England or the apprentices of New York to
revolt.murdtr their husbands and masters.
Hut the Posts arguments are simply ridic
ulous not sdthe Tribune's Its reasonings,if
the following paragraph will bear the name
arc the ravings of a traitor a deep black
hearted scoundrel; one whose neck de
serves the halter as richly as ever villain's
or traitor's Lead descrred decapitation:
" The South must learn that people who
live upon the edge of a yolcanoc are lia
ble at any moment to be overwhelmed with
its eruptions, But instead of seekisg safe

more territory to be subject to the taskmas

insurrections. rThey should be taught bet
ter. Although they may hve Leleived in
tbe sweet assurance of on Everett, that no
cause would so readily enlist him as a sol
