Being in tbe Doctor'- room ono day when she came in explosive with wrath and indignation, I remarked, after she went out : "What a strange, hard, nnfeminine creature yonr matron i ! I wonder abe doc? not make you fairly nervoua with her addreoA and peculiarities." "Oh, indeed 1" he laughed ; that would UI befit me. I couldn't manage the hoa pital at all without her. She in fire, wa ter, earth, and air to the whole concern. Her bark ia worse than her bite; and with all her repollant ways she has the tender heart of a woman, I have seen her cry over many a poor follow; but tnind you, ahe never let tear blind her from seeing when something than tears will better avail him. Moreover, thro' her influence she obtains many valua ble donations to the honpiUl." After a moment be added, "You know she be long to one of the firet families of Bal timorethe famous book publishers ?" "No," I answered. "I knew her name was CounesA, but I never thought of AANoriating her with thoAe of Baltimore. But that l-ing so, how do you reconcile her w ay and uiauner aith the refining and cultivating influences that must have been ber inheritance by birth and surrounded her early days at leant?" " Ah, a to that, she has a hiMory. If you can get her to tell you that you w ill have tbe key to tbe whole. I learn ed it by the merest chance; but you be ing a woman, onght by some subtle, womanly tact or sympathy to be ena bled to get it honefctly.

Olin, brolher of Araham B., was born in Shaflsbury in 1800, and graduated at Williams College in 183G, was prominont lawyer in Troy, N. Y., and was Rocorder of that city from 1818 to 1852. He died in 1854, aged forty- five years. Henry Olin removed from Sbaftsbury about 1788, and settled in the town of Leicester, Addison County, where he continued to reside until th spring pro ceeding his death, and then removed to Salisbury, in the same county, waere he remaiucd until hi death. His early education had been some what limited, and it is stated, that when he first-settled in Leicester, "on ac count of -bis nn wieldly size and awk ward manner, the people of the town 0f Leicester in the General Assembly town from 17'J3, to, and including the session of 1821, with the exception of the years 1805, 181C, 1820 and 1821. . When ho first beoame a member of the Lcgiulure, it is said, that the sound of his own voice would sometimes so em barrass him that ho would be unable to proceed. In reference to this, the fol lowing anecdote is related of him: Some question, the matter of which is now forgotten, being before the house for discussion, Mr. Olin arose from his seat and commenced, ""Mr. Speaker j aris0 for information." and then stop "Mr. Speaker, I very much rejoice that the gentleman from Leicester should ariso for such a praiseworthy object; as 1 know of no man in this house who needs information more than he does." Mr. Olin was a member of the Con stitutional Conventions of 1814, 1822, and 1828. No amendments to the Con stitution were adopted by either of these Conventions, except that of 1828, and the only amendment adopted by them was ono in reference to the cat ; uralization of foreigners, and which now constitutes tho first article of amendment to the Constitution aspub- lihbed in the Genoral Statutes. In IsOl, he wa elected one of the Judge in the Addison County Court, and was re-elected in 1802, 1803, 1804, 1805 and 180f, and was elected Chief 1 Judge of th same Court in 1807, and Associate Judae in 1808 and 1809. In 1810 he was again elected Chief Judge, and was annually re-elected nntil 1824, when he retired from the bench, after twenty-three year of service, fifteen of which were as Chief Judge.

Oliu was a Jeflomon Republican, and won afterwards a Whig, and in religion a tealou Methodist. 11 is jxipularity at home roxo so high, that at one election be had neariy the unanimous vote of his townsmen for Ciovernor. "In his physical pioportions, he was almost gigautic. lis waa the oracle of the community, and his conversation the charm of any company in which he happened to be. When passing a neighbor's house on a summers day, he would stop in tho steed, or under som convenient shado, his wagon, which would at once be surrounded by the family, men, women and children, and, without alighting, ho would toll them a few favorite stories, aud pass on. Many a man has thus been beguiled of his day's work; many a woman has suffered her nearly cooked dinner to spoil, and many a child forgotton its playfulness. While bis hearers wero bui'bting with laughter, the Judge would remain composed, and apparently atloep, but as thi Uughtor began to subsido in others, it begau to operate in himself. There would bo an open ing of the eyes, broad, beaming with fun, then an internal shakiug of the body by two or three long suppressed convulsions, which did not move the muscles of his face, and the matter was ended. Gov. Olin died at Salisbury on the 18th of August, 1837, iu the sevonty first year of his age. His ashes repose in tho grave-yard of Leicester among the people that loved him so well, and whom he so faithfully served. Gov. Olin was twice married, first to Li Richardmn, ia 1788. By hor ho had eleven children, four sons and sev en daughters. One of whom was tho Rev. Stephen Olin, D. D., L L. D., an eminent Methodist Clergyman, and President of Wesleyan University, at Middlutown, Conn. His second wife was, at the time of her marriago to Gov Olin, a widow, whose maiden name was Polly Sanford. She survived her, hus band, and was living in 18G0. u t.ilb fom rrnjr rim. At eight yeaes old I was as wide awake and saw as many things between daybreak aud nino o'clock at night, as any boy in the country; and wa with al fend of tolling quite a good deal more. My mother sometimes suspect ed me of great powers of exaggeration, but, as looking into ray statements, she could never detect me in a direct lie, was little likely to receive the correct tion which I was often conscious of de serving. This came to me in an unex pected manner, aud tho way I was help ed out of the lost and worst falsehood I ever told, has always been a mystery to me. I was loitering in tbe kitchen one morning where my mother was at work making tarts, when tarts suggesting cake, and cake eggs, she turned to me and said: "I don't see a your new-fan gled chickens turn out any better than the old one do." Here my mother touched a tender spot. I had bought tbe chickens with my own money, and on the positive acsurauce that they were magnificent layers. "Ye they do," I said not waiting to think what my liabty vindication might cost me; yes they do, they lay splendidly, I found netit with ever so many in it this morn ing." "Then why didn't you bring them in?" "I had no banket, and then I for got it; but there' a hole there, under the cow' rack, and I counted twenty three eggs." That was a stunner, but my mother did not drop her rolling-pin nor Lrive anv siiii that ahe discredited my assertion. She only said quietly, "Take a bahket, Bridget, and go with Harry to the barn." I took tb banket, and marched out, half a rod ahead of Bridget, straight to the cow's rack. I did not expect to find anytbig, but I muM go ahead until I Lad to stop; that was always my way So I went to the rack, when, ante enough, there wa th bole, and thrust ing my hand, I found aa egg. I pat it in th bahket and tried again an other, and another, untU twenty-thre and no more ! Never wa profounder aAtouiaLaenl in u& Lttle brst,and th w ont of it waa, it had to be kept there. It wa a big charge of powder ia a small rock. I wa terribly afraid it woo Id explode, but it didn't- I took th gg to tny KtotLtr, and went out whittling my mother saying to herself, dear oul! "How foolish it to doubt lum!" Poor roe ! bow I ach 1 to cotifea the fiction f r the ak of telling the stran ger truth 1 I had not the couikg to do , T I 11 M I ,." r Annum, in AIvaAi'a, thi.

Major Hcratio Allen, th engineer of the New York and Erie Railroad, giva the following account of th first trip made by a iooomotivo on thi conti nent: "When was it? Where was it? And who awakened its energies and direct ed its movements?

The circumstance which led to my be ing on the road are theao: "The road had been built in the sum mer, tbe structure was of hemlock tim- er, and roila of largo dimensions, pla ced far apart.

"As I paseod my hand on the tholtle valve handle, I was undocidod whether I would move slowly or with a great de gree of speed; but believing that tho road would provo safe, and preferring that if wa did go down, to go hand soniuly and without any evidence of ti midity, I Btartod with considerable ve locity, passed tho curve ovor tho creek safely, and was soon out of hearing of the vast assemblage.
