Deacon Griswold (aid it was a pity thai to btudsome a woman as tbe Widow Junes should be guilty of such au impro priety; aud Enquire Jeukins (wbo had got ibe mitten from the widow wbeu she was Miss Sally White) remarked, as be pulled op bis dicky, that It was strange bow tome folks should ever have beeu received Into good society. Mr. Dame, for tbe hundredth time, exprtwied ber dotertuiaatloa of making the Widder ktbained ol bemelf, aud tier viaitom, one and all. declared ibat alio wouldn't be a mite to blame! In the midst of it, tbe door wa Ibrowu open, and Ibe unfortunate object of all these remarks entered the room, followed by a fine-looking, graceful jooug man, wbo, to use tbe whispered exprcsaion of Mrs. itubinson la Sain Milen' wife couldu't keep hi eyes tfl' that flirting huzzy!

Yes, I allers bavo kept good company, and I sllers kalkerlale to! said tbe host' es, casting a sbsrp look under the brown eyelaabes of tha Widow Jones. No doubt ol it! returned that lady, good lai inoredly and I am glad of It. 1 do dislike meeting people wbobave made themselves notorious by their evil ways! That's a very kooiI Idol, Mr. Jones, il w ouy practice it, but if we are bad our selves we have to bo iu bad company all the time. Very true, Mis. Dame; you seem to understand the nature of such a case ex actly. Mrs. Dame felt tbe point of the remarki but 6 ho only reddened, and continued : Mrs. Jones, wbeo any one iu our church la guilty of onbebavlng, do you kuow what Is done with 'em? That depends on circumstances. Well, allow me to ask if you would consider it properout for any onmarried woman to let a young man hug and kiss ber in broad dayligbt.andalore folks too? Wbat mukes Ibe difference, Mrs. Dame whether it is daylight, or not? It isn't tbe best people that do tbeir evil dcedt in thodark, la It?

Mr, Felix Meier, an Iugeuloua mechan ic of tbli city, bat constructed a clock wbicb, in the number, variety and accur aoy of Iti performances, eclipses tbe far- famed Strauburg clock, which it resem bles in some particulars. It wat exhibit ed ou Saturday at the residence of Mr, Meier, 477 Sherman itreet, to repreinta tivei of tbe press and a lew specially Invited gueett. Tbo clock stand 18 fee1 tn height aud it enclosed in a black wal nut frame, elaborately, euved and orna mented. It 1 called tbe American National and Astronomical clock. Very appropriately the crowning figure it that of Liberty, npon a cauopy over the head of Washington, wbo It seated on t marble dome. The canopy I supported by eolumus on either tide. Uu niches below at the four cornert of tbe clock are four human flguree repre scnting infancy, youth, manhood, and age. Each of these figures hat a bell lo one band and a hammer lu tbe otber. The niches are supported by angelt with flaring torches, aud over tbe center ii tbe figure of Father Time. The atrlk log of (hit clock it iu interesting perfor mance. At ibe qtitrter hour Ibe figure of tbe infant strikes itt tiny bell; at tbe half hour the youth strikes itt bell of louder tone; at tbe third quarter the man strikes bis bell and at hour tbe greybeard. Then tbe figure of Time Kept out and tolls tbe boor. Then two small figurei throw open doonin the column! on either tide of Waiblogton, and tbere ii a pro cestlon ot the President! of tbe United States. As Ibe processloa moves Wash ington riea aod salutes each figure at it puses, and il in turn laletet him. Tbey move through tbe door on tbe otber tide, ind it it then closed behind them. Tbe figure! of tbt President! are pretty fair likenettet of tbe perion tbey are intend ed to represent. Tbit procttaion move to tbe aceompanimen of moaic played by tbe clock itself. The tsutic machinery i capable of playing several ah, eipecial- ; i natiooal aad Mtriutlc air. Another iBtereatinif feature of tbe clock j, tII orrery wbicb tbowi tbe movement 1 0f ibe earib, moon and planet, allrfect ' tad controlled by the machinery of tbe I clock. Tbere are dial, which ibow tbe boar, minute and teoood in Detroit, Wahintou, New York, bae Franciaco, Loodoe.

I remember when I wat but a boy that a man got into tbe rapids here, having been carried down lo a boat, wbicb wat broken to pieces. He bad tbe good for. tune to be dashed on a rock, lo which he cluug. It was at tbe height of the season August if I recollect aud be clung there for fully thirty-six bourt. Every body strestned out of the botcli and tbo village; (he bank of the river, particular ly on tbit tide, were thronged with poo- pie aoxlout to do toineihlug to tave him. Dozni of plant were tuggetted; tome attempted, but all failed. Thousands of dollars were offered to anyone wbo would rtscue bim. The deaperale situation of tbe man bad beeu telegraphed all over the country, and every train brought crowd of pataciiger hither lo witness It with their own eyes. He wai encouraged by iboutt from tbe banks, but whether be could understand anything said ! doubtful. Tbe world it said to be tympathetio. It ii, or appean to be uotympatbelic, be cause tho object fur wbicb sympathy ii asked it abstract, Wbcn it It tangible, visible, all is changed. There was au exemplification. This poor wretch could be seen. He wtsan ordinary uneducated man; but be was a man, and the brother hood and sisterhood of ibe raco went out to bim iu pity and lntento eagerness to rescue him. Women of fashion, Ilate clubmen, selfish worldling", grew palo run they watched (he unhappy wretch, to vivid was tbeir sympathy. Many persons tat up all night looking acrost tbe teething, roaring watert at tho imall dark figure ttlll clinging to the rock. The morning came; renewed ef fort were made, but tbey alt miscarried. The crowd bad increased; it wat im mense. Everybody wat excited. Teart were in the women's eyes; tbe pallor gleamed through the rouge of aome of tbeir chceki. Can't something be done? Must (be poor fellow perish belore our facet? I there no way to rescue him? Socb questions were incessantly asked; but alait no reply could be given. Tbo man bad good courage aud great itreogtb. Ho clung to (he rock witb the desperation of a dying ton). To loeo bit hold was to be dashed over tbe cataract. Apparatus and contrivances arrived from Buffalo. New experimonlt and new failures. Hoarse sbonta still rang across tbe rapidt to bold on, (o be of good heart. Tbe stoutest heart (bat ever Ibrobbod could not gripe that rock forever. It wat wonderful bow he bad endured. A fresh idea bad come lo tbe minds of ball a dozen mechanics. Tbey were laboring to throw out a hawser every mnscle was strained ; every eye was beul upon their work. Suddenly tbe mau slipped away, lie wai exhausted; be tbrew up hi be dashed toward tbe cataract. A low groan as from one breait quaked through the throng; Ihe tbouiand shivered with ter ror. A black object lor a moment longer in Ibe bell of Ibe waters, and then dissppeared forever, Tbere was an agony of relief. No one moved; no one spoke for a while. All looked lu tbe di rection where the figure bsd been swal lowed op. It was tbe enchautmcnt of terror; it wai tbe chill of trsgedy distinct' ly wrought which froze everyone for (be moment to the spot. The old resident be baa lived bere 40 yean layi that on an average about tix pertoni are carried over tbe fall every year, and that four out ol the tlx are wholly or partly iutoxicaled and lose Ibeir live by carelestnett or retklcinien in rowing above tbe rapidt, going beyond tbe line of danger. But for liquor, not more than two livei, be tayt would be lott annually. CilVlMU AUV1CK TO A HAK.
