The Pot of gold—A Cute Story. Deacon Bancroft, though a very good man ia the main, and looked up to with re spect by all the inhabitants of the village of Ceuterville, was rumored to have, in Yankee parlauce, 'a pretty sharp eye to the main chance' a peculiarity from which deacons are not always exempt. In worldly niatten he was decidedly well to do, having inherited a Cue farm from his father, which was growing yearly mor val uable. It might bo supposd. that, under these circumstances, the deacon, who was fully able to do so, would have fouud a help-meet to share his house and name. But tbt) deacon wua wary. Matrimony, was to him in some measure a mutter-o'-money, aud it was bis firm resolve not to marry unless he could thereby euhauco his wordly prosperity. Unhappily, the little village ot Ceuterville, and the towus in the immediate vicinity contained tew who were qualified in Ibis important p. riculsr, and of those there were probably none with whom the deacon ' suit wouid have prosper ed. . 80 it happened that year after year pass ed away, uutil Deacou Baucroft was in tba prime of life forty five or thereabouts aur, still unmarried, aud in all human prob ability likely to remain so. Deacon Baucroft . nearest neighbor was a widow. The widow Wells, who had passed through one matrimouial experieuce, was some three or four yean younger than the Deacon Ban croft, bhe was 6iiil quite a comely woman. Uufortuuately, the hue Mr. Wells had uot been able to leave her sufficient to tuako her iudependent of the world. All that she posaeobed waa the email, old-fashioned hoabo io whl'.:h she lived, and 1'OiaU amount r money, wnicn wasinsHL'ant to sunnort I to be clnsed aa 'productive' of anything but nuschier. The widow was therefore obliged to take three or four boarders, to eke oot the scan ty income, which of course imposed upon her considerable labor aud anxiety. It ia not surprising, then, that nnder these circumstances she should now and then have bethought herself of a second marriage, as a method of bctterltii her condition. Or flgain, need we esteem it a special wonder, if in her reflections opoti this point, she should have cast her eyes nnon her neighbor, Deacon Bancroft. The deacon, as we have already saidi Was in flourishing circumstances. He would bo able to maintain a wife in great comfort; and being one of the chief personages in the village, could accord her a prominent social position. Somo sagacious person has observed, nowever, mat it takes two to make a match, a fact to be seriously considered ; for in the present case it was exceedingly doubtful whether the worthy deacon, even if he had known the favorable opinion of his next neighbor, would have been inclin ed to propose changing her name to Ban croft, unless, indeed, a suitable motive was brought to bear upon him. Hero was a chance for finessing. One evening after a day of fatiguing. la bor, the widow Wells sat at the tire in the sitting room, with her feet resting on tho fender, ' If I ever am so situated as not to have to work so hard,' she mnrmured, ' I shall be happy, Its a hard life keeping borders, If I wua tfUlr so w ell off as Deacou Ban- crofi.' Still the widow kept up her thinking, and by-and-by her face brightened np. She bad an idea, which she resolved to put into execution at the very earliest moment. What it was the reudcr will discover in the sequel. ' Henry,' suid she to her son the next morning, ' l want you to stop at Deacon Bancroft's as you go along to school, and ask him if he will Call aud see me in the course of the morning or afternoon, just as he finds it most convenient.' Deacon Bancroft was not a little surpris ed at the summons. However, about 11 o'clock he called in. The widow had got on the dinner and had leisure to sit down. She appeared a little embarrassed. 'Henry told me that you would like to see me,' he commenced. ' Yes, Deacon Bancroft, I do, but I am very much afraid yon will think very strange of it at leust what I have to say to yon.' The deacon very politely promised not to be surprised, although at the same time his curiosity was visibly excited. ' Suppose,' said the widow, casting down hereyee ' mind, I am only supposing the case suppose a person should find a pot of gold pieces iu their cellar, would the law have a right to touch it, or would it belong to them.' Tho deacon pricked up his 6ars. A pot of jjol'i pieces, widow ? Why, unquestionably, the law would have noth ing to do with it.' 'And the one who formerly owned the house, couldn't come forward aud claim it. could he, deacon,' inquired tho widow, fur ther, with apparent anxiety. No, madam, certainly not when the house was disposed of, everything weut with it, as a matter ot course 4 1 am glad to hear it, deacon. You won't think strange of the question, bnt it happened to occur to my mind, and I thought I would like to have it satisfied.' Certainly, widow, certainly,' said the deacon, abstractedly. 'And deacon, 83 you are here, I hope you'll stop to dinner with us. It will be ready punctually at twelve.' ' Well, no,' said the deacou, ' I'm oblig ed to ye, but they'll be expecting me at home.' At any rate, deacon,' said the widow, taking a steaming mince pie from the oven, 1 yon won't object to taking a piece of my mince pie; you roust know that I rather pride myself on my mince pies.' The warm pie sent forth such a delicious odor, that the deacon was .sorely tempted, and ufter saying, Well, really,' with the ntention of refusing, beunistied by saving, ' On the whole, I guess I will, aa it looks so nice.' Th( widow waR really a good cook, and the deacou ate with much gusto the gen erous slice the widow cut for him; and, af ter a little more chatting upon important subjects, withdrew in some mental per plexity. ' V as it possible,' thought be, ' that the widow, could really have found a pot of gold in her cellar? She did not say so, to be sure, but why should she show so much anxiety to know as to the proprietorship of treasure thus found, if she had not hap- Eened upon some f " To be Bure, bo far as is knowledge extended, there waa no one who occupied tho house would be in the least likely to lay up such an amount of gold; but the bouse was oue hundred ana lifty years old, at tho very least, and un doubtedly had many occupants, nf which lie knew uotuu.g. it might be, after all. The widow's earnest dedire to have him think it was only curiosity, likewise gave additional probability to the supposition. ' I will wait aud watch,' thought the deacon. It so happened that Deacon Bancroft was ono of tho directors in a Savings' In stitution, situated in the next town, and accordingly used to ride over there once or twice a month, to attend meetings of the board. On the next occasion of this kind, widow Wells seut over to know if be could carry her over with him, as she bad a tittle busi ness to attend to there. The request was readily accorded. Ar rived ia town, Mrs. Weils requested to be set down at the bank. Ha, ha ? ' thought the deacon; ' that, means something,' " ' He said nothing, however, but determin ed to come back, and find out, as he could readily from the cadiier, what business she bad with the bault. , Tbe widow tripped ioto tie ojSce, Jopkt inj verj npnphaiaiit. 1 Can yoq gi (e'me Email bJUs far a fir. qouar goia piefief ' r.Re inqaireq. ' With rleasere, was tie rply. Bj- ft. va,' asii tit, XU hzx.t is ia quite a flourishing condition, Is it not?' None in the state, on a better footing.' was the prompt response. ' Yod receive deposits, do yon notr 'Yes, madam, we are receiving them every day.' 'Do yon receive as high as as five thou sand doll-.'s ? ' 'No,' said the cashier with some snrprisej ' or rather we do not allow interest on so large a sum. O118 thousand dollars ia our limit. - Did yod know of any one who ' ' It is of no consequence,' said the widow hurriedly; 'I only asked for enriosity. By the way, did you say bow much interest Jou allowed on such deposits as come with in your limit ? ' ' Five per cent, madam.' 'Thank you, I only asked for curiosily. Whut a beautiful morning it is ?' And the widow tripped lightly ont. Shortly afterwards the deacon entered. How's business new, Mr. Cashier?' ho asked. ' About as usual.' ' Had any new deposits lately? ' ' None of any magnitude.' ' I brought over a lady this morning who seemed to have business with you.' ' The widow Wells ? ' 'Yes' 'Do you know,' asked tlio caohier, wheth er she bas money left her lately V 'JNono that I know of, said the deacon. pricking up his ears. 'Why? Did she de posit any ?' 2o : but she inquired whether we received deposits as high as five thousand dollars.' 'Indeed !' cjuculated the deacon. 'Was that all she carae for ?' ho inquired a mo ment afterward.' No : she exchanged a gold Dieco for some bills.' 'Ha I' pondered tbe deacon, reflectively. 'did she give any reason for inquiring?' JSo, sue said she only asked from curios ty.' The deacon left tbe bauk id deeo thought. He came to the conclusion that th's 'curi osity' only veiled a deeper motive. He no longer entertained a doubt that the widow had actually found a pot of gold lu her cel lar, and appearances seemed to iudicate that its probable value was equal to five thousand dollars. The gold piece which she had exchanged at the bauk appeared to confirm una story. 'I rather think,' said the deacon compla cently, 'I can see into a millstone about at fur as most people a statement, the lit eral truth of which I defy any one to ques tion, though, aa to the prime fact of people's being able to see into a millstone at all, doubts have now and then intruded them selves upon my mind. Next Sunday the widjw Wells appeared at church in a new and stylish bonnet, which led to some such remarks as these 'How much vauitv some people have to be sure 1' 'How a woman that has to keep boarders for a living, can afford to dash out with such a bonnet is more tnan 1 can ten 1 x snouiti think she was old enough to know better.' This last remark was made by a lady just six months younger than the widow, whose attempts to catch a husband had hitherto proved utterly unavailing. ' I suppose,' continued the same young lady, she is trying to catch a second hus band with her finery. Before I would con descend to such means I'd I'd drown my self.' In this last amiable speech the young la dy had unwittingly hit upou the true mo tive. The widow was intent upon catching Deacon Bancroft, mid fche indulged iu a costly bonnet, not because she supposed he would be caught with finery, but because this would strenghten in his mind tbe idea that she had stumbled upon hidden wealth. The widow had calculated shrewdly, and tbe display bad the effect she anticipated. Monday afternoon, Ueacon Uancrolt found an .errand that called him over to the widow's. It chanced to be about tea time. He was importuned to stay to tea, and, somewhat to his surprise, actually did. The polite widow, who knew the de.v con's weak point, brought on one of her best mince pies, a slice or whica uer guest partook of with zest. - You'll tafce another piece l Know - said she, persuasively. ' Keally, 1 am ashamed,' said tne uea con, and he passed his plate. ' The fact is,' he said, apologetically, ' your pies are so nice I don't know where to stop.' 'Do you call these Mice,' said the widow modestly, ' I only call them common. I can make mince pies, when I set out to. but this time I didu't have such good luck as usual.' ' I shouldn't want any tetter,' said the deacon, emphatically. Then I hope if you lino them, you'll drop in to tea often. We ought to be more neighborly, Deacon uancroti.' Deacon Bancroft assented, and he mcaut what ho said. The fact is the deacon be gan to think the widow was a very charm ing woman, bho waa very coiueiy, ana she was such an excellent cook I Besides, he had no doubt in bis own mind that she was worth a considerable sum of money. What objection could there be to her be coming Mrs. Bancroft? He brought this auestion before her one eveuiug. The widow blushed, professed to be greatly sur prised in fact she bad never thought of tbe thing in ner lite out, on me wnoie, she bad thought highly of the deacon, and, to cut short tbe matter, accepted him. A month afterwards she was installed as mistress of the deacon's large bouse, some what to the surprise of the village people, who could not conceive how she bad bro'ght him over. Some weeks after the ceremony the dea con vestured to inquire about the pot of gold which she had found in the cellar. ' Pot or gold 1' sue cxclaimea 10 surprise,; I know of none.' 'But, said, the deacon, disconcerted; yon know you asked tne about whether the law could claim It,' '0. lort deacon, ouly asked from cwioi- ilv. n4 in that the reason you) wade in quiries at the bank f Certainly. .

At the tui of tti$ ViCB, tie ciSqi I latei, as a closing copscqeration, ' After all, she makes good mine pics ! ' It gives me pleasure to state that the union between the deacon and the widow proved a very happy one, although to the end of bis life, he uevcr could qnite make up his mind about ' That Pot of Oold.' New Government Expedition. The sailing of Lieut. J. M. Brook t, of the U. S. Navy, in the Star of the West for California, is introductory to one of the important cveuts of the day. He goes to survey a route from San Francisco to China, by the way of Japan. Lieut.

The route to bo examined includes the vicinity of a large number of the islands in the Japan Seas, and in tbe Pacific, rocky reefs, aud innumerable shoals, and other hidden and unknown dangers. Tbe object of the present expedition is the preparation of au accurate chart of the best and most secure passage between the two shores. Lieut. B. was the fir it officer to survey several of the islands, and his ex perieuce will be most valuable. His chart of the islund of Niphon ia a standard work, and is nscd by every navigator. lie takes with 4iim, as clerk, a native of Japan, who, being wrecked, -was brought to this conntry some rears since, nud has received an excellent education. We understand that tho Navy Depart ment consider this one of the most impor tant expeditions that has left our shores for many years, and the scientific world looks anxiously forward to its results. Who was "Josius?" Col. Benton, in his "Thirty Yeard' View" abridgment, gives his epiuion of who was the "Man in the Iron Mask," iu the following terse and smooth style: Before enlightened writers Ijad- thrown darkness on the authorship of Junius, it was well conceded that there was but one man in England, or the world, who united in himself all tbe qualities of head heart and temper, all the incidents of political and personal life, which the writiug of those letters required; but one man who had such power to drive tho Engliah language, such knowledge of men and things, such amplitude of information, such lofty and daring spirit, such inducement to publish hia thoughts aud conceal his name, au ora torical tamo already so great as to set him above the assumption of that cf Junius, great as it was. That oue mail was Lord Chatham, then old and out of favor with the King and dominant parties; relegated (by bis peerage) to that "Hospital of In curables," the nouso of Lords, whence no patriotic voice could reach the Commons of Lngland ; retired to his couutry seat Hayes, and all visitors shut out; discontented, de spairing, restless, and Beeing no way to reach the people but through the press, aud by the means of appeals; bold to audacity, patriotic to temerity, end tbe more impres sive because shrouded in tho mystery of an unknown origin, bo stood Lord Chatham and Junius iu the latter part of the centu ry in which they lived, convertible charac ters, identical iu person." We learn from' one of our exchanges that tbe stockholders of the company of Wheeler & Wilson's Sewing Machiue at Bridgeport have declared a dividend of fif ty' per cent. Ou the first of January last, a dividend of twenty percent, was declared, and a year ago one of forty per cent. The capital stock is $190,000, aud tho shares are now at a premium of three hundred per cent. The Company manufacture fifty machines a day, and keep 250 men in em ployment. They pay the patentee of one particular combination in their machine ten dollars for each machine they build. Ac cording to this statement, if it is not exag gerated, it is -the most profitable property in (he State, aud-the advancers of the capi tal will Boon have their inveatmeats return ed to them in full. But the profits of an employment of this kiud are not permanent. At tbe rate ma chines are turned out, every family iu the land will soon bo supplied, and the demand cease. There will be no constaut demand as in the case of perishable articles; hence there can be no permanency in such im mense profits, For a permauent invest- meut, three hundred per cent, is a high price. Let the owners of the stock rejoice in their present succesa, for they will, by and by, have to take up with a diminished return. Q irls. There are two kinds of girls : one is tbe kiud that appears the best abroad, the girls that are ready for parties, rides, visits, balls, Ac, and whose chief delight is in such things; the other is the kind that ppears the best at home, the girls that are useful and cheerful in the dinning rom, the sick-room, and all tbe precints of home. Tbey differ widely in character. Ono is often a torment at home, the other is a blessing. One is a moth; consuming every thing about her; and the other is a sun beam, mspinng life and gladness along her pathway. Now, it does not necessarily fol low that there shall be two classes of girls. The right education will modify both a lit tle and unite their characters in one. JOHM DSAN AND MIS MaRV ANN- A New York correspondent of tbe Boston Gazette writes: You remember the story about "John Deaa and his Mary Ana" (Boker.) poor girl, her roluauce is converted into a mis erable reality.

' Jt is rupoi'te'jTtbttt the tj"oliniiJu$ MrS. Cunningham has married Eckel, Sun Stroke—A Touching Case. A case recently occurred in Cincinnati, ao touching la its details that we must re late it in full, A little boy between twelve and fifteen years of age, a member of a poor fumily, had been out in search of employment. He found none; but way off In a part of the city distant from his home, came acroM a number of workmen demolishing a house. As be con'd obtain no employment and take no money home, the thought truck him that ho might gather fuel lroui tne ruiua, and take a load of it home to save expendi ture from the scanty family treasury. He gathered a heavy load of shingles, and se curing them in a bundle, threw them across his back and started homewards. The load was heavy, the weather W-as hot, but be persevered. While passing along Sixth street, he was overcome by the heat, and fell prostrate on the sidewalk. A crowd instantly gath ered around him, some crying out tt? do this, and some that, and all doiug nothing. No, not all. There waa one, an elderly gontle u.an, a kind-hearted old "batch," uotcd alike for his cleverness and" popular versa, who silently proceeded to the relief of the lad. Getting down upon tbe pavement he laid the boy's bead in his lap, poured cold water slowly over bis forehead, and bathed the limbs. He continued this process until signs of returning life were exhibited in deep moans. The Samaritan, stilt holding the boy's head oa bis lap, bathed the fore head and funned the tortured features. Gradually tbe boy's eyes resumed their na tural appearanco, and he became conscious. "Get a little brandy," said tbe Samari tan "All be wants now is a little stimu lant." The liquor" was procured, and" thM glass put to the lips of the poor boy. He gent ly pushed it aside. "No, no," said he, "I can't driuk brandy My mother would be angry with tne if I did UP "But you must take it, my lad," replied the el Jerly geutlemao. "It will give you strength." "I can't," was his reply. "It rmmed my father! Ilia earnestness was touching. -lie re sisted all persuasion to touch tbe liquor. but finally a small quantity, it being daem ed essential, wa3 forced down hia throat. He soon revived sufficiently to go home in an express wagon. Digestion. Digestion is that process wltich extracts from our rood the elements or growtn, re pair add sustenance. 11 tne digestion is imperfect the health of the body becomes imperfect in a few hours; add if by any means digestion ceases altogether, soon af ter a hearty meal, a man will as" certainly die within a tew hours, and sometimes al most as suddenly as if a bullet were shot through his heart. Any great emotion of passion or pleasure, soon after eating, caus es death, hence, no highly exciting or mo mentous news should be communicated, even to tbe healthiest, let alonedthe sick and feeble, after a full repast. Sometimes the wisest of us will eat too much ; for an occasional indiscretion of this kind, two or three spoonfuls of strong vine gar afford relief to some persons, but ag gravate the evil in a few. The better plan is, to tafce a long leisure wait iu tbe open air, with a pleasant associate. Keep on walking until entire relief is experienced, aud eat no more of anything until tho next morning, so as to allow the overtaxed sto mach to recover its tone, vigor and elas ticity. If we become conscious of a Burwtt after QinUk aud from that or auy other Cadse. st walk is impracticable, a good substitute is found, iu standing erect with the clothing removed, except the stockings, mouth clos ed, and robbing the regian of stomach, and and for a foot aronnd it, with the open hand. Very great relief is often afforded, even serious cases, within half an hour, by vigo rous manipulation of this sort, taking for breakfast, next morning, a cap of some Eind of hot drink and a single piece of dry bread; and for dinner a bowl of sonp with bread crust, and nothing else for that day. The stomach should always be allowed ex tra rest after overwork. ' Hall's Journal of Health. Blackbkiuiy Wine. There is no wine equal to the blackberry wine when properly made, either in flavor or for medicinal pur poses, aud all persons who can conveniently do so, should manufacture enough for their own use every year, as it is invaluable in sickness as a tonic, and nothing is a bet ter remedy for bowel diseases. We there fore give the receipt for making it, and bar ing tried it ourselves we apeak aaviscaiy on the subject : "Measure your berries and bruise tnem ; to every gallon add ng one quart of boiling water.

Mr. Martin, ct Burlington, Maine, a biaSi of decided talent, and worth, Was somewhat noted fof 1,1s e CCntricity and humor, Which occasionally showed themselves in his public ministrations. In tho time of tbe great land speculat'ont in Maine, several of hia prominent parish oners add church members were carried away with the mania for buying lutiiTjef tracts. Mr. Martia resisted his speculating spirit, and more than onee rebuked it in his sermons. One evening at his regular week ly meeting, he noticed that several of his prominent men was absent, aud he knew at once that they had gone to Bangor to aU tend a great land sale. After a hymn had been sung, he said : 'Brother Allen, will you lead ns inprayer V Some one spoka and said : 'He has gone to Bangor.' Mr. Martin not disconcerted in tbe least, called out : 'Deacon Barber, lead ns in p'rayer.' 'He has gone to Bangor,' answer ed another, Again the pastor asked : 'Squire Clarke, will you pray f Tbe Squire has gone to Bangor,' said etrtSe" one ; and Mr Martin being now Eatisfied, looked round upon the little assembly as if tbe same reply would probably be given to every similar request, aud veiy quietly said t .
