Written for the Telegraph. The Wanderer. BY CLARA CRUM. Night, and the autumn winds moaning Rustled the dried leaves, and sweeping Wild the bare branches among. O'er my lost joys I was weeping, Vainly for comfort was seeking, Crying, 0, Father I how long ? Low, came, a sound as of knocking, But I thought'twas the winds only mocking, Till a wild wail of grief, met mine ear ; - Then swift sped my feet.tho' with trembling, My fright very poorly dissembling, And hastily dashing a tear, I opened the door, and was gazing On what at thai hour was atnuzing; A woman stood cowering in fear, A babe on her bosom was sleeping. While she in a voice, hoarse with weeping, Sought shelter for one she loved dear. From bondngc that mother was fleeing ; And the hue of her skin was revealing, She was born of the African race ; And as her wet garments were drying, Her story to tell she was trying, While Itari fell like rain A'er her face. Poor wanderer 1 my own griefs forgeting, t soothed, and in deeds more endearing, Befriended the sorrowing oiic. And I felt that the poor creature's blessing To me was more worth possessing; Than all else under the sua. For it tanght nic that not selfish sorrowing, And trouble iu future oft borrowing, Would best please my Father above. That the humblest on his footstool moving , My dp something', the'tlmo' well iinprovaig, To prove that his teachings they love. Ashtabula, July, SCO. Speak Pleasantly. We hove read somewhere, that "Language was given to u that we might speak pleasant things to each other" ; but, alas I how often it is used for other and baser purposes ! A kind word, or even an affectionate look, is bulm to the wonoded, fluttering heart, when It turns toward you for consolation in the hour of misery ! Were we to moderate our voice to a wlverj tore, and think ouly of tbe good wo ee struggling' up in those who surround us, brothoraand sisters in humaut. tj, how much like Paradise would thi wonrld become A barsh, illy-advUed ex pression or objuration has crushed many an acpii ing spirit wounded to the death many a uoQf soij- -and the utterors ha passed on tho'r way, uncouscions, perhaps, of the evil they have doue. Let us aim, tnen, at pleasent speech i for it U tbe language of tba angles, and has more virtue iq it than win of Cypres, or balm of G ilea 4. A Dilemma How I First met my Wife Thcro was always ft mystery hanging about a certain way that Morgan had, nnd in which he was nlwnyu joined heartily by his wife my own cousin May Stevens thnt hnd been n Wny Hint troubled my cu riosity much, until tho one eventful evening that it was satisfied by hearing the rcuson why. It was fimply this : that ever time n word was spoken thnt led to the period when Cluirley Morjron first met my cousin May, they would both lungh very heartily;' but would always refuse to tell nt what they laughed. This wns certainly very pro voking, nnd I had lillle hesitation in tolling them so not once, but many titne6 lit which they laughed more henrtily than ever, mid olwnys emled by kissing each other anil looking very niTcclionate. I determined to hnvo a solution of the mutter, if for no other reason tlinii thai it worried me. I nm but u woman, nnd hav ing pleaded to the possession ol curiosity, I sec no reason why that foible of my sex should ulieit no charity, nnd no meson why sometimes it should not be divulged. With this resolution, I set forth one evening, when we three, Morgan, May, ond myseif, were drawn np before the fire uud fuirly settled for a talk. There was no nse mincing runt ters, was my first idea, with this thought I (lushed boldly in wills : "Mr. Morgan" I nsnnlly call him Char ley, but I was desirous of showing that I was really in earnest "Mr. Morgnn, why do yon alwnys lnngh and look at Mny when the subject of your Crst meeting with her is spoken of?" This, I was sure, wns n simple question; nnd yet, instend of nnswei'ing it in tv sim ple way, they went back, both of them, on the old plan, and laughed as though the words I hnd just spoken were the very best joke in the world. I conld do nothing, of course, but look grave and solemn, which, in a few moments, brought them both to, looking the same way, nnd then Muy spoke to mc seriously, nnd said : "Cousin June, you take our laughing much more earnestly than I thought you would. It is only a little memory between Chnrley nnd I that brings the luugh ; to us it is a droll remembrance, but, perhaps, in telling it, there would be nothing to amuse any one." . This explanation brought hack my good humor in an instant, mid, with a smile, I said : , 'Now, Mny, this is really unkind of you; for so long have you excited my curiosity that, even were the story uot worth telling, you should tell it." "Well, cousin Janet-hall have that story, May, I will tell it myself to her." At this declaration, I was surprised to see Mny flush npto a bright red, and break out rather vehemently with : . "No, Charley that is really too had 1 You shnll not do it, sir. If cousin Jane i to have the story, I will tell her myself." And then, after a pause, she said, "When we nre nlonc." "You shall do no such thing, Madame May," was Chnrley'8 laughing response. "Yon shnll do no such thing. This time I shnlMinve my way, and cousin June shnll not have her curiosity excited any more without being satisfied." I saw there wns to he n discussion on that point, but I knew thnt, in some wny, Charley wns to come off victor; so I, mere ly saying that I would be back in a few minutes, stepped out of the room, and walk ed nbout the garden until I felt sure tho point was settled, when I went back, nnd found Charley nnd Mny looking as happy ns birds, and laughing the old latigh ns us u!fl. As I entered, Charley drew up the rocking chiiir, and, nfter seeing me safely deposited in its depths, said : 'Now, cousin Jane, I shall tell you the story about how I first met my wife : ' It is just five years ogo this mmmer that 1 was granted exemption for a month from my desk, and went down with my chum, Horace Ilyatt, to hh father's in old Monmouth, the gurden of that unjustly abused State, New Jersey. I should never have forgotten that visit, even though I had not there met with an adventure thnt had its influence on tho wholo future of my life. I should remember it for the reul, true hos pitality of the Hyatts ; for the solid, old time comfort of the farm, aud the quiet way in which, within a couple of days ufter my arrival, I was put into possession of it; and made to feel that it all belonged to me, to do just what I pleased , with. There were plenty of horses, nnd we rode: plenty of fish, and we fished ; plenty of wood-coek, ond we shot. All this shall be spoken with a proviso. I say we by which, let it bu understood, I do not mean Horace's two sisters, Carrie and Nettie, as having parti cipated in all these spoi ls. They rode, to be sure and charmingly they did it ; they Cshed. and I am obliged to confess were much luckier than their .guest. Hut tbey did not shoot, though I shall not exult over their lack of this accomplishment they were charming cuough without it. I am sure I shall excite no jcnlousy by de claring that, with one exceptiou, which. I shall not mention here, Carrie and Nettie Hyatt were the most charming girls that I had ever seen, ond I wua just hesitating at to which of them I should fall desperately in love with, when my calculations were all disturbed by an nccidoilt for so I suppose I must call itthough really, seeming like a special provideuce. . What, this was, I shall tell in the best way I know how. ; For some days after my arrival at the farm, my curiosity hnd been much excited by the occasional panegyric lavished by the young ladies upon a once sehool-fellovt of their own, May Stevens by name, who was, according to their highly-colored account, the most perfect thing . in the shape of a woman then living.' I tried to persuade myself that nothing la thnt lino could sur pass Kettle and Carrie ; but still the repeti tion of this May Ssteveiu hauntod mo, and came like ft vhadow across uiy new-born passion. I formed, at last, pn imaginary May Stevens ; and, do what I would, the figuro was with me. At last I was work ed into an agony of curiobity, and trembled with sonio erent purpose, which should bring before me the objecs of my thoughts aud of the two-sisters' continual conversa tion. In what this would have ended It Is Impossible for me all this timo t6 'say.' lad I not beard, one morning as 1 entered tbe break fust room, the startling words from Kettio : ,'Andsoshcfs coming nt last. I'm io glad J." , . ' Whether it wns that tho train of my thoughts wni npon that point at the mo ment, or what, I nnnnot say ; but I knew directly the whole matter. I saw Carrie with an open letter in hrr hand, and coup ling it with Nettie's words, I knew thnt the hitherto only heard of Mny Stephens was about to become a reality. I had no need to nsk questions. All the information was proffered. Mny St evens the incomparable May wns to spend n month at Hyatt's, nnd they were to expect her nt nny moment ; though, as the letter rend, she might not be down for a week to come. A week ! it was on age, a century ; nnd I was in n flut ter of excitement. My long stnnding pas sion, of nearly two weeks duration, for 'ettie nnd Carrie, was forgotten in nn in stant, and my whole mind was absorbed in making the best figure possible before this new queen. With thin idea, I begun to look into my wardrobe. I hnd eoniu down with sufficient clothes to answer all ordinary pur poses, including, of course, Nettie nnd Car rie ; but tho new goddess wns certainly worthy of a new rig on my part, and cer tainly should have it. This resolution was made within fifteen minute after hear ing the anouncement of her intended coming ; nnd before two hours had gone by, 1 was whizzing on my way to town, to carry out thnt resolve. My choicest morsels of ward robe should bo ofj'ered on the shrine of May Stevens. I had absented myself on tho plea of a sudden memory of a business neglected, and and faithfully promised Nettie nnd Carrie that the next day should sen me down at Hyatt's again, to stay out the month thnt May Stevens, the wonderful, was about to pass with them. The racking of brain that day, to crcntc a grand cnscmlh of costume something beyond nil cii ieism, that should at the first glance strike the beholder silent with admi ration was indeed terribly. The labor of writing 'Paradise Lost was nothing to it. It was early in the day when I arrived at my city rooms, nnd, for six hours I dressed nnd re-dressed, compared and rejected and selected ; nnd at tho end of that 'timo I had laid out those portions of my wearable goods in which I had deeided to make my first appearance before Mny Stevens. It wanted still several hours lo sunset. Hav ing got safely through the great object of my visit, I thought it would not be a bad idea for mc to take the last train and return the same night to Hyatt's, instead of wait ing over til! morning. No soencrsaid than done. I packed my habiliments, nnd away 1 went. Whizzing and puffing over nn un interesting road is provocative of sleep.' So I found it when the shudes of evening fell ; for. to Uie best of my recollection, I was in the very midst of a dream, in which May Stevens, attired in book muslin and pule bine satin, sat on n purple cloud and ad miringly inquired who my tnilor was ? Just as I was about to inform her, there came e crash, nnd for a moment I was not entirely certain whether it was the cloud that had exploded, or myself had torn some portion of my apparel that was overstated It required but a moment to awaken me to the fact that both presumptions were wrong. It was our train the C:2G thnt had run off the track smashing things generally, nnd spilling the contentsof several baggage cars along the road, to say nothing of frightening half a hundred passengers into a condition bordering on lunacy. This was a pretty state of things, and to muke it still worse, I was eight miles from my destina tion, though, as it afterwards appeared, not a mile from the next village, where, I heard it canvnsscl, a tavern, supper and beds could be had. I was disposed to make myself agreeable, ond, accordingly, rendered all the assistance in my power to the unprotected females, for which I got my reward on arriving at the haven of refuge the promised tavern by being informed that such a thing as a bed for the night was nn impossible idea, and that with some twenty more of the male gender, must be content with chairs, while ihe beds were appropriated to the gentler sex. Slightly disgusted, I swallowed my snpper, and looked out upon the night. It was a beautiful moonlight, and verging on to ten o'clock. I5y Jove I I would walk nvr to Ilvatt's. No sooner said than dohe. Giving my carpet bng into the hands of the landlord, with the most em phatic charges for its safety nnd punctual delivery nt Hyatt's next morning, at any expense, I set forth. Eight miles is a tri fle; and just ns my watch marked the quar ter after midnight, I went up the lane that led lo the house. They wera early folks at tho farm early to bed and early lip; I walked round the house trying each door and window for on entrance, but each nnd everv one was fastened. It was of no con sequence ; my lied room window looked out hpon the roof of the piuzza ; I would not disturb the house by knocking ; a bit of climbing would do the busiimss, and should the window be fastened, I would tap and awoken Horace, who wug my room-mate and bedfellow. The thiiig was executed as soon as thought of, and my hand on the window, which yielded, and I stood , iu my b.n room. By the moonlight which stream ed in I saw that the bed wiuoucupiud, and by the heavy breathing. J k;aew that Ilor oca was iu a deep sleep. I would not, there; tore, awaken him, but sove the story of my mishap for the following day. With this resolution I slipped quietly into bed, add ia three minutes was oblivious. i . - , i What ought I to havo clreanicu mat night t But I shall not autieipdto. I lay facing tho wiudows as the sun peeped up above the distant hills, and scatterod thu grey mists of the 'rooming. My bed fellow was breathing heavily, but it was brand daylight ond there was. uo more sleep in me, so I determined that Horace should wake up and hear my story of he railroad breuk dowu. ' I turned quickly aud gave the sleeper a sudden shake. ; M rapidly as my own motion my bedfellow who hod laid with his back towards me, Srung into a sitting position, mere bio.bui.-ii tu(iu i wimi out a terror which absoluUly- deprives bs of tho power if speech, unt il the brain has time I? act, and reason, Snub surprisM ido not rrnnr-rate screams Jind faiuts,. j Tbey art I expressed by opca-iuoulhj uud silent wou der. This w4 the case with myself and bed fellow, ns we sot tirriilit nnd stared Right by my side, with her face within two feet of my own, sat a younir woman, not more ihnn seventeen, with great, dark ha zel eyes, a such great masse of brown curls, tucked away under the neatest little night cap (hnt ever wns. She hnd gathered the bed clothes with a rpnsmodic jerk, np about her throat, and with the most rigid, aston ished look, as though doubting whether she wns sleeping or walking, gazed steadily in my eyes. Memory serv.s a mnn but l"ittle in like cases ; but if my memory servea me right, it was I who first spoke. I blurted out with : 'How enmc you here ?' The figure stared still in speechless as tonishment, but in n moment,, ns though n wakened from its stupefaction, spoke : 'Arc you Charles Morgan ?' 'Yes,' was hit rather subdued answer. . 'Well, then, Mr. Morgan,' said the figure, by this time, speaking as culm, nnd with quite ns much dignity ns though in the drawing-room, 'I am May Stevens, nnd I wn put iu this, nfter nn unexpected arrival. Horace hnd gone over to a neighbor', a few miles off, before I got here, nnd wns not to return until to-day. That is how I was nut in tlitc pnnm ' 'So here I won, setting vis a vis to this May Stevens, thnt mythical lady, for the first meeting with whom I had intended to get up such ft superlative toilet. A nice style of introduction nnd a nice style or toilet ! And she she by this time wns ns cool as the 31st of December, nnd sat look ing rne right in tho eye, ns I m tdo some scrambling explanation of my being in that extraordinary position. It wns n lame ex planation wonderfully mixed tip with irrele vant mnttter, nnd shimmered and stuttered through in a way that should have disgust ed nny sensible person. She seemed lo be seriously pondering during the recital, nnd at its end, looking at nic ns though asking the most simple question in the world, said: "What's to be done V 'Let me jump out of the window, as I came in,' suid I in a sickly tone of voice ; for the thought came to me, that to achieve this end, I must muke some desperate dis play of myself in a style of costume which I deprecated. She relieved me instantly with : 'No, that will not d, there nre people moving about, nnd yon will snrely be seen.' It wns my torn now to stammer out : 'What's to be done ?' For I saw that the little hazel-eyed girl was superior to mc in presence of mind and energy of action. She did not wait long to answer my ques tion. 'Yon must lie still here while I get np. When I have left the room, you can rise, dress, nnd go away nt fhe first opportunity,' was her response, delivered in a quiet, business-like manner. ' And so I did. under May Stevens' com mand. I buried my intruding head under the bed clothes, nnd kept it well covered until I heard the retreating footstep on the stairs, which wns but a few minutes, though it seemed on age, nnd then with n desperate bound I sprung from the bed, nnd turned the key on the departed one. It wns the quickest dressinrr I ever mado, and I will venture to say that no man ever sneaked out of bis own opal Uncut more stealthily thnn I did. 'That morning wc met, May Stevens and I, at tho breakfast table I in the charac ter of the newly-arrived that morning and were formally introduced, during the cere mony of which we astonished every one present, nnd planted a thorn of wonder in the sides of Nettie and Carrie, by bursting simultaneously into a henrty langh, which we never fail to repeat whenever the memo ry of our first meeting comes up. 'And now, cousin Jane you have the whole story how I Erst met my wife' Talking and Writing. A man never knows what he has until he has either talked about it or read writ- ten about it. Talking and writing are di gestive processes which are absolutely es sential to the mental constitution of the man who devours many books. But it is not every man who can talk. Talking im plies, first of nil, a readiness on the part of the speaker, nnd next, a sympathetic listen er. It is therefore as a digestive process the most rapid, in its operation. Writing is a different affair ; a man may take his lime to, nnd not require a hearer and can bo his own reader. It is nn easier, although more formal, process of digestion than talk ing. It is in everybody's power ; nnd eve rybody who reads much makes more or less ue of it, because, ns Bacon says, if he docs not write, then he ought to have e.xtrnor dinaiy faculties to ccnipensate for such neglect. It is in this view that we are to understand the complaint of a well-knowil author that be was ignorant of a certain subject, and the means by which he wns td dispel Ids ignorance namely, by writing ou it.

Once in nntnmn, wet ond dreary, sat this writer, weak and weary, pondering over a memorandum book of items used before i (bools of scrawling head notes, rather ; items taking days to gather them in hot sul try weather, using up m:icli timo and leath er,) pondered wo those times o'er, while wc conned ihem, slowly rocking, through our mind queer ideas flocking,) enmo a quick and nervous knocking knocking at the sanctum door.

Ah, well do we remind us, id the walls which then confined us, tho 'exchang es' lay behind us, nnd before us, and around us, nil scattered on the floor. Thought we, 'Jinks wants to borrow, sonic nevVspdpers till to-morrow, nnd 'twill bo relief from sor row to get rid of Jinks, the bore, by open ing wide the door.' Still the Visitor kept knocking knocking loddc'r than before. And the scattered piles of papers cut some rather curious capers, bcins lifted by the breezes coining through another door ; and we wished (the wish was evil, for one deem ed always civil) that Jinks Wai to the d 1, to stay there evermore ; thereto find his, level Jink. tho nerve-unstringing bore I Bracing up our patience firmer, then, with out another murmur, 'Mr. Jinks,' said we, 'your pardon, your forgiveness, we implore. But the fact is, wc were reading of some curious proceeding, nnd thus, it wns, un: heeding your loud knocking there before.' Here we open wide the door. But phancy now our pheelins for it wasnt Jinks ihe bore Jinks, nameless 'evermore. But tho form that stood, before us, caused a trem bling to come o'er us, and memory quickly bore us buck again lo days of yore days when items were plenty, and where'er this writer went, he. picked np interesting items by the score.
