BRADFORD, VERMONT, FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 30, 1836. whit tiif. i:ui-i:i:k 1 oi.. I am 1111 engineer. Ever since the :iu! wiisl.iiil, I've tniveled ve r it ecry day, or neurly every (lay of my lite. For si j,'ooil while I've had the Siiine (iiifine in charji'e the Sati Francisco (he prettiest engine on the roiiil, ami :is well niiitiareil, if I do nay it, as the hest. It was a .southwestern road, run ning, we'll say, from A. to Z. At A. my e,ood old mother lived ; nt Z. I hail the sweetest littir wife under the sun, and a liahy or two; and I had also a dollar or so ut liy for a rainy day. I was ait odd kind of a man. licinjr slna up with an engine, watching widi all your eyes and heart ami soul, inside and our. don't tend to make a man talkative. My wile's name was Josephine and I called her Jo. Some ieole thought me unsociuhlc ami eould'f understand how a man could feel liiei'dly without sayinjt ten words an hour. So, tliouli I liad a few old friends ood ones, too I Inid not iis ninny aciiaiutances as most people, and did not edre to ha ve. The house that, held iijv wifeand I ta llies was the dearest place oi-i"Hi'tii to me, except the other liotie that held my old mother, up to A. v- I'd never lieen to a clllh. or miJtPd myself up with stratijjrerx in anvsnc'i w:iy, and never oliould if it hadn't been for Craniiv. You see (Jrnnbv wasoiieurthf share holdeis. a hand soaie, showy fellow. I liked to Jtifril. witJi him and we were friends. Tie fn rode from Z. to A. and hack aiiin, iiud onee he said : " Von oiijiht to l.eliiitjr l0 tlto Sci eiitilic C'lul), (ueldon.'1 " Never heard of it," said I. I a;n a metiilier," said ho. " We meet once a fniini jlit and have a jolly oo,i time. We have srnu aino'i-st us now. I'll propose you if yon li ;e." T was fond of such thinjra nnd I ha:l ideas thwt I fancied I'liuht le w.rtli sometltiny. r.Mt (hen sin en X;7icer don't hiive nights or days to himself, and the club would take one evrnin a toitiiiiiht from Jo. 1 said I'll ask l.er. If whe likes it. vcs."'f " Ask whom !"' said lie. "Jo." said I. 1 " If every man had asked his wife, i every man's wife would have sjiid, can t spare you, my dear," and we i slu u'd have had no club at all," said lininbv. I r.nt I made no answer. At home i ; I told Jo. She said : I " I shall miss .yon. Ned: huNyou i j 'lo hive such tl.iugs. iin.l tiietl if Mr. jtiranby belongs, they must be supe- ! ' l ior men." I ! No doubt," said I. j i It isn't every Imdy that could b j I made n member." said Jo. "Why,: i of course, you must say yes." ' j j So I said "yes." nnd (irnnhy pro- ! 'posed me. Thursday fortnight It : went with him to the rooms. 'There j neie some men with brains there, some withi'iit. The teal business of the evening was the supper, and so it Wiis every meeting. i I'd always been a temperate num. i I actually did not know what cll'ecr ! w ine would hiic upon ine ; eoiuii.g ! to drink more of it than I -ver had ; ,. ,1 1.. I. .11. r . . i glasses I wanted to talk, after so many more 1 did. I seemed like soniebodv else, the words were so ready. My little ideas came out and were listened to. I made sharp hits; I indulged in re partee; I told stories; I even cane' to puns. I heard somebody say to (iiiinby; " liy George, that's a man worth knowing ! I thought him dull at first." Yet I knew that it was better to be cjtiiet Ned (rHehloti,with his ten words an hour, than the wine-niiide wit I was. I was sure of it w hen, three hours after I stiiiub cd up stairs at 1 ome to find Jo waiting for me, w ith her baby on her breast. " You've been deceiving me," said she, I've suspected it, but I was not sure. A scientific club couldn't smell like a bar-rooui." " Which means I do," said I, wav ing in the middle of the room like a signal Hag at a station and seeing two Jos. " And look like one," said Jo; and she went and locked herself and the biiby in the f.pare bed room. One club night as I was dressed to go, Jo stood hctore inc. " Ned," said she, " I never had h fault to find w ith ymi before. I'll say that. You've been kind and good and loving always ; but I should be sorry we ever met if ymi v." ere to go on in this way. Don't ask me what I mean. You know."' ".lo," said I; it's only on club nights." " It will grow," said she. Then she put her anus about in, neck. I' Ned," saitt she, "do yon think a thing ho much like a bo; tied up and st i appeil down demon us sttuni is.is lit to be put into the hands of a drunken umn f And some day, mark my word, the time will runic when not only Thursday night, bill an ine nays oi ine vvecli will lie the same.

I sai 1 I'll-iievev pain you a, 'a n." And I meant it; hut at tw-flve that ni'ht I felt that I had forgotten the promise and my resolution. I couldn't fo hoin: to Jo. I made up my mind to Aleep on the c'iU so fa iiml leave the place for good the next (lav. Already I felt my brain reel as it never had before. In in i hour I was 'in a kind f Hinxr. !

As it was, I only caught k J hat and rushed away. I was jrwt in time. "'-The tian Francisco glittered in i the morning sun. The ears were II I - j ling rapidly. From my ist I could hear the peojile talking 'milling each other good lnc, promising to writ, ami come 'again. Amongst their ''as a old gentleman I knew by slMnt one of tlie s'larelioidmrs : liewas bidding two timid girls adieu. "(iood-bye, Lon I heard him say; " don't 1m nervous. The' San Francisco is the safest engine on the line, and Ci ueldon the most care ful engineer. I would not be atraid to trust every mortal I love in a batch to their keeping. Nothing could lumpen wrong with" the two together." I said. " I'll get tlrongh it some how; and -lo shall never h ive to talk to ' me again." After all, it was efisv enough. I reeled us I spoke, ! hoard the signal." We were off. Five hours from L. to 1)., live hours back. , On th last I should jbe myself ag'iin 1 know now.

If yon see a tall one, with a fresh, ruddy edni plexion, solid, square built form, nhrt one or two Chris hangingdown from her light brown hair, withn inoiler-ate-sized waterfall, you may bet your existence she is from the State of Maine. Little, natty girls, with loop ed up skirts and iasliioiiable outfit generally, are from Massachusetts. With rare exceptions they are all from New England, and they are the, bitterest, most uncompromising Uadieals imaginable. The most of the South cannot appreciate the fact that really rellued and intelligent young ladies can be educated to abe lief that in leaving couifortaole homes, dear friends and pleasant snrrouudings to teach the young African idea how-to shoot, they are doing a Christian duty, and are prompted by Mie same spirit which sends hundreds of Christians abroad as missionaries to heathens. The white natives, too, have an idea that these teachers are really in structing their scholars how to shoot iu earnest, or in plainer words, that they are abolition emissaries. sent here to incite insurrection and House the freednMhi to deeds of bloodshed and wholesale ma-ssacre. For these, and other obvious rea sons, the " Yankee school inarms"' are shutout from society of any des cription except that which they fur nish for themselves. They gay that they take pleasure in the perform ance of their duties, and lind1 conso lation for the lack of other pleasures in observing the progress of their s holars ; but the way their eyea gleam, and the cordial reception with which they greet a Yankee sympathizer, proves conclusively that they are still ameauableto the natural desire of their sex for social intercourse.

S'tV; The Fenians', Irish-like, I am almost ashamed as aii Irishman ,o say, nave auuereti to tueir ene mies. Now, I wish to propose a ohm to end ail this trouble for vou in Camilla. Get torether all your Fen a i prisoners and take them to the American lines and set them tver, with a warning not to be aught again. That will end tho matter at once. Tlrese fieople might have made vou trouble if thev had g ne with the Union party. They have gone, as they always have, with their-enemies, and now will have to get their help trom them, and little can they get from them. All they wantof them is their votes, ami now they know they can have them in any event, so they will give them Yio aid to invade your ccoutry, for they see they can only go tiiere against the lie publicans, as they always have been. Countrymen, I am very sorry to say, protest to love liberty, but still go with the xirty that (hies not love it. They do not understand the mean ing of the word ; in fact they know not how to realise it. There will le an - end "to Fenian troubles here an I elsewhere. You will s"e so. Let fco your prisoners, and the only thing whioh will give the agitators n;:,y. !i;ng to agitate will be gone.
