I2hleuburg-A Legend On a high rock, overlooking the Ilhine, tho river of legends, utood tho half castle, half fortress of Ehlenburg, which, with its high and gloomy battle ments, seemed to pierce the very clouds. Its dungeon and keeper were said to be the strongest in Germany, and indeed, it was so, for it could be only accessible from ono point, which was a narrow path, whero but ono man cnuld walk at a time. The owner and Governor of this castilla tcd fortress was Sir John Virrinich, a haughty, overbearing man, subject at times, to fits of tho most violent pastdons. which at one time, led him to commit a crimo of the most horrible nature, which formed Iho legend connected with the old ruins that now staud gazing gloomily, as U were, upon the passing steamboats bearing parties ol tourists up the Hhinc. Sir John was a widower, his wifa hav ing died of a broken heart, after giving birth to adaughter three years after mar riage. This daughter, tho Lady Inadorc, tl.ough treated severely by her father, grew up with all the beauty which en hances the fuir pox within mau's eye. aha had a lover ; what young girl of sev enteen has not 1 He was Captain of the Guards belonging to the Castlo; a young man of low birth, though gifted with a fine education and some personal beauty, which together with his skill and powers in the time of war. had won him the name of The Falchion." He was in deed worthy of the maiden's admiration. Murce. Vu Hchrottcr, forfuch'was his name -with his laurels fresh m his brosr was invited to Court, and while th.re, saw and became enamored of the Lady Iadore. who was then with her father, aiienomg v;oun. lor trie urst time, fttr John pleased with Marcel, offered him t' aft . A . . ft the captaincy in his guards, which was then vacant, and he, to be near the Lady of his heart, accepted the oCBce, and he was soon tustallcd within the castle walls. Tho iady Iadure, after hearing her father spcr.k of his feats of arms, be came interested in him, and having by chauce met him several times while tak ing her morning walks upon the parapet, the interest ripened into love, and thev silently betrothed themselves to each oth er and were happy. So things stood. Iwhcn, one evetimg, Sir John invited .Marcel to take supper with them. The meal was spread within the left wing of the castle, in a lolty hall, the waJU of which were decorated with ancient suits of arms, while the panels between were all hung with the well dressed head and horns of a sturdy deer. At one end of the hall, ct deep within the wall, was a caacious fire-place, well filled with oak en logs, which, as the nights were chilly, Sir John had ordered the l-crvants to light, and it now threw a cheerful light upon tin) table and its surroundings. At a bountifully spread. board were Haled Sir John. Marcel aud the Lady Isadorc ; the uppcr was over and the wine circulated freely around. Ladies were not so chary of its ue in those; days. And the old knight, made mcrryj by tho copiu draughts of Khcnieh he had used to wash dowti his food, cracked his jukes, sang and laughed as only an old man and a soldier can laugh. At last, perceiving that the fire, which ere now was burning cheerfully had nearly disappeared, he asked Marcel to roue it up; he, willing to oblige, aroc, but find ing nothing wherewith to rake tho ashes, drew his sword, and with it coaxed the stubborn fire to blaze. At the moment he heard his name called in tones of thunder by Sir John ; forgetting that ho had been called, leav ing his sword still in the fire, he ad vanced toward Sir John. There he stood, clutching his daughter tightly by the arm. his face all distorted by passion. Sirrati!" he cried as Marcel ap proached, "doft thou love my daughter?" Marcel did not reply, but looked at Lady Isadore. She, alas ! Ioor girl hav ing never teen him in a merry mood be fore while Marcel was engaged . in ar ranging the fire she told her father of his love for her, and asked him to give his consent to their marriage. The re sult was mentioned above. "Sirrah!" shouted the enraged lord, "canst thou not speak? Answer me; dost thou love my daughter?" Tho young man, boldly confronting him replied : " Sir, I love your daughter wo are betrothed." All tho fury that ever entered into the soul of man was combined in Sir John's doul. He felt at his belt for tho dagger ho usually wore, he had laid it aside when about sitting down to supper; lie looked around for some weapon with with which to kill Marcel; his gaze rest ed on Marcel's sword, which rested in tho fire, the btado of which was nearly a red hue; in his blind fury ho thought not of its heat, but Tushing upou Marcel was about to plunge it in his body, when Isadore threw herself before her lover and received tho fiery blade ?n her own pure breast. Sir John gazed but for one moment on tho scene, aud then, with the blood gushing from his mouth and nos trils, fell to the floor. When the retainers entered about an hour atcr,they found father and daughter dead, and Marcel a gibbering maniac. Tho servants removed him to a safe asy lum, where he shortly after died. The bodies of the father and daughter were buried among their ancestors in the chap el, and masses wera said for tho repose of their soul ; but yet they did not rest, for often at night they are seen, tho daughter pursuing the ' father, and making the most hideous lamentations. Such is the legend of Ehlenburgh. If you go there .i. now you wih find remaining of that once lofty pile but pld gray ruins. V Let cynics say what they will, man is not vindictive. Hero for years we have been subjected to the dailv tor ture of wearing the hat, and we havn't even preserved the name of tbe wretch who invented it. . A Floating City, Ono of tho most wonderful cities in tho world is Hankok, the capital of Siatn. Did you ever witness such a sight in your life ? On cither side of the wide, msjeg. tic stream, moored in regular streets and alleys, extending as far as tho, eye can reach, aro upwards of 70,000 neat little houses, each house floating on a compact rait of bamboos, and the whole interme diate srate of the river presents to our astonished gazo one denso mass of ships, junks and boats of every conceivable shape, color and sizo. As wo glide amongst thcue wo occasionally encounter a stray houso broken looso from its moor, ings, and hurrvintr down the stream with the tide, amidst trie uproar and shouts of the inhabitants and all tho spectators. Wo also noticed that all tho front row of houses are noatly painted shops, in which various tempting commodities are exposed for sale t behind these again, at equal distances, rise the lofty, elegant porcelain towers of the various watts, and temples. On our right hand side, as far as tho eye can see, aro three stately pil lars, erected to tho memory of three defunct kings, celebrated for some acts of valor and justice; and a little beyond this, looming like a line of battle shins amongst a lot of cockleshells, rises the straggling and not very elegant palace of the King, where hi Siamese Majesty, with ever so many wives and children, resides. Kight ahead, where the city ter minates, and the river, making a curve, flows behind the palace, is a neat looking fort, surmounted with a top of mango trees, over which peep the roofs of two houses and a flagstaff, from which floats the royal penant an the jack of Siatn a flag of red uroundwork, with a white elephant worked in the centre. This is the fort and palace of the Prince Chou Kuu King Siam, and one of the most ex traordinary and intellectual men in the Kast. Of him, however, wft shall c aud hear more, after we have bundled our traps on shore and taken a little rest. Xow, bo careful how you step out of the boat info the balcouy of tho floating home, for it will recede to the force of y.iur effort to mount, and if not aware of this, you lose your balance and fall into the river. ow we are safely tranship ped, for wc cannot as yet say landed ; but wo now form an item, though a very small one, of the vast population of the city of liankok. We take a brief aorveyj of our present apartments, and fiad ev erything though inconveniently email, clean, and in other respects comfortable. Fird we have a little hilcony that over hangs the river, and isabout twenty yards Ion;;, by one and a half broad. Then wo have an excellent sitting room, which serve us for a parlor, dining room and all ; thiti we have a little idc room for books and writing, and behind these, ex tending the length of tbe other two, a bed. room. Of course we must bring or make our own furniture; for though those houses are pretty well oil, on this score the Siamese have seldom anything besides their bedding materials, a few pots and pans to cook with, a few jars of stores, and a few fishing nets. Every houe has a canoe attached to it, and no nation detests walking so much as the Siamese ; at the same time they are all expert s-vimmers, and both men aud women begin to abquire this most ncees sary accomplishment at an early age. Without it a man runs a momentary risk of being drowned, as, when a canoe up sets, none of tho passers by ever think it necewary to lend any aid, supposing them fully adequate to the task of saving their owo lives. Canoes are being hourly up set, owing to the vast concourse of vessels and boot plying to and fro; and owing to this negligence or carelessness in render ing assistance, a Mr. JJcnham, an Ameri can missionary, lost his life, tome twelve years ago, having upset his canoe when it was just getting dark, and though sur rounded by boats, no ono deemed it ne cessary to stop and pick the poor man up. fST The "sacredoess" of the ballot box in the South under the political con trol of the carpet-baggers, is illustrated by tho following which we take from the col umns of the Atlanta (Ga.) Intelligencer : "Another poll for tho city was opened in tho uioroig, and Col. A. W. Stone took charge of it. Boxes being scarce in this city, the gallant Colonel kindly permitted his pockets to bo used as a receptacle for qualified ballots. Rather than permit such an outrageous procedure, Colonel II. S. Fitch procured a cigar box, had it scaled up, and a hole cut in the top in which to insert tickets. Such a thing was never before heard of a judge of election putting tho tickets in his pocket I" The plan of concerting thepoe&efs of a judge of election into a ballot box would not have been considered exactly orthodox before tho days of Badic&lism ; but under the dispensation .we suppose it is comme ilfaut. '"" Socrates lived beforo his time and perished in conflict and error. Ono of his prayers, which is left us, beautifully illustrates tho character of tho man: " Father Jupiter, give as all good, wheth er we ask it or not; and keep us from all evil, though wo may not pray thee so to do. Bless all our good actions, and roward them with happiness and success." A descetidaut of Natal having put a crown-piece into tho plate" in an Ed inburgh church, one Sunday morning, by mistake, instead o a penny, asked to have it back, but was refused. In once, in forever. ..." Well, well,", said .he, " I'll get Credit for it in heaven." " N 00 " said Jeems, tho door keeper, M you'll get credit only for the penny you meant to give" " . :.-.- :.

' " A ton of collar paper, it is stated, is made daily at one mill in Pitsfield, Mass, v NO. 46 Was) It not Providence 7 About forty years ago, in the Western part of New York, lived a lonely widow ed mother. Her husband had been dead many years, aud her only daughter was grown up and married, lmng at the dis tance of a milo or so from the family mansion. . ; And thus tho old lady lived alone day and night. Yet in her, conscious inno cence and trust in Providence, she felt safa and cheerful, did her work quietly during the daylight, and at night slept sweetly. One morning, however, she awoko with an extraordinary and unwonted gloom npon her mind, which was impressed with the apprehension that something was about to happen to ber or hers. So full was ho of this thought that she could not ptny nt home that day, but must go aorq to it. unbosoming her. in -7 8 1 14 sHnt, however, that she was not aware of being startled at all, but heard, as soon as she awoke, a sound like the rising of a window near her bed, which was io a room on the ground floor. - The dog neither barked nor moved. Next there was another sound as if some one was in the room and stepping cau tiously on the floor. The woman saw nothing, but now for the first time, felt the dog move, as he made a violent spring from the bed, and at the fame moment something fell on the floor, sounding like a heavy log. Then followed other noises. iikc me pawing 01 a dog a leet ; but soon all was still again, and the doz re sumed his place on the bed, without hav ing barked or growled at alL This time the widow did not go to sleep immediately, but lay awake, sufferiag, yet not deeming it best to get up. But at last she dropped asleep, and when she awoke the sun was shining. She hastily stepped out of bed, and there lay the body of a man, extended on 'the floor dead, with a large knife in his hand, which was even now extended. The dog had seized him by the throat with a grasp of death, and neither man nor dog could utter a sound till all was over. The man was the widow's son-in-law, the husband of her only daughter. He coveted her little store of wealth, her house, her cattle, and her land ; and, in stigated by his sordid impatience, he could not wait for the decay of nature to give her property up to him and his, as the only heirs apparent, but made this stealthy visit to do a deed of darknesn in the gloom of the night. A fearful retri bution awaited him. The widow's ap prehensions, communicated to her mind and impressed upon her nerves, by what unseen cower we know not, the sympa thy of the womam who loaned the dog, and tho silent but certain watch of the dog himself, formed a chain of events which brought the murderer's blood upon his own head, and which are difficult to be exclaimed without reference to that Providence which number the hairs of our heads, watches the sparrow's fall, and "shapes our ends, rough-hew them as we will." Harper's Weekly Get Into Your Hole. During the "late unpleasantness" there was a cool, unquenchable sort of a Yankee, named Gunn, who ran a stage in Western Vir gina over a rout much infested by bush whackers. We frequently told Gunn that ho would someday get smashed up and gobbled, and he had better give up his job; but all to no purpose, for he kept on driving stage and pocketing green backs. So three of us concluded we would give him a good scare that he would accept as a warning. In coming from his . stables late at night, -he always took a short cut across .an old buryiug ground. To this point we repair ed. One of our number, wrapped in a sheet, lay down, stark and stiff on the newly made graves, while the others dodged behind tombstones, and impatient ly, awaited Gunn's arrival. Soon he came along, whistling aid swinging a pair of heavy bridles, when all at once ho was confronted by the ; spectre. There he stood for a few moments with his arms akimbo, and cooly eyed the object from head to foot,1 then raising his bridles be gan to ! give it a tremendous thrashing, bawling put at the same time : - "Consarn your old picter, what are you doin' out here this time 0' night ?

G. Washington Brick, of the Louisville Journal, gets off the following : If there is anything cn earth, in the way of staple or fancy goods, that I abso-' lutely adore, it is a white petticoat a very white one of course; and if there is any thing in the same line that I absolutely do not adore but "so far from it on the con trary, quite the reverse," it is a colored one. I have always thought that a snowy petticoat and a pair of snowy stocking?, with a pretty girl concealed in them, pos sesses more gilded and sugar-coated en chantment for the refined and poetic soul than any other object upon which the sun shines, or has ever shone. Of course this presupposes a pretty foot and ankle with gaiter boots not slippers to match. Not one in a thousand of heaven's last gifts can, in the presen.ee of an artistic or critical taste, wear slippers with any de gree of safety. The foot and ankle must be the perfection of symmetrical beauty or the slipper is a nuisance, which should be abated, if it connot be done otherwise, by legislative enactment. When my ap- petite is unimpaired, I can take a drink of well advertised bitters not such as every vagrant plank fence and vagabond wall constantly call upon me "try" and enjoy a good dinner very comfortably upon a colored table cloth ; but if I were to marry the lovliest of girls and should detect her in the act of wearing a colored petticoat, there is not the slightest doubt, especially if we happened to be living in Chicago that we would find ourselves involved in a divorce suit before we were ten years older. A girl who is habitually addicted 1- it. t ? 1 P it! it . 10 me naoib 01 weanux a imo" 01 mat sort, would, on going to housekeeping, have all her plates and cups and saucers of a coperas color to hide dirt. No j as I have already intimated, I wouldn't give a canceled two cent postage stamp for ' better grounds for a divorce, if I were in want of such grounds than the introduc tion info my family of a colored petticoat 1 and a pair of blue, gray, or lead-colored stockings. They are a part of a young lady's wearing apparel which neither gods nor men are said to permit, and girls should be educated to know it. There is not a more beautiful accomplishment, when it is known. Who Pays the Taxes? The radi cal papers argue that the laboring men are no worse off on account of the greatly increased cost of living occasioned by taxes. If the cost of living is doubled, so is the prica of labor, they say. Will some of these astute financiers be kind enough to inform the people how it is that the' government contrives to collect five hun dred millions of taxes in a year without making somebody that much poorer 2 The consumers pay nearly all of it, andV the laboring classes constitute the great-; body of consumers in the country, and if' what they pay in taxes is refunded to them in the way of increased wages for labor what class is it that really pays the taxes ? Does it all come out of the man ufactures aad producers f ... If so, why not levy the tax directly upon them and save the trouble and great expense of sifting them through the consumers ? The truth, is, the laboring men of the country are- aying nearly all the taxes, and. accumu ated property is exempt, and it is only for the, purpose of deceiving that the . 1 1 1 it 1 .. rauicai aemogOgues assert uio euuwrary. And the. worst of it is, that the poor, white, workingmen of the country are bound to pay onerous and oppressive tax es for the f outh in idleness and crime.- Atchison Fatriot.
