WITH Xew Orleans is not behind Xew a . t ' . a oric or any oiuer city m social ro- lances. iJne ol soinewitat singular haracter, which might be extended into many entertaining chapters, is now the table-talk in !irt-faiiuly or ks. It is not entirely novel, vet there is sufiicient spice of l i'iuaiicv liout it to give it au agreeable llavor agreeable, ut least to the reader. The l aiticulars nre brieilv thcae : A fair maidett und gallant swain, a pastoral iiograpticri would de scribe them, wtioe respective families ave long been fuvoraplv knowu in the Southern metropolis, were aCi- aiicid. i'roui the hwur of their eu gagcuit nt the devotion of the young man to his inamorata was all that the most fastidious and exacting damsel ould deaire. He was a coiistaut vis itor at her residence and lavished up ou her all the atteutions iu such fu ses usual and expected. Presently, however, another male candidate for maU'imouial distinction came upon the scene, aud as bis peculiar merits shone somewhat more brilliantly than those of the voutu already en gaged, he was received with consid erable warmth, aud it soon became cry evident to the acquaintances of the young lady that candidate number one was not quite sure of her tand. Still," as she hud promised to bo his, he had no suspicion thut she would ufciy him false, nor did she give any plain sign of any iutcutiou so to do. With the exception of the occasional "miffs" peculiar to pre- matrimonial relations, matters went on smoothly efrbugh, and at length a day was appointed for the all-import ant ceremony. Jxtensivo arrange ments for a splendid marriage feast were made by the bridegroom-ex ec la nt, und numerous invitations were issued to the friends whom he desired to share with him the festive pleasures of tho happy day. The cagbrly-looked-for morning arrived at length, beamiug as brigutiy as a rosy bride arrayed in glory for the altar, aud every moment seemed a day until the hour came at which the process of figuratively converting two persons into one was to be per formed for the couple. u hen the hour did come the eager youth took proper measures to ascertain wheth er the bride to be was ready for the ordeal of the altar, and learned to his amazement that she was a wife already. Hardly an hour before she had given her hand to candidate number two, and bound herself . to him a3 firmly as the ritual which all young ladies make it a point to mas ter ere they leave their teens could make her. The nlted youtn, instead of tearing all the curls out of his hair and making a hurried repast on strychnine or laudanum, bore his chagrin like a true philosopher. Giving directions to have the mar riage-feast spread, he immediately mvited the friends who had assem bled to accompany him to the table and there, with his guests, he passed the evening as merrily as though a bride was at his right hand. To tbe most intimate of his friends he mado no secret of his satisfaction at escap ing a contract that, had it been con summated, might have made him miserable for life. It is doubtful indeed, if the nuptial supper of the fair and false one was as happy as that of the man she had promised to wed, but who, at the last moment learned that she was not all his fancy painted her. James Wilson, of ; Carthage, was treated to au - unexpected gin-sling the other day. He was riding with Mrs. Ginn, when Mr. G. met ' the pair, when he' slung a Btoue which made a bad cut in Wilson's head. THE I'KDilllKXTI tLlOiVTKNT! The result of the elections, this: fall, will have an important bearing on the national contest of 1872. The lartics, taking their cue from the pop ular expression this year, will name their candidates and shape their poli tics in accordance therewith. Grant will undoubtedly bo tho Republican nominee for tho Presidency, because tho elections having resulted generally iu Jlej ublican mjcccssos; they will bo taken as au indorsement ol his Admin istration, and considered as a juasi renominatiou by the people. It is quite true that national politics have entered Lut little into the looal slee- tious, State policy being the tnatter now particularly at issue, but Grant's friends will so construe tho popular expression as to make it a Grant en dorsement, and will thus'Wenabled to earrv him through. It would be dillicult under almost any circumstan ces to have defeated Ins re uomiua tion. He has in every State an army of Federal ollice-holdcrs with plenty of money at their command, and without auy conscientious scruples as to the manner in which it should be used. They are active, skilled iu pol itical trickery, and, in every respect formidable in the manipulation of the machinery ol partv and the manage ment of conventions. Keinforced as they now are, with the prestage of success for d rants Administration, they will be irresistible. We con- lU'.e, mereiore, tnat ins re iiomina- tiou is assured, and we are heartily glad of it. Had we the power to nominate any of tho persons promi nently spoken of for the position among the Republicans, Grant would be our choice. He is the weakest of all, and can be beaten more easily. He has scandalized ihe country by his nepotism, startled its fears by usurpation, and disgraced it by the corruption that everywhere prevades ihejpublic service. The most respect able element of his party is at open war with him. Such men as Greeley, Sumner, Govemer Geary, Ex-Secretary Cox, Carl Schurz and Gralz Brown, do not attempt to couceal their hostility. The Hostou Tracder says that Sumner has, on more than one occasion, said, "General Grant is the lowest man that ever sat in the Presidential Chair; lower, intellectu ally, tltau Andrew Johnson; lower, morally, than Franklin Pierce and lower, socially, because, in private life, Mr. Pierce was a gentleman.' '"This," aays tho Tracckr, "ia the ex act language used by Mr. Sumner, wno uocs not iiesitate lrauklv to say that General Grant should be im- icaehcd for his coduct toward San Domingo." We . do - not ace how Sumner can vote for Grant, or use Lis tiilnci'.fc for h.m in case of his re- nomination. Schurz has not, so far a we have seen, used any personal abuse toward Graut, but he has flatly declared, i:i a public speech that he would not supMrt bun lor re-election. Iu his Xashville speech he made use of the following language, "When I, tho other day, in a public peeeh in Chicago, declared that I would not bupjiort President Grant for re-election on account of the mi grant violation of the Costitution he iu hits committed in the San Domin go case, a great many of my republi cau brethren were shocked bevoud measure, and raised a ery of "high treason against the party, while some of the feeble in mind exclaimed that my making such a declaration was a sure sign that I must have been dis appointed in the matter of patronage. 1 may assure them that 1 spoke with cool and mature deliberation, for it will not do to tritle with such cases." We have here the repeated declara tions of two of tho most influential men of the party, representing too, the liadicaf and Conservative ele ments, and also the East and West. Should the Democrrcy.act discreetly by making good nominations, aud dopting a sound platform, wo do not believe trant can possibly bo re elected. What the Democracy will lo, cannot ha conjectured at this time Whether the nominee will bo Chase, Groesbeck, or some one not now spoken of, the future can only deter mine. The reverses sustained this fall will demonstrate the necessity of nomiuaung tho very strongert and most avilable man. Our choice is for an old liner who has stood by the party through all its trials, but we have faith to believe that whatever is best will be done. There appears to be a disposition upon the part of Southern Democracy to leave the nominations and the shaping of the policv of the party entirely to their brethren of the North, and they aro engaged at discussing the propriety ol sending no delegates to the .N la tional Convention, lhis appears to be the policy recommended by Gen Wade Hampton, and he is sustained by a portion ol tho press. Iho rea son giveu is that they do not wish to have tho party embarrassed on their account, and think, therefore, that by entrusting the entire management to the Northern Democracy, this danger will be avoided. Whilst we doubt the policy of absenting themselves from the Convention, their motives are certainly most praisworthyV SonorAa Democrat.

From the Cii.Mi.Diti Times and Chronicle A TRUE LOVE TALE. How a Iteautiful M;ivc ( optured u our;ly I're:ieliuiiau. , We are iu receipt, through Paris letters, of a very, romantic and o'er true tale concerning 51. Bendetii, the French diplomat, Vho has al ready made so much talk in the world, and upon whose Hhoulders tho immediate responsibility of . the lute war was thought to lie. The in cident have not, as yet, leaked out in America, and will prove of interest to those who delight in roaSned pie ces of . gossip and romantic narra tives of love. Very early in the diplomatic career of the French Embassador bodily fa tigue led him to take a pleasure trip throagktlbut uumt delightful portion of the globe included in Greece and the Ionian Isles, and the countries that lie about the Sea of Marmora and the Uosphorus. At Athens he fell iu with a Greek merchant, of el egant manners and attainments, to wiiose own personal attractions was added that of a daugbtcr, the most beautiful iu form and feature that the eyes of the statesman had ever lit upon. A Frenchman hi not slow to TELL HIS LOVE, Especially when joined to that insou stance and social daring that comes of long life in the most polished of European Courts, and the weeks that they passed under tho golden fckies of the Levant among the peerless Islands of the Archipelago and in the orange and spice groves of Mar mora were glowing with the warm light of a true love that ran smooth a liquid velvet. Then came the dis agreeable task of asking papa, and the dramatic crisis of ur lalo. The ! courtly merchant heard the French man's patriotic declaration in a style considerably different from that of the three-act drama which Jod-bles-cs-you-my-ebiidreu, and adds several pillow-cases full of gold and jewels. The eyes of the old man acre filled with tears, and the disclosure which lie insisted upon making ran as fol lows: Some two years previous he, too, WEARIED IS 1IISD ASl liODT, lad started out for a pleasure jaunt that led bim through the Golden lorn into the city of Constantino ple. Strolling through the slave marts one day, his eyes Lad fallen upon a young girl of more matchless beauty than it had entered into his heart to conceive of. The disorder ed state of her garments drooping ing from her full white neck and shoulders, the disheveled hair pour ing its glossy black over cheek and bust, and the mingled look of terror and anguish in her great black eyes, waked iiU the pitv and love that had lain dormant in his heart for rears, and that night the apartments of the j wealthy Greek were lit by the glad smile of the lovely and grateful slave. A year passed, and as coming age drove passion from the merchant's blood there came into it A GUEAT LOVE ASD EEGABD For the young woman he had taken iuto his household, and after no lit tle hesitation and mental struggle he not only released her from slavery, but adopted her as his own child and spared no effort to fit her for the po sition that the wealth and standing of her accepted father entitled her to. it was at this juncture that she met 51. Eeudetli, and it is a bright spot in thut chivalry for which France was once so famous, that these pain ful disclosures added to rather than lessened his love. They were mar ried, aud upon the death of the mer chant, who did not long survive the oss of the slave and daughter, THE WHOLE OF HIS VAST FOBTCXE Wa3 found to be willed to Mme. Benedetti, utterly ignoring several heirs-at-law. It is this fact which has led to the exposure of the tale, and may yet causa the French states- ni na much trouble. Suit was imme diately brought by the incensed rela tives to contest the will, but the great influence of M. Benedetti kept it out of the Courts. The overthrow of the Empire, however, now allows the law to take its own course, and it is to be feared that the fair slave will be shorn of most of her fortune. There is enough left, however, in face and form, if all tales be true, to make the Frenchman bless to his dy ing day his pleasure jaunt through ) golaen sunslane of the Grecian Isles. OrR Teeth.

Old Squire II. was a very successful and substantial fanner, in an interior town of Massachusetts, and a more amazing cater never lived in any town anywhere. And especially much did he eat when fresh pork was to be the nourishment. Well, at a certain time one ot his hogs had been killed. The next morning there w as to be fresh pork for breakfast, and the old man eat most wondrously. In the course of the forenoon he ate his luncheon, consisting of bread and butter and mince pie and cheese. At noon his dinner consisted of fresh pork, pickles, mince pie, and the usual accompani ments. His afternoon lunch was like that of the forenoon. When he came home to his supper, Ids favorite dish had been prepared as a part of that meal. ,The old man fretted and scolded till fresh pork Was added to the substantials. He ate voraciously, as usual. In the evening he toasted some cheese, buttered and ate it Just before going to bed he roasted a couple of apples and ate them. In : the night he was taken with a se vere colic ; the doctor was with him till morning, and wrought. a miracle iu saving the old man's Ufe. The next day Bolles W., one of his neighbors, went in to condole with the old Squire. "Faithful Bolles," said the. old worthy, " I liked to have died last night, I'll never eat another roast apple as long as I live. I never did love them very well ; and last night I ate only two, and they nearly killed me." ; ANrtshmair one morning went out very early in search of some game on an estate where the game laws were strictly enforced.
