A lady, youthful, lovely, nccotnplislicd.and
tho daughter of a distinguished Kentuckian,
unloving independent competence, impi rious-
ly'comanded tbo admiration of tbo gallants
of tho vicinage, nnd attracted zealous suitors
from abroad. She was a belle of almost un

world, sbo was an npt mistress of coquetry,
nnd wielded her resistless sceptro unmerciful
ly upon all who ventured within tbo cbaim
cd radii of her matchless f.icinations.
She reigned ruthlessly during a long and
brilliant career, and her reputation for come
liness and social skill neither waned with the
Jarse of timo or her cruel c.creito of power,
but seemed to bo promoted without appa
rently approaching culmination, and splen
didly" illustrated tho remorseless tjr.inny of
capricious nnd passionless beauty. I'.itiguod

triumphs of ordinary coquetry, sbo intro
duced, by way of epiocde. tlio expedient of
an engagement to nurrv. jot satisfied, liuw
ever, with tho usual termination of l.appy
courtship, sho improved upon the obtaining
customs, by betrothing ber-elf to two loers
whom sho adroitly managed to keep pro.
foundly ignorant of their mutual preten
sions and expectations.
One suitor was a talented young minister
of fair possessions. Tho other u gentleman
of" elegant leisure," and lord of many broad
acres, Both wero tilting for tbo whimsical
heautv. each conscious of tbo other's devo
tion, but, as wo havo said, mutually unawaro
of their mutunl success. '1 ho )oung minister
was favored by tho damsel's father, and was
accepted by him for the future son-in-law.
Acquainted witli tbo mother's hostility to
himself, and consciuus of her preference for
his rival, as well as conceiving tlio latncr
consent adequate for tho accomplishment o
his purpose, and trusting to timo und eir
cumstanco to mitiguto her prejudices, tbo
young iiiiuisii-i jurijuru uiqiiituuuii ivm-i.
His rival, meantime, had been accepted by
the mother who, like himself, was ignorant
ol tho young minister s successful ncgotia
tions andducming himself sufficiently justi
bed to proceed, and appreciating tho lather 1
objections to himsclt, he, on tho other hand
us 111s rival una rciruincd irom Minimum;
his petition to tho mother, neglected hisubl
gations to tho father. Tho urtful complica
tions of tho daughter wcro thus far attended
with happiest success, and it is lircsmnibl
sho hugely enjoyed tho cxtiaordinary and
perplexing evrure lewjis.
Tho rivals now becamo importunate an
solicited tho speedy consummation of tho con
teraplatcd alliance, Their betrothed, how
ever, capriciously vexed and tautalirud the
to her heart's content, deluding them with
alternate hopes und promises, liko Macboatb's
'asides to lua two sweethearts," hut finally
concurred with their ardent petitions, and
uppointed tho nic day. horn anil ylace, for
the solemnization nf the triangular bridal.
Arrangements wero subsequently made which
added richer spico to tho culminating drama.
Tho minister und his betrothed ugrced to
cclebrato their nuptials quietly, a few df
their mutual friends only, being advised.
On the other hand, ostentatious preparations
wero inado for a magnificent display. Cards
wero dispatched far und noar by our heroine,
and tbo mother's choice, and all tho gallan
try and beauty of tho countiy wero inloruicd
of the approach ol tbo budal period. Tho
absenco of tho minister, meantime, facilitated
operations, ami gossipping rumor, slrango to
say, failed lor once to mar tho execution ed it
brilliant design. How tbo parents remained
in ignoranco in tl.o midst of uetivo prepara
tion has not been developed, hut tliuse fami

tilul w-omsn vivaciously responded to happy
form at her feet. Outsido tho circloand half
hidden from view, sunken into tho deep em-,
brace- of on arm-chair, with her face buried in
the folds of her garment, reclined tho half
j.av .l vzeil mother of the hrido, speechless and
iiiimov.iblo as a statue. Near and trjing to
sootbo her, stood tho dismayed father, as
tounded nnd overcome by the apparent calam
ity that had befallen bis house. At the mo
ment appointed for the nuptials, two bride
grooms claimed the hand of the bride ' Each
had come with glowing anticipations of Hap
piness, mutinlly congratulating themselves
upon tho moment that would find them united
to tho object of their adoration. Uach was
unconscious of tho other's claims, and the
fleet when the dread fact burst upon them,
was tremendous. It was too overwhelming
for tho young minister. With a heart-rend-
ng gasp ho struggled lor a moment unu 1011
headlong and bcart-strickcn to the floor. It
as that appalling sound, mingica wuu 1110
iirieks of tho bridesmaids, which so startled
tho guests in tho midst of their joyouB antici
pations nnd hilarity.
Tho spectacle presented to tho rushing and
terrified throng of beautiful women and gay
gentlemen, was terrifying. Tho tableaux of
the fallen groom; tho calm and unmoved
brido; tbo agitated groom searching her with
glaring eyes and livid features ; the paralyz

Mb. L. Merriam or Hrooklvn, the man
who gets up " heated terms" for the public,
has written a letter from tho Hanks of tbo
Ausable to tbo N. Y. Courier and Enquirer
giving an account of his travels and dis
coveries in this region. Ho got specimens
of tho Colchester variegated marblo which
justly considered very beautiful. Ho says :
"A quarry of beautiful IVr.I Antiqur has been
opened sixty miles further east, at the nptr of the
water shod of tho Green Mountains a wonderful
locality for such a deposit. It is noar tho Peak of
Klllington, on tho summit of which I erected my
spruce-bough Observatory in 1810, where, at tho
still and solemn hour of midnight, I attempted to
measuro the intensity of profound sitnrr. I was
overwhelmed with the undertaking, and for tho mo
ment became lost to myself. Such is the feebleness
of tho humvn mind."
After this recurrence to bis failuro to
meusuro a silence term, ho speaks of the
Ausablo as follows.
This is a wonderful river a sweet water, that was
born of the lofty pfaks of the Adirondack Moun
tains, and is the offspring of the union of an elec
tric current passiug from the Northern seas, through
the Gulf of the St. I.awrcnco on the one side, and
from tho Southern Atlantic, through the Gulf of
Mexico, on the other. This is one of the most won
derful rivers on tho earth ; its bed is almost a con
tinuous cataract, snd one of them a perpendicular
fall of more than ahuudrod feet. Near itsmouthit
presents the deepest chasms, considering their
width, that I have ever seen in a rlrer of Us site.
They wero cut by the river, by its own power, to the
depth of ono hundred feet in tho solid ruck. In
this deep channel are seen cavities, basins with
waterfalls, from which the spray arises in vast col
umns, presenting during bright sun tho rich and va
ried and beautiful tints of the rainbow. I traveled
up ono of the tributaries of this river near three thou
sand feet, in a loss distance than three miles, it
might bo termed a slnglo cataract. Often I was
obliged to hold on the bushes to maintain my posi
tion, or aid mo in tue ascent.
About tho electrical parcntago of tho Au
sablo wo do not feci so clear ; as to tbo won
dorful fcafurcs of tbo "High Hanks," ns they
are often called licre,we consider Mr. Mer
riam's statement fully upheld by " tho facts
of the caso."
it is very natural that our brethren of tbo
Administration press, in Vermont, should
throw up their caps over the event of the
National election. It gives them for Presi
dent tho man of their choico, and it contin-
ties them in tbo quiet possession or their

tho sum has continued to increase in geome
trical progression with Iho advent to tho

Thus tho present Emperor has spent fivo

tlio present Emperor must have reached tho
