What raattor in it whother he Is to bo to t ho frolic or not? There'll be enough more thcro rcatye aaaured.'' MI know I know, Bridgj. I only asked be " "Taa, yea, ye only asked boouunu ye wanted to know. And 'e're only blushing, now, as ye'sc always NN to blush wlien that Stllttorinff body H . , , -n 1 1 mentioned. IOU are a Hilly irl, Mag, that's what you are, to bo ho cold M Pete Hannighan, who's a most dyin for ye thin blessed tninit; and whone nice Harm is fall of goodjthings he'd horlad to otTor your own nclf, if yi'd only givo him the least bit of encour agement. Well, ovory body has thoir own taste, to-be-suro. ' And with a dignified toss of the head, Maggie friend drew her bonnet-strings to gether; preparatory to bringing her call to a close. "O, Bridget!'' said the pleading voic of tho accused, "don't blamo mo so. Yon do not know how bud a hourt Pete Hannigan hau got. Ifyo'd only heard him speak to his pK)r, old, blind mother, aa 1 did once, ye'd never bo tho one to say such word to me. I know Dickie has a faltering tongue; but but, Hridgy, he's got a good heart of his own, that's fuller of good than any body's farm." And, half frightened at what she had said, tho blushing girl bentlowor over her iron ing, to hide the tears her full soul pressed to her eyes. Bridget's Irish heart molted instant ly. With genuine repentant o, she threw her arms around Maggie's nock and bogged forgiveness. "O, never you mind, darlin,' what I said. I'm forovor saving the wrong thing. There's enougn that would ho proud of your love, doar, but your own cloar heart will tfido ye right. And I might have remembered tln-t. too, before I went to blaming you with j my foolish tongue." Maggie, no doubt, remembered thut, "to err is human, to foriivo, divine,'' I when she gave her hand in token of reconciliation. She wiped away her tears, and carefully folding tho shirt she had finished ironing, luid it away, while a heavy sigh escaped her, as if) from wcaryneaa; though the absent look betrayed another cause. "We'll go early, wont we?" said 1 Hndgot as she lilted tho door lateli "Yea," replied Maggie, ponsivoly. 'Atwl von will ui'iir voiir lilmi rum ..II. ' . .. - . V brie drosa?" "Yea. "And I'll woro mine, (rood bye Maggio, dear." "Oood bye." A kiss and tho tVionds parted until evening. "Bridget shown tho light" o'rv Ireland's sons and daughters. And if the rustling of tho silks was not there, that broad, old kitehon resound ed to hanuier sounds. There Were n.usn.ng maioons uiere, ano nopoiu gwains, and music and dancing and coquetting. And, if all was not done 1, IJ Al 1 1-I a in too moat renuoa styio, tnoro was much good motive antl purity, as tho most oonsciontious ami delicate could hove desired. Away in the corner were Bridget and Maggio! And in close proximity were thel)ickie O JS oil and reto Han niKUii.aooub wiioiu uiey nu co.ueuu i -i a. I it i i i eti 111 lite morning. i It . I Tho lVionds had worn their blue cambric drosses, according to agree ment. Ami if they wero not eut pre cisely after "tho last Paris Fashion," they nevertheless, did credit to the industrious hands that made them. And tho deep falls of tho cotton laee woro just as delicious, in the eyes of their admirers, as the riebest blonde would havo been. Thoro was one among the crowd that night, whose entrance had hush ed tor a little time, the voice of mirt h . and given rise to many a fooling of pity in the warm hearts that beat there. It was a blind sister of Dickie O'Neill! "She wanted to come," he was say ing to Maggie, "and I told mothor if she would lodet her, I'd see that no harm came upon her." "I ought to brought my old bliml mothor, said Hannigan, drawing down bis chin, with achuekling luugh. "And many 8 tho thing you could u dono worse," tartly added Bridget, his late defender. The young tanner, failing to oxeito ridicule against his hated rival, cast an sngry glance at Bridget, and turn ing to O'Noil, continued: "Tis a hard time you must have of it to feed so many mouths, and only your two hands to work with. Yon must find you a wife who will bring yon lome land to live upon." "I would not have a wi-wifo lor the land she would brina rae," blushing 1? replied O'Neil, "1 love to work for the dear ones at home, and wo always have e-enough and to spsre." "Tiaaildoin a frolic yo can attend, thogh, far want of money," bitterly replied Hannigan redlining with vex ation. "O, tie upon you, Pete Hannigan," again said Bridget, "to bo speaking theso to the liko of Diekio O Neil. He's got a big, warm heart of his own. that's worth a thousand times moro'n your fow acres of oold land. And I know." sho added slowly, "of some one else who thinks." But an im ploring glance from Maggie caused nor to stop. An angry light was burning in Hannigan s eyee. But ho darod not ay what be wanted to, because of M aggie's progence, whoso lace was red with confusion tho shade of satiffae- tion upon it being preemptible only to the saucy Bridget. A sodden relief for all came at this moment. A soil pleasant voice was calliug, "Diekio!" "Yes, Mary," au worod tho brother. And the young man was at his sister's side in a moment. "I left you a long time." was tho brother's kind remark. "I did not consider how quickly tho time pass ed." "0, no, it was not long. I have not boon lonely. I have been talking to tho girls, und but just stopped to lis ten for your voice I din not hear it so I spoke. But what is tho matter, Dickie bow hot your hand is!" "O, nothing I guess yours is co cold that's all. 1 11 load you to tho ftro." Tho sister strained her sightless orbs, as if to look in her brother's face. But it was in vain, and sho contented herself to be led by him whero ho chose. It waa a pleasing sight, for thoso who hud hearts to uppreciuto it, t'i see that young man leading about his blind sister, and trying to amuse her, earful ly guiding her stops, snd stop, ping whero ho thought sho would bo iUuis (l Iii tlid not leave her many times to join tho morjimont. Only onco more, for tho sake of loading Maggio into the whirling danco, he left her, seating her whero tho sound of tho music would full tho most ideas antly upon her sensitive our. When ho wont back to her, Bridget again beard Hunnigun trying to ridieule hiin.Jwhich so roused her indignation that she longed for an opportunity to toll him how dctcstiblo ho was. To appease lnr wrath she managed to glvo him a disagreeable shove when over they passed or re-passod each other, during tho mysterious changes of the dance. And bo, vexed with her impudence, at length made it con venient to catch one of the brass but tons of his coat into one oftho flowing r utiles of her dress, and tlid not stop his forward movement until the dain ty trimming was shorn of all its beau ty. Bridget's wailing was long ami hearty, at this distlgurment of her favorite blue. I ho dunce was atop - - - i - m a aa .tat at 1 pod, and liostsol sympathising Iricmls ,horV(.rK nt tt loss to conceive what t rowded around her. m-M there can he for such assurance. "Never you mind, darling," said : others again, give their IViondsev- rv one- j reason to think that they nro reul "It can surely be mended us good t ,i(ren of (iod, make tho dreud pas us new, ' comfortingly suitl another.

And so Bridget was comforted, nt length, and the dance went on; though not until she had called Hannigan a miserable, old poice of awkwardness, and declared thut ho 'wasen t fit to dance with tho dncont girls." "That's more'uyou can prove, Miss Bridget," was his retort. And so llie muster was settled for that night; each, j i. however, TOW ing future vongeneo up- on nie inner.

Deepand bit ter were tho curses thut followed the fortunate rival; but they did not roh him of Maggie's lovo, or tho sweet pleasure of having net- by his side. How those full hearts unhiirthenod themselves, during that moonlight walk. But. wo are sure that both experienced a full satisfaction oro they parted at Maggie's door 'O! Maggie, Maggie, I'm so glad of your choice," said Bridget, as th sat busily drawing together the bro ken mosties of torn lace. "It was a poor fool that I was, to bo sure, to want you to havo that mean, wicked fellow, who has no good word to say of any one. It would be a sorry life ho would load you, honoy, with your kind heart that's always making you do somebody some good." And, stop ping for breath. Maggie's friend wip ed away tho tours thut were fulling fust upon tho shining cambric. '1 know. Bridgot, yon would des piso hi ra, as I do, when you como to gee him more. But, indeed, I'm fur from wishing any hnrm to him. and hope he may yet be taken in the right way." "He wouldn't soo it dear, if he was, for he is alw ays looking for bad. Only to think, of his making fun of Dickie, because ho hnd ln poor bliml sister there, who had as good a right us any ono to have her hoartmade glad with the sound of our frolic. No, no, novor a good thought could stay with Poto Haunigan, I daro docluro! But come, teil me, Maggie, that's a darlin' is it settled that you and Diekio will bo marnod soonr "Yes, Bridget, I may as well tell you, for you will know all about it before long," replied Maggie, thought- iully. "You'll never tell him what I said about him yesterday morning, will you doar?" No I guess not." "Well, it's nothing, after all his stammering. It's only onco in tho while a word; and then ho always says just what ho wants to, at last, and it's always somothiug good, too, so whoro's tho difference.' Indeed, Maggie, I don't believe he'll stammer so much now, that ho knows you love him. I daro say he's always felt embarrassed like, when he was noar you; butnow he'll fool more free, and talk easier." Yes, ho did last night, Bridgy. He bid mo 'good bye, and told me when he would come and soo mo, iust as woll as you or I. And, 0, Bridgy, he's so good! Now that's tho thing, atler all, isn't it?" And again the cambric dress was saved from being soiled, only by its polished surface, over which the friends' tears glidod, an offering at ouch other's feet. "There, it's all us good as over now," said Bridget, holding up the mended garment, triumphantly. Yes; it'll novor show a bit wlioro it was torn." And I can wear it to your wed ding, Maggie ' And I hope there 11 bo nobody there that'll tear it again!" Always wish u good wish, suro, it's you that deserves a good hus band." Ami throwing her arms u rouml Maggie's neck, tho friends promised everlasting constancy to euch other, whatever tho future might make of change for them.

T., ) Juno 4th, 1857. j Mr. Goodwin: I would have writ ton some tunc ago, but my dear wife was very sick. Evorybody thought she could not recover, but sne is doing well now, and is able to be up a little. Tho neighbors around us have boen very kind to us in our affliction. I wish I was able, and had time, to write somo on our political affairs, now going on in this Territory. Kan sas is a remarkable country; there is always something interesting going on, and when one excitement isgoing down, another ono is going up. Yes terday, tho Northern Methodists had a meeting of the trustees for tho pur noso to build a church in Tecuinsi h. Wo, tho mombors, intend to do all wo can, and I Loliovo wo go beyond our means, I do not know that wo can succeed. 1 havo seen in tho American a letter from Mr. Black ledge, formerly of rranklm county, Indiana, dated and written at Wyandott City, K. T. I could but smilo when I road his stato mont that all was peace in this Terri tory, Mr. Blackleugo was little aware that, while he was writing this peaco ablo letter, tho samo day, thero was war and destruction going in Tocum- sell, ami that tho battlo-ax and war hatchot was boing used to dostroy proporty. Whisky has dono very much misi hiof last winter, in our town. Several valuable lives woro lost by it, and the ladies of tho town and neighborhood had a mooting, and weut to this houso whero liquor and whisky were sold, and told tho soller that ho must takobis ardentspiritout of town within three days; if not, they would como and dostroy It all. Now, it lianponod that thoso ladios woro all r reo -Stato ladios, and the whisky sellers woro all pro-slavery. Tho ladies wt ro true to thoir promlso; they broko through tho looked up doors, und broko all tho barrels and kegs, und lot tho spirits looso. Tho pro slavery men, friendly to whisky, did murmur, that it was a political action against their party, and said that ono Free -Stato storo-keopor was soiling whisky also, and thoy inform ed tho ladios of this fact. Amongst tho ladies wero thowifojund daughter of this samo Free-State man. This wus a very critical question, what to do, but thero wua no help for it, and so tho ladios till went in a company to said store, and destroyed that two barrels of tho best old ryoalso. How this store-keeper, and his wife and laughter rejoice and delight in in it, I am not able to learn. Our political affairs are very inter esting at present, but I am tired to write about it, bocauso our cause is so little understood by the pooplo in the States. Wo havo to plant corn and tend to our farming buslncgs. We are waiting to see if President Buch anon ife Co. nro roally foolish and tyr annical enough to enibrco such things us luws! Perhaps when that bur co met pushes against tho world there will be ehange somewhere I still say und believe as I havo said in my ! former letters, that the American poo plo will and cuunot stand it in thoso times to havo their dourest rights and liberties tuken from them. Our mot to is, tho majority shall rule. We are for the 1'iiion, tho Constitution, ami the Orgunic Laws, but wearo against the fraud practised in all of our elec tions; we would like to go and vote it wo could, and help ourselvos. I hopo wo will havo our rights and froodom, somo time, and if we do, wo don't need to bo thankful to tho present Democratic party for it.

The following note, received by Dr. Yattier, Postmaster of this city, has been handsd us, and wo publish the same that we may bring the mat tor as prominently before tho public as possible: Post-Officb, NewYobk, Wednesday, May 27. Dear Sir: Attention has been ca led to a disease said to prevail to some extent among hogs at the West, call ed Hog Cholera. I have been requested to obtain some information on the following points, to elucidate, if possible, tho causo, and thereby effect a cure. May I trouble you to inform mo , con cerning the following porticulers, viz: Is there much pork fattened in your, country? If so. still-fed or not? Does the disease prevail to any extent? Is it con h Med to stil-fodpbrk? Tho nature and symptoms of the disease, duration of tho samo, and is it contagious? Perhaps, in the absence of any per sonal knowledge of your own, tho desired information may be obtained, on inquiry, among your neighbors. An early reply willmuch oblige Yours, truly, ISAAC V. FOWLEK, Thero aro many theoriers advanc ed in rogard to this very fatal disease, and although much inquiry and dis cussion has boon had in this part of the country, where tho greatest in terest in this Western product ts felt, nothing satisfactory has aa yet been discovered as to the causo of the disease or for its suoccssfu I treat mont. We have conversed frooly with many raiBors of pork in Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana, and satisfactorily con vinced thut hogs, in whatever mannor fed, oither at the distilleries upon, whisky slops, or in pastures orgrain, they havo been afflicted and have died by Bcoros from the disease called for want of a better name, tho "hog cholera." The general impression, and well founded it seems, is that the disoaso is contagious. In absonco of anything more interesting upon this matter we publish tho following, a now theory, extracted from orte of our exchanges: Wo havo already noticed the alleg ed developments made by a dissection of "departed" hogs at tho Kdinburg (Johnson County .Indiana,) distillery, which indicate that the "cholora" is really a "consumption." We soe, still later, in tho Paris (Kentucky) (Stitvn, a lotter from Dr. Doughty to Dr. Pockhovor, in which another theory is advanced, likewise based on dissection. If both these statements are correct, and wo certainly arc not in a condition to dispute eitner, "hog cholora" would appear tobe a sort of a namo given, in total bewilderment as to tho real disoaso, to pretty much any complaint that win kill a hog, excepting, possibly, tho hammer and knife or tho slaughterhouse. Dr. Dougherty says: Upon careful examination I found tho brain, spinal marrow, lungs, liver, heart, stomach, the largo and a purtofthe small bowel wilhoutdisoase. But that portion of tho small bowel noxt the stomach was literally filled with worms to the extent of several foot, and in a high stato of inflamma tion. The worm was from two to five inches in length, roscmbling, in ap pearance, the Ascaris of tho human subject, but harder, moro active, and apparent i more tenacious of life. So losely wore they crowded in tho bowel, thut their form could be dis tinctly traced through itscoasta. Tho disoasd, then, of which the bog tlios, is inflammation of a portion of tho small bowel, caused by this hard, activo worm, and producing the sym toms noticed in its course, vix: droop ing, indisposition to oat, diarrhea, and finnlly, convulsions and death. The treatment, it seems to mo, must be altogether preventive. I do not beliovo the worm could bo dislodg ed by any treatment after inflamma tion is sot up; bnt before this, whilo the hog is apparently well, able to eat and drink, I have no doubt that they may lie destroyed or removod in many instances by judicious manage mont. Tho Doctor thinks the disoaso ' iiu'ommunicuble andtho bestremo- dy is somo medicine to dislodgo tho worms in thoir course of development. NEVEB BE DISCOURAGED A bite philosopher suvs that h lOW- over desperate tho game may be, "novor do discouraged." Thoro is wisdom in this. A few years since Botts purchased a lot of stocks, on speculation. Tho next day tho bot tom foil out of the money market stocks took a tumble. Both) was seized with fear and trembling. To provont boing ruined, he incroaaed tho flavor of his coffeo one morning, by adding sixponeo worth of arsenic to it. Poor fellow, had he played out his cards, ho would havo made a thousand dollars by the oporation . A fow weeks after he was "fenced in with mahogany," stocks took a turn and wont up liko balloons. Wiggins, gomo six months since, ondorsed for a friend, nnd to the extent ofB50,000. His friend could not meet his ongage ments. Tho notes woro protested, W iggins took to drink drink brought on delirium tremens, a shaved head, and a visit to tho lunatic asylum. Wiggins got discouragod too early. His friend met with a windfall paid off his indebtedness, and is now ono of tho richos men in the city. Wig gins, wo regret to say, is still at the asylum. Ho onjoys good health, but will havo it that he is "a mud machine without diggers." Again we say, never bo discouraged, but keep fight ing tho battle of life manfully. aiSSta it No historian dare tell the truth. If he did, his book would't sell! Who, ffien, are we to believe? That's the question. The following sketch is given of a receat sermon by tho Rev. Dr. Dur bin: He showed the following important facta: 1. That the Christian religion haa the effect of stimulating industry, and promoting the happiness of man, physically considered. 2. That only Christian nations conduct the com merce of the world, and that this has had the effect of causing the decay of the prosperity of heathen countree. 3. That all Christian countries in crease in population: while the others decrease in population; and, in proof oi mis iruin, ur. introin reierrea to the empire of Turkey. 4. That if all Christian nations, including the TJ. 8., 1 were to combine, they could do as they please with the rest of tho world. hey . Tl hat within the last nrty or a hundred years, all the inventions which have been pattented are for the benefit of not a few, but for the many, the millions. In heathen countries these things do not exist. In fact, the doctor drew a strong contrast between Christian and anti -Christian countries, and in sisted that the church is not alone in terested in thoso revolutions; but all persons livining in Christian lands shorld assist in the amelioration of tho condition oftho heathen world THUM Show us the young lady whose waist haa ever been encompassed by an arm of toe sea.

Break tho eggs very carefully into a pan of scalding water, and let the water come gradually to a boil, removing the eggs with a skimmer aa soon as tho white is set. Serve on a hot plat ter, with a little salt, pepper, andbut tor, or lav the eggs on not buttered toast. For invalids use cream instead of butter. srEvery virtue gives a man a de gree of felicity of some kind.
