A modest and exceedingly pretty pirl, plainly attired, entered one of tin? gold smith's stores ou street, aud seeing; a jren- tlc limn was etiifuirod with the proprietor, she timidly shrunk usile until lie should bu nl leisure. The assistants were also occupied with customer-, whoso dress ami appearance showed th "in to belong to the rich ami upper circles, and so she wus suffered to remain Cur some time standing there before she could lie nttetiiled t The gentleman was a fine, noble looking person, with a remarkably polished address, who, seeing her waiting, stood usidu nud said to the goldsmith: "Do not occupy yourself with me now, Mr. Uroachurd: I can examine the watches by myself while yon sec what this young person wants, who has been waiting here so long and patiently to get un opportuui'y to spenk to you." "What do yon wish, Miss?" asked the goldsmith, with a look that Conveyed a re proof of her interrupting him whilefengaged with a customer oT more vultio to him. . The girl hesitatingly approached tho coun ter, and taking from her -bosom a small gold clasp, bent over to him, aud said, iu a lyw, trembling voice: , . . ;i ' " I wish, sir, you would be so kind as to keep this u few days, and let mo have; seveu dollars ou it. Low as she spoke, her soft, trembling touus reached the ears of McIIuury,- 'he gen tleman who was present, lie turned to ob serve her face and hour the reply of tho gold smith to this timid and painfully uttered re quest, Tho goldsmith took tho clasp neoiii fully bctwecu his fingers and threw it dowu, when ho Raid shtii'jily to her: "This is no pawnbroker's shop, girl: and if it was, that thing is nut worth two dol ltirs." " It is of inestimable raluo to me, sir it is the only thing valuable that I have," she answered, earnestly, and her cheek slight ly flushed at tins ruilo reply. "I don't know what vou mav value it at,' he ans.vcivd, witli a cool laugh, glancing at Colonel McIIcnry, whom ho saw severely eveing In iu. ' 1 would not give you six shillings for it." " But, sir." pleaded tho girl, " I must have seven dollars to-day, and I havo no other way of getting it; 1 was iu hopes, sir, that you might let mo havo the sum on it. I will certainly come back and tako it up again. "I tell vou," answered he, angrily, "I keep no pawnbroker's shop ; go to Jews." fie " Ther won't give mo but two dollars; and 1 want seven. " And so yon think to get it of m"??" The youug girl was about to speak again, but, as if not knowing what farther nrgu ment to urge, hesitated and turned slowly away, when she checked herself aud again siiokn to him. "Sir, sua said, m a tunning tone oi earnest entreaty, " my mother is lying very II, and our rent is duo ut twelve o clock to day, und the person we sew for. having dis appointed us id our pay, 1 uave uo oilier re source thau this. Oh, sir, will you not take this clusn only fur a few days, and I will then repay vou?" Mr. Urochurd felt that Colonel Mclieury a eyes were upon him waiting'au aaswer, aud he wished him to think nun a man or uusi uess, (which meant, iu his notion, a man without a heart,) he answered promptly and sternly: "ao. Do you tiiiuli we are simpletons here? If you have nothing nioro to say please stand aside for customers." " Well, uoiouei, wuai oo you iuiiik oi those? They are the latest importation, full jeweled, aud warrauted iu all points. I will sen you tue one you uave just tuiu uuwu iur one hundred aud uiuetv-hve dollars. The geutlemuu, however, was not heeding him, but watching the youug girl, whom he saw leaving the counter with a ueuvy, droop ing step, uud approach the door. Her face had struck him .for its. sweet, intelligent loveliuess, -and her modesty bad for nim an irresistable charm; but her plea of poverty deeply interested his feelings aud eulisted them in uer Penult, lie had Bileuiij watch ed the progress of her interview with emo lions of contempt for oue aud pity for the other. h , .' J : k,. . Her hand was on the knob of the door, when advancing toward her he said: i "You asked, I believe, for seven dollars? lie spoke with gentle interest in his tone that at once awakened a hope iu her heart aud again brought the light to her eyes, and toe hue to her cheeks, as tnc diui letitiy an swered, " Yes, sir, I should not have been so ur- (jeut ".None too much so. There is n ten dol lar note and I have no Bniallcr bills." ' " Sir, you nro too kind " " Xot a word I am hnppy to do you a service.' ' Tako tho clasp, sir, thonch I am asham ed to offer it to you, since the gentleman says it is so valueless. ISut to me it is as foolishly thought it valuuble as file, and L must bo so to others." I don't wnnt it, child," answered Mc- llenry, feelingly, putting his hand aside while she urged it upon him. " Indeed, sir, you must take it, for 1 shall feel iu some degree under obligations to a tranger. Hesides, I wish to- call and re deem it. Will you givo mo your address, ir?" And as she spoke, ho still declining the jewel, she laid it on the show box. "Ult, no matter but it you lusist, it is the United Stales Hotel." ' Thank you, sir, vou can never know the blessing of others that will follow your kindness to me to-duy." Thus speaking and and looking upou him with nu expression of gratitude in her tearful eves, she left the hop, forgetting the golden clasp which she had left upon the show case. ill you look nt one of tuo watches iow, Colonel Mcllenry 7 sunercilliously asked the goldsmith, without lifting his con demned eves. Xo, sir," answered the gentleman, sternly, and taking his gloves and cane ho walked from tho shop of the avaricious gold smith, who, too close to risk a trifle to re lieve the wants of a poor family, probably lost a larire amount of purchases his wealthy customer might have made, as well as his owu respect, such as it was, for avarice al ways sinks into its shell beforo the broad sun of benevolence. " Now there goes a man who throws away h'is money upon vugra'its, while I ueed mine to support my family," said the goldsmith, looking after him. " lie thinks me a miser and I think him a fool. Ob! here is the clasp, ufter all, she left for hitn on the show case, and he was too proud to tako it away f be saw it. Seven dollars 1 It is not worth more than five." lie opened it as he spoke, and taking a harp instrument, tried the firmness of the 'old. It is good old Mexican gold. It might have cost twenty dollars. Ah 1 what a star of diamonds in it I" he exclaimed, as in working about with a point of steel he dis covered a cavitv. " Twelve diamonds of the purest water' This is indeed valuable. Let me see; thev are worth at least live no n- fred dollars. What! to ask as little! Xo, no, slis could not cituer ; lor sue would not let it go for so smali a sum, or ask for nearer Is value. I suspect she wus Ignorant of the cavity which I detected only by accident She has stoleu it, aud never will return for t." . . "Ah, ah, Abraham -Brochard. thou hast made a good, evening's work of it," he said. exulliugly to hitn. I lieu looking around among bis shop boys to 8io if he was observed, be carefully, yet with a cheerful air, locked the clasp up in a private drawer, and taking out the key, placed it in his pocket I lo had hardly done so when Colonel Mcllenry reentered, aud without speaking or even looking at him, he cast his eyes upon the showcase for the clasp, which he recollected, alter going out, tno ouiig girl had laid down but did no'- tako up again, and so turned nneu lortt. Abraham Brochurd was busily engaged in replacing, the watches in tne uoc sum cover- niis, and preserving silence ami ignorance. At length Colonel Mcllenry spoke: " 1 hat youug persou luid her clasp on this use, sir, which 1 neglected io pick up. It s .i pity it should bu losi, shu valued it so highly." " The clasp! Oh, no, 1 have not seen it, sir. She took it ugain. " 1 1 id you see her?" " Yes, oh yes! ' I had my eyes on her, and he said at tho same time you'd uevur see your ten dollars or tho clasp again." Hie gentleman eyed mm stoauuy ior a mo ment, and then glancing around tho show case again, us it in search ol it, lie quitieu the shop. Several days had elupsed, and Colonel Me Henry had (mite forgotteu the circumstuueo wo have narrated, when, as ho was passing leisurely along tho street, he felt his sleeve suddenly pulled by some one ho heard ruu- behind him, and looking arouud he be held, with a cheek glowing with pursuit, the girl ho had seen at the goldsmith shop. Oil, sir, 1 am so liuppy to lrave louuu you, sue said, ut once uuuressiug nun as ue stopped aud witu pleasure usieueu io nor. " I was ut lengtu uble to get my pay, auu uy other, work have earned euough to repay you the ten dollars you so kindly gave. i ou don't know the good it did the suffering you relieved the evil you averted. ' llera is tne mouey, sir. Xav. mv cood girl, I do not want it I niuile you a prescut of it at tho time, aud did nut expect yon to return it. 1 am gliui, now- ever, to find that vou have the disposition to do so, and that I was not deceived iu my es timation of you., You must tuke it. sir, -said sue, wnn ingenuous earnestness. " I should be dis tressed to be longer under pecuniary obliga tions to an eutiro stranger, liesides that, I would be very glad to have my clasp, if you please. " Did vou not tako it up from the case where vou luid it dowu?" lie asked with em prise aud justly directed suspicion. . " Ao, sir. inueeo, sir, x uopu it is uut lost. It is one of couutless value to me. It was given to me by by" " Lfv a sweetheart." added ho, smiling. " He is now dead, Bir," she addod, with overflowintr eves. ' You do well to value it. I did not take it up. Are you sure that you left it there?" " Yes, sir, hopiugyou would take it ana keen it until I paid you the money." " Well, my child, I have not got it, hut I believe the goldsmith has. . Let us go to him. , . - , On their arrival at the shop, Mr. Brochard denied ever having seeu it ttiuce she weut oat. and that he saw her take it with her and place it iu her bosom, as she left the shop. The young lady turned pale aud inconceiva bly distressed. - i ' r Come with me. ' I will find the clasp for you," said Colonel McIIenry, offering bis arm and leaving the goldsmiths with her. " I do hope I shall find it. sir, she said as they walked along. " It was Kobert'i last gift. It was triven him iu Cuba by rich lady whoso life he had saved from the water. He was a sailor, sir, aud had little to lcavo mo but his memory und my poor clasp.' Oh, sir, If it is lost I never shall for give inj-self for offering to pledge it But, sir, our extremity wus very great." Colonel Mcllenry stopped lit the Justice's offioe, and briefly and clearly mndo his com plaint, oud in a few momeut3 Mr IJrochnrd was brought iuto tho presence of the magis trate. He appeared to be in great tiepidalion and was pale as ashes ; he had been suddenly taken without waruing from behind tho coun ter, leaving his shop iu charge of his astou ished assistants. Colonel Mcllenry and the young lady, being sworn, deposed that they last saw the clasp on the snow case, where each went out aud left it ; the former further deposed that he had not gone three steps from the door beforo ho returned and found it missing, aud no oue was iu the vicinity but the defendant. The goldsmith was then called up to be sworn to his knowledge of the facts. He ap proached the stand where the magistrate held iiieciiite, lam nis Hand upon it with a per- ceptible tremor of the body; but love of money was stronger than the fear of the law, and he took tho oath. It appeared as if be would sink through the floor when he took it, but the moment it wus done he recovered his audacity. At this moment an officer who, at tho suggestion of Colonel Mcllenry, bad been privately dispatched by tho justice with a search warrant to the shop of the gold smith, now entered and placed something in the magistrate's bauds, after briefly whisper ing to him. " Did yon over see this gold ornament be fore?" asked the magistrate, holding up the clasp before the youug lady's eyes. "Oh, it is my clasp it is my clasp!" she cried, springing forward. " Yes it is the same," answered tho Col onel. " Aud did you ever see it before?" de manded the justice, sternly, holding it in tho direction of the goldsmith, who had seen it at first, and was appalled with fear and con sternation. Instead of replying, he uttered a wild hysterical laugh, and full his length iu in convulsions on the floor. He was a few weeks afterward taken from his prison and tried for perjury; but his rea son forsook 1iim and he is tiow an inmate of the madhouse. Thus avarice, and parsimony, aud indifference to the sufferings of tho poor are punished in this life; the acts of the sel fish inau will show how acquisitiveness, if wrongly directed, is fatal to the possessor. Colonel Mcllenry proved to be a bachelor, and though a little over thirty, his heart was keeuly ulive to all the sensibilities of our nature. . He could feel for the down trodden poor, and sympathize with unfor tuuates. To this truth none could more at test than the youug friend of the golden clasp, for ere two moons had elapsed, she re joiced m the euphonic title ot Mrs. colonel Mcllcnrv, surrounded with all the appliances of wealth that a grateful heart could enjoy, or even wUI.. iler poor, afllicted mother was well provided for, wheu she recovered her health, and happiness aud prosperity Bmiled upon ull CA 15 DOMESTIC RECIPES.

Kute O'Brien, who , murdered Bridget McDermot in Buffalo, was on Saturday sen' tenced to be executed on the 18th of De cember next. When usked if she had any thing to. say why the judgment of tho law should not bo passed upon ber, she arose ami delivered an incoherent appeal lo the court. She spoke in a low voice, und ber words were broken by sobbing, so that it was impossible to catch all that she said. Its substance was that she had killed Bridget McDermot, but that she was so mnch under the influ ence of liquor that she did not remember the commission of tho deed. 8he was out of her senses. She spoke of her children, of whom she has two, a boy and a girl, and expressed the wish to bo permitted to see them. She alluded to JSelhe Rbeelian, "the witch of the patch," in whose boose the loul deed was perpetrated, ond charged that she was the cause of the murder, because she hail furnished the liquor. Xellie (the mur deress said) was a bad woman. Xext she al luded to the woman at whoso house she had obtained the axe, chargiug the responsibility of the crime upon her because she did uot tako tue weapon Irom ber, and mado incohe rent mention of some other woman, from whom nn axe had been taken under similar circumstances. At this poi lit she broke down, sobbing piteously, but recovered par tial command oi ncrselt in a lew momeuts, aud went on in a rumbling appeal to all present. She said there were several old meu on the jury who might meet their Maker before she did, and they would then know what she had suffered. She implored compassion, saving that she had worked for many respectable people, mentioning Ur. ltochester, Air. l illmore, and others, nud they would all testify to her good character. In the course of her re marks she alluded to the possibilty of ber never coming out of prison, which showed that she did not expect the extreme sentence of the law. At the conclusion of her remarks Judge Masters pronounced the sentence, and as the last words were spoken the trembling woman seemed to realizo her doom and burst iuto a passion of weeping, the sound of her sobs tilling the courtroom as sue was led away. Another Civilizing Gallows Scenk. Kufus B. Anderson was executed in Austin, Nevada, on the 30th ult, for the murder of Xoble T. Sloctim. The usual crowd sur rounded the gallows, and the usual military force and attendant clergymen had been em ployed.

San Francisco, Cal., Oct 22, 18C8: During the rebellion, scares uud panics were common in invaded and beleaguered cities of the Atlantic states, but ttie worst of these scares was light compared with the pauic from which the citizens of Shu Fran' cisco suffered yestoiduy by the visitation of an earthquake. .The first shock occured about five minutes of eight o'clock in the morning. The weather wus dull and foguy, and tho atmosphere threatened rain. In fact, it was not snch weather at all as we usually find accompnnyiug earthquakes ' Hot, oppressive weather, without a breath' of air, with an unnatural, stillness generally over the fuce of nature, are generally its ac- compunimeuts. The shocks, were contiuu- . ous, aud increased in strength ior ncuny a minute. The last was tho worst. The earth wus plainly seen to uudulvte by those who were in the open air. I was sitting at' breakfast with my wiTo, children, and mother-in-law, when the first occurred. My wife nervously asked me, "What's that?" I replied that it was a heavy wagon passing, but a glance showed me that no vehicle was ueur. I had hardly spoken when tho second und heavier shuck came, and my wile, with the most intense- . fear pictured on ber fuce, shrieked that it was un earthquake. Then cuino the third' shock, aud they- all shrieked in fear and mental agony: My wife cried that th waiv was opeuiug. rjlie had seeu a crack in thu plaster seperate tor over an men. ! or -.Uuui a second or two I was completely unnerved aud helpless, but I then partially regained my composure, and, putting my arms round the women, I shouted that there tins no danger at all let the earthquake be as bad as it might, as we were iu a frame house. My wile said that there was, as she thought the earth was opening. I replied that it was impossible, as I kuew we were upou good ground and not upon one of the many swamps of the city which have been covered over. Whilelwus quieting and dirrecting their atteution to heaveu and its preserving care, each second s shock became stronger than its predecessor, and with each the shrieks of the women and children worse.. These, and the fear of the dreadful phenome non which was upon us, actually made my flesh creep. It was snch a look in my wife race that first unnerved mo. finally, tu much less time thnn it has takeu to tell this, the last and strangest undulation occured. When the shocks ceased, -all of the company but myself were so weuk that they could not ataud, and indeed I was . weak enough my self, though it was neccessary for me to show a calmness which 1 did not feel. o louuu that everybody had rushed to the streets tue place or greatest danger. . niy laniny would have hurried out of the bouse also ' had I not restrained them. There were four person! killed, all of whom lost their lives by running out of doors. .
