Tall, finely formed, with a pleosaut ee, and buir tossed back from forehead browned by anient suns and shaded by gome sorrow, be auddenly appeared on. day in onr vill.io, when a eumtner ghowur bud come op aud wag deluging the streets. Tbe expression of bis countenance was anx ious ; aud there was a questioning lift abuul the eyelids, with a blight despondfng curve at tbe corners of the mouth. Altogether, be reminded one some way of one of those adver tisements which appeur in the daily papers, headed "Lost." There wus such a sugges liveupss to bu tuarcbed for some treasure gone. The gay shop windows with their prints and gorgeous flannels the tall church spire just nuished, and intuudeil to "point a moral" for every eye tbat sought its summit the pretty cottages with their white clapboards an J cool greeu blinds had no attractions whatever for tbe uiuo with the blue umbrella. Down Gray street and up Drown, through Yellow aveuoe aud so on through Lune, be made bis way till be disappeuied among the cluster of bumble tenements to let, dowD near the river. A stranger in a country towo is publio property always. Tbe vexa'.ion experienced at not knowing "the truth, the whole truth," concerning him, is readily compensated by imagining a great deal uioie than the troth ever contuiued. Every surmise was greatly aggravated aud exaggerated, from the hot tbat the stranger bad not been known to ex change a syllable with any person since bis sudden advent upen our streets ; and be might have dropped from the clouds witb tbe first great drops of that heavy shower, briuging a sample 61 bine sky along for an umbrella, for aught anybody positively knew to the con trary. Aud what conld bo want down among those tenements to let t Nubudy lived there likely to interest a man of bis appearance. The only person with Boy claim to respecta bility, aud ber's was doubtful, was a young, pale-cheeked womun, who some time ago came quietly among us, and solicited sucb bits of embroidery as the ladies might have to put out. There was a mystery about ber and a mystery about a woman is always a relmke. Her work always came punctually home, and not a fault could bu fouud with it. Ifutiy one wondered whether she brought sighs or tears witb ber delicate vinos or teu dnls, their curiosity was never satisfied s for ber sad gray eyes told no tule, and ber com pressed lips guarded her secrets well. She sal at borne all this summer day, plying ber needle and thread, uutil the rain, puttering upon the wevnvealeu window sill, drew ber attention from ber work. She glanced at the clouds then, and after watch ing tbem awhile, leaned bur bead upon her baud, aud areamed over a day-dreum which came to ber ufleu now ; aud which she could wake from without annoyance, for she was very suie it would come to ber again. She saw herself a elud hearted girl tbe pride of an iudulgeut father's bouse ; her sole rival ib tbat father's love, one ouly brother, younger than herself, but borne she loved witb a devotion which all big follies and fits of evil temper (set down by tbe lather as tbe sowing of wild oats) could not alienate. They bad been left motherless at au age when children miss a mother least and need ber guidance most. Left to hired nurses, who iu turn left them to themselves, tbe boy aud girl grew op willful and headstrong their only mutual ground their mutual love, which, witb Clare, was pure and devoted j witb Graham, tinctured with tbat selfishness which clings closer to boys under sucb a sys tem to tutelage than girls. And this waa all in the home of neb John Boyd, iu merry, merry England, many years ago. Hut tbe pale-cheeked woman's day-dream, dreamed iu one o( those scorned tenements to let, while tbe summer rain came down, was not broken yet. She remembered ber manly cousin George, who came down from shire one pleasant spring to visit ber father George Meyers, who, after the first week, f ave up the exciting chase, tbe many plans aid out to Graham to share, and devoted himself wholly to bis Cousin Clare, till be was merged in tbe lover, and bis appeal to ber father was met with a burst or stormy invective, ilow vividly she remembered the moon-rise in tbe evening of tbat same day, bea she stole out to tbe park to bi fare well forever to tbe man her strong Datura would cling too always with an ondyiog love. Tbe intended parting eodui) as many another before and siuce bas ended. "Why," George orged, -should they yield op their lifelong bapp.Dete to the whim of ao old man who had out lived bis routh aod tbe memory of its passions and Its hopes? Why should they in spriog-ttaie brui m their breaste tb blight t)f auU'i u? Why ,1, M tb.y prt, since existence henceforth could he nothing without one another t True he was not rich ; bet what man was poor with youtb io his heart and health in bis reins? No.no; tbey would live, they would love, they would wed!" Ere the moon went down tbat night many a mile lay between Clara aod the bouse of her father. Tbe sunshine saw her George Meyer's wife. Tbey did not brave the storm tbey knew was raging io John Boyd's heart, but tbey felt its fnsy wherever they turned their wandering steps. 1'be young bosband found that youtb in bis beartand health io his veins were fragile weapone to foil sucb in fluence as John Doyd could exercise, and disappointment met him at every torn ; and the fires of anger began to kindle in his breast toward the father who could thus subject to privation and misery the Clare who was hie daughter still, albeit George Meyer's wife. Tbe only gleam in their cloudy sky was tbe adherence of Graham through all things. He visited them wher ever tbey wandered ; bnt be never failed to bring accounts of bis father's continued anger and threat of unmitigated Vengeance, From bis conversation, Clare learned lliut ber brother's course was wilder tban ever be fore, and tbat his companions were such as would, one of these days, bring a deeper sor row to ber father's soul than she had ever done. Io vain she expostulated. What wag It to him that be waa a sole link left in the old home between bis father's yooth and old age 1 lie roust sow bis wild oats, be said, aud the time was not yet come for bins to dash away the cup of pleasure from his lips. Nuy, be would drink the wine of life while it lasted, its lees would reacb bira soon enough. After repeated struggles to sustain bis wife in a manner suited to ber former station, George, at last despuring and discouraged, accepted the position of lodge-keeper on ao estate adjoining that of his obdurate father-in-law. If he dreamed of reaching his heart through bis pride, be fuiled signally lor John Hoyd's nature wag all pride : his heart only a necessary machiue to tbe maintenance of that characteristic. Clare found one comfort in ber position. She could ruam io her father's park, revisit the huunts of ber free aDd gladeoaie girl hood, and bere, often joined by ber brother, could not have forgotten, bad she chosen to forget, t e step which bad ex led ber from tbe untrammeled enjoyment of these scenes. From sentences let drop by Graham re cently, Clara grew fearful that ber father bad reetncted biui in his allowance of funds ; aud knowing ber brother's desperate nature, dreaded lest be should resort to cards or other means of keeping himself snpplied with money. Tbe bead keeper of bis futber's premises had biuted to George that Graham was leading a headlong course, and threw out insinuations that should be detect and tuke into custody the poacher or poachers who bad recently annoyed bis master so much by carrying oO' bis pheasauts end other game, that the old gentleman would regret he bud uot let tbe rogoe escape. At this Clara turned deadly pule and exchanged a glance with ber husband a glance which . the Dead keeper remembered well afterward, j A few evenings after this George was re ; torning from a neighbor's estate, where he , bad been to reclaim a gun lent some time j before, aad in order to shorten tbe distance leaped tbe pulling which enclosed bis father j in-law'g ground, and was hurrying on through the narrow path, when tbe bead keeper sud denly stepped Irom behind a tree end con I fronted him. George recoiled at first, for be bad thought it was John hoyd, and be had no desire to meet bim anywhere, much less upon bis own ground- lie held out bis hand to tbti keeper witb a sense of relief ; nor no ticed the keen look witb which the other re garded bim, nor the thoughtful expression of his countenance as be attended him to the last stile dividing bim from bis borne end saw bim safely over it. Several nights after this, George was sent for to set op with a corpse, aud Clare remain ed eloue. She watched ber husband as far as she could see bim, with tbat dim and unde fined presentiment of evil which every wo man who bus lived and loved bas experienced at some time. Tbe night was cloudy aud dark, a high wind rising, and tbe agitation of the outer world but served to increase tLut in Clara's own breast. She tossed restlessly upon ber pillow, and day bad not yet dawned when sbe burned on her clothes, and think ing to meet George returning, went out through the lodge gate, climed be style, aud struck into that path ou ber futber's estate which she fancied George would tuke in ro tating to her. Sbe bad gone but a few steps, when tbe crackling of twigs, as if crushed by a buinuu foot, attracted ber at tention ; then followed a shot, instantly suc ceeded by a dull clump, as a pheasant fell to tbe ground. Tuen another guu was discbar ed, und still another, and a lull which Clure kuew was not the fall of a pheasant, for it was accompanied by a man's deep groan. Clare rushed forward in tbe direction of the tiring, and came suddenly io view of a pros trate and lifeless form extended on the ground aud recognized it as ber father's- Over bim, with pule and frenzied feature, bent a face she kuew too well : a face marked bere and there witb bis victim's blood, aod the band be was slowly withdrawing trom tbo dead uiau'g beart was gory I Tbe murderer lilted bis eyes tbey met those of Clare; but the next instant she was gone without a word, und she was prone to believe it was but a vision of ber excited fancy. Ao bour afterwards, as Clare sat io a sort of dull misery io ber room, a Knock startled ber, and tbe bead keeper came in. Clare's face could oot grow any paler, but it seemed to ber, ber beart was turuing while. "I have bad news for yon," the man said pityingly as be saw Clare's quivering lip. "I don't knew bow it was, tbe master last night insisted en taking my place ; end toward morning, as be was going the rounds, be wa shot, ma'am shot dead I I hurried on as soon as I beard tbe firing, bnt the master was still and cool quite gone. YouuMr. George was a beodiug over bim, ma'um, qoile pale and frightened like, bis own guu dis charged beside bim, and a dead pbeasaut not far off. We took bim into austody, aud be is now lodged io jail. I dr- aded this job of telliog you, ma'am, but couldn't get rid on't no way." "You did oot say any luiband.'" Clare burst forth : "yon are mistaken it was oot him. Ob 1 cao prove it was oot bim." "I hope you cao, ma'am, sure I do ; but everytbiog tends agin bim uow. There was bis owo gun, with bis name oo tbe lock, close by for oo thing." Sb shivered : for she knew to whom, with out ber husband's knowledge, sbe bad lent lbs fowling piece only a few oigbt's before. 8b sank back breathless upon her chain aod, a the keeper went oat, fell into a deep stupor, from which she was aroused by some oo bathing her lips and temples. She opened ber ayes epoo ber brother's face. It rl aod aexioes, aod sympathizing. 1 -.i i sluiok from br wistful glance. "This Is terrible business, Clare," be said to her, kissing her tenderly. "And George! Graham, he shall not suffer for ." She stopped, and what she might have said was lost io a burst of reliev ing tears. 'He shall not suffer' if we can help him," Graham answered, gently. "Calm yourself now, and read this note he hue sent you." "Did he send it by you t llve ym looked Opnn him in prison ?" Clare cried with a be. wildering look. "As goon as 1 heard of his arrest I flew to him," was Gruham'g quiet answer. Clare sank back upon her pillow, and read the hastily scrawled lines her brother had thrust lulo her hands : "Dkar Ci.arr Do not he cast down. I am in prison, but you urely know I am not guilty of this awful crime. 1 woa returning to yon in the grey of tha morning:. 1 took the fatal patb which led me directly tn your father's dead body. I knelt aod placed my bund npoo his heart, and, es 1 did so. wag discovered there by the keeper and two of his men I Appearanceg are against me; but never, in my biltirest moment wag I guilty, even in the thought of such a deed. Can ynu remember who borrowed my gun after I car ried it home from Norton's? It wag found upon the spot. Yon see how important it is for me to have this bit of evidence cleared away." Clure witb trembling lips, read this oloud to Gruhatli. "You do not remetnbar who borrowed the gun, do you ?'' "1 do, distinctly," Clare said, fixing her searching eyes upoti the culm face neas her. Graham rose and walked to tbe window. There wus a long painful silence, which wag not broken till the door closed behind tho young man's retreating form. Upon Georgn'g trial, evi ry bit of evidence turned against bim; The speaker spoke of the rcceiit snneyance from the poaehers ; bis having mot George once or twice iu the park with that selfsame gun in his hands ; the well known fued existing between the accused and deceased ; his being found, pale and bloody, beading over the corpse, his fowling piece discharged beside him. Then came the evidence uf the ninn w itb whose brother's corpse he bad watched tbat night, showing at what time be left the house and thut, at the usual pace of a man, be would have reach ed the fatal spot about the very time the tiring was bcurd. 'J ben Clure was called upoo t!ie stand. It had been positively denied by George's coun sel that he had the gun for several nights before the murder. CUre was expected to show who had borrowed ber Lusbuud's gun in the meantime. She took her pluce without glancing at George, with whom she had not beeo allowed the least intercourse since his incarceration ; bnt the eyes turned involun tarily to a distant corner of the court room, w here her brother's eyes looked at ber from a face blanched to deathly paleness and wan from fearful anxiety. Clare could tell uotliing. If she knew who borrowed the fowling piece, the terrible shock she hud endured bad driven tbe circumstance wholly from ber recollection. Sbe bad nut noticed the gun siuce tbe night her bnsbuud had brungbl it home from Norton's and hung il in its accustomed pluce. A death like silence reigned as she sat down, end Clare saw two Humes of crimson shooting up over ber brother's pule cheeks as you have seen the red aurora boreulis streak the white northern sky. She turned then to ber husband. Ilis eyes were fixed upon ber with a wild, doubting expression in them, lighted by the veiy depth ol despair. She sewuied to feel that a gulf bad suddenly yawned bulweeu thorn. She stretched upon her arms to him, shrieked out his nntne, aud fell inanimate to the floor, When she recoved her senses, she saw no familiar object. There was tbe sound of rushing waters end the tread of many feet. she sprang to tbe lljwr, opened tbe door and looked out. She was on board a vessel. "Whither bound?" she asked iu dreamy tones, of some one uear her. "For America," was tbe quiet response. The captaiu, at that nuinieut observing ber stepped forward and placed a note ia her bands. "Your brother ordered every comfort and attention for you, iiiis.h," he said ; "and I hope you will make free to ask for whatever you wish during the voyage." Clure mechauically read tbe papers thus thrust inte ber hands. "1 will explain oil to George," it said. "He is Condemned, but be shall not die ! I will move heaven and earth but he thull be saved. This, though, is uo longer the land for you. 1 might have gone, you 8y, iustead of ynu. Oh, no ! tori cun save aud you could not. God bless you ! forever bless yon, Clorn !" Ob, tha agony of those loop, long days ! What would her busbaud think of her? llud she not read his glance, which told ho kuew she had suppressed tho troth which might have saved bim? Did bo not look upon her, the wile of his bosom, as his betrayer ? Would be oot curse her for ber cruel desertion ? Could she trust the brother who bad taken advantage cf her insesibility to tear her, per haps forever, from ber husband's sight, to ex plain everything to him as be bad promised ? Could he, would be really save, as be so con fidently averred be would ? Torn by these contacting doubts and fears, tbe weary days at sea weut by for Clare like a slow proces sion of chained convicts ; aud when, at last, lauded in New York, the great city was a burror to her, end she fted away from its be wilderiug sights and sound, and buried her- eelf in a quiet country village, selecting sucb shelter as ber sleuder purse could pay fur. This was the history which, day by day, the pulu-cbeeked woman, down iu one of those tenements to let, conned over und ever agaiu Uow bitterly sbe accused herself; bow sbe puudered and poudered, dreamed out results wbicb sbe knew were vain, and indulged her self with hopes sbe dared not cherish. Wea rily d)d aha work, determined to go back to the sceue of all brtr misery, to learn the end and be relieved of Ibis frightful load of sus pense. Sbe had no news from her brother, and she must believe ber letters never tacbd their destination, or were never answered. So sbe mused tbis summer day, witb tbe rain falling down, while ber bead was oo ber band and a bitter s'.gh burst from ber com pressed lips. "Clare I" a voice said, close to her a voice full of holy joy aod rapture "Clare look up!" Sbe did look up. Outside tbe low, little window, stood the man witb the blue um brella. Clare did not screen or faint away. She pressed ber band very hard upon ber heart, and gave a recoiling spring from ber chair. The next inetaul tbe blue umbrella closed, end, witb its owner, sprang into lb little room. Clara stood lilt eae- transfixed only a pleadiug look about tbe eyes aod quiver about tbe pale lips. Tbe mao approached and opened his arms "Clare, sny poor, suffering, persecuted wife aw not welcome, tbea ?" Oh ! how the cotes of tbe woman's sou! flew open then how the pent-up grief of 'uiibuo jjuureu loriu, suutviug tun biioi, p." 1 ih form with a force which brought pitying tears even to tbe eyes of the husband. "Andyvu forgive me all, George? Yoa have sought me ont you love me still ?" "Forgive yon, Clure ? Was 1 not the first grief you ever knew the thorn in jour path ? Did I not blight your happy girlhood with serpent presence In your Eden I, who could give you only love iu return for all yon gave up tor me T Yv hen I come to know oil tlitl I not rend the struggle you endured between the love which had grown with your growth, for an only brother, aud a husband who after all wu.i, as it were, but a stranger of an hour who hud deprived that brother of your sis terly influence, but for which this last great misery might never have come about ? For give you ! oh, ('tare ! a thousand times yea ; and for months I have sought you everywhere. To-day, when I saw the shower coming up, I stopped at a ceuntry inn for shelter. There I drew forth your miniature, and, as it lay I before me, the landlord saw it and exclaimed: '1 know a lady who looks just like that She nursed my brother's little boy through a fit of sickness lately," Then I felt that my pilgrimage was ever. I received explicit di rections bs to your whereabouts, ond as the storm burst overhead for tbe first tune in weary months." "And Graham?" "lie used every effort to effect my escape, but failed signally ? His wild career contin ued, with only tho one apparently steady resolve to soften its reckleness, tbe hopn cf savang me. lie finally, at some orgy, insulted a young captain in the army. He wag chal lenge;) ; he fought and fell. The last act of his existence wag to reveul the spring of a 6ccret drawer which rontaioed his confession, and made me a free man. Your father's property reverted to you. Yon have only to jirove the identity and claim it tbo-jgh Eng land, Clare, can he no home for us I" The next doy the embroideress was gone from our little town. Every one was asking bnt nobody know, witb whom sbo bad taken her departure. Only one fuel was ascertain ed, which wus, that it was with tub un with TUB JILfE l.MHRKt.LA. Ifl'tsccIIaiKous. EXTKAC'RMI ART I'lIKNOMKN A IN BoRIMrl fok Oil. in Ca.nada A number of residents of Michigan went over to Sonibra, C. W., in the early part of October, and commenced boring some fifteen or twenty feet from a creek, ondbr the beiiel that oil would be found, and on the 17th of the month, when they bud got down about fifty-seveu leet, tbey struck a vein of gag. On removing their anger, which was sev eral feet in diameter, the gas rushed with great force from the aperature, and continued to throw up dry sand for an hour. It then ceased, ond the boring wus resumed ; but es soon as tbis was done, the gas again rushed up with such violence as to throw the drill a piece of iron one and a half inches iu diame ter, eight feet long aud weighing fitly pounds clean cut of the bole, and it conliuued to discharge gravel, water and stones, some of tbe latter weighiug tweuty-five pounds, np into the air a distance of one hundred feet. The stream widened out tn the diameter of a barrel after leaving the hole, and the quan tity was to ruise the creek considerable above its ordinary level, though it is bere above twenty five Cet wide.. After the flow of water subsided, the gas was fired, aod an explosion took place which shosk tbe ground for half a mile, end t lieu continued to send up e sheet of flame as high cs the water bad previously gone.

Cultivation of the Cranberry. From the (Jermautowa Telegraph Mr. Editor, In compliance witb your request to furnish yon with a cranberry arti cle, the following is at your disposal : A long series of experiment and close ob servation, have established some points which ia is absolutely necessary should not be over looked by any one entering into tbe business of raising cranberries. Ibis vine might also be called a marine plant, so great is its love for water, and so soon ooes u periou wueu aeprivea ol a lull supply oi tuis us necessary aument. 1 be first aod most important point, is ta select a piece of ground wbicb is always moist, eveu in tbe severest jummer droogbls ' end if it has a stream running through it which could be dammud, and in which you could place a small draw gate, io order to flood or drain at pleasure, so much the belter. Stuguant water will soon kill the vines ; consequently ponds or puddles having no outlet or current, should be avoided. Kecoodly. Having selected a spot as de scribed, unless Ibe soil be nearly a pure sand ot peat, it will be necessary to remove the enure surface to the depth of several inches ; or, if preferred, to cover the existiog soil to Ibe duplb ot tnree mcnes wun eitnersand or peat. Any attempts to raise cranberries upon a clay soil must prove futile; tbey may be raised upon gaudy loam, but the poorer Ibe better, for Ibe presence or either animal or vegetable mailer io the soil produces a redundancy of vine, but ao almost entire failure of btrriei. Thirdly. It is very necessary, after having set out the vices, that tbey should be kept clean from weeds aud glass for the first two years; afler wbicb tbey well so completely cover tbe ground as lo require uo larlher attention on tbat source. . Fourthly. Be very careful in your selec tion of vines for planting, otherwise you uiuy bave a flourishing growth, but no fruit. None but oua experienced in the cultivation of the crauberry.can select lb healthy or beariug from tbe unhealthy or barren vines ; especially as tbe I utter bave much tbe most attractive appearauce, being stronger aod greener than tha fruitful vines. To accom plish tbis, it will be oecassary either to select from a yard which vo bave seen iu good bearing, or to bay of a dealer iu whom you can place implicit confidence. Tbe cranberry win is very bardy. and when once fairly rooled, needs but little farther at tention. It maouer of growth, starting from the root, is to throw out a ruuner of Irom two to five feet ; from this springs upright stums or shoots uf from four to six inches iu l oib on which are borue Hie berries. With eich succeeding season these runners extend iu length, producing, new uprights the stems of Ibe previous year iucreusiug io length aud continuing io bearing, until tbe giouud i j entirely covered or snuffed, a it is technically termed. Like all other plant, the erauberry is list blelo tbe attacks of certain insects, which either injure lb vine or destroy tbe berry. l b twta attack to aw growio at or aooui tba lime f blossoming; it doe not attack the old growth, but commence at the bas of lb new aod work upwards. It presence is at once kuown by the appearance of a fioe web which encircle tb apper portioo or tbo plant. Tb fruit worm is lbs most dssituo- tive making its attack on the berry about the last of July, or beginning of August I be only remedy known lo save the vines Trorn these two insects is flooding, and with out facilities for this, the grower will suffer severely. Tho crop ig gathered aboot the first nf Oetober, when the berry is fully ripe, eqd belnre it hag been touched by severe frosts. Hand picking is generally done by women aud children, but it jg both tedious and ex. pensive ; end where a large yard is to be gone over, ont of the question. Raking or ocooping me eerrieg is decidedly the most expeditinui manner, although it is objected to by gome as beinu destrueLivH in Hi tf i ii a a 1 big may be obviated by raking alwnyg in one direction, and will also be of some advantage hy thinning out the vines when they become too densely matted. Any estimate as lo the cost of putting in an acre of cranberries, must of course depend upon the locality of the place, aod the facili ties which the neighborhood BtTorda for nrn. curing vines, lobor, seed, Ac. ; consequently it would be almost useless to give the expeu- seg attendant oo reclaiming swamp lunds, or : irrigating dry localities ; each farmer it is premiued being as well posted np as the writer. In tbe locality from which I write, in Bar lington courty N. J., which seems to have been intended by nature for tbe cultivation of this berry, end where the wild vines are found growing on all tbe low grounds, producing berries as fioe in appearance and superior in flavor to the best cultivated berries grown iu Massachasetts the cost of briogitig an acre into cranberries may be reckoned as follows : j.ano per acre, $20 Clearing and turfing, Vines.

This vexed puss exiromely, aud he eaid,"As long as I live I will eat first and wash my face after ward" which all cats do even to tbis day. Tub Fi-our Alls. Io olden times there used to be a famous tavern in England, uni versally known throughout the kingdom m tne I our Alls, on account of tbe bouiely dis- I play of a great political truth oo its swinging j sign-board. It bore the picture of a king, a ; priest, a soldier, and a farmer. Out of the month of each were the words : Says tht king, "I govern all." The priest, holding u his uanda, and rolling np the whites of tm sleepy eyes, says. "1 pray for all." Tbe sol dier, cocking a huge gun, says, "I fight fu all." Lastly, in oua corner stands the furmei the most honest looking of tbe group, pullin a purse reluctantly out of his pocket, und h exclaims, "I pay for all I" Samuel Rodger said "Those who go t heaven will be very much surprised at tb people tbey find there and very much su prised at those tbey do not find there."
