Yea. In your ptiper mine optic beheld lines saying, black ink on white paper, a contrast like snow flakes on a nigger, that A WIDOW OF GENTLE DISPOSITION WANTS L some one to love wants to marry a congenial gentleman not over sixty, with a desire to improve ment. Address, Ao. Just my age to a duck's foot. Rather ambiguous, .ut means well, saycth I to I. Desire to improvement was good, blow work for a man of sixty to greatly improve a woman, unless she be well down the steel yards of years. I went. Quiet home-charming widow had seen forty winters somcwhercs know not where. Handed her your pa per with the delicious advertisement therein, like a raisin in a kettle of beans. She wi dowed. She smiled over her fan. She scooched her head gently, thus. She gently bit her upper lip and prayed, that is, she prayed mu to be seated. I was fresh from tho districts of ruralism. I had hoed the calves, milked the bees, fed the growing po tatoes, built sweet cider, and quenched my thirst with rail fences, and was just the rooster for the blooming widow's perch. I sat iu the spontaneous dcliciousness of the affectionate intercourse of that enthusi astic explorer of masculine hearts five hours that night. I was like a humming bird in a fanning mill. I squozed the widow the widow squizzencd me. I leaned my thinking box against her maternal instincts, and look ed into her eyes as a burglar looks around a corner. And all I saw was love. Says I, "shall we?" Says she "shan't we J" We went to a minister five dollars and all was over. Llow I reveled. Sixty years- of bachelor days in New Jersey had floctened over my head and things. I was a freshman. I was a icicle, only waiting for tho sun of love to thaw me out. She thawed me 1 We began to live. I tried to improve tho widow. I spent all my ovenings in improving her. She improved. Wo were wedded in April. April the onest. With the vigor of a spring chanticleer did I prove my devotion. Like tho first violet of vernal did I watch our &c, increase. " One day when I came homo to our cot in the mill, I saw spread out on the floor a fourteen year old lump of a ragged boy. 'Twas ragged Pete, of the Newsboy Brigade. lie wns on a lark. He'd been slashing about and had becomo hilarious. Ho showed - surface indications 1 being drunk. I wanted to know why he earnest thus upon us. lie said he wanted the old woman to give him half a horse. That was Pete's idea of a $5 bill. That cherubim was tho child of my adored. . I gave him the lu cre. He went I wanted to caress him with the toe of my boot, but ha looked too detri mental. I spoke gently to my wife about Pete. Sho said she meant to, but forgot when she saw mc, I ws so enticing she for got it. She said I mude her forget it. Pretty complimcut, wasn't it ? I told her that her Peter niusn t be a re-peter or I'd peter. She said fivo dollars a week would keep him away. I told her I was just in from the country, 6cc, but she did me five dollars, and I saw no more of Peter. She Baid sho had atoned for all that who could doubt her we went on smoothly. One day when I came home, two half breeds were on tho family bed, playing with a shaggy-eyed dog. The half-breeds were brothers. They were twins. They were of eleven years of duration so far. They wero in the boot-bhick business at the Eastern Market, and lived in a dry goods box there. They had dark features, and a peculiar kink to their capillary. They call my consort "mother." She had bore them. They bored mc. Words failed to relieve me. I spoke of Pete. She said these were her atone ments ! I asked if these had been atoned for. Sho said no. I felt better, for if they had I should have looked for four of an age, and all four clear black. I settled five dol lars a wock on the young Washingtons, and was again happy. .;. ' This is the second of Juno. I've been a father for a week. Says I, bully for New Jersey. Was married April first. Never knew an instance where improvement went on so rapidly. Age tells, blood is nothing. Aud such a buby. Will be a man if it grows up. It was like a newspaper that is well read. It has tho strabismus. It has red hair. I have written to my father to know if I had red hair. Mine is like tho driven over snow. Have written to my original doctor, who I used to term a cow catcher, to know if I had the cross-eyed when first borncd. Am waiting for a reply. Wife says it is because wo live at the forks of the road, opposite a red barn. She may be right. I hope she is right. If I had been ninety years old wo should have had this help to our census a mouth ago. That is on this principle. I have givcu up business. Thu loving disposition is proving too much for me. I sold my steers, corn stalks, and cow pasture to come to New Yoik to live. I sold them that I might bo here continually und improve the widow. Now look at mo. I'm clad in a pea-green dressing-gown. It is four o'clock in the morning. I have been walking tho floor three hours. This thing now asleep in my arms is our baby. Our flmt hahy. That is to say, on my part. It is our last atonement. I like baby. It's better than lobster salad. It's a vigorous baby. It never sloeps. I feed , it on paregoric and such stimulants. I am its nurse. It eats from a bottle. I walk the floor with it. It don't seem to like me. It yells as if its father had been an auctioneer. I never auctioneered. It kicks as if its pa ternal derivative had at Borne time of life been yackass. I never was a yackass. It squalls as if its philoprogenitor bad been a storm at sea. I never was one of them. Its mother is of loving, gentle disposition. She loves gin, and after drinking two buttles full, or empty, becomes gentle. She is gentle now 1 I have tied the cherub's legs together with a piece of wire so he can't kick. . I've put a court plaster over his mouth so he can't squall. I've tied a piece of paling to his back so he can't squirm, and sit down to write bow this affair is culminating. I've got Pete and the two "atonements" out of the way. I've got a sure thing on the wi dow, while the gin hold out. And I've got a tight thing on out cherub, if (Lbe court plaster don't burst So now I'll let him sleep in my arms, lying like an infant on IU father's lap. while I write.

Xhellaltlcat INmIoII Ilride Urn. ftltlc Account of lbe SlanKktcr on tlsc l'irst lny. (From tho military correspondence of the London Timus.j H-ADtiUAHTEIiS OF FlltST PllUSSIAJI Alt- my, SciiLOBS ok Sicmtow, June 27. Tho railway and high-road which lead down the valley of the lser from Tnrnau to Muuchcu gratz, run for a distaucc of about five miles from the former town on the north side of the river, but on reaching tho village of Podoll cross to the south bank by two bridges, which ore about two hundred yards distant from each other, that of tho railway beiug on the right, and that by which tho road crosses on the left, of a person looking towards Munchcngratz. Tho railway bridge is constructed ot iron ; that w hich carries the road across the stream is made of wood, and lies on a level with the causeway which is raised on an embaukmcut about ten feet above the flat meadows lying along side ot it. The lser at Podoll is nearly one hundred yards wide, aud runs with a deep but fast stream between steep banks, which only rise about four feet above tho level of thu water. By tho side of the road and on the banks of the stream grow large willow trees, planted at equal distances from each other, and about ten yards apart. Three roads lead from the plateau of Sichrow to the high road that runs down the valley of the lser. That on tho east a country road which leaves the plateau near the Schloss of Sichrow aud joins the highway near tho village of Swierzin, almost at sn equal distance be tween Turnau and Podoll; in tho centre the chausice from Licbcnau strikes into the high roud half way between Swierzin and Turnau, and the road from ticnt&chowitz on the west joins it closo to this town. Last evening Prince Frederick Charles threw a light poutoon bridge over the river a little below the broken bridge of Turnau, and occupied the town with a small force without opposition, ' Home's division marched at tho same time by the country rond on the east, occupied the village of Swierzin, and pushed its ad vanced guard towards Podoll. The troops directed on this point consisted of two com panies of the fourth Jager battalion, the second and fusilecr battalions of the thirty first regiment, aud one battalion of tho seventy-firs. Tho Jegers, who were leading, got to within three-quarters of a mile of Podoll bridge before they came into collision with Austrian outposts, but here they found the enemy, and a sharp action ensued, for the Austrians had six battallions iu the vil lage, and meant to hold the place and cover the passage of tho river. . , orEKlKO FIIiE. It was about eight o'clock, and the dusk of tbo evening was rapidly closing iu, when the Jagers first felt their enemy. On the right hand side of the road, about halt a utile before the bridge, stands the first house of the village. It is s large square farm house, with windows without gloss, but with heavy gratings. The Austrians had occu pied it in force, and their puttying pickets, as they retired before the advancing Prus sians, formed a line across the road beside it. As soou as the Jagers came within sight, the garrison of the farm-house and the formed-up pickets opened a bitter fire upon them.' From the 'grated windows and from the line of soldiers in the road there came one rapid volley, which told severely on the Prussian riflemen, but these went quickly to work, and fired about three tunes before the AustrisnB, armed only with mottle-loading rifles, were able to reply. Then the noise of musketry rose high, occasionally swelling into a heavy roar, but sometimes falling off so that the ear could distinguish the sepa rate reports." ' But this did not last long. Major Von Hagen, commanding the second battalion of the thirty first, which was fol lowing the Jagers. ou the first sound of the firing had put his troops in double-quick time, and was scon up to reinforce the rifle men. It was now nearly dark, and the flashes of the rUles, the reports of the shots, and tho shouts of the opmbatants. were al most the only indications of the positions of the troops ; yet it could be seen that the rapid firing of the needle-gun was telling oa tho Austrian line in the road, and the ad vancing cheers of the Prussians showed that they were gaining ground. Then, while the exchange of shots was still proceeding ra pidly between tho window gratings of the farm-house and the Prussian firing parties who had extended into a corn-field on the right of tho highway, there was a sudden pause lu the firing on the rond, for the .la gers, supported by the thirty-first, had made a oasii, ana were bearing the Austrians back beyond the farm-house to where the cottages of tho village road, and win closed on each side of the hern tlm !ifnrwli.ra 1,n1 ln.,;ln thrown some hewn-down willow trees as a barricade across the way , THURIBLE FIOUTINO. Then the tumult of the fight increased. Darkness hail completely closed in aud the moon had not risen ; tho Prussians pressed up to tho barricade, tho Austrians stoutly stood their ground behind it, and, three paces distant, assailants and defenders poured their fire into each other's breasts. Little could be seen, though the flashes of tho discharges cast a fitful light over the Bar ging masses; but in the pauses of the firing tho voices of the oilicers were hoard encou raging their men, and half-stilled shrieks or gurgling cries told that the bullets were truly aimed. This was too severe to endure. The Prussians, firing much more quickly, and in tho narrow street, where neither sido could show their whole strength, not feeling the inferiority of numbers, succeeded in tearing away the barricade, and slowly pressed their adversaries back along the village street. Yet tho Austrians fought bravely, and their plans for the defense of the houses had been skillfully though hastily made; from every wiudow muskets flashed out (iru, and sent bullets into the thick tanks of the advancing Prussians, while on each balcony behind a . woodeu barricade Jagers crouched to take their deadly aim ; but in the Btreet the soldiers, huddled together and encumbered with clumsy ramrods, were unable to load with ease, and could return no adequate fire to that of the Prussians, while these, from the advantage of a better arm, poured their quick volleys into an al most defenseless crowd. FIOHTINO IN TUB STREETS. As the battle in the street was pushed inch by inch toward the lser, tho Austrians, in every houso which the foremost ranks of the Prussians passed, were cut off from their retreat, and were sooner or loter made pri soners, for tho houses of the village do not join on to each other, but ore detached by spaces ot a rew yards, and mere is no com munication from one bouse to tho other except by tho open street. The whole of the Piussian force was now up, and, extend ing between tlio douses which the tirst com batants had passed by, cut off tho escape of .ncir garrisons, and exchanged shots with mo ucienders.. 1101UU11LE MIDNIGHT SCENE. With shrieks and shouts, amid the crash ing of broken windows, tho heavy sounds of falling beams, and the perpetual rattle of the brearms, tho battle was heavily pressed down to the narrow street, aud about lmlf- pnst eleven the moon enme up clear and full to show the Austrian rearmost ranks turn ins viciously to bar the Prussians from the bridge. The moonlight, reflected in thu stream, told tho nssailunts that they were near the object of their labor, and showed the Austrians that now or never the enemy must be hurled back. Both sides threw out skirmishers along the river batik, mid thu moon gavo them light to direct their aim across the stream, while on the first plank of the bridge the AuRtriaus turned at bay. and the Prussians pausing some short paces lrom them, tho combatants gazed at each other for u few moments. Then they began a fiercer fight than ever. The discharges were moro frequent, and in the narrower way the bullets told with moro severe effect, llerr von Drygalski, leading the fusileer bat talion of the thirty-first, a lieutenant colonel ot only two days standing, went down with two bullets in his forehead, and a captaiu ut tits sido was shot in botulegs; many men tell, aud the ijray liorso ot a 1'russiau held officer, with a ball iu his heart, fell heavily against the wall, kicking amid the ranks; but he was soou quieted torever, ana ut the moment men regarded but little such wounds as could be mulcted by au iron-shod hool even in the agonies of death. The Austri ans stood gallantly, aud made an attempt to set fire to tho bridge ; but the difference of their armament again told upon them ueru; and it is said that, galled by their hard for tune, they charged with the bayonet, but that the Prussians also took kindly to the steel, and this charge caused no change in the fortune ot the tight ; certain it is that tho defenders were ultimately obliged to re tire across the bridge. RETREAT OP THE ACBTlU.UtS. While this combat was proceeding slowly along the street, another fight .was carried on upon the railway almost with an equal progress, and witu an almost similar result. A party of tho Austrians fell back from tho point where Bliots were first exchanged, aud where the railway crosses the roud, along the line. They were pushed by some Prus sian detachments, but neither sido was here iu strong force, and tho principal fighting was done upou the road ; but Here, too, tiie needle guu showed its advantage over tho old-fashioned weapons of thu Austrians, for the. latter fell in the proportion of six to one Prussian. The railway bridge was not broken, but tho lines were torn up by tho retiring troops, aud tho line is not now pas sable by traius. The Prussians pushed over both bridges alter tue retreating Austrians; the latter threw a strong detachment into a large unfinished house, which stands by the chaussee, about a quarter of a milo beyond the bridge, and again niado a stand, but not of lung duration; they had lost many killed, wounded, and prisoners; many of their offi cers were dead or taken ; but they stood till they could gather in alt the stragglers who had escaped from the houses of the village, and, harassed by the pursuing Prussians, drew up sullenly by the muiu road to Munoheugratz. Thus terminated a contest, which, fought upon both sides with the greatest of vigor and determination, yet re sulted in a clear victory lor the Prussians ; for when the last dropping shots ceased about four o'clock this morning, there were no Austrian soldiers within three miles of Podoll bridge, except tho wounded and the takeu. There was no artillery engaged en either side; it was purely an infantry actiou, and the Prussians derived in it great advan tage from the superiority of their arms over their opponents, not only in the rapidity but in the direction of their tire, for a man with an arm on the nipple of which he has to place a cap naturally raises the muzzle in tho air, and in the hurry and excitement of action often forgets to lower it, and only sends bis bullet over the heads of the oppo site ranks, while tho soldier armed with a breech-loading musket keeps his muzzle down, and if in haste he fires it off without raising the butt to his shoulder, his shot still takes effect, though often low, and a proot of this is that very many of tho Aus trian prisoners ore wounded in the leg9. SCENES ON THE ROAD. The road to Podoll was this morning crowded with hospital wagons and ambu lance cars bringing in tho wounded; every cottago in the way was converted into a temporary hospital, and the little village of Swierzin was entirely filled with stricken men. Tho sick bearers, ono of the most use ful corps which any army possesses, were at work from tho very beginning of tho action. As the combatants passed on, these noble minded men, regardless of the bullets and careless of personal danger, removed with equal hand both friend and enemy who were left writhing on the road and carried them carefully to the rear, where tho medi cal officers seemed to make no distinction in their care for both Austrian and Prussian. Not only was it those whoso Bpccial duty is the care of the wounded who alono were doing the best to caso the sufferings of those who had suffered in the combat; soldiers not on duty might be seen carrying water for prisoners of both sides alike, Mid gladly affording nny comfort which it was in their power to give to those who over night had been firing against their own hearts. Nor is this wonderful, for after tho flash of the battle is over, and the din of the musketry has died away, the men of this army cannot forget that one common language links them to their adversaries, and that, after all, it is probably German blood which, flowing from tin Austrian, trickles over tho white livery of the House of Hapsburg. In tho village the utmost disorder cavo evidence of the severity of tho contest. Austrian knapsacks, shakos, clothes, and arms were scattered about in wild confusion. Dead horses lay in the ditches by tho road side. White coats and cloaks, which had been thrown off in a hurry of the Dght, lay scattered along tho road ; the trees which had formed tho Austrian barricade were still on the sido of the street, and held many a bullet. Tho cottages had been rausacked of their furniture, and their beans and roof trees had been torn down to form defenses for the doors and windows ; while along tho street and upou the banks of the river lay objects which in tho distance looked like bundles of untidy uniform, but Vhieh on nearer approach aro seen to bo tho bodies of slain soldiers. Sometimes they lie in groups of twos or threes, twisted together as if they had gripped one another in their mortal agony, and sometimes single figures he on their backs, staring with livid "countenance and ball-closed hazy eyes straight up against the hot morning sun. The dark -blue uni form with red facings of Prussia and tho white with light-blue of Austria lie sido by side, but thu numbers of the latter much preponderate, and on one part of the rail way three Prussian corpses opposito nine teen Austrian form a girlish trophy of the superiority of the needle gnu. THE NEEDLE-Ol'N. Close on five hundred unwouuded Aus trian prisoners have this morning been marched up to head quarters aud tho Aus trian loss in killed and wounded is very considerable. The Prussians have lost two otlicers dead and seven or eight wounded. Tho medical oilicers have ollieially reported that the proportion of wounded Austrians to wounded Prussians is as five to one. Thus has the needle-gun told both ou the battle field nnd in the hospital. To-day head quarters have haulted here. There has been no skiruiishiug.

I From Uermnn'iivn Tulcgrnpli To JUuku Itliickbcrry Wiue. The following careful receipt for making this excelleut ami wholesome wine, we find in the Country Gentleman. We reprint it in full season that the readers of the Gu mantoirn Tdtymjih may have at onco the benefit of it. "Have ripe fruit mash it into a pulp with a heavy wooden maul, and throw this into a vat (a tight barrel, with tho head out,)--and contituo adding ucw pulp till the bar rel is lull. This may occupy u week or ten days. The fermentation will throw the fruit pulp to tho top, while the seed that have been separated w ill sink to the botti-m. When this occurs draw off the clear liquor from the vat, by a faucet, a few inches from tho bottom, into tho barrel you inteud to keep tho w ine in. Then, to tho pulp that remains in the vat. add one half tho mn- suro of water that there has beeu pure juico drawn oil. Mix nud stir this, aud leave it till the pulp rises again, und draw off the clear liquor into the barrel. Put the pulp into a course crash bag, and press it as dry as possible, and add the liquor to thu barrel; which should now be full. Add to each gallon of liquor, two or thrco pounds of light yellow or white sugar. Two pounds will make a wine about the strength of claret; three pouuds makes it strong wine, which, at two years old, will pass for good port. The wino is now making itself, and will throw off nt tho open bung, all the impuri ties. The barrel should bo kept full by the addition of liquor kept for that purpose, anil if that gives out, 6wcetcned water will do. When the impurities are all thrown out, put the bung in tightly, and boro gimlet hole in it or the burrel, at the highest poiut, to allow the escape of the gas. This cau bo kept plugged, if euro is taken to open it once a day to relievo the pressure ot gas. When the fermentation has goue far enough, that is when tho wiue is of the projier flavor, which the maker must judge by tho tusto-r-rack tho wiue off into a barrel perfumed or steamed with sulphur, and bung it up tight ly, and let it stuud to ripen. The fermenta tion is now stopped, und tho wiuo should remain undisturbed for several months. It improves by age iu strength and flavor. It may be drawn off again if uny uuw fermcu t at ion sets up: aud the barrel a 'iiin fiuliihiir. cd ; but that seldoui occurs. As tho bitter priuciplo of blaekberries is in tho seed, care should bo takeu at the first drawing off, to get as few as possible into the barrel. However, ul-o remedies that. and if the wiuo is for medical use, the bitter principle had best be left iu it. Au ordinary cellar is cool tuouuh to keep wiue iu. Thu syphon Is not necessary." IHdcrberry lViue. To make this wine the berries should be gathered when perfectly dry, and if one is very particular in regard to flavor, tue ber ries separated trom tue stems, mosu tine, then add two gallons boiling water tuonenf pinnace, and let it stuud uulil it begins to ferment. After pressing out the juice, add three pounds sugar to each gallon j put into clean casks, jugs, or deniijolius, till them full, and keep them full as it tends to fer mentation ; then cork up air tight, or bottlo off. It will be tit for use in four to six mouths, but will improve with ago. If tho quantity to bo made is small, it mar bo pressed in a coarse strsiuer, or a piece of coarse cotton or flannel, or, what is better, a strongcask with holes thickly bored through it, aud put under a band cider-mill or cheesc prees. Oa a winter's night, when one has a cold and feds wheezy generally, we should like to know sny physio that is equcl to elder berry wine. : As an article to have in the house, not to be used constantly as a beve rage, but occasionally as a gentle stimulant a sore of medicine when one does not want physio, there are not many things equal to the juice of the elderberry. Both these statements are to bo qualified with the proviso that it must be good and pure. W.YV.Apsley'i.
