This was certainly rery provoking,

why, sometimes it" 6hou!d not be in

forth cne evening, where we three,
Morgan, May and myself, were drawn
np before tbe fire and settled for a
talk. Tbere was no time for mincing
matters, was my Erst idea, and with
this thought I dashed boldly out with

At tbia declaration, I was surprised
to see May flush up to a bright red,

it for its real true hospitality, tbe
solid, old time comfort of tbe farm,

was justly besiuting, as to which of
tbem I should fall desperately in love
with, wben my calculations were all
disturbed by an accident (or so I
suppose I must call it, though really
seeming like a special providence.
What tbia was, I shall tell in the best
way I know bow.
For some days after my arrival on
the farm my curiosity had been much
excited by tbe occasional panegyrics
lavished, by tbe youog ladies, upon
one schoolmate of their own, May
Stevens by name, wto was according
to tbelr highly colored account the
most perfect thing 10 tbe shape of a
womau tbea living. I tried to per
suade myself tbat nothing in tbat
line could surpass Nettie and Carrie,
bat still tbe reputation of this May
Stevens baanted me, and came like a
shadow across my new born passion.
I fonnd at last, as imaginary May
Stereos, and do what I would the
figure vis with me. At last I was
worked into an agony of curiosity
4t d trembled with some great pur
pose, which 6bould bring before me
the object of my tbosgsU and the
two sister's conversation. Is what
this would have ended it is impossi
ble for me at this ttue to say, had I
oot one morning, as I entered tbe
breakfast-room beard tbe startling
words from Nettie :
"And so ah is coming st last ! I
am so glad."
Whether it was tlat tbe train of
ray thoughts was upon that point st
that aaodent I cannot say but I
knew directly the whole matter. I
saw Carrie with sn open letter is Ler

words, I knew thac ibe hitherto only

things generally and r'pilliiig the con
teuls of eeveral baggage cars aloug
the road, to say nothing of frighten
ing half a-bundred passengers into a
condition bordering on lunacy. This
was a pretty state of things, and to
make it worse I eight was miles from
my destination, though, as it after
wards appeared, not a mile from the
next village, where I beard it can
vassed , a tavern, supper aod beds
could be had.
I was disposed to be agreeable,
and accordingly rendered all the as
sistance ia my power to the unpro
tected females for which I got my
reward, oa arriving at tbe baren of
refuge tbe promised tavern by be
ing informed tbat such a thing as
a bed for tbe night was an impossible
idea, and tbat with some twenty more
of the male gender, I must be content
with a cbair, while tbe beds were ap
propriated by tbe gentle sex. Slight
ly disgosted I swallowed my supper
and looked out upon tbe night. It
was a beautiful moonlight night and
verging on to ten o'clock. By Jove !
I would to walk to Hyatt's. Xo:
sooner said than done. Giving my!
carpet-bag into tbe landlord's bands
for punctual delivery at Hyatt's
next morning, I set forth. Eight
miles is trifle, a and just as my watch
marked a quarter after midnight I
went up the lane that lei to tbe
house. They were early to bed and
early op. I walked around the house
trying the doors; every one was
fastened. It was of no consequence;
my bed-room window opened on the
piazza; I would not disturb tbe
bouse; a bit of my climbing would
do the business and should it be fast
ened I would tap and waken Horace,
who was my room-mate and bed-fel
low. Tbe thing . was executed as
soon as thought of, and ray band laid
on tbe window, which yielded and I
was in my room. By tbe moonlight
that streamed in I saw tht tbe bed
was occupied, and from tbe heavy
breathing I knew that Horace was
asleep. I would not therfore, awake
him, but save the story of my mishap
for tbe next day. With this re flee
ticn I slipped quietly into bed and in
three minutes was oblivious. What
ought I have dreamed tbat nifht?
But I shall not anticipate. I lay fac
ing tbe window as tbe sun peeped np
above tbe distant bills scattering
the gray mists of tbe morning. My
bed fellow was breathing heavily but
it was broad daylight and there was
no more sleep in me, so I determined
tbat Horace should wake up and
hear tbe story of tbe railroad break
down. I turned quickly and gave
tbe sleeper a sadden shake. As rap
idly as my own motion , my bed-fellow
who tad Iain with his back to
ward me, sprang to a sitting posi
tion. There are such surprises as are
without terror, wbicb deprives us
nntil the brain has time to reason, to
act and think. Uocb surprises do
not generate Fpreams and faints.
They were expressed by open mouth
ed aad silent wonder. TUs was tbe
case of myself and bed-fellow as we
satnpward and stared. Right hj

A correspondent, after bathing in
tbe Dead feea, describes bis expert
ence in tbe following wards: Tbe
water, which is quite clear, and tear
ly the color of the N iagara rirer below
the talis, seemea to De a little more
bitter and salty tban tbat of Salt
Lake, as tbe body floated more easily,
and the difficulty cf swimmiog was
greater, on account cf tbe inability
to keep one's feet under water. So
large a quantity of salt is held in so
lotion tbat tbe water has what is call
ed I believe a ropy appearance, much
like that of tapioca soup. I observed,
however, that when we came out
tbe water, there was not so large a
deposit of salt crystals 00 tbe body
as after a bath in Salt Lake and tbe
feeling of the skis, icsttad of
being dry and prickly as I txpected,
wis rather oily and sticky. Our sup
per that tight was seasoned with
salt made from Dead Sea water by
solar evaporation. It was a little
lighter in color tban tbe best article
of brown sugar. Its crystals were
Urge and hard, and, though foreign
substances were evidently present in
0onsiderable quantity, was not un
pleasant to tbe taste. I was told
tbat two quarts of water will produce
one quart of salt, but ibis is probably
an exaggeration. To complete the
statistics of tbia remarkable body of
water, I may add, wbat manv of mr

An unique funeral ceremony took

in the legal profession. No larger
assemblage of distinguished person
ages has been seen in this city, on a

The remains were viewed by the
friends of tbe deceased, aod Colonel
Incrersoil pronounced over tbe body
ot Lis brother a brief, eloquent and

soll ceased speaking tbe members of
tbe family approached tbe casket and
