"I tell you what it is, gal," said old Mr. Lippe to bii daughter Busan, "I'm determined never te Leva edicated fel ler for my f on-in-law ; that' a fixed fact." "Cut, father," laid Susan, "educa tiea don't make or unmake a man any mora than riches do. It's the soul, the principle, that constitutes a man." "Wery true, Susan," rejoined daddy Lippe, "and I've found precious little principle in college-bred fellers. I tell yon that I've eot along veil enough, and alius made my mark." As the old man said this his eye roved out of the windew over his broad and well improved homestead with a glint of seit-satutaction. Susan's father was no exception to men of his class, who, when they im bibe an idea, are pig-headed in their adherance to it Susan understood this trait ef her father's, and letting the argument drop, relapsed into si lence. While old Mr. Lippe entertained such notions of letters, and, by the way, was always taking pains to inform everybody concerning them, he had deviated somewhat with respect to his only child, Susan, who had improved the advantages bestowed by an excel lent publio school, situated in Stan hope, a small village adjoining her father's farm. Her mind, too, being naturally of a studious cast, she had stored it with an unusually large amount of information, which display ed itself in a refined conversation and well-bred vivacity of manners. To these graces of the intellect was com bined a beautiful person, and, as a matter of consequence, her hand was the coveted puze of more than one young man in lie neighborhood. To the blandfihmcnta of the sterner sex, however Susan turned a deaf ear. The young Stanhoppers loved her fath er's bread acres full as well as they did his daughter, who, with the quick in stinct of a woman, penetrated the shallowness of their protestations of love, .besides, there was a young law yer who had entered suit for her heart and won his case, while teaching school a short time previous to his admission to the bar. It would have been singu lar if the daughter of obstinate Lippe had not been equally obistinate in the constancy of her affection for Henry Coverdale, her letigitious lever. Of this attachment, however, daddy Lippe was blissfully ignorant. He had never seen young Coverdale, and that young gentleman being well aware of the antipathies of his con templated father-in-law towards school masters and their ilk, prudently re frained from v visiting Susan at her home. The accommodations of the house of a maternal aunt of Susan's, in Stanhope, were vouchsafed them, her uncle, a harness-maker, rather liking, than otherwise, their clandes tine visits. In this way the lovers managed to keep the fire on the altar of their hearts fanned to a bright flame. The impatient Coverdale de sired to bring his suit to an issue, but the beautiful Susan!wouldnot consent to an elopement With the hope of moauying her sire s views on the sub ject of educatiea. she had introduced the theme, with what success as is re corded above. Thai night, after family prayers, quite an animated colloquy took nlace between Susan's parents. The door of Susan's chamber being ajar.she became an innocent listener to the conversa tion, which, as it concerned herself alone,proved rather interesting. Moth er Lippe was in Susan's secret, and fa vored it with all her miglfc. "Now, old man," said she, as that functionary was covering up the fire, the last thing before going to bed, "its downright mean in you to oppose Su san's ijees about learning. I'm sot not te hev any ignorant scalawag rooting roundj arter my darter." "I rule this roost, responded daddy Lippe. "And I'll make the roost for you," reioined the dame. "Times ain'tnow what they was when we was youngsters. Just think of mating Susan to Mat. Awl ; or vet to Chris. Gabby, the shoe maker, who has about as much of an ijee of books as a hog has of meetin." "There's no mite of use argufy iug about it, old woman ; I'm sot "And so am I," replied the irate dame; "And we'll see who'l sit to the most purpose. If Susan can't marry the kind of a man she wants to, she can stay at home, and that's the end of it." With this clincher Mother Lippe turned her face to the wall, and re fused to say another word. In the meantime, Harry Coverdale was gradually winning his way to emi nence. As a speaker, he stood head aud shoulders above any of theyoung men, his asseciates at the bar. The re sults of his efforts also began to flew in upon him in a golden stream. Yet, still ho remained a bachelor, though many wondered. Still there were no signs of old Mr. Lippe relaxing iu the least from his views on "education." However things were destined to shape themselves entirely different to what a mere observer might reason ably hope to expect. Repub in that Faith let us to the end, TIONESTA, PA., TUESDAY, JUNE 6, 1871. This grew out of Coverdale's love for Susan, which now assumed the cast of impatience. One day a young man in homespun rnrb presented himself at the house of Mr. Lippe, and inquired if he wanted to hire a hand on the farm. The old farmer eyed him for some moments, and finding him remarkably well favored and knit together, said : "Where are you from Yf "I live at Monroe, when at home," replied the young man. "Raised on a farm T" "Yes, sir." "About how much do you want a month T" Whatever you think is right." "You'll never get along in the world, nnless you drive a better bar gain than that," said Mr. Lippe. "But I'll tell you what I'll do. You shall work a month for twenty dollars, and after that, if we suit one another, we'll bargain for a year. . "Agreed," said the young man, and was forthwith installed as hired hand. As the reader guesses, the hand was none ether than Henry Coverdale, who had commenced to put into opera tion a plan to gain the old man's con sent to his union with Susan. Time wagged along. Old Lippe was mightily pleased with his hired hand, and often praised him to the woman folk. Indeed, he looked with a dree of complacency on his atten tions te Buaan, which began to bo marked, and Coverdale was on the point of popping the question, when a circumstance happened as follows : The farm of Mr. Lirme was a cart ef a tract, the title of which had formerly been in dispute, though it was in deed and in equity his. Just at this time one of those land-sharks that infest the country, raked up a .t i t i , . . 1 wonniess ciaim, ana entered suit lor possession. This proceeding was so obviously absurd and rascal I v. that Mr. LiDDe merely laughed at it, although at the aavice oi nis nirea nana ne appeared at court to refute the claim, supposing, however, that his bare word would be all-sufficient to dispose of the scoun drel of a land-ebark. His hired hand also concluded to lose the day and eo with him, m order, he said, "to see what a judge and court were like. Old Mrs. Lippe and Susan accom raoied them for the purpose of mak ing some purchases, as they could get better bargains in the county town than in Stanhope. The conversation of the family had placed Henry Coverdale in full dos- session of the facts in the case, and he had manifested such an interest in the affair, and appeared to be se anxious as to the result, that the old man was not astonished to see him enter the bar and take a chair by his side. He no ticed, also, that his dame and Susan were among the spectators in the court-room. The case was called, and the lawyer for the plaintiff arose and made out so plausible a statement that it en meed the old man dreadfully, so much that he could scarcely contain himself until the lawyer concluded. The moment he sat down the old man sprang to his feet "See here," exclaimed he. "Here are deeds, and every man in this court room knows me well ' enough to know that I never got them by rascality, or claimed more than wasiustly mine." "All this may be true, replied the judge, "but the court demands legal proof, relative to the points at issue, I resume you have an attorney, Mr. ,ipper "Never said a word to a single one. I never thought it worth while," said the old man, perfectly aghast at the turn matters were taking. At this bttge Lippe s hired hand rose to his feet "May it please the court, I will un dertake the case for Mr. Lippe," said he. "A pretty cose you'll mxke of it," said the old man. "You can plow corn a wonderful sight better." "I assure Mr. Lippe that Mr. Coverdale is perfectly competent to the task," said the judge, who was well acquainted with tha young lawyer, and who, though ignorant of his present relations, fancied he smelt a joke in the actions of the parties. "Mebbe your honor is riht" said Mr. Lippe, "bnt plague take me, if you don t find bint a likely sight bet ter farm hand than lawyer." A general titter ran around the bar. The suit proceeded. The young at torney having previously mastered the whole ground, entered into its merits with such force and clearness as astonished even the court But how shall we paint the surprise of old Mr. Lippe! It took him by storm. At every word of the young lawyer he seemed to distend with astonishment, until his amazement was something so ridiculously appalling as to convulse the entire audience with laughter. Teal after peal resounded, and even the fat sides of the iudi;e, forgetting their gravity, seemed ready to shake to pieces with merriment. "Who, who, who are you ?" at last gasped the old man. "Kit down, Mr. Lippe," said Cover dale. "I am atteuding to the cube." Then, stooping, be whispered in his LICAN dare do our duty as we understand 1L"--LINC0LN. ear: "I am trying to earn Susan." "She's yours," shouted the old man, regardless of the bystanders or the court, which having now an inkling of the matter, gave a loose rein to their jubilant feelings. How Susan felt, however, can be better imagined than described. She blushed like one of her mother's peonies, and hastily hid her face in her veil. When the merriment had subsided and old Mr. Lippe had secured his equanimity, the happy attorney pro ceeded, and finally made so clear a case for bis involuntarily client, as caused the judge to dismiss the suit The old man left the court in triumph, and with his hired hand, proceeded forthwith to the clerk's office, where a license was procured. The judge gave the court a short recess and united the happy pair in the bonds of matrimony. Since that event, Mr. Lippe has changed his views en educational mat ters. The othr day as Judge Cover dale was leaving home to take his seat in Congress, he said to his grandson : "Lippe Coverdale, get your lessons well, and who knows out what you'll go to Congress too. "Who ;knowsl" exclaimed the happy Susan. The Lottery of Life. The Boston correspondent of the Chicago Journal tells this story : Five years ago the wife of one of the most prominent men of State street was a poor seamstress. When she first came te the city (from Maine) she worked three weeks before receiving any pay, and sleeping with one of her shopmates, she borrowed money and bought bread, having been refused regular board without paying in advance. In order to keep body and soul together, relent less work employed her all day, and hours at night demanded that she should ply the needle. But the most cynical of men approve of woman's a good personal appearance, and this seamstress finally managed to dress well and pay the price of a seat in an up-town church. Her natural beauty, coupled with a spirit of womanly inde pendence drew towards her friends, and the result was that she married one of the wealthiest gentlemen at the South End, against the wishes of his f riends, however, who did not like the idea of his marrying outside of the circle of wealth. But Cupid cuts up come curious tricks, sometimes. The poor seamstress ia now sitting in the lap of affluence, and those who know her are inclined to envy her good luck as she comes down town in a carriage to do her shopping. But this sudden change in her world y condition has not made her a bit "stuck up." bhe not only drops a tear of sympathy over the heart-sick condition of the struggling shop-girl, but italicizes that sympathy oy donations oi much cash. A New Orleans paper tells the fol lowing story : One of our coast plan ters, who has a number of Chinese la borers in his employ, seeing a diposi tion on the part of some of the ne groes to annoy the Orientals, and ap prehending a resort by the latter to the use of the sharp knives which they alway wear, cautioned them not to take laW into their hands, but in case they were troubled by any negro to bring the offender before him and he would see that justice was done. Ac cordingly one day the planter, while sitting on his gallery, abserved a pro cession of the Chinamen coming from the quarter, bearing at their head a package. The marched with great de liberation and dignity up to the man son and laid their burden on the gal lery at the feet of planter. It proved to be a negro, securely bound as only Chinamen know how to tie a parcel. The negro was scared out of his senses, though eutirely unhurt Laying him quietly down on the gallery, the lead er of the Chinese, pointing to the mass, said te the planter; "Kiggah! too much I too much niggah 1" aud then the whole party trotted back to their work. It was an hour's hard work to untie the frightened negro, who on his release, very cheerfully acted upon the suggestion of the planter to "make himself scarce." "Clara" writes from Brooklyn to say that she has no sympathy- with those "sham modest" girls who com plain because young men gaze at tbem in the street Clara says she is a pret ty girl, and is perfectly willing that poor young men wno admire beauty, and cannot afford to get a specimen for themselves should look at her square in the face, provided they do it iu a delicate manner. Clara adds that she has beautiful feet and wears short dresses, and that her object in wearing such dresses is the same as that ot all the other pretty footed girls in the world. Hobbs, the old rascal, says an American girl loves with her eyes, an English girl with her arms, a French girl with her' lips, and Italian and Spanish with all . three. .

Going Home with Sally. The reader will laugh over this un less human nature has greatly changed since our boyhood : One bright moonlight winter's night, in the days of "long syne," when school-houses, cheap schoolmasters and blue beach reds were the only instru mentalities used for teaching the "young idea how to shoot," we chanced to attend a "spelling school I" in a certain rural district, the geographical location of wr ich it is not now neces sary to mention. Twas there, how ever, where our eyes first fell on a "fairy form" that immediately set our susceptible heart in a blaze. She was sixteen, or thereabout, with bright eyes, red cheeks and cherry lips, while the auburn ringlets clustered in a wealth of profusion around her beautiful head, and her person, to our ravished imagination, was mere per- tect in form and outline than the most faultless statue ever chiseled by the sculptor s art As we gazed, our feel ings, which never before had aspired girlward (we were scarcely eighteen,) were folly aroused, and we determined to go home with her that night or perish in the attempt As soon, there fore, as school was dismissed, and our "lady love" suitably bonneted and cloaked, we approached to offer our services as contemplated, and we then learned an important lessen, .viz, the difference between resolving and do ing. As we neared her to put our resolution into execution, we seemed to be strickea with a sudden blind ness ; then red, green and yellow lights flashed upon our vision, aud ap peared and disappeared like watches in a phantasmayeria. Our knees sruete together like Bclshazzar's and our heart thumped with apparently as much force as if it were driving tenpeny nans into our ribs! We, in the meantime, having reached Sally's side, manage to mumble over some thing which is, perhaps, known to the Recording Angel, but, surely, is not to us at the same time poking out our elbow as nearly at rig'it angles with our body as our physical conformation would admit The night wind blew keenly, which served in seme sort to revive us, and as our senses returned, what were our emotions on finding the cherished ob ject of our primal love clinging to our arm with all the tenacity a drowning man is said to clutch a straw I Talk of elysian, or sliding down greased rainbows, or feedinc on German flutes. what are sich "pheTings" in compari son with those mighty ones that swell ed our bosom nigh unta bursting off our waistcoat buttons I Uur happi ness was simply ecstatic, and every young lady or gentleman who has ever felt the mighty throbbings of a newlyplbdged love will completely un dcrstand that common word. Well, we walked on pleasantly to ward Sally's home, conversing very cosily and sweetly as we passed along, until so courageous did we become that we actully proposed "to go - and sit awhile," to which our dulcina very graciously assented. Alas for us I how soon were we to be reminded that the "course of true love never did run smooth." Sally had a brother of some ten summers, who accompanied us along the way, and who was in wonderful high spirits at the idea of his sister's having a beau, and he would circle around us, every now and then gig gling in the height of his glee, and examining us as closaly as if bally and ourself were the world renowned Siamese twins, and he was taking his first look. Bill, by-tbe-way, was a stubbed, chuckle-headed boy, whose habiliments would have made the for tune of an ordinary dealer in mop rags. 1 length we arrived at the bars, and while wo were letting thsm down Bill shot past us, and tore for the house, as if pursu id by a thousand bulls of Bashan. He flung open the door with n bang, and shouted at the top of his voice : "JM other! methor! Jim Clark is comiu' hum with fill I" "Is he T" scream id the woman' in reply. "Wal, I declare !" I didn't think the sapheod knewi nough 1" Header, we didn t go in. He took her fan jy when he came; he took her hand, he took a kiss; he took no notice of the shame that glowed her happy cheek at this. He took to coming r.uernoous; he took an oath he'd ne er deceive ; he took her father a silver poou,and after that he took his leave. The fears that (he heathen Chinese would overrun the country are pre mature. In Calif jrnia, out of a popu lation of 5G0.22J, only 49,311 are Chinese, while of ether foreigners thtre are nearly 100.0U0. In San t rancisce the Chinese number IZ.VZZ.

A laughable incident is related by the Chicago Evening Journal in con nection with the Baptist Convention just held in that city. The reception Uoinmittee had been driven to their wit's end to devise means of lodging ' the ministers in attendance, and after considerable tribulation found quar ters lor them all, some htleen hundred in number. About fifty were quarter ed on the floor of the Chapel attached to the University on Uottage Urove Avenue, and succeeded in sleeping very comfortable during five nights. On the sixth, however, one of the reverend gentlemen happened to wake up at an early hour and groped about for his clothis, but they wero gone nothing that usually arrayed the clerical person could be found. He sat up in bed and scratched his head in confusion, not fully comprehending the situation at first. Looking around, ho discovered that Brother B.'s clothes were also absent, tbat Brother T.'s big boots were not in their usual place; and, in fact, a thorough examination showed that not an article of apparel belonging to the half hundred ministers was in the room. Thoroughly frightened, the unfortunate Baptist yelled "Robbers t Burglars!" at the top of his voice, and soon his companions were made aware of the situation. The ensuing scene can be better imagined than de scribed. Considerable valuable prop erty was included with the missing garments, such as money, watches, railroad tickets, &c, and " the situa tion, to the unlucky victims, was gravo in the extreme. The unclothed fifty rushed hither and thither in the ex citement of the moment, vainly seek ing something they could not find. One could not but have pitied them, and yet their embarrassment was ludi creus in the extreme. They looked, says the Journal, like a lot of ghosts holding a grand carnival in the early dawn. Finally the news spread, and soon professors, students and porters wero busy devising means for dressing up the unfortunates, but before they had solved the difficulty presented, a pile of clerically cut garments was found in an out of the way corner, a pair of boots in another place, and the thorough search which was then in stituted showed that some mischievous college boys had played a trick upon them, and hidden their garments in various nooks and corners about tho building. The ministers were finally clothed, and will not soon forget tho scare they received. The Lockport Union describes with much feeling "a court scene of quiet demeanor." It says a boy had been arrested for the offence of picking up some pieces of jewelry that came by accident in his way, and when chased, running off with them. The venera ble Judge Marvin called tho boy to him, and in answer to the several questions put to the young one, ho answered that he was eleven years old. He trembled considerably as he ap proached, to him, the awful presence of the white-haired judge; but hn found that the wonted seat of cold and solemn judgment was a mercy seat, and the judge's eye a father's counsel ; and as the judge told him never mor to keep anything he found, always to be a good boy, and asked him if ho would always do so, the little fellow answered firmly, "Yes sir;" and a the boy turned and went away from the premises of his fatherly adviser, we thought that to a boy of that age, ' a "Go home and be a good boy," was infinitely safer than prison bars ; and tbat perhaps the sound of those wordd would not die away for many yearti, but stay with the young prisoner and make a man of him. The Detroit Free.
