Though the Earlie's son U he
Se should wed him with some oflier,
Who hath acres broad in fee
Br hi brow the hauteur wearcth,
That becomes him, of his line,
Ajnd his eye liko falcon glareth—
'Neath Its proud light I should pine.
I cannot love 1dm, mother.
Tt cannot love him, mother,
Though his voice is soft and clear,
't am dreaming of another
v.
While its mu-ic filli my ear

And my eyes I dare not raise,
#or the light within them spurning
All the truth of what he says.
1 cannot lovo him, mother.
cannot lore biin, mother.
Though his titled home Is fair,
®liou','h the peasant is my brother,
I would not be lady there I
ftfrr, were wreathed amrng my trasse*
All the jewels of his race,
®»ey would light, for hl caresses,
But a poor, pale, mournful face.
I cannot lore him, mother.
I cannot love him, mother,
Though he loves mo well, I trow I
And he's gone, I know not whither,
Who hath won my girlish row,
Who, though stately hall or castlo
He hath none in all the land
Off this h'«rt hath made his vasenl,
'Though the Earlie wins my hnnd.
I cannot love hi in, mother.
I cannot lore him, mother,
Though ho doubts not, In his pride,
that a silken garb would s mother
All the grief my heart would hide
Tet beMdc him, in my slumber,
If one face should haunt my dream

'Twould be his I dare not namo.
I cannot lore him, mother.
I cannot love him, mother,
Though my Jamie—he is poor,
I would riitlier roam the heather
Where hi« home is—on the moor I
Or, where light the young fawn boumteth

During a session of a Circuit Couri

"EARLY MARRIAGES.—She stood
side the alter when she was but sixteen.
She was in love her destiny rested on a
creature as delicate, and who had known
as little of the world as herself. She
looked lovely as she pronounced the
vow. Think of a vow from auburn
hair, blue eyes, and pouting lips, only
sixteen years old.
"She stood by the wash-tub when
lier twenty-fifth birthday arrived. The
hair, the lips, the eyes wero not calcu
lated to excite the heart. Five cross
young ones were about the house crying
—some breaking tilings, and one urging
the necessity of an immediate supply ol
the lacteal secretion. She stopped in
despair and sat down, and tears trickled
down her once plump and ruddy cheek.
Alas! Nancy, early marriages are not
the dodge. Better enjoy ytfuth at home,
and hold lovers at a proper distance un
til you have muscle, limb and heart
enough to face a frowning^ world and
family. If a chap really cares for you,
he can wait for two or three years, make
presents, take you to concerts and so on,
until the time comes, Early marriages
and early cabbages are tendttr produc

A STRANGE STORY.—The Newport,
(Florida) Timet, of the 14th inst., has
the following singular story:
A friend informs us of the following
occurrence, which is reported to have
taken place recently at Atlapulgus, Ua.
A gentleman who had received a consi
derable sum of money, was compelled
to go from home, leaving his wife alone
in tho house—situated some distance
from any other dwelling. Towards even
ing two negroes eutered the house, and
demanded of the lady the money or they
would take her life. Being a woman of
great coolness, she saw at once it would
be useless for to attempt to evade the
demand, so she produced the money
and gave it to them. The mgroesthen
remarked, that as supper was nearly
ready, they would stay and eat with
her. She told them to be seated, until
she got it ready. The woman had a
vial of strychnine in her cup-board.—
Supper being ready, the woman, in
sweetening their coflee, managed to put
a dose of the poison in each of the ne
groes' cups. They drank, and in a few
moments were dead. The neighbors
were called in, and the negroes discover
ed to be white men in disguise—near
neighbors and friends of her husband,
who had kuowu of hi*
money and of his absence.
The and
Story of the Tin Peddler
"Sleepy David."
The following story, extracted from
tTlfi work, A Yankee among the Xullifi
ers, purports to be told to another by a
South Carolinian:
That Yankees, as I said before, are
apt to be too 'cute for us in everything
but horse-flesh, and even sometimes in
that. It was this day three years ago,
and on this very spot, that I entered my
horse "Southern" for a purse of two
thousand dollars. He had won a little
sum the year before with all ease. In
short, he was the best horse at that time
in South Carolina. There were, to be
sure, two other horses, and very lino
ones too, entered against him, but they
were no touch to "Southern," and I
as sure of winning as I am sitting here
this moment—when wl o should come
along but a Yankee, with a tin cart! He
had the shabbiest, worst looking horse
I ever put my eyes on. He was a lean,
slab-sided, crooked-legged, rough-hair
ed "critter" as ever went on four legs.
He stood all the time as if he was asleep
—in fact, his owner called him "Sleepy
David." In short, sir, ho was such "a
horse as would not have brought twenty
dollars.
It was near the hour of stnrting, when
the peddler, whose exterior correspond
ed marvelously with that of his horse,
and who said his name was Zadoek
Barber, to the astonishment of all, inti
mate! a wish to enter h's horse with the
rest.
"Yourhorse!" txclaimed I—"what,
that sleepy looking devil there You'd
bc ter enter him for the turkey-buz
zards."
"Not as you knows on, Mister," re
sumed Yankee, with some show of
spirit. "To be sure the critter looks
rather sleepy as he stands, and on that
account I call him "Sleepy David but
he's jolfi'd smart horse for all that.—
He's like a singed cat, a darned sight
better nor he looks. I should like tar
n-ition well to try him agaiust some of
yt. ur South Carolina horses. To be sure
don't come all the way from home on
that purpose, but r.s I was coming out
this way on a load of tin ami other no
tions, 1 thought I might time it so to
kill two birds with one stone, lor, thinks
I to my self, if I can win the purse and
peddle oil' my notions, a. the same lime,
shrill make a plaguy good .-pee. But
I had to hurry on like tho nation to get
ere in time and that's one rearou why
my hoss looks &o shabby and out of fix
this morning. But for all that he'll per
toim a day's work, 1 tell you."
Supposing he had no idea of running
his horse, and that all he said v a merely
gratify his propensity for talking, I
lade 1 im begone, and not trouble mo
with his Yankee palaver.
"Why, mister," said he, "this is a
free country, and a man has a right to
ilk or let it aloi e as he can afford.
Now, I've taken agreatdealoipainstoget
here this morning, in order to run 'Slee
py David' ao in some of your Southern
losses. I ain't joking, sir I'm in air
nest. 1 understand there is a purse of
wo thousand 11 irs, and I should like
tmazing to pick it up."
"You talk of picking up two thous
and dollars with that bit of carrion of
yours! Away with you, and don't
.rouble us any further."
"Well, if can't run, I suppose I can't
but it's dan e 1 hard anyhow for a man
.o take so lr.u.'h paius as I have to come
up to the races, and then can't run arter
ail."
"It's too late now by the rules of
the course the horse should have been
entered yesterday however, if you'U
plank the entrance uiouey, perhaps yott
may get in yet."
I said this by way of getting rid of
the fellow, having no idea that he could
command a fourth part of the sum re
quired.
"How much might the entrance
money be?" drawing out a purse con
aining a few shillings in silver and a
few pence in copper. "If taiu't more
nor a quarter or a dollar or so, I'll plank
it on the nail."
"It is two hundred dollars."
Two hundred exclaimed the
Yan-
what a pnee
kee. "By gauley,
Why they axed me only twenty-five
cents to see the elephant and the hull
caravan in New York Two huudred
dollars Why you must be joking now
—bless me my hull load of tinware,
hoss, wagon and all wouldn't fetch that.
But, mister, don't you think I could get
in for ten dollars?"
"Nothing short of two hundred, and
that must be paid in live minutes."
We now thought we had faiilv got rid
of the fellow but he returned" to the
charge and asked if fifty dollars wouldn't
do, then seventy, then a hundred, aud
finding he could not make a bargain for
less than tho regular sum, he engaged
to give it provided he could find any one
to loan him the money, fr which he
would pawn his wagon lo iu of notions,
and "Sleopy David" to boot. He ask
ed one, and then another, to accommo
date him with the loan—declaring that
as soon as ever he took tho purse, the
money should JC turned. a::d he
but he would carry off tlie purse.
"That's what I meaa to do," said lie
"ain't come here for nothing, I can toll
Jrou. Wake up "Sleepy David" and
ook about you you must have your
eyes open to-day, its no time to be snooz
in' when there's money at stake."
The horse, as if he understood what
his master was saying, pricked up his
ears and actually began to show signs of
lifo.
The signal was given to start. Away
sprang "Southem" with the speed of
lightning, and leaving "Sleepy David"
far in the rear and tho peddler verging
from one side to the other, as if he was
just ready to fall off.
But they improved as they proceeded
the peddler sat more jockey-like, and
the horse evidently gained upon the
others.
It was now thought the Yankee had
enough of the race, and would withdraw
before the heat. Contrary to all expec
tation, however, he persevered, and of
fered to" bet a thousand dollars on the
issue of the race.
"The fellow's a fool," said one.
"lie don't know which side of Ms
bread is buttered, or else he wouldn't
bot any money on so desperate a
staked'
"He is safe enough there," said a
third, "for he has no more to risk."
II
ere, however, all were mistaken
again, for the peddler hauled out a greasy
old pocket-book, and planked the thous
and dollars. It was covered of course.
But I confess I now began to be stag
gered, and to suspect the Yankee was,
after all, more rogue than fool, I had
no fears, however, for the purse.—
"Southern" was not a horse to be dis
tanced by such a mire ruble devil as
"Sleepy David,"
The second heat was now commenc
ed, and if I had before felt confident in
the entire superiority of noble "South
ern," that confidence was strengthened
as I again saw him coming in ahead of
the rest. I considered the purse as now
my own property. In immngination I
had grasped it and was about putting it
safely in my pocket, when, lo and be
hold the peddler's horse shot forward
as if the devil had kicked him, and,
stretching his neck like a crane, won the
heat by a head.
Evebody was astonished. "That
horse must be the devil himself," said
one.
"At least he has the devil to back
him," said another.
"I was sure l\e would play some Yan
kee trick before he got through," said a
third.
Such were the observations that pass
ed from mouth to mouth.
The Yankee, in the mean time, offer
ed to take another thousand dollar bet,
but nobody felt disposed to bet with him,
and it was well that they didn't, for at
the third heat "Sleepy David" not only
distanced every horse, but even came
in a full quarter of a mile ahead of
"Southern" i.imself.
"There, by gauley," said the Hankee,
as he dismounted, "I'll take that ere
little purse if you please, and the other
cool thousand, tew! 1 knowed well
enough that your Southern horses
couldn't hold a candle tew old "Sleepy
David."

From the Auguct.i Age, October 99.
A LOVER'S TRAGEDY.—The quiet lit
tle city of Hallowell was agitated, on
Monday ef last week, by a tragedy of
uncommon interest. Mr. RyantofFar
mington, had been paying his address
es to a young l.tdy who worked in the
factory at Hallowell. She had recent
ly declined receiving any further atten
tions from him, and had requested that
her letters should be returned to her.—
On Monday, Rvant visited the factory,
called tho young lady out, and proceed
ed with her to her boarding house,
where an interview took place. On
leaving the room, ltyaut requested her
to pass out a head of him, which she
did, and immediately heard the snap of
a percussion cap. Looking round she
observed a pistol in Ryant's hand, di
rected at her. She immediately rushed
towards him for the purpose of seizing
it, when he turned it towards himself
aud filed. He immediately fell dead,
having received two balls in his head.
Tho escape of tho young lady is a
remarkable one. Ryaut had provided
himself with a double barreled pistol,
and, as he supposed had loaded both
barrels with a ball but, iustead of that,
he put both balls into one barrel, and
the barrel he fired at the young lady was
the one that did not contain any ball.
ALL FOR A CENT.—The Hillsdale
(M'ch.) Standard, states that an unu
sual case of li.igation came off in that
village a few days ago, worthy of note.
A farmer of Camden passed the toll
gate near Reading, paid his toll, and
was handed a brass cent by the keeper
for change, which he indignantly re
fused to accept, and demanded a copper
cent to this request the keeper in like
manner refused to comply. From words
they went to blows, pulling of hair,
scratching, &until both came off se
cond best. The man who refused the
cent, returned home, swore out a war
rant, had the gate-keeper arrested for
assault and battery, tried, found guilty,
and fined ten dollars. After which the
yate-keeper swore out a warrant for the
Camden man for like offence, for which
he was tried, found guilty, and fined ten
dollars also.
Since then the gate-keeper has been
sued for the cent, which will make
another suit, and costs of five dolllars,
besitles two lawyers*
fees, making a sum
total of
