'A bouquet, Miss, and oh so beauti ful said the girl, tripping back to the parlor. •How rare—what perfume Katie, don't you wish you could have such things sent you! There place it care fully in the vase—to-night I will wear some of them in my hair. That will do I will ring for you when Lwant you.' 'Such great loving blue eyes, and such a noble forehead,' mused little Ka tie as, she flew about the kitchen, intent upon her morning work. 'Such soft eyes, and such a serious handsome face —oh how very dearly Miss Julia must love him. If I only—but what non sense,' and she burst into a light clear laugh. 'Little Katies that live in kitch ens mustn't expect lawyers or rich men for husbands.' Katie stood that evening behind Miss Julia's chair, her little red hands half buried in the rich dark curls that she only had the requisite taste to adjust. The daintiest implements of the toilet lay scattered in profusion upon the mar ble table, and the mirror, framed ex quisitely in bronze and gilt, reflected the beautiful face of the heiress, in all its various modes of expression. *1 declare, Katie,' she suddenly ex* claimed, 'you are almost handsome.— I have a mind somo times to dress you up and see what kind of a lady you would make. How old are you.' 'Fifteen,' answered the child voice, while a deep blush mantled her cheeks. 'Fifteen,' mused the heiress 'a pro mtse of something more in the face— figure slight ana graceful—oh! the hands are decidedly too large and coarse! See who that is, quick Kauw, ile can't have come vet!' 'A note, Miss Julia.' The beauty read it eagerly then threw it with an angry toss upon the table.— 'Provoking!' she muttered 'Frank has been taken ill with a violent headache. Just now, of all times My dress hur ried for nothing,'—a satin robe, richly embroidered laid in recess,—'and this is the first ball of the season.' 'There, Katie, put the ear drops down, and just undo my hair. Is it not ri diculous, mother, just for a slight head ache to disappoint me so she exclaim ed, her cheeks reddened with two in tense spots 'I am downright an gry. If ho had only proposed* 1 de clare I'd go.' 'But if no is sick, daughter 'Sick! iiORsense~r-]ie is a schemer, and 1 dobelieva he is trying me in some manner. Any othor Frank should rue it but I have too miiah respect for his fortune to affront him now. Well I sup pose I must stay at home—but the idea is so very ridiculous disappointing me either for jealousy or some other notion, lam angry with him.' Katie uubanded and uncurled with trembling fingers. It was a lesson iu life, this arrogant bending to circum stances, It was new lesson in life this fiish- llcGREGOR, IOWA, WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 10, 1858.

Katie was an orphan. Sho had wept bitter tears above the dying forms of both father and mother nay she had held both dying head4 upon her bosom, and closed their eyes with her own hands. She was a girl of rare natural talents as yet undeveloped. Her brain was that of a woman her manners partook of the innocent simplicity of childhood. She had been nutured in poverty, yet by sensible parents, who had taught her the meaning of the word duty.— Sweetly unassuming, humble, yet with a natural pride that would submit to no thing dishonorable. Katie was almost a companion while she WM a servant. Had her lot fallen where she could have been rightly appreciated, she would have been taken to the heart as a daugh ter by the right of nobility or character and gentleness of nature. 'So she will not come and I10 calls for lier so often, oh, it is cruel and the speaker moved hastily through the room, whose splendor was darkened by a twilight sombreness. 'Dear lady, will YOU let me stay with him You—childf I know I am youug, but I am not afraid, and if he does not see, he may think—' It is her, so he may—so he might he is delirious} much of the time the room is dark, too but my good child remember it is a contagious fever, very little hope.' she cried' clasping her hands in anguish. 'I am myself an in valid we cannot get a nurse for at least a week—and to take you, so young and healthful, to tie you down to a sick room—' 'Oh, siy nothing please madam,' ex claimed Katie, 'do let me stay. I know 1 am on!y a child, but I have seen sor rowing anl 6i ff 'ring before now—my father my mo her—b »th died in my arms she faltered, and overcome by some sudden recollections, 6he sank weeping upon her seat. The lady arose, aud with trembling fingers herself untied the neat bnnet, ana smoothing back the fair hair, s:tid •bless you my child, you may stay, and if my love will repay your devotion, you are always recompensed.' •Where did you say Kntie had gone, mother,' said Julia, languidly lifting up her hand from the lounge. 'Over to your neighbor's to inquire after Frank.' 'Oh, mother, you will not let her come near the house again,' exclaimed the beauty springing with energy from her seat 'that dread fever Papa says there are six lying dead with it down town.' 'I told her if she went she must stay but she seemed possessed to go, and even hinted at taking care of him you know they cannot get a nurse.' 'Can't they poor fellow. I pity Frank, he thought so much of me isn't it well we are not engaged, mother—it would have been so awkward in case of his death He has sent for me, you Eay. He certainly, it' he loves me, does not wish to expose me so frightfully per haps it is only in his delirium he calU forme. Ihopehewiil get well, poor fellow I am sure I should miss him if he were to die. But it is so strange about Katie What in the world did she want to go there for ?'and sinking back gracefully upon the soft cushions, she placed one delicate hand benea'h her temple, and as unconcernedly as if there were no sorrow in the world, con tinued the thrilling novel upon whose pages were marks of tears shed over imaginarv w .e. I*ar different with Kaiie. Oh, how tireless she was—a ministering spirit to that sick room. Her hands, 'decid edly too large and coarse,' though Miss Julia had compassionately termed them, moved softly over the feverish fore head of the sick man. Ever at his side was she, with no thought in her loving heart, but how she might ease his suf fering. And when the faint light of his room shone upon his closed eyelids, over that pale high brow and wasted form, she would ltneel at the bedside and implore heaven that hs might be saved. Hour by hour when the fever was high, she beat over him delighted as a child when he called her Julia. No romantic affection, no jealousy disturb ed her genuine heart she was doing a good deed for the pure love and good ness—nor once did this humble, beauti ful girl think of herself as as equal of either Julia or this lawyer. Day after day, though the strength Se ew less, did she continue devoutly by sick couch, alternately with the feeble mother in discharging her ardu ous duties. The crisis camc—passes. 'He is saved,' said the doctor, 'but only by the most unremitting carc, under God,' he continued, casting a look of admiration at poor Katie, who overcome both with watohiny and joy, weeping like an infant fell into the arms 01 the grateful mother. 'How delicious this tastes,' murmur ed Frank in a very feeble tone 'but mother,' he continued, pushing slightly away the plate and orange, 'I may sure ly see Julia now.' •Sho ig not here, my son,' said the lady, softly. •But somebody is here,' and with a nervous movement he parted the cur tains, before Katie could escape. 'Why, Katie, as I live Come here. pale, little Katie, your roses are all gone hava you been sick, too Sit Sown here and tell me—tell me all about Julia is sho well How kind she was to nurse me during my sickness.' Katie's cheeks wert as crimson now as they were white before. Her lips quivered too, and sho cast a timid look towards his motlief. tears were gathering, and they did not 'eecapethe young man's observation. 'For heaven's sake tell claimed, fever 'Neither sick, nor has she been,' said his mother gravely. 'It is best to tell you at once, that while you were ill she sometimes formally enquired for you— attended two balls, and never came near the house.' 'Mother, you would not d« cive me surely I saw her here—surely she was here by my side—her hand in mine.' 'No, Frank, I repeat it she has not called—scarcely sent hero since your first attack. Katie has been your good angel for five long weeks.' He glanced once at the sweet girl, his eves tilled with tears, but his heart was grieved. He drew the curtain si lently together, and turned his face to ward the wall. After that day lie said little about Ju lia. He would lay watching Katie as she sat by his mother and very, very often when ho -looked, the grieved ex pression was on her lip. New Year's morning came, clear, beautiful and cold. But within the chamber of luxury only bright sunlight streamed, and the frost changed from frost into little brooks, and wandered about the window panes in silver cir cles. Frr-nk, pale and spiritual-looking, sat by the window. Now and then touch ing the white petal of a tea rose, or sat glancing over the columns of the morn ing paper, he seemed rather restless, and wandered frequently towards the door. Presently in came Katie, and as she drew near to wish him a happy new year, a clear light came to the young man's eyes. 'I thank you little Katie,, he said, taking her hand and drawing her to his side, 'but my child, have you no new year's presents for me V Katie started, and embarrassed, look ed down She, poor girl, why should he expect a new yera's present from her, and she so poor, without parents— without a home. •Dear, sir,' she murmured, after a pause, I wish I had but lean only give you my best wishes. •Katie, if I dared ask you—I know you have that which, if you give me, would make me the happi«st of men— but I dare not.' 'O, say it, sir if I have any poor gift. Suddenly she started—paused. A new revelation flashed upon her soul —his look, his manner, did he mean that 'Katie,'he said again, low and tre mulously, drawing her unresisting form yet closer to his side, 'is your heart free, my little Katie Can you give me so precious a thing for a new year's pre sent You have cared for me, Katie, when all but my mother forsook me. In this fevered room, with death threaten ing, you passed the weary hours you prayed forme, forsook rest for me. Not that I think you did it for any selfish purpose, dear child,' he continued dash ing away the tears. 'I know you would have done alike to a poor man's hovel. God bless you, noble Katie.' 'My child, my daughter,' murmured Mrs. N., straining the weeping girl to her breast 'you have a mother's bless ing. Dear Frank, she is worthy of you.' •And now, my child, when you hav* learned all these things,' Frank fondly said the same evening, 'you shall be my own wedded wife but, Katie, before we say good night, assure me that priceless gift is mine. Not many have received so sweet a new years's present, I fancy." child—you are looking pale, Katie,' he and smile if you have pretty arms and said, tenderly taking her hand, 'quite limiHa the™ r*nn Ha n.i inn In Of all who heard the news, none were so surprised, so indignant as Ju lia, the proud and cold-hearted, but am bitious girl, when it was told to hei that little Katie had given to Frank N.— the rich and courted, whose fortune she had once loved—a very precious Now Year's Gift. Tne WISE USES OF TROUBLE.—Tronfcle becomes a marvellous mortifier of pride, an effectual restrainer of self-will. The temper is mellowed and the feelings re fined. It needs repeated strokes of the hammer to break the rock to pieces and so it sometimes requires repeated stroke* of anguish to break our hearts to pieces, and make us humbler and wiser men. And as the longer you keep a canary bird in a cage, the sweeter it will sing, so the more severe the discipline of the good man's experience, the sweeter the song of his spiritual life. The gold that is refined in the hottest furnace comes out the brightest, and the charactcr moulded by intense heat will exhibit the most wondrous excellence. God's children are like stars, they shine brightest in the darkest night' like torches, that are the better for beat ing like grapes, that come not to the proof till they come to the press like trees, that drive down their roots farth er, and grasp the earth tighter, by rea son of tne stoim like vines, that look the better for bleeding the gold that looks the better for scouring ADVICE TO In her bright eyes one will be sensible of your desire to please if you would obtain power, be condescending but, above all (mark if you are a«ked to be married, sav yes, for you time. 1110,' he ex- •is Julia sick did sho take the Tike glow worms that 6hine best in the dark the iuniper, that smells sweetest in the fire like pomander, which becomes more fragrant for chafing like the palm tree, which proves the better for preserving like the camomile, which spreads the more you tread on it.

Oh, merciful Jehosophat nnd big on ions, what a time I've had with that wid der. We chartered an omnibus for two, on Christmas, and started. Widder, said I, where shall we go to She blush ed, and said sho didn't like to say. I told her sho must say. "Well, Jeliuel, if you insist upon it, and I am to have my choice, Ihad rath er go to church," "What for, widder said I. "Oh, Jehuel, how can you ask mo ?, "Cause I want to know,' said I. "Well—(blushing redder than beef) —it is such cold weather now, and the nights are so awful cold, and oh, Jenuel, I can't say it!' "Oh, pshaw, widder, spit it out, what do you mean The widder rilod. She biled right over like a quart of milk on the fire, and burst out with— "If you can't understand me, you're a heartless brute, so you are.' '•Hold your horses!' said I. What's all this about I I'm not a brute, nor ne ver was, and if a man called me that I'd boot him, sure,' And then I biled right over, and un buttoned my coat oollar to keep me from bustin'off my buttons. The widder saw I was a going to explode, or else collapse my windpipe, ana she flung her arms round my neck, put her lips to mine, and cooled right down. "Jehuel, dear said she, in an insin ivatin' way, nnd a voioe as sweet as a hand organ, "Jehuel, honey, I wanted to go to oburch to get mar—no I can't say it all, you finish the word, Jehuel, sweet.' What word, marm "Oh, you stupid Jehuel, dear. I mean the word married, Jehuel, love.' "Married widder!' said I, did you mean that V "Indeed I did, Jehuel, love "Look here marm, my name isn't Jehuel Love, nor Jehuel Dear, nor Je huel Sweet, I'd have you to know. And I won't get married to no-body but one, and you are not the the. Oh, pewter pennies, but didn't she rave She made one dash at me, I dodg ed, and she went but up against the up- Eer end of the omnibus. Crack went er comb, and smash went that bran new bonnet that I didn't buy for her, and down she went with her face in the straw. But in a moment she rose again, and made one more dash at me. I drop ped—she went over me and butted the door of the omnibus. The strap broke and out she went—her gaiter boots high' er than her head as she struck the pave ment. "Drive on!' I veiled to the driver. "Woman overboard—woman over board yelled a passing sailor. Stop that White Coat—breach of promise—reward—Herald—publish shrieked the widder, in tones of mortal agony, while tears of blood streamed from her beautiful pug-nose. "Drive on—drive on I shouted. "Where to asked the driver. "To the Devil-to Harlem-Macomb's Dam-Degroots-any where so that we es cape matrimony and the widder.' He started, so did tho widder, and then we had it up the avenue, the buss having the start of about a hundred yards. Foot by foot the widder gained. Thinks I Jehuel, you are a goner. I thought it was best to lighten ship. So first 1 hove overboard the straw. Still she gained on me. Then overboard went the cushions. But still she gain ed. "More steam, driver, for mercy's sake!' I yelled. "We are going faster than the law al lows now,' ho answered. "Thirteen miles an hour.' Jehosophat, how the widder did run she hove off her bonnet and came up hand over hand. A thought struck me, so I off with my white coat and flung it right down in her path. She sprang on it like a she-paniher, and tore it to pieces oh, how they flew. I wept to see it go, but life is sweeter than a coat, and my tailor is making me a new one here we gained full two hundred yards, but on she came again once more I could see the gieefe in her eyes merci ful Moses, how I felt. "Driver^ said I, 'kill them horses or get another mile out of them. "Will you pay for'em he said. "Yes' yes, yes, said I "only save me from the widder.' By cracky, we did slide the widder no longer gained, but she held her own beautifully. Thus we had it—out past the Red House—through—Harlem— where Capt. Graham, with three mount ed policemen in vain attempted to catch us, he probably supposing that we were running away with some Bauk fund. My only hope was in reaching Degroot's ahead of her for I knew they would hide me. We are on the bridge, and, oh, Moses, the draw was up, and a sloop going through. "Driver,' said I, 'jump that bridge and I'll make your fortune for life, sure as you're born.' "I'll do it or di«!' be cried. And he did it. The widder jumped after us, fell into the Harlem RiVer, and hasn't been heard of since.

Tho Belleville (Illinois) Democrat has an account of an ela$enfeitt in that oity: One O. B. nardy eloped with Mr* Sarah Burnett, some ti^io in October last, or about that time, for parts un known, since which time neither of them has been hoard from. Hardy left n wife, and we believe no children, resid ing in this city, and Mrs. Burnett left a husband and all her children, three boys and a girl. An illicit intercourse, the husband now thinks, had been carried on between Hardy and his wife some months before their elopment, though this he had not thought until after the elopment. They were neighbors atid friends and all belonged to the sarin* church. Hardy succeeded in persuad ing Burnett to sell his lot and cabin, all the property he possessed, and though Burnett's wife obtained nearly one-half the proceeds of tho sale, under cover of helping Burnett to remove with Hardy to Texas. So unsuspecting were all the parties, that Hardy and Mrs. Burnett actually went off under color of g*ing down to St. Louis to engage passage for both families to Texas. After this elope ment, Burnett, whose habits were pre* vlously intemperate, took to incessant insobriety and in a short time drank himself to death. Last Sabbath the poor fellow's mortal remains were inter red—leaving four orphan children, two of whom are perfectly dependent, The editor, with othor charitable friends, have taken these orphans, and have found good homes for all of them with the exception of one. Hardy and Mrs. Burnett were befit church members, and up to the hour of their elopement, we believe the ohuroh had full confidence in both of them.-— Hardy was one of the prominent mem bers of the Baptist church of this city, and was rather obtrusive in chureh matters. He is a painter by trade, is about 50 years of age, bis locks are frosted with a^e. We should not HIM have noticed him, but for his profession of religion. He has quite a desire at times to preach, and may be induced to try his fortune in that way, the bettev-4* conceal his baseness. f' The Lander Quadrilles. A Washington letter writer in desciftm 1 the "beautiful jam" at Senator Douglas' toiree on the 19th Jan., thus takes off the dancing in vogue atttat Capitol city: "The entertainment consisted of dancing, eating, talking and laughing, each one doing well their part. The dancing in Washington is peculiar. Aa in New York the Lancier Quadrilles are all the go. It is an English dance, and invented by amateurs at the siege of Sebastopol and dedicated to the French. There is considerable bowing in it, re quiring a peculiar kind of music, other wise it resembles the well known CaJe donian Quadrille. But the fancy dan ces here are horrible. There is neither grace nor gentility in them. The poetry of motion is lost in the ferocity of aotion. A couple grapple with each other as if wrestling, and turn and trip, and trip and turn, like amateur gladiators,— This is all done in a small ring, formed circular like a dog fight. The lady, held in close contact by the gentleman, drops her chin on the gentleman's bosom and looks up, becausc she has nowhere else to look. The gentleman bends over her in the shape of a half moon, and of course looks down, for he has nowhere else to look. Tho right arm of tie gent and the left of the lady are used as grapnels, while the other two arms, locked at the fingers, extend at length, either at right angles or par allel with their bodies, often changing positions, and worked Up and down on the principle of a pump handle. Thuf accoutered they slide into the ring, whirl and twirl a few times, and then slide ottt, when another couple take their place.** The spectators, who are staid old gen tlemen and their wives, portly, middle aged ladies, unmated gentlemen and un learned fancy dancers of all classes, form a ring around these exhibitors from five to fifty deep. They stand and stare until the music stops, when the crowd disperses. We saw the French ladies, composing in part the suite of Count Sartiges, watching with much in terest these gyrators, and chattering French incessantly, but did not dance. SOME NOISE.—A neighbor of the London llluttrated /Tewt thinks the Hoe^s Fast" a nuisance. He has sued the proprietors, and the evidence says that the court which separated his pre mises from the defendants was only four feet three inches wide, and in the month of March last the defendants set up an American printing machine, worked by steam, which created the disturbance now complained of. The printing begun every Thursday night, and was contin ued all Fridav night, and sometimes on Saturdav, and such was the noise from the maohinery that it was scarcely pos sible to hear oneself speak in the plain tiff's parlor. The scrsaming, whistling and thumping of the boiler and fly wlteels rendered the plaintiff's house un inhabitable, and the noise was compar* ed to that of an express train passing by, but never getting away. The result waa that tho plaintiffs wife was unable to live in the bouse, his customers forsook the parlor, and the port wine and beer in die cellar was rendered thick by the vibrati on. The vibration was so great that it would gradually cause the glasses to tumble off the snelvee in the bar or,, if one were left on the oask in the oeltar. it would after a time, tumble off and get broken. ii i ifJi A SCAMP.—The New Lisbon Hepmt* I icon says: "A notorious villain, calling himself P»g«» came to Portage City a few weeka since-, and hired a livery stable carriage aud horse to make a t?ip into the coun try.

Alter spending a couple of days with he, he obtained the loan of his brother-in-law's overcoat, went some ten miles distant, and married an other Miss of fourteen then stole his father-in-law's pocket book, and broth er-in-law's boots, and absconded.
