Clairetto lost licr father and mother when she was but thirteen years of aro. She was a good-natured girl, but had rather a flighty head, and alwaya looked at things upon the surface, and took vcry littlo pains to look at the sense which lay hiddcil beneath them. She accordingly allowed her uncle andgurdian to neglect her projicrty, paying; no attention to it ; and liked better to trvqucnt fairs, mar kets, the festivals of patron saints, and to enjoy Sunday amusements, rather than to hoc in her fields, snadc un her garden, and lead her sheep to the pastur airc. Clairettc was by no means indolent or inactive ; she would pasa an hour every morning dressing herself, and two more during the1 day siift'othing her. ribbons, iloiug up iter c:irli and putting away her skirls. Alter this came a walk here and a promenade there, so the poor child liaU nut a moment to spare. To make amends she had several nice compan ions how many one has at her nae ! The child sarins to make scores of friends, and all the more because at every step it lakes in the world it is sure to loso one. A dozen young girls had attended school and made their tirst communion with Clairettc. Aftcrthisimpurtaiitact, which brings us out of. our infancy, and which assigns to us our place in the great work shop here below, each was allotted her task in the family, targhclide did sew ing during the day and spun in the eve ning; Hietie looked alter the hoitso and carried out meals to the field hands; Lix andrinc took the sheep and the cows to pasture. ClairVtte alone, as idle as a little sav age she called this liberty Was proud of her independence, and pitied her poor companions who gave tliciit so much trouble in the world. " Of what use is It? Is Uiebe's Sunday dress any the hot ter for plodding along muddy paths strewn with briers ? lias Lixandriue a finer complexion forgetting tanned in a scorching summer sun tending her cow-.?' The time came, however, when, in pite of her pride in her half-vagabond lifo, Clairettc was less atrt'itious ol itnlcpcii encc, and felt disposed to come under the dominion of a husband. This very nat ural desire, but Mill a vague one at eigh teen, besides being subject to circum stances, became iifYjitfiiilus, like the sat isfaction of a point of honor, when Clair ettc returned from the wedding of Marg helide with the tailor Latano. Marghclide was the younger. By what inexplicable grace ot ht- Joseph, the pat ron of spouses, should she tako the lead of her associates? She was assuredly less pretty than Clairettc," and likewiso less aimable ; who would dispnto that? What charm had given her tho prefer ence in the eyes of the brisk young La tano ? Ah, here it is! Marghclide wore a splendid red petticoat as brilliant as a poppy and which seared awav the cattle. (but which produced a quite contrary ef fect on all the young men ; the color of tins lucky petticoat relieved so sharply on the green of the meadows and the gav of the brambles, as to bo very easily seen half a lc.ig-.io off. Latano, complete ly bewildered must have run for the pct ticoSt the samcas a lot of frogs after the baited hook on the end ot a fish-line. Woman is naturally disposed to re gard her toilet as a sort of talisman, and not alone the city dame, but the simplest young girl of tle fields. It sufiiccs to wear a petticoat to possess an instinct for corors anil calicoes. Clairettc had it in the highest degree ; she was sure that she had discovered Marghclide': secret; she ran oil to sell six ot her sheep, and bought the deepest scarlet petticoat she could liml in the market. From that day forth Clairettc never went to the spring, to church, to a ball, or to a fair, without wearing the attrac tive garment in which the lucky Marg- lielnle had captured the, tailor Iintane. In vain, however, did she glide through the crowd and thus display herself. The women found her tawdry, tho young girls looked envious, while the voung men politely invited her to dance; tut no mother ever dreamt of selectins' her as a wife for her sou, and no son ever utter ed a word abirtrt taking her for a house keeper. A year of fruitless cTTorls had passed. and not a whisper of a proitosa! of mar- jiv. ,i ii;u nau hick : coon tier menu Bii-bc followed that samttdcli'rhtfai road as Manrhclide and ostwtnsn! thn furmer l ueiiifiiot.' Clairetto became dejondcnt. She had lost fifteen months in distdavintr her red peticoat, and she could not imagine the rausctu tier lauure. Was Licbc, Cien, tho more charming? Nolwdy would idarc maintain that falsehood. H w.is sufficient to see them" stahgsidfe'tSr each other at a dance. Clairettc alwav had thirty partners more than her rival. Was she more entertaining? Biebo could not nut toircther two coiisbcutim i.lr. and when her beaux snokc to her. Im answered only with downcast yes. "1 Bare it, sshu iitaircitc. medita ting, and eager to know thb'amsc of her disgrace. " Bicbo wean a distaff at her side constantly, even with tho water jar 'on her head and whoa carrying-.the bas ket with the workmen s racais.' The dislaff, it must be admitted, had ab'out it a certain matrimonial virtue which criticed 3-oung men anxious to idSrry; the "awe as a mirror attracts looks. Clairettc was determined to havo one of these' magic utensils. If a plain willow distair proved so highly advan tageous to the hoiisc-kcejier Uiebc, what would not be the effect of a handsome distaff of hacl, exquisitely curved by the best wdrkman of the village, decked with the finest white wool instead of coarse flax, and entwined with red rib bons instead of pack-thread ? . Tho young girl tits herself out ; sho buys the choicest spinning ajiparatus in the country, cover it with wool as white as snow, addrns it with ribbons artisti cally arranged in bow's, tfild ncver.ahows herself outside her door, in tlic, street, or in tho village, without this elegant im plement of all good and indiistrous maid ens. One point only had been forgotten, and that was to' twirl the spindle. Tho motionless distaff at her belt always dis played the sanie flock of wool. IS'ow what happened ? Clairetto's ele gant instrument proved to bo less effica cious than the rudo willow stick of tho industrious Bie'bc: The. year passed away, Clairetto at every festivity, lomid dancers eager enough to clasp her waist and to press hcrjiaud, but never a beaux disposed to talk of marriage. She was now twenty, and she saw her cousin Francoiscj her friend Lixandriue " Lixandriue,' the most ungainly crea ture in the whole village, a girl tiiat limps ! " repoYtcd those clairvoyant peo ple who arc called backbiters. " Yes, in deed, Lixandriue, that red-beaded black faco with wry hips! What witch did she go too get a charm for that shitless Jean i'icrron? What Secret did bhe turn up in her grandmother's workbag? " Clair ettc patiently sought a solution of tlieso difficulties. Sho thought, finally, that she had found one in the presence of a little white lambkin which constantly folio we'd the' sliepardess footsteps. After making this important discovcr3' it may bo imagined whether Clairetto was prompt in procuring a lamb as close ly resembling as possible that of the dark complcxioncd Li&indrine ! From that day torth sho was never seen with out this pretty little creature bleating and skipping around her, and always coming to her to cat bread out of her hand. Did a suitor follow in the footsteps of tho lamb? No more th'aif he came at the signal df the red petticoat, or at that of the cross-ribboned distall. Day 1 flow ed day, month followed poor Clairettc looked 111 va.n. To regrets anil mortification succeeded despair. Did Aunt Migueline, wise in the ways of the world, overheard her moans and adiiiiui"tcrcd consolation. Where is the voting girl who bus' not some good old iairy near at hand to give her counsel it she will only take pains enough to Ifaten to it ? "You are weeping) Clairettc," said 1111t Migueline, addressing her. ""I am trying over my twenty-one year gone without, without stopping, " she rcspt'iidetl. " itiiout letchingyoif a hitsiiand, j-oti mean to say. " Une need not uc a witcn to guess that Migueline. " " Your red jtctticoat ami gay distaff are worn out in a nicies service; your lamb kin bleating ami frisking around 3-011 has proTct tfrgHally Useless." " Why "do you throw tho'se things up to me, Migueline ? " ' "I say what I think, Clairettc. Do you suppose that my eyes, half closed by age, tto not sec clearly into the toils and snares' set by you, and those like you onthcpathtomatrimo'rry? Kvery young girl is an imitating bird, ot the parrot or the magpie order, who, since the world began, is exclaiming, husband ! husband ! and it is not necessary to teach lrf ins tiling in this direction, my dear niece Clairettc." " Tis truo, Migueline. But, I thought might be as fortunate as my friend:?, and m imitating their mode of display mafc , "And yon arc obliged to confers that you have had all 3-our trouble for noth ing ! Poor children, always relying ujc 011 color instead of form, and never find- f inr rt tho true state of things. Yes, the habit of your companions ot appear ing in public associated with certain suit able and useful objeefs, has contributed not a little towanls getting them hus bands." But do you know the reason ? It is becatrse'the red ctticoat was woven and made up by tin; persevering young girl who wore it; such an example of her skill and activity in iisirg her needle fur nishing admirable proof tif her knowing what to do in the situation in which she is placed. The distaff Iil;cvi-o proved as profitable to ISiebo because sho was a fearless spinner, and did not rest satis- ified, as you dhf, with carrying the im plement around with her motion lets at her belt ; she kept the spindle below it and her lingers always busy, so that the flock of wool or" ran; bad t be renewed ttcn times a nay. 11 ine i.-.mu aid not prove unserviceable to Lixaiiilrtne, it was because it was tho Icatlcr of a fine drove of fifty which that careful little shcphcpJ ess led out daily to pasture, carl3 in the morning in summer, and during the af ternoon in winter, avoiding wet grass and fields, alwa)-agetting kick belore it rained, and ever keeping clear 01 cnang cs in the weather, ot so much harm to thoscdclicatclittletrcatarcs.

You have fields and meadows tbatare lying fallow; resume yojr rake and" hoe, stir up the ground, aad fall up tho weeds ; bo as in dustrious as roar companion, and yoc will not faav"leag to wait for ahasband." Clairettc listened to Annt Mignclinc's discourse vith all tho attention which advice deserves when one is disposed to follow it because it seems good: No long er quitting her little plot of ground, she dug. hoed and made nay so sticees.dullv tliat, at the end of the year, tho son of rich old Thomas came ami put to her the following question: " CInirclto", will j-ou be nry wife? " "Why should I refuse, .Jlonsieur Thomas, if snclysj'onr wish respond ed Clairetto, with downcast C3-CS and a modest feint which the least bashful of country girls can so wrjll assume. "Yon arc agreed, Clairettc?" "I am;" and they joined hands. Jonx Duoaxd. Cast m Bease satsglers. Very voung infants and small children arc used as instruments for smuggling. On one occasion an "immigrant family, man and wife, and two noarl-grown up daightars, presented themselves. Thc3- were very aii.ioio aim e.is in ineir man ners, and without ninch trouble to them, were pronounced "all right; "and while the proper proceeding were in progress for their dismissal one of tho officer. saw a handsome little bo- standing alone, and struck 1)3" his attractive appearance, and not knowing to wii?m no roiongon, 11c spoke to the child, a:id attempted to " skylark" with him. The officer was surprised to find tho boy could not bend his bod3;on examination it was found that tho clothing was quilted with val uable" articles of silk manufacture and sil ver spoons. Tho little fellow belonged to tho family the members of which had just been pronounced "all right." A gentlemanly loosing uai puuri- emu passenger, from his intelligent expres sion of face and agreeable manners, was treated with marked consideration. The officer. were so easily satisfied that he was honest that thc3 took no special no tice of a small "lap-cloth," much worn, which was hanging on his arm. A de tective, at the time "off dtit," noticed a carriage waiting tor soma person, and asked the driver for whom it was intend ed, and Jehu pointed to tho passenger who was amiroaehing with tho lap-cloth, as usual, on his arm. There was some thing apparently inconsistent in having a carriage for such a man. A suspicion being excited, the officer seized tho lap cloth. On a critical search it was found to bo lined or padded with Brussels lace, t'mt sold at public Haition for c'.cvent thousand dollars. Tho fool smuggler is illustrated Iry n man, said to be from the western part of the State of New York, who got a dia mond worth sixteen thousand dollars safely through without pa-ing the duties. The gem he sold for ils'full value, and . .1 .. ..1 1 i.; . SUDSOqUCnilJ- "oruggeu u ins siiuii- nass." The fact camo to the knowledgo of the government anil the proceeds of the sale were contiscateu. As smugglers, women are m'irc suc cessful than men. The complications of their dress favor the business. The modern "chignon" w. for a time a most exccllc'ift depository for smuggled goods. A woman is remembered who was so successful that she was constantly crossing the ocean for the purpose, and in a few 3-ears acquired a hamNome competency; It is a strange metamor phosis that these adventurers undergo when caught in their work. Some years l since a prey woman, remarkable for her full bust, broad hips, and plethoric person generally, presented herself for examinatio'i. She was very polite and affable, and came near escaping detec tion. But the female detective then em ployed at Castle Garden no fooncr put her eye on tho rotund figure of tho "object" under inspection than sho in vited tho partv to a private interview. It was incredible what a change was nnn nftVcted. Suffice it to saV that the apparently well-red and portly daiac of a lew momuiii-s uciuru, nui'i-" merablc dr3" goods, stepped into public gaso reduced to a wonderfully thin and rather skeletonized individual. As there I is no penalty for smuggling on the por fson except forfeiture, she went sorrow fully awav. Our laws are oven more merciful than this; tor all goods thus seized can b3 redeemed, though confis cated, by the payment of an honcslly mado appraisement.

Tho springs have been christened Villa la Front and will be provided with a post office and tel egraph station, as will also the railroad depot. From the depot to tho Villa a a tine carriage road will bo constructed. Villa l.i Front lies in tho celebrated Utc pas, from which El Passo county de rives its name. The natural sc-enerj-from this point is magnificent. 1 11 the backgrounds and in the center of the s.'mi-c-ircle, rises the grand dome of Pike's peak; immediatlelv in the front and left and about eight mifes awa3", readies heav enward Cheyenne mountain, the bold outline that completes the picture; and on the right tho garden of the gods.
