The country was for her a veritable re treat; she shunned re-unions, and was only happy in solitude. The charms of a chosen circle, the pleasures ofthe world, had for ber no attraction, and her favorite recreation was that of angling an amusement wo thy ol an unfeeling woman. She was accustomed every pleasant day to ataiion herself in the extremity of the loritly island of Chiton, and there with a book in one hand and her line in the other, her lime va passed in fishing, reading or dreaming. A lover, who hid always been intimidated by har coldness, and who had never ventured on a spoken or a written declaration, surpris ed her at her favorite pursuit, one day, when he hid come lo the iiland for the purpose of enioyintr a swimming bith. - He observed her for i long time without discovery, and bu.ied himself with thinking how be might turn to his advantaee this lonerv amusemint ot nng ling. His reveries were to deep and so fortu nate, that he at last hit upon the desired plan a novel expedient indeed, yet they are al wsyi moKl successful with such women pre lend lo be lnvulneiahle.

D had re sumed ber accustomed place, he slipped away lo a remote and retired shelter, and, alternat ing divested himself of his clothing, he en tered the stream. An excellent swimmer and skillfu diver, he trusted to his aquatic talent for the success of his enterprise. H swam to the end of the island with the greatest precau tion, favored by the chances ofthe bank and bushel which hung their dense foliage above the waters. In his lips was a note folded snd sealed, and on arriving near the ap t where Mmt. was silling, he msde a dive, and ligriuy seizing tha hook; be attached to it his tc Iter. Mme. 0 , perceiving the movemsni oi her line, supposed that a fish was biting. - The young man hud returned ss he come; he bad doubled the cape which, extending out into the water, separste them from esch other, and had rerained his post without the leas' noie in his passsge under the willows. The deed was done. t Mme. D pulled in her line, and what wns her surprise to observe, dangling upon the bnrb of her hook, not the expected aliiner, but an unexpected letter! This was, however, trifl ing, and her surprise became stupe faction when, on detaching the transfixed billet ihe read upon the envelope. Iter name ! . So, then, this 'eller which she bad fished up was addressed to her! This was somewhat miraculous. She wss sfmid. Her .troubled glance scnitinieed he surrounding space; but there wss noihingseen or heard; al wss still and lonely, both on land and water. She quit ed her seat, but took iway the let ter. As soon as she was alone and closated with herself, and as soon ss the paper wa dry a paper perfectly water proof, and writ ten upon wiln indellible ink she unsealed the letter ind commenced its perusal.

D .. was no believer in magic; still there was something strange and super us'tirsl in all thil. ' She had an idea of throwing back the letter into the stream, but relinquished it. Ihe most stubborn and haughty woman is always disarmed in face of that strsnge mystery whieh captivates her imagination This second litter was more tender, more passionate, more charmins. than the first Mine. D re-read it several times, ard could not help thinking of Ihe d-lightful mer man who wrote such bewitching letters.

"I wonder if Mrs. Saunders knowi how that servant treats ber child ?" said Mrs. Curran, as the sat it her parlor window one dty, di recting, as she spoke, the attention of her sis ter to a nursery maid, who was occupying a window opposite. The sash was wideup.and though Ihi bleak March wind blew directly in the maid held a young infant in her arms. "I am sometimes tempted to tell Mia. Saunders of o: the girl's eareiessncss, for the idle thingsiti here, witn that poor child, every tuns the mother goea out. But we don't visit, and Mrs. Saunders might think I was interfering." in greai cities, as many readers doubtless ire aware, ladies often live opposite to each oiner, tor years, without being acquainted. "1 wouldn't have anything to do with it," replied Mrs. Curran's sister; who wss s good type of the selfish, prudent lady: ' it's Mrs. Se under business to see that she ban good servant; and besides she might think you were unjust to the girl. I never knew any good to eom of playing the good Samaritan in matter of this kind." : "Perhaps you're right," answered Mrs Cur ran, only half convinced; "but it makes my heart ache to see the poor little thing. It's nevtr clothed sufficiently warm; and, when the window is up, if looks blue with cold," "It's a first child." renlied Ihe sister, tsrt- lentionslv, going on with her crochf tling; "when Mrs. aunders has bali-a-dozen, she'll know better." ' "A great alrong girl," indignantly cried Mrs. Curran, "to sit there unconcernedly, as if the dear, poor babe could resist cold ss well as herself!" . "Softly, softly, Mrs. Impetuous," said the humored sister: "Mrs. Saunders can't be so blind as not to know the real slat of Ihe case; and, in that event, she would consider your ntetference as an iinpuiatiou on berasa moth er." Much more was said; but Mrs Currsn's be nevolent purpose was overruled principally, l must be confessed, on the p'.ea last advanc ed. Injustice, however, was done by that plea, o Mrs. Saundern. Slie was youn and inex perienced; bad robust health herself; believed ber nursery-maid to be prudent, because the girl had come well recommended; and had re mained ignorant of the exposuie of her infant, because, though dozen neighbors hsd seen the servant's criminal follv.no one cared toat- sume the responsibility of interfering. No Mother could hive loved herchild better then Mrs. Saunders. To the extent of htr knowledge, she did all she could to rear it healthfully; and ifthe babe was sick for even half a day, would not let itgo out of her arms. But, when the child seemed well, she was ac customed fori hour or two duly, to walk out for excerriae ind fresh air: a commenda ble Mbit, rnd one indirectly beneficial to the infant but which, as we have seen, led to the exposure of the babe to the chillesl wind of March. The (null was, theretore, not tn the want of love, nor in leaving the infant ta seek necessary exercise for herself, but in believing too implicitly in ihe recommendations bar servant hsd received as a prudent nurse.

"It's the time it'i al the window with its nurse." Likelyenoiieli," retor'ed hersinler. "Such exposure wo Id make most of us sick.,' "How t wish l Knew the mother," answered the kind-hearted Mrs Curran. "Poor thine I remember bow 1 suffered, when my first child was ill; snd she's just ss inexperieaced, Iv'c no d.iubt, as I was then." The next day, when Mrs. Curran went to her chamber window, after dressing she saw the opposite house closed, ind the blinds drswn down. The child as she learned on in quiry, hsd died in the night, from an attack of croup. "Oh ! it I bad onlv warned the poor mother in lime," she said, bitterly. The almost heart broken m- tlier heard the truth respecting her servant, when it was too late. Oh! ifl had been more careful," she cried in anguish, "and seen for myself thst the nurse wss trustworthy. But now, no care can give me my baby again. No, n ver, never !"

If In reply to Ibis question, asked by the N.O. Organ, a correspondent furnishes I long irlicle, from which we tike the following : If I have not failed in establishing the utter uselessness of alcohol is a beverage proved, beyond a doubt, that neither real noriprnrent goad result from it use a drink il is only nc.esssry to lesrn whether il produce any ef fects; snd if so, how far they work injury or evil. It is principle of economy that man ey or lime spent in acquiring things of no value is a waste. Ethics teaches lhat waste or prod igality is sin. Let us take a cursory view at the expenso waste attending tha use of this article. In looking over the report Of the Secretary ef the treasury of the fiscal year, I find that upwards of seven millions (!) hsve been ex pended for foreign liquors. And of this amount three millions and a quarter of dollars for the article of brandy alone ! And from imports of Ihe present year, the current expenses must exceed the last by two millions of dollars! The amount ol brandy imported last yeir ex ceeded the year orevious by one million two hundred thousand dollars, and wines in pro portion. Of course, th money expended must always be in proportion to this increase of im aortation. Who pays this enormous sum fori useless beverage ? Th importer I hesr one say. True, but what dues he do with t ia amount of liquors ? Transfer it to the retail er at a handsome profit. And what then be comes of it? comes of it ? Consumer you who it tha bar, in the fashionable saloons you, the gen teel dram-diinker, at an enormous profit of from one to two hundred per tent, finally psy lor ail this useless importation ! By the time it is sold out, drink by drink, it has cost, in o ah, no less than double il imported cost. Fourteen millions of dollars Urns given, worse than given away I And what becomes of the money ? Seven millions are handed over to tht foreigners for whit is drink, and the other leven millioni laid by to pay for Ihe excess imported the succeeding year. Thus fourteen millions of money go out of th country year after year, with a premising annual increase, draining the nation of its wealth, and directly impoverishing the people. Of what good i the rumseller, oh. my countrymen, but to render you and I, and our beloved country poor ; to lone iro-a the wt.ole community millions aod milli-jna f dollars every year, without giving anything of e in return, and handing it over to foreigr. hand to enrich kings and despots, to build up tyranny and oppression, at the sad expense of our homes, our firesides, of life usell. Let as carry these calculations further. There is imported about two and a half gal lons of liquor to each man. woman and child In the Utii'.td Slates. The amount manufac tured at home far exceeds this. All amount- in little ihorto' ten gillons toeichsoul. The women norch Idren f course, never use,' heir shires; iboutoue fifth of themales, alto, of the country never use say intoxicating liquors whatever. Add, therefore, the shares not used by these portions of our inhab itants to the shares of those who drink, and see the enormous quantity drank by about four millions of our citizens. And who are these citizens -these drinkers ? Generally the no blest, the best the hone and sinew of tht land. And when we reflect how injurious are all ita effects, thst the wise, the good, the working c!-s, sre, by its use, rendeied idle, wasteful, vicious and criminal the ri.m seller's use to society becomes apparent. Look at the waste. An hour's time ia worth something say ten centi. One-fifth of eur citizens drik,and in so d.iinc, must waste more or less of their time. Not a few lose day and night all their time. Many lose half their time, still more a fourth, and so on. The average waste cannot be less than one hour per day. Time is ironey. At ten cents labour, then four hundred thousand dollars eich and everyday ire lost to families to society, to government. At the end afa year, fourteen millions six bum' red thousand dollars is thus worse than thrown away. A years drinking is at the immediate cost of 114,000,000 Tor the foreign liquor; the home manufactured, at least the lame amount and in time 14. 600,000, making the handsome sum of $42,600,000. Think of it reader, forty- two millions six hundred thousand dollars, by the means of the rumseller, squandered gone without one good in return for this enormous outlay. This may be considered the least of its evil consequences. AJ1 medical writers sgree, and all bumsn experience confirms the statement, thit ilcoliol, used as a beveraxe, 'horleni life. If fi fly th urand annually find untimely graves, (and this is fur short of the number, if we take into consideration the dis eases, producing death, that are generated by the use of this poisonous liquor, eighty revo lutions numbers the last victim of the four millions of soul! Ten years may safely oe deducted from the 'ife of each one of this great army. A yeir of time, is worth to each ind every sober, indcsinous man, five hundred dollars. This is a low estimate. Ten years lost is five thousand dollars. Four million times this amount is twenty millions of dollars: An amount twelve men, counting twelve hours per day, t t',e rate of sixty dol liis per minute, could not count in a hundred years! Just think of a generation of people losing twenty millions of dollars of time, be sides every year, money and klleuiss, squan der forty-two millions six hundred thousand dollais, and in return receive misery ! What would this mis-spent money and lost labor aot do, if properly ipplied to the improvement of out homes ind our country. A palal woula be the home of every mm ; the wholecountry an Eden ; a school house, fitted as it should be, in every neighborhoodwith a suitable and well-piid i. cher; clothing the best, and food in abundance, for a II j railroads traverse to ind from every msn'i door ; connect every town, village ind hamlet ; thread the length and breadth of the land with teleeraplic wires. In short, there is no useful thing it would not effect. The count'ess btensings flowing from such an enormous source of wealth no man could enumerate. Of ,vhat good is tha rum sella ? To deprive ur of all these things. UTA Yankee in one of our New England towns, going into the market to buy a mess of sausages, held out a link to Tiger, his dot..

'-,v TAKING IN A KNOWING ONE—THE BITER BIT. M. Trivtrt Den him, a resident of Calcutta, wsi a civilian of dashing exterior and plausi ble ways, though in fact araua a adrentuar ont who (ought to but and to play it tvtry opportunity, ind who always won, and won irl such a ininner ai to raise strange suspicions. and something worse than suspicions, in the breast of a certain Major Byrne, whose regi ment was then stationed in the above eity. - - It io happened that the litter one day enter ed the house of in official pirsonage one who in a runner, figured high in the society or Calcutta whose hospitality waa equal to bit -wealth, and whose urbanity and fine aature were on a par with both. Co being shown into a splendid drawing-room, where aome fur niture just received from Europe lay unpack ed, he found M. Travara Denham, arrived there before bim, in conversation with the host, who wat warmly pressing him to dine with him next day. Carelessly saluting Den ham, Byrne advanced lo the cbimney-piece.at the side of which a smll ooncaie mirror, of ac elegant but still old-fashioned shape, waa fixed among a group of (mail paintings. When Denham ws gone, Major Byrne turned to his host, ind laid, "If Mr. Denbam offers to make a bet with you about that ta ble," pointing to a new one "take bim at hit ft "A bet ! the table 1 my dear fellow' begun the other.. "Whist, and listen to me," said ihe major ; and he communicated io his friend what, by the extravagant fit of laughter it produced. must hive been highly Imuting. To morrow came. The guests sssemb'er', and with them were Major Byrn and Mr. Denham. Anions- th article of furniture re marked, was the new dining-table, and, at Byrne hid expected, Denbam waa on tne out tilt. "The table would certainly be a tplendid one, were it not little too high," observed the latter, with a knowing glance at ita pro portions. "Too high ! Nonsense," returned its owner laughing. "It's only the usual height say 30 inches." "My ey s rare'y deceived," end Denham, confidently; "and I am certain lhat it is more than that nay, tbul it is one and thirty inches high." "Well, I think this time your eye does de ceive you," retorted their host; "and" "And I am ao confident of the contrary," continued Denham, "that I should not mind making wager it is full the measurment I atate." Their host looked at Byrne, who winked drolly in return, unobserved by the clever gamester, and then he quietly replied : "A wuger ! My dear fellow, you would be sure lo lose, take my word lor it." "Lose, eh !" and Denham smiled. "Well if you like, I'll bet you a cool thousand aye, two that it is you who are in (be wrong." "Two thousand !" and their host shook ki head, and 1 6ked very gravely at Denham, tnd again at the table. "Yes, two thousand. '." said Penham, get ting warm with eagerness, and taking out hit pockelbook, from which he counted out notes to that amount. He had fleeced several you if fellows lately been "luckey," he called it, without remorse and was tolerably flush of money." "Why," hesitated the chsllenged, "I think it would be a foolish wsger, but by gad ! I don't like to be put at defence, and so I'll be I," and at the same instant he also drew forth the like sum, which, withDenham's two thousand, was deposited With a gentleman ' present. "You are sure to lose," cried Denham tri umphantly, and scarcely able to conceal hit delight. "I'm certain to win," the host said, very gravely, as with expectation on tiptoe, a pri vate in the engineers, who was it hand and called in, proceeded to measure the height of the table. "Thirty inches !" proiuunced the latter, after a pause. What ?" cried Denbam, with t start of rsge flushing and then turning pale. "It must be a mistake." "No," several of the guest said; "Thirty inches is the height. Come ind judge for yourself." And unmistakably the height so turned out. v "The devil !" exclaimed Denham, carried away by bis ruinous failure. "I'm certain that yesterday 1 measured it to be thirty-one inches.', "Yes, faith," said Byrne, stepping forward "ind it'i meself that iw ye, me boy, mark ing the sime on your hip is ye stood beside it, and thinking w hat ye were up to, be dad ! we had the Ugt tawed iff an inch, and. now, I think for once,the tables are turned upon ye!" nd, amid a roar af laughter, as the roomy was handed to the winner, ihe discomfit ted gambler rushed from the robm, and was soon after profitably missel from hii hi u nil and circle.
