A CURE FOR SPARKING,
PICKING UP AN ACQUAINTANCE.
aoino months since, a joyous, coiiiajrc-
ous young woman lusiding in Gotliuni,
daughter of highly lespectublo patents,
lound herself somewhat unintentionally
detained at tho lumso of a friend not fur
distant from her fatlior's lesidoncc, one
ovcniDg, and before she was scarcely
mvaie of tho fact, night set in. Tho dis
tance to her homo was but a fow blocks,
lipwover, and as bho expected a little gath
ering of ladies and gentlemen at her fath
er's that ovening sho determined upon 10
ttirning hoiuoward unattended; and, bid
ding her friends 'good night, she hurried
along upon tho walk, toward her resi
dence, into which her family had recently
removed from another part of tho city.
Upon turning tho fiist corner, sho was
suddenly Btartled by tho approach of a
well-dressed young man, who accosted
hor with "good ovening," and offered his
eorviccs to escort her homo! Alarmed,
for au instant, sho would have avoidod
tho btrangor, but as ho advanced to her
hide, sho ventured to turn towards him,
and a glance satisfied her; she recognized
tho young gentleman as a familiar ac
quaintance. Disguising her voico, and
replying in a timid tone, bho accepted tho
liroiloretl gallantry, determined to adinis
istora lesson to her young friond, which
lto should not forget. Tlio conversation
which passed was brief, and thu beau mis
pecting nothing, as ho was not awaio that
tho tamily had changed their quarters,
tripped along by tho young lady's sido,
npjinrcntly very woll pleased with his
companion. In a fow minutes they halt
ed beforo u modebt brick house, in a some
what rctitcd street, at tho west end, and
the lady relinquished her attendant's arm,
and prepared to enter.
"Will you come 1" whispered tho lady,
"Thank you," was tho reply; and
his fair companion opened tho door.
Closing it carefully, they found them
selves in tho entry, in total datkness.
"Wait a tnomont," said tho young la
uv. "and bo nor ect v ntnot 1 will ro-
tuin immediately;" and with these words
sho ascended tho stairs which led to tho
Tho first thought of tho young man as
sho retired, was to open tlio mint door
und move; for ho suspected that -all was
not as ho anticipated. Ho turned to the
door it was fast lie fumbled for tho
latch, or lock, or whatever secured it, but
it was not to bo found; and an instant
nftorwaids ho heard footsteps nppioach
ing iu tho darkness. His heart thumped
agaiust his ribs, and ho began to wish
himself safely out of doors again; but lie
was quickly reassured by tho encouraging
whisper ol his new-mado acquaintance
who approached' him appaiemly with
"Hush !" said slip, "all is Fafo. Bo

Our hero was content, and drawing off
his boots, ho secured them together, and,
holding them iu his hand, ho awaited tho
return of his lady frieud, who had again
ascoudod tho stairs.
Uutcring tho parlor a fow minutes af
terwards, tho fumnlo roguu found some
half a score of young fliends with their
brothers ami beaux piesent, to whom shu
quickly and briefly communicated tho ad
velituio. "I've got him in tho entry, down stairs,"
paid she. "Put out tho lights," she snid,
"kcop peifoctly still, don't bettay tho
slightest bteatll or sound, and J will
slow yousomo spoit in u moment."
Tho lights wero removed, tho party
arranged themselves mound the room
the company know tho victim intimately
and ngainthe lady descended thu stairs
and approached her fiicud.
"Soltly, now," sho baid, taking tho
hand that wns unoccupied with tho boots,
"softly. All is quiet tip stairs como,"
and bho led hor gallant slyly up tho stair
way. His boots dangled agaiust the rail
ing. " sh I" exclaimed the fair one;
"tor pity's sakumuko no noise or all is
lost," Tho beau moved on, grasped his
boots moio securely at his bide, "nor
dicamed of aught save bliss." Least of
all did he suspect tho existenco of a lingo
rent in his stocking but ho was a batch
olor, and this was but a trillo I
Thoy entered tho parlor. All was
darkness and silence, tho lady closed the
door behind her companion, and led him
into tho center of tho room. Not a bioath
was heard, and little did tho gentleman
suspect that ho was at that moment stir
rounded by a do, en persons of his ac
quaintance. "Remain hero ono moment," said tho
girl; '! will get a light."
Tho gallant laised tho soft hand which
had conducted them thus far towaids he
knew not what!-and vcntuied to piess up
on it u kiss; but it was dexterously with
diawn at tho very "nick of time," and
his lips came iu contact with his fingers.
"Waita moment," said his iuamoiata,
leaving him quickly and then passing
through, shu disappeaied. A minute had
scarcely elapsed, but it seemed a month
to tho little party, who weio nearly chok
ing with suppressed inerinient; it was an
ago to the victim, lint gentlo footsteps
weio again heard, and tho beau gazed anx
iously in tho direction of tho door. It

Such a "hu, ha !" as went up from that
little coterie, at that moment, was seldom
heard in tho ucighboihood, befoio or
since. Poor Smith stood for a moment,
not exactly paralyzed thai would be a
faint teim exactly siuiueized iu his
tracks, and ho hugged his boots to his
side, coughed, sneezed, choked then
grinned a ghastly smilo.
As soon as tho paroxysm of laughter
was ovor, tho lady In ought forwaid a

"Pray bo seated, Mr. Smith."

The article on "Death," in tho New
Cyclopedia, has tho following: "As life
approaches extinction, insensibility su
porvenes a numbness and disposition to
ruposo which do not admit of suffering.
Even in thoso cases whore tho activity of
tho mind remains to tho last, and whoro
nervous sensibility would seem to con
tinue, it is surprising how often theio has
been observed a state of happy feoling on
tho approach of death. 'II i had strength
enough to hold a pen, I would writo how
easy and delightful it is to die,' wero tho
last words of tho celebrated Wm. lluntor
during his last moments. Montaigne, in
ono of his osbays, describes an accident
which loft him so senseless that ho was
taken up for dead. On being restoied,
however, ho says: 'Methought my life
only hung upon my lips; and I bhiit. my
eyes to help thrust it out, and took a
pleasure in languishing and letting myself

leeords that a gentlemen who hod been

had not experienced tho blightost feeling
of suffocation. Tho sticam was trans

upright, ho could see tho sun shinning

Democrats party of which Thomas Jef
ferson was tho leader. They niu fond of
quoting his opinions, nud the claim is
piefeiicd unceasingly thut his piiuciples
aio identical with theirs. Wu shall not
aiguo about this matter, just now; it is
enough that wo prosent a series of facts,
which defy such analysis as shall favor
the pretensions of thoo new-found admir
ers of Mr. ileffeison.
Wo want tho reader to nolo that tho
old Demo'sratio party of 1700 1809 was
strongest in piocisuly thoso localities
whciotho Democratic paity of 1850 is
dominant to-day. Ptiither, wo wish him
to observe that whoic tho oltl school "lto-
publicans" of 1800 weio weakest the
now-light bhaiu Republicans are strong

party of '60 is entrenched, so lor as ma
jorities go, in tho same Stales it held in
1790 loOU, and tho modern Republican
(Opposition) party preponderates in tho
samo States that wero carried against Mi.
Jcffei son 1790 and 1809.
Obierve, First, thut tho stronghold of
Rlack Republicanism is iu New England.
The six States composing that .part of
the Confederacy nro now leprcscnted iu
both branches of tho National Legislating
by a solid phalanx of Black Republican
Congressmen. Every distiicthus been
carried against tho Demociats. How
was it in 1790, when, for tho first time
Mr. tlelfurson was a candidate for tho
Piesidency? Not one vote was given him
by a New England State not one!
John Adams received 71 votes, and of
these 80 moio than half came from
New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachu
setts, Connecticut and Rhodo Island. The
popular expression in New England was
not more decidedly adverse to Mr. Bu
chanan, tluee years ngo, than to Mr. Jef
fenoii sixty years beforo. Hcio is a stii-
king coincidence. What will you do
Observe, Secondly, that in Now Eng
land, at tho election of 1S00, the iCMilt
was piccisely the sumo as it had been in
1790. Every clectoial vote 89 was
cast for Mr. Adams; for Mr. Jefferson, us
befote, not one. Thus a second tinio was

about Thomas Jefferson and Thomas Jef

In 1804, thero was a systematic oppo
sition to Mr. Jefferson's re-election. In
consequence of this, thocleijtotial colleges
weio nearly, unanimous for him. He re
ceived 152 voles out of 107. Nino of the

cumstance was stigmatized by Josiah
Quincy, jr., as "sixteen evidences of the
existence of tho Slavo Ttndo in Massachu
setts!" A harsher expression could not
have been employed. It is intensely sig
nificant of tho ical feeling of that timo,
and shows up sham Republican preten
sion inja strong light. This Josiah Quin
cy, jr., was living in 1850, and gave Fro-

Iu 1795, Mr. Jefferson received 08 elec

In 1800, his electoral voto was 73 all
