" I should liko to know tho name of that handsome young fellow who accompanied you to church last Sunday," remarked Clara Mullins, to her amiable and beautiful cousin Maria Sedgeland. 44 That's a pretty question to aBk. Do you imagine I am so simple as to tell all I know in this age of secret societies ? The next thing you will want an introduction; by-aud-by you will set you cap, and who knows but you may steal away my gallaut beau, and then leavo tuc alone in the glory of single blessedness.'' "Now, Mary, Btop poking fun at me, and let's know the name of that nice young man." "Well, Clara, if it will afford you so much gratification to ascertain his name, I will not be so ciuel as to withhold it; here if his card." " So you admiro the name, and think he who wears it personally handsome." " Ye?, Mai iu, I think he is the perfect model of a man. How neatly, and yet how plainly be dresses. What a flue figure, broad forehead and beautiful eyes he has ! Is ho a lawyer, doctor, or professor, or merchant, or student? What is he?" fl lie is a printer." " A publisher, you mean." " No, he picks up types in a newspaper dSice." " O, now I understand you ; you intend to say that he is tho editor and proprietor of a newspaper." " No, my dear couin, he is a journey man printer." " You don't, say he is nothing but a jour neyman !" 44 How came yon, cousin, to allow him to ait in our pew, and beau you home from church ? I would not permit a mechanic to touch my nrni with a pair of tongs, J think you ought to be ashamed of such vulgar society. I shall inform ma this very day, and so long as you remain under this roof, I am quite sure she will not allow that plebean printer to pay any attention to you." " I declare," observed Maria, pleasantly, '! you hare given me a Uaudle lecture. If that distinguished foreigner who fell in love with you at the museum, and who has been bo assiduous in his attentions ever since he obtained an introduction, could have heard you, I have no doubt ho would highly com mend you for looking down on what he palls the common hetd." "I, wish you to understand that Mr. Fitxgammon is a real gentleman by birth, and that he has the advantage of an ample fortune," continued Clara. ' I am heartily sorry, my dear cousin, that you encourage the addresses of such a fop. I am sure he does not display much ood breeding ; and as for education, be seldom speaks without murdering his mother tongue. For my part, I should prefer the society of one who works for a living, pro vided he is honest, virtuous, sober and intelligent. I have been acquainted with "Mr. Raymond ever since he was a child indeed we were schoolmates. I knew his parents, and although they are poor they are quite respectable, and have given George a good common education, and he is now occupying his leisure hours in acquiring a knowledge of the languages. Even you admire bis personal attractions, and all acknowledge that his intellectual endow ments are far superior to his physical beauty." if"l am much obliged to you for that ser mon, kliss Maria Sedgeland ; it does not require the assistance of a spy glass or mi croscope to discover the state of jour feel ings in regard to this vexed question. The troth is you are envjous or jealous, because I bate made an impression on the heart of Mr. Fitxgammon, while you can pick up a poor shiftless fellow, who picks upNetters in a nrinting office. Ma, will put a stop to your courtship, and if you were -at the altar pa would rise and forbid the baas." ?The next morning, immediately after "breakfast, Maria was requested Jo go into her Mat a room, one had oeei eeetea one a few moments, when the aristocratic old lady came into the apartment and observed, V I hire been informed that without my knowledge or cousent you have accepted the attention of a young man employed in a printing office." " Well, aunt," remarked Maria, blushing to the temples, " Mr. Raymond came from my native town ; and we have been ac quainted ever since we were children. He is a respectable young man, and a welcome guest in the best circles of society." " Well, Miss, I shall put an immediate stop to such an interview as you have with him. You shall not go with him to the theatre nor driuk wine with him at pnrties." " He never goes to the theatre, and he never drinks wine. He belong to a division of the Sons of Temperance." " So he is a cold water rat ! Now I hate him more than I did before, and if he ever comes to my house I will drive him away with a broomstick." " John," said Mr. Mullins to bis servant man, " take this billet doux to the hotel where Mr. Fitzgammon boards, and give it to bim yourself with my compliments." It was past nine o'clock, and yet Mr. Fitzgammon was still in the embrace of Morpheus. The waiter, glad to awaken the sleeper, and feed bim, so that the dining room might be got in readiness for the next meal, awoke him at once. He usually spent an hour at his glass, unpapering his curls, lacing his stays, &c. Whilst he was dressing and decorating his person, John commenced conversation with an intelligent waiter, who was au old chum of his. " I guess missus is goin' to have a party to-night, and this note is to ax the gentle man to attend." " You do not call him a gentleman, I hope. He is as cross as a bear with a sore head, and is mere trouble at the table than any other six boarders in the house. He smells tho soup until his moustache dips into it, and then pronounces it unfit for the pigs; he says that the beefsteak is tougher than solo leather the butter as strong as Samson and (he pies and puddings not to be compared to such luxuries in London. We have to be as careful in feeding him as though hi were a wild beast, gnashing his teeth on the keeper of the menagerie." " Why, how you talk, Bob. Miss Clara takes quite a shine to him, and she would have thrown a kettle of hot water on you if she beard whit you said now. I should not wonder if they got mariied before long She says be is the son of a lord." " Son of a devil, more likely." 44 Well, if they should pair off, after bill ing and coning a while, I hope he will make Miss Clara stand around, for she has a horrid temper, and Miss Sedgeland has to put up with her ill humor. She is half the time scolding her because a workman went with her to meeting on Sunday." " Are the old folks rich ?"' "They arc well to do in the world, but they need not turn up their noees at poor folks, for I remember the time when old Mullins couldn't cut such a swath as be does now. lie used to keep a barber shop, and had some ida of taking my father into partnership with him, but father refused to have anything to do with the old skin flint. He griped overy cent until it squealed, and soon saved enough to go to brokering on a small scale. Folks used to laugh, and say one polo would do for both branches of business. Now he uses soft soap, and shoves notes, and is ashamed of the more honest and honorable calling of shaving faces. I wish the old man would try his hand on the face of the dandy who is after his daughter." " Yes, John, I think he could improve his looks, but then, if a man makes a beast of himself, I can see no earthly reason why he shouldn't look like one. I believe this stranger, who palms himself off as a dis tinguished foreigner is an impudent impos tor, without either wit, money or morality; and should bo sorry to have him marry your young mistress." " Well, John, I read books sod study human nature, and if I am not vastly mis taken, the ill-looking, ill-natured and ignor ant foppling of whom we have been speak ing, is a vile fellow, and ought to be exposed. I think it would be a good idea to get Mr. Raymond to publish him." " Do you mean Raymond, the printer 7" "Yes-" " He is the very man that went to ohnrch with the lovely and graceful Miss Sedgeland last Sunday, and Missus has vowed he shall never darken her doors agaiu." " What an old goose she must be. Mr. Raymond is loved and respected by all who know him. Several of our oldest, most wealthy and influential citizens have clubbed together and raised funds enough to buy a press and types, and have engaged bim to edit a newspaper they design to publish. He is the famous author of the thrilling sketches over the jnitials of G. R." "Miss Clara says she wouldn't touch him with a pair of tongs, and that he is a low fellow, fit only to associate with vulgar people." 14 Pshaw I that's all moonshine. The time may come when she will be glad to be in his company. There is an accomplished and pretty young lady boarding here who gave the mitten to Mr. Fitxgammon, but she would be delighted to have Mr. Ray mond accept her hand, her fortune." As John surmised, that very evening there was a grand soiree at the homse owaed and occupied by the haughty homely Mrs. and the hard-fisted Mr. Mullins. At an early hour, the washed, combed, brushed, curled, dressed, perfumed and decorated Mr. Fitzgammon might have been seen ascending the flight of granite steps, and after spelling out the name engraved on the door-plate, pqlled the bell with such violence that the lap-dog howled with the ear ache, and the servants started in alarm, and the old woman wondered what on earth was the matter. He was escorted into the pleasant room which was handsomely furnished with the most fashionable furniture. After being introduced to the company present, he made a low bow, tried to smile, scraped his feet on the carpet, and then awkwardly tumbled like a bale of dry goods on the sofa; after which he looked up with an air of wondrous wisdom and importance, which seemed to say, " what think ye of this imported specimen of gentiliry ?" He really was a remarkable looking ob ject. His coarse hair was oiled, curled and scented. He stared at every person in tho room through his quizzing glass. He wore on his unintellectual face, moustache, im perial, whiskers and goatee, looking like an ass that had swallowed a horse, and left the tail sticking out of his mouth. His red carrot fingers were hooped with huge rings, and a broach large enough for a looking-glass stuck upon his ruffled shirt bosom. Most persons could have seen at a glance that he was one of those nondescript crea tures who know but little of themselves externally, except what they learn from the looking-glass, and who know nothing of themselves, iuternally, except what they feel from the liquor-glass. The following conversation between the parties will afford an idea of the mental calibre of the dis tinguished gentlemen. 14 It is a beautiful evening, sir," remark ed one of the company. " Very foine." 44 How do you liko our climate, sir?" "Very foine." " You have seen the Falls of Niagara, I am told. What do you think of that sub lime and beautiful water wonder V " It is very foine." " I think I saw you at the meeting which was recently addressed by the Hon. Daniel Webster; what do you think of his eloquent and magnificient speech ?" " It was very foine," " How do you feel, sir, when excited by the thrilling, electrifying cloqucucc of our Demosthenes ?" 44 Very foine." 44 The sensation must bo akin to the trumpeting of tho storm when the winds do battle. What are your sensations during a storm at sea ?" 44 1 am very sick at the stomach, at such limes, but when we have a smooth sea and a fair wind, I feel very foine." lhe conversation was here interrupted by the appearance of Mrs. Mullins and her daughter." They were richly dressed and gorgeously jewelled, and Clara, notwith standing the unmistakable lines which ill teaipcr had traced upon her countenance, was very beautiful to look upon. The mo ment they entered the room, Mr. Fitzgam mon rose from his seat and squeezed the band of Miss Clara, and told her she looked lovely, and44 very foine." In the course of the evening, he ventured to say she was a charming girl, fit to be the wife of a lord, and he meant what he said, 'pon honor. Maria was present at the party, and her aunt availed herself of an early opportunity to ask her how she would like the attention of such a man as Mr. Fitzgammon. 44 Best at a distance," said sbo, " I could not endure such a bandbox dandy, whose head is as empty as his hat." 44 You rude thing, how dare you speak so disparagingly of my company in my own house 1" " Why, aunt, he has been winking at me most impertinently through his quizzing glass, He is not a gentleman and ought to be requested to leave the house. If be does uot, by your permission I will retire to my room. I suppose you are anxious to see the journeyman printer, but if he dares to show his face within reach of a poker, 1 will drive bim into the street. I have a will and a way to punish upstarts who do not kqov their owp plape and have no regard for the higher order of society. At a late hour that night, or rather at an early hour the next morning, the party broke up; but unfortunate Mr. Fitzgam; mon had partaken too freely of wine, and sober John was nominated and apppinted a committee of one to lead the eminent stranger to his lodging?. The next day it was rumored in differ ent parts of the city, that a lord, duke, knight or earl, or sqmethiog else b,ao) fallen in love with Miss Mullen, the broker's daughter. Maria received a severe candling from h.er aunt, and djtto from ber dear cousin, because she spoke so contemptuous ly of jlr. Fitxgammon. Miss Mullen's jealousy induced her to believe that several young ladies were not only smitten but deep in love wjth the gojden calf she worshipped, and in order to make sure of the idol of her affections, she and her parents went to work in good earn est to bring about a match and have the parries nniieji u miinuuuiiii aiimucc. The landlord to whom Mr. Fitxgamiaoa was indebted for board and borrowed mosey, did not p 'lose a cu did not press his claims, for fear he flight etomcr. In a short time arrangements were made for the wedding. Milliners, tailors, shoe makers, and confectioners, were all busy at work. The day selected, the guests were invited, and all the interested parties were on the tiptoe of anticipation, when an event occurred which is related as follows : 44 Wife, did you see the new paper?" - " Yes, I saw it, but you know as well as I do, that I have no time to read newspa pers. Clara is to be married next Monday, and I shall have to be as busy as a dress maker, or cut a sorry figure at the wedding." 14 But here is a fist pointing to a para graph about Mr. Fitzgammon, the distin guished foreigner." 44 Do read, pa," said Clara, smiling, " I knew he would make a noise in the world. A man of his rank in society, having such a princely fortune, and a variety of accom plishments, such fascinating manners and such superb talents, cannot fail to make a great sensation among the people competent to appreciate his geniu. Let us bear it, pa." 44 We have received the London Times." " Hear this, ma, the news are from Eng land. I suppose my envious, jealous saint of a cousin, who told me she believed some body an impostor, will see ber mistake." "Do let mo read without interruption, if you please.'1 " We received, by last night's mail, a copy of the London Times, which contained the following startling and unexpected an nouncement : John Gammon, who was a servant in the service of Win. Fitz, Eq , has robbed his mother of considerable clothing and jewelry, and it is supposed he bas sailed for America. He is about thirty years of age, of medium size, bas dark eyes, coarse curly hair, and a scar on bis left cheek, which he received from the watch man who arrested him in the act of whip ping his wife. One hundred pounds shall be given to the person who secures the thief Early this morning, one of our efficient police officers read the announce ment and at once put the Fitz and Gam mon together, went to the hotel where be found a sleeping beaut' with a scar on hi left cheek, and the name of Fitz on some silver spoons in bis trunk. He awoke and arrested Mr. Gammon, and escorted him to jail." Clara fainted when she heard the sad tidings, and after dbe came to her senses, she exclaimed : " O, ma, O, pa ! what shall I do? My dresses are made, our friends arc invited, everybody will laugh at me ! I wish I could be shut up iu a nunery." 14 What a villain he must b" paid Mr?. Mullin, " He bas a wife now living. He has been stealing spoons. I shouldn't won der if he Etole that silver spoon off the mantle-piece, for I missed it the day after be first called here. I hope the authorities will hang him by the ucck until he is choked to death." 44 31 r. Mullins, who is the editor of that paper?" "Mr. George Raymond." 44 1 wonder if that is the young man who gallanted Maria to meeting, that Sunday ?" "I suppose it is, said Mr. Mullins. 44 Well, go and ask him concerning the particulars of this Eingulnr and most un happy affair." Mr. Mullins went to the office and en quiied if Mr. Raymond was in. "N.O, sir," was the answer; "he bas gone fp. the State House. He has recently been elected to the Senate, and consequently spends much of his hme ;n the Senate Chamber." " s this Mr. Raymond the young man who used to work in the brick building across the way ?" "Yes, sir." " When he returns, give my compliments to him, and say my name is Mullins, and that all the members of my family would be happy to see bim." Mr. Mullins returned and informed the family that the journeyman printer had become not oqly an editor, but also a prom inent member of the Senate, and that the news respecting Mr. Fitzgammon was also too true. The intelligence spread like wild fire through the city, and offered a rich feast for tale bearers and scandal mongers, and those who carry the devil's mail bag from door to door, had their hapds, hearts and mouths full for a fortnight. The Hon. Mr. Raymond the low born journeyman the plebean printer who be longed to the vulgar htrd caljed frequently to see the beautiful Jaria Sedgeland ; and although Clara set her pap for him, and tried all the skill of an experienced coquette, she failed to win the heart of the printer, who became the happy husband, of Maria Sedgland.

ANDES CANNIBALS. The character of the trans-Andean reg ion of Peru is that of vasts forests, fre queuted by a few Indian tribes, who shun the approach of civilized man and resent an iutrusion into their private haunts by a shower of poisoned arrows. The aburigi nees of the valleys of the Eastern Andes are the most cruel, ill favored and untama ble of all the South American savages. They wander nuked through the dense woods by tracks unknown to any but them selves, and are armed with bows and slings. They live on monkey?, bird, bananas and fib. Of these people, called Cunchos. little is known, Ttiey are supposed to oc cupy a large extent of country within the Brazilian Empire, and they are accused of cannibalism. Missionaries who have pene trated into their country affirm that there are three tribes, the Antes, the Chunchns and the Casoibas, which war upon each other for the purpose of gratifying their passion for human flesh : but tales of can nibalism arc seldom supported by the testi mony of the eye-witnesses, and in countries where animal food is easy to procure they are seldom entitled to credit The Chun chos are said to make an exception unknown in the usages of other tribes they never eat their female prisoners. This forbear ance, however, docs not arise from any chivalrous feeling, but from a confirmed belief that women are impure beings, and were created for the torment of man, and that their flesh is to be eschewed as in the highest degree poisonous. A STREET INCIDENT. A full rigged maid of fashion, with hoops all boldly set, moved up the sidewalk gaily observed by all fhe met. The walk was very wide, but the hoop-skirts were much wider, and 'twere useless even to think of walking up beside her. Her cheeks were red as roses, her face was all a-smile, and ber tread it was as dainty as though earth was all too vile. It was her hour of triumph, and she didn't seem to know that a coasting sled was coming at t pace not very slow. But it came, and ere she knew it, her " props " were knocked away, aud she was going down the street with a boy upon his sleigh. The wind blew quito roughly, turning all the hoops aback, and of partly smothered screams thero wasn't any lack, while the maiden didn't know what she was orwasu't about, her person much resembled an -umbrella inside out. The people stopped and wondered, as the swiftly speeding sleigh devotedly kept onward, rushing past aud far away ; the boy cried '.' road,' and liked it, and safely " shied " his sled, with bis own feet pointing backward, and the maid's stuck out ahead. They gained the level safely, and the maiden full of wrath, looked back in acgered sUen.ce, oq their quickly traveled path. "You good for nothing scamp," she cried, " I've a mind to shake you well !" "Your face was covered up, mem, and ynu know I never'U tell !" said the coasting lad quite boldly, mid in a jovial mood he bowed, and said, " good morning, mem, you held your feet up good !" t, In a car on a railroad which runs into New York, a few mornings ago, a scene occurred which will not soon bp forgotten. A person, dressed as a gentleman, speaking to a friend across the car said: " Well, I hope the war will last six months longer. If it does I shall have made enough to re tire from business. n the last six months I've made a hundred thousand dollars six months more and shall have enough." A lady sat behind the speaker, and neces sarily heard bis remark ; but when he was done she tapped him on the shoulder, and said to him ; " Sir, I had two sonsr-one of them was killed at the battle of Fredericks burg; the other was killed at the battle of Murfrcesboro." She was silent a moment, and so were all around, who heard ber. Then, overcome by her indignation, she suddenly slapped the speculator, first on one cheek, then on the other, and b.efore .he fellow could say a word the passengers sitting near, who bad witnessed the whole affair, seized him and pushed him hurriedly out of the car, as one not fit to ride with decent people. foil. ; Hon. Henry J. Raymond, of the Times, had a brother in one of the New York Regiments, and went in pursuit of that brother's remains. The pirpumstance is very funny. Severnl days ago Mr. Raymond received the following telegram : " c our Droiuer a cup yop fa Plains.." at Belle He hastened to the arav as ouick ts Uteam could carry hjm, to perform tjo last offices of affection. Arriving at Belle Plain, be was a great deal astonished to not only find bis brother alive, but in yjgorous health. The original message bad been : 44 your brother's corp is at Belle Plain. . m mm y " fjrandma, do yoa know why I cap see ap jn the air so far ?" asked Charlie, a lit tle foar year old, of a venerable lady, who set on the gardep seat knitting.

CHARLESTON AND ITS DEFENCES, The London Times, for February ISth, bas a letter from Charleston, in which soma interesting particulars are given of the place and its defeuces: To assert that Charleston, in its present attitude, is impregnable, would obviously bs a ludicrous fallacy ; but it is none tho loss true that it could not be taken without an enormous force attacking simultaneously by sea and lnd, and that the Attack, even in that case, would have to bo conducted with desperate valor before it could be sue cessful. At the entrance of the harbor, Fort Sumter, thoroughly repaired, and mounting enormous guns c?t barldte, frowns at the blocksders, while the neigh boring points, on Morris Island and Sulli? van's Island, from which the memorable, attack upon the fort on the 13th of April, 1861, was conducted, are iu possession of the Confederates, and are not likely to pas out of their bauds. Behind Fort Sumter a new fort, which takes its name from Gen. Ripley, and is built almost entirely of pal metto wood, enhances the difficulty to which ships are expose-! in approaching tho town. All that two of the most accomplished engineer officers of the Confederacy Geng. Leo and Beauregard could suggest or devise, has been done to strengthen the town on tho land side. General Lee, be fore he was moved to Virginia and assumed his present high position, was for somo time iq command of Charleston, and by him tho first lino of land defences was planned aud executed. This lino has grown and expanded at the inspiration of Beauregard into a perfect net-work of earthworks nnd redoubts, reaching from Cooper river on the north to the Ashley river on the south. In addition to the other land apd 8?3 defences of Charleston, great credit is duo to its defenders for the eucrgy with which they have built and equipped two large iron clad rams, which are now lying at the wharf, and arc likely to be very prominently heard of if the lung threatened assault sdall fall upon the head of this " pestilent nest of sedition.' Three other similar iron clad rams are in an advanced stage of progress. It is hardly necessary to state that no thing has &s yet been done to vepajr the damage inflicted upon Charleston by the terrible fire which swept from river to river on December 12, 1861. From that moment until jhe present hour the fate of the city 1ms been so doubtful that it has not been thought worth while to built up, n order that as scpined at one time quite probable) the Yankees might destroy. But the fear ful havoc and devastation then inflicted upon the town, and which were at tho time tri umphantly pointed at by the iJorth as the work of incendiary negroes, are still awfully manifest and placo the fire of Charleston in tbe category of the great conflagrations of this century. There seems every reason to beljeve that, if the large building in which I am now writing the Mills House had caught, tho fire would have swept down to the battery, and consumed all tho richest and finest portions of the town.

"I like to 'tend weddings," said Mrs. Parting-' ton, as sho came back from one at church, and bung her shawl up, apd replaced the bonnet iu the long preserved bandbox ; " I like to see young people 'corns togethor with the promise to cherish qnd nourish each other.
