THURSDAY MORNING, MAY V8. l*#7^ • HOW SOME PEOPLE MARRY AND LIVE. 4 A young mao meets a pretty face in the ^ ball room, fall® in to™ with **» cc,urt8 1 marries it, goes to housekeeping with it, and ' boasts of haring a home and a wile to grace |; it The chances are nine to one he has j neither. Her pretty face gets to he an old j stcrv or becomes faded, or freckled, or frot-| ted; and as the face was all he "anted a. 1 j; he paid attention to, and all he sat up witn, j ( all he bargained for, all he swore to love, ; honor, and protect, he gets sick of his trade, j , knows a dozen faces which he !>kes beltei, j, gives up staying at home of evenings con- j Holes himself with cigars, oysters, and H»l.cs j j and looks upoo his home as a very indinoreut ; | boarding-house. A tamily of children grow , up about him ; but neither be nor his “lace (< know aoy thing about training them, ho they j come up helter skelter ; made toys ot when | babies, dolls when boys and girls, drudges when young men and women: anil so passes , ■year after year, and not one quiet, happy, homely hour is kuown throughout the entire household. . ..; Another young man becomes enamored ot a “fortune.” He waits upon it to parties, dances the polka with it, exchanges Odkt do a a with it. pops the question to it, gets j “yes” from it, takes it to the parson s, weds it, calls it “wife,” curries it home, sets up an establishment with it, introduces it to his friends, and says (poor fellow .) that he too ja married, and has got a home. It s lalse. J He is not married, and has no home ; and tie j soon buds it out. lie is in the wrong box, but it is too late to get out of it. He might as well hope to escape from bis coffin.— Friends congratulate him, and he has to grin and bear it. They praise the house, the j furniture, the oradle, the new Bible, the new baby, and then bid the “fortune” and he \ who husbands it good morning ! As if he \ bad known a good morning since he and that glided fortune were falsely declared to be one! ^ 3 . Take another case. A young lady is smit ten with a pair of whiskers. Curled hair never before had such charms. She sets her cap for them; they take. The delighted whisker* make an offer, proffering themselves both in exohange for one heart, 'lbe dear j miss is overcome with magnanimity, closes j the bargain, carries home the prize, shows j it to pa and Ufa, calls herself engaged to it, thinks there never was such a pair of whis kers before, and in a few weeks they are mar ried. Married ! yes, the world calls it so, and we will: What is the result! A short honeymoon, and then they unluckily discov er that they are as unlike as chalk and cheese, and not to be made one, though all j thA nriAKtrt in Christendom pronounce it so. — f(m llucen Palladium. _ _ ___ CF We are authorized to announce Elgar Snowden as a candidate tor Congress, trom the Seventh Congressional District. ap 20—dtt \p~V.

The charter of this Company offers more fa vorable advantages to the farmer and others, than any other company chartered in the Stare, by insuring with or without a premium note.— It the applicant prefer, he can pay the lull amount of the premium in cash, or by effecting a ea>h insurance for two years, the insured saves one eighth of the amount he would otherwise have . i__. i__.*__u...._i __ IU [laj . 01 uy unoiiim^ « mcu»vr», uuu » small premium note, the insured saves nearly one ball ot the amount charged by Stock Compa nies, when insuring from year to year. This is the advantage resulting from the combination ol THE CASH AND MUTUAL PRINCIPLE. This company commenced issuing Policies against loss or damage by lire, on the 10th of March, 1854, since which time over thirty-live hundfed persons have insured and become mem bers of the Company. Having trebled our bu sines* during the p4«t year, w e feel grateful loi the liberal patronage bestowed upon the Compa ny thus far, and for its Battering prospects of future usefulness. The Directors hope and be lieve that by prudence, caution and a rigid sys tem of economy, they will establish lor ibis Company a reputation for cheapness and saiefy, not surpassed by any Company in the U.
