OH LOVE IN A HOGSHEAD.
"Thoyput everything on runners, wliilo
tiie snow lasts ; for it docs not tarry lung,
llitggy scats, carmgo tops, crockery seats
all arc in question. Ami I even saw
one of tho fiiict horscsin the city drawing
a hogshoad on wooden runners, in which
were seated a gentleman and lady. 'I hey
were a fine looking couple, and bnro off
tho palm for fast driving, as well a3 tho
moat ludicrous plciyh conveyance." Letter
from Chicago.
Ah, reader! and "thereby hangs a
talc."
Tt was a Xow Year's day in that far
famed city of tho AVust even the New
Year's day of '50. Sit ce Christmas, win
ter has set in, in a good old-fashincd
earnestness. Snow had fallen to the depth
of several inches, and, Icing firm and hard,
made excellent sleighing a rare thing in
the city.
Indeed, our wintors seem sadly degene
rated of late, bcinj much more mild and
free from snow, than tho dava of our fa
thers; perhaps tn accommodate thum to
our failing hoalth and strength; for this
latter fact h but too apparent.
let tins JNow loar.s day seemed moio
a typo of tho old time. It was cold, yet
not too osld, and tho slcighinc was excel
lent. Everybody that had a suitable con
veyance, or could got one, even any price,
was out enjoying tho rare roort: onlv the
more kceuly to bo enjoyed for its very
rarity. It was indeed a gala day; nnd
bright and beautiful ovcihcad, brighter
and more beautiful still in Iho human
hearts beating so joyously beneath.
barnct Hammond sat in his count no-
room, busily engaged in attending to the
rreoption of a largo quantity of goods, just
arrived. He was youmj yet ; but fast ris
ing in wealth and position. Born in tho
East, ho had brought with him all tho ha
bits of strict attention to business which
thcro generated. Whilo there was aught
of that to calm his attention, pleasure must
bo waived. Therefore, when ho did givo
a iloublo zeal. .Naturally warm hearted
and impulsive, nnd social withal, as such
persons must be, ho keenly enjoyed society.
And when ho entered it, lie wa? over a
welcome companion, both with his own
and opposito sex. And now, closing his
books with a look of satisfaction and relief,
ho determined to givo himself up to tho
pleasures of this annual gala day,
Wl,il l,C;r.A,3 I..
closed his cars and eyes to all clso ; but
now ho could not fail to hear tho unusual
stir in tho streets, and feel that whilo ho
had been engaged within dcors, all had
been mo ana commotion without. When
ho camo forth tho street presented a most
novel scene, A nioro rnoflv. ineoncrous
lot of vehicles it were not easy to imagine.
Suchlifo and hilarity aro always infectous,
ana earnest soon caugiit the spirit. 11c,
too, would join tho slcdgcrs ; but how 1
Ho inquired at Eoveral stables for a
sleigh, No ono to bo had. Yet ho was
not easily daunted, and, moreover, had an
unusual share of perseverance. ITo owned
ono of tho finest horses in tho city ; of that
ho was sure. Ho remembered, too, that
in a rctnoto part of tho stable, whero ho
nail usually Kept linn, ho had ono day no
ticed a pair of wooden runners. Ho would
sco if in somo way a convoyaneo could not
bo planned. His Yankee ingenuity must
bo brought to tho service.
uo soon reached tho stablo. Tho run
ners woro found, and in good crdcr. Hut
now for tho other part. A hogshead, that
for somo roason or other, had been swed
apart and nicely cleaned, stood bofo'ro him.
Instantly a part of it was upon tho runners.
In a few minutes a comfortablo scat was
added, aud ho was roady for a drive,
Hut now oroso another difficulty, un
tliought of beforo, No must have o com
paniona lady of course; olsq half Iho
Bjoymortl Would b lect Hut uho would
it bo t Who would bo seen, oven with him, i
in such a convoyaneo as that? Excuse'
his vanity, reader mine. Ho know ho
was a favorite. Indeed, ho could not help
knowing it. But tln3 was a special occa
sion, "All tho world" was out. Who
could ho find bravo enough to daro it? Ho
must sco.
There woro two or thrco young ladies
who had long claimed his special regard, '
aud he felt suro ho was not entirely indif
ferent to them. Ho had oven been obscrv 1
ing them of late, striving to learn tho truo I
character of each. This he found, as gen-'
tlenicu and ladies usually meet in tho city, !
rather a difficult matter. How ho yearned
to sco through tho false surroundings into
tho truo and inner lifo beneath 1 lie was
rather old fashioned in his notions, it must j
bo confessed; but ho did caro inoro for tho '
real tin u tho artificial moro lor tho mind
and heart than for tho outer covering
But how would it end ? Would he bo wiser
than his sex? It was indeed a difficult
question j but ho did not quite despair.
Ella Campbell had long been ono of tho
first in his esteem. But recently ho had
thought her vain and superficial, earing
moio for tho outer than tho inner man,
and had been cautious in his attentions to
her; Ho would test her now.
Driving briskly to tho door and throw
ing tho reins over his liorse, ho quickly
rang tho bell. A servant, at onco ushered
him into tho parlor, where sat tho lady of
his thoughts. Slio greeted him warmly ;
but on hoariug tho object of his visit and
tho uniqucjennvoyanco ho had.brought, sho
plead a previous engagement, and at once
excused herself, ,
Earnest Hammond was gifted with a
good share of penetration; and when not
previously blinded, read charjctcr well.
Now, instinctively fcclins how it was, ho
politely withdrew. And whilo ho rode
gaily away, Ella Campbell sat pouting in
tho room, unthought of and uncarcd for by
tho moving mass without.
Earnest's next visit was to the liouso of
Squire Heed. Hero ho had long been a
frequent and welcome visitor, and was al
vrnye received quito liko o:io of tho fami
ly,'' as Iho Squire often said, looking
knowingly at his two girl-), Charlotte and
Bella.
Charlotte was tho older and handsomer
of the two; and beauty is always attractive,
especially with tho men. Sho was tho fa
vorite, too, in society, But at times Ear
nest had turned from her to the gentle,
graceful Bo'la, with her puro heart, and
p'quont, innocent ways, almost with a feel
ing of lovo for tho latter.
Her's was indeed a character to study.
Timid and retiiiug when in tho prcsonco
of stranger, shr was yet singularly artless
and confiding with these sho best knew.
There was a dash of independence, too,
and a vein of rom neo in her heart, plea
sant and refreshing to meet. Sho was
graceful and pliant, it is truo, but ' there
was a character and strength there, also.
Though her sister might best please in a
crowd, she would be boiler known and
loved it homo.
All that Earnest felt, still, beauty fasci
nated him. Not that Bella was uly. Oh,
no. But sho was not beautiful cither ; at
least, save in tho loving eyes and hearts of
thoso who best know her. Earnest liked
them both. It was difficult indeed, to de
termine which was tho favorite.
As ho ncarcd tho door ho said to himself,
as ono often will, in cases of doubt "A
look or word shall decido between them.
If ono or both refuse to ride with me, it
fehall bo a sign that all is over. But if one
accepts why, then, who knows what may
conic of it? I am twenty-eight now; "old
enough," as my partner told mo yc.-terday,
" to bo married and have a homo of my
own," and so I am. Wo shall sco I
Two faces wcro at iho window as ho
drove up. Ono brightened visibly, and tho
other as visibly paled, whilo a mingled ex
pression ot scorn and disippointmcnt pass
ed over her features.
"Good morning, ladies, good morning,"
exclaimed he, as ho entered their presence.
I find myself in rather an awkward posi
tion just now, and need somo ono to help
mo out. I must have a drivo this morning,
yet I have been unable to obtain any con-
( vcyance save tno ono you saw as I drovo
I up, What bhall I do?" and ho looked to
(Juarlotto tor an answer.
"An awkward position, indeed 1" answer
ed sho. " You had belter drivo alone."
" But must I ?'' ho asked somewhat sor
rowfully, Bella looked up quickly; but sho did
not speak.
" Surely you do not think a lady would
bo scon in suoh a convoyaneo I" continued
Unarloltc, with a sliglt toss of her beauti
ful head.
Again Bella looked up, while a painful
flush suffused her check. Sho was borry
jherfcister had thus spot en sorry for her,
'grieved for Earnest. Sho felt suro that
jshc could not havo denied him that what-
ever ho should ask would not bo improper
or wrong. How then could her sister speak
thus?
j Charlotte noticed the expression, and
! half read its meaning. Sho did not much
I liko tho reproof it convoyed ; and turning
' to her sho said, somewhat scornfully :
" Perhaps my sister would go with you.
Will you, Bell (
" Will you, Bella ?' tho young man ro
pcatcd earnestly, as ho bent on her a
glanco which thrilled through- every part
of her being.
For a moment tho bloocl rushed oyer her
brow and ncok, tho next it recoded, and
the answerod gaily
"And why not, indeed I'
Bui will you go, Bella ' im asked
Earnest, tn that straight forward manner
which ever characterized him.
" I should liko it of all things I" answer
ed tho enthusiastic girl, forgcting tho emo
tion of tho moment-beforo.
" Hut remember how we aro to go," con
tinued Earnest, quickly.
" You will bo tho observed of all obser
vers," added Charlotte.
''And what of that?" oalled buck tho
delighted girl, as sho was half way up tho
stairs.
In a moment sho was ready ; and gaily
bidding her sister good-byo, sho was Boon
seated beside Earnest, and thoy drovo ra
pidly away.
Charlotte half repented her momentary
prido when sho saw tho tender glanco of
earnest, as lio placed tier earclully upon
tho scat, and drew closer tho folds of her
large, warm shawl, in which she had shown
tho good sense to wrap herself. But it was
too lato now ; so taking a book sho pro
pared to spend tho morning alone. In tho
mcantimo Earnest and Delia had joined
tho motly throng now moving so rapidly
through the city.
Now thoy diovo dowu close to tho wa
ter's edge, where, far as tho eye could
roach, ono saw nothing but tho clear, blue
waters nf tho lake, with its masts aud sails,
making ono think ho wcro upon the Atlan
tic coas, instead of so many miles in tho
interior. Annn they looked upon tho wido
spreading prairio now puro and whito with
Iho new fallen snow, and stretching far
away till it was lost where earth and sky
seemed to meet. Then ag-iin they were
passing through tho wido and level streets
of tho city,
Oh 1 there is lifo and exhilaration in
giving one's self up to tho enjoyment of
tho hour ! Nature is a good mother to us
all; and when wo givo ourselves into her
keeping, fIio will over till tho heart with
joy and gladness. Would that more such
exorcises nv ro such out-ot-door exorcises
wcro freely enjoyed by all I This shut
ting one's self up so completely within
doors, as somo do in winter, is enough to
drivo all tho rosses from tho check,
all joy and gladness from tho eye, and nil
freshness from tho heart, making ono old
beforo his timo,
Tho spell of tho hour was upon them ;
as thoy sped merrily along; Earnest
felt his heart warm more and more toward
tho pure and artless girl by his side.
He had known her long ho had known
her well ; and sho had over seemed the
same ingeuius, truthful and g:od. Ho
wandered how, even for a moment, ho had
over thought of another ; for sho stomed to
him, thco, all that his heart could over wish
or desire. But could sho over be bis ? or
was sho destined for another ? The
thought initio him desperate. Ho could
not endure it for a moment. Tho question
must bo decides at onco, and with him, to
resolve was to act.
They h id been talking gaily of the scene
around them or Bella had been talking,
ho listening, for amid tho multitude of ve
hicles in the street each had to attend pret
ty carefully to his own ; when turning to
htr with another of theso glances which
thrilled thromjh every fibro of her being,
ho said, and his voice was low and earnest
a ho spoke.
"Bclia, 1 am a business man, and shall
do up things in a business fashion. I lovo
you. Will you be my wilfe ?
Tho young girl looked up astonished.
Sho had' long liked him liked him bettor
than any other on earth ; but she had nev
er dreamed of being his wife. He was so
much older, so much wiser than sho for
sho was scarce eighteen, and in heart a
very child why did ho not tako her sis
ter? Sho could not comprehend it all;
and almost doubted if sho heard aright.
For many moments she did not reply.
Earnest observed her closely, and roid half
in her faeo tho unuttcrcd thought She
was about t) speak, when tho wuolo ludi
crousness laughed outright. It wis his
turn now to look astonished.
" Why Bella, what is tho matter? " ho
soou asked, somewhat hurt.
" Only think 1 making lovo in a hogs
head ! " laughed tho niisehicvtius girl, i
moro merrily than beforo. "Who cverj
heard of such a thing!" and this time.
Earnest joined her even at his own ex-1
pense.
" Well, well, no matter where," contin.
ued he, taking tho little hand that lay fur .
a moment outside her shawl. ''Do you'
lovo mo, Bella ? and will you bo my wife ?
Answer mo truly ; uiU you be mine f '''
"Yes, Earnest, yesl but I must laugh,
ncvci tholes.?. Tho seeno is so entirely and ;
wholly ludicrous. Quito a now order of

Tho Polico Outdono by a South
ern Lady.
A few days since somo unknown persons
entered a fashionable boarding house, near
SumniQr street, kept by Mrs. M., making
assessments of such articles as thoy liked
best, and left tho plaoo unseen aud unharm
ed, Among tho boarders whoso goods and
chattels wcro thus unceremoniously taken
away, was Miss II.. a fair daughter of tho
Sunny South, who happened to bo spending
tho winter in tho City of Notions. Hcrl
loss consisted of a beautiful velvet hat.
As soon as tho theft was discovered tho
polico wcro consulted, and every thing done
to remove tho mystery, but all to uo pur
pose. As Miss n., was walking.Washington st.,
ono of the pleasantcst days last week, ima
gin her surpriso in passing a large and mns.
culino looking woman, dressed in tho
height of fashion, with hoops and crinoline,
velvet hat which sho had lost. Wiiat was
to bo done ? Every step was taking tho
bonnet fmther from its owner, who was
alono and a stranger in tho city. It did
not take her long to decide.
Sho started in tho same direction, and
was soon alongside of the velvet hat.
"Where do you reside, madam I"
" In Court," was tho reply.
"Aro vou going home ?"
" I am."
'Go on, and don't let mo hinder you.
And onward they walked, now to the
right and now to tho loft. At length thoy
entered a dark alloy, and after passing sev
eral dismal abodes thoy halted at a door.
"Do you live here?''
"I do upon tho second floor."
"Go up then, for 1 have business with
you."
Thoy entered. After going up two
flights ot stairs they reached njroomin which
thoy found five women. Thoy entered the
room, and hero our heroine mado known
her business. Posting herself beside the
door, with a calm but defiant look, she de
manded of tho woman lo know whero she
obtained the velvet hat, the shawl, and the
basquo upon her person."
"I bought them," was tho reply.
"No, you did not; thoy wcro stolen,
and now tako them off immediately."
Had a bombshell exploded in tho room,
tho confusion could not havo been grcitcr.
Hut great as it was, it did not intimidate
tho owner of tho velvet hat in the least de
gree. It only changed tho happy aud fas
cinating look of a most beautiful face to tho
unconquered look if a Cromwell.
"Now bo quiet and own up, and bring
forward tho stolen poods, for it will bo bet
tor for you. Now I havo found tho goods
and tho thief, no doubt, I am going for an
offiecn See that none of you lcavo the
room or disturb nu articlo whilo I am
gone."
"Whilo descending tho staiis our hero
ine, espied a doctor on his way lo visit tho
sick, and asked his assistance. "I have,"
said she, "found somo stolen property, and
havo it socuro in this house; will you call
an officer to as-Ut mo in removing it?"
Tho doctor readily assented, and whilo ho
sought for policemen, sho still guarded her
trust. At length tho doctor, with four
policemen, arrived, when our heroine trans
ferred tho custody of both persons and
property to tho officers of tho law. Tho
remainder of tho stolen property was soon
found, and tho lady relieved of her bor
rowed plumago was provided with rooms
in tho Cambridge street jail, whero sho still
remains, waiting tho sentence of tho law.

A Lesson for Boys.
One of tho wealthiest merchants of Now
York city tells us how he commenced busi
ness :
'I entered a sloro and asked if a clerk
was not wanted. "No," in a rough tone
was tho answer, all being too busy to both-
cr with mo when I reflected that if thoy
did not want a clerk, they might want a
laborer ; but I was dressed too fine for tint.
I wont to my lcdgings put on a rough garb,
and went into tuc samo store and demand
cd if they wanted a porter, and again, "No
sir," was the response when 1 claimed in
despair, almost, "A laborer ? Sir, I will
work at any wages. Wages is not my ob
ject. I n'Ut havo employment, and I
want to bo useful in business. ' Theso last
words attracted their attention ; and in the
cud I was hired as a laborer in tho base
ment and sub-cellar at a very low pay,
scarcely enough to keep body and soul to
gether. In tho bas:mcnt and sub-cellar I
soon attracted tho attention of tho counting
houso and chief clerk. I saved enough for
my employers, in little things wasted, to
pay my wages ton times over, and thoy
soon lound it out. I did not let any
body about committ potty larcenies, would
remonstrato and rcmonsfranco would not
do.
"If I was wanted at thrco A. 51., I never
growled, but told everybody to go homo,
''and I will sco that evcrythlna is jisht."
I loaded off at day-break packages for the
morning boats, or carried them myself. In
short, I soon became indi'ponsiblo to my
employer?, and roso and rose until I .be

Seduction and Suicide.
A very sad case of seduction and suicide
is narrated in tho Cincinnati papers as
having developed itself on Saturday, March
tho 7th, It appears that a German
named Kaiser, who kept a moat storo in
Vine street, near Allison, had married
fourteen years ago in Germany, nnd recent

ced a successful businos there his family
consisting of a wife and ono female child.
His wife was known as an apparently
modest, quiet, hard working woman, well
esteemed by all who knew her. About
two months ago, Mr. Kaiser being sick,
hiswifetook charge of tho shop, and Mr.
K. coming down stairs one evening, was
astonished on delecting his wifo aud a man
named Glossner, who kept a liquor store
near, m an illicit amour, lie urovo Clots
ncr out, and tho seducer escaped. When
Mr. K. returned to his shop ho found it
closed and his wifo gono. Sho was never
suon alive again, aud was supposed to bo
concealed somowhoro. Tho villain who
seduced her, rather gloried in his" crime.
Kaiser sadly pursued hia business, and
applied for a divorce. On Saturday week
whon the ico broke in the Miami canal, the
dead body ot a woman was revealed hor
ribly dishgured.
It proved to bo thct of

Caution to Lovors.
A young gentleman residing in
tho
neighborhood of Richmond, had occasion,
a short timo since, to drive his pretty cousin
i'anny down to Windsor in a gig. Littlo
Charlie, a brother of Fanny's, accompanied
and sat betweon thorn in tho gig; but as ho
was only fivo or six years ot aire, was con
sidered nobody. Unfortunately, however,
tho urchin had got a now hat that very
day, of which ho was exceedingly proud.
landing, on his arrival at Windsor, that it
had sustainod somo injury during tho jour
ney, he rushed to his mamma to complain.
" L declare, mamma," he cried, " I'll never
ride in a gig between sister Fanny and
cousin George again."
"Why so, my dear?" inquired mamma.
"Because," he replied, "they'vo crushed
my new hat all to pieces, with leauing over
to kiss each other, all tho way from Rich
mond." " I Mark only the Hours that
