Wl. il. t i,.l. ., Mr
' . . , . . w v i
.contrived ncam to secure Mr. Westbury's
Sho saw that ho purposely avoided
her, whether from now born indifference,
or principle, sho could not detenmno; but
having boasted to quito a number of her
confidential friends of his passion for her
self, and tho reluctance with which ho had
cnmplicd, with his father's command to
marry Julia, who hud mado tho most in
dclirato advances sho resolved, if art or
mana-uvcring could accomplish it, to main
tain tho appearance of power over him,
From tho first sho exulted in her conquest
I of Mr. Wcslbury's heart, Sho admired
bis person; his fortuno sho loved; and
bitter was her mortification, unbounded
her displeasure, when Lis baud was bo
stowed on another, Tomake it appear
that he still loved her ; to wring the heart
of his wilo, and detract from her character
were now the main springs of her actions
whenever sho met them, Tho sight of
Julia's pearls, which sho thought should
have been (her own, awakened, on thi3
evening, peculiarly hitter fccliugs. Tho
hand tho Jioart even of Mr. Wcatbury
wcro trifles, when compared with such
beautiful ornaments, except as they were
the medium through which tho latter were
to bo obtained.
A ten minutes conversation with her
ctdcvHDt lnvcr wns all her art could ac
complish dur.ng the cveuing at Mrs.T 's,
until sho secured his arm on going out.
In tho entry they were dct:iitiul by tho
crowd nt the door, and louking round, they
saw Mrs, Wcstbury, together with Mr. and
Mrs. liveleth, csamining a busi of Gen.
Lafayette, which stood on n pedestal, tear
tho loot of the staircase. "With a unilo on
her beautiful leaturcs, which wcro very
ligntly sofiencd, a compound expression
of scorn and nialigiity, Mi33 Eldou said
" Iteally, Mrs. Wetthury has mado a
conquest I Mr. Uvelcth ii divotcd in his
attentions, and enthusiastic in his cucomi
urns ! l)ii you not begin to bo jealom ?"
".Not in tho least,'1 Mr. Wcstbury re-
plied. " The attentions and approbation
of such a man os Mr. Kveleth, aro an honor
to any lady; and Mrs. AVcstbury's rigid
sense of virtuo and propriety will provcut
her ever receiving iniprop r attentions,
i-hould any ono bo disposed to offer thorn.
She has too muih delicacy and refinement
to court tho attentions even of her own
husband, much less Jtoso of the husband
of another !"
Miss Eldon was stung with mortification,
and dropping her bead, that her ftco might
bo concealed by hor hood, sho said, in a
voieo trcmubius with conflicting passions
" How little did I ever expect to hoar
Frederic Wcstbury speak to mc in a severe
"Severe! Maria Miss Eldon? Does
common justice ti Mrs. Wcstbury sound
harshly in your car!"
" Certainly not but your tono your
manner aro not what thoy were, and I
h"pcd that no circumstances, no new cn
garments, would pravont your retaining
a kindly feeling towards one whom," sho
" Ono whom I onoo loved," (aid Mr
Wcstbury, finishing tho sentenco for her
" Yes, you well know that 1 onco loved
Oncot" interrupted Miss Eldon.
" Hut this is man's lidolity !"
"Miss Eldon, you ai-tonjsh mc," Eaid
Mr. Wcstbury. " I am married ; my wife
commands roy respect nay, my aspira1
tion; and duty, honor, everything com
mands that all former ties, however tondcr.
should bo broken. Our happiness, our
respectability, commands iut henceforth
wo bo only common acquaintance?."
' Bo it so, farewell !' said Miss Eldon

thoy at first excited ! Docs sho wish to

1. i 1 ...
The crowd nt tho door wns by this tirn
ncarlyfdispcrsed, and Mr. Wcstbury, ad
vancing to tho trio that still remained near
tho bust, drew bis wifo's arm within his,
and bidding Mr. and Mrs. Evelctb"good
night," led her lo their carriage.
" How havo you enjoyed yourself this
evening!" Mr. Wcstbury inquired, as soon
as the carriogo door was closed, and tho
coachman had mounted his box-
" Quite as well as I over do in scenes of
similar character," Julia answered.
" Do you not then relish sooicty !"
" Not very wellin such largo masses,"
said JuUa. To my apprehension, very
large parties counteract tho purpose for
which social fccliugs wcro implanted with
in us."
' Then you disapprove, tsjwcll as dis
relish them!" said Mr. Wcstbury,
" I fear they arc not quito innocent,"
said Julia. " So far as my observation
has extended, they havo little tendency to
incroaso bonovolcnco, or any of tho finer
feelings of tho heart, I havo often feorod,
that vanity and thirst for admiration, wore
tho causes that draw together ono half of
tho crowd ; and a vulgar lovo of luxuries
tho other." ,
" These causes surely do net influenco
all those who, bttend largo assemblies,"
said Mr. Wcstbury. " Such persons as
Mr. and Mrs. Evelcth, for instance, ato
entirely abnvc them."
"Undoubtedly," said Julia. "Still I
telicvo the rulo as general as any other."
" Does not tho elegant and instructive
conversation ojf such a man ss Mr. Evelcth
rccv'utilo you to tho crowd?" Mr.Westbury
" Certaiuly noV'oaidj Julia. " How
mu'h nioro highly such conversation would
bo enjoyed how much Igrcater benefit
derived., from it, in a'sma'l circle. Artifi
cial dclioacy and refinement artificial
fceliug artificial good naturu artificial
friendship, aro tho usual compound that
make largo companies? Had Mr. m.d
Mrs. Evcleth fpent this ovening with us, in
our quiet parlor, how much greater would
havo been the enjoyment! h wmuch moro
rofitablo tho time might ihavu been occu
" It might," said Mr. Wcstbury. "Mr
Ivelcth.has great colloquial powers. His
conversation is at once brilliant and in
structive. I know no gentleman who
equals him in this particular,
" I cannot say quite so much os that,"
said Julia, " though ho ceitainly converses
uncommonly well."
" Who can you name that is his equal!"
tsked Mr. Wcstbury.
Julia hcsila'cd a little, and blushed a
great deal, though her blushes were unseen,
ai sho said " In couvers.tional powers, .1
think my present companion is very rarely
f ccr excelled. And why," sho added,
'such gentlemen should mingle in crowds,
where their talents aro in a great measure
lost, .instead of meeting in select circles,
where thoy could Iiud congenial minds-
minds, nt least, in somo degree capablo of
appreciating them, I cannot conceive.
But I Eupposo my ideas of rational enjoy.
ment, of clegaut society aro very singular."
Sho stopped short, fearing sho was saying
too much, but Mr.Westbury requested her
to proceed. After a minute's hositation
sho said
"I thitk tho crowds! drawing room
should bo abandoned to thoso who nro
capable of no higher enjoyment than gos
sip, nonsenso, flirtation, and eating oysters,
confections and creams and that people
of talent, education, principle, and refine
ment, should ttssociato freely in small cir
cles, and with littlo ceremony. Io such
kind of intercourse, new friendships would
bo formed, and old ones ccmcntod, the
mind and heart would bo improved, and
tho demons of envy nnd destruction ex
eluded. After an evening spent in such a
circle, tho. monitor within would bo at
pcaco, and the blessing and protection of
Heaven could bo sought, within a feeling
of sharao and self-condemnation."
" Then your ronscienco is really at war
with largo parties 1" siid Mr. Wcstbury.
" I cannot deny that it is," Julia an
swered. "Impcllod by oiroumstanccs, I
havo Btriven to think they might somotimes
bo innocently attended, aud perhaps they ! destroy itt '
may; but I confess that tho rcnroacb.es of "1 don't know," said Mrs. Cunningham,

Mr. Wcstbury mide no reply, for at that
moment tho carriage stopped at their own
door, -and tho subject was not again re
sumed. F.Torv nartv was suro to procuro for
. -
Mrs, Westbury tho favor of a call from
Mrs. Cunningham. On tho following
morning, at as early an hour as etiquctto
would allow, sho made her appearance
"I could not stay away this morning,

so voxed. and so hurt, that I must havo tho
sympathy of somo friendly heart; and you
aro a friend to overy ono especially when
in trouble."
"Whattroubles you, Mrs. Cunningham!'
Mrs. Wcstbury inquired.
"You rccclloot,"said Mrs, Cunmngham,
"what I said to you last night about Mr.
Cunningham's indisposition. Well, as soon
as I cot home. I ran un stairs, of course,
you know, to.seo how ho was, expectingto
find him abed" and asleep. Judge how I ,
felt, when I found my bod ast left it, and i
no husband in tho shamber. I flow down
stairs, and scarched-every room for him, ,
but in vain. I then rang for Foggy, and ,
asked "if sho knew where Mr. Cunning-
ham was." 'La, ma'am,' said sho, Tin

I thought ho had altcrod bis mind, and was
going to Mrs. T 's. I dismissed tho

"Will you follow my advice, my dear

who tru'y pitied her distress, much as sho
blamed her.

"And is cot that hard!" said Mrs.
Cunningham. "Why should ho not con

Why must men always have their own

"That point it is not worth while to dis

"I havo not tho has doubt," said Mrs.
Wcstbury, that would you yield to Mr.
Cunningham's wishes would you let him
see that you caro more about pleasing him
than yourself, ho would cheerfully, and
frequently, porhaps, accommodate himself
to your taste. Few mon will bear being
driven, and they would bo objects of our
contempt if they would, for authority is
divinely delegated to them ; but there aro
few who havo not generosity enough to
tako ploasuro in gratifying tho wifo, who
evidently strives to meet his wishes, and is
willing to sacrifico hor own pleasures, that
sho may promoto his happiness,"
"But I can't sec," said Mrs. Cunning
ham, 'why my happiness is not of as much
consequent b my husband a. 1 can t sco
why all sacrifice should bo on my sido !"
"Do you not perceive," said Mrs. West
bury," "that tho sacrifices you mako aro

must bo in subjection to her own husband.
Ho may not always bo rcasonablo, but i-ho
cannot 'usurp authority' without at onco

Mrs. Cunningham, ruminate upon it, and '

For somo timo things wont on very calm
ly with Julia. 'I hough thero was nothing
tender, or oven affectionate in tho manner
of her husband, there was a gradual altera

ulate her to exertion. Ho spent more and
moro of his leisuro time at home, and was
at least becoming reconciled to her socie

partially adopted, aud Mr. Wcstbury en
joyed it highly. Mr. and Mrs. Evcleth,
and a few other friends of congenial minds,
had boon invited to drop in occasionally
without cercmnny ; tho invitation had beon
complied with, and Mr. Wcstbury and
Julia had returned a few visits of this kind.
"But after a while, tbis faint gleam of
sunshino began to fade away. A eloud of

brow, he passed less of his timo at home,
till at length Julia scarcely saw him, ex

thought Julia. "Am I tho came! is Miss
Eldon! or is it some perplexity in his af
fairs!" Sho longed to inquire. If she
had displeased him, bho wished to correct
whatever had given disploasurc. If liirf
sadness wes in any way connected with
Miss Eldon, of course sho could not in any
way interfere ; but if it originated in any
cause foreign to either, sho urdcnily de
sired to offer her sympathy, and sharo his
sorrows. Day after day passed, without
producing any favorable ch:ingc,nnd Julia's

very singular phenomenon, which was
wincssed on Saturday last, and wbichcauscd
tho death of two persons :
"During tho aftcrnof-n, t funnel-shaped
moving body of a nebulous character, apt
poared at n point over Utica, moving
rapidly along with a humming sound. It
struck the ground noor tho dwelling of a
Mr. Root, in Dcerfield, tearing down a
fenco or two, and passing on, gradually
settling lower and lower; At last, having
reached n point somo fivo miles in a north
easterly direction from this city, near tho
dwelling of Mr. Nathan Uudlong, in Schuy
ler, it mado a decent upon bis barn, ripped
it up, and scattering it to tho winds. Then
passing on, tearing up trees, fences and
outhouses in its terrible ooursc, it finally
struck iho dwelling of Mr. John Warren,
which was lifted from its stono foundation,
carried q distanoo of somo fifteen feet
through tho air, and dashed in splinters
uprn the ground, leaving a clean plaof
grass between the place whero it had stood
and tho pile of rubbish," ,
" In tho houso wcro a family of six
parents and children, Mr. Warren, seeing
tho terriblo object rushing down upon him,
tearing up trees and fences in its onward
coursc,and buzzing like a thousand hornets'
nests combined, called upon his wifo and
childcrn instantly to aocompany him to tho
collar, and, suiting tho action of tho word,
seized two of the children and leaped down
tho stairway. Tho wifo essayed to follow,
but her fooistcp3 were tardy ; sho was a
moment an instant too lato; tho engine
of distruction lore the building up, carrying
herself and child, together with a littlo son
who was behind her, with it. Tho husband
had but time to seo hor ascend with tho
building that toro away from abovo him,
and then ho stood exposed to tho day, in
his open collar. Ho went to view tho ruin
of his home ; it was ccujplcfb. Hero lay
tho dead and nudo body of his wife, tho
destroying power having stripped the clo
thing from her person ; hero lay hi3 son
covered with blood, asd ecnslcss ; and, just
beyond, his dwelling lay ono such mass of
destruction as probably never was beheld
beforo. Broken and splintered bedsteads,
cradles, tables, pots, kettles, chairs, boxes,
trunks, crockery, tin ware, hate, clothes,
s oves, bottles, bricks, plaster, clocks, beams,
stones, shingles, and endless et cctcras,lay
crushed and crumbled in ono heap beforo
"Next, in tho duo southeasterly) lino of
its courso, it uprooted several largo trees,
scattered tho fence, crossed the road and
demolished a largo tarn, belonging to Mr.
John M, Budlong. This building was of
recent and very substantial building, and

largo timbers about tho fields at a distance
