Last Honrs of a Single Gentleman. This morninj,', November 11th at halfpast eleven o'clock pi ecisly, an unfortunate young man, Mr. Edward pinkney, underwcnl the extreme penalty of infatuation, by expiating his attachment to Mttry Ann Gale, in front of. the nltar railings of Su Mary's Church, Is lington." : ' " ' " It will b in the recollection of nil those friends of the pnrty who were at Jones' party nlBiixton, two years ago, that Mr. -Pinkney was there and then at hist introduced to Maty Gule to whom he instantly begi n to direct particular attentions dancing with her no less than six sets that evening, and handing her tilings at. supper in the most devoted man ner. ... From that pet iod commenced the inti macy between them which terminated in this morning's catastrophe. ' Poor Pinkney had barely nttained his twen-ty-fighlh year; but there is no belief that but for reasons of a peculiarly nature his single life wo'ttlil have come earlier to an untimely end. A change for the better.however, hav ing occurred in his circumstance, the young lady's friends were induced to sanction his addresses, and thus become ascessories to the course for which he has juU suffered. . - The unhappy young man passed the last night of his bachelor existence in lits solitary chamber. iFrtim ha'f-pasl-eight to ten he was engnged in writing : letters. ; Shortly after, his j'ouno-er bi other Henry, knocked at the door, when the doomed I outh told him to come in On being asked when be meant to go to bed, he replied "not yet Ihe uues- tioti was then put to him how he thought he ouUI sleep? lo which he answered ; "I con t know." He then expressed his desire for a cigar and a glass of grog. His brother, who sal down nnd partook of the like rt-freshment now demanded if he would take any thing more that night. ; He said "nothing," in a firm voice. His affectionate brother then rose to take his leave, when the devoted one considerately advised him to take' care of him self. . -..-: - : Precisly nt a qtinrter of n minute to seven in ihe morning.the victim of Cupid having been called according to his desire, he arose and promptly dressed himself. He had Ihe self contml to shave himsi'lf without the slightest intntT : fr not even a scratch itpon his chirs appeared after the operation... It would seem he devoted a longer time than usual nt hu toilet. - The wretched man wins attired "in n light blue dressed cont, with frosted buttons, while vest and nankeen, trowsers, with patent boots. He wore round his neck a varteirnted satin scarf, which partly concealed the Corrazzo of the bosom. In front of the scarf was inserted a breastpin ot conspicuous dimensions. . Having descended the staircase with n quick step, he entered Ihe apartment where his brother and n few friends awaited him. He then shook hands cordially with all" present "Very -well :" and to the further demnndas to the state of his mind he said that he "lolt hap- vr" . . ... - 1.,-, One of the partv hereupon sttrrested that it would he ns well to take something before the melancholy ceremony wns pone through, nnd he exclaimed with some emphnsis, 'decid edly. Breakfast was accordingly served, when he ate a French roll, a hirers round tonst two sausfisres, nnd three new laid egs;s, which he washed down with three great breakfast enps of tea. :: In reply to an expression of as tonishment, on the part of the person present, he declared that he had never felt heartier in his life. " . Having inquired the time, and ascertained that it was ten minutes of eleven, he remark ed that it would soon be over. His brother then inquired if he could do anything for him ; when he said he would take a glass of ale. Having drank this he srpearcd to be satisfied. The fatal moment now nppronching, be de voted the remaining portion of his time to dis tributing those little articles he would no lon ger want. To one he gave his cigar case; to another his tobacco-stoper, and charged his brother Henry wilh his latch key, with instruc lions lo deliver it, after nil was over, with due solemnily to the landlady. - The clock at length struck eleven, nnd at the same mwrr.ent he was informed that a cab was at the door. He merely said "Torn ready," and allowed himself to be conducted lo the vehicle, into which he got with his brother, his friends following on behind in others. - Arrived at the tragical spot, a short but an xious deliiy of some seconds, took place, after which they were joined by the lady find her friends. Little was said oil either side, but Miss Gale, with customary decurum, shed tears. Pinkney endeavored to preserve de corum, but a slight twmg in I113 mouth and eyebrows, proclaimed his inward agitation. AH necessary preliminaries having now been settled and the prescribed melancholy formalities gone through the usual question put "tt nt tnon nave this woman to be thy wife?" 'I will." , He. then put the fatal ring on Miss Gale's hnger.-the hymeneal noose was adjusted, and " ,tne poor fellow was launched into matrimony Remarkable instance of Good For- ...... ttttlO.;'.. ; We exact the following little story from Miss Bremer's 'Northern Loves and Legends:' "Certainly, you have observed how strang ely, sometimes, the clouds, at morning and evening, groud themselves round the sun, and are lighted up by it, nad you have" thought sometimes 'If this should be represented in printing, people would say, "it , is unnatural, it is not true!' So even is human life. We often find events,' looking,; when related or described in books, even mnnatural, , and ; yet are perfectly true to reality, -to nature, though not every day nature. For example, if any one should tell that, once, 'a first kiss was given by -a Jyoung modest ' lady publicly and in a public square, to a young man that she saw for the first time, certainly all young ladies and old ladies, and young gentlemen and old gentlemen, would wilh one voice call on. 'It is not true ; it impossible.' Well, I entreat your attention to tire following- littlo story, for whoso truth and reality 1 will be responsible:, Story of a Kiss. In the Ur.iversaty of Upsala in Sweden, lived a young student, a lonely youth, with a great love for studies and without means of pursuing them. Ilo was poor and without connections. Still he studied on, living in great poverty, but keeping up a cheerful heart, and trying not to look to the future which looked so grimly nt him. His good humor and good qualities made him beloved by his young comrades. Once he was stand ing with some of them in the great square of Upsalti, prating away an hour of leisure, when the attention of the young men became arrested by a very young aud elegant lady who, nt the side of an elder one, walked slow ly over to the plaee. ' It was the daughter of the Governor of Upland, residing in the city, and the lady with her was her governess. She was generally known for her beauty end for her goodness and gentleness of 'charac ter, and was looked upon with great admiration by the students. As the young men now stood silently gazing at her, as she passed on like a graceful vision, one of them exclaimed : 'Well it would be worth something to have n kiss from such a pretty mouth V . The poor student, the hero of our story, who was looking intently , at that pure and angelic face exclaimed as if by inspiration Well I think I conld have it.' 'What!' cried, his friends in n chorus, 'are you crazy ? Do you know her?' etc 'Not at all,' he answered ; 'but 1 Hunk she would kiss me, just now, if . 1 asked her.' 'What! in this place, before all our eyes?' 'In this place, before your eyes?' 'freely " 'rreely. 'Well, 11 she will give you a kiss in that manner.I will give you a thousand dollars!' 'And I!' And I cried three or four others, for it happened that several rich young men were in the group.anc bets ran high on so improvable an event, aud the challenge was made and received m less time than we take torelate it. : ... Our hero my authority tells not wether he was handsome or plain I have my' peculiar reasons for believing that he was rather plain but singularly good looking at the same time our hero walked ' off to meet the young lady. He bowed to her and said : 'My lady (min froleen,) my fortune is 1 in you hand. She looked nt him in astonishment, but arrest ed her steps. He proceeded to state his name and condition, his aspirations, and related simply- and - truly what had just passed between him nnd his companions. The young lady listened . attentively, and when he had ceased to speak, she said, blushing,but with great sweetness: "If by so little a thing so much good could be effected, it would be very foolish in me to refuse your request' and she kissed the young man publicly in the open square. - Next day the young student was sent for by the Governor. He wanted to see the young man who dared to ask a kiss of his daughter in that way.and whom she had con sented to kiss so. He received him with a sev ere and scrutinizing brow,but,after an hour's conversation was so pleased with him, that he offered him to dine at his table during the course of his studies at Upsala. - v . Our young friend now pursued his stndies in a manner which soon made him the most promising scholar at the University. Three years were not passed after the day of first kiss, when the young man was allowed to give a second one to the lovely daughter of ihe Governor, as his betrothed bride. : . He became, later, one of the grentcst scholars in Sweden, and much respected for his character. His will endure "forever among the works of science, nnd from this happy un ion sprang a family well know n in Sweden in the present day, and whose wealth of fortune and high position in society aie regarded as small things, compared with its wcal'.h and goodness of love." Thrilling Incident. : On Tuesday last, during the height of. the storm, a washer -woman residing in the base ment of a house, corner of London and De catur streets, East Roston, went to another section of that pnrt of the city, to do some work, leaving behind her an infant nnd another child only (bur years of age, whom she locked in her room. . About halfpast 11 o'clock, baring finished her work, she started for home, and in going along Liverpool street she found the tide so high that she could go no further. Turning into London street, she found her passage in that direction also impeded by the high wa ter. ' ' Her anxiety for the safely of her little ones now became great in the extreme, and ob serving two men paddling about in a boat, she made known to : them her situation. They took her on board and rowed to her house, which they found surrounded wilh the rising water, nnd with all possible haste, they broke open the door of the basement, where they found the iwo children safe in the cradle, the eldest sitting up in one end, and the infant ly ing down in the other. The feelings of the mother can better be imagined than described, when it is known that the cradle was floating on the ' water, which had filled the room to within less than two feet of the ceiling. Journal. What Ear-kings Ibdicite. The custom of wnaring ear-rings is said to have originated in this way 'Originally among the Hebrews Arabs, and otter nations, the ears of the: ser vant to hearken to the command of his master Rings were nfterwatd invented, to denote the perpetuity of his bonds, as the servants fore- evor. Thus, ear-rings were' the badge of slavery. ' . Eondon Living. . t . As the present . 6eason will, see ten times the. number of Americans in London that were ever there before, at the same time, the following extracts from a letter to the New York- Commercial Advertiser, will be read wilh interest :: .. ,., ,.; :. ,... , . .There can be no doubt that to : a stranger London life is almost alwars expensive,, and especially to an American, If any one asks wuy to an American more than to a french man, Italian or Prussian, I can only say, that while each, of the latter expect to live in Lon don, and every where else, according to the habits ot Jiteol his class, an American has no: class except the very ' highest, knows no su. perior not even in ,tbe highest Duke of Eng land, and feels that he is as good, and means to live as well as anr lord in the land. And yet the poor of London live for almost nothing; ana that great class just above the poor, the mechanic, the - mediocre artist, the shopman, the seamstress, the ten thousand working men whose supper every evening is a chance, even at noonday, that would craze 1 a Yankee, lire for a less sum than seems credible. . ; The eating bouses vary, in fact, from ths highest and most sumptuous style-of living to the very lowest. I say the eating houses, be cause in the American sense of the word, ho tels or taverns there are none.. There may be a table d'hote in some houses in London, 1 think I have heard it said that, there is one of some note, but I have seen none, and in ninety-nine cases out of a hundred, the stranger putting up in England must take care of him self; that is, he must eat, drink, go to bed, get up, just at whatever time suits him, and at his own special order. ' - Of renowned hotels in the English sense perhaps Morley's is the most famous. It is a palace in superstructure, size, condition and appointments. The charges here for rooms are from four to twelve shillings ster ling per day, the table bills from a crown to two guineas, just as one is disposed to indulge his taste for good eating.. "To this add two shillings a day for servants, that ever recur ring aud carelessly annowing expense in England, and you may soon incur a bill fit for a nabob. ' . - . 1 :-..'-.i Next below Morley's is a class of hotels of which 'Ihe yueen,' opposite the General Post Utnce, is a lair representative. Here - is one house, wrhere, after you have paid for your dinner, breakfast or supper, the waiter does not stand looking you in the face, and while you wonder 11 the change was not made cor' rect, or something you had ordered bad been forgotten, or wliat can be the matter, respect-" tuliy bows and says 'Kembember the waiter, sir!' And yet it makes but little difference, for upon settling when you leave, two shil lings a day is itemed in the bill under the head of 'servants.' I staid here four days, and my bill amounted to 'two-pounds six,' $1 1,50, and yet I never ordered a dessert, or drank spirits, wine or porter. - - Below this class are the 'Albert.' the 'Al- bany,', and , the "Sun, a fair specimen of m hundred others. In them you find every thing neat, orderly and quiet, paying one shil ling and sixpence for your bed, living fairly, without wine or dessert, for about one shilling a meal, and, if you can bide close quarters. sleeping, quietly. .Then . come other grades whose whereabouts 1 have not been anxious to learn, until you get down to the penny a slice shops, at the door of one of which I cer tainly say a hundred beggars wailing to be served in turn from the smoking pudding. 1. Along through the streets that open on the Strand, and indeed in every part of the city, are to be found good boarding houses, where they will charge you from two to three guineas a week, expecting always a slight gratuity to servants. . Pel haps there are good boarding houses where a less price is charged, but lliesc , were the usual , terms given in answer to my enquiries. It is said that board is higher this season, that the expected influx of strangers has made it so, and that it will be higher yet as the season advances. I think . this, verr probable, for my observation of London and London folks, has not led me to suspect here any exception to the general law of demand and supply governing prices. T ,.r ,.j , 1 tound another, nnd better and cheaper mode of life, and my experience may be worth something. There were four persons in our party, all 01 us expected to spend the summer in London. In the search for lodginos, I final ly found a quiet house in the west end of the city, some eight minutes walk from Hyde Park, where a parlor on the second floor and three bedrooms could be . obtained for six months, nt the rate of - two pounds ten shil lings per week. These I secured. They were furnished . and were to includo attendance, meaning a servant Two pounds more a week gave us, for our party, breakfast at nine o'clock in the morning and tea at eight o'clock in the evening. ' Occupied all the day in busi ness, each makes his dejeuner where he pleas es, at a general or average cost, as I find upon inquiry, of one shilling nnd sixpence. To this add laundress, fuel, which will be hut a tem porary item, lights, fec, say two shillings each per week, and our individual expenses will not be far from one pound fifteen shillings, or $8,50 per week. It is said that board out of the city, along the line of the railroad, may be obtained still cheaper than this. But I suspect that with the fare of riding,. added to the other expenses, and especially that carriage fare which comes when a luckless errand has left you a minute behind the starting time, the sum total would not fall below the city expenses of board. - s 1 Ol " " Jenst Lisd and Little Jimmy.

A Touching incident. ' ., We extract the following touching incident from a letter in the New York Mirror, written by a passenger in one of. Collin's steamers to kurope : ..- , ,u-: A , - 'A little girl was. returning to England in charge of the captain. She was the only fe male ou board, and by her sweet simplicity had won the lore of the noble captain and bis passengers. ' The, poor child was very, very sick, nearly all the way. and became much re duced in strength. rOnet dreary .night, the fancy struck her that so da water would be refreshing, and it was : given her perhaps too freely. ...

Mr, W.. C. Bond, of the Cambridge Observa tory, addresses the following to the I reveller: I have succeeded satisfactorily in repeating Foucault's experiment respecting the rotation of the Earth. The new Tower of the western wing of the Observatory, I found to be per fectly adapted to the purpose. My arrange ments are in this wny: Across the top of the cential pier, which is a hollow cone, thirty feet high, there is firmly uxed a wooden beam having the centre perforated lo admit the pas sage of a wire and the fixing of a Torsion Cir cle, such as is used with the Gauss Magne ometers. io the centre of this circle is at tached one end of- a silver wire; thirty feet long, of the size- commonly known as 'hne No. 6,' and to the other end of this wire is fasten ed a metalic cylinder weighing about four pounds, and terminating below in a conical point; on a platform directly below the weight and about thirty feet below the point of sus pension, is inscribed a circle of six and a half feet diameter, with the requisite subdivisions and radii. Aftej giving the pendulum an un biassed arc of vibration, a few minutes obser vation will suffice to show with certainly the motion of theeurth on its axis, as the termin ating point of the weight will be seen at each successive vibration lo arrive at the northern boundary of the circle a little more easterly than it did at the preceding one. : . Another correspondent says that this beau tiful experiment is so simple, that it may be readily repeated in most of our dwellings. Tint Stray LaMb Recovered. As one of the early Wesleyan ministers was riding by a farm house, he saw a young woman whom he knew to be a back slider. Driving up to the door, and fixing a look of sympathy upon her. he asked her if she had seen a stray lamb pass.' She replied that she had not ' 'Are you quite sure,' said he, 'that there has been no poor lost lamb here? '1 an quite sure. she replied. -An(yet, continued he, 'there has been onoliere.' The'true meaning of the minister suddenly broke upon her mind. ' She burst into tears, confessed that she was the stray lamb, and promised to renew her devo- votions to her shepherd, she afterwards be came a devout Christian. . . . ...
