From the Loudon Punch.
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
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
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

We exact the following little story from
Miss Bremer's 'Northern Loves and Legends:'
"Certainly, you have observed how strang

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
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."
: 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
. 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. -

' "! 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. ... Spasms of the stomach almost imme
diately ensued, and before the roornine; came

world ; mourning most of all that no mother's
gentle hand would close ber eyes in their last
sleep,, nor a mother's,- prayer a .(Mother's
Prayer!) linger last upon her deafening car.
but the great stalwart captain had almost
mother's heart ; He . whose voice: could be
heard high up alcft, when, the tempest raged
in its fury, had tones of gentleness and love
for the poor dying child ; and though he scarce
know the meaning ot the word fear, tears fell
like rain front his. eyes upon the wasted form
ot the little corpse. T . , j. ; , v , ,cn 1 . :
'Beautiful, beautiful, niost beautiful though
full of gloom was the scene presented in that
cabin on that wild winter's- night.- With' ex
quisite delicacy, and almost sacred tenderness
was the corpse laid out and preserved. '' Bnt
another trying time for the generous vaptain
was yet to come, for he knew that the mother
would hasten to the dock gates to meet her
child the moment the ship's arrival was tele
graphed. ' And she did. 1 he captain saw
her in an instant, and as . soon as the ship got
near enough, to enable her -.yoico lo. be heard,
she could nolouger restrain herself, but cried

of this simple, thongh sad drama..'. Suffice it
to say, that when 1 nomas a. Cropper goes to

, Rotation of the Earth made Visible.
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.
