J one of the city papers of (lotham, .some fifteen years ago. A d ay or two si nee j wo fell in with a gentleman who look pains to aci|tiainl himself personally with j the faels at the time of their occurrence, mid who vouches for the truthfulness of the subjoined narrative i Not long since, two stylish-looking persons put up for the night in llie upper part or the oily. On the morrow, after ordering their bill, they scut for the landlord, who was not long in wailing upon his aristocratic guests. " I wish to purchase tlnit old clock up stairs; will you sell it?" usked the elder, \vhile the vounjror cast his eves over tin- i columns of a newspaper which lay upon | the table. The landlord, who had set no I great value upon the clock, except as an j heir-loom, began t>? suspect it might pos- j so.ss the virtue of I ley wood's chair, all I filled with coin?and almost involunta- I lily the tlirco ascended to the room which !

I 'The fact is," said the older, "I onec j won twenty pounds with a clock like ! that." j % "Twenty pounds!" ejaculated llie land- i i?,j. j; " ^ os. ^ oil set; t lint tle-re w:i- olio like it in a uxnu down in J*Nsi x, ami a j follow hot llli' li<* eolild |;o.-|? 11fulo- | finger swinging with tin- ni-mlaliim fur an i it ' liolir, on!v saving, " Here she goes the|-?-| she goes." lie ooiililn'i <lo it. 1 walk- ' . cd the money out of him ill no time ! ; ^ " Vou did."

Ail was silent ; the dapper man at length exclaimed. "Shail I deposit the* money in the humls c of the waiter ?" s: "Here she goes, there she goes!" was t., the only wi?wer.

Ii The waiter rushed down stairs, called one of the neighbors, and invited liiin up to see i his master. They ascended, and the neiyh- j ? l?or seizing him gently by the shoulder, in I ^ an imploring voice, said, , '* Mr. 15 , do not sit here. Come, ^ go down stairs ; what can possibly possess c you to he sitting here !" " Here she goes, there she goes!" was the only reply, and ihe solemn lace and tlie slow moving finger settled the mat- ^ ter. c " lie is m ill," replied tlie friend, " we j must go Ati' a doctor."

"My dear," she still continued, thinking t< that the thought of his child, whom ho n fondly loved, would tend to restore him, f< "shall I call up your daughter?" " Hero she goes, tliere she goes!" tho landlord again repeated his eyes becoming Cl more and more fixed and glazed from the steadiness of the gaze.

COLOR. Anatomists and physiologists have lahoriv 1 very earnestly to account for or show llii' "cause" of color, Hot of the !!eL'ro alone, hut in the ea?e of our own race. TIm'V have m?i:erai!v ? apposed that the ]>!;/iri<u(ion iiif/rmn, a substance lyin^j immediately bem-ath the outer "kin or cuticle constituted this cause, and therefore the complexion was fair or dark, blonde or brunette, just as this "coloring" matter mitrht happen to he dark or otherwise. This, in a sense, is doubtless true, hut to speak of it j as a'eause is an abuse of terms, for it is J simplv a fact, and no more a cause thai; it j is an ctlect. Cause and causes in natural j phenomena are known only to tlit* mind of Omnipotence, and why the Caucasian color ...i.u.. .... .1. n -- - i -- o ...III., Ul Liu- iUIMIfrill yCllOW, 0|- I lie III!- | gro liiacfc, is as absolutely hidden from u- I as the "caUMi" of their existence at all ? as ! wholly beyond lii?; sc-??|?e of human intclli- i gelice, ami therefore of rational cinpiirv, as ! Liu; "cause" of tin- return of die seasons, or why men and a nals at a certain time arrive at maturity or linally decay and die.? The divine wisdom and perfect, iitiicss of I lie fact itself, however is clearly appreciable. and we are able to see not only ils lansei'iidanl importance, hut the utter impossibility of its being otherwise. There s.iu all the works of <?od peilVet hannonv is well a> perfect wisdom, and therefore >uch a monstrosity as a "colored man"?or i being like ourselves in all except the color .if tin* negro, is not merely ah.-urd l>ut as mpos-ihle. in fact, though not so pa'.palilc o a superficial intelligence, as a white body tfith a negro head on its shoulders, or indeed i- a dog with the head of any other ani na 1 or form of being. Tiie face of the Caucasian reflects tfio haiaoter, the emotions, the instiie-ls, Ao a :ertain extent Ili<; intellectual foiees, and svcii (lie acquired habits, tin; virtues or vires ??l" the individual. Tl.is, to a certain xtent, depends <iii tin- mobility of tin- fa:ial muscles and the general anatomical trueture ami outline of tins features, but vithotit our color tin* next expression wouM m* very impel feet, and tlic t'.iee wholly in apable of ivllecting the inner nature ami pecilie character of the race. For exam>le: "\Vlisil is there at the same time so harming ami so indicative of inii< r purity iml innocence as the blush of maiden mod sly ? For an instant the fair face is scaret, then perhaps paler than ever in its <leli ate transparency, and these physical clian* fi's, beautiful as they may be to the eve, re rendered a thousand times more so by tur consciousness that they relied moral motions infinitely more beautiful. Can ,uy one suppose such a thing possible to a >lsurk face?that these sudden and startling heruations of color which reflect the moral lerceptions and elevated iialnre of the iliiUs women, are possible in the negress. Ind if tin* latter cannot r?-ll?*<-t these tilings ii ln-r faee?if her features art! utterly in* apahle of expre<Hiij; emotions so elevated nd heatifnl, is it not certain Unit slio is l iiliont tin-in?tliat tltey have no existence i her inner heitijr, are no portion of her loral nature ? To suppose otherwise is 1 ot only ahsurd hut impious?it is to supo-e that, the Almighty Creator would enow a heiug with moral wants and eapaciies that could have no development ? with n inner nature denied any external relleeion or manifestation of its wants or of iti*lf. Of course it is not intended to say | lint the negreSR has not a moral nature, it I ( i only intended to demonstrate the fact. ' < lint she lias not the m??ral nature of tin* j 1 bite woman. She absolutely does not ' ml absolutely cannot give outward ox pros- ( ion to those high moral <|Uali1ies which < re reflected in the varying color ami changig features of the white woman, and there ' >re those who would endow her inner mi ' ire with these qualities, must necessarily ( harge the Creator with the gross injustice f withholding from her any expression of ualities so essential to their own happiness | s well as to our conception of the dignity < < d beauty of womanhood. This same illustration is extensively di ' ersifi"d in legard to the other sex. It is j sen every day in our social life, and con i onts us at every stop. The white man is 1 usliod with anger, or livid with fear, or ale with grief. lie is ut one moment so liarged with the darker passions as to he 1 Imo-t Idack, and the next so softened hv >rrow or stricken hy grief that his face is loodless and absolutely white.
