I was practising law in Illinois on a - preiiy iarge circuit, , j. was caueu on one day m my office, in the town of C , by a very pretty woman, who, not without tears, told me her husband, had been arrest ed for horse stealing.. She wished to retain me on the defence. "I asked her- why she did not go to Judge. B.,' an ex-Senator of the United btates, whose omce was in the 6ame town. I told her that I was a young man at the bar, etc. . bbe mournfully said that he had asked a retaining fee above her means, and besides did not want to touch the case,., for her . husband was. fauspicioned of being a counterfeiter, whose head .quarters were on Moore s pratne. I asked her to tell me the whole truth of the matter, and if it was true that her hus band did belong to such a band? "Ah, 6ir," said she, Va better man at heart than my George never lived; but he liked cards and drink, and 1 am afraid they made him do what he never would have done if he had not drank. -I fear it can be prov ed that he had the horse; he didn't steal it; another did and passed it to him. I didn't like the easel' IJmew that there was & great dislike to the gang- located where she named; and feared to risk the case before a jury.. She seemed to. observe my inten tion, to. refuse the case, and burst into tears. I never could see a woman weep without feelinjsrlike a weak fool myself. If it hadn't been for -eyes brightened by "pearlv tears, (blast the poets that made them come in fashion by praising-' em,) I d never been caught in thejasso of matrimony. - And my would-be client was pretty- The handker chief that hid her streaming eyes didn't hide her ripe lips, and her snowy bosom rose and fell like a white gull in a gale of wind at sea I took the case and she gave me . the par ticulars. .7 :." . ;.;v ... The gang, of which he was a member, had persuaded him to take the horse.' lie knew that it was stolen, and like -a fool ac knowkdged it when he was arrested.' Worse still he had trimmed the horse's tail and mane to alter his appearance, and the oppo sition could prove it. ; Tho trial came on. , I worked hard to get a jury 01 ignorant men, wno caa more heart than brain, who, if they could not" fathom the depths of argument, or follow the laby rinthine mazes of the law,, could feel for a young fellow in a bad fix, a weeping, pretty wife, nearly broken-hearted, and quite dis tracted. v Knowing the usS of, "effect," I told her to dress in deep mourning, and bring her little cherub of a bov, only three years old, into court, and to sit as near her hus band as the officer would let herl ;I tried that game once, in a murder case, and a weep-' fag wife and sister made a ; jury render a ter dict against law; evidence and the Judge's charge, and save a fellow that ought to have been hung as high as Ilaman. The prosecution opened very bitterly; in veighed against ; thieves' ..and counterfeiters, who had made the. land a terror to strangers nnd - travelers, and who had robbed every Ctnner in the region of their finest horses. -It introduced witnesses and proved all and more than I feared it would. , The time came Xor me to rise for defence VitnessesI had none. But I determined . to make an etfort-i-OBly hoping so to inter est the judge and jury ai to secure a recom mendation u gubernatorial clemency and a light sentence. . So I painted, this picture. A young man entered into life wedded to. an angeU beautiful in person, possessing eTery gentle and noble attribute. Temptation-was before and all around him. He kept a tav ern.! Guests there were many; it was not for him to inquire into their business; they were, well dressed; made large bills and paid promptly. '. At an unguarded hour,' when he was insane with the liquor they urged upon himhe had deviated from the path of recti tude. The demon of alcohol reigned in hi3 brain; and it was his first offence. Mercy plea led for another chance to save him from ruin.- justice did not "require that his young wiie,should go down sorrowing to the grave, and thatthe ; shadow; of disgrace . and the taunt of a felon father should cross the path of that sweet child, Q how earnestly I did plead for them. .The woman wept; the hus- Dana aia tne same; tne jucge nagetea ana rubbed his eyes;. the-jury looked; jnelting. iri could have, had the closing' speech he would have been cleared; , but the prosecu tion had the close, and threw ice on the fire I had kindled, v But they did not quite put it out. '"- '; " . v The . iudxje charged aceordinsr to law and evidence, but evidently, leaned on the. side of mercy. 1 he jury louna a verdict ot guilty, but unanimously recommended the prisoner to the .mery ,Df.'the.cx)urtl-.-My;c.lient".was senterifced to .the shortest, imprisonment the court was empowered to give, and both, jury and court signed a petition Jo the Governor for an unconditional pardon, which has since been granted, but not before the following in cident occurred:"' J. C - . Some three month3 ' after this, I received an "account for collection' frpm-.a wholesale house in Kew York. The parties to collect from were hard ones, but they had property, and before they had an idea of the trap laid, I had the property,'' which they were about 10 assign peiore iney .DroKe, unaer attach ment. "Finding I.Vwas.a neck ahead and bound to : win, i the v ."caved in", and "forked over" three thousand . seven hun dred, and ninety-four- dollars :and eighteen cents, (per memorandum book) in good mon ey. They lived in Shawneetown, about 35 or.40 mDes southeast of Moore's prairie. ' I received the funds just after bank opening7 but other-. business detained me -till after dinner. I then, started for C intend ing to go as far as the village of ilt. Vernon that niffht. . - ' " ' , I had gone along ten or twelve miles, when I noticed a splendid team ot - double horses attached to a light -wagoiu in which were seated four men evidently of the high strumr order. They swept past as if to 6how how easily they could do it. iThey shortened in and allowed me to come up with them, - and hailing me asked me to "wet," or in other words diminish the contents of a jug of old rye they had aboard, but I excused. myself with the plea that I. had plenty on board. l hey asked me how far 1 was going. I told them as far as Mt, .Vernon, if my . horse didn't tire out. ' They mentioned a pleasant tavern ten or twelve .miles ahead,-as a nice stopping place, and then drove on. .1 did not like the looks of those, fellojvs, nor their actions. .But I was bound "to go ahead. I had a brace of revolvers and a nice knife; my money was not in my valise or my sulky, but in a belt around my body 1 drove slow in hopes that they would jjo on and I should see them no more. It was nearly dark when we saw a tavern siam ahead. In the same time I. saw their waron stood before the door. I would have pressed on, but my horse needed rest. I hauled up and woman came to the -door. She turned very - pale, but did not speak, but - with a meaning look she put her hnger on her lips and beckoned me in; she was the wife of my late caent. .. When I entered, the party recognized me, and hailed me as a traveling friend, and ask ed me to drink. . I, respectfully but firmly ucciincu 10 qo so. -. ... . "By Gd, you 'shall drink orfijriit!" said tbe noisiest of the party. "Just as you please; drink I shall not, said I, purposely showing the butt of a colt which kicks six times in rapid succession. i he party interposed, and very easily quelled tbe assailant. ' One otiered me a ci gar which I reluctantly refused, but a glance irom the woman induced me to accept.- She advanced and proffered me a light, and in so doing, slipped a note int my hand; which she must have written with "a pencil the moment before.- Never shall I forget the woras- tney were:- - rz ... -' "Beware ! they are members of the tramr, They mean to rob and murder you ! . Leave soon;-1 will detain them 1 ' v -5 - -- I did not feeL comfortable just then, but tnea to ao so. - "Have you any room to put up my horse?" I asked, turning to the woman. v , "What are you not going on to-night?" asked one 01 the men; "we are. " - . "No," said I, "I shall stay here to-night." "We'll all stay then, I guess, and make a night of it," said anotherof the cut-throats. " You'll have to put up your own horse here s a lantern, said .the woman 'l am used to that," I said. "Gentle men, excuse me. a minute; I'll join you in dnnk when 1 come tn!" - - "Good on your head! . . More whisky, old gal, shouted they. . . . ' I went out, glanced at their wagon; - it was old fashioned, and Clinch pins" secured the wheels. To take out my knife and pry one of them from the fore and hind ' wheels "was but the work of. an instant, and threw them as far off in - the darkness as I . could: To untie my horse and dash off ;was the work of a moment. The road led down a steep hill, but my lantern lighted me somewhat, 1 had hardly got under full headway when heard a yell from the party I. had so uncer emoniously left, I put whip to my horse. The next .moment with a shout they started. threw my light away, and. left my horse to pick his way. . A moment later, I heard a erash--a horrible shriek. V The wheels, were off.' Then came the rush of the horses tear ing along) with the ".wreck ofithe wagon.- mally thev. seemed to feteh up m the wood.

' Tho Sham Family. Mr. Sham lives up towri in a brown-stone front, with damask and lace at the windows He is a respectable man, always courteous and ready to do you a kindness, or to make an ingenious excuse if he cannot. Mr. Sham hires his coach and horses by the year, and his handsome coachman, too; but, ' if he spoke of them, he would tell you, in round term3, that his establishment cost him a cool two thousand; and he wouldn't think of keep ing so expensive an equipage, only Mrs Sham's health' is delicate! and the little Shams, cooped as they' are in the city, need a daily drive outoLtown. Mr. Sham sports a dashing watch, with heavy seal and chain that look' very much like gold, owing to a singular custom of their owner, who uses a certain white powder and . a piece of buck skin on them every morning; and . nobody surmises that Mr. Sham would wear any thing but gold, .lhat worthy gentleman is constantly talking of his family across the water, all ot whom are dukes and duchesses, lords and la'die3, and squires of high degree He is to come into possession of a fabulous fortune when somebody, dies, for whom he has too sincere a respect to wish that con summation dev3utly. . He is . going to buy such and such a country-seat the next sum mer, if business will only .be kind enough just to slack a little, a very little, just long enough to let him run up to li. or p., to survey the premises and examine the deed Everything belonging to Mr. Sham is mort gaged, except his' wife and children, and so are they, to an inexorable degree, to ultimate ruin! Mr. Sham is, a great boaster; in plain language, Mr. Sham is a great liar; he has lied so long that the poor man never knows when he teU3 the truth himself; indeed, his conscience only troubles him when he is not inventing. - .

The subject of education is attractin much attention in the country, and within the last few years great improvements have r But although much has been. done, the work of reformation is not complete? There is one glaring defect whichmust be reme died, ere we can conscientiously remain qui escent. This defect is the want of proper physical exercise in girls schools. . - - In all he better classes of boys' schools a gymnasium is considered an indispensa ble' appendage; while '"girls' are suffered to grow up without the advantages necessary for tbe perfect development of the system, : As the occupations of the female sex a; more sedentary than those of men, jthe for mer should be armed with vigorous consti tutions, to enable them to perform their du ties in life. ' On the contrary, the greater portion of girls have no other exereise than a walk to. school;which, however, long, is insufficient to . develop the muscles of the arms and chest. ' ' .1 " : s - 1 - " f Most of the maladies and weaknesses of modern ladies areattributable to the 'want of proper physical training in youth, . Pale cheeks, headache, indigestion, and nervous debility, are, m the majority of cases, pro duced by the same cause, from "which also arises that scourge of the female sex," spme disease, in its various forms. ' In all institutions of learning in tm country, an apartment fitted up for gymnas tic exercises . should be considered mdis pensable. - In that case, rosy cheeks and finely-formed busts would no longer be un common. - It has been remarked that the race is de generating in the United States; and amon the various causes assigned as the reason for it, the beat of our climate in summer, and the rigor of our winters; have been the chief. Should not the want of proper phy sical education of girls be rather adduced? Can a healthy offspring proceed from a frail and delicate parent? Let the mothers - be endowed with .vigorous constitutions, and there will be as little likelihood of degenera cy of, the race in -this country as in 'any other. , . . . - . . - - An old , woman who lived near the fron tier during the last war with Great Britain and possessed & marvelous propensity to learn the news, used frequently to make in quiries 01 , tne soldiers. .Un one. occasion she called to one of those defenders of . our rights whom she had frequently saluted be fore: - What's the news?" , "Why, good woman, " said he, "the In dians have fixed a crow-bar under Lake Erie, and are going to turn it over and drowu the world !'' . -. , . . - . , "Oh mercy 1 what shall I do?" andawav- she ran to tell the neighbors of the danger and inquire how such a calamity could - be averted. - - . - , -. r- "Why,". said he,, "you need not be alarmed we have our -.Maker's promise that He will not again destroy, the world by water. .... . - 'il know that,", returned the old lady. hesitatingly, "but He's nothing to do with it it 3 them plaguey ldian s." ; A certain sculptor, well known to. fame and fun, is not so well known to moral scru pies when he yearns for a dram.
