will have a few friends with me to
see how you succeed.' j
I determined, however, to try him
that night, and without any fitness
es to seeiV.heiker I succeeded or not.
My room I was over the stables, and
as the moon did not rise till j eleven
o'clock, I threw myself upon the bed
flotlics,and,contrary to ray intention,
fell ;Uleep.!jWhcn I awoke, jtjwss
twelve, the moon was shining bright-

ble as if it were day. i "
I went down to the stable with a
bridle prepared for the purpose, and
a heavilv-loaded whin in my hand.
I knew that It would be impossible to
saddle him; and, indeed I would be
safer on his bare-back, in the event
of tin-owing bimself down. I opened
tho stable-door gently, and there he
was i prone on his side, his legs and
neck stretched out, as I had often,
seen horses 'h'ing .afiir sore fatigue.
I clapped my knee upon his head,
loosed the collar that bound him, sli p-
ped the bit nto his mouth, buckled
the tl'iorit-biir.d, raised! his feet, and
backed him jout.and leaped upon his
hack before he hai time to !get Ins

A Roiuanlic Affair
A da' or two tiuce, we published,
says a Cincinnati paper, the mar
riage of Mr. F- , of Vicksburg,
to Miss R , ofCovingtoa. From
circumstances of a rather singular
character, connected ;with the mar
riage, a good deal ofgobsip has been
occasioned in this community du
ring several - days '''past. : It appears
that Mr.S), of Covington, had been
paying his nddresses to the lady, and
had pressed, his suit s
he had reason to beliovd
, for the en-
gagemeut had been completed and
- j the wedding day fixed
i py in ilqj,rotestations and caresses

proaching nuptials. Tho wedding
garments were prepared, the clergy-

although ho never swore before, that
she should never receive one cent of
his wealth he is worth near 100,

duce a reconciliation. The nexfc
morning the news spread everywhere,
and Mr. S. found all Covington jest
ing about his misfortune. This jilt
ing affair, so -extraordinary' and un
accountable at first glance, is ex
plained after this manner, by those
who appear to. know. Miss R. had

Strange 'tolsny, he got up, scratched

' The S&asbarg Clock,
The priest and military havs re
tired, and I am cow sitting in a chair
facing the gigantic clock from tha
bottom to the top not less than one
hundred feet and. many stranger
are waiting to sea thewor cingof this
clock when it strikes the hour of
nocn. Every eye is upon the clock
It now wants five minutes to twelve.
The clock has struck, and the peoph
are gone, except a few whom the sax
ton. or head man, with a wand
and a sword, is showing the building.
The clock is stiuck in this w iy. The
dial is some twenty feet from the floor,
on each side of which is a cherub or
a little boy with a mallet, and over
the dial there is a small $ell- The
cherub on the lefc strikes tho first
quarter, and the one on the right th9
second quarter, j Some fifty feet over
the dial, in a large niche, is a hug9
figure of time, a ; bell in his left, a
scythe in his right hand. In front
stands a figure' cf a young man, with
a mallet, who strikes tho third quar
ter on the bell in! the band of Time,
and then glides, with a slow stip,
round behind Time; out comes an tbl
man, raises his j mallet, and p!a: es
himself in front of him. As the hout
of twelve comes, the old man raise. "
his mallet and deliberately strike,
twelve times on the bell, that echcei
through the building,1 and is heard
round tho region cf the church. Then
the old man glides slowly behind Fa
ther Time, and tho young man
comes round again. Soon ns Uio old
man has struck twelve and disappear
ed, another set of machinery is put
in motion, some twenty feet higher
still. It is thus: There is a hih
cross with an imago of Christ on sr.
The instant twelve has struck, one f f
the apostles walks out from behind!,
comes out in front, tnrns, bows, arid
walks round to his place. As he do. .
so, another comes out in front, turns,
bows, and passes in, so twelve npos
ties1, figures as large a3 life, . wall
round, bow, and pass on. Ai the last
appears, an enormous cock, perched
on the pinnacle of the clock, slowly
flaps his wings and crows threa
times, so loud as to be heard outside
the church to some distance, and so
naturally as to.be mistaken for a real
cock. Then nil is a3 silent as death.
No wonder this clock i3 the admira
tion of Europe. It wasm:.d3 in! 1500.
and has performed these mechanical
wonders ever biuec,2C:pt '--bo-Jt fif
ty years, when it was out of repair." -
