The following jeu tHeipril one of the
most exquisite ever jierportrated has
liecn published before, but is always good :
One night, as old St. Peter slept,

When throush a little onccl crept.
And came down with a falling star.
One summer as tlio blessed bearaj
Or morn approached, my Washing bride.
Awakened from pome plcasin? dreams.
And foundtbat angel by her side.

That when be leaves thi world of fin.
He'll wins his way to that b!e.sed shore
And find that gate of heaven again.
St. Peter's Keply.
Full eightoon hundred joars or moro
I've kept my doorssesurdr tied:
There has no"littloantrel"ftrayod.
Nor ono been missing all tho while
T did not sleep as ynu supposed.!
Nor left tho door of Heaven jr;
Nor has a " littlo angol" left.
And gone down with a falling ttar.
Go ask that " bluhing bride" and tee
I f she won't frankly own and sy.
That when sho found that angel bbc.
She found it in the good old way.

That should your number you enlarge.
Tnat yc will not do a beforo.
And lay it to old Peter's charge.
A 'thrilling-Al venture oaa Chimney-
The most intensely exciting narrative
we have read for many a day, i tho fol
lowing story from a London magazine, en
titled the Quiver:
A man will go blind, and mid too, from
fear; I have wen it happen, nnd if you
don't mind listening, will tell you the
story. I was apprenticed to a builder when
I left school, and soon got to like the trade
very much, especially when tho work was
perilous, and gave me a chance to out-do
the other lad "in daring. "Spider" was
my nickname in thoe days, given partly
on account of my long legs, for I had out
grown my proportion, and partly because
they satu 1 coulil crawl along a root like
iuv namesake. When I was three-ana
twenty I was working with the unions Mr.
, and went down to Swansea with his
picked bands to cirrv out a contract he
had taken in lint town. While there
fell in love vuih ihe prettiest girl I had
neeii in Wales, and iliat 13 saying a good
deal. For a time I fancied she likrd me,
and that I was getting on very well with
my love-making, b.H i toon found out mv
mistake, for an old lovtr ofbtrs joined our
tnsn and Mary gave me the cold shoulder
directly, joti uiiy believe thu sweet
heart of hers (alio va- cilleil Bin Lloyd)
and I werenol the be-aTriendi in the world ;
but I am not the mrt of fellow to harbor
malice, and when the biddings, to the wed
ding weut round and I knew that my
chance was gone, 1 nude the be.it of it ; I
kept my sire heart to myself, and determ
ined to btat down j-alousy, by heinggreat
chiiim with Ben.
I went to the wedding: and there were
not nianv davs when I -did not Meal half
an hour to 'it by hi fireside which was a
bright and cozy and home-like a you'd
wirf-i to xe Mary b i g the soul of order
and irdustry. It U r.ut, perhap.', the usual
way of driving on, envy, to go and look at
the happine-s another man tin done you
out of, but you know what the proverb
says, "What U one mat meat i another
inau's poison ;" and o it wa, 1 git to look
upon Mary as t sort of sister, and Ben bad
no w fvfr j-aioli-y, although llierc were
plenty .f Cvii loui-'ift ready to put hint up
Tho contract wn n-sily up, when a
lightning-conductor up .i one of the high
ct chimneys oer at Llanelly fpiang, and
tho owner of the work offered our master
"it'- jun thu ttort of thing fur you,
Harry," said Mr. , whoa he told us
J. touched my cip, and accepted it off
hmd, and then Ben stepped up ami said
he'd viiliintitr to be the second man, two
"All right,' said the master, "yon are
the steadiest-lieadi.d fellows I have. The
price is a gid one, and every penny ol it
hall be divided between you. We'll not
fix a day for the work, but take the first
calm morning, and get it done quietly."
So it wa.i that, some four or five morii
ing after, wr f.mml ourselves at Llanelly,
and all rtady for the start. The kilo by
which l!i li:f ,1'tubed to the block was
to bo sti.t v-r in- chimney, was flown,
and did ttl woik well ; the ropi which was
to haul up the cradle was ready, and step
ping in, Ben and I began the ai-cent.
There had been very few people about
when we went into the yard, but as we got
higher I saw that the news had spread, and
that the SirU were filling with Bight-seers.
'Thert'ri plenty of star-gazers, Ban," I
said, waving my cap to them ; "1 dare say
they'd like to see U3 come down with a
"Can not you keep quiet?" answered
J!en, speaking in a strange tone ; and turn
ing to look, 1 saw that he wa3 dsadly pale,
and rat in the bottom of tho cradle, hud
dled up together, with his eyes fast shut.
"You're not frightened' old chap?" I
"WhaiV that to you ?"
"O nothing; only wc are getting tip
pretty quickly, and you'd have a better
bend for work if you'd get gradually ued
to the height."
He said nothing and never moved.
Then looking up 1 saw that we were close
to the top a few yards more and we
would be there ; yet those who were turn
.iiig the windla-s wero winding with unaba
ted speed. A sudden chill ran through
my blood and set my llesh creeping. They
had miscalculated the distance, and wilh
the force the-y were windindingat, the rope
must inevitably break when the cradle
came in c ontai'l with the block. There
wa3 no time to attempt a signal, only an
innlant to ii.t out the danger to Ben, aud
. iLcu to gel hold of the rope, and by going
band over, reach the coping before the
cradle came up. This was done almost
quicker than 1 cau tell you, Ben following.
riietitadlti came on; tluti, as 1 antici
pated, the nje gave a shrill, pinging
round like a ulle hall pacing through the
air, and snapped. Down went tho cradle
and there we were left, ntarly three liun
titnl fret in the air, wilh nothing to rest
upon bet moping barely eighteen inclus
Ben tthrii ki d that lie kjh a de.td man,

But he only i-hook and swayed more and

Scarcclv had 1 litni to r .uiitr. lieli.l this.
when he lie-gati edgii a hi wav toward uie
and C7i-ry hair on my hrd sesrintsl to stand
on end, as I movtd away, keeping as fat oIT
as 1 could, and scsrccly daru.g to breathe,
lebt he should hi .ir me, for fee me he could
not that wjs my nlv c rifo:atio:i. Onre
twice thiice he followed me round the
mouth of that horrible e-himuey ; then, no
doubt thinking 1 had fallen over, gave up
the search, and liegn trying to get on to
Ilia feet. What o old I now do to save his
life? To touch hi:il was ceitniu death to
niyeelf as well as him, for he would inevit
oblv seize me, and we should holligoover
to-tther. To let him stand up, was lo wit
jii6 liis tsjually certain destruction.
I thought of poor Mary, and 1 remem
bered that it he dird, ehc might get to care
for me. Tho devil put that thought in my
mippose ; but, tbauk God, theie
wm one stronger luau oaiuii near, anu at
the risk of my life, I roared out, "Sititill,
or vou will fall, Ben Lloyd 1"
He crouched down and held on with
clenched teeth, shivering and shaking. In
after days, he told me that he thought that
it was mr spirit sent to warn and save him,
"Sit still," I repeated from time to time,
watching with aching eyes and brain for
some sign of aid- Each minute seemed
to be an hour. My lips grew dry, my
tongue literally clave to my mouth, and
the perspiration running down blinded
me. At last at last hone came. Hie
crowd began to gather in the yard, people
were running in Irom distant lanes, anu a
sea ol faces was turned upwards; men
some ono who had got a speaking-trumpet
shouted, " Keep heart, boys, we'll save
you 1" A few minutes moro and the kite
began to nee ; higher and higher it comes,
on and oa. JIow 1 watched the white
win red mc33eacer, comparing it in my
heart to an angel; and surely, as an angel
was it permitted to come to us poor sinners
hanging' on the verge of eternity. Up it
came, nparer and nearer, guided by the
skillful Jlier. The. slack rope crowed th
chimney aud we were saved.
X could not shout hurrah, even had 1
dared; but in every beat of my heart vctn
a thanksgiving to the God I had never
truly known till that hour, and whose
merciful providence I can never doubt
Ihe block was fixed, the cradle came up
again, and Ben obeying my order got in
I lollowed; but no sooner did I touch him
than he began trying to get out. 1 got hold
of him. and taking it in his head that
was attempting to throw him over, he
struggled and fought like the madman he
was granplintr. tearinc wilh his teeth,
shouting, shrieking and praying all the
way down, while tbo cradle strained and
cracked, swincmz to and Iro nice tlw pen
dtilum of a clock. As we came near the
ground I could hear the roar of voices, and
an occasional cheer: then suddenly all was
silent, for they had heard lien's cries, and
when tbo cradle touched the ground, scar
selr a man dared look in. Tbo first who
did, saw a horrible sight, for, exhausted by
the struggle and excitement, so soon as the
cradle stopped I bad fainted, and Ben feel
ing my hands relax, had fastened his teeth
into my neck
Xo wonder the men fell back with
blanched faces : thev saw that lien was
crazed ; but they thought that he had
killed me, for as they said, he was actually
worrying me like a dog.
At last the tnater got to us, and pulled
Ben olF me. I soon came round, but it
was a long time before he got well, poor
fellow; and when he did come out of the
aylum, he was never fit for his old trade
again, so he aud Mary went out to Aus
tralia, and the last I beard of them was
that Ben had got a couple of thousand
t-hetp, and doing cipitally.
I gave up thu trade, too, woii anVr, find
ing that I got queer in the head when I
tried o face lieiuht. S-, you JO.-, that
mnrning's work changed two men's live.

Tl remains of Mr. J. n. .Mariin-tein
W' f followed to the grave vpsterdiy from
his I to residence. No. 216 Bourbon street,
by"a large corteg of his friends and the
Deutche Geeellschalt. Over half a century
ago Mr. Martin-tein came to this city, pro
vided with little means, but with sulhcient
to establish him in a small way in the
hardware business on Chartres street, oc
cupying half of the store of Mr. J. A. Bar
riere, who became in lime one of the lead,
ing merchants of this city and of (h i'm
bonrg I'oissoniere, in 1'aiir.
Very few of our old citizitis Lut reuiem-Ix-r
leiitwr 3arlintiein, as he was called by
everybody, totieringon his way to or from
or silting in the store- No. 93 lioy.il street,
and his eeccntric wavs. Just as the old
man was, so was the young man. His es
tablishment on Chartres ctreet became such
a confused mass of "what not," that it he-
came necessary to separate it from the
growing drygoods store of Mr. Barriere.
For years Martinatein occupied the build
ing, and in due time amassed considerable
wealth, but still the shop maintained the
con f ii J. d and dingy sppearauco which
characterized it; and as a trait of his ec
centricity wcwill mention that positive in
junction was placed against removing the
cobwebs which generally shrouded the
walls of the room. The building was torn
down for improvements, and ltoyal t-ticet,
opp the present shop, was selected by
Air. Maruns'.ein a3 his new place of bu.si-
It was about this time that a financial
crisis eccurred, and Mr. Martinslein, wilh
that probity for which he was noted, called
a meeting of his creditors and ofiered a
surrender of his property. An examina
tion of his affairs proved that such a step
was unnecessary, and he was exhorted to
continue as he had done and all would he
right ; but exhortations and expostulations
were unavailing. At that time litigation
elid not co?t as much a? now. Sj, after due
proceeding", the creditors and coats were
paid out of the proceeds of the stock, and
from fifteen to twenty thousand dollars
were turned over to the would-bo bank
rupt no notice having been taken of hi
real estate. How long it is since the pre
sent location had been occupied by the de
ceased we cannot remember.
Whenever no other store in the citv
could answer a call for a certain article, it
was sure to be found at No. OSKoyal street.
You could buy there anything from a
needle to the finest cambric or a bottle of
ink. The goods apparently wrapped up in
dozan papers or cloths were piled or
heaped without regard to quality, classifi
cation, or any kind of order. But Martin
stein's memory never failed him ; lie knew
th it two years previously he.had purchased
euch an article, or placed it away in some
corner, and, s-iilioiit the least hesitation,
he was ceituin lo lay his hands upon it.
Another characteristic of thu rcmaik
able man was that he never forgot the
price he had ptid for un article, ar.d u at
that time he kept no accounts, his m.-mury
also i-crvcd liim lo stipulate the Htdliog
price, Iroiu which ho never deviated. Ti.e
outer world did not trouble him, aud :!-

The proprietor of tnis celebrated medicine
Justly claims for it a superiority over all rem.
edics ever offered to the public for the safe,
certain, speedy and permanent cure of Agne
andFover.or Chills and Fever, whether of
short or long standing. He refers to the en
tire Western and South-western country to
bear him testimony to the truth of thu asser.
tion, that in no case whatever will it tail to
cure, if the directions are strictly followed
and carried out. In a $reat many casr a sin
gle tose has been suthcient- for a cure, and
whole families have been cured by single bot
tle, with a perfect restoration ol general
health. It is, however, prudent, and in every
ease moro certain to cure, if its use is confin
ed in smaller doses for a week or two alter
the disease has been checked, more especially
in difficult and long standing cases. Usually,
this medicine will not require any aid to keep
the bowels in good order; should the patient
however, require a cathartic medicine, after
having taken three or f oar doses of the Tonic,
a single dose of Btxl's Vegetable racily
Pills will be sutaclent.
