There is no doubt in my find that women were placed upon earth prin cipally in order to cause unhappiness to men; and this I say both from ob servation and to speak candidly, from sad personal experience. Nor do thing improve as one grows older; for, i my opinion, first love, puppy love, or whatever else you may chose to call it, is a disease much more easily cured than that divine madness which sometimes seizes upon the masculine sex in later years. About three years ago, having dis covered that an angel vision visited my lonely pillow every night, and scarce ever quitted my side by day, even during business hours, upon a close examinatiou of my inner self I concilded that I too had become a victiml to that fell disease from which no man1 may live his allotted timne upon earth in freedom. In plain lan guage I found myself head and ears in love with a delightful younggirl of sixteei. Moreover, finding myself already past the sad lRubicon of thirty, and actuated by the mournful reflections above stated-that to escape this uni versal disease is i impossible, and that when warded off until later years it becomes only the more fatal-I gave way to the malady which had seized upon me, and so far from driving away the image which dwelt continually with me, I did all in my power to in vite the celestial spirit, and further more, deliberately made up my mindt to request the actual presence of the fair original whenever the proper time should arrive; that is to say, when ever she should have finished school. Now this request, in imagination, I very easilly made; but, somehow or other, when it came to the 1bona lide carrying out thereof. I found myself suddenly So weak inl thel :lees tlhat had I not bd4n seated I should cer tainly have lost by balance and fallen to the ground, and had not the sofa 11upon1 which I was accustomed to sit been a remarkably conmfoIrtable one I would have experienced a sensation of faintnessamounting to a-sickness; and( from this any one may judge of the vehemence of Iny elmotions. 'l'hanks, however, to the comfortable sofa, and more perhaps, to the resolu tion that I would put matters off until next evening. 1 never actually either til riupol the llour nor hfinted quite away. 1The' (tlij',ect of my Wdrsllipj,. whil onl -tllºe oaesionl waft -.hted hlidre me, iperceiving notfing of these internal from oft relpetition heenllme an hahitunal -thing. T'hi", however, only enused m)I to appear lpoetical andl interesting in tihe eyes (f mIvy beloved, thus caus ing thi ros0s to llooImn, more hiiIntifilly than el ulpon iher check, and her iciws to Aline mIore brightly than they would otherwise have done. The efflect produced was electrical and mutual, and being thus prepared lly readers will not beo stonished to learn that one evening, thel gas being lowered, on aceollnt of tile lunsquitoes, Lavinia's father and lmother having gone to church, tile younrer children in hbed, the servants in tie kitchen, and there having been for so1me timne ino ring atthe door-bell, ill colnsequence of this exquisite combination of cir enmlntanees, Lavinia and I found ourselves, neither of us could tell heow, our Ihands clasped, the ice broken, the roses bLlootuig withl astonishing bIil liancy al both oWri cheeks, and-if I sh.ould say Imore I would spoil what I have said. I only know that an in tillc't warned m of the approach of ten o'clock, at. which time her father and motherl might h1e expected to enter, and thlerefore I left he1r, but not until 1 nhad imprinted one dear. delicious, ibshflll kiss upon her lovely lips. lHow closely united in this life are thec romantic and practical! Follow ing uIpon that evening camell the lnxt mnorning. dluling the course of whlich I found myself closeted with thel father, and discoursing on stocks, bonds, real estatie, business proslects, a11nd1 other kilndlred wtatters, upon all of which I was armed to thle teeth and fully pre pared. T'1ih1s the. afltir was settled, with Int one sa'ving clause, which was that on ;account of Lavinllia's youth thelt grand tinale should be delayed for the space of two years. Her father also made a request of 1ne, which I thoueghlt a cruel one41, but being from the, force of cireunltances in a sub missive and yielding fraimel of mind I gave way. This was tlhat in conllsid elration of her youth I should not see my divinity for the space of that tinme, during which her character would ac qluire stlengtll, anid he' affection for 1i1, if real, wvould only illcrease. heing a man of honor I determined to keep Illy profmise, and knowing this to be iulmpossible unless some i1 passable barrier divided us, I resolved to place the roaring ocean between Ius, and moved also by considerations 1 of gain, I went to China. Meantime I waited with difficulty thlle rolling away of the appointed two ye'ars, .and calciulating the time which woull he consuIlled )by the voIyagLe, I set sail, ill order to arrive in New York iby the ctnding of my probation. Passing over the long voyage, dur ing which a fearful contest was waged between sickness on the one hand andl dcevot ion to miiy inaiuol'ata on the other, :and leaivilng iii the background all tile i varied little disagreceableuess of land ing. 1 twill, together with iny repectedi l sell'. taun-llport my reader .to the dour steps of the stately mansion which sheltered the beloved of my soul. Inasmuch as I had lingered on the way in order to render my toilet ns elegant as possible, the street lamps were lighted up when I finally reached my destination. Darkne,-s was fall ing on the earth, but through the sur rounding gloom my spirit soared aloft, sustained by celestial visions-visions of my youthful charmer, all grace and innocence, yielding gently to my iml passioned greeting. More beautiful than ever I was assured that she had rown, and as to her constancy I doubted not for a moment. I reached the house, and with a heart bursting from too mulch happi ness, ascended the high brown stoop, affected as I (lid so almost to tears by the thought that very soon now I should purchase a high stoop browul stone house of my own, and that she and I would day by day ascend and descend the same in company together, made one forever. Strange to say, the door stood open, and I know not by what impulse, but probably be cause I was transported beyond the bounds of sense and in the, mood to do unlikely things, I entered without ringing, and advanced unannounced into the drawing room. Overcome for the moment, I seated myself on a sofa the dim outline of which half showed itself in the twi light, for the gas had not been lit. I heard voicees-from the inner parlohr. Whatt The voice of my charme(r! Angelic sound! Enraptured, I held my breath to listen. "He might be here any day ; the steamship is due." Heavens! What happiness! Hler whole soul wrapped in mine! Think - ing, talking of my coming ! Invol nlmitrily I grasped my vest pocket, in which lay an elegant jewel case, greet ing present for my darling. But I mnust hear those tones again. I did. Softly, sweetly she continued : " I don't know what I shall say to the silly goose; I wish he would stay away." ".Silly goose! Silly goose !" that could not. he myself. Impossible! But a cold shudder ran from the top of my head to the soles of my new boots. Now I must, I would hear. I heard. "lie is getting bald, too." " Bald ! " thought 1, and I put. my hand to my head. Sure enough, I was a little bald. Of course I had knowni it all along; but then--well, this wc-as .ulspicious. I must hear the rest. I heard: ".lust think of it- nearly flfty Iv.ai old, andl gettin.g lehlt!" lHetweeln thirty and forty : that was "And I only eightelin." My love was eighteen, pnvici-.ly. ''" irls of sixteen are so silly. Ile took adlvantage of ime, for indeed, a child of that age thinks she is in love with any body. lie haplpened to be the first one, and I knew no better. Now I aim a young lady and know my own umind. I know that I care only for you. But here is the difliculty. The old creature has mitalde money- out there in China, and papa will be angry with me if I do not marry hlim." No more doubtinlgs--no more fears. It was I she called '' the old creature." ''o whom did she speak I A inasei.linje voice replied : "Your own Charles, darling, will make money too." Thie voices cea.;sed and a slight, rust ling was heard. A flash ! A servant, had come in to light rthe gas. A mno ment more and the front parlor would be illuminated. Quick! Now or Ine er! A rush. and I was gone. Cone through the open door--goll dfown the high stoop. And my visions? Gone, too. I could have fotrgiven all, hut thlat she had called mi, "' the old c|rea ture." In the I'aka.ine (Russia) the women court more generally than the men. When a young woman fills in love with a ,iman she is not in the least ashamed to go to hisfat.her's house and reveal her passion in the most tender and pathetic manner, and to promise the most sulmlissive olbedience if he will acc(pt. her as his wife. Should the insensible 111man pretend any x cese, she tells him she is resolved IIever to go out of the house until lihe gives his consent, and accordingly taking up her lodgings, remains there. If he refused her, his case becomes exceedingly distressing. '!'The church is commonly on her side, and to turn her out would provoke her kindred to revenge her honor, so that he hasi no method left but to betake himself to fight till IIl is otherwise disposed of. The International Typographical Union convened at Montreal last Tues day, President Ilammond of New Or leans in the chair. One hundred and twenty delegates present. The fol lowing officers were elected for the ensuing year: W. ItR. McLean of Washington, President; Win. Kennie dy of Chicago, First Vice President; W. G. Collins of Cincinnati, Second Vice President, and JI. E. Hawkins of Memphis, Corresponding Secretary. A fellow entered a wood-turner's shop. and asked the proprietor if he (lid all kinds of turning. Receivin g an affirmative answer, he coolly re quested him to turn a couple of hand springs and a flip-tanp. TIhe hunmor was quickly turned out of the shop. Solomon's Temple. The skill, the art, the mighty toil, that have been devoted to the adorn neient, and to the desecration, of thiis most ancient place of worship, have been of extrardinary n'magnitcudle. The grandest legacy of Egyptian anti quity, the Great Pyramid, demanded, indeed, p larger amount of naked ln man habor; but in Moriahli there is a comnpnhlion of the features of Nature herself to the service of the builder. In actual bulk, the Great P'yramid is to the Te'nmple rock as five to nine, if we desle.nd but as far as the sills of the fives.ouble gates of the mountain of thte house. If we carry the compar ison down to the level at which the lowest ftillndation of tlhe walls is in laiil ini the rock at the angles of the enclosure, tie bulk is three times that of the Great Pyramid. The cubic con tents of the mason's work may not anmount to a tenth part of that piled up by Soupnhis. But the hill has been honey-combed with chambers and gal Iclries, ald the declining part to the south covered with vaults and arches, to which (:heezeh can show no paral lel. No merely artificial structure could have so successfully resisted the resolute eflorts of the two greatest military nations of the anicienlt world to destroy its (existence and obliterate its imnemory. No other Imlllonulellt, long surviving the era of Asiatic and italian powenr, ca in ever, like the nolde S:uictlnan, inark by its very ruins, the successive periods of its glory and its fall ! If we regard not so muich the evi dnlce of tihe labor devoted to the work of time Temple as the effect produced on the mind by its apparent m:agni thde, we may suggest the fdollowing coiparisoni : the length of the eastern wall of the Sanctuary is rather more tlhan double that of one side of the (trmeat I''ratmid. Its height., fronl the flunldation on the rock at the so th, and near the' northern anglhs, was lnealy lI third of thlnt of the Egjyltilll structure. If to tllis great height of onll hundrlilled and fifty-two feet of solid wall Ibhe added thle descent of one hunidrell and fourteen feet to the bed of the Kedron, and the flther el(evai tliou ofl one hundred and sixty feet attained Iy tlie pinnacle of the Teni plhe porc"'h, we have a total height iof fuir hundlreed and twenty-six feet. which is only fifty-nine feet less thani that of the Great I'vraunid. The larea eof the' flace of the eastern wall is ilmoire than d(oublel that of ollce side of the p.l) rainid.

Mc Kenzie in pursuit of thieves has re sulted in more or less excitement amoing the people on the Mexican side of the border. Some reports say that the excitement is very great, and that preparations were being made volun tarily by the people, of a military character, as if they contemplated a foray into Texas. We are not dis posed to give much credit to these statements. The legitinmate poputla tion of Mexico will sec:rcely allow themselves to be drawn into so sense less a movement. The raid of MeKen zie was not against the people of Mexico, but against a set of manrand hers who are, or ought to be, consid ered outlaws even in their own coun try. A raid into Texas, and the in iliscrimiinimte murdcr of citizens there would in no mianlner assimilate to the actioii of Col. McKenzie, because it would be the punishment of private citizens for the acts of the military which they were powerless to prevent. It would he more; it would be the murder of innocent and unoffending individuals, which would call for the quick and avenging power of our na tional goverment. It is trne probally, however, that the Indianshon the Mexican side, do contemplate such an incursion. This is corroborated by the statement of MI. lviat ,ri'en who ar'rived al Fort (jalrk on the 22i1 ultimo.
