A prettier' foot, a gayer heart, a more dimpled face, or a smarter form,, never bounded so liehtly over the earth they graced, as' did those, of Maria Lobbs, the old saddlers 'daughter.- There was a ro guish twinkle in her sparkling eyes, that would have made its way to far less sus ceptible bosoms than that of Nathaniel Pipkin: and there was such , a Joyous sound in her inerry laugh, that the sternest misanthrope must have smiled to hear it. Even bid Lobbs" himself; in the very height of his ferocity, couldn't resist the coaxing of his. pretty daughter; and when she, and her cousin Kate an arch, impudent-look ing, bewitching little person marie a dead set upon the old man together, as, to say the truth, they very often did, he could have refused them nothing; even had they asked for a portion, of the countless and inexhaustible- treasures,'- which' were hidden from the light.'iti the iron safe.'"- ' Nathanitl PPpkiii's heart 'beat high within him, when he saw this enticing little couple some hundred -yards before him, one summer's. evening, in ihe very field in which he had ninny a time strolled about till night-time, and pom.'eren on' the beatify of ,Maria "Lobh'sM " But though he; had often' thought then, how briskly he1 would walk' hMo Maria Lobbs rind tell Iter of his pdsioii if: heeould only mete her; he felt; how that she was unexpectedly before itim, all the blood in bis hdy'mounting to his f.ii ei niniiifestlytiy ti p great' detriment off bitv legsy - which Vh-pHve'd !f! their iismil pbrtbjii, ''trembled' ben'vatM him?7.'

Upon this the .merry ; laughter f .Maria' Lobb rang through the calm '"' ven i ng ai r without seem i n g to d ist tiro it, though; it had such a pleasant sound--nd the wicked little cousin laughed more immoderately than before,, and Nathaniel Pipkin blushed deeper than ever. At length, Maria Lobbs being more strenu ouslv urged by the love-worn little man, turned a ay her head, and whispered her cousin to say, or at all events Kate did sav, that she felt much honored by Mr. Pipkin's addresses, that . her hand and heart were at her father's disposal, but nobody could be insensible to Mr. Pip kin's merits. As this was said with much rravity, and as Nathaniel Pipkin walked ' honie with Maria Lobbs, and struggled for a Tcis;s at parting, he went to bed a happy man, and dreamed all night long, of softening old Lb bins, opening the strongbox, and marrying Maria. . The next day, Nathaniel Pipkin saw old Lobbs go out upon h:s old grey poney, and after a great many signs at the win dow from the wicked little cousin, the ob- jeet and meaning ot wiiicti ne count oy no means understand, the . bony apprentice with the thin legs came, over to say that his master wasn't corning home all night, and that ih'? ladies expected Mr. Pipkin to tea, at six o'clock' precisely. How the lessi i ns": we re got through that day, neither Nathaniel Pipkin nor -any of his pupils knew any more than 'you do; but 'hey were got through sonn how, and. af ter the boys had gone, Naihaniel Pipkin jook till full six o'clock 10 dress himself to his satisfaction: not that it took long toj select" the garmeuts he should wear, inas much as he hadjio choice about lheinat :er, but ihe putting them on to the best advantage, and touching them up previ ously, was a tusk of no inconsiderable diluctitty or importance. - Tkere was a very mug little party, ron sistii g of Maria- Lobbs and her cousin Kate, aud three or lour romping, good humored, rosy-cheeked girls. Na'haniel Pipkin had occular demonstration of the fact, that even the juniors of old Lobb's treasures were not exaggerated. ; There were the real solid "silver tea-pot, creanv ewt r. and sugar-basin, on the table, and real silver spoons to stir the tea with, and real china cups to drink" it out of, and plates of the same, to hold the caks and toast in. The o-ily eyesore in the whole place, was another, cousin of Maria Lobb's, ami brother of Kate, whom Maria Lobbs failed "Henry," and who seemed to keep Maria Lobbs all to himself up in one corner of the table.. It's a delight ful ihing to see affection in families, but it may be carried rather too far, and Nathan-1 iel Pipkin conld not help thinking that Maria Lobbs must be very particularly fond of her relations, if she paid such at tention to all of them as to this individual cousiu. After tea, too, when the wicked little r cousin . proposed a game at blind man's buff, it somehow or other happened that Nathaui 1 Pipkin was nearly always blind, and whenever he laid his baud upon the male cousin, he was sure to find that Maria Lo'ibs was not far off. Aud though the wicked little cousin and the other girls pinched' him, and pulled his hair, and pushed chairs in his way. and all sorts of thiugs, Maria Lobbs never seemed to come hear him at all: and once once Na thaniel Pipkin could have sworn he heard the sound of a kiss,, followed by a faint re monstrance from Maria Lobbs, and a' half- suppressed laugh from her female friends. All this was odd very odd aiid there is no saying what Naihaniel Pipkin might or might not have done,, in consequence, if his thoughts had not been suddenly di rectcd into a new channel. .: T'e: circumstance which directed his thoughts into a new channel was a loud knocking at the street door, and the per son who made this loud knocking at the street door,' was no other than old Lobbs himself, who had unexpectedly returned, and was hammering away, like a colTiu maker: for he -wanted' his supper. The ularming intelligence was no sooner com muitiealed by the . bony apprentice with 4he ih'ni ; legs, than the girls tripped up stairs to Maria Lobbs bed-room, audi the male -cousin": and :Nathauiel Pipkin were thrust into a couple of closets in the sit' tiiig-tooiii, for want -of -any better places of concealuientjuiid when' Mai ia Lobbs aiid the. wicked little ;couilu . had stowed 1 hi iu uwiiy,;and put the:.tooin , to rights, th'-y opened the street. door to old.Lobt) w ho had neyer. left off -kuocking siucv he tiist l.egan. .: :. :' ,-hA s .!.' !o.:a '. -i Now it did unfortunately happen' that old .Lobbs.-bting.. .very; , hungry; was jybh st'rousj cross.; .: Nathajnel uiSpkiu'; could hear, him growling a ay likn an. old pias iitf vviih a bore tliroat; and whenever, the unfortunate' apprentice: wiih ihe;thju legs caiue -into . the -s room, .so -surely , did bid: Lobbs coin ii)ence ; sxyeuriug ntuhim in: iuost-1 Sr icetiie aud ferocious.tuamvtr; thoig,h ,appreutly .:WUh no other-.end or objuct, than.;vhatt ofeatiiig. his bosoai by ihe Uicdiafgo pf a few superfluous, joaths. At'; length sonic supperj which had been wafmtng up, was placed on the table, aud ihten :oji Lobbs fell to,.: in. regular - style; aiid, having made clear work of it in- 0 um'ekissed Jiuiaughttraand demanded his pipe:' v .'I;-. .V VU;'b;I--''- -..Nature, had placed Nathaniel Pipkin's knees .in very close jaxta-position, , but when he heard old Lobbs demanding his pipe, they knocked together, as if they were going to rethice each other to pow der; for, depending from a couple of hooks, in the very closet in which he stood, was a large bro'-vn-Meinmed, silver-bowled pipe, which pipe he himself had seen in the mouth of old Lobbs, regularly every after noon and evening, for the last live years. The two girls went down stairs for the pipe, and up stairs for the pipe, and every where but where they knew the pipe whs, and old Lobbs stormed away meanwhile, in the most wonderful manner. At last hs thought of the closet, and walked up to it. It was of 110 use a little man like Nathaniel Pipkin pulling the door iu wards, when a great strong fellow like old Lobbs was pulling it outwards. Old Lobbs just gave it one tug, and ojen it Hew, disclosing Nathaniel Pipkin standing holt upright inside, and shaking wiih ap prehension, from head to foot. " B'ess us! what an appalling look old Lobbs gave him, as he dragged him out by the collar, tfnd held him at arm's length. . "Why. what the devil doyou want here?' said old Lobbs, in a featful voice. Nathalie! Pipkin could make no reply, so old Lobbs shook him backwards and forwards, for twoor three minutes, by way of arranging his ideas '"or him. "What do you want here?' roared Lobbs. 1 suppos'e.yitt have come afier ray daugh ter, now.' ' . ' Old Lobbs merely said this as a sneer: for he did not believe that mortal presunip lioti could have carried Nathaniel Pipkin so far. What was Ins indignation, when that poor man replied "Yes, I did, Mr. Lobbs I did come after your daughter. I love her, Mr. Lobb ' ' ; ' ' ' ' '"Why, you snivelling, wry-faced little villain,' grasped old Lobbs, paralysed at the attrocioiis confession; 'what do you mean by that? Say this to my face? Damme, I'll throttle 3 tu.' It is by no means improbable that old Lobbs would have carried this threat into execution, iu the excess of his rage, if hi ami had not been stayed by a very unex pected apparition, to wit, the male cousin, who, stepping out of his c oset, and walk irg.up to old Lobbs, said- ; "I cannot allow this harmless person, Sir, who has been asked here, in some girlish frolic, to take upon himself, in a very noble manner, the fault (if fault it is) which I am guilty of, and ready to avow love your daughter, Sir; and came here for the purpose of mtetii.g her.' Old Lobbs opened his eyes very . wide at this, but not wider than Naihaniel Pip kin. , ...... "You did?' said Lobbs, at last finding breath to speak. "I did. VAud I forbade you this house, long "You did, or I hould not : have been here, clandestinely, to-uight.V : I am sorry to ncot d it of old Lobbs, but 1 think he would have struck ihe cousin, il his pretty daughter, with her bright eyes swimming in tears, had not clung to his arm. ' Don't stop him, Maria, said the young man: if he has the wi.ll to strike me, let him. -I would not hurt a hair of his grey head, for the riches of the world.' . . ! The old man cast down his eyes at this reproof, and they met those of his daugh ter. I have hinted once or twice before, that they we're' very black eyes, and, though they were tearful now, their influence. was by no' means les'semd. . O.d LoUbs turn-r ed his head away, ! as if to avoid .being per suHrtd'ly ihem, when, as fortune woidd have it; he encountered the" face of the wicked iittle cousin, who, half afraid for her brother, and half laughing at Nathan-, iel Pipkin, presented as bewitching au ex pression of countenance, with a touch of slyness ilijit too, as any man, old or young, need look n pbii. She drew her arm coa x ingly through the old lnan's, and . whis pered tbmethiiig in his ear; aiid do . what he wouldold Lobbs couldn't help break ing out into a smile, while a ,tear stole down his cheek, at the same time. . ' Five minutes after this, the girls, were brought dbwu fibin the led-rbuni with a great deal of giggling and modesty; and while the young people were making them 1 s jives perfectly happy, old Lobbs got down his pipe, and 6'nokeu it: ana it was a re markable 'circumstance about. that partic ular pipe of tobacco, that tt was the most 1 ' .' .1 .i. i!.. i..r..i ' :.:."i...' ....j ..

On motion, the President appointed a Committee to draft resolutions, composed of the following persons,, viz:. Messrs. Jus. Smith, J. Cool Griffith, W. E Stamp, W. Liun Reed and A. Lash. During the absence of the Committee, neat and appropriate speeches were de livered by Profs.

Afier the above addresses, commendatory remarks were made by students, during which time the Committee returned,' aud offered the following resolutions, 'which' were unanimously adopted: : . Wheueas, Our much esteemed instructor, Mr. .1.

Kiss a girl deliberately sensible all. the time of the, great duty you are performing but remember also that a kiss t o be en joyed in its full . flavor, should be taken fresh, like champaign: just from the flask Ah! then you get it in all its airy spirit- uelle raciuess.

On application being made to the Amer ican Government .they, .with a most land ible zeal for the , promotion of this great national work, expressed their readiness to render to the projectors of the Allan tic Telegraph 'every possible assistance; and the Sacretnry of the United Stales Navy, Mr. Dobbin, courteously placed at their disposal the Arctic' vessel most fitted for the purpose, and a. selection of officers whose known ta'euis and expe rience iu. this particular department of nautical cieuce leaves nothing to be de sired. Lieut. Berrysnau, who had already once taken soundings across- the Atlantic, was appointed to command ; this expedi tion, withfthe object of repeating aud .ea- birrriiKr his former ob:erv.tioiis: Lieut. Strain, whose zeal and energy i:i com- m.iiwi r th niM-;i.ni TiUvivti Tv-rnpfl itinn as well as his love for, aiid attattimeiits in, science.qualified him for this ouice;aud3ir Mitchell, as acting master, who had ,'ac cbhipauied, Lciut.litrryniau on the former': occasion: these, with a full complement of;""."

Not a single rock bus- beenJ met with, not a particle of gravel "or sand has be-n brought up, but-it appears 'as if nature had provided a bed "soft as a snow-' bank,", to use Maury's own words, for the express purpose, of receiving a telegraphic cable. . , Lieut. Berrvmatt says that he is' satis fied that the lead, with the sounding ap paratus, has frequently buried itself ten or fifteen feet in this. soft, material, aud he doubts aot that the 'cable " will likewise sink, and imbed itself in a similar manner! Tiie greatest depth attained has been two thousand and seventy fathom (about: two and one third miles); but perhaps th most remarkable, and at the same time the most satisfactory result, is the perfect confirma tion which these ' soundings ; give of the opinion expressed by Lieut, Maury, as to the-existence ot a great ; Cat? or. level: at the bottom of the ocean, unparalleled by anything on .the 'surface Of the earth", and whieh he : proposed to name ''The .Tele- graph Plateau?. Fbrmbre than thirteen hundred. miles the hed of the, Atlantic, -in ihe direct line of pur . track, ? is fouud -by these soundings to present almost; un broken level plain. Nature has thus placed no obstacle in the Way of this uu- uertakiug, winch may not, by cautious per severance, bo overcome; nay rather (if we except the enormous leugth of cable ,w hioljr will be required,) it would seem that the Hue to be followed by the Atlantic cable presents absolutely fewer engieerinsr dif ficulties than the shorter ; route ( though more com plex; from thenati're of the bot tom) ou which the Mediterranean. cable j must be laid. ..tj,:,. ,,.,.1 As many of your readers niay lie inter ested in the nature"' of the" process and mechanism by which V these soundings are obtained,; 1 wjli briefly describe; it, inclos iug you at the eame time,, an .illustrative Sketch. . . . r, .. , . .... ... . , . .. .
