'"Years asro a northern eentlcmen: who had made the acquaintance of a rich planter, was in vited to the hospitable borne of toe latter One day, while discussirg their apple jack, the Yankee asked his host if he had ever tastea a mint juiep. ine planter - , ... 1 mi 'I . replied i'Nb, and asked how it was made upon being informed, he saia lie wouia at once import some mint seed from the north and try the tipple. Tbe guest re marked that there was no necessity, as be had noticed some mint growing upon the plantation Delighted to learn this fact, the planter dispatched a servant for the plant, and upon the negro's return with it the julep was made, ana tne boutnerner was of course in ecstasy at the discovery, and kept his scivant continually trotting for mint. - '. ; Two years after, the northern gentle man, revisitinz . Virsinia.' called at the plantation to Bee his old friend. Inquir ing for him of a servant who answered his summons at the door,the latter shock ed the visitor with the announcement 0 the planter's death; ; i - "Dead!" exclaimed ; the gentleman "when and howr v ' v "Ole massa die about three weeks ago, was the reply; "You see 'bout two years ago' a gemmen came herefrom the north and tell ole massa how to put grass in his 1 j.ii urn. 1 t.; 11 rum, uuu uab s wai a.iiieu mm. .

"Look out for Lizzie, in blue veil, by 6 p.' m. train. Fred." - "A dollar and ' twenty-cents, iir, and sign your name in the book, sir, if you please," . said the boy from the telegraph office.; ; , . ..-.. : : ' 1 "A dollar and twenty cents sign my name in the book,' I repeated stupidly, "but this telegram isn't for me." . "Yes, sir! It is Bent to Mr. Charles Chester, at the Lakeville House, Lake ville, N. ,Y. There is no other Mr.Ches ter in Lakeville, and you always board here, so it must be you, sir, all right. The telegram just come,and it was so near si?, they sent me round with it in a hur ry. ; It has been delayed somewhere in coming to New York.but the fault wasn't at our office." Lizzie could it be Lizzie Clare, or was it one of Mrs. Stowell's handsome daugh ters? There was no time for me to idle in surmising which Lizzie I was to meet. I paid the boy, snapped the lock of my patent -valise, and drove hurriedly to. the depot, duly to "look out for Lizzie," and take the night train West. The New York Express had already arrived, and the iron horse was snorting his impatience to be off. Passengers were crowding into the cars, but where was Lizzie? . - At length, near the door of the ladies' room, , looking uneasily around her, I espied a lady wearing the identical blue veil. ' ' ' ' : : ' "; "j "Is this the 'Lizzie whom I am to meet?" I ventured ' to ask, groaning in spirit at the ignorance in which I had been left regarding aqy other cognomen. t'O, yes, and this must be Mr Chester, suppose-. - You knew me by my blue veil, did you not? Fred said, that .would be a sufficient sienal. You are very kind to take charge of me. I was fearful you would find the care of a lady a great bur den on a night journey; but Fred insisted that you would not mind it, if you took the trouble for him; so here I am, as you perceive. Are not the cars just about starting?" . ' ' - "I have time to see to your baggage,'! managed to say. : . . . "Oh, thank, you, but Fred checked it through, and bought my ticket. It is all right." .. . .... . "I knew; it was all wrong, but what bachelor of two and .thirty would decline to escort a charming Lizzie in a blue veil, thus mysteriously committed to his pro tection? .: , .... We had just a minute 'and a half in which to secure our seat3 ere the western train was off, and my companion uttered a very contented little murmur of satis- action as we slowly steamed out 01. the depot. . .. . ' . :.' .. Oh, I was so . fearlul that you would not be here to meet me, Mr. Chester, and dreaded to undertake the journey alone." v. :.- . "Is it a long journey?" with some faint hope that I might tempt her into a men tion of her destination. . "Very long," she answered demurely. But a call from, the conductor revealed the fact that the lady was going to' Cleveland. My ticket had been purchased for Cincin nati, previous to the reception of that be wildering telegram,' and I thought with some satisfaction that I could, stop in Cleveland if I pleased without any change of route.' .; As I rode along I scanned my traveling companion as closely as "I dared;-but on- y a suggestion of bright eyes, ruby hps, and a dazzling complexion,' reached me through the blue veil. ." ' : ' r "I think we have' never met until to day," 1 remarked hazarding an. obser vation which might or might not prove to be correct. Oh, no! but I have heard Fred speak of you bo frequently that I do not feel as if we could be strangers long. She smiled, ' and put up her blue veil With the veil lifted.she looked somewhat older than 1 expected. I had iancied she was seventeen, but now she appeared, to be seven-and-twenty. Yet she was bo fair, so dazzling white with eyes which matched the blue of her veil that I for got the question of her age, in specula- tins the possibility 01 her being near 8ishtea. ceatea Dy mat raaiani vision, 1 became speedily conscious oi my rougl coat and shabby "man of business as pect; and ' while 1 secretly vowed an amendment for all ruture time, in various naviculars. 1 hoped that she might not r ..... prove too observing. 'This is rather a Midden journey 01 mine, remaruea my iair companion, -my 1 1 n - it trunk, was nearly packed, and I expected to leave next Monday and travel alone; but when Fred heard that you were going to take the evening tram, he telegraphed to vou immediately, aed hurried me off." "Ah, i redl . thought 1, "it 6eems to me I have you nowl ItV just like the gay Fred Dalrymple to surprise one with such a telegram, all in the dark, and this must be his sister Lizzie. She is going to Cleveland , to .visit Robert and his wife and, Fred hearing that I was to start on . . 1 . 1 f . i my trip te-nigni, sent nis sis.er aiung under my care, without ceremony. The mystery was explained, and,with a lighter heart, I turned to the, young lady stimulated in this discovery by my pre vious determination to render myself des perately ajrreeable . "How is your dear Jenny?" suddenly inquired my companion 01 the blue veil "iy dear Jenny!" musod . I;, "0, yes sister Jane. I presume she means. "She 1 is very well," 1 replied. , .... ;"We have so often exchanged messa res with our love, thiough the medium 0 your Correspondence : with Fred, that feel quite well acquainted with that dear Jenny, Mr. Chester. . Hum! I said to myself, 'just like Fred Dalrymple, to forget to deliver his sister's messages, and then invent replies to sat isfy her questions and cover his negli- gence. "And do tell me something about that continued Fred's .sister, "lou need not be afraid of praising - it to me, for you know we ladies always take a live ly interest in babies." y t' : "1 would gladly gratify you if it were possible," I replied; "but to tell the truth I seldom take much notice of the baby race." . . ; -u . . As if I should believe you in this par ticular instance," returned my-interlocutor; "whysomebody told Sred that you were up all night on purpose to see how cunning this wonderful baby looks asleep.' "Me!" I-exclaimed in horror ... "No! ; ;You need not deny it," eaidshe. "I can understand that bashfulness con ceals your raptures. Of course it is named for you." - ; It happened that sister Jenny's young est had been christened Charlie in honor of his bachelor uncle, and so I answered that her supposition was not incorrect, "When I see Jenny I shall feol it my duty to tell her what heartless indiffer ence you have feigned in regard to . that baby, but you cannot impose upon mo," said the owner of the blue veil. "I shall acquit you of possessing any . of the old bachelor nonchalance with which ' you have to vail your interest.4' ' . . "You must not expect to manufacture a baby worshipper out of an old bach,'' I said jestingly. " : "Oh, ho; but young fathers are not such sub-savages as you would try to have me believe."' : . ; ' ; "Gracious! what can she . mean?" was my silent ejaculation; but as she did not seem inclined to rally m'e further, we fell into quiet converse on common, place themes, very much as if wc had been a half dozen years acquainted. "We are to ride all night,'-' I said final ly, "and ought I not to secure a berth for you in the sleeping car? '-1 notice that you seem very much fatigued." ' , "I am weary, but I detest those sleep ing cars." . . - - ; ,f ; "So do I the same,' was my hearty re joinder. . ..." . ..: , - , "Really and truly?" , 6he asked with some incredulity. "I fancied that I ought to take one on your account, to release you. from the' penance of sitting up in these bard seats all night." "But it would be a great pleasure to me, if you could be as comfortable, to have you accept my shawl, and my arm for a pillow, and make yourself cosy for the night."- , ; . . . .. "Do you think that Jenny .will not ob ject 'to my accepting such a service of you?" she asked sweetly. 1 -' .'V , "Certainly Jenny will not object," I assured her, and I would gladly have ad ded that Jenny would not object, on some air, future day, ..to be presented with a suter-in law wearing a blue veil, but 1 hardly dared to hazard the suggestion while our: acquaintance was still of so re cent a date. " ' . . iShe took off her bonnet a' dainty bit of millinery which I . regarded with a species ot silent awe,; ana scarcely ven tured to put up in the rack above us, Then the blue veil was tied , closely oyer her curls, and resting her head upon my shoulder, the beauty was soon asleep. ". But I, Charlie Chester, could not sleep too many visions were haunting me. Was this really bred Dalrymple s Liz zie? Would I ever see her again aft?r this journey Was ended? . And 0, most desperate and enticing speculation of all, could I ever hope to take to myself the ifc-long burden of VLooking out for Liz zie in a blue veil?" . ..." The night sped past in these delicious reveries. When .we were witnin a lew miles of Cleveland my fair charge awoke. "Do you feel rested? I inquired, r . "Oh, very much. You are exceedingly kind to take such care of me. Fred told mo that Jenny's husband would be a most desirable escort, but I find that he scarce ly told me half the truth." . .. .? .' Jenny s husband! It struck me dumb. So E was Jenny's husband, was I? "Neither shall 1 believe, after your gentleness and attention to me, that you can be as indifferent to your baby as you would try to have me think. - 'Your baby!" " : - .' The woman was adding insult to inju- rv.. i irst a wile.anfi then a naDy Destow ed on me, at five minutes notice, as . if they, were the most every-day aflairinthe world. - "I think we must be near Cleveland,". continuei' mv companion, arranging her tangled curls, and putting on her bonnet.

If he is not there, : I shall only . ask you to put me in. a coach ; and send me home unless, indeed, I can prevail upon you to stOD over one or two trains in Cleveland and visit us. My husband would be de lighted to have you. Why will you not consent to do so? . " Not Fred Dalrvmplc's sister after all! I muttered eomething in reply, I know hot-what, but she took it as a refusal to accept her hospitality, and continued: "And it you can not ana win not stay with us now. I' want you to promise me that you will come soon, , and bring dear Jennv and the baby, and make us a long Visit." . .. ; . , But the cars had stopped. ;' We had reached Cleveland.and the ensuing bus tle relieved me from the necessity of reply ing I assisted her to alight, ;and con signed her to the arms of a tall, bearded fellow, who kissed "dear Lizzio" before my eyes., ' l . - " "And thia is Mr. , Chester Fred's friend; you know4 Harry. Harry rolled bis eyes around, but evi ''''-,. dently did cot recognize me, and said nothing, f . , ; "Fred received a letter frcm Mr. Ches ter,' saying he would be in Lakeville on business on Tuesday, and would, take charge of me, if I would msct him at the evening train; so 1 red telegraphed to him to look out for me, and here I am" vtry much obliged for his care and escort." "But where is he all this time?" asked the husband, impatiently. : - -;' ,1 "Hang the .blue veil. ; There is, soma mistake here," I exclaimed, pulling out tne telegram . i as a voucher for mo am Charles Chester, of Lakevilie,at your service; I reside in Lakeville, ' and I re ceived 'this dispatch yesterday..

" . They started. They read the telegram. The oddity of the mistake bewitched us all, and they took me home with them to laugh it over, when they found that Jen ny was awaiticg me at the journey's end. And as ''all's well that ends Trell," let me tell you that my young wife to-day is Lizzie's sister, and equally partial to a blue veil. ; ... ; . .

X , The richest affair of the season came off this morning at the office of Justice Starr. In order to give the' reader a fuPi insight into the case, it: is necessary to start at the Mayor's Court, in which tbe case of an unhappy pair, of old darkeys was brought up for adjudication. : It ap peared that the venerable" old couple, had been living together as man and wife, but, as she said, "widout de circumference ob law." They brought a voluminous string of . charges against each other, and taxed the Mayor's patience beyond endurance. The Court being unable to make head or tail of the affair, turned the - case over to the Freedmen's Bureau'. They shot out for "de Buro," and the trial was at once taken up. After hearing alf the facts in tho case, that tribunal decided that they should be married forthwith, and placed them under guard,: sent bride and bride groom to the office of Justice Starr-for that functionary to carry-out the sentence of the Bureau.- When they got to the Esquire's office, the guard - simply stated to Justice Starrs "Here is a couple for you to marry.1' "All right," replied the humorous Justice, and the guard, not having an invitation to tho wedding, re tired, ' :-.V': O ' ..." ' ; v " "Just step in the back room," said the Justice, "and I'll eplice you in grammat ical style and apple order." - The couple followed, him to the ' room in the rear of the front office, and after . . i - j . i? ' a' i i ; . m.: ' ' . explaining tne uuiies ana omigauons, re- quested them to join nanas. Unde "1 isn t gwine to do it. 1 doesn't want to hab nufiin to do wid dat nigger." " 1 ; Groom "I isn't 'ticular 'bout marryin' wid de gal. I neber lubbed de wench. The protest opened the Lsquire s eyes like "two full moona in the harvest.'fle asked what was the meaning of it, and justhen a representative of the Bureau stepped in, and informed tbe Justice that .1 -J -J l. . W 1 J ..- iney were orucreu me i' ree uiuuu s Court to be married, and he caiae to see the sentence executed. With this understanding Justice Starr told the ;'happy couple" to join hands, which they did after much persuasion: ; Justice "Do you take the man. to be your wedded husband, to . love,' honor, obev. ect. . . ' ' Bride "No I doesn t not much I doesn't 1 wouldn't hab a four acre lot fall ob sich trash." ; ' ' r'r r;' Freedmen's BareJu "Yes we' do, Squire Wo take him go on with the ceremo- nv. . .

She 'asked him what name she should announce, and he, wish ing to take the ladies by surprise replied Amicus, (a friend.) The girl seemed at first a little puzzled, but. quickly regain ing her composure, she in the blandest manner possible, observed J' what kind of a cusi did you say, sir?" ; ";, " Our friend was embarrassed for a mo ment, but .recovering, handed her his card, and vewed never to use J atiu to a servant girl again. AN ESSAY 'ON GALS ar icsabod Mt. Eddttsu: My subjeck is Gals, and in treatiu on 'era I shall endeavor to: be as imminent and perspective a possible, considerin all the circumstances. ri - Gala aro of meany 'and various kind's; for cx : martingale, prodigals, femail gals, and tomboys, But it is of the fe mail gal I shall speak raon especially in this ossa, as I've had more experience with this sort than any other variety par ticularly aforeand sense I staid to Sally Maria, ?hat new beafvtha wide known tfatce oBplt.k5., ' Qila cr of much and di-fierent sizes, so you can't judge one tin 'era by tho calico they carry deceivin to the eye and not very 's hefty. They are also of dilereat ages. ; I've nown 'em to go ca high as 37 and still remain gals to all intents and purposes, but they usually r?nge from 17 to 25, of which ages it is not difficult to find full blown speci mens. , '. - - . ; : . They are pretty well distributed over tho country, but rather skarso in Oregon and Califomy, where a ship load was sent the other day to supply the market; the home demand pin't so good as 'twas afore the war, but 'tis thought to be im provin lately. Their occupation consists mostly of spinnin street yarn, croshaying, readies stories - and talkia about the young men.' Somo.oa 'em have'heen known to take holt and help their mothers do the work bout the house, but they're all spoke for.' Of sich was Sally Maria aforesaid. . . xnere s a grate diaerenco in em, cor- din to the time o'dav vou happen to see 'em. ' If it's in the mornin, they look cross and disholothy, and like a broom stick diessed up into a' meal bag. Rea son why, is causo they ain't fixed up, and no man, unless he's married, has any right to look at 'em till afternoon when they git fixed up with their flammydiddles onto 'em.' 'I neglerted to state that they vary in culiir cordin to ciscumstances, and like the kamelyo'a are red or white ' au.it- the occasion. - Thep are very changeable in temperature, ranging all he way from 6ulky to clever and smihn. The last degree can be reached most any a bey have queer notions bout the close they wear; have their: dresses short to the top. and long to the bottom so as to ketch up all the old hoops and sigar stumps and to keep the sidewalks clean. and they wear muffs to' keep their hands warm, -and shoes with paper soles on em.: They don't thinkiso much of their own hair as they used to, when they car ried it round in little bags on their shoul ders; but now they wear catacombs and folderols made of other wimmins' hair etched over from foreign countries where they raise it for. sale and shear 'em reg- ar like we do sheep. What they wear em for hasn't yet -been discovered I asked Sally Maria once, and she . said it was none o my. biz, so l naterally con cluded it wasn't.' They; like to wear things like the other eext, and have suc ceeded In various cases except in pul ing off .their shoes with 'a boot jack theirein they faled. But they don't 6wear ner chaw terbacker, which is a remarka- :e fact considerin their ' hankerin . arter the fashions, and the. bad habits set afore One singular fact about 'em, in many cases, Is after they git to be about nine teen they lon't grow ho older for several years Don't no why, butspose it's their nater. . '. . , . r Take 'em all round they're queer crit ters. They most allers say no when they mean yes, and cry i when , they're tickled. The best way to get 'em to do a . thing is to tell 'era thev shan't, and the onlv way to drive 'cm is by coaxing, and the better they like a feller the wus they talk- about him.. The clever, ones crow up and gits married, and the ugly ones grow up to be old maids who keep pet tom-cats and take care other peoples babies. 1'inally, gals are a , great institution, which we couldn't . well dispense with. i hey re handy to have round to-picnics parties and 6ich like, and to play copen hagin with.
