On Top of a Chimney A TURILLIn SKETCH, As I wai leaving the yard one even ing t trudge back to the rooms we were forced to put up with since I came tj London in order to get better wages, was called into ihe office b) the fore man. , ;" 'W'hat's your present job, Lindsay?" he a-ked. and I told him . ', t "Humph! that can stand over fot a day or two. can't it? Stubbs has faHen ill asjain, and you must take his place.5' I did'i't care to be shifted before I'd finished what I was aboqt,but n jonrirey man biick-layer,witii a wife and cldldren looking to bim tor bread, cannot- affoAt' to be too particular, and ' so L held ray tongue. . ; . 'You must go to Coot brewery to morrow mormug and finish that chim ney," the foreman told me. He gave me a jew more directions besides, and then went his way, while I went mine,. not very well pleased at the prospect before me. ' : . ; . ' i I suppose I never ought tf , have fol lowed the trade, for though I'd gained myself a good character as a steady workman, I bad never been ah! e to over come a horror at being perched at any great height. In the country, where the buildings were low, I managed Well enough, .but iu this great city there were roofs on which I could not stand with out this dread oppressing me, nor look down without feeling as though some thing below was tempting me to flin myself over and end at once the misera ble sensation which no effort of mine could shake off. . This huge chimney the foreman hart ordered me to finish was reckoned' one of the highest and best built shafts in London. We were all proud of the job, which had been carried on so far with out a single mishap; but I had been ear nestly hoping that I might not be sent to ir.and it wasn't till the workmen had got almost to the top that I began to breathe a bit more freely, and trust that if would be finished without any help of mine. Once at home with the youngsters' merry prattle ' in my ears, 1 forgot the uneasy feelings about the morrow's job; but the moment I dozed -ff to sleep it came back upon me in a hideous dream, I thought I was falling down, down! and just as the crash of my body strik ing the earth seemed inevitable, I woke up with a start to find myself bathed in a cold perspiratidn and tt enabling ' In every limb. .' ; " . ' No more settled sleep visited mv pil low that night, and it wa3 a relief when the booming of the clocks dispelled my frightened visions, and warned me that it was time to face a reality. The morning was . bitterly coVLand boisterous ; scarcely a oul was ' to be seen in the deserted streets at that early hour, and the dull thud, thud,' of my footsteps sounded mournfully in 1 Tthe stillness reigning around " At last the great' chimney loomed in sight, and gaz ing np at its immense height, I shivered at the thought of being on top of it,and forced Uo look down on the sickening depth below. ' -: ' If it had not been for the name of the thing I ehould have gone backv but , the thought of Bessie . and the children spurred me on ; so, buttoning my jacket tightly around me.I began to ascend the staging. In my journey upward I nassed many costly curtained windows, and 're member thinking, rather enviously, how hiee it must be to be rich nd sheltered brt snch a morning from the biting cold in a warmly furnished bed-room ' , Some fellows wouldn't mind the least bit if they were perched : on the top of St. Paul's oh the coldest of Mornings, provided yotl Supplied them well with beer; but I wasn't overstrong limbed any more than J . could pretend to .be strong-minded ; so what to them was nothing, to me was almost death .itself The higher I went the more intptpe, the cold appeared to be, and my finseii became quite numbed by the hoar frost that was clinging to the sides and spokes of the ladders. :, After a while .1 stood on the few boards forming the stage on.the .summit of the ; ehaitr ,and,: giving .one glance 'downward, my blood turned colder than it was already, as I realized tbe immense depth to the yard .beneath. .! Giving myself a shake to get rid of the dizzy sensation that came over me, and unhooking from the pulley the tub of mortar which my matet waiting, lie low, had sent tap, I at once began my solitary work. ; r ... r . 1 bad been .hard at it for more than an hour, and was getting a bit more recon ciled to my position cheering myself as 1 whistled ana worked, witu the thougt that each brick I hid was bringing me nearer,. to a finish, . when all at once a fiercer and colder blast than before came shrieking and tearing around the Ochira ney I was nearly overthrown, and iu the endeavor to recover myself, I tilted the board of mortar from off the edge of the shaft on to mv frail standing place. In a second, to my intense horror, I felt the boards and all that were on them gliding away' with me from the chimney, ana m a tew moments 1 s:iouia nave been lying a msngled corpse below! if a . nau not succeeded in flinging my hi m over and into the hollow' of the shai'tj where, as the scaffold and its load of bricks Crushed downward, I was left hanging, with certain death awaiting me the moment I loosened my . hold. My first impulse was tolhiowmv other baud oVe' and driw my body np so that I could lie partially acrassthe top or the shaft. ' In this I was success fill. - and " ronlinnoil tn lwlnnnn ttivcAIT half in the chimoey and half out There for sometime I could only cling with frenzied desperation, praying ear nestly to be saved from the horrible death threatening me; but aUast'I summoned courage to peer cautiously over the out side of the' shaft. . -n.-.i .- r.ot a bit of scaffolding remained within many vards of nie and that but the poles, with a few "boards clinging to them and there was nothing, to break my inn snouia 1 quit ray Hold bhuddertngly I drew my head over tne suart, for there the darkness hid my danger, while" to gaze on the scene with out brought the old feeling of being dragged down bark to me in full force. Then 1 begarn to think of the wife and little ones whom 1 had left snug in bed, uiid bitter tears came into my eves as wondered how they would live if I were taken from them. The thought brought tue back to more selfUh ones, and 1 kept asking myatir: "Must I die? How long can I hold on with this fierce wind begirting me ? Is there no hope? Will no one, seeing how I am placed, strive to rescue me ?'' Again I turned my eyes downward In the court yard of the brewery and in the street below peoplejwere fast collect-. ing;windowswere being thrown open, and women and children, shrieking and sob bing, were gazing from them at me. The crowd below thickened, running hither and thither. A large kite fluttered nearer How I tried to' steady myself with one hand, that I might grasp the "cord with the other as soon as it was within each, Wmew -vividlyvljfforeuiejijovtttit. nevr did come withiu ' reach, a gust of the breeze carrying it far away, and dashing it to the ground. An hour passed,and though still cling iug to the brick work; it was almost u n consciously, . for cold snd fear had so worked upon me that I became quite dazed, and the chirnneys, the people,the confused noise from the streets, and my own perilous positionjseemed to be jura bled together in a tangle which I could not put straight. While in this half-sen-sitle state I ' heard a voice shout my name But it had to be repeated twice before I could rou.se myself sufficiently to heed what was said. 4 "Bill; Bill Lindsay! cheer up, mate! help is coining !" were the words which rumbled np the shaft After this there was a pause for some minutes, and scarce able to control my czcitcment,I tried to think how this help could come. Then there was a warning shouted to me to keep my head back, followed ' by a whizzing; hissing noie, and : looking within the shaft, I saw a bright shower of goldeu sparks lighting np the well-like hole, and knew that a rocket bad been fired But it strnck tbe brick-work in its as ccut, arid failed to reach me,so that once more I was left to wait and hopf, until the voice again shouted for me to keep clear A moment alter a fiery tail of sparks shot upward Tar above me, and an earnest "Thank God !" came from my heart as I grasped a thin cord that fell by ray side as the rocket descended. ' r r: ; ; By this communication a stouter and strbnger rope, was sent me. But my dan ger was not over, for in my weakened and numbed state it was a perilous slide down it. : At - first I could scarcely brace my nerves np sufficiently t launch myself over the brick-work,aad my head turning lrzzy, for a moment I thought myself gone; but conquering the feeling by a great effort, ' I slowly descended until about half the distance was accomplished Then the horrid fear seized me,:"What if he rope shonld break, or not be se curely fastened jf" and dreading each sec ond that tny fcarsj woiild be fulfilled,- i n feverish haste I slid on.; r.-,-V: ' . When within a few yards from the bot tom,' overtasked ' nature would bear tbe strain no longer; and, loosening my hold, I dropped into the arms of those who had been breathlessly watching my de scent . ' ,y-. ' - Other hands than mine finished the shaft in calmer weather, nd on a more securely fastened scaffold ; and I, well cared for by the best' of little, wives, 60on got over the shock of my acci dent; but as- I go to and fro to my tfork, and look itp to the huge chimney; I often recall witba shudder the hour when I clung to it3; summit, counting the moments, each one of 'which seem ed to bring me nearer to a dreadful death.': -: ' - ''.

THE EARLY BAR 1ST OUIO. lenry Stanberry'i First Case aad First Veei At the meeting of the Cincinnati bar association, on Tuesday night last, Hon. Henry Stan bery gave the following in teresting reminiscence: . 2- "., He began by sating that it was in the month of June, 1825, that his first client entered his first appearance. - He was id the office of. our fj iend Ewint-, (pointing to the bust of Mr- Ewing, whicu adorns the walls,) in Lancaster, Ohio. -While sitting there a farmer, came in for a law- ver. lle nan (wen admitted 10 . the bur ir May.: -About the .middltfdf the mon'tS 1 1if aritt'fhertj 0eHouk( Viirersf aoineift to allude to that event in bis life, to et- plain how he came to be in MrEwiag's office.) Gen Goddard, of ZanesviKe.bad gone down to Marietta for him to : pass an examination before the Supreme Court there. ' ' His examination took place in the evening before Judge Bur nett, Judge; Hitchcock, David Putnam. Gen. Goddard and Mr. Ewing He be lieved that there never was a more shin ing group seen tdacther in his State, eit her on bench or bar." He would say that he passed the examination well, for bis friend Goddard, with whom he had studied being the youngest one of the committee propounded the questions He knew bow to examine him. He was mighty well prepared, for Goddard had posted him on contingent- remainders, and then -he quizzed him on that. (Laughter ) They (he and Goddard) next day started home on horseback. Mr Ewing was' going to Gallipolis, while he and Goddard were to return to Zant-sville, their home, and so they rode over as far as Athens, in, company. It was the custom in those times for the awyers to ride the circuit, following the circuit around.and they generally prided tbemielves on having good horses. That morning as they started out from Mari etta,Judge Burnett remarked to Mr. Ew ing that his horse was scarcely such a one as he ought to ride, and Ewing un dertook to defend the animal as we 11 as he could. They parted, however, and the trio rodt out in company...; When, they got out a mile or two Mr. Ewing wondered what .vas the ' matter with his horse.
