KATUN. ,Ye ; who, fatigued with, the tiresome monotony of single life, and weary of the frivolities of courtship, c.tek tha myste rious labyrinths of matrimony, give eyes awhile, and atlentiveness, while the tale is told of , Deacon Isebug, and his charmer, Betsy Spoqlcow. Abed Nosebug, defOijif the principal meeting house in Parsnipville, lost hiare iniiikuble wife Martha. , Martha is a He brew name for bitterness, and a remark ably bitier cud she proved for him to chew, through seventeen years of bitter tighta and fancies. It whs a wonder how Nosebug ever chanced io choose her; for Ulie deacon prided himself upon his knowl edge of phynlognornyj and Martha's small. muddy and censorious sye, together with her uneasy manners, shaip tones, quick .....i i,..i..i.,.t,. c. .,..i.. 1,1 i f.

'he man who should marry her waa: "Here a rue lor you, and rt lor mel But the deacon was a man of strong faith. He ran the risk, trusted. Io luck, andjiiHriied; and found that fortune does not always lavor the brave. - She died at last, however; for at the end of his ordeal of seventeen years, Martha, tired of har- lllli nci wwii njii.uniDuuAimuicu. uuo ,d d cJ elv ou( ai,j r inir her own why, trave up and died, blie the deacon now had a chance of some res pite trora the bottle, to which he had des perately resorted for oblivion of his do mestic woes. 4 He improved the chance by slow de grees, and having got rid of his two fatal dailj companions his two evil spirits his natural spirits improved and he be came far more companionable. A natural consequence was, that, like all other men thus unbewitched, be paid more attention to his personal appearance; and his more spruce costume and apparent efforts to please, excited the remark, among his tellow church-members, particularly the female portion, that he was on the look-out for a Mrs. Nosebug No. 2. As this. -suspicion gathered strength, and the deacon's nose waxed paler at the tip, a sensation on Ins account was created among the marriageable .women of about his age. He was tin fair standing in church and, society, and had enough property to keep a wife comfortable, and none Uuew mis petter man jsiiss seisy Spooliow, who had for forty ears been wandering about the garden of life, with out entering the bowers of matrimony. She had long wiined for a ticket of ad mission, but no man bad been gallant or daring enough to give her one which might or might.not have proceeded from her three prominent traits indolence, art fulness, and a termagant disposition.. "I am determined to try for the dea con!" nhe resolved. "1 have heard that he prides bimslf upon his knowledge of women a sure sign that he is the more liable to be mistaken; - He will soon be gin to. feel lonesome without his custom ary companion, and the more likely to enter the holy state than if he had always been a bachelor. I will join his church, and get acquainted with him right off." . Miss Spoolcow did so, and threw her self in the deacon's way as often and as adroitly as possible; while he, unconscious man, little dreaming of the net which was spead for him, an in no hurry to be mar ried again, exulted in his long-sighed-for liberty, and looked with an air of the most lofty independence upon all female crea tion. ' ' ' '! " . "I am determine'd" to take my leisure pick,'.' he i reflected, "at all events, , I have bad experience .enough,goodness knows, to enable me to make a wise choice the second time, 'should the second time ever come. ,1 haven't mourned seventeen vests for nothing." But the burnt child does not always dread the fire. Hope and self-reliance will keep singing: of better look next time, and mortals often give heed tothem.' And the deacon, after a few months, found his liberty more lonesome than luxurious, just as Betsy npooicow natt-anticipated : POMERQ YjTUEtjD A OCTOBER 4,1859. . !

I often wonder that women will get married, when they can live so happy without.'' ' "Ahem! Don't want to get married!" thought the deacon, more interested. "She's one of a thousand." - But it's owing to her sweet disposition, I suppose. But perhaps," he said aloud, "as you are of such an aotive turn of mind, the duties of married life would make you still happier." "It might be," she simpered, in a faint voice: "but I have always thought that 1 could do enough to please a hus band, and if I should dissatisfy him in anything'' if would break mV neartmy leeluiffs are so mud and tender.' What a contrast to Mrs. Nosebug!';' I thought the deacon. ' If I was dissatis fied with anything, she'd hrfve broken my head, or scolded me out of doors. Some husbands are more exacting than others" he replied. "It isn't every man that is fit to be a husband." "Nor every woman who jsjit to be a wife," she rejoined. "Though I never mean to be married, yet if I were a wife, I should regard my husband as my lord and master; his wishes to be consulted be fore mine, in nil thing's; indeed, I don't see how I could have a wish which was different from his. 1 have always looked upon man as a superior , creature, Mr. Nosebug; and the very thought of quar reling with a husband, as some wives do, always makes me feel faint. I hadn't the pleasure of knowing your Wife, Mr. Nose bug; but I have always had the idea that she must have been something next to an angel mild and heavenly as a wife should be." ' : 'Ahem! We are all imperfect, Miss Spoolcow,' and should'nt boast of what we have had. All is for the best, J suppose, and it wouldn't be exactly right forme to wish her back." "I appreciate your feelings, deacon: You feel as if it would be hard to get an other one like her." "It would be extremely hard," thought he, "if I' should. Yes, Miss Spoolcow, when I think of her I feel as if I never wanted to marry again." ' "A single life has its joys," replied she. "As for me, I find great pleasure in con stantly employing myself for good pur poses. I have often been told that mar riage ia apt to make most women idle and frivolous and even dissipated. What a horrid thing it must be to lose one's inno cent domestio habits! '. As for me, 1 have enough" add she fixed her eyes signifi cantly upon the deacon "quite enough to support myself and the estates which have been left me by ahem! that is whatever property I am worth,l feel that I am such a yielding person, that a hus band would easily get all I have from me," . . ' i "Her estates! Aha!" thought Nose bug, "then she has got properly, some where. That's the reason, perhaps, why she's in no hurry to get married. Now Martha hadn't a red when I married her. Perhaps I've found a mare's nest, after all. A true man,- Miss Spoolcow," he replied, "regards a woman, not for what she has got, but for what she is." , fTyend doubt," murmured the wily spinster, mnocenily; "but T. could so easily be deceived by a man. I am so unaccus tomed to the arts . of the world, that I tremble'all over,' sometimes. , A husband could do anything, and I not know it. And if I did, I should never bave spirit enough to resent it."

And they parted each with a connubial future looming gloriously in view. : "Am I dreaming?" exclaimed Miss Spoolcow, giving the work a kick, as soon as he had gone. i "She called me dear deacon, ejacuiaten Deacon NoseT)U!T. ttoinsf home to ponder how muclj property the angel was likely to bring with, her. f Those were three awful days that inter vened; each was afraid of losing the other.

Some meddling woman will dissuade him. If she does, Parsnipv.lle shall be too hot to hold her?" i , ' Somebody will tell her how I used to drink," groaned the deacon..' "How long the time seems.'.' - Restless were the days and sleepless the nights which divided Abed from his Betsy; and they actually grew thin in the interval. Even the fire fled from Us won ted place at the end of Nosebug's nose, and liia appearance was much improved thereby when, at the end ol the tedious threes dayslie reappeared Deiore juis Spoolcow.

It was a shiny" sum mer Sunday morning; and the Dirds ot Parsnipville sang with wiiisual sweetness in the ears of the trustful couple, as .they walked to the village church, and a sky blue swallow-tail and a salmon-colored silk were united in the holy bouds of wed lock before the astonished village eyes. Everybody was astonished, that a man who had smarted ,under matrimonial tyr anny for seventeen years, and who prided himself, besides, on ins knowledge oi womankind, should so soon seal, his fate again, by wedding a woman whom every body else in ibe village knew to oe the quintessence of deceit, of indolence and old-maidish spite. ; And if they were so astonished at this most unexpected union, what must Abed Noseburg himself bave been within forty- eight hours after? .Mow Mrs. JNosebug, Jo. 2, siioweu her true colors. Now he found that she had no properly but his. Now he found that if No. .1 had been a spit-fire, No. 2 wait a tigress. , Now, for the first time 'n his life, he doubted not only his knowl edge of woman, but his own senses; and when he heard the awful Betsy's voice, screaming after him about the house, or saw her great bouncing body lying lazily in a chair, doing nothing for hours, he re tired to some corner, and, looking over his reddening nose into the future, lifted up liis hands, and said nothing. He dared not! Abed Nosebug felt that he. had cauirht a Tartar a second time, and wondered, in his fear and grief, if he could stand it for another seventeen years. The wonder remains unriddled; for but six of the years are yet over. Bui if you wish to see the Deacon and ask him, go to the inn: at Parsnipville. There Deacon Nosebug hie nose redder than ever," poor man warns every young man not to think he knows any woman till he marries her. iVV-K Mercury., ; . Social.

When the green corn is fit for use, a pit is dug from two to three teet in diameter at top, and gradually enlarging at bottom, say rive teet down, from six to eight feet in diameter. A large fire is then built near by, on which stones are heated, and when red hot, the stone9 and live coals are shov eled into the bottom of the pit, and sprin kled over with fine loose dirt. The corn is then thrown in with husks on, just as it. is pulled from: the stalk, until the pit is full Then comes a thin layer of loose dirt, then hot stone's, (enough to close the pit,) and the whole covered with earth to retain the heat. When the whole cools off, (which takes several days, ) the pit is opened and the corn b found to be most delightfully cooked. When oool, the busks are stripped otf and the corn dried in the sun; when thoroughly dried, the corn is shelled off easily, and is then packed away in bags for use. Tomato Catsup. A writer in the Columbus (Georgia) 'Sun" gives the following as the best rec ipe for making tomato catsup: To a half bushel of skinned tomatoes add one quart of good vinegar, one pound of salt, quai - ter of a pound of black peppeer, two ounces of African cayenne, quarter of a pound ot allspice, one ounce of cloves, three boxes of mustard, twenty cloves of garlic, six good onions, two pounds of brown sugar and one handful of peach leaves." Boil this mass for three hours, constantly stirring it to keep it from burn ing. When cool strain it through a fine sieve or a coarse cloth, and bottle it for future use. It will improve by a;e, and create and give zest to appetite almost un der the nba of death. Curing Green Bcnns for Winter use. Pick good tender, sweet string beans, cut them into pieces about three-quarters of an inch in length, throw them into boiling water, let them stand five minutes; then, having the oven heated just hot enough to avoid burning the beans, spread on tin or earthen dishes, set them into the oven and let them remain there till per fectly dry, when they should be put up in small bags, and hung in a cool dry place. When you wish to cook a mcBs of corn and beans, put them to soak over Dight in warm water, and cook them as usual. Country Gentleman, 43TThe boundaries of the Indian lands in Kansas and the Cherokee neutral terri tory have just been officially established, for the purpose of limiting the extent of the INew loik Indian lands, which are be ing subdivided in order to allot 320 acres to each of such of the New York Indians as may have removed upon the land un der the provisions of the treaties of 1838 and 1842 with those Indians, and for the further purpose of segregating the residue of the reserve and declaring it public land, T)ic Uod. ; 'Well, he is a spoilt child; ' but the world will lake up the rod against him; and make up far the want of early cor rection." So we heard one speak of a pelted boy, and thought the remark only .too true. We Start iu life full of faults and peculiarities, which r have been amia ble weaknesses in the eyes of the family circle, but upon entering the career of ma ture life find we'must change in almost every particular.. This leoson is not learned in a day, and in proportion as the' will is unbroken, and the paiaions ' un checked, so in the severity of the world's discipline , . The youth of violent temper learns self control byjiridirilj bis busiiress standing, anuosr his improvement In this respect. He who has grown self-conceited and oracular in the midst of an admiring home-circle, be comes humbled at the indifference, and even contempt, of his fellow-men. Thus violent attachments become subdued, and exuberant enthusiasm cooled by the re buffs of a cold, calculating world.' One fault after another is cured by the smarting of . the world's rod, until a self-willed, head-strong youth is whipped into what he ought to be. Roughness of character becemea softened by constant attrition, so that he who has seen and felt, the world, and been moulded by unbending circum stances, looks' with pity on one just start ing in life. This process of improvement is much more observable wiih the Chris tian than with the worldly man. He is taught of God, and in proportion as he grows in grace, and gels, near to heaven,, so often will his situation become painful. He mourns his faults and deficiencies, and prayers for strength to improve. His prayer. cannot be answered without a se ries of circumstances, which in regular succession effect the desired, chauge of character. To the old Christian, ifie sight of one just starting in a Heitveiily life is full of sympathy and interest. He knows the young beginner must be. held under the rod, and be smitten many times, ere his tierce passions, strong will, self sufficiency, and ambition change to the forbearance, long Buttering, and humility of the gospel. ..The precious stone must be polished and fitted for the Redeemer's crown. Nothing will be done to harm its value or dim its lusln ; and yet it may be roughly handled, and submitted to many a strange process ere the work is done. Who, in a mere worldly sense, would say, "Let me remain an ignorant, impo litic youth, unable to-deal with men, awl powerless tovguide mjrittfairs,' father than submit to the world's rude jostle?" "CNot one; all desire to know the world, and learn the way to success. If such is the feeling of the worldling, how much more cheer fully should the Christian bow to the heavenly Teacher, who does not willingly afflict, but is fu'l of loving kindness and tender mercy. Ii is a momentous step to decide for Christ against' the world and Satan combined. But God will, "with every temptation, provide a wav of es cape."' "There is r.o royal road to learn ing" either in heavenly or earthly knowl edge. Each Christian must walk in the narrow beaten path of tribulation. Some will need more chastisement than others, but "all must be taught of God" to leain how to live, or ho to die. Submit then to the heavenly Teacher, and learn to look each adverse circumstance, each bitter dis appointment, calmly in the face, as a les son you peculiarly need, which must be learned, without which the soul may never 6ee Heaven. This view of fife will brigh ten the sad hours, of sickness and sorrow, and give the Christian a constant motive for contentment. To the true .Christian, life's lessons aie" solemn, and often hard io learn-, but yielding the peaoeabfe fruits of righteousness'. Why He Fell. We often wonder that certain men and women are left by God to the commission of sins which shock ua. We wonder how, under the temptation of a single hour, they fell from the very hights of virtue and of honor, into sin and shame. The fact is that there are no such falls as these, or there are next to none. These men and women are those who have dallied with temptation have exposed themselves to the influence of it, and have been weakened and corrupted by it. If we could fiet at the secret histories of those who stand suddenly discovered as vicious, we should find that they had been through this most polluting preparatory process that they had been in the habit of going out and meeting temptation in order that they might enjoy its excitements that under neath a blameless outward life they have welcomed and entertained sin in their im aginations, until their moral sense was blunted, and they were ready for the deed of which they thought they were incapa ble.

"Honey Run" is Vurlber christianized by the presence of an extremely hiispita-. . ble family, whose mtusion comprising one aparlmeiitV-neiiner, more, nor, J-sr-issr-nowned for being never shut gainst the traveler, and bo our friend found it during the chill morning air, at the expense of a rheumatism in hiattliourdei, its numeiroim unaffected cracks and spaces clearly show-.' ing that dropping the latch was a formality. The venerable host and hostess, in theij' own apartment, usually enjoy the sociely of two sons, two daughters, sundry dogs and niggers, and as mtny Iodgor3 as may deem it prudent to risk the somewhat . equivocal allotment of sleeping partners. On the nrghlin question, our friend, after a hearty supper of h im and eggs, and a canvas of the Fiery Forkeis the old lady having pointed out his bed---felt very warm, and only looked for an opportunity to "turn in," trough the mosquitoei were trumpeting all sorts of wrath, and nothing appeared to b.r them.

The nymphs soon stowed away, for there were neither bustles to unhitch, nor cor sets to unlace, when their mamma, evi dently anxious not to smother her guest, considerably relieved him, by saying: "You can unkiver, now, stranger I'm married folks, and you ain't aleard of me, I reckon!" The stranger happened to be "married folks," himself; he unkivered and turned his back with true connubial indifference as far as the ancient lady was concerned; but with regard to the "gals," he declared that his half-raiaed curiosity inspired the most, tormenting dreams of mermaids that ever he experienced. An Unexpf.cted Climax. Speaking of the tendency of temperance ftrators to put themselves m previous examples of the blighting effects of drink, an exchange says: "My friends,, three months ago I signed the pledge.

In another month, my friends, I had a good coat upon my back, a thing I never had before. (Cheerd and clapping of hands much louder.) A fortnight after that, my friends, I bought a coffin!" The audi ence was going to cheer here, out stopped and looked serious. "You wonder," con tinued the speaker, "why I bought a col fin. Well, my friends, I bought the cof fin because I felt pretty certain if I kept ihe pledge another fortnight, I should want one!" The Brain. A distinguished medical writer says that when the brain is irregu larly developed, irregularly exercised, when it is left in idleness, more or less complete, or one season of the year, and over-worked in the other, when the in tense study, close attention, violent pas sion, and alternations of excitement and depression inseparably connected with the practice of gaming, are nightly persisted in when the very composition of . the brain is nltered from the circulation of blood through it which has but imperfectly oxygenpted by the air of crowded public assemblies, it cannot regularly develops nervous powtr, neither can it regularly distribute this power throughout the body. jCSrA good cow, giving good milk, ac customed to city life, for sale.
