Mr. Watts had hy industry aiid economy accumulated a large prop erty. llo was a man of rather su perior mind and acquirements, but unfortunately became addicted to habits of intemperance. Naturally fond of company, and possessing superior coversational powers, his company was much sought and he became eventually a sot. His wife was a very feeble woman, without niuch decision of character; but an only child was the reverse, illustra ting one of those f-ingular laws of nature, that the female ol'tenesttake after the father in character and per sonal peculiarities' and tho males after tho mother. Msiry was well aware of the con sequences that would inevitably fol low her father's course, and had used every exertion of persuasion and rea son in her power, to induce him to alter his habits, but without avail; his resolutions and promises could not withstand temptation, and he pursued his own downward curse, till the poor girl despaired of reform and previously realized what the end must result in. John Dunn was a young man from the East, possessed of good cd ucalion, as all our New England boys are, and there indomitable in dustry and perseverance, and was working on tho farm of a neighbor by the month. Mary, on going on some errand to the next house, met him on the road with the usual salutation "Good morning, Mr. Dunn." "Good morning, Miss Watts. How is your health?" "Well, I thank you, but to tell the truth,s ick at heart." "Pray, what is the trouble?" said John, "what can effect you, a cheer ful, lively girl like you, possessing evey thing that can make you hap py?" "On the contrary to make me mis ernble. I am almost weary of life. But it is a subject I cannot explain to you; and yet I have sometimes thought I might." "Anything I can do you, Miss Watts, you may freely command." "That is promising more than you would be willing to perform. Eut to break the ice at once, do you want a wife?" "A wife! Well I don't know. Do you want a husband?" "Indeed I do, the worst way, I don't know but you may think me bold, and deficient in that maiden ly modesty becoming a woman, but if you knew my situation, aud the afllictions under which I suffer, I think it would bo some excuse for my course." "Have you thought of the conse quences?" said John "my situation I am poor you are rich I am a stranger and " "Indeed I have. I am almost crazy. Let me explain you and every one else knows the unfortu nate situation of my father. His habits are fixed beyond amendment, and his property is wasteing liko the dews before the sun. A lot of iarpies ,axe drinking his very heart's blood, and ruin and misery are star ing us in the face. We aro almost strangers, it is true; but I observed you closely. Your habits, your in dustry and the care and prudence with which you have managed your employer's business, has always in terested me." "And, yet, my dear young lady, what can you know of nio to war rant j'ou in -taking such an impor tant step?" It is enough for me that I am sat islied'with your character'and hab its your person and manners. I am a woman and have eyes. We aro about the same age; so if you know me and like mo well enough to take, there' Is my hand!" ''And, my dear Mary, there's mine with all my heart in it. Now, when do you desiro it to be settled!" "Now, this minute; give mo your arm, and wo will go to squire Ben ton's and have tho bargain finished at once. I don't want to enter our house of distress again until I have ono on whom I win rely, to control and direct the affairs of my discon solate home, and to support mo in my determination to turn over a new leaf in our domestic aflairs." "But not in this old hat, and in my shirt sleeves, Mary?" "Yes and I in my old bonnet and dirty apron. If you aro content let it be done at once. 1 hope you will think I am not so had pushed as that comes to; but I want a mas ter, and am willing to bo mistress. will then take you home and in troduce you as my own dear hus band signed, scaled and delivered. So be it permitjmejto say, that I have always admired you from tho first minute I saw you for your beau ty and energy, and industry, and amiable deportment." "Now John, if that is sincere, this is (ho happiest moment of my life, and I trust our Union will bo long and happy . I am the only one of my father hears to; but alas! his res olutions are liko ropes of sand. I can manage him on all other sub jects; you must take charge of his business, and have solo control; there will be no difficulty I am confident of the result." They were married, and a more happy match never was consumma ted. Everything prospered; houses and bams were repaired, fences and gates-wore regulated and the exten sive fields smiled and flourished like an Eden. Tho unfortunate fath er in a few days sunk into a drunk ard's grave. Mary and John raised a large family, and they still live re spected and wealthy all from an energetic'' girl's resolution, fore thought and courage. Jeff. Davis' Silver Plate. Ke ccntly a coffee or tea set, formerly used by Jeff. Davis, and sold at auc tion with a quantity of plate, just previous to the evacuation of the city by the rebels, war; presented to President Johnson by a gentle man of Richmond, who purchased the article at the auction sale. The coffee or tea set in question is a perfect miniature or a facsimile of a railroad locomotive, with tender attached. The locomotive boiler receives tho coffee or tea, makes and discharges it through a spiggot a steam whistle indicating when the coffee or tea is ready. The boiler of the locomotiv e is of porcelain, and the figure of a fireman, of the same material, ap pears on the locomotive vigorously ringing the bell, which, we sup pose, means the breakfast, dinner, or supper-bell. The tender, which is an admixture of brass and other metals, carries sugar, in an elegant jugar caisson, with goblets of cog niac, and stunning small cut glasses. The sides of the tender are embell ished with racks for cigars. The most curious contrivance of all is tho secret music box located somewhere in the tender, which, being set, plays eight popular airs, sufficient in length to entertain a supper, dinner, or breakfast table. Tho whole establishment, engine and tender, sets upon two beautiful enameled waiters, Upon the sides of the locomotive, in miniature, is emblazoned "President Jefferson Davis" showing that the testi monial locomotive and tender were built expressly for his use or plea sure. Upon tho front, just above where the cowcatcher ought to lie. tppears the Confederate national banner and bottle-flag entwined with tho national ensign of France. Brigham Young has purchased two of the Sandwich Islands, to which he proposes to remove bag and baggage.- The Boy Who Went to New York. A poor orphan boy, some few years ago, by the namo of John , went to New York to get a situation in a store as errand boy, clcj He was brought up in n coun try hillage, where his father and mother died and left him alone in the woiild, as regards frieiubi and rela tion. Ho had associated, in his native village,. with bad boys, because ho had no one to look after him and warn him of the consequences; and had become addicted to smoking, and to drinking spirtous liquors oc casionally. But Johny had a strong md, and was not 60 far initiated in these bad practices but ho could brakhimso lfofthem, as every boy may who will exercise a little firm nefs and good judgement. Johny had about in money and a small bundle of clothe?, with which he landed on the wharf in that great city; and he at once went in search of a bonrding-houso, which ho found in a remote street, where ho could board two weeks for what money ho had. The next morning he read all the daily papers, to sco if any one ad vertised for a boy, and he saw that a merchant in Brodway wanted ono and ho called on him at once. Now, this merchant had had a great deal of trouble with wicked, unreliable boys, that ho had employ ed, who would often slop and drink beer and other liquors at tho sa loons when he sent them on errands an.l in some casc-s they took his money to pay for them; so ho took Johny into his office and told him what bad boys he had employed that ho required a smart, honest. Jaxtlful lad, who was addicted to no had habits liow these evils prao tices led from bad to worse, in most cases, and ended in the dis charge of boys eVeywhere that no buy could expect to rise in the world, especially in the great city of New York, unless he was honest faithful, and avoided dram-shops, and other bad places, etc. "Now," said tho merchant, "I want to know what your habits are whether you smoke segars, chew tobacco, drink liquor, swear, etc." Johny saw at once (hat "honesty is tho best policy," and that he had got. to turn over a new leaf in his. .Mmluct, if ne was to succeed there so ho vepiied: "Yes, sir, it is true, I do smoke some! .Lies, and l-usel to drink beer, and sometimes a lit.tlo gin or brandy when I was at home; but, sir, I had no father nor mother to tell mo that such things were wrong; and' from what you have said, sir, I see plainly that no lad who follows such practices ?an suc ceed in business here; and from this hour henceforth I will never smoke another cigar, nor drink another glass of liquor. Now, sir, iry mi?' "My lad," replied the merchant, "I admire your diction tfcltaractcr, and you shall have the situation on trial; and remember, if you prove true and faithful to my interests you may live to see the day when you will own as large a storo of goods as mine, is." Johny did live up to his word, and to-day his own namo is over the same door, as owner of the en tire establishment; his employer having died, and left it all to him in a legacy, as ho was a bachelor without relations. Thus we see, boys, what a little decision of character may effect, when a lad has firmness to do right. The Boy Who Went to New York. Courting in Iowa. The following circumstance hap pened in Ceder county, Iowa : A certain young man being out on a courting expedition one Sunday evening, in order to keep his secret from his young acquaintances, de termined to he at home bright and early on Monday morning. Drcs- 'sed in his fine white summer pants, ana other nixins in proportion, lie mounted his horse and soon arrived at the residence of his inamorata, where he was kindly received, and the horse properly cared for, being turned out into the pasture for the night. The night passed away, and 3 o'clock in tho morning arrived. Three o'clock was the timo for him to depart, so that he might arivc nt homo before his comrades were stirriug. lie sallied forth to the pasture to catch his horse ; but here was the difficulty the grass was high and loaded with dew. To venture in with his pantaloons on would rather take the starch out of them, and lead to his detection. It would not do to go in with his white' unmentionables, fo he quick ly made his resolve, llo carefully disrobed himself of his valuable whites, and placed them in safety on the fence, whilo ho gave chase with unscreened petals, through the wet gras, after his horse. Re turning to the fence, where he had safely suspended his lily-white un mentionable?, oil! inirahle di'dit ! what a sight met his eyes ! The field into which his horse had turned was not only a horse pasture, but a calf pasture too; and the naughty calves, attracted by tho white (lag on the fence, had betaken them selves to it, and, calf-like, had eaten them up! Only a few well chewed fragments of this once valuable portion of the wti'rdrobo remained only a few threads just suflicient to indicate what they onca had been. What a picklo was this for a nice young man to bo in! It was now daylight, and the farmers were up, and our hero far from homo, with no covering for his 'traveling apparatus.' It would not do to go back to tho house of his lady-love, neither to go to town, in that plight. There was only one resource left to him; that was to secrete himself in the bushes; and it may bo imagined that his feelings toward the calf kind were not oil the most friendly character in con sequence. But ere long his seclu-1 sion was destined to bo intruded! upon. By-and-by tho boys who ! had been out to feed (he calves, re-1 turned with tho renin outs of Iho' identical white garments which had adorned tho lower limbs of their j late visitor! They were mangled and torn to shreds, an inquest, was immediately held overtheni, Some awful fate had befallen the man. The neighbors were, summoned to search for the mangled corpse, and the posse, with dogs and arms, sol out with all speed. Tho pasture was throughly scoured and then the adjacent thickets, when, lo! our hero was driven from his lair by the keen scent of the' dogs all safe and oiind, minus therlinen! . An explanation than ensued, at tho expense of our hero. But he was successful in the end, and married the lady, and is now living comfortably in ono ot the flourish ing town of Iowa. How a Conductor saved a Young Lady from being Choaked. Not long since Conductor Caw ley had the blessed privilege of car rying out a loving couple, who as sumed tho position of "Lord Ullin's Daughter" and her betrothed, so affectingly described in the Teach ers' Institute last week; j One lovely hand was tn teiif d fi'roiil, i Anil one was round her lover" Only in this case, instead of one hand being "stretched for aid," it was whore tho other was, encircling his inamoratal. Thev had eviden tly been up, or at least awake, very I late the evening before; (he train ! had not reached Early before the female member of tho firm was sound asleep nothing to be woiid-i ercd at, for the position she had as sumed was in every way favorable to calm and sweet repose. The by-sitters were simply amus ed; but Conductor Cawley, more experienced, foresaw serious, if not fatal results. Approaching the sleeping maiden, he took ono wrist in his hand, and looking at his watch with a professional air, after a few moments addressed the young man . "My dear sir, do you not see that you are killing your lady ." "What!" exclamed tho youth in open-mouth astonishment. "Don't you see you are killing that young lady ? Her pulse is on ly eighteen to the minute now; un less you let go your hold around her neck yon will have her choked to death in ten minutea!" lie let go. There was some laughter among tho obsirvers, but , J j : ; Dubuque Times. GOLD AND SILVER. Silver ; ml gold are now being j shipped qiiite extensively tr this city from Idaho Territory.
