It was ten o'clock at night, and Mr. Paul Oodlins had not yet come home. lie had niily gone as far as Ravensoake, to look at some land, which was to be offered for sale the next morning, and he expressly told his wife that he should be back by the quar ter past nine train. Anyone acquainted with the locality will doubtless remember that the village of Ravensoake is about twenty one miles from the village of Bubbleton, and Mr. Paul Codlins' house lies N. N. W., about a quarter of a mile from Uubbleton Station, so that he could easily have walked home if; he had come by the quarter past nine train ;i and yet ten o'clock had struck and he had ; not arrived. His little wife began to be ; - 1 1 ' (HI. il. 1 11 larmea. ine iaci is, inero naa Deen a light quarrel that very morning 'Theyhnd' only been married four months, and it was their first' disagreement.

WMot cbtagiit toth Bnbhlctoi Ct. tion, and the history retrogrades fourteen hours. Mr. Paul Codlins is discovered with a ticket in his hand, as the train is coming up. The train arrives, and Mr. Codlins gets in. There was no one in the compartment which he entered, so putting his legs on the opposite seat, he entered at once into an arithmetical calculation, based upon the prob ability of becoming the purchaser of the land he was going to look at. The train stopped at two or three stations, and then hearing the guard, as he thought, shout "Raven soake Station," he got out and gave up his ticket. Secinir the village on a hill about a mile off, he did not ask any directions as to his route, for he had been told before he left 0fi?ble.ton that the Blue Lion was the first J house in tho village, and the Blue Lion was the establishment at which parties were re quested to apply who wished to view the property. So, as it was a beautiful day, he walked slowly forward. Now it so happened that two or three soldiers stood idling about near the station when Mr. Paul arrived there, and he was almost certain they very nearly saluted him, which so pleased him (for he had a very fair share of vanity) that it may be attributed to this circumstance that Mr. Codlins did not notice the" somewhat extra ordinary behavior of two policemen when he alighted ; who first of all looked at him as if they were measuring him, in their own minds. for a suit of clothes, and then, when he wen l , out of the station, forming a sort of pro- cession up the lane, consisting of one of them 1.:.. 1 , . l . :.. .l ..e r I umiuuiujj buuui iuu yams m Huvmiee oi mr. todlins, and the other perambulating abou ten yards in the rear.

" What might the description be V. asked Codlins, very humbly. The Inspector read from a paper the fol lowing: " While hat. Hack coat, thick black moustache, stands Jive feel eleven, and very erect;" and then added, "I suppose, as they don't give the color of your trousers, you have been sitting somehow, that they could only take your portrait half length?" " It is a little like my dress, certainly," replied Mr. Codlins, alarmed at the descrip tion ife was, so accurate. "Can you identify the Captain?'' asked the Inspector, turning to the stranger ; who hastily replied, that to the best of his know! edije he had never seen the gentleman be fore, that the Captain Legbalem who had swindled him was somewhat like him, to be sure ; but he could not swear it. "I ean assure you I am a gentleman of independant property, and that 1 came over to this village for the purpose of buying some land, said Paul, "that is to be sold to morrow at the Blue Lion." " I have cautioned you, sir," remarked the Inspector, " not to say anything ; you win ao yourseit no irood Dy it, there is no sale of land at the Blue Lion, or indeed any where at New Stoke to-morrow." "No, hot at New Stoke; at Ravensoake," said Paul "This village is called New Stoke, Ra vensoake is sixmiles off," was the cold reply . . .. . . . r J -uoodness gracious," exclaimed poor Codlins, at this knock-down blow, "then I must have got out at the wrong station."

It is amusing to hear some wise people talk about the popular bug bear of " Book t arming, lhey would have us believe that the farmer is the last one who is to derive any advantage from the press, and the first to repudiate all innovations upon the time sanctified customs of the past. Experience, theytell us, is the best teacher; and they choose to take experience as their guide, carefully abstaining from the use of either books or paper, lest the recorded experience of others should disturb the equanimity.of their muds, or cast a shade of suspicion on the infallibility of past generations. A very intelligent friend of ours, one who is an ex ception to the general rule, the other day con ceded the fact, that those who, like himself, uave gathered wisdom Irom a Jong and a successful experience, they are bound to communicate to others the lessons which they have learned. It is exactly so. And this lets us into the grand secret of all his book farming. The press, in one way and another, , records the discoveries and experiences of men, for the benefit of others ; and he who is too wise in his own conceit, to read has the inestimable privilege, in this tree country, of falling in the rear of that nu merous company who do read and are de termined to understand. Butand here let us be explicit he who reads without exerci sing his own judgment, will make a sorry business of farming, or anything else. No calling requires more thought than that of the agriculturist. And hence we should ad- Jiess ourselves to the nleasurable task of de veloping the vast resources of mind, that we fette Central Committee, for a Democrat may, by such instrumentalities, develop the ic,State Convention, to be held in the City inexhaustable riches of the noil.
