I wnt formally in trod need to her, but neither of ut betrayed nny sin of juoviout ae qtiaititunco, except by our Lluhcs nnd eye. "YYhilo tea wat getting ready, the lady of tho houto went out of the room to pvc H,nio direetiont, nnd left tu nlone. Heaven and earth! What a situation! I would havo ?i ven all tho pittaneo I wa worth to have been in tho deepest dell in tho forest. J felt tho necessity of saying something in excuse for my former rudeness; I could not eonjitro up tin idea, nor ut ter a word. Kvery moment matters were growing worse. I felt nt one time tempted to do as I had done when I robbed her of the ki-s bolt from the room and take to flight; hut I wa ehaimd to the spot, for I really longed to gain her good will. "At length I plucked up courago on Petri mr hor eouallv confused with mv- self, nnd walking desperately up to her, I exclaimed, 'I havo been trying to mu.t.er up something to pay to you, bui 1 cannot. I feel that I am in n ho rible scrape. lo hevo pity on me, ami help me out of it!' "A Ptnilo dimpled upon her mouth, nnd played among the bluphes of bcr cheeks. Sho looked up wilh a ly but arch trlanco ofthoe'e, that expressed a vol u mo ot comie, recollections; c both broko into a laugh, and from that moment all went on well." I 'listing over tho delightful do scription that succeeded, wb proceed to tho announcement of Ilingwood's affair tho marriage and settlement.! "That very autumn I wa admitted to tho Bur, and a month afterward wnn married. Wo woro a young cou ple, sho not ftbovo sixteen, I not quito twenty, nnd both nltnott wit hont a dollar In tho world.

Tho publio ro"m win throngod with nil tho Idler in tho country who gathered together on such occasion. Thero wai some diinkini; tfoinir forwnrd with a great; noise and a litt Io altercation. Just ut I entered tho room, I saw a rough bully of a fellow, who was partly intox icated, strike an old man. Ho came swaggering, by mo, arid elbowed mo at ho patted. I Immediately knock, ed him down and kicked him into the street. I need d no belter introduc tion. In a moment I had half v. dozen ronjjli shake of tho hand aad invita- tiont lo drink, nnd found myself quite a 'la I'tomcro in that rouvh nssem- bln.'e. 'I'll" next morning court opened I look my neat among tho lawyer, hut f'.It at u mere spectator, not having nny idea whero butinyst wat to come from. In tho course of tho morning a man va put to tho bar, charged with p:ising counterfeit mono, nnd wat nsked ii' he wnt ready for trial. IIo nntwered In tho negative. He had been confined in a phw.o whero there were no lawyers, und lmi not had nn opportunity of contnlting any. He wit told to ehooso counv l fVor.i the lawyer pretent, and bo ready for trial tho next da). Ho looked around tho room nnd selected mo. I wat thun derstruck! I could not tell why he should make such a choieo. I. a beard lest youngster, unpractised nt tho bar; perfectly unknown. I f.rlt dim lent yet delighted, nnd could lnvo hugged the rascal. 'lb fire loiving tho court, ho gave mo one hundred dollars in a bag fur a retaining fee. I could scarcely bo lievo my sense-; it seotnod like a dream. Tho heavinest of tho fee spoke but lightly of Iho man' innocence but that wat no ufluir of mine. I was to bo advocate, not judge or jury. J followed liim b tho jail, and learned all tho particulars of tho ease; from llienco I went to the Clerk' office and took minutes of the iti-tit ctnont. I then examined the law on tho subject, and prepared my brief in my room. All this occupied me till midnight, when I went to bed nnd tried to sleep, it wat in vain; never in my life wat I moro wide awake. A host of thoughts and fancies eamo rushing into my mind; tho shower of gold that had so unexpectedly fallen into 113- lap, tho idea of my poor liltlo wil'o at home, that I win to astonish her with my good fortune. Hut llu awful respoiisi liililv I had undertaken, to speak li.r iho first timo in a strange court, ind the expect itiont the culprit had formed of mv talents; all these, nr i a crowd of similar notions, kept wh , ing through my mind. I tossed about nil night, fearing morning would find mo exhaust d and incompetent 111 a word, tho day dawned upon mo a mis erable fellow. "I got un feverish and nervous. J walked out before breakfast to Collect my thought and tranquili.o my feel inif. It was a bright morning the air was pure and frosty I bathed my forehead and my hands in a beautiful running stream, but 1 could not allay the fever heat that raged within.

I rose ein. barru-sed and dismayed, and stammer ed in opening the cause. I went on from bud to worse, ami felt a if I was going down. Just then tho public prosecutor, a man of talents, but some what rough in his praetieo, made a sar castic remark on something I said. It was liko an clectrio spark, and ran ting ling through every vein in my body. In an instant my diffidence was gone; my whole spirit was in arms I answered with promptness, for I felt tho cruelty of such an attack upon a novice in my situation. The prosecutor made a kind of apology. This for a man of his re doubted p"ewrr, was a at mrs cession. it with a fearful triumphantly. led. ng of m. .

I was up and mounted the bor rowed horse with which I had como to court, nnd led the other which I had received ns a foe. All tho way 1 was delighting myself with tho thought of wirpriso I. had' in storo for my wife, for both of ut had expected that 1 should spend all the money I had bor roweij ami return in debt. "Our meeting wat Joyous, nt you may suppose; but I played the part of tho Indian hunter, who, when he return from the chase, never for a while Ppenks of his siicecs.

It proved to be a providential thing for thorn,' lor the captain hadn't taken an ohuorratior or a gin cock tail in three days, and they woro three latitudes and most a longi tudo out of their course, nod in fifteen minutes more they would havo run a foul of the front door of a farm. house and foundered in an oat bin. I sincere ly hope that when they take Hill out to bo hung by his r.eek, till ho is dead threo times, and (Jod have mercy 011 his soul, tho rope, will shrink ho they can't tie 11 knot in it.

Tho uunp is nt tho bottom of a valley of about a hum rod acres, smooth, ntid'nlmost without veg etation, ns it has flr a long timo been used at a camp ground nt this season of the year. On all sides tho valley is sur rounded by high hills, densely "wooded to their summits, bv tho lofty pines nnd cedars of Oregon. The deep green of tho pines would bo monotonous wero it not for tho boldness of tho general fen tares of tho scenery, tho immense cliUs cf white und r ;d granite, that appear hear und there, sparkling like diamonds in tho Punlight, and tho small stream that send their waters dashing and glistening like a thread of silver down tho mountain si. Jo into tho river below. Tni'ther down are tho Falls of tho Spo kane, whero it large body of wirtercomes bounding down from n'bovo, ono . om plete mnss of foam, with the heads of the black rocks, nownppearing and now disappearing, liko the heads of some huge monsters sportingin the sunshine. Then right ut our feet the villngospread cut before us, ami the Indians some riding about, some dancing tho scalp dance, some seated on the ground clean, ing their arms the squaws bringing salin. in from tho river whom they had been caught, the horses and cattle wan. dering about nnd browsing ut tho foot of tic: hill, before bchg sent higher up for tho night. Taking this all in ut a glance on the hill fido nil pleasant and peaceful in tho alley below the barking of logt, the following of tho Indians, tho firing of gun, nnd tho sound of tho w-ir drum made us till feel thut tint was n sight to bo soon but once in a man's life time. Tho Tcpo oud Jliss Vlx, Miss l)ix hi's lately visited the Pope. She gives Dr Fnnks iho oilowiug ac count of the interv!- e : "I visited the l-i'iiti-; nyliim, and my heart revolted ut tho sight. I did hot see siek persons whom man should pity, unfortunate whom he should endeavor to cure; they wore bl utet in .chains, tho th us of which sei.-uvd never to have been cleaned. Several days after my visit to the lunatic asylum 1 was pre sented to his llolint's.t tho Hope, who knew tho object of my travels. Tho Fopo asked mo in tho most friendly manner whether 1 had yet visited the iisyluni nt Jlome. 1 had the courage to answer, 'Vet, I am convinced that your Holiness has not yet paid it visit.' Pio Nono quickly raised hit head, und only bowed, with nn expressive, attentive look. I understood him, and related to him, In a voice full of emotion, all the horrors ami barbarisms I had w itnessed I ventured trembling within myself, upon a bold expression on the unchris tian treatment of the unhappy beings. The respect-commanding man of Chris tendom listened with earnest attention, and said, hi icily, alter I had concluded. Como again in a week's time.' und 1 then left his presence. My anxiety was unutterably great. Tho' Portcstant, the stranger had perhaps risked too much. Although I was eonsciousin my heart of my good intentions, I yet pas sed a sleepless night, and a day "of deep inward agitation. It created' a sensa tion when the holy father, two days af ter I had been presented to him, sud denly while taking on of his drives, stopped betoro the gate of tho asylum, and spent an hour in it. The week had passed, and I stood, as I had been com manded, in tho Vatican before tho Pope. In a manlier ns grave at it watc ilin, Pio Xonoftaid to me: "I have appoin ted a commission, charged to lay be fore mo propositions concerning the erection of a lunat'c Ms-ylum, cont"rina b'y with the rr.les of humanity and mo rality, in the shoi tc.-t time possible.

Thomas Mooro visited tho Unitod States in 18031, ut tho ago of twenty. four, Just after he bnd acquir ed dubioui notoriety by tho rmW feat Ion of Little's p-xma. Jle was presented to President Jefferson by Mr. Marey, tho British Minister. It seems thut Mr. JclTerson was not aware of tho Indon tity of the poetical young gcntlomnn probably not having heard of, nnd cer tainly not having read his amorous In- yubutions iimpiy spoke te the lillipu- nan stranger, looking aown ccnuiy on him, as six foot two will look down on flvo foot threo, nnd pasrtod on.

When sotno of Jefferson's intimate friends saw the verses in which Mooro had not only abused America, but lam pooned her Chief Magistrat, they de termined to place tho subject before tho person chielly concerned. JcfTerson'j daughter, Mrs. Hundolph, nnd his ex .Secretary, Mr. Hurweli, talked them selves into a towering indignation and waited upon Jellc'son, who wus sitting reading in tho library atMonticello, se renely unconscious of tho valnmnlty. Hurwoll pointed out the obnoxious passages. Tho victim glanced through them, looking at ono angry interlocu tor and then the other. It wus amus ing enough lo ueo Burwell so exaspera ted, but tho calm, gentle Martha's pas sion gust was irresistible. .Mr. Jeder son broke into a clear, hearty latih. There wat more than argument there was conviction in that laugh. Tho in digmint pair retreated, looking a little ert ti fallen, but as soon us the library door closed, joined heartily in the mcr riment. Many years later, "Moore's Irish Mel odies," appeared in tho United Stale. Tho book was placed in JellVrson's hands by hi grand-daughter, who had some curiosity to eo how it would be received. "Why," said h, "this Is tho little man who satirized mo so!" He had alwuys sympathized keenly with the Irish patriots.

It wol'd bo curious to know how tho people of Venus boro tho sight, and whether they wore frightened by tho appearance of so queer a visitor, and which came quite unbidden within their respectable cir cle. Perhaps they have not made such progress as ourselves, und to them a gigantic comet may bo something more than a joke. Indeed, we fancy if the comet ' had been multiplied thirty fix times to our eyes, we should not have been altogether to indiil'crent as wo were to it, but have found it as eloquent as Felix found Paul, and have trembled a little. On tho l'Jih, tho Comet was so pear to Venus, then doing duty ns Hesperus, or the Kvening Star, that it was only two und a halfdegreos distant. Now, as nothing happened to her se rene brightness in consequence of that unneighborly call, and she is as beauti ful now as when tho poets first hymn ed her, ages upon ages ago, may wo not draw tho rational inference thatthcreis nothing to be feared from tho nearest cometary visits, nnd so look for tho van ishing of tho last remnants of that su perstition, for such it wat, which caus ed men to shudder beforo tho appear at. co of a heavenly body, but winch re ally it not so wondertul ns that sun wliich has appeared si regularly over since tho Creator appointed it to rule iho day, and to extract from the earth a thousand bletsing lor man?
