All hands had just returned from tho lunch room and vrero tapering oil on cigars. How tho subject of brides ami bridegrooms cams under consldora tion?smd what suggested tho strange story, we havo frfjotteii hut Piatt never told a story mal upropoi, ami novcr told ono that was not truo, for was ho not an editor? Wo use his ve ry word, so far as they can lw re called; ?Oa summer evening, just as tho sun was setting behind the rapids and makiBg a golden pathway across tho limpid waters tho steamer Accomack, nWIni? between the local wharves of the James river and Old Point, set on shore four persons, or, to speak to tho card, two couples, and just married, as any one could too with half an eye; blushes and dinging helplessly, so to speak, on the woman's part, and great nervoutneas, added to a self protecting air, on tho man's side, and an appear auce, badly acted, of iudiflercnco in both, told the tale. Tho genius Pha-bus appears on tho stage; he lakea in tho situation at a gtaica and be walks, or rather rolls, ufTto tbefquarier, d'Walk up to my hotel, gentlemen ami ladies. My name's Phubui, and I'm owBer here. What might yours "bcT Ono murmurs Jones, tho other braitH, and then, both stuttering, pro sents Airs. J. and Mrs. S. "Just married, I see," said tho ge nial proprietor. "Walk right up.aud I'll give you the best rooms in tho house. I like bridal couples, I do; re Bifid mo of tho timo when mo and ray old woman did tho tender racket and cleaned our teeth with tho same brush." After walling in tho reception room half an hour the two couples wcro sbowb to thtir respective rooms, they being marked on tho register as 100 and 101, and were side by side. Af ter supper thoy journoyed to tho ball room, and sat listening to tho uiuiic. Then the brides got fidgety and disap peared "to their rooms. Ono was a short, sprightly brunette, all fire and sparklo, and as plump aa a partridge; the other a tall, Juno-lirabed blonde, with complexion of croam and rose, sleepy, scneuous just such a type as Rubens loved to paint. Tho grooms wcro alike in stature; both bad board leas faces, with an adolescent nious tacho growing, and it is needless to add that thoy were from tho country, and taking their first dip into tho stream of fashionable lifo. , After tho departure of their wives the two incipient fathers, all unknown to each other, and too much engrossed in their own blissful thoughts to no tico other people, passed an hour or two looking on the billard players,and varying the pwnotony by going up to thebaVevery five minutes and taking a drink. 'Now, it happened that a gentleman, I dare not mention his name, had been watching the whole proceedings and with amused and observant eye, and having looked at the regitter, a mos sinful and thoughtless idea' came in hta head. Gating around cautious ly he saw that tho clerk's attention was engaged ekewhero, bo he slyly takes the pen and changes tho nought to one and one to naught. It is very simple thing to do, but very wicked. So the rooms were transposed. By and by Mr. Jones, getting Used oHoungiog around, went to the book to see tho number of hie room; it read 161, aad he goes along tho dimly lighted passage, with the joker steal ing behind htm. Arriving at tho door he scanned the number to see it he was right, and then walked boldly in, for the door was unlocked, and the skylights showed that the room was wrapped in cimiaerian darkness. Mr. Jones bow being comfortably installed la Mrs. BwUk's reom, it was not ten minutes after that Mr. Bmith, tho husband of the plump brunette, hav ing also looked at tho register, camo timidly down tho half lighted hall, counting (or tho magic nu mber. Ar riving at No. 100, ho walked in tho chamber where the grand looking blonde lay, and the door closed. Aa hour at least passed, and eur Joker waited in vain fur' some sign. All was silent and dark, and so ho turned in himself, but not toslcop. Imagination played strango freaks, and tho earliest dawn found him still wandering. Getting up ho . resumed his watch, and just as tho lamps woro Iwginuing to palo Mr. Jones, looking liko Tarquin, emcrgod from tho room and diapicBrcd. Mr. Bmith by a coincidence followed suit. , At breakfast timo both brides ap peared and wcro joined by their liege lords. Ono thing was evident to tho joker, tho brides had not found out the trick; their freedom from a burning cmbar rarsmeut, jarring a little maiden bull fulucsa, showed this; but the groom! From his advantage place Mr. Practi seal J. saw tho young Benedicts sit ting by themselves in a brown study. Every now and then thoy would laugh silently until tears would run down their cheeks; then they wjuld becomo grave, only to break out in gribs a moment after; and so the long day passed away, and thoy took tho steam er to New York. Now, what was tho upshot of all this tho joker never knew, but remorse tortured his soul; ho took to drinking; then falling steadily downward he bo camo a politician, until, reaching the very depths of tho pit, an indignant public sentenced him to pay penanee, and he is now serving out a term in tho Virginia Legislature, and ho never gets a letter but what in derision an "Hon." is put beforo his name. Moral for young married conplo Turuon tho gas. Col. II. M. Mc Curly in Paducah Journal. Changes in tho James Iliver have made an island of Jamestown, com pletely separating it from the main land, and about all that remains of the first English settlement of Virginia is tho dismantled tower of tho old church. It was here that Pocahontas embraced tho Cbristiau faith, and was baptized by tho name of Rebecca. Tho font used on that occasion now stands in tho channel of Christ Church, Williamsburg. Hero also Pocahontas was married in 1C13 to John Kolf. A low brick wall encloses tho ground oc cupied by the ruined tower and foun dation of tho church; nnd tombstones, somo broken and scattered, somo lean ing against tho wall and nil with' in scriptions nearly if uot quite illegible, have long since ceased to indicate whoro lies tho dust of thoso who bore their names. Two hundred yards bo low tho ruins and ono hundred from tho river bank is tho stately old man sion built by John Ambler over a hun dred years ago. It is the only resi dence on tho island, is in Hue preserv ation, aud occupied by Col. II. D. B. Clay, formerly of New York, who owns Jamestown, which consist of 1,700 acres, and is between two and thrco miles in length and thrco quar ters of a miloin width. A convert iu a Methodist congrega tion had been a strickly honest man, but profane and a Sabbath breaker. Tho Christian Advocate, in telling tho story, says that ho mado a full confes sion In ono of tho meetings. Ho said that ho had lived an ungodly lite aud considered himself an amazing in stance of God's mercy. The tido of religious teeliug rose high on bis possl tivo testimony, and as he took his seat a brother started tho hymn, "The dy log thief rejoiced to see that fountain iu his day." To the surprise of all, tho new convert, in a towering rage, left tho building. On being asked what tho matter was, ho said: "There is one thing I never did I never stole; and that they should immediate ly slug like that was a personal in sult." It is a perfect marvol how some let ters which fall into the puzzled hands of postofiice officials ever reach their destination. The "blind readers," as those are called who decipher hiero glyphics, seem to ba able to follow any clow, however slight it may be, and to find a person to whom a letter is ad; drossed, even when the writer gives no Intimation. When a man who sees the words "Signiglcol's Hotel" can guess correctly that it means St. Nicholas Hotel he has, indeed, a faculty for reading a superscription which cou sists of "nine hieroglyphics, five scratches, three dots and a blot," and should bold his office for IHe. & Speculation tht Cauti. Of tho flvo National Banks which were cmbarressed last week four of them owod their trouble to specula tion. The St. Albans hank was obliged to suspend localise its President hsd undertaken a big deal in securities of the South-western railway. Tho El mira hank' was seriously embarrassed by the run upon it owing to a report, which was denied, that its President had lost (50; 000 in a pork speculation. Tho suspension of tlw First National Bank of Indianapolis was due, in part at ieastVo tho heavy drafts upon it by depositors who had margins to meet in Chicago, and tho Indian hanking Com pany in tho samo way. The banks themselves regard with great suspi cion any man upon whom tbero is tho slightest taint of speculation, and thoy must expect the public to scrutinize with equal bo verity tho acta of thoso which whom they deposit their money. Commercial Gazette. A bashful young man went thrco times toTwk a beautiful young lady if ho might be tho partner of her joys and sorrows and other household, fur niluro, hut each time his heart failed him nnd he took tho question away unpoped. She saw tho anguish of his soul and had compassion on him. Bo tho next time ho camo sho asked him if bo thought to bring a screw driver with him. He blushed and wanted to know what for. And -, she, in tho fullness of her heart, said sho didn't know but ho'd want to screw up his eourago before ho loft. He took tho hint and the girl. A commandment improved: Tho eighth commandment was all very well at tho timo it was written, but it is altogether too narrow for these days. It should bo redrawn, io read some thing liko this: "Thou sbalt not steal; neither shall thou crabczzlo, purloin, commit grand or petty larceny or ob tain money by fulso pretenses; thou shall not indulge in shoplifting (unless you are respectable enough to prove that kleptomania is hereditary iu tho family); thou shall not duplicate thy pay accounts." Tho Washington Gazelle, a repub lican paper, has just made a discovery. Tho new light which is being shed up on tho editor has worked a change of heart and he is moved to remark that "the alliance between the Mahone re pudiated and the republican party has worked tho republican party enor mui injury in tho States North, with nothing in tho way of compensation ex cept thesenatorial vote of the renegade democrat who is tho leader of the ro pudiators." Some statistics regarding strikes in Europe have been introduced beforo tho Senate Labor Inquiry Committee It appeared that siuco 1870 there have 2,352 strikes occurred, of which 72 aro known to havo been won, 189 lost, 918 compromised, and 2,000 aro not accounted for but wero probably lost by those encaging in them.

Tho Society of Friends has repealed the prohibition of the marriage of first cousins, and now for tho first time iu nearly two hundred years a bashful young Quaker can enjoy the placid and unexciting stagnation of marrying ono of tho family. Young man, no matter how much tho law may permit It, don't do It. Think of an aunt for a mother-in-law. I married Lmy wifo for her, beauty; sho married me tor for my wit, that I got tho best of tho bargain I'm cand id enough to admit.

A Pennsylvania firm is erecting at Johnson City, Tesu., what is said will bo the largest tannery in the world. Tho buildiBg willlcover several acres, and the vats will be on an extensive scale. The supply of oak ba)k is said to be almost inexhaustible in that seo tion ot East Tennessee. A Nebraska farmer says hay is ben eficially fed to hogs iu his State. Tho hay h cut short, mixed with bran, shorts or middlings, and fed as other feed, though hog like it better if soaked, in swill or slop. "It nuts on flesh as rapidly aa anything that can be given tkeai," A Coach Load ot Slifetont, A special dispatch from Lampaw, Tex as, says that a carriage containing the skeletons of throo adults and two chil dren, sitting upright as if in life, under a large tree, has been found near a road in Llano county. Tho tree was shattered by lightning, and it is sup posed the carragn was driven under the tree for shatter, and was struck, tho bolt killing the Inmates and the horses, The weather-beaten appear ance of the carriage and its trimmings indicate that the event happened a year or two ago. In a small trunk waa a letter addressed to James G. Chamberlain, London, England. The discovery was made by a ranchman driving cattle. Tho spot where they were found is far from any habitation. Theological discussions do very lit tle good and generally end in tho loss of temberon'both sides. The veib to discuss is an ominous verb, because af ter a short time tho tint syllable is drorfped and tho talk is continued un der tho last syllable. Two very able persons were onco indulging in a con troversy of this kind, when ahugo dog who wbb one of tho company began to liark furiously. A third person who Imd listened until his patienco was -ex hausted turned to the quadruped and said vr ilh evident sarcasm: "Shut up, you brute; you don t know any more about the subject than they do." The telephone companies now doing business in the United States, under grants from the Bell Teleneone Com havo an aggregate capitalization of nearly 8100,000,000, which is about the aggregate capitalization of tho Wes tern Union Telegraph Company. The telcphono business is growing so rap idly, that it is claimed by those con versant with tho business, that when tho country is fully ripplied with in struments, which aro now being put iu at the rate of several thousand a month, this business willcarn dividends on a capitalization of $200,000,000. Tub Bitteks Bit. Last spring dealers in butter in New York and Bos ton bought up all tho butter obtaina ble in tho West at an average of 21 cents, and placed 10,000,000 pounds in cold storage in Chicago it is said, with belief that tho product would go up in July. Thero has been a large produc tion, however, and tho stored butter is depreciating in valuo. It is said that some will have to be Bold for 10 or 15 cents., The loss on the deal is esti mated from $500,000 to $1,000'000. Tho St. Louis Republican relates that at a wedding recently in Illinois a parson who is generally ready at repar tee, waa completely nonplussed by an aged matron, who, after hearing the words, "Whom God hath joined to gether let no man put asunder," ex claimed with great earnestness," (Or no woman either, for tboy'ro just as bad as the men." From 250 to 300 cats are destroyed weekly during the warm season in Philiilelphla by the agent of the wo man's branch of the city refugo for lost and suffering animals. They are not drowned, but suffocated with charcoal gas. Last year no fewer than 7,151 uuhappy cats Wore .thus put beyond tho reach of tho slings and arrows of outrageous fortune Mr. William Astor's new yacht will bo of steel, and will bo the largest and, it is said, the handsomest pleasure yacht yet constructed.

She has crossed tho Atlantio twenty times for (ho purpose of purchasing second-handed drosses from the nobility, which she passed through tho Custom-house by explaining that the dresses were her wearing apparel. She can work a fancy screen, just the nieest ever seen, in a style that all her culchawed set enchants, but ray friend, 'twix, you and me, it would chill a man to aee how she stitched a patch on the old man's pants. It is said that coun try editors wear a belt to hold up their pants instead of suspenders. Wlien they get word from home that there is nothing for dinner, they simply tighten up one hole, and feel too full for utterance. A carrierpigeon, owned and trained at Northampton, Mass., recently made a flight from Lynchburg, Va. five hundred and five miles, in 23b. 49m. from the timo of starting. Two Illinois farmers had a dispute about the boundary Uses of their farau. Their dispute is now settled, aad aad so are the lawyers ea their farms. Tht Slaughter of Elephant. Africa exports ovcry year an aver age of from six to seven hundred and fitly thousand pounds' worth of ivory. It is estimated that in the western por. tion of the Continent over fifty-ono thousand elephants aro alauhtereJ an nually, aad though tho trado increases, this is due to eagerness with which the natives are following the policy of de stroying; the "hen which lays the gui don egg. The Indian expo rts is no criterion of tho number of elephants killed In that country, Ceylon and the adjoining regions, for a large quantity, is used for ornaments and other decora tive purposes. Ceina also exports to Europe in the shapo of carved work, nearly all the ivory seat to iU Lon don Telegraph. A use has been found for tho Great Eastern, which has been figuratively, eating her head off at Milford Haven for somo years past. Sho has been chartered by a company which propo ses to bring coals from Scotland to Lon don; and as sho can take 20,000 tons at a time, the enterprise ought to pay. This is not a very dignified employ ment, perhaps, for a ship which was accounted years ago ono of tho won ders of the world, but the owners will not trouble themselves much about tho dignity if they can earn a little ou their shares. The town of Pullman, n suburb of Chicago of ten thousand inhabitants, built and owned by the Pullman Car Company, has no saloons. Their homes are described as roomy and clean, furniture and carpets tasteful and every department thrives. They have no police, no jails and no saloon keeper to cheat their children of food clothing and education. An old Spanish lady named Julia Seniles recently died in San Francis co of osteomalicia, or mollities osso sum a disease in which the bones lose their salts and becomes liko so much gritty gelatine, so that they may be bent into any shape and even tied in a knot. The disease is rare, and results usually from a scrofulous taint.

Ono adds: A man drunk with whisky wants to kill somebody else; one drunk with beer wants to kill himself. Thero's murder in the drink." Three fomalo drummers sent out by a Chicago house have been discharged because they didn't sell as many goods as one roan could. Women can't sell goods worth a shuck, but when it comes to buying them they aro right on deck. Detroit Free Press. A teacher in a female boarding school on hearing a scholar say sho was sweating reproved her as follows: "My dear, bear in mind that horses sweat, men perspire and young ladies get in a glow." An advocate of corporal punish ment for children said, "tho child which once started in a course of evil conduct, is like a locomotivo on tho wrong track-it lakes a switch to get it ofl."
