We had a very pood crew ou the LitWy j Sally, and there wa* no prettor fellow ever walked a deck than Bob Small, who was a sailor from a love of the profession, and who had run away from bis borne in New HanijwLtee three "years before, from which he had not beard a word since, and which he had resolved to return to after the present voyage. He was in my watch, and often, under the lee of the long-boat, he would open b heart to me regarding the hopes ami fear*. We were, one night, walking the deck in the moonlight ; the sea just moved to a j ripple beneath the tropical air, when be caught my arm suddenly, and cried: •* look there P - Where P 1 asked. ' There," said he, 44 in the wake of the moon. Don't yon see f There, sore enough, swam an immense shark, just above the water, witbiu a boat's length of us. and we felt that his evil eye rested upon us as we stood there gazing on bim. I felt a sense of uneasiness as 1 saw the monster so near us, and was sensible of a violent tremor in Bob as his hand rested on my arm. "Jack," said he, impressively, "that chap is after me. I ran read my fate in every wrinkle of the water a* it plays around him, and 1 know very well that he will be my tomb." •* Nonsense," I said; '* what i* the use ot indulging in such a feeling as that ? ft is no unusual thing to see a shark, and what if every sailor should take it into his head that he was to be eaten, do you think be would be ?" At that, the monster pare a great swirl in the water, and the ripples flashed in the moonbeams. u Yoo see that, Jack," said be; '• he knows what we are talking about, and it's a settled thing. His mind is made up to have a pick at me, and he will do it." * Whv do you believe so P l l asked, u Oh, he said, 44 I have been too happy. These joyful anticipations of seeing home again, acid getting the forgiveness of the old folk/ if they are alive, and seeing my little sister Myra. have filled me full. | Jack," be continued, turning me around, and looking me squarely in the face, "do TOO believe that a man who disrespected hit hither so much a* to shut him down cellar and run away, has a right to antici pate happiness 1 I served mine so. See that shark; he seems to be laughing at what I say, the infernal beast, if 1 may be ' allowed the expression." I comforted him by telling him he had no reason for hit gloomy hears, hut be mournfully shook his bead. The railing of the " larboard watch" interrupted our conversation, and we turned in. I laid awake but a little while, and could hear Bob sigh deeply as he lay in his berth. The next day, the shark was not visible, but night found us again looking over the lee rail, and, as before, right in the wake of the moon, wi* the huge fish swimming along with his fin out of the water, a boat's length from us. " He's after me," said Bob in a whisper " Nonsense," I replied ; he'* after mc a mucb as you. That night Bob turned in his berth, and his sigh* were piteous. He looked so hag gard and worn the next morning, that Mr Good enough, the mate, noticed it. 44 Ah, Bob," said be, " what'* the mat ter 7" You look like a sick hen." Bob simply replied that he did not feel very well, and turned his attention to hi* duties. '• Time's most op Jack." said be in a whisper; 44 and look there!" Sure enough, there, scarcely a boat's length from the brig, was seen the ominous fin, the black flag of the bucanneer of the finny tribe, and 1 was for a moment shocked. 44 This can't last another day," said he raizing the rail; " and you believe it; 1 see you tremble. You must go up and see the old folks. Jack, and tell 'em bow patient 1 died, and that my life was not thrown away, though I was a runaway. Give them my "cheat, and give little Myra tfo: sea elephant's tooth, with the carving ijffin it, to keep as a memento, and Heaven bless you, Jack." # The poor fellow wept like a child. The whole crew were now attracted along the vessel's side, to see the great fish that was so desirous of our company, and various were the comments made upon it, none of which vwre of the somber charac ter of poor BobWthough they all looked upon it with a feeling of dread. Our cook finally seemed to arrive at a very decisive, though comical, conclusion. He darted into his caboose, from which he reappeared again in a few moment's with something rolled up in an old red shirt, that seemed to send out a steam. " Whit have you got there V' asked the mate. " Brekfu* for shark, sir!" wa the reply, with an expansive grin. He said no more, but threw his bundle far out into the water, before the nose of the shark, which, waking from its supine neaa. darted forward, and immediately swallowed the object. For an instant the monster resumed his pace alongside the brig, but this was succeeded by an evident feeling of uneasiness, and a moment after he levied his length from the water, falling upon the surface with a crush that sent the spray flying in our foreyard. Then he swam furiously in a wide circle about the vessel, leaping occasionally from the water, and turning upon his back. Soon his no tions ceased; and. rolling over, be lay a silent mass upon the water. " Golly 7" said Curacoa, "he got his brekfus, shur. Hot brick warmee tumroak." " Did you give him a hot brick?" said Mr. Goodenough. " Yes, massa," said Blackey, with a grin, 44 and guess he don't 'gree wid 'em." There was a loud laugh at the cook's ex periment, and, turning to speak to Bob, I lound he had left my side. " Where's Bob V I asked. KRID. KURTZ, Editor and Proprietor. VOL.

Theu it seemed sure enough that js**r Rob's misgiving had !>ern verified, ami 1 mourned tlis km*, thinking of uiv own melancholy mission into New Hamp shire to inform hi* weeping friends of the hwe. It in fact cast a gloom over all the vessel, am) we could never understand how he disappeared so suddenly, supposing, however, that his miud, hccoming morbid, had lust ita felanee, and he had leaped overboard while we were absorbed by the Cook's adventure with the shark.

It was something that I was not accustomed to, ami 1 went ou the voyage with much misgiving. 1 stopped at the jirettv little station of Sprue*burg, among the hills, at which a coach wa* waiting to carry passengers to Itimmer, a town souie four miles distant, which was the place of my destination. Tpon this roach Rob's che*l wa* hoisted, hut when 1 attempted to enter I found it entirely full, and the driver's seat was also occupied by two lieside* hiuiselt. 1 there fore looked fur some other mean* ot con veyance The depot master proved my friend, and after a few minute* informed me that a young lady from Rimraer was in town with a wagon, aud would return alone in a short time, and that she would lx- happy to accommodate me with a sear. So I gave directions that the chret should he left at the hotel, a* I was iuformrd that there wa* one, in order that Bob's friend* might not see it, aud await for my fair companion. The wagon was pointed out to me, aud the young lady soon came along, to whom 1 introduced myself, aud. helping her in, I sat beside her; she insisted upon driving, of which 1 was very glad, and 1 was more familiar with a hawser than a horse. She was exceedingly pretty, about seventeen years old, and was in alt respects interest ing. being one of thane bright and spark ling little fairies that are continually sur prises to those who are predisposed to believe that all country productions of the kind are awkward and disagreeable, one of which, however. ! was not. I found her cbattv and pleasant, full of piquant remarks, in which she did not spore me. and I perfectly delighted with her. The con ver sa! ion at last turned on Kiminer. 44 Do you reside there ?" I asked. •• Yea." '* Then, of course, YOU are acquainted with all the people there. Do you know a family by the name of Small i" " Oh, yea, very well !" 44 Is the name of one of its members Myra P " Yes, Myra Small and myself are very intimate; we sing iu the same choir." '• She had a brother P • 4 Y; Bob Small. He was a wild fel low, and went away to sea, years ago." '• Have they mourned him ?" " No, not much; he locked his father in a cellar when he went away, and thi* rath er set theui against him." "Well, I have sad new* for them. I have just returned from a voyage with him, and be was lost at sea." 41 Bad news, indeed, that will be. But he will never shut the old man down cellar again; nor torment poor Myra, will he P • 4 No, but he thought of her at the last, poor fellow, and I have a parting gift for her. from him." I inquired about the old folks, and about Myra, and the conversation lasted until we arrived at the hotel, where she was to put me down, which I chose rather than to go to the house of Bob at once. I waited till the evening before I went on mv tnrlau choir errand. It was a fair night in Sep temisr, the air just beginning to grow a little chilly, and I walked very slowly, al most reluctantly, to an encounter that 1 very much dreaded. My duty to Bob alone sustained me in the effort. The homestead was s substantial farm house, with a lane leading up to it, and turning into which I proceeded on my er rand, mv heart beating a load alarm on mv rib*. The windows were all ablaze with light, and a strain of mu*ic floated to me. from the house, auguring a scene of happi ness and peace within, that I, fiend-like, wa* going to interrupt. Should I go on ?! Yes. duty to Bob impelled me. I approached, and rapped upon the door All was still in s moment, but nobody came. I rapped again, and fancied I heard in response a titter on the inside. This time, however, there was the sound of turning a key or removing* bolt, the door swung open, and there, in the light of two blazing lamps held in the hands of tuy fairv of the wagoti, who 41 sang in the choir with Myra Small," stood my old shipmate Bob, in apparently excellent condition, atd with an expression upon bis face altogethct unlike that which any ghost wears that I ever heard of! 4 ' Bob Small, by all that's rascally!" said I, for a moment regretting that he was not at the bottom of the sea. 44 Yew, Jack," said be, after 1 had entered, 4 ' the very same. I hid away in the run on hoard the brig, ashamed of my wild prog nostic when the cook killed the shark, and I determined that even you should not sec me till you saw me here, as I knew you would, because I knew you would comply with my dying request. So Myra has been down to the depot every day for a week to watch for the big chest, and the fellow along with it, thanking her stars to-day at 1 the fortune which gave you her company. ! She knew you from my description and the . chest." 44 Well. Bob," I said, " I suppose T ought ; to rejoice that you are alive, though bang rne if I would undergo so much inquietude on any account again. And Miss Myra most accept my apology for not recogniz ing her by instinct." Then the old folks came in. and we had a good time all round; the old gentleman informing me of the trick put upon him in 1 shutting him down cellar, which he seemed to relish, a he recalled it, and the old lady looked as pleasant as an Octot>er evening, while Myra beamed ineffably on all. Perhaps 1 ought to finish my story by falling in love with Myra and marrying her; but I found no chance for that, be cause she had a good-looking printer who wa* booked for her*good graces, though she liked me a* the friend of Bob; and I 1 gave her the elephant's tooth, which, years after, 1 saw her youngest liaby cutting its | teeth upon. Bob is now one of the most successful shipmasters out of New York, and I am— the reader's very humble servant. A GOOD MOVE. —The farmer* of Hillsborough Country, N. H., held their last meeting for the season, at Milford, and discussed the important question : " How can we make our farms so at tractive as to retain our young men and women at home ?" It was generally and sensibly agreed upon that the farm residence should be made pleasanter; and much was said of the probable good influence of local libraries, the cultiva tion of music, with a fair allowance of time for recreation, and for escape from daily drudgery. Unquestionably, the New-England farms require hard and pretty constant work at certain, seasons, but there are several months of com parative leisure, a rational improvement of which would render rural life a good deal more tolerable to the young. If "the occupation of a farmer be the noblest of all labor," it would be a great pity if it were necessarily dull. CENTRE HALL REPORTER. English Postal Noting* llonk*.

The amount of the deposit is entered in the book, attested lv the signature of th' Postmaster, and stamped w tth the official stump of the office. This is a sufficient voucher for the depositor, the Government Wing rrajxmsible for its •afc tnuismisxiou to the tieueral Office. The Postmaster send* an account daily to the money-order office in Ismdon of each transaction, with the original signa ture of the depositor.

The last pre caution insure* the honesty of Post masters, liecauae, if the depositor docs not receive his acknowledgment within ten da vs. he must apply for it. which he may do free of postage. Additional depoaita go through the same form, and uiav W made at the same or any other money-order office in the Kingdom The plan is so systematized that one person might go the whole rouud of the three or four thousand Post-office sav ing* Lank.*, and deposit money in each without causing any confusion or etnlair raaament.

A WAB STOKT. -The Fort WavneTnd.,) Journal tells a little story of war. When Gen.

A Colonel in one of the frontier cities or dered his regiment under arms, and without giving the men time to change their clothing and prepare for a long march, he onlered them to the front. 1 hey marched aliout twentv-five miles the lirxt day, and the neat fifteen. Many of the soldier* dropped out of the ranks on the way, and what few arrived at the place of destination were worn out. They complained of the long and tedious marches, and looked over the records, and coming to the conclusion that the march waa unprecedented with regard to length and time, charged their Colonel with tyranny, and inhumanity, and finally inntinied and started for home, and actually walked the whole distance liack, forty miles, iu a single day.

Finally the olds I ascended to the upjx-r swing, and then commenced the more shovry aud |erilou* feats. The little one a bright pretty child of only thirteen years—twined her feet six mt her stronger sister, hanging iu every j variety of posture, and suspended ua 'if l>v mere volition at such a perilous | height above the door.

The importance id placing the biwi uesa of dispensing drug* and medicines in competent hand* is fully iwcogniaed in Prussia, where the moat stringent regulations are enforced in regard to the qualifications of apothecaries. To le --conie an a|K>tberary'a apjtrentice there, an applicant must first pa** an examin- ' ation in laitin, physics, botany, atid other natural sciences, before a Ixautl j comprising the di.*triet physician and a notary ; and if this is satisfactory, he gets a permit to serve a* an apprentic for lour year* in a pharmacy, during w liich be u allowed to c mpound drugs iu the laboratory, but nut to put up pre scriptions until the fourth your. and then only under the strict surveillance of the proprietor or of a responsible drag clerk.

After this the clerk must spend one year in the university to complete his studies, and then comes still another examination, after whieh, if he comes out of the final examination with credit, he receives his diploma ss an aixithccary. and ia ullowed to bny an ••stnblished stand or to leromr a member of a firm already in existence, if he can ; bnt ho cannot net up a new pharmacy, a* the nttmltcr of these is regulated by law. one Wing allowed fur everv 5,01)0 inhabitants. The price of m<d!eiiies are also regulated by law, and are the aa:ne in every drug store in Prussia. An apothecary niny give away medicines if he sees fP ; bnt he is not allowed to sell them for either lean or more than the established price. No man can buy a pharmacy in ITusaia un less he has gnincd sn apothecary's; diploma.

Hire at last succeeded in getting a tol *n in terview with Iter, atfd learning that alio was suffering and unhappy, contrived to get her out of Meheinet'a house, aud to take her to Hyr*. There A*li-Melek for mally embraced I'hriatianity, and waa baptised uudor the name of Angelina. Eight months afterwards Boxandra returned * itb her adopted charge to Con stantinople, where they remained un molested for about a year. In the uioau timc Mehemet beset the Turkish author ities with iuqiurt unities. He declared that hia brother, Miltiadm, having fallen iu love with Angelica, and desiring to marry her, had coerced her against her will, in concert with the rent of his fam ilv, to alauidun the Muasulim-n faith, in which as a Circassian she waa born, and jirofcaa the Christian religion. Tlie Mus sulman authorities at length gave ear to thene tatem-uta, and iletertuined to take nroeeedencr against the Christian meru it-r* of Meheuiet's family for the pur pose of trausferring tin- girl to the charge of Meheuiet hum-elf. Accordingly, on the 2l*t of January last, the voung broth er, Miltunics, was arrested by the Turk isb iM>lice. Angelica, wartnsl in time, sought and found refuge in the Human Embassy ; the police hunted in vain for her, but, in addition to Miltiadea, ar rested Mchcinct's old father, aged seven ty years, Iloxaudra, and her yonng sis ter, Ariste. who were all incarcerated in the Zantieth. Tlie houses of all relative* and friemls of this quirt Greek family were a.-arched, ami iu ' some instances, it is stated, in a very brutal manner. The houses of other respectable |ieuple were also enter ed, and iu one of them a young lady who was seriously ill, wa* so alarmed by the threat* of the police that aire died in a few days after their visit. At this stage of the proceedings General Igualicff, the ltiissuui Amlmjuador, took np the matter with his usual energy. On hia repre sentations, all the }iersons so unccrmo niously arnsbtl by the Turkish police were sel free aud restored to their home*. His Excellency, mom-over, insisted upon a definite and legal solution Is-iug giving to the religions status of the young Cir* caasian. The result has been that in conformity with the procedure establish ed by law and confirmed by i-twtom, An gehea appeared twice before the proper < Htonian authorities, and declared each time her firm resolution to remain in the Christum fnith which she had formally embraced. A few days later Angelica, accoiu|Mmicd by her faithful friend. Box audra, left Constantinople for Greece. In Jail far Debt. The following anecdote is told of M. Wiert*. the (ieraian painter, who was soim-times called tlie craxv artist : After having finished a iiortrait of the old aristocratic Countess de M , who preteijlel to be only thirty when nearly sixty, ahe refused to accent the tainting, saying that it did not look anything like herself, and that her most intimate frirnds would not recognise a single fea ture of heria on that piece of canvass. Wiertx smiled kindly at the remark, and as a true knight of old. gallantly recon ducted the lady to her carnage. Next moniing there waa a grand disturtianor in the Hue de la Madeline. A crowd was Bithcred before a window, and the fol wing words were wliisj>ered from ear to ear : " la the Countess de M— really in jail for her debts f" Wicrta hod ex ercised a little vengeance towards hia no ble but unfair customer. A* soon as she hod refusal the portrait, he set to work and jiainted a few iron liars un the pie ture, with these words. "In jail for debt" He exhibited the painting in a jeweller's window, in the principle street in Brussels, and the effect aas instan taneous. A few hours later the countess was back in Wiertx ' studio, pouring in vectivea on him at high press uro—to nave exhibited her likeneaa under such acan didoua circumstances. " Most noble lady," was the artist's reply, " vou said the painting did not look suything like yourself, and that your most intimate friends would not have n-cognized a single one of your features in the pic ture. I wanted simply to test the truth of vour statement, tnat is all 1" The por trait waa taken away, the city laughed, the artist charged double price, and gave the amount to the poor of the city. How A SCHOOLBOT (LOT Ixxrr.—The Boston Tr<rrWUr tells this story: The pet of a family, residing not far from I>s Orange street, is a boy who has recently Saascd his fifth year, and having just ngned his first jacket and trousers, is attending n primary achool. The other afternoon he failed to come home at the usual hour, much to the alarm of the household, and after a long searrh, lie was found, some time after dark, at the Providence IVjiot. He was sent to txd without much explanation, though it is possible his treatment wna what Solomon would have recommended, in such an emergency. The next morning he was down to the breakfast tabb-, evidently none the worse for the lessoff anil per haps the wiser. Taking advantage of a lull in the conversation customary at the morning meal, he turned his grave coun tenance toward the head of the table, and givhig free vent to hi* over-charged mind lie exclaimed, "I'll tell yon, mamma, how it happened. After school, I went part of the way home with Mary , and at the corner of a atreet where she left nie, I kissed her, and she kissed me, and then I found I *M lost." There was an explosion around the table, just abftut that time. It is suspected this is not the first young gentleman who lias lieen lost under similar circumstances. IN A WRHTKBN village a charming, well preserved widow had la en courted and won by a physician. Hhe had children ; among them a crippled bov, who had been petted, and, if not spoiled, certain ly allowed great "freedom in deliate." The wedding day was approaching, and it was time the children should know they were to have a new father. Calling the crippled boy, the widow said : George, I am going to do something before long that I would like to talk about with you. " I am intending to marry Dr. Jones in a few daya, and—" " Bully for you, Ma ! Does Dr. Jones know ii ?" Ma caught her breath but failed to articulate a response. Mr. De llrownr's FiperiwruL Mr llerliert de Browne aa( in Uia liixurioutt bachelor establiahtneut in lllatik street, and pondered deeply.

For the fortune they would wed its owner. "Deuce take this money !" he exclaim ed ; " 1 wish I'd never had a farthiug, and then . lint, botheration, then I should have been too ixwr to marry any way. Why couldn't I liave had just wwdth enough fur all inv wants and nothing more ? I'll foil them, though, the mean adventuresses !" A furious pull at tlie lell-rope brought the housekeeper to the room in a hurry. " Pack up your traps, Mrs. Riukle," he exclaimed*abruptly, 4 'for I'm going to close the house.' It was evident that he hsd come to *ome conclusion. " Shut up the house, Mr. lie Brow lie f* ejaculated tlie housekecpor, almoat be lieving she had lost her reason. " Why such a thing has not occurred since your Ismeutevl uncle took posseiwion five aud forty vearw ago.

She then rcinciulx-red she had some friends she had not seen fur year*. Three days latter, Mr. Herliert de Browne was safely domiciled in a quiet hxlging-house, arid shortly afterwards h<- I kegaii to sell his diamond rings and seals, aud other paraphernalia of fasb lotiable hie, as well as dnws himself in plainer clothea.

He only laughed and snapped hia finger* at them behind their bacla. Had his adversity la-en real lie would not hare frit like laughing. Then came the time when this circle of acquaintance* got narrowed dowr to three. But three of Ins former friends still clung to him. true in adversity. It is no wonder he giew misanthropic. Out in the street one Jy he met a carriage containing some of his former acquaintances, who had been a) went from the city since he had rioaed hia house He thought they would not notice h>m. bat each iumale of the carriage bowed politely aa of old. " The* have not heard the news !" he muttered, cynically. He waa mistaken. That night the owuer of the carriage came to see him " Rather rioae quarters, my friend," be mid. aa he took a calm survey of Herbert'a not very pretentious surround ings. " Pretty close, that'* a fa<-t." said Mr. Lb- Browne, Icily. " But since I lost my property —of which I suppose you haven't heard—l have become quite economical !"* " But I hiTc hrtrd !" orifld hi* auditor, abruptly, " mil that i* why I came. 1 too* yon needed (n<ml uow, if mt, and the fart i—well my daughter. r— --1 tn.au 1 came to offer you the position of head clerk in my counting house. ill vou except it V " Ahem !

I hice cosily snuggled in the ltrnlard tnanaion. it was not long before he wondered why he ha<l not noticed Susie Itrandarl before. She did not seem to feel alve him, notwithstanding the wide difference in tlieir positions, and treated him aa ivinliallv—more cordially, he thought— tluui before the change to hia fortunes. He would not liave been human had he not learned to love her. The climax oamc when she gave a grand party. Then, before the elite of the city, hc did not hesitate to receive at tentions from him. on which but one construction could lie placed. He thought ber quite a heroine, and asked for no further proof than could ahe love him. The next afternoon they met in linr fat her'a library, where he had waited to see her. + " Susie," he aaid, aa soon an the usual courtesies lutd been exchanged. "I come to von this morning to learn my fate. I know the difference in our po sitions. nnd would not urge you—only let your heart decide. My hoart I lay liefore vou."

The wedding vu vpry nn pretention*, as liecame the straitened circumstance*; nud he waa in a oonatant eostacy aa he tlionglit of her surprise when he should tell her that liia fortnne still remained. He sent for Mm. Rinkle to eome and re el ja-n the houao, and to put it in con dition to receive ita mistreat*. Meantime, they tarried at her father's. " Herbwrt," aaid hi* wife one day, "I havea favortoaak. Will yon grantit ?"

"How did yon find that out ?" he gasped. " I knew it all the time. When I heard that you were penniless, papa went directly to vour banker and learned the contrary. I think we managed pretty well." '• I think you did," cried her husband desperately; "but do yon think I'll en dure it ?" " How can you help yonxself ? We are married now. Yon can't apply for a divorce." " No, I can't; but " " Then what will you do ?" " Anatfer me one question : Do you really love me ?" "Ye* I do." "Walt, if you hire me, wa will drop the subject." " I think you had bettor." aha said quietly ; "and lend papa the money." Aud like a sensible man, he lent it Italian Adtrnturrr* and Heiresses. A letter frutn an Italian correspond ent aays : There is an ingenious coolness about the Italian people which is delirious, sod which I am, aa yet, at a loss to con sider as an effluence* of simplicity or of impudence. Examples are not lacking iu all gnuhw of society, from the goat herd, who shake* water from the I-.uie in hi* sleeve into the tumbler while ha draws your milk in the twilight, to the faakioualde young gentleman of good family who uublualuuglv pat* Mnrthm* before his name, when be lays siege to an American hemes. An eminent rituwu of Chicago wa* waited upon the other evening by one of the managers of his hotel, who'said that an Italian gentle man wished leave to prtweut himself. Having uu Italian acquaintances, he na turally inquired closely into the nature of the desired visit, arid after a bit of I cross-examination, elicited the fact that the visitor wished to make an application for the hand of his daughter, a very pretty and interesting girl. As may lie unsgiueu, the application was promptly dismissed, and the young lady, upon lier father's repeating the. to him, inexplicable and astounding cir cumstances , could not remember having ever exchangtal a word with an Italian gentleman since entering the country, or having even received any of those *oh> eoro euwpUmeuta which even well-bred young men think it no impropriety to address to the attractive stranger whom they chance to meet in walking or shop ping. Ho the matter dropped for the nonce; but a morning or two later, a young Italian walked into the United States consulate and inquired of the Consul if be knew on Americas whom he named The (ousel replied in the neg ative, adding that he had never board of aav such man. fare young man left theofflce, but noon returned, bringing in writing the name of the gentleman I have referred to above, and the consul affirmed his own acquaintance with both the name and the bearer of it Then the imjnirer demml to know particularly the social standing of Mr. This being handsomely vouch ed for, he proceeded to aay that his in vestigation* werr on liehnlf of n cousin who desired to marry the daughter; and now that the matter of family and posi tron was satisfactorily defined, be wished further to know if Mr. would give a downy of 100.000 francs to Italanoe an eqaafsum which his uncle would furnish to his son ss a marriage portion. At this point the consul naturally sug gested that, the buanms living purely a family one. the admirer would do best to conduct it directly, and asked what the young lady's sentiments were, and if such 'round-vbout dealing were to her taste. To all which the ambassador calmly re plied that hia cousin had never exchang ed s syllable with the young lady, but had Otuy happened to see her at a glov er's, having then and there derided to make her hia own if the family and the funds were np to his standard ; that, hav ing failed in advancing himself by the interview sought with the father, he had had recourse to the consulate, hoping that some avenue of communication might be opened for him by official in tervention. His touching confidence was. alas ! misplaced, and the messenger went empty sway. A Parts lotk A correspondent speaks as foOowa of a I'unman mob: In the scene* of monkery and savagery combined women and </oma bore a conspicuous part I saw a woman rush up to a carriage and snatch a manuscript from the hands of an oAcrr. whereupon the officer knocked the woman headlong, and a soldier anatcheil the document from the wo men. This happened in the midst of a mjn.nl of cavalry, and the wonder was tlist the woman waa not trampled to death. She scrambled up and made off. I aaw a feeble old man beaten almost to death for handing his snuff-box to a Herman soldier. He waa knocked over and jumped OJWHI. but succeeded in scrambling into the ranks of hia friends, " the enemy." Several saved tlieir live* by the same tactics. Among tltem were two coi respondents, one of whom was dragged slung the pavement by the lege fur some distance, before he could get free from hia " enemy." He waa recog nised by a Clerman officer with whom he had camjiaigned in the provinces. A few mintibw after his interview he was surrounded and well-nigh mnndemL One of the victima of his revengeful mania waa an Englishman who had brought the Engli*h food for starving Paris and had juat given a food ticket to a poor Woman And Imt for thia wo man's fib that ahe had known the gen tleman for several vears he might have beeu sacrificed on the spot to the noble rage of the grateful Parisians. When the (lermans clicked their ueedle guns or brought their bayonets to the charge, von should have seen the mob skedaddle. "They were then in their native element running. The Parisian mob is aa cow ardly as it is savage. The tiger is aa timid as the monkey, ami the monkey is as cruel as the tiger. I aaw a hundred of the savage monkeys cowed and dis persed bv one tall Bsvaiian, without arms, I~fiey were in pursuit of a wo man who had given them some oflbnee. The woman fled to this Bavarian, who folded hia arms and looked down upon the skulking flenda with sardonic con tempt.
