A C apital G host S tobx .—W* do not generally give muoh credence to ghosts, bat tbe following, which we find in tbe Lynchburg News, appears so intrinsically reasonable in view of tbe awful doom which doubtless awaits the wretch that would swindle an editor, that we cannot for a mo* ment doubt its truth. Tbe story, says the News, "is dedicated in an especial manner to ail newspaper readers." That apparitions do not always wan der without sufficient cause, is proved by tbe well authenticated fact which we give below: "Last Tuesday fortnight as Mrs. , a lady of literary tastes and 8(udious habits, sat^reading in her drawing room, tbe clock on tbe man ilepiece struck twelve ; as the last stroke reverberated througbt tbe apart' meat, the door was flung wide open ; in tbe act of raising ber bead to repel the intrusion (unrung for) of ber ser* vaut, ber eyes rested on tbe form of ber lateiiusband. She screamed and fell senseless on tbe carpet. This brought up such member» of the family as had not retired to rest; re* storatives were administered, and when Mrs. had regained her suspended faculties, being a woman of strong mind and highly cultivated intellect, she felt disposed to consider the whole distress she bad undergone as tbe result of certaia associations between tbe melancholy tale she had l>een perusing and her late loss, op erating upon a partially deranged system. She, however, considered it tdviaable that her maid servant should repose in her chamber, lest any return <>f which »he considered a nervous af*. Action should distress herself and aUrm tbe family. Last Tuesday night, feeling stronger and in better spirits than she bad been for some months. psBt, Mrs. dispensed *itb the presence of ber attendant, retiring alone to her chamber, and «em to bed a little before 10 o'clock. Exactly as the clock sttuck 12, she was awakened from her sleep, and distinctly beheld tbe apparition she had seen before advancing from tbe table, (on which stood ber night amp,) till it stood opposite to and irew tbe curtains of her bed. She leseribed her very blood retreating with icy coolness to her heart from every vein. The countenance of her beloved in life wore not its benevolent «spect ; tbç eyes beaming with affec tion were now fixed with sterned re gard on the trembling being, who, with the courage of desperation, thus adjured him : "Charles ! dear Charles 1 Why are you corae again V' "Jessie!" slowly and solemnly gasped the shadowy form, waving in Iiis band a small paper, "Jessie, pay my newspaper accounts, and let me rest in peace !" MF» To introduce persons who are unknown to each other, is to under take a serious responsibility, and al ways involves the indorsement to each of the respectability of the other. This responsibility should never be undertaken without first ascertaining whether it will be acceptable to both parties to become acquainted, always introduce tbe gentleman to th§ lady —never the contrary. This rule is to be observed everywhere, socially, or otherwiie. Tbe chivalry of eti quette assumes that the lady is inva riably the superior by right of her sex, and that tbe gentlemen is hon ored by being presented. Where the sexes are the same, present tbe younger to the elder, the unmarried to the married, or the inferior in social rank or talent to the superior. A gentle sbonld never be introduced to a lady without first asking her permission. t&~ Jay Cooke, at the beginning of the war, was a banker's clerk in a small town ii Ohio, and lived on a small salary. After becoming agent of the Government to sell its bonds, he made twenty millions of dollars in three years. And in view of these facts, it would be exceedingly difficult to make us believe that the man has a partiole of personal integrity. Jay Cooke signs his name to letters on finance, not a line of which be ever wrote or could write. He would evi dently sign anything involving a swin dle of others, provided the proceeds went into his own pockets.— Pitt&~ burg Workingmen's Advocate.
