BY THOMAS HOOD. Ellen, you have been out.' Well, I know I have.' , To the Kind's head.' ' No, John, no. But no matter. You'll be troubled no more with my drinking.' What do you mean? I mean what I say, John, replied the wife, looking very serious, and speaking very solemnly and deliberately, with a strong emphasis on every word. You will be troubled no more w ith .m v drinking have took it at last.' I knew it!' exclaimed the wretched husband, desperately tossing his arms a loft. as when all is lost. I knew it!' and leaving one coat flap in the hands of his wife, who vainly attempted to detain him, he rushed from the room sprang down the stairs, both flights, by two and three stairs at a time ran along tne pas sacre. and without his hat. or cloves, or stick, dashed out at the street door, swecDinff from the step two ragged lit tie girls, a quatcrn loaf, a basin of trea cle, and a baby, liut ne never sioppeu to ask if the children were hurt, or even to sec whether the infant dripped with rare or molasses. On he ran, like rabid dog, straight forward, down the . i 11 i t . r i liorougn, neeaiess anne oi a pwiei a load, a baker's basket, and butcher's tray. I say,' muttered the errand boy, as he staggered from the collision. Do that again,' growled the placard man as he recovered the pole and board which had been knocked from his shoul der. Mind where you're goin,' bawled a hawker, as he picked up his scattered wares; whilst a dandy, suddenly thrust into the kennel launched after the runner one of those verbal missiles which are said to return, like the boomerang, to those who launch them. But on, on, scampered the Teetotal ler, heedless of all impediments on he scoured like a he Camilla, to the shop, number 240, with the red, blue, and green bottles in the window the chem ist's into which he darted, and up to the little bold man at the desk, with barely breath enough left to gasp out My Wife! Poison! and Pump!' Vegetable or mineral'!' inquired the Surgeon Apothecary, with great profes sional coolness. Both all sorts laudanum, arsenic oxalic acid corrosive sublimate' and the Teetotaller was about to add pine-apple rum, amongst the poisons, when the Doctor stopped him. Is-she sick?' No.' But remembering symptoms overflight, the Teetollar ventured to say, on the strength of his dream, that she was turning all manner of colors, like a rainbow, and swelling as big as a house. Then there is not a moment to lose.' said the. Esculapius, and accordingly clapping on his hat, and arming himself with the necessary apparatus a sort of elephantine syringe with a long trunk he set off at a trot, guided by tne l ee totaller, to unpoison the rash and ill-fated bacchanalian; Mrs. Burrage. And did he save her?' My dear madam, be content to let that issue remain a little, and accumu late interest, like a sum in a savings' bank.' Fow, when the Teetoller, with the medical man at his heels, arrived at his own house Mrs. Burrage was still in her bedroom, which was a great convenience, for before she could account for the in trusion of a stranger, nay, even without knowing how it was done, she found herself seated more zealously thna ten derly or ceremoniously in the easy chair; and when she attempted to expos tulate she felt herself choking with a tube of something, which was certainly nei ther macaroni, nor stick-liquorice, nor yet pipe-peppermint. To account for this precipitancy, the cxaeeerated representations of her hus band must be borne in mind; and if his wife did not exhibit all the dying dol phin-likc colors that he had described if she was not quite so blue, or green, as he painted her, - the . Apothecary made sure she would soon be, and consequent ly went to work without delay, where delays were so dangerous. . Mrs. liurraze, However, was not a woman to submit, quietly, to a disagree able operation against her own consent, so with a vigorous kick and a push at the same time, she contrived to rid her self at once of the doctor and his instru ment, and indignantly demanded to know the meaning of the assault upon her. It's to save your life your precious life Ellen,' said the Teetotaller, looking at her very solemnly. . 'It's to empty the stomach, ma'am,' said the doctor. . Empty a fiddle,' retorted Mrs. Bur rage, who would have added 'stick,' but the doctor watching his opportunity, had dexterously popped the tube again into her open mouth not without a fresh scuffle from the patient. For the Lord's sake, Ellen,' contin ued, the Teetollar, confining her hands, 'do, do, pray do sit quiet.' l'obwob wobble,' said Ellen, Hub bub bub bubble,' attempting to speak with another pipe in her throat, besides the windpipe. . 'Have the goodness, ma'am, to be composed,' implored the doctor. I won t, Bhouted 3irs. uurrage, uav released herself from the in strument by a desperate struggle. 'What . . J . i .... r..? r am 1 io dc pumpuu oui iuu .ni. Tin ' ! J i K en: Juen. saw uiu itnuuu- ler, you know what you have taken.' Corrossivc salts and narcostics,' an swered the doctor. f Arsnic and" corrossive sublimity, said the Teetoller. ' f Oxalic acid and tincture of opium, added the doctor. Fly water and laurel water,' said Mr. Burrage. , f 'Vitrol, prussic acid, and aquafortis, continued the druggist. I've took no such thing,' said the re fractory patient. 'Oh Ellen you know what you said. Well what!' Why, that your drinking should nev er trouble me anv more.' And no more it shall!' screamed the wilful woman, falling as she spoke, into naroxvsms of the wildest laughter. No more it shall, for I've took ' What, ma'am, pray what?' In the name of Heaven what?' Why then I've took the PLEDGE!' 'The Lady's Choice' A Literary & Religious Magazine FOR 1844. ('The Lady's UrcathS.'ReUgiousand Literary Can' and 'Lady s Pearl' united.) REV. CHARLES W.

TURNER F. JACK, Clerk. April 6, 1 844-1 3-2m Dunne- the short time that the Lady's Wreath lms hren before the pubic, it nas acquired the enviabfe reputation ot being the best Dollar lMilifs Periodical m tne uni ted States. No Masrazine has Deen muie generally sought after, and more universal ly admired tne past year, man mc imu Wreath. Its xnlendid Steel Engravings, beautifully colored Floers, literary merit, and neat mechanical execution, have made it the admiration of all. The cheapness and merit of a Dollar Periodical must be apparent, which issues Jflore Steel Engravings and has more and better contributors than could but a short time since be claimed by the best Three Dollar Magazines. Contributions have appeared in the Wreath the past year from such writers as H. T.Tuckerman, II. S. Patterson, M. D. Prof. J. H. Ingraham, Reynell Coates, M. D. S. B. Beckett, Rev. F. A.Clinton, T. Hall Welby, George Pike, A. W. Noney, A. F. Drinkwater, Jack Gasket, F. B. Graham, J. Wheeler, F. H. Duflee, M. F. Wallace, George Lippard. J. T. S. Sullivan, Francis Wharton, Mrs. C. Theresa Clark, Mrs. M. St. Leon Loud, Mrs. Lydia J. Pierson, Miss Mary Howard, Maria F. Waitc, Charles Beaumont, Mary B. Wi'son, Miss Rose Newman, Thomas G. Spear, Charles Hamilton, A. J. H. Duganne, J. M. D. Babcock, Edwin Heriot, G. F. Fverett, A. A. Miller, D, D. John U. Giller, and J. H. Vernon. In addition to the above we have secur ed the Editorial services of Rev. C. W. Denison, long and favorably known to the readers of our best Periodicals, and ar rangements have been made for contribu tions to the Vols, for 1844, from Mrs. Lydia H. Sigourney, Mrs. Caroline Orne, Mrs. Jane E. Locke, Mrs. E. H. Newell, J. G. Whittier, Rev. J. Pierpont, W. H. Burieieh, Esq. and Rev. E. L. Magoon. Besides articles fjom these well known writers; anonymous contributions of supe rior merit appear in each number, making the contents of the Wreath equa!, it not superior to any Periodical in the country. In addition to our STEEL ENGRA VINGS MONTHLY, which are given in no Dollar Lady's Maga zine but the Wreath, we shall continue our llcautiftilly Colored Flowers, the most popular series of embellishments ever issued: an illustration peculiarly ap propriate for the Ladies, and widly sought alter by all lovers ot tne lAMguage of Floivers, In the January Number will appear the first of a series of articles on the Language nf Flowers, which in connection with our Floral Engravings will lurnisn a complete Flora's Lexicon, alone worth a year's subscription. MUSIC, BY POPULAR COMPOSERS will also be published, affording to subscri bers in the country the means of obtafning new music which they would otherwise be deprived of. In addition to the above, every thing new and attractive in the literary world will be sought after, to give interest and novelty to the pages of the Wreath.
