The following is an anecdote of Dr. Johnson : Hoswell asked Johnson if there were no possible circumstances un der which suicide would be justi fiable. "No." was the reply. "Well," saysHcswell, "suppose a man has been guilty of some fraudthat he knew would bring infamy upon him, and that he was equally aware would be found out." " "Why, then," says Johnson, "in that ease let him go to some coun try where he is not known, and not to the devil, where he is known. A story is related of a Turk who married ; his wife, when un veiled, proved to be very ugly. A few days after the nuptials, she said to him, "My life, as you have many relations, I wish you to in form me before which of them I ma- unveil." "My soul," said the husband, "if thou wilt but conceal thy face from me, I care not to whom thou siiowest it. m c A robust clergyman, meeting a physician, ran to hide behind a wall. Heing asked the cause, he replied, "it is so long since I have been sick, that I am ashamed to look a physician in the face." 1: ii uc gut a wiie," was the laconic reply. 9" . And exchange records the mar riage of Jenh M. Sjrange and Elizabeth Strange, as a strange event. We presume the next event will be a little stranger. A ccntleman liavinga horse that started and broke his wife's neck, a neighboring squire told him he wished to purchase it for his wife to ride upon. - "Xfo," replied the other, ''I will not sell the- little fellow, I intend to marry again my sell.

"Were you ever cross-questioned, Mr. Jones V "Yes, when questioned by my wife, after spending the evening abroad cross enough in all con science." Some one says of a certain con gregation, that "they pray on their knees, on Sunday, and prey on their neighbors the rest of the, week."

That horrid old bachelor, Tom Crabbit, replies unhesitatingly, "the undertaker!" te I speak -within bounds," as tho pris oner paid to the jailor. THE CRUMPLED ItOSE-IiEAr. TnE carriage was at the door, ready to convey us to a ball given by the Earl of D , in honor of our recent nuptials. Ellen was still in her dressing room I h id left her there completing her toilet ; and while awaiting her appearance, I half buried myself amid the luxurious cush ions of an Ottoman, and revelled in sweet dreams of the past and blessed anticipa tions of the future. I had been three weeks a husband, the happiest of ths h.ip- py. My bride was young lovely, loving and beloved my fortune ample iny health and spirits excellent and my friends many and pleasant. But .there was one crumpled rose-leaf in the Sy barite's blooming bed, and even my re verie was not all joy. In order to explain . the little incident which had slightly ruf fled my composure, it will be necessary to recall a previous period in my history. Among the numerous aspirants to the fair hand of Ellen Fitzroy, there was none whose attractions I had so much cause to dread as those of my friend, the hand some and fascinating Lord Henry de Lisle. He was gay, good-humored and thought less ; and though evidently sincere in his devotion to the beautiful girl, possessed an elastic temperament which would be sure to rebound from disappointment. I on the contrary, had staked my all upon the issue ; :md whilst my friend, with the light-hearted carelessness peculiar to his character, allowed me to profit by many an opportunity which Ikj might have im proved to his own advantage, I was jeal "usly. fearful of his slightest advance in er favor. As for Ellen, she was all gon eness and sweetness to both; and to a asual observer there was not a percenti le shade of difference in bar manner to wards Lord Henry and myself. But I, vho watched her with a lover's solicitude, ietected much that was invisible to others, vhether favorable to my wishes or other ise, I could not for my life determine. saw the soft blush spring to that youth il chock at my approach, as if a rose ic rose of love were just born in her eart ! but whenever I dared to speak of assion and of hope, though her sweet loath smiled as bewuchmgly as ever, er e3'es, downcast or averted, were sure ) fill with tears ; and she would often irn abruptly from me, as if my presence ere painful, and linking her arm with a ; ster s freedom in that of my friend, suf- , r him to lead her unresistingly away. ne evening it was the eve of her birth iv, which was to be celebrated by a ball ' i the ensuing night no one was present 1 ive her listers, Lord Henry, and myself, he young ladies were gaily discussing leir dresses for the occasion, and Ellen arning playfully towards us, asked if she hould wear diamonds or pearls, ' " Oh ! diamonds in that beautiful dark r, by all means," exclaimed Lord Henry. '' Pearls and blue eyes," said I, in a low tone. For an instant those eves were raised to mine, and though immediately with drawn, there was something in their elo quent glance which made my heart throb with emotions of hope and rapture, such as I had never before experienced. The sisters meanwhile were unanimous in the condemnation of my taste, and in appro val of Lord Henry's ; and then with arch looks and meaning tones, wondered what Ellen would wear now.' Ellen blushed and smiled, but did not speak; and I unable to command the feelings which that thrilling look had raised, hastily took my leave. The visions of that night decided my fate; for ldreamed of leading the sweet girl to the altar; and early the next morn ing, after purchasing a pearl chain of rare beauty, I enclosed aud sent it in a letter, containing an ardent avowal of affection, and requesting that if there were the slightest hope of reciprocity, its pledge might be her wearing my gift on her birth day night. The day passed in a fever and ague of hope and fear, and in the evening at a most unceremoniously early hour, I drove to Lady Fitzroy's. I was the first arrival but was soon joined in the drawing room by Lord Henry, and in a few moments af ter, by the sisters of Ellen. The young est, a gay, thoughtless thing, who was wild with delight at being allowed to ap pear for the first time at a ball, exclaim ed, the moment she saw us, " Ah, you may both wear the willow now. Ellen will have nothing to do with either ; she has lent her diamond chain to Gcorgiana, and has given me her pearl. To the last, particularly," she continued, with an em phasis playfully malicious, she declares she has conceived a sudden and uncon querable aversion." .4s she finished speaking, the handle of the door moved, as if a tremblous and hesitating hand were upon it it turned the door half opened there was a mo ment's pause and Ellen, with a faltering step and an air of timidity wholly at variance with her usual graceful self-possesion, slowly entered the room. As I . sprang forward to lead her to a seat, tho color mounted to her temples ; but my heart was chilled; for I looked in vain for a glimpse of my morning's gift, from ths rich braids of d.'rp brown hair to tha curved and snowy throat it was not there ! An I I was just about to murmur a re pro ich for her cruelty, when the trembling of her hand upon" my ana attracted my attention towards it. Vrhat was my emo tion whon I perceived the faint light of iho.-se beautiful pearls, struggling through . the folds of a full gauze sleeve, which draped her delicate wiiht. The dear girl unwilling that any but tha eye of lovo should detect her choice, converted the ' chain into a bracelet. I could hardly re- frain from raising it to my lips; but a' strong cUbrt at self command proved puc- ' cessful, and I had my reward, when to wards the close of the evening, I contriv ed to detain her alone iu thv conservatory, and won from her. faltering "tips a timid confession that my attachment was re turned. And now for the "rufiled roso leaf." We had passed the few weeks immedi ately succeeding our marriage in a hap py retirement at a country seat, and had returned t town the day previous to that with which my f-tory commences. As this was to be Ellen's first appear ance as a bride, I felt a little love-like anxiety that sue should wear my birthday gift the pearl chain, the associations with which were, I doubted not, as pleasant and dear to her memory as to mine. Bat the "crumpled rose leaf." I had slightly hinted my wish before I left her, as I said in her dressing-room; and while I lingered at the door in fond admiration of her cxccllng lovliness, sho turned smilingly towards me, and raising a diamond band to her brow, snid, in a playfully positive tone, " I think I shall wear this to-night ; I don't like pearls verywelL" It was the recollection of this, that, in spite of her -sportive manner, had disturb ed my repose. Although Lord Henry had been among the first and warmest iu his congratula tions upon my en x a gem I hud net yet forgotten the uneasiness his attc-r.tions to ii i m tucn nan creates, anu uie Signt oi rn diamonds forcibly recalled my foimcr fears. Gradually yielding to my jealou3 medi tations, I lay, with half shut eyes, absorb ed in dreamy reverie. One by one, how ever, all darker and colder feelings melt ed away, as I thought of her exquisite grace and beauty, the bewitching sweet ness of her disposition, and, more than all, her affectionate devotion to me. As I be came more drowsy, these thoughts became more and more indistinct, and at length I was conscious onlv of a vague sensation of luxury and happiness, when the voice of Ellen roused me from my trance. In a few moments I fount myself in the splen didly lighted apartments of the Eail of D . I was not aware that Ellen had left my arm until I caught a glimpse through the crowd, of her elegant form, encircled by the audacious arm of Lord Henry de Lisle, and l!o:iting like a dream of light, through the mazes of the waltz ! Strange to say, until that moment, 1 had quite forgotten my jealous fears about her choice of ornaments I had not even noticed her dress. What then was my surprise and anger, when at every turn of the dance, the glare of diamonds broke upon my view, flashing like stars through her luxuriant hair. There was a sort of triumph in their blaze that I knew not how to brook. There was triumph, too, in her own beaming smile; and worse oh! worse than all thero was joy, exul tation, defiance, iu tlu bold black eyes of Lord Henrv, as he met mv look of aston ishment and rage. I thought 1 had never seen her look unlovely till then. She had, never waltzed before with any one but me. At last an opening in the crowd revealed her whole figure to my view. Her grace ful head, her soft and exquisitely moulded neck, her arms, her very waist, were all wreathed and radiant with the richest and . most beautiful brilliants. Sho moved . literally in an atmosphere of splendor. But where could the thoughtless creature have obtained them? Could they have , been the secret gift of Lord Henry ? Thcrb was distraction in the thought. Her dress, too! When I left her at her toilet, sho was arrayed, at my request in the bridal satin, whose pure and snowy hue seemed peculiarly appropriate to that etkerial re finement of bcautv for which she was re markable. Now, for the first time, I ob- , served that over this sho wore a light robo of rose-colored gauze, the wavy folds of -which floated around her as she moved, 1 like the blushiug mist of. morn around a star. Animated by tho wild,' voluptuous music, the increasing rapidity of the . dance, and the concentrated gaze- of - THIS OFFICE.
