deep color to his swarthy cheeks.
. 'Law, what makes you turn so red?'
continued Mell, pointing her linger at
him, and laughing bewitchingly.
This only made Jake turn the redder,
aud redder. He seemed in tfe very
last stage of" embarrassment ; tried to
stammer o'tif 'something, bnt tould pro
duce noVqunds that' resembled any words
in the English language. 'At last,' af
ter he had covled off. a little, he got his
tongue and lips in working order once
more, and said 'Mell, I swow you're
too bad to 'cuse ine of turnin red; I'm
no redder 'an you. Law! did I tell you
vhat a wolt hunt I had yeSterday?'
'No,' she replied with ' a 'sorrowful
look, which one' might imagine : was
caused by 'Jake's' untimely 'change ol
the subject !No doubt but she thought
she vas fetching him io a pbifilj -'and
indeed It was time, for 'he had, been

willing, perhaps too willing; ' a'rid".her

in every way she could but it made no
ditlerence: and now. As a last reort.she

Bill Fry soon heard the 1 news, 'and
after putting on his new buckskin suit,
lumbered' lor the 'neck of woods' where
Mell lived.. , He found her as Urightas
ever put in Ins claim, anu was direct
ed to ax dad and mam.' From some
cause or other the old folks Were not
willing, but Bill, and Mell were, so
they hzed upon a plan to marry any
now. UHl went secretly to Mt. Ster
ling, got a license, and that night made
off lor Squire Brown's. . On their road
to U3ppines8, however, who should they
meet but Jake, tie had cot a hint ot
what was going on, and met them on
purpose; knowing precisely how the
case lay. , , . , ,
'Mell,' said he, 'I've fooled you,
that's a fact, and I'm sorry lor it ; hut
it you still like me better than Bill Fry
ust cay so, and I II be darned ll I don't
give him a thunderin' thraahiu', ; take
his license, and old litowu shall marry
us with them richt away.' ' ' ' 1 .
The old love was too strong for the
new, and Mell told Jake to 'pitch in.'
1 hey both pitched in, and sucli a tight
as it was. The brush broke, the dirt
flew, the fists sounded, and skulls crack
ed in such a way, that had one been
within a lew yards, he would have la-
ken it for a herd of buffaloes on a regu-
ar stampede. After h'zhtini: all over
the hazel patch for about au hour, Bill
cried 'enuff.'
'Give me the license then,' said Jake.
No, darned if 1 do!' was the reply;
and at it they went again. This time,
they fought so long that Mell became
uneasy least daylight should come be
fore they got to the Squire's, which she
knew would put an end to their marry-
ng for that day, as the Squire would be
out . with his gun. However, alter
ighting along the road for near halt a
mile, Bill again cried 'enuff.'
Give me the license,' shouted Jake.
'Not unless you pay me the dollar and
bit they cost me,' replied Bill.
Nary Dime, said Jake, beginning
to pitch into him again.
Feeling rather tired of such sport,
Bill handed out the license. Jake thrust

PARIS, June 21, 1855.
The telegraphic advices from Selm&to

the 18 ih', and the decided and areadrutHxa
rupulse, created a great sensation here
The 'details are .awaited with the' must
intense, anxiety,, particularly as to the
extent of the loss,, of which as yet we
have no information, but which douH
less has beeu most dreadfully severe
and the worst anticipations ara; euier
tained. . I will uoi say that this repulse
renders 'more certain the, .final capture
ol Sebattopol, ((or to take it niay:b4 an
impossibility,) but it certaiuly assures
a more extensive and determined effort
on Uie part, of the Allies to effect that
object; for'' the pride both ol England

gigantic efforts will be made to axcpinp

meat in the country has been, iu lk
main, the result of a corrupt movement
of unprincipled politicians, to excite
the Protestant feeling of the people and
lo ride, into, power upon the tide. They
have run foul of the maxim, which they
have so conspicuously set forward a
mong their principles, as if for the pur
pose of exposing the profligacy of the
whole movement, by violating if, prac
tice what they praise in theory. Itis
absurd to deny, that making the mere
religious sentiments' of a man 'he reason
for refusing to vote for him, is a viola
tion of the great principle of relicious
liberty. It is allowing a principle 'of
digqriiuiriating the political aspect of a
vote to lie sound and just; which would
be wicked and unprincipled, if embo
died in a law. If our ueichbors make
their dislike to our Presbyterian senti
ments the ground of their refusing to
vote for us,-it is perfectly useless lo
disguise that we are under political res
ponsibility for religious opinions that,
quoad Hoe, we are suffering for them,
The objectionable feature ia this view
the case is, making religious opinion
unattended by any viciousness of action
growing out of it, a ground for a uni
versal discrimination in political affairs,
affecting' permanently large masses of
citizens. This is out first and great ob
jection to the American or Know Noth
ing party ', it is violating the very prin
ciple' or religious liberty, which it pro
fesses to conserve ; and has adopted a
construction of that principle which
strips it of all practical force, leaving
a dead letter iu the statute book, and
abandoning its control over the politi
cal aetion of the people.
