Uriels l'omeroy tells tlio lollowing : Another time we were tiavcling on grounds wc lmJ no ris;l.t to tramp over. The only excuse was like that til milita ry ncccNity it was butter fishiug '.hr'o tho farms where the trout haJ been pre tcrveil than tho open lots where all could fi-h. It wns early morning. RTe had risen nt three, r'uldon ten miles, and struck the creek ns tho trout were ready for breakfast. Looking carefully for a shel tered place to hiteh our horses, we slyly Crept on behind iences, etc., till we reached tho part ot the stream not gen" crully fished. A farm bouse stood a quarter of a mile away. We saw the luiiming smoke curling lightly lrom a stove-pipe saw a .nan and two boys come out to do chores saw two women busy about the door, and the ferocious Lull-dog wandering about tho yard. Jf ever we Jislied closo it was then. INot a whisper to disturb tha birds, or the owner of the laud. We crawled through the grass dodged behind clumps ol alders, and lifting large speck. led beauties ont of tho water till our basket was full. This was the time to havo gone ; but the trout were so large aud bit so readily, that wc could not withstand the temp tation, so wo decided to string aud hide what we had, and take another basket ful. So at it wo went. Jso sooocr would the hook touch the water than we Lad a trout. Wo forgot tho house, the man, tho boys end the dog ! (Suddenly there was a rushing thr'o an oat Geld, as if a mad bull were com ing ! Wc looked toward the house, aud saw tho farmer and his two boys on the fence, tho women in the door, and tin. bull.uog bounding toward us. Wc saw it all we had been discovered. The well-trained dog had been sent to hunt us out, and, ns the matter nppeared, it was sale to bet he was doing that thing right lively. To outrun a dog waa not to bo thought of. There was no time to lose. Ho cleared a fence, came for us just as we reached a front scat on a limb above his reach. Here was a precious go! A vicious bull-dog under tho tiec, and a farmer and two big boys ready to move down tipen our works. It was fight, foot race or fangs ! The farmer yelled to his dog "Watch him, Tige !" Tige proposed to do that little thing, aud keeping his eje on u;i, seated him self under tho tree. Then spoke this ugly farmer man ' Just hold on thnr, stranger, till we get breakfast; theu we'll come and see you ! It you nrc in a hurry, however, you can go now 1 Watch him, Ti;;e !" We surmised trouble uito much; for twice had the bold man of bull -dogs and ngiiculturc elegantly wholloped in nocent touii.sts for being seen on his suburban prcmi.-cs. His reputation as a peace man was not good; and there tirose a large heart to our throat ! Time is the essence of contracts, and the saving ordinance for those in trou ble. We bad a stout liuo in our coat pocket and a largo hook intended for rock bass if wc failed to take trout. And, us good luek would havo it, wo had a nice sandwich aud a piece of boiled corned bed in our other pocket. Wc called tho dog pet names, but be wasn't on it ! Then wc tried to move down when he'd move up! At hut we trebled our bass line, fastened the great limerick to it, baited it with '.he corned beef, tied the end of tho line to a limb, aud angled for dog ! Tigo was in appetite. He smelt of the beef; it was very nice, lie swallow, cd it and sat still with his eyes on us for more, but with no friendly look beaming lroiu his couoteuaueo. Not any ! When we pulled gently on the line it was fast ! Tige yanked and pulled, but 'twas no use ! The atteution of the canine was diverted from us, his business was being doue by another line ! We quickly slid down the tree com. ing near blistering our back doing ii seized the basket and pole, and straight way went thence somewhat lively. We found our string of fish, and reached the buggy aud a commanding pot in the road, in timo to see the stur dy yeoman trove forth. Wo saw him and his cohort?, male ond female, move t lowly, as if in no haste, We saw them look up the tree. Wo saw in auxious group engaged abou.' the dog. We came quickly home, and kindly left the bass line and hook to the farmer. JOILVF. MO 0!U Editor A Proprietor. A Parisian Scandal. A most extraordinary trial is jus now going on hero. The Schumachers, man and wife, sue their daughter, the Maniuis d'Or valt, far a petition atimetitriire, to keep them frotu starving. There seems little to choose betweeu the different actors in this dark drama. The evidence is most contradictory, and tho whole affair is a dismal picture of wickedness and de pravity. Tho Sehumaekers live in a hovel ; the father is a cab-driver, while his wife acts the part of a groom, and cleans out the stables. They declare themselves so poor and indebted, that they cannot even procure tho necessa ries of lilo. Their daughter lives in tho ltuo St. llooorc, in a sumptuous apartment servants, carriages, horses, and everything she can desire. At the age of fifteen her parents thrust her out doors. In a short time her beauty had won for her the attention of a host of rich and noble admirers; she became quite a la mode, una was well knowu in certain questionable society by the uame of Madame de Labruycre, uutil she was thirty-sis years old, when she married tho Marquis d'Oi vault, Counte de lleau regard and Maubreuil, briugiug him a fortune of no less than a million of francs, besides furniture, jewels and car. riages. Tho Marquis, who, at tho age of 82, gave his ancient name, and in re turn secured a life of luxury, had run through an astonishing career. Soldier under the First Empire, he became Cap tain, and obtained tho cross ot the Le gion of Honor. On the day of tho en try of the allied armies into Paris, he was scon galloping with his cross tied to his horse's tail, and gained liirnsclt considerable popularity by attaehiug a a cord around tho neck of the statue of Napoleon I. Later he managed to get himself condemned to five years' impris onment ; but this he escaped by flying to England. Some years after he rc turned to France ; aud, one day, when a grand ceremony was being performed at (he Cathedral at St. Dennis, ho walk. ed up to the Talleyrand, and, before the King and all the Court, struck him to the "round an act for which he was again joudemued to five years' impris onment. Such is the man who is now charged with sbetting his wife's cruelty toward her father and mother. On the other hand, it appears that the parents, whose poor s!yle of living is ascribed to Jicre avarice, are said to have had re. course to the most violent and disgrace ful means to obtain money. Out of this complicated story of wickeducss and depravity. I gather that the true reason of the anger and hatred of the family Schuiackcr is, that the Marquis and Marquise have constituted a legiti mate child of the lady heir to their name and property. How the Court will decide in such a difficult and tang led case wil not be known for a few days. Cor. London TtJeyntpU. Mistook t tiE Article. A young lady stepped into one of the streei cars the other day, and dropped her hand kerchief upon a vacant scut, as much as to say ' taken," whilst slio advanced to tho other etd of tho car to deposit her fare. Meantime a nicely dressed young man jumped in and sat down on the handkerchief without observing it. The young lady, after paying her fare, turn cd back, discovered to her chagrin her scat was occupied, and sat down oppo site, ladies making room foi ber. De siring not to lose her handkerchief, she looked intently toward the place where she had left it, hesitating whether to ask for it or put- Discovering tbe di re :tion of her looks, all eyes on the op posite side of tho car were soon bent on the young man. Finding himself tho object of so much attentiou, he himself looked and discovered to his horror something whito on which ho sat, the end peeping out. He mistook its character. To cover it with his hand, and to tuck it nicely uway, was the woik of a few momeuts. None in the car tut tho young lady knew that the some thing white" wa' a handkerchief, and hesitating still more to atk him, sLe lost it. Fat, aud Union, JtlDOWAl', PEXXA. FEMIL'AIIY 15, LEAP YEAR.

Dr. Sawbones having finished the am putation of a leg of one of his patients, a near relative of tho latter took him aside aud said to him : " Doctor, do you thiuk that your pa tient will recover ?" " Recover ! there has neve been the least shadow of a hope for him." "Then what u the use of making him suffer?" " Why, my dear follow, you could not say bru'ally to u sick man, You are dy ing.

A clergyman in the West, catechi sing tho youth ot his church, put the question from a catechism to a girl " What is your consolation in life and death ?" The girl smiled but did not answer.
