For a few minutes the flush of excite
mcnt destroyed the calm, balanced ctate
of young Graham's mind. But he per
ceived this, and confined his moves to
important and safe ones, until his pulse
beat more quietly. And now came the
severest struggleyet. "Now or never !"
thought Graham, who readily acknowl
edged that it was a happy accident rath
er than skill to which he was indebted
for his present decidedly advantageous
For nearly a half an hour both par
ties continued to play with such caution
'that but a single piece was taken; but
now each seemed determined to bring
the game to an issue, and soon the board
had on it nothing but four kings two
for each. Just at this time Anna came
to the window and seeing the position of
affairs, turned pale, and felt a sensation
of taintness, but she was riveted to the
Spot. The motherjs interest, too, had
Vcomc excited, and she came to the door
and stood also looking upon the board.
The old man sat with his hand on his
mouth, fingering his lips, his usual posi
tion when deeply interesteJ in his fa
vorite game; and Graham leaned his
head. upon his hand, his countenance,
though abstracted, indicating sadness of
fce'ing mingled with hope. The four
kingswerc near together, and each was
evidently intent ou reJucing the num
!crofthe other to one, and then block
ing that.
After studying and calculating moves
fcr about five minutes, the old man cau
tiously passed one of his kings to ano
ther square. Quick as thought his an
tagonist made a move, and then with a
long aspiration awaited the result.
"Jupiter P again ejaculated the old
man, closing his fingers tight upon his
under lip. A long pause ensued, and
at last the move was made.
' Hurrah'." exclaimed Graham, in a
loud voice, lifting his head suddenly from
his hand. He gave a king for a king,
and having the last jump, so alighted, as
completely to hem him in, or "block"
the old man's only remaining king
thus winning the game at the last extre
mity. "Hurrah, Hurrah, Hurrah '." he
cried, and leaned back in an ccstacy of
For a moment or two the old man
seemed chagrined at his defeat, but he
recovered himself quickly, and grasping
the hand of Graham said , J
"Now, my boy, you have fairly won
her ad she is yours. Come here, pet,''
he said to Anna, who appeared at the
door pressing in by her mother, "and
name your wedding day.'
It is needless to tell how Anna, blush
ed, or how her little heart leaped for
joy in her bosom. It Ss of more mo
ment to say, that in one month the
twain were made one flesh."
After the knot had been tied, and the
young folks were full of noisy merri
tnent, Mr. WoodrnfT said to his new
made son "And now, can you tell,
John, why I made you beat me at
draughts before I would let you have
my little pet there, who looks happier,
and I hope is happier than. I ever have
seen her before?
"Indeed I do not, said the young
man seriously. "I always felt it to be
a piece of uncalled for cruelty to us

it. You distrust your own powers. It
was but one week before you asked me
for Anna's hand, that in a conversation,
you could not do a certain thing. It
involved difficulty and application, but

it, or trust some one to do it for -you.

How to Reclaim a drunkard.
A wight there lived, whom much it
Because his wife got groggy,
Ungodly dame whose huge-grown frame
With gin was always soggy.
How had he tried from her to hide,
Or break the tempting bottle ;
But soon the sot, a now one got,
And wetted still her throttle.
With care-worn brow, he sat down now
To give her solemn warning.
But she returned with nose upturned
For all his counsel scorning.
At length, more bold, his dame he told
Such conduct was unchristian,
Her jaw began, and hushed the man,
As Sampson the Philistian.
Your fate, says he, will surely be
Spontaneous combustion ;
Oh! hush, she spoke, your raven-croak
Go, hubby, with your fustian!
In sore despair, he tore his hair,
Not knowing how to stay her;
".Is I'm a man, I'll try a plan,
To cure her, -or :o slay her!'
Pleased with the thought, forthwith he
A hogshead of the "crittur,"
"Now go it wife, since short is life!"1
The idea makes him twitter,
Soon-the sad dame, gin scenting came,
Then, first the thought did strike her,
4kI see you plan, you muderous man,
Go! kill me with your liquor'.1'
What magic power! for from that hour,
She never more was mellow.
And strange to tell the hogshead's still
Unopened in the cellar!

Love is a Parthian
When love is advancing
To capture the heart
With soft wiles entrancing,
He shows not a dart;
His bow slung liehind him,
Unstrung, seems to show
The heart will not find him
The sweet one a foe.
In his eye hope is swimming,
Miss laughs on his lip,
The bowl that he's brimming.
'Tis transport to sip;
And while he remains there,
Mid sunshine or shower,
The urchin maintains there
The bloom of his bower.
But guard 'gainst his flying,
When whetting his dart,
And playfully trying
His wings for a start;
For Love wounds, no never,
The heart where he lies,
A Parthian ever,
He shoots when he flies.

The library edition of the
On the first day of January 1342, commence
the publication of a Quarto Library Edition Jo
he Brotfier Jonathan, newspaper. The immense
quantity of interesting Current Literature which
from week to week lias been presented in the pa
ges of the folio paper, has brought as from all di
rections expressions of regret that the matter is
not printed in a shape convenient for preservation.
To meet this reasonable objection we have
nunerio puousnea on i uesaay a periodical in
quarto form, under the. tiileof JonallianPi Jlfiss
cellany: and the suecesa of that periodical ha-
indjced us still farther to improve upon the orig
i nal plan by the publication of the Library Edi
tion of Brother Jonathan, in a Ujarto of thirty
two pages.
The Qaarto is printed on a sheet larger than
the present folio form of the Jonathan. An en
graved Title Page, designed by one of the first
artists in the country, will give each number an
deao completeness and taste. Engraving's of
rare merit, such as have hitherto appeared in the
folio form of tha Urothor Jonathan, are introduced
into each number, and the work" forms THREE
For each volume the price" is one dollar in ad
vance, and three for any one year, handsomely
'ustrated by the publisher, and bound according
the tasta of, the subscriber!", will form an orna--Tient
for any library, combining the requisites of
teatness, compactness and variety, not offered in
any publication now extant. The shape of tho
volames, while it is quite as convenient for rea
ders as that of any quarto now printed, has ad
vantages in convenience for binding, unapproach
ed by any newspaper publication in the world.
While thos we put the matter in a form for
preservation, we shall earnestly strive to render
the contents worthy of that preservation, and to
do away the reproach tht to print an article in
a newspaper, is to make an inscription on a water
melon. . The whole energies of this establishment,
publishing, editorial, artistical, and mechanical, -are
centered on the Brother Jonathan and the Dol-
ar Magazine ; and we ar.e confident that this im
provement, like the original projection of the Jon
athan, will mark anew era in periodical literature t
Terms. The Qaarto Library Edition of the-
Brother Jonathan will be pnblisiisd every Satur
day ; each number to contain tiiirtt two larga i
pages. It is divided into three volames a year,
each volume to consist of 544 pages, and to con- ;
tain about forty elegant Wood Engravings, and
seventeen peices of popular and fashionable Mu- '
sic. Price one dollar a volume, fonr months, or
three dollars a year, in advance. Six volumes
for five"4olIar. (
