The San Francisco Call tells an extra ordinary story respecting a Inonster tel escope made by P'rofesisors Lefever and Longtour, lCrenc'h scieutists, and erected at San Fralcisco. 'Thle lenses are twell ty filet in dianieter, and this is what happened when the astronomers and their friends turned the instrument to the heavens : "M. )nufrere wasa the first to apply his eye to the eye-piece of the telescope. For fully live minutes he looked on in lpeecChless amazement, then without a word, turned away to hide his emotion. (ine by one the gentle men present tested the telescope, exhi biting their astonishment in various ways. The planet which happened to cast its heanls upon the great speculum was Mars, and the revelation is too won derftll for credit. The eye-piece of the lowest magnifying power was first plac er Ion, when the planlet presented a most astoinding sight. The powerful lens brought the surface of the planet nearer than that of the moon has ever been lrought by the most powerful telescope The green of the sea was brought out in unmistakable color, anid one could al most imagine that lie could see the wiaves polli the surface. There before the eye was spread out a splendid pano runas of hill and dale, dark patches that lmuist be covered by forests, great yellow ish patches that looked like autumn tields. silvery threads that must be riv ers, and several unmistakable volcanoes in action. While thei circus with "the imost beau tiful womUalnu in America" was parading through Chicago the other day, the ab surd cry was raised by a practical joker: "Tihe U10,0tIu leauty has got loose !" The crowd ran away in every direction. Some women fainted, and one was thrown through a window, nearly kill ing a telegraphl operator. 'lThe C('hicago people are uot iaccinstomue to "l,()) heallties." Sign of ap'lproachiing p ;Optsal : "'Io ther," remarked a I)uluth grl, "'I think IIarry n mlst 1e going to piro use to mle." "Why so, my daughter ''quried the old lady. laying down her spectacles, while her face beamed like the moon in its fourteenth night. -Well, he as;ked me this evening if I wasn't tired of liviug with such a menagerie as you and dad. Mrs. Evans,'the Omaha lady who has just astonished the world and her ,hus band by giving birth to two boys and two girls, should remember that four of a kind beats two pair, and show her hu mility accordingly.

I crave not fame, nor wealth, nor power : I only wish that I could be Im A pound or two of some prilae flour, And she were gently kneading me. pl A HAPPY DENOUMENTI hi "My dear uncle, I hope you are not in earnest in this ?" tl "lint I an in earnest, sir-I am in s earliest." Mr. Oliver Hawkes, the rich banker, faiced about, and with his hands beneath i his coat-tails, glared through his spec- I tacles at his nephew. "Yes, sir: I was never more in earnest U in my lite, as you will see. I promised her father on his death-bed to look after the welfharo of his daughter, and to do i what I could to bring about a marriage between her and you." "Why should you and bMr. Thomnpson have singled me out in this affliir !" in- a quired Mr. Charles Albert Fitzroy, with anything but a flattered or gratitled ex- it pression. t "For various reasons, sir-for various reasons. Bdcause John Thomson and I if have been close friends and partners through life, and you and .Joanna "J oantu !" "You and Joanna," pursued Mr. n Hawkes, without noticing his nephew's e horritied expressiou, "were the nearest of us, and of An age and disposition suit- y ed to each other. Because my poor friend dreaded, of all thingshis daughter mak- s ing an unsuitable or unhappy match, and he knew you had been properly btought up, in correct principles, andul without ny bad habits and associates -thanks to me. And because, as your r wife she would be at least always safe a and under my eye and my care. "Wouldn't it be as well, sir, if-if you s you would marry the young lady your self?" interrupted Fitzroy, with sudden I interest. "No Impertinence, sir! You know as I well as I do that I aun no marrying man I and that, even if I were, I should not I think of taking for Imy wife a girl of I eighteen." ''She'll grow older." "So shall I." Charles Albert turned to a window and looked out gloomily, while his un cle paced the floor. Presently he said, abruptly : "Does Miss Thompson know ofthis matter f" "She knows that it was her father's wish that she should marry you. He did not desire to bind her by a promise. If on acquaintance she likes you, well and good; and I see no reason why she should not, provided you conduct your Sself properly." "My inclination is not to be consid ered, it seems." "Pooh! You will like her well enough when once you kuow her. She's an un commonly tice girl." Pretty ?" inquired the young man, in differently. '"Hum! Well I am no great judge of Sbeauty; but in my opinion she's good Slooking enough to satisfy any rational Staste. I dtlon't say she's a Venus, or a Helen of Troy, or a Cleolpatra-heaven forbid ! But she's a nice, lady-like, pleasant-mannered girl who will make a good wife andt a good housekeeper. Such a pudding as I saw on her father's ntable, made by her own hands." "Fitzroy suppressed a groan. "What style is she?" he inquired, faintly. "No particular style, that I know of. . Good tigure, blue or gray eyes, or per ghaps hrowin-dlon't recollect which. . Nose--humln !--a trifle turned up, I think; r: hair reddish-" "Red hair!" "Yes; red hair-and what of it? A great many persons like red hair. "I don't." said the neplhew, decisive ly. "Well, thet, get her to dye it. Tell ' her to dlye it yellow, br.wn, purple, green--any color you choose," sail the . old banker impatiently. "But one k thing I know-which is, that if you de- i cliue to marry Joanna, withoutI any reason, I-I'll leave every cent t of my nmoney to the girl herself." e "But, my dear uncle, listen to me. SIf I decline to marry Mliss Thompson, it will not be without a good and sufti a cient reason." - "What reason can you possibly have, o in the name of common sense 1" "Only this," answered Charles Albert, tragically, twisting down the corners of his dark moustaohe-"only this. -I re could never love her, and consequently ov could not make her happy. In a word, tiE my heart is not mine to bestow. It is pr already in the keeping of another." an "In the keeping of the old scratchV' exclaimed Uncle Hawkes, angrily. er Fitzroy drew up his elegant form with of dignity. in 'You forget, sir. You are my uncle, but I cannot hear that term applied to H; the lady I love." do "Fiddlesticks ! And pray, sir, who may this wonderful female lie ?" n "She is a wonderful woman, sir; the ds paragon of her sex for grace, beauty hi and sweetness." a "Oh, no doubt, no doubt! And where to had you the good fortune to meet this di paragon I" Mr. Hawkes was very red in the face, ni though trying hard to appear coolly hi sarcastic. ti Charles Albert looked dreamily into ' the sky, and answered toftly : cc "I first met her at Venice, on a moon- le light night, in a gondola." s "Gondolas be---snashed !" sneered Uncle Hlawkes. "Sir!" said Fitzroy, haughtily. fr "Oh, go on, go on! .Let's hear all tl about it. It will do no good. He, he! cl What did she say in the gondola I ai "She repeated some lines of Byron ne about Venice and the Adriatic. I hap- of pened to be seated next to her and heard it. And she leaned over the gondola y and let the sparkling waters ripple ai througt her white, Jeweled fingers, look ing like pearls in the moonlit spray ?" h "He, he. What next ?" Charles Albert indignantly arose. P "Sir, I can not have the deepest and C' most sacred emotions of my heart mock- tl ed at!" c "Oh, :it down, sit down! You haven't yet told us the name of the lady." " "Her name," he said softly and pen sively, "her name was, Zeleuca." "What?" " "Zeleuca. So she signed herself in a note to me."' r Mr. Oliver Hawkes' rugged counte- i nance assumed anexpression of unspeak- 9 able disgust. I "You don't mean to say that she was some heathen Greek or Italian ?" "No, sir; she was an American, or l English." "Unfortunately, I could never ascer tain her family. She was traveliflg with a small party-a family party, ap parently-and their name was Cresswell f But she had not the air of being related to them." "And you never met her again. It was on the summit of Vesuvius-" "Ah, a little nearer heaven-or, it may be, the opposite place." "On the very verge of the awful cra ter, where she stood, calm and fearless gazing down, without a shudder, into the fiery abyss below." "Nice warm place for a declaration of love. Hope you made it." "No, sir; there I unfortunately lost e her. One moment I saw her standing thus, and knew by her shy glance and blush that she recognized me, and was not indifferent to the meeting. But when, a moment after, I again turned Stoward her, she was gone. I caught one hasty glimpse of her rapidly-descending form-" "Gracious heavens ? you don't mean to say that she fell into the crater ," cried f Uncle Hawkes, in unaffected horror. S"Of course not," replied his nephew ilindignantly. "I mean that she and her a party were descending the mountain by n the new inclined railroad." , "Oh! And you followed, I suppose f" a "I did track them for several ldays; but as often as I came up with them they would disappear. Those two fat, red-faced guardians of hers-Mr. and Mrs. Cresewell-evidently suspected me. SOnce in Florence, Isucceeded in sending her a line, asking if she would be on the balcony in the evening, and she repliedl r- that she would, signing herselfZeleuca. SBut she did not appear, and after weit Sing until twelve at night, I dliscovered that her guardians had dragged her off A before sunset. They had started for Paris, whither I followed, and after . wards toLondon, but could never gain another trace of them. For two months 1 I never.tired in the search." , "Ah! so tt was that which kept you so e long abroad. A pretty wild-goose chase, e indeed." e- "And now that I am at home again, It you add an additional burden to my life it I by requiring me to'forget Zeleuca, and Smarry Joanna !" C. "Well, do as you please-do as you n, please! But you know what the conse I- quences will be if you decline to marry my friend's daughter, and then force me e, to break the promise I made to hi~ on his death-bed." t, Mr. Oliver Hawkes snatched up his o hat and gloves, and, with an extremlY red face, rushed out at tie hlones, ·rat nt over a small newsboy, palled lila. lit. In tie rascal and gave him a %fim , and so ; proceeded down the street, grumbling, go and growling to himself. w "As ridioulous and idiotio, an affair sa ever I heald of. But he'll get over i- of course he'll get over it, They all do, 0 in time." For some weeks, however, Mr: Oliver Hawkes' hopes in this rspoet seemed' destined to disappoinotment. Charles Albert Fitzroy was absent and do melancholy, and calmly but resolutely declined to call on Miss Thomson, w), having just completed her eduqation #at a first-class establishment, had returned' to her aunt's residence, only one block he 'distant from that ot Mr, Hawkes. Charles Albert took especial pains never to go in this direction, and he hunted out, in all thelists and directories ai that he could obtain, the name of Cress. well, and made inquiries in hope of dis covering the stern guardians of his Ze loeuca, and thus eventually Zeleuca her- ti self. And seeing these things, Uncle Hawkes tb began to despond, espeecilly on learning BI from Mrs. Martin, Miss Thompson's aunt, t that that young lady was greatly disin.- f clined to the match with Mr. Fitzroy, P+ and frequently declared that she would f never marry at all, but live and die an re old maid. Eg By some means this deaieign of the C young lady came to the ears of Fitzroy, and inspired him with a new hope. ti He wouldisit Miss Thompson, and by a+ his indifference and stupidity inspire her B with such adislike of him that no human 1' power could induce her to consent to ac- V cept his hand. Thus wquld he escape q the hateful match, while the blame of it I' could not be laid to his account. Mr. Oliver Hawkes was delighted a when his nephew, with apensive and re signed air, signified his willingness to h submit to an introductiun to his friend's i daughter. "That is right, my dear boy-that is fi right I" he said, affectionately tapping t him on the shoulder, "I know your good v good sense would get the better of that romantic folly, and, if you like, we will y call on the ladies this very afternoon. I'll come home from the office on pur pose." . Accordingly the two gentlemen that r evening found themselves in Mrs. Mar- I tin's parlor, where that lady graciously received them, and presently, at Mr. Hawkes' request, went to summon her I niece. Charles Albert, with his back to the door, affected to be profoundly absorbed in a painting, while his uncle, on the y contrary, had never before exhibited so much nervousness. The slow opening of the door, and his uncle's somewhat agitated exclamation of "Joanna, my dear!" caused him to I turn around. If There stood a very pretty young lady -tall, graceful, with large, brown eyes t and a glory of auburn hair, with golden I g lights in its waves and ripples. With a d half-frightened look, her eyes were fixed I , upon Charles Albert as his uncle intro- 1 t duced him; and he-he returned the I I gaze with one which seoed to the older Sgentleman almost idloln its vacancy. "The ninny! he looks like astn pig I" I Mr. Hawkes thought. Then, I'l Vs. , per, under cover of a slight cough, d "Can't yon say something g" In obedience to which suggestion Mr. SFitzroy spoke in an absent, bewildered mallner: "Fh--very warm day-for the season." "Very," echoed the young lady, " faintly. "And-ahem! very late season f" m "Quite." lUncle Hlawkes couldn't stand it any d longer. lie bounced up and glked into Sthe next room, whither Mrs. Rkrtin had g already retired, on pretense of placing Sflowers in the vase on the table. She l was as nervous and anxious as Mr. . Hawkes himself, t "Take me into your flower garden, d ma'amn," he said, with the unceremoni t) ousness ofold acquaintance. "If I have or to stay five minutes longer in there, I r- I'll have to howl outright." n Hardly had the two disappeared when Is Charles Albert Fitzroy rose from his saUt, applroached Miss Thompson, and in ;o great agitation, extended both hands, 0, "Zeleuca." And Miss Joanna Thompson raised her n, large, brown, poetic eyes to him with a fe glance that thrilled him. d "I-I never dreamed that it was yen !" she murmured. nu Fifteen minutes thereafter, Uncle e- Hawkes. perambulating among th9 Ty flower-bedswithoqpk vntured a 'furtive no glance at thel p t)rioCbetritd4 i on What se behe1d tlr rgopnsiderably as tonished hiu BlHa' iaephew and Miss is Thompsoh wei qjn g nr the win Iv dotrecy b oth her hands, ~ orce. $ 1 ;. : 1.WellV' ejan1lab&" gentleman, "this it: Theai wndow was openi some ,word of hs nepbw= dola, on- the 4401t ' r 'reameddhtoi zaetiui And the u~tre apwl enac, and bIe. ntJo bands, and bis Ve 4e a light nights, angd p * : f An Ameedbte ofs itb k'is w 8 Bowie Raste m oled:h one W On dne occasion ,Bowie, whose.tpt :.6 tion had reached Memphis, arrive"d _by beat at the 4ty, or rather at wn h we- 'i - then known as the Thitd. .V' b ys Y Bluffse,.
