No explana tion could be given; and the upshot wm, that, in spite of v tears,- threafcsj entreaties, rage and expostulations the unfortunate newly married pair were taken in charge by the relent-j less policeman, and marched down stairs to the police office. j And here lot the curtain drop on the melancholly scene, while wd follow the fortunes -of; ijpjack jajipflj No. 2. When the train stopped at Cam-I dem, four gentlemen got off, ami walked arm in arm rapidly and si lent up one of the by streets, and struck off into a footpath leading to, a secluded grove outside of the ftwn.y OfitTi first' two, one was our military friend in a blue coat, an- parenly the leader of the party.' Of the second two, one was a smil ; ing, rosv little man, carrying a valise. The respective companions walked with hasty, irregular strides, were abstracted, and appar ently ill at ease. The party stopped. "This is tHelfref,'-t saifK Captain Jones. "Yes," said Doctor Smith The Captain and Doctor conferred together. The other two studiously kept apart. "Very well. I'll measure the ground." It was done, "Now for the pistols," whispered the Captain to his fellow-second. "They are all ready in the va lse," replied the Doctor. ! The principals were placed, ten paces apart, wearing that decidedly uncomfortable look a man has who is in momentary expectation of be ing 8b.Ot. 4 .i; "You will fire, gentlemen, simul taneously when I give the word," said the Captain. Then, in and un dertone to the Captain, "Quick the pistols." -The' iDocto . stooping ove .&nd fumbling at the valise, appeared to find something that surprised him. 1 "YVhy, what the devil" "Why, what's the matter?" asked the Captain, starting up. "Can't you find the caps?" "JLmee q jwstol-ou.cap, ( pt this: He held up a lady's night cap! "Look here and here and ! here and here!" holding up sue-, cessively a hair brush, a long white night-gown, a cologne bottle and comb. r They were. greeted' with, a long whistle bv the Captain, and a blank. stare by the two principals. "Coufound the luck?" ejaculated the Captain, "if we haven't made a: mistake and brought the wrong va-; hse." The principals looked at the sec- onds. Nobody volunteered a sug gestion. At last the Doctor in quired. "Well, what's to be done?" "D d unlucky l"jaculated the Captain. "The duel can't go on." "Jividently not, responded the Doctor, "unless they brain each oth er with the hair brush, or lake a pop at each other with the cologne! bottle," K"Yon-are quit iure thera- ait f o pilsjini the Valtsef ' MidbieJ tne pnucipais wiuj suppresseu eager ness, and drawing a breath of evi dent relief. "We might go over to the city; and get pistols," proposed the Cap-' tain. . "And by that time it will be dark " said the Doctor. r .. "D unlucky,'' said the.Ciptain again. ''We shalj be the laughing stock: of the' towrV if this gets ViTid,'' con solingly remarked the Doctor. "One word .with you, Doctor," here interposed his principal. They conferred. At the end of the conference with his principal, the Doctor advan cing to the Captain confened with his principal. Then the seconds' LcoBferred.'wJth each other. Finnally, it was iormany agrea witn tne two contending parties that a statement should be drawn up in writings whereby principal No. 1 tendered the assurance that the offensive words, "Your are a liar," were not used by bim.jn anT' personal sense, but solely as an abstract proposition in a general way in regard to the matter of fact under dispute. To which principal No. 2 appended his statement of his high gratification at this candid and honorable explana tion, and unqualifiedly withdrew the x offensive words. 4 ."You are . a caunarel,!', thiy .having been ftisfed by him under a misapprehension of the intent and purpose of the re-; mark which preceded. There being no longer a cause for a quarrel, the duel was of course ended. The principals shook hands with each other, and next with the sec onds, and were evidently very clad to,Ket'tnftoftt, ti'' A "And now that it is str happily tettled," Bftid the Doctor ohneklirjg and rubM-tig"' bis" haiidsf "if Woa U have-been a lucky niintako .after all,, that we have brought the wrong; i alrse, (Won what the ludy.iaUtj pwnsit wilf 'sayf when she opens ptirs and finds the pistols.

In very good spirits the party crossed the river, and inquired a' the baggage room in. reference to each and all black leather traveling bags arrived that day, took notes of where they were sent, and set off to follow them uj). In due time Un reached the Continental, and as luck would have it, met the unhap py bridal pair just coining down stairs in charge of he policeman. ; What's 'all this?'' inquired 'the Captain. ... "Oh, a couple of burglars, caught with a valise full of stolen prop erty." "A valise. What kind of a va lise?" - "A black leather valise. That's it there." . "Here! -StopJ-r-Hallo! Police man!

Here's their valise with a night-cap in it." (.treat was the laughter, multifa rious the comments, and deep the interest of the crowd in all this ' di alogue, which they appeared to regard as a delightful entertain ment, got up expressly for their amusement. ' , "Then you say this 'ere is yourn!" said the policeman, relaxing his hold on the bridegroom and confronting the Captain. ' ' : '' "Yes, itymine." " ;' ; 'Atid liowdvoX come by the y ....

' "If so be as how you've got this, lady's valise, she's all right and can go. ! But in- that- case this is your'n, and it comes to yon to count for them are stolen spoons. .

For the TELEGRAPH. For the TELEGRAPH. Mary's Lover. . vThe la'st rays of he setting sun shining into the sick room,' tinged with a sudden brightness the conch of the invalid, gleaming through her golden hair and lighting np the beauty of her face a beauty so frail, that it was even how passing like thfe monting -cloud.- Her-slerrder hands were wasted by disease, and the lus tre of her eye and the bloom of her cheek were but the mark of the fev er, which , was Consuming, her' life. l' ""Do ybu think he will obtain leave of nbsence ?" she said to her mother, wfco sat by her side, . .- : i JIIe saidJae should-surely .ora," replied Mrs-, Hurjter, aiiJ 1 she shuddered-as she thought of the wording of his telegram. "I shall come with or without leave," he had said, and she knew Frederick Scott too well to think that this was idle bravado. He was a man of desperate courage,; q iron will, and he loved Mary Hun ter with such passionate devotion that he would do or dare anything for her sake., . Surely they; would permit him to take a last look of one so dar, but if not a dark scene of desertion, pursuit, death, rose np before the mind of Mrs.. Hunter and filled her with such fear and dread, (hat she could not conceal, her agita tion from her daughter. Mary mis took the cause of Uar excitement. .1 "Calm yourself, mother dear," 'she said, ."J am not afraid . to die, you know I should have gone from you In a'few months,' if my life had been spared, and then you wonld have been filled with anxiety on my ac count, you have been so doubtful whether it was best for me to trurft my happiness with poor. Fred, . but now when we are separated, you jrill have no niqre fears for ne.( , fyy Sav ior will never disappoint my hopes in the 'ChriKtian's Home of Glory,1 I shall be so safe; so safe." : With this blessed vission filling her soul, Mary sank exhausted into a disturbed sleeft. Hundreds of miles away Frederick Scott stood in the. presence of his commanding officer, and gave his rtieon 1 bf. biking leaa-eoi" ab sence. Captain L eyed him with coolconicniptT.' What was the death of a frail woman; to the ,niftn,w-ho had seen scores of brave men fall m a siugle battle t Bleeding hearts and final partings were trifles to be whol ly disregarded when they interfered with military duty. At length jie have left all these tender feelings be hind, when you enlisted in the army; it isn't the place for the cultivation of sentiment. : We can't suspend the operations of war, .'to give' the men an opportunity to visit their sweet hearts. You are needed at your post. Our force is , already too small for guarding so large a number of pris oners and yon cannot be spared. Frederick Scott uttered no word of remonstrance or entreaty, but si lently he left the room. His com rades knew by the flash of his eye, what .was the result of the interview, and they knew too, of his resolve. The precious moments were passing. The steamboat which was the -only means of travel . within reach, lay on the opposite side of the river,low erdown than the foit,and the time of her departure was at hand. He must reach it bv swimming and he had no time to lose; he rushed to the bank of the river and threw himself in. His comrads heard the splash of water, but every - eye was ayerted. No one sate him go, and it was not until he reached the middle of the stream that the Captain became aware of his flight.. Such daring disobedience filled him. with rage and he commanded an instant pur suit. But "stop" he said "fire upon him from' here;" and in obedience to this command a volley of shot fell harmlessly arouiid Frederick. "The boys will ainvwide- qf the -mrk,'-riW thought, whe ball came whizzing so near his' head that his sense of se curity was ' fiistaiitly dispelled. It was the Captain's shot, he knew and perhaps he would take still bet ter' aim the1 next time. To avoid this danger, hestruck out for the. shore and landed out of reach of the guns. But here a jiew difficulty was to be overcome. ' -The path to the landing was so. choked A part ' of the way by underbmIij' jhat, with his ut most effort .he made -but slow pro gress. - Wh'ea ": he . reached ; a spot where the otistructions were less, in his eager hste he bruised his fore head against the low branch 'of a tree which n'uhg over the path; wip ing away the blood -which came streaming over his .faccy he pressed on and came in 'sight of the landing, only to see the, boat steaming away in the distance. 'lie waved hishand ' kerchief, he ; shouted until he ; was hoarse, in vain his cries were either unheard or disregarded. ' Exhausted, heart-sick, he felt like lying down here to die. After having encountered--so many dangers he feared that he; was ' foiled at last, when he . suddenly , recollected that there was another landing a mile be low, where theiboat might stop. He roused himself .and passed "on, and with-his elothes1 tattered and limbs Iaceratedand bleeding with his strug gles through the" matted path, he reached the boat' and sunk fainting and insensible upon the deck, but kind hands'.' ministered- to him, and rest and sleeps restored, him. How slowly the weary hours of his. jour ney dragged themselves along; how often the boat stopped, he could hardly endure, the : nervous restless ness which was induced by the fre quent delays. At iength at the close of the third day, the nd was reach ed, and he stood by Mary's bed-side, her hand clasped, in his, "and the joy of his return giying.iher. temporary 8trength,.whieh reassured him and filled him' with- the hope that she would yet recover to bless his life. In one snort nour tnat nope vamsnea, for Mary )egan' lsink rapidly; soon she.was insensible, to ; his presence, and before the. setting un she had left him forever.' : --. It was not; until she was no longer sensible to any' of the commotions of this world (fantma how thankful ne felt,) that the house; was surrounded hy a party of.: pursuing soldiers, to arrest Frederick as a deserter. ; He went out and spoke to the men as suring them' that he would stay to Mary's buiriaf, and then he would go .with them to , death or disgrace, no matter whichj'l now. that she was gone. The men made rio objection, but waited in silence, and when the last sad rites ' were oyer," Frederick returned with them to his post. . : , . Shortly before his arrival, Captain L had been made aware that it would be at . hi peril to punish him. Certain annonymous letters hinted to him,1 the ease ' Svith which an obnoxious officer' could he. dispos ed of, in the heat of battle, by an accidental shot from his own men. Whether this man whe scorned all tender emotions, could have given way to the womanish weakness, of being afraid of ' these threats, was not known, but certain it is, that this case of disobedience and desertion was never reported at' headquarters, and Frederick' after a ' reprimand re sumed his duties as usual. . ''He did hot die of grief for Mary's loss, as might .hayp bepn expected, after giving : such a , proof of the strength of his love as I have record ed. It was strange he did not give up existence, under such a sense of misery as overwhelmed him. .1 am sure if this were a fictitious narra tive, I should have, disposed of him in this manner, but, as I am only telling you the truth, I am obliged to abstain fpiu tprniliiating his car reer in thi$ poetical and romantic manner, and to say that he still lives, and you might see him for hours without suspecting that such a dark shadow had .crossed his path; nev ertheless it has left its impress upon his character. He leads an aimless life, is restless and discontented and often changes his' residence. With exceptional skill in several of the mechanic irts by whydi he might gain wealth, and an honorable uaiuo, he contents Ifimsclf with a bare sub sistence and utter insignificance. When hit friends would incite him to greater exertion, he replies, "what should I gain, I am here to-day, and iajprpw ? 41"- Ti W$ of the shortness and uncertainty of life, which has never left him since Mary's death, instead of inciting him, as it ought, to do with his might what his hand tindctli to do. has par alyzed every laudable effort and de stroyed all honorable ambition.

Walker's California Tin Ogar littPl-S are a purely Vegetable pfepamtion, made chiefly from the na tive herbs found on the lower ranges of the Sien a Nevada mountains of Califor nia, the medicinal properties of which arc extracted therefrom without the use of Alcohol. The question is almost daily asUed, " What is the cause of the minaraileleil success of Vinegar Bit ters Our answer is, that they remove the cause of disease, find the patient re covers his health. They are the great blood ptirifieraiul a life-giving principle, a perfect- Renovator and Invigoratur of the-' system. Never before in the history of the world has a medicine been fomnottndeti possessing the remarkable qualities of VlxKOAR Bittkrs in healing the sick of every disease man is heir to. They are a gentle Purgative as well as a Tonic, relieving Congestion or Inflammation of the Liver and Visceral Organs, in Bilioua Diseases. The properties of Dr. Walker's VixKriAR HiTTKits are Aperient, Diaphoretic, Carminative, Xntritions, Laxative. Diuretic, Sedative, Connter-Irritant, Sudorific, Altera tive, and Anti-Biiions. Grateful Thousands proclaim Vin egar Bitters the most wonderful In rigorant that over sustained the sinking system. No Person can take these Bitters according to directions, and remain long unwell, provided their bones are not de stroyed by mineral poison or other means, and vital organs wasted beyond repair. Bilious, Remittent and Inter- mittent Fevers, which are so preva lent in the valleys of our great rivers throughout the United States, especially those of the Mississippi, Ohio, Missouri, Illinois, Tennessee, Cumberland, Arkan sas, Red, Colorado, Brazos, Kio Grande, Pearl, Alabama, Mobile, Savannah, Ro anoke, James, -and many others, with their vast tributaries, throughout our entire country during the Summer and Autumn, and remarkably so during sea sons of unusual heat and dryness, are invariably accompanied by extensive de rangements of the stomach and liver, and other abdominal viscera. In their treatment, a purgative, exerting a pow erful influence upon these various or gans, is essentially necessary. There is no cathartic for the purTse equal to Dr. J. Walker's Vinegar Bitters, as they will speedily remove the dark colored viscid matter with which the bowels are loaded, at the same time stimulating the secretions of the liver, and generally restoring the healthy functions of the digestive organs. Fortify the body against disease by purifying all its fluids with Vinegas Bitters. No epidemic can take hold of a system thus fore-armed. Dyspepsia or Indigestion, Head ache, Pain in the Shoulders, Coughs, Tightness of the Chest, Dizziness, Sour Eructations of the Stomach, Bad Taste in the Mouth, Bilious Attacks, Palpita tation of the Heart, Inflammation of the Lungs, Pain in the region of the Kid neys, and a hundred other painful symp toms, are the offsprings of Dyspepsia. One bottle will prove a better guarantee of its merits than a lengthy advertise ment. ' Scrofula, or King's EtII, VThite Swellings, Cleers, Erysipelas, Swelled Neck, Goitre, Scrofnlons Inflammations, Indolent Inflammations, Mercurial Affections, Old Sores, Eruptions of the Skin, Sore Eyes, etc. In these, as in all other constitutional Dis eases, Walker's Viskgab Bitters have shown their great curative powers in the most obstinate and intractable cases. For Inflammatory and Chronic Rheumatism, Gout, Bilious, Remit tent and Intermittent Fevers, Diseases of the Blood, Liver, Kidneys and Bladder, these Bitters have no equal. Snch Diseases are cansed by Vitiated Blood. Mechanical Diseases. Persons en gaged in Paints and Minerals, such as Plumbers, Type-setters, Gold-beaters, and Miners, as they advance in life, are subject to paralysis of the Bowels. To guard against this, take a dose of Walksb's Vin egar Bitters occasionally. For Sk" in Diseases, Eruptions, Tet ter, Salt-Klienm, Blotches, Spots, Pimples, Pustules, Boils, Carbuncles, Ring-worms, Scald-head, Sore Eyes, Erysipelas, Itch, Scurfs, Discolorations of the Skin, Humors and Diseases of the Skin of whatever name or nature, are literally dug np and carried out of the system in a short time by the use of these Bitters. Pin, Tape, and other Worms, lurking in the system of so many thousands, are effectually destroyed and removed. JS'o system of medicine, no vermifuges, no an thelminitics will free the system from worms like these Bitters. For Female Cemplaints, in young or old, married or single, at the dawn of wo manhood, or the turn of life, these Tonio Bitters display so decided an influence that improvement is soon perceptible. Cleanse the Yitiated Blood when ever you find its impurities bursting through the skin in Pimples, Eruptions, or Sores; cleanse it when yon find It obstructed and sluggish in the veins; cleanse it when it is foul ; your feelings wiU tell you when. Keep the blood pure, and the health of the system will follow. R. H . HeDONAXD CO., Druggists and Gen. Agta San Franciaeo, California, and cor. of Washington and Chariton Sta. N. T.
