A THBiLLtaa Nabbative. -The following narrative a true one describe a scene that actually took place not many years since, in a country ton in the Stat of Main: ' .' . v One evening In the month of December, 1834, a number of townsmen had assembled in tb store of Mr. Tho. Putnam, to talk over "matter and tbina;" smoke drink and in abort to do anything to kill time." ' Three hour bad thus passed awav. They laughed, and talked, and drank, and chatted and had a good time, generally, o that about the asual hours of shutting up shop, each of the party felt particularly am rie. - '. . , . , ... . "Come, said Cbarle Hatch one of the company "let' all liquor, and then have a game of high, low, Jack!" "Sol ay," exclaimed another, "who ha eot the cards I", . , . "Fetch on your keerds," drawled -out a third, bis eyes half closed tlirouirh the ef fects of the liquor he had drank. After drinking all round, a nine table was drawn up before the fireplace, where burn ed brightly a large fire of hemlock 'logs, which would snap and crackle throwing largo fire coals out upon the hearth. All drew round the table, seating them- selves upon whatever come handiest. ' Four of them had rolled up to the table some kegs which from their weight, were supposed to contain nails. ' "Now," said Hatch, how shall we play every one for himaelf!" ' - "No have partners," growled one man. "I say every one for himself." exclaimed another. ' ' ' ' " ;-' "No hansed if I do. shouted the former, bringing his fist down on the table, knock ing one candle out of the stick, and anoth er oporf the floor. - ' - " "Come, come," said Hatch, no quarrel ing; all who say for having partners, stand up." Three arose. 1 ' "Now all who say each man for himeelf stand uo." The remaining four immediately got up. "You see, Barclay,", said Hutch, "the majority are against you. Come, will you pnyi" "Well, as I don't want to be on the op posite aide, I'll play," answered Barclay, somewhat cooled duwn. . , . . Mr. Putnam was not in the store that evening, and the clerks who were busy be hind the counter had taken very little notice of the proceedings. About half past ten. Mr. Putnam thought he would step over to the store and see that everything was safe. As he went in he walked up towards the fire. - Before him sat seven men half crazy with drink, and the excitement of playing cards. There they were- within a few feet of the firo just described, and four ol them sealed on kegs of fowder! " ; Burcluy, who was a heavy man, had press ed in the head of the keg on which he sat, bursting the top hoop and pressing the powder through the chinks. By the contin ued motion of their feet, the powder had be come spread about the floor, and now cov ered a space of two feet all around them, 1 Air. f utnam first movement was toward the door, but recovering himself he walked up towards the fire. - Should any of thorn attempt to rise, " he thought, and scatter a few grains a little further into the fireplace, where lay a quantity of live coals! . At this moment Hatch looked up, and tee ing Mr. Putnam's face deadly pale gazing into the fire, exclaimed: . "Why Putnam, what ails you!" and at the same time making a motion to rise. "For heaven's sake gentlemen, do not rise," said Putnam, " four of you sit on kegs of powder, it ia scattered all around you one movement might send you all to eter nity. There aro two buckets of water be hind the bar. . But keep your scats for a moment, and you are saved move and you are dead men!" ' In an instant every man was perfectly so bered,' note limb moved each seemed par alized. ' In less time than it has taken to describe this thrilling scene, Mr. Putnam had pour ed the water and perfectly saturated the powder on the floor, and extinguished the fireso that an explosion was impossible. Then and not till then was there a word spoken! ' - ' ' ' ' OCrWe received, through the post office, some time ago ' from the hands of an on known friend, the .following: . . . Like the'Ahgels.

In plain language, 'seek sterling useful knowl edge only, which shall direct you in your duty to your Creator, your duty to yourself, and your duty to your nicghbor around you, and, as a matter of course, everything else which you can desiro to make you happy shall bo added unto you..' This is plain reasoning, and sure." . . "I have often heard this," said the young man, "but I must say I never heard it ex plained before." "No," said mine host, "il has not become quite fashionable yet to speak plain common sense; and ff gentlemen of the same cloth asour worthy pastor here' would be a little more explicit in their teachings, much go 'd might be done; ignorance would gradually decrease and knowledge take its place.

Among the items of our late French news, there is one winch will be hichly interesting to all our readers, but doubly interesting to Barnum in view of a grand speculation thrown away.

Thte horrible machine, frame-work, eliding knife, and basket, cer tified by a Government officer, were sold at public auction, before an immense crowd of spectators, for fifty francs; and directly af ter, the articles were committed, to a bon fire, amid the cheer of the people. The guillotine of Rohspierre, preserved among the relics of the first French revolution for more than half a century, and then sold at fifty francs! What a speculation wa thu thrown away.- ure enoueh!

Gentlemen: Yuur esteemed favor of yes terday is before me, an J I hasten tu reply. I am ardently desirous tu witness a trial of the Maine Law experiment in Ohio, and am persuaded that the people will hare it tried. and I would rej-ire to bear a part in the war, and share the glory of the victory; but I am sensible that in this district the stand ard bearer must be a man who can so into the field with great mental and physical a biiity , and be able tu devote all his time and energy to the work. I or some time my health ha been very infirm, and my busi ness requires all my attention. Under these circumstances I am admouuhed not to un dertake so great a work as that which your partiality would assign me. Be pleased to accept for yourselves and those whom you represent assurance of my highest regard and esteem. Very truly, die, M. Z. KREIDER. This declination leaves Mr. Setby tbe Senatorial candidate, and the distinction has fallen upon a worthy man. Mr. Sclby was first nominated by a Temperance Mass Con vention in Albany last week, and he would have received the unanimous vote of the convention in this place last Friday, aa the first choice of that body, had it not been suppo.-ed that Dr. Kreider would have ac cepted the nomination.
