In one of those princely mansions so nu merous upon Regent street, in the metrop olis of England, upon the evening of July 7th, 1852, sat a young lady of uncommon personal beauty, evidently awaiting the ar rival ofsomeono who was unusually dila tory; for every now and then sho would anxiously look at the house-clock that was ticking in the corner, and then turning her gaze into tho street, would hurriedly ex claim, "Why don't ho come? , - At length the clock struck eleven. . 4IIc will be here soon,' said she, as the last vibrating sound died away, 'he certain ly will not stay longer.' But - tho poor woman was destined, to disappointment. The clock struck twelve, and still ho was awar. 'What can this mean?' said she, anxiously. 'Perhaps some mischief has befallen him.' And as she ceased speaking, she burried hor face in her snowy hands and sat for several momonts wrpt in deep thought. At length a strnuge suspicion seomod to cross her mind, ana her face lit up with a singular expression as sho arose from the richly caprisonod sofa upon which sho had been reclining, and opened a secret drawer of her secretary. ' I es, yes, he has gone to the gaming house. O, merciful Heaven! why wasl permitted to live until now, to know, to feel my husband's disgrace?' said she, as sho laid into tho drawer a roll of bank bills which she had just been counting, at tho same time sinking back upon tho sofa and bursting into a violent fit of weeping. Tho agonized woman wept long and bit terly under tho tumult of emotions that were raging in her breast. The clock struck one, and before its last echo had receded, tho parlor door opened, and Hen ry Lawson, tho dilatory husband, entered the room. His cyos beamed with a wild expression as they fell jipon his wife, who, palo and weeping, still sat upon the sofa awaiting his arrival. Hurriedly approaching her, in a husky voice, quite unusual to him, ho said, Ellen, why are you here?' I was waiting for you,' said she, as she turned her eyes imploringly to his. 'I could not sleep whon you wore away so un commonly late. Where have you been?' Henry, who never concealed anything from his wifo, frankly answered, 'At Marker s card saloon.' '01 Henry,' exclaimed tho agonized woman, 'can it Del wpy and you go there?' For gold!' answered ho, in an excited ed hand forcibly upon'fho tablo. vmrtA or Ilia BaniA timn hrinmnrr me pl.infMi. Think of the disgrace, Henry, said HA- Ion, slartlod at the strange manner of her husband. 'Disgrace! Why is it a disgrace to gain money from an individual who consents to stake it upon a gamo at cards, more than in the ordinary run of trade' is not tho world a camblins shop, and aro not all who are in it gamblers?' 'Henry,' said his wife, alarmed at the philosophy which ho had so recently adop ted, 'you look upon this matter in its wrong light. Gambling, in and of itself, may not bo a sin; but it is certainly a mon slrous evil, and involves tho most horrid results. Think of tho families that are impoverished,' tho thousands that aro al most daily ruined by its fascinating charms. Led along its gilded labyrinths has many a noble man step by step gone down to the dark abyss of destruction ;whereas,had they avoided tho fatal spell, and been content ti accumulate by honest industry, they might have lived happily, andf7fcontentodiy,mid mid wealth and ease, a blessing themselves audsocioty. O! Henry, who knows but that you' Here tho poor wifo paused. Sho could not find voico to utter the words that lay in her mind, but leaning hor head upon hor husband's bosom, sho wept long and loud. The guilty husband sat for somo momonts in silenco. At length he said, 'Come, Ellen, we will retire;' saying which, ho nrosc", and, followed by his wife, left tho parlof. Let us hero' pauso, and for a moment utko a glance at llehry Lawson' private history. Henry Lawson was tho only son of a man of wealth and influence, in London. At an early period of his lifo he exhibited ex traordinary talents, and was placed under the tuition of tho best teachers in England, by his idolatrous father. Having receiv ed all the honors of Oxford, ho Was placed at the Law, and at the period when we find him was in the midst of a lucrative practice. His father watched his progress With anxiety, and looked proudly forward to tho time when he should bo at the head of the bar. When ho commenced tho praclico of his profession ho was married to Ellen Hayden, a young lady of. amiable disposition and brilliant mind, and all who knew them de clared that it was the finest match in all England. Alas! how little did they dream how soon the even tenor of Henry's lifo was to be interrupted by the strange infat uation of gambling. - How often do we gaze with pride and admiration upon some rising genius that soon sots behind the dark clouds of disgrace.. CHAPTER SECOND, Fiv weeks have passtdaway since the events recorded in the proceeding chapter ocourred, and Henry Lawson is nervously pacing his drawing-room in a high state of excitement. . . . No, it js not yet too late, said he; 'all is not wasted. Ellen's diamond ring yet remains, and I must stake that. Yes, though she values it ass present from her dying mother; it mutt be staked. This vil lain has followed, robbed, ruined me, snd I mutt make one effort more to. retrieve my fortunes. Everything-library, house, hor ses, carriages atf but that ring, and it shall be staked, snd if lost, then there is one more resort:' said her as be drew forth s revolver lroni under the .folds of hla LANCASTER, OHIO, THURSDAY: MORNING, SEPTEMBER 7, 1854 cloak and cast upon its malicious glance. At this moment Ellen entered the room, pale and thin, yet beautiful. Henry,' said she, as she entered, 'you will certainly not go there to-night. Do stay with me.' a And she csstupon hor husband an implo ring glance, that brought a tear from his eye. 'No, no, Ellen, I cannot stay. I must go to-night; but I promise you that it shall be the last time.' 'Do not, 0! do not go to-night, but tell mo that you will never go again,' said Ellen, imploringly. ',." 'No, I say I must go to-night, said he, fiercely, 'but this shall be my last visit there ... 0! Henry, it would have been well with us now had you never gone there, but' 'Stop! Ellen, do not upbraid mo,' said hor husband, interrupting- her. 'Ishall tro: and that villain who has so efibctual'v fleeced me shall return at leasts part of mv fortune.' 'Who is this skillful rramesler?' inquired his wifo. 'I do not know, neither does any one in th city know from whence he came, nor how, nor when; but he is a skillful nlavor. and has fleeced me,' replied Henry in an excited voice; at the same time approach- iug his wife, and takinir hor hand in his. he said, 'Ellen, you know that all is gone; all savo this ring.' At these words ho quickly drew from her finger the sacred memento. Ellen fairly shrieked as she saw that treasured article, that memento given her by her mother when on her death-bed, thus taken from her. Sho had borne her hus band's ill fortune calmly. She had seen all go without a murmur. But when that precious gift was torn from her, it was too much. '0! Henry, do return mo tho ring. Do not stake that. Stop' But her husband had gone. Ho ner vously rushed along tho crowded walk uriH, lllA rinfv MllffiliwT flnrlill.r in ia l,nnrl and at length drew up in front of the earn ing shop. Entering, he found tho success ful stranger seated at tho tablo, awaiting his coming. 'Ila! my boy, I've been waiting for you some timo, and began to think that per haps you bad concluded to back out,' said he, as Henry entered. 1 am not the man to yield until fairly prostrated, 'said Henry, seating himself op posite the stranger. Well, how much do you stake on tins game?' said he, taking up and commencing to shuttle the cards. 'Ouo hundred pounds, and offer this in pledgo,' said Henry, laying tho ring upon tho table, which tho slr.inyertook up, and having examined minutely, said, 'Uonol' The stakes were put up, and the gamo commenced. Henry played well, and wou. In tho next and the ucxt games be met with equal succoss, and had won in all just one thousand pounds. Flushed with success, ho said, 'I stako eleven hundred pounds on the next game.' 'Done!' said tho stranger. They played, and Honry lost. Arising hurriedly from bis seat, ho drew a pistol from his pocket, ami quicker than thought pointed it at the stranger, at the same timo exclaiming, 'Miserable villain! you, by your vile arts, jugglery, havo robbed me of my fortune, everything, but tho clothes upon my back. iou havo ruined me; and now return one half of that which you have taken from mo, or you shall diol' hor a moment the succcshil gamsterdid not speak. At length ho said, 'Young man, you speak truly. I have robbed you of all your earthly possessions except your health, talents, and a lovely wifo. You aro not ruined. You can yet by industry rctrievo your broken fortune, and I shall not' 'Villain! die!' exclaimed Henry, inter rupting the stranger, at the same time pointing hispistol toward his head and firing. Tho stranger dodged in season to avoid the ball, and seizing Henry by the arm ex claimed. 'Honry Lawson, you know not what you do!' And throwing aside his mask, ho reveal ed to our hero's excited gaze the fcaturos of his mfe's father. 'Merciful heaven! Is this a dream?' wild ly exclaimed Henry. 'rio, ltis a reality,' answered Air. rlay- den. 'It is , your father-in-law, who has saved you from ruin. Return to your wife. Your fortuno shall be rostored, and hereaf ter be a visit man.' . , Honrv went homo that nicht a chanorod man, related to Ellen what had occurred, and pledged his honor that he bad played his last game. One year has. rolled away, and Henry Lawson is again in the full tide of a success ful practice. He has scrupulously kept his promise, and avoided gaming shops; and promising the reader mat bis tuture life will be prosperous and happy, we wilt drop his history. . PickCKd Pxaciies.

The Albany Journal gives as the following record, tho result thus far of the passage of the Ne braska bill and other unpopular and out rageous measures of the Pierce and Doug las Administration : A Whig Senator from Maine.

Hitherto we have carefully abstained from denouncing the suspected existence of a secret political or ganization denominated Know-Nothings. But all our contemporaries have had more or less to say about them, and hence' we think it time for us also to "come down on them!" It is worthy of remark, that very many of the Administration papers are savagely anathematizing this new-born Sampson of 1 ohtics, and making ceaseless efforts to shear his locks. Their dolorous howls as they gallop in pursuit along the track start le the ancient inhabitants of tho rookeries of old fog v ism, and disturb thoir blissfull dreams of political pp. To be stiro, these sore-headed apostles of wrath know not whercol they complain, but they do know since tho so-called Know -Nothings have, as it is supposed, taken an activo part in politics, the elections have mostly "gone 'tother way." And this is sufficient to provoke tho ire of old fogyisni snd its abet tors. But let not tho people be deceived, nor terrified out of their propriety. (Our coun sel is only to the uninitiated.) Wo know as little about tho aims and objects of tho Know-Nothings as do tho hostile editors of whom we speak which is nothing at all. Our opinions aro founded wholly upon con jecture, and not upon tacts universally known. All we can say is, that since the mysterious agency of this mystorious or der has been supposed to have been the arbiter of elections, a salutary reformation has been in progress, whereby the worst politicians have been rejected and the best men put in office. If this be the fruit by which we are to jude the Know-Nothing tree, we will not hesitate to pronounce- it very good indeed. . And we hopo the tree may plant its roots deep in Republican soil, and live and bear fruit to the honor and glo ry and immortality of American Liberty.

He said, ''Give inebooks, health, quiet, and I care for nothing more." I asked a miser, and he cried, "money, money, money!" I asked a pauper, and he ftintly said, "bread, bread, bread!" I asked a drunkard and he loudly ealled for srongdnnk. I asked the multitude around me, and they lifted up a confused cry.'in whichl heard, "wealth, fame, and pleas ure. I askedapoorman who hadlong borne the character ofan experienced Christian; ho replied that all his wishes could be met in Christ. He spoke seriously, and 1 asked him to explain. He said "I greatly desire those three thirtgs first that I maybe found in Christ; secondly, that I may be like Christ; thirdly, that I may be with Christ," I have thought much of his answer, and the more I think of it tho wiser it seems.

No Goon Deed Lost. Philosophers tell us that since the creation of the world not one single particle has ever been lost. I It may have passed into new shapes it J may have floated sway in smoke or vapor but it is not lost. It will come back again in the dew drop or the rain it will spring up in the fibre of the plant, or paint itself on the rose leaf. Through all its forma tions Providence Watohes over and directs it still. Even so it is with every holy thought or heavenly desire, or humble as piration, or generous and self-denying ef fort. It may escape our observation we may be unable to follow it, but it is an el ement of the moral world, and it is not lost. 3TAn English jury, in a criminal case, brought is his verdict -'Guilty with some little doubt ss to whether he is the man."
