Woman’s llights—A Story of Leap Year. Sam Smith sat at home on New Year's •lay, in dishabille. His beard- was un* shaved, his hair uncombed, his longhoot* were nnblacked, and he was leaning back in a picturesque attitude, with his heel, against the mantle-piece smoking a cigars Sin thought to himself that as this waa leap year, how glorious it would be if the ladies would pop the question in accord ance with their ancient privileges. As he sat watching the smoke which so gracefully ctir’ed hi< fancy glowed with the idea, how delighbd if would be to have the dear creatures fondling on him, and with their tender glances endeavoring to do the agreeable. As he nn-ditafed, his hea't softened, and he began to fee] a squeamish, womanish sensibility diffuse over his feeling, and be thought he should faint with propriety the first time a woman should squeeze his hand. Rap, rap, rap, sounded at the door; Sam peeped through the Venetian blinds. “Mercy, ’ exc aimed he, “if there isn’t Miss lories—and I all dishabille, and look ing like a fright, good graci us. 1 must go right away and fix myself” As he left the room, M iss Jones entered, and with a composed air intimated that she w ould wait. M iss Jones was a firm believer in woman’s rights, and now that the season was propitious, she determined to fake advantage thereof, and do a little courting on her own hook. It was one of I he woman’s privileges, v\ hi*h had been usurped by ihe tyrant, man, and she de termined to assert her rights in spite of the hollow forma itiesof the false system of society. “Dearest, how beautiful you look,” ac companying her words with a glance of undi-g u ised a dim ration, “Spare the blushes of « modest young man,” said Sam, app ying the cambric to his face to hide his contusion. “Nay, my love, why so coy?” snid Susan, “turn not away those beautiful eyes, dark as jet, but sp irklmg as a dia mond. Listen to the voice of fond affec tion. Here let us rest;” said s e, draw ing him to the sofa, “there, with my arm around thee, will I protect my true affec tion.” • “Leave, oh ! leave me!” murmured Snip, “think of my youth and inexperience— spare my palpitating heart.” “Leave ifu-e !” said > usan, pressing him closer to her, “never until the story of restless nights, of unquiet days of aspira tion, fond emotions, and undying love is laid before thee. Know that for years 1 have nursed for thee a secret passion Need 1 i* II you how such manly, beauty moved me; how I worshipped like n sun flower in the lurid light of these raven tresses; how my fond heart wits entrapped in the meshes of those magnificent whis kers; how I would \ it- Id to the govern ment of that imperial; thy manners so modest, so delicate, enchant* d me- joy to me- for thy joy was my joy. My heart is ever thine—take it—but first let me snatch one kiss from those ruby ips.” I he overwhelming feelings of the de licate you I) were 'no strung, end he taint ed fn m ex '8- i f joy. Meanwhile the • iiamor.al maiden hung fomlly over him, and Sh>w y the ey es of Samuel w rnith open 'd—lie g; zed wildly about him—tlen meeting the ardent gaze of his lover, he Miishi d deeply, ami from behind his h ittd kerchief family falteied our, “Ask my him.” “In fok I wo Chincfs.”—A meeting of the subscribers to the Cotillion Parries, was advertised in the >tockton Journal, on Monday, to take place that evening t tile New \oi k Hot I. \t the appointed hour, says the Journal, the sidt-erihert* assembled, and as they drew up around the stoves, if was noticed that several strange, *w arlhy-looking homines otra iiiented the room, “saying nary a wotd,” but listening profoundly to what was being said by others. An adj urnment of the subscribers to another room was proposed; ami tis they moved oft, two of ifie strangers ventnml a ong, n d look steals in the consulting cin le. 'lbis in trusion rou'd not be tolerateo, and oi e of' the subscribers very bland \ inform* d the strangers that the assemblage theie was private, and all who were nut sub -miters, were intruders. “VVa I, fiiend, that thar needn’t disturb \er, for me and ibis here chap as is with me, are willin to -nb-cribe right off— you needn’t jump, we won’t te I a word about it.” An explanation took place, and as the stranger was led into the secret, his nether lip fell, anti his eyes lost half their lustre, as he sovvly left the room, muttering to his companion, “Wall, by hokey, if 1 don’t feel mean. Here I have been stoppin’ in this nll fired dull town this darned cold day, just to join a filibuster crowd, anil here it* nothing bur a lot of dance* I have put my foot in,” and with this he left, car rying off' all the strange crowd in the next room; and from the noises that after wards disturbed the town, we can rea sonably decide that the disappointed parly went fillihustering down in “Hongkong.” The *hip White Squall reached Naw York on the 20th of December, after a remarkably short passage of 93 daya from San Francisco.
