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

moved me; how I worshipped like n sun

“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.
