The lower story of the house on the corner of the square and Main street, now occupied by James II Harris, has been almost completely torn away, and a commodious room, with a beau tiful open front, is being fitted up in its stead, which will be used as a store room, by its present occupant, so soon as finished. And not only will "Jim" have a nice store-room, but a splendid lot of Dry Goods, &c., with which to ornament it. So don't fortrct, ladies. to go and see him as soon as he is pre pared to wait on you, of which, no doubt, you will be duly informed. By-the-way, "Jim"' says that this improvement has been brought about by the agitation of the railroad ques tion. Then if that be so, all we have to say is, that if the mere discussion of tho railroad question makes such im provements, what may we not look for when the road is built. Verily, wc believe the railroad is going to do j good, and no mistake. nj We publish to-day a list of the . , ' ,. appointments ol tho opposing catith- dates for Governor.

A letter has been received from him accepting the invitation. Danger of Carrying Weapons. The papers of the past week re port two cases where young men have lost their lives from the explosion of fire arms in their own pockets. In one instance the pistol fell from the pocket, striking a chain, exploding, and killing its owner. The other was a young cadet in the Virginia Milita ry Institute, 17 years of age, killed by the accidental discbarge of a pistol in hi nvp.rrnat nneket. The father had tnr Kjm( hi siter had HOME PUBLISHED WINCHESTER, taken her seat in tho vehicle, and as he threw his coat over his arm, the pocket struck the banister of the stair way, exploding the pistol. The ball entered the left side, just above the hip, and passed through his body. Ho lived about 12 hours in great pain, and expired.

We learn from our exchanges that a great number of people North of Clinch Mountain, in Tennessee, are actually starving there being no corn or wheat in that section of the State.

Goino to a "Bkttek Col'.ntrv." A Christian does not turn his baek upon the things of this world, because he has no natural capacity to enjoy them, no taste lor them, tuit because the Holy .Spirit has shown him greater and better things. He wants flowers that w'll never fade; he wants some thing that a man can take with him to another world. Ho is like a man who has had notice to quit his house, and having secured a new one, he is no more anxious to repair, much less to embellish and beautify the old one; his thoughts are upon the removal. If you hear him converse, it is upon the house to which he is going. Thither he sends his goods, and thus he declares plainly what he is seeking. - Cicil. I low to Select a Wife. When a young woman, while in tho act of sweeping, approaches you with kind words and gracious looks, and politely requests you to move, for she wants to sweep where you are sitting, depend upon it, she is the girl you want, so far, certainly, as temper is concerned; for never is a woman so petulant, so dom ineering as when she has a broom in her hand, except it is when she has a mop. He who in the same given time can produce more than another, has vigor; he who can produce more and better, has talent; he who can produce what no one else can, has genius. It is not health, nobility or riches that justify a wicked man; nor is it the want of all these that can discred it a good one. A good character, good habits and iron industry are impregnable to the assaults of all the ill luck that fools ever dreamed of.

The beautiful bride grow pale the decisive hour had corne. She pressed her white hands together, and the leaves of her bridal wreath trembled on her pure brow ; her breath came quicker, her heart beat wilder. 'Yes, Marion, lay aside your scru pies for this once,' said the Judge, in a low tone, going towards his daughter; 'the company expect it. Do not so sc riously infringe on the rules of eti qucttc; in your own home, act as you please, but in mine for this once try and please me.' Every eye was turned towards the bridal pair. Marion's principles wore well known. r t iii ii. tiarvey naa ueen ot late a convi- vialist, and his friends noticed a great change in his manners, the difference in his habits, and to-night they watch ed to see, as they sneeririgly said, i f he was tied down to a woman's opinion so soon. Pouring a brimming beaker, they held it with prompting smiles to wards Marion. She was very pale, though more composed, and her hand shook not, as, smiling, she gracefully accepted the crystal tempter and rais ed it to her lips: but scarcely had she done so, when every hand was arrest ed by her piercing exclamation of Oh, how terrible!' "What is it?' cried one and all, thronging together, for she. had slowly carried the glass at arm's length, and was fixedly regarding it as though it were some hideous object. 'Waif,' she answered, while an in spired light shone I'rom her dark eyes, and added, slowly pointing one jewel ed linger at the sparkling, ruby liquid, 'a sight that beggars all description; and yet listen, I will paint it for you if I can. It is a lonely spot; tall moun tains, crowned with verdure, rise in awful sublimity around; a river runs through, and bright flowers grow to the water's rdge. There is a thick warm mist that the sun seeks vainly to pierce. Trees, lofty .and beautiful, waive to the airy motion of the winds; but there are a group of Indians to gether; they flit to and fro with some thing like sorrow on their brows, and in the midst lies a manly form; but his cheeks, how deathly his eyes wild with the fierce fire of fever! One friend stands beside him; nay, I should say, kneels; for see! he is pillowing that poor head upon his breast. 'Genius in ruins! On the high, holy looking brow! Why should death mark it, and Jie so young! Look how he throws back the damp curls! see him clasp his hands! hear his thrilling shrieks for life! mark how he clutches at the form of his companion, implo ring to bo saved! Oh, hear him call piteously his father's name see him twine his fingers together as he shrieks for his sister, his only sister, the twin of his soul, weeping for him in his dis tant native land. 'See!' she exclaimed, while the bri dal party shrank back; the untasted wine trembled in their faltering grasp and the Judge fell overpowered on his scat; 'see! his arms are lifted to Heav- en; he prays, 0 how wildly, for mer-j ey: not lever rusnes mrougn Ins Hot fever rushes through veins. The friend beside him is weep ing and awe-stricken; the dark men move silently away, and leave the dy ing and living together.' There was a hush in that princely party, broken only by what seemed a smothered sob from some manly bo som. The bride stood yet upright, with tears Btealing to the outward edge of her lashes. Her beautiful arm had lost its tension, and the glass, wun ns nine irouDiea reu waves, came slowly toward the range of her vision. She spoko again. Every lip was mute.

Death and no soft hand, no gentle voice to bless and soothe him. His head sinks back; one convulsive shudder -he is dead!' A groan ran through the assembly so vivid was her description, so un earthly her look, so inspired her man ner, that what she described seemed actually to have taken place then and there. They noticed, also, that tho bridegroom hid his face in his hands, and was weeping. 'Dead!' she repeated again, her lips quivering faster and faster, and her voice more broken; 'and there they scoop him a grave; and there, without a shroud, they lay him down in ,!;at damp, reeking earth- The only sc'-pf a proud father, and the idolized brni- er of a fond sister; and he sleeps to day in that distant country, with no stone to mark the spot! There he lies, my father's son, my own twin-brother, a victim to this deadly poison. Father!' she exclaimed, turning suddenly, while the tears rained down her beautiful cheeks, 'father, shall I drink it now?' The form of the old Judge was con vulsed with aironv. He raised his lead, but in a smothered voice ho fal tered 'No, no my child, in God's name, no!' She lifted tho glittering goblet, and letting it fall, it was dashed into a thousand pieces. Many a tearful eyo watched her movement, and instanta neously the wine glass was transferred to the marble on which it had been prepared. Then, as she looked at the fragments of crystal, she turned to the companr, saying 'Let no friend who loves me, here after tempt me to peril my soul for wine. Not firmer arc the everlasting hills than my resolve, God helping me, never to touch or taste that terrible poison; and he, too, to whom I havo given my hand, who watched over my brother's dying form in that solemn hour, and buried the dear wanderer there by the river, in that land of gold, will, I trust, sustain me in that resolve. Will you not, my husband?' His glistening eyes, his sad, sweet smile was her answer. The Judge left the room, and when, an hour af ter, he returned and in a more sub dued manner took a part in the enter tainment of the bridal guests, no one could fail to read that he too had de termined to banish the enemy at once and forever from his princely home. Those who were present at that wedding can never forget the impres sion so solemnly made. Many from that hour foreswore tho social glass. It may bo sufficient to say that the young couple never broke their sol emn pledge, but to this day take plea sure in reciting the thrilling sketch of the Bridal Wine Cup. .
