Good Ones from Hooper. — Hoopeb, au- 
thor of » Simon Suggs," and editor of the 

Montgomery Mail, fires off the following j 
good one : 

Bribing Congressmen — "A Joke." — We j 
believe that it was $1500 that Congressman j 
Edwards, of New York, offered Mr. Paine, 
of North C arolina, for his vote. Edward* 
says it was "all a joke." This reminds us 
of the story of old Parasot, the Mississippi 
infidel Frenchman, who once blasphemous- 
ly declared to a friend that our Saviour stole 
the jackass on which he rode into Jerusa- 
lem. But, a year or two afterwards, the 
old fellow took the cholera, and had two i 
stout negroes rubbing stimulating liniments ' 
upon his tortured abdomen, when, mindful 
of his blasphemy, he exclaimed, between 
the heists of the disease: "Oh, mon Dieu! 
— mon Dieu !— -ven I tell old Mat low --zat 
Sheezas Christ— vns sfraf zat jackass — 1 
tras /oAy/" 

Edward's is just such another joke.

down to prayer, a lady, in a tone of horror, 
raised the cry of s-n-a-k-e ! Great excite- 
ment prevailed, and there was a mighty 
rush from the dangerous locality. At length 
a gentleman advanced to the spot, gazed a 
moment upon the coiled monster, and then 
pouncing upon it, held up to the view of the 
startled crowd a whalebone hoop, which 
had wriggled itself out of a lady 's petticoat 
and quietly coiled itself upon the floor. 
This is a fact, and ought to admonish the 
ladies of the danger of not securing the

yesterday. A free negro died lately in the

His wife and children are slaves in Virginia. 
The properly vested in the United States 
for the want of heirs. The bill proposes to 
re-invest it in his wife and children upon 
their being released from slavery by their 
present owners. It is understood that the 
owners are prepared to liberate the slaves 
on the passage of a law authorising them to 
take possession of the property. The bill 
assed the House by a large majority, and

tion. This is believed to be the first

tution in which the North and South have 
harmonized on a bill involving "legislation

man's little girl saw fit to remind the other 
of her father's well known poverty, and in- 
timated rather tartly that, had it not been 
for her father's benevolent interference, the

might have been heart! lo drop, while Mr. 
Fillmore went on with a speech, which at 
once gave him rank among the ablest deba-

of .Mr. Fillmore, and ;?aid that, from the 
foregoing incident, he bad imbibed the most

Tiik Two Heirs.— -I remember," says 
a late Postmaster General of the United 
States, "tlie first time 1 visited Burlington, 
Vermont, as Judge of the Supreme Court. 
I had left it many years before, a poor boy.

me. Approaching the court-house, for the 
first time, in company with several gentle- 
men of the bench and bar, I noticed in the 
court-house yard, a large pile of old fnrni- 
ture about to be sold at auction. The 
scenes of early boyhood, with which I was 
surrounded, prompted me to ask whose it 
was. I was told it belonged to Mr. J. — 
Mr. J. \ I remember a family of that name, 
very wealthy; there was a son, too; can it

Rights o» Marrikd Women is Indiana. 
— The House of Representatives of Indi- 
ana have passed a bill, securing to married 
women whose husbands have abandoned 
them, either voluntarily, or by the compul- 
sion of a judicial sentence, in cases of felo- 
ny, all their own property, real and person- 
al, all they may make during such deser- 
tion, and all the proceeds of debts due their 
husbands, for the support of themselves and 
families. The object of the bill, the Indian- 
apolis Journal considers, is to give desert- 
ed wives the benefit of their own labor and 
earnings, and secure them against the ex- 
actions of mean husbands. As the law 
has been, a worthless husband, after an ab- 
sence of years, could return and deprive 
the wife of all that she might have accumu- 
lated, while he was away playing the sot. 
The Indianapolis Journal remarks: 

We hope this bill will pass the Senate 
and become the law. It is » righteous law, 
with much provision against evil, and a few 
obstructions in the way of good in it. Mr. 
Denby, of Evansville, deserves credit for 
his introduction and support of this mea.- 

experienced did not proceed from the gr/i- ivvilled Bagging; blue Drills and Denems, and Ripka 

Cottonade. Krimlins, brown and bleached Crash, dec. 
all of which I am determined to sell on as good terms 
as can be afforded in this market for ca$k, or to punc- 
tual dialers. Very respectfully,

Monument to OoL John Hardin. 
Hill Cemetery 

We have no doubt the severity of the 
weather, since the erection of the splendid 
•nonament to the memory of Col. John 
Hardin, has prevented numbers of our cit- 
izens from seeing this beautiful piece of 
sculpture. It is, we believe, the only re- 
ally fine specimen of the kind in our coun 
ty ; and the monument, together with the 
beauty of the Cemetery grounds, will well 
repay a visit. 

This monument, erected to the memory 
of his father, by our esteemed fellow-cili- 
len, Mark Hardin, Esq.. is of fine Italian 
marble, from the work-shop of Mr. Edgar 
Nebdm am, of Louisville. It is in exquisite 
proportion, from the base to the capital, and 
the symbolical allusions admirably devised 
arid executed. 

The well known character of Col. John 
IKrdin, as a Christian, Pioneer, Soldier, 
and Patriot, is beautifully set forth in ex- 
quisite has-relief by the sculptor, in the 
open Bible, with ihe dove and olive-branch, 
the .Id fashioned Kentucky rifle and pow- 
der-horn, the rannnn and small-arms, and 
t e flag of niir country. Iib*rty-cap. &c, 
and in the fim ly sculptured eagle that sur- 
mounts the capital. 

Not having space in this article, we give 
in another column some extracts from Mar- 
shall's History of Kentucky, of the char- 
acter and deeds of Col. Hardin, whose life 
was* sacrificed in a mission on which he 
departed, attended only by an interpreter, 
a' the reqnest of Gen. Washinoton, to the 
ruthless savages, whose inroads upon our 
earlv settlements were marked in blood and 
ashes, and in the broken hearts ol the sur- 
vivors of their ferocities. We sre glad that 
his memory is thus to be perpetuated, and 
earnestly hope that our State will do still 
more to hand down to posterity the memo- 
ry of her gallant pioneers, whose deeds 
in the wilderness, during our settlement 
struggles, if performed in the days of Mar- 
athon »nd Thermopylae, would have been 
celebrated in brass and marble, and filled 
the text-books of our schools; where to be 
ignorant ol the semi-barbaric heroes of 
Greece and Rome, is a lamentable manifes- 
tation of ignoranee. while not one in ten 
knows of even the names of the gallant pi- 
oneers of the western country, whose deeds 
ofchivaln and noble magnanimity surpass 
even embellished classie story. 

The rapidly increasing number of white 
tablets and monuments, proclaiming from 
afar its appropriation for the dead, has al- 
ready given to Grove Hill the appearance 
of a much older cemetery, — being little 
more than a year since it was surveyed and 
laid off for that purpose. Our Representa- 
tive, Marion C. Taylor, Esq., having ob- 
tained from the Legislature of 1854 a char- 
ed with tins position, and decided accord- 1 ter  ° r » cemetery company, under the title

volving co:. tracts made lor electioneering 
purposes, has recently been decided in New 
York. The facts were: The Black Re- 
publican Vigilance Committee of New York 
re-ted a large hall for the meetings of the 
partv. specifying in the contract that they 
agreed to pav for the use ot ihe hall so much 
per month until John C. Fremont wa$ 
elected President of the United State*. So 
soon as the result of the election was known 
they abandoned the hall, and tendered it to 
proprietor. He refused  o receive it; as 
Fremont had not yet been elected Presi- 
dent. On the refusal of the Black Repub- 
licans to continue to pay rent, the proprie- 
tor of the hall sued therefore, m the Marine 
Court, t!ie members of the committee and 
their sureties. In delence, it was urged, 
that all cot) tracts for the payment of money 
for election purposes were void, as contrave- 
ning the election law. The Judge coincid

James Gr en. a deferred case, was pre- 
sented tor receiving and selling stolen cat- 
tle, knowing them to be stolen. 

Mr. Husb. from Shelby, appeared and 
that he had lost three steers, and 
thi accused say he had sold the cat- 
tle, having obtained them from a negro map. 
of Mr. Hus*. The cattle were stolen in 
November, r nd the owner overheard the 
conversation 'aet Saturday. One of the 
steers wa* a yellow red. and the other two 
were spotted r"d and white, each weighing 
about 650. 

Mr. Moorf ratified lo rinding Green who 
confessed to r reiving the cattle while liv- 
ing here in Louisville, from the negro in 
question, and selling them for *36, divid- 
ing the money with the slave. He sold 
them to a German butcher. 

Said Green is presumed 1 1 be crazy, or 

and the only security that could be offered 
to the seller of the grounds being a lien up- 
on a grave-yard, there was very little in- 
ducement to sell to the Company. All 
these difficulties were made known to Mr. 
Hardin, the owner of Grove Hill; who 
however readily made the sale. On the 
election of the Trustees, it was decided that 
no deed should be accepted from Mr. Har- 
din, unless the full amount of the cost of the 
grounds was obtained by subscription. Af- 
ter a long effort, t900 was still lacking. 
Mr. Hardin immediately subscribed for 
that amount in lots, subject to sale by the 
trustees, and generously permitted the pro- 
ceeds from sales of said lots to he used by 
the Company, as a loan, to enable them to 
commence the improvement of the grounds, 
until they should be able to repay him. Mr.

situated, the graceful windings of the creek 
around our town, its waters, kept in deep- 
est shade by stately old elms and syca- 
mores, through the sweeping branches of 
which, the bridges that span the creek—the 
town with its many spires, and woods, roll- 
ing fields and farm-houses for miles around, 
form a most romantic landscape. Ever

From Marshall's History of Kentucky. 

The subject of this biography, was born 
in Fauquier county, Virginia, the 1st of 
October, 1753. His parents were poor 
people, who obtained an honest lining, by 
their labor. Martin Hardin, the father, re- 
moved from Fauquier to George's creek, 
of Monongahela, when bis son John w us 
about twelve years of age. He had already 
learned the use of the rifle, and delighted in 
hunting the deer. 

In the spring of the year 1774 rendered 
memorable in Virginia, by the expedition of 
Governor Dunmore. against the Indians, 
then at war. young Hardin, not then twen- 
ty-one years of age, was appointed an en- 
sign in a military eoinp;iii) . In the August 
ensuing, he volunteered with Captain Zack 
Morgan, had an action with a party of In 
dians, in which he waa wounded, while on 
one knee, the better to support his rifle, in 
aiming it against the enemy. The ball 
struck his thigh on the outer side, ranged 
up it about seven inches; and lodged near 
the groin— whence it never was extracted. 
The enemy were beaten, and fled. Thus 
early, was he initiated info the mysteries ol 
Indian warfare. * 

Before Ensign Hardin, recovered from 
this wound, or could dispense with his 
crutches, he joined Dunmore, on his inarch 
to the Indian tow ns. In these transactions, 
is to be seen the spirit, which prompts, to 
the exercise of hunting, and the enterprise 
of w ar: the spirit, which elevates men, into 
heroes; and devotes them to the service of 
their species — and to fame. 

Soon after the peace which ensued, Har- 
din turned his attention towards Kentucky, 
as to a scene for new adventure; and had 
actually prepared for the journey, with Col. 
Crawford, and some others; but this was 
declined — probably on account of the in- 
creasing rumors of approaching war, on the 
Atlantic coast. For, his ears, seem to have 
been forever open to the voice of Bellona. 

The American Congress, having deter- 
mined to raise an army, the business of re- 
cruiting, was extended into the part of the 
country, where young Hardin resided, in 
1776; to which he applied himself. His 
success enabled him to join the camp, with 
the command of a second lieutenant. He 
was afterwards attached to Morgan's rifle 
corps — which was generally upon the lines: 
and with which he served, until his resig- 
nalion of a first lieutenant's commission, in 
December, 1779. In the mean time, he ac- 
quired, and held, a high place in the confi- 
dence and esteem of General Daniel Mor- 
gan. By whom he was often selected, for 
enterprises, of peril, which required discre- 
tion and intrepidity combined, to ensure 
success, in their execution. 

There are a few anecdotes committed to 
tradition, that deserve tob* commemorated. 
While with the northern army, he was  ent 
out on a reconnoitering excursion, wiih or 
ders to take a prisoner, for the purpose of 
obtaining information. Marching silently, 
in advatice of his party, on rising tothe top 
of an abrupt hill, he m I two or three Brit- 
ish soldiers, and a Mohawk Indian. Tde 
moment was both critical, and awful. Har- 
din fell no hesitation — his rifle w as instant- 
ly presented. and they, ordered to surren- 
der. The British, immediately threw down 
their arms — the Indian, clubbed his gun. — 
They stood; while he, continued to ad- 
vance on them; but none of his men hav- 
ing come up with him, and thinking that 
he might want some assistance, he turned 
his head a little as he called to them to 
come on; and at this moment, the Indian 
warrior, observing his eye withdrawn from 
htm, reversed his gun, with a rapid motion, 
in order to shoot Hardin; when he, catch- 
ing in his vision the gleam of light which 
was reflected from the polished barrel of 
this instrument of death, and with equal ra- 
pidity apprehending its meaning, was 
prompt to prevent the dire effect. He 
brings his rifle to a level, in his own hands 
— and fires her— without raising her to his 
face — he had not time— the attempt would 
have given the Indian the first fire — on that 
depended life, and death — he gained it; and 
gave the Indian a mortal wound: who, also 
firing in the succeeding moment, sent his 
ball through Hardin's hair. 

What a combination of circumstances ! 
What facility — what precision — what forti- 
tude, ia here displayed. A happy associ- 
ation of intellect, and dexterity, ensures his 
superiority, and saves his life. 

The rest of the party, made no reaistance, 
but were marched to camp. On this occa- 
sion, Hardin received the thanks of Gen. 

At another time, while the British held 
Philadelphia, and General Waahington waa 
endeavoring to circumscribe them within as 
narrow bounds as possible; Hardin, being 
on the lines with hia lieutenant's command, 
in order to pick up stragglers; and receiv- 
ing intelligence that some of the tories. from 
the back counties, were driving several 
wagons laden with provisions, down to the 
city; he determined at every haxard to 
seize them. Accordingly he threw himself 
and party, on their route; and pursued 
them, within sight of the enemy's outpoats, 
before he eame up with the wagons; which, 
with the escort, he captured— wheeled 
about the teams, and drove them to hia own 
camp. • • • 

In April, 1786, having a wife and family, 
' them from Monongahela, to 

Pleasant run. in Nelson, afterwards Wash 
ingtou county. Kentucky. 

In the same year, he volunteered under 
General Clark, for the Wabash expedition; 
and was appointed quartermaster— without 
funds. It is evidence, nevertheless, of the 
good reputa in which he was held. 

There was in 1787 and '88, an abatement 
of Indian hostilities — at least, no formida- 
ble expedition took place, which called for 
retaliation. In 1789, among other depre- 
dations, a considerable party of Indians 
stole the horses of Mr. Hardin, at the time, 
called Major, and those of his neighbors; 
without so much, as leaving him one for 
the plough. The marauders were pursued;

but escaped, by crossing the Ohio 

In the course of the year, he was up- 
pointed coanty lieutenant, with rank of col 
onel, which gave him the command of the 

militia of die county. 

As the summer advanced, he determined 
to cross the Ohio with a strong party of his 
militia, aiil scour the country for some 
mile* ou:; in order, if there were any 
camps of Indians in that quarter, to break 
them up. Accordingly, he made his desire 
of assembling volunteers known; and was 
joined at the place of rendevous, by two 
hundred mounted men, ready for the enttr- 
urise. With these he proceeded across the 
river, and on one of the branches of the 
Wabash, fell on a camp of about thirty 
8h wanees — v horn he attacked, and defeat- 
ed, with the loss of nine killed, and two 
Natost prisoners. Two of his own party 
were wounded — none killed, nor taken.— 
From these Indians, Colonel Hardin re-- 
covered two of the horses, and some colts 
which had been stolen in the spring of the 
year. And it is worthy of note, that no 
more hoises were stolen from that neigh- 
borhood, during the residue of the war. 

His subsequent military transactions 
have already been interwoven with similar 
occurrences, into the genera' history; and 
need not be repeated — for they will not be 
forgotten. e o e 

He was a man of unassuming manners, 
and great gentleness of deportment; yet of 
singular firmness, and inflexibility, as to 
matters of truth and justice. If he loved 
popularity, he sacrificed no principle to 
gain, none to retain, the possession. And, 
although he was popular, in a high degree, 
he used it to no purpose of self aggrandixe 
ment. Sinister designs, he never formed

saying that peace and quiet prevail through-

had no doubt will continue as long as the 
Indians are treated with ordinary justice. 
The disposition of the troops is such as 
not only to give protection to ihe white set- 
tlements, but to restrain the Indians should 
they exhibit any intentions to renew the 
war, which from the information he has re- 
ceived, he does not in the least apprehend.

Still Advancing. — At a municipal elec- 
tion held a few days ago in the I2ih ward 
of the city of Baltimore, the American can-

in the same Ward in November. This is

talk about a snow bank opposite the hotel

thirty feet high. An arch was cut through

Fatal Affray. — A difficulty took place 
in this city t n Thursday last, between two 
negro men, viz: Leander, belonging to Mr. 
Thomas Bradley, and Thornton, belonging 
to Judge Buckner, in which the former was 
struck on the head with a rock by the lat- 
ter, from the effects of which he died on 
Monday morning. Thornton was struck 
several timea, as we understand, by Lean- 
der, and was pretty severely bruised in the 
roncountre. The difficulty, it is stated, 
grew out of a debt of twenty-five cents, 
which one of the parties claimed to be due 
from the other. Thornton was arrested 
immediately after the death of Leander, and 
lodged in jail to await an investigation of 
the affair.— / .r. Obs. s  Reporter. 

Executed. — The execution of three of 
the five murderers of Mr. Green, of Prince 
William county, Va. took place on the 13th. 
They confessd their dreadful crime some 
time ago, and since then have professed great 
penitence for it. At noon, the three — Old 
Nelly, aged from 65 to 76, her daughter 
Jane, and the eldest boy, (the two younger 
boys, twins, aged fifteen or sixteen, being 
respited)— emerged from the jail under the 
guard of the High Sheriff of the eounty, 
his deputies and the jailor, and, mounting 
a two horse wagon, were conveyed to the 
place of execution, where a space of near 
an acre in extent had been cleared for the 
erection of the gallows, standing room for 
the spectators, etc.

well aware that we have many women in 
our midst who live splendidly by forced 
levies from wealthy bachelors, and whose 
hold upon a fat bank aeeount has the te-

and bleed, and bleed, and say nothing.—

She is oftener in society than society im-

The reason assigned for beating her, was, 

4th day of March, 1857, instead of James 
Buchanan, have been inaugurated Presi- 
dent of the Republic of the United States 

she attended the Ragged Sabbath 
School (Protestant.) It is claimed that her 
death, two or three weeks nfterwards, re- 
sulted from the " 

visited the various exhibitions and contests 
for suprHinacy ; 'and his mechanical eye 
soon detected the faults, and suggested im- 
provements, until he has turned out the 
plow now known as the " Brinly Plow 
which, for arti6tical skill and mechanical 
ingenuity, is certainly hard to beat. 

.Mr. Brinly has lost a great deal of lime, 
and expended considerable money, in per- 
fecting his plow. He has, however, come 
off with laurels ol which he is, as he should 
be. proud. He has ahnut jorty-fivt silver 
cups, as premiums, which were awarded 
him over all competitors, at the various 
F:iirst, — viz: at Paris, Lexington, Danville, 
Bloomfield. Eminence, and Louisville, at 
their annual exhibitions ; also, at Paris, 
this last year, — being the State Exhibition. 
He has, also, taken premiums at thc State 
air in Indiana ; at the Fair in Nashville, 
Tennt ssee, and, I believe, at some Fairs in 
Ohio. He has established a reputation for 
his plows in the South, as well as at home. 
He told me, a few days since, that he had 
lately received orders for three hundred, to 
to be sent out immediately. He can turn 
out, when under full blast, fifteen plows r er 
day. He is decide lly the largest manufac- 
turer in the county. Ought not the citizens 
of Shelby to be proud of such mechanics, 
and give them their ptlronage for plows ? 
1 live fifteen miles from him — the way I 
have to travel now, and I consider it lime 
well spent to go that far and buy my plows, 
rather than work a crop wilh an indiflVrent 

This will not be seen bv Brinly, till he 
reads it in your paper, and I think it due to 
merit, that he should be thus noticed. So, 
farmers, if you want a good Plow, send on 
your orders. Don't be afraid you can't I 
get them in time; fifteen per day will sup- 
ply quite a number. 

But, while I say thus mtieh for Brinly, 
justice to another of Shelby's blacksmiths, 
requires a passing notice. Our frisnd and 
acquaintance, John T. Davis, though not 
carrying on so largely, is some. — certain. ; 

He never visited the Fairs, like Brinly ; ; 
was content to stay at home, and watch the [ 
improvements as they came from ths Brin- 
If Shop. He (Davis) always rejoiced when 
Brinly got premiums, (except when at Em- 
inence;) for it was his determination to so : 
construct a Plow that it would take from 
the chaplet of the vioter some of his lau- 
rels. He had been working for thia object , 
several years, and has at last succeeded. | 
At the late Fair at Eminence, Davis met 
Brinly, and to Davis's Stubble Plow was 
the cup awarded. Mr. Davis, I understand, 
still carries on, and has a " few more of the 
same sort" left. So, neighbors, send in 
your orders. Years ago, I used one of 
them, and frequently say it was the best 
Plow ever made. Fahmer.

So ran Kate's thoughts, and they were

their heads knowingly, for they saw plainly

the conversation was dropped. As they 
walked up the broad isle, Mr. Pfctor open- 
ed his pew door, and Kale entered.

the powerful emotions which worked so 
wildly within her. The prayer was made

lift her head. 

The sermon was commenced — from the 
text, "Come unto me all ye that labor, and

Horses' Coats. —Lately going to the 
country to speud a few weeks with a friend 
ol mine, I drove a very hadsome horse, and 
a good 'un — but was always annoyed about 
his coat, as it was more like a lot of bris- 
tles than a horse's smooth skin, and all the 
I grooming he got "wouldn't do it no good." 
My friend, who is a great horse breeder and 
fancier, made me try giving him a few car- 
rots every day to eat out of my hand, say- 
ing that he would have a good, smooth coat 
in three weeks, — and he was right, for in 
that time my horse had a beautilul. sleeic. 
glossy coat, and all from eating a few raw 
carrot* daily. He tells me it is infallible.

though Kate (Jul tiot probably see it at the 
time; He engaged her heart, and at the 
same time kept :i firm hold upon her re- 
spect. There was a peculiar air of educa- 
ted refinement which at once manifested it- 
self lo her, and commanded her ndmiration; 
and she admired it because she discovered 
it without bietrving in show it. And then

fragrance from a thousand dewy flowers. 
' Lindsay said something about the calm and 
holy influence of a qui»t summer's evening 
Upon those who were il peace with the 
world and themselves, and who could look 
up to the Giver of all good with grateful 
hearts. It was not spoken tanctiraoniously 
n"r yet with the least outward show of pi- 
ety. It was a thought from the heart, 
warm and pure. 

Kate made a modest reply, and a conver- 
followed. In a short time the fair, 
is in tears, and all from 
pure gratitude to God for the thousand 
blessings she enjoyed. Her companion 
talked as she had never iieard any one talk 
beiore. He presented the subject to her so 
kindly and sweetly, and his words were so 
full of love and devotion, that ere she knew 
it she found the whole theme of heavenly 
goodness opened to her mind. 

From this topic he pnssed to the subject 
of astronomy, and Kate listened with eager 
interest while h° pointed out some of the 
constellations, and then related to her some 
of the curious mythological stories which 
the ancients associated with them. 

They walked very slowly; and as Kate 
discovered that her companiondid not know 
the most direct way to her house, she led 
him a long way out of the nearest route. — 
But home was reached at last, and ere they 
parted, the maiden reminded him that her 
parents had invited him to call upon them, 
and she hoped he would not forget it. He 
pr. mised that he would not, and then took 
his leave. 

Without going into any extended show 
of developments, we will simply say that 
K.tte Procior was in love. She loved 
Charles Lindsay with her whole heart; he 
had tsken it captive. He had charmed her 
ftney, and at the same life seized upon 
sjsf respect and esteem. She not only car- 
r t - J in her mind the image of a handsome 
young man, but in her soul she held the as- 
surance that he was noble and pure. So 
she not only loved, but her love was strongly 

On the following day but very little was 
said nbout Mr. Lindsat; Kaie seemed to 
avoid the eohjeot. On the day succeeding 
tint, when Mr. Proctor drne home in the 
evening, he brought Mr. Lindsay with him. 
So Kair- spent another evening in hiseom- 
ajsjsjjr, When the maiden laid her head 
upon her pillow thai night, she knew that 
*he loved. She tried to hide the lact no 
mere. She first examined her heart, and 
she found that "Charles" — she loved that 
name — had the whole of it, Then she ex- 
amined her judgment, and she could find no 
reason why she should not love him; but 
she found a hundred reasons why she should 
love him, and cherish, respect, and honor 
him, too. 

Onthe evening of the next day, Mr. Proc- 
tor called Ka«e aside, and told her thai he 
had a matter   f importance upon which to 
speak with her. She gazed wonderingly 
into his face, for he looked very serious and 

"My child," he said. "I have seen Mr. 
Lindsay this afternoon, and he has asked 
me if he might sue for your heart and hand. 

cnyg j,,-^ are tne f, r8t person whom he 
has loved as he now loves, and he feels as- 
sured that y ou will make him happy always. 
1 knowthat he loves you, Kate : and 1 know 
.aa'. Ve is worthy of you. Do you think 
thai vou could love him ? What ! — tears!' 
ottered the parent in surprise, as he saw 
hia daughter how her head, and noticed the 
bier drops trickle down between her fingers. 
"I had not thought it would offend you so. 
Surdv, mv rhild. you do not think that he 
is un — " 

Mr. Proctor whs interrupted by Kate's 
tailing upon ni» neck ; and as she did so 

•he murmured : 

"Oh, I do lore him father* 1 love him 
with mv whole heart I f cant help these 


The parent caught his child to his hos- 

tile peace giving influence of the Gospel, 
and a firm reliance nn the love of God and 
Christ. He painted the holy joys of the 
true Christian in such resplendent colors, 
that all hearts were opened; and souls that 
had lain dormant for years, were awaken- 
ed to a sense of love and gratitude. M:tny 
an eye was wiped as the Bibl« was at 
length closed, and one simultaneous mur- 
mur of half a thousand deep-drawn breaths 
told how all had been enchained. 

Kate saw the old men and young men — 
old women and young women— crowd about 
the minister, as he came down from the pul 
pit, and she marked how warmly they grasp- 
ed his hand, and how eager they were to 
gain his smile. Then it was that a feeling 
of pride — of deep, holy gratitude — came 
upon her soul. He, so honored and flat- 
tered — he, whom all seem so anxious to 
know — he, so powerful in mind, and so el- 
evated in manhood — loved her boat of all. 

She walked out by her lather's side, and 
erelong the minister found the old place at 
the left hand. They walked a long dis- 
tance in silence. Finally Kate said : 
"It was — was—" 

"Waa what?" asked har companion, ga- 
zing earnestly into her face. 

"It was cruel to deceive tne so !"

A hearty laugh followed ihis retort; and 
Kate thought some of them laughed rather 
funnily. But the conversation took anoth- 
er turn, and ere long. Lindsay and Kate 
were again conversing together. They 
t dked hooui various things; and after a 

'•And now," said Lindsay, after they had 
conversed a long while, "on Sunday eve- 
ning I shall he here again. I cannot ask 
you uow to give me a final answer. But 
at that time — it is the day after to-morrow 
— I may ask vou if vou will give me vour 
Innd for life." 

Kate rrsied her head upon his shoulder, 
and told him she would think seriously of 
it. She meant it pleasantly, for she had 
thought enough in her own estimation. 

Sunday morning came, and at nine o'- 
clock Charles Lindsay made his appearance. 

"I thought you were not coming till eve-

"Our new minister is to preach to-day," 
Kate said on the way. 

-So I understand," returned Lindsay ; 
"and that is one reason why I was anxious 
to be here." 

"Dn you know hire !" 

"I know him pretty well." 

What kind of a man is he !" 
••Well — he is spoken very well of. I

Don't you think it would be very unpleas-

ter. I saw the difficulty. You thought all 
ministers were alike ; and if I had told you 
that I w as 'the minister,' at fir«t, you w ould 
hate been coy and reserved. You would 
not have learned me as 1 am, nor would you 
have opened yoi.r soul to me as you have I 
done. I think I am right." 
"Perhaps you are." 

"I think I may feel sure of it. But now

in law, the term is s'ill retained. If jrnsj 
will give me leave. I will tea^h you law 
and Latin, so thai in the future you may 
not fall into such traps of error." 

Kate smiled; and she was very far from 
wishing to scold any more. Night came 
and ere Kate Proctor »lept again, she had 
concluded to board the minister for life ; 
and so far from making "the house too hot 
to hold him," she kept it so pleasantly 
warm with her deep and ardent love, that 
he seldom left it, save upon those pas- 
torial duties which he wished not to avoid, 
and even then she kept his company when 
she eould ; for the good parishioners said 
that 'twas only half a visit for the minister 
to come without his sweet, gentle wife. 

A Goose Story. — A negro woman, soon 
after having experienced religion, stole a 
goose to make merry with her con sort from 
a neighboring plantation. Of course she 
was whipped, for the good of others as well 
as lierself. Soon after these circumstances 
a communion was to take place in the 
neighborhood, and Dinah prepared to go. 
Her mistress remonstrated with her, and 
mentioned the goose afl'air as a sufficient 
reason for her not to offer herself on such ■ 
holy occasion; to which she replied: " I 
aint gwine to turn my back on my brrsseit 
Massa for no old goose !'" 

Ouk Homes.— What is theireorner stone 
but the virtue of woman, and where does 
social well-being rest but in our homes .' 
Must we not trace all other blessings of civ- 
ilized life to the doors of our dwellings .' 
Are not our hearth-stones guarded by holy 
forms, conjugal, filial, and paternal love, 
the corner-stone of church and state, more 
sacred than either, more necessary than 
both ? Let our temples crumble, and capi- 
tols of state be leveled with the dust, but 
spare our homes. Let no socialist invade 
them with his wild plans of community. 
Man did not invent, and he cannot improve 
or abrogate them. A private shelter to 
cover in two hearts dearer to each other 
than all the world ; high walls to exclude 
the profane eyes of every human being; se- 
clusion enough for children to feel that 
mother is a holy and peculiar name — this 
is home; and this is the birth-place of eve- 
ry secret thought. Here the church and 
state must come for their origin and sup- 
port. Oh! spare our homes! The love we 
experience there gives us our faith in an in- 
finite goodness; the purity and disinterest- 
edness of our home is our foretaste and our 
earnest of a better world. In relations there 
established and fostered do we find through 
life the chief solace and joy of existence. 

How Wt got rid of Moths. — A year 
since we had occasion to store a lot of fur- 
niture, with a considerable amount of wool- 
en garments, carpets, bed-rlothing, &e. As 
the house necessarily used for storing was 
infested with moths and cockroaches, we 
had some fears on that account; but we pro- 
cured a pound and a half of gum camphor, 
and packed all woollen materials in a sin- 
gle close room, with large lumps of the 
ea.nphor, in several places. The room was 
then eloeed up tightly, and left until a few 
days since. On opening it, we found il 
still filled with a strong odor of camph r. 
The lump* of gum whirh were about the 
site of a hen's egg, when put in, had now 
lost about half of their hulk, and not a sin- 
gle thread of any cloth in the room had 
been injured by mo»h or insects. 

One thing surprised ns not a little; the 
ceiling of the room was literally covered 
with thousands of moths, though none 
were found elsewhere. The dollar expen- 
ded in getting a Urg* amount of camphor, 
probably saved us from many dollars' loss, 
since a bit of stair carpet and an old fur 
muff, which were left in another room with 
entirely destroyed.

For Making Liquors, l.ecour's Oils require no 
preparation — oulv pour the Oil into the whiskv and 
fhake well The liquors thus made will have a fine 
natural aroma, n full. rich. oily taste; I beaniiful trans- 
parent color and a fi'ie bead. L»-co .'- Oils exert 
three dis inct properties in converting common whis, 
kv to brandy, gin. ilkc The first property combines 
with and subsides in the form of fioculent par-idea 
ihe whole of the grain oil. lAmvlic Alcohol : The 
whisky is thus deprived • f that peculiar irritating and 
burning taste, and becomes a neutral spirit; the se- 
cond propertv consists in an oily mucillaginous taste 
imparted to the liquor, which renders it mellow, and 
imparts nn appearance ol great age; ihe third prop- 
erty is exhibited in the rich vinous nutty odor that 
is imparted to the liquor, which rendera distinction 
from the genuine brands impossible. 

These Oils ara plit up in quart flasks; each flask 
contains sufficient oil for making three hundred gal- 
lons ot liquor. Full and comprehensive directions 
accompany the bottles. Price, $2 per bottle. 

For sale at the corner of St. Charles and Poydras 

One bottle of each ol these Oils, five in number, 
will be securoly packed and shipped, with bill 'of 
lading, to any part of the country, upon the receipt !

Purchasers are requeated, as a guarantee of good ' 
faith, to furnish us the name of any house in New 
Orleans, and we will ship them a package of the oils.
