"Have you b-^en in this city ever «»!nee?" 

"No. sir. W« ■-. mo bore with niv uncle,

our at rival." 

There osme another long silence, in 
which the lad wis not able to see tho uwr 
chant's eountenauee. But when he diJ 
*c jk at him afrain. then was such a new 
a..d Kinde.rpr^ssionir the » yj* \. '..Ich seal- 
ed almost to devour hi? f«ce, he felt 
aatui-ance in 'tis Le*rt the; Mr. Frazier 
was a g  r i man and would be a friend to 
his mother. 

•Sit (here for a little while." said Mr. 
Frazier, and turning »o his desk, he wsote 
a irief note, in whieli, wirhout permitting 
the lad to t»ee what he was doing, ho enclos- 
ed two or three bank bills. 

"Take this to your mother." be said, 
handiuff the note to the 1-d. 

"You 'll try and get me a place, sir, 
won't you ?" The little boy liftod to him 
an appealing look. 

"Oh. yet. You shall have a good place. 
But stay ; you have not told me where you 

-At No.— 7— Melon street." 

"Very well." Mr. Frazier noted the 
street and number. "And now take that 
note to your mother.' 

The merchant did not resume his news- 
paper after the lad departed. He had lott 
hit interest in its contents. For a time 
he sat with his face so that no one saw its 
expression. If rpoken to on any matter, 
he answered briefly, and with nothing of 
hi6 usual interest in business. The change 
in him was so marked that one o r hie part- 
ners asked him if he were not well. ' Feel 
a little dull," he evasively answered. 

Before his usual time Mr. Frazier left 
his store and went home. Ae he opened 
the door of his dwelling, distressed cries 
and sobbings of a child came with an un- 
pleasant sound upon his ears. He went up

Mr. Frazier sat reading, in his counting' 
room. He was in the mid^t of a piece of in 
teresting news, when a lad came to the 
and said — "Do you want r Hoy, sir?" 

Without lifting his eyes from the paper, 
Mr. Frazier answered - : No;' to the appli- 
cant, and in rather a rough way. 

Before the lad had reached the 6treet, 
conscience had compelled the merchant to 
listen to a rebuking sentence. 

••You might have spoken kindly to the 
poor boy. at least," said conscience. "This 
is an opportunity." 

Mr. Frazier let the paper fall before his 
eyes, and turned to look at the lad. He 
was small — but clean. Tbe merchant tap- 
ped at one of the windows of the counting 
room, aud the boy glanced back over his 
shoulder. A sign from the merchant caus- 
al him to return. 

"What did you say just now?" 

"Do yon want a boy. sir?'' The lad re- 
peate 1 the words he had spoken, besitat- 
v a few m ou'es before. 

Mr Fr trier looked at him with a sudden- 
ly '.wakened interest. He had a f:iir. girl- 
ish f ico dirk brown eyes and hair, and 
though slet'lnr and deli' ft- in appear-iuce. 
stooil erect, with a nnnliness of aspect 
th .; showed him to be ••lready conscious of 
d-ny in the worl 1. Bu* there did] not seom 
to be in-ich of that «tnfT in him that is 
needed for the bittle ( »f life. 

• Tike •  chair sa' 1 Mr Frazier. an in- 
voluntary re-peot for :he lad getting pos- 
sesion of his mind. 

The boy sat lown.with his large, clear 
eyes fixed ^n the merchant s face. 

/ llow old are y."»u ?" 

"I was twelve, sir. lj»st month," replied 
the boy 

• What splendid eyes," said the merchant 
to hi»n«*elf. "And I've seen them before. 
d*rk and lustrous as a woman's." 

Away back in tbe past the thoughts of 
Mr. Fazier went, borne on the light from 
tho«e beautiful eyes; and for some moment* 
he forgot the present in the past. But 

' There is no Mfttatfty for yoor getting ( 
a pUce now, Cher!:.'. We shall go back 
UD Eugland " 

'Oh, mo'her. ' Tbe boy's face way all | 
aglow with twahf i 

"Here is a from a gentleman in 
New Yoek, who s'.ys that he is directed by 
you» uncle V'iltoo to pay our passage to 
i.:i_'!:. .J if we wi.i return. God is good, 
■j Ida. Let us bo thankful." 

Caa^les now d r ew from his pocket the 
note which Mr. Frazier had giveuhim.and 
handed it to his mother. 

"What it this?" she asked. 

"The gentleman who promised to get me 
a place told me to give it to you." 

The woman broke the seal. There *rere 
three bank bills, of ten dollars each enclos- 
ed, and this brief sentence written on a sheet 
of paper: 

"God sent your son to a true friend. — 
Take courage Let him come to me to- 
morrow." * 

"Who gave you this?" she asked, her 
pale faced" growing warm with sudden ex- 

"A gentleman. But I don't know who 
he was. I went into a great many stores 
to ask if they didn't want a boy, and at last 
came to the one where the gentleman was 
who sent you a letter. He 6poke roughly 
to me at first, and then called me back and 
asked me who I was. and about my mother. 
I told him your name, and how father had 
died, and sou were sick. Then he satagood 
while and didn't say anything , and then 
wrote the note, and he told me be would 
get me a place. He was a kind looking 
man, if he did 6peak roughly at first." 

i "Wl y, auntie! wb »r did TOl come in?" 

' Just now. as you were making known 
' to George that terrible 'fact.' And I am 
, aexloajsi to hear all about it myself." 
i -Well. I'il tell you!" and down went the 
1 bonnet ond cloui on the sofa. 'It's Alice 
( Heston. the low scholni ; her father bought 
rhe «tone hou*e undwr tbe bill, *nd moved

' Yes. I re'mcmbf r; but why do you think 
j Altec so disagreeable?" 
I 'Oh, she putt m so'" 

Pu*s o„! what does she put on?" 
"Feathers, and rilks, and fashior.: and 
flummery!" interrupted Georgo, laugh- 

'But that isn't what I meant! She 
puts or. such air*, auntie ! Why, it's per- 
fectly ridiculous the way she acts! I don't 
believe there is a girl in school who likes 


"Is she unkind, or unfriendly, of sel- 

• Why. no, ma'am; she's kind and friend- 
ly enough, in her way; but then, who can 
endure such a way? such patronizing aira! 
and such condescending smiles! and such 
a style of talking, a6 if she had been study- 
ing the dictionary all her life, and thought 
she knew more than all the rest of us to- 
gether! She isn't at all like the other 
girls ! Every thing she does and says is 
all affectation, and that's just what I can't 

Ada stopped to take breath; while George 
laughed heartily at her earnestness. Aunt 
Julia sat as if thinking, for a few momenta, 
and then said quietly, "I think there is a 
one kind of putting on which Ada herself 
needs to learn and to practice; something 
which, if she herself would remember to 
put on at all times, would make her school- 
mate, Alice, seem much less disagreeable." 


"Why, auntie, I don't understand?" 

"Can you help her any, George ?"

tbeir startlingt wildness and impressive 
loneliness. Life appears hrei.thed in;o the 
inanimate. Men seem bound to their fel- 
lows at a distance by "loser lie:. The 
newspaper serves as i ."•uti^Uo ligament to 
connect tbe most remote in feeling end 
opinion. Tbe desires and actions, thoughts 
and of tbe multitude are commu- 
nicated through this medium. By thus in- 
terchanging views, men's ideas become more 
liberal— their mental visions embrace a 
wider range of observation. Tho edges o  
inquiry and investigation are sharpened. — 
New enterprises are set on foot. Commerce 
is invigorated, and every branch of indus- 
try receives an impetus. Pleasure is cot 
only thus diffused among all classes, but 
profit, actual profit, that which may be 
reckoned in dollars and cents. The influ- 
ence of a newspaper, in a new settlement, 
is not exaggerated nor over estimated. — 
Instances fully corroborating all that haa 
been here said, are to be found in abun- 
dance. Potent as is the press in the most 
highly refined and prosperous portious of 
tha globe, it is likewise so on tne edgj of 
the desert, and, accompanying tbe border- 
er's gun and the engineer's axe, sows the 
seeds of civilization in tbe very midst of 
uncultivated nature. 

To John Bradford belongs the great 
honor of having "set up" the first printing 1 
office and newspaper in the State (then 
District) of Kentucky. Could we, upon 
one of these bright May days, transfer our- 
selves into the by-gone days of '87, and 
peep upon his precinoU, how novel would 
the scene appear to eyes accustomed to the 
wonderful improvements in tho "art pre- 
■ervative of arts !" In the goodly town of 
Lexington, beside an ill defined road, call-

a house here and there, site the little eabin

The Rev. Henry Wa»d Beeoher, in a re- 
cent discourse, thus draws a picture of that 
largo class of men who delight in tempting 
to ruin the innocent and unsuspecting ; 

|t is not the liidian alone who loves to 
carry the scalps which he takes in rattle ; 
there are thousands of beings, male and fe- 
male, who love to carry in sight the num- 
ber of the victims they have seduced or 
corrupted, to count them over and boast of 
thdir crime. There are men who love to 
teach the young salacious vices, and seduces 
them into e*il compliances, to put the leaven 
of perdition into tneir souls, and wait till it 
begins to leaven the whole lump. They 
seem to have a horrible gloat of pleasure 
in doing this. They resist all the efforts 
of their victim to break away, and if he 
does get away they pull him down again— 
and God lets such men live ! 

Did you ever see a spider spinning his 
web in the corner? With what delioacy of 
hit loom does he spin all the web! how it 
shines in tbe sun ! and who has spun it all 
right; and after spinning it, be makes him- 
self a little dark hole, in which ho goes 
back and lies in wait for a singing fly that 
has surveyed and philosophized on the uni- 
verse ; he looks upon the web, and the in- 
stant he touches it how the spider rushes 
out to seize him ! and if he be a small in- 


clooe to his. 

• Jane," said Mr. Frazier, looking at tbe 
nurse and speaking with some sternness of 

-Why is Maggie crying in this manner?" 
The girl was not excited but pale. 
"She has been naughty," was her an- 

• No. pa ! I ain't been naughty," said the 

child, indignantly. I didn't want to stay 
here all alone, and she pinched me and slap- 
ped me so hard. Oh, pa! ' And the child's 
wail rang out again, and she clung to his 
neck, sobbing. 

"Has sbe ev«.r pinched and slapped you 
before?' asked the father. 

' She does it most every day," answered 
the little girl. 

• Why hav'nt you told me?" 

• She aaid she d throw me out of the win- 
; dow if I told ! Oh, dear ! Don.t let her do 
■ it, papa ! ' 

"It's a lie r exclamedthe nurse, passion- 

j ' Just look at my poor leg. papa. " The 
| child said this in a hushed whisper, with 
her lips olose to her father's ears. 
J Mr. Frazier sat down, and bearing the 
I child's leg to the hip, saw that it was cover- 
I ed with blue and green spots ; all above 
the knee there were not less than a dozen 
of those distinguished marks. He exam- 
ined the other leg, and found it in the same 

Mr Frazier loved that child with a deep 
tenderness. She was his all to love. Her 
mother, between whom and himself there 
had never been any sympathy, died two 
years before, and since that time, his pre- 
vious darling — the apple of his eye — had 
been left to the tender mercie6 of hired 
nurses, over whose conduct it was impossi- 
ble for him to have any right observation. 
He had often feared that Maggie was ne- 

aect and a large spider, he will bits hia 
and roll him up in the web ; or if he bo a

"Oh, mother ! it's the

when he came back into the present again, glected— often troubled himself on her ac- l ast — "a ten

"Ask him to come up, my son," she said, 
and Charles went down stairs again. 

A man's firm tread approached tbe door. 
It was opened, and the boy's mother and 
the boy's new-found friend looked into 
each other's f.iccs. 

"Oh, Edward!" fell from her lips in'a 
quick surprised voice, and she started from 
her chair and stood strongly agitated be- 
fore him. He advanced, not speaking un- 
till he had taken her hand. 

"Florence! I never thought to see you 
! thus." be said in a calm, kind, evenly 
modulated voice, but her ear* were finely 
enough chorded to preccivo the deep emo- 
tion that lay beneath. He said it looking 
down into the dark, soft, tender, brown 
eyes. But I think there is a providence 
in our meeting." he added. 

They sat down and talked long togeth- 
er — talked over the things gone by, and of 
the causes that seperated them, while their 
hearts beat only for each other — of tho 
weary years that had passed for both of 
them since then — of the actual present in 
there lives.

The Ld's voice shook a little, aud his 

Mr. Frazier had already forgotten the 
point of interest in the news after which 
his mind was seschinf when the boy in- 
ten-opted him. "I don't want a lad myself,

What need have these brave settlers of 
types and ink and paper ? Are there not 
lessons full of wisdom to be found in their 
daily pathways leading them up to nature's 
God? And why disturb their calm sereni-

Why breathe upon them the hoarse mur- 
murs of a contentions world ? But within 
that cabin, shaded by so many'huge oaks, 
is the germ of Kentucky newspaper litera- 
ture. In a corner stands the press, entirely 
wooden, cumbersome, and uncouth. At 
a window, or rather an aperture between 
the logs, are a jew eases of type ; while in 
typographic confusion, the other imple- 
ments are strewn about. Bradford is seated

gaping multitude. Strange comments were 
made on this literary phenomenon, and

The Five Daughters. — A gentleman 
had five daughters, all of whom he brought 
up to some useful and respectable occupa- 
tion of life. These daughters married one 
after the other, with tho consent of their 
father. The first married a gentleman by 
the name of Poor; the second a Mr Little; 
tbe third a Mr. Short ; tho forth a Mr. 
Brown ; and the fifth s Mr. Hogg. At 
the wedding of the latter her sisters, with 
the^r husbands, were present. After the 
cerimonies of the wedding were over the old 
gentleman said to his guests : "I have taken 
great pains to educate my five daughters 
that they may act well their parte in life ; 
and from their advantages and improve-

to my family ; and now I find that all my

Ut #keltin Sentinel, 





Thi* pleasant June morning, while all 
nature ferns u th enchanting beauty, while 
the deiic]uu«fj,nng-tuae would invite us to 
•eek its pleaaant grove*, and while the 
birds go singing around the meadowi, wc 
arc inclined to go forth, to pluck bright 
flower, and listen to natures mild sweet mel- 
ody. But before us looms up in majestic 
proportions, the stern dictates of duty and 
of responsibility. We have a duty to per- 
form, a destiny to accomplish, and the work 
that invites us is of such a character as to 
command our active energies and our 
ceaseless vigilance. Appreciating the 
weighty responsibility devolving upon 
those who control and wield the Press, we 
may well fear and tremble at our first step 
into theEditon 1 Sanctum, knowing that 
care and diligence is required to conduct 
aright a journal, whose position is to be 
pained by patient toil and unremitting ac- 
tion. To us the position is new, untried 
and susceptible of peril. Looking back 
to the many melancholy failures, that mark 
the history of such undertakings as this, we 
may well take heed to our way§, and reflect 
carefully at every step. In beginning we 
ci*^:reto make r.o promises, that we can 
not fulfil, merely stating that Duty, shall 
ever guide us in all our actions, and all we 
ask is charity. 

We have need in all our intercourse with 
society, to brinp into practice this grace, 
that places a vail over man's frailties and 
hopes for better things. Even good men- 
men wiiose lives are devoted to God's service 
are fallible and erring, and frequently we 
need to look at them with the kindly glance 
of pardon, and drop the tear of sympathy 
upon their faults. 

How hard, how inconsistent too, with 
Christianity is the principle, that because a 
brother, steps slowly and falteringly up the 
rounds, how hard, we say to push him 
down. Rather if he haltr, give him the 
helping hand, that he may ascend the heights, 
where christian love and charity is en- 
throned. We are called in the discharge 
of all life's duties to exeroisf charity, *o our 
men, and moreover, to ask charity.

perience in life, many charminp episodes

life, or of human nature in its various char- 
acters, will awaken a hearty interest. — 
Soldiers, let us hear from you. 

The gallantry of the Sentinel would be

We know the peoplr of Shelby. Their 
generosity, intelligence and refinement, are 
matters of fact. We ran appeal confidently, 
cheerfully and boldly to them to five their 
influence and aid to our undcrukinp. We 
will ever be found ad vocating those interests 
that tend to the prosperity of the people, 
and will resist all encroachments upon their 
rights and privileges as citizens. 

And now with gratitude to God for his 
goodness in granting some success to our 
undertaking, and with words of greeting to 
our friends, and with well wishes to every 
home in which wc enter, we close our 

Gt to Work. — Do the good people cf 
Shelby knaw they ere charged with old fo- 
gyism ? They are thus carped, and we 
ft ir that to some extent they merit the re- 
proach. Look at the facts aieu of Shelby, 
•roui-e from your Rip Van Winkle slum- 
bers and gro to work. In no depreciating 
or fault finoinp 3i-ir:t would we wiite of our 
uative county, but to excite an interest in 
the general welfare of the community, do 
we call attention to fa'-ts of vital impor- 

As a couuty, from want of enterprise t»nd 
energy, Shelby has lost thousands and thou- 
sands of dollars, and has been deprived of 
improvements which to other counties 
have beon sources of wealth. We refer to 
the railroads that have been projected and 
talked of but never completed. With prop- 
er efforts we could years ago. have had rail- 
road communication with great commercial 
centers, and at th is time chould bo reaping 
the reward of energy in large dividends 
and in the increased conveniences of travel. 

But our wealthy citizens have prefered 
investing their money in wild Western 
lands, or in wild gold speculation, which is 
worse, f inking oil wells and their money in 
them; any thing however hazardons. rather 
than build at their own doors an enterprise 
of untold value. Thus they have aided in 
increasing the value of land in other state.-, 
havo assisted enterprises in other counties 
while Shelby Uas been neglected. 

A spirit of home enterprise baa at last 
arisen in the minds of the people, and we 
conjure them to take advantage of it. and 
with well directed efforts to work for the 
completion of the Shelby Railroad. We 
believe the people are in earnest and will 
delay no longer. Men of energy and influ- 
ence laboring in the enterprise. — men 
who will permit no obsticle to retard their 
progress. Let us na longer hear the stig- 
ma of halting, hesitating old fbgyisni, but 
prove that we cau and will have a railroad. 
In behalf of the undertaking we extend a 
cordial invitation for discussion of the sub- 
ject through the columns of our paper, 
while we will use our influence to arouse 
the people to a sense of its importance. 

To Contributors.— Sa-o, has our 

thanks for his article. It possesses & pc * 
culiar interest to us from the fact of its be- 
ing the first Communication totho Sentinel. 
Aside from this the article is an excellent 
one and wil! well repay perusal. u Sago" 
I let us hear from you often, 

To be Enlarged.— It is our intention 
to enlarge the Sentinel, just as soon as the 
increased subscription list, will justify the 
additional expencc. We ppeal to our 
friends i very where, to procure us subscri- 
bers sufficient to warrant the outlay. Let 
all persons who receives a copy of this pa- 
per, use a little effort iu obtaining the names 
of their friends, as subscribers. It will be 
our aim to publish a paper acceptable to all 
classes; & paper which all can aid by their 
efforts, heartily and cheerfully given. 

We desire to enlarge, that we may «!o 
justice to our talented contributors, while 
we. at the same time, may afford the editori- 
al arm full swing. Roll in tha names, then, 
and lot ua send forth a sheet unequalled in

As a reporter of the worlds actions, we 
desire to make the Sentinel, a superior 
Family News-paper, displaying with intel- 
igent skill and well arranged fitness, the 
events of life that go to make up history. 
All that is attractive in art and science, all 
that is beautiful in nature, or grand and 
worthy in history, will be subject to our 
range. All that serves to raise man to 
dignity and elevate humanity to honor, all 
these shall adorn our columns. 

Our course will be strictly independent of 
sectarian or partizan attachments, free to 
critiriu, condemn or approve any and all 
measures that may come up for ducuuion. 
We wiiralways uphold in political, religious 
and the various affairs of life, principles 
true and tried, — principles conservative in 
tendency and safe at all times. 

To the. people, we would respectfully 
but earnestly, submit our claims to support 
and influence. We know, that in com- 
mencing the Shelby Sentinel, we are sup- 
plying a want long felt. And we are also 
sure that the character we propose to give 
to oi:r paper, will eventually meet the ap- 
probation of the people of 8helby, as well 
as the praise of the citizens of the State.— 
We intend the Sentinel shall be an ener-

To attain this end we extend an invitation,

after church and proceeded to the house of 
a negro man in Frank tfa f'nnnty, namod 
Reuben, where also lived a MgN man named 
Isaac Wilson, who had been a Federal 
Soldier: they demanded admittance which 
was denied. The door was then broken 
down by the young meu and three or four

which Mr. .lames Carico wns shot and in-

For the Shelby Sentienl. 


On the last Saturday in April, there was 
a meeting of the stockholder* of the Shel- 
by Rail Road Company, to consider the 
propriety of making another effort to com- 
plete the road. 

The unanimous opinion was, that the 
road was of vital importance to the county, 
and that a final effort should be made to 
finish the work commenced nearly fifteen 
years ago. 

On the first Tueaday in May, an election 
of Directors was held, and an entire new 
Board elected, with the exception of A. R. 
Scott Esq. It was thought absolutely essen- 
tial that at least one member of the old 
Board should be retained, who was famil- 
iar with the affairs of the Company. We 
understand however that the former Board 
had unanimously declared in favor of the 
election of an entire new Board. The re- 
sult of the election was no reflection upon 
their management of the affairs of the Com- 
pany. Their duties have been ardous, their 
labor unceasing, and the ultimate comple- 
tion of the Road will be due to their indo- 
mitable perseverance. 

The new Board are J. D. Taggert Prest.

The customers of a certain cooper caus-

We learn from the 
that the thrifty and 
wheat and grass which at present look un 
usually strong, are threatened with the rav- 
ages of insects. The army worm, the most 
destructive of insects, and a most unwel- 
come visitor to the farmer, has made its 
appearance in some parts of Southeast Miss- 
ouri. In some parts of Cape Giradcau 
county they move in such myriads that the 
people actually use brooms to sweep them 
from their doors. In some part* of Ten- 
, also, the cut-worm and the army- 
have appeared together, and are de- 


I am sorry I cannot give the author of 
that profound remark, but its obvious 
truth will save Upfront oblivion, and it 
will be repeated in some shape or other as 

long as there are two people living. It is 
just, as necessary that there should be a 
gTeat many very different kinds of people 
in the world, as it is that there should he 
the different ingredients mixed together to 
make a jjrood glass of punch. 

In fact, I think, without going further 
for a simile, we may compare the world to 
a huge punch bowl, and men and women 
are the various ingredients that are thrown 

in to mingle and neutralize each other,— 
each -iving their peculiar qualities to the 
whole; which, being thoronghly stirred, 
resolves itself into the grandest punch that 
ever gave Jove the headache. 

There are a great many people that are 
sweet like refined loaf-sugar, and if they 
happen to have a little dash of originality 
to flavor them, like the rose, lemon or va- 
nilla, in the confectionary, are really de- 
lightful, others again, too sweet. Be in 
their society a short time, and you feel as 
though you had been eating golden syrup 
by the spoonful. Now, just think of it. 
what a stupid old world this would ba. if 
every body was sweet, and that will imme- 
diately show you that some people were 
made for the express purpose of neutral- 
izing these sweet ones, and so bring about 
a more even state of affairs. Society needs 
acid as much as punch or lemonad^, and 
there is no scarcity, for we needn't go very 
far to find all grades — lemon, 
cream of tartar and tartaric acid. 

To counteract all these, beside the st 
I have mentioned, we have mental 
sia and moral salcratus — I wish I knew 
just where to get some. I know a person 
that needs a dose very badly, but I will 
talk to him and perhaps that will have the 
same effect, or at least taste as badly. As 
for spirits, we have an unlimited supply. 
For champaign, we have sensation preach- 
ers, new lights in religion that bubble and 
sparkle for a week. Who would drink 
dead champaigne? Again, we have the rare 
old wines that grow more mellow and de- 
licious with their age. While yet in a 
crude state they are buried away down in 
the vaulted cellar, to lie for years and 
years, till finally, at some uncommon ro- 
joicing, they are unearthed and brought 
forth— the bottles wearing their dingy 
drapery of mould and cobwebs, like a 
badge of honor, to grace the festive board. 
Do you know what people they represent? 
Those who live after they are dead. — 
Thoso who, in their own day and genera- 
tion were scarcely, if any known. Who 
coutained all the elements of greatness, 
power and genius, but in their undeveloped 
state we failed to recognise them, and so, 
after gaining all they could from the vin- 
tage of the world, they were buried. But 
after the year? roll on, how brightly they 
come forth, how truly they live among us. 
Nor are we deficient in our human ale, 
porter, and lager, that are so bitter to the 
taste, but which physicians say are good 
for the constitution. They are the people 
that ' mean well." that give you bushels 
of good advice "for your own good,'' and 
when they say they are going to talk to 
you as they would to a brother or sister, 
you know they are going to be intensely 
disagreeable. And there are a few cases 
in existence of pure, unadulterated, fourth 
proof brandy; but so far, they are hardly 
worth mentioning, besides they are contra- 
band, being smuggled through the Custom 
House without paying taxes. We don't 
know exactly where to find them, but when 
found make a note of it. 

Yes, this must be a jolly world, for it is 
never out of spirits ; (that was originally 
intended for a joke, but not having time to 
go round and explain it, I must insert it 
as ordinary matter. No one is obliged to 

Let me see, docs our punch require any 
thing else? If it does I am sure its simil- 
itude will not be wanting. 

Yes, I forgot the hot water— that's very 
important, but the supply exceeds the de- 
mand. Now don't ask me to tell which 
class keeps the rest in hot water; it is 
really as much as my life is worth. I 
should be hung with a lace string or stab- 
bed with a hair pin, and run out of town 
with calves just tilting at me. So you see 
that no individual is perfect in himself, 
and all have more or less faults — princi- 
pally more. Yet, take the world as a whole, 
it averages a pretty full bowl of punch, 


Man Killed — We learn that on Mon- 
day, a young man named Horace With- 
erspoon was on a frolic in Lawrenceburg. 
Mr. Frank Kington, the town Marshal, at- 
tempted to pacify him when an altycation 
ensued, and Witherspoon drew a pistol and 
shot and killed Kington. Witherspoon 
was arrested.

I stood before the beautiful creations which

My boyhood was passed in dreams. I 
n#»ver knew a father; and my mother was 
cue of the # most indulgent of widowed par- 
ents, who have but one object of interest in 
life. I was a vihionary lad. which fbe could 
well afford to forgive, for she was the dreara- 
itot of all visionaries herself. Onct t he took 
me to the studio of a friend, who had some 
business relations with her. The statuef- I 
saw there was perfectly wonderful to me. 
I  aw them in my dream that night and for 
uweek afterwards. Sometimes the forms I 
had t-een th« re ranged themselves before 
me. when alone, even in my waking hours ; 
and I talked to them ah we talk to human 

I was wild to visit the studio again ; and 
then I i«aw him completing a model from 
wet clay. The mystery whs solved, but the 
intereM was deepened, not decreased. I 
frequented the place until he begged my 
mother to take me away. It was no fit 
place, he said, for a child like me— imagi- 
native. : ti c- n i . absorbed in such fancies as 
hi- ait ksjggeaUd. She k»-pt me at home 
alter thi . and the result wus that I prew 
rJitaj tm4 ■ te, t:nd care!  rr nothing e\?o

had watched him too lor.,: and attentively 
n. t to hove emit idea of the process. 

I p ro em ed fom" clay and ^anied it to 
■f pl .vro-,nj in the attic. My mother's 
only s-'i vaut wondered p| the numher of 
cloth.- wr-ich I begged of her incersantly . 
r.r;-l ( ne ilay she fri^h-cneil my mo'lier b« 
rnnnii g h.tstily down from my room, which 
ski h;.d been Sf ;ircliing for mysteriously 
lost towel*, which I bed purloined from the 
kitchen   loset. t-he had neen a ghost, she 
declared, in Master Leonard s room — a rei.l 
ghost. Shcshiiekcd all the way down, giv- 
ing the impression that she had injured ber 
self 6everly. My mother had the good 
sense and courage to investigate the room 
ot once, and was surprised to find a very 
tolerable figure of a child, from which I 
had that morning removed the wrappings. 
It was standing on a pedestal of about three 
feet in height, and Mary had mistaken it 
for a tall skeleton form. 

That night I heard my mother go up- 
stairs after I was in bed. and a man's foot- 
steps accompanied hers. Going down some 
time alterwards. I heard her friend, the 
-culptor s voice. He was saying. "Very 
extraordinary, certainly for a child nine 
years old. Mrs. Eustace, you must let him 
come again to me 
of him.' 

down the barriers that might e-iist between 
strangers : and when I at length rcpait ed 
' my speech, her attention seemed nveij( i 
by the tale of grief whi^h poured iron. 
my lips. 1 felt that I could ?peak to hei 
as a long tried. dcarlv-lo\ed friend, so m- 
timately did she come into my tfcoagl 
and experiences; and the words of consola- 
tion which she spoke were not those stere- 
otype, proverbial ones that repei and annoy 
every true mourner. 

It was but a few rhoments th:.t she linger- 
ed near me ; but when she departed she had 
left, not a shadow, but a sur.lipht over my 
path. Who was she? Should i ever see 
her agsin? These were questions tLat 
lorced themselves upon BO when she bad 
gone. Something of stateline.-s I fancied i 
had detected, as of one born of r^nk. and 
with noble blood in her veins. Hat her 
garb was such as the simplest eotfcsfO mai- 
den might were, and her hair wore DO or- 
nament save its own beautiful arid glossy 
curls, that hung free and unlettered as her 
dress hung about her figure 

Why follow minutely this talc of love? 
, Another and another interview, and then 
we both knew that, in iitc or death, in joy 
or sorrow, it: prosperous or adverse hours, 
each would be to the other a second sell, 
i Neither had ever usked a question of the 
other in regard to name, lineage, rank or 
1 possessions. It was the old story of trust- 
ing, confiding love — unbouyht. unsold. — 
Each w:ts all the world to each : ;.nd the 
contract that bound our hearts together 
was scaled by no senseless parchment, bui 
by a single kiss., pure and holy in its trtith 
nod ler\or. 

Theie was as yet no woid of marriage. 
I judged thnt Clcnjcuee might be poor. — 
Iter drese of simple grey was not at all 
differing from the lowest Florentine mai- 
den, except that it was even more -tudiously 
plain. !t hung tro*H her neck, with noth- 
ing but a simple zone the folds 
round her waist, and fastened by a tiny 
steel clasp. But what cared I for 
or poverty in her who, it heaven permitted 
us to joiu our l«tes together, would he the 
greatest treasure ever bestowed on man! 

I would have gladly presented Ciewence 
to my mother, but the lormer w ished to de- 
lay it lor a season, and I v. illir.uiy acceded 
i to her request that no one should know of 
our acquaintance at present. I wee recall- 
; ed from this dream of bliss by my mother, 
j One day when 1 had lingered awuy longer 
i than usual, the said to me, '-Leonard, you 
have mourned long and faithfully for your 
friend. I do not grucge you the hours 
thus devoted to grief that honors alike you 
and him; but there are other duties MPlit- 
ing you, and you must rbc up. i-trong and 
brave, to mte- them." 

How I longed to tell her of Clemenee. 
but I would not give way to the longing, as 
he had wished it otherwise.

At last there had been so many partings 
that there were no children left, and only 
the traveller, the gentleman, and the lady

now the wood was yellow, and now brown,
