Georse Jackson was a vounsr man of 1 - 1 11 11? promise, ana was so cousiuercu uy an in his native town, lie was a lawcr in pro fession, aud was gradually, laying the foundation for a strou": and steady prac tice. ,, r'J . . ... c had one s;rcat drawback: to con tend ajrainst, however, lie was a man of a strona:. uuretuous nature, and had inherited with it a fondness for dissipa tion. In his younaer da-s. and until he commenced the practice of his profession, he had led a wild life, and had been re garded a a hopeless case. Upon receiv ing his certificate lie had suddenly as tonished his friends by an abrubt discon tinuancc of his old habits, and a steady application to his - business. Yet no one knew what a struggle it cost- him to do so. No onz knew the meutal agony he endured in trying to cast off the temptation which constantly haunted him, and sousrht to enst him down from the position ho had reached It was, with him, a continual effort ; for in the society in which he moved, not day paseeu that lie did not experience a temptation to abondon his resolution, and iudu'.ge "just once" fn tho dangerous pleasure. His legal friends were by no means so strict in their habits, and they frequently urged him to join in a friendly glass ; and he scarcely attended an en tertainment that he was not offered wine. All these offers were quietly and courte ously refused; but sometimes the 3oung man felt that the effort woukPsnap his heart strings. lie made the struggle bravely though. lie firmly resolved never to taste intoxicating liquoi3,for ho Knew liimsclt well enough to be .assured that his first glass would only lead to another, and the old thirst for liquor once aroused, he could not tell where it would end. Thus matters stood when this story opens. Mr. Jackson feeling - that he was on the road to success, and that prudence and energy Cwould certainly bring him that - blcsiiing j- thought - it about - time that he should take a wife. He believed 4hat he had arrived at years of discretion, and was capable of making a judicious' se lection, aud ho ended this matter by re solving to settle" this question" as soon as he hod the opportunity. Iu the town m which he was residing were two young women, who had long divided the admiration of the gallants., One" wag aTaeautiful.brilliaat creatine, with glorious black, eyes, - and tresses of the same hue.-" She was,- by many, con sidered the belie . of tho town and, 'in deed it ditf peem -hjird ;to lied a more beautiful woman than Sarah Carlyle. OtherSj-however. gave the preference to Lucy Lane, a quiet, modest little thing, whose exquisitely sweet face seemed to have stepped out from one of Raphael's pictures, r ,b;w m.; i ,?f,t:-;.v ;u'.s Mr,, Jackson had known both Jadies for some time, but as he had not until recently considered himself,, a,"marrying man, he haa regarded them simply as ordinary acquaintances. Like others, he had been perplexed in his efforts to de cide whuh was the more beautiful. At the' first glance, he invariably: awarded the palm to Miss Carlyle : but tbesmht of Lucy Lane's sweet face would scatter his conclusions to the J winds, and - he would feel irresistibly drawn by the . la ter. ' -J ' " , . When ho made nrr hismind Jfo hunt med:ately to the two beauties, and he re solved, if he found their other qualities such as he hoped, to try and win tho one le loved best for his wife; to tell tne truth the young man was half iu love with both, but with a growing preference for Lucy. IJo wapted a wife for some thing more than mere bcautv, and he could not help believjug that he would find what lie desired more surely in JMiss Lane than in Miss Carlyle. A favora ble opportunity soon presented itself to decide the question. Miss Calylc felt flattered by the atten tion of one who bade so fair to achieve istinction, and resolved to win him if the powers of facination could do so. - On her twentv-lourth birth day she gave an entertainment, wincn surpassca anything the town had ever witnessed. ueorjre Jackson was there, cue. was radiantly beautiful, and the voung mar. had half determined to address her be fore the evening was over. When the guests went into the supper- room, Mr Jackson louuu liimsclt be tween-the two beauties. Some one pro posed the health of the fair hostcsg, and all but the young man drained their lasses to the bottom. He did not drink. Miss Cailylc noticed this, and she said to him in surprise : 'Is it possible that you refuse to drink my health, Mr. Jackson ?" "Pardon me, he said calmly, "you know that I never drink wine." 'But this once will not make any difference," sha urged sin I ngly. 'I am sorry to refuse you," he said, "but I must do so. I resolved five years ago not to taste any intoxicating liquors. 1 might do myself great harm by acced ing to your request. 'I am suro you - cannot do wrong to drink one glass, and that to my health," she said as sweetly as before. " bhe saw .Lucy .Lane watching them calmly, and she meant to show that young lady now greatly sue bad the young lawyer in her power. But for this she would have accepted his excuse, and ceased t) urge him. Miss Lane's face flushed as she heard the young temptress speech, and involuntarily she gazed at Jackson, as if awaiting his answer. . 'Aliss Uarlyie, said tho young man with evident embarrassment, 1 beg you will not urge me in this matter. I have made a solemn resolution to abstaiu from all kinds of liquors. I consider my hon or involved in tins resolve, and L am suro 3 0U would not hav3 me prove false to it." ' "Xou win not do so by obliging me mis once, persisted tne beauty, it is not fair for you alone, to refuse to drink my health. I am really offended with you. I don't sec why you should refuse to gratify me only tor once. "To bo emded with you," speaking slowly, while his face flushed painfully, "I am afraid to do so. You remember the life I led five years ago. I am afraid that one single departure from tho path that I have marked out for myself might drag me back to it." Turning his head for a moment, he saw Miss Lane standing by him, and he knew from the look of sympathy which her lace wore, that she had heard the. conver sation. Circumstantial Evidence Story. - Interesting The Atlanta, Georgia, Iniclliijenccr re lates as follows : ; In the recent trial of the parties charged with the murder of Captain J. F. Gruber, Mr. Tullv, one of the counsel for the defense, narrated the following theory : The whole case was made up of cir cumstantial evidence of the loosest charac ter and to illustrate how guardedly even the best and strongest circumstantial evi dence must be taken, he referred to a trial that took place in this fory court about thirty years ago. Judge Canongo then presided in the court, and 31 r. Muzurean was the Attor ney General. There then lived on the bayou road a man about 25 or SO years old. lie was not au educated nor a wealthy iran but he was honest and had , "What shall I do," he asked her al most unconsciously. "You must decide for yourself," she answered quietly, "but I would die before I would abandon such a resolu tion." ' . V S either saw the angry flash that dart ed trom luiss Carlyle s eyes. She con trolled herself, however, and said care lessly : shall urge you no more. Mr Jackson, and I am sorry you should be so much afraid to pay me so simple a compliment.'.' She bowed and passed to another por tiou of the room, thinking that theyoung man, in order to avoid offending herwouiu finally yield. He did' not and finally she saw him leave the house. Ho went away with the matrimonial question finally settled. A woman who would urge him as she had done, to violate such a resolution, was not the person for a wife. Lucy Lane's simple reply decided his doubts in her favor, and cho next day that young lady received a formal offer of. his hand and heart, which she promptly accepted. They were married and never afterwards did Mr. Jackson have cause to regret Miss Carlyle's conduct toward him, for it gained him a wife. it. rn4 lia 1 fr Having had a limb broken Sir. and Mrs. George Washington have a Bit ot a Spat. 1.1 TT ie was very murm in ncaun. 11c maue ns livelihood by going to the Bayou bt. John cTv-ry evening and catchingfisli t isell u the market next morniug. One moon- lighteveniug while sittiug on the bank of the bayou, fishing as usual, he saw a lady dressed in white in company with a gen tleman, walking on the road beside the bayou. They were quarreling as they passed him, and his attention was attract ed by hearing them quarrel. Alter they passed he resumed his ush-and-waitcd until he had caught his usual supply, lie tl.cn started home with his b.isket. As he reached the place kuown as the "Coquet" ho heard a loud cry, and soon after a feeble , cry. Ad vancing iu the direction of the sound, he saw a woman in a white gown lying on the pavement, and coming to the woman he perceived that a dagger had been stabbed into her bosom. Thinking to relieve her. he took the dagger by the handle and drew it out. As he did so, 3 watchman grasped mm. itie wouiau was killed. Tho poor fisherman was tried for the murder. The case was made out clearly against him. He had been detected in the very act, bending over the body of the deceased with the weapon iu his hand, lie was convicted, and was hung at Congo square. About six nioutiis alter, a trial A nice little story is told of G en. Wash ington by Parton, which will be fresh to many of our readers, and which show him "to wives in the light of a model husband : The Gcneval and his wife lived happily together, but it is evident that, like most heiresses, she was a little exacting and it is highly probable that the great Wash ington was sometimes favored with a curtain lecture. The celebrated author ess Miss Bremer relates thatka gentleman once slept at Mount Vernon in the room next occupied by the master and mistress of the mansion, and when all the inmates were in bed "and the house was still he overheard, through tho thin partition, the voice of Mrs. Washington. He could not but listen, it was a curtain . lecture, which she was giving her lord. Ho had done something during the day which ought to have been dono differcutly, and she was giving him her opinions in some what animated and quite decided tones. The great man Tstened in silence till ehe had done, and then, without a remark upon the subject ou hand, he said : "Now, good sleep to you, my dear." It is plain the General believed that "it takes two to quarrel."

"No," ho answered, "that is not the reason. 1 saw the fisherman hung for the murder of my wife. Ho did not do it. I killed her mvself. from jealousy." The Judge sat petrified. The man made for tho door, escaped and has not been heard of since. A Wreck. George Alfred Townsend writes to the Cincinnati Gazette, in a let ter descriptive of the incidents t of a sea voyage, the following item of interesting personal intelligence But the ceutral figure of the ship is an old, paralytic man in whose lost and struggling intelligence you sec reminis cences o. long command, it is Coniman der Hartstein, who was. an officer of the United States Navy thirty-three years When the war began, his instincts, though a South Carolinian, Were all for fhA Orlvernment. But his wealthy wife influenced him first to passiveness, to rebellion, tie nave un his commis sion, which was his history, and, like a lost energy, wandered to and fro in Charleston, full of dark premonitions of the success of tho great Government he had betrayed. When the fire was opened upon Sumter he strolled in the same abstract way to Fort Moultrie, and looked at faithful old castle. There was no enthu- liomc more ; have been on the sea and un der it and in it; have been laughed at, shot at, quarreled at, praised, blamed, abused ; have been blown at, and been blowed up; have had. much aud had litile so much as to enjoy nothing, so little that I would have enjoyed a crust of bread, because - the ship went to the bottoia with everything in it, leaving me to float to a sand bank ; and then, again, I have wandered over the earth, and un der it and through it, its caves and its dungeons, and its darkness : after stalag mites and stalactites ; specimens of black rocks, and white ones, blue stones and grey : lived for months on desert islands, just for the purpose of picking up new. shells on tho beach, which the tide 01 night never failed to leave behind it ; in tliosje bygone days, when I had the three great requisits of an enjoying trav eller, to wit: plenty of time, plenty of patience, and plenty of money, so if the coach turned over and smashed up could afford to wait until another could, be had, or if the ship went to, the bottom mstead of its destined port, twas just the same to me, because it 1 was not at one place I was at another, and there was al ways somcjstvaugc rocs to 100K at, some queer "dip" that set me calculating how many horse power it- required to make that rock 'just turn up so, and all the million inquiries which geology, astron omy, conenoiogy, and a dozen other dry names suggested, which not only had the effect to keep me from fretting, but keep mo in continual humor; well, ir. all these different situations and as many" more, I have found out, among others, three things 1st. That a man out of money can t bo 2d. That a man out ot health can be happy. . ,, , , 3d. That a man without a wife cau t bo hanjw. Therefore I have . come-to tho coiclusion that the best way , to- be happy is to take care of your health, keep out of debt, and get a wife. ; ' ., Ilorrlblfi Solution of a Myntery. From the Oswego (N. Y.) Palladium. , In the early part of the month of Aug ust last, a little girl named Eliza Drum mond, about eleven years of age, whose parents reside near the town of , West Monroe, in this county, left her home one morning for the purpose of picking ber ries, and never returned, the most dilli gent search was made for her by the par ents and neighbors, but no traces could bo fouud. She had not been drowned, for all the places where there was water were carefully exmamined, even to wells and cisterns in the neighborhood.' After weeks of fruitless search and inquiry the afflicted parents gave up tbeir child as lost. It was. reported that a band of va grants had been seen near the locality about the time of the disappearance, and the opinion prevailed that the child had been stolen by the gypsies. ,, - The event, which created a profound sensation at the time, had almost past from the minds of all save the stricken, parents, when it was painfully recalled by a recent occurrence. -On iuesday last, five or six lads went out hunting in the vicinity, and during the day came upon a spot wlicre - a large numner jji black snake3 were discovered and killed. The appearance of the reptiles in such numbers and this season of the year, was considered remarkable, and it wai sug gested by one of the party that a breed ing den must be somewhere ' near. 1 ' A search was immediately commenced, which resulted in a manner far different from their expectations, v . ' In the side ot the hill, near tue edgJ n A 1 ot a swamp, was tound a sort ot opening;. which, in the summer, was concealed by tall grass and bushes. In this opening was found a human skeleton, from which, , every particle of flesh had been taken.' j he bones were as white as ivory, ana all perfect. Near by was a tin pail, in rusty condition, and a tin cup. - 1 he boys were terribly frightened, and gave the. alarm. The remains was taken from the mouth ' of the den, and on examination showed that the place had been, and probably now, was a breeding place lor black snakes. 1 he boldest hesitated to cuter. Ihe entrance, , which was large- enough for the admission of a man's body grew smaller, and tended downward. Lighting balls of hay, soaked in kerosene? wero thrown, iuto tho cavity, and in less than fifteen minutes "eighty-two, snakes, ranging in length from one aud a half to two feet, were killed. ' ' ' The pail and cup were recognized by Mr. and Mrs. Drummond as those taken by her child when she wcut away the last time. .The physicians pronounced the remains that of a 'female child,' "and there can be no doubt but the poor little girl, while picking berries in the vicinity of the spot, became tired, seated herself in tho shado of the opening' to thehor rid den, Was'attacked by the reptiles in numbers and killed.' The discovery has shocked tho whole community, and al most prostrated the stricken parents, whose hearts are , made to bleed anew at the thought of tho horrible fate which de prived them ot their child. . ; ' u t I II11KU u uinuo tofor a wife, hiff 1 , IJPGut - ttot-sbtefant Jm- V Against the Current.
