BY MAY KESTLEP. DALLAS. "No Elson, I don't thl you are act ing quite the gentleman in regard to An nie Gray. She is but a child, and as in nocent as a baby in the art of flirting. If you wish to try your powers in that line, why don't you take up arms against some of the gay heartless coquettes with which this place is swarmed. There's Kate Les lie, Maud Fulton, Mary Dubois, and a number of others, all willing to have a lark with the rich and handsome artist." Now, Dick, old boy, don't be too hard on a fellow. Those gay butterflies tire me. I want something new. Annie is such a pretty little thing and her sim plicity amuses me. She is only my sis ter's servant, and of course she don't ex pect that I mean anything serious. She is pleased with my attentions, and just like all the women always ready to fall in love with every nice looking chap they chance to meet. I should not be surprised if she would meet me to-night with a frown and a cold how do you do? And to-morrow smile lovingly on you." "Frank Elson, you have no more heart than a mummy. Can't you see that the child is passionately in love with you? One look into her eyes will tell the story. Poor child, she might as well have thrown her affection away on a marble image as to bestow it on one like yon. At least be man enough to undeceive her be fore the knowledge that you are only tri fling with her gives her too much pain." "Good Lord! man, to hear you talk one would suppose that I had been guilty of some dreadful crime, the greatest vil lain in the States, just because I've been amusing myself with a servant girl. There was a ring of scorn in his tones which aroused the blood in Bichard Sword's veins, and he replied hotly: "And so you are a villain, if you play with the affections of that innocent child." There was an angry flush on his face, which boded no good, and Frank Elson, not wishing to provoke the anger and thereby lose the friendship of the young lawyer said laughingly while he knocked the ashes off the end of his cigar: "Well, Dick, since you take this matter so much to heart, I will let Miss Annie understand, in the most delicate manner possible, that our friendship must end. Do you know Dick, although I treated the subject so lightly that I do really care for the child; and if it was not for my family, I almost think I would be tempted to marry her. No woman ever inspired me with the same feeling she does. What a great pity it is that she is nothing more than a servant." "She is a thousand times better than any of the painted dolls we have here, and a more perfect lady than any of them. I am much mistaken, or Annie Grey has been reared to be waited upon, rather than to be the servant of others. Did you notice how" very small and white her hands are?" "Yds, Dick; and my sister also re marked it. By George, I wouldn't be surprised if she had run away from home. My sister knows nothing about her. She employed her two weeks ago, through the recommendation of one of her lady friends. When I come to think of it, no poor girl could have ob tained the education she possesses. My suspicions have been aroused, and I am determined to find out something about her. When I first saw this young girl, she was reading a letter written in French, for one of the servants. I promised Captain Justian that we would ride with him this evening. Will youf- come r :? "Yes; I want .to see the Captain about the Trescot estate." - The young men rose and entered the hotel parlor, just as a slender, white robed, girlish figure glided swiftly out of one of he Summer house, and sink ing into one of the low seats, she drew a long, shuddering breath. She was apparently about sixteen. The round, sweet face was very white, and the scarlet lips were tightly compressed. There was a dangerous gleam in the blue eyes, as she muttered under her breath: "Only a servant! The contemptible flatterer; I will repay him for this or die in the attempt." A few minutes after she passed out, and met Frank Elson and Bichard Sword on their way to Captain Justian's. Annie met the young artist with bright laughing eyes and sweet smiles. She returned Dick's deep bow with a slight inclination of the head,' but the lawyer saw a look in her eyes that puz zled him for a long time after. She tripped along towards the house; and the young men continued (heir walk in the direction of the Captain's cottage. When Frank Elson returned to the hotel late that evening, his sister flew to him with the intelligence that Annie Gray, her children's nurse, had left that even- ng. -i-' i i "Oh! Frank, what shall 1 do ? Annije was a perfect treasure. I'll never got anotherone like her." ) "Probably she might be incVaced to reh turn. Did THje leave ner addess 1" Frank askeSssthe question quietly, but there was a3her feeling at ,his heart V. t "No; sue iidn't teP me she ywas going. I sven offered "er higher waes, bnt nothine wonl induce her to T re man." Mrs. HoffmftM ran onz 10 meet ner us band, and Frflik was alone. His &weet little wild rise had flown.

You can judge for yourself this eve- in, replied the lawver. The town clock had just pealed forth tne hour of eight, as our two friends were shown into the brilliantly-lighted parlor of the Trescot Mansion, while their cards were conveyed to Miss Trescot. The artist was as handsome as ever, but his gay, careless manner was gone. He had searched everywhere for Annie Gray but his efforts were In vain. He found no trace cf her. It grieved him much, for he discovered that he loved her fondly, and would marry her at any cost. His proud family and her position in life were forgotten. Her pure love was all he longed for. There was the rustle of silken robes as as the door opened to admit Miss Tres cot. Both young men rose instantly, but as their glanoa rested upon the young lady they stood still. Frank came forward with outstretched hand, saying eagerly, while his eyes lit up with wild joy : " Anne Gray ! Is it possible I At last I've found you." The color deepened in her cheeks, but she answered haughtily with a proud in clination of her head : " Not Annie Gray Miss Trescot, if you please." His outstretched hand fell listlessly to his side as he stood looking at the fair girl in blank amazement. Miss Trescot advanced towards the as tonished lawyer. She held out her hand saying sweetly : " I am pleased to meet you again, Mr. Sword, and thank you for your noble defense of a servant." His hand closed over hers, and the elo quent look he bent upon her expressed his pleasure more fullv than simple words could have done. " Miss Trescot, by some means you have learned the conversation that passed between Mr. Sword and myself, the day you left my sister's employ. But believe me when I say that I've bitterly "repented of the words I used. I searched every where for you to ask you to marry me, but found no trace of you till this even iug. Won't you forgive me ? I ask noth ing more, for I know you hate me, and I deserve it. But ere we part " his voice choked, and 'he walked hastily to the window ashamed of his emotion. She looked after him ; pity taking the place of scorn in her eyes. Miss Trescot glided to the young art ist's side, and laying her hand on his arm, said softly : " I do not hate you, Mr. Elson, and I'm truly glad to meet you as a friend." Frank grasped the white jeweled hand, and a bright, eager look crept into his eyes a he spoke ; but, as the word friend fell upon his ear, the light died out, and a hopeless expression settled over his face. "I freely forgive you, but all the affec tion I ever felt for yon died a sudden and violent death, when I accidently over heard you and Mr. Sword conversing about Annie Gray. No doubt you think it very strange," she continued, "why ore who had been reared to a life of ease and luxury, should seek employment as a common servant: I will tell you what prompted me to take such a step. My grandfather sent for me one day, and in formed me that he had chosen a husband for me, and if I did not consent to marry him - would never receive a penny from him. I became very angry, and told him very plainly that i would rather starve than marry a man I hated. I determined to leave my home, and accordingly ac quainted a lady friend of my intention, receiving her solemn promise to keep my secret. She gave me a letter to your sister, who employed me at once. I met you and thought you were true and per fect. There I also met the man my grand father willed I should marry. I found him a gentleman in the true sense of the word. Becoming disgusted with my life as a servant, I returned to my home; my dear grandfather freely forgiving my lit tle adventure." As she ceased speaking the young law yer drew near. Bowing low before the heiress, he said quickly, while a flush swept over his face "Miss Trescot, your grandfather surely informed you that the person whom he had done the great honor to choo.se for the husband of his grand-daughter had declined to accept the honor until he had formed the acquaintance of the young lady, and had won her heart and her free consent to become his wife." "Yes, Mr. Sword," Annie replied, a vivid blush lying on her cheeks. "Dear grandpa told me how nobly you had acted, even refusing to be mentioned in the will." "I was only just, Miss Trescot; the money was rightfully yours, and I would have been a villian to act otherwise. If you will lend me a few minutes I will give you an account of your estate." . The lawyer drew out a package of pa pers, as he spoke, and taking a seat on the sofa beside Annie, he began to ex plain the different meanings to her. Frank Elson, after bidding Annie Tres cot good-bye, bowed to Dick, and took his departure, a wiser if not a happier man. When he had gone an awkward silence .fell between the two, the color coming and going in (he. young girl's cheeks, and Dick's heart-beating at a rapid rate. At last Annie - 'buried her face in her hands and burst into tears. Dick drew one of her hands gently away from her face and said softly: . "Whatrieves you, Annie?" She did not answer but continued to weep. "I must tell you now or never, Anfie, I love you. Is there any affection for a eat rough feUow like me in your pure a passionate feeling in his caused her to dry her tears up to him with bright, loving jL '' . : IrHio like you." Colonel Jack Hays' Men. The Indiana Register, in February, 1848, published a series of letters from Lieutenant Colonel Ebenezer Dumont, Fourth Indiana Volunteers. One of them we find in a copy of the New Or leans Delta, of February 13, 1848, in our possession, containing the following ex ceedingly graphic and interesting de scription of the entrance of Col. Jack Hays' Texas Bangers into the city of Mexico: "Well, yes, I was about telling you how the Bangers came to town. They rode some sideways, some standing up right, some by the reverse flank, some faced to the rear, some on horses, some on asses, some on mustangs, and some on mules. Here they came, rag-tag and bob-tail, pell-mell, helter-skelter. The head of one covered with a slouched hat, that of another with a towering cocked hat, and a third bare-headed, whilst twenty others had caps made of the skins of every variety of wild and tame beasts. The dog, the cat, the 'bar,' the coon, and the wild-cat, had for this purpose all fallen a sacrifice, a willing sacrifice, on trre express condition that not one hair of their tails should be touched; that is to say, I suppose it must have been on this condition, for each cap had a tail hanging to it, and the very tail, too, I am keen to.swear, that belonged to the original owner of the hide. I fancy even now that I hear the last request of that same old coon, which was, 'Oh, spare that tail!' This dying injunction has not been forgotteu. His tail is still where nature placed it, and will there re main. But I am wandering. Tim sub ject upon which I started was the Texas Bangers, and find that I am on the sub ject of coons. To return. A nobler set of fellows than these same Texan tatter demalions never unsheathed a sword in their country's cause, or offered up their lives on their country's altar. Young and vigorous, kind, generous, and brave, they have purposely dressed themselves in such a garb, as to jjrove to the world at a glance that they are neither regulars nor volunteers common, but Texas Ban gers as free and unrestrained as the air they breathe, or the deer in their own native wild wood. "Many condemned them on sight, for the world is prone to judge a man by his coat. But by correct deportment and marked propriety, during their stay at this place, they won rapidly upon the es teem of those who had condemned them in advance. "Before they left, they accompanied General Lane to Matamoros, and fought that battle, and as usual came off first best, with the loss of but one man. I have described the entrance of Hays' reg iment into this town, and Aill now tell a little of what took place on their arrival at the city of Mexico. "Hays' men entered the City of the Aztecs and approached the Halls of the Montezumas, as at this city, the subjects of universal curiosity. The sides of the streets were lined with spectators of every hue and grade, from a Major General of the North American Army to a Mexican beggar. Quietly they moved along. Not a word was spoken. They seemed uncon scious that they were the observed of all observers. The trees in their own native forests would have attracted as much of their attention as they seemed to bestow upon anything around them. They seemed to say, 'We have seen men, and been in cities before.' The difference between their entry into the city and that which I now describe was a mere freak of their own. It is said that a real gentleman is as much at home in one place as another in the bear-dance and the hoe-down, as well as in the King's palace. Jn each place, they acted their part well. In this, it was to play the part of a bull at a fair to show more courage than conduct. There, as the sequel proves, it was- to show both courage and conduct. This, with them, was to be the bear-dance, and the other the King's palace. "After entering the city, they had pro ceeded some distance without being mo lested; but the temptation at length be came too great for a Mexican to with stand, and one standing upon the side walk threw a stone at the head of one of the Bangers. As nsual with the Mexi cans, he overshot the mark, and took off the cap instead of the head of his in tended victim. Never was a guilty act more instantly punished. It was the last stone he ever threw for, quicker than thought, a flash was seen, a report wa3 heard, and the offender fell dead. A flash of lightning from the Eternal Throne could not have more speedily called him to account. The Banger quietly replaced the pistol in his belt, reclaimed his cap. and rode on. Ere long, another stone was thrown and another greaser launched into eternity. Dtiring all this time no noise was heard, no disturbance was per ceivable, the column never halted, and the ranks were not broken. "Information soon reached Scott that two Mexicans were killed as Hays en tered the city. Having exerted himself to suppress all disorder and prevent all outrages, the commanding general was extremely wrothy, and despatched an or der for Colonel Hays to appear instantly before him. In five minutes a tall, gen tlemanly young man stood before the commander-in-chief of the American army, and accompanying the word with the proper salute, thus addressed him: 1, sir, am Colonel Hays, commander of the Texan Bangers, and report myself to you in accordance with an or der just received.' General Scott re plied : 'I have been informed, sir, that since the arrival of your command in this city two Mexicans have been killed. I hold you, sir, responsible for tie acts of your men. I will not be disBraced, nor shall the army of my country e, by such outrages. 1 require you, sir,wb say r my information is correct, and der me a satisfactory ationpeplied Coi-viiilis Gazette.

If there is one thing more than another that annoys a good wife,who is nervously sensitive to all that is gross and ill-timed, it is the habit some husbands have of using profane language in their homef. In many cases it is mere thoughtless; ness on the part of the good man, who never gives a thought to the better half; even should she mildy remon strate, he pays no attention to the re buke. A lady whose husband was addicted the bad practiceto we have alluded to, came to her family physician, laid her grievances before him, and said. "Now, Dr. N .won't you remon strate with him, and try to break him of his habit? I know he will listen to you." "Why, madam," said the doctor he would pay no attention to any thing I could say to him, although somewhat out of my line, I will recommend a prescription to be administered by you that will certainly cure him. It is an infallible remedy." "Oh, what is it, doctor?" "Well, when Jones comes home again and swears, do you swear back at him, Of Course, I don't want to take the name of the Lord in vain, but, d n things a little for his bene fit." s And she did. The next day John came in and in quired whether dinner was ready and was told it was not. "Well, why in the devil isn't it?" he asked. "Because," she replied, "the wood was so d d wet the fire wouldn't burn." "Why, Mary, what is the matter with Are you crazy or have you been drinking. "Neither," she said, and quietly pro ceed to put on the dinner. B'..;' Mdn't melt like butter between his teeth1 it rather resisted all efforts at iua.:tt':.' - on, like so much India rubber, iiud finally John blurted out: "What o&i&s this d d beef so in fernal toug! .'?"' Mary looked up archly and re plied: "Well, John, I suppose you went dowu to the butcher'.;, and without knowing the difference, picked out a pieee of some d d old stag that hadn't been fed for a month." John jumped up, looked at his wife in dismay, and wanted to know what such language from her lips meant. "It means just this, John: you are the head of the family, and just as long as you think it manly to swear in my presence, I intend to do the same. If yon don't like to hear it, you know how to prevent it," The cure was radical, and to this date Mary has never been compelled to administer another dose of Dr. N 's prescription. - Need For Coal or Wood. j A correspondent has sent us a start ling letter from MM. Betam-Edwards, from which we give an extract: "I send you the following particulars of a recent scientific invention, just patented, and destined without doubt to play a very important part in our economic history. I think it may be regarded as a solution for once and for all of the great coal question, not only among ourselves but abroad. M. Bourbennel, of Dijon, the celebrated lion and panther slayer, lighted upon the following discovery by hazard, and after six years' persistent in vestigation brought it to entire workable perfection. He discovered by means of two natural substances, inexhaustible in natur.-, the means of lighting and main taining fire without wood or coal; a fire instantaneously lighted and extin-" guished ; a fire causing no dust, smoke or trouble; a fire costing one-tenth at least of ordinary fuel, and what is more wonderful still, a fire tSo portion of which answering to our fuel is everlast ing that is to say would last a lifetimesr M. Bourbennel's invention. The fires could be on the minutest scale or on the largest. They would be used for heat ing a baby's food or for roasting an ox. Being lighted instantaneously, there will be a great economy of time. M. Bour bennfel at once patented his invention and j4 body of engineers and savant' from Paris visited him, and pronounced his discovery one of the most remarkafcle of his agW I have seen these' fires and stover-.
