. The creditorjjof Mr. Allen at fast finding
there was no prospect of getting their pay,
and displeased at his very expensive manner
of living, closed his store, sold his fine furn
iture, and left' him without money or credit.
j There was no alternative now left him
- but hard work, and as he was too proud to
work in the city, he chose to go to the coun
try and take a claim, and make a small be
. ginning (and a very email one it was) ' at
last, which, Lad ho dono in the first place,
they might in a short tune have been li ving

up teaching the singing-school, and acted

while Lizzie came out every Sabbath in one

"for; they never sawjthe like before." No !
I presume they had never seen a poor man's'

ther did not like her any better for.it. ;' Lit
tie Oerald, as soon as he was bid enoiigh,
had to work hard, notwithstanding his fash

Clair, she had gone to Europe for her health.
Sarah had married an eminent lawyer, and
lived in a happy home, surrounded, by the
" coraforla' 0 hf "The. boys," were also
1 married and living very pleasantly." But
Lizzia was doomed to still greater sorrow
ud humiliatiris. ' Her hugband.grsw tired

iher society, and not being considered very
honest, by his neighborsh left the country

We1 have seen in several of our exchanges
a statement, very properly styled 'startling,"!
which hrst appeared in the rreuonia N. 1
Advertiser some three weeks since. 'The
Rochester American snys that though it has
been widely republished, and the attention
of those interestedin controverting its
charges, distinctly cbaenged, yet there is
not a word of denial, defence or explanation
Ihe allocations contained therein must
therefore be taken as confessed. They come
from a responsible and respectable source.
They are met with studied silence. -iNo
friends of Gen. Pierce or Gen. Scott have
ventured to question their authenticity ;
therefore they must be held to be- true.
aucn tacts are calculated to make a pro-l
found publio impression ; they speak for
themselves, and account for mucb that has
been suspected, believed, but nevor before
so explicitly revealed. Ihe rredoma Ad
vertiser states .thai at the IMlicotvilIe
"American" Celebration on the 2 2d 11H.,
Col. R. H. Shankland, now of the Otseco
h rammer, and formerly of the Lattaraup-tis
Republican, an ardent Democratic supporter
of the Pierce and King ticket in 1852, made
some startling statements as to the bargains
respectively and successively between bisho

shankland, in remarking upon the
lluence the Roman Catholic priesthood ex
erted in our former elections, said that it
was now well understood that Oen. Scott,
a . short time after his nomination, had an
interview with Bishop Hughes, at which
the Bishop asked what the tieneral would
do for the Roman Catholics; in case' their
votes should be secured to him. The Gen
eral requested four days fornsidpration.
. The Bishop would not consent ; he deman
ded an instant reply, and insisted updn it,
despite' all entreaty. Ihe (ieneral then
promised a seat in the Cabinet. 'This" wan
nottenough; the agrement must be in
writintr. . Of course" thiwas - reluetlantlv
yielded to. The knowledge of the trans
action was intended to be kept secret among
jthe faithful." It was, hovever Buttered to
give so much courage and, confidence to
certairr- Whigs at the As tor Ilouse, that

Imroused in the minds of the Tambiany Hall
authorized his friends to ' ecurd a repudia

of another in his own favor, by making the
generous offer to the Roman Catholic
Alliance, of a Cabinet post, a Foreign Mis-!

Scott and electea Gen. Pierce, who re-
