You have all heard of the " corpse
that Mitchell bought." Well, the young
man spoken of iu the first part, was
none other. lie not only killed his
man, but ujutilated him after he had
killed him. True, it was a hard case
that he killed the "boy" that shot
Sim Oldun, but then it was done in
cold blood. Boise had no jail at that,
lime, so the murderer, Fred Bucking
haujf alias Johnny Clark, was r ut into
the Garrison jail. Que night the guard
was bucked and gagged and Johnny
was taken out. Three scantling wero
set up in the main street (f the city,
aud JoliDny was left dangling in the air.
He had fought manfully, but of no avail,
the three XX X told the tale. He
was taken down by tho citizens of the
town, and given a decent burial. Af
terward, Nellie Clark, a woman of
shaky morals, came up to Boise and had
his remains taken up, ostensibly to take
them to San Francisco. They went to
Umatilla or Portland, or some place on
the Columbia, where Nellie, coming
across old rerd, was persuaded toaban
don her old flame hence, the u corpse
that Mitchell bought." But we had
mounted the box by the side of " ma-

Irlver of the Overland Staac delighted

by the way, was coated pretty well with
over with specimen rings, "you see my
cheat is weak, and I am compelled to
protect it." Hello, hero 'wo are at the
Twelve Mile House, a low, rambling
pile, built of balm logs, one story high,
covered first with poles, then with rye
grass, and then with mud, and it makes
a good roof ; the chiucks arc stopped
with a pole, and then straw and mud,
smoothed nicely down and tho whole
thing white washed. Hero we turn to
the right, leaving Doise river, with its
muddy current, its tall and graceful
balms, its rich, narrow valleys, its tall
rye grass, or hlackblue grass, waving
like a sea iu a geutle wind. It brings a
peculiar feeling over one to look upon a
scene Iiko this, a dreamy feeling akin
to love for the place, and yet a desire
to get away. To look back it seems
that everything is dead. No cattle, no
houses, sight, nothing but tho ser
pent-iik ; rttgth and coil of tho balm
tree winding through the desert. The
t-un beats down hotter aud hotter, the
crickets keep up their everlasting chant
and all tho ee sees is thousands of
acres of s;sgo brush and sand, and now
and then a trow Hying slowly over ti e
waste with every feather distended aud
beak open, almost su located with heat.

During the recent tour in tho West,
the Brothers Worthington gave an en
tertainment in the town of Osborn, Mo ,
with McAllister's Stereoptican better
known, probably, as the magic lantern
and among other astronomical scones
the galaxy was thrown upon the canvas.
The younger brother, who was explain
ing the scenes as they appeareJ, here
remarked that he supposed it hardly
necessary to inform the audience that
the scene before them was the galaxy or
milky-way, or as it was in some places
the milk-maid's path. He was just go
ing to give a discription of some of its
most important features, when he wis
interrupted by a would be smart youn
man in the audience crying out, " Yes,
yes; that is the nulk-maid's path, but
where is the milk maid?" Turning
quickly upon tho speaker, Mr. W. re
plied : " She'll be here as soon as she
finds the calf is out." It is needless to
add that the calf subsided, amidst a roar
of laughter from tho rest of the audi
ence. An exchange relates that while the
members of the republican convention
were assembled at the Bates House,
in Indianapolis, a visitor remarked to
the bar keeper that he must bo making
a fcooi thing out of the convention, to
which the barkeeper replied, cursing
the republicans, that his receipts had
been only $25, adding, had it been a
democratic convention he would have
taken in $2,500
At tho present time, when the mar
riage relation q:cupi:s much of the
public attention, tho following views ot
the late Theodore Parker on this sub
ject are not without interest:
" Men and women, aud especially
young pcoplo do not know that it takes
years to marry two hearts- even ol
the most loving and well assorted. Hut
nature allows no sudden change. Wo
slope gradually from the cradlo to the
summit ot life. Marriage i gradual, a
fraction of us at a time. A happy wed
lock is a long lulling in love. 1 know
young persons think love belongs only
to the brown hair, and a plump, round,
crimson cheek. So does for its be
ginning, just as Mt. Washington begins
at IJos ou buy. ut the golden mar
riage is a put of Jove which the bridal
day knows not him.: oT. Youth is the
tassel and silken llutvcr of love, age is
the full com, ripe and solid iu the car.

iht-tr opt oites in temper

erally a good match. They do, it in
.stiinrtively. The young man does not
say my black eyes require to be wed
with bine, and my over vehemence re
quites to be a htt!c modified with some
what ot dullness and reserve' When
come together to
wed I hey do n.it

the other just like itself.
Old p-ople never marry their oppo
site. ; they marry their similars, and
from Ciih.-ulatiou. Kaeh of these two
arrangements is very proper. In their
long journey, these two young oppo
site will fall out by tho way a great
many tim-f and both get out of the
road, but c itlt will charm the other
back again, aud by and by they will be
agreed as to the place they will go to
aud the road they will go by, and bc
eomo reconciled. Tho man will be
nobler and 1 arget for being associated
with so much humanity unlike himself,
and she will be a nobler woman
for hiving manhood beside
her that seeks to correct her defi
ciencies and supply her with what sho
lacked, if the dtvcr.-iy be not too great,
and there be real piety and love in their
hearts to begin with. The old bride
groom having a much shorter journey
to make, must assueiato himself with
one like himself. Men and women are
married fractionally. Now a small frac
tion, then a large fraction. Very few
are married totally, and they only, I
think, after some forty or fifty years of
gradual approach aud experiment. Sueh
a largo and complete fruit is a complete
marriage that it needs a very long Sum
mer to ripen in, and then a Irng winter
to mellow and season it. But a real
happy marriige of love and judgement
between a noble man and woman, is one
of the things so very handsome that if
the sun were, as the (.J reek poets fabled,
