The landlord was sent for, and

being sent for, and filled the room
and adjoining hall some to laugh,
and some to say they wouldn't have
believed it; but nearly all to exult
that the happy pair had been "found
out." No explanation could be given;
and the upshot was, in spite of tears,
threa-s and eu treaties, rage and ex
postulations, the unfortunate newly
married pair were taken in charge

downstairs en route for the Police

When tho train stojiped at Camden
four gentlemen got o' and walked
arui-in-swui, rapidly ai d silently, up
one of the by-streets and struck oil
into a foot-path leading to a secluded
grove outside the town. Of the lirst
two, one was our military friend in a
blue coat, apparently tho leader of
the party. Of the -second two, one
was a Mniliug, rosy little man, carry
ing a black alise. Their respective
companions walked with hasty irreg
ular strides, were abslraeted, and
apparently,-! ill at- eae. The party
stopped. "This is the place," said
Captain Jones. "Ye.," said Dr.
Smith. Tin.-. Captain ami ibo Doctor
conferred together. . The others stu
diously kept apart.
."Very well. I'il measure the
ground and do you place your man?"
It was done. "Now for the pistols?"
whispered the captain to his fellow
.second. "They are ail ready; in the
valise." replied tho doctor. The
principals were. pleL.l ten n..ees

expectation of being .shot. "You
will tire, gentlemen, Mmuitaiu.onsly
when I give the word," said the (Jap
tain. Then, in au undertone, to the
doctor, "Quick! pistols."
The doctor, stooping over aud
f.iiubling at tho valise, appeared to
find something, that surprised him.
"Why. what the devil " "What's
the. "matter?" asked the .Captain,
striding up. ''Can't you Und the
caps?" "Deuce a pistol or a cap, but
this." He held up a lady's night
cap! "Lock hete and here!" hold

bottle, and a comb. - .
They were greated with a long
whistle by tho Captain,- and a blank
stare by the two p: iucipals. "Con
found the luck," ejaculated the Cap
tain, "if we haven't made a mistake,
and- brought the wrong valise!"
The principals looked at the seco.j.is.
The seconds looked at the principals.
Nobody yojtiuteered a suggest ion.
At last the Doctor 'inouircd: "Well,

'" "It's d d un-
lucky," said the Captain again. "We

his principal the Doctor, advancing
to the Captain, eopferrod with him.
Tlieu the Captain conferred with
his principal. Then too st-conds con
ferred with each other. Finally it
was fornudly agreed between the
contending parties that a 'statement
should be drawn up in writing,
whereby principal No. 1 tendered
the insurance -that the . offensive
words, "You are a liar," wer hot
used by him ;in any personal sense,
but solely wp. .n abstract proposi
tion, in a general way, iu regard to
the matter of fact under dispute. To
Mh,ich principal No. 2. appended his
statement of bis high gratification
aud unqualifiedly withdrew the . of
fensive words, "You are a scoun
drel;" they had been used by-him
under a misapprehension of tho in
tent and purpose of the remark
which preceded them.
There being no lc-tiger a cause for
quarrel, tho duel was ended. The
principals shook hands, first with
each other, next with the seconds,
and were evidently very glad to
pet 'out of it. "And now that is so
happilv settled," said the doctor,
chuckling and rubbing bis bauds,
"It proves to have been a-lueky
mistake after, all, that we brought
the Avrong valise. Wonder what the
Isdv that opens it will ay when she
finds the pistol?" 'Yery well for
von to laugh about," growled tb.3
Captain; "but it is no joke for mo
to lose mv pistols. Hair triggers

on a pilgrimage from bonse to house,

In good spirit the - party crossed

liave it, met the unhappy bridal pair
just corning down - stairs in charge
; of the policeman. "Ilrtllo, what's all
: this about?" inquired the Captain1.
"Oh, a couple of burglars caught
with a valise full of stolen proper
ty." "A valise! whnt kind of a va
lise?" "A black leather valise.
That's the one there." "Here!
Stop -Hallo! Policeman! Land

depot. Here's their- vali.so with her

terest of the crowd in all this dia
logue, which they appeared to regard
as a delightful entertainment got up
expresssly for their am;. snient.
! "Then yon say this 'ere is yours?"
said the policeman, relaxing his hold
: on the bridegroom, and confronting
the Captain. '"Yes, it's mine!" "And
bow did yon come by the spoons V"
: "Spoons ! von jackanapes!" said the
! Captain. "Pistols duelling pistols!"
I "Do yo.x call these pistols?" said the
; policeman, holding up one of the
i oiJver spoons marked " i B."
r The Captain, astonished, gasped:
i "It is tho wrong valise again after

j police functionary, now invested with
j with great dignity by the importance

The dispute waxed fast and furi
ous. The outsiders began to take
part in it, and there i: no telling
how it would have ended had not an
explosion, followed by a heavy fall
and scream of pain been heard in an
The crowd rushed to the scene of the
j new attraction. The door was fast,

mysUry explained, i'ho thief who
hud carried olf the Captain's valise
for his own had taken it up to his
room and opened it to gloat over the
booty lie supposed it to contain,
thrusting his hand in after the
spoons. In so doing he had touched
one of the hair triggers, and the pis
tol had gotio oh", the bullet making a
round hole through the side of the
valise and a corresponding round
hole iii the call of his h g.
The wounded r.i.-.c;d was taken in
charge first by the policeman, and
then by the doctor; and the duelists
and the wedded pair struck up a
friendship on tho score of their
mutual mUhap, which culminated
in a supper, where the fun was abun
dant and whe re it would be hard to
say which was in the best spirits
the Captain for recovering his pis
tols, the bride for getting her night
cap, the bridegroom for escaping tin;
Station House, or the duelists for
escaping each other. All resolved
to "mark the day with a white
stone," and henceforth to mark
their names cn. the black traveling
bugs iu white letters.
A Modern Iiivcnlien Kiimvii to
In a "Book of Curiosities," says
tho Loudon Tinas, wu read: "There
was an artificer iu Rome who made
vessels of glass of so tenacious a
temper that they were as little liable
to In- broken as th.sse t;-ufc are made
of gold and silver. When, there
fore, lie bad made a vial of the purer
sort, and such as he thought a pres
ent worthy of CiL-sar alone, he was
admitted into the presence of the
then Lmnoror Tiberius. The gift
was praised, the skillful hand 'of the
tit list applauded, and the donation
of the giver accepted. The artist,
that he might enhance the wonder
of the spectators and promote him
ttelf yet fur! her in the favor of the
Lmperor, desired the vial out, of
Cieur's baud, and threw it with
sucn force against the iloor that the
inoht- solid metal would have received
some damage or bruise thereby.
Catsar was not only ama.cd but af
frighted by the act; but the artist,
taking up the vial from the ground
(which was not broken, but only
bruisyd together, as if the snbstauce
of the glass bad put on the- temper
of brass), drew out an instrument
from his bosom and beat it out to
its former ligure. This done be,
imagined that he had conquered the
world, as believing that he bad
merited an acquaintance with C;esar
and raised the admiration of all the
beholders; but it fell out otherwise,
for the Fmpeior inquired if any oili
er persons besides himself was privy
to the like tempering cf glass. When
he told him 'No,' he commanded his
attendants to strike off his head, say
ing. 'That should this arti!iee come
ouee to be known, gold ami silver
would be of asliitle value as the dirt
iu the street,' " Long after this
viz., in 1G10 v.e read that, among
other rare presents then sent from
the Sophy of Persia to tho King of
Spain vere six mirrors cf malleable
glass, so .exquisitely tempered -that
bey could not bo broken.

An Actress' Nervousness.
Laferriere. says a French journal,
has been playing "The Poor Idiot"
in the provinces. At one small town
the stock company was very nervous
about playing with the great star,
especially a hapless woman who Avas
cast for the mother, and with whom
Laferriere was the crack scene of the
piece. It is in the fifth act, at the
moment that the idiot begins to rec
ognize and distinguish the persons
that surround him; then she rushes
to him and, folding him in her arms,
"My son, I am your mother."
At every rehearsal Laferriere en
couraged her. "Don't be so nerv
ous," he would say; "keep cool. All
you have to do is to cry, 'My son, I
am your mother,' and 'embrace me."
"Olt, yes, but M. Laferriere, I am
so frightened to play with you."
All -Rent well through the first
four acts, and in the wait before the
fifth, Laferriere went to the actress'
dressing room to cheer her.
"Keep a stiff upper lip," be said,
cheerfully; "you know what you
have to do. The whole play leads
up to that scene. I reckon on you.
'My son, lam your mother,' and em
"Y'es. ves; 'My son, I am vour
mother." I shall not forget."
The curtain rose. Laferriere was
playing with even more than his fur
ious vigor. The crisis comes and
the lady clasps him to her bosom.
"Now then," he whispered encour
agingly; then, taking up bis part,
"Who is this woman? Who is she?"
"My mother! I am your son!"
gasped the actress; then she shriek

disappears under the coronet of the

thing exceedingly ludicrous in this
ending of bis career, and tho more
ludicrous because it is entirely char

England. He was one of Caravaggio's
gambling cavaliers in plumed 'bat
and slashed doublet, and he laved
the cards in his band to bis own "ad
vantage. The men can be measured
now. Sir Robert died a Commoner,
and Disraeli will di". an earl. But,
of the two Prime Ministers, which
will England remember as having
more wisely served her? Whoso
statue, of the two, will she "regard
with reverence and pride?
It is a curious and significant fact
that the comments upon Mr. Disraeli's
"elevation" treat it rather as an
abasement. Thackeray goes far to
persuade us that every Englishman
is at heart a snob. "I myself should

But despite the awe which Lord T015
Noddy inspires, it is plain tlj.it there
is general regret when a clever man
consents to become Lord Tom Noddy.
'J bis goes far to show, on the other
band, that there m a genuine admira
tion of ability, and that the untitled
name which a man's talent or service
has distinguished is more honorable
than a peerage. "A peerage or West
minster Abbey!" said Nelson as he
went into battle. But no other mono
than Nelson upon his tomb could
satisfy his country. A title which
comes at seven tv-t wo is of necessity
lustreless. The Earl of BaeoEud'l
can never make the title illustrious.
