A young physician has great diiB-culty in attaining pre-eminence in his profession amidst a^ast city like New York, and Doctor Cavender found this to ba hia case precisely in starting in life; nevertheless he struggled bravely with a determined will to overcome all obstacles, and finally succeeded in establishing himself in a limited position which promised, with attentive application, a living for the present, and the prospects of a good income in tho future. .. His office was on a side street liear the Noith river, and much of his prsc-tioe being among the poorer cl^es was necessarily gratuitous. While pa^g one of those visits of mercy an mcidc^ occurred which raited most fortmuttely for him. He hod just left a poor colored family who resided in a rear tenement hous3 on W——street, and on reaching the main thoroughfare stood gazing at the miserable surroundings of the wretched neighborhood with a sad heart; that any of God's creatures should be necessitated to live m such vile slums. While thus occupied ho saw two young ladies, bearing a basket between them, approaching him. Although plainly dressed in dark alpacas, there was something in the innate gentility of their manner which denoted that they were not inhabitants of the locality. The elder was apparently twenty, while the other was some two years younger. As 'they wore no vails, the young practitioner saw that they were strikingly handsome. On reaching him they paused, and the elder inquired where No. — W- stieet was. MERCHANT TAIZ.ORS. C. G. VOGEL : & SON, E. S. Calhonn St., opp. Phoenix Bl'k. JOHN G.

On reaching the number, the doctor recognized the house to be one of ill-repute; and, apologizing, inquired if they were aware of the nature of the place they sought. To which he received a negative reply, and the elder, who acted as spokeswoman through the whole interview, said they had seen a notice in the last night's paper to which she and her sister had responded, and were taking some provisions to the suffering family. She handed him a ^p of newspaper and ho read, "Any kindly-disposed young persons desirous of alleviating the wants of an almost starving family will please oblige by calling at No. — W-street." "Tl^ is either a mistake in print or the vile subterfuge of an evil mind to deceive benevolent persons," said tho young physician, indignantly. "This house is one of the worst in the neighborhood, and it is fortunate, ladies, that I met you as I did, otherwise you might have been flagrantly insulted;" "It scarcely seems possible.that any one could so far lower himself as to bo guilty of such an outrageous action. Sir," said the lady. "Nevertheless it is demonstrated by the paper in your o^ hand," was the anything the matter?" Tho voice, was soft and musical, and the tno turned to the speaker in surprise. He was a tall, elegantly dressed young man, but an air of languid abandon pervading bis handsome countenance, together with the cold glitter of his snake-like eyes, would certainly have warned any one possessing a knowledge of human nature not to trust him implicitly. "I^waa inerely warning these ladies d£ the nature of the house," replied the doctor, "^me scamp has inserted an radyertisement, stating that w Carving family resided here, and these ladies, ^th womanly sympathy for suffering humanity, have brought provision to the needy family. YOu can substantiate my statement as to the premises. Sir." Ho handed the advertisement to the new-comer. "Most assuredly," was the ready reply, as the man's eyes perused tho beautiful faces of the ladies with an air of uneqiuvocal admiration; he then read the paragraph. "Abominably shameful!" he muttered ; "it was indeed fortunate, ladies, that you met this gentleman; these printers are responsible - for many mistakes. I know the family this referred to; thpy reside two blocks farther below." "O, thanks. Sir," said the elder lady; "I am so glad that it is not false. I should have been deeply grieved to have been convinced that any one could be guilty of so cruel a jest as this gentleman supposed it to be. He thought some one had done it to deceive benevolent persons." "Thanks for humanity's sake I am able to disprove that theory; if you please, I will lead you to this really deserving family." Th6 ladies signifying their willingness to accompany him, thanked the young physician for his kindness, and followed the stranger. Doctor Cavender stood looking after them for a moment, as they proceeded down town, and then sorted homeward. But a vague perception of impending da an intuitive something which no could hot comprehend, a feeling that tho proceeding was not all right, caused him, after moving a short &tance, to turn and follow thepartyhohad just quitted. They were but a few steps in advance, and proceeding leisurely, when he saw a carriage stop close to them, and the next moment two men sprang hastily from an allejrway and cast two heavy hoods over tho heads of tho ladies, who struggled bravely, but were easily thrust into the carriage by the assailants. As the tall stranger was preparing to follow, the doctor seized his urm and hurled him backward. A quick sign passed between the inmates of the coach and their foiled comrade, when the driver, whipping up his horses, drove furiousljr down tho street. With a lithe spring, the baffled scoundrel dismantled, leaving his coat in the hands of his assailant, at whose head he launched a fearful blow. But the Doctor, who was no novice at the manly art, received the stroke on his left arm, which was guarded by tho coat, and returned the compliment with a stinging left-hander, which felled his antagonist msensible to the pavement. Not pausing to see the result, our hero cast away the impeding garment, and hastened after the receeding vehicle, which turned into Canal street, t<iward the river. On reaching the comer he recognized two saddle hones standing fastened to a lamp-post as belonging to 'Fred Cranston, an old colle^ chum who was near by. Ho hastily com-mii^nicatod.his adyenture, a^d in a few minutes thoy were mounted aiid~8peed-ing after the carriage at a swinging gait. They ovorhanled the abductors before reaching the Desbrosses street ferry, and commanded the driver ^to halt on penalty of his life, which order he was obliged to comply with. Tho abrupt stoppage of the carriage caused one of the promising inmates to lower a window, through which his pugnacioas visage protruded to demand the cause. He saw at a glance that the game was blocked,, and the next instant both worthies endeavored to escape by the other door, but the unpleasant click of a revolver in the hands of Cranston soon brought them to their semes, and they were placed in the hands of a policeman, who convoyed the three to the nearest station, wbero they were committed for trial. After promising to appear against them at tho proper time, the complainants were ^rmitted to depart. Tho terrified laues, under the d^ec-tion of their intropid deliverers, Vere conducted to a Sixth avenue car, in which the doctor placed them, and was preparing to follow when a heavy hand on his shoulder caused him to torn. He was arrested on tho charge of murdering a stranger in W- street. The next daj'. through the combined efforts of Cranston and Mr. Wilson, the young ladies' father, he was released on bail. At the inquest, a verdict wivs rendered of "death by apoplexy, caused by ablowglvenmselt-delencc-" The stranger was recognized as B- a prominent W- sharper, one of those elegantly-dressed individuals, with ambrosial curls and dainty mustaches, who may be seen any afternoon on our prominent thoroughfares, like ravenous wolves seeking whom they mar devour. At the trial of the three other scoundrels, one of them admitted that he had been engaged by B-to assist in the abduction of the Miss Wilsons- He had made the acquaintance of the servant girl, and placed the paper con-talnv the advertisment in her hands to be shown to the young ladies, who were known to be extremely kind to the poor. If responded to in person, they Avere to be seized and borne off to a place of security; otherwise soma other plan was to be adopted. It is needless to state that it would have been successful had not some one been providentially in the nick of time. The adventure resulted in Doctor Cavender's becoming a frequent aud welcome visitor at the residence of Mr. Wilson who appointed him familv physician, which proved but a foundation-stone to a brown front which he now occupies on a street near Madison square. But there was a still more powerful magnet in the house of the rich merchant to attract the young M- D. thither ; namely," Love Eyes." Only a few weeks since he repeated to me with burning pathor the following stanzas from Oliver Wendell Holmes' exquisite poem on that theme: "Gaze not npon his shield of jet The shaft npon the string Is set; Look nM beneath his azoreveil, Though every limb were caMd^in mall. Bat that Is dearest all the while. That wears for ns the sweetest smile." The way of all flesh, I thought, " Love's voung dream." I was right-The other day I saw him proudly passing from the verandah of a Fifth-avenue church, with lovely Fanny VVllson, the youngest daughter, fair as the orange blossoms on her queenly brow, with checks like blush-roses, clinging tO' his maulv arm a happy, smiling bride. THE PEDMiEB'S SO». trade, for houses in. cities are sometimes seven stories high, and Knmer might break his leg or neck. And so Komer did not go to the city, but kept watching the old cow. But for all that, this gentlemen, and others to whom he showed Komer's drawing, did not forget him or them, but kept on talking (^ut tho wonderful child, and what was more to their credit, tried to help him. They sent for him to take lessons with their children, in French, Latin and music. And that he need not be ashamed to come among them, they gave him better clothing, and the gentleman who first saw him, brought him to eat with his family at his own A BBIDAI. CHAHIBEB INVADED. A Briae Stolen From Her Husband'. Arma. ast week 3Ir. Sarah Evans ouse of J. n. ¡ase in Fr-mk-Iv&nsls about eel when he that he was as.^l8sued by king- affidavit I parents were 9 4jMered the ak the Do you know what might there is in the little words "I will5'" Let me tell you a story : In a poor hut in Germany lived a lad. This hut had only one room, with a Replace in it, and no stairs. Instead, a ladder in it went up to the xoof. Besides the lad of whom I have spoken, was the usual supply of a poor man's children. The principal support of the family was a cow, and the principal employment of Komer, the name oi my hero, was to collect, in the spring, the sedges which had been thrown up by -the waters, to make Utter for the cow. After the meadows had become green he passed the long summer days in watching her, sometimes alone and sometimes in oQmpany with other boys. He also brought wood to bum, and helped to glean in harvest time, and when the autumn winds shook the -trees roughly he gathered acoms and sold them to those who kept geese. When he grew larger he helped his father, who was a peddler, to carry his bundles from hut to hut. There was a small school, too, where Eomer learned to read and write, but that was all he learned the^e. One evening (Eomer never forgot that evening) he was sitting at a table with his parents. A small lamp was burning upon it, and his father, who had just come home with his peddler's pack, was talking to his mother about his business. The old peddler loved smoking, and had brought home with him a packet of tobacco, the wrapper of which lay upon the table. On it was the picture of a horse. Little Komer idly took up the picture. This is very good, thought he; I wonder if I could draw one like it if I should try ? Who knows but I might ? Little Komer looked at his father, who was very busy talkng; so lie took pen, ink and a piece of paper, and shyly began. When he had finished, he looked at it; it seemed to him very perfect, and his little heart swelled with a new, strange delight. Then Komer showed it to his parents—one can't be happy alone—and they praised and admired it, more because Komer did it than anything else. By and by Komer went to bed. It was very dark, but still he saw his horse—^lie could not sleep for thinking of it. He tossed and turned, and longed for daylight that he might see it with his bodily eyes again—for he was not quite sure, atter all, but that he was dreaming. Morning came. It was no dream ; there was the horse ; but Komer was never again the same Komer. All that day fie was excited and restless, and the next, and the next. How was he to become a real painter? Near his father's house there lived a potter, who had some outlines as models for painting hi» plates and dishes. Little Eomer went to him and begged the loan of these outlines for a little while. Then he made a blank book, and very caretully copied them into it with pen and ink. The people in tho huts around thought it wonderful, and they were handed about, till at List they came to a man who was a sort of mayor of the place where Komer lived. He was so pleased and astonished that he sent for the boy, made him presents, praised his drawing, and asked him how ho would like to be à painter. Like it? Of course .Eomer nearly jumped out oi his skin for joy. Like to go to a.gfeat city to a master paint.^. er, and learn to be one himself. Of course ho could not find his tongue to tell all the joy that fiUèd.his heart. ISiere was no need—his glowing face Was enough. Thé gentleman said ha would talk of it to his parents. Now, his parents never heard of any kind of painting save doorâ and houses, and when the gentleman asked them, they answered that it was a very dangerous table. -Little Komer did not think, as you do, that it was a hardship to study— not he. He flew at his books with a will, and till he was sixteen years old, never spent an idle moment in lesson hours. After this, he did some co]pying for a gentleman, besides other writing, in order to earn money. Then, for the first time, he went to a great city, and gazed on splendid paintings till ho was nearly b<«side himself with rapture. Now indeed, nothing could stop him. Ho made tho acquaintance of a young artist and commenced immediately, weeping that he had not been permitted to do so when he first had the offer. So hard did he work, so absorbed was he with this one idea that he grew sick; his hands began to tremble like those of a palsied man, and he could no longer hold a pencil. Now, indeed, ho must rest if ho would not die. But ha was too active to lie upon the shelf and be quite idle; if he could not draw he would read. He took up a volume of poems; why could he not write— he, Komer ?—^why not ? He siezed his pen, he wrote poem after poem. They were copied, . praised, and set to music! Now Eomer turned his attention to writing books. CKf ted men were proud of his friendship; he could talk with them on any subject. His twenty-fourth year found him famous. The old cow, were she living, which was doubtful, must take care ot herself—he had browsing" of his own to do. I hope he kept that horse he copied from the tobacco paper; I hope ho made a drawing of the old hut where he was bom, and the peddler, with his pipe and Iiis pack, and the green meadows where he used to dream away the lovely summer -days. whUa oia Brin-dle switched the flies and winked lazily at the patches of blue sky as she lay under the broad tree shadows. I hope he did not forget his old mother, if she was ignorant, because she knew enough to love him, and perhaps, had she not praised that horse, because her little Eomer drow it, he might have tended cows all his life—who knows? ^^_ mrbat Next 1 Is the European war at an end? This question is one that is not easily answered just now. The people of Paris—and that means France—^ifwe are to judge by the tenor of the cable dispatches, ore determined to defend themselves to the last. It is not to be presumed that Prussia will relax hostilities until a request for a respite of arms is made by the French authorities, a request which they express a de.> termination not to make, at least at present. Should the Regency be continued^ the war will be continued upon the original basis, with perhaps slight modifications, upon which it was inaugurated. Should it be abrogated and a new French govcmment established in its place, the whole phase of political and milituy affairs in Europe will be suddenly changed, and the different powers will be compelled to assume a different attitude than at present occupied. Let us suppose that a Republic is declared, which shall either carry on war against Prussia, or ask for just and equitable terms of Peace—^what is to be the result ? In the first place, can Prussia consistently or jusÜy refuse to treat with a French Republic for peace? Second, will the other powers of Europe permit Prussia, should she be willing, to recognize a Republic in France ? In the event of a declaration of a Republic, theso will be the first questions to arise. Passing the question whether a monarchy will recognize the existence of a Democratic gov-emment along its own border, we came to thg other, will the other powers permit a Repilblic? In the first place, a Republican form of government would likely prove a fiailure, and in the second place, if the people of France should aosiro to establish it theji^would have all monarchical Europe to contend with. Monarchy is the same in all a^es and countries, and is imwilling to concede anything to a free and representative government. Neither England, Austria, Russia or Pmssia would consent to a Repnblie of forty millions of people to bo established in the heart of Europe. Should it prove successful, their own forms of government would be speedily overthrown, and the government oi the people substituted. But suppose the house of Orleans succeeds to the throne of France. The Napoleonic dynasty no longer enters into the contest. Yet the war must go on. The house oi Orleans, or any other claimant, cannot establish a claim to the throne, without redeeming the lost prestige of the French arms. The question oi dynasty disposed of in the overthrow of Napoleon, and a "legi-mate" monarch upon the the throne of France, then comes up the vexed question of territorial limits, a question that France and Prussia will not settle of themselves, but to which all the leading • powers will be parties, and which will undoubtedly result in some material changes in the map ofEurope-Though active hostilities cease at once, there w^ill arise perplexing questions touching the conclusion of a treaty of peace, which will not only tax, but require the active ^rticipation of the ablest diplomats of Europe.—Pittsburgh Post. TIte Oblo Campaiam. The Boston Post says: "In Ohio the Democrats are organizing for an earnest conflict with Radicalism, in hopes of a result largely in their fitvor at the polls. The strongest talent of the party has been ]^aced in nomination in several of the Districts —the Third, Fourth, Sixth, Seventh, Eighth and Fourteenth; and tiie Fifth, Ninth, Twelfth, Thirteenth and Fifteenth the symptoms betoken marked improvement in the vote over the last one thrown against the Radicals. We mention such names as Denver, Campbell, McEinney, Jewett, Hnbbell and Critchfield, representing men who are of great strength in their own Districts, and who are expected to shake, if not overthrow, tho majorities heretofore secured for the dominant party. A general deten^ation is being aroused to vote up reform by voting down high taxation and the accompanying cor ruption and extravagance. The canvass is to be made on living questions, and not on tho resurrected memories of the Radical party as paraded in the address of the Congressional Committee. The West is waking up to the im-poitant issues pending, and a Like itpir-it everywhere will work splendid results for good government in November." _ Latjba C. Holioway says that" the female sex in America are in a transitory state." Yes; the season is about over, and most of them are transitory-ing home from the watering-places.

The writ was issued, served by the Sherifl", aud the young lady produced in Court. Tho marks were still on the woman'.s arms where she had been tied, and there were other signs of rough treatment-She told her story a little nervously, with a defiant; said she went away from home boldly, and took nothing but what belonged to her. After hearing the testimony of the different witnesses, Judge Pugh sustained the writ, discharged Mrs. Neel, and ruled that the defendants in the case, the Evans' should pay costs of prosecution, as they were the first offenders in kidnapping another man's wife. ^ Bismarck'« Terms of Peace. The New York Tribune's correspondent had an interview with Bismark at the Eing's headquarters, near Sedan, on the 2d of September. In respect to his inquiry what were likely to>bo the conditions of peace demand by the Kng of tho Prussians and tho Government, the Count replied : " There are two ways of stopping an attack on Paris and settling the question of the ^inc provinces. First, wo might make .Alsaco and Lorraine a neutral Btate, liko Iiiûxëmhurg or Belgium, extending from the former country to Switzetíand, and so separating France and Pmssia by a group of neutral States; but I confess it appears to me that tho neutrality of existing small States is already so difficult to protect, and is at every moment capable of so many and such very dan-gorous compUpations, that I do not think it would bo worth while to make more neutral States, with new borders and dangers. "Secondly, \Ye might annex Alsaae and Lorraine, and hold them as conquered territory ; but 1 am sure that this would not be looked on favorbly by a majority of my German fellow-countrymen. We are all most anaious to complete our unity, but we do not want any people among us who are unwilling members of the German nation. That the Alastiaus would be most disloyal subjects of the King of Prussia, in spite of the great majority of them speaking the German language and being of Teutonic origin, there can be no OOTfbt. ^"Thirdly, there remains to us, then, as^a third course, to take Metz aud Strasbourg, and to keep them. This is what we shall do. Strasbourg particularly, is absolutely needful for the protection of South Germany, which is at the mercy ot the French army- So long as France has Strasbourg nothing is to stop a French invading army. Now it would be very unfair if we were -¿o leave our South German friends unprotected, after they have fought so bravely aifd weU by our side in this campaign. Then again, by holding Strasbtirg wo could always prevent any movement on the Rhine. • We should be able not only to march an army by the Valley of the Main on Paris, but to take a French army marching on Mayenco or Coblentz in the flank and rear. So we have besieged Strasburg vigorously, and when we have got the ola German town back again we shall make a Gibralter of it." But allow mo to suggest, I said, that the cession of Strasburg is not a thing to which France will be easily recon-dled, aU the more because it is, as you say. the key of France on the East. "My dear sir," was the reply, "you haVe been with us continuaUy since our entry into France. I have heard you constantly talking French ; now, have you not clearly seen that it would be difficult for the French to be more angry with us for our victories over them than they already are ? No, not if wo were encamped in the Bois de Bologne itself, and just because they are and will be for many a year to come very .soro against us we must take care not to leave in their hands the means for doing us a mischief. When you meet a dnmken man in the stireets what-do you do ? If he is mis-ohievous you call a policeman,don't you ? WeU, Strasburg and Metz will havo to be our poUcemen, and good, stout ones, too." It is curious, I remarked, how much the French do hate the Prussians, and what stories they, toU and believe about you ! I have lived a great deal in Paris, and I know there aro told there'as facts some fables that are aU but incredible. "Yes," answered Bismarck, "We have taken thç place of the English thirty, nay, twenty years ago ; but, as they have come to forget their hatred of perfidious Albion, so fhey will have to find, some day or other, that thero is some good in us also. It would seem as if the French nation stood in constant need of a bugbear to vent their wrath upon for the moment. We ere the bugbears."

"Yes, I am aware that is another English idea," replied the Count, "but, like other English ideas, it is not accepted out of the country of its birth.

Republican, Aug. 27.] WilUam H. Damall, residing about one and a half miles from Elizaville, together witii his wife and several members of the family and some visitors, had gone to a neighbor's on Tuesday to spend tho day. They loft at home three daughters, the eldest abou 18 years of age, tho others younçert About 3 o'clock in the afternoon there* was a call at tho front door in which the elder Miss DamaU answered. It proved to be a gentleman who wished to see on* of her brothers on business, and not finding him at home he went away. Shortly after another call was made, and Miu D., supposing he had returned, a|;ain went to the door. She had some difficulty in turning the latch, from the fact that the party outside had hold of the knob. Aa soon as the latch was turned, however, the door was pushed open and Misa D. seized by a starlwart negro and thrown violently upon her back in the doorway. We have no desire to state what followed. Suffice it to say, the young lady was rendered unconEcious by the shock, and was unablo to call for assistance until tho scoundrel was taking his leftve. Attracted by the screams of the^ young Iftdj', a colored woman residing on the place reached the scene in timo to see tho course of hia fight through a field of weeds near by. The alarm spread like wildfire, and soon prge parties were organized for the purpose of scouring the country. Though several negroes were pursued on suspicion, and one or two arrested, it wos not tiU about ll.o'clock on Tuesday night that tho proper party was secured. He was in bed at Ms father's house, about two miles from where the outrage was committed. Our informant states that the negro's father was quite wilUng to have his son shot if he was guilty of the crime charged against him. The accused was named Frank Timborlink, aged about 22 years. He was not a resident of thé neighborhood, but had been seen prowling about there for several days, and was especially noticed in the vicinity of Mr. Dam-all's residence. He is reported to have been a worthless character. After his arrest ho was taken to Dr. D.'s house, but it being late at night it was thought best not to tako bim in tho presence of his victim. Accordingly he was taken to Flemingsbiirg and lodged in jail. About noon on Wednesday he was again taken to Mr. Damall's, and at once recognized as the person who perpetrated tto crime. It was with the utmost difficulty that some of those present could be restrained from-ehoot ing tho demon at once, but better counsel prevailed, and he was returned to Flemingsbuig in charge of tho Sheriff. A preliminary examination was had, and the case continued until Saturday. Tho prisoner was remanded t:> jaU, and a guard placed over him. The excitement knew no bounds, and in spite of exhortations to let the law take its course, an outraged and infuriated populace repaired to tho jail about midnight, on Wednesday, overpowered tho guard, took the criminal from his ceU, and hung him to a tree near tho outskirts of the town. His body was left hanging until about 9 o'clock on Thursday morning, when the authorities took charge of it. state Items. The horses are dying at Ligonior of some strange disease.

The landlord tolls me they hev aU paid their bills thus far, and he sez tho last thing he duz at nito, before he goes tow sleep, iz to pray that they wiU kon-tinue on to do so.

I think I could win lots ov money, spile mi morality, but the loss ov a fu dollars would git my virtu out of fix for ages. Long Branch is also the home ov the miserlanyus crab and tho world-re-nound musketer. Tho crab is kaught in endless confusion at Plezzure Bay, cluss by Long Branch. He iz kaught bi tieing a hard knot on the other end of a string, and then dropping the string down in the water and ticlding the bottom ov his feet with tho knot ; in this way some times ne is kaught, and sometimes ho is not. Tho musketer is az natral to Nu Jer-sce as Jersee Utening iz. The musketer is a marvelus kuss, but whi he over waz allowed tu tako out his papers and travel, is unknown tew me, or even tew enny of my near rela-shun?. If ho haz any destiny tow fill, it must be hiz stummuk, for he is the biggest bore, akording tew the size of hiz gimlet, I have ever met seldom. It don't look weU for a philosopher tew be' fraoktious at enny thing, not even a bug, bu if enny boddy ever hears me swear (out loud) he may know thare been a kussid muakeeter on mi premises.

The animal was camiverous as in the location of its stomach were found a number of bones, apparentiy the wing or leg bones of large birds. At tho point where first discovered tho bones wore only a couple of feet below the surface, but lay latterly into the steep hUl. They went not in the rock but in the clay between the strata. At tho time of its death, or when deposited, there' was no deflection of the body beyond a idip at one point of six feet, but it immediately rose again to the original level. It is more than propablo that the serpent belonged to the Saurian ose, and may have been tho once famed fththy-osaurM; but of this there is no proof, as no indication of legs or arms have so far been found. The formation in the vicinity gives every token of former -vohianic eruptions, though the bed upon which tho remains rested was quite smooth. The professor is inclined to the opinion that the serpent" was not indigenous to this country, but was deposited there by an iceberg when they swept over this country thousands of years ago. Additional interest is lent to this discovery by the fact that it is the first of the kmd ever made in America. The matter is to bo thoroughly investigated by scientific gentlemen.

A week before the marriage, tho widow Nancy visited the reaidenoe of BiU's maternal parent, and luckily found her in tho field and Bill in the house. Nancy is to aU intents a practical business woman, and went to work at once. Drawing a stool to BiU's feet, says she, "BUI Rogers, how'd you Uko to marry ?" Says BiU, in reply, "fust rate."

So ho tramped home again, entered his house before his family, and, without saying a word, took from its rack the rrao gun, and placing it on his shoulder, again left.

Wo were shown, yesterday, by Professor J. W. Glass, who is interested in the stono quarries on the hUls of the Patterson farm, south of tho city, tho bones of an enormous serpent. Some time since the Professor, whUe superintending a force of men engaged in the quarries, discovered, lying immediately on the top of the upper stratum of the lower sUnrian rock, a few bones, apparently the vertebra of some animal. Being of a scientific turn of mind, his curiosity was exdted, and he at once commenced inspecting the remains, and well ho has been repaid, as his discovery has tumed out to be no other than the remains of an immense serpent deposited there in primeval times. Mr. Glass has already secured over fotir hundred joints of the vertebra, and has not yet reached the end of the huge serpent. ^ Specimens of tho joints have been sent to Professor Lsidy, of the College of Natural Science of Philadelphia, who pronounces them as undoubtedly belonging to an immense serpent of the antediluvian age. Tlie length of dry oop, und datve has no right to vote the serpent, so far as traced, is almost in dis kuntry.'

When I came to these minies in March last there were from two to three thousand persons here, aU anxionfly looking forward to the coming spring to enable them to work their ledges, or prospect for new paying quartz and gulch mines.
