OALL AND EXAMINE. C'J vilb an heritage far a hump- back, club foot, or a wai bashful! Wbon tlio ladies camo to look at bim in 1m cradle, anil to pronounce biui little eijiress iinagc of bis Ibe litlle "sweet" would invariably put his fat fiat inlo bis moutb, and biJe bia in leresting face in tbe pillow. He could not bo won by sugar-plums or peanuts; be would bide bebind bis mother's robes when asked for a LUs, and if a tlranger attempt- ed to take him up, Eaid stranger usually got tbe worst of it, in the nay of kick) and matches. So it came to pass that, although people called Harry a charming litlle thing to bis mother, :hey eipressed themselves asido in very different terme, find maligned poor Harry's infantine character lo an unheard of extent. To have listened lo the private con- versation of half a dozen gossips on this point, you would have bad no doubt in your mind but Harry Singleton was tbo roost ac- curate edition of siu eilant. Mrs. fair faced, handsome very greatly Ibis unfor- luoale trait in tbe temperament of her bo loved first-born, and used every endeavor ID break bim of il, but without success, and Harry grew up lo youth the most bashful Ho child ucated .1 a tot's school. But notwithstanding Harry's bat-bfuloen, be grew up lo be a Gne follow generous and handsome, and there i not a girl in lawn but would bate felt herself honored by ha preference. Harry, however, clood aloof from all tbe female sex, and as a natural consequence, lio was the subject of numberless practical jokes, and the bipl-JS occasion of continual gig- gling among the gaj gilli at tbe singing school. When Uarry was nineleeu, Rosalie Wat- era came to Whitestown lo piss somo timo with her aunt, Mrs. Judge Flanders. Ho saliu teas a prttlv. bricht-eyed, mischievious fairy of MvenlMu, and if the truth must bo confessed, sbn took quiln a liking to handsome, bashful Harry Singielon; but of conree, she nas loo much of a coquette to allow Harry lo guest it. He, on bia part, thought himself deid in lore, though lio dared not raise his eyes lo Iho peerless face of bis guiding star. For Tfhalc days he racked his brain, planning how he sho'd address her, but without deciding upon any thing deflnilo. One nighl, at a ting- ing school, ri bold iden Hashed ncrots his brain; its very boldness made it Kom prac- ticable. He would offer to escort Rosalie home! It nas an audacious act, and Hnrry trembled in every limb at the thought of it; a cold perspiration started out of every pore; bis hair nearly stood erect, and bis face flushed hot ns the bosom of Vesuvius. He attempted to ting, but his Sao tenor voice broke down; he coughed, hammed nnd flourished his handkerchief, aud was at last obliged to sit down in dcspnir. Tho eieicises of tho evening closed. Harry seized bis hat and rushed fir the en Iry, wbero he look his station in full view of the door thronrrb irhich Rosalia would emerge. Her hood appeared in Ibe doorway, aud his teeth chatleied in his head, but his resolution WAS unsbnlten. Ho made a sortie in her direction, knocking over little James Brown, the barber, and I Whitatown Academy, and bate him edu-1 Breatbless and up generally, the youog man reached home, crawled in at a back window and retired to bia bed, which he kept three days afterward. In ipite of all apologies and Haltering from Mrs. spite of gentle, affectionate advances from Rosalia herself, Harry Singleton could "never be Icmpted to step iniida the mansion of tbe judge; and Rosalie, after wailing two years for Harry to male himself agreeable to her, gave up the vain hope, rind became tho wife of a substantial widower with four children, which was quite a good beginning. Harry went on his way alone, as bis mother had feared and prophesied, and lhal eiemplary little woman let about learning him to repair stockings und replace buttons, with commendable patience. Ho had studied for tbo law, had been two yearn admitted lo Ibo bar, and was a talent- ed and rising young man. Being also wealthy and handsome, half the ladies in the village were in love with him, but he gave them a nido berlb nnd passed them bv. E. BOBIWSON. WLoluk >nd Ret.il.

ItoprWon, and retiring of all human beings, was, also, singularly uulucky. No ever received so many bumps and thumps, since the fall of Adam; bis forehead was i populous archipelago of blue, yellow and black bruises, in various stages of coloring, Ho never touched a knifo without culling bis Gngert; be could scarcely cat his meals without sticking bis fork into his bands, and at length bis father allowed him only a spoon with which lo lake bin ing thai be could do bimeelf no damage with that pacific inslrumer.t unless be swal lowed it. When tbero was company at the home, Harry generally retired to an unoccupied room in tho Attic, enfconc- cd himself ic tbe bed which stood be passed the day reading somo old novel or book of history, picked out of the great chest in Ibe garret, used for Iho repository of rubbiib; or, by way of variatiou, lie sometimes look refuge in the barn, and snugly hidden on the hay-mow, spent Iho time in silent meditation on his unfortunate destiny. Ho would walk a mile around through !ho fields lo avoid meeting a young lady; and when in tbe street, if he heard the Eound of wheels be would lesp over the wall or fence and lie prone on tho ground, nntil tbe vehicle had ps-sed by. bo grew older, he lost nono of his peculiarities, and before he was aizleen years of age, bis mother's chief difficulty wat the fear Ibat lit) would lire an old bachelor. Hundreds of silver dollars could not have induced him to speak to a girl of his age, and his father obliged lo fore- go bis purpose of sending him to the fearfully mutilating tbo now cnlash of Miss the milliner, in the net; but thcso were minor affairs, nnd Dot iv orlby of his notice, lie touched tbe shoulder of Ho- Balie "liny home with you to- evening i" etammered be. She put her little hand within his arm, and they wen! out together into tho etar- light. Harry scorned to tread on nir. This world nas this world no longer, but tho charmed paradise nf impossibility; and ho dared not epcnk lust he tbould break the spell. Tho liltlo lady, too, was strangely silent, and Ibo entire distance to (lie bouso of Judge Flanders was paised without n word. At the door Harry vrould havo bidden bis companion good-night, but she retained bis bund and drew bim inlo (he parlor; and thero Ibe light of Ibo ctmndolier fell full on Ilio foco of tbe laughing woman, and with drend dismay Harry saw that not Rosalie, but Mrs. Judge Flanders herself, stood before him. He had waited on the lunl, and not tho niece! Ha uttered an exclamation and started up to retire, but Mrs. Flanders good-humoredly detained bin Mr. Singleton dabbled aomo in politics, and at Ibe early ngo of thirty ho was elect- ed Member of Congress; and in celebra- tion of this i vent i grand dinner in his lion or, was given at Iho Whileslown Jlotul. Tbe successful candidate must bo proeonl, and oliiquelle demanded ho should bring a lady with him. The committee of arrangements waited upon bim lo inform him of Ibis fact, and it mny well bo buliev- ed lhat tbo communication fitted him with horror. Ho begged of the gentlemen to provide him n partner, if ho must hnvo one, stipulating only lhat the should not be a young lady; and in duo course of timo ho nas informed that ho was to Attend Mrt. tho widow of the Into Dr. Timothy Grubbins, tho wealthiest, as we! its tlm fattest and tallest wotnun in the wbolo country. Tbo eventful evening arrived. Mr. Sin- gleton took Mrs. Grubbins to Ibo hotel in a chniso. The lady wns magnificently at- llrctl In n OouWu nUrled tuilinun, viltli i'iV> bons, aud fearfully eitonded crin- oline. mediately felt easier. A moment after- wards Judge Flanders proposed a sent! inenl: The Honorabla Harry Singleton: May he always return Iho lillo of Honor, hut may be soon resign bis right to he called Single. It is Lot good for a man Lo bo alone." Tliis sentiment wns drank with -ipplause.

In Ibe summer of 1777, when the merican army was in New Voik, a girl of le cily went la her lover, one Francu, and communicated to him a secret the had verheard, a plan lhat was in operation mong the Government men to destroy tba American commander in chief, by poison, thich was lo be plentifully mingled with reon a favorite vegetable of h'u. on ha folloning day, at Richmond Hill whera he was lo dine. Francis nas H thorough Whig, although supposed o be fiiendly to tha Royalists, went tm- nediatelj lo VTatbingtoa and acquainted aim with this diabolical plan for his deslruc- ion. Washington hating listened with at- enlion, eaid: My friend, I Ibnnk you. Your iadeli- y has saved my life; to nhnl reserve tho Almighty knons! Dot now for your safa- y, I charge you lo return to your bouse and let not a word of what you have relat- ed to rue pass your lips. It would involro rou in certain ruin! and Heaven forbid hat your life should bo forfeited or endan- gered by your fuilh lo mo! I will lako Iho necessary steps lo prevent, and at tba- iamo litno discover the instrument of this wicked device." The ncit day, nbout two hours beforo dinner, ho gent for ono of bis guard1, and told him of Iho plot, nnd requested that he would di'guisa himself as a fomala and go lo the kitchen, there lo keep a etrict watch upon the po.is until they should bo nerved up for the tnblu. Tiio young men careful- ly observed Iho directions ho had received, and hod not been long upon his poet of duty beforo n young man, another of the guard, came anxiously to the door of the Don't go, she said kindly, you really did bravely. I am proud of you; I knew from tbe first that you had made n mistake, hut was fearful you would never Iry again, if I denied your escort. Rosalie will be in toon; wait for her." Indeed, be hnppy fact, ma'atn, I bo- lieve I am wanted to home." Harry started for Ibe door backwards, but instead of choosing that by which ho had entered, he bolted out ir'.-i the dark kitchen, and reiced (be handle of Iho first door Hint offered. Mrs. Flandeis was fol- lowing close, but before she could utter a single word, his good night" was suc- ceeded by a series of thumps and rumb lings in the direction of (he cellar. The (ruth bunt upon her at onco. Harry had taken Ibe cellar door anil had fallen down liairs! She seized a light and flew down the tleps. Tbero lay liar; ry, with his head in tbe (rough of ashes, ant! his umomanlically elevated over the ebelf of a neighboring cupboard. He was considerably bruised and stunned, but not otherwise damnged. Mrs. Flanders would have raised bim up, hut he antici- pated her; and without slopping to shake himself, bounded up tbo Hairs and made a dive at the outer door, (lie allies streaming out behind him, like a cloud of gray smoke. Tbe door was opened from without, and Rosalie herself appeared. At the sight of bnlle-s, tmoking Harry, she uttered a loud Poor Harry! the thought of escorting thnl giantess inlo a room filled uilh people, made Iiiin sweat like ono under Ibe infill ence of a powerful dose of ipecitchu.ina. liut he was in for it, and must get out Ibe best way he could. Mrs. Grubhins, proud and triumphant, preceded him, breaking tlm passage, nnd compelling lower people the ground. Jubt as she arrived on tho threshold of Ibo bnnqueUinf; hull, (he droppod liar fan; and just at that mo- ment (he audience perceiving Hnrry in the back-ground, proposed throe cheers for Hon. Mr. Singleton 1" Harry stooped to reclaim tho fun, and when the enlbutinslic multitude looked for their champion, ho was nowhere visible. Cries ran round tho room loud and vehe- ment: Mr. Singleton! whore U Mr. Sin- glclon t" and directly Mr. Singleton, look- ing very hot nnd very much confused, ap- peared from under Ibe upper tkirl of Mrs. Grubbins' lady having com- pletely submerged Iho honorable gentle- man in (lie folds of her drapery. Gentle- men smiled in their nod ladies gig- gled behind their handkerchief; Mrs. Grubbins looked more regal (linn evur, and Mr. Singleton leaned against a pillar for support The announcement of dinner was a great relief. Jndge Flanders presided; Mrs. Grubbins occupied tho sont nl Single- ton's right; Mrs.Flambeaux eat at bis left, and Lucy Deane, tbe village belle, was his t'ij-a ri5. Harry's position was exceedingly crnbar- ratsing to ono of his peculiar temperament. He dared not refute anything that was offered bim, lest somo one should look at mato, nnd his tthitti pantaloons wero drip ping red with tho snnguinnry vegetable! A simultaneous shriek burst from all ai r-emhtcd: 41 Good heaven-! Mr. Singleton is woun ded! Murder! murder! Cull n Ihu murderer! Ui. L litocd lo death!

In n fen moments dinner was announced; nnd the parly nas usbored into a handsome aparlment, where be sumptuous board was spread, covered with all tbe dolicacies of the season.

When the remainder of the ofiicers and company sealed, and eager to commence tbe duties of tho table, the chief said impres- ely: Gentlemen, I must requesl you to sus- pend your meal for ,t few moments.
