UNION, CONCESSION, FOR THE CAUSE-NOTHING FOR MSN." BY JERE. CROW LEY. MANITOWOC, WIS.5 SEPTEMBER 9, 1859. VOLUME 1, ATO 9. I----TOE OLD FOLKS. In a largo old-fashioned farm house, de- void of prentension in style or furnishing, awt a brown farmer and his wife. They ware homely, old fashioned people, and while the good woman sewed, and the farmer looked on silently, smiles lingered om their were listening to a simple little song that came from the room beyond, and whose pathos sometimes made the' tears Twilight was falling, how softly! in pleasant Tillage. That beautiful hour Menu holier.in the new autumn lime. The woods are crowned with regal splendor, and the hills change from glory to glory, M the great sun sinks behind them. The I birdi twitter bits of is written on field, leaf a red flower. The old farmer and his wife felt all this in iheir simple, loving beans, as they look- ed abroad, still listening to those sweet words and the full, glorious voice. "She's a dear whispered the far- mer, as he sank back in the leathern chair, Isn't she responded the farmer's wife, hiding a tear aa she natu- ral as she was the day she went." I don't see no rejoined the old is, there ain't no dif- ference in her ways. I was feared she'd put on airs and act like Jenny Uroadfetch. How I do dislike lhat gal with her hoops "She isn't like only like her own dear she knows a sight For says she to me to-day, aays tie, "mother, I went to school to im prove my to gel only a smat- Urin' of the different branches, and I be- like what I know, I know thoroughly; and I maun to keep on larnin' after I help you, for we must still be larniri' day after she, and dear me! I can't talk she she knows considerable, I can tell you, aa you say her heart ain't jined to any particular idol of faiuion. It's jeit the same as it ever was, dear child." "Play another, Nellie; you ought to see father and they are listen ing I it's a real treat to look at believe they think: you're an her younger sister said. Helen laughed a little and sat down _i.i_ her soul out in melody, and and his wife smiled and listen- ed and imiled. II----THE VOCSO FOLKS. From tho entrance of the great stono post office in the City of Notions, two young men moved slowly, one of them un- folding a letter ai he walked. Well the word, the taller of the two. "Oh! a most cordial a grand old farm house ho hflr What ii ur-v' or guardian, or a of relation; but lo tell the truth, n-i very near; my father's Eocond coawn married his sister." I am glad we shall be near each other I go tlie hotel in the town, you lo this double and twisted second cousin; but I'll warrant you I shall have you down at the hotel in lest than a week." Perbapn you returned the other; there are many beantiful and intelligent women in the town, and just about this time we shall not demure at a chance ol their acquaintanceship; good night; we'll the first train in the morning; lie to your toe and I'll pull it as I come by." "Don't you fonr but my eyes will be "open quite aa soon as replied Free Carl ton's friend; and thus they separated III----THE ARKIVAL. Ml ia like summer exclaimed Irving, u she stood on the old grey slab kt her father's door. "It ii like repeated, for the odor of the flowera is in the air, and ihe sun falls liotly; on my forehead." ixellie mvie a beautiful pictuje, framed by massive oak panneling of the brown door. The fiice was ipirituelle, the hair golden and wavy, ihe eyes deep, glad and bltfc the spring heavens. The glow of .uercue pave her checks the fresh aud beautiful lints that health dips her pencil IB. Her morning labors over, she said to little aisier that it was so glad and out of doon, that she would take pencils and go to "father as a twitted old tree on the farm, blessod in iUbMuty and its shadow'1 was named. tree sketched with a bold and (pirited hind, and laM within the loaves of ae broii-Hil 'nth She --at completely hidden from the road side, ihough very near, enjoying the breeze that carrie with a soft undulated swell, rich with the fragrancy of many a hayfield. Slowly sauntering along came two young men, one of them bearing a small valise, that looked more as if it was filled with artist's materials than the wardrobe of a fashion- able traveler. Thoy paused near the elm. "Oh.11 shall soon get sick of this, said the younger and handsomer man. "After a sketch or two, I guess I'll make for the hotel." I told you replied the other; but you know what old aunty always things is mighty uneartin." Vou may not only fall in love with this old country place, but with some red-cheeked, brown eyed country lassie, with a fine farm in beauty you know." "You mistake me, Ned, if you think so; I would rather die and be buried at once, than wed a mere country beauty." 1 But, my dear fellow, suppose her in- telligent, modest, and full of nature's poet- ry, tender-hearted, graceful, unspoiled by adulation, a gutless, simple, loving crea- cried Fred, laughing, "a. choice clnstre of accomplishments and graces. Country beauties are always sweet, gener- ally simple, often guilelesss; so are cows. No, no; I tell you if she was lovely as an angel, gified with common sense, t-killed' in butter making and quilting, aye even ij she turned out unexceptionable bread; still if untaught in literature and music with a soul wedded to churns, ovena and knitting-needles, I would'at marry her for a fortune." Ha, laughed Nellie it was a very pianissimo laugh, away down in the corner of her musical little hefiit. Hidden by the trunk, she turned over the leaves of her book, rustling them loudly and laughing heartily to herself. Another moment and a slight knoll re- vealed the lovely girl. Fred's face turned crimson, he bit his lip and whispered in visible trepidation, do you think she heard the other rejoined, somwhat con- fused, "she would not betray herself if she is evidently engrossed in her are safe I imagine; she could not have heard what an angel she is! "Who can she be V Yes, Nellie was an angel, as far as out- ward beauty might merit the name. She sat half reclining on her rustic seat, striv- ing to smooth out the dimples on her cheeks, as she laid her book 'lemiirely aside, and began to pluck tlie moss from tho roots. Leaning on one white arm, the gnarled trunk a back ground, a red geran- ium blossom twined in Ler glossy hair, she sat qui'.e at her ease, apparently unaware that two handsome young men were so very near. Approaching with a low bow, upon which his mirror had set the seal of fault- less elegance, Frederick Carlton spoke to Nellie. Would she pardon Iho liberty, but he was seeking the house of Mr. Irving and if she would have the kindness to in- form him where she resided, k'iiow tfca't- marriage is a devine institution, ah'cf that every one of yon should have a wife, what kind of rib would you select?

Tell he said, when once more alone with her, what does this mean? who and what are feel like a man waking from s dream.' "Only a conntry girl." said Nelliej gravely; and falling on her husband's neck she cried, "forgive me, dear husband; I am that very little rustic that you once thought you had rather die than you remember?

You may think absurd-hut let me tell you a female can be a lady: before the tub in the kitchen, aa much as in the. drawing room or in tho parlor. What constitutes a lady? It is not a costly dress, paint for tlie cheeky false and falser airs; but it is her general deportment; her inteilectnal en- dowmects, and that evidence of virtue which commands the silent respect and admiration of the world. She vrould be recognized as a laily at once. It matters not where or in whnt situation she was found, whether searching for bed -bugs with a hot poker, or hollering hallelujah at a camp meeting. All that I have fur- ther to say, fellow bachelors, is, that when you marry, sec that you get a lady insida and who knows how to keep the pot boiling, and looks well lo her household.
