A it wig Ihen the Universal custom in that now total abstinence Sute to drink whiskey to excess it followed As a matter of course that there wee an occasion i quarrel and sometimes a Drunken Row Auch a would pass Muster even at this Day in new York. Our informant stated also that the women were not exempt entirely from pit ritual influences. Each of the parties had children we believe at any rate Colvin had several and Muse of these in Hie Drunken Momenta he denied the right of railing him father and this produced quarrels Between him and Hia wife. In these is the Bownes alleged he shamefully belied and abused their sister and for which they had been often heard to threaten him with vengeance the witness said with death. In this state of family difficulties they were living when one Day while at work together either planting or Boeing a crop the Brothers and brother in Law got into a quarrel so afterwards said the women who alone witnessed it during which Colvin disappeared. Of course everybody believed that the Bowne had murdered and accreted the aliasing Colvin. To All inquiries the same tale was told that be bad gone Oft no one knew Why or where and nowhere could he be heard of by personal inquiries or through the press. Newspapers were not the institution then that they Are now. The Bownes acknowledged that in the quarrel one of them struck Colvin a pretty severe blow on the Bead with his Hoe but that it did not disable him because he immediately walked off and went directly into the Woods hat Leas and coat Lees and Barefoot and As he was not again seen or heard of they began to believe in the course of the seven years that intervened Between that time and their trial and condemnation for hit murder that he had crept away into some Hole in the Woods and there died of the wound in his head of which they had no Means of know ing whether it waa severe or not. They Only knew that blood flowed freely from it but that he walked away As Strong a a Ever. Of course no dict meet could be found against Colvins supposed murderers because the strongest proof of Hia death Hia Corpse was undiscovered and thus the Case rested for seven Long years everybody ins wife included looking upon his children to fatherless and upon her Brothers As guilty at least of manslaughter. About that time the Field where they were at work at the tune of Colvin s disappearance came into Ihu. Of a Man who had always believed the Bownes guilty of murder and As they said determined to prove them guilty and he commenced a thorough search of the premises and found in a sort of sink Hole partly filled with logs a us overgrown with Bushes and Briers some buttons sworn to by the widow As having belonged to the coat that Colvin wore upon the Day he was murdered. A Jackknife which he usually carried in the pocket of the coat was also found and near the same spot were discovered several Bones which had belonged to a human being. Of the buttons and Jackknife there could be no doubt not even in the mind of the Bownes because they knew he did not Wear his coat away. Of the bom s being those of the murdered Man there was a doubt because men of Good judgment testified they were too old and that if Colvins they would not Only to sound but More of them. Where was the remainder of the Skeleton this question was often put but never answered. And so the two Bownes were indicted and put upon their trial Tor murder. Then All these contradictory statements made in seven years were introduced and controlled with their Asse Valiona of that moment when they were in ironed with danger and anxious to escape a charge of which they were not guilty so far As of intentional murder although fully believing that Colvin Hod died from the effects of that affray. As usual in All cases admitting of doubt there was a parly in their favor which waa not entirely silenced by a verdict of guilty of j murder in first degree against the elder brother who struck the blow with the Hoe As was proved that he acknowledged together with threats made against Colvin s j life and a verdict of manslaughter or accessory to murder against the other brother under which one waa sentenced to be Hung Aud the other to the state prison for 1 but these doubts were All removed when it it came out alter the conviction and while the one sentenced to he Hung was awaiting the tune fixed for his execution that to had confessed to the murder. This confession duly prepared by some one who bad Access to the prisoner was published and settled the Case against the doubters. In the meantime the other brother who had gone to his life Unaris Ozment woe looked upon As a hardened villain because he persisted in asserting their innocence. It was an assertion that availed Juat As much and no More than it did when they were borne Down by a Tornado of prejudice and convicted without evidence of guilt. Quot but Why did you make the confession 7&Quot we a eked the convicted Man. Quot because life was still dear and i was assured that that waa the Only Way to save it. 1 was told that if i would Only confess my punishment might be commuted and 1 might join my brother. Anything 1 thought rather than Hie Gallows. I knew 1 had been a wicked Man Aud 1 thought a lie to save my Lile was not a very great sin As it would j give me More time for repentance. I could not read or write and scarcely knew what1 i the paper contained that 1 was told to put it my name to. I soon found what it was wanted for. It was not to save my life but to prove to my friends that my Cou Cinna turn was just 1 soon found that i had not my to Hope that i must die in the gel a while one is toiling in i Ison and the other Wilhm three weeks of death let us visit a Furui Boue in new Jersey and look in upon a quiet pleasant scene where the head of the family is reeding to those a therod around to hear the news Witch e new York paper affords them lie bes just finished the Reading of e detailed Ece Gont of the trial and conviction of the Bowne a for it a murder of Colvin. During the reeding the wife of the Farmer had her attention Yery much divided Between the interest she frit in the account and the effect it seemed to produce upon in individual present a Man who Raully gave no indication of inter est in anything not immediately connected with the Arm. Quot husband Quot said the wife Quot did you observe Kichard while you were Reading a he acted Quot he is a very singular individual Quot was the reply. No he was. And or. Smith had Good reasons for his opinion. About seven years previous to tills time during or. Smiths s Bee Nee with farm produce in the City this Man came to his House walking in with All the familiarity of one at Home making in quiries about family affairs and How they had All been during Bia absence in fact assuming in All business matters about the place the position of or. Smith a though he was that individual and had just returned Home after a Long journey. At first mrs. Smith was alarmed but soon found that her new lord was an inoffensive and harmless maniac. When or. Smith returned the new com or met him at the Gate invited him in and welcomed him to the House asked him if he would have the horse put up and stay All night and finally teemed to Toiuo to the conclusion that he had a right to Alay from the fact that he was some one that had been attending to Hia affairs during Hia Long absence from Home for Euch the deranged Mau considered it and in this position the new Comer not Only installed himself but continued for seven Long Yeara a valuable labourer taking a his Only recompense ins food Aud clothing a privilege of calling everything his although willing to allow the real owner to transact All the business and handle All the Money. The Only name he was known by was Kichard and he utterly refused to give any clue to who or what lie was or where he came from and he soon ceased to be a wonder. It was re marked that be had a scar of a Severo Cut on his head and whenever any allusions Wero made to it he showed some excitement and sometimes anger. Otherwise he was docile contented and Happy never do tiring to go anywhere off the farm. This evening during the Reading of the murder trial of the Bownes he had shown More in Terett than Ever observed before upon any subject unconnected with his Overy Day occupation and this being observed by mrs. Smith led to frequent consultations and queries coupled with attempts to elicit something from Kichard that would connect him with that affair but All without Success. It was about this time that win. M. Trice became some Way cognizant of the circumstances connected with this singular individual and having also read the account of the trial and conviction of Tho men As he thought upon insufficient evidence he Mado a journey on purpose to see the Man Kichard and elicit if possible something from him. Undoubtedly it was through the influence of or. Trice that or. Smith took the course that he did for the Inore a thought of Tho strange disappearance of Colvin in Vermont and Tho sudden appearance of this Man in new Jersey and his mysterious conduct since and coupled that with the scar upon his head lie determined to act perhaps to save the life of an innocent Man at All events to satisfy himself that he had not been criminally negligent in permitting a Man to be executed whom he could save. But How was he to carry their Pinna into execution ? this was without letting another party into the secret so As not to bring ridicule on him if he was mistaken in his sup kit sit Ion to take Richard to Manchester and Sec if any one there would recognize him after seven years a acne changed As lie undoubtedly was in his appearance. Our philanthropist was convinced from All he could get out of Kichard that it would not do to make any direct propositions to him upon the subject but the More he thought upon Tho matter the More determined he was to act and there was no time to lose As Only three weeks now remained to the prisoner. We forget what stratagem was used to induce the deranged Man to make an unwonted journey though we Are impressed with the opinion it was to Purchase an addition to the farm which he had Long desired that he consented to make a journey by mail stage there were no railroads forty years ago travelling Day and night into some unknown Region without exciting any suspicion that their ultimate determination waa a plan concerning which he never would hold any conversation. In Tho meantime Tho discussion of Tho innocence or guilt of the Man had broken out afresh As he had recanted his confession and insisted that he was besides to had a dream three times repeated that Colvin waa alive and would make his appearance although As he said Quot not until after to waa during this state of things there was a crowd at the Public House in Manchester discussing the topic one evening when the stage from the South Drew up. Among the crowd which always gathers around the door when the stage Arvea at a Village inn was a Man who had rather firmly maintained that Bow pcs was guilty until the dream came out but being a believer in dreams his Faith Vas staggered and he said he Quot did no to know about the stage Driver reined up at the door and the tin lantern of the Hostler opened the Blaze of a tallow Candle full in the faces of passengers As they slighted. Or. Smith alighted without exciting any remark. Not to his companion. It was an anxious moment Fot or. Smith for there was the spot where his suspicions were to be proved True and his Hopo to save the life of an innocent Man gratified or forever crushed. He said to Kichard As he got out Quot Couie let us hurry and get supper before the stage As Richard got out the Light fell in his face blinding his vision but enabling the crowd to Sec Hui to advantage. He was startled at a sudden voc iteration of the individual who had been troubled about the dream who exclaimed Quot no help me god but there a Richard Twenty other men were present to confirm the assertion and in the next minute the whole town might have been tire to add confirmation for about after shout pealed out on the night air Quot Colvin has the doomed Man in the cell listened to a wild commotion in the world ouf Oide the world that he expected to look upon to soon for the last time the Bells were in Giugo shouts grew louder and blow the door open for Colvin hat Home Hurrah a and the door was opened and the doomed Man walked out that night the night that Colvin came restored to life Freedom and his wife and children a wondrous Hap by Man but not More so than the Ono who and taken such pains of bring the Moat tangible proof possible that the prisoner was not a murderer. Colvin waa us verbally recognized by All who had known him but obstinately refused to recognize any one not even his wife and children and insisted upon going Home a he termed or. Smith s House where he had spent to Miny years. In this he was gratified As soon As the necessary proof of his identity could be taken so As to liberate his older brother. Start 1th a Goon Story is to d of a methodist preacher and the Atory is True to the letter a who lived about forty years ago. He waa a Bachelor and we could write Bis real name but we prefer to Call him Smith. He resisted Many persuasions to marry which his friends were constantly making until he had reached a tolerably advanced age and he himself began to feel the need of or at least to have new ii Lesa of Tho Comfort of being nursed by woman a gentle shortly after entering one of his circuits a Maiden lady also of Ripe years was recommended to him and his friends again urged that he had better get married representing that the lady named would proo ably not refuse to accept him notwithstanding his eccentricities.

An English paper relates the following anecdote a gentleman worthy of All credit and who May be the More readily trusted As his Story acknowledges his own defeat was aroused one night by a heavy bumping noise on the stairs. Unable to account for it he Rose donned his dressing gown and with his Candle in his hand proceeded to investigate the cause. Anxious to redeem his property the owner descended alter the rat at first continued his exertions hut As Tho enemy gained upon him he changed his tactics and turned his front upward began to climb toward his opponent. This was just such an intruder As might with All Justice hive been kicked Down stairs but so Stern was Hia air and so menacing ins aspect that the gentleman hesitated and hesitation ended in Retreat. His feet being armed Only with slippers he lost heart and began slowly to Csc and backward while the rat deliberately mounted after him and thus steadily drove him Back to his bedroom Tho door of which he shut in the face of his foe and terminated the adventure by retiring to bed while the rat returned to his Well earned Booty.

When the son found that to father could not be induced to give his consent to Tho match he concluded to marry without it. The father then threatened to withhold every a Hilling from him whereupon the son or plied that if his father did not intend to give him anything he would become a Christian and according to Law he would become entitled to one half of i fathers Fortune. The father much alarmed flew to his lawyer to inquire whether such a Law really was in existence. The lawyers answer waa in the affirmative but adding that if he would hand i Iii Over ten Guinea be won d give him a plan by which he could frustrate Bis son s plans.

A a postponing a Goose. By a false Boer. Having business at Mobile Soroe time a Ince but being in no particular hurry to transact it i determined to take passage in one of the packet ships that run Between that City and new York. She was called to and was commanded by a Sharp Little fellow a part owner and who was therefore interested in making the tripe As profitable As possible. The were not Long in nuking this discovery for Quot obeyed orders you Black Rascal re said i the Captain greatly astounded a a did no to i Tell you to postpone Tea Goose re Centaur looked perfectly amazed. Quot coarse you Dia of and i did Quot did what a shouted the Captain. Quot postponed the Goose a Cordin to the passenger Here begin to scent the joke and burst into a loud laugh. Even the Little Captain was somewhat mollified and requested Centaur to explain himself. Quot Well a a said he Quot you ordered me to Cook de fish and postpone do Goose. Now Sigri cultural.

By Golly i provided in of third Clave to Conte did no to know no hint bout it but Tele or even in a ing House. It happened that during the passage we wore Bce Almod one Day upon a part of the coast which waa known to be excellent fish ing ground and the Captain with a View of course of saving a Dollar or two ordered Tho inc to bring out their fishing tackle and try their Luck. This was soon done and Aura enough a Largo Quantity of Tho finny tribe were soon transferred from their aqueous abode to the deck of the ship to the Infinito satisfaction of Tho Little a Kipper and the no Small Delight of the passengers who anticipated for that Day at Loyat a pleasant change of Diot. In the course of the morning the Captain took occasion to enlarge upon the delicacy of the fish caught in that locality and closed by asking Quot what say you to a fish dinner to Day ladies and gentlemen a everybody said Quot of by All Means Quot and so it was arranged that Tho Bill of fare that Day was to comprise fish Only. Now attached to Tho ship waa a negro Cook a Aleck oily and rather Good looking negro who was called centaurs a name which he obtained in consequence of s curious fancy he had of sitting astride of the Bowsprit whenever it blew hard and fearlessly retaining his position no matter How madly Tho vessel pitched and tossed amidst the turn uncut Waves. As this somewhat approximated to a daring act of horsemanship Tho name of Centaur was considered to be a very appropriate one and with which the negro was by no Means displeased. After the passengers had agreed to the fish dinner i chanced to be on Tho forecastle not far from the Galley when the Captain came Forward and looking in Sung out Quot Centaur Quot Quot Aye Aye say replied that personage. Had trouble enough Don t want to postpone anode everybody laughed heartily at centaurs explanation and even the Captain could not help smiling. Quot be off you Blasek Blockhead a he said Quot and Send Jimmy ducks Tho Darkey was off in a twinkling and there being sumo curiosity As to tins new style of cooking we tried the Goose but for the life of us we could not Tell whether to were eating fish flesh or fowl. Jimmy soon afterwards appeared and was com. Polled to repeat the directions to Luid Given 1 to Tho Cook forgive less being extended to1 him Only on condition that lie should eat the whole of to Goose and i was appointed a committee of one to see the sentence duly carried out. The punishment however did not seem to be very severe for in fifteen minutes nothing but a Skeleton remained of the much abused Goose. Quot my he yes a was his exclamation when he had completed Tho task Quot if that a a postponed Goose i wish the Captain us have one postponed every week. The dress in however might be varied so at to be a Letle More Quot Cook a Large mess of fish to Day Lor the Cabin passengers dinner and Dye hear postpone that such were the captains directions to which the Cook replied Quot All right say Quot after the Captain s departure poor Centaur seemed to be greatly troubled Ond Sera died his Wool in Tho most vigorous and determined manner. 1 overheard him asking himself Quot what do do bail to mean by cooking de fish Aud postponing de Goose ? i Bou Oil sob Bora i buy Agee if not More i Ben in big hotels and Little hotels Ian and boy for be or so Long if not longer Dun Dat an by Golly Dis do first time i cd bar Lierd of Post Cunt no o Goose.

A a a it a a wonder if Jimmy ducks Eicr Beerd of it he knows most Cabery Jimmy ducks was Ono of Tho Crown a real Cockney and like every one born with in Tho sound of Bow Bells considered himself to be a sort of walking encyclopedia. If to did no to know hot least pretended to do so and too often i am sorry to say pretence is permitted to pass current. Just As Centaur concluded his ruminations Jimmy Aud one or two others of the Crew passed the Galley door and the bewildered Cook rushed out and anxiously inquired of the Oracle if he knew How to postpone a Goose ? now Jimmy was somewhat sensitive and probably thought Tor the moment that Tho term Goose might apply to himself and that there waa s Covert joke in the remark for he waa evidently Uken Aback and his face began to flushed get Good if bits. Quot Man i a bundle of he my this is the Sage remark of some philosopher who had probably made for himself a heavier Burthen than it was altogether agreeable to carry through the world. Did you Ever Stop to think that you Aro every Day picking up something to add to the bundle which you arc to Bear about with you As Long As you live ? if you were collecting a package of articles which you could handle or weigh Bow careful you would to to avoid such is were very heavy or that might Hurt you with their Sharp Points or rough edges. Von would consider it foolish in any Oue to select any but Light and arc Pablo materials if he could have his Choice and if no one need to carry those which Are heavy or in any Way disagree Cable. Yet that is what Many a forlorn looking boy is doing. Poor Fellows they Oro loaded Down with n weight that Sampson himself could hardly have carried.

Thia i consider one of the most difficult but onto of the most useful lessons a Young Man can j lot let tax. The Boston cultivator has an article shich to Transfer to Nur columns country Pix it pc generally pay too Little attention to applying themselves with Early vegetables., a hot bed costing but a trifle would enable an in Lieuary family to have plenty of lettuce cabbage tomatoes cucumbers melons egg plants etc., two or three weeks earlier than they could be obtained from opt n culture Only. For this latitude tins is about the right time to make hot Beds. Too Mode of making them vanes some whet but the following May answer for common cases horse manure a which has been kept in a Heap and turned Over and Well mixed together it it voral Days before being placed in the bed a in the Best material. A sheltered situation Shoum to ii oxen especially one open to the Sun and screened from the coldest the ground is i site dry a pit ten Inch or a foot deep May he dug but if it is wet the bed raised by scattering the manure Over it evenly with a Fork and beating it Down in order to have it sufi count by solid especially at the outside where the Frame will rest. Unless Tho manure in quite wet it will to Best to Sprinkle it with n in Tenn pot As it is Laid up.

It is a smooth lath of Wood about two Feci Long which is to to thrust into different parts of the manure and then draw out and grasp quickly by thu hand. A sometimes the heat is found so violent that in addition to raising Tom sashes several holes Tun St he opened in the pile of dung by Means of a Large stake or crowbar in such n in inner that they can be filled up with Hoy or dung when no longer necessary.
