Forty three years ago there lived in Ibe Vicinity of Manchester Van two no n by the name of Bown Aud another brother in Law to the downed by the Nam of Colvin. These three men lived with their families in lug Cabin upon a new territory a Little out of the Way of neighbor where they often worked together in Clearing the land or planting and tending their crop. A it was then the Universal Suatoni in that now total abstinence slate to drink whiskey to excess it followed As a matter of course that there was an occasion quarrel and sometimes a Drunken Row such As would Pas Muster even at this Day in new York. Our in Formant elated also that the women were not exempt entirely from spiritual influences. Kach of the parties had children we believe at any rate Colvin bad several and Louie of these in his Drunken moments he denied the right of calling him father and this produced quarrels Between him and Hia wife. In these As the Bow ties alleged he shamefully belied and abused their Aister 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 brother 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 secreted the missing Colvin. To All inquiries the same tale was told that be had 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 institutions then that they Are now. The Bownes acknowledged that in the quarrel one of them struck Colvin a pretty severe blow on the head with his Hoe but that it did not disable Hin because he immediately walked of and went directly into the Woods hat Leas and Coal less 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 his murder that he had or it 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 was severe or not. They Only knew that blood flowed freely from it but that he walked away As Strong As Ever. Of course no indictment could be found against Collin s supposed murderers be cause the strongest proof of his death his Corpse was undiscovered and thus the Case rested for seven Long years everybody his wife included looking upon his children As 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 disappear since Dine in a in Emma morn 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 Aud overgrown with Bushes and Briers some j buttons sworn to by the widow its having belonged to the coat that Colvin wore upon the Day he was murdered. A Jack me 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 Bow net because they knew he did not Wear Hia coat away. Of the bom being those of Tho murdered Man there waa a doubt because men of Good judgment testified they were too old and Liat if Colvin a they would not Only be Aoud but More of them. Where waa the remainder of the Skeleton Tina question waa often put but never answered. And to the two Bowne were indicted and put upon their Trul Lor murder. Then All theae contradictory statement a made in even Yeara were introduced and contracted with their Amaer Tationa of that moment when they were in ironed with danger and Aux iou to escape a charge of which they were nut guilty a far a of intentional murder although fully believing that Colvin had died from the Flecta of that affray. A usual in All Carea admitting of doubt there a a party in their favor which waa not entirely silenced by a verdict of guilty of murder in Firat degree against Tho elder brother who truck the blow with the Hoe a waa proved that he acknowledged to Gether with Treala made against Colvin a life and a verdict of manslaughter or a Ceas wry to murder against the other brother under which one waa sentenced to be Hung,1 and the other to the state prison for life. But these doubt were All removed when it came out alter the conviction and while the one sentenced to be Hung waa awaiting the tune tiled for Hia execution that to bad Conlea aed to the murder. Thia conf Aaion duly prepared by Home one who bad acce a to the pria Ouer waa Ublia hed and settled the care against the Doubter. In the meantime the other brother who had gone to Hia life waa looked upon a a hardened villain because he Peri Ted in a averting their innocence. It waa an a aeration that availed Juat As much and no store than it did when they were borne Down by a Tornado of prejudice and con dieted without evidence of guilt. But Why did you make the conf Aaion t r 9 Ukita the convicted Man. Because lit still dear and i was cured hat that waa the Oul v Way to have it. 1 was told that if 1 would Only confess my might be commuted and 1 might join my brother. Anything i thought rather than the Gallows. I knew 1 had by to a wicked nun and 1 thought a lie to have my Lite a a not a Ery great Ain a it would give me More time for repentance. I could not read or write and a sircely knew what the paper contained that 1 waa told to put my name to. I Yoou found what it was wanted for. It waa not to have my life but to prove to my friends that my cond inns Tion waa Juau 1 soon found that i had Noth ing to Hope that 1 Muat die on the Gal while one is toiling in Piirsoo and the other within three weeks of death let us visit a a i House in new Jersey and look in upon a quiet pleasant scene where the heed of the family a Reading to those Gath ered around to hear the news which a new York paper affords them. He has Jost finished the Reading of a detailed account of the trial and conviction of the Bowles for the murder of Colvin. During the Reading the wife of the Farmer had her attention 7 much divided Between the internet she it in the account and the effect it seemed to produce upon an individual present a Man who usually Gare no indication of inter est in anything not immediately connected with the farm. Husband mid the wife did you observe Richard while you were Reading be acted he is a very singular individual waa the reply. To he waa. And or. Smith had Good reasons for Hia opinion. About seven year previous to Una time during or. Smith s absence with farm produce in the City Thia Man came to Hia House walking in with All the familiarity of Ono at Home making in quiries about family affairs and How they had All been during his absence in fact assuming in All business matters about the place the position of or. Smith a though he was that individual and had Juat returned Home after a Long journey. At first. Mrs. Smith waa alarmed but soon found that her new lord was an inoffensive and Hartles maniac. When or. Smith returned the new com or met him it the Gate invited him in and welcomed him to the House linked him it to would have the hone put up and stay All night and finally seemed to Toiuo to the conclusion that he had a right to stay from the fact that he was some one that had been attending to his affairs during his Long absence from Home for such the deranged Mau considered it. And in this position the new Comer not Only installed himself but continued for seven Long years a valuable labourer making As his Only recompense his food and clothing a privilege of calling everything his although willing to allow the real owner to transact All the business and handle All the Money. Tho Only name be was known by was Richard and he utterly refused to give any clue to who or what he 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 severe Cut on his head and whenever any allusions were made to it he showed Soine excite ment and sometimes anger. Otherwise he was docile contented and Happy never do siring to go anywhere Oft the farm. This evening during the Reading of the murder trial of Tho Bownes he had shown More in Terest than Ever observed before upon any Subj act unconnected with Hia Over Day occupation and this being observed by airs. Smith led to frequent consultations and queries coupled with attempts to elicit something from Richsrd that would connect j him with that affair but All without Suc Cess. It was about this time that win. M. Price became some Way cognizant of the Circum stances connected with this singular individual and having also read the account of the trial and conviction of the men As he thought upon insufficient evidence he Mado a journey on purpose to see the Man Rich Ard and elicit if possible something from him. Undoubtedly it was through the in fluence of or. Price that or. Smith took the course that to did for Tho More a thought of to strange of Colvin in Vermont and Tho sudden appear Ance of this nun in new Jersey and his mysterious conduct since and coupled that Willi the scar upon his head he determined to act perhaps to save the life of an inno cent 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 list How was lie to carry their Plana into execution ? Thia was with out letting another party into the Reret to a not to bring ridicule on Hui if he waa mistaken in Hia supposition to take Rich Ard to Man Cheater and Sec if any one there would recognize him after seven year a absence changed a he undoubtedly was in his appearance. Our philanthropic waa convinced from All he could get out of Rich Ard 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 waa no time to lose As Only three weeks now remained to the prisoner. We forget what stratagem waa used to induce the de ranged 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 Railroad forty years ago travel ing Day and night into some unknown re Gion without exciting any suspicion that their ultimate determination waa a Plau concerning which he never would hold any conversation. In Tho meantime the discussion of the innocence or guilt of the Man had broken out Freab As he had recanted Hia conf a Aion and insisted that he waa innocent. Besides to had a dream three times repeated that Colvin was alive and would make his appearance although a he said not until alter he was during Thia state of things there Wai a crowd St 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 arrives at a Village inn waa a Man who bad rather Finly maintained that Bonnes was guilty until Tho dream came out but being a believer in dreams his Faith Vas staggered and to said he did t know about Iun the stage Driver reined up at the door and the tin lantern of Tho Hostler opened the Blaze of a tallow Candle full in the faces of passengers is they slighted. Or. Smith alighted without exciting any remark. Not to his compan Ion. It was an anxious moment Foi or. Smith for there waa the spot where his suspicions were to be proved True and Hia Hopo to have the life of an innocent nun gratified or forever crushed. He said to Richard a be got out come let us hurry Ami get upper Belore the stage a tart As Rich Ard got out the Light fell in Hia face Blind ing i vision but enabling the crowd to Aee Hui to advantage. He waa startled at a sudden voc iteration of the individual who bad been troubled about the dream who exclaimed m8o help me god but there a Richard Twenty other men were present to confirm the a aeration and in the next minute the whole town might have been t a. Re to add confirmation for about after about pealed out on the night air col Vin Haa the doomed Man in the cell Liat Ned to wild commotion in the world outside to world that he expected to look upon to soon for the last time the Bella were ringing Shouta grew louder and approx acid the prison and now uie Braga Field piece give in note to the general Din.

Colvin waa us verbally recognized by All who had known him but obstinately refused to recognise nay one not even Hia wife and children and Inai ated upon going Home a he termed or.

He Reaia Ted Many Persu Vaiona to marry which Hia Frienda 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 Milcas of Tho Comfort of being nursed by woman s gentle care. Shortly after entering one of Hia circuits a Maiden lady also of Ripe year waa recommended to him and Hia Frienda again urged that he had better get married rep resenting that the lady named would proo ably not refuse to accept him notwithstanding his eccentricities.

Jii Nolc to account for it he Roar donned Hia dressing gown and with Hia Candle in Hia hand proceeded to invest Gato the cause. Anxious to redeem Hia property the owner Deacon i a after it. The rat at Fust continued Hia exertions but a Tho enemy gained upon him he changed Hia tactics and turned his front up Ward began to climb toward Hia opponent. Tina was just such an intruder As might with All Justice have been kicked Down stairs but so Stern was Hia air and so menacing Hia aspect that the gentleman hesitation ended in Retreat. Ilia feet being armed Only with Lippera to Loat heart and began slowly to ascend backward while the rat deliberately mounted alter him and thua steadily drove him Back to Hia bed room. The door of which he abut in the face of Hia foe and terminated the adventure by retiring to bed while the rat returned to his Well earned Booty. Of Susannah Harris fourteen Jura had the marriage Day appointed three several times and then went to the state of new York and carried Home another wife. Postponing a Goose. By a passive. Having Busin Cra at Mobile Tome time since 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 waa called the Rover. And waa commanded by a Sharp Little fellow a part owner and who waa therefore interested in making the trips \ a profitable a possible. The Para Eggers were not Long in nuking this Dia coutry for As a general thing a meaner table was never provided in the meanest of third class hotel or even in a cheap new York Board-1 ing House. It happened that during the Paa aage we j were becalmed one Day upon a part of the coast which waa known to be excellent Fiah ing ground and the Captain with a View of course of having a Dollar or two ordered the men to bring out their fibbing tackle and try their Luck. This was soon done and Sura enough a Large Quantity of the finny tribe were soon transferred from their Aque Ous abode to the deck of the ship to the in finite satisfaction of the Little skipper and the no Small Delight of the passengers who anticipated for that Day at least a pleasant change or diet in the comae of the morning the Captain took occasion to enlarge upon Tho delicacy of the fish caught in that locality and closed by making what aay you to a fish dinner to Day ladies and gentlemen a everybody said of by ill Means and so it was arranged that Tho Bill of fare that Dav was to comprise fish Only. Now attached to Tho ship was a negro Cook a sleek oily and rather Good looking negro who was called Centaur a name which he obtained in consequence of a curious fancy to 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 turbulent Waves. As this Somo what approximated to a daring act of horse Manship Tho name of Centaur won considered to be a very appropriate one and with which the negro was by no Meana displeased. After the passengers had agreed to Tho fish dinner i chanced to be on the forecastle not far from the Calley when Tho Captain came Forward and looking in Sung out Centaur Aye Aye a replied that personage. Cook a Large Mesa of fish to Day Lor the Cabin passengers dinner and d be hear postpone that such were the Captain s directions to which the Cook replied All right a after lilo Captain s departure poor Cen Taur seemed to be greatly troubled and acre died in Wool in thu most vigorous and determined manner. 1 overheard him ask inn himself what do Debbie he mean by Cookin de full Aud postponing de Goose ? i Ben on seb Bural Boyages if not More i Ben in big holds an Little hotels Man an boy for Eber so Long if not longer Dun Dat an by Golly Dis de first time i Ebber Heerd of Post Bunin a Goose. Dero s Pickin a Goose i now and drawing a Goose and muffin a 1 Goose an roasting a Goose an Bakin a Goose yes by Golly an boiling a Goose,1 Teo but postponing a Goose Don t Beebe i Dat Chen airs class de great Cook Dey talk about Cher Heerd of. It must be done do High or Dis child la git Souie kicks sure. Wonder if Jimmy ducks Eicr Heerd of it he knows most a cry Jimmy ducks was one of the Crow a real Cockney and like every one born with in the sound of now dells considered him self to be a sort of walking encyclopedia. If to did t know he lit least pretended to do so and too often i am sorry to say pretence is permitted to Pas 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 Post Pone a Goose ? now Jimmy was somewhat sensitive and probably thought Tor the moment that Tho term Goose might apply to himself and that there was a Covert joke in the remark for he was evidently taken Aback and his face began to Lush. Centaur however explained de Case is Dis you see. Cap n says to me Jis now says he Cook a Large Meas of fish for do Cabin passenger a dinner to Day an postpone de Goose in do Dat is Jis what Dis Nigger can t git t rough his Wool no How Flint postponing a Goose is of said Jimmy seeing through the affair and winking at his companions that is easy enough. 1 thought every fool knew my t ought so too said Centaur innocently an so i says to myself Jimmy docks ii Well you Sec said Jimmy looking very serious it in t a common or a very usual Way of cooking your Goose but when it is served up after fish and nothing to follow at Tho nobility s dinners or at the1 lord mayor s banquets then they postpone it. Now this is the Mode of doing it first pick the Goose As clean As possible then with a piece of lighted paper Burn the stumps of Tho feathers. After drawing the Bird you will stuff it with a mixture com posed of hard Boi de eggs chopped very Fine onions ditto apples ditto biscuit1 pounded into Small bits and portions of a fish previously browned on Tho fire. You will then put the Goose into a pot boil it for half an hour then put it on your spit roast it unil done and you will serve it with prepared Centaur listened with profound attention and noting carefully upon the Tablet of Hia brain Jim inv a directions started for the Galley highly elated. The affair waa of course kept profound secret and i would not have spoiled the sex Pec Ted joke for the world. Dinner time arrived and Centaur certainly won honors for himself by the style in which he served the us both boiled and Fried. Dish after dish bad disappeared and when every one supposed the meal to be concluded another dish waa placed before the Captain who on removing the cover to his great Surprise and indignation Dis covered the Goose his Wrath was not to be suppressed even in the presence of the Para Eggers and in a towering passion he shouted Send that infernal Cook aft poor Centaur entered the Cabin very i Greasy and Good Humoured having no suspicion of anything wrong Sod was consider ably startled by the question what do you mean you scoundrel by i ibis disobedience of orders " eyed orders a done Jia what you said a he stammered out obeyed orders you Black Rascal a mid i the Captain f Kratly astounded did i 1 Tell you to postpone the Goose a Centaur looked perfectly a mated. Course you Dia is an i did did what to shouted the Captain. Postponed the Goose a Cordin Lodi the passengers Here Bjornn to scent the joke and burst into a loud laugh. Even the Little Captain was somewhat mollified and requested Centaur to explain himself. Well maid he you ordered me to Cook de fish an postpone de Goose. Now i Webber postpone in ill my life an of course did t know no Hin bout it but Jimmy ducks lighten me on the Subjek an i Fuller exactly his ascription. To Golly i had trouble enough Don t want to postpone anode everybody laughed heartily at Centaur s explanation and even the Captain could not help smiling. Be off you Blaek Blockhead he said and Send Jimmy ducks Here Tho Darkey was Oil in a twinkling and there being some curiosity As to this now Stylo of cooking we tried the Goose but for the life of us we could not toll whether to were eating fish flesh or fowl. Jimmy soon afterwards appeared and was compelled to repeat the directions to had Given 1 to Tho Cook forgive less being extended to him Only on condition that to should cat Tho whole of Tho 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. My Hayes was his exclamation when he had completed Tho task if that s a postponed Goose i Wiah Tho Captain us have one postponed every week. The Dressi however might be varied to at to be a Letle More get Good Ilshik Man ii a i Rulle of this is the Sage remark of some philosopher who bad probably Mado for himself a heavier Burthen than it waa altogether agreeable to carry through the world. Did you Ever atop to think that you Aro every Day picking up something to add to Tho bundle which you arc to Bear about with you Long an you live ? if you Cru collecting a package of articles which you could handle or weigh How careful you would be to avoid Auch is were very heavy or that might Hurt Vou with their Sharp Points or rough edges you would consider it foolish in any one Toa elect any but Light and agreeable materials if he could have his Choice and if no one need to carry those which Are heavy or in any Way disagreeable.

Some strangers visiting a Down East Stato House last summer thought they had made a discovery viz., that to lure was such a Mineral As yellow Granite of which the Steps of the state Yousif were composed but they at iat discovered that this color had been produced by Tho experiments of tobacco spitters and the Steps seemed to be 1 dyed beyond All Hopo of renovation by scouring.
