Katie full of alarm for Hor Lover hopped out of bed and appeared with a flaming tallow dip. Peggy Flung her arms around tho Squires neck with a cry of terror and Jake was silent with amazement. Mrs. Bleke was the Only one who possessed her wits. She seized the Corn l rethought too.

Aud Jake Liis wife were so rejoiced at tho Prospect of getting rid of Peggy that they forgave their daughter and took will Dartmouth Home at tho end of the year. And in duo time Peggy and the Squire were made one flesh. To Ltd Story of the Jasmine. There is not a Plant or Flower says a Graceful writer upon Flowers in the but Lias a history and when this known it becomes doubly interesting. For instance the Jasmine. Cowper says a a tho Jasmine throwing wide Hor olo Gant sweets tho tech dark Green of whose varnished Leaf Makos Intro conspicuous Ami illumines mor6 tho Bright profusion of Hor scattered the Jasmine seems As though it had been created to express tho Quality of amiability. Wien first introduced into Franco by in tic Spanish navigators about tho year 1500, it was greatly admired for the lightness of its brandies and tho delicate Lustre of its Star like Flowers. It was deemed necessary to Placo a Plant so elegant am apparently ten tender in the hot House anon it was tried in tho orangery whore it grew marvellously Well and at length it was exposed in the open ground where it now grows As freely As in its native soil. A. # the flexible bran Olios of this odoriferous Shrub May be trained according to our pleasure it will climb and weave itself around our Trell Flod Arches and cover dead Walls with an Evergreen tapestry. It can be trained in any form and it lavishes upon us an abundant Harvest of Flowers of the most delightful perfume. Thon How be Tenor Whon in your favorite room Galos from your Jasmine sooth tho evening Bloom. This Beautiful Plant grew in Hampton court Garden at the Ond of the seventeenth Century but being lost there was known Only in Europe in the Garden of tho Gryd Duke of Tuscany at Pisa from a jealous and selfish anxiety that to should continue to to. The sole possessor of a Plant so charming and so rare he strictly charged his Gardener not to give a single sprig or Eveo a Flower to any person. The Gardener might have been faithful if he had not loved but being attached to a fair though portion less Damsel he presented her with Quot a Boquet on her Quot birthday and in order to Mako it More acceptable ornamented it with a sprig of Jasmine. The Young Maiden to preserve the freshness of Liis pretty stranger placed it in the Earth whore it remained Green until the return of Spring when it budded Forth and was covered with Flowers. She had profited by her lovers lesson and now cultivated her highly prize Jasmine with care for which she was amply repaid by its rapid the poverty of tho lovers had been a bar to their Union. Now however by tho Sale of cutting9 from tho Plant which love had Given her she amassed a Little Fortune which she bestowed wit i her hand upon tho Gardener of her heart. A the Young girls of Tuscany in veme her Ance of this adventure always deck themselves on their wedding Day with a Boquet of Jasmine and they have a proverb that a a she who is worthy to Wear a nosegay of Jasmine is As Good As a Fortune to her ought we not then to cultivate More generally hat Lovo first scattered abroad for Cotton observes How numerous Are the purposes to which it May to applied a a How jasmine3 spreads tho Silver floor to Dock tho Wall or a Avo tho _ Carrington one of natures poets makes it exp Restivo of sympathy it tho Jasmine droops above tho Hon Rod Doad a Arete sub wards account of Nis court Suli a a a a twas a Carm still night in All Natur was hush and nary Meffor disturbed the screen silent.

A a a us onto a Stull i of st. Mark s eve. Iii Iii hath a moral . I1y Thomas Good. St murky Sdiey is a 1 Estiva which has Beau us Survey on the 25tb of april in Catholic countries from Tima immemorial. The superstition ulu tiled to in the following Story was formerly pretty generally believed and vigils at tho Church porch at Midnight wore common. A a Hope it la choke the cell said. Master Giles the Yeoman and. Asho said it he banged his big red list on the old Oak table Quot. A a do say x Hope it la choke the cell the Dame Mado no reply. Sho was choking with passion and a lowly Sliver which was tiie cause of tho Dispoto. Much Lias been said and Sung cd Neering tho advantage of congenial tastes amongst married people but the quarrels of this Ivan tue couple arose Frum too great coincidence in their they were of a Little delicacy in question but the Damn had managed to secure tho morsel to herself. This was sufi a Point of of the members of tho House of tho legislature of now York rejoiced in the name of he had the Honor of representing tho county of Monroe and if his Sugao Ity us a legislator did not win for him to respect of his associates his eccentricities often ministered to their entertainment. One Day in tho midst of a Windy Harrangue that had become intolerable for its length and emptiness a a Gassy member from tho Metropolis st ipod. To take a drink of water. Bloss sprang to his feet and cried a or. Speaker. I Call the gentleman from new York too Dor _ the whole Assembly was startled and stilled the member from now York _ stood aghast with the Glass in his hand while tho speaker said _ a tho gentleman from Monroe will please state his Point of _ to which or. Bloss with great Gravity replied a i submit sir that it is not in Ordor for a Windmill to go by it was a shot beyond wind and water Trio.

Tallow Randy a diplomacy was pushed to its severest test but not a Whit Dis composed he turned to Madame de sit and replied a Madam you who know most things doubtless know How to two old limn picked up a half Dollar in the Street. A old Man that a mine a said a keen looking Rascal a to hand it a did thine have a Hole ?�?T asked the old Man. A yes a replied tho other smartly. Then it is not thine a mildly replied the old Man a thoth must learn to to a Little sharper next time my ic7&Quot a Ike a said mrs. Partington a How do they find out the diff Renoo Between the Earth and tho Sun a a of a Suid the Young Hope Ful a they calculate a Quarter of the distance and then multiply by Lieut to cause a storm of High words which properly understood signifies very Low Lau Migd. A _ their Neal times Seldom passed Over without some concoction of this sort. As sure As tho knives and Forks clashed so did they being in fact equally greedy and disagreed and when they did pick a quarrel it to the hone. It was reported that on Somo occasions they had nut even contented them Elvis with hard speeches but had come to self Hing pm taking to boxing Aud she to pinching thl5ugh in a far less amicable manner than a is practice by tho taker of snuff. On the present difference however they were satisfied with a wishing each other dead with All their hearts a and there seemed Little doubt of the sincerity of their aspiration on looking at their malignant faces for they Mado a i Merible picture in this Frame of mind. Now it happened Tiit this quarrel took place of the morning of st. Mark a Saint who was. Supposed of that festival to favor his votaries with a Peep into tho Hook of Fate. A or it was the popular belief in those Days that if a person should keep watch at Midnight beside the Church tho apparitions of All those Whu were to he taken by death to Loro tho next anniversary would he soon entering the porch. The Yeoman like his neighbors believed most devoutly in this superstition and in Trio very moment that to breathed the unseemly aspirations afm Esaid it occurred to him that the eve was at hand when by observing the rite of st. Mark he might know to a certainty whether this in. Christian wish was to be done of those that boar fruit. Accordingly Little before Midnight he stole quietly out of the House and set Forth on his Way to the. Church. In the moan time the Dame called to mind tho same ceremonial and having tho like motive Lor curiosity with her husband she also put on her cloak and Calash and set out though by a different path us the Samo errand. A _ the night of tho Saint was As dark an chill As the mysteries Hen its supposed to reveal the Muon throwing but occasional glance As sullen masses of Cloud wore driven from her face. Thus it fell out that our two adventurers were quite unconscious of being in company till a sudden glimpse of Moonlight showed them to each other Only a few Yards apart. Both through a natural panic became Pale As ghosts and both made eagerly toward tho Church porch. Much As Thoy had wished fur this vision they could not help quaking and stepping on tho spot As if turned to stones and in this position the dark again threw a sudden curtain Over them and they disappeared from each other. Tho two came to one conclusion each conceived Triau st. Mark had incur cd the other to himself. With this comfortable knowledge tho widow and widower elect hied Homo again by the roads they came and As their custom was to sit apart after a quarrel they repaired to separate ohm Bers each ignorant of tho others odours Ion. By and by being called to supper instead of sulking As aforetime they came Down together each being secretly in the Best humor though of the worst. Amongst other things 011 tho table Thero was a calf a sweetbreads being Ono of those cry dainties that had Ofton set them together by the ears. The Dame looked and longed hut she refrained from its appropriation thinking within herself that she could give up sweetbreads for one year and the funner Mado a similar reflection. After pushing the dish to and fro several Timos by a common impulse they divided the treat and then having supped they retired amicably to rest whereas until Thon they Hud Seldom gone to Bod without falling out. Tho truth was each looked upon tho other As being already in the our Elyard. On tho Morrow which happened to be the besides bub just roused himself out of n dream strictly confirmatory of tho late Vigil he did not scruple to Salute his wife Aud wish her Many Happy returns of tho Day. Tho wife who knew much As he very readily wished him tho same having in truth but just rubbed out of her eyes tho pattern of a widows Bonnet that had been submitted to her in her sleep. Sho took Good Caro however at dinner to give tho fowls liver to tho doomed Man considering that Whon to was dead and gone Sho could have them if Sho pleased seven Days in tho week and tho Farmer on his part took care to help Hor to Many titbits. Their feeling towards each other was that of an impatient Host with regard to an unwelcome guest showing scarcely a Bare civility while in expectation of Liis stay but overloading him with hospitality when Mado certain of his departure. In this manner they went on Somo six months without any addition of love Between them and As much selfishness As Ever yet living in a subservience to tho comforts of each other sometimes not to be found even amongst couples of sincere a affections. There wore As Many causes for quarrel As Ever but every Day it became less Worth while to quarrel so letting bygones be bygones they wore indifferent to the present and thought Only of tho future considering each other to use a common phrase a As Good As dead ten months wore Awny and the Farmers birth any arrived in ils turn. The Dame who had passed an uncomfortable night haying dreamed in truth that she did not much like herself in mourning saluted him As soon As tho Day dawned and with a sigh wished him Many years to come. Tho Fanner repaid her in kind tho sigh included Liis own vision having been of tho painful port for he dreamed of having tho headache from wearing a Black hat band and the malady still Clung to him Wii cd awake. The whole morning was spent in silent meditation and melancholy on both sides and when dinner came although tho most favorite dishes were on the table they could not eat. The Farmer renting his elbows upon the Board with his face Between his hands gazing wistfully it his wife. The Dame leaning Back in Hor High Arm chair regarded tho Yeoman quite As ruefully. Their minds travelling in the same direction and at an equal rate arrived together at tho same reflection but tho Farmer was tho first to give it utterance a theol a be missed Dame if Alico were to die a the Dame started. Although she had nothing but death at that moment before her Oyes she was far from dreaming of her own exit. He covering. However from the Shock her thoughts flowed in their old Chauvel Aud she rejoined in the same spirit i wish master thee May live As Long Asir. The Farmer indies own mind wished to live rather longer for at the utmost Henson Siil ered that Liis wife a Bill of mortality had but two months to run tho calculation i made him sorrowful during the last few months she had consulted his appetite bout to his humor and conformed her own inclinations to his in a manner that could Nover a supplied. Iii wife from being at first useful to him had become agreeable and at last dear and Asho contemplated her approaching Fate he could not help thinking audibly a that to should be a lonesome Man when she was gone the Dame this time Hoard the survivor ship fore boded without starting but she marvelled much at what she thought tho infatuation of a doomed in in. So perfect was tier Faith 111 the infallibility of st. Mark that she bad even seen mortal do Soave As palpable As plague spots on the devoted Yoonlin. Giving his body up therefore for lost a Strong sense of duty persuaded her that it was imperative upon her As a Christian to warn the Farmer of his dissolution. Accordingly with a solemnity adapted to tho subject a tenderness of recent growth and a memento mom face she broached the matter 111 tho following question a a a master How Bce st thee a a As Hearty As a Buck Dame and i wish thee the like a a dead silence ensued the Farmer was As unprepared As Over. Thero is a great fancy for breaking the truth by dropping it gently an Experiment that was never answered any More than with Iron Stone China. The Dame Felt this and thinking it better to throw the news at her husband at once Sho told him in As Many words that to was a dead Man. It was now tho Yentai a turn to to Stag cred by a parallel course of reasoning he had wrought himself up to a similar disclosure the Dames death warrant was just ready upon his Tongue when be met with Liis own dispatch signed scaled and Deli. Cred. Conscience instantly pointed out the Oracle from which Rico had derived the Omen. A thee Hast watched Dame at Iho porch then v the old cider Mill and the thief. The following is an extract from a a country margins a a series of articles which appear from time to time in to a a Azumny state ko-gister.�?�. However lot us pause Over it and take it Down slowly As tho the pippins in tho Orchard. # there Are memories that come clustering about these a a boys a these a pippins a and tho a a do you remember tho old cider Mill Friend margins Ami the old horse As lie travelled round round moving with a slow and dignified tread a a hitched a to the Long lever that turned the wooden Mill that crushed the apples into Puinice do you remember the great a a cheese in its Bandage of Straw beneath tho press and How when the great screws were turned in the massive Gallows Shu cd Frame tho Rich juice of the apples came gushing out and the Groat tub placed to receive it do you remember How Straw the urchins As Thev came along on their Way from school filled themselves with Sweet cider from the Bung of the barrel ? do you remember How in the Long Winter nights you sat around the fire place wherein logs Wero blazing and How the Pitcher of cider and the Platter it doughnuts were placed on the old Cherry table that sat out in the Middle of the Kitchen Anil How you helped yourself to Thor cider and the doughnuts pud How Happy each one wus As lie sat with his Pewter Mug of cider in one hand and doughnut in Trio other before that old fashioned Kitchen fire place those Wero pleasant times. But they Are memories now. And then the Apple pairings or a a bees a As they were called when the Young men and Maidens Cutno together to pare apples and talk and laugh and play old fashioned plays and say soft things to one another Aud cat pumpkin pies and to Lippy after tho fashion of the country people when you and i wore Young. Primitive times those wore Friend a Ai Argins and our proud daughters and City Dames would turn up their noses hugely Wero they to be present at an old fashioned Apple Bee such As they used to have out in old Steuben when the country was new and were primitive. Two remember when we were Young there was a favorite tree in our lathers Orchard which Boro Choice Winter apples. It was called the big tree because it was to largest a in the Orchard. The fruit of this tree was always left until the last and was gathered with great care. Thero was a wort Liless fellow living in the neighbourhood who Ohio year coveted a portion of tho fruit on tho a big tree a and was not deterred from its acquisition by tho divine commandment Dhoti not steal a a Quantity of the Noplos disappeared Ono night and the tracks of whoever stole them had a Strong resemblance to those made by tho heedless boots of our Dis honest neighbor. There wore two inseparable friends on the old Homestead in those curly Days tho Ono a a a coloured gentleman a by the name of shadrach who came to our fathers Possession in payment for a debt and who ran away regularly two or three times a year and then As regularly ran Back again just As his master began to indulge the Hope that he had got rid of him for Good. Tho other was a great dog half mastiff and half Bull of a Noble presence and fearless courage. A a drive a and a a shadrach a were inseparable. Their worked and played together slept together in tho same loft and shadrach Nover ate a meal while tho dog lived it least at Home without sharing it with his canine Friend. Lie would talk with a drive for hours when they were alone and although to did no to say much himself yet a a shadrach a said a Good Many things and Laid Down and argued out a great Many queer propositions against which a a drive uttered not a word of dissent. One Chipy night in october shadrach and drive had been out Lorig the Cornfields on in unsuccessful Coon he uhf in their return the dog dashed off through the Orchard and in a minute or two commenced Barking Ami Shad rach of course supposed he had treed a Coon on Ono of tho fruit Trees. Now shadrach bad an abiding Faith in spiritual manifestations and stood in mortal fear of the gentleman in again or anything else from our father Whilo a a drive and old a a shadrach a remained on tho farm. The highwayman a tho years 1750 and 1700, a scottish lawyer of Eminence made a journey to London. Al that period such journeys wore usually Dor formed on horseback and the traveller might either ride Post or if willing to travel economically he bought a horse and sold him at the end of tho journey. Tho gentleman above alluded to who was a Good horses As Well As an excellent horseman a had. Chosen tho latter Modo of travelling Aud had sold tho Steed on which he Rodo from Scotland As soon As in London. With a View to his return he went to Smithfield to Purchase a horse. At dusk a handsome Ono was offered to. Him at so cheap Arate that a was led to suspect that tho animal was unsound bus As he could discover 110 blemish he became tho purchaser. Next morning he set out on his Liis Hort o had excellent paces and tho first few Miles Road was Well frequented our traveller spent in congratulating himself on Liis Good Fortune in having Mude so Good a bargain. On Finchley common and at a place whore tho Road ran Down a slight descent and Upa similar ascent tho traveller Mot a Clergyman driving a Ono horse chaise. There was nobody in sight and the horse by his manoeuvre plainly intimated what Hud been tho profession of Liis former owner. Instead of passing tie chaise to ran close up to it and stopped it having no doubt that its rider would embrace so fair an Opportunity of exercising his vocation. Tho Clergyman never doubted the identity of tho equestrian produced his purse unasked and assured the astonished lawyer that it was quite unnecessary to draw his pistol Asho did not intend to offer any resistance. Tho traveller rallied his Steed and with Many apologies to the gentleman he Hud so innocently and unwittingly affrighted pursued his journey. The horse next Mado tho same auspicious approach to a coach from the window of which was levelled a Blunderbuss with denunciations of death and destruction to tho rider though sackless As i10 used to express it of All offence in word or deed.
