So i match the River winding through the misty fading Plain bitter Are the tear drop a blinding. Bitter useless toil and pain bitterest o All the finding thut my dream was fun he and vain a word in season. An encouraging Story for discouraging times. Kilty Seo if you can do anything to keep this child still Suid mrs. Ferguson to her Halle daughter who had just brushed dres sing and was hurrying to lie her shoes.

Like some richly illuminated manuscript of cloistered Art the wonder Book of nature spreading out its autumn pages in the r brilliancy of mingled colouring every Mountain is a swelling Mound of jewelled Lustre and every Vale and clump of Wood land a blending of Rich Rainbow tints Over which a Bright Haze is spread just As the old Missal painters used to can Opy the Heads of saints and apostles with a Halo of Golden Light 1 he Hoar fros t covers the Meadows in the Early morning and lies in Crisp sparkling wreaths upon the fences and barn roofs while a sky of the deepest Blue is beginning to soften under Tho Sunshine. Not a Leaf quivers and the Pale cottage smoke curls up in a straight unwavering column through Tho frosty air while cloudless of Mist rest lingering in the Lake or creeping lazily up the hillsides. I Here is exile ratio in the air and a new Lite in the world that comes careering from the Northwest bearing Frost on its wings and brightness to the autumn Woods.

From the London Diogenes. Apple fritters a Romance. Soyer the great Cook has written a novel in which the Art of the Kitchen is set Forth in rather novel manner. The two heroines go among the poor and impart the secrets of the chef. Although this Book ought to be in every gentleman s Kitchen still we do not think that m Soyer has made the most of his subject. Could he not in his edition give us a Tew scenes something like the Loiiow-8 l it was a Lovely night. The warm breezes flouted by Laden with the perfume of Ower Sweet incense rising up from Fea Ture s k the no the Moon shone brightly As a Bird s Eye covering the Earth i h its Hiya a rays until the landscape seemed silvered and pure As a wedding cake. Let us walk in the Garden said Chere Hortense clasping dear Eloise to her heaving bosom. In a few seconds the two Noble and enthusiastic girls were Neath the Orchard Trees. Do you receive those apples remarked Hortense scarcely Able to repress her emotion. Why this grief sighed the gentle Eloise. Then turning her Large Pale Grey eyes in the direction of the fruit she added in a disappointed tone i hey Are baking apples if i mistake no i they Are they Are i cried chert Hor tense bursting in of an agony of tears. Poor girl i they reminded her of her Home some moments elapsed before chert Hor tense could resume her wonted calmness. At length with an Effort she said for give me dear Eloise. I was silly very silly 1 hut whenever i see an Apple i always think of Vou must indeed have loved sighed Eloise loved 1 Aye child madly 1" continued Hortense. The Day we parted i remember we had Apple fritters for dinner. He himself prepared the Dainty for me. As he peeled and sliced crossway a Quarter of an Inch thick the Rosy fruit before him he breathed in my ear the first avowal of the love he Felt for Roe. He Tuen placed in a Bason about two ounces of flours Little Salt two Teaspoon Fula of Oil and the Yolk of an egg m listened by degrees with water and All the time he kept stirring up the com Pound will a spoon. 1 thought 1 should have fainted for my heart was dear Hortense exclaimed Eloise. A i Bow you roust have suffered 1" "11 is past sighed Tho Brave girl. Then resuming her Story she said when the whole formed a smooth consistency to the thickness of Cream he beat up the while f an egg till firm mixing it with the Batter i could endure Ray agony no longer. Al exis i cried beware Bow you trifle with met proceed you internet me greatly re marked Lhotse. A Bat was his answer Hortense with an Effort continued when the mixture was hot he put in the apples one at a them Over with slice As they were doing suddenly be turned toward me his face glowing with passion nay say not sol interrupted the kind Eloise perhaps the heal of the fire and not Assion had tinged his Cheeks. Heaven Grant your words prove True robbed the Loving girl i shall never forget the expression of his eyes. Hortense he whispered the Apple fritters Are now Cook d let us perhaps for the last time cat to Gether " for a few seconds Hortense was speech let s from grief. Rising from the Mossy Bank she gasped out Eloise 1 As you love me let u hurry Home i Hull die if we remain and the fritters enquired the gentle Eloise. They were excellent continued Hor tense in a Calmer tone. That evening be presented me with the receipt for making them together with a lock of hair which however formed no part of the receipt. Two hours afterwards he was on Bis a to London and the Reform a Lux but to this Day even the sight of an Apple makes Roe tremble. Alas such is the love of poor fond woman 1 hat night of Joise slept but Little. Elie was thinking Over the Story of the Apple Tot t3t on the marriage of Thomas Hawk of Mansfield Vermont to mis j.

A Gazette. The people is. James Allerton. This was a very interesting Case rendered so from the fact that the defendant acted As his own lawyer on the trial without hav ing the advantage of being one. Of Tho Legal to ,7 . A summing up of Wincn we Are Able to give nearly a verbatim re port with the exception of the actins was decidedly Rich and afforded much amuse ment for the Legal gentlemen present 1 he defendant who is a Small thin specimen of a Yankee was indicted for assault Aud buttery on Ono or. Dodder. The facts As divulged upon trial Are briefly As follows the defendant is in the employ Efthemo Naup Valley Forre Siburg and port Jurvie Plank Road company As a to i gatherer and resided upon Tho Road some Miles above pert Jervis. He and the complainant or. Dodder Are near neighbors on a sunday in february last the defend ant saw the complainant in the act of beat ing his defendant cows a Ong the High Way and As an mud cent Tor him to quit hurled a few stones at him one of which As the complainant testified struck him on the Back of his neck. The testimony being concluded the defendant addressed the jury As follows be Nilman or tub Juat i Don t know much about Law and since this trial has been going on. 1 have concluded that i ought to know a Little More. I ought to apologise perhaps for appearing in my own defence and will do so by telling Yoi that i feed one lawyer and hired another in this Case but they both come up missing when j need them most. I suppose i might have secured the services of some of these other Limhi of Tho that i see around me but having been cheated a two of pm i concluded to go it on my own Hook and Here i am i want to Tell you he fora i Tro further that it a not my fault that Thia Case is Here taking the time of this honorable court 1 Eibink of will Riva me credit for a Ellinor the truth -. D in i Bay it ought to Bave been tried be Justice of the peace it being better adn Terl to tha of aug h a court,1. Thau of this one. After this difficulty r hid t warrant for in hmm is Mimi in Cuddeback. Over in Deerpark. He then charged that i had insulted him but be or 6ix months Lias freshened ins Lon Linn Nyrl h uni. Says 1 1ml i Nill a and battered him. I believe there is some difference Between the two charges. Dodder says he swore to the complaint before Squire Cuddeback and 1 leave for you to say whether be tells the truth now in saying that 1 battered Bim. I was taken by a Constable before the Squire and either because the Justice was Kasharo de of what he bad already done or had t time to attend to it i Don t know which went Down. Two or three week after that i was arrested again and my wife having been confined 1 thought it Best a Dutiful husband to be around hum so Irittia he Trivino anon Rita for my an. Spearance. To court. Jou know gentlemen mat 1 am in me employ of the Mong up Valley Forrest Burg and port Jervis Plank Road company As a Gale keeper. This company seems had sufficient Confidence in my in Legrita and honesty to place me in that important Lalion. And even if 1 should receive 3.000 and steal of it that be tween me and the company and its none of dodder s business. Now when to Manv sent me in alone this Road collect dolls Thia dodder was one of the habitats i found Here in the Woods and will Sav for him that he is a l Ood specimen of the rest of the Popula Ion. But there in t any or Vliem that seem to appreciate the benefits of this Plank Road. It let out to civil taxation a Clara of Leonle who never before realized the idea Lher waa such a Thino a civilized life this dodder is one of them. It is a that anon after i moved thera. A Vounce Man. 17 rears old. Soma Down out of Mountain a an tha Plank Narinn Dav. A said she had never been out before. Rirl m,., in awhile Man. And after asking a few questions went inn in. A rum Thi. To wow waa nearest neighbor and a Good Deal nearer than i wanted him and i had t Heen there Long before i heard that he had been to ing about me to one of the directors i soon found out that he wanted to get son who waa sworn Here against me in place but be has t done it yet and you Don t convict me i reckon be wont very soon. It won t take Long to dispose of dodder no. 3. He testifies that he saw me throw three stones at his father and saw the Man on Bis Sava that he was in Hie own Bouse in. Urls. And had to look Over a Hill Twenty feet High and also Over three lab Fence and two atone Walla. Weill if be tells truth All i wish is that i bad Young Den eyes lie u be Rummy remarkable boy and can t consistently deny tits fat 1 am willing to admit that i done wrong r to throw stones at dodder Ami i apolo Gia to All the world and this county or Licul arly Lor it.

I will Appeal from the decision to the court of High heaven itself before 1 will submit " " to it now gentlemen you saw or. Dodder and heard him swear against me. I asked him a great Many questions and t was sorry to hear him answer As he did i might Havo asked him if he did t kill my eat and if he did t Stone my chickens because they trespassed in his Woods where actually the rocks Are so thick that the brakes can t find their Way up through theron but then t knew that he would deny it end it would Grieve to to hear him. He admits that he was driving my three cows tip the Road and that he struck at one of pm but says it was with a Small switch. Have proved that this switch was a pole about ton feet Long and about three inches across the but end and i have also proved that when he struck the cow fell it is True my witness could t swear that the stick hit bar be was so far off but take the blow and fall together and we can guess the rest if you gentlemen should see my Point a gun at a Man and pull the trigger see the Flash and hear the report and at the same time see the Man drop 1 think that you would say that 1 shot him although j of might not see the Ball strike him. Now the fact is gentlemen that on Sun Day i was lying on my lounge in my House when my wife said to me that dodder was chasing Ray cows. I jumped up and pulled on my boots and went out of doors and saw dodder and the cows coming up the Road.

I Eung out to him dodder Stop but he did t obey my order and i just threw Stone in Tho direction which went about ten Teel Over Bis head at me same Lime go ing towards me. He Psid no attention and i Sung out again dodder Stop still be did l mind me and men just men i threw another Stone but on he came and on i went Ana i threw me Mira Stone Nicu to says hit him on the Back of the neck.
