Was he uot the richest American, or, at any rate, the most liberal, who had taken up his abode at the T^anghani this year? There is some pleasure in waiting on ajfcnlleinair who tips iialf a sovereign as ft-coJy as an Eiiglisli-man does a shilling! Mr. Jonathan Iajo was evidently a millionaire, and a man wlio understood how to enjoy himself. His wife was A thin, overdrassed woman of forty, whose face had once been pretty, but that was long ago, and whose aim in life, being childless, was the acquisition of new clothes and jewelry. She never tired of I’lianging her dresses, and wajs rarely neen wearing one a second time in imhlic. Mr. I>ec liad a passion for sending telegrams. He seldom wrote, a letter, but bfiinbarded his friends wllli messages on matters of no importance— ahvays, to do liim justice, prepaying a reply. One day—it was one of London’s horrid days, and an east wind was blowing—.Mrs. Iaíc observed: a“I l an’t see the use of paying a shilling for a telegram tlpat nobody cares to get.” “And what’s tlje use of giving forty guineas for a dress tliat nobody cares to see?” retorted Mr. IjCU, whieii caused his wife to flounce the one s1k> was then wearing into Die neaivst ann-fhair, where she devoted her attention to the last fashion-hook. But one day there eanie a telegram which had crossed the Atlantic, an^ the news it contained, whether it were good or bad, causctl !Mr. .loiia-tlMtn T/'C to take an afl'cctionate leave of his wife, previous to starting on a short journey. Tlie wording of the. message was this: “English gent has got the papers.” • • • « • « # Among the woods aud hills of Surrey stands a fine old atone mansion belonging to Sir Andrew Gordon, In the libiary of the house the meml>crs of the family were a.sscinbled one evcniHg, and the family consisted of the old bai'onct and hi« sou Ardiibald, an antiquated aunt of tl»o latter. Miss rnjrottiy Gordon, anil Constance Gwyn, Sir Andrew’s w’ard^ a beautiful idrlof licarly eightocn. **Thcre will 1^ a storm to-night. Hark how the wind is rising!” said liliss Dorotlty, with a shiver. “It’s a mercy your travels are over, Andrew.” “Yes,” said the old man, holding his bauds towaftl the fire; “I am better pleased with the safety of inv own stone walls than tlic licst mail steamer that ever crossed the Atlantic. But now I’ll ring for lights, aud Archie, my boy, come over and try to understand some of the mysteries contained in these ycUow jiaiifp.” Archie, a handsome, fair-haired fellow of twenty-throe, had been resting at full Iciigtli—and that was over six feet—on a comfortable sofa, watching la/ily the charming fl^irc of his father’s wal’d, who iiersistcntly looked every w’ay but his, “ I’ll come; but I don’t suppose I ihall make anythii^ out of them,” be answered, rising slowly. “My boy, it is most iiiii>ortant— quite a fnrtuue for you I Your ))oor mother never knew of it,” were the wqi’ds Constance heard aa she sat idly in her low chair near the fire. “Tlie paport arc woilli two thousand a year! iliat rascal who has kept tlicm hack would give something to know where they are now,” chuckled the old baronet, as he spread out the crackling letters and a large sheet of pairhment on a table, the butler meanwhile arranging a reading lamp to suit his master in so leisurely a manner as to call forth an impatient cxulaniatioii of “ That wiU do Í that will do!” SimmolH rcsi)cctfully took tlie hint, and now busied hiins<>lf with the heavy curtains, having noiselessly closed tlio shiiitcrs. ‘There is a.shoeking draught,” iiiur-miirod Misa Dorothy. “Don’t you feel it, Constance ?” “Not a bit,” replied Constance, laugning as elio rose to get her work-lm'hket;“but the wind will get in such a night as tiiis.” himmons retired, and Archie observed : “I’m awfully glad that fellow is leaving—he walks like a cat!” “IiKieed,” cried Miss Dorothy, qnerulouslv, “1 tliink yonr father does wrong to part with him; we hao’c never had so quiet a servant.” “Never mind the man—attend to me!” cried Sir Androw. “You must l>articularly try to remember tliis.” Archie, only oiitAvanlly listening, was exhibiting some of those provoking symptoms which a lover shows after there has been a cloud in the atmosphere, and the lady has inuiiaged to get the best of it. Constance Gwyn seemed to reincni-her soinetliing, and left (ho room. When slic returned, after a quarter of an hour’s absence, the butler had cii-tcroil with a liny of glahses and the requisites for Sir Andrew's “nightcap” of whisky toddy. The baronet folded (he papers into a iieut hiiiullc, and looked them in an old-fasliioneil cahiiut. “Tliey will he -lafeherc to-niglit; tomorrow I will take them to the lawyer’s,” he saiil, placing the key iu hU jiockct. Then turning toward his wniil, he in<]uircd, “How is Gelert, fair lady ?’’ “I don’t think lie is well. Sir Andrew. I’ve just been to sec him.” “f’onstancc!” cried Miss Dorothy, scMiidalixed, “have you been out to the dog-keimel at this hour, and on such a night?” “Yus. Miss Dorotliy. and it is much too cold for the poor follow to be left out there.’’ “Now, my love !*’deprocatcd the old l.ndy, waving one delicate hand in token that her will Wi^s law’, “never mention the idea of bringing that enormous dog into tlic house.” I'he ghost of a pout came into Cou-stalice’s sweet face.* “I’liere, thero,” said Sir Andrew merrily, “don’t frot,C!i>u8lance. Gelert shall have a skilled iihysieian to-mor-row’, if you think him ill. I shouUln’t mind his coming into the house, hut our. tyrant hero, you see!" and he shrugged his shoulders. “Achie,” softly whispered the girl, as he lit her candle for her, “will you see (ielert ?” aud she raised her beautiful gray eyes .aiqiealinglr to his. A merry look of triumph passed over his face. "Yes, if you promise not to play chess witli the curah* to-morrow.” “01», don’t be silly! If you think (iclort is ill. bring him in.” “Ill or wcir, I'll scud him to your room in half an'hour, if you’ll say good *uigl»t civilly," at the same time drawing his fiancee behind a tali for a. silent embrace, which sent her^away blushing; A bj’ight fire burned in Constance Gwyn’s hed-room. 8hc put on licr drcssing-gOwn and dismissed her maid as sooii as the latter had received Gelert from Archie Gonlon’s hands and brought iiim toJils mistress. The dog was only soekiiig company, and not ill. Ho looked the piclure'ot oou-teiitment as he lay at Constawe’s feet, and feeling .wakeful, sat quietly reading—(,hou^ between the page and her eyes came np Arcliio’s face. The ho'nsc had long l»eon still, when the clock iu the corridor struck one. Gelert at tlic moment raised his huge head and listened attentively. Constance closed her hook, and won-dcretl W’hy the dog still kept his intent look ; it made her slightly nei-v-oiis, and she began tp listen too. Certainly there w’as a sound as of a window' in the libraiT, just beneath her own room, being oi>ened. Tlie wind aud rain inado «> wild a sound that slie w ould have banished the tiiought of anything but these, had It not been that Gelert half rose to his feet witli a low growl, “lite quiet, Gelert!” she whiéperctl; for she feared he would hark, and so reveal to Miss Dorothy his forbidden preaenee. Gelert’i only answer W’as to fook >nriieatly at his mistress, pricmiis ears again, aud walk slowlv to the door. Constance went into the corridor to listen. The onlv person near her was norvou.a- Miss t)orothy, whom she dreaikülttr fotise. Taking firm hold of Helerfs collar, she softly reached the top of tlic grand staircase, aiid a gleam of moonlight, which burst through the stormy clouds, lit iiptvlth a weird light the i>ortrait» that lined the w’all, aud then as’suddeuly faded. Ill tlie darkness Gelert drew bis mistress to the staircase, showing increased anxiety to make her under-staiMl that there was a cause for his excitomeut. Conalaiico leaned over the baimjstor. The door of the library W’as partly open apd a faint light w'as ill the room. In a. moment a thought of tho paiiers Sir Andrew had hist brought from America flashed on Constance; she rememl)«rod that they w’crc of importauce to Archie, «nd that some one else would he glad to get them from him. Whispering a Tcw’ wonls to quiet the «log, she oropt softly down the broad stone staircase, aud paused near the door. Throtigh tlie cracks she saw that tuvo men stood at the far end near Sir Andrew’s cabinet, aud it w’as o len. A strange courage came to the g rl. Slie knew that if she could cross to the corner by the opposite window, thero Avas a In’ll there Avhich coiimiunicntcd with tlic wing where Sir Aiidroiv slept, aud Avhich would hIw) arouse (lie servants. In another iiiouient she had stoui>ed and clasped one arm round the dog’s neck, and he seemiMl to know her Avish, for he craAvletl stealthily bcálde her into the riMim. They liad nearly crossed it Avheii Gelert drew a'|)anting breath, Avhicli startled one of the men. He quickly turned and aimed a pistol at Constance. In an instant she loosed Gelert .ind sprang at the- helj-r-hoard the peal ring out, a pistol shot tired, and a dog’s furious Avorrying—then fell unconscious on the floor. “lIoAV quiet you all are!” and then Constance thought she had not said it—such a faint voice it sounded. Aud Avhat l)od Avas this Avith grout green curtains? Surely Miss Dorothy’s! And the room Avas dim so, Aviien Miss Dorothy crojit to the side of the l»c<l, Constance could not see tliat her face Avas wet Avith thankful tears. “.My love, you are in iny room because I am mirsiiig you.” “Have I been ill? said the Avcak A'oice again. “Yes, dear, hut don’t talk.” And Miss Dorothy slipped UAvay to come hjiok Avlth (hc'old doctor and Sir Ami row. The natient’s eyes wandered toAvard the door. Sir Andrew Avhlfqicred a fcAv Avords to tho doctor. “()h, tliere's somebody else, is tliere ? M'cll, lie may come ¡ust for u miiiu*'* ’’ The “somebody’' had been outside waiting. “My darling,” he Avliisi>cred, holding the Aveak little hand. Constance looked np in his face, trying toremcinl)er something. “DM we quarrel about—chess—or somebody ?” “Oh, that’s all right,” aiisAvercd Archie, eagerly. “You cheek mated me.” “ Well, but who was shot ?” “That Avill do iioav, my dear,” said the go<>d doctor, hastily, inotiauiug all but Miss Dorothy away. “If you aro a good girl and go to sleep, you shall talk to tliom ail hy-and-hy.” In the library Sir A miró AV told the fulloAving to his son. “When I was tAventy-oight years of age I Avas still de)>ciideiit on my uncle, AA’ho, Ihough he could not keep tlie title from me, had the pOAvx’r oü alienating the property. He Avished me to marry his daughter, hut Avliilc staying in Paris 1 fell in lovs Avitli a beautiful young American gilt Avho Avas studying at a school there.

Her brother, Jouathau Lee, saAV me iu my deep afilic-tiou, and urged uimu» me that l»e could acquaint all Ai»»eiica»» trieuds and save me a sori’OAvful journey. A year ago I learned that you W’crc entitled to the half-sharc of some mining iiropcrly Avhich had been left to Jonathan Lee and his sistci’, or, in cA’ei»t of their death, to you.

The other hired n»ie-croant escaped, but I think Gelert must have hurt him.” Constan^ is lying on a sofa in the drawing-i’ooin, looking very lovely if a little frail. Archie is by her side, a»»d Gelert rests his huge head against her hand. “My darling, the doctor’s ordei s are iinniiMliate change of air for yoAti A month ago I begged you to nani^ the day, so now you Avill pioinise jto agree toa very quiet weddii»g here a Avock* or two hence, and then 1 Avill take you abroad.” No answer, and the girl nusmi one hand to cover her face, Avhich it could not do. “Tell her to say ‘Yes,’ Gelert!” said Archie, laughingly I'aisiiig the gi’eat dog's paAVS in 8ui»plication. “May Gelert come too ?” “To be suro; and here comt-e my fatlier to Itear the glorious ncAvs and to prevent our good Aunt Dorothy fussing about trousseaux I” One more telegram reaches Mr. Jonathan Ijce, aud it convinces liim that he Avill do Avell to be thankful for mercies received, and to haste»» to his native lai»d, there to a»Tai»gc for the regular disburscn»ei»t of half his income from the miucs in favor of his young English iicphcAv, whom he Avon Id never sec or hear of, unless he failed in the above an*angements. “We will start for An»crica.to-nior-roAv!’! comuieuctd Jonathan Lee to his Avifc. “Oh, my!

WHEN NOT TO MARRY. Daya Tliat. Are I’nftsvorable fur Marriage Contracts. [Boston Glolsj.l “I dreamed last uight my brother Avas dead,” said one of two shop girls tripping doAvn Winter sti-cet “That’s a sign thero’s going to be a marriage in the family,” said her companion. “Did you cry ?” “Did I? My gootlnes-s I should think .so. Who wouldn’t?” “Then you ought to have couutetl the tears, and just as many tears a.s you shed it’s just so many days before you’ll be married. “WIiA’j hoAV fuuiiA’. Did you ever try it?” “M’hat a question, foolish! I ain’t married, am I ? But then I cried lots ami lots, and I couldn’t count ’ejn, and’s just as avcII, for ’sjiosc it had come on a Fi iday. That’s an aAvful unlucky day.” “Oh, don’t talk about luck. There’s my cousin in Salem, she Avas married 01» Sunday—they say tliat’s the best of all—and Avliat luck did it bring her ? A miserable hnshand, a divorce case, isn’t much for luck.” Ovei’hearing all of Avhlch n»c Glole statistician Avas reminded of a cHih ping stored in his arohi\’cs Avitli the old play-bills and tin articles cut out to save that Avill ncAcr be Avaiitcd until the next day after they arc hiiriied. According to the clip])ing, Avhich Avill be read Avith interest in vicAV of the approaeliiiig leaj) year and a prospective matrimonial boom, there are thir-ty-tAvo days in tho year on which it is unlucky to marry, upon tl»c authority of a manuscript dated in the fifteenth century. These days arc January 1, 2, 4, 5, 7, 10, 15; February 6, 7, *18; March 1, 6, 8; April 6; 11; Mav 5, 6, 7; June 7,    15; July f>, 10; August 15, 19; September 6,7; October 6; November 15, IG, and Decomhcr 15, IG, 17. Gonsequently January is the Worst mouth and October the best mouth in the year for marriage. The records shoAV, hoAV-cver, that in Boston, and iu fact throughout Ncav England, November is the banner month for matrimony, October holding second place in nuptial faA’ur. For thhs Thauksgiviiig Ihiy is maiiiiy responsible. It has l)cen conseeraied to marriage festivals for many generations. Fast dav is anothor faA-oritc day for coRnulftai A’cntiiros, and Avith a largo proportion of our iMipuIation Easter Sunday is regarded as an auspicious occiuuon for the Avelding of the matrimonial fetters. I'housands of couples liave Avedded New Year’s Avcek, unwilling the risk they ran i^s aliovc set forth ; and it is hardly to be expected Uiat the publication of this list Avill increase the miinher of hapfw families or lessen tho regular long roll of divorce suits iiIK)ii llie dockets of tl»e courts.

About forty-six years ago a farmer named (!larke left the shores of England for Tasmania for the ptir[»ose of fanning, taking Avltli him considerable capital, and being, in addition, ren^'kahlc judge of sheep and cattle. He appears to have failed in that island, and as the Tasmanians were fonning a iicav settlement on tho shoyes <»f tho great Australian continent, iu*ar Port Phillip, he determined to try his fortune there.

Although somewhat central and convenieiit the house docs uot stand in the fashionable q»iarter of the city, as those boundaries )»ai^ lately been draAvu, aud there is-jioM»iiig imiwising or ostentatious about the -cstahlishmcut. Siiici' their recent visits to New Mexico, Senator and Mrs. l.<ogan have a«‘-cnUlulated i|iiuiilities of Navalo uyd Zuui blankets ami pottery, ami iiiaiiy Indian curiosities, Avith Avhich their rooms are dcciuatcd. Portieres of Navajo blankets hang at the door-Avays, ami hright-eolored Zuiii hlank-cts are thi-oAvn oAcrthi chairs and sofas, and other siieciinens of alsirlg-inal art lend to the odd collection. Large photographs of President Arthur, General Grant and others aroon the Avails and floAvers constantly i>er-fume the air. No other oflkial of the sumo stBtiun and proiuimiuve livea m simply as Senator Logan, ami with all the iiiere.triiig consideration ami social importance he has not altered his style of living. From the Ihesident doAvn every one seeks to entertain them, and during tlie winter tluw arc contested for as tt»e stars of tho many great fdinuer parties. Mrs, ix>gan hohls larger recei»tiuns than any other .Senator’s Avife, and !»as more enthusiastic admirers among; her own sex than alinust any other Avonian hero. In the days of Avoiiian’s sutTrago she Avill be the ^topular candidate for every olfico Avitiim female gift; ami, from her long oxiicriciiee as confidant, prime minister, chief counselor ami private secretary to her hushund, cun manage a campaign and all the ofiicc-seekers better than any Democrat yet heard of. When (he Sachems and the Aviseacres come to consult the Senator, Mrs. Lognii is alAvuys included iu (he conference, aud her keen iwiie-tration ami intuition cut lialf Die knots that himF them in. She overlooks and diii'cts the Senator’s vast corrosiMuuh'iice, helps to urge the cause of his i>eiisioucr8 and ofllcc-seck«’rs, ami her energy has been tho secret of half of her husband’s laurels. Besides all these extraordinary gifts she ha.s sociable and domestic tastes, is dcvotwl to her clill-dreu and gruiidchildrcn, and wields tlic croihct hook ami embroidery lUHHlIo as deftly as she does the official pen, A^ 3 i’O'b'ty Avoman she is the siiiiiiii^ light and example to her sex. Sim never forgets a face imr a name, and this invaliiahtc gift is one reason for mm'h of hef general |K)|mlurity ln‘re, Avherc in the ceaseless str<‘amof strange and familiar faces |>eoplc arc apt to Im' forgetful and eonfuxed. Her kindness, and attentions to the shy aud iiiisophistieated who come to >ee her win <»ver every one of them as her (blloAVors true. More than any other .Senator’s Avife she nxsoeiatds Avilh her tlic Avlvcs of the Congressmen from i»er OAVti State in every Social entertainment, and the liulf-defiant hostility that exists Ih*-tweenilm families of Senators and lleprcM'iitativas is done UAVuy Avith for the IHiiiois (lelegalioii. This har-iiioiiA brings about a iileasaiit^Ms«m*! every TIinrMbiy afternoon. Avheu .Mrs.: Logan bobh her reecptlous, assisted by a group of ladii's from her own State. It is a marvel to all avI»o kuow her how, with all her otiier dutie» to attcml to, .Mrs. boiran niAvuys ii-tunis lier calls promptly, omits no necessary attentions to guests and cuiistitu-ents, ami keeps track of all the dinners ami entertainincnts at Avhieh they are e.xpccteil to he |ireseiit. If any of the Avild prophecies for lx>gan for LS8-1 conic (rue, tlm White House ; Avill rceeive a mi«tross worthy of it. ¡ ami the most lemarkahle woman in social ami public life Avill attain a dc-| served ami rredltabic prouiinemc in | that couiK'i tion.    | The Bait of the Fi»*hcrinan.
