P&QSEECTUS ALTOONA TRIBUNE. 23P<38(0p Jil THE CASH SYSTEM ADOPTED I The Cheapest Paper in the Chanty I With the present number, the' Tribune hm en tered upon its third volume.' Commenced eta time when the confidence of the. citizens of Al toona in newspapers and newspaper publishers was considerably shaken, if not totally annihila ted, it has slowly bat sorely restored that con fidence, and now stands upon a sore foundation, and is universally acknowledged to be one of the fixed institutions of our town. But this re sult has not been achieved without a hard strug gle, and considerable expenditure of time and means on the pert of its editors. The steady increase of patronage, however, has afforded in dubitable evidence that their labors have been ap . dated. In entering upon the new volume it is almost unnecessary to say that the THfiuacwill contin ue to be “ LrozPKHDKKT is Evkstthimo,” be ing biassed neither by fear, favor nor affection, in favor of parties or sects. In this respect it is only necessary-to say that the past affords a Ihir index as to our future coarse. It has always been our aim to make the Tri bune, a reliable first-class Local Papxb, aa we. believe that in that character alone, country pa pers can successfully compete with their flashy city neighbors. To this end we have secured correspondents in various parts of the county, who furnish us with all the items of , local finter efit in their vicinity. We purposeaddisgothen to our list as soon os we can obtain them. Du ring the next year we shall redouble bur efforts to make Die ‘Tribune a perfect compendium of Hons News— a reliable, vibst-class Local Papke, second to*none in the country, and as such a welcome weekly visitor to our patrons, whether at home or abroad. Bat while, the Local Department iholl be oar speoial care, ire shall alto devote acanaidwa ble space to Litcrarx Matter, Fuji and Ho mor, and ibe chronicling of events of general interest to onr readers. yte purpose also pub* lisbing from time to time “ Original Sketches of Men and Things ” which will be tarnished by our contributors. We have made arrangements also to haye a weekly letter Cram Philadelphia, and judging from the reputation onr correspon dent sustains as a popular writer, these letters will be a rich'treat to our readers. As we are decided!/ journalists of the pro gressive. school, we have equcluded to adopt the cash.system ia opr .bnsinees. The neglect of quite a number ofow patrons to pay np prompt ly, and the of others, has compelled ds to adept’this. corpse. and experience has foliy. proved ,to our satisfaction that the credit (/stop will not work'-with newspaper; publishers. From- this date no paper 1 will be ! sent from this paid for in advance, J and at the expiration ofthe time paidfdr, if tud renewed, will; be promptly stopped. This arrangement does no .injustice to our patrons, wfaile'it will protect ds from Che impositions of soulless scoundrels, -and enable us .to devote more attention to onr. papier. = ~ \ Becoguiiing.the prinoiplo that contracts to be satisfactory should beiftaught with mutual benefit to both parties, and as money in large amounts, ,m advanet, is of mere .value to os thso; when received in as an •• induce ment to numbers who would otherwise- discon tinue, as well as to those who here never yet taken the paper, we offer it K at tike following low rates for the ooming year: 1 copy, one year $l5O JOeopip « ($1.25 per copy) IV$O : 5° “ (tI.OO percifii) 2000 aad.ali above 20 nt the same per copy.

BREACH OF PROMISE. BY A BEXIBED ATTORNEY. “Is it possible, Rose lieavitt ?” exclaim ed I, as 1 saw a lady whom I recognized as one of jbhe beautiful heircsses.of Boston enter my office. ■ \ “ I dare say you are surprised, hah my bdsiness is of a strictly legal character, so you most not wasteany exclamations upon the. event,” Rose Leavitt was a beauty and an heir ess, bntshe wasa strange girl for all that. Her father had died when she was about sixteen, leaving something like a millioh to be dimded between her and her two brothers. 1 Charles and Henry lieavitt were much older than she, and both of them had long been settled down as cpriet orderly business men. They w;ere respec ti&le in (he iUllesfc sensie of the word*, and were never Icpowrn to be erring in the slightest particular. ' Rose seemed to be cast in another en tirely different mould from-that in which they had been formal. Atschoolshehad beoh B<> wild that neikhier muter nor mis tress could control'ber-' She would bar* her bwh way, a peculiarity towhioh t am sorry, to say, very many young ladiesare addicted* ■ - For the proprieties of mean for those set forxhalities of life, whighbass as such in tfze world of fashion—she had sovereign obntempt. She hated dandies, hated pianos, music books, French and German methods, in fact sheseemed stri kingly disposed to live oat Imrexisteace after tho dictates of her own faney/orher caprice, as the reader may choose gard it. She passed into her twenty-first, year without having done anything to call the attention of the world at large to her. Her whims had only been manifest in the school, or at the home of her oldest broth er/with whom she resided. She was now twenty-two, and was in a fair way to become historical, as-1 shall inform the reader. Of course, Rose had a profusion of lovers-heiress.es always had them as plenty as suolv-flakes at Christmas. But Roaevery summarily disposed of this crowd, by selecting from them ’ one who was certainly a very superior fellow. He was not rich, and had not been very forward in his attentions, until it was plain to him, and all the worlds that she had taken a fancy to him. Charles Carpenter war poor, but he sincerely loved theway wod girl, and would: hot bavh beat i£sh« had notjovod her; ALTOONA PA., THURSDAY, MAY 27, 1858. • Thenßpse, after she had secured him in her toils, as -the spider does the fly, ■seemed a little disposed to play the co quette. . Now Charles Carpenter had not assurance enough to deal with a coquettish heiress, j He was not a man of the world. He was conscious of the Vast difference in their social- position, and when'she began to flirt with another, he did not resent it; hut seemed to regard it as a change of sentiment bn her part, to which he could offer no reasonable objection. Calmly yielding to the fate which denied him the bliss of being loved, he let u concealment 'like a wbnn in the bud feed on his damask cheek.” Rose, flirted. A new star had risen in the firmament of that circle in which she moved in the person of Mr. Sampson Doele. ! H0 had lately come from Balti . more, was the son of a merchant prince, pwned a fine estate on the Rappahannock in Virginia; with tifo hundred negroes. Rose flirted with him, and Mr. Sampson Deele was as constant as a needle to the pole. Soon the flirtation assumed a more serious aspect. The elegant gentleman was ever at; her side, and she never failed to smile upon him. Poor Carpenter gave up all for lost, and never intruded upon her presence. For about three months Mr. Deele had clung to her, and then it was whispered that he had proposed and was accepted. Rose’s brothers were in ecstacies. They had been afraid she would throw herself away upon A poor fellow like Carpenter; and both of them declared that it was the most sensible thing thing they had ever known her ite do; .inasmuch as they did not expect much of her in the way of mat rimony. I had heard all about these things as matter of gpsssp. I pitied poor Carpen ter, with whom I was well acquainted ; but the wealthy position, prospects and mag nificent expectations of Mr. Sampson Deele could not be gaipsayed. “ How is Mr. Deele?” I asked when she was seated.: . ■ - “He is a knave,” replied she, smartly. I was Utterly astonished at the ebullition of feeling, i “ Read that letter, Mr. Docket, and let it explain my business in a lawyer’s Office.” I took the document; it was from Mr., Sampson Deele. From it I learned for the first time, that the engagement be tween the parties had been broken up.— It appeared, that she had formally dismis sed him. The letter was strictly a busi ness document. If he had written any thing more delicate, he had done so before this was pejaned. In this he laid aside the character of the lover, and assumed that of business, looking out sharply for his material interest. The substance of it was that tie writer, would prosecute her for a breach of promise, if she refused to marry him.! “Whatshall I do, Mr. Docket?” she asked, trying to laugh, but I could observe the trepidation that filled her mind. “Really, Rose, this is a bad business. Why did yqu banish iiim ? I can con ceive what a terrible misfortune it must be, to be exiled from your presence.” “ I banished him because he is a knave, I can prpve-thai he is a. gambler, a profes sional gamester.” “ That will not be sufficient.” “I feared not, but one*thing is certain, I will never speak to him again, let the consequences be what they may.’* “ Have you committed yourself ?” “I have.? “Has there been any letters?” “Yes; he has everything in blabk and white.” • “ Badj bad, Rose.” ■ u I knew: that, ot* I should not have come to yott with such an affair." I questioned her closely as to all the particulatrs of the afihir. Mr, Sampson Heele cquld have iio better ease sofaras fißmgs wept then. It looked Just as if everything had been done ty design; and before the interview was miihhea' 1 was . satisfied that he .was; a scoundrel ; that all he Granted was my fair clients fortune.— Bntrose was cbmjfietdy in hm jibwer. JFor two or three days I fretted over the case and then decided to go to Baltiitiore myself. Enjoining upon Rose the strict est secrecy iin regard to my movements, I departed. >lt would take mncH space to relate the ‘incidents of my scarohTn Bal tore, brides it would spoil ~se story, I withhold them. On piy return, Ihastcnodto Baseband desired her to send for Mr. Bede He came and impudently. stated : the grounds of his claim toHhe-haifd of the heiress. “Ilow much Trill buy you off,. Mr. Beele?”I asked, with all appearance of deep anxiety. ' N x “ Well, sir, I do not wish to prosecute the lady. If she has ceased to love me, it is not my fault; but it is not right that I should be a sufferer by her change of sen timents. She is worth, I ani told, some three hundred thousand dollars. I will not be hard with her. Give me one-sixth of her fortune, and I will return the let ters.” « air, wp iiofc da said -hhy add to depart.; ' :8 - af,! , 1 > [independent in everything.] “One word mo,re: do you think your claim upon the lady is good ?” “ Undoubtedly." “Wait a moment, then, and I will con vince you to the contrary.” I opened the door of ah adjoining room, and Rose conducted a lady who had come from Baltimore with me, into the apart ment. “ This lady will be an excellent witness for the defense,” I remarked. u Thunder,” shouted he as he seized his hat and rushed from the house. : Bose threw, herself on the sofa and laughed till 1 thought she would go into hysterics—the crazy girl I In, a word, the strange lady was Mrs. Sampson Deele, wife of the aspirant for Bose's hand and fortune, whom the wretch had deserted several years before.- So much for my visit to Baltimore. Rose re warded Mrs. D. for her trouble, aud it was h profitable journey to her. About a year after, Charles Carpenter was made happy by receiving the hand of Rose, and, I am pleased to add, she has made a very steady wife. The Duke of Somerset, (a Seymour) commonly called the proud Duke, employ ed Seymour the artist to paint the por traits of his horses at Petworth. One day, at dinner, the duke filled his glass, and saying with a sneer— “ Cousin Seymour, your health,” drank it.off. “My lord,” said the artist, “I believe I have the honor of being related to your grace.” The proud peer arose from the table, and ordered the Steward to dismiss the presumptuous painter, and employ an humbler brother of the brush. This was accordingly done; but when the new painter saw the spirited works of his predecessor,, he shook his head, and retired, saying: “No man in the world can compete with James Seymour.'* The duke now condescended to recall his discarded cousin. “My Lord,” was the answer of Sey mour, “I will now prove to the World that I am one of your blood—l won’t come!” Upon receiving this laconic reply, the duke sent his steward to demand a for mer loan of one hundred pounds sterling. Seymour briefly replied that he would write to his grace; he did so, but directed his letter, ‘Opposite the trunk-maker’s, Charing Cross.” Enraged at this additional insnlt, the duke threw the letter into the fire without opening it, and immediately ordered his steward to have him arrested. But Seymour, struck with au oppor tunity of evasion, carelessly observed, that “it was hasty in his grace to barn the letter, because it contained a bank note of one hundred pounds sterling, and there fore, they were how quits.” For this reason, stepping on a woman’s foot is equivalent to squeezing her hand, and equally proper, bat sometimes more convenient, as it can be done under the table. Be careful, however, never to at tempt it at a crowded table, for fear of making a mistake.. We once saw a lady very much confused, who was trying to give a signal to a gentleman opposite, and instead of his, she trod, and' pressed on the corn covered toes of an old bachelor. He bore it as long as he codld, when be very quietly remarked : “Madame, .when you wish to tread on a gentleman’s toes, he particular arid get the foot that belongs to him—for the last five minutes you haVe been jamming my corns most unmercifully.” Fashion.— What could exhibit a more fantastical appearance than an English bean of the fourteenth century I He wore long pointed shoes, ffustened to his knee % gold .or silver chains j hqse of one. co lor on the one leg, and another , color on other, ■ short breeches .which did not reach to the midde of his coat, orie-half Vrbiite'y' the other half black .or blue ;' a long beaJrdj a silk hood buttoned under the chhi> enibrindered vrith grdt esque figure of animals, dancing men, Jto., andsometimes ornamented with gold and precious' stones; This dress itM in the height of the mode in the' reign of King Edward IH.j—[flehry’s History of England. .1./:--.
