On it curtain occasion, two French iitiiliiifsndoi's were sent to tlio Spanish court to negotiate a liiarriago between one of tlio Cnstiliiui princesses and Louis VII. Tim names of tlio royal females were Urraea mid Rliincho, tlio flivt of whom was tlio elder and the inoro beau tiful, and was intended by tho court for tho Eiencli king, but the ambassadors persisted in their preference for lilanche on account of her mime, sayinj; th;it Urrnca would never do. They wero beiisiblo men. So Rlancho was mado iinteii hi cause hho had a fair name, and Ulanclie Is alwiiysniVe'.if not beautiful. Is there not something in a uanic'.' I bespeak thotlnuiks of tho yet un named Henerati.'ins, on whom I hopo to tonfergreat and lasting benefits by call ing attention to our personal nomcitcla-tun-. I will confine, myself in tho pres ent communication to women's names. Theru aro nearly two hundred femi nine Christian names which may be considered as either native or natural ized among ns, but scarcely fifty of lliest) nro In anything like general uso. Anna, Alice, Caroline, Catharine, Eliza beth, Elizu, Ellen, Emma, Fanny, liar riet, Jane, Julia, Lucy, Louisa, Mary, Martha, Margaret, Sophia and Susan, witli perhaps if few others, aro univer sal. They aro all good names when understnndinBly applied, mid I would not dUcoiirtigo tlio tno of one of them, but theioare a hundred others, equally good, which are .seldom or never used. Our poverty lu the matter of personal appellations is truly distressing, as illus trated in tho fact that in almost every neighborhood otio may find two or tlircu Marys and as many Fannys, Ellens, nnd Lizzies, creating great confusion unless wo miilio uso of tho oiii'iimno aloo In .speaking of eacli individual Mai'y,EIIen, or Fanny. To avoid this continual repetition, wo should bring into uso a greater variety of pretty nanus. Mary, although somo etymologists translate i mttrai (Olttcr), is onu of tho sweetest as well as tho commonest ever given to women, I prefer to consider It as signifying rxalttd, or, us another authority has it, star of the sea. Maria und Marie (tho latter being French) aro merely other forms ot tho same unite, and, of course, Imvo tho sumo meaning; Martha means bitterness, which, nUs I Is too often blgiilHc.iut of tho lot of wo maul but our Malthas may bo sweet girls In splto of tlio.etymuloglits. Anna, Anne, I Junnali, and probably Nliiiiaud Nancy, aro all from thori.iiuo root, signifying gracious or Und, of which fact tho fair owners of thoso prio nouieiis will pleaso to tako notice, and govern themselves accordingly. Jane, now generally familiarized Into Jenny (pleaso don't write it Jenny!) though dlllerently derived, has tho s.imo mean lug as tlio foregoing, Ellen was originally Helen (Latin, Jlclena; French, Iteteiie), According to somu etymologists, It has tlio mean lug oUtllartiKj, while othurs define it as one who pities. Many n Helen, slnco" sho of Troy, lias proved alluring, and somo Imvo shown that pity which Is akin to lovo. Ella Is only a variation of Ellen. For Sarah (Hebrew, Sum or .S'cca; uud Arable, Jfttra) wo find two defini tions ( princess uud the morning slur. Lucy rjlgulllcs Ilka ttght,w thouaiuu was anciently given to girls born nt day-break, Aurora, Aureola, mid Au roro olden, the dawn or morning ted (ifijfJi JJcrtlin (diiiVAi"), imil Clara (clear), may bo grouped with It, Louisa (French, Louise) Is tho foinl nlno of Louis, nnd luej tlio meaning of protector, or one who famishes a place of refuge or of rest. It Is sweetest In its familiarized or pot form of Lou, Fanny, or, inoro formally, Francos, Is frank or free; Ellziboth (hotter its Liz zy), Isabel, and Eliza, hue ; nnd Sophia, tt'tsrfowi. Catherine, or Kutlmiino, derived from tho Greek, Kathuic pure or chaste,) Is ono of tho best of alt our fenialo names. It la pretty in its Irish modification, Kathleen, and mostuttractivo us Kate. Caroline, Charlotte, und C.trlottu.wlth their diminutives, Lotta, Lotty, Carry, Llna, nml Lily, nro all feminine forms of Charles (Spanish, Carlos; CJermun, Karl), which conies from tfio Sclavonic Krot, a king; nnd tho fair owners of theso ilno names should, therefore, bo ryifftti queens of hearts. Julla.of which Jullotta mid Juliet nro simply diminutives, signifies soft-hair-ed; Harriet, mistress of the house; and Alice, a princess. Emma should bo tender, affectionate, Mothcrli. Tho linmo is said to signify, literally, o;ic who nurses, varesfor, or teutches over another; but another an thorlty translates it industrious. Susan signifies a lily, and Is u fitting namo font tall, slender, flowcr-llko girl, of fair complexion and natlvo grace. As companions for this, Lilian (lily, like) uud Istnllna (white lily-bud) may be mentioned. Tlio last is of Indian derivation, but might appropriately grnco (lie fairest or Anglo-Saxon maid ens. Muigurct comes to us from tho Latin margarita, a pearl. Rut another, nnd, if possible, a still more beautiful signlfi cation, has, curiously enough, attached it.ielftolho name. Tho German word mugd, a maid, was anciently written maretc nnd maghet, which words wero ea-ily confused with Madge, nnd thus with Margaret. Daisies were also called maghtts, maids, or margarets, whence wo have tho French, marguerites, daisies. Among the beautiful names less fre quently met with uro : Agues, chaste ; Agatlm, kind: Amelia nnd Amy (from the French verb aimer, to love,) beloved; Adaline, of noble, birth; Eleanor, all fruitful; Gertrude, all truth; Qrncc, Attw; Matilda, ft brave maid; Laura, a laurel; Pliebe, radiant or light of life; and Edilli, rich. Now, why not add Indefinitely to this list by introducing beautiful mimes formerly in use, but now entirely obso lete, and by tho adoption of such for eign und classic ones us nro adapted to tho genius of our language? I will sug gest it few which seem lo conform to these 'conditions, and to bo in every way wortliy of tho yet-to bo-cliristened daughters of America. Reatrico one who blesses) Is a sweetly significant name. It is n favorite ono in Italy, nnd not entirely unknown here. It should be more common ; und tho same may be paid of Lotltla, Joy; Irene, peace; Lulu, good; Rlanclio,nir; Miranda, admirable (see Shakespeare, in "1'ho Tempest"); Eve and Eva, life giving or fiuitful; Ruth, satisfied; und Salome, peaceful. Alniah is ol oriental origin, and sig nifies a virgin. Alma (without the h) is L'iti n, ami means benign, genial, or one who'nurtuies or cherishes. Cora is a maiden; Julia, youthful (ever young sho should be) and Rarbaru, sliaiuje or foreign. Tho promim of great beauty may be acknowledged by such a namo as Mabel (ma belle), my fair one ; Amanda, love ly; Rebecca, of enchanting beauty; or best of all, Calistu, most beautiful; An nuel (lrom unnuh,m linunaii, Mulbelle) signifies hind and beautiful; and Clari bel, bright and beautiful.

Rut whoever they wuz, thoy must liov made a good tiling out of it, or so menny ov their posterity would not liov harnessed up since nnd drove out.

Sum iiinrry for buty, and never dis kovcr their mistake; this iz lucky. Sum marry for money, nnd don't seo it. Sum marry fur pedigree, and feel big for six months, and then very sensibly cum tow tho conclusion that pedigree aint no better than skimmllk. Sum marry becawso thoy liavo been liighsted somo where elsejthis iz a cross match, a bay anil u sorrel; pride may muko it endurable. Sum marry for lovo without it cent in their pocket, nor n diop ov pedigree. This looks desperate, but it Is the strength of the game. If mnrry fur love aint a success then matrimony is a tied beet. Sum marry becauso they think wim min will bo scarce next year, nnd live tew wonder how tho crop holds out. Sum marry to get rid of themselves, nnd discover that tho game was ono that two could play at.nnd neither win. Sum mnrry tho second time- to get even, nnd find it a gambling game tho more they put down tlio less they take up. Sum marry to bo happy, uud not finding It, wonder whero nil the hap piness goes to when it dies. Sum marry, thoy can't tell why, nnd live, they can't tell how. Almost everybody gets married, and it is a good Joke. Sum mnrry in haste, and then sit down nnil think it carefully over. Sum think It over cureftill fust, and then set down und marry. Roth ways are right, if they only hit the mark. Sum marry rakes to convert them. This lz a little risky, nnd takes n smart missionary to do it. Sum marry coqttetfs. This lz like buying u poor farm heavily mortgaged und workingthe bulunco or your days to got clear ov tho mortgages. Mariied life lias its chances, ami this izjust what gives it its flavor.

Wo had lust seated ourselves and prepared tot n comrorlnbio smoke, when in came tlio conductor, nnd who should it bo but our old rrlend R. After tho common salutlons hud passed, Fred said ho lind somo business for us to attend to. "Out with It, old chum," said wo. "Anything ut all will be acceptable, so let us Imvo it." "Well, boys," said he, "in the next car there is ns loving n pair ns It was ever my lot lo seo. They uro going down to II, to get married; and now if you can have any fun over it, just pitch in." In a moment ho was gone, uud wo set our heads together to form a plan. "I liavo It, boys," said Bill Steevers. "Wo must make tho girl think that her lover is mnrried " "That's it Bill that's it," said we, not giving him time to finish tlio sen tenco. "That ho ha married man, nnd the father of children," said Bill. It devolved upon mo to commencoop orations. Accordingly, I entered tho car in which wo wero informed tho lov ers were. Sure enough, there they were. Tho girl, thinking, I suppose, that she must give her lover nil tho sent had taken her seat on his knee, nnd lie ror the purpose or protecting her, had thrown his arm around her waist; nnd so they sat in real soft lover's style. All this I gathered ut n glanro. Stepping up to thorn, I said: " "Why, Jones, what in tho deuco nro you doing with this girl ?" The girl rose hastily and seated her self on the scat. "See here, stranger," said tho fellow, "you aro n mito mistaken; my namo ain't Jones." "Why, Jones," said I, "you certain ly haven't left your wife and children, and tried to palm yourself off for u sin glo man, have you V" "I tell you my name ain't Jones; it's Harper. It never was Jones 'taint go ing to be, nutiier." I merely shook my head and passed on to anotherseat to seo the rest of the fun. About the time tho couple got reeling all right again, in came Elliott Gregg. Walking up to Harper, ho ac costed him with "Why, Jones, you here? How did you ieavo your wire and babies?" "Now see here, stranger, you ain't t ho fust man that's called me Jones to day, nn' I reckon I must look awfully llko him, but I ain't Jones, an' moro'n tlint, you musn't cull mo Jones. I hain't got a wife nor babies either; but this ero gal an' mo is going to splico, and then you can talk about my wife, and I wouldn't wonder but what, In course of time, you might talk about babies, too; but you musn't call me Jones!" This retort brought forth vociferous laughter from tho spectators, nnd it nlso brought blushes to the fiico of tho girl that "was goin' to bo spliced." "Ah, Jones," said Gregg, "you'll ro gret this in tlio future. I pity your wife nnd tills poor girl." "So, Mr. Harper, your mil namois Jones, is It'.' and you'vo been fooling me, Imvo you? Well, wo ain't spliced yet, and I don't think wo shall bo verv soon," said tho girl, andhereycsflaslicd'r fire. "Jane, Jane!" said Harper, "don't you know I'm Rill Harper? Thalr ain't a darned drop of Jones blood in me, an' I'll prove It. At tills moment, Jeff.

This was mom lliitii Harper could stand. IIo leaped up on n seat. "Now," said he, "my namo is not Jones, nn' I can lick tlio follow that says it is."

It would seem, from tlio frequent oc currence of remarknblo incidents, tlint thero is certainly nothing of an im probablo naturo, Judging from tho fol lowing wonderfully strange anil haidly creditublo story which camo lo our ears u fow days since: In the spring of 1849, when tho gold fever was nt its highest posslbio atato of excitement in California, thero lived in tho state of Virginia, on the banks of tho York rlver,a rew miles below York towi', n gentleman of culture, whose jiarcnts wero In moderate circumstan ces. It was during the gold excitement ho left tlio comforts of a home, his friends, relntivcs, a loving wife whom ho had lctl to tho altar but a year since, and nn only child a daughter or two months and took up his lonely Jour ney to seek his fortune In tho wild, dis tant West, over and beyond tho Rocky Mountains, whorotho bright nnd gold en sun sinks down to rest amid the blue waves of tho grund Pnclflc. After years of toll, drudgery, and re verses of" fortuno lu tho mines, ho enmo to this city and engaged in business. He, being successful, soon nmassed an lmmenso fortune. His beloved wlfo lind died luring a prevailing cpidomic while on a visit to somo relatives dur ing tho yellow-lever season at New Or leans, nsnt the sumo time did a littlo girl of another fnmily,oftho sumo namo and ago as his i ittle duughter. He vis ited tlio States, but could find no clue to his decensed wire's sister; ho thought naturally, she, too, had died. Ho re turned to the Golden State, and time und tho whirling excitement or business toon henied ills sorrows, nnd effaced ap parently, all recollections of his old homo on tho batiks or the placid York. Shortly after tho completion or the Pacific Railroad thero arrived at this city a gentleman, his wlft), nnd a beau tiful, well-educated, and graccrul young ladyjustbloominginto maidenhood, ap parently and really ornbout 1 8 summers.
