great ninny years since, when bright-
eyed, fnir-huircd hts.-es wcro.not so plenty In
England as they are now, there dwelt in
the town of P , a pretty village, distant,
then, some live and twenty utiles from the
Market town, a peculiar comely and grace
ful maiden, who hail a peculiar, ugly nnd
cro-.s-graincd but wealthy father.
Minnie was Dauforth's only child; and
report said truly that she would be his sole
legatee. The old man was a sturdy fanner,
mil was estimated to be worth full ten
thousand dollars at that period, a verv
laiidsome fortune to he sure.
The sparkling eyes and winning ways of
Minnie Daiiforth hud stirred up the liner
feeling of the whole male portion of tho
village, and her suitors were numerous; but
her lather was particular, and none suc
ceeded in making headway with him or
In the meantime Minnie had a true and
oyal lover in secret. Who would have
supposed for one moment that such a fel
low would look on beauty and comparative
refinement? His name was Walker, or, as
ho was generally called, Joe Joe Walker,
and he w.n simply a farmer, employed by
old Daufortli, who had entrusted Joe with
the management of his place for two or
Hut a very excellent farmer nnd a right
good manager, was the plain, unassuming
hut good lookimr Joe Walker. He was
young, loo, only twcniy-lhrce; anil lie
actually fell in lovo with tho beautiful,
pleasant, oyous, Minnie Daiiforth, his old
employer) inly daughter, w t thestrangest
part of the occurrence was, that Minnie re
turned his love earnestly, truly, nnd frankly;
and premised lo wed him at a favorable mo
Tilings went on merrily for a time, but
)ld D.mforth discovered certain glances
and attentions between them, which excited
his envy ind suspicion. Very soon after
wards, Joe learned the old man's mind, in
directly, in regard to his future di-poal of
Minnie's hand, and he quickly saw that his
case was a Hopeless one, unless lie resorlcil
to stratagem ; aud so he set his wits at once
Ily an agreement, an apparently settled
I'oldue-s and distance was observed by the
lovers towards each other for live or six
months ; nnd tho father saw (as he believed)
with satisfaction, that his previous sus
picions aud fears had been all premature.
Then, by agreement also between them,
loo absented himself from tho hotiso at
evening; nml mgnt alter iiigui mr mil
threo months longer, did .loo disappear as
soon as un work was ntusneu, to return
home only at into bed time. This was un
usual, and old Daiiforth determined to
know tho causo of it.
Joe frankly confessed that lie was in love
with a man's daughter, who resided less
than threo miles distant ; but, after a faith
ful attachment between them for several
months, tho old man had utterly refused to
entertain his application for the young
This was capital. Just what old Daii
forth most desired. This satisfied him that
lie had made a mistake in regard to his own
child ; and ho would help Joe to get mar
ried and thus stop all further suspicions or
trouble nt home. So ho said :
"Well, Joe, sho is n buxom lass?"
"Yes yes," said Joe, "That is, oilier
folks say so. I'm not much of a judge
"And you like her?"
"Yes, sir yes,"
"Then marry her," said old Pan forth.
"Hut I can't thu father objects"

so; what need you carol Hun away with

"Hut, no buts, Joe. Do m I bid you ; go
about it nt once j and '
"You will standby mo?"
"Yes, to the last. I know you, Joe,
You'ro it good fellow, n good workman, and

"The old Iclloiv will bo so mad though."
"Who cares, I say ? Go on quickly but
"To-morrow night, then," said Joe.
"Yoi," said Daiiforth.
"I'll hiro Colvcr's horso "
"I say no. Tako mv horso tho best
ono Young Morgan; he'll take you oil in
fine style, in tho new phaeton."
"And as soon, as you're spliced, como
right back here, and a jolly time wo'll have
of it at the old house."
"Her father will kill mo I"
"Hah I Ho's an old fool, whoever he is ;
ho don't know your good qualities, Joe, so
well as I do. Don't be afraid ; a faint heart,
you know, never won a fair woman."
"Tho old man will bo astounded."
"Xever mind, go on. We'll turn the
laugh on him. I'll take caro of you nnd
your wife at any rate."
"I'll do it," replied Joe.
"You shall," said Daiiforth; nnd they
parted in the best of spirits.
An hour after dark, on the following
evening, .loo inado his appearance, decked
in a nice new black suit, and really looking
very comely. Tho old man hustled out to
tho barn with him, helping to harness
"Young Morgan" to his new phaeton, nnd
loading tho spunky animal himself to the
road, away went lumpy Joo Walker in
search of his bride. A few rods distant
from the house ho found her, as per previ
ous arrangement ; and repairing to the next
village, the parson very quickly made them
ono in holy wedlock. Jos took the bride,
and soon dashed back to tho town of P
and halted at old Dauforth's hoiwc who was
already looking for him, and who received
him with open arms.
"Is it done?" cried the old man.
"Yes yes!" answered Joe.
"firing her in, bring her in," continued
the old fellow, in high glee ; "never mind
compliments; no matter about the dark
entry ; here, Joe, to tho right in the best
parlor; wo'll have a time now, sure I" and
the nnxious.iarmer pushed away for lights,
returning almost immediately.
"Here's the certificate, sir," said Joe.
"And this is my 'wife," he added, as he
passed up his beautiful bride the bewitch
ing and lovely Minnie Dunforth !
"What!' roared the old file; "Joe you
villian, you scamp, you audacious cheat,
you yon you"
"It is true, sir, we are lawfully married.
You advised me to this course, you as sistcd
me, you planned tho whole all'air, you lent
me your hore, you thought mo, last even

ised to stand by me, you encouraged me,
you promised mo the cottago at the foot of
tho lane, you "
"I didn't! I deny it. You can't prove
it, you're a a a a"
"Calmly now, sir," continued Joe. And
the entreaties of the happy couple were at
once united to quell the old man's ire, nnd
to persuade him to acknowledge the union.
Hie father relented at last. It was a job
of his own manufacture, and he saw how
useless it would be finally to attempt to des
He gave in reluctantly, nnd the lair
Minnie Daiiforth was overjoyed to be dulv
acknowledged as Mrs. Joe Walker.
The marriage proved a joyful one; nnd
the original assertion of old Daiiforth
proved truthful in every respect. The cun
ning lover was a good ton and a faithful
husband, and lived many years to enjoy the
happiness which followed upon his runaway
match ; while the old man never cared to
hear much about the details of the elope
ment, fur he saw how completely he had
over-shot his mark !
X'o passion can lead to buch extremities,
nor involve u man in such a complicated
train of crimes and vices, aud ruin whole

for gambling. It produces and nourishes
all imaginable di.-graeeful sensations; it is

HIS REMAUKAllI.E HISTORY.
Pinchback has a very remarkable history.
Ho was oncon slave. His father was Ma
jor Holmes, a wealthy planter in Georgia.
His mother was a quadroon, the property of
his father. Major Holmes was n classical
old dog, immensely fond of reading. Ho
dubbed the young- brat ollspriug of himself
nnd his quadroon slave with Shellv's high
sounding iintno by way of a joke, and wound
up the high sounding given names with a
surname of Pinchback, for tho sake of the
ridiculous:. Tho littlo brat, who was in the
future to make so much troublo in Louisiana
and in tho United States Senate was a great
pet with his father, a sort of black foot ball
for the family to play with. Ho was called
by them "Pinch.," as hois. to thisdtiy among
LOST AT A GAME OF POKER.
Major Holmes, like most southern gentle
men of his time, was very fond of card play
ing. His lavorito game was poker. When
engaged at this fascinating game he would
wager everything he had about him to re
gain lost points. If he had been able he
would havo staked his immortal soul many
times over during his poker-playing life.
"Pinch." was brought up by his father as
a special body servant, nnd he was a very
quick, bright lad, he always traveled about
with him wherever ho went.
One day when Pinch was in the neighbor-
noou oi ten years ot age, no was taken by
tlio Major down the river to Xew Orleans.
The steamer on which they traveled when
..-.u.ut nm jiissiasijjui was mo reu
steamer Magnolia, Captain St. Clair Tomas-
son commanding. On tho way down Major
nonnes got into a game ot poker with the
captain unit lost very heavily. In the end he
lost an oi nis rcauy casn about tiim and had
nothing lelt to bet. He wished to continue
me game, wun tne vain nope possessed by
theveteran gamester, that hemight win back
his losses. Ho said, after a moment's sullen
"I have nothing to put up, captain.'
"Hut there's your bov Pinch I"
Holmes was so carried away with the ex
citement of the game that lie caught at this
idea and staked "Pinch" then nnd there.
The result was not changed; "Pinch" was
lost and he and his father patted company,
the chronicler says, forever.
LEAltNINQ TO PLAY POKER.
"Pinch." wasbrought upon the steamboat
and there is where ho gained a knowledge
of polite manners, and so thorough a knowl
edge of tho game of poker. He is to this
day a great poker player, and only the other
night at Willard's hotel won $700 from Con
gressman- Sheldon, of Louisiana. If he
cannot becomo n Senator, ho will at least
make his expenses while hero making the
attempt. "Pinch" remained ou the steam
boat until he became of ago and then he
purchased his freedom and went to Xew
Orleans. Ho had made much money by
gaming, and he proceeded to establish him
self in Xew Orleans by opening up one of
tho finest restaurant establishments there,
equal to Welcker nt Washington or Del-
monico's in Xew York, so far ns cooking

who afterwards coining to her exalted station,
showed a purity and nobleness of character
more beautiful than her personal loveliness.
She was the first aud o;ify love of Cromwell
and in tho height of his greatness and near
the end of his reign, when necessity had
