A long pleasant, winding, lonely country
roau, witb splendid great npplo mm pear
trees standing on either side, and the spring
flowersjdotting the green carpet so thickly
that the green 19 almost hidden, comei slowly
on this poet's May day, a diminutive,
odd-looking white horse, drawing n market
wagon filled with household furniture, nc
companied by an enormous shaggy New
foundland dog and as pretty a country maid
as ever milked a cow or made a pat of golden

roguish eyes, cheeks brown with an underly.
ing tinge of rose, a charming red lipped
mouth, aud airm, round chin.
Across the brow, however, ut tills moment
flits the shadow of n frown, ni.tl a lutik of
comic perplexity comes into the. sweet young
face. 'J. ho odd looking horse has stoiiel
in the middle of the road und remain per
fectly motionless, staring directly belarc him
save when he bends his head to take n ml
ble at the (lower, thick grass, as though slid
denly oblivious of everything under tho tun
except the tranquility of tho June-like May
'Ob, Charley ! Charley I go on do !
that's a dear!' coaxes tho young girl, coming
to his side and gently patting his head with
bar little brown ungloved hand ; but Char
ley merely whisks a too-familiar fly away
with his forlorn old tail, and makes no fur.
'Charley, good horse, Charley oh! wh
didn't I bring some carrots with me! Char
ley, you bad, bad fellow, il you don't go on
I'll whip you as sure as you stand there
Come, bo a darling,' And thus she alternate
ly begs and threatens, Lion assisting in dog
language, with an occasional dash at the
heels of his obstinate equine friend : but
Charley refuses to 'be a darling,' plants h
leet more firmly than ever, aud never stirs
and at last, with an air of resignation, sh
goes back to the path, seats herself on a rudi
seat formed by nature f the gnarled roots
of the misshapen old treo,and waits patiently
for at least ten minutes. At the cud of th
time Charley looks about with a just-wake
up expression iu his eyes, as oue who should
aayDearl dearl I quite forgot there was wor
to be done,' aud starts oil' with quick ste
that gradually become slower and slower.
With a sigh of relief the young girl arises
and follows Liou, bounding back from the
wood, where he has been making h.ity ex
plorations, having it in his mind tlutt hU
niittress is not to be left without his pro
tection for more than two minutes nt a time,
takes his place at her side aud tho per
plexed look fades away into a smile that
brings to light two rows of pearl-white
But, alas I the smile in premature. In an
other ten minutes, again. overcomo by tho
beauty and peacefulness of the day, Charley
falls into a reverie, stops once more, and
once more refuses most decidedly to go
And in this manner docs that dread I ul
horse behave for a whole hour, making short
progresses and long pauses, until finally
coming to she conclusion that there has been
quite enough of this sort of thing, he de
liberately drags tho wagon to tho side of tho
road, takes up his station bencatii a wide
spreading oak, and proceeds to munch the
young grass at his feet, with a look in his
mc I eyes that says as plainly as words, 'Ironi tins
spot move me If you can.'
'Oh, Charley I Charley how can you ?' be
gins the young girl loudly nnd indignantly,
following him with small brown hands
clasped beseechingly. 'Oh, you wicked,
wicked Charley I'
'Did you call me ?' asks a masculine voice
to her great aatonishmet ; and as t itli n

"Beg pardon. I thought for an instant
you were speaking to me. It seems I have
the honor of being a namesake of your
fiery item!. But you are in trouble. What
Is the matter ? Can I help you Iu any
"There'a nothing very serious the matter,"
he says.with a Bmlle. "We are moving to-
day, and father went on ahead a long while
ago, having some business to settle with our
new landlord, and he must be at this very
moment waiting for me at the house, and
wondering what in the world has become of
me. You see,we have no boys in our family
and the other girls aro younger than myself,
and father and mother both thought this
being a very quiet road that Lion and I
could look after Charley and the furniture
but Cbarley,who generally behaves very well
hasbeen awfully contrary, aud stopped every
moment, and the consequence is we have
been already two hours on a journey that
should have taken us but one, and thero'i
just a long distance to go yet ; and with
Charley ob, you naughty horse I standing
under that tree, I don't know how we are
ever going to get to Grasstown.
"It's almost as bad a plight as the qld wo
man was In with her pig, when he wouldu'
go under the stile, and bhe was afraid. she

Oh. no, that would never do I'1 she says,
shaking her head emphatically. "Chailey

raircd at tho very sight of n switch that I
believe he'd run away.
"Wouldn't that lo a desirable thing.under
the ciiciiiiHtntices ?" a-ks the young man,
with n brn.td ntnile, thu idea of tho old horse
whoso principal desire appeared to be not to
move nt nil, running nway, rtriklng him ns
nexpits-ibly enmic, and thinking, "Bless
her kind littlii liturll" lie continues. "Well,
since jotl rulusn the switch, I will try how a

Charley started, turned his head to ward

Well, tho idea I" exclaimed his young
And now, with your permission, I'll
walk with you to tho end of your journey,
for if I leave you, Charley will note my
bienec immediately, and stop under tho
"Ob, no, indeed I you must not," says the
pretty country maid. "You were going in
an entirely different direction. I could not
think of taking you mj far out ot your way,
Many thanks for your kind ofl'er, but indeed,
sir, 1 couldn't. Charley will behavo well
now. Won't you, Charley V
Good heavens I I never knew my namo
was so musical before," thinks tho young
man, nnd then explains : "I was going in
an entirely tlillercnt direction because I
missed my train nt the. lust station, and if I
waited, would have unci to wait two hours
for another; but, being rather impatient by
nature, and tempted by thp lino day. I set
out to walk, my destination being tho next
village. Anil now if I return with you
shall hnvo a much plcasantcr walk, catch the
train and lose no time alter all. Lion np
proves nf my plan. Don't you, Lion?'
And Liou, usually very suspicious of strait
gers, comes and lays his startlingly eold
noso in his new friend's hand.
nd so the two young peoplo walk along
side by tide, crushing the pretty llowers un
der their feet as tliey go, nnd Charley, look
ing back every now and then out of the corn
er ot his right eye to see if the masculine
voice is still there, never falters, but keeps
steadily on his winding way. After a few
moments' silenco the innocent little maid
raises her blue eyes they havo been hidden
by tho long lashes and says, in a Bhy
"You i-aid you vvcro going to Daisyville.
I havo lived there all my life."
"Not a very long time," says the young
man, witli a smile.
"Seventeen years. I was born and my
three sisters were born iu the same littio farm
hou.so we aro leaving now." And n tear
trembles on tho long lashes and rolls down
the round rosy cheek.
The young man looks at tho tear with
"And vvero you happy there," lie asks.
"rio happy," replies the girl,"that wo fear
wo never will bo half as happy any whero
else. Aud" a sudden light breaking over
her face '.'I believo thnt is what ails Char
ley. Ho knows it isn't right that wo should
bo going to a strango place ; and doe.s his
best, poor fellow, to prevent our coin!?."
"Undoubtedly," gravely ns.ents her com
panion. "Hut why, it you will permit me
) ask, ornynii bidding farewell tn Daisyville?
-G'hnig, Charley," tn Charley evinces a
lesiro to listen to tho conversation,
"Father didn't own the place. He had it
on n long lease, which ran nut the very week
a mouth ago) our old landlady did, and her
leir a nephew and his mother are coming
to take possession of tho estate, and they
want our farmhottso fortheirgatdner. When
Mrs.JIurks was alive her gardener had rooms
over the stable, and very comfortabki rooms
thoy were, too, and the kitchen-garden was
ust back of the big Iiou.se, But I suppose
tho new peoplo nro more fctylish than the old
ones, nnd want their kitelien-pnrden larger
and farther away than Mrs. Marks was, and
to they take from its our home, and wo are
obliged to move to Grasstown."
"And nro your father and mother as much
attached to Daisyville as you and your sis
ters are ? ho nsks.
"Even more attached to it," she answers,
'if that is possible. It almost breaks my
heart to see mother's sad face. But I must
try to mako tho now home as bright for them
as can that is, If over I get there. Oh
dear I how very unfortunate that Charley
should liavo taken it into his head to bo so
naughty this day of all others 1"
"Ou tho coutrary, I think, Miss Gray"
it lias transpired that her namo is Iicssio
Gray "that it is tho most fortunate tiling
that could liavo happened."
Her blue eyes aud red mouth open in
" llecatiso answering the look "if
Charley had behaved well iustead of badly you
would havo been at Grasstown long beforo
this, and I should not have had tho pleasure
ol meeting you. And now I am about pro'
posing something which will teem extremely
absurd to you, although Iu reality tho wisest
tiling that could be done under the circum
stances I Suppose wo turn Charley's head in
tho direction of his old home, and Bee what
speed he will mako then,"
"But," looking at him half irighteued, as
Lion bounded forward with a loud, joyful

Opinion of tho court by Trunkey, J. :
Ellen J. Null obtained judgment against
Lewis A. Crouso, a licensed inn keeper, for
causing the death of her husband by furn
ishing him intoxicating drinks in violation
of tho Act of May 8, 1851. Tho third sec

of April 10, 1851, and April 20, 1835, ena

damages from one who, in violation of an
existing law, furnishes liquor to an intoxi

Tho I'rentlge of Victory.
Dill, Ross, Fertig and Africa 1 This is a
siilendid combination personally and geo
graphically, and will meet tho demands of
the people in all parts of the great common
wealth. Andrew II. Dill has been four
times beforo tho people as a candidate for
the house and senate in republican districts
and has never been defeated. His popular
ity has increased with each year of his pub
lic service until it has spread throughout the
entire state. The district which he now
represents in tho senate was constructed to
return a republican but it was not proof
against the popularity of Andrew H, Dill,
Under his influence and auspices the dis
trict has now become soundly and safely
democratic. This is a presage of victory.
Henry M, Hoyt, the opponeut of Andrew
H. Dill for governor, on tho other hand, has
been beaten on the only two occasions when
he was before tho people; once as a candidate
for district attorney nud once as a candidate
for additional law judge in Luzerne county,
It will not do to say that the odds were too
heavy against him. They were not greater
than those of his democratic competitor.
While Iloyt was beaten in Luzerne, whose
politics ho lias so often manipulated, Ketch-
urn, Harding, Shoemaker, Payno and other
republicans liavo been elected. This is nn
omen of defeat.
Henry 1'. Ross, tbo nomineo for tho su-
rcme bench, is President Judgoof thethir
ty-eighth judicial district, consi-ting of the
urge and populous county of Montgomery,
In tho Tenth Legion his namo is a tower of
strength. The unanimity with which tho de
mocracy of his portion of tho state demand
cd his nomination in tho present nud form
er state conventions bears evidence of his
popularity, llo is regarded as one of the
nblest and most accomplished jurists in the
commonwealth, and he will prove a worthy
colleague of Judge Trunkey. Against him
is James P. Sterrctt of Allegheny county,
who enters tho contest with tho burden ot
last year's defeat, and with the additional
burden of having intrigued to push aside
the venerable chief justice. This is auotlier
presagoof defeat for the Catnerou ticket.
John rertig, tho candidate for lieutenant
governor, represeuts the county of Crawford
in the state senato, having been elected over
popular opponent in that republican
stronghold. He is not a politician but a bus-
inesss man of experience. An oil producer
himself, the peoplo of the oil regions havo in
his nomination a still further guarantee of
the good faith of the democratic party in re
gard to their interests in the legislature.
Senator Stone, his opponent, was nominated
by the Camerouians in the hope that he
would bo nblo to ;arrcst the tido of indigna
tion which has arisen in the oil regions on
account of tho hostility of the Republicans
in the legislature to their Interests. But
whilo Stone could not bring a republican
senator beyond tho limits of the oil regions
to the support 'of the free pipe bill nearly
ail the democratic senators etood with Fer
tig for tho measure. The nomination of
Fertig completely effaces all the advantage
which the Camerouians hoped to draw from
the candidacy of Stone.
For secretary of Internal affairs the candi
date of the couvention is J, Simpson Africa
of Huntingdon county, who has been prac-
tically at the head of that department ever
since its organization by General M'Cand
less, His punctuality, correctness, method
ical habits of business, aud affability com
bine to make him a model official, His pop
ularity, too, has been fully tested. He was
elected a member of the legislature from the
county of Huntingdon when the county gave
u republican majority of a thousand and
wlieti all ms associates ou tno ticket were
The candidates of the democratic couven
tion thus enter the field with the prestige of
victory, Dill, Ross, Fertig and Africa have
never beeu beaten befoie tho people. Three
of them have been successful in strong re
publican districts. The convention has done
nobly. It has placed before tho peoplo of
Pennsylvania the srougest and best ticket
alike in its pernonntl and its geographical
posltiou that has been nominated in a gene
ration, Dill, Boss, Fertig and Africa form
a quadrilateral which will defy all the efforts
of the Cameron combination to break it.

that the bond is security for such damages

made to give them a broader sense, without

The winter of 1814 was long remembered
in many parts of England as that of the

mail coaches had to cease running, and in
many instances were abandoned in the snow,
