AN AL'IM JOT
BY GEORGE ARNOLD.
It la a talc autumnal day,
The ground la strewn with yellow leaves;
The maple stems gleam bare and gray,
The grain Is bound in golden sheaves;
Afag I hear the speckled quails
P.m. shrilly 'mid the stubble dry,
A utl muffled bream from busy flails
Within the horn near by.
The latest roses now are dead,
Their petals scattered Air end wide,
The owner berries, richly red,
Bedeck the lane on either side;
A dreamy calm la on the air—
A dreamy echo on the sea
Ah, never was a day more tan
Than thla which blesses met
I see the stacks of ripened torn—
The yellowed maws on the roof,
The diamond dew-drops of the morn.
That string with grins the spider's woof;
An azure haze Is hanging low
Ahont the outline of tde
And charming sea-fowl southward go
From marshes, Data, and kIL.
For many yesui the autumn brought
A solemn madness to my soul—
It uombred e'en my Ilghest thought,
And on my gayest tooments Mole;
'Tuna end, yet sweet—a strange alloy
Of hope and sorrow Intertwined—
THIS autumn brings me rinly loy,
No shadow haunts my mind.
And why la thief The dead leaves fall—
The blossoms wither all of old ;
And winter comas, with snowy pall,
To wrap the earth an chill and cold
The sea-fowl, strung athwart the 'ky,
MITI chant their plaintive monotone—
And why, when leaves and blossoms die
Should I feel joy alone.?
Oh, ask me not—l must not tell;
I dare not all my heart diselase—
A fairy wove a magic spell
Around me, when decayed the rose
Ts o gifts did fading slimmer bring—
'fa o symbols of unfading
I'pon ny finger glows a ring,
Upon my lips—a kiss!
I have 'mown a country society which
withered away all to nothing under the
dry rot gossip only. Friendship once as
firm as granite, dissolved to Jelly, and
then ran away to water, only because of
this ; love that promised as enduring as
the heavens and as stable as truth,:evapo
rated into a morning mist that turned to
a day's long tears, only because of-this;
a father and son were set foot to foot with
the fiery breath of anger that would-npv
er cool between them, only because of
this; and a husband and his young wife,
each straining at the hated leash, which
In the beginning had been the golden
bondage of a God-blessed love, sat mourn
fully beside the grave where all their
love and joy lay burid, and only because
of this. I haVe seen faith transformed
to mean doubt, hope give place to grim
despair, and charity take to itself the
feattires of black malevolence, all because
of the spell words of scandal and the
magic mutterings of gossip.
Great crimes work great wrongs, and
the deeper tragedies of human life spring
from its - larger passions ; but woeful and
most melancholy are the uncatalogued
tragedies that issue from gossip and de
traction ; most mournful the shipwreck
often made of noble natures and lovely
lives by bitter winds and dead salt-waters
of slander. So easy to say, yet so hard
to disprove—throwing on the innocent,
and punishing them as guilty or unable
to pluck out the stings they never see,
and silence the words they never hear.
Gossip and slander are the deadliest and
the cruelest weapons man has for his
Prudence, ladies and gentleman, pru
dence! But what is prudence ? Not
meanness—not to' possess a niggardly
disposition. To be prudent is not to be
wasteful; but to save everything you
can for your own and others' use—a pin
and a penny, a crust of bread add a pota
to, u scrap of paper and an inch of
cloth. This disposition is far removed
from parsimony, and is a 'virtue which
all should appreciate. It is painful to
witness the, waste in some families.
Large pieces of bread are 'suffered to
mould, and are then given to the hop ;
potatoes become sour and are useless,
and the leavings of a good meal to-day
are thrown away, when they might an

such people it is waste—nothing but
We love economical people—we do
sincerely—and never have we had reason
to complain of their meanness. Every
thing about their dwellings looks neat
and tidy, and when you sit down to a
meal, you can eat comfortably, without
thin king of the peck of dirt.
Our young men and women miss it
sadly when they expend so much upon
their persons. Every week or two they
want something new, before their old
garments are half worn out. They must
learn prudence, or want at some future
day will sit on their doorsteps. '
A NEW LocAL.—A Chicago paper says :
"We took a new reporter on trial yester
day. He went out to hpnt items, and
after being away all day, returned with
the following, which he said was the
best he could do : 'Yesterday we saw a
sight which froze our muscels with hor
ror. A hackman,' driving down Clark
street at a rapid isice, came very near
running over a nurse and two children.
There would have been one of the most
heart-rending catastrophes ever record
ed had not the nurse, with wonderful
forethought, lefrthe children at home be
fore she went out, and providentially step
ped into a drug store just before the hack
passed. Then, too, the hackman, just
before react:dig the crossing, thought of
something he had forgotten, and turn
ing about drove in an opposite direction.
Had it not been for this wonderful con
currence of favoring circumstances; a
doting father, a loving mother, and affec
tionate brothers and sisters would have
been, plunged Into the deepest woe and
most unutterable funeral expenses.'
The new reporter will be retained."

distance out of the village is in the habit
of frequently coming into town anti
drinking to inebriation. At such sea

M-. Recently, he made one of his,
visits, became decidedly tipsy, called
upon Judge M-, and desired the
Judge to write him a pledge, asserting
his intention to cease drinking. His
Honor wrote the pledge, as desired, and
the tipsy individual affixed his name
thereto. He then desired to have the
pledge, that he might take it home and
exhibit it to his wife. His Honor thought
he was himself the proper custodian of
the important agreement, but yielded to
the solicitations of the man, at the same
time assuring him that if he broke the
contract and appeared before him in a
state of intoxication he would have him
locked up. A week elapsed, and the
Judge was confronted by the same
man, as tipsy as aforetimes. "How
Is this?" said His Honor, "did I not
tell you I would hive you locked up if
you did not keep your agreement?"
"Judge M.," said the tipsy fellow,
"you think lam a fool ! I know what I
ant about. I'll show you if lam a fool!"
and he drew forth his wallet front his
pocket, took out his pledge, unfolded its
worn creases, and holding Stop trium

About a month ago ayoung man, sales
man in one of the leading houses in
Paris, saw a young lady enter, to whom,
during tiapast eight or ten days, he had
_sold a ntinher of dresses, shawls, gloves,
ac. By her accent he surmised that she
must be a New York lady. The stran
ger was very •protty, and naturally the
young man made himself agreeable and
attentive. Whenever she visited the
store she always addressed herself to
him, and, while examining the *dicies
he placed before her, talked much. The
day we speak of she was far less com
municative than usual; and after having
made a somewhat hurried selection, she
said to the clerk : -
"I shall be at the hotel In one hour ;
here is the address. Bo kind enough to
accompany the porter when he brings
Wlt6 these words she bowed reserved
ly, and Nastily left the store.
no young man was at a iO9B what to
think. HOweilrer, an hour later he en
tered the apartment of the American
lady, who invited him sansfaean like an
acquaintance of long standing, to lunch
with her. Although thinking his cus
tomer's manners somewhat strange, the
clerk accepted. While partaking of tea
and cakes, the young lady somewhat ab
ruptly addressed her guest, saying:
"Sir, are you brave enough to protect
a woman against any insult to which
she may be subjected? Answer me with
truth and candor."
"Without conceit, 1 say yes," answer
ed the young man.
"Very well. You work in order to
make money. Is it not so?"
"This is what I wish topropose. lam
alone, or almost alone, in the world ; my
fortune or my actions concern no one but
myself; I wished to see the exhibition
and know Paris. But I perceive that
there is nothing more (Montt than for
a woman to be in your country without
a protector. You please me, and, if you
do not object, you shall be my Champion.
I will repay you for your lost Brae."
The young man tried to speak, but she
immediately resumed :
"I insist on remunerating you ; this is
strictly smatter of business; I regard it
in thatlight. Acceptor decline. Which
shall it be?"
"I accept," answered the clerk, after a
"1 am satisfied," continued the stran
ger, "that you are a gentleman, and will
not make yourself ridiculous by making
love and flattering me, for I warn you
that the very first compliment you pay
me ends our contract. .Is it agreed?"
"Madam, I am at your service."
"From this moment! I require only
time to write to my employers."
And the teems of this extraordinary
compact wbre entered into by the hitter.
The clerk was charming; he proved
himself intelligent, attractive, delicate,
without all that smolt talk men general
ly delight to inflict ou women. In fact,
the American'lady was truly delighted
with the choice she had made. Two
weeks after she handed the amiable clerk
a heavy roll of bills. and they separated,
mutually pleased with each other.
But it happened as the lady was about
to embark for England, thence to embark
for America, a commissioner hastened
towards her and inquired if she was Miss
X. Upon answering itt the affirmative,
he placed a small box and a letter in her
hand. The box contained a diamond set,
the letter a few words - only, but so well
chosen to express true affection that the
'young lady started, not for London, but
back to, Paris. It Is needless to say that
the letter was from the young clerk,
who had taken this method of returning
the money forced upon him by the young
lady for services rendered. (Ile had not
given her his address, think lag the mat
ter was ended.) Ile was not likely to
have returned to his former employer.
Ultimately she learned he had taken in
another house a situation far infer
ior to the one he had formerly
occupied. Probably till then she was
undecided as to her course, for when she
heard this, her mind was made dhe
wrote; he came at once. They will be

The special train in which the Emper
•or Napoleon went with his suit from
Paris to Salzburg, is described as exceed
ing in comfort and elegance anything of
the kind that has hitherto been known.
The train consisted of nine carriages, com
municating with each other by tasteful
ly decorated bridges. In the middle was
a handsome sitting-room, furnished with
chairs, ottomans, sofas - , mirrors, pictures,
clocks and chandeliers. On one side of
this room was the dining room, and on
the other the Emperor's study. In the
middle of the dining-roan there was a
I table, capable of being extended or con
traeted at pleasure, with easy chairs
ed parallel to the carriage. The Empe-.
roes study contained an elegant writing
table, a clock in the stock of the retie's
' sauce, a thermometer, a barometer and a
telegraph apparatus, by means of which
telegraphic communication was estab
lished with the apartments of the various
court officials traveling with his Majesty.
Next to the study was the bedroom of
the Emperor and Empress, with two
beds placed transversely against the sides
of the carriage. Two dressing-rooms
attached to the bed-rooms. The remain

Wine-cellar, and the appartments of the
Emperor's suit. There was also a con

narrow escape in the town of Sebec,
recently. Two little girls, daughters of
Philip Badger, aged live and seven years,
were playing around the well, in which
was a pump, when the youngest stepped
-upon a plank in the platform that had
become loose, and was precipitated into

with about six feet of water. There was

would have it, a horse was ready harness

succeeded in getting the little girl out

pose. She had been holding on to the
pump for twenty minutes, encompass&
