A LAWYER'S STORY It was towards the elose of a March day, a few years ago, as I sat in my office musing over the different cases spread out before me, when I was sud denly startled to my feet by the en trance of a man. Not beeause a man is an uncommon sight; but the appearance of this one made me draw back with fear. He was about three and thirty years of age, with a long, narrow face, small projecting eyes, large mouth, and nose rather long and inclined to droop. at the end: His Thee was as smooth as an infant's, and the few mixed lochs were brushed behind his ears, giving him a look of the mildest character. In size he was of the medium height, legs not the straightest to be sure, yet they matched well with the lean, bow ed arms, which hung awkwardly by his side. After this personage had entered he closed the door noiselessly behind him, took off , his at and , placcd; it carefully on the table. Then, turning and scan ning the room for a moment, he ad vanced toward me. "Your name is —, is it not, sir ?" said the stranger; and without waiting a reply extended his hand. "The same, sir," I replied, and un. ceremoniously put forward my hand, which was seized with a tight grip, then loosened, and the stranger sat himself down in front of me. "Well, as you aro the gentleman I desire to see, I trust that you aro at leisnre to hear my errand to you ?" I nodded my head for him to 'pro ceed, for I could not speak. My tongue seemed lifeless within my mouth, a nd every moment the cold sweat oozed out of every pore till I feared I would fall out of the chair I satupon. Under standing my sign, he proceeded as fel• lows: "My name is Walker—Albert, if you please to have it—and for some 3-ears I lived out West. But things of late not going on the smoothest in that di rection, I went down to mother's. I found the old lady very sick, and as there is no chance of her getting bet ter, she wished me to call (having bean recommended) and ask you to come up and see how she wished to dispose (Aber estate." "She wishes a will," I managed to Mg "Yes—exactly, Come at once; a carriage is waiting at the door which will soon take us to-our destination." I had some misgivings at first about trusting myself with a stranger in such a manner; but considering that I had nothing to detain mo at my office, I. yielded and soon seated myself in the carriage with the stranger beside me.- I had omitted to ask whore his mother resided, and this accompanied with the thought "I may be with a madman," who are so insidious in their doings, awoke the most revolting imaginations within me. My companion was loan ing back against the seat, and from his outward appearanco I concluded he was courting sleep. I didn't then feel at liberty to press my omitted ques tion. Silently wo rode on, my com panion in his old position,w bile I leaned forward and endeavored to overcast my fancies by admiring the pictu resque scenery without. It was just as the sun had sunk be hind the Western horizon when wo stopped in front of an old fashioned cottage, partly hid by clustering vines and standing back a little way from the river bank. My companion was aroused from his seeming stupor by the halting of the carriagu, and when the door was swung open by the coach man he leaped lightly out, followed by myself'. Up the stoop into the hall I followed him, and here I discovered I had forgot my papers. Without ex pressing to those present my oversight, descended the stops and leaned for ward into the vehicle and recovered my documents. In my endeavors to bo speedy I dropped part of them on the ground. I had just gathered them and was about to rise, when a shadow was thrown across my path. I turned sli g htly, and in a sort of cage with thick iron bars in front, I beheld t h e torm of a woman. Calcthiog my eye she, thrust her arm through the bars and pressed into my hand a piece of paper. I was about to give vent to, my surprise, whey: seeing her fingers Press- -PERSEVERE.- IN, PA., WEDNESDAY, MAY 29. 1867. ed to her lips, I chocked myself, arose, and strode into the house. It was ono of those comfortable, old fashioned houses where ranges, grates and dumb Waiters aro held at a discount. A bright fire burned briskly upon the hearth. As I peeped through the crev• ice of the door I could discern the fa. voile black kettle swung above the lively embers and humming its accus tomed tune in the kitchen. The hall ran through the middle of the house, evidently made upon no contracted principles,for it was exceed ingly long and fully proportioned in width. I was now sitting in the par lor alone, for my companion had gone above. In about ten minutes my companion came in and invited me to partake of a cup of tea ere I commenced my du ties. The offer being accepted, we ad journed to the dining room, sat down to the repast, and conversed upon vari ous matters pleasantly. The note I had received bad almost been forgot ten, when I put my band into my pocket and crushed it between my fin gers. A dizziness came over me for a moment, and I conversed beneath a cloud of insensibility; for the haggard forth of the woman seemed to stand before me pointing her bony finger at Walker. Ile perceived the change and, in an under tone, inquired if I was ill. "No, only excited and nervous ;it will pass away soon," I replied. - Another cup of tea was offered and accepted, and when I had drained the contents I turned •.to my companion, -who, with his elbow upon the table, was eyeing me sharply, and inquired if that, pointing to the servant, was the only domestic around the place. "No sir," he replied,. casting his eyes from me to the floor. "I have one more; she is attending to the wants of mother." Mother I A hollow voice seemed to echo through the silent hall, and fancy sketched grinning Death recording "She's mine." Having finished, my companion led the way up the winding stairs, and opened a small door a few feet from the landing. I had followed on tip too, for be had whispered that his mother was vory sensitive to the least noise, and of courso I had no motive to prompt me bat a desire to follow his intimation. In a few moments we had reached a cecond door by means of a narrow pas sage. When the door was opened I found myself standing in a room, neat ly but not extravagantly furnished. year a large windoW stood a side hoard profusely ornamented with nu merous bottles, cups, glasses, decan ters, and in fact all tho Auxiliaries per taining to a sick room. A little fur ther to the left was a large double bed stead; and by the aid of the almost exhausted candle, 1 could discern the face of a woman. My companion called her attention to my presence, and when I had recog nized the slight nod of her head, she thanked one for my kindness in coming, as she wished my services in executing her will. "I have a copy of the manner in which I wish to dispose of my estate, and I pray you," she added, "to follow it exactly." She then handed me a folded sheet of paper, and I hastily glanced over the con tents. The whole estate, valued at many thousand dollars, was to be divided between her son Albert, and Alioo Brower, her sister. Across the back in a largo hand was the name "Mary K. Walker." I folded it up, and as I did so I as• sured the woman of my, willingness to follow her directions. She turned a little in bed, and us she did so I thought 1 saw massive black hair beneath the white which was combed carolully back from her fore head. I choked down the suspicions which were alive within me, and bent my car to the woman us she spoke. "1 bad a daughter, sir, three weeks ago, but she is no more—she is dead— I'll be with you, child I I'll soon come. Yes,"she added, "I'll be with you soon!" My companion beckoned me; and ri• sing from ray chair I bid her good night and left the room. We descended the stairs without ex changing words, and walked into the parlor. Here my companion pointed to a seat, drew up another to me and said : "You see bow the case stands, Mr. and it behooves you to apply your attention to this matter at once. To-morrow, I trust, you can draw up the paper, and before I bid you good bye, you will have the satisfitetion of" —here ho paused, as t if be had uncon sciously gone too far; but, quickly re covering himself, he added—"of seeing all done for the comfort of mother." Without replying to his remarks I carelessly asked,— "Ah, you intend for me to remain hero all night, then ?" "Certainly. You could never think of getting to the city before daylight, and besides, there is no train mild to• morrow." Under the circumstances, I must submit to his proposal, and being weary I was , upon my request shown to the room I was to occupy, situated just above the apartment of the seem ing invalid. • I bade my companion good night, closed the door, and then wheeled a cushioned chair near the window and sat down diffusing my thoughts throughout the many channels of the world's doings. Thus I sat nodding at the even tick of toy watch, or stretching myself to aroiltie me from this inviting trance. "Ali!' I exclamed, as the thought of the singular woman in such a singu lar place flashed across my mind ; and I plunged my hand into my pochet, and drew forth the document she had giv en mu. Upon a coarse piece of paper, in a cramped hand, were written a few words, blotted as if the tears of the writer. They read as follows : "I am . a prisoner. For God's sake rescue me—for the sake of my dead mother." There was no signature, and for a moment a terrible thought arose in my mind, and I was forced to rise to shake off the spell that bound me— walk, walk, until recollecting myself, I paused at the window. It was a beautiful night. The blue canopy above Was studded with twink. ling stars, and the moon was just rid ing up the heavens in all her power nod brightness. For a few moments I contemplated the scenery without, and then turned into the room. The woman below haunted me. She seemed to have written to me to re lease her. "I will ! I will !" I muttered, be• tween my clenched teeth, as I pulled off my boots, took them in my hand, and swung the door open. I listened—not a sound. Yes, feet aro on the stairs, and a light reflects the shadows of' two men upon the wall beneath me. I stooped over the ban nisters, and caught a fading glance of Walker, ere the door was closed be hind him. I paused upon the landing, pondering whether to proceed or re turn to'my room. A little hesitation, and then determined upon the former. With all the care I could command. I began my descent. It was extreme ly dark, and great judgment was re quired to save me from a fall on those winding stairs. In one hand I bold my boots and with the other grasped tightly the bannisters. Down, down. A loud squeaking noise ,eot my feet upon the third step. I paused before I resumed. "No one has beard me," thought I, as I stepped briskly down until I had reached the bottom. I heard feet upon the floor, and I slunk into a cor ner, covered by a column. The door opened, and Walker, with a light held above his head, peeped out, only for a moment, in breathless anxiety, until all was again still. I reached safely the main ball, after forming no clue of the seeming inval id. I could hear sharp talking, but I had no time to listen. My mission was below. Hero I was in the dark, not knowing which way to turn with safe ty. I could now bear the rattling of glasses and the sound of voices abovo me; but I had made a discovery, and I pushed boldly forward toward a nar row stream of light straight through an opening over a door. I found it a little open, and, pushing more, I peep ; ed with caution within. Thick heavy curtains hung to the windows, and all was darkness; only a smell hole in the outer edge of the curtain admitted the light, which shone-through the opening near the doqr. I stepped softly across the room, pulled back the curtains, admit ted a stream of light, which as I mo- ved,ob, heavens! fell upon the upturned face of a corpse ! I uttered a suppressed cry, started backwards, and my knees shook until I was forced to lean on the window for support. Regaining more courage, I made a survey of the room and the body now lying before me. The place was neatly; furnished with a plain car pet several chairs, sofas, tables, a book case. and several small ornaments on the mantel. Those constituted all, if I add an old portrait hanging against the wall, which resembled the corpse upon which I turned my attention. It was the lifeless form of a woman of sixty•five, very small in size, laid out to all appearances in the very ha biliments she wore prior to her decease. Her hair was of a silver gray. I now raised the window to make my exit. I leaped upon the stops, and trod safely to the balcony. Looking care fully around I grasped the column which supported it, and slid to the ground. Ones there my heart beat freer. I put on my boots. and then sought out my client. I found the prison, and in one cor ner, shivering with the cold, sat the woman. I could not forbear for a mo ment to study the features as they were revealed by the moon. She was a woman of about twenty years, face pale, and thick curls, falling promis cuously' over her forehead. Yet with all the marks of privation, want and misery defined upon her, there was yet a look which denoted one who had seen better days. Upon the door I made as much noise as was consistent, till the inmate awoke, and when she did, she flow to the place where I was standing, cx el•dming : "I know you would come—l knew it I" "Hush, hush !" I repeated in a whis• per. "Be quick. Your safety depends upon it." "Safety ?" eho replied. "Your safety and with it freedom." Her jot-black eyes sparkled at my remarks. "Where is the entrance?" I asked. "There is only one, and that is at the foot of the cellar stairs." I saw there was no hope in that di rection ; so seizing a bar lying at hand I with one desperate effort, wrenched out the bolt, and the girl was free. By chance I looked upward and saw the flash of light, in the room I had so recently occupied. There was no time to be lost. I was missed, and knowing search would follow my ab senpo, I wrapped my coat around the wornau and hurried up the road, lead• lug her by the hand. She told me Walker waa her brother, "and yesterday, lie and my aunt Alice (twitted me with saying that "the old ll'oulan's dead, and you'll soon follow." TERMS, $2,00 a year in advance I saw it all in an instant. "The vil lain!" I muttered,and felt the woman's hand grasp me tightly as the word fell on her ear. On we went till we arrived at a neighbor's house. I aroused the in mates, and then, telling our story, the gentleman called up his sons, and then I marched boldly back to the house. Gaining admittance by moans of a window, we rushed up stairs as several people dashed out of. the room above. "Catch him !" I cried, as Walker fled down stairs in front of me, and with one blow from the fist of one of the sons the wretch and murderer was laid out lifeless in the hall. Up I mounted into the room, and lo I behold the invalid—the dying wo man standing in a corner, with a white wig at her feet, and her own black hanging in disorder round her shoal dom. She, with Walker, and the do mestics, wero seized•and in the morn ing wore marched off to prison. But now for the sad tale—now to lay bare the diabolical plot, which en compassed forgery, robbery, and swin dling within its folds. Walker made a confession to the following effect : That his mother had died the day previous to my corn ing, and seeing that the %vitt which she had made gave him but a pittance of the estate, he destroyed it, and was de termined to have ono of his own. So, by his advice, his aunt answered the mother's place in bed, and she was to make the will, and leave it, as I have related: Thou Mrs. Walker was to be buried, and when his sister, whom it was his intention to murder, was out of the way, he could then show the will, and he and the deceiving aunt were to divide. Ho had shut his sis ter up three weeks before his moth er's death, and with all the coolnes imaginable, ho said he presumed by his reporting her drowned, he hasten ed -her on the road taster than any thing else. The poor girl, corroborated that part relating to herself; and when I had given my evidence, a man step ped forward and produced a warrant for the arrest of Walker upon the charge of murder. murdered a man," replied the officer, "some time ago, and then es. eaped to this place. I have been on his trail a long while, and yesterday traelted him Core." The aunt received a severe sen tence—also, her domestics, accessor ies to the act ; while Walker perished as a criminal upon the gallows. The woman, or Miss Rachel, as I should term her, regained her estate, and gained a victory over all they had done for a will. One of the deepest and darkest plots man could conceive to defraud was brought to light by an unsuccessful ef fort to gain a will. "Nay, peak no ill—a kindly word Can never leave a sting behind; And oh I to breathe each tale we hear, Is far beneath a noble mind." Slander makes its appearance in various forms. It is indulged in by both sexes, and no class is exempt from the pernicious habit. Its com monest form is that of tattling, which is certainly the meanest, lowest, and most detestable practice of which any cynical libel on humanity could be guilty. if there is the person more despicable than another in the eyes of man, it most emphatically is this de based and cowardly scab of society. In England, Charles Dickens says this habit is confined to. a few old women who are the fag-ends and refuse of de cent society; but, alas, it bas become frightfully common with the American people. Go where you will, you will find these fiends in human form. At the tea-table is a common place for them to enjoy an exchange of infor mation. Hero they will unburden themselves of the load they may have gathered, and will receive a new car go, which they will carry home, giro proper shape, and then scatter broad. cast. In the bands of these, a story will undergo about as much change as a snowball will by being rolled down a hill. They pass it up, and roll it down, and when they get through with it, it is a perfect mountain I If these . busybodies were to think for a moment of the injury they do many innocent members of society, they might be more careful. But they never think that titr ahead. It is amusement for them to enlarge and misrepresent trifles, and they always find somebody ready to laugh and en courage them. This is wrong. We all should dis• countenance everything of the kind, and encourage more charitable con versations. If you see a fault in a neighbor, it is not your place to give publicity to it, thereby lowering him in the estimation of the public ; but, rather, by example and kind words, show him his error, and thereby possi bly reform him.

An Operatic Drank, At the police court, one thorning last week, Andrew A. Soarer replied to the usual question of `Were. you drunk 7" as follows : "Hear me, nor may you hoar in vain. I was drunk, with extenuating circumstances. It was not owing to drams, but to dramatic feelings.. I went last night to the opera. lam sett- . sitive, and it Operated on my nerVeS.. "When the • curtain rose the first thing that I saw was a stone altar— hilt it didn't altar. Soon two men came in, The libretto ejahltthey come. in to gas, and I dare' say that the t did. I was not affected in the least, until a young lady came upon the stage, and knelt at the altar in groat distress. That touched me. It Was a Pauline. "I saw Norma, too. She was trying to keep peace in the family. The Gauls were galled by the yoke of Rome.; it egged them on to fight, She would not let them. They must stay at home and not go tp rpam. "Then I wont to sleep, and when I woke up again I saw Norma with a, lamp in one hand and a dagger in tho 'other.. She was looking ferociously at two children who wore asleep. With . lifted dagger she approached the in fants. I wondered what she wanted. She is after an infant, Isighed.' "It sheeked me horribly. The warm tears came in my eyes so that I oould not see, and my head became dizzy. It remained so the rest of the ()Veiling.. That kept me from seeing wliat Nor ma did. Thanks to_ libretto, I know she did not kill the babes. "As the opera went on, my nervous excitement increased It affected my eyes more than anything else. I saw: two Normas—or to speak correctly, I saw Norma and her ghost. They were . exactly alike. "At last Norma herself came to dia, grace. She was tried by the dread-. ful police eourtand found guilty. Them her father took a crown from bor. He didn't oven leave her the customary shilling with *hich ono is cat off. black vail was then flub g over her as an emblem of vales of tears and sor row she would have to travel throttgh, Her funeral pyre was then visible.

But then it was in pah her fitte: She was. born and bred in Gaul. "Then the curtain fell, and the ope-. ra was over. But it had effected mo so, that when I got in the open air I could not walk correctly. In fact, I stagger ed. I bad too much 'Norma.' A po, ]iceman came along, and seemed much struck by my way of walking. I don't know why ho should have been. It isn't a very uncommon way Now Year's. "le asked me whore I lived. answered, 'hearing Norma.' He he-. came angry, and told tag that he would take mo to the tombs for being drunk and calling him names. "It is needless to say that ho kept his word. That is why lam here. I didn't want to come, for I knew you would bo busy this'moroing. Tell me I may go, and see how quickly I wilt do it." The Justice.—" You may go upon the, payment of a fino of ton dollars, I should like to give you leas, but a per son who discovers a now method :,o( becoming drunk is always finod ten, dollars." THE NUTRIMENT or BEER.—Peoplo• who drink their ale and beer are very fond of telling how much nufrinient they derive from them ! Because they aro manufactured from grain, many have the idea that the concentrated virtues of the grain are in the'drinks. This is an entire fidlacy : Professor- Liebig, one of the most eminent chem ists in the world, assures us that 1,400 quarts of host Bavaria beer contain. exactly the nourishment of a two-and - a-half-pound loaf of bread ! This boor is very similar to the famous English Allsepp's, and our more popular Ant erican beer. The fact is, the nutritious portion of :the grain is rotted before beer can be made; and it thy ferment ation of the beer has been complete, Professor Lyon Fairplay , declares that no nourishment whatever remains in the fermented liquor; and, as the Eng-. lish Alliance _News says, "No ebemist now disputes these assertions; for, ex cept in flavor and amount of alcohol,_ the chemical composition of kinds of beer is alike, and brewers must laugh to hear doctors advising porter as more nourishing than beer, when porter is nothing but beer colored by, burnt malt; and often when hoer ”oes wrong in the making, and is unsalable as beer, it is converted into fine porter, the mere coloring covering mipyr , de ! . feats !"—The .Nation. lisrrninattAvk.—lf all the wealth now sunk in the bottomlCSß pit of in temperance were, appropriated to tho, purchase of libraries, philosophical, up-. paratus, or cabinets of oat if ral bitory; : if all the time, that, element of price-. less value, which is now worse thak lost in the various haunts of dissipa tion, were devoted to the reading of well selected books, to lyceum exereisg, to music, or other social and refining arts, it would give to society a new moral and political sonsorium.
