The evening coach was full—"so full that
it was an. imposition on the passengers,"—
so said Miss Trimmer, ♦who with two or
three pattern hats and a box of artificial
flowers, was the last one to enter, notwith
standing the inconvenience to which she put
her fellow passengers.
The village Squire—never too amiable—
was returning from court, where he bad been
non-suited in a caseinvolving about a fiftieth
part of his estate; of course he was morose
and impatient. A worn looking woman
was trying to quiet a restless baby, by toss
ing it up where there was not room to toss
a bird, because a simpering school-girl on
the next scat had whispered aloud to her
very young gallant that "babies were a nai
-1 aande in a stage-coach, and that she should
i think any one would rather stay at home
than travel with one." Poor, unfortunate
baby; poor, sensitive, widowed motherl—
Theirs was no pleasure trip; they were go
ing, uncertain of a welcome, to a relative of
the newly dead, the only one on earth of
whom they could ask aid. Comfort or pity
the mother did not look for. it was be
tween these and the surly Squire that Miss
Trimmer bad inserted herself. At the cruel
remark of the incipient belle, the widow
turned her heed to wipe away a tear, when
her innocent half-yearling grasped with her
plump hand a huge bunch of .beneyauckles
and carnation pinks Whisk dangled from the
near side of Miss Trimmer's bonnet.
"win no one take pity on met" shrieked
the bearer of the flower burden. "Will no

Trimmer pat her head out of the coach win

whip for a whole minute, u he gazed at the
happy boy. The father turned round,
smiled, raised his hat and said "good bye"
to his fellow travelers. The surly Squire
laughed and drew home his feet, which had
all the way been stetched out on the widow's
territory, to her great inconvenience, saying
"Beg your pardon, ma'am."' Even Miss

Now don't you see that rosy boy, with the
news of the great acquisition to his family
treasures—a tooth for the - baby—has changed
a coach full of anxious and ill-tempered peo
ple into a cheerful and 01 - 011 kind-hearted
company? Don't you see-how he has made
friends for my little Companion here who is
too young to speak for herself? Why; we
are all better now for rihing with this little
one, and my word for it, you'll think of her
after you go home, too. ,- Then, turning to
the widow, he asked het to whose house she
was going. When shot answered him, he
said, "Oh, it's too-far itkride to-night with

then with careless purpose, I commenced

which sent forth a dull sound, which so
excited my curosity, that I cleared the gath

rel half buried in the earth. Upon a more
careful examination of the ground, I found
the breech-plate and remnants of the lock.
I was busily engaged in examining each ar

exposure had . made upon it, when I was
aroused by the rustle of leaves; turning in
the direction from which the sound pro
ceeded, I beheld an old veteran known far
and wide, as "Old Ranger." His true name,
no one of my acquaintance knew. When
the eldest inhabitant settled upon the banks
of the Darby, he held undisputed sway
throughout the heavy forests, and wild bar
rens. His head was white with the frosts of
many winters, - and his form was bent with
age, yet his eyesight was so good that he
could aim a rifle better than half the boast

could have wished for no person more likely
to unravel the mystery that enveloped the
rifle barrel: I saluted, the old man cordially,
and desired him to rest awile,
"I hare a mystery here my friend, here is
a rifle barrel that I found just now upon
this bank and I desire to know if you are
acquainted with its history," said I.
"Indeed," lie replied, and his eyes
sparkled, while old memories seemed to send
the life blood in a swifter current through
his veins. He took the rust-eaten barrel
from my hand, and giving it a careful ex

"It is fifty years since I first trailed deer
along the banks of the Darby. Early one
fall a man named George Gardner fell in
with me, and after a few days we agreed to
camp during the winter. Some three miles
above on the creek, we built a rough cabin
a:l.a protection against the weather, the wild
ba.dU and the savages. Ono pleasant af
„tainoon in this same month, we started out
to take a range throughout the woods, for
0 double purpose or getting a fresh supply
ork venison, and hunting for a salt lick that
supposed to exist somewhere between
our, cabin and the union of two creeks. Sev
eral hours were spent in the examination of
the banks as far as this, without any success,
and then we thought we would strike out in
to the woods, and try our luck at game. We
struck what is now called the lower end of
Bigot's prairie, just as a small party of
Indians crossed the upper-end. As soon as
we saw them, we put back under cover of
the trees, but their sharp eyes detected us,

started down the creek. With loud yells
they followed closely upon our trails.
"For nearly two miles we kept the same
distance ahead, than taking advantage of a

the stream and started up again on the '
opposite side. Their yells grew fainter and ,
finally ceased altogether, when we pursued

the creek, at the riffle just below what is
now called Ford's eddy. We thought we

PLEASURES OF THE PROFESSION.
On a cold stormy night the doctor is
aroused from his slumbers by a loud rap at
the door, accompanied by the stirring sum
" Doctor, want you to come right kr:tight

"You Leine vitt' to charge nothin' for

The latest freak of the spirit rappers is
the visible appearance of a hand rising
above the table where the operators sit, and
on the same side with them. The deception
has some of the adroitness of the other phe
nomena. of Spiritualism, and has been
promptly detected and exposed. A family
bearing the name of Davenport having
caused considerable excitement in New York
by the practice of showing the "spirit hand,"
the editor of the Nedicitl Gazette attended
one of their exhibitions and detected it.
The boys who did the trtck were placed at
one side of the table, and the skeptics at the
other, the former having their hands tied to
the chairs, and all being satisfied that there
was no confederate under the table. The
gas was turned down, leaving a very dim
light, and after a few moments a mysterious
hand was seen to ascend slowly from be
neath that side of the table where the boys
were, widely opened, with the palm toward
the spectators, and then slowly disappeared
under the table. One of the skeptics
begged the repetition of the sight,exhiehbo

"spirit hand," and found it to be a staffed

The richest web of Indian loom, •

And these pearls nre pure and mild to behold,
And with radiant lleht they vie;

And the Indy smiled on the worn cid man, .
Through the dark and clustering curls
Which veiled her brow as she stooped to view
His silks and glittering pearls;
And she placed their price in the old man's hand,
And lightly she, turned away; •
But she paused at the wanderer's earnest call—

Where her yoathiul formwtor seen,
Where her eyes shone clear and her dark locks waved
Her clasping pearls between:

And name the price of thy precious gem,
And my pages shall count thy gold."
The cloud went beck from the pilgrim's brow,
As a man and meagre book,
Encased by gold or diamond gem,
From his folding robe he took!

THE GOSPEL TRIUMPHING
IN THE "HABITATIONS OF CRITZLTT."
The chief of Bau, ono of dm Tegjes 'ls
lands, whose people have been obstinately at
tached to cannibalism and cruelty, with
about 300 chiefs and attendants, and the
priest of his household gods, renounced hea
thenism and embraced Christianity, April
27th, 185.1; and on the following Sabbath,
about 300 more. Shortly after, the temples
were despoiled of their ornaments, and the
idol gods were taken away. A sacred for
eat was attacked. Messengers werelent to
several islands directing the inhabitants to
renounce idolatry; every Sabbath added to
the numbers assembling to hear the gospel.
The Wesleyan missionaries who were labor
ing in those islands, say that Bettis convert
ed from heathenism to Christianity, and they
now labor for its conversion from sin to ho
liness. More than-1,300 have nominally
embraced Christianity. The collimation*
increase, and the truths of revelation aeons
