Curious Mode of Getting a Wife
One little att of politeness will sortie
times have the way to fortune and pre
ferment. The following sketch il los
trates this fact :
A sailor, roughly garbed, was saun
tering through the streets of New Or
leans, then in -a rather damp condition
from recent rain and rise of the tide.—
Turning the corner of a much frequent.
ed alley, he observed a young lady stand
ing in much perplexity, apparently
measuring the depth of the muddy wa
ter between her and the Opptisite . side
walk with no very satisfied countenance.
The sailor paused, for he was a great
admirer of beauty; and certainly the
fair fate that peeped out from under
that chip hat, and auburn curls hanging
glossy and unconfined over her muslin
dress, might tempt a curious or admir
ing glance. Perplexed, the lady put
forth one little foot, when the gallant
sailor, with characteristic impulsiveness,
"That pretty foot, lady, should not be
soiled with the filth of this lane; wait
for a moment only, and I will make you
a path.
So, springing past her into a carpen
ter shop ppposite, he bargained for a
plank board that stood in the doorway,
and coming back to the smiling girl,
who was coquettish enough to accept
the services of the handsome young
sailor, he bridged the narrow black
stream, and she tripped across with a
merry "thank you," and a roguish smile,
making her eyes as dazzling as they
could be, •
Alas! our young sailor was perfectly
charmed. What else could make him
catch up and shoulder the plank and
follow the little witch through the
streets to her home. She twice per
formed the ceremony of "walking the
plank," and each time thanking him
with one of her eloquent smiles. Pres ,
catty our young hero saw the young la
dy trip up the marble steps of a palace
of a house, and disappear within its
rosewood entrance. Fora full moment
he stood looking at the door, and then,
with a wonderful big sigh, turned away,
disposed of his drawbridge and return
ed to the ship.
The next day he was astonished with
an order of promotion from the captain.
Poor Jack was speechless with amaze
ment. He had not dreamed of being
exalted to the dignity of second mate's
office on beard of one of the most splen
did ships that sailed out of the port of
New Orleans. He knew he Was com
petent, for instead of spending his mon
ey for amusements, visiting theatres,
bowling alleys on his return from sea,
he purchased books and became quite a
student; but he expected years to inter
vene before his ambitious hopes would
be realized.
His superior officers seemed to look
upon him with considerable leniency,
and gave him many a fair opportunity
of gathering marine knowledge, and in
a year the handsome, gentlemanly young
mate had acquired unusual favor in the
eyes of the portly commander, Captain
Hume, who had first taken the smart
little black eyed fellow, with his neat
tarpaulin and tidy bundle, as cabin boy.
One night the yong man, with all the
officers, was invited to an entertainment
at the captain's house. He went, and,
to his astonishment mounted the identi
cal steps, up on which two years before
had tripped the bright vision he bad nev
er forgotten. Thump went his brave
heart, as he was ushered into the parlor;
and like a sledge hammer it beat again,
when Captain Hume introduced hisblue
eyed daughter, with a pleasant smile, as
"the young lady once indebted to your
politeness for a safe and dry walk home."
His eyes were all blaze, and his brown
cheek flushed hotly, as the noble ca.
twin sauntered away leaving the fair
tirade flume at his side. And in all
that assembly there wilt trot so handsome
a couple as the gallant sailor and the
"pretty ladie."
It was only a year from that time the
second mate trod the quarter d'etk, sec
ond only in Command, and part owner
with the 'captain, riot only in the vessel,
but in the affections of his daughter,
gentle Grace iiunre, whb had always
'cherished 4espect, to say nothing of love,
for the bright-eyed sailor.
His homely but earnest act of polite•
ness towards his child hadolehed the
captain and, though the youth knew it
blot, was the cause of his first promotion.
So that now the old man has retired
form business, Harry Wells is Captain
Wells, and Grace Hume, according to
polite perlance is Mrs. Captain Wells.
In fact, our honest sailor is one of the
richest men in the. Crescent City, and
he owes, perhaps, the greatest part of
his prosperity to his tact and politeness
in crossing the street.

A SINGULAR DEATH.-A person nam

tween Chatillon and Plessis-Piquet, tb
which he Is in the habit of going with his

however, has no opening toward his

that this house was inhabitedby any one,
and was therefore somewhat surprised,
while working in his garden the even
ing of Sunday week, to see a stone tied
to a string let down from the loophole,.
and with a piece of paper attached to it.
Thinking it was merely the frolic of
some children who might have got into
the house, he took no notice of it, and
left on Monday morning as usual. On
his return en Saturday following he
was surprised to see the stone paper
still hanging there, and taking the lat
ter, he opened it. To his astonishment
he found written on the paper, "I am
seriously ill, and cannot move. -Crime
to my assistance for the love , of Heaven."
S— was in consternation, and call.
log to his assistance a man who work
log in an adjoining field, they broke into
the house, and on the ground they found
the lifeless body of a man lying on the
floor. Near him was a sheet of paper
on which was written, "Write immedi
ately to M. Reu St. Louis,
Versailles." Au inquiry was immedi
ately instituted, when it was found that
the deceased, after a life of dissipation,
had, with what remained of his fortune,
purchased the little cottage where he had
lived alone, going out merely to take his
meals at a wine shop near. a s— re
proaches himself for not having looked
at the paper first, as the poor man's life
might in all probability have kten,saved.
A New York paper reports the last
case of roguish audacity. A lady went
into a store to purchase a shawl. Just
as she was handing the clerk two fifty
dollar bills she received 'a blow on the
face from a well dressed person, who
exclaimed, "I forbade you buying a
shawl," and snatching the money from
her hand, ha evaporated. The lady
fainted, and on recovering, the merchant
expressed suprise that her husband
should have acted so ungentleziranly;
but his surprise was greatly increased
when the lady informed him that it was
not her husbnd, and that she bad never
seen him before. 'The bold thisfrhow
ever, had ,made good'his escape.

—'very body has read of Jules Gerarit,
the lion-killer, and his wonderful en-.
counter in the jungles of Africa. When
Gerard came back to Paris the last time
from his favorite amusement in Africa,
he suggested toDevisme, the well-known
gun-maker of the Boulevard des Italiens,
the idea of inventing a ball that would
explode when it arrived in the animal's
body. The new projectile is about the
size of the Minnie ball; its penetrating
force is equal to the common ball; Ar
rived in the animal's body it explodes
like a bomb, and, of course, causes the
sudden death of the animal. If shot
into the lungs of an elephant, fur ex
ample, the ball, in exploding, disengages
carbonic acid gas, and the animal, which
from its size might otherwise survive
for a short time, will suddenly fall as
phyxiated. A few days ago a party of
gentlemen aceompanied M. Devisme to
a horse slaughter-house in the environs
of the city. There the new projectile
was tried on five horses who were stand- i
ing tied to a fence waiting to be shot.
They were each shot in the lungs, the
ball exploded, and the animal fell dead.
The experiment was completely ttatis
factory. Since then, M. Deviame, to
demonstrate the practicability of his
new projectile as a substitute for the
harpoon in the destruction of whales,
has gone to Havre, not with the hope
that a whale would present itself to be
killed, but to try the experiment on an
artificial whale that would respond in
its resistance to a real one. The ex
periment was entirely successful, and
those who witnessed it assert positively
that the substitute for the harpoon is.,
thunder storm, on Sunday night the sth
inst., a young man named Andrew Cook,
employed in the foundry at Chambers
burg, was riding in an open buggy,
and when opposite the new Jail_a vivid
flash of lightning followed instantly by
a frightful peal of thunder seemed to
produce effects upon the young man
and horse of a most singulai character.
The horse was stunned and unable to
move and the young man after urging
him to go on for some time, but to no
purpose, left him and proceeded to walk
to his residence, a distance of several
hundred yards. He felt no bodily in

but represents himself as being confused
in his mind. He reached the door of
the house where he fell and was carried
in and put to bed, and such restoratives
applied as the case seemed to demand.
Oa the following morning, in attemping
to get out of bed, he found himself pow
erless, his legs being completetk para
lyzed. In this condition he has remain
ed ever since though his physician has
some hope that he will ultimately recov
er the use of his limbs. The horse,
though somewhat stiffened, was able
to be used the next day. What renders
this case somewhat remarkable is the
circnmstance of the young man being
able to walk a. considerable distance,
after receiving theciiarge of electricity,
and that such exteiie injury would
follow without any feeling of buffering,
or any of the usual appearance of being
struck by lightning:.
A Srmv4a tiATI.,—We have been
passing Orwell Om tte of gold, which
according to the natural order of
things, to have followed and not pre-
Ceded the era of silver. But the day
of the pale race anion& the precious
metals is abotit to dawn. Our El Do:
rado has become an old affair, and now
we are about to receive an Argentine
sister into our ftepublio. The Gold
State is likely to have as a companion
a Silver State. The projected Territory .
of Arizona is reported to be as richly
endowed with silver mines as California
IS With gold diggings. The Gadsden
Purchase, if all the reports , from that
quarter should prove true, will be al
most as valuable an -km:Widen to our ter-.
ritory as California. The 121i/roil, on
her last passage, brought among het
freight §eVeral packages of silver From
that supposed desett l which are repre
sented as very rich:
Northfolk, Va, on the afternoon of the
2d of uiy, an old cannon which had
not been cleaned out since the Revolu
tion was Vilified, and the match lip.-
plied, when to the surprise of all pres
ent, an unexpectedly stnatt eiplosion
wok place front the mouth of the piece,
something wizzed across the street, and
there was a crashing of the wood in the
door of the United Fire Engine House
opposite. An investigation showed a re
spectable-sized hole in the panel of the
door, and inside an old six-pound can
non-ball was found an the floor. The
old cannon was not used since the time
it was loaded for the especial benefit of
the British troops, seventy years ago,
and the artillery men who then rammed
home the ball little expected how many
times the grass would grow and wither
over them before it would be 'discharged.
The Delaware .Reporter says that a
large quantity or Spanish silver coin
has been found under and above the
wreck of a vessel , on Phoenix Island,
Maryland,just below the southeastern
part of Delaware. The wreck is said
to be that of a Dutch gent° t, which
was lost about fifty years since, having
on board one Million of dollars in specie.
The excitement among the natives is
said to be great. Crops are !eft untill
ed, shops and stores are closed, and thou.
sands of persons are on the breach rak
ing for silver. Some rake up as much
as twenty dollars a day, others not more
that three dollars. The silver is already
in circulation in Sussex County.
Pickle Fortune"-LaThe man who_ firit
discovered gold in California, has be
come a poor man and homeless.. The
papers announce the sale of Hock farm,
the home of Gen. Sutter, on Feather
river, under the Sheriff's hammer. This
was the last of the magnificent domain
which, at one time, was the property of
General Sutter, in California. His gen
erous unsuspecting nature *as not suffi
cient to cope with the shrewdness of
lawyers and speculators, when his lands
became of value ; and so they have all
been wrested from him, much of them,
by what, in the parlace of trade, would
be called 1, legitimate transaction ;"
much by bare faced fraud, says the Alta
F&suloN.—Crinoline, whalebone and
steel hoops are alarmingly an the in
crease in both town and country ; and
these femenine expanders are assuming
huge dimensions of style, if not of beau
ty. Masculinity has looked an in un
complaining astonishment at their in
creasing proportions ;
"And still he gazed, and still the wonder grew."
Men marvelled in silence, and woman
Was not ashamed. • But now,to the hoop,
the flounce is superadded. This is ad
ding insult to injury, and if submitted
to without opposition,heaven only knows
to what lengths,or rather to what breadths
the well known daring of the sex may
lead them. But one thing is certain,
the pocket of man is unequal to his in
dulgent propensities; the purse of mid
dle class humanity must be exhausted
at last; flounces and crinoline will
bring on a crisis which fashion itself
will explode, amid the crash' of milliners,
the wreck of homes!
A young man went out hunting for
deer in the woods near Lanmark, C. W.,
recently, and, as an eipertmkfit, he
clotheti himself in a deer-skin, and took
a stand where those animals were known
to pass quite often. While thus intent
upon securing some game, another hun
ter came near making game of him; for
happening to see what he supposed a fine
deer through the thicket, the new-comer
took deliberate aim at it and fired.. For
tunately the ball missed the counterfeit
deer, but it succeeded iir "frightening
him out of bis sk . ."
