Showers the thirsty land refreshing;

Long been slighting, grieving thee!
Has tiie world my heart been keeping?

Another lady; but quite different
from the other —a slender, little, cast
down lady with a head that drooped
like a lily of the valley, and a dress of
brown silk that had been mended and
darned and turned and retrimmed, and
even Xahum Briggs, man and bachelor
as he was, could see how very shabby
it was. Yet she was pretty, with big
blue eyes and shining brown hair, and
cheeks tinged with fair, fleeting color,
bloomed in vivid carmine. And a gold
en haired little lassie clung to her dress,
as like her tiny iilly buds to a bloom
chime of flower bells.
As Nahatn Briggs stood looking at
her, there came back to him the sun

loaning over the fence, with her bright
hair barred with lovely sunset gold,

had quarrelled with years and years
ago, and whose blue eyes had kept
him an old bachelor all his life long.

she asked timidly, with a little quiver
in her lips.

She looked up startled with a sud

cry. with the golden haired girl cling

'We'll talk about the rent afterward/
said Nahum, fiercely swallowing down
a big lump in his throat that threaten
ed to choke him; ' come here little girl
and kiss me. i used to know your
mamma when she wasn't much bigger

Barbara, with her blue eyes still
drooping, went all over the house with

dering it' it was really fifteen years
since the June sunshine lay so brightly
on the clover fields.
' I think the house is beautiful, said
meek Barbara, ' will you rent it to me

want it, Barbara.'
' With the privilege of keeping a few

' No ma'am !'
Barbara stopped and looked wistful

' Yes, 1 do.'
'And that I cannot afford to take

Mr. Briggs, ' I'll give you

A Cambria county paper notices the
death of James Boss. who died a few
weeks Bince in the Poor House of that
county, and says that his career chal
lenges a more than common obituary
notice. In early life, some titty years
since, ho married a Miss Brown of Mif
flin county, and upon the death of his
father-in law, administered upon his
estate. Among the papers found were
a number of unloeated land warrants.
With these in his possession, in 1835
Mr. Boss moved to Cambria county,
and for a time settled at Muneter. —
While here he became impressed with
the idea that there was sufficient va
cant land along the Cleartield Creek,
in the northeastern part of Cambria
county, to fill his warrants.
Acting upon this impulse, in 1837
and 1838, he procured Mr. Jacob Lev
ergood, the then Deputy Surveyor of
Cambria county, to locate a large num
ber of these warrants, which were re
turned to the I nd Office, and accept
ed. He afterwards removed to these
lands, took possession, built saw-mills,
and sold toothers; and continued to
exercise ownership without molesta
tion until 1844.
It seemed from the sequel that these
lands had already been appropriated
by a body of warrants known as the
Barton warrants, and that the title had
become vested in William A. Bayard
and Henry Barclay ; an ejectment to
try the title was commenced in 1844,
for the interest of Henry Barclay—Mr.
Bayard having previously died.
In this action the plaintiff succeed
ed, and the ease went to the Supreme
Court, where the judgment was affirm
ed. Then the action was brought for
the whole bod}', and the title was thus
litigated until about 1861, when the
last case was finally decided. During
this period thore were some seven or

however, it was not tried.
During all this litigation, Mr. Ross
bore himself with singular constancy.

An Alliance correspondent of the
| Canton (Ohio) Repository relates the
following : Some days ago there was
a dancing party given for the benefit
of the Fenians, 011 the outskirts of the
town, and several of the ladies present
had little babies, whose noisy perver
>-ity required too much attention to al
low their ma's to enjoy the ' hop.' A
number of gallant young men volun
teered to guard the infantry while the
ladies engaged in the 'break-down.'
j No sooner bad the mothers left their
cherubs in the hands of the mischiev
ous wretches, than they stripped the
darlings, changed their clothes, giving
the apparel of one to another. The
dance over, the mothers each took, as
she thought, her own baby, and hur
riedly left the scene of gaieties and
started lor their homes several miles
apart, being far on the way before the
' peep-o -day.' On tho following day
t here was a tremendous row in the set
tlement. Mothers discovered that &
single night had changed the sex of
their babies, and then commenced
some of the tallest female jpedestrian
ism. Living miles apart, it required
two days to unmix the littio cherubs,
aud will require as many weeks to re
store the mothers to their natural
sweet disposition.
