And Mr. Moore, who was sitting in a rocking chair, amusing himself with poking the fire, laid down the tongs he held and gravely answered his wife: ' But, my dear, you have already said so one hundred times, and were you to say it one hundred times more. Hose would not become less ugly for }*ou r saying so.' Rosanna was a little girl of about fourteen She was their only* child, and to do her mother justice, was real ly very ugly—nay, almost revolting; with her little gray eyes, flat nose, large mouth, thick protruding lips, red hair, and, above all, a form remarka bly* awry. Rose was, then, very ugly—but she was a sweet girl, nevertheless. Kind and intelligent, she possessed a mind of the highest order. Nature seemed to havo compensated her with every good quality of the hoart for the want of every beauty of person. The poor little thing was profound- i ly hurt, as she listened to her mother's observation : ' Oh, you little fright, you , will never get a husband.' Eight o'clock struck; Mrs. Moore' was sorely vexed. 4 Go to bed, Rosanna.' Tremblingly the little girl approach ed her mother, to give her the kiss of goodnight. ' Tis useless, you little monster,' said her mother. A tear rolled from the little one's eye. She hastily wiped it away, and j turning to the father, presented him, the yet humid cheek lie kissed her tenderly. ' 1 am not altogether miserable,' she > murmured, leaving the room. Retiring to her chamber, she coin 1 ineneed embroidering a scarf, andj worked thus part of the night, for she i desired to present it to her mother, when she arose in the morning. The clock struck twelve. She had just finished, and putting it by, the lit tie girl calmly resigned herself to rest I lie repose was undisturbed. On the morrow Rose presented the! scarf to her mother. What was the| pain the little one experienced, when i her mother received it coldly, and ex pressed none of those tender sentiments which were to have been the sweet lit tle one's reward. Her eyes, by chance, glanced over a neighboring mirror. 'Yes,' she said, internally, 'I am! ugly—they are right,' ami she sought! in her own head to find a remedy for ugliness. And then in the world—new pangs wounded the little ugly one's heart. A first impression alienated all the young | girls of her own age —but then she was! so good, so amiable, so amusing, that they approached, then listened, and then loved her. Now, indeed, our lit j tie one was happy. One daj* Mr. Moore went home in a violent passion, and became, in conse quenco of some trifling prevarication,! highly incensed against his wife. Their domestic felicity was troubled for eight! long days; for eight long days Mrs. Moore was continually crying. Ho sanna in vain racked her young brains j to discover why—but her father still continued angry, and her mother wasj stiil continually weeping. At last she reflected in her mind how to reconcile them. They were all three seated in the! parlor—Mr. Mooro was arranging the tire—when this was concluded, hoi threw the tongs from him, snatched a book from the mantle, and opened it abruptly; but, after a moment's pcru-1 sal, be closed it again, in a violent hu mor, east a fierce glance at his tremb ling wife, and hurriedly rose from his chair. Rosanna, deeply moved, clasped her arms about his neck, as he was about to rise and affectionately caressed him. He oould not reject her innocent coax ing, and the little girl, thinking she had succeeded in touching his heart, took in her hands the moistened hand kerchief wherewith her mother had been drying her weeping eyes, and I dried them a second time therewith ; she then tenderly embraced her moth er, who returned her affectionate caress with all a mother's fondness. iho parties being now favorably dis-j posed, naught remained but to estab lish the peace. This was no easy mat ter—neither would make the first over-i tnre and without the penetration of' little Rose thoreconciliation would not have taken place. She took her father's hand between her own little hands, and pressed it to her bosom; she then took her mother's hand, aud joined it to her father's, as it lay near her heart. Human pride; could resist no longer—th<- alienated ' parents rose at tho same moment and cordially embraced each other. h rout that hour Rose was tho idol of them both. Six years after this, Rosanna, the ugly Rosanna, was the ornament of every society to which her mother pre j sen ted her. Amiable, witty, and ob j serving, her conversation was univer sal I}* courted. One summer evening, the sun, which during the day, had shed over nature an intense heat, had just disappeared, leaving the horizon covered with long, wide bands of red—clouds more and more dark were heaping themselves on the eastern sky—tho atmosphere was suffocating, and one would dfeem the earth returning to the sun the heat she had been receiving from the latter during tho day. All was heavy and wear}' —the air inhaled seemed rather to suffocate than nourish. A drowsy languor overcame every one ! In a saloon, whose every window; was thrown open, might be seen glid ing, here and there, in the darkened light, groups of young females, whose I white dresses, slightly agitated by the! rising breeze of tho evening, offered something mysterious and poetical j whereon the imagination loved to! dwell. A low laughing whisper was then heard, like the soothing murmur of some distant rivulet. A young wo man, seated before a piano, was ex pressing her heart's sentiments by an 1 extemporary melody, now smooth and tender, now deep and trembling. No more whispering, but a general j (silence took place, for hers was a celes-j tial symphony, a seraph's song. Lord Underwood, a fine, blue-eyed (young nobleman, was so deeply touch ed by the melody, that his frame seem ed agitated by a momentary convul sion. Jle listened to the angel's voice, so softly harmonizing with the tones of the instrument, and f dt an indescrib able sensation thrill through his frame. The music ceased, but the sweet voice stiil vibrated on Underwood's ear, and there was a charm in the wit ty and original trifle to which he list ened, that transfixed him where he stood. ' How beautiful must that young girl be,' thought Underwood. 4 Happy the ! man on whom may fall herchoice,' and ■ he involuntarily sighed. Suddenly lights were brought in.— The young woman was ugly Hosanna Lord Underwood was stupefied—he closed his eyes, but the charm of tbatj voice haunted his memory. lie gazed on her a second time, and he found her less ugly j and Hose was, indeed, less ugly. The beauties of the mind seem- ; ed transferred to her person; and her! gray eyes, small as they were, ex pressed wonderfully well her internal sensations. Lord Underwood wedded Rosanna,! and became the happiest of men in the possession of the kindest and most lov-! ing of women. Beauty deserts us, but virtue and talents, the faithful companions of our lives, accompany us to the grave. MISCELLANY. Ituiuaiue in Ileal B.ile. The Cleveland Herald says: We met a gentleman to day, seeking his wife, who, it seems, was in this place when last heard from, having come from an Eastern city. There is a strange story ! connected therewith, which tiie gen tleman has no objection to our giving here. Eight years ago, this gentleman, whom we shall call Mr. George , left his young wife with his mother, then residing in the city of I) , and started overland to California. While! upon his journej-, the party of which he was a member was attacked by the j Indians, and he was carried into cap tivity. Ho escaped from them about a year afterwards, and reached San Francisco determined to go home,; taking passage in a steamer for that; purpose. Three days out the steamer was burned, and he, among a few others, was saved by the efforts of a boat's crew belonging to a vessel! bound for San Francisco. Having lost his money in this disaster, he sailed for Australia, which point he reached in a very destitute condition. Ho was sick, and remained in the hands of the phy sician for many long months. When able to travel he started for home, and ! when within five days front New York j the vessel was overtaken and captured j LEWISTOWN, MIFFLIN COUNTY, PA- by a rebel privateer, and taken into a southern port lie was conscripted into the rebel army and forced to tbc front. He was made a hospital stew ard. which gave him a good opportu nity to aid wounded 1 Boys in Blue,' ami saved him from taking a seeming part with the rebels. YV lien the war was over he come north, and at once sought his home. The old house was deserted Sadly ho turned to an old neighbor for explanation. This friend, who could hardly believe the story, told him that about three months after he had started for California, a letter reached them from a member of the outgoing party, informing the young wife that George had been killed by the Indians. She had mourned for him a long time, and then a friend of her husband had married her, and, to gether with the aged mother, had gone West. He is now seeking them. j Hidden Treasure Found. ftumors of treasure being found have for several days been afloat, and to-dav assume the semblance of truthful real ity. It appears that while some negro men were digging a well on Monday last, on a lot in the upper part of the city, belonging to the estate of Joseph Sierra, deceased, they encountered a brick vault, and breaking through it found a chest with the key in it, so rus ty that it broke in the attempt to turn it. Attached to a ring on the doer of the chest by a wire was a brass plate so marked as to indicate the amount of special deposit. This was copied by one of the negroes who participated in unearthing the chest and has been dealt unfairly with by his comrades. Hi-; figures are almost in hieroglyphics, but parties who have examined them say that the sum is §340,000. There <tre many conflicting statements among negroes who are supposed to know ol the affair, and the whole thing may be much exaggerated, but some treasure certainly has been found, and four of the negroes supposed to have control of it tire nowhere to be found. As the matter has assumed such interest in the community, wc shall endeavor to obtain a detailed account of it. The concealment must date back to the .Spanish occupation.— l'ensacola Obser ver. Hoys I'slns Tobacco. A strong and sensible writer savs a good, sharp thing, and a true one, too, lor boys who use tobacco : 'lt has ut terly spoiled and ruined thousands of boys. It tends to the softening and weakening of the bones, and it greatly injures the brain, the spinal marrow, and the whole nervous fluid. A boy who smokes early and frequently, or in any way uses large quantities of to bacco, is never known to make a man of much energy, and generally lacks muscular and physical as well as men tal power. We would particularly warn boys, who want to be anything in the world, to shun tobacco as a most baneful poison. The laws of health are infallible; the relation between transgression and the penalty is invari able, and the infliction of the latter is certain to follow upon the former.— There is nothing about which young persons are more beguiled and deluded, than the belief that the}- can trans gress natural laws and jump the pen alty. Punishment for a violation of natural law is just as certain as that the sun itself shines, and none can vio late a law ot his body or any part of it, that there is not registered in him a penalty. A Wolfs Device. A singular circumstance, exhibiting in a remarkable degree, the reflecting faculties of a wolf, is related as having taken place at a small town on the borders of Lake Champlain. A farmer one day, looking through tho hedge of j his garden, observed a wolf walking j round about bis mule, but unable to get at him, on account of the mule's! constantly kicking with his hind legs, j | As the larmer perceived that his beat | was so well able to defend itself, lie' ; considered it unnecessary to render him any assistance. After the attack and defence had lasted full a quarter of an hour, the wolf ran off to a neigh boring ditch, where he several times plunged into the water. The farmer imagined he did this to refresh himself after the fatigue he had sustained, and had no doubt that his mule had gained > a complete victory; but in a few tnin utes the wolf returned to the charge, and, approaching as near as he could to tho head of tho mulo, shook him self, and spurted a quantity of water into the mule's eyes, which caused him immediately to shut them. That mo ment tho wolf leaped upon him, and j killed tiie poor mulo before the farmer could come to his assistance.

Vol. 57, No. 26. Children's Column. TOSSED BY 4 DEER. BY WM. WIKT SIKES. '\ou may talk about being hoisted over a stone fence by a mad bull,' said old Dave, as I sat by bis cabin fireside one night; 'but if it comes to a choice between being hoisted by a deer and being hoisted by a bull, give me the bull. 'But a deer will not run at you as a I mad bull will, I should think,' was my i reply. 'I thought the deer was the most timid of animals.' 'So he is, generally, said the veteran hunter, replenishing the cavity in his cheek with a huge quid of tobacco; •but I'll tell you how a deer hoisted me once, up in the lied River country. Perhaps j-ou never saw an elk as big as a horse. That's the size those Red River fellows often get to be. I was out on a hunt in the fall of '4B, along with two of my old companions, good men and true; and we suddenly came upon a herd of elk feeding on a hill f side as quiet as so many cows. They had no notion of our presence, as wo came upon them from the woods, and saw them before we had left the trees. We squatted in a clump of under growth us quick as we caught sight of them, without making any noise. They would have smelt us, of course, if the wind had been blowing towards them, for the keenness of their smell is won derful. Let a man get within a mile mile of a herd that is feeding to leeward of him, and the way they'll scatter will be a caution. You may talk about the scent of a dog, but it is nothing to that of an elk. The head fellow of them is always on the watch; and when he feels that smell of a hul man being touching his dewy nose, away he goes like a shot, and the rest after him. Well, we three, crouching there under the bush, whispered with each other what to do, and a minute after, Joe Belker started back into the woods as still as he could go. Where was he going ? He was going around a long stretch to come towards the herd from the other sido of the hill, and drive them down upon us. We were to keep as still as we could till wc heard them coming, and then up and tire. It seems as if Joe never would get around, he was gone so long, and we were thinking something had happened to him; but just then wo beard a roaring noise, and we knew the herd were coming. Wc did not lie there quiet, of course; if we had, we would have been trampled to death in no time. Each of us jumped to his feet, and popped behind a big tree just in timo. The herd came crashing through the woods, tearing away the limbs with their huge spreading horns with a mighty racket. We each took aim at one of the herd. My compan ion's ball went right through the heart of a noble fellow, who leaped up into the air and fell dead on the spot The elk I had shot at was a huge one. I knew I had hit him; but as it was, he had strength enough to run on apiece with the herd. But as the rest of the bounding fellows disappeared in the distance, I saw my victim drop upon the ground in a little opening of the wood just beyond, and close his eyes in death. \Y bile Belker and Smith were attending to their prizes,l start ed off after mine. My knife was out, and I had taken him by the head to finish the work, —as I saw by his quiv ering that life still lingered,—when the j huge animal staggered to his feet, and I felt myself spinning through the air. Even as 1 flew I felt my death had come; for soon as 1 touched ground again the elk would be upon me, and would gore me through and through. Tho chance of my getting caught be tween his horns, the way I did when he threw me, was one out of a thousand, and the second time would he death, of course. Hut Belker had seen me as 1 went up, and before I came down ho had put a ball through the animal's heart. Well, now, I've knocked around in the world a great deal, as you know; but in all my life I never took any thing that shook me up as had as that deer hoist did. 1 believe I'd rather bo blown up on a steamer, run ovor by a herd of buffalo, or hugged by a bear a head taller than myself,—all of which L hare been, in my time—than to bo : sent a spinning through the air in that way, with a wounded deer waiting tor me to come down.' Oliver Optics Boy's and Girl's Magazine. A Grateful Tiger. A caged tiger had a live dog thrown to it ono day tor its dinner. Not being very hungry, the usual!}* fierce creature did not touch the trembling little vic tim. This quietness gave the dog i courage, and he began to lick the tiger's eyes which were sore. This act | seemed pleasant to the wild beast, and j the dog continued from time to time, till the eyes of this savage animal got well. The tiger from that time took ! his tiny four legged doctor under his patronage, looked upon him kindly, and allowed him to eat what he chose of the food thrownjnto his pen Hence forth they lived like bosom triends. Thus, you see, even the fierce tiger can ho grateful for a little favor. How much more, then, should children learn to be grateful to their friends for the groat favors they have received.
