When do I mean to marry ? When—
'Tis idle to dispute with Fate ;
But if you choose to hear me tell,
Pray listen while I fix the date :
When daughters haste with eager feet
A mother's daily toil to share,
Can make the puddings which they eat,
And mend the stockings which they wear ;
When maidens look upon a man
As in himself what they would marry,
And not as army soldiers scan
A sutler or a commissary ;
When gentle ladies, who have got
The offer of a lover's hand,
Consent to share his "earthly lot,"
And do not mean his lot of laud ;
When young mechanics are allow'd
T 9 find and wed the farmers' girls,
Who don't expect to be endow'd
With rubies, diamonds, gems and pearls ;
When wives, in short, shall freely give
Their hearts and hands to aid their spouses,
And live as they were wont to live
Within their sires' one-story houses;
Then, madam—if I'm not too old—
Rejoiced to quit this lonely life,
I'll brush my beaver, cease to scold,
And look about me for a vars.
I was always a lucky fellow, and the
most fortunate thing that ever happened
to me was being born a Smith. Listen.
Three years ago I had just been jilted,
and was out of money. That doesn't
sound lucky; but it was the prelude to the
best of luck. I concluded to go into the
country, down at Plymouth, to my uncle's
house—partly that the murmurs of the
sea might soothe my inward perturbation,
partly to save a month's board.
I stepped on board the early down train.
It was full of silly six o'clock passengers,
mostly men. The sun was shining on the
water, but the fog was hugging the banks,
and clinging to the burnished surface of
the tide. 1 suppose a poet could have
made something pretty out of the sight,
but I only wrapped myself closer in my
overcoat, and looked at it sulkily. After
a while I got listening to two men who sat
"A pretty girl with a fortune isn't al
ways to be had for the asking."
" Oh, but the girl isn't asked, I take it,
It's all arranged by her aunts, and she'll
acquiesce. She's shilling pretty, but a
mere child--not sixteen, I believe. They
had another fellow booked for her, but he
died down in New Orleans of the yellow
fever last fall."
And she's never seen this Smith?"
No, nor they either. The aunts plot
ted with Mr. Dunbar, the guardian, and he
picked Smith up for them, opened a cor
respondence, and got Rose to write a letter
or two. Smith professes to be in love
with her letters, and her picture; but of
course it's the money—forty thousand if
she marries before she's seventeen."
" If the girl amounts to anything, it's a
She does amount to something. She
has the making of a splendid woman in
her, but nobody knows it, or cares. They
are bent only on saving the money for her.
If she forfeits it, it goes to some pet char
ity of her crazy old grandfather's. lie

tric as the d-1."
" You know Smith's'
" Only by sight, but I know a chum of
his, Burton, and got the story, with a
copy of a letter of the girl's. I've seen
her many a time down on the shore, al
ways with her dragon aunts."
" Where's the letter?"
"I've got it here in my wallet. Now,
you know the right sortof a man won't
have his girl's letters hawked about among
his associates. He let Burton take this
copy, and Burton gave it to me. Let me
see—this is it. Listen:
" DEAR MB. SMITH; My aunts wish
me to reply to your kind letter. Ido not
know what to say. lam not accustomed
to writing to gentlemen; but I must tell
you that I was sorry to have aunt Sophy
send you that picture of me; I am not near
so pretty; it flatters me very much. You
are so handsome that you will want a
beautiful wife; so I don't think you ought
to be deceived. I don't want to be mar

of the money; and perhaps it may turn
out right. lam very lonely here. I

There were comments upon, and a
laughing discussion of, the letter, which
was certainly very unique. But as we
rattled along there was a bump, a shock,
the cars stood still, and everybody was in

young man, not unlike myself in looks,

on his forehead.

I was leaving the depot when a colored
coachman Lowed before me.
" Beg pardon. sir—Mr. Smith?"
"Carriage is waiting. Step this way,
sir, if you please sir.''
I followed him, wondering if indeed my
uncle had sent up a carriage. It used to
be my aunt's pet hobby—a barouche, with
the old English coat-of-arms, which had,
indeed, belonged to us, but had been in
disguise since the impoverishment of
Raleigh Smith, of England. I wasn't
quite sure what they were, but believed it
was a sword and a helmet upon a piece of
parchment; but it proved to be a pen and
a sword against a palete, which was very
appropriate, as there had been scholars,
artists, and military men among our an
" All well?" I asked good naturedly.
" All well," answered Sambo with a
grin, shutting the door. Then he looked
k to say with another grin:
" Ladies very gay this mornin'."
If my stately aunt and cousin were gay,
it was certainly worth remarking; so I
laughed a little, and Sambo chuckled a
again, and jumped upon his seat.
We rattled through the streets, under
an arch, up an avenue. Things began to
"Where are we?" I asked, as Sambo
opened the carriage -door. " Do they live
" Yes, sir. Here's Mr. Dunbar, sir."
At the same moment an elderly gentle
man rushed out to the terrace to meet me.
"Why Smith, you are wonderfully late,"
he exclaimed, shaking hands with me.
" The cars ran off the track," I an
swered; and before I could say anything
else he hustled me into the house. •
"Everything ready. Hurry with your
toilet and come down. Pity you trimmed
your whiskers so close; it alters your ap
pearance very much. Robert help Mr.
Smith dress. Right in here, Smith.
Hurry now, the ladies are waiting."
I Mind myself in a luxurious dressing
room, and a mulatto was respectfully in
attendance. I sat down and looked at
"What is your name?"
"Robert, sir. Will you be so kind as to
hurry, sir. They are waiting on you."
I gave him the key to my portmanteau,
and resigned myself to my fate, whatso
ever it might be. But things were very

bad attempt at not smiling, "he's with

"How long have you lived here?"
"Don't know, sir. I've only been here
a day or two. There, sir; do you want
No; I was arrayed in my best apparel,
and looked well, though my whiskers, in
stead of being trimmed, were of early
growth, and never had been of any length.
I was met at the foot of the stairs by
the irrepressible Mr. Dunbar.
"It's all fixed," said he. LYou'll be
married at once. I had different arrange
ments made; was going to give you and
Rose a chance to get a little acquainted;
but that railroad delay spoiled that. The
Rev. Mr. Lawson is here. Come right

lie led me into a long reception room.
Some ladies shook hands with me. A
tiny, golden-haired creature was put at
my side. The clergyman married us.
Then there was a chatter of congratula
One woman with a horrible scarlet
head-dress put her hand on my arm and
drew me aside.
"What arrangements have you made
for your wedding trip?" asked she.
"None," I answered, truthfully.
"But you are going to New York for a
week or two?"
I thought New York as good a place to
go as any, if I was expected to go some
where, and answered yes.
"Aunt Sophy," said a trembling little
voice at our elbows, "what must I do
"Run up stairs and put on your travel

will assist you."
It was my 'wife. She never looked at
me, but ran away again.
Refreshments were circulating. I tried
very hard not to go crazy.
At last Dunbar came to me again.
"All ready, Smith. Carriage is wait

They hustled me out again, kissed Rose,
and shook hands with me, and we two,
alone, were driving pell-mell to the depot.
I bought tickets for New York, gave
Sambo live dollars, and we were off.
Well, we got into New York at mid
night. I took a carriage to the St. Nich

told my wife all about it.
She looked at me awhile with her great
blue eyes, and then said innocently:

After all, what difference did it make?
The disheveled young man with the bump

hour after our departure.

was nothing to be done.

I must tell you of the perils and trials I
had to undergo to become a Mason. On
the evening in question I presented my
self at the door of the Lodge room, No.
:Kuftit, sign of the skull and cross bones.
I was conducted to the ante-room, where
five or six melancholy chaps, in sashes
and embroidered napkins, were waiting to
receive me. On my entrance they all got
up and turned back somersaults, and
then resumed their seats. A big fat fellow,
who sat in the middle, and who seemed to
be the proprietor, then said:
"Sinner front the other world, ad
' I advanced.
"Will you give up anything to join
"Not if I know it," I said; "there's my
wife and fourteen line—"
Another party here told me to say
yes, as it was merely a matter of form.
So I said, "Yes, I will give up every

I said, " , Pon my word, I will not."
They then examined my teeth and felt
my tongue, then groaned again.
I said: "If you don't feel well, I have
got a little bottle here." The fat man
here took the bottle from me and told me
• to shut up. lie then in a voice of thunder
"Bring forth the goat!"
Another fellow then comes up with a
cloth to bind me.
"No you don't, Mr. Mason," I said;
"No tricks on travelers, it' you please; I
don't believe in playing blind-man's-buff
with a goat; I'll ride the devil, if you
like, but I don't go it blind. Stand back,
or I'll knock you into smithereens." They
were too much for me, however, so I had
to submit to being blindfolded. The goat
was then led in, and I could hear him
making an awful racket among the furni
ture. I began to feel that I was urgently
needed at home, but I was in for it, and
could not help myself.
Three or four fellows then seized me,
and with a demonaical laugh pitched me
on the animal's back, telling me at the
same time to look out for squalls. I have
been in many many scrapes, Mr, Editor;
I have been in election fights; I have
been pitched out of a four-story window;
but this little goat excursion was ahead
of them all. The confounded thing must
be all wings and horns. It bumped me
against chairs and the ceiling, but I held
on like a Trojan. I turned front somer
saults and rolled over. I thought it was
all over with me, and just as I was on the
point of giving up, the bandage fell from
my eyes, and the goat bounded through
the window with a yell like a wild Indian
giving up the ghost. I was in a Lodge of
Masons. They were dancing a war-dance
around a big skull, and playing leap-frog
and turning hand-springs, and the big fat
fellow of the ante-room wai standing on
his head in a coiner.
IT ought to be generally known among
Republicans that Judge Williams, of the
Supreme Court, is in no way responsible
for the retention of J. ROBl3 Snowden, of
naturalization papers notoriety, as Pro
thonotary of said Court. The Prothono
tary holds his office for three years, and
was re-appointed before Judge Williams
was called to the bench. Mr. Snowden
cannot be removed before the expiration
of his term except by impeachment.
THE latest, news from Cuba is favorable
to the speedy restoration of the authority
of the Government. It is stated that the
civil authorities have been re-established
in a number of districts heretofore dis
turbed by the insurgents. The Captain
General has given permission to the As
sociated Press to use the telegraph to state
facts, though at times they may be unfav
orable to the Government. He says a
true knowledge of what is passing in Cuba
will injure none but rebels.
—A Farmer who had engaged the ser
vices of a son of the Emerald Isle sent
him out one morning to harrow a piece of
ground. Ile had not worked long before
nearly all of the teeth came out of the
harrow. Presently the farmer went out
into the field to take notes of Pat's pro
gress, and asked him how he liked har
rowing. "Oht” replied Pat, "it goes a
bit smoother now since the pegs are out.,,
—Dating a recent debate in the Vic
toria Legislature, a rather good thing
was said by one of the members. An un
fortunate loyal liberal, whose education
had been sadly neglected, was reading out
a document to the House, and vainly en
deavoring to decipher an obscure letter ;
turning to his next friend, he anxiously
asked, "Is that a hem or a hen ?" "Oh,"
replied his friend, "call it hen, and move
that it lay on the table."
—An lowa orator, wishing to describe
his opponent as a soulless man, said : "I
have heard that some persons hold the
opinion that, just at the precise moment
after one human being dies, another is
born, and the soul enters and animates
the new-born babe. Now I have made
particular and extensive inquiries con
cerning iny opponent, than, and I find that,
for some hours before he drew breath,
nobody died. Fellow citizens, I will now
leave you to draw the inference."
