Tho Value ol n SevTspsiper.
Tbo following is tho exporioncoof a
mochanic, concerning tbo bonoGts of a
newppnper :
Ten years no I livoJ in a town in
Indiana. On returning homo ono
night, for I am a arponlcr by trado,
I siw a littlo girl leavo my door, and
I asked my wife who sho was. Sbs
said Mrs. Harris bad sont hor after
their newspaper, which my wifo bad
borrowed. A wo sat down to los.
my wifo said to mo, by my givcu
nuino :
' I with you would subscribo for
the newspaper, it is so much comfort
to mo when yon aro away from home."
"I would like to do so, saij I, b it
you know I owe a payment on tho
house and lot. It will bo all I can do
to meet it.''
Sbo roplicd :
'-If you will take this paper, I will
sow for the tailor to pay for it."
I subscribed for the paper, it came
in due timo to tho shop. Whilo res
ting ooo noon, and looking ovor it, I
saw an advertlsomont of the county
commissioners to lot a bridge that was
to bo built.
I put in a bid for the bridgo, and
tho job wss awarded to me, on which
I clcsred throo buadred dollars, which
enabled mo to psy for my house and
lot onsily, and for the uowspapqr.
If I bsd not subscribed for the nows
psper I would not bovo known anything
about tho contract, and could not ba vs
mot my payment on my bouse and
lot. A mechanic never looses any,
thing by taking a newspaper.
A Iaiw Suit With AlforaI.
A ourlous notion is now ponding in
one of our Now York Courts, in whioh
Anna Schoinort, a young woman of
sbout twenty yesrs of age, asks to
have bar marriage with Ferdinand
Scheincrt declared null and void, on
the ground that it was perfor mod
whilo the plaintiff was under fourteen
years of sge,nd egainst hor will.
Tbs plaintiff's father is a wealthy
down town merchant The defend,

ced to the family " as a needy musio
teacher. He gained thoir confidence,
frequently took the girl out for a walk.
On tbo 24th of April, 1805, Sobonsrt
took his pupil to the house of a friood
on Twrnty-sixth street, and there,
acoordiog to hor story, forced bee to
marry bitn. His friend offioistod as a
priest, and performed the servioea in
Latin. Acting npon .ber fears, he
prevented ber from telling her parents
Three or four days afterwards be
took Anna out as usual, and then
foreod her to aocompaQj him to Mon
treal, where she lived a miserable
life for eight months.. Her where

her father, and be took meant to

"What an egregious fool I have
been," sighed Hubert Hastings, as he
sat in bis luxuriously furnished cham
ber. "Here I am at the age of twen-
six a begger, after squandering in ri
otous living a snug fortuoo of fifty
thousand dollars. What shall I now do
to earn my daily breed f Must 1 set
np my ahingle man attornoy-at-Uw,
anl cmnmonce the practico of the
profession, for which my wo II mean

now for me to undertake thedrudgo

pronching seison at th While Sul
phur, where wealth an I boiuty most
do congregate, nol if I don't win tho
band of 8 Jin 0 southern hciton, my
name is not Hob Hastings."
Scarcely bad tho young spondthrift
srriveJ at this manly resolution when
his fricod, Qoorgs Martin, a rising
young lawyer of tho same city, entor
ed tho room. Ho had long snspect
d that his dUsoluto friend was on the
vcrgo of bankruptcy, and had advis
ed him repeatedly to apply himself to
ths practico of his profession Uaorge
koew that Jtoboi t Histins possessod
many sterling qualities combined with
raro talent which would ensure his
success at tbe bar, if ho woul 1 only
free himself from the hoard of sharp
ers and ovit counsellor wli) woro
thriving on his prodigality. Ho, con
sequently, expressed no surprise wbon
Hastings lo fur mod him that his raou-
eywasgono, aul procoode l lo ac
quaint him with tho moans by which
be meant to repair the daraago.
'And so, Dob, you moan to set out
as a professional fortuos-huntcr. Had
any ono else told mo that Hubert lias
would oogago in suck sn unworthy
pursuit I would hivo ropolled tho ac
cusation with scorn, snd denounced
it ns a foul slauder of my gifted frion 1
For sh.att)o, Bob, leave fortune-hunting
to tho, hosrtloss fool
wh3 ore not fiiUd for the higher
snd nobler dutios of lifo, turn ysur
time and talents to the practice of an
honorable profession, and my word for
it yon will never regret it.'
"No, George," replied his friend.
"My mind is made up. It would take
years for me to acquiro by the prac
tico of law an incomo that would ena
ble me live io the style to which I
have been accustomed, and I cannot
oonsout to move in an bumblorsphoro.
However I will only try my hand at
fortune-hunting this season, and if I
don't suooced I will put myself undor
your fYioudly guidanoe to do with me
as you will." ,
"Well, Rob, all tho oIJ Sootoh ad
age halhlit 'a willful man maun have
hie wsy,' I may perbsps drop in on
you at the Springs during the sum-
mer to see how you are getting 00 in
your new role."
Our hero lost no. time la carrying
out bis proposed . plan. He realiod
qnite a handsome sum from the aalo
of his sffeots, and with a splendid out
fit of wearing apparel and a pocket full
of small ohange made bis appsaranae
at tbo Springs about the opiolo of
tbe leasjn. - liy a lavish expenditure
be soon aoquired tho reputation of bo
ingiramonioly wealthy, whioli was
tho first step necessary to brlo' to s
successful issue the game he was
playing. : ... -
"I esn hardly sfford lo wast tbs
money I am daily squandering," tho't
he, "but then appearanooa must bs
kept up, and porhaps these small aurai
may be liko bread out upon the wa
ters to ba sssa After many dsys," '
Tbs reputation of. being wealthy
made our -friend Bob tbe object of in
cessant attaoks on the part of Msnoe
ovrsiog mmmss, snd many en art
less maiden directed tbe , lightning of
ker eyes at the yeung ssilllooaii-e.
Their angling, fcowevfr, as yala, Jbr
oor bero S)on learned that they, too,
were fortune bunting, aod bad their
charms been iocroased a hntidrod fold
be wonll still have preserved an in
vulnerable breast. Week afrer week
paseod away. Dob's rhangt was
growing "small by dedrees and dis
mally less," snd still no Isdy endowsd
with superior poouniarv attrscliens
bad visited lbs "Wkitb." At length
a rumor began began to be circulated
among the visitors thst a wealthy
ereole family from New Orleans had
sogaged rooms, and would bo stths
Springs in a fow days. Hob flew at
eoce to tbe pioprietor to koow if this
was true, and csing answered in ths
altlrmative, like a good night he at
onbe sot about preparing himself for
the campaign.
Tbe oxpoolsnt guests srrivsd in da
courso of time, aod no littlo commo
tion wss excited in the grand dining
saloon wbon tbs old Crcesus of tho
Crescent City entetcd with a fair
daughter on either arm, whilst his
good lady followed, supported by the
courtly proprietor. Our good friend
Hob, who was su tbe lookout was de
lighted to observe in tbe old gentle
man snd bis wife that air of easy
dignity so strikingly indicative of rank
and wealth, and was equrlly charmed
with tbo winning grace snd beauty of
the young ladies. With one of them,
indeed, who seemed to be the elder,
ho was alreaJy desperately in love,
and he at once siujjlod her out as the
objoct of his attack.
As soon as possible be sought sod

cent, tbo great hoiresa, would enter
the bull room leaning on tbo arm of
Robert Hastings.
It would be hsedloM to enter into
all tbe details of lbs courtship. ISo-
fore it was pssssd ths the hearts of
each were warmed ieto a deeper feel
ing than could possibly bo engender
ed by mere love of luore. True to
his premiio, (i sorgo Martin eamo to
the Springs, and being introduced to
the young lady by bis enraptured
friend, formed a most favorable opin
ion of her her merits. Just before the
closs of the seosoo, our hero propos
ed in dne form snd was accepted. At
his earnest solicitation, tho psronts of
tho ynunjj lady coosented for the eer
oniony to be perlormed at the Springs
and tho marriage was accordingly
solemnized in the prosooco of a few
mutual IrioO'U.
A fow days after the marriage,
Hob startled bis young wito not a lit
tle by informing her that the impres
sion in legard to his wealth was s
fatso one. A momentary shads of
disappointment fi tted over her coun
toouace, wbon sho replied, with s
merry laugh, "We sro even then ou
that soro, dear Robert. Tbo sanit
impressions, has prevailed in reference
to my father's possessions, and I aro
in a msssurs accountable for it, inas
much' ss I have bssn too weak to con
tradict it."
"What I you poor, taoP gasped
"Not white I' possess yqur love,"
was the geutlo reply.
"Dacling, ssid our bero, as he
pressed his gentle wife to bis hoart,
"if you sre coatsnt to sbaro tbe lot ol
a poor man we may yot bo sa bsppy
ss if we possessed unlimincd wealth.1'
And happy tbey have always been.
Robert Hastings returned to tbe city
witb his brido, oponod an office eon.
tiguous to thst of bis friood, aod is
already engaged in a lucrative and
extensive practise. In his efforts to
retrive a wasted fortune, and win an
honorable name among men, be is
ably jssoooded by bis lovely wifs.
Oeorgo Martin often laughs at bis
friend about his fortune huntor-hunt-ing
expedition ; but Dohjosn bear the
the jest as be won tho brigotsst jew

' Sagacity ( an Elephant,
Tho memory of Young, tbo trage
dian, wriitoo by his ton, coatainee
tbe subjoined s'.ory ;
In July, 1810, the largest elephant
ever aeon in England, wsa advertised
as "just arrived." As soon as Henry
Harris, manager ofCovent Garden
Theatre, heard cf it, he determined, if
possible, to obtain it J for it struck
him that if it wsre to be introduced io
the now psntonlme of Harlequin Pos
rasoata, which ha was about to pro
duos at a grsat coat, it would add
greatly to tbe attraction 1.
Under this Impression, and bsfors
the proprietor of Hxeter Change had
seen it, he purchasod it for ths sum ol
900 guineas. . sirs, Henry Johnson
was to ride it, nnd Mist Parker, the
ColamblM, wsa to play ap to It.
Tot"! happened to I () 0f ln
NO. 42.
at the box ofiloe adjoining the Cerent
Garden Theatre, when his ears wsre
assailed by a strange aul unusual up
roar within the walls.
On asking one nf the carpenters the
csus of it, bo wns told there wss
something wronj with the elephant,
but oould not exactly toll what.
I am not aware what mis-lit be the
assge nowaday 'ej but then, whenever
a new piece bsd been announced for
presentation on a given night, and
tbere wss but scarce time for its pre
psration, a rehearsal would tsks place
after tho night's regular porformsnce
wneover and tho audienco . having
been dismissed. Ono sucb there bad
besn before my fathor's curiosity bad
been arouaad.
As it had been arranged that Mrs.
Uonry Johnson, stated io a bowdah 00
tbe elephant's back, should pass over
a bridgo in the centre of a numerous
fcroup of folio wore, it was (bought ex
pedient thst this nnwclldly monster's
trsctability should be tostcd,
On stopping up to the bridgo, which
wns slight and tomporsry, the saga
cious brute throw back bis fore fee,
snd refuBod to stir. It is wsll known
as a fact in natural history thst the
elephant, becsuts of its unusual bulk,
will never trust its woiitbt npon say
objoct which is nnsqnat to its support.
Tho stage manager, soclog how ros-
olutely the animal resisttd every at
tempt rando to compol or indues it to
go over the bridgo in question, propos
ed that tbey should stay proceedings
till next day, wbon be might bs in a
belter mood. It was during tbo repe
tition of tbo experiment that father,
hoaiing the extraordinary sounds, de
termined to go an l seo if he oould as
certain thscauso of it.
Tbs first sight that mot bis eyos

the huge animal, with downcast eyes
snd flapping ears, meekly submitting
to blow after blow from a sliarp iron
gosd, which his driver was driviog
ferociously Into the flushy part of his
nock nt the root of his ear. Tho floor
on which he stood was covorod with a
pool of blood.
Ono of tbe proprietors impationt at
what Le regarded senseless obstinacy,
kept urging tho driver to still grester
extremities, when Chnrlns Young,
who was a groat lover of aniinala, ex
postulated with him; went up to the
poor patient sufferer, snd pitted snd
caressed blm ; and wben the driver
was about to woild his instrument
again, with even still more vigor, hs
caught him by the wrist as in a vies,
nnd stayed him from furthor vio
lence.' Whilo nn angry altercation was go-

Tbe beartg of tbo bardost present

ran out into the street, purchased a
few spptes at a stall, snd offered them
