Breakfast had just
_been 'cleared away
and the little sitting-room WAS very bright
and cheerful in the yellow flood of the
April sunshine. There were puts of purple
blossomed violets in the window seat, and
a blue-ribboned guitar lying on the sofa,
sad books piled on the table, and 'close by
the fire Mrs. Haven had seated herself at
her desk to write some letters.

Mary Haven had a character that you

the door opened very softly, and a round
hill-mooned face appeared.
"Mrs. Haven, mem. if you please."
"Yes," said Mary Haven, descrying at
once by the infallible barometer of a wo
maesear the rising thunder storm in the
domestic atmosphere below. "What is' it,

"It's not that von are not a kind mis

"N—o," returned honest Henry, dis

All thin g B considered, it was not strange
that Mr. Haven was in no amiable humor
by the time he reached Snipp tt, Scissors.'

"Sir !" demanded the surprised tailor,
"you are aware that our rule i 3, no alter

"Very well, your bill isn't settled, and
it won't be either, in a hurry!"
"Mrs. Haven paid it, sir this morning,"
said the surprised tailor, referring to his
books. •
Mrs. Haven ! How the uncalled-for-in
terference of "Mrs. Haven" stared him in
the face at every step. Of course there
were no remonstrance to be made, how.
ever, and the discomfitted husband left
the establishment.
"I'll stop in at Jordan's any way," he
thought. "and secure that lot; it will be a
capital spec n lat ion."
Mr. Jordan was standing whistling in
front of his gate with both hands in his
pockets. He looked up as Henry Haven
"Well, old. fellow ?"
"Suppose we clear np this business
about that Central Park lot," said Haven
carelessly, "don't think I can do any bet
"Your decision comes late, said Jordan
shrugging his shoulders. "I signed over
to Smythe & Parker half an hour ago."
"And by whose authority ?"
,M r. Haven's brow was darkening.
"Mrs. ,ilaven's. She was here a little
while ago, and tlld me you would not
take the half-lot."
"Mr. Haven bit his lips! this was really
growing a little provoking. He left the
real estate office a little abruptly, and went ,
directly to his own place.
But had he not been tolerably certain of
his own number, he would Tilt have rec

wife, but the wrinkles vanished out of his
forehead as the smiling sunshine of Mary's
. -
"My dear," said he. "It is rather late
to transact any business to-day. Shall we
walk house together ?"
And Mr. Haven must have left his "in
terference" principles at the office, for
Mary never saw any more of them. Nei
ther husband nor wife ever alluded to the
the subject again, but Mr. Haven was
cured of his one bad habit. Mary's sin

• The old-prison stood on the spot where
now the massive granite court house is
placed. From it. the street was very ear
'ly named Prison lane, changed to Queen
street in 1708, and to Court in 1784.
..What the old prticiti was like is left to
conjecture, but we will let an old master
of the imaginative art describe it: "The
rust on the ponderous iron work of its
oaken door looked more antique than
anything else in the New liTorld.—
Like all that pertains to crime, it 'seems
never to have know a youthful era." The
fancy of Hawthorn in locating a bloom
ing rose bush on the grass plot beside the
prison door is striking. Here were con
fined the victims of the terrible witch
craft delusion.

"Who is het one that for lack of land
Shall fight upon the water.
To is heavy door stood between tne no
toridus pirate, William Kidd, and liberty.
He arrived in Boston in June, 1699, with
his sloop, and was examined before the
Earl of Bellemont and the council of the
province. On the 6th of June Kidd:was
seized and committed to prigon.lwith sev
eral of his crew, and his vessel taken pos
session of. When arrested,Kidd attempt
ed to draw his sword' and defend himself.
By order of the King he was sent to'Eng
land in a frigate, and arrived in London
April 11, 1100. lie• was examined be
fore the Admiralty, an 3 afteriver•as be
fore the House of Lords, where great ef
forts were made to implicate the Earl of
Bellemont and otherof the lords in Kidd's
The pimte,after a long confinement,was
finally hung at Executive Dock. He died
hard. The rope broke the first time he
was tied op, end he fell to the ground; a
second trial proved more successful.
It has been claimed that Kidd was not
a pirate. He was an officer in the Brit
ish Navy prior to 1691, married in this
country and ha commanded a_merchant
ship owned by Robert Livingstone, a
wealthy New York merchant. When in
1695, the coast of New nigland was in
fested with pirates, Livingstone propos
ed to the Earl of Bellemont, to employ
Kidd to go in pursuit of them, and offer
ejto share the expenses of fitting out a
inset. Application was made to the
Home. Government for a thirty-gun ship
and commission for Kidd for this pur
pose, but the Government being then un
able to furnish a vessel, the Earl of Belle
moat, Lords Halifax, Somers, Romney,
Oxford and others, contributed, with Liv
ingstone, to fit Kidd out in the Adven
, tare Galley. He received a , commission
from the Court of Admiralty ip,Decem
ber7l69s,antborized him to cruise against'
the King's enemies.
Once at sea, Kid& turned pirate, re
versing;the adage, "Set a rogue to catch
a rogue," and made several captures: but
his exploits preceded him, and on return
to _New trigland he , was arrested. ,The
search after the pirate's hidden treasures
has continued ever since. A pot of dol
lars was dug up in 1790 on Long Island,
supposed, to havebeen Kidd's. The fate
of the freebooter has often been lamented
in the melancholy ditty—
"My name was Captain Kid, as I sailed," ere.
Uncontrollable Fits of Loving
In Louisville, Ky., a short time since, a
young man laid siege to the 'heart of a i •
young lady, a resident of that city, who '
ultimately surrendered the fortress unto,
his keeping. A day was appointed for
the nuptials, friends were invited, gOod
things to eat and drink were provided,
and all the concomitants fur well-regulat
ed weddings were prepared. 'rho day
came. the guests came, but the bridegroOm
—"the young man from the country"—
came not.
The mother of the bride that was to be
went and interviewed the son-in-laW that
shoUldhave been. She told him 'of her
daughter—how, like Amy, in "Locksitsy.
Hall," her "cheek was pale and thinner
than 'should be for one so yOriug," and
how she was pining away from disappoint-,
inept and grief. The young man observ
ed, deprecatingly, that the young lady'
had never been very fat, but the would-be
mother-in-law parried this thrust and rep
resented to him the impropriety of his
conduct in such moveing termi. that he
felt bound to apologize. Ile accordingly
told the old lady that he was sorry to have .
grieved and disappointed her daughter
and herself, but that lie was, the subject,
of uncontrollable fits of loving, and when
one of these came upon him he could not
keep from courting somebody. Thi'f, he
said, was a disease, and that he was in no
sense responsible for anvthnig, he did
while this temporary madness• was upon
him. It ho had, under the . power of this
malady, made love to her dauiliWr;
was sorry fur if, lint - he could not help it.
If she doubted his word he said, he could
! bring hundreds of physician§ toi.prete
that - finch a disease existed, and hundreds
of his aconaintenauces to prove that' lie
I hail it. The lady' from Louisville Went
home a sadder if not wiser woman. Be
fore she left she expressed gl'eat sYtripa
thrfor the young fmui.obSoriiing that "it
was such a pity he nould not be Mimi."
