Ueueon Uaucroft, though a vcry ffoKl niau ia the main, aiid looked up to with respect hy all the iuhabitauts of the little villajft? of Centreville, was rumored to have, iu Yankee par lance, "a pretty shaq eye to the main chance" a ieculiarity from which even fleacoim are not always exempt In worldly matters he was decid edly well to do, havinr inherited a j fine farnt from his father, which was MrrowiuMHiy more valuable. It might he mppuscd that under these ; circumstances, uie deacon, w no was fully able to do so, would have found a help-mate to share his house and name. Uut the Deacon was wary. Matrimony was to him in some meas ure a matter-of monev, and it was - w .t"i, v. 'in j , wuu ii, t an i his firm resolve not to marry unless he couid thereby enhance his worldly prosjaerity. Unhappily, the little town of Centreville and the towns in j the immediate vicinity contained few who were qualified iu this important particular and of those there were probably none with whom the Dea con's suit would have prosjiered. So it happened that vear after vear i passed away, until Deacon .Bancroft i was in the prime of life fortv-five, or j thereabouts and still unmarried, and in all human probability likely to re main so. But in all human calcula tions of this kind, they reckon ill who leave witlows out. Deacon Bancroft's nearest neighbor was a widow. The Widow Wells who had passed through one matrimonial cxicriciicc was some three or four years young er than Deacon Bancroft She was still quite a buxom, comely woman, as widows arc apt to be. Unfortu- nately the late Mr. Wells had not been able to leave her sufllcicnt to make her indejx'iidcnt of the world. All that she possessed was the small old-fashioned house iu which she lived, and a small amount of money, which was insufficient to support her and a little son of seven, likewise to be enumerated in the schedule of her property, though hardly to 1x3 classed as "productive" of anything but mis chief. The widow was therefore obliged to take three or four Ixiardcrs to eke out her scanty income, which of course imposed upon her considerable labor and anxiety. It is surprisiug that under these circumstances she should now have bethought herself of a second mar riage, as a method of bettering her condition? Or again, need we es teem it a special wonder if, in her re flections uKin this point, she should have cast her eyes upon her next neighbor, Deacon Bancroft? The deacon, as we have said, was in flourishing circumstances. He would Ix? able to maintain a wife in great comfort; Ix-ing one of the chief per sonages in the village, could accord her a prominent social iKisition. ' He was not especially handsome, or cal culated to make a profound impres sion upon the female heart this was true but he had a good disixosition, . . tilld - hea rtcd, ailll Would 110 doubt . r L i j i aae a til poou mil i m a, uusouiiti. idows, are, 1 take it, (if anv shall do me the honor and read this story, I trust they will forgive the remark,) less disposed to weigh sentiment in a s'eoiitl alliance than a first, and so in i . - i ilU.tj ... r r.:,,. the tt IdoW S point Ot VICU, the eoll wax a match. dea- Some sagacious xrson, however, has observed that it takes two to make a match, a fact to be seriously considered ; for in the present case it was exceedingly doubtful whether tlie worthy deacon, even if he had known the favorable opinion of the next neighbor, would have been in- lined to propose changing her name! to Bancroft, unless, indeed, a suitable motive was brought to Iscar upon him. Here was a chance for some finess ing, wherein widows are said, as a general thing to be expert. One evening after a day of very fatiguing labor, the Widow. Wells sat at the lire in the cosy sitting-room with her small feet resting upon the fender. "If I am ever so situated as not to have to work so hard," she murmur ed, "I shall Ix; happy. It's a hard life,' keeping boarders. If I was as well off as Deacon Bancroft " Still tlie widow kept up her think ing, and by-and-by her face brighten ed up. She had an idea which she resoltfed to put into execution at the earliest possible moment What it was, the reader will discover in the sequel. "Henry," said she to her son, the next morning, "I want you to stop at Bancroft's, as you go to school, and ask him if he will call aud aee me in the course of the morning or after noon, just as he finds it most conven ient" Deacon Bancroft was a little sur prised at the summons, However, Somerset . . . I!'.') .- i : . : '..'.:! - I i. ....... , . '' -, I .,,!. , . attout eleven o'clock he called in. The widow had pot on the dinner, and Lad time to nit down. She ap peared embarrassed. ' "Harry told me you would like to see me," he .commenced. 1 : ' Yes," Deacon Bancroft, I do; but I'm Yery much afraid you will think rtranjre of it at least of what I have to say to you. ' ; The deacon very politely-promised not to ' lie surprised, thonirh at the same timw hi curiosity was visibly excited." ' ! - ' 'Suppose," said the widow, cast ing down Iter eyrs "mind I am only supposing a ease suppose a person should find a pot of gtdd pieces in their cellar," would, the law have a right to touch it, or would it In-long to themll', V, ,.t The deacon pricked up his ears. "A pot of gold pieces, widow ! Why, unquestionably, the law would have nothing to do with it" ,"And the one who had formerly owned the house could'nt come for ward and claim it, could he, deacon?" inquired the widow, further, with ajv parent anxiety. "No, madam, unquestionably not. When the house was disjwsed of, everything went with it, as a matter of course. , ."I am glad to hear it, deacon. You won't think strange of the question, but it happened to occur to my miud, and I thought I would like to have it satisfied." "Certainly, widow, certainly," said the deacon, abstractedly. ..." "And, deacon, as you are here, I hope yc-nll stop to dinner with ua. It will bw ready punctually at twelve." ' "Well, no," said the deacon, rising, lint obleeged to to ye, but they'll In; e.eciing me at home." "Was it possible," thought he, "that the widow could really have found a iot of 'gold in her cellar? She did not say so, to lie sure, but why should she have shown so much j concern to know as to the proprietor shin of treasure thus found, if she , had not happcued ujmhi some IO be sure, so far as knowledge extended there was no one who would be in the least, likely to likely to lay up such an amount of gold; but then ,1... 1 ,. ......

The widow's earnest desire to have him think it was only euriositv. likewise irave additional probability to the supposition. "I will wait and watch," thought the deacon. "At any rate, deacon," said the widow, taking steaming mince-pie out of the oven, "you won't object to tak- ing a piece of my minec-pie, you must know I rather pride mvself on mv mince pies." The warm pie sent forth such an odor that the deacon was sorely tempted, and after saying, "Well, really," with the intention of refusing he finished by saying, "On the whole, I think I will, an. they look so very nice." The widow was really agoodctxik, and the deacon ate with much gusto tbo irenerous slice which the widow cut for him, and after a little more chattine- upon some unimportant sub- "... . jects, withdrew iu some mental per- plcxity. It so hapH?ned that Deacon Ban croft was one of the directors in a Savings Institution, situated in the next town, and accordingly used to ride over there once or twice a month to attend meetings of the lxjard. On the next occasion of this kind, the Widow Wells sent over to know if he could carry her over with him, as she had a little business to attend to there. The request was readily accorded. Arrived in the village, Mrs. Wells re quested to be set down at the bank. "Ha! ha!" thought the deacon, "that means something." He said nothing, however, but de termined to come back and find out, as he readily could from the cashier, what business she had with the bank. The widow tripled lightly into the office, pretending to look very non chalant "Can you give mc small bills for a five dollar gold piece ? " she inquired. "With pleasure," was the reply. "By tlie way," said she, "the bank is in quite a flourishing condition, is it not?" "N'one in the State on better foot ing," was the prompt response. "You receive deposits, do 30U?" "Yes, madam, we are receiving them every day." , "Do you receive as high as as five thousand dollars?" "N'o," said the cashier, with some surprise ; "or rather we do not allow interest on so large a sum. One thousand dollars is our limit. Did you know of any one who " "It is of no consequence," said the widow, hurriedly ; "I only asked out of curiosity. By the way, did you say how much interest you allowed on such deposits as came within vour limit?" . "Five per cent, uia'ani." "Thank you ; I only asked for curi- .osity. What a beautiful morning it is. Aud the widow tripped lightly out. Shortly afterwards the deacon en tered. "How's business, Mr. Cashier?" he enquired. "About as usual." "Have had you anv new deposits lately?" "None of any magnitude." "I brought over a lady, this morn ing, who seemed to have business with you." "The Widow Wells?" "Yes." "Do you know," asked the cashier, "whether sl had any money left her lately?" JXone that I know of," replied the deacon, pricking up his ears, "Why, did she deposit any,?" "No, but she inquired wliether wc receive deposits as high us five thou sand dollars." "Indeed ! " ejaculated the deacon. -'Was that what she caine for ? " "Xo; she exchanged a gold piece for small bills." "Hal" pondered the deacon, re flectively. "Did she give any reason for her inquiries 7 KSTA11LISIIED, SOMERSET, PA., WEDNESDAY, "Xs; she said she only asked from curiosity." ' The deacon lefttlie bunk in deep thought. He cuuic to the conclusion that this "curiosity" veiled a deeper motive. . He no longer entertained a doubt that the, widow had actually found a pot of gold in the cellar, ami ap-M-aranccs to uidicnte that its prob able value was at least five thotisantl dollars. The gold piece which she had exchanged at the bank .appeared to confirm thiu story. ; . "I rather think,"" said the deacon, complacently, "7 can see into a mill stone about as far ns most people," a statement, the literal truth of which Ldeny any one to' question, though ns to the prime fact of people's being able to see into a millstone at all,, doubts have now and then intruded themselves on dit mind.' " . ' 1 Xext Sunday the Widow Wells ap peared at church in a new stylish bon net, , which led to such remarks as these ., ' , p . . .ft ' "How much vanity some people have, to be sure." "How ; a woman that has kept boarders for a living can aflord to dash out with such Ixuincts is more than I can tell. I 'should think she was old enough to know better." , 1 his last remark was made by a young lady just six months younger than the widow, whose attempts to catch a husband hitherto proved ut terly unavailing.." "I suppose she Is trying to catch a second husband with her finery.'- be fore I Would condescend - to-such means I'd I'd drown myself. ' In this amiable speech the young ladv unwittinriv hit upon the rrue motive. The widow was intent upon catchin-r Deacon 'Bancroft, and she indulircd in a costlv lionnet not be - cause she supposed he would lie caught by such finery, but because it 1 year 1871.

Mondav afternoon Deacon Ban croft found an errand that called him to the widows. It chanced to Ix: aWut tea-time. Ho was importuned ; to stay to tea. and somewhat to his own surprise, actually did. Tlie politic widow, who knew the deacon's weak poiut, brought out one of her best mince-Ulcs. a piece of whicli, her guest jiartook with zest.

Deacon Bancroft assented, and he meant what he said. The fact is, the deacon Wgan to think the widow was a very charming woman. She was comely, and then she was such an ex cellent cook! Besides, he had no doubt in his diiind that she was worth a considerable amount of money. What objection would there lx to her becoming Mrs. Bancroft ?

Some weeks after the ciTeiuony, the deacon ventured to inouire about the pot of gold which she had found in ner cellar. "Pot of gold ! " she exclaimed in surprise, "I know of none." "But," said the deacon, disconcert ed, you know you asked me whether vou could claim it ' "O, lor I deacon, I only asked for i curiosity. "Ana was mat me reason you made inquiries at the bank ? " "Certainly. What else could it be. " The deacon went to the barn, and for about half an hour sat iu silent meditation. At the end of that time he ejaculated as a closing considera tion: "After all, she makes good mince-pies." . - It gives ino pleasure to state that the union lx-tween the deacon and the witlow proved a very happy one, although to the end of his life, he could never tpiite make up his mind about "Thc Pot of Gold."

This teaching was very simple, and in manv respects resembled that of the Quakers. One great -doctrine was, that war was unlawful and military service sinful.

Their I'utch neat ness and Dutch industry Boon-made these desolate and swampy regions to flourish like a garden. In 1730 and 1872, theMennonites were threat ened with expatriation, on account of their refusal to serve in the army; but the storm passed by, ami in 1740 iviiig Frederick II. gave them new orivileffes, which resulted in a new immigration from Holland Still many arbitrary measures were taKen from time to time, and in 17S!t they wore forbidden to purchase landed property.

Though the Mennonites were origin ally agriculturists, thev have entleav- orcd to supply their own wants in manufactured articles, and, in 1854, they had in activity 3j0 mills and factories, including cloth-mills, water and grist-mills, dyeing and printing works, breweries, distilleries, silk piniicrics. Prick: ami tile works, pot- tcrics, ic, and among their villages there were men exercising nearlv every known trade. That the Mennonites are thrifty, in dustrious, and economical, their pros perity is sufficient proof. They are, beside this, very clean, and orderly (a lady could go into even' peasant's stable), and quiet, contented, honest, moral, and deeply religious. There is no drunkenness or gambling among them. Crime is exceedingly rare. The latest statistics I can find arc da ted 1S41, and those show that for 37 years there were only C8 crimes in thc Mennonite colonies on the Mo lotchna, including about 12,000 Tro pic.

Nowhere else in Europe can such immigrants be found. These 40,000 Mennonites." would be worth 100,000 Gonnans from the Black Mountains or Wurtemlx?rg, because thoir intelligence, morality and thrift stand so much higher.

Though the colony is prosperous auu J some of the , members rich, yet there are there, as everywhere, eise. some poor who cither have no land, being mere day-laborers,, or have so little property that the forced sale, which they would have to make on quitting their homes would leave them almost destitute.

TIIEIITY OF MEXICO. Hit t'bmrltuble Imatltutiwam, .Market. and Frulta er the 4 llatiale. Mr. William Cullen Bryant, the veteran, editor of the New York E ceil ing Pott, is publishing in his pa per htters within during his recent visit to Mexico, which, are exceeding ly interesting. From the fifth of the series we copy the following portion relating some of the charitable aud other institutions of the City of Mex ico. The letter is dated March 11, 1872: One of the most interesting things to be seen in Mexico is the school of Tttcpau de Santiago, a charitable in stitution, founded and supported by a Mexican lady, the Seuora Baa, wife of an opulent gentleman who has for merly filled the ixst of Governor of the province of Mexico. ve caueu first at the house of Governor Baz, as he is called, one of the finest mansions in Mexico, fitted un with great taste and attention to comfort His lady, a native Mexican of a somewhat slight ULO NO. 1. but elegant Gjrure and quiet manners, i camo out ana accompttiiicu us hi our visit to the school. Just in the.-kirth ; of the cit v, or perhaps a little outsidf of them, stands a soaeion buildinsr, once the Convent or leepau de San tiago, and this has been taken by Senora Uaz for the charitable purpose to which she devotes a large income and gives her daily care. In this school five hundred boys, picked up in the city, parentless, or neglected by their parents, utterly friendless, ami if not taken from the streets certain to Ix long to that miserable class calcd the lepero, and to grow up in ignor ance and habits of indolence and vice, are clothed, fed, educated, taught a variety of trades and employments, anl fitted to become useful members of society. We pussed from room to room, in some of which the lads were studying their lessons, and in others attending to the occupation in which they were to be trained. Here were the future shoemakers of Mexico, busy over their lasts and lapstones ; there the tailors, learning to sew and cut out and fit garments, and in an other place the printers busy at their tyj-es. "The proceedings and ordi nances of the Common Counci! are printed here,' said !enor Laz, and we 1 were shown several samples neatlv j executed. In one room were the voting cabinetmakers smoothing and the saw and plane ; in a third several turning-lathes were humming. The lxiys wero all neatly and comfortably clad in the garments made by their own tailors. We passed through the prodigiously long halls which serve as soldiers, and came last to the kitchen, where ample preparations were mak ing for their meals. In this school the course of educa- tion includes grammar, drawing and music. The benevolent founder of the school visits itevery day, observes ! the progress of i'ut- pupils, sees . that ! their comfort is not neglected, and : . i i i . :i r t .1 a. ! inai ner p.at. . ia.iu.uu carr.eu wut. ; Such an inroad as her ' institution is aiaamx .. y !

Other fruits follow in their order until the year completes its circle. On our return to our hotel we saw a crowd of people about an open door. and looking in we saw the drawing of a lottery, iu which the bystander- seemed to be much interested. A hollow cylinder, full of bits of pajx-r indicating the blanks and prizes, was made to revolve a few times ; a little boy then thrust in an awl through an opening among these bits of paper, and on its point drew out either a blank or a prize, and this determined the fate of the ticket of w hich the number was read just before thn cyl inder was made to revolve.

It was a munificent endowment, founded by the opulent I.iseuvans while the country was un der the rule of Spain. A million of dollars was expended iu erecting a building of vast dimensions a per fect palace, enclosing several quad rangles, and half a million dollars set aside for the support of thc inmates. It was origiually called tbe Colegio de lass Biscay ias ; but the Basques in Mexico might, I suppose, now be I counted on tho fingers of onti's hand, and the Mexican government has ta ken possession of the institution and nturiMl It th National School for Girls, nere senventy-eight orphan girls of oil the different ra'.is in Mox co arc sheltered, reared, educated and provided with a home till they mrry.

The matron who showed us the.-e room, and who accompanied us t the great kitchen, where the dinner of the inmates, was simmering, smoked, as i-he went, a vi'jarillo, a pinch or two of fine tobacco, rolled up in .ip ; so as to form a little cylinder. It is customary among the elderly Mexi can women and those of middle ai. to smoke tobacco in this form, but when I sioke of this to a .Mexican lady she answered, "The practice is going out of vogue ; the young wo men now do not smoke." But I have not yet done with the school. All these ample accommodation-1, are not alone for the orphans who are gratuitously provided for. A hundred and forty girls of Mexican families are received hre as boarders and pupils on payment of ten dollars monthly. Besides these, there is kept in the building a dav school for little girls of the poorer class, who amount to an indefinite number, ami tor whom nothing is paid. From the National School for Gir! I went to the Foundling Hospital, which is here ealletl the Cuna or Cradle. Here I found myself in a swarm of three hundred of these par entless creatures, from grown-up boys and girls down to the bale of yester day.

Later infor mation from the scene of the tornado ! which visited Ojtincy and De Graff, Logan county, Ohio, on Saturday evening, shows that it was more ter rible aud destructive than first reports indicated. A sultry day was follow ed by the appearance of a cloud in the west, alxmt five o'clock in the evening, which gathered blackness and size with fearful rapidity. A heavy wind set, in, and at half-pa.-t five o'clock the whirlwind struck the earth five miles from Quincy, moving south-easterly. The destroyer was hardly more than five minutes reach ing Quincy, through which it passed, making a clean sweep of houses, trees and fences along its path, which for tunately was comparatively narrow. In this village fifty or sixty dwellings and stores, and two churches, and as many more shops, stables and out buildings were unroofed, rocked upon their foundations or were demolished. Thc a;r literaT fiHed with fivin boards, furniture, laths and plaster. A parlor stove was caught up by the wind and hurled through the air, fall ing upon a woman, who was so crush ed that she has since died. The Bap tist and Methodist Episcopal churches were completely destroyed. The tornado on its way to De Graff struck Bogg's flouring mill, five stories high, and containing three thousand bushels of grain, moving the building nine inches upon its foundation, car rying away the roof and part of the fifth story. It plowed its way through De Graff, scattering destruction ia its path, but hurting few persons anil damaging a less number of buildings. After leaving De Graff it passed sev eral settlements, missing houses, ami finally rose from the earth and was seen for miles carrying in its funnel shaped form timber, rails anil debris which it had gathered in its destruc tive march. The papers of this morning give the names of thirty-nine persons injured in Quincy and eleven in De Graff. The list does not com prise all the injured in the former vil lage. Mrs. Roll, reported killed in De Graff, is yet living, though her two children were killed. Mrs. Glick. of Quincy, has since died from her wounds. tHir.two.
