AN UNWELCOME VISITOR.
The burglars had been very active 'and
bold in their operations, but as the ther
mometer marked above the nineties for
several days,• and I had little of valne in
my room, 1 preferred to risk that little
and leave my window open,although easy
access, rather than undergo partial suffo
cation. If an uninvited guest made his
appearance and I did awake, I could feign
sleep and let him take 'whatever he might
"This class of visitors," I reasoned with
myself, "do not generally commit person
al violence if they can accomplish theft
and make good their escape without it."
These were my reflections every night
as I undressed and threw myself on my
bed, leaving my castle open to the enemy,
I had been asleep one night an hour, when
I was awakened by the falling of a small
china ornament. Starting slightly and
opening my eyes, I saw the gas burning
and a tall broad shouldered man with his
back turned toward me, his face looking
over his shoulder to see whether the noise
had awakened me. My self possession did
not, however, forsake me. What follow
ed illustrates the value of presence of
Opposite the side of the bed, and about
eight feet from it was the door of my room,
two or three feet from which was the stairs
leading to the hall. The burglar must
have used a ladder in ascending the roof,
from which he entered the window. It
was some thirty feet from the ground, and
isolated. My plan was only to escape my
self, but to effect his capture. I knew the
policeman's heat, and he would pass in a
short time. , •
Sitting bolt upright, -then as I opened
my eyes and saWthe burglar looking very
unpleasantly at me, said rubbing I nv

'n•an instant, and in the dead stillness
of the night, I heard the tramp of the po
liceman. It was stillsome distance ott:
"You will find," I said, "some clothes
of mine in the press ; they will, hoWeVer,
be too small for you. Good night : the
keys are in the middle drawer."
' He turned to the drawer indicated and

I cleared the space behind my bed and
slammed the door and locked it upon him.
Oblivious of my dishabille, I sprung to
the steps. I had two flights to descend
and open the door before I could reach
the yard, but it was hardly possible fOr
him to descend the ladder more, quickly.
Bounding rather than running down stairs,
I flung back the bolt and dashed into the
yard. He was half Way down the ladder.
Shouting "Police !" lustily, I siezed the
ladder at the bottom, and using all my
power, brought it and the burglar to the
ground . with a crash. , The pistol he held
in his hand' fell from his grasp. I made
a dash for it and he springing to his feet
like, a cat, rushed at me and as I stooped,
he seized me by the back of the neck. I
turned the pistol upward and pulled the
aimed. It merely snapped—there were
no More charges in it. With a terrible
oath,the . ,buffled villian wrenched the wea
pon from my grasp and raised it aloft to
deal me what might have proved a ihtal
blow, when there was a rush behind him
and he was felled to the ground: The po
liceman had heard my shout, and was just
in time to rescue me.
The burglar was soon secured, and in
excitement I was about to relate the story
I have teld, when the policeman, with a
smile, suggested that I might "ketch cold
in them clothes."
I then remembered for the first time
since I had sprung from bed, that I was
shoeless and stoclongls and had nothing
on but my night shirt, and beat a hasty
retreat. With a long drawn breath I took
my fine gold repeater, which had such a
narrow escape, and was not at the watch
makers after all, from under my pillow,
looked at the hour, turned in, and after a
little while fell asleep.
It is almost needless to add that the a
bove story, narrated afterward to a jury,
had the effect of giving the visitor lodging
in a public institution, and secured me a

THE YANKEE BOY IN RUSSIA
One day a lad, apparently about nine
teen, presented himself before our ambas
sador at St. Petersburg. He was a pure
specimen of the genus. Yankee; with
sleeves too short for his bony arms, trow
sers half way up to his knees, and hands
playing with coppers and ten-penny nails .
in his pocket. He introduced himself by
saying, "I've just came out here to trade,
with a few Yankee notions and I want to
get sight of the Emperor.
"Why do you wish to see him ?"
"I'Ve brought him a present all the way
from s.meriky. I respect him considera
ble, and I want to get at him, to give it
to him with my own hands."
Mr. Dallas smiled as he answered :
"It is such a common thing, my lad,
to make crowned heads a present, expect
ing something handsome in return, that
I'm afraid the Emperor will consider, this
only a Yankee trick. What have you
"An acorn ! Wlmt under the sun in
duced you to bring the Emperor of Rus
siaan acorn ?"
``Why, just before I sailed, mother and
I went on to Washington to see about a
pension ; and when we was there, Iro

,u listenino• to? asked the
thought We'd just step over to Mount Ver
non. I picked up this acorn there, and I
thought to myself I'd bring it to the Em
peror. Thinks, says I, he must, have
heard a considerable deal about our Gen
eral Washington, and I expect he must
admire our institutions. So now you see
I've brought it and I want to get at him."
"My lid, it's not a easy matter for a
stranger toapproach an Emperor, and I
am afraid-lie will take no notice of your
present. You had better keep it."
"I tell ou_ wand to have a talk with
him. I expect Can tell him a thing or
two about Ameriky. I guess he'd like
mighty well to hear about our railroads,
and our free schools, and. what a big swell
our steamers cut : and when he hears ho*

Vice Chancellor and state your wishes ;
he may possibly assist you."
"Well,-that's-all-1 - want of you. -

In two or three days he again appeared,
and - said, "Well, I've seen the Emperor,
and had a talk with him. He's a real
gentleman,.l. can tell you. When I give
him the acorn,he said he would set a great
store by It , that there was no character
in ancient or modern history he admired
as much as he did our Washington. Hd
said he'd plant it in his palace garden
with his own hand ; and he did do it, for
I see him with my own eyes ; He wanted
to ask me so much about our schools and
.railroads, and one thing or another, that
he invited me to come again and see his
daughters ; for he said his wife could speak
better English than he could. So I went
again yesterday ; and she's a fine, know

"What did the Empress say to you ?"
"Oh, she asked a might of questions.—
Don't you think, she thought we had no
servants in Ameriky ! I• told her poor
folks did their own work, but rich folks
had plenty of servants."
"But then you don't call'em servants,"
said she, "you call'em help."
"I guess ma'am you've been reading
Mrs. Trollope," says I, "We had that e'er
book aboard our ship."
The Emperor clapped his hands and
laughed as if he'd kill himself. "You're
right," said he, "you are right; we sent
for an English copy, and she's been read
ing it this very morning !"
"Then. I. told him all I knew about our
country, and he was mightilypleased.—
He wanted to know how long I expected
to stay in these parts. I told him Id'e
sold all the notions I brought with me,
and I guessed Mould go hack in the
same ship: I bid 'emgood-bye, all around
and went about my business. Ain't I
had a glorious time? I expect you did
not calculate to see me run such a rig ?"
"No indeed I did not my lad. You
may well consider yourself lucky; for it's
a very uncommon thing for crowned
heads to treat a stranger with so much
A few days after, he called again and
said: - e •
I guess I shall stay a spell longer; I
am treated so well. 'Tether day a grand
officer came twmy room and told me the
Emporer had sent him •to show 'me all
the curiosities; and I dressed myself, and
he took me with him in a mighty tine
carriage, with four horses; and I have
been to the theatre and museum; and I
expect I have seen about all there is to
be seen in St. Petersburg. What do you
think of that, Mr. Dallas?"
It seems so increditable that a poor,
ungainly Yankee lad should b o thus
loaded with attentions, that the ambassa
dor scarcely knew what to think or to
In a short time his strange visitor re
appeared. "Well," said he, "I made
up my mind to go home, so I went to
thank the Emperor, and bid him good
bye. I thought I couldn't do no
he'd been so civil. Says he, is there any
thing else you'd like to see before you go
back to America?" I told him I should
like to get a peep at Moscow, for I'd
heard considerable about the're setting
fire to the Kremlin, and I'd read a deal
about General Bonapart; But it would
cost a sight o' money to go there, and I
wanted to carry my earnings to my moth
er. So I bid him good-bye and came off.
Now what do you guess he did next morn
ing? I vow he sent the same man, in
regimentals to carry me to Moscow in one
of his own carriages, and bring me back
again when I've seen aILA wart to see !---
And we're gOink to-morrow morning, Mr.
Dallas. What do you' think of that.
And sure-enough the.next evening the
Yankee. boy , passed the Ambassador's
house in a splendid coach and four, wa
ving his handkerchief and shouting,
"Good-bye ! Good-bye 1"
Mr Dallas afterwards•learned from the
Emperor that all the particulars related
by this adventurous youth were strictly
true. He again heard from him at Mos
cow; waited upon by the public officers,
and treated with as much attention as is
usually bestowed on Ambassadors.—
Now, who but a yankee could ha v e
done all that ? •
A southern editor is bitterly opposed to
the education of women as surgeons. Sup

from kissing him ?

A Nice Little Story•.

Notwithstany her extreme age and \ fee

Her detention by sickncis and moderate

of the attending stranger. He paid her

One marked difference between the,an

the need of the former for a home. Most

the more tenacious is the clinging to home
and the more profuse are the means
brought to bear to perfect its arrange..
If this need of home be so inherent hi
our natures, and so important to our wel
fare, it becomes the duty of all to see :to
it that they contribute their share to, its
establishment and perpetuation: Thia
obligation, in some .of its many forms,
rests upon every one. The • father. who
maintains the lousehold, the mother )vho
