“Marrying in haste and repenting at leisure"
was realized a day or two since by an over•sus
ceptible young man, who, for some time past,
has occupied a position as salesman in a fash
ionable dry goods establishment in this city.
On Thursday a showy-looking brunettn,
dressed in the extreme of fashion, called for
the first time at the store, and while the young
man waited upon her a conversation sprung up,
which speedily warmed into ee easy a familiar
ity that an invitation was extended by the fair
one to him to call upon her at the house where
she was stopping, previous to her returning
South. The young man, who was half seas
over in love at first sight, called the next day,
and then learned that the lady was the daugh
ter of a rich planter in Louisiana; that she had
been upon a visit to friends in Columbus, and
was remaining here for a few days for the pur
pose of seeing the city, as well as awaiting the
arrival of a boat, with the captain of which
she was acquainted, and whose protection it was
her wish to avail herself of until her arrival
home. An invitation from the young man to
visit Pike's Opera house that evening, and Bee
the Zouave drill, was accepted, and at the
appointed time a carriage was at the ladies'
entrance of the hotel, into which the lady wrs
handed by her devoted cavalier, who in the
course of the evening fell a helpless captive
beneath the bright glances from those dark
eyes which looked into his own.
Upon the following morning he turned his
back upon the store, and soon found himself
under the magnetic influence of the beautiful
Creole, when, unable to control his feelings, he
followed Lord Chesterfield's advice, and Tell-

ledged a reciprocal passion, with the result that
a marriage was agreed upon, and before that
night the impatient pair were coupled as man
and wife. But the felicity of the swain was of
short duration; their honeymoon was so brief
as to hardly realize one sweet remembrance.—
The next day, while the newly married pair
were sittiug lovingly in their chamber, a good
looking middle aged yellow woman was ushered
into the apartment, who, advancing at once to
the bride, exclaimed :
"Oh! Narcissa, how cruel of you to leave me
in this manner; why did you do it?"
The beautiful "Creole" looked the picture
of confusion, while the astonished bridegroom
demanded an explanation, which speedily
came, and. overwhelmed him with astonishment
and indignation. His lady love was sure
enough the daughter of the intruder, and a
prominent white citizen of Louisville, who had
educated her above the station in which cir
cumstances and the irretrievable blemish of
color had placed her. Two weeks before she
became acquainted with the young dry geode
man, she eloped with a heartless scoundrel,
who' left her in Columbus, but not without
means, for besides a good wardrobe and jew
elry, she had over one hundred dollars in her
possession. Finding herself deserted she came
to this city, when what we have narrated en
sued. How she intended to explain and smooth
matters to her young husband, is a matter of
conjecture, but the abrupt intrusion of her
maternal relative, who had traced her first to
Columbus and then to this city, produced the
sudden denouement. The young man, who is
respectably connected in this locality, has dis

THE YOUTHFUL HENRY OF NAVARRE.-Mot
ley, in his history of the United Netherlandit,
remarks of the gallant Henry :
At this very name, a figure seems to leap
forth from the mist of three centuries, instinct
with ruddy, vigorous life. Such was the in
tense vitality of the Bearnese Prince, that
even now he seems more thoroughly alive and
recognizable than half the actual personages
who are fretting their hour upon the stage.
We see, at once, a man of moderate stature,
light, sinewy and strong; a face browned with
continual exposure ; small, mirthful, yet com
manding blue eyes, glittering from beneath an
arching brow, and prominent cheek-bones, a
long hawk's nose, almost resting upon the
salient chin, a pendent moustache, and a thick,
brown, curly beard, prematurely grizzled ; we
see the mien of frank authority, and magnifi
cent good humor ; we hear the ready sallies of
the shrewd Gascon mother wit, we feel the
electricity which flashes out of him and sets
all hearts around him on fire, when the trumpet
sounds to battle.
The headlong desperate charge, the snow
white plume waving where the fire is hottest,
the large capacity for the enjoyment of the
man, rioting without affectation in the certami
nis guadia, the insane gallop, after the combat,
to lay its trophies at the feet of the Cynthia,
of the minute, and thus to forfeit its fruits ; all
are as familiar to us as if the seven distinct
wars, the hundred pitched battles, the two
hundred sieges, in which the Bearnese was
personally present, had been occurrences of
our own day.
PORTRAIT OF AARON 13uan.—A New York
correspondent thus describes the impression
made upon his mind by an half hour's study
of Yandel,yn's celebrated portrait of Aaron
To one who knows Burr's character, the por
trait is absolutely astounding. Indeed, though
I heard it was there, and went to see it, I
walked past it twice, looking straight at it, and
then was directed to it by a clerk. Imagine,
as Aaron Burr, the soldier, murderer, seducer,
duellist, the rank and rotten profligate in pol
itics, in morals, in business, the most audacious
and cunning of lawyers, plotters, traitors—
imagine a gentleman of early middle age, fresh
colored, with hair brushed up back from his
forehead and temples a la sixty years ago, the
upright collar and elegant lace rubles of the
time, a delicate clean cut nose, a forehead and
temples in no way remarkable, arched, distinct
eye-brows, eyes of a dark liquid deep brown,
lips full, a chin narrow and finely chiseled, and
about the eyes and mouth a most unmistakable
expression of sensitive, almost feminine sweet
ness and purity and unsophisticated innocence.
That is absolutely and definitely the character
of the portrait. The owner, a gentleman in
Brooklyn, will sell it, but does not say for hoW
much. It would be perfectly safe to pui it in
your parlor and call it "Portrait of a young
A SBNTENTIOUS SPEECH BY WAsmnoTon.—
An aged citizen of Hartford relates the following
reminiscence of Washington. We copy from
the Boston Journal;
When Washington made his progress to the
Northern States in 1779 he avoided, as was
proper under the cfroutastances, passing through
Rhode Island, which had not then accepted the
Constitution. The nearest point to that State
at which he stopped was the town of Plainfield,
Connecticut, where he passed a night. A large
party of ladies from Providence had made the
journey to Plainfield to sec him. The throng
of citizens of the town and the surrounding
parts was so great that these ladies, who were
assembled in a room in the hotel opposite to
that in which the reception was held, after
waiting many hours were almost in despair of
their object, when the Committee of Arrange
ment stated their case to Washington and
proposed that. he afford them the gratilientiOn
of seeing him by going to the room where they
were. To this, with his accustomed gallantry,
he et oucc assented. Entering the room he
placed himself on an elevated position, bowed
to the ladies, and uttered these words, "Ladies

far would you go to see a young one 2" bowed

Mn. LINCOLN'S MIDNIOHT EgoArena.—The
flight of Mr. Lincoln, disguised in " a Scotch
plaid cap and a very long military cloak," as
his friends assert, to avoid anaeeination at Bal
timore, is an event too serious to be passed over
lightly. The reputation of the country, of a
sovereign State, and particularly of the city
of Baltimore, demands a full and unshrinking
investigation of the whole affair. If it be true
that a plan had been formed to take the life of
the President elect by a base and cowardly
combination of men associated for that purpose,
it should be known—the guilty parties should
be exposed and punished—otheyh:hinonulodeebnet may like dogs, that thP honor
be vindicated and the crime of the guilty
expiated. The charge has been unequivocally
made—let it be proved, or let the brand of
public indignation sink deep into the foreheads
of the libellers. The country should insist
upon this—no less ; or else the vile imputation
that our nation is a land of cut-throats—that
human life is not safe in one of the largest
and most refined and enlightened cities in
America, will rest upon us a stigma exciting
the scorn Of the civilized world.—Boston Post,
