GREAT SLEIGH RIDE.
JJY JOHN NEAL.
Aa I was fioing pa'st Mr. J03I1 Rartor'a
tavern this otlicr d;iy, I hear a terrible
noisa in tlio bar room,and thinks I I'll
just put my hsail if, and sco what's tho
matter. "Whoorah !" roared a heap of
fellows, "here's Johnny llccdle, he'll go
and that will make ten ;" and they haul'd
me in among them. "What's the occa
sion ?'' Bays I. "A sleigh ride, over to
Shaw's (every body goes to Shaw's that
goes a sleigh riding) with Cddlo and
"Whoorah 1" says I.
"I motion," said Dr. Patridgo,' "that
every gentleman go right off now, and get
his sleigh and his lady, and meet at Hank's
corner;" and with another whoorah, we
burst out of the door and scattered.
I ran full ppeed to the widow Heart's.
Her daughter Patty is tho handsomest girl
in Oasco bay. I had given her some pret
ty broad hints, and only waited for a good
chance to pop the ijucstion. And out it
shall come, this very night, says I.
I bounced into tho widow Rean's out of
breath, and was near catching Patty in
tho suds. Sho waijust done waihincr.and
was wringing out, standing in the midst of
tub3, mops aud kettles. Sho was struck
all of a heap at the r-ight of her spark
aud would have blushed nicely, I guess, if
sho hadn't been as sho could, already.
"A word in your car, Patty," says J,
giving her Iho wink, and stepping into tho
corner, I told her what was brewing. ''Ill
mil and borrow tho dt-acon's sleigh, and
como back right away," says I. "O, you
needn't bo in such a tearing hurry," says
she, "for I've got to shift from top to too.
You sco what a pickle I'm in."
''Ah, Patty," says I, "beauty when un-
adorncd's adorned the ." "Well, I
vow," says Patty, says she, and off I shot,
for how was I to follow up such a bold
speech j but I could not help sniggering all
tho way to tho deacon's to think how swim
mingly matters were going on. I was so
full of this, that I entirely forgot to mako
up 0 story to fop off upon tho old deacon,
till I got almo:t to tho door j lor the dea
con i3 a sworn enemy to all frolics, and so
is his marc. "I'll tell him I want to car
ry a grist to mill." Rut that will be found
out. "No matter ,o it is after election, aa
tho politicians say."
"Tho deacon gavo a mortal squint at
my face, when I did my errand, but I was
behind a shirt collar. He then fell to
chewing his cud and considering. "Moth
er's clean out," says I, "both ryo and m
jun," The deacon spit. "Well, neighbor,
if you aro afraid to trust a feller, there s
two shilling beforehand."
"Poll, poh, John, said ho, walking up
and pocketing tho money, ''not trust you ?
hear that. Now, Joshua, taeklo up Suky
You'll drive tho critter slow, John, and
now I think on't, you may bring my grist,
that is now at tho mill-and look sharp at

It was to lato to stick at lies now. So , tho liUulcr Keeping 111.10 twin iue uenu,

sat over a heap of warm ashes in tho wid'
ow Roan's parlor, listening to Patty statu
ing about in her stocking feet, in the cham
ber overhead, for one good hour. Then I
stood up to tho looking glass and frizzled
up my hair, changed my breast pin to a
new place, thought over somo speeches to
mako under tho buffalo skin, and finally
laid a plot to lug in the awful question in
a sort of slantinciokular fashion.
At last Patty appeared in allhcr glory ;
I was just crooking my elbow to lead her
out, when in come Mrs. Rean.
''Where aro you going to, Patty!''
"Over to Shaw's, sleighing."
"What, and leave your cousin Dolly all
alone, to suck her finders ! A pretty how
d'yo do that, after coming all tho way from
Saco just to see you !"
Here was a knock down argument. All
my plans of courting and comfoit melted
down aud ran off in a moment. I saw
directly that tho widow was resolved to
push big Dolly l'ishcr into my sleigh,
whether or no ; and there was no remedy,
for tho widow Rean is a stump that is
neither to bo got around or moved out of
tho way. I said something about the
small size of tho sleigh, but it would not
do sho shut my mouth instantly.
"Let 1110 alone," says sho, "I went a
sleighing afore you was born, youngster.
If I don't know how to pack .1 sleigh,who
does! Patty Rean stow yourself away,
here, and thrink yourself up small. If
there ain't room, wo must make room, as
tho fellows used to say. Now, Dolly, ho'nt
yourself in there."
Sho tumbled into tho sleigh, like a shot
from a shovel, or a cart load of pumpkins
into a gondola. It was chuck full of her.
"O, she's a whopper, I tell ye." j
"Why, Johnny Recdle," says Mrs. Rean,
"in my days they use to pack u in, layer
At this hint I sneaked ronnd to Patty,
to begin tho second layer on her lap. Rut
the widow was wide awake. She clenched
mo by tho collar, and patting upon Dolly's
knees. "Hero's tho driver's seat," says
the. "Plant your feet flat and firm, nice ;
jump up Johnny; and now, away with
her my lad."
Ry this time I got so raving mad that I
could hold in 110 longer. I fell afoul of
tlio old marc, and it 1 Uidti t give it to her
about riglit, then there s none ot 1110, that s ,
all. Tho deacon counted tho welts 011 her
right side a week afterwards, when ho cal
led on me for a reckoning, which was made
with chalk upon tho upper flap of his eve
ry day hat. Sukey not understanding
such jokes, took tho bit in her teeth and
shot oil", right on cud, liko a streak of now
Oonnccticut lightning T .lirmna! how wo
skimmed ovor it ! And tho homes and
barns, and fences, and tho pig-styes, flew
by us liko clouds by tho moon. "Yonder
is Hank's comer wlioor.il" and "whoo
rah !" answered all the ladies and gentle
men with ono voice. Sukey, scared with
tho noise, turned tho corner with a flirt,
and tho olcigh was bottom up in ' 1
"Whoa there, whoa !"
'1 he first thing that I know, I was in
tho bottom of a snow bank, jammed down
under half a ton of Dolly l'iehcr 1 I tho't
I never should see daylight again, and
when they hauled mo out, I left a print in
tho snow very much liko a cocked up hat
knocked into tho middle of next week, as
tho sailors say.
Ilowsomovcr no bones were broken. We
shook our feathers, and crept into our nest
again, laughing as loud as tho best of them.
Tho sleighs were formed into a string, tho
fiddler following, nnd away wo started on
tho road to Shaw's bells jingling, fiddlo
sounding, and everybody hallooing and
screaming for joy.
Peter Shaw heard tho racket two miles
off, for ho was always on tho look out of a
moonshiny night. Ho fell to kicking up a
dust in tho bast room, to put it to rights,
aud when wo arrived the floor was swept,
tho best Japan candlesticks paraded, and
littlo Ron was auchorcd closo under tho
jam, to tug at tho broken winded bellows,
No firo appeared but there worn strange
symptoms of it, for therd was no lack of
smoke, and part of it, mining the chtui
noy, strayed about tho room, which gavo
mo a chanco to hit off another compliment
on Patty's beauty, as being the cause of
Rawing tho smoke. As soon as wo had
j taken a swig of hot stuff all around, wc
J sat tho fiddler down by tho jamb, took the

took a notion that sho and Siah Oolding
wcro rather thick, conslderin'. Thinks I,
she wants to mako mo jealous, to spur mo
on ; so seeing them in close confab, I poked
my head between them and tried hot! Rut
tho cat was soon out of tho bag. Wo paid
tho reckoning, four and tixpenco a piece.
Think of that. Everybody grumbled, but
Peter Shaw didn't care. Then followed
tho crowding of sleighs, taking in tho
ladies at tho door. Such a hubbub and
confusion I Rut when my turn como, lo
and behold 1 Patty Rean was missing, and
so was Siah Golding 1 Here is tho end of
my story ; and whoever wants to know tho
particulars that happened on tho road
home, must ask Dolly Fisher. Tho deacon
will tell you what 11 pickle Sukey came
home in, and "how much I paid for tho
whistle.'' Finally, whoever went to our
meeting houso tho next Sunday morning,
knows very well how Patty Rean and
Josiah Golding aro to square accounts.
RsAurirur, and Useful Tuouonr.
A littlo daughter, ten years old, lay on
her death bed. It is hard to part with tho
pet of tho family; tho golden hair, th
loving bluo oyes, tho bird like voice, thn
truthful, affectionate child ? Rctwccn this
child and her father there had always ex
isted, not a relationship merely, but tho
love of congenial natures. IIo fell on
his knees by his darling's bedsido and
wept bitter tears. He strove to say but
could not, "Thy will bo done 1" It was
a conflict between grace and nature, such
as he never beforo experienced. His sobs
disturbed tho child, who had been lying
apparnntly unconscious. Sho opened her
oyes and looked very much distressed.
"Papa, dear papa," sho said at length.
''What, my darling ?" answered her fa
ther, itriving for couipoiuro.
"Papa," sho asked, in faint, broken
tones, ''how much do I co:t you CTory
"Hush, dear, do be quiet," ho roplicd,
in great agitation, for ho feared delirium
was coming on.
"Rut please papa how much d I
cost you V
To soothe her, ho replied, though with
a shaking voice, "Well, dearest, perhaps
two hundred dollars. What then darling!
''Rocauc, papa, I thought may be
you would lay it out this year in Ribles
for p00r children to remember mo by."
heavenly joy glanced in tho
father's heart ; the joy of ono noble, lov
ing spirit mingled with its liko. Self was
forgotton tho sorrow of parting ,tho lono
ly future. Naught remained but the mis
sion of love, aud a thrill of gratitude that
in it ho and his beloved wcro co workers.
"I will) "iy iss.- -u;u," liu replied
kissing her brow with solemn tenderness.
''Yes,'' ko added, after a pauso, ''I will
do it every year, as long as I live, and
thus my Lilian shall yet speak, and draw
hundreds and thousands after her to heav
en. Livi.no in' Japan. A correspondent,
writing from tho dominions of tho Tycoon,
gives tho following interesting informa
"You ask us in regard to our mode of
living. It is simply this: You rent a
, houso (.1 moderate-sized houto eoets about
S100 per annum) with soino four or iho
rooms; ono of these, tho frout, is the
office or counting-room ; tho next to tho
rear is tho drawing and dining-room, aud
answers at the same timo for a privato
counting-room. To tho roar of this is the
kitchen. In tho upper story ono room is
occupied by yourself, ono by the house
keeper, and tho other by tho servants,
usually young men, say eighteen to twen
ty, who aro young erraud boys, &o
Your housekeeper, who, by tho way, is
generally a pretty black-eyed young lady,
is very attentivo to your wants. On her
devolves tho wholo charge of tho house,
procuring tho prowsions, washing tho
clothing, aud cooking tho food, besides
keeping tho whole houso thoroughly clean.
Her services coat you her board aud about
fifty to scveuty-fivo dollars per year. Tho
wholo expenso of my family, including
house rent, pay of housekeeper and ser
vants for the last year, has been only fivo
bundled dollxrs somo difference between
this nnd tho cost of living in tho samo
stylo in Philadelphia."
A Western editor complaining that ho
could not sleep 0110 night, summed up tho
causes ;--" A wailiug babo of sixteen
months old, a dog howling under tho win
dow, a cat squalling in tho alloy, a color
ed sercnado in a shauty over tho way, a
toothache, and a pig tryiug to get in at tho
back door "

Curo for Dipthoria.
This scourge of tho family continues to
ravage many sections of our Commonwealth
and counts its victims by hundreds. Wc

of this alarming disease Tho remedy re

Putrid Sore Throat or Dipltsrid and its
Tho distinguishing mark of this malady
from other diseases of tho throat is the for
mation of a membrane, which increases
gradually until tho patient is strangled to
death. To provent tho formation of this
membrano is to arrest and curo the disease.
In tho early stages of the complaiut,whieh
is accompanied by a soreness aud swelling
of the throat, let tho patient use a simple
olut ion of salt and water, as hot ns tho
patient can bear, as a gargle, every fifteen
minutes, nt tho same time moisten a piece
of flannel with a solution of tho samo kind
mado as warm as tho patient can bear it
(as beforo), and bind it around tho throat,
renewing it as often as tho garglo is admin
istered, and in the mean time sprinkle fine
salt between tho flannel and tho nook; use
inwardly somo tonic or stimulant, either
separately, or, if prostration bo groat use
both together. The treatment as may bo
seen, is extremely simple, and if used in
tho earlier stages of tho disease, will effect
a complete cure. I know this to bo a cer
tain curo, as my Mother and Sitter-in-law
both had it and cured themselves with this
simple romedj'. Ry inserting this in your
paper you will oblige,

A writer in tho Ruffalo Comma rial, ft
Lincoln papor, makes tho following con
fession in regard to tho responsibility of
tho North for tho present crisis :
"Let tho North, especially New England
remember that for this fearful result thoy
ara primarily and mainly responsible, by
their treasonable legislation, by birioom
and pulpit assaults upon the South, in
which unholy alliauco of things sacred and
profane, all epithets have been exhausted,
all sound principles abandoned, nnd new
terms of denunciation and hatred invented
irritating at last to madness tho excitable
population of the South, who, for a quarter
of a century, have had theso eoals of firo
heaped upon their heads.
"Let tho North and West ratncmber.al
so, that tho necessary Bubjugation of tho
seceding Statc3 will be a victory without
honor and cause of profit ; that half a cen
tury of propority will hardly rcstoro tho
national loss, or heal the resulting enmities
that commercial distress and almost uni
versal bankruptcy will clotho our cities in
mourning, and rcduco all real estate, both
in city and country,to half its present val
ue. Iict them rcstoro the integrity ot tho
Constitution, repeal all treasonable laws,
and offer tho olivobrtnch to their exasper
ated brethren of tho South. If war must
como, let them go into this dreadful con
troversy with clean hands ; let themselves
of nullification before they proceed to pun
ish it in others."
