"My father," said Mary, "may not think
himself called upon to be as particular a

Mr: Holmes tufned to Bradford intisaitl,
"You know, Henry, that lam aware that
you have net the means of payment, and al
so, that you are not a person likely to be
ruiployed as an split in this business, and
yet I iu,.,i t:1 ileu ill your word.-

him the lottery ticket, NO, 5, 4,:3, 2.

some mistake about the matter, or some
failure or the lottery, by which I shall love."
Henry explained his 'motives and. wish- ,
es, and in too hours be held in his hand a
bill, of sale of the brig Helvetii's, which, as
the papers were not obtained, he immediate
ly re-named Mary. The condition was 1 ,
that Henry was to hold the vessel for forty ;
days, and if, within that iiine„lie Ebouldi
pay 310,000 she Was to be his ; if not, An ,
was to revert to Mr. Holmes, who, in the
meantime, held the ticket as a sort of col-1
lateral security. The bill Of sale, as I saw
it, bore date the sth of February, 1815.-1
Henry felt like a new man. henry felt
like a happy man. He was a ship owner,
in a place where that character was a port
of aristocracy. He went _day, after day
to look at his brig, wishing for the time to i
pass away for the prize to be paid; but he I
said =thing yet to Mr,-Carver.- - -
One evening, while Henry was talking
with Mary, she asked him what he intend-1
ed to do with his weasel, when tha. forty
days were up.
"Rig her, bend her sails, and then sell
her, or send her to sea."
"Why; Henry, it took the whole of the
ticket tobuy the hull and the standing spair.
and it will an half as much more to rig
her and find canvass ; and, besides that,
how could you sell for more than Mr.
Ilohnes could l"
If eniy hesitated. lie had not thought
of that ; but lie did not doubt that it would
all came right . yet.
henry was sitting, the next day. on the
quarter rail of his brig, looking at the masts,
well covered with snow and iite, and think
ing of the better appearance she would
make when the rigger had done his duty.
At length, he felt the hands of Mr. Holmes
upon his shoulder.
"Henry." said the latter. "I am sorry
to have bad news to tell you. Read that
paragraph in the Boston Centinel."
Cormacrion.—The ticket which drew
the highest prize in the Plymouth Beach
Lottery was . 4; 5. 3,2, and not as our
compositor stated last week, 5,4, 3, 2.-
IVe understand that a gentleman of wealth
in the southern part of this town is the for
tunate holder."
"Whanto yon say to that. Henry"'
"Only that the old gentlemankwill not
now say that I have the wages of gambling."
"No. nor will he give you the,crAllit of be
ing a ship owner,' said Mr. Holines..--
" You hive been unfortunate s Henry, and
I am *really sorry for you," continued Mr.
Holmes, changing his tone considerably,
I"and regret my own loss, as I hare need of
the money; but a+ you cannot pay for the
brig,' you had better hand me ihe bill of

Henry drew from his pocket the precious
document, and, while he examined it from
top to bottom. he said ta Mr. Holmes—
" This affair has been to me like a plea

pirations for Mary, which you are acquaint

my pocket-book, and, if I cannot dream as
I have done, r shall not at least be awa-1
kened too Suddenly."
Mr. Holmes of course consented, as he'
reallyladno right to claim the vessel un

Henry went up to . tell. Mary of the torn I

Though Mary respected her father too

"The dream." said Henry, doubtingly
"that dream is not yet come to pass."
Some days after that, there was, as Usual.

"Yes and a large one. ' lhave sold the

four o'clock, to get my pay at the bauk."
"Ilut the.brig was not/ yours, Henry.—
Surely you aro not deranged. You could

"What's the matter with liehry?" said
Sirs. Carver, ass he entered the rootti.
"Has he drawn an o'llier prize'?"''
"igness not, mot her;" - saidiVl*; "only
dreaming again, p erhaps."
At nine 'o'cloc k, Henry arrived from
Plymouth with an aceepted drift for ten
thousand dollars; in favor of Mr. Holmes;
and a bank book in which jte had credit for
an equal sum. And the Irig Mary made
some of the moat profitable voyaget that
were ever projected in Boston.
So me years after that, ltverity-five at
least. as I was riding into Plymouth,' with
Bradford and his grand-daughter, I refer
red to the anecdote, and the conclusion
that "luck Was everything." - I
"There may be something in luck," said
he, "but the nova which I gathered whilej
I held the ticket, with the belief that I had
the prize, the resolutions which I formed I
while sitting and gaziiig at the lofty spars
of my brig, and the confiding virtue, the
filial piety, and the perfect love of May,
did all for tee, and I should have been rich
without the brig. So you see itivas.liope,
contemplation, woman's virture, woman's I
piety, and woman's love, *that made me I
what I am. And let inc add, friend C.,1,
that you and I owe more to woman than!
the world credits to her. Let us, at least, I
do her justice."
The New - Orleans National, in its sketch
of Colonel Doniphan's late remarkable ex
pedition, gives the folloring
The Navajo Indians area waxlike people,
have no towns, or houses, or lodges ; they
live in the open air or on horseback, and
are remarkably wealthy, having immense
herds oft horses, cattle, and sheep. They
are celebrated for their.' intelligence and
good order. They treat their women with
great attention, consider them equi)s, and
relieve them from the drudgery of menial
work. They are handsome, well made,
and in every respect a highly civilized
people—being as a nation of a higher order
of beings than the mass of their neighbors,
the Mexicans. About the time (Jul. Don
iplian made hie- treaty, a division of his
command was entirely out of provisions,
and the Navajos supplied its wants with
liberality. A portion of the command re-.
turned to Cuvano. Major Gilpin's com
mand, together with Col.- Doniphan, went
to the city of the Sumai Indians, living on
thelpo tiscow, which Is supposed to be
a branch of the Geyla, made a treaty off'
peace between the Sumais and Navajos,
and then returned to the Rio Del Norte,

second story of their buildings by ladders,
which they''draw up at night, as a defence'

The Christian Obierver, of Calcutta,
gives a notice of a singular rare of people,
!called the Cathies, who inhabit , a part of
Cuzerat. They are worshippers of the
sun, as are the adoring Parsecs.

"be the ancient Cathies, who, in: the time

, such in the horror at being the cause of his

near Thaum, iledicated to the Sun, and
