What's your opinion )
One of the most attractive girls I ever
knew was Louisa Bellamy. The Bellamy*
were well-connected, hat very poor—with
large family—two sons and eight daugh- i
tern. Louisa was the youngest of all.
The boys entered the East India Com- .
pnny'a service, and had been fortunate. 1
Charlee, the eldest, especial) v so. Circum
stances helped him very early, and he had
married a rich girl soon after his arrival in
India. Every ooe of his sisters had been
sent to him successively, and he had con
trived to find a good "pixrti" for each. All
had married well, and most of them were i
settled ia India.
Louisa's turn had come now. She was
going to India on the Bengal, of which I '
was ah officer, to get married. And she
meant to marry well.
George Armstrong, one of our passengers,
had nothing but his pay and a small pri
vate income of fifty pounds a year. Ann- j
strong grew to be quite a favorite on board
the Bengal, and he and I struck up a real
friendship. He took a fancy to me just as
I did to him.
The ship sailed on, the time flying by.
So pleasantly did it pass that we were well
down south tad across the south-east
trades before soy one began to talk of get
ting to the Cape. The weather kept fine; j
the evening promenades were continued,
as well as the flirting; and Mr. Armstrong
was invariably the companion of Miss Bel
lamy. In abort, it was, with him. the old
orv; be had played with edged tools, and j
cot his fingers.
One night I was keeping the first watch,
walking fore and aft the poop, when he'
came up and turned about with me. I
thought I'd rally him.
"Well, Armstrong, so you're in for it at
last P
"Pooh ! nonsense F returned he, turn
ing as red as a crimson sunset.
"It is useless your trying to deceive me,
man—and perhaps yourself also. I see it
all plainly."
u Well, upon my word. I believe It is sa
you say, old fellow," he acknowledged,
coming round. "I can't help myself."
'•Now, Armstrong, look here—take a
fool's advice. Don't let the fancy go on.
Get out of it while you can. Depend upon
it, you will only be wasting your time and
love upon ber. She is a charming girl; I
believe a truly good girl; but she knows
bow to take the best care of herself. She
is going out to India, as her sister* all did
before her, to find a rich husband."
"You know ber people, don't you 7"
"Yea. I know them. And I know the
creed tbey have brought her up in. Be
lieve me, Armstrong, Louisa Bellamy will
never look seriously on a poor man like
"I suppose you are right," he said, after
a pause. "I have thought all along that
she was only amusing herself with me.
It's this: she attracts a man against his
wilL But lH cut the matter short from
The next day Armstrong seemed to be
keeping to bis determination, for be did
not speak to Louisa more than common
civility demanded; and when in the cuddy,
always seated himself at a safe distance. '
But this could not last. The ice in
George Armstrong's bosom melted ; his
good resolves gave way. When fine ,
weather returned, and the evening walks
were resumed, he and Miss Bellamy were
again promenading the poop, aide by side.
And, all this time was she smitten 7 Not
one bit, that I could detect; and I watched
her closely. 1 felt sure that I had taken
her true estimate; she was of the world,
One evening, some two months after
leaving England, the ship was going about
five knots, with the yards braced up, when
suddenly there was a loud cry from the
"Man overboard P*
What a state of panic and confusion the
passengers were in! All the crew came
on deck in an instant; even tbey who had
been in their bunks.
"Who is it 7" I asked as I sprang aft.
"Mr. Armstrong," was the reply.
"Hard down the helm," I shouted, all
hands on deck. Let go the main tack and
bowline, mainsheet; back the mii> yard.

In a very short time the ship was stop
ped, and toe boat traveling as fast as four
good men could pull her, toward tbe place
where Armstrong could be seen from aloft
swimming about. Unfortunately, he had
• not reached the life-buoy thrown to him.
It was now a question of now long he
could keep up. The weather was fine, and
the water comparatively smooth ; but
there was a good deal of swell on.
It was a most anxious time. The sus
pense was terrible. Most of the passen
gers, certainly all the ladies, were literally
in fear and trembling for a human life.
We could only await the boat's approach.
All hoped and expected that he had been
picked up. but no one was sure of it He
might bare gone down, exhausted, just as
the boat was getting to him. A few min
utes would solve the question.
Louisa Bellamy was on the poop with
the others. For the first time I observed
something which told me that she, too,
perhaps, might have had her feathers
scorched from fluttering too near the
flame. There was no mistaking it; she j

The boat was returning. Had they

strong's lost."
"No; he ia saved," said the t'aplaiu,
'for 1 see him. Thank God." And with
the good words there arose a sudden com
motion and flutter.
"What's the matter with Miss Bellamy !
Oh dear I Mis* Britain v ha* tainted !"
It was true. They had to catch her as
ahe was foiling. The strain on the ner
vou* yst*iu had been too great. Nothing
was thought ot it; she *oon revived,
laughed it off, ami called herself stupid for
fainting "at such a trifle."
The lioat came alongside, ami Arwstioug
scrambled up the side-ladder.

Sometime* I fancied this imliflerence was
only assumed ; hut. if so, it was cleverly
done. Event*, however, were bringing on
a crisi*.
Some time after thi* event, one night,
when I had relieved the second mate, the
night was tine, aud tolerably elesr. t'lear
enough overhead. But on the water there
was a sort of hght mist, aud the rays of
tbe moon, which was now about two hour*
high, were daxxling. The hreeie had
freshened, and we bad quite eu jogh of it
far the small stuns'il*. I took my usual
turn round the decks, cautioned the look
out man, ami returned to the poop.
About hall-past one 1 reckoned up, men
tally, that we must have about run very
neariy the distance required to make a low
island. --Davis," I said to tbe third mate,

Suddenly, a coup'e ot gull* *hrieked
overhead. "By heaven*!" thought I,
"that's a warning, and Til accept it." I
hurried forward, determined to remain on
the lookout myself. Aa 1 ascended tbe
forecastle ladder, Davis was in the set of
coming down, and met me.
"Is that you, Sir ? There'* something
ahead I can't quite make .out. I was
comirg aft to tell you. It look* like a sort
of cloud."
Pushing post hitu, I took one look. Fur
a second of time my heart seemed to turn
quite cold and stand still. I felt half sick.
The next moment 1 was all right; tbe
•hock had been too heavy. There was the
island scarcely a mile en. I could see tbe
surf distinctly with the glome*, and the
ship was tearing along straight for it, aliout
ten knots an hour. We ought to have
seen it sooner, but the glare of tbe moon
rendered tbe horizon all round quite black
looking ; while at tbe same time its rays
on the water made the surf impossible to
be distinguished st a distance.
For a moment I thought nothing could
save tbe ship. Fortunately, I have always
been very cool ; quite self possessed in sud
den emerge not--, as in moments of the
greatest peril. It is my nature to be so;
and I wish all sailors could say tbe same.
There was but one thing that could save
ua; and 1 tried it.
"Hard up! haul up," I shouted to the
helmsman. "Call all bands to save ship

and sheet, too, somebody.All this had
occupied less than half a minute; ami I
now met the tlfyrd mate with his startled
and anxious face.
Two minutes more, and we were in a
pretty pickle. The helm liad been nut
hard up, and the ship spun round on ber
hevl like a top. She was now flat aback
by the Ice, and going stern first toward
the islaud. The men bad been too slow in
their movements; and before the yards
could be braced round tbey had taken
aback. Tbe state of confusion wa* fright
ful. I got up oil to the poop All the
crew were out on the deck, some pulling
on one rope, some on soother, all of them
talking, many frightened and bewildered.
This would never answer.
"Silence, fore and aft! Attend to the
word of com mind. Mr. Greet), bring your
watch into the poop and turn this main
yard round. Do you hear there, starboard
watch on the poop. Fort watch, haul in
the port cross jack braces."
The Captain rushed on deck.
"There's the land, Sir," 1 said, "that
black streak ; and there's tbe broken wa
And uncommonly close it was to us.
Tbe Captain looked bewildered.
"Shift the helm, my lad." 1 said to the
man at the wheel. "Now, Sir," I contin
ued, •'you see how she is. If you will take
charge. I'll go downt on tbe main deck and
get the bead yards to rights; tbe boat
swain is making a regular mess of it. And
with all the lee stuns'!* set and the swing
ing boom out, it's an awkward job."
"All right, W he replied. "IU
look after her."
The scene in the cuddy vi a terrible
one. When the starting cry was echoed
along the decks and through the cabins,
"All hand* save ship," tbe passengers had,
one and all, expected immediate ship
wreck, and death a* a natural corsequenee.
In these moments of sudden peril on board
ship, and especially if they occur at nighty
passengers, invariably give way to excess of
terror. It is bnt natural. The women
rushed from their hed* shrieking, sobbing,
talking wildly. Tbey did not dare to go
on deck, but huddled themselves in s group
in the cuddv. To add to tbe confusion,
tbe lamp had gone out, and tbey were in
darkness. Gsorge Armstrong had hurried
back from the poop st first, in search of
Miss Bellamy. Believing that the ship
must inevitably go ashore in tbe next few
moments, he ignored ceremonv and burst
into her cabin. She had just left her bed.
There was no light, but instinct told her
who was coming to the rescue.
"Oh George, George! what is tbe dan
ger 7"
For answer, George Armstrong took her
to him, and clasped her in his strong arms.
It was no time tor concealing the peril.
"My dearest," he said, "a few moments
may end all. Even as I speak to you. tbe
ship's bottom is in danger of being knocked
out; in which case we most all perish."
She was dreadfully agitated. And in
that moment, each one believing it to be
the last, reticence was thrown away.
With the fear of death before us, we dare
not persist in a lie; and George Armstrong
heard bow passionately she loved htm.
And they msdc a compact, each with
each, that if, by God's mercy, they should
come unscathed out of this peril, they
would become to ooe another mm and

Then he rushed np on deck and found
some of the passengers helping the crew to

fell to with his great strength, doing more

"I say, Harry, what is the meaning of

"Well, I see you guc**," was my hurried

Major Bellamy did not see his way clear to

had grown to like Armstrong. I was at
the wedding ; and we had a pleasant time,

imagine. Mr*. Bellamy dashed down tbe
letter announcing the event with a groan.
She had not patience to read further.

change in a few mouths—and to h-r moth

her wrath. "To think that she should tie

regiment, with nothing but hia nay, when
she might have done to well! I'U never i
forgive her; never."
She did, however, when Armstfong se
cured his majority, and wealth and petition
followed as a natural consequence.
An Important Derision
! Iu the United States Supreme Court
at Washington, a decision was rendered
in the cast- ol Bnffinton r*. Due, error to
the Circuit Court for the ftstrict of
Massachusetts. Tbe defendant in emu
waa judge of the Probate Conrt for Barn
stable County, Maaaaehnaetts, and the
plaintiff in error, as collector of internal
revenue, exacted of the judge income
on his salary. The tax was paid under
, protest, and this notion waa brought to
recover the amount The court below
held that the tax was unconstitutional,
and awanh-d judgment for plaintiff, for
the amount claim* d. That judgment
waa now affirmed, the court holding that
tbe judical power of the Htatea is exempt
from Federal taxation. AH the thirteen
States were in possession of thia power,
and were exercising it at the time of the
adoption of the Constitution, and it ia
not pretended that any grant of it waa
tnade to the general government by that
instrument. It is, therefore, one of the
sovereign powers vented in the States by
their constitution which remains un
altered and unimpaired, and in respect
of which the States are aa inde]>cn<lciit
of the general government as that gov
ernment ia independent of the State*.
Tbe supremacy of the general govern
ment therefore cannot be maintained.
The two governments are upon an
equality, and the question ia whether the
powi r to levy and collect taxes enables (
the genera] government to tax the saUrv
of the judicial officers of a State, whtcb
officers are instrumentalities employed iu
carrying into execution its most impor
tant function*. It is not held that the
mere establishment of the judicial de
partment and the appointmeut of offl
oers to adminster the laws beiug among
the reserved powers of the States dis
ables the general government from levy
ing the tax that depends upon the ex
press powers to levy and oollect taxes ; i
but it is regarded as showing that it is
an original inherent power never parted
with, and in respect of which the supre
macy of the general government doew not
txi't. It is said that thia 1 icing an original
reserved power in the States, and the
judicial officer appointed under it being
a means or instrumentalitv employed to
carry it into effect, the right and majesty i
of it* -unimpaired exercise, and the \
exemption of the officer from taxation
by the General Government, stand upon
solid ground, and are maintained by
principles and reasons as eogent as those
which led by the exemption of Federal
officera from taxation by the Btate ; for
in reojiect of those deferred power* the
Btate is aa sovereign and independent
as the General Government Mr. Justice

TUB FONDNESS of certain animals for

instances of this is to lie found in

conclusion for Mr. ItoWrtson, to wh-<—•
daughter Clara the ghost revealed the
mystery of the jar buried tinder a tn-e and
containing valuable documents affecting
the ownership of the college property. |
i It will be remembered that the jar, when
found, waa placed for safe keeping io
the care of Mr. Bobettaon, who was uot
to open it till he had kept it for a
month. The month had expired a day
or two ago, but liefore its exptratiou Mr.
Robertson heard, st d<-nd of night, a
noise in hi* woodshed. He went to see
what was the occasion of it, w hen lie was
luuanltcd bv M-vertd men. who aaid they
would kill fiim if he would not tell when
the jar was. He refused to do so, and
1 they beat him terribly. At last be yield- j
.-d, the mysterious cr<iok was taken away
by the robber*, gnd now Mr. HoWrtson
lies next to death's door.
A DAILY BATH for the whole liodv is not

oot, at least once ada v. 'Die feet need
washing as much aa tin- head, a* pgrapi
ration ii|on them is very sbundant. Feet
that are cased in wool mud leather arc
not excepted from this necessity of
cleansing. Digestion is freer when water
is applied above the orgvna of digestion ; j
and the washing of the client help* one
to breathe more freely. Bathing makes
the limbs more supple, and it opens the I
muacles to breathe from, if Mich an nn-;
scientific statement mav lie permitted,
j All will agree tliat in the second month
of rammer a daily liath is n luxury Dot
to lie omitted, but in winter it is hardly

follows makes it a luxury in the most

that the only shin-lame in the larder was

duke's person, though uot acquainted
with him, took a seat within ear-ahot of

('oprntß bronzing powder is prepared

state of division, which is done in the
workshops, by treating a solution of a

very difficult to remove the finely divided ,

is not readily deposited at the bottom of

However, by neutralizing tlie alkali with

according to Euclid, is that which has
no parts and no magnitude. A pin can
not stand on that which has no porta,

Pioche that don't want to work. Tome,
the town looks dull. Tbe merchants say
it is overdone. It looks very much that
way. There are shout three hundred

called upon to support a population of
two thousand. • Stores, saloons, faro

these branches of business can not be
well patronised, the patronage must be
distributed which makes light business

Throughout Japan it is the universal
diatom for young ladies, when arriving
at the ago of fourteen an J fifteen, to be
placed in what mar he appropriately
called a ft Dialling catabliahmeub This
establishment has the following among
other peculiarities, vis : All the masters
par fur the privilege of teaching, instead
of (as the oaae is with na) being paid far
their lessons. This makee the instruc
tion a labor of love. Then, again, to a
certain ejtent, a Japanese young lady is
allowed considerable freedom aa to the
selection of her instructors; she gener
ally prefers the beat looking. The
scholars do not ait in a doae, pent-up
room, filled with girls bolt unngbt,
each perched upon an educational stool,
bnt in a delightful garden fragrant with
tea and flowers, surrounded by a num
ber of little summer booses embowered
in the midst of the most charming
vegetable products. Hare are the bright
eyed damsels, with cheeks- ss pink as
the rosea, moving around with graceful
steps, each bearing a small lacquer tray
with tea and cakes. In each of these
summer houses there is a master or pro
feasor, either waiting the return of one
of the refreshment-bearing damsels, or
else sitting by the side of one who has
already come back. Japanese girls re
main in educational seminaries of this
kind until marriage, and they make
excellent wives.
