A STOEY TOE, THE TIMES.
'All lull, sir ! But I guess you'll manage
ta stand for the nest fifty miles !"
Mr. Smith, the spruce youn:j conductor
0:i the Ceutr.il R-iiI.iy cars, ushered in a
uW'pit,sliabbiIy attired old man, who lean
e.Ucarily on his staff, and carried a heavy
vaii-e in one hand.
The long dimly lighted car ni fall; eve
ry scat was occupied ; band boxes and car-pL-t-liags
were held in their owner's laps,and
tli-'te was n jt a single chance for the new
turner to be accommodated.
A couple of score of faces lifted them
selves to glance at the old man's face, as he
moved slowly and painfully down the nar

lial as much a- he could do to support him

was just recovering from a severe illness

There were tunny well, active looking,

grasped his valise, and came over to the
side of Miss Winchester.
"Madame," he said, "you have made an

She t lulled, wiaved all thanks, and gave
him her card. lie bowed and left her just
as I'itz James appeared to escort her from
(the cars; but getting through the crowd
was uo easy matter, for the fuss and bustle
were unusual, and Isabel noticed that sever
al uniformed companies filled the space in
front of the depot.
Cries of "Hurrah for General Sutherton! "
"Three cheers for the hero of Mexico !"rent
the air ; banners were trailed out on the
fresh night breeze ; flambeaux flashed,
drums beat, and a long line of carriages
filled up the street.
Fitz James inquired the occasion of all
this tumult, and learned that it was a pub
lic welcome extended by the cilizcuscf JJos
ton to General Sutherton, a gentleman and
veteran oifiner, who had distinguished him
self in the Mexican war.
''lie came on this train," said a bystand
er, "Is it possible, sir, that you did not dis
cover him? a sickly looking old man, dress
ed in thread bare grey and carrying a large
black valiese he has just recovereJ from a
severe attack of rheumatic fever, which has
troubled hi ji ever sincee his last campaign.
Those vile Mexican night vapors,and sleep
ing on the cold ground, undermined his
constitution, but he is a fine old fellow yet."
Miss Winchester thought lie must be;
.she had heard much of his gailant daring,
but Fit z James was the picture of sileut
Miss Winchester and her cousin stopped
at the American House, and early the next
morning, before the lady had finished dress
it g, a servant brought a note bearing her
Isabel tore it open, and there fell out two
cards of invitation to a ball to be held at
the Itevcre that evening, in honor of Gen.
One card bore the name of Fitz James,
the other was directed to herself. She had
no acquaintance in Bjston, consequently
the invitation must have been sent at the
instance of (Jeneral Sutherton himself.
Fitz James surprised aud humiliated at
this mark of distinction, for tie could real
ize that the invitation had been extended to
him solely to tsave his cousins feelings.
Hut, notwithstanding this, he wished to ac
cept it, if only he could have an opportunity
til' excusing his yesterday's impoliteness to
the great aian.
The journey to Nahant was deferred one
day; and early that evening the cousins
were at the ltevere, where a biillant coterie
had already assembled.
General Sutherton, reclining in an arm
chair at the head of the great drawing room,
received his friends as they passed by, one
eiving place to another: but when Isabel
was presented, he detained her hand to say:
"i'leasesit down ou this ottoman at my
side; 1 have a relative here to whom I wish
to present you."
It was nut long crc a singularly ; hand
some young man came' up to the General,
smiling a friendly welcome, and the veteran,
turning to Isabel, said :
"Miss Winchester, allow me to present to
jou my son, Alfred Sutherton, who is very
grateful for the kindness which you last eve
ning bestowed upon his father."
The youug man bowed, and his father
''Whenever I see a young person volun
tarily render respect to the ged, lam con
strained to admire him or her, as a rule of
the good old politeness which reigned over
show and hcartlessness when I was a lad.
It is all hollow ceremony. now, my dear : and.
il the oi d nnn cannot stand without assist
ance, he is thrown down and trodden upon.
Uut there is a march, or my ears deceive
me: Alfred do you need a further hint, or
must your rheumatic old lather set you au
exempt ; ot courtesy ?"
The young man started and colored for ho
had teen gaziug so intently on the rare
beauty of M iss Winchester, that he had for
gotten time and place.
"It Miss Winchester will permit me," he
said, offering his arm ; and iu a moment af
ter they were lost in a throng of promctia
Mr. Sutherton sejtucd bent on showing
his gratitude to the lady for the kindness
she had rendered his father, for he had
scarcely quitted her side during the even
ing, aud at the etidot the week he followed
her to Nahant, where he continued for two
utoutbs, the vttenois of Fitz James, and the
enemy of all the young fops who aspired to
the hand and fortune of the beautiful Miss
Fitz James Eustace had long been his
cousin's suitor, and it was, with ill concealed
chagrin that he now saw himself thrown in
the shade by the son of that "wretched
specimen," who ought to have found a
place out ot all decent people's company.;
Karly in the New 1'ear there was a mar
riage ceremony performed in the old South
Church, and Alfred Sutherton was the
groom and Isabel Winchester the bride. An
elegant house on Beacon Street, received
the young couple, for Alfred is engaged in
business at Boston, and every year the hale
old General comes down from hjs house at
N to visit his children.
So you sec that politeness gained a bus-;
baud for one woman, and it will bring hap
piness to all if they will but practice it ; for
true politeness springs from the heart, and
is the cfTervesccn.se of a kindly Christian ;

all with whom it comes in contact. 1

by the river,
"Where we lived content and happy as the swal

mournful shiver '
Dropping down upon my forehead heavy tear
drops from its leaves.
Long I trod the grass grown pathway saw the
dew-drops fla.-h and quiver
Watched the shadows as I watched thcili in that

And dead hopes, like walking corpses, gathered
there iu ghastly hosts.
Oh, vain love! oh. fruitless anguish '. oh, beloved,

There was none to cheor me, in that hour of

While the long resisted anguish, growing wider,

Overwhelmed my soul in its dark torments, like

Thus has passed my dream of wifehood, thus my
crown of life has crumbled,
Thus have drooped and died its roses, 'till the

Like a young bird in its singing, by an arrow

There is a blithesome maiden that lives
next door to me : her eyes as black as mid
night, and handsome as can be; her checks
are full of dimples,and red as any rose ; and
then, this love of mine, too, has got a llo
man no.se! I asked her if she'd have me,
(that was the other night,) and this was her
reply, friends: "Why, Jimmy, you are
tight !" Says I, "I know I have, love, a
board a little wine, but that is not the ques
tion will you, or not, be mine?" And
then she put her face, frieuds, -as near mine
as she could, and with the sweetest smile,
friends, said simply that she woold escort
me to the door it I was ready to depart.
And thus it was the girl next door decliued

of the El Paso Journal, speculatin' in my

benefit of my family, when there came a
knock at the door.
There, says T, some one anxioas to sub
scribe for the El Paso Journal, sa I uttered
in a loud tone of voice, "come in."
She was dressed in a pair of store boots
and an iron gray set of spectacles, and she
walked up to me with majesty in' her mein.
I knew who it was the minute I set my eyes
It was a woman.
I gracefully arose and said, "How are yon

She fixed her glassy eyes on me and said :

"No, maam," said I, "I am a Presby

bark with usover the sea of equal suffrage?"
"Maam," said I, "I haint any objection
to takin a quiet sail with you, provided the
boat ain't leaky and you'll do the rowin'."
A smile perused her features for a mo

suffer for the caws."
"Yes," said I, in a polite and softeniu'
manner, "It'll only cost two dollars, and
we'll seud it to your address for an entire

' I her;" said I wonderin' what she was
coniin' at. "So that yon see I couldn't
marry you ef I wanted to ever so much." I
threw this in as a soother.
"Air you wl!!in' that she should share
with you the trials aiid burdens of life?"
"I ain't noways perticular," said I, "and
I'll let her shoulder the whole of 'em cf the

"Wood you consent that she should go to

"She can go where she pleases," said I,
"she ginnerly duz."
"Yew air a hole souled man," said she
and throwiu' her arms around my neck laft
"Git out," said I, "what are you up to?
I aiu't oIhj of -tbeiu men. Stop.-"-. -
After much labor I succeeded in unloos
ening her hold and set her down in a chair.
I judged from tier conduct that she stood in
need of a few moral observations.
'Yoo air an impulsive femail," said I.
"Yoor nature is at once spontaneous aud
out brcakin'. You need a pair of tuartin
gails. Consider what would be your state

She wiped her face with her dress. She

"Darn the franchises," says I, in a rage,
"they arc the things that women put on be

"Xo, no.V said she they are panniers."
"Well," said I, "panniers or franchiics,

They degrade the hnnian form into the

down on all fours like a cat." .
"Then," said she, "come with uie, and

I asked uiy visitor.
"I aat a pilgrim," she said, "I belong to

Of the rich ask nothing. sn
Some years ago the worthy citizens of the
town of F in the State df Maine, voted
in their natural wisdom to purebftse a fire
engine. Thereupon an order was transmit
ed to Boston for one of. Hunnemac's crack
tubs, and a company was formed to take
charge ot it upon iu reception. Uut the
most difficult matter in relation to the affair
was to select a proper foreman.. ' However,
after mature deliberation, their choice was
fixed upon 'Squire iV a wdrthy ex -representative
and trader of the town, who had
seen the murchutes in operation on one or
two occasions during a trasient visit to Bos
ton. ' In due course of time the chairman of
the Board of Selectmen received a bill of
lading of the engine, aud a few daj s after,
rumor announced to the company that the
sloop Susan Jane was coming up the river
with the tub on board.
The b'hoys dropped their hoes, scythes,
and pitchforks, and started for the landing.
As soon as the sloop touched the wharf,
they took possession of the tub, and snaked
her unto the wharf. After various conjec
tures upon the mode of opcratiou of the frit
ter, they attached the suction hose iri Order'
"to see her squirt."
At this moment the chairman of the Board
of Selectmen approached, and in a tone of
authority told the boys that machine cost
too much money to be played with, and
that "they'd better onship that leather pipe
before the foreman came, or he would raise
Ned with 'em."
By this time the worthy foreman (who
upon the first intimation of the arrival of
the engine, had gone home and donned his
ruffled shirt and representative suit) arrived
to assume the active duties of his office.
"Fall in, boys," he exclaimed, "man the
tope, two and two. I'm foreman, and I'll
go ahead. Now then forward march I"
Aud off they started up the hill, down
Ragged Lane, over the bridge, up to the
Sleepy Hollow, around Dogtown Corner,
across Ten Shares, and through every high
way and byway of the town, until their
weary legs and-the setting sun admonished
them that it was time to tie up.
That was a great day for the town and the
foreman; and for an hour after tea he sat
and expiated to his wife upon the responsi
bilities of his station. At length he retired
and was soon locked in the arms of Mor
pheus, vhiie his worthy spouse lay wide
awake, wondering when her valiant lord
would have an opportunity to distinguish
himself. - . 1 - -
Her reflections, however, were soon dis
turbed by a bright light glaring into her
chamber windows. Could it be possible.
There was there must bo a (ire some
"Husband ! husband !" she said, "there
is a fire !'
' "Wake her up !" shouted the new fore
man, half waking.
"There's a fire, I tell you," said she.
"Poh, let it burn!"
"There's a fire, and I'm going to get up
and see where it is."
"Pshaw, you fool! you will catch your
death of cold!"
"But I tell you there is a fire scooting up
"They're only burning brush at Sleepy
"No it's the other way."
"Well, I 'spose it is Captain True's brick
"Why, good Lord, it is Deacon Uutmau's
house up to Four Corners ! It's all of a
light blaze!" . : .
"Well, gt into bed, you fool, and let it

A most remarkable case of conformity to
hotel rules at some personal inconvenience,
is rclatod by the Cleveland Plaindealcr: A
guest at one of our hotels the other even

tenderly embracing the chambermaid. The
landlord robnked him some what angrily and
wanted to know the reasou of sush conduct.
"Simply obeying the rules of the house,"
said the guest, pointing to a card tacked to
the room door. "Don't" it read, any neg
lect of servants should be reported at the
office 'i. I don't want, to be reported at the
office for ncelcct of servants.'do I ?"

Old Bill W. was dying. He was an ig
norant mas and a very wicked one. Dr. D.
an excellent physician and a very pious man,
was attending hiin. The old fellow asked
for bread. : The Doctor approached the
bedside, and in a Tery solemn tone remark
ed; "My dear friend, a man cannot livo
from bread alone." "No," said the old
fellow slightly revived, "he's 'blegod to

dropped. " """
An old bachelor, picking up a book, ex
claimed, upon seeing a wood-cut represent

"Before I would kneel to a wotuau,I would
encircle my neck with a rope aud stretch it. "
And then turning to a young woman, he in
quired: "Do you not think it would be the
best I could do?" "It would, undoubted
ly, bo the best for the woman," was the sar
castic reply--"-- ":
A black man in Norfolk a few nights ago
burglariously entered a house, mounted to

the pavement, picked himself up in an ap
