"Who counts himself as nobly born
Is noble in despite of place,
Anl honors are but bands to one
Who wearsthem not with nature' 3grace.
The prince may sit with clown or churl.
Nor i'eel his state disgraced thereby ;
Rut he who ha? but small esteem
Husbands that little carefully.
Then be thou peasant, be thou peer,
Count it still more thou art thy own ;
Stand on a larger heraldry
Than that of nation or of zone.
What though not bid to nightly halls ?
These halls have missed a courtly guest ;
That mansion is not privileged.
Which is not open to the best.
Give honor due whrn custom a-ks,
Nor wrangle for the lesser claim ;
It is not to le destitute,
To have the thing without the name.
Then, dost thou come of noble blood,
Disgrace not thy good company ;
If lowly born, so boar thyself
That gentle blood may conic of thee.

sonic months been courted by a young man,
a journeyman hatter. One day the young
girl said to him : "Albert, you have been
pressing me to marry you for three months
and I have postponed the marriage. Now,
however, I will no longer delay it. A rich
lawyer has offered nie $1,000 a month if I
would consent to be a dishonest woman, and
has promised that I should have splendid
apartments on the Fifth Avenue. There is
my hand ; marry me directly." The lover,
highly indignant at the attorney and coun
selor, was too glad to obey the direction.
The marriage took place at the residence of
the bride. The evening before the wedding,
however, the bridegroon told Mary Eliza
beth that he had a secret to tell. He was
not a journeyman hatter, but was one of the
richest men in the city of Boston, and said
he would take her the nest dnv to the beau
tiful country-seat in the suburbs of the mod
ern Athens, whic h he had inherited from his
father and mother, for he, indeed, was an
orphan, 1!1 his bride, his Mary Elizabeth.
The young lover, it appears, ,aw Mary a few
months ago at Barnum's Museum, at the
Wednesday afternoon matined, and fell in
love with her at first sight, and while she
was gazing at the "happy family," consist
ing of cats, rats, dogs, mice and monkeys,
all confined in one cage.
She lived in an attic, and he had taken a
room in the upper story of the same hou-c
to be near her. Thus he could see her every
day aud a mutual passion sprung up between
them. On the 21st of next month the hap
py couple sail in the Arago for Havre, and
after spending the honeymoon and winter
abroad, they will return to their own native
land in the spring-time of the coming year.
Sagacity of the Doo. A gentleman of
the name of M'Lafiin, residing in Rocking
ham county, N. II., a few years ago possess
ed a dog that was very remarkable for his sa
gacity. He one day told the dog to go and
find a handkerchief which his child had lost
in a distant field while picking berries. The
dog started off with his usual alacrity, but
in the course of an hour or two he returned
without the handkerchief, looking as crest
fallen aa though he had been caught in a
neighbor's shccpfold. The .master cuffed
his ears sharply, and told him to go and try
again, and not come back till he hal found
it. The dog started off again with appar
ent reluctance, while the master followed at
a distance behind and unperceived. The dog
went towards the field where the child had
picked the berries, and sat down on his
haunchcs,held down his head, and appeared
to be in a deep, brown study.
He sat iu this attitude for perhaps half an
hour, when he suddenly jumped up with a
peculiar yell of exultation, and started for
one corner of the field, going about three
feet from the fence the first time, about six
feet the second, and thus continuing to near
the middle at each succeeding circle. He
went around the field about twenty times,
when he jumped up into the air with a Iou 1
yell of triumph, picked up the handkerchief.
and started for home.
The veracity of this narrative may be re
lied upon. We received it from Mr. F , a
Baptist clergyman of great respectability.
Now, did the dog reason mathematically ?

DISCOVERED TOO LATE.
It is a pleasant Summer afternoon. G roups
of citizens are standing together in the mar
ket place of the old Belgian town of An
twerp, and around a large building which
appears to possess for them some extraordi
nary attraction. The building is the town
hall, and the day is the day of the trial of
Leopold Wintzer and Charlotte Lutzen, lor
the murder of Maria, Countess Estcvan, by
"It will go hard with the miscreants, I
warrant me," says a stout burgher, in the
centre of the group, by which he seems
reckoned a personage of vast importance ;
"and rightly enough too, I say, for we want
no poisoning conjurers in this fair city, neigh
bors." " Yon are in the right of it, Master Van
Noorden," replied another wiseacre, and the
mob, easily swayed, murmured their assent."
"I would I had the basting of that old
witch," shrilly exclaimed a stout, rosy cheek
ed dame, with a pair of large ear rings sau
cily displayed. "I would not let them lack
basting I know."
A sally of laughter greeted this pretty
display of woman's spite, and a loud hearty
voice cried out :
" Ay, trust a woman to run a woman
down if she be in trouble. They say wolves
will cat a wounded comrade ; but, for my
own part, I think the spite of wild beasts is
nothing to the spite of woman against wo
man." The dame who had spoken turned angrily
towards the last bold speaker, and he would
mayhap have come off with a scratched face,
but for a loud shout from that part of the
crowd nearest the hall, which signified that
the trial was over.
" The sentence! the sentence! Arc they
guilty?" cried a thousand voices.
"Yes, yes, guilty 1"
" And the sentence ?"
" The man to be burnt alive ; the woman
to be confined for life."
"Hurrah! hurrah!" and the air rang
with a cheer from the whole of the vast mul
titude, which speediby turned to a storm of
hisses and groaus as the unfortunate con
demned issued from the door of the judg
ment hall, stronqrly guarded.
The trial had been short, but the evidence
was supposed conclusive.
Thii is what had passed.
The respected Dr. Fruchen had testified
that he had been called in suddenly on the
last da' of July to attend a lady who was
taken ill. and was at the house of the male
prisoner. lie had inquired -for a suitable
nurse for her, and was exceedingly struck by
the readiness with which the female prisoner
volunteered to fill that situation.. He had
sent iu two draughts, being simply ano
dynes, but quite harmless ; after taking one
of which the unfortunate lady was found
dead. That she had taken the dose there
was no doubt, as the almost empty bottle
was found with but a few drops left in it,
which when tested by himself, (Ilerr Fruch
en.) were found to contain aquafortis. The
second bottle, with its contents untouched,
was also found to contain the same poison.
From this it was inferred, that, had the first
not taken effect, the murderers intended to
administer a second dose. "Perhaps,"
added the doctor, " as there couJd be little
doubt that the first draught would prove
fatal, the second might have been intended
for Don Estevan."
It was distinctly proved that the sole in
habitants of the house where the alleged
murder took place, besides the luckless cou
ple, were Leopold Wintzer and Charlotte
Lutzen ; and the quantity of gold contained
in the valises of both the unfortunate lady
and gentleman supplied ample motive fir
their murder by a man so well known to be
avaricious and miserly as Wintzer.
The latter was a singular character, but
one common enough in the age in which
these events happened. He was half a sci
entific investigator andhalf an impostor.
He studied nature and imposed upon man,
fancying that his superior knowledge gave
him the right to deceive his follow creatures.
By those who lived near him, or came in
contact with him, he was looked' upon with
some respect and a good deal of dread. lie
was known everywhere as a necromancer
as one who dealt with awful mysteries for
awful purposes. His manner, his dress, his
gloomy house, his laboratory, the curious
animals from far off countries with which
he surrounded himself, his cultivation of
strange plants, were, in the minds of the
vulgar, only so many proofs of his dealing
with the power of darkness.
On the night of the murder the necro
mancer had, by his own admission, aqua
fortis in his possession. Further, he con
fessed that, contrary to his usual habit, he
sat up all the night In the morning the
aquafortis was missing, and loth the l-ottlc s
destined for the unfortunate lady were prov
en to have contained it. Then the female
prisoner admitted that twice during the
night she went into the laboratory to her
master, (although she averred that the last
time he was fast asleep,) and as she also ad
mits that her hand placed the first bottle on
the deceased's table, it was inferred that the
master consulted with the servant, prepared
the poison, and then left it to the old woman
to administer, for consideration of part of
the gold to be acquired. Thus she became
an accomplice. This evidence was deemed
conclusive and the judges were united in
condemning the prisoners." ' Thus the old
nuin was sentenced to be burned alive in the
market place, and his ashes' to be. scattered
to the four. winds; and the old woman, in
consideration of her age and sex, besides
tent made a tool of, was awarded the miti
gated punishment of imprisonment for life.
Within a week the horrible sentence on
the poor old man was carried out in all its
awful details, he to the last protesting his
innocence. Indeed, from the time of the
murder until he was actually tied to the
stake, he ppoke and acted like one under the
influence of a dream. But the populace
were under another impression. They fully
believed him guilt-, and when he was bro't
out to death, behaved in a savage manner,
that moved the aged victim to tears. He
died confessing that he had been guilty of
many wicked, impious impostures, but sol
emnly called heaven to witness that he was
guiltless of the foul crime of murder.
Dame Charlotte, as soon as she heard that
her poor old master was actually dead, fell
into a swoon which lasted eight-and-twenty
hours, and upon her recovery from it, it was
found that the poor creature's mind had
given waj Her sentence was then partially
revoked, and as the old necromancer had
left no will, and his money was confiscated
to the State, the town council allowed tlr
poor old woman (who was harmless) to oc
cupy her late master's house, under the care
of a middle-aired female named Grctchen as.
her attendant. To this house then, about
three months from Ihe beginning of our sto
ry, the two women repaired.
On the very first night of their occupation
of the old dwelling, the old dame and her
attendant set in the kitchen, where three
months back the worthy housekeeper had
consequentially attended to the basting of
the fowl which was to be Donna Estcvan's
last meal on earth. Perhaps even across her
weakened intellect there dawned some faint
recollection of this, for she sat sorrowfully
in her chair looking vacantl' at the wood
fire, and watching the smoke curl slowly up
the broad, old-fashioned chimney. Her
friendly attendant was busy preparing cups
and saucers for their early tea, and stole a
glance now and then at the poor soulless suf
ferer. At last Dame Charlotte broke the
"Grctchen, was I ever here before?"
Willing to soothe her, Grctchen replied
"No, no, dame; why should you hink
that ? This is the house iven you by your
good council, you know."
"Council, council!" repeated Charlotte,
"Ay, dame! but come draw and drink
this hot cup of coffee, it will cheer you finely,
I warrant me." And worth Gretchen
commenced cutting bread and butter. They
had nearly finished their meal when a sud
den noise caused both to look up, and
Grctchen screamed aloud. Not so the elder
woman; she looked on as if lody and soul
were about to part ; with all her faculties
(such as they were) fixed on an object in an
obscure corner of the old kitchen.
Breaking up a Setting Hen.
"Timothy, that air yaller hen's settin'
agin," said Mrs. Hayes to her son, one morn
ing at breakfast.
"Well, let her set," remarked Timothy,
helping himself to a large piece of cheese,
"I reckon 1 can stand it as long as she can."
"I do wish you would try to be a little
equiiioniical to cheese, Timothy ; I've cut the
very la-t of my ever- day lot, and its only
the first of May. And now as soon as you've
done eating I want you to go out and break
up that hen. She's setting on an old ax and
two bricks now."
" I hope she'll hatch 'em" returned Timo
thy. " If she set now, she'd hatch the fourth
week in May. It's a bad sign ; something
aliens happens arter it. Stop giggling, Hel
en Maria, by the time you get to be as old
as yer ma, ye'll see further than you do now.
There was Jcnkin's folks, their grey top-knot
hatched the last of May. and Mrs. Jenkins,
she had the conjunction of the lungs, and
would have died if they hadn't killed a lamb
and wrapped her in the hide while its warm.
That was all that saved her."
With such a startling proof of the truth
and the omen before him, Timothy finished
his breakfast in haste and departed for the
barn, from which he soon returned bearing
the squalling biddy by the legs.
"What shall I do with her, mother?
She'll get on again, and she's cross as bed
lam she skinned my hands, and would be
the death of me if she could get loose."
"I've heer'n it said that it was a good
plan to throw 'cm up in the air," said Mrs.
Hayes. "Aunt Peggy broke one of setting
only three times trying. Spose'n you try it."
" Up she goes, head or tail !" cried Tim,
as he tosed the volcano skyward.
" Laud-o-m.T5y," exclaimed Mrs. H. '.-he's
coming down in the pan of bread that I set
out on the great rock to rise ! Tim, it's
strange that you can't do nothing without
"Down with the traitors, up with th-j
stars," sang out Tim, elevating biddy again
with something less than a pint of batter
hanging to her feet
"Good gracious me, wuss and wuss,"
cried Mrs. Hayes, and Tim agreed with her,
for the hen had come down on the well-polished
tile of Esquire Bennett, who happen
ed to be passing, and the dignified old gen
tleman was th e father ot Cynthia Bennett,
the young lady with whom Tim was serious
The Squire looked daggers, brushed off
the dough with his handkerchief, and strode
on in silence. .
"Yes, but it's going tip again," said Tim,
spitefully seizing the clucking biddy and toss
ing her at random into the air. Biddy
ty, and with a loud scream she darted against
the parlor window, broke through, knocked
down the canaiy cage, and landed plump in
the silken lap of Mrs. Gray, who was board
ing at the farm house.
Mrs. Gray screamed with horror,and start
ing up, dislodged biddy, who flew at her re
flection in the looking glass with an angry
hiss. The glass was shattered and down
came the hen, astonished beyond measure,
against a vase of flowers, which upset, and
in falling knocked over the stand-dish and
deluged with water a pair of drab colored
velvet slippers which Helen Maria was em
broidering for her love, Mr. James Ilen-
Helen entered the room just as the mis
chief had been done, and viewing the ruin,
she at once laid it to her brother Timothy.
She heard his step behind her, and the un
fortunate hen she flung full into his face.
There was a smothered oath, and the hen
came back with the force of a twenty-pound "
Helen was mad. Her eyes were nearly
put out with the feathered dust and dough,
and she went at Timothy with a true femi
nine zeal. She broke his watch-guard in a
dozen pieces, crushed his dickey and began
to pull his whiskers out by the roots, when
suddenly she remembered that Timothy had
no whiskers to pull out by the roots.
But when Bhe came to look closer, she
perceived that the man she had nearly an
nihilated was not Timothy, but James Hen
shaw. Poor Helen bun t into tears and fled into
ner chamber, the usual refuge for heroines;
and James, after washing his face at the
kitchen sink, went home, sternly resolved
never to marrv a woman with such a tem
per r.s Helen Hayes had.
The hen, meanwhile, who is the heroine,
returned to the barn to establish herself on
the ruin of her nest, determined 'to set if
the heavens folk
Mrs. Hayes soon discovered her, and she
having heard that dipping in water would
cure "broodiness," she set forth for the
brock with fowl in her apron.
Mrs. Weaver, an old lady of very quarrel
some temperament, who resided near, and
was at a sword's point with Mrs. Hayes,
wa,s just coming to the brook for a pail of -water,
and spied the yellow head of the bird
peeping out from Mrs. Hayes' apron.
'There," she exclaimed, "now I hava
found out what puzzled me to death nigh
about a week. I've found out where that
yellow pullet has gone to. Mrs. Hayes, I
allars knowed -ou was a wicked, desatcful
woman, but I didn't think you'd steal."
"Steal? me steal? who are 5'ou talking to
Mrs. Weaver?" said Mrs. Hayc?, on her
"I'm talking to you, madam, that's who
I'm talking to! You've stolen- my hen
what I got over to Uncle Gillies, and paid
for in sassengers. She is the real Dorking.
Give her to me right here or I'll use force.
"She's my hen, and you touch her if you
"I'll show you what I dare!" yelled Mrs.
Weaver, growing purple, and seizing the
ill-starred fowl by the tail, she gave a wrench
and the tail came out in her hand.
The sudden cessation of resistance upset
Mrs. Weaver's balance, and fche fell back
ward into the brook, spattering the mud
and astonished polliwogs in every direction. ' -
She was a spry woman, and was soon on
her feet again, ready to renew the assault
"Give me my hen !" she cried, thrusting
her fist into Mrs. Haves' face, "you old h
and hypocrite you !" and she made a second
dive at the bird.
The hen thought it proper to show her
colors, and uttering an unearthly yell, she
flew out of the covert square into the face
of Mrs. Weaver, which the raked down
with her nails until it resembled the pages
of a ledger, crossed and rccrossed with red
Mrs. Hayes caught a slick of brush-wood
from the fence Mrs. Weaver did the same,
an I a regular duel would probably have been,
fought if the bank of the crock had not
suddenly gave way and precipitated both
the indignant women into the water.
They scrambled out on opposite sides, and
the hen sat perched in an apple tree and
cackled in triumph.
Tke ladies shook themselves and by con
sent went home. They have not spoken
The hen disappeared and was not seen
until three weeks afterwards, when she
made her appearance with eleven nice yel
low chickens. She found some other fowl's
nest and had set in spite of fate.
But although not "broken up" herself,
she broke up to matches for Cynthia Ben
nett was not at home the next time Timothy
called, and Mr. Ileushaw never forgave
Helen for having such a temper.
A Cnoss Woman. The idea of a woman
getting cross and ugly when things in the
family do not run quite as smoothly as they
should, is simply ridiculous. She makes
herself an object of loathing and contempt
whenever she is guilty of such nonsense.
The Almighty has created her for a purposo
entirely different to this insane and foolish
indulgence in angry passions. He has niado
her beautiful and attractive in her person,
endowed her with sensibilities and refine
ments of mind and manner which, when
properly cultivated, lead to the elevation of
the higher and holier feelings of nature.
Think of being thus constituted getting cros3
on every trifling occasion. How the insults
her Creator, and prostitutes those excellent
qualities which the stern sex do not possess,
and w hich seem to be reserved by heaven for
her alone. Think of this, fair woman, when
ever the devil tempts you to sin. You may
forfeit all within your grasp ; worldly happi
ness, personal esteem, domestio felicity, that
peace of mind which arises from a conscious
ness of duty well and faithfully performed,
and what is more than all, you may forfeit
the favor of your God.
