"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.

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. A Romantic Story. We take the following from the New York correspondence of the Albany Argus : A romantic affair occurred in Drooktyn a short time ago. A handsome orphan work girl, !Mary Elizabeth 15., lived comfortably on the fruit of her honest labor, and had for 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 ?

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 poison. "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 silence. "Grctchen, was I ever here before?" Willing to soothe her, Grctchen replied readily : "No, no, dame; why should you hink that ? This is the house iven you by your good council, you know." "Council, council!" repeated Charlotte, vacantly. "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 overdoing it" "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 ly enamored. 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- shaw. 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 " shot. 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 dignity. "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 dare!" "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 ink. 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 sinf,e. 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.
