Ono line day, early in winter, my Ito-band
received a stonmen's to Burke's settlement
to unite a couple in the bonds of wedlock.—
It was specially requested that his wife
should accompany him—that we should be
expected to remain all night and participate
in the festivities. ft was twenty miles to
the settlement, and we reached the log
helve of Mr. Burke, the father of the ex.
peetant bride, about noon. A dozen tow.
haired Litt'': children were at the door await
in:s. our arrival. They telegraphed the news
inq n !y.
! here's the preacher anti
his woman ! '1 Imuy're nothing but folks !
i m p's got a man's hat on, and a turkey wing
on the hunt of it ; and his nose is exactly
like dad's- s.rooked min cow,horn sqnueh,!'
Ala- for Mr. Morrison's aquiline nose, of

shill female vela,, from the interior of the
cabin. Too and grab the old rooster, and ;

wife and ire spry about it. Further remarks
were cut short by our entrance.
Mrs. Burke, in short calico gown, blue
petticoat and bare feet, came forward wi ll) .

my head ; hain't had a chance to comb it
since 13.1 week. Work must be done you

Bill presented his shaggy head, but 1 de
eliucil with an involuntary shudder. 'Land

take this corn dodger into your lap—its as
good as n soap stone.' A drundfull squall
announced the execution of the rooster, and
shortly afterward he was pouncing about in
a four quart pot, hung over the fire.
Sal returned to the churn, but the extra
ordinary-visitors must have made her care
les, for she upset the concern ; butter and
buttermilk went swimming ever time floor.—
'Grab the ladle, Bill erica Dirs. Btwke,

dinner was ready, You may be sure I did
not hurt myself by overeating. Night came
on early, and after a social ehaton the events
of the morrow, I 'signified my readiness to
retire. Sal lighted a pitch pine knot, and
began to climb a ladder in one corner of the
room. I hesitated. 'Coma on,' she cried,
'don't he afraid. Ham, Bill, and Dick, and
all the rest of ye, duck yer heads while the
Elder's wife goes up. Look out for Moose
boards, mann, and mind or you'll smash
your brains out agin that beam, Take care
for the hole where the chimney comes thro.'
The warning came too late, I caught my foot
in the end of aboard, stumbled and fell
head:ong through, what I supposed to be an
interminable space, but it was only the room
I had just left, where I was saved from de
struction by Bill, who caught me in hie
arms and set me on my feet, remarking
'what made yereome down that way ?
We ginerally use the ladder.' I was duly
commiserated, and at last got to bed. The
les.s said about that the better. Dick and
Bill and four others slept in the same room
with us and made the air vocal With their
snoring. 1 full asleep and dreamed that I
was being tired from a Columbiad, and was
awakened b 3 Mr. Morrison, who intimmed
use that it was morning. The marriage was
to take place before breakfast, and Sally was
already clad in her bridal robes when I de
scended the ladder. She was magnificent
in a green calico gown, over crinoline full
four inches longer than the rest of her ap
parel. She had on a white apron with red
strings—blue stockings—a yellow neck rib
-bon and white gloves. Her reddish hair ,
was fastened in a pug behind, and well
adorned with the tail Heathers of the defunct
rooster before mentioned. When it was an•
nounced that Lem. Lord, the groom, was
coming, Sally dived behind a coverlet, which
had been hung aerussone corner or the room
to conceal sundry pots and refused to come
forth. Lens lifted one corner the curtain
and peeped in, but quickly , retreated with a
stew pan following close behind him and a ,
few sharp words from Sally, advising him
to mind his own business.

Lein was dressed hi blue with bright but

his grandfather on a similar occassion. II is
hair was well greased with tallow, and his
huge feet was encased in sheepskin pumps.
Very soon the company began to gather and
in half an hour the room was full to over
'Now Elder,' said the groom, 'drive

Burke trot out your gal. Sally refused to
be trotted. She would be married where
she was or else, not be married at all. We
argued the case with her and coaxed ber,
but she was as Gra] as the rock of I ibrallter.
It was at length concluded to let her have
her own way. Mr. Morrison stood up. The
happy couple joined hands through a rent
in the coverlet, and the ceremony proceed
ed. Just as 31r. Morrison was asking Lem
uel 'will you have this woman,' etc., down
came the coverlet enveloping the bride,
groom and pastor, and filling the house with
dust. Dick had been up in the loft and cut
the string that held thecoverlet. Mr. Mor
rison crowded out, looking decidedly sheep
ish. Sally was obliged to be married open
ly. To the momentous question, Lemuel
responded: 'To be sure, what chic did I
come here for ?' Sally said : 'Yeas, if' you
must know.' Salute your bride,' said Mr.
Morrison, when the ceremony was over.
'I in ready to do anything reasonable, El
der,' said Lein., 'but skin me it' I know how
to do that. Jest show me how, and I'll do
it if it kills me.'
My husband drew Lack nervously, but
Sally advanced, threw her arms around his
neck, and gave him a kiss that made the
very windows clatter. `ll. vum if I don't do
ditto l' said Lem, and hastily taking a
huge bite of a piece of maple sugar, which
he drew from his pocket, he made a dash at
me, smashed my collar, broke my watch
pliant tore my hair deism, and succeeded in
planting a kiss upon my nose, greatly to the
delight of the company. Then he turned
to my husband : 'Now, Elder, what's the
damage for this ere job ? Don't be afeard
to speak.' 'Whatever you please,' said Mr.
Morrison. Lemuel produced a piece of fur
from his pocket. 'Thar, Elder,' said he,
'that's a muskrat skin. Out on the shed
you will find two heads of cabbage. You
are welcome to the whole of' it. My hus
band bowed his thanks and the young folks
went to dancing.
Mrs. Burke went to getting breakfast,
and at my earnest- request,_ •Mr. Morrison
got out our horse and buggy and we started
home. I never could have lived through
another meal in that house. I have since
heard that Mr. Lord said if he had seen the
Elder's wife before she was married, Sully
might have went to the Dickens. Alas! 'it
might have ken.'
On Saturday evening of lust week,
when the congregation of ono of the up
town churches were leaving the house, it
commenced raining. The lady said to the
gentleman who accompanied her and her
:sister, "why, it rains—send and get an um
brella.% "Why, my dear," said the gen
tleman, "you are neither sugar nor salt, and
rain will nut hurt you." "No," said the
lady, "but we are heave It is needless to

Queen Victoria and Mr. Brown.
London is the center of England. The
Queen is the center of London. Her prem.
coca is the light of the aristocracy—her ab.
soneo their sorrow. lier going out and
coining in—her down sitting and uprising—
when and whore she walks or rides—how
she dresses—to whom she speaks—who at
tends her—aro carefully noted and greedily
read. After thirty years of a model domes
tic life, with her domestic fume traveling
rotted the globe, and herself the idol of the
British public, an American is astonished to
find the London atmosphere full of scandal;
the name of the highest lady in the land
connected with one of her lowest subjects;
the names of the "Queen and Mr. Brown"
on the lips of all classes, from the rag-pick
er in the streets to the peer in the realm.
The Queen is seldom seen in London. She
flits buck and forth front Windsor Castle
only to meet the duties of State. She sel
dom sleeps at Buckingham Palace, her own
town residence. She likes the retreat at
Windsor, and lives near the room where
the Prince Consort breathed his last. The
solitude of the Isle of Wight is a favorite
with her, for she can ride twenty miles in
her own dominion without being seen.
Among the Highlands at Balmoral she lays
oT the Queen and plays the woman. Driv
ing around in a low wheeled carriage to
which is attached a runt of a pony, she vis
its the sick, the infirm, and the poor. Her
carriage is loaded with comforts which she
distributes with her own band. Her com
ing to any house is a benediction. All this
the Londoners dislike. They pay for the
pomp and the show of royalty, and they
want it. They give the Queen live thousand
dollars a day in gold. They furnish the
palace, her state carriages and her hundred
horses, the plate for royal banquets, and
also pay for the entertainment of all royal
guests. Her refusal to join in the gayetiesof
life—the closing of the palaces and her re
fusal to play the Queen deeply offend the.
Londoners. It harms trade, they say, and
the sufferings of the poor for the want of
employment are laid at the Queen's door.
Her ministers have pleaded with her to
meet the public demand. Punch has lam
pooned her with his must effective sarcasm.
A less worthy retirement is now attribute.]
to the Queen than grief for the Prince Con
sort. In print and in speech she is neensci
of being in love with Mr. Brown• It is
openly said that she has transferred her sr-
feetion for the Prince Consort to this gentle• I
Mr. Brown is the Queen's confidential ser
vant. Her majesty found hint at Balmoral.
On visit to that castle after she became a wid
ow she found a servant silent,sad and obsequi
ous, very attentive, very efficient, a man
who seldom spoke a word. On inquiry she
found that the man had been a servaot long
in the employ of Prince Albert. Ile en
joyed the confidence of the Prince. Ilis
mounting fur his late master was the talk of
the castle. The Queen took him at once
into her employ, and it is said into her af
fection. Being a Highlander, he came into
the presence of Her Majesty in full custome,
that is, with hare legs, to the great scandal
of the full dressed lackeys of the palace.
From step to step Brown went up till he
has become the prime minister of the
Queen's household. All her orders go
through him. llis body-guard are High
landers also, and the old fend between the
Scotch and the English is revived in the
Queen's presence. All sorts of stories were
started and are still in circulation. At one
time it was repotted that she would marry
Brown if she had to abdicate. The Queen
is known to he a spiritualist, upon which it
is said that she believes the spirit of Prince
Albert to be in this man. All i 'possible in
fluences have been brought to bear to re
move him from the Queen's service. She
is well aware of the scandal connecting her
name with Brown's, but she will not yield
one jot. To the impassioned expostulation
of her ministers she replied byan imperious
wave of her hand, which induced the minis
ters to back out and depart,.
Wherever you will find the Queen there
you will find Brown. He is a shrewd
&etchum, who knows that there is no
power behind the throne that can touch him.
He is a coarse, common-looking sort of a
fellow with iron•grey hair. He is about
fifty years of age, nervous and wiry, with
quite a stoop in his gait; coarse, hard fea
tures, which make him look like a collier or
ditcher dressed up, and quite uncomfortable
in his nice clothes. He is about as unat
tractive-looking a person as any day-laborer
about our warves. He is nervous, buisy,
uteddleion4 4 but be attends strictly to his
duties. ITo seems to know nothing, and
certainly seems to care nothing for the de
testation in which he is held by the servants
of the Queen, and the nation at large.
The opening of the Royal Academy at
London for the season is a great event. The
aristocracy attend the opening. An extra
charge is wade the first day, and all London
goes because there is a jaw. At the open
ing in May last a genuine sensation was pro

black horse, and is represented as reading a
despatch, while a atter fallen from her hand
lies on the mound. In the Aground, at
the head of her horse, mantle the noted
Babwn, as complete a likeness as was ever
drawn of mortal man. He is represented
in his Highland costume. He was put in
the prominent position that be occupies, it
is said, by order of the Queen. I was
present when the Academy wax opened and
this picture first exhibited. The room in
which it hangs wan crowded with the nobil
ity and the elite or London. It was known
that a grand likeness of the Queen was to
be the lending feature of the Exhibition.
All were on tip -too to behold this great work
of art. But no ono knew that Mr. Brown
was to be exhibited alho. When the cur
tain was rolled up there was an insensible
howl of indignation. Sonic ladies actually
covered their faces. ''lt's Brown I it's
Brown I whet a shame I" was heard all
round. Threats were made to cut Brown's
head out of the canvas, and it will be done
if the people have a chance. Crowds Fur
rounded the picture all the time, as people
will look at a disagreeable object, and this
picture is highly offensive to the Queen's
The Queen can have no society. No sub
jeet can speak to her without her permission.
She is as isolated as the statue of Nelson on
the top of the column at Trafalgar Square.
On the death of the Prince who had done
all the business of the State, she found her
self alone with the kingdom and an im
mense household to take care of. She could
get nothing done. Her orders had to rdn
through a dozen or twenty hands. The
royal servants have a routine out of which
they will not go even for the Queen. It
takes about twenty to do one man's work.
The servant who opens one door will not
open the next. The one who brings a pitch
er of water will not fill the glass. The
Queen timid in Brown a prompt, able and
attentive servant. She gave hint full charge
of her domestic arrangements. 11' she
wishes to rid° or walk, have a carriage or
have a railroad train, her orders go through
Brown. He is attentive and obsequious,
but is an excellent business man. One of
the Queen's characteristics is promptness.
She exacts this of her servants, and Brown
meets this exactly. lie attends the Queen
in all her journeys. Ile presides over that
portion of Wilelsor Castle appropriated as
the Queen's residence• Into it nom of the
royal servants enter without his permission.
Ile has more influence over the Queen than
any living man in the Kingdom, and he will
hold his position as long as the Queen holds
hers. But he is thoroughly detested by all
the household. Little he cares for that.
The coining and going of the Queen from
Windsor is heralded in the court papers.
All London goes to see the arrival or de
parture. She has a special train to her
self. A right royal train it is. It consists
of three coaches, an engine elegantly adorn
ed, and a pilot engine runs before. Nothing
is allowed on the track while the royal train
is running tn or out. Twenty minutes be
fore the train leaves London nothing is al
lowed to start from Windsor. Nothing
leaves London till the signals is given that
the Queen has reached the royal station at
her cantle. It costs the Queen 5509 for the
round trip, which she pays out of her own
pocket, every time the train runs from
Windsor to London and hack. Over this
train Mr. Brown exercises supreme control.
In the presence of hundreds of people who
gather in and about the station to witness
the royal sight, Brown enters the middle
coach to be occupied by his royal mistress,
and examines everything, to see if it is all
right. He stands on the crimson carpet
stretching from the outer door to the Queen's
coach. Ho looks steadily into the eyes of
the crowd, who aro kept back by the rail
ing and by the police, and does so with the
look of a servant of the lower class, yet
with as shrewd and "canny" a look as any
Scotchman who over crossed the border.
His quick ear catches the sound of the ad
vancing cortege. The Queen's train starts
at halt' after five. It is twenty-seven minutes
after five and Her Majesty has not appear
ed. Said the officer who stood beside me on
the crimson carpet, in answer to my question,
"Is not the Queen late?" "Do you see that
clock? It is now twenty nine minutes past •
five. In half a minute those doors will
open, the Queedwill enter, take her seat,
the whistle will sound and the train he in
motion half after precisely." Sore enough,
at the exact moment mentioned the doors
were thrown open and the Queen, beaded
by Brown, entered. A short, thick-set,
German-looking woman she was, dressed
wholly in black, followed by her younger
children and the ladies of her household.
She walked with a sharp, imperious tread,
looking neither to the right nor to the left.
Brown handed her into the coach. The
doors went to with a slam. Brown gave
the signal and disappeared= in one of the
apartments. The train moved on the exact
minute, amid fainteheers to the Queen, and
loud execrationiiin "Brown."

Death o Iri#tdeh •,
Richard Oreenwell, residing at Seaford,
gel., committed suicide at that place on
Thursday, by throwing himself into the riv
or. Oreenwell was known as one of tho
men implicated in the forcible entrance into
the jail of that place, and the taking there
from ono James Wilson, a negro who WAR
arrested, imprisoned and awaiting trial for
the murder of a girl, and hanging him in
the roar of the jail yard. After he was
hnng, shot and throat cut, Oreenwell, who
was a butcher, cut and carved him as though
he were beef, and then roasted and burnt
the pieces to ashes. He reserved the right
band of the negro and carried it home with
Hut what a change has taken place. Since
then the fearful judgment of the Almight;
seems to have visited him on all occasions.
About a year after this transaction ho lost
his wife by the most agonizing of deaths—
that of burning. Since the death of his
wife Greenwell lost his right hand by the
cars passing over it. On several occasions
be came near losing his life by being thrown
from his carriage, two or three times being
taken up as dead. Finally, on Thursday,
he remarked to smile person that "Hod Al
mighty would not kill him, and lie would go
and drown himself," which he did.
Ile was an Englishmen by birth, and was
said to have been a desperate character be-

made him, contending that Wind chance

Poughkeepsie Eagle tells a story about a
clergyman in that city who was recently
aroused from his slumbers, a few moments
before midnight, by a vigorous tapping at
the front window of his residence. Raising
t h e window sash, he inquired who was there.
A gruff voice replied in the broken dialect
of a Yorkshireman, that ho wanted the do
minie to come down to his house and marry
a couple. The dominie wondered that ho
should be called on such business, at such a
late hour of the night, and asked for an ex
planation. The Yorkshireman replied that
"a young couple had just arrived at his
boarding-house and wanted to stay all night,
saying that they were going to be married in
the morning.
That was all well enough but the York
shireman didn't have only one spare bed,
and he didn't wish to turn the strangers out
of doors and didn't wish to lose the price of
their lodgings, he concluded that they had
hatter be married that night rather than
take any risk. The good natured dominio
proceeded to the house, and in the pronnee
of the household made the lovers one. At
the conclusion of the ceremony the York
ehiremen stepped up to the reverend gen
tleman and placed a five dollar greenback
in his hand, said : "There, dominie, if she
makes a good wife for her husband ut the
end of the year I'll give you five dollars
more." The dominie returned to his par
sonage, and the newly married couple were
allowed the "spare room."

how much time ho had to read in, seven

would be 2,555 hours, which at the rate of
eight reading hours per day, would be equal
to three hundred and ten days ; equal to
forty-five weeks', equal to twelve months,
