and two soldiers entered. Repeating the name of

taken their proper Jistances, and only waited the
word of command from the Emperor, who was
stationed at a window commanding a view of the

LUCK IS EVERY THING.
By JOSEPH R. CHANDLER.
The .course of true love, it is said, did never yet
run smooth ; and those who have had experience
on that turnpike of theaffections, or rather railroad,
as it is soon run over, bear testimony to the jolts,
"running off," and washings up alive, of all which
the poets speak. We have no great, taste, in this
time of politics and perplexities, to dabble in " fan
cy stocks," and risk our reputation for gravity ; yet
the illustration-of an aphorism of admitted truth,
may be considered seasonable, and the moral de
duced from the , illustration may compensate some
for the, trouble of reading. it.
In the year 1814—we remember the thee - well,
because a part of the incidents of the story were
connected with a great event, an event not likely
to be forgotten—well, in the year 1814 a young
man, who to a visionary , mind, and a consequent
want of employment, added - a most desperate af
fection form young lady, quite too good for him, if
business pursuits were alone considered, but just
his match, if confiding affection, purity of mind, and ,
innocence of purpose, are the reward' of large en
dowments, strict integrity, and . desire fur honest,
competence, without the means of obtaining it.
There was no more pleasing young man in the
thriving village than Henry 'Bradford ' and every
body agreed with his
,neightiors, that he was the
most agreeable person and the beid educated aboUt.
But he didoot Study law, he despised medicine and
did not tak to the church ; he had frequently
thought of "Meicluindixe," but that required a cap
ital, which he could-not raise, and so he did not-go
ahead though he was forever on the brink of- simile
wonderful success, which he certainly would have
secured, if he had only entered upon the ehter
Mary Carver evident'' loved Henry Bradford ;
for „knowing that, excep t i n g his handsome trots;
pleasing manners and good character , he ha noth
ing to offer, she would not have been deaf the
offers of so many young men, whose character and
position rendered them desirable to the hinny.—
wu.e offers were repeated so often, and hints so
strong were given to Mr. and Mrs. Carver' that it
was deemed proper after a serious deliberation in
cabinet council, to - admonish their daughter that
Henry was in no business, and was not likely to be
in a way to maintain a family.
Mrs_ Carver opened _the. _ dinlornacx Atith. the
daughter, and, alter two orthree conierenms, rec
treated under the laugh of Mary, who dechmxl that
sheclid not doubt that Henry would one day be
rich enough to take care of bidh, for be hell a dream
that he should be. Mrs. Carver had no disposition
to laugh in such a serious , mission , anddesire to
be angry with her daughter. .
Mary, however, knew that when her father came
to negotiate, she would have to use othererguments
than laughter, and therefore she admonished Heir
ry of the approaching storm. Henry thought of it
two or three days, an unusual time for him to de
vote to any thing like his personal aifaits.
At length the family was honored l a formal ,
offer from a clergyman in a neigh town. He 1
an offer was not to be alightecl_-...4.-..nerke.-
ed. Old Mr. Carver took the subject ton heart, and
Mrs. Carver gave 'her sheer muslin a double clear
starching upon the very idea of her becoming moth
er-in-law'to a minister. Mary pondered these things
in her heart. She saw the improbability of Henry's
ever attaining a situation that would Warrant mat
rimony,. She was listening to her mott i e s r's account
of his want of application to business, apparent
disregard of attwning.competence, and of his utter
lack of what is called common sense ; and the old
ladv concluded her homily with a remark, that she
believed Henry Bradford' would think more of a
dream of wealth twice repeated, thant of the best
prospects that ever presented for business prefer
“ Mother," said Mary, " Henry is not alool."
"No," said Mrs. Carver, hesitatinglY, " be is not
a fool, certainly."

Mary made no answer, for she was a little mor
tified at the ludicrous turn which her Mother had
given to Henry's rather dreamy proposition, though
she had never heard him build any aistles in the
air out of any such materials.
Henry came with his usual pleasant humor, and
sat down by Mary, and, after a few words, he per
ceived that something was wrong.- ! -
" Mary," said he, " have you been reading the
Sorrows of Wordier r

" Why,-fast Sunday night I dreamed that--"

pass away for the prize to be paid ; but he said
nothing to Mr. Carver. .

A Yank ee trick on a Hoosier landlord.;
In a quiet little Ohio villne, inany years r•ga.,
there was a tavern where the stages always Awry
ed, and the passengers ezpeeted to get bnokfaft.--
The landlord of Said hotel was noted far his t 'neicir
upon travellers, who were allowed to gety
a:o4a the table, when , the driver would t
his horn (after taking his "horns ") and sing ou t,
"Stage ready, gentlemen," 'whereupon the ii
gerstwere obliged to hurry out and take their Seats,
learn a scarcely tasted- breakfast behind them,
for which, however, they had to fork over ififty
centh! One •day when the stage was ap
the house of this obliging best, a passenger said
thatl he had often hea rd of the landlord's tri and
he rt-as afraid they would not be able to any
breakfast, ' , 1
" What I—how I No breakfast r exclaimed the
" Exactly ea, gents, and you may as well :eep
your seats and tan."
"Don't they eXpect passengers to breakfast • ;
"Oh, yes! they expect you to it, but.not ti eat
it. lam under the impression that there is un
derstanding between the landlord and driver,lthat,
for sundry - and Various drinks, eta, the latter starts
before you can scarcely commence eating."
" Why, what on airth are you talkin' about Ef
you calkelate Iwo gain' . to pay ' four nine '
fur my breakfast and not get the cake illek ou're
mistakin'!" said' a voice from the back seat, the
owner of which lwas ono lfesekiah Spaulding--tho'
"few hum" they call him" Hex" for short. "I'm
go& to get my breakfast here, and not pay nary
red tilll do." I
"Then you'll be left.' _ 1
" Not as you knows on, I wont!" I ,
" Well, we'll nee," said the other, as the Stage
dove up to the door, and the landlord, ready to
"do the hospitable," says— 1
"Breakfast just ready, gents! Take a wash,
pats! Here!srwater basins, towels, and soap."
After perforating their ablutions, thty all pie

onslaught upon !the edibles, though "Has" , . his

they heard the ;unwelcome sound of the ham, and
