an expatiso of Water .in this place, hitt as I.
learned froni the Kentuckian, who was-an old
pilot, and acquainted with every foot of water
in the river, the - Channel here was very devious
-and-dangerous. The captain came to the Ken,7
I tuchlan's side with a flushed cheek and,asked
'What Jo you thinker it, Sint - Oen?'"
'lll had the strength of my namesake,' re
irentuckian, 'l'd swim out and chUck

'Rentuck,' called out Rogers from the wheel
house, 'just stop here a moment—you know the
channel better than I do-1 wonder`what those
rascals mean.'
The meaning seemed to be to my eye a" re
solve to run us down—the smoke ascended
black and sulphury from her chimneys, with oc
casional flashes of volcanic fire, that showed
she hild all the steam on possible. She gained
on us evidently, while the excited crowd on
her hurricane deck and guards repeatedly hur
ried, as by the orders of the mate- they step

The noise they:made. and-their evident ap

'for we had all steam on too, so alarmed the la;
dies that following impUlse rathe'r than reason,
for they would'have been safest perhaps in'the

Samson, who was at—the wheel, and 'begged
him not-to rime any more.

'a my opinion they mean to run us flown—
they must be all drunk there.
Tretty much replied the Kentuckian.—
'Bob Albert was in for it early this morning;
he's the only pilot on board, that is Beattie Is
down with the fever mighty low—Bob hates
your captain 4iere, and when We tight he's
perfectly crazy.'
'We shall all be lost--we shall all ha lost,'
'exclaimed the young lady. Oh? Mr. Old Ken
tucky 600 us.
'Old Kentucky will do that my dear young
lady if he has to shoot the rascal at the wheel;
they're bent on running us down—self preset
ration is the first law of nature—if two men
are grappling for the same plank at sea, which
will hold but tine, each has the right to push
the other off it he can—that's law I'm told,
tlidugh I never thought it exactly fair, especi
ally if the weaker, man had got the Maria. first

be a clear case of murder, and they are hardly

that you can hardly hear yourself talk. Hal

Rogers ion take the wheel a moment, and

, Don't kill him ,' exclaimed -Rogers,- neverr
(helms complying with his request.
'Kill him, no, but I'll just break that right
Arra of his between the wrist and elbow, the
firat.time he ehowtrit fairly.'
So saying Oa-Kentuckian deliberately lifted
his rifle to hiOhoulder. We all felt our den
gcr:,,too well io interfere or say a word. In a
moment more the sharplport of 'the ripe was
heard. Ail eyes were; filed upon the pilot of

to his aide, andihe Shelby uncontrolled' rushed

there Was a blush—a pause in the conversation;
for when Miss Lillywhito exclaimed "Fiddle.'
dee," It behooved thoughtless young ladies to .
look to 'themselves. Igritv, Miss Daffy had a
great talent for feinting. Perhaps the talent
was originally a natural gift; nevertheless, it
could not be denied that a frequent and earnest
cultivation of the endowment had brought it to
perfection. Miss Daffy, at one elinuto's notice,
could faint at any time, and upon any subject.
She could faint at either extreme of the day- 7
faint et breakfast or faint at supper; could
faint with equal beauty.and. truthfulness, whe
ther the matter to be fainted upon were a black
beetle, a'bull, or a bullfinch.

passed for

she might have got off with Via and thirty at
most. And Miss Lillywhite was as jocund as
she was handsome. It is said, there is no bet

white ,hed unconsciously, acted upon the un
known recipe, and had preserved herself in the
sweetness of her dispositiob. In the honey o
her goodness she was a pattern old maid. Yet
a pattern, - We would hope, serer to 6e followed,
for it is such women who MMIM the real wives
and mothers.

and gradually became very deeply wounded.—

Mils Lilly White drew her chair beside Ange

" Pleasure !" exclaimed Miss .Angelina.
"Who could remain dumb under such an impu:

"011,1 know all about its pleasure, my dear,"
said the. remorseless Blida Lilly white. " You

hurt. "We may faint onco_too-often," repeat

her customary smile beamed about her. "Of
this dreary truth 1 am a sad example."
"You! Miss Lillywhite ?" said Angelina.
"Listen;" said, the old maid. 't'Tis a short

"Mercy on me!" cried Angelina, " wha

My lover often looked coldly—suspiciously;

"Do go on," cried. Angelina. -
"And in a fAw, minutes I should have been

"Do go on," again exclaimed Angelina.
"As I swooned, the eq . '3 ll O (rem the
