.THERE ARE TWO THINGS, EAITII LORD. BACON, WHICH MARE A, NATION GREAT. AND'_ pRospHROHE—A FERTILE'HOIL AN D Duty WORKSHOPS;—TO WHICH LET -ME ADD , KNOWLEDGE AND FREENDU--Bilhop Hail '
IN a certain town in the West of -England,
which shall be nameless, there dwelt two mai 7
den ladies of the name of Smith; cagy posies
sing a small independence, each residing with
a single maid servant, in a small house, the
drawing room floor of which was lot, whenever
lodger; could be found; each hovering some
where about the age pf fifty, and each hating
the other with a restless and implacable. en
mity. The origin of this aversion was the
similarity of the names; each was Miss C.
Smith, the ono being called Cecilia, the ethic;
Charlotte—a circumstance which gave rise to
such innumerable mistakes and misunderstan
dings, as were sufficient to maintain these la
dies in a constantatate,of irritability and war
fare. Lettersonesdages,davitations, pareels,
bills, were'daily missent, and opened by the
wrong person, thus exposing the private af
fairs of one to the other; and as their aversion
cy od either side,- any information so acquired
ins used ll:Hifi - nit scruple to their Mutual atc

'or other delicacies from the neighboring gen

for her ; and this not from greediness or ra
pacity but from the absolute delight they took
in vexing each other.
It must be admitted, also, that this well
known enmity was occasionally played uponby
the frolick loving part of the community, both
high and low; so that over and above the gen
.uine mistakes, _which w4e. of themselves quite_
enough to keep the poor ladiei 'in hot water,
every now and then some little' hoax was got
up and practiced upon them, such as fictitious
love-letters, annonymous communications, and
so forth. It might have been imagined, :IS
they were not answerable for their names, and
as they were mutual sufferers by the similari
ty—one having as muck right to complain of
this freak as the Other; that they might have
entered into a compact of forbearance which
have been equally advantageous to either par
ty; but their natural acrimonious disposition
prevented this, and each continued as angry
with the other ns she could have been if she
had had a sole right and indefeasible right to
: the apppellation of C. - Smith, and her rival had
usurped it in a pure spirit of annoyance and
opposition. To be quite just, however, we

By the passing of the Reform Bill, the little
town wherein dwelt these belligerent female
powers received a very considerable accession
of importance ; .it was elevated into aborough,
and had a whole life member to itself, which,
with infinite pride and gratification, it sent to
parliament, after having extracted from him
alt manner of pledges, nud loaded trim with all
manner of instructions as to how ho should
conduct himself under every conceivable,oir
cumstance ; not to mention a variety of bills
for the iniprovoment of the roads and markets,

A short time previous to the first election—
an event which wds'anticipated by the inhabi
tante with the mosevivid interest—one of the
candidates; a country gentleman who resided
some twenty miles off, took a-lodging in the
town, and came with wife and family; in or. : ,
der, by a little courtesy and a few entertain' I
meats, to win the hearts of the electors and
their friends; and his first move was to send
out invitations for a tea and card party, which,
in duo season, when the preparations were
completed, was to be followed by a ball.—
There was but ono milliner and dress maker of
any-consideration in the town of 13— and
it may be imagined that on ,s 0 splendid an oc

THE TWO MISS SMITHS.
CARLISLE, PA., WEDNESDAY, ]FEBRUARY 19, 18 5 1.
woe about half past eleven, every hood that'
was interested in the freight was to be aeon
looking anxiously forward for the deal boxes;
and,. sure enough, there they wcro—thrmi of
thera. - - - -largeranonglr - to - contain - caps - for - the
whole town. Then there was a rush up stairs
for their hennas and shawli; and in a few
minutes troops of ladies, young ant old were
seen hurrying towards the market-place, where
dwelt Miss Gibbs—tlM'young in pursuit of
artificial flowers, and gold bands, and such
like ornaments—the elderly in search of More
mature order of decoration.
Amongst the candidates for finery, nobody
was more eager than the two Miss Smiths . ;
and they had reason to be so, not only because
they had neither of them anything at all fit to
be wn at Mrs. Ilanaway's party, which was
in style much above the entertainments they
were usually invited to, but alio because they
both invariably wore turbans, and each was
afreid.thatathe_other.might carry off the iden
tical turban dint - might be most desirable for
herself. Urged by this fooling, so aloft were
they, that they were each standing'at their
several windows when the coach pas Sod with
their bonnets and cloaks actually on—ready to
stoat for the place !--deterrnined to reach Miss
Gibb's in thin to .witness the opening of tho
boxes. But "who shall control his fate 1"
Just as Miss Cecilia. was steppinfg off her
threshold, she was accosted by a very gentle
danly looking person, who, taking off his hat
with an air perfectly irresistible, begged to
know if ho -had the honor of seeing "Miss
Smith"-ii question which was of course an
swered in the affirmative.
"I was not quite sure," said he, "whether
I was right, for I had forgettefithe number;
but I thought it was sixty," and he looked at
the figures on the door.
"This is sixty, air,"-said Miss Cecilia; ad
ding to_herself, "Lwonder if it was sixteen ho
was sent fer•at sixteen lived Miss Char
" I was informed, madam," pursued the
'gentleman, "that I could be accommodated
with apartments. here—that you had a first
floor to let." .
That is quite true, sir,'! replied Miss °e
cilia, delighted to let her rooms, which had
been some time -vacant, mill doubly grAtifie4
when the stranger added,
"I come from Bath, and wns recommended
by n friend of'yours - Oil - deed probably w. - rela- -
tive, as stie hears the same name—Nisi; Joan
na Smith." •
"I-know Miss Joanna very well, sir," re
plied Miss Cecilia; "pray walk up stairs, and
I'll shoW you the apartments directly.. (For,".
thought she "ho must not go out of the house
haehrigage'd thero,'Sde fear he should
find out his mistake.) Very nice rooms, sir,
you seeevarything clean and comfOrtable—
a pretty View of the' canal in front—just be
tween the baker's and shoemaker's; you'll get
a peep, sir, if you step to this window. Then
it's uncommonly lively; the Exeter and Ply
mouth coaches, up and th:iwn, rattling through
all day long, and indeed all night too, for the
matter of that. A beautiful little bed-room,
back, too, sir—yes, aa you observe, it certain
ly does look over a bricksiln; but there's no
dustnotihelleast in the world—for I never
allow the window to be opened ; altogether
there can't be a plaianter-iiiiiitiOinkTurit;
The stranger it must be owned, seemed less
sensible of all these than be ought to have
been; however ho engaged the apartments;
it was btit fora short time, as he had come
there about some business connected with the
election and as Miss Joanna had so particular
ly recommended him to the lodging, lie did not
like to disoblige her, so the bargain was struck;
the maid received orders to, provision the gar
rison with bread, butter, tea, sugar; Sze., while
the gentleman returned to the inn to despatch
Boots with his portmanteau and carpet-bag.
"You were only just in time, sir," observed
Miss Cecilia, as they descended the stairs,
wr I expected,gentlomnn to call at twelve o'-
ock to-day, who, I am sure, would have ta
ken the lodgings." • \ • -
"I should bp sorry to stand in the l'ay,"
replied the strangdr, *mild nbt have been
at nll sorry for an opportunity of backing out
'of the bargain. "Perhaps you had better let
him have thent—l can easily get aecommoda-
"Ch, dear, no, sir; dear me! I wouldn't
do luch a thing for the world!" exclaimed
Miss Cecilia, who had thrown out this little
inuendo by way of binding her lodger to la
bargain, lest, on discovering his mistake, ho
should think himself at liberty to annul the
agreement. For well-she knew that it waaa
mistake ;t_Missloanna of_BathAvaa_Miss Char,
lotto's first cousin, and, hating Miss Cecilia,
as she was bound to do, would rather send her
a dose of arsenic than, a' lodger, any day.—
She had used every precaution to avoid the
accident that had happened, by writing on, a
card, "Miss Charlotte Smith, No. 16 High
Street, B , opposite the linen draper's;
shop;', but the thoughtless traveller 'never
dreaming of the danger in Which he stood, lost
tke eard,.and trusting to his memory, fell, in
to the snare.
Miss Cobilia had been' so engrossed by her
anxiety to hook this fish before her rival could,
have a chance of throwing out a bait for Lim;
that, for a time she actually forgot Miss Gibbs
and the turbans; but now that point was gain
ed, and she felt sure of her man, her former
care revived with all its force, and she hurried
along the street toward the market place in a
fever of apprehension lest slie should be too
late. The matter certainly looked ill; for,' ad .
she arrived breathless at the door, she saw ,
groups Of self-datilfied faces issuing frottl it,
and among ilkyrest, the obnoxious Miss Char
lotte's physiognomy , appeared, looking more
pleased than anybody. .
"Odious creatural,' thought ,Miss
"as if she supposed any turban in tho, world'
could make her look . tolerable!" But Miss .
Cliarlettelid suppose it; and moreover she
had Just scoured the very identical turban that
of all the. turbans' that were eveynirdi °Naos
most likely to accomplish tbisidesideratun—
at least so . she opined. /. .• '
Poor Miss Omni Upstairs she rushed,
bouncing in Miss Gibbs' little room, now
stre*cd with finery. Well, Mies Gibbs, I
hope.you have 4omothlng that will aultmor
"Dear me, mom," responded Miss Gibbs,
"what , a pity you did not come a little soon er. 'The only two turbans we had are just gone—
Mrs. ,Gosling took one, and Miss Charlotte
.Smith the other—two of the beantifulest--
and she opened the boiesla whfch ;they were
deposited, and: presented thorn to the grieved
oyo of Miss Cecilia.'
She stood aghast! The turbans were very
respectable turbans indeed; bet to her 'dieap
pointeil and eager desires they appeared wor- -
thy of Mahoinet the Prophet, or - the grand
Sultan, or any other body, mortal or hailer:
tal, that has ever been reputed to'wear tur
bans. And this consumation of perfection she
had lost 1 lost just by a deck I Missed it by an
accident, that, however, gratifying the had
thought it at the time, she now :felt was but
an inadequate compensation for herdisappoint
ment. But thero Was no remedy. Miss Gibbs
had nothing fit to make a turban of; besides
Miss Cecilia would have, sobrned to appear in
any turban that Miss Gibbs could have com
piled; when her rival was to be adorned with
a construction of such superhunian excellence.
No! the only consolation she had was to scold
Miss Gibbs, for not having kept the turbans
till she hadacen them, and for not having sent
for a greater number of turbans. To which
objurgations Miss Gibbs could only answer:—
she had been extremely sorry indeed,
when she ea* the ladies there bent upon hav
ing the turbans, as she had ordered two en
tirely with a view to Miss Ceoilinis accommo
dation; -and moreover sheiwas nevormoresur
prised in her life than when Mrs. Gosling de
sired one of them might be sent to her, be
cause she never wore turbans ;' and if Miss
Gibbs had only foreseen that she would pounce
upon it in that way, she, ,Miss, Gibbs, would
have taken care she should never have seen it
all," &c. &c. &c., all of which the roader - may
believe, if he or she choose. - _ .
As for Miss Cecilia, she was implacable, and
she flounced out of the house, and through the
streets, to her own door, in a temper of mind
that rendered it fortunate, as far as the peace
of the town of -B--- was concerned, that no
accident ,brought her in contact with Miss
Charlotte on her way.
As soon as she got into her parlor, she
threw nil her_bonnet_and_shawl, and_plunging,
-into-her arm- chair,-she - tried. to.compase her
mind sufficiently to-take a calm view of the
dilemma, and deterihine on what line of con
iinet4te pursue '-whether to send nn2excuse to
hirs:,Alanaway, or whether to go to the" party
in one nf her old head - dresses. Either 'alter- -
native was insupportable. To lose the party,
the game at 100, the distinction of being seen
In such good society—it was teo2rovoking;
besides,' eery dkoly pcoglo ivotaSppose she
had not been invited,•' Mias,Oharlotte, she had
no doubt would tiyto make them believe so.L
But then on thc,,ether band, to Wear ono of
her old turbans was so mortifying—they were
so very shabby, so unfashionable,-on an occa
sion too, when every, bodyllionlil bo so well
dressed! Oh! it was so aggra*ating—voxa-
Bons in the extreme! Sho,passed the day in
reflection, chewing the cud of swept and bit
ter fancies—retailing to herself how well 'she
looked in the turban—for she had tried it on
figuring what would hare been Miss Char
otte's mortification if ehe had becnthe disap-
pointpd person—how triumphantly she, Miss
Cecilia, would • have marched into tho room
with the turban on her head—how crest-fallen
tho other• would lave looked—and then she
varied her occupation by resuscitating all her
old turbans, buried in antique band-boxes,
deep in dust, and trying whether it were pos
sible out of their united materials to concoct
ono of the present fashiona shape and di-
Mensions. But the thing was impracticable—
the new turban was composed of crimson satin
, and lace, her's of pieces of muslin and gauze.
When the mind is very much engrossed,
whether tho subject of contemplation be plea
sant or unpleasant, 'time flies with inconceiva
blx„, 'dity—and Miss Cecilia was roused

Instead"Of four O'clock; how ardently did
Miss Cecilia wish it was sovon—for the dan

Weltsite understood bow 'the turban had got

The magnitude:of theithing gave an oh., and
indeed a, feeling ofx,.dignity and importance
that she had . uever io'en sonsible of before.
The gold lace looked brilliant even by the
light of her. elnide.tallow candle—What would
it do in a well illuminated Vrawing-romal—
then the color waft strikingly ledoming and
suited herhair exactly—Miss Cecilia; we must
here observe, was quite gray-;-but she wore a
rout of - daik - curls; and-a- little - blank-sil.
skull-cap, fitted closely to • her head, which
kept all neat and tight under the turban. -
She had not far - to goneverthelosi, she
thought it would-be as well to set Off at once,
for fear of accidents, for every moment the
Zrnger augmented---so she - called to Susan to
bring her cloak, and her calash, and her over

Sue, who declared the turban was "without
exception the beautifulest thing she over saw,"
she started—determined, however, not to take
'the direct way, but to makoa little circuit by a
back street, leit by ill luck, she should fall
foul of the enemy.
" Susan," said she, pausing as she stepped
off the threshold, "if anybody calls,. you'll

many of his order aro remarkable, proceeded
to disengage the lady from her'external cover
ings--the cloak, the.overalls, the t . and.
•thelt, without giving her time to breathe, ho
rushed up stairs, calling out " Miss Cecilia
Smith;" whilst the butler, who stood at the
drawing-room' door, threw it open, reiterating,
" Miss Cecilia Smitif;" and she went in. But,
O reader, little do you think, and little did
she flit*, wherc,thaturban was that alto im
agined to be upon,` er head, and undar the
supposed shadow of;;whioli •she walked into
the room with so mica dignity and oempla
cence. It was below in the hall, lying on the
floor, fast in the calash, to which Susan, ill
starred_wenoh ! had pinned it; and , the
man; in his cruel had dragiefi them
both off together.
With only someluder-trappings on her cra
nium, and altogether unconscious of her cal-
ninit.4 smiling and bowing, - Miss ad
vanced. towards her host and hostess, who re
ceived_her-in. the-most gracious manner,-think=
log, certainly, flat her head-dress was pocu-
liar, and that she was about the most extraor
dinaryligure they ever beheld, -but supposing
that such was the fashion she chose to adopt
the less astonished or inclined to suspect .the
truth,.from having heartr a good deal of : the
eccont4citics of the two spineterso 7 - 7 , 7-7 ?
But, to rest of. the company, the appeCr 2
mice she made was inexplicable; they bad
been accustomed to see her ill-dressed, and
oddly dressed, but such a flight as this they
were not prepared for. 'Some whispered that
she had gone mad; others suspected' that it
must be accident=that somehow or other she
had forgetten,to put on her head-dress; 'but
even if it were so, the joke was an excellent
one, and nobody - cared enough - for her 'to cite
rifice theiramuseritent by setting her right.—
So Miss Cecilia, lessed in her delusion, tri
umphant and hap`py,_took her place at the
-whist,--tableb-anxiously -celecting - cryositiorr
which gave heqt•full view of the door, in or
der that she might have the indescribable'sat
isfaction of seeing the expression of Mis Char
lotte's countenance When she entered the room
—that i; if she came; the probability was,
that mortification would keep her away.
But no such thing—Miss Charlotte had too
much spirit to be beaten out of the field in
that manner. She had waited with impatience
for the turban, because Miss Gibbs had told
her, that, having many things to send out, it
might be late cro she got-it—but when half
past six arrived, she became impatient, and
dispatched her maid to fetoli it, the maid re
turned, with "Miss! Gibbs' respects, and the
girl was still out with the things—she would
he sure to call at Miss Charlotte's before she
came hack." At half-past iNlvelr there was
another message, to say elk the turban had
not yet arrived—by this time the girl had done
her errands, and Miss Gibbs, on questioning
her discovered the truth. But itvvas too late
—the mischief was irreharable—Susan aver
'ring, with truth, 'that her mistress had gone to
Mrs. Hana Way's party some time tie; with
the turban on her head.
We will not attempt to paint Charlotte's
feelings--that would be a vain endeavor.—
Rage took pos'session of her soul—her attire
was all complete, all but the • head-dress, for
which,aho was waiting. She selected the best
turban olio had, threw on her cloak 'Calash, and
in a -condition-of-mind-bordering-upon- phren- -
zy, abo *died forth, determined, be the con
sequences what they might, to claim her tur
ban, and expose Miss Cecilia's dishonorable
conduct before the Whole ,company.
By the time she arrived at Miss Hanaway's
doCr, owing to the delays that had intervened,
it was nearly half-past eight—the - company
bad all• arrived—and whilst the !littler and
footmen were carrying up refreshments, ono
of the female servants of the establishment
had come into - the hall, and endeavored . to in
troduce some sort of order and classification
amongst'the - mass of external coverings which
had been hastily thrown off by the ladies—so,
when Miss Charlotte knocked, she opened the
the door and let her in, and . proceeded' to re
lieve her of hor wraps. •
..I.,supposo I'm - ,very late," said Mies Char
lotte, dropping into a chair to seize a moment's
rest,. while the woman drew off her boots—for
she was out of breath with haste, and heated

and she was vexed that her..triumph was not
so complete as she had . expected. But Miss
Charlotte was in ecstasies. Ikmay be'suppo
sed she was not slow to tell the story—it soon
flew round the room, and the whole party was
thrown into convulsions of laughter. Miss
Cecilia alone was not in the secret L-and as
shewas successful at cords, and therefore in
good humor, she added to their mirth by say
ing that she was glad to see every one so mer

'You may send him down to the store after

I can do with him.? Mr. Hunter then went to•
his store, where several men were waiting for
him. The store receive(' but ar small share' of

said Mrs. Iluater.
'Do you know what he wants of me?' said
William, with a hush occasioned by the fear
that some Of his irregularities bud ceme to.
his father's knowledge.
. 'He'wishes you to assist in the store.'
'Very well, I will,go down.'
Now it happened that William had made an..
engagement to meet some of his companions ~

to be engaged at the store. He did not fail to
go there, however; for he bad not yet learned

The newspaper from the city was handed
him, and after having looked over certain, por
tions which have no interest for general read
ers, ho was ready for his supper. After sup. '
per he was to meet the committee, who had-
the welfare of their party in charge.
Mr. Hunter was to busy to give any atten

Was there a necessity laid upon him to extend
his litisineas so widely as to leave him no time
to attend to the education of his son—no time •
to take care a- his 'own soul? Was- it more
important that ho should bo rich, than that .
his son should escape ruin?
How many fathers are there in this land of
enterprise and energy, who must be classed
with Mr. hunter? •
Mr. Hunter determined to give his son the
best advantages for education which the count
ry afforded. He was, doubtless, willing - to be
at any 'expense that , should be necessary to
secure that object. By that means he thought.
to atone for his own neglect!
