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.

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.

ELLIOTT, Main street. Carlisle. 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, rho erection of a town hall, and the reform of 'the system_of_watching,..payini, the impdrtant and consequential little town of 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 casion her services were in groat request-6d much-so that in the natter of head dresses, she found that it ivould be impossible, in so short a .period, .the commando of her customers, but alai that she had not the skill to give ,them eatiellietion. • It' was, therefore, settled that she should send off an order to a house in.Blcter,which tyres the county town, fc;ra cargo of daps, toquete, turbiris, , for all age's and faces—"such as were not disposed of, 'Oho returned;" and the ladies consented to wait, , witlr the best patience they could, for this interesting. consign - Montwas to arrive, without fail, on' Wednesday:,.

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 lotte. . " 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- ted elsewhere." "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-- -here-thei-arel-indeed7-you-shall-see-thenv;'- 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!

But the thing was impracticable— the new turban was composed of crimson satin , and lace, her's of pieces of muslin and gauze.

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 alls, and being welliacked up by the admiring 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 say I have been -gone ' to . Mrs. Hathaway's some time r. ; and, Susan, just put a pin in this calash to keep it back, it falls over -, my eyes' so that I can't see." And Susan pinned a fold in the calash, and away went the triumphant Mies Cecilia. She did not wish to be guilty of the vulgarity of arriving, first at the party so lingered abOut till it wanted a quarter to eight, andthenahe knocked at Mrs. Hatha way's door, which a smart footman immediate ly opendil, and with the alertness for which 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.

Next to the carbonates of limo the sulphates are the mot abundant and Useful of all lime formations, These are also Composed of three elements, and the same as in the Carbonates, except that sulphur takes the place of the car bon. The oxygen and 'the sulphur form sul phuric abitl;' that, combining with the oxygen of calcium, gives the sulphate of linio. This abundant deposits of limo formations also pre sents very numerous appearances. All the sul phates of lime,„ermearly so, give to the thumb nail.

How came he to be so pusit 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.
