In the saffron tinted morning,

Where our honored Chief is sleeping,
Mingles deep the passing bell.
Slowly glides the gallant vessel
By mount Vernon's hallowed shades,
And that mournful, mellow cadence,
Echoed through the dewy glades;

Offered to her noble son;
"Ns the fete heart's fervent homage.
At the grave of WARRINGTON I
In the slumberous hush of noontide.
With Potomac's anthem swell,
Where our honored Chief is sleeping
Mingles deep the passing hell.
Never marble mausoleum
Might mull nutfesty impart,
Nor the loud acclaim of millions.
As lithe homage of the heart

Offered to her noblest HO.

In the rosy hush of evening,
With Potomac's anthem swell,

a bad habit of' applying to ordinary, life

' At your way of expressing yourself,
I suppose, or at the frightful mess mild

Well, I can console myself with a
flirtation, perhaps. Look ! she's silting

exclaimed Clietwynd.. 'Now's the time—
I complied with his wish, and saw
little more of my friend that evening.

sinuate himself into the good graces of

intervals of attention to his other charge,

pointed, tightening the reins as he spoke,
to where the pale blue sky was beginning

requital for my honoring you with so

' Of course,' I answered, sniffling.
All the rest the way home, while
the world around us was waking to its
summer day's lite of' light and flowers
and shining Woods, Chetwynd was silent,
ever and anon taking from and replacing
in his mouth, an extinct cigar.
lle wrote his proposed letter from my
lodgings, and, after despatching it, sub
sided into a state of nervous anxiety, an
intense abhorrence for anything to eat, a
decided partiality for anything to drink,
and a most destructive fancy for a well
filled box of my particular Havana cigars.
I paid little attention to his proceed
ings, being engrossed myself with what
1 considered a very important task '1 his
was no other than the getting up of an
eleven toc,optend against the well-known
cricketingitown of Battington, by which
I, at the head- of my club, the Peripatet
ic Pifflers,' had belt, much to my chagrin,
already worsted once this year.
The P. P.'s were determined upon re
venge. Battington had been blatant upon
the theme of its vcitory ; and the main
cause of Chetwynd's being now my visitor
was the fact of lay having desired to se
cure his assistance—he . had been a
" Varsity' bat bcwler—in the second
otruggle And now deep despair seized
my soul, when I reflected that this sud
den escapade of my friend's would pro
bably be the cause of our second defeat,
by dt priving us of the aid of the famous
Charley Cam b ridge, such Was Chetwynd's
wont de thterre in the cricketing world.
But Fotune, who is said to delight -in
overthrowing the proud, seemed, about to
prove herself a consistent goddess by her
behaviour to- those conceited 13attingtoni

Chotwynd, jumping up from his chair.)
I am like Lydia Languish—l long for
the excitement pf a runaway marriage,
and hate the idea of the ordinary formal
and ceremonious one. I should prefer
abandoning my home by means of a rope
ladder.—('So you shall, and prettily your
sylph's ankle will trip down it,' put in
Chetwynd.) My niece knomis that you
have written to me ('niece—niece I' said
my friend, pausing. 'She means aunt—
she's agitated, poor thing !') She thinks
we ought to see each other—best in some
public place—to arrange matters. ('Quite

rapturously to his lips), "and sign myself

playfully conferred on me,
"P. S. You never would think we were
in that relationship, would you ?" '
I do not know which of us, my friend
or myself, underwent, at the close of this
letter, the most violent change of counte
nance from the respective causes of a
mazement and amusement.
'Why,' gasped Charley, 'they're the
same name, and the aunt's got wy letter.
But it's absurd. Why, I dwelt through.

were always laughing at in that unreaSon
'Du you?' I answered. But Charley
was by this time reperusing the letter

best thing yet;—fancy me wiiiting at the

sixteen stone ! "Have informed my niece

of all. I think I see the fun in Maus

'Well,' he enned, breaking off. see
nothing for me but to run away from this
Falstaffian female. I can't possibly have
the face to meet her, especially as it's my
mistake, and there is,' observed my friend
rising and complacently looking at himself
in the mirror over the mantelpiece—
'there's some excuse fur her proceedings.'
'Now, Jack, I'll tell you what—l'll
write an explanatory letter to the real
Maud; and you, in atonement fur your
sins, must manage to delver it—can't
trust the post; for I don't see how to pre.
vent the letter falling into the hands of
the other. 'Meantime, for the present,
I'll wake myself scarce."
'On one condition I'll help you,' was
my reply. 'You must play w'th us to day
against Buttington ; .it's five miles away,
and you can get farther off to morrow;
it'll do you good too—distract your mind.
It's nearly time to start now.'
'Well, you must do your best for me,
then,' returned my friend. 'Five miles is
far enough I suppose. Gumbleton's fu
ture'aunt doesn't play cricket, I should
think, and there's no danger of my meet
'No,' I said, 'but Gumbleton does—
plays against us to-day. You can have
the satisfaction of bowling at hip.'
'That would have decided it, an hour
ago,' said Charley. 'But, however, I
will go.' •
He went, and at the moment of his set
ting foot upon the Buttingtou cricket field,
Charles Chetwynd the lover in difficul
ties, vanished from o•tr sight, and orick
eting Charley Cambridge took his place.
Buttington went in first—the watch was
a one innings affair—and whoa
ton came to the, wickets, I saw a little
extra 'devil' in the eye of Charley, who
was bowling from the other end. Gum
bleton, before commencing operations, al
ways spent five minutes in beating down
imaginary hillooks between himself and
the bowler, taking objectless constitu
tionals round his wicket, and staring at,
each fieldsmitu in turn, as if he wanted
to identify him aftertvards upon a crimi
nal charge. 1 had, therefore, a good op.
pOrtunity for obtaining moderate odds a•
bout his retiring in the first over, and,
thereby, paid my travelling expenses.
Charley's fist, ball did not realize 'my
expectations it shot ..on tho legside, and
smiting' poor Gumbleton on• the 'ankle
bone just below , a rather inefficient, pad,
caused hink:to limp during • the remainder,
of the day. But the second whirled his
leg-stump a yard into , the air, and caused
of course, the adipose•batsmanto return
inglorious, to the tent. When' , the last of
tyo Battingtonian wickets, fell, the' chi
sttuotion of seven was credited to Char.:
ley, and Vic, total score was little over a
hundred, a 4ory small one when we con
sidered the run-favouring state of the
ground and the strength of batting talent
arrayed against us.
We—the Fifflore —began our innings
with much hope of victory. But' from
the effects, perhaps, of dinner beverages,
the P. P.'s, with one exception, came ,t s c
the wickets, some but to remind us of tire
fate of Gumbleton, others to lead a pre
carious life with the reward of an occa
sional 'single,' and sooner or later retire
without having attained any mastery over
the bowling. Charley alone, having gone
first i remained. By elegant d.Tence
and forward play, by showy and almost
inevitable mits, by frequent leg hits lung

it was within one of that of our oppo
nents. Even at this exciting moment it
flashed upon my mind how thoroughly
English was the scene, and how worth a
painter's while to portray.
The horizon, at its most distant point,
was ridged by a faint contrast of blue hills,
(the waves, 'as it were, spellbound in their
motion, of a giant's sea,) and nearer, more
boldly countered by dark lines and mass
es of wood, that, except where they gave
upon that distant range of sum wits, ran
like a fringe round the prospect. Flow
ing down the sides and from the feet of
those far eminences. came a stream of rich
and shining acreage, which, at the gorge
that broke the en cle of the woods, de
so us to truggest.a comparison
with a lake of green and 'golden waters
And these, where the undulated nose a
round us, who wi re the ceatre.point of
the scene, became waving wheat and tfil•11-
dotted grassland. :Summer and sunshine
had made everythin g their own; while
distant hills and sp res, and, clustering
nearer round its wide church tower, the
irregularly built village of Barrington,
told far and near of the life of the land
scape ; and we ourselves, a ring of sitting
or standing groups amidst the white tents
of the cricket-field—our faces riveted up
on the picture. its finish
of human interest.
The last fieldsman had just reached
his place for the new over, when I heard
the trampling of hoirien o❑ the sward be
hind me, and looking round, saw the cup
of triumph, so to speak, dashed from the
expectant lips of the Peripatetic Pifflers.
For at this moment there rode into the
field, late spectators of Gumbleton's
prowess, his finanrce and her aunt. I
glanced back at Charley, and saw that
they had caught his eye just as the op.
posing bowler started to deliver the first
ball of the over. The ball came straight
as an arrow, and Chetwynd, excited by
the sudden appearance of his dreaded
bete noir, did not wait to play it. Rush
ing out for a blind swipe: he hit, us I ex
pected.: ' over' the ball, and lost his mid
dle stump; to the accompaniment of a
shout of victory, to which every Batting
tonian on the field contributed his long
est and loudest.
By the device of dodging behind the
tallest, men, he attempted, amdist the
subsrquent confusion, to reach the tent
unobserved by the object of his alarm.
But Battington we. , generous, and insist
ed upon making him conspicuous by
cheering him, and I saw, with an inter
nal convulsion, the stouter of the two
ladies on horseback beckon him with her
hand td'approach them.
Hastily donnieg an outer garment
brought by an officious admirer, poor
Charley obeyed the signal. I observed
him approich, ruefully enough, the fair
invader of h.s r resence; .I,saw her greet
him with wreathed smiled, while, ever
and anon glancing at him from the other
side of her relative, the real object
of his passion gracefully reined in her
impatient bay thoroughbred.
' You see after all it is /who city oblig

course, that we should be here. Would
you like to kiss my bond ?' and the elder
lady half extended to him that number—
nct a very shapely one.

The Effect of Getting Married
Doubtless you have remarked with sat
isfaction, how the little oddities of men
who marry rather late in life are pruned
away speedily after their marriage. You
have found a man with a huge shirt col
lar flayed at the edges, and a glaring silk
pocket handkerchief, broken of these
things, and become a pattern of neatness.
You have seen a man whose hair and
whiskers were ridiculously cut, speedily
become like other human beings. You
have seen a clergyman who wore a long
beard, in a little while appear without
one. You havp seen a man who took
snuff copiohsly, and who generally had
his breast covered with snuff, abandon
the vile habit.
A wife is the grand wielder of the
moral pruning knife. If Johnson's wife
bad lived, there would have been no
hoarding up of bits of orange peel ; no
touching all the posts in walking along
the street ; no eating and drinking with
a disgusting voracity. If Oliver Gold.
smith had been married, he would never
have worn that memorable and ridiculous
coat, 1% henever you find a man whom
you know little about, oddily-dressed; or
talking ridiculously, or *exhibiting any
eccentricity of manlier, you may be tol
erably sure that he is not a married man.
The little corners are rounded off, and
the little shoots are pruned away in mar•
ried. men. Wives generally have much
moi'e .sense than their husbands; espe
cially if they are clever men. The wife's
advices are like Ballast that keeps the
ship steady. They are like the whole
some though painful shears, snipping off
little growths of self-conceit and folly.

What We Owe to the East
We forget how many contributions to
cur own comforts are of Oriental origin
Their commonness hides them from our
view. If the American wishes to know
how much he owes to the Asiatic, heifas
only to cast a glance at an hour of his
daily life. The clock which summons
him from 'his bed in the morning was
the invention of' the East, as also were
clepsydras and sun-dials. The prayer
for his daily bread, that he has said from
his infancy, first rose from the side of a
-;yrian mountain. The linens and cotton'
with which he clothes himself. though
hey may he very fine, are inferior
those that, have been made from time im
memorial in the looms of India Th.
-ilk was stolen for his benefit from China
He could buy better steel than that wilh
which he shaves himself in the old city
of Pamascus, where it was first invented
The coffee he expects at breakfast was
first grown by the Arabians, and the na
tives of Upper India prepared the sugar
with which he sweetens it. A school-boy
can tell the meaning of the .Sanscrii
words " sacchara eanda." If he prefers
tea, the virtues of that excellent leaf wer.
first pointed out by the industrious Chi
nese. They also taught him how_ to make
and use the cup and saucer in which to
serve it. His breakfast tray was lac.
quefed in Japan. The egg he is break•
ing was laid by a fowl whose ancestors
were first domesticated by the Malaccans,
unless she may have been—although that
will ,tot alter the case—a modern Shang
hai. If there are preserves and fruits
on his board, let him remember With
- , thankfulness that Persia first gave him
the cherry, the peach, the plum. If in
any of these pleasant preparations he de.
tects the flavor of alcohol, let it remind
him that thap substance was first distilled
by the Arabians. A thousand years be
fore it had occurred to him to enaot laws
of restriction in the use of intoxicating
drinks: the Prophet of Mecca did the
same thing, and has compelled to this day
millions to obey them. We gratify our
taste for personal 'Ornaments in the way
the Orientals taught us—with pearls,
rubies, sapphires, diamonds. Of public
amusements it is the same. The most
magnificent fire-works are still to be seen
in India and China; and as regards the
pastimes of private life, neither America
nor Europe has prbilided an invention
that can rival the game of chess. We
have no hydraulic constructions as great
as the Chinese Canal, no fortifications as
extensive as the Chinese Wall; we have
,Artesian Wells that Can at all ap

GEN. SHERNIAN CORNERED.—WhiIe

tent one day during thr Georgia cam
paign, the medical director, who knew
that the former liked a "glass" occasion

and ill, and if he would go with him he
would give him a eeidlitz powder. The
General acquiesced in the proposal with
alacrity, but Gon. Howard opening his
valise begged him not to leave and pro
duced a powder which he mixed and gave

chagrined at the losi4 of the ardent, was
much amused at Howard's ruse and drank
the cup manfully. The by-standors who

mare, in a pasture, about six miles from
Bridgeport, and attempted to steal her:
She had a way of showing her ankles to
strangers— and in the morning the thief
was found in the pasture in a helpless
condition, from a broken leg, the result
of a hearty kick. We think the farmers
in this vicinity would do well to teach
their mares that trick.
