building east, until the two roads Shall meet. 'LAM' '
thin two hundred and fifty miles remain to, be
built. Tho greater part of the interval is now grade

connection between San Francine, and Now York

• I had once an uncle wht was al
lowed to be the greatest oddity in
Shropshire, which , is Saying a good
deal:- As far as I heard from the eld
ers of my family, he got on like other
people in his early days (the most ac
curate said up to the beginning of his
twenty-sixtb year,)'wlien, after having
been duly articled to the most eminent
solicitor in our country town—getting
through -bis,'seven years- without mis
chance, pasaing , his -examination re
spectably and obtaining his certificate
—he, entered into partnership with
Messrs Gammon & Gosling, the heirs
and successors of his master in the law
and thought by all Shrewsbury to be
a most promising firm. I believe they
did business together for about
months ; the groat will case of Sharp
vs. Sinootby was the storm that ship
wrecked them, and then my uncle's
oddity was somehow developed. It
It proved to be of an uncommon kind.;
there was nothing ptculiarin his dress
manners ; or conversation ; he had al
ways been of a quiet, sensible turn.
.and so he continued to be; but heart
and mind, and money too, went from

tenement that nobody could begot to
take or buy, (and there's no scarcity of
the like in the county Salop.) It was
sure to be heard of, hunted up, and
leased, rented or purchased by Rich
and Ramshorn, Esquire—such, being
the style and title of my estimable rel
ative. For that bianeh of business he
gave up the management of_ people's
legal affairs,
his time being entirely oc
cupied IFitlillis takings and purchases.
He spent day after day in-solitary Sur
veys of these ruined dwellings, locking
or bolting himself in, as • ifony human
being. was likely to intrude upon him.
He half-repaired • some of them; he
half.-furnished others, he advertised
them far and wide, with the usual flour
ish about convenient and desirable
premisee, and had sundry fierce quar

was nineteen, and got first clerk
ship with CAelt. Co. Uncle •Iflch
aid was- reckoned an l eld bachelOr - by
that time; and the only confirmed spec
imen of thesingleprofession within our
borders except Cousin Grace.
In what degree of cousinship she
stood to all or any due I never clear
ly understood ; but Miss Grace, as we
juniors had to call her, styled herself
our cousin-in-general, bad -insisted on
all the rights, privileges and immuni
ties belonging to_ that title. She nev
er told her age, and nobody else ever
dared tell it, so I am silent on the sub-
jeet ; but Cousid Grace was - not very
young. and never could have been sup;
posed handsome lay any stretch of the
irifigination.• Fortune had been quite
as niggardly as nature in her case, her
father had left a considerable legacy of
debt ne well -as his . only daughter to
the care of his kindred ; and Cousin
, Grace said she would live and occupy
herself among them for the rest of her
days, since a maiden lady of sense and
energy was an inlhluable addition to'
any family. Acilirdingly, she minded
their houses and their affairs generally,
she governed their children, she lect
ured their young people, she gave the
ord ones her advir.e, whether they want:
ed it,or not, and she made them all un
derstand, that Cousin Grace was to be
well paid 'as well as highly esteemed
for her services. - •
There was a fine contrast between
the . maiden and the bachelor of w our
family. While Uncle Richard was per
petually spending and losing on his fa
vorite species of real -estates, Cousin
Grace had powers of saving and get
ting which were--perfectly marvelous,
considering her opportunities. As far
as we knew nobody had ever proposed
for her heart and hand, and Cousin
Grace had ,a high disdain of all man
kind in consequence; yet strange to
say, some ofl.lB --thought_she had a
lurking partiality for Uncle Richard.
We could - ail sympathize with her in
that ; notwithstanding that he was the
blot on our escutcheon, the oddity of
the family was generally liked, and
welcomed wherever, he went. Uncle
Ricbard hed — such an easy; friendly
way of meeting his difftbuities that the
general opinion was a capable woman
might de worse than marry and settle
.him. But Uncle Richard'had no heart
to giVe away from the old. walls ; and
Cousin Grace inferred, with some jus•
tice, that the workhouse wast,the only
jointere his spouse could ) apect ; so
the little scheme for makhigu Behedict

I saw the necessity of going, under
the circumstances; and what passed in
the back parlor that evening I never
could make out, but Cousin Grace
kept her resoluticin to lend Uncle Rich
ard the hundred pounds, which we all
believed to be her entire savings. No
persuasion, no pointing out of probable
consequences, could move her from it.,
Uncle Richtird had promised to pay
her; he would not break his word to
an unprotected female; mid she thought
it her duty as a cousin to give - him a
chance of retrievingthe misfortfinee of
his life with the Money, which she
would probably never want, for it was
her belief she was not long for this
world) Cousin Grace was a - lady not
easily turned from anything ehe had
set her mind on. When the entire clan'

was lent to-Uncle-Richard, and with it
he bought the old house in the marshy
hollow. - •
The joy or the folly of his life ap
peared to be era vned by the possession
of that coveted tenement. Morning,
noon and night he was descried mov
ing about its ruined walls, scrambling
out of some of its cashless -windows,
or seated on a rock Lard by, contem
plating his desirable property. The
reputation of the place prevented his
,being intruded. upon by curious neigh
bore ; none of the Ramshorns, except
Cousin Grace, would come • within a
mile of it or Lim ; their indignation,
including my own, knew -no bounds at
this last and most deliperate relapse
At the end of the first fortnight of his
ownership, Messrs. Gammon & Gosling
summarily dismissed him for neglect of
business, and Cousin Grace announced
her intention of marrying him without
delay. Of course she was reminded
of what sort of jointure was to be ex
pected ; but Grace- said. one couldn't
pass over one's lot ; i r and Uncle Rich
ard, being agreeable, the marriage came
off accordingly. The Ramshorns one
and all protested, in the first place, that
they would have nothing to do with
the pair, and finally went, in a body to
their wedding !• Grace almost sent the

blank side of the-letter there was writ
ten in a different hand, which I found
to be that of the late gentleman whose
will was disputed: 'The . thirty thou

discovered. but I have reason to believe
that the 'old house was in the neighbor

- MANY, years ago, soon after my
rival in India, fin old college friend of
mine•asked me to pay him a visit in
Nepali]. He often , tempt me
into shooting expeditions;-but I was
proof against all hie solicitations. At
last,.one day, he said be'was going to
beat the.jungle orethe hill—N agarj
I think, was his barbarous name where
-there were plenty of pheasants, and a
few woothica' to"be fouhd, and after
he had tried for 'small game, ho said
he raeant to have a beat after a leopard
which he had heard of thereabouts.
As I had not yet ascended: the hill,l
said I would go with him and see hoW
the valley looked. from up there. All
the forenoon-was spent in beating the
thick jungle akthe foot of the hill, and
'a very fair bag my friend made. We
then ascended, and halted for tiffin on
a bare shoulder, surrounded by a jun
gle about half way up the hill. From
this spot there was a lovely view .. of the
valley below, with all its streams, and
towns, wheat-fields, and pretty farm
houses ; so here Lsaid I would stay
to admire the scenery, while my friend•
beat for - the leopard.
After having had tiffin, away he went
with some, hundred native yelling cur
dogs, and tomtom-beaters, making
enough noise, I thought, to frighten
anything-within ten miles., of us. By
degrees the noise died away on the hill
side, and all was quiet, save from a
shrill shout now and then or the dis
taiit:Yell of some excited cur. •
Whether it was the'cheroot or the
heat or the unwonted tumbler of bitter

Adventure with a Buffalo
One beautiful, clear, cold morning
in January, a Western hunter started
out to shoot some prairie foWl. He
had not been Jung searching when he
came in sieht)of an enormous bull
buffalo. ~ He thus describes his encoun
ter with him i
Ho' was standing a little way off on
the plain, but the standingwillows -- a - nd
brushwood afforded me cover within
eighty yarlis of him, pratingly which
I crept up, and taking a deliberate aim,
fired. The- bull gave a convulsive
%tart, moved off a little way, and turned
his, broad lido' again to me.
• I- fired again, over 4 hundred yards
this time, whereupon he turned and
faced me; as if about to - shoW
As I was loading for a fotirth shot he
tottered forward a step or two; and
I thought he was about-to fall, so
waited a little while ; but as he did not
come down, I determined to go and
finish him. Walking up, therefore, to
within, thirty paces of him,. till I Could
actually see his eyes rolling, I fired for
the fourth , time directly for the region
of the heart, as I thought; but to my
- Titter amazement up_went hie tail and
down went his head, and with .a speed
that I thought him incapable . of, he
was upon 'me in a twinkling. I ran
hard for it, but he rapidly overhauled
me, and my situation was becoming
anything but pleasant. Thinking he
might, like our own bulls, shut his
eyes in making a charge,- I swerved
suddenly to one side to escape the
shook; but to my horroi I failed in
dodging him, for he bolted round me
quicker than I did, and affording me
barely time to protect my stomach with,
the stook of - my rifle, and to turn my
self sideways in hopes of getting be
tween his horns,
he oame plump upon
me with a shock like an earthquake
My rifle stock was shivered to pieces
by one horn, my clothes torn by the
other. I flew into mid air, scattering
my prairie hens and rabbits, which had
hitherto hung *dangling by leather
thongs from my belt, in all- directions, -
till landing at last,'l fell, unhurt in

The formation of what is usually term

Rev. Rowland Hill used to ride to
and from his church in a carriage. This
gave offense to one of his,parisboners,
at least,:who went so far to hand in,
among the notices, cinesrequesting "the
prayers of this congregation for the
pastor, who; yielding to pride; is in the
habit of riding in his carriage, not con-.
tent, like his divine Master, to ride
upon an ass. It was not till Mr. H.
had read the paper, and observed the
sensation created, that he noticed its
import ; then, laying it down, ho said :
"It is true, brethren and friends, I ride
in my carriage, but if the author of
this notice will appear at the door at
the close of the service, saddled and
bridled, I will do my best to ride him
home !" •
RYE lACes.-4t the Convention of
the Episcopal clergy of Pennsylvania,
in 1856, for the division of the diocese,
the Right Reverend Bishop Metoskry,
of Michigan, was present. When the
subject of a name for the new, diocese
came up for discussion, several were
proposed—as Western Pennsylvania,
Pittsburgh, Mpnongahela, etc. When--
the last 'name was mentioned, Bishop
MeCoskry rose with great gravity and
seriousness, and remarked that he was
entirely opposed to this last mentioned
name, Monengahela,.and, if seriously
urged, would -enter his solemn protest;
For," said he, •' I am'of the opinion
.that whenever that name is spoken it
will cause my brethren, as well as the
laity, to make rye faces.''—Panwau,
