MADAME SCANDAL
A Ions time a-n, in the western nart of
Limland. there lived an ie-eJ -,!.
timo haJ passed awav, sine eailv youth
in Hip every day round ft larui hie, and
; who had iair lm-u kiiuwn to b:ie th"
i least i!lltt iinirs ttw;i:.!s t-acli other, si:i.-e:
the p,eij old timts wh.nold 1'arson I Id
lot had unitisl tliem i:i the h. lj boo, of
wcllock twenty-f.ve veils before. S-j
, well was their et njuj i! happiness known,
. that th.-y were sp.keri t f jar and near a-
. the happiest pair in Ilo-Lml. Now, the
Devil (excuse. t!ie abiupt mention of his
, name) had boon trin,; twenJy jears to
; create what i- called "a f'u.v in the f.itn
ily" Iwtween these old co npaniuns. I5ut,
! much to his inortificatioii, he had not been
abh; to induce the old pe itleman to rruni
; ble about breakfast bt in toj late or the
,' old woman to give a single' curtain h cture.
j After repeated cHorts, the ii became
: discouraged, and had he not been a pcr
i son of great determination, lie would have
i doubtless given the work up in despair.
! One day as he walked along in a very-
. - - -
surly mood, after another attempt to get
i the old lady, to quarrel about the pigs get- I
' ting into the yard? he met an old hulv. a '
neighbor of the aged couple. As Mr.
Devil and the neighbor were very partic
ular friend, they must needs stop on the
way and chat a little.
"Good morning, sir," said she, "and
pray what ou earth makes you look so bad
this morning ? Isn't the controversy be
tween the churches doing good service
"Yes."
"Isn't Deacon W.
bad whiskey V
making plenty of
"Yes."
"Well, what is the matter, my
I Snored master r ' ' J
replied the Devil, "but (and he looked as
sour as a monkey on a crab apple tree)
old Dlucford and his wife over here are
injuring the cause terribly by their bad
example ; and after trying for four years
to induce thorn to do right, I must say I
consider them hopeless."
The hag stood a moment in Jeep
thought.
"Are you sure you have tried every
way ?"
"Every way I can think of."
Aie you certain?"
"Yes."
"Well,"
replied she, 'if you will prom-
isc to make me a present of a new pair j State, was elected Lieutenant-Colonel of
of shoes in case I succeed, I will make 1 the Second Pennsylvania regiment of vol
tho attempt myself, and see if I can raise ' unteers in the war with Mexico, upon the
a quarrel between them." ! organization of that regiment in the city
To this reasonable request the Devil j of Pittsburgh. William 1. Huberts, of
ing dialogue iouk place :
"Well, friend 15-, you and Mr. 15. have
lived a long time together."
"I ive and twenty years, come Novem-
ber," replied Mrs. B.
"Ami all this time you have never had
a quarrel ? "
"Xot one."
"I am truly glad to hear it," continued
the ha;r, "I consider it my duty to warn
you, tiiougn tins is tne case, you musi noi
expect it to be ahvavs. Have vou not
L-t it to be alwavs. Have
nWrvod
observed that of late Mr. I.
has been
peevish and sullen at times? "
'A very little so," observed Mrs. lilue
ford. "I knew it," continued the hag ; "and
let mo warn you to be on your guard."
Mrs. P. did think she had better do
sound asked advice as to how she should
manage the case.
"I Live' you not noticed," said the hng,
"that your husband has a bunch of long,
harsh hair growing under the chin on the
side of his throat "
4 'Yes."
"These are the cause of the trouble,
and as long as they remain, you had better
l.iok nut Now. as a friend. I would ad-
vise you to cut them oil the lirst tune you
get a chance, and thus end the trouble, for
as long as they remain, you had better
look out."
Soon after this the hag started for home,
and made it convenient to meet Mr. Ik
on the Way. Much the same talk in re-
lation to his domestic happiness passed
between him and the old woman.
"Dul, friend lilucford," said she, "I
think it my duty to tell you to be on your
guard, for I tell you your wife intends
your ruin."
Old Mr. Ik was very much astonished,
yet he could not wholly discredit her
words. When he reached homo he threw
himself on the bed in erple.ity, and
feigned himself asleep, studied the matter
I over in his mind. His wife, thinking this
I a good opportunity fur cutting off the ob-
31, 1SGG.
' noxious hair, took her husband's razor and

'".'i j-n-.iujf as ii once was ; so, oe-
twioi l!..'tv.M .h.j went to .rk very
akw:rd!y, and pulled the hairs, instead
of cutting them olf. Ik -opened his eyes,
and there stoo 1 his wife with n razor at
hi throat. After what had been told
him, and feeing this he could not doubt
but that she intended to murder hiiu. He
sprang from the bod in horror; no expla
nation or entreaty could convince hiiu to
the contrary. So from that time there
was a jaw, a quarrelling and wrangling
all the time.
! With delight the Devil heard of the
. faithful emissary, and sent her word
the would meet him at the end of the lane, ! he was promising to pive company 1 1 the
: at a certain time, he would pay her the J privilege of electing their own ttiicci s ae-
shoes. At the appointed time she repair- i cording to the laws of the State of IVuu
ed to the spot, and found the Devil at the sylvania, he, the said Geary, bargained
placc. He put the shoes on a pole, and
standing on the opposite side of the fence,
handed them over to her. She was much
pleased with them they were exactly
the article.
"Uut there is one thing, Mr. Devil, I
would like to have explained ; this is,
why 3 0U hand them to me on a stick ? "
"Very easy to explain," replied he :
"an' one w ho has the cunning and mean
ness to do as you have done, don't get any
nearer than twenty feet to me." So say
ing, he lied in terror.
After a while the old woman died, and
when she applied for admittance to the
lower regions the Devil would not let her
in, for fear she mitrht dethrone him. as
j she was so much his superior. So the
! old woman is yet condemned to w ander
j the world, creating quarrels and strife in
peaceful families and neighborhoods,
i Would you know her name ?
j It is Madame Scandal. When she
, died the young Scandals were left orphans,
j but the Devil, in consideration of past
services done by the mother, adopted them,
j and so you see he is father to that respect
! able class called scandal mongers.

ior g.auanc conduct ana mtrepia oravery
; in all the important engageier.t3 iiom
j Vera Cruz to the city of Mexico, includ-
i ing the bloody assaults jipon Uio gates of
' that city. They continued iu'Vice until
; the end of the war, and-were honorably
i discharged. The survivors, upon their
' return home, were received with earned
and highly distinguished honors by their
: fellow-citizens. Here, at the county seat
they were honored by a splendid recep
tion, participated in by the citizens of the
county generally, as well as by the ladies,
who gieeted their return with all that del
icate attention and refined taste peculiar
to their sex. At Connelisvillc, also, they
were the recipients of a handsome ovation,
the heartfelt tribute of the citizens and la
dies of that place and vicinity. The re
j ecption at Connelisvillc took place on
i Saturday, July lo, 1818. The recep-
j Hon speech was made by Dr. James C.
Cunnnings, and the response by Sergeant
' Peter A. Johns. After the delivery of the
j speeches and partaking of an elegant din-
,lor prepared for the occasion, the return-
i ed soldiers met togather and viianinwusty i
j adopted a preamble and series of rcsolu- j
' lions, which show up the character of
tioim tv. tjeary in suen a ugni as would i
t, nr t i.
render his election as Governor an ever
lasting disgrace to the "State of Pennsyl
vania. These resolutions were, it wiil be seen,
vnaniiiioushf adopted by true and tried sol- j
diers, by men who' knew Geary well, and
j by suen who did not hesitate to proclaim
their estimate of Ins character, and that
too, not in tender dainty sentences, but in
well-expressed and forcible language.
The testimony of these proceedings gains
additional force from the fact that it was
uttered at such a time and under such cir
cumstances as to exempt it entirely from
any imputation of political influences.
The proceedings were published in the
papers of this county by request of the
soldiers, on the 27th of July, ISIS, and
here they are.

deep and abiding indignation of the con
duct of John V. Geary, sir.ee he was

cured his election by a mere nluralitv of

ing appointments in said company II to
men from other companies who might an

Congress of the loth May lSLil, calling
for volunteers for the war with Mexico,
has this provision :

bers of the Fayette County volunteer:-,
view the conduct of the said John W.
Geary towards Company II as an outrage,
upon their just rights, as secured to thi ;u
by the laws of Pennsylvania as well ;.t
the laws of Congress. The whole course,
and conduct, of the said Gcu-y being in
consistent with the character of a gemie
man or man of honor, it was treating us
as a set of men who did not know tl it
