Say good bye to you. grand mother, quick.' •1 . 11 be a good girl, indeed I will,' whin prr••d the trembling lips. as they drew up to the grandmother's, and the smiling face was dim with tears. rGod bless you, Elsie, my child.' And the husband hurried her away. Elsie ttrymond's future must tell the story of the past. Both her parents lay under the spring grass before she had learned t o know them, and so she went to her grandmother's bean and home. There only sunshine lay over her life. The ten der, indulgent grandmother forgot there must come en hour S hen the clouds would rise, arid the great lite storms descend upon the flower that grew up in such beauty at her hearthstone. Elsie had one of those fine, rich, im• pulsive sutures, that especially require judicious training. This she had never received fr m her grandmother, and the under current of sell will and pride in her curly girlhood, only revealed themselves in her impntrence of mild reproof and con tradictnn. But usually she was so loving, so gen• tle, so transparent—and, us I said, her future must tell her past. Two years had gone swiftly, happily by, Mr. and Mrs. Raymond sat at their breakfast table that morning. The room l i with its applicances of taste and luxury. was one of those rare home gems that on ly an artist can appreciate. 'Alden,' says Mrs Raymond, as she passed the second cup of coffee, 'won't you put down that paper and listen to me a moment. You know that party you promised me almost a year ago. Well, I've decided to have it next week. It's just the season for it now, and we'll make a grand effort to have it pass off well.' If Mrs. Raymond had at that moment looked narrowly at her husband's face, she would have seen it grow pale at the mention of the party. •I'm sorry, Elsie,' he commenced, mo , vino; restlessly on his chair. 'Now, don't,' interrupted the little wife quickly,'don't, Alden, say one word a gainst the party. for I've set my heart on having it. I told the Campbells, and the Wildinans about it, more than two weeks ago, so I should die with shame to post pone it.' You shouldn't have mentioned it to them without consulting me first.' Mr. Raymond's tones were cold and gevere for the first time, but his wife would have for. given them had she guessed the anguish that lay at his heart. As it wns, her face flushed with anger. 'Really,' she answered, was n 0.., until this morning, aware I was responsible to you. Mr. Raytnonl, for the subjects I might choose to select for conversation with my acquaintances. Once for all, what is the reason you refuse mo this party ?' .1 do not refuse it, Elsie, I only ask you to delay it.' 'And I must and will have it next week or never. I cannot see why you wish me to postpone it, unless IL be because you know the delay will greatly annoy me.' The young man's face flushed with the pain her words occasioned him. 'Elsie,' and his voice was quicker and sterner than before, 'you cannot move me by these ac cusations, because you know as well as I do there is no truth in them. I have some heavy payments to meet this week, and that alone was the reason of my request ing you to defer the matter All I have to say is you will be quite likely to accom plish your wishes by presenting them in a less dictorial manner. It was very unfortunate for Mr. Ray mond that he added to his explanation that last remark, for now he assigned a motive for the delay, his wife had began to soften toward him, but that last speech hardened it aria. " LIBERTY AND UNION, NOW AND FOREVER, ONE AND INSEPARABLE. " don't believe a word of what you're saying, Alden Raymond,' she answered, pushirpz back her choir, and bursting into a good of pdssionate tears. 'lf the money had made any difference, you'd have told me oefore this day ; and it's only because you want to mortify me now before the world, that you are stingy this morning.— I wish that I was back again in my old home with grandma, and near old Daisy. who would never have spoken to the harsh cruel words you have just done. I wish I was back there again, and that I had nev er left it for, and that I had never seen you Alden Raymond r And springing froin her seat, the lady burst out of the room, and her husband made no effect to detain her Ho only leaned his head on his hand, and groaned deeply. It was the last drop in his cup of bitterness. An hour after the young merchant was walking up and down his counting•room with restless step and haggard face. There had come a sudden revolution in the mercantile world. and his house was one of the first to feel it. 'There it no chance to sail clear of this, that I see,' murmured the young man, as he struck his forehead. 'A few weeks, and we shall all sink, I shall be a ruined man, and El sie—' his face worked fearfully a moment and then he resumed, 'there is no way to raise the money, unless—' he stared anx iously all about him; as though he feared the terrible secret which lay behind that 'unless' !night have revealed itself, though it had never crossed his lips and for the first time in his life his face wore a look of co .iardice and guilt. 'Yes, I could get it so,' he said, 'clinic, his head on hands; sand if our alfaira should happen to take a favorable turn, could repay the note before any body was wiser ; 'if not,' and his voice grew li - oar,e. 'the river or a pistol shot would settle it all.' 'Elsie's little property's ail swallowed up too. God knoWs I meant to secure it to her, but there was help for it, and were she to know this she'd hate eta worse than ever, and may be I can win une of the old love smiles to her sweet iips if —' he did not finish the sentence. 'Elsie, pm, you can give out the invi tations for your party next week There is the mon ey which will defray the earn nos, and Mr. Raymond placed a note for a thousand dollars in the lap of his wife. It wits dinner time, and Elsie lii.d all the morning to reflect on her conduct iit break• fast, and bitterly had the yew,: wife re proached herself fur the unkind words she had spoken. • But her will teas unsubdu• ed still, and when the forastps of her hut_ band rang through the hall, the old pride wine back to her heart, the morning curl to her rosy lip and she thought to hersll 'Alder. shall speak first.' And he did : and that generous deed overcame at once all the pride and self will of the really loving wife. She sprung up quickly, and wound her white arms around her hushand's neck while the thers of remorse and tenderness swept down her face. .01i, Alden.' she said 'forgive me for the cruel words I said to you this morning. I have been sorry for them. Ido love you better than all the world beside, and I would not leave you for a thousand grandmothers. Fay just once to me, 'Elsie, I forgive you; and I will be so happy ' He drew her head to his bosom, and he rained down kisses on her tweet brow, us he said, •Elsie, once and for forever I for give you, but I have been very weak, and I have suffered much this morning. Let me lay inv head in your lop, and see if I shall leel better while you talk to me.' And Elsie sat there a long time, running her little dimpled fingers through the thick brown curls of her husband and laying her cool lip every few moments to his fe vered fore head chatting to hint in sweet humming.bird style, of her party, and what a delightful affair it would be, dream ing little of the darkness., and sin, and and shame that was diwing closer and i closer to their threshold. It was late in the morning after the par. ty. It had been, as the young wife had predicted, 'a brilliant affair.' And now she walked through the ele- gant confusion of her parlors, and thought what glances of administration had follow ed her during the evening, and how proud 1 Alden would be when he rucouoted to him the compliments which the guests had bestowed upon their beautiful hostess and how she hod inadvertently heard Mayor llnmlin, who ties pronounced the most artistic judge in the city, call her 'the rare blossom of the festival.' But these pleasant droamings experienced a rude n to rrapt:nn. HUNTINGDON, PA., WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 27, 1858.

CREOSOTE A CURE FOR DYSENTERY The Nashville (Tenn.) of illedicane unit Surgery ciuudiuv on article on 'he above subject, by J. W. Brown. NI.

Arknesas, and N..rtn Lnuisi ina. and in some localities the mortality is fright ful. Dm McGrath and %Vedder of Louis. vale, Arkansas, informed him that they hod treated three hundred cases of the most aggravated form with succe a. by the us. of creosote, and in every case in which it was given, (if not delayed too long.) a marked improvement took place. The following is the formly used by these gentlemen; Creosote, ten drops ; acetic seta, twenty drops; sulphate of morphine, two grains—all miard in on o unce of distilled water. A teaspoonful of this is given every three or lour hours to adults ;• smaller doses are given to chili dren, in gum arobic mucilage. Drs. Mc- Grath, and Weiider consider it nearly, if not entirely, a specific in dysentery.
