Ulevt;land HcraW relates the fol lowing affecting narrative, which is rep• resented to be no Ices true titan strange:— ~W e yesterday learned the denounce ment of a painful story. equal to the most thrilling rename() in interest, but with the circumstances and actors of which we were personally well acquainted. I'Sonie twelve years ago, two young men, named Clyma nod Paul, lived in a small village not fat from the Feu coast, in the extreme west of England. Got h were miners and workers in the same mine near the village. Both paid their address es to the same maiden, though not with equal success. elynia prospered so well in his suit that a day was appointed ler the nuptials, and in due course the bands of marriage were asked in the village church on the first of the three Sundays 1 1 prescribed by the English canon law, "Before iho second Sundaycame round the rivals met at a . vv rattling match in the village, and it chanced that the turn came for theta to wrestle together Paull was excited and endeavored to give his success ful rival in love a 'wicked fall,' but his eagerness worked his defeat. no was thrown to the ground amid the shouts of the villagers. On springing to his feet, he swore that he would be and that Clynia should never ma rry his niten • ded bride. From that day ho tonic to drinking deeply, and hurled imprecations on his rival. 'The day before that fixed for the mar riage. Paull told all his itcquaintences that he wonld be at the wedding. and would find means to prevent its taking Knowing his determined character, Clytna appeared alarmed at the threat, and got some friends to into:cede with Paull, but in vain. "Late that night, Clyma loft the house of his inteneed bride for his own cottage. The way lay across U patch of barren moor, where there were several pine shafts which had been deserted, and the bot.oins of whose black depths were now covered with several fathoms of water. About the same hour, Paull was seen crossing to the same patch of moor I room another di rection. A miner, who passed a little la- ter toward the mine where he worked—it being his iu n for night work—averred, the next day; that he heard a noise, as if of a dispute and scuffle, but it was to dark to distinguish any one. "Tile marriage was to take place ut 11 " LIBERTY AND UNION, NOW AND FOREVER, ONE AND INSEPARABLE. " o'clock in the morning at ten village church Long before teat hour the village was the scene of-great excitement, The hat and nee kerchief of paull—the latter torn and bloody—bad been found near the deepest of the nbandoned pitshafts, and of Paull himself nothing could be !bend. nor had he been seen since he went towards the moor on the preceding night. The ground where the • articles had been found bore traces of a scuffle having taken place, and to crown the whole, two buttons recogniz ea as belonging to Clyma's coat were dis covered ionoung the earth and stones. To those ominous facts elyina could only re ply that he hail met Paull nt the place mentioned, during• the night; that high wordi were Mowed by a scuffle; and that ho had beaten Paull, who had retired cur sing him "'Phi:, account was not considered sat• isfactory. and %yam was taken into cus tody to await further develofments. Sev eral days passed away; an examination was made of the pit and the surrounding locality, but no trace could be found of the body. It Wits argued, however, 'that if a stone was auac hed to the body before it was thrown into the pit, so as to sink it there would be no probability of its ever being found. After several examinations before a magistrate, the neared was re leased front custody, but only to be -shun: ned as a murderer by the whole commu nity. "In the meantime the intended bride became sick though excitement; a violent fever was succeeded by a wasting illness, and after lingering some months, she died of a broken heart. These accumulated ills were too touch for the unhappy object of general suspicion, and in less than twelvo months after what would have bee his wed ding day, he became the inmate of an in sane asylum, %%here he still remains a hepeless lunatiC. "Amoung the relatives of Clytna was a ter, married to a farmer who, two or t -ree yt ars after the unhappy occurrence r rated above, removed to this country ',bout ten days since this sister, while!ai,i. taking the cars in Chicago for home, suddenly encountered the sop• posed murdered non. tier excitement was.intense. drawing him to one tide, she made herseliknown to Paull, and was immediately recognised by him. 6 The explanation given by him of his dvappearance was that he had met Clyma on the eventful night with the purpose of beating and disfiguring him so that he could not marry on the succeeding day, bat that his rival was more than a match fur hint. Burning with rage at his dis• comfiture, he had rushed off without know ing or caring what became of himself, and on reaching the Reach, had taken nu old leaky boat and pulled directly out to sea. Next morning. when the boat was nearly sinking, he was picked up by an mtwartl bound ship, which took him to New Or. leans. Since then be had resided several yearn i California and in the United Sta. :es, anti become moderately :MI, and was now on his way to his native home, with which he had maintained a communica tion since his abrupt departure. On lest n ing the sad events which had occurred in the meantime,. immediately accompanied the sister to her home in Illinois, and, af ;er the necessary arrangements were made he started with her for England, in order to repair, as far as possible, the mischief which had been done. "They passed through Cleveland last evening on their way east; aed happening accidently to meat them at the depot, we learned the sequel to the sad story, with the earlier portions of which we were al readt• acquainted. They go sun joyful, yet mournful er rand. The good name of the unhappy cendenmed can be reclaimed, but none can restore his shattered reason, or rescue the 'broken-hearted dead front her early gin ye." GOOD ANECDOTE.

The popular idea seems to be.that the long eared tribe have been deprived of the power of speech since the days of Ballwin, but we had this morning ocular and auri cular proof of the fallacy of this belief.— As we were coming down Bond street; we noticed a little this side of the Planter's Hotel a crowd collected around the wagon of a countryman, and stepped up to learn if possible the cause of the excitement there, Tim wagon was drawn by a couple of mules, one of them a rather bad-looking specimen, who seemed to hail front a re gion where corn and oats aro rarities; the other decidedly batter looking, and giving unmistakeable evidence of having been better fed. The wagon was loaded with the delightful esculent—se popular in the South—tweet potatoes. Prominent in the crowd we noticed a little black eyed, gray. haired man, who was busily engaged when we come up, in negotiating a trade for one of the mules, and strange to say, for the poorest looking one. 'Now, my friend,' said the little man, want this . mule, I have a firsi-rate match for him, and want to make out the pair.— Ho, old in he'?' 'Five years old last spring,' promptly re. plied the countryman. 'Cully, what a hu! cried the mule, prick ing up his ears. Countryman started—the crowd looked frightened, and ono or two colored gentle men incontinently fled, as if the devil were of the party. 'Who—who was that V asked the dealer in potatoes at length, having somewhat re• covered his voice and senses. .Why me,' promptly respohded the mule. 'What are you lying about,' continued the mule, •you know you had toe fifteen years There, my friend,' said the little man, m, s " u ' l 1.., '" . " 1 " to hi ‘l . ll be darned if I know what to make of you or the mule,' exclaimed the CUM, trytnan, know he is only five years old for I raised him myself,' There, you he again,' said the mule "Take that,' exclaim,' the now infuria ted owner, forgetting his fear for a mo% meat, and striking the animal over the mouth. 'Don't do that again.' cried the mule, will kick you!' The countryman's eyes almost popped out of hit head, nod there is no telling what would have been the result,,had nut some 0110 arrived, who recognized the little man it, Signor Blitz, the well-known Nla gician and Ventriloquist, whioh explained the mystery and relived the countryman— .artguNta Dispatch. A Good One, An old 'tar,' noted fur his natural geni us in the art of lying—in fact he hod be come the subject of proverb—a sort of a Tom Pepper. Every person he met was sure to get a "stretcher" from him before he left him go, One day, as an eccentric merchant, who had always 'got ft lie out of old Jo.' as he was in the habit of saying, saw Jo en route fur his lodgings. lie hailed old Jo with a 'good morning„ Squire.' .Quod, morning, sir,' said Jo:. •1 have been looking, for you ell the mor. thing,' said the merchant.

But instead of seeing Squire C— Wrapped up in white linen, us he expected, he found him iu the garden, hoeing his potatoes. Just I then he saw the point I—and with double quickstep, struck a march for home. He arrived just in time to miss the city train. That evening lie received a communim tion that ho had been non-suited. Poor 1 fellow t p 5 gone one "soaker" and no thing in return, save the prospect of flue weather. Condensed History of Steam. About two hundred and eighty pears B. C. Elero of Alexandria formed a toy which exhibited some of the powers of steam, and was moved by its powers. A. D. 450, Anthemius. an architect, ar ranged several chauldrons of water, ouch covered with the wide bottom of a leathern tube which rose to a narrow top, with pipes Extended to rafters of the adjoining build ing. A firo was kindled beneath the caul drons, and the house t‘ns shaken by the efforts of the steam in ascending the tubes. This is the first notice of the power of steam recorded. In 1543, Juno 17, Blasco C.Garoy tried a steamboat of 200 tons with tolerable suc cess at Barcelona, Spain, It consisted of a cauldron of boiling water, and a movable wheel on each side of the ship. It was laid aside as impracticable. A present, however, was made to Garoy. The first idea of a steam engine in Eng land was in the Murquis of Worchester's II istory of Inventions, A. D. 1603. In 1710 Newcomen made the firat steam engine in England. In 1718 patents were granted to Savory for the first application of the Steamlin- In 1764 James Watts made the first per fect stearwengine in England. In 173 G Jonathan Hulls set forth tier idea of steam navigation. In 1778 Thomas Paine first proposed this application in America. In 1781 Marquis Jouflroy constructed one on the Soone. In 1785 oyo Atncricnns published a tv prlc on it, In 1759 William Symington made a voy age in one on the Forth and Clyde Canal, In 1802 this experiment was repeated. In 1787 John Fitch of Philadelphia. na vigated n boat by a steam engine oh the Delaware: In 1783 Robert Fulton first began to op. I lly Isis aiwntion to steam.

AN ARKANSAS WEDDING, Arkansas ! the State of • II the South ern confederacy worst ridaen by dema• gogues and politicians. Rich in her soil and mineral Wealth, and poorest in every thing like internal improvements and commercial facilities of all kinds. Her public roads are piginires, and her rivers' innocent of any improvement save those afforded by nature. Jogging along over one of these self a= roads, I broke nay 1 buggy trying to drive round a suspicious spot where some philanthropist had erect ed a hickory sapling, bearing the °mai cious words : "NO BOTTOM HERE." Delayed and bvntghted, I at last reach ed a log house, whose blazing tire-light !bra' the open door promised comfoit, and ll' I guessed Latva, some half•dozen her :es hitched at the gate indicated that some thing was going on. I hailed ; Ilaluo, w ho lives here ?' g Ale, Bob Woods. What do you ,vaw. 'Supper and lodging, if you can accom mediae me.' This brought Bob Woods to the gate, where he proceeded to inform me that his darter Melindy was about getting married but he'd us lief make a dollar as not, of I'd feed my horse myself and sleep on a corn husk shake down afore the fire. I jump ed at the offer, and out of my buggy fed washed toy hands and went in to see the fun. I was made at home in a moment. The idea of an 'Orleett feller' currying and feeding his own horse, was • something emir tly new, and I was a fa vorite instanter. guaranteed by a promi nent invitation to 'liquor.' Ihe parson hubibbed, drew an enormous red bandana across his lips, and and announced that .he was ready to talk when the rest was.' This brought forth the happy couple. The groom was a lanky specimen in home spun, and led his bride by the hand. She .vas a bouncing, rosy-ceheeked damsel, iollowing a step or two behind : foiling Qv idently in a novel position. 'You Melitidy take your finger out of your mouth.' Me lindy cast a defiant look at her maternal relative, withdrew the offending member wiped it on her apron and quickened her pace. The young parson, alter some lit ' do trouble, ..rranged them to his saasfac• lion• and proceeded : 'John Stribnor, do you take Melindy Woods, in the the presence of these wit nesses, to be your lawful wedded wife ?' 'That's wot I'm here for,' answered Mr. Stribnor, craming his hands into his breeches pockets. .You will pleuse answer yes or no.' .Yes or no, promply returnee the gen tleman. .No, no! soy yes.' a.s, then casting a sheepish look around him. , Nlelincly Woods.' .Y.a s 'Wait a moment, please.

'Thou in the pressnco of the witnesses spoken, of, I do declare you Irian an' wife, 'cordin to the laws of Arlcansaw an' tlie G'ospili an' root's thus jined let no man put in sunder,' The Parson turned awny, flushed and excited, but was recalled by a query from Mr. Stribner.

Right hero ofore folks John did not argue the point, but sidled up to thn grinning group where [ was standing, and proposed that us boys should take some (whislcey,) Nleen while I herd Melody's triumphant voice among some of he• companions. 'Kiss ! humph ! Jawn's turned fool I blieve.' I slept on the corn husk shakedown afore the fire sour.dly that night, being separated from the bridal apartment by a curtain extemporized for the occasion. From behind its Lids I heard 'Jawn's' re monstrating voice, followed by a host of living apologies from Melindy for the re fused kiss. I'll take my 'affydavy' that he received that mu a hundred fold, with interest.

Lopern, 13yard Taylor, on his way to Bergen, in Norway, says :—.We took on board lour or live lepers, on, their way to the hospital at Bergen. A piece of oil cloth had been thrown over some spars to shield them front the rain, and they sat on deck, avoided by the other passengers, a melancholy pic• I tore of disease and shame. One was a boy of fourteen, upon whose war, like ex crescenees wore beginning to appear while a woman who seemed to be his mother, Wan hideously swollen and gisfi'gured. A man, crouching down with his head be tween his hands, endeavored to bide the semied and knotted mass of protruding blue flesh which had once been a human face.— '('he forms of leprosy, elephantsia• , ors, and kindred diseases which I have seen in the East and in the tropical coun• 'tries; are not nearly so horrible. For these unfortunates there was no hope.— Some years snore or less of a life to which they could look forward. No cure has yet been discovered for this terrible dis• ease. There are two hospitals here one of which contains about five hundred pa bents, while the other, which has recently been erected fob the reception of cases in in the !learner stages, who may be subject ed to experimental courses of treatmen t has already one hundred This form or leprosy is supposed to be produced partly by exclusiue diet of salt fish, and partly by want of personal cleanliness. The latter is the test probable cause, and one does not wonder at the result after he had a lit tle experience of Norwegian filth. It is the wonderful curse which falls upon these beastly habits of life.' or The vot. in Maine for the Prohib itory Law is about 35,00 ; fur the License nw, 1000. A very light vote. VOL. XXIII.
