A. Romantic And Pathetio Story of Real
'Nu! 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
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

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

"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

r rated above, removed to this country

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.

now on his way to his native home, with

ing the sad events which had occurred in
the meantime,. immediately accompanied
the sister to her home in Illinois, and, af

he started with her for England, in order
to repair, as far as possible, the mischief
which had been done.

A Mule Bewitched.
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
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
'What are you lying about,' continued
the mule, •you know you had toe fifteen

Some years snore or less of a life to which

leprosy is supposed to be produced partly
by exclusiue diet of salt fish, and partly by

the wonderful curse which falls upon
these beastly habits of life.'

A Monizu's TEAit —There is SI touch
ing sweetness in a mother's tears, when
they fall upon the face of her dying babe
which no eye can behold without imbibing
its influence. Upon such a hallowed
ground the foot of profanity dares not ap
proach. Infidelity itself is silent, and for
bears its scoffings. And here woman dis
plays not her weakness. but her strength.
It is that Strength of attachment which can
never, in its full intensity be realized. It
is perenial, dependent upon no climate, no
changes—but alike in storm and sunshine
it knows no shadow of turning. A father
when he sees hi, child going down to the
dark vally, will weep when the shadow of
death has fully coins over him ; and the
lost parting knell falls on his ear, he may
say, go down to the grave of my son
mourning.' But the hurry of business
drives him ilea) , ; the tear is Wiped from
Iris eye, and if when Ito turns from his fire=
side, the vacancy in the family circle rd . -
minds hint of his loss, the succeeding day
blunts the poignancy of his grief, until at
length it finds no permanance in his breast'
