A short yarn was spun to us last even

milling of a couple of friends of ours, now
or lately sojourn!ng, for health and pleas•
ure at the Talladega Springs. It is unne
cessary to give the names of these gentle
men, but for convenience we will call them
respectively, John and Joel. They, it may
be remarked, have great similarity of
tastes, and among other penchants, are cc

Thus John and Joel —there being no
religious services at he Springs that day
—went out, Sunday efore last, to the 'nill
of Mr. P—, a mile or two down the
creek, with a view to a dinner of small
trout and bream. With them went their
invited guest, Mr. Smith, and "Miles"

'Agreed,' said Joel and Smith
It was short work ; a large pine log lay
at right angles across the carriage of the
mill ; and it was agreed to 'let her rip"
through this. Accordjngly, the gate was
raised and immediately the stillness of 'thii
gratul old woods' was broken by the rapid
sharp strokes of the saw. In a minute
the log was brought up and the saw went
rapidly through.
'Now stop her,' said Joel—and Smith
and John essayed to do so.
But the mill wouldn't be stopped, but
went clattering away. as hard as ever !
'Stop her, John, or by the Lord she'll
split herself in two,' shouted John. But
all the fixtures were obstinate and refused
to yield to the exertions of John and Smith.
On went the saw, while John and Joel per.
Presently the carriage presented some
metallic obstruction to the passage of thu

A Sentimental Robber.
A night or two or two ago, a fair, sweet
girl, residing on Race, rear of Fourth St.,
wns partially awakened from her slumbers
by a man in her chamber, but not fully
aroused, she lay with closed lips for a mi
nute, when, the sound being repeated, she
started up and saw, by the light of the little ,
jet upon the gas-burner, a man's form dis
appearing through the window. She
screamed involuntarily, and her father,
armed with a revolver, was in her room in
a few moments, greatly ajigated and alarm
ed, questioning his loMNaughter us to
this cause of her fear: She told him what
had frightened her, and he ran to the open
window, looked out upon the balcony and
into the yard, but could see nothing of the
terrible man, the midnight robber, and dis
turber of the dove eyed darling's rest .
The parent was disposed to think his dough
ter bad been dreaming, that her iinagina
tiTl 14. .Uir*.e.4.7l.llP.l.WPON9t,Rlitish . hew
seen all she had stated. Her father was
still incredulous, when, in looking around,
he observed upon his daughter's dressing
bureau, where a beautiful enameled watch,
a pair of heavy bracelets, a diamond ring,
and a necklace were lying, a slip of paper
on which was wlitten :
Fairest, Dearest Girl : I came here to
rob, but your beauty has made me honest
for the time. I saw these jewels, but be•
keying them yours, I could not take them.
I have stolen what I value more—three
delicious kisses from your unconscious
lips, Do not be offended; they were gen
tle and innocent.
This story sounds romantic, we are
aware, and perhaps some of our matter-of
fact readers will be skeptical in relation
thereto, but we are assured upon the best
authority that it is strictly veracious, and
we publish it as an evidence that the age
of gallantry and sentiment is not at an
end ; that the race of Rinaldo Rinaldiui is
not extinct-1. 0. Della,

Illysteriois Min' in New York.
[From the New York Courier of July 30.]
A report was current in the city onThurs
day that Mr. John V. James had died very
suddenly and mysteriously at hie residence
N 0.69 Amity street, and that his remain's'
had been conveyed in a clandestine man
ner to Albany, the place of his nativity.
What added still more to the mystery;
was the fact £hat his death waitinnotinced
in the Herald or T , ndav, as having taken
place on Su •. ;ening, when in fact he
was well at that time, and continued ao up
to within a few hours of his deceasei
which took place on Tilestay eierilao
Mr- James had been addicted ro easels in
the use of ardenispirits, and was in the
habit of partaking of powerful medicines.
It is supposed'that he intended ooinmitiog
suicide on eanday riight, and after having
penned a notice of his death' and sent ii
to the Herald, his courage failed bim, and
he posponed the , deed., The following i,
the notice referred to:
'Died.—On Sunday evening, July 25th
Mr. John V. hurley, of Albany." "This
sentence will occasion many a sad heart
among those who kn ew him. He was
one of the kindest and gentlest of human
beings. For the last three years Mr.
Japes has beeo'connected with the Ores,:
The * last lines that ever he wrote were
on the death of his friend, Lieutenant Gas
ton, who fell with Captain Tayloi, of whose
death a feeling and eloquent paragraph
was publihsed in yesterday's Herald. Mr
James was only twenty years of age' of
the time of his death. Hod he only lived
he would haqe made a name for
himself among the where of his cuuntry."
On the morniug subseqent to his death,
a wagon containing a coffin was driven up
to N 0.67 At/my street. 'Phe coffin was
taken into the house, in about fifteen min
utes afterwards brought out, placed upon
the wagon and driven off. The act was
notiord 'oy person, residing in the neigh
' borhoud, and finally came to the knowl
edge of inspector Dilks, 15th Police Dis

The Wheat Crop.
The wheat prop in the several Stater,
may be considered an harvested and par
tially ready for market. We can, there
fore, give the following returns with some
degree of certainty
Mew York—The crop is under the last
year's about fifteen per cent., but the quali
ty is much better.
Perinsy/vanin.—The crop is fully an av
erage one, but ten per cent. lees than last
year per acre.
Maryland--The crop is an average one
but less per acre, and better in quality than
last year.
Virginia •: The wheat crop' in this State
is twenty per cent, lees than last year for
the amount at ground in cultivation, and
the quality not much superior.
North Caralina—The crop in this State
is probably nearer ten iced. (Wine than
in any other. The yield' being fully fifty
per cent. less than last yeh.r, and poor in
Kentucky—The crop is above the aver
age, but less than last year, the quality is,
however, unsurpassed.
Thanessee --'rhe crop is a good one, but
under the average in the yield per acre.
The quality is goad.
Missauri—The amount of the Wheat
crop in this State is not fully known, bin
it will generally compare well per acre
with the other Western States.
Ohio—The yield of wheat per acre is
fully twenty per cent. less than last year,
but from the increase of land in cultivation
the decrease from an average crop will
not much exceed ten percent.
lowa- The accounts front the centre of
the State in regard to the Wheat crop are
very gloomy. The crop will hardly aver
age ten bushels to the acre. Oats are ge.
uerally a failure.
illinois—ln Southern Illinois the yield
of wheut is about a fair average, rather un
der than over. 'I he winter has been gen
erally successful, and spring wheat the re
verse. In other pans of the State the
yield will be over half the usual crop.
Indiana—ln Indiana the yield of wheat
has been from one half to two•thirds on the
average crop.
Minnesota—• The yiela of wheat in this
State is of better quality than UMW, and
in quantity nearly two-thirds the wittal
Michigan—The yield of Wheat in Mi
chigan is over two-thirds an average crop,
and generally of good quality. •
Wisconsia•-•The crop of Wheat is up to
the average, the greater extent in cultiva•
