Ido not, by this, wish to con• rey the idea that there is anything p-cu liarly.uncommon about uc or our house— only that we r,-,:dc in an aristocratic pon. lion of the town, and consider outs at the whole, ratLor a srlect eet, however select a company may 1,, the fact thi+t they are select is not an infal lible proof that nothing disreputable, can occur among LlDmi 'lbis has been especially proven in our cate. We have just been deepiS , agitated, excited--shocked! Happily for the rei,u- Lotion of our place, the ulluir of which I speck had a-gratifying termination. In our boarding house resides an in veter aie old bachelor named Wigley. Mr. Wig. ley in by no means such 'a person as some people invariably represent old bachelors to be, neither in appearance nor disposition He is a pprtly, middle-aged, good-natured, fundovilig, sortable fellow, nod likes the society of ladies fur better th-in three fourths of the married men. Mr, and Mrs. Piekleby are also of our comphoy ; the for. titer a commission merchant, is a very quiet and a very respectable sort of a inr.n; ex ceedingly fond of his rife, and, withal, a little inclined to ivalOUßy ; the latter is a beautiful and afrectionate cr,ature, 10110 doles upon her husband, and iso't jealous at all. One day loot week, Miss Celestia Nobbs —anothur of our boarders, and at maiden lady of thirty fire or thereabouts—he,rd a noise in the- hall b and stepplng oat of her stmt....mem, ..he homed nor the ban nisters, to see want wan the cause of it.— ,:ht distended her rtoelr-liko neck to its ut most limit, and listened with breathless int,rt,t you aro ao:ne!, she heald a she'at imed rilVa4ti2ed h Mrs. exclaim; and the next moment 411 saw 'thnt lady pass beneath her to meet a gendeman, of whom sh, coahl get but a prtial view. Then a loud Liss was giros, and Mrs. Pickle by said, in somewhat lower tone of voice : , Cents with me—come to sty toots ; it r. Picktell is at his office, and l am alone.' Then, both started to ascend the stair,, tad Miss Nobbs hastened to withdraw in to her room, but not before she had caught abetter glimpse of the Iran with Ira. Pickleby, and discovered, as she thought, no other than Mr, Vigley. Ti,' •nt!e tnan had been itbscot , .try for tree!;, nod she ,had seen tan , on his re turn, net more .than no hour previous, en. ter the house., . Miss Celosti a Nobbs is one of those pure ,tial immaculate things, the chi desire of whose hearts it is th it nothing sinful shall occur on earth, and who, feeling tiler:wives to be spotless philanthropically, as they scent to imagine, spend their time in prying Into the affairs of wilier people, and dicta ting to th .an the course they should pur sue. ! La !' sa,d the spioSter, as she clos ed the door of her room, and walked on tip-toe to n beal—`it's come to this, has it? I always thought there., was something store than everybody knew going on be tween the two.' She sat for hull an hour in deep medita tion upon the matter, and then she arose and moved toward the door. 'lf the wicked, shameless creatu re thinks said hiss Nobbs to herself-- , if she has the faintest idea that such actions will be suf fered in this house, she will find herself mistaken, I can assure her.' She heard footsteps without, and as she passed into the hall, she Paw Mr. Wigley descending the stairs, and heard hno leave the houscl. 'Left her, have you 1' she uttered under her breath. 'Well, well, I never expected to see such things going on—never ! But you'io found out—you'll known—both of you She hastened to the room of Mks Dobbs on the floor above. Miss Dobbs is a con fidante of Miss Nobbs, a few years older than herself, and a few degrees thinner in person. Mi-is Nobbs was gratified to find Mrs, Briggs in company with her friend on this occasion. Mrs, Briggs, I may as well state, is a widow lady of some twelve years standing, who had long endeavored it is generally believed by nearly all the house—to captivate and en t rare, in the tt inesheof matrimony, Mr. Wiley. 14iiss•Nobbs sinned tnyiteriossly, us site ettolll. iind carefully closinr the doer. she seated herself ',side her friends. am glad to find you together,' she said, 'fort have a thing of the greatest im portance to make knoWn! •Do tell,' exclaimed Miss Dobtt, with an eager air— , what is it ?'

You don't say r ntt,•red Miss Dobbs, 'Shocking!' exclaim Al Mrs. Briggs. •True, every word ; I,ut that isn't all; I heard them give a kiss; and .I‘.l re. Pickle. by invited him to her room !' 'Gracious heavens !' ejaculated the lis teners Eialultareously, elevating their hands in horror and supri.se. 'Yes; she told him he was all alori— that Mr. Pickleby w, not at home—and so, they went sir together.

'Our characters are not to be trifled with tints I' exclaimed Miss Nobbs, with a de termined air, 'and this thing inust aot be so frrr d to stop lire !' 'Poor Mr. Pickleby !' sighed Miss Dobbs tats• hint from my heart.' 'A n d en do said the ,idow ; for I dare say he bus not the least suspicion of his wife's perfidy.' 'lle most know ii,' uttered Miss Nobbs, speaking in a low and deliberate tone of voice. , You ar, right—he must know it, but how ?' inquired Ms., Dobbs, must tell hint Will it be priper surd Mrs. Briggs. will be but the performance of a Christinn duty. We must toll •And I, for one, ant ready to go and per• form that duty,' remarked ➢Mss Nobbs, w:th n week and resigned look no if she bad token it upon herself to suffer at the stake, , Aid I,' said tae .01i, I will accompany you ; I am sure I only want to do what is right,' said Miss Dobbs submissively. 'Then lot us go at once.' 'Yes ; the sooner he hen his mind disn• bused in respect to his wife, the better.' Forth, accordingly, the immaculate . trio sallied as soon us they could make the no. cessary preparations, and bent 'heir course toward th, store of Mr. Pickieby, in the loner part of the city. The merchant was busily engaged in the transaction of some business,when he saw the three ladies approach him. He sus pended operations, and inquired what hop. py circumstances had brought them hither. 'lt is a sad errand on which we are come,' saki Miss Nobbs, shaking her head with a melancholy air. 'A dreadful errand!' affirmed Miss Dobbs, dubieu,ly. 'A more dreadful errand you could not imagine' added Mrs. Briggs, making a strong etiert.te shudder. 'For mercy's sake, ladies,' cried the alarmed man, turning pale, 'what is it P 'ln the first place, Mr. Pickleby,' said the first spinster, 'we wish to n ssure you that you bane our warmest sympathies-- that we feel for you.' .Prom the very bottom of our heart,,' added the elder maiden. "And nothing but a deep sense of duty,' remarked the widow, "has induced us to take the step we have, in order t o 'T ir e ,' to you such distressful news." "What is it ?—what is it ?" exclaimed • the merchant, franneall:. .Don't he n; in ,tispense; what hav hal pened P' , Your wife !" uttered Altss Noitbs, in n lign:e.cant Me.

They quietly proceed ed homeward, congratu kting each other that they had evidently the mans of putting down a giant of iniquity. Mr, Wigley has an office on !roadway Mr. Pick Irby, scan after his interview the ladies, wood in the presence of Mr. Wigl v y, who smiled, and offered his hand to the other. Mr. Pickleby, with every expression ut scorn and hate, declined to touch it.. "Permit int to inform yon," :Aid the merchant, alino:t choking with rage, that I know all l Mr. Wigley looked at :he speaker with astonishment. 'Yes, sir," continued tho excited Pick lehy, know all : and I'm not such a pal. try coward as to suffer it to pass with lin punity !" Whereupen, helore the other could ter a word, he gave Mr. Wigley such a blow on the head as to stagger him not tt little, and, before he could recover front the surpr ise, it was followed by another how on thu otheeside of his head, which wade 168 ears ring in a most wonderful manner. This was rather too much for the good nature of Mr. Wigley, and so he nerved himself to the task, and commenced a re raiation. Being nearly double the weight of his antagonist, he soon bad it all his on ri way ;and to be brief, in less than ten minutes, Mr. Pickelby cried loudly for quarters, admitting himself to be as well ' whipped a man as he had encountered. "And now," said Wigley, after helping his adversary to his feet—"now, that our affairs settled, please tell the what t have flogged you for." "For intriguing with my wilts, as you well know," replied the defeated, but j indignant man: a lie !" said Wig ley. '.lt's the truth," responded Piekelby, "ano can provo it." , Yon 'can't - do ii."

As soon as Mr. Pickelby saw him he smiled, and advanced and shook him by the hand. "My brother!" said he, turned those who bad followod him. Miss Nobba face became crimson.

Salutations i►mong Diff'rent Nations. [TRANSLATED FROM 'THE FRENCH.] The expressions used as salutations a rn9riy different rations have under their holmium napect, something characteristic and interesting, even for the most casual oh,erver, ht chi East, som of these ex,:resbions savor, ui a more or lea: chlree, of the Scriptures, and cif thy serer, and patriur. chal sentimein of the inhabitante. One recognizes the immobility of these pastor al and warlike people., standing aloof from all human progress. Nearly all have a foundation in reli,giouS senor nts,and pros peace to thm, to whom they ere ad titation used by the Arab, d dem," or "Shalom," means peace, and i 3 fuund in' the word Jerusalem. The Arab relates his friend thus, "May you have a happy inbruing •`May God grant y,.11 his favori" If God wills it, you are well." This last expression plainly be trays their fanaticism. 'lid Turks have a formula which can only be used in a sunny climate—‘ , May your shadoiv never be less." An English man would never think of wishing a friend a fine shadow. The climate of Egypt is feverish, and perspiration is necessary to 'the health, h e nce the Egyptian, !netting you, asks, E; on do you peat ire ?' 'Have you eaten V 'ls your stomach t 4 good order?' asks the Chinaman ; a touch• ing solicitude, which can only be qp7recias. nal by a nation of gourmands. "Good cheer," says the modern Greek in nearly the same lanklage that the ens -cit nts were 'vont to greet their friends. A charming salutation, which could only have originated among the happy, careless, (3r,elcs, The Romans, who were heretofore robust indefatigable and laborous, had energetic sulutations, expressing force and notion . . ''Solve," "Be strong," "Be healthy;" and , Quid fimias," "What do you?" or "What make your' The Genoese, of modern times, nay, "Health and wealth," which is very appre priaie for an active and commercial peo ple. The Neapolitan devoutly says, "Grow it , sanctity ;" and the Piedmontese, nm your servant." The "hqw stand you 2" of almost nil Italy, forcibly indicates the nonchalance of the sunny land. The Spaniard, grave, haughty and in different wishes you "Goad morning," to which we respond, -at your service, sir." Another salutation which the Spaniard uses, "God be .vith you Signor," shows a melange of respect for one's self nod Tell gious sentiment. . . . . The ordinary salutation of the Germuu is “Wie gelas?"—“How goes it?" and has vagueness partaking somewhat of the dreamy character of the German. To bid one adieu, he says, ''Leber so, wohl"— "Live quiet and happy." This last plainly exhibits his. peaceful 'enure and love for the 'simple joys of life. Ths travelling Hollander asks,"Hoe hearts go?" 'How do you go?" The tho ughtful, active Swede demands, "Of what do you thibk?" whilst the German express'. ion -Live well'--"Live well." But the greeting of the Pole is best of all, , Are you happy?' The English have the "Good Bye," a corruption of the word" God be with you," sub some others; but that which exhibits bent the character of the English is "How &Lynn do?' us the activity of this people is shown in this demand where the do is spo ken twice. Nothing 13 more characteristic, more lively, or more stirring than this'. The"Ouniinent vous portez vous?" of the French is equally characteristic,. The Fre nchman is more active than laborious— more aident, more passionate, then though ful; hence the principle with hill is not to do, but to go to be lively, to show himself, There is something in the expression." Comment vous porter sons?"—'• How do you curry yourself?,—which bespoke :at once his frank limner and pleasant face.
