Some days since a young couple who
had newly donned hytuenial vestments,
came from their home, a pleasant village
in this State, to spend a portion of that
supposed-to-be delicious period known as
the honeymoon, and placed themselves un
der the charge of the proprietor of the
Spencer House. They then sallied forth
to witness the beauties and peculiarities of
Queen City, and . do as brides are ever I
wont, it quantity of the little business em

were gone several hours and did not re. I
turn to the hotel until after sundown, quite
fatigued with their exchions. The bride,
Mrs. H., then found that she had forgotten
some articles indispeneible to her toilet,
and uneelling to disturb. her husband, win
she knew must be weary, slipped out
while he was down stairs, and went up to
Fourth street to get the fliminutive bundle.

store and the article, but on her way each,

that was tl.e , lSpencer,",to which, he, fail.,

i motive. She then ordtired him to bring i
1 her the key to No. 48, which he did, and 1
she entered it, and retrieved her bonnet,
shawl, and other porticns of her attire, and
crept between the sheets of the bed to en- i
joy - a little nap after her long walk, never
dreaming she wits hi ti.e ',tong hiouse, for
the reason that the npartmmtit happened to
have the same position,, and be furnished
very much like her room 'tt the ' Spencer."

tie entered quietly, and as a total darkness
removed 'llls garments and crept into the
spaoious double bed, not disturbing in the
least the fair bride who lay near the wall.
How long the two reposed side by side,
with only a foot of space between the-.n,
all unconscious of the other's presence, is
not exactly known, but probably an hour,
when tremendous noise was hoard in the
apartment from which female screams
issued wildly, piercingly and ceaselessly.
The hotel was in an uproar; proprietors
clerkB, waiters, porters and guests, dressed
and half-dressed, were at the door of ,•for
ty eight" in a few nunutes, blocking up the
entrance; arid asking each other eagerly,
""What's the mutter I" "For God's sake,
tell-us what is the trouble I"
The cause of this outcry may be ima
gined. The bride had awakened about
midnight, and :inning her hand over her
husband it fell upon the Inlianian's face,
and the soft, warm touch aroused him at
once. Ile did not understand it exactly,
though he did not dislike it, and in a inn•
ment more Mrs. R. said : "•My eearest
husband, whore have you been all this
"Husband," echoed the merchant, be-
ginning to see, like Lord Tinsel, that he
had , made a small mistake here ;" "I am
nobody's husband. I reckon, my dear
ninclnin, you're in the wrong bed."
‘ln' the wrong bed—horror of horrors,
thought the bride—what would her liege
lord, what would the curious world say'?
And Mrs. R. screamed, and Hwang from
her couch just as tier companion did the
same: He was fully at much alarmed as
the, and entreated her to give him time
and he would leave the apartment, altho'
it was the one he had engaged—he'd make
I oath to that.
Scream, scream, was the wily reply to
his kindly proposition.
"My God, Madam, don't ye II so ! you II
wake the house. Be reasonable : I swear
it's only a mistake. Have rota,. thought
of :he consequences. I don't coot to
hurt you-1 swear I don't. You'll get
me shot and yourselP—well, I won't say
The screams increased, and the poor In
dianian, expecting every moment to see a
pistol thrust in his (ace by a jeattleuti hue•
bond. turned an pale as death, which he
expected, and resigned himself to his fate.
Just at this juecture, the throng outside
presented itself at the door, and beheld
Mrs. R, cowering in one corner, exerci•
sing her lungs magnificently, with a sheet
wrapped over her form and head, and the,
Indianian in the middle of the room, en
veloped in a coverlet, ejaculating, "My
God, Madam ; don't!"
The junior proprietor, Dr, Cahill, saw
there must be some mistake, and, request.
ing the others to retire, called the mor
chantout with him into another room, and
there learned the whole story. Phe Doc•
for then sent one of the ladies of the ho
tel to Mrs. R., and the entire affair was ex
plained, greatly to her relief—though she
was overwhelmed with confusion at a cir
cumstance which might have ruined her
reputation forever.
Under the escort of the Doctor, she was
conveyed to the "Spencer," where:the hus
band was found pacing thecorradors with
frantic mien 4nd half-crazed with grief at
the moiterious disappearance of his wife,
whom he believed had been spirited away

One of the most wonderful achievements
of astronomers to the weighing of the no

the 111116 H Of Jupiter is more than 822, and,

—so accurately has this work been accom.

dines greater than that of the earth and
moon, and 700 times greater than the uni
ted messes of all the planets.
The planet Saturn is composed of mat.
tor only half as heavy as water; Mercury
is considerably heavier than quicksilver,
and a third heavier than lead; and our own
globe is twice as heavy as common rock,
and half as heavy as lead—a fact which
shows tho great density of eternal parts.
A flash of lightning on the earth would

says : "I have ascertained that between

The circumference of the earth is 25,-

I cannot follow, stop by step, our journey

A Flea under a Micrscope.
When a flea is made to appear as large
as an elephant, we can see all the wonder
ul parts of its formation, and ar- astonish •
ed to find that it has a coat of armor much
more complete than ever warrior wore,
and composed of strong polished plates,
fitted over each other, each plate cov
ered like a tortoise sheal, and where
they 'elect hundreds of strong quills pro
ject like those of the porcupine or hedge•
hog. Th ore are the arched neck, the
bright eyes, the transparent cases, the pie

six long-jointed legs, four of which ate
folded on the breast all ready, at any mo

force forth it jump which bother one when
they want to catch him, and nt the end of
each leg hooked claws, to enable him,
to cling to whatever he alights upon. A
flea can jump a hundred times his own
length, which is the same as if a man jam
ped 700 feet; and he can draw a load 200
times his own weight.

MONSTER CANNON. The construction
of n monster piece of ordnance has been
projected by the Secretary of War, which
will probably be cast at !he Fort Pitt Works
in this city. It combine, some of the fea
tures of both the , Dahlgreen" and "C' 1-
ninbiaci" gene. and is calculated to do ex
ecution at four miles. It is to be of fifteen
inch calibre. with a diameter of 'twenty
eight and a halt inches nt the' muzzle, for
ty-seven inches at the breech, and en ex
treme length of fifteen feet. The ball will
weigh between four hundrqd and four
hundred and fifty pounds, requiring an
enormous charge of powder. The estima
ted weight of the gun is between twenty
five and thirty tons. Such n piece of ord
nance, placed on the hill back of Sawniill
run, would demolish every building in
the Arsenal at Lawrenceville, that distance
being about its effective ratige, Itwili

Correct Speaking•—We advise young
people to acquire in early life the habit of
using good language, both in speaking and
writing and .o abandon as early as possible
any use of slang words or phrases. The
longer they live the more difficult the RC
quisidon of such language will be ; and if
the golden age of youth, the proper season
for the acquisition of language be passed
in its abuse, the unfortunate victim of ne
glected education is very probably doomed

Simple Mode ofAsoertaining Interest•
A non method of computing interest on
any number of dollars. at six per cent..
which appears simple :
Multiply any given number of dollars oy
the number of stays of interest desired,
seperat the right hand figure, and divid.
ing by six ; the result is the true interest
of such sum fur such number of days
six per cent. This rule is so simple and
so true, according to all business usage
t hat every banker, broker, nterchant, or
clerk should post it up for reference and
use. 'There being no such thing as a
fraction in it, there is scarcely any liabil
ity to error or mistake. By no other ari
thmetical process can the desired informal
tion be obtained with so few figures.
