Nellie - Davis was the prettiest, sweetest,'
best, and dearest little girl in Hillsdale, and
when Torn Carter fell head overheels in

And whet the parson gave consent, and
they went to housekeeping in a cozy, bird
nest of a littleliouse on the south side of
the town, everybody prophesied all sorts of
happiness for the pretty 'Ade. '
And, truth to tell, I , 4ellie Carter was very
iS a very pretty thing to, go to house
keeping for the first time, with everything
spick and span new, and shiny; and if you
have some one you love very much for a
companion it is still pleasanter. '
Now Nellie did love that greatblubber
ing TOm Carter with all l her Might and
main, and there was only one thing to dis
turb her peace. She was the vefy pink of
tidiness, and Tom was the most careless fel
low alive. I
He kept his person neat and nice, hilt be
kept his personal belongings anything, else.
In vain did Nellie braid altlindsothe merino
case, and,tack it inside the ;closet door for
Tom to put his slippers in. Tom would in

"to have 'em bandy." ' In vain did she
gently suggest that the racklin the hall was
the plape - for his hat and overcoat; wet or
dry, he would lay his overcoat on her pretty,
smoothly-made bed, and drop his hat any
In vain did Nellie make a place for eve
rything, for Tom invariably tossed every
thing into some other place. Now little
Mrs. Nellie was only human, and - Tom's
slovenly ways annoyed her exceedingly.—
'She resolved,,not to spoil the peace of their
cozy home by scolding, bit how to cure
m she could not tell.
She bore with him with tie patience of
'an angel, till one morning WI en he had gone
up town she went into the parlor, broom in
hand, and there lay Tom's big shawl right
across the center table, ruthlessly crush;fig
beneath it the trifles that lay' ,on the marbl
"Now, I can't have this, land I won't, t7 '
said she, as she raised the shawl from the
delicate treasure and discovered the , ruins
of a favorite Bohemian vase.
" I don't know what to do, but this I will
not have," she continued, with, a little bit of
wifely snap, which every' gdpd wife must
have. if she expects to get along at all with
that occasionally unreasonable animal, a
" So”ie way must be discovered to cure
Torn of such performances as this!" went on
Mrs. Nellie, as she removed the ruins of the
vase, and all the morning she, went around
at her work with scarlet lipS closely com
pressed, and a little flash in her brown eyes

Before Mrs. Nellie closed her-bright eyes
that night, she had arranged plans for that
campaign against her' iege lord, who slept
the sleep of innocence at her side, -
But she meant to give him one more
chance. So, after breakfast, when Tom
drew on his boots and gave his slippers the
usual toss under the sofa, she gently said:
"Tom, dear, hadn't you better put the
slippers In the case?"
"NO, let 'em alone, they'll ; be handy to

declared Torn, as he gave her a kiss and

And at the moment the door closed on him

She set quietly about her morning's work,
and when Tom came home to dinner every
thing was in its usual -good order. It re
mained so, and Nellie „busied herself with
her sewing until nearly time for Tom to re

Then she arose, put away her work, and
prepared to open the campaign.
First, she put Tom's slippers where be al

tossed the shawl upon the piano, and his

some of her dresses and flung them across

Otarva,tion at Sea.
Mr. ,latatia%Dugan,- who arrived in Itel,v
York from - Sydrul, Cape Breton, yesterday,
gives the, following account ,of a' wrecked
brig which the schooner Lancaster (M which
Mr. Dugan ' Was' passenger) came .up. with
and boarded the - I.9th of September, •
On the right of the 18th a strong head
wind prevailed, At different periods the
captain's attention was drawn to a mysteri
ous object; now off the port, and now oti
the starboard_bow. The hiokouts were con
tinually reporting the black hull that'llept
in sight all the time, until the , captain gave
his opinion that the object seen ahead was
a dismasted and deserted vessel. The Lan
caster, was bound to Sydney, Cape Breton,
from Charlottetown, Prince Edward's isl
and, with a cargo of produce, :and the wind
increased BO Aitrongly before daybreak that
the captain was compelled to order a large
deok load to be thrown overboard in order
to lighten the, vessel.
Just , after dawn the unknown object hove
in eight again; but none of those on watch
could distinctly make out what it was, The
captain however satisfied• himself that it
was an abandoned , vessel. It rang eight
bellsi,and the steward announced breakfast
ready., While atbreakfast the second mate,
Mr. Prior, hultriedtinto the cabin, and ad
dressing himself to the captain; said:
"There's s abandoned hull adrift off tbe
starboaril,quaiter; her spars are gone, and
she looks to hafebeen a brig orbrlgantine."
soon after Captain Martin went on deck
the bull of . a,likrge craft was plainly discern
ible off the - start oard ',quarter, about two
points to the nortlyilat the disman
tled vessel had been deserted — there _VV7I.9 no
question, as the heavy mass was beingloiss
ed about like log. The captain gave or
ders to bear away for the wreck, and at
midday the,sc ooner Lancaster was, broad
side to the ab dolled vessel, It was a well
shaped,' stron ly-built hull, but the bulwarks
and stanchion bad been badly dealt With
by the eleme ts, • and the whole was much

Many of the utensils of the galley were
found, and Otptain Martin made a' strict
search among them to assure himself .whe
ther there had been any food on board at
the tim e of the death of there men. Not a
single remaining pot or vessel of any nature
in the cooking department of the ill-fated
craft contained the least particle of food.—
This discovery seemed to satisfy the cap
tain that all - tin hoard bad Perished' from

ger eipectation and short allowance, to
meet with anybelping hand. The spectacle
on board the 'sepulchral bull - was at least

seemed to sicken at the revolting disclosure,
and an ominous silence seemed to have been
spontaneously determined on by the living
ones who stood among the skeletons of the
It was ascertained that the vessel had
been rigged a b ig. Therhnll bore no name
on its sternpost - On the bowsprit the word
" GlenalvOn ' as barely legible. In the
forecastle, which was almost filled with
water, a most rarthly stench was discov
ered,•and only wo inert could be ,found to
enter and remain long enough inside to re
port what they had seen there. There were
two corpses on the floor, and one stretched
across a "hunk." These• sad relics were
removed on deck, and the nine bodies were
arranged in line and covered in canvas by
the captain's order. _. .
The wheel house had been carried away,
and fastenings of the rudder broken.—
This, as the captain remarked was the work
of some tremendous sea. The foremast bad
been cut away to save the vessel from foun
dering—one of the extremest emergencias
in a hurricane at sea. The jibboom was
gone. and the entire craft, as she then ap
peared, was the most complete wreck Cap
tain Martin bad seen or heard Of in his nau
tical experience of nearly forty years,
Entering-the cabin, a foul odor was dis
covered, bi:at not intense enough to forbid a
thorough investigation. Toward the end of
the steps ldading down to the cabin a fetid
pool of water was seen. and the men had to
wade through it in order to reach every por
tion of the cabin. "Between a stationary ta
ble and a couch the head of a corpse pro
truded from a berth in the-wall. and, when
brought on deck, it was found to he in a
state of .decay.. A buttoned jacket of good
material, blue pantaloons, a flannel shirt
marked " T. F.," and one boot covered the
corpse. The chronometer in the cabin
pointed to 4.30 o'clock; and on the station
ary table was an open Bible turned down
ward, a revolver with two chambers loaded,
and a bottle containing a piece of paper up
on which was written• " Jesus, guide Oda
to some helper. Irreifol God, don't let. us
perish." The wort s were detached, and a
hiatus occurred betlveen every two or three
, id them, which ehoriw e that the writer must
have been in either the lowest stage of de
bility or driven to thadneas by hunger, . In
the captain's stet& room - hie corpse was
found lying bent on ahe door, as though he
had fallen from weakness, *addle struggling,
with faint hoe, to save himself and men.
l On his bed were scattered hooks, papers,
I ite.; but one sheet attracted particular at
' tentien, it was dated
"MARTINIQUE, May 30, 1872.

The ship's regular papery were not found
open, but Captain Martin took in; charge a
neat writing desk found in the captain's
trunk end lucked, There was a slate on the
table in the cabin, which table was covered
.by guards such as are used at meals in rough
lor half an hour after noon,
o eubsided as to admit of the
oat, in which Captain Mar

taln's trunk contained numerous letters.
Toward three o'clock a dead calm pre
vailetVand the boat's company that went
on board the dismal wreck rowed back to
proeure 'something to eat and drink. At
seven p. att., the calm continuing, Captain
Martin proposed to set out" for the ill-fated
vessel again, to perform the sorrowful ser
vices of a burial at sea. For coffins a•quan
tity of old canvas was brought, and rude
WO were quickly formed out of that inate
rini. At 6:80 &clock, the pale moon shin
ing solemnly over that lonely sepulcher of
the sea, a long board was laid upon the
sound portion of the bulwarks, and two
bag s,'to which weights were tied, were laid
down, and rattled as they fell. A lamp
was held by a sailor on each aide of the
tempoTiary hearse, and after Captain Martin
bad read late usual service, the plank was
lifted upward, whereupon the coffin bags
and slfeletons slid into the sea. The cere

that had harbored so many dead, heard so
many dyipg grOans, and such awful roaring
of the wihd end sea that had caused all that
death and destruction. Captain Martin has
procured every clue, all of which
he will give to the authorities at Halifax or
Sydney, so that thetrue history of the ole
?elvon may, be learned.—.N. Y. 2lmee.
A Story of Society.
About f rty years ago an heir was born to
one of th families claiming Brahmin caste
in this co ntry. If any such claim be just,
we might rant It to the traditions, the cul
ture, the thorough breeding of this man's
race. Cu 'ture and traditions and breeding
were 'facts assured to them for so manygen
erationsth t they were the least self-assert
ant of h man beings. Philip, having
reached m nhood, lived with his mother in
the quietest of stately old mansions, on the
quietest stiteet of the gravest of American
cities. The house stood back among cen
tury-old hemlocks and oaks; it held a fair
proportion of the few really fine paintings'
there are in this country; there Were in it,
also, one o i c two fine marbles, and on the
walls som priceiess etchings. The old
faihion. ed r i rms were full of bric-a - brac--
the closets f marvelous china. Philip was
a tall; darpt, lean man, with the erect
carriage and high features of an Indian;
something e had, too, of the gravity and
o the red man. Rook, the liquor
dealer arou d the corner, seeing the fault
less fit of its boots and gloves, and the thor
oughbred grays he drove, sneered at him
every Morn ng for a " bloated aristocrat;"
the colport ur and tract distributor looked
at bric-a-ba and horses and inquired why
these thing were not sold and the money
_given to th l poor. some of us, perhaps, in
bitter mood, watching 'him come out of
church, might have questioned whether he
and his cll
Sfl were not serving God and
Mammon. _ Neither Rook nor colporteur
Understoodhat to Philip paintings,ous surrou dings, and well-fi -luxuri
since 1).1s biqh, bad been common-place ne
cessaries to be assessed or dispensed with as
little as daily air or light.
If Philip was a hero, he had none of the
ear marks IN which that genus of men are
known in nvels or ordinary life. He was
not hilioutti, cynical nor boyishly enthusi
astic;l appar ntly he had never discovered
human natu e to be corrupt or society based
on falsehood and tyranny; he had not evolv
ed from his inneronselousness the ghost of
a theory to Set the Wqrld right; he had nev
er hinted refarin in a book or a lecture, or
even a leading artiele; ; Le was not •ft mem
ber of a society of any sort; his name never
was found on a subseription,,list; the appa
rent tenor of his life was strictly that of his
class; lie read law enough to enable him to
manage his estates; he was a hard, student
in such branebe.s of science as :41ted - his
whimL;his companions were wellbred4nen
and refined, beautiful women; he innt a
keen appreciation of the heat music; lie
went to balls, to the opera,', in winter; be
hunted,' or sailed his yacht in summer. If
any of his compatriots had liken asked for
Philip's story, they might have quoted:—
" Story, God bless you: theta is none to tell,
sir." But few of them noticed the one sin
gular trait inithe man, the entire absence in
his talk or thoughts of all me n tio n o r re
membrance Of himself. Whether the pecu
liarity was hereditary, or whether sonic un
wonted accident had given to him in early
life the second sight, which showed him
how insignificant each human atom was be
fore God and among his fellows, no one
knew; but the result was a quiet, life-long
ignoring of Philip by Philip, as far removed
from conseioXis humility as vanity. " I saw
him mentioned in an English journal as one'
of the first ti;ree chess players in this court-,
try," said on , friend. " I had been intimate
with him ford nine years, and never knew be-'
fore that he understood the,game." "He had
the healthiest, sweetest moral nature I ever
met with,",st id one of the first of our Chris 7
tian teachers 1 " but no titan lever heard him
talk of hls re'ligion or his creed.",
There was Lto be a private concert one
winter's evening, where none but critics and
artists were tp be present. They waited for
Philip, for ho verdict was important to the
debutant; mine than one 'lair fastidious
face, too, turned impatiently to the door,
watching for him. Some one then brought
the word the Philip lay dying; dying of a
foul disease ontracted in visiting a jail.—
The shock o surprise was as great to his
friends as t at of pain, we can easily be
lieve. Thesefair, -delicate women could
tot associate jails and death from foul dis
ease with the Philip they had known. Af
ter he was dOad it was told quietly (people
spoke of Philip quietly, alifre or dead) that
there was _not a jail or almshouse, nor a
purlieu of vice and misery in the city with
/.Ihiflt he la.l not been familiar for years.
How much' of his income had gone to his
poorer brother, only God remembered.
The story is, after all, one of negatives.
Assuredly flap made no mark in the
world, no brut among men as Americans
are taught it s the highest aim of life to do.
But we tell h. a story because we believe this
type among is class of countrymen is not
uncommon, tad in these days, when a man
so easily bey mes his own demigod, it is as'
worth while to suggest it to our boys as
those varnished with cheap glory of adver
tised philanthropy. Nobody would call
Philip's a sUccessful life; the mention elf
him in the inewspapers eren was the brief
est, he dropped silently out of the circle of
his friends; but they who knew him are
startled even yet to find how his memory re
mains, unlike that of others who are dead;
how, remembbring hint, it is eav to d o
right, to take their proper humble place be
fore God and among His creatures• bow he
seems even in the .silence of the grave to
'live with Nature, fulfilling- God's word—

A Lake of Pitch,
l - :ume thirty-six miles south from Port of
Spain lies the famous Pitch Lake, covering
a space of ninety-acres, and containing mill
ions of tons of so-called pitch. It is situa
ted in the Laßrea district, the whole of
which is of bituminous character, much of
the ground looking like en asphalt pave
ment, half overgrown with marsh-loving
weeds, whose roots feed in the sloppy water
overlying the pitch. The whole air is per
vaded with a smell of bitumen, and on ap•
proaching the lake the evil odors grow op
pressive and sickening. The pitch however
certainly does nut injure vegetation, though
plants will not grow actually in it.. La Brea
is famous for ninny kinds et tropical plants.
Pine apples, for ex.aniple, are brought here
to special perfection. They grow anywhere;
clinging to the patches of richi brown soil,
seemingly unmindful of the pitch spewing
out of the earth iirodd wreaths and lumps.
Even on the very shores of the lake itself
are groups of - Moriche fan palms and thick
undergrowths of corcorite.
The surfixce of this Stygian pool, glaring,
and glittering, in the sun, presents a most,
bingular appearance, The black mass of
iviphalt is ,divided by• narrow channels of
clear w ater into hundreds of isolated, patch
es, ab if huge foul blotches were dotted all
over the .9114aCe of x Like of sparkling
tress. Straggling along in the center are a
number of small islands coveted with thick
low scrub, near which is the very fountain
of foulness., the place where the ail halt is
still oozing up. The - pitch here is b.'ellow
and white with sulphur foam; Et) are the
water channels; and out of both water and
pitch innumerable bubbles of gas arise,
smell. • !1
On.. upping.' one's, hand' Into his. liquid
pitch; one istastonigilied to find that it does
not soil the fingers. The old" proverb that
one cannot touch,pitch without being defiled,
happily'does not stand true here, or the
place would be still More loathsome than
now. It may be scraped up and moulded
into any shape you will, but 'nothing is left
on the hand save clean gray mud and water.
It Inv be kneaded for an hour before the
,inud,be sufficiently driven out of it to make
it sticky. I This very , abundance !of earthy
matter it is which, while it keeps ! the pitch
from soiling, makes it far less-valuable than
it would be if it was pure.
It is easy to understand whe4ce this earthy.
matter (twenty or thirty per cent.) comes.—
Throughout the neighborhood the grmind is
full, to the depth of 'hundreds Of feet, of
coaly and asphaltic substances. !Layers• of
sandstone, or of shift containing this decay
ed vegetable alternate with layers Whieli
contain none.' And if, as Seems fprobable,
the coaly, matter is continually !changing
into asphalt and oil, and then working its
way upward through every crack and pore,
'to escape from the enormous pressure of the
superincumbent soil; it must needs carry up
with it innumerable particles of the soils
through which it passes.—Ltarper'.'s Magaz'e.
Wit in Parliament.
Of the vit that can convey reproof with
the keenest sting, 'and yet without giving
offense, unless he who takes it makes it,'
there are numerous examples in ' both -hou
ses. The'very best, or certainly among the
very best of these specimens came, in the
Lorda, from Bishop Atterbury; in' the Com
mons, from Pitt. The former example is
well known, but it will bear recalling to the
memory of those who may have let it slip
from their memorabilia. Atterbury had
-some bill before the Lords, that
he had in a previous session prophesied that
an attempt would be made to bring in this
bill, and he regretted that his prophecy bad
come true.,_ On this, ever-blustering and
blundering ' Conlngsby started to his feet,
.and ridiculed the prelate for. likening . him
self to a prophet. "But, for my part,", said
Coningaby, I don't know what prophet to
liken him to, unless it be to that furious
prophet Balsam who was reproved brhis
own ass." To this, ever cool and self-pos
sessed 'Atterbury replied:
. 1 ' Since the noble lord has discoVered In
our manners such a similitude, I am well
content- to be compared with the prophet
Balsam. But, my lords, lamat a loss how
to make out the other part of the parallel.--
I am sure that I have been reproved by' no
body but his lordship!"
The elder Pitt was as brilliant in the
Commons as he afterward became, when
Earl of Chatham, Jo the Lords. In both
houses he, gave many instances. We take a
characteristic one from the Commons. In
a debate [Mr. Moreton happened to say,
"King, Lords and Commons," adding, as
he looked. at Pitt, '" or,. as the honorable
gentlemanwould prefer to put it—Com
mons, LordS, and King."
Pitt arose. He had often, he -told the
house,. been surprised; now his blood ran
cold. He moved that the words bsi taken
down. The clerk of the house obeyed; and
at the words of Pitt, solemnly / uttered,
" Bring them to me!" Mr. Moretorrfell into
such, a fright that he appealed to the Speak
er, protesting that he had really meant noth
ing. " King; lordS,? commons! commons,
lords,. king! Tria
,juncta in uno. I meant
nothing. Indeed, I meant nothing!" He
looked at Pitt, and Pitt gravely rejoined:
" I don't wish to push the matter farther.
The moment a man acknowledges - his error
he ceases to be guilty. I have al great re
gard Ifor the honorable member, and, as an
instance of that regard, I give him this ad
vice: :Whenever that member - meens noth
ing, I recommend him to say nothing."—
Gentlemon's Fashions in OldOn Times.
In tdl the short-lived splendors lof which
the old chroniclers tell so much, women had
but little part, whether as the wearers or
Makers. ,The first 'milliners were bearded
men. It Was a tailor, not a mantuamaker,
in the modern
,sense of the word,' who took
home, Rathrina's•new gown to the, house of
Petruchio. Nor did the comparatively sim
ple; and becoming attire of the,ledies of feu
dal times Change by any means so often
from the-decorous grace of its original type
as that of their own fickle lords. ,
There is; less difference, sartorially speak
ing, between Queen Eleanor mud Margaret
of Anjou, between Betertgaria and I4abel of
France, than between the men of their re-•
spectiVe times. They seidoin made them
selves sublimely ridiculous, as masculine
vanity so constantly urged the fops of the
period to do. Until we reach the bristling
ruffs and steeple hats of Elizabeth's reign,
there is nothing—unles it be the fantastic
contrast; of colors brou ht in by Henry the
Sixth's imperious consort—to provoke a
smile,' from the daysof the Confessor to
those of the Defender f the Faith.
But the men of thos centuries were ar
rayed as superbly as so many bright-winged
butterflies—flashing with rainbow tints and
powdered with gold. In every household
of any pretension to rank, evenlin those of
the poorer gentry, who groaned over the
fashioner's charges and haggled smartly
with the Chapman who sold the wares, a
large slice of the family income was devo
ted to clothing his head. Andl not merely
vanity and ostentation, but the gregarious
instinct which we share with sheep, pushed
medieval mankind into a practical compli
ance with fashions which
,'were directly in
"jurious to health.
The warm clothing, - an4 in particular the
weighty hoods, worn in Edward the Third's
reign, were excellent allies to the deadly ep
idemics of the times, and may even have
whetted the scythe of that Black Death that
mowed among our forefathers as among
thick grass, and that swept away half the
population of Europe. The extravagant
tightness of the French hose and doublet
worn under Louis -the Eleventh—and of 1
which Charles the Bold's towering effigy,
as he stands in stone larger than in life. be 'l
side the famous chimney piece of the Bru
ges town hall, is the best example—was suc- '
ceeded by the ludicrous bulk' of the born.
basted garments of Francis of France, and
the bluff Harry o England.
Trunk hose and Flanders coats, stuffed out
with hair:and wool, with bran or straw, ac
cording to the liberality of the customer,
was what tailordom had then to' offer to a
discerning public; and soon afterward the
stiff Elizabethan ruff, excruciatingly-starch
ed, and with its bristling points as shaft; as
the spiked leaves of the holly hedge, began
to incase the much-enduring necks of both
sexes. Then, to the brocaded doublet and
short hose of the original of the Vandyck
portraits there succeeded -the lace falls, the
knee buckleS, flapped coats, fathomless
waistcoats, and majes.tic, periwigs of that
Atigusta» age in which the ,Ctesar held his
revels at Whitehall; and spent in a month
of easy-going, careless, almost joyless prod
igality, the yearly income which England
and the French king subscribed for Charles
the Second.—Harper's Bazar.
The pro Visions of grace are such that the
strongest habits can be overcome, the most
depraved hearts can be made clean, the
most abandoned character can be saved, the
most desponding spirit can be made happy,
the most fiery trials can be patiently endured,
and, finally, a home in Heaven ; where all i 3
love, joy and peace, can -be •eternally
sessed. Then, brother Man, lift up thy

there is an inner refinement of which the

find them. Where these emblems of purity
