-Mr. Benjamin F. Derby returned to
town and his lodgings at Mrs. Covey's
rather sooner than he was expected.
'was late in the evening, and, having en
tered by means of. his night -key, and
finding nobody stirring, he 'walked lei
surely. up to his room.
This was the apartment Mr. Derby
had always occupied in Mrs. Covey's
house; but on this occasion it seemed
very little . like - home. Before leaving
town, he had carefully put away all his
clothes in his trunk ; and during his ab
sence other revolutions had been made
In the room which gave it a'different
,NOt the least disagreeable thing in the
roomo was darkness. Mr. Derby had en
tered without a lamp, expecting to find
that desirable article in the old place;
but after knocking over au ink bottle,
a vase, and a sniff box, in his blind
search; he concluded that the wisest
course would be to stop swearing and go
to, bed in the dark.
Irt no very good humor, Mr. Benja
min F. Derby began to undress. To re
turn home after au absence of two weeks,
; and be obliged to go to bed in such a
dismal manner, almost broke his heart.
He might have rung for the servants,
it is true ; and he might have reflected
that his friends were excusable, since
they did not expect him ; but Mr. Der
by chose to be angry and silent. _
"Where is Margaret Maria?" mutter
ed the unhappy man. "Oh, faithless
daughter of an unfeeling landlady ! I
didn't expect this from you ! When I
tore myself from you two weeks ago,
you, protested with tears in your eyes
andLpertidy in your heart, that you
would watch, with the anxious eyes of
love, for any return ! • Oh,•this looks like
it! _ Even now, I know you are making
yourself merry - With some fresh con
quest, or, if you are sleeping under this
root;you are dreaming of pleasures in-
- Which I have no share!" So saying,
Mr: Benjamin F. Derby threw his trow
sera on a chair, and began to grope his
way in darkness to the head of the bed.
At this• moment a merry laugh close to
his• chamber door startled him. Mr.
Derl3l . paused.
-"Margaret Maria's laugh, by all that
Is: .fiflie ! ' groaned Mr. Derby. " She
,Said she would do nothing but sigh and
weep : dining rriy absence, and—heartier!
she laughs again !: The falSe heart
Mr... Derby's reflections were suddenly
interrupted .by the sound of a hand
ing his door latch. With consid
erable trepidation, he tiew'to lock the
'door;:, but before he could reach it, a
Merry:la - Ugh and a blaze of light and
two girls. burst into the room.
NoW2Mr. Derby was a very modest
Person; and it was a lucky circumstance
for him that the closet door was ajar,
the retreat convenient - , . and his limbs
active.. ; He dodged out of sight before
the girls had time to east their eyes
about them; and soon the door was shut
and Mr. Derby's ears pinned back.
" What time do you suppose it is ?"
asked Margaret Maria. " There, the
'bells are 'striking, twelve. Oh, hain't
W'e had a gay time, Susan ?"
"Gay enough,"' was Susan's reply.—
" Hal ha! 'but wouldn't your poor, dear
.absent Derby be amused if he knew----"
1' Hal ha! ha!" laughed Margaret
Maria. My poor, dear absent Derby !
That is too good ! If he knew ! Poor
fellow*, if !would, break his heart. He
thinks I do notihing but sigh and ery
:,dtxringhiS absenee Am .1 such a goose?"
'• ' " a•ooe , !' "' Oh !" groaned
'Derby, Painfully interested. "Oh !"
~`,`Such-; a goose!" echoed Sue. "He
:wouldn't, think of it, if he bad seen you
.eating the-oysters with Dan Robbins.!'
" I only hope," added Margaret Ma
ria, " that he will keep away a week
longer." , ' , : l
" So that we can have this room !"
' "No—not exactly that; but'Dan has
invited me to go to a ball on Thursday'
night, and you know I couldn't go if
my poor, dear absent Derby should come
,back in the meantime.
Derby \YRS trembling with cold and
"You mean to marry Derby, then?"
" I suppose I shall," cried Margaret
- Maria, gaily.- - " I like to flirt with Dan ;
.and if•lie• had ;as many dollars as 'My
pocir' deaf absent Derby-,—" • •'•
1 : 1 You 40,u1d choose Dan?',' I .
TO be Sure would. .ain't,' such
a fool as—, " „
" Derby! Ha! ha! But what is this?
A. coat and a pair of pantaloons 1" ,
•" Goodness _
gracious ! How did they
come here" •
Derby , was trembling with excite
ment-b-nriiing"with rage'; but now' he
felt a; new: source of uneasiness. The
discoVerYcif his pantaloons might lead
. to..,the discovery of himself. Had he
been, dressed, he wouldh av e liked niith
ing better than to confront the perfidi
ous Margaret aftuia—but for the present
'it was not to be thought of. He felt
himself blushing all over, in spite of
the ;cold. - his relief, however, the
girls, after making out that there was
nobody ,in nor under the bed, did not
Seem dispbSed, to enquire into the mys-.
tery of the pantaloons; but Margaret
Maria, exelaimed :
‘ I'4 tell you what I will do, Sue. 11l
dress myself in these clothes, and go in
to ithe widow Slade's room. , She'll
think tit is-a- man, and won't she be
"Frightened? No !" cried• Susan:—
" She's had two husbands. 'But do it;
see what She will say."
I will: Here, help me,- Sue. Ha!
ha;l Ahd here's a hat, too. How kind
in somebody to leave all his clothes
Derby—poor dear, present Derby—was
breathing very hard ; his heart beat hea
vily, and every nerve shook. What the
deuce was he to do if Margaret. Maria
went off with his pants, he could in no
manner `determine; and from the ex
ceedingly interesting conversation that
was going on, he knew that his worst
,fearsl.vere ; to be realized.
"Oh, ain't•it a At?" cried Margaret
Maria. Only turn up the trowsers five
or six inches, and I shall be fixed. Here,
black My upper lip with this piece of
coal. -I shan't make love to you. Ha!
hal ain't I a dashing fellow?"
• And Derby could heat` somebhdy kiss
ing somebody, and Lkomebody laughing
EIA if she valid not help it.,
'.A. moment aftenhe girls had left the
room, Derby stole timidly from his hid
ing place. -1 Margaret 'Maria had taken
the lamp and his clothes with her ; she
had left tlar,kness . and her own clothes
"behind: A happy" thought "struck un
happy Derby:- - ft all haste be- enrobed
himself in Maria's gown, then he put
her shawl over hip shoulders, and threw
,on, her bonne' and veil. His eyes hav
ing becOme accustomed to the darkness,
he - could see to do -this without - much
difficulty. In five minutes he wasready
to follow Sus. n and Maria,
During this time there . was a great
'deal of laughter up stairs. Maria, wear
ing Derby's - clothes, went to Mrs. Slade's
room, -who was a little startled at first,
but :who took .things very coolly, - unti
she found it was not a man after all,
when she virtuously gave vent to her
indignation. The adventurers next pro
ceeded to the attic, where the girls were
sound asleep. Susan- having placed the
lamp in the passage, hid behind the
door whilst Maria entered, and awoke
Jaiie'Weiodi • with a violent shower - . of
kisses: Jail 'uttered a faint scream and
demanded in a whisper— - -
"Who are you ?" •
" said Maria.
Jane, hushed accordingly, until she
saw the 'sttange - figure proceed to Maty
Clark's pillow, when she concluded it
was her duty to scream. - Mary scream
ed .t99, - after.she had been several times
kissed,.; and Sarah Jones joined in the
chains, until her Mouth" was stopped
with a hasty' buss: - "
• " Is it you, George?" , she whispered.
At this .moment, the. strange figure,
which had been seen by the light in the
passage, ran out, and Susan, catching
up the lamp, ran in.
Why, what is the matter?" she cried,
in pretended astonishment.
There has been a man in the room."
"He was kissing Sarah Jones."
"He didn't kiss me. He was kissing
Mary Clark." -
"Me ? • Iguess I'd have torn his eyes
out. It was Jane Woods he kissed."
Susan was very much astonished, of
course, and the girls were all very in
dignant ";" and not one ofthem - would con
fess that she had been kissed, until Su
san pointed out the marks of the coal
moustache on all their faces, and called
_Then. there was a great deal
of laughing ; and Maria having gallant
ly kissed them all, again set out to go
down stairs. ' •
But now it was Derby's turn to have
little fun, and Maria's to be astonish
led. As Susan advanced, the lamp she
carried revealed a frightful looking ob
ject standing at the foot of the stairs.—
It was apparently a woman of gigantic
stature ; her dress was so short that her
bare feet and ankles could be seen dis
tinctly, and she waved her large bony
, hand at the terrified girls majestically,
- like a ghost. Never were two mischief
makers more frightened by an appari
tion. Susan dashed herself against the
wall. Up wont a scream, and down the
l'anip - came. The oil covered the stairs,
and Mhria fainted and stepped in it.—
At that moment the:tall woman—being
Derby himself ,cried. ,
"Robbers! help! murder !", at the top
Of his voice ; and immediately Stepped
into his room, locking the door behind
Before Maria recovered her scattered
senses, all the boarders were astir. Su
san rushed to Mrs. Slade's room. Ma
ria would have followed her, but Susan
in her terror shut her out. ext Maria
tiled her InOther's door;' and' her' mo
ther, hearing the alarm, appeared at
that moment and, terrified by the coal
moustache and smashed hat, took her
datighter for the robber, dropped her
lamp, and screamed fearfully. Maria,
as much frightened as her mother, wo'ld
have caught her in her arms, but Mrg.
Covey would hear no explanation, nor
allow her daughter to approach her, and
pushed her out of the, room with great
trepidation. Then Maria ran to Der
-by's room, which, to her consternation,
she - found locked. -At that moment,
Ned Perkins, the • boldest fellow in the
-house, rushed out of his room with a
lamp in one hand, and a sword cane in
the other ready drawn for combat. Ned
'flew-at the Supposed robber, and Would
- have seized her In an instant, if shehad
not properly seen fit to faint at the sight
of his naked sword, and legs, and" fail
down before Mr. 'Derby's room. Her
hat 'now came off,' her hair streamed
down her neck,-and Ned recognized her.
Anybody can imagine the scene of
confusion which followed. The impru
dent girl found herself surrounded by
half a dozen half Jiressed .figures, some
wondering, some trembling with terror.
But it was the severest cut for Maria,
when the door of Derby'sroom opened,
and the tall apparition , appeared. ;As
soon as the screaming had subsided, the
n'gUre removed its Veil.
Don't be frightened, Maria," it said,
" it's nobody but your 'poor, dear ab
sent Derby.' • That's all. , .
Cap you fancy her feelings? Mr. Der
by could, as he entered the room again,
locked the door, and went to bed, over
joyed at what had -occurred. He -"slept
soundly, and awoke - in - the morning as
completely cured,of his love for Maria,
as if helad seen her turned into se,griz
zly bear.. _

discussion upon- differentmodes of anal

nounced as expired, the subject of
grammar was put over; and Dr. Bacon,
of Wellsboro, introduced, who said our
schoolrooms were not properly ventila
ted. Seats were either too high or too
low ; stoves were a nuisance, and furna
ces little Vesuviuses, belching forth only
miasma. Children should sit erect, stu
dy but little, and take plenty out-door
exercise. Teachers should understand
the laws of physiology and hygiene be
fore entering the profession. Most of
the diseases of children, and deformities
of grown up persons, may be traced to a
want of this knowledge in teachers.—
No child under ten years should be kept
in one position more than fifteen min
Dr. Bacon was followed by Professor
A. E. Putnam, in an interesting lecture

Professor Van Allen introduced to the 1
Institute by the President. The follow-
ing is a brief synopsis of Mr. Van Al
len's remarks :
HOW MUCH TO EDUCATE.
The importance of education is ad
mitted by all. _ But in regard to manner
and extent, a wide diversity of opinion
exists. Many consider a partial educa
tion, or the training of some one facul
ty, all important; others demand com
plete development, or harmonious edu
cation of all the faculties. That the lat
ter is the true theory, was the aim of the
speaker to prove. In order to do this,
he referred to, the constitution of the
mind—the nature of knowledge—its re
lation to the mental powers, to the ef
fects of partial and complete training;
and then considered arguments that
may be adduced by believers in partial
Mind is complex in nature; hence all
its elements or faculties must be sym- I
metrically built up—to produce a per
whole. The intellectual powermust I
not overshadow the sensibilities, nor
vice versa. The same is true of any
special faculty--as reason, memory, ima
gination, conscience, &c.
Diversity among men is due not to
original differences, but to education.—,
" Beginnings are alike—ends differ."—
The human soul being a full strung lyre,,
all its chords must be struck in order to
produce spiritual harmony. Knowledge
is theisouPs food. Special fields of truth
are designed to feed special faculties.—
All these must be laid under tribute, if
the soul would be well fed. But some
men have a specialty: One for mathe
matics,-another for music, others for bu
siness, &c. ; and so they cultivate these
to the neglect of all others, and thus be
come ill-balanced men.
• One-ideaism is the result of partial
trainin . Usefulness and happiness are
measurby the degree of development;
cornmo sense is the result of full train
ing; echication forms character ; around,
well pr portioned character i 4 the effect
of the education of all its elements.—
" But a man can follow but one pursuit
in life, and hence should specially pre
pare for that one." True, in part. Con
centration is the secret of success. To
burn, light must be converged ; but first
there must be light to converge. By
proper culture, man may be fitted for
almost any calling. - " Life is too short 1
to learn everything." The sciences are
linked together; 'to comprehend one,
you must study its correlative.
There should be division of labor, but
not division of man. " All great men
have specially cultivated one faculty."
Not true. All good great men were
broadly educated men. Bad great men
have ill-balanced minds. But when we
consider man's immortal nature, and
eternal destiny, it must be admitted
that his powers must be harmoniously
developed. We are all children in a
primary school. We should strive to
" lay broad bases for eternity," upon
which to erept an enduring life-temple,
to be dedicated to God and Itirtue.
We are our own architeCts, painters
and sculptors; should pattern after 1
God's, not Satan's plan. We cannot I
complete it here, but hereafter, aided by
the Divine Architect.
Sculptors of Life are we, as we stand '
With our souls nncarved before us - ;
Waitin the time when, at God's command,
Our life ream passes o'er us..
If we carve it then on the yielding stone,
'' - With many a sharp incision,
Its heavenly beauty shall be our own—
_ . , Oar lives, that angel vision."

Miss McCarter was called to the chair,
and, on motion of Mr. Elliott, Captain
Hart organized the teachers into a class,
and conducted an exercise in grammar
on the old plan of teaching the same,
namely, parsing. This exercise elicited
a lively discussion on different modes of
teaching. Captain Hart thinks pupils
should parse more, to acquire a thorough
knowledge of grammar, which he is
sorry to say is too much neglected in
schools. The Captain said a gocxi many
other good things, in which he did 11111C.11
credit to himself and the .profession he
Mr. Elliott then drilled the class a

interesting rules. The hour having.ex
pired, the spirits of the Institute were
revived by a stirring song by Dr. Webb.
Professor Allen, of the State Normal
School, Mansfield, Pa., made a few re
marks on spelling. He said that spell
ing is the poorest taught, poorest learned
of all branches in school, and yet the
most important. Would have the tea
cher give the derivation, as well as defi
nition, of every word when pronounced.
One h undred words, selected by 31Zsars.

to Miss Lydia Howe, as the best and
second best spellers of the class. After
the report of the committee wa.43 an
nounced, the class, by a unanimous vote,
was given Into the hands of Professor
Allen. Having just come in, he said he
had no particular subject; would be
glad to answer questions. President
Hart asked, Should female teachers
talk in the teachers' Institute?" Profes
sor Allen answered, in a lecture of one
half hour, that the war has demonstra
ted that woman con teach school, and
teach better than man. Woman is the
natural teacher of children, and can
govern them much better. But li she
would fit herself, properly for tnchin
she must learn to talk, not only in the
school room, but especially in the county
Institutes, which are held for their Im
provement, and can only iiV9 and thrive
by their work. At the conclusion of
his remarks the Institute adjourned.
