Robert Russel, the young man ad
dressed, listened_ with grave civility,to
his conk pan ions words. •...
What •was such advice in comparison
tvith the urging of his whole nature?—
He had left • England three weeks be
fore, to claim the woman of his choice;
who had been a year . in Montreal;
whither she had emigrated Vith'.her
parents, carrying with her the love and
promise of one whom she beloved with ,
utter devotion.
Russell's uncle and adopted father
had accompanied him, and now , sat
smiling at the impatience, the whims

• " There is u §torsi iising "in the air, in
spite of the sunlight,' Russel said, still
standing by the window, I should not
enjoy being blockaded in by snow on
my journey.'
' Probably not ; but you might as well
expect it in this climate."'
' Wet, I shall take Alice back to
England as eopn possible,' Russell
said, with his hand on the door. Good
bye, uncle, then, good bye.'
Russel was soon speeding from the
town, his eyes looking eagerly forward
oN. , ee the vast stretches of snow'as if he
would outstrip even the steam which
-bore him.
H( not half through his journey
when from•the west, where, it
Thad lingered through the sunny morn
ing„ rose. tile tiltny [ wbite veil that is
the herald - of snow. Weather-wise peo
ple looked out of the car windows and
shook their heads, sayin g —
This" will be a hard one. It's just a
year since the terrible storm that block
aded in this
.looking, felt his ,face grow
Pallid in spite of his hopes, his youth
ul energy.
He did not fear the storm while on
he cars; he knew they would get tO
their destination before the stortn

lard them much. 'But he remembered
the twenty miles he must go in a cutter
after the last station, for Alice waited
him at the residence,of a relative, be
yond Montreal. Her aunt had persua
ded her to have the wedding there,
where wealth could give its glow to the
ceremony, and what girl could resist
such an invitation.

mured Russell, and the first few flakes
began to drift slowly downward.
Soon the air was filled with fine sharp
particles. , It ;grew colder instead of
war►ncr, .0r: apparently so, , for the wind
rose and whirled the snow fiercely.
It had snowed two hours when Rus
sell alighted at the station in Montreal.
It was already Cfal` 4 lt;lll.Ve that the gloom

man lying motionless among her furs.
With a suppreSsed cry he lifted that
beautiful form to his. shoulder, and sat
down on the cutter, bending his lips to
the cold ones that could not respond to
his caress. And yet she was not dead,
—a faint breath Just Sighed across his
cheek. • • : ; 1

must be moving on, though ever so

presently some one opened and , , passed
through the yard door.: (This yard door
face on .to the road ; It wits' then a ,

and any one going to the front door
would have to pass this yard door, the

and then turn round the corner of the
housti through-a gate in the garden.)
She was a good•cleastartled, more es
becausethis door, according to
domestic regultitions, ought to have
been locked. - She roused herself to
listen with all her Might, and heard
dlttinetlyall the more distinctly as
the house was so quiet—the person who
had opened the, yard door enter the
hpuSe:hy the - hack door, traverse a pas
sage, 'in the basement story, open the
door at the foot of the back stairs,
mount the back stairs, and enter the

completely reassured; for she had tee-'

his umbrella into - the stand with a rat
nelse, „took: Oft his, top-coat and'
sheok,it, and —then came through the
inner hall into the. dining-room. The
hall doer and dining-room door were
both ajar, so she easily heard this. He

ho must have left the house 'again, for

heardhgain the samefootsteps apprbaeh

the alum traversing of the passage

the room, walked up, to the fire, and
placed his elbow on the mantelpiece
and foot pit the fender, just as he had
done before. "'Why, where have you
been ?'! exclaimed my mother, as soon
as , she could speak, after the first gasp
Ofamazement. "Been?" said he, turn
ing round and noticing for the first time
her- excitement aod distress, "I have
been al,thie jail it,s .usual." "Oh! you
know that's net What I mean ; where
have you been Since you came in by
the,back door, just as you have done
just now, 'rather - more than 'half and
hour since ?" "..I. don't understand you
at all; I have come straight from the
jail, and never been in the house, since
I left_t t his mor4ing.",,"Ohl it's too bad;
playing. jokes like this to frighten me,
when you knoW I'm not well." (My
mother was in- 'delicate health at the
time.) And then,' in answer to his
amazed questions, she poured out the
story I have told you. •
I believe the incident happened ex-'
actly as I have narrated. I have heard ;
my father tell the story repeatedly, and
he was singularly truthful and accurate.
My mother's account, too, tallied, pre
cisely with'his. My sister cannot note,
I think, distinguish iietWeen what she
recollects and what she had so often'
heard related. Butlbay father at the
time questioned her as to what she had:
heard, aner aceOtint was that "I saw
mamma sup suddenlyand go into
papa's dressing-room, and then she went
into all the rooms up stairs iis if she was
looking for something,. and then she
Caine down and looked as if something
was the matter; but she Wouldn't an
swer ins when I asked. what it was."
When my mother told her story, my
father instantly recollected that as lie
left the jail the thought occurred to him,
when he saw 'how heavy the rain was,
that if he found the yard door unlocked
he - would go in that way-1, thing which
lie very seldom did—to avoid going
round the corner to the front door ; and
the thought having once occurred, he.
mentally rehearsed the circumstances
of his entrance—doing Jo the- spirit
precisely what he afterwards did in the
body. The distance from the _jail to our
tome at "East Cliff" was rather more
than two miles, and as this corresponds
with my mother's "rather more than
half an hottr," the conclusion is obvious
that while the, image of the, yard door,
back , stairs,,&c:, was present in his
brain, his imago was, sitnylianeously
pfeseet in my .mother's brain.' The in
cident-, therefore, is 'as pretty and com
plete an 'instance of a 'brain-wave" as

" Admiral Sir Thomas Williams, a

founder of the' Royal Naval Female,

daughters;, was in command of ,n
crossing the Atlantic ocean. , His course

by an unaccountable 'desire to Steer to

tried to disregard it—but in vain. His

and distressing, and foreseeing that it

The offiCer , whom he spoke ventured
respectfully to present that changing
their course would greatly delay them—
that just ( at that moment the men were
going to
,their dinner—that, at least,
sortie delay might' e allowed. But
these arguments se mcd •to increase
.Captain William's anxiety, and he gave
the word of coalman , which is never

and even an strong as is ever
shown on an order torn the .captain ;
but he was 'obeyed, ' int the Ship was

and-when they: - neared she shore. it.-was
ascertained that sixteen men, wrecked
on that coast many 'day6 before, and
suffering the extremity of hunger, had
set up a signal, though almost without
hope of relief. The shipwrecked men
were taken on board, and the voyage
completed. Sir Thomas related this
anecdote in the simplest and most
tranquil manner, in . D., 1813 (years
after the date of its o currence), to the
writer of thiS accoun . S. L.
Hagley Hall, May , 1856.
Some time ago there was discovered a
mammoth cave near Salisbury Conn.,
hung with glittering stalactiteS, and
rivaling in beauty the most gorgeous of
earth's own handicraft. The copper
implements, tile ghostly bones, the
bronze ornaments, the petrified wood,
were duly chronicled and described at
the time of the discolfery. The country
about this cave isstrikingly picturesque.
Twin lakes, connected by but a narrow
creek spread in summer their shining•
pool faces to the blue sky, and mirror
the overhanging fdyests, which send
out huge branches Covered with ver
dure, and stand g ant-like sentinels
over this land of be• uty., In an East
ern exchaiwe is an a count of the bring
ing to light ofa twit cave, to rival the
twin lakes, which W 11 be of 'still more
absorbing, novelty.
Long before the 11 st-mentioned cave
had, been discovered the firtnily of Mr.
Miles, a wealthy re ident, whose farm
contained th 2 won erful" Cave, were
much puzzled to ace unt for the tracks
which frequently ap eared, both in the
frosty grass of the meadows and near,
the house, on the freshly-scraped walks.
These prints were evidently those of a
daint,y female foot, and where they
came from was a mystery which gave
rise to the most perplexing questions
.and suppOsitions.
While. in summer these marks were
frequently observed near the house,•in
the winter,' wh,en the ice had mantled
the lake With• its stern, chill counter
pane, and the snow in turn had frosted
,the ice witha diamond, sheet, these
same footprints were not only noticed
on tho frosty covering, but at night a
form, gliding with 'inexpressible grace,
bearing a lighted taper in its hand, was
observed to float, with a spirit motion,
to the opposite shore . of the lake; and
eluding all attempt at closer observa
tion, preserve the itntical, distance he

licitations of his (la fighter, employed a
detective to ferret o a the intruder and
discover the object in view, as well as
the habitation, the location of which
was totally iinknol, n, and, indeed, not
even suspected.

I A Sensation - in Actual Life.
A. startlino-Instanee of the freaks in
which "outAgeous fortune" sometimes
revels has recently taken place in the
family of a quondam magnate of Wall
St., now retired and living in whet ele
gance in the lower vicinity of Central
Park. The gentleman, 'whose name
"mought be" Jones, but isn't, returned
some years since, with his,family, from
Europe, bringing a young French girl,
Susette, as nurse to the young babe.
After.a few months she left the service
of the family on seine triVial pretext,
and another nurse being substituted,
Susette was quite forgotten. Mrs.
Jones had moved in fashionable circles,
while rearing a family of three sons and
four daughters,.the youngest of whom
was the nursling of Susette, As years
rolled on,/ , the 'youngest grow to be
a blooming girl of twelve years, attend
ing a hoarding school on the H4lson.
The oldest daughter and two of the sods
have married happily, and nothing is
the serene prosperity of the household
threatened to ruffle the the even to or
of their riffief , Among other kind y
promptings of their generous natures,
the family has taken a deep interest in
a humble widow woman supporting a
family of five chlldren. She had for
ninny years been intrusted with the
family washing, which was usually re
trailed by one of the girls of the ,faith
ful laundress, and many little niceties
were sent home by this girl, whose gen
tle demeanor had so won upon Mrs.
Jones that g•lie arranged for her partial
education, and already regarded her as
a sort of protege, for all •of which the
poor widoW was profusely grateful, and•
declared she would yet • make a lady
of her." A few weeks since the family
received a lett,er bearing the postmark
of an obscure town in the south of
France. It contained voluminous en
closures, bearing official seals, all in
French. A family council was con
vened to decipher the contents, and
many a jest bandied in the merry circle
about the center-table, as catch contrib
uted their 1: no‘vledge of written French' s
in a loose cliirograpy, to get at the mean
ing of so fornddable a missive. The
younaest daughter, quite fresh in her
studies, seemed to make more progress,
'and the mysterious docunients, first
passing from hand to had, were finally
allowed to rest before her, the rest of
the group laughingly criticising her
broken accents as she read slowly on.
She hesitated—was met by another
volley of badinage, which was
strained her
eyes more closely to the paper, pressed
her jeweled hand upon her temples—
turned ashy pale—uttered one scream,
and fell back into her father's arms in
a swoon !
It Was a fearful night with that strick
en 11( . 418cl:old as they hovered over that
senseless form. A physician hastily
called in, seeking fiir a cause of the
strange attack, was shown the scattered
missives left upon the parlor floor. Be
ing a fluent scholar he could read them
readily, and there, in the dead hours Of
night, the morning winds - without, and
decaying tire in the grate, forming a
weird scene, the blow fell uPou
ready affrighted household ! No won
der the poor girl had been stricken ddwn
in reading her own doom—that she •was
no child of theirs, but of a poor, Nyti4her
woman ! The substance of- the death
bed statements of Susette, which the
letter contained, duly authenticated,
was, that in taking her infant charge
for an airing, she called as usual at the;
Poor house. of the family laundress,'
whose babe was of the same age With
that of Mrs. Jones. That the woman
begged me to sty and mind the chil
dren while she took home, some 'Work.
While alone in the house with'the two
infants, one of them pulled a hot iron
upon it, burning it badly ; she 'applied
such she could seize upon,
but in her fright fancied the injury
must be fatal. It Was the infant in
her charge! This she had no thought
of at tho first moment, as there was a
reinarkable resemblance between them.
Overcome with fear, the Devil told her
(to use her own language) "that the
other babe would do Mrs. Jones just as
well." The- clothing was quickly
changed. Thepoor woman was encum
bered with a sick and suffering infant
until its recovery, which fact probably
aided the deception. Mrs. Jones was
quite ill at the time, and a wet . nurse
was engaged for that very day ; so
Susette successfully screened her dia
bolical act, but still fearing a denoue
ment, sought the first vacation. to get
away to her own land. Unable, after a
lapse of years, to die in peace, she made
a full confession.
The tinnily seek to itcrep the 'affitir
very quiet. A lady - to whom the phy
sician was quite devoted mentioned the
filets etc .secrecy had been enjoind.
The foster child •of the poor wid o w
will be reinstated in her full rights, and
be "made a huly," dire enough ; the
widow's entire family are amply pro-.
vided for, and the, poignant sorrow of
the girl reared ,in luxury will be as
suaged in a great degree by retaining
bWposition of a: daughter. Truth,

FOUR.—Monkeys are pretty common,
yet as all the family are remarkably
cunning, has . ir ever occurred to the
treader how they are taken? Pitfalls
will take a lion, and the famished mon-
Sroli of the forest will,' after a few days
tarvation, dart into a'eage containing
food and thus be secured. But how are
the monkeys caught? The ape family
resemble man. Their vices are human..
They lOve liquor, and fall. In Darfour
and Sennar the natives make fermented
beer, of which the monkeys are excess
ively fond, Aware of this, the natives
go to the parts of the forests frequented
by the monkeys and set on the ground
calabashes full of th enticing liquor.
As soon as a monkey' sees and tastes 'it,
he utters loud cries qf Joy, that soon
. attract his comrade Then an orgie
begins, and in a'short time the beasts
show all degrees of intoxication. Then
the negroes appear. Tho few who come
too late to get fuddled escape. The
drinkers 'are too far gone to distrust
them, but apparently take ) them for
larger species of their own genus. The
negroes take some up, and these imme
diately begin to weep and cover them
with maudlin kisses. When a negro
takes one by the•hand to lead him oft;
tho nearest monkey -will cling to the
one who thus finds a support - and en
deavor to get off also. , Another will
grasp at him, and thus in turn till the
negro leads a staggering line of ten or a
dozen tipsy monkeys. Wheh finally
got to the village they are secuilily caged,
gradually sober down ; b' .

body—a woman of course inquires
why, when Eve was manufactured
from the spare-rib, a servant wasn't
made at the same time to wai ;on her?
Somebody else—a woman, we imagine
—replies in the following strain : 'Be
cause Adam never - came whining to
Eve, and with:a ragged stocking to be
darned ; collar string to be sewed on,
or a glove to mend, right away, quick
now P _Because he never read the news
papers, until the sum got down behind
the palm trees,_ and then stretching
himself, yawned out, ' Ain't supper
most ready, my dear?'—Not he. He
made the tire, an hung the kettle over
it himself, we'll venture, and pulled
the radishes, pe led the potatoes, and \
did everything ese he ought to do. He
milked the cow. M'ed the chickens and
looked after the '3lO - '' s. himself.- - He nev
er brought home half a dozen friends
to dinner when Eve had'nt• any fresh
pomegranates, and the mango season
was over. He never staid out till eleven
o'clook to fk wardToee t in g. 'Hurrahing
for an out-and-out candidate, and then
scolded because poor Eie was ' sitting
up and crying inside the gates. He
never played billiards, rolled ten-pins
and drove fast horses, nor clioked Eve
with cigar smoke. He never loafed
around cornergroceries while Eve was
rocking little Cain's cradle at home.—
In short he didn't think that she was
especially created for the purpose of
waiting on him and wasn't under the
impression that: it disgraced. a man to
lighten a wife's cares. _ That's the reas
on that Eve did not need a ired girl ;
and with it, was the reasoi that her .
fair descendants did.
lowing, mark you, is Jim Pas ey's nar
rative—don't you observe—of a night's
adventure. One morning we tilet him
hi the street, looking rather melancholy,
when he said :
"Yesterday I felt a little, bad, and
mark you, I went and took a small
drink ; and that not improving my
feeling, I took another and; another,
don't you observe, and finally, I got a
little tight. In the evening I ent into
the country with a friend, n rk you,
and thinking I would 'cool of , - I took
several more driaks when It of there,
don't you observe ; yet!, strait e to say,
the more I.drank the tighter I got, until
I went to bed., During the. night I
awoke, don't you obserVe, and I couldn't
imagine where the mischief I Was, mark
you. The room was as dark-as Egypt.
I heard the clock stria . ° two in some
part of the house, mark you. I became

Now, mark you, I reflected: that the

from this, mark, you, 'that b

the corner of the inure!, and by that be
guided by the wail to a roof or window,
don't you observe. Following out this
idea, mark you, l began .!arefully- to
feel along the edge of the afores iid table,
and finally gaining confident , I went
a little faster; t he idea struck me that
it was a blamed long table, Ili t I could
not get to a corner, Alont you observe ;
yet I persevered—and finally d y broke,
and when sufficient light perre rated the
apartment I saw, mark you, t at I had
