• In 18— I was traveling from Ithiaato
Buffalo, in New . y.o . rk State, by stage,
intending to reach "my home in season
to partake of the annual Thanksgiving
dintier with fond and loving
,friends, at
the old homestead. It was:a bitter cold
morning when we set out, and the roads
were frozen hard, there having been
considerable mud only it few days be

ging up so that the wheeld Would' not'
run. When night came', we fOund our
selves Obliged to atop at a small village
only twenty miles from where we set
out in the morning.
A good supper was provided at the
inn;and the place had the appearance
of comfort. We had just set down to
supper, when the windl began to blow
furiously, and we could see by the dim
light without, that the snow was being
whirled mucdriven . about in - a furious
manner. • There was a fire in the small
sitting room, and thither we passen
gers, six of us,
adjourned. We sat there
and conversed until near nine o'clock.;
and then I went out Into the bar room,
to smoke a cigar preVious to retiring.
In the har , ropm I found a bright wood
fire burn and some dozen people
were sitting there, smoking and drink
ing. , (Thisiwas long before the intro
duction of the Maine laws.) Several of
the companyl judged to be teamsters;
a rough, hardy natured. set, who were
enjoying theniseives hugely over a mug
of flip! Then there were'several whom
I found to be villagers—Men who lived
near the inic—a set of village politicians
and newsmengers, who made the bar
room their place of social eveningmee
I had lighted my cigar and taken my
seat near the fire, when I noticed a buf
falo skin on one end of the settee, op
posite to where I sat,.and I was confi
dent there was a human being beneath
it. I supposed it might be a stable
hand, who had been at work hard, or
was expected to be up most of the night,
and was now getting a little sleep. I
was looking:gg at the buffalo, and thus
meditating, when I heard a low, deep,
death-like groan come np from beneath
it ; and in a few moments more the robe
was'thrown upon thefloor, and the man
who had reposed beneath came down
up:in the top of it, awl there•he lay for
some moments like ti, dead man. I bad
-- just_started up, 'when four of the villa
gers Itufsteyied to his assistance. They
lifted him toliis-feel L and after consid
erable effbrt he managed - toAt_and up.
My God ! what a thrill struCicAcony
heart when I saw that face. It was one
of noble features; a broW, high and am
ply developed, over which clustered a
mass of dark, glossy ringlets; the face
'beautifully proportioned; and each sep
arate feature most exquisitely chiseled.
But what, an expression rested there
The great dark eyes bad a vacant,idi
otic stare ; the face was agi pale as death,
and the lips looked dr and .parched,
and much discolored. is clothes were
torn and soiled, and one`of his bands
bloody. He was surely net more than
five and thirty,
, and his appearance
would at once indicate a man of more
than common abilities. But the dem
on had him, and bad made him now
something below the brute.
"Rowe do you feel now, George?"
asked one of the men who had, gone to
his assistance.
But lie only groaned in reply, and be
was soon persuaded to lie down again,
being told that he would soon feel bet
ter. As soon as he was on the settee
once more, and had the buffalo over
him, the men returned to their seats.
" Who is that chap?" asked one of
the teamsters, looking toward the villa
gers who had been assisting the unfor
tunate man.
" That's George Loekland k' returned
a stout, honest looking - man.
" Does he belong, here?"
" Yes. Didn't ye never hear of him?"
The teamster replied that be bad not.
" Well," resumed the fat man, " it's
too bad, I declare 'tie. Lockland might
be one of the first men in town, If he'd
mind to ; but you see be will drink ;
and the worst of it is, he makes a fool

ton right out of his boots. But ye see
he's lost all of his best customers now.
They daren't trust him with business,*
'cause he ain't sure of ever doing It.—
Het's' got one of the beautlfulest little
wives you ever saw ; and one of the
handsomest Children; 'But, poor things!
I pity 'em. Then there's another thing
rum operates differently on him from
What it does *on most folks. It doesn't
show itself on the outside, as it does a'-
most . everybody else, but it seems to eat
him up inside. You see how pale he
looks—well; he's alWays so when
on one of these times. He don't ea
nothlri', and I don't suppose he'll put
bit of food into his stomach for a week,
"How long has he been so ?" asked
he teamster.
"How d'ye

"Well, he's took a drunk more or
less ever since he came from college ;

they wouldn't give him any job of con

this drunk, I should say he had been
on it a fortnight. He's got down now
as lbw as he can get and live, atd
guess he'll get sober in a day orl
" But where does he get hi: quor?"
asked the questioner.
" You must ask Mike Fingal that
queslion," was the other's answer.
All eyes were turned upon the land
lord,• who now stood behind the lar.—
He was evidently troubled at this turn,
and moved uneasily upon his high

" - yes, 1 do," the fellow replied, with
an effort .-".Don't I sell you the same,
when you call for it?"
" But I ain't a poor drunkard, and
you know it. That is no excuse. Mike,
I shouldn't think you'd do it."
" But when he wants rum he's bound
to have it; and if I didn't let him have
it somebody else would," the host re
" Now that's odd," energetically pur
sued the teamster. "On the same plea,

The conversation was here interrup

wind was still howling madly, and the
snow was driving against the window,
but above,the voic i e of the storm came
the wailing of.,_:fie one in distress. It
was surely the cry of, a child for help.

wile moments before I could see at all,
the snow came driving into my-face so;
but I soon managed to turn my bead
and then went on. The wind, as it
came sweeping out through the stable,
had piled up a huge bank of snow across
the street, and in this bank we found-a
female with a child in !her arms. She
seemed faint and frozen, but yet she
clung to her child. The man who car
ried the lantern held it up to her face.
The features were half covered with
snow, but the momentary glare of the
lantern was sufficient to reveal to me a
face of more than trdinary beauty.
" Heavens !" uttered the man, as he
lowered the lantern, and caught the w -
Man in his arms. " Kate Loekland, is
this you ?" But without waiting for a
replyj he turned to the rest of us and
"here, take the child, some of
yen, and I'll carry the mother."
The child was quickly taken, and ere
many minutes we were back in the bar
room with our burden. The two were
taken to the fire and the snow brushed
frnm them,
" Who's•them ',' asked the host.

the host was coming around the bar,
and his.eyee were flashing with min
gltd shame and anger; but before he
7go, fairly out, the stout, burly teamster,
wio had said so much, started up.
" Mike Fingal," he uttered in tones
suth as only aMan confident of his own
ptysical power, can command, " don't

Again the poor man gazed about him',
and, as a fearful 'shudder convulsed his

truth had burst upon him.
" No fuel!—no food I" be groaned.

Jim asked of the husband.

But the wife could not speak, and as

the lantern in readiness, and half a doz

" Come," he s id. " Lead George,

stouter than I—and I'll take the little

teamster, and he took the wife in his
arms as thopgh she had been an infant.
" It's only a few steps," said Drake,
as lie started to go.
," ' . send your
lantern back, Mike Fingal."
And with this the party left the bar
room. I went to the window and saw
them wading off through the snow,
and' when they were out of sight I went
away. The host came out and began
to explain matters ; but I was sick en
ough already, and with an aching heart
I left the room.
On the following morning I came
down to breakfast later than usual, for
I slept very little through the night.—
About nine o'clock the driver came in
and told us the stage would be ready in
five minutes. I went to the bar room
for a cigar. Jim Drake had just come
in•to bring back the old cloak they had
wrapped around the child the nigl t be

was sharp and bracing, and slowly we
wallowed away from the village.
I reached Butlitlo two days later than
I had expected to when I started, and
having transacted my business there, I
went on to Mississippi, and so on down,
to New Orleans. Four years afterward
I had occasion to travel that same road
again, and stopped in that same village
to take dinner. The bar was still open,
but Michael Fingal had gone away. I
walked out after dinner, and soon came
across a neatly painted - office, 'over the
door of which I read : " George Lock
land, Attoriey and Counselor at Law."
In less than - five minutes afterward I
saw a fat, good natured looking man
coming toward me, whom I at once re
cognized as Jim. Drake. As ho came
up I said:
" Excuse me, sir, but I wish to ask
how Mr. Lockland is getting on now."
" Squire 'Lockland, you mean ?" he
answered, with a pr l oud look: You
know him, then ?,'—
" I (lid Once," said'l.
" Then you ought le - know him now.
He is the first m'Au in the county—the
first man in the county, sir. Fouryears
ago this month, that is coming, he was

you ever know the 'Squire's wife?"
"I have seen her," I replied. I saw
Drake did not recognize me.
" But you should see her now. Ah,
'twas a great Change for her. That'is
their child?—that little girl coming this
way. Isn't.that a picture for you ?"
I . looked and saw a bright-eyed,,l sun
ny-haired girl of some eight summers,
coming laughing and tipping along
like a little fairy. She stopped as she
came up where we stood, a`nd put up her
arms to " Uncle Drake," ,has she called
the old man ; and while ho was kissing
her, and chatting with her, I moved on.
I looked back once more on that happy,
beauteous face, just to contrast it with
the pale, frightened features I had seen
on that night in the bar room.

so it pleases their vanity to be

For myself I dress rather pla
Perhaps I could better afford to
this style than many who assume it.—
But my taste does not so lead me; and
then, too, knowing the sins which the
love of dress will drive women to, I try
in an humble way to set a better c..ana.!,
Besides, I want my gentlemen friends
to feel that one girl, and, if they will
but see it, hundreds of others, do" not
care for dress for• themselves. Ambi-
tious parents desire it; and short sight
ed young men admire; and so often they
appear frivolous, .IV - hen really their

me, and should be thinking: " This is
a sensible girl. She comes to hear the
music. I can afrord to bring her sev
eral times for what, a carriage would
cost once for these butterfly women."
Ah, no, he does not look so far as this;
but, whether he means the comparison
or not, calls my attention to the most
gaily attired ladies, saying, admiringly,
"How becomingly that,lady is dressed.
What an elegant costume Miss .

am telling you ; bizt I feel it all, and

THE .I.4 l .mor—Farming is a profession,
not to say a science. If any one doubts
this statement, let him leave his city
home-for no one bred in the country
will doubt it—aud undertake to cultiL'
vete even 'a garden cf half an acre for
the Summer'. He will then find that
knowledge is as essential ,to the right
use of the spade as the pen, and that
there is as great a difference 'between
the scientific farming of FAnders,
where literally not a weed is to be seen,
and that of our farmers, the wealth of
whese soil is about : equally civided be
tween fruits and weeds, as between the
trade of a commercial city rind the bar
ter of a backwoods' settlemnt .
It is true that agriculture has been
the last to receive the impetus of mozi
ern science. It is true that many agri
culturists are'content to 'go on in the
way of their fathers because exptyi
ments are costly. • But it is also t tie
that hey are unable to compete with
those'.who understand the use of new
instrumerd'a, methods and fertilizers.
Agriculture is also becoming in this
county a popular recreation. '; Many a
gentleman is content to spend on his
country seat., money which he Makes
in the counting room. The practical
farmer is thus able to get the benefit of
experiments without paying for them.
This change in agriculture, which has
converted it from a drudgery to an I.rt,
- has created a demand for a correspond
ing\ literature. "Fifty years ago, a ka
