TUNKHANNOCK, PA., WEDNESDAY, AUG'T 9, 1865.
A GIRL THAT WOULD BE MARRIED
Mr. "Watts Lad by industry ana economy
accumulated a large property. He was a
man of rather superior mind and acquirements
but unfortunately became addicted to habits
ot internpcence. Naturally fond of compa
ny, and possessing superior conversational
powers, his company was much sought, and
he became eventually a sot. Ilis wife was a
feeble woman, without much decision of char
acter ; bu ian only child was the reverse,
illustrating one of those singular laws of na
ture, that the females oftenest take alter the
father in character and personal peculiari
ties, and the males after the mother-
Mary was well aware of the consequences
that would inevitably follow her father's
course, and had used every exertion of per
suasion and reason in her power, to induce
hun to alter his habi<s, but without avail ;
his resolutions and promises could not with
stand temptation, and he pursued his own
downward course, till the poor girl despaired
of ref.no. and grievously realized what the
end must result in.
John Dunn was a young man from the
East, possessed if a g<>od education, as all
our New England boys arc, and their indom
itable industry and perseverence, and was
working on the farm of a neighb r by the
Mary, on going on seme errand to the
next hotie, met him on the road with the
usua' salutation—"Good morning. Mr. Dunn.'
"Gool morning, M'ss Waits. llow is
your health ?"
' Well, I thank you, but to tell the truth,
sick at heart,"
"Pray, what is the trouble 7" said John,
"What can aff-ct you, a cheerful, lively girl

I cannot explain to you ; and yet I have
sometimes thought I might."
"Anything that I can do for you, Miss
Watts, you may freely command."
"Thai is promising more than you would
be willing to perfum. B:t to break the ice
at once, do von want a wife ?"
"A wife! We'l. 1 dou't know. Do you
want a husband ?"
'<indecd 1 do. Die worst way. I don't

woman, but if mm knew my situation, ar.d
the afflictions under which I suffer, I think
it would be some excuse for my course."
you thought of the consequenc ;s 7"
said John—"my situation—l am poor—you
are rich—l ara a stranger—and—"
"Indeed I have, lam almost crazy. Let
me explain—you and every one else know
the unfortunate situation of my father. His
habits are fixed beyond amendment. And
his property is wasting like the dews before

staring us in the face, We ore almost stran

important step ?"
"It is enough for me that I nm satisfied
with your character and habits—your per
son and manners. I am a woman and have
eyes We are about the same age; so, if
you know me and like me well enough to
take me, there is my hand !"
"And my dear Mary, there's mine, with
all my heart in tt. Now, when do you de
sire it to be settled !"
"Now, this minute ; give me your arm,
and we will go to Squire Benton'* ard have
the bargain finished at once, I don't want
to enter our house of distress again until I
have one on whom I can iely to control and
direct the affairs of mv disconsolate home,
and to support n.e in my determination to
turn over a new leaf in our domestic nff .'rs.
"But not in this old hat, and in my shirt
sleeves. Mary ?"
"Yes—and I in my old sun bonnet arid
dirfv apron. Tf you are content let it be
done at once. T hope vnu will think Tam

T want a master. Tam willing to he mis

"So be it—permit me tn sav, that T have
always admired yon from the first minute I
saw you, for your beauty and energy, and in
dus'rv, and amiable deportment."
"Now John, ; f that is sincere, this is the

Tbev were married and a more banpy

prospered ; houses and harns were repaired,

! tensive fi"lds smiled and fl turished like an

Fate oe Repi-blics.— Justice Story, in hi*
"Commentaries on tie Constitution," allude 8
to the downfall of Republics, and furnishes
thp following food for the digestion of the
people of to day. Is it too late for the lesson?
Many reflections crowd upon the mind at
the moment, many grateful reflections of the
past and many anxious thoughts of the fu
ture.- The past is secure. It is unalterable,
The sea! of eternity is upon it. The wisdom
which it has bestowed, cannot be obscured,
neither can it be debased by human infirmi
ty. The future is that which may well awa
ken the most earnest Rolicitude both for the
virtue and permanency of our republic. The
fate of other republics, their rise, thtir pro
gress, as written hut too legibly on the pages
of history, if, indeed, they are not continually
before us in the startling fragments of their
ruin. Those republics have perished ; and
have perished by their own hands. Pros
perity had eneivated them; and a venal
populace c msumated tneir destruction. The
people, alternately the prey of military chief
tains at home, and ambitious invaders abroad,
have sometimes been cheated out of their lib
erties by* servile demagogues sometime be
trayed into a surrender of them b}- false pa
riots ; ami sometimes they have willingly
sold them for a price to the despot who has
bidden highest lor his victims. They have
warning voice of their best
statesnv.n, and have persecu'ed and driven
from (ffice their truest friends. They have
listened to the counsels of fawning sycophants
or base calumniators of ihe wise and good.—
fhey have reverenced power more in its high
abuses and summary movements than in Us
calm and constitutional energy when it dis
pensed blessings with ai\ unseen but literal
hand. They have surrendered to faction
what belong< dto the common interests and
rights of the country. Patronage ard party,
the triumph of an artful p< pular leader, and
ihe discontents of a day have outweighed, in
their view, all solid principles and institu
tions (< government. Such is the melanchol
ly lessons of the past history of republics,
dowu to our own.
SCENE IN AN AMERICAN COURT.
There was a hush in the police court room
as the red-nosed Judge to>>k his seat upon
the bench, and in a pompous tone of authori
ty shouted. ' I'jing the prisoner into court."
' H-re I nm, bound to blaze, as the spirit of
turpentine said when it was all a fire," said
the prisoner. "We'll take a little fire out of
you. How do you live J" asked the judge.
"I hain't particular, as ihe oyster said, when
they asked him if he'd or fried."
'.We don't want to know what the oyster
said, or the spirit of turpentine either.--
What do you follow?" "Anything that
comes in my way, as the locomotive said
when she ran over a little nigger." "Don't
care anything about the locomotive. What
is your business ?" That's various, as the
cat said when she stule the chicken off the
table." If I hear any more absurd compari
sons, I will give you twelvemonths." "I'm
dune as the beef stake said to the cook,"
"Now sir, your punishment, shall depend on
the shortness and correctness of your an
swers. I suppose you live by going round
the dock." No, sir, 1 can't go round the
docks without a coat, and I han't got none."
"Answer nie sir! How do yoa get your
bread ?" "Sometimes at the baker's, and
sometimes I eat taters." "No more of your
stupid nonsense. How do you support your
self? t ' "Sometimes on my legs, and some
times on a chair. "II"W do you do?"
"Pretty well, I thank you judge. llow do
you do? "I shall have to commit you."
"Well, vou've committed yourself first, that's
one consolation." The prisoner went out of
court with aj-rk, and was hastened to jail
American Joe Miller.
A BEE'S NFSTIN A MAN'S IIEAD.—Some
visitors to the battle field of the Seven
Pines last week picked up a remarkably
well-developed skull, in which a colony of
bees had built their home. It was evidently
a last j r ear's nest, for the bees were gone,
though the nest remained perfect.
A soliloquy as touching as that pronounced
by HiraUt over the skull of Yorick might
be suggested by this skull, and the strange
incident of its becoming the habitation
of bees. Whose was it? Nobody
knows. Yes, Romebody once knew the
owner well, and some heart broke when he
came not back from the bat tle.
The skull that once, perchance, was ani
maled by rare intelligence, that intelligence
gone, becomes the resting place of bees.—
1 To what base use may we come at last."
A WORD TO APPRENTICES.—Stick to your
trade, boys, and learn how to work if you
wish to be Independent. There is no more
pitiable sight than a half learned mechanic
app'yinr for work. He is alwavs at the foot
of the b d, and labor aa he may, unless he
has become perfect in his trade before he
attains the agp f maturity, he can calculate
on poverty as his portion, with a good deal
of safety. Parents, if you wish well of your
children, urge them to learn tbeir trades

A WAGON BILLIARDS.— As a great many
people don't know how to play billiards, we
make way for a description of the game from
the pen orDoesticks, in order that they may
remain in ignorance no longer. lie says :
"A gatne of billiards consists of pushing ivo
ry balls about on a table covered with green
cloth that IODKS like a half an acre of tneadow
land with an India rubber fence around it.
The balls are punched with long wooden
ramrods, with wax on the little end to save
the wood and leather Irom wearing out.
You take your ramrod and rub some chalk
on the trhte end ; then you lean over the
table; then you sq'nt ; then you lift your
log ; then tiddle a little on your left hand
with your ramrod, then you punch your ball.
If your hall hits the other man's hall, you've
done a big thing, and you poke a lot of but
tons that arc strung on a wire* This is all
there is to a game of bill ards. Anybody
can punch billiards ; 1 can, and may be you j
At Lexington, the historic town of the Re

glass into a window, when a groom who was
standing by, began joking him, telling him to
put in plenty of putty. The Irishman bore
the banter for some time, but at last silenced
the tormentpr bv—
"Arrah now, ho off wid ye, or ele I'll put

To have a fr ghtfui dream is a sign you ate
too much supper.
HINTS TO BATHTRS.— At this warm MMOI
when|bathing is so popular,it i swill to obssrvo
the following hints : On first plonging into
the cold water there comes a shock which
drives the blood to the central parts of the
system. But immediately a reaction takes
place, which is assisted by the exercise of
swimming, producing, even in water of a low
temperature, an agreeable warmth. The
stay in the water should never be prolonged
beyond the period of this excitement. If j
the body be left while this warmth oontinnes
and the body immediately dried, the healthy
glow over the whole surface will be delight
To remain in the water after the firat re
action is ovor produces s prolonged chilliness,
a shrinking of the flesh, end a contraction of
the skin, by no means favorable to health or
enjoymeut; for it is only in water thorough
ly warmed by the summer heats, where we
may bathe for many hours with impunity.
Certain precautions are necesaary. Mod
erate exercise, by summoning into action the
powers of the system, and quickeniog the
circulation, is better than inactivity. We
should never go into water immediately after
a meal nor while the process of digestion ie
going forward. Nor Rhouid we plunge into
the water when violently heated, or in n
state of profuse perspiration. Such impru
dences are often fatal, especially if the water
be unusually cold, If too warm, the temper
ature of the body may be reduced by bathing
the wrists and wetting the head.
Before meals rather than after, and tape*
cially before breakfast and before snpper, are
proper seasons for bathing. The heats of the
day are to be avoided, but in very hot weeth
era bath is useful to cool the blood and se
cure refreshing sleep. If in the middle of
the day, a shaded place should be chosen, or
the heat protected from the sun by being
kept wet or by wearing a straw hat.
PORTRAIT OF A REVEREND GOVERNOR It
is an unprecedented thing, almost, if not
quite, for a clergyman to be made Governor
ola State. Parson Brownlow, however, hai
been made Governor of Tennessee, and a cor
respondent cf the F. Y. Mercury, who is per
sonally acquainted with his Excellency,draws
his pen and ink portrait thus :
"A dusty, sallow man,— all gall and bins
ter. He is Scotch Irish by birth, and a shou
ting Methodist preacher by profession ; fierce
rather than strong, an uncomfortable friend,
and an ugly enemy. He is a tall and awk
ward man, wi th large hands and shambling
