If they have not got to write love-letters
of their own, the chances of life or of
profession bring them generally in con-
act with the love-letters of other peo-
ple ; and general experience agrees in
this, that there is no branch of litera
ture co universally cultivated to so very
little purpose or use. Love-letters
ought, on theory, to be full of genius.
They contain, or are - supposed to con
tain, the young gushings of nature
and of the heart. And it is very mach
in favor of the writers that they write
in moments of considerable exaltation
and mean what they write to be seen
only by one pair of liquid eyes. At
Caps 1 1
such a taelcone"would think only a very
stupid man would fail ; but, on the con
trary, one finds that very few men suc
ceed. Perhaps, at the time, it is not of
much consequence whether the author
ie fortunate in a literary point of view
or not, as the only critic to whom his
efforts are submitted is usually blindly
partial, and perhaps not pinch of a lit
eraryjudge. Bat as clever women every
now and then are fascinating", and men
do happen to fall in love with them, it
is necessary to have some sensible views
as to what a letter of the sort, directed
to a competent critic, should contain.
And inasmuch as, in the present condi
tion of society and the law, nobody can
be quite certain that his love-letters
may not hereafter be published, either
for the benefit of newspapers or for pos.
terity, it is important that people should
begin to give their minds to doing their
epistolatory duties well and in a manner
calculated to bring no disgrace upon I
themselves or their education. What
ruins most love-letters is not the senti-
ment, or the unwordliness that under
lies them, so much as an adherence to a
common form,• which is not by any
means based upon the rules of the
highest art. The leve-letters of trades
men and half-educated people, whenev
er they turn up in the papers, are al-
ways full of little commonplaces, which
the writers appear to consider appropri-
ate to the situation. They never seem
able quite to make up their mind wheth
er it is the correct thing to call the
beloved object thou or you; and the
second person plural keep blundering
up against one another in a manner
that must be heart-rending to any young
tradesman's mistress who is much of a

pondence. and the Brittish tradesman
does_it without a murmur ; but his
share in it generally consists of assuran
ces that when he got back to hie shop
after leaving the lady otitis affection he
could not sleep a wink, but that even in
the dark watches of the night he is
"thine, fondly thine." The young mil
liner to whom it is addressed is far bet
ter pleased that these little common
forms should not be left out. Love-let
ters, like a trousseau, a wedding break
fast, and a trip out of town, are the
proper incidents of courtship and mar
riage. Other young milliners have had
them, and it would be painful thing to
think they were to be omitted, The I
happy tradesman is bound to gratify so
harmless a sentiment of feminine dignity,
and flourishes away with his these and
thous in order to keep pace with his
and his fair mistress' conceptions of
what a love-letter ordinarily is and what
it is designed to be.
The love-lettere of educated people
are doubtless less grotesque, but educa
ted people have their own common
forms, which to cold and - rational" ob
servers would appefir possibly little less
ridiculous in the long run. The poetry
of 'the times has a good deal to say to
the love-letter'of the period.
Gr An exchange tells the , following
characteristic story of the poet writer;
On a recent occasion he was traveling
with a friend over a New Hampshire
railroad, and during the conversation,
Whittier's friend—who is also a member
of the Society of Friends—told the poet
that he was on his way , to contract for
a lot of oak timber, which he knew would
be used in building gunboats at Pods
moath,and asked him whether he thought
it was exactly in consistence with the
peace doctrines of the Quaker denomina
tion. Without saying anything calcula
ted to decide the question,the two friends
arrived at their parting place, when
Whittier shaking his friend's hand, said
"Hoses if thee does furnish any of that
oakftimber ye spoke of, be sure that it
is all sound."
lir A foreign journal states that a
man, with the instincts and habits of a
wolf, has lately been discovered in a
pack of wolves in the kingdom of Oude,
India. Wolves abound in that country
and children are often carried off by
them : and the theory in this case is,
that an infant was carried off by a she
wolf, adopted and raised to manhood,
and now presents the appearance of a
Inman wolfe. The creature has been
caught, clothed, and is now kept by a
gentleman living in a town some eight
hundred miles from Calcutta. He does
not speak, eats his food on the ground,
and avoids the gaze of the human eye.
A' The following 'is valuable : "For
one pound of coffee take one egg and
beat it well. When the coffee is nicely
browned and cool enough not to cook
the egg, pear the egg over it, stirring it
until every kernel is coated with a var
nish, and let it stand a few minutes in a
warm place until it dries. This will pre
vent the escape of all aroma, is not affec
ted by moisture, and the egg helps settle
the coffee when it is ground and steep

The Meriden (00nn.,) Visitor tells
of a suicide at Hanover, in that town,
lately, in which a man named Perkins
cut his throat and fell dying in the barn
yard. We quote : "In this condition he
was found by one of the ladies of the
house,. Oh I is this you, Henry Perkins?
she exclaimed. He lifted his wilting
eyes from his weltering gore, and faintly,
though measuredly, replied, 'This is Hen
ry Perkins,' and expired immediately."
erSaturday afternoon some workmen
in Louisville dug a deep pit into which
to drain a vault. A workman at the
bottom heedlessly struck a pick into a
thin partition wall between the pit and
vault. He was at once everpowered by

ly decended the ladder to rescue their
predecessors, and all perished, nobly
striving to save the lives of their friends.

his own fraternity the other day, whose

Anecdote of a Dog,
Those who take an interest—and who
does not 7—in the faithful attachment '
of dumb animals to their owners, may
perswi- with pleasure the following anec
dote, which, from the character of the
journal relating it (a French scientific
journal of high repute,) doubtless pos
sesses the element of truth : The pro
prietorof a chateau, in the neighborhood .
of Cassel, died a short time since, and
his remains, amid a wide spread grisf.
were lowered into the family vault, anti
deposited on a sarcophagus in the
subterranean chapel, pending the com
pletion of certain operations necessary
to prepare the place destined to receive
the - coffin. The deceased had owned a
hound, to which he was particularly
attached, and Lucy returned his affec
tion with double interest. At the death
of her master the poor beast would not
quit his death chamber, and was seen
on the morrow, with his head bowed
down and eye mournful and sad, follow
ing with mournftil steps the funeral
cortege, accompanying to its last rest
ing place the body of him of whom she
had been so fond. After the ceremony,
when the friends and neighbors had
retired, the outlets of the vault were
carefully closed, and for .a• time no one
thought of Lucy ; but when at length
they sought her she could not be found,
notwithstanding the active search made
over, all the estate. The servant espe
cially charged with the careof the ken
nel suggested that, as Lucy was with
young, she had been prostrated in some
cave or hollow in the neighborhood, as
she had heen in times liefore. In the
meantime the workmon were sent for
to complete the detaita,ef.the interment,
but it was not till 14r,the-lapee of ten
days that they corkid..got to the tomb,
The first visit to the. remains of one so
justly lamented was made with a cer
emonious solemnity. Bat what, a spec
tacle presented itself to the view of the
visitors I The pall had been palled off,
the lid of the coffin torn open, and upon
the breast of the deceased there lay
another corpse—that of poor- Lucy,
who, without doubt, after having borne
her litter, had come to die upon the
body of her master. In a corner of the
vault were found, expiring, the seven
little ones, whom the poor mother had
ceased to nourish because she had
ceased to live. It is difficult to imagine
the labor the faithful creature must
have gone through in order to lay bare
.the body of her master whom she would
seem to have wished to come to life
again. The cover of the coffin had
been gnawed open ; the shroud was in
pieces; but the corpse remained intact.
GrA young married lady named
Downs, residing in Springfield, Mass.,
on Saturday, left her home and took
the cars for Hartford, in company with
a young man not her husband. Here
was a glorious piece of scandal, and
most gloriously was it improved by one
of those watchmen around the social
camp, of the feminine persuasion, who
scent depravity as far as a certain
class of birds can smell the carcasses
they love to pray upon. So she hasten

membered that she had arranged in the

gentleman as escort. So the next train
takes him to Hartford, and the swiftest
horses thence to Waterbury. And
when he got there he found his wife had
been accompanied by her own brother,
who had arrived just in time to take the
cars with her, and not soon enough to
call on him at his place of business.—
