Willi a sudden feeling of mori ificai ion at being caught, Jane ru.-hed into lb" clu?ot ami closed the door. The .-ouud of uncle Jo-h. tin 's voice struck her ear as he entered. 'Are you . -urc she is not at home?' said he to the girl. 'O. yes, sir quite sure, I saw le-r put on her thinps and go on1.' 'Mow long has fIio hern gone?' 'Full an hour.' said i be gul; who, as these kind of people often do, overacted her part. 'Then probably she will be back soon, rind I will wait for her. 'O, no, nr. (-he t-aid -ho should not be back till near dinner lime.' 'Why, you look as if you were gninr to have a company of Alderman lo dine.' The girl nnsworid in a simpering tone, 'No sir, only two or three friends.

The girl, loo, had so positively implicated her m a falsehood, bad shown so completely that she under stood no qualification, t hui Jane fell the tit most horror at being detected. She nctu ally looked out ot Iho window, to sec if there was no possibility of escape. In the mean time, uncle Josbun laid down his bat and cane, scntcd himself by the open win dow, and aiked for a glass of water. Jane at length came to the conclusion that f ho bad belter remain prlectly quiet. that bis calls were not very long, and she would send for him the next day. and should escape all unplcnsonl fueling. " To her dis may," however, she presently heard him call for (he morning's paper. She knew ho was one of those inveterate newspaper readers, that go through ibe whole, nnd she tried to be resigned to at least an hour's imprisonment. Alas! whut a situation ! The dinrur at n stand, the marketing would bn hack, nml ducks and gee.-e in waiting ! At length, however, uncle Jo.-bua got to nn end of the everlasting newspaper ; and ns ho folded it up, told the girl who had en tcrcd the room every five minutes, to nay to bis niece, that he was very sorry not lo fcc her but could not wait anv longer.' Then turning suddenly upon the closet door, lie gru?ped the handle 'Sir, sir,' exclaimed the girl, 'that is tbo wrong door. It was loo late. Ha turned tbo lock, nnd the door, caino open, Tho'o stood Jano in one corner, as pale as a lily, but I lie color ot a lull grown pinny. Hh stir prise for a mnnicnt was extreme. But be was not slow of comprehension j nnd tbo truth lushed upon him greatly exaggerated for be believed it was n couinvnnce to nvoid seeing him. He stood silent with his eyes fixed upon her. 'Dear uncle,' snid she, I thought it was a stranger, I did not know it wns you when I ran into the closet. 'Silence,' saol he. 'no inorn falsehoods. Begone !' turning lo the chamber maid. 'And you l ave learned that poor ignornut girl, lo peril her soul by falsehood: ! Jane, I hnvo loved you like my own child; but I nhall I rouble you no inure.

And be Ihrn'.v himself upon n chair, and put his handkerchief lo bis eye. 'My dear uncle only lion r me; I told the girl to say I bat I was not nt home if any body called ?

I am glad I did it ; it is a good lesson for ynu. 'It is, indeed, uncle,' I promise you I will never say I am not at homo again when I am.' 'Cooped up.' continued he, again laugh ing, in cine corner like a mouse in a cheese; and there you had been shut up a whole hour, 'ike n naughty child.

When Frank returned, he expressed hN pleasure at seeing uncle Joshua ; for, how ever unfashionable ami inelegant ho might deem him In' could not refuse him his tri bute of respect. The guests were men of good sense nnd intelligence. They were struck with the independence nnd originality of uncle Joshua'-- chnracler. I le converged without timidity or affecta tion, and fell mortification at not knowing whnt never came within the sphere of his observation. All this. Jane would have highly enjoyed, could she have spared any lime from her dinner Tim servant was a raw country lad, who required being told when to lake a plate and whern to put one. The boiled turkey won ovor done, nnd the ducks over done; the oyster sauce spoilt before it reached I he table, nnd by tho time dinner was over, she looked ns red ns if he hnd been cooking, herself. When Jane rose to leave Iho table, her uncle raid he would go with her lo see the children. They repaired to the nurserv. found lliem with empty plates, greased to iho ears, loudly vocifornting for Sally. Iho chamber, maid, who was sitting below, to bring Ibem ninro dinner. Jane at last succeeded in quieting them, and told her uncle ibnt the nurserv maid loft them Iho day before. The Misses Fultnns, with one voice, snid 'Hurrah! ii was n good dav for Ibem; for she wns so cross they bated her.' After uncle Jiishua had niado bis visit to them be said, 'now, Jane, I want to see you n lone jano leu nie wny with tenrlnl misgivings ; for she saw a shade of melancholy on bis countenance. My dear,' snid ho, 'sit down by mo, nnd taku every thing kindly ns I menu it. You know I first opposed your marriage, bo causo 1 thought your husband could not make enough lo support you; but after wards I saw I was mistaken. I saw you net only comfortable, bill possessing ' all that seemed necessary ; for then, you wore inodcrato in your desires nnd oxpeuscs. 1 hnvo s'uico felt mi-givings, when I saw you increase your manner of living. But I said, they know their own means, nnd I be beved lint you were, nt least hnppier; hut, indeed Jane, I must sny that I find it other wibc. When I last dined wilh you, in It street, your dinner wns uimple, nnd well cooked, your liltlc emiling children around was loiilciii mugs with os much onto as ho wns inn kin inars' n'--. Mnrnt had just been transferred from I ho Grniul Dn'chy of lierg lo the throne of Naples, when one morning carriage drove into niv court yard, nnd lady alighted from it. Ah, mierinordc! I exclaimed, is her Imperial Highness the l'rinci'ss dc Guastnllii, (Madame Ilorghoio iho oca ii 1 1 1 ii 1 1 . inline IJonn purlo.)

It tvn-i Scylla and Chnrybdis ! 1 might perhaps hnvri feigned not to recog nise Emperor, but with a mo-t imperative gesture ho beckoned me lo him. 1 there fore turned to the right about, and leaving the Princes to liod her own wny lo Iho drawing room, unattended, I hurried to the Emperor. 'Prince." aid he, ns soon ns I was in hi presence, "I l;now that mv sister wishes n speak with you. Show me into an adjoining room, where 1 may hear her break her thunder holts. Siy what you can to ap pease but do not pledge mo for any thing, (in to her quickly she will never forgive you for keeping her waiting." I thought of the fainl position ofGer inanicu.s with Nero, in Racine's tragedy in the scene in which Junio complains to the former of the cruelly of th - latter. 1 had prepared myself for a most violent re ception, but all mv expectations fell short of reality. Tho Pnucess, ns soon as she saw me, taxed me with w.inl of re. t-peet, nnd complained of not bnving found me wailing to receive her at the door of my hotel. This first ebiibtion of ill hu mor being exhausted, I t-nid : "Madam, if your Imperial Highness hail been pleased lo give me notice ol of your intention lo confer on mc this lion or, I should undoubtedly have observed the doe etiqutte. Rut, ns 1 mil not en dowed with prescience, it was only n few minutes ago that I lea ned, from my servants that the sisier of our august moil nrcb was in my house." "His si-ier, sir ! rather say nn iinfor. tunalo a forsaken a miserable slave !" "Is it possible, inadanie, I bat. enjoying as you do the favor of bis imperial Ma josiy, you can havo any cause of coin plaiiii ?" "His favor ! What n mockery !

With ihe.-o words, she burst into a flood of tears. I'ho. cnpricioii-- beauty had chan ged her imperious tone to otienl supination him lender reproach. The Princes Pan- mo was certainly a most faseioatin.'i wo man, but nt Hint moment she r.ppeared lo be more eln rning tliancvcr. I could not wonder al the ifcetidaucy she gained ov r the Emperor. He wan at first mi a violent rage; bul In-- anger was gradually soothed, nod, when Pauline slopped short "in her ap peal to him, and burn into tenrs, he ndvnn ccd to her and said nH'uctinnalelv. My ih'nr sister, v-hy are you not nalis- fied? 1 am doing al.I can fur von. King doins cannot be created nt my will, lie sld"s, your hu-hand not a Frenchman. "Let me haven ditorecjhen." "Ilea veil forbid?" "1 will be n Queen, or I will go lo Lon don.'; "You shall go to Vinccnnes." "1 defy you! I will strangle myself as I enter." 1 know not what crcnnisinncn was re called to Napoleon's mind hv this threat; but bis brow lowered, his eyes flashed, nnd he bit his lips nil he nlino-l drew blood; and then in a voice faltering with emotion, he exclaimed : "So lunch Ihe borer, nindime ! You will rid me of a termagant whom I find more difficult lo govern than all Europe to gethor ! I see that vou are only to be ruled hv a rod of iroi,. 1 therefore coin mand you to go iniircdiatelv lo Madame Mere, and ihere nwnt the orders which the Piinco A rcb-CI ancellor shall deliver to you from me." "Then you w ill make mo n Queen? I inusi be crowned." "Really, Pauline, to hear you one would iningino I lint I bail wronged you of youi right of siiccc.-siou to the late King our fa' her." I hail never before known the Emperor lo have recour.-e to tuts sort of pleasantry, bul I olieu afterwards heard him employ -miliar language. On tlio occasion which I have been describing, Ibis good humored touch of satire had an excellent effect. Pauline blushed, mid a rapid glance al Ihe pisi temindjgl l'r of le-r humble origin, contrasted as it was wilh Iho high rank to which her brother had raided her. A sud den change was efi'-'O'ed in her feelings, -he hung down her head, and wns evident ly mortified and ashamed. Nopoleon nsk ed her whether she had come alone. She nnmed one of iho ladies, I do not recollect whom, nnd said she was wailing in another ainiriui'Mit. ' Lot her come in," snid the Emperor. I rang the order was given, and the lady appeared. The Emperor directed her not to lose sight of the Princes IJorghesc, and then, turning to in", ho added: "Let us retire to your cabinet." "I am al your MaiosH's disposal," rc plied I, Inn permit me first to observe the ceremony due to the Princess." "Well, well! only be quick.'" II,. proceeded to my cabinet, anil I corted the Princess to her carriage. As soon :w I had got rid of her. I flow to wait upon ibe Emperor. I found him walking about the room wilh hurried steps. "Well, Prince !" snid he, ns soon ns I entered, "this is one of ihe thousand disa greeable, scenes which, tyrant, as they say I am, 1 am compelled lo endure.

Respected Friend Editor: When I was a young mm now between tinny anil forty years sine.' 1 bail occa-ion lo cross your Green M nintaiu S'ate. from the beau tiful C Jiuiec' icut to Lake Ciianiplain, four times. But from Hint time to '.he past yenr, I have not been within Hint State. W it tin. tlw pi-t year, I again bad occasion to cross Vermont, from Windsor oo Iho En?l. to Burliiigion on the Wc-t, nnd wit nessed will) pleasure, the growth and im provements H:at have been made, in com fort and conveniences, so remarkable ap parent in all the New-England Stales. But I was !-oinehow struck' with the con viction that, not only Ihe inhabitants of divers: seel ions and regions of your State, but mi uierou - eti igrauts who.travcrse from tine sec' mn of count ry to another, in search of "go'id land," are qtn'e ignorant of the f.ilue--- id' Hie roil, ns well as ihe important privileges 'A your Sia'e over mid above iho "Far West," now-a-days so eagerly sought a'tor b, the ri'sle:-s and the ambitions. In travelling from Bor'ington, on the Stage Roatl leading to Sianslcad, as far as Lamoille River, considering Iho goodness of the land and the low price of cultivated farms, it appeared to mc a region altogeth er worthy the attention of enterprising farmers not lo nnme o'her clns-n. We well know that this is poi a soil and cli mate suited to tho growth of co'lrn or cane; but ii is suited to other growths equally productive, all ihings considered. For gras ng. it appears to mo thai no hnd exceeds n ; and Hie location is almost un rivalled for raising e.T.tle mid sheep When we take into view Hie contiguity of i hi region to Burlington on Lake Cham, plain, nml .the easy water counnuiiiontbn thence to Albany on the Hudson, and to New York, the great Linden o Ameiica, we may be struck with no small degree of a-ioni-hmei)! . Hut such advantage? should be overlooked by a quick sighted, decern ing people I nui led to believe Hint a far mo r. with live or ten ihoti.-and dollars, free from embarrassment, could hardly in any mlicr region hotter invest bis capital, nml improve his facili'ics, for his own benefit ami tho benefit of his IV-llow men. I may just observe, here, that I own no propuiiy, of any kind, within the S'ate, to Inn-s my (lpti)ton ; nor do I ever expect to-, being mv-elf si-tiled in l be h lokselltug bu siness in the city of New York. There was anoih r subj 'ct that arrested my niteniioii, and grieved my feelings ; and the one which was tho procuring cause of ilnscfl'irt lobe useful to my fellow men. It wns, ns I conceived, a mistaken policy, or economy, pursued by those farmers who raise sheep, at the season of shearing, now approaching. After some week,? of warm weather, du ring which Hie sheep have been burdened, with an abundant lleece, ihey are shorn of the whole at once, which causes them to suffer during l he nights of mmi-rato weath er; and in cold siorm-, unless iho farmer litis provided s mho arbor for ibem to run under, a great loss is su-latucd, in tbo health, mid frequently in (he life of tho flock. "Blessed nre the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy ;" mid this mercy, I believe, it is our bounden duly to extend, not only to nil the human family, but to all dumb nnimuld. Tho truly uie'rciful man is merei. fnl to the bruto creation, as well ns to his own species. Bul interest and economy, it would seem, would prompt to tho removal of the evil now under consideration, Ono farmer informed mo that he liadTiost sixty sheep, Hie past season, by turning out his tloek after shenring witliiiut provi ding a shelter for them. Sad neglect ! which no provident fanner should suffer himself to overlook, Two bovs, of fif teen, could, in a day or two. buu!d a bower sufficient for two hundred shcCp'to run tin. dor in a storm. It could ho done wilh posts hnd poles, covered, four feet from the ground, wub pine or hemlock boards, nt the expanse often or filteen dollars, nnd would hist lor years. The farmer who neglects such n preparation, mid depends on bringing up Ins fiock to tho barn in tbo time of n s'urni, leu to one, will in lime nejlecl his sheep nllogelber.
