A Skatch from Life. Br OUR FAMILY PHTSICIAX. I had already had some skill and noto iiety in my treatment of pulmonary com plaints, and traveling north one summer for health and rest, i stopped for a few weeks at a beautiful little village near the St. I-awrence where I was somewhat known. I had only been in the village two days when I was called to see the young daughter ot a wealthy tarmer by the name of Summer. Ida Summer had been the belle of the county, and theugh only seventeen, her marvellous beauty had alteiidy kindhd a quenchless tire in the heart of many a suitor to her favor. Frank, confiding and at once playful and modest, arch vet innocent, fuil of wild spirits, yet utterly devoid of coquetry ?to see her was to love her. I found the peerless girl, whom I had remembered from the summer befjre as buoyant and rosy with health, pale and wan as a summer cloud and apparently in the last and closing stages of a deep decline. A careful investigation into the state of her lungs convinced me that hers was a mental rather than a physical con sumption. I studied her case carefully, watched the various expressions of hei sp;?king face, and at last came to the conclusion that her malady was one ol the heart. Of unrequited affection ? I could not think that?beautiful and good as she was. The case was a difficult one. Ten derly a*d gently I probed every soaud ing, but could arrive at no conclusion. Thus much 1 discovered?that she pos sessed no particular regard for any one of the youths far or near, whose name I could get hold of. And notwithstand ing all my efforts she seemed rapidly declining. I made minute inquiry into her past life; but cautiously, as not to let my mo tives be apparent. I learned that she had spent a few weeks of the winter pre ceding with an intimate friend in an ad joining town, and fxom that time had I begun to fade. ' To that town I repaired ; but by close5t inquiry could ascertain nothing. To all alike she had been friendly, but nothing more. The clergyman of ths church which she had attended was a young man, but one given to study and seclusion' She had consequently seen nothing of him except in the polpit. I had made a pretext to call on him, and found him a man altogether made after the model of what might be the highest aspirations of woman s heart. In fact, all the unengaged young ladies of his parish were well nigh crazy about him. But to all he accorded nothing but a friendly greeting ; and leaving them all, sought the privacy of his own stud v. lie was eminently handsome, and add ed to his tall, manly form and beautiful ly ci iseled features, he possessed a be uignity of expression that was nearly divine. I had much conversation with him, and, among other things, I casuallv men tioned Ida Summer and her evidently dy ing state, enlarging somewhat on her beauty and gexKiness. Ilis color deepened somewhat as he as sented to my remarks, and expressed his own regrets at her untimely fate; but otherwise he manifested no emotion. 1 remarked, before I left him, that it was time for him te give his pretty par sonage a mistress. " I may many years frcm now," re plied he with a sudden and deepening sadness; 44 but I early learned to dis trust the disinterested and abiding affec tion of our inoderu young women. If I marry I shall probably marry late in life.* 44 A fallacy, take my word for it, Mr. Stuart. Our modern women, some of them, are as fond and true as any of the dames of old. The thing is to tind the right .one." And thus saying^ 1 bade him good morning. On my return I found my patient rather lower than I left her. I told her I had been to the village of . Suddenly and tumultuously the warm b'.ood rushed up to her bosom and her face, and she looked at me with her soft inquiring eyes. I told her of her friends, and casually mentioned the name of tho young cler gyman. Robert Stuart. To her 'clear, blue-veined temples the same truant blood sped with fearful force. 1 had seen enough. I knew her dis ease, and most probably its remedy. 1 instantly wrote a note to Mr.y Stuart, merely saying: 44 If you would save a life, lose not a moment in hastening to , (the name of the town.) 1 will await you at my lodgings." 1 signed my name, and dispatched it by a private messenger. Sooner than I expected, the young cler gyman was at my hotel, t had prepared Ida for a conversation with a clergyman, specifying, however, no one in particu lar. I led him to her chamber, saw her blush and start of joy and modesty. What then and there tianspired, no one but the great scarchei of hearts and the two of his choicest handiwerk thus ? brought together?a dying girl and a minister of heaven?can answer. I left ' them alone as long as I thought her weak state might bear, and when I opened the 1 door I found him sitting beside her tad,* her slender hand fast locked in his, and his soul-beaming eyes pouring life and love upon her. My eyes filled with tears as I caught a sight ot her radiant face, so full of peace and serene bliss and life, but the t%ars 1 shed were the teais of joy. My patient, with almost out bjuad, a <v?Mniwne of tw*?ty per mt. regained hei health and strength, and the glorious representative of God a min ister upon earth, changing his mind upon the Fulject of matrimony in favor orthe ?right one,' is now one of the few truly happy men on earth: happy in a life mar riage with one every way congenial with him, and every way worthy of him. OPKR& GLASSES TELESCOPES The New Orleans liee contains thefoi U>wing accouot of the ojiera glass difficul ty which occurred recently in the St. Charles Theatre, in New Orleans, and which has been heretofore mertioned: *'A few nights ago. a great deal of an noyance was experienced by ladies in the Jresa circles of the St. Charles Theatre, | in consequence of the conduct of a com pany of seamen who brought their tele scopis to that establishment, and used them as opera glares. They caused aev erai ladies to leave the theatre, and as they persisted in their iingentlemanly conduct, in spite of the loudly eipressed J sapprobation of the audience, a cry of ?turn them out' was raised, and the sug ge.stion was carrie<l into execution. Crn Siturday evening, a larger but loss im I pvrtinent party of sailors again appeared I a? ihc St. Charles, and again called their I telescopes into requisition. There were I a- lea^t twelve persona provided with 1 these instruments, and they were sup I portcil by a large uumber of their com I rxdes who had determined, we believe, I to aid them in disputing their right to rc I main, if any attempt to eject them I should be made by the officers of the I theatre. "Whenever any gentleman, or person I in male attire, levelled an ofiera class at I :'ne party, twelve telescopes were iastant I ly directed at him, and so remained till I Le laid it down, or turned it away to an lo'herpartof the house, when the sea I i?rlass;s were immediately lowered. There I were at first several loud demonstrations I < f disapprobation at this conduct: but I when ii was seen that the seamen never I once directed their telescopes at a lady, I even when the ladies turned their glasses I %t them, these symptoms of indignation I gradually subsided, and would soon have I ? atirely ceased had not a loy appeared I in the parquette with two soda glass bot I ties, piaced parallel to each other like the I'barrels'of an opera-glass, and directed I his extempore ,eye-in<trument' at the I party of seamen- The shcuts of laughter I and applause which announced ths boy's I -vppetrance in the parquette, brought Mr. I De Bar, the gentlemanly manager of the I St. Charles, before the curtain, to address I the aud'.ence. lie began by expressing I his astonishment at a party of men who I were endeavoring to destroy the reputa I tion of his establishment, although he I had done them no injury whatever. il?re a sailor ro>e in his seat, and at I tempted to speak, but he was instantly I silenced by a storm of hisses and cries I of "turn him out." Mr. De Bar re I quested the audience to hear what the man had to say. Unwillingly this per mission was granted. The sailor denied that it was their wish to injure him ; de nied having annoyed any lady ; said that they Lad never commenced, in a single instance, the iiL|Krtinence com plained of: that they had never raised the r telescopes excepting when an opera g.ass was levelled at theui by a gentle man. (llisses from the opera-glass hold ers: applause from the parquette; cries of l4go<Kl." ?'this is a free country,'' and "that's true," from the galler.es, fol lowed this statement.) The sailor said thit they would ;nstantly leave the thea tre if desired: but they would raise their telescopes if they remained, whenever any gentleman taised his opera g!a*s at them. He thought he had as good a right to use a single-barrelled telescope as the others had to use "double-bar relled opera glasses. As what the sailors said in their defence was strictly true, a compromise was effected: the opera-glass holders discontinued their impertinence, and the telescopes were not raised again. Hints to Bacukiajrs.?If a lady con descends to flirt with you, merely for the fun of seeing you wriggle, believe she is heartily in love with you. and then pre sume upon that litlief. You will very probably find your neck-tie twisted in the hand of a big brother. Stare at every lady you meet in the street. An acquaintance with her is a matter of the least importance?the more you don't know, the more you should insult. She will probably feel like recol lecting your features for a particular pur pose. If you have enjoyed the acquaintance of a young lady before her marriage, im prove it atU'rwards. Call very frequently at her house wheniier husband is absent attending to his business. There arc plenty of scandal mongers who will say, " You're lucky,'' and will inform the husband. By a sly wink, when the lady is mentioned, insinuate you know all about her?insinuate by a negative smile what you dare not say. You will have the satisfaction of knowing that you have placed an eternal abyss between that husband and wife, and ruined their happiness forever. Moral Fragrance.?44 What a pitr," said a little boy to his father as they walked through the garden, ?? that the rose after blooming, does not producc fruit, and thus return a thank-offering in summer for the lovely season of its spring life. Now, it is called the flower of in nocence and joy; then it would be also tie emblem of gaatitude.'1 The father cuswered, 44 Does it not offer all its iove ness to beautify the spring, and for the dew and light which it receives from above, does it not fill the air with its 1 delicate fragrance ? Thus, like giatitude, b.stowing a charm unseen, which en hances every other good. Creatad for the spring, it dies with the spring; but its withered leaves retain a portion of it? ?,weet fra?ra:ice: 90 in the heart of in uocmcc does gratitude abide. afttr the kind -de?d, which called it forth is for gotten iu our breasts.?hfammdiker.
