IV EVENING STAR. 1 MY HUSBAND. My husband is a very strange man. I io think how he could have grown so I provoked about such a little thing as that scarlct scarf. Well, there's no use try ing to drive him. I've settled that in mv mind. But he can be coaxed, can't he though ! ?and from this time henceforth shan't I know how to manage him m Still, there's no denying, Mr. Adams is a very strange man. \ou see, it was this morning at break-1 fast, I said to him, ?? Henry, I must have one of those ten dollar scarfs at Stewart's. They are perfectly charming, and will correspond so nicely with my maroon I wlvct cloak. I want to go out this! morning and get one, before ihey are all I gone." "Ten dollars don't grow on every bush, I Adeline ; and just now times arc pretty I hard, you know," he answered in a dry, I careless kind of tone, which irritated me J greatly. Beside that, I knew he could afford to get me the scarf just as well as not; only perhaps, my manner of re questing it did not quite suit his lord ship. "Gentlemen who can aflord to buy .satin vests at ten dollars apiece can have I no motive but penuriousness for objcct-1 ing to give their wives as much for a scarf,"' I retorted as I glanced at the money which a few raoments before h*-1 had laid by the sius of m y plate, request-1 ing me to procure odc lbr him; he al ways trusts my taste in these matters I I spoie angrily. 1 should have bteri sor-1 ry for it the next moment, if he had not I answered: { " You will then attribute it to my pc-| nunousness, I^uppose, wuen T tell you| I cannot let u have anclher ten dol-| 44 Well, then, I will take this and get I me the scarf. You can do without youi I vest for the present,'' and I to?k up the 1 bills and left the room, for he did not I answer me. j "I need it, nnd must have it," I so-1 Hloquised as I washed n?y tear swnl!er:| eyes, and adjusted my hair for a walk I down Broadway : but all the whib therf I was a slill small voice in my heart I '? Don t do it. Go and buy the vest foi I your husband," and at last (would youl believe it 1) that inner voice triumphed. I I went ?Jown to the tailor's, selected th. I vest and brought it home. ! 4- Here it is, Henry, T selected the color which I thought would suit you best. I Isn't it rich ?" I said, as I unfolded the! vest aiter dinner, for somehow mv pride ) was ali gone. 1 had felt ?o much hap-1 pier ever since I had resolved io forego I the scarf. I As he did not answer me, but there I was ruch a look of teudcrness filling LIfI dark handsome eyes, as his lips fell icl my forehead, that"it was as much as 1J could do to keep from crying outright. But I haven t told you the cream of the J story yet. At night, when he camel home to tea, he threw a little bundle into! my hp. Won doling greatly what it I could be, I opened it, and there (would!1 you believe it?) was the scarlet scarf,! the very one I set my heart on at Stew-11 art's yesterday. 44 Oil! Ilenry,5' said T, locking up and] trying to thank him, but my lips trem-1 bled, and then the tears dashed over the I eye-lashes, and he drew my head to his I heart, and smcoth:d down my curls, and I murmured the oid loving words in mi I ear, while I cried there a long time, bu\ I oh ! my tears were such sweet ones. lie is a strange man, my husband, bnt ho is a noble one too, only it is a little I hard to find it out sometimes, and i' | sec ins to ire my heart never Paid it sol deeply rs it docs to night. God biers I him l?N. Y. Visiter. , ? LiCiTALIiY AMO*G EACH2L0RP. The forlorn condition of bachelors lias always ueen a favorite theme for ladit*, J editors, and other wits to expatiate upon. I The untidy room, the buttouless shirts. I the stockings full of holes, and the thou sard other inconvenicnccs of the unmar-1 ricd stale are familiar, in this way, tol the most obtuse of us all. The poor bachelors have, in fact, a hard time of ;t. 'Ihey have been ridiculed by j the sex. and sometimes taxed by legisla tors, and now statieians deal them "the! unkindest cut of all." by proving that iLey die earlier than married men. The I celebrated Dr. Caspar, of Berlin, esti ir ates the mortality among the l>ach;.!or.s, between the ages of thirty and forty-Cve! | at twenty-seven per cent.; while the mor tality among married men, between the same ages, is only eighteen per cent. As lilii advances the diflerenco becomes even I , more sti iking. \\ here furty-one bache lors attain tiie age of forty, there are scv-1 ! enty-cight married men ; a tiiff-rence of nearly ten to one in favor of the latter. At the age of f-ixty there are forty eight married men to twenty two bachelors: at seventy, eleven bachelors to twenty-seven married men ; and at eighty, nine mar ried men to three bachelors. Ko bache lor, it is said, cvtr lived to be a hundied. Th'j reason fur the comparatively short lifo of the bachelor is obvious, t'f two men, exactly similar iu other rcspccts, except that one is married and the other not, the bachelor will have the more ir regular habiis. Gentlemen, when single, are twice as apt, as Dick Swiveller has, it, 44 to pass the rosy, ' ss when they are married; and especially to do it into what Burns calls 44 the wee sma' hours ayout the twal'." 'J'eu bachelors ting 4,we won't go home till morning," where one married vocalises in the same way. No doubt, to bachelor taste this is all very delightful. But brandy and water, cards, rt id omne genus, especially after miduight, take care to compensate them selves, in due season, for the lun that has been extracted from them. They may cast out the 44 bluee," so incident to the bachelor state, for the time being; but t ie 44 blues thus cast out invariably ie turn, bringing seven devils woto than f*r>reand among them are Roat> ferer \nd rheumatism, if not delinnm tremens wd death.

The evening before his death, while the vor? men were busy with the scaffold, a roung lady was ushered into his dungeon, t was the girl whom he so fondly loved md who had now come to bid him an* iernal farewell. lie was leaning in a uelan ihoiy mood agaiost the window of ae prison, and tha heavy clanking of us irons .smote dismally upon her heart :he intci view was bitterly affecting, and pelted even the callous soul of the jailor. Vs for Emmet, bespoke little; but as he iressed his bidoved in sil"nce to his bos >:a, his countenancc betraved his emo lons. In a low voice, half choked by ftguish, he besought her not to forget urn; he reminded her of their former hap >iness, of the long past days cf their hiid.'ocj, and con eluded by rcou^tiajp .er sometimes to visit the scenes where i.eir infancy was spent, and though the rorid might repeat their names with corn, to chng to his memory with affec icn. At this very indant, the evening bell >ealed from the neighboring church, 'anmet started at the sound, and as ha elt that this was the last time he should ver hear its dismal sound, he folded his >elo*ed still closer to his heart, and bent >ver her sinking forui with eyes stream ng with affection. The turnkey entered it this moment: ashamed of his weakness le dashed the rising tear from his eye, md a frown again lowered on his coun cnance. lhe man meanwhile ap jroachcd to tear the young lady from hia .mbrace-*. Oversowed by his feelings, ie could make no resistance; but as he ;loomiiy released her from his hold, he ;avo her a little miniature of himself and villi a parting token of attachment, he uiprinted the last kisses of a dying man ipon her lips. On paining the door she urned ar> und is if to gaze once more ipon the object of hi r wid owed love, lie :aubht hi r eye as she retired?it was but or a moment; the dungeon door swung jack upon its hinges, and as it closed af er her, informed him too surely that hey hud met for the last time on earth. Nervousness of tde Dog.?The ner rousess in this creature is largely de r-cioped, and exerting an influence over ill its aciions, gives character to tho jeast. I he brain of the dog is seldom n repose; for even when asleep, the iwitching of the legs and the suppressed w.undi which it emits inform us that it s dreaming. No animal is more actuated >y the power of imagination. Who is there that h;is not seen the dog mistake Ejects during the du^k of the evening. Dwlii ium usually precedes its death, and tijivous excitability is the common ac companiment of mo?t of its disorders. To diseases of a cerebral or spinal char acter it is more l:abie than any other do mesticated animal Its very bark is sym bolical of iis lemtierameut, and its uioda of attack energetically declares the ex citability of its nature. The most fearful of all the diseases to which it is exposed (rabid) is essentially of a nervous char acter, and there are tew of its disorders which do not terminate with symptoms indicative of cranial disturbance. This tendency to cerebral affections will, if properly considered, suggest those casual &nd appropriate acts which the dog in a.llietion m iy require, and which it would be impossible for any author fully to de scribe. Gentleness should at all times b^ practiced ; but to be truly gentle, the reader must understand it is imperative to be linn.
