FREDDY DIDHT ELOPE Freddy was in love. My gracious! wasn't he in love? And what was wo;8:, he didn't tell his love, but let con cealment, like a worm in the bud. prey on his damask check?and faith ! Fred dy's cheek was damask encugh at that time. He was a rosy-cheeked little fel low, was Freddy, some seventeen or eigh teen years of age : a clerk in a railroad office at the magnificent sum of S400 per annum ; and it was the size of this sal ary that caused Freddy's concealment of his love; for although he wasn't very well skilled in the knowledge of this wicked world yet he Lad learned enough in his eighteen months 44 business life " to know ihat if he should fly to the father of the object of his affection, and, falling at his feet, should tell him that he loved his daughter devotedly, distractc lly, and wished to share his fortune with her, t come weal, coma wee, that that hard hearted monster in human shape would I coolly enquire wha* was the fortune t! a he wished earnestly to share?and when I the truth came forth that all his 44 visi-1 ble nuans cf support " were the above* I named enormous sum, it would be 44 all I up"' with Freddy. I An l so Freddy was miserable?miser-1 able in the cilice where he distractedly I made so many errors that he called down I upon him the wrath of his superiors;! miserable in his room at night, to which] he never retired without feeling convinced I that he should pa>o a sleepless night, and I where his head never touched his piilow I without his filling instant \neously asleep, I and never waking up till morning. 1 lie lir.st saw the oij-ct of his atlection I at a dancing-school, wecre he fell in love I with her before he ever knew her ; and I wl.en he was introduced, and dmccl I with her but once, he dated his existence I from that dance; all before it was a I blank. j ?She was a 44 bread and butter Miss," I fresh from boarding school, where, novels I being strictly forbidden, the girls read I nothing else; and so she had become I deeply impressed with the importance of I having a lover, and Freddy presenting I himself in that guise, was at once ac-1 cepled. I don't mean that he at once I 44poj p?d," but he saw her home froml | dancing-school, and singing-school, and I i called very frequently. j J Bat, though having a lover was very! i pleasant and romantic, and all that, yet, I |being engaged was much mure so, anal | she wished that Freddy would propose I | long before he did so ; for Freddy, being I (of cou^e unaware of this state of feeling, I I was afraia to ask the sjmple but import I I ant (question, and so she sang the song I |44 Why don't the men propose ?" at him I [to no parpen. Three times he camel j prepared and nerved?three times he left I j his cap and courage in the hall?but the-1 i fourth time, frenzied by the attentions of I -a rival talier than himself, by at leas'. I an inch, and w.th symptoms of a mous-1 : tache, he fell on his knees in the hail. I when on theve of departing, and wasl blest. I Fieddy went home and passed, fori [once, a sleepless night; but when thel gray light ol morning showed itself at I the window, he fell asleep; and when! the bright sun shone in, it shone upon a I happy dreaming boy, dreaming of a| pleasant cottage covered over with hon*j cy^uckle, where he and Helen lived haj.-l pily?where neither care nor sorrow I entered in, but where a 1 was pea:e and I love. ; Freddy was lato that morning at the! office, f r he had t<"? oidcr his engage-1 ment-iing; and when he fitted it on that evening, it seemed as u the cup o! his happiness was brimming over. But e very day has its night, and Fred dy's n ?;ht was a tlarL oae. lie must be married somehow?he could'nt get m^r rieel without her father's knowing it? and neither he nor she dared to tell him?and Freddy's night was very dark. But at Iwngth a gleam of light s hot across the darkness. Au elopement? that w&a the very thing. When he pro posed it that night it was received with rapturous bursts of applause. Helen had read of how the Count Leonard del Tabonni had borne the ltdy Ang lica del Parodi d?.?wn c rupe lae.der seventy feet in height, and aft'r cutting his way throu-h seventeen of her father's retain ers, armed to the teeth, had rowed her sixteen miles in less than an hour to the chapel Del tan Piei.ro, and there married her in triumph; and although she scarcely expected Freddy to do such prodigies ol' valor, and had some doubt as to his ability to perform thaliLe aqua tic feats, yet they might be closely pur sued, and it might get into the newspa pers headed 44Romantic Elopement;" and, in short, 44 take it for all in all," it was just the thing ; and co it was settled that they should elope on the next Thurs day night at 10 p. m All Freddy wanted was a friend to ex plain his absence from the oliice?anl why he selected Mr Jackson for that friend he never could explain?unless Providence sent him there. Perhaps it was because he was quieter than the other clerks. Perhaps it was because he had been kind to Freddy, and had taken him to his room, and had taught him something of tha noble art of self-defence, perhaps; but at any rate Freddy did go to him, although Mr. Jackson laughed at love and all that sort of thing." After exacting a solemn pledge of se crcsy from him, he told him his plans. To his surprise, instead of laughiog at him, Mr. Jackson became grave. 4,IIow are you going to support your wife after you get her ?" said he. Fi eddy said that her father was rich, and would soon be reconciled when he found that hs could not prevent it. 4> Uut you don'* know that he will/* said Mr Jackson. 44 buppose he don't!*1 and Freddy, who had never ocnt'.mplated steadily such an alternative, was fain to confess that in that case he didn't know THE WEEKLY STAB. ?

" Now look at it in another light," said Mr. Jackson ; -*you say her father, being a widower, does not pay much at tention to his daughter's friendships, and so is not aware of bis daughter's attachment, and that he has invited yoa to his hou>e because you are a stranger here, and he knew your father. Now wou d it befit a gentleman to take ad vantage of his kindness, to induce his daughter to do that secretly which she does not dare to d> on^nlr. for fear of his displeasure ? Wou.d that be honor able conduct befitting a gentleman?" And Fready, nonplussed a second time, but for having been called a gentleman* would have cried. Then Mr. Jackson told him tliat hit better course would be to go to her lather, and having told him of his love, his plan, his revoking that plan because it seemed dishonorable, beg him not to judge him harshly. All of which Freddy would like to do, but dared not. Therefore Mr. Jackson told h:m to go home ar.d sleep over it; and hiving dismissed him had a quiet iaugh to himself for fifteen minutes about the lolly of premature attachments, and then took a boxing lesson by way ot re storing him to gtavity. Freddy spent another sleepless night, but the next moruing he told Mr. Jack son that he had determined to follow his a Iviccd, and received his congratulations thereon, " for plain dealing is the best way to get along, you may depend, Fred dg, my boy." Oh ! how F.eddy's knees knockcd to gether that morning when he asked for Helens father; and when closeted with him his heart descended incontinently into his boots; but he commenced hin story, although something seemei to rise in his throat to try and prevent it; and, having once started, he presented a vivid example of " accclerated motion," for he went like lightning over his love, hit fears, his plan, his revocation of that plan, and ended with a burst of tears, thereby reducing the old gentleman to a state of pjtrifiction. When he came a little to himself, he made Freddy repeat his story more plainly. lie was a man who, since his wife s death, nad paid more attention to his business affairs than his household ones ; but he was of a generous mind, and Freddy's candor touched him, and he called Iitlen up. After a long talk, a compromise was determined upon. He agreed not to break off the match at once, (and break two loving hearts, as Helen pathetically said.) upon Freddy's consenting to lay aside all idea of moon light flitting without due consent. When he had dismissed the lovers, Helen's ia'her coaldn t help being afflicted some what after the manner of Mr. Jackson's ittack; but Le instituted a vigorous s arch into the source whence Helen drew her intellectual nourishment, and hovmg made a grand auto-dc-fe of all the noveln in the house, he put her upon a more solid course of diet. He did more ; he kept a watchful eye over F:eddy, and in a year offered him a vacant clerkship in his counting-room. Freddy accepted, and having a double motive for exertion he entered into two copartnerships?one wi h Helen's father, one with herself. Mr. Jickson officiated as groomsman to the latter firm, ani Helen's father and nimself had a quiet laugh that evening over the manner in tekitk FrtdJy didn't dove. A Xy^Xhere has just died in the village of Ktiudo: fF, in France, in his 75;ft vear, a veteran of tho French army, AI. tVter Kltsa, who, at the battle ci Austerlita, on the 2 1 of December, 1805, was struck by a I us^ian musket ball, which lodged in his lefc temple, just above the ear, and remained there to the day of nia death, a period of nearly fifty years, without having caused him any pain, or at all affected his intellectual faculties. After the death of Mr. Klein, his family, to whom he had bequeathed this ball, to be pr*served as a souvenir of his cam paigns, had it extracted by Dr. Backe, a surgeon ol B nn, who performed the op eration by trepanning, so that the ball remains surrounded by a ring formed by part of the skull. The ball on the side which touched the brain is covered With a Lard skin similar to that on the out side of the head. The brain Lad not been at all injured, uor was there any ap pearance of any fracture in the skull near the spot where the ball had lodged. The medical men express their astonish ment that a foreign substance could have remained so near the brain without the intellect of the person being somewhat affected.
