Vibaud 10th >u. nu90 EVENING STAR. MRf. PHIPS'8 DOUGHFACE BY AUGUSTA MOORS. Mr. Phips was a good man and a lov ing husband, as everybody, even to the servants and sewing-girls who were em ployed about his house, willingly and admiringly testified. ' My dear," said he to Mrs. Phips.one fine, clear, winter morning, (he always called his wile "my dear," which proves my opening assertion.) "my dear, I am sorry to be absent all night from your sweet company, and from my dear home; but I believe I shall be obliged to go away, on business, this P. M., and am afraid I shall not be able to return till to-morrow afternoon." | "Where are you going, my dear ?" asked Mrs. P., with a sweet smile. "To Providenco, to see about that Lane aflair, of which I told you." "Oh,' said Mrs. Phips, with an air of satisfaction. She evidently had no ob jections to the projected jaunt. Mr. Phips accordingly departed. The weather had been remarkably cold for several days, and pretty little Mrs. Phips was very much troubled by a chapped face. It had been quite sore, and fretted her not a little. She was afraid it diminished her beauty, and ren dered her an object less pleasing to her husband's eyes. As she sat sewing that afternoon, she thought ever what she had better do to cure the unpleasant roughness. "I know what I can do," said she aloud; "I 11 put a dough covering on my face to-night, aad by to-morrow it will be as eoft and smooth as ever." So that evening she made Dolly, the chambermaid, bring up a pint of dough, and, after making all due preparations for bed, she rolled and patted out a sort of mask; and taking care to make a place to breathe through, also a hole for each ej e, she stuck it on to her face, and tying it fast with a napkin, laid herself peace fully dowa to rest. Now it so happened that Mr. Phips met a man upon the road to Providence, who had urgent business with him, and it becamt necessary that he should re turn to Boston. He did so, and gave his entire atten tion to his companion until near eleven o'clock that night, when he turned his stops towards his home. He smiled gently to himself, as he trod the crisp ground of the common over which his path led him; and one could easily guess he was thinking of the pleas ant surprise his wife would feel upon seeing him home so soon. lie entered the house with a night-key, and as it was bright moonlight, he thought it useless to light up the gas to undress by, Eu moved about without it. The rays of the moon fell across the bed, and illumined?what! surely that ghast ly visage was not the laca of his dear ictfe ? As the eyes of the horror-stricken men rested upon the horribly strange thing, lying on the white pillow, where the (to his eyes) beautiful face of his darling Nancy belonged, he uttered an unearthly sound somewhere between a groan and an oath and a death rattle, and staggered back against a chair on which Mrs. Phipps had placed a pitcher of water and a glass. Ihe chair and its contents, with Mr. Phips oa top of the broken glass and china. came to the door. Up jumped the fearful vision, and, in a sepulchral voice demanded, 44 what is it ?" then cried 44 thieves ! rob bers!" and 44 fire !" almost in a breath. The unfortunate husband, half-dis tracted by thele-vildering terror, started for the door. But the bravo goblin had no idea of letting a robber escape so. She rushed after him, and down stairs the two raced?he, with his hair rising and stiffening in all directions over his iiead, and the blood dripping from half a dozen gashes in his body ; she scream ing with might and maia for 44 help !" her muflled tones sounding worse and worse at every word. On and on went the twain, till the large dining-hall was reached. There the terrilied servants meditated whether they had better run to or from the scenes of "action. The gas was blizing there, for Biddy, Dolly and Jim had no notion of being murdered in the dark. Oh ! ve mirthful and grotesque deities of old, how would you have delighted in that scene! At the sight of the bloody garments of their master, and the shocking goblin which followed hard after him, Biddy and Jim uttered a pair of yells that were original beyond all iiuitatiou, and dropped as if shot by hot thunderbolts, in two heaps upon the floor. Dolly, who had carried up that unlucky bit of dough, understood the matter better, and, wit1: a sweep of her powerful arm, she arrest ed her master's flight, and brushed the mask which her mistress wore. Wore ashamed of the figure they had cut before their servants than they would care to own, the two subsided individuals suddenly withdrew into the privacy of their chamber, leaving Dolly, whose agony of mirth broke forth the very mo ment the last flutter of night-linen had disappeared through the door, to 44 shake out" her fellow-servants, and satisfy them the best way she could, that the 44 shapes of terror'' which had blasted their vision, were nothing but mortal shapes of flesh and blood, rather sparely covered with dry goods. Hoping that Mr. and Mrs. Phips enjoyed a good night's rest, and that their little adventure in no wise dis turbed their conjugal felicity, I wish my readers a respectful good afternoon, and relapse into silence. &_/** The phrase 44 fighting on hit own hook," is now more elegantly rendered 44waging war upon the prudent Individ? uality of his personal curve."

Other persons were born about the same time as thyself, and hare been grow ing up ever since, as well as thou. There fore be not proud. 3. Preserve few secrets from thy wife; for if she discover them, she will grieve, not that thou has kept from her thy se crets. but thy confidence. 4. Yet confidence may be misplaoed, as when thou goestout in thin patent leath ern boots, simply because the pavement before thine own door is dry. 5. The girl who is destined to be thy wife, although now unknown to thee, is sure to be living somewhere or other. Hope, therefore, that she is quite well, and otherwise think politely about her. 0. Educate thy children, lest one of these line days they educate thee in a school with no vacations. 7. O, how good was nature, that placed great rivers near great towns! /-* ? ? ? 8.

A cat, even if 6he be friendly, never approaches thee by a direct course.

Tnc Rights of Schoolmasters axd Pi rents.?A case of considerable inter est was tried before Justice Ladd, of Cambridge, on Saturday. A citizen of Newton was complained of for an assault upon the master of a school at that place. It appeared that the master was in the habit, as is uow the general custom, of keeping thechildcf the defendant, with otherscholars, after school hours, to learn her lessons which had been imperfectly recited during school hours. The parent believing that the detention was illegal, went to the school-house and demanded his child. This was after regular school hours. The master said the ehild should go as soon as she had recited her lesson. The parent attempted to enter the school room to take his child, but his entrance was resisted by the master, a.id the as sault upon the master was the result. The Court ruled that the keeping ol a child until the lessons of the day nad been perfected was legal; that the parent in at tempting to enter the school room, in op position to the will of the master, was in the wrong: tnat a child placed at school by the parent is under the control of the master, until regularly dismissed; and that a parent cannot withdraw the child from school during the day against the master's will, except through the inter vention of anoflioer and the school com mittee. The defendant was fined $30 and costs.?Baitwi Traveller. Cheap Dinner in Paris.? A dinner for four cent3 is decidedly not dear. This luxury is enjoyed by the frequenters of Halle mark .t in Paris. The bill of fare is thus composed: 1 cent, soup, (vege tables,) 1 do-, bread, 1 do., plate of red beans, 1 do , cup of sweet coffee. The meal is served in a very simple style. The table con^isU of an enormous block of wood, with boles hollowed out to serve as plates and di&hes, with metal covers chained to the table. The meal over, a stream of water sluioes down the table, and when that is dry the cloth is laid fb* | the nuU part.
