H SEM KEN, No. ISO Pa. avenue, bctw, 9th and iitk tti. max 90 EVENING STAR. SPARKS FROM A DOMESTIC FIRESIDE No, Mr. Timmings! I shan't do it to please you or anybody else. I know very well who has been putting you up to such notions, but it won't do. I'm not going to spoil Araminta Ann's hands to please your meddlesome, old fashioned sister! Let me tell you that! Learn her how to cook and wash, indeed. I m surprised at you, Mr Timmings. that you have no moie pride than to want our daughters to work. I don't intend they shall know anything about it, and then their hus bands when they marry can't expect it of them. My girls weren't intended lor drudges to tny man, and they shan't be either. I'd like to know if Mrs Fitz Snobbs would ever call again, if she should come in and see Araminta Ann, or Amanda Malvina, with a broom in their hands ? No, indeed Mr. Timmings, you may as well hush: for I shan t spoil my girls' prospects to please any one. Cook and wash, indeed ! Learn them to keep house ? No, sir ! All I'm going to hare my girls learn, is to be graceful and elegant; and I'd like to know il they could be either, coming in from the kitchen, all red and mustled up, their hands all burned and blackened, and their long linger nails all broken ! No, Mr. Timmings, my girls were born to be ladies, and ladies they shall be not kitchen maids ! You n. edn't tell roe I know how to work ! What if I do? If 1 hadn't known how, you never would have expeeted it of mc, and I'm deter mined my girls shan't know anything about it. Il they can play the piano and harp, talk a little French sing a little Italian, and dance, and wa'k gracefully, that is all I think necessary for them to know. Mr. T., il sail useless?you can not alter my mind a bit, and I'm going to have my own way about it. And cow, while I m talking of it, just give me ten dollars to pay the seamstress bill. Why don't the girls sew *?just because J won't let them prick their lingers to pieces?that's why! Mr Timn_ings you're the most unreasonable ma . I evei heard of! D ? you think Augustus Van Sympieum would think any more of oui Aiaminta Ann because she could make a pudding, or a shirt ? No, indeed. Mr. T ; he wouldn't marry any girl who had so low an opinion of herself as to work ! He wants his wile Mr. 1 itnmings, to giacc his parlor, and he will have a house keeper to grace his kitchen. Never mind about their gettuig poor men. Mr. T.;m\ daughters are better raised, and have more sense than to indulge in any ro nmnce, unless that romance has solid gil ding. Mo, Mr. Timmings. they will have no fancy for love in a cotiage, unless it shouid be a cottage orne. So you neein'i fiet yourself?they will know how to care lor no one.- w Now, Mr. Timmings, you talk to me again about my extravagance, if you think best, after pa>ing ten dollars for that little trilling box of cigars, and thirty-five dollars for live gallons of brandy, ^iow, Mr. Timmings, that's what i call extravagance?sJtiah extra vagance, too not one Hit of cse to any one but yourself; and when I get a new thing, it is lor the benefit of the whole family Mr. Timmings, men are the most selfish creatures in existence, and you are the most selfish of men?that you are! Ten cents a pieco for cigars, eh ? Well, well! what is the world eom ing to? 1 can't get fifty dollars from you to buy that old China set that would make our table look 60 aristocratic ? look like we had had it in the family for gen et ations Real Havana, are "thev ? i hope you think so, Mr. T.; but i'thiaU if you will walk out some of our back streets, you will see just as real Havanas in the course of manufaciuie. You are a little solter-headed than 1 gave you credit for, Mr. Timmings, if you were made to "believe that those cigars ever saw Cuba. Now, Mr. Timmings, only last week 1 asked you for a hundred dollars to buy the girls each a brocade silk, and to send Iraminta Ann, Manda Malvina. and Os car Thaddeus to dancing school?some thing reasonable to spend money for ? and what was your answer, Mr. Tim mings ? What was your auswer, I say ? Why, thai you couldn't support such useless extravagance, and that I had better put them to the wash-tub and plow ; yet you can spend forty five"dol lars in brandy and cigars ! Now, Mr. 'J immings, 1 will have those dresses, and they ?kail go to dancing school! to, make up your mind to pay the bills when they come in. You wont, eh? Well, just let me see you get out of it if you can?that's all! Aiiit 1 your lawful, married wife? and can't they make you pay my bills ? No, Mr. Timmings, I'm not to be trilled with any lorger; and if jou can alford to spend money on brandy and cigars, you shall on your ovru dear children?that's fiat! I m going this very day to get that old China, and I took a chance to-day in the lottery lor some old silver plate ; and if I win it, i m going to have your father's initials put on it, and tell everybody he left it to me when he died. You see, Mr. Timmings, what it is to have a managmg wife. I'm sure I'll win that old silver, and with t^at and the China our table will make any one think we are from souk old family. But, Mr. Timmings, you must give up your expensive habits or your means will not support the necessary ex penses of ourstyle of living. You really can't afford it, and you must curtail for ty-five dollars for brandy and cigars. It wont do, Mr^ Timmings ? It must do! Why, it would have nearly paid for that China. I declat e I am quite faint, think ing of it! [E7* A yo Jng lady being aj-ked whether she wouid wear a wig when her hair! turned gray, replied, with great ear nut ness, " Oh, no! I'll dyo first!"

An* Indian' Hanoi in St Paul Mi* MS ta.?Our city had the honor yerter* day of a Tisitfrom several hundred Win nebagoes. with iheir squaws; and d urine tho day they paraded the Btreeta in ail the gaudy fioery which is a sure token that they have recently been in the re ceipt of government annuities. Most of the chie'.s and braves, with Little Hill at their head, were in the party, and during the afternoon a grand aance took pla e in front of the capital. Quite a number of ladies graced the official realms of the Governor and Secretary with tbeir pres ence, in order to obtain a view o( the pro ceedings: the capitol steps were crowded, and the lawn in front was thickly covered with Indians, some of whom were in their gayest dress, and others, not a few of them, as nearly naked as they could be. The dancers, about a few in number, oc cupied the centre space of the lnwn: around them a ring of braves were seat ed, and behind them a circle of squaws, papooses, &c Two Indian and one American flags, were stuck in line, at proper distances, in front of the capitol, and before them sat the band which ihumped drums and blew whistles with unceasing energy. The dance was pro tracted for nearly or quite two hours, and formed a wild and exciting seer e which can hardly be described. It must have been a pleasant one to those who engaged in it, for at the termination of each dance they returned to their places laughing with right good will Little ? ill had a talk with the Governor, and aftei receiving an order for bullocks bo intimated that it was his intention to de Dart for his new home immediately. Such sights as this used to be familiar to the old citizens of St. Paul. They are growing les* and less frcq leot, and th s, the latrst ad q?ogt brilliant of them ail, may i.otiuapily be regaided as the <ast flicker of the candle. The Indian has passed away, and to us is no more.? St. Paul Pionter, May 24. (?7* The canal outrages in Indiana have oreattd an intense and wide spread excitement in that Mate, as the canal against which the conspirators hare be?n waging war is a most important work to many flourishing towns, and to a popu lous agricult ural district. 1 he impunity ffith which the ou razes are committed seems amazing. Since the Governor is sued his proclamation, off ring rewards for the apprehension of the conspirators, rhey have stuck up a notice offering a reward for his hi-ad When they burnt ihe aqucducts over Birch * reek. ? party ?>f thetn stood guard during tne progress of the fire, to see that it was not stopp'd. Besides warning away and scaring away the labore s employed in repairing the reservoir, they burned all the building# occupied by them, w th their tools, wheelbarrows, &c., and eleven other buildings in addition: thus removing eve*y house likely to be used for the pur pose of sheltering the men. They hire also destroyed the two locks at the junc tion, and posted written noiices on tho doors of persons ia the vicinity who dis approved of their acts, warning them, that if they gave any information of the perpetrators, or had anything to say on the subject they would at oncc be taken out and lynched They hrd made an example of a miller who expressed disap proval, by scourging him severely, and told him that if he interfered any further his mill would be burnt to the ground. Meantime navigation on the canal is in terrupted. and a number of coal Ivafa left high and dry. A public inee'inghtis been held at Evansville, kt which much indignation was expressed agaiust the conspirators Another Alleged Bui isii Military * gent in Custody.?The United utes Marshal's deputies arrested six more 44 farmers" cn Saturday morning who arrived in an early train from New York, where they were recruited by Bntihb agents ior the I rimean army.

TheGiai.d Haven (Michigan) limes, of the 30th of May, gives an account of a most notorious scoundrel living in that vicinity, by the name of Jonathan Tur pin lie is a negro, who has seluced no less than three men's wives. Il;s first white victim was the wife of W. Clifford, by whom he had a boy who lived to the are of ten months.

This illicit intercourse so em boldened the black ra?*cal, that he final ly resolved to take the life of Haskins, that he might have uninterrupted inter course with his wife.
