WHEATON'S ELEMENTS OF INTLRNA uonal Law, new editian Adams' Equity, new edition, with American note j* - FRANCK TAYLOR. I E VENING ST AH. A TALE OF ODIVTKLLOWSHIP ; or, woman's c Riosrr. A lodge of I. O. O. P.. at Woodstown, determined to have their lodge-toon* (.one Hp clean and nice; it was resolved uuammously that Mrs. K should be employed to do this job. After the meeting adjourned, the guar ..Ti10 k"new the inquisitive charac ter 01 Mrs. K?procured a billy-goat, and placed him in a closet that was kept ns a reservoir for the secre'. things. IJe ' hen informed the lady of the wishes1 , r the lodge, pnd request*! her to comr early the next morniBg, as lie would then he at leisure to show her what was and what was not to be done. Morning came, and with it Madame T ? with her biO in, brushes, pivils, tubs, 4-3., prepared and armed for the job, and found the guardian waiting for her. "Now, Madame," said he, "I will tell you what we want doue, and how we came to employ yon. The brothers said ? was d.lrieul to get anybody to do the j )b and not be me idling with the secrets in that little closet; we have lost tht Key, anu cannot find it to lock the door - assured them that you could be depend ed on." r '?Depended cn !" said she, "I guess 1 can. My poor dead and gone hu band who belonguu to the Free Masons or the! Auti-MaiiOQs, 1 don't know which, used to ten me a i the seciets of the concern, and when he showed me the marks thi gridiron made when he was initiate*. and told me how they fixed poor Morgan, 1 never told a living soul to this da.; if nobody troubles your closet to find out your secrets till i do, they'll lav there tdl they rot?they will." a tnought so, said the guardian ',41jd n?w i want 30U to commence in taat corner, and give the whele room a detent cleaning, and I have pledged m\ word and honor for your fidelity to your promise, now don t go i:n0 that closet !*' and .then left the lady to herself. No sooner had she heard the sound 0 his feet on tte iast step of the stairs than she exclaimed: -Don't go in that closet! \V hy, what on earth can there ba in that closet. I 11 warrant there is a pig, grid iron, or some nonsense, just like the Aoli Masons, for all the world, 1 11 be buund. I will just take one peep, ann nobody will be any the wiser, as I can l keep it to myself.'7 Suiting the action to the word, she ; stepped lightly to the forbidden closet. , turmd the button, which was no soener done than b-a-li! went the billy eoat ' witn a spring to regain his liberty, which came nigh upsetting her lad- shin. Both started for the d.-or, but it was fi'led with implements of house-cleanin", a!i were swept clear from their position dow n to the bottom of the stairs. ihe noise a; d confusion occasioned by such unceremonious commgdown stairs [drew hail the town to witness Mrs. j K~?'s eilort tj yet from under the goat a 1 d pile oi pans, tubs, brooms and . oru.ihes in the street. ; Who should be fir-t oa the spot bat jii.c rascally Joor-keeper, who, altar re I S?at, which v/a_s a cripple for j in.:, and npiif'Jng the oiL-.r that j bound the ?:<od woma;i .0 tho eari.h ; anxiously inquired if she had been taking the degrees ?

Tlie secre: was there -I wanted to know it?1 opened the door and out popped ihe crit ter right into my face. I thought the devil had mc, and I broke tor the stairs with the devil butting me at every jump; 1 leii over the tub, and got dowu stairs as you found us?all in a heap." " But, madam," sa;d the door-keeper, " you arc in posistssiou of the grea* se cret of the order and must go up and be initia ed, sworn, ai.d ride the goat in the regular way." 4; Regular way !" exclaimed the lady, anu do you suppose I am going near the tainal place again, and ride that critter without a bridle or ladies saddle ? No, never! I don't want nothing to do with the man that rides it. I'd look nice perched on a billy-goat, would nt 1 ? No, no, never! i 11 never go nigh it again, or your hall outlier?it 1 can ever prevent it no lady shall ever join thfeOud teiiows. Why, I'd sooner be a Free Mason, and be broiled on a gridiron as long as fire could be kept under it, and pulled from garret to cellar, with a hal ter, in a pair of old breeches and slip pers, just as my poor, dear husband was! And he lived over it, too, but I never could live over such another ride as I took to day." ^ The Folly op Boyish Amcskmbjtts. The other day we saw three or lour boys throwing rocks at a nest of martins close by our office, and one of the stones in its descent came very near the head cf a lady, who was walking a very little dis tance from where the boys were at work. We ordered them to desist and leave the spot, but the mutterings of the little chubs gave evidence that"no little morti lcation of feeling was the result. We had scarcely opened the papers of morning, when we noticed in an Eastern exchange, that a lady, walking thoi streets near where these bird-killere had,' congregated, was disfigured for life, by' one of these descending missiles hitting j her in the region of the eye.

The^e importunities sho resisted, as emanating fioin a young and inexperienced youth His parents event ually hi aid of the relation existing be tween their son and th'S young worran, and accordingly sought an interview wrli her, which resulted in the girl promising never to see him again. Several weeks elapsed without their a^ain meeting or seeing ach other; bul at length the youn< man grew impatient, and commenced adlrvssiDg TV'tcs to the >T,,ung lady, requesting her to form as signations with him Ac. These notes, it appears, she did not notice. At length He became quite unmanageable, and :iade various threats of self-destruction, .fcc , if she would not consent to see him tor a few momears, perhaps for the last ime. She at length consented, and the intimacy was renewed, and grew as strong as ever on the part of the young ;nan, who having plenty of ready cash, was a bird worth ptucking. In a shoii, time he became again a constant visitor it the house, and rgain renewed his im portunitiasto her to become hi- wife, but this she stoutly refused. His parents having heard that the parties were again intimate, the father at once proceeded to E g ith \\ ard station, and requested Cap iain Turn hull to arrest the girl for es tranging the affections of, and leading his on from the paths of virtue. This request the captain refused to oomply with, on the ground tha there was no charge again?t the young ladv, that would warrant him in so doing with out a warrant; but said he would tsk her to accompany him 10 the mayor a >ftico. which the father nqui ,ted him to do.

The doctrine ol this s ?: is, that matrimony, as at present uaaer stood, is a ludicrous sham ; that a man lias no right to live with h;s wife unless he loves her spiritually as well us phys ically ; that a woman is not bound to live with her husband unless she lores him spiritually as well as physically ; and that when she sees another whom she can love 6d/<?r,she is morally obliged to cut the former and take up with the latter, and ko on, according to each new fancy, until she dies. Th* agents of tbia soct are very numerous, and the institu tion itself is filled with proselytes?made up in the main of huhbands who lave abandoned their wives, and of wives who have abandoned their husbands, to gether, as one of its agents informed me, with a bountiful supply of young men and women who have never yet been ' yoked' in the usual lorm.
