Lindy Ray *u scarce seven leer. Beauti ful as an houri, of course, as all heroines are. But more than this Linda had a mind and a heart of goodness, as well as personal beauty. She was the brightest scholar of Mrs. '? seminary, was the joy of her father, the pride of her mother, the go-between and confidant of a score of little Kays?her noisy young brood of brothers?and the friend and consoler of all the poor and distressed who came within her knowledge. Linda was "engaged'' to young Sloe urn, an embryo lawyer of fashion and of some talent, who nad only the slender income of hii pro fession to depend unon, but which, aided to the modest little fortune of Linda, would enable the young couple to live " quite com fortably." It was now in the fitful iuoDth of April. The following June was to witness the bridal of Linda and her lawyer lover, npon which even the "ba^py pair ' were to start for " the Linda looked magnificently on horseback, and on this April morning, indulging in her favorite exercise, she was sitting like the queen of beauty, glowing with freshness and radiant with joy upon the back of her match less bay?the most Knowing and graceful piece of horse-flesh to be lighted on by a food and indulgent parent. Young Slocum was by her side, and wa< descanting upon the beauty of the morning and the beauty of the " morning queen," when suddenly the latter sped from his sight like the morning's breeze. Linda's " bay" had taken fright, and was flying with its mi." treis through the air, scarce touching the paving stones, at a fearful speed. " She wiil certainly bo thrown and killed!" and Sio cum's heart as be exclaimed thus?or the place where his heart should have been?beat with a feeling akin to despair. When, however, Slocum arrived some three or four miles farther, toward the edge of the city, a scene met his view that called up other emotions than those of pleasure at the safety of his beloved. Linda was seated upon the turf, reclining against the trunk of a tree. A tall, handsome stranger was bending over her, laving her brow with water and pouring the magustifm ot his warm life into her fainting energies. The look?the strange mysterious look? that of soul recognising soul, which passed between them when Linda opened her eyes full upon him. haunted young Slocum like disagreeable nightmare for monthe after. The next dav, the tail, handaomc stranger called upon the lovely girl he had rescued from certain death, to inquire after her health. Some how or other it was full three hours before the " call" was concluded. Time had passed so pleasantly in that ea*y flow of thought and sentiment, where soul met its kindred, that both were surprised at its rapid fl;ght. Again and again they met, always talking as though they had been friends forever; so unconstrained aud easy was the interchange of thought between thein. It generally hap pened, too by some strange chance, that Slo cum was either out on some fishing excursion, or something of the sort, whenever the tall, handsome stranger called upon the bride-elect. The middle of May arrived. The wedding day was drawing more and more near. In a maze of bewilderment the young betrothed awaked as from a sudden dream. "Do I love him well enough to becotnc his wife?" asked 3he of her own heart. Alas! a deeper depth had been sounded in that young heart. A deeper depth than the shallow line of the groom-elect could hope to sound. But the spirit that had taught her?her own heart?that had taught her the meaning of the word i?ove?the tall and handsome slran Ser?he had gone as suddenly as he came, iusincss had called him to a distant country and clime. True, he had never spoken of love, but when he was gone, Linda had found to her dismay that he had taken her heart wiLh him, and that Sipcum soemed to her now nothing more than a sort of automaton, brainless ana hearties j. ? " But I will be truo to honor and my pro mise," said the courageous Linda, resolutely. " I will marry him, and make him a true wife. I will bury my own heart anl its love, and perform my duty faithfully." Alas ! alas ! 44 There is many a slip betwixt the cup and the lip " A rich old uncle of the portionless Slocum sudder.lv arrived from the "golden Last," sought his nephew, mado his will, and Slo cum, the almost penniless, the almost brief less lawyer, awoke in the morning a rich man. His uncle scouted at the idea of his wed ding the fair Linda, with her very moderate fortune, telling him that such a handsome, ac complished, and wealthy fellow as he (Slo cum; could pick a millionaire heiress off from almost every bush. His kind uncle, bid him travel and choose from any uf the arisUwratic and wealthy beauties of Eu rope. Elated with his sudden fortune, puffed up with personal vanity, Slocum followed his uncle's advice, setting sail with a high heart to cioss the ocean for Europe and success. He dropped a careless note to his beloved, telling her of his determination to travel and ?to leave her free. Somehow or other, Slocum's remittances from his uncle did not arrive as he had rea son to expect, ami he had not much soon er crossed the Atlantio than he had to re cr >83 it. What was his dismay upon arriving home, when he found his quondam bride elect had married his rich old uncle ! that the " will" bad been remade, that he (Slocum) was cut off without even a shilling?the will being made in favor of Linda and ber successors. This discovery was maddening, but worse than all, the rich old uncle had thrown away his ugly wig, and the hump on his back, and his wooden leg, and he stood up as Linda's youthful bridegroom? the tall, handsome stranger! He nad once rescued her from death. It was a pleasant ruse?to those who enjoy ed the sport?but it threw poor Slocum into a bilious (ever which nearly terminated his life, which also put me in possession of the above little episode, I being the physioian who car ried him over the bridge of sickness to the terra firma of health.

Tronble in a Methodist Church?A Trustee in Limbo for Duturbiaj Divine Worship. For some time past we learn, a difficulty haa existed among the trustee? and congregation, of the Still well Methodist Chutch. in First street, between First and Second avenues, re garding the supremacy of church affairs. In consequence of this feeling, tbe church is divided, and its officers arc ariajod against each other. A few days ago. it aj-pcar*. the party opposed to the minister, Rev. Mr Thomp son, called upon the Mayor to protect them at the church Mayor Wood referred the ca*e to Captaiu HarU. of the Seventeenth Ward, and directed him to place a policeman at the church. The order was complied with, and yesterday after noon an officer appeared among the eongrega tion to preserve the public peace, if any man should attempt to disturb it During the afteruocn R?v. Mr. Tboap?>n began to re.;d from the pulpit a notice calliug a meeting of the trustees or the church. Mr Brown, one of the opposition trustees, it is said, immediately interrupted the rea liu; by protesting against the legality of tbe oall. The ministerial party, which seems u oe the strongest from having possession of the matters in dispute, were indig: ant at the con duct of Mr Brown, and called npon the police man to arrest him. Thu incident, of course, created some excitement, and divine wor. hip was suspended for a while Brown, followed by hie friends, was taken to the station house, wbere the other p&r.y wished ti make a complaint against him ?

In the evening, however. Captain Hartt, ap- ? prohen.?ive that the two parties would come in collision again, went to the church hin sell in citisen's dress, accompanied by two officers, the latter of whom he stationed in the lobby Soon after the commencement of tbe exer cise', the minister again attempted to read th? notice which had caused the trouble a short, time before. Mr Brown was present, hat could not sit still and listen. Bel^re the pa per bad been fairly opened to the congrega tion, he got up a second time and uttered L.s protest. Mr Hanna, another trui tee on the minister'a side, called the polioe. Capt. iiartt responded. As he insisted upon the arrest of Mr Brown, the captain ordered his men inside of tha :hurch, and the former was conducted to the station house, where he was kejt all night.? .Y/??
