On my last voyage to Bristol, the owners of the ship took passage with me. The whole cargo belonged to them, and they not only wished to do some business in England, but they also had a desire to travel some. ' Be side* the three owners, I bad four passengers in the cabin. The passage from New York to England on that occasion wui the most se vere and stormy I ever made. I have expe rienced heavier.storms, but never such con tinued hard weather The old ship was on a strain the whole of the time, and though I run into the Avon without losing a life or an important spar, yet she bad received much liimago.^ ller main mast was sprung, her tim bcrs strained, and for the last week the pumps had to be kept going all the time, owners, pas teomra, officers and all doing their share of work at the brakes. As soon as we could get the cargo out, the ship was hauled into the dock for repairs, and we found, upon examination, that it would be a week before the could be fit for sea, and if she had all the repairs which she absolutely needed, it would take her nearer two weeks A contract was made for the job, and one of the owners agreed to stay by and superintend the work. This left me at liberty, nnd I began to look around for some place to visit. I had heard much of Salisbury Plain. The famous tone hege was there, and so were there other relics of Roman and British antiquities Ac cord.ngly to Salisbury Plain I resolved to go When I went on board the ship to make ar rangements with the owner who had remained there, I found one of the passengers just leav ing. His name was Nathan Laeman. He was a young man, not more than thirty years of age, and 1 tupposed him from his foaturcs and idiom, to be an Englishman. I told him I wae goin; to Salisbury, and he informed me he was going the same way Leeman had been intending to take tho stage to Devizes, and thence take some o? the cross coaches ; bat ^ had resolved to take a horso and travel where,and how.and when I pleaded, and he liked the plan so woll that he went im mediately and boughi Lim a good horse and saddle. It was about the middle of the forencon when we sat out. and I found that L-eman in tcnuei to visit tie curiosities with me, and .hen keep cn towards London, by the way of I Anlover and Chertsey, he having sent his baggage on ahead to Salisbury by the great mail routo, which ran many miles of tho way. I lound my companion excellent company, and on the way he told me some passages from his own life. He was born in England, but this was the first time he had been in the Kingdom since ho was fourteen years of aire, i an 1 I was led to infer that at that timo ne ran away from his parents. During tho last six years of his residence in the United States , h.ad bec& engaged in western land spec ulations, and he was now independently rich. We took dinner at Bradford, a largo manu facturing town, six miles southeast of Bath and as soon as our horses were rested, wc set out again. Towards the middle of the after noon the sky began to gruw overcast, and we had promise of a storm. By 5 o'clock the groat black clouds wore piled up in heavy mastcs, and it began to thunder. At War minster wo took the direct road for Albany, a distance of fourteen miles, and when this storm had clcoed upon us we were about half way between tho two places. I was in no particular hurry, and as 1 had no desire to get wet, I proposed that we should stop at tho hrst place we came to In a few moments more we came to a point where a small cross road turned off to the right and where a jjuidc board said it was five miles to Debtford I proposed that we should turn into this by way and inako for Debtford inn as fast as possible, and my companion readily assented We had gone a mile when tho great drops of rain began to fall ; but as good tortunc would have it, we spied a small cottage, not more more than a furlong ahead, through a clump : cf poplars. We made for this place, and 1 reached it before we got wet. There was a ; good-sixea burn on the premises, and a long ! &heep ehed connected it with the house. Bo- ' neath this shed we drove, and just as we ' alighted, an old man carno out We told hiui ! that we had got caught in a storm, and asked i him it he could accommodate us over night, i He told us that we should have the best his ! humble place could afford, and that if we would put up with that, we should be wel como. As soon as tho horses were taken care of wo followed the old man into the house. Ho was a grey-headed man, certainly on the down-hill side of three score, and his form was bent by hard work. His countenance was naturally kind and benevolent, but there were other marks upon his brow than those of old age. Tho moment I saw him, I knew he had seen much of suffering. It was a neat room to which wo were led, a living room, but yet free from dirt and litter. An old woman was just building a fire for the supper, and as we entered she arose from her work. " Some travelers, wife, caught in tho show er," said the old man. " Surely, gentlemen, you're welcome," the woman said, in a tone so mild and free that I know she spoko only the feelings of her soul. "It's a poor fare wo can give, but the heart of the givor must e'en make up for that." I thanked the good people, and told them i that I would pay them well for all they did i for us. " Speak not of pay,;' said the old woman, taking the toa kettle from the hob, and hang ing it on the crane " Stop, wife," uttered the old man tremu lously. "Let not your heart run away with ye. If the good gentlemen have to spare out o their abundance, it becomes not such suffer ers as we to refuse the bounty. I saw the woman place the apron to her eyes, but she made no reply The door close by tho fire place, stood partly open, and I saw in the room beyond, a bed, and I was sure there was some one in it. I asked the old man if he had siokness. ''Yes,' he said, with a shake of the head " My poor boy has been sick a long while He s the only child I have?the only helper on the little farm?and he's been sick now all the epring and summer I've taken care of the sneep, but I couldn't plant. It's hard, but wc don't despair. My good wife?God bless her?shares the trial with me, and I think she takes the biggest share." "No, no, John, don t say s#," uttered tho wife, 44 no woman can do the work that you do." 441 don't mean to tell too much, Margaret, only you know how you've kept me up. A call from the sick room took the wife away, and the old man then began to tell me in answer to my questions, some of the pecu liarities of the great Plain, for we were on it new ; and I found him well informed and in telligent. At length the table was set out. the cleau white cloth spread, and we were in vited to sit up. We had excellent white bread, sweet butter, some fine stewed damsons and a capital cup of tea. There were no ex cuses, no apologies?only the food was before us and we were urged to help ourselves. W hilo wo were eating, the rain ceased falling, but the weather was by no means olear, though just as we moved from the table a gleam of golden light shot through the window trom Che setting sun. It may have been an hour after this?it was not more than that?when a wagon drove up to the door, iu which were two men. The old man had just come in from the barn, and it was not so dark but we could see the faces of the men in the wagon. They were middle u^eU men, one of them haliteu in a sort of jockey hunting garb, and the other dresoti in black clothe? with that peculiar style ot hat and cravat which mark* the officer. I turned towards our host for the purnoee of asking if he knew the new comers, and I saw he was very pale and trembling A low, deep groan escaped him, and he arose from his oh air. lie in the jockey <vat cauie first, and his eje<? rested upon Leetnan and myself "Only I'ime travelers, Mr. Vaughau," said our host. So Mr. Vaughan turned his gate elsewhere about the room, and at length it was upon the old man. " Well," said he, ,l what about the rent ?" 4-We havn t a penny of it yet, sir," aa swercd the host, trembling. " Not a penny ! Then how'll you pay me twenty pounds ?" " Twenty pounds murmured the old mani painfull*. 4,Alas! I cannot pay it. You know Walter has long been sick, and every penny 1 could earn has been paid the doctor. You know he was to havo earned the rent if ho had been well." ?? I don't know anything about it," return ed the landlord doggedly?for Mr. Vaugban owned the little farm, it afterwards appeared " Alt 1 know is, that yoa have had the house and land, and that for two whole years you havn't paid me a peony. Yum know I told you a month ago tnat you should have just one more month to pay me. That month was up last night Can you pay me?" 44 No! uo ! ? O, God knows I can't." 44 Then you must leave the house." 44 When ?" 44 To night!" [COHCLCaOft TO'MORROW. J A Washisgtosiak, now in London, sends us three copies of the London Evening Star, and writes us as follows, under data of April 20th: 44 London is all in a bustle just now, making preparations for a grand celebration, on the 2'Jth inst., and, like ' killing two birds with (.no stone,' the celebration will be for price, and at the same time for honoring the Queen's tLirty-soventh birthday. Preparations are also making for a grand display of fireworks at night; 1 have ascertained from good au thority that these alone will coet ?50,000 ; so you can judge from this how things are done up in London. "A row is anticipated next Sunday on ac count of the Lord Mayor stopping the music in tho parks on Sundays, and I have no doubt tho mob will give his Honor a ' rapping.' They did not miss the music last Sunday, as it was a very disagreeable day ; but If next Sunday is a fine one I think there will be quite an excitement. 4 1 visited Hyde Park last Sunday week and never witnessed such a crowd. It is esti mated that half a million persons, mostly of the working classes, visit the parks on .Sun days, and 1 have no doubt the sudden stop ping of the music will oause a great excite ment for a time. 441 was at the last grand reception of the Queen?dressed in quite a laughable dress to my own countrymen?and enjoyed myself very well, considering 1 ww mostly among strangers. The Queen looked very fine, but not pretty. '4I saw Mr. Dallas yesterday, and he ap peared the same as usual, looking very well and always pleasing. R. T.C'' The Democratic Nominee por the Vice Presidemct ?A Cincinnati paper, describing the personal appearance of some ot the prom incnt delegates to the Democratic Convention, thus speaks of the nominee for the Vice Pres idency : '? Near the eastern aisle, and within a few scats of the front?on the western side of the able?sits John C. Breckinridge, the imper sonation of Democratic Kentucky ehivalry, who won a high position in the last Congress, and declined to be a candidate for re-election, lie is a tall and gracefully formed young man, with delicate features, and would be singu larly handsome if his profile line was more prominent. Looking at him sideways, hi* forehead, nose, ana chin, are nearly in a straight liae. But his eye beams with intelli gence, his nose is handsome in outline, and tbe habitual compression of his lips indicates resolute will. On the whole there is a poetic glimmer about him And that there is some thing of this in his character, the fact that be has purchased an island in Lake Superior for a summer home would indicate. His manner in speaking is proud, defiant, and full of pas sion. tempered by educated discretion." In her description of the United States Madame Pfeiffer says: 44 There are such extraordinary numbers of poetessess, authoresses, female composers, and k> forth, that, if 1 were to mention the names of all who have been introduced tomsai such 1 should fill whole pages with them. Doubt less there are among these many highly giitod; but whoever has written only a few verses, or a little essay, or composed^ a waits or a polka, immediately assumes thevhigh sounding title of a poetess, composer. Ac., thinking,1 sup pose, to make up for the insignificance of the work by the grandeur of the name?and tba names certainly do go very far in the United Statas." Railwat to Jerusalem.?At the recent an nual meeting of the British Society, the Chair man, Sir Culling E. Eardley, mentioned the fact that a railroad is about to be established from the Mediterranean to Jerusalem, with a sanction of the Turkish and British Govern ments. and that it is likely that the material of the line from Balaklava to Sebastopol will b j transferred for the purpoee. Thus, mate rially as well as politically, the war ban tend ed to open wp the East to Western enterprise. >Encolragiro to Widows.?A bachelor friend of ours, who lives on Washington av enue, made a speech once and said?"In short, ladies and gentlemen, I wish I had a window in my bosom, that you might s*e the happy emotions of my heart."
