LOVE SCENE Mr. Popps r.aid bis two hundred sixty-sev cnth visit to Miss Clarissa Cooler the other evening lie fcand her in a rocker, alone in the parlor; stole his arm around her alabas ter neck, and pipped the nectar of her cherry lips?a proceeding there was not the least hnrm in, considering that they had come to an agreement, and were generally reported to be on the high road to matrimony The lady took all quietly?even indifferently, to judge from the lassitude of her attitude in the rocker, her laiy use of her fan, and her exclamation of something between a heigh ho and a ya hum. Cum mon pi aces were disposed of. Then fol lowed a silence, broken only by Mr. Popps slapping at the mosquitees, and Miae Clarissa fanning herself unceasingly. At length Poppa proposed a promenade and ice cream Clarissa declined both, adding : "1 wish to stay at home ; for I have some thing particular to tell you " " Indeed," said Popps; " what is it, dear ?" "You expect our wedding to take place in three weeks, don't you?" 44 To be sure I do!" 44 Well, I am sorry to disappoint you, but I must do it. ? cannot marry"? " Good heavens, Clarissa, what are you saying?" 14 Don't interrupt me. I mean I can't marry i just yet awhile?not for some months to come." 44 Why, Clarissa, what's the meaning of all this ? You gave me your positive promise, and said nothing stood in the way. I am all ready and worried with waiting Why do you put it off, dear?" %i That you wil! have to excuse my telling you. I have a good reason for it?I have thought the matter over well?and my mind is made up Will that satisfy you ?" I Popps mused awhile. Clarissa kept her fan going Finally, Popps spoke. 44 No, Clarissa, it wun't satisfy me. You postpone our wedding, and refuse to tell me why. If you have a reason for it you ought I to let me know it, and maybe it would satisfy ina. But I won't be satisfied without the I reason." " Well, then, you'll have to remain utsat I is (led. I tell yuu I have a reason, aud a good I one?what more do you want?" 44 I see how it is ?I've courted you too long I ?I did'nt strike while iron was hot?you are tired of me, and wish to get rid of me Well, if that is vour wish, go ahead." "Mr. Popps, you re a dunce?you're a fool!" 4 Maybe I am. and maybe I ain't," said Popps, risii.g with bis temper, 44 but this I'll say, Miss Clarissa, if you don't tell me why I you postpone the wedding for a few months, I you may postpone it forever, ho far as I am I concerned. Tell me, Clarissa; else 1 swear I that when I leave this house to-night, I will I never set foot in it aguin !" ! 41 Well, then, you'd bettergo'." 44 Very well Good night. Miss Cooler." | Popps rcached the door, Clarissa followed I him; aBd seeing that he was in earnest, cried I to him to stay. Popps came back. Clarissa I put her head on his shoulder and cried. Popps J melted. Popps spoke first 41 Well, dear, what's the matter?" "Oh, I think you're so unreasonable and I cruel! indeed, indeed, I have a good cause I for putting off oar marriage?but I cannot, 1 I must not tell you what it is. Oh, dear Mr I Popps, do excuse me !" Aud she cried a 1 it | tie more. I "Well, Clarissa, tell me this Do you put I it off to please your father or any cf your re I 1 at ions ? ' 1 4 No?they know nothing of my determina tion. ' ! " Do you put it off on account of anything I concerning me ?** I 44 No." 44 Do you want to go any where, or do any I thing particular, that will keep you from mar rying?" I 44 No " 44 In God's name then, Clarissa, what do I you want ? Why keep me in this suspense'" 44 Oh, Mr Popps, you're so cruel! May I be I ought to tell you the obstacle?butl can't, I indeed I cant!" I 41 Just as you please, Miss Cooler." And I Popps again picked up his bat. 44 Oh. Mr. Popps, pray don't go?don't go I yet awhile !" 44 Then, Miss Clarissa, tell me the obsta cle." I Popps was evidently determined. Clarissa I put her head on his shoulder, laboring under I a strange agitation. Several times she es I sayed to speak. At length she breathed into I his.ear these fearful words : 44 The weather's too hot.'" Popps wilted. When our spirit left he was I advocating a trip to the White Mountains. A Second Angel Gabriel ?Yesterday af ternoon, the innabitauts of the city of Pough keepsie were visited bv a second Angel Ga briel, who, after collecting together in Market street some of the most respectable cititens, prepared to give them a lecture upon free dom, end its rights, lie first introduced him self as the inventor of steamboats and barges, and also stated that most of the publio roads were worked by him, but he merely told this for the good of the community at large Whilst in the middle of the oration, a horse and wagon was quietly driven behind him. a rope produced, and one end tied to a leg of the chair upon which he was standing, and the ether fastened to the wagon; the whip was then applied to the hone, and the inven tor of steamboats and bridge*, and worker of the public roads, was suddenly hurled from his high position to the level of the commu nity at large Green Gooseberry Jam.?We believe green gooseberry jam is not very frequently made for family use, but it is one that we cau rec ommend, especially when the gooseberries aro home-grown, a* thai decreases the expense, and it is essential taat they should be used fresh.

A lady correspondent of the N Y Indepen dent^wriung from Fry burg, . gire? tb? following graphic account of tb? great organ in that place, which has long been considered one of tne most famous of the splendid instru> menta on the continent: As usual in a Dew city. we wandered around in the crooked, up and-down-hill streets of Kryturg, and just at erening went to the eaihedral to bear the great organ. The streets were dusky in the twilight u we walked along, and when we entered the church it was so dark that we could cot distinguish the faces of those that were assembled A man with a lantern met us at the door and took our tick ets, and we passed up the sombre isle towards the altar. Funeral services were to be per formed on the morrow, and a coffin covered with a pall stood on a bier at the upper er.d of the aisle. The white embroidery of a skull and cross bonea shone out strangely in tbo twilight. We were hardly Mated when the organ pealed forth At first it was loo powerful; its fall swell pained the ear and seemed to overwhelm the oathedral. Anon, the sound died away, and a sweet song, as of human voices, rose from the heart of the organ Now the chant swept into the far distance, so that the ear strained in listening, yet still one clear female voice came distinct and tender, sustained by other voices in a harmony, bo faint that it seemed like the anthem of a dis tant angelic choir. Anon it broke forth full and strong as though the singing company bad come to the hither side of some mountain which before kept their voices from us Again it swept away and again returned, the notes so sweet and unearthly that the organist had power, not only over the keys of his instru ment, but over the emotions of his hearers, and moved them to involuntary tears There was a pause : and then the triumphant hal lelujah in the "Messiah" burst from the or gan. The instrument seemed to speak tho words ; the music rolled through the churh in a sea of sound and throbbed and broke against the arches of the roof The whole building seemed to pul?ate, and then agun tho sound died away and al! was still. The sweet notes of a pastoral next arose, ar.l tho pipe of the shepherd called to the Alpine echoes which answered him in tones of irrial melody. Again and again he piped, and again and again the voice replied, till be threw aside nis instrument and shouted to the echo a song of tho mountains which it re turned with the same sweetness and precision It was like standing again in the Alpine pass and bearing the notes shouted close beside us mount far above end cling in wierd, unearth ly and oft-repeated tones around the jagged peaks of the Wettenhorn. Everything about us made the music im pressive; the vast cathedral with its dim col umns and arches, lighted here and there where the pale moonbeams struggled in; the heavy ahadows couching in the distant aisle?, and trembling anear tne organ, where tho faint light of a lamp made the gloom oniy more manifest ; the slow vibrations of tho holy oil, burning before the altar; the still ness of the assembled listeners; crd the deeper stillness and moro utter darkness of the velvet pall whose folds rested motionless on the cold pavement and told of a house where the ligbt of day comes not, where mu sic, whether of gayety or worship, sounds not. where no ear listens where no eye weep-, where no heart throbs in emotion and in life And yet that eloquent hallelujah bursting forth in faith and certainty above this symbol of the grave, aroused the soul to holy enthu siasm and to a rejoiciug cense of Him who is resurrection and the life; and it seemed as it in far-off notes we beard a voice chanting: 441 know that my Redeemer liveth and th.t lie shall stand at the latter day upon the earth; and though after my skin worms de stroy this body, yet in my flesh shall I ace God." Cnoosiso Papbr hugiwcs ?We are in clined to think that it could be predicted that (what may be found from experience) the proprietor of the house will invariably reject any pattern selected and laid before him. Nothing will satisfy but the overhauling of some hundred pieces. 4* Why. sir." said an intelligent paper hanger to an architect, about one of these selections. "I have uoticel over and over again that gentlemen get u bewildered with the lot of patterns that pass before them, that sometimes they end by choosing actually the very worst of the lot Instead of surprise at such a result, it would not be consistent with ascertained facts in physics if it were not so. It has been conclu sively shown by M. Chevreal that the eye. in looking at Color after color, is gradually un dergoing change, so that the character ot eaeh color is altered; in short, the color is vitiated. An analogous result is unquestionably pro duced in form and proportion; indeed, the recognition of it constitutes the wh<>lu art of design. Marriage ?44 Marr.age is the mother of the world; it preserves nations, fills the citics and churche?, and peoples heavens. An un married man. like a fly in the heart of a sweet apple, dwells in perpetual sweetness, but alone and cannot enj >y it for want of com any " Marriage, like the industrious bee, uilds houses, forms societies and republics, sends out ooloLics, and blesses the world. It is one of tho good institutions which God at first gave us Even in Eden it was not good far man to be alone. Man was too complete, as at first mado, to be entirely happy. He was independent without having any depend ing upon bim He was not to be happy with out having some other to care for, so the Lord God took from him one of his own ribs, and out of it made him a wife. Thus it needs a wife to restore man to completeness as such, and more especially to complete his happiness by having a wife to depend on him. A Dutchman had made a handsome fortune in Philadelphia by sellirg milk, lie started for Hollana, hi? home, with two bag' of gold pieces. When on shipboard he counted one bag of his dear treasure. A mischievous monkey chanced to watch his operations. As soon as the counted bag had been replaced and tied up, Jocko seiied it, and soon found his way to the masthead He opened the hac, and after eyeing the brilliant gold, proceeded to drop one piece on the deck and another in the water, until lie had empted the bag. Wben he had finished, the Dutchman threw up his arms, exclaiming : 44 Pie jinkos, he must to de dyvel, for vat come from the vater he dors gibe to de vater. and vat come from de milk he does gibe to me." Bees Quail ?Two remarkable facts are to be noted in respect to the advancemei.t of the whites. The first is that the quail, un known to the Indian, makes its fir?t appear ance?from whence no uiau kpows?when the white mm plows aud plants his fields, afford ing an abundance of delicious food to the pio neers The second fact is, the honey bee is not found in the country while in the powc* ?ion of the Indians. It keeps just in advance of the advancing wave of civilization When the Indians see swarms of these new visitors, their wise men sadly acknowledge that it is time for them to abandon their pleasant hunt ing grounds and the graves of their father-, and seek new homes.
