C"SK&AT,?" EVENING STAR. THE DISGUISED LOVER. BT KI5T. My friend Tom has a natural affection for dirt, or rather dirt has a natural affection for Tom It is (o him what gold was to Midas? whatever he touches turns to dirt No matter how white the cravat?no matter bow immae ulate the reft the moment it comes within the sphere of Tom's influence, its whiteness is gone; it is immaculate no longer. Dogs, sweeps, and lamplighter never pass him, with out leaving upon his dress unequivocal mark* of their presence Once, and only once, I saw him oross the street without encountering the wheels of a carriage I opened my mouth to congratulate him, and before I could utter one word, it was filled with mud. The care less blockhead lay at my feet, full length in the gutter. At my earnest solicitation, he once purchased a suit of precisely mud color It was a oapital idea He crossed the street three times; he walked half a mile, and re turned, in appearance, at least, unscathed The thing was unprecedented. True, he was welcomed by the affoctiona'e caresses of a dog that had been enjoying the coolness of a neigh boring horsepond ; true, he received a shower bath from the wheels of an omnibus. But to plaster mud on Tom's new coat was " to gild refined gold?to paint the lily." " Tom will be a neat man jet " I said as I witnessed the success of my plan. In about half an hour it was my fate to meet a gentteman with seven stripes of green paint on bis back?it was my friend Tom ; he had been leaning against some newly painted win dow blinds. His uian Caesar declares that he *? can't see de use ob brak a boot when lie nebsr s'ay bracked and his washerwoman, with a very proper regard f r fcer own reputation, has beer, compelled to discard him, not from any ill will, bat, as she declared, with uplifted hands, ?4 if any one should ask me if I washed Mr Smith's clothes, what could I tell them ?" Eat there were very f<sw things in this world with which Turn could have more easily dispensed than the services of his washerwoman. Having no other amusement, one morning, I strolled over to Tom's rcom. I ascended the s'Mirs, and heard his voice in a very decided tone: *4 But it must be done, and so there is an end to it." 44 Really," was the reply, "anything within the limits of possibility; out to make a coat in ten boors ?I will promise anything in the world ; but I really fear I shall be unable to perform " " If double your price would be any ob ject" 41 Certainly, sir, if you insi t upon it?cer tainly. I will put every man in my shop upon it?it shall be done in time. Good morn ing, sir."^ The door opened, and a fellow with shears and measures passed out. What could Tom be deing with a tailor7 4> Just the mnn I wanted to see," exclaimed Tom. 441 require your advise upun a very important nfftir?which of theee cravats do you think most beaming?" And he spread before me some half dozen, of every hue and fashion. 44 Now, what in the name of all that is *owm derful does this mean, Tom? A fancy ba^P is it? You have chosen an excellent dis guise ; your nearest friends will never know you. But you cannot support the character ; if you hud taken that of a chimney sweep, now?but that woul.l have been too natural Tell me, Tom, what ?' es all this mean?" 44 Why, the fact is, Frank," passing a hand through his huir, redolent of macassar, 44 I have concluded?I think I shall be a little more neat in future. You doubtless remember the good advice you gave me some time since; it has had an excellent effect) 1 assure you " Now it so happened that of all tha good ad vice I had given Tcm, this was the very first instance in which he had seen fit to follow it. So I could not attribute the metamorphosis of my friend to my eloquence. Who but a wo man ever changed a sloven to a fop. 44 Pray, where are you going this evening." I oontinued,44 that you must have a new coat so suddenly ?" "Going f Nowhere in particular. I had, indeed, some idea of calling on ray old friend, Mr Murray. No harm in that I hope " Conviction began to flash upon me. 44 Your old friend Mr Murray. And his young niece, Miss Julia, has no share in the visit, I suppose? I heard that she arrived in town last night." 44 Now, upon my word, Frank, you mistake me entirely. 1 did not know that she was in town last night?when I?that is, when I?I did not know anything about it." 44And so you were there last night, too! Really, this is getting along bravely." 44 Why the fact is, Frank, you must know everything. I called last evening to see Mur ray on some business about the real estate you know I had no more idea of meeting a wc man than a boa-constrictor My beard was three days old, my collar ditto, and the rest of my dress in excellent keeping I became engaged in conversation, and some how or other I forgot all about the real estate." 4* And so you are going again to-night?and that is the secret of jour new coat 7" 44 By no means ; I wanted a new coat, and tailors arc so long, you know. Do you think blue will become me ?' Blue is her favorite? that is?I mean blue*'? 44 Oh, go on?don't stammer?blue is her favorite color, isn't it?" 44 The fact is, Frank?take another glass of this wine?the fact is?good wine, isn't it ? been two vovages to the Indies?the fact is, I suppose?I rather fancy?I am a little in love. Try some of that sherry What are the symptoms, Frank-a queer feeling about the heart, and something which drives the blood through one like lightning!" "Exaatly !" I believe I have seen Julia ; short and chubby, isn't she?with red hair, and a little squint eyed ?" 44 Frank, 1 never did knock you down, though I have been tempted to do so a great many times; but, if you don't stop that non sense, I will " I 44 Quite valiant in defence of your lady love. Well, Tom, I will confeas that the is a lovely girl, and to-morrow I will call and learn your success. So, good morning." " Well, Tom, what success ?" 44 Would you believe it? Ehe did not recog nise me." 44 Not reoogniie you?" 41 No. You know what a quia that Murray is. As soon aa he saw me enter, dressed in such style, he came up shook hands with me, and without giving me a chance to say ore word; introduced me to Julia as Mr. Fredtr ick Somebody. And would you believe it, the little witoh did not know me. I think I should not forget her so easily Nor was that all. Murray said something about the fellow who callod there the previous evening?a oountry cousin, he said clear enough, but an incorrigble slovtfn And Julia said ne dressed like a barbarian?just think of that, Frank, a barbarian. She shall pay for that yet. Such eye#?and *be steps like a queen Well, Frank, a clean collar does make a vast dif ference in a man's appearance. Lovely as Uehe herself*.

J Stoht or a Leo ?There lived in Pittsburg aouie years ago, an old fellow who served ia the war of 1812, in which he had lost a leg. Before he enlisted, he courted a young lady of this plsoe, and. knowing that ah? would take a whole man or none, he kept kishaviag lost a leg a secret, and replaced it by a wood** one In his absence, the lady had met with another admirer, so that, on the return of Timberleg. he and his rival were on teriae of deadly enmity One Sunday night, Timberleg went to see his love rather early, with the in tention of popping the question, and, that he might not shirk, had imbibed not a little to Kive him courage. The lady, not being ready to receive him, he eat down in the parlor to await her coning But the liqaor proved too strong for him, end he had scarcely eat down when he fell asleep His rival coming in at the moment, thought this an opportunity to satisfy his cariosity regarding Timber's right leg, which he had always regarded with sus picion So, slipping up, he quietly slit tha right leg of Timber's pantaloons, as far as the knee, when, at a glance he saw all To run for a saw was the work of moment, and in a few minutes, the leg was calmly reposing on the centre table, its owner slumbering nneoa jci us of the amputation. Meanwhile, tha whilom surgeon had sloped When the lady entered the room, Timbering was promenad ing the room, after the manner of a turkey during the few moments of life succeeding de capitation The writer is very sorry, that, being opposed to profanation, he cannot favor the render with Timberleg's remarks. Suffice it to say, that the lady's remark, on entering 'he room was, Good Heaven s! thatofTimber leg quite the reverse. Timber got a new leg, but ne didn't marry that gal.?Yank* No~ tioa.

Six years ago Minnesota was a myth.

TarrKLEB.?It is thought that a discovery |has at last been made, which, if it really turns, out what is supposed, may be the cause of a trade of absolutely unlimited extension being opened to France A man of the name of llosseau, in the department of Vaucluse, would appear to have found out the means for the propagation of truffles, a secret which has hiiherto escaped all the researches of science. This man has been following out his plan, as the department I journals say, for the last seven years, and his first essay has been en tirely crowned with success His notion has been, that the precious excrescence was depen dent upon a peculiar kind of oak, which he calls tbe truffle oak (ehevt trufUr), and ha has accordingly made plantations of such. A few days back a certain number of persons were invited to witness tbe first hunt, and two pigs were turned into an oak plantation of five years standing The experiment succeed ed so entirely that in a few hours, and on a plantation of not more than three hectare*, twenty two pounds of very fine truffles were turned up, and Mr Kosseau says a simihsr hunt may take place every twenty-days dur ing four mouths of the year. Wtas Mrs Cc-hxingham MARRixn??Wj presume, says tbe New York Herald, that tt?i Kev Uriah Mirvine has settled this problem by the evidence he gave on Tuesday before the Surrogate. It seems now established be yond reasonable question that Mra. Cunning ham was tbe wife 'of Dr Burdell, who mar ried her in Dr Marvina's house in tha pres ence of Miss Cunningham, as stated by that lady and her mother on the inquest. This seems to clear the way tor the prosecu tion to a very marked extent. Had it devol ved upon the Stato prosecutor to prove that E;kel bad personated Dr Burdell at the mar riage ceremony, he would hava bean met by difficulties of a very seriius character, which might perhaps have involved the ruin of the whole prosecution. This quicksand happily indicated at this early stage of the proceed ings, the State officer will apply himself whol ly to the narrower and less complicated ques tion?Did Mrs Cuuningham, being the wife of Dr. Burdell, compass or cause his death? The motive for the deed is now established. Black Mailikg ih Losdox ?The London courts have recently bad befwre them asingu* lar case of attempted extortion of money from wealthy persegg through fear of ex posing their private vices. A man, named Harrison, who had been convicted and served his time out for procuring young girls, in Belgium, to sup ply the fashionable houses of ill fame in Lon don, after he had obtained his liberty, sent bills for wine to various noblemen, frequen ters of the bouse where he had previously been employed. Some of these were sent to persons wh o had never been in the bouse?as the Duke of Cambridge; others to persons who made it a rule to 44 pay as you go ?as the Marquis of Bath. The tear of exposure did not, however, produce its effect upon these persons ' Rely ing upon their rank, probably, as much as upon their virtue, they related the claims, and suffered suits to be brought, in which tbe 1 conspiracy to extort money was marie manifest. Tbe oonsequenee was, that Harrison was turn ed out of oourt with derision, and will proba bly be brought back under an indictment. Pbrxahext Photographs.?A most inter esting and useful discovery is reported, in the London journals, to have recently been made iu the photographic art. by Mr. P Delamotte. a member of the Londfn Photographic Asso ciation. It is a well known fact tnat photi graphio impressions, taken by the ordinary process, are not lastiag; the colors change, and the more delicate lints disappear, thus destroying the finish and aocuracy of the im pression By this discovery of Professor Del amotte, the difficulty referred to has been sur mounted, and photographic prints will, by this newly invented prooess, henceforth have the permanence of line engravings.
