[From Cushing's Reminiscence*.] There was once, you know, a King of Castile, called Don Alonso, the Learned, and truly, 1 think. he wiw raoro learned than wise, for he had the presumption to say, that if his counsel had ;>cen taken at the creation of the world, he could have arranged things much more conveniently than we find them ; and the ancient writings tell us that God punished him for his impiety, with m.iny and grievous afflictions in his old age. Well, Don Alonso was pricking on towards Aranda, at the head of a troop of lancers, when darkness overtook him near the convent of San Millan de Cogollos. Of course it was resolved, a* of common accord, to demand hospitality ot the good faith Mrs of San Millan. an<i the party n?de up to the gates, nothing doubting thoy should be cordially received, and should mend their repast by emptying a few of the wine skins of the monastery. But when they arrived at the gate and a.^ked for admission, the porter purlify bade them begone, supposing or pretend ing U> suppose that they were a band of moun tain outlaws come to rob the convent, and it was some time before Don Alonso's people could bring the friars to their senses and procure ad mission within their walls; nor even then until the soldiers h:td bejrnn todevise means of enter ing by force. The King. by this, had fallen into n t >wering passion, which it required all theob piousness of the Abbot, and all the hospit able attendance of his monks, to pacify and rilay. l>i;t. in discussing the contents of their cellar and larders, Don Alonso cam" to be somewhat mollified, and thus ended with im T*>sing on the tno^ks such terms a.s none but a k-w ?rm and star-gazer like himself would ever hive ?imagined. " Father Cayetano," said he.'* you or your ] ~>p!? have done that which I might well visit upon you to your cost; but I feel inclined to U'imit your hninble acknowledgments and over look your offence; and I will do so. provided you will be prepared on the morrow, before I depart, to ansrv?r me f >ur questions. You shall Te'.l me h<>w much the moon woigr.s; how many cf^ks it would take to hold tho sc;i ? how much the King >f Castile is w .rth ? and what I am thinking of at the time? arid woe betide you aid your housa if you fail to answer me cor roctly to all these inquiries."* Hereupon the old king retired to rest, leaving tho mocks sorely puzzled by the questions whi~h lie had Riven them for meditation, for J thev had abundantly more wealth than wit. I Th ?v pou-lcre I in vain upon the odd fancies of 1 ti.e King, and tho morning found them as ill : pr-parea to solve the mysterious questions as whnn they were first propounded. When hon est Jose, the miller of the convent, came in the morning to leave them wherewithal to furnish for the royal table for breakfast, he found the monks full of trouble and dismay; and on learning the cause of alarm from the porter, he undertook to answer the King's questions, if they would permit him to assume the gown and t >n-ure. Father Cayetano saw not well what c >ur?e to pursue; but reflecting, at length, that the miller wa.* known for a shrewd and cunning varlet. and that if he failed to satisfy the King, it might all be passed off as matter of merri ment, he concluded to venture upon the expe dient suggested by the miller. Jose, in fine, I was carelully shaven, dressed in the garb of ( the order, and presented himself at the ap- . pointed time before Don Alonso. ?* Well," says the king, " how much does the ' moon weigh ?" | - A pound.'' replied the miller without a ? moment's hesitation. '? A pound," demanded the king, " how do } you make that out ?** ?' \fhy," said Jose. "the moon has four quar- | ters. all the world know?, and four quartere ' make but one pound; and if you think it weight more, you are welcome to send and have it wiijhed."' The kin? was at a lot* to know what to say at this, and so he proceeded to the next ques tion. " How many casks would it require to bold the sea V* ?? Only one to be sure," Mid Jose, *' provided It be large enough." It was impossible to dispute this, so the king Lai no alternative for it but to put his third question. " How much am 1 worth V* ?? How much is the King of Castile worth ?" said the miller, "why twenty-nine pieces of sil ver." "Only twenty-nine pieces of silver?" cried the king in a rage " Yes." said the miller, "forour Saviour was t rated and sold for thirty, and I put you but one ? pice below our Saviour." At this palpable evasion of his inquiry the ' king began to laugh, and could do no less than put his last question. " What am X thinking of at this moment ?" Hitherto Jose had received and answered the i questions of the King with an air of mock dig- < nity verging into broad humor ; but he saw that ? the crisis was now at hand, and that it behoved him to take heed what he did; and it was in all 1 humility that he replied: " Scnor. you are thinking I am the Abbot ' Cayetano." ?? T > be sure." said the King; u and who else Miould you be ? And, seeing you have an twer?d my four questions. I suppose I must be p-?>l as my word, anl suffer your inhospital Ity and your latinese to go soot free." At this. J me fell on bis knees at the feet of the Kinsc, and confessed the trick which the 1 lurdane monks had fallen upon to escape from J their embarrassment; and the King, being ! highly amused by the whole affair, very freely ' pardoned the imposition, and took the witty I miller into his sen-ice: and Jose played his' part so well in those times, when blows were i the current eoin of all Castile, that some thirty 1 or forty years afterwards the house of San Mil- ! Inn. in consideration of a welcome addition, to | their gl:be and vineyard, performed a bounte ous allowance of masses for the spiritual repose of Don Jo*e de la Molina ! rr P Rogao died suddenly at Albany.

Corr*tpohdtne? of TK? Slar. Gioxoktowx, April 14,1337. Our cltlxens generally seem to be more alive to the Importance of public education at the present time than we have ever known them before, and If the present little excitement upon the aubject shall result in securing to the town a system in keeping with the age. and a number of schools adequate to the wants of the people, we are sure | it will be cause for congratulation to all. We fear, however, that the anticipations of many iu this particular are destined never to be realized, as a memorial froin the Guardians (of the Public Schools) Is now pending before the Corporation, for permission to have tTie entire amount arising from the poll tax placed to their credit, and be yond the control of the Corporation, and to ex pend a large amount of it in altering and repair ing the old building and furniture now occupied by the few schools in existence. To grant the pr^rer of the Guardians, at this time, wo think would be altogether injudicious, for several rea sons. First, the fund asked for is evidently the property of the people, and as such their repre sentatives ought to be its only custodians. In the second place, some several hundred dollars have been expended during the last year or two upon this old building. And in the third place, we are heartily opposed toexpending one dollar more of the school fund for such purposes than is ac tually necessary to cleanse and purify the interior of the building now in use, until schools shall have been established in other portions of the town sufficient to meet the pressing wants of the people. And we feel satisfied that in this posi tion wc are sustained l?v a very large majority of those who contributed that portion of the school fund arising from,the school or poll tax. Neither do we believe that thev will consent to anv other disposition being made of their money than in the establishment of other schools. We h^ve heard it whispered that an effort would b-; made in our City Councils to reduce the pres ent standing appropriation (S'i.SOO) to the school fund. This we are not inclined to believe. The Councils are composed of gentlemen of too much foresight, sound judgment, and public spirit tak- .1 retrogade step in a matter of so much mo m?*nt at this day. Retrenchment In our Corpora tion expenses, all will admit, is necessary; but we expect to see it made in other quarters, where less lasting injury would be done, and by break ing up a system, which ha* been in operation for vears. of running the Corporation in debt for mnch that could be dispensed with* without any previous sanction of law Experience every where has demonstrated the fact that nothing is lost in educating the masses. lTpon the contrary, it is like bread cast upon the waters. Thosecom mnnities that arc most liberal in this particular are the most prosperous and happy. We are one of tno?e who believe that the right to hang or inflict any other punishment for viola tions of law presupposes the right to educate. According to this axiom, however, were we as a community weighed in the scales of even-handed justice we should be found wanting ; that many of those who have heretofore been punished for violating the lawn of the Coiporation would be found to have l>een more sinned against than sin ning. We therefore confidently hope and expect ere long to see our city placed upon a footing, in the matter of public schools, with our sister city of Washington. To enable the proper authorities to do this, we think the present school fund. ?3.592, Is amply sufficient. Let them, in the first place institute and set in operation for the internal government and direction of th?*schools,such a system a* has b?-en in successful operation in Washington for several years. Then let them establish six schools, two more than we now have; the additional ones to be located In the western part of the town. That the school rind arising from the poll tax and standing appropriation from the general fund is amply sutflcient to carry into operation this plan, we* think we can demonstrate to the entire satisfaction of every candid mind, which we now propose to do. as follows: One male grammar school, teacher's salary, ?850 Junior department to do., do. do 550 One female do , do. do. 4U0 Junior department to do., do. do. 30U Two primary schools, teachers' salaries *250 each 500 Fuel for six schools?four tons of coal, one cord of wo'mI and sixteen bushels of charcoal, each 196 Rooid rent for two additional schools.... 100 Two new stoves for do. do 25 Sixty new desks, etc., do. do 190 83.091 Leaving a surplus of @300 for oontlngent and extraordinary expenses. Spkctatob. Romantic Chapter frem Parisian Life. [From the Courrier des Etats L'nis ] The Hotel Mole, with which are connected so many memories, has just been purchased by a ce lebrity of another sort?a charagraphical celeb rity. who left the theatre to marry a man of the world. In 1-31 or IKS, a charming young danseuse, of admirable figure?slender, elegant, light, with magnificent eyes, and limbs divinely formed? mad" her debut at the opera. In the opera ballet, the Temptation, in the second act, by order of Satan, diamonds, flowers and pearls are thrown Into a boiler, while an infernal circle surrounding it chant diabolical music. Frotnth sboilercoines forth a lovely young girl?the beautiful Miranda? M'lle Duvernay. In 106. M'lle Duvernay left the opera, to the great regret of its patrons. She went to London, where she met with great success. She was sur rounded by the seductive influences which her position and beauty attracted, and soon gave her. heart and life to a very rich man, who became passionately attached to her. M 'lle Duvernay had sumptuous apartments, ele gantly furnished, and numerous domestics; every week she gave a dinner, and invited some of the most gay and distinguished men of London. In a word, she led the most sumptuous and luxu riant life of the world. In the meantime an aristocratic grandame died in London. This lady had with her a model femmt de chambrr, a soft of governess, of haughty bearing and exquisite manners, full of intelli gence and devotion. Death only separated her from her mistress. M'lle Duvernay wished to secure the services of this femmt de tknmbre. Hie thought her presence would add to her con sideration, and give to her home something more of aristocratic position. The terms of service were agreed upon, and the yonng woman. Miss Temple, entered into the employ of M'lle Du vernay. Three days after this, brtng the time of one of her weekly dinners, the guests had assembled in the saloon; already the dinner had been an nounced ; but the mistress of the mansion did not appear. They inouired, they searched, and finally found her In her chamlier, lying upon the bed. ner f*< e hid in her hands, with all the sign* of profoun4de*pair. '? What f? this, my dear?" asked the future husband, with a tender solicitude. ?'It is this," replied M'lle Duvernay; "It Is that I shall go; 1 shall return to Paris and re I enter the Opera; I prefer to be only a simple dan than to )?e exposed to such insults as 1 have just received!" 44 What insult ?" " Oh, the most cruel, the most humiliating ?*' ?* But what V* '?Mins Temple leaves me. She has given me to understand that, though she consented to enter my house, she was not aware that my position was not legitimate, and that she finds it impossi ble to remain with me. I shall die ! No, I will not die, but I will return to Paris to-morrow." M'lle Duvernay was so seriously affected with her chagrin that she was compelled to take her bed. She was visibly changed by her sorrow. The light forsook her eye. Finally, her lover, touched by her tears, her sorrows and her suffer ings, entered her apartment one morning, and said to her: ?? Do not weep, my dear; Miss Temple will re main with you." ?'Truly? How have you altered her resolu tion ?" '*1 have just informed her that in eight days I will marry you." ^ The reader can Judge of the effect of this an nouncement. M lie Duvernay was soon restored | to health. In a few days she married her lover, Mr. Lyne Stevens, whose father was worth ?90, : 0U0 of revenue, and who assured, to his daughter I in-law a dowry of *2U0.U00 francs. Ten years have passed since the marriage, and Mr. Stevens has never regretted it. It Is Mr. and Mrs. Stevens who have just arrived at Paris, and have purchased 1'Hotel Mole. It is a striking example of the vicissitudes of human affiirs that a simple danseuse becomes mistress of a grand mansion, where the memory of the old minister of Louis Pbtllippe carries you ba?;k to that of the great Mathew Mole.
