SINGLE CoriES ONE CENT. A PLEASANT PICTURE. In the London National Magazine we find a a very charming story called '? Friend* till Death We quote part of it : " Did any mischance in business Wall Gilli flower. would he go to hi* lawyer* Not he He would saj, ?? send for Bardsley." Did Bard sley fall ill. would he send for the doctor? By no means, ile sent for Giilidower. And so they lived from youth to manhood, and from manhood to old age. 2 had the honnor to be on pretty friendly term* with both of them (though much their junior.) ami I may say I icrew old in their company. But I was never to bardsley what Giilidower was, nor to Gillidow- i er what Bardsley. Far from it. I think I I spoilt my claim to their full oonfidenee by let- I ting out early in our acquaintance that 1 knew ?>in?thing of Greek 1 have wished from the Wtoin ot my heart that Greece and Greek had never existed, or, been known, rather than I should have been deprived of the honor of sitting in the upper and inner chamber of two such hearts. I would have given all history to ?m> Bardsley. nil the glory of antiquity to be Gilliflower. " Both men j remained bachelors to the end of their days. People often wondered why they did not mar ry. they beiug both ardent though respectful aimirersof the othef sex. and strongly attach ed to children Many a time have I seen Bar islev pitting at his own door, on a fine .-?nmiaer's evening, plaving with Pome curly headed bjy or rosy-cheeked girl. He would re peal all the stories and rhymes that they de lighted in: and Bardsley'* knee was the'eoek borse of mauy and many a journey to tliefaiuud crow t?f Banbury. Nor was that journey ever ma le in vain: for at the end of it there was al ways a halt penny or a penny forthcoming from B irdsley s capacious pocket to rewspl the ! yjotherful rider. And thei? Bardsley would ' -ay. " Now run away to Gilliflower's. my dear, and buy yourself some barley sugar.'* And *? illifl >wer was known to the rising generation I thereabout to give the largest half-penny worth j ot barley sugar of any grocer far or near And j *> loud were the children of the two old men? t I am speaking of their latter days now?that they called them by ihe name of" uncle.*' Many a child of that neighborhood grew up i to man's estate, still calling them Uncle Bard- j ."iev and Uncle Giilidower, never doubting but | that the two old men were a* much their uncles ; in relationship as they were in kindness and affection The reader may wonder, therefore, i as the neighbors did. why two men so well adapted for the holy ,-tate of matrimony had (?ever entered that state. I think I know why ibrr d-d not. When Bardsley and Gilliflower rirst beeatne acquainted (as the reader knows ' how.) the latter was beginning to have" serious thoughts about a certain Jessy Ward, the licco of a well to-do wax chandler in Toooum sf. ! He had ->eea Je?y at Church on several occa- ; *K>ns, and once he had walked home with her and her uncle Old Ward a>ked him to tea. ' and he went and fpa?red upon Je^y's good 1 looks and winning ways?having no appetite ! i<r the mudir.s?until, on coming away, he fe!t as if his heart was too big for his bosom. ' He could not sleep for several nights afterward, ! and what seemed to keep him wakeful was the , image of sweet Jessy Ward, and that strange bigness about the heart But shortly after thi*. Jespy went away to reside with an invalid aunt in the country, and j ilil not come back lor nearly u year. In the meantime. Bardsley had got acquainted, and heeome friendly with Giilidower. Whtu Jes^v returned, he thought of going to call at old ard s. and he mentioned his intentiou to Gilliflower What Gilliflower sail I don't know; but at any rate kedidn'fgo. I am sure ' that Gilliflower did not discourage him iu any way, but my opinion is. that Bardsley con ceived the i lea that Gilliflower was not an ad vocate for matrimony, so he he gave up all thoughts of Jessy Ward. Bardsley. however, was for once mistaken in hi? estimate of Gilli tl"W?r > views. I have reason to know that Gilliflower meditated matrimony at the time thai Bardsley did. but that he gave up the idaa. tearful lest, by taking a wife, be should lose his friend And so they remained bachelors I <r eaeh other s sake to the end. Alas, that the end should ever come to such friendship as j theirs. But it did come. The winter of life overtook thom together as thew wandered onward hand in hand. Its I snows fell upon tLein equally, yet geutly. No j longer able to walk to taoir nightly resort, they now passed the evenings at home. Bardsley ! going next door to Giilidower, or Gilliflower ; gjiag to Bardley; or of a summer's evening ; they sat side by side at their doors, faithful to the last to the pipe and flagon of ale. There, f." they smoked and chatted, as of old time, the children played round them, like flowerets twinkling about the roots of withered and de caying oaks. But an evening came when Gilii fi ?wer was no longer able to toddle out to meet his friend Bardaiey sat awaiting him. but he came not. Gilliflower's old housekeeper came to tell Bardsley that her master was very ill. and that she had helped him up to bed The 1 flagon of ale remained on the bench untasted, the pipe unused, the chairs empty. Giilidower had smoked his last pipe and drunk hi:> last pint. He grew feebler day by day, and at last his mind wandered. He raved about Bardsley: " Where is Bardsley * O. will some one send for Bardsley Bardsley was there by his side almost day and night, but his friend no longer t kc?w him. I went in by Bardsley's requeai to | what I could for his poor old friend, and I tried ; to make him understand that Bardsley wa* sit- ! ting by bim. that it was Bardsley who was ; holding his hand. '"Go away. ?0 away."'he *?id, " you are not Bardsley. \\ hat use are i you to me '?it is Bardsley I want. O, if you will only send for him. I know he will come!" ihen he raved about a bill that was coming ! <1u? to-morrow and for which he was not pre pared - I must go to Bardsley," he said, I Bardsley will help me out. I know ho will, i oive me my hat and stick.** " Hush, hush !" I eried. ?? Bardsley is here. Speak to him, Bardsley, let him hear your voice." The olu :uan called hi4 friend by nam". ''Gilliflower.

As these words were 1 uttered the bands of the two friends were clasp ed upon the bed It was the clasp of death! 1 Lat uwuorrow ?oou came.

When I was a young lad, just beginning to think about the girls,"said Charley. "I was monstrous pious *nd went to meeting every Sunday; but I hare since come to the conclu sion that it was not as much for the ooncern I felt for the -'good of my soul," as it was for the sake of gazing about the room, and thinking to myself which girl was the prettiest, and which one I would rather marry. ??Well, one day I singled out a girl who I thought eclipsed all croation for beauty; in fact, I was soon head-over-hoels in love with her. But a few minutes sufficed for me to form a resolution to see her home, pop the question, and, if possible, to strike a bargain iunuedi- ; ately. I was all in a tremble. The sermon seemed a week long, and very uninteresting. Many, no doubt, were praying for their neigh bors. and their neighbors' enildren, but with me it was quite different?I was praying for the meeting to break. At length tho meeting did break, and I broke with it?for mv hat; but, to my surprise and mortification, { could not find it until after the object ot my affections had gotten so far tho start of me. that it Would have required quite an ef fort to have overtaken her. Beside.-. there wns another consideration?my hat had been under foot, and was so badly soiied. that I was rather ashamed to be seen with it on. Taking all these things into consideration, I resolvod to wait for the uext opportunity. From that time I wim a changed chap. I could think of nothing but the girl I had seen at meeting, except it was that of persuading tho ?'governor'* to buy me a new suit of Sunday clothes. The old lady sided with me in this last ]tarticular. and between us both, we succeeded in carrying our points. I was rigged out in j style?cloth coat, satin vest, cassimere pants, j and. to crown all. a beaver that cost five dollarj. '?This will fix things," thought I; "could I but see her now. I might set her down as mine." In a few evenings, there was praver-mecting at "I'nion meeting-house," and I. with my new fixings, wended my way thither; not. however, until my mother had given mc much good ad vice concerning the management of my new rig- j ging?more particularly trie head, as I bad but a short time before, got my old one crushed up at meeting. I had not been in the meeting-house long, be fore her whom I most anxiously expected, came in; and from thence until the services were con cluded. I was in a sea of trouble, lest soxnc fel low should cut mc out. or something of the kind. As soon as the congregation was dismissed. I "yoked her," and off we started. When we reached her home the sun was jnst setting, and t 40, to be mannerly, her old dad asked me to ?'stay all night." 1 had no objections, and af- j ter supper was over. I told Betty (for that was j the girl's name.) that I'd like to chat with her ! a little more. She had no objection?, but said I we must go to the kitchen, as the old folk9 didn't I like to be disturbed by a light in the " big ' room," when they were to be<i. To all this I i consented of course, and so we were soon on the ; very best of terms. I should have been ex- j treincly happy, but for one cause?the stamp of - plenty, in the form of grease, was abundantly impressed upon everything in the room, ex cepting the cliairs upon which we sat, and con sequently I was much troubled about my new hat. What should I do with it' I did not want to have grease upon it?no, that would never do! Finally, I resolved to keep it on my head, judging that to be the safest place. Be ing thus relieved of my greatest embarrass ment, 1 went about the work of courting in real earnest. After many fine things had been said, and a marriage contract bad been partially entered into. I proposed a kias. You may be sure she refused, but I insisted?a scuffle ensued, which lasted until she was completely exhausted. Being unable to hold out longer, she turned up her pretty lips and said: "If you must kiss mc?here, but don't you ever undertake such a thing again?you brute." I stooped over to perform the operation, when, all of a sudden. I felt an unusual lightness about mv head. Before I had time to think whether 1 was going to faint or not, I heard a kiud ot splashing about my feet, and casting my eyes downward, I saw?great Heavens! what did I ace ? There lay my five-dollar bea ver. completely iminersod in a filthy compound of dish-water, cucumber peals, " tatcr" skins, and the Lord kuows what besides, that had been accumulated in a tub. under the fascinating cognomen of " swill." This was a predicament for you?what should I do ? If Betty had observed it the matter would not have been so bad ; but she had not; could I tell her ? No! Heaven forbid! At first I thought of lifting it out, but imagining the spectacle it would present, lay courage failed me. "But then," reasoned I, "she will be sure to sec it ere long, and then how she will blu3h. Already she is looking at me. as if ahe is wondering why I don't kiis her?perhaps I had better not stay any longer ;" and suiting the action to the word, I made a leap for the door, and was off like a comet. From thence all was darkness, all was confusion, until I found myself at home?bareheaded?receiving a raking fire from the old man and the old wo man at the same time. This is b.id enough to thiuk of, but it is not the worst. There is one thing that now ring-1 in my cars, and will con tinue to do so as long as I live?it is the last words of Betty. Poor thing, rupj?>sing that I bad taken offence at her resisteuce. slie called after me as I shot out the door : ??Oh, Charley, comeback ! I was only in fun, come back. do. Oh ! Charley !" Sioss or a Good Horsema*.?I know of few more manual arts that, though they certainly call for no great excercise of mental attributes, are more difficult of attainment than the art of driving well. In fact, I can hold out bnt little encouragement to those who begin late in life ; for I moat honestly tell them the utmost they can arrive at is. to drive with safety under or dinary circuinstance*. This is found exempli fied particularly with medical men, many of whom have driven their gigs for years, and look quite a9 much astray in them as they did the first day they started one. A man may be made a very fair, nay, a good horseman, who begins late in life, if properly instructed. It is true he probably may never show as a man likely to cross a country with hounds ; still he may pass muster among the generality of horsemen. But there is a mannerism in the way of doing the most trivial thing as respects driving, that shows at once the man who knows what he is about and he who does not. You never see a coach man. whether gentleman or otherwise, get on to j his box. or into his phu?ton, without glancing his eye over his horses ; the man who is not oue step* into his vehicle as if that was his only e.?re. and, after seating himself in it about as i handily as a clown would seat himself in a drawing room chair, takes, or is given his reins. aa<l. with his hand or hands about a fx?tnear< r the plash-board than one accustomed to driving would hold them, be gets, a9 Jack would say, "under weigh.A man intending to mount his horse need not confine himself to the regular riding master's manner of doing the same thing; 1 it would pass unnoticed : but the taking his rains in driving is quite a different affair.

Oolongs, since last Deonibgl, haa been fifteen cents per pound; and Young Hyson Teas, of low and medium grades, have wxperienced hii advance of one hundred per oent. over la^t toasou's closing prices. "It will thus be seen that the strong and rapid advance in the tea market has been the result of n short supply and active demand ; but when it iscon sidered that we may hear at any moment of the en tire suspension of shipments at Shanghai, and. in tac>, that, as soon a* a sulhcienl force from England arrive* ?t the stat of war, all live ports of entry m China, will probably t?e placed under xtrici blockade, it would not l>e surprising to see Teas at a much higher figure than they haveyet attained."
