A CONVERSATION, AND WHAT C AME OF IT. BT CLARA STDSHT. "Why. in the name of all that's curious. May Lenton. hare you never cot married?'' This question wai asked by a gentleman some thirty-five or six year* of age. wno had been for nearly twenty minute* closely watching the motion* of a lady who sat near him at a work table The gentleman was a fine, noble-looking man, with frank, well-formed features and pleasant expression. lie was handsomely dressed, and, to judge by the looks of his hair, you might hare laid that he had a wife, had he looked in respects like a married man?which he did not. The room in which the two were sitting beto kened wealth and taste. Its occupants were evidently in the upper ranks of lifo. The lady addressed was a person of fair. in teresting face and graceful form. She certainly diJ look remarkably well. a? she bent her h?ad With if.* abuudant and shining hair and plied her white hands in the task which employed Iter sight and apparently her whole thought*. i'robably a conviction of her attractiveness ?nd worth had caused the question which her ? ?mpanion put in such a hearty, abrupt tone, that May started aud dropped the red worsted work upon which she had r>een intent. - What a question." she cried, with a light laugh?"just as if I cared about being mar ried!" - Why should you not carc. May* Surely it is the beat and happiest state tor man or "wo man."' ?? Granted with a proviso/ paid May; '"but, Mr. Rossiter. if you think so, why huvo you never married' " lou are a true \ ankee. May. and answer a question by askiug another; but tell me. now, why you are. at thirty years of age, still single?" " How dare you say I am thirty years old? I i>on my word, if you wer<* not brother to my sister-in-law, I'd not speak to you again for a week. May pretended to jmut; and tho pout was quite becoming to her full arched lips. " U'dn t you yourself tell me your age, and only the day before yesterday ' Your memory seems rery abort. Miss Ronton" ?Well, I didn't expeet you was going to throw it up to me that I was nn old maid, to pay me tor my confidence in you.'' '?Oh' May?did I say that'?and if I did T'>u can break iny -glass house' by tlinging back my very taunt. Iiut. come now, do an swer my question." ;- I never could get any one to have me," said May. shortly. - Are you satisfied ?" No. 1 on need not tell me that a person so interesting and attractive as you are has never had ardent lovers. I know better, May?-o tell me truly why you arc not Mrs. SomelV>dv now ? . J May suddenly sobered down and said, nerv ously??? It ? because no man vhu*e lave I could return ever loved me." And she resumed her work. How her face had altered. There had come o\er it a stern, hard expression, as if she wero eaying. inly? " It matters not?I can wrestle down the?? yearnings for some thing worthy and noble, and true and strong, against which to lean; for *"rnethtiig wianing, and tender, and loving, which to love If there is no heart on earth wh .se best love is the love I want I can do without it?I can walk to the end of life as I have walked thus far." K .esiter regarded her in long silence. lie had known her for many years, and had often * -n.iered at her great indifference to the atten tions of gentlemen. He had even, en more than one occasion, taken her to ta*k for her Xnanner toward* them. ^ ou won t allow them to become acquainted wit you at all, he said. " When you are in troduced to a man. that's the last of it. All the young men admire, but they are afraid of yau. lou chill them to death I heard one inan say that he thought you a beautful and interesting creature; but then ho would as won undert ike to warm into love an ir*L*re as }jurse.t even if he had eouravt enough to luake the attempt." A skeptical smile had been the only answer to such remarks. How could May believe that aho waa capable of mini ring affection in othera when those who knew her beat were so lightly touched by it. itoasiter had been for throe or four years ab sent. and had nowly returned when the above conversation ti?ok place. Ho waa a comfortable old bachelor, happy in disposition; happy in poMesain* an independent fortune : and har.nv in his Hater s home?not to say happy in the companionship o 1 May. whom he honestly be KT1 to ^ and mu,t lovely girl in tne world. Ha had once dearly loved and suddenly l??st a fair, promised bride; and never since had he allowed himself to think of loving And. beaide*, he didn't know ae he wished U, m*rry. He was well satified with his -state aud condition ?wheu be was at home; to be sure he did teel uneasy and dissatisfied all the TSS* waJ.abrua,{ .

And he led the embarrassed and blushing May into the presence of his sister, and admit ted her to the great rejoicing; and. in a few weeks from that day. Ilossiter and May were no more twain, but one flesh. Nobody knows what a month may bring forth?nor to what the simplest question may lead one.?N. Y.Ledger. General Har*kt\?In personal appearance General Harney is impressive. He is considera bly orer six fret tall, and is large-boned and muscular. Hid hair was red. but is now thickly mixed with white. He wears it short, and begins to be bald on the crown of his head. His moustaches and beard are nearly white, and are also thick and chipped short. His eyes are blue, and dull, for he uses spectacles, "in younger years, he must have been a model of physical vigor and strength; but he now looks older than he really is. tor his age, I believe, does not excced fifty-five. While in St. Louis. I heard an anecdote illustrative of his charac ter. which I have never seen in print. Ueing in New York many years ago, he passed a store in one of the principal streets in which au auctioneer was soliciting bids for an engraving of General Jackson. I3oth seller and the crowd wero no political frends of the subject of tho Cicture. and were ridiculing it in every possi le manner. "How much am I offered for the Hero of New Orleans ?" cried the man on the stand. "Haifa cent?'? "Only half a cent ? Why. he's worth a cent, surely, nfter robbing the Bank. Make it a cent, won't you gentlemen ? Now. then, how much am I offered "One'hundred dollars," said a voice em phatically. a.s Col. Harney entered the door; '' one huudrod dollars, sir,"' he repeated. mak ing his way through thocrowd, halt'a head taller than any other man in the room. The auctioneer, naturally astonished, in quired if the gentleman was in earnest, and started again on his witticisms. "Sir, I am in earnest, and I claim my bid.*' interrupted the Colonel, "and if no one bids more. I cla m the picture.'* No one bidding more, he handed the auction eer the money and his address. "And now. sir. he remarked, seizing him bv the collar, ind dragging him to the floor, "I claim the privilege of applying the bu&tinado to your wdy fordamnableimpcrtincnce." And having :an*d him to his satisfaction, no one iu the crowd kenturing to interfere, he strode out of the store ind continued his walk down the street. Analyze tho quality of character necessary to a man to be the actor in such a scene, and I think you will discover tho traits which military men consider to fit Gen. Harney eminently as the lender of this I'tah expedi tion. h.Ncoi RAr.isu I i.nkss ?John Phoenix, ?the phunny," contributes to the Knickvr Jocker Magazine the following, which he says, >esides its rare merit as an actual occurrence, ronveya a useful lesson to mothers: "Small Joe L? was playing one morning in i yard at the rear of his residence, when essay ng to c.wt a stone high in air. ho found he had niscalculated his strength, or th? weight of the ihme, as that missile slipped irom his fingers, ind. taking an entirely different direc tion from hat intended, wont whack tli^L>ugh a pane of jlass in the neighbor's window. rs.

Urs L? assumed n diguified air; the culprit vascalledto their presence.' and the inquest on he departed pane commenced "Joseph." said Mrs L?. with awful solem lity.-did you break the glass in Mrs. Con lolly s window " Yes'm," replied Joe with promptitude. " Joaeph."' said Mrs L?, " if you broke that mne of glass, I shall certainly correct you. Did you break it, sir '-' Joe hesitated; but conscicnco wa? powerful, ind he replied that he did. Mrs. L? took a stick from tho inantlepiecc ? Joseph," said she. ?? if yuu broke that glass I 'hall correct you most severely. I ask aeain. lid you break it Joe looked at his mother; he looked at tho itiek; and, hanging hia head, he murmured. 'No ma'am." "Jhere' said Mrs. L?. triumphantly, ' that boy never told mo a lio in hie life. I mowed be never broke no window. 'Spect pour little Guster broke it; she hove a stono dear over our fence vestorday."'

Iu such cases it is not speed but ?trenglh that wins the race. There was an eminent instanc e of this at Don -aster, in l*-3>, when the Great sH l<euer stakes were ran for One of the horses, called Binning Uain, by Filho de Puta (a remarkably strong horse.) was entered to run, but with so little hance of success, that the night before the race Mr. Beards wo: th. his owner, had determined to withdraw him Hut it rained heavily,and Beards worth allowed hi* horse to start.
