One* ia a while there uiaj be a household war." when the fault is nil on one side, but this is not generally the case If all the wars of thi*lescriptioncould be thoroughly sifted down, it would he fonnd that the whole trouble has resulted from some slight cause to begin with though this might not always be the case. It is amusing. as well as mortifying, to observe how sympathy can sway the public mind in re gard to such matters, and how ready people are to denounce this one or that one, according as mere sympathy or prejudice may dictate. Among my early friend was a Ned Cruden. He was a steady, industrious, noble-hearted fellow, and one of tho most faithful and true friends. Among our school mates was a girl named Abby Bieknell. She a kind playmate, a warm-hearted companion, and o zood-natured, loring. accommodating friond. When she grew up she became Ned Cruden's wife, and the newly married couple moved away. Some years passed, and we that had been srbnol-mates in youth, had become separated, and amid new scenes and new associations the friends of earlier years were gradually parsing from memory, when one spring, business called me to the village of L , in Vermont. I had been there some days, and was entering a store one afternoon, when I met a man coming out whose countenance was familiar, lie passed on without noticing me. and I went into the store. For some time my mind was busy trying to recall the face I had just seon. but ere I could solve the question, my attention was called to a conversation which was going on among a number of mon who sat on some boxes and barrels in one corner of the store. ?? I know anybody wouldn't susj>ect such a thing to look at him," said a dried up man who was sm-king c pipe, " but it's a fact. I had it frjin his door neighbor. Ho actually kicked his wife out of the house only three duys ago. ' ?0, they live drefful onhappv,*' chimed in a tall gawkyish looking fellow, who reminded me of an old cider barrel 4*Ned beats her and kick? her the worst kind. ?>neday when I was there to work?ye 3ec wo'd just gono in to din ner?I seed Ned take her by the nap of the reck an' chuck her into the little bed-room By mitey. be was savage,'d better be lieve." " Well, I guess his wife ain t ono of the best women as ever was.'' remarked the third speaker '? <iee-whittaker! I reckon she ain"t," ex claimed a youthful smoker. " My eves shouldn't I like to have the handling of that woman about a month !" And wh?t would ye do?' asked the first speaker, rather dubiously. ? Do' Why, I d trim her down I d lam her manners.'' I reckon sho'd larn you manners, or els<# take the hair out of yer head," observed an r ?' Why. I tell ye she's a perfect satan ?a real sbe-deril?when she gets a goinV I stood and listeaed to the conversation, and ere long I made out that they were talking aoou,, Nea Cruden, and then I knew that it must have been Ned whom I met in the door v*T j 7?" Vur?d. from what I heard, that >ej and his wife lived unhappily together, and the tmng surprised me not a little. If Ned Cruden and Aoby Bieknell make an unhappy match then what sort of people must be re quired for a happy one, I thought to mvself. i knew that Ned was a proud-spirited, inde "^eot fellow. but then what po-sible quality f !u'd Abbj have that should como in contact With this ? I could think of nothing. In short I began to diacredit tho truth of what I had heard On the very next day I found where Ned lived, and called upon him. I found him in his barn, aud he was glad to see me, and after awhile his joy increased beyond all thought of care and trouble. ?? And bow is Abby ?" I asked, after we had conversed on other topics. His countenance fell in a moment, but I could see that he was struggling to hide his real feelings from me. 4 c'A.^c g ho replied at length ** She 11 be glad to aee you." In a little while we wont to the bouse, and when 1 saw Abby, I waa at first struck with the woDdrous change that had been wrought in her countenance. She had grown older, to be sure, but then she looked twenty years older than when I had la*t seen her before. It required bu; a single glance for me to see that there was 'iirn',ul'y s'>tnewhere At length, however, after AN>y had got warmed up. she was as kind and genial as of old, and her eyes sparkled with the wine old fire It was now in the forenoon, and they would not listen to my going away that day Abby fcMured me that tbey had room for true friends, declared that I should not escape her so ?*?ly as to come and go on the same day. I no particular business to call me away. ? 43 8"on ^ I was assured that I should ?av# a pleasant visit, I agreed to atop The afternoon I spent with Ned along tho trout J'u'* r evening we spent at homo. tk??

That was the *ft*r o?e ln 0Br catalogue of troubles, for * ?a u?aro yonB T,ere 00 we had wme talk, I The whole truth flashed upon me now. " Who were those men that workod for vou that day ?" I asked He named them and I recognised three of them as men whom I had seen in tho store "Ism it all, Nad." "And don't you think she is to blame?" ?? Why?you'll pardon me, I know?but I think you wye the first deep cause of trouble. 1 know Abby s taste, and I know that tobacco atnoke is disgusting to her. Why, Ned, as sure as I am alive. I could not live in a house which smelled so strong of tobacco smoke as yours does. Even last iught I had to open my window and sit by it half an hour to get a little sweet air. I have been blamed by my friends several times because I would not allow them to smoke in my house. The smoke of a pipe is a sure sickness to ,ny wife and I will not allow it. Now think of it. Think of your wife?with a uelicato frame, a more sensitive organization than yours?doming into her kitchen and find ing four great, dirty men, puffing out clouds of nasty, filthy smoke, each whiff of which is enough to sicken her and mAke her head ache. And more, too; sho knows that you are aware of her wishes, for she hu laid them to yoa a bund rod time. When you are gone, she sees the pines laying upon her shelf. With an aching head and sickening soul *he looks at them, and knows that she must pass through the ordeal again and j"- herself?she is but a passion and disgust wrought up by passion and tobacco -moke and sho takes the filthy abomination and breaks ft at once. Now, tell me truly. Nod isn t this the result of your pipe?" He looked down upon the barn floor, but cave no amnrer. - " I know it is," I resumed, "and I know that if you would drep it you would restore peace." " Stop, stop," he cried. 44 I can't givo up my pipe just to suit a womiin's whim. I won t bo tied down in that way." Then why not smoke out of doors?" " Suppose it rains ? And then what shall I do in winter ?" , " Why* if you must smoke in winter, let your ' tobacco ginoke go where you make all your other smoke go. Stick your head into tho fireplace 1 and ?m<>kc up the chimney." Ned fairly smiled " I'm in earnest," I added; "for I can as- < ?ure you your pipe smoke is aj offensive to your wife as the smoke of burning wood is to you. 1 But I ask you candidly?how can you expect Abby to be happy when she is continually an- ! noyed by a nuisance which is absolutely sick- i ening to her, and that, too, when it could be i all remedied simply by your taking your pipe out of doors or into tho woodhouse ' And cer tainly you cannot expect a person to be pleas- i ant whun they are continually unhappy. Now mark me. Ned, I don't mean to say that you are alone in the wrong, but I ask you?Do you ! love Abby well enough to forego a little comfort of an evil habit for her real good ?" Ned hesitated. He twico made up his mouth to speak before he made out. I " I" a P?pe offensive to your wife ?" he asked , "Not only offensive, but it is absolutely in- ] junous. She cannot l>e in a room where an old pipe is being smoked five minutes without a ' hoadache. i used to smoke, but at length be came so digusted with the stench which per vaded my house, and moreover I found that my wife was so opposed to it, that I gave it up Her mere fussing about the smoke would never have moved me had I not been assured that she was really annoyed by it. And surely, I thought, if my wifo must *tay in the house ' nearly all tho time, and if her placo of duty 1 must be there confined. I will not, to gratify a ' mere whim, make her suffer. I used, after that, 1 to smoke out of doora, bat it w? not nlwnys convenient, and I gradually gave it up." j Just at this moment one of the neighbors 1 came in, and our conversation stopped. I remained to dinner, and promised to call on them again before I left town. I I did so at tho expiration of a week. I then ] walked out to Ned's place, and got there just after dinner, and I found him on the chonpinjr block, smoking. " 11a ! Ned, ' I uttered, " havo you moved your pipe?" " Don't ?ay a word," ho replied, while a dewv moisture gathered in hiseyei. "I haven't smoked in tho house sinco." " And Abby ?" I said. 441 told her that very night that if she'd never speak a crow word to mo again. I would nevor allow anothor pine to be smoked in our house." " And what did she say ?" "She looked me in the face a moment?I smiled?and then ahe burst out a crying. Sho hung around my neck?told me she d dono wrong?'begged me to forgive her?and?and? wc bad a regular sceno. By the powers ! she's improved alreadv." " I should think she improved at once." said I. "Oh ! I mean in health and looks. She hasn't had a headacho since." W hen I went in I found Abby singing as merrily as a lark, When sho saw me. she dropped her towel and started towards me. She did not speak one word touching the joyful turn affairs had taken beneath her roof; but I knew what that quick, warm grasp meant, and I could read the language oi that glistening tear. I went away shortly after that, and in three years fVom that time I visited L again. My first call this time was upon Ned Crudeu. and again I found him in his barn. Never moved a friend to greet me more quickly. "Ah," I said, as I took his hand, "then you ve given up the pipe altogether." 44 Who told you ?" ne asked. 44 Vou did,' 1 replied. *' Me?I told you ?" 41 Yes. with your breath. It doesn't smell as it did before. 44 What?and was it so bad Ned asked 41 To tell you the truth, Ned, it was; for if there is anything that can make a repulsive mouth, it is an old, black tobacco pipe." 44 Then Abby told the truth. Ilut I've done with it now. Haven't touched a pipe for two years." " And don't you feci better?" " Don't I * I'd like to see the man thatcould hire me to go at it again." We went up to the house, and the first look told the story. The room was clean and sweet, the walls white, and the hearth was free from the filth of tobacco spit. And Abbv?ah, she was Abby once more?Abby of old?nappy and jjyous, and true as steel. And as 1 sat and gazed upon the happy couple, I pondered upon that strange element in human nature whicir%ill make misery and discord more and more, rather than bow one dugree to simple reason. But the good datne's merry voice soon dispelled my deep thought, and 1 wad eonteut to know that in that home, at least, the demon of discord had been exer cised by a very little spirit of reason.?Flag of our Union.

In referring to the receipts of Teas in this country for one Sear up to3"th ultimo, it sa)s they will tio Hymn pounds short or the imports of the year end ing June30, lftofi, and that "The advance in black teas. Oolongs, mime last feoeinber, has l>cen fifteen cents per pound; and oung Hyson Teas, of low and medium grades, have experienced an advance of one hundred per ocnt. over last season's closing prices. "It will thus be seen that tho strong and rapid advance in the tea market has been the result oft. short-supply and aotive demand ; but when it is con sidered that we may hear at any moment of the en tire suspension oi shipments at Shanghai, and. in (act, that, as soon as a sufficient force from England arrives at the seat of war, all live ports of entry in China, will probably lie placed under strict blockade, it would not l>e surprising to see Teas at a muoh higher figure than they have yet attained."
