A great many years since, when b^ght-eyed find fair-haired lasses were not so P1*011^1 J" New Enxland as they are now, there awelt the town of P . * pr**lJ vlllNe' 5?' some twenty-fire miles from the j**"' J peculiarly ugly and eross-gralned, bat wealthy ^Minnie was Dnnforth'a only child, and report said truly that she would be his sole legatee. The oM man was a sturdy farmer, and was esti mated to bo worth full ten thousand dollars; at that period a Tery handsome fortune, to be sure. The winning manners and sparkling eyes of Mir.nie Danforth had stirred up the finer feel ings of the whole male portion of the Tillage, and her father was peculiar and none succeed ed in making headway with him or her In the meantime. Minnie had a true and loyal lover in secret: Who would hare sunposed lor one moment that such a fellow would dare look on beauty and refinement His name was Walker, or. as he was generally called. Joe Walker, and was simply a farmer, employed by old Danforth who had intrusted Joe with the management of his place two or three years. Bat a verv excellent farmer and a right good manager was this Joseph Walker. He was a young man-only twenty-three and actually fell in lore with this beautiful, pleasant, joyous, Minnie Danforth. his employers daughter. But the strangest part of the occurrence was that Minnie returned his love earnestly, truly and frankly, and promised to wed hita at a fa vorable time. . . ,, Thinsf went on merrily for a time, but old I)anf<?rth discovered certain glances and atten tions between them which excited his envy and suspicions. Very soon afterwards, Joe learn ed the old man's mind directly in regard to | his future disposal of Minnie; and ho quiokly aww his case a hopeless one, unless he resorted to a stratagem. 8J he set his wits at once to work. By an agreement, an apparently settled dislike and coldness was observed between the two lovers towards each other for five or six months ; and the fathor saw. as he believed, with satisfaction, that his previous fears had been premature. _ Then by agreement also botweon them Joe absented* himself from home every evening night after night; for full three months lonrer did Joe disappear as soon as his work was fin ished, to return at late bed time. This was unaaual and old Danforth determined to find out the cause of it. ... , . Joe frankly confessed that he was in love with a man's daughter who resided less than three miles distant, but. after a faithful attach ment of several months, the old man utterly re fused his applietion for the young girl's hand. This was capital?jnst what the old man de aired. This satisfied him that he had made a mistake in regard to his own child; and he would help Joe to get Married, and thus atop all further trouble or suspicions at home bo he aaid: " Do you like her ? ' 44 Yes, air?yes'' 44 Then marry her." 41 But I can't ; her father objects? } 4'Poh! let him do so; what need you carer Run away with her!" 44 Elope ?" ' ?? Yes! 02" with her at once. If the gal will join you. all right, marry her: bring her here ; you "shall have the cottage at the foot of the Lill; I'll furnish it for you ; wage* shall be in creaped ; and the old man may like it or not." 4'Bnt?'* 41 But no buts, Joe. Do as I bid you?go about it at once, and?" 4* You will stand by me?" 4- Yes, to the last. I know you, Joe ; you're a good fellow and a good workman, and will iunke any body a good son or husband.'" "The old fellow will be so mad. though. 44 Who cares? Go, now, quiokly but quiet ly." . *? To-morrow night, then," said Joe. 44 Yes. " 44 I'll hire Clover's horse." 44 No you shan't." 4 Why not '" 4* Take my horse?the best one, young Mor gan ; he'll take you off in fine stylo iu the new phaeton.'" 44 The old gentleman will be astonished. 44 Never mind ; go on. We'll turn the laugh on him I'll take care of your wife at any rate.'' 44 I'll do it," said Joe. 44 You shall," said Danforth; and they parted in good spirits. An hour after dark, on the following evening Joe made his appearance, dressed in a new black suit, and really looked very comely. The old man hustled out to the barn >rith him. helping to harness young Morgan to his new phaeton. A few ro*Is from the house he found Minnie, H3 by previous arrangement, and repaired to the village; the parson very quiokly made them one in holy wedlock. Joe took his bride an I *ion dashed back to the town of 1' ? and halted at old Danforth'a door who was really locking for him with open arm?. " I $ it done ' ' cried the old gentleman. 44Yes!" answered Joe. '? Bring her in," continued the old fellow in high glee. '? never mind compliments hfre; and the honest farmer rushed away for lights, and returned almost immediately. 44 Here's the certificate, sir, ' said Joe. 44 Yes. yes " 4' And this is my wife '"'he added as he pass ed to his beautiful bride, the bewitching and lovelv Minnie Danforth. 44 What'" roared tho old file, 4lwhat did you say ' Joe?you villain, you scamp, you auda eioua cheat, you?you " 44 It is true, sir, we are lawfully married; you advised me in this course; you assisted me; you planned the whole affair; you lent me a horse , you thought me, last night, worthy of any man a child; you encouraged me, you of fered me the cottage at the toot of the hill, you I didn't, I deny it. You can't prove it; you're a?a " 44 Calmly, now. sir." said Joe. And the en treaties of the happy couple wore at once united to quell tho old man's iro, and to |>ersuade him to acknowledge their union. He gave in reluctantly ; and the fair Minnie Danforth was overjoyed to be duly acknowl edged a* Mrs Joe Walker. The marriago proved a joyous one. and the original assert on of Danforth is truthful in every respect. Tne cunning lover was a good son and a faithful husband, and lived many years to enjoy tho happiness which followed upon his ruuaway match ; while the old man never cared to hear much about the details of the elope ment. for he uw how completely he had over fchit his mark.

Bushes and weeds may be funned by dividing the fine moss, to set out on the promontory ana at the roots of the trees. A stetn here and there will represent a blasted tree, and a faded loaf a hill in the distance. In the foreground taste may be exercised without limitation, fur the materials are richer than ever painter com manded.

Rocks, islands, aioun tains, and every picturesque element of * fine landscape, may be imitated by leaves of va rious shades; and with a few touches of blAck crayon to deepen the shadows iu the seams and crevices a beautiful picture may be pro duced, which, covered in glass, in an elegant traine, will boar the palm from the moat el&b orate oil painting. Some magnificent pieces of country sconery. with meadow and forest, hill and ravines, cottage and mansion house, lake and river, and other objects familiar in a view, have been finished in this manner with a per fection ot coloring unattainable by art. One great advantage of this kind of work is, that its materials cost nothing, while the most charming results may be obtained. And wlint a lovely employment for the delicate fingers of ladies who are longing in the rural districts for some new pastime . ?V hat interest is given bo a ramble in the woods! Not a dry leaf whistled past by the wind, not a bunch of spiral gra^s or cup-like moss crushcd by the fuot, but is looked upon us a rich contribution to tho artist's stock ! Surely tho buunties of Nature and Providonce are unimaginable in number! The tasuo for the beautiful will be cultivated, while a cheer tul and thankful spirit is encouraged, by such rural employments.?JVeie York Express. A NEGLECTED FIXE ART. All the world is awake to the imjiortanco of the crops. If tho weevil gets into the wheat; or there is too little rain for tho potato, or too much for the corn ; if tho fruit has been pinched by the frost or oaten by the worm, no matter in how limited a locality, we are all sure to bi?r of it. The markets sympathize with tho news. and tho commerce of the wholo world responds to the intelligence. Now, tho strange thine in all this is, that while the public feels so mueh concern about the produce of the soil, they give comparatively so little thought about the"use that is made uf it; in other words, use so little intelligence and skill in preparing it for con sumption. "(iod sends food,'' says the proverb, "but the Devil seads cooks." That is more true of this country than of almost any other. Our cooking, as a general thing, is committed to very incompetent hands. Little preparation or teaching is deemed necessary to qualifv a woman to prepare our dinners for us, and moat peoplo are obliged to content themselves with the very narrow range of dishes which, in the course uf time, such persons learn to make the least unpalatable. The result of employing and depending upon oooks bred in this way is, that four-fifths of the good things within the reach of even the poorest classes are wasted, becausc no one knows how to dress them. There is scarcely an animal dressed for the table, nor a vegetable takon from the garden, of which a large portion of its edible matter is not lost through ignoranco, and a good part of tho rest is halt spoiled from the same cause. We should scarcely be chargeable with overstating the case, if we were tu say that tho cooks o? this city throw away enough, from nut knuwinghow to use it, to feed the entire population. We have sometimes doubted whether a pretty sharp famine would not. on the whole, be a good thing for the United States; whether thecountry would not bo actually richor, instead of p K)rer. by a failure of the crops, which would teach ali classes to find out the uses and value of what is now thrown away, and to uso more prudoiitly what is now used most wastefully. It will re quire some Providential lesson like this to sup ply what this country needs now as mueh as anything else?a race of capable cooks. In this sense, the breadth and prodigious fruitfulness of our country is a calamity. We have no need to exhaust all the resources of our larder, food I of one sort or another i3 always so abundant. The consequence is, that, with everything plentiful, the Americans are a very badly fed people, and hence the universality of dyspepsia and consumption among u?. W o want schools for the training of cooks. <>ur large eating establishments ought to bo prepared to graduate a class of male and fe male cooks every half year, whose diplomas would be sufficient evidence of their compe tence. They could, in part, pay for their tui tion by their service, and partly in money. If the head cook of such hotels as the Astor House or the St. Nicholas would engraft a branch of instruction like this upon their culinary depart ments, his pupils would soon command large premiums. We want schools for cooks as much as for physicians?even more ; for j>eop!e want to eat every day. but they only want a doctor occasionally, and they would want one much less frequently if they were better fed?that is. it their food were better prepared, ilow often does it happen that the professing oooks of this metropolis know how to make good bread or to boil a potato or a cabbage' It is aa much as a j man s life is worth to travel through the inte rior and less frequented portions of our western apt are they at spoiling the produce of the soil in preparing it for the table, Tho more we look at this subject, the more extraordinary it seems that schools arc not opened for giving systematic instruction in this really fine art. In three months, a man or wo man .f fair intelligence could be taught more of the art of preparing the gifts of Providence for the nutriment of man. than is possessed by ninety-nine hundredths of the most experienced of our American cooks.

A CiwFnwDiR Plot i* Philadelphia.?On Tuesday afternoon Mr. William Kvans, inventor of a machine for the manufacture of cigars. labor ing und^-r the idea that his partner* were defraud ' in*him, purchased, at some place unknown, a | haif-gallon jug of powder, with the express de termination of blowing up the establish me at,and destroying the live* of those whom he imagined had sedulously endeavored to injure him. At two o'clock, with his jug tied around his neck, he went into room No of the Exchange, on the second floor, and before the object of his visit was comprehended, he placed a lighted cigar in the mouth of the Jug Providentially, the powder did not ignite, there Wing too great a quantity of ashes on the cigar i There ware several gentlemen in the rooin at this time, and thelrconstemation was great whentliey saw the evidence of the purpose uppermost in the mind of Mr. Kvans. They took prompt advant age of this failure, and immediately seized the jug, which was filled to Its utmost capacity with powder, and took it forcibly from hiin.
