After baring pawed the summer in visiting the principal town* in Germany, the celebrated pianist, Litsz, arrived at Prague in October, 1&46. The day after he came, bis apartment was ?ntered by a stranger?ant>ld man. whose ny pearanee indicated misery and suffering. I <s great musician received him with a cordiality whi<*h he would not perhaps hare shown to a , nobleman. Encourgcd by his kindness, hia via- I itor said : 44 I come to you. sir. as a brother. Excuse me if I take this title, notwitstanding the distance that divides us; but formerly I could boast some ?kill in playing on the piano, and by giving in struction t gained a comfortable livelihood. | Now I am old, foeble, burdened with a large family, and destitute of pupils. I live at Nu remburg. but came to Prague to seek to recover the remnant of a small property which belonged to my ancestors. Although nominally success ful, the expense of a long litigation has more than swallowed up the trilling sum I recovered. To-morrow I set out for home?penniless. '? And you have come to me ' \ou have done well, and I thank you for this proof of your esteem To assist a brother protossor is to me more than a duty?it is a pleasure. Artists should have their purse in common; and if for tune n gleets some in order to treat others bet ter than they deserve, it only makes it more neccss.iry to preserve the equilibrira by fra ternal kindness. That's my system ; so don t speak of gratitude, for I feel that I only dis charge a aebt." As he uttered tho.*e generous words, Lists opened a drawer in his writing esse, and start ed when he saw that his usual depository f<>r his money contained but three ducats. lie summoned his servant. '? Where is the money ?" he asked " There, sir," replied the man, pointing to the open drawer. *? There! Why, there's scarcely anything!" *? I know it, sir. If you please to remember. I told you yesterday that the cuh waa nearly exhausted.-' 44 You see. Iby dear brother,'* said Listz, smiling, 44 that for the moment I ain no richer than you ; but that d >es not trouble mo ; I have credit, and I can make money start from the keys of my piano. However, as you are in haste to'leavo Prague and return home, you shall not be delayed by my present want of funds." So saying, he opened another drawer, and taking out a splendid medalion. gave it to tho old man. 4* There," said he, ?? that will do. It was a present made me by the Emperor of Aus tria; his own portrait set in diamonds. The painting is nothing remarkable, but tho stones are line. Take them and dispose of them, and whatever they bring shall be yours." The old musician tried in vain to dccline so rich a gift. Listz would not hear of a refusal, and the poor man at length withdrew, invoking the choicest blessings of heaven on his gener ous benefactor. He then repaired to the shop of the principal Jeweler in the eity. in order to sell the diamonds. Seeing a miserably-dressed man anxious to dispose ot magnificent jewels, with whose volue he appeared unacquainted, the master of the shop very naturally sus pected his honesty; and while appearing to ex amine the diamonds with close attention, he whispered a few words in the ear of one of his assistants. The latter went out and speedily returned, accompanied by several solaiers of police, who arrested the unhappy artist, in spite of his protestations of innocence. '? You must first come to prison," they said, "afterwards you can give an explanation to the magistrate." Tho prisoner wrote a few lines to his bene factor, imploring his assistance. Listz has tened to the jeweller. 44 Sir," said he, "you have caused the arrest of an innocent man. Come with me immedi ately, and let us have him released. He is the lawful owner of the jewela in question, lor I gave them to hist. ' But, sir," wked the merchant, 44 who are 44 you " My name is Listz." 44 I don't know any rich man of that name." '? That may be; yet I am tolerably well known. '? Are you aware, sir, that these diamonds are worth six thousand florins; that ia to say, about five thousand guineas, or twelve theu eand francs ?" ?' So much the better for him on whom I have bestowed them." 44 But in order to make such a present you must be very wealthy." " My actual fortune consists of three ducats. " Theu you are a magician ?" '? By no means; and yet, by just moving my fingers. I can obtain as much money as I wish " You must bo a magician !" " If you choose, I'll disclose to you the magic I employ." Lists had seen a piano in the parlor behind the shop. He opened it and ran his fingers over the keys ; then, seized by sudden inspiration, he improvised uuo of those soul-touching sym phonies peculiar to himself. A a he sounded the first chords, a beautiful young girl entered the room. While the melody continued she remained speechless and immova ble; then, as the last note died away, she cried, with irresistible enthusiasm, '* Bravo, Listz ! 'tis wondrous!" 44 Dost thou know him, then, my daughter?" asked the jeweler. '? This is the first time I have had the pleas ure of seeing or hearing him." replied she; " but I know that none Listz,could draw such sounds from the piano." Expressed with grace and modesty, by a I young person of remarkable beauty, this ad miration could not fail to be more than flatter ing to the artist However, after making his best acknowledgments. Listz withdrew, inorder to deliver the prisoner, and was accompanied by the jeweler. Grieved at his mistake, the worthy merchant sought to repair it, by inviting the two musi cians to sapper The honors ot the tablo were done by his amiable daughter, who appeared no less touched at the generosity of Listz than astonished at bis talent. That night the musicians of tho city sere naded their illustrious brother. The next day the nobles and distinguished inhabitants ? >f Prague presented themselves at his door. They entreated him to give some concerts, leav ing it to himself to fix any sum he pleased as a remuneration. Then the jeweler per ceived that talent, even in a jiecuniary light, may be more valuable than tho most precious diamonds. Lists continued to go to his house, and, to the merchant s great joy, be perceived that his daughter was the cause of these visits. He began to love the company of the musician, and the fair girl, his only child, certainly did not hate it. One morning the jeweler, coming to the point with German frankness, said to Listz ; " How do you like my daughter?" 44 She is an <\ngel!" 4; What do you think of marriage ?" 441 think so well of it, that I have tho greatest possible inclination to try it." " What would you say to a fortune of three million francs ?" ** I woqM willingly acccpt it." " W ell, we understand eachother. My daugh ter pleases you. you please my daughter. Her fortune is ready; be my son-in-law." 44 With all my heart. ' The marriage waj celebrated the following week And this, according to tho chronicles of I rague, is a true account of the marriage of the great and gt?od pianist. Listz.

One morning a traveling phrenologist arrived at a hotel in Erie and took lodgings. The next day. in the village newspaper appeared an ad vertisement atating that Prof. B had arrived in Erie. Pa., and would make, for a "compen sation," examination of the heads of eitisens, and accompany the same with accurate and re liable oharts of charaoters. For two or three days the calls were scarce, but on the fifth there was a rush of five or six to the apartments of the Professor. One morning a countryman entered the inn were the phrenologist had his rooms, and said to the landlord : " Is this the place where the phrenologist 4 holds out,' who can tell a man's character by the bumps on bis skull ?" " Yes.'' replied Boniface, with a reserved and dignified air. 4? Wal. I want ray potato-trap looked Into a little. Where's the man?" '? I am the man!" said the landlord. "Oh, you be, eh? Wal, put in, feel o' my bumps, and gin us a map. What's the swin dle >W " There is no swindle, sir. Phrenology is a science, sir." "Oh. yes?expect so; but what's the price for feelin' a feller s head?" 41 One dollar, with a chart." " Wal, go it; what do I du ??lie down or sit up ? Docs it hurt ?" " Not in the least, my dear sir. Take your scat in this chair." There were four or five morning loungers in the tavern, who chocked a laugh as the country man took his seat, having first, as requested, re moved his coat, vest and neck-eloth. The wag of a landlord run his hands through the hair of the patient a moment, and then turning to the barkeeper, said : 44 Mr Flipkins, take a sheet of paper and draw four lines down its whole length, ami put my figures under the head I mention to you." It was done. 14 Have you got it?" " Yes, all right." " Yery well." And the landlord went on with his examina tion, which was rougher perhaps than there was any necessity for. 4- Put down Philoprogenitiveness, sixty.11 ?? Down, sir." Very well; Reverence, two." " Booked. sir." " Combativeness. two hundred " 4i What's that'" said the victim. 44 No matter, sir; you'll see itoa the chart. ' " Caution, ont." " Credulity, four hundred." " What's the last bump'" asked the patieut. " Never mind now. you'll understand it by and-by. And now. (to the bar-keeper,) Mr. Flipkins. you've put these in separate columns, as usual ? ' Ysir.'' " Yery well?add 'cm up." 44 Aid era u-u-p-p!" exclaimed the phrenolo gical subject. " Is this the way you do?" ?4 Of c-o-u-r-s-e ! how else could we get your balance of mind?of intellect ?" 44 Wal, go ahead." 44 How does it Duboll. Mr. Flipkins?" 44 The three columns are equal?they foot up precisely the same!" The landlord looked solemnly and sympathiz ingly towards his subject. '? It is strange," said he, " but it is so. Phre nology never lies. \ou have no predominant character, sir; you havo no intellectual status; you don't know anything, sir. Excuse me, sir, but I must state the truth, whether you take the chart or not? but if there is any truth in phrenology, vou are a fool! Under the circuni stances, sir, 1 can scarcely expect you to keep the chart you have oontracted for! that is a mat ter of email consequence, as it will be a valua ble illustration of a unique species, which I can use in all my lectures hereafter. I authenticate all my lecturcs, sir, with real names and res idents. The charge of deception in science, is one which was nevor brought against me, and never will be, sir?never." "Oh, never mind; give ua the map," said the subject; 44 here s the swindle, for I'd rather pay it than have you goingaround the country mak ing a fool of me everywhere else as you havo here- you blasted* philogeuitivo humbug you !' With this explosion, the subject retired. A Romaxtic Attorjev at tiik Jail.?A young and romantic attorney visited the coun tv jail a dry or two ago. and while there saw in the female department a very fair and inno cent looking girl, llis better feelings were en listed, andoy pity aud vague sense of admira tion and affection he whs drawn to her immedi ately. He felt there must be some great error in her confinement among the most depraved beings ; some chain of circumstance which she coulu not break had bound her to alluring vice. She must be guiltless ?she must have an un spoken secret that would make her history all clear and spotless. Like a liiy in the dark mo rass she seemed, and the while petals could not have drooped upon the mire of sin. So thinking, all the tenderness, gallantry, ro mance and poetry of his nature was aroused, and waiting until she stood alone peering through the bars with her soft violet eyes, he approached, and spoke of her cruel fate, her in nocenco, her beauty, his sympathy, his faith, his high regard. She listened, and her blue eyes opened wider and wider with mute astonishment, and the roses of her mouth unclosed to the sun of his sympathy, but no bright bird of speech flew forth from their erimson sweotness. The youth continued in his Sidneyan strain ; he saw she was moved ; he beheld her little emo tions in her heaving breast and in her moist ened gase. '? What can I do ? I pity and would aid your It is in my power to benefit you, my poor girl. Do not look so amated and startled ' Do not hes itate, but tell me?I am a friend upon whom you may rely ?" The blue eyes gleamed, and from the Cupid moulded mouth came forth these words :? Well, stop that ere talkin' then, and give us a chaw of tobakker!" The disciple of Blackstone did not believe his senses at first, and stood confounded ; but slow ly reflection shone and rose full upon his mental sky. and the beautiful twilight of sen'iment fell suddenly away. lie turned and left that noisome place, and hit* imagination will not soon impose upon him a dissolute, but fine eomplexioned nymph for a suffering and sorrowing saint.?Ctnctn. Gaz. A Yisit to MAnsiiriKUt.?A party of ladies and gentlemen visited Marshfield a few days since to view the mansion and ground of the late Daniel Webster. They were received in the kindest manner by the lady of the house, whose cheerful countenance and friendly smiles alone were more than a sufficient recompense for the long and tedious ride over the dusty roads which lead to the home of the "Great Impounder." Every attention was shown to the visitors by the members of the family, and an hour was pleasantly passed in surveying the diffvreiit apartments, and gating upon the many portraits of distinguished individuals which adorn the walls. Great care and attention have been bestowed upon the premises by the present oocupant, and everything about the es tate bears marks of the good taste displayed in laying out the grounds. A great many persons daily visit this place, sacred to the heart of every American, and many come from great distances to pour forth their devotion at this shrine of patriotism^ All are hospitably re ceived. and permitted to takeairae range of the extensive estate. A servant is in readiness to conduct strangers through the house. By the regulations of the mansiou, and for the better preservation of the premises, a small fee (25 cents per head) must be paid by each visitor. The book for the names or the visitors contains the signatures of persons from every part of the country, and from foreign lands. It is stated, that in one month, last summer, 2,000 persons visited the home and resting place of Wobster.? Bottom Pott. FOE BENT AJSTD SALE. FAR?)ck p,ece of fin?
