THE MISER OF MARSEILLE. [COSCLinED.] The goe<ipe who had aforetime* interested themselves so liberally in the affairs of Jaequo* and Madeline, once more twitted Madame Gnyot, saying. it plainly wu not love that mailt) her a?n auch a miser in his habits: bat the anawerod them more proudly than ever, that Jacques would now look higher for a wife. So, firat one great lady and then another was aaid to be the fair object for whom onr hero cherished a secret passion, and whom be was trying to equal in wealth. But though Madame tluyot fostered the i lea. sho. poor soul, knew better; for only a few days after the marriage of hi* uaOUR, Jacques had begged her in a broken vofl^. to find out whether the little ves sel in which Madeline bid borne the precious draught of water to his bedside. a dozen long years ago. were still in ex'stence 44 O. my son. ' said Madame Ouyot, 1 since you did so love Madeline, why did you let her go * She would not now l>e the wife of a stran g?r. if you had asked her for thyself/' ?? Better as it ia. mother," replied Jacques, though his lip quivered while be ppoke. nnd again togged hi* mother to f>rocure what he had mentioned, at f.ny cost. Madame (iuyot's mission proved successful, though the mother of Madelino marvelled greatly at the request; and both the worthy matrons agreed that the conduct of Jacques was a problem beyond their pjwer to solve. Eager ly was the little vessel seized by hitn. and atier bestowing many grateful thanksonhis mother, he conveyed it to his own little room. Could the thing of clay have spoken, it might have told bow. when others slept, Jacques spent many an hour in sighs, ana even tears. Ay, for every drop of water it had once held, the strong man paid in tears a thousand fold. Tears sped on. and the father and mother of Jacques passed from the earth. The young nan had baea oalled a miser, even during their lifetime, but now. indeed, be merited the title. Ever craving for money, he added to his store by the strictest parsimony. His clothes w }>atched by himself, again and again, till .,??? ?L " ? ? 3 *",* J ?V WTICU IU IJ 13 by the xtrioteat parsimony. His clothes were patched bv himself, again and again, till no trace? of the original stuff romained. General ly hi# feet were bare, and cvon when he wore any covering on them, it consisted of old shoes that had b?en cast away as worthless, and picked up by him in his solitary wanderings turough the town. Histood was of the coarsest description, and taken simply to sustain life, lie no longer occupied the dwelling in which his early days had been spent; his present b >me was an old aud roomy h<use. built with a degree of strength which defied auy attempt at entrance, unsanctioned by the will of its occu pant, at least without a degree of force being u*ed. which must inevitably have led to dis covery. Here. then, dwelt Jacqucs Ouyot quite alone. But far worse than alone wad be when absent from his house, tor the evil repute in which he was held was such, that as he walked, the little children ran shouting after him: ?? There goes Ouyot. See the wrctched miser, how thin ha is ! He grudges himself food to make himself fat. and clothes to cover his lean old body Then the mischievous urchins would oast atones at Jacques, and load him with insults, unchecked by their parents. But even this was not the Worst. One day he met a friend, or at lea*t he had been so in youth, and whom ha had not seen for many long years. For the moment. Jacques forgot his rags and his isolation?it was so long since a kindly word Lai been bestowed on liim. and oh! how lie i T cat Bed to win it. Eagerly he advanced, with | au indescribable gleam of joy lighting his pinched feature*; but his former comrade shrank j back, holding up his hands, as if to forbid his nearer approach, saying, as he did *o: '? i will not bold comounion with a thing like you. Did you not love thy money better than "her who ought to be your wife ? but you suffered a stran gnr to carry her away, and now the accursed thing is dearer to you than yourself, though you have neither child nor kin to whom to "leave it. Away' touch me not!" Another trial came still later, and it was the hardest of all A portlv dame, elderly, bat still fresh and comely-looking, and with a fair daughter tv her side, passed leisurely along tne streets of Marseille They seemed to be new arrivals; bat the elder one was evidently no stranger, for sho pointed out to her daugh ter various changes which bad been made of late. Jacque Ouyot looked earnestly at the giri, for her features brought vividly to his iuiud those of the object of las one love-dream, and as he came near, he heard her mother call her Madeline. Another glance, and be recog nized the elder female as tht Madeline of his youth Though so many years had gone over his head, bis pale feoe was in a moment flushed. Again he forgot the curses and the stones daily showered around him; the vision of the bright eyed. with the little treasured pitcher in her hand, was Ufore him, and he too was for an in stant young; bai tor how brief an instant ' M ideline, even in her distant hoine. had heard of the miser Ouyoi, who heaped up wealth, though with none to share it. and denied even the smallest aid to the miserable, though sur rounded with gold. Even at that momeut, too, she heard the taunts of the passers-by; so, gathering her skirts closely around her. as tuough his very touch would poison, she swept by with such a look of acorn as rooted the miser to the spot, and brought back the sense vi his loneliness more terribly than ever. Though no inhabitant of Marseille ever en tered the miser's dwelling during his life, yet I am able to tell how bo spent his time there. I know he never entered his silent, comfortless home without feeling that his heart would leap with joy U> hear a friendly \oi;e, or if he might be permitted to clasp a child to his bosom. I know that, in spite of insults, reproaclics, and UanU. hi * heart teemed with loving-kindness to his fellow creatures, and often, when suffer ing from them, ho would even einilo, ami mur mur: "* It is because they know ine not; for one day these curse* will be turned into blessings. Ay, ani that, when seated on his hard bench, to take the food needful to prolong hi* life until the object should be accomplished, for which he had giveu up all that could tend to its enjoy ment. he prayed for a blessing on his coarse tar?, aud I know, too. that utter each more bitiug pr ?of ot scorn from thuie arouud him, he a.-ke<l from the same Almighty source strength to "? endure to the end." A very old man was Jacques Gnyot when tho end came, but he met it with joy and hope, for he then lived long enoagh to finish his se!f-im posed task. Stret> bed upon bis wretched pal let, he aiuiled and talked to himself. '? Ah, ./.deques." said he, "they will never more call tbee accursed. The last stone has been cast at thy worthless carcass for worthless it may well bo called, since even the worms will scarcely be able to banquet on the scauty covering of thy old bones iiut oh. what joy io think the miser has d it lived in vain' And thou, too." said be. taking in band Madeline s little pitcher.44 well hk'l thou perfortuel thy part. Though but a thing of clay, the sight of thee has reminded me ?*>-u day aud hour that, having given up her to whom thou didst once belong, no greater sacri ti ?? could be demauded fp?m me; and more than that it ever brought before me the memory of the one pressing waut which the resolution tJod has, in bis goodneas. given me strength to fulfil. , I will indulge just one weakuess, aud, having taken u?y last draught from thee, no other lip | suali W'uca tiieo " So saying, ha drank the w.tts>r it e >ntained. and gatheriug ell his re- j iua*uing strength, shivered it to aU>ui5 One h. 'ir alter, aud tho miser lay dead Only life Ics clay, senseless as that shivered by hi* last act, uow remained of Jacques Guyot. As auuu as b? was missed from his daily bauuU. the propriety of examiuiug his dwelling suggested itselt to the towus-pc-uple. for there were many who would not touch him while liv ing, who would gladly have acted as his execu tors Fancy, then, the crowd aroand the door: the forcible entrance; the curious ransacking each room, till they at last stood beside all that remained of the objcct of their bitter loathing. The authorities of the town, who led the way, took posswssiou ot' a sealed paper, which Jacques ere be laid dowu to die had placed in aconspic UJwi pgeiOoa It waa bis will, dolj exveu^d, and contained these words: " Having observed from raj youth that the p?orof Marseille are ill supplied with water, which can bo procured for them only at great cost, I have cheerfully la bored all my lite to gain tbem this greal blow ing. and I bequeath all I possess to be spent in building an aqueduct for their uso." Jacques had told the truth. The curses turned into ble*aings. and his death made a city full of self-reproaching mourners. Many a man hu won the name of hero by one gallant deed; but he who made*tbe conquest of a citj- by the con tinued heroism of a long life, methinks deserves the uame indeed. And thus I have told vou to whom the inhab tants of Marseille owe their aqueduct. A CAPITAL STORY. Some years since, an eccentric old genius wIk-iu for convenience sake call him Barnes, wus employed bj a farmer living in a town some six or seven miles westerly from the Penob scot river, to dig a well. The soil and substra tum being mostly sand, old Lames, after hav ing progressed downward al>out forty feet, found one morning upon going out early to work that the well ha-i essentially caved in and w:is full nearly to tho top. So having that desire, which men have, of knowing what will be said of them after they are dead, and no one 3-et ustir, ho concealed himself in a rank growth "t burdoeks by the side of a fence near the mouth of a well, having first left his hat and frock upon the windlass. At length breakfast being ready, a b?y was despatched to call him to his meal, when Io' and behold ! it whs that Karnes was buried in the grave unconsciously dug by his own hands, xho alarm being given, and the family assembled, it was decided first to eat breakfast and then tAsend for the coroner, the minister and his wife and children. Suchapa thy did not flatter Barnes' self esteem a bit but he waited patiently, determined to hear what was to be said and to see what was to be seen. Presently all parties arrived and began pros pecting the sceue of the catastrophe, as people usually do in such cases- A-. length they drew together to exchange opiuions as as to what should be done. The minister atonce gave it ns his opinion that they had better level up tho well and let Barnes remain; for snid he, '' he is beyond the temptation to sin. and in the day of judgment it will make no difference whether lie is huriei five feet under ground or fifty, for he is bound to come forth in either caso."' The coroner likewise agreed that " it would b<? a needless expense to his family or the town to dii-iutcr him when ho wassoeftoctually buried," and therefore entirely coincided with the minis ter. His wife thought that as he had left his hat and frock, it would be hardly worth while to dig him out for the re*t of his clothes; andsO it was settled to let him remain. But poor old Barnes, who had no breakfast and was not at all pleased with tho result of the inquest, laid qniet until the shades of evening stole over the landscape; then he quietly de camped to parts unknown. After remaining incognito for about three years one morning he suddenly appearod?hatloss and frockless as he went?at the door of the farmer for whom he had ageed to dig the unfortunate well. To say that an avalanche of questions wore rained upon his mysterious reappearance Ac., would convey but a feeble idea of tha excitement cre ated. But the old man bore it all quiotly, anil at length informed them that on finding himself buried he waited for them to dig him out, until his patience was exhausted, and set to work to dig niuiself out and only tho day before had smceeeded ' fbr. his ideas being confu?cd by the 1>r?ssure of the earth at the time he w:is buried, le had dug very much at random and instead of coming directly to the surface he uame eut in the town of Holden, sir milet ire it of Penali se *t river'. No further explanations were sought for by those who were s-> distressed and sorrowful over bis supposed final resting place.?lianqor Jef fersoman. Ax Iui-osTKB Smokkd Ot*t?The public have been pretty weil posted this season with regard to one James McDonald, who has been traveling from city to city, imposing upon the liberality of the public by proclaiming on every corner that be was 112 years of age, a soldier throughout the war of 1812, and a confirmed cripple and invalid from the wounds he received in the battle on our northern frontier. He was in this city about two months ago; from here he went to New York, where his story was taken by the reporters, as the framo work for several sensation articles. The next we heard of him lie had arrived iu Boston, and there again bis story Has given to the public by the press, and, no doubt much sympathy was enlisted. While he was in New \ork we took occasion to say that he was an ira}>o*tcr; and the other even ing he was compelled t> own up. lit* travels had brought him around in this direction again, and two or three evenings since he came down from Troy in the same coach with officer Clinton. Of cwurse he told the same old story to the passengers, and tken pro ceeded to pass round his dilapidated tile, wiiich appeal was al*out being responded to readily, when the officer threatened to arrest him if he did not cease his imposition, and under fear that this threat would be executed he admitted that he was but 07 years of age. and slunk back into one corner of the stage. Among other things that lie told the passengers was. that he had lost a leg in battle, and that a cork leg had been substituted. To satisfy them that this was false, the officer with a whalebone cane, struck tho leg indicated as of cork, several smart taps, making him wincc; until he was compelled to admit that it was a flesh and bone liiub. He promised to pass directly through Albany.?Alfuiny Argus. Simvkrim New Ejglaso.?Kufus Choate, in one of his speeches, introduced tho following unique picture of a New Kugland summer, to illustrate the idea that irregularity is not ruin : "Take tho New England climate in summer; you would thiuk the world was coining to an end. Certain recent heresies on that subject may have had a natural origin there. Cold t?-day; h ?t to morrow ; mercury at 8t> deg in the morn ing. with wind at the southwest: and in three hours more a sea turn, wind at east, a thick fog from the very bottom of the ocean, and a fall of 40deg. of Fahrenheit; now so dry as to kill all the beans inN?w Hampshire; then floodscarry iug off the bridges of the Penobscot and Connec ticut; snow in Portsmouth in July, and the next day a man and a yoke of oxen killed by lightning in Khode Island. You would think the world was twenty times coming to an end ! But I don't know how it is?we go along ; the early and the latter rain falls, each in its season ; seed time and harvest do notfail; the sixty days of hot, corn weather are pretty sure to be measured out to us. The Indian summer, with its bland smthwest and mitigated sunshine brings all up; and on the 2jth of November, or there* aiiouts, being Thursday, three millions of grate ful people, in meeting houses, around the family b >ard. give thanks for a yt&r of health, plenty and happiness " A Goon Susubstiox.?The Boston Courier, alluding to the ntuuy serious accidents that aunually occur from an unskilful use of guns, *ts: u Cannot teaching be given to boys in the art of loading, carrying and handling guns, for I in>uey, as in fenciug, or ridiug, or dancing '. \ .VIight not some retired officer of the army or navy open a school to teach the use of fireaims ' and also charge himself with the duty of selecting good fowling pieces for his pupils? We think there are many parents who would be greatly relieved if there wers such a place, or if such teaching could be nroeured. Of course, the character of the teacher would be an important element in the sucess of such a scheme ; as >ueh a school in unworthy hands might become a corrupting iutluence.
