Barton, or the lamented Charley Burke, in tha part of 41 John Pater,'' tha following version of? POOR PI LLICODDY. fFoanded on the popnlar theatrical play of that name J John Pater Pillicoddy was a seedsman and florist in Southampton. England Within the sh^p where be transacted his business were ??eus. and rooU. and dowers, without number: over which Sarah, the smarte-tof shop girls, presided with much dignity Behind the shop was a garden, with no end of plants and dower trumP*>7 Within this garden. Mr Pillicoddy. watering-pot in hand, presented hiiu*<-lf one fine morning. -Past si j o'clock. I declare!" he exclaimed, looking at the clock through theopen shop-dooi'; "I d no idea it was so late; I may say I thought it was earlier I'pou my life I don't know how it in >>ut time passes so agreeably when one happen* to be married. I don't know whether that s the general opinion; but my experience, and I hare been married six months, warrants mc?I might say authorise* me?publiely to repeat my observation, that time passes so agreeably when one happens to be married.'' " I'm glad to see you watering the plants. ?r; it begtus to look like old time* again. 'said ^arah. the shop-girl, earning to the door, ai d smoothing down her apron with both hands as shop-girls will. I certainly went ont into the grounds for that P<>rp<M?. >arah,' returned Mr. Pillicoddy, but by the time I had half finished the job. I suddenly discovered, upon looking into the watering-pot. that I had entirely forgotten the water, which water is, I believe, generally^if not universally, acknowledged to bo an imno7 taut auxiliary in the operation of watering.'' " Ah, st," sighed Sarah, with a despooling shake of the head, --that shows you were think ing ol something else. I d give a whole year's wages to see you standing behind that counter ?gaia. with your apron on, serving oat seed* " Pm'h-Vi0B 7'"'J;"rah in ^. replied Mr. Pillicoddy. briskly. ?^ou wouldn t grudee yoar master, your indulgent master, a little occasional relaxation ?" No; bat the little occasional relaxation you speak of has been going on for the last six **"? " I'm aware of it, Sarah. When I married 1 put this question to myself?and I pat it se riously, t>arah?? Shall I attend to my busi ness, or to my pleasureAnd I unhesitat inglydecided in favor of the latter, anl I felt taat I could devote myself to my present career or innocent dissipation for the remainder of tnv existence without a murmur." 4?v Ywf'11 eir' Sarah. but I m at raid you indulge missus a leetle too much Perhaps I do. t?d Mr. Pilliooddy. with the air of one perfectly content to let thine* remain as they were whether right or wrong I erhaps I do, but I can't help it; Mrs Pilli coddy has such a winning way with her. I as sure you that her playful manner of directing my attention to a new shawl or a new dress in a shop window, must be seen to be appreciated And then when I purchase the article in que*, tion her style of saying ? thank ye'a ? she says ai I ? M ,f ,ba rw*,,3r meant thank >u. A j, sarah. you don t know what it is to have a younj wi&?!" '^^7-?nd what's more. I'm sure I never returned Sarah, triumphantly, evi dently much satisfied with the reflection that it was morally and physically impossible for her ever to know anything of the sort. - Don t be sure of anything, Sarah; there s no knowing what may happen Look at me; wasn t I notorious f..r my any antipatbv to the matrimonial state "* \ cn, but that was before you saw Mrs. Pil lioodly. Ah, she certainly was a bloomin* young widow?" " Sarah' ejaculated Mr Pillicoddy. with a ?tart, and considerable elongation of counte have 1 10,(1 you never to allude to Mrs Pillicoddy's former state. It's paiutul to me?distressing to me; the Very word ? widow' puts my flesh nil of a creep, just a* if tnere were several rakes being ilrawn backwards and forwards over my body?up and down my back, especially " i-i m 8ure- *ir. if I had known you didn t lika her to be called a widow, I would nt have called her a widow. And yet, if she had nt been a widow you could'nt have married ^*jowT?7 l,rother Tom marriod a widow, poor / _ mean by 'poorfellow ?'

''It's just lour years ago. Anastnsia Pillicoddy, since you and I got up one cold ?*rosty morning and walked to Gosport church, where wo were severally united in the bonds of matrimony to the men of our hearts ; you to Captain Fitzpat riok O Scuttle. and I to his second cousin. Cap tain Fitzgerald O'Scuttie. At tho end of three years your husband disappeared in a gale of wind. and left you a widow. I wish I could say the same of mine " Mrs. Pillicoddy intimated that sue was shocked. 44 You tbiuk tho expression too energetic; wait till you have heard tho atrocious particu lars. When my husband sailed on hi* last voyage, a year ago. I requested. as a particu lar favor. to bo allowed to accompany him. He ' objoetod; the Lively Polly sailed without me, and my husband said he should return in six mouths ; at the end of that time. I got a letter from him. saying he shouldn't ba ba.-k Quito so soon Three mouths more passed, ami I got another letter, saying that he had been de tained by contrary winds and strong currents ?very convenient things. these contrary winds and strong currents. A whole year passed, and I was gradually becoming tolerably com fortable in my indicted state, when, yesterday morning at breakfast, news was brought me that tho 'Lively Polly had been signalled ofl tho port. Of course 1 went into extaoies, but they didu t last long; I had no sooner heard of the Lively Polly's safe arrival, thau in.came tho mate of vessel, whom u?y husband had sent on shore. He had two letters in his hand, one for me. and the other for an intimate friend of my husband's. I offered to deliver it; I took it and?" 44 Opened it interrupted Mrs Pillicoddy. "Decidedly opened it: The eontenta para lysed mo ! ihtrre s tho letter?devour its con tents!" ?'Dear Tom,'" began Mrs. Pillicoddy, taking the letter from her sister, and reading aloucT "\es, tho letters addressed to Captain ThoniaaTrumpct?sorno marine monster 1 never heard of.

Now, my dear Tom, you must take charge of her for the present, aa my wife iam( be kept entirely in the dark, yon understand7" '? ell, Julia. I must confess that your hus band's conduct is suspicious, and I should advise you to return to Portsmouth immedi ately and demand an explanation." " \ ou advise mo to see the wretch again !" eicla;med Julia, vehemeutly. k*iIow, I should like to inquire, do you suppose bo can satisfac torily explain such a thing a3 this? No, I'll not go back !" ? l>ut I am afraid you cannot remain hero. Mr. Pillicoddy s notionsof femalo propriety aro so scrupulous, that I in suro he woula severely blame your conduct in leaving homo. I think, however. 1 can find tho accommodation you re quire at the bouse of a friond of uiina." u0 thank you !" returned Julia, embraoing her sister. 44 Ha ' some one is coming." 44 Then step into this room, and I'll rejoin you immediately, saidMrs. Pillicoddy, showing her sister in at one door and herself out at another, about h%!f a second before the somebody that was coming actually did come.
