(Pounded on the popular theatrical play of that name ] [COSCLCDED ] The new arrival was a large man, of rather salt appearance, dressed in a rough poa-jacket, bell-muazled duoh breeches, a tarpaulin hat. and armed with a long spy-glass ii? entered on the ran, took aim with hia telescope, looked earnestly and earefullj about the garden, and began paaing rapidlj to and fra on on* of the walks " I can't be mistaken !" he mattered to him self. " No. I aaw a female enter thii bouse: a amart. rakish-looking little craft, iust the nme build and ringing a* Mrs 0 Scuttle; but for the life of me I oouldn t distinguish her figure head. However.

" So, air, it seetns I've found you at last !" ? danger. " I believe your name is Pilli?something or other ?" "No. sir, it is not Pilli something or other? it's Pillieoddy?John Peter Pillicoddy !" ^ (7 well, sir; listen to me,"' returned the stranger, in a voiceof thunder. '? She's here'" ' There s no necessity, sir, for exercising your organ in that absurd manner," said Mr. Pilli eoddy, rather taken aback by the stranger's peculiar style. '* I repeat, she's here!" continued the stran Jer, very rapidly and fiercely. 44 You can't any it. Don't speak; you haven't a word to say; don t^ interrupt me ! JIuw did she come here f When did she come here ? Why did she come here ?" " Really, my dear sir. the pronoun she being applicable to the entire female sex, I must trou ble you to clearly define the particular she Von mean by she ?" " My wife, sir !M yelled the stranger, louder than ever. "Your wife, sir ?" echoed Pillicoddy, con- I silerably staggered. " Your wife, pooh, pooh I I beg to observe there's nothing personal in my pof h, pooh; therefore, a* I said before, pooh, r?h I know nothing of your wife; how should There s only oue married female in thie house, and she happens to be my wife." *? Don't trifle with me, Pilli?whatever it is. I saw her, distinctly saw her, at a window on that side of the house; and that must be the room, and he started towards the door through through which Julia had vanished; "so. sir, if you ve no objection, we'll have her out." " Beware, mariner, beware !" exclaimed Pil hooddy, throwing himself before the stranger. "Ira small, but desperate; diminutive, but de termined ! And yet, as Anastasia is at this mo ment in the parlor, and you insist that your wife is in that room, have her out by all mean*. T%ere don't happen to be any body there?never theless, have her out." "0, there s nobody hero, eh?*' said the stran ger, trying the door, and endeavoring to look through tae key-boie. " then how happens the door t?. be locked on the inside of it, eh ?" '? Hullo, sir' No looking through the key hole; delicacy forbids !" said Pilliooddy, pull ing him away. " Hark ye. Pilli?whatever it is ! Don't pre sume to trifle with me any longer, or, by the blood of the O'Scuttlee-' 3 14 The w-h-a-t?" faltered Pillieoddy. "The O'Seuttles! Captain O'Scuttle stands before you." 44 Are you that man ? Does this hand really and traly grasp a Scuttle?" murmured Pilli coddy, in a very plaintive tone indeed, as he sank upon a bench and burriod his face in his , *? " ^ " 'top?wait a bit!'" he suidenly exclaimed. aUrding up with considerable ani mation; ?' my dear sir, allow me to call your at tion to a trifling but important fact, that seems to ha** entirely to have alippod your memory, and that is,yuu are drowned !" "Ob, Ira drowned, am I ?" sneered the cap tain. 44 You knew you are; you are at this very mo ment at the bottom of the sea. And yet I see no barnacles on thee! Thero was no ond of tears shed for you at first; but now you are for gotten, the world gets along very comfortably without you; so why destroy the agreeable de lusion ' Now go back from whence yon came. 1 have considered the point in all it bearings, and I should be neglecting a duty, a sacred duty, if 1 did not advise you to go back from whence you came." Thark you; bnt I've had enough of thfc sea for some time. Let me tell you, shipwreck's' no joke, it a no trifle to be wandering about on an island, like Robinson Crusoe. However, sir, I once again beheld the white cliffs of old Eofjnad. forgot all troubles in contem plating the affectionate, loving welcome of my wife, but it wasn t to be, sir! Excuse these tears? 44 Don't mind me, sir," returned Pillicoddy. w..h emotion; "get rid of the superfluous salt water, by all means. I really feel for yoo; to me there s something peculiarly touching in the oontemptation of a jolly tar when he's not jolly." ^ 8?nttle has left her home." continu ed tae captain, sighing deeply. " He calls her Mrs O'Scuttle !" thought Pil jimuWy. " Then he s not?he seems so entirely broken down bv xrief. physically as well as mentally, that I think I may venture to tell lus. My dear ?ir, ho cootinued, turning to the captain. " will you allow me to mention to you in confidence, that when you presented yourself before me for the fint time, I immedi ately made this observation to myself, within myself, ? If there ever was a man cut out by na ture to bear a shock like a Briton, that man is the man I don't wish to flatter you. but to mjself, within myself, I made that observa tion " ? r*turn*i the captain, marching to rillicoddy very fiercely and threateningly; " and pray, sir. didn't it ever ooour to you, at the same time, that I was just the sort of man to cut your throat, or any man's that dared to do me an injury .'" " W by. no. 1 can t say?'" "Cantyoa? Then, by tbe powers, I'll show you it is so. if you don t immediately and satis factorily explain how it is that I find my wife ia your house " ;? Yeur wife ?" returned Pilliooddy, endeav oring to assume a conciliatory aud patronising manner. 44 W ken you say your wire, of course you are naturally and powerfully impreased with the pleasing but slightly erroneous idea that she t a your wife! Did it never occur te y->a. as you were wandering about your island I'ke a wretched Kobinson Crusoe, that your wife might naturally fancy herself a widow, and fancying herself a widow. ?he might tonal ly naturally endeavor to console herselr for your bwsby?in short, marrying again; for in stance, me ?" 44 What?' yelled the captain. 44 You don't mean to tell me you've married my wife ?'' " Certainly not, sir; I've married your wi dow " 4' Widow! How can this be when I'm alive'*' ?' Bnt you have no business to be alive; it's the beight of absurdity on your part to be alive !" 4* Faithless, perjured woman!" groaned the captain. slabbing his forehead. "But I'll be tbe death of her ' he continued, furiously, as he rushed out of the garden gate. 44 Tell her to pack up instantly, aud prepare to follow her lawful husband !" 44 What's to b?done?" exclaimed Pillicoddy. in das pair. "?i*? up Anastasia' ? never' W bat would life be to me without my Anasta ?ia??nothing What would Anastasia be to me without life?? oothinger yet.

I mean your hu?band; do, not your hus band?" 4; I thought so; I was sure I heard the good for-nothing fellow> voice,'- returned Julia. 44 Can it be possible? Does he lore mo still? 44 He says he adores you; so much so, that ho swears he 11 be the death of you, and me too; so lot's fly, beloved of my 9?>nl. let's fly together." 44 Who can this be'" said Julia, alarmed at his somewhat demonstrative stylo of grabbing hold of and clawing her- 41 What watch I ess impudence! Let me go. sir!" And breaking from him, she rnn across ttfc gardou and disappeared in the green-house. 4* She breaks from me!" murmured Pillicod dy, staggering against the wall, supposing Julia to be his wife. '4 1 understand it all; she loves her first?she said so. She'll follow hor first through the world; she'll put down her Pilli coddy and take np her Scuttle?she said so. O, what execrable ta.ve! to say nothing of the base ingratitude of the woman, after the no-end of new bonnets I've bought her. What will be come of me? Curiosity is not naturally one of my failings, but it would be satisfactory to havo some faint idea of what will become of me." And again he sank down upon the bench and hid his face in his hands. 44 Surely I eannot be mistaken," said Mrs. Pillieoddy, s? she entered the garden on tip-too and groped her way along the walk; 44 the gen tleman that I caught a glimpse of a few mo ments ago. walking about the grounds. I have not seen Cant. O'Scuttle for four years, and it's almost too dark to recognize any one to a cer tainty; yes I am quite sure?ah, there's some body hero! Can it be he' If so. I will inform him at once of Julia's arrival. Is that you, eaptain?" she continued, raising her voice, ''is that you?" "Captain!" murmured Pillieoddy. 44 Sho thinks it's Robinson Crusoe; she take* hor sec ond for hor first. Yes," he continued, raising his voice, and tryirg to talk sailor: "A3*, ay. my hearty! Shiver my timbers! Haul awayi my O, boys'" 44 Then listen to me," said Mrs. Pillieoddy, hastily approaching him. " Your wife is here; she may have acted a little imprudently, but I'm sure you'll forgive her, like a dear, kind, affectionate husband that you are. Believe me. she loves you as dearly oa ever; so lose no time, but take her away at once, before Mr. Pillieoddy knows anything about the matter." "Ha, ha, ha!" shouted Pillica'ldy, wildly. " Ha, ha. ha ! Go to your first! Resume your Scuttle! Follow your Scuttle throughout the world ! tlo, perjured, capricious Anastasia. go' Don't think to break my heart; no, no, hero I'll stay and calmly witness your departure. Ha. here he comes !"' he exclaimed, still more wildly, as the captain entered through the gate. 44 Crusoe comes to claim his wife; the gentle Robinson approaches! Come in. Baruaclcs, don't be shy; come in, I say! There, take her, arid my ble.??ing along with her!" And pushing her into the qaptain's arms, he rushed into the shop, and closed and bolted the door. 41 And now?now" he continued, lighting a candle, 4> what has Pillieoddy to live for .'? nothing? Ergo. Pillieoddy dies. But the means r I can't swim, so there's 110 use think? ing of drowning myself; and apothecaries won't dispose of arsenic, except for rats; and although the majority of apothecaries are pro verbially credulous, still I feel it would be use less for me to pass myself off for a specimen of that species of vermin. Ha, yes, one of those numerous and long uegleotcd drawers oontains poppy-heads, and poppy-heads taken incessant ly tor several weeks produce immediate disso lution. Happy thought! Here are the poppy heods; what whoppers ! Fortunate Pillieoddy. that thoy should happen to be whoppers!"' And he munched them ravenously. '? Any thing much more unsavory. I might say nasty, I never tasted. Never mind, it'll soon be over, and then an inquest will be held upon me. T welvc of my most intimate friends and fel low-townsmen will?but stop?the worst of it is that all this will add considerably to the per fidious Anaat&aia's worldly happiness. Oh, if I could only do something to destroy the per fidious Anastasia'* worldly happiness before the poppy-hoads produce their effect. Ha! what do I see?" he exclaimed, as Julia en tered the shop by another door. " A lovely feu.ale !?and shall I hesitate ??no. Anasta sia thus do I cast you off forever?thus do I tear your loved image from my bosom, and supply its place with yonder exquisite stran ger. Happy idea! Ill about it straight." And approaching Julia, he fell on his knees before her. 4* Enchanting being, pardon the eandor of a stranger, a total stranger, hut I have a request to make, a trifling one, and that is that you will from this moment enshrine me in the innermost recesses of your heart!" "Mr Pillieoddy'"' ejaculated Julia in aston ishment. "Yes, your Pillieoddy; so take me ; all I have hi yours; my house, my shop, my grounds, my flowers, my very cucumber frames! I'm only following the ]>erfidi<?us Anastasia'e exam ple. Sho has recovered her Scuttle, and is nappy in that Scuttle. In short, give her a eottage and her Scuttle, and I believe she would be content! Yes, she loves the eolossal mariner?she told me so. They are now to gether in the garden?no they ain't; here they come." And springing from his kii*:cs. much moved by the sight of his wife, he rushed to wards the captain. 44 My Anastasia!" he ex claimed, imploringly ; 441 can't give her up?I won't give her up ! Scuttle, my gentle Scuttle, my gallant Scuttle, don't take her from me!" 1 "Confound Anastasia?who in thunder wants her ?"' growled the captain. "I want my wife; that woman there." " Anastasia, he doesn't want you! shouted Pillicaidy, clapping his wife in his arm*. "An astasia. the great bcuttle doesn't want you!" " Captain Fitzgerald O'Scuttle," said Julia, as that gentleman approached her, 44 as you have forced yourself into my presence, be good enough to explain that P. S.; in its present state, that P. S. reads anything but pleasant ly ." 4' What, jealous of little Jenny ?" exclaimed the eaptain, with a loud laugh. 44 Why, that mysterious female happens to be the most ele gant little Brazilian monkey that you ever f lapped eyes on. and I intended to surprise you with it!" i " A monkey for me ? O. my dear, dear hus band !" murmured Julia, allowing him to em brace and lead her from the shop. 44 Hurrah ' Crusoe has stepped eut! Rob inson has traveled ! Barnacles has departed !" shouted Pillieoddy. sinking into a chair, over come with joy and poppy-beads, and th?; next moment he was fast asleep in the allied arms of Morpheus and Mrs Pillieoddy Th?
