Some rears ago. an artist-mechanic, residing in New York, while in straightened circumstan ce*. lost his wife, and felt it necessary to place ono of his children in the half-orphan asylum The lad conceived a strong ambition for an edu cation. and at hia own solicitation, was appren ticed. by the managers of the asylum, to a mer chant at the eastward, who promised faithfully to furnish the means for the long-coveted edu cation. As the lad grew up and became useful to his employer, the latter evinced an indispo sition to fulfil his promise in the matter of edu cating him. the end of which was. that the lad. now grown grown a young man, ran away to se?-k his own fortune T?> avoid pursuit, he paiwod by another than hi? own name; and, not .neeting with the ^uc ce s in Boston and other places in the Eastern "fates which bo bad hoped for. he at last found himself in New York, and almost penniless.

" Why, "Zcke, what brought yon back so ao?>n ? But I'm glad to see you though!" ^nr adventurer drew back from the proposed greeting, modestly saying there must be some mistake, and adding? - My name is not Zcke, but I used to have a brother socalled." Kxplanations followed, and he found that he was ia the house of that brother. Ilis father had. fo* some cauae. changed his name soon after his revert" an 1 his wife's death, and his brother went only by the new name. The father, though getting along comfortably, was not wealthy; but the brother Zeke, between whom and himself existed the strong resemblance which had led to the discovery, had been very sucecsaful. He hr.d started with hi- wife for a country jaunt two or three days before this occurrence, leaving his wife's sister in charge of the house: and -he i wa*. who bad. by mistaking the identity of her sister's husband, brought the wanderer homo.

It is very true that the length and expansion of the fashioiiaMe drc-s gives its nearer the f rui of a bell-mouthed glasa tumbler with a stein to it. turned upside down No doubt, a lady might be a fiih from the wai.-t downward, and stand upon a caudal fin in that dress, with out looking at all the worse than she looks in it now But this is precisely its recommendation: that of serving to conceal those perfections of form whi<-h. *u?n allowed to be perceptible, attract an arnountof observation which must le unpleasant to the object of it. and which can do the observer no good. Many men. now living, are old enough to remember the time when the style of ilress. in consequence of being calcula te to exhibit, and not to hide, personal advan tage*. young men with very frivolous and vain impressions. Dresses were then worn so short as not quit* to sweep the street, and wherever you went, if there were well-dressed girls there, you were continually catching a glimpse of a much too dainty foot and nn?*le, twinkling with a far too elegant little sandal.

Every hu*ban<l and fa'ber ought to approve < f the fashionable dresses, for they pre lude his wife from attracting unnecessary attention, and if they tend slightly to hinder him from getting his daughters off his hand?, they hare an exactly equal tendency to prevent his from marrying for mere beauty, so that if tftev marry at all. they marry prudently, looking to the financial aod not the bodily fig ure itod thus become comforts instead of bur dens to their parent* and triends. And sons who marry imprudently arc infinitely more ex- . pensive than unmarried daughters Lastly. the-"e dresaej arc considered very pretty by toe great majority of the wearer*, who think ^>? ?ut dress, as they <lo abont every- { thing else, giegariously. and have no other ; idea of what t? pretty than what is faxh ona- ' hie.

BAi?risy View or Baptis* m Pk? xv ?The Illinois Bantist gives an account of a ingular baptism it soems that one William Evans, a preacher of the M E. Church, re-ent'y had oc casion to baptize a number of candidates near .Scottsville. 111., who would b? immersed, con trary to all that could be said against scriptu- ! ral baptism Having said so mu h (gainst the practice. Mr E would not go into tlie water ! Siimself, but secured the services of a Rev. Mr. i Butcher, of the Campbellites. who took the Can dida te? into the water and immersed them, i whii'- he ? Evansi stood on the bank and said, " 1 hap'ize thee in the name of the Father, and j the rivn and the Holy <?host We l-anaot understand what possible gain in principle '-one William Evanr' eonld have ex peu|ad to make by thus //M/rAs/ing the boauti- j furtferl impressive ceremony of scriptural bap- | tism If the words he pronounced from his stand point on the bauk of the stream were true, he certainly baptised the candidates by immersion, and thu? sacrificed the principle for which he contended ; if they were not true he manifestly chose the greater of two sins. In either ease his conduct was a compromise l?e tween ligo-.ry and expediency, which we have rarely seen equaled. It reminds us of a ques tion in casuistry which agitated the Catholic 1 achooltnen ?>mc centuries since ; a case having beta suppoee l of a deaf and dumb priest who, | being called up >n to baptise an infant, h Id the uitci in his arms, while his colleague, who had ao arm? read the service; if, they queried, baptijm is a personal ordinance, c >uId a bap tiaji thus performed be valid After due con sid??a< iou by the grave doctors, the question was defiled in th* negative.

He was informed that the Cashier's che- k on Boston would boas good as the gold for the purpose, and in case of loss, be more secure, as piyment could be stopped, lie concluded, however, to take the gold, which was at once counted out to him. The next the bank officer heard of him he wu under arrest, aud the following facts wereelicited. Thestory about taking thc funds to M nine was a ruse to obtain specie. The gold bid been secreted under the hay in the loft of a stable, and the man visiting it in the night, had t iken a lantern, the light of which had arrested the attention of ar.other party who watched the movements. sup|io.sing thc owner of the gold to I* an incendiary, took the man and his bag of double eagles to the police station houso.
