The alarm ball, which ww kept near by to strike on such occa sions, began to peal forth its alarm, and from a dock below, in a few moment*, a boat of the Humane Society shot out, guided by a blue light, which was sent up by a watchman sta tioned on the cupola above the dock. The unearthly wild glare of the light, as it rose with a fiery train, high in the air. was shed upon the bridge, rirer, and throngs of barges and re*mls beneath, lighting them up with the glare of noon-day. but only tor a moment. But in this moment those who looked down from the bridge saw a boat, as it shot out from under the arch adown which tho form of the suicide had descended from tha parapet, lay to an in stant, and drag on board the body of a man ? He is safe!" J ?? They're got hire in !" W ho can J?e be ' were the exclamations of the watchmen and others While they were y*t 'Peking, the blue-light descended far orer the *ater, and was suddenly extinguished in the black wares of the Thames, tearing the scene, so lately illumined and clearly visible once more wrapped in darkness Th? lluniane's barge, seeing thaf the strange boat had rescued the man. retired to its berth in the dock, and iu a f?-w minutes all its? si lent as before. save the light, pattering feet of bra?for so also was she called?as she hast ened along the bridge on her way homeward, wondering why the good gentleman should wish to drewa himself, aud rejoicing that the boat's oompany had taken him safely out of the rirer. ? ? will now transfer the reader to an old structure, partly stone and partly of old black and decayed oak, which stands on the very shore of the Thames, half a mile abore London bridge, on the right bank. It was ono of the tew dwellings which remained of the days of fcuxabeth, and had been the residence of "a no ble lord of her court; and for that day it was an edifice of dignity and importance. But houses hare their histories, and their ups and downs in life, as well as their owners ; and aP trough many queer experiences and being put to many base uses, it had. at the time of our story goj to be a sort of rirer-side taproom, or boatman s inn . peculiarly fitted for such a use. bar ing to second story built out like a piazza far ?Jk f w wat#r> *? that a score of wherries and other boats could run under and lie together h ? lu 8i0lt?ri while from the water up. through the floor of the piazia. was a stairway th<? mrn ^ honse. which had a front on Thames Alley, a rile and narrow lane, which threaded the maze* of old bouses that lined the rirer side thVSack ~by which name thu ancient inn was known?was equally accessible by the .'treat as by the rirer?it had two sets of visit ?r,?^ e tbn>?n as well as the watermen.

The landlord, for rea sons of his own. had closed his doors half an hour earlier than usual Yet he had not put out all his guests. Baneath the iron lamp, and partly in its descending rays, sat a man who-e appearance was striking JIe was very large in nis breadth of shoulders and had a hearv looking square head, corered by short, black hair, streaked with gray. His features were bold aud high, with eyes of singular steadiness and fire. His complexion was dark, like the sea-tan o a man who has been in foreign clime.-. He hs.i out one arm. and wore the empty sleev* of iU nautical watch-coat thrust into the brea*i of it.

As be spoke he opened a door which led upon 'he gallery, and the lamp sbiuiug through it upon the water revealed a barge with six men in. just trailmgo irs to shoot in under the fl^or. Tne nezt nvunent it struck gently with its bow tbe lower stair. "All right?' demanded the captain, as be me oue ascending tbe stairs from it. ?

And he threw open the tront of his nautical pea-jacket of blue pilot cloth, displaying, momentarily, a brace of pis tols and a short, bright sabre. '' t"k* a <?*"?

The fog, at one time, was s-.heavy weoould not see a boats length; but e wind that has come up the river breaks it away; and I think we shall have some light on our way down to the town " "Hist man! wainscots hare ears!

Down, was answered from without, in the same tone of caution. raan ' exclaimed Paul, with certainty, and tho next moment the heavy chain and lock were partly remored. and two persons wrapped to the eyes, one in a cloak, the other in a thick .hawl, entered, stooping beneath the loosened cham. when the door was instantly closed and I? *1 j r did not r?move a broad fat v.? bis deoply"?haded brow, nor hi. cloak from his mouth, until he had cast a rapid and assured scrutiny around him. He hx*.*ny mantle, which was heavy with the night mist, and revealed the slight, yet tall figure of an elegant and graceful young gentleman, not more than six-and-twenty. His air and bearing were of that decided mark and tone which confessedly belong to the British aristocracy; a combination of haughtiness and ease, of selt possession and courtesr, of conde scension an-f res-rre. His face wa^ singularly hand^uie. and yet pale as marble, and worJ thin a* if with anxiety ami the restlessness of a guilty conscicnce. It wore an expression of age without years Both the captain and Paul touched their foreheads with deference, and yet ZULU"''?.H i. fami,i?"?y The young i xswainof the boat made nosign of recognition of him. and endently was ignorant of his name th r:*K i ra"u h? had' ,Iis companion in !r??i. ?' .Vu?r! thick f?,,ow remained ?inding in the back-ground, still muffled to the eyes. ? I am glad to find you here. Captain." he said, nodding and speaking in that refined and thoroughbred tone of voice which oan only be educated into men; and which is ever an indi cation of high breeding "I find," he added, looking at a heavy gold watch. ' that I am a few minutes late. "In pretty good time, my lord." said the captain, with a look as if he would like to be rami liar, but knew not how to overcome his habitual deference to rank, while the pale and haughty-eyed nobleman looked as if any un due familiarity would be replied. Vet why (lid he expose himself to the danger of compro mising himself by companionship with two such rogues as these, nay. with three such, for the young boatmau looked more like a dashing and daring buccaneer than an honest sea-going sailor, tven the man who carne in with? him had a villainous, out-throat look, so far as a glimpse could be got of bis beetle brow and thick nose, lighted on each side with small glittering eyes that shone, in the cavernous darkness of the leathern visor of his huge lur cap, like the eyes of a panther. In the centre or and superior in form and bearing to them all, as if a |>emg of another caste, stood the young lord For an instant a look passed across his face as if be disdained himself for such degrading asweiations, yet compelled to hold tueni for the time for purposes of his own oither of good or evil. Can they be good ? Can anything excellent or of good report come of such a company, assembled here in this den of robbers, at midnight ? ' You hare your man. I see, my lord." nod ded the old conrict Paul, looking across to the panther. '? \es. and if you and yours hare done your Eart we have all we have planned for. Ih the oat here ?" ; And six men at the oars. It waits at the stairs, answered the captain taking up his pistol and thrusting it into his broad black belt, where it hung bv a steel hook attached to the inner aido of the barrel. " (Jeorge, get all ready. " ? In a few moments the black-looking barge. containing the captain, the young nobleman! and his short companion, with George at the helm, was silently pushed out of the little shel tered dock of the ian, the walls of which hid it from the observation, even by day, of any on *hore , so that a boat could ahoot clear out into the stroam before it would be visible from the bouse and docks on either hand of the old iBn. Se\cr wns a robber s den more conveniently constructed for the purposes of roguery In the centre of it sat Paul of the branded brow, like a sly spider in the centre of his web. As the boat gilded noiselessly out into the river, he followed it with bis eyes, and as it disappeared in the darkness, and beyond the craft, heslowly shut and locked his door, saying, solus? [ " A right merry time, my masters! This night will make us all rich as the Lord Mayor, or hang you all high as Hainan?but not me ! 1 am only a friend of the parties! innocent as an angel unborn. I am an old bird?not to be caught with chaff, or salt on my tail, or quick lime What a precious cove that young my lord is ' I believe my lord would not stop short of anything for money. Here is the nice young fellow, not five years out of his teens ! But ho robs like a lord ' Plans and manages magnifi cently. He is none of your footpads or burg | lars lie means to be a sort of rogue that won t disgrace the peerage. Well, he pays well for using my bouse, and promises me well for *eore?*y. I pray he may get what he goes for. There is no fear in his blood?his ancestors were ail dare-devils and traitors, and bled on Tower Hill' Grand rogues?too lordly to be transported! Well! the Towerowes him some thing! His father's blood has paid before hand. as he says, for what he means to take to night. Heaven seud em back, and I'll be an honest man ever after, on my share of five thousand pounds, and forswear rogaery, malt liquors, and suspicious characters, 1 11 nettle down a country squire, and take to port, and die with the gout like a duke." The door elosed and barred, Paul put ano ther mug of malt beneath his waistcoat, and after carefullpr examining bis doors and windows (having previously closed the water-gate to his doekstaiis) he entered a little inner room, which had in ancient days been the private eabtnet of the Karl of Kssex, and in which Pr pys, Eveliw, Charle* the Firat and Second, and, s>ine say, even Fhakspeare. had sat with one or the other of the noble line ol boats. Upon a settle in the corner Paul stretched himself, after feeling beneath his bolster to aeoertaia if the Money be bad taken that day, ia the way of his vocation, and his two-barreled Spanish pistolet, a foot and a half long, were in their places. The boat, in which the midnight party we hare seen secretly embark were moving down the river, had not prooeeded many rods in th? darkness when a heavy drift of fog, blown up the river, enveloped them in cimmcrian black ness. One could not distinguish the figure of his next neighbor. The tide was at the flood, and the current could not indicate their direc tion. To advance longer by the oars nan per ilous", as well as uncertain, and each moment they were striking against some vessel's side. "This darkness is more than 1 asked for," said the young nobleman, in a tone of impa tience. " We shall not reach the Tower before morning at this rate.'' For two honrs they were inextricably entan gled among the craft that lay closely anchored, either by the shore or in the stream ; and when at length they were enabled to see stars by the lifting of the fog. they ascertained that they had been moving towards Westminster Abbey, a direction opposite to the one they desired to take. At length, when it was past two o'clock, they camo in signt of London bridge, and, favored by the ebb, tuey shot rapidly beneath one of the tall, massive arches, the captain at the h lm guiding her safely through the perilous pass. Scarcely had they darted from beneath when a dark form descended lilco a thunderbolt into the water by their side, with a simultane ous skriek from the parapet above filled the air. '?It's a man !" exclaimcd the young noble, in a tone of generous humanity. " Back your oars, all! I have him by the hair ! Drag him on board.'' The young lord had seized, while speaking. Lord Conybeare. a.s he rose by his side of the barge, and, being assisted by two of the oars men, the unhappv earl was laid in the bottom of the boat, which scarcely had paused in its carecr; for the swift current had borne both the suicide and the barge onward together un til be was rescued. "Oars ! give way. men. with a will!:' called out the captain ; and the next moment the boat and its party disappeared in the thick dark ness far down the river.

Joe Phbi-ps's "Sneezing'' Dons. ? Joe Phelps, who by virtue of a long and painful residence in Jersey, has a face sprinkled with freckles, the result of the sunlight on the sandy soil of that monopoly domain?is and ha? been, and always will be?a dog fancier. His house is a jierfect menagerie of uogs, of every variety known to man. Ilia greatest pleasure consists in teaching the youngcanine idea how to shoot: and the laziness of two brindle, crop-eared, bow-legged, big-headed, hair-lipped bull-terri ers, which he calls his favorites, is sufficient evidence that they are ndefatible '-setters."' Joe keeps a tavern, a few miles in the rear of Camden, upon a dismal sort of a bj'-road. which, by virtue of crossing the Camden and Aiaboy Railway several times in its zigzag course, is sometimes called the "Short Cut to Eternity." The sitting room of Joe's tavern was large, airy, comfortless, and there was an old-fashioned fire-place, which occupied an en tire side of the apartment. The two bull terri ers. in cold weather, were continually roasting themselves at each end of the hearth, scarcely ever stirring, unless tempted by hunger to hunt up a stray bone or two. One evening a stranger stopped for the night; and after his horje was cared for. Joe ushered his guest into the fitting room, and went out to " do up the chores. The stranger drew up a chair to the centre of the broad hearth, and then, for the first time, noticed that he was the object of an intense scrutiny from two ugly canines, one each side of him. Presently the stranger gave vent to a violent sneeze. To his astonishment, the two dogs wagged their stumpy tails, looked at each other with a solemn expression of countenance, ami then slinked away, through an open door, into another room. A moment after, Joe came in "Hello! stranger, where's them dorgs of mine?'* " I don't know, sir; I don't know; I sttrezctl just now, and it must have frightened them, for they started off instantly " "That's it! I'spected you had sneezed. I always whip them dorgs for sneezing.'' The mystery of the sudden departure of "them dorgs was now explained: each nog had thought It was the other that sneezed ; so both went out, mentally thinking of the " strapping'' in perspective. A Balloon Ascension and a Fight ?The ascension which Professor Marion promised to make at Hudson on Wednesday, ended in a row and a fight. Professor M. having a short sup ply of funds, ordered up x short supply of gas. lie got into the basket, but the basket would not ascend. The Professor then cut loose from the basket and undertook to go up aB be did in this city, seated on the ropes. He did not suc ceed ; not gas enough. Professor then pulled off his coat, vest ana boots, hoping less weight would give him more bouyancy. Another fail ure. lie then offered to pull off pantaloons and stockings, and go up in the costume of a 'Roman senator ' This so horrified an old lady from the rural districts that she allowed she'd faint and call police. Profeaeor reconsidered the Roman senator question, and resolved that he'd have more gas. More gas waa procured?6.000 feet. Api>eared to make balloon heavier. Hud son gas is made on a new principle, and can be poured from juga like molasses. A portion of the people became impatient, and iintormedtbe Profefsor that he was a "foo-foo.'' Professor talked back. This exasperated the crowd. Professor seeing exasperation tainted away, and was carried to the Hudson House His agent, Mr. Myers, then undertook to make an ascen sion on his own hook Myers also failed where upon people informed Myers that he too was a " foo too. ' Myers thinking this was personal, got out of the ropes, folded up the balloon and returned to Huuson House. At the Hudson House the feud was renewed. John Best allow ed that Marion "ought to be chawed up for cat meat." Marion retorted, and offered to fight Best for $25. Mr. Best sailed in. squared for the Professor and " put a shed over bis eye'' in aboutone and a half minutes. Marion fell? was picked up and put to bed. Thus terminated the second great balloon ascension in Hudson. To supply Marion so used up the gas at head quarters that half the city last night had to go bock to oil lamps and tallow candles. During the row the balloon was badly torn. Marion is a benefactor. He has given Hudson the first taste of " lift" that it has experienced in four teen years.?Albany Knickerbocker.

From one of the oldest firms in Baltimore, Meaara. B-ggs, fjotman A Co. . Having employed l)r. Stephen Baily, Surgeon Den tist.of H ashmgton city, to execute for me an im portant ar.d diffioalt piece of work, which he did to my entire satisfaction, and in view of the fact that one of the most distinguished rnembersof the Dental College of Baltimore, failed, after repeated trials, to perform the same work satisfactorily, it gives me great pleasure to express my entire eonSdenoe and nigh estimation of his professional skill.

The teeth yon made for me work admirably ; noth ing oou Id be better. Very gratefully, JOHN M. CLAYTON. To those that aeek relief from the maladies of the teeth, I can oheerfully reoommend Dr. S. fatly as a superior Dentist; he made a set of porcielian teeth for one of my family, and plugged several teeth for myself, and the work has all stood well for more than tenyeara.
