Well, gentlemen, our trouble is at hand. 'Brokers about?" asked fat Mr. Slooum, almost breakiug down Inkpen's bad. on the eige of which he sat. ~ On?,"' answered the President. " but ho evidently represent* the wh?>le tribe. He has tdkdD extraordinary pain* to disguise himself, aud evidently seeks by this mean* to draw us wu, and, little by little. secure our specie before we are forced to close '' Are you certain of this?" demanded Mr. Tenwait. a cautious, alow spoken gentleman. ?? Let mo have a lookath'.m." exclaimed Mr. kinkwine, evidently the mailer spirit of the B *rd. a email man neither spare Dor iucliaed l?i fl?oh. but preserving a ju.it medium. Ilia m >st remarkable feature was a hooked nose, it wan not a fat nose nor a lean nose, a small liose nor a large nose But, in a word, it was a remarkable now. a countenance in itself, without mjdal or like. Into this protuberar.ee seem * I to centre the condensed energy of the entire body Tt was one of the poles of action. That nose seemed the one reliable feature The ev?s. from under their cavernous recesses, watched that n <se?the mouth spoke for tha n? se?the whole body seemed attached to the nose This *w so remarkable, that everybody remarked it. People said. ?? Plnkbine has his now in everything, ' or "if Finkbine once gets his noso into that affair.'' or " Finkbine would ?rtoo n.se it oat," and other phrases of like caaracter, when speaking of the Dire-tor. No one objecting to the proposition. Mr. Fink bine ru.-diei in the pviin. and oruught his nose to bear upon the stranger. His first impulse w? to s.ay, ?' Pooh, j?ooh," but he caught the cunning expression of the half-closed eyes, and into these eyes Finkbine dived, nose and all; he traveled through the brain, down into the heart, along tho arm. into thesaddle-bag*. aud he saw the great heaps of notes, so. returning to the Biard. he threw himself iuto a chair, ex claiming? '? Fact, gentlemen; I saw through the scoun drel at once " No one seemed disposed to contradict the con clusion so emphatically announced and the Board proceeded to basiness [ have not the space to give in detail tho painful discussion which followed Every fifteen or twenty min utes. the stranger was apologized to. for the de lav he suffered. The apologies were quito un eilledfor. He ouly respouled, ';0h, sartin." and continued a careful perusal of the -4 , it i'l r'/f r f'cw on i iirfpil* S!a~Lv t'*r ThiJ ooul patience only the more irritated our frieuds of the Board. From it they bocame ?atisfied of the fact that the mysterious man of the saddle-bags represented all the brokers in the world, aud, fearing no competition, could afford to wait. To the inexpressible relief of tae Directors, three o'clock runout in silvery tones. and the Bank waaclosed. Mr Johnston invited the troublesome customer to dinner. There was one thiug very clear in thia strange specimen of a speculator- Us had the talent at silence to an eminent extent. At dinner, he eved curious'y hi1' silver fork, but said nothing, lie ate with his knife, without expressing any fears as to the consequence* lie declined wine, bat swallowed largo quantities of cider, witu >ut edging in between efforts more than monosyllable*. Atter dinner. Mr Finkbirte dropped in. and w?j introduce 1- Tne two Directors spoke ol liie Misir it lusca rati on, Ac., in the most se ductive style. They br ought to notice other projects, equally pleasing, but their new friend evinced no disposition to inves t. The only time ho did brighten up happeued wueu Mr Fink bine sugg*?ted something about ex-hanging Middleturgh bank Ewics for their owu. *?

When I ve got a iilver djlla# in my p-?cket. I've got a dollar, but a bank Dole w*y be a dollar, aud it may be not bin." Mr Johnston invited the old gentleman to mike bin hou?e a homo until he could be ac commodated. ?? If we coald only h .Id out three days long er,** said tho President, confiientially, to Mr. f . after his guest had retired. ' we would struggle tbrough. I hive made arran 'trai-nt.', I tumk, witii tie Middleburgh Bank, by which we can combine our specie, and, by its use in the hank first run upou. establish its credit, a ad then use its notes lor the benefit of the one text ruu upon."

All night long, the Pre?i lent >f the *-Bogn a County Bank ing Company" was running through sandy de ser'S, flying over vast seaa, chasing a pairuf old j r+>l lle-bag?. while after him flew the shadow of an aged gentleman in homespun.

Mr Finkbine managed, by the aid ?f the tertauts. to add a quantity of braudy to the eider. Without noticing tho change, the guett indulged in his usual potation*, and soon hi' flushed face gare evidence of the effect. But thev had no othfr He was not only silent as before, but carried ou bis countenance an ex preasion d?-?p and firm as the eternal hills. Mr 1'iukbiae .aid tUo President ^av? urcr in despair Tho two bankers withdrew, and im mediately the silent old gentleman exhibited an cxcitemfnt truly astonishing. Edward and Klla walked out upon the lawn, leaving the Aunt and stranger together. Miss Amanda Johnston would have proposed following, but strange to say. she experienced a lingular diz ziness. that made hor fear to leave the tufa. In fact. Mill Amanda had partaken of tho amend ed cider, without knowing of its improvement, and wjks now realixing its novel and bracing eflect. The old gentleman drew his chair clo3o to the sofa, and said? " I've been observin'on you pretty sharp, mum. since I come into this house.v '? Indeed, sir." Miss Amanda said "thir" she noticed the fact herself. " Yes. I have, and I think I know m good, kindly, spry, movin housewife, when I meets her."' , ?? You wish to compliment me. sir/' There it wag again, ? with'" and "thir." What could be the matter ? ?? Not a bit. Now spozen you was offered a house of your own?vour own house. I 9ay, just as good a one as this, only not so many lim eracks in it?all your own." '?Really. I do not understand you. sir." " W ell, I ain t a bit poetical; so here goes, i on ve got me?that is, you know, my heart; your heart is jjone, you know. \\ ?II, there ain t no use drivin' round?you've cot me? that's it." * "Why. sir. this is mogt extraordinary (<j thmnory) language. Let mo beg of you to ex plain ' "W ell. now. th?re ain t no use drivin" round. I My. you ve got me. I m an old fellow, not only rich, but well to-do. I vo got a big farm, and a big house, and not a chick or child in tbe world. Well, I m lonesome, I am. I re tried dogs and cats, and they ain't ot no man ner of use. I adopted a little fellow, and. blast blui. he likod to have burned my barn and killed me. T tell you. I m infernal lonesome." " I am very sorry." (pronounced sthorry.) " ^ bat I want is, for you just to up and say you'll be my partner, taken for better 01 worse W hat do you say to that, now ?" " W hv, really, this is so sudden, so unex pwte-L, ' (nearly broke down on " tkith, ith, tfio. thndden.'*) " Well, we haven't much time to Io*e. I reckon you and I ?and tho old gentleman actually placed his arm around the slender waist of Aunt Amanda. Our dear Aunt fluttered liko a bird. Indeed, indeed, I cannot permit thij. sir, you are a stranger?my brother7'?I presnme this ir. wli.it ^ur Aunt Atnindn purposed flay ing. as ?tis the speech proper on such occasion*. But the utterance was extremely mixed, and I the sense uncertain. "Ob. sartain ! I'll go talk to him right away; and, without adding another word, the ! old gentleman sought Mr. Johnston in the libraiy. and broke at oucc into the busings by saying? ?Squire, I vo a su Iden made up my mind to bee >me a part of your consatn?spozen ail bands williu'." Mr. Johnston, thinking he referred to the Bank, responded, smilingly? "Indeed, my dear sir, I *m dolightcd There can be no possible objection, I am euro." " I don't s??? none myself, of you don't. I'm a queer old fellow, and I in infernal lonesome. I want something to keep one alive." " An excellent idea, sir." " A very good idear for an old man, eh Of c .urse y..u want the particulars. You se? my name is Jouathan Pack w his t! e; I ve dealt in stock all my life."' " Fancy stocks ?" " Now and then, not often. Squire; they're too tender lor this country. You pay a pretty high price, and then, before you can market the article, it is just as likely to die on your hands, leavin' nothiu' there but horu3 and hide.* " Ha. ha ; horns and bi le?very good indeed, iou 11 find a difference here, I promise you? this won t die on your hands. ?*?. no tear of horns and hide." Pretty tuugh. en ' Well, I in glad we re both the same opinion. I'm an old fellow, who don't say much ; but when 1 u.ake up my mind to pitch in?I pitch in Now. I've got a thousand acres down on Pokewecd Prairie. as pretty a farm as you ever see. Every acre wo: th its hundred dollars, and not a chick, child, or debt, in tbe world That air t much to boast of. for I'm dreadful lonosoine." "Ah! you wuitt occupation ; thai s sensible. ^\eli, wo II give it to you. \oa 11 be reasona bly busy. I promise you. We will have a meet ing lo-day. and I will lay your proposition be fore the Board." " Meetin' Hoard ! What the Enakes has the Board j^ot to do with it?" "Oh. a mere form We mast keep up ap pearances y?.u know, fcjiuce my last move. Finkbine is the only one really interested, and I'm sure of his support If anything were to go amiss, Finkbinc would go crazy." " Hum ! ? said the old man. thoughtfully ?? six of you to consult. What the tiiunder! d^ies it uku six ol yoa to keep her struight f No wonder she ain t been fixed out before this" "Oh. by no manner of meau?-a mere form. I assuro you. Ono man of cool head and a little hardness of heart, for one mu?t not give way eu-ily, can manage ' her," as you say." " W el!. 1 aict afeared. Hie showsout lovely, clean, tidy, and good-n.tturcd. I jino hands on the proposition, Squire I go in for better or worse, as the sayiu'is. I've got papers in them .-addle-bags to support all I say ' "At :he mention of the papers and the sad dle-bigs. the President started, and almost shuddered ; but. recovering his self-possession, he shook hands with Mr- Jonathan, who start ed towards the door. Suddenly stepping how ever, bo walked back, with a significance that shone out in every motion. " I say. 'Squire, he exclaimed, ?? that young follow yonr nephew, is mightily of my opinion, lie's lonesome, too. Tin thinking, ' " I do not understand, Mr. Pack whistle." "Well, its about time you did I don't ?ay much, but I see and hear the inure That y ?ung f.dlow wants to come into the consarn, at well as me " "But, my d?*ar sir. he is poor; he has no capital?not a cent."' "The Mniumon of Unrighteousness speaks there, Sunire, and nothin of that sort prof ilers in this world. Poor to-day, rich to-mor row?they comes and goes?never sartiu?but good character and-good sense with larnin' stands by aHcrs. Now. that young tellow with his young head would be of more service to you than all the big-nosed Finkbine in the universe.'" "No one could appreciate Edwards fine qualities better than I?and it has always been uiy intention to do what you propose, and in dued more than you are aware of.' "Never spile a good mind. Now, just say the word." "I can't refuse you anything. Mr. Pack whistle. Edward shall have his place as signed him at once." ' May 1 tell him so?'* "Certainly, if you wish." Mr Jonathan PackwhUtle withdrew, and the President began walking his library floor, rubbing bis hands in perfect delight. This oc cupation was interrupted by the door being thrown open, and Aunt Aui.ind.i, flying in, throw herself into the arms of the astonished brother. " I>ear Brother Clinton."' she exclaimed, weeding, "how can I leave you W hy. Amanda, who the devil wants you to leave mi ?" Before she could answer the question, the door again opened, and Ella and Edward, rushing in like the Aunt, seized our aston ished banker, with screams of " Oh, Father!" "Oh. 1 ucle!" " What the devil?are you all insane ?" pit eonsly demanded Mr. Johnson, trying to ex tri cate himself from beneath tho happy familiy; but another was added to the group. Mr. Fink bine. undor intense ?xcit?uient, brvkQ into room, dancing, laughing, and mapping his fin gers " It's all right, Johnston, old boy ; tho Mid; dlobure specio'a on hand?eight strong boxes, all in the vault. We can defj tho world. Hur rah !" " Well," said tho Prosidcnt, extricating him self from his sister and daughter, " let us to businea*. Where is old Homefpun?'' "Here," responded the nerson inquired for, standing at his elbow, saddle-bags in hand. '? Well, sir," continued the banker, "I must apologize for the delay wo hate made you suf fer. But now. if you will produce the paper, we will close up at onc?.:' # '? Thai's my sentiment," said Mr. Jonathan, sitting down, aud deliberately unlocking his saddle-bags. The company watched his move ments with great interest. First, ho fumbled in en.ch side, thrusting his hand quite into the depths of his traveling convenience. Unsuc cessful at this, he begun unpacking upon tho floor. First came numerous pairs of country knit socks, then a red flannel shirt, after seve ral white shirts, then a fow pairs drawers; these were followed by cloth pantaloons and a night cap, and so until a tremendous heapnf wearing apparel was piled upon tho floor. He imme diately held up the bags, and shook them,when a package of papers tumbled out. These he handed to his wondering host. They provod, on examination, to be titlo deods and abstracts of title. "Ah' yes," said Mr. Johnston, you wish to invest with us. and these are the evidences of your ability. But, my dear sir. you informed us that you had cotuo of our notes you wunted specie for." '?Well, well."' replied theold man, 'I'd clean forgotten that, liut here they are;" and slowly opening a huge, well-worn wallet, he produced four old notes, amotnninsr in u/l to five dol lar*'. ?? It makes no sort of difference," ho con tinued; " I was pds.-in' through in search of a partner for life. ?s I'm dreadful lonesome, when I thought I'd just get the specie for that. That's all." The company could scarcely refr.iin from laughing An explanation followed Mr. John ston's spirits were too much relieved for him to refuse anything, and he confirmed all ho had promised before, under error. He had scarcely done so. when the boy from the Bank appeared, almost breathless, before them. '? The stnie is upset, sir, juit out of town It's full of brokers, and all are hurt but two. and they are fighting ? ?? Let them oomo, said Clinton Y. Johnston.
