A DAY 151 PETTICOATS. ?T A VODB.4T MAS. '? I couldn't think of mob thing '* ' But you muxt. My happiness depends on it. Here, pnt on the thingumbobs. and the what's his name." And iny friend Bob Style* held up before my h?--itant gaze a suit of female apparel. Hi* idea wm that I should personate his lady lore for one day, to prevent any one from sus pecting tho truth?namely, that ihe bad joined hi? in a runaway marriage party?until it should be too late for interference: that is. until the minister should have tied a knot between 'hem, that nothing but a special graut of the Legislature could untie. This schema was not actually no absurd as it appeared at first iight. Maggie Lee wa* a tall, queenly woman, with an almost masculine air, and at that time I had a very slight form, al most effeminate, that in fact there was reallv but little difference in that point. Then I hill light hair, tolerably long, and a fair complex ion Tart my hair in the middle, and put a bonnet on my head, and few persons would have suspected but f was really one of the softer sex. These accessories also gave mo quite a decided reeerablance to Maggie Lee, especially when, as in this case, the disguise was her own. Then, the day chosen for the match was an auspicious one. Maggie s lather was to drive her to 1) , a small village near which she lived, and there she was to join a sailing party d?wn D river to the grove, three miles be low. from which the party was to return in the wemng in carriages. Our plan was, that I should be in waiting in the village, and should go on the boat with the sailing party, while Maggie aftor leaving her father. should slip off with Bob Styles across the couutrv. At last, I got dressed, and presented myself before Maggie Lee. blushing a great deal ? I believe, feeling very much pinched about the waist, and with an uncomfortable consciousness that my?my?shirt sleeves were too short, or wanting altogether. Everything finished in the way of toilet Bob Styles took me into his light wagon?drne me over to I) . by a secluded route and left me at the betel, where the sailing party w.?s to assemble. Several of the picnicers were al ready there, aud they greeted my cavalier cor dially. (everybody knew Bob Styles,) asking it he was going with them, Ac. lie told them he was sot. Pressing business engagement", you know, and all that sort of thing. i>euced soiry. I can t go though. I bad just time to brin^ Miss Lee over, and now 1 m off. Mr. Bimby this is Mi<* Lee Mi.-s Witbergall. Miss Lee." and be rattled off a long string of brief introduc tions. which convinced me that but few of the company were acquainted with the young lady whom 1 was personating?a very foriunate thing for the preservation of my d'isguse. Mr. Bimby. a tall, legal-looking man. with a ho<.k nose, an I eye-glass and puffy hair, seemed to be prepossessed with my p rut utile, and I overheard bim whisper to Bob Styles, as he went out : ?? > ice looking girl, that Miss Lee " " ^ e?. answered Bob, with a mischievous glanee at me " she is a nice girl, though a lit tle go-abead sometime* Keep a little look out on her. will you ?then, lowering bis voice?'? not a bad match tor you. old fellow : she is rich." '? Is ah?s aaii Mr. Bimby. his interest deep ening ?' On ray honor." replied B.?b '? Forty thou sand dollars in her owu right Day day and he was gone. Maggie L?o. artful creature that she was. had told her father that the sailing p:irtp wa? to assemble at another hotel, and'thither be had ;nkru her. Having business in D be left her there merely saying that he would send the carriage fur her at 11 o'clock. Hho, like a dutilul daughter. kis?* t him. bid him g.?*i bye. and before ho hid gone a hundred rods, took a seat in Bob Style* light wagon, whi<*b bad driven up to the back door as old Lee s e<irrii?ge drove away from the front, and the oi l story ot head strong love and prejudiced age was enacted again. As for us. of the pie-nic excursion, we h*d a delightful sail down the grove, but somehow, I C'-uid not en jo v it as much as I ought to have done. When I walked on board the boat 1 felt awkward as if everybody was looking at ine 1 found Mr Bimby. a* I had suspected, a young and rising la-ryer, mighty in Blacksto'ne. in hi? opinion iie insisted on paying for my ticket the boat was a regular excursion pack et and purchasing enough oranges, pears and eandies. to set up a street stand. Four or five time* I was on the point of swearing at his im pudent othciousnesi, but bit my tongue juit in time to prevent the exposure But it was not with him that I found my role the hardest to play. So ; the young ladies were the difficult ones to deceive. Fw instance, there was one among t^em a beautiful girl of seventeen, just re turned from boarding school, who bad not seen Maggs# Lee for tbruc ywrs. Of courie *be was J?lighted to see me. when she found out that I was Maggie whioh. by the way, did not occur until alter we had started She threw herself in'o my arms, pulled my veil aside, and kissed me half a doieu times, iu a manner that made my finger ends tingle for on hour. It **ry nice, but if 1 had been in yropiin person*. I would have liked it better As it *?*. I felt as if I was " obtaining goods under false pretences. and that lawyer Bimby might issue a warrant fo/my arrest, on that ground, at any m<>ment. A whole knot of crinoline then surrounded me, on the upper deck of the boat, to the utter exclusion and consequent disgunt of Mr. Bimby and the other gentlemen. 1 kept very quiet. ? nly speaking mouosyllables in a falsetto voice; but the others?Lord bless you ! how they gab bled ! I nder a strict promise of seoresy, the little boarding-school maiden, who bad kissed me so affectionately, revealed all her love af fairs. aud also became unpleasantly confiden tial about other matter*?innocent enough in themselves, but not customarily talked of be tween ladies and gentlemen 1 was terribly embarrassed, but it would rod do to give it np then As soon as my trick ?bould become known. Bob Styles1 trick would also ome out; and as news of that kind travels tast in the country, he and his lady love would be telegraphed and followed before they eould reaeb Philadelphia, where the Styles family lived, and where the knot was to be tied The river breexe wan very fresh where we sat. and 1 noticed that several of the ladies were glancing uneasily at mc. I couldn't di vine the reason, until Jenuie. my little friend from boarding-*-bool. laid her face dangerously cbse to mine, and whisjiered *4 My dear Mag gie. your drr** is blowing up terribly high? your ancle* will lie town talk with all the gen tlemen *" Nor was I conscious of having a very small foot for a wan. and had donned a pair of open work storking* which came nearly up to my waist, with a pair of garters borrowed from a servant girl in all of whi>*b toggery my "'run ning gear" looked qaite respectable , but the idea of the gentlemen talking about my ancles, and ot being eautioned thus by a young girl wbo would have been frightened to if I bad told her the same thutg yesterday was too much for me 1 buret in a sort of strangulated laugh, which 1 could only <-heck by swallowing Lair of my little filagree I arc edged handker chief The young ladiee all looked at me in apparent astonishment at such a voice, and I wanted to laugh all the more. Fortunately. Mr Bimby came to my rescue nt the moment, And edged himself m among the crinoline *' May I tit here he asked, pointing t? a low stool near me ?' Certainly," I simpered in my high fal?<Mto. '' Ah. thank yon.*' said Bimby?with a la?k aoiuical air wbteb nauseated me. as uoming from one man to another?" you are as kind as you are fascinating !M *? Yon flatter an "s ?' I ' No, indeed ; praise of you canndt *?e fisrtery, Miss Lee " "Oh, air, really, you are a very naughty man. I said, in the moat feminine tone I could command. Ho cast a languishing glance at me through hi* black lace veil, and 1 fairlv begun to fear for his '-feelings." We -toon arrived at the grove and found our b*nd?engaged beforehand?awaiting us. Of course, dancing wm the first amusement, and .lawyer Bimby led ine out for a Schottisohe. It wa? hard at first for 0?e to take the lady's part in my dance, but I soon got accustomed to it. When a waltz was proposed. I resolved to have a little amusement at the expense of the un fortunate Biuiby. 1 had first made him purposely jealous, by dancing with two other young fellows, ono of whom 1 knew, in my own charactcr, but who never suspectcd me a* Maggie Lee. This young man, who wa* a great woman killer?a sort of eaay, deril may care rascal,' who made the ladies run after him, by his alternate wrath of action coolness of protestation?I selected to play off against my legal admirer. I allowed him to hol<l me very closely and occasionally looked at hiiu with a half fascinating expres sion. When we stopped dancing, he led lue to my seat, keeping his arm around my waist, and I permitted it. Having thus stirred Bimby up to feats of wrathful valor. I asked one of the gentlemen to direct the musicians to play a walti. Bim by came immediately. " Ahem?a Miss Lee. shall I?a. have the honor of?a?trying a waltz with you ?" I smiled a graceful acquiescence and we commenced. [TO BR contixped J THE CR ADDOi-K MI KUKK. It will be remembered, says the Cincinnati Commercial, of Thursday, that, on the 2?>lh ot August. ISjit. Paschal D. Craddock. who re sided six miles from Louisville, on the Bards town road, w;?> found dead, a short distance from hid residence. The body had threeathots in the thigh, one of the ball!" pissing through. None of these wounds could have caused death. The neck was broken, and the face and bead mutilated by bogs, the ears having been eaten off. Craddock wa3 on horseback when he was shot, and it was supposed that, after ho was shot, he fell off his horse and broke his neck. The horse was found standing by the body. Two pieces of rope. having blood on them, wero found near by. The verdict of a jury was that ' Craddock came to his death by violence." There had been three indictments pending against Craddock on chargcs of felony, but he had succeeded in continuing the trials on three differeut terms of court He was much feared in the neighborhood, as it was alleged that he was connected wifha gsngofcounterfeiters and horse thieves. He had been a wealthy man A short time previous, a meeting was held in Jefferson county, which was attended by the in.j^t respectable citizens, at which resolutions were passed demanding that Craddock and two others leave Kentucky within six months The time had just expired when he was killed A negro was arrested on the charge of killing him. An opinion was prevalent that some of Crad dock s gang. (those who had beeu associated with hiui.) had slain hiin, fearing that when hi* trials took place they might become in voh ed Others wore under the impression that the friends of those who had acted with Crad dock. and were sent to the penitentiary mainly on Craddock'* evidence, had committed the deed The mystery is solved as follows : John Miller, of Bullitt county. Ky., whose character is re|K>rted disreputable, in Louis ville, yesterday gave himself up to the author ities. ownicSsiiig that certain parties offered three thousand dollars to anyone who would nut Craddock through;'" that he and eight others accepted the bribe, when the plot was in^de to take Crnddork's life. Five of the pur<y lay iu ambush?a cough being the signal lo fire at Craddock as he passed by. Miller says he tired in the air Warrants Were issued for all parties, several of whom were arrested, including Col Alleu and brother. Austin Hub bard. ami Joe Wright, of Bullitt county; Ste phen Baird, of Shelby county, and Fred Kikes, of Jefferson county. Others are also impli cated Miller's story is nut fully credited. Owmbchrs or Londo.v?There are upwards of Mini omnibuses in London, and of this num ber 595 are the property ot a single and most foreign, proprietary?the London General Om nibus Company. The .*>95 omnibuses ran, in the week euding October 31, not less than 222 779 miles, or nearly ten times the circum ference of the globe, and they carried not lew than Wfl.000 passengers. The vehicles arc worked by 6.22s horses, more than the whole of the British cavalry cn ?;agcd at Waterloo. A week's allowance of ood for the horses oonsistsof 430,2ft< pounds of chopped hay, clover and straw, equal to 242 loads, and 623.253 pounds of oats, barley and bouns, or 2.300 quarters, and 175 loadsof straw arc required for the bedding of the horses. Lach horse runs on an average twelve miles Cr day. The daily cost of the rations of each rse is rather more than 2s.

It adords me pleasure to state, that by the aid of your optometer this dirtieultj has l>een happily obviated, so that the tilasse* yon furnished me are decidedly the l<est adapted to my eyes of any I have ever yet"used.

I consider, moreover, Mr. Tobias ftilly qualified to determine the focus of the eye.both by his optical knowledge and experience, and by menus of his optometer. In addition, I car further state that Mr. Tobus has sappHed some of my pa tients with Glasses, to th^r^od my satisfaction Physician and Sergeon, Berlin: Meml>er of the Royal College ofSurgeons, England; Mem lie r of the Medical Societv of l<ondon.and of the Pathological Society of New York; late Sur geon of tno Royal Orthopaedic Institution of Manchester, England, and Surgeon of the B.
