MT.h V^" were Ju? c,aver* and Mary Miller I need not mention that they were lovers. Mary s father was a prosperous farmer in Connecticut, and Mary herself one of the wi.dest, most light-headed, romantie. innocent and afinctioiiate creatures ever made after the -almost divine model of mother Eve Joe a g^n^fas. impulsive youth,whose parent* had once seen flittering days, but had of late ?ven unfortunate, and fallen into comparative I?oTerty. 1 tarnier Millor, m ho drew rich, grew ambi tions. Mary was his only child. He looked to her settlement in the world as a means of his own social advancement, and had already sc lected. in his mind s eye, a suitable match for her Of course. Joc'a attentions, therefore, did not meet with his approval; and while ho wu unwilling to bo thought sordid enough to reject Joe openly, f??r his lack of means, he had sur ges twl to thai young ndventurer the propriety of absenting himself altogether from Mary s attractive presence. This done, he had assured -Mary r.f hi? resolution to disjtoso of her hand according to his own notion* ol ferninino happi ness. 1 r I need not say that the<e facts, operating upon the mind of a thoughtless, loving, ec<*en* trie, and spirited child like Mary, had a pecu liar eflcct. That very moment she determined to marry J-?e Clavers. He was evidently per ecu fed' Persecution only made him the dearer to her She liked him before, hut now t-he loved him. Jn fact, the more she thought ? f it. the more she was convinced that he was an angel and that perfect idolatry on her part w- iild only be an act of noble devotion. It Farmer Miller had been a scusiblo man. and at all disposed to study human nature, be would have adopted perhaps a vory different course towards his wayward daughter. He would have introduced his propo.-ed son-in-law nnd forbidden her. at the same time, to indulge in the slightest regard for him. The proba bility is that she would have fallen desperately in love with him at first sight, and ^iven Joe bis crn^r without further ceremony ; but Far mer Miller had a way of his own in all things, and he was satisfied that, should Mary feci disposed to play him a trick, he was quite able to manage a Roland for her Oliver. The very next morning after he had. in this manner, *4 opened his minJ, as be called it, to his daughter, he luckily happened to see Joe Clavers make his furtive entrance into the kitchen where Mary was busily at work, but not ringing as usual, for she was brooding over the parental cruelty. Farmer Miller did not permit many minutes to elapse before he had placed himself in the wash-house, which adjoined the kitchen, so that he might hear all that passed between the dis comfited lovers. He did hear the dialogue with which I have commenced this histoiitte He posse .-sed himself of the plan of the con templated elopement, and he was satisfied. ? She is going to run away, is she ?" be said to himself ?? I II teach hi,,, a lesson. I war rant ine ; and as for the little Oipsey, I'll settle her business very speedily." After tea that evening. Mary retired to her littie room her heart beating with anxiety for the approach of midnight. Her surprise may by imagined when, half an hour afterwards, she tound herself a prisoner. She tried the handle of the hick. It would not move ' What was to be done ? Could it have been fastener on her by accident' She railed for her father, and he came. ? What's the matter. Mary ?*? was his excla mation. without, however, o^enin ' the chain ber door. * My door is fast ard I can't get out!'' V i' \cry well, dear, wi< his reply; "go to bed. like a good girl, and I II open'it in the in??rning. She knew it was not of the slightest use to remonstrate. He must, by some means, have discovered her de-o^n. She could do nothing but weep and bite her lips with vexation. 1 he next thing the farmer did was to visit the barn. ,\j u,,,*!, jt h?.j a |arge Wagon-door, in which was cut for common use a smaller en trance The latter was only secured by the ordinary latch inside which was lifted, in the customary way. by thrusting a finger through a *mall hole made in the door, beneath the latch, for the purjiose Farmer Miller reuiaiaed in the barn long enough to arrange matters to suit his private purp?e. and then coming out through the sta ble that adjoined, or rather lay partly beneath it, be walked hoin*?. laughing heartily to himself He first listened at his daughter s door, an 1 finding all quiet, retired to his own room and went to sleep Just about mid nigh i, a h:>rse and wagon drew silently up. on the road, behind Farmer Mil ler s barn. Joe Clavers got stealthily out of the vehicle, jumped the fence aud crept cati tiously around to the door of the buildin" in question How happy he felt' In another moment, Mary would be his own! In the morning, she would be his darting little wife. 1 armer Mdler weuld stirin. ot course; but the farmer loved his daughter dearly. He was proud of her He would therefore, relent, for give. and bless theiu. Full of these delightful aiatcip itious. Joe thrust his linger in the hole of the barn-door to reach the latch, but Ah how he yelled with pain. A steel trap, adroitly placed on the inside, so as tocatch anv obtruding article. had snapped, and his bleed ing finger was held fast with its iron teeth! It wis a cold night, and Joe's feelings may be conjectured as ne stood there, shivering and snaking, hour after hour, unable to move from the spot, held a prisoner by the savage instru ment. his lacerated finger occasioning him ea ?(Uisite agony, and his heart fairly sinking into h-s boots with the conviction that daybreak would only expose him to the former * indigna tion and the village ridicule Just at dawn, t armer Miller chuckling over the success of his rn*e, wont down to the barn. 1 h?*re still sto->d Joe. and not far off the horse and wagon. I need not say how Joe implored pardon and promised everything that could be desired to purchase it and silence Fanner Miller and he finally closed u bargain. Joe was released Nay. more. Farmer .\filler gave him one hundred dollars, and Joe was in New York, before no>n. f/# runt? tor Iowa. As for Mary?this incident occurred two years ago, and I have just kissed her first baby. >he pleased her father, and seems to have pleased herself in consequence, quite as much. ?Sunday Tinu.t. Mr George Dexter of .Saratoga, is the keeper of a livery stable at that place. In the centre of the stable is a trap or door, which is two feet in width either way. The ' opening" communicates with the ecllar. which is some eix or seven feet deep. On Friday last, a fine gray mare wu missed from the sUble. None id the doors leading to the stable had been opened, and it was for a few moments a matter of conjecture as to where the an mat was It was o >served that the trap door, like the witch s cauldron, bad sunk But the c u e of it was not dreamed of until the missing *niuial neigh ed. when it was found that she was in the ce' lar, having fallen through the aperture two feet square ' Strange as it may appear, the animal was not injured in the least; not even a hair taken off It was necessary to tear up the flooring to get her out.

T nn Bast Tower or Simsobab?A corres pondent in China, writing from Shanghae on tho 7th of August, says : "O Vice Consul Harvey?docfi* ntrinxqHr "JW~t0 w " ,ha "annersand tho language of China are even as tho manners and the lan guage of Fan* or of London, tell me. what means that more than us tally ,k\s ilential stench ?'

It stands there, close to the walls of a orowJcd city, au intrusive in vitation to infanticide.'* kirSir David Brewster argues that the mak ing a world is waste labor, uule-s the surface is afterwards stocked with inhabitants The sun. the lava-cover moon, and even Neptune, which rolls through spaee hi perpetual arctic night are supposed by Sir David to have their inhabi tants. It is well known that the majority of our men of science are opposed to this liue of reasoning, taking the ground, that with regard to the planets ot our system, one evidence is very nearly conclusive that the earth is nearly or quite alone in being tenanted by man. Jupi ter, as its density is but 1.1, or little above that ot water, is regarded as mostly liquid ; Sat turn, which is not heavier than cork, as made up mainly of liquid and vapor?and thus all the outer planets are regarded as unfitted from their nature as well as the absence of light and heat, for the highest orders of life. The earth, on the other hand, which is the largest of the solid planets, is in the terapernte tone of the planetary system, and air. earth and water have here their most equable relation, thus adapting it. especially and exclusively, as the abode of rational creatures. A Bachelor'* Defkhce ? Bachelors are style I by married men who have put their foot into it, as only half-perfected beings, cheerless vagabonds, buthalfa pair of scissors, and many other titles are given them ; while on the other hand they extol their state as one of such per foet bliss, that a change from earth to heaven would beaomewbatof a doubtful good. Ifthey are so happy, why don't they enjoy their happi ness and hold their tongues about it? What do half the men get married for? Simply that they may have somebody, as a married mnn once said, "to pnll off their boots when they are a little balmy.' These follows are always talk ing of the loneliness of bachelors. Loneliness, indeed ' Who is petted to death with with mar riageable daughters ??invited to tea and to evening parties, and told to drop in just when it is convenient1?The bachelor. W ho lives in clo ver all hi* days, and when he dies has (lowers s rewn on his grave by the girls who couldn t entrap him ??The bachelor. Who strews flowers on the married man s grave ??his widow ?

A New Way to Fill a Cbi rcr ?A corres pondent of the Boston Journal thus refers to some movements in the New York churches ?4 The struggle that some of our feeble church es make to sustain life induces them t> adopt a style of advertising that closely resembles the flash bills of a *m ill theatre They announce queer subjects for their sermona?quaint texts ?and eceentric themes for discourses.
