Wo published a few days ago the letter of a wif? addressed to a young lady who had offered a correspondence with her husband. A lady in 81. Louie thus writes to the St. Louis Republi can Mr EntTOR I was reading the " spicy cor respondence" in your paper, yesterday, and it reminded me of something that happened to a married man some three years since. Now, I never wrote anything tor the papers in all my life, we know better,) so I will state the facta as I know them to occur, and you can put them in ship-shape. The gentleman's wife had good reason to suspect him of being partial to ladies in general, and to other men's wives in partic ular, so she laid a trap to natch him. She wrote him a letter in a disguised band, telling him that?she had long loved him in secret, and #he had often been tempted to write to him. but that the fear of her husband and his wife had prevented her domestic relations, that she could no longer resist She hoped he would not think her a bold, bad woman, for addressing him first and soliciting an interview. If he only knew how long and how ardently she had loved him. he would pity if he could not love her?and n good deal more in the same strain?concluding ny requesting him to meet her on a ccrtain bridge at 8 o'clock at night, where she would be, disguised as a negress. She signed herself Mary. The evening came, and with it came the gen tleman home at an early hour, and in the best of humors. He split w?>od, which he had never been known to do before, made himself very useful, kissed his wife several times (something unusual), l??t could not wait for supper, a? he had urgent business down town. As soon as he left, his wile disguised herself and went to the place ap]H?inted and behold ' there he sat, perched upon the bridge, his um brella over him, (for it was rainy and dark.) ?he passed by. and he caught hold of her, and asked if it was Mary. She told him yes, when he clasped her in his arin?. gave her a sweet kiss, and then put his baud up to her head to see if it might be a negress?the idea having ftruck him that possibly he was hoaxed. Find ing the head all right, he insisted an knowing who she was. After due hesitation, she told him the name of a beautiful married lady. ?? Is it possible that you are Mr. 's wife ?" " It it even so,'7 she replied, and hid her head in his bosom and pretended to cry bitterly, whereupon he soothed her. kissing a great many times, and telling her she was the sweet est little woman he had ever kissed, and if he bad only as sweet a wife he would be perfectly happy. In the meantime they had 44 ad journed"' to one side of the road, and he bad eat down on a very sharp stump, taking Mary in bis lap; and you may be sure she did not spare him any. Finally. Mary concluded she must go home, and insisted on his meeting her ?>n Monday, if he knew any good place Oh, yes. he knew the best kind of a place, and went on to tell her all about it; which was just what she wanted to know Then he in sisted on her going with him to his office. On their arrival he asked her for her shawl to hang up at the window. She handed it to him, politely bowing and telling hiut she would cer tainly meet hnu on Monday. If you cannot imagine how m?-anly he looked. I cannot tell you. I only know he complained a good deal about that?lish stump being so sharp. Be so kind as not to let any one see this. A certain person will know who wrote it if he sees the handwriting. Fa35Y A. WAKING UP Tilt M KOXi PASSENGER. A few days ago a person entered a store, not a hundred miles from the old State House, and inquired eagerly for the proprietor. "There he is, said the salesman, pointing to a shrewd but quiet-looking individual, who was warming himself over the stove. ?' You are Mr." (we will call it Jones) said the visitor. Yes, sir."' " I learn that you suspended last week," re joined the anxious inquirer. " Indeed."' said the proprietor. '? Yes. and I must inform you that 1 am come from the mercantile agency of So-and-'o to inquire about your assets and lia bilities." 44 You don't say so, ' returned the proprietor, with a little opening of his eyes and a slight twitching of his moum, hut otherwise with an unchanged countenancc. ??Yes. I have,'' said the visitor. *4 We are obliged to be very particular in our inquiries and 1 was sent expressly te ascertain the exect condition of your affairs How much are your liabilities*'' '? Well." replied Mr Jones, stroking his up per lip. in the deepest thought, as though en gaged in gue<sii g a conundrum, "Well, take them altogether, .ts I haven t paid all my Jan uary bills, I shoul l say that my total liabilities might?possibly?be?five? hundred dollars'" "Five hundred, five hundred.' muttered the astonished visitor, taking out his p<per and pencil, and surveying the store filled with valuable goods '' Now. I say, Mr. Jones, is not that setting it rather low 4 By no means.' said Jones, "it is very high; I don't think I owe above three hundred, but I thought I'd call it five, to make it seem more respectable." ? Oh. and what in goodness name may be your asset*'" ?'Well, without meddling with my real es tate. or this stock of goods, I xhould say my ready means were about Jour thousand dot 9 I iara. The anxious inquirer's eyes stuck out con siderably. and his briskness of manner forstok him. as he murmured, "Then you haven't suspended?" 'No'' The clerks could stand it no longer, and the rery walls shook with their merriment. Apol ogies were made and received, but they were ot no use. The visitor could'nt keep up, and when last seen, he was standing down Wash ington street, under a press of sail, but not seeming to care what sort of a coat he had on. ?Button J'oU. Wll.Mft o.f Dyino.?There is something un natnral in the painful and extravagant sym rathy with which the dying are surrounded, t is n'>t such a gloomy thing to die. The world has pleasant places, and I would hear in my last hour the voice, and the birds, and the chanee music I may have loved, but better music and voices of more ravishing sweetness, and far pleasanter places are to do found in Heaven, and 1 cannot feel that it is well or natural to oppress the dying with the distress ing wretchedness of common sorrow. I would let go cheerfully from the world. I would have my friends comfort me, and smile on me, and feeling willing that I should be released from sorrow, ami perplexity, and disease, and go up?now that my race finished joyfully to my reward. And if it btt allotml to me as I Eray it will, to di*in the summer tine. 1 would e borne out iu Ihe open *kj, and have my pillow lifted, that 1 might see the glory of the setting sun. and pass away like him with undi minished light to another world. A llnm-ll i.noro Attempt to Ottraor a Yorstt Lady.?Last evening about 9 o'clock, as Miss Miller wa- going to her houie in Franklin avenue. *he wa? suddenly seised by two andaeiows villains near the arch over whi-h Montague street lead* to the ferry, and would have keen violently treated had not a Mr. William* of No 4.i Smith street, and an other gentleman, whose name we could not learn, rushed to her as<i>tauce. One of the ruffian* brandished a knife over the young lady's head, threatening to kill her if she op {> ?sed their wiehes, while hi* companion gagged ler with a poeket-han Iken hief. The fellows seeing they were likely to be overpowered by the two gentlemen, look-to their heels and And. Mia Miller w .v? taken to a Myrtle avenue e ir and sent h"jp? fu -barge ot the conductor. Th3 radians dtritbtles* belong to a gang of villains wno infe?t t|)S lower portion of Rrooklyn. and wh'? attempt to violate the person ot every un rroteeted female they come acroes at night-? .Y- F. Tritium TRAVELING COMPANION*. " Be careful whom you travel with. Two of our rational follies are a carelessness in giving letters of introduction to anybody for anybody, and an amiability in ' hitching teams ' with any individual during a journey, Sharp and shrewd as we are. there are twenty instances in this country to one in England, of a gentleman's being robbed by his traveling companion. Take an instance. Mr. Keen Cute, from Arkansas, is going to the North?he is one of your wide awake sort?nobody can get around him?any body that can ' make shucks ' off of him, is welcome to the proceeds. Finds steamboat dull?gentlemanly hotel-thief?' oh, so very gentlemanly,' of course, bran-new hat, black clothcs from head to foot?quite adesirable man to chat with. But Mr. Cute is wide awake all the while?don't catch him gambling with stray acquaintances or making a trade with them. Acquaintance progresses?gentlemanly travel er talks about his friends?knows lots of Mr. Cutc's?is found by Cuto talking at different times to congressmen, legislators, and all that. Get to city?room together?next day gentle manly friend missing, and with him Cute's rea dy money. Cute very much astonished, his chance friend waa ' so very much the gentle man.' " Half a dozen times within as many months, the public has been entertained with accounts of unprincipled wretches who were compelled, on board of Mississippi steamboats, to marry young ladies with wlom they had eloped It is all of a piece with the Cute business t'n thinking gentleman?Mr. Greon?has lady put under his charge by anybody?perhaps by gen tlemanly stranger, who, in the confidence style, asks him just to see her ashore when they arrive at Snagville. Mr. Green rather fascinated by his young protegee?moro or less Very dull on board steamboat, passengers tired to death. Mr. Green prosecutes intimacy and meets with bewildering success. Passengers continue to be very dull. Mr. Green continues to advance. Passengers wouldn t mind a little scandal to t>ass the time. Green's young lady is observed >y other ladies to cry a great deal in very con spicuous parts of the cabin, and suddenly muffle up her face and sob, or else run. Lady passen gers full of pity, conclude at onoe that Green is ? a wretch '?ask girl if no isn't?girl boo-boos. Grand indignation scene?gentlemen passen gers hold meeting?noble impulsive hearts, let out their fine feelings?high-toned moral cap tain looks virtuously and grimly sagacious, winks to passengers, takes Mr. Green aside and bullies him about girl. Green turns blue. Captain calls him ? villian ' before folks, and or ders a marriage forthwith. Green declines. Captain produces two revolvers a bowie-knife, and a clergyman. Green 'caves ' and consents. Young lady overwhelmed. ladies overwhelmed, evervbody overwhelmed?especially the cap tain sclerk. whoexchanges winks with the bride when unobserved by the rest of the party. All cheerful?captain stands champagne?gentle men joke Green?ladies all sympathy to bride, dinner and report in newspapers. Green turns up as widower three days after among the Pel icans. Bride has run away with porte-inonnaie and shirt-studs. " Of a truth, this is a great world we livo in, and abounding in true sympathy, excessive warm-heartedness and chivalry, which meet with their reward." Donnelly's Death.?"One who was pres ent" at the hanging of Donnelly, writes to the Newark Mercury as follows : The story which seems to be passing current in regard to the alleged intoxication of young Dcnnellv, who was recently executed at Free hold. requires some notice, particularly as it has been made the cause of complaint against his custodians and spiritual advisers. It is now alleged and received as a fact, that just before being led out to the gallows, he drank '? four glasses of brandy,"'and that he passed into eternity in a state of drunkenness, lie was executed at two o'clock, and during the morning, took WTeral doses of morphine. When led out of the prison, he evidently was affected by the morphine, but there was not the slight est appearance of drunkenness. In the com mencement of his address, the effect of the drug and the terrible excitement of the occa sion. prevented that coherency of remark which characterized the greater part of his speech. When he came to analyze the testimony given against him on the trial, be had entire and perfect possession of himself His argu ment was marked by its ingenuity, its logical compactness, and its methodical arrangement, but when this was finished, it became simply a matter of utterance to prolong the brief mo ments of life, and those disconnected ejacula tions were produced by the awful moment, aud were nut the effects of liouor or drugs It is not true, either, that he charged Smith, the proprietor of the Sea View House, with the murder. He alluded to tlx; evidence of the bloody footprints in the passage, and to show that they .-hould not have contributed to his conviction, he referred to the fact that he was not in that passage with bare feet on the fatal morning, but that Smith, according to his own confession was. From this arise# the story that he accused Smith of the murder. Hit Him Again.?The Alexandii t Sentinel, quoting Mr. Henry Winter Davis" complimen tary notice of the " whole combined press of the country,'' says: The editors of the newspnpers will feel very sorry when they read the above,?very sorry. It reminds us of an anecdote: When Wiliam Penn was Governor of Pennsylvania, in com pany with a friend, he took shelter from a storm in the shop of a eomb-makcr. The man was a violent foul-speaking man. and conducted him self with such impropriety as todraw upon him a rebuke. He was very indignant and with an air of great consequcnce, informed his visitors that gurely they did not know who he was. "/ am a justice of the peace ' " said he. The com rade of the Governor quietly remarked, as he pointed to Penn,44 my friend makes such thing? as thee." If Mr Davis has rut Ins teeth, he will be able to make the application and to profit by it. Making an Assignment ix New York.? The Syracuse (N. Y.) Journal tells the fol lowing : A man not a thousand miles from Syracuse, having made an assignment some years since, was called upon by a New York creditor to whom he exhibited his books, and with whom he proposed to settle at fifty cents on the dollar. The New York man replied, "How can you pay fifty cents on the dollar ' Your assets will not pay over forty cents.'' ' Well, never inind thaU"' says the unfortu nate assigner, "if my assets will not pay the fifty cents. I will make up the deficiency outof my own p<icket." Ci me ron Drithkenxes*.?An exchange recommends the following as an infallible cure lor beastly intoxication : Whenever a |>erson is in a stupid and insensible state from the abuse of intoxicating drinks, lay him on his right side, elevate his left arm, and pour cold water down it slowly. Before a common pitcher full ; can be emptied, the man will walk, perfectly ( sober. 1 | \rr Miss K K.
