I THE WIFE'S DOWER. ? T A KKTIRKI) ATTOR.NET. Everybody who knew John Gordon, knew him to b? one of the meanest and most contain p tibla men that ever waa permitted to walk the aarth. Hi* brother Peter was not a whit better; so that it would appear that meanness ran in the blood of the family. John waa pretty well off so far as this world's pood* were concerncd. Ilia property was all invested in a building which had cost him about thirty thonaand dollar*. He did not marry till he waa forty, probably from the fear of incur ring unnecessary expense, and when, finally, lie did take a wife, it waa only as he would hare taken him a housekeeper?a servant. Mrs Gordon waa a poor woman, and had been obliged to work very hard for a living. Prob ably she mairied on purely prudential consid erations, for she could not possibly have loved such an abortion of a man as John Gordon. She took g ?nd care of her husband, treated him better th.?n he deserved, and waa in every re speet an obedient and faithful wife. All she received in return was the meagre support her husband's bouse afforded her. When they bad been married some three years John was taken sick, and lingered along for a year, during which time his wife was an excellent and devoted wife. Her whole aim seemed to be to discharge her duty to her lord with fidelity, Stie had made a bargain with him. and she performed her partof thecontract with scrupulous exactness One day I beard that John Gordon was dead. 11 was small loss to the community, and I could not think of pitying bia wife, for her lot would certainly be ameliorated by his departure. She would be entitled to one-third of the income of bis real estate, which, for a poor woman, as sho had been, and having no luxurious tastea to gratify, would bo a princely stipend. I neither thought nor beard any more of John Gordon or his wife for two months, when h woman appeared at my office and introduced hersclt as the latter. ?' Mine is a very bad case, Mr. Docket," said she seating herself by my side. " Indeed, ma lame. I thought you were very comfortably provided for. You have one-third of the income of your husband's estate, or about a thousand dollars a years." ?? It seems I am not to have this, 'shereplied gloomily. ?' Not to have it ?'' '? Peter Gordon has taken possession of the estate, declaring it belongs to him. He says my husband sold it to him a lew weeks before he died'' " How could that be ?" ' Peter showel me the deed, and saya it has been recorded." *? Doe* he ' So much the better for you, madame. The law gives one-half of his per sonal estate " " But he aold it for one dollar,'* interrupted Mrs Gordon " Ha could not sell it without your concur rence. Did you release your right to dower in the premises "No, ?ir; Peter 9ays I did, though, and abows me my naiae, duly witnessed, on the deed " 4* Did you sign it ?" *' No, air." II Then it is a forgery.'* " I suppose it it. ' "You are confident you did not sign your name to the deed >" " I am very sure I did not, and for a very good reason." ?' How's that ?" " I cannot write; I never even wr*te my i name I was brought up in the country, i where girls did not get so mu;h schooling as now. My folks were very poor, and I never had a 1 chance to gp to school," replied Mrs. Gordon. 1 with someconfasion. " Did your husband know that yon cauld not i write?" ?'No; I never told him.*' I dismissed her with the request that she would call the next day 1 went at once to < the Registry of Deeds, and found that Mrs. 1 Gorlwutoad told a straight story. Her miser- i able, contemptible husband had given his property to bis brother in his last days, so as < to cheat his wife, who had cared for him in 1 health, and nursed him in siokness, of her just l claim upon his estate ' 1 He was a villain! I need not say I felt a i deep interest in the ca*e of my client, and ' resolved to bring matters to an issue at ouce. \ The next d%v. when she called, she directed me I to her sister, by whom it could be proved that I Mrs Gordon could not write bername; who ' bad seen her make her mark often, within a i very short time. < The person who professed to have witnessed ( the signature of Mrs. Gordon, was a clerk in the office of Peter My first move was to tike steps to arrest him on a charge of fraud, and ] to sue his employer for my client's share of ; the rents, which he ha 1 just collected, and which he had refused to pay over to her When I had ppx*ec led thu9 far, I received a visit from Peter Gordon. , " What do you mean, sir Le ceked rather i sourly. '? 1 mean to get justice for the widow." < " Her husband was worth nothinz when he died" " Hut his wife has one-third interest in his real estate.*' "It wsi sold to me; ani she signed a?vay ker right to dower " Did sh-'*' "Certaiuly she did " Did you m her sign ?" ?? To be sure I did , so did my clerk." "There is a warrant out for the arrest of , your elerk ; and I have some hopes that be will turn Statu s evidence, and convict his princi pal." He started back with astonishment and ter ror " I?I don t understand you he stammered out ?? Don't trouble yourself about it, Mr. Gor don. you will understand it all in good tiuie." " For <iod s sake, don't arrest my clerk. He w ill be the ruin of me,*' groaned he. " You should ha\e thought of that before,'' I said " You don't ineau to say that everything isn t all right about my brother's afiairs ' He cause. if it isn 11 will make it right, you know," he whined iu supplicating tones. " You say you saw Mrs Gordon fiijn that deed \\ ell?ny; exactly; but I suppose she tinned it.' " You don t know she didn t." " How should I know " She can t write' She never even wrote her name iu her life ! " Gracious I prea el the ras<-al closely, and made him acknowledge that his elerk had signed the uame for a consideration. I would have caused both of them to be sent to the State Prison, it Mr*. Gordon had not begged me spare them. As it wa.; I secured the entire iacorne of the estate foi my cHent, and charged my bill to Peter, who was but too glad to pay it. Cj^Evcrytbing to be known about the Prin- ] cess Koyal of England, recently married to the Prince of Prussia, is just now of interest. 'I he , foMowing anecdote is authentic, though never j before in print: "A few years pgo. a gentleman named . Brown bad occasion to be at Windsor some time*. and the Princess was accuatomed to Sreet him with, " How do you do, Brown ?" | [er mother rebuked her for the familiarity, | and finally said, "If ever I hear you addressing that genMeman * > disrespectfully again. I shall | instantly order you to bed." The next time he j appeared the Princess said, "Ah. how do yon do, I Brown, rood morning. Brown, and good night, too. for 1 am going to bed"?and to bed she went; bat in an hoar or two her kind-hearted mother relented, went to her, and by a little admonition affectionately administered, oured her more effectually than by bedding her."? - ? ' ' 1 ? ? VOL. XI. WASHINGTON, D. C., MONDAY, MARCH I, 1858. NO. 1,594. ?? ? ? THE RECTOR AND HIS ('IRATE. Allusion* have been made in oar retent English intelligence, to the case ot scan. mot?. (great scandal) brought against the Rov. Mr. Uent of Liverpool. The case hu been con cluded. and Mr. Gent'scbaracter triumphantly vindicated. As the case illustrates a common failing in human nature, and as a famous Liv erpool preacher is concerned in it, we copy from an English journal the following article, in explanation of the affair which has made so much stir ou the other side of the Atlantic : The Hev Dr. M'Neile had a curate, the Rev. Mr. Gent. Mr. Qent preached wall? some people who know Dr. M'Neile say, too well, lie became popular with a large por tion of the oongregation; indeed, a controversy arose among the dock ou the respective merit* of the rector and the curate. It was discovered by some persons, that this Mr. Gent did not live with great decorum. Ilia discharged ser vant woman carried queer stories to the right quarters, after the manner of dismissed demes nes. A sexton, with whom he was not in favor, discovered that he drank the wine provided for the communion. A schoolmaster, with an in efficient school, reported against by the Gov ernment inspector, regretted, right and left, that Mr. Gent smelt so strongly alwnys of alco holic liquor. Some of the ladie? of the congre gation who had made the acquaintance of the dismissed girls, were shocked that Mr. Gent, while playing with bia child, should have tickled the nur^e. Is it necessary to describe the rise and progress of a scandal ? There was nothing tangible?that would have spoiled the plot; but something terribly vague came to be generally and incessantly talked about. Dr. M'Neile went away for recreation ; in his ab sence, be received many letters, represeuting that Mr. Gent was an immoral man, of scanda lous life; and though, on his return, the doctor found that Mr. Gent's three sermons per week had been of a very powerful character, it was clear to him that be could not remain in asso ciation with Mr. Gent. The accusing persons ?dismissed domestics?were taken to the Doc- j tor's inquisitorial study. The schoolmaster re- j vealed everything. The Doctor sent for Mr. \ Gent; and, to abbreviate the narrative, told ' the reverend gentleman that?he must go. ' Mr. Gent denied all the charges. Answer? , But you must go. '* I will appeal to the Biih op.'" said Mr. (font; and so he did. The result was. that Madam Rumor, which had played such tricks with Mr Gent's char- < acter, could not, when put to the proof, sustain her allegations. Mr. Gent, it appeared, was a close student, a benevolent man. a kind hus band. a fond father, and a good preacher. The | people of Liverpool have declared Madam Ru- I mor to be a liar and slanderer, and as a prac- ! tical proof of their conviction they have raised ? a handsome sura of money for Mr. Gent, and t propose presenting Mrs. Gent with a substan- J tial testimonial of their sympathy. Too Ooon to bi L >9t.?The following good j one from the Memphis Bulletin is too good to I < be lost: Viftgt Un.?We have a friend?or, with the J . emphasis of the inimitable Toodles. we have a 1 friend, who for the nonce we shall cull "the Major,'' though his rijjht to the prefix is some- \ what questionable. Now the Major has had, f through life, one besetting sin, and that is an . unconquerable love of a certain game of cards t known as vmsrt un, which is the French for I twenty-ono. This well known game, a fat wife ? and a large family are about trie only weak- 8 nessaa that can be laid to the Major's charge, v Huff often he has been married the record 11 sayeth not, nor is it important. Suffice it that | during over thirty odd years of the Mnjor'a t wedded life, aa his wealth increased and his j hairs became gray, one after another, in regu- f, lar succession his board was honored with the f presence of miniature additions of himself, [, until the number had reached twenty, when the ( Major concluded things had gone far enough, i and should be stopped. But they didn't, as d the Major in due time found out, for be bad ' salculated without consulting his wile.

J J Dr. Mackay has given in bis ''Transatlantic Sketches"' an opinion upon the appearance of Philadelphia, which does not at all please the press of that city. Here it is : I '? Philadelphia, the second city of the Union, with a population of G00,000 souls, is neither attractive nor imposing. It stands upon a level with the waters of the Delaware, aud does not contain within its whole boundaries an eini- I nence one-third the height of Ludgat? Hill. I It contains a very large number of churches and chapels, but none of them is distinguished by architectural beauty of dome, tower or I spire. The whole place is formal, mean, pre cise and unattractive, leaving no impression I upon the rniud of the traveler but that of a wearv sameness and provoking rectmgularity. i Except in Chesuut street, (the ccn're of busi- I 1 netw,) and Walnut street, (the fashionable quarter,} all the streets of the city are built on ' same model. The same third-rate houses I ?of the kind which the Englishman sees in ' Birmingham and Manchester?seem to rise on I j every side, all of one color and of one shape ; I , all with green Venetian blinds on the upper, I I and with white blinds on the lower stories ; all equally prim, dull and respectable. The foot I pavements are of the same color as the houses, I I neither drab nor red, but a mixture of both.'' | IdTA southern gentleman owiied a slave, a I | y^ry intelligent fellow, who was a Universalist. 1 Oo one occasion tie illustrated the intellectual character of bis religion in the following man- | ner : - A certain slave had obtained a licence of the Baptists to preach. He was holding forth in the presence of many of his colored brethren atone time, when he undertook to describe the I process of Adam's creation. Said be, "When God made Adaui. he stoop down, scrape up a little dirt, wet it alittle, warm it a little in < he hands and squeeze it in do right shape, aid and den lean it up agaist de fence to dry ?" " 'Top dere!" said our Universalist darkey. I "You s.?y dar are de lustest man eber made ?" j "Sartan said the preacher. ??Den," said other, "jes tell a feller whar dat ' ar fence come trom ! ' 4 Hush* ' said the preacher, "two more ques tions like dat would spile all de foology in de ( world.'' {y A man named Streiger, near Daven- , |>ort, Iowa, was last week in the woods, chop ping a heavy limb from a prostrated tree. The 1 limb struck him on the back of the neck as it fell, and bent his body down so forcibly as to break his bark. A portion of the limb pene trated his thigb. making a terrible wound. The injury to his spine paralysed all the lower fart of the holy In this condition, and far rom help, he used his axe as a lever, and pried off the limb, so that be oould get out of the t -ap lie then dragged himselt by the arms? his lower limbs being entirely paralysed?a quarterof a mtle through the snow, till he oame within view of the people at the houee.

HENRY A. WISE. Pktkr?bor?, Ootober 21,1854. About five years ago, I obtained from Mr. Toh;as. in W ashmgtoia, a pair of Glasses for the spectacle* which 1 used, and found them of great assist.--.nce to my decaying vision; aud my opinion of him ia, that he ia skillful in the preparation of Glasses tor eyes not too far gone to be benefitted by such aid.

Mr. John Tobias, having furnished me with Glas ses. by which 1 have been greatly aided,'.my visiob having guttered greatly from reading at ni?..l<t in my earlior life,) it affords me the highest pleasure to say that I consider him a skillful practical optician, anJ well prepared to aid those who ma* :te^d hia professional services. WM. B. Rot'ZIE, Elder ol the Methodist Conference. Wilmington, N. C., June i7, !8M. MR. J.Tobias? Dear Sir : I am happy tossy that the Spectacle* which I obtained from )i>u last week *re entirely satisfactory. From an lnequtliij in the visual rangeof my eyes, 1 have heretofore found great difficulty in getting glasses of the proper focj?l dis tances. It aMords me pleasure to state, that by the an! of your optometer this (.lifticultv has l>een happily obviated, so that the Glasses you furnished me are decidedly the (test adapted to my eyes of any I have ever yet used. Very respectfully yours, R. B. DRANF. Rector of St. James* Parish. Having been induced b* a friend to visit the estab lishment of Mr. Tobias lor the purp<we of trying his glasses | was furnished with a pair slightly colored l>!ne,whice have atlorded me inor* relief and gratifi cation than any I have ever tried. My sight, origin al!* very good, was injured by writing and reading a) njght, frequently to a very lata hour: but with the nia of these glasses I can study almost as late as ?ver, and that too without the pain I have previous ly suflered. JOHN WILSON, I Ate Commissioneer Gan'l Land Oihce. D#c. 11,18V>. 1 have used Mr. Tobias's Spectacles for throe or four months,and take great pleas'ure in saying that 1 am much pleased witii them. I have been much benefited by thein. GEO. P. 8CAHBURGH. May 5th, 1856. I was recommended to Mr. John Tobias a? a skilfnl optioian; and as I have eves of rein&rkallie peculiari ty, I was gratified to find that Mr. Tobias setmed to comprehend thein by inspection and some slight measurement, and he has made me apair of Specta cles that suits me admirably. A. P. BUTLER. July 11, 1856. WAeiilNGTOW, Anc.R. 1E65. Having been for years under the necessity ol' hav two sets of glasses?or.ef?r use in daylight, a> d one for lainp-ligrit?I prooured one sot (roin Air. 1 obiaa which answered botii pi rpoacs. I have used his for several months, and finu them excellent. EDWAKD STUDB9, Of Department of State. Mr. J. Tobias. Sir: TUe pair of Sp6ctaolcs you furnished me yesterday Ere particularly satisfactory to me. They are very decidedly the best 1 pi-asess, t.n?; I am the of e.ght or nins pairs, oarefuily i oleo'ed in different places ar.d from opt.cians reo ommended to me on aco; ur.t of their profen-siona) standing in France, England, ana the United St&tee, i have been also pleased with your remarks and di rections on the treatment of trie eyes, for the pur pose of preserving ar.d imp-ovine r"ht? sight Respaotfuily yours, CHS. CALDWELL. Professor of K. C.. Louisville, Ky. UnootLTN ORTHoraiDic I'tsriTUTiort, After most careral examination or M <?. J. Tobias'a GlaaBes, 1 am enabled to testify '.hat their hardness, olesrnoss, poushiug, ftnd exact optical shape rt nder them particularly reoommendable to those whose merely optioal impairment ol the eyes are in want ol suoh auxiliaries. I consider, moreover, Mr. Tobias fully qualified to determine the foous of the eye,both by his optical knowledge and experience, and by means of his optometer. In addition, I oan further state that Mr. Tobias has aupplied aome of my pa tieuta with Glasses, to their and my satisfaction LEWIS BAUER. M. D.. PhTaioian and Surgeon, Berlin: Member of tha Royal College of Surgeons. England; Member of the Mediae! Sooiety of London, and of the Pathological Sooiety of New York; late Sur geon of the Royal Orthopaedic Institution of Manchester, England, and Surgeon of the B. O. Institution. No*?oli, Va., July 27, 16S4. In the experienoe of even two years, I have foui.d great difficulty in obtaining Spectacles that were ex actly adapted t<)the weakness of my sight. This tn oonvenienoe Mr. Tobias seems to have removeJ for the present by the substitution for ine of better and more suitable Glaaaea. They are dear, ohryatal-like and ooinfort&b'ie to my eyes. I would commend him to those who from age or other infirmity require ar tificial aid in thia way. J.J. SIMKiNS, M. D. _ WILMINGTON, N. C., June 16, 1854. To persona who have had the aight of their eyea ao inpaired as to require the use of Glaaaea, 1 would recommend Mr. John Tohiaa as a auitable person from whom to obtain audi Glaaaea aa they may re ?|uire. as he has suited me witii a pair of Speotaclea or a far and near aight. My sight nas been impaired very much by a service of years in the Post Office Department, whioh berth required me to be on duty from 11 o clock at night till after day, during whioh time 1 uaad but one Tight. W. A. WALKtlR. Dkpartmrnt or Interior, May 8, 1855. From natural defecta and the unequal range of my ?yea, I have been oompelled to uae glasses for seve ral years. I have tried different opticians without obtaining glaaaea perfectly fitted to my eyea. Foai months since Mr. Tobias inade two pairs especially for me, whioh I have round to serve me perfectly. By the aae of hie opionater he ia enabled to adapt gleaaea most minutely to the evo. I most cheerful ly re oo mm end Mr. Tobias to all having oooaaiop to aae glaaaea, aud bear my testimony aa to hia akill aa anoptioian. HENRY E. BALDWIN. . ae 25 Aaa't Seo'y to aign I .and Warrasta.
