Poms two years subsequent to my parting with Peter Mulrooney, as related in my earlier experiences, I chanced to fall in with him again in rather an unexpected manner. Bu siness of some importance having taken me to the city, I was traversing, pretty rapidly one of its meaner streets, when 1 heard myself suddenly hailed by name in an accent pecu liarly Irish ; and turniDg round, discovered Peter approaching towards me in his usual loping gait. He was so altered In his habili ments from the picturo I vividly retained in my memory of the blundering, blarneying Irishman, who took my eow to market, thai if it bad not been for his voicc, I dare say I should have passed him without recognition " Why, Mulrooney." said I, " is that you? What part are you playing now ?" 44 Faix, Misther Urbin," he replied, " it? little ye'd be afther guessin' if yo thryed iver so much. Sure its a grate gintleinau I am since I left service an set up for myself " 44 A gentleman ? What sort of a gentle man, Peter? ' M Misther Mulrooney if you plase," said he, correcting my familiarity with one of hi.* droll looks. "Oh, but its a rare counthry this is, any way. Beyant the wather, it wo* Pether here anr Pether there, till sorra a bit I kBow'd of any other name than Pother. But here tho conversation of the ladies an' gintle men is illogant in the extrauie, and the grate politichuners in their correspondence wid me write the beautifullest letthers, superBcribin them, 'To Misther Mulrooney, Ksquire .' Faix! but it b-.tes Bannagher, any how, an' that's no lie." 411 am glad to hear that you are getting alrng in the world so famously.'' 44 Aisey, sir, aisey. LasbinV of atin' an' drinkin' widout any constitooshual objections. Its might little work I have to do any way. I am a profisbunal gintleman, Misther Urbin, an' live on my manes." 41 Oh, Mister Mulrooney?" 41 Arrah, sir, but its thrue the day. Its a politisbuner I am, wid a grate janious for fightin ! Oh, but its wonderful busy they kape me 'lecshun days knockin' down the inimy." 44 What party do you call the enemy ?" 14 Sorra bit I know," said Peter, shrugging his shoulders, then casting towards me one of bis old queer sidelong looks, ho added?44 I'm thinkin , sir, 'tis the iVfriotio parly meself does belong to " 44 And so you get well paid and well fed for your scrvicos, do you ?" '? If promises 'ud fatten a man, I'd b; as big ac the pr-w cx, an' tL.it's no lie. Bat sure they'll k;tf o some of tiiern I think, an' thin its inagisihcr I am, an' dale out tho law to the vagabani-a?ocb, 'lis the beautiful bisness!" 4- A magistrate 7 Can you read and write ?" 44 Ayeh! What 'ul I bo go ?d for if I couldn't ?" said Peter, evasively. " Sorra bit it matther? ; 'tis a ithrc-ng mark I make, an' that's not aisy to rub out any way." "Take my advice, Mulrooney, end go to work. Ditch?dig cellars - break stone* upon a road?do anything rather than suffer your self to be made the tool of designing men, who will uso your services so long ac they are bene ficial to them, and cast >ou iff as soon as their own ambitious projects are achieved. Now, as for a living, it is very easy for you?boinii a single man " Peter groaned. 44 It's married I am," said he. , 41 Married!" I exclaimed; "and in your circumstances? What folly !" 44 Troth ye may say that, yer honter " said Peter, penitently. "But Misthress Mulroo ney was a widdy Och ! but 'tis the de-av ingest crajtbuis they are. all the wide wureld over. Ayeh!" he coutinued, turning toward me with a look of half humorous sorrow " Twaa a wild cow I druv to market that time, an* that's no lie !" ''Was ohe a countrywoman of yours'" I inquired. '? Does yer hon- er be thinkin' 'tis a Ameri ky woman that could chate me in that way ? ' said Teter, indignantly ?? Sure 'tisn't in the likes of them to do the thrick." ? But h >w came this about, Peter?" ?' Ayeh ! Bad luck's soon tould. I boarded wid her." "And so, IrioL like, you must needs fall in love with the lady and court her ?" '? It's mighty little kve I had for big Mia thress Connolly any way, and that's no lit! Ac lor the co-Tiin , 'tis a natheral falin' if mine to be spukin salt words to the fay males of a fumily , an' sure it was n&deful, besides, to kape Misthress Connolly's mind .is aisey as an oulii ihoe while 1 owed her for my boord '' 44 And that is the way you came to be mar ried, is it ?" "Ayeh, sir, 'tis the strangest thing! Oh, Michael Connolly, why did ye die ? Bad cess to me that iver I should live to be desaved Ly a fat woman of fifty. But, sure quarthers wor so pleasant, Mr Urbin," continued Peter, apologetically, 4,?nl Misthress Connolly so tinderiy iriterestin", wid her heart bruk into pieces wid the sorrow that was in it Och ! out 'tis strong enough now?that I thought it ud be a marciful interposition to comfort her any how." ." And :o you courted her, I suppose ?" 44 Oh, but it was a puty tight to see the way I did it," replied Peter, with on* of his rie-b laughs. 44'1 was the beautifullest specimen of tnc effects of blarney that has been since Saiut Pathrick put his cometherupon the sar pints." 4' What could you expect, then, but mar riage as a consequence !'' 4 Faix, it's little I thought about it at all, and less I liked it Sure I tould the ould woman I was a single man, and swore by the piper that I intended to remain so." "Then you should never have sought to gain her affections ; it would have been cruel to serve the poor creature so, and desert her afterwards." 1 'Affections ! Musha ! 'tis her affections wor mouldy many a long day ago " 1 Well, you married her at all events," taid I, impatiently. "Faix, I dunno; but I dose be thinkin' 'twas she married me. One night there wor some of the ould counthry peopl* at the hou.-e, and we talked about ould times, an' afther a while there were lashins of whisky put on the table, an' we talked, an' dhrinked, an' quar relled, an' danced, an' talked, an' dhrinked again, till its my sarious opinion that my sinses left me intirely, and niver came baca till I found meself in bed next rnornin' mighty onasy in my mind and wondheriog how I g"t into Misthress Connolly's room instead of my own. While I was schaming out an apology, who should come to the door but Misthre i Connolly herself " 44 4 Miethor Mulrooney,' sei she, with a deep blush. 4 how do ye find yerself this mornin' 44 Purty well, thank ye, mem," sei I, "bar ring the dbryntss of my mouth " '?Is it dbry ye are?" fez she, as soft pt butther 14 Faix, that's asey mended, any how.

"Deed an' i would, av it be plasin' to you, Misthress Connelly," sez I. 44 Oh, Pether, dear, sure its Misthress Mul rooney you must call me now," 6ay6 she. "I'd be plased to call ye anything that da cent and proper, acush 1a," stz I, tinderiy, for the thirst was conshuming me. ''Ob, but its the square inon ye are," scs she, laughing 44 Sure I was in luck the day ye came to boord at my hou**." 41 You may say that, ' sea I, "for I am a gintleman of ancient family, and its not al- I ways yer favored with the likes, Mi. thre* i Connolly." 1 "Mulrooney!" tea she, oorrectin' me. i " Mem !?? ses I. ?'

Ann Beh ler, belonging to the stock company, sustain ing the two principal oharacters. The St. Luuis Democrat of the 17th furnishes the fol lowirg particulars of the affair : 44 It seems that several months ago. when Mrs. Behier come upon the stage, she waa b 'aiding at Mrs Myer'a on Market street. Aa she appeared to be a poor woman, Mr Ander son exhibited a very kind and fatherly regard for her, and oace ia a while, he was clever ohough to wait oa her home. Ia time, be coming really solicitous about his portage, he got in a habit of calling at daytime at her room, and finally the hoary-headed old sinaer made proposals to 1 ir, which so far from re ceiving a respectful beariug were met by a forcible expulsion of the old gentleman from the room, and a dangerous tumble down a flight of stairs This expulse waa followed by repeated threats from Mr Anderson, whieh were all treated lightly by Mrs Behier The old man swore be woul 1 kill her; and on Tues day night last, opened the iargest blade of his pocket knife and conoaaled himself in a dark corner of the stage to await the appearanoe of victim She came along oa her way to enter upon the stage, when the old man uprung upon her, aeiead her by the hair, and gave her two stabs, one in the neck, just missing the jugu lar veia, and aaother in the breaat. Remarkable Rob*brt.?The royal plate of Or cat Britain waa receatly stolen under ain gular circumstances: Notwithstanding the prompt and vigorcua inquiry which has been mada through the va rious police offioes and other sources, not the slightest clue has been obtained that might lead to the tracing of the st len plate, or the moana by which it was taken from the wagon. Tho robbery waa effected in the apaoe of ive minutes, while the five men employed to guard the plate were slaadii g in froat of the bar drinaingapotof beer, which Bally, the guard, paid for. It is supposed that the thieves were well acquaiiiicd with the ineeaa used for tke removal of the Royal platf, aad that they may have beea ia the habit of followiag the wagoa with a cart, looking out for aay chance that might occur oa the road, either by the men stopniag to driak, or aay other oircaai stances waieh woald admit of their taking advaataga of it:
