But his evil habits hung nbout him, and occasionally he was found with jolly, frolicsome spirits of bacchanalian revelry. . His -true friends expostulated with him, to convince him of the injury ho Was doing to himsell; but he s'ill persisted. His practice began to .fall ofi^ and many looked on him as on ( the sure road to ruin. He was advised lo get married, with a view of correcting his habits.

Romantic Marriage. A few evenings ago as the cars . of Carrollton Railroad wore approaching the city, a little girl about three years old ran in front of the engine and stopped on the center of the track. The break men attempted to stop the engine as soon as the child was perceived, but on and on hurried the iron monster, and just as it was about to crush into tho earth the beauteous victim whidi thus so innocentl y braved its coming, the strong hand of an athletic young man was stretched- forth, and at the hazard of another hfo, the child was saved. Loud was the shouti of applause from the few who witnessed the daring deed, ard in triumph ihe young man bore the child away, and delivered it lo its mother. Any attempt lo describe a mother' s feelings on such an occasion would be more lhan vain. She felt as a mother alone can feel, when the darling of her heart—her only child—is rescued from the very jaws of death;, and wilh an eloquence which no words can convoy, she looked end s...

Death-Bed Confession.—In the western pnn of the city there has for years past, resided a singular being, whose only occupation was that of drawing sand. His worldly effects consisted, as far us was known, of two horses, greatly the worse for'wear and age, and his " sand carl" as a false-bottomed: wagon is called. He made no acrjtajntances except ihose which his business required, and wiih them his taciturnity gained for him the cognomen of " Bleepy Jake" and the " Her rnii." Day before yesterday he was p rostrated on a sick bed, with a disease strongly resembling cholera, superinduced, it is believed by his intemperate habits, for il is known that he never cooked his meat, but ale il law. A ^ friend, who lived near, did what he could the fust day, during his meal hours; and in the evening, noticing that ho wns failing fast, secretly sought and procured a doctor, who, upon his arrival, found the poor/ellow in a collnpsed state. Medicines - were given him, tut he xontin.-ued to ...

To-Day and To-morrow High hopes that burned like stars sublime, Go down in the heavens of freedom; And true hearts perish in the lime We bitterl' test need 'em!

Not long since nn eminent commercial lawyer related the ensuing anecdote as an illustration of tho " composition" which sometimes entered into the selection of a jury : " I hud a very important ense," said he, "involving some eighty or a hundred thousand dollars : it "was a protracted ense, owing to the complicated interests involved in it and altogether a very tedious trial. When it was g iven to the jury, the judge remarked to them, as they were about leaving the rour!- ripom for private consultation, that if, during the progress of the case, any terms of law had been used or any rules slated, that they did not fully understand, the court was prepared beforehand lo make all needful expla. nations. . " Upon this, one, a man with a hi gh, bald head, and a cnlm, blue eye, upon whose sense of justice \ had greatly relied (for he had paid the strictest attention to the entire proceedings) arose and snid i <<I believe I understand all the rules lhal have boen laid down...
