IIT TitK T.X FRRKCB EDITOR. | It in .1 well known f;ct that oftentimes both those joltra which nre called ••practical”—and that liquor which is icrm ’ rd “had,” have? been productive of exceedingly evil couaequen } con; hut whether the liquor or the joke has done the most I mischief, ive arc* not called upon juat now to determine. We propone to make mention of an yffuir wheir had liquor and ; a (Tactical joke were productive of the very boat consequenc es imaginable. Many years ago, while the State of Georgia was still in its infancy, an eccentric creature, named Brown, waa one of its Circuit Judges. He was a man of consideroblo ability, of in flexible integrity and much beloved and respected by all the legal profession, hut he had one common fault. His social qualities would h ad him. despite his judgement, into frequent excesses In travelling the Circuit it was his almost invaria ble habit the niulit before opening the to get “com fortably corned,', by means of dpplninces common upon such occasions, If he couid’nt succeed while operating upon hia own ho ik, the members of the bar would generally turn in and help him. It was in the Spring id the year; taking his wife—a mod el of a woman in her way —in the old fashioned, but strong ••carry all,” that he journeyed some forty miles, and reached a village where ••C-urt” was to he opened the next day. It was along in the evening of Sunday that he arrived at the place and look up quarters with relation of his “better half,” by whom the presence of an official dignitary was con sidered a singular honor. After supper ludge Drown stroll* rd over to the only tavern in the town, where he found many old friends, railed to the pla- e, like himself on important pro fessional business, ami who were properly glad to meet him. “Gentlemen, **id the Judge, *• ‘ti-* quite a long time since we have enjoyed a glass together—let us take a drink all round. Os course fi> emit, (addressing the landlori) you have lietter liquor than you had the last time we weie here, the stulf you had then v. a- not fit lo give fl dog.” Sterriit. who had chaise of i!e house, pretended that eve rything wis tight, and so they went lo wotk. It is unneces sary to enlarge upon a diinking l out in a country tavern —it will quite answer our purpose to stats that somewhere in the region of midnight the Judge wended hia devious way to wards his temporary h .me. About the time he was leaving, however, some younger barristers, fond of a “practical,” and not much ah aid of the bench, transferred all the silver spoons of Sterriit to the Judge's coat pocket. It was eight o'clock of Mouday morning that the Judge ro?e. Having indulg’ din the process of ablution and abster sion, and partaken ol a refreshing breakfast, he Went to bis room to prepare himself for the duties of the day. “ Well, Polly,” said he to his wife, •• I feel much belter than I expected to feel after that frolic of Isvt night.” “Ah, Judge,” suid she, reproachfully, **you are getting too old —you ought to leave oil'that business.” “Ah, Polly—what’s the use of talking V* It was at this precise instant of time, that the Judge, hav ing put on his over coal, was proceeding, according to his Usual cuß'om. to give his wife a parting kiss, that he happen ed in thrusting Ins hand into his pocket, (n lay hold *>f fitter lilt's spoon*. He jerked them out. With in rijiitMiun of horror almost indrac lihabie he exclaimed “My God !

I have always thought that something bad wouIJ hap p n to rn—that I should do something very wrong—kill somebody in a moment of passion, pet Imps hut I never im agined that I could be mean enough to l*e guilty of deliber ate larceny.” ••Hut, there rnav he some mistake, JuJafl! * • N. mistake, Polly.

Each one displaycii to Ihe beat, hia K raci-, wit, an.l fortune—in fin*, all that could give him a value in tho of the widow. For (Jlacrelion'a .ke, we shall j name her Mdme. Danville—and hre we may state, that, be firs tile end ol her mourning, she had announced her nosiliv intention of re-marrying. Her fir.t marriage had been in obedience to the choice of her tumily j now that she was free and mislress of her hand, she was determined to have a brii liant revenge. She at first conceived Ihe idea of marrying at Paris, wheie she could choose front a larger field ; hot in. purism interests connectrd with her properly, decided her on . remaining in the provinces. The defunct was a tich i faclurer, and Ilia widow e fortune was in rnetcandisa an I : commercial paper, site product of which was certain, but time wa< necessary to roaliif it. Mm,. Danville therefore resign ed herself to await t lie prudent settlement of her husband's all nra. which woul I require two years, liut the widow’* sagacity. exhausted by rhf accomplish meut of this resolution, succumbed io the idea of waiting tw . yrara before renewing the bonds of hymen. Already ht.l her spring blossomed unfavorably ; must she still p JS < in is • lation ot the best years of youth ? When u<*h reflection* seize A woman’s thoughts, the course she will take is no: doubtful. Consequently,the aspirants to hei hand and for tune, for n moment disdained, were anew admitted to present their titles. The beautiful widow had her court; she beheld herself besieged with ardent vows, tender prayers, hmnsg*- and flattery “f eve.y degree, all of which left her indifferent, until, one dav. when a serpent crept among the ff,we*s. The serpent—thus allegorically named—was a certain r> dn'iint young man. in a good state of preservation, but still, no longer young. No one knew precisely his age, but ho had oi*se.i forty, a fatal epoch for fascinating charmers.— Uut, by a happy exception, our hero remained in active *or vice, thanks to his skill at the game Gallants of this aon are very dangeioos. being treated as of little consequence , and thus they make headway in their captivating art, till i, in too late to arrest them. This wqb the case of Mr. Leon ard; hia rival* neglected to abstract his path, tho widow a< lWt lent but little attention to h s address* g, and so he forti fied himself in hi* tutelary position. Endowed with a pa lienee to endure evey tent, and possessing the resources fur nisheil by long pmctice, he knew how to profit bv all the ed vafit iges of the case ; armed with a caustic wit, skilful in rid icule. he had the art of stigmatizing and ruining prospects of all his competitors. In fine, he remained alone on the baltL field, until the lair widow could not dispense with noticing him. The fir-t success, skilfully managed, was soon to conduct to a complete victory. The ci-devant young man knew, bv force ot borrowing from art, the means of indefinitely pro hi* youth. Appearances militated in his favor. A widow ought not to have been taken in thereby, but Mmo Danville was perfectly artless, and was not sufficiently exp* rienced to distinguish truth from fiction. She listened to th vow* of her superannuated lover, and granted him her hand Thus, tot a second time, the beautiful widow was obnut t< become the dope and victim of a badly assorted marriage, and her fatal destiny was on the point of being completed, when the inundation came to her aid. It must be said, that M. Leonard lodged in Mm*. Dsn ville’s house. This house, situated at the extremity of lb. fiubourg, was distributed ns follows;—on the ground floor were wnrehof*es **f merchandise, which represented in pan the widow’* fortune the floor above wa* occupied by the In dy anl ona of h.*r relatives, who was to return from the coun try on the morrow, to be present at the marriage; above w,t M. Leonard’s apartment, and in tbe attic a young artist, who*, the widow had hardly noticed—a painter, tootimiJ, reserved, and poor, to dare betray the secret thoughts that devoured him. It was the day b> fire the marriage filed upon. On that dav the Khone overflowed ami filled the city—but the water was its yet hardly * foot deep, and divers signs indicating it sub-iding. disquietude was allayed. The future couple pass ed the evening in a tete-a-tete* Mme. Danville working a; I cr embroidery, and M. Leonard reading aloud a novel— neither suspecting that during these peaceful hours the scourg* . instead of retiring, was making rapid progress. The tcie o ie'e terminated carli r than usual, for the rolemnity of tlu Dior row lequired some thought and preparation. Having ga ntl his chamber, the conqueror gave vpnt in his solitude to etc* as of j.*y at his triumph. He complimented himaeli before the glass, all the while arranging his night toilet which in a great measure, destroyed the fragile edifice of his decep ive charms.
