Mr. Popps paid his two hundred and sixty
seventh visit to Miss Clarissa Cooler the oth
er evening. He found her in a rocker, alone
in the parlor; stole bis arm around her alabas
ter neck, and sipped the nectar of her cherry
lips—a proceeding there was not the least
harm in, considering that they had come to
an agreement, and were generally reported
to be on the high road to matrimony. The la
dy took all quietly —even indifferently, to
judge from the lassitude of her attitude in llie
rocker, her lazy use of her fan, and her excla
mation of something between a heigh-ho and a
Commonplace were disposed of. Then fol
lowed a silence. broken only by Mr. Popps
slapping at the mosquitoes, and Miss Clarissa
fauniug herself uneasily
At length Popps proposed a promenade
and ice cream. Clarissa declined both, ad
I wish to stay at home, fori have something
particular to tell you.
Indeed, said Popps, what it is dear.
You expect our wedding to take place in
three weeks don’t you?
To be sure I do
Well lam sorry to disappoint you. but!
must do it. I cannot marry—
Good heavens, Clarissa what are you sav
Don’t interrupt me. 1 mean I can’t marry
just yet a while, not for some months to come.
Why Clarissa, what’s the meaning of all
this ? You gave me your positive promise,
and said nothing stood in the way. I am all
ready and worried with waiting—why do you
put it off, dear.
That you will have to excuse my telling
you. I have a good reason for it —and my
mind is made up. Will that satisfy you.
Popps mused awhile- Clarissa kept her fan
going. Finally, Popps spoke.
Mo, Clarissa, it won’t satisfy me. You post
pone our wedding, and refuse to tell me why.
It you have a reason for it you ought to let
me know it, and maybe it would satisfy me.—
But I won’t be satisfied without a reason.
Well then, you’ll have to remain unsatisfied.
I tell you I have a reason, and a good one—
what more do you want ?
I see how it is—l’ve courted you too
long—l did’ut strike while the iron was hot—
you are tired of me, and wish to get rid of me.
Well, if that is your wish, go ahead.
Mr. Popps you’re a dunce —you’re a fool !
Maybe I am and maybe I ain’t, rising with
his temper, but this I’ll say Miss Clarissa, if
you don’t tell me why you postpone the wed
ding for a few months, you may postpone it for
ever, so far as lam concerned. Tell me Clar
issa, else I swear that when I leave this house
to-night, I will never set foot in it again 1
Well, then you’d better go !
\ ery well. Good night, Miss Cooler.
Popps reached the door, Clarissa followed
him; and seeing that he was in earnest, cried
to him to stay. Popps came back. Clarissa
put her head on his shoulder and cried. Popps
melted. Popps spoke first.
Well deaf, what’s the matter ?
Oh 1 think you are so unreasonable and
cruel ! indeed, indeed, I have a good cause for
putting off our marriage—but 1 cannot tell
you what it is. Oh, dear Mr Popps, excuse
me ! And she cried a little more.
Well Clarissa, tell me this. Do you put it
off to please your father or’ any of your rela
No—they know nothing of my determina
Do you put it off on account of anything
concerning me ?
Do you want to go anywhere, or do any
thing particular, that will keep you from mar
In God’s name then, Clarissa what do you
want ! Why keep me in this suspense.
Oh Mr. Popps you’re so cruel I Maybe 1
ought to tell you the obstacle—but I caD’t in
deed I can’t. •
Just as you please, Miss Cooler. And Popps
again picked up his hat.
Ob, Mr Popps pray don’t go—don’t go yet
yet awhile !
Then Miss Clarissa, tell me the obsticle.
Popps was evidently determined. Clarissa
put her her head on his shoulder, laboring un
der a strange agitation. Several times she es
sayed t<f speak. At length she breathed into
his ear these fearful words:
The weather's too hot.

Another Shooting Affair.— On Saturday
night last, another shooting affair occurcd at
one of those sinks of vice in the lower part of
the city, in which Charles Barrow was shot by
Martain Watson; four back shot taking effect
in the side of Barrow. We understand that the
difficulty grew out of some raisunderstaning be
tween the parties relative to a “frail daughter
of Eve.” Barrow is dangerously wounded, but
hopes are entertained of his recovery. Watson
has not yet been arrested, though we under
stand he is on the Alabama side of the river,
and takes no pains to counccal himself, believ
ing himself to have been perfectly justifiable in
the act.— The Corner Stone.

John Walney, died in Glasgow in lt4t, who
was actually 124 years old. He married eleven

Feathering iiis Own Nest. —Lane, the
Kansas patriot, is feathering his nest finely from
the contributions of the aid men, in this State.
He refuses to pay his men, intending, no doubt,
to keep the means for his own use when he gets
into the Teritory. He has lately had a diffi
culty among some of his men, who gave him a
severe flogging. A few such whippings might
do him some good, if he is not too far gone for
any influence to reach him. Our men here
should call a meeting immediately and send
on a fresh supply of means to this “self-sacri
ficing patriot and philanthropist ! Shall we
have a call ?—Bloomington Flog.
A Story of Misplaced JLove —How
certain Ladies were Swindled
by a Scamp.
The Cincinnati Daily Times has the following
Some time since, Lieutenant Hurst, of the city
Police, and other officers, who had been for some
time engaged in ferreting out the perpetrators of a
forgery, arrested a young man, who, it is evident,
was the principal in the transaction. After his
arrest, the officers, as is their custom, took posses
sion of his baggage, which they searched for evi
dence of his character, and of the crime. Among
other documents, they found a bundle of letters
from numerous ladies, living in different localities,
and with whom, it appears, the fellow- has been
playing the part of the gay deceiver.
It seems that whenever lie could make an im
pression upon the heart of a good looking lady, he
would ;lo so, and, though a married man, was at
all times ready to make an engagement, if lie could
make money by the operation. The officers have
ascertained that, in one instance, lie borrowed a
horse and suniof money from his affianced, and
then disappeared; and, it would appear from the
letters, that in some localities lie was engaged to
marry more than one of his lady acquaintances.—
One who signs herself ‘"Grace,” writes from the
northern part of the State.
She complains of his attentions to another, but
forgives him, and closes her letter with a fervent
reiteration of love.
There is a letter from another, thought t.o be an
orphan girl. She appeals most tenderly to his
manliness, and as she knows he is the only one up
on whom she can rely for protection, begs him not
to desert her. She, too, complains of his atten
tions to another.
In the budget are several from one lady, all long
and exceedingly well written. She, like all the
rest, is much attached to the gay deceiver, and
chides him frequently for his neglect of promise
solemnly made. In one of the letters she speaks as

sess a heart. I beg of you deal justly with me,
and do not say you will do a thing, and then not
do it. I beseech you, do not set any more time
to come, and not do it. You told me when we
seperated. you would be home by Christmas, and
you wrote you would be here by the 10th of this

I believed you. Let me repeat to you flying ru

her father-in-law in regard to getting a divorce.
He consented, and she then said that she “was en

your professions to me. She left the next day
rather disconcerted. Now, what does this mean 9
I think this accouuts for you neglecting me for
months. Then Miss J. C., has been telling a lu

She tells your conversation, and it is just as you
