Lore Scene. 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 yu-hum. 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 ding, 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 ing ? 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 tions ? No—they know nothing of my determina tion. Do you put it off on account of anything concerning me ? No. Do you want to go anywhere, or do any thing particular, that will keep you from mar rying ? * No. 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. 1 opps wafted. W hen our spirit left he was advocating a trip to the White Mountains. B@KThe New York National Democrat states that a member of Congress has bet ten thou sand dollars that Mr. Buchanan will carry twelve Northern States—Maine, New Hamp shire, Connecticut, New York, Pennsylvania, Mew Jersey, Ohio, Indiana, Illnois, lowa, \\ isconsin, Michigan and California SIO,OOO has also been left at the Democrat Office, by a merchant in South Street, to bet on the election ot Buchanan. 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. A Man with Eleven Wives.— There is said to be now living in the neighborhood of Glas gow, Scotland, a lady in her lOtth year: and very recently another female is reported to have died at the age of 101; whilst acarpenter named John Walney, died in Glasgow in lt4t, who was actually 124 years old. He married eleven wives, all of whom he buried, and of his sev enteen children, five survived him, whose united ages amounted to 326 years. 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 story .- 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 follows : “I have for one year been living in suspense, in expectation of, I hardly know what. I have sacrific ed situations, or rather refused such, where I could be enjoying a little of the comforts of life ! 0 God! deal mercifully with my aching heart. You pos 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 month. I can bear this no longer. You are breaking my heart, not in this alone, but iu other business. Are you getting a divorce? Speak truthfully. Kcmember,*one day you must render an account for every deed done in the body. You say you love me, and there have been times when I believed you. Let me repeat to you flying ru mors. Your friend, Mrs. , has been here on a visit from L . She came to advise with her father-in-law in regard to getting a divorce. He consented, and she then said that she “was en gaged to another, giving your name and descrip tion. Mr. TANARUS., recognized you, and told her of 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 dicrous yarn concerning your trying to marry her. She tells your conversation, and it is just as you have talked to me.” These are specimens of the entire correspon dence. READ!READ! DU. W. R. MOSELEY—Dear Sir: Having last year been treated by you for a Cancer on my face, I feel it a duty I owe to you, as well as the afflicted, to state to the public generally, that I am entirely cured of that loathsome dis ease which troubled me so long. ‘I he Cancer was on my face near the left eye, and it has, by the application of your medicine, been effectually cured without the use of the knife. lam confident from experience, and from what I have seen of other cases, that your remedies are the least painful, and the most effectual in removing Cancer, of any other known in this country. Respectfully yours, Witnessed by * COLBERT GENTLE. James Edmondson, 1 F B Morris, j Spring Place, Murray co., Ga., May 28, 185 G. To the Public. WITH great pleasure I embrtice the opportunity of ad ding my testimony to that of others in favor of the treatmeutof Cancerous Ulcers, by DrW RMoseley, of Grif fin, Ga. Ido certify that I had an Ulcer on my cheek for Bor 10 months I became alarmed and consulted several Physicians, some of whom pronounced it Cancer I tried various remedies, but all failed to effect a cure I believed it a Cancer, and hearing of Dr Moseley’s skill in the treat ment of them, I visited him in October, 1855, and was en tirely cured in a few months.
