The sight of the young physician ascend ing the sli p fjr an early morning call on that eventful day, made her heart beat with a vague mixture of j y, alarm and mirth. The widow looked up from ber embroidery as the bell rang, and said w ith a ijaii-t smile : " The doctor grows rj'jte devoted in bis attentions.

He lift his chair and took a m at beside her on the sofa, lie took ber bam! her heart beat fa-t, and the truant blood rush ed to her cheek, but he was too much agi tated himself to notice her strange confjsiun. " My dear madam," bo said timidly, " have I erred iu thinking that you have always louked upon me kindly unce our first acquaintance V " liless mc !" thought the widow, " the man thinks I'm goit.g to Ull him at once that I love him! But, then, he's young Slid uuued to court-hip, and 1 mu.-t give biin strong ftieoursgi nn tit " " You hue not been mistaken.

" My picture, a lock of hair, or my own dear self! " ' You are silent," said the young man, H .ickly. " Csu it be that you have no faith ill me: Bi lieve me madam, the pricelisi treasure of a woman's love is in estimably sacred in my eyes.

" I have another name," be said gently, " call me by that, it will sound less formal and give me some assurance that you are in earnest that you are not sporting with the best hopes and dreams of a heart that has never loved before." " I am iu, John," was In r low reply. " But are ;'iu when you say you have never loved before ?" " Perfectly so, Madam. I have always been a lonely ambitious man. My profes sion has been my mistress and my wife. I have never known more than the name of love till now." " Aud now you are quite certaiti this is no idle fauoy," b said, coquetisbly. " Quite certain that you will regret nothing the disparity of years" tt HM 11 wit lucre is none, my ucnr mauam. e are nuited to each other in every way. Nev " I am satisfied, Jobu. I ask no wore," I sue inurmureu. "Then I bare your permission to nee Amelia, and tell bur that it is all arrang ed !'' aked the young man. " Dear girl, you little know bow lung I have loved you, yet feared to fpeak." " Amelia 1'' gapped the borror-stiickeo widow. " Amelia!'' replied the unsuspicious lov er. " Iu giving her t me you will give a life long happiness, for which 1 nhall always bless you. Can I Bee her this morning, dear mother.'' That word capped the climnx." What mortal could bear more after so egr?gious a blunder. " Wait a moment, nnd I will tell her you are hcie,"' stammered tho widow, and van ishini; from the room, die Foa'ht her cham ber before her self possession should vanish, find any un'arded lo ok or worI reveal to him the secret lie had never g'R';cd. " Iu a mercy I have so inucli p'eseuce. of mind," she said, ten minutes later. ' How could I have been such a foul ! as it is. I don't think I shall break my heart. Now to seal Amelia's lips' and in arching up to that young lady's room, she entered, closed the door carefully, and said iu an unconcerned sort of way : " Do you wish mo to give my consent to your marriage with Dr. Ilazelton! Do you love him V One glance at her mother's face, gnard cd as it was, showed the girl that she knew all, and she answered frankly " Yes mother, I wish for your cousent and bles-ing '' " You shall have tln ni on two conditions. First, promise never to tell him of au" i idle words that I may have dropped men can never take a joke, you know. Second ly, defer your marriage for three inuuit.a. Do you accept these both of these re member. '' " I do, mother." " And will keep them ?" " Mo.-t faithfully." '' Then go to him, be is waiting for you," and pressing her lips to her daughter's forehead, the widow passed down the stairs to her own private parlor. Three months afterwarJ, there wag a double wedding at Mrs. FitZsitinnon's mag nificent home, and many were there who divided ail t heir admiration between the brilliant bride of the young physician, aud the mother, who, with the gift of her fair hand, rewarded George Henderson for years of unobtrusive courtship and unfeign ed affection.

A young man from the town of S , in Richland county, Ohio, having determined to celebrate the 'Glnrinu-Fourth,' visited Cleaveland on that occasion, accom panied by a fair damsel, The young man never having been much from "bum," was somewhat unaccustomed to the " usages of this world." He " put up ' at the Wcddell and oidcred dinner, which, iu due time be ing announced, the young gallant boldly walked iu to a sumptuous repast, leaving the young lady alone in the sitting-roam. After partaking of a meal that "astonish ed his bowels." he returned to his compau j0 wl,o was rather surprised at his pro ceedings and remarked : ' 'J he dinner li as darned good, uhy don't tiiu buy you some V The above is an actual fact, which we can vouch for.

The sober, second thought of New Eng land, New York, Pennsylvania, Ohio, and the West, began to be developed, not even till lute in September, and it was only in October that thought began to act. In thirty days the cauvass was over and cVjeid ed, and the "slaveholder"' "sold to the South" man, with Millard Fillmore on the ticket, carried nil before him. This sober, second thought iu tbeso free States, is yet to come again and begin to come in the com- ing September, aud in October we shall see very like what we saw in the general rally of ail conservative men to Millard Fillmore. -, r ,- r t J he lanatimm of the agrieul- turai districts ot t lie iSortu is strong, be- cause it nas 'jever necn met ana reasanea wjtn 0!J tjQ tump, but its good common sense is stronger A Yankee often runs method in his madness, ainl it is from that incthotl we expect a rescue.

Butts delivered a. very strong and able speech at Taylor's Springs, iu Rockingham county, Virgiuir in favor of Mr. Fillmore. He was replied to bv Mr. Harrin, the Democratic elector &r that district. During his speech Mr. ""ris several times alluded to Mr. Butts', opinion ou the subjoct of the power of Con- reS9 t0 Ie?i?,a!8 for the Terntcie.. and uot oeeupy the same poMtion upon that fjueu- his opiniens were Dot in issue ia this can vass, lie would, however, ask the gentle man who bad propounded the inquiry, whether he considered an admission of the eon-titutional power of Co-ogress to legislate on the subject of slavery iu the Territories an in-uperable objection to a caudidate for the Presidency ? Mr. Harris. I certainly do. Mr. Botts. Then you, of course, would not vote for Bit if I were a candidate, and held the opinion ? Mr. Harris. No; and, so help me heav en, I would vote for no man for any office who subscribed to so daugerous and odious a doctrine ! Mr. Botts. Very well, sir ; my opinions in uub a ujsi irr ui iiai I in uui lituca iu tuts Y canvass, but I will read lor your especial edification and instruction the following o declaration : " Having urged the adoption of the Mis souri Compromise, the inference is iuevita hle that ('oticress in mv onininn. nnssriiifd thC power to legislate upon the subject of I ' .. .

" o I quote from the " Sandford letter " of .lines Buchanan ! uch a shout of laughter we have tiever heard as followed this " clincher," and Mr. Harris stood covered with confusion, look ing for a few moments, as a lady present expressed it, " as if he had an attack of lock jaw." " You arc pledged ajainst Bu chanan," cime from all parts ef the crowd. After a fen minutes, the Democratic or- stnmriipr! nut t.hut Mr. Buchanan's real opinion was that Congress had the pow er to legislate for the protection of slavery, but has no power to legislate for its prohi bition. " Indeed ?" rejoined .Mr. Botts, " then you think the power exi-ts to legislate cn one side of the question, but now on tbc oth er ! Mr. Buchanan would hardly thank you for that compliment to his intelligence. Will you be so kind as to point out the par ticular clauc of the constitution from whicu you derive this novel and brilliant concep tion of yours V Mr. Harris had of course, no answer to When Mr. Harris sat down, Mr. Botts took the stand and told Mr. II. that the dif ference between the opinions of Martin Van Bureu and the rest of Mr. Buchanan's sup. porters at the North and himself, cor.-ista in the very important distinction that, whilst they urge the cxerci"e by Congress of the right to adopt the Wilmot Proviso, and to if you will only not tell the people of i.x4 iigiaiu ahout it, thiit Governor Wise l uted just as Mr. Fillmore did 1" Amidst the laughter aud applause conrquent upon this last sally, Mr. Botts concluded.
