I consider myself a pretty good judge of character, and 1 resolved to select an intellectual, moral and well mannered person, ur to give up the idea altogether. Tuesday and Wednesday p.vsed with out any answer. Thurdtiy brought a young man belonging bui lire company, who Btipnlated that tho members of his ' machine" should bo allowed tho privilege of meeting in my p trlor once a week, bm their engine house wss out of order, Mid likewiso mentioned that Le always, in tho morning, took brandy instead of milk in his cofi'. e. To this gcntler.au's proposals I was obliged to answer in tho negative, and, on his pressing the point, to inform him that the reception of tho engine cem pany would of itrlf bean insuperable obstacle. 1 did ';ot think it prudent to add that Lis appeaiv.neo and conversa tion did not tend to make me desirous of his society. Abhough I thought so, I based my objection altogether upon, the Dro company's expectation of meet ing in my purlers. I Lad said enough to offend my vis itor, however, for he thrust his head forward turtlo ftehum, and remarked that I Lad better not "say anything agin Jso. iUO, and that I might bo "hopping glad to Have 'cm meet in my : parlor, lor for all I tiiougnt myseii gome pnnlins, I was only small per tatnrs," and that "Ko. 2 b) boys were fine fellers, and I'd better not contra dict him fca- ay !" an 1 departed, leaving an odor of bud cigars aud Male whiskey behind him. My next applicant wns a maiden lady, who desired accommodations for herself, a pal rot, a kitten, twopondlta, a moukey, and a cabinet of mineralogicnl speci mens. Of courso nbo did not suit me, especially as she was very particular in her inquiries as to my servant girl's capability of Tashir.g and attending upon poodles and parrots. Closely following upon her heels came a gentlemau of respectable appearance and plausible address, with whom, in epite of a pair of very wild, singular eyes, which prottnded beyond the lids until they appeared about to drop out into his cheeks, I was mightily taken. In fact, the arrangements were nearly con cluded, when, to my horror, I made the discovery that he was a professor of spiritualism, and a speakingand singing medium ; likewise, my eyes wcro opened at once to tho tingnlarity of the gentle- man's eyes by this confession, and became aware that the nearest insane asvlnm would, iu all probability, snit him far better than my humble dwell ing. Ho, with an inward thanksgiving for my rescue, I goont of tho scrape a r.clitelv as possible, and tbo "me dium" departed. Then arrived throe very nntidy men, who wanted to share the apartment, and receivo scholars on tho violincello therein. After thesis Lad dt parte 1, I declare I was quite- out of patience, aud almost resolved to give up my notable idea altogether ; but, j ifit I hail come to thin resolution, I lizard onutliT ring at tlio bill. Such a ring! Not a loul, impera tive, at .rapt peal, but a modest, musical tin'.iutabulation, wh;eh betokened an unassuming and well-bred applicant for admission. "A young gentleman" so Tidily iufermcd rue ; ar.d, after pooping in. tho glas to see if my hair was smooth, I ran np ttairs. There was a young gentleman in the parlor a tall, fair young niuu, with struigh , straw-colored ha'r, combed back from Lis forehead with a null, and a white cravat of ministoii il proportion?, lie had dear little hands encased in tlio most delicate of gloves, and was so polite and gentlemanly that, really, I thought to wysclf, I could not possibly find any iic who would s-.iit me better for a boarder. lis was on a vi.sit to tiio i i'y fo he t aid --and hU piinnipal objet in the ,ieh c! ion of h bo:irding place was pri iv y and good nwiety. llu was a church membi r, and kept very early hours. Ho was very fond of children, and would be happy, if I had any of those dear creatures, to'Juhtrnet them in any little accomplishment, such as drawing or u.usie, a.s a., agreeable mannir of pass ing Li'h lei.inie hours. Altethtr h". wai a perfect modt-I Tair. y huppeniiig to run ia jurt then, tho young gentleman took hiv upon U:s knie, and they Iwarm friendly at onco. So, somehow or otht v, j-. via; all pfttl-'d in a few moments, and Sir. OHa.nlo Alberts had agreed to bi coaie the occu pant of my np.irtcient. Alter the bnsi h .d been entirely bertlf.d, he lu't'Lii to chat with me and J'ar.ny, and the other children, who had made their appearance ; and, whilo we were i on- versing, the Lours pass.ul so (pllcKiy that it was d.unei-time lieforo 1 I knew it, and, P alter aud iiiotherJoiin, j coming homo, they were in' rodttts d to our new b.-iarder, and insistul upon Lis ! dining wi'h u-i that very day.

To this prop.i-1 sitiou wo unanimously iv-seuusi umi thu ail sat dowu to diuner, M. Alberts saying grace at i:s comm-.tucL'tu )nt, and expressing, in t'n c inversttion which ensued, such excellent sentiments on all subjects, that we were absolutely cbarmul with him. Very soon after the meal was finished, our boarder pleaded fatigue, retired to his own apartment, and Psrl'cr, J-jhn, and myself, a little later, F.et off for a concert which we were very desirous of hearing, leaving the children in charge of Biddy, with ins' ructions to put them to bed at nine o'clock precisely. "How do you liko Mr. Alberts, my dear ? 1 said to rstdter, as we walked along. "Tolera'dy," replied Psalter; he seems to be a very excellent youna man nut particularly brilliant but very worthy aud wdl-aiannered." "Well, it is better to be good th m to be brilliant, is it not V" I remarked. "Bat how do you know that Mr Alberts i. not botlw" impaired John. "There is a litent fire in his eye, a sup pressed fervor in his voice, that tells mo Lo is truly great. O: such men were martvrs made. Emma, did you uotice how he said graea to-night?

"And Lo is so kind to the children, and so very amiable," faid I. ' I am sure we shall be delighted with Mni. And we walked on together in tho most amiable mood. TLo concert over, wo returned Lome, when, to our great surprise, we folic.! the children still up, and in the parlor. " It is not my fault, mum," said Biddy, when I spoke to ner anont it. " Tho young ginlleman got np after yon was ftone, and has been pbiyiu with em all the evenin; and he sent mo out for cindy for 'em ; and then, when tho fun was over, Lo real 'em a chapter, and bade 'em say their prayers, for all the world as if Lo wero a minister. " Oh I' said Pauny, " he is so sweet !" They talked about Mr. Alberts all the time they wero undressing, and their admiration confirmed mo in my opiuion. Children always have such penetration I The next morning we arose as usual, bnt Mr. Alberts did not make his appearance, and Biddy informed me that ho had requested her not to arouse him if ho should sleep late, as Le never took breakfast, and was very much fatigued by Lis journey. So I cantioned Mm children to bo nuiet, and we sat down to tho tablo without Lim. After 1. W..t 1. . rrontl.inien nfni-ti.il for their places of business, and everything prooeeded as usual till noon ; but stil' Mr. Alberts did not make his appear ance, and I began to ft el rather iur- prised, It was about noon, when two men. stout and sbihi attend wrapped in huge great ctabt, knocked at the basement door, and before any one had timo to open it, steppeul into tho entry. " 1! rr votir r :rdon. ma'am," said tho first in an " be your pardon, but is there any gent 1 sman by thfi nr.nio of Scraggin learning here?" "Xo, sir," I replied. "Nor aiy on named riiillips?" in.p'iro.l tho firm. " No, sir." "Perhaps his name is Alberts" fi 1 tho other, stepping forward. " There is a gent Ionian named Alberts nt present in tho house," I replied. "Ah! then will you bo kind enough to nsk hi:n to ste-p down a minute V .'aid tlio fb'sl spei'ler. "Certainly --if you will walk into the parlor I vwtl call Lini," I said. Accordingly, the two men proceeded to the llocir above, while I rent Biddy to summon Mr. Alberts. Af'er a great d. a! of I'l'.n.'king, j.lio returned with the information tint she could net make hbii hear. "And what is more, mum," she con tinued, "the wind-e.v out onto tho roof of the r-be l is open, and tho curtains blowin' out of it, and it seems as though there was no one in at all." "Take my word for it that tho loom is imply the bird has down," ri.il the first wan. "Wo must unlock the door a.id make sure, however," said tlio serond. 1 stood there i,i perfect astonishment as t'icy premonnced those wordc, and placed, at tho sanio time, two stars upon the bosoms cf their coats. "What could it all mean?" I thought. 'Von look surprised, ma'am," said tlio first policeman. "I suppeso that Mr. Alberts cainothe good, intellect ooul kind of bndv over vet, didn't he? said Lin ju-nytrs, liki it. good boy and all tlint, i h?''

I Hew into l!io buck parlor, for, be it known, that in certain drawers of the book ca-e I kept my silver forks, my surplus money, and several articles of jewelry. Tho drawers were closed. I tried them. Tho locks wero broken und the conteutsgone ; and Mr. Albe rts the nmiabh, virtuous, pions Mr Albert .s was tho thief 1 It was his particular forte so the policemnu told me to impost; himself upon persons who advertised for board ers, as a conscientious yonng man, and iifbr insinuating himself a deeply as possible into their confidence, to take French leave in company with their valuables. I discovered aiterward that during Biddy's absence for the purpose of buying candy, Funny had innocently rovealed to hiiu the contents of the ! b?ok raso drawers, so that his task was rendered comparatively easy. Oh 1 how I felt, ! how provoked I was with myself! But, between you and me, it was a great consolation to know that we wero all in tho samo box although John, who expressed such an exalted opiuion of tho amiable Mr. Alberts, declared that ho had not been deceived for one moment. It was a still greater consolation to got our forks back again, however, and to receive tho news that Mr. Alberts was a resident of Sing Sing, which we did in less than a fortnight. p. S. I havo como to tho unalterable resolution never agaiu to advertise for a siugle gentleman to board. Hip Only Satisfaction.

They aie then i nn iu on a tram rail win- to the circular sjw department, find cut into slices or blanks of I ho thicktiesr. de sired for the length of tho pegs. These aio sorted and the knots cut out, and are then passed on to a long bench which contains six nia.-hint-s composed of fluted rollers. The bl inks are then run between tho.io rollers, which creases on both sides. They are then run through again to cross crease, or mark out the exact sizes of the pegs. They then goto the splitting machines, which aro set with double knives, .red cut the blanks into pes. As they pass tho last machine they live st ried, and all knots and discolored ones removed as they aro brushed olT into largo has kets. The machines are under the caie of young women, who appeared much more happy aud useful than do many of thoso who, thumping at tho piano, would consider such employment menial. The next process is bleaching, which is accomplished by tho fumes of brimstone, which is unhealthy (those who labor hero shorten their lives.) They are then placed in large cylinders, which hold eleven barrels, and havo six hundred steam pipes running through them, and revolve one and one-half times to the minute, di ving two charges per day to each cylinder. They are then passed into largo wooden casks, or cylinders, which, revolving rapidly, polish them by the friction, the refuse falling through wire sieves on screen openings, after which they are agaiu passed into asifter, which separate s all tho single pegs and drops them into tubs or boxes, leaving thoe which have not been separated in tho machine. They are then put in barrels ready for market. The factory running on full time turns out one hundred and fifty bushels, or fifty barrels per day. The sizes go from eight up to sixteen to an i h. The lengths go by tights, two and one-half to twelve. Twenty-six hands are employed, half of them being . women. The products of this mill aro J mostly shipped to Germany and France, and enter largely into the manufacture of toys and fancy goods as well as into tho shoo manufactory. Thus the "genii of mechanism" converts, as by magic, the trees from tho Vermont mountains into articles of use, which floating off througU tlio cnnnncis ci commerce io far away countries, anon return to sparkle tho eyes of happy children in toys, in which thoso toys have become important factors.

The following i from a p.tp"r read before the Maryland Academy of Sci ences : The use of beer has become much b'us general because cf the sus pected use of harmful bitters and prupe sugar. A large piecJ of this so-called grape sugar, taken from the bauds of n youth in this city, who said his father manufactured it, proved, upon analysis, to contain a quantity of sulphuric acid, enough to destroy some half dozen sets I of pood teeth !
