The Pittsburg Press gives an account of a young girl who, about two weeks ago, was arrested in that c i ^ and put up at a hotel, taking a room with the intention, as she stated of remaining four days. During the first day, she visited tKe store of a prominent dry goods merchant and purchased an elegant silk dress pattern, which she ordered 10 be delivered at the hotel. The article was sent as directed, and the carrier delivered it into t..e hands of the purchaser, who took it up to her room, remarking that she would be down with tha money in a few minutes. She WHS all ready to leave the hotel, and take ing her exit by the back door, she left th' carrier "with his thumb in his mouth." When search was made for her, it became apparent tliat the dry goods had been did-dl^ most effectually. The next victim WM a milliner, who had made up the dress in the best style, and delivered it at the hotel of the young lady, according to Older. She took the dress up stairs to try it on, and it it fitted her she would be down and pay for it in a j i ^ . The same game was played as l^fore—and the milliner was swindled. We next hear of tiie romantic Miss at another diy goods house, where she purchased a large bill of dry goods, consisting of a costly man tie, two pair of brown gauntlets, a cash-mere shawl, two setts of uudersleeves, embroideries, etc. These she ordered to be taket to the St Charies Hotel, for the wife of Rev. Dr. Cook, of Allegheny coun-ty. The bundle was delivered, and the clerk of the hotel, on looking over the register, ordered a servant to carry it to Mrs. Cook's room. Tlie servant obeyed, and the carrier remarked that he would wait until the lady came down to pay for the goods He did wait until he tecame tired, and when a servant was sent up to see what the matter was, Mrs. Cook (tht Rev. Dr.'s wife,) had left by the back door. Information was made before the Mayor, but the lady was entirely too sharp for the police, as she could not be found. On fhriday, of last week, a car-riage driver was ordered to call at a dye-ing establishment, and upon stopping there, he was engaged by a lady to carry herself and. ve large bundles of goods, to her residence in the country. He took the bundles, and after the lady had taken her seat, he drove off—On reaching the toll bridge,, the lady remarked to the col-lector that she had no change, and would pay coming back. At a tavern, the lady proposed to a countryman that he should take three of the bundles home for her, which was agreed to. When they had proceeded a couple of miles further the lady requested the driver to turn into a lane, as she had a pair of shoes at a shoe shop across a field, which she had to stop for. The driver, never suspecting for a moment that all was not right, did as di-rected, and when near a little hill, she told him to stop until she run over to the shoe-shop. ' He ste[^ped to the back o( the carriage for a moment, to see if thi wheels were all r i ^ t , and when he looked about for the lady, she was running up the hill at a rapid i>ace, with the two re-maining bundles iri W arms, having been divested of her heai^ luggage. The alaim^ driver started in hot haste after the lady, but she had by this time descended the hill on the opposite side, and disi^PPcaied. He discovered a lot of loose straw, and sttrred it «p thinking she might have hidden there : but she was too sharp for that He next search-ed through a dump of bushes, but in vain ; and having his team to attend to, he gave up pursuit and returned to the city. His st(xy being told to the. police two officers were dispatched in pursuit of this remarkable confidence woman and as they luckily happened upon tl.e farmer who had taken the three bundles home tOT the young lady, he gave her name and that of her father, and directed the officers to their place ot residence; upon reaching the house, a most singular scene followed. The guilty giri locked herself in her ^dian^bar, and the parent s were utteriy astounded at the charge fessea a.l, and was brought u..wu lu ine Miiytn 's office, iu company with her father, who returned a portion of tlie goi dsto the owners, ana'paid lor the balance, not forgetting the carriage hire. He is a wealthy Biid very respectable farmer, and his daughter has everything that she could desire. It is hinted she is not al-together sane, but the Mayor very appro-priately remarked that xhere was consid-erable "method in her mudness." As none of the parties victimized had any de-sire to figure before the puMic as prosecu-tors, and as the young lady's tatber had made all the reparation in his power, his erratic daughter was discharged.

He was greatly respected for hij integrity and intelligence. LONG EVENINGS.—^Long evenings again I Are they not a blessi ig, dear reader ? Do they not make home twice as attrac-tive ? Is not the family group, gathered in a %mi-c:rcle around the glowing fire, chatting or working while one reads the paper aloud, a spectable to move even the flinty heart of the pertinacious old bache-lor who strays into the home circle ? That great institution, the family, is nev-er fully developed except in those long evenings when the severe weather bri igs its members into close commnnion ; when the long, cold evenings gather together the various little commnnities, strength-ening the bonds of affection, promoting mutual good offices, and performing a large share of the work^ of civilization. A blessing on long evenings. KEEP A SMILE ON YODB COUNTENANCE.— Smiles breed dimoles, which are f.ir more ornamental than three dollar vest chains. It's dangerous to sleep in the same town with the proprietor of a perpet-ual frown. Don't walk around looking as dismal as a sick undertaker, or as if you were going to your own funeral. Melancholy, two-thirds of the time, results from hunger or indigestion. Dissect a isuicide and the chances are that you will find his bread basket empty- If you feel down-hearted, avoid hemp and take to victuals. A timely "sirloin" m ght save many a good fellow from an early grave. Isnt that so ? 0/ it Tim and Bill did a game Vpreftjried against her. She finally SOD-BBIGHT AND GLOOJIT UOOBS.—^Ah ? this beautiful world. Indeed, I know not wh:it to think of i t Sometimes it is all gladness and sunshine, and heaven itself not far off .And then it changes snd-' denly and is dark and sorrowful, and the clouds shut out the sky. In the lives of the saddest of us there are bright days iike this when we feel as if we ctmid take the great world in »)ur arms. Then come the gloomy hours when t i e fire will nei-ther bui-n in our hearts, nor on our hearth; and all withont i^ d smal, cold, and dark. Believe me, every heart has its secret sorrows which the world knows not, and tftentin es we call a man cold, when he is only sad. A doctor's wife attempted to move him by her tears. 'Ah !" said he, ' lears are ess. I have analyzed them. They contain * little phosphate of lime, some chlorate <»f s»)d:um, and water." . - ^ . „ , , .

"Certainly, I «xi:«ct to," was the significant reply. *K)nr tastes diilier," as tikamna'aid said to the spgar.
