She was thinking of old timea this morning aa ahe rolled oat her flal^ emsto. Fifteen yoaia ago ahe had been getting ready for a pionio, joat aa ahe waa doing now. Bat there waa another in the kitchen then—a young >"■" with a handsome fat» and laughing eyea, and she rcmembeicd how sandly he interfered with her work and how ahe threatened to shower him with the eontenis of the floar-bowl if he didn’t behave himself ; and he had dared her to put her threat into eieoation and ahe had kept her word. Slie conld see him now aa he stood tbat morning looking like • Teritable miller with his eyes full of miaahinf m he begged ao humbly for her to dost it olt And she remembered, aa if it happened yeaterday, how when ahe had undertaken the job, all cf a sudden he took her in his anna and kissed her; and when she shook herself away from him bhe was such a eight to eee, with powdered hair and sn o ^ eyebrows end cheeks as white aa any ghoat’s. And just then her father had oome in and stopped in sorpriee on the threshold, looking from her to John with a twinkle in his eye. And all he aaid was— “ Seems to me you foigot to powder a spot on your cheek, Hester,” and then he went away chuckling, and Heater had proceeded to bmah herself «p, with stmdty threats of dire retributi<« directed at the laughing culprit who'had retreated to a position outside, where he folt secure from feminine wrath. And the next day the quarrel came which had sot his feet in paths far away from that in which she had trod for fifteen year*, end in which she had cxpect to tread until tbe end. And she thought it all oyer this morning with a little aigh here and there. Her romance was not forgotten if it WAS kept out of eight of ourioas eyes. Yesterday she had heard tbat a new preacher was coaung to the picnia He WM to preach his firat sermon on Sunday, aud everybody said he waa a “ powtrful preacher.” And his name was Aehlcy. *' But of course it can’t he him,” ahe said ta henself, aa'sfce dipped ^ e edges of her pies; “ for he was one of the wildest, most rattle-brained fellows I ever kuew, and I ’m sure there wasn’t atiyihicg about him that oould be made into a minister. But he had one of the kindest hearts in the world, and_I the erne to blame.” “ Some one oomisg here,” called oat Sasan, her niece, from the bedroom np ■tairs.

Hiss dusted oflT her hand smoothed her shining hair, gave her collar a twitch and was r»»dy to answer the viaitor’a knock. Something in the laughing eyea which met bera aa ahe opened the door made her start and torn pale, “ Hester Fayne, Fm pretty anr^” he said, crossing the threshold. “ Yes, sir,” she answered, with » little catch in her voice, and yon ”----- "Don’t you know me?” he cried, "Fm Jolm Ashley.

I do not know whether he had any confederates with himornot, but one thing is certain, if he had they took good care to steer clear of him after the trouble.” Henry Evans, aliaa A. L. Barrand, alias Louis Bamel, ah'as Henri Ooor-celles, who ia now in jail in Albany, cliarg^ with attempting to blow np the steamer Drew of the Feople’a Line, baa a atrange and eheckered history. He is about thirty-five yeara of age and of slight build. Hia complexion la dark. Large and very dark |iay eyea, with heavy lids, a hooked nose, a wdl set month, flat ehin, a towering square lore-head, are the only eharacteristios of hia face. In December last there was published some alleged detaila of hia early life, fnmiahed by himself when in the Easton (Po.) Jail, on a charge of swindling. Hia parento came to this country about thirty-five years ago, from Switaerland. When Barrand waa still in hia infancy he carried on his pecca-diloea. In 1866, when only nineteen years ci age, he astoniahed his fnenda by appearing in the uniform of a Major- General in the United StateaAmiy. He exhibited what purported to be a commission signed by the President. Thia document deceived a great nuny people, and it was not until it wassent to Washington that the signature waa foUnd to be a forgery. In 1866 his father died, and by the advice of some of the frienda of the family, Barrand was sent to 4he Limatic Asylum <m BlackweU’s Island. His mother was then residing in France, havii'g left fur that countty shortly alter her husband’s death, and at her request, ia tlM^ear _U77. a genUeman obtained the consent of the autfibrities and got her Fon off the Island ond took him over to Frauce, whero he was consigned to another lunatic asylum. He managed to eseapo, and then commenced his wanderings over the world. Early in the followinR year he made hia appearance in New York, and for embezaling a lot of crosses, rosaries, etc., which he had obtaiued from a peddler, was accommo dated with three years’ free board in the Penitentiaiy. Hr) next turned up as “ civil engineer” and ‘‘director of the San Juan mines, of Arequita, Pern.” Lost fall several newspapers in Gon-necticnt. New Jersey, Pennqrlvania and New York contained reference to an individual who went about the country, living by trick aud device. This was Barrand, but he used a variety of names. His plan waa to seek out large manufac-turera of machinery, and announdng himself as the director of Peruvian mines, give a large order. After being hospitably entertained he went away rejoidng, and almost always before he was considered in any other light than a patron and benefactor. The Grand Jury of Northampton County, Pa., found an in dictment against him last winter for absconding without setthng a little bill at a hotel in Eaaton. He enjoyed the hospitalities of the Northampton Coiuty boarding-house at Easton, Pa., until the 16th inst, when he was liberated. Ho then came to New York. There are no new devdopments yet in the explosion on the steamer Drew, in which he is implicated. Barrand was visited by a reporter, who fonnd him quite comfortable in the Albany JaiL He denied any ooimection with the steamer explosion, and said he would beable to prove hia innocenee. _______ Too Hach OIL A oorreapondent of the Pittobnrg Po^t writing from Bradford, Po., says tliat so much oil is produced in that neighborhood that it cannot be stored to await ita sale, and therefore some 10,000 barrels are daily running to wastes Smce the destruetion of the refining works at Philadelphia the refining oapodty hat been entirely inadequate to the supply of crude oil. and consequently the erude artide has depreciated in price. Near Bradford the wasted oil has so saturated the ground near the wells that great danger is apprehended from a general conflagration. To prevent snch danger, aa far as possible, tbe oil ia dammed in the hollows and ravines through which it flows and set on fire. Bonfires made in this way may be commonly noticed, which at times give the entire regions a grand appearance. As the overproduction is generally depressing to the trade in the oil regions the people there “ not ia oU” e ^ n n tlia hop^ that thia lack of prosperity may iaduea aiaay of ^ ^ a a tiy p e ^ : to leauma their legifi-. .mate oeeaptil^ jM^ Biddag bottar aad <atheriagegffC^ —“ I woald bos yottt eara, oaida ytNugliiiyqf BeUefaoto to beratupid and ti»aaifie tfmirer, “ if—” “ U w l ^ r b a aaxioaslyl^ed. “ If,” ahe wyatod, “ I ooold get a^,hqK laiga ^ ■0^ foe tha p«voa^’'•riPlid^; ..K'- ‘ How l>phold Fever may be Frepagated. In a reoent number of the Popular Sdmee Monthly, My Van De Worker, M. D., of Syracuse, N. Y., under the tiUe “ Typhoid Fever Poison,” reporte seventeen cases of the fever in an isolated snbtub of the dty in which there were but fourteen houses. The first case was imported; thence through the overflowing of the privy in which all the excremrait of the patient had been thrown, a well became contaminated. AU the persons who were taken ill used thia well. It was the constant or occasional oouroe of supply of seven of the fourteen families. No oases occurred in the households who did not drink from thia welL Some eases were develop^ in every family who drew water from i t The families who escaped were expoe^ to every other influence but that of this particular well; their own water supply waa the same, less the privy contamina-tion. It is not imlikely that their own wells received sMne of the overflow from their ownvaulte, but as these were free from typhoid poison, no ill results ensued. About eight yeara ainoe. Dr. Flint, who has studied and written a great deal on the anbjeot, became satisfiea that a souree of typhoid fever existed which was little dreamed of, and whieb at first thought would seem impossible. This soiuos, as he then enunciated it to his home medical aodety (and- not to his knowledge having been betore suggested), is found in ioe. If thiaideaia thoroughly investigated, it will not appear to be very problemi^ieal. In the firat plaoe, the poiaon ia not destrc^ed sr impabred by freezing (someone long ago remarked that ioe often maaksoroour oeda what itdoes not kill) Now, whence comes onr ice supply ? Oftenfrom shallow reaervoira in the midat of neighbor^ hoods of large towna purposely made to receive snrfaoe draiiukge bom all around, under tbe eironeoas idea tbat no harm will ensue, aa freesing ia supposed to purify and reuler harmless what might otherwise be objectionabla. Oieatqnon-tities of ioe ate taken from oanals, from creeka, from atagnant ponds, and from atreamathat are dther the natural or artificial redpiento of surfaee drainage, of the outpourings of sawers, and of ut-cleanlineaa from varioua aouroes. The dangkr feom m taken from improper places ia not ^ y froia' t&iat'wh3S^f^ drunk, but from ite use in refrigeratoxs and preaervators, where milk, butter, fruits, vegetables, and meats are subjected to itB satnrating influence as it vaporizes. Several instences have fallen under the doctor’s observation where the disease, by the most careful investigation, could not be traced to any other sonrce; and if we accept as a faot the statement positively made by Bndd in the L3udon Lvneet, in Joly, 1859, that it never originates de noi’o, but proceeds from a special and speeifio polson,which is capable of dilTaaiou to a great extent, and which preserves its noxious qualities for a long period, even if buried for many months, we cannot reject the hy pothesia of ice infection; and it ia hoped that it will be made the aubjeet of very thorough and careful investigation. The Story of a Frisoa Bevolt. .More than fifty yeara ago a revolt at the Oharlestown (Masa.) prison assumed such proportions that a squad of marines from the Navy Yard had to be called in to quell i t Major Wainwright, the oommanding officer, marched his man into the dining-room, in one end of whidi the oonviota had gathered with knives, files and other weapons such as they could reach. They swore they would die rather than snrrender. The Major ordered his men to load, holding np the bullete to vie then to take aim. Then taking out his watch, he gave the oonviota tbiree min-utea in wiiich to retire to their quarters. For the first minute were there jeers and execrationa; the next minute an oppressive silenoe fell on the angry group, and thelaatminutothey began to dide out at the rear door, ending in a panic-stricften rush. This waa the way the firmnesa of Major Wainwright, backed np by muskets, prevailed. I t Isart the Fish.
