Some wt'eks after they had got settled there cama a young man from Richmond, Ned Marston, a cousin to Miss Emilj', and a great friend to the family. I t aeems that he lost his father three or four years ago, who left nothing but a widowed motliti, and a good education. lie want to practice law, ba t bis heart waa too big for hia pocket; so he came down here and c«mmenccd ovar again.” Did hi> inothar come with him?” 1 asked. “O, y«-a; l>nt the old lady died in a short time after it, and left Ned alone in the world—that is as far as near reta-tioiia are concerned. He took a great fancy to Mias Emily, and the old gentleman, her father, wai* very kind to him and helped him along as much as he could. Things went on very well until last July, when Nad had a hmg talk with Mr. Somers, and finished by asking him for his daughter. I ’eople say that the old man refused him. Any how, Ned left the house in a huff and never weut thsre again.” “But why ahonid Mr. S<miers refuse him, if his daughter loved hia?” I «n-quir<> d. “Well, he told him that it took money to keep a wife, and that he c«uldn’t a s pect to live on love. One night they had a party at John Fairley’s who lived nea« the grove. Miss Emily was invited, and so waa Marston. Old Fairley’s s<m James, who had jus t come home from c<illege, was very polite to her, and was mad enough because she danced with Ned, and would have nothing to say to him. After that he called to see her very often, but ahc always managed to avoid him. “Did her father favor his advances?” said 1, agaia interrupting him. “No. He said she was her own mistress and could do as she pleased. Young Farley said he knew who was a t the bottom of it all, and swore he would fix him for it. lie soon had a chancc and called Ned a poor pettifogger; but he got knocked down for hia trouble. A few days ago, Mr. Somers with Fairley went rabbit hunting among the hills. Tiiey had only been gone a short time when Fairley came running in here almost out of Iwaath, and pale as death. He said old Somers had been murdered, and that Ned Marst^in had shot him, I started right off with him and faund the body lying on its facc, and the back of his head full of shot; and there sat Ned Marston close by it with hia facc on hia hands, and iiis gun close by him. As soon as he saw me coming, he jumped up iered Ipm?’ her whom he loved. All eyes were at advertisements, once fixed upon liis, as though to read his the latest news very soul; but lu; bore the scrutiny with Unflinching firmness, which none but conscious innocence ctiiild have su]iported. An almost breathless silence prevailed while the clerk read the accusation. “Prisoner at the bar,” said the Judge, “you are arraigned here to answer to the charge of wilful and deliberate liiurder. Remember that the law does not dictate what answer j'ou shall give. Are you guilty or not guilty?’’ Eilgar Marston bowed low, and answered in a clear and distinct tone: “Not guilty.” Never shall I fori^et his appearance at that moment. H’s commanding figure was drawn up to its iituKist heighth; the raven lock« which hung in disordered masses over his pali I brow, were brushed aside, and as he uttered those momentous words, he would have served aa a fitting represeBtative «>f innocence repelling the assaults of malice. The clerk now called tiie name of James Fairley. The person thus named mounted the witness stand with an assumed confidence, which he was farfnim feeling; and while endcavoring to maintain nn expression of commiseration for Mie accused, he studiously avoided meeting his glance. He waa a young man of about twenty-two years <>f age, fashionaltly dressed, and posessing a countenance on which dissipation and vice had left uiiniiatakable traces; during tlie examination, his eyes wandered in quick, uneasy’ glnnccs o v c the crowded room, as thoegh fearful of some unexpected intruder, yet his answers to the questions of the oppusing counsel were clear and apparently tiuth-ful. His statemcnl was as iuliows: “Laat 'Minr«i.l»y iiioriiiiig, about ten o’clock,’I went to the jesidciice of the deceased and invited him to join me in a hunting excuision am^'iig the hills. He a t oncc accepted the invitation, and taking his gun, we started togettier. After beating about the bushes for some time, Mr. Somers started a rabbit, which ran down into the hollow near which I was standing. Ue requested me to remain where I was, while he approached it from the other side. As he walked around the hill I lost aight of him. .\lmost at the same instant 1 heard a loud report, and, looking up, saw the prisoner rushing towards me, witli a gun in his haud. As he neared me I discovered that he trembled and waa deadly pale. "Save me! hide me,” he aaid. “I ’m a murderer!” 1 asked him what waa the matter. He pointed to the top of the hill and added; “0 , Emily, whj- did I ever know you.” “ ’Tis false!’’ exclaimed Marston, Iran At this monient a noise was heard a t one of the doors, and an aged man was seen making his way toward the wittiess stand. All gave way before hinl, and John Fairley stood before the astonished justice; Xo hat covered his head, and his silver locks streamed wildly over his brows, while t!ie clenched hands and glaring eyes bespoke the fearful tiinuilt that raged within him. “ I come,” he said, or rather shouted, “I comc to clear the innocent and point out the guilty. Edgar Marston has committed no crime. My son, you arc the murderer. James Fairley approached hia fa»her with palid chaeka and trembling liiubs^ exclaiming: “ It is false, it is falae—he is mad!” “Ofl’ viper! murderer!” screamed the old man, fiorcely; “ touch me not with these hands, red with innocent blood! 1 am not mad I Listen to me and you shall hear a father prove his own son to be a perjured assassin. I was close to the spot where Mr. Somers was brutally murdered, and aaw a cowardly deed committed. I saw my child—he whom I have cherished with nil a father’s pride—fire the fatal shot directly a t his victim, at the same instant that Marston fired a t the top of the hill. Little did he dream that 1 knew and saw it all. The feelings of a parent prompted me to conceal it, hoping that Marstuii would be acquitted for want of evidence. But when 1 heard that my son was the accuser, conscithce would no longer be restraiu(!d, m^ bruin seemed on fire—visions of the gallows and its struggling victims haunted me, even in sleep, while the blood of tha iunoccnt called for vengeance!” Here he staggered forward, and fell senseless to the floor. Loud rose the voice of tba mnltituile, mingled in the cry of “death to the perjuror!’’ as they rushed forward to liberate the astonished Edgar. Jamea Fairley rushed towards him, and drawing a pistol from his breast, fired it, exclaiming: “Think not to ei^ape me thua, Edgar Marston—die!” Fortunately his arm waa struck up by an oflicer. and the ball pierced the cciling. The baflled villain looked sullenly around as thaugh seeking some meaua of escape. Two constables stepped forward to seize him, when he suddenly drew another pistol, and placing it to his own breast, fired. With a howl of agony and despair he sprang high in the air, aad feil a disfigured corpse at the side of his suffering parent. Edgar Marston stepped forth from the hall ol justice a free man. He had undergone a fearful urdeal, and came forth without a blemish. Years rolled on, and Emily Someia is now Mis . Marston. Edgar has become a tically. “1 never uttered those words, 'judge in tha very court which witnessed and 1 ca'l on heaven to witness the truth . the most Irving event of his life, and al-of what 1 say.” A smile of bitter nialignitj' passed over the face of the witness, as he continued ; “1 went in the direction which he had indicated, and there found the body, as has been before stated. I hear the prisoner no ill will, and am sorry to aupcar against him.” tiiough relentless Time has placed its indelible sig;net on hia fortdiead, and threads of silver are tliickly strewn among her auburu locks, they never cease to thank Heaven for their good fortune, and bless the inemovy of the iskxj-ected evidksce.

The Judge addressed the jury, informing them tliat although the evidence was all circumstantial, it bore heavily against the prisoner, and warned them not to let their sympathies interfere with the demands of justice. They consulted without leaving the room, and for a few moments nothing broke the death like stillness which prevailed. At length the foreman stated that they had agreed upon a verdict. “ Is the prisoner a t the bar guilty, or not guilty?” In an instant every car was atretcbed to c.atch the sound. “ (Juilty!” was the response. The multitude waved to and fro as tho’ under the induencc of an electric shock; a wild, heart piercing shriek rent the air, and Emily Somers was borne senseless from the court-room. Women sobbed, and even men—stern, iron-hearted men—did not disdain to drop a few tears of pity. “Edgar Marston,” said the Judge, again addressing him, “have you any reason to show why seutcnco should not be passed Upon yon ?” but is properly a disease of tiie tree, like Karlv InrKKs.-sniN-s.—“Triiin np a chilli the cancer of the human Wly, and, like it, in the way he should go, and when ho is remedied by excision.

There are SO species of insects which prey upon the apple; 12 upou tiie pear; 16 upon the peach; 3.S upon the cherry; and 30 upon the grape. Tlie curculio is the most formidable of all the insects which attack our orchards. It is a native of this country, and has been known upwards of 100 years. It attacks cherries and apples, althoiigh originally' found upon plum trees. T|ic observers of the insects have not yet ascertained decisively where and how it lives. It is a small, brown insect, which makes its appcarancc on the green fruit, cutting a hole in it and depositing an egg, which, hatching into a white worm, causes it to drop from the tree, when the worm escapes to the ground. I t remains in the ground from two to three weeks, iu the pupil state, when it becnmes a perfect insect, like its parent. This insect makes its ajipearance earlier or later, according to the season. I sually, in this vicinity, it is seen about the first of April, and soon becomes plentiful, and may be s^en upon various fruit frees, tho thorn, acacia and butternut. I t is activc throughout the season. The wound which it piakes is crcscent-fc!iaped—hence tho name of “little Turk,” that being the symbol ol that nation. The cherry does not fall to the ground when attacked by this worm, but by soap. If the bbrer has made a lodgment in the tree, it must be cut out or followed in his retreat with a wire.— Yide Collfge Leri It res.

Fi'rtune mocked him all. the while with golden promises, noue of which were realized.” “Yet he was patient and c;»dnring,” remarked one of the company. “Patient aa a lamb—enduring , a martyf',” was the reply. “ Pt)or man! he Was worthy a better fate. He ought to have succeeded, for he deserved success.” “ lie did not succeed?” questioned the one who had spoken of his perseverance and endurance. “No, Sir, he died poor, as 1 have ju'sf said. Nothing that he ever put his hand to ever succeeded. A strange fatility aaein«d to attend every enterprise.” “1 was with him iu bis last nioniriits,” said the other, “and 1 thought he died rich.” “No, he left nothing behind,” was the raply. “The heirs will havo no concern as to the administration o^ hia estate.” “He left a good name,” said ohe; “aud that is aomething.” “And a legacy of nwble deeds, done in the name of humanity,” Said another. “And precious examples,” aaid a third. “Ijessona of patience in suffering, of hope in adversity, of heavenly confidence wlien no sunbeams fell upon his bewildered path,” was the testimony of another. “And high truths, maqly courage, heroic fortitude.” “Then he died rich!” was the emphatic declaration. “Kicher than the millionaire who went to his long Inune on the same day a miserable pauper in all but gold. “Any grasping, soulless man, with a sh«r« of brains, may gather in money and learn the a r t of keeping it; but not one in a hundred can bravely conquer in the battle of life as Edmondstm has done, and step out from the ranks of men a moral hero.” How THS S hark S i ie i .tkrs its Yoixc.—.
