Now this worthy man had hardly ever appeard in any society .till his brother George, who was in the navy, oame home on a long furlough, George had the peculiar dash insep- larate from the navy—was manly, generous, brave, and accomplished. He might not have been a model man, as ii oil people accounted his brother, but %» was above censure or. reproach of auy kind, and the lady of whom" I speak at first admired and then loved him. She had good reason for believing the-sentiment to be mutual -but, as her family was rich, haughty, and exclusive, she was well convinced that lie would hot dare make any advances, and she resolved, being old enough to have a right to think for herself, to write him in a way not to be misunderstood. According by she did so ;but, unfortunately, she had been misinformed as to the name of her lover and addressed I her letter to William, instead of George. Nothing could exceed the surprise and aelight of the little man upon receiving this letter. He prepared himself in the most seductive manner to call upon the tlady, letter in hand. She • was aghast! Recovering herself as best she could, she faltered out: " Your name is William, .then 1" The poor innocent was not penetrating. He was full of unexpected rapture, and she—she, too proud to explain —caught, as she believed, in the snare of her own folly, forbore to do so. She married him, .George, indignant, and yet more in sorrow than in anger, joined his ship, and never saw her again. He perished at sea. The lady took up. her self-imposed burden with, a strong, brave spirit. She made poor William a .faithful, dutiful, but certainly rather hiJfei a Teed upon or no, charges-made.

She kept hersecret buried in her own breast till he had gone the way of all the earth, and then, finding her own end approaching, she revealed it, in a fit of weak confidence, to her eldest daughter. Now, here was a woman living a life-long lie, but incapable of dying with it upon her conscience. How much nobler, how much better worthy of.a true woman it had been, to have or/in ed to the truth bravely, and so -abiae the issue? In ohoosing a husband, it is easier to say what a woman should not ohoose than to say what she should, for the best must and will depend on characteristics best known to herself. If she is a strong woman, she may venture to marry a weak man ; but if weak herself, let her beware of this, for she will put her own life out at last, and ten to one do the same ungracious office for her <ITY RESTAURANT. From the Herald of Health. The sexes are fully equal in intellect, in moral sense, and even in physique, (admitting that women were designed to be more delicately organized,) taking the stand-point from the best models, which is the true criterion, all others being exceptional—therefore there is a propriety in admitting, that a woman has'aright to choose her husband, just as much so as for a man to choose a wife> and the only pretext for denying this is based upon the inferior one of sex, only. In saying this, I shall have the whole innumerable army of romance writers and readers, as well as the imbeciles of both sexes, crying out against me: nevertheless I stand to the point,and nail my colors to the mast in defenseofit—thatitis rioht,proper.and delicate for a woman to cho)se her husband; and the man thus distinguished by her ch oice will feel himself ennobled and sanctified, and will reward such a woman with tenfold tenderness j husband; while's, woman with nobler proportions will be -more forbearing, and make up, also, for some of his de ficiencies. Let not any woman marry a man with insane blood in his veins. „Let her not marry one deformed at birth ; the disasters and-aceidental destruction of any members by war or otherwise, may excite her compassion and be no impediment to deep affec- but a congenital defect becomes disease go on accumulating, with all their mental and moral atd physical obliquities, till the earth is a lazar house and pestilent with crime. This is, much of it, due to that false estimate of woman in the world which regards her almost exclusively in the nature of sex, instead of as God's best and purest gift to man, to be his help, his comfort, and his inspiration. It is the woman who. builds the house, and therefore she should take heed how she builds. ~ When the world grows wiser, it will accept her in her higher"aspect of wisdom and forecast— moving like a queen in the midst of her household, her husband known in the gates where he sitteth with the elders, known as, the husband, beloved, and exalted by a wife whose price is above rubies. In the time to come it will be enough to cause the . cheek to tingle with shame to see a discordant marriage; for then women will choose as well as be chosen, ahd she will not lend herself to any relation other than the true and the holy, and man will find his manhood augmented by marriage and the beautiful and holy relations which it involves. In conclusion, I think any woman will not marry before she is twenty, for by so doing-she loses that fresh, joyous, hopeful period of life, and a very essential part of it for the sdke of health, study and consolidation of character—her girllioo'd ; and she will in after life be sure to mourn the loss of this lovely period. She will be twenty at the very least when she marries, and, like a true woman, she will look for a right manly, man, who will be handsome in her oy63, and "represent as nearly as possible.her ideas of masculine perfection—good sense, mental, moral and physical health; and above all, the certain fore-rest and protective- ness, always attractive in the eyes of a woman.

The diarrhea he had bo much dreaded was controlled without serious difficulty,' and hie nervous system kept reesona- bly steady. He was generally hopeful, and appeared much comforted by *St •urance that he was succeeding ia the great work. One evening, however, I found hi* condition a little different from what I expected, and he immediately said frankly that he hed broken over his rule and taken three grains of morphine; his diarrhea had returned, the medicine for checking it was gone and he hated to send for me, and so had done it. He was very much depressed, said it wag wrong, and if I should now abandon him to his fete, he would not blame me. I replied that I was not disposed to give him up, should stick to him as long as he would let me, and that he must not surren- der in the midst of the conflict. He expressed himself very grateful, and said he would not again do anything of the sort. At the end of about two week* he had recovered his appetite, began to sleep pretty well at night, came to visit me at the office, and returned hit work. He was in fine spirits, appearing to be elated at the idea that he was delivered from a habit which had enslaved him. He expressed his thanks to me in the most fervid and glowing terms. His last visit to my office. was on Friday, January 17th ; he asked for the remedy against diarrhea, enough to' last until the next Tuesday, when he would come and report again. I went to hear him preach on Sunday evening. It was painfully evident from his manner that he was returning to his habit. The appointed Tuesday came, but he did not appear. Wednesday passed away, and . still he did hot return. I had to leave town at night, and did • not return till late in the night of Saturday, when I | learned that he was dead—had terminated his. own that day. The cause o Boot &:• Slioe Maker.

I am by no means willing to have it understood that I counsel women to go about " popping the question" to men here-and there like an army of grenadiers ; far from it. A man rarely "pops the question" till he is pretty well assured in his own mind as to the kind of response he will receive, and in all cases a refined woman prevents a lover from explaining himself where she is bent upon a denial of his suit. Literature is full of heroines who. are practicing after the fashion of the re- nowed Spartan boy, and we followed them, through innumerable pages of vapid sentiment, where they are living and acting myriads of lies in order to uphold a theory false in fact and false to nature. The two sexes are one in a scientific point of view, aud there-is no merit in a woman who lays her heart on the al-, tar of pride merely for the sake of pride. It is no worse for>a woman to be rejected than for a man to be so ; if men and'women were high and true, they would each regard the other in so pure, so holy a light that these goings forth of the heart would be too sacred ever to be revealed; they would be too solemn for jest, too deeply real for gossip. They would be hid away, I shrouded like many a human hope, dead but beautiful, in the lone chambers ofthe soul, to be looked upon rev-, erently, just as so many -of us garner in some secret receptacle a leaf, a bud, a lock of hair, whose history is known only to us and the angels. Let our women be free not only to reject, but to choose, also. Men and women are likely to do this without any great expenditure of language,, for the vocabulary of love is more expressive than words. I have known several women of refinement and intelleot who owned that their husbands were rather sought after by them than otherwise, and these matches were certainly among the hap-1 piest I have ever known. Perhaps, if a woman deludes a man in this way into marriage, she feels bound to make his condition a happy one. When I was a ohild, one of my mother's friends was a tall, very reverend, but most elegant woman, who rarely went from home, and was far from entertaining company there, as was the custom in that part of hospitable New England. She belonged to the highest rank in point of wealth and birth, was handsome and highly intellectual, and yet, with all these advantages, she wrecked more than one life for lack of nerve to go through with what she began in fine spirit. There were two brothers in the same town in which she lived, very different in charaoter and inferior to herself in rank, but both very estimable men. The elder was plain, plodding, dull, and pains-taking, but an honest and life in the afternoon pf very sad end tion, hereditary, and by the laws of our being will be repugnant to a wholesome- minded woman. She cannot and will not marry a drunkard. , .She should not marry a diseased, sickly man. * Neither will a wise woman marry an| old man ; for the true idea of marriage is the union of youth, and health, and beauty; a. thorough completeness of spiritual,- mental, and physical life ; and everything short of this is " all but nauseous to a sympathic, penetrative mind, as a. violation of immutable laws. She will not marry a man younger than herself, not simply for the reason" so often .advanced, that a woman grows old sooner than a man, which is true only because of the abuses of .society ; for a woman of sound health and cheer- j ful mind, unswayed by the vulgar and wicked passions of envy, jealousy, and malice, earries in her own breast a fountain of perpetual youth and beauty. Let her be temperate'in all things; preserve her person as fresh as a rose ;i her mind undwarfed by prejudice or idleness ; her soul, with all its affections and impulses, pure and loving, and she may go onward to her eighty, ninety, or a hundred years, generally beautiful to the last, fit for reyerence and admiration, and worthy to sit for one of Miohael Angelo's Siblys. . Moral obliquities of many kinds are so intangible that, unless carried to that excess which shows the best part of manhood utterly corrupt and depraved, a woman is not likely to know them, and she should be unwilling to listen to common scandal; and must not trust to any spy or informer, but rely upon his truth and her own intuitions. If she expect to find Chevalies Bayards, and Admirable Crichtons, and Immaculate Josephs ready for the asking, she will most likely remain without a husband. She can only hope for an approximation to the ideal; but,if she is true-hearted, sincere to the core, unselfish and lovely in her own life, she will be sure to make the dear one whom We have already published a dispatch announcing the suicide of the Rev. G. W. Brush, of- Delaware, Ohio, ahigbly respected minister of that place. In the last number of the Delaware Gazette, we find a long comtnuoicatiojifrom his physician, .Dr. if. Barnes, of Deluwaie, giviug a full and detailed statement of Mr.. NBrush's insanity. The • deceased went to Dr. Barnes, in November, 1866, stating that -he was in the habit efl taking morphine, desired to leave it off, and wished professional assistance against the effects which would follow. He had undertaken this before, and became so prostrated by an Uncontrollable diarrhea, that it was thought best to desist. He considered the habit so degrading, however, that he could not, and must not, continue to indulge jit. . It had been fixed upon him, he said, by the administration of physicians, who had prescribed the drug for his tendency to diarrhea, and for the latent cancer of the tongue until he found himself within the terrible grip of its habitual use. He was determined, now, to diminish the quantity rapidly, and soon dispense with it altogether. He proceeded thus a few days, when some unexpected business required his attention,. which he thought himself unable to transact in the shattered state to which his attempt had already reduced him. He therefore gave it up for that time. He referred to the same matter frequently during the year 1S67, and finally, on the 1st of January, 1868, he went to Dr- Barnes, who gives the following detailed account of the interview, and of what followed : He finally came to my office, on the first'day ofthe present month (January, 1868), saying that his people had kindly released him from labor for two or three weeks, and asking if I still felt as friendly toward him, as when I once before consented to take care of [him at my house, while he should bre^k up that dreadful habit I told him I would do so, if he wished to come, but it.would be necessary for the people to know why he was there, otherwise the faij'tpf his being at my house sick, while hist I own family were living in the same t^wn, would give occasion to injurioustjreports, which could not well be met. He then said the arrangement would not answer without the disclosure referred to, which he was clear from the point where I had seen him last. Having taken a little— just a very little—to relieve the distress *f which he was not yet clear, the appetite returned with the voracity of a hundred demons. He was temporarily overpowered, and [yielded. Then he considered that he had made his last trial, and failed. His day of usefulness was over. He thought u'filseil unworthy to llTe^amongTUeB. The ghastly life of an opium-eater stared him in the face. It was insupportable. He kept his misery to himself, while very kind to his family—as, indeed, he always was. He took more of the drug to appease his agony. It crazed him—drove him out to the barn, and through his own hands suspended him upon a rope. It should be noted that downright insanity ia not un frequently the temporary effect of a few doses of opium. A man who lately attempted suicide in a neighboring town, it is now understood, deelares that he h«« no knowledge of the affair. He is addicted to I the same habit. This transient, but- fearful insanity, would be likely to overtake one returning too rapidly to the use of the drug, after it had been suspended. It probably did come upon Rev. G. W. Brush. His noble wife, who was almost idolized by him, found him within a few minutes, and took him down herself; but alas! she had nothing except his earthly body. He had gone to the other world forever. As Deacon Adams, on an extremely cold morning, in the olden time, was riding by the house of a neighbor Potter, the latter was chopping wood. The usual salutations were exchanged, the severity of the weather briefly discussed, and the Deacon made demonstrations of passing on, when his neighbor detained him witto, " Don't be ia a hur*y, Deacon. Wouldn't you like a glass of old Jamaica this morning t" " Thank yon, kindly said the Deacon, at the same time beginafag to dismount with his usual deliberation. " I don't care if I do." " Ah, don't trouble yourself to get off, Deacon," said the neighbor, merely asked for information, haven'* a drop in the house." The Deacon sighed, mounted horse, and rode away. I We his At a recent meeting of a parish, a solemn, straight bodied, and a most exemplary deacon submitted a report, in -yriting, of the destitute widows and felt so delicate about making, that he 0ther» standing in need of assistance in would make an effort at his own house.) the par;sn. "Are .you sure, deacon, Thereupon, he gave me some papers of morphine, whicn he had caused to be weighed in gradually diminishing doses, beginning with less than half his usual quantity. He reserved a couple, one for each day of a visit he was about to make to some friends in Columbus, requesting me to call at his house on the following Saturday evening, when I should find him returned and sick on account of his dimunition of the morphine ; and that he would then take no more except as I should think best to give it. I went on the appointed Saturday evening; found him weak, trembling, sweating, and aching, especially in the knees. But he rallied somewhat, and conversed well for an hour or so on a that you have embraced all the widows T" He said "he believed he had done so; but if any had been omitted, the omission could easily be corrected." He did not take at all. A man 'visiting a neighbor, found him disabled from having a horse step on his foot. Hobbling out of the stable, the .sufferer explained how it happened—' I was standing here,' said he, 'and tho horse brought his right foot down on mine.' His friend looked at the injured member, whioh was of the No. 14 pattern, and said very quietly, 'Well the horse must step somewhere.' A witness dence in a being court called to give evi- in Connecticut, re- she allows to be head of the republic none and eaten nothiug, as he ea at home not only a happy man, but a progressively good man, growing into spiritual insight, advancing in dignity and manly worth, for she will be his helpmate in building this house. This is plain talk, but the subject demands it, and the world is altogether too squeamish in regard to it, and so variety of subjects. But he had slept specting the loss of a shirt, gave the id. since entering upon his trial. The next day, instead of taking tbe design nated dose, which would have been about five grains, he voluntarily proposed to take not more than three, and the day after still less. I continued to spend the evenings with him for about ten days, gradually following: ■&i Mother said, that Ruth said, ttoat Nell said, that Poll told her, that she see a man that see a boy run through the street with a streaked flannel shirt all checker, checker, checker; our gals won't lie, for mother whipped them a thousfti lying." and has times for
