SEEING A GHOST.
I was in the habit of sitting up read
ing in my room afier retiring for the
night, and on this particular occasion the
family had separated about half-past ten.
I put on my drpssinggown anr1 slippers,
and composed mysel! to read in comfort
at roy Jable. '1 must now pause to de
scribe the room in which I sat. Enter
ing from the staircase, the fireplace was
opposite me, across which was drawn
the table at which I usually sat with my
back to the door. On the left were two
doors, one leading into my dressing
room, the other into a closet. On the
right were two.windows all , the doors
were firmly closed. It was a fearfully
stormy night, the wind . howled and the
rain beat against the windows in the
most melancholy way; whilst the flap
piDff to and fro of a loos shutter, added
to the concert. The look I was readinc
("Kerr's edition of Blackstone's Com
mentaries). was. as I think my readers
will admit, not a book at ell likely to ex
cite my imagination. I had read some
iSours .when t fell asleep in my chair
how long I remained aslepp I don't know.
but I was suddenly awakened by a chil-1
ly feeling Jill over e, as though an icy
wind were penetrating to my bone?.
At the tame time I felt, or thought I
felt, a touch on my shoulder, and, turn
ing round, saw by the flickering light of
my all but expended candle. a tall figure,
dressed in a lcngvciose, oark garment,
with it head surmounted by a covering
not unlike ihe head dresses worn by
RwedL-h noblemen on state occasions,
only without the feather; and dangling
from its shoulders it wore a short cleak
of some shining material, apparently
satin. But his face. Oh! never shall
I forget that face, not that it was posi
tively hideous, vbut the expression o.'
ternness and severity which it bore ren
dered it appalling I gated at he fig
ure in tpeechles awe. when it suddenly
addressed rne in a hotlow voice What
it said I know not. The firght, com
bined with my bewilderment at being
suddenly awakened, had paralyzed my
faculties. It spoke, however, and, speak
ing, glided away through jhe door. Ir
resistable impulse made me follow it,
and, arriving at the door, I saw it gli
ding down the stairs. At this moment
a violent gust of wind thook the house
and my door, .which by some inexplica
ble means had opened during my slum
ber, was slammed to. Should I follow the
apparition or no? I determined to fol
low, and accordingly down I went,
Down, past the rootus where tranquilly
lt epii 'gv little wemirg: f the phantom
which, sisllitd before me down, past the
roogss, all dark aud dismal, but so lately
full cf light and merriment down.
through tbe hall.- We descended the
kitchen stairs, and there, my faculties
having brightened a little, I observed
that a light emanated from and appear
ed to surround the apparition making
everything as distinct as indajilight.
Oo w went, threading the long passages
forming the lower part of the house,
when, all at once, my conductor stopped
at a door, which open d before him,
and we entered. It was the servant's
hall. The. window stood open, and I
observed about the floor several hamp
ers, boxest ho. The phantom strided ou
up" to one of ihe hampers, rchem he sud
denly turned round and faced roe, and
thi? lime his poiimenance wore an ex
pression of pleasure. .His lips moved,
and he addressed me aj follows:
"JiVf?'3 a' n,ce game! You stop
here a minute, and I'll ran like a guod'un
and fetch another constable."
He vanished through the window, and
a thought .truck me all at once. That
long, straight garment, short cloak and
tail htaddreai, the mysieriuus light, the
hampers and ihe open window. Jt muat
be yes, it was policeman, who, at
tracted by ihe open, window, had entered
and, fiudiug the plate neatly packed for
removal, had found his way to the room
iq which he 1 ad tetu a light burning,
and was now gone for assistance, leaving
me in charge. Jloweve r, he soon re
turned,. isixid, withhira, two more, who
all disposed themselve in corners," apd
on the return of ih butler with, a select
pany to superintend the removal of the
hampers, the taid faithful servant and
his attached (by handcuffs) friends were
themselrej removed, and ihpfty aftef-warda-flrent.

A Married Womau's Soliloquy.
BY OWE WHO H E A RED I TV
Yes, it's go ! go ! and get ! get ! get !
for everybod) on erth but one's owl
wife. It I should ask Mr, Slocum to go
out at such a tinje of day lor a water
pail and a basket of oranes, d'ye think
he'd go? Nut he! I might want one
while and take it out in wanting! Or
anges, fgrsooth ! 'Twas oiily yesterday
I asked him to call at William's, for
Charley's shoes. Wonuldn't you have
liked to have heard him scold though!
If he didn't tune up. Always something
wanting! Wished he could go to store
and back again without calling for adoz
en parcels! And whep he came in and
putvihem on pharlie's feet slapped him
for crying because the pegs hurt him j
Poor fellow I he limped rpund till his
father had goue, and ihen pulled then)
off. The pegs were an inch long at
least calculation And now just be
cause Mrs. Brown hiuts at a water pail,
he's up and off iu a minute! Why
couldn't Brown go Just as though her
own husband wasn't good enough to wait
on her. I'd show bun the difference it
I was Brown ! A pretty how'd do we
shall have of it, if things go on at this
rate. I'll ask Brown to do my errands,
see if I don't and then see how he likes
Tt.
If the girls only knew ! But no ; they
wouldaV believe a word of it. You
might talk to tb?m till ' doomsday and
they'd dfctcimiijf lo try it! Bought
wi i3 the best if you don't gel it too
dear." Dear ! 1 wonder what some
some folks pall dtar? There's Nelly
Bly. You might talk to iuer till next Ju
b and she wouldu'i believe a word of it.
But she'll see! She will learn a l&sson
(or her aelf she'll not forgjgt very soon.
If I were a girl again I wouldn't change
my condition again in a hurry! Not I!
There was Slocum always ready to run
hi legs off but-now he'll go sooner
for that fcjrs. Brown, than for his own
fleeh and blood But I'll pay him ; see
if I don't ! won't get nim a mouthful of
supper. He may get his meals where
he does his work ! See how he'll like
that If I should do so, always trying to
pleas other lo!k,s husbands instead of my
own, we should have a pr-Jty kettle of
fih. There's Willie, he's teased for an
orange these three days , and net the
peel of one has been seen yet. There
he comes puffing like a st amboat! If
I had sent him he wouldn't have been
back these two hours. Calling at Mrs.
Brown's too ! If it ain't enough to pro
voke a saint. I'll tell him I'll quit I'll j
I'll but no! he'll like that too well !
the brute ! I won't please him so much.
I'll.stay if it kills me,' and Wiilie shall
have an orange if he wants it, apd no
J thanks Up him either. There he cons

what he has got now. and who ele he is

he wouldn't forget his own children.
Won't Willie have a good meal ? And

That's all we have heard, reader ; for
when Slocum opened, ihe hall d.or Char

Parkersburg (Wet Virginia)
paper
says that several members of the Legis
lature took the cars at Qrafton ate on
the evening of ihe 16ih ult. for Wheel
ing, and among the number was a "Mr.
G , of somewhat large proportions, and
Mr. D., of proportionate undernze.
These two, the stalwart Mr. G., and the
smooth-faced Mr D.,took a berth togeth
er, it seems, in a deeping car. The lit
tle nan laid bebinl.. and ihe good na
luredr waggish Mr. G., was boon sleep
ing and snoring furiously. Mr. G., more
restless under the legislative burdens,
soon arose and was sitting by the stove
when an elderly lady carne aboard and
des-ired a sleeping berth. "All rjght,
madam," said Mr. D., "I took a benh
with my son, and you can occupy my
place in that bertji wbere my little boy
js sleeping." Taking Q. at hjs word, the
lady disrobed and laid down wiih the
boy. Aft" a quiet repose of some time,
he boy, Mr. I., became resiles for some
cause, and began tp Vick arpfind, to the
aunoyance of the old lady. 'So in a ma
ternal manner she patted the boy on the
back and said:" "Lie still sonny; pa
said I might sleep wilh you" "H I
and du," said the legislator; "Who
are you 1 I'm no boy I'm a member ol
the Virginia Legislature ! It issid the
old lady swooned, and could not be
brought to till D. promised that G. should
be impeached.. D. 5wears the thing
shan't rest so. What act)"on the Legis
lature will take to protect its own digni
ty remains to be seen.
On the 20'h ult., Mr. Harlan intro
duced into ihe Senate a bill for the or
ganization of iht portion of the country
known as the "Cherokee Nation" under
a Territorial Goternrneut, to be known
as the Indian "Territory." The bill
was read iwice and referred to theCom
mii'.ee on Indian affairs. Mr. Doolittle
from that committee, reported it back on
ihe 22J nil., wilh slight amendments and
recommended its passage. Tiie necessi
ty of this ueasure is evident from - the
dt plorable condition of ihe Indians who
ire now entirely without Government,
thf guuter poriion ot them having join
ed the resell, leaving their wives and
children in the most abj. cu dfsiitmion.
The Indian must have ihe protection of
ihe nation, and in no way can he obtain
it so completely as by the j jon propssed.
The bill provides in the usual yay,for
territorial ofnewrs. Indians are to com
prise the territorial council, its presiding
officer to be appoiuied by the Governor.
A delegate in Congress is allowedwho
is to be a member z una of ihe Indian
tribes, The bill provides for efficient
government, and seeks lo protect th-e
rights ol ihe Indians, as nothing is to la
done without their consent and concur
rence. Even ihe laws, usajres and trib
al regulations, not in conflct with tbe
United States, are to be observed by the
territoriai judges' The bili provides for
ihe abolition of slavery.
The London Times of February 14th,
asserts that ihe Rebel expectations of
British recognition on tfce condition of
abolishing slavery will not be realized,
and adds: ' ' " " ,
"We have been neotraj in this war
from mere abstract principles of public
policy. . We have stood aloof because it
would have been ihe extreme of politi
cal policy to iaterfere, because we de
sired to remain at peace. Our recog
nition of Southern independence would,
when it was made, be dictated by con
siderations applicable pot ip thu case
merely, but to all such cases, and .would
be wholly unconnected with the profes
sions, wheiher political or moral, of ihe
new Confederacy. International law
and usage give us , ample guidance for
our conduct. It is well known and es
tablished under what circumstanses new
governments may be organized without
offence, and when the Confederates have
achieved ihe neces?ary position, they
will obtain recognition apart from any
reference to their proposed institutions.
The controversy in England about our
civil war appears. to be growing warmer
every day, and strong feeling is manifes
ted on both sides. The anti-s!avery
policy of the Unittd States Government
has added largely to the enthusiasm
and strength of our English friends'..', At
a recent great meeting in Manchester,
the Hon. Lyulph Stanley, who has visit
eil this country, madeji long and power
ful spetch in defense of the Union cause
in ihe course of which he paid a high
tribute of adiairaiion to ih character of
Northern officers who had taken by pref
erence the posts of command in the black
brigades, and among ihem he mentioned
C elci.el Shaw, who was killed at Cha-
lston and whose body was found cover-J
ed with the dead bodies ol his negroes,
who had fought around him to the last.
Vas it a specimen of Southern chivalry,
he asked, when General Beauregard, in
answer to the request ihat the body of
Colonel Shaw might be sent within the
Federal lines for interment, contempt-
uobsly answered that "he had buried him
wilh his negroes ?"j I sayi said Mr.
Stanley, that .1 should have been very
proud to have had suh a grave as that.
At this point the whole audijnee rose to
their feet acd all broke into laud and
lsng continued cheers. .

The experiment of making gunners
