GREEN & SCOTT, je ]Q?d Auctioneer*. EVENING STAR. THE GEHTEEL THIET. A SKETCn OF HEAL LIF1. Richard Johnstone, my old school fel low and friend, was bred to the profes sion of medicine. lie showed early indi cations of talent, and on leaving school was by his own desire articled to a coun try surgeon and general practitioner. Shortly after receiving his diploma, he married and settled in a small town within a few miles of a fashionable wa tering place. Being a young man of good address, exceedingly well read, and possessing withal a thorough knowledge of his profession, united to a capacity lor the hardest work, he made his way rapidly, and speedily became a popular favorite, llis success in the treatment of some critical cases extended his repu tation to the neighboring town, and he was frequently sent for by the fashiona ble visitants who resided there during the season of summer. There his abili ties recommended him to the notice of a circle who were in a condition to remu nerate them well: and moved by the en couragement of his patrons, and by the claims of a young family now raising around him, he look a house in the town, and removed thither in the eighth year of his practice. At (.' he continued to flourish. llis gentlemanly manners and conversational powers made him welcome in ail compa nies; his reputation increased, and in a few years he had monopolized nearly all the genteel practice of the district. For fifteen years more he went on prcspering, earning and spending upon his family, for whose education he spared no ex pense, an income exceeding considerably a thousand a year. He never relin I qnished his old practice in the adjacent I village, but rode out regularly to visit the bed-ridden poor, to whom it was his custom to alford both advice and medi cines gratuitously. It was for their ben efit chiefly, and that of the poor of the ! town, that he had established in a wing of his house a small dispensary, where a young man was always in attendance to make up prescriptions and to admin ister to trilling cases or accidents. i One day, when Dr. Johnstone had just finished his morning levee, and was pre paring to go forth ou his daily round, his assistant brought him a prescription, which, being old and creased, he could not well decipher. My c!d friend, when he saw it, determined, lor some reason or other, to compound the medicine him self. He stepped into the dispensary, waere stood a young girl in a morning dress, and requesting her to be seated, began collecting tho necessary ingre dients. As he stooped to reach a vessel, he looked accidentally into a small mirror that lay on a shelf, and distinctly saw j the giil take from a side-table a gilt phial of costly perfume, and theu place it in her pocket. He at once led her into the house, charged her with the theft, and had her searched by his wife and daugh ters. The delinquent did not deny the crimc, but refused to reveal her name, and became excited and furious when not allowed to depart. Poor Johnstone, who never dreamed of the consequences, sent for an officer, and had her conveyed to prison. That act was the ruin of him. The girl, who was a young lady, the daughter of Cel. J , who, and who^e family, led the fashions of the place The young lady tfas bailed out, owing to his influence, for a trifling sum ; and the bail was forfeited under the pretence that she was too sensitive to appear in answer to such an odious charge. The town was full of military sparks, who united with the Colonel in spreading most infa mous reports about Johnstone?reports which placcd him in the most abomina ble light, and blasted his character for ever. In less thin a month, every house in the town was shut against him. Even tho poor, to whom he had been a bene factor for twenty years, hoc ted him as he walked the streets. His eldest 6on, whom, after making interest in hia be half for years, he had at length placcd advantagecuuly in the town bank, was abruptly discharged ; hL daughters were shamefully expelled from the school where they received their edueation ; and his whole family consigned to gen eral ignominy and execration. Johnstone lost his practice almost at one swoop, and as a consequence he lost his credit. He had saved but little, al most noihing; and was obliged to ?eil oil* his property and retire from the town. Ihe breaking up of his household, the loss of his character, the distress of his Camily?ail together had such an cffect upon his spirits, and indeed upon his health and faculties, too, that he was never the same man aftarwards. lie came to London, and endeavored to open a connection in a middle-class district in Paddington; but the vile reports which had ruined him at C followed him here, and defeated all his exertions. He fell rapidly into poverty; his charming daughters declined into governesses ana ladies' maids; his two boys went off to Australia; his wife died broken hearted; and he himself doomed to a solitary gar ret, and with nothing to subsist on but the hard-earned wages of his girls, fell gradually into premature dc?ay. To me, the sight of him, for the last few years of his life, was a most melancholy specta cle. Though a mere wreck of a man, he made heroic efforts to retain the bearing and the garb of a gentleman. About two years ago, he was in the habit of strolling into my shop every Thursday evening, about closing time, and thrre he would sit and talk about the old days when we were schoolboys together. Concerning the great misfor tune of his life, after he had once told it, I could never get bun to speak again?it shook him too much to do so, and made him ill. He dropped his visits in the spring of '53, and I never saw him after wards. He died, as I learned subse quently, and in absolute want, but in penury, which his youngest child, who THE WEEKLY STAR.

If the recording angel has kept a clear account of poor Johnstone's business, there's a pretty long balancc to be set tled between him and Colonel J and his light fingered daughter, when the day of reckoning comes. 8E2EIA1jISG A Y0U5G LADY. In my young days, says the editor of an exchange paper, I was extravagantly fond of attending parties, and was some* what celebrated for playing the flute: hence, it was generally expected, when an invitation was extended, that my flute would accompany me. I visited a splcudid party one evening, and was called upon to favor the com pany with a tunc on the flute. I, of couise, immediately complied with the request. The company appeared to bo delighted, but more particularly so. was a young lady, who raised her hanJs, and exclaimed that it was beautiful, kc. I, of course, was highly flattered, and im mediately formed a resolution to sere nade the young lady on the following night. Previous to leaving the party, I made inquiry respecting her residence. I started the next night, in company with several young friends, and arrived at the lady's residence, but made a most glo rious mistake be getting under the win dow of an old Quaker. 44 Now, boys," said I, 44 behold the sentimentality of this young lady the moment I strike up the Last Rose of Summer." I struck up, but the window remained closed. The boys str'led. 44 Oh!" said I, 44 that's nothing; it would not be in good taste to open the window on the first air." I next struck up on 11 Old Robin Gray.' Still the window remained closed. The boys snickered, and I sit somewhat flat. 44 Once more, boys," said 1,44 and she must come." I strack up again?4' My love is like the red, red rose." Still there was no demonstration. 44 Boys," said I, 44 she's a humbug. Let us sing 4 Ilome, sweet home,' and if ihat don't bring her, we will give her up." We struck up, and as we finished the last line the window was raised 44 That*8 the ticket, boys," said I, 44 I knew we could fetch her." But instead of the beautiful young lady, it turned out to be the old Quaker, in his night-cap, and dressing-gown. 44 Friend,'' said he, ,4 thee was singing of thy sweet home?and if I recollect right, thee said there was no place like home;?why don't thee go to thy home? Thee is not wanted here?thee, nor any of thy party. Farewell!" We and oar hats went home! A Test op Age.?Why is it that man kind, and more particularly womankind, desire to conceal their ages^ It is a problem which has never yet been solved. Speaking of this a few evenings since, a gentleman relat i in course of conversa tion the following anecdote: Major Ben Russell and Benjamin Bus sey, J^q., met i? a barber's shop recent l*' . 44Ah! bow do ycu do, old Ben Russel!'* said Mr. lJussey. 44Come, now," replied Major Ben, 4,I like that, especially from you, who are about my o*a age," which was a truth. "Upon my word," replied Mr. Bussey, 41you re my senior by ten years." 41Oh, no," replied Russell, who afier a moment's thought, as if seeking for a test, aski-d, 44 W bat is the first thing yoa recollect?" 44The first thing I recollcct," replied Mr. Bussey, 44was hearing people talk about old lien Rvsscl." The Old Scnday Law.?Mr. Drako, in his interesting number of 4'The His tory and Antiquities cf Boston," men tions that the Sunday law of 1716 hav ing proved insufficient to cause a proper obsevance cf Sunday, additional acis were passed in 1727. Under tbestatuie? transgressois were f.o be fined, which, if they would not or could not pay imme diately, they were to be put into jail, "or set in the Cage or Stocks." People were forbid keeping open shops 4tthe evening preceding the Lord's Day or the evening following;" swimming ,4in the water, unnecessary walking or riding in the streets, lanes or highways, or com mon fields of the Town of Boston," &c.m were in a like manner prohibited, under stipulated penalties. Well may Mr. Draki, in a foot noto, ask, "Was this law ever literally executed." Practical Jok.b op an Indian.?A trader in Michigan being annoyed by a half drunken Indian, threatened to burn his bottle the next time he brought it with him. A few days afterwards, the Indian appeared with his pint flask, which the trader instantly seised and thrust into the stove, the Indian making a hasty retreat. A loud explosion fal lowed," the stove, the windows, and the trader all flying in dilTerent directions. The Indian quietly looking on, observed, 4'next time white man burn whisky bot tle, he better see that Dvpont's brand isa t on it." Smart boy ! Soltttde.?Solitude, though it may be silent as light, is, like light, the mightiest of agencies; for solitude is es sential to man. All men came into this world alone; all leave it alone. Even a little child has a dread, whispering con sciousness, that if he should be sum moned to travel into God's presence, no gentle nurse will be allowed to lead him by the hand, nor mother to carry him in her arms, nor little sister to share his trepidations. King and priest, warrior and maiden, philosopher and child, all must walk those mighty galleries alone.
