Frink, in this vil­ lage, oU Monday evening the 30th Jan. to adopt measures for the suppression of crimes and 'misdemeanors, particularly lar­ cenies, and for the detection of offenders. An association was formed for that pur­ pose, and the following person's chosen of­ ficers : For this Village. 1st Treasurer, James Clark. Com. of Vigilance, David Van Schaack, Andrew Van Dyck, Arent Van Vleck, John Bray, Justus Hihman. For Millville. 2df Treasurer, Nathan Wild.

Lingers the lovely landscape o’er, Shall be the peace whoso holy smile Welcomes him to a happier shore. The following is extracted from tho New- York Mirror. W e suspect it i s not altogether fiction, but that the writer had in Ins mind’s eye somo occurrence of the kind ho hero describes, to which perhaps ho has added a fcwembcllashi mCnts. H o w everthis maybe, whether the child of fancy, <?r the offspring o f truth, it will readily be conceded, that the fair daughter o f Vulcdn, in her sable vestments,completely out-genera//cd the valliant son o£ fdars, in his armor bright.- E d .H ekal I). , FASHIONABLE WATERING-PLACES. BY A V I L L A G E B E A U , Miss S imper appeared at Saratoga In an elegant suit of sable. She was said to be in mourning for her father, an opulent bro­ ker in Baltimore, recently deceased. Grief had wasted her health, and weeping had washed away her roses, and she was come to recover her appetite, and reanimate her blushes. Miss Simper, of course, was an heiress, and attracted great aflention.— The gentlemen .called her a beauty, and talked a ^fcat deal of her real estate, bank stock, and securities. Sorite of tjie ladies thought her complexion too sallow, and objected to the style of her dresi Mrs. Highflyer said she had not the ai^ o f a wo­ man of fashion, while Capt. Halliard pro­ nounced her a suspicious’ sail, and declared his beiiefthat she was a ^privateer in dis­ guise. The fair stranger, however, walk­ ed daily to the fountain, modestly cast down her eyes when gazed at, and seemed unconscious of all but her own horrors. About this time, Major Fitzconnell ap­ peared upon the busy scene. He was a tall, handsofne man, o f easy address, and polished manners, who .seemed to regard all around him with an air of very polite unconcern.—He was announced as an offi­ cer in his Britannic Majesty’s service, and brother to Earl Somebody, ih En^land.r^- It was reported that he hfad large landed possessions in the west. He did ndt ap­ pear fa seek society, but w*qs too well bred to repel any civilities whieV were offered to him*. The gentlemen v^pfe \^ell pjeased : with his go6t( senscj his knowledge o f the rworld; and suavity of his manners^ but as: he Seemed to avoid the ladiesi- tLey bad little opportunity o f estimating his quali- Majipr Fitzconnell and Miss Siiiaper met by accident at the fountain.. The officer, ‘ Who had filled his glass at her ap­ proach, presented it to the lady, who, ... sippipg the transparent element, dropped her handkerchief The gentleman very gallantly picked up the cambric; and re­ stored it to the oWmer-^but ther blushing damsel, abashed by the, easy attentions o f an elegaiit stranger, ih her confusion lost her reticule which the soldipr gracefully replaced upon her wrist, with a most re­ spectful bow,- ‘ • . - • V ■ ! •„ ' ' A courtesy on the one side, andimother •bow on the other, terminated the civilities of this meeting. The gentleman pursued his walk, and the lady returned to her chamber. That Miss Simper felt duly sensible of the honour of having elicited three graceful congees from the brother - bf an English earl, cannot be doubted ; nor can we suppose, withbul: Tnjusticeifo that, gentleman’s taste, that he saw with indiffer­ ence the mantling blushes which those af- tentions had drawn forth; cerfain it‘is, however, that as they separated in oppo­ site directions, neither of them was seen to cast one longing, lingering look behind.” As I had not the privilege of intruding into either o f their chambers, I cannot Say what fairy forms might have flitted around the magic pillow, nor whether the fair one dreamed of coronets, coats o f arms, arms, kettle-drums, and epaulettes. In short, I am not able to inform the inquisitive rea­ der, whether the parties thought of each other at a ll; but from the extreme diffi­ culty of again bringing twa such diffident persons in contact, I am inclined to think the adventure would have ended here, had not “ chance which oft decides the fate bf mighty monarchs*’^ decided theirs.^ *• * v Miss Simper’s health required her, at­ tendance at the fountain on the following morning at an .unusually early hour; and the Major, while others were sleeping,had sallied forth to enjoy the invigorating fresh­ ness of the early breeze. ‘.They met a- gain by accident at the propitious well,* and as the, attendant, who is usually posted there to fill the glasses of the invalids, had not taken his station, the Major had not only the happiness of performing that of­ fice, blit of replenishing the, exhausted vessel, until the'lady had quaffed the full measure prescribed by the medical dicta­ tor o f this little community. I am not able tersay how often they pledged each other in the salubrious beverage; but when the reader is informed that the guanium prescribed to a delicate female varies from four to eight glasses, according to th^ na­ ture of her complaiht, and that a lady can­ not decorously sip more than pnb. mouthful w'ithout drawing breath, it will be seen that am p le time was afforded on this oc­ casion for a tete-a-tete. The ice being thus broken, and the watet duly quaffed, the gentleman .proposed a promenade, to wlriclj the lady; after some little hesitation acceded ,'and iVheU the great bellsuttimon- edthem to breakfast, they repai^d to the table with healthful hues, produced by the exercise of the morning. At ten o’clock the lady issued forth from her chamber, adorned with new channs, by tho recent labours of the toilet, and strolling pensively, book in hand, to the fiirthcst corner of the great piazza, com­ menced her studies. It happened, at the same moment, that the Major, fresh from his valet’s hands, hied himself to the same cool retreat, to breathe forth the . melan­ choly m'usings of his soul, upon his flute. Seeing the lady he hesitated, begged par­ don for his intrusion, and was*abput to re­ tire—^but the lady assured him that it was ” no intrusion at all,” and laid aside her book. The gentleman was soon seated beside her. He begged to know the sub­ ject of her researches, Eind was delighted .with the taste displayed in the choice of her author; she earnestly solicited a dis­ play of his musical talents, and was en­ raptured with every note ; and. when the same impertinent bell which curtailed the their morning walk, again so.unded jfi their ,I ears, they were surprised to find how swift- t( ly time had flown, and chagriadd that the commonplace operation of eating was so often allowed fc? interrupt the fcas^ of rea­ son and the flpjvofviit, •. f At font o’clock the military stranger handed Mlgs Simper into ari elegant gig, and drove to the neigho.uring village ; where rumor soon proclaimed that this in­ teresting, pair were united in the holy bands; 6f patrimony. For. once, the many Tongues of fame, spake truly—and when fthe h^ppy Major returned with,Ilfs blush­ ing ‘ bTide^ all could see that the embarass- rnent o f the loYer was exchange^ for the 'triumph'ant smile, of tho, delTghted. bride­ groom. ‘ It,|s hardly nece^ary to.ad<i that , such was the salutary effect of this pleasing , ‘event, that; the “ youftg couple’\ found si themselves restored instantaneously toper-*' 'feet health ; and.on the following morning they bade adieu to Saratoga springs. “ This is a very ungenteel affair 1” said - Mrs. Highflyer. *l I npVer heard the fieat of it in my boro.day^l” said a fat fihop- keepeFsjady* \ How fuhpy!” cried one in f y o u n g ladyJ' \ -Bow shdekiog 1” e x c laim e d another “ E g a d , th a t ’s a keen, sm a r t girl f ’ said one gefitjem/’” ' ler^ I Warrant h ^ !’* siiid a second.

'• Several days had riow elapsed, arid peii ther party had ma.de any disclosure to thof other upon the important ' subject - o f fi­ nance.- As they were drawing near the end of iheir journey, the Major thought it; advisable to broach this delicate matter to. his brhle. It was upon a fiiie summev evening, as they sat by a- Window, at an innj enjoying the beauties of an -extensive land­ scape, that this memorable conversatioa occurred. -/.They .had been amusing them-, selves wiih that kind of small talk which . new-mapfied folks find so vastly pleasant t as how much they love one ailotber, and how-happy they iptend to'be, and whafa,’ fine thing it is. for two- fond hearts to he dissolved atid melted down into One, Manj^ examples of Icwe and murder werd related-^the lady told of several distressed swains ^vtjQhad incontinently hangedthein- selves.for their mistresses, and the gentle­ man as often asseverated that not one of those martyred lovers adored'the object of his passion, with half the fervour which feefeltforhis oxan, dear, s^eet, 'darlirg, precious-little Anrte !
