A professor of universal knowledge had a prince,
who suddenly came in upon the pretender, and put
his wisdom to the test:
“So thou knowest all things,” said the king:
then tell me to-morrow morning these three things
only, or thou shall lose thy bead. .
First—how many baskets of earth there are in
yonder mountain? Secondly—how ranch is the
king worth ? And thirdly, what is he thinking of
at the time.
The professor was distressed beyond measure,
and in his appaVtment_ rolled upon the carpet in
agony, fot* he knew tha’t he must die on the mor
row. His servant learned the trouble and offered
to appear before the king and take his chance of
answering the questions.
The next morning the servant, clothed in his
master's robes, presented himself to his majesty,,
who was deceived by bis appearance and the king
“Tell me, now, how many baskets of earth are
in yonder mountain ?”
“That depends qpon circumstances. If the bas
kets arc as large as the mountain, one will hold it,
if half as large, .two, if quarter, four ; and so on.”
The king had to be satisfied and proceeded.
“Now, tell me how ranch the king is worth ?”
Well your majesty, the king of Henverir and
Earth was sold for thirty pieces of silver, and I con
clude you are worth one piece.”
This was so witty an escape, that the king
laughed and went on!
“Now once more, tell me what lam thinking

professor, whereas it is only his servant.
“Well done,” said the king, “yon shall have

A BJBMABKABM STOBY.
A Litter from Palmyra, N. Y., to the Roches--
ter Eijirfsi, tolls this curious stoty:
A remarkable (leap year) courtship and mar
riage came ofTin our quiet village last week, re-'
suiting disastrously to all the parties canceled.—
The whole case ii not so (pUy developed ag to en
able one to give a full relation. It seem that a
Miss C; M., a highly respected young lady of
twenty years, had becnholding a correspondence
with a young officer in .a military camp in New
Jersey,-who bad sent toy. an introdocfoiy letter
vouching for his respectabjjity. Said letter .was
written by an acquaintance of here, who also was
an officer. Several letters passed, hi sending bis
photograph, and a reqnest for her photogiapb.—-
All this was very pleasant and huaomble. .
On Monday of last week a young. and rather
prepossessing man of about . twepty-flye years,
dressed; in militaiy clothes, arrived here and
called on the lady, and announced himself ps ’ her.
dear correspondent. He was cordially received
as such by Miss C. M , notwithstanding the par
ties failed tp discover any similarity of likeness
between him and the photograph, but that be ex
plained to her satisfaction by saying it wag taken
before he went into the service, three years ago.
Monday and Tuesday things went on lovingly,
and ho visited the morning prayer-meetings, sang,
spoke, and all were greatly edified thereby.. The ;
account he gave of himself was that he hail re- ;
signed about four months previous, was now a
deputy .provost Marshal, was atVieksburg when
taken , prisoner, an inmate of Libby prison eight
months, and was in the Gettysburg fight.
On Tuesday night, much against the wishes of
parents and friends, they were married. The
next day he began to look after some workmen'
to paint and paper bis new father-in-law's house:
His bargain with the painters was fair, show
ing plenty of greenbacks, and offered to pay
down on fulfilment of the contract: He looked at
a number of fine residences, but failed to strike a.
barguiir. In conversation with the clergyman
who married them, be slated that be had lost on
Main street, $5OO, but being a stranger, and hav
ing already gained some 'notoriety,'he would not
advertise it; u he did not dire for the money.”
He claimed to be the .owner of a farm of two hun
hundred acres, near Elmira. Friday .afternoon,
Mr. Officer, who had already assumed two or
three names, procured a carriage and horse of Mr.
Sweeney, of the Eagle, and drove out, but did
not, it seems, return as per agreement. In the
morning, a letter arrived for the bride, which was
opened by the parents, and founddo be from her
true correspondent, the owner of ’the photograph.
This document resulted in sending officer’s Clark
and Howe in pursuit of the team and deluded
bride. At Canandaigua he was arrested, ironed,
and piaced*n durance vile. The eyes of the late
Miss C. M. being opened, she upbraided him for
his deceit, and declared she would: return home,
which she did. Theyoung scamp was knocked
down; before he would yield. To officer Clark he
confessed be was a deserter form the armv, and
wished him to call the provost marshal, preferring
to fail into their bands. Officer Clark deetnitig
it proper to nolifiy the provost, did so.. During
the few minutes absence the prisoner had wrenched
off his irons and buried such papers in bis posses
sion as he thought proper. He is certainly a most
accomplished villian. The: affair has caused
much excitement. It is due the parents of the
misguided young lady to say that they were op-'
posed to the hasty "marriage, and insisted on a
week’s time, but the couple were determined, and
threatened to go somewhere else to have the cere
mony consnmated, and fearing that they would
make the affair more ridiculous-, they reluctantly
and fearfully consented.
An Ice Jam at Niagara Falls.
The Niagara Falls Gazette baa the following in
relation to an exeiting scene which took. place
there a few days since;—A change from the pre-'
vailing - easterly wind to the opposite quarter,
brought down immense quantities of iee from the
lake last Wednesday night. For the first .time, we'
believe, in the recollection of the “oldest inhabi
tants,” the ice formed a complete dam across the
rapids between the bridge and the upper end of
Goat Island. With the. except ion of a few- rods in
width; near the main shore, the rocks below the
ice dam were bare; It was safe walking where
usually flows an impetnons flood. And yet it was
not quite so safe, as was proved Thursday morn
ing, when several young men walidcred over the
barren rocks, and visited a boat that bad been
lodged there for several weeks. . While enjoying a
walk, which we of this generation may never again
hear of being done, the iee dam gave away, arid
the vast volume of water, probably from five to ten
feet deep, came rushing through. The dam soon
disappeared, and the boat that bad Remained fixed
against the ordinary torrent, was Swept away and
over the cataract. Of course there .was a hurrying
toward the island shore and the paper mill pier.—
Some, escaped with a little wetting and a big seare,
while others barely escaped with their . lives. A
young man named Bartow was obliged to leap
from one to another of the floating cakes of ice,
and fully .appreciating the necessity of making land
before being carried too near the Catpract, lost no
time |n leaping from the last cakcorid swimming
several rods to shore. Those who witnessed' the
scene describe it as exceedingly exciting. It oc
curred at an early hour in- thomoming, and hence.
