Here is a good one. Once upon.a time
in the village of B ,in the : State of
Massachusetts, lived . a handsome young
maiden of seventeen, whom we will call
Fanny L ; and : George Y— -p- was
her accepted lover. The course of true
love ran smooth, and in due process of
time came tbelhappy termination of their
wooing, and the twain were made one by
the benediction of the holy church.
They, were married early one summer's
morning, and the same day traveled cozily
and happly together, to the stage of the
wedding tQur. A companion, a younger
brother of the bride, mischievous young
rascal, accompanied them, :and well •it
would have been for the happy pair if they
had trusted themselves to their own so
ciety and left James at home to ornament
the dog’s tail and spitball the schoolmas
Well the party arrived at the Galt
House, Philadelphia. While George was
dutifully attending to the confort* of his
young wife, James, in the performance of
his duty as groomsman, went to the office
of the hotel to enter the names and select
appropriate apartments. Pen in hand, a
brilliant idea struck him, and in pursuance
therewith, he entered their names on the
register thus:
James L
Mis Fanny L— .
George Y .
Fanny retired early, being somewhat
fatigued with travel.
George smoked his cigar for an hour
or two, and dreamed of his bachelorhood,
we suppose, and finally he requested to be
shown to his appointments An obsequious
waiter with candle in hand, attended him,
and asked what number it was.
“ With the lady who came with me,”
replied George.
The waiter smiled, hesitated, and then
approached with an exquisitely dressed
clerk, and repeated the question.
“With the lady who arrived' here with
me,” George answered again, blushing to
the tips of his ears.
The clerk smiled and shook his Dead as
if in pity of the young man’s ignorance.
“It will not do, sir: you have mistaken
the house, sir. Such things are not
allowed here, sir-”
“Will not do ? why I only want g°
to bed.”
“That you may certainly do in your
own room sir, but not in the lady’s
apartment, sir.”
“The lady’s apartment ? Why that
lady is my wife.”
The clerk bowed ironically. “All very
fine sir, but I can’t see it, sir ; here is the
entry, sir.”
George looked at the register, and
there was the entry, sure enough.
“Miss Fanny L. •”
“George Y.'
He saw the whole secret at a glance •,
he protested and entreated——but it was
no use. He called James to witness his
veracity, but James was no where to be
found The by slanders laughed and the
clerk was inexorable ; and the poor
fellow was forced into his solitary
chamber to pass his bridal night alone,
and invoking blessings on the whole class
of “respectable hotels” and younger

Old Squire Parish was an hospitable old
souL Every Friday evening it was the
delight of the girls at the Academy, and
the boys at the schools and college, to go
to old Squire Parish’s farm, about six miles
from town, and stroll in the woods, bathe
in the creek, search the orchard and the
ben’s nests, and turn everything about the
premises upside down. And old Squire
Parish would sit in his chimney corner,
pipe in mouth, and tell them stories about
the first settlement of the country, and
how “Old Hickory” whipped the Indians
—-for the old Squire had been in Jackson’s
army—and never let the boys off without
at least one story about the “old man,”
as the Squire delighted to call the General.
One Saturday, about the middle of the
afternoon, Bill Jones—a wild, harum-scar
um young man of some sixteen winters—
rode up to the Squire’s door and hailed
the bouse. His summons was answered
by that black young rascal Josh, who told
Jones that the boys were gone a squirrel
hunting ; “ but you better believe, Massa
Bill,” continued Josh, “ that the gals is
carrying on high. Why, Massa Bill, you
can hear ’em squealing up here.” Jones
soon learned that the .girls had gone to
their usual bathing place, which was at
the foot of a high precipice, and only ap
proached by that side by a solitary foot
path, which was guarded by “ Dinah.”
On (he other side of lay a broad
sand bank, so that no one could approach
it without being seen. Jones had been tq
the Squire’s bouse so often that he knew
all his stories by heart, and it was almost
impossible to find the boys in the woods;
so he determined to have some fun out bf
the girts. About a -quarter of a mile up
the creek lived “Old Aunt Judy,” and
there Jones and his attendant. Josh, im-
mediately proceeded. While Josh went
to the old woman, and for a forpence pur-
chased the latest gourd in her possession,
Jones slipped behind the garden and threw
off his clothes ; then cutting off enough of
the handle end of the gourd to admit his
head, and making two holes for his eyes,
he slipped it on his head and jumped into
the stream. So soon as the gourd reached
the point above the bathing place, it com
menced floating towards the shore until
within a few yards of the bathers, when
it drifted against a limb which overhung
the stream, and lodged. If Jones bad
looked through the loopholes, (he swears
be didn’t) he would have seen a sight that
would have made the gourd itself blush.
On one rock were three or four swimmers,
alternately squatting down and rising up
on their heels, and imitating the cry of
the bullfrog, and when one, would say
“chug'” they would all plunge into the
water, ffog fashion. At another place
they were striving to duck each other,
while a third party was leading, by force,
intf» t|ie water a coy damsel, who had been
too modest to undress before so many folk!.
But Jones’s gourd did not long remain
unnoticed in the water, and the damsel
who espied it sailed up to it, seized it, and
with slight resistance it came oft and
disclosed the curly head of Bill Jones!
Betsy screamed and Bill Jones yelledl
Miss Betsy and the other bathers rushed
up the bank, and Jones, in his fright and
confusion, followed them- Here the girls
turned on him, sezed him and threw him
oh bis face, twined his arms around a
capling, and having bound his bands with
a kerchief, Jones lay defenceless in the
power of his captors. The girls now
leisurely dressed themselves, and then
each provided herself with a trim ■ birch
or willow rod, and without farther cere
mony began applying them to the bade,
sides and legs or poor Jones. Jones twis
ted, and Jones drew himself
up and spread himself wit; he begged and
he prayed. But in vain. His captors
were insensible to pity, until their arms
were fatigued, and their rods frayed into
ribbons. Alas, for poor Jones; he was
not yet to escape. His tormentors provi
ded themselves with fresh instruments,
and stationed themselves in a tow along
the footpath from Jones? tree to the water’s
edge; and on the rock from which he was
to plunge was posted a stout country lass,
whose strength he bad often tried in, a
wrestle, and*wbose endurance he had of
ten tested in a “ barn dance.” At last he
was released, and told that he must run
the gauntlet. He could not but comply.
Straightening himself up and drawing a
long breath, he started at full speed, as
he thought, but at every step something
touched him that accelerated his motions,
and as he was about to take tire last final i
leap, such a blow fell on his rear that (he
sparks flew] out of his eyes, and he boun
ded half across the stream at poe leap.
This rock has been known as "Jones’ heap
ever since.
■Without stopping to see any more of
his fear frumds, Jobes hastened to Aunt
Jndy’s cottage, dressed himself, gave Josh
a thorough kicking, bonomd » aheap
