Peebles had just asked Mr. Merri
weather's daughter if she would give
him a lift out of bacholordom, and she
had said "yes." It therefore became
absolutely necessary to got the old
man's permission, so, as Peebles said,
that arrangements might be made for
hopping the conjugal twig.
Peebles said he'd rather pop the in
terrogatory to all of old Merriweather's
daughters, and his sisters, and his fe
male cousin, and his aunt Hannah in
the country, and the whole of his fe
male relations than ask old Merl.--
weather. But it had to ho done, and
so ho sat down and studied out a
speech which ho was going to disgorge
to old Morriweather the very first
chance he got to shy it at him. So
Peebles dropped in on him one Sunday
evening, when all the family had mean
dered around to class-meeting, and
found him doing a sum in beer meas
ure, trying to calculate the exact num
ber of quarts his interior could hold
without blowing the head off of him.
"How are you, Pooh ?".said old Mer
riweather, as Peebles walked in as
'white as a piece of chalk, and trem
bling as if he had swallowed a conden
sed earthquake. Peebles was afraid to
answer, because t he wasn't sure about
that speech. Ile know'ho had to keep
his grip on it while he had it there, or
it would slip away from him quicker,
than .an oiled eel through an augur
hole. .So ho blurted right out.

HUNTINGDON, PA„ WEDNESDAY, MARCH 18. 1868.
Within the midnight of her heir,
Calf hidden in its deepest deeps,
A single peet loss, priceless pearl,
All filmy-eyed forever sleeps.
Without the diamond's spnrkliug eyes,
The ruby's blushes—there it lies!
Modest as the tender Pawn
When her purple tail's withdrawn—
The flower of gems—a lily, cold and pale?
Yet, what doth all avail!
All its beauty, ell its grace,
All the honors of itrplace?
Ile who plucked It from its bed _
In the fair Indian Ocean,
Lleth, without life or motion,
In his earthly dwelling—dead!
And hie children, one by one,
When they look upon the sun,
Curse the toil by which he drew
The tteasure from its bed of blue.
Gentle bride, no longer near
In the night black, odorous hair
Such a spoil ? It is not fit
That a teuder soul should sit
Under such accursed gem.
What need'st thou a diadem?
Thou, within whose Fasters, eyes
Thought, starry genius lies ?
Thou, Wilool Beauty has arrayed—
Thou, %I bons Lose and Truth have made
Beautiful ?—in whom we trace
Woman's softness, angel's grace—
All we hope foe, all that streams
Upon us in our haunted dreams I
0, sweet lady I coat aside,
Willi a gentle, noble pride,
All to sin or pain allied.
Let the wild-eyed conqueror wear
The bloody laurel in his hair;
Let the black and snotty vine
Round the drinker's temples twine;
Lot the slavwbegotten gold
Weigh on bosoms hard and cold;
But be thou forever known
By thy natural light alone!
How Peebles Asked the Old Nan,
BY JOAN QUILL
may not bo unknown that you prose

some five years—but—"
"See hero, Mr. P,eobles,you're,,drunk,
and if you can't behave better than
that you'd better leave. If. you don't
I'll chuck you out, or Pm a Dutchman."
"Mr. Merriweather, sir," said Peeb
les, frantic with despair, "it may not

ly man who is not good for a commer
"The bloody deuce he isn't. Now
you just git up and git, old hoss,.or I'll
knock what little brains out of you
you've got left."
With that old Merriweather took
Peebles by the shirt collar and the part
of his pants that wears our first if he
sits down much, and shot him into the
street as if he had just run against a
locomotive going at tho rate of forty
miles an hour. Before old Morriweath•
er had a chance to shut the front door
Peebles collected his legs and one thing
another that were lying around on the
pavement, and arranged himself in a
vertical position, and yelled out :
"Mr. Merriweather, sir : It may
not be unknown to you—";which made
the old man so wretched mad that ho
went out and set a bull terrier on
Peebles before he bad a chance to lift
a brogan, and there was a scientific
dog fight, with odds in favor of the
dog, until they got to the fence, and
even then Peebles would have carried
bull-terrier home, gripped like a clamp
on to his log, if it hadn't been that the
meat was too tender, and the dog feel
ing certain that something or other
must eventually give way, held on un
til he got his chop off of Peeble's calf,
and Peebles went home half a pound
lighter, while Merriweather asserts, to
this day, that they had to draw all the
dog's teeth to get the flesh out of his
mouth, "for ho had an awful holt for
such a small animal."
Of course Merriweatber's daughter
heard about it, and she was so mad
that she never gave the old man any
peace until ho Wont around the next
day to see Peebles about it. Peebles
looked pale as a ghost from loss of
blood and hoof, and he had a whole
piece of muslin wrapped around his off
leg. Merri weather said :
"Poch, I'm sorry about that muss
last night, but if you didn't behave like
a raving maniac, I'm a loafer. I never
see such a deliberate ass since 1 was
born. What's the mEtnifig.of it,"any

And Peebles looked ruefully at his
defective leg and wished he had not
been such a fool, but he wont out and
married the girl, and lived happily
with her for about two months, and, at
the end of that time, ho told a confi
dential friend that he would willingly
take more trouble-- and undergo a mil
lion more dog bites to get rid of her.
ABOUT DRIVING Mu LES.—MOS t every
ono is familiar with the mode of driv
ing (2) a drove of young mules. It is
on the inverse system. The' drover
buys up from fifty to a hundred young,
'unbroken mules, and mounted on a
brood mare, they follow after the same
as do sheep the bellwcather of a flock.
For a' great many years and old tra
der, familiarly called "Old Sol"—who
if ever possessed of any other patrony
mic, had probably forgotten the fact
—was in the habit of bringing in from
the West a drove of the long-eared an
imals and disposing of them to the
farmers of South Jersey. The last
business visit to that section was
about the time . the turnpike mania ra
ged, and a single 'bar was stretched
across nearly every public road to
pass beyond which required the pay
ment of :
For every carriage, sleigh, or sled
drawn by ono beast, ono and a half ets,
For every additional beast, ono and
a half cents.
For every dozen calves, sheep, or
hogs, two cents.
For every dozen of horses, mules, or
cattle, six cents.
"Old Sol" had passed something like
two dozen of these bars on his way
from Canada to Bridgeton, paying
the legal exaction at each under
protest and in very profane language.
Not having disposed of a single mule,
and drawing nigh the end of a long
journey, he was beginning to suffer
front a drouth in his pocket, and to
his dismay, saw the inevitable bar once
more before him. Looking around and
finding his Mules wore leisurely brow
sing along the road somo two or three
hundred yards behind, he hurried up
his pace to the gate, paid'e single toll
for the horse he was riding, end made
a special request of the gate keeper to
shut it up after him and stop those
darned mules which. had been fellow
ing him two or three miles.
"Certainly," said the accommoda
dog keeper, who bad it locked in less
time than it takes to tell it.
"Old Sol" started off again on a
brisk canter, which his mules soon in-
Rated, and as they came to the gate
bar went over it in one, two, and three
order, to the astonishment of: the kee
per, who saw the point of the joke in
a few rgEoplento after, anclaoknewledg,-

The Artificial Propagation of Fish.
WHAT HAS DEEN AND CAN DE DONE
The States of Maine, New Ilatrip
shire, Vermont, Massaohusetts and
Connecticut have appointed fish com
missioners and have made appropria
tions for improving the - rivers running
through these States, so that salmon,
brook trout, and shad may ascend
them to their sources and descend
again at will to the ocean, by means of
fishways built over and around all falls
and dams that now impede their pass
age. It is also intended to restock the
rivers with these fish; both by natural
and artificial propagation. :The com
missioners of Massachusetts -and New
Hampshire have already erected fish
ways over the dams and falls of the
Merrimac, and they planted last year
in its head waters a number of thous
and salmon spawn, obtained• by Dr.
Fletcher, of Concord, from salmon ta
ken in the waters of Now Brunswick
and artificially impregnated. About
90 per cent. of them hatched, and the
young salmon are now in the head wa
ters of the river, and will descend in
the spring to the ocean, over the fish
ways, and return in the fall, weighing
from five to seven pounds each. It is
a well known fact that salmon and
shad always return to the same ricer
and spawning grounds where they
were batched, to deposit their ova. Dr.
Fletcher went to New Brunswick last
fall for another crop of spawn for the
commissioners to plant in the winter,
and he is expected to return in due
time with a few hundred thousand ova
—enough to give this splendid fish a
good start in the Merrimack and its
trilmtarics. J. S. Robinson, of Mere
dith Village, New Hampshire, writes
to me that he has 40,000 salmon spawn
in his hatching boxes, taken and fe
cundated artificially, that show the
young fish' in embryo very plainly,
and these he will probably place in the
Merrimack next summer. He has also
100,000 lake trout spawn with embry
°tie fish. The commissioners will
build fishways on the Connecticut, Sa
co, and other rivers of New England
next year, preparatory to stocking
them with salmon, trout and shad, the
no plus ultra of the sportsmen as well.
This is the first attempt in this coun
try to hatch salmon artificially, and
restock our rivers with them, but it
has been practiced in Europe since
1852, and of Into with great success; so
that salmon are now taken by the
thousand tons where before they took
but a few hundred fish annually. The
spawn of the salmon has been shipped
to Australia, a journey of 6,000 miles,
The cultivation of brook trout arti
ficially has been practiced in - -this
country for several years, as well as in
Europe, with complete success. The
writer of this article was amongst the
first to experiment hero, and he has
hatched as high as 991 per cent. of all
the spawn taken from a trout. Seth
Green, the Alumford, N. Y., fish cultu
rist, hatched over 600,000 last spring,
and will hatch at least 1,000,000 this
spring. Ponds and streams have been
stocked with them all over the coun
try, and in some cases they have
grown to weigh two pounds in three
,Brook trout that batch in the
winter lay their first crop of 'spawn a
year from the next fall, each female
producing about three hundred eggs
and doubling in number yearly until
they roach about 6,000. Salmon begin
spawning at the same age and time,
and produce from 5,000 to 20,000 eggs,
according to the ago and size of the fe
male. When these fish are spawned
and artificially impregnated at the
proper time, nearly all the ova hatch,
and if kept in the batehing-boxes until
they commence to feed in the spring,
and aro then turned into the stream,
they will take care of themselves. In
this way the number of fish can be in
creased a hundred fold annually in
each river, beyond the natural in
crease, till the waters are literally fill
ed with them.
Last June, Mr. Seth Green, ono of
the best propagators of brook trout in
this country, proposed to the fish com
missioners of the previously mentioned
States to go to Holyoke, the highest
point on the Connecticut river to
which shad ascend, and try at his own
expense the experiment of hatching
shad artificially. To this they readily
gave assent. On the 25th of that month
Mr. Green took his first spawn and
found to his utter amazement that
each female shad produced from 56,-
000 to 100,000 ova, according to the
size of the fish manipulated. He found
that these ova were quite small, say
about the size of a No. 8 shot ,and that
they increased in thirty minutes after
impregnation to the size of No. 4. shot,
and remained of that size until they
hatched. In the practiced hands of
Air. Green the spawn were easily pro
cured, but when he came to place
them in the hatching boxes previously
prepared like 1415 own for hatching
trout, he found himself at bay. He
could do nothing with them as they
were so light that they floated off with
the slightest current, and when placed
where there was no current, they all
died. Ho experimented about two
weeks before be succeeded in hatch
ing them to any extent. Finally ho
invented the following form of box
and manner of placing them in the wa-
ter, in which the spawn hatched to
perfection, to his great relief and un
bounded delight. This box was two
feet long, 15 inches wide and 15 inebe4
deep, with a fine wire cloth nailed on
the bottom, and a board 4 feet long
and 4 inches wide nailed on each aide
of the box edgewise, for floats, about 2
inches from the top at the lower end
of the box, and six inches from the
top of the upper end. He placed this
box in the river whore the current ran
about 2 miles a n hour, anchored it with

cords fastened to the floats. This
placed the wiro cloth on the bottom of
the box at an angle of about thirty
degrees against the current, and the
water flowing through the cloth struck
against the lower end of the box slant
ing upwards and hackwards which
gave the water a roll upwards and over
toward the upper end of the box.—
This current lifted the ova from the
wire bottom and suspended them in
the water and kept them constantly
agitated until they hatched.
He put from 50,000 to 100,000 spawn
in a box at a time and hatched as ma
ny 'as 999 in a thousand ! In this
manner ho hatched from 2,000,000 to
6,000,000 daily and 'continued to do'so
until he turned over 40,000,000 'young
shad into the river ! The spawn
hatched in 76 degrees of temperature
in fifty hours; he considered this the
best temperature to hatch them. The
young shad when batched aro three=
eighths of an inch long with the egg
attached to the umbilical cord, on
which they live for three days. After
this they seek their own food and take
to the middle of the river, seemingly
to avoid the small fishes near the
shore, and head up stream, but gradu
ally ing back with the current tow
ard the ocean. After learning this
fact ho placed the young fry as fast as
hatched in the middle of the river to
take care of themselves. Mr. Green
found no female shad undeitwo years
old in the river, but males ono year
which were ton inches long, though
quite slim. The two-years old females
weighed about two pounds each, and
produced about 50,000 ova. Those
three years old weighed three and a
half pounds, while those• four years
old weighed six pounds and furnished
100,000 spawn. The commissioners
placed some of these spawn in the up:
per waters of the Connecticut, carry
ing them in bottles of water on the
ears, and finding that some of them
hatched on the way. •

said "he would have - to go down after

him, swiftly and noiselessly: He went
straight on, she close behind, until he
reached the wharf.
After an apparent inspection of the
surroundings, he stepped down the hill
and took a seat in the office of the
"Magnolia." His wife took a position
where she could see him through the
glass door, and waited for the
