Extracts from the Biography of Donglas

While the commander was absent, two of
the men in the midhipman's charge re

when it fell out that we dined each in his

and at dinner. 1 said not n word (I am
lorry to remi'tnher.) and did not look that

I both his hands in a most engaging man
ner, and said alojd, with abr ght and lov
I inj; face that 1 can see as I write to you :
For Hod's sake, let us be friends again !
A life's not long enough for this,' "
"A dinner is discussed. Iouglas ,Ter
rold listens quietly, possibly tired of din
ners and declining pressing invitations to
be present. In a few minutes he will chime
in. 'If on earthquake were to engull
I Kngland tomnrrow, the Knglish would
manage to meet nnd dine somewhere
'among the rubbish, just to celebrate the
'event.' A friend drops in, and walk
I across the smoking room to 1 lotiglas Jer
Irold's chair. The frieml wants to enliM
'Mr. Jeirold's sympathies in behalf of a
mutual acquaintance who is in want of ft
(round sum of money. Hut t!is mutuitl
friend has already sent his hat about
among his literary brethren on more than
one occasion. Mr. 'e hat is becoming
an institution, ami friends were grieved
at Iho indelicacy of the pr eeeding. On
tho occasion to which I now refer, the
'bearer of the hat wns nceiied by inv fa
ther with evident dissatisfaction. 'Well,'
said loiiglas Jerrold, 'how much does
want this time?' 'Why. just a four
and two naughts will, I think, put him
straight,' tho bearer of the hat replied.
'Hell, put mo down lor or.o td
hts.' An old gentleman, whom
the nau
I will call Prosy Very, was in tho habit of
meeting my father, and pouring long,
pointless stories into his impatient ears.
On one occasion Prosy related a long, limp
account of a stupid practical joke, con
cluding with the information that the ef
fect of tho juke was so potent, 'he really
thought he should have died with laugh
ter.' Jerrold. 'I wish to heaven you had.'
The 'Chain of Events,' playing at the I.y
'ceutn Theatre, is mentioned. 'Humph,'
ostentatiously says to him, 'Well, you see
I'm all right at last !' 'Yes,' is the reply,
I see you now ride upon your cat's meat,
The conversation turns upon tho fastidi-
ousne-s of the times. 'Why,' says ft niein-
her. 'they'll soon say man inge is improper.'
'No, no,' replied Douglas Jerrold 'they'll
always consider marriage good breeding.'
A stormy discussion ensues, during which
a gentleman rises to settle the mutter in
dispute. Waving his hands majestically

Tho discussion is lost in a burst ol laugh -
ter. The talk lightly passes to the wri -
tings of a certain Scot. A member holds
that the .Scot's name should bo handed
down to a grateful posterity. D. J.: M
qui'e agree with you that he should have

drops in. Brown is aid by nil his friends
to be the toady of Jones. The appear -
mice of Jones in a room is the lroof

hits the influenza, Brown dutifully catches

disappointed with a certain liook written
by one of his friends, and had expressed

Doings in British India.
The despatches and letters from British
India which, not long since, were so eag
erly read, here and uhroad, seem to have
lost entirely their former charm. Tho con
stant repetition of the incidents of n strag
gling cHinpain with its everlasting defeats,
marches, routs and victories, proved too
much tor the patience, of the reading pub
lic, andbO they dismissed the subject from
their minds. Not so the British letter
writers, who still furnish their six long,
broad columns apiece, at every arrival of
the mail to their respective journals.
Tho Times correspondence contains a
description of the massacre which occur
red on the 24th of Iecember, in the Ioab.
The rebels, we are told, finding their re
treat likely to be cut oil' lied in the utmost
disorder, and 4."0 of them were slain,
while the remainder betook themselves
! to the jungles. .Seventeen puiis with am
j munition, all the carts, and most of the
; muskets fell into the hands of the Kng-
li-h. w ho exuect that the stirvivers will
! disperse and go home. Though mroa
! Lin,.l, hud rontrived lo bold some nfth nil
together, it is supposed that this success
complete the subjugation of Southern
(ude, which probably ni'-nns only, that no
more resistence ei m:it.e will be ottered
there. In northern Oude matters stand
as follows: The army there, which is said
to be strong in artillery, is commanded by
the. Begum, the (jueen of Undo. They
hold miny forts, of which the strongest is
Bareitch. Sir II. Grant had been orib'red
to assault t lie latter, and had crosseil tlu,
Gogra for that purpose. It is confidently
expected that ntter tuetall ol llareitcli the
Begum's corps will no longer venture upon
resistance in open battle, that they will
disperse, and that so the rebellion will
have wholly disappeared from Oude. Yet
it may be, nnd is very probable even, that
the dispersed army, scouring the country
in small bands, will necessitate tho con
stant, active aid of the army to carry on
what government there is possible in Oude.

The Springfield :)mL!tcin has i capital
article on thissuljeet. Here nro some
extracts :
We suppose that tho first severe trial a
boy has lo undeigo, is to submit his will
to the "old mull." whom he is taught to
consider his lather. To be restrained in
doors nt umht, to be forbidden to go in
swimming live times a day, or to ho bin
died from pinching tho rest of the child
ren jul for fun, is mi interference with
natural inalienable ri;:!its, every w ay inju
rious lo tho feelings. And then, when
upon some overwhelming temptation, tho
boy asserts his independence of parental
control, and receives a "tanning" with a
switch from a quince bush, either upon
ins iiueK or lii l ure leel it becomes renhy ,
a very serious ll'ing. o never could see
thill the smart ot an opciation like this
was at all assuaged 1 y the ull'ectioniite us
stiranee that it was bestowed out of pure
The next great trial of the boy is to be
obliged by a ci uel muster to sit with the
girls ut school. This usually comes before
the devehipcnient of those undeniable af
finities which, in lifter life, would tend to
make the punishment more endiirnble
To b pointed out na 'gal boy," to be
smiled at grimly by the mu.-ter, who is so
far delighted with his own inetiitble picas
antry ns to give the little boys licence to
laugh nloud, anJ to be placed by the side
o a girl thnt has no hnnkerchief, nnd no
knowledge of tho use of that e.rtiele. wo
submit, is a trial ot no mean magnitude.
Vet we have been obliged lo "sit up close"
.villi big Rachel, laughing nnd blushing
till we came to hate her name. AVe won
der where the overgrown frowzy creature
is now, nnd what tho condition of her
bend is ?
We do not believe that any boy ever
put on his long-tailed coat without a
sense of shame, lie first twists his back
half otl looking at it in the glass, and then
when he steps out of doors it seems to him
as if nil creation was in a broad g'in. The
sun laughs in tho sky ; the cows turn to
look at him ; there are faces at every win
dow ; his shadow mocks him. When he
walks by the cottage where Jane lives, he
dares not look up for his life, Tho very
boards creak with conciousiiess of the
strange spectacle, and the old pair of pan
taloons that stop a light in the garret win
dow, nod wiih derL-ion. If he is obliged
to pass a group of men and boys, the trial
assumes a most terrific stage. Jlis legs get
till mixed up with embarrassment, and
tho flaii of tho dangling nppondagii is felt
upon them, moved by the windot his own
he could not feel worse were 't
a budge of disgrace.
It is a hapiiy time
, for turn when tic gets to church und ;sits
I down with his cont-trils under him; but
: he is still apprehensive with thinking 'of
the Sunday school, nnd wonders if any of
the children will iask
lo "swing
long-tailed blue."
The entrance into society may bo said

Mudel Speech in tho Missouri Legula.
Wo find tho following in the n-porta of
the proceedings of the Missouri Legisla
ture on Friday last. It will at once occur
to the render of Mr. Pitt's speech, that he
is, ns Ids name would imply, a veritable,
descendant of Lord Chatham. His chief
resemblance to that distinguished orator
is said to consist in the possession- of
two legs, and a head with a nose on it.
Bead Mr. Pitt's speech :
Mr. Pitt ottered tho following :
licsolved, That the Speaker be author!
stod to euiiso to tie printed and tiosted, one
hundred bills, announcing '.he Mb of Jan
uary, KV.I.
Mr. Abney I move to lny that resolu
tion on the table.
Mr. Pttt Mr. Speaker, this house pits-
pel i eolations, sir, to celebrate, in an np-
jvroprinte mnnuer the Nth of January.
I bis is l re-hition simply asking thnt no
tice lie given to the public ot that day.
We have declared an intention, and now,
wlii n v e come to publish it, wme gentle
man is suddenly seized with the "retrench
incut gripes," and squirms around like sV
long reu worm on a pin hook. Laugh
ter Gentlemen keep continually talking
about economy. 1 myself do not believs
in Uiugtho public purse with cobweb
strings, but when retrenchment comes in
Contact with patriotism it assumes the
form of "smallness." Such economy is
like that of old Skinflint, who had a pair
of boots made for his little boy, without
soles, that they might last the longer
ILtugter.J 1 reverence "the dny we celo
brnte." It is fruught with reminiscences
the most stirring; it brings to mind ono
of the grandest events ever recorded ia
letters of living fire upon the walls of the
temple of fame by tho strong right arm of
the god of war ! On such occasions we
should rise above party lines and politi
cal distinctions. I never fought under
the banner of Old Hickory, but "by the
eternal" 1 wish I had. I Laughter and
app.J If the old war horse was here now,
he would not know his own children from
the side of Joseph's coal of many coIon
Whigs, Know-Nothings, Democrats, hard,
soft-toiled, scrnmbled nnd fried, LincoU
nites, Douglusitcs, and blatherskites 1 I
belong to no party : I am free, unbridled,
unsaddled, in the political pasture. Like
a 1 ob-tailed bull in fly time, charge around
in the high grass and tight my own flies.
Great laughter. Gentlemen let us show
our liberality on patriotic occasions. WhJ
some men have no more pi triotism than
thnt you could stu'J in the eye of a knit
ting needle. Let us not squeeze live cent
till the eagle on it squeals like a Income -live
or an old maid. Let us print the liilU
a-d inform the co untry thnt we as full of
patriotism as are Illinois swamps of tn.d-
poles. Ijiughtor. I don't believe in do
ing things by halves. Permit me, Mr.
Speaker, to make a poetical quotation
from one of our noble t authors ;
"1 love to see tho grass among the red May roles,
I lovo to see an old gray hor.e, for when be goww

How an Ohio Farsif.b was CArriVATirv
Tho Lowell (Muss.) Xeirt relates tho fol
lowing circumstance, connected with the
marriage of Miss AnnaT. Wilber, an ac
complished New England authoress, with,
a substantial farmer:
"Miss Anna T. Wilber, of Xewburyport,
by her contributions to periodicals, at'
traaeteil the nttention of an educated
farmer in Ohio, who opened a correspon
dence with her. At length they ngreetl
to meet at a half-way point, and if their
impressions on seeing enoh other for the"
first time, wero not ugreeahlo, they would
sepnrnte again ; if otherwise, why we'll
let her tell the story hersalf.
I need not tell how an Ohio farmer firstV
bad 1 is attention attracted toan occasion
nl contributor 4o tho Eastern periodicals,
or what motives thnt prompted htm toad
dress n note of interrogation to said writer
to hi followed by mutual questions and
replies, till the parties became desirous of
meeting, mot, nnd were m irriod. Thor
tinnals of romance nurrato few briefer
courtships, and I may say few more sensi
ble ones.
No meetings by niootjlighl alone; net
frowns of opposing relatives ; no jealousies
of rivals or lover's quarrels. Past the du'
dieums of youth by tho world around
termed old bachelor and old maid we bad
not yet relinquished our faith in human
goodness, or lost the fcrvcr of feoling,
which intercourse with the world 'too of
ten chills. So having fully made up our
minds that wo were congenial, and -ought
to love endi other, wo met and did low
each other. The experience of three year
of married life has satisfied us that the ma
jority of mankind are in the wrong and
wo in the right. I mean to say that we
should learn to lovo mentally and morally
first and personally afterwards."
