The Three Vishes.
There was °nee a whin Emperor
who made a law, that to every stran
ger who came to his court, a fried
fish should be served. The e servants
were directed to notice if, when a
stranger bad eaten the fish to the
bone on one aide, he turned it over
and began on the other side. If be
did, he was to be immediately seized
and on the third day thereafter he
was to he put to death. Pat by a
great stretch ofimperial-, clemency,
the culprit was permitted to utter
one wish each day, which the Em
peror pledged himself to grant, pro
viding it wee not to Tire• his life.—
Many had already perished in 'conse
quence of this edict, when, one day,
a count and his young .son presented,
themselves at court. The
_fish was
served as usual, and when the count
had removfd the fish from one side,
he turned at over, and Was about to
commence off the other when he vas
seized and thrown into prison, and
was told of his approaching doom.
Sorrow-stricken, the count's young
son besought the Emperor to allow
him to die lathe room of his father;
a favor which the monarch was
pleased to accord him. The count
was accordingly released from prig
on, and his son was thrown into his
cell in his stead. As soon as this
had been done, the young man said
to the jailors—"You know I have a
right to make three demands before
I die; go and tell the emperor to
send me his daughter and a priest to
marry us." This first demand was
not much to the emperor's taste, nev
ertheless he felt bound to keep his
word, and he therefore complied with
the request, to which the princess
had no objection. This occurred in
times when kings kept their treas
ures in a cave, or in a tower set .a
part for the purpose, like the Em
peror of Moscow in these days; and
on, the second day of his imprison=
- ment the young man demanded the
Emperor's treasures.
If his first demand was a bold one,
the second was not less so; still an
Emperor's word is sacred, and hay
it% made the promise, he was forced
to keep it; and the treasures of gold
and silver were placed at the disposal
of the prisoner. On getting posses
sion of them, he distributed them
$ DineelY-SLI an talli
Boon he had made a
by his liberality.
The emperor began now to feel
exceedingly uncomfortable. Unable
'to sleep, he rose eaPly on the third
morning and went with fear in his
heart to the prison to bear what the
third wish was to be.
"Now," said he to his prisoner,
"tell me what your third demand is,
that it may be granted at once, and
'that, you may be out of hand, for I
am tired of your deniands."
"Sire," answered the prisoner, "1
have but one more favor to request
of your majesty, which when you
have granted I 'shall die content. It
is merely that you will cause the
eyes of those who saw my father
turn the fish over to be put out."
"Very good," replied the emperor,
"your demand is but natural and
springs from a good heart. Let the
'hamberlain be seized," he continued,
turning to his guards.
"I mire !" cried the chamberlain;."l
did not , see anything—it was the
But the steward protested with
tears in his eyes, that be - had- n%t
witnessed anything of what had been
reported, and said it was the butler.
The butler declared that he had seen
nothing of bile matter and tbat it
must have been one of the valets.
But they protested that they were
utterly ignorant, of what had been
charged against the count; in short
it turned out that nobody could be
found who had seen the count com
mit the offense, upon which the
princess said:
appeal to you, ther, as to
another Solomon. I ijhody saw the
offense committed, tile count cannot
be guilty, and my husband is inno
The emperor frowned and forth
with the courtiers began to, murmur;
then,he smiled and immediately
their visages became radiant.
"Let it be so," said his majesty;
"let him live, though I have put
many a man to death for a lighter
onse than his. But bolo not hung,
be is married. Justice is done."
Not long Since a shrewd Yankee
came to Boston from New Hampshire
to engage in business. His first en
gagement was to drive a hack for the
accommodation of the visitors at that
fashionable and elegant hotel, the
Revere house. He was soon put in
charge of two English gentlemen,
who desired to see Boston and its
environs. After a brief visit to the
Navy Yard they ordered the driver
to take them to Bunker Hill. Ar
riving there, the twogentlemen spent,
hutch time in making kthorough ex
amination 'of the ground; and. its Nur
roundirige. Having satisfied their
curiosity so far as the Monument was
concerned, they returned to the hack
where they found the driver sitting
quietly.npon his seat. "I say, driver*'
says one of the Englishmen, "this is
the place, believe, where we,Eng,

When the senior Jenathait Trum
bull was Governor of Connecticut, a
gentleman called, at his house re
questing to see ills Excellency in
private. Accordingly he was shown
into his sanctum. sanctorum ; and the
Governor came forward to moot
Squire W., saying "Good morning,
air ;I am glad to see you." Squire
W. returned the salutation, adding
ite. he did so, "have, called on a very
unpleasanto•erranitzsir, and want your
advice. My wife and I do not live
happily together, and I have been
thinking of gettinga divorce. What
do you advise, sir?"
The Governnpsat a few minutes in
deep thought ; then turning to Squire
W. said, "How did,yon treat Mrs. W
when you ivere*Ourting her and
how did you feel towards her at the
time of her marriage ?" Squire W.
replied, "I treated her as kitidiy as 1
could for I loved her - dearly at.that
"Well, sir," said the Governor, "go
you home and court her now just as
you did then, and love her as when
you married her. Do this in the fear
of God for vie year, and - then tell
me the result," The Governor then
eakt,'irt e e j ig pray." They bowed
in prayer and separated. When a
year had pegged away, Squire W.
called again to see the Governor, and
grasping his hand,said : I have call
ed, sir, to thank you for the advice
you gav e me , and to tell you that
my Wife andl are as happy as when
we were married. I cannot be grate
ful enough for your good counsel."
"I am glad to bear it Mr. W., and I
hope that you will continue to court
your wife as you live." The
result was that Squire W. "'and his

"death watch" (Anobiumstliattim) ie ft
very common inmate of our house.
Among those who are unacquainted
with the habits of insects, therois.a
common superstition that the strange
ticking sound often beard in old
houses is a sign of approachingdeath.
The noise, however is caused by, a
small beetle which during its boring
operations, rubs its neck and thorax
(chest) together by which means
this (to some persons) terrible omen
is produced---a fact which, if more
generally known, would save a world
of useless anxiety and uneasiness.
In the larva state these insects do
great injury to our furniture and the
wood work of old houses which tbey
gnaw continually. When captured
this beetle feigns death, and with
the, strangest pertinacity, preferring,
it is said, certain death under a slow
fire rather to betray the least sign of
vitality. The "death watch" on ac
count of its habits, minute size and
dark color is very seldom seen, and,
as there ire often several individuals
workinglt the same time at their
operations the sound seems to pro
ceed simultaneously from opposite
directions thus adding to the super
stitious terror, wherewith by some
persons, it is regarded*. The great
est evil however to be dreaded from
it is the injury it doss through its
excavai3ation in the wood work of
our houses. It is not larger than a
good sized flea,
A. FAIR OFFER.-A veteran relates
the following : it once happened
that a mule driver was engaged in
leading an unruly mule for a short
distance, which,job proved about as
much as he was able to do, and gave
full employment for both his hands,
as he was thus engaged, a newly ap
pointed brigadier rode by him In all
the consequential radiance of; his
starlight; . when the mule driver hail
ed him as follows:
"I say, I wish that you would send
a couple of men down here to help
me to manage this mule."
The brigadier, indignant at being
so familiarly addressed, sternly re
"Do you know who I am, sir ?"
"Yes," was the reply, "you are
General -, I believe."
"Then why do , you not salute me
before addressing me? inquired the
"I will," responded the M. D., if
you will get off and hold the mule.

Jerome B. Stillifion. Without any

we have hitherto seen , ; and, if we
dare, say so, is one of the, most dra-

Some very deliberate, but not at
all extraordinary, movements were
made by a handsome and extremely
well dressed young man in the city
of Washington last Friday: At
about 111-2 o'clock, A. M , this per
son whose name is J. Wilkes Booth,
by profession an actor, and recently
engaged in oil speculations, saunter
ed into Ford's Theatre, on Tenth, be
tween E and F streets, and exchang
ed greetings with the man at the box
office. In the conversation which
ensued the ticket , agent informed
Booth that a -box was taken for Mr.
Lincoln and General Grant, who
were expected .to visit 'the Theatre,
and contribute to, - the benefit of Miss
. LAttra Keene and satisfy the curiosi
ty of a large audienhe. Mr. Booth
went away with a.jest, and a lightly
spoken "Good afternoon." Strolling
down to Pumphrey's stable, on C
Street, in the rear- of the National
Hotel, he engaged . a saddle horse, a
high strung fast 'beautiful bay mare,
telling Mr. Pumpbreys that Jte should
call for her in the middle of the after
Prom here be Wpdt- to the Kirk
wood Hotel, on the_corner pf Pepu
sylTartia avenue and Twelfth strqq,
where, calling for a card and a sheet
ofnote, paper, he sat down and
wrote upon the first as follows
For 41: r. Andrew Johnson :
I don't wish to disturb you ; are'
you at home? S. W. BOOTH.
To this message, 'which was sent
uR by the obli. ing

turning to his sheet of note paper,
wrote on it. The fact, if fact it is,
that he bad been disappointed in not
obtaining an examination of tbe Vice
President's apartment and a, knowl 7
edge of the Vice President's probable
whereabouts the ensuing evening in
no way affeeied his composure. The
note, the contents of. which are un
known, was signed and sealed within
a few moments. Booth arose, bowed
to an acquaintance, and passed into
the street. His elegant person was
seen on the avenue a few minutes,
and was withdrawn into the Metro
politan Itotel.
At 42. M. he .again appeared at
Pumphreys' livery stable, mounted
the maro he had engaged, rode
leisurely up F street, turned into an
alley between Ninth and Tenth
streets, and thence into,:; an alley re
loading to the rein' of Ford's Theatre
which fronts on Tenth street, be
tween E and = F streets. Here he
alighted and deposited the mare in a
small, stable off the alley, which he
had hired some time before for the
accommodation of a saddle horse
which he had recently sold. Mr.
Booth soon afterward rbtired from
the stable, and is supposed to have
refreshed himself at a neighboring
At o'clock the same evening,
President Lincoln and Speaker Col
fax sat together in a private room
at the White House, pleasantly con
versing. Gen. Grant, with whom
the President had engaged to attend
Ford's Theatre that evening, 'had left
with his wife for Burlington, New
Jersey, in the six o'clock train. Af
ter this departure Linepin rather,
reluctantly determined to keep his
part of the engagement, rather than
to disappoint his friends and the
dienee. Mrs. Lincoln, entering the
room and turning to Mr. Colfax, said,
in a half laughing, half serious way,
"well, Mr. Lincoln, are you going- to
the Theatre with Me or not ?" "I
suppose I shall have to go, Colfax,"
said the President, and the Speaker
took his leave, in company with. Ma
jor Rathbcme, of the Provost Marshal
General's office, who escorted Miss
Harris, daughter of Senator Harris,
of New York. M. and Mrs. Lincoln
reac'hed Ford's Theatre at twenty
minutes before 9. o'clock.
The house was fated in every part
with a large and- brilliantly attired
audience. As the Presidential party
ascended the stairs, and passod be
hind the dress circle to the entrance
of the private box reserved for them,
the whole assemblage having in mind
• recent Union victories, arose,
cheered, waving hats and
chiefs, and raangitStinig • every other,

forced him, after the interruption, to
tell the story aver again. It evident

laughingly to his wife and made a re
mark which was not overheard.
The box in which the President
sat consisted of. two boxes turned
into one, the middle_ partition - being
removed, as on all occasions when a
state party visited the theatre. The
box was on a level with the dressir
de, about twelve feet above the stage.
There were-two entrances—the door
nearest to the wall having been clos'ed
and locked ' the door nearest the bal
ustrades of the dress circle, and at
right angles with it, being open- and
left open after the visitors had enur
ed. The interior was carpeted, lined
with crimson paper, and furnished
with a sofa covered with crintsou-vel
vet, three arm chairs similarly .cover
ed, and six cane-bottomed chairs:—
Festoons of flags hung before the
front of the box against,a background
of lace.
President Lincoln took one - of the
arm chairs and seated himself in= the
front of the box in the angle nearest
the audience, where, partially screen
ed from observation, he had the best
view of what was transpiring on the
stage. Mrs. Lincoln sat next him,
and Miss Harris in the opposite
gte nearest the stage. Major Rath
bone sat just behind Mrs. Lincoln and
Miss Harris. These four were the
only persons in the box..
The play proceeded. The au
dience at Ford's, including Mrs.:Lin
coln , seemed to enjoy it very much.
The worthy wife of the President
leaned forward, her hand upon her
husband's knee, watching every
scene in the drama with amused at
tention. Even across the President's
face at intervals swept a smile, rob
bing it of its habitual sadness. •
About the beginning of the second
act, the mare standing in, the stable
in the rear of - the . theatre, ,was dis
turbed in the midst of her meal by
the.entrance of the young man who
had quitted her in the afternoon. It
is presumed that she was saddled and
„bridled with exquisite care..
Having completed these prepara
tion§, Mr. Booth entered the theatre
by the stagedoor ; summoned one of
the scene-shifters, Mr:John Spangler,
emerged through the same door with
that individual, leaving the doOr open
and left, the mare in his hands to be

the theatre and went in. Ascending
to the dress eirele, be stood fora Miff)
time gazing around upon the audi
ence, and occasionally upon the stag;
in his usual graeeful manner. He
was subsequently observed by Mr.
Ford. the proprietor of the theatre,
to be slowly .elbowing. .his .way
through the crowd that packed .the
rear of the dress-circle, toward the
right side, at the extremity of which
was the box where Mr. and Mrs:
Lincoln and their companions- wets
seated. Mr.. Ford casually noticed
this as a slightly extraordinary syrup.'
torn of interest on the part of an ao
tor so familiar with the routine dale
theatre and the play..
The curtain had arisen on the third
act, and Mrs. Mountchessington and:
Asa Trenchard were exchangipg vi
vacious stupidities, when a young
man, precisely resembling the one de= .
scribed as T. Wilkes. Booth,.appeared
before the open, door of the Presi-,
dent's box, and prepared to enter.
The servant who attended Mr.-
Lincoln • said politely : "This is the
President's box, sir; no one is per 4•
mitted to enter." "I am a Senate," ,
responded the person, "Mr. : Lincoln;
has sent for me." The attendant
gave way, and the young man parsed
into the box. • -

As he appeared at the door taking

ously, "upon whom you are intrud- : ,
