though they say nobody is in town, I may

of us and experience a sort of undefined
uneasiness at our rapid growth in com
merce aud manufactures, yet, when an

with any degree of tact and talent for con cen con

talked right out, with prudence but with
freedom, as 1 would de at home. What is
remarkable, 1 have net met any ether for
eign minister at their tables, with tee ex
ception of a dinner at Lord Palmerston's.
When they speak te me of their friendship
for our country, as they often de, and re

answer that their public journals, aud es
pecially the Tiiiics,' never fail te give us
"a rap ever the knuckles " when the occa

said she, did he net wear the uniform at

I answered of course he did. Well, then,
she answered, why should net a foreign

lliscnssiug the Paster.
41 It seems te me," the fat passenger re
marked, "that the pastor had a great deal
te de with business and politics in these
days. It was the pastor who marshalled
the men of Banford and their families, and
settled Newark ; it was the pastor who
drove the sharp bargains with the Indians
and bought the land for a little money ; a
few old clothes at ether times, and in some
instances for the rum that cheers, but in
toxicates. Xew-a-days the pastor doesn't
interfere with these matters se much."
"Ne," said the cress passenger, "he

The Billing Passion.
It was in 1842 a week-day appoint
ment for a Methodist meeting at Autho Authe
ny's Creek, Greenbrier county, Virginia.
Urether J was te pi each. The
larger game, bear, wolf, and even panther,
were net uncommon thereabouts, auddcer
were abundant. The preacher had some
pulpit ability, and at times was impassion
ed and eloquent. Though net young, he
was unmarried, peculiar, aud seldom
smiled. The congregation were mainly
rude hunters and their rustic families;
and the trusty rille, the faithful deg, tha
picturesque limiting shirt, with ' brain
tanned" moccasin, aud belt, and gleaming
knife, were as sure te put iu their appear
ance at "week day meeting" as the hun
ter himself. The place of worship was at
Father Perkins's double cabin, which had
been built with as much reference te wor
ship as te the comfort of his own family.
This notable man of fourscore was quite
distinguished for piety and his gifts both
in prayer and as class leader, but net mere
se than he had been for his supeiierity as
a hunter. With him the ardor of the pas
sien for the chase was unabated, though
he was entirely disabled by the infirmities
of age. The writer has, at the same sit
ting, been entranced at narrations of the
hazards of his hunter's life, and cditied by
his deep, undoubted, child-like piety.
It was a grand occasion for Brether
J . With a crowded house, and
Father P. in the Amen corner, and
nothing te divert attention, unless it were
the large number of rillcsaud guns, which
as usual, were placed conveniently near
against the fence of the yard, and outside
the wall of the house itself. The opening
service gave great premise of a ' geed
meeting." Beth Brether J and
Father Perkins were quite demonstrative
iu their devotions. The congregation be
came deeply inteicstcd. The preacher
wanned with his subject, argument cul
minated into poetic imagery, and the
pathos and power of unstudied eloquence
melted and overwhelmed the rude audi
ence. But between the eloquent strains of the
impassioned pi-nicher the trained cars of
the- congregation detected the peculiar yelp
of a well-known old hound. The sagacious
brute was understood and. believed, and
the congregation was electrified. Thia
manifestation of intense interest invaded
the rude pulpic aud reused Brether J
te still higher strains, which were present
ly interrupted by the thunder of the ap
proach of a herd of deer closely pursued
by the licet and faithful dogs. Simultan
eously with the climax of the last burst of
eloquence the entire congregation, pcll
incll, broke for the deer.
As the earnest preacher dropped his
hands te the rude desk, with a comical
tone of sadness and disappointment en his
lips, and holy horror depicted en his face,
with bitterness ofteiil he exclaimed : " Ii
is no use '. It is no use '."
Te which the piping voice of the iufinn
and rheumatic old hunter and class leader
responded, with great cariicstncss, "Yes,
it is, Brether ,1 ; they'll catch 'cm
certain sure." Editor's Bracer, in Harp
ers Magazine for Becemher.
Kxpulsieu from the Harden of JMcn.
Old Judge Ciiistavus Swan, of Colum
bus, Ohie, was a "character" of his day.
One day a missionary called en him for a
contribution. " New," said the judge,
Til tell you what I'll de ; I will ask you
a simple question in scripture, and if you
will answer it correctly i will jrivc you
twenty-five dollars ; if net, nothing."
The clergyman brightened up at once and
agreed te the preposition.
"Well, new," said the judge, "can you
tell mc why Ged drove Adam and Eve out
of Paradise ?"
"Certainly," said the clergyman, " that
is a very simple question ; it was because
they ate the forbidden fruit contrary te
the command of Ged."
"There," said the judge, "it is as I sup
posed ; I have asked the question of a
hundred dilfeicnt clergymen and never
yet get the correct answer. I see you ai c
no wiser than the rest. Yeu ought te give
mc twenty-five dollars for being se ignor igner
aut of the most important facts iu connec
tion with the fall of man. But I will send
you away with my simple blessing and the
true answer te the question. If you will
leek into your Bible, which you sccin te
have read se carefully, you will sec it
written : 'And the Lord Ged said, Beheld
the man has become as one of us, te knew
geed and evil ; and new, lest he put his
hand and take also of the tree of life aud
live forever, therefore the Lord Ged sent
him forth from the garden of Eden te till
tnc ground from which he was taken.'
Think," added the judge, with a sly
"twinkle iu his eye, " what a great mercy
it was te drive them out, for suppose they
had by some chance get held of the tree of
life, and thus the race had been perpetu
ated forever en this'carlh. Why, by this
time we would have been piled mountains
high upon each ether, and what an awful
struggle there would have been for life and
happiness." The clergyman departed a
wiser if net a happier man.
Titusvillc Herald, Hep,
What has become of the premised
biography of Thad. Stevens which Edward
Mcl'lierseu was te write. The Old Com Com
eoner's body has been meuldering iu the
grave these many years ; Sumner, Chase
and Seward have followed him te the tomb,
and their memoirs were given te the coun
try longajre. Stevens was equally illus
trious. He was identified with public
questions iu this commonwealth ; he was
great in the forum; he was an Ajaxin'
debate ; in Congress he had no peer for
pitiless logic, dry humor and scathing sar
casm. He had just the elements of life
and the eccentricities that go te malec a
character. Like Byren and Scott, he was
deformed. He was a cynical old bachelor ;
he had a colored woman for a housekeeper,
if, indeed, she was nefcliis mistress ; he
loved cards, and adored liberty. He be
lieved iu hell, yet swore like a pirate. Uc
was a champion of popular education, if
net the father of the common school 'sys
tem iu the commonwealth. He -was stern
a- Cromwell, aud born ler revolutionary
times. He was a geed Greek scholar : his
nephew Thad was his darling, and much
like him, but he was rusticated at Dart
mouth .-college, which was the old man's
almar mater, nis'last will showed net
only his love, but his prudence also. If
Thad would leave liquor alone, he was te
inherit a fortune ; if net, net. The younger
Thad made shipwreck f his life, aud the
cstate gees te public charities. The old
man's bones were laid in a cemetery, which
is no respecter of persons, and where the
slave could lie down with the master, the
black with the white. Thad was one of
the prophets of the Republican dispensa
The Uiraffe, as Seen bj Its Hunter. .
" A little before the sun went down my
driver remarked te me, ' I was just going
te say, sir, that that old tree was a camcl camcl
epard.' On looking where h pointed, I
saw that the old tree was indeed a camelo camele
pard, aud, en casting my eyes a little te
thcri.-ht, I beheld a troop of them stand
ing looking at us. their heads actually
towering above the trees of the forest.
"The giraffes steed looking at the
wagons until I was within sixty yards of
the'm, when, galloping round a thick
bushy tree, under cover of which I had
ridden, I suddenly beheld a sight, the
most astounding that a sportsman's eye
can encounter. Before me steed a troop
of ten colossal giraffes, the majority of
which were from seventeen te eighteen
feet high. On beholding mc, they at once
made off, twirling their long tails ever their
backs, making a loud switching noise
with them, and cautcred along at an easy
pace. The sensations which I felt en
this occasion were different from any
thing that I had before experienced dur
ing a long sporting career. My senses
were se absorbed by the wondrous and
beautiful sight before mc, that I rode along
like cue entranced, aud felt inclined te dis
believe that I was hunting living things of
this world. The ground was firm aud fa
vorable for riding. At every stride I gaiu
cd upon the giraffes, aud after a short
buiiit at a swinging gallop, I was iu the
middle of them, and turned the finest cow

"Once mere I brought her te a stand
and dismounted from my horse. There
we steed together, alone in the wild weed
1 gazed in wonder at her extreme beauty,
while her soft, dark eye, with its silky
fringe, looked down imploringly at mc,
and I really felt a pang of sorrow, in this
moment of triumph, for the bleed I was
shedding. Ne pcu nor words can convey
te a sportsman what it is te ride in the
midst of a troop of gigantic giraffes : it
must he experienced te be understood.
They emitted a powerful perfume, which
in the chase het in my face, reminding mc
of the smell of a hive of heather honey in
September." Five Years in Se. Africa by

i)r. Cox's Eccentricities.
The late Dr. S. II. Cox was world-noted
for many eccentricities of matter and man
ner. On one occasion, as moderator of a
Presbyterian assembly, in the opening
prayer he said f " O, Leitl Jescs Christ,
Theu art the nc plus ultra of our desire,
the sine tjttu non of our faith and the ultima
thulc of our hope." In him it was easy,
natural language, and excited no special
remark. Anether story of him is repeated
by Bishop Coxe as having once been told
te-iiii!!, and which is se geed and se like
his father's wit, that he thinks it is true.
Seme one once asked the old doctor hew
it happened that, out of his large family,
half had left the Presbyterian church.
"0!"'he replied, "it is a case of the
,the virgins of Scripture five were wise
and iQ were Episcopalians !"
