Courtship'-*L -the Rum Jug; •
The substance, iii. part; of thisiiiie story, I
obtained horn my ienerable friend Dr. John
W. Dorey, of lfaridand, and the hero of it
was a lieutenant tinder' the brave _Commo
dore Winton. Ii tiximplifies the influence of
the rum jug
_in riot only blasting Moral
character, plunder)ng the _purse; destroying
health and , happiness; and • in the production
of crime and wretchedriers,,but in debarring
men' from. accomplishing designs which
might .eventuate is an increase of - happiness
and respectability.
Lieutenant GraOille beldnged to the squat
droll of Commodore Trustee, aerie braver
Mae never woke the thunders of freedem on
•the mighty deep. ,Not only did he possess
the animal "'quality of braverY, • bnt• he was
endowed with higher attributes-of the mind
—he was graced.;With talents • that would
hairs shone brilliantly in. the halls of legisla
tion or the councils of the country. Ele
gantly, educated, !hnd hating whafllorace
calls cacothes logitendi, of itch for talking,
be would •have diatinguislied himself in the
forum as well as in - the field—in 'the Senate
as well as on the sea. • .
But alas - I
our 4rci contracted a love fur
liquor at a very 'etirly age. We all remem
ber the period when the custom of sweeten- .
lug the fawning dram was universal and the
youngest membersd the family were enti
tled to a shirre, .4 was thus, la childhood,
that Granville Lail contraCted the habit,
which grew with ibis-growth, and strength
ened with • bis stietigil. ilis society was
universally 'courted, on account of his droll
way and hurnorouslpranks, as well as his wit
ty sayings, by which he often " set the table
in a roar." .- .
. The Lieutenant : was not wealthy, and he ,
often said that the easiest •way to - acquire I
wealth was td-- bear -do;n and board -some I
rich craft-6y which he meant to marry_a
rich lady.. Hp had mader.several attempts at
couriship, but hadi failed, on account of the
unfortunatehabit to which he was addicted.
'lt was thedelight of the officers on board
of theship, when, seated over .a 'flowing can
at the evening hotq, to listen to the stories,
of Lieutenant GroVille's couttehips, which
were related in 6i) quizzical a- manner; and
contained so mantludicrous incidents, 'that
all hands were thrown into convulsive fits of
laghter, for -he ''soon collected a crowd
around him. i! . -
• 'Well, Granville" said the surgeon, one
evening, when a party of officers. were seated
together on deck, ';'you have never given us
the history of•thatouitship 'of yours:
, 'Sure enough,' ieturned Granville, with - it
quizzical leer of his eye,'• ' and a prettier or
more trim-craft I `never ran ,alongside of in
my life. Oh!' but you bad aught to have
t3e.n her rigged in in her flying jib, and.
spanter, with her otreamers flying, and every
thing inihape ; i:end - you'd, have lunged to
come to and cast anchor alobg side, as I did.

tory 'of the , ha furlough to go to the
East Indies; ;when I returned to Wa-h

might fall in With borne trim built craft, and

widow, who lived .hbout eight miles from

the surgeon;

'Devil a bit of it. Three miles broUght

'‘Go ou,go on,' said several Voices.
'Well, as I was: saying, I was about half
seas over, three" sheets in the wind and the
other shaking, and I couldn't •ri plank
to . saye my soul. My lingua l was so thick
that I couldn't hire spoken the words ithive
thin saplings,' if my life liad• been forfeited,
and to hide matters .from my charmer, I
hold of the chairs and tables when I moved
about. Alter getting thoroughly thawed; I .
cleared the deck for action, add made prep
aration for popping the awful question. I
had. to keep a lookout that I didn't break the
bottle in my-pocket, fur I knew thatif I got
a lee lurch the bottle might go by tfie . board
and betrAY tne. 'This -I dreaded, for I' was
gettitg;ou swimmingly. So I watched my
opportunely, rose. up gently, see r sawing like
ship in the trough of the sea, and held on to
the back part of the - chair.
'Madammadam, said 1, having heard of
your fame, goodness of heart, and, abCve . all,
your bank stock-1 mean yon ---your beauty,
I have visited you for the purpose of ailtior,

' 'Well, what do you 'tidal?. I got I'
'Why, she struck her Colors, of course, and
surrendered,' answered a midshipman, a itli
a coarse laugh. , - 1
'Ptl tell you . what I got—l got a flat
/Without a paddle to steer me home.
' What then.? inquired the Sorgeou, as all
hands buret into a loud roar of laughter..
'Well, I followed the advice of the brave
Lawrence, awl didn't give up the ship. But
confound it, what a blunder, I made-With
her bank atocki! She smiled and simpered,
and invited me to dinner. and

the servant to bring in dion r, I whipt the
eight ounce phial outof - of - my picket, and toot:
a little comfort, hut, by the holy,- sit-a - ons, she
came very near catching me in the act.
'But the dinner, the diener; give us the
dinner,' roared out one of-the' officers.
. ,
you see, another drink made me
glorious; and, as. good leek would have,
there wasn't a acul at the table but her
ship and-your humble servant; so I had a
first rate opportunity to pop' the question
'again., But 3 thought I would flourish
awhile, by why of coaxing :her over ; for
young widows are wonderfully susceptible to
the'tender passion, and the last drink he'd
male me Otte - - eloquent, save that my
tmiguo was rather thick, and an occasional
hiccup spbiled some of my most sublime ef

'She smiled bewitchingly, and, ent:ouraged,
I proceeded.

; Ttiti widow roared o t iu a hoarse laugh;
