the purpose's of sidewalks, cellars, yards,
&c.. the Boulevard is all that it claims
to be and it is not strange that it is ,
coming into favor, as a good article will
always command attention. Messrs.
McGowan & Co., 6.5 Ohio street,. Alle
gheny, are alone authorized to lay the
Boulevard in this vicinity.

A Second Edition.
The "Infant of the period" at 'Squire
Humbert's office, claimed our attention
yesterday. If what transpired concern
ing lt be not 'considered as reflecting in
any degree upon our civilization, a dif
ferent opinion may be entertained of the
circumstances connected with the find.
ing, and exposition for sale, of another
waif, which we have now to relate. A few
days since, in the country adjacent to
Birmingham, some women engaged
in plotting elderberries discovered
among the bushes a female infant,
a month or more of age, half
famished. The novelty Of the finding. if
no stronger feeling, induced them to take
charge of the little creature, hasten home
with it and provide for its wants. Un
fortunately the hands into which the
waif had fallen were experienced in the
raising of children, and were supplied
with a goodly iumber. What had been
done on the impulse of the moment—
thus the noblest deeds are performed—
was now regretted, and bow to
get rid of the encumbrance was
the next consideration. The Idea
struck the beads of the family
of taking the babe to market
with their produce, hoping thus to secure
a "customer" for it, and
bright and early Friday morning they
appeared in the Birmingham market.
They succeeded in attracting much sym
pathy for the object of their solicitude,
and equal disgust for the inhuman expo,
Bitten of it iriahe shambles, but did not
find "customer" at any twice, and the
last account we had of the cust odiansi of
the infant was that they were arranging
to send the child lb the County Home, a
step they should have taken in the !list

;Under this caption the New York

against the deceitful representations of
some of the Life Companies in regard to

Toe very absurdity of these pretences
ought sufficiently to expose their falsity,
but it seems that the ingenuitY and
"mathematics" of the companies are too
much for average common sensejand

actually made to believe that they have
a good thing in their "dividends;'.' even
professional financiers and bankers may

can "eat your cake and hive too;" that
you can get your money's worth of life
insurauce and a dividend besides, and
from the high character of many of the
agents of these companies we are hound
