A Sailor's Description of a Dance
Haven't had any fun with the land
lubbers till Thursday night.at a dance.
When I arrived in the cabin found 'em
uuder way on a Spanish dance. Took
my station in line with Susan Tucker
Jell back and tilled, then shot ahead
two fathoms hauled up on tho star
board tack to let another crait pass
and came stern on another sail, spoke
her, nnd bore round against the sun,
and fell in with another sail in full
clmse. Passed twenty sail on same
course, aud when half across to the
shore, drop astern fell back couldnt
fill, so let po anchor and hauled up for
repairs. Next tinio 1 was drawn into
the current by a cowtillion, but didn't
make much headway shoti head with
Betsy Stark, and sailed over to the
other coast. Took a turn opposite ran
abreast twice towards other oralis, and
back astern again moved round to
starboard past ucar partner's lights,
and made sail to berth. Third time
ran into port with the tin no of the
tempest, the Yankee tar's faveritc.
Proceeding along up coast nccording
to the regular order of sailing bore
ahead again rounded to then pass
ing adversary yard arm by ynrd arm,
lucked astern with tho whole squadron,
in circular order of sailing. Sally,

We take tho following from the Ed

Humors of tiie Scaffold. An
Irishman had been convicted of a rob
bery of the Old Bailey sessions, for
which ho was brought up, with others,
to receive judgment of death. The
rloiicT, on being called on by tho
officer of the court in tho usual way to
declare hat he had to say why sentence
of death should not be passed upon
him, advanced to the front of the dock,
w ith a Vncaht stare, and inquired,'
"What was the question;
"You have been convicted of rob.
bcry. What have you to say why sen
tence of death should not bo passed
upon )ou according to law?
"Faith," answered the prisoner, "I
have nothing much to say, except that
do not think 1 am sale in your
The court laughed ; sentence was
pasted, and the prisoner was about to
retire, when the otneer oi tue court
called him back and demanded to
know his age.
Is it my age ye mane I
"What is your age?"
"I believe I am pretty well as ould
as ever I'll be."
A train the whole court was "convuls
ed with laughter;" but the wretched
man, whose mirth-movmg powers were
quite involuntary, was loomed even
at the scaffold to "set the people ill a
roar. In the press-room his irons
were removed, and his arms confined
with cords. This beins done, ho seat
ed himself, nnd in spite of the calls of
Jack Ketch aud ot the slierilla to ac
company them in tne procession to the
ftcaltold, he remained sullenly on the
bench where he had taken up his post
"Come," at lust urged the hangman,
"the time is arrived.
But the Irishman would not move
"The officers are waiting for you,'
said the sheriff. "Can any thing be
done for you before you quit this
No answer was returned. Jack
Ketch grew surly.
"If von won't go, I must carry you,'
"Then you mar," said the prisoner,
"for 1 11 not walk."
"Why not?" inquired a sheriff.
"I'll not be instrumental to my own
death, answered the prisoner.
"What do you mean?" asked the or
"W'hat do I mane?" retorted the
hapless man ; "I tiitiue that I'll not
walk to my own destruction.
And in this determination he persist

where he was turned off, refusing to do
any thing which might be construed
into "his being a party to his own

How She Did It.
The Lawrence A mcrican tells the fol
lowing ktory : A gentleman passing
down Magazine etreet a few days fcince,
was astonished ns he went by a window
to see ft nair of rosv lins suddenly
pressed against the glass nnd a pair
of flasiiinp; blew eyes looking unmis
takable love at him through the
window. It was not in the nnture of
man to resist such an appeal as' this,
and lifting his hat courteously,
ho inquired: "I beg your pardon, but
do von wish to kiss me." The lady
had evidently been mistaken. She
mistook huu for somebody else, and
fled incontinently from the room.
The centlemnn went on his way; but
that same night was introduced to the
lady at a ball. It is needless to say
that they recogniled each other. After
the usual courteous expressions of a
first acquaintance, the gentleman in
quired if the lady was fond of kissing.
Oh, not at all, he said, "but my
lips aro very fevership, and of cold
mornings I sometimes press thrm
against the window panes to chill
