to do the same. An excellent dinner tvas
soon placed before them, arid everything
passed off most pleasantly. The meal fin

A Good One.
Old Bachelors have become so serious
an evil as to need legislative interference,
we think that the following expedient, adopt

perate age will afford an excellent hint to
some of our statesmen aowards an effectual
remedy. The circtunstan9es are these
A young lady became extravagantly fond of
a young lawyer in the neighborhood', who
treated her partiality with great levity.
Finding her suit rather hopeless, and being
fully determined to enter the state oflinatri-
Mony at some rate or other, she adopted•the
folloviing plan : All at once she was taken
ill, and her malady seemed to threaten
death: At this crisis she sent for the yciling
lawyer to draw her will, and to his astonish
ment; she disposed of an enormous estate, in
'legacies and endoWing public institutions.
She shortly after, however, recovered to
enjoy her own wealth, and the young law
yer began to feel something like love for
her; his address because constant, and his
attentions marked ; in fact in a short time
they were married—but alas ! he had to take
the mill for the deed.
An unsophisticated joker was fishing one .
day in the muddy waters of the eastern por
tion of the Pennsylvania canal, when to his
*great surprise he got a savage bite. He im
mediately gave a jerk :at would have
brought a shark, when lo and behold! he
pulled out a huge snapping turtle and ; threw
it flat on_the tow path. He stood in amaze
ment gazing upon the .singular "beasi,"
when by'and by an Irishrrian came along,
followed by a large dog. The country-mart
tried by gentle words to get the son of Erin
to put his finger into the turtle's mouth, but,
said he, "I'll put the dog's tail in, and see.
what the bloody baste will do." He Mime- ,
diately 'called' up his dog, took his tail into
his hand, and stuck it .into the . turtle's
month. He had hardly gocit in, when Mr.
