I sprang to my feet and asked him what

Simplicity of Euglisli Dross.
In the families of many of the nobility
and gentry of England, possessing an
annua income which of itself would bo an
ample fortuno, there is greater economy of
dres, and more simplicity in the furnishing
of the dwelling than there is in many of tho
bouses of our citizens, who arc barely able
to supply tho wants of their families by tho
ob'scst attention lo their business. A friend enemies, tho Sioux, on a war-party, filed

A friendly correspondent, writing from
, Washington, Pa., says :
1 Liko most other small towns, we havo
hero a "colored church," where many
' arousing things aro said, highly cxhileratinj

visit our"IIaytt" meeting-house. "Hayti''
is tho name given to that part of our town
where "pussons of color'
winter evening, when tho colored preacher
was in the midst of his sermon, making a
most violont, if not eloquent appeal to his
hearers, one of the legs of the stove, which
had been loosened in somo way, fell o'ut,
and as a natural consequcuco, the red-hot
stovo tipped over at an angle alarming
suggestive of fire. Tlio audience, of course,
commenced crowding out of the door Ilka
a flock of black sheep. But the preacher
was equal to the occasion. Addressing
ono of his prominent members, he cried
"Pick up the stobo Biubbcr Bolah !
piok up do stobe do Lor' won't let him
burn you 1 Only hab faith !"
Pojr brother Bolah had unfortunately
too much faith, and immediately seizod it,
all glowing as it was ; but no sooner had
his fingers touched with the fervent iron,
than he dropped it again, and dancing
around on one foot, blowing his skinless
fingers, he exclaimed with all the energy he
could throw into his voice :
" Do h 1 he won't ! do h 1 he won't 1"
