JJY JOHN NEAL. Aa I was fioing pa'st Mr. J03I1 Rartor'a tavern this otlicr d;iy, I hear a terrible noisa in tlio bar room,and thinks I I'll just put my hsail if, and sco what's tho matter. "Whoorah !" roared a heap of fellows, "here's Johnny llccdle, he'll go and that will make ten ;" and they haul'd me in among them. "What's the occa sion ?'' Bays I. "A sleigh ride, over to Shaw's (every body goes to Shaw's that goes a sleigh riding) with Cddlo and frolie !'' "Whoorah 1" says I. "I motion," said Dr. Patridgo,' "that every gentleman go right off now, and get his sleigh and his lady, and meet at Hank's corner;" and with another whoorah, we burst out of the door and scattered. I ran full ppeed to the widow Heart's. Her daughter Patty is tho handsomest girl in Oasco bay. I had given her some pret ty broad hints, and only waited for a good chance to pop the ijucstion. And out it shall come, this very night, says I. I bounced into tho widow Rean's out of breath, and was near catching Patty in tho suds. Sho waijust done waihincr.and was wringing out, standing in the midst of tub3, mops aud kettles. Sho was struck all of a heap at the r-ight of her spark aud would have blushed nicely, I guess, if sho hadn't been as sho could, already. "A word in your car, Patty," says J, giving her Iho wink, and stepping into tho corner, I told her what was brewing. ''Ill mil and borrow tho dt-acon's sleigh, and como back right away," says I. "O, you needn't bo in such a tearing hurry," says she, "for I've got to shift from top to too. You sco what a pickle I'm in." ''Ah, Patty," says I, "beauty when un- adorncd's adorned the ." "Well, I vow," says Patty, says she, and off I shot, for how was I to follow up such a bold speech j but I could not help sniggering all tho way to tho deacon's to think how swim mingly matters were going on. I was so full of this, that I entirely forgot to mako up 0 story to fop off upon tho old deacon, till I got almo:t to tho door j lor the dea con i3 a sworn enemy to all frolics, and so is his marc. "I'll tell him I want to car ry a grist to mill." Rut that will be found out. "No matter ,o it is after election, aa tho politicians say." "Tho deacon gavo a mortal squint at my face, when I did my errand, but I was behind a shirt collar. He then fell to chewing his cud and considering. "Moth er's clean out," says I, "both ryo and m jun," The deacon spit. "Well, neighbor, if you aro afraid to trust a feller, there s two shilling beforehand." "Poll, poh, John, said ho, walking up and pocketing tho money, ''not trust you ? hear that. Now, Joshua, taeklo up Suky You'll drive tho critter slow, John, and now I think on't, you may bring my grist, that is now at tho mill-and look sharp at tho miller when ho strikes tho toll uicas- uro, John." It was to lato to stick at lies now. So , tho liUulcr Keeping 111.10 twin iue uenu, promised everything, jumped in tho ! prolix, wo kept it up, frolicking and drink Icigh, and steered for tho widow's with j ing hot stuff, till midnight, and while it Ivim. colors. ' lated, tho fun was real renuiuo, I tell yc. I elcigl: flv;n nln,.. -v"'o It is tho height of gcntilility, you must BLOOMSBURG, COLUMBIA COUNTY, PA - know, fa,r a lady to make her beau wait as long as possible, on such an occasion. '. sat over a heap of warm ashes in tho wid' ow Roan's parlor, listening to Patty statu ing about in her stocking feet, in the cham ber overhead, for one good hour. Then I stood up to tho looking glass and frizzled up my hair, changed my breast pin to a new place, thought over somo speeches to mako under tho buffalo skin, and finally laid a plot to lug in the awful question in a sort of slantinciokular fashion. At last Patty appeared in allhcr glory ; I was just crooking my elbow to lead her out, when in come Mrs. Rean. ''Where aro you going to, Patty!'' "Over to Shaw's, sleighing." "What, and leave your cousin Dolly all alone, to suck her finders ! A pretty how d'yo do that, after coming all tho way from Saco just to see you !" Here was a knock down argument. All my plans of courting and comfoit melted down aud ran off in a moment. I saw directly that tho widow was resolved to push big Dolly l'ishcr into my sleigh, whether or no ; and there was no remedy, for tho widow Rean is a stump that is neither to bo got around or moved out of tho way. I said something about the small size of tho sleigh, but it would not do sho shut my mouth instantly. "Let 1110 alone," says sho, "I went a sleighing afore you was born, youngster. If I don't know how to pack .1 sleigh,who does! Patty Rean stow yourself away, here, and thrink yourself up small. If there ain't room, wo must make room, as tho fellows used to say. Now, Dolly, ho'nt yourself in there." Sho tumbled into tho sleigh, like a shot from a shovel, or a cart load of pumpkins into a gondola. It was chuck full of her. "O, she's a whopper, I tell ye." j "Why, Johnny Recdle," says Mrs. Rean, "in my days they use to pack u in, layer on layer." At this hint I sneaked ronnd to Patty, to begin tho second layer on her lap. Rut the widow was wide awake. She clenched mo by tho collar, and patting upon Dolly's knees. "Hero's tho driver's seat," says the. "Plant your feet flat and firm, nice ; jump up Johnny; and now, away with her my lad." Ry this time I got so raving mad that I could hold in 110 longer. I fell afoul of tlio old marc, and it 1 Uidti t give it to her about riglit, then there s none ot 1110, that s , all. Tho deacon counted tho welts 011 her right side a week afterwards, when ho cal led on me for a reckoning, which was made with chalk upon tho upper flap of his eve ry day hat. Sukey not understanding such jokes, took tho bit in her teeth and shot oil", right on cud, liko a streak of now Oonnccticut lightning T .lirmna! how wo skimmed ovor it ! And tho homes and barns, and fences, and tho pig-styes, flew by us liko clouds by tho moon. "Yonder is Hank's comer wlioor.il" and "whoo rah !" answered all the ladies and gentle men with ono voice. Sukey, scared with tho noise, turned tho corner with a flirt, and tho olcigh was bottom up in ' 1 "Whoa there, whoa !" '1 he first thing that I know, I was in tho bottom of a snow bank, jammed down under half a ton of Dolly l'iehcr 1 I tho't I never should see daylight again, and when they hauled mo out, I left a print in tho snow very much liko a cocked up hat knocked into tho middle of next week, as tho sailors say. Ilowsomovcr no bones were broken. We shook our feathers, and crept into our nest again, laughing as loud as tho best of them. Tho sleighs were formed into a string, tho fiddler following, nnd away wo started on tho road to Shaw's bells jingling, fiddlo sounding, and everybody hallooing and screaming for joy. Peter Shaw heard tho racket two miles off, for ho was always on tho look out of a moonshiny night. Ho fell to kicking up a dust in tho bast room, to put it to rights, aud when wo arrived the floor was swept, tho best Japan candlesticks paraded, and littlo Ron was auchorcd closo under tho jam, to tug at tho broken winded bellows, No firo appeared but there worn strange symptoms of it, for therd was no lack of smoke, and part of it, mining the chtui noy, strayed about tho room, which gavo mo a chanco to hit off another compliment on Patty's beauty, as being the cause of Rawing tho smoke. As soon as wo had j taken a swig of hot stuff all around, wc J sat tho fiddler down by tho jamb, took the i oor aml wcnt t0 work "'te1'1 an(1 ,nn'n i , ..i, T ( Rut aj I cast a shocp s eye at took a notion that sho and Siah Oolding wcro rather thick, conslderin'. Thinks I, she wants to mako mo jealous, to spur mo on ; so seeing them in close confab, I poked my head between them and tried hot! Rut tho cat was soon out of tho bag. Wo paid tho reckoning, four and tixpenco a piece. Think of that. Everybody grumbled, but Peter Shaw didn't care. Then followed tho crowding of sleighs, taking in tho ladies at tho door. Such a hubbub and confusion I Rut when my turn como, lo and behold 1 Patty Rean was missing, and so was Siah Golding 1 Here is tho end of my story ; and whoever wants to know tho particulars that happened on tho road home, must ask Dolly Fisher. Tho deacon will tell you what 11 pickle Sukey came home in, and "how much I paid for tho whistle.'' Finally, whoever went to our meeting houso tho next Sunday morning, knows very well how Patty Rean and Josiah Golding aro to square accounts. RsAurirur, and Useful Tuouonr. A littlo daughter, ten years old, lay on her death bed. It is hard to part with tho pet of tho family; tho golden hair, th loving bluo oyes, tho bird like voice, thn truthful, affectionate child ? Rctwccn this child and her father there had always ex isted, not a relationship merely, but tho love of congenial natures. IIo fell on his knees by his darling's bedsido and wept bitter tears. He strove to say but could not, "Thy will bo done 1" It was a conflict between grace and nature, such as he never beforo experienced. His sobs disturbed tho child, who had been lying apparnntly unconscious. Sho opened her oyes and looked very much distressed. "Papa, dear papa," sho said at length. ''What, my darling ?" answered her fa ther, itriving for couipoiuro. "Papa," sho asked, in faint, broken tones, ''how much do I co:t you CTory year ?'' "Hush, dear, do be quiet," ho roplicd, in great agitation, for ho feared delirium was coming on. "Rut please papa how much d I cost you V To soothe her, ho replied, though with a shaking voice, "Well, dearest, perhaps two hundred dollars. What then darling! ''Rocauc, papa, I thought may be you would lay it out this year in Ribles for p00r children to remember mo by." beam of heavenly joy glanced in tho father's heart ; the joy of ono noble, lov ing spirit mingled with its liko. Self was forgotton tho sorrow of parting ,tho lono ly future. Naught remained but the mis sion of love, aud a thrill of gratitude that in it ho and his beloved wcro co workers. "I will) "iy iss.- -u;u," liu replied kissing her brow with solemn tenderness. ''Yes,'' ko added, after a pauso, ''I will do it every year, as long as I live, and thus my Lilian shall yet speak, and draw hundreds and thousands after her to heav en. Livi.no in' Japan. A correspondent, writing from tho dominions of tho Tycoon, gives tho following interesting informa tion : "You ask us in regard to our mode of living. It is simply this: You rent a , houso (.1 moderate-sized houto eoets about S100 per annum) with soino four or iho rooms; ono of these, tho frout, is the office or counting-room ; tho next to tho rear is tho drawing and dining-room, aud answers at the same timo for a privato counting-room. To tho roar of this is the kitchen. In tho upper story ono room is occupied by yourself, ono by the house keeper, and tho other by tho servants, usually young men, say eighteen to twen ty, who aro young erraud boys, &o Your housekeeper, who, by tho way, is generally a pretty black-eyed young lady, is very attentivo to your wants.

A Western editor complaining that ho could not sleep 0110 night, summed up tho causes ;--" A wailiug babo of sixteen months old, a dog howling under tho win dow, a cat squalling in tho alloy, a color ed sercnado in a shauty over tho way, a toothache, and a pig tryiug to get in at tho back door " , SATURDAY, JANUARY 12, 1861.

This scourge of tho family continues to ravage many sections of our Commonwealth and counts its victims by hundreds. Wc subjoin an extract of a letter from a gen tlemen in Maryland, rolativo to tho curo of this alarming disease Tho remedy re commended was successful in his own fam ily, and may bring relief lo others. Tho simplest remedies aro often tho most eff ective : Putrid Sore Throat or Dipltsrid and its Cures, Tho distinguishing mark of this malady from other diseases of tho throat is the for mation of a membrane, which increases gradually until tho patient is strangled to death. To provent tho formation of this membrano is to arrest and curo the disease. In tho early stages of the complaiut,whieh is accompanied by a soreness aud swelling of the throat, let tho patient use a simple olut ion of salt and water, as hot ns tho patient can bear, as a gargle, every fifteen minutes, nt tho same time moisten a piece of flannel with a solution of tho samo kind mado as warm as tho patient can bear it (as beforo), and bind it around tho throat, renewing it as often as tho garglo is admin istered, and in the mean time sprinkle fine salt between tho flannel and tho nook; use inwardly somo tonic or stimulant, either separately, or, if prostration bo groat use both together. The treatment as may bo seen, is extremely simple, and if used in tho earlier stages of tho disease, will effect a complete cure. I know this to bo a cer tain curo, as my Mother and Sitter-in-law both had it and cured themselves with this simple romedj'. Ry inserting this in your paper you will oblige, W. A. COOK.

A writer in tho Ruffalo Comma rial, ft Lincoln papor, makes tho following con fession in regard to tho responsibility of tho North for tho present crisis : "Let tho North, especially New England remember that for this fearful result thoy ara primarily and mainly responsible, by their treasonable legislation, by birioom and pulpit assaults upon the South, in which unholy alliauco of things sacred and profane, all epithets have been exhausted, all sound principles abandoned, nnd new terms of denunciation and hatred invented irritating at last to madness tho excitable population of the South, who, for a quarter of a century, have had theso eoals of firo heaped upon their heads. "Let tho North and West ratncmber.al so, that tho necessary Bubjugation of tho seceding Statc3 will be a victory without honor and cause of profit ; that half a cen tury of propority will hardly rcstoro tho national loss, or heal the resulting enmities that commercial distress and almost uni versal bankruptcy will clotho our cities in mourning, and rcduco all real estate, both in city and country,to half its present val ue. Iict them rcstoro the integrity ot tho Constitution, repeal all treasonable laws, and offer tho olivobrtnch to their exasper ated brethren of tho South. If war must como, let them go into this dreadful con troversy with clean hands ; let themselves of nullification before they proceed to pun ish it in others." Danoi.vo Giras at Auction.
