he was listening to the melancholy voice

DAN MARBLE IN A POSITION
Actors are very tenacious about their
'"position" in their profession; and some
of them are even particular about their po
sition in private ; ' ht the most anxious
man about the latter, that we ever knew of,
was the famous Dan Marble, upon °neve
casion. IVe believe it was at a supper—
or some sort of a conviviality—gross af
fairs which we never attend, our "Senior"
usually taking on himself such responsi
bilities—when one of the company, a
grave faced man, declared that he could
not only see as far into a millstone as oth
er people, but much farther through a atone
wall ; in short let any man go into a
passage, shut the door, place himself in
any possible position, and he would tell
what position it was ! This stirred Dan
to an expression of incredibility, but the
proposer stuck to hia point, backing his
assertion with an offer to "bet the wine,"
the company to decide, which was finally
accepted, and out went Dan to put himself

mounted the table, and at the risk of his

"Will that do ?" said Dan to his friend.
"Oh, just the thing, exactly !"
"Sure they ain't peeping, eh ?"

ADVICE OF COUNSEL.—There is a well
known custom prevailing in our criminal
courts, of assigning consel to such prison

one occasion, the Court finding a man ac

to the lawyer who was present—

prisoner, confer with hint, and then give
hint such counsel as may be best fur his

that a certain Democrat went to Washing.

designated an Indifferent office which he
could give the applicant then, but told him
that if he would wait till after the fourth
of March, Gen. Cass, who would then un

something ,better. The poor fellow, as
his ill luck would have it, chose to wait
until after the fourth of March.

Tax remarkable history we '

and near a certain locality in New Hemp ,
shire. The exciting event will•be recog
nized and remembered. About two miles
from a small town in the State we have
mentioned, the road crosses a considerable
eminence, beyond which a valley of 'a
mile broad, called by the 'people in - “inter r
vale," lay extended ! This piece of laud
from, over tillage, was worn out, and be
longed to a man who kept a•tavern by the
road side. Near the top of the hill, on
the side nearest the valley, was a depp
pond!—a orange place,, it is trueo.for such
a thing td exist. but- the nature. of:_the
ground made a permanent lodgment of the
water in the hill perreetly natural. Neat

in which there lived a woman, looked up !
on in the neighborhood with great • dis
trust and suspicion. She had a little girl
with her, a child of five Yitire of age.
whom she called her daughter, and who
was her only companion in the hut in
which she lived. ,
A fanner, who resided upon the out
skirts of the town, upon opening th'e door
'one morning, discovered this poor little
girl, bare-footed and ragged, crouched. be-
neath the cave of the house; and seething=
ly very terrified. When he queStiohcd
her, she said she had come to tsillbimstite
thing dreadful, but she feared her mother
would kill her for doing so.
"•Oh, good sir ; I think it is right that
should tell you, for it is something very
bad—but my mother would kill me if you
The fa raltr quieted the child's fears, and
then heard front her tbe horrid relation
that her mother had last night murdered
and robbed a traveller, who stopped at her
house. It had stormed dreadfully during
the night, and a strange man, she said, had
come to the lonely hut looking for shelter.
He had gone to sleep ,stretched ,upon the ,
Boor, before the fire, and hearing a groan
in the night, she woke up' and saw het
mother killing the stranger with a knife.
She lay still, in great terror, aud•eaw her
mother take money from the man's pock
ets and hide it, sad then drag the body in
a narrow apace behind the chimney and
cover it with brush-wood, used for , fuel,
after which the miserable murderess crept
into bed by the child's aide. The ppor
girl could not sleep, and at the first peep
of morning she saw her mother rise again,
drag the body from the chimney to the
pond, at the back of the house, tie stones
to it, and with ,a long pole, forms it down
into the thick .mud at the bottom. Terri
fied, pale, almost speechless - with fear, the
little girl fied from her mother's habitatiOm
and ran a mile and a half to a farmei's
'house, to relate the horrible details.
Of course, the alarm was instantly
given, and the terrible ',excitement flew
through the town, and among the neighbors
for miles around. An early hoer:ills the
