MARRIAGE FEES IN COON SKINS
• nTiss Richmond Compiler has a correspondent, who
it *swelling 'mit west,' who is •takinp„ notes,' of all he
sect and hears. He relates the following anecdote,
sileireis told to him, at a wedding party:—
- griPsso conversation turned ou the 'hard times,' and
the groom. I remarked that times were so
kiM in Virginia, that young people though, ever so
Ileeing and matrimonially disposed, could nut get mar
ried. But our landlord remarked, that the years 18:21
and 1822 in Indiana and Kentucky, were still harder,
if posailde; for he had then to perform the marriage
ceremony, and take his fees in "coon skins!"—that
ritelve akin, was his regular price, and as he was a
hatter by trade, and it soon became known that lie
would - marry for coon skins, he did a large business
both et batting and marrying. 'Many a runaway cou
ple,'-paid the ex-Squire, 'from Kentucky, have I mar
ried for coon skins. They frequently brought them,'
xentinued he, 'on horseback, rolled up, ana tied be,
hied them, like a great coat.' We were all in a roar of
!aright& and thought him joking; but he affirmed it
L abe literally true, that he had married at least 50
c ouple for coon skins, and that he had more marriage
c arentamies is perform than any other justice, from this
e rreamstaticer rather, to use his own words, 'I got
U the +naming, because I would take coon skins.'"
GOSSIP ABOUT A PRINCESS.
French correspondent of the London Court
al, depicts the Princess de Joinrille in some
i different colors from the portraiture given by the
English aithoritios, and relates some morsels of gossip
about the alfianciug of the bride, which we arc in
cline& to believe raum fanciful than real. The follow-
Logi' a part of the sketch to which we have reference:
She is a fettle, wild, uneducated creature, graceful
to the utmost degree- haloyant with health and spirits,
and but little inured to such etiquette as that which
reigns at the Ttfillcries. lem told that shortly after
her arrival she was invited to join the party at a cer
tain round table, where the Queen and her ladies (a cc
qit'on dit) sit night after night stitching much, but ut
tering little. She hare it patiently fur some time, only
expressing her weariness by sundry and oft-repented
yawning:; but at length quite unable to stand it any
Amager, she jumped up from her chair, clapping her
hands, and skipping round the room, ended her evo
:lndiana by searing herself on the Haar and sirlo s in , * Bra
=Man songs. McQueen was horrified at sucliti. breach'
, ordetorinn, and the King laughed heartily at the child
ish freak of the little Prineess. She is a mast lovely
young creature, and a true, unsophisticated child of
nature. Everything hero is new and straage to her,
and whenever she is tt mot thy sir :el.: by what she he
she exclaim: aloud, Air, if my brother and sit

'the recollection of her early home. and distant friends. I

The rtrirri.,ge of th it Royal FDA:losses to.,k place
i rather an winsual manner. Etiquette requires that
an timbals:ld ir should go and rn ilse the proposal, set
the preliminaries of the affair, and finally, marry
ithe,r.ri:lcrs3 by proxy. Th- Prince de Joinyillc kicked
dreadfully against sach a mode of proceeding, and not
only did ka wbjeesen marrying a woman lie had never
-seen, but he refused point blank to allow- any other
man to marry his wife for him—and there the matter
•stood, until the King compromised matters by allow
ingthe Prince, d Joioville to act as ambassador. a
.order: were very positive; he was to ask for the Prin
case' hula, if she suited his taste, and if accepted, was
to have put her and her ladies on board one frigate,
and escort her himself in his own vessel, the Belle
Pilule, back to France, where the marriage was to be
celebrated in due form. No sooner had ho seen bor.
than she pleased him so well, that he became deeply
smitten with her charms, and resolved even despite
the' King's orders to marry her forthwith, and most
- erinjugallytake her on board his own vessel. Once
out to senile reflected on the lecture that awaited hint
at home; and by way of avoiding its first outbreak, in
stead of returning immediately to France, hi. indulged
himself by a lengthened cruise, and turned a deaf ear,
or rather a blind eye, to the telegraphic signals to has
! tan his return, till at length the King was obliged to
send out a corvette to call him hack again. The si. - ht
or his charming daughter-in-law, and the penitence of
the young sailor. soon appeased his, Majesty's anger,
and now—all's well that ends well.
WHY IS THERE NO FROST IN A CLOUDY
The reatdric is feerpte;.tiy made that "there will be
eiTro-tt for itis too cloudy."
A earrodpoildunt thus. explains this pheri.imena so fa
m6linr to but the. why t i whervfuro of which, few
havelaken the trouble to st,c,rtai.it—
All bodies emit hear in proportion as they contain it.
Teri) bodie; of equal temperature placed beside earl;
other will mutually give-and receive equal quantities of
heat, thereroreone will not gain of the other. But a
piece of ice placed in a warm room will receive much
More heat from the surrounding objects than it imparts;
it will therefore gain in temperature and melt. The
earth du ing the d ty receives much more heat from the
sun than it impnes to the surrounding space in the
same time. But during a clear night the surface of tit::
earth is constantly parting with its beat, and receiving
Bone; the consequence is, that it becomes so cold that
the humidity contained in the surrounding air becomes
condensed and attaches itself to objects in the form of
dew, in the same manner that a tumbler or a pitcher
containing cold water "sweats," as it is called, in a hot
da.Y; the surface is cooled by the water, and this sta
tute condenses the humidity of the contiguous air. If
the surface oldie earth, after the formation of dew, lo
!es heat enough to bring it to the freezing point, the
dew becomes frozen, and we have frost. But if it he
cloudy, then the heat, radiating from the earth, will be
received by the clouds, and by them the greater portion
ta it will be returned to the earth; thus the surface of
the earth very nearly retains its temperature, which not
only prevents a frost, but almost always prevents even
die formation of dew.—Buffalo Commercial.
