Owln j to Having a Pig in the Family.
Sorry's the day I iver left odd Ireland,'
exclaimed Dennis O'Graal, to his new was
ter, Peter Cornelias.
"Why, Dennis! what reason can you possi
bly have for disliking this glorious Republic,
where every individuaHs on an equal footing?'
Aqual futtin, is it I Ohi blather tarrin
your prisence I'd argufy the matther. Divil
a sthroke of luck kern akrass me since I put
my fut on Amerikin sile. Omadhaun ! what a
country it is for misforthin ! Av ye'll plase
listen, I'll tell ye all about a inisforthunit evint
that ruinated meself and the ould woman,
that's been waked this day twelvemonth." .
Peter Cornelius signified bis willingness to
hear Dennis's story, which he immediately
commenced, seemingly delighted at having
an auditor.
Well, thin, forninst all, ye must know Mtein
out to this counthry in a laky ould ship, that
for eight mortial weeks did nothin butpitchin,
an tossin,' an crackin, an twistin itself;
which same disordhered my bowels dhridfully.
I was a long time sthriven to ate pitaties, but
the divil a pitaty would stay in my stomach.
And the puld woman tuk the fever. So you
see, I was compelled to do double juty, and
feed the two childher broth wid a spoon.
And that's the way it was I kern to Ameriky.
Me fusht misfortin comminced in XI York.
I was sittin wid Mary an' the two childher, on
my property, wondherin if there was iver a way
at all to Injeanny, where I was towld, I'd get a
purty farm for the axin, when a big counthi y
man axed me 'Are ye from County Kerry !'
"How d'ye know that at all ?' ez I,
Falx,' sez be, I kem from the same place
Are ye long in America V sez I.
Two years. Your name is Dennis O'Grall,'
sez he ; (the tafe spied it on the chist.)
Who the divil,' sez I, 'towld you that '
Oh, botheration!' sez he, 'wasn't I a frind
av yer father, before ye, and be the same to
ken I'd be happy to sarve the son.'
Ye was V sez I, 'the divil a betlher irind
ye niver had, thin. What's yer name V
Terrcnce Doyle,' sez he, and an honesther
name than that same, niver twirled a shillaleh.'
Well, thin,' sez I, 'Misther Doyle, I'll not
waste me breath dispotin' that samo wid you.
Ye'd plase me mightily by insthrnctin me in
the chapest road to Injeanny.'
Bedad,' sez he, I'm the boy can do that.
In the first place tell rae how much money
ye've got wid yees 7'
Forty pounds,' sez I.
'Thin,' eezTerrence, 'give me twinty pound,
and I'll fetch the tickets that'll take yees all
the way to Injeanny by stame !'
So I tuk twinty pound in goold, an gev it to
Tenence, an ho gave me back a weeny bit of
psptr, wid a stameboat on it, an that tuk me to
Albany, an the divil a fat further could I go
wid it. I tho't to meself Terrence was a great
rascal.but that didn't mend the matlher at all.'
Wid good luck and bad luck, I got out to
Injeanny, and tuk a cabin in a little town wid a
quare name, that I disremember now. So I
bought a pig to slape wid the childher; 'thwas
as purty a pig as ye'd see from this to Cork,
but the divil was in it, for it was the ruination
av me family. The first night it slept wid the
childher it ate little Pat's aire clane ofT ; and
thin, afthcr it got accostaoined to the family,
it tuk sick an died. The poor childher made
sicft a hullabaloo about it, that I tuk it off in the
night an berried it in a box. I was very sorry to
be a tossin the sod on poor pig, for the childher
had named it afther little Tommy that was
dead; and the thinkin, that made me wapeliko
a gestoon. The next mornin, who should con
front me vishion, but a bluddy ould thafe of a
polace officer, axin me very porlitely that I
was his pris'nur. Oh, go long wid yer foolin!'
sez I, 'and don't be botherin a dacent citizen.'
With that the divil whispered, You was dis
covered, last night convayin a mighty suspish
us box into the woods and berrien it; so come
along aUy.' In about tin minnts I was board
in and lodgin atthe expinse of tho corpora-
hnn, and divil a hair I knew what 'twas all
about; but that doesn't matther.
Purty soon, in kem anuther thafeketchor,
an axed would I givo me teshtimony on the
rowner's inquest? An widout waitin for yes
or no, he whispered me out in the coortyard.
AbJ b9 me sowl, there was a purty Bight?
Ma ould woman consomin wid grafe, the big
tears rollla out aT her blue eyes, an the two
childher disthressia thimselves wid the wake
they war makio over pig Tommy; 'for some
ould canebual bad unberried the pig, an ivery-

;; 'Well, thin, you must know, last night me
wife bein flick.. I wint for the docthor, an was
paHsin by Dinnis O'Graal'a shanty, 1 whin I
spied the felly carryin a box an a lanthern.
As it was a snsplshus time o'nighl, I follied
him to the woods, an there I seed him dig a
hole an deposit the mistayreous box. All the
time he war a whisperin if I'd only kilt Tom

for me pocket; an thin I thought to meself,
here's bin a bluddy murther. So this mornin
I axed little Pat that's cryin there, what it
was his father tuk off last night in d box. Oh,
that, sez he, was my brother Tommy; wid that
he ran into the house. So, yc srj, I thought
it war me juty to make a clean brasht of the

gistrate thought it would b betther to se

'Wid that they pulled little P.tt off, Rn open

So it is!' sayes Puffer.
An thin iverybody laughed as if a fairy war
ticklin em; and ould Puffer ahnaked off, the
divil knows where; an the Crowner sez
'Dinnis, go about your business.'
So I tnk rae ould woman off the could, damp
ground, where she was sittin and that same
gev her the laver-a-nagur and we wint home
'The next mornin she was shnkin wid the
faver, which lashted for two weeks, an that
tuk her to death. . .
So, ye prccave, that unforthenit evint ru

honest pinny for em, so I am.
Poor Dennis having concluded the recital
of his misfortunes, wiped his eyes, which had
filled with tears, and then proceeded to the
performance of li is duties.
Tue Yankee is Hell. Burton tells a capi
tal story of "The Yankee in the Infernal Re
gions." His description of some of the char
acters he found "down below," is laughable
in the extreme. Nebuchadnezzar, the King
of the Jews, he describes as good at -all lours,"
and particularly expert in the preperation of
"salad." The introduction of the Yankee to
his infernal majesty is peculiar.
"How d'ye do folks, said the 6tranger, puf
fing away at a long segar is the boss devil at
His majesty looked sulphur and saltpetre
at the intruder.
Keptile!' he exclaimed in a voice of thun
der, that rumbled and reverberated in the
depths of a pit without a bottom who are you
that dare intrude upon our sacred privacy?"
Whew' said the stranger, 'don't tear your
shirt! why what on earth is the use of going
off half cocked in that way ! Why do you jump
afore you're spirred, their an't such an al
mighty occasion for you to get your dander so
awful riz, jist as if you was going to burst
your biler, Seein' that your climate's rather
of the warmest, it would only be doin' the
civil thing if you jist said, 'Mister toe the
mark, and take your bitters."
"Worm hence to your appointed place in
theyawninggulf! there in the hottest flame ."
Well, I guess not!' drawled out the man,
with inipurturable calmness. "I'v got my
ticKet, Mister, from the agent, and I don't
choose a berth so nigh the injine!"
GCF"An Irishman going to market met a far
mer with an owl.
"Say, misther, wha'll you take fcr your big

"It is an owl, ye baist," replied the aston
ished farmer.
"Devil a bit do I care whether it's ould or
young, price the bird, ye spalpeen."
A Cacsk foe Gkief. First Juvenile. 'Say
Billy, where did you get that cigar?"
Second Juvenile. 'Why, you see, dad came

out of his hat."
First Juvenile. (Admiringly.) 'Oh, ain't
you one of 'cm! I wish my dad would come
home so too; but, (sorrowfully) then "he don't
smoke, and I have to pick up old sogers."
0Cr'Twins, by the pojvers !" cried the hor
ror struck Irishman, as the nurse approached,
bearing a new pledge of affection from his
faithful helpmate.
Twins, h'iny,' cried the nurse; 'faith, Mur

- A Frontier War. -: . , -'
We learn that an expedition is to be organi
zed during the ensuing winter, to wago a war
of extermination against the Sioux Indians
and other hostile tribes who have been engag
ed in the late outrages on the plains. This
force is to bo assembled at Jefferson Barracks
early in the spring, so that the operations may
commence as soon as the weather will permit:;
The force will consist of the Second regiment
Of infantry, three companies of the Second
dragoons, and one section of light bat terry,
now stationed at'Baton Rogue the whole un
der command of Col. Sumner. This force
will also be joined by all the men who can be
spared from the garrisons of the forts which
are scattered througb the region, and there .is
a probability that at least two complies of
mounted volunteers, composed of . frontier
men, will be added to the command. After
they Jiavo accomplished their duties in that
region, 'they will turn their attention to the
Caraanchcs, and will act in co-operation with
the forces now Stationed upon the frontiers of
Texas. :' ; :i ' '
R atueii Extensive. Mati imuny agrees very
well with some people-., Thurlow Weed, , the
editor of the Albany Evening Journal, in the
midst of all the dirty turmoil of politics has
; found leisure to enter largely into tho cultiva
tion of babies. He is now the father of eigh-;
teen chii Iren his valuable helpmate having
presented him with one every eleven months
since their marriage. We should say that that
Weed was rather a luxriant kind of vegilution,

C"A Tennessee paper talks of a chap at
Holly Springs, who was so astonished at see
ing a lady bringing music from her piano, that,
after listning for a minute or two, he withdrew
his head and hallooed after his companion, "I
say, Jim! just come back here; darnation seize
me, if here aint a woman pulling music out of
a chest!"
DOue of our smart city urchins hearing
his fathea read an article in the paper in rela
tion to a new invention of bricks of glass, ex
claimed 'Glass bricks? I know what them is.'
'What are they?' inquired one of the. family.
'Tumblers of licker' shouted the juvenile.
Zyit is an excelleat rule to be observed in
ail disputes, that men should give soft words
and hard arguments; that they should not strive
so much to vex as to convince each other.

Tho Editor does not feel, that with his own rea

may safely confide in their friendship for the
Magazine, and in its past management for iu pre

of an extended circulation in a country where
readers are multiplying so rapidly.
Of the January number the first edition will b

will be so prompt in renewing old clubs, and ex
tending the list among new vnet, that the first
