Gossw Wrrn Oua Fairsus.—lt is an old
saying that what one does on the first, day of the
year is an index tAia course for the following
tlitee hundred andsixty•four days. Dear help
your gossip if it holds good is his ease. Last Ss
' tnrday night I treated myself to a ticket at the
Winter Garden, to hear BOOTH in HAMLET. I
hare seen many Hamlets, but Alr-1 Booth's ren
dering of the part is by far the most agreeable.
As a reader be is certainly head and shoulders
- above his nick. Well, never mind about'that, it
don't pay to praise actors when you are not on
the free list. It' was -rather 'late, and very cold
when the Theatre closed, and I had some trouble
in getting a car (lilt Avenue). , Got scar at last,
and just as the clock struck 12; ushering in 1865,
a drunken Irishman succeeded in picking a - fight
out of a one legged soldier. The Irishman had a
• friend.:;-who vier saw an Irishman that hadn't 7
—so had the soldier. This was in the car, mind.
I said'to a ladpwlio tat near me, don't you think
you bad better get out of this 7 She rather
thought she had. So I helped her out. Just as
I remounted the platform, the passengers in the
car, some eight in all, seemed to be - drawn teeth
er most inexplicably, just as the planets wolld
rush for the sun if centifrugal force should cease.
I looked in, but could. see nothing but sixteen
Pegs and as many arms tossing convulsively,
throwing about the straw that covered the floor
like a thrashing machine. I rubbed my eyes, and
wondered if I had been drinking, then I' thought
of Tam O'Bhanter, and last of all I did 'What I
should have done at first—stopped the car. I
pitched into the Conductor, and wanted to know
- what he meant by allowing such conduct on his
car. He , looked at me with a moat ludicrous
compound of anger, and injuied innocence, saying,
" It's bard enough to be bullied by rowdies, but
when a gentleman joins in —." "Why
don't you coil a policeman 7" I said. " Well,-
ain't I looking for one," he retorted, with the same
reproachful look. Now, I having had occasion
4 once before for a policeman, 'knew hoW to do it.
I put my bands up to my mouth, Indian war-whoop
style, and yelled "Po-lice !
Number something or other camel vshing up.
" Wks/It's the r4bw.l" he cried in indisputable
Merriam My hdart Batik, for I felt that being a
man and a brother-Irishman, very likely we'd all
be arrested on complaint of .the Irishman who
bad raised the row. I informed him politely that
a drunken fellow had repeatedly struck a maimed
soltr until he could bear it no longer, from which..
arose the fight that was now going on inside. Alt
this time the thirt — y-two legs and arms were kicks
ing, and eight mouths caning. In went the ikiL.
]iceman, crack, crack went his club, and in a
moment oat he come with, by accident, ISuppose;
the offensive Irishman, hatless, hair like a door
mat, coat in tatters, and swearing that he was,
more than a match for anything this side of Don-
nybrook. There stood the policeman represent!
ing justice, scales and all, with his hand imbedded),
in the coat collar of the culprit who certainly was
competent to represent an entire State prison.
"'Who makes a charge agin this mahn!" cries the
officer. I was on the point of answering " I,"
when it came into my mind that if I did I'd have
to go along to the police court, and that possibly
/might, between the officer and, culprit, have the
table turned upen me, or at all events that I would
not be likely to reach my bed before day.
.11,ght, so I answered, " We all know that he has
Acted indecently in the car, and that he struck
this one-legged soldier. Here he is, let him speak
for himself.' - He'll make the charge." "—s if
"I do," maid the soldier. I'll prove that I'm a col.
flier, andonn old one too, by making no charge.

abate observations for the benefit of my dear bro
ther and sister gossips, and am enabled to make
the following report, from iettud eyesight:—Two
thousand weak-kneed young -and old, shabby and
genteel men; six hundreirworn-out horses; three
*4-downs ; two fights, and enough swearing to
raise a storm at sea. I saw a carriage come in
contact with a street car, much to the damage
of the former, if losing its four wheels, horses and
driver, may be called damage. It was done quick
as a wink. There sat the two unhappy youths,
. with their tails half made, ill a carriage bor. with.

ANOTHER MSER.TED VIL tun would
seem front the graphic report of the brilliant la
cabs' er of the Fulton Republican, that sweet Au
bum so famed in Goldsmith's song, has a rival in
the ancient villave of McConellsburg. In an ar
ticle beaded "How it Finds IN," the Republican
thus discourses on the sad footsteps of decay
which have made their indelible marks on the vil
lage. It says:—When we say "us," ... 4 7sre. mean
:"we, the people of McConnellsburg," that sweet
est village of the vale, nestling as fondly, mid its
surrounding mountains as ever child nestled on
the bosom of loved and loving parent. When we
say "it," we mean the Year of Grace, 1865, that
great untried reality on which we have but now
entered. But to our text: 1865 finds the citizens
of ItleConnelLsburg without a resident Minister of
the Gospel among then'. Here no Pastor II - his
daily walk and living illustration of the truths he
lain would teach, sheds the light of his Christian
illumined countenance over the weary every-day

dividend is confidently expected in February; Its
revenues are now greater than when the company

in possession of revenues from three wells, and it
is probable that it will declare a dividend in Feb
