A1V IRISH STORY.
An extract from Mr. leer't laughable Irish
St'jrieg, called radily and the Fox,
They my, at latt afther many year uf ptospei.
ity, Ihnt the oulJ colonel got stricken In years, an J
he begun to have roisgivin's in his conscience (or
his wicked doin's, and hit heart was heavy a the
few of death kem upon htm and, sure enough.
while he had such murnful thought, ihu DiviJ kem
to him, and towld him, he should go with him.
" Wei', to be sure, the ould man was fickencn'-d,
lilt he plucked up his courage and his cuenrs
and towld the Divil, in a bnnthcriu' way, j iking
like, that he had parlic'Iar busiueas thin, that he
was going to a party, and hoped an ould friend
would'nt inconvaynience him that ivway."
" Well," said I, laughing at the put off of going
to a party, " the Divil, of course, would take no
excuse, and caniod him off In a fl h of fire I"
' Oh no, sir," answered the old man, in some
thing of a reproving, or, at least, l (Tended tone,
" that's the finish, I know very well, of many a
story, such as we're talkin' ol, but that's not the
way of this, tvhich is truth etery wrd what I tell
"I keg your pnidon fir tho interruption,'"'
"No oflince in lie, sir," said the venerable
chronicler, who was now deep in his study and
woulJ nut be stopped.
" Well, sir," continued he, t'.ie Divil said he'd
cull tho next day, and that he must be road, and
sure enough, in the eveniu' he kem to him, and
when the colonel seen him he rcmiuded him of his
bargain, that as long as he could give him some
work he could'nt do, he waa'iit obi. aged to go.
That's lluue,' says the Divil,
" 'I'm glad to see you'ie as good as your word,
any how,' says tho colonel.
" I never bruk lay word yet, says the owld
chap, cocking up his horns consai'.edly, honn
bright,' says he. '
" Well, then, says the coloi el, 1 build me a mill
down there by the river,' says be, and let me have
it finished by to-morrow morniu'.'
" Your will is my pleasure,' fsys tho ould
chap, and awny he wir.t, and the Colonel ihu't he
bad nick'd Ould Niok at laf and went to bed
quite oi(-y in his mind.
" But, jewel maehree, sure the ftrt thing he
heerd. tho next raoinin was thai the whole couri'
thry round was runniu to see a fine bran uiw m il
that was an the liver side where, tho evening Ic
fore, not a thing at all, at all, I ut ruahos was
standin,' and all, of coorse, wonderiu' what broug
it there, and same sayin 'twas not lucky, and
many more throubled in mind, but one and all
agreein' it was not eoodt and that s the very tu II
forninst you, that you were lukiu' afT, and tho stone
that I noticed is a remarkable one a big coig
atone that they say the Divil hinisalf laid fii.
and has the mark of four fingers and a thumb an
to this day.
" But when the colonel heerd it, he was more
throubled than any, of coorse, and began to on-
thriio what else he could think W, to keep himself
out of tho claws of the ould one. Wed, he often
heerd tell that there was one thing the Divil never
could do. and I dare eav vou heerd it too, sirs that
is, that he could'nt mako a rope out of the sand
of the sac ; and so, when tho wild one kem to him
the next day, and said his job was done, and t!at
now the mill was built, hi mutt either tell him
somi thin' else he wanted built, or come uway wii
So the Colonel said it was all over wid
him ; ' but,' says he, I would'nt like to go wi
vou alive ; arid sure it's all the same to you, alive
or dead V
Oh, thnt won't do,' says his fiiond ; I can'
wait no more,' says be.
I don't want you to wait, my dear friend,'
says the colonel; 'all I want is, that you'll be
pleased to kill me before you take mo away.
' With pleasure,' says Ould Nick.
But will you promise me my choice of ilyiu'
one particular way V say the Colonel.
" ' Half a doecn way, if it phae you,' says
" You're mighty obler gin',' says the Colonel ;
and so,' says he, ' I'd rather d e by to in' hanged
with a rope made out of the sands of the sae,' says
he, lookin' mighty knowiu' at the Ould Fellow.
" ' I'vo always one about me,' aiys the Divil,
to obleege my frinds,' says he; and, wi h that ho
pulls out a rope of sand, sure enough.
" Oh, it's game you're mikin',' says the Cole
nol, growin, as white as a sheet.
" The game it mine, sure enough,' says the
ould fellow, grinnin', with a lerrib'e laugh.
" That's not a sand rope at all,' says the
" Isu't it 1' iy the Divil, hitting him arrois the
face with the ind of the rope, and tho sand (fur it
was made of sand sure enough) wim into one i f
his eyes, and made the tears come wiih the pain.
u ' That bates all I ever seen or hef id,' gays the
Colonel, sthrivin' to rally snd make another offer ;
is there any tiling you can't do V
" Nothin' you can tell me,' aays the Divil, so
you may as well lave off puluvcrin', and come
along at wsnst.
" Will you give me one more off r," says the
" You d n't deaarve it,' says the Divil ; ' l u'
I dont care il I do;' for you sen, tir, he was
only play in' wid bint, and tantalum' the oulJ
All fair,' says the colonel, and with that he
sx'd him could he stop a woman's tongue 1"
u Thry ne,' says Ould Niels.
' Well, then,' snys tbe colonel, make my lady's
tongue be quiet for the next month, and I'll thank
She'll never throuble you again,' says Ould
Nick) and wiih that, the Colonel heeid rosriu' ami
cry in", and the door of his room was thrown open,
and in ran bis daughter, ai.d fell down at his
feet, telling bin) her mother had just dropped
The minil the door opened the Divil runs and
ides himself behind a big elbow chair, and the
Colonel was freuked almost out of his siven einscs,
by raison of the sudd, n death of hi poor Inly, let
alone the jeopard he was in himself, sceiu' h w
the Divil had forest alf d him every way l and after I
rnigin bis hell and Collin in hi servants, and rc
. , i , i . ... ..1
lo,Br"1 i'nier out or tier mini, ne wa goin'
awjiy wi n nor oul oi tne room, when the Uivil
caught howld of him by the skirt of the coat, and
the colonel was oMtvged to 1 t his danghtei be
carried out by the servants, aid shut the door af.er
" Well,' sav a the Divil, and lie grinned and
wagged his tail all as oue as a dog when he is
nl.ised what do you sav now 1' rays he.

with you then, you villain,' says he.
" Don't call names,' says the Divil you hnd
better keep a civil tongue in your head, says he ;
' and it doesn't become a gimlcmcn to forgit good
" V ell, sir, to m.ike a long slory short, the Divil
purtended to let him off. out of kfnJne-s, for three
days, until his wife was buried ; but the raison of il
was t'tis, that when the lady, hi daughter, fainted,
he loosened the clo ties about her throat, snd, in
puling some i f her dhresa awny, he tuk off a goold
chain that was an her neck, and put it in h's poc
ket, and the ch.iin had a diamond crass at it, (the
Loid be praised !) and the Divil daren't touch him
while he had the sign of the crius about him
" Well, the poor colonel, God forgive him, was
grieved for tho loss of his lady, and she bad an id-
gant tVmn, ojtd they say to a when tlae praye s
was reading over the dead, tbe ould colonel took it I
to heo.t liU in. thins-, and the word o' Qok kem
L ." . J . r. , .. .
nome ro ni poor siniui sowi ai i
" ell, sir, to make a long story mori, me n.u
iv it was, that for threo days o' grace that was I
given to htm, the p.ior deluded ould sinner did
nothin' at all but read the Biblo f m morning till 1
nighl, and bit or sup didn't pass bis tips ail ti e
time, he was so intuit upon the book, but sat up in
so ould loom in the far ind of the huus', and bid
no one disturb hun on no account, and struv to
m ike his heart bould with tho words iv l.fe ; and
sure il was s imuhiug slringlhoncd him at Ian', tho'
a the time drew nigh that theirwmjr was to come,
he didn't feel aisy, aud no worldlier I and by dad,
the three was part aud gone in no time, and the
a ry goes, that ut the, dead hour o' the night,
when the poor sinner was roailin' away a last as he
coulJ, my jew'l, his heart jumped up Ij his mouth
at g. tlin' a tap on the shouldlier,
" Ob, tnuriher !' says he, who's there V for he
was afraid to look up.
" ' It's me,' says the ould one, and he stood right
forninst him, anj his eyes like coals o' lire,
lonkiii' him through, and he sa'd, with a voice
thht a'mcat split his ould heart, ' Come,' says
" ' Another day,' cried the poor color.ol.
" ' Not another hour,' said Sat'n.
" 'Half an hour V
" Not a quaither,' says'lhe Divil. grim. In' with
a bitter laugh give over your read in', I bid you,'
says he, ' and come away wid me.'
" Only gi' mo a few minute,' says he.
" Lave off your palaverin', you aneakin' ould
sinner,' says Sat'n ; you know you'ie bought anJ
sowld to me, and a purty be' gain I have t you,
you ould ba te,' say he, ' so come along at wanst,'
and he put out hi claw to kttch hiiu ; but th
Colonel tuk a fast hcul o' the Bible, snd Im gged
hard that he'd let him alone, and wouldu't harm
him anlil tho bit o' candle that w. a just bliiikiu' iu I
the s.icket U fore him, waa burned oul.
" Well have it so, you dirty coward,' said Ould
Nick, and with that he spit an him.
' But the poor ould Cnlonel didn't lose a minit,
(for he was cunnin' to the ind,) but snatched the
t.tle tasle o' candle that was forninst him, out o'
I ho candlestick, and, puttiu' it an the holy book be
foie bim, he i-hut down the cover au it, and
quinched the light. Wid tlxt tbe Divil gave a
roar like a bull, and vanished like a flash of fire,
and the poor colonel fainted away iu hi chair ; but
the servant heerd the noise, (for the Divil tore aif
the roof o' the house when he he left it) and run
into the room, and brought their master to himself
agin. And from that diy out he wa an allhernd
man, and u-mj ! to have the Bible read to him every
day, for lie c-u.d nt read lumstii any more, by rai-
son of losin' bur eyesight, when the Divil hit bim
with the inpe of sail J in the face, and sfiher spit an
him; for the sand wiut iulo one eye, and he lost
tho other that a-way, avin' your presence.
So you sec, sir, ad her all, the Colonel, under
Heavon, was too able far the Divil, and by rcadiu'
the good book, bis son 1 wa saved, and (glory be to
God !) it't luU mighty improvin f"

THIS Journal was estahliahetl hv the American
Silk Society, for the purpose of dilTuring pruciical
information on the ci ltcbi er silk in 'he United
States. It has now been published one year, and
may be considered a work of standard chsracier.
Tho first year's publication, c.mipiinng the first
volume, conlaines a m-is.of valuable inloimsiion,
and it will tie the ol j. cl of the editor lo make
the second equal in all respets, if not superior, lo
the first. The imjiortanl fuel is now eta' lishrd be
yond any question, that the people ol the United
St ates can make silk rattrsa and aiTTte than
any other nation Uxn earth. It has been proved
by unimpeachable, test mony, thai the entire cost
nf producing silk ready far ma ket, doe not exceed
TWO HOLLAS ANB TWIITI FIVE CXNTS riB
rou.iD, and its lowest value is roc a dollabs asb
rirrr cists; slao, that oai acbk of ground plant

the trees are planted, rorar i-trnu r rnriids or
silk, leaving a clear profit lo the producer of ox a
Mi'NiiMr.n akii kioht diillaks ! Il has also licen
proved that the ehihlfn ami femalei nf any faring'

without any cost whatever to the expenses of the

the wbo'e amount of silk will be so much clear g .in,
