The belief in "signs," "wonders," and
"tokens" is very generally entertained among
the people in the "old rountry;" and even in
the United &etre, which boasts superior in
telligence, there are many good persons who
do not hesitate to X.zpre‘s their faith in the
same.- A ootemporary has been at some pains
to collect the most common of - these supersti
tions, and they present a curious conglochera•
lion, to say the least. Odd anp ridiculous as
they may appear to many of 0.1, however, we
venture to assert that one-third of the people
yea meet, especially among the older class of
the community will give their unhessitating
endorsement to more than one of these novel
imperiqltions :

waning of the moon, it will shrink.
GONI TO you leave port on a Fri.

firmly believed is this whim, that wafts ab

when Luoretia Borgia was being • clone
with slow murder at the Howard theatre,
Boston, the deathlike stillness which pre
vailed was iktddenly. broken. by. the-sob
bing, of some tender-hearted• fsiaislet
whose sycapithetic soul was - keenly alive
to the unfortunate condition of the afore
said victims. A modest young- men be.
gan to be interested on discovering the
female whose heart; like his oin; 'was so
susoeptible to human feeling. IWhilo the
young Romeo was looking frotif the par.
quet and scanning the couotenances.
the fair ones, he thought he experienced
& sensation a; it satnething was upon his
head. Raising his hint he found to his
delight that some young lady had acci
dentally dropped her cambric' handker
chief from the box directly above.
Our young Romed began to discover
that here was an opportunity to display
his gallantry. He arose, and, after pri
vately pressing the cambric to his lips,
'extended it, delicately secured between
the tips of his fingera,for the fair claimant
to take - possession of. At this moment a
head protruded over the gallery above,
and exclaimed in a low but distinct tone :
•"Chuck it up, soh !"
The young nun suddenly raised his
Ayes, and beheld ibe blackest wench that
white man ever laid eyes on. It is need
less to add that he dropped almost lifeless
into his seat, and a fsvored• few who
chanced to witness this ludicrous scene,
burst into uncontrollable laughter.

It is absurd to exempt fat men, they are
so well calculated to fill up the depleted
