that day, and each had a negm next to them.
I saw Amy was working her wits, the result
of which was an announcement that if the
children had to associate with negroes, I
I regarded the threat as an'idle boast, and
thought no more of it.
A few days after this I notified her that
General-and his Wife would dine with
us. Her eyes sparkled; I knew there was
mischief brewing. but I could not foresee it.
I advised her shut the General, his wife
and I would be at the cottage at one. And
sure enough we were.
And Amy was prepared for us. She had
prepared an excellent, dinner, and met us at
the door to welcome. us, announcing at the
same time that dinner was ready.
As soon as we were prepared she led the
way to the dining room, and had a saucy old
negro by the name of Crow with his wife
and the two that were seated next to our
children at school already at the table.. She
apologized for her haste in seating her first
guests, assuming that she had concluded we
were not coming, and then proceeded to for

brother • Crow, sister Crow, Master Crow
and little Miss Crow.
I felt a, good deal like crowing some my

of her happiest moods. Old Crow sat back
with his thumbs in the arm-holes of his dila

arms was assuming an air of maidertinno
Amy handed the General a seat by the
wench, which filled up that side of the table,
and hurriedly seated the General's wife by
old gums' andivory. Then gathering np the
children seated them, beside their school fel;
lows, after which she took hCr seat at the
head of the table, and requested me to be
seated at the further end to wait upon the

the General's wife arose and remarked that
she did notintend to bear the insult further.
At this the General flea into a passion, and
accused me of purposely arranging an insult.
I protested, and accused Amv, and as I did
so old - Scruags - stepped in. The General re
"marked, "you old butternut, you are at the
bottom of this." My Aniy reminded him that
was her home, nod no one should insult her
father there, and ordered him to leave.
The General called her a dirty huzzy for
insulting his wife, and at this old Seragga-bit
him with the knot end of .a lhaternut limb.
I sprang between them to protect my guest,
when old Crow placed the General and
I upon an equaliiy. In the melee the wench

Virtue in Washington.
The good people who live in the country
have no idea of the corruption and prostitu
tionthitt exists, or how, rapidly -our social
system is being undermined. Virtue is held
cheaply; and, while the conventionalities of
society are respected openly, they are defied
in Secret. •Iden - and women assume purity
when brought face to face with religious
foriris,.but they do not wear it when the
doors close behind them, and shut out the
light of the world. Society is - fearfully con:
rupt, and morality is only a thin shadow be
hind which the scenes of vice and licentious
ness are boldly shifted. Prostitution is - one
of the common evils of the land. 'Yon need
not seek for it only in out-of-the way streets,
behind mysteriously darkened windows, or
In a Broadway promenade alter nightfall,
bat also In palace-like' houses, and in high
places of official trust. Washiligtoe is a i l
very Sodom. Some of the Departments are
dens of corruption. A female clerkship, too
often, is but a narrow screen held up be
tween the world and dishonor. Women by
scores are In Government employ at Wash
ington, who outrage virtue night a ter night,.
and Senators, Congreasmee, and leading pol
iticians have a criminal knowledge of the
fact. Young girls _in the country, inspired
with a noble feeling of independence, and
blinded by a flattering offer, are tempted to
take a clerkship 'at Washington.; they leave
home for the city, and in a few months a
wild and dissolute life tells how complete is
their ruin. They sacrifice virtue and become
the concubines of those who retain them in
power. We warn the pure minded girls of
America that Washington is no place for
them; it is an iniquitous city, made so by
those whom the people have raised to posi
tions of trust and honor. A gentleman well
acquainted behind the scenes, was recently
requested by a friend to lend his influence'
toward obtaining a clerkship in one of the
Departments for a virtuous young girl.
"Certainly, sir," he remarked, "but let me
enlighten you in regard to the qualifications
necessary to conunend success. The young
lady must possess sensual - charms, an& pos
sessing them must have no squeamish no
tions about offering them for sale." Shock
ing as this declaratiob may appear, it is
strictly true. A female clerkship at Wash
ington, in many instances, is but a respecta
ble kind of prostitution. Let any man in
the world visit Washington, and if he does
not meet with a face in some one of the De
partments that was once known to him in
the dark, mysterious walks of life, then we
will acknowledge that we are laboring under
an embarrassing mistake.
Comical Scene in a Church.
From the Newark (New Jersey) Courier.]
On Sabbath last, in one of our prominent
Broad street churches, the closeness of the
atmosphere produced an almost irresistible
feeling of drowsiness among many of the
congregation. Of the number who found it
impossible to deny the drowsy god was one
°Cour most successful business men, whose
honest efforts to throw off the somnific Maui
efice he was under were witnessed by sever=
al:lookers-on; At last he succumbed; his
eyes went shut and failed to come opin
again, and his bead began to nod to this anti
that neighbor quite familiarly. Presently
the sleeper's head slowly went towaids its
owner's wife, and continued to sag, sag in
that direction, until a delicate sprig on my
lady's hat pointed directly into the ear of the
snoozing husband. One more lurch of the
head on "that line" would cause the tapering
sprig to enter, and peculiarly affect the sen
sitive portion of that delicate organ,.and'sey
eral persons in the gallery were -giving
breathless attention to the scene, fully an
ticipating an extraordinary denoumentwhen;
the connection between the ear and sprig
should be effected. At last it came, the
heavy head made another sag wife-ward, a
tull inch, the sprig passed into the ear as
nicely as if it had been pointed by roguish
hands, and penetrating to the inner and
most sensitive portion, tickled the nodding
gentleman so intensely that he drew up his
head with a jerk, and striking out with his
right hand before he way fairly awake, dealt
his wife a blow full upon her new bonnet, to
the utter discomfiture of its flowers and rib
bons, and to the infinite amusement of the
lookers-on in the gallery.
My . Courtship.
When I was sixteen I fell in love. There
was nothing remarkable in that, for most
young men of that age do the same thing.
But what I am going to tell you is, how my
courtship terminated. It was at a party that
I saw Sallie B—r, who was one of the pret
tiest girls in Tickton; and I tell you, she
looked sweet in her white muslin ball-dress,
with her hair falling loosely over her should
ers. I got an introduction, danced with her
once, twice, thrice, and I was just the hap
piest man in all Tickton. Well, at last the
.party - broke up; but I had an invitation to
call on Miss B—. That was all I wanted,
and I didn't sleep much before Sunday eve
ing—for that was the time I'd fixed to call.
I called ; saw 3liss Sallie to church—saw
her home : and when I left I had a pressing
invitation to call again ; and I did not for
get it I assure you. At the end of a month
I was completely gone. At last I resolved to
"pop the question." and fixed on my next
visit for the time, Studied "Courtship Made
Easy," thoroughly and concluded I was
ready for the task. Time arrived. Here I
was sitting by the side of my beloved, with
my arm around her waist ! took her hand
bi thine. and screwed up my courage to say,
"Dear Sallie, do you love me?" She made
no answer; but her eves were cast down,
and I hoped—yes, I was certain—she loved
me. I put both my arms around her neck,
and I pressed one, two, three kisses on her
rosy lips. She did not resist, but raised her
head and said:
"You're as bad as Sam Simmons!"

newspaper published in this city—announces

President of Harvard College, he was going
one rainy day from Boston to Cambridge in
the omnibus. At the bridge. the omnibus
stopped and a poor black woman with a
heavy basket got in. There was no seat for
her, and no one of the young men in the 'om
nibus offered her his place. Mr. Mt Quin
cy rose, and, with the quietest politeness,
said to the woman, "Madam, be good enough
to take this seat," and he took his place out
side the door, upon the steps of the vehicle,
The act was characteristic of the man.

BAPS BALL IN THE FAiiILIL—AR Etaatigo
tells of a man who became so infatuated with
the game of base ball that he insists on run
ning the "home" machine on the base ball
system. His children, being quite numerous,
are divided off into "nines . 'At the table
they are assigned their, respective positions,
and the servant ordered to take the "first
base." His wife, whose word "none dare
dispute," is styled the "Umpire" and himself
the "batsman," his duty being to , dog the
children. When the youngest child cries he
designates this a "foul bawl," and orders the
servant to stop it. A few days since this gen
tleman returned home and found dinner not
ready and the servant leisurely reading a ten
cent novel, whereupon ho ordered her to put
a "short stop" to such proceedings. 'Here
the "Umpire" put in, and the result was a
fuss in the family, and a practical illustration
of the fact that base ball is a game that don't
work well in the family circle.
