r..Kn.?.ii lota's a few davs since. A dashing
" yeun-merchant, who had long been a resident' of L
the hotel, and who is noted Jor his whole.scmiea
. hoapitality, had beta teased fur some weeks , by a
. number. of .female acquaintances to give an oysU-r
"supper to his friends of both sexes. He did not
.relish the idea much, particularly as he .believed
, it was with the oysters and not him that the la
dies were so overly anxious to spend the evening.
He at last, however, consented to give the fete,
resolving in his own mind to test the 'friendship
of his guests.,,, . ... ...... - t ; .-, :(
He U one of those dashing fellows .w ho never
do things by halves, and as soon as his decision
was known, there was no little anxiety among
.his femala acquaintances to receive a billet doux,
or in more common parlance, an invite to the
Sandango." " Dick," "for that is the familiar
name by which he is known, invited about forty
'couplea.-and made every arrangement to " da tiro
'thing tip brown." Th largest parfors, and most
xtensive hall in the house were engaged exprcss--ly
for the occasion." Those w1k were invited con-aide-red
themselves particularly fortunate, and
Dick's oysttir supper, was for many days the main
.topic of conversation in certain circles of Ion Jon.

The parlors were brilliantly illuminated, and

. At , that moment supper was annonnceil, by;

precise step and nulitary.cxactness, the gay and
happj- company proceeded to the supper room. '
How tbeir delicate, hearts throbbed as they be
held the. table fdled with' covered dishesr'all no
doubt full of oysters. How the ladies, almost
danced with .joy as they, beheld the mammoth
va&es with, tall and graceful stalks of celerythe

" One !" cried the steward, and every servant
stood erect. " Two J." and each extended a hand
across the table.. ." Three !" and forty hands
lrom as many waiters, touched the cover of a dish
on the table. The anxiety of the ladies to look
upon the dainty eastern luxuries which had been
prepared . for their dainty appetites, was now in
tense, and r .oiice.they seemed to think that the
useless table ceremonies of fashion might Le dis

Dick pretended not to observe the confusion of
his guests, but in the most liappy manner order
ed two fclices of cheese with a Boston cracker

the order. Dick talked pleasantly to those on his
right and left, and urged all present to. make
themselves at home. "With the hope that oyster's
would appear in the second course, some who had
almost starved -tuciute-Ivcs to .give". the oysters
room, - called for a cracker or a bit of cheese.
Dick ate heartily, and having sati.sficd his appe
titciuul none of .his guests aiiean'ng willing to j
indulge in his magnificent repast, he iavittd them
again to the parlors to rcsuiac the merry dauoc.
But the ser-icespf musicians .were no longer
needed. Some of the ladies were suddenly seized
with a dreadful headache, others announced that
they were suffering bad colds, and others again
were very much fatigued. . In fact, finding that
no oysters were to be jhad, the ladies soon excu
sed themselves and left for home. . It is said that
some were in such a hurry that tliry would not
wait, for carriages, : r . , .. i j(-t ...IT
y-After the ladies were gone, Dick,, with a few
friends, indulged in the oysters which had been
prepared, but were kept back for a second sup
per. The hurry of the ladies to get. away; after
the first supper -satisfied him of their strong at
tachment to his seippers--and while enjoying,'
after thtf departure, the oysters and champaigne
with his male friends he avowed himself a devoted
disciple ol bachelorism. - ;

. Crxiocs Historical Fact- During tho trou
bles in tho reign of Charles 1 , a country girl came
to London in search of a place as a servant maid,
but not succeeding, she hired herself to carry
out beer from a warehouse, and was one of those
called tub-women. '; The brewer observing a good
looking girl in tins low occupation, took her into
his family as a servant, and after a short time
married her. - He died while she was yet a young
woman, and left her the bulk of Uiis fortune
The business of brewing dropped, ; and MrUide
was recommended to the young; woman as a
skillful lawyer, to arrange her husband's affairs.
1 Hido, who was afterwards Earl of Clarendon, fin-
dine the w idow's fortune considerable, marriea
her. Br this marriage, there "was no other issue
than a daughter, who was afterwards the wife of
Jpb the II. and mother of jMaryi and Anne,
Queens of England. vs'ios'vv! r

"A few weeks since," your "correspondent was a
candidate before the Legislature' for the office of
Solicitor, in which race it is matter of record.'that
he got a " demnitiont threshing." ' He had divers
friends in tlie good city of Montgomery, and
among them was Mac, (who thought himself po-
lititieally darned because he raised a big fellow,
inreeconseculive'suolsj wjth a first rate 'revcrf

proposed to do some " trailing" of' rather a novel
sort. Said he to the candidate ' Your pointer
LoM, "will have puppies sbortly, eh ?" ' Ves."
" TVell, leave the disposing of them to mc--don't
promise one ayay ; the litter must bring you
votes enough to elect you:"" " 5 - ' ' ; '
So, Mac they fay went to work,' promising
Lola's puppies to young members who seemed to
be " favorable.',' . His description of the bitch
abounded in superlatives andj as to' that, they
yere ari deserved.'' Xl.'c"001'" ITieni d some
that wanted to be shoo'ling men, were "all alive"
to get specimens of stock of such transcendaat
qualities. ' " ' ' ' . '.' ' ,
When the caiididato was referred to about bis'
dogs', he gently waived tlie matter, saymg that
lu's friend Mac had somehow' got control of all
that, an J so forth and so on. J ".' "
Things progressed 'gloriously ; Mac 'reported
his successes daily, only once remarking, slyly,
that he was afraid it would strain Lola, sadly, to
comply with all his engagements; and at" last,
the day get apart for the election arrived. ;
" Our ticket V candidate was in the rotunda,
doing its best, an hour before the two Houses
met in convention: Presently a very young mem

with'j "' don't forget my puppy ! Several bthers
came up, about tlsis tiine, all " for our ticket,"

easy ; the crowd still thickened and nea'rjy eve--ry
one was saying' something about the 'fine jioin

date mentally counted the claimants, and when
he mared tlie figure; 12 and saw .others ap
proaching who looked as if they were "in," too.
he inconlincutly left for Ids' hotel.'
Two hours afterwards, there was a

sown at the rate of two or ' three bushels' to tho
acre-, and in July, when nearly fit for harvest, tha
straw being partly yellow and partly green, they
were plowed under, an ox chain having been rig
ged in Croulof the coulter, - so as to tur.i thcci
dowaJefoie the plow. 1'ixvjous to this plowing,
one and a quara.r bushels more of ground plasier
of pans was sprinkled on U:e ground. A second
crop of oats sprung up in a thiuk mat from thoso
plowed undor, and about the first of October thes
were turned down by the plow like .the first
growth. . Vheat was now sown, about one and
half bushels to the acre and harrowed in, fol
lowed by clover in the spring. The crop of wheat
averaged about eight bushel to the acre, aud this
it will be obcerved, without a shovel ftll of stabh
or other kind of animal manure. The clover had
a busliel of ground plaster spriukJed upon it in tLo
spring, aud yielded, the second season of its
growth, about a ton per acre the first mowing.
This laud, from which the vegetable mould lial

brought iuto a condition to yield con. pedaling
crops of wheat, corn, and vigorous clover. J?y

age about twenty-five bushels, aud of corn' Tort y
or fifty bushels to the acre. The ground' was
very Lght and easy to. work, and lis . Cummins
intimated the actual expense incurred per aero,
