Not an invited guest was absent, - so anxious were the ladies to partake of Dick's ' .oysters, and tho gents to accommodate the la- flies. The parlors were brilliantly illuminated, and at a given signal delicious music from a choice band charmed the cars of his gucsta, aud sent them wizzing and skipping through the graceful polka and the rapturous mazurka.

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 :..
