Death from Sopentttion.
David Boston a colored man, died near
Ilchester, Md., on the Ist inst., a Victim
to superstition and knavery. The How
ard Gazette says : . . . . .
Some three months before his death,
it appears he was taken sick with a cold.
He suffered from the accumulation of
phlegm on the chest and from the
choking sensation and hoarse sound in
breathing, he and his wife concluded he
had a frog in him, and that somebody
had 'tricked' hint. His wife according
ly went to Baltimore to consult a harpy
called a 'Fortune Teller,' a white per
son, who tully confirmed, of course,
their notions, and told her that the first
person who should visit the house after
her return home was the 'tricker.' She
was als further instructed to let nothing
come in nor nothing go out of the house.
After his wife's return, a neighboring
colored man went to the house, but
was driven away from the place by
Boston's wife. The poor victim took
little or no nourishment—no one was al
lowed to visit him, until he died the vic
tim of ignorance and wicked advice,-
After his death, about fifty small calico
balls were found about him, having been
placed there to break 'the spelt.'
Good Advice to Pic-Nickers.
The Sunday Timesgives the following
seasonable hints of, the formation and
conduct of pic-nicks :
Two ingredients, however, are abso
lutely necessary—a smart humorist and
a good butt. A pick-nick party without
these would be like a pantomime with
out a clown and pantaloon. Avoid en
gaged pairs. They sneak oft into se
cluded spots to bill and coo, and contrib
ute nothing to the common stock of fun.
Beware of bores. One bore is capable
of turning the gayest troop of merry.'
makers that ever started to enjoy a fete
champetre into a patre-grievous set of
mourners. People that are afraid of a
shower should have nothing to do with
pic-nicks, as a rain-storm usually 'comes
oft' during the performance. Roast
chickens, boiled hums, bottled porter,
light•hearts, champagne, sparkling eyes,
accessible lips, the gift of the gab, a ca
pacity for punning, natural or acquired
from Joe Miller, [Joe Barber would do
as well.—D. B.] good padestrian facul
ties, and an indisposition to imbibe the
rheumatism from dump grass, are abso
lute requisites to pie-nick parties.
QUA western paper informs us that
"a lady, while stepping into one of the
cars with a pair of spectacles on missed
her footing, and came near losing her
life." A car with a pair of spectacles
on, must be a curiosity.
