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. [D.-Talking of "enlarging" newspa- pers, the editor of the Chicago Journal suggests that it's not the largest calf that makes the best veal !
