A Laughable Predicament.
In December 18—, we were travelling
through one of the New England States in
an old•fashioned stage coach, with a friend
whose powers of making fun from the
slightest cause were manifest from any pas
sing object he choose to attack. It was
midnight, and as wo approached the vil
lage of R--d, he espied a large mansion
house on top of a small sugar-loaf hill,
close by the road. When we arrived op
posite, he asked the driver to stop a few
minutes. The request w as cheerfully
complied with, although wo were most
freezing, but what trick he had in view
none could guess.
The tunny gentleman =ached directly
up tc the front door of the mansion and
knocked with his cane loud enough to
to wake all the inhabitants. Immediately
a window sashe raised, and out popped a
red night cap containing the head of the
proprietor, who in alarm exclaimed—
. What—what's the matter? What's
wanted at this time of night ?'
, Pardon me, sir, for this intrusion; but
I have a communication to make to you'
personally, and as the stage is waiting im
patiently for me, please hurry to the door
for one moment's interview.'
The old gentleman's night-cap with its
owner in a garment curtailed of its fair pro.
portions : were almost immediately at the
door politely bowing to the funny stranger
who again apologized for disturbing his
slumber and thus exposing him to the chil
ly winds of a December night.
'My dear sir,' interrupted Mr. Night
cap, 'don't mention it, but pardon me for
appearing before you in the plight which
you see me?
'You are certainly quite excusable, and
especially as my great haste prompted this
courteous response to my call upqn you.'
'Be pleased to step into my house, as I
notice some ladies in the coach aro attract
ed by my appearance.'
'Never mind them, my dear sir. Your
finely located mansion has arrested the at
tention of us all—it makes a truly beauti
ful appearance in the bright moonlight.—
Speaking of the moon, brings to my mind
the question which has recently agitated
the scientific world, and in which you've
undoubtedly been interested, viz : Is this
luminary inhabited or is it not inhabited ?
'Excuse rily interruption sir, but allow
me to get a cloak, for I am almost frozen,
'Ten thousand pardons, my dear friend,
but the stage is waiting for me, and I must
loose no time, for all things in this world
'Allow me to remind you, sir, that you
desired to make a communication to me.—
I am now ready to receive it.'
met how unmindful I am in the
discharge of a duty incumbent upon me,
which has been so long protracted, I most
'Oblige me, sir, by coming directly to
the communication you desired to make to
'Again, I beg you to forgive my appar
ent tardiness in doing so. The fact, my
dearest sir, which as a scientific man I felt
it my duty to divulge to you for your own
benefit, for I need not inform you that
men endowed with scientific attaintnents,
'But, sir, I dainand, without further de.
lay, what is tho important fact you desire
to communicate ?'
It is simply this : Your house being sit
uated on the apex of a hill, with sides slo
piug sufficiently to allow water to flow
therefrom, I have stopped the stage coach
this cold night, and aroused you from your
slumbers, to apprise you of the fact, that
you can with the greatest ease drain your
cellar from Jour different directions'/'
'You infernal scoundrel r shrieked the
astonished and infuriated proprieior,
teach you a trick worth a dozen of this,' as
he seized the fuu ny gentiernan's cane,
who had commenced a rapid retreat for
tho coach—the red• nightcap and abbrevi
ated white garment after him as fast as
two spindle shanks could carry him. But
the funny gent gained upon his pursuer,
jumped into the coach, which was put into
full speed up an adjoining hill, with the
enraged country gentleman, in curtailed
garment fluttering in the breeze, in cold
pursuit, but whose hot imprecations again
us all were enough to stifle the mirth of a
On arriving at the top of the hill, by one
of those singular coincidences which some
times happen at the crisis, to mar or heigh
ten one's happiness, we suddenly came in
contact with two open carriages abreast,
loaded to overflowing with ladies and gen
tlemen who were returning from a country
ball. The attention of the whole party
was soon turned to our red-capped white
garmented pursuer, who, not liking so ma
ny lady spectators, hurled his cane at us,
(which however glanced by and roused a
family of pigs by the roadside,) and com
menced a rapid retreat for home, followed
by a dozen squeeling pigs, barking dogs,
and a flock of quacking geese. The scene
presented was the most ridiculous imagi
nable, and such wild outbursts of uncon
trollable merriment is seldom heard; in

guish fire, so sure will this cure humor. - I never
sold a bottle of it bet thatsuld another; after ,a
