Did you ever go n courtiii", niece, or to court' One's about the same us Cattier. There ain't but prrshus little to choose ntwee6 the twe;any 'how you can fix it. In one you have to be asked a powerful site of impudent questions, and in t'other you bare to ask the questions yourself. So there ain't much difference in 'em, and if you try both, you'll say just as I do. About the matter of two years ago, John Smith's cow broke Into Sam Jones' field and marched jest as straight as her four legs could carry 6cr into his turnip patch. and eat up two turnip:3, tope end all.— Jones he seed her, and he sot his yeller dog on her, and the dog, (he's a savage critter) bit a hole through her hind leg, and got his brains kicked out to pay for it. Su fur fonts and Smith were square, but there was them turnips—Jones vowed he wouldn't plant turnips for a well, able bo died man's cow to eat up. and sed if Smith didn't walk right over to his house and settle the damage, he'd pros' cut him with a writ. Smith is a dare devil sort of a fel low, and he told him to "come nn," he warn% aleord on him. As it happened, I was out agoin' to the Conferen's meetin' when the cow jumped into the field, so I seed the hull performuns. Jones he seed me, and knowd that I seed the scr,p , , so lie. jilt gin me a little kin of scrip blue paper, with somethin . orful ecrawlin' on it. Cicero read it, and land enuff to kilt himself. 'What upon airth is it, Cicero ?' Bei I 'lt ain't a buy letter, is it ?' sez I for old Deacon Danis, (lost his wife about a year afore,). had . looked erluld sharp at me the day before, to afternoon meetin'. 'No, it ain't a luv letter,' sez he, 'but a courtin' letter from Sam Jones.' 'A courtin' letter from Sam Jones ?' sez I; 'why Sam Jones is a married man with ten children and a baby ! What does he want of more family I wonder ?' don't want any more family as I knows of,' said Cicero, but he wants you to go to the Falls neat Thursday to court, and tell what you seed John Smith's brin. die cow do in his turnip field.' 'O, my gracious massy !' sec I, half skeered at the idea of going to court. .1 . can't go—it's my ironing day, and I ought to make my apple sass that day too. I can't go—you can jilt go over and tell na tio'. Jones that I'd be glad to obleego him, but !can't go a deal of onconveni snce.' 'But niartn,l sex Cicero, folding up the part, gills is a h horifl's or lawyer's sum- 1 mons, writ out of a big law book, and you will either have to go or be carried to jail. - That's the way they starve folks who don't mind the law.' 'To jail! Hannah Tripe to jail!' sez I, as indignant as I could be; 'l'll lam 'em better works than to kerry an Innocent wo• man to jail. 'l'll lay the broomstick over 'em if they come n•neer me.' no use talking marm.' says Cicero jYou'll have to go, and you might as well be consigned to the levees of unalterable fate ! The laws of yer country must be minded ! The glorious country that the Pilgrim Fathers fit and bled for ! you must respect he , . commands!' And Cicero riz hisself, and sot up his eyes and hands, Ijest as I've seen Parson Sorapowell do when lie's a giving out the malediction. Well, I thought the matter over, and concltided I'd better go to court; so I iron ed on Tuesday, and made my apple sass Wednesday. Thursday, nabor Jones come over airly, and took me into his smart new buggy to berry me to the falls. We had I a site of talk about the cow and the dog and the turnips while we were goin', and by the time we'd drove unto the court room, Jones had made up his mind that he had beaten Smith for sartin. I went into the great square room a little flustratcd, I'll own; for there was the sightest of folks there, blue eyes, grey eyes, green eyes, black eyes, all fixed on Jones and I its we marched up in front of the I, judge , Good mornin', Squire,' coo I, bowing to a little, old, dried up nosed feller with a ynller wig on. hope your honorable health is good !' 'Keep quiet, Mrs. Tripe,' sez nabor Jones, nudging my elbow, 'it ain't proper to speak to his honor 'thout he asks ye questions.' They took me to a little platform built up on cone side of the room, and sed might sit down if I was a mind to—so down I sot. My goodness! what funny actions they aid have! Talking all sorts u th a a c t !mill could 'revised statutes,' 'civil laws,' and nobody ,knows whnt.

Byrne.by, arter I'd begun to feel hun gry and want my dinner, a tall, scraggy man, with green specs on his nose, riz up and sez he , Mrs. Hannah Tripe, stand up in your seat.' 'Lord !' tez I. 'you don't want me to climb up in a cheer afore all these folks, do yet' 'We want none of your low jests here,' sez he, coloring up till he look like a red flannel nightgown ; 'rise up and stand !' 'O, yes,' sez I, 'l'd as liaf git up as not —for my back begins to ache, I've sot an !Ong: So I histod up, and looked round on the ordinance.' 'liaise your right hand,' sez the tall man, solemnly. 'lf you've no objections,' sea I, 'l'd ra ther hint up my left one; my right hand glove has got a stem' big hole right on the palm of it !' Everybody sot up a great lafl at this, and the tall man turned into . a red agin. 'Order, order, gentlemen sez a pert little fellow will a buckle on his hat and a big bile on the end of his red nose, 'you will be committed for contempt,' said he speaking low to me. 'Thank you sir, for tellin' me,' sez I, .but you're a little mistook I hain't got the contempt, never had it, that I know of, but I've had the influenzy bad enufl, so bad—' 'Mr. Attorney, examine that woman with despatch—the Court waits sez the judge, tryin' hard to keep on his long face. Raise your right hand and swear—' never swear—it's wicked,' sex I, gi ving him a look of disgust, a member of the church swear ! The good Lord for bid.' . . .Never mind, toy good woman,' sez the judge, 'say yes to what the gentleman will read to you from the book—it will be suffi cient, amply so.' The tall man then took up the big book and read out loud and ever so long a a lot of gibberish that I didn't understand then, and can't remember now, but it was to the effect that I should tell everything I knowed and nothing more, and swear it was all true. 'Dear sake !' sez 1, 'it I've got to toll ev erything I know, it'll take me a month or two, and I should like to have some dinner afore I begin.' 'You're not to tell anything except the circumstances connected with the turnip field of my client,' says the tall man pul• ling away at his whiskers, " LIBERTY AND UNION. NOW AND FORAYER, ONE AND INSEPARABLE." UNTINGDON, PA., WEDNESDAY, JUNE 10, 1857. 'I don't know anything about yer olient, sea I. '1 never seed it to the best of my knowledge; it was Smith's cow that got in the t trnip patch.' , Did you see the defendent'a cow make forcibly entrance into the plaintiff's enclo sed field?' sez he, looking as grand as the king of Independent Tartary. '1 seed John Smith's cow jump into Sam Jones' turnip yard, if that's what you want to Oat,' sez 1. 'The same thing marm the same thing only in different langwidge. Where were you standing at the time of the occur. rence ?' .In the yard on my feet.' 'What color was the animal that you saw vault over the fence? Could you identify her from all other of the spa• cies?' 'She was a brindle—a thread of red dr and one of black.' sez I 'Describe her more fully,' sez he, .She hap a head, two horns, two eyes, one mouth, four legs and a tail,' sez L 'Did you see her with your own eyes devour two turnips in the plaintiff field!' •'lVith my own eyes? To bo sure— Whose eyes did you think I'd borrow- 'Could you swear it was turnips that you saw her masticating.' 'I ain't gwine to swear anything about it.

Jest at this minis up jumped a little humbly, red faced man, that had been talking with John Smith ever so long in a whisper, and stick• in' his thumbs into the armholes of his vest, sez he—. Allow me to nsk the wit ness a fear questions your honor. The judge bowed, and the red-faced man went on-- Mrs, Tripe, you say you know Mr. Jones—do you know my client, Mr. John 'Yes,' sez I. 'What do ye know of him,' eez he.— 'State the good you know of him, if you please.' don't know any good of him,' sea I. 'He robbed my hen roost, last spring, of the best pallet nod the handsomest crow er I had in the flock. That's the most I know of him any way,' 'The witness may sit down,' sez the judge, takin' out his handkerchief and pre tendin' to blow his nose, though it's my opinion he was trying to keep from laugh ing. A madder feller than Smith you never seed ; hut they wouldn't let him say a word, and I twiny 'Veered he'd bust, he was so full of bilin' hot rage agin me, There were a great deal of talkin' and disputin' in the room—and arter awhile the jury sed they'd decide the case. One of the juryman stood up and sed he thought Smith's cow hadn't no business to jump into Jones' yard and devour two of bib turnips. Another of 'em got up and Bed he knowed the cow hadn't ort jump in, but the turnips had no business to look so temptin,' and for his part ho thought the turnips was full as much to blame as she was. Another of 'em and that Jones ought to pay Smith for his cow killing his dog, for the dog, he sed, was the ugliest critter upon the face of the airth. The judge sent 'em all otf on! intor an• other roam to make up their minds what they'd do—and we sot as still an mice i svaitin' (or 'em to cum back. Byrne by the door opened and in they cum—twelve of 'em, two and two, and sot down. 'Gentlemen of the jury," aez the judge "have you arrived at a conclusion?' All of 'jilt bowed their heads sauna. Iy. 'Who shall speak for you," says he, lookin' as iodignitied as an owl in a holler tree, I 'Our foreman, Mr, Antipedes,' sez they with one voice. Mr. Antipedes riz up, slow and steady, jist as you've seen ''ern hist up rocks with a derrick, as if he was afeered if he'd si dle over a mite he should sprawl himself on the floor. Antipedes is an orefu I grate man, and his heed is the biggest part of him—rather top heavy, ye see. 'May it please yer honor, and the court at large,' sez he, rolling his eyes round and round, till they looked like two great dirty snow balls sliding down a hill, , we have decided that John Smith give to Mr. Samuel Jones the sum of two turnips, as the amount of damage done the latter by the excursion of the former's cow into the plaintiff's primises There was considerable laffin in court arter this, and one (oiler hollered 'order !' so much and so loud that they sed it was a fact he couldn't speak out loud (or a week afterwards.

Since that scrape, if ever I see a cow that looks as if she was ngwine to jump in anywhere, I jist turn my back to Ler and say--Go ahead!' I,liscrliang. The Dred Scott Decision Applied. Slamming the last door of the first car, and opening that of the second, the "gen tlemanly conductor" of the New York train made his appearance with bis bow and smile, and ""Tickets, gentlemen if you please." Seated in the front corner, surrounded by personal conveniences, such as a car pet bag, umbrella, big bundle, little bundle a few apples and pieces of cake, was a co lored lady, whose lace—the hue of an in veiled saucepan, contrasting with her snow white ivory and eyeballs gave that ikaMv,q Himess ion wit ich is so gmgr nature. with civility regardless of complexion. I '1 hasn't got 'mu.' she replied, but I'se gist money, any way' ; and she began to fumble in her bag, then in the bundles, searching these articles through in vain. 'Come hurry up,' exclaimed her now impatient friend ; .1 can't wait all day.' 'Dress yer soul, yer don't think I find everything in a minute, but rue got inon ey somewhar—must be in die yeah cawpet bag,' end she felt in her pocket according. ly fur the key. 'Well, well, I'll pass through and when I get back perhaps you will have it ready.' 'Yes, sartin,' said Dinah ; but as he passed along she reached out her umbrel la, and giving him a poke upon the shout• der, asked, 'What you g'wain to charge on freight?' 'Freight ! what do you want to know that for ?" 'Cause I does ; Fse civil ain't 1 ?' 'Well, five coma a foot ; there, don't bother me any more, but find your money'; and he went his way. There seemed to be a peculiar drollery about the lady's eye and mouth, as the one rolled around in its black sea of flesh, the other opened to give vent to an involuntary 'ph ! ha !" It was not long now before she found her purse, and withdrew some coin, which she kept jingling in her hands as she kept up her occasional cacehina dons. In due time the conductor returned for his money. and upon extending his itching palm, was astonished at receiving the pre cis° sum of ten cents. 1% hat do you mean?' he exclaimed.— el'he fare to New York is five dollars.' ..Yas, yas, I knows dat, for white folks —folks what am folks—but Inc nobody ; l'se freight, I is. Yah, ynh!—Poor rule as don't work bof ways ; five cents a feet, heah day is!' said she, extending a pair of enormous ambulamrs for the inspection of the conductor and us all. • The nonplussed functionary stood unde termined for a moment amid the shouts of the passengers, until on idea of Compro mise occurred to hint, as he exclaimed Well, if you are freight, take yourself uff into the baggage car.' But even there Di nah was too much for him, as she re• plied..Jete you piok up your freight if you want to cair um off!" This settled the.point..

Not long sinoe a farmer from our State was bitterly complaining of a railroad to one who wee connected with the manage ment of the road. 'Why,' said tile farmer, 'I was fool enough to take stock to the amount of hve hundred dollars, and I have lost every cent of it. And, besides, the cursed thing runs through my farm ' 'And has greatly injured it, I suppose,' added the other, smiling and looking the farmer full in the face. 'lnjured it!' replied the farmer. 'To be sure it has. Why do you ask such a foolish question ?' 'Bow much damage were you paid by the corporation !' naked the other. 'ln the neighborhood of six hundred dol lars,' replied the farmer. 'But it was not half enough,' 'Of course not,' added the railroad man, smiling. 'But permit me to ask you ano ther question. What would you have sold your farm for a dozen years ago ?' was once offered twenty•five hundred dollars.' replied,' replied the farmer. 'And what can you sell it for now!' in• quired the other. The fainter scratched his head ;and af ter some hesitation, confessed he had been recently ofiered four thousand dollars. 'Just as I expected,' was the reply of the other. 'Now let us figitre up a mo ment, if you please. You have lost hve hundred in the stook, and received for land damages six hundred, and the railroad has added to the price of your land, according to your own showing, fifteen hundred, so that you fairly owe the railroad sixteen hundred dollars. Am I right ?' The farmer was compelled to confess he had made money out of the railroad, not. withstanding he had lost five hundred dol lars in the original stoc... Thus it is, and what shell we say of the croaking farmers, who nev,r pain a cent for the making of the road, and whose farms have been near ly doubled in value by it? There are hundreds of such, and yet :bey are con. smutty heaping curses upon railroads and munagement. Again there is darkened chamber in ginia.

Taney we Burnside. At the late term of our Circuit Court, John Boyer a negro, applied for license to sell groceries cite , which was granted by Judee Burnside. The lees of the State forbids the gran ting el tiny license to persona who are not citirms. Judge Taney in his lute de cision in the Dn-d Scott case decied that negroes and mula.toes were not citizens, but citatt les. things, property Ac., and out side of the pule ol the law. But Judge Burnisida by thin act has decided other wise. Which is correct, Burnside or 'Taney?
