The other evening I come home with an
extra ten dollar bill in my pocket—money
that I had earned by out•of.houra work.—

and Kitty—my wife, you'll understand—
does all her own work ; so that we lay up
a neat little sum every year. I've got a
balance of two or three hundred dollars at
the savings bank, the hoard of beveral
years, and it is astonishing how rich I feel.
Why, Rothschild himself isn't a circum
stance to me !
Well. I came home with my extra bill,
and showed it triumphantly to Kitty who.
of course, was delighted with my industry
and thrift.
'Now, my love,' said I, 'just add this to
our account at the bank, and with interest
at the end of the year—'
Forthwith I commenced casting interest
and calculating in my brain ; Kitty was si.
lent and musing and rocked the cradle with
her foot.
'l've been thinking. Harry,' -she said,
after a moment's pause. 'that since you got
this extra money we might afford to get a

her first ambitious point, wisely withdrew

ingly on my shoulder, 'and it's not extra.

'What is it ?' I asked, softening very
•I saw such a lovely silt dross pattern on
Canal street, this morning, and I can get it
for six dollars—only six dollars; Harry !
It is the cheapest thing I ever saw.'
'But haven't you got a ve•y pretty gre ,, n
silk dress ?'
'That old thing ! Why, Harry, I've
worn it ever since we have been married.'
'ls it soiled, or raggee
•No, of course ; but who wants to wear
the same green dress forever? Everybody
knows it's the only silk I hnvo.'
Well, what then V
'That's just a man's question,' pouted
Kitty. •And I itippsoe you have not obser
ved how old•lnshioned my bonnet is now
• .11'hy I thought it looked very neat and
tneeful* since you pot on that black velvet

Of coarse—you men have no taste in
arch matters.'
.We were silent for a moment ; I ant
afraid we brth felt n little cross; and out of
imam with each other. In fact, on my
j.,urney home, I had entertained serious
thought s of exchanging my old silver
watch for a inapt modern time.; kce of
g.tld, and hid mentally appropritted the
CO to furthering that purpose. Savings
bank reflections had come later.
As we sat be-faro our fire, each wrapped
in thought, our neighbor, Mr. Wilmot,
knocked at the door. He was employed
ut the sonic store as mpself, and his wife
was an old family friend.
'1 want you to congratulate me,' he said,
taking a seat. have purchased that lit

'What ! that beautiful little wooden with

, Is it possible ?' I cried. A little cottage
home of my . own, jun% like that I had often
admired on the Bloomington road, had al. ,
ways been the one crowning ambition of
my life—a distant and almcsi. hopeless
point, but no less earnestly desired.
'Why, Wilmot,' said I, 'haw did this
happen ? You've only been in buginess
eight or ten years longer than I, ate salary
bat n trifle larger than mine, yet I could as
soon buy up the mint as purchase a cot

, Well.' said my neighbor, 'we have all
been working to this end for years My
wife has earned, patched, mended and sa
ved—we have lived on ' , lain fare, and done
with the cheapest things. But the 'nap,
charm cf the whole affair was that we laid
aside every penny that was not needed by
actual, positive want. Yes, I have seen
my wife lay by red coppers one by one.'
'Well, you are a lucky fellow,' said I,
with a sigh.
-Times are hard, you know, just now ;
the owner was not what you call an econo
mical man, and he was glad to sell even at
a moderate price. So you see that even
'hard times' have helped me
When our neighbor was gone, Kitty and
i I looked ineaningly at one another.

after all, and my green silk will do for a
year longer, with care.'
'We will set aside all imaginary wants.'
'The ten dollar bill must go to the bank,'
said Kitty, 'and I'll economize the coppers
just as Mrs. Wilmot did. 0, how happy
she will be among the roses in that cottage

Our merry tea-kettle sung us a cheerful
little song over the glowing five that nignt

Slang Telma.
Tho use of slang, so prevalent among 1 ,
the half educated and fast portions of the
community, is pret y well hit off in the
following paragraph :
"If you wish to be 'A No 1' woman,
yon have got to toe the mark,' and be less
'highfalutin.' You may sing tslightually'
'like a martingal ; you may 'spin street
yarn' a: the rate of ten knots an hour; you
may 'talk like a book ;' you may dance as
if you were on a 'regular breakdown;'
and play the piano 'mighty fine,' but
tell you' you 'can't come to tea.' You
may be handsome, but you can't get in.'
You might just as well 'cave in,' first as
last, and 'abrquatulate,' for you can't 'put
it thro' tany way you fix it.' If you ima•
gine that you may ‘go it while you are
young, for when you get old you can't,'
you 'don't come it' 'by a long chalk '
up' now, nod do the 'straight thing.' and I
will 'set you down' as 'one of the women
we road of.' 'lf you come 'o the scratch,'
why I must • 'let you slide.' But if you
have a 'sneaking notion' for being a tregu
lar brick' there is no other way —'not as
knows on,'—no sirreo. Koss !' If n young
man should 'kind 'o shine op to you; and
you should 'cotton to him,' and he should
hear you say 'by the jumping Moses,' or
'by the living jingo, or 'my goodness, or
vow,' or 'go it Betsey, I'll hold rut* bon
net,' or 'mind put eye,' or 'hit 'nn again',
or 'take me away,' or dry up, now,' or
'cut stick,' 'or give him particular fits,' he
would certainly 'evaporate.'
A strange animal has been taken in
Trimble county, Ky. It is described as
being about the size of a common cat,
with very short legs, short tail, and a thick'
short head, resemling thot of a ball puppy
Its skin is coated with the finest fur, blue
color, which they sold for $5. It has been
seen by several persons, but none can tell
what it is. The old one has been seen and
chased to her den. She is about the size
of a small dog ; her bead and ttl very
much res.mbles that animal's in i-ngth
and shape. A large number of sheep ho.
nes aro Raloo be lying about her den. It
is said she will jump from one tree top to
another, like a squirrel.

Who has not knows, either from his
own sad experience, or from the observa
tion of other !elks' sad experience, the
miseries of a faithful, man? He is sub.
jected to a thousand pangs daily, yet re
ceives less sympathy, perhaps, than any
other sufferer. It is the custom of the
world to laugh at bashfulness. exert while
commisseratin,tr it, nnd laughter is the so•
rest thing a timid man can encounter. To
see the poor wretch enter a room lull of
company, is as good—or as bad—as a
play. Blushing and stammering, unable
t look up, feeling as if he were all hands
and feet, and as if every person present
was scrutinizing the minutest details of hi.,
personal appearance, he essays to spook
at least three words of salutation. But
he has no words in—they have all
flown, nnd left his mind vacant. When
he does think of them, they are always
the wrong ones, and he finds to his horror
that his voice is missing. In a sort of
spasmodic croak, he blurts out the first
sentence that ;irises, and feels that he has
excited still more attention A Indy says
•how is your mother ?' sad he, expecting

it bottle of chameagne, all with the same
free and easy sell-possession. Then, too,

Important Discovery.
Among the important discoveries con
s taiitly being made by the coast survey.
the office here has just received intelli
gence of a new channel leading into St.
George's Sound and Apalachicola Bay.
in Florida, with four feet more water on
the bar than nt the entrance commonly
u,ed. This new ohnnnel is close under
the eastern end of Dog Island..
This discovery is worth perhaps mil
lions of dollars to the people of. that sec
tion, and is but one of a blinder charnct
frequently following the labors of tie
coast survey. That department is render.
ing more service to commerce, navigation,
science, and humanity that be possi

der the albs direction of .its distinguished
superinmndent and his corps of essiAants,

country than most of its other institu' ions
Poverty of Statesmen,
Statesmen who are worthy of the appel•
lotion given Ulm; generally secure for
tunes. They devote themselves to pursuits
which, if honestly adhered to, rarely yield
rich rest suds.
Jefferson died comparatively poor. In
deed, if Congress hod not purchased his.
library. and given for it five times its value
he would, with difficulty, have kept the
wolf from his door.
Madison saved none, and was compara
tively rich. To add to his fortunes, how.
ever, or rather those of his widow, Con
gress purchased his manuscript papers,
and paid thirty thousand dollars for them.
James Monroe, the sixth President of the
United States, died in the city of New
York, no poor that his remains found n
resting_* pare through the charity of one of
the citizens. They remain in a cemetery
in Second S'reet, but no monument marks
the spot where they repose.
John Quincy Adams left some hundred
and fifty thouonnd dollars, the result of in•
dustry, prudence and inheritance. He was
a man of method and economy.
Merlin Van Buren is very Thro

Daniel Webster squandered some mil
lions in his lifetime, the product of his pro
fession and his political speculations. He
died, le.eving his property to his friends.
The former sold for less than menty thou.

Henry Clay left a very handsome es
tate. It probably exceeded one hundred
thousand dollars. Ile was a prudent man
ager, and scrupulous honest man.
James K. Polk left about one hundred
and fifteen thousand dollars; fifty thousand
of which he saved from the Preaulency of
four years.
.Ithn Tyler was worth fifty thousand
defers. Before he reached the i'residcn•

handed his means, and then married a rich
wife, •
Zachary Taylor left one hundred and
fifty thousand dollars.
Millard Fillmore is a wealthy man, and
keep. his money in a very strong nod safe
box. It will never be wasted in specula
tion or squandered in vice.
E7x•President Pierce saved some fifty
thousand dollars :rom.his term of service.
Col. Thomas IT. Beaton, we are sorry to
soy, died poor. He was anxious that
Congress should purchase one thousand co.
pies of Abridgement of the Congressional
debates, for distribution among the various
State libraries and foreign exchanges ; he
was of the opinion that such a purchase
would tend to diffuse a knowledge of the
political history of the comitry. Two
members of the House of It .presentatives
have the matter under consideration, by
his request, and trill bring it, an early day
before Congress, with, as they think, geOd
assurance of success.
