A Clock in the Crinoline,
The Missouri. Democrat tells the fol
lowing story of one of the defiant rebel
ladies lately returned from Canada to
St. Louis : "The revocation by the
Provost Marshal General of the orders
banishing certain rebels from the State,
has caused the return to our city many
high-spirited persons of both sexes.
One of the fair exiles who has recently
returned to the city, relates a striking
incident of her experience in Canada.
All kinds of goods are very cheap in
Canada, compared with prices here,
and the duty being high, smuggling is
carried on to a great extent along the
border, the American ladies being very
skillful in concealing contraband articles
in the folds of their petticoats and
amoag the couvolutious of their duplex
elliptic skirts: Our St. Louis lady had'
taken a fancy to one of those beautiful
little German clocks which can be
wound up to strike at any moment the
owner may desire to be awakened, and
she concluded to purchase it and smug
gle it across the line. She gave the
clock•seller particular directions to' fix
the alarm apparatus so it would not
strike, and he promised to do so. The
lady, delighted with her purchase, and
anticipating many a laugh with her St.
Louis friends over the story of the Can_
adian clock, fastened the time piece se.
cutely to her hoops, and started on her
homeward journey. Arriving at the
Custom House without accident, she
met the inquisitive conductor With a
complaisant countenance, and submitted
without a tremor to the search which
was instituted among her baggage.
The officer found nothing contraband
among her steets, and was passing to
the next traveller, when a loud `wh-r-r
-rl' was heard under the lady's skirts.
The strange noise was kept up for the
full space of a minute ; but to the lady
it seemed an hour, and she became trem
ulous and excited. The Custom House
officer, not daring to lay his hands on a
woman "sate in the way of kindness,"
obtained an iron rod, with which be felt
around the crinoline for the concealed
clock. He succeeded in bringing it
down, but the crystal was broken, and
the hands were.bent by the operation.
The lady arrived safely in St. Louis
-last week, and tells the story, with con
siderable humor, of the clock found in
the crinoline I"
Or A person in Paris noticed a poor
man with a wooden leg walking past his
hotel, and gave him a franc. The next
day he saw the supposed beggar, but he
had changed the wooden leg from the
right to left. Enraged at the deception,
he went up to the man, and exclaimed,
"You rascal, you had the wooden leg on
the other side yesterday You ate not
lame at all I" "Monsieur," was the re
sponse with dignity, "1 never said I was.
I wear a wooden leg for economy, so as
not to wear out my trowsets, , and I
change Ile leg to prevent one leg of the
trousers wearing out before the other."
fir An exchange says: "To start a
baulky horse don't beat him unmerciful
ly with a draypin, but fill his month with
dirt or gravel . from the roadside, and
he'll go. Now, don't laugh at e this bat

philosophy of the thing is it gives him
something else to think about. We
have seen it tried a hundred times, and
it has never failed.'"

Popping the Question.
"Bat why don't yoti,,get married?
said a bouncing girl, with a laughing
eye, to a smooth faced, innocent looking
youth, who blushed up to the eyes at
"Well I—" said the youth, stopping
short with a gasp, and fixing his eyes
upon vacancy with a puzzled and foolish
"Well, go on ; you what ?"? said the
fair cross questioner, almost impercepti
bly reclining nearer to the young man.
"Now just tell me right straight out,
't Why I-0, pshaw I I don't know!
"Yon do, I say yon do know, come,
now, I want to know."
"Oh, I can't tell you—"
"I say you can. Why, you know I'll
never mention it, and you may tell, of
course, you know, for havn't I always
been your friend ?"
"Well, you have, I know," replied the
"And I'm sure I always thought you
liked me," continued the maiden, in ten
der and mellow accents.
"Oh, I do upon my word—yes, indeed
I do, Maria," said the unsophisticated
youth, very warmly, and he found that
Maria had unconsciously placed her
hand in his open palm.
Then there was a silence.
"And then—well, John 7" said Itieria,
dropping her eyes to the ground.
"Eh I Oh I well !" said John, drop
ping his eyes and Maria's hand at the
"I'm pretty sure you love somebody,
John ; its •a fact," Maria, assuming
again a tone of railery. "I know you're
in love : and John, why dori4 you tell
me all about it at once ?"
"Well, 17" Oh, you silly mortal what
is there to be afraid of ?"
"Oh, it ain't because I'm afraid of
anything at all, and I'll ; well, now Ma
ria, I will tell you."
"Well, now, John 7"
"Bh— 7" , •
"I am in love ? now don't tell ; you
won't will you 2" said John, violently
seizing Maria by the hand, and looking
in her face with a moat imploring ex
"Why, of coarse, you know John, I'll
never breathe a word of it—you know I
won't, don't you John ?" This was spo
ken in a mellow whisper, and the cherry
lips of Maria were so near John's ear
when she spoke, that if he had turned
hie head s to look at her, there might
have occurred a dangerous collision.
"Well, Maria," said John, "I've told
you now and you shall know all about
it. I have always thought a great deal
of you, and—"
"I am suro you would do anything for
me that you could—"
"Yes, John, you know I would."
"Well, I thought so, and you don t
know bow long I've wanted to talk to
yon about it."
"I declare, John, I—yon might have
told me long ago, if you wanted, for I m
sure I never was angry with you in my

felt a great mind to, but—"
"It's not too late now, you know,
"Well, Maria, do you think I am too
young to get married V'
"Indeed; I do not John ; and I know
it would be a good thing for you, too,
for everybody says the sooner young
people are married the better, when they
are prudent and inclined to love one
"That's just what I think, and now
Maria, I do want to get married, and if
"Indeed I will, John, for you know I
was always partial to you, and I've said
so often behind your back."
"Well, I declare, I've all along thought
you might object, and that's the reason
I've been always afraid to ask you."
"Object! no, I'd die first; you may
ask of me just what you please."
"And you'll grant it ?"
"Then, Maria, I want you to pop the
question for me to Mary Sullivan, for—

"Do you love Mary. Sullivan,?
"06, indeed I do, with all my heart ?
"I always thought you were a fool."
"I say you're s fool, sod you'd better
go home, your mother malts you I Oh
you—you—yon stupid!" exclaimed the
mortified Maria, in a shrill treble, as
she gave poor John a slap on the cheek
that sent him reeling. It was noonday,
and yet John declares he saw myriads
of stars flashing around him, more than
he aver saw before in the night time.

- who are worthy of the appella4on
given, them, generally fail to secure for
tnnes.N They devote themselves to per
suits which, if honestly adhered to, sel
dom yield rich rewards.
Jefferson died comparatively. poor.
Indeed, if Congress had not purchated
his library, and given for it five times
its value, he would with difficulty have
kept the wolf from his door.
Madison saved money, and was com
paratively rich. To add to his fortune,
however, or rather that of his widow,
Congress purchased his manuscript pa
pers, and paid thirty thousand dollars
James Monroe, the sixth President ,
of the United States, died in New York,
so poor that his remains found a rest
ing place through the charity of one of
John Quincy Adams left some hund
red and fifty thousand dollars, the result
of industry, prudence and inheritance.
He was a man of method and economy.
Martin Van Buren died very rich.—
Throughout his political life, he studi
ously looked out for his own interest.
It is not believed that he ever spent
thirty shillings in politics. His party
shook the bush, and he caught the bird.
Daniel Webster sqnanderedsome mil
lions in his lifetime, the product of his
professional and political speculations.
He died, leaving his property to his
children, and his debts to his friends.
The former sold for less than twenty
thousand dollars; the latter exceeded
two hundred and fifty thousand.
Henry Clay left a very handsome es
tate. It probably exceeded one hund
red thousand dollars. He was a pru

James K. Polk left about one hund
red and fifty thousand dollars—fifty
thousand of which he saved from his
Presidency of four years.
John Tyler ieft fifty thousand dollars.
—Before he reached the Presidency he
was a bankrupt. In office he husbanded
Zachary Taylor left one hundred and
fifty thousand dollars.
Millard Fillmore is a wealthy man,
and keeps hie money in a very strong

Ex-President Pierce saved some fifty
thousand dollars from hie term of ear.
THE JUDGE AND HIS DEMIJOHN.-A
good joke is told of a Judge in New
Hampshire. He always kept a demi
john of good Jimaica in his private of.
fice for his particular friends. The
Judge had noticed for some time that
on Monday morning his Jamaica was
considerably lighter than he bad left it
on Saturday night. Another fact had
established itself in his mind. His son
Sam was missing from the parental pew
in church on Sundays. On Sunday af
ternoon Sam came in and went up stairs
very heavy, when the Judge put the
question pointedly to him :
"Sam, where have you been ?"
"To church, sir," was the prompt re
" What church, Sam 7"
"Second Methodist, air."
"Had a good sermon, Sam 7"
"Very powerful, sir; it quite stagger
"Ah I I see," said thq Judge, "quite
powerful l quite powerful l"
The next Sunday the son came home
rather earlier than usual, and apparent

His father hailed him with, "Well,
Sam, been to the "Second Methodist"
again to-day ?"
"Good sermon, my boy?"
"Fact was, father, that I couldn't get
in ; the, church was shut up, and a ticket
on the door,"
"Sorry, Sam ; keep going, you may
get good by it yet."
"Sam says that-upon going to the of

Trip to fount Vernon.
Washington, D. C., July 12, 1865
s Friend Baker :—As many of the citi
zens of Marietta have an investment in
Mount Vernon, and having had the
pleasure of visiting that place on Mon
day last (July 10th) and viewing for
the first time, the resting 'Race of the l i
Father of oar country, a place ever to
be revered by all who love their country,
and reverence the memory of him "who
was first in War, first in Peace, and first
in the hearts of his countrymen," I have
thought a slight sketch might be inter
esting to your readers, if you should see
proper to give it to them in my humble
way. There is a boat makes an excur
sion three times each week,--Mondays,
Wednesdays, and Fridays, from Wash
ington city to Mount -Vernon, at the
round fare of one dollar and fifty cents
the trip, admitting you to the grounds
included, (as I see that twenty-five cents
is charged to visitors for admittance, by
the committee). By permission of leave
for one day, I procured a ticket and
went on board the steamer "Wahassat,"
a very fine boat, and at 10 A. M., the
boat left the wharf, and being rather a
gloomy day, there was but e, small party
on board, which made it the more pleas
ant to your humble correspondent, as he
dislikes crowds. I found a number of
my acquaintances on board from my
boarding house, who were well provided
with Lunch. I made one of the party,
of course, for I was aware that a lunch
would be most desirable before we should
return. The boat touched at Alexan
dria, and proceeded down the Potomac
until we reached Fort Washington, when
we rounded to the wharf and took on
ten "Blue-Coats," as is customary on
those excursions, for reasons I shall ex
plain as I prodeed ; when we came in
sight of Mount Vernon, the bell on the
boat commenced to toll, informing all
on board that we were nearing the last
resting place of the Great Immortal
' Washington.) and the sound seemed more
sad than any bell 1 have ever heard toll;
soon the boat rounded and landed at the
whart-when all on board landed and
wended their way toward the Mansion,
there being a considerable rise of hill
to ascend and a dense forest in front,
the mansion is hid from view from the
bank of the Potomac, honrever, each
small party took up their line of march
toward the mansion, when' about half
way up, the vault in which the remains
of George Washington, and his consert,
Martha Washington, was before us t
when all the gentleinen, with uncovered
heads, approached the iron gates, to
look into the recess, where was hidden
all that now remains of the Hero of 16,
and his consort. There being a recess
in front of the vault to the right, there
Was what I shall term 'a marble coffin,
with the inscription of Gaul. George
Washington, & - c. On the left, one of
the same, with the inacription of Martha
Washington, &c.,; and in front the iron
gate. In front of the vault there is two
monuments erected in memory of some
of the Washington family; also a monu
ment to the right of the vault in memory
of the same ; after winding our way a
short distance, we came to the Mansion
and Out-Houses, all looking in good or
der, having been repaired lately; as we
were about to enter the mansion we
found one of the blue coats (taken on
board at Fort Washington) standing at
the door, who demanded us to exhibit
our tickets before we coral enter.
There are but three rooms and the Hall
open for visitors; and some few relics of
the family in each room ; in the ball I
noticed the key of the Hostile presented
by Gen. Lafayette, to Gen. Washing
ton. The family in charge of the
grounds I presume occupy the balance
of the house, as I saw it was tenanted.
On the back porch there was, an old col
ored man with quite a number of beauti
ful boquate for sale at 25 cents each,
gathered from the garden, and which he
readily disposed of t,o the parties, es
pecially to the ladies.
The Garden is beautiful and well laid
out, and here we found the blue coats all
around the garden and walks,, with an
eye on each visitor; There was no oc
casion to inquire why they were there,
for at every turn you could see a placard
in a conspicuous place with "Visitors
are requested not to break any shrub
bery or pluck any flowers ; &c," On one ,
tree I saw a notice, "$5 flhe break- 1
ing any branches from this tree, 63 , :,0.
der of the Committe"; it MS
ful tree with leaves something like' the
limey Locuet,, and.bad a flower of
some kind, but I saw no one on the
premises ho could give us any informs.
tion in regard to the' different °Wats
as you passed along. The ' Ito
accompanied us from Fort 3 0 N D 8 •
I presume was not any nub a handsome
with the history of the Tare all the Gov
*ere, In the garden tl;tintv,aue,
large boxes with stumps in`tnem, about
a foot above the ground, and I saw a
crowd around them, as I came up I
heard a gentleman remark that he sup
posed that one was the stump of the
CheVry Tree for which Washington's
Mother clirrected him for whittling, St c.,
when a boy, when one of oar party turn
ed around to the old contraband, who
was Belling boquets, and inquired what
those stumps were, when he enlightened
us by stating they were both stumps of
some Palm trees that had been growing
in the boxes and had died a natural
death, thus spoiling a good story, and
all interest was lost in the stumps.
The garden is beautiful, but could be
made much more so3by a little more
care in trimming the boxwood around
the walks, which has grown very large
and is preading 'too mach ; and by re.
moving the walls of an old house which
was destroyed by fire in 1835, (so said
our informant, the contraband, who ap
peared to be the only onelto give • any
information), I heard a gentleman ask
his age and he said he could not tell,
but supposed he was about 80. In pass
ing around I passed two (vaults in the
side of the hill, and I heard different
accounts of them as I passed along, one
said the first was the old Wine vault
but a lady contended it was the vault
in which George Washington was first
placed, but when we reached the second
vault the lady yielded and thought she
was. in error, as that was the vault.
There are two summer houses along the
slope of the hill. Alter spending two
hours on the grounds, and partaking of
the lunch, we started downward and
whilst on our way down the hill we came
across some of the finest Blackberries I
have seen, this season, and seeing no. no
tice in regard to picking Blackberries,
WO took our desert from the bushes and
it required no sugar or cream for they
were sweet enough without. In the
height of our enjoyment we heard the
steam whistle notifyingtis "time was up,"
and by the time we wire all on board,
the bell rang which warned all to be on
board, when the ten blue coats same on
board, when we tamed our course for
the city ; on our return we touched at
Fort Washington and left the blue coats
on shore, as they lead, we suppose, per
formed their duty, and we again touched
at Alexandria, and reached our board
ing house at four and a half P. M., just
in time for dinner, taken all in all, it
was a very pleasant trip. The distance
I believe is fourteen miles.
liar A mouse ranging about a brewery
happened to fall into a vat of beer, and
appealed to a cat to help him out.
The cat replied, "It is a foolish re
quest, for as soon as I get you cut I
shall eat you up."
The mouse replied, that fate would
be better than to be drowsed in beer.
The cat lifted him out, but the fumes
of the beer caused puss to sneeze, and
the mouse took refuge in his hole.
The cat called on the mouse to come
