gir A poor farmer of St. Anne de la
Pocatierre, Canada, who bad heard that
a relative of his father in Europe had
died, leaving a large fortune, add who
had sent - papers to claim his share of
the inheritance, received the. other day
from - Frankfort a draft ou the British
North American Bank for 1109,500 as a
firstinstahnent. Elated with joy, he had
promised to pay off the debt of .the par
ish church and to build a convent at his
own expense. He came to Quebec with
the`notary of the parish, and in company
with many friends, to draw the rri
from the bank : , when the draft was dis
covered to have no value.
Sr At the recent trial of rifles at
Wimbledon, England, the prize offered
for the beet breech-loader, was won by
an Enfield rifle converted on the plan of
Colonel Berdan, of this country. This
musket was fired one,handred times in
five and, a. half minutes, and this great
rapidity was attained after it had become
foul. Three hundred rounds were pre
viously fired for the purpose' of fouling
it, and it was also rusted in salt and wa
ter, and rolled in fine sand, and after
this bad treatment it still won
ll the prize
as the best breech loader of the many
offered. The rapidity attained by this
arm is more than double that of the
Prussian needle gun.

A Sztitablq Apo l ogy.
It is not often that we find hasty
people willing to make the'ameride; hoz
°reale, as was the individual mentioned
in the following anaodOte. A: phant
om regard for the 'truth is highly to be
commended, and below we find' a eke
sense of hdnor on one sido, with :et still
nicer nicety oil the other. '
A mari 'said 'of a virago with a loud,
masculine voice : ' ° Confound that 'wow.
an's throttle I her voice will reach the
fifth story of my hones."
The woman, bearing of the remark, in-
sisted that her husbitfid should call on
the man and demand either a refraction
or an apology, and if the, man would
neither, the husband was to ,chastise
Husband.—" Sir, I am informed that
you say my voice is ao loud and
masculine it will reach the fifth .story of
any Imilding . Did you or did. you not .

Man.-- Well, my dear sir, I caret say
positivsly, I.might, upon the impulse of
the moment, and rather think I did say
five stories. Perhaps it is an exaggera
tion. It is-pushing the thing pretty
strong,-I admit. am willing, sir, now
that I am cooler, to take off - one Story,
but not another. brick.
" Well," said the. other " that alters
the ease, but I should not have stood

DELICACY.—About every other feature
which adorns the female character, deli-,
cacy stands foremost within the prov
ince of good taste. Not that delicacy
which is perpetually in quest of some-
thing to be ashamed of, which makes a
merit, of a blush, and simpers at the
false construction its own ingenuity has
put upon an innocent remark:; this spa
flans kind of as far removed
from good taste as from good-feeling and
good sense; put • that high minded deli
cacy which maintains its pure and un
deviatitig walk alike amongst women, as
in the society of men; which shrinks
from no necessary duty, and can speak
when required, with seriousness and
kindness, of things at which it would be
ashamed indeed to smile or blush. This
is the delicacy which - forms ad important
a part of•good taste that where -it does
not eiist - as a natural iustinot, it is
taught-as the first principle of good man
ners, and considered as - the' universal
passport of good society. •
ing are things pleasant to see: A. work
ing' man reading the'newspapers r a real
lady who can carry a parcel ; a father at
a place of amusement with his children ;
a young man with a' clear eye, and a
fresh, virtuous, nohackneyed face ; a
shop girl neatly dressed, and without
sham ornamentation:c a man of business
going home at night with a coquet for
his wife ; a shop man civil to; and - pa
tient with, a poor woman, who, with a
baby 'moss her arm, ventures to buy a
shilling article ; a dressmaker who .is
scientific enough to pirfect a "fit," and
yet leave your breathing apparatus in
christian working condition; a - milliner
who didn't come from Paris; a jolly dq
mastic who " likes the family ;" a bride
with. her pet small house ; a young , fath

Gettysburg in 1863; and met a Southern
delegate who was very anxious to walk
arm-in-arm with me; and When 'we sep

quietly made, but:euggested a. world of

A WATERFALL.—Waterfalls are very

A P=ly Dog Story.
When the war in -Italy jommenced,
the Zouaves embarked for Genoa; but
as they were going on board the ship,
they saw a formal order forbidding the
entrance of all dogs upon the vessel.
As they were very much attached to
their doge, they were stricken with
grief. It was not easy to deceive the
sharp look out kept by the intendant,
for every soldier advanced along the
narrow,gangway one by one, as their
names were called. Necessity is the
mother of invention. The drummers
unscrewed their drums, and the best
dogs of the regiment were eJnceitled ic r
the drnms which were screwed up again.
When regiments embark no music is
played, but on this occasion the Colonel
determined there should be music. Re
- ordered the trumpets and drums to take
the head of the column and to play a
lively tune. The face of the drummers
—every one-of-whom had a dog in his
drum,—may be conceived. The trumpets
sounded,;,the drums were silent. The
Colonel got angry and bawled to know
why the drums did not beat. The mo
ment the drums began to beat innumer
able' dogs began to howl and bay, to the
aitoriishinent of everybody but th - e Zott
ayes, Everybody looked right, left,
backward and rrontward--no signs of 'a
dog anywhere ; and yet, the more the
drummers beat the more the dogs howl
ed; At last a spaniel fell out of a drum,
rolled over and over on the ground, got
up and took to his heels, howling louder
than ever. Roars of laughter greeted
this explanation of mysterious howls.
The intendant ordered the drummers to
advance on board one by one, and to
roll the drum as he came. If a barking
was heard the drum was unscrewed, and
the dog put ashore. Only one dog got
aboard this was Toaton, who kept quiet
through all the rolling. It need not be
said that tile Third &waves adore Ton

A. few days ago an Irishman left Cop
