The Pic-ie at .oumight's.
Favored with an invitation, we of course went
to see if the old tin hospitality as}d capability
.bf the g6od fulks of that section had stagnated,
under the pressure of pist events. The sequel
will show. We f.urnd many disunguihed town
ers already there, who were likewise ainong -the
happily invited. Making a late start, and un
fortunately alone, over a sandy road, with a heMn
ing, scorebing sun over cad, it can hardly be ea
pected of us to say that the ride was charming,
the scenery fineror that the little birds tittercd
and snug frOm their leajperces, as we ambled
alon- ; no none of that, riot a note was beard,
scarcely a breath of breeze stirred the listless.
leaves, and in spite of the romance which might
be made of it',e absolutely perspired fron the
toil and fatigu-e. Those who got away earlier,
in the cool freshness of the morning, the ,;oung
er and more enthusiastic, they enjoyed the. ro
mance, the soft talk, &c., not we. But the the
good part which was ahead, awaited all, alike,
and it was enjoyed with a zest seldom or never
seen. Arriving at the ferry, the scene which
burst upon the vision was encEanting, and looked
like a fairy picture ;, on the opposite shore, the
spot-selected fc4- tl frolic, could be seen hun.
dreds of the fairer portion of creatiol ; grouped
about, with % due proportion of the 'lords,' in
.agrecable sociability, some sitting, some prome
::ding, while all were chatting and laughing in
happiest mcasre. The ridej the sun, fatigue,
etc., were all forgotten at he first gaze. Anxious
for a nearer view, the flat was taken, and quick
ly transpoh ted us to the other side. Distance 'tis
said lends tnchar.tnent to tlie view, but in this
case a nearer observation only cnhanccd the
beauties, a more charnitg collection of beauty,
grace and wit it were dif ieult to -find any
where. Unfortunately having -but a very .imited
acquaintance among the "beauty" which was a
source of deep regret, we singled out our old
friend hev. Marion, for a stag stroll, - and loco-.
moted from point to paint of attraction, till by a
most singular chance we found ourselves r uhn in
to by the tables, which lud already began to
grtoan u der their weight of savory substnntiols.
Feeling a curiosity to ascertaiu the length of the
principal table, M. And myself took an- accurate
ir v ie, and came to the conclusion that
it was "several-tcen" feet long. Satisfied us to
length and capacity, thethought obtruded itself,
would we get a good place in the great picture,
and be filled Wvith a fullness. Just then one of
our lady friends, in the pleasantest manner, sug
gested there %r;s carving to be done. "A wink's
as good as a blink to a blind horse," so at it .we
we-t, "tooth and tecethail;" or rather, with fingers
and knife, their being no forks, and so-,u a mat=
ton and shoat was made mince meat of. . Done
to a charm, crisp, savory ind juicy, we had to
taste to be satisfied as to proper -seasonihg. All
right there., We cannot for;_ct a lamntable ac
cident which here befell-; taking advantage of a
carver's privilege, to reserve tit-bits to himself,
we quisly disjoin:ed a most delicious looking
tail from the mutton, and quity placed it away
for private picking, but alas, a miserable purloin
er of small things appropriat.d it to himself, and
our beloved tail "went up," gone, gone. -Deeply,
ensibly we fet its loss, and'cocld have wept. A
nunmber of unsaid bad things were thouight of the
rogue, bad luck to him. Tables dressed, proven
der served, the ladies-first in all that is good,
and in the hearts of the gentlemen-were noti
ficd that al[ ' as in readiness for -them. As so.on
as their delicate appetites were satisfied, the gen-.
temen -were called, and then came the onslaught;
fierce, hot, and terriblo wa.s the assaai, and a
claance soon made. We notic&d the perfoir
ances of. seven-d in' the ''hash" line,, who went it.
withf a perfect loos'eness, a total disregard for all
moral restraint, but they wcre not to be much
blamed, for it was really, the best hash ever
h'shed. The ti ird in course was the.faney table.
for the ladies, upon w hich was everything pleas
ing to m eye and pleasant to the taste. Stand
ig ou1tside of which we were satisfied-sim7ply to
look on, at the .fair performer.s and not indu!ge
ourself further, Ist a good ladiy,however',i!lsisted
oni our taking a slice~ of fine melon and some cake.
With this ended the. active progiarame of the
pie-nic and truly it was creditable to those who
got it up and gave it their attention. Never was
one more jye,and with a beautiful day too,
everything went offrin the most agreeable man
nr. Not being one of the unfortunates, we'had
aluost forgotten to mention the shower of rain
which came on, as an aftevpiece, to disperse the
happy pic-nickers. Dresses draggling, stareb
wshed out, with the ladies, diss6lving papercol
las of the gentlemen, soiled boots, mud, etc.,
formed a picture quite out of kyeping with that
of the morninug Longill the pic:nic at Bouk

a young New York- clergyaitn was "ristica

thousand dollars. He was Induced by a friend
to purchase a few railway shares in WaWT

was again. lucky ; fin.lly touched the gold

not met with individuals whose faces would
be a passport to any society, and whose man
