firm already established, who offer advice for stated

At noon enters a young man with a roll of manu
script, lie timidly salutes Mr. 151 ant, and tens him
be was about to send bis manuscript to an editor for
publication, but had concluded to consult their firm
belcre venturing to do so. ife Hands his production
to 3Ir. Blunt, who reads very attentively for an hour,
eoiualtinz his library very frequently. At last he
looks np over hi spectacles and asks : Have you
.Kan dollars about you ?'" and having received his fee
he t roceeds : " Young man, you come hereto be told
tbe troth. You have shown me a parcel of staff
vh:h you ssy you intend to publish. It is my can
did opinion that you had better put it in the fire.
You r command of language is none of tbe best : your
ehoisa of topics is injudicious; your classical allusions
are ill-tuned; your style is strained; your ettorts at
hoir.cr are mere shams; and you have not learned to
confine your effusions within anything like a reasona-
- ble compass. Kemember. sir. 1 mean no offence, bat
you have paid me for telling you the truth, and I
hope you will value and act upon it accordingly.
The young aspirant departs without his ten dollars,
but wiser if a sadder man.
Next comes a niaa who thinks he has a good law-
r atari on bis neighbor, and desires to consult Keen,
Short & xtlant as to tbe propriety of commencing
- legal proceedings. . He explains the ease and shows
theti how he hopes to win. Tbey listen patiently,
. but admonish him from time to time to speak the
troth if be wants a truthful opinion. He concludes
'. his- tripTication. pays twenty dollars, and receives
...front Blunt the following opinion : -
; DtAB Si We hare carefully considered your
' ease Your design is to swindle your neighbor. We
wthink a smart lawyer would enable you to succeed.
. yet yon win ba foolish in prosecuting the attempt.
Oo home, invite your neighbor to dinner, give up the
paper you bold against him, and never again think
of re bbiog him of what is justly his because you have
ah apparent legal right on your side. " Hoping for
rumer patronage irvtn you, we remain your obedient
servants, Keex, short & BttsT.'
v.- A a hoar afterwards an application is made by
yootig Highf-MUtm Sonorous, a politician in embryo,
who desires to take advice on the propriety of his ac
, oept ng an office that has been tendered to him by his
. put. He goes over the matter with as much truth
. . l-us as repeated hints from toe counsellors can
command, and is dismissed to the parlor while the
meabars of tbe firm consult. In a few minutes
eervtnt asks Mr. Sonorous for twenty dollars, which
beinj paid, he presents the following note :
Dcab Si: You have been educated for business
.at some expense. ' Your father evidently designed

Wt can fancy hundreds of other eases in which the

Wnra Wosxs Mtranea. There is no better story
ever read illustrating the effects of drunkenness, than
the following we have found in the Boston Saturday
Evening Gazette. It is decidedly Frenchy, and may
be equally as true. We hope all who are in the habit
of getting V over the bay" will read it, and pront Dy
the lesson; at any rate, we hope that when they do
get so, they will not find any' officious friend to take
them up four stories and put them to bed.
.Will you read a sad story of inebriation ? Not of
a poetic inebriation does it treat, one of those sad and
sicthinjr ones, not one of the imagination which has
emptied its glass to the dregs, one which keeps even
in its height the name of tbe loved one a secret. No,
it treats simply of a worthy musician of tbe orchestra
of a theater on tbe boulevards. This fine fellc
having toasted Bacchus for a considerable period of
time, returned home at two in the 'morning, stag
gering and sineine. Arrived at his door, he finds a
drunken man on his threshold. He interests himself
in his fellow sinner.
Come, my good man, says he, " you can't stop
here. ' My bed is large I offer you my hospital
So savin tr. he raises the man who is drunker than
' him. and can't sustain himself. Our musician, half
poshing him, half carrying him, reaches at last the
fourth story; he opens his door puts him in his cnam
ber. draws the curtains, and puts him in the bed.
" Tranquil then as to the condition of his new friend
he savs to himself: "It's shameful, my boy. Here's
a fellow drunker than you are. It ouzht not to be.
I repeat, it ought not to be. And it shan't be," -
And reasoning thns he leaves his room and going
through the street stumbles against a man stretched
on tbe ground. It is another drunken man, drunker
than the first. "
He goes to raise him bat he is so drank that it is
impossible. By great efforts, however, he finally gets
him np and carries him to his room, lie places him
on his bed, then goes out for something to drink,
with the laudable intention of being as drank as his
At his door he finds a third drunken man.
What's this ?" savs he. "Another one! There'll
be three in my bed. No matter they can settle it
He takes the third drunkard on bis hack, carries
him to his chamber and throws him on his bed, then,
worn by faticue. falls on the arm chair and goes to
Presently day begins to dawn. A fresh breeze
awakes our musician. He looks around. His bed is
empty and the window open.
" How !" said he, " have they gone without say

He rises and looking out of the window sees a man

The Panama Rail-Road Company takes this method
of informing those interested in the Whaling busi
ness, of tha advantages offered by the Railroad
a'nrosa the Isthmus f Panama, for tbe shipment of
Oil from the Pacific ta the I'nited States, and for sending out
fits and supplies from the I'nited States to Panama.
Tbe Kailroad has been in regular and successful oneratioo for
mar than two years, and its capacity for the transunrtauon of
every description of merchandise, including (HI, Provisions, Ac,

whalcships has recently been turned to the subject of shipping
their oil frra Panama to New York during tbe present season.
and the Panama Rafl-Rnad Company has made arransemcnts
to afford every facility which may be required for the accom
plishment of this important object. A Pier, 450 feet long, has
been built in tne nay of Panama, to tbe end of which Freight
Cars are run to receive cargoes from lighters or vessels lvinc
alongside, and deliver the same slonsside of vessels at Aspin
wmO. Ye Is of from 200 to 300 tons can lie at the Pier with
safety, grounding in the mud at low water.
The vessels to and irom asptnwaii are last -sailing brigs, be

pared to receive oil at Panama and deliver It in .New York,
under IBiratauKti Bslla sf stadias; alkthe rate of seven
Ber anlloo. if received at the Pier, and eight cents per sal-
Ion if received in the harbor from ship's tackles, charging for
toe capacity of the casks, without allowing for wantage. For
whalebone, one and one-half cents per pound. This charge
covers every expense from Panama to sev iork. in case
the oil Is sent through the Superintendent or Commercial Agent
of the Panama Rail-Road Company, insurance excepted. The'
freights may be made payable on the Isthmus or in New York
at the option of the shipper.
