My Wife masl I.
Oh dtr, I wish I wer rich !"
This remark wu extracted from my wife (as an ob-
anaate molar might be extracted by a dentist) by the
erntemplation of a large opening in the toe of little
Persy's stocking, which she had been trying in Tain
to deriM some mode of closing, without destroying
the symmetry of the garment, while a pile of similar
articles, of Tarioos sixes and patterns, lay at her elbow,
as much in need of mending as an old rake's habits.
There they lay, seren pairs of little stockings, while
their seren daily occupants were snngly snoozing in
bed, forgetful of the many weary stitches their little
naa caasea; ana all aronnl, on tables and chairs,
wae scattered a promiacaoos assortment of juvenile
apronsjuod dresses, jackets and breeches, each one
bearing its owner's mark, in the shape of rips and
. Tents. ,
. M I wish I were rich !" repeated my wife.
There was a strength and heartiness in the tone
and manner which left no doubt of ber sincerity, and
in an instant my mind went back some twenty years,
to the time when we had been rich rich in our joung
lore, rich in oar mutual dependence', and rich in the
bright hopes which not only gilded but fairly plated
the future all oxer with twenty-carat plate at least
a together we looked down the lonz vist of cominir
years, fair flowers of joy aroond our feet, ripe fruits
of happiness over our heads, the richest of all riches,
contentment in oar hearts, and flour at only five dol
lars per barrel.
Almost twenty years ago those soft hazel eyes that
now beam with tender, matronly love, first told the
tory of that love wbieh those rosy lips (their bloom
has not yet faded) confirmed; and that fair, round
fcoe, that baa grown fairer and rounder year by year,
first lay npon my breast in maiden trustfulness.
We did not fall in love, nor walk into it, nor glide
into it, bat we took to it by instinct as ducks take to
water, and we were married, with about as definite
an idea of the modes and means of meeting our cur
rent expenses as a raw Irishman has of Egyptian
hieroglyphics, or a charcoal peddler of honesty.
There most be a e-ial Providence which watches
orer tools and yonn mam el people.
In point of wordly possessions we commenced with
nothing, and hare had it CTer since; for, what with
the increased expense of living, and our success in
adding to the census returns, eich year finds us as fir
from the possession of a respectable competency as its
nrertiWiaur. Financially we hare' scrambled along
In a helter-skelter way, tumbling into little puddles
of debt from time to time, with now and then a long
interval of exemption, to be followed by a new tum
ble and a new scramble for safety. Until now, on
this cold Saturday night in January, my wife and I
t!eoxily by our cheerful fire, she with a load of un
nsmding and to-be-mended stockings en her mind,
and I, edensibly reading, trying to solve the great
problem of the relation between supply and demand;
at least, so far as to make mr own weekly supplies
eorer the weekly demands of wife, children, the gro
cer, and the- landlord. And so I sit, buried in
thought, now brghtened by remembrances of early
happiness, and now darkened by shales of unpaid
January bills, which load my desk, making the de
saand for the great stap'e, money, far exceed the sup
ply, thereby, according to our best political econo
mists, enhancing its ralue.
. Meantime my wife, still laboring under the weight
of the stockings, says, for the third time, with in
creased fervor and a slight degree of asperity, as
though demanding a reply,
. Oh dear ! dear ! I wish I were rich."
Riches, my lore, take to themselres wings and
fly away," I replied, with the sir of one who had seen
myriads of tender young dollars put on their pin
feathers, become fully fiedged, and soar away to un
known regions like a flock of wild gese, leaving not
even the smell of money behind.
2 Well, if they do, they must go to roost somewhere,
and I don't see why some of them can't settle here as
well as elsewhere." said my wife, as she commenced
on a rreeh stocking; and then added, with a slight
dash of acidity, "There's no danger of our riches fly
ing away !"
" So, my dear, the wealth of loving hearts, of un
stained consciences, and contented dispositions is a
permanent investment, and not at all prone to aerial
flights. These are your only true riches. With these,
yen are richer than Crcesus ; without them, poor in
deed." That's all rery well, bot that kind of property
don't constitute legal tender. Ton can't pay the gro
cer with consciences and disposition, however pure
and contented. They don't go half so far as prom
ises, fr I've known you to make them last a year.
Bat speaking of the grocer reminds me that I thought
I saw the bottom of the near barrel this morning."
Now I knew in an instant that there wasn't flour
enongh in that barrel to make a homecepathic biscuit,
for I ha 1 had a bint of its condition the day before,
fn the" shape of an inquiry front my wifeV What is
flour worth now ? expressed in a tone intended to
indicate that she had no more interest in the matter
than she bad in the number of statute miles between
the earth and the moon.. i
,l is s pleasant little fiction of herr, that a delicate
hint, in relation to the consumptive economy, falls
r lightly upon the ear of the moneyless than the
; ind simple, though appalling sentiment, " The
w-r barrel is empty;" and she will resort to all
manner of . expedients for . bringing the case to my
mind rather than state it in plain English- In fact,
Ihave sometimes thought of teaching her to say jt in
Spanish, and thus remove a littM of its harshness;
hot aa she had no aptness for any tongue, except her
own, I hare abandoned the idea.
The purchase of a barrel of flour is an event in our
household economy not to be treated lightly. It re
quires preparation and consideration. In the first
place, a certain sum of money is to be provided to
meet the emergency, for whatever latitude the grocer
may allow in minor matters, when you talk to him of
near yoa mast produce the quid pro quo, or there is
The next point to be decided is the selection of the
braod." -This leads to friendly interchange of
views between the beads of the home department,
which always results in my being commissioned to
nurchase the highest priced article in the market,
and a caution to avoid ail attempts at false economy
bf investing in a cheaper quality. In ray younger
days, I once made a purchase or a barrel of second
quality (s the grocer called it.) to see if my wife
woakl know the difference; and I believe I have had
the biscuit that were made from it thrown at me ever

meat, from which, in my own opinion, I always gain
the advantage though I must confess that I am
occasionally overborne by a torrent of words, especi
ally when some friendly neighbor espouses my wife's
Kae ot the question. In each eases 1 beat a nasty
retreatand watch my opportunity for a new attack
npon the poeit'on of the enemy under more favorable
My wife detests flounces, (she is too stout to wear
them,) has no hankering after moire antique,
and only knows of "Honiton" by having seen it
mentioned in our daily paper. To be sure she doesn't
believe all the criticism npon the fashions which she
sees in that paper, and she even goes so far as to say
that she has no idea that the editor himself believes
them. I think she is hardly just to the editor a
rery clever fellow by-the-way, who never meddles
with any thing but politics, except Church matters,
ladies dresses, and fish and who never gets into
trouble as long as he sticks to politics and fish.
But to return to the black silk dress. Some years
ago (I don't care to remember how many,) under the
influence of an excess of affection and a delusion in
regard to my financial prospects, I had made a rash
promise to purchase such an article for her especial
use and adornment; but had coupled the promise
with the Important proviso, " some time." JFe had
previously canvassed the relative merits of calicoes,
cashmeres, silk and satins, and had decided that one
good silk dress was worth half a dozen of any of the
others, not only for its present purpose but as being
more available in its later stages for the decoration
of the young scions of our house, and a sly hint was
thrown out that a spare ' breadth" out of the skirt
might be rery useful in refacing any coat of mine
that might 'stand in need of that operation. The
some time," before alluded to has not yet arrived,
and from present appearances it is as far off as when
the promise was made. Still, it lingers in my wife's
memory, and she occasionally brings it to my mind
among, I fear, many other unfulfilled promises.
" In regard to the dress, you may depend upon
having it "some time," but the treasures of which I
was speaking are not exactly available for that pur
pose at present, I replied ; but I can easily convince
you that we are possessed of them. Are there not
seven rosy-cheeked cherubs (at least you call them
so when they are not in mischief.) now sleeping in
happy unconsciousness of money and its attendant
evils, each one of them worth its weight in gold ?
I've heard you say so many a time. Now at a
moderate estimate they will average fifty pounds
apiece. Even California gold is worth two hundred
dollars a pound. So we have three hundred and fifty
, pounds of cherubs at two hundred dollars a pound,
which, according to' simple multiplication, makes
seventy thousand dollars' worth of those little heaven
ly bodies alone."
Oh ! but it isn't nonsense. There it is, figured
accorling to your own estimate, and a very pretty
little sum it makes to begin the world with. Now,
my dear, what is my love."
This was a poser. My wife looked up in a haze of
blank astonishment as her mind grasped the idea,
and I tremblel for fear she might say nothing,"
and thus overturn the whole ground work of my
theory. Bat as soon as she had swallowed the idea
and mentally digested it, she replied,
Why don t you ask me what the air is worth ?
for I could dispense with one as well as the other."
I thanked my wife fir the compliment, and con
gratulated myself that she had drawn no worse com
parison between my lore and theair; and continued,
" Well, t'len, what do you consider the air worth ?"
I shan't answer any such foolish question ; for, if
you go on with your calculations you'll make us out
"That's what I intend to do; and I think I am
safe in putting down the love at a hundred thousand.
Then, there is my honor, which is worth at least as
much as the lore"
" I're no doubt of it," intermpted my wife
For you wouldn't value the one without the
other. So there you hare the sum total of three items
alone cherubs, seventy thousand; love, a hundred
thousand; and honor as much more, making the
snng sum of more than a quarter of a million of dol
lars, to say nothing of other items that rmpht be
mentioned, and which would perhaps double the
amount, besides cash on hand amounting to one dol
lar and seventeen cents."
I paused here for my wife to appreciate the full
force of my reasoning, (she is a little slow at figures.)
and when she had time to turn the whole subject in
her mind, I asked,
" What have you to say to that ?"
AH I have to say to that," replied my wife, " is,
that I wouldn't advise you to set up a carriage on
the strength of your property. And if I thought we
were worth a quarter of that sum, I wouldn't mend
such a looking stocking at this." Saying which, she
held up the stocking of our eldest girl, minus the
beel and two-thirds of the toe, with a large rent near
the top of the leg.
And then look at that, and that, and that," she
continued, as she successively presented for inspection
the various articles which constitute the juvenile
wardrobe; and I most confess that, seen throngh that
medium, my imposing array of figures seemed scarce
ly large enough to fill one of the smallest rents
among the multitude. Still I fondly hoped that my
calculations had a tendency to raise my wife's spirits,
and I was unwilling that she should sink back into
that slough of darning-needles and yarn. So I con
tinned the subject
Clothes, my dear, especially in the ease of chil
dren, are a mere matter of form, a blind adherence
to the customs of society. If it cost more to wear
shreds and patches than whole garments if rents
and rips could be rendered fashionable, all the world
would be out at elbows. But though society turns
up its nose at last year's fashions though love looks
askance at a seedy lover, and even the Church puts
its ban on the threadbare coat, you and I can jog on
our way regardless of frowns and favors, conscious of
that hidden treasure which gilds and brightens our
"And then, again, compare our condition with
that of our first parents, when they had notice to
quit ' from the Great Landlord, and first commenced
housekeeping on their own account. Their wardrobe
was extremely limited, and I've no doubt Eve would
have been very thankful for a nine-penny calico, and
Adam would not have scorned good satinet, even
though the cut of the garments had been a few
months old. For however rural a fig-leaf suit might
appear, it is not exactly adapted for general use,
especially with the thermometer at zero. And I
don't think that a lady of yonr weight in the com
munity would appear to advantage in that primitive
style of dress."
" Perseverance !"
exclaimed my wife, as she col
ored with indignation at the idea, ami laid down the
last of the stockings, preparatory to seeking her
She never calls me " Perseverance, except when
she is astonished or indignant; and I knew by the
tone of her voice that it would be useless to pursue
the subject at present. So, winding up my argument
and the little wooden clock that graces our m.mtle,
I addressed myself to slumber, while that murmured
aspiration floated on the midnight air from my wife's
" Oh dear ! I wish I were rich !"

The Panama Rnil-Uad Company takes this method
of informing those interewiod in the Whaling busi
ness, of the a.lrantacs oftrrcd by the Railroad
across the Isthmus of Panama, tor the shipment of
Oil from the Picine to the I'nited States, and for sending out
fits and snpplk-s from th United States to Panama..
The Railroad has Korn In regular and suTessful operation for
more than two years, and Its cajmoity for tle trans)ortauon of
every dt-acription of nierrhnndiSH, including Oil, Provisions, &c,
has been fully tcsUM. Th attention f several Captains of
whalmhlps has recently been turned to the subject of shipping
their oil from Panama to New York during the present season,
and the Panama Rail-Road Company has made arrangements
to afford every facility which may be required for the accom
plishment of this imp-rttaiit object. A P3or, 450 feet lone, has
been built in the bay of Panama, to the end of which Frlvrht
Cars are run to receive curgocs from liirhters or vessels lying
alongside, and deliver the same alonraiile of vessels at Aspin
wall. Ye.-sels of from 200 to .'500 tons can lie at the Pier with
safety, grounding in the rand nt low water.
The vessels to and from Aspinwall are fast-sailing bries, be
longing to the Raii-Road Company, and the Company is pre
pared to receive oil a. ranama ami lcurer it in ew nru
under through Bill mf fndinv at the rate of seven
cents per gallon, if received at the Pier, and eight cents per inil
Inn if received in the harbor from ship's tackles, charging for
the capacity of the casks, without allowing for wantage. For
whalelione, one and one-half cents per pound. This charge
covers every expense from Panama to New York, in case
the oil is sent through the Superintendent or Commercial Agent
of the Panama Rail-Road Company, insurance excepted. The
freights may be mada payable on the Isthmus or in New York
at the option of tlie shipier.
The vessels of the Company sail remilarly semi-monthly, and
the average passages to and from Aspinwail are about twenty to
twenty-five days. The time occupied in crossing the Ishmus is
four hours. Oil, during its transit across the Isthmus, will he
covered with canvas, or conveyed in covered cars, and owners
may be assured that every care will be taken to prevent leakatre.
Several cargoes have already been conveyed to New York with
out the slightest loss.
Oil or other goods consigned for transportation to the Super
intendent or the Panama Kail-Road Company, or to YV illiam
Xrlasi, Commercial A (rent of the Company at Panama, will
be received and forwarded with the greatest despatch.
