Th7rovn ARray -Thursday one hundred gallons
(of the cool sad refresbing soup, upon which our
nation's wards live and grow tat, were thrown
away by the managers of the bureau. The strange
fact that soup goes a begging il a mystery to some
people, but not to us. 'he negroes who cam
l1om Curi's itck, and elsewhere along the Jame
river. from Chesterfield and arbytown. brought
neither soop nor rations w tbea when ty
came to register last week Boap wap lkMiece
natural substitute for the fare of the " Ma
Dory," and the burea terrapin stew, g b,
ochre, etc.. almost made them swallow lhir
tougues. The consequence was that the latep'
guests compelled the bureau to increase thotf ap
ply. But lo! the wards who stopped pl(Mi to
come here to register when they had no right to
do so, lelt for tt:eir country homes and the soup
engineer forgot to OiinniJbh his ingredients by ose
u-ole. which tn 15 belongod to " GConcil Cham

r.e hundred gallons of choc late colored truck
thrown away. Why not bottle it and sead it to
tlem in their country humes, where they have not
utually this particuiar kind of relish? When
they return to Richmond to vote they will, of
co(urse, return many thanks to the ofBoers
of the soup cauldron for so signal a mark of

bered, says the Toronto Telegraph, that some
years ago, when Mr. Chas. Browne, better known
as Artenus Waid, visited Toronto, he took a
fancy to a young lad named George Stephenson,
a bell boy at the Queen's Hotel, and so strong a
likn dlid be take to the youoL that he offered to
make him his valet, to accompany him on his lkeo
t ring tours throughout the United States and
(reat Britain. Stephenson acceded to his re
quest, and set off with Artemru to Erie, Pennayl
n nis, and from thence to New York. Boto. eto.,
and tically to Europe. Hr remalned with Mr.
B owne till the day of his death, and accompanied
te remami back to America, after which the
youth re'urbcd to his mother. who lives in Uni
Sversity street, in this city. By the will of Mr.
Browne, Stephenson was left $2000, to be paid
him when he arrived at the age of twenty-one,
provision .!so being made fur three years' edula
tion at Harvard College, and also a couple of
}ears in a printing cftihe. in which lhtter place he
was " to learn how little he really did know."
When St-phenson returned to this city, he did not
se-m to care lor carrying out the benevolent in
ti niouns ci the good hearted Artemos, but hired
'nwelf again as bell boy In the Queen's Hotel,
wbh ch place he occupies at the present time..
Tnu PrEACiEs.-A cuntryman brought from
the city live peaches, the . nest that ever were
, cen. But his children saw this fruit for the first
time. Therefore they wondered and rej3lced in
th' pretty peaches wnth their red chteks and deli
cate down. The lather then divided them among
his four boyr, and have one to th:ror mother.
In the eteniug, when the cnildren went to their
sleeping chamber, the father a-ked:
'" ell, bow did the pretty peaches taste?"
" finely, deir father," sidl the oldest. " It is
a heauitlu1 truit-so tartish and delinrte in taste.
I have carefully k, pt the stone, and I will raise
tie a tree 1rl1 it.'
" Brav." raid the father, "that is providing

'" ell," said the fa'hlr, " viy have not acted
very wisely, but natura'ly. and in a child's mano
ner. bor wisdom thze is yet room iu the course
of your life.'
Ihenu the second son began: ' I hunted up the
stontc which my little niither threw away, and
cr.acked ,t. 'Ihere waa a seed in it that tasted as
a nut. But my pe ch I suld for enough, when I
go to the Llty, tat I can probablly buy twelve."
'Thi lLher shotk his head and raid:
"' That is wise enuagh, but cbhfd like and natural
it wus not. Heaven guard you that you do not
beer me a rmerchant."
' ALtI yu, ULEdluund ? " asked the father.
Felt-poiesed and lrank. Edmund replied: " I
carr:ei n.y peach to our neighoor George, who
wkss ik ,f a fever. Ha woul not take it; then
I laid it upon his bed, and came away."
" H en, ,' said the father, " who has hade the
best use of his peach? "
all three exclaimed, " Brother Edmund!"
