A HINT FOR THE CLERCY.
This is a very useful hint for our
present orators of all description. It
is related that a Yankee chemist
named Mitchell leccntly stepped into
n Boston sale-room and purchased a
box as to the contents of which he
was totally ignorant. When he
burst up the lid he found he had
suddenly become the possessor of
2000 manuscript sermons that had
formerly been the property of a
clergyman. It need scarcely be said
that he then cursed the parson in his
own sinful style back as far as the
57th generation ; for he fondly hoped
he had scooped a box of stolen jew
ellery. .Our orators needn't copy
any of that part of the affair, of
course; but here's where the hint
fits in. The clergyman had written
along the margin of his pages such
suggestions to himself as the fol
lowing "Deliver this passage in
solemn tones;" "Scornful smile
after the word 'never;' " "Pause
long enough to count twenty-five
after this passage;" "Close Bible
with violent slam after this point"
"Sarcastic wave of hand;" "Rapid
gesture," &c. I have heard it said
that the clergyman was Cook; but
that can't be' coricct, for Joseph
couldn't raise a "scornful smile"
any more than the ceiling could.
But the idea is good for all that.
THE LAST FLAC.
"Talk about my war record" said
an Arkansas orator at a political
meeting: " my war record is a part
of the State's history. Why, gentle
men, I carried the last Confedeiate
Hag through town."
"Yes," replied a bystander, "for
I was here at the time."
"Thank you for your fortunate
recollection," gratefully exclaimed
the orator. "It is pleasant to know
that there still live some men who
move aside envy and testify to the
courage of their fellow-beings. As
I say, gentlemen, my war record is
a part of the State's history, for the
gentleman here will tell you that I
carried the last Confederate Hag
through this town."
"That's a fact," said the man
who had witnessed the performance.
"He carried the last Confederate
flag through this town, and he car
ried it so blamed fast you couldn't
lmvc told whether it was a Union
Jack or a snroll-pox warning."
Imitation being popularly consi
dered the sincerest form of flattery
the manes of the ill-fated Captain
Webb should be appeased by the
action of the late Mr. Murphy,
butcher, of Preston, who made a bet
that lie would swim across the River
Kibble ut its most dangerous point.
On entering the water, in the pte
bencc of several people, he ex
cl dmed, "I'm acting Captaiu
Webb." The body, says the his
torian, somewhat abruptly, was
afterwards recovered with grap
