We must not omit one repulsive feature, which
unhappily is never wanting in the poor man's Sat
urday night market. You can scarcely stand a
minute in any part of it w ithout recognizing its
disgraceful presence. We allude to the multifarious
trade in impostures of nil sorts, which is carried
on during tho few hours preceding midnight.
wherever tho poor and tho tailoring classes nre
drawn together to spend their hard earnings. Just
on the same princinlo as tho shonkceners and stall
owners prepare thoir goods and display their yari-j
vus manufactures to tempt the desires of tho mon
eyed customers, so do tho vile dealers in stimulated
misory and misfortune prepare their harrowing
nnd heart-rending exhibitions to speculate upon
tho sympathy of tho charitable poor. Kvery Sat
urday night in London, tho lame, tho halt ami the
Mind, the maimed, the mutilated and the crippled,
tho widowed aud the dosertcd, nre manufactured
by hundreds to reap the harvest of certain amount
of benevolence which is kuown to charactcrizo the
lower order of the London working populace, the
majority of whom, it should bo remembered, ro
not Londoners born, but country-brad ortixans
wno nave come nitnor in pursuit ot employment.
These miacreants display wonderful ingenuity
In the concoction of their stratagems and disguises.
If the weather bo dry and tine, as on tho present
occasion, they resort to some irreparable calamity
as their stock in trade, such ns total blindness or
semi-iKjraly.sis. If however it ruin, hail, nnd blow

manly garb of refined black cloth, threadbare and

villainous deceptions all originate in tho fact, uni
versally known, that the poor are ever ready to
help th distressed, and it ia true beyond a doubt,
that the unsuspecting benevolence of the lower
and laboring ranks boa given rise to thousand
devices of unblushing fraud, which makca a prey
of their charitable tendencies.

the Professor expected, and he was sorely perplexed
Ho wont at once to his study, resolved to do his ut
most to comply with such an unheard of, and to him
unreasonable request. Hooks woro snatched from
his shelves; manuscripts were carefully examined

in requisition to uolvo these questions, on which

desire to establish his reputation, nil wrought ujion
his mental und physical frame, to such a degree
that ha was soon in' fever of excitement. He had
almost buried himself in his books; scraps of paper
with figures and signs covered the table, and lay
scattered on the Boor; yet the rosult was umittnined.
Still moro intense grew tho excitement ns as he
thought, figured, and read, while the perspiration
stood in large droiis upon his forehead, and rolled
down his face, lie w us vcrgiiig towards despair;
his whole system trembled with nervous ngitution,
when his servant entering the room. and. alarmed
at the wild and excited hsik of his master, eugerly
inquired the cause. Hurriedly he related what had
happened; the strunge questions; tho fearful penal
ty. Instead, however, of partaking of his master's
emotion, tho servant very coolly replied:
'Is that all tho trouble? Leave the matter to me
I'll answer for you.'
After some conversation, it was promised by the
servant to adopt his master's habit And meet the
king at the apiKiinted hour. Tho offer wa readily
acceded to by the Priest, w ho, to speak the truth,
thought more of his own head than his servant's just
at that moment. Disguised ns tho" Professor, the
servant met tho King, und told him he was ready
to nuswer his questions.
'Tell me then,' said the King, 'how many baskets
of earth aro there in yonder mountain.'
'That depends, your Majesty, upon circumstan
ces.' What circumstances?'
'The sire of tho baskots. If one is as largo as
the mountain, one will contain it. If hulfas large

'Tell me now how much the Kins is worth?1
'f ell, your Majesty, Jesus Christ wu sold for
thirty pieces of silver, and ho was the King of

To this answer the King could not object, and
he was nevertheless so pleased with the wit dis
played, that ho said:
'Very well, sir; but can you answer my last qnes

'Most certainly your Majesty. You aro now

vides that whatever profit shall accrue, beyond shall
be appropriated to enlarging and improving tho

institutions from becoming us common ns tho evil
of poverty, but tho selfishness of capital? There
arc rich men enough in every city to provide, under
such chnrters, comfortable tenement for all its
poor, at reasonable rents, without damaging thoir
incomes. Hut wealh, too often intent on selfish
enjoyment or inordinate gnin, is reckless of tho blast

make twice as much by packing a dozen families in

of Mammon ; why should he not sacrifice on the
