A 6tory is going tho rounds of the papers of
ajnl;p concerning a sivolled-head trick which
was played oil upon a young mini newly inilia
ted into the mysteries ol drinking, which ic-!
mind- mc forcibly of a story which is current in '
Detroit, anil which is altogether to good to
keep. There is a certain gentleman in the City
of the Straits who is in the habit of indulging .
in a social glass occasionally and who has !
, been known before now to become, as the imul
i crate phrase i--, a "little light." lie is known '
by all the fashionable residents as well as si - 1
I journcrs by the cognomen of Dave Smart. I
I Now David has an enormous big head of his ,1
own, and is under the necessity of having ai
special block made for the pnrpo-o, upon which '
I Ins hat is fitted. And as ciilonnrv 111110111' ,
gentlemen won ireiiuei.t social gatlienno to
have the name of the owner in large letters put
lile ol 1 tie Hat, Jiive had his marked

David was invited nut one evening not a hnn-
drcd years since lo a parly giien by one of the
Minncr ten.' It was of course a magnificent 11 1
fair. All the elite of the beau innmlo were
gathered. Iced wines, (Miuinp-iigiis, can-h -vie
brandies, south side Madcria, were out in
profusion. The glow of the light, the music,
of the hand, the smiles of the ladies, the whirl
of the dances, were enough oT themselves to
turn the brain of more ordinary mortals but
combined with the liquors, wore of soul suLdn
ing power. Dave was one of that class uh'
believe it is best lo 'go it while they are young.'
and during Ihe course of the evening imbibed
freely, liefoieit was lime lo break up he would
have had several bricks in his hat could he
ban put il on but there was the diUirnltv.
Some o( Dave's usMiciate. who were rather
di-posed to bo meiry at his expense had tendei
ed him at frequent times during the evening
divers invitations to join them in a gla-s of
their favorite drink each one larying the kind
of liquor and insisting upon his joining vulins
intens. In the midst of so much hilli.irily a re
fusal was of 110 avail and D.ive found him-elf,
long before the fashionable hour of getting
drunk, committing several indiscretion", which
rendered it necessary that ho should leaie w hile
he could. Ho iva perfectly aware that what
he had drank was elTecliug him seriously hut
he hoped he would escape from tho ptrty with
out letting his precise situation be known.
D.iie lias ahvajs very polite to the ladies. I'
was a p.ut of I is character. Wilh the blood
boiling in his veins and his brain seething wilh
ttie liquor he had drank, Dive rose with a great
deal of precision, and bowing jn-t on one siiL
and then on the other with tho most polite air
and genteel smiles ho could assume s.i'd :
(Jontl nvening ladies! finod evening gentle
men! don't let 1110 interrupt yon. 1 must he
going. John,' to the waiter, '"bring my hat.'--'Ves
sir,' said John, and disappeared almo-t
instantly returning wild tho required aiticle in
Ids baud. Now it was a part of the plan of the
friends of Mr. Smart that lie should not he pei
milted to leave without some dilliculty ; and a
a pari of the plan ihey had taken the name
from his tint and placed it in the smallest hat

' Ah, yes,' said Dave, taking the hat from
John, all right. (Jood evening ladies,' bow

salaaw, D.ive, brought bis hat, to his head. It
did not go on us usual, D.ive look it down,
turned it round and looked at it turned it up
and endeavored to read I lie name ' O. Iv.' said
he, as ho again brought hi hat with a graceful
motion tn his side and boned 'O'ood evening
ladies, good evening gentlemen.' Again the
hat was lifted lo bis head, but it iva no nearer
a lit limn before, Dave started with some
tokens nf surprise, while all ejea were turned
' John,' said ho.
'Whoe mnp is that V pointing to tho in
side of the liar. John looked at it.
' David Smart's, sir,' said John,
' Who am 1 7' said David, pointing to him
self. ' David Smart,' answered John.
' Ail righl ! (lood evening ladies good even
ing gentlemen,' and again David bowed pro
foundly to each side of tho room and strain
aliompted In put his hat on. His success was
no better. Dave looked up as il at the hat with
some terror in his aspect. lie picked it oil" his
head nervously look at it again
' Humph,' faid he, ' Swelled head by All
rigid,' said ho, placing his hat under his loft
arm, and bowing again to I lie right and lelt.
'(nod evening ladies, good evening gentle
men,' and amid tho shouts and huzzas of the
crowd left the house.
Whether Dave was able lo get tho swelling

is not generally known.

London, Tuesday, May (I, 1851.
'The World's Fair,' as wc Americans have
lren accustomed to call it, has now been open
live days, hut it is not yet in complete order, nor
anything like it. The sound of tho saw and
1 1 10 hammer salutes the visiter from every side,
mid I think not less than five hundred carpen
ters and other artizans arc busy in tho building
to-day. The week will probably close before
the fixtures will have been all put up and the
articles duly arranged for exhibition. As jet,
a great ninny remain in their transportation
I oxes. w hile others arc covered with canvass,
bough many mote have been put in order
within the hist two days. Through the great
centre ai-lo very little remains uuaeeompli-heil,
but on the sides in the galleries, and in the de
partment of llrilish Machinery, there is yet
work to do which another week will hardly see
concluded. Meantime, the throng , if vi-iters is
immense, (hough the unexampled extent of the
People's Pit luce prevents any ctush or incon

than Ten Thousand visiters in the building to
Of course, any attempt to specify, or tn set
forth the merits or defecls of particular articles,

of treatment. Hut I will endeavor to give some
general idea of the Kxhibition.

Camillas; Sugar and Coffee from the West In

vtc, from India; willi the diversified products
of A.-ia, Afnca and America, fill this depart
ment. .Maunlactured lexlile fabrics from Sid

here very near each other; whilo Minerals,
ynniU, ccc , from every land and every clime,
are nearly in contact. 1 apprehend John Hull,
whatever else lie may learn, will not bo taught
meekness by this Kxhibition.
Tho Mineral departincnnt of tho Ilriti-li dis.
play is situated on the south side. I think it
can hardly bo le.-s than five hundred feet long
by over one hundred wide, and il is doubtless
tho most complete ever thus set before the pub
lic. Here are shown every variety and condi

Of Oidd there is liltle, and of Silver, Zinc.
Quicksilver, etc., not a great deal, lint not

stage of their progress, from Ihe rude elements
just wrench from the earth to the most refined
and perfect bars or ingots-. This department
will richly reward the study of tho mineralog
ists, present and future.
Directly opposite, on the North side of the
llrilish half of ilio main avenue, is the British
exhibition of Machinery, occupying even more
space than the Minerals. I never saw one
fourth as much .Machinery together belore ; I
do nut expect ever to see so much again. Al
most every thing that a Hriton has ever invent
ed, improved or patented in Ihe way of Ma
chinery, is hero brought together, tho great
Cylinder Pics on which The Times is printed
(not the individual, but tho kind) may hero lie
seen in operation ; tho cylinders revolve hori
zontally as ours do vcrticaly ; and though tome
thing is gained in security by the llrilish pro-is,
more must ho lost in speed. Hoe's last ha
unt yet been equalled on this island. Hut in
Spinnirg, Weaving, and ihe subsidiary arts,
there nro some things here, to me novelties,
which our manufacturers must borrow or sur
pass; tliougn l douiit wiiellier spinning, on tne
whole, is ell'ected with loss labor in (Ire.it Ilril
am than in the United Stales. Thcro are
many recent improiements hero, hut I observe
none of absorbing interest. However, 1 have
much yet to seo and moro to comprehend in
this department. I saw one loom weaving Lice
of a width which seemed at least three yards;
a Pump that would throw very nearly water
enough to run a grist mill, &c. ic. I think the
American genius is quicker, moro wide-awake,
more fertile than tho lirilisli ; I think lhat il
lour manufactures were us extensive and firmly
established as the llrilish, we should invent and
'improve machinery much faster than they do ;
nut I no noi wish io iiouy uiui una is ipuiu u

WcnxmiAY, May 7 1 1'. M.
I have i list returned from another mid my
seventh daily visit to Iho Great Kxhibition. 1
believe I have thus far been among ihe most
ous visitors, and yet I have not even,
I at one-half the aititles exhibited, whilci
I have only glanced r.t most ol those I have
seen. Ol course, 1 ara in no condition to pro
nounce judginenis, aim nny opinion I may ex
press must bo taken subject to future rovisal
I know well that so lago and diversified n
show of Machinery could not bo made up in the
United .Slates as is bete presented in behall of
llrilish Inveiiii in ; yet I think a strictly Ameri
can Fair might be got up whirh would evince
more originality of creaiion or design. If I am
wrong in this. I shall cheerfully say to when
convinced of it. Mmiit of thee machines are
very good of their kind, without invoking any
novel principle or impoitant adaptation. With
regard to Flax-Dressirg, for example, 1 find
less here tl 1 had hoped to see ; and though
wnai 1 nave seen appears 10 110 lis worK well
anil with commendable economy of tnatcr'al, I
think there are more efficient and rapid Flax
Dressers in the United States than are contain
ed in this Kxhibition. I have not yet examined
the machinery for Spinning and Weaving t lie
dicssod Flax ilhro, hut am glad to see thnt it is
in operation. The report that the experiments
in Fl.ix-Cotlcn have "failed" do not in the least
discourage me. Who ever heard of a great
economical discovery or invention that had not
been repeatedly pronounced a failure before it
ultimately and indubitably succeeded?
I lound one proniosing invention in 1 lie lint
ish denartmcn'. to-dav. viz : Ilenlev's Mn.meiie 1
Telegraph, or rather.'the generator of its power.
The magnet. I was assured, did lint rrinirc nor

Efow a Mas was Soi.p amd Bought his

story ofour old friend, Samuel A. Walker, Esq.,
the popular auctioneer, which is worth printing.
A physicionof this city bought a tract of land
in one of our beautiful villages, upon the water
side.and in tho course ofa short time put a hand
some dwelling' houo and other buildings upon
it. The land was laid nut into walks, and
lawns, and mounds, with fruit trees, vines,
shrubbery, and fountains, and statuary, taste
fully and beautifully arranged ; in short, the
Doctor had spared no expense to make it one of
,IC most splendid residences in the vicinity.

that it was just the kind ofa place to sell, and

read the description a littlo mure carefully,

place of resort. Arriving there, he deposited
iiis money upon tho block, and smacked his
shops for breadfast, as usual ; but the butcher,
in.-tead ol meeting the demand of his customer
as a gentleman ought, brushed the coin into
his lill, and drove Iho dog out of the shop.
Such a disgraceful proceeding on t he part ofa
man, very naturally milled the temper of tho

he was obliged lo submit.
The next morning, however, when bis mas

perpetration of another fraud, immediately ren
dered him the ijuid jim, in the shape of a slice
of meat, and was about lo appropriate the pen
ny as lie had done the day previous, to his own
cntl'ers ; but the dog, quicker than he was, made

from a Dying Wife to her Husband, was found
by him some months afler her death, between
the leaves ofa religious volume, which she was

before the husband was aware that the grasp of

For many long and sleepless nights, when all

with the consciousness of approaching death,

and although to you and to others it might now ,

self to leaving you, whom I love so well, and

alone with the sure conviction that I am about
to leavp all forever, and go down alone into the
dark valley! 'Hut I know in whom I have

evil.' Don't blame me for keeping even all
this from you. How could I subjret ynu, of all
others, to such sorrow as 1 feci al parting, when
t'ino will soon make it apparent to you ; I
could have wi-hed to live, if only to be at
your side when your time shall come, and pil

What an Immense difference it makes who
tqueezes one's hand I A lady may twine her
arm around your waist, press a kiss on your
brow, nr holding your hand in hprs, toy with
jour fingers to your heart's content, but ynu
arc perfectly calm and collected, and experience
no tinusii.il senalion, cither disagreeable or
otherwise. Perchance a gentleman whom you
dislike or feel slightly acquainted with ven
tures tn press your hand ; you snatch itnuicklv
away, the indignant blood mounts tu your fore
head, and with flashing eyes you wonder "how
the impertinent follow dares to' do audi a thing."
Ilalhcr an antiquated specimen of humanity
squeezes your hand ; you feel mortified for
yourself and mortified that a man of his years
should make such a fool of hiin'clf, that he
should think you can really like sucli nonsense,
und above all that you can liko him ; you are
vexed at what he ha done, and arc determined
that an opportunity shall never be offered him
of doing it again.
You place your hand confidently in that of
your lover, you are not excited nf confused,
you have ceased blushing continually in U
presence, you experience a leeiing of quiet
happiness, "a little heaven upon earth sort of
leeiing," you are perfectly contented ui'li
everything in this terrestrial world, especially
your lover and yourself; and yet withal it is a
loolish feeling as ynu sit willi his arms twined
around you that manly arm which is to sup
port you through life; a soft, rosy, happy lint
niduses your face, as your hand is ciasped in
his; ah, it is a blissful, foolish feeling.
Hut let some one whom you like very much,
not an accepted lover, but one wlin mitu nor
Imps, bo one, ono of these dav. tfnntU-
your hand in his own : what a strain. wii.i
joyful, painful feeling thrills through you ; tha
uiuuu icaps, uaiicing, iiimoiuig, through
your veins, rushes to your finger ends ! your
heart goes bump, bump ! surelv vou think. I,
must hear it throbbing! for the' life of vou, you
cannot, speak. After letting your hand' remain
in ins jusi long enough to show you are not of
fended, you gently withdraw it; but perchance
it is taken back again, afler a faint "don't do
so, , which is answered with a still closer pre
sure, with downcast eyes and blii-hing cheek,
you let tho little hand, this first bright earnest
of things to come, thrilling and burning with
this new ecstatic emotion, remain all trcinbliiiT
in its resting-place. Jlumc Journal.
Perhaps the writer of the above, who seem to
be a person of somewhat varied experience in
the matters whereol she so feelingly discourses,
thinks that all theso " tender, foolish, blissful,
thrilling, burning, ecstatic emotions" are con
fined to her sex : If so she labors unde r a slight
mistake. Men, especially beforo the cares of
this world press too heavily upon them, get
their " fee tins stirred" quite as often as women,
and it may be added, quite foolishly too. Of
course it is not pretended that every time a man
squeezes a ladj's hand, he is silly enough to
get very much excited. " The subject" tho
place, and the occasion1' make all Iho difference
imaginable. But thoro aro limes when tho
sternest heart melts at the soft squeeze of
femenine fingers, and feels bad : The culmina
ting point however, with ono of the roue.'ier
sex, in this business of squeezing hands, is not
at the moment of contact. The "tanlalizin'
feelin'" in its highest intensity occurs just
previous. After a man gets his hand in he
dont feel so. He not unfrequently thinks that
it is no " great shakes" after all. But just bo
fore, when he is making up his mind to do the
rash deed, when he sees tho little dimpled
hands reposing idly half open before him as
much as to say no are ready to receive com
pany, and his own " itching palm" ac ies to pay
them a visit, then it is that he feels like a fool,
and in tno-t cases is one. As to the "littlo
heaven upon earth sort of feeling" alluded to
as occurring when lovers are "hugging" ono
another, wo have " nuthin" to say. Xevcr
having placed ourselves in such a " question
able ehapo'' we arc entirely incompetent to tell
what a man's sensation are, under those cir
curnslnnccs. It is natural to suppose, however,
that as, in the former case, they depended in a
great measure upon the hand, in this case they
would depend on the armful. But as we in
dulge a faint hope of being better informed on
tli i 3 subject hcreaf'er, for the pre-ent we for
bear further comment.
Pimm of Fruit. Kvamples almoit be
yond number may be given, where single trees
havo yielded from five to ten dollars a year in
fruit, and many instances in which twinty or
thirty dollars have been obtained. If ono tree
of the Rhode Island Greening will afford forty
bushels of frui', at a quirter of a dollar per
bushel, which has often occurred, forty such
trees on an Bcrc would yield u crop worth four
hundred dollars. Hut taking but one quarter
of this amount as a low average for all season,
and with imperfect cultivation, one hundred
dollars would still be equal to the interest on
fifteen hundred per acre. Now, this estimate
is based upon the price of good winter apples
for the pist thirty years, in our most produc
tive districts, let a similar ralcul .turn be made,
with fruits rarer and a more delicious charHctor.
Apricots, and the finer varieties of the plum,
are often sold for three and six dollars per
bushel ; the best early peaches, from one to
Ihreo dollars ; and pears, from hardy and pro
ductive trees, for an equal amount. Ol tho
former kinds, two to live bushels per tree, with
good management, is a frequent crop : and on
large pear trees five limes ilu quantity. An
acquaintance received eight dollars (or a crop
grown on two line young cheny trees, and
twenty-four dollars from four young peach
trees, of only six years' growth from the bud.
In western New York, single trees of tho
Doyenne or Virgalieu pear haie nllcn afforded
a return of twenty dollars or more, afler being
tent hundred of miles to market. An acre of
such trees, well managed, would far exceed in
profit a live hundred acre farm.
