Sine reeks ago, several young chaps,
without letting their wamma know they

they got into a canoe, am.d pushed oil into
the middle of the stream. The current
running pretty strong, they were carried
down the stream at the rate of ten knots
an hour. At this junction, one cries out,

Round and round swung the old canoe,

Sonic years ago two individuals risiding
in Jcfer.ou county, btarted to Augusta
with a load of fowls. They stopped at
the first grocery on the road and supplied
themselves with n half gallon of whiskey.
It was not long before they were overtaken
by a traveller, riding a very poor horse.
Tto men of the chickens had already be.
gan to feel rich, and their philanthropic
feclitgs to ex pand. Tht- trauger was ask
ed to take a *horn,' to which he readily
agreed. The party travelled on together
for sometime drinkig and conversing. It
was finally proposed and agreed to, that
the stranger hitch his horse to the hind
part of the cart and ride with the chicken
men. The atiamal was according tied by
the neck with a rope, anal fastened to the
chicken wagon. They had not proceeded
more th.tn a milae in this way, before they
discovered thteir cart borsc pulling very
hard. Thec whip was applied, however,
nd lie kept amaving until they camne to a
retty steep bhll, when the horse stopped.
rle party went round to push at the
weelia, when it was discovered that the
traveller's horse 'a as as dead azs a hammer.

They camtped tnear a creek swamp hor the
night. Next morning the cart laorse was
missing. It was arranged that the two
chicken men should go itn search of the
horse while the ,tranger remained to take
care of the earl and chickens Shortly af
ter the traveller had been left alotie, he
toucked the jug so ofien thiat ha camte to
the conclusion that the chickeos must be
very muach itt want of water; and finally
turned theta out to -drive them to the creek.
The chickens were no sooner at liberty than
they began to fly it) all directions, cackling

selves in the tops of tall pitnes and pioplars,
to afl'ord themselves a better observation of

running about, shaking the bushes like a

at the citap just to time to see t'heir cart

THE MELON SEEDS.
The .Mlills Point Ilerald gives a sketch of
great interest relative to a lawyer of this
city. It is a colunr. long, and we must
condense it. It relates that at a restaurant
in dais city, one night was assembled a
party of young Creoles. at the invitation of
fine of their number who had just taken
out a licence to practice law in Louisiaua.
