THE HUMBUGGED HUSBAND.
She's not what Fancy painted her
I'm sadly taken in
If some one else had won her, I
Should not have cared a pin ;
I thought that she was mild and good,
As maiden ere could be;
I wonder how she ever could
Have so much humbugged me.
They clusterround and shake my hand,
They tell me I am-blest
My case they do not understand,
I think that I know best;
They call her fairest of the fair,
They drive mad and madder ;.
What do-they mean 1 I do declare
I-only wish they had her.
'Tis true, she has lovely locks,
That on her shoulders fall
What would they say to see the box
In which she keeps them all!
Her taper fingers, it in true,
Are difficult to match
What would they say if they but knew,
How terribly they scratch ?
Dreaming on Wedding Cake.
A bachelor editor out West, whop had
received from the fair hands of a bride a
piece of rich wedding cake to dream on,
thus gives the result of his experience:
We put it under the head of our pillow,
shut our eyes uwsl.y as an infant, and,
blessed with an easy concience, soon
snored prodigiously. The god of dreams
gengly touched us, and lo! in fancy we
were married! Never was a little editor
so happy. It was "my love," " dearest,"
"sweetest," ringing in our ears every mo
ment. Oh! that the dream had been
broken off here. But no, some evil geni.
us put it into the head of our ducky to
have plum pudding for dinner, just to
please her lord. In a hungry dream we
sat down to dinner. Well, the pudding
moment arrived, and a huge slice almost
obscured from sight the plate before us.
"My dear," said we fondly, "did you
make this I"
"Yes, love-ain't it nice I"
"Glorious-the best bread pudding I
ever tasted in my life."
"Plum pudding, ducky," suggested my
0 0 no, dearest, bread pudding, I al
ways was fond of 'em."
" Call that bread pudding!" exclaimed
my wife, while her pretty lips curled
slightly with. contempt.
" Certainly, my dear-reckon I've eat
enough at the Sherwood House to know.
Bread pudding, my love, by all means."
" Husband, this is really too bad. Plum
pudding is twice as hard to make as bread
pudding, and is more expensive, and is a
great deal better. I say this is plum
pudding sir," and my pretty wife's brow
flushed with excitement.
" My love, my sweet, my dear love,"
exclaimed we, soothingly, "do not .get
angry. i'm sure it's very good, if it is
"You mean),low wretch," fondly re
plied my wvife, in a high tone, " you know
it is plum pudding."
" Then, madam, it is so meanly put to
gether and so badly burnt, that the devil
himself wouldn't knowv it. I tell you,
madam, most distinctly and emphatically,
and [ will not be contradicted, that it is
bread pudding, and the meanest kind at
"It is plum pudding !" shrieked my
wife, as she hurled a glass of claret in
my face, the glass itself 'tapping the
claret' from my nose.
" Bread pudding !" gasped we, pluck
to the last, and graspinig a roasted chick
en by the left leg.
"Plum pudding !" rose above the din,
as I had a distinctive perception of feel.
ing two plates smash across my head.
" Bread pudding !" we groaned in rage,
as the chicken left our hand, and flying
with swill wing across the table, landed
in madam's bosom.
" Plum pudding !" resounded the war
cry from the enemy, as the gravy dish
took us where we had been depositing
the first part of our dinner, and a plate
of beets landed upon a white vest.
" Bread pudding, for ever !" shouted we
in defiance, dodging the soup tureen, and
falling beneath its contents.
"Plum pudding !" yelled the amiable
spouse, as noticing our misfortune, she
determined to keep us dowvn by piling
upon our head the dishcs with no gentle
hand. Then in rapid succession followed
the war cries: " Plum pudding !" shrieked
she with every dish.
"Bread pudding !" in smothered tones;
came up from the pile in reply. Then it
was " plum pudding" in rapid succession,
the last cry growing feeble, till just as I
can distinctly recollect, it had grown to
a whisper. " Plum pudding" resounded
like thunder, followed by a tremendous
crash, as my wife leaped upon the pile
with her delicate feet, and commenced
jumping up and down, when, thank Hea
ven, we awoke and thus saved our life.
We shall never dream on wedding cake
again-that's the moral.
Kssrs& A YANKsER TAI~oR's WIFE.
William the IV., late King of England,
when Prince of Wales and during his ser
vice off the coast of Canada made an
excursion into Upper Canada, and crossed
over to the State of Vermont. lHe en
tered a tailor shop and on seeing the tai

man, he, without ceremony ravished a
kiss from the lady and remarked,
" There now, tell your country women
that the son of the King of England has
kissed a Yankee tailor's wife."
Unhappily for him at that moment, her
husband appeared from the back room,
and being a stout follow, gave the scion
of royalty a tremendous kick and ex

GOOD JOKE ON A WIDOWER.-A cor
respondent at Holly Springs; Mississipii,
tells the following and vouches for its
truth. It is the best joke we have heard
of lately: It appears that a widower in
that town, of a somewhat gallant disposi
tion, had been accustomed to visit the
residence of the widow M-, whether
to see the amiable widow herself, or her
lively daughters, our informant did not
know. One evening he found the family
party hard at work on some garments of
cloth. The girls- were sowing, and the
widow was pressing the- seams. The
widower "hung up his hat," as usual, and
and took his seat by the fire; at that mo
ment it happened that the widow was done
with the pressing iron (vulgo, or tailor's
goose.) She sat it down on the hearth,
and called to her negro: man in a loud
voice, " Jake! Jake! come and take out
this goose !" The widower started up
with astonishment, not knowing what to
make of this abrupt order. " Jake !" do
you hear me" again exclaimed the widov.
"I beg your pardon, Mrs. M." said the
widower; with visible agitation, hut pray
don't call Jake-if you wish me to leave
your house, I will go at once, and wfith.
out the interference of servant." ''he la
dies roared with laughter, and took some
moments to explain to the chigiined
widower his mistake. He has not been
known to visit the widow M-since
that memorable evening.
"EVERY INCH .A KixG."-An excel-.
lent story is told of the King of the Mos
quito Kingdom, where the British are
lionizing so much at San Juan, in Cen.
tral American. During one of his recent
excursions in company with the Britilh
consul, a small craft was seen sailing
down the harbor, with the American
ensign at the peak. The royal proces
sion came to a halt, when his mn:jesty,
pointing his sable finger in the direction
of the stars and stripes, exclaimed, in an
authoritative tone, 11 Wat dat flag dar,'

ELxOR1S, BujE CT., Dee. 22, 1850. .
Ma. .. E. ARsnAL,-Dcar Sir: In compli
ance with your request, I make this simple state
ment of facs. Mly boy Daniel stuck a thorn in
his foot about the first of last June, the thorn
was extracted, and no more thought of it for 15 1
or 20 days, his foot then began to swell, and in a
few days it was opened. It discharged a large A
quantity of matter. The discharge continued H
for eight days. and then ceased. Ilis foot then F
re-coinienced swelling and extended -up his leg, F
thigh, and hip, with violent pain. le then be
gan to spit from his lungs matter similar to that
discharged from the abseess on his foot. I then
called in medical aid, and from the remedies used el
he was alternately better and worse for eight or d
ten weeks. During this time a large abscess a
formed upon the hip, the diseharge was large, 0
andl as soon as it ceased, a general swelling of his ti
leg, thugh and breast commenced, which was very a
Tiard to the touch, and at times experienced much a
difficulty in swaflowing. Medical aid seemed of 13
no further avail, and was discontinued. I then tl
had recourse to your "Magical Pain Eradicator." tm
In forty-eight hours, from the time I commenced
its use, his foot began to soften ; the swelling on
his hip and breast subsided, and I amn pleased to
say he is notw well.
I again used your remedy in a esse of Neu
ralgia, with great success, giving immediate re
lief. I have tried it also for Tooth-Ache, with
my youngest child, with entire ruecess.
From the success I have had in the use of 1:
your " Magical Pain Eradicator," I have no hesi
tation in recommnding it to the public.
W. W. HUGHES." 3
The above statements of the use of " Mar
shall's Magical Pain Eradicator," are known by
me to be true.

The Faculties, for intellectual abilities,- moral
orth and professional acquirements,will eompau
vorably with the most distinguished in our coun.
y. The medical faculty constitutes an anomaly
this or any other country-all of them are able
eturers and the best of teachers.
Those who will contemplate our 'eapmic.
ition, and the extent of our popilafion, can
Lye no doubt as to the eligibility of our situation
r an enterprise of the kind. As to ieahhinclu
ng all seasons of the year, we deny that any
her city has more.
A common error exists in the minds of many
dents relative to the place ofstudylngmedicine;
Mse who intend practicin among the diseases of
ie West and South should certainlyeducate them
Ives at a school whose Faculty are practically
quainted with those diseases.
That the public may be saisfied of the prma.
mney of this school, we feel it our duty to state,
at the Trustees and Facnity form a unitin action,
hich augurs well for its future success: and ihat
e peculiar internal organization which cauneits
em, cannot be interrupted.
