ON SECE1VING THE LINES "SMALLSIZED.
In a little piece'of 'oetry
Sent kindly unto me,
I see that small sized ladies
Are duly.prized by thee.
All tiny things of value rare
Are semblances I find,
Of charming little women; well
Compar'd by some bright mind.
As a little drop of water
That sparkles in the sun,
Pres~nts as many brilliant tints
As eyescan gaze upon
So in a pleasant little word
Much meaning may be found;
We warm or chill a human heart
By one Iuch breath or sound.
If in a little grain of sand
An embryo mount we see,
- And in the acorn at our feet
. The oak's futurity
-o in a little sentenced oft
- A volueni may be read,
A dainty, mental, feast, by which
The generous soul would fain expand
All things to its own size,
And nobly scatter precious seed
The heart to fertilize;
Taking no thought of who was small
.Or great, but by their deeds
Planting flowers, in kindly soil
While trampling on the weeds.
Coimanding me' and noble dames
Are pleasant sights to see,
But those who are not quite so great
Are just as dear to me.
Al ! many of our sex there are,
With loving hearts and true.
Who, though but little women, still
God's own creation too!
Accept then, thanks from one and all
The little things of earth;
Thou, who proclaimest far and wide
Their virtue and their worth
And thanks to him who sent to me
Those goods Ideas of thine,
For such a simple, pretty gift,
Fresh, from a poet's shrine.
An Englishman who was travelling on
the Mississippi river told some rather tough
stories about the London thieves. A Cin.
cinnati chap named Case heard these narra
tives with a silent but expressive humph!
and then remarked that he thought the
Western thieves beat the London operators
"How so?" inquired the Englishman
with surprise. "Pray sir, have you lived
much in the west."
" Not a great deal. I undertook to set
up business at the Des Moines Rapids a
while ago, but the rascally people stole nearly
everything I had and finally a Welsh miner
ran off with my wifc."
"Good God !" said the Englishman.
" And you have never found her 'I"
" Never, to this day. But that was not
the worst of it."
" Worst. Why, what could be worse
than stealing a man's wife ?i"
"Stealing his children, I should say," said
the implacable Case.
" Children ?"
" Yes, a nigger wvoman, who hadn't any
of her own, abducted my youngest daugh
ter, and sloped and jined the injins."
" Did you see her ?"
"See her ? Yes ; and she hadn't ten
rods the start of me ; but plunged into the
lake and swam off like a duck, and there
wasn't a canoe to follow her with."
The Englishman leaned back in his chair
and called for another mug of 'alf-and alf;
while Case smoked his cigar and credulous
friend at the same time most remorselessly.
"I-I shan't go any further West-i
think," at length observed the excited Johr
"I should not advise any one to go,'
said Case, quietly. " My brother once liv
ed there but he had to leave although his
business was the best in the country."
"What business was he in, pray ?"
"Lumbering-had a saw-mill."
" And they stole his lumber ?"
" Yes, and saw logs, too."
" Yes; whole dozens of the black walnut
logs were carried away in a single night.'
" Is it possible ?"
" True u~pon mny honor, sir. Hie tried
every way to prevent it, had men hired to
watch his logs, but it was all of no use.
They would whip them away as easily as ii
there had been nobody there. They would
steal them out of the river, out of the cove.
and even out of the railways."
" Good gracious."
" Just to give you an idea how they car
steal there," sending a sly wink at the lis
tening company, "just to give you an ides
-did you ever work in a saw-mill ?"
" Well, one day mny brother bought an
alfired fine black walnut log-four feet three
at the butt, and not a knot in it. He was
determined to keep that log any how, and
.hired two Scotchmen to watch it all night.
Well, they took a small demijohn of whais
key with them, snaked the log up the side
of the hill above the mill, built a fire, and
then sat down on the log to play keerds,
just to keep awake, you see. 'Twas a mon
strous big. log-bark two inches thick,
Well, as 1 was saying, they played keerds
and drank whiskey all ~night, and as it be.
gan to grow light, went to sleep a straddle
of the log. A bout a minute after daylight
George went over to the mill to see how
they were getting along and the log was
" What were the Sootchmnen doing?"
" Sitting on the bark. -The thieves had
dr'ove an iron wedge into the butt end,
which pointed down hill and hitched a yoke
of oxen on, and pulled it right out, leaving
the shell and Scotchers sitting a straddle of
it, fast asleep !"
The Englishman here rose, dropped his
cigar stump into the spittoon, and looking
at his watch, said he thought he would go
on deck and see how far we'd be down the
river before morning.
A contemporary, describing.a dance at a
village in the neighborhood, said : " The
gorgeous strings of glass beads glistened on
the heaving bosoms of the village belles,
like polished rubies, on the delicate surface
of warm apple dumplings.
" WHAT are you about, my dear?"' said
his grandmother to a little boy who was
sliding along the room, and casting furtive
glances at a gentleman who was paying a
visit. -"I am trying.to steal patpa's..hat out
of the room without l'etting the gentleman

THEl 1A 1 iEIEb
T .1LAY IN GREY'SILL
The New York correspondent of the
Philadelphia Sunday Mercury, in referring
to the fact that the Ilon. James Quiggle,
forinerly a member of the Pennsylvania
Senate from Clinton and Centre counties,
had taken up his residence in the "Quaker
City," relates the following anecdote:
Some years since, on the road from Lan
caster to Philadelphia, on a blazing hot sum
mer day, Judge Jim Pollock, (your present
Governor,) Hon. Jim Quiggle, (then plain
Lawyer Quiggle,) and your correspondent,
who knew the former well, but not the lat
ter, were alone in the rearmost car of the
train. Jim Pollock was looking out of the
car window, at a place where the train stop
ped to water, -when suddenly he drew his
white handkerchief from his pocket, and be.
gan vigorously waving it in the air, at the
same time bobbing his head out of the win
dow in a very vigorous manner.
"What are you about, Judge'" asked
Mr. Q., without raising from his seat.
"Why, don't you see, yonder'! There'
a lady waving a white handkerchief, and
I'm returning the salute-some acquaintance
I made formerly, I suppose ."
Judge P. ceased, but in a few minutes he
again looked out and resumed the operatiot
with his cambric.
" Who is she, Judge ?" asked Mr. Q., a
he lounged in one corner of ihe car, wit
his nether extremities curled up like a gi
gantie capital Z.
"Well, the fact is, I don't exactly know:
I'm quite near-sighted, and can't recognis
her, but she is dressed in grey silk, and
stands yonder, under a big maple tree, neai
my friend John B-'s house."
By-and-by the locomotive gave a snort
and the train began to move. Judge Pol
lock again flirted his cambric to the lady ih
a final salute, and this time Jim Quiggk
thought he would have a peep at her. S<
he crossed over to the Judge, and poking
out his head, took a view, but did'nt see the
lady. Nevertheless, the Judge kept o
wavering his handkerchief, the perspiratior
rolling down his face with the effort.
" Where is she? I don't see anybody.
said Mr. Q., after scanning the landscape
without observing any female.
"There'?" was the rather petulant reply
"don't you see that lady in the grey sill
dress, standing under that maple tree, way
ing a white handkerchief'!"
There was a suppressed snorting sound,
and Jim Quiggle rolled over on the seat
red in the face as a boiled lobster, whil
your correspondent picked him up in a stati
of virulent paroxysm of laughter, and lai<
him out upon the seat. After sacrificini
all the buttons on his vest and waistbands
he explained to the Judge the occasion o
the eachinatory spasm. The Judg/e hai
been exchanging salutes for twenty minute
with an iron-grey mare, tehose long tehit
tail as it fapped away the flies, had beet
taken by himnfor a white handkerchief, tear
ed by a lady in a grey silk / T he Jud g
did'nt swear, but he chianged the subject t<
saw-mills, the only portion of which w~a:
intelligible being the frequent repetition o
the word "damn."
A GREENhORN ON THE LOCOMOTIVE.
Mr. Sniodgrass, junior, has been 'scotting
around' at the West, and as sonme of hi
experiences are rather amusing, we copy a1
extract, as follows:
" When we got to the depa, I went aronn
to git a look at the iron hoss. Thunderi
tion it wasnt no more like a hoss than:
meetin house. If I was goin to describi
the animule, I'd say it looked like-well,i
looked like-darned if I know what it look
ed like, unless it was a regular he devil
snortig tire an brimstone out of his nos
trils, and pulling out black smoke all round
and pantin, and hevin and swellin, an<
chawin up red hot coals like they was good
A fellow stood in a little house like, feedit
him all the time; but the more lie blowe<
and snorted. After a spell, the feller cateli
ed him by the tail, and great Jerico! he se
up a yell that split the ground for more's
a mile and a halt; and the next minut I fel
my legs a waggin, and found myself a
t'other end of the string n' vehicles. I wasn
skeered, but I had three chills and a stroki
of palsy in less than five minutes, and mn
face had a curious brownishi-yaller-green
blueish color in it, which was perfectly un
accountable. 'Wet ll,' says I, 'comment i
superfluous.' And I took a seat in thi
nearest waggin, or car as they call it--:
consarned long steamboat lookin thing, will
a string of pews down each side, big enougl
to hold about a man-and-a-half. Just as.
sat down the hoss hollered twice, and start
ed off like a streak, pitchen me head firs
at the stomach of a big Irish woman, an<
she gave a tremenjous grunt then k-etch'
me by the head and crammed ime under th<
seat; and when I got out and staggered t<
another seat, the ears was a junmpin an<
tearin along at nigh onto forty thmousn
miles an hour, and everybody was a bobbiF
up and down like a mill saw, and ever)
wretch of 'em had his mouth wide open an<
looked like laflin, but I couldn't hear nothini
the cars kept such a rackit. Binmeby the;
stopped all at once, and then such anothei
laff busted out o' them passengers as I nevel
hearn before. Laffin at me, too, that's wha
made me mad, and I was mad as thunde1
too. I ris up, and shakin my fist at 'em
says I, ' Ladies and gentlemen, look a here
I'm a peaceable stranger-, and away the
dern train went like small pox was in town
jerking me dowvn in the seat with a whac]
like I'd been thrown from the moon, ani
their cussed mouths flopped open and th<
fellers went to bobbin up and down again
I put on an air of maignanimouis contemip
like, and took no more notice of 'em and
very naturally went to bobbin up and dowi
" I say, old boy," cried Paul Pry to ai
excavator in North Shieldls, whom he espied
at the bottom of a yawning gulf, " what are
you diggin' there'!" " A big hole," the old
boy replied. Paul was not to be put off ii
this fashion. " What are you going to d(
with the hole?" "Going to cut it into simai
holes," replied the old boy, "and retail
them to farmers for gate-posts." Poor Pr~
"WEM.~," said Mrs. Partinmgton, the other
day, as she was engaged with her knitting
work, " I wonder if Ishall ever be able to
express nmyself correctly. It seems to me
I never can use the right word. Ever3
time I undertake to say an -thing, I make
some blunder or other. M henever I open
my mouth I am sure to put my foot in it !"
-and she drew a deep sigh as she spoke,
indicating that her mortification was inex
"SEDLEY," said Charles i., " look mc
out a man who can't be corrupted ; I have
sent three treasurers to the north, anid they
have all turned thieves." "Well, your ma

"W11 .L you have a Daily Sun?' said a
boy to Mrs. Partington.
" Will you have a daily son! Why, you
little scapegrace! Ilow dare you insinuate
against a lone woman from home'! No,
indeed, I guess I won't have a daily son!
My poor dear man used to complain awful
ly when I presented him a yearly son! A
daily son indeed! Begone, you little up
start imp!" And the old woman called for
the turkey tail fan to keep her from swoon
AT an assembly of friends, a lady was
apologized for by an acquaintance, who said
she was detained by a little "incident."
"Ah, yes !" exclaimed Mrs. Clatterbell,
"a beautiful little incident, it was, too
weighs just nine pounds and a half!"
