B8S. MUMSN'. TEY)ETTICOAT.
A meek quiet looing person, calling himself _
John.Diqk9n,..As deteted on Friday. in the
vzy~it of ste.alin5. agiie roll o' redfiannel -
ofQ f ..lir ath
frjn9the,. door of ary goods:. store in Eighth
street.., Ue.did not deny. tlhe fact, but attempt
ed:to palliate his. offence by the following ad
dross to the Mayor:.
A Sir,:I confess I did. take the jannin, but
when-you bear why I took. it, you will say that
lam an'unfortunate man, and ought to be pitied.
X-y wifesays to me yesterday morning: -
John I've got a two dollar-note, Bank of
Hidsburg, (shys she,) I made it by washing
aia froifing, and I *ant you to go'and buy me
eight yards of flannin-red flannin (saystshe)
to make me ti.petticoats, for the spring is
bikwardi .(.ays she) and the weather keeps
eq61, nd I hiven't a rag that'i fit to wear. And
mipndyou don't lose the m.oney nor go near any
grg shop, (says she). for you know your weak- 1
ness; and don't you get into conversation with
any other loafers as you are going along on this
"So.Ita*d W d ney.tl tirvo A4lisi note,
(I d set out, and went three squares
tokeep clbar of the groggery that '"nC
per end of 6ur street; and that's the -.
Izfitissed it ; for in the other street I inet Joe
"'Jack where. you're bound?"
Says I-:-40 get'eight; yards of quarter dol
lar flannin, to make my wife tw6 petticoats."
'Says he-" Dock the old w6nianhalf a yard,
and let's have a coulple of glasie'6f toddy. It's
only makgg tlie iedd!ats i little shorter, (says
he,) and as she's gota haudrome pair of ankles
she won't mind having a scant pa.tiern."
"Well; I thought half a.yard of flannin'
would'nt make much difference, so in we went
to the hotel, thanged .the note, drank- a glass
apiece, and that put us in..the notion of more,
(it did,) and Joe drank-and I drank, and in leis
than an hour I'll be switched if I had twenty
five cents left out of two dollars. Well, what
cold I do 'then? -I ax-any reasonable -man
what could I do? I cbuldn't go home without
- the flanin and 'I could'nt buy it without the
money. So I hooked a bolt of it, (I did,) that's
a fact, 'nd I'm iot ashamed to acknowledge it,
for nothing else could be done; and if I hadn't
been nabbed- my ole woman should have had
six red flannel petticoats'idstaaof' th-e two she
sent me. after -and4hates the whole story."

While upon the subject of garrotting, a most
extraordinary in-sthnet camie tom cr knowledge
the other day. A gentleman, who resides not
over a thousnd miles from. the upper part of
the fourth avenue, Now York, was preparing to
make his usual visit to Wall street, in the mior
fling, when his little son---. youngster about
five, years of .age--approached him and inquired:
"J.a,hat do those . bad. men do when they
garrote people ?'I
"Why, my son;" replied the fond parent,t
who was delighrted at. the boy's inquiring turn
' of mind, and felt anxious to give him all the
information in his power, " why, my son, as far<
as l can understand, they come upon the. victim
suddenly, place one arm about his neck, then
stop his mouth, -and take whatever they can -
" They are bad fellows, alin't they ?" said the I
".They are so," replied the fond parent,
"desperate fellows ! Ilut they're very severly 1
punished when thiey're caught. Judge Russelle
sent two of them -to the State prison for life, I
only a short time ago "
"Yes," anuswer~ed the. urchin, wvith a severe
look ; " you always thought . Mr. .Jones was a
good many dida't you, pa?" --
" Ycs,'my son," wasthe-reply, "avery -good
"WVell,-he's'a garroter," replied the boy. .
'"'What do you mean, my son 1" asked the >
parent. ' - C
"WJliy" answered the boy, "he garroted
mnother last night -while' you was 'away. Hle
caught her right round the neck with one arm,
and'stopped her mdouth with his mouth, andt
she said he stole a kiss from her; that's all I
- know about it !". - -

making raupid tracks ir a lawyer's office. What
will come of- it, remainis to be seen.
CoaRc'rmon.-We mentioned in the last issue Ii
of our paper, on the authority .of a paragraph r
we saw un 4te Meitary; tlM Gol-. Orr had* been 't
appointed a Corporator in the Northern Pacific 1F
* Railroad by the Legislature of Nebraska. We. r
now state '"by authority" that there is no truth v
in the allegation. Hec is not a corporator, nor
did he while in the West, or at auy other time,
ever attend anay meeting of the Corporators of
offiers-he has no interest, direct or indirect, in
any ralroad in the United States or Territories,
except a small amount of stock in two railroads fi
in South Car-olina.
It was insinuated by the Mercury, some time
since, that Col. Orr's v-isit to Kansas was for the
purpose of aiding Gov. Walker to make Kansas
a free State. -*'e stated at the. time -that his I
visit was- connected exclusively with private busi- A
ness. We now state "by authorit" that Col. "
Orr did not see-Gov. Walker in Kansas, nor has r
he seen him for more than two years past. That "
he never wrote a letter to, or received a letter
fromi Got. Walker, nor has he ever heard or sent
a message from or to Gov. Walker on Kansas
affairs, or upon any other political subject.

hat the cane has started up again, and bids fai

lo this, it would present..the unusual spectacle a
wo crops of syrup from the land in a single sea

aaturity, it would at least furnish an excellen
'op of fodder. 'This syrup is, we think, the firs

hat many liariers who planted the cane, did s<

hat the yield of~ syrup ivould not pay for the cos
