BT RonRv BRAMBLE.
Sweet Julia, in the witching dance,
Received full many an ardent gli nce
From many, love- lit eyes;
But with a toss of her fair head,
She motioned, as if she had said,
"In vain are all your %ishs!"
She was a creature full of pride,
And full of lofty airs beside
She would not smile on any.
Her suitor watched her every gaze,
Her glances set their hearts ablaze,
And these were rich and many.
She walked with grace, and polka'd, too,
There were no figdres but she knew,
How stately were her motions!
Her taper fingers, sweet!y gloved,
Seemed all the things in life she loved,
All else was simply " notions."
Thus whirling in the graceful dance,
And trying every charm t' entrace
She paused! and blushed! while o'er
Her cheeks ran tear !-how pride was crusl,ed I
The string she trusted, too, had burt
Her hoops lay on the floor;
She gathered them up and ran as speedily as
possible to the dressing-room, and from there
home, and for several weeks was seen no niore.
FIGHTING TIlE. TIGER.
Some years ago, says a writer in the Philadel
phia Dispatch, I was in a gambling house in
Cincinnati, a silent looker-on at a game of faro.
In those days such operations were carcied on
rather openly, and almost under the eyes of the
authorities, with unbarred doors, so that any one
could walk in, either in the capalcity of a better,
or a mere spectator. Ia the latter capacity I
found myself, near midnight, when the door of
the den opened. Just as the gawr began to
flag, and not a sound was heard but the click of
the cheeks and the rattle of some dishes a dar.
key was placing on a table, in walked a tall, raw
boned, country-looking chap, in a gray.satinct
coat and a coon-skin cap. He walked right up
to the only vacant place at the table, and draw
ing from a side-pocket an enormous calfskin
wallet, which looked as if it might conthain at
least a thousand, in fives and tens, addressed
"Look here, Mister, I'm going to fight this
here tiger up to the nines ? Understand me, I
allers fight to the death; that is, until I break
you or you break me!"
"Very good," said the dealer, " you are one
of the kind we like to deal for." And his eyes
fairly danced at the certainty of depleting the
"But, understand me," continued the rough
customer, "there is one thing you must first
agree to; and that is, if you break me, you must
give me money enough to carry me home."
"I'll do it," said the "leg."
"You all on you hear, gentlemen," said Rough,
"that I have the word ot an honorable sporting
man, that if he wins all the money in this yere
pocket-book, he gives me money enough to carry
" Yes! yes ! yes " responded the entire party.
Here the darkey announced supper, and the
keeper of "the tiger" announced a recess for
half an hour. Thec crowd went into the good
things prepared, and Itough was not a whit be
hind the rest. lie dived into the venison, the
oyster pie, awl the "chicken fixins," until he
could eat no amore with any degroe of safety to
himself-not fo~atting to wash down the whole
with liberal potations of brandy.
Refreshment over, labor bade'fair to commencee
in right down earnzest. The dealer took off his
coat ; rolled up his sleeves, atnd seated haimself.
Rough aquared himself at the yible, and again
-drew the ponderous wallet. All eyes were now
turned upon him ; for spectators, patrons of the
establishment, and even bankers themselves,
looked for a tall game. Rough drew from one
of the pockets of the wallet a greasy and rather
suspicious-looking five doliar bill, and called for
the worth of it in chips. After scrutinizing it a
moment, the dealer tossed it into his drawer,
and passed over a stack of tea chips to Rough.
He next gave the cards sundry scientific "flirts,"
placed them in the box, and announced "All
.ready!" Rough placed his ten chips on the ace,
and the deal went on. Some eight or ten cards
were drawn out, when an ace came to view, on
the top of the box, and the dealer immediately
put tea more chips on the top of Rough's pile.
Rough let the twenty chipis lay upon the ace,
.and it was not long before another one made its
appearance, hut this time it fell by the side of
the box, and the dealer " raked down" the en
tire pile. He then waited a feiw mnonments in ex
pectation that Rough would open the pocket
book againa, but that individualecontinued resting
his chin on the paln of his hand, and gazing
abstractedly on the ace.
"Well," said the "leg," "aint you going to bet
"Nary red-Pinmlbroke-flat!" said Rough.
The "leg" laid back in his chair, and in a tone
of the most profound astonishment, said, " The
deuce you are! And I pledged mnyself' to give
you mnoney enoughw~ to carry you home, in case
you got broke ?"
" ou did that same, old hoss."
" Where do you live "
" At Brownsville, up the river."
" What will it cost to take you there ?"
" At the present stage of water, I think I can
get up for about fourteen dollars."
Such a shout as wecnt up at this juncture was
never before heard within the wvalls of a faro
ro.m !-while with great good humor, the "leg"
eninted out the fourteen d olhars.
" My friend," sahl he to Rough, "it is not
every day one meets a patron like you. Go and.
h alp your.self to another drink of branady, and a ei
S gar. Whenever you come to towitagain, give us a
call. Call often-you-will find the hatch-string
out. I wish you a safe journey. Give myres
pects to your witfe andl the children. Bye, bye I"
"Rough didn't shrink aue iota from this rail
lery, but took the proffered drink and cigar. " I
say, said he, as lhe held the door ajair, "'I wish
you better luck with the next green-looking cus
tomer that comes along ; but before you make
such a bargain with him, jest as4certain where
he lives, anid the sizse of his pile!"-and so say
ing, he disappear,-d amid the guffatws of the
crowd, in which the dealer himself heartily
"Mr.-, I want to buy a shilling's worth of
hay." " Very well, you canl have it. Is it for
your father ?" " No, 'taint. It's for the hoss.
Dad don't eat hay."
The proprietor of a forge, not remarkable for
correctness of language, but who, by honest in
dustry had realized a comifortable independence,
being called upon at a social meeting for a toast,
gave 'Success to forgery.'
Two Irishmen, on landing in this country, and
sitting down to their first dinner, found on the
table a dish of prepared mustar-d, which neither
of them had ever happened to meet before. One
of them took a spoonful at a venture, which
quickly brought a deluge of tears to his eyes.
" What are you crying about ?" asked his
" I was crying at the recollection of my po'or
lather, who was hung ab~out 20 years ago."
-The dinner proceeded, and soon the other
made a dip into the mustard with a similar effect.
" What are you crying about?" was the grave
ingniry of his comrade.
*"I am crying because you were not hung
when your father was."
As two of our children were playing together,
litt!e Jane got angry and pouted. Johnny said
to her, " Look out, Jrane, or I'll take a seat up
there on your lips." '" Then," replied Jane,
qjuite cured of her poufs, "I'll laugh and you'll
- fall i."
A gentleman who, under tjhe least excitement,
would exclaim, " there's a crisis coming !" was
considerably amused at being rvely informed
by a little four' year old "son,' that the cry-aie

ENTHUSIASue.-Wilson and Phinny are the
leading members'of the Washington county bar.
Sitting opposite one another at ihe dinner table
-they are always opposite at practice at the bar
in the court-house, and agreed as to the liar in
the hotel-Wilson was describing the effects of
a speech he made a few nights before at a great
political neeting in the village where Phinney
resides. "I ndeed," said he, "I never saw the
people so filled with enthnsiasml" " Filled
with what?" cried Phinney. " With entithusiasin."
repeated Wilson. "1Oh, ah!" said Phinnev, "1
understand, but I never heard it called bj that
name before; we call it' rum ?"
An assembled family, as the legacy to each
was read aloud, sobbed and wished that the
father had lived to enjoy his own fortune. At
last came the bequest to his heir: "I give my
eldest son Tom, a shilling to buy a rope to hang
" Would to God," said Tom, sobbing, like the
rest, "that iy poor father had lived to enjoy it
