" HE SITS AND WILL FOREVER SIT."
There is belonging to the race of hu
man bipeds, a sort of troublesome be
ing, who, setting no \alue on their own
time, care but very little how much, they
trespass upon that of their moro indus
trious neighbors. They are a sort ol
stay-forever persons, who, having talked
over the whole world at one sitting, com
mence again and talk it over anew from
beginning to ead, before they are ready
to take their leave, lt a word, they sit
and sit, and sit, long enough to fully jus
tify the motto we have just quoted. Be
side their disposition to hang on, there it
generally about these persons a wonder
ful habitude, a slowness in taking a hint,
unparallel?d with the rest of the human
race. To give a single instance of this
sitting propensity, we will introduce the
story of a plain spoken old lady :
" I never seel the beat of that ere Cap
tun Spinout," said she ; " would you be
lieve it, he called at our house last night,
just as I had doue milking, and wanted
to-borrow my brass keetle for his wife to
make apple sauce in. Oh yes, says 1,
she may have it and welcome Captain
Spinout ; and 1 went directly and fetched
it out of the back room, and set it down
beside bim. Well, presently our tea was
ready, and I couldn't do no more than ax
him to take tea with us. Oh no, bc said
he couldn't stay a minute, but, however,
he concluded he'd take a drink of cider
with my husband ; and so he did. Well,
after I'd done tea, I took my knitting
work mid sot down 'till 1 rather thoughi
it high time that ajl honest people should
bo a bed. But Captain Spinout had for
got his hurry and thar he was still seisin
and talkin with my husband as fast as
ever. I hate above all things td be rude,
but I couldn't help hinein to the Captain
that it was growin late, and may be his
wife was waitin for the keetle. But he
did not seem to take the hint at all-thar
he sot, and sot, and sot.
Finding that words wouldn't have any
effect, I next rolled up my knitting work,
sot back the cheers, and told the gals it
was time to go to bed. But the Captain
didn't mind it no more than if it had
been the bite of a fte t-but thar he sot.
and sot, and sot. '
Well, next. I pulled off my, shoes,
roasted my fe?, as I commonly do just
afore goin to bed ; but the Captain didn't
mind it no more than nothin at all-thar
he sut, and sot, and sot.
I then kivered up thc fire, and tho't he
couldn't help takm the hint ; but, la me !
he didn't take no notice on't at ail-not
the least in the world-but thar he sot,
and sot, and sot.
Thinks I, you're pretty slow at taken
a hint, Captain Spinout ; so I sed sort o'
plainly, that I tho't it was bed timo
speakin always to my husband-but jist
so as I tho't the Captain could not heh
tnkin it to himself-but Ia ! it did not do
no good at all-for thar he sot, and sot,
Seeing thar warn't no likelihood of his
goin home, I axed him lo stay ali night.
Oh no, he sed he couldn't stop a minute ;
. so seein thar warn't no usc in savin any
thing, I went to bed. But la me ! would
you think it. when I got up in the mar
ilin, as sure as you're alive, there was
Captain Spinout sett in jist where 1 left
him the night before-and thar, concluded
the old lady, lifting up her hards in n
despairing attitude-"and thar he sot.
A NEW WAY or BBINO UNMARRIED.-A
couple out in Oregon got tired of living
together, aud concluded to unhitch. They
untied the knot by mutually signing thc
following document. We commend their
example to Harris, Strong & Co., whose
disgusting divorce trials have befouled
the pages of so many newspapers :
Know ali men by these presents, that I
hereby give, grant, and bequeath unto
my beloved husband, Proudhon St. Fe

of matrimony, granting and bequeathing
unto him, my beloved husband, all the

evening a gentleman of thi? town had
made arrangement? to spend the. evening
with a friend, but on going home his wife
insisted on his accompanying her to
church, and taking with them their child,
a boy of three years. Aa a matter of
coerse he went, but was mach dissatisfied
with the arrangement, and while on the
way was busy, conceiving ways and means
to dodge. At last he hit it. During the
first prayer he would pinch the boy-the
boy would squall, then, as a matter of
course, he would be obliged to take him
home, and then he would be free thc re
mainder of the evening. It worked to a,

A Caution te Young Alco.
A young medical student from Michi
fan, who had been attending lectures in
lew York for some time, and considered
himself very good-looking ' and fascina
ting, made a deadly onset on the heart
and fortune of a' young lady who was
boarding m the same house with him.
After a prolonged siege, the lady surren
dered. They were married on Wednes
day morning. The same afternoon tho
M young wife" sent for and exhibited to
the astonished student, a " beautiful little
daoght?r," three and a half -years of age.
" Good heavens ! then you were a wid
ow." exclaimed thc astonised student.
" Yes, my dear, and this is Amelia, my
youngest; to-morrow, Augustus, James
and Reuben will arrive from the country,
itid then ? shall have all my children to
gether once more."
The unhappy student repm-d not a
word ; his feelings were too deep for ut
terance. The next-day the "darlings'
trrived. Reuben was six years old,
James nine, and Augustus a saucy boy
. ?f twelve. They were delighted to hear
that they had a "new papa," becnus-i they
could now live at home and have all tit",
playthings they wanted ! The "new papa."
AS eoon as. he could speak, remarked that
Augustus and James did nut much re

A GOOD HIT.-Charles Lamb used to

A scheme for equalizing punishment after
death. This he proposed to do by having
a special hell fur Scotchmen, in which the
brimatone should be left ont, thereby con

Some chap out West has, however, im
proved upon Lamb's conceit, and narrates
the following story, somewhat at thc ex

fie says he dreamed that he once made
a visit to inferno, and whiie engaged in
conversation with the proprietor, an imp
announced that the Pennsylvania radical

would be continually disturbing the peace

returned, saying that Thad, insisted on
coming in, declaring that he had no other
place to go to.
After considerable anxious reflection,
Old Nick's face suddenly brightened as
with a new idea, and he exclaimed, "I've
got it ! Tell the janitor to give him six
bushels of brimstone and a box of matches
and let lum go and start a little hell of
his own. I can't have him here."
THE UNKINDEST CUT OF ALL,-A jew
eller, who shall bo nameless, applied to a
nice looking man to make a gold ring for
him, having in it a blade very delicate
aid keen, concealed except on a narrow !
scrutiny, and opening with a spring. The
bargain was made to furnish it for thirty
dollars. On the appointed day the pur
chaser appeared, paid thc stipulated price,
which was fobbed very complacently, and
with an air of satisfaction put it on his
finger. The jeweller of course very in
nocently asked what he wanted to do
with such an article, to which thc reply
was to cut open pockets with.
" Ah," replied the jeweller, doubtless
in amazement, "-how can you do such
things with such an instrument and not
be detected ?"
The performer replied that his art con
; sistcd in diverting thc attention of people
from everything that looked like design
upon tltem ; that he rubbed his forehead,
adjusted his hat, &c, and that discovery
came too late. He then bade him got d
morning and weut his way. Shortly
? after, the jeweller, ns he walked round
tho counter, was accosted by the clerk :
"What is the matter with your panta
loons? How came you to tear them so?"
" Nothing that I know of," was the an
"Why, just look!"
When lb ! his pocket was fuund to be
cut by the artist, with his new instrument,
and his pocket-book gone, with not only
the thirty dollars just paid, but four hun
dred besides. Verdict of the public:

A GOOD ONE.-Epes Sargent of the
Boston Transcript, tells a good many
stories under tho head of " Dealings
with the Dead." One of these numbera
he devotes to fortune-hunting, and amongst
other illustrations gives the case of a Mr.
Mcwins. He was courting a young lady
of some attractions, and something of a
fortune into the bargain. After a liberal
arrangement had been made for the
young lady by her father, Mr. Mcwins
having taken a particular fancy to a little
brown mare, demanded that it should be
thrown into the bargain ; and upon a
positive refusal, the match was broken
off. After a couple of years, the parties
accidently*ii..,t ata country ball; Mr.
Mewins was quite willing to renew the
ergag-.Tiient; the lady appeared not to
have the slightest recollection of him.
"Surely you have not forgotten me,"
said he. "What name, sir?" she in
quired. "Mewins," he replied ; " I had
the honor of paying my addresses to you,
about two years ngo.ft " I remember a
person of that name," she rejoined, "who
paid his addresses to my father's brown
