For thc especial benefit of those who
like a " little fun now and then," (slid in
our heart we pity the man who is not
included in this class,) we devote this
corner this week to a selection of amu
sing anecdotes, and odds and ends, that
must, for thf time being at least, banish
..?ll thoughts of THAD. STEVENS, Nigger
Bureau1, Test Oaths, and all such hell
hatched torments. Read, and drive dull
care away, ever bearing in mind the old

And every griu so merry, draws one out."

Fun at Home.
Don't bc afraid bf a little fun at home,
gooil people. Don't shut up your house
lest the sun should fade your carpets,
and your heart lost a hearty laugh shake
down some nf tho minty old cobwebs
there. If yon want to ruin your son?,
let them think that all mirth and social
enjoy munt mint he left on the threstadd
without, when they come home at night.
When once a home is regarded as only n
place to eat, drink and sleep in, the work
begins that ends in gambling houses and
reek less dissipation. Young people must
have fun and relaxation somewhere; il
they donor find it at their own hearth
stones ir will be sought at tither and per
haps les? profitable places. Therefore,
let the lire hum brightly at night, and
inake the homestead delightful with al
those little arts that parents perfectly un
diTstaiid. Don't repress thc buoyant
spirits of your children ; half an hour of
merriment round the lamp and fire-lighf
of a home blots out the remembrance of
many a care nr.d annoyance during lite
day, and the. b?st safeguard they can tak
with them into the world is thc unseen
influence of a bright little domestic fire

Southern gentleman, latea Colonel in the
so-cailed C. S. Army.
At meal-lime ? noticed that instead of

tioned himself at one end of the dining
room,-and bi a voice loud enough to be
heard far outside the room named over,
for the information of his guests, the ar
ticles that had been prepared for the table.
The great novelty of this procedure in
duced me to ask the Colonel how thc
habit originated. He replied that, some
years ago, he kept a hotel in Tallahassee,
Florida, and entertained a great many
members of the Legislature, and as the
members could not read, he had to resort
to this measure-a habit which he had
c-incc carried out from choice.
