Pa,t Maloney^ Cat.
Pat Maloney, better known by I
name ot Father Pat, on returning fr?
work one evening, was mets at the gate
Biddy, his better half, in a high state
" Pat," says she, " there's a strange
m tho cabin."
Cast her out, thin; don't bc bothei
me about the baste."
" Faix, an' I've been strivin' to do t
for the matter of tin minits past, but
is beyaut my rache. behind the big
chist in the "corner. Will ycz be a!
helpin me drive her out Pat 1"
" To be sure I will ; bad luck to

to me, Biddy, till I tache her the resp
that's due to a man in his own hou*e
be takin1 possession without as mud
be yer lave-th? thaf? o' the world !"
Now, Pat Iud u. special antipathy
cats, and inver let pass an opportiu;
to kill one. This he resolved to do
the present case, aud instantly forme
plan for the purpose. Perceiving
olio way ol' egress for the animal, he s
to Biddy :
Have yez ?vera male-tag in the hoi

* Divii a one is there, Put. Ye t<

.. Faut, im' I did, and thece it is ;

for not lett in' the cat lavin1 yrz."
" Biddy, J.irlint, ye'ro a jewel ; just
afc r bringing itt'? me at wan.-t."
Biddy trough?, the garment, and s
enough, it made :? good sn ?srittite fi
hag. Pat declared at a glance that it
"iiiigen*.'" So, lidding it dino aga
til ? edge of the che*f, he took a look
hind, and saw a-pair of eyes glaring
' An' its there ye are, ye divil?

"Sure, I've the lull of a tay-kittlo

Be aft her castin' the matter c

" Howld close, tlti.t-here goes
So saying, dash went thc water, i
out came tho animal into Pat's trap.
" Arrah, bc the howly poker, 1 h:
Mm now, Biddy," said Pat. " I? it n

just whack the daylights out of thc h
then divil iutirely."
Pat threw the bundle over his she
der, and Biddy struck about three bia
to the tune of St. Patrick's day in i
morning, when she suddenly stopped.
" What smills so quar, Pat? Su
it's taken mc bri th away wid the pov
of it. O murther, Pat, it's the divil

" Bate him, thin-bate the horns ol

" Ooh, murther, murther ! Biddy A

" Pat, for the love o' God, if ye're cc

" Faix, the little villain bates thc di'
himself; he's ruined me house, and k
Biddy, an1 put me out o' eonsate M id n

By the dint of washing, and scourin
and the burial of Biddy's best pcltico
under the ground for a space of ti rr
things were at length set to rights agai
But not a little recrimination took pl?
between them on the occasion, and n<

An lud?an Story.
A romantic young lady, whose mn
was deeply imbued with reading " Tl
Sorrows of Werter," and other novels i
the exquisitely sentimental school, a]
proached a stalwart savage, whose sor
bre visage indicated suffering of soir
kind, and addressed him thus :
" Why droops the eagle eye of the fb
est chief ? Is he brooding over the wronr,
of his race? Does-the memory of th
red warrior revert to the past, when hi
proud ancestors roamed through th
mighty forests, and enjoyed the primcvt
glories of Nature, now so sadly .marre
by the axe and plough of the sympathii
ing rustic ?"
The answer of the forest chief with th
drooping eagle-eye, was a little shockin:
to her refined sensibility :
"No! White man gib Ingun too mud
wh'*ks!ee. Ingun big drunk last night : In
gjjn sick ; by-and-by Ingun puke ; Injui
well again, ugh !" .
In one of the most populous of th<
western towns of Massachusetts, residec
two Orthodox deacons-one, Deacon Bib
ble, a wealthy resident of the principal
village ; the other, Deacon Crawfoot, I
plain farmer and living in the outskirts
upon the mountain-side.
During a protracted meeting, held in
tho village, Deacon Crawfoot came in tn
attend it, and received and accepted an
invitation to dine with his brother dea
con. The latter (it was a good many
years ago) had champagne upon his table,
and.asked Deacon Crawfoot to take a
glass of the wine.
*' No," said Deacon C., " I never take
" But," urged his -entertainer, " this is
as harmless as cider, and no more intoxi
'.Well," replied the farmer, "if that
bc the case, I will drink of it,"
And he did drink, and drank freely.
The dinnet ended, the brethren returned
to the meeting, which was a conference.
Very soon after entering, Deacon Craw
foot, who evidently felt the inspiration of
his generous dinner, started to his feet,
and addressed his brethren as follows :
" It seems to me, brethren, that I nev
er had such operitual views and emotion?
as I experence now. And I thought it
best to inquire whether these are confin
ed to myself or whether this may not
be indeed a pentecostal season. Whv,
brethren, 1 never had such speritual views
and emotions, lt seems as ef I was set
ting astride the roof of this our conse
crated temple, the organ swelling beneath
me, the bells pealing above me, and every
shingle on the meeting-'house playing on a j

An Inquisitive Taukee.
A Correspondent, writing from' New
port, ll. I., relates the following:
"Tho Hon. Duncan C. Pell, who was
lieutenant-governor of thia State last
\ ear, is a man of considerable eccentrici
ty of character-a whole-souled, good
hearted individual, but decidedly 'odd
in many respects. Nothing so much dis
turbed his equanimity as for persons to
exhibit a curious disposition,, and attempt
to know more of his affairs than he chose
" Many years* ago Mr. Pell was about
to erect a fence around one of his lots in
the city, and in order to save himself
from the daily interrogatories .which he
knew would be made by his neighbors
and passers-by, he had a sign painted, on
which he displayed all the information in
regard to the fence which he fancied could
possibly be desired or demanded. He
narrated concisely the following fact?:
" Who was owner of the laud ; why he
fenced it in ; how much lumber the fence
was to contain ; where he bought it, and
how much a foot he paid fur it ; tlife quan
tity of nails to be used ; the name of the
builder ; and the exact amount of land
to be enclosed. Self-satisfied that he had
answered all the questions that could be
asked,-Mr. Pell was quite happy at thc
idea that he had freed himself entirely
from imperilment inquiries.
u Bat one night, or rather very early
un a very disagreeable morning, Mr.
Pell was awakened from a drep sleep by
a loud knocking at his front door. The
call appeared to be so urgent that Mr.
Pell thrust his head out of the window,
and demanded, in no gentle tone, 'What
the-is the matter]' Standing shiv
ering in his only garment, Mr. Pell held
the following colloquy with thc intruder:
."Does Mr. Pell live herc?'
" ' Y?*. What dc) yon waut V
" '-Mr. Duncan C. P. 1: ?"
."Yes; Duncan C. Pell.1
"'Is it Mr. Pell who.is building the
f nee on Ma y strfrl?'
u ' Yes, VHS, certainly; What of it V
" 1 Well, Mr. Duncan C. Pell, do you
intend to paint that felice, or will you
"The answer and the window went
down together, and Mr. Pell retired to
bed, satisfied that there could be no es
cape from Yankee inquisitiveness.

A good story is told about a couple of
church-members-one of them a deacon
by the name of Bennet, and the other a
Bruther Griffin.. Brother Griffin was ad
dicted a little to the use of intoxicating
drinks, and was the cause of some trouble
to the church. On one occasion Deacon
Bennet was sent by the church to talk
with Brother Griffin in regard to the er
ror of his ways, and, if possible, persuade
him to reform. In going from his house
to that of Brother Griffin's he was com
pelled to cross a stream of water, over
which there was a row-boat ferry. In
crossing, the Deacon told the ferryman
where he was going, and his business.
When he arrived at Brother G 's he found
him in the hayfield at work with his men.
ile was very cordially received by Broth
er G., who suspected his errand and in
vited him to a scat in thc shade of a lArgc
" It is a very warm day, Deacon, very
warm ; won't you take alittle something 1
" Well, I don't care if I Jo take just ii
swallow," said the Deacon.
To make thc story as brief as possible,
the bottle was brought into requisition
pretty ofteu, the Deacon forgot his' er
rand, and started for home toward thc
close of thc afternoon, considerably " over
the bay." When he arrived at the bank
of the river, which was very steep, he
had to dil the ferryman, who was upon
the opposite side, and wait for him to
come over. By waiting, thc liquor had a
pretty good chance to work, and when
he finally started for the boat, instead o',
going toward it, he rushed down the bank
into the river. The ferryman plunged in
and brought him out, and after thc Dea
con was on dry land :hc ferryman said :
. " Why, Deacon, what is the matter?"
"Oh," whimpered the Deacon, "I
feel so for Brother Griffin I can't stand !"
After this if any one in that neighbor
hood got too much liquor it was said :
'. Oh. he feels for Brother Griffin !"
" Ilould aisy, Mike," said one of two
Irish pedestrians, as he reverently ap
proached a mile-stone. " Thread lightly,''
said he, " for here lies a very ould man."
Pat carefully spelled out the inscription:
;t Baltimore, one hundred and fifty-four
miles," ano then continued : '.' He was
one hundred and fifty-four years ould,
and his name was Miles, from . Balti
ENORMOUS IRISH BULL.-When an Irish
woman applied for relief at Portland, the
committee asked :
" How many children have you ?"
" Six, yer honor."
" How old is the youngest?"
" Me youngest is dead, yer honor ;
but I've had another since!"
A Bankrfipt merchant says that his
business has been so bad that he could
not pay his debts, even if he had the
A splendid ear but a very poor voice,
as the organ-grinder said to the donkey.
A while ago a farmer in Virginia lost
his wife, and out of love for her memo
ry, called his estate "Glenmary." A
neighbor having met with the same afflic
tion, and equally desirous of keeping be
fore him the image of his dear departed,
followed his example, and his farm is
known by the name of " Glenbetsy."
Why is a prudent man like a pin?
Because his head prevents him from go
ing too far.
How .long did Cain hate his brother?
As long a;i he was Abel.
