Hunt, of Jones Brothers (& Co., this
city to Miss Emma McKellar, of New

the city on last Thursday, and will
make this their home. Miss McKellar
will be remembered by our readers as
the young lady who visited Miss Nan
nie Hamiter last summer, at which
time she met Mr. Hunt. The balance
is told in the simple statement that
they are married. Mr. Hunt is a sterl

and we congratulate him and wish for
him and his beautiful wife a life of
happiness and success."
We are in receipt of one of Col. J.

reliable. Especially as acclimatized
or Southern seed do we recommend
them to our farmer friends or amateur
gardeners. Sowing these seed the grow

growing, and we advise all such to send
to him for a catalogue, and see what he
has, and see what he says for himself.

More Valuable than L rer.
We call our.readers' attention to the
value, usefulness, and direct profit of
supplying themselves this year with
the American Agriculturist, the cheapest
as well as the most valuable journal in
the country. Every nuiiber contains
one hundred columns of original read
ing matter, by the leading writers of
the country, upon all topics connected
with the Farm, Garden, and Household,
and nearly one hundred engravings
made specially for the American Agri
eutu. T paper now in its 43d
thnever before. Each number brings
fresh evidence that no time or money1
is considered where the interest of the
paper is at stake. Its House Plans
ad Improvements, profusely illustra
ted, are worth more than costly archi
tectural works. Its persistent and
fearless exposure of Humbugs and
swinling schemes, is of great value
to the whole country, particularly the
faring community. In short it has
something good and valuable for every
body. Owing to a special arrangement
with thePublishers, we are enabled to1
offer the HERALD and the American
Agriculturist for one year, and the En- 1
gravings "Foes or Friends?" and "In,
the Meadow" for $3.10 (10 cents for
packing and postage.) 4-2t.

Something About Pains.
I am to the front again, and trust
that the paiaful history will not prove
a front of offense. I am a modest m;n,
and a peaceable, I lik- a front place,
and every one who knows me knows
this, but as every does not know Snif
fles, or who he is, I tell them that they
may know. I was born, several years
ago, under modest circams'ances, at a
modest time, and did not even have a
shirt to my back; my relatives soon
supplied the deficiency, and I throve.
I was,born at night, candles were the
lights used then, and as I could not
see very well, and could not speak
the language prevailing Ihad to accept
the situation, together with the catnip
tea, small doses of which were given
at short intervals ; all you see was mo
dest. I had nearly forgotten the wea
ther, this was blustering, and the time
being March, the winds whistled and
blew 'gieat guns' as sailors express it.
I think the whistling was exceedingly
indecorous, and it is affirmed that I
criedl, but whether by reason of the
whistle or that I wanted more cat nip,
(I forgot to say that gin was used in
that good old time as a part and con
sideration of that tea.) any how it was
immodest. My nurse seemed struck
with my -love 'for tea, and said that
there was the making of a good man
in me. That niurses' language was
prophetic. 3My manhood has proved
its correctness. I have suffered, good
men.alone sull'er. This bilwgs me to
the point of nmy 'history,'-the various
pains which have run riot over my bo
dy these many years. The first struck
it with surprise, I was not looking for
it, pretty soon I began to look for them,
for they are regular as pig tracks, and
forty times as ugly. Ii was in my ba
helor days, and my frame was tender.
No wife to soothe. no one to love me,
none to caress, ale e in a howling w'l
derness, no gentle .i:gers manipulated
me. I had to grin and endure. The
wifely ministrations now are mine, and
they are good. How Ihave n eathered
these experiences puzzle me, if one of
these would last just a momen t longer,
or the screw make oi'e more turn, go
just one mite deeper, it seems that
Snifles must throw up his hands, and
turn the corner. I thixk of my fellow
sul'erer, E.11i. Christian, then, he is the
only man, who like me knows what
pains are ; poor~ fellow, I symp. with
him, he's a martyr. Every pain
known to a mnan born of woman is
known to me. besides those unknown.
They come an:i they go, and in their
ceaseless fiow go on forever. Soime,
kindly inquisitive, want to kro w o w
I work undler these circumstances. I
answer, between times, he--e a little,
there a little, and by the ex'ercise of
patience. The novelty too of a change
in the character of the pain, and the
place where it will spot me next, gives
me a kind of rest. I sometimes liken
- body to a factory, in which a large
-a men work, and as the case
"atives are on' a noon

the door is openedl, workmen enter,

owhat not ; all is life, motion, activi
t; justso is Snifiles' workshop started,
every nerve, muscle and fibre, is on the
stretch ; one fellowv with an auger bores
a little, and such a bore, a .newspaper
bore is'not comparable to it ; another
saws a little, it is a dull saw, and such a
saw as I never saw sawv before ; another
fellow drives a nail into some loose
*pat, and I wish the.t he had lost the

What Happened Jan. 15th.
An interesting Pound Party came
off at the "Garmany Academy" on the
night of January the 15th ; and, altho,
out of serson, Chinquapins furnished
a goodly collection of Buds and Blos
soms. The buds, from the manner in
wvhich they flitted around the little
Sisses in the dance, fel. of'full bloom
consequence ; while their's was the un
adulterated enjoyment of "Happy
Childhood," and as they glided through
the dance with the e:act precision of
elders, some one renfarked-How grace
ful ! we mentally respoaiding, that
'twas the result of the health and
bLoyant spirits deposited in each little
tenement, ackhowledging the divine
architect by instiactive' v di dleving
the grace and beauty of his hanidiwork.
Dancing, though largely patronized
was not the only amusement, for Oi
Leap Year held high revels in favorite
niches-in one of which we noticed a
victim attacked by two fair subjects
with proposals that should have made
his heart respond with joy..eould he
have chosen between the two ; but
both were so pe..'fect in personal and
meixal qualifications that the gallant
victim knew not how to choose. One
of the ladies said she had made a
direct proposal and had been rejected;
while the other, believing in maneu
vering gradually, said that being sur
rounded by Evergreen, while at her
side sat an animate "Gieca," she
would be pleased to sign her name
Ever Green. Pensively answered
Evermore ; then they felt so sweet on
the subject that ear dy wasn't at all
recognized. The supper was splendid
-not "Hot" but cold ; yet warm
hearts bid it speed on its mission,
while willJ.g hands furnished the loco
motive powers. We certainly did
justice to the beautifully deco -ated
table-partaking of the substantial,
and admiring the. ornamental; andlthe
taste and experience displayed in deco
rating, and furnishing the table with
the most palatable cookies-place our
Chinquapin house-keepers in a position
to compete with any of like persuasion.
Only one "black bottle" was found,
by one of our little pupils who said
.twas lonesome, which speaks in the
most favorable termna for the gentle
men that composed the p arty ; whose
perlect dejpotment made them sub
sects of kindly remarks by all, and en
courages exertion in other quarters in
the way of pleasant recreation. There
fore, no spirits save those of enjoyment
ruled the festival, and could our pleas
are have been enhanced, 'twould have
been by the presenee of our jolly
"Auditor" commnanding the dancers
to "Get aliout pert' ; yet when
twiUgh1 drops her curtain, he and
mnorpheus are such boon companons,

god to the detriment of all other,
