A QUEER WEDDING.-Rev. D., a Me?
thodist minister stationed at Meadville,
some years ago, one evening, received a
note stating that a couple living in the
suburbs of the city desired to be united
in the bonds of matrimony, and request?
ed his services at 9 o'clock in the morn?
ing. At the proper time, bc wont to the
house designated and entered. He in?
quired of a young lady who was busy
washing dishes, if there was a couple
there wishing to be married. "I am tho
lady," said she, blushing. "John will
be in in a moment." Tho minister was
surprised to see no preparations, and
stopped to the door to view tho sur?
roundings. Two men were hard at work
grinding scythes in the yard, and an?
other, who proved to bo tho "John,"
was tending a cow and calf. Tho young
lady came to the door pretty soon, aud
shouted, "John, John, hurry up, tho
preacher is here!" John leaped tho
fence and rushed to tho house, the girl
wiped her hands on her apron, and after
joining hands, said they wero ready.
The minister proceeded, and had just
got through questioning the young man,
when the old lady rushed into the room,
shouting, "John, John, yon didn't turn
the cow away from that calf !" Ho let go
his sweetheart's hand instantly, and
rushed into the barn-yard, put thc old
cow through tho bars, and thou returned
to the house, again took his position,
when the balance of tho ceremony was
gone through. The minister went on
his way, John went to tho hay-field, and
the young lady resumed her dish-wash?
ing.-Forrest (Pu.) Republican.
The following extract is from Bulwer:
"Pooh!" said Lady Dclmour, turning
away her head. Now that pooh is a very
significant word. On the lips of a man
of business it denotes contempt for ro?
maneo; on the lips of a politician it re?
bukes a theory. With that monosyllable
a philosopher massacres n fal lucy; by
those four letters a rich man gets rid of
a beggar. Bat in the rosy mouth of a
woman the harshness vanishes, the dis?
dain becomes encouragement. "Pooh!"
says the lady when you tell her ehe is
handsome; bnt she smiles when sho says
it. With tho same reply she re?oives
your protestation of love, and blushes ns
she receives it. With men it is tho
sternest, with women it io the softest ex?
clamation in tho language.

TREATMENT OF SMALL-POX.-A great
discovery is said to have been recently
made by a surgeon of the British army
in Cbiua, in the way of an effectual reme?
dy for small-pox. The mode of treatment
is as follows:
WThen the preceding fever is at its
height, nud just before the eruption ap?
pears, the chest is rubbed with croton
oil and tartaric ointment. This causes
the wholo of tho eruption to appear on
that part of tho body, to the relief of the
rest. It also secures a full aud complete
oruption, and thus proveuts the disease
j from uttackiug tho iuternal organs. This
I is uow thc established mode of treatment
in tho English army in China, nud is re?
garded as a perfect euro.
POCAHONTAS.-A writor iu the London
Spectator, in a long article, tells the ro?
mantic legend of tho Virginia Princess,
aud dispels tho illusion about many of
tho attributes sho is said to have had.
He gives her history and especially au
account of her visit to England, and
speaks of her as "tho naked little savage
who played cart-wheels." He contends
that all of our ideas about her beauty,
piety, and of tho gentle blood of the
Randolphs, is quite a mistake; that the
first Randolph was a carpenter. To tho
descendants of thc Randolphs and those
claiming tho blood ef Pocahontas, the
article will, perhaps, provo interesting.
"I think I have seen you before, sir,"
said ono gentlemau to another. "Are
you not Oweu Smith?" "O, yes," said

UNITED STATES INTERNAL REVENUE,

./? THIRD DISTRICT OF S. OL
- Your attention ia herewith called to
the provisions of the United States Ex?
cise law relative to the tax on legacies
and distributive shares. The 124th and
125th Sections of this Act provide that
any person or persons having in charge
or trust, as administrators, executors, or
trustees of any legacies or distributive
shares arising from personal property of
any kind whatsoever, passing from any
decedent, either by will or by the intes?
tate laws of any State or Territory, to
any person or persons, or to nny body or
hodics politic or corporate, in trust or
otherwise, shall bo subject to a duty or
tax, to be paid to the United States be?
The returu must bo rnade and the tux
paid by tho administrator or executor,
upon e.ich legacy or distributive share of
the personal property liable to tho tax
before distribution thereof. Should no
administration bo takcu out, the law
provides that, tho party or parties shall
bo liable, who undertake to distribute or
settle the estate
Thu 12Gth to 151st Sections of this Act
provide for the payment of a tax upon
real estato by all persons, bodies corpo?
rate, companies, or associations, who
become entitled in possession to real
estate or the income thereof, or to moneys
to arise from tho sale of such estato, or
to an interest in personal property sub?
ject to any trust for the investment
thereof in real estato by reason of the
death of any person, and by all pereons
and corporations who receive a gift or
distribution of any interest in real estate
while tho grantor is living, os well as
those who receive conveyances of real
estate which, in fuct, either by tho face
of the instrument itself, or by some
secret arrangement, is to take effect upon
the death of tho grantor.
As the United States have a lien upon
both personal and real estate for the
taxes upon tho same, respectively, and as
the parties liable to pay this tax are sub?
ject to penalties, and faithful adminis?
tration cuunot be performed by allowing
the tax and penalty to be assessed by the
assessor through your neglect, which as?
sessment and penulty may be larger than
the facts (if known and duly returned to
the assessor) would warrant, you are re?
spectfully requested to notify this office
of your appointment as executor, ad?
ministrator, or trustee, aud to furnish
the amount of tho inventory and a copy
of the deed or will, if any, and a state?
ment of tho uames of the grantees, de?
visees, or heirs, of the real estato passing
to them, so far as you have knowledge of
tho same. This course will have a ten?
dency to secure you as well as tho Go?
vernment, and tho honest tax-payer who
may be ignorant of his duty.

Avoid wetting the lips, especially wheu

of Philip Dubio, on the corner of Market
and Twenty-fourth streets.
The wind carried sparks across Market
to tho framo building known as Girar -
din's Hall, occupied by a colored man as
a billiard and drinking saloon; thence it
took tho guu and ammunition store ot
Joseph Labadie and the large ico house
of S. B. Lewis & Co. When the fire
reached the cartridges in Labadie's store,
the explosions removed many an old

remarkable case of consanguineous affec?
tion end 8ynj}Atay ls that of s fathor
and son living in the adjoining County
of Fleming. The father is about forty
five years of age, and the son is not yet
twenty. When one bas any complaint,
the other is similarly affected. If the
father has the headache, the son has it
at- the same time, ii ono suffers with the
toothache, the other also suffers with it;
when one gets a cold, the other gets it
also; and so it goes on through all the
catalogue of ordinary complaints. But
yet more remarkable still, is tho similar?
ity of their appetites, temperaments, and
general actions. What one likes and
eats, the other likes and eats; and what
one dislikes and won't eat, the other dis?
likes and won't eat. If ono becomes
angry, or gloomy, or happy, to the same
degree and at tho same time, is the other
angry, or gloomy, or happy. They
sneeze at the same timo, sleep at the
same time and the samo number of
hours; and, the most remarkable of all,
they dream at the same time, and the
dream of ono is the same as that of tho
other. We might go on and enumerate
