Selling Dry Goods.
People generally think that it a very easy
matter to stand behind a counter and retail
dry goods; but a week's experience in the Lu
sinvss would convince the cleverest man that
it is much more difficult and laborious than
the Insk of turning a grindstone twelve hours
per diem The office of saleman embodies, in
its duties, necessity for the . hrewdness of a
politician, tlie persuasion of a lover, t'ic po
liteness of a Chesterfield, the patience of Job,
snd the impudence of a pickpocket. There
aresalesmen, who make it point never to
lose a customer. One of the gentlemen who is
in a store in Chatham street, not long since
was called to show a very fastidious and fash
ionable lady, who "dropped in whilr going to
Stewart's," some rich silk cloaking. Every
article of the kind was exposed to her view
the whole store was ransacked nothing suit
ed. The costly was stigmatized as trash, eve
rvthine was common and not fit for a lady !
She tuessed she would to to Stewait'r. The
salesman pretended to be indignant.
"Madam," said he in a tone of injured inno
cence, "1 have a very beautiful and rare piece
of goods, a case which I divided with Mr.
Stewart, who is my brother-in-law, but it
would be useless. to show it to yuu. It is the
onlv piece in Ihe city."
"Oh, allow me to see it," she asked, in nn
anxious ton, and continued, "1 bod no in
tention of annoying you, or of disparaging the
merits of your wares."
The salesman, who was now watched in
breathless silence by his fellow clerks, pro
eeeded, as if with much reluctance, and with
expression of fear that it would be injured by
getting tumbled, to display an ancient piece
of vesting, which had been lying in the store
for five years, and was considered to be un
saleable. The lady examined and liked it
much. Thai was a piece of goods that was
worthy to be worn. How much was it a
"Twenty-two shillings." .
- "O ! lhat is verv hiiih."
There," exclaimed he, beginning to fold it
up, "I knew you would say that." 1
"Stay I stay ! don't be in so great a hurry,"
she cried, "I'll give you twenty shillings."
"Madame, vou intuit me again.'1
- "Cut me off- yards, and you can make up
tha deduction on some velvet which I require
for trimmings," almost entreated tho fair
The salesman after much persuasion, sold
tha lady th vesting for which they had in
vain sought to cet five shillings per yard,at the
price above indicated. -, Tha profits of tha sal
on viting and velvet amounted to $33, out of
wbioh the clerks were permitted, to pay tor a
supper of oysters. , Th best of this brief tal
of dry-goods is to be told.. The lady had har
cloak mad, and on or two of her frieods.d
lighted with It. bought tha tea t.o( the vesting

Jones Hooper's Last.
The Montgomery Mail edited by Johnson J
Hooper, alias S mon Suggs, has the following
A correspondent of ours, writing us the othfr
day, from Lowndes county, relates the follow
inc anecdote of Judge P s :
The Judge was holding Lowndes circuit
court, and suddenly caught the eve of a wit
tiers in a trial which was progressine. This
man, the Judge thought, was making the most
demoniac grimaces at him, and without a mo
ment's hesitation, he ordered the clerk to en
ter up "a fine of fen dollars against that man,
for contempt of court," pointin? to the gentle
man wha, carried the expressive physiognomy
"Why what's that tor, Judge ?" exclaimed
the unfortunate man.
"Y u're making faces at the court, sir!
There you are at it again, sir ! Mr. Clerk
enter up not her fine of the some amount
ag inst this man."
Here our friend Tom J , interfered and ex
plained Hint the per0!i fined, habitually look.
ed as he did now was a worthy citizen; and
never was "in contempt" in his life.
"Very good, very good, Mr. J," said the
Judge. "Let the fines be remitted; but this
court has the general power to abait nuisances
which mterlere with its administration 01 the
law. Mr. Sheriff, carry this man at least two
hundred yards from the court-housa, and see
that he dosen't enter it again."
That poor fellow, we should say, 'had it,"
very baiiiy. '
I make it a point of morality never to find
fault with another for his manners; they may
be awkward or graceful, blunt or polite, po,
ished or rustic. I care noi what they are, if
the man means well and acts from honest in
tentions without eccentricity or affectation
All men have not the advantages of "good so
ciety," as it is called, to school themselves in
all its fantastic rules and ceremonies, and if
there is any standard of manners, it is omy
founded in reason and good aense, and not
unon the artificial regulations. Manners like
conversation, should be extemporaneous and
not atudied. I always suspect a man, who
meets me with th same perpetual amile upon
his faoe, the same eonjeering of the body, and
the same nremeditated shake of the hand.
Give me the (it roybe rough) gripe of the
hand, the careless nod of recognition, am

The Faver and Hagur.
A friend from Illinois tells us a rich anec
dote of an Irish pack-pedler being afraid of tha
"faver and hagur."
Pat entered a small dwelling, situated ten'-'
or twelve rods from the road, snd seeina no on
in the building but a thin man stretched ant, ,
apparently resting himself ons rough box, used
alike for table, bed, clothes press, and potato
bin, be asked the occupant "if 'twould be
convenient for him to give him a bit of some
thing to ate."
"There'a plenty of brown bread under that
pile of rags, and corn whiskey in that jug,"
said the man; '-help yourself to what you want
"It's a fine day, sir," ssys Pat, helping him
self freely from the jug.
, "Very," replied the man, lazily. "
"And it's a beautiful State, is tbit Elle
noise." "Beautiful !"
"And sure sir, I think it's strange that anyX
bothy should be sick in this beautiful Elle
noise ; but they tell me that the people are
sometimes furiously attacked with the faver
"O we think nothing of that," coolly re
plied the man; "its as plenty with us ss fleas."
"As plenty as Haze ! May the mother of
Moses preserve us, but I wouldn't have the fa
ver and hagur for every rnch of land that' in
the inone, dirthy State that is."
"Rut you can't help it." said the man.
"The divil I can't !" exclainred Pat, pla
cing the jug to his mou'h. and cocking his eya
across the ntck of it at the same time. "Sure

Without stopping to let down the bars, he

Boys out at Night.
I have been an observer, and a sympathizing
lover of boys. I like to see them happy,
cheerful, gleesome. Indeed, lean hardly un
derstand how a high-toned, useful man can be
the ripened fruit of a boy who had not enjoyed
the glad privileges due to youth. But while I
watch with a very jealous eye, all righta aud
customs which enlrencb upon the proper rights
of boys, I am equally apprehensive lest pa
rents who are not foreth rightful, and who
are not habitunled themselves to close obser
vations upon this subject, permit their sons in
dulgences which are almost certain to result ia
their demoralization, if not in their total ruin,
and among the habits which I have observed
tending most surely to ruin, I know of none
more pre-eminent than that of parents permit
ling their sons to be in the street after night
fall. Boys should be taught to have pleasure at
home, around the family centre-table, in read
ing, in conversation, and in quiet amusements.
Boys are seen in the street after nightfall, be
having in a manner entirely destructive of all
good morals. Fathers and mothers, keep your
children home at night, and see that you take
ptiins to make your homes pleasant, attractive,
and profitable to them; aud above all, with a
view of their security from future destruction,
let them not become, while forming their char
acters for life, so accustomed to disregard the
moral sense of shame as to openly violate the
Sabbath day in street pastimes, during its
"The Mammoth Cave, of Kentucky, is the
property of the family of Col. Crogan, former
ly of Louisville. He purchased it about
twent; yars ago, (in consequence of so many
questions having been put to him in regard to :
it whilo he was in Europe,) for the sum'of one
hundred thousand dollars for bis purchase.
His disposal of it when he died is thus referred
to in a western paper: "In his will he tied it
up in such a way that it must remain in his
family for two generations, thus appending its
celebrity to his name. There are 1,900 acres
in the estate, though the cave probably runs
under the property of a great number of laod
owners. For fear of those who might dig
d wn and establish an entrance to the caveon
their own property a man's furm extending
up to the zenith and down to the nadii great
vigilance is exercised to prevent such subter
ranean surveys and measurements as would
enable ono to sink a s aft with any certainty. 1
The cave extends ten or twelve miles in sev
eral directions, and there is probably many a
backwoodsman sitting in his hut within ten
miles of the cave, quite unconscious that the
most fashionable ladies and gentlemen of En
rope and America are walking, without leave,
under his potatoes snd corn."
