maker's hammer, long be'orc light in

family of Lord L . who were of that
unfortunate class who arc compelled I y
the requirements of fashionable s ciety
to convert niglit into day.
Lord L "would have slept soundly
under the verysncrtof a loeomotlve,but
his lady was unluckily the possessnrof
one of those intense ncrvo j tempera
ments which nnturally lecoil at any
thing approaching the hum-drum eon
lu ion of plcbe an pursuits. The noise
of the shoemaker's .lammer was too
much for her delicate org inization , and
s ic would awaken Loid L from his
blissful Blumbcrs, oftentimes at the veiy
jiointofa happy consu nmitlon of his
dreams, bjf reminding him of that hor
rid noise in t'jc rear. Lord L was
phlegmatic and foggy, by no means a
savant, though an intense admirer of
Lady L , who was talented. He pos
sessed none of the rjpellant discriuiina
t on of his lady, and would have prefer
red the society of some clever represen
tative of Billingsgate to that .f a minis
ter of the Church of England. But, as
we have said, ho behoved impliedly in
Lady L , and nything calculated to
annoy that most excellent lady, must be
removed at any cost. Of course, after
consuming the night, and three or four
hours of tho morning, in the enjoyment
of patrician pleasures, it was absolutely
necessary to Lady L , whose brilliant
talents wero perpetually on tlic sttcten
during those intoxicating moments,
that bIic should have the privilege of
commanding a few moments of undis
turbed quiet out of the twenty-four
houis allotted to the day, without suf
fering the inalienable prctogatives of
her nobility to be disturbed by a vulgar
and designing cordwainer.
Loid L and his lady had returned
about lour in fie morning from the re
ception oi the distinguished Duchess of
, his lordship being in a ulisslul
stat3 of semi-unconsciousness from the
potent effects of certain wines of m tr-
vellous antiquity, and her ladyship
highly charged with the brilliant bon
niots which had fallen like pearls from
the eloquent lips of a distinguished
savant, whose errat'c disposition inclin
ed him to a suit ot apartments, mciud
ing one room upon tlic uttic floor. But
scarcely had Lady L resigned her
self luxuriously to the nrms of ii.orpheus
when she was suddenly recalled to the
vulgar realities of a practi al existence
bv that everlasting thumping of the
father of eight children, in the rear.
She gave Lord L a sharp punch
in the ribs, which aroused him in an
instant io that astonishing state o self-
consciousness, whi. h led him to enquire
i.. uu...v..iiui a-SLV, itiougn oolivious
"Lord bless me I Lady L , what's
'he matter? What are you diving at
my ribs for? You have thumped them
now till they are sorer than Balaam's
donkey, Why can't you let a i oji fel
"I really believe, my lord, you would
go to sleep in a hornet's nest, or on the
brink of a crater I" exclaimed her lady
ship, petulantly. "I really wish some
time. I were as ha pily and stupidly or
ganized as you are. I should not be dis
turbed then by th everlasting thump
ing of that horrid creature in the rear."
"Ugh ?" said his lordship, doziug.y ;
"leave me alone this time, and I'll look
to't in the morning."
iSu denly, the rat-a-tat-tat, which had
-ubsule i but a moment betore, now re
commenced with renewed vigor.
"Good heavens?" cried her ladyship,
renewing her manipulations upon the
ribs of his lordship. "I shall positively
get distracted with that odious shoe
maker, unless you pay some further re
gard tj my feelings, and put a stop to
tins perpetual mumping."
"Oi ly be quiet, my lady, and I'll do

said my loru.
The fact of it was, our honest shoe

not thought pioper to stupify herajlf

her was of course denied.
On the same day at a later hour, and
agreeable to h'.s promise, Lord L
imid the shoemaker n visit. He found
him still pounding away at his hu able
calling, and they speed. ly. entered into
conversation. His lordship stated his

much to the exhilaration of Mr. Tubbs
