,. The two i committee men agreed without a
dissenting voice, and I wag accordingly Instal
led in' bffice. '." The school over which I had
been called to preside.was very turbulent and
noisy, and 1 had more than one single combat
with Sosiah Parker, thCchamptbh of the mal
content. ' On 'one occasion, when this cham
pion was in the act of resisting my authority,
a grinning' head appeared at the window, and
a stentorian voice, that of my diseomfeited ri
val, cried aloud : 'Gin it to him 'Siah, right an'
left I'll back Ont of achool I was sub
jected to, numerous petty annoy ances, for Je-
mima naturaily regarded me as un de Irop in
the family, as I had filled the place which she
had fondly hoped would have been occupied
by her herculean lover. ; i .i v - i
- One night, towards the close of my first
quarter, I awoke with a tormenting thirst, and
lay tor some time 'endeavoring- to muster up
courage to descend to the kitchen and get a
pitcher : of water. At. was a cold December
night, there was a long stair-case to descend
and a winding hall to cross, before I cquld ar
rive at the kitchen, w.. However, I arose,, and
wrapping a blanket around me, silently opened
my chamber door, and began cautiously to de
scend. It is always the. case that when one is
under the necessity of being particularly silent,
he is always sure to make the greatest possi
ble, disturbance. If you are watching with a
sick friend, who has just dropped into the only
sleep that has fallen on his lids for eight and
forty hours, and - attempt to stir the tire, the
poker fulls clattering from your hand, the
shovel and tongs bear it company for pure per
versity, and the wretched invalid awakens from
bis dose. . If you attempt to steal a kiss from
the lips of a chert amie, while her gouty papa
is snoring in the chimney corner, your chaste
salute is sure to have the report of a pistol,
and the grumpy papa is sure to stand upon
nis poaagra-swouen ieet just so in me pres
ent instance, every individual stair creaked
with the burden of my person. , However, .1
succeeded in reaching the kitchen closet where
I quenched my thirst. , But an unlucky pump
kin pie stood temptingly near, and Satan, ever,
abroad upon Sunday night to obliterate the
good lessons learned in the' day, must needs
tempt me to assail it. Wliile engaged in this
agreeable employment, I heard a step on. the
st.ur-case, and had barely time to shut the
closet door; when some one entered the kitch
en with a light Reconnoitering the cause of
this intrusion through the key-hole, 1 found it
was Miss Jemima jiles, who bad risen at this
unusual hour, for the purpose, doubtless, of
beginning - the important duty -of, .washing
clothes early 4a the morning. I was confirm
ed in my opinion when I saw her rake open
the ashes, and build up a tremendous re
Here .was a dilemma.;. Though wrapped in a
blanket I stood shivering in slipperless feet ;
and what.if the lady, jwhat if Jemima should
ha?e recourse to the close,? ,- Would she not
scream out, alarm the house, and place such a
construction on my motives as would procure
my immediate dismissal from the town of On
ionville ? Jemima seated herself, before the
fire, and looking at the clock, muttered to her
self 'It's most time. .. . ..... . ... . ,
A low., whistle was soon heard; then the
window was raised ..and Increase. Peasely
jumped into the room. , He wore a huge white
bell-topped hat with coat andpantnfbonsof the
brightest blue, a yellow waistcoat and ft heavy
brass chain.' a-j Z'-Ai ..:.;-? ;.Jii. .

" 'Hushl hush!' exclaimed Jemima in a whis

" ''My stars! cried the lady, where'll yoti go?

"Increase tore "the door wide open.'- It prov

A DisTBBSSKD 'AGRici'LTURisf.- An Eng
lish paper tells a story of a "distressed agri
culturist;" '' -'V."A
farmer dropped hi here on Wednesday
last, to "pay his rent putting on a long face to
correspond with the times. On entering the
house, he told his landlord that times being so
bad, he' "couldn't raise -the motley required ;
and dashing a "bundle of bank notes on the
tables "There;" said he, ''that's air I can pay.
The money was taken up and counted by Mr.

this is twice as much as you owe me !' ,'DBng

darn'd if Adidn't take it out the wrong pocket"
Fnss at Eires 1 Good Hit. ,.
- An exchange paper furnishes the following
directions to people who .make themselves
"generally useful" at fires: -
"The moment you hear an alarm, scream
liko a pair of panthers. -- Run any way except
the right way, for - the farthest way round is
always tho nearest road to the fire. - If you
happen'tQ run on top of a wood-pile, so much
the better; "you can then get a good view of
the neighborhood. " Af a light breaks out on
you view, 'break for it immediately but be
sure you don't jump into- a Jow-window.--Keep
yelling all the time ; and if you can't
make night hideous enough yourself, kick all
the dogs you come across and set them yell
ing too. "Twill help amazingly. "A brace of
cats dragged up stairs by the tail would be a
'powerful auxiliary? ;'; When you reach the
scene of the fire, do all you can to convert it
into a scene of destruction. Tear down all
the fences in the vicinity. If it be a chimney
on fire, throw salt' down it ; or if yon can't do
that throw salt on a rat's tail and make him
run up. The effect, yeili be about the same.
- If both be found impracticable, a few
buckets full of water judiciously applied, will
answer almost as welt ' Perhaps the best
plan would be to jerk off the - pump handle,
and pound down the chimney. ; : Don't forget
to yell all the time, as it has a prodigious ef
fect in frightening off the fire. You might
swear a little too if you cart do it scientifically.
The loader the better of course; and the
more ladies in the vicienity, the greater , nec
essity of 'doing it brown.' . Should the. roof
begin to smoke, get to work in good earnest
and make any man smoke that interrupts you.
If it is summer, and there are fruit trees in
the lot cut them down to prevent the fire from
roasting the apples..-, Don't forget to yell!
Should the stable be threatened, carry out the
cow-chains. Never mind the horse he'll be
alive and kicking and" if his legs don't do
their duty, let them pay for the roast Ditto
as to the hogs let them save their own ba
con or 'smoke' for.it . When the roof begins
to burn, get. a crow-bar and, pry away . the
stone steps;" or, if the steps be of wood, pro
cure an axe and chop them up. Next cut
away the wash-boards in the basement story-;
and if that don't stop the flames, let the chair
boards on the first floor share the same fate.
Should the 'devouring element' still pursue the
'even lenor of its "way, yoii had better.' nsr
cend to the second story.- Pitch out the pitch
era and tumble out the tumblers. Yell all the
time! . If you find a .baby abed, fling it into
tne second story window of the bouse across
the way, but let the kitten down carefully in a
work-basket Then draw 'out the bureau
drawers and empty them out of the back win
dow, telling somebody below to upset the slop-barrel-and
the rain-water hogshead at the
seme time. Of course, you will attend to the
mirror. " The farther it can be thrown;. the
more peices will be" made. - If any'- body ob
jects, smash it over his head. Keep yelling!
Do not under any circumstances, .drop the
tongs down from the second stpry-r-the fall
will break its legs and render the poor thing
a cripple for life ; set it stri.ddle of your shoul
ders and carry it "down carefully.". Pile the
bed-clothes on the floor, and show the specta
tors that you. can 'beat the bugs' at knocking
a. bed-stead apart and chopping up the pei
ces. By the. time you will have attended to
all these things, the fire will certainly bevar-;
rested or the building burnt down. In either
case, your services- will no longer be needed,
and of course you will need no further direc
tions."; " . . : ;- ' ' ' ' :' "' " ' - " 1

'- -y-b - Shaker Bible.
Wo had glimpse a day or two since of a
Shaker Bible a book not often allowed to be
seen by "the world's people.". - It-is entitled
'A Holy, Sacred and , Divine Ron, Jrom -the
Lord God of Heaven, to the inhabitants of the
earth, revealed in the Society at New Leban
on,' County Columbia", State .'of New ' York,
United States America." This edition was
published seven years since at the Shaker es
tablishment at Canterbury. N. H. and the
publisher say that they have no regular prin
ter among them, "the mechanical execution
may not be perfect in aH its parts."-' 'We
imagine, bower, that some printer had a hand
in.it from its neatness and accuracy unless it
was printed by inspiration.: , It pretents-to be
a Revelation: and the testimony of eleven
mighty angels is ' given, who' attended ".the
writing of the roll. K One of the angels is nam
ed Con sole-teae-Jah-mon-sue, and another
Pre-Jine-fi-nan-va-ten-va-ren-ye ne. Accord
ing to the angelic injunction, the book must
be printed and bound by the, Shakers them
selves, to prevent its sacredness from being
polluted by profane hands. : The printing was
done at Canterbury, but it was .found, so -far
necessary to. deviate from the, divine com

So. we trampoosed along down the edge of
the swamp till we come to a track, when we
turned in- login file, and kept on about a mile '
or so, climbing over , stumps, wading through
mud-holes, tearing through' cat-briars, and j
stumbling over bogs, and at last . found our
selves in an open piece about a pole across,
which was perfectly dry, with two large oak
trees standing some ten feet apart; "Hold on.
Haines," says the boss, "let 8 pull up here ana
take some grub. You ain't had any break
fast nor I neither;' so you take that tree, and
I'll take this, and we'll eat and rest a bit"
"Agreed," said Haines. "There ain't much
use of going too' fast and we might as well
pull up a bit here as not ' 'Squire s'pose we
liquor?"' .','-.."; r?" " :";-;.:;;f '
' Well, old Haines and the boss sat down and
I fixed the things for them, not forgetting to
leave jthe bottle; and, thinks I to myself, "I
reckon I'll start on a piece and look after some
of the boys. So on A goes for about about a
two or three miles, without seeing any of them ;
and beginnintr to feel tired, I turned round
and put back agia ' Well, when I got as 1
thought, about where A lett the boss and
Haines, I heard a kind of growling and rust
ling, as if there were pigs hunting after acorns.
Hollloa, says I to myself, what's this? I'll
just peep into the brush and see what it is.
oo A turns in out of the track, and, by gosh 1
if there wasn't the boss behind one tree, and
old Haines behind another, each dodging a
bear t Holloa, said I, this U a fix ! ' What's to
be done now ? So I hides behind a thick ivy
bush, and looks on a spell ; but I had to laugh.
There stood the boss behind a tree, with his
legs one side and his head t'other, and when
ever the bear would make a pass at him round
one way, he dodged reund the other; while
old Haines kept his head a-going from' one
side to the other, and danced round and back
just as if he weighed one stone in the place of
eighteen. " "Uurse me!" said old flames to ine
boss, when his bear kept still a moment, and
gin him a chance to " breathe--"if this- work
keeps on much longer, if I don't have to give
up. A can t stand it oy ail mat's noiy. noi-
ler, 'Squire, for A can't" said boss, "the ani
mal is so infernally bent on grabbing my leg.
Good Lord, he liked to have had me that
time! Try, -Haines, yourself do that's a
good fellow 1 That animal after you aint a t At
one, but mine is I know, by its being so infer
nally artful s Ugh 1 you. b h 17 said the boss,
shaking his fist at the one as was after him, as
she stood on her hind legs, grabbing , at him
round the tree, with her head half way round,
to see exactly where he was. "Can't, we change
trees?" asked Haines,, "for I've got tired of
running round one way, and the cursed brute
won't alter the track. "Hey! hollo! hey!"
sung out the boss for me; "ho, hoop, ha!"
and by gosh, while he turned up his eyes as
if to holler louder, the bear gave him a dig
with her paw in the seat of bis pantaloons, and
carried away drawers and all. "Oh!" said
the boss, and he putone band behind to sdtk
what damage was done, and darted round
t'other side quicker. "Curse me if I keep
this position much longer, Haines! I'll take
the path and make a run for it ! This is play
ing bo-peep with a vengeance! It's altogeth
er too exciting to be pleasant; a pretty posi
tion for the editor of the Advocate and Journal
to be placed in a-dodgjng bears round ches
nut trees! Curse me, if lean stand it any
longer." "But Haines hadn't anr time to at
tend to what the boss was saying, for t'other
bear kept bim on the move, so that be was
all eyes and no care for any thing else; and
the two kept dodging and twisting, and head
ing .off each other with great alertness and
perse verence. "I wish I had a slight drop, of
something,' said the boss to himself, for there
was pq use talking to tiaines; be badn t time
to answer; "I think I could keep this up some
what longer, but without something strength
ening I must knock under, that's a fact No
editor of flesh and blood could do: it, and
what's more," curse me if I do !" , ' He went on
getting wrathy. ''Look here, Haines! I tell
you what this can't last much longer without
coming to some pass or other. A too, R.aty,"
replied Haines; "but may I never taste anj
thing stronger than water ' if I don't tliinl
we ve come to a pretty considerable pass al
ready. Here I am," scouting round this infer
nal tree, first on one side and then on t'other,
dodging here and there, heading off and chas
ing round, making myself a cursed jenny-spifl;
ner, dry as , and as hot as thunder, and you
yelling out to me to get you out of jist such a
hx as I am in myselt Uufse the b-tt, why
don't : you ah! why." don't you mesmerize
her?" But it wasn't any use to get them
wrathy ; the bears didn't give them time to get
in a passion, for it takes the boss add Haines
ten minutes to hre up strong when tney taut
politics; and as they were at that time, they
didn't get eveti a minute to think. ." Well, af
ter I had looked out for about fifteen minutes
or so. and seed the boss begin to get desper
ately frightened, and looking Till-fired tired,
thinks I, I heard a gun back north some time
ago ; J giless I'll try and hunt up that fellow,
And get him to come and shoot one of thse
varmints, so ' as to ' get qui boss but of the
scrape. .'So back I 'went and'ih half an hour
found old Bullet poking around among a par
eel of gorse and furze, looking after a pat
ridge he had killed when I heard his gun go
off. .As soon as I told him how matters stood
with the boss and Haines,"be loaded riwht up,
and started away Tike a fire engine -under a
full head of stearri, and made tracks straight
ahead, without steering clear of any thing.
Bullet drove en so fast that when we came
up where the old 'uns were, I was so all-fired
bbwed that I hadn't wind enough left to
laugh. There they was, jist ss I had left them,
dodging and sliding round, and the, bears
growling and snapping like all natur.. . Old
Haines had got so w ami that he had pulled
off his cravat coa' and waistcoat and had un
buttoned his shirt at the neck and wristbands;
awaiting a chance to duck his head and get
that off too. I verily believe, that fat as he is,
he did think of climbing the" tree; just to vary
the amusement' As for "the ; boss, he was
jerking his head from one tide to the other,
just like thai Dutch figure on cousin Sally's
mantlepiece; and I do believe, if he had kept
jon for about all hottr more, be wouldn't have
had a hair left on bis scalp, He's a little bald
on the too as it is. As soon as we cot near
enough 1 hollered out to old Haines, so as he
might know there was somebody nigh at hand;
and as soon as ever he seed Bullet with his
gun, didn't the old fellow look glad, and for
fear that Bullet would poke fun at him, and
keep him dodging a little longer, you ought
to have heard him' try , to petition and pray.
But it wouldn't do; if ever he learned how,
he'd forgot I reckon, though he never bad
any schooling in that line. "OG, Bullet'' says
he, "if you ever heerd minister Damenhall tell
about the next world, and you have a look to
be saved and jest think about my da'ter to
hum, and the old woman, though you needn't
lny any greater stress on her in particular.
You know, Bullet, we 'don't know where we
may go to; " Oh! Lord, look down on Bullet
I mean the 'Squire and I and give us
grace (why don't you fire, ycu cursed fool ?
Do, that'&a good fellow) and the 'Squire
win ever prny. may we live so as to loot tor
ward (Bullet 111 give vou a pint of anole
jack the very minit I get back to the Major's,
h youi ii oniy nre quics; and may our hearts
be bound up with grace (why hi the name
of , don't you blow this brute's brains out
and be cursed toyou? " I'D lick you like thun
der, I will !) -f For all our past sins be merciful
(I'll Jet you off that quarter you owe me.
Bullet) that we may live a godly, righteous,
and sober, or at least moderate life pre
serve us, oh Lord." ,1 don't know whether
the old fellow could have gone on any longer,,
but I hadn't a chance to know, for Builet who
had got into a thick cover, drew upon the var
mint and put a ball clean through its bead.
The other one" scampered off as soon as he
heard the report and was hunted up the next
day and killed by ' Bill Winkle. - The very
moment tne doss ana Haines lound themselves
clear, down they both dropped clear gone.
The boss fainted, and so would old Haines
have done, but he couldn't; and besides -he
was so busily engaged in cursing Bullet and
calling for a drink of something, he- hadn't
time. - We had a bad time bringing the boss
to, and he appeared a good deal flighty when
we got mm so ne couia want home. .- As tor
Haines, he swore he'd set twoniggers to rub
bing him down with ile the very minit be got
hum, or - els .he'd be as stiff as a spavined
horse next day. When we arrived in town
we all went to the Major's, : but we couldn't
keep the bow long, for he took on dreadfully.
Some said he was crazy, some, said he. was
Wild drunk the Major said that he thought
perhaps, the freight had slightly turned his
brain ; whereupon old Haines, who was get
ting near about considerably tight said as how
that couldn't be, because the boss bad stood
the wear, tear and racket when the- fellow
came on from York to dun the boss for a bill
of paper as be owed to one in that eity, and
said he, "if be ould stand such a cursing as
that was, burn my skin if all the bears this side
ot the York una and west of the Aiocky Moun
tains, would be able to shake one single nerve
in his whole body !',' However, be the cause
what it may the boss ia clean-t-stark mad
and the schoolmaster has had to take his place.
'' "Jack "aboard" of a Horse.
I had scarcely gone a mile, when I met a
couple of jolly tars coming down the road full
gallop; and a short. distance .further on be
yond small gully, to ray surprise I saw my
nautical acquaintance of the Oregon, as be him
self would have phrased it, 'with his main top
sail back hove to ;' that is, with the bridle pul
led straight by the left hand, Which clutched
the pommel of the saddle; -while with the
right be" was hauling in the rein with all his
might - The steed seemed astonished by this
manoeuvre and with mouth wide open and
neck half bent be was starting at bis rider,
much in the manner as we may suppose of
Balaam s are expostulating with his nder. -
A more ludicrous picture than Jack Marlins
pike cannot be conceived ; he was drunk as a
piper : his lank lustre eyes reeling in their sock
ets, and the outside of his nose, and parts of
his cheek covered with snuff; and if Jack had
consulted stage effect , in begrimming bis. vis
age' be could not have improved the quemess
of his aspect:' r-?j -.

by the' head, and don't steer, well, and there is
a narrow channel ahead. : Besides, Ive got the
vessel in irons, and can t ey , or wear and
there's s devil of a sea running, and blast, me
if I dont think I shall founder before I can
get her head round.".. All this while he was
reeling "m the saddle to and fro. , 'Well Jack.'
said IV "slack up the right rein, -and get .the
horse s head straight and let bim nave, his

I passed ouward, and had nwarty reached

at full speed. 1 looked back, and. beheld Jack
bouncing along at a furious rate, and as he
passed me, I found that he bad fast ..hold .of
the saddle with one hand, and bad. clutched
the crupper with the other. The horse as he
came to the fort suddenly stopped, and. away
went Jack oyer his head, with a squelch to

I arrived some one had helped the fallen man
to rise and gam a bench at the door. ,

such a hold of him as nothing else can da
It makes the weak strong the timid brave
men of slow tongue become full of power and '

which takes him, as it were the idea he wish

makes him austere and lonely cruel to him

faltering in his toil never resting from his work. '
