AN AFTER DINNER DREAM.
I foil RJtWp the other evening after din
ner, I Dad been amino- alone, and the
nioro nerious husinuss of moat and pud
ding l aving been disposed of, I had sat
for soma time idly pitying with the
chooso, some looso dry rnmoly bils of
which woro lying about my plate. I foil
asleep and had a drenm.
I dream that in some slraniro unex-
plained maniior (vthon w3 over anything
ciplaiued in dreams ? ) my eyes becanie
all at oih'O endowed with microsuopic
power, and linppning to light upou a
oru-nb of oheewj, beheld a goodly rolony
of mites. 1 watched their movements.
As 1 looknd, tlieyi soomed to inorcaw in
silo, until I could distinctly sinjjo out
injivuhiuls from tho mass, I suv thuni
striviii)' and tlrngglin with etch oilier,
sonio of tho weaker gutting most cruelly
traiiiblod undor foot by others who march
over thorn : I saw them toiling with diili-
cully up tho caseous mountains, or rest
ing quietly in tho deep shady valleys, in
to which the inequalities on iho t'-urfuco of
tho choose were manguiliud. I saw some
of tho largest plumper-looking mites
hoarding up heaps of the rich matter that
formed at ouoo tho food nnd dwelling
plaoa ; aud I saw other leaner ones whn,
dig as deeply as they would into its sub
stance, never seouiod nblo to got enough
Then, as I looked, I thought I heard a
sound, like voices in the distant, and, by
dee-roes, my ears partaking of the super
natural powers . already enjoyed bv my
eyes, I caught their accents, and. found
that I could undurstaud the language of
the mites. j
" What a brave world is this of ours!"
cried an old fat mite whom I was watch
inn; (he spoko louder than the others, and
so his was the first word that I caught.)
"How bountiful nature bas been . in pla
cing us pou it. Here we have nil wo
want our food provided for us, and to
be had simply for the picking up. Had
we been cast upon the dreary void that
separates us from the nearest world to
this, we must have died from hunger.
Look over .yonder: what now appear to
you a tiny spot in the distance, once form
ed a portion of this world of ours. Now
it is millions of our longest measures from
us." - I
On hearing this, I could not for the
life of mo, retain from laughing, asleep
though 1 was. (Tho distant object that
he pointed out was one of the crumbs of
cheese that l bad scattered with my kmfo
some time befoe ; the croary void that
intervened was about two inohes of the
plata whioh chRnced,to be uncovered.
I listened aL'ain. The old mite was
discoursing learnedly about the atoms
that made up the universe. "Look where
we will." he said. ' we find on every
side, far, immeasurably far from us, small
specks to all appearance, but supposed to
be ia reality worlds like our own. It has
been said, indeed, that they possess in
habitants like ours ; but that we cannot
know. Couvulsions do occur, sometimes
that bring two worlds together, but
when this happens, those residing near
the spot whore the phenomenon occurs,
seldom survive the shook, w note nations
have been sometimes known to perish in
the collision ; somo being crushed to
death, and others thrown tar from any
habitable spot by the conoussion.
Then came a mite, : appearentiy much
older than he who had already spoken,
and declared he knew of his own know-
wleJtre, that the worlds around must, to
a great extent, resemble this. Loug, loos
ago, lie recollected mat me wnoie lormeu
one enormous mass, vast beyond al con
ception 3 that by degrees, with fearful
shocks, the worlds they saw . in the far
distance were, one by one, detached and
flow off into spuoo. lie was too young
when these disruptions happened, to know
much about it ; but he. pondered on it
since, and felt convinced that all existing
matter, their own world, and the thou
sands that they saw around them, once
formod one mighty whole 1
A derisive shout of laughter followed
this assertion. The thing was too pre
posterous to be believed. The younger
mites, especially, were boisterous in their
iooredulityj They were not goiug to be
tiken in by talcs like that they knew
bolter. Their was no other world besides
their own. The bit of cheese that they
dwelt on, was the only bit of oheeae that
ever was, or would or could be immutDio.
See what a size it was. No mite could
walk around in a life time. If what they
had been- told was true, how insigniiloant
would this great world of ours become,
compared to the enormous whole. How
utterly insignificant the individual mite.
No, uo, there was no other habitablu
. The old mite shook his head, and spoke
not. For my own part I felt half tempt
ed to convince the skeptics of their eiror
by scraping all the crumbs together .
my plate, aud 1 thus, onee '. more uniting
their scattered universe. . Bat I had
heard of the disasters that ensued when
ever these convulsions, as they called
them, did occur : and. havinn by this
time conceived an interest in the tiny dis-
fiutants, I spared them and continued
istening.. , .., ' - ,- ' .. . '
Come, now." exclaimed one of. the
incredulous vounir mites, - with an air of
one about to put a poser, "f Td hato
told us true, and every thing we see around
us is cheese like this we , live in ; if there
renllv exists as much cheese as would
make a thousand of our wovlds ; why
may not there be eveu thousand times
as much as that again ? Why may there
not be cheese enough in being to form
million, million Worlds all fit for mite,
like us, to live on, eh?" i
" Wby'not, indeed I" the aga replied.
"For my part I believe there U,"
ho I " There was not one
mite in tho whole community who didn't
fairly shako its liny sides with laughter
at the wild Rasertion. They all declared
the o!J mite must be In his dotage. They
kicked aud oull'od him cruelly, aud even
threatened to exnel him from the cheese
he stood on, and so compel him to find
out the truth of his own theory bv en
deavoring Jo make a pilgrimage to ono of
the distant worlds he spoke of,
Then, other mites came up to join In
the discussion. There was ono vi'.iohad!
been a groat traveller (Low proud the lit
tlo fellow was of his experience I ho had
been nearly half way round tho crumb of
choose they all rested on.) Ho astonish
ed his hearers by declaring that, in spots
1... 1 - l.-.l I i ' .
vimi i.u iinu vikiicii, mero were otijncta
visihlA in (he distaiiro utterly unlike (he
little spwks they saw from whew they
stood. Ono in tmrtictilar wns more than
iifly times as big as any they could see,
but, even thin bus nothing when compar-
ed with llio great World tliey lived in.
Mistaken niite Tho object that you
saw whs tho distant lump from which all
your pigmy Worlds were chakun I )
As to their being other bus of cheese,
inhabited besides their own, tho traveller
would not hear of it. It was true that
there were other miles dwelling in
distant portions of their World whoso
nmrniur tlitien-l in several ways from
their own. (His audience seemed sur
prised to hear that even this could be ;
but he had s;en them, so thore was no
disputing it.) Hut as for other worlds of
mites; the thing was too preposterous
-, Then cum another a mite of most
imposing aspect, and attended by a long
train of followers. 1 soon found out he
was the monarch of the oo.ony I was ob
serving. With royal condescension, tho
sovereign mite paused to inquire into the
subj'ict of discussion. On being told his
majesty urew worth, and vowed it Was
hiffli treason to suppose there could be
any other communities to covern than
the Well known and established nations of
their world' It was an insult to the dig
nity or the few favored mite who divid
ed tho sovereign sway among theai, to
think that there were others who in their
own spheres might be no less potent or
even more potent which whs a horrible
and blasphemous thought I) than them
selves. ' Bo, the poor mite who broached
the theory about olhor worlds was ordor
ed to recant on pain of death ; and the
fact was established unmistakably, by
royal edict, that there was no cheoso
could be no cheose, inhabited, but theirs.
Then I awoke, aroused from my after
dinner dream by an Italian boy beneath
my window grinding on bis organ "home
sweet home."' It chimed in well with
what 1 had been dreaming of. No place
like home I No poople liko oursulves,
no country but our own, no world but
the elube we live on. i No choose that
mitus can dwell in, but our own partiou

. A Good Stobi. We are kindly per
mitted to copy the following good nneo
dole from a private letter just received by
a rrentleman of thi city, from a brother
now in Nebrask. Tho Yankee referred
to ia the right kind of a man to deal with
the "border ruffians" in Kansas. We do
not remember to have seen this story
print. Here it is :
, You know tho test to which the Mis-
souiis subject all travellers who make
their appearauco at any of their ferries,
and ask to bo crossed into Kansas. Some
days since a slab-sided Yankee arrived
al one of tha Northern Misoouri landings
witn a long train of plunder of various
sorts. l!y way of tasting him, the ler-
ryman asked him what slock he had.
" Waul," say the Yankee, "I've got
two horses, a yoke of oxen, and two

auu protruding outwards. The tumor
was tifteon month in forming, and be
came at length so painful as to confine
the patient to hi bed. Tho ndviceof the
most prominent sure-eons was oblainod.
and in threo different consultations it was
deoided that the cutting away of the tu
mor would, in all probability, prove fatal
to tho patient. Tho intense sufferings of
the dootor caused him, however, to haz
ard tho operation, and at hi earnest so
licitation, Professor Washington, AtWe
and Wililmuk, and Dr. Durrah consented
to perform it. It took fifty five roiuutcs
to sever the tumor Iroiu the body. Chlo
roform was freely adminenturcd, aud
while the surgeons wore busily engaged,
asphyxia took place, and life seemed al
most extinct. The tongue of the patient
sunk into his throat, causing great agony,
but was finally hooked out. lie was then
somewhat resusciutod by pouring a quan
tity of brandy into hi mouth. '1 here
was but a Binglc incision mado, which ex
tended over lourteeo iuchoi. The large
vein were tied up, the tumor removed,
and the skin closed up. So low was the
ooudttion of the fiatient at times, that it
was feared he had expired. His state
wa extremely critical for ovoral days,
but within a week or two past he has
been able to leave his room and ride out.
