Too Much Motnl for John Bull.
Recently, whon tho United States
war steamer, Wyoming, was atSimon'a
Bay, Capo of Good Hope, several of
that vessel's officers on shoro met a
number of English officers from an
English vessol of war in tho bay. Ono
of tho Englishmen, putting a circular
piece of glass in front of ono of his
eyes, asked, in an ironically obsequious
"Officer, how many guns do you
Six," replied tho officer of tho Wy
"Oh! Wo carry eleven," said tho

"Alinnt eisrhtv Bounds." answered
tho -Englishman, inflating himself with
a mixture of wind and pride.
"Well," replied tho olhcer ot tno
Wyoming, "one of our guns, aiono,
throws one hundred and sixty-eight
pounds : that's double your whole broad
side." .. .
Tho Englishman immediately coi
apsed, struck tho elevation of his head,
and walked off.
