Crossing the Atlantic in a Row-Goat.
A man has performed the feat of crossing
the Atlantic in a row-bout in. thirty days.
It was done in this wise: When the packet
ship Devonshire, from New York, was one
day out at sea, Capl. Hovey delected symp
toms of small pox in one of his steerage
passengers. Ho immediately had tho stern
boat hanging from the davits, made perfectly
secure and comforiable, removed the man
into ii, erected over him a tarpaulin house,
land in that boat the man crossed the Allan
jtic, not leaving it until he reached quaran
tine. Ho was fed from the captain's table,
j recovered completely from tho disease, was
well and hearty when landed, perhaps more
so than his fellow-prssengcrs, and as the
result of Capt. Hovey 's precaution, no oilier
case of small-pox occurred on board the
Devonshire The man can boast or being
the first person thai ever crossed the Ailumic
in a row-boni.

it in beaver skins. Centli mrn. continued
the magistrate, addressing the bystanders,
Injins aim likely to lie when they owe white
men. out while men will lie, when they
irade wiih .ihe Injins. This is the experi
ence of "my court." Proceed, gentlemen,
with this case.
The attorney for Tom Dale proceeded to
make, cut his case. Dale swore that his
debt was "just, true and unpaid." He then
introduced a witness to prove that Little
Chubby had only caught ten beavers in the
last month and that he had sold them to
deponent. The Indian had no witnesses,
and the cose was thus lull v made out.
The attorney remarked, addressing the
court "may it please your honor, 1 claim a
judgment for my client there is no defence
except an averment ol Chubby, and this the
court can't regard."
"Gentlemen, said our magistrate, '1 ain 1

Moneycries, "Mr. Marshal, hand me that

the book, and addressing Moneycries, re

He then proceeded to state that Little
Chubby had come to his house, and he of
fered to buy from him ten beaver skins.
Chubby declined si Ping them, as he had
promised them to Mr. Dale to pay a debt ol
twenty dollars due him. He saw Chubby,

I'll Call Around and Pay. What a
world of woe Is contained In these few words
to the poor artisan and mechanic. "I'll call
around nnd pay, says the rich man to
avoid the trouble of going to his desk to get
the necessary funds, and the poor mechanic
is obliged 10 go home to disuppoint his work
men and all who depend upon him for their
duo. It is an easy motter to work the only
real elorv in this life is an independent idea
to be able to sustain youself by the labor 01
your own hands, and it may be imagined
what crushing force there is in "1 11 can
around und pay" to the laboring man who
depends upon that pay lor assistance , ll
those who could pay would pay at onco, it
would pluce hundreds and thousands In a
condition to do likewise and prevent much
misery and disiress.

A bond of gipsies lately landed at New

Europe by an emigrant ship. They are
now encamped, with their covered wagons,
in the neighborhood of Hobokon. and re

peculiar physical features of their strange
race, having slender figures and an abun

business of linkers, and the females cook
their meals by fires made in the open air.

illustration of it, that occurred during the
first survey of the rond, near Monroe.
While the engineers were running a line in
that quarier. one of these landed gentry re
fused them permission to effect their pur
pose, through a certain field of his. ; They
did not notice his warning or his threats, but
one morning, just as they had assembled
with their tools on the forbidden ground, a
ferocious bull rushed upon them, roaring like
one of his Bashan progenitors, with tail,
erect and head lowered in a very threatening
manner. The farmer had placed him there
in ambush the night before, and now stood
near, watching the issue of the conflict. A
very short survey of the animal was nee Jed
by the engineers, who forthwith "ran a line''
to the fence wiih unexampled directness and
dispatch. The bull, thus left master of the
field, amused himself wiih a stampede among
the deserted instruments.
A parely was then held, and the profes
sionals declared that if the bull was not re
moved, they would shoot him; and some
shooting irons being soon produced for tho
purpose, the farmer gave in, and the bull
was taken out. It seemed, however, that
the animal 'fed fat the ancient grudge' he
bore the profession, for when the first loco
motive appeared on the scene of his defeat,
he lay in ambuscade for the unconscious
engine, and rushing towards it. they met in
full career, and his bullship was converted
into fresh beef on the spot!
CIIINE8E IN CALIFORNIA.
We have several timet 6poken of the
Chinese in the California population. The
last arrival it noticed, aa below, in a San
Francisco paper. The whole guild of shoe
makers from some Chinese city must have
flitted at once. They can easily, however,
adopt new tiades; (or travellers represent
the Chinese as possessing more aptness and
facility of adaptation, than any other Asiat
ics. We believe that it has been mention,
ed in the Gazette, that a tract has been pur
chased in California for the Celestials, and
that they are giving their attention to agri
culture: " She brings 223 Chinese, a list of whom
is before us. VV hat a c flection of Amungs
and Atiugs, aud Achoys I Of 223 names,
190 commence with the letter A, usually ter
minating with a G. or a Y, and in evey in
stance two syllables in length. But the
most singular circumstance connected with
this cargo of Celestials is that out of the
whole number 221 are shoemakers, one doc
tor, and one a merchant. There are Af
rong, Allung, Aunchung, Ampung. Apung.
Chingrhung, Ranching, and a hostof brother
hoods, who smile wiih their new moon eyes
as though the world was made of rainbows,
and a haw how the chief end of man.

he has 110 flme to be shaved during tho day,
he will come late at nighi.' .
The President: -You. ought not, ' at all

were cries issuing from your house as if you
had been committing murder.'

The Barber: 'Indued, I did, in the spirit

The President jmd Merlon together : 'And
why?'
The Barbei : 'The whole affair it this:
M. Merlon is not to be trusted, as he does
not pay ready money; he use 10 cheat mo
in tho number of shaves for which he owed
me; when he had twelve, he used to say he
had only six, so that 1 lost both my labor
and my time; at last I devised a mode of
keeping a reckoning not to be disputed.'
The President : 'How was that?'
The Barber: 'Every time that I shave
him, I make a noich on his cheek, general
laughter; when we count up, 1 look at his
cheek, so many notches, so many shaves;
renewed laughter; but the other day the
razor turned in my hands, I made the figure

out and disturb the neighborhood.'

was condemned to pay the full penally, and
tho President advised him to renounce, in

The Place for the Girls A for
mer citizen of Terra Haute writes to the
Courier as fo lows, In regard to the scarcity
of marriageable females in Oregon. It's a
long way to go for a husband, but a good
ono is worth even a journey to the Pacific:
The male population hero is deplorably
predominant. Girls under fourteen years
of age- frequently become 'heads pf fami
lies;' widows are not Buffered to remain long
in weeds, and ihe marshals raport in a pop
ulation of 13,000 only one old maid.
Women of any age, nation or condition,
who will come here, are assured of profita
ble and proper employment, and in due
course of time appropriate husbands.
Drinking Healths. The practice of
drinking healths is ono of great antiquity.
ihe ancient Hebrews were in the habit ai
the festive board of adopting this token of
good will. A large cup was then used, and
and the father, or he who presided at the ta
ble, first drank and then passed it. The
Romans imitated the custom, rirst they
drank to the nine Muses, or to tho three
Graces, and oiher objects which made an
uneven number, concluding by drinking to
their mistresses a bumper fur every letter in
their name. Past and Present.
Didn't want uer Stockings Dieted.
We heard a good story told of 0 rustic youth
and country girl who sat facing each oilier
at the supper table of a husking party. The
youth smitten with the charms ot the beau
tiful maid, only vented his passion in sly
looks, now and then touching Putty's toe,
with his foot, under the table. At that time,
there being no Bloomers, the girl either
fearful for the puriiy of her stockings or de
termined to muke the youth express what
he appearad so warmly to feel, bore with
his advances for n whilo in silence, when she
cried out 'Look hero, if you love me, why
tell me so ; but don't dirty my stockings!'
Recreations. Let your recreations be
moderate, manly, seasonable and lawful ;
the use of recreation is to strengthen you

there some so rigid or so timorous, that they
avoid all diversions, and dure not indulge
in lawful delights for fear of offending.
