cinity is a fortune-teller, in tho act of un
folding the future to an anxious dupe, and a
doctor, decorated with a siring of human
teeth around his neck, extending below his
waist, while nls box ol drugs hangs bclore
him. Then an aged woman may be seen,
with feet three inches long, seated under an
umbrella, mending old clothes, while a
nusser by, wanting a button sewed on. re
pairs to her, and remunerates her with a
cosh." Not far distant, a leprous beggar
exhibits his disgusting sores, and rattles two
pieces of bamboo, to attract attention.
Suppose the air filled with the noises, cries,
and vociferations of these various venders,
and of the constantly changing throng of
human beings, and some slight conception
may be lormed of Canton, on approaching
to Hog-lane, uoing through this thorough
fare, which is occupied by spirit-shops, and
stores of all kinds', announcements, such as
the following, arrest the eye: "Ingli is ere
spok;" "Jack, all ; ting ere fin will;" with
others of a similar orthography. This street
is frequented by sailors, and being the re
sort of the very lowest and- most depraved,
Jack often geis robbed, and becoming crusty,
uses his fists, when a general scrimmage
takes place. Dublin University Magazine.

five years of oge. soon went to sleep in her

ears were anxiously listening for the roll of

In order . to prevenu.hcrsalf frorn. giviFg

to the objects around her. . Tbe,apunment
was vust, and lighted more by the glare.. ol'
Rili,t hu ilia Hiriu. nnndln. stuck into
a filthv lin candlestick, that stood on one of
the lontf tables. Two or three huge beams
stretched across, leaving a space miea wun
fliuing shadows above. From these depend
ed a rusty gun or two, a sword, several
bags, hanks of onions, cooking utensils, &c.
There were very few signs iliai ihe.house
was much visited, though a pile of empty
wine bottles lay in one corner-. The land-
lady, sat some distance from the hrcpluce
wurMier iwo sons.'who Tuld ilteir heads" to
gether, and talked in whispers, , '
.. Mrs. Martin began to feel uneasy. The
idea entered her mind that she had fallen
into a den of robbers. The words "C'esl
elle" it is sho which were all she heard
of the whispered conversation, contributed
to alarm her. The door leading into the
road was left ajar; and for a moment she
full an inclination to start up and escape
on foot. But she was far from any othor
habitation; and if ihepoople of the house
really entertained any evil designs, her at
tempt would only precipitate . tho cutasiro
phe. Sho was resolved on patience, but
listened attentively for the approach of her
friends. All sho heard, however, was the
wind and the rain, which had begun to fall
jusi nfior her arrival. About two hours
passed in this uncomlortable way. At length
the door was thrust open, and a man, drip-

"A fine night for walking!" cried he,,
shaking himself like a dog who has crawled
out of a pond. '
"What have you to give mel Salul,
messeurs el mesdemes. I am wet to the

bottle ol wine."
The hostess, in a surly, sleepy tone, told
her eldest son to serve the gentleman: and

I will wait a little longer," was the re
ply; which elicited a shrug of contempt
The red-haired man finished plT his hot
tie of wine, and then said:
.- ouuw ma a luuui, tuu uuiuu,
sleep Here to-night."',
Mrs. Martin thought ns he pronounced
these words he cast a protecting glance to
wards her; and she felt less repugnance ai
iho idea of passing the night at that house.
When, thcrelore, the red-haired man, alter
a polite bow, went up the stairs, she said,
that as her mends had not arrived, tney
might as well show her to a bed-room. '.
1 thought it would come to that at last,
said the landlady. "Pierre, take the lady's
trunks up stairs." "
In a few minutes, Mrs. Martin lound her
self a.1 one in a spacious room, with a large
fire burning on tho hearih. Her hist care,
after putting the child to bed, was to exam
ine tho door. Ii closed only bv a latch.
There was no boll inside. She looked
around for something to barricade it with
and perceived a heavy chest of drawers -Fear
cava her strepgih. ,, She half lifted,
half pushed it against the door. Not con
tent with this, she seized a table to increase
the strength of her defence. The leg was
broken, and when she touched it, it foil
with a crash to the floor. A long echo went
sounding through ihe house, and she felt
her heart sink within her.' But the echo
died away, and no one came; so she piled
the fragments of the table upon the chest oi
drawers. Tolerably sutishod In this direc
tlon, she proceeded to examine the windows
They were all protected with iron bars. -
Ihe walls were papered, and alter carelui
examination, seemed to contain no signs
of a secret door. ' '
Mrs. Martin now sank down on a chair to
reflect on her position. As was natural, al
ter having taken all these precautions, lite
idea suggested itself that they might be ru-

, Mrs. Martin was occupied only with lw
ideas; first she reflected on the extraordinary
delusion by which she had been led 13 see
enemies in the people of ihe house, and a
friend in this red-haired man ; and, secondly
ii struck her. that as he. could fear no re
sistance from a woman, ho might push aside
the chairs that were in the way, regardless
of the noise, and thus avoid the snare that
was laid for him. Once even she thought
that whilst her attention was strongly direct
ed to one spot, he had made his exit, and
was leaning over her; but she was doceived
by a flickering shadow on the opposite wall

being over, the time of action having arrived,
every thing seemed to pass with magical
rapidity. Ihe robber thrust his head forward.-
Mrs. Martin bent down.-' There
was a half-chokod cry the sound of the
knife falling on the floora convulsive

Mrs. Swisshelm on Dancing. Tho fol
lowing remarks are from the piquant pen
bf Mrs. Swisshelm : ;
'One curious fact we have observed
with regard to dancing. This is, the more
deeply a church or individual professor is
steened in the snirit of monevornhbinfr. nr
! intemperance.the greater their abhorrence of
dancing. This appears to be a kind of con
venient scapegoat on which the sins of the
congregation are laid, that they may be
borne in the wildnerness. Lot the preacher
at any time submit to a gag which shall, on
some special occcasion, forbid his opening
his mouth lor the dumb, or reproving a
wealthy distiller, or fat usurer, who grinds
the poor to pay pew rent; and forthwith we
get a fresh anathema on dancing. " Show us
a wealthy deacon s wife who will haggle
with a widow loget washing dono for twelvo
and a half cents a dozen, uud than pay her
in trade, or give two dimes and four cop
pers for tweniy-five cents, nnd wo will show
you one who will take a spasm over the in
iquities of a cotillion. We never knew the
rule to fail, and have watched its workings
so long that whenever any ono begins a
lecture on dancing we suspect htm or her
of being n -worshipper of mammon. Old
Christian, in his long journey, danced for
joy but the man with the muck-rake was too
busy. Nothing appears better calculated to
contend wiih the hard, money-loving spirit
of our age, than music and dancing. It
tends to melt this hard crust which iho dust
of ledgen forms around the hearts of our
people, and there is no place to which we
should go with a subscription paper for n
charitable object with more hope of succt .-
than a social party where all wore danc ng
to the music of two good violins and a trom
bone." Newspaper Debts. In a caso recently
tried in Philadelphia, ' where a suit was
brought by the Germantown Telegraph a
gainst a subscriber for iwelve yeurs' sub
scription,' and tho defendant pleaded the
statute ol limitation, the Judge charged the
. 1 1 r 1 I f t a
jury, as reported oy mo rnuaaeipnia pa
pers, as follows ; .
"Judge Kelly charged the jury that, when
a person subscribes for a paper, and gives
directions where it shall be left, ho Is bound
to pay for it, unless ho prescribes tho time
ror which it shall be leu. II a suuscnoer
wishes to discontinue ihe paper, it is his
duty to square his accounts and then - give
nonce ol a discontinuance. 11 a paper is
sent to a person through the post office, and
he takes it out, he is bound to pay lor n.
If a subscriber changes his residence, it
does not follow thai the carrier must take
notice of it; and a delivery of the paper at
the 1 laco where he was first directed lo leave
it is a delivery lo the subscriber, unless the
publisher receives notice lo discontinue or
send it to another place. The . statute of
limitation did not affect the. case, as the de
fendent had paid something on account in
June, 1844. Verdict, for plaintiff 922,59.
