Superstition. A Bina;ular instance
of popular superstition Occurred a few
days since, at ileycrosa, ia tho west of
the county of CoYk, and had well
nigh been attended with serious con
sequences. The tody of an American
captain, whose vessel 'hatj been wreck
ed on the coaBt, was recently washed
ashore, and buried in tho Mevcrosa
churchyard. His friends, . however,
desired to remove the romains to the
United States, and proceeded to dis
inter them for that purpose. Tho
peasantry have a traditional belief
that tho removal of a body that has
been tor some time buried causes ex-
been tor some time buried causes ex
traordinary motahty in the locality
lor the next twelve months. htuI t.W
therefore recard such a iirnrAflinn-

w. ..w IHI njr v,Ml
unexpected opposition, which every
cltbrt failed to overcome. Tho people,
filled with excitement, rushed to the
graveyard armed with every weapon
upon which they could lay hands, and
drove the strangers forcibly away.
The parish priest interfered, and
attempted to persuade them that their
alarm was groundless, but they would
not listen to him, and they persisted
in refusing to let the grave be disturb
ed. So bent are they upon prevent
ing it that they havo sentinels watch
ing day and; night,' lest the object
should be effected by surprise. :
A DTATEN ISLAND JCHV. At ft
. ei . t - . . :
period when Judgo Ambrose Spacer
was on tho bench of tho Supremo
Court of New York thiB was upwards
of forty -five years agrj there was on
Staten Island a lawless set of men en
gaged in villainous wrecking and
kindred pursuits to such an extent as
to lower the morality and standing of
the island in universal estimation
Judgo Spencer, presiding at a circuit
held there, was trying a man who had
committed some gross and high crime
Tho evidence was clear in proof of
his guilt, and his honor charged
strongly against him. Tho jury, how
ever, brought in a verdict of not guil
ty. The largo and commanding fig
ure of the judge, rose and towered
itself to its full height. i
"Prisoner," said his" honor, in tho
severest and loudest tones, "I havo to
address you in two directions; firstly,
you havo had a most extraordinary
escape fromcondign punishmentwhich
you deserved; and secondly, you may
bo assured the timo will como when
you will bo tried at another bar,
where, it is some satisfaction - even
now to know, there will be no Staten
Island jury to acquit you."
Liberal. Not many years since,
in "West Plymouth, N. H., it used to
be the custom for the schoolmaster to
board "round," among the" families of
nis pupils, so as to save exnense
Sometimes, of course, the days didn't
como out quite even ; there would be
eight and one-half days at one house
and nine at another. One man, who
was notorious' for his meanness. Just
before tho schoolmaster began his din
ner, said to him: "Mr. - I sup
pose by rights that your' time is up
just about half way through this din
ner. That s as near as I km mako it,
and I've calculated pretty close. But
I don't wiBh to be small about it, and
you can eat just about as much as
you would for ordinary."
Said one Radical to another
the other day: c- : ! ';;
"You ve, heard of the fellow
who died at his post, have you
"Yes," answered his friend.

Burr and Hamilton. Dr. Nott,
speaking of Burr and Hamilton, said-
Burr, above all men whom I ever
know, possessed the most consummate
tact in evading, and covering up the
arguments of his opponent. His
great art was to throw dust into the
eyes of the jury, and make them bo
liove that there was noither force nor
sense, nor any thing else, In the argu
ments of the opposite counsol. He
never met a position ' or answered an
argument, but threw around them the
mist of sophistry, and thus weakened
their force. He was the princo of
plausibilities. Ho was always on the
rigut side, (in his own opinion. and
always perfectly confidont,
; Hamilton, on the other hand, allow
ed to tho arguments of his opponents
all tho weight that could be fairly
claimed lor them, and attacked and
demolished them with tho club of
Hercules. He would never engage
in a cause unless ho believed he was
on the side of justice; and he ofton
threw into the scale of his client the
whole weight of his personal charac
ter and opinion. His opponents fre
quently complained of the undue in
fluence he thus exerted upon the court.

Her aim had been too true. She

he fell at her feet a corpse. They

Some time ago! Huntsville, Ala-
was under a municipal law, permittinr
only druggists ; to sell intoxicatin?
liquors, and then . only by a written
order from a physician. It happened
on a cold, rainy day, that a fast chap,
whose name might' have beon John
son, adrumtaor for a New York dry
goods house,' dropped into Huntsville,
and, after stopping at the hotel, wrote
a note and sent a little darkey to the
drug store for a bottle of whisky
The boy return6d minus the whiskyj
but with the information that a physi
cian's order would brine: it. It onlv
required a moment to add "II: D." to
Johnson's name attached to the note,
and the whisky was forthcoming.1
The next day, in conversation with
Johnson, the druggist addressed him
as "doctor.'""'."'' :
'Beg pardon '' said Johnson; "but I
am' no doctor.," '. ' ' "''-;' "V'".
