For' everal days pieviotis lo the

When the penny-pott entered the

One of his shop-mates at last i'olun

consented. tliouh he doubted a result so

A boisterous shout followed, while
poor Timothy, disappointed almost be
youj endurance, and vexed at tho mer
riment of his shop-mates, stood, some
miniiles, transfixed to the stool. Josh
picked up the Valentine, and exhibited
it tl aro ind. It contained a picture
of one of the fattest kind of Ethiopia's
datiliters, whose nose hid been well

word?:

" (V jr.
Wid (! arms I'll hug you; you hab nuffin
to Mir,"
After this poetry lnd been read by
Jojj'i, in the most emphatic manner,
the workmen commenced running'
Timothy about having a black sweet
her.'; but he averred that he hadn't
talked to a black woman while he had
been in town. It was then charged
thJ a 'cullo'd pusson' had met him
sont'iwhere and fallen in love with him,
and, having chosen him for her Valen
tine, it necessarily followed that some
day she would be his wedded wife.
This somewnat roused tho 'dander of
Trmothy, and he 'swow'd' that he
would never speak to a nigger woman
again, if he died by it.
. A;ter taunting the poor fellow for an
hoar or so, Josh Id slip the secret. He
told Tim that his shopmates had sent
him his first 1 valentine to sound his
love affairs, and that if he did not
wish them to have a laugh at him, ho
miut when he received a valentine in
future, let no one see its cont- nls. He
will 110 doubt profit by the advice.
.ihe colored lauy was placed in
clnrge of Josh, who has no doubt by
this time forwarded her to some love
sick swain, to bring him to his senses
or make him love his sweetheart more
The richly embossed envelope with
the 'poppies' ail unharmed, was placed
upon the wall, above Tim Snub's
worlj-brnch, lo remind him daily of
Ul.sMj:iw alenUnt." .
Father and Child.
The Chicago Press relates the fol
lowinsr. affecting incident during the
trial of Green, the Chicago banker,for
the murder of his wife:
' "The prisoner appeared in his place
accompanied by his little boy ot six
years, who sat upon his fathers knee,
the only being in the world who had
afleetion enougU tor him to exhibit it
that dark hour. The Iittlo fellow is a
bright and handsome child, possessing
his father's outline of head and expres
sion cf feature, and yet in the winning
innocence of childhood. The simi
larity and contrast between the two,was
striking and painful. At some allusion
of the prosecuting counsel to the dis
memberment of his family, that stern
old man pressed his little boy to his
heart and bowing his head over him,
wept in bitter agnny. The lad unable
to realize the position of his parent,yct
with tho sympathy which distinguishes
childhood, burst into tears, and with
infantile woneler looked from his fath
er to the multitude and the speaker.
It was a sad and touching siht.
A'' Cask of Real Distrkss. A
Philadelphia correspondent wtites:
'A police officer, on Saturday mor
ning, observed a decent-looking man
take a small piece of beef off a butch
er's stall in Ihe market, and conceal il
under his cloak which he wore. The
official notified the butcher of the fact,
but the litter said that so decent a man
must have been driven by want to the
commission of the act. The officer
determined lo watch the needy man,
and following him for a considerable
distance, observed him going into a
house in the upper part of the city.
The policeman knocked at the door,
which was opened by the man, who,
upon seeing the badge, begged the for
mer 'for God's sake not to arrest him.'
Tiie officer went into Ihe house, where
he found a scene of destitution, in the
midst of which were four shivering
children eagerly devouring the raw
meat. ' This dark picture is somewhat
relieved by the fact, that the officer re
turned to the butcher, and told him of
the sight he had witnessed, when the
kind-hearted fellow gathered up among
his friends Gfteen dollars in money, and
a large basket of provisions, and sent
them to the famishing family."

going to discord all the foreign eliments
in our government (by the way have the
barn door paiuied over with some other
color - beside Spanish brown. I flont
like anything Spanish) The governoi
has made a lick at the foreign msliiia

told nearly all the pictures are painted
by the old masters as they are called
and these I am told are withot excen-

the antipathy of the inhabitants to alco

ated ei follows:
Mr. Patterson, who has it sometime

leased a tavern at Mt. Pleasant, called
the Van Kirk House, which it was hie
intention to open this week. Not know
ing the antipathy of the iuluui'aou of
that burg to wbiiiky, he made extensive
preparations lo start a bir.and according
ly engaged Mr. Daniel Lbaytaux to
haul a loud of liquors from Covington to
Mt. Pleasant. This was done lust Sun
day night, and the gouds were stored i u
a harbor's shop in Ilia village belonging
to Mr. Labayraux, In the meantime, it
having leaked out among the temper
ance population that such a load had ar
rived, much excitement prevailed, and
a party of men and women paid a visit
late on Sunday night to the tavern, but
not Hading any of the stuff-, they retir
ed.
The next morning however, it became
known tbat the liquor was at the bar
ber's shop, when a inixtd mass of men
aud women, numbering some eighty or
one hundred persons, armed with axes
and other implements, made an onslaught
upon the premises, which having enter
ed, they commenced staving in the var
ious barrels mixing the liquor iu style
never intended by manufacturers.' Mr.
Labaytaux was, at the time, harnessing
his horses in a stable hard by, when be
heard the rumpus, aud hastening to the
jcena of action was met by an infuriated
Amazon, armed Tilh an ax, who aimed
a blow at his head, which he very car
rowly dodged. He was then seiteJ,
dragged ioio the store, keockea down
upuu the 3 nor, which, at the lime, was
three or four iuches deep nitb the liquor
vthith'had flowed from the barrels, .and
only by putting forth an extraordinary
degree of muscular strength was he an.
ablcd to escape from his male and female
assailants. ' ' '"
A process has been issned for the ar
rest of the rioters by the Police Court
Cincinnati; the Magistrates of the neigh
borhood having refused to issue warrants
for that purpose. V e understand, also,
that Mr. Labaytaux has the names of
several females whom he recognized en
gaged in Ibe work of destruction, who
at tbs time shouted, "Horrah for the
MainLiquor Law!" "Down with Ihe
alcoholic poison!'' fur lie arrest of whom
