Epitaph on an Honest Man.
Honey, for tomb-stones, is but vainty ypent,
An honest tuon requires no monument;
CoTei hisbody with (urf or stone,
It matten nought, to him it Is ill our;
Hiinanieiaentertdin the book of lite,
lie lives with God.he's done with carnal strifo;
Cut yet iJ.e uorM would count it a neglect,
To stint the dead of decent, due respect.
The Twelve Pound "Chunk."
OR;
OR; A Miner "Taken in."
A returned California", relates ;lie
following good one: The landlord ol
a hotel, built of boards, and located
near the Tekulk Diggings was present
ed by his wife with a line twtlvp pound
toy, which coming to the ears of a
wsg, he circulated the story that the
host found a "twelve pound chunk,"
which ran like wild tire through the
place, and caused quite an ext itement.
A few weeks afterwards a miner from
another quarter having heard of the
twelve pound 'chunk,' arrived at the
hotel, and at once made application to
the landlady for lodging. Her husband
being absent she attended to the guest,
when the lollowing convention took
place, which should be prefaced by the
remark that the story had exploded
several days before his arrival, and the
landlady had enjoyed the sell, with the
rest:
It wa9) our husland,ma'am, w asn't
it, who pot the twelve pound ( hunk?"
"tie had some help, 1 Lelieve, re
plied she, with a sly laugh.
"Yes, I s'pse 6o. Where was he
digging?''
"Oh, that's a secret."
'Yes, I s'pose it is," ic'ilieJ the
miner. 'He thinks he'll get another
mere, aon t lie?"
. "I don't know what he thinks, but
I know he won't.'
"I shouldn't think it imj roLillt
though it's possible."
'So they say."
n:-
The miner here paused awhile, and,
at last, alter some retlection, he said
'I s'pose the chunk's gone aint it?"
"Oh, no, it's in the oilier room.
Would you like to see it?"
'Well I should; but tain'l laying
around loose is irf
Not exactly," said the landlady,
throwing open the door, "for there it is
in the cradle."
The miner bent over, when a rair ol
chubby lists were extended, and giving
the jolly landlady one look, he le!t lor
patts unknown.
A London Advertisement.
The following.advertisrment appears
in one of the London newspapeis.. it
is unique, and we commend it to the
notice of the advocates of women's
rights in this couutry:
Wanted by a young lady, ftged 10,
jf pleasing countenance, good figure,
agreeable maimers, general information
and varied accomplishments, who has
studied everything, from the creation
to crochet, a situation in the family ol
a gentleman. She will take the head
of his table, manage his household,
scold his servants, nurse his babies
when they arrive check his trades'
men's bill, accompany him to the thea
tre, or in walking or riding, cut the
leaves ot his new books, sew on his
buttons, warm his slippers, and gener
ally make his miserable life happy.
Apply in the first place by letter to
Louise Caroline, Linden Grove, am
afterwards to papa upon the premises.
Wedding ring No. 4, small."
OCT "Helloa, Cap'n when wn9 you
elected?" inquired a wag tli3 other da)
of a fellow who was driving a pair oi
horses that looked as if they had been
fed on hoops for the last six nio;il!i3.
"Elected to what?" answered the lel
low with the pair of Rozinantes.
"Overseer of the poor," replied the
wag.
Ga Iang, git up,' and the official de
parted. CCTThey are about to stait a tlail
paper at Chicago to oppose the tem
perance law, and advocate the interest
of the whisky seller., saloon keepers
and hard drinkers generally. It is to
be called "The Cocktail Advocate and
Free hisky Journal." The Chica
go Tribune says it is to Le conducted
on purely spirituous principles and the
chief burden of its scng will be, 'Oth!
whisky is the tiling entirely!"
FiasT Gun. A boy got his grand
father's gun and loaded it,but was afraid
to fire; he however liked the fun of
loading,and so he put in another charge,
but still was afraid to lire, lie kept on
charging, but without firing, until he
had got six charges in the old piece.
His grandmother, learning his temeri
ty, smartly reproved him and grasping
the old continental, discharged it. The
recoil was tremendous throwing the old
lady on her tack! She promptly slrug
gled to regain her feet, but the bov criid
out, lay still granny, there are five
more charges to go off yet'"
An editor out west gives the follow
ing notice: 'Our purse is lost! The
finder is respectfully requested to return
it, being careful not to disturb its con
tents, w hich were a brass rule, a piece
of leaf tobacco nicely twisted, and a
very good leather string.'
Marrying Acboss the River. A
correspondent of the Staunton Specta
tor states that die Rev. M. Brown, ol
Bath county, Virginia, married a couple
a few days since across the river that
j?, the parson was on one side and the
bride groom and his dulcinea on the
other. This mode was resorted to on
account t?f the water being impassible.
The "license was thrown across the
Clream by the bridegroom, after having
wrapped it tightly arcund a stone.

Sir The Cherry Pectoral is much inqui
ted after. Several of our best Physicians
have used it, three of them in their own casu
ami always with the happiest eirccts. Thu
numerous patent medicines always befora
tlein, lead to incredulity in regard to every
new remedy; anil it is in.lv after undoubted
evidence of value in any article, that anything
like a gi' ne nil confidence can be excited.
Tie unrivalled excellence of this combina
tion ol Hgents, (in theChrry Pectoral) proved
brvoud ::avil by repeated trial under their own
observation, has compelled medical men to
proclaim abroad its usefulness. It is beyond
all doubt the br-st general remedy wc have fo r
the Pulmonary AfVectionsof this climate a t
the tame time sedative and expectorant it
r-re combination of properties.
in Impe that it will prove its own reward,
I subscribe myself.
