Popping the Question.
Jedediah Dodge waa dead in 1ot with
ha beauteous Sallj Hammond, but on.
Jog to an unconquerable feeling diffi
dence. nad never been able to screw
up bin courage to the (ticking point eb
eolotely requisite to enable bim to in
form her of his predilectione. Three
several times be had. dressed up in his
Sunday-go-to-meeting filings," end
made his way to her father's bouse, de
termined this time to do or die. Bbl,
nnluckily, his courage oozed away, and
became 'small by degrees and beatm
fully less,' as the politicians says, i'il,
wban ha was fairly in her presence, be
wee barely able to remark that it waa a
warm evening. Selly got tired at length
of his old reiterated observation, and
resolved to help him out of his predic
ament, for, like a, true woman she had
not failed to perceive ,what Jedediah
was trying to come at, but couldn't.
For the fourth time Jedediah came, but
did not succeed any better. Sally coin
snenced her attack by informing him
that Mary Sumers, an intimate Inend,
was going to be married.
You don't say so,' said Jedediah, that
being the only idea that occurred, to
him, except one, and that he didn't dare
live utterance to.
Yes,' said Sally, 'she's going to be
married next week. It. seems rather
queer that she should be married before
me. considering she's a year younger
Jedediah'a heart leaped up in his throat
hut ha didn t venture to say anything.
There was pause.
Jedediah,' resumed' Sally, after a
hesitation, 'I'll tell you something, if
yon'll promise certain true that you
won't never tell anybody.'
No, I won't,' said Jededian, stoutly,
proud of the confidence reposed in him.
It isn't much after all.' said Sally,
casting down her eyes ; 'only a dream.
and I don t know whether 1 ought to
tell you, after all, though, to be sure,
there was something about you in it.'
'Do tell me, pleaded Jedediah, Ms
cnriosity overcoming his busbfullaess
ia a degree.
'But I'm afraid you'll tell after all.'
No, I won l, certain true. . I hope 1
nay be horse-whipped if I do.
'Then don't look at me, Jedediah,
l 1 can't tell it I dreamed that you
and I I nsver shall be able to tell-
that you and I were going to be married
the day before Mary Sumers!
Jedediah started 'as if struck by a
shock from a galvauic battery, and
Sows will, by gosb, if you'll only
say the word I'
Of course Sally was asstonished at
this sudden application of her dream,
and could not believe he waa inearu
est. At length she yielded her con
sent and her dream was verified at the
alter in less than a week.

The Wool Crop.
There is likely to be an active com
petition for choice lots of the new clip
of woot, bl manuUctuieie, it is Slid,
cannot afford to give very high prices,
The flew York Post haa the following
on the subject of the trade and prices:
"Some iota have already been sold of
Ohio sew wool at 20 cents to 45 per
pound, including all grades; and of New
York State, which is. hardly so clean at
Ohio wool, at 20 cents to 40 cents. The
quality is, however, very limited.
About 200 bales of Syrian wool, not very
clean, have just been sold at 23 cents,
and bo me Buenos Ayres at 9 cents for
unwashed and 25 to 26 for washed. The
stock of foreign wool is large, and con
silts principally of Buenos Ayres.
"There continues to arrive smallpar
sals of wool of California growth, Which
sells readily at 15 a 17 cents per pound,
and is found very fit for carpets. There
is no doubt but that the supply will in
fiease and will thake the place, to some
extent, of foreign carpet wools. Aus
tralian fine wools are imported herein
small quantites, but these do not come
in contact with home-grown wools,
which are mostly of low to rnediam
grades, A repeal of the wool dutie
would increase the consumation of Aus
tralian wool and give au impulse to the
home manufacture, at present crippled,
of fine woolen goods."
The New York Times tells a story of
an Irishman who came up to the Judge
the other day, and beged to ba excused
from jury duty :
"But," said the Judge, "if all that
ask are excused na shall have no jurors
"I know, your honor," said the ap
plicant, with downcast head, while his
finger nails were busy here aad there
and everywhere that, the well practised
digitals could reach, "I know but mine
is a peculiar case. I bate to say it,
Jndge, lut if 1 must, I must, 1 suppose
I've got tha itch.'
'Here, Mr. Mataell,' hastily interpos
ed tht Judge, "scratch this juror out."

I have been induced to make the above lib

which cause they have seen fit to defer the
partition of the gifts, which waa fixed for the

by reference to their proceedings, published
below. I assure you that the, postponement
is as vexatious to me as it is to those who
have nurchased tickets. I therefore hope that
each and every one now interested, will co.
operate witn me in tne eiiori to dispose oi me
few thousand tickets remaining unsold, and
thus advance the interests of the whole body
of shareholders. Respectfully yours,

TO THE PATRONS OF
Pet-ham's Third Gilt Enterprise.
At a meeting of the Committee of Share
holders of rerham-'s Gift Enterprise, held at
the Academy Hall, Broadway, on Wednes
day Evening, April 18'.h, 1855, the following
preamble and resolutions were adopted and
ordered to be published:
Whertai, in view of the fact that several
enterprises have been started and carried on
with a seeming positive purpose oi ueirauu
ing those who could be persuaded to purchase
tickets therein; and such fraudulent proceed
ings have exerted an injurious influence in the
sale of tickets in the enterprise of Mr, Per-
ham: and whereas, it is deemed essential tnat
all the tickets should be disposed of before
the distribution takes place, be it therefore
Resolved. That in order to allow time for
that purpose, the distribution be nostnoiied
uutil the 5ih of July, at such place us may
hereafter be determined on.
Resolved, That the committee have undi
minished confidence in the integrity of Mr.
Perham, and in his disposition to conform to
all bis published promises to his patrons.
