WHAT sno wAS WonTH.-Hooper, of the
Montgomerny Mail, condoctends occasionally
to furnish us with a bit of humor. Here
is a specimen:
" What has become," we asked "of Frank
Our friend's face grew sad at the mention
of the name.
"Have you never heard," Ihe said "of
Frank's remarkable marriage' ?"
"Never," we replied.
" Well, sir lie married-his wife is a beau
tiful, accomplished, lovely woman, but"
" But what?"
"Sir, Mrs. HI- , was reputed before
the marriage to be worth justJfleen thou
sand dollars. She was the only daughter
of a widowed mother. iHer friends, when
asked-, and her mother too-always said
that it was fifteen thousand dollars. Of
course it was believed."
" Certainly; all that sort of thing is al
ways believed I"
"Well when they were married, and
Frank come to count the money"
" He no doubt fonnd it fifteen hundred!"
"By no means; the old lady had the keep
ing of the young lady's income; a good
deal of the money was hoarded, and when
it was all actually counted, it was ascer
tained that Mrs. - had, instead of- lf
teen, TWENTY-TWO thousand dollars-a clear
gain of seven to Frank I"
Here our friend wiped his face slowly,
and swore as he finished the recital, that
he believed "that no such case had over
happened out of forth Carolina!"
APPEARANCES DEcsri vE.-Didappoini
ed Pickpocket.-" Well, if this ain't moan!
Here's this feller been agoin' about with
this here yaller chain, and when I pulls it
it out there's no watch on the end of it.
The conduct of those flashy'clorks is enough
to break the heart of a poor feller like me,
who has to depend on his trade for a livin."
A GooD DESCRIPTION OF ELECTRICAL
ACTION.-Professor Hannibal's last lecture
As usual he begins at the beginning. He
ays--"Do fuss question I ax am; 'what
am electricity ?"- and i answer myso'f,
like do bko in do hills, 'No body knows,'
some say dat olectricity anm 'do lightening
of human thought,' anlat's jist about as
clear as day deal it outeto us ignorant dar
kies.' But he cites one illustration of ' do
tox,' which scenis conclusive; 'Sposen you
see a silver dollar laying on do pavement,
looking you full in de face, whar somebody
drop it, would you stand and consider long
before you pick it up I Your sour castic
smile answers, "No." Well, don, what
makes you grab it up and drop it in pock
et, as if it was hot, and makes you turn do
fust corner you come to ? Why, electric
ity, if I kno anything 'bout it !"
SItiA worthless bill is described ashav.

It is time for us to go go back to thosepure

wild latitudinarianism of the age, and evident

DESIRABLE TOWN RESIDENCE
For Sale or for Rent,
MY FAMILY RESIDENCE In the town
JIL of Clinton, in which I am now living, in
cluding the entire premises, lot, dwelling house,
kitchen, store-rooms, carriage houses, stables,
cribs, and flower and kitchen gardens, besides
all other appurtenances necessary and conveni
ent for a comfortable family residence.
The lot is situated just near enough to the
public squure to be both convenient and re
tired; measures seventy-five feet front by three
hundred back, bounded on the east, north and
south by a public street, and on the west by
the residence of D. C. Hardee, Esqr.
The dwelling house is two stories high, is
large and airg, raised several feet off of the
ground, to admit the free passage of air under
neath. It contains eight large rooms, four
above, and four below; four measures eighteen
feet square, and four are seventeen by eighteen.
There are also two large halls, one above, and
one below stairs. Also two balconies, both on
the upper story, one in front, the other in the
rear of tle house, with a piazza on the lower
story, fronting the street.
This house was built for a family residence,
and every attention was paid to the construc
tion of every portion of it, with a view to beau
ty of structure, comfort and health. No resi
dence can be found in the Parish surpassing it
ni these particulars.
The kitchen is large and commuodious, con
taining four extra rooms.
There is a most excellent well on the prem
ises, affording water in good quantities, amply
sufficient for all family purposes.
The entire establishment built in the fall of
18568, is entirely new and in an admirable state
I will also sell all my kitchen and household
furniture, comprising: sofas, chairs, tables, win
dow curtains, of fine quality, selected for my
own use, &c. &c., on the most reasonable terms,
and in lots to suit the purchaser.
The house and fixtures are insured to the ith
of May, 1856. The pulrchaser will have the
benefit of the insurance. A. LEVI.
