about a sick room, my boy, that makes
me think seriously of my latter end,

the muffled tread of thc venerable

harmless deception. W must send
for Secretary Welles, of the Navy De

know the difference."
I took the hint, my boy, and went
after the Secretary, but the latter was
so busy examining a model of Noah's

DEACO.V ROPE' S I E O N S
Several years ago, when the crops
in some of the Western States were
about to be destroyed by the large
number of wild pigeons that came
about, Deacon Thrope and several of
his friends were sitting outside of the
log meeting-houso one Sunday morn
ing, waiting for tho minister to arrive
and, as a matter of course, talking
about the prospect of" having "nothing
to feed on" through'tho coming win
"It's orfui 1" said one of the com
pany. "I never see the pigeons so
thick afore. My Bill and Be went
down to the roost last night, and killed
a bagfull with clubs. I thiuk they'll
take all my corn."
"Oh, yes it's orful replied the oth
"That's nothing to what me and my
Felix Joshua did, day before yester

came in it so thick

out, spid peradventure they riz up like
a cloud, yon couldn't see the sky for
'em. I hollered and slapped my hands
and tore around till I was plum wor

just swarmed around my head
and as fast as I went to one sido of tho
field thoy began to pour down on toth
er. Felix Joshua had just got up to
the crib with a load of corn, for he
was a gatheriu' the ridge fbdd, and I
went to where he was and told him to

He slipt along on one side of the field
and I slipt along on tother, till we got
about middle ways, and then I gin a
hollar, and up they flew like a whirla^

of 'em, and Felix Joshua blazed away
in the thickest of 'em, and what do
you think? They were all gone in. a
second. Then me and Felix Joshua,
we clem over the fence, and says he
to me, 'Father this beats all creation!'

The good brothers stared ildly
around them, and would probably have
groups of the faithful might have been
seen here and there, engaged in earn
est conversation. Their subject was
an exciting one, as you might have in
ferred from the length of their faces
and the earnestness of their gestures.
If you had listened to their conversa
tion, you might have heard something
about as follows
"Did you hear what Brother Thrope
said 'bout him and his Felix Joshua

And so it would go on. Of course
the good deacon heard whispers of it
which gave him no little uneasiness.—
However, he had been into several
scrapes before, aud had come out clear
and he doubted not he should meet
with thc same good luck on this occa
sion. Until the meeting day arrived
the entire settlement was in an uproar.
Nothing was talked of but Deacon
Thrope's ten bushels of pigeons. Th
good brothers said it was too bad to
have the church disgraced by a deacon
who told such unreasonable tales, while
the sisters wiped their spectacles, sigh
ed, and said, "It is bard telling the
power which the evil one exerteth."
A last the exciting day arrived.—
The preacher stated that the church
was ready for the transaction of busi
ness, whereupon brother Fingle arose
"Brother Deacon Thrope says him
and his Felix Joshua killed ten bush
els of pigeons at one shot. Th church
don't believe it, and would love to hear
what the brother has to say for him
With much solemnity the deacon
arose and after casting a serious look
over the, congregation, and elevating
his eves to the rafters a few times spoke
"Brethren, there is gad mistake
out—I didn't nay we killed ten bush
els at one shot, but—"

The Will ofStephen tiirard set Aside*
Girard College in Danger.
The Philadelphia Inquirer of Mdri
"Lawsuits by the heirs of Stephen
Girard have been pending in Schuyl
kill county,Pa. to recover possession
of eightv-five hundred acres of coal
land in Mahoning Valley, forteen miles
above Pottsville. A action of eject
ment was brought against the city by
Agustus Girard,-John Fabricus Girard
and other heirs, and at the end of last
week was decided in favor of the
heirs. This decision was made by
Judge Higgins of Pottsville.
"Stephen Girard died in 1831, and
his will is dated February 16th, 1830.
In the will the testator directed that
the net residue arising from the rents,
issues and profits of his real estate in
Pennsylvania, after keeping the prop
erty in the city aud liberties of Phila
delphia in good repair, and erecting
new buildings thereon whenever ne
cessary, was to be applied to the same
uses and purposes to which ths resi
due of his personal estate was applied.
"Among the points raised by the
plaintiffs was the following
"That the devise in trust to apply
the rents of the real estate in Penn
sylvania, first, to the erection of new
buildings upon so much thereof as is
situated in the citv and liberties of
Philadelphia, from time to time, as the
same may be necessary, has no limita
tion as to time when such piling up of
capital by the accumulation as afore
said is to cease, but the same may
continue beyoud the period fixed for
the vesting of an executory limitation,
and is, therefore, void.'
"Considerable testimony was pro
duced by the plaintiffs to show that on
aceount of thj provision in the will
limiting the leases of the land to five
years, it was so fettered thereby as to
render the land practicaly useles, and
therefore the devise was void, as be
ing contrary to thc policy of the law
which does not allow land to be locked
up forever in that a but the de
fendants showed that leases had been
already made on the terme prescribed
in the will, and that a great many ap
plications from responsible parties for
leases on the lands had b«en made,
and on terms profitable to the city.
"The Judge affirmed the point of
the plaintiffs (above given.) and in
structed the jury that upon the evi
dence the plaintiffs were entitled to
recover thc land. Th case will be
taken to the Supreme Court."
Th Philadelphia North American
has these statements:
"The decision of Judge Uigsrins
was effect that the testament of Mr.
Girard in some of its features was an
'aggressive trust,' against public poli
cy and law, and therefore void and
that tn the eye of tho law he died in
testate, and on the day of his death
his property vested in his heirs.
"Startling as is this result, it is even
less remarkable than the circumstance
which are supposed to surround it.—
It is asserted that a combination has
been formed in this State, extending
from Pittsburg to Philadelphia, and
embracing men of professional and,
especialy, of political distinction, to
destroy the trust, and divert the estate
from the purposes to which the testa*
tor solemnly devoted it. Speculative
interests, contingent upon taking the
bread from the mouth of the orphan,
have been spread far and wide, and
even the professional skill which at
one time was employed and paid for
by the people of Philadelphia to guard
this trust, is now found upon thc side
of the heirs, engaged in this effort to
