" THE FIRST QUAKER.
An old American snvnge, at an inn in
New iork.rnet w ith a ' gentleman, who
pave him some liquor, and being rather
lively, he btg.ililo boast Ihnt he could read
and wnle Lnplih.n 1 he gentleman being
willing to indulge him in displaying his
knowledge, -begged to propose a question,
to winch the oltl man consented, lie was
then asked who whs the first person cir
cumcised i The Indian immediately re
plied, "Father Abraham;" and directly
asked the gentleman who was the first
quaker?. lie said it was very uncertain,
as the people dill'ercd in their sentiments.
The Indian, perceiving the gentleman un
able lo solve llie question, put his fingers
in his mouth lo express l,i. surprise, and
told him, Mordceai was the lirst quaker,
for he ouid not pull oil' his hat lo Ha

We heard nn anecdote a lew days sir.ee,
says the Boston Gazette, which it'miiy mil
be amiss here to relate. A certain trades
man, .tint a thousands miles from (.'mirl
street, was continually annoyed by cus
tomers cniiiiig in ami complaining that
their hills vv ere incorrect, but, upon refer
ring to his book, he found the items charg
ed as they should be. Upon asking his
clerk, olW r a gentleman had left the store
taking a receipted bill with him, he vvaa
lold that he adopted that course after a
long study ol human nature. '! have ob
served that cry few men let an error,
which ii is in their power lo correct, es
peciallv in dollars ihnI cents, remain lung.
It xvorr es tin m, and by that means they
rail in and a settlement is uff.'cted, when
if the hill had been sent in all right, they
would lile it away for future 'payment."
There is some truth in that ihonah il
