HINTS TO SOME PEOPLE.
When you have occasion to
go to town call upon some
poor man of your acquaint
ance, makes no difference
whether you respect him very
much or not; call, especially
if he has been unfortunate
and lost about all be bad by
tire, water or tornado; makes
no difference bow many of
vour friends and children are
with voujust step into where
his wife is trying to prepare
a scanty meal and tell her
you’l be round for dinner,and
be sure to be, and carry all
your company,and if the poor
fellow happens to hare a stall
or place in which you can
stable your horses, stop with
him all night with all the
horses you hare,he’l treat von
kindly; and if ho is a man
trying to make an honest liv
ing follow him to his office,
and don’t foiget to ask him
for a bit of his best tobacco,
and then out with your stink
ing pipe and smoke the poor
man out of bis office; ov oth
erwise, while lie is writing
and trying to arrange some
little thing that may bring
bis poor wife andeliilda mor
sel of bread, do you just set
yourself to work, either walk
around the room and pry into
every nook and corner, or
pick tip his tools and cut the
counter or any thing that
happens to be lying round
loose; or, while one of your
party does all that kind of
pleasant business, do you set
down and maliciously tell lies
upon the man whose b'-ead
you have just swallowed to
till your capacious stomach.
Do this for the amusement
of the by standers and to the
mortification of him who has
just spread before you (at the
labor of a weary wife,) the
best lie bad; and when you
sting him to the heart, take
your leave without saying
good day. But don’t forget to
call again w hen yon return to
town, and don’t cairy a mess
of poik, rice, beans, potatoes,
or anything to feed your hor
ses upon; just call and do as
you did before, and get all
of your friends to do as you
do, and you will always be
well entertained when you
visit your old friends in town,
especially if you have the
brass to keep it up. People
in town are ever happy to see
any of their old acquaintan
ces of the above stipe, (in a
born.) Artemus, jr.

Port Gibson Reveille ofthe
8th: We lour irom Mr. Hen
ry Marx that on Wednesday
last a negro woman, who was
hoeing in afield near a church
on the plantation of the late
Win K. Vance, in Jefferson
County, suddenly struck a
pile of gold. She picked up a
handful and called a negro
man, who was plowing in the
same field, and showed it to
him, asking him if she could
buy a dress with it. “Sharp
er” said no, and told her to
“give the stuffto him,” which
she did. He immediately com
menced “grabbling” in the
ground, attracting others to
the scene, and the crowd got
the slim of five hundred dol
lars in shining gold. And
thus it is that many reap who
do not plant.
We are told the Vicksburg
Herald vigorously pronoun
ces against llie idea of reap
pointing Chancellor Peyton
in this district, andadvocates
the claims of our fellow
