Tho following Incident in a District School, des
cribed by Mr. William l'itt Palmer, of New Yuik,
Frcsideut of the Manhattan Insurance Cumpany,
In an ndlross beforo "The Literary Society," in
Stockbri'lge, Mnes., his native home, Mill tako
tunny, whose heads aro eow utroahed YfttU silvery
hairs, n journey hack to boyhood and fatly life:
A District School, not far awHy,
Mnl llcrksturc hilly, 0110 winter's day
Was humming with iu wonted noiie
Of three-score intuited girls and boys
Home few upon their task intent.
Hut more on furtive inlsohtef bent :
Tho while thomnstor's downward took
Was fastoned on a copy-book
When suddenly, behind his baek,
lloso sharp and clear a roustngBKAOK 1
As 'twere u battery of lilies
LetofTinono trcmondotis kiss I
"What's that?" the startled master cries,
"That, thir," a little Imp repllos,
" Walh William Willlth, if you ploalho
I thaw him kith Thuthannall l'uutUo I"
With frown to make & statue thrill,
Tho master thundered, " Hither Willi"
Like wretch oVrtakcu in ills track,
With stulen chattel on his back,
Will hung his head in fear anil shamo
And to tho awful presence came
A frreat, groon, bashful tdinploton,
The butt of all good-natured fun
With smilo suppressed, and birch upraised,
Tho threatens r faltered " I'm ainated
That you, my biggest pupil, should
He guilty of all act so rude I
llcfore tho whole sot eeliool to boot
What ovil genius put you to't?
" "Iwas sho heriolf, sir," sobbod the lad,
" I didn't mean te bo so bud
llut when Susannah shook her ourls,
And whispered I was 'fraid of girls,
And dursn't kiss a baby's doll,
1 couldn'tstaud it, sir, at all,
Hut up and kissed hor on tho spot 1
I know boo hoo I ought to not,
Hut somehow from her looks boo hoo

Tho following anecdote is related by Win
cuell, in Ids inimitable way:
" One day, not long since, the accommoda
tion train from Cleavlaud to Columbus had a
convict on board, who was being taken by an
officer to the p enitcntiary located at tlio last
named place. The prisoner was covered with
a cloak which concealed from view the shauUlus
upon his wrists. Ho sat slightly bowed
looking Teryglum, and probably rellectitif; upon
the rather nurrow prospect before him. A New
England Yankee on the train had his curiosity
particularly excited by what ho inferred to bo a
considerable weight on tiio spirit of the convict;
so he approached him with the intent to elicit,
if possible such information as would gratify
Lis curiosiy. 'J he following are Iho iiuestiom
be propounded, and tho answers thereto :
' (Join tcr Kliunbus ?'
'(Join' cuuy further?'
'(Join' tcr stop in Klumbus?'
' fioin' ter see onny friends there?
'Goin' ter du ennykind o' work thero?'
' Goin' ter start bianeas on yer own hook?'
' What are ye goin' thero for ?'
' Going fur acveu years.'
The Yankee's curiosity was almost satisfied.
A darkey arose to announce his text as fol
lows: "Ju do fns 'pistol of Clover, second
chapter and two" hundred and ninety fust verse.'
' Hold up, Doctor,' cried one of his hearers,
"you'o got into do wrong book; you menu do
pistol of Timothy I 'spose.' 'J he preacher,

Tho following testimony from William Cullcn
Bryant, Washington Irving, Jos. O. Cogswell, and
tho North American Itoriew, will bo read with in
terest: "T have looked over with great satisfaction part
of tho sheets of Dr. Worcester's Quarto Dictionary
the work being yst unpublished. Dr. TTorceslor
has performed with rare industry and admirable
judgment tho proper task of tho Lexicographer,
that of ascertaining and recording ussgsi of our
language. The new and authentic etymologies, the
conciseness and completeness of the dclTinltion, the
nicety with which iho different shades of meaning
in synonyms aro distinguished, and the conscien
tious accuracy of the work in all Its departments,
give it, in my judgment the highest claims to the
publlo favor. W. C. BRYANT.

A :cniblo writer remarks : " Man doubles
allthe evils of his fato by pondering over them;
n, scratch becomes a wound; a slight mi in
jury; it jest, an insult; n small ptiril a great
danger ; and a slight sickness often cuds in
death, by brooding apprehensions."
A histrionic party ho has heard a great
deal about tho " Theatre of War, "..suggests that
the back seats must be desirable.
A nojjro once gave this tORlt : "Do late gub
