Tho writer of this has tried tho experi ment, and after three years constant iho of a chimney, plastered as above directed, be could never obtain n quart of soot, though he several times employed a sweep to scrapo it from top to bottom.

Ho casually noticed that a person in the throng had a sprig of trefoil stuck in the latchotof his shocs.°In a few minutes, his attention was arrested by remarking another with a sprig similar ly situated. His first and natural conclus. , the sprigs had been thus caught and retained by rumbling among the luxu riant clover of the field : but on looking around he discovered so many who Lore tho same sprig in the shoe, tha't he at once concluded it meant something more than met his eye, which he determined if pos. sible to discover. Accordingly, he retired a little, mounted a clover sprig, according to pattern, in his own shoe, and mingled again with the crowd. In a very few minutes a brother sprig jogged his arm and in an under tone, said, " Do you cut or car. pr " 1 carry:" said Criedland, without knowing tho meaning of either the question or tho reply. Then come along with me rejoined Ins introgater.

His views in regartto an increase of the Judges' salaries, are iijust and oppressive. The framers of the Constitution, who hod the power to enlarge tie sum, no doubt duly considered the impotence of tho subject, and put them to wM they believed an ad equate compensât!»*, leaving them on a basis so certain, af not to be diminished without a constitutional change. An attempt to saddle the public with fresh g rievances, at the rery time they are tim ing efforts to get rid of odious taxes and expensive litigations, can only have a ten dency to rouse their feelings and excite their discontent. Tho salaries as now fixed by law, arc believed to be ample and sufficient for rea sonable men. If labour be the ground of complaint—increase the amount before Jus ucco -r.Uc, reucu, to «..® fiv« hundred dollars. They ara-aot so ignorant of our gentry suppose. The great body of the people, are in fa vour of an increase of tho magistrates ju risdiction. There can be no doubt on this point. If any member of the Court is dis satisfied with the compensation, let him re sign, and not manifest a disposition to creaso tho public burdens, which always falls heaviest on the poorer classes. There will be no difficulty in filling the vacancies with competent men. Salaries should be competent and no more—when ever they become a burden, and a lure for ambitious aspirants, and restless politicians —the people have cause to complain. The great object in calling the to get rid of unnecessary taxes. If so, why encrease them? The people are the best judges oftheir own wants, and will speak when their rights are assailed. Tne Legislature represent them and will isomc en of conven tion, do them justice. a Those who live at ease, at the public pense, forget the wants of those in the hum bier walks of life.

Why not permit a civil magistrate to per forin the ceremony, ns the caso in most other states ; why compel the person to go a considerable distance at much incon venience and expense to have done, what every Judge and Justice of the Peace ought to be authorised to do? Is this equality ? Is it respecting the rights of conscience? Let it not be thought that I wish to take from ministers the privilege of perform ing the ceremony, far from it, that would he violating the consciences of the bulk of the people who feel it a consciencious duly to he married by a minister.

Two three years ago this subject was before the Legists turc, and was defeated in the House only by the casting vote of the speaker.

Ought not • he rights of all to be put on an equal footing ?
