He was a testy oal logy, nervous and impetuous.

lather obscure house announced.
After the 1-itigues ol the day. we all retired
€!ii*iy, three in the room, myself and the two
judges. Altera long legal com i isalion in the
dark, each voice arising from its respective coi
ner. a gradn.it stillness came over the house and
our room. 1 was suddenly startled, by hearing
the discordant and disagreeable howl of a cat
just under tny bed 1 heard the judge of “the
4th” start.
“ Gracious! a cat !” exclaimed he.
There was a cry from the other end of the
bed room. •
•• Another one!” said the other awakened
judge.
Then there was a general “shew, shew,
shew!” and a scampering over the Hour.
1 detest cats. I(. It die perspiration on tny
brow; there was another "mew” In die dim
ness ol the room I could perceive* the jndee el
the lilt’s full figure arise steal idly front its lu d.
pillow in hand. At the same instant I could
deafly perceive the form ol the other judge pass
between mvself and the window, lie had also
seized his bolster.
I saw at once that the two judges were simul
taneously acting on the same idea: that was.
imitating a cat. and getting die animals within
reach to deal a furious blow upon poor tubby.
“ Mew,” said the judge of the 1 h.
'• Mew.” answered the odier.
Then there was a tremendous mewing anil
howling of the real cats and the imitators It
was [li cit dark. 1 heard the cats trip out of die
door, and it turned out to be so, and the judges
were left alone
“ Mew ! mew ! mew !”
By litis time they were evidently approaching
each other, both under the impression that he
would wreak his vengeance on llie <1 is timers ol
our rest. It was the iiost who. arous-d by the
noise above, was hastening to the scene.
11l the mean time the two irrascihie old gen
tlemen, with night caps on their In ads, and
each brandishing a pillow, wore approaching
nearer.
“Mew! mew!”
There was a blow—another, and pnother,
mingled with excited exclamations.
At dtis crisis the host hurst into the room
with lights. The real cause of all the mischief
had fled, and in their stead, upon hands and
knees in die middle of the room, were exposed
the wrathful judges.

Thk Laoiks or !*r. i’i:rui-miui. — In the
burgher circles at St. Petersburgli.the two sexes
usually group themselves very much apart from
each other. Even at meals, the gentlemen take
one-half of the table, and the ladies the other.
1 will not venture exactly to praise such an ar
rangement. but certainly it spares many an old
grey-beard or busy merchant, engrossed with
agio* and percentages, the trouble of ha iiiit to
entertain a simitering sixteen year ok] neighbor.
The chief subjects of conversation with die la
dies of St. Petersburg!!, at the dinner table, anil
in the circle they subsequently form round their
coffee cups, are music, theatricals, the gossip ot
the town, a very little literature, and, above all.
the fashions. On this last subject they are in
exhaustible, ami truth demands the confession
that they do not cultivate a barren soil. They
do not. as many a distinguished nation d assem
bly has done, waste their time in fruitless theo
ries. Every pmjeef devised speedily becomes
an accomplished fact; [dans are no sooner
sketched than carried out: theory quickly blos
soms into practice : no undertaking is too diffi

too great for th-se devoted priestesses of the

lo the north of Johnson's route to Carson Valley.
It is at least fifty miles long, with an average
wid h of from ten to twenty miles; and yet wa

surrounded a great part of the year by everlast
ing snows. Ou eidn-r side are ranged those

from ihe melting j|mv<, successfully resisted
its annual efforts fo"ielease from its mountain

wall of rock that leads to unknown caverns ami

diode of spirits or genii, that in times gone hv

“ The bridegroom sea,

When the Governor of Ceylon was address

Love is a bird of summer skies ;
From cold and from winter be soon departs ;
He basks in the beam of good humored eves;
And delights in the warmth of open hearts;
But where he has once found chill and rain,
He seldom returns to that bower again.

Then he is allowed a free pass by President

flicts between Vera Cruz and the City of Mexi
co. Peace was declared, and the only General

Decidedly Cool.—One of the coolest affairs
we have heard ot for many a day, came off in
Columbia lust week. It appears that two par
ties claimed the same piece of ground, and a
gentleman belonging to the party having pos
session, was attacked by one of the others, in
presence ot the party, and given one or two
pretty sharp shoulder-strikers. These blows
were not resented at the time, as the occupant
of the claim had no friends present, and had not
been io dinner. He told the person, however,
that, as soon as he returned from dinner, he would
settle with him, thinking by partaking of a
pound or two of ood fat beef, that lie would la
the stronger and belter enabled to cope with his
tdversary. Accordingly, after lie had braced
his nerves by a hearty dinner, he returned to
the claim, called the gentleman out, and « e nn
lerstand. gave him a sound thrashing.—Cohna
