Let other poets rhripsodixa
»Ju nature's changing scenes—
On stormy seas or sunny skies—
-1 sing thy praise, U Beaus !
O, glorious product of the vine!
I'd deem there were no means
Of nourishing this mortal life,
Deprived of thee, U Beaus !
Some men like mutton—some roast beef,
Some bacon cooked with greeus ;
I turu away from such poor trash,
V\ uh joy to thee, O Beaus '
Ay, with a pure,and fond delight,
My heart low-ards thee leans,
Ami from my soul I pity that
I’oor wretch who ‘‘knowsnot Beans.”
And were I taking my last leave
Of life and earth's fair scenes,
My fainting spirit would revive
At sight unu sulell of Beaus !
Taking ili<- marcli oat of ’em.
Wo find under this head a very humorous
joke going the rounds, but as it is too long for us
to publish entire, we give merely the gist of it.
A green Vermonter found himself watching the
efforts of several “smart” New Yorkers, upon
tho end of a pier which ran out into the Hudson
river, each endeavoring to pitch a missile at the
farthest distance from the shore. Attor watch
ing them for some time, Jonathan, without say
ing a word to either, pitched u large chunk ol
wood so much further into the stream, as to vex
the leader of the covies, who at once determ
ined to “ do” him in some fashion. For this
purpose he got into conversation with him, and
■which in u few minutes resulted in Jonathan's
vowing that he was so all fired strong that he
could throw the young bully clear over the
Hudson fiver, “jest like open and shet.”
" Bet you ten dollars of it,” proposed covey.
“ Done !” said the Yankee ; and drawing forth
on X, (upon a broken down East bank,) he cov
ered tiie hraggers shin plaster.
• “Km you swim, feller I ”
“ Like a duck,” said green jacket; and, with
out- further parley, the Vermonter seized the
knowing Yorker stoutly by the nape of the neck
and the seat ot his pauis, jerked him from his
foothold, and with au almost superhuman effort
dashed the bully heels overhead from the dock,
some ten yards out into the Hudson river.
A terrific shout ran through the crowd, as he
floundered into the water, and amid the jeers
ami screams of hi* companions, the ducked
bully put hack to the shore, and scrambled up
the batik, half frozen by this sudden and invol
untary cold hath.
“i'll lake that ten spot, if you please,” said
the shivering loafer, advancing rapidly-to the
stakeholders. “ You took us for greenhorns, eh !
We'll show you how to do things down here in
York” —and the fellow claimed the twenty dol
lars.
“ Wal, I reckon yeou wunt take no ten spots
jis' yit, cap’n.”
“Why/ Yon lost tho bet.”
“ Not edzactly. I didn’t calkilate ondenin it
the fust time—but I tell yeou 1 kin deu it” —
and, in Spite'of tho loafer's utmost effort to es
cape him, he seized him by the scruff and the
seat of his overalls, anil pitched him three yards
further into the river than upon the first trial!
Again the bully returned, amid the shouts of
his mates, who enjoyed the sport immensely.
“ Third time never fails,” said the Yankee,
stripping off his coat; ■“ I can deu it, I tell ye.”
“ Hold ou !” said the almost petrified victim.
“And 1 will deu it—if i try till to-morrow
tnorniu’.”
.' “ I give it np ! ” shouted the sufferer between
his teeth, which now chattered like a mad bad
ger’s —“ take the money.”
The Vermonter very cooly pocketed the ten
spot, and as he turned away, remarked:
“ We aint much acquainted with your smart,
folks daouu here'n York, but we sometimes take
the starch out of ’em up onr way —and p’raps
yen want try it on to strangers agin. I reckon
yen vvuul.*’
CF 8 The Mobile Register concludes an abstract
of Mr. Benton’s narrative of the controversy
between Great Britain and the United States,,
respecting the restitution of the slaves carried'
off by the British in 1812, as follows:
“ The manner in which the whole sfory is
told is highly creditable to Benton, for Adams
and he, it must be remembered, were always in
political hostility to each other. Yet the veteran
does not hesitate to accord to his antagonist the
highest praise for this transaction. Mr. Clay
also conies in, though implied only, for a share
of the eulogy. Clay and Adams had both been
commissioners to negotiate the Ghent treaty. —
They knew, if any body knew, whtit the article
in question meant. Three proceeding Admin
istrations and two Presidents had suffered the
adjustment of the difficulty to languish, more or
less, to the serious loss of those masters who l.ad
been deprived of their slaves, and to the loss, in
a certain degree, cf the dignity of the nation.
But when Adams became President, and Henry
Clay Secretary of Stale, the two together, put
ting their shoulders to the wheel, soon forced
the long protracted negotiation to a successful
issue. All this Benton frankly recognizes. It
the rest of his memoirs are written in the same
impartial spirit—as the presumption is they are
—the volumes will be among the most valuable
contributions yet made to the history of onr
•country.”
Got Even.— One of the unlucky sons ol Pike,
who some time since was taken in and done tor
in the usual scientific manner, at one ot the gam
bling hells of this city, hud the good fortune
lately to meet the accomplished gentlemen who
“did” him. at San Jose, when he was not sur
rounded by his pals and cappers, to save him
from the just vengeance of the injured. Pike
cooly informed “ nicey” what awaited him, and
invited him to draw his kids and peal for the
combat. To this onr gent objected, and, draw
ing his pistol, attempted to bluff Missouri off. but
it was no go; away from his dunghill the charm
of that game failed, and Pike, cooly patting his
pistol aside, waded into him to his heart’s con
tent, and to the full value of his lost slug. He
then gave him ten minutes to evacuate the town,
the penalty for overstaying that time to be an
other lamming. But our nice young man, not
relishing the entertainment, took himself hastily
oft' with many threats of vengeance, and prom
ises to be on the watch for Pike, and reciprocate
favors upon his first visit to our city. We under
stand that Missouri promised to telegraph in ad
vance of his next visit.— S. F. S»n.

Most Wise and Righteous Judgment — A few
years ago there lived in the county of Middle
sex, .'lass., rather an eccentric gentleman who
occupied the Judge’s seat. Upon one occasion,
there were two men arraigned before Judge IS.,
charged wild disturbing the peace.
Number one, upon the usual question of‘guil
ty,’ plead guilty lo drunkenness.
•Von were drunk, were you V said Judge S,
‘Yes, sir.’ replied the prisoner.
‘What did you get drunk on, sir?’
‘Whisky, sir.’
‘What sort of whisky, sir ?’
‘New whisky, sir, just warm from the still.’
‘So you got drunk on new whisky, right warm
from tlic still, did you /’
‘Y’es sir.’
‘Mr. Clerk, fine that man ten dollars, and im
prisonment in the-county jail for the period ol
one month.
Number two, being arraigned, pleaded guilty
also.
•Y'ou were drunk, were you sir?’ asked the
Judge.
*" ‘Y es. sir.’
‘What did you drink of, sir V
‘Brandy, sir.’
‘What sort of brandy?’
‘.Peueli brandy, sir.’
‘What! old peach brandy?’
‘Yes, sir.’ *
‘How did you drink it V
‘With a little honey, sir.’
‘What sort of honey, sir V
‘Nice strained honey, sir.’
‘So you got drunk on old peach brandy and
nice strained honey, did you ?'
‘Y'cs, sir.’
‘Mr. Clerk, fine that man one dime; the Court
would like a little of that itself.’
This same Judge S. had a very wild son Bob,
who was constantly on a spree, and upon being
brought up one day for drunkenness, the Judge
cried out:
‘ls that our Boh V
‘Y’es sir,’ replied the Clerk.’
‘Fine the rascal two dollars and costs !’ roared
the Judge; ‘l'd make it leu uollars if I didn’t
know it would come out of my own pocket!’
Americans Ahead in Australia. — We have
received the London Times of September 18th.
We notice in its columns, a letter from Thomas
.1. Laby, ( the geutlem'an who kindly" forwarded
us newspapers from Melbourne, ) in which he
states the Americans are supplanting the Eng
lish in the Anstrali n market. The miners will
give twice as much for a shovel or pick of
American m <Ke, as for an English article of the
same kind. American axes, hatchets, claw-ham
mers, and many other tools," were preferred to
the English article. American stoves sold for
£lB to £2s;' he had seen such stoves sold in
America for £2 10a. Mr. Laby says he had re
sided in the United States and California, and
writes because he does not “like to see a
better article furnished to Australia by Ameri
cans, than can he made in Britain, providing
the makers set about doing their best.-

Ct/’ Small acts of kindness, how pleasant and

a trifling kindness drives despair away, and

v t Doctor.) lias removed to High street, first
building east of the Courier priming office, and
is now prepared either to receive patients at his
residence, or to wait upon them elsewhere, as
may he required. Having had several years »x
-perience In the Water Cure System, both in this
■y a
country and Europe, he feels himself competent
to give advice ami assistance in all eases where
relief is possible. This system is admirably
adapted to the cure ol a great variety of dis
eases, both internal and external, chronic and
acute ; in fact, in ail cases where the vital energy
is not solar destroyed that a patisbielory reac
tion is impossible, implicit confidence may he
placed in it.
To all who are afflicted with fevers, rheuma
tism, scrofula, hemorrhoids, dysentery, diarrhea
and abdominal complaints generally, dyspepsia,
hypochondriasis, hysterics, skin diseases, run
ning sores, venereal complaint?, mercurial and
other medicinal diseases, still" joints, dropsy,
lameness, swellings and callousness in private
lornialioiis, common weakness, nervous disor
ders, imperfect menstruation, green sickness,
etc., etc., he w;mld recommend this cure with
full confidence, and the assurance that, it they
give it a fair trial they will obtain speedy relief.
Although its influence, when rightly used, is
comparatively mild and harmless upon the sys
tem, yet, tor the removal of diseases, it is mote
energetic and speedy than any of the remedies
now generally used.
I Me would respectfully refer to the persons
already treated hy him —in all cases successfully
—since his resilience in Shasta.
