Yoa can't exactly rind it on the map, for it has been located and incorporated since Mitchell's latest ; but its : there a - manu factaring city, as large as life, with banks, barber shops, newspapers,' and all' the fix tures and appertenance of a locomotive, going ahead, Yankee settlement. Just about the newest thing in the new city, is a new clothing store that riz up or 'rained down lately, on the Jonaa's ground or; Aladdin's palace principles, and which, by the same mysterious dispensa tion, became endowed with the cutest Yan kee salesmen that the Dirigo State ever turned out. T'other dayj an up river young un, who is about to forsake father and mother and cleave unto Nancy Ann, came down to get his suit, and was, of course, 4 jest naterally baound to find his way into the new clothing store. Not that he sauntered in with the easy swagger of the town-bred searcher of cheap cloth ing, for the vernal tint was tolerably lresh on him yet, and he stopped to give a mod est rap at the door. He had effected an entrance at the grist-mill and at the Jour nal office, where he had been doing busi ness in the same unobtrusive manner, and the boys all agreed that Mr. Nehemiah Newbegin was from the "Gulley, and was paying his virgin visit to 'Pekin. Ne hemiah was let in 'imegitly, " and he was delighted with the cordial reception he met with. The proprietors were ready to forward his suit at once, if he 'saw fit, or they would 'take measures, and 'furnish him to order. Nehemiah drew a handbill from the top of his hat, and spread it " on his knee for easy reference. It was head ed in fat Gothic letters: 'WinteT Clothing at Cost, and set that, in consequence of the mildness of the season, over five thou sand dollars worth of ready made clothing was to be closed up and sold at an 'Enor mous Sacrifice ! A list of prices follow ed, and Nehemiah, running his stumpy finger down the column, lit with emphasis on a particular item: Say! v'ye got enny of these blew cotes left, at five dollars nd five n'afnd six dollars got enny on 'em left ? Smith, are there any of those cheap coates left ? inquired the perlite Mark of his partner. 'We sold the last this mor ning, did we not ? - Smith understood the cheap clothing business, and answered promptly, A11 gone, sir. " Jest's I xpected, murmured the disap pointed candidate. 'Darnation seize't oil ! I told dad they'd all be gone f We have a very superior article for ten dollars. Scacely, Squire, scacely ! ten dollars is an all-fired price for a cote ! We can make you one to order. Y-e-s ! but I want it now want it rite strut off fact is, Squire, must hev un. You'd "find those cheap at ten dol lars. 'Dun know baout it! say, vye got en ny of these dewrable doeskin trowsers left, at tew dollars sold them all tew, 'spect, haintye? haint none o them left nuther, hev ye V ; Xuckily there was a few left and Nehe miah was advised to secure a pair at once. Nehemiah was open for a trade, but acting on the instincts of the Newbegins, it must be a dicker. Dew yeou ever tek projeuce , for your clothing V ' Take whatr ' ' Projuce garden sass and sich -don't do it, dew yeou Y , 'Well, occasionally we. do; what have you to sell?; t ; ... . h . Oh almost anything; a leetle of every- thmg, from marrowfat peas down to rye straw; got some new; cider, some: high top sweetings ; got some of the - allkillin est dried punk in yeou ever set eyes on ; spect, neow, yeou'd Eke some of that dried punkin. ' : ' - " -- Mart declined negotiating for the dried punk in, but inquired if he had any good butter. - j '7, '.vi rr;T'V.' "7 1 t T ? G-o-o-d butter ! now, Squire, I expect lve got some of the nicest :and yallerest yeou ever eot eyes on; got some out here neou ; ,got some in a ahcoger box, eout in dad's wagin ; bro't it daown ; for Kurnel Waldron, hut yeou ken hev it HI brins it right strut in here darned ef I doantT and with all the impetuosity of youth Ne hemiah shot forth lor dad's wagin, "and brought in the butter, " On the strength of the butter, a dicker, was speedily contracted, by which Nehen iah was to be put immediate and absolute possesion of a coat, vest and pantaloons, of good material and fit. 'Now, then, said Mark, 'what kind of a coat will yoa have Y J.'. ? v I reckon I'll hev a( blew un, Squire,' ' Yes, but what kind -a dres coat ? : A: Certainly, Squire,1 certainly, jest what I wan a coat for tew dress in. ; s i Ah exactly ; well, just look at these plates, pointing to the fashion plates in the window, 4and see what style you fancy,' Oh darn yeour plates, don't want any crockery ; 'spect Nance has got the all killin'est lot of arthenware you over sot eyes on. Yes, I see; well, just step this way, then, and I think I can accommodate you. Nehemiah speedily selected a nice blue coat and vest of green, but he was more fastidious in his choice of the pants, those crowning glories of his new , suit. He seemed to indulge a weakness for long pantaloons, and complained that his last pair had troubled him exceedingly, or as he expressed it, 'blamedly, by hitching up over his botts, and wrinkling about the knees. Nehemiah delved away impetu ously amid a stock of two or three hundred pairs, until finally his eyes rested upon a pair of lenghty ones, real blazers, with with wide yellow stripes running each way. Nehemiah snaked them out in a twink ling. He liked them they were long and yellow they were just the thing, and he proceeded at once to try them on. The new clothing store had a nook curtained off for this purpose, and Nehemiah was speedily closeted therein. The pants had straps, and the straps were buttoned. Now Nehemiah had seen straps before, but the art of managing them was a mystery, and like Sir Pat rick's dilemma, 'required a mighty da5 of nice consideration." On deliberation, be decided that the boots must go first ; he ac cordingly drew on his Bluchers, mounted a chair, elevated the pants at a proper an gle, and endeavored to coax the legs into them. He had a time of it. His boots were none of the smallest, and pants were none of the widest ; the chair, too, was rickety, and bothered him ; but bending his energies to the task, he -succeeded in inducting one leg into the "pesky things. He was straddled like the Colussus of Rhodes ; and just in the act of raising the other foot, when whispering and giggling in his immediate vicinity, made him alive to the appalling fact that nothing but a thin curtain of chintz separated him from twen ty or thirty of the prettiest and wickedest girls that were ever caged in one shop ! Nehemiah was a bashful youth, and would have made a circumbendicus of a mile any day rather than meet those girls, even if he had been in full dress; as it was, his mouth was much ajar at the bare possibili ty of making his appearance among them in his present dishabille. What if there was a hole in the curtain ! .What if it should fall ! It wouldn't bear thinking of; and plunging his foot into the vacant leg with a sort of frantic looseness, he brought on the very catostrophe he was so anxious to avoid. The chair collapsed with a sud den 'scrouch,' pitching Nehemiah head over heels through the curtain, and he made his grand entrance among the stitch ing divinities, on all fours, like a fettered rhinoceros. , Perhaps Collier himself had never ex hibited a more striking tableau vivant than was now displayed. Nehemiah was a 'model' every inch of him, and though not exactly 'revolving on a pedestal, he was going through that movement quite as ef fectually on his back kicking, plunging, in short personifying in thirty . seconds all the attitudes ever 'chiseled ! As for the gals they screamed, of course, jumped up on chairs and cutting-board, threw their hands over their faees, peeped - through their fingers, screamed again, and declar ed they should die they knew they should. .! v . ; . . Oh Lord ? blubbered " the distressed young un ; ,'don't, gals, don't ! I didn't go tew, I swan to , man, I didn't; its all owin to these cussed trowsers- every mite on't ; ask your boss, hell tell ye: how 'twas. -Oh, lordy ! won't nobody Iriver me up with old clothes or turn the wood box over me ? Oh, Moses;- in the - bullrushes, wbat'll Nancy sayr ,,v -' He managed to raise himself on his feet and made a bold splurge towards the door, but his entangling alliances tripped him up again, and fell kerslap upon' the goose of the pressman This wastheunkindest cut of all.' The goose had been heated ex pressly for thick cloth seams, and the way it sizzled in the seat of the new pants was afflicting to the wearer. NHerniahri2r up ' in an instant, and seizing the source of all his troubles by the slack, he . tore himself free from all save the straps and some pan talet like frangments that hung about his ankles, as he dashed through the empori um at a two-forty pace.

Getting an Invitation. It was observed that ascertain rich man in New York city nevef invited any one to dine with him. . ' ; "I'll lay a wager," said a wag, "that I get an invitation from him. The wager being accepted, he goes the next day to the rich man's house, and tells him he can save him a thousand pounds. "What is that, sir? Can you save me a thousand pounds ? "Yes, sir, I can ; but I see you are at dinner ; I will go myself and dine, and call again." "O, pray, sir, come in and take dinner with me." ; "I shall be troublesome. "Not at all. ! The invitation was accepted. As soon as dinner was over and the family retired, the conversation was resumed. "Well, sir," said the man of the house, "now to your business. : Pray let me know how I am to save a thousand pounds." "Why, sir," said the other, "I hear that you have a daughter to dispose of in mar riage." , - "I have, sir." t "And that you intend to portion her with ten thousand pounds." ' ' - " . "I do, sir." ; .r ' . "Why, then, sir, let me have her, and I will take her at nine thousand pounds." The master of the house rose in a pas sion and kicked the fellow out of doors. . , For the Squatter Sovereign. Squatter Meeting. Messrs. Editors: A meeting of the citizens in the vicinity of Mount, Pleasant, was called on the 25th of August, 1856, for the purpose of protecting each others right to one hundred and sixty acres, af ter the present survey is completed, and the settlers have made their selection, it is then open for any and all. ; The meeting being numerously attend, it was deemed proper to pass some resolu tions, whereupon Joseph Potter, was call ed to the chair, and W. J. Young, ap pointed secretary, and a committee of five was appointed to draft resolutions. "Where upon, W. J. Young, Joseph McBride, B. F. Wilson, W. Watkins and W. Penic, were appointed as acommitte. After the committee retired, Mr. Musserwas called on to address the meeting, but not beincr very well he declined. The committee after being absent but a short time brought in the following preamble and resolutions: Whereas, We have reliable information that there are many, persons from the States, who are prepairing and intend fol lowing after, and going1 ahead of the sur veys, with the i intention of infringing upon or jumping the claims of settlers, we are therefore determined to protect ourselves against any and all such per sons. We therefore, Resolve, That no person shall settl on the claim of any actual settler, or make a claim that will interfer with the original settlers claims; and further .-. Reeolve, That we the undersigned bind ourselves to carry out the above resolutions, and will aid each other in removing their houses when and where necessary. On motion of Thos. L. Fortune, it was requested thai the above proceedings be published in the "Atchison and- Kickapoo papers. " J. POTTER, Chn. , W. J. Yovva, Secretary. -Ecoxoacr isr a StiAi.1.

It forms a sort of soap with the oil, which carries off all the rust. To Cleas- Brass. Rub the varnished or rusted brass, by means of a cloth or a sponge, with diluted acid, such as the sul phuric, or even with strong vinegar. Af terwards wash it with hot water to remove the acid, and finish with "dry whiting. Gloss ozr Lireit. To restore the gloss commonly observed on newly purchased collars and shirt bosoms, add a spoonful of gumarabic water to a pint of the starch a usually mad for this purpose. Two oun ces of clear gum-arabic may be dissolved in a pint of water, and after standing over night, may be racked ofT, and kept in a bottle ready for use. Butter Makiko. Not one pound in ten of butter made is fit for human food. Butter makers should remember these few short rules: . The newer and sweeter the cream, the sweeter and higher flavored will be the butter. The air must be fresh and puro- in the room'or cellar where the milk is set. , The cream should not remain on the milk over thirty-six hours. Keep the cream in tin pails, or stone pots, into which put a spoonful of salt at the beginning, then stir the cream lightly each morning and evening; this will pre vent the cream from mouldering or sour ing. Churn as often as once a week, and as much oftener as circumstances will per mit. Upon churning, idd the cream upon all the milk in the dairy. Use nearly an ounce of salt to a pound of butter. Work the butter over twice, to free it from the buttermilk and brine, before lum ping and packing. Be certain that it is entirely free from every particle of buttermilk, coagulated milk, and it will keep sweet forever. In Scotland, a syphon is sometimes usedto separate the milk from the cream, instead of skimming the pans. . HOW TO MAKE SWEET POTATO PcD- diicg. -Take half a peund of sweet pota toes, wash them and put them into a pot with a very little water, barely enough to keep them from burning. Let them sim mer slowly for about half an hour; they must be only parboiled, otherwise they will be soft, and make the pudding heavy.- When they are half done, take them out, peel them, and when cold, grate them. Stir together to a cream half pound of but ter and six ounces of powdered sugar, add a grated nutmeg, a large tea-spoonful of beaten mace, the juice and grated peel of a lemcn, a wine glass of rose water, a glass of wine and glass of brandy. Stir these ingredients 'well together. , Beat eight eggs very light, and stir them into the mixture in turn with - the sweet potato, a little at a time of each.' Having stirred the whole very hard at the last, put it into j a butter dish, and bake it three quarters of i an hour." Eat it cold. ! 5S"A lady promised her servant girl five dollars as a marriage portion.

Suhscribeimmediatelyforthispaper Jack Rink and the Yankee. We find the following in one of our' ex changes without credit. We should not like to vouch for its truth, but if it serves to excite the , risibles of the reader, it will doubtless accomplish the object of its au thor: : ' ' ' ' C Few communities are more strongly im bued vith a passion for horse-racing than ihe good "people ofrNatchexr New York folks talk "soge," and "engine;" in Paris they talk opera; in Natchez they talk horse. They believe in the quadruped and noth ing else. To own the fatest horse in Nat chez is to enjoy the simple honor of com parison with which a member of Con gress sinks into nothingness. In Obtober last, the "fall meeting," took place, and led to more than the usual quantity of excitement and brandy cock tails. The last xace of the day was a sort of a "free fight," open to every horse that had never won a race ; purse 500, en trance $25. . Among those who proposed to go in was a Yankee peedler, with a sorrel colt of rather promising proportions. He thus addressing one of the judges: "I say, captain, I should like to go in for that purse." "With what?" "That sorrel colt." "Is he speedy ?" "I calculate he is or I would not wish to risk a load of tin ware on the result." "Do you know the term T 'Like a book- puss $500, and entrance fee $25 and ther's the dimes. Here the Yankee drew out a last centu ry wallet, and brought up two X's and a Among those who witnessed the operation was Jack Rink, of the Bclvue House. Jack saw his customer, and immediately meased him for an entertainment. After the usual fuss and palaver, the horses were brought out saddled, and prepared for , a single heat of two 'miles. There were eight competitors beside the Yankee. The latter was a smart sorrel roll, with a fine eye and a lift of the leg that indica ted speed and bottom. "Bring up your horses," said the Judge. The horses were brought up the Yan kee gathered up his reins and adjusted his stirrups. While doing this Mr. Rink went to the rear of the sorrel colt and pla ced a chestnut burr under his taiL That moment the order to "go" was giyen. and away went nine horses of all possible ages and conditions. The Yankee's was ahead and kept there. "Tin "Ware" was evi dently pleased with the way things were working, and smiled a smile that seemed to say, "that puss will be mjne in less time than it would take a greased nigger to slide down a liberty pole." Poor fellow he hadn't reckoned on that chesnut burr. The "irrant" that Jack Rink had administered, not only increased the animal's velocity, but his ugliness. He not only ran like a deer, but he refused to do anything else. As the Yankee approached the Judges' stand, he undertook to pull up but it was no go. He might as well have tried to stop a thunder-bolt with a yard of fog. The Yankee reached the stand the Yan kee passed the stand the Yankee went down the road. When last seen the Yan kee was passing through an adjoining county at a speed that made the people look at him as "that comet," that was to make its appearance in the fall of '54. Where the sorrel colt 'gin out it is impos sible to say. All we know is, that the Yankee has never been heard of from that day to this, while his wagon of tin ware still makes one of the leading attractions in the Museum of Natchez.
