Old deacon M. was the only store-keeper in
a pretty village "up country," and used to
take great pleasure in catelhising the youth
who might visit his store. One stormy day,
business dull, the deacon was quietly smoking
by the side of a cheerful fire, when a ragged
urchin entered, who seemed a fit subject on
which the deacon might exercise his question
ing powers. The deacon drew a long whiff,
then pulled out his pipe, and exhailing a long
column of smoke, called the lad to him, and
patting him on the shoulder, said:
"Well, my son, what's the strongest thing
you know of?"
The lad thought a moment, then scratching
his bump of communicativeness through a
hole in his hat, answered:
"I reckon marm knows, she's tarnel strong
herself-she can lick dad at any time-and she
said that the butter I got here tother day was
the strongest thing she ever seed yet, for that
was so strong she couldn't hold it arter she got
it down." The deacon asked no more ques
tions of that 'little shaver.'
A sheriff's officer was sent to execute a writ
against a quaker. On arriving at the house,
he saw the quaker's wife, who, in reply to his
inquiry whether her husband was at home, an
swered in the affirmative, and at the same
time requested him to be seated, and her hus
band would speedily see him. The officer
waited patiently some time, but the fair qua- i
keress coming into the room, he reminded her
of her promise that he should see her husband. I
"Nay, fiiend, I promised that he would see
thee. He has seen thee. He did not like thy
looks; therefore, he avoided thee, and has left
the house by another path."
When my grandmother (long since in heav
en) was about three years of age, she was ta-:
ken to a funeral of a deceased playmate. The
tiltle corpse was lying in its coffin, around
which flowers were strewn; and she, being
lifted up, kissed its cold cheek, and whispered:
<<Ptn.ýen `rves my 1( f n (THAI")
This strikes me as the sweetest expression I
ever heard made by a child.
A good man once said that soon after his
marriage, his circumstances were so straiten
ed that he was sometimes destitute of the ordi
nary comforts of life. One morning his wife
called him to breakfast, which consisted of dry
bread, molasses, and water. Observing that
she was much dejected, he cheerfully said, 'my
dear, this is better than the promise. We read
that bread shall be given us, and water shall
be sure; but we have more than this.' The
happy remark dispelled the gloom from the
lady's mind, and they often afterwards spoke
of that meal as the sweetest they ever enjoyed.
Getting into debt is getting into a tanglesome
net; but do not be disheartened; the next best
thing to keeping out of debt, is to get out of it
as quickly as possible, and I do not see any
reason why, if your health is spared, you
should not set all to rights yet.
The Richmond Post relates an anecdote of
"the ruling passion strong in death."
I was told of a noted gambler living in the
city of New Orleans. Betting was a mania
with him, and the argument which he adopted
to settle any controversy. Whatever might be
the character of the debate, his strongest reply
to an antagonist was, "I'll bet you." That
scourge of New Orleans, the yellow fever made
its appearance. While it was raging most fierce
ly and carrying off hundreds, daily, the gam
bler was attacked. Medical attendance was
secured, and everything that skill could do was
done to save his life. But the fever was stron
ger than the doctor, and at last he was told
"Sir must die andif you have any arrangements
to make, attend to them speedily."
"Doctor," said the sick man, "how long will
1 live?"
"Not more than three hours," was the re
ply.
"Doctor, are you perfectly certain that I can
not live more than three hours?" queried the
patient.
"1 am, sir, you may live that long, but the
probabilities are, that your end will come in a
shorter space."
"Well, but you are mistaken, doctor, and I'll
bv.t you my f;ineral expenses that I will live six
hours, just double what you assign me."
The physician was astonished at such cool
ness and hardihood, but remembering with
whom he had to do, accepted the bet,and wait
ed the result. The fellow lived through the'
six hours, secured the amount of his stake,and,
while chuckling over his triumph, was seized
with a spasm and died.
Clarissa, (in a tremendous hurry,) Oh, Liz
zv, dear, I can't stop; I've just run in to say'
that Mr. Simpkins proposed last night; I de-I
clare I havn't got over it yet.
Lizzy (all alive,) Lor, love, you don't say
so? Well, that is nice!
Clarissa, (quite joyously,) yes, dear, aint
it? I told him I must have my own way in
ev'ry thing, or I couldn't love him, no! not a bit.
Lizzy, (with eyes and ears open to their full
est extent,) and what did he say to that Clarry,
darling?
Clarissa, (out of breath,) oh. lie agreed,
dear, he agreed; and so it's settled, we are to
have the "bridal room" at St. Nicholas, and I
am to have as many dresses as I like, and moth
er can come and live with us, and he'll always
be at home at six; oh, I'm so happy. Good
bye, dear, good bye. [Exit.]
The savans of Paris are going to introduce
the dioscorea japonica as a substitute for the
potatoe. It is a tubercular vegetable with ai
more delicate flavor than the potatoe. It will
be funny, till we get used to it, to ask Bettyi
to "peal the dioscorea japonica" for dinner,
wont it?
ADVICE TO A YOUNG LAwrEa--The follow
ing is the advice of an examing judge to al
young lawyer, on admission: "Sir, it would be
idle to trouble you further. You are perfect,
and I will dismiss you with a few words of ad
vice, which you will do very well to follow.-
You will find it laid down as a maxim of civil
law, never to kiss the maid when you can kiss
the mistress. Carry out this principle, sir, and
you are safe. Never say "boo" to a goose,
when she has the power to lay golden eggs.
Let your face be long--your bills longer.
Never put your hand in your pocket when any
body's else's is hand-. Keep your consci
enee for your own private use, and don't trou- '
ble it with other men'smatters. Look as wise
as an owl, and be as oracular as a town clock.
A fellow who took the liquor movement in
hand, found it took him to his back.
Tho Baltimore Patriot says, the sidewalks
have been embellished for a few evenings past
with the sight of numbers of pretty young la
dies, wearing a head dress of a peculiar novel
r and striking character. It is composed of a
sort of wreath of interwoven ribbons of many
colors, prolonged behind into long pennants
that float out upon the air like streamers at the
mast head, describing an infinity of curves un
known to trigonometry, which catch the hearts
of their beholders in their intricate mazes.
This new head gear is called the "know noth
ing wreath, as we are informed, and like every
thing else about know nothingism, is very start
ling and unexpected.
"Shall I help you to alight?" said a young
t gentleman, addressing a bouncing country girl
who was preparing to jump from a carriage,
in front of our office, "Thank you, sir," she
said sweetly; "but I don't smoke."
As the lovely cedar is green throughout the
barrenness of winter, so shall the christian
alone flourish amid the winter of death, and
t bloom in immortality.
The vulgar mind fancies that judgment is
r implied chiefly in the capacity to censure; and
yet there is no judgment so exquisite as that
which knows properly how to approve.
An honest Hibernian stopped at a country
inn, in the interior of Massachusetts, and seat
ed himself snugly down by the fire. "What's
the news in this quarter, landlord," said he.
"Nothing," replied the landlord, "only they
say the devil is dead."
Pat said nothing, but in a short time, when
about leaving the house, he walked deliberate
Iv across the room, and deposited three cents
on the bar; the landlord followed, and inquir
ed what.was wanting for the money, when the
following colloquy ensued:
"Ali sure, nothing at all, yer honor."
"Why then did you lay this money on the
bar?"
Arrah, yer honor, and sure, in me own coun
try whenl a poor lad loses his father, its cus
toniary to give him a few coppers, to help to
provide for the wake and funeral."
A gentleman was once negotiating with a
New Hampshire horse-dealer for the purchase
of the mare, but could not agree by ten dol
lars. Next morning however, making up his
mind to split the differance, lie posted off to the
stable, when the first person he met was the
groom. "Master up, Joe?" he inquired.
I No, master be dead," said Joe: "but lie left
word for you to have the mare." Yankees
never lose a trade.
A correspondent of the National Intelligen
cer writing from Florida, gives an incident in
relation to a prayer offered by request during
a drought, by a venerable preacher who bore
no good will to the baptists. His prayer was
somewhat remarkable forits unselfish tone, and
ran in this wise:
"Let it rain, beginning at my plantation, in
Hamilton county, coming down to the religious
neighborhoods of Columbia and Nassau, where
immersion is not practiced, and reaching Black
creek-even Black creek-and bringing forth
in abundance-none of your little "nubbins,"
however, but long ears-as long as this good
right arm."
A yankee, out walking in Wheeling, Virgi
nia, while to himself talking, experienced a
feeling strange-strange, painful, alarming
from his cap up to his knees, as he suddenly
discovered, he was covered over with bees.
They rested on his eyelids, and perched upon
his nose, they colonised his peaked face, and
swarmed upon his clothes. They explored his
swelling nostrils, and dived deep in his ears,
they crawled up his 'trowsers,' and filled his
eyes with tears. Did he yell like a hyena?
Did he holler like a lion? Was he 'sccart,'and
did he 'cut and run?" Or did the 'critter'
swoon?" Neither one. He wasn't 'scar't' a
mite. He never swoons or 'hollers,' but he
hived them in a sfihall tight keg and sold them
for two dollars.
Three mnseries of a man's house-a smo
king chimney; a leaky roof, and a scolding
wife.
A student in want of money sold his books;
and wrote home, "father, rejoice, for now I de
rive my support from literature."
The words which 'fell' from an 'orator's
mouth' were taken up uninjured, and attached
to those that 'hung on his lips.'
Young America is an evanescent, quicksil
very globule of creation. Hie comes into the
world on his knees, flitters through it on a cloud
Sof steam, and leaves it by a misplaced switch

failed to carry off the first premiusm-on one occasion
was awarded a beautiful silver medal. Our mills also
took two first premiurls, as the best mills, at two annual
fairs of our Mechanics' Institute.
Also-Portable SAW MILLS, to be run by steam,
water or horse power. This mill was exhibited in op
eration by horse power, at the Ohio State Fair, in 1850,
when it was awarded a premium and a splendid silver
medal. o
Also--Different klinds of PORTABLE HORSE
POWERS and STEAM ENGINES' All 0our articles, for
ease of operation, simplicity, usefulness and durabil
ity, are surpassed by notie now ii use.o o
All our articles are warranted as represented-or no

For a full description and testimonials of merit and
usefulness we refer those interested to our pamphlet,
Dto be had at our factory, where we take pleasure to ex
plain each article. ° ISAAC STRAUB & Co.
° NOTE.-Mr. Kimball, the partner of J. II. Burrows,
while exhibiting a Burrows' mill, at our State fair, last
fall, was boisterous about Bis mill, and courageously
entered into a verbal agreement with me to grind corn
thus: Whoever grinds the hmost, regarding quality and
quantity was to be the owner of both mills, at each and
every trial: 0
First trial--Straub to run an eighteen inch mill.
" Burrows & Co. to ru?i a twenty inch mill.
2nd trial-Straub to ruria twenty-two inch mill.
Burrows & Co. to run a 24 inch mill.
3rd trial--Straub to run a 26 inch mill.
". Burrows & Co. to run a 30 inch mill.
When the pitp-h came, that boisterous courage slipped
out.
To the above, I now append a challenge to grind cob
feed out of whole ears of corn.
I will run my cighteent inch QUEEN OF THE S.O I, i
with a Cob Breaker attachment, the samue article that
took the Pre!nmum at the Ohio State Fair last fall, against
a twenty.f(iur inch Burrowsn mill, and iVm. Stewart's I
Ohio and Keultucky Stock Feed Mills, both to be run at
once; and if you are apprehensive of a risky business.
you have my entire approbation to run Mr. Pomeroy's
corn crusher as an auxiliary. Should my siagle article
fail to grind equal in quality and quantity to the com
bined productions of the two or three mrills (just as you
please) then you can draw a few hundred dollars as
stakes put up. Come boys, don't he cowardly-there
is nothing like walking straight into the merits of a
thing. ISAAC STRAUB.
To J. II. Burrows &cz'o. nov 9, 1853
