SWALLOWING OYSTERS ALIVE.
At a late hour, the other night, the door of s
oys'er house in our city was thrust open.
talked a hero from tpe Sucker State. He was
quits six feet high, spare, somewhat stooped, with
u hungry, anxious countenance, nnd Ml hands
pushed clear down to the bottom of his breeches
pockets. His outer covering was hard to define;
but after surveying it minutely, we came to the
conclusion that bis suit had been made in hi boy
heed of a dingy, yellow linscy-wulsey, nnd that,
having sprouted up with astonishing rapidity, be
had been forced to piece it out with all dolors, in
order to keep pace with bis body. In sp to of bis
exertional however, he had fuller in arrears about
a font of the necessary length, and consequently,
smelt that far through bis inexpressibles. His
crop 6T heir Was surmounted by the funniest little
teal skin rap Imaginable. After taking a position,
he indulged in a long starn at the man opening the
hib'tlves, and slowly ejaculated "lstern?"
"Yes, sir," responded the attentive operator; 'and
fine ones they nre, too.
"Well, Ive beam toll of inters Kfore," leys be,
"but. ibis is tho fu,t time I've seed 'cm, and pre
hips I'll know viUmthar made of afo: 1 git out

Having expressed this desperate intention, he
cautiously approached a plate, and scrutinized ibe
uncswted eneU-f&ah with a gravity mid interest which
would have done honor to the most illustrious
searcher into the hidden mysteries of nature. At
leagth bsrbogeji to seliloqoixeon the difficulty of get

"I never seed any thin hold on so 'takes nn

Smooth as nn eel! I've a good mind to give thai
tv'.lar lodgins. jeet to realize the effects, as uncle
Jess used to say about spebelation."
"Well, sir," was the reply, down with two bits,
and you can have a dozen."
"Two bit-!" exclaimed the Sttektr, "now conn;
that's stickin it on rito strong) boss, for inters. A
dozen on 'em amt nnthin' 10 a chicken, and there S
no gittin more'n a picayune a piece for tk't. I've

offer whs accepted.
"Now mind," repented the Sucker, ''a' fair
two chickens for a dozen you're witness, mister, '
turning at the same time to the wag; "none of your
tricks, for I've beam tell that your city Allan are
mity slip'ry coons "
The batgein being fairly understood ( our Sucker
squared himself for the cutset deliberately pot'off
his seal ikln, tttcked up his sleeves, and , fork in
hand, awaited the appearance of No. 1 . It came
he saw and quickly it wait b died.' A moment'
dreadful pause ensued. Tho wag dropped bis
knife and fork with a look of mingled amazement
and horror something akin to Shakespeare's Ham
let on seeing his daddy's ghost, while ho bu6t
into the rxclarnntion
"Swallowed alive, ns I'm a christian!"
Our Sucker hero had openod his month with
pleasure a moment before, but now it stood open.
Fear a horrid dread of he did'nt know what a
( onscioulness that was'nt right, und ignorance ofthe
extent oft he wrong.- -the uncertainly t dui mo
ment was terrible. Urged to desperation ho falter
"What on airth's the row?"
"Die! you swallow it alive! " enquired the wag.
"1 swnllcred it jist ns bo gin it to mei" shouted
'You're a deed man!" excUImed bis anxious
friend; "ths ereulure ii alive nnd will eat tight
through you" idded be in a most hopeless tone
"Get a piten pump ami pump it out!" screamed
the Sucker, In a frensy, his eyes fairly starting
from their sockets. "Oh, gracious! what 11 I dol
It's tot hoi I of my innards, already, and I am
dead as a chicken'. do sometbin1 for me, do don't
Jet t'-e infernal sea-toad eat me ufnre your eyes."
"Why don't you put some of this on it" Inquired
the wag, pointing to a bottle of strong pepper
The hint was enoughthe Sucker, upon the
instant, Mttd the bottle, and desperately wrenching
nut the cork, swallowed half the contents at a
dranrht. lie fairly squealed from the effects, and
MIAMI, nnd blnwnd. and nitched and twisted, as if
it were coursing through him with electric effect,
while at ibe same time his eyes ran a stream of tears.
At length, becoming a little composed, bis waggish
advisor appronebnd, almost bursting With suppress
ed laughter, and enquired,
"How ore you now, old fellow? did you kill iiT"
"Well. I did. boss iib-uxh-o-o-o my innards.
If that itter critter's dig agonies did'nt stir a
ruction in me equal 'to a small oirtbquake, then
'mint no use laylo' it it squirmed like a serpent
when that killing stuff touched it; bill" and here,
with a countenance made up of suppressed agony
and present determination, he paused as if to give
force to his words, and slowly and deliberately re
marked "If you get twocnicaenstrom me lor wiai
live animal I'm d d!" and seizing his seal skin, he
vanished. The Bhout of laughter , and the contor

ported iu the Senate by Mr, Berrien, from the
committee on the judiciary, to amend the nat
sj rati tat ion laws. This being a subject of the
highest interest jivst nov to mtay of our read
rrs we publish the subjoined synnpsij of the
bill from the National Intelligencer:
The bill proposes to enart that Collectors
nf the Revenue at all the. ports of the United : s
Siaies shall open and keep books of registry, I
iu which, at the request ofany alien arriving in
the United States, his name, age stature, etc ,
shall be registered, and a certificate of such
registry granted to tl e said alien.
The Clerks of Courts of the United States
may at any time, being at least three years
after such regis try on presentation of the
certificate thereof, record the declaration of
the intention of said alien to become perma
nently acitixen of the United Slates, and grant
Two years after the record of such declar
ation, and live years alter the regis I ry bclore
mentioned, on the exhibition of the ccrtifi
caies of registry and declaration, and on proof j
of good character and attachment to the Con-
stitution and Government of the United
States, in any Court of the United States,
such alien may be admitted lo become a citi-
i zen of the United States, on certain conditions !
I the most important of JVhlCn appears to be
that he shall have resided at least one year
preceding the application in the State or Dis
trict In which the Court i held. No duplicates
of such certificates of citizenship or registry
shall ever be issued, except upon proof in
Court and public advertisement of the h ss
of tho original. Children under sixteen years
of age at the time of arrival in the country
are not reouired to produce certificates of re-
pistrv or rtorlaration (if intention, if thev arc-
proved to have been live years resident ana
'IHic must conservative provision of the
bill is the next in order, viz: That no decree
of naturalization shall be made, or certificate
of naturalization granted, within
months before the time ofany election of Pres
ident or Vice President of the V, States, or of
the electors thereof, or within -months
of the lime of any general election in the
particular State or District In which the ap
plication is made; and such decree and Certif
icate shall confer no right or privilege of cit
izenship whatever, except in the State or Dis
trict wherein the same may be granted, for the
term of monthi after the date thereof.
Decrees and c.ertfiicates discovered to have
been obtained by fraud or false pretences,
muy, upon hearing in Court after previous
notice,be set asidei and all persons concerned
in such evas on of the law,;, may be punished
as for high misdemeanor.
Persons now in the United Stales may, at
any time within six months after the passage
of this bill, avail themselves of the general
provisions ol u to become naturalized with
out the previous registry required of aliens
hereafter arriving in the United Slate.
The provisions of the bill which we have
thus abridged, into a law, would, we have no
doubt, guard against the mass of the abases
which are known to have been perpetrated
under the existing laws, and accomplish a
salutary and effective reform of our system

PALLING IN LOVE
Believing as I da, that fall ' n in love gets
by destiny, and that, of all affairs, those of tho
heart are those for which there is the least
accounting, I have always thought, that tn
give reasons for its happening, is throwing
the said reasons away a waste mnch to be
deprecated in an age where reasons are in
such great request. It is not heautv thm in-
