Tbe following let ter, published in a newspaper of Ibe period happily bitsolT tbe miseries of e man with carpet hag, searching for lodging Nr. As a stranger In this town, per haps I shall be cxcoFcd lor addressing yon on a topic which may provo amusing to some ol your traveling readers, and prevent a series of mortifications to which from tbe accidental circumstance of car rying a carpet lag, tbey may be exposed. I arrived from tbe country on Monday afternoon last, having traveled the whole of the way ontaido of tbe coach. On ul lighting, I was as miserable as torpid cir culation and pinching cold could make me. 1 bad still energy enough left, how ever, to givo tbo coachman bis customary feo, and with toy luggage, wbicb consist ed only of a carpet bag, containing a change of apparel, aud other matters, to set out in search of a tavern in which I vVas likely lo enjoy tbe comforts of a good fire and a night's lodging. You will ask why I did not at once take up my quar ters at the bouse where the coach stopped and wbicb, I bad been informed, affords excellent accomunodationat a reasonable price? I answer, tbat I have always had an objection to tbo bustle of a coach inn; and 1 may add, I fancied I could get cheaper quarters elsewhere. Whether I was justified in this conclusion I will not slop to argue; you most take tbo facts as they come. I turned into the Bowery, and went tuto the first coffee house which met my eye; I do not know tbo sign. On eutcriog tbe coffee room, I placed my carpel bag on the table, and commenced freeing myself from tbe wrapper wbicb snrrounded my throat, at the same time ringing the hell for tbo waiter. A smirk tug chap soon eutered, and casting a look at uy uag, ana tnen at me, asked me what I wauled? I replied, A steak for my dinner, and a bed for the night. I'm afraid wo an't got no bed to tparc, sir, said be, but I'll go and ask missis; and then taking another look at me, and a second at my carpet big, out be flounced. I (bought this uncivil, but hid not long to wait before he returned; and witb a sort of would-be knowing look, be in formed me hi missis hadn't a bed to spare, but I might have a steak if I liked. I don't likel taid I; and taking up my bag, eff I went in no pleasant mood. It wa not long before I discovered another house, Into w hich I popped, and was met by a pretty girl in tbe paesige. Pray, my dear, said 1, can I have a bed bere to night? -She eyed me from top to toe, and more particularly fixed her atlculion on my carpet bag. No, indeed, my dear, said tbe, laying a stress on the latter word, you cannot, o yon may walk yourself and your carpet bag off. Well, thought I, that's cool at any rale and I very soon took ber tdv lce. A third house wa cot fir distant, and here again I made my entrance; but Lad not reached the door of the parlor, when a voice from tbe bar exclaimed, Ob, here' the fellow with tbo carpet big! Tbomaa, Thomas, come and show bim out! and, sure enough, before I could ask a question I was iikeu by (be shoulders, and gently poshed into Ibe meet, witb a poiile in timation that they were 'fly lo tbe carptt bag, and so 1 might 'miwle.' Well, I ! ".- " """ thought, Ihi. 1 city politeness with a on 1 went.

Do you? said he; then you'll Cod one eUt'wbere, lorjou shau't stuff your carpet bag at my expense! aud out be pushed me. to defiance of all my ex posiQiaiiou. .Never was pour devil so incensed; I was completely at a Iom I discover tbo cause of this treatment. It bad dow become daik, and my anxiety fjr a lodging becamo till greater. I ! solved upou one mot experiment, how- ever, before I gave myself up to despair, and seeing a sixth houso of a very tempt ing description, iu I marched, and p proucbing a good looking woman in the bar, I ruado my best bow, and asked ber if I could be accommodated with my din uer aud a lodging for tbe night? Certain ly, air, said she, with a smile, and in a loud loue, called William.tbe waiter, and Betty, tho chambermaid. Bulb came in a trice; and tbe landlady, pointing to me, said, This gentleman wants a bed and his dinner; show bim into No. 2, Betty; and you William, take (he gentleman' order for dinner. William and Betty hesitated, both scanning me, aud my carpet bag more particularly, wiib as much surpriso as if tbey had uevcr seen two such ob jecta before; and at the samo moment putting their head towards their mistress I could hear (hem whisper, Carpet bag! Iu an instant II. 0 smile of the hostess turned (0 a frown; and, without further explanation, she exclaimed, looking orcr tbe bur at the same time at my unfortu nate carpet bag, No, sir; we have no room; It won't do here; aud for tbe sixth time I waa sent forth on my advcnturei. I now became thoroughly enraged, but suddenly reccollccting that, by law, vie- tuillera, are obliged to receive traveller!, Iresolvcd (o bo no longer trilled with, and for tbe seventh and lust time.cutorcd a bouse in Pearl street, wbero without ceremony, I walked Into tbo coffee room, threw my carpet bag under tbo tabic, took off my great coat, and desired the waiter to get me a beef eteak oyster sauce, aud potatoes, lee, air, was tbe quick reply. The order was given to the cook in an audible voice, Nice rompslcak boister 6auce, and lalora for one ! Tbe cloth was laid, and in less time than 1 could have expected, I wa discussing tbe merits of the viands laid before me. Good meat, thought I, requires good drink, and I ordered, in a breath, a pint of porter and a pint of sherry. Yes, sir, said my attendant again, and witb equal rapidity they were placed bofoce me. Tho follow, in turning round from me on Ibis occa sion, observed my carpet bag under tho tho opposite table. Halloa! said be, whoso is this here carpet bag? 'Tie mino I replied. Had I confessed myself a kan garoo or a rhinoceros, I do not think I could have produced more astonishment than by thi admission, and I could ob serve him look round the room to the as sembled guests, as if he expected them to join to his surprice. Still I bad no sus- sicion that tkere was anything In my, bag or in my appearance, to attract extra ordinary attention; so, without further reflection, 1 fiuished my dinner, and cal led for a pint of port. On this being brought in, I put tbe old question, Can I bo accomodated with a bed? No, in deed, you rsannot, Mr. Carpet bag! said be shaking his impudent face close to mine. This was past all endurance.and I declar ed I would not stir out of the bonso that night. Won't you indeed? said be; we'll soon see about tbat, and out he went. Tbe persona in the room regarded me with idc-loug glance ol doubt; but before I could make any remark upon what had occurred, in came Mr. Waiter with a policeman. That's him, said he, pointing to me. That's who? roared I with iodignailon; what have yon to ssy tome? Tbe policeman, who seemed a decent fellow of his sort, begeed of me not to be violent; be believed, be said, I had a carpet bag? I Lave, replied 1; and what tbcu? Duly I should like to look into tt, sir, said he. Pit be if yon shall, retorted I. Ha! Ha! auhecred Ibe wsiier, I thought how it would be. 1 now became perfectly outrageous, and demanded of the policemen if be took me for a felon? No, sir, said be; but the fact is a man with a carpet bag ha been go Ing round lo the different lavcrns in town, plundering the landlords, and a caution lo this effect having appeared in tbe public papers, suspicion has arisen tbat you may be the msn with the carpet big, and I have been called to lo ascertain tbe fact. The civility of tbe fellow, and ibe ludicrous, although vexations, cause of all my waudcringi, being thu cx- j plained, I conld not but smile at my sitn- &UoB' uut determined at once to Justify i character.

OLU TIMK MILITIA Mill fc.lt. Tba ruda militia com; auics, according to law, mci twice a ytar at their rcapoe- live head-quarter for a day's drill and in struction. Tbe regiment wa aaaembled one a year, usually iu the mouth of May, at the county town, where it was man wuvred and Instructed rather alter Dry- dcu system than cither of those pre scribed by Congret. Preparatory and for three day imuie diately preceding the general muster, the officer of all arm wic assembled and drilled together a a light Infantry com paoy, commanded by tbeir field-ofllcers Tbey were instructed ia the manual of arms, company tactics, regimental ma ntt uvrcs, aud wouud up by a cercmoni. ou rchrrsal of the part they were to play in tbe grand review next day. Although this company exhibited the eVi'fe of our regimental splendors, glitter ing with tinsel and flaunting with featb ers, a more heterogeneous and unaoldierly parado could scarcely bo immagined. There were the elect from tbo mountains, wbo sometimes marched to tbo rendez vous barefoot, carrying tbicr boot aud soldier clothe iu a bundle the ambitious cobblers, tailors, aud ploughboys from crossroad hamlet and remote rural (lis tricls, short, tall, fat, skinny, bow legged, sheep-shanked, cock-eyed, hump- shouldered and sway-backed equipped by art as economically , awkwardly aud variously as they were endowed by na ture, uniformed in contcmplof all uni formiiy, armed with old fliut-lock inuskots, horsemen's carbines, long squir, rcl riflce, double-bancllcd shot-guns, bell muzzled blunderbusses with side-arms of as many different patterns, from tbe old dragoon sabre that had belonged to Harry Lee's Ixgion,to the slim-basket- Lilted rapier which had probably graced the thigh of some of our French allies in tho revolution. Tho ofllcers oftho volun tcer compauies, on the other hand, were generally selected for thoir handsome ap pcaranco aud martial bearing, and shone wiih a certain clegauca of cqulpmcuti each in tho uniform pertaining to hit company . Thero was a sprinkling of ex veterans of 1812 rccogniziblo by a certain martinet precision In their deportment, and a shadow of contempt for their crude comrades, but quick to resent any extran eous comment derogatory lo tho service. A city dandy wbo undertook lo ridicule tho old-fashioned way in which somo of the officer carried their swords, was silenced by the snappish reply: Young man, I've, seen the best troops ofGrcut Britain bealoo by meii who carried their swords in that way. This hbrlcquinado of cqtilpmcut, cob- tutnc, aud character was duly paraded twice a day, marched through tbe streets, and put through its ruanu'iivrcs on the green common adjoining our village, much to the satisfaction of all emanci pated school boys, negroes, ragamuffins, idlers, taveru keepers, and cake and beer venders, and somowbat, perhaps, to tho weariness of our Quaker element, indus trious mechanics wbo have apprentices lo manage, and busy housewives who do ponded on litllo ncgroc for help. Then came tbo great day of days, when all vulgar industry was for the time sus pended, and all hopes of domestic disci pline deferred. Even the law students were conslrainod to closo their commen taries on Blackslotie, aud as they met at the bar woull learnedly observe (between glass of whiskey and a quid of to bacco), Inter anna silent legcr. But bow we school boys leaped at the first lap of tho reveille, eager for tho real ization of our golden dreams! How hopefully we scanned tbe eastern horizon for assurance of a claar day ! Witb what miserly delight wo counted ovjr our stock of coppers, boarded for the occasion, and calculated their equivalent to cakes, beer, and sticks ol tsffy! How doubt fully we considered the worn effigy of Gcorgiu Hex, on a coin we had found in a dirt pile, and wondered if we could pass it in old Murquhart for a gunger! Then how we watched tho dusty roads as tbe wild mountaineer came trooping in to swell tbo buzzing swarm already gathered around the taverua, groccrie and street corner! And with what sub lime emotion we mingled wiih tho crowd, saw tbo plumed heroes hurrying to and fro, as with ceaseless rub-a-dub-dubbing, sound of bugle, waviugof banners, flash ing of swordu, with tbe thunder of tbe captain and tboutiug, this incoherent and refractory mob was at length marsh alled into aome semblance of a line of hat tic! Then the march afield, witb its ex citing accident and incident, tevcral hour of tactical mana-uvrcs, sacb a we might Imagine Sitting Bull and staff would execute witb a herd ofbnffaloei.
