'? lie was a lazy rapscallion, and lived in a log .-hanty. with a dilapidated. patient, suffering wife, surrounded bvahostof tow-headed children. Occasionally he made up a lotofaxe helves and traded them off for sugar and tea ; in other fits of industry, he would do a day's work in the hay field for a neighbor, hoe the potatoes in bis own little patch. or pound clothcs for his wife on a wash ing day. JIc would wander off from his wife, leaving her to suffer actual want, except when relieved by the neighbors. People were get ting very tired of Brigham when Mormontsui turned up. Ht was just the man for the reli gion, and tho religion seemed expressly adapted to him. Jle became an exhorter. held neighnor hood meetings, ranted and howled his doctrines into the minds of others as weak as himself, and finally went West with the rest of them, where he has developed his powers until the poor, mis erable. rustic loafer is Governor ot n territory and the chitl' prophet of a great religious sect. He ha.-just the mixture of shrewdness and folly which is required for success in fmaticism or quackery. A wiser man could not hold his place. A man must be half fool and half knave to be a successful quack." \ir A very pleasant soiree was given by the American Legation at Paris, just before the sail ing of the last steamer, which was presided over by .Mrs Mason and her three charming daughters, as a welcome to Dr. Bigelow. the physician or the Legation, who had just returned from a matri monial excursion to Lis nativerity, Boston, where he found a beautiful wife in the person of Miss Bartou. also of that city. ?toMir, A Be\r OCT or THE Road ?The Ban gor Whig says that one night last week.ms the stage from Calais was passing alonr lieyond Au rora, a biu big l>ear was discovered sitting v:*ry composedly in the middle of the road, antlas he declined to yield the right of way, the driver and passengers turned to and stoned him ofi the track.

The following extract from a New York cannot ftil to be interesting. In referring to. the receipts of Teas in tills country for onef year up to 3l'th ultimo, it say s they will be 12.- L ???,?? pounds short of tlie imports of tne year end ing J une 30,1 ASH, and that "The advance in black teas. Oolongs, since last December, has l?en hlteen cents per pound; and i onng Hyson Tens, of |i>w and medium grades, have rspcriPiicrtl an advance of ono hundred per cent, over last sen son's closing prices. "It will thus l?? sren that the strong arid rapid advance in the ten market has been the result of i? short supply and acMvo demand ; but when it iscon sidered that we inn* hear at any moment of the en tire suspension ol shipments at Shanghai, and. in fact, that, as soon as a Miiii'Ment lorce from England arrives at the seat of war. all hve ports of entry iu China, will proUtbly l>e placed unrler strict blockade, it would not be surprising to see Tens a! a much hither hgure than the* have vet attained."
