OYSTERS; OR A FASHIONABLE "TAKE-IN." BY IWlftlBtl GREEN, FSQ. Quite an amusing afl'air came off at one of our fashionable hotels a few days since. A dashing young merchant, who had long been a resident of the hotel, and who is noted for his whole-souled hospitality, had been teased for some weeks by a number of female acquaint ances to give an oyster supper to bis friends of both sexes. lie did not relish the idea much, particularly as he believed it was with the oysters and not him that the ladies were so over anxious to spend the evening. He at last, however, consented to give the'fete, re solving in hia own mind to test the friendship of his guests. He is one of those dashing fellows who never do things by halves, and as soon as his decis ion was known, there was no little anxiety among his female acquaintances to receive a , billet aoux, or in more common parlance, " an i invite to the fandango." " Dick," for that is 1 the familiar name by which he is known, invited about forty couples, and made every arrangement to " do tlie thing up brown. The largest parlors, and the extensive dining hall iu the house were engaged expressly for the occasion. Those who were invited con sidered themselves particularly fortunate, and Dick's oyster supper was for many days the main topic of conversation in certain circles of ton ton. Ladies invited to an oyster supper. How romantic, how rechei'che I The evening came. Carriage afler carriage, equipage afler equipage, drove up to the pri vate entrance of the B Hotel, and emp tied at the door precious loads of silks and standing collars, diamonds and kids, laces and goatees, braced up beaux and belles. Dick was at his post, and received his guests with all the politeness of a D'Arcy. The ladies were in an exceedingly happy humor, caused no doubt by bright anticipations of myriads of ovsters?fried, stewed, baked, fricaseed, souped, and scolloped, a la mode. The gents with the prospect of the enjoyment of a good supper directly before them, and sur rounded with the choice of dashing Dick's lady friends, could not possibly prevent being elated into the most joyful mode. Not an invited guest was absent, so anxious, were the ladies to partake of Dick's oysters, and the gents to accommodute the ladies. The parlors were brilliantly illuminated, and at a given signal delicious music from a choice band charmed the ears of his guests and sent them whizzing and skipping through the grace ful polka and the rapturous maznrka. Dick's magnificent hospitality was loudly praised, so charmed were all with his graud preparations for their enjoyment. "Really, Mr. said a young lady to the host, whom he had iuat led through the mazy waltz, " really, I did not anticipate such a bril liant evening. I presumed tnat you merely intended a social gathering, that we might be permitted to enjoy your company, and?" "Ovsters," interrupted Dick, with a smile. '?On! fie, Mr. , I have scarcely thought of oysters during the evening. To be sure the gathering of ladies to an oyster supper is a novelty, but then the novelty is lost in the pleasure of meeting so hospitable a friend as our host on thi? occasion/' "You would flatter me, Miss , and have me believe that I am indebted to your company this evening solely from the pure promptings of I friendship." | " Indeed you are, Mr . , and I warrant if I oysters hud not been mentioned, not one of us 1 would have been absent this evening." ! " You compliment me highly, indeed," replied | the host. At that moment supper was announced, by the band playing the Hunger-inn march. With precise step and military exactness, the gav and happy company proceeded to trie supper room. How their delicate hearta throbbed as they beheld the table filled with covered dishes, all, no doubt, full of oysters. How the ladies al most danced with joy as they beheld mam moth vases with tall and graceful stalks of celery, the indispensable accompaniment to the savory contents of Baltimore shells. They were about to realize the long-wished for privilege of partaking of an out-and-out lyster supper; and, as most of them had not eaten anything for twelve hours, (their anticipations were strong,) it may be imagined that they almost greedily took their seats. That his guests might not suffer any "vexatious delays," mine host had been careful to have a servant at every seat, and no soouer were the companv seated, with Dick at the head of the table, than the regu larly drilled waiters commenced their fashion able manipulations. " One !" cried the steward, and every servant stood erect. "Two!" and each extended a hand across the table. "Three!" and forty hands, from as many waiters, touched the cov er of a dish on the table. The anxiety of the ladies to look upon the dainty eastern luxuries which had been prepared for their dainty appe i tites was now intense, and for once they seem ed to think that the useless table ceremonies of fashion might be dispensed with. "Four!" shouted the steward, and away flew the covers quick as lightning, displaying to the longing eyes of the guests forty carefully prepared i dishes of crackers and cheese! There was ev : ery variety ?old cheese and new cheese, crum j bled cheese, sliced cheese, mild cheese, and . biting cheese; Boston, butter, soda, pilot, su I gar, and forty other kinds of crackprs; yet the ! guests looked bewildered. To the polite ques j tion of the waiter, "Will de lady hao de crum bled or de sliced sheese ?" no answer was given; while, "What crackers will de gentleman pre I ler?" was asked in vaiu. The guests looked at the dishes, at each other, and at the host, j who sat at the head of the table, j " Above the rest. In shape and gesture proudly eminent." Dick pretended not to observe the confusion \ of his guests, but in the most happy manner ordered two slices of cheese with a Boston I cracker well buttered! While the servant was filling the order, Dick talked pleasantly to i those on his right and left, and urged all pre sent to make themselves at home. With the ; hope that oysters would appear in the second course, some who had almost starved them \ selves to give the oysters room, called for a ! ; cracker or a bit of cheese. Dick ate heartily, and hnving satisfied his appetite and none of his guests appearing willing to indulge in his I magnificent repast, he invited them again to I the parlors to resume the raefry dance. But j ' the services of musicians were no long-er need- ; : ed. Some of the ladies were suddenly seised J | with a dreadful headache, others announced I that they were suffering from bad cold?, and j others again were very much fatigued. In , fact, finding that no oysters were to Us had, the j ladies soon excused themselves and left for i WASHINGTON SENTINEL Business cards, not exceeding five line*, for not less than six month*, inserted at half price.

It is Raid that Rome were in such a harry that they would not wait for their car riages. After the ladies were gone, Dick, with a few friends, indulged in the oysters, which had been prepared, but were kept back for a second supper. The hurry of the ladies to get away after supper, satisfied him of their strong attach ment?to hi* suppers?and while enjoying, after their departure, the oysters and champaign with his male friends, he avowed himself n devoted disciple of bachelorism. How the affair got out, we don't know?but certain it is, that no lady can be found who will acknowledge that she attended Dick '* oyster supper at the B Hotel. A Beautiful Picture.?The man who stand.* upon his own soil, who feels that by the law of the land in which he lives?bv the law of civil ized nations?he is the rightful and exclusive owner of the land which ne tills, is by the con stitution of our nature under a wholesome in fluence not easily imbibed from any other Bource. He feels?other things being equal? more strongly than another, the character of a man as the lord of an inanimate world. Of this great and wonderful sphere which, fashion ed by the hand of God, and upheld by His power, is rolling through the heavens, a part is his?his from the centre to the sky. It is the space on which the generation before movea in its round of duties, and he feels him self connected by a link with those who follow him, and'to whom he is to transmit a home. Perhaps his farm has come down to him from his fatner. They have gone to their last home! but he can trace their footsteps over the scenes of his daily labors. The roof which shelters him waa reared by those to whom he owes his being. Some in teresting domestic tradition is connected with every enclosure. The favorite fruit tree waa planted by his father's hand. He sported in boyhood beside the brook, which still winds through the meadow. Through the fields lies the path to the village school of earlier days. He still hears from the window the voice of the Sabbath bell which called hiB father to the house of God; and near at hand is the spot where his parents laid down to rest, and where, when his time has come, he shall be laid by his children ; these are the feelings of the owner of the soil. Words cannot paint them. They flow out of the deepest fountains of the heart, they are the life spring of a fresh, healthv, and generous national character.?Edward Everett. Clerical Wit.?The incident, in the forego ing, of the politician " backing out" from the canvass, reminds us forcibly of a story recently told us by a clerical friend, which struck us at the time as being " too good to be lost." A reverend brother, in a " down east" State, was brought up before an ecclesiastical council, to answer certain grave charge! of immoral and unchristian practices. He assumed an air of indignalion and "injured innocence" at the allegation, and went personally to all his friends in the parish, inviting them to come to his trial, and see for themselves how virtue could triumph over malignant persecution. The day of trial at length came. The church was crowded,and the examination of witnesses began. As the cause advanced, fact after fact, of the most damning character, was brought out in the testi mony ; and when the whole evidence was in, the defendant rose and said: " I confess that the character of the testimony adduced on this trial, as it has advanced, has somewhat stag gered me in the belief of my innoccnce; and now that it is sun med up, I have come to the conclusion that I have been mistaken ! And on the whole, I think you would be doing but simple justice in turning me out of the church, and you can do it m soon as rou please I" Now this strikes us as somewhat '' coot I" Backing Out of a Bad Bargain.?There were several persons in a house where there was a young child some two or three davs old; among them a little bright-eyed boy of some four summers. When the grandmother soon after came in, with the bate in her arms, he was particularly pleased with it, kissed it, and evinced every symptom of delight; asked his aunt where she got it, and was told she bought it of Dr. Adams; then asked how much she gave for it. She told him she paid ten dollars. He then stood by her lap, on which the child was lying asleep, his eyes beaming with intense satisfaction. The babe soon awoke, and squalled vociferously. Instantly his coun tenance fell; and, with almost disgust pictured on his beautiful face, he turned around and said: "Aunty, if 1 was you, I'd take it back t& Dr. Adams, and get my ten dollars!?making such a noise as this I" A Happy Suggestiox.-t-A certain city edi tor is in the habit of writing such an illegible, inconceivable scrawl, that Layard, or any other of the sharp ones who have been so successful iu deciphering the arrow-head inscriptions, would abandon it nt first sight, and assign its origin to the antediluvians. When he has fin ished marking his " proof/' it is a perfect re hash of the article that was "set up," and the sheet is one bewildering mass of crow-cracks and pot-hooks. A waggish typo, who had suf fered from this off-hand mode of chirograph v, suggested the other day that jf the aforesaid editor desired his article put in type in a man ner to correspond more nearly to his ideas, he had better furnish the compositor with the cap tion only.?N. O. Cirscenf. Importance or Tbipi.ks.?One of the earlier founders of the cotton trade in England pur chased an estate in * neighboring county from a peor, for several hundred thousand pounds. The house, with its furniture, was to remain precisely as it stood. When the purchaser took possession, he missed a small cabinet from the hall, worth some three or four pounds. He applied to the late owner about it. "TV'ell," said the noble lord, "I certainly did order it to be removed. It is an old family cabinet, worth more from its associations than anything else. I hardly thought you would have cared about so trifling a matter in so laige a purchase." "My lord," was the characteristic answer, "if I had not all ray life attended to trifles, 1 should not have been able to purchase this* estate; and, excuse me for saying so, perhaps, if your lordship had cared more about trifles, you might not have had to sell it." A gentlemen, the other day, visiting a school, had a book put into his hand for the purpose of examining a class. The word " in heritance" occurring, the querist asked : " What is inheritance?" An*. "Patrimony." " What is patrimony T"' Ahs. " Something left by a father " " What would you call it if l?ft by a mother "Matrimonv."
