TUi; DISCOMIIOftnUATED ANGf.EU; a li:geki or the wissahicom. CHAI'TKU I. JOHN JONES. John Jones was a disciple of Izank Walton. He lived along the Schuylkill, in general, nnd no place iu particular ; any plate between Tunuiqiia nnd Phila delphia, or in either of IUcfo pluses, he considered himself at home' In fact, the deepest nfTiotit which could be ofl'er ed to him was to designate any particu lar locality as his resident?. On such nn occasion John would assume a tragic air and attitude, and exclaim. ' Is nut the valley of the Schuylkill my home? Yes, , wncieter me iippung waters, Ol llm 'hidden river" can be seen or heard, John Jonui is at home.' John had hut two faults, vi... diuiikeiincss anil laziness. While he could get liquor, either forlovu or iiK'tiey. he would never he sober ; und drunk or sober, he would not work. There wa but one thing he would do, and that was full. Morning, noon and night j in season and out of season ; wet or dry, drunk or sob'T, he would fish, and a successful ungler 1m waa too ; sel dom failing to secure a sufficiency of the finny dup s. to purchase n meal, and fill his blai:!( junk bottle with his darling beverage, 'old Monongahely.' though, perhaps, the rye from which it was di-.-tilled, had grown in sight of the Schuyl kill. Often he would start early in the morning for some favorite haunt of the finny tribe, and remain the whole day and part of tho night, engaged in the pleasing occupation of filling his ba-ket aiulemptving his bottle. On one of these occasions ho had gone to a considerable distance up the Wisahicon, without find ing a sati-fuclory location for the exer cise of his calling, when he suddenly heard a splashing iu the water near him, and on looking in the direction of the noi-e, he saw to hit surprise, an enor- moiM catfish, with his head parti)' out of the water, eyeing him intently. Appar ently satisfied with the scrutiny, the cat-fi-h retired, nnd it place was taken by a Minfish, which was, in like manner, suc ceeded by a pik, and this by n perch, and so on, until Jhon had counted a doz en different species of fish, which had all appeared to have the same object in view, viz., that of taking a good stare at their terrible enemy, whom they appear ed to recognize tho moment thty clapped their eyet on him, as was evident fiom tln-ir looks, which were anything but friendly. John w.n rather iilurnind ut first, and had halt a notion of leaving the neighborhood : but here hit pride took lh," u'ar,n liat would I lie world say, j " "J"' ",e 'ouhtah e John 1 J" J- r" ' !'"

' J 1 argue it every man's duly to provide for i.a nun U'nrila tirtur I i-ilv rfi'iinni ,n i these legitimate ways of doing this, vir., j working, fishing, and stealing. The flrt I never 7u and never icill: (he last it disreputable, and therefore unfit for me, and lieaides, the Police have become, so cunning, that il it near about at hard work to escn(K! tiein aa to chop wood. -It it therefore evident that nothing re mains fur me but to flth, and flrii I will. Ah! if I had those rascal that hare bten staring ut savagely at roc for the last ten minutes. I would hare linunruii.! ' lodrinc for a week, and a new shirt to 1 boot. Ht III I don't like their Inokt ; I ' never taw och eyewbefort, and all of .l . t .v.it . I I.'. iucuu vt muuyuv aiuus (vv. il t ilu there's something up. hot n'importo. I'll fling them a fly at all hatanU, wid If the worttromc to Ihc worst, tfy mn't nn fw Innd.' Now John had forgotten, thai after absorbinc the contents of hi boi tie, which he had this day completed much earlier than ujital, he could not run very well on Und hiuwc'f, nnd il seems never to have entered hit mind, that by any ponible contingency, he might lie reduced to the necessity of try ing how he could run in tcatrr. lie this as it may, he now proceeded to business in goml earnest, adjusted the fly upon the hook, knd approaching the hank of the deep pool, with nil the rtcadincu he could command, he threw the linf with n ikill nnJ precision that would have cx cilul the admiration of Izank W niton himself. Soaicelv had Ihe flv touched the water when it was Inkeu. nnd with such an unexpi-cled energy, that John, who had not calculated on tha fish biting as 'savagely' as they looktd. lost hit bal ance and plunged head foremost into the drink. Down, down, and down he went und still came to no bottom. Ho never knew there was tiny water in the Wis suhieon half so deep. At first hit ideas were so much confused hy Ihc sudden in version of U portion, assisted perhaps, by the ununnled coolue.-s of the bever age, of which, though iiueh against hi will, hc was forced lo partake rather hugely, that hu could neither see nor hear any thing distinctly. All that he knew was, that he was still going down. Gradually, however, hit cye and cars became accustomed to the strnngo me dium by which they were surrounded. lie now perceived to his surprise, that lie still held on to his fishing rod. Look ing further, he discovered his line, nnd nt the end of it, the very identical cat fih which had stared at him out of the water, 'towing him down, and lookini: back at him over its shoulder,' with an expression of roguish malice, which was, to ue his own expression, 'horribly pro voking.' Casting his eyes around him. he perceived that he was surrounded by an immense school of fl-hes of nil sorts nnd sizes, all having their eyes fixed up on him, with an expression of revenge ful triumph, which froze the very mar row in his bones. Hut if he was terri fied by the siphts which met his gne, the sounds which fell upon his astounded ears weie ill-calcubited tn rc-nssure him. 'Who's that Cutty's Inking down,' said a voice on his left. 'Oh,' replied another, 'its only old Jones j we've been watching for him a 1 ng time, and now we've got him. "We'll cure him of his fondness for fish.' 'Yes,' said another, 'I guess the next fish he catches will do him good.' 'Ah, I declare, there's Jones,' scream ed another ; iU only a week since he caught sixteen of my young ones for bait, now I'll pay him for that,' and ....1.! i.: ..... i . - 1 .. i.:..i. .us.iiutii 111111, i.iu 111-11. sjiut.i.ui, 1,1111.1. ,vi.s iiuO.M:i .0 fiou jii,im iiii-n- ho now perceived was a large perch, 1 ed gruvcly to the indictment, the Judge seized him hy the noe and begun lugging a.-ked Jones what Iip had lo say to it at it with n vehemence vv hioli threatened 'Guilty, or not guilty '!'
