EFFECTS OF PUNCH DRINKING.
One dark, drizzly, damp, dull and disagreea
' ble day, in tne latter part of November, A. U,
a ial gaunt, queer looking customer, dressed in
a blue coat with metal buttons, ar brimstone-colored
vest, and plaid pantaloons, with calfskin term
inations, sat solemnly nnd alone in a little room,
situated in a certain little tavern in street, city
of Philadelphia. Before him was a little round
table, on whose top was set a litlle pitcher of
smoking punch " screeching hot," and wine glass.
. The solitary individual was "York," nothing
else, dear child, and that was his second pitcher
full nigh second pitcher empty. One minute
aftr, and you couldn't squeeze a drop out of either
pitcher or glass by a forty-two pound hydraulic
press. . ....
York rang the bell. The waiter poked his
head in at the door.
Ring.sa?
" Of course 1 did. Is it clearing off?"
" No. sa damn, sa fotf so thick, sa. you could
ladle it up with a spoon, sa.- Have you anything
sa ?"
" More punch, and strong !"
" Yes sa immediately, sal"
The waiter withdrew, and in a few minutes the
third pitcher stood before our hero, who attacked
it zealously. York had just drained the last
glass from the pitcher, and was beginning to feel
glorious, when on raising his eyes, he saw his
own figure in a large pier glass directly opposite,
he rubbod his eyes winked, started, coughed,
and rubbed his eyes again.
" By Jove," said he, "there is some .fellow sit
ting right brfore me. This is a private room sir,
for my sole accommodation." He waited a mo
ment expecting an answer, but the reflection only
stared at him and held its peace. " I was saying
sir, that this is my private room mine, sir,"
cried " Fork," fetching his voice an octave high
er than before. No answer made he rang the
the bell furiously. The waiter-made his nppear
ance. A
"Ring, sa?
" Yes.. I did ring. Didn't I ask for a private
room ?"
" Yes, sa, this is a private room." .
"It is! why there's a fellow sitting right be
sore me now, on the other side of the table rot
his impudence."
" Table. a fellow, sa?"
"Yes, there is well never mind. Bring
me some more punch and two glasses.
"Ycs,sa immediately, sa."-
In a very short time the fourth pitcher, with
the two glasses, made its appearance.
York filled one of the glasses and shoved it over
the table.
" Will you drink,' sir?" said he, addressing the
figure in the glass. "Oh you won't drink, old
fellow," continued he. " Your liquor is getting
cold, and you look as if you were fond of the
thing. No answer being returned. York fin
ished the pitcher and rang the bell again. In
popped the waiter.
" Ring, sa?"
" To be sure 1 did. Didn'j you bear the bell?"
" I did."
" Didn't! order ap-p-private room, eh ?"
" Yessa -this is a private room, sa."
"A pretty private room this is, with a f-f-fel-low
sitting opposite there, won't take a drink of
punch when it is offered him and a red nose at
that! Oh," never mind Til try him again."
Presently (pitcher No. V.. with tumblers to
match, was borne in with due stale.
" B-b-better try some, old chap, said York,
coaxingly, to his double. The reflex merely
looked good natured, hut said nothing. 'Well,'
continued York, if that ain't the the m-most in
famous well, never mind, I'll drink 'the punch,'
and so he did every drop of it. About five min
utes sufficed to end the pitcher. The waiter came.
Ring, saT
" Why, cettain ! why shouldn't I ? Where's
the m-m-man who k-k-keeps this house?" ' ' '
" Boss, sa I'll send im in."
Shortly after mine host, a quiet looking little
man, with a mottled caiicp-paKernea face-, a sbio
inir bald head, made his appearance.
W-w-whai't to pay?" demanded York, rising
and assuming an air ot dignity.
" Five nunches five levies, sir."
u There's the money, sir." said York, forking
over tha coin. . And now 1 vrant to know why,
when I call for p-p-prirate room, you should put
me here .wit a somebody else. ;., . ; , . ..
" There's nobody here but you and L".
a Nobody I do you suppose I can't see J Do
you ih-th think I'm drunk 1 Therc look, there,
two of them, by jingo !' r . ''
.' Well, sir, I must confess I don't see any but
two." : -' " '' '
w You can't, eh ?' anl York dragged the land
lord to the table. ''Look . there," continued he,
pointing to the glass. Tb-tb-there's the rascals
now. One of them's enough like you. to be
your brother, and the Qtber' the d dest,
Lord-forsaken, meanest looking while man I ev?

What a Boy may do. Judge Martin who
recently died at New, Orleans, at the age of 84,
left hjs father's house at Marseilles, while n ' lad.
with four francs money ; about eighty dollars, as
his sole patrimony. To avoid starvation, after he
had rambled about the West Indies, he got a place
as an apprentice to a-printer in North Carolina.
After -three years service he was received as a
journeyman. In three years he laid up money
enough to Duy out his employer. Aitcrwaras be
came to Louisiana. Here, while Judge of th
Supreme Court, bes was also partner in a brick
yard. After seven years his partner died. In
settling their accounts, it was found that every
item of theirjoint house-hold expenses was mark
ed down from day to day, and that for the whole
seven years they hud shared the same table togeth
er, they had each expended, on an average, only
25 cents per day, including food and clothing for
their servants, and all the other expenses of house
keeping. During all this time the Judge was re
ceiving a salary of $5000 per year, besides large
profits from the hrick yard, and from his reata,
and money placed at interest, his four hundred
francs have since been increased to 9500,000, and
upwards. During the third of a century he held
office, he had to decide immense interests submitt
ed to the Court and no one ever supposed that for
millions of money his opinion could be made to
swerve a hairs breadth, riis integrity was above
the slightest suspicion from any quarter. Judge
Martin s will takes only five lines of writing,, and
bequeaths his whole estate, valued at 8500,000, to
his brother, who being only 65, he w.is wont to
call "the boy." . It is, therefore, worth just $100.
000 a line.
Vegetable Instinct. If a pnn of water be
placed within six inches on either side of the stem
of a young pumpkin or vegetable marrow, it will
in the course ol the night approach it, and will be
found in the morning with one of its loaves float
ing on the water. This experiment may be con
tinued nightly until the plant begins to fruit. If
a prop be placed within six inchrs of a young con
volvulus or scarlet runner, it will find it, although
the prop be shifted daily. If, after it had twined
some distance up the prop, it be unwound and
twined in the opposite direction, it will ieturn to
its original position, or die in the attempt ; yt not
withstanding, if two of these plants grow near each
other, and have no stake around which they can
entwine, one of them will alter the direction of its
spiral, and they will twine around each other.
Duhamal placed some kidney beans in a cylinder
of moist earth; after a short time they began to
germanite, of course sending the plume upwards
to the light, and the root down into the soil. Af
ter a few days the cylinder was turned one-fourth
round, and again and again this was repeated un
til an entire revolution of the cylinder had been
completed. The beans wepe th'n taken out of the
earth, and it was found that both the plume and
radicle had bent to accommodate themselves to
every revolution, and the one in its effort to ascend
perpendicularly, and the other to descend, had
formed a perfect spiral. But although the natural
tendency of the roots is downwards, if tho soil
beneath be dry, and any damp substance be above,
the roots will ascend to reach it.
The purest of human being; must need live in
the world as it is ; and an education is dangerous
ly imperfect which does dot instruct purity ns to
what it must openly meet, what it may purely re
ceive, and what it should turn from and repel. If
opinion has cried your name up let modesty cry
your he.urt down, lest you deceive it, or it deceives
you. There is no less danger in a great name
than in a bad one ; and no less honor in deserving
praise, than enduring it.
Whatever may be the custo-ns and laws oi a
country, woman always gives the tne to moral
How absurd to be. afraid p! death, when we

There are no readers of a paper so h ard to
please as those who do not subscribe for it If
you hear a man finding fault with a paper, you
may not it down as a 'fixed fact' that he has
such a tender regard for the editor that he reads
his paper at another man s expense.
About Right. . Some forty years ago, when
a man s respectability oepepaea mucnon nu tak
ing a newspaper, a certain shrewd o)d fellow was
one morning enjoying the Jnxury of perusing hi
paper, (although he labored under the great dis
advantage of not knowing a single Utter of the
alphabet,) when a more knowing neighbor of his
happened in perhaps to borrow his paper ob
served to him that he had hfs piper -wrong end
uy. The old gentleman, drawing himstlfup in
all the pomposity of affronted dignity, exclaimed.
i. would have you to know, sir, that ii t tune a
paper and pay for it, I have a right to read it
which end up please,'
Milton. . When Milton was going to Si.
Paul's school, in London, at one of the public ex
aminations, the subject for poetical composition
happened to be on our Savuur s hrst miracle, tne
turning ofwater into, wine at the marriage. , Fo
lios were written and handed in on the subject.
When it came to Milton's turn to hand in his poem,
from whom not much was expected, he merely
wrote on a slate one line t '
" The conscious water knew its God, and blushed !"
. The judges looked at eaeh other in astonishment
the laconic beauty of the line,, and simple sub-;
limity 0f the idea were so striking. . After be
stowing encomiums on the more elaborate pro
ductions, according to their merits, they awarded
the prize to the future bard of Paradise Lost,"

A WORK will be published by the undersigned this
Spring, entitled as above, giving an accurate ac
count of each County in our State, in Alphabetical or
der, the derivation of its name, date of formation,- its
Colonial and Revolutionary History, a Biography of ita
distinguished citizens, an accurate list of it representation
in' each branch of the General Assembly, its Towns, Riv
ers, Population, Resources, Products, and Topography,
" The- undersigned has for many years been collecting
and condensing the material for this work. The archives
of our own State have been carefully examined, and co
pious extracts made from iu records: - He has procured
from the offices of the Board of Trade and Plantations
in London many valuable documents. Rare and valuable
works have ben purchased from abroad, touching the
early history of our State, and each County, which have
never seen the light. He has been kindly aided by gen
tlemen in different sections by copies of original docu
ments, end faithful traditional statements, 'highly impor
tant and interesting.
He does not aspire to the position of the Historian,
but hopes from records and statistical' facts to afford ma
terials, to other and abler hands, for this pleasing and less
laborious duty. ' This work, it is hoped, will be useful as
a book of reference to -the statesman- and scholar, and
man of business or leisure. Occasional extracts have
been published in tike Standard and other ftapent of this
State, over the signature of Tacitus. " .'
I he History of North Carolina is yet to be written
The remark which one of the ablest Historians of the
age, (Bancroft,-) has been compelled, to make, that "so
carelessly has. the History of North Carolina been writ
ten that the name, merits and end of the first Governor
is not known, ia a reflection upon us. An examina
tion of the early history of the Counties of North Caro
lina shows a record of the purest patriotism and indomit
able courage. This record is now covered by the dust
of age, and unknowu by neglect. It is a debt which the
present generation owes to the past as well as the future
to preserve these memorials; for it often occurs in the
history of our race, that facts known to one generation
are controverted bv the next, and at a succeeding period
are considered as -doubtful legends, unworthy of histori
cal faith. Our Mecklenburg Declaration of Indepen
dence, in May 1775, had almost been an illustration of
this truth. '
