For proof of our charity. Two or three months ago the good people of this vicinity got up a Donation Supper for tbe benefit of Rev.

Our next ctiarlty meeting waa gotten up by a young man Ironi the country in honor of the anniversary of the wedding of Copt. Handy and lady, a very Cue old couple re siding in Ibe suburbs of the city. The country gent is very refined, a very good sinner, and plays on tbe organ, but do not bint it to him as it might make him con ceiled, as he Is one of tbe most basbful young gents alive, especially so in.tbe com pany .ol ladies. This party was a very pleasant one and epjjyed by all. But the last and grttetesl act of charily came off a week ago Friday night, at an abandoned boarding bouse on Kane Run, for the benefit nf some of our engineers, who have been on small pay for some time back. Although tbey got ibe party up themselves It was managed very shrewdly and tbe would be elite and fashion responded liber ally with pork, beatts, coke and other deli oacles. But alas, when the gong rang (or utipp er but very few of tbe delicacies were in elhl und large qunnlities of pork end beans. Now who would hive thought that such a well ored and well (e l class of com munity would condui-cend lo d evmir eucb ptovender as pork and beans, and ye strange In say they went at it witb a wl'l. and the provisions stiff red a m ost fettrful depletion, , "Anon the Inn grew fnM aid furious," and your readrs would bave split tbemsellvet with laughter at the sight or tbe nicest of men going throned "n prom enade" with -l8l full ol beans and prk in one band and a lady hanging to the other arm. And here Is tbe joke. A short time alter partaking of Ibis most hem ly ol sup pers, one of the chief managers passed tuund the hat at tbe sune lime demanding in stentorian tones the sum of (-one dolUr and fifty cents gentlemen, ladies excepted '' With aiirprhn pictured on Ibeir rce. Ihey came down with the money no il the con tribution box arrived.'at tbe plact where an old gent waa sitting who happened lo have hut one dollar He paid that oi t and agreed to settle the btlance when cil came up to $5.00 per barrel. The ladies In many cases, appeared lo be more flush'' than tbe gentlemen, io facl oue ol them bad a pocket full of money, and rematked t an other lady tbst she was afraid she would loss It as ber husband bad given it lo ler for safe keeping. Not many buidiaode would trust their wives lo that amount. On the wbole the benefit wis probnbly o good ming lor ibe engineers tbe poor en gineers.
