THE ORIGIN OF YANKEE DOODLE. DY CEO. P M IRRIS, EQ Once on a time old Johnny Bull, Flew in a rasing fury, Anil swore that Jonathan should have No iriuls, sir, by Jury. That no election should be held, Across Iho briny waters : "Ami now," said he, 'Til lax the tea Of all his sous and d. lumbers." , Then down he sat in burly slate, And blustered like a gnindie, And in derision made a tune Called "Yankee doodle dandy. "Yankee doodle" these are fuels Yankee doodle dandy ; Mv sou of wax, your lea I'll lax Yankee doodle dandy." John sent the tea from o'er the sea Willi heavy duties rated ; But whether hyson or b;.hea, ' I never heard it slated. Then Jonathan to pout began Ho laid u stiong embargo "Ml drink no lea, by Jove ?" so ho Threw ovei board the cargo. Then Johnny sent a regiment, Pull words and look to bandy, Whose martial band, when near the land, Piny'd "Yankee doodle dandy." 'Yankee doodle keep it up ! Yankee doodle dandy, I'll poison with a lax your cr.p, l'ankee doodle dandy." A long war then they had, in which John was at last defeated--Ami "Yankee doodle" was the march To which his troops relrealed. Cine Jonathan, to see I hem lly, Could not rest rain his laughter : 'That Inne," said he, ''snils to a T, I'll fin:; it ever after." Old Johnny' face, lo his disgrace.

When mar the house, he heard the sound of weeping, and, turning; his lantern in the direction, saw a woman seated on the edge of the side-walk, with her led in the water, which was near filling the watercourses. He assisted her into the house, that her clothes might he dried before she went home. But Mary had no home.

Loul Byron, the great poet, gifted beyond measure in genius, dcstiliute more than many of grace, wroto his experience in his own beautiful but unhappy strains, when he said, upon ihe verge uf l lie tomb : "Though gay companions o'er the bowl Dispel awhile the sense of ill, Though pleasure fill Ihe maddening soul, The heart the heart is lonely still.

"Nay, for myself, so dark my fate Tiiiouuh every turn of life hath been, Man and the world so much I hate, 1 caio not when I quit the scene." The bitter sarcasm of the poet contrasts, indeed, with the glorious paean of ihe Apos tle, '! have fought a good fight, I am ready to be cITered up. There is reserved for me a ciown of righteousness." Voltaire, the French atheist, pronounced the world to be full of wretches, and himself the most wretched of them all, Mirabeau, one of the same school, died calling, in his last mo ments, for opium to deaden the terrible fore bodings of corning wo.

A riUIITIINO CANDIDATE. Mr. Wise, in a spepch in the late Demo craiio Convention in Virgin! i, made the fol lowing reference to one of their Presiden tial candidates. The Commodore is coming up in the w ind. A few such anecdotes will make him the successful candidate. "There was a man in the navy, a pet of Decatur's the most gallant snnl that ever lived who actually stormed Gibrallar. A voice 'ihe Gibrallar of Wbiggery !' No the Gibraltar at the mouth of lha Medilet ranean. The young man referred to, a mid shipman in the navy, went ashore at Gibral tar one day. It was at a time when British officers were in the habit of insulting Amer icans wherever they could be found. While this young man was at Gibraltar, two British officers commenced traducing the American character, and he immediately laid down the gauntlet, with iho understanding that the laws of (he garrison wero not to be enforced. They met upon the out-works of the fort, and the young man 'plugged' his antagonist. The companion of the British officer imme diately advanced to arrest tho midshipman as a prisoner. Incensed nt the violation of iho promise solemnly made, be caught the officer in his arms, and giving him a close hug, threw himself over the parapet, and thus locked, they rolled over nnd over to iho bottom, in which efTort ho broke his leg. A sergeant attached lo the fort pursued the midshipman on horseback, but on coining up to him, the midshipman threw him oil, and taking possession of his horse, made his escape to the boat. Afterwards, he went on board the British flag-ship, and challenged the whole fleet. He met threo Britsh offi cers, one after another, and tho result was, if I have been correctly informed, a regula tion was made, that if any British officer hould thereafter fight a duel, he would be cashiered the service. This young man was Robert F. Stockton. The promise of the boy has been redeemed in the man. You all know what he did in California, where he carried his sailors on shore and made them perloim military or.lv, although it was said in the Florida wnr that sailors could comprehend but one military command, and that was, "Fight Indians."

SOWIMG GRASS SEED. We find in the Albany Cultivator Ihe sub ji ined experiment made in sowing an abun dance of seed, with the result a result which, ... a . ... " we leei prelty certain, will attend every simi lar experiment, where the land is equally tortile. As the present is the season when farmers will be thinking about sowing grass seed, the article will not come amiss : Farmers, ns well as other people, like to make good bargains. Snrne nf tbn writ-ai irgains they make is wilh themselves. For example, to save five dollars of seed thev loso twenty dollars of hay or pasture. By way of experiment, nnd to exhibit the advan tages of a good supply of seed, the writer sowed in Ihe spring of 1850 a piece of ground io grass, at the rate of one bushel of seej per acre, or half a bushel of clover and the same quantity of timothy. Inlessthun Iwomonthsi Ihe field afforded A prodigious amount of pas turage full twice as much through ihe sea. snn by estimate of ordinary good pastures. The present year the grass was allowed to grow for hay, which has just been cut and drawn in, (7 mo 10. 1851., and the nrodne.t was found to be three and a half tons per acn. Where can we find a permanent pasture or meadow lhat will do this? The soil was of rdii'ary fertility only, or would not probably have yielded more lhan 50 bushels of corn er acre. The amount of paslurnge afforded by Ihe second groth of ihis grass field, fully warrenled the belief that a ton and a half per acre might have been cut, making Jive tons nf hay per acre in all, for one year. The hay produced where plenty of crass- seed is sown, is of much belter quality lhan where the stalks stand thin on :ho grouud. A good anecdote is related by Mr. Eaton in his Annals of Warren, of one Boggs, who introduced ihe first flock of sheep into lhat place. He brought them from remnquid by water, and while sitting on the windlass one day, got sleepy, and began to nod. The patriarch of the flock, laking it for a chal lenge, drew back and knocked him spraw ling upon the deck. Wherennon. Bops. more pugnacious than wise, seized the old fellow by the wool and chucked him over board. But he got more than he bargained for by this counter movement, for the whole flock, feeling bound in all cases to follow their leader, popped over after him ; and Boggs, being several miles from land, was obliged to heave to, and wilh much difficul ty recovered them again. He concluded that he had ihe worst of that battle, at both ends. Kennebec (M.) Journal.
