Faying for Luxuries. TUB WRONG MAN TIED TO TUB WHIPPING POST. T Some years ago, one Ike Jewel, a na tive of Vermont, picked up his traps, started off ou u peddling tramp, and final ly brought up iu Helena, State of Arkan sas. Now it happened that on the very day Mr. Jewel arrived in town, a fellow had been arrested for negro stealing and plac ed in the old log jail, preparatory to re ceiving tbs penalty of fifty lashes for the «ffence. Tue juil beiug insecure there was a patrol a la Horse Guards to protest it, aud the prisoner, haring a tings of Jack Shepherd's blood in hia veins, man aged to escape, slid of course flew by night, after the manner of the witches iu Machcth. when the Sheriff went next morning, in all the dignity of oificial pride, to admin ieler the punishment, he was both prised and indignaut to find his man tun est imentus. "Ah, this-won't do." said the dignitary biting his lip, aud looking poniards at the ander-aheritf, a carroty-headed deputy, with a pumpkin-headed beard of a week'« growth. " We must set spies about for hint, aud have him re-apprehended at once." Thu consequence was that sur Give Seouls were immediately dispatched alt sides, all of whom had seen the man ou trial, aud knew his face, and as the sheriff's ebenerer was hugely "riz," their orders wore uncompromisingly stringent. Now it happened, from some strange and unfortunate cause, that the newly rived peddler was the very image—the regular "Corsican Brother"— tira Siamese trill of tho fugitive culprit, and, as he was buttering a pancake at breakfast next morning a large, strong man, with an of fici I grin, tapped him geDtly on tho ■heulder. "Well," said the Yankee, "what's the row neuw—eht" ••I want you, Mist6r," the »an briefly replied. "Ye-es—due you want me? I a'pose you have hcaro' of my having cum tue Iswu with my everlastin' aud all sortin' inventions. You're wide awake I see for coming afore anyone else." ' Curse your inventions," said the of ficial. The sheriff wants you immediate ly. You thought to escape us did you ? "Sheriff—escape! Luke a-here, crit tur, what on earth do you mean ?" "Mean for you to come along with mo without another word." And so saying, he dragged tho peddler out of the room. On the way he learned tho circumstances of his arrest, and al though he protested and sworo he was not the man, the likeness was too strong fur belief. Tho sheriff advised him for the good of his country and the lienor of bis friends, if he had any, not to tell such "dredful lies," but quietly submit to the punish ment. The consequence was he was tied to the whipping-pnst, and the sheriff pre pared to render iu the dreariest manner the infliction. "Now, before I begin, old fellow," said the sheriff, "whut have yeu got to say for yourself?" "Oh, nothin' in particular," said the peddler, laughing with a meaning curve of the lip, "only if you can afford te pay for luxuries, mister, go ahead." The sheriff did not comprehend tho drift of this business-like assertion, ap plied the scourge, aud with every cut the Yankee laughed with immoderate glee. Lash succeeded lash, and still he laughed, and still tho wonder grew, fiftieth lash had been well laid on parting salute, the sheriff, in a flood of wondermeut, threw down his whip and asked him the reason of his merriment. "I'm regular dutnfounded" said lie, "what in the world makes you laugh ■o ?" "Laugh! Why, who could help it?" fairly roared the Yaukee. "I'm laughin' tue think how you're been sucked in this operation—I ain't the mil at all !" He said this so meaningly that the sheriff began to think there must be a mistake somewhere. The Yankee con tinued : "It strikes me that business in my line is goin' to be raytber dull in this teown, sud ef there's any law tue be had I'll speckaluto on this licking, and ste ef I can't turn it to some account, ways open for trade, miater, ef you want to compromise — for remember, you've licked the wrong man !" And dearly did the sheriff pay for it. on ar V JO i When the ns a I'm al Moaaa's Wife —A clerical gentlcmaD from whom the Drawer ia always pleased to hear sends the following : As I was paying pastoral vistits some years ago, iu the State of Tennessee, a lady said te me, "I'm very glad you've come. I was reading in the Bible the otbor day about Moses marrying a nigger, and 1 wish you would explain the matter." "It don't read that way in my bible," I replied ; no Ethiopian woman." "Well, dosn't that mean a nigger?" "I will tell you hew it was," I answer ed. "There was a terrible war waged by the Ethiopians against the Egyptians, and two great armies sent from "—* against them had beeD destroyed. Ethiopians were governed by a magnifi cent queen, something like Semiramia, who led ont her own armies, and knew how to gain a victory. But when Moses was sent with a third Eyptian army a gaiost her, he asked help of God, and managed re wisely that the queen agreed to surrender all her foroes to him, end become tributary to Egypt, provided he would marry her." "Well," said ths old lady, "I too* $ure it aeunt any common nigger ."— Editor's Duwsi, in Harper'* Magazine for Au fid. "it reads that Moses married l'he "Bet pnrdon, air." mid a colored wait er to • stranger at Lake Geneva hotel the other dty, "but Mr. Chittendoo am nn toiably obtained wid a transum guest de exception room."
