The conjurer turned tup the cnffs; of his coat, took off his neck-hailkerchief, unbuttoned his shirt collar, and stated tha.t ie would tow eat the three piecs of bread and af erwnrds bring them -all under one lint. The conjtrer commenced eating the aread and cheese.- and after caing two pieces, deaclared ke cotld not proceed wi.th the third and Snish the trick, unless he had sonethin, to drink. The worthy landlord, desirin tit the wonderful trick shaoald he proceedelein, for the nnausenent of his ctsiomerginmediately gave the conjurrnr a quart oiale; and the third piece of hread and chees soon followed the first two pie ces. Noithe grand trick wnas to be per. formed, a the landlord and his compa. antios anxusly awaited it. The conjiarer said "Now putlemten, which lant shall I put the hirearl ind cheese tnder'!" The Inmilord pointed oit his otvi lant. .vishing hi hat to inke pnrt itt the trielt as w6l as hiread anl cheese. It bein so arranged, te conjurer said "Gentimtena, I haave eatn te bread atnd ch~eesearnel tnows I w'il bring it ast tler the lanidlor's hat,"' and immtedliately plar: ed the hat potn his he~adI andl said-*-Nmv von percete it is undaer a le liat wit hott miy udece'pon." amuid~tt shouts of laughter from tall th company except the landlord, who was tnus three pieces air bireaid atnd cheese whht h% did tnot seemn to reli-b.

The Balmore Sun reads a certain class a lesson, iebc we shouald imnagine thcy would not seedily forget. MatrimI Pirates.-Society is cursed with a clavof' individtaals wvhose worth. lessness is eeal led onlhy by a heir atssuantce. Conscious c their waent of moral power, they have t htope of elevation to wealth or respectality, except itt the formtation of a matritnnial Allianace that shall oapen the collers asome rich present or prospec tive heiress. These, an eloquaent lecturer, a few eveniks sinace, distinguished by the emphatic tia of "pirates;" and warned such as, by 'eir peetnhiar position in socie ty, wete esmedl to their itasidious adv'an ces, to lip a their gntard against thetm. Thec situatir of an heiress is usually con sidered an a' inble otne lay most 'youang women.-. has not only the power with. in her hanaf indalcitig i'n every virtuous desire, hbut 'th dozens of admnirers at her feet, the ihty of choosing from a large circle. Btuere is no one so mutch itn danger of nking a shipwreck of happi ness as shte.Caressed on every side, she soona loses a power ofjtudging correctly. andi it too iguetlay happens that some heartless fome hunter, more subtle than all the rest, ns her guileless beart. Mod est merit raiy enters the list in the con tentiotn for heiress, and therefore her circle of chie is limited, except in rare :pa...c,n te selfish, the intrest.ed, and the worthless. In glancing around through society, how melancholy is the picture that is presented of the fate of heiresses. A father la.vishes upon his child all the ac complishments that wealth can procure she is the idol of his heart. Suddenly he discovers, that among the crowd of admir ers who have flocked around her, she has suffered her affections to go towards one who has neither correct principles nor ha bits of industry-a mere butterfly of fash ion-a grub with glittering wings and shin ing body. In vain, does he oppose her choice. In an evil hour, if he will not con seut to the marriage, she runs away. Ini a few years. we find her the forscken, heart-broken wife; all her fond hopes wrecked-hiding away, with her children itn her fathbr's house, shunning the eyes of the world, and brooding in melancholy gloom, over hir itbappy fate. This re stilt is an evil that, it seems to us, society should have corrected long ago. The cre dentinis upon which a man enters the cir cle of wealth and fashion in this country, are scanned too superficially, and are, be sides, not founded on the true basis of in dividual worth. if a young man's family connexions are what are called respecta ble, it is of but little consequence what lie may he-he belongs to the "certain circle," and comes in aid goes out at pleasure. and ntil some poor. simple hearted girl falls a victim, he is not stspected of being a dan gerolus person.-Does it not seem strange, that filiebrs and tmotliers, who really love their inexperienced children, should so wantonly expose them to the thousand dnngers that beset the pollh that winds through the mnizes of fashionable society ? A party is given by otie of the elite. and Mr. A's. daughter is invited. She must go of course.-The father and mother never dream f enquiringjnto the character of those fisually invited to Mrs. B's. parties, and it may be. while they are doting in their own parlors, -ote shrewd, but heart less matrimonial pirate, may be runuing down a prize, and that prize their own lovely and innocesut child.-Thev wonder at their misfortunie, when they find their (laughter's aflections all given away, and her resolution to marry a man who they know will bretik her heart, unslinken. Bult what more coid tiey have expected, while sufferina their child to run the aiddy roundl of fashionable dissipation with soci e 'y!otgttjizel under.ijs.pre tit false prin prey of fort ntne-un-re rs-an fam1T Iipes and family happitness continue to be cast to the winds. Rrvolutionary Anecdoe.-A story is told of n Sergeant who travelled through the woods of New Uampshire. ott his way to the Amerienti Army, which will show the chnrneter Of the Indians. lie had twelve me with him. Their route w;is far' fromi ;ny settlement; atnd they were obliged every night to ramp it the woods. Tne Sergeant had seen a good deal of the Inudianis. atnd11 nerslood thitem well. Early in the afternoon, one lay.,as they were mtairchintg on. over bogs, swanips, and brooks, under the great maiplo trees, n hody of Indians, more than their own nun hers, rushed otit upont a hill 'i front of them. They nppeared to be pleased at meet in2 with thte sergeant and his men. They considtered them their best frieids. For themstelvee. they had tinken up the hatch et for the Aiierients, and wonld selp ,td strip tlse ratc:lly English fAr then like so mniiy wil cats. - IlIw do you do. pro?' (tmieniig brother,) said otte, and * How !o you do ?' continuled anotheer; anm so they wetit aboutt shaing hanitds witi the ser geant ande his twelve mteni.

Yot1 are amazed; but depeti upon mei, these lindiants have tried to put out suspicion. Yatn will see moure by and by. They concluded finally to adopt the fol loinig scheme fordefenice. Tlhey enscarp ed for the iiht near a stream of water, wvhich protected them front behinid. A large isnk wvas felled and a brilliant fire kindled. Each maan cut a log of wood a bout the size of his heody, rolled it up ntice ly it) a blanket ansi pit his hat on the etmi ofit, and laid it before the fire, that the en emy might take it for a man. Thirteen logs w~ere fitted out itn this man nor representing the sergeanit & his twelve men. They then placed themselves,.with the londedi guns, behind the falleni tree. By this time it was dark. but the fire was kept burning util .midniighit. The Sergeant knew if they ever would come, they would come now. A tall indiatn was seen through the glimi ering of the fire, which was gettinig low. He moved towards them skulking as an Indian always dones. He seetmed at first itat a gtuardl might he watcing, but seeiing nione, lie came forward more holdly, rest ed on his toes, and was seen to move his lingers as he counted the thirteen ment, sleeping as lie supposed by the fire. He counitedl them again and retired. A nther came up anid did the same. Then the wshole sixteen in number, came up and glared siletntly at the logs, till they seemed satisfied that they were aisleep. Presenttly they took aim, fired the wvhole numtber. of gutns upon the logs, yelled the war hoop, andt ruished .forward to murdler and scalp their stupposedl victims. They were fired upon by the sergeant and his party and no.t. on ofth Ini... .... lef. to ..nl .t.. story that ight. The sergeu *ad hi party reached the army n safety. A writer in one of the Foreign Encyclo pedir.s calculates that if the natural resour ces of the American Continent were fully developed, it would afford-sustenance to 3600 millions.of inhabitants a numberfivi times as great as the entire population of the globe. The writer, after advancing this position, goes otn as follows: "And what is more surprising, there is every probability that this prodigious popu lation will he in existence within three or four centuries. The imagination is lost in contemplating a state of things which will make so great and rapid a change In the condition *of the world. We almost fancy it is a dream, and yet the result is basedon principles quite ascertain as those whieh govern the conduct of met] in their ordinary pursuits. Neerly all social im provements spring from the reciprocal in fluence of condensed numbers and diffi sed inteligence. What then will be the state ofsociety in America two centuriek hence, when a tlotisand or two thousand millions of civilized men are crowded into a space comparitively so narrow, and spen king only two 1i'nguages, as will doubt less be the case? distorv shows that wealth, power. science, litetature, all- fol low in the train of numbers, general intel igence and freedom. The same causes which trantsferred sceptre ofcivilization and the wei-ht of influence front the banks of the Euphrates and theNile toAWestern Eu rope. Mltst, in the course of no long peri od. carry them from the latter to the plains ofthe MNississippi, and the Amazon. Smoking a hror.-We have heard of smoking hams, and we have often heard fllks execrate a smokey chimney, but un til the present moment, we did not imag .me it possible the pyrolignous process could be practically made use of. to alter the - opinion of a juror. It seems that when the jury in-a late important casr tried in the Coart of General Sessions, retired they stood 11 to 1 for his acquittal. ThiTbne stood "solitary atid alone" in his opinion, a refractory and crooked disciple. His - companions vexed at what. they deemed his obstinacy sought out some means of attnoving !im, and finally discove.red that lie al'ominated a cigar.
