"Not by ad-—1 sight, ole feller ye must pay this 'ere bill or go tor the tombs!"|. And tin* obdurate policeman laughed loud ly and defiantly. Tompkins was bewildered. At length he became highly indignant. Ho tore his hair and foamed at the inouth. He then, with a terrible jerk, tore oft' both of his eoat tails, and danced with rage, like a Tu.scarora savage. Rushing to the Count, he yelled— "Viper, and this from you Dod—pol troon—puppy—ain't ye ashamed of ver Self With a cry of despair, Snry now rush ed forward. Raising herself up to her full height, she said "Policeman how much is this bill "Two dollars and twenty-seven cents, if ye please, mum." Then, there—there is the sum—take it and away—away And 8ary threw the money at the policeman's feet, and fell in to a swoon. She was pulled out by three servants in livery aud the police man. Tompkins was an attentive spectator to this hear-rending spectacle. Tompkins had a heart. Thirty years intimate as sociation with lobsters, had not entirely crushed the tiner feelings in his bosom. Tompkins was affected. He wept. Sud denly starting up, he bounded, like a ga zelle. towards Count Alfred de Flunkey. Come to my arms, my noble feller," cri«d Tompkins, and the Count was lock ed in iiis (Tompkins') arms. It was a w to I lie su^ar were.

A little more than three years ago came, for the first time, into this part of the Territory. A few dim, irregular wag on-trails, and now and then a stake with some one's name written upon it, were the only indications of white men we met.— The prairies at that time were clothed in their richest verdure the groves, in their heaviest foliage. There was a harmony and sweetness in the gentle undulations of surface and in the sweep of the water courses, to us, entirely new. A chaste and quiet grandeur seemed to r^st upon everything, possessing, to our mind, the very witchery of beauty.

We 'lieve that the first furrow was turned in this county, in the spring of '54 the first enclosure anyways claiming the dignified title of a field, was not made unfil the next season. The first grain grown here was in 1855, unless there may have been a few patches of sod-corn plant ed the previous year.
