A Devil-Caught Parson. In one of the small interior towns of New England, where the superstitions of our aneestors still possess a hold on the people, the facts occurred, a few years since, of which the following is a true narration: An honest farmer and his family, pre paring to celebrate Thanksgiving at his father's, in an adjacent town, were hurried and confused extremely on the day pre ceding that festival, by the multiplicity of things which must be done before they could leave home with safety. The house was to be banked up," and the glean ings of the harvest—cabbage, turnips, and so forth—put into the cellar, that the ex ternal entrance thereto might be closed for the scasoa. Having carried in the veget ables, the boys were dispatched to the barn for straw to fill the passage with, while the good old man himself was busy on the opposite Hide AO., Public Square, McGregor, Iowa. of the house. An old ram, the horned patriarch of a large Hock of sheep kept on the farm, hav ing gut a taste of the scattered cabbage leaves, unobserved entered the cellar and continued his feast. The avenue through which he had entered was immediately closed up, and all the necessary work and arrangements being comuleted, the larger boys and girls set ofF on foot in high glee, the big dog running and barking before them. Soon after them, the parents and their little ones having put out the tire and fast ened the doors and windows to keep the thieves out, started for the same destina tion. On the afternoon of the day following the festival the family returned home, ac companied by some young cousins. Some of their youthful neighbors of both sexes were invited in, and quite a merry Thanks giving carousal was in full tide of success ful operation, when one of the boys, who hal been into the cellar with a little tow-wick candle, whiclt gave enough to make darkness visible, to draw cider, ran back into the room, with eyes glaring wildly, uttering the half suffocating excla mation,— The devil is in the cellar!M "Pooh!" said the father "yoolwre only been frightened by your own shadow. Just give me the light." Saying this he seized the candle—leav ing tiie candle-stick fast in the hand of the boy—and boldly rushed to the cellar stairs but before he had descended half the steps, the large saucer eyes and enor mous horns of the ram caused him to re treat. as much terrified as his son, ex claiming,— Sure enough the devil is in the cel lar The good man seized the great Bible and attempted to read, but the candle burnt blue and threw such a feeble light on the sacred pages, and the book trem bled so much in the hands of the reader, that he could not distinguish one word from another. The little children cried and clung to their mother the girls nes tled close to their favorite swains, and the whole house was shaken with the agita tion of its half demented inhabitants.— One bright thought, however, occurred— and a messenger was sent for the minister to come and lay the devil! The parson, more celebrated for good piety and credulity than for talent and he roism, slipped a small Bible into his pock et, put on his bands and surplice, that he might appear as formidable to bis foe and antagonist as possible, and hastened to the relief of his greatly distressed parish ioners. On coining to the house the reverend man was hailed as a deliverer, and im plored by at least a dozen voices at the same moment to drive the devil away.— But few moments were lost in asking questions which no one could answer, be fore the parson pushed forward as a lead er, with the same penurious light, into the cellar, the most courageous of the compa ny keeping close behind him. He reach ed the foot of the stairs. The eye8 of fire, the shadowy outline of the enormou* horns, magnified at least ten fold by the terror of those that beheld them, removed all doubt, if any existed in his mind, as to the infernal nature of the being with which he had to contend. The divine instantly fell upon his knees, and, with uplifted hands, began to pray in his most fervent manner. The ram, not understanding the pious man's mo tives, but supplying by the motion of his hands that he was during him to a butthig contest, made a pass with all his might at his supposed adversary, but, deceived by the swelling dimensions of his drapery, missed the slender body of the priest, and, TIMES. drawing hastily back to renew the assault, hooked one of his horns into the belt of the surplice, and pulled the priest back with hiin into the cellar. while thus in the power of his victorious foe, he lost hope as it regarded himself, and the natural ltcnevolence of his dispo sition burst forth in the exclamation— 44 Brethren, take care of yourselves, the Devil has got me I" This exhortation was better obeyed than any he had ever delivered from the pulpit —his friends all fled and left him to his fate. Among the company was a shrewd far mer, who had from the first supposed the fiend to b« some domestic animal, but, be inga lover of fun and willing to see a comedy, kept his thoughts to himself, and pretended to sympathize with others in their fears. He thought it time to inter fere, and snatching a pitch knot from the fire, expressed his determination to rescue the preacher or perish in the attempt. 41 Don't! don't! shouted several of the company. 41 fake along the Bible, if JOO do £01" suggested another. *iWhat does the another. i devil care for fire," said But, unheeding the suggestions and the manifestations of concern for his safe ty^ he passed into the cellar, seized the animal by one of its horns, and dragging the struggling rani up stairs, calling to the astonished parson, 44 follow me! The horned devil was led in triumph, followed by the ecclesiastic, into the midst of the company. A momentary sighing and hanging of heads ensued, but the past sceno was too ludicrous to admit of sober reflection, and loud per.ls of laughter burst from every side, during which the ram was turned out, the parson absented himself without cere mony, and the sports of the evening were resumed with better spirits than before. Paris Exposition. The German restaurants and beer sa loons vie with the French in elegance and spaciousness, and are quite as "jolly" in tneir appearance. The groups of prosper ous looking, good natured, heavy Germans gathered about, often accompanied by tlieir dames, the huge pots of foaming beer find plates of salt-crusted pretzels, the long-necked pipes, .and tho various games going on at the tables, gives one a very good picture transplanted German restau rant life. Here you may have at your or der all the peculiar beverages and dishes in vogue with that hearty mation, from from lager beer and sour kroutto the brisk Munich beer and vegetable pudding. The Austrian restaurant is somewhat oriental in its style, and you recogize in its customers the more fiery and swarthy hue, which belongs to that swarthy and miscellaneous empire. Here the main at traction is that celebrated Vienna beer, which rivals that of Bavaria, and those other dishes for which the Austrian capi tal is noted. But to our eyes the more carious and in teresting restaurants arc those of the most distant countries. We have in America imitations, at least, of the French cafe and the German lager beer saloon, from which we may gather some idea of what they are in their own countries. But who knows anything about a Russian or Span ish restaurant, how few are familiar with the styles of an Italian, a Turkish, an Af rican, or a South American saloon? Yet here, one after another, you find all these, with the natives in their unique dresses, waiting on the guests, and the multitude of viands and potations, not nameable in English, which constitute tho every day living of these out-of-the way people. In the Spanish cafe you see gorgeously dressed waiting girls, all black ringlets and sparkling black eyes, swarthy of color, voluptous of form, dressed with that pic turesque ostentation and those romantic folds which we have been accustomed to look at delighted in the illustrations of Don Quixote and Gil Bias passionate looking lasses, who seem only fitted for some dark romance, but by some unac countable freak of fortune are reduced to the comiuou-place occupation of pouring out wines and courtesying in acknowledg ment of stray half-franc pieces. On the walls of this restaurant you are surround ed by frescoes representing the rank luxu riance of the Spanish valleys and fields, and the heavy gloom of her mountain gor ges which added to the liquid sentences which you hear all about you, carry your •uingination to tlje adopted land of Colum bus and all its sensual pleasures. Every thing in this restaurant partakes of that gaudy base which is so characteristic of the Spaniards as a race the chairs and ta bles, thcorm\meiits of the counters, the dresses of the attendants are showy and unsubstantial. AN ECCENTRIC MAN.—The Pafcame Times notices the death at that eity, May 15, of a strange eccentric, and somewhat famous old settler named Thomas Kelly, aged 58. He emigrated from Ireland forty years ago, came to Dubuque in 1832, and worked in the lead mines until he, with others, were ordered off by Lieut. Jeff. Davis. In 1834, however, he came back and struck a big lode which was named after him, and out of which he made a fortune. In 1S51, he started for New York with £20,0K) of drafts in his pocket, and at Albany his strange appearance— long hair, rough clothes, and singular de meanor—caused ill-bred hoys to follow and annoy him. The result was, that one day he fired a pistol at the vexing crowd, and mortally wounded a man. lie was tried, judged to be insane, and sent to the Utica Insane Asylum, the state authorities tak ing possession of his drafts, which they have retained ever since to the amount of $10,000. What became of the rest is not known. He remained at Utica three years, when he escaped, and made his way back to Dubuque. He then built a cabin on the south side of his bluff. It was composed of stones, was low, and almost covered with earth. It had no windows, and but one small door. In '62 or '63 the roof of this hut caved in, and he vacated it, after putting up a worse one west of it, in a more retired spot. He continued his pros pecting, and in '64 struck another lode, which added largely to his wealth. He always lived alone, in this beggarly way, but leaves two brothers, a sister, two nephews, and a niece to eqjoy a fine estate in civilized society. Railway House* A correspondent writes us from Prairie du Chien, and speaks as follows of the Railway House in that place: 44It is situated on the Railroad, a magnificent building of Milwaukee brick, elegantly furnished, and overlooking the Mississippi river, and is a spot where any weary trav eler may find such comforts as only are found iu few oountry towns. The gentle manly proprietors, Messrs. Williams Fox, leave nothing undone that will add to the comfort of the outer or inner man of any of their guests. I can safely say to any of our Milwaukee citizens that if they ever come this way, they will find ucn attention to all wants, and such viandsj| of the season before them, as will cause them to feel that thoy do not want to quit the Railway House.—Daily Wi's COHsit i.

RORV O'ROL Loose Dealing. A SAOACIOI'S come to be considered s firofitable, RKE. A gentleman, a Christian, and of coarse a friend, hands us the following clip from a religious paper suggesting the propriety of its re-publication: we agree with him and here is the article: Some people have a very easy way of getting along in the world. They seem to nave a slippery way of forgetting things. Oblivion seeins to be a pleasure to them.— We are sometimes alarmed about their con sciences Have at times thought them te be somewhat gum-elastic. We have rcf eference to Christians who make promises and never fill them, and who profess one thing and do another, or rather don't do it at all. 1'bere is a certain kind of Chris tians who promise to pay, give a promis sory note, and put their names on sub scription papers, (especially on Church subscriptions) and who pay no further at tention to them until they are reminded of the fact, and then dogged about awhile.— This is bad Christian morality. Such persons take a hint with great difficulty.— They have a very thick epidermis. YVhen you talk about paying up arrearages they immediately go into a state of sweet ab straction. They hear at a great distance. Like lazy camp-followers they are always lagging behind, and then you always find them behind. There is a great want of promptness among this class of people, and we here wish to assure them tnat their persistent indifference in regard to paying store bills, and paying up on sub scription papers, and fulfilling their words of promise, is not only very annoying and aggravating, but it is a positive sin in the sight of God. We know of a brother who remained out of the Church many years, because of the loose dealing of 6ucn per sons, who bought at his store what they wanted and paid when they pleased, and who always made promises to pay, but never paid till dogged about awhile. We know of men who never pay their church subscriptions till the last day of the year, and then they must be cornered before you can get it out of them. It is so with their store bills, and their bills with mechanics, and with everybody in general. Prompt ness is a Christain virtue, and an index to Christain character. We injure the cause and our Christian profession by not being prompt. Jog stories have tale, flat and un- but an instance of the wonder- ul sagacity of one of these animals, which came under our notice yesterday, is worthy of mention. A large and noble looking Newfoundland dog, while crossing Spring street bridge, dropped his muzzle, but not seeming to wish to part with such a firm friend, ne picked it up in his teeth. Com ing to the corner of Wisconsin and East Water streets, he laid his muzzle down be fore a number of gentlemen standing there, and as plainly as actions could speak be sought them to replaee it over his nose.— He placed his proboscis in its proper place and with a whine and a pleading look sought to attract the attention of some friend who coHid aid him to re-muzzle him self. Observing a couple of policemen coming along the street, he seized his muz zle and in an affrighted manner ran across the street, where he renewed his importu nities to passers-by, keeping, meanwhile, a jealous eye upon the 44stars" who were loitering near. The police once more eame near him, which caused him, with a growl, to run to another corner out of their reach. About this time an old friend of the dog's —probably his master—came along. To him the dog addressed himself as Before, pleading to have the muzzle replaced,— The gentleman at first paid no attention to him, aud was just crossing the bridge when the sagacious animal placed himself direct ly across the pathway and refused to let him pass, at tne same time showing, by unmistakable signs, what ho wished. The gentleman, rightly divining what was wan ted, replaced the muzzle on tho dog's head and passed on. The joy of the poor anni mal knew no bounds at this happy result, and ho leaped and frisked about in the most frantic manner, 'l^ie stars had no longer any terror for him, and he passed them by with a defiant growl, evidontly well kuowing that they were the enemies of his race, but that he, for one, was safe from their destroying power.—Mil. Senti nel. A little five-year-old, referring to his sis ter's perfumery, said "Thore ain't no penny in that, is there "No, my dear." "Then what makes you call it a s(cent) bag?" taylag sip Capital. The following timely and excellent arti cle is copied from the Cincinnati Times "A Philadelphia paper has caught Franklin fever as to the importance of lay ing up something for a wet day. That is praiseworthy. As long as a man has nothing he is in bondage to two masters— to one for the roof that shelters the heads of his family, and to another for the labor that brings them bread and paj" rent Economy is the only way out or this boB dage. That economy must begin with the first entrance upon active life, and with most people the start" must be accrued before the expense of a family is incurred. It is accurately cyphered out that $500 saved each year and placed securely at legal compound interest, will vieM$18 ,000 in twenty years. It is also found that $1 deposited each week in a savings bank pay ing five per cent., the interest calculated weekly, will yield $2 553.53 in twenty-five years: and $10 a week, saved in this wuy, will yield $25,436.20. Ten dollars a week would yield in 5 years, $2,944.'JO in 10 years, $5,703.40 in 15 years. $11,500,301 in 20 years, $17,622.50. Chances frequently occur for purchd§»* ing real estate to such advantage as lb double the cost in a very few years when one has some money in bank thus saved he can profit by such operations. But without a dollar he must delve away at such wages as he can get and when sick —what then—and when he prematurely dies, leaving wife and orphans, what for them? The way out of servitude is to I? ursue a systematic course of economy. the working classes would thus sate capital, there would be so much less for the enrichment of the few, and our heavy men would be less powerful. Thirty men rise upon the unthrift of the masses.'' WHAT IS YOCNG ?ou DAUGHTER THINKINQ ABOUT?—You are very careful of her dress attend personly to its purchase and fit. ou go with her to see that her foot is nicely gaitered, and you give your milliner special instructions as to tho make and be* comingness of her hat, but do you ever ask yourself what Bhe is thinking about? In other words, do you know anything at all of her inner life? Many who are esteemed most excellent mothers are as ignorant all this all important point as if they had nev er looked upon their daughter's face. They expect respectful obedience, and if the young creature yields it, and has no need of a physician's immediate service, th^ consider their duty done. Alas, what a fatal mistake! There alt mothers who, never having invited the confidence of these young hearts, live to see it bestowed anywhere and everywhere but in accordance with their wishes. Ie it, can it be enough to a mother worthy of tho name, to be satisfied that her daugh ter's physical wants are cared for? What of that yearning, hungry soul that is cas ting about here and there for something to satisfy its questionings? Oh! give a thought sometimes to this. When she sits there by the fire or by the window, musing, sit down by her, and love her thoughts out of her. Cast that fatal "dig* nity" to the winds which has come be tween so many young creatures and the heart which they should lio nearest to in these important, forming years. "Respect is good in its place, but when it freezes up your daughter's soul utterance—when sends her for sympathy and companionship to chance guides, what then? A word, ft loving, kind word, at tho right moment-— no mind can over estimate its importance. Remember this when you see the sa4 wrecks of womanhood about you, and amid the sweeping waves of life's cares and pleasures, whatsoever else you neglect, do not fail to know what that young daughter of yours is thinking about.'' 0. K.—We find in the Daily Wisconsin. If an indorser is wanted we humbly vol unteer for the position, with the privilege of referring to Mr. POWBLL as the modll clerk and 8drg*ant-at-aruia of Northwefljl Hotel Business: "A correspondent writes us from PriK» rie du ChieD, and speaks as follows of the Railway House, in that place: 4 It is sit uated on the Railroad, a magnificent buiU^ ing of Milwaukee brick, elegantly furnish ed, and overlooking the Mississippi rivor, and is a spot where any weary traveler nothing undone that will add to the com fort of the outer or inner man of any of their guests.

GOVERNOR.—The Muscatine Journati perhaps the best informed as it is one if the ablest radical newspapers in the state, has a double-leaded editorial article in it issue of the 11th inst., on the subject off Gen. Baker's withdrawal from the gube» natorial contest. The Journal takes sub stantially the same view of the situation as that indicated by us on Tuesday moria» ing, and evidently believes Baker's witlfc drawal a sale to the Des Moines clique the interest of Williamson. The Journai says that "Des Moines 'business arrange# ments' carry with them a sort of convijb tion of political thimble rigging with maw honest persons." Of the chances for Williamson the Jour» nal says: 44We now consider that Williamson is e very strong candidate. If he and General Baker have had a good understanding wit& each other, the opinion that Williamson Is the strongest candidate now in the field may be laughed at by some, but they will not laugh at it when the convention shall meet." The friends of Merrill affect great ooip fidence in the easy triumph of their caifa didate, but it ie what they hope inuc|| more than what they believe. Baker, u doubtedly, could nave' controlled muc more strength as himself a candidate, in a sale to Williamson he will carry strength enough to make success quite probable.—Dubuque Herald. y i i offered one hundred thalcrs to the Jewi soldier who should first obtain the gra|^ of officer by bravery on the battlc-fiek|} and fifty thalers to the Jewish soldier who should capture a flag from the enem Both prizes were gained by Corporal Su kind (of the firm of Wiener & Sus«kin of Breslau,) who. in the oombat nets Trautenau, on the 27th of June, capture^ a flag from the enemy, and for his bol& ness was forthwith promoted by the crown prince to the grade of officer.
