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
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

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
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
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

"Pooh!" said the father "yoolwre
only been frightened by your own shadow.
Just give me the light."
Saying this he seized the candle—leav

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

Sure enough the devil is in the cel
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
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,
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—
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
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.
Don't! don't! shouted several of the
fake along the Bible, if JOO do £01"
*iWhat does the
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,
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.
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
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.
A correspondent writes us from Prairie

Railway House in that place:
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

come to be considered s
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
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
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
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)
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.
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
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.''
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.''
