BATHERMIXED.
By the lake where drooped the willow,
Row, vassal*, row ;
1 want to b© an angel.
And jump Jim Crow
An old orow sat on a hickory limb,
None knew blmJmt to praise;
Let me kiss him for bis mother,
For he smell© of Schweitzer ha©c
The minstrel to the war has gome,
With his banjo on hi© knee,
lie awoke to hear the shriek,
There's a light In the window for thee.
A frog ho would a wooing go,
Ills hair was curled to kill;
He used to wear an old gray coat,
And the sword of Bunker Hill.
Oft in th© stilly night.
Make way for liberty J h»* crieu;
i won’t go home till morning.
With Foggy by n»y side
I am dying. Egypt, dying,
Susannah, don’t you cry :
Know how sublime a thing it is.
To brush away the Blue tailed fly.
The boy stood on the burning deck.
With his baggajco checked to Troy ;
One of the few immortal names,
His name was Fat Malloy.
Mary had a little lamb,
He could a tale unfold;
He had no teetli to eat a hoe cake ;
As his spectacles were gold.
Lay on, lay on, Macduff,
Man wants but little here below ;
And I’m to be Queen of May,
So kiss rae quick and go.
A Ghost Legend.
Sir Tristram Bercsford, who died on
the 16th of June, 1701, presents hut little
more for notice himself than that he was
one of the ancestors of the well-known
British family of that name; hut, through
his wife we are introduced to one of the
most strange ghost stories that have been
receded with strong appearance of authen
ticity. This lady was educated with John
second Earl of Tyrone, and when young
they both disbelieved the doctrine of a fu
ture state, in oruer 10 esiaonsu me juci
in the mind of the survivor, they agreed
that if possible, the one that died first
bhould return to inform the other. On
the 14th of October, 1093, the carl died,
and two or three days afterwards Lady
Beresford was observed by her husband
to appear at breakfast very pallid and care
worn in appearance, and with a black rib
bon tied round her wrist. He inquired
the cause of this, but she declined to give
any explanations, merely inquiring anx
iously for the mail, and saying that she
expected to bear of the death of the carl.
Sir Tristram made light of her fears, and
urged the impossibility of her knowing
anything of thekind beforehand. She re
plied that nevertheless, she was satisfied
that the earl had died on the Tuesday
previous at four o’clock. A letter was
shortly afterwards received, announcing
this as a fact; and on Wr Tristram’s ex
pressing surprise at the extraordinary oc
curance, Lady Berwford informed hiir.
that she had learned in the same manner
that the would before long present him
with a son. This, too. was verified. Con
liuuing to wear the black ribbon round
her wrist, her husband died without being
informed of the reason. She married
again, still keeping the secret, and on her
forty seventh birthday, which she thought
her forty-eighth, a clergyman congratu
late,! her on thcerror in that respect. which
he had discovered; whereupon she declar
> ed that if that was her forty-seventh birth
day, she had but a lew hours to live, and
forthwith proceeded to settle his affairs.
To a female friend she then related the
following story ;
Turing the night preceding the incident
at breakfast above referred to,she woke sud
denly and found the Karl of Tyrone stand
ing by her bedside. She screamed and en
deavored, blit in vain, to wake her husband
k ... ,k.. ... .1 ...k„ i. .
be roplycd that be had died on the Tues
day previous, that he had come to assure
her of the existence of another world, and
to tell her that she would bear a son to
Sir Tristram, would marry a second time
and have other children, and would die in
the forty-seventh year of her age. Doubt
ing the actuality of what prsscd. she asked
him for proof that it was not a dream or an
illusion. lie moved his hand and the
curtains raised as by magic ; but this did
not satisfy her; he pencilled his name in
her pocket-book ; still she doubted. Then
asking her to put out her hand, he laid hi.'
finger as cold as iee upon her wrist, which
was immediately impressed with a black
mark beneath which the flesh seemed
shrunk ; after w hich he vanished.
She removed thee the ribbon, showed
the mark, and presently expired in tht
arms of her friend. The ribbon and tht
pocket-book with the earl’s name in it
were in cxietenee at the beginning of tht
present century.
It is to be observed that ghost stories in
which the discoloration and shrivelling ol
the skin of the hand from the touch ol
spirits, are not rare. . Nhelaucthon, Rich
ard Baxter, Dr Henry Moor, Mts. Grant
and others relate them. The circumstance
of concealing the mark as Lady Beresford
is said to have done, appears to he peculiar
to her ease.
Vate of Dr. Livixoktok. — An extra
ol'the Times of India, dated the loth
tilt., contains the following letter :
“.Sir—One of the missing Sepoys,
21st regiment native Infantry, or ma
rine battalion, who accompanied Dr.
Livingston’s expedition, returned this
day from Zanzibar. Newt had been
received from the doctor. He was
alive and well, aud the havildar, 21st

-An old Dutch farmer bad a hand- J
some daughter, named Minnie, who
lately joined the Methodist Church,
against which the old farmer was
somewhat prejudiced. The young min-1
istcr, under whose instrumentality,
Miss Minnie was converted, visiting
[ her frequently, excited his suspicion
that all was not right. Accordingly,
1 he visited the church on Sunday night,
and seated himself, unobserved, among
| the congregation.
Soon after taking his seat, the niinis
I ter, who was preaching from Daniel V,
| 22, repented in a loud voice the words
of his text: ‘Mene, nienc, tekel nphar
=in,' upon which the old farmer sprang
to his feet, seised the affrighted girl by
the arm, and hurried her out of the
meeting-house. Having reached the
church-yard, he gave vent to his feel
ings in the words: ‘I knows dare vas ,
sometings wrong, and now I schwares 1
to ’em.’
‘Why, father, what'Do you mean?’|
replied the bewildered and innocent i
girl.
‘Didn't I,' shouted the old man, ]
striking his lists together and stamp
ing with’his foot, ‘didn’t I hear de par
son call out to you, ’Minnie, Minnie,
tickle de parson ?’
-A very amiable and modest wid
ow lady lived in a certain county.—
Soon nfter her husband had paid the
debt of nature, leaving her his legatee,
a claim was brought against the estate
by his brother and a process was served
upon her by the sheriff of flic county,
who happened to be a widower of mid
dle age. She was much alarmed, and
meefing with a female friend, she ex
claimed, with agitation : ‘What do you
think ? the sheriff has been after met
‘Well,’ said (be considerate lady, with
perfect coolness, ‘he is a very fine man.'
•But lie says lie lias an attachment for
me,’ replied the widow. ‘Well, I lmve
lojig suspected that he was attached to
you, niv dear.' ‘But you don't under
stand ; lie says I must go to court.'
•Oh! that's quite anothor affair, my
child ; don't you go so far as that—it is
his place to come and court you.’
SafA certain green customer, who was 1
a stranger to mirrors, and who stepped into j
the cabin of ono of our ocean steamers,
stopped in front of a large pier glass,
which he took for a door, and seeing his
i own reflection lie said :
•I say mister,'when docs this ere beat
i .-tart '!'
I Getting no answer from the dumb reflee
! lino before him, lie again repeated :
‘I say, mister, when does this ere boat
start ?’
Incensed at the silent figure, ho broke
out:

look as if you kuowed much anyhow !’

-Birth cards arc now issued in
fashionable circles, in Paris. Their
style is the following: ‘Monsieur de
X-lias the honor to inform you of
his birth, which took place day before
yesterday. Tie and his mother are as
well as may be expected.’
-‘Come till America, Pat!' writes
a son of tile Emerald Isle to his friend
in Ireland; ‘tis a tine country to get a

story building, and the man at the top

-‘Daughter, why do you not wear
your rings?’ ‘Because, papa they hurt
me when anybody squeezes my hand.’
‘What business have you, I would like
to know, to have your baud squeezed?’
‘Certainly none; but you know, papa,
