' People generally think that it a very easy matter to stand behind a counter and retail dry goods; but a week's experience in the Lu sinvss would convince the cleverest man that it is much more difficult and laborious than the Insk of turning a grindstone twelve hours per diem The office of saleman embodies, in its duties, necessity for the . hrewdness of a politician, tlie persuasion of a lover, t'ic po liteness of a Chesterfield, the patience of Job, snd the impudence of a pickpocket. There aresalesmen, who make it point never to lose a customer. One of the gentlemen who is in a store in Chatham street, not long since was called to show a very fastidious and fash ionable lady, who "dropped in whilr going to Stewart's," some rich silk cloaking. Every article of the kind was exposed to her view the whole store was ransacked nothing suit ed. The costly was stigmatized as trash, eve rvthine was common and not fit for a lady ! She tuessed she would to to Stewait'r. The salesman pretended to be indignant. "Madam," said he in a tone of injured inno cence, "1 have a very beautiful and rare piece of goods, a case which I divided with Mr. Stewart, who is my brother-in-law, but it would be useless. to show it to yuu. It is the onlv piece in Ihe city." "Oh, allow me to see it," she asked, in nn anxious ton, and continued, "1 bod no in tention of annoying you, or of disparaging the merits of your wares." The salesman, who was now watched in breathless silence by his fellow clerks, pro eeeded, as if with much reluctance, and with expression of fear that it would be injured by getting tumbled, to display an ancient piece of vesting, which had been lying in the store for five years, and was considered to be un saleable. The lady examined and liked it much. Thai was a piece of goods that was worthy to be worn. How much was it a yard? "Twenty-two shillings." . - "O ! lhat is verv hiiih." There," exclaimed he, beginning to fold it up, "I knew you would say that." 1 "Stay I stay ! don't be in so great a hurry," she cried, "I'll give you twenty shillings." "Madame, vou intuit me again.'1 - "Cut me off- yards, and you can make up tha deduction on some velvet which I require for trimmings," almost entreated tho fair shopper." The salesman after much persuasion, sold tha lady th vesting for which they had in vain sought to cet five shillings per yard,at the price above indicated. -, Tha profits of tha sal on viting and velvet amounted to $33, out of wbioh the clerks were permitted, to pay tor a supper of oysters. , Th best of this brief tal of dry-goods is to be told.. The lady had har cloak mad, and on or two of her frieods.d lighted with It. bought tha tea t.o( the vesting t the tame price, I . ITT It is said that one of the questions asked of a candidate for ini tiation Into the I he So ciety of Know Noth ings as follows. "Will you do your utmost on all occasions to renew and perpetu ate the potato rot, in order to keep the Irish out of the country f" The eandidate.if ad mitted, must respond "I will." "Only One." One hour lost in the morning, by lying in bed, will put back and may frustrate, all the business of the day. One hole in the fence will cost ten times as m u c h as it will to fix it at once. One drunkard will keep a family poor and in trouble. Effects of Wealth. He has imbibed a great error, wh 1 imig ines that the chief pow er of wealth is to sup ply wants. In ninety nine cases out of a hundred, i t creates more wants than it supplies. IT Application to business is worth more to his country than be born the heir to a for tune, for he whos!rug gels to achieve a com petence, leorns at ihe same time how to re tain it. ICTJohn Miller, Ihe man who was brought home from Havana a fuw days since, upon his confession of hav ing murdered a man , in Burlington county, N. J. invented the story of the murder for the purpose of getting a free pnssoee home to the United States. The freeaoilers of New Hampshire met n 1'tate convention nt Concord last week, and nominated Asa Fowler for governor. Capt. D, Pratt, wife, and son, lost in the Arctic, were rescu ed from his ship, the Poinoposta, which foundered at sea a few weeks ago, and had been carried into Liv erpool, whence they took passage in the Arctic. Forget injuries and remember benefits; if you grant a favor for get it, if you receive one remember it. "Sambo when am dat human race we hear so much 'bout was to come off! "Why, next 'lec tion, ob course." There is a moral to this anecdote, which we leave to be discovered by the ingenuity of our Iiiflv renders who nftrnsiiinallv ?i a shoimiiiff , . o II D Noah'i Meittnger. Jones Hooper's Last. The Montgomery Mail edited by Johnson J Hooper, alias S mon Suggs, has the following eood 'un: A correspondent of ours, writing us the othfr day, from Lowndes county, relates the follow inc anecdote of Judge P s : The Judge was holding Lowndes circuit court, and suddenly caught the eve of a wit tiers in a trial which was progressine. This man, the Judge thought, was making the most demoniac grimaces at him, and without a mo ment's hesitation, he ordered the clerk to en ter up "a fine of fen dollars against that man, for contempt of court," pointin? to the gentle man wha, carried the expressive physiognomy "Why what's that tor, Judge ?" exclaimed the unfortunate man. "Y u're making faces at the court, sir! There you are at it again, sir ! Mr. Clerk enter up not her fine of the some amount ag inst this man." Here our friend Tom J , interfered and ex plained Hint the per0!i fined, habitually look. ed as he did now was a worthy citizen; and never was "in contempt" in his life. "Very good, very good, Mr. J," said the Judge. "Let the fines be remitted; but this court has the general power to abait nuisances which mterlere with its administration 01 the law. Mr. Sheriff, carry this man at least two hundred yards from the court-housa, and see that he dosen't enter it again." That poor fellow, we should say, 'had it," very baiiiy. ' Manners. I make it a point of morality never to find fault with another for his manners; they may be awkward or graceful, blunt or polite, po, ished or rustic. I care noi what they are, if the man means well and acts from honest in tentions without eccentricity or affectation All men have not the advantages of "good so ciety," as it is called, to school themselves in all its fantastic rules and ceremonies, and if there is any standard of manners, it is omy founded in reason and good aense, and not unon the artificial regulations. Manners like conversation, should be extemporaneous and not atudied. I always suspect a man, who meets me with th same perpetual amile upon his faoe, the same eonjeering of the body, and the same nremeditated shake of the hand. Give me the (it roybe rough) gripe of the hand, the careless nod of recognition, am 1 Mka. M.M..In wnnifM.

The Faver and Hagur. A friend from Illinois tells us a rich anec dote of an Irish pack-pedler being afraid of tha "faver and hagur." Pat entered a small dwelling, situated ten'-' or twelve rods from the road, snd seeina no on in the building but a thin man stretched ant, , apparently resting himself ons rough box, used alike for table, bed, clothes press, and potato bin, be asked the occupant "if 'twould be convenient for him to give him a bit of some thing to ate." "There'a plenty of brown bread under that pile of rags, and corn whiskey in that jug," said the man; '-help yourself to what you want "It's a fine day, sir," ssys Pat, helping him self freely from the jug. , "Very," replied the man, lazily. " "And it's a beautiful State, is tbit Elle noise." "Beautiful !" "And sure sir, I think it's strange that anyX bothy should be sick in this beautiful Elle noise ; but they tell me that the people are sometimes furiously attacked with the faver and hagur." "O we think nothing of that," coolly re plied the man; "its as plenty with us ss fleas." "As plenty as Haze ! May the mother of Moses preserve us, but I wouldn't have the fa ver and hagur for every rnch of land that' in the inone, dirthy State that is." "Rut you can't help it." said the man. "The divil I can't !" exclainred Pat, pla cing the jug to his mou'h. and cocking his eya across the ntck of it at the same time. "Sure sir, I'll not go near a man that's tbrubled with the dirthy, frazing disease." "You'll have it in less than two hours," groaned the man, and he began to gape, and tremble, and impart a wild expression to hi eyes. Pat was again ramne the jug to his mouth t he stopped, rasped lor breath, as if the sudden and awful discovery had for the moment near ly sliipefird him, grabbed his pack of goods, ami with one bound was outside the cabin. Without stopping to let down the bars, he leaped Ihe fence, and ran down the road as if all the banislied snakes of Ireland were in pur suit. Our informant met him, and inquired the cause of his haste. "Dont stop me," says Pat rolling tip the whites of his large eyes; "1 shall be dead as a nagur in two weeks, if I don't shake off the faver and hagur that a dirthy spalpeen has just put upon me in the blackguard cabin that ia fornaust tha pond. O M"ses ! but I shall die if I have the faver and hagur. Boys out at Night. I have been an observer, and a sympathizing lover of boys. I like to see them happy, cheerful, gleesome. Indeed, lean hardly un derstand how a high-toned, useful man can be the ripened fruit of a boy who had not enjoyed the glad privileges due to youth. But while I watch with a very jealous eye, all righta aud customs which enlrencb upon the proper rights of boys, I am equally apprehensive lest pa rents who are not foreth rightful, and who are not habitunled themselves to close obser vations upon this subject, permit their sons in dulgences which are almost certain to result ia their demoralization, if not in their total ruin, and among the habits which I have observed tending most surely to ruin, I know of none more pre-eminent than that of parents permit ling their sons to be in the street after night fall. Boys should be taught to have pleasure at home, around the family centre-table, in read ing, in conversation, and in quiet amusements. Boys are seen in the street after nightfall, be having in a manner entirely destructive of all good morals. Fathers and mothers, keep your children home at night, and see that you take ptiins to make your homes pleasant, attractive, and profitable to them; aud above all, with a view of their security from future destruction, let them not become, while forming their char acters for life, so accustomed to disregard the moral sense of shame as to openly violate the Sabbath day in street pastimes, during its evening hours. . -.-i-,,. "The Mammoth Cave, of Kentucky, is the property of the family of Col. Crogan, former ly of Louisville. He purchased it about twent; yars ago, (in consequence of so many questions having been put to him in regard to : it whilo he was in Europe,) for the sum'of one hundred thousand dollars for bis purchase. His disposal of it when he died is thus referred to in a western paper: "In his will he tied it up in such a way that it must remain in his family for two generations, thus appending its celebrity to his name. There are 1,900 acres in the estate, though the cave probably runs under the property of a great number of laod owners. For fear of those who might dig d wn and establish an entrance to the caveon their own property a man's furm extending up to the zenith and down to the nadii great vigilance is exercised to prevent such subter ranean surveys and measurements as would enable ono to sink a s aft with any certainty. 1 The cave extends ten or twelve miles in sev eral directions, and there is probably many a backwoodsman sitting in his hut within ten miles of the cave, quite unconscious that the most fashionable ladies and gentlemen of En rope and America are walking, without leave, under his potatoes snd corn." ICT"Be; old, my Flora, how glorious nature looks in her bloom ! The trees are filled with blossoms, the wood is dressed ia ita green liv ery, and the plain is carpeted with gras and flowers."
