ST. PATRICK'8 DAY.
[Written while half tipsy over a solitary dinner,
March 17, 1818 ]
Though solns here I pick my bone,
Lax, And drown my shamrock all alone,
Yet ne'er the worse for that.
I'll fill and drink (to make Amends)
Both to and for all absent friends,
To honor thee, St. Pat.
And, faith, to thee Id rather quaff
Than any saint on Heaven's staff
That ever Pope iazetted;
Because to thee we Irish sinners,
Who love to sprinkle well our dinners,
Are very deep indebted.
r There's good St. Swithin-had he given
blic Instead of water-wine from Heaven.
for For forty dad a together,
Then truly for a moist "' set in"
W. Six weeks of wet would not have been
But oh I the houor gemmed with beads,
That in my glass this moment reads
The riot act, no frisky!
Sweet 'at, if e'er in humoreas Vein ;
Thou takest 't in thy head to rain
For heaven's sake rain whisky!
I wonder what in censure's way
The devil's lawyer had to say
Against thee, Pat-what had he ?
The worst that Eldon's self could prose,
The devil's lawyer he, God knows!
Would be to call the '" Paddy."
r. But let them call thee what they wil;,
Through life I'll love thy worship still.
And when my race is over
Let shamrocks crown my bed of sleep,
in Let whisky dew the shamrocks steep,
And friends say around me while they weep :
" Here lies a Pat in clover."
The Arduous Duties of Our Minister to the
Minister Comly in Columbus, Ohio, Journal.
Do you know what it is to the minister
to have a man-of-war visit his post? First
the admiral sends his staff officer to report
his arrival. Then they take a drink. Then
the minister runs up his flag, and sends a
dispatch to the Minister of Foreign Affairs
notifying his Majesty's government that
the admiral has arrived, and desires to sa
lute the flag. 'Then his excellency replies,
and sets the time when the admiral may
shoot, and his Majesty's big guns will be
all loaded ready to reply, gun for gun.
Then the bombardment takes places. Then
the admiral calls on the minister, with his
staff and all their good clothes. Then they
all drink. Then the minister goes aboard
). the man-of-war in his good clothes and in the
p admiral's yawl. Then they all drink.
a When he leaves the vessel, after being pre
0 sented arms to, and all kinds of bother, he
- gets only about 30 yards away when his
ears are torn and his head bursted by the
e big guns of the vessel firing a 15-gun salute.
The mariners have their oars peaked and
their eyes on the minister, and he is ex
pected to take off his hat and grin horribly
a ghastly smile, as if he really enjoyed the
honor of having his head bursted in this
way. Then the admiral comes ashore with a
his staff, and the minister takes him to call g
upon his Majesty's government. We go
first to the Minister of Foreign Affairs,who i
tells us when we may have an audience at
the palace to present the admiral and other
officers to his Majesty. Then we visit the g
other ministers, the Governor of Oahu, the tl
Justices of the Supreme Court and the Mar- I
shal of the Kingdom; then we take a drink. g
Then the admiral invites the minister to
lunch, and they take a drink. e
Next day or so, the minister takes the ea
whole party to the palace, and they are pre
sented in due form to his Majesty. The hi
admiral reads a little speech, in which he at
tells his Majesty how glad we are to see him, 81
and his Majesty reads a little speech in r
which he replies how glad he is to see us. ti
'.ten we talk awhile with all the grandees P
and after backing out of the presence sign
our names in a little book, and the admiral

neys relieved from the pressure of his
sword-belt as soon as possible. Meantime
all the other excellencies,representing every
country under heaven, have been sending
notes to the minister begging him to name
the happy day when it will please the ad- o
miral to send a boat for them to come on
board, and have a salute fired for them.
Then the Frenchman always gets mad be
cause he did not get as many guns as he d
thinks he ought to have had, and the min- L
ister has three months' correspondence on
Shis hands before that is settled. You think
it is all over.now? The trouble is only
about to begin. There are dinners, lunch
parties, dances, serenades,visits to be paid, P
and the devil to pay if the foreign repre
sentatives do not receive their return calls
before the week is out. Why, it is a posi
tive fact, we have been livying since last
September within five miles of the greatest

the army that opposed him; and to-day is
the first day I have found is possible to go
up and see it. That I ran away, literally, m
on the day before the mail closes, in order
to see iteven now, will I trust be a fact of
some significance. I have no time to write

What Sort of a Display the Agriculttral Do
partment WTi Makt
The Agricultural Department has been
allotted a ground space at the Paris Expo
position (75 feet square, in the center of
which will stand an ornamental structure
52 feet in diameter. The base is in the
shape of a five-pointed star, thus giving a
five sided building of 17 feet in diameter.
The star faces are 7 feet high and 15 feet
long, and are made of glass, behind which
various exhibits will be shown, and in the
panels will be inscribed the words of Wash
ington commendatory of agriculture. At
the points of each star are glass cases, sur
mounted by vases of different kinds of
American stone, in which will be shown
growing p!ants of the principal products
of this country,-corn, cotton, sugar, rice
and tobacco. The roof from the star faces
to the base of a cupalo of glass, which will
be filled in with growing plants, with the
exeaption of triangular spaces, in which
will be emblazoned the names of the 13
original States, of other States as they en
tered the Union and of the Territories.
The pillars which support the cupola will
be composed of corn from which half of
the husk has been removed, and the cupo
la itself will contain the poultry ibit.
Thle cupola is surmounted by a spire, at
the base of which will be a stand of Ameri
can flags and on the top an American eagle
perched upon a gilded ball. The eagle will
be stuffed bird and the finest specimen obh
tainable. It has not yet been exactly de
termined how to utilize the corner spaces
outside the building, but care will be taken
not to obstruct the view of this ornamental
structure. Special prominence will be giv
en to the leading products of the country,
and it is proposed to exhibit in one mass
at least one hundred bales of cotton. Man
ufacturers and producers throughout the
country are cheerfully co-operating with
the Commissioner of Agriculture, and the
Department will nodoubt be enabled to
make a very creditable display.-N. P.

" Miss Grundy," in one of her spicy let
ters from the Capital to the St. Louis Even
ing Post, says :
Gail Hamilton is also invaluable at din
ner parties. She is the readiest and bright

class of talkers who do not monopolize the
conversation. She draws others into it,en

as herself, the subtlest of flattery. She is
never didactie, but is always original, and
falls readily into the light vein which is
most agreeable in society.
The jolliest man to meet in company is
the Postmaster-General, who always seems
to be thoroughly enjoying himself. He
takes great pride in speaking of himself as
the Cabinet cu iosity. "When I traveled
around with the President," he says in
gleeful tones, half-laughing at himself the
while, "the people took almost as much
interest in looking at me as at him. It
was just because I used to be a naughty
boy." He takes a humorous delight in re
garding himself as the repentant sinner,
the symbol of the conciliatory poli y, and
his mirth-loving face radiates the refulgent
gleams of peace. It did not destroy his
self-congratulatory temper when I remind
ed him that be was not the first ex-Confed
erate who had been in the Cabinet, as Ak- I
erman was in Grant's Cabinet. "Oh,yes,"
he answered, "but he was reconstructed;
and I have never been." "Then," I re
apoended, "you have been conciliated. He
iprepresented the hard doctrine of reconstruc
tion, you the gentle one of forgiveness and t
peace." To this he gave a pleasant as- I

The death of Mr. Denton, of Delaware
county, Iowa, recalls a story which he used
to tell. In the early days of the Illinois
Central railway the line was not fenced,and
one day two cows belonging to a Metho
dist clergyman were killed. Being sued
for damages,the company resolved to make
a test case of it. The President of the road
directed Mr. Denton to take $500 in gold,
and go to Springfield and retain Abraham.
Lincoln, whom he knew well, for the copn
pany. Mr. Lincoln replied to his request,
"I am sorry you didn't come yesterday,
Nick, for I have been retained for the
preacher and his friends." Denton ex
plained fully the importance of the case to
the company, and then, pulling two buck
skin bags tilled with gold out of his pocket
he put them down on the desk before the
lawyer, with a startling chink, saying,
" Mr. Lincoln, the President of the compa
ny authorizes me to hand you this retainer
of $500 to take our case." Mr. Lincoln
jumped to his feet, flushed with anger.
"Nick Denton," he said, "I have given
my promise to that preacher and his friends
and the Illinois Central hasn't money
enough to buy me away from his aide. I
don't know that I shall ever get a dollar
from him-but I'll do my best to make your
company pay for those cows." Denton
said that be never felt so mean and small
in his life as he did at that moment. And
in 1860, though a Democrat, he used to my
during the Presidential campaign, that
Lincoln was the noblest man in America.

The Latest from Chi Mses.
The latest news from Chief Moses is to
the effect that he is trying to be friendly
with the whites and m order to conciliate
them, drove from his camp a few days ago
the two hostile Nez Peroes who sought
shelter there. These men fought with Jo
sepb during the campaign. They have
been received by Smohalla athis camp near
Priest Rapids. General Howard thinks
they will be surrendered without any
trouble. A brother-in-law of Chief Jo
seph, who was apprehensive of another
war, visited the fort at Walla Walls re
cently and informed the commanding offi
eer of his fear, saying he thought the sol
diers were "mad," and the Indians were
afraid. The officer communicated with
Genmral Howard, and the latter, to calm
their fear, sent the following dispatch last

The Freach half-breeds, who form about
'n one-fourth of the native population, gener
ally marry at a very early age. Agaimst
ee the marriage day Gabriel accumulates a
s- rich store of buffalo-meat and Jamaica
rum, and if possible, a fine cloth capote of
,f. cerulean hue, and ornamental leggings of
. bewildering beadwork. for the unmarried
half-breed in the consumatiou of his toilet
first pays attention to his legs. His cap
a may be old, his capote out at elbows, but
his leggings must be without spot or blem
ish. A legging of dark blue cloth, tied at
the top with a gaudy garter of worsted
work, and having a broad stripe of heavy
bead or silk work running down the outer
- seam, is his insignia of respectability.
Gabriel's marrinage takes place in the win
ter, when the cares of existence are light
- seed by reaaso of advances made upon the
labor of the elsuing season, or a generous
supply of provisions in hand from the late
fall hunt. On the appointed day he makes
a present of a few ponies or a quantity of
provisions to his prospective father-in-law.
and, accompanied by the paternal blessing
and a numerous crowd of friends, repairs
with Philomel to the chapel, where the of.
floes of some spiritual father makes the 1
twain one flesh. The ceremony over, all
concerned repair to the residence of Bab
tiste, Pascal or Antoine, who has agreed 1
for a consideration to permit the wedding
feast to be held in his house. Everybody
is free to attend the dancing and feast
which follow. The young bucks of the c
neighborhood array themselves in the be
wilderiig apparel, which is fashionable up- r
on occasions of this nature-a blue cloth
capote with brass buttons, black or drab c
corduroy trousers, the aesthetic effect of
which is destroyed by a variegated sash, J
with fringes pendent about the knees, moeo r

locks front the copious application of

- A r..L; Night as a Theatre.
Oe-- whuo I was a callow, bashful cub, I ft
took a plain, unsentimental country girl to t
a comedy one night. I had known her a
day; sihe seemed divine; I wore my no w a
boots. At the end of the first half hour
she said, " Why do you fidget with your
feet ?" I said, "' Did I?"--then I put my p
attention there and kept still. A: the end
of another half hour she said, "Why do
you say, ' Yes oh yes!' and ' fa, ha, oh
certainly! very true!' to every thing I say,
when half the time those are entirely irrel
evant answers?" I blushed, and explained a
that I had been a little absent-minded. At
the end of another half hour she said, h
" Please, why do you grin so steadfastly at It
vacancy, and yet lookeso sad?" I explaned a
that I always did that whet I was eflect- It
An hour passed, and then she turned and p1
contemplated me with her earnest eyes and bi
said, " Why do you cry all the time? " I
explained that very funny comedies always g
ansde me cry. At lasthuman nature surren- w
dered, and I secretly slippud my boots off. w
This was a mistake. I a, not able to get w
them in any more. It was a rainy night; in
there were no omnibusses going our wy ; fa
and as I walked home, burning up with
shame, with the girl on one arm and my
boo's under the other, 1 was an object b
worthy of some compassion, especially in pi
those moments of martyrdom, when I had
to pass through the glare.that fell upon the
pavement from theatreet lamps. Finally,
