A Model Shoemaker’s Bill.—
The following is said to be a true copy of a shoemaker’s bill, received by a gentleman in a neighboring town, whose family consists of four or live daughters: Mr. Dr. to J. S. To souling Miss Mary, $1 22 To stamping and welting Susan, 25 To binding and closing Ellen, 13 To putting a few stitches in Jane, 6 We wonder how the girls feel “about this time,” as the almanacs have it. Mrs. Harris says her “darter Jane was married only a little over a year, when she had “two boys, both sous.”— Smart gal, that Jane. The Pass Word. —Mr. Lord tells a good anecdote of an Irishman giving the pass-word, at the battle ofFoutcrey, at the time when the great Saxe was a Marshal. “The pass word is Saxe; now dont forget it said the Colonel to Pat.’ ‘Sacks! faith, I will not; wasn’t my father a miller?’ ‘Who goes there?’ cried the sentinel, after he had arrived at the post. Pat looked as confidently as possible, and in a sort of whispered howl replied. ‘Bags, your honor!’ The Providence Mirror announces the marriage of Mr. James Bee to Miss Martha Flower, of Athens, Pennsylva nia. Well hath the little busy “Bee,’’ Improved life’s shilling hour; He gathers honey now all day From one sweet chosen ‘Flower,’ And from this hive if Heaven please, He’ll raise a swarm of little ‘Bocs.’ “First class in sacred music, stand up. How many kinds of metres are there?” “Three, sir; long metre, short metre, and meet her by moonlight alone.” General Directory. Churches. Methodist Episcopal Church, Colum bia.
