It happened one aututno that the late Lord Jeffrey, after the rising of the C» urt of Session, csme to spend the Ion* vacation in the parish of L-. Soon alter his arrival, the minister intimated from the pulpit that upou a certain day he would “hold a diet of catechising” in the district which included the dwelling of the eminent judge. True to his time, he appeared at Lord Jeffrey’s house, and requested that the entire establishment might be collected. This was rapidly done; for a I in ot*t all Scotch clergymen, though the catechising process has become obsolete, still visit each house in the parish once a year, and collect the family to listen to a fire-sido lecture. But what was Lord Jeffrey s con sternation when, the entire household being assembled iu the drawing-room, the worthy minister said in a solemn voice, “My L^rd, 1 always begin my examination with the head of the family. Will you tell me, then, ‘What is Effectual Calling?’” Never was a Edin burgh Reviewer more thoroughly nonplused. Alter a pau*e, during which the servants looked on in horror at the tboogbt that a judge should not know his Catechism, his Lordship recovered speech, and answered the question in terms which completely dumb founded the minister—“Why, Mr. Smith, n man may be said to discharge the duties ot bis calling effectually, when be performs them with ability aud success.”—Frazer’* Mayazine. _ _ PRESERVED CARROTS. Among the varieties of preserves io use, we see no good reasoo why preserved carrots and parsnips may not prove quite acceptable to a large number who are very fond of one or both of these esculents. A correspondent ol the S rntbern Cultivator gives the following recipe for the preparation of the former root: —“Take one pouod of carrots, one pound of sugar, and four lemons. Boils the carrots separately, and then cut them in small pie ces of an inch long, and a quarter of an inch thick; pare the lemons very thin, boil the peels thoroughly, and cut them like the carrots; then put in the juice of the lemons; boil the syrup over next day until quite thick, and after you have flavored it with the essence of lemou, pour it over the carrots agaiu. _ _ SUNDAY PARTIES. The English Churchman denounces Sun day parties in the following manner:—“We much regret to see symptom# ot ad intention to make Sunday figure in the “fashiona ble arrangements.” Hitherto those who have bad so little regard for the religious welfare of their domestics, to say nothing of their own, as to give dinner parties on Sunday, have, at a11 events had the deeeocy to keep them out of the court news-man's gossip. This defer ence in decency has, however, ceased to ex ist in some quarters. For instance, the “fash ionable announcements” ioforms us that the Earl of Westmoreland entertained at dinner on Sunday last, the Duchess ot Cambridge, the Princess Mary and a brilliant party.— This, of course, involves the employment of a large culiuary staff the whole day.” a Targe~fortune. The Worcester, (Mass.,) Spy learns that the estate of the late ex Governor Sprague, of i Rhode Island, amounts to over six millions ot dollars—a most remarkable fortune to be ac cumulated by a single family in one genera tion. _ i rnoiiAcco and cigar warehouse. ± —BAYNE & STEWART, No. 42, Kiso Street, Alexandria, Va.
